When watching the spring bubbling up and running into the Itaipava site, we had the idea of damming it and creating a natural pool with running water, but with a cement bottom, good for swimming. When built, it resembled a lake. Above it, there is a glass annex where you can enjoy the landscape. With chilling lounge, steam room, gym, bike repair room and a jacuzzi. The celling is very high and the roof overhang resembles an old-fashioned small town railway station: there are no pillars supporting the overhang, only those walls mounted brackets.Save this picture!© MCA EstudioSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© MCA EstudioThe house is further up the hill, and from it, you can see the depth of the property, the garden, the river and the lake. It´s something special, a huge house on one level. We created a set of roofs to add fluidity to the design, a sprawling house, connected by a raised deck that extends towards the river.Save this picture!© MCA EstudioAt the very end, there is an open-air fireplace. Inside, a home theatre is integrated into the living room, arranged around a fireplace finished in a slate strips.

Terra Madre – Mother Earth day

first_imgLinkedin Advertisement Email THIS week, Jennifer Allen guest writes on Food For Thought to tell us about Terra Madre and its connection to Slow Food.“Terra Madre, or Mother Earth day, falls on December 10. But what’s it all about? Terra Madre is one very significant aspect of the Slow Food movement, consisting of a broad, global network of food producers, cooks and experts, who share a passion for preserving food diversity in all its shapes and sizes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up We are becoming increasingly reliant on an increasingly diminished array of foods, with an ever lengthening chain between us and whoever produced those foods. Obviously, from a gastronomic viewpoint, being restricted to a tiny window of generic foods is bland and not very inspiring. But, on a more profound level, lack of diversity can have serious economic and environmental consequences. In the natural environment, if one food fails, there are so many others to choose from, it doesn’t pose any significant risk. If, however, a whole community relies on growing one food, failure of that one crop can spell disaster. Likewise, the more alienated from our food supply we become as consumers, the less control we have over how that food is created and the consequences if our supply is cut off.Rather than lamenting this potentially negative scenario though, let’s shine a light on the wonderful richness of foods we have on our doorstep.A few years ago, two students from the Organic College in Dromcollogher were out strolling and foraging in Springfield, co Limerick, when they came across an apple tree. This tree, with its distinctive very large yellow apples, with some fruits weighing over a pound, was unfamiliar to either of them. They investigated the puckered, ribbed apples further, only to find no record existed of such a variety. A new star was born! Appletown Wonder is now on the list of native apple varieties at Seedsavers in Scariff, along with about 140 others. Add to that 600 heirloom varieties of vegetables, 48 heirloom grain varieties and an heirloom potato collection and you have a stunning testament to the diversity and abundance of wonderful foods available on our doorstep,if we take the time to look after them. And Seedsavers has certainly done that. Founded by Anita Hayes in 1991, Seedsavers main aim is the conservation of Irelands very special and threatened plant genetic resources. Their focus is on the preservation of heritage varieties, suitable for Irelands growing conditions. This is a key Slow Food principle, where local is king. Combine that with the skill and knowledge in cultivating these precious crops which has come from the years of patience and hardwork of Seedsavers staff and volunteers and you see how Seedsavers is the living embodiment of what Terra Madre is all about. Having the flavourful, resilient seeds will only get you so far, after all, without the ability to grow them well. Not alone does Seedsavers provide manuals on the art of seedsaving, it also holds workshops on organic gardening, orchard creation, cheesemaking and beekeeping, skills which have stood us well since the earliest monks embraced them, yet seem outrageously foreign to a generation of die-hard supermarket shoppers.So how can you play your part for Terra Madre? Well, it doesn’t have to involve foraging for heritage varieties of apples, unless you want to, of course. You could support a local grower who produces heritage varieties of food. You could leave the mangetout from Kenya on the shelf and ask your supermarket to provide locally produced vegetables instead. Or you could write to your local TD, asking them to support small scale producers and growers in getting a fair price for their work. Or maybe you want to take a community group on a trip to Scariff to have a look at the amazing work of Seedsavers firsthand. Who knows, some of you might be inspired to join up and get your own heritage seeds to plant. Our future heritage starts now. What would you like it to be?” NewsTerra Madre – Mother Earth dayBy admin – December 10, 2009 649 WhatsAppcenter_img Print Twitter Facebook Previous articleLimerick accounts for eight creditors meetings in Q3Next articleWhat’s new in the wine world this week adminlast_img read more

