The airline has been negotiating with the unions about a new pension plan, as it wants to switch from defined benefit arrangements to a collective defined contribution (CDC) scheme, with the company paying a fixed contribution for a number of years.The unions argue that KLM should compensate workers for the increased risk resulting from the new arrangements.The FD quoted Annette Groeneveld, chair of the VNC, as saying: “As things stand now, KLM would just pocket the money, and this would be very bad.”However, Erik Lutjens, professor of pensions law at Amsterdam’s Free University, suggested the unions might lose the case.“Whereas the Pensions Act prescribes that employers and employees conclude a pensions contract, the sponsor is to subsequently conclude a provision contract with an external party,” he said.“The contract for pensions provision is a matter between the employer and the pension fund. Workers are not stakeholders in this, in principle.”Employees have increasingly involved the courts in disputes over changes in contracts for pensions provision.Last December, the works council (OR) of insurer Aon lost its case against the employer, which, it claimed, had reneged on the pension agreement by changing the contract.APF, the Dutch pension fund of AkzoNobel, won a similar case.In other news, the Dutch Pensions Federation has published an updated version of its recommendations for reporting the costs of pensions provision.The industry organisation said the update provided “increased clarity, as well as auxiliary tools for comprehensiveness and comparability”.It said it clarified, among other things, the definitions of costs and calculation methods to increase uniformity, as well as how to deal with one-off costs and how costs as a consequence of tax could be reported.The Pensions Federation said pension funds would start reporting transaction costs in investment funds as of next year.These will include the costs of underlying funds at funds of funds, it added. The Association for Dutch Cabin Staff (VNC) and union FNV have launched legal proceedings against KLM in a dispute about plugging a funding gap at the company’s €2.6bn pension fund for cabin staff.Dutch financial news daily Het Financieele Dagblad (FD) reported that KLM refused to make €30m available.The amount had been demanded by the unions, as KLM claimed to have been relieved of mandatory payment obligations since the contract for pensions provision with the scheme was changed, according to the FD.It said the unions argued that KLM changed the contract without consulting or informing them.
An angry meeting has heard there are plans to slash day service supports to people with special needs and their families in Inishowen.The cuts will see a dwindling of services from five days down to three at centres in Buncrana, Carndonagh and Moville.News of the meeting at the Cashel na Cor Centre, Buncrana has rocked families who were informed of the proposed cuts to services. News of the plans have been slammed by Deputy Padraig MacLochlainn who attended the meeting.“The anger was palpable at tonight’s meeting. To target persons with special needs and their families is a new low. These families desperately need the support that they receive to give them the strength required to support their loved ones.“It was shameful for families as vulnerable as theirs to be given news like this. There has to be a threshold of decency for this Government and Minister Reilly and support for special needs has to be that threshold.“It is clear that the HSE have been instructed to make drastic cutbacks across the board with no instructions given on what services are untouchable”. The Donegal North East TD added that the people of Inishowen will not stand for this.He said they have rallied together and raised huge amounts of money for these centres.“It was clear from tonight’s meeting that this proposal will be fought tooth and nail. Soon, a delegation of parents, committee members from the affected centres and local public representatives including myself will unite together with one voice to meet HSE managers in Donegal.“We have one message for them and Minister Reilly. We will not accept our most vulnerable citizens being targeted for cuts. They need to get a Plan B,” he insisted.OUTRAGE AFTER MEETING HEARS OF CUTS TO SPECIAL NEEDS FAMILIES was last modified: September 4th, 2012 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:PADRAIG MACLOCHLAINNspcial needs cuts
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A dry day to start the week here today as strong southwest flow keeps temperatures above normal. We should see good sunshine through the day over most of the state with good dry down and low humidity values. Precipitation works across the state tomorrow, starting off around sunrise over the eastern third of Ohio, but building back west from there. All told, we can see a few hundredths to at least three quarters of an inch of rain over about 70% of the state. the higher rain totals will be in north central to northeast parts of the state, but a large part of Ohio can see a quarter to half an inch combined through the day tomorrow. All action should be done before midnight, if not before. We are dry for Wednesday. Thursday rain returns midday to early afternoon with showers and a chance for a few thundershowers. Then rain continues through Friday. Rain totals can be .25″-1″ with coverage at about 70% of the state. The best rains are on Thursday, and only a few scattered showers with 30% coverage on Friday. There will still be plenty of holes in the rain. Dry Saturday. Then on Sunday, we do have a few showers trying to sag southward out of the Great Lakes and Michigan. These can work down to at least around the US 30 corridor and would bring up to half an inch of rain. The southern half of the the state really doesn’t see any significant threat out of this event. Right now we will keep potential for scattered showers from I-70 northward, but may tweak that as we move along. The entire state is dry for next Monday.A strong front looks to arrive near the end of the 10-day window next Wednesday. This front is a slow-moving front and can bring rain totals of a quarter to .75″ 80% of the state at midweek. The map at right shows cumulative rain totals for Ohio now through next Wednesday. That front at the end of the 10-day period also will be the seed for a very wet 11-16 day extended period. We are seeing signs that the front stalls out draped over the state, and it may be responsible for precipitation all the way from next Thursday through the following Monday (the 15th). Rain totals combined over that 5-day window will be from half to 1.5” with coverage at 100% of the state. We then are drier, but still cooler for the 16th and 17th.Temperatures will likely average 10-20 degrees above normal now through midweek next week. We really do not see any cool down until we get behind the front that starts to bring moisture at midweek next week. But, if that front truly does stall out…we could see a significant temperatures spread across the state through the first half of the 11-16 day window. Still, with the warm air here, that would aid dry down in between moisture events, and gives hope that harvest can move forward.
