This little terrier dog will “paws’ for thought the next time he plans to chase a kitten into the engine of a car.Dooey the cross-terrier thought he would give the kitten a run for its money when he spotted it outside the family home in Letterkenny.A chase ensued but although the fluffy kitten managed to escape, Dooey got his paw caught in the engine of the family car. What followed was a rescue operation which lasted three hours and involved more than half a dozen people.Local animal rescue volunteer Adrienne McGlinchey was called about the trapped family dog and dashed to the scene.Not able to free the dog, Adrienne summoned the help of local kitchen company owner Joe O’Donnell who was working nearby at College Farm Road.A worried Dooey stuck in the car engine.Finally, after hours of working together before eventually taking off the wheel of the car, Dooey (named after the Donegal beach!) was freed. Owner Patricia McGinley said Dooey has been grounded but is still keen to chase cats outside the family home.“It was such an ordeal. The kitten managed to escape but Dooey wasn’t so lucky.“It took us almost three hours to get him out and he was a little worse-for-wear. His poor little paw got caught but he’s fine now.“He still hasn’t learned his lesson and he’s waiting at the front door to get out into the car engine again.“But he’s grounded. We just can’t ground him forever. We’re just hoping he forgets it and doesn’t go exploring up into the car engine again,” she laughed. A very happy Dooey after he was released from the engine.Trapped dog certainly won’t ‘Dooey’ that again! was last modified: August 19th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:carDOGdonegalDooeytrapped

Over the next ten weeks, I’m going to lay out my top-ten priorities for green building—starting, in Lettermanesque fashion, with #10 and working up to #1. These priorities are directed primarily toward the design and construction profession, but homeowners having a house built or work done on a house need to be part of this discussion too.This shouldn’t be thought of as a hard-and-fast priority ranking. Of necessity, I’ve had to average the various considerations. In some places, where it’s extremely dry, for example, or where the ecosystem is pristine, my priority rankings would be quite different. And if I were addressing solely existing buildings or solely new construction, my rankings and some of the measures might vary. Here, I’m taking both new construction and renovation into consideration.My hope is that this will be a good conversation starter. I expect some readers will be surprised at what attributes I consider to be more—or less—significant as we work toward creating greener homes. The bottom line is that all of the priorities I will cover are important in most situations—and there are lots of other greening strategies we should try to address, even if they don’t make it onto this list.Priority #10: Make it Easy for Homeowners to be GreenHow we operate our houses and how we live our lives have huge bearing on our impact on the environment. There are some things we can do in building or renovating a house to make it easier for homeowners to live greener lives. A few of these measures are described here.Provide instructions on operating the house. It never ceases to amaze me that a new house doesn’t come with an owner’s manual. You wouldn’t expect a new car to come without guidance how to operate and maintain it; shouldn’t we expect the same with something we’re spending ten or twenty times as much money on? This owner’s manual should explain—in plain English—such issues as how to operate and maintain heating and cooling equipment, the importance of cleaning out gutters, what homeowners need to know about operating storm windows, why it’s important to always use the bathroom fan while showering, and how to inspect for termites or other problems. A homeowner’s manual is also a great place to aggregate all the information that comes with appliances, HVAC equipment, and any other systems in the house.Install easy-to-use comfort controls. Programmable thermostats can save a lot of energy and money—if they’re used properly. Provide thermostats with intuitive controls that are easy to understand, easy to set, and easy to override. Include instruction on the use of such controls, and explain how their proper use will save both energy and money.Make it convenient to recycle. Most homeowners are glad to do the right thing when it comes to living responsibly, including recycling much of their solid waste. But it needs to be convenient. Providing built-in, easy-to-clean, hidden storage for recyclables (paper, bottles, cans, plastic) will make it more likely that the homeowners will actually recycle their waste. Storage should be adaptable, but tailored to local options for recycling. If there’s curbside recycling using supplied plastic containers for recyclables, design the storage to handle those bins. If homeowners have to drive materials to a recycling facility, provide more space (perhaps including secondary storage in the garage) so that fewer trips to the recycling center are necessary.Make it easy to leave the car home. Convenient storage of bicycles might inspire homeowners to bike more often, avoiding the use of their car—keeping the air cleaner for us all.Make it easy to hang laundry outside. If a homeowner has to traipse laundry through the house to get outside, it’s going to discourage line-drying. Think about this when planning the location for laundry equipment. And install a clothesline.Create spaces that are easy to keep clean without harmful chemicals. There are some simple measures that can help keep houses cleaner; among the simplest are track-off mats at entryways and a convenient place to keep slippers to change into when getting home. And some materials don’t require as much cleaning; with porcelain toilets and sinks, for example, look for high-gloss surfaces (SanaGloss¯ in the TOTO line, for example) that are designed for easy cleaning.Make it easy to appreciate nature. Homeowners who look out a kitchen window at a beautifully landscaped native garden, or city residents whose apartment windows face the graceful branches of a tree that’s hanging on despite the limited green space, may gain more appreciation for the natural world and become more invested in protecting the environment.What else comes to mind? How could your own house have been designed or built differently to make it easier for you to live a greener lifestyle?

Implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations, free education for girls up to the graduation level, supply of purified drinking water to every household, free health insurance, one job for each family, free smartphones to students, regularisation of contractual staff and higher wages are the highlights of the BJP’s Vision Document for Tripura.Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday released the 30-page Vision Document as party manifesto for the February 18 Assembly elections.Mr. Jaitley said the NDA government at the Centre would support the implementation of the promises if the alliance of the BJP and the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura was voted to power. He said the Left Front government, during its long rule, had failed to implement any welfare programmes despite huge support from the Centre.“This is why we see a huge anti-incumbency feeling prevailing in the State. It’s like a revolt situation against the CPI(M),” he said.He said the CPI(M) would be left to fight for the third or fourth place in the elections. “The BJP has occupied the non-Left political space of the State to fulfil the wishes of the people,” he said.
Former Goa tourism minister Dilip Parulekar of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday appeared before the Mapusa Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Shantashri Kudchadkar in the Serula Comunidade cheating and land grab case. Mr. Parulekar and the two other accused — Peter Martins, the then attorney of Comunidade of Serula, and Irene Sequeira, then administrator of Comunidade of Bardez were released on a surety and bond of ₹10000, with the case adjourned to September 4.Comunidade is a village land commune inherited by Goa, an erstwhile Portuguese colony.Justice C.V. Bhadang of the Bombay High Court on June 22 had directed the trio to face trial for offences under Sections 119, 120, 420 read with 120-B of the Indian Penal Code.On a petition filed by Advocate Aires Rodrigues, the Mapusa JMFC on January 16, 2014 had directed the Porvorim Police in north Goa to register an FIR against Mr. Parulekar, Mr. Martins and Ms. Sequeira for the same.Mr. Rodrigues in his complaint had said that a prime land at Porvorim near here was given away to Mr. Parulekar without any auction and without following the procedure under the Code of Comunidade and that the whole intention was to fraudulently facilitate the doling out of prime Comunidade land to the then Minister.
The regional office of the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board has recommended ₹90,23,437.50 in fine on the National Highways Authority of India for violating the rules for dust abatement on construction sites. UPPCB Regional Officer Utsav Sharma told The Hindu that the NHAI had not adopted the dust abatement measures notified by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change. “The fine has been calculated on the basis of the guidelines issued by the Central Pollution Control Board for penalising defaulters,” he said. The NHAI, which was penalised last year too, is into expansion of National Highway-9 in Ghaziabad in Gautam Buddh Nagar, and Hapur. “Our teams have been maintaining vigil to identify sources contributing to Particulate Matter 10 and Particulate Matter 2.5 in the region,” Mr. Sharma said. Mr. Sharma said the present Air Quality Index of the region was in the poor category, and with unfavourable weather conditions forecast, things were not expected to improve in the near future. The UPPCB has asked that under-construction materials, handled on-site, be covered and dust-breaking screens be erected wherever necessary. “None of these measures is being adopted on the project site,” he said. It also recommended a fine of ₹50 lakh on two factories in Ghaziabad district for burning plastic in boilers.
