Fantastic try saving chase & tackle by Tim Bateman

first_imgTuesday Aug 19, 2008 Fantastic try saving chase & tackle by Tim Bateman Canterbury center Tim Bateman produced a pretty special moment against Auckland this weekend in the Air New Zealand Cup, as we saw him chase down Jamie Helleur after an intercept looked destined to result in 7 points.While still a relatively new face to fans around the world, since making his senior debut in 2006, young Tim Bateman has continued to impress whenever he’s worn the famous red and black jersey.His pedigree speaks for itself, as he hails from the esteemed Christchurch Boys High School, following in the footsteps of the likes of Andrew Mehrtens, Aaron Mauger, Daniel Carter, Scott Hamilton and Stephen Brett. His two years playing for the u19’s has also held him in good stead.While Bateman isn’t the biggest center in world rugby, he seemingly makes up for the lack of size with his darting runs and grim determination on defense, as we saw in Christchurch on Saturday.This 75-metre chase to haul down opposition fullback Helleur centimetres from the line was highly impressive, and as the commentators reiterated, will go a long way to earning Bateman the respect and recognition he’ll need to keep rising in New Zealand rugby.With the home side only 5-0 up at that stage, a converted try could have easily shifted the momentum in Auckland’s favour. Batemans chase had a great effect on the whole side morale wise, with their overall effort being lifted for the rest of the match, as front rower Wyatt Crockett testified to.“When they did make half-breaks, we scrambled quite well and that effort from Timmy … I was probably about 90 metres away, hoping he was going to get him. You look up and you see that and it was just a magnificent effort and it lifts everyone. It was massive, psychologically.”Auckland didn’t come close to crossing again in the match, with the the home side Canterbury coming out convincing victors 34-3 in the end.

Imagine a site you might picture, when letting your mind wonder back in time: damp soil forms a soft ground, catching your footsteps, ancient, weather-beaten stairs, that have been used in earlier times as an earthen path, a lovely old retaining wall and carefully cherished plants. When we first set foot on this old soil in the city of Myoren-ji, we not merely got interested by this lush site, but rather fascinated by its’ overwhelming beauty, that laid in every single FIBRE.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaSuch a feeling should never be seen as something disturbing, when it comes to architecture, moreover should it be as such occupied by the grounds’ fascination. To put it in other words: to build an architecture does not merelz mean to “put something on the ground”, but rather to come closer to the grounds’ scrupulous dealing.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaIf you let your finger run across the complete surface of Celluloid Jam, no matter where you would start, you could a) go in one round from exterior to interior and back to your starting point without taking a break. b) touch every point on the exterior as well as on the interior and returning back to your starting point without lifting your finger once.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaOn one hand there is the surface, which results as a flow of the architecture from outer wall to roof to flooring to interior wall to ceiling and can therefore be seen as a seamless structure. While on the other hand the shape itself is being created by cutting, opening and bending the so called Moebius strip (which is formed topologically by twisting and turning a belt in shape of the number 8).Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaYou could feel the longing for the ground to become one with the architecture. So in order to create this connection of exterior rendering, plants, rooms, retaining wall, terrace, ancient stairs, patio and balcony with geometric help, the two components (architecture and nature) have been slowly combined to one united mass by applying adhesion.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaTo underline this impression, Celluloid Jams complete surface has been realized without visible junctures. The wooden construction is revetted by fibre restrained plastic to create one unique surface of both interior and exterior and furthermore to form one flowing shell, in which the punctual static loads are being reduced, while the static loads can be evenly spread. So the architectural shell approaches its inspiring natural example: the egg shell. Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaOn top of the soil, where the Moebius strip touches the ground, the border between nature and the architecture dissolves into nothing, just like melting plastic. This separation is merely seen and projected by the eye.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessInfographic: Saving the Earth with Sustainable CitiesInfographicsVideo: ‘The Competition’ TrailerArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/364122/celluloid-jam-n-maeda-atelier Clipboard Japan Celluloid Jam / N MAEDA ATELIER ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/364122/celluloid-jam-n-maeda-atelier Clipboard Save this picture!© Toshihiro Sobajima+ 28 Share CopyAbout this officeN MAEDA ATELIEROfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNishi wardHousesJapanPublished on April 27, 2013Cite: “Celluloid Jam / N MAEDA ATELIER” 27 Apr 2013.

White House Homestay Cluster Project is located in Xinji Village, Mayong Town, Dongguan, a typical rural area in the suburbs of the Pearl River Delta.

Therefore, in the design of the core group of the whole community, we use the adjacent four rented houses to break the wall between the houses and raise a public space – the yard of the four houses, the auxiliary space, the aisle space, the terrace Spaces and other public spaces that originally belonged to the interior of a single house are all brought together to sort out a public space system that can adapt to new usage functions, so as to solve the problem of lack of public activity space in the entire white house and homestay community activity center.Save this picture!white house on the top of the roof.

Due to the existence of this rooftop public space, the local villagers and foreign guests have more intersections, and the exchanges between them are more harmonious.

