Ain’t no stopping me now: BIlly Vunipola carries hard against Ireland LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Six Nations is warming up and this weekend all eyes will be on Paris, Cardiff and Rome as the tournament unfolds. Here are six players expected to make a big impression Carlo Canna (Italy)Carlo Canna made his Six Nations debut on Saturday at the Stade de France, and marked it by racking up 13 points. He dotted down for a second-half try when his out-stretched arms caught a pass from Edoardo Gori and he dived over from close range. Canna converted his own try, and dispatched a penalty and a drop goal in what was almost a historic first ever victory for the Azzurri in Paris.Dream Six Nations debut: Carlo Canna scored a try and dropped a goal in an eye-catching performanceThe leggy 23-year-old was on the end of some fulsome praise from England coach Eddie Jones this week, with the Australian comparing him to Stephen Larkham. “Compliments are nice, but Jones’ tactics could actually be to try to increase the pressure on me ahead of Sunday,” straight-batted Canna. Despite the promising performance, Canna will need to brush up on his kicking game this week after missing two attempts at goal against France.Virimi Vakatawa (France)Having become a star on the Sevens circuit, Virimi Vakatawa was parachuted in by new French coach Guy Noves ain an attempt to re-install some va va voom in French rugby. The Fijian-born Vakatwa duly delivered, dotting down for the first try of this year’s Six Nations when he found himself with the ball on the left flank and displayed some clever footwork to evade a tackle from Leonardo Sarto and put France ahead.Power-packed: Virimi Vakatawa brought the Parisien crowd to their feetAnd it wasn’t long before Vakatwa had become the darling of the French crowd, with excitement ringing around the Stade de France whenever the winger got the ball in his hands. Ireland’s Dave Kearney has cited the shutting down of the French flyer as key to Irish hopes of achieving back-to-back Six Nations victories in Paris on Saturday.”You know that he’s got a real threat from the fact he’s thrived in Sevens,” said Kearney, who starts for Ireland on Saturday.“Give someone like that space and they’ll cause you trouble.” Sean O’Brien (Ireland)Ireland’s vice captain, and the man they call the ‘Tullow Tank’ is back in Irish colours this weekend after recovering from a hamstring injury. Tommy O’Donnell makes way in the starting XV for O’Brien after filling in for the first round of fixtures, despite the Munster man putting in a notable shift for the Irish against Wales.Battering ram: Sean O’Brien will bring his physicality to the FrenchBritish & Irish Lion O’Brien is an experience breakdown specialist, forcing two turnovers in his last appearance against France in the 2015 Rugby World Cup. He could be a target for some French retribution after his punch on lock Pascal Pape in the very same match saw him banned for the quarter-final. O’Brien’s ball-carrying can be devastating. He scored two tries in Ireland’s 40-10 victory over Scotland during the final day of last year’s Six Nations; a victory that gave the men in green their second successive Six Nations title. By David MarshAlun-Wyn Jones (Wales)Wales’ forwards coach Robin McBryde recently described 95-cap veteran Alun Wyn Jones as the totemic Welsh equivalent of Ireland’s Paul O’Connell – a more than fair comparison given Jones’ commitment in a Welsh shirt over the years. And not that the modest lock would ever boast about it, but he became Wales’ most capped second-row ever during the 2015 Rugby World Cup, surpassing Gareth Llewellyn’s haul of 92 caps.Trucking it up: Alun Wyn Jones puts his body on the line, time after timeJones, 30, was his consistent self last weekend, making 16 tackles in a bruising encounter with Ireland last week as Wales drew with Joe Schmidt’s side, but the Osprey faces the double threat of the Gray brothers, who together won 58 line-outs last year.Stuart Hogg (Scotland)Scotland continued their miserable try scoring record against England at Murrayfield on Saturday, having not crossed the whitewash against England at home since 2004. However it is not creativity Scotland struggle with. Finn Russell, Mark Bennett, and Tommy Seymour can all offer some zip in the Scottish back-line. Scotland’s problem is putting end product to their attacks, especially against Six Nations competition.On the gallop: Stuart Hogg races away to score a try against WalesStuart Hogg‘s try against Wales at Murrayfield last year showed that Stuart Hogg is capable of finishing half-chances. A quick Scottish turnover from past the half-way line saw Hogg streak down the left wing and dot the ball down under the posts. The 23-year-old has a point to prove after seeing red early on in this fixture two years ago, and could only watch from the sidelines as the Scots were dismantled by an unforgiving Welsh team, losing 51-3. Typically, Hogg was Scotland’s main threat last week against England, carrying the ball 101 metres and beating five defenders, and his ballerina-like footwork could cause Wales all sorts of problems this weekend.Billy Vunipola (England)The England No 8 put in one of the most eye-catching performances of the opening weekend with a man of the match display in England’s victory at Murrayfield. Billy Vunipola led from the front for the English last weekend. He made a total of 51 metres with ball in hand in a tireless effort in heavy traffic. He also contributed in defence, making a total of nine tackles.Juggernaut: Billy Vunipola carried up the guts of the Scottish defence time and time againThe former Wasps player has also played a major role in a Saracens team that have dominated the European Champions Cup this season. He took part in five of Saracen’s six pool matches and scored three tries, one of which – in the victory against Ulster at home – sealed Saracens qualification to the quarter-finals. However, this weekend Vunipola will get the opportunity to test himself against 115-time cap Italian icon Sergio Parisse, a stern test for the 23-year-old.

