It was reported that the 28-year-old playmaker was also ready to sacrifice a commercial deal with Qatar National Bank, which was worth as much as $53m annually. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Neymar may not move to FC Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer, the Brazilian’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro, has said. He went on to say that the coronavirus crisis has had major financial impacts on soccer and that is the reason why Neymar won’t be rejoining Lionel Messi at Nou Camp at the end of this season. Neymar, who joined PSG for a world-record fee of $241 million ahead of the 2017-18 season, has netted 69 goals in 80 appearances for the French side across all competitions and has won three consecutive Ligue 1 titles. While he was still in his first season in Paris, reports had emerged that Neymar found the standard of the league poor and wanted to return to La Liga’s Barcelona. Moreover, on every given opportunity, Barca captain Messi has talked about wanting Neymar back at Nou Camp. The Argentinean has said that Barcelona cannot win the Champions League with the current side and that is one of the primary reasons why Messi has been desperate to have Neymar back to the Catalan side. While it has been understood that despite suffering from the financial crisis, Barcelona have been trying to clear funds for Neymar’s transfer, the forward’s agent has claimed that his client may not leave PSG this summer.

Exceeding the Energy Code

first_imgSTEP 8: EXCEEDING THE ENERGY CODE (IECC)Code: N1101.8 A code official or local jurisdiction is permitted to allow a national, state, orlocal green-building or energy-efficiency program to exceed the energy efficiency required by the IRC or IECC. A building approved in writing by such a program will be considered compliant.What it means to you: This update ensures that builders who use LEED, Energy Star, or a local green-building program may be able to comply with all energy-code provisions of the IRC and IECC. The above code provision allows a building official to deem the energy-efficient program as exceeding the energy efficiency required by the code. The value of this provision is that while the energy requirements of both the IRC and the IECC change, other programs initiated by cities, counties, and states sometimes do not—at least not at the same pace. Builders can disregard the energy requirements of the code only if the locality has approved the alternative program.The 2009 building codes reflect practices that not only increase energy efficiency, like air sealing measures and increased insulation, but also address sustainable building practices, like moisture control.Other segments of this series:Part 1: Air SealingPart 2: InsulationPart 3: LightingPart 4: Programmable ThermostatsPart 5: Insulating Mass WallsPart 6: Efficient WindowsPart 7: Insulating Mechanical PipesPart 8: Exceeding the Energy CodePart 9: Vapor Retarders 9 Steps to A Greener CodeNew homes built using the 2009 International Residential Code (IRC) or International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) will be more energy efficient than ever. As a consequence, a builder’s world may become a bit more complex and, in some cases, a bit more expensive. last_img read more
