Latest injury updates not exactly what Ireland fans wanted to hear ahead of crucial All Blacks clash

first_imgMonday Nov 12, 2018 Latest injury updates not exactly what Ireland fans wanted to hear ahead of crucial All Blacks clash Ireland scrumhalf Conor Murray will not be available for the upcoming Test against the All Blacks in Dublin on Saturday. The Munster and British and Irish Lions star has not recovered from the neck injury he picked up during the Test series against the Wallabies in June.ADVERTISEMENTRobbie Henshaw will also be unavailable due to a hamstring issue that will rule him out of the remainder of the Guinness Series.Ireland coach Joe Schmidt was hopeful that Murray would be available for the crunch match against the number one team in the world, but unfortunately it won’t be possible.“Murray is accelerating his recovery but will not join the squad,” an Ireland squad update explained today.Both Luke McGrath and Keiran Marmion scored tries in Ireland’s 28-17 win over Argentina, so coach Schmidt will make a call later this week on who will start against New Zealand. Marmion picked up a knock, but should be okay to play.Flanker Sean O’Brien meanwhile broke his right arm in the first half, but is hoping for a quick recovery and to be available as soon as next year’s Six Nations.“I think I described him as a stubborn man and I think that ability to bounce back, that resilience that he has, would still give him a chance of getting back in time for toward the end of the year and then into the Six Nations,” said Schmidt.ADVERTISEMENTIreland scored three tries to one against Argentina in what some have called a laboured performance.“There’s a lot to work on and we know next week against New Zealand is a big step up and we know we are going to have to be a lot better,” said captain Rory Best.Catch up on match highlights belowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

This three-story retreat house is located in Yeoju, a suburban city of Seoul, and was designed for a successful scientist and CEO of the famed company. The tract of land is large, but had a comparatively small buildable area. The site sits on a hillside, which is surrounded by nature and beautiful scenery. Accordingly, the owner particularly sought to have a more open and spacious living/kitchen area. The required program zones are set to being more private as you go farther upward:  a family interactive zone on the 1st floor, with the private zones on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The design was initiated by juxtaposing all living spaces linearly in an east-west direction to obtain a good amount of sunlight and the best views for every individual space.Save this picture!© Jeongkyu LeeSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Jeongkyu LeeIn response to the owner’s requests, the design was developed with a geometrical composition by utilizing two-dimensional walls and three-dimensional volumes to interact, to accommodate, and to be flexible; yet ambiguous spaces blur demarcated boundaries of each space and to obtain a more spacious living environment. On the first floor, the outdoor decks are placed on the north and south sides of the living/dining room area for more spacious and interactive space.  An interesting concept was introduced during the process.  Instead of placing a garage space on the side of a marginal space with a blocked view, the garage space was intervened into two discrete zones: the living room area and the guest bedroom suite.Save this picture!© Jeongkyu LeeThus, the garage space became one of the dominant spaces and corridors to experience the view of the river.  Sliding and pivot doors to enclose the garage can be opened for the fantastic vista when the area functions as a porch and garden. The interplay of immaterial lines created sectors and walls to distinguish space.  These were shifted from their original position and helped to redefine the living spaces. Intersecting walls of the axis were extended beyond their boundaries.  The walls are punctured to blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor space for the extensive view, with an extended and active living room area.  These continuous lines of walls extend to the other side and create a private garden for the family.Save this picture!© Jeongkyu LeeSave this picture!North elevationSave this picture!East elevationSave this picture!© Dongwook JungThese fundamental architecture languages are built up in vertical layers and translate to satisfy functional use:  The axis of walls on the 1st floor became datum lines to enclose and create the volumes for private spaces on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The volumes of space are stacked on top of extended walls. On the 2nd floor, two bedrooms, the family room, and the master bedroom are designed with individual private terraces. As with the 1st-floor living room area, scenes of nature were captured and projected into individual bedrooms to enhance the advantage of the site location. The owner’s private library and spa were designed on the 3rd floor, with natural light drawn on curved spaces to designate a quiet and completely private space for contemplation and tranquility.Save this picture!© Dongwook JungExterior materials were clad with a special form of artificial lime stones (Agglotech architectural terrazzo) that are protected against pollution and sunlight. Materials for extended walls on the 1st floor are in the same material but different color and texture. The use of exterior materials was minimized to emphasize the spatial elements. For maintenance cost savings, a sustainable design was adapted not only by the house having a south-facing and outdoor grass roof, but also by using geothermal energy.  Save this picture!© Dongwook JungProject gallerySee allShow lessYongjiang Experimental School / DC AllianceSelected ProjectsOOZOORO1216 / EUS+ARCHITECTSSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeYKH AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYeoju-gunOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on March 11, 2020Cite: “Yeoju Residence / YKH Associates” 10 Mar 2020.

