Ronan O’Gara and Munster snatch victory from Leinster at Thomond Park

first_imgWednesday Apr 6, 2011 Ronan O’Gara and Munster snatch victory from Leinster at Thomond Park Points machine Ronan OGara kicked Munster to a 24-23 victory over Leinster in their Magners League meeting at Thomond Park. They remain top of the table after the rivals battled it out for eighty minutes in a closely fought affair.A last gasp penalty by OGara denied Leinster of a famous victory in Limerick, despite them scoring the only try of the match, a top quality team try that was finished well by wing Shane Horgan.Munster had been 20-9 down at half time but managed to get back into the game with OGara taking his opportunities and remaining ice cool when the big moment arose.The win for Munster leaves them 12 points clear of second place Ulster.OGara had a bad black eye after the game from a knock, but will be fit for Munsters Amlin Challenge Cup quarter final against Brive this coming weekend.“You only have to look at their home record, some of the teams they’ve beaten – Stade Francais, Clermont, Perpignan, Toulon – to see its going to be a tough assignment for us,” said OGara.“They’re a typical French side, they take pride in their home performance, their supporters expect that, so it’s going to be massive task for us to win there.” Below are short highlights from the match.

The city of Clichy la Garenne has committed to an ambitious urban reconstruction project that highlights an exceptional location at the entrance to the city, south of the town. The construction of 47 homes by SEMERCLI falls within this context. The real challenge was to introduce new buildings made of contemporary architecture, more dense. The new building must thus preserve the unique spirit of these neighborhoods, linked to the history of the “faubourgs”. The final goal was to create a ten-story building which had the least possible impact at street level. This apparent contradiction was, for us, the basis of the project: a building in two pieces including a lower piece, which becomes part of the continuity of the street, and a second piece of the building, which is separated and rises up in height, slightly set back.Save this picture!DiagramThe lower part of the building belongs to the universe of the street, the continuities, and the pedestrians. There is a relationship between it and the existing buildings. The taller building rises and distinguishes itself from the traditional framework of the city. This way of rising into the sky multiplies the façades with views, and preserves the vision of the open sky as much as possible for the pedestrians and inhabitants on the south side of the street. Some apartments are located in two small wings built around the backyard. Save this picture!© Michel DenancéThe organization of the volumes allows the quantitative specifications to be met and permits not to sacrify what we consider to be essential to the interior quality of an apartment, that is: apartments have different orientations, kitchens benefit from direct natural light, and living areas are maximized and functional.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe site creates an interlacing of gardens, patios and passages on the ground floor. This organization anticipates the richness of volumes found in the building. The hallway is generous and bright: stretching between the street and the interior garden like the storage area for strollers, spacious and functional.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Michel DenancéThe façades are insulated on the exterior, and are treated either with lime plaster or a metal cladding. The windows and joinery are in aluminum, with an anodized finishing. The color of the plaster is in keeping with the colors of the existing buildings on the street. The cladding is very light, in order to reflect the sunlight and brighten the center of the block. The volumes are simple in order to develop a certain constructive and technical rationality. The openings are very wide in order to maximize the penetration of natural light and highlight the visual exchange with the exterior.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraProject gallerySee allShow lessChallenge Your Spatial Perception Skills with This New GameArchitecture NewsArkitema Architects Designs Hill-Shaped Visitors Center for Mols Bjerge National ParkArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Clichy, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

KorourText description provided by the architects. Villa LAC is the answer to the contrast between the noisy road to the west and the peaceful breathtaking view of Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc to the east. These opposite realities can be perceived on each façade. The northwest elevation is massive and opaque, with a single opening that creates the main entrance through which the lake is revealed to everyone entering the house. In the southeast façade, on the other hand, floor to ceiling windows are the “invisible” layer that allows the Lake Geneva and the Alps to become a permanent landscape for every space.Save this picture!© A. KorourProtecting two centennial plane trees and integrating them in the architectural composition is the reason for the structural solution. The lower level fits exactly between both trees’ roots, while the main level is cantilevered over these (4.80m/16ft to the south and 3.30m/10ft to the north). The main level is divided in two volumes. The north one houses the kitchen and dining room while the south one accommodates the master bedroom and an office overlooking the main living room, a 300m³(10’500ft³) space with 6m(19ft) high sliding windows.Save this picture!© A. KorourSave this picture!Ground Level PlanSave this picture!© A. KorourThe lower level houses the bedrooms on the lakeside and the technical, storage and maintenance areas on the roadside underground. The house is organized around an interior patio with three different functions. It represents a source of natural light for all the common areas, filtered in summer by the Ginkgo’s foliage; it creates visual connections in all directions, allowing the inhabitants to easily understand the house’s spaces and circulations.Save this picture!© A.

