Test Rugby Results – November 22nd weekend

first_imgSunday Nov 23, 2014 Test Rugby Results – November 22nd weekend We were treated to a great day of Test match rugby yesterday, with some thrilling games and top quality tries. After leading 17-0 then trailing 20-17, Ireland beat the Wallabies in what was probably the game of the day. Argentina also picked up a great win, with victory over France in Paris.Wales looked like they were about to spring an upset over New Zealand when they led 16-15 with ten minutes left, but the All Blacks stepped up a gear to win 34-16.England and Samoa battled it out at Twickenham after a controversial week for the visitors. The scrappy match ended with a home win and a great gesture, as both sides linked arms, formed a huddle and had a quiet moment, saying a prayer and showing great solidarity (see below).Weekend results:Romania 18 – 9 Canada | Portugal 29 – 20 Namibia | Fiji 20 – 14 USA  England 28 – 9 Samoa | France 13 – 18 Argentina | Ireland 26 – 23 AustraliaItaly 6 – 22 South Africa | Scotland 37 – 12 Tonga | Wales 16 – 34 New Zealand More from each game to follow over the next few days. Do you think Ireland are now genuine Rugby World Cup contenders? Have Wales made progress, or were the All Blacks always in control? Are Argentina looking a more complete outfit?

The two story dwelling, which is one of only nine private houses designed by Kahn to come into realization, rests on a lively six acre garden.Save this picture!© Todd EberleKahn’s fusion of materials, natural Apitong wood with manmade beige concrete, is true to his geometrically simple style which allows more emphasis to be placed on lighting and environmental context. The very orthogonal, monolithic composition is punctured by an irregular pattern of windows, revealing the warm interior. As is common in many styles of architecture, the interior walls are primarily white to accentuate the richness of the wood.Designing the residence for a book lover, Kahn’s open floor plan allows natural light to penetrate every corner through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The living room features built-in bookshelves that stretch up to the ceiling of the double-height space. A staircase that is reminiscent of Japanese architecture overlooks this living room space.Save this picture!© Todd EberleKahn breaks the boundaries of the box in only two instances, both of which are chimneys that symmetrically protrude from opposite ends of the dwelling. His seemingly simple floor plan can be further analyzed into four strips which house the service spaces, dining areas, circulation, and living room.Save this picture!Courtesy of ronan beckermanWhen experienced from the outside, the windows hint to the contents of the internal double height spaces.

Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech Linkedin Linkedin Previous articleTCU fashion students adjust to a fashion industry changed by COVID-19Next articlePanhellenic sorority loses its charter Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Facebook ReddIt printThere has never been a moment too big for Katie Clark.Since her first year at TCU, the middle blocker has been the best when the lights have been the brightest. This was never more evident than on Oct. 6, 2019, when Clark put together her best performance to date to push the Frogs past Texas Tech University in Lubbock after a back-and-forth five-set battle. The then-sophomore was unstoppable, collecting 21 kills and a block to give TCU their first Big 12 victory of 2019.Clark finished her 2019 campaign as TCU’s leader in kills (289), blocks (99) and points (353.5). Her efforts earned her a spot on the All-Big 12 Second Team and All-NIVC First Team after the Frogs made it to the NIVC semifinals.Heading into her junior season, Clark’s coaches and teammates are confident that when the ball is heading her way, she is going to deliver.“Last season she [Clark] played right side, left side and ended up proving to be one of the most dominating middle blockers in our league,” TCU head coach Jill Kramer said. “We are excited for her continued development and contributions to our team this upcoming season.”In June, recognition continued to pour in for Clark. The Arlington, Texas, native gained her first career preseason award, as she was one of eight players unanimously named to the preseason All-Big 12 team. She was also the only unanimous selection who was not on the 2019 All-Big 12 First Team.Now, with the Frogs set to kick off their season against Baylor in just under two weeks, TCU will look to rely on Clark’s hard hitting and leadership as they navigate pursuing a Big 12 title amid a pandemic.“My goals for the season are to improve as myself but also help myself and the team improve together.” Katie Clark, middle blocker for TCU volleyballA four-year letter winner at Arlington High School, Clark has long been a dangerous offensive threat. The 6’3″ middle blocker finished with a school-record of 2,329 kills, to go with 745 digs and 335 blocks. An outstanding senior year saw her finishing with a spot on the 2017 Under Armour Girls High School All-America Third Team ranked as FloVolleyball’s 11th-best senior in Texas.Things did not change when Clark got to TCU. Though injury held her to just 22 matches in her first year, she dominated the time in which she did play. Reinforcing Clark’s theme of playing well in the biggest moments, eight of her 10 double-digit kill matches came during Big 12 play.Middle blocker Katie Clark goes up for a strong spike during her first season at TCU (Photo courtesy of the week of Oct. 8, 2018, Clark became the sixth player to earn Big 12 Rookie of the Week and Offensive Player of the Week in the same week. She would go on to finish third among TCU players with 194 kills and 2.37 kills per set.As a sophomore, Clark demonstrated that she would do whatever it took for her team to succeed. She played both middle blocker and right side, making her a scouting nightmare for opponents.After one of the Frogs’ recent practices, Kramer hinted at the fact that Clark could see even more diversity in her role this season.“She’s been training on the middle and on the right side for the last two or three weeks, and today, she played on the outside,” Kramer said. “She lit it up.”Kramer emphasized that having players who can play several positions is important “all the time, but especially in a situation like this.”Dating back to March, when TCU basketball saw hopes of a postseason vanish because of the coronavirus, Clark has used the uncertainty surrounding her season to motivate her.“I know if our season were to be canceled or moved or anything like that, I would be devastated,” Clark said. “It made me very humble and grateful to be able to play this season.”Clark said she used time in quarantine not only to get better at her craft but also to get acquainted with the incoming first-years.“I think it brought us together,” Clark said about time in quarantine. “We got to bring in our first-years and start to get to know them and get them comfortable with our program.”Despite the success she has seen in her first two seasons, Clark is far from done. Heading into a season filled with ambiguity, she said she believes volleyball season is just as important as any other sport’s for both TCU Athletics and the NCAA as a whole.“I think it’s just super important that every sport got to play this season,” Clark said. “Yes, others are fan-favorite sports, but each sport individually brings so many different, unique things to the table.”To be competitive this season, TCU will certainly need to lean on the game and experience of their third-year middle blocker when the going gets tough.The Frogs open their 2020 season on Friday, Oct. 2 at Baylor.