Vroum Vroum Mag tests staying power at Ascot

first_img “She won over two and three-quarter miles at Limerick last March and that was over fences – hopefully she will get the trip. I think it’s probably her toughest test as I think Aurore D’Estruval is a very good mare, while The Govaness is also in there. “A lot of these mares’ races see the same horses take each other on, so I think it will be a decent test for her and a chance to see if she gets the trip. It’s a race that suits.” Mullins said: “It will give us a better indication (of Cheltenham target), if she handles this well it will open up the other options for her. ” Having won the past two renewals with Highland Retreat in 2014 and Bitofapuzzle 12 months ago, trainer Harry Fry’s chances of completing a hat-trick rest with course scorer Desert Queen. He said: “She ran very well last time under top weight, giving lots of weight to the winner (Cannon Fodder), who is also in the race on Saturday. She meets her off level weights this time. “The Irish horse Vroum Vroum Mag is an unknown quantity. It will be a strong pace and I’d be delighted if she could follow in the footsteps of Bitofapuzzle, who won it last year, and Highland Retreat won it the year before.” Rebecca Curtis believes Aurore D’Estruval will show a marked improvement on her run in the Relkeel Hurdle on New Year’s Day, with the step up in trip expected to be in her favour. Curtis said: “I’m looking forward to trying her over this trip as she does stay and gallop well. I think three miles might suit her. “She’ll definitely be aimed at the Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham, but she might be able to go up in trip later on in the spring if she proves it suits her on Saturday. “I was really pleased with her run in Relkeel as she was wrong at the weights and was taking on the boys. She should improve a lot for that run, so we’ll see what she can do this weekend.” The seven-year-old will race beyond two and three-quarter miles for the first time when tackling the Grade Two affair over an extended two-mile-seven-furlongs as she bids to make it eight straight victories since joining Willie Mullins. Joe Chambers, racing manager to owner Rich Ricci, said: “We are sticking to mares’ company and this gives us a chance to try her at three miles. Depending how she goes she will either have less or more options in March. Connections of Vroum Vroum Mag are hopeful she can take a step up in trip in her stride when making her eagerly-awaited first start in Britain in the OLBG.com Mares’ Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast November 6, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Rain is moving through a little faster than anticipated today! This is not a bad thing, as faster movement promoted less chances of heavy rains sitting in one place for too long. In fact, the heavier rains will likely be done before midday and we should see just a lot of clouds and lingering light moisture through the the rest of the afternoon in Ohio. Now, we are going to leave rain totals alone for the entire event, with half to 1.5” rain totals going back to moisture initiation last night. But through the daytime hours, we likely only see an additional few hundredths to a few tenths statewide. The heaviest action remains over the southern parts of the state, and lighter amounts are up north. 80% of the state will be in the above mentioned range, while the remaining 20% will see up to half an inch total (again, including last nights action). We start to dry down tonight and see dry weather for tomorrow and Thursday too. We are a little cooler, but still stay near normal for this time of year. Rain is back for overnight Thursday night through Friday. Moisture totals are not that impressive, a few hundredths to .4” over 70% of the state. However, temps go near to below freezing overnight Thursday night and do not recover Friday morning through much of the day. This may allow for some wet snow to mix in with our precipitation, even though it is light. Dry for the weekend. However, we are also looking for a rather chilly weekend. Temps will be well below normal, and there is potential for Saturday to see daytime highs stay below freezing over the northern quarter to third of the state, but the sharp cool-down will be felt statewide.  Sunday can be sub-40 for highs over most of the state. This will be our first taste of a significant chill. The map at right shows Saturday’s expected high temperatures for Ohio. We stay dry Monday through Wednesday of next week. We likely see clouds from time to time, but no new precipitation. Thursday, we see Clouds build and then have a chance of scattered showers north of US 30 in the morning. The rain threat extends to statewide by mid to late afternoon and goes through the overnight. We can see from .05”-.25” with 70% coverage. For the extended period, we are dry for next Friday and Saturday. But, then we move into another wet, active period for Sunday the 18th through Wednesday the 21st. We see at least 2 waves of moisture moving over the eastern corn belt in that time, perhaps more. Combined rain totals will be from .25”-.75” with the heaviest rain chances in the southern half of the state. Harvest windows lasting more than a couple to few days will be hard to come by, since we are going to need longer lengths of time in-between precipitation events to see the ground get fit. The best window we have comes this weekend through midweek next week.last_img read more

