in four colours – one of which will have a mirror-like finish Benhamin has posted an image of the iPhone in a mirror-like reflective case on Twitter It appears as if one of the options could look like the HTC U 11 which has mirror-like reflective properties That’s probably something Apple would like to offer to its iPhone users While we could not verify the validity of Benhamin’s claims there’s a possibility to see a ‘mirror-like’ option Last year Apple launched the iPhone 7 Plus in a glossy mirror-like finish which unfortunately attracts smudges Interestingly neither Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman

month on prospects for peace in the Middle East after the Canadian science minister complained that some of the participants may be biased against Israel The minister Gary Goodyear is already in hot water with academics after evoking his religious beliefs in connection with his views about evolution and yesterday the Canadian Association of University Teachers called for his resignation In January the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) gave $17815 to York University in Toronto and Queen’s University in Kingston to host a conference 22–25 June entitled "Israel/Palestine: Mapping models of statehood and prospects for peace" On 5 June Goodyear asked the council to conduct a “second peer review” of the grant on the grounds that “several individuals and organizations have expressed their grave concerns that some of the speakers have in the past made comments that have been seen to be anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic” In March the minister infamously ducked an inquiry about his belief in evolution by saying: “I am a Christian and I don’t think anybody asking a question about my religion is appropriate” Yesterday the funding council took a small step toward mollifying one of its political masters by announcing that it is “looking into the matter in the context of its policies and procedures” But SSHRC spokesperson Trevor Lynn noted that "to my knowledge” the council has never conducted a second peer review of an approved grant SSHRC program guidelines state that minor changes to a conference such as the addition of a topic or replacement of speakers do not require the agency’s approval whereas organizers are expected to tell the council of any major alterations in the use of the grant such as “changing the theme or focus of the event” James Turk executive director of the Canadian Association of University Teachers says he’s fed up with the behavior of both the council and the minister “Neither of them gets it” says Turk The association says Goodyear should resign because of his unprecedented political interference into a granting council decision Conference co-organizer Sharryn Aiken a law professor at Queen’s is disappointed that the Jewish community would accuse organizers of promoting “a one-state solution for Israel and Palestine which will result in obliteration of the Jewish homeland We’re all academics with you know recognized credentials None of us are ideologues and speaking for myself I don’t have any history of activism with the sort of anti-Zionist groups out there” Aiken who is Jewish said she was "deeply offended by these charges because they go to the core of what I care about … It’s just over the top” The conference which featured an open call for papers attracted 120 abstracts Of the 55 speakers chosen only two Toronto-based academics have opted not to participate because of the commotion None of the Israeli speakers have withdrawn York University President Mamdouh Shoukri issued a statement in support of the conference He said that upholding academic freedom like democracy “is untidy ungainly and often inconvenient But it remains our best defense against the intellectual

and said Rahul Gandhi had “reduced himself to a gimmick” with such “desperate” tactics.BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters at New Delhi that Thakore was a member of the NSUI the Congress’s student wing and had contested a panchayat poll on a party ticket earlier “A big claim is being made that a major leader has joined the party (Congress) I have often accused Rahul Gandhi of not doing his homework but it seems even his scriptwriter is not doing his homework” Prasad said He called the Congress “dramabaaz party number one” (number one party in dramatics) and said its actions reminded him of Hindi films such as ‘Coolie No 1’ or ‘Aunty No 1’ Thakore’s father was also a district president of the Congress in Gujarat he said After facing repeated defeats and being out of power in the state for over 22 years the Congress had become so desperate that Rahul Gandhi had “reduced himself to a gimmick” the Union minister said Prasad described as “baseless” and “scandalous” the Congress’s attack on the Election Commission for not announcing the Gujarat poll schedule “It is a settled position that the Model Code of Conduct is in force for 45 days” he said The polls are expected in December Taking a dig at the Congress over its campaign built around young leaders such as Thakore joining hands with Gandhi Prasad referred to the Congress vice president’s tie up with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav in the UP assembly polls and with Omar Abdullah in the Jammu and Kashmir election “He has not learnt from his experience in these polls” Prasad said referring to the Congress defeat in the elections Prasad also dismissed the claims of Narendra Patel an associate of Patidar leader Hardik Patel that the BJP had offered him Rs 1 crore to join the party “Patel claims to have been offered Rs 1 crore but has shown only Rs 10 lakh” Prasad said adding that the matter was fishy This is also part of the drama he said and accused the Congress of practising such inducements He referred to the alleged cash for vote scandal in Parliament when some BJP members had shown in the Lok Sabha wads of cash allegedly offered to them to vote in favour of the UPA government during a floor test in 2008 Then Speaker Meira Kumar had not taken the matter up with the required seriousness he alleged Asked about the display of Rs 10 lakh in cash by Patel when rules prohibit cash transactions of more than Rs 2 lakh he said the issue could be looked into “Lies corruption and negligence of development have been the history of the Congress” he said Accusing the party of obstructing Gujarat’s progress he said it did not provide environmental clearance for a ferry service which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday when it was in power at the Centre Rejecting Gandhi’s criticism of the government over its economic and development policies he said the Congress vice president did not understand the dynamics of either of them “These are issues alien to him” he said He also dismissed charges against BJP president Amit Shah’s son over his business transactions “All allegations against him are false and part of a motivated campaign” he said For all