The funds will be used to help find Madeleine McCann, who was abducted in Portugal on 3 May 2007, support her family and bring her abductors to justice.Postal and online donations were being accepted immediately, with donations via branches of NatWest and The Royal Bank of Scotland being accepted from tomorrow morning.The fund is being handled by the London-based International Family Law Group who say that “all donations will be processed free of charge”. The group, specialist lawyers in child abduction and international family law, were last week instructed together with a QC by Madeleine’s parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, to help them in the search for Madeleine. Advertisement The appeal funds will be channeled into a limited company, as the appeal can not have charitable status. There is therefore no opportunity for donations to attract Gift Aid or other tax-efficient elements. They will be used to help cover escalating legal bills.As yet there is no direct online donation service. Instead online supporters are given details of the bank account to which they should transfer their donations, which will doubtless cut down on the number of online donations. There is no SMS/text donation yet either. Also, the postal address for donations does not utilise the PO Box facility, with donations being sent directly to the International Family Law Group’s office address.Some early errors on the website were corrected within a few hours. For example, the date of Madeleine’s abduction was originally posted as 3 April and not 3 May 2007.Any surplus funds will be used to help families and missing children in United Kingdom, Portugal and elsewhere in similar circumstances.last_img read more

Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics

Along with sports writing, Colin hopes to work in sports announcing after he graduates. ReddIt Colin Post Facebook Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Twitter Also on Monday, the NCAA ranked TCU at 8th on their national rankings.SoccerFollowing their first loss of the 2020-2021 season last weekend, No. 7 TCU Soccer ended their season on a high note on Saturday night, taking down Notre Dame 2-1 to finish the season at 11-1-1.Upperclassmen Messiah Bright and Yazmeen Ryan scored in the match, as the Frogs outshot the Fighting Irish 25-11 to control the offensive side of the ball practically all night.TCU’s weekend was not over there, though. For the fifth-straight season, the Frogs received a bid to play in the NCAA Tournament, earning the fourth-overall seed. This is the first season ever that TCU has been given a national seed.Bright was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week (first of her career) for her goal against Notre Dame and assist on Ryan’s goal, which would eventually prove to be the game-winner.The Frogs will begin to play in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on the weekend of April 30 against the winner of New Mexico/Navy, following their first-round bye.Men’s GolfEntering a tournament with eight of the top 32 teams in the nation as the 62nd-ranked team, TCU Men’s Golf shocked the nation with a first place finish at the Thunderbird Collegiate in Phoenix, Ariz., this weekend.After finishing 8th on day one, the Frogs rallied to finish first on the following two days, edging out Arizona State and conference-rival Oklahoma State (No. 3 nationally) by four and five strokes, respectively.Sophomore Jacob Skov Olesen led the way for TCU, finishing a career-best 11-under 202 to finish 4th overall.Beach VolleyballNo. 7 TCU Beach Volleyball concluded their regular season on Sunday with a 23-6 record, including an outstanding 15-2 in conference play. (Photo courtesy of gofrogs.com)Despite dropping two matches to fourth-ranked and tournament host Florida State, No. 7 TCU Beach Volleyball set two program records at the FSU Invitational this weekend, rounding out their regular season.The Frogs swept both Southern Miss and Tulane in the tournament, finishing with school records in season win total (23) and season sweeps (10).Junior Hailey Brockett also etched her own name in the TCU record books, recording her 21st career-ranked win to pass former teammate Avery Arellano (20) for first place.The Frogs head to Huntsville, Ala., this weekend to compete for a conference title in the CCSA Championships.Men’s TennisWith a 4-1 win over No. 21 Texas Tech on Friday night, No. 6 TCU Men’s Tennis clinched a share of the Big 12 regular-season title for the fourth time in six years.The Frogs dropped their first conference match of the season on Sunday, falling to No. 2 Baylor to share the conference title with both the Bears and Texas.TCU will begin play as the third seed in the Big 12 Championships on April 24 against sixth seed Oklahoma.

