Those take his tally so far to 17 goals, though his opener was his first from outside the box this season.Now the Foxes have 50 points, only five short of their all-time top-flight record total (55 in 1999-2000).Manchester City owed their 1-0 win at Sunderland to another Sergio Aguero goal, his 17th of the season and 12th in his last 10 Premier League appearances.They return to the Etihad Stadium where they have won nine out of 12, more home victories than any other team in the top division.They entertain a Leicester side who have won seven away games, three more than they won on the road over the whole of last season; one more will be their most away wins in the Premier League, overtaking the seven they won in the 1997-98 campaign.And Leicester have a good record at Manchester City in the Premier League, winning three of their last four. Last season, however, they lost 2-0 when goals from David Silva and James Milner earned the home side the points.Manchester City miss Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany and test Wilfried Bony, Fabian Delph, Eliaquim Mangala and Jesus Navas.Leicester, meanwhile, could have new signing Daniel Amartey, a Ghana international, available, but Jeffrey Schlupp is out.last_img read more

Fulham look to be on a hiding to nothing at Anfield, while Chelsea should see off WBA

first_imgFulham travel to Anfield at the weekend with both sides going into the game on the back of a loss.Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool were well beaten at the Emirates and the Whites folded tamely in the first 45 minutes against the champions Manchester United last time out.Fulham have kept three clean sheets in their last five league games at Anfield but go into this game as 14/1 outsiders, with Liverpool looking to maintain a challenge for a Champions League spot.The Reds are 1/4 to win with the draw at 11/2.Luis Suarez is 27/10 and Daniel Sturridge 3/1 to score the opening goal at BetVictor and the home side are 8/11 to lead at both half-time and full-time.With the international break on the horizon, manager Martin Jol and all Whites fans would love a point, but it seems unlikely that Liverpool’s strikeforce will fire blanks again.Fulham are out to 11/2 for a top-half finish and into 5/2 to be relegated after Cardiff’s win against arch-rivals Swansea.Palace (1/20) and Sunderland (3/5) look doomed but the final spot might go down to the wire.Chelsea entertain West Brom and are a very short price at 3/10 to maintain their excellent home record.The Baggies are 10/1 for a shock win and when you consider they have lost all seven games played in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge it would, indeed, be a shock if they got anything.The Blues are back out to 5/2 for the title behind Manchester City (2/1), whose 7-0 success over Norwich was enough to see them go back to the head of the market.With Fernando Torres out, Samuel Eto’o is 22/5 to score the opening goal and I expect to see a comprehensive success against a side who were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool at Anfield in their last away game.Chelsea are 14s for the Champions League (7/2 any English side) after another professional performance in midweek and that initial Basel scare seems a long time ago.Incidentally, Bayern Munich remain 5/2 favourites with Barcelona 4s and Real Madrid 5/1.Rangers got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory against Steve McClaren’s Derby County last weekend.The R’s travel to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday and are 13/8 to beat Reading, who are 9/5 with the draw at 12/5.There have been a number of red cards in the games between these clubs (five in the last six) in recent times and the 9/2 at BetVictor makes plenty of appeal.Harry Redknapp’s side are back to even-money favourites for the title, with Leicester 7/2 and leaders Burnley 8/1.I fancy Rangers to get all three points against Nigel Adkins’ men and they will go back to the top of the Championship table if they win – even if it is only for a couple of hours.For all your sporting odds check out Betvictor.comBe luckyCharlielast_img read more

Preventing Frost Buildup in HRVs and ERVs

Log in Manufacturers of heat-recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy-recovery ventilators (ERVs) know that HRV or ERV cores can get clogged with ice in cold temperatures. During the winter, this type of appliance brings cold outdoor air in close proximity to a stream of humid indoor air. If the outgoing air is humid enough, and the incoming air is cold enough, the moisture in the exhaust air stream can turn to ice.How cold does it have to be for these problems to occur? The answer depends on indoor moisture levels and the design of the HRV or ERV core. In general, HRV cores can ice up when outdoor temperatures drop to the low 20s, while ERV cores may not develop icing problems until outdoor temperatures drop to the low teens. That means that people who live in the warmer parts of Texas, Georgia, and Florida probably don’t have to worry about HRV defrost strategies.Fortunately, the ice-up problem is easy to solve, and almost all HRV and ERV manufacturers offer solutions to this problem. There are five basic strategies:Some HRV manufacturers bristle as the term “defrost.” Instead, they talk about “frost prevention” strategies.Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter whether a few ice crystals have begun to form, or whether the first ice crystal has yet to form, when the frost-prevention cycle is initiated. All the owner cares about is that the warming cycle prevents damage to the core. For the purposes of this article, I’m going to talk about defrost cycles. You can mentally substitute the words “frost prevention cycles” if you prefer.Your car has an automatic choke. Why? To make it easier to start the engine when it’s cold outside.Engineers invented the choke to solve a problem.

Their most recent release, the V.Lav, was an impressive addition to their lavalier lineup — and a welcome product for many filmmakers. So, with NAB in full swing, Deity has finally released their staggering 2.4Ghz wireless system. Connect was first announced back in September, 2018, but the system is now on display and ready to rock at NAB with an actual release date of April 16th.In case you want a refresher, here’s what Deity has said about the new product:We wanted to create a transmitter that would be truly unique and different. Its compact form factor makes it perfect for hiding under outfits. With a run time of 10hrs @ 100mw and a recharge time of less than an hour, the BP-TX is ready for a full workday.Image via Deity.Deity has also pitched us the idea of their “Adaptive Frequency Hopping” and by that they mean the following:Deity Connect divides time into so-called time-slots, during which the transmitter and receiver operate on the same RF channel and the Transmitter emits one packet. The duration of a time-slot is 1.5 msec. Deity Connect uses an advanced Adaptive Frequency Hopping protocol that actually uses 4 core channels and 5 trail channels that it will test out and look for better channels than its 4 core channels. During each hop into a time-slot, the system sends 1 or 2 packets of data. At any given time, the BP-TX is hopping between the 9 different frequencies in a pattern. And because Deity Connect is a bi-directional transceiver system that is always scanning, mapping out the whole 2.4Ghz frequency band and coordinating its signal, it can plan ahead the 70 frequency hops.So if you’re like me, who does not know a whole lot about audio (I’m like, “What does this mean?”), Deity goes on to explain:WiFi and Deity’s Protocol are opposites. WiFi operates much like a rolling shutter in pulses and slows down the pulses to accommodate other signals and other devices on the 2.4Ghz band. Deity’s Protocol takes advantage of the passive nature of WiFi protocol and bosses it around by injecting itself between these pulses. And while it doesn’t just outright blast WiFi and stop it from working, it coordinates its time-slot hops with the pulses of all the WiFi devices around it. This allows for our signal to not get stepped-on nor stopped for other traffic. In layman’s terms, WiFi can be thought of as a beta signal and Deity’s Protocol can be thought of as an Alpha signal setting the pulse rhythm for all the 2.4Ghz traffic in the area.In even simpler terms, Adaptive Frequency Hopping is like a motorcyclist who is lane splitting during heavy traffic on a highway. Sliding in and out of lanes causing the cars to slide aside to make room when the motorcyclist buzzes by them. We are lane splitting using up to 9 lanes on an 18 lane highway.last_img read more
