first_imgThursday Jul 24, 2014 Great tries from the Sharks vs Highlanders Super Rugby Qualifier The Sharks will face the Crusaders in Christchurch this coming weekend in the Super Rugby semi finals after a pulsating 31-27 victory over the Highlanders in the qualifier. Both sides scored great tries, so here is a look at the best of them ahead of the semis.The Sharks came from behind twice, as the Highlanders scored some excellent tries, most notably on the stroke of halftime from prop forward Kane Hames.“I’m very proud of the way they came back,” said coach Jake White said afterwards. “I thought the last 20 minutes we played really well. It was some of our best rugby in terms of linking our forwards and backs. I think when you get a win like you did last week with 34 points and then 31 against the Highlanders, it’s a great way to take momentum into the last couple of rounds.“It’s a great lesson for all the boys here to understand just how tough this knockout stage is. The Highlanders are a quality team, probably the best team in the competition to counterattack from broken play,” White said ahead of the semi final.South African teams heading overseas for playoffs have struggled in the past, with teams from the Republic playing nine knock-out matches in New Zealand and losing all of them.The Sharks however have already beaten the Crusaders away this season, with 14 men, so White feels that if they play well enough, they can do it again.“I’m a big believer that this group of players can beat anybody, and we’ve beaten both the Crusaders and Waratahs already this season.”Kickoff in the Crusaders vs Sharks Semi Final is at 19:35 local, 07:35 GMT, 09:35 CEST If you’re good at predicting match results, visit our friends to make a bet at TitanbetADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Our inspiration for this project came from the unique nature of the site, a gently slopping landscape right at the edge of the waterfront of Rose Bay. The natural sandstone walls of the bay, the grey Ironbark of the boardwalks and wharfs, the great figs and richness of the landscape and foliage as it meets the bay have been the elements we have looked to for inspiration in the design of these apartments.Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuThe project has been conceived as two separate but related residential accommodation types: a series of individual garden apartments merging with the topography and landscape; and a series of generous single level apartments in a cubic pavilion structure. Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuThe garden apartments are nestled into the gently sloping landscape of the site. Each level of these apartments opens onto terraces, courtyards and gardens. They are entered through a gazebo-like entrance conservatory that gives views over the garden to the bay. The apartments are deeply nestled into the landscape for insulation and thermal comfort to the interiors, and are characterised through their garden setting. The materials of these apartments, stone, timber and masonry emphases the relationship to the landscape while the large glazed doors and windows open to the view and fresh air. Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuThe pavilion apartments are created within a timber cubic structure with an expressed timber frame and louvre screens. This carefully proportioned pavilion is inspired by the nearly waterfront structures and wharfs made from ironbark and weatherboards. Automated louvres, sunscreens and large operable glazing shield the interiors from the sun, filter daylight and modulate vistas towards the Bay in response to the varying climate conditions and preferences of the occupants. Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuNumerous courtyard, terrace and landscape spaces are easily accessible for residents from which to enjoy the immediate and surrounding landscape. Furthermore, the design and layout of the residences enables generous garden areas, which in turn, create the sense space and the feeling that the landscape surrounds and is accessible from every part of the dwelling. Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuThe visual amenity and sense of space is further enhanced by the adjoining heritage listed Rose Bay house, adjoining public reserve and pedestrian access way, close proximity to Cranbrook Oval and filtered views north to Rose Bay and across the harbour.Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuA ramp from Rose Bay Avenue to the front doors not only enable easy access, but also allow residents and visitors to stroll leisurely through the landscape on the approach to each dwelling. Similarly, an appropriate area is provided for a ‘front door’ approach, giving each building its own entry lobby adjoining lush garden. This is achieved by two free standing entry pavilions that signify the entries and contribute to the amenity and landscape approach.Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuLight court spaces have been integrated into the landscape. These provide access to natural light and ventilation for adjoining interior spaces, as well as providing another outdoor living space. These ‘outdoor rooms’ provide a link between indoor and outdoor areas. The courts have been designed as a series of cascading green terraces, planted with a variety of native ferns, shrubs, ground covers and climbers. Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuA substantial portion of the landscape is ‘on-structure’, consisting of integrated planters on rooftop and balcony spaces. The on-structure planting allows a greater degree of vegetative cover for the site and is responsible for the ‘green roof’ character of the development. The benefits of this are that the site appears to be covered with extensive lush plantings when viewed from adjoining areas and from within the development the planting provides amenity and privacy. Save this picture!