The West Jordan, Utah native saw a 2-0 fastball he liked and smacked a grand slam 359 feet to right field, leading the Frogs to a weekend sweep of the Cowboys and putting the cherry on top of a successful weekend for TCU Athletics.Not only did TCU football wrap up their spring season with their first spring game since 2018, but a plethora of other Frog squads competed, picking up eight wins on the weekend.BaseballTaylor’s heroics led TCU to victory on Sunday, but the Frogs’ sweep of the Cowboys had been a hard-fought team effort all weekend, as TCU won the first two games by one run each.Prior to Friday night’s game, the Frogs got a little foreshadowing of how their weekend would go without even knowing it. As he was eating a Ding Dong prior to the start of the first inning, third-year manager Easton Tally related his snack to the way he felt TCU would play, predicting a slew of home runs.Boy, was Tally right. The Frogs blasted four homers on Friday night alone, with perhaps the most crucial coming in three-run fashion from first baseman Gene Wood in the 6th inning to give TCU the lead for good.TCU would need each and every run, holding off a late OSU surge and winning the game 9-8 to take an early series lead.Things got no less tense on Saturday, as the teams traded blows back-and-forth all afternoon to reach a 7-7 tie in the bottom of the 7th on a two-run shot by designated hitter Hunter Wolfe.In the bottom of the 9th, with the score still locked at 7, Wolfe would come up big for the Frogs, smoking a ball too hard for the OSU shortstop to handle and scoring catcher Zach Humphreys to win the game.On Monday, Wolfe was named Big 12 Player of the Week after hitting .500 and collecting 5 RBIs in the series.Finally, on Sunday, Taylor hit TCU’s 6th dinger of the weekend to destroy all hope for Oklahoma State and hand TCU their third series sweep since the start of conference play.When Taylor returned to the dugout, he was swarmed by teammates as he put his signature on an item to bring the weekend full circle: a box of Ding Dongs. First-year Brayden Taylor rounds third after hitting an 8th-inning grand slam on Sunday to give TCU the lead over OSU.

DNA Investigation of Gun in McClain Shooting Could Take a Month

first_imgPublic Safety DNA Investigation of Gun in McClain Shooting Could Take a Month Weapon may be untraceable ‘ghost gun’ cobbled together from other firearms By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Monday, August 24, 2020 | 4:17 pm Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff DNA results on a gun alleged to have belonged to a man shot by police in Northwest Pasadena near La Pintoresca Park won’t be completed for several weeks according to Police Chief John Perez.The weapon could go to a testing center in Glendale or to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which could process the evidence more quickly.“At this time, the expectancy for accountability will continue. The community needs answers,” Perez told Pasadena Now on Monday. “The DNA and fingerprint request was submitted and we must wait 30 days for the information to return.”The shooting could also bring focus on privately constructed weapons that are almost impossible to trace. Police say the weapon recovered at the scene could be an untraceable weapon like many that are popping up in California.“We are looking at the possibility that it could be a ghost gun. It could be two parts poorly put together,” Perez said.“Ghost guns” lack commercial serial numbers or other identifying marks, making them invisible and hard to track.Pictures of the gun look as if the weapon was coming apart.“I think these types of guns are extremely dangerous because they are not reliable and could even hurt the person using the weapon,” said Deputy Police Chief Cheryl Moody. “On top of that, the gun is not traceable.”Police say Anthony McClain ditched the weapon as he fled from officers just before 8 p.m. on Aug. 15 during a traffic stop. He was shot once by a pursuing officer and died after being transferred to Huntington Hospital.State worriesCalifornia officials are worried that mass shooters and other criminals who cannot legally purchase a weapon are using ghost guns as an end run around to get by the state’s stricter gun laws.One in three guns seized in the state has no serial number, according to federal firearms officials.In 2019, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said a 16-year-old boy Nathaniel Berhow fatally shot two fellow students and wounded three others at a Saugus High School School used an unregistered, untraceable “ghost gun.”“Congress and state legislatures enact all these crimes about gun registration but now the gun industry is creating a way to just bypass the entire thing by creating a mechanism to manufacture weapons yourself,” Sheriff Villanueva told ABC News.In Riverside, police said an untraceable AR-15-type weapon assembled from separately acquired parts was also ghosted.In that case, Aaron Luther killed California Highway Patrol Officer Andre Moye and wounded two others in a shootout in Riverside. Luther, an ex-convict, was shot during the exchange of fire and was pronounced dead at a hospital.Laws are comingSeveral laws have been passed that require accountability for gun owners and sellers, including the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Brady Bill, which created the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICBS) and requires information on private purchases transfers be sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), but these laws don’t prohibit residents from creating their own weapons.However, in 2016, the state passed a measure requiring anyone planning to build a homemade firearm to obtain a serial number from the state and pass a background check. Starting on July 1, 2024, “firearm precursor parts” will only be sold through a licensed dealer.While hobbyists have long been able to use spare parts to create a firearm, modern technology has made it far easier to build a deadly weapon.“These are a real concern for our community,” Perez said. “We don’t find them very often which is even more of a critical issue for all of us.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Leap into cyberspace

