Background talking We'd like to congratulate you on this wonderful building and this wonderful achievement. Thankyou very much. Nasrgtgt To receive the LEED Platinum certification for the building, they have to collect data for an entire year to validate all the design concepts that we implemented in the building. So to actually receive it. and receive it by a good margin. is very exciting. Mooregtgt For RIT it's a really special building LEED Platinum is an amazing accomplishment for a building this size and its function. It is a an amazing accomplishment. I don't think we'll see a building.
This large and with this kind of function be LEED Platinum for a while. Williamsgtgt Well, it's in the one percent of all the LEED rated buildings throughout the country so it's one the highestperforming buildings that has been built to date. We actually produce, with the fuel cell and that photovoltaic panels on the roof, about twoandahalf times the energy consumption in the building. So, it that puts back energy into the campus grid for utilization in other buildings here on campus. Nasrgtgt You know that the significance of this is that we, as an Institute for.
Sustainability, that promoting green technologies effective economical technologies that address many of the challenges that we face from building to energy to transportation. it is really exciting to be in a state of the art building. In a building that actually acts as a demonstration facility, acts as a living laboratory, where the students can actually see things in action, can see how our onsite energy generation is working. It's an extension of our labs, so it's very economical in that fashion. And also the building is designed in a way that allows us to actually.
Stanford Start.Home Building Materials
We took the idea of sustainability beyond just energy and water into our materials. And we used reclaimed redwood and Douglas Fir that came off of houses from 40 to 50 years ago all over the South Bay. The wood was remilled up at Jasper Ridge where the house is going to finally rest, and brought down to us at the university and installed throughout the home. So it gives us a really beautiful finish as well as the advantage of not having used any brand new trees. All of our structure and walls were built.
Out of a structural insulated panel system which comes as prefabricated wall sections with four to eight inches of foam sheathed in two pieces of plywood. That made it really easy for us to build the house quickly and get a very airtight house and a high insulation value across the whole structure. Continuing that theme, we used windows that give you the same energy efficiency as standard double pane windows in the glass, but also use a frame that doesn't have vinyl. So you don't have the toxic byproducts of typical windows that are on the market.
Another cool product that we use is a phase change material that we installed in the ceiling below the drywall. And what this does is it melts as the house warms up during the day to absorb a lot of heat right around 72 degrees Fahrenheit, where you're most comfortable, without actually changing the interior temperature of the room. So it stores all that heat during the day and then when it starts to cool down at night, rereleases it by freezing back into a solid gel, therefore allowing the house to stay warm later into the.

You Have a Patent Litigation Case Scheduling Conference Chicago Patent Attorney Rich Beem
You have a patent infringement litigation. I'm Rich Beem. I'm a patent attorney in Chicago. After we prepare a case management plan and a budget, and after the pleadings are set, the complaint is filed, there's an answer with affirmative defenses and counterclaims, what happens next Well, the next big thing is the scheduling conference that occurs between counsel. And it's important to know going into that scheduling conference what we want to accomplish. What kind of discovery do we want What kind of discovery do we want to provide How many documents do we have How many documents do.
We think the other side has How much electronically stored information or ESI do we have and in what form are we comfortable producing it, even under a protective order How much ESI does the other side have and in what form do we want to receive it from them Do we want it in native form Or would it satisfy us to have it in PDF format These are the things that need to be thought about in a scheduling conference and put into the scheduling order. How fast do we want the case to go.
How soon do we expect to be ready for trial Those are things that go into a scheduling order. And then next is discovery. There are several forms of discovery. There are written requests for discovery, including requests for documents and electronically stored information. There are interrogatories, where we ask questions, in order to obtain information from the other party where they officially state their position in a verified form. And there are requests for admissions that can simplify the case. We use all of those forms of written discovery in order to obtain the information that we.
Will need for trial. Now, associated with discovery in a patent case, it's very common for there to be discovery disputes. What is the scope of discovery How many documents should we get What should those documents include What kind of electronically stored information should we get Should we get all of the emails Should we get correspondence with customers Those are the kind of things that get involved in discovery disputes. And when necessary, we file motions with the court. And if the other side is asking for too much we can.
Tell them that we are not going to provide the discovery, we can either move for a protective order or let them move to compel the discovery and respond to their motion. We are located across the street from the Chicago federal courthouse where we are in court month in and month out, handling patent infringement cases including the motion practice. It's very convenient for us to be there and we're used to being there. Chicago happens to be one of the leading jurisdictions in the country for patent infringement cases. We also handle those.
