Alesana Tuilagi runs over Shane Horgan

first_imgWednesday May 27, 2009 Alesana Tuilagi runs over Shane Horgan As Leinster continue to paint Ireland a shade of blue following their Heineken Cup victory over Leicester on Saturday, we look back at one of the moments of the match as two big wingers went up against each other in a heavyweight contest that was emphatically one sided. ADVERTISEMENTShane Horgan was picked to start for Leinster with coach Michael Cheika knowing all too well that he’d be up against the power of the Samoan bulldozer Alesana Tuilagi.Early in the match we saw Rocky Elsom storm over the top of Tuilagi, and not too long afterwards Horgan gave him a little shove over the touchline, which the powerhouse Tiger winger clearly didn’t take too kindly to.Horgan is a big unit himself, standing at 6ft4, he’s one of the biggest international wings around. That didn’t faze Tuilagi though, as later in the game he zeroed in on the Irishman, leaving him on his backside, wondering what day it was after this rampaging run.Tuilagi is famous for those type of charges, but was also recently suspended for a bit of dirty play, returning for the final. He showed great sportsmanship and humility after this devastating run though, as he went to check if Horgan was okay. Or, did he..?Great rugby all round, and just another high point in a fantastic final for the neutral.ADVERTISEMENTTime: 01:59 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 19 WEEKS AGO WATCH: New George Pisi compilation shows… 19 WEEKS AGO Suspension for Jean Kleyn after dangerous… 19 WEEKS AGO Nicolas Sanchez ends up in tears after Red… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Salt House is located on the edge of the Pavilosta historical center where all the streets cross at perpendicular angles on a grid that abuts the sea. Pāvilosta has a temperate climate and strong wind, so the building was constructed with thick, monolithic, lime-plastered blocks, with no additional insulation necessary. The cross-section of the one-story building was inspired by traditional fishermen’s houses prevalent in the area, with an interior that opens to the building’s full height and width.Save this picture!© Valters VidenieksSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Valters VidenieksWithin, open and closed spaces overlap, providing a semi-transparent space of both openness and intimacy. The architect’s vision of how the architectural concept should be made is to consider tradition, climate, landscape, ecology both of materials and processes, abilities of local craftsmen and builders, contemporary technological requirements, needs and budget of the client, and many more.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisTo create her subtle architectural language, architect Brigita Bula takes into account all these aspects, and only then architecture that fits into the place and minds of the people is born. Salt House is the answer to all the questions and considerations above, in the exact place and time – Pavilosta, Latvia, now. The house is located 50 kilometres from Liepaja and 250km from the capital city Riga, right on the seashore of Pavilosta – a small seaside town of fishermen, water sports fans, nature lovers, and a tranquil atmosphere. Town’s historical centre is filled with low gable-roof houses and has a historically unique orthogonal street plan.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisEach of the perpendicularly intersecting streets eventually leads to the beach, and the sea can be seen from afar, creating a special atmosphere. 240-square-metre, one-storey house is set in a seaside meadow as a simple, narrow, elongated horizontal volume that draws a thin sea wave-like line in the surrounding undulating landscape, leaving as small an imprint in the existing biotope as possible. The colourful and lively flowerbed in the front of the house is made by selecting and cultivating local plants, herbs, and flowers from the surrounding meadows. The house reminisces a sand dune that catches all the salt carried by the sea breeze.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisTherefore the name – Salt house. This idea is reflected in the natural material of the facade – natural lime plaster, which is similar in its structure and colour to the coarse salt. There are certain reasons why seaside houses in Pavilosta look different from everywhere else in Latvia. For instance, the wind in Pāvilosta blows the rain almost horizontally, and this is why local houses never had overhanging eaves. The climate at the sea there is mild, so no need for extra heat insulation. The real challenge is to windproof the house.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisNowadays it is difficult to find local craftsmen who can execute high-quality windproof wooden joints. So 500mm thick aerated concrete blocks were chosen for the main construction – in this particular situation they don’t need to be additionally insulated, the construction technology is easy for local builders to follow and it gives the windproofing needed. The cross-section of the building’s volume was copied from original fishermen’s houses typical around the area. There is a dynamic overlap between open space that runs the full height and entire length of the house and enclosed rooms in the interior of Salt House. This layout creates an alternating feeling of spaciousness and intimacy, thus resembling the ever-changing view of the sea that the owners can enjoy every time they walk through the house.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisThere is a ventilation system in the house, providing a comfortable climate, though natural ventilation is provided through the reclining doors from each room of the house. Doors are plastered with the same facade material. That way windows are not openable and without any division, connecting the inside and outside spaces and providing an uninterrupted view. The heating system is integrated into the floors, which are made of cast concrete. The house is a simple envelope that delimits a piece of the surrounding world.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisSave this picture!© Reinis HofmanisBy using authentic, natural materials, it maintains a tranquil feeling both inside and outside, without visible limits. Interior surfaces are left without any decorative finishing to expose the essence and natural beauty of the construction materials and technologies. Almost all the furniture and fixtures are made locally, e.g. cast concrete furniture, log tables, etc., to provide the same effect. The building will retain its elegance and beauty as it ages – cracks or leaks of rust will fit its image because this is simply the natural order of things.Save this picture!© Reinis HofmanisProject gallerySee allShow lessRei 164 House / DG EstudioSelected ProjectsHoldergasse House / Baumschlager Eberle ArchitektenSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/958846/salt-house-brigita-bula-architects Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY”last_img read more

