David Skrela sinks Bath in the dying moments

first_imgFriday Oct 17, 2008 David Skrela sinks Bath in the dying moments Bath were left wondering what could have been on Sunday as they missed out on a victory that was in the bag right up until the last ten seconds. But it was not to be as Toulouse flyhalf David Skrela slotted a winning penalty that had the 35 000 strong home crowd on their feet, and the Bath players and fans stunned.In a game that was as much absorbing and tense as it was exciting at the end, Bath could have and should have come out on top after getting themselves in a winning position with very little time left.Nick Abendanon was named man of the match, three minutes too early though as his try had looked to break French hearts. With two minutes to go, Bath were ahead by one and even with the missed conversion attempt by Butch James, looked as if they were in stall for a famous victory.But, it went horribly wrong as their attempts to wind down the clock failed and they somehow coughed up the ball, handing Toulouse one last chance at cracking the line.Toulouse attacked down the right wing, and a last gasp tackle by Butch James saved the try, but gave away a vital penalty with time up.David Skrela stepped forward with the clock showing 80 minutes.He judged the wind perfectly, and while the groans from the crowd had you thinking it was going wide, it cut back at the last possible moment, snatching a last gasp win that shattered Bath hearts. Incidentally, Byron Kelleher was cited for the stamp on Butch James legs at that last ruck. He has since been cleared though, as the commission found him not guilty.

Jean Deysel called up to the Springbok squad

first_imgWednesday Nov 4, 2009 Jean Deysel called up to the Springbok squad One of the strongest runners in world rugby, Sharks flank Jean Deysel has finally got his Springbok call up following an injury to Pierre Spies.Spies injured his finger in training on Monday, so will miss the whole of the end of year tour unfortunately. One man’s misfortune is another man’s gain though, as Deysel will join the squad as they tour the UK, Ireland, and Europe.Deysel has performed consistently well for the Sharks in both the Super 14 and Currie Cup, and anyone who’s ever seen him play will know that when he gets ball in hand, it’s best if the defence steps out the way.A monster of a man, there’s few players that are more powerful than Deysel when carrying it up. He’s good in the loose and strong on defence, and has made a habit of bashing players out the way, crossing the advantage line more often than not.We were considering making some kind of compilation of his charges from the season, but our friend combatBok has done it for us, with this awesome short video that goes nicely with his selection for the tour.He’ll come off the bench for the Springbok midweek team when they play against Leicester Tigers on Friday night, so lookout for a few of those trademark runs if he’s given the opportunity.Lock the kids away. Get your shotgun. Jean Deysel is here and it’s going to take a lot to stop him. :: Related Posts :: Currie Cup best tries mix – Rounds 12, 13 & 14 Ryan Kankowski gallops in for a great Sharks try Time: 01:01ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Located in the middle of a bull paddock sits an off-grid home inspired by the iconic Australian Akubra hat. This inspiration came about at the first meeting with the clients on their bull farm, around 50mins southeast of Tamworth. The client had selected the site for their new home atop a gently sloping hill, amongst a grove of eucalypts, with the land falling sharply away to the east to a dry creek bed. From this vantage point, the clients pointed out the vistas they wanted to appreciate from their new home: “Yella-rock” to the south, “hanging-rock” to the east, a unique vista north through the grove of native trees and a vista west, over the dusty bull paddocks to the rolling hills beyond. Essentially an amazing 360 degree view all the way around. Save this picture!© Barton TaylorSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Barton TaylorIt was at this point that one of the key challenges for this project presented itself: how to create low energy, thermally comfortable home that celebrated views all around. The station manager was curiously watching on, wondering what this city-slicker Architect was going to do, when I asked him for his Akubra hat. Placing it upside down, I started to explain the concept of the “upside-down Akubra house”. The idea being, a single large scale roof form, much like the brim of the Akubra hat, overhanging the house below. The roof would block out all the summer sun, yet allow in the winter sun to warm the central thermal mass that would form the spine of the home as well as catching rainwater to run the house, all with a functional home underneath celebrating views in every direction. Save this picture!© Barton TaylorFrom this meeting, the Upside Down Akubra House was born, a house with a roof that is 2.5 times the size of the building footprint, a home that generates and stores all its own energy and collects enough water to run the house and treat its own waste. Living off-grid is not new these days, but necessary in this remote location, greatly affected by extreme weather conditions including the current drought. What makes this off-grid home unique, however, is how the technology has become the aesthetic of the home. Save this picture!© Barton TaylorSave this picture!© Barton TaylorSave this picture!© Barton TaylorCelebrating the off-grid characteristics begins with the “humble” carport, although standing at 4.5m at the tallest point and covering an area of 80m2 this carport is far from humble. It is, in fact, a canopy of LG neon bi-facial photovoltaics, which means that the solar cells are visible from the underside of the canopy celebrating the technology that powers the whole house. Through exposing the solar panels this communicates to visitors the eco-technologies that are integrated into the design and educates all on low environmental impact power generation options and the efficient use of energy. Save this picture!© Barton TaylorProject gallerySee allShow lessforte_forte Store Roma / forte_forteSelected ProjectsMonochromatic Pastel: New Collection of Porcelain-Stoneware Tiles by Casalgrande PadanaArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931920/upside-down-akubra-house-alexander-symes-architect Clipboard CopyHouses•Nundle, Australia Upside Down Akubra House / Alexander Symes ArchitectSave this projectSaveUpside Down Akubra House / Alexander Symes Architect Australia 2019 Houses ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931920/upside-down-akubra-house-alexander-symes-architect Clipboard Photographs:  Barton Taylor Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project center_img Year:  Area:  195