Ronald McDonald House Pasadena Remains Open for Families, Offering Comfort in Troubled Times

first_imgDuring this time, Ronald McDonald House Pasadena has remained open as a “home-away-from-home” for families whose children are receiving life-changing medical treatment at local hospitals.Families like Ana and her daughter Maury who came to Pasadena from Mexico in March for a desperately needed hip surgery, and found themselves “safer at home” at the Ronald McDonald House.“If my daughter gets sick, she can’t have her surgery. We feel safe here and are thankful the House provides us with everything we need,” says Ana.With new physical distancing and cleaning measures put into place, Ronald McDonald House Pasadena is excited to now begin accepting new families to join those staying at the House since before the “Safer at Home” order went into effect. They are working with local medical partners, including Shriners for Children Medical Center and Huntington Hospital, to ensure the health and safety of families and children.In addition, Ronald McDonald House Pasadena has recently expanded to a third house in the South Arroyo corridor. Moving their administrative offices over to the new connected property allows for additional bedroom space to open up in the historic homes on South Pasadena Avenue. Ronald McDonald House Pasadena will now be able to serve 17 families at full occupancy.“We are thrilled to be able to offer an expanded home for families to stay when they are focusing on the health and recovery of their child. Since opening our doors in 2004, we have provided more than 24,000 families with a “home-away-from-home,” says Executive Director Mara Leong-Maguinez.To showcase the new offices and provide a virtual tour inside the Ronald McDonald House, Mara Leong-Maguinez will be hosting a Virtual Open House on Wednesday, July 22nd at 5pm.Mara Leong-Maguinez, Executive Director Ronald McDonald House Pasadena“Though we are unable to invite you inside our homes in person at this time, we hope you will join us virtually for a sneak peak and virtual tour of our beautiful campus.”To receive the link to join the Virtual Open House, email [email protected] Ronald McDonald House PasadenaSince opening in 2004, Ronald McDonald House Pasadena has provided comfort, care, and support to families with critically ill children, keeping them close to their family, doctors and medical care in their time of need. Beyond walls and a roof, they provide families with a supportive and caring community during their most difficult times.

