Life in the fast lane – the wings with wow-factor

first_imgOne of the many extraordinary things about this Rugby World Cup has been the weather. Considering this is autumn in Britain, the tiny number of matches which have been played in the rain is unbelievable and the dry conditions have helped teams deliver some breathtaking tries. Roaring success: Adam Ashley-Cooper celebrates his try against Scotland. (Photo: Getty Images)Can the Wallabies tame the Pumas?Can Australia’s wing nullify the threat offered by Imhoff and Santiago, or match them blow for blow? The partnership which took them to victory over Wales in their last pool game and Scotland in the quarter-final certainly has the experience to do so, as Adam Ashley-Cooper boasts 112 caps and Drew Mitchell has 68, and both have scored 34 Test tries.The Wallabies started the tournament with Ashley-Cooper and Rob Horne on the wings, but after Horne injured his shoulder in the win over England, Mitchell stepped in and reminded everyone of his worth, with two tries against Scotland to match his two against Uruguay. His tally of World Cup tries is now 14, just one behind the joint all-time leaders, Jonah Lomu and Bryan Habana.Coming through: Drew Mitchell in full flight against Scotland. (Photo: Getty ImagesThe 31-year-old might not have expected to be at this World Cup, after leaving home soil to play for Toulon, but when Australia relaxed their “no overseas players” rule earlier this year, it opened the door for Mitchell to continue his Test career.Ashley-Cooper has played plenty of Test rugby at full-back and centre, but he’s been on the wing throughout 2015 and is looking as sharp as ever. He might only have scored one try at this World Cup, but his vast experience will be invaluable to Australia as they attempt to reach their fourth Rugby World Cup final.Will the Wallabies bound onwards, or will the Pumas have too much bite for them? It will be fun finding out. Wings take flightDown the years, Argentine rugby has been famed more for its forward power than its scintillating back play, but at this tournament the main headline-grabbers in the Pumas’ ranks have been fly-half Nicolas Sanchez, and the two wings, Imhoff and Santiago Cordero.Imhoff is joint second in the tournament’s list of try-scorers, with five (Julian Savea has eight). He is also joint second in the table of clean breaks with ten, and as only England’s Anthony Watson is ahead of him on 11, Imhoff should overhaul that mark on Sunday.Fresh perspective: Argentina’s back play has surprised many people. (Photo: Getty Images).The 27-year-old from Rosario has spent the last four seasons plying his trade with Racing Metro in Paris. He had 16 Test tries to his name before the start of this tournament, scored in 29 matches, including a hat-trick against South Africa in August, but it’s fair to say his five in the last five games have put Imhoff in the spotlight like never before.His pace is electric, he chooses great running lines and will definitely have been a focus of attention in Australia’s video analysis this week.A newer kid on the block, 21-year-old Cordero has just 16 caps and his only Test tries before this tournament had been a hat-trick against Paraguay in May. He made his international debut against England in November 2013, a month before his 20th birthday, and has been playing club rugby for Regatas de Bella Vista, in Buenos Aires. He will be a member of Argentina’s new Super Rugby team in 2016. Cordero might not have expected to play a leading role at this World Cup, but injuries to Gonzalo Camacho and Montero Manuel gave him an opportunity and he made the most of it, scoring two tries against Georgia – including one from a swerving run from his own half – and another against Tonga. He didn’t cross the whitewash in the quarter-final win over Ireland, but Cordero’s chip sent Imhoff over for his second try. Hitting the heights: Juan Imhoff scores in the quarter-final against Ireland. center_img Numbering up – the wings’ RWC 2015 statsMetres made – Cordero (four matches) 348m, Imhoff (five matches) 306m, Ashley-Cooper (four matches) 207m, Mitchell (three matches) 202mCarries over the gain line – Cordero 12, Imhoff 7, Ashley-Cooper 6, Mitchell 15Defenders beaten – Cordero 18, Imhoff 15, Ashley-Cooper 2, Mitchell 16For all the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. The forecast is dry again for this Sunday, when Argentina and Australia meet in their World Cup semi-final at Twickenham. Let’s hope it stays that way, as both these teams are capable of producing a fantastic spectacle of running rugby if the elements are in their favour.Argentina have made more metres in attack at this World Cup than any other team. Their total of 3,227m from the first five matches surpasses even New Zealand on 3,077 and works out at an astonishing average of 655.4 per match. The Pumas have scored 26 tries, at an average of just over five per match, and only the All Blacks are ahead of them there, with 34 tries so far.Australia lag behind in these stats a little, with 22 tries (4.4 per match) and 2,021 metres made, but their average of 35 points per match is still none too shabby. If they and Argentina keep producing this kind of return during their semi-final, we are in for some match.Having fun: Santiago Cordero (centre) celebrates a try against Georgia (Photo: Getty Images).As Argentina wing Juan Imhoff says: “We love to attack. There is less pressure and less money in the south. People there have nothing to lose. In the north, the most important thing is to win. In the south, the most important thing is to entertain, to create a beautiful game.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

