Power has beaten up on Rhino, Ndejje, JKL and UPDF Tomahawks.Warriors will look to avoid a second loss against Power this season. Warriors lost 78-82 when these teams met in the first round on May 25th.“The game plan is simple; stop Power’s transition game, said Warriors coach Ronnie Mutebi ahead of the game.“We have to beat the full court press or pressure defenseman and then keep power big men off the rebounds.”“We plan to box out and also get them into early foul trouble.”The Kyambogo side is on a three game winless streak with recent losses against KCCA, City Oilers and KIU Titans.The side is set to miss out on Deng Maker who is in the East Africa games, and Mike Otienno.Warriors, who have 9 wins from 16 games, will look to the armory of Amisi Saidi, Stanley Mugerwa, Syrus Kiviiri, and Mark Opiyo among others.Power may continue to miss Stephen Wundi, but Joseph Ikong Fahmy Ssebatindira, Geoffrey Soro, Paul Odong, Athiu Madol among others look a better roster, than Warriors’.In the first game of the day, defending champions in the ladies’ category UCU Lady Canons will take on Nkumba Lady Marines.Comments Tags: Betway PowerFUBA NBL 2018Pemba Warriorslast_img read more


Looking Back at Insulating Advice from 1951

It instructed beginners in the right way to do things; it upheld standards; and it promoted quality work.First published in 1923, the guide was updated in 1939, 1945, and 1951. As U.S. builders made the transition away from post-and-beam framing to stick framing, Audels dragged its heels, entering the new era with great reluctance. Even in its 1951 edition, the series insisted that a quality building needed a post-and-beam frame with mortise-and-tenon joints.In an online essay, Tedd Benson credited the Audels books for inspiring his love for the construction method that became Benson’s focus for decades: “Reading the old Audels was, in fact, the first time I became enamored of timberframing. That edition had good illustrations and reasonably good instructions about joinery and particular framing techniques.”The 1951 edition of Audels, which I own, advised readers that stick framing was inferior to post-and-beam construction. The books refer to stick framing as “balloon framing,” whereas post-and-beam construction (timber framing) is called “full framing.”According to Audels, a “full frame” consists of “heavy and solid timbers fastened together with mortise and tenon joints secured by pins,” while a balloon frame “is a cheap and as usually put together a more or less objectionable construction. … Since the balloon frame is a type which invites poor work and a certain class of builders cannot resist such a… This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img Start Free Trial Already a member?