Plastic bags, LED bulb removed from bulls stomach

first_imgThanjavur (TN), Apr 20 (PTI) Veterinarians at an institute here have removed 38.4 kg of plastic bags and a LED bulb from the stomach of a bull.

On examination it was diagnosed that the animal has acute ruminal impaction following which a surgery was performed. The doctors retrieved 38.4 kg of polythene bags, a LED bulb, safety pins, nails and coir rope from the rumen of the animal after the surgery, TVCC sources said. PTI COR RC RBSlast_img

When a terrace tune goes viral: the hunt for the source of the September chant

first_img Pinterest Share on Messenger Read more Share on Facebook It is inescapable, the background accompaniment to every Premier League highlight. The words to the chant go “woooooaaahhh [name of club cult favourite], wooaaahhh [skill unique to player] woooooaaahhh he never gives the ball awayyyyyy 1-2-3-4” and then repeats itself. Yes, you do know it. Yes, it has already become a little bit grating.Set to the Earth, Wind & Fire song of the same name, the September chant has yet to acquire the full brain‑numbing ubiquity the Beach Boys’ Sloop John B attained in recent years, but it is definitely on its way. Watford sing it about Abdoulaye Doucouré, Chelsea about Tiémoué Bakayoko, Aston Vllla about both John Terry and James Chester. At this point, the only hope of your club escaping the craze is by ensuring you have a team full of players unable to keep possession. Everton aside, that means everyone’s at risk. Share on Pinterest Twitter Will Grigg receives as many votes as Paul Pogba in search for Europe’s best player A whole year before it appeared anywhere else, however, the September chant was being sung by fans of Newcastle United. Various YouTube videos confirmed the Toon faithful were using the tune and the “never give the ball away” lyric to celebrate the Frenchman Chancel Mbemba in the autumn of 2015. In fact, by the end of last season, they had already dropped it in favour of incorporating Mbemba’s name into a chant about Rafa Benítez to the tune of Ritchie Valens’s La Bamba.Other bulletin board posts helped narrow the likely source. They mentioned hearing the song in the Gallowgate corner and this made sense. Over recent seasons those in that particular part of the former Gallowgate End (whose official name is Strawberry Corner) have taken it upon themselves to try to improve the atmosphere at St James’ Park. Fan groups such as the Gallowgate Flags and Wor Hyem 1892 have sought to bring more colour into the ground and more noise.On Twitter Wor Hyem 1892 told me they were confident they knew the man who had kicked September off. The man was not seeking publicity, but Wor Hyem 1892 assured me he sat in the Gallowgate corner and was a constant source of new music, always making up chants in the car on long away journeys. His latest, about Jamal Lascelles, is set to the “la la la la lala lala” bit of Iggy Pop’s The Passenger.Someone suggested the song was first sung on 7 November 2015 when Newcastle were away at Bournemouth. Wor Hyem concurred. That was the game the man, who was now referred to as Jack, had first sung the song. But there was more information too, something that turned the story on its head. Jack had prepared the chant, observing that Mbemba was Newcastle’s best defender and that he never gave the ball away. He had travelled to the Vitality Stadium ready to belt it out for the first time (the same ground where, two years later, I would first hear the chant myself). But when the game kicked off, Jack was stunned almost to silence. Somebody else was belting out his chant, before he had even had a chance to sing it.They say success has many fathers and perhaps the September chant was just too good to have been invented by one person. Another, more mundane, explanation is that Jack’s idea had leaked. A Reddit user called Sholaaaa posted the lyrics to the song under ‘Toon chants’ on 15 September. The list of football songs that have been written up online but never sung in a crowd is endless, but this one may have been an exception. Either way Jack can be proud; his song had the x factor. Listen out for it at a ground near you. Topics featurescenter_img Football Share on LinkedIn Share on Twitter Chelsea’s Tiémoué Bakayoko is among the players for whom the September chant is sung. Photograph: Ryan Browne/BPI/Rex/Shutterstock Reuse this content Facebook Share on WhatsApp What makes a chant spread like a raspy cold? And is it possible to trace the tune back