first_imgLeap into cyberspaceOn 18 Jan 2000 in Personnel Today With the fear of getting left behind by technology hanging over businesses, many feel they are stuck between a rock and a hard place. But why is now the time to draw up your e-strategy? Jane Lewis reportsIt might be argued that, short of winning the Lottery, the only way to make real money quickly these days is to exploit the Web – and certainly the recent proliferation of fresh-faced young e-millionaires goes some way towards proving the point.But the real question facing most UK firms, as they set about emulating these paper tycoons, is where on earth to start? Is it just a case of launching wholesale into cyberspace, or is something altogether more sophisticated required?The Government is certainly not in the mood to hang around debating the point. Its message to small business is stark: get on-line, or risk going out of business. “If you don’t see the Internet as an opportunity, it will end up being a threat,” Tony Blair told a trembling audience recently. To demonstrate commitment to the electronic revolution, he has created a new post to drive it, appropriately called the e-envoy. Yet there is already clear evidence that cyberspace is proving no easy passport to big profits for the majority of Net entrepreneurs. “It’s a question of being between a rock and a hard place,” admits wine dealer Mark Badenie, who quit his job with a traditional merchant to set up AmiVin, which he claims was the world’s first on-line wine retailer. “If you are not on-line, you stand the risk of going out of business. If you go on-line, you also risk going out of business, because it can suck your resources dry. There is a real myth that going on-line costs nothing. If you build a proper web site and continue to develop it, it costs an absolute fortune, and will continue to.”Cut-throat businessThe world of e-commerce can also appear startlingly cut-throat to those grounded in the more sedate world of bricks and mortar. Badenie claims the greatest challenge now is “the risk of being overtaken by a monster, who will blow your business out of the water.” The main threat to him comes from established giants now looking to trade over the Web, “and they have millions of pounds behind them.”From the point of view of small operators like AmiVin, the positive side of net-trading is the scope of the potential market and the creative way it can be addressed. “It does allow for much more creativity than a shop can possibly allow, and you are not restricted by geography, so we have a completely global business,” says Badenie. Nonetheless, business has been disappointingly slow. Although on average 7,500 people visit the web site each month, only a small proportion – 5 per cent at the most – actually buy. The threat of credit card fraud is still cited as a real deterrent. Badenie remains confident that business will pick up in time, but to date he has spent £250,000 and gained little in return. “It’s a bit like racing horses. You know one is going to win, but you don’t know whether it’s going to be yours.”And some companies have already backed the wrong horse. When the record label New State Entertainment set up on-line to sell dance music it sold fewer than 70 CDs in a year and the label was forced to fold. Its driving force, Tom Parkinson, also blames continuing fears about security for its collapse, but also believes the shop-centric buying public in the UK was not yet ready for it. Some experts maintain that these disappointments are inevitable in a Net culture that has so far concentrated on selling to the consumer at the expense of improving wider business relationships.“People should stop being obsessed that the Internet is about selling books, music, etc to people in their homes. E-business is also about firms buying, selling and working with each other,” says IBM’s e-business manager, Peter Barnes. “Companies should start looking at how they could use the Net to communicate better with suppliers and business partners – those are the areas where we are seeing the most immediate and most successful return on investment.” IBM draws a semantic distinction between e-business, which is concerned with these business relationships, and e-commerce – which is about selling goods direct to the public.“The great thing about e-business is that you can integrate the whole of your supply chain – it is not just what’s happening within your company, it is your relationship with all your suppliers,” adds Andrew Forest of the Industrial Society. He believes that the potential for both e-commerce and e-business is “staggering” if properly tapped.“People don’t have to be IT wizards: they can quickly get the basics, and there is a lot of free help available. People should go and talk to their Business Link, Chamber of Commerce, or the Training and Enterprise Council,” says Forest.In the current rush to go on-line, the e-companies cleaning up are those majoring on web site design and strategy. Stuart Lawley’s start-up, oneview.net is typical. Since its launch last January, it has grown to be worth £20m. Lawley advises customers to take a modular approach to going on-line, perhaps investing no more than £20 a month at first and then upgrading facilities as time goes by. “Our market research shows only 10-15 per cent of small businesses have any kind of Web strategy at all. But using the Internet is very much part of a cost mitigation exercise, as well as promoting new business to new customers.” The most important first step, he adds, is to register your domain name at the earliest possibility.Maintaining valuesForest recommends that every business considering a leap into cyberspace should focus on two main propositions. “Think about what is special about your business and stick to that. Second, [assess] your values and make sure you and your staff really live those in every transaction.” So should every company start dreaming up an e-strategy now? “Yes, that’s what it amounts to,” he concludes.This article was extracted from Radio 4’s Nice Work programme.