She called for extra staff and funding to address the issues.Cllr Damien Riedy (FG) said the council needed to adapt to the new weather phenomenon we are currently experiencing. He also spoke of a particular pothole which had been in situ so long in County Limerick that it had almost become an attraction.“You can see it on Google Maps. It’s a landmark now,” said Cllr Riedy.“There are potholes that are too bad to fix. These roads need to be reconstructed. This is very serious and its time for a new directive,” he added.Cllr Noel Gleeson (FF) also proposed the hiring of more outdoor staff. “A stitch in time saves nine,” he said.According to Cllr Patrick Fitzgerald (IND), the local roads office in Croom had “disintegrated” in the last number of years going from a healthy staff of 45 to just four today.“Staffing is the most important issue and there has to be a major increase in this area,” he demanded.Cllr Leo Walsh (FG) suggested that Council wait  “until the dust settles” to assess the damage caused to roads by recent flooding.“Two years ago during the big freeze we ran out of salt for the roads. Now we have sheds full of the stuff. We need to learn from that,” he said.Director of transportation Paul Crowe agreed that more staff and funding was needed. “They are inextricably linked. They go hand in hand,” he explained.He went on to tell councillors that it would be a number of weeks before the local authority could assess the full extent of the damage caused by the floods and storms.

The Division Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar noted that if the bidder was not found to be technically qualified, his financial bid could not have been looked into at all. The order has come in a writ petition seeking setting aside of the e-auction process undertaken by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation to allocate land for Multilevel Authorised Parking in South Delhi. On the date of submitting the bid, the Petitioner had informed the Respondent that since his regular staff – which undertakes the task of uploading tender documents was not available due to restrictions of movement during lockdown, he had engaged services of inexperienced persons to upload the set of documents and the documents, as uploaded, were not correct documents. The Petitioner further claimed that he subsequently submitted the correct documents and asked for the processing of the same. However, he did not receive any communication from the Respondent. Appearing for the Petitioner, Senior Advocate Kirti Uppal submitted that the conduct of the respondent is mala fide in as much, as, though the technical bids were opened on 28.04.2020, he was communicated rejection of his technical bid only on 12.05.2020, i.e. the day prior to opening of the financial bid on 13.05.2020. Ms Richa Dhawan, who appeared for the SDMC, argued that offer letters have already been issued to the successful bidders, and three months advance payments have been received from the successful bidders. Ms Dhawan further submitted that, admittedly, the Petitioner had not uploaded the correct documents and, therefore, the Respondent was justified in rejecting the technical bid of the Petitioner. It was further argued by Ms Dhawan that once the bidding process is over, it is not open to the Petitioner to seek to interfere with the same by offering higher rates. While holding that the bidding process in the present matter cannot be interfered with, as the Petitioner did not submit and upload the requisite documents, which he was required to, along with his bid in response to the tender in question. The court observed that: ‘Such like submissions – if accepted, would hit at the very foundation of the bidding process, and would make them susceptible every now and then. The same would erode the sanctity of the bidding process itself, and make it uncertain for the bidders to participate in any bidding process. This would seriously undermine public interest.’Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Inspirational Boston Marathon dad Dick Hoyt dies at 80 after 4 decades of races with his son

first_imgIlya S. Savenok/Getty Images for WBCPBy HALEY YAMADA and ERIC NOLL, ABC News(BOSTON) — For years, father Dick Hoyt ran the Boston Marathon with his son, Rick Hoyt, in an effort to inspire and motivate other children with special needs.Dick Hoyt died Wednesday at 80 years old, but that inspiration will carry on.In 1962, Rick Hoyt was born paralyzed and could not walk or talk. Dick and Judy Hoyt said that doctors told them to consider putting their newborn in a special care facility.Dick Hoyt made a point to prove those doctors wrong.“We cried, but we talked and we said, “No, we’re not going to put Rick away. We’re gonna bring Rick home and bring him up like any other child,’” Dick Hoyt told ABC News in a past interview.In 1977, Rick Hoyt asked his father if they could run in a charity race together. Dick Hoyt would push his son’s custom wheelchair the entire way, crossing the finish line together.“When we got home that night, Rick wrote on his computer, ‘Dad, when I’m running, it feels like my disability disappears.’ So that was a very powerful message to me,” said Hoyt, who began training immediately.The pair would go on to run the Boston Marathon 32 times and more than 1,000 races in all.“I’m amazed, yes, at what I’m doing. I’m running faster now when I’m 60 years old than when I was 18 years old,” Hoyt said in 2005.On Thursday, Hoyt’s family announced he died overnight at the age of 80. Now remembered as a great athlete and father, Hoyt once shared his secret to success.“I think that Rick has, you know, really made me fulfill my life as a father,” he said. “What’s the secret? Just having a great son, I guess.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
