If you’ve rewatched The Office more than once, you’ve likely picked up on some Easter eggs or noticed certain filming consistencies and wondered whether or not they were intentional.

On the latest episode of the , former co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey talked about two of these instances and shed some real light on just how high the attention to detail was on set.

The episode Fischer and Kinsey discussed was Season 2, Episode 21, “Conflict Resolution.” It shows everyone getting their photo taken for an ID badge, and also follows Michael who’s made it his mission to sort through Toby’s stack of employee complaints and resolve all the issues in the office.

RR-1104: Hygrothermal Analysis of Exterior Rockwool Insulation

Introduction

Many concerns, including the rising cost of energy, climate change concerns, and demands for increased comfort, have led to the desire for increased insulation levels in many new and existing buildings. Building codes are being modified to require higher levels of thermal control during almost every revision. The manner in which additional thermal insulation is added to framed wall assemblies is critical to their durability when considered over time.

This report is an extension of a previous analysis study titled “High R Walls for the Pacific Northwest – A Hygrothermal Analysis of Various Exterior Wall Systems”, conducted by BSC for Walsh Construction, dated June 1, 2010 that examined the predicted thermal and hygrothermal performance of 17 different wall assemblies in Portland Oregon.1

As part of the initial study, four wall assemblies constructed using various thicknesses of exterior XPS insulation were analyzed. For this report, the results from the

Sheathing Exterior Walls | HomeTips

Most new walls need sheathing to strengthen them, to act as a nailing base for siding, and/or to boost insulation. Existing walls usually do not require sheathing unless you are stripping off the old siding and applying a different type that calls for sheathing. Be sure to check the siding manufacturer’s directions and local codes to determine whether sheathing is required. For help with sheathing siding, you may want to get quotes from local siding contractors.

Plywood sheathing is often the material of choice because of its strength and ease of handling.

There are two types of sheathing: structural and nonstructural.

Structural Sheathing

This type is integral to the house’s framing. It ties together wall studs, contributing shear strength and rigidity and forming a solid nailing base for siding materials. Most structural sheathings do not add much insulation value.

Common structural sheathings include plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), wafer board,

When considering natural stone for a kitchen project, Tom “TK” Kenny, partner at

Scott Simpson Design + Build, an integrated design/build firm specializing in new home construction, historic renovations, and eco-conscious green building projects in the Chicagoland area feels the most important question to ask is about the porosity of the natural stone you want to use.  “It is important to know this as it will dictate how easy the stone will be to maintain,” says Kenny.

Anna Gibson, AKBD, owner and chief designer of AKG Design Studio, a firm that provides curated kitchen and bathroom design services for the DC metro area, agrees that it’s important to know how

School Counselor Gives Life Lessons On YouTube From Her Kitchen : NPR

With schools closed, elementary school counselor Marie Weller is improvising to reach her students: She’s recording YouTube lessons about how they can handle their feelings from her kitchen.



DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Let’s visit the kitchen of an elementary school counselor in Ohio. Her name is Marie Weller, and she has turned to YouTube to help kids stranded away from school during this pandemic. NPR’s Cory Turner has been visiting with her.

CORY TURNER, BYLINE: In Delaware, Ohio, just north of Columbus, she’s known as Mrs. Weller. And if I had to describe her in a word, it would be joyful.

MARIE WELLER: (Laughter).

TURNER: Once Ohio closed its schools, Mrs. Weller started going through counseling videos she could share with her kids remotely, but she says many of them were just too…

WELLER: Boring. So I started thinking – well, I’m bored and can’t imagine that the kids aren’t.