She added she is grateful that everyone showed great commitment and great support in the fight against the Alzheimer’s disease.“I’m amazed that this many people and the long line of volunteers that we have at 6 o’clock this morning,” Hocker said.One volunteer, Chris Lokey, was recognized as the top individual fundraiser at the event and was awarded the title of honorary chair. Lokey raised more than $8,000 for the walk.He said he was inspired to raise the money on behalf of his wife Judith Jaunters and because he felt the need to give back to the Alzheimer’s Association.“Coming to the Alzheimer’s Association gave us that education and support that we needed to learn how to take care of Judith,” Chris said. “We went to their support group. They were valuable to us.”The walk was also personal for Preeya Brookins, whose mother and uncle were both diagnosed with  Alzheimer’s.“We feel like the genes may be genetic in the family,” Brookins said. “All of us are affected.”Brookins said her whole family wanted to participate in the walk, despite the weather, because it provides hope and she has faith there is a cure somewhere that someone has not found.“The whole family is affected and it’s very sad disease.” Brookins said “To me, being out in this rain has not affected me one bit.

Husband of Limerick Euromillions winner Dolores McNamara dies surrounded by family…

first_imgLimerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Adrian McNamara (60s), husband of Limerick Euromillions winner Dolores McNamara, who passed away this morning following an illness.Photo source: R.I.P.ieTHE husband of Limerick euromillions winner Dolores McNamara has died.Adrian McNamara, who was in his late 60s and a bricklayer by trade, passed away following an illness this morning.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He died peacefully and surrounded by his family, at his son Lee’s home in Killaloe, Co Clare.Mr McNamara along with his wife, who won a €115m Euromillions jackpot in 2005 after purchasing a €2 Quickpick ticket, had lived together at Lough Derg Hall, a vast property and estate in Ogonnolloe, overlooking Lough Derg.Ms McNamara purchased the 10,000 sq ft hill-top property for €1.75m in 2005, after it had reportedly attracted the interest of Hollywood actor Robert De Niro.The lavish country manor, boasting amazing lakeside views, at the end of a half-mile long private entrance, fronted by electric gates and an eight-foot high wall, is set on 38 acres, including a coach house.The high-end property is a far cry from the modest 1,200 sq ft semi-detached family home Adrian and Dolores raised their six children in on the Patrick’s Road, Limerick.Friends said the couple’s windfall however, did not change them, particularly Mr McNamara who, besides investing in a number of racehorses and a Spanish holiday home, had maintained a low profile, a source said.The couple had owned a holiday home in Turkey prior to Ms McNamara’s massive lottery win which occurred when Mr McNamara was recovering from heart bypass surgery.“Adrian was a lovely fella, he was always very decent, and he didn’t let the money change him,” said an informed source.“He had a few horses and he lived in a big house in Killaloe but he kept away from the limelight. He was always a hard worker,” they added.In the first few years after Ms McNamara’s jackpot win, the couple had to invest in 24/7 security at their home, because of concerns of potential kidnap plots against them and members of their family.Dolores’s brother-in-law, Martin Anthony McCarthy, 50s, tragically died in a fire at his home in Limerick city in 2009.Adrian McNamara is survived by his wife Dolores; the couples three sons Gary, Dean, Lee, and three daughters Dawn, Kim and Kevanne, and nine grandchildren.Mr McNamara’s funeral will be held in accordance with current Government COVID-19 restrictions and HSE guidelines on public gatherings, at St Flannan’s Church, Killaloe, at 12 midday, on Saturday, April 24.Mr McNamara will be laid to rest afterwards near the shores of Lough Derg at New Cemetery, Ogonnelloe.

If there is, we’re ready for Feeding Texas to help us go out to those in need.”The West Texas Food Bank had previously gone out to the southeast coast of Texas to help during Hurricane Harvey last August. They went to cities up and down the coast from Houston to Corpus Christi, working with sister food banks and volunteers to provide thousands of pounds to hurricane victims.“If we said we needed something, we had tons of that product come in,” Campbell said. “We had tons of volunteers. We had people donate trucks, fuel, it was really an amazing thing to watch.”West Texas Food Bank was able to acquire the trailer with the help of Occidental Petroleum, who made a donation of more than $50,000 for the trailer. By admin – May 24, 2018 The West Texas Food Bank recently unveiled a new trailer that will help them to provide disaster relief and food to afflicted areas.West Texas Food Bank Executive Director Libby Campbell said the trailer would be able to be used during situations such as hurricanes or fires to help distribute supplies and food to first responders and volunteers.When it isn’t responding to disasters, Campbell said the trailer would be used in the community, going out to the 19 counties supported by West Texas Food Bank to provide food to the community as a mobile pantry unit.“A lot of our little communities are seeing some stress and some of our smaller pantries don’t have the capacity to hold as much,” Campell said. “This is something that we can do to pull alongside those agencies and help distribute food to our rural community.” 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School Facebook Previous articleDAILY OIL PRICE: May 24Next articleVanderford scholarship recipient announced admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Twitter Exterior view of the West TexasFood Bank disaster relief trailer.
