Host of the popular Africa on a Plate TV series, Lentswe will be introducing guests at a Brand South Africa hosted dinner in Davos to the flavours of Mzansi.Chef, former banker, MC and a man who believes in giving back, Lenstwe Bhengu believes that following your dreams is the only way to fulfilment. He left the security of his high powered career in finance to study the culinary arts. As he told BONA magazine, “The thought of walking away from a comfortable job to start something new was scary and exciting at the same time. However, I knew that I had ignored my dream for a long time. So, in 2011, I quit my job and enrolled into a culinary school.”He trained at the prestigious The Culinary Academy in the Cape Winelands before working in prominent kitchens like the Savoy Cabbage, The Roundhouse, Saucisse Deli. Despite the long hours and demanding environment Bhengu knew he had made the right choice.He has been cooking since he was eight, following his mother around the kitchen. One of his prize possesions is a blank recipe book he received from her. “My mom told me to go and fill it up with all the nice things I wanted to make for my family. I still have it. told me to go and fill it up with all the nice things I wanted to make for my family. I still have it.”“I spoke to my dad and he said to me if you can’t tick yes to all the boxes in your life, that’s what you should change and that’s when I embarked on this journey,” on making the change from finace to food.

first_imgEverything is relative — especially when it comes to thermal bridging. Thermal bridging occurs wherever assembly components with low R-values relative to surrounding materials span from the inside to the outside of a building assembly. Thermal bridging takes place in wood-framed assemblies because, although wood is a pretty good insulator at about R-1 per inch, it is at least three times more thermally conductive than any cavity insulation, which start at about R-3.5 per inch. The uninsulated roof framed with wood (R-value around 1.1 per inch) means rafter lines covered with snow.With steel framing at about R.04 per inch, it’s thermal bridging on a whole different scale. Steel framing typically reduces the in-cavity R-value by as much as 50%, while wood framing reduces in-cavity R-value by a bit less than 10%.Wrapping a building envelope with exterior rigid insulation cuts off the thermal bridging. Rigid insulation as exterior sheathing is a great idea for wood-framed assemblies, imperative for steel. But as in all things hygrothermal, you get a double benefit when you reduce or eliminate thermal bridging — you save energy and reduce the potential for condensation, mold, and rot.The main reason we put insulation in framing cavities is because there is space — it’s the easiest and least expensive place to put the stuff. But it is not the best place, in large part because of thermal bridging. In what Joe Lstiburek of Building Science Corporation calls the “perfect wall” (or roof), all of the insulation is on the exterior. This means that the building frame experiences nearly the same conditions as the occupants, a real recipe for happy, comfortable, and long-lived people and buildings.To gauge the energy implications of framing type, spacing, and thermal bridging, try the ORNL Whole Wall R-value Calculator.last_img read more

first_imgIn what is perhaps the first case of extortion involving the crypto currency bitcoin, Gujarat police CID (Crime) has booked a police Inspector and nine other policemen for allegedly forcing a Surat-based builder and real estate player to part with 200 bitcoins, worth ₹12 crore. The police booked them after a complaint was received that Inspector Anant Patel abducted the businessman Shailesh Bhatt and forced him to transfer the bitcoins from his mobile wallet. Mr. Bhatt reportedly trades in crypto currencies. His business partner Kirit Paladiya is said to have warned him that he was under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate. On February 11, Mr. Paladiya called Mr. Bhatt for a meeting in Gandhinagar. As they were talking, a couple of police vehicles arrived at the scene and they were both taken to a farm house where Mr. Bhatt was asked to transfer the bitcoins to escape the probe. The police lodged an FIR naming 11 persons, including a private individual who reportedly played a fixer between the businessman and the police.last_img read more

first_imgMembers of the Amateur Radio Society of Odisha got together at an uninhabited island within the Chilika lake to test their operational skill and technology to help the public during natural calamities such as cyclonic storms.The team had chosen this island as it is inaccessible by conventional telecommunication network. During their two-day camp at the island that ended on Sunday evening, eight licensed private HAM radio operators of Odisha experimented transmission of messages to the outside world through radio signals.‘Used solar power’ It was an attempt to simulate real-life situation during any natural calamity when all conventional modes of communication cease to exist. “To simulate such a situation, we remained cut-off from the outside world for two days and used solar power to operate our HAM radios. A bamboo pole was used as an antenna tower,” said Gurudatta Panda, one of the participants. Amateur radio operators can link up with other HAM enthusiasts through ‘short wave’ radio frequency.Contacted 130 operators During the event, these operators, despite their lack of infrastructure, managed to contact around 130 Amateur radio operators around the world. Around 90 of these were from different parts of India while others were from countries including Denmark, Russia, Indonesia, Thailand and Australia. On Sunday morning they made contacts with HAM enthusiasts of neighbouring countries except Pakistan.According to ARSO members, the importance of HAM radios during natural calamities has not diminished in this era of advanced communication. According to them, during the Titli cyclone, Gajapati district was completely cut-off from the outside world for a few hours. During that time HAM radio with the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force became the main means of communication of the district administration with the outside world.A big help ARSO members feel that an increase in the number of Amateur radio enthusiasts in the State can be a major help to society in a cyclone and flood-prone State like Odisha. On Sunday, Puri district administration representatives arrived at the island to watch the experiments being conducted by the Amateur radio activists.“There are youths with technical education in electronics and telecommunication in all parts of Odisha who can take up Amateur radio as a hobby and help society at the time of need. In future, we may have HAM radio operators in all blocks of the State,” said Priti Ranjan Mekap, another participant.Apart from Mr. Panda and Mr. Mekap, other enthusiasts who participated in this event were Samir Ranjan Panda, Umakant Swain, Chandrasekhar Patnaik, Sunil Biswal, Tusharkant Mishra and Rajesh Kumar.last_img read more