It had been shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in 350 individual pieces packed in more than 200 cases. The copper and iron statue was reassembled and dedicated the following year. It has become known around the world as an enduring symbol of freedom and democracy.The statue was designed by French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi (who modeled it after his own mother), with assistance from engineer Gustave Eiffel, who later developed the iconic tower in Paris bearing his name. The statue was initially scheduled to be finished by 1876, the 100th anniversary of America’s Declaration of Independence; however, fundraising efforts, which included auctions, a lottery and boxing matches, took longer than anticipated.Finally completed in Paris in the summer of 1884, the statue, a robed female figure with an uplifted arm holding a torch, reached its new home on June 17, 1885. After being reassembled, the 450,000-pound statue was officially dedicated on October 28, 1886.At the ceremony President Cleveland said, “We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home; nor shall her chosen altar be neglected.”Standing more than 305 feet from the foundation of its pedestal to the top of its torch, the statue, dubbed “Liberty Enlightening the World” by Bartholdi, was taller than any structure in New York City at the time. The statue was originally copper-colored, but over the years it underwent a natural color-change process called patination that produced its current greenish-blue hue.Today, the Statue of Liberty is one of America’s most famous landmarks. Over the years, it has been the site of political rallies and protests (from suffragettes to anti-war activists), has been featured in numerous movies and countless photographs, and has received millions of visitors from around the globe.From History.com Please enter your comment!

LaurenceBalanced DoorsWoodBlumer LehmannConsulting and Engineering in Wood ProjectsText description provided by the architects. Paz House is located in a neighborhood from the 1960s, approximately 70 km from Madrid. The architecture of the area could be considered conventional residential, without any architectural interest, built with tremendously heterogeneous topologies and materials. Outside the village of Robledo de Chavela is the Cofio River neighborhood, where the 1400 m2 site is on a steep slope on the edge of a cliff that overlooks a small river. The site is accessed from a road that goes around the top. Right across, to the west over the valley, rises the mountain again very steeply, generating a specially protected natural park. When we first saw the site, we felt the need to get there with the house, to be hung in the middle of the valley, suspended in the canopy of a tree, almost on the other side, listening to the murmur of the Cofio River just below. From here we had to solve a technical, functional and economic problem.Save this picture!© Carlos Fernández PiñarNeed gave way to ingenuity to the extreme, and we subcontracted all trades separately. None of them (all local offices), or us, had faced a structural problem for a home like this before. How to get there and achieve a unique room for two people? We started thinking: another iron ship as those from the visionary Russian Constructivists, a work of Tony Carr, a chair by Shapiro, a Max Bill piece, something heavy and light at the same time, gravity as a problem, scale as a work instrument, a large table or a small boat. We were definitely seeking a linear house with an ascending character. The straight line and an interior staircase with large steps 90 cm. wide, as for a garden, which articulates all functions. Beneath it is a small therapy pool 2m wide by 10 m long.Save this picture!© Carlos Fernández PiñarThe whole program develops inside a square metal frame and stretched metal skin (deploye) resting on a vessel of reinforced concrete, that contains the pool water and the deposits of diesel, boiler, sewage, etc. This iron artifact where all vital fluids are concentrated is the stomach of the animal, over 15 meters above the river. Nine HEB 300 legs unload the weight on the ground. They are the only contact of the house with the ground. The house, to maintain structural balance and some gravitational logic, cantilevers without any support 5,5 m over the river, and the same amount towards the road, with only 40 cm remaining between the house and the site over the access area. Thus, the balance of masses is achieved by taking the heavy elements to the concrete box and thus lowering the center of gravity.Save this picture!© Carlos Fernández PiñarThe crane that was available to us could only reach 18 m, that is, until the end of the concrete vessel. We could not reach out to build the furthest overhang, so we had to lift the entire metal cage of the house offset to the road, and then slide it over the concrete vessel, through manuals struts, on rails, to form the final overhang, like a train.Save this picture!