When Ed and Leigh set out to build the home, they contacted F9 Productions for an interview and during that interview, they had three goals in mind: A home that was efficient, a home that would endure, a home that would function efficiently. When Ed and Leigh set out to design and build a solar augmented house, it was a choice to build differently, to build smarter. A structure that passively offsets heating costs while maximizing the use of a beautiful mountain view. Efficiency is a Win-win, better for the homeowner and better for the environment. Passive solar heat gain accounts for 75% of our home heating needs. At 8,200ft of elevation in climate Zone 5, the high temperature hovers around freezing through the winter. Even in these cold winter conditions, the hydronic in-floor heating is used less than 6 hours each night.Save this picture!© Jason BussSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Jason BussThe heat engine of the home is a southeasterly window wall paired with masonry thermal masses. The exposed concrete slab floor and an internal brick wall provide 90 tons of thermal mass. During the summer, the sloped high ceilings carry hot air up and out of the house via awning windows. Endurance For Ed’s family, building a custom home was a once in my lifetime opportunity. With many decades ahead of us, the house needs to accommodate our changing needs as we age. This meant no stairs, ADA compliant doors, and hallways. Additionally, blocking was placed within the walls for handrails if needed. Beyond mobility concerns, the structure itself needs to last well into the future. The house’s location in the Rocky Mountain high county creates additional structural demands. To resist the strain of 100mph winds and yards of snow, a steel post and beam system support the roof.Save this picture!© Jason BussSave this picture!© Jason BussTo mitigate the ever-present wildfire danger, the exterior material palette is steel, masonry, and glass. With Class A fire rated TPO roofing and IPE decking. Functionality Ed and his Leigh have always believed that form must follow function. In a well thought out system, there must be a reason for everything. Things without reason should be removed. This belief sets the tone for the home. The floor-to-ceiling windows and brick wall passively heat the home. The island kitchen separates cooking from baking and guests from hosts. Long roof overhangs protect the house from snow and block the high summer sun. Elegance is the intersection of function, beauty, and simplicity. The structure’s simple geometric shapes respect the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. As does the muted palette of the interior. The building should frame the expansive view, not complete with it.Save this picture!© Jason BussProject gallerySee allShow less225 Polk Avenue Office Space / HASTINGS ArchitectureSelected ProjectsPaul Andersen and Paul Preissner on American FramingInterviews Share 2019 CopyAbout this officeF9 ProductionsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGoldenOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on April 17, 2020Cite: “Eastwatch House / F9 Productions” 17 Apr 2020.

FRSB to break even by June

first_imgThe Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB), the self-regulatory body for fundraising in the UK, has published its annual accounts and says that it is on target to break even by June 2010.The accounts cover the period July 2008 to June 2009, the second full year of operation by the organisation that was set up to champion best practice in fundraising and ensure that the public could give to charities with confidence.The figures include a one-off grant from the Office of the Third Sector to fund the launch of the FRSB’s Give with Confidence campaign.FRSB chief executive Alistair McLean said that, half-way through its current financial year, the organisation was still on target for this break-even point, and for membership growth. Since June 2009, membership figures had increased from 866 to just under 1200 members. McLean pointed out that its members charities now account for nearly 50% of all the estimated £10 billion voluntary giving in the UK.The break even point has been reached even though the organisation has held its membership fees for two years running. Nevertheless, he said that the organisation would be able to sustain its work with its current staff numbers on its budgeted income.It is cutting its marketing budget from £70,000 (excluding the one-off OTS grant) to £35,000. McLean explains that this is part of its move to what he called “piggyback marketing” with its charity members. “They help us promote the FRSB brand by including the logo and give with confidence tick on all their fundraising and communications material,” he explained.He added that the tick had appeared extensively on all the Disasters Emergency Committee’s material for its emergency Haiti appeal, following the DEC’s decision to become a FRSB member. Many of the DEC’s members were already FRSB members.www.frsb.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis FRSB to break even by June About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Markets Breathe Easy With Neutral WASDE Report