Study Predicts Next Global Dust Storm on Mars

first_img More Cool Stuff Make a comment Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe First Heatwave Expected Next Week Two 2001 images from the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor orbiter show a dramatic change in the planet’s appearance when haze raised by dust-storm activity in the south became globally distributed. The images were taken about a month apart. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSSGlobal dust storms on Mars could soon become more predictable — which would be a boon for future astronauts there — if the next one follows a pattern suggested by those in the past.A published prediction, based on this pattern, points to Mars experiencing a global dust storm in the next few months. “Mars will reach the midpoint of its current dust storm season on October 29th of this year. Based on the historical pattern we found, we believe it is very likely that a global dust storm will begin within a few weeks or months of this date,” James Shirley, a planetary scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California.Local dust storms occur frequently on Mars. These localized storms occasionally grow or coalesce to form regional systems, particularly during the southern spring and summer, when Mars is closest to the sun. On rare occasions, regional storms produce a dust haze that encircles the planet and obscures surface features beneath. A few of these events may become truly global storms, such as one in 1971 that greeted the first spacecraft to orbit Mars, NASA’s Mariner 9. Discerning a predictable pattern for which Martian years will have planet-encircling or global storms has been a challenge.The most recent Martian global dust storm occurred in 2007, significantly diminishing solar power available to two NASA Mars rovers then active halfway around the planet from each other — Spirit and Opportunity.“The global dust storm in 2007 was the first major threat to the rovers since landing,” said JPL’s John Callas, project manager for Spirit and Opportunity. “We had to take special measures to enable their survival for several weeks with little sunlight to keep them powered. Each rover powered up only a few minutes each day, enough to warm them up, then shut down to the next day without even communicating with Earth. For many days during the worst of the storm, the rovers were completely on their own.”Dust storms also will present challenges for astronauts on the Red Planet. Although the force of the wind on Mars is not as strong as portrayed in an early scene in the movie “The Martian,” dust lofted during storms could affect electronics and health, as well as the availability of solar energy.The Red Planet has been observed shrouded by planet-encircling dust nine times since 1924, with the five most recent planetary storms detected in 1977, 1982, 1994, 2001 and 2007. The actual number of such events is no doubt higher. In some of the years when no orbiter was observing Mars up close, Mars was poorly positioned for Earth-based telescopic detection of dust storms during the Martian season when global storms are most likely.Shirley’s 2015 paper in the journal Icarus reported finding a pattern in the occurrence of global dust storms when he factored in a variable linked to the orbital motion of Mars. Other planets have an effect on the momentum of Mars as it orbits the solar system’s center of gravity. This effect on momentum varies with a cycle time of about 2.2 years, which is longer than the time it takes Mars to complete each orbit: about 1.9 years. The relationship between these two cycles changes constantly. Shirley found that global dust storms tend to occur when the momentum is increasing during the first part of the dust storm season. None of the global dust storms in the historic record occurred in years when the momentum was decreasing during the first part of the dust storm season.The paper noted that conditions in the current Mars dust-storm season are very similar to those for a number of years when global storms occurred in the past. Observations of the Martian atmosphere over the next few months will test whether the forecast is correct.Researchers at Malin Space Science Systems, in San Diego, post Mars weather reports each week based on observations using the Mars Color Imager camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. A series of local southern-hemisphere storms in late August grew into a major regional dust storm in early September, but subsided by mid-month without becoming global. Researchers will be closely watching to see what happens with the next regional storm. 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Your email address will not be published.

The letter requests the AG to use his good offices with the State. “Sir, as the leader of our Bar, we sincerely and humbly request you to use your good offices and take this cause of the Bar with the Maharashtra Government. We are sure that your intervention will lead to a positive outcome in this regard.” The letter states that the Bombay High Court has been functioning ‘tirelessly’ even during the pandemic and from November the court has begun physical hearings, as well. The letter adds, with a surge in the number of Covid-19 cases in the city, it has become important to protect all stakeholders that actively participate in the functioning of the Bombay HC. “Administration of Justice is an essential constitutional function and the stakeholders involved in the process who expose themselves to the risk of the pandemic are clearly frontline workers along with others who are helping in the functioning of the various other agencies of the government,” the letter states.

Previous Article Next Article Employers could face prosecution if they do not have clear safety policiesprotecting staff who drive during office hours, following the release of toughHealth & Safety Commission proposals last week. As part of a drive to apply more rigorously health and safety laws toon-the-road work activities, the HSC wants to introduce an accident report formthat enables the police to assess the workload of commercial drivers. If the reported information shows that the accident was caused by dangerousdriving due to onerous employer demands, then the organisation could faceprosecution. It will also enable the HSC to check on the training andsupervision of the drivers involved. The HSC report, Tomorrow’s Roads – Safer for Everyone, makes 18 proposalsand is likely to be a key part of the Government’s road safety programme duefor implementation in 2003. Chris Howell, chief executive of risk audit company Risk Answers, said,”A big issue is the potential crossover between the contract of employmentand health and safety. “HR will have to look a lot more closely at what the contract ofemployment means and relate it to any changes in the personal circumstances ofthe employee, for example, if a person doing high mileage becomes pregnant, orhas a long-standing back condition.” The company estimates that UK businesses lose £2.7bn a year as a consequenceof at-work road accidents. Richard Dykes, chairman of the HSC’s work-relatedroad safety task group, said, “Research shows that between a third andhalf of all road traffic incidents involve someone at work. “An employer who has employees on the road should apply the same riskmanagement best practice as they would in all other aspect of theworkplace.” Phil Boucher Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