When most people think about resilience — resilience to storms, for example — they think only about resilience during the event. Equally important, if not more important, I believe, is resilience in the aftermath of that event. Hurricanes, ice storms, blizzards, wildfires, tornadoes, and other natural disasters not only have an immediate impact, for which we may or may not be able to prepare, but they often have a much longer-term impact, usually through extended power outages.The same goes for terrorist actions; some suggest that smarter terrorists of the future may target our energy infrastructure or hack into power system controls to wreak havoc (cyberterrorism).In achieving resilience, I believe that our single most important priority is to ensure that our dwellings will maintain livable conditions in the event of extended power outages or interruptions in heating fuel. (I used to refer to this as “passive survivability,” but I came to realize that that term was too negative or dire-sounding to get much buy-in.)Here in Vermont, a resilient home is one that will maintain temperatures of, say, 50 degrees Fahrenheit without supplemental heat. The most important strategy for ensuring that those livable conditions will be maintained is by creating highly insulated building envelopes. I will cover other strategies, such as passive solar heat and solar electricity, in future blogs in this series. Below are the key strategies for achieving exceptionally good energy performance. RELATED ARTICLES Defining Habitable Temperatures Designing Homes and Communities That Can Survive a DisasterResilient CommunitiesResilient Design: Passive Solar Heat Designing Houses and Communities To Be Smarter and More ResilientResilience: Designing Homes for More Intense StormsMaking the Case for Resilient DesignBuilding Resilience for a ‘Close Encounter’ with DisasterGreen Building Priority #9 – Create Resilient HousesMaking Houses Resilient to Power Outages In this resilient design series, I’m covering how to achieve resilient homes and communities, including strategies that help our homes survive natural disasters and function well in the aftermath of any event that results in an extended power outage, interruption in heating fuel, or shortage of water. We’ll see that resilient design is a life-safety issue that is critical for the security and wellbeing of families in a future of climate uncertainty and the ever-present risk of terrorism.

Insulate extremely wellWe used to think that 2×6 walls insulated with fiberglass or cellulose were perfectly adequate relative to R-value — even defining that house as energy-efficient compared with standard construction (insulated 2×4 walls). It takes far more insulation to achieve the level of resilience needed to ensure that the house will maintain livable conditions without supplemental heat or electricity.Building Science Corporation, of Westford, MA recommends the 10-20-40-60 rule of thumb for insulation levels in homes in cold climates (roughly defined as homes north of the Mason-Dixon Line). This rule of thumb refers to R-10 for basement sub-slab insulation, R-20 for foundation walls, R-40 for above-grade walls, and R-60 for ceilings or roofs. That’s a lot of insulation, compared to typical practice in many parts of the country today, which might include no insulation under a floor slab, R-5 to R-10 on foundation walls, R-19 in walls, and R-38 in attics.Getting to these insulation levels is not easy. R-10 slab insulation requires 2 inches of extruded polystyrene or 2.5 inches of expanded polystyrene. R-20 foundation walls require 4 or 5 inches on the foundation exterior or an insulated 2×6 wall on the interior.Here are two options for achieving R-40 walls: double 2×4 walls held apart enough to achieve a ten-inch cavity and insulated with dense-packed cellulose; or insulating 2×6 studs with cellulose and then adding 3 inches of polyisocyanurate on the exterior. R-60 in an attic floor requires about 18 inches of cellulose.For more on insulation materials (a lot more!), you might be interested in my recently published report: Insulation Materials: The BuildingGreen Guide to Products and Practices. It’s available as a downloadable PDF file for $129.Install top-performing windowsThis level of energy performance calls for windows that achieve a unit insulating value of R-5 — that’s not the center-of-glass R-value, but the average R-value for the entire window, including edges and frame. National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) window energy performance labels list U-factor rather than R-value. (U-factor is the inverse of