Dad allegedly staged his baby boy’s kidnapping to cover up foul play: Police

first_imgChalabala/iStock(SAN ANTONIO) — A father allegedly staged his baby boy’s kidnapping to cover up foul play involving the child, San Antonio police said, as the search for the baby intensifies.“Without a doubt … this was a staged event,” San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told reporters Monday.Authorities initially said on Friday that 8-month-old King Jay Davila was reported to be kidnapped while inside his father’s car.Police then shared surveillance video of the woman they believed stole the car.McManus said Monday that the woman in surveillance video was identified as a cousin of the baby’s father, Christopher Davila.The child was not in the car, which was recovered later on Friday at a park.Police believe the alleged staged kidnapping was “to cover up foul play involving King Jay Davila,” McManus said, though he declined to elaborate.Davila was arrested on Friday and charged with endangering a child, police said.His cousin was arrested and charged with an unrelated offense, McManus said.“The father spoke with the media from jail and he spent more time speaking with the media, answering media questions, than he spent with us, answering our questions,” the chief said.Davila spoke to ABC San Antonio affiliate KSAT from jail on Saturday, saying the police investigation wasn’t looking in the right direction.“They just need to focus on where the car was located,” he said.Investigators are focused on finding King Jay, McManus said. Asked if police believe the baby is alive, McManus would only say authorities believe this was foul play.“We know that there’s more people out there that have more information on this case,” he said, warning, “Even if you are not directly involved in this, if you are withholding information, if you have lied to police, we will charge you.”Davila remains in jail and is due to appear in court on Feb. 27. His attorneys did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Interhemispheric coupling, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and warm Antarctic interglacials

first_imgIce core evidence indicates that even though atmosphericCO2 concentrations did not exceed 300 ppm atany point during the last 800 000 years, East Antarctica wasat least 3–4 C warmer than preindustrial (CO2 280 ppm) in each of the last four interglacials. During the previous three interglacials, this anomalous warming was short lived (3000 years) and apparently occurred before the completion of Northern Hemisphere deglaciation. Hereafter, we refer to these periods as “Warmer than Present Transients” (WPTs). We present a series of experiments to investigate the impact of deglacial meltwater on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and Antarctic temperature.It is well known that a slowed AMOC would increase southernsea surface temperature (SST) through the bipolar seesawand observational data suggests that the AMOC remainedweak throughout the terminations precedingWPTs, strengthening rapidly at a time which coincides closely with peak Antarctic temperature. We present two 800 kyr transient simulations using the Intermediate Complexity model GENIE-1 which demonstrate that meltwater forcing generates transient southern warming that is consistent with the timing of WPTs, but is not sufficient (in this single parameterisation) to reproduce the magnitude of observed warmth. In order to investigate model and boundary condition uncertainty, we present three ensembles of transient GENIE-1 simulations across Termination II (135 000 to 124 000 BP) and three snapshot HadCM3 simulations at 130 000 BP. Only with consideration of the possible feedback of West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS)retreat does it become possible to simulate the magnitude ofobserved warming.last_img read more

