Does faced insulation need to be covered

Answered By: Diego Wood Date: created: Oct 09 2021

The facing acts as a barrier to moisture passing through the building, which is a potential source of condensation problems. … To satisfy building codes, most faced insulation must be covered with half-inch-thick wallboard or other code-approved material to reduce the chances of its igniting during a fire.

Can you put R19 insulation in a 2×4 wall

Answered By: Stanley Simmons Date: created: Apr 27 2021

Thanks! R19 compressed into a 2×4 stud wall should give you about R14 I believe, so if you can’t return the R19 you already have to the store to buy cheaper R13 batts, you might as well use it up.

Select responses from people who said “Front to the water”:

  • “Too afraid the shower scene from Psycho will happen. But if it’s gonna happen, then I don’t wanna see it coming.” How do you know which way they’ll attack from?
  • “(unless there’s another person in there too)” Hahahahah no idea why this changes your preference but love the self-consciousness.
  • “too stay warm.”
  • “water is my audience.” Counterpoint.
  • “My boobs deserve better than back to the water.” Treat yourself.
  • “Water on my face = life.” We want you to live.
  • “Most showers are not tall enough for me. Much easier to duck forward than bend over backward.” Again, the height thing.
  • “I usually tuck my forearms into my chest and hold my hands in a sort of cupped-clawed formation with my fingers curled but splayed, to catch the most warm water possible, kind of like a Hunger Games tribute saved from near death and given her first warm shower after weeks in the woods.” Wow.
  • “I’m gargling like a motha!” Uhhhhhh.

How we Facebook often shows who we face

We may click a “like” button on a post or image because it presents a fairly low-risk way to show support for something without fully engaging on an issue. We may make other supportive gestures such as changing our profile picture to show our allegiance to an activist cause. While some may say their actions are harmless and meaningless, most would conclude that if a person “likes” a pro-abortion photo, they are in support of abortion. It is not unreasonable to suggest that our actions provide a window into our belief system.

Unfortunately, this can be especially troubling and spiritually damaging when others (including those with whom we have sacred stewardship over) observe us showing support for things contrary to the commandments and teachings of prophets and apostles. Why? As Alma explained to his wayward son, “… when they saw your conduct they would not believe in my words” (Alma 39:11).

But do we?We know the Savior does not condone, encourage or congratulate things that are in opposition to the standards, commandments and doctrines of the gospel. But do we? Perhaps we can unwittingly do so on Facebook, Instagram, blogs or on dozens of other social media platforms. We want to be kind to our friends and family and not rock the boat. Perhaps we might even change our profile pictures and engage in “virtue signaling” as a way to show how compassionate, open-minded and enlightened we are compared to others on social issues. (Smug self-righteousness goes both ways, and we all should avoid it—whatever side of an issue we’re on.)

The point is this: As members of the Church, we cannot stand for righteousness while sitting down online and showing advocacy and support for that which is contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We simply would do well to consider what we show approval of on social media.

The Savior never forgot which way He faced

Elder Robbins teaches us that the Savior, our great Exemplar, always faced His Father. “He loved and served His fellowmen but said, “I receive not honour from men” (John 5:41). He wanted those He taught to follow Him, but He did not court their favor. … In His life, He was confronted by scores of accusers but never yielded to their finger of scorn. He is the only person who never once forgot which way He faced.”

“May His inspiring example strengthen us agaHe continues,

“May His inspiring example strengthen us against the pitfalls of flattery from without or of conceit from within. May it give us courage to never cower or fawn at the feet of intimidation. … When others demand approval in defiance of God’s commandments, may we always remember whose disciples we are, and which way we face.” (Link)

As we navigate social media and have conversations with friends and family, we need to always remember to who we face. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we face Him and not the world. At all times, and in all things, and in all places. These days, this is one of the best ways we can show where our latter-day discipleship lies. Whether it be the comments, photos or articles we “like” or share, we can show the Savior and others who we face—and which way we “Facebook”.