R-value.) Look for an NFRC-rated U-factor of 0.20 or lower.To achieve such superb energy performance typically requires triple glazing (three layers of glass or two layers of glass and a suspended plastic film) and at least one, but sometimes two, low-emissivity (low-e) coatings and low-conductivity gas in the space between the layers of glass. You can find windows today with unit U-factors as low as 0.15 (R-6.7). Such windows aren’t cheap, but they are increasingly available, and they do a great job at keeping energy consumption down and ensuring comfort.Very tight constructionReally well-insulated buildings should also be airtight. We don’t want uncontrolled air leakage bringing outside air in through the walls or basement; we want to be able to control where fresh air is brought in through a properly designed ventilation system. The Passive House certification program, which originated in Germany but is gaining traction worldwide, including in the U.S., requires airtightness of 0.6 air changes per hour at 50 pascals of pressure difference. (We measure air tightness using a “blower door” and often report that air tightness as an elevated pressure of 50 pascals.) I think a reasonable airtightness level for new construction is 1 to 2 air changes per hour at 50 pascals — not quite as tight as the Passive House standard.In the event of loss of power so that the ventilation system stops operating, windows can be cracked to provide fresh air, but most of the time ventilation systems should be operated to ensure good air quality in the home.New vs. existing homesAchieving highly insulated building envelopes is much easier with new construction than with existing homes. To achieve such performance with an existing home requires what is often referred to as a “deep energy retrofit.” More on that in a future blog._ _ _ _ _
Who is behind the Aros?Two names are important: Quirky, a company that helps bring ideas to market, and Garthen Leslie, PhD, the person who had the idea of the Aros smart window air conditioner. The former is another crowdsourcing company that acts as a sounding board for people from all over to develop their ideas and see if they can bring them to fruition.The latter is a 63-year old Washington, D.C. man with a background in computers and management. Although the Quirky website says he “spent time at the Department of Energy helping to cut costs and conserve resources,” his resume on LinkedIn and yatedo.com doesn’t mention the DOE at all. His degrees and career have focused on computers and management, not energy or building science.And that’s fine. Good ideas can come from anywhere. If a management guy can come up with an idea to save energy and make people more comfortable, more power to him. Somewhere along the way, though, I would hope someone who knows not just HVAC but the broader subject of building science would be involved to make sure the idea has merit and is developed properly.According to Quirky, the idea came to Leslie as he looked at all the window air conditioners in apartment buildings in the DC area and wondered how much energy they were wasting as they ran all day long. So, Dr. Leslie posted his idea to the Quirky website, and a month after they decide to go with it, they had a product that’s manufactured in China. GE is a partner in the project, presumably to add the technical punch that the Quirky innovators lacked. You can read more about it and watch videos on their site.It’s a great story, and Dr. Leslie is reaping quite a reward for his idea. He’s already received a check for $100,000 and is expected by the Quirky team to end up with perhaps ten times that much from Aros sales. Building enclosure firstNow here’s one of the most important principles of efficient air conditioning: Your air conditioner is the faucet; the building enclosure is the cup. You don’t want a leaky cup. Building enclosures can leak heat in more than one way: through air leakage, by conduction, and by radiation. This is building science 101. You stop those leaks by air sealing, insulating, and minimizing the amount of heat gain through windows.The absolute truth is that you’re better off with an air conditioner that has the minimum efficiency allowed by law and a really good building enclosure than you are with a 30 SEER ground-coupled, water-to-air model with a thermo-turbo encabulator max and a crappy enclosure. Or similar, since you’ll probably never find such a device, if you know what I mean. The point is, if you have any control over the building enclosure, it’s best to work on that before doing anything with the air conditioner. They do have their