5 Awesome Tricks Pranks With Dry Ice!
In this tutorial you'll see 5 different party pleasers done with dry ice. 5. Take a flaming candle, and place it down into a container like a bowl or a glass. Carefully pour some crushed dryice, down around the base of the candle. And within just a few seconds, you'll notice the flame goes out, and the gas turns completely invisible. Now challenge one of your friends to try and relight the candle inside the glass. They won't be able to do it and they'll have no idea why. Even after multiple attempts, the flame goes.
Out every time. 4. For this trick, find a block of dryice, and break it into pieces the size of small rocks. Carefully place one or two of the pieces inside of a balloon, and tie it off. You'll notice the balloon begins to inflate all by itself. Now try doing this with a bunch of other balloons and throw them all into a basket. Over the course of about 25 minutes, the balloons will keep growing, until you've got a basket overflowing. 3. Start this prank by opening up a Ziploc bag and adding a few chunks of dry ice, followed.
By a little bit of warm water. Now seal the bag so it's completely airtight, and find a place to hide it. After a minute or two, the bag will be completely pressurized and ready to explode. Who could you scare with this 2. For this party trick, take a large metal spoon and press it down into a block of dryice. It lets out an awful squeal, and people will beg you to stop. You can make a quarter scream the same way. Just lay it flat on the ice, and press down into it. For a bonus trick.
Try sticking the quarter in sideways, it'll start shaking uncontrollably. 1. For this last trick, add some crushed dry ice into a large clear bowl. At this point, try blowing the biggest bubble you can, and drop it right into the center. Instead of popping on the bottom, it levitates around in midair, and will make your friends wonder, what kind of sorcery is this Well now you know a few tricks, and pranks with dry ice, that are super cool, and easy to do. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some of my others. Check them.
Kentucky lawmakers reflect on 2015 General Assembly
AND DEALING IN FRANKFORT RIGHT NOW AND THEY COULD BE THERE UNTIL MIDNIGHT. TODAY IS THE LAST REGULAR DAY OF THE 2015 GENERAL ASSEMBLY. WLKY'S MARK VANDERHOFF WAS IN FRANKFORT AND SPOKE TO SOME LOUISVILLEAREA LEGISLATORS ABOUT HOW THEY THINK THE SESSION WENT. THAT DEPENDS ON WH00000 O YOU ASK AND WHICH ISSUE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. THERE ARE STILL SOME MAJOR ISSUES THAT HAVEN'T BEEN TACKLED. Jimmy Higdon We'll have probably close to a thousand bills filed in this session, and when it's all said and done probably somewhere between 50 and a.
Hundred will actually pass. REPUBLICAN SENATOR JIMMY HIGDON OF LEBANON SAYS KENTUCKY'S 2015 GENERAL ASSEMBLY HAS BEEN PRODUCTIVE. EVEN IF ONLY A SMALL FRACTION OF BILLS PASS. SO FAR, BOTH CHAMBERS HAVE APPROVED BILLS TO CREATE MORE OVERSIGHT OF PUBLIC PENSIONS. PROHIBIT LARGE BREWERIES FROM OWNING BEER DISTRIBUTORS. AND ALLOW TELEPHONE COMPANIES TO GET RID OF SOME LANDLINE SERVICE. DEMOCRATIC REPRESENTATIVE REGINALD MEEKS OF LOUISVILLE SAYS THERE IS TOO MUCH UNFINISHED BUSINESS. Reginald Meeks Unfortunately, it may well be that when all is said and done, more will be said than done.
NOT YET PASSED ARE BILLS TO COMBAT HEROIN. EXTEND PROTECTIVE ORDERS TO DATING RELATIONSHIPS. AND FULLY FUND THE TEACHERS' PENSION SYSTEM. REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVE JERRY MILLER OF LOUISVILLE TRIED TO PUSH FOR SOME CHANGES TO THE LOCAL SALES TAX OPTION BILL. Jerry Miller I think had they made some modifications in the House, it might have had a better fate in the Senate. THAT BILL PASSED THE HOUSE, BUT DIED IN THE SENATE. SENATOR GERALD NEAL OF LOUISVILLE, THE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS CHAIRMAN, SAYS HE WISHES THE SENATE WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE BILL A VOTE.
Gerald Neal What has to be done here is you have to put your nose to the grindstone and engage it for what it is and try to come to a good outcome. THERE'S ALWAYS NEXT YEAR, NEAL SAYS. Jimmy Higdon They always kind of compare it to making sausages. It's not a pretty process. The end result is always good, but the process, it's not for the fainthearted. THERE IS STILL TIME FOR SOME BILLS THAT DON'T GET VOTES TONIGHT. THE LEGISLATURE WILL BREAK FOR ONE AND A HALF.