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Markets Breathe Easy With Neutral WASDE Report Previous articleHoosier Ag This Week – The Weekend Podcast for January 11 2020Next articleWashington Week Ahead: China, US to Sign Trade Deal, USMCA Likely Delayed Agri-Pulse Markets Breathe Easy With Neutral WASDE Report SHARE Facebook Twitter By Agri-Pulse – Jan 12, 2020 SHARE By Ben Nuelle, Associate Editor Agri-PulseCorn production increases offset by harvested acre reductions provided a relatively neutral World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report  Friday, giving grain traders a sense of relief.USDA officials raised corn production to 13.69 billion bushels, a slight bump from the December 2019 projection of 13.66 billion.Allendale broker Nathan Cardwell said after a late harvest such as what was seen in 2019, it’s not uncommon to see USDA raise production.“History seems to repeat itself,” Cardwell said. “Each year, like ‘85, ‘92, ‘08, and ’09 … USDA raised production between November and January.”Cardwell said USDA “didn’t let traders down” as most analysts expected the increase in production.But USDA offset production numbers with a decrease in harvested acres. The Department projected harvested corn acres at 81.5 million, down 300,000 acres from the 81.8 million-acre estimate in December. Corn ending stocks dropped to 1.89 billion bushels from last month’s projection of 1.91 billion bushels.Statisticians lowered soybean harvested acre projections to 75 million acres this month, a 600,000-acre drop. Soybean production totaled 3.558 billion bushels, a slight increase over the 3.55 billion December estimate. Ending stocks were maintained from last month at 475 million bushels.“I think this report itself, is a big report that answers a lot of questions that everybody has been looking for,” Cardwell remarked.He added the markets “took a deep sigh of relief” with the somewhat neutral report.USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service also released the Quarterly Grains Stocks report, which came in below traders’ expectations for corn and wheat.The department pegged corn stocks as of Dec. 1 at 11.38 billion bushels compared to traders’ expectations of 11.47 billion.Wheat stocks projections as of Dec. 1 came in at 1.83 billion bushels; the average trade guess was 1.91 billion bushels.Winter wheat seedings are down 355,000 from last year, which caused wheat to trade higher at midday, Cardwell said.Soybeans stocks as of December 1, are projected at 3.25 billion bushels compared to traders’ expectations of 3.19 billion.Grain traders will now turn their attention to South American weather and the “phase one” trade deal signing between the U.S. and China set to take place next Wednesday.For more news, go to www.Agri-Pulse.com.

Crop Progress: Heat Has Arrived, Some Fields Show Drought Stress

first_img Previous articleVirtual Livestock Shows Taking OffNext articleHow USDEC Is Utilizing Virtual Meetings to Market US Dairy USDA Communications Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Hot and dry weather persisted throughout most of Indiana, though scattered early week rains brought relief to some areas, according to USDA NASS, Great Lakes Regional Field Office. Topsoil and subsoil moisture levels decreased from the previous week.The average temperature for the week was 78.3 degrees Fahrenheit, 4.8 degrees above normal for the State. The amount of rainfall varied from none to 1.57 inches over the week. The statewide average precipitation was 0.62 inches. There were 6.0 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending July 5.Spotty rains left some fields saturated, while others were showing signs of drought stress by the end of the week. The more significant rain events were confined to the southern part of the state. Corn silking was running behind the five-year average (7 percent last week compared to the five-year average of 14 percent), while soybeans were blooming just ahead of schedule (26 percent last week compared to the five-year average of 21 percent).Crop conditions decreased slightly for both corn and soybeans. 60 percent of the corn is rated in good to excellent condition and 62 percent of soybeans are rated good to excellent. Nationally, 71 percent of corn and soybeans are rated good to excellent.The dry weather allowed for significant progress with winter wheat harvest and hay cutting. Livestock were reported to be in good condition, but pasture conditions also suffered from the hot and dry weather. Other activities for the week included pesticide applications and scouting fields.

Clown hysteria reaches TCU

first_imgFacebook printThe clown phenomenon has come to TCU.Students reported multiple sightings early Tuesday morning through social media.TCU police said they haven’t receive any calls from students reporting clowns on campus, but they have received calls from concerned parents.“I will tell you it’s a hoax,” said Robert Felts, a TCUPD dispatcher. “We don’t have any reports. We have not seen any clowns.”A man wearing a white clown mask, accompanied by two unmasked people, was spotted walking in the TCU Greek community said Anna Kathryn Groom, a sophomore business major. The clown, she said, was roaming after 12:00 a.m and drew a crowd of students who took pictures of and with the anonymous person.Groom said she didn’t think this clown was a threat.“I think they were walking around trying to freak people out,” Groom said.She posted this photo on her Snapchat.The clown was spotted after midnight wearing a white mask with red rimmed eyes and mouth. The person was walking around campus with two others who were not dressed as clowns.Martin De Rito, a Froggie-Five-0 driver, said he saw about 200 people walking around Monday night looking for clowns. He said the “clown hunters” were carrying baseball bats, hockey sticks, golf clubs, tennis rackets and a hammer.De Rito said the groups were walking around saying they wanted to find a clown. Other groups packed into truck beds and drove around campus yelling and holding up sports equipment and various club-like items.A group of students went out “clown hunting” with various objects like tennis rackets, hockey sticks and pool cues.Froggie drivers have a radio to TCUPD to report suspicious behavior on campus. He said drivers relayed information from their passengers to dispatchers.De Rito said he saw clown hunting parties on campus throughout his 11:30 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. shift.The menacing clowns have been reported across the country since the sightings began in late August in South Carolina.Some people have posted about the phenomenon on social media.