Mast we deface the High Street?

first_imgRecent plans for the construction of a 15 metre high telephone mast on Oxford High Street have been met with outrage from local businesses and colleges.A commissioned workforce began excavations at the traffic island outside All Souls college, in a preliminary investigation as to whether or not the underground services would be suitable for a radio base station.Elizabeth Crawford, domestic bursar at University College, said, “None of the neighbouring Colleges on the High Street were informed of the trial hole that was excavated last week on behalf of a mobile telephone company.”  She added, “The planning regulations do not require that local people are notified for such exploratory work.”There has been a joint effort of late between traders and colleges to clean up and restore the High Street, and many believe that the mast, which will improve 3G coverage for Vodafone and O2 customers, is in direct opposition to such renovations.Jeremy Mogford, owner of the Old Bank Hotel and Quod restaurant, said, “The idea of a mast there is simply appalling.”Crawford echoed this, stating, “I cannot imagine that any business or College in the High Street would regard such an installation with anything other than astonished horror.”As yet, the plans are still in the pipeline for the mast and an official application has not yet been made to the council.Ilana Clark, a spokesperson for Vodafone UK Ltd., said, “This site is still in the early stages and a proposed design has not yet been finalised. We have identified that we need to improve the 3G coverage to our customers in central Oxford.”After being notified of the project by Univ’s domestic bursar, Keith Mitchell, leader of Oxfordshire County Council, said, “My personal view is that sounds like a monstrous carbuncle on the High.”Crawford told Cherwell, “Were a  planning application to be submitted, Univ College would certainly exercise its rights to comment on it… I hope that the students who live in Univ, many of whom look over the High Street would also exercise their right to comment on any such application.”She added, “Were permission to be granted, I think it highly likely that the College would appeal against such a decision.”Vodafone have also had two applications rejected for similar stations in Bath, as well as withdrawing a January application for a mast in front of the War Memorial in St. Giles, which was branded as “sacrilege”.last_img read more

County Warns Against “COVID Fatigue”

first_imgCape May County officials are warning residents against “COVID Fatigue” and remind people of the necessary precautions in the colder winter months.There has been a rise in cases both nationally and in New Jersey over the past month. Slowing the spread will keep fellow county residents and the economy healthy, the county said in a news release Tuesday.Key steps for people to take include wearing a face covering, keeping six feet of social distance, being outdoors for group settings as much as possible, proper sanitation of high touch surfaces, and frequent hand washing.People typically move indoors in the coming months with colder weather. The spread of the virus, however, is significantly worse indoors versus outdoors.“We are asking people to stay vigilant and follow the necessary steps to slow the spread,” Freeholder Jeff Pierson, liaison to the Cape May County Health Department, said in the release. “We have come a long way from earlier this year, and we want to people to stay as safe as possible.”The Cape May County Health Department has been heavily engaged with the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The next step to be rolled out soon includes the previously announced Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity (ELC)-Enhancing Detection Grant, which will enhance testing capacity in the county over the next 26 weeks, including a focus for first responders, symptomatic individuals, close contacts of positive cases, health care workers, and asymptomatic referrals.“We appreciate the hard work that has been done by Cape May County residents this year,” Freeholder Director Gerald M. Thornton said. “We understand COVID fatigue is a real thing, but the only way to keep our families safe and our businesses is open is to follow the safety protocols until we can get a vaccine.”last_img read more
