Bears DoR Pat Lam said: “Steven was desperate to play and be with his team-mates so we made sure we gave him every opportunity to get here, because he’s such an important leader for our team.“But family always comes first and Steven and Olivia has everybody’s full support at the Bears. When we spoke this morning, I told him to focus on the arrival of his trophy and we’ll try and bring back a trophy for Bristol this evening.”Back to selections. Lock Dave Attwood starts against his former club, Alapati Leiua and Harry Randall come back in to the backline, and Dan Thomas, Yann Thomas and Kyle Sinckler bolster the pack. And if that track is fast, the hope is that European Player of the Year nominee Semi Radradra can cut loose.For Toulon, its all about powerful combinations. The back row of Charles Ollivon, Raphael Lakafia and Sergio Parisse (who lifted this title with Stade Francais in 2017) is seen as a danger while the half-back pairing of Baptiste Serin and Louis Carbonel will make them tick.Springbok bruiser Eben Etzebeth is in the second row and hooker Anthony Etrillard captains the side.Happy: Toulon celebrate a try in the semi-final (Getty Images)Bristol: Max Malins; Luke Morahan, Semi Radradra, Siale Piutau (captain), Alapati Leiua; Callum Sheedy, Harry Randall; Yann Thomas, Harry Thacker, Kyle Sinckler, Dave Attwood, Joe Joyce, Chris Vui, Dan Thomas, Ben Earl.Replacements: George Kloska, Jake Woolmore, John Afoa, Ed Holmes, Jake Heenan, Tom Kessell, Piers O’Conor, Niyi Adeolokun.Toulon: Gervais Cordin; Bryce Heem, Isaia Toeava, Duncan Paia’aua, Gabin Villière; Louis Carbonel, Baptiste Serin; Jean-Baptiste Gros, Anthony Etrillard (captain), Beka Gigashvili, Eben Etzebeth, Romain Taofifenua, Charles Ollivon, Raphael Lakafia, Sergio Parisse.Replacements: Bastien Soury, Florian Fresia, Emerick Setiano, Brian Alainu’uese,  Swan Rebbadj, Julien Ory, Tane Takulua, Masivesi Dakuwaqa.Here’s how to strea the matches wherever you are…How to watch Bristol v Toulon from outside your countryIf you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Challenge Cup coverage, like Bristol v Toulon, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Challenge Cup live stream you would at home.Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.

For that reason long-term kit supplier Adidas doesn’t mess around too much with the formula… at least on the surface.But the really clever stuff is under the hood, where the All Blacks get the full benefit of the R&D department of the world’s second-biggest sportswear brand to create what is very likely the most advanced rugby shirt on the planet. So a closer look reveals a shirt woven together by machine to remove any friction-producing seams, Adidas’ unique ‘triaxle’ fabric for ultimate strength and comfort, and super durable heat-applied logos.

Note the interesting two-fabric approach giving the shirt its two-tone effect for example.It’s also unbelievably stylish, from the subtle tricolore striping that runs down one sleeve, the diagonal stitching down the side vents, or indeed that gloriously retro FFR crest, this certainly stands out from the crowd.Buy now from Pro:Direct Rugby for £68 Can’t get to the shops?

A cramped, dark and damp Victorian cottage is transformed into a light-filled, flowing and uplifting home, while referencing original features of the house. The project is unique in that the architect was also its builder and joiner, so this provided the opportunity to test out ambitious ideas and their consequence during construction. One of the special aspects about this project is the play of contrasts between the modest facade and what lies inside. Like a veil of camouflage, the front gives nothing away of its contents and remains perfectly anonymous.Save this picture!Facade. Image © Daniel AulsebrookBriefThis was an investment project for the studio so we set a hypothetical brief as follows. How might a professional couple live comfortably inside a formerly tight and dingy Victorian of 60m2? To add to the challenge, an extension was out of the question due to budget constraints, so all changes had to be made inside the existing envelope.Save this picture!Coutyard at Night. Image © Daniel AulsebrookPlanWe felt a couple would only need one dedicated bedroom so the front room could be incorporated into the hallway and become a flexible and open living space. On the occasion that guests stay over, a curtain can be pulled across to ‘  wall’   off a spare room.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe kitchen was reconfigured to include a generous island for ease of circulation and encourage shared cooking. The dining area extends out from the island bench and provides a seamless transition to the courtyard.Save this picture!Kitchen. Image © Daniel AulsebrookSectionWhile we couldn’  t increase the square meterage of the house, we could add to the volume and feeling of space. We did this by lifting the ceiling to the line of the original rafters which created the opportunity to light the house indirectly by placing LED strips atop the newly exposed ceiling joists. In addition, a little quirk can be seen on the brick wall in the kitchen, where we punched a hole through at the top to add a further connection between front and back, while also providing an access point to the attic floor.Save this picture!Living room. Image © Daniel AulsebrookThis connection can be felt when the light from LED’  s running around the bedroom perimeter are switched on.