drawbacks, however. The main one is noise. With the compressor sitting right there, separated from you by a little bit of plastic, metal, and filter, you won’t be listening to the birds sing outdoors. In fact, you may not hear the birds sing indoors, unless you have a really loud parrot or get really close. (But who keeps birds in their house anymore? I don’t think I’ve been to a home with birds in decades.)Another drawback is the loss of use of the window you install the air conditioner in. You can no longer use it to cross ventilate for natural cooling, and it blocks natural light as well. You need coolingSometimes, though, the drawbacks just don’t matter. You need cooling. Baby, I’m not fooling. I’m gonna send you, Back to schooling.Ah, there goes my secret. Yes, I was a teenage boy in the ’70s. In fact, I recall listening to Led Zeppelin II one evening in the summer of ’77 on my 8-track tape player at my grandparents’ house as the window air conditioners were humming in the other rooms. (They had three.) I was writing a letter to no one in particular — and which, by the time I was done, I wanted no one to see. But that’s another story.These days, most single-family detached homes have central air conditioning. Even my grandparents’ house got it in the ’90s. Window air conditioners are more often used in big condo and apartment buildings at latitudes higher than where I’ve lived all but 7 years of my life (south of 39°). The DC area and north are where they prevail here in North America.In a big building, it can be difficult to run refrigerant lines to install any kind of split system air conditioner. Locating the outdoor unit might be difficult or impossible as well, so if you want cooling, the window air conditioner is your answer.Martin Holladay wrote a comprehensive article about window air conditioners a couple of years and concluded that they can save energy when used instead of central air conditioners. That’s debatable for us here in the humid Southeast, where it’s not all about cooling but controlling the humidity as well. Anyway, Martin discussed a lot of good stuff, including efficiency ratings and the difference between SEER, which is used for central air conditioners, and EER, used for window units. I recommend reading it. RELATED ARTICLES Window-Mounted Air Conditioners Save EnergyThe Magic of ColdThe Difference Between Air Conditioners and DehumidifiersAir Conditioner BasicsHot-Climate DesignCalculating Cooling LoadsUsing Ceiling Fans To Keep Cool Without ACKeeping Cool The story of window air conditionersIn the middle of the twentieth century, homes went from having no air conditioning to getting window air conditioners. The whole plot of the 1955 Marilyn Monroe movie, The Seven Year Itch, in fact, revolved around a window air conditioner. (And here’s a bit of trivia for you: It was in this movie that Marilyn Monroe had that famous subway breeze blowing her skirt up.) I experienced this myself when my grandparents first installed window units in their Leesville, Louisiana home in 1970.Window air conditioners are perfectly fine in many respects. They allow you to do zone cooling in your home without worrying about pressure imbalances and bypass ducts. They can be less expensive to operate than a central air conditioner because you don’t have to keep the whole house at the same temperature. The many duct problems I’ve written about in this blog aren’t an issue because they have no ducts. And they’re a lot less expensive to install. The IT world invades home performanceWhat bothers me the most about this is the disturbing trend I see: The disruption-obsessed, IT starter-uppers are looking everywhere they can to figure out how to make money with another app. Nest was so successful with their learning thermostat a couple of years ago that all eyes are now focused on the home energy efficiency market. There’s a lot of stupid money out there, and these folks are good at gobbling it up.This doesn’t have to be a bad thing — if they do what Nest did and bring in some building science experts. (Michael Blasnik consulted on the Nest thermostat and is now a Nest/Google employee.) The folks at Quirky could benefit from some of that, I’m sure. Their product isn’t bad, though. They’re just adding new features to a product that already exists and for which there’s a need.Recently I saw a scary product idea that exists only as a Kickstarter project right now. If it gets funded and finds its way into the marketplace, it will be worse than that compressor-killing outdoor unit cover I mentioned at the start of this article. I’ll tell you about that one soon.