© Carlos Fernández PiñarIn short, this house has been an adventure in which Paz and her husband Tomas are living. We appreciate their infinite confidence and courage, with which, they say, they feel fully identified.Save this picture!plansProject gallerySee allShow lessJG House / Speziale Linares ArquitectosSelected ProjectsLVC School / Nomena + Patricio BryceSelected Projects Share Architects: Arturo Franco, Fabrice van Teslaar Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily 2006 Year: “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/498536/paz-house-arturo-franco-fabrice-van-teslaar Clipboard Paz House / Arturo Franco, Fabrice van Teslaar ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/498536/paz-house-arturo-franco-fabrice-van-teslaar Clipboard CopyHouses•Spain Save this picture!© Carlos Fernández Piñar+ 14 Share Paz House / Arturo Franco, Fabrice van TeslaarSave this projectSavePaz House / Arturo Franco, Fabrice van Teslaar CopyAbout this officeArturo FrancoOfficeFollowFabrice van TeslaarOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSpainPublished on April 23, 2014Cite: “Paz House / Arturo Franco, Fabrice van Teslaar” [Casa Paz / Arturo Franco + Fabrice van Teslaar] 23 Apr 2014.

The Hill House is a modern year-round refuge located on a wooded hillside. The house, acting as a threshold, marks the transition from trees to rolling fields that extend to the distant waterfront. Because it is situated on a nature preserve and protected wetlands, great care was taken to design a home reverential to its location. The client, a trustee of the Shelter Island Nature Conservancy, requested a home that was sensitively knit into the site with intimate spaces for the family and a large outdoor event space for entertaining.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Scott FrancesA series of stone retaining walls form stepped terraces in the landscape.

SHARE By Purdue University News Service – Aug 20, 2020 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter With the global pandemic, many face-to-face workshops and field days have been canceled, but the business of agriculture goes on and so does Purdue University’s popular online agronomy course series.Aimed at agricultural producers and the businesses serving them, the Purdue Agronomy e-Learning Academy is now taking registrations for online courses scheduled to begin Sept. 16. The 12-week, noncredit courses run through Dec. 9 but can be completed earlier. The courses allow participants to work through the material and take exams when it fits their schedules.“These courses particularly appeal to ag retailers who can benefit by having a deeper knowledge of the details of producing a crop, making them better equipped to answer their customers’ questions, grow their customers’ business and grow their own business at the same time,” said Bruce Erickson, director for the Purdue Agronomy e-learning program.Courses offered include:Agronomy Essentials, a fundamental crops and soils course that provides a thorough understanding of agronomy and crop production practices – even for those who do not have a background in agronomy. The course follows the growing season from field preparation, crop growth and development, and pest management through to harvest, storage, and marketing the crop.Precision Agriculture, designed for those with at least a basic understanding of agronomy. The course delivers the technical science of digital agriculture to help agriculture professionals keep up with technology changes.Nutrient Management, providing a better understanding of the complexities of nutrient management, including fertilizer sources, methods of measurement and assessment, placement, timing, rate of application, and adjusting for soils and weather.Agronomy Essentials Europe, insight into crops, soils, nutrient use, and other agronomic considerations unique to European agriculture. The course is beneficial for U.S. agricultural professionals who interact with European counterparts and those who live and work in Europe.Each course is made up of modules and has over 100 videos, accompanied by readings, links to related information and a glossary. As each module test is successfully completed, the next module opens, permitting students to work ahead. This allows flexibility to meet individual work, home and life demands. Course materials are available for the duration of the course, allowing students to review as desired.Upon completion, course graduates receive a personalized certificate from Purdue Online, suitable for framing.Questions about the courses’ content can be directed to Bruce Erickson at [email protected] For all other questions, including available discounts, contact Sue Bennett at [email protected] Tuition and additional details are available at: https://ag.purdue.edu/agry/ADE/Pages/default.aspx.