to a single source? Any attempt at answering the former question would have to acknowledge that creating a terrace hit requires a certain kind of magic. Will Grigg’s on Fire, for example, became the chant of 2016 thanks to the serendipity of events; created to celebrate the unlikely success of an unheralded striker (in League One with Wigan Athletic), it became synonymous with the unlikely success of an unheralded nation (Northern Ireland at the European Championship), which only boosted the signal. At the other end of the scale, Put Your Hands Up for Brighton, the song played to gee up the crowd at the Amex before kick-off is now a club anthem largely because Fatboy Slim recorded it and he is the club’s most famous fan.Some chants, then, make it big because of circumstance. More commonly, though, they succeed because they conform to general rules. “It has to be short, repetitive and simple if it’s going to go viral,” says Tim Marshall, the broadcaster and author of a history of football chants, Dirty Northern Bastards. “Seven Nation Army being the classic example. York City’s short-lived and very localised classic, about midfielder Onome Sodje, set to the complex subtlety of Eleanor Rigby is very, very unusual.”A study reported by the Smithsonian museum in Washington further narrowed the traits of a successful chant. They looked at Seven Nation Army, the White Stripes song adapted first in the Netherlands then Germany then everywhere. It has only seven notes, the report observed, making it especially simple to remember. It also has melody that operates in a step-wise motion – ie only going up or down by a single note in a scale – another quality shared by many successful chants.The September chant, then, might be said to be atypical. It has four lines, which don’t run in a step-wise motion and, in the final line, require the singer to practice a small amount of glissando as they shift between notes mid-breath. It is also slightly mystifying as to why this song at this point in time, some 46 years after its release, should be so wholeheartedly embraced by supporters. (Does it say something about the average age of a season ticket holder?) Another unusual aspect works in its favour: the song celebrates those players who are generally forgotten, or perhaps even mocked.The genesis of the September chant is unusual too in that you can actually pin it down. When I first heard it, it was being sung by Watford fans away at Bournemouth in August. I looked it up and found that Rangers, so often responsible for big terrace hits, had also worked one up for new signing Fábio Cardoso. Predating them, however, were Leeds United, who were singing it last year about academy prospect Ronaldo Viera. Middlesbrough too had been singing it in 2016-17 about Gastón Ramírez (presumably the “never gives the ball away” line referred specifically to his memorable solo goal against Bournemouth because he averaged 1.6 turnovers per game last season).

Touch Football Blossoming in Japan

first_imgTouch Football Australia has continued to build on the partnership with Japan Touch Association (JTA) with a number of key activities taking place in early part of 2017. Thanks to the support of the Australia-Japan Foundation (AJF), TFA assisted JTA to deliver a participation clinic to an all girls school in Chiba where close to 100 girls aged 12 to 18 took part in a development clinic run by Australian Women’s Open player and BLK Ambassador, Danielle Davis. In addition to the Chiba clinic, the TFA delegation worked with the JTA to develop a plan which is giving the two organisations particular focus over the next year.To capitalise on the February 2017 visit to Japan, TFA and JTA used the tour to deepen the level of engagement with the Australian Government by providing an overview of the project to Australian Embassy and AJF staff. The next phase of the program TFA will send a delegation to Osaka where participants are already excited by the prospect of a high profile Australian player or coach visiting to share their knowledge.TFA is proud of the flagship partnership with JTA and is using it as a foundation to support the ongoing development of the sport internationally. With the support of the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Asian Sport Partnerships program, TFA will be delivering programs into China throughout March, April and May of 2017 where girls’ participation programs will once again take centre stage.Related LinksTouch blossoms in Japanlast_img read more