© Mathieu FaliuA major focus of the landscape has been to improve the future character and maximise the use of indigenous plant species. New Angophora costata (Smooth-barked Apple) trees have been planted to enhance the western boundary as well as integrate with the adjacent triangular public park. A row of deciduous trees between the apartments and terraces provide amenity and scale to the development. While the avenue of Lophostemon confertus (Brush Box) trees along New South Head Road have been reinstated to provide a bold landscape statement at the on the ‘front face’ of the development. Plant selection has focused on native species since they are well adapted to the Save this picture!© Mathieu Faliulocal climate, will result in much hardier planting than many other species due to their resilience to local climate extremes, can aid in greatly reduced maintenance costs and reduced irrigation and nutrient requirements, for their contribution as a resource for urban wildlife and to make reference to the natural environment of Rose Bay. Other factors considered in the plant selection included hardy plants that are suitable to a coastal environment, plants that are suited to a variety of light conditions and species that have varied foliage colour, texture and scent.Save this picture!PlanThe planting design has also focused on providing a ‘layered’ planting selection, equal consideration has been given to canopy cover, under storey and groundcover planting to ensure a landscape with visual interest at all levels.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessGoogle Earth Pro 5.2ArticlesAPAP Open School / LOT-EKArticlesProject locationAddress:577 New South Head Road, Rose Bay NSW 2029, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Responding to a dense urban context, the building is designed to evolve and adapt to changing demands over time. The modular structural system can be constructed efficiently and allows programmatic versatility as units can be added or removed when necessary. Thus, the units easily transform between office space and residential quarters. Upper level terraces allow for gardens and greenery in the midst of downtown Rotterdam. Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe units are stacked to recede horizontally as the building rises vertically, providing generous open space at the street level. Modules shade interstitial area in order to engage passersby and facilitate interaction between building and city.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe project is required to be the most sustainable building in the Netherlands. Two large atriums connected to a climate system work towards achieving this goal. Functioning as the building’s lungs, the atrium climate system stores warm air in summer and cold air in winter, releasing the energy as desired. Hi-tech translucent insulation in the glass facade allows for energy efficiency. Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeSave this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe building aims to mediate between existing structures through its ambiguous form. The street between town hall and the post office aligns with Stadskantoor’s axis of symmetry and extends between the two buildings into a passageway to the Haagseveer. Stadskantoor reflects the scale of the neighboring Stadtimmerhuis by paralleling the same floor heights, and maintaining a plinth height of 20 meters to accommodate the aesthetic of the surrounding Laurenskwartier.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeRem Koolhaas adds, “Our structural system – a three dimensional Vierendeel structure in steel – enables us to improvise and to liberate the ground almost in its entirety, to interpret the ‘Stadswinkel’ as an unencumbered public space, in which we arrange the interaction between citizen and city in a dignified, spacious urban landscape, with an almost ‘Roman’ scale and materiality.”Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeProject gallerySee allShow lessAIA Report Finds Increasing Acceptance of Carbon Reduction TargetsArchitecture NewsRIBA Launches Centenery Square Regeneration Competition for BirminghamArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Meent 119, 3011 JH Rotterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgLinkedin Kacey Bowen printThe TCU showgirls squad features 28 members who perform on the sidelines at sporting events, but senior captain Destiny Boos said it is more than just members on a team dancing together.It is young women who are making the best of their experiences by remembering why they love and value the opportunity to be a showgirl, she said.Boos, one of three captains on the squad and the team’s only senior member, said she has learned a lot from her experiences as a showgirl.Life of a showgirlBoos started dancing when she was just two years old. It is that love of performing and dancing that has gotten her to where she is today, she said.Boos said performing on game day is one of her favorite parts of being a showgirl. The fan atmosphere and being actively involved in game day is incredible, she said.For the showgirls, game day starts four hours before kick-off. They get to the field, stretch and make sure everything is ready before running through pregame with the band. Then, they change and go through their halftime performance. After they watch the band practice, they practice their third quarter routine with music, Boos said.Being on the field is a good time to make sure all the little things are in place, like practicing with the yard lines, figuring out spacing on the field and running through routines with the loudspeaker system to make sure it all works, she said. It’s the mechanical aspects to make sure everything is ready that are the most important on gameday, Boos said.During the game, the team performs both a halftime and third quarter routine, but also stands on the steps by the student section to cheer on the Horned Frogs.