Just a day after the Chinese received applause for their innovation and precision at the opening ceremony of the Asian Games, the tech-savvy Chinese proved they can also be prone to errors.The opening day of the weightlifting competition at the distant Dong Guang gymnasium saw several glitches interrupting the men’s and women’s programmes. Nevertheless, they went off peacefully with the Chinese showing their supremacy in both the sections.But it was not just about the glitches at the gymnasium. Even before that the scribes had to go through some ordeals, including the one-and-half-a-hour ride to the gymnasium. The 88-kilometre trip from the main media centre to the venue was not the only issue. After the two easy group events where the Indians participated, one had to wait for nearly six hours for the other group events before the results could be known.Then, there was the real issue of how to return to the main media centre. With just two trips – one at 1:30 pm and the second at 10 pm – the ordeal of a scribe was complete.To make matters worse, an unnecessary euphoria was created back home just after the Group B results where both India’s V Srinivasa Rao (56kg) and women’s 48kg lifters Soniya Chanu and Sandhya Rani Devi finished atop their respective groupsRao topped Group B Soniya and Sandhya upped the ante so much that there were scores of calls from several Indian journalists covering other disciplines at different venues.The ground reality was, however, different. In fact, the Indian duo was lucky to find themselves in an easy group where they had to contend only with a Vietnamese and a Bangladeshi. Naturally, Soniya did what was expected of her with a total lift of 170kg (75+95) while Sandhya was just behind her with a total lift of 158kg, giving rise to further hopes.advertisementThe status remained static for six hours until Group A lifters emerged on the scene. Without much ado, the Chinese and North Korean lifters in the men’s section finished one-two while Chinese and Taipei lifters took the gold and silver in the women’s section, pushing the Indians way behind.Sandhya perhaps knew the results even before a few of us. “I have done my best and I am happy. But the Chinese and Thai lifters are too good,” she said before disappearing from the scene quickly.- By S. KannanWomen thrash Malaysia 4-0 in opening hockey matchIndias Jasjeet Kaur Handa (left) tackles a Malaysian player during their Group A match in Guangzhou on Saturday.The Indian women’s hockey team outclassed Malaysia 4-0 in their opening Group A match to start their Asian Games campaign on a rousing note at the Aoti Hockey Field in Guangzhou on Saturday. The feature of the victory was that all the strikes were field goals.The 2006 bronze medalists and 1982 gold medal winners led 1-0 at half time before pumping in three more goals in the second period to complete the rout. Thokchom Chanchan Devi (26th minute), Deepika Thakur (43rd), Rani Rampal (53rd) and captain Surinder Kaur (67th) were the goal scorers.India will play Japan in their next group match on November 16. Against Malaysia, India were by far the better side on display under lights as they controlled the game for the entire 70 minutes.After having the better of the play, India took the lead when Chanchan Devi slotted home the ball after receiving a pass from strike partner Rani, who dribbled her way past two defenders to set it up for Chanchan.After the breather, the Indians were right on the attack and kept the pressure on the rival goal through Rani and Deepika. It was Deepika who doubled the lead after receiving a Jasjeet Kaur Handa pass from the baseline. Rani then made it 3-0 10 minutes later after cleverly wrongfooting Malaysia goalkeeper Yahya Farah Ayuni.The Malaysians could have pulled one back but the woodwork came to India’s rescue in the 57th minute off a penalty corner before Surinder sealed the victory for her side three minutes from the hooter.Assistant coach Khalid Modi expressed happiness over the positive start but added that the team management was taking it match by match. “It is a very good start as the Malaysians are very tough opponents. We have crossed our first hurdle, but cannot be complacent,” he said.In the day’s other matches, South Korea drubbed Thailand 5-0 while Japan overwhelmed Kazakhstan 4-1.Indians crash out despite Saina and Kashyap’s heroics Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap’s fine victories came to nought as the Indian women and men’s teams lost to Indonesia and Chinese Taipei respectively in the team championships at the Asian Games on Saturday.advertisementIn the women’s tie, India squandered a 2-0 lead before losing 2-3. It was Saina who gave India a winning start by beating Adriyanti Firdasari 21- 16, 21-17 in the first singles in just 30 minutes. Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponappa consolidated the lead by beating Greysia Polli and Meiliana Jauhari 21-17 17-21 23-21 in 44 minutes. But Aditi Mutatkar’s 10-21,16-21 loss to MF Kusumastuti started the slide.Aparna Balan and Prajakta Sawant’s 11- 21,11-21 defeat against Liliyana and Maheshwari Nitya Krishinda locked the tie 2-2, after which, Arundhati Pantawane lost the fifth and decisive rubber 9-21, 10-21 to Linda Wenifanetri.In the men’s event, Arvind Bhat fought hard but had to bow to Hsing Yu Hsieh 28-26, 15- 21, 21-13 in the opening match. India desperately needed a win from Sanave Thomas and Akshay Dewalkar in the doubles rubber but they lost 19-21, 17-21 to Chieh-Min Fang and Sheng Mu Lee.But Kashyap kept his team afloat by recording a comefrom- behind win over Hsuan Yi Hsueh. The Commonwealth Games bronze medallist won 18-21, 21-13, 23-21 to give hope to India. However, this hope was stubbed out when doubles pair V Diju and Rupesh Kumar lost 17-21, 20-22 to Hung Ling Chen and Yu Lang Lin. Ministry pulls the plug on equestrian teams The Equestrian Federation of India’s (EFI) claims of everything being alright with its quarantine procedures has already been proved wrong, with Chinese authorities refusing permission for Indian horses to be sent to Guangzhou.Now, even the sports ministry has acknowledged the EFI’s mismanagement, retracting its permission allowing the team to compete at the Asiad. In a letter to the EFI, under secretary SPS Tomar wrote: “It is learnt that horses are yet to leave Bangalore, where they have been quarantined because full clearance from Chinese authorities is still awaited. The government has taken a serious note of the mishandling of the entire matter by the EFI, and under these circumstances, the government is constrained to withdraw the approval for participation of the equestrian team in Asian Games 2010.”Tomar has written another letter to the IOA, withdrawing the approval given to slalom canoeist Vikram Singh Bhandari. As reported by MAIL TODAY, Bhandari’s name was not in the team selected by the SAI, but was cleared after the IOA decided to act on the whims of the de-recognised Indian Kayaking and Canoeing Association. This body is being investigated for misuse of funds. Women lose Men win in Tennis openers India had mixed luck in tennis as the team competitions began at the Asian Games on Saturday. In the absence of Sania Mirza, the women’s team lost 0-3 to Indonesia, but the men made up for the disappointment by defeating Qatar 3-0. While it was no surprise that Somdev Devvarman won his singles match 6-0, 6-1 against Shanan Mousa Zayed, comeback man Karan Rastogi warmed up with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Jabor Mohammed al Mutawa.advertisementFrom India’s point of view, Rastogi’s win was a good sign. As one who spent a year out of action following a back injury, he has worked hard on his comeback in ITF events. In doubles, Somdev paired with Sanam Singh to defeat Mubarak Shannan Zayid and Abdul al Hareth 6-0, 6-1.The disappointment of the day came in the women’s team event where India lost to Indonesia. Sania, still recovering from an ear infection, did not play. Rushmi Chakrvarthy should have played the second singles. However, with coach Enrico Piperno opting for Nirupama Sanjeev, it turned out to be a rout.Talking about the decision to drop Rushmi, Piperno said: “My decision backfired. The point is Indonesia was a strong team and we had very little chance.”Speculation is that Sania will pair with Somdev in mixed doubles. Rohan Bopanna, who has failed to qualify for the year-end ATP finals, may arrive to play here.- By S.

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar set new records on Tuesday when he scored his 51st Test century against South Africa in Cape Town.A look at his recordsThis is Tendulkar’s second ton in Cape Town.He is the first non-South African to score two Test centuries in Cape Town. His first century came during the 1996-97 tour when he scored 169.This is Tendulkar’s 5th ton on South African soil – the maximum by any overseas batsman. Englishman Wally Hammond and Aussie Neil Harvey had scored four apiece.This is Tendulkar’s 7th century against South Africa. Only Neil Harvey and Ricky Ponting have scored 1 more.Amazingly, this is his 12th Test ton after turning 35. England’s Graham Gooch is the only other batsman to hit as many Test centuries after the age of 35.An indication of his spectacular overseas performance is that he has scored 29 Test centuries away from home – the highest by any batsman.