The Aros smart window air conditionerNot everyone has such control, however, least of all those people living in big apartment or condo buildings. So window air conditioners have their place. If you’re in the market for such a device and want to get an efficient model, there are a lot of choices. The EPA website provides a list of all Energy Star certified room air conditioners, and I encourage you to download their spreadsheet to aid your search. You may also run across the Aros, billed as a smart window air conditioner.A “smart” air conditioner? This buzz word is one that I’ve grown weary of in recent years, as it usually means there’s a smartphone app associated with it. As you can tell from the photo below (Image #2), that is indeed the case here.In this case, the app gives you similar control over the Aros to what the Nest thermostat provides for your central heating and air conditioning system. And it goes even further. It connects to the GPS in your phone to turn the Aros on and off based on your proximity to home. Their website says it does so “in a non-creepy way,” though, so it must be OK.As far as the air conditioner itself, there’s not much new here. They do something a little different from most with the air flow by directing the conditioned air upward. Otherwise, it works like any other direct expansion air conditioning system.Repeat: There’s nothing really new about the Aros except that it can be controlled with a smartphone app. It’s not a new type of air conditioner. When it comes to air conditioning, there are a lot of bad products and bad ideas out there. Here are a few: You can buy a cover for your condenser that could kill your compressor. Some people don’t think the outdoor unit really needs to go outdoors. (They’re wrong!) And then there’s the strange notion that attaching a kraken to your air conditioner is a good way to distribute the air. Today, though, I’m going to look at a product that’s not terrible.Yes, I’m talking about the window air conditioner (also known as the room air conditioner or window shaker). I’ll discuss them in general first, but then I’ll take a look at a new product on the market, the Aros smart window air conditioner. The Aros isn’t a silver bulletThe Aros isn’t a bad idea. It may even save some energy and help people be more comfortable. Since the target market is people who live in big buildings and don’t have central AC, this may be one of the main things they can do to save energy.The ideal scenario is someone who lives in a big building, goes to work in the morning, and leaves their window air conditioner on all day so the place is cool when they come home. If they’re looking to upgrade to a new window air conditioner that doesn’t have to run all day, the Aros is one possibility. But is it the best choice?Plenty of window air conditioners have programmable thermostats. If you have a regular schedule, those will do what you need as well as the Aros. And if you go with an Energy Star certified model, you’ll probably find one that’s more efficient. At 10.9 EER, the Aros is in the bottom third of Energy Star room air conditioners.Judging by the reviews on Amazon (as of 15 July 2014), you’re better off waiting until they get the kinks worked out if you’ve got your heart set on a new Aros. The most common complaint is that it’s loud. Others are that the display is really bright and doesn’t go off (that may be fixed now) and that the app is a bit, shall we say, “small q” quirky.My advice would be to get a good Energy Star model that’s programmable. I’m not as down on the Aros as Lloyd Alter of Treehugger is; I just don’t think it’s the best choice. Maybe future generations of the Aros will be better, but for now, I’d say stick with the tried and true.

Jeremy Lin’s big 4th quarter leads Hawks past Wizards, 118-110 FILE – In this Saturday, March 29, 2014 file photo, Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer applauds fans after the English Premier League soccer match between West Bromwich Albion and Cardiff City at Hawthorns Stadium in West Bromwich, England. Manchester United announced Wednesday Dec. 19, 2018, they have hired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as its manager until the end of the season, bringing the Norwegian back to the club 20 seasons after he scored its winning goal in the Champions League final. (AP Photo/Rui Vieira, File)Manchester United turned to a popular former player by hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager until the end of the season on Wednesday, 20 seasons after he scored the winning goal in the Champions League final.Nicknamed the “Baby-Faced Assassin” during his time as a United player from 1996-2007, Solskjaer was known for his lethal finishing and ability to conjure up late goals typically as a substitute — none bigger than that close-range winner three minutes into injury time against Bayern Munich at Camp Nou in 1999.ADVERTISEMENT The arrival of Solskjaer did not come as a surprise.Late Tuesday, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg appeared to confirm Solskjaer was moving to United by writing on Twitter it was a “great day for Norwegian football” and wishing him “good luck keeping control of the Red Devils.” It was later deleted.Minutes after Solberg’s tweet, a page was published on United’s official website containing a video of Solskjaer celebrating after scoring the winner in the 1999 Champions League final. Under that, a post read: “Solskjaer becomes our interim manager, 20 seasons after clinching the Treble with THAT goal at Camp Nou…” That page also was later deleted.The 45-year-old Solskjaer is a sentimental choice as an interim manager — United has said it will look to hire a permanent replacement for Mourinho at the end of the season — and one that should prove popular with fans who have grown weary of watching the team under the pragmatic Mourinho.Solskjaer likes to play an attacking brand of soccer modeled on the sides of Alex Ferguson, who was his manager at United in that trophy-laden decade when the Norwegian won six league titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League. He has said on a number of occasions that coaching United was his dream job.ADVERTISEMENT Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola? TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening Solskjaer is a gamble, however. His only previous experience of Premier League management was with Cardiff in the second half of the 2013-14 season, and he could not prevent the Welsh team from getting relegated. He was fired a few months later, ending his spell with a record of only five wins from 30 games.In a coincidence, Solskjaer’s first game in charge of United will be at Cardiff on Saturday.Solskjaer’s playing career ended in 2007 after he failed to recover from a serious knee injury. He scored 126 goals in 366 appearances for United. He remained at the club in a coaching and ambassadorial role, and went on to become its reserve-team manager from 2008-10.He coached Molde — his former club — from 2011, winning back-to-back titles in his first two seasons and then the Norwegian Cup in his third. He returned there after his nine-month stint at Cardiff.“Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles,” United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said. “His history at Manchester United means he lives and breathes the culture here and everyone at the club is delighted to have him and Mike Phelan back.“We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.”___Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