“Then, the game is over and we do it all again next week.” Boos said.Game days are a lot of performing and intense work, but it’s worth it, she said.“It’s the feeling of doing the alma mater and seeing all the fans looking down on everyone on the field,” Boos said. “You feel very honored to be at TCU and to be a showgirl.”Life outside of showgirlsOther than being on showgirls, Boos also has a required internship for her social work major. She works 16 hours through the internship, takes 12 hours of classes, and leads practices as one of the captains for showgirls.She said being on showgirls has taught her how to be aware of time commitments, how to organize and how to be a communicator. She takes her days one at a time, then her weeks one at a time.More than just time commitments, being a leader on a team has taught her the importance of making sure each team member feels valued and that they are important, she said.“We love having them on the team,” Boos said.Being the only senior on the team and one of three captains, Boos takes on the role of guiding the team.Boos said even with a diverse mix of personalities and a big group of girls, they get along well. She said no one else at TCU has the experience of dancing together like they do, so it’s something they all hold close to them.She shares advice with them on how to make sure they aren’t getting too wrapped up in the perks and the beauty aspects of the program. It’s easy to compare yourself to others and beat yourself down, she said.“I try to encourage them to hold onto why they do it specifically and individually.” Boos said.She tells them that their experiences are not dependent on how the year is. She reminds them to make the best of their own experiences and cherish the friendships and memories that come, she said.Boos will ask them: “When you perform, what do you want TCU to see from you?”She said by putting it in that perspective, the showgirls discover so much about themselves.“I can look back and say, ‘Wow I’ve grown so much from this program,’” Boos said. “I took away so much from it: dancing for a school that I love so much.” ReddIt Twitter TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Kacey Bowen Linkedin Kacey Bowen + posts Kacey Bowen Kacey is a junior journalism major from Friendswood, Texas.

first_imgChicago Animal Care and Control(CHICAGO) — An alligator was captured in Humboldt Park Lagoon in Chicago early Tuesday morning, one week after the reptile was first spotted there.The gator, nicknamed “Chance the Snapper,” was hiding in the lily pads when he was caught safely and unharmed at about 1:30 a.m., officials said.Expert Frank Robb, who traveled to- Chicago from Florida to help capture the animal, said he reeled Chance in from the shore and then “grabbed ahold of him.”Robb presented Chance to captivated reporters at the Humboldt Park Boathouse Tuesday morning, ending the unusual, week-long hunt.The gator is about 5 feet long and weighs about 30 to 40 pounds, Robb said. He appears healthy, officials said.Chance was believed to have been a pet that someone dropped off at the lagoon, Jenny Schlueter, a spokeswoman for Chicago Animal Care and Control, told ABC News last week. After days of searching, the area around the lagoon was closed Monday in the hopes that the quiet would help lure the animal out of hiding.The gator will eventually go to a zoo or sanctuary, officials said.

first_imgConstruction deaths upOn 1 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Figures show the building industry clearly needs to examine its safetyrecordMore workers died on building sites in the past nine months on record thanin the whole of the previous 12 months, leading to serious concerns aboutsafety in the construction trade, the Health and Safety Commission has said. From last March to December 2001, a total of 86 workers were killed onconstruction sites, compared with 85 workers killed between April 1999 andMarch 2000. The 1999/2000 figure also showed a substantial increase on statistics forthe previous year, in which 68 people were killed on construction sites, saidthe commission. But the number of accidents in the sector also increased – although lesssharply, with 5,040 people suffering major injuries in 1999/2000 and 10,292suffering injuries that kept them off work for more than three days. This compared with 5,034 and 9,576 respectively reported the year before. Nevertheless, construction workers were six times more likely to have anaccident at work than the average British worker, said the HSC. The manufacturing sector reported 46 worker deaths in the nine months toDecember 2000, with 39 deaths reported in agriculture and 51 deaths in theservice industries. The sharp rise in the fatalities in the construction sector has led the HSCto challenge the industry to improve its health and safety record. Health and Safety Commission chairman Bill Callaghan called on the industryto commit itself to action, urging those within construction to draw up theirown action plans to meet Government safety targets. “We know what kills people and we know how to prevent accidents, but wecan’t have a health and safety inspector on all of the million or soconstruction sites,” he said.