Goenka, Chairman of Punj Lloyd,New certification requirements for Passive House buildings not only set limits on how much energy they can use but they also make renewable energy production mandatory in two new building categories Sign up for eletters today and get the latest how-to from Fine Homebuilding plus special offers Germany’s Passivhaus Institut has created two new levels of compliance for certification that for the first time set minimums for renewable-energy production as well as limits on how much energy a building can consume The changes are rolled into a new version of thePassive HousePlanning Package (PHPP) the modeling software that designers use in designing Passive House structures and will go into effect with the software’s release later in April While parts of the existing standard are unchanged there are two new classes of Passive House buildings “Plus” buildings must be able to produce at least 60kwh of electricity per sq meter per year (kwh/m2/year) and consume no more than 45 “Premium” buildings will be required to produce at least 120 kwh/m2/year while using no more than 30 A “Classic” Passive House designation will mean that the building consumes no more than 60 kwh/m2/year No on-site energy production is required Energy-production requirements are based on the footprint of the building Energy-consumption limits are based on the total floor area of the building For all classes of buildings (Classic Plus and Premium) the Passivhaus Institut defines both energy consumption and production as “renewable primary energy demand” (PER) which is electricity produced from a wind turbine orphotovoltaic(PV) panels for example and not energy produced from nonrenewable sources such as coal The changes are an attempt to quantify the type and amount of energy buildings use as renewables become a more important part of the global energy mix and as Europe heads toward a near-net-zerostandard for new construction by the start of 2021 A new way of accounting for energy use Several of the familiar requirements of the Passive House standard apply to all three building categories For example certified buildings may not use any more than 15 kwh/m2 of energy per year for heat Nor has there been a change to the airtightness requirement which is 06 air changes per hour at a pressure difference of 50 pascals Requirements for energy production and the accounting method for the amount of power that’s consumed however are brand new “The energy supply structure worldwide is transitioning from fossil energies to renewable sources at an encouragingly rapid pace” Jessica Grove-Smith of the Passivhaus Institut wrote in an email “Currently existing assessment methods for the energy impact of buildings are however all based on the old supply system only taking into account non-renewable primary energy as [an] efficiency indicator” “Energy supplied from renewable sources is effectively treated as free energy that can be used without constraint” she continued “In practice however renewable primary energy sources are not infinitely available due to space and cost restraints” PER takes into account storage losses as well as losses in generation and transmission for renewable-energy sources Fossil fuels are no longer part of the picture Built into the new planning software “They are using a world of 100% renewables essentially” Ken Levenson co-president of the North American Passive House Network said in a telephone interview “What they see which I think is correct is a future of renewable energy The grid is going to be renewable It has to be and our buildings have to be optimized for that future And they need to be measured according to that future” To make an accurate accounting of energy use Levenson said the Passivhaus Institut has broken consumption down into five categories or “baskets”: plug loads (appliances and lighting) hot water heating cooling and dehumidification “Each of those baskets of energy use has a different relationship with renewable energy production” he said “For air-conditioning where you have hot summer days and are producing the maximum PV electricity you have relatively small losses In winter when you have heating demand peaking you don’t have renewables available so you’re relying on storage capacity and the losses associated with that” “So they assign multipliers based on the total mix of renewables being produced and your mix of using the energy” he continued “You get these numbers built into the PHPP This is your heating multiplier this is your cooling multiplier” These different multipliers he added are the PER factors Any given locale–Boston Chicago Los Angeles–will not only have a climate “data set” but also a mix of renewable energy sources “Renewables may make up only 10% of a region’s power generationtoday” he said “but the calculation for the sake of ‘future proofing’ makes it 100%–the fossil fuels are gone from the equation” At the same time the new PHPP will include a value for nonrenewable energy consumption “In order to be able to assess the building’s environmental impacts in today’s energy supply context” Grove-Smith wrote “the PHPP will continue to include the non-renewable primary energy evaluation based on the national/regional energy supply structure” “What they are doing” said Levenson “is providing a PER source energy based on an optimized 100% renewable future AND providing the traditional source energy based on national averages of energy fuel mix today So you get the traditional number as well as the future-proof sustainability assessment number” Not necessarily net-zero buildings Judging by the requirements for production and consumption of energy for the Plus and Premium categories it looks as though both would benet-zero-energybuildings But Levenson said the demand numbers are actually for the total floor area of a building and the production is for the footprint of the building A single-story Plus building might well be net-zero but a two-story design might not be nor would a four-story Premium building “With a single-story building it would be very easy for a Passive House building to be an energy-positive building” he said “When you add stories to the building on a per-square-foot basis it would be harder and harder to net out the usage of the building But it’s less important than knowing that we’ve optimized the square footage of the earth that the building is occupying” Confusing Yes “I’m just learning it too” Levenson said “Everybody’s just dipping their feet into it” The upcoming Passivhaus Institut conference in Leipzig Germany April 17 and 18 will offer more details and case studies showing how the system is used In addition the principles behind PER are described