36 Years of Safety Efforts makes Field an Honorary Master Farmer

first_img Field among Master FarmersOne week ago the new crop of Indiana Master Farmers was honored at a banquet sponsored by Indiana Prairie Farmer and Purdue Extension. This year one of Purdue’s own is an Honorary Master Farmer for his nearly four decades of work devoted to improving on-farm safety. Dr. Bill Field is still going strong after starting his work at Purdue in 1978.“It’s been a wonderful trip,” he told HAT. “I have no intentions of changing right now. I’ve actually recruited a group of new graduate students to come on board. I think the thing I really enjoy right now is mentoring people that are going to be around when I’m gone, and that includes graduate students, undergrad students. In fact one of the first individuals who came up to me when I came in the door was a former student from a long time ago. I’ve been teaching the same safety courses for 36 years, so there are several thousand farm kids out there, or ag teachers that have taken those courses, and hopefully they’re using that information to just sort of multiply or leverage it beyond what I could ever do.”Field can point to the data to confirm the fruits of his labor and back up an assertion that “farming is safer than it’s ever been in history.” And one piece of proof is a new milestone statistic.“We’ve had two years in the last decade where we’ve had no children killed on an Indiana farm, and that never could be said over the last 150 years in this state, in which a year had gone by where not one single child could be documented as having died on a farm. I think that’s a significant move forward. I think the numbers of cases that we document each year is down.”Field adds farmers are healthier and living longer.“Even with all the scare tactics that we see from certain groups that chemicals are a problem or whatever, it’s just not reality. The reality is that farmers are healthier, living longer, and have a lot more fun than they’ve ever had in history.”New Master Farmers this year are Jack and Rita Maloney and Mike and Karen Starkey, both couples from Brownsburg, Carl and Delene Schmitz of Wadesville in Posey County, and David and Danita Rodibaugh, Rensselaer in Jasper County. Stories with the new class will appear in the coming weeks.

Bears in Control Going into Plantings Report

first_img By Gary Truitt – Mar 31, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Bears in Control Going into Plantings Report Bears in Control Going into Plantings ReportFriday’s quarterly grain stocks and planting intentions reports will set the tone for the market for the next few months. The Bears have been in control, and corn and soybean prices have been under pressure for the past few weeks. Disappointing export numbers on Thursday help put the trade in a definite funk heading into the reports that will be released at Mid-day. Corn acres are expected to be between 90-92MA while soybeans are expected to be between 86-89MA. Grain stocks look to be about 90 million bushels for corn and 88 million bushels for soybeans.Doug Werling, with Bower Trading, says the market is expecting bearish reports, so, if that is what we get, we could see a move to the up side, “Sort of a sell the rumor and buy the fact scenario.” Werling feels that, if the stocks numbers are less than expected, it might give the bulls something to get excited about, “There is still some good demand out there. Ethanol production is at a record pace, our exports for corn are good, and feed demand here in the U.S. looks good.”In years past where weather has dictated what actually gets planted, there is sometimes a significant difference between the March estimates and the June planted acreage reports. Mike Silver, with Kokomo grain, told HAT, “In the last 20 years, the March intentions for corn have been higher than the actually planted acreage 8 times and lower 12 times.  For soybeans the difference between the March intentions report and the June planted acreage report are equal with 10 times being higher and 10 times lower.” Werling says this year there may not be much of a change, “We would have to see a big jump in corn prices in order for guys to want to switch from soybeans to corn.”Most traders and analysts agree there is a great deal of uncertainty about this year’s reports and a good deal of market volatility is likely.  Price limits for tomorrow are: 25 cents on corn, 30 cents for Kansas City Hard Red Wheat and Chicago Soft Red Winter Wheat, 60 cents on Minneapolis Wheat, and 70 cents on Soybeans.HAT will have the numbers at mid-day and analysis this afternoon and Monday morning on this web site.

Many detained journalists, such as Narges Mohammadi, are being subjected to inhuman and degrading conditions and denied their most basic rights.Journalist Mahssa Amrabadi, the wife of imprisoned journalist Masoud Bastani, was arrested yesterday after receiving a summons to report to the prosecutor’s office at Evin prison. She was sentenced by a Tehran revolutionary court on 20 February to five years in prison (one definite and four conditional) for giving interviews and writing articles in support of her husband and demanding his release.She was also sentenced by another Tehran revolutionary court on 14 October 2010 to a year in prison for “anti-government propaganda.” Her husband, who used to work for the daily Farhikhteghan, is in Rajaishahr prison. Arrested on 4 July 2009, he was tried along with many other journalists in the Stalinist-style mass trials that the government began holding in Tehran in August 2009. A revolutionary court sentenced him to six years in prison on 1 November 2009.Reza Ansari Rad, a journalist with various pro-reform media, was summoned on 2 May to begin serving the one-year jail sentence which he received in 2010 on a charge of “anti-government propaganda” and which was upheld by a Tehran appeal court in March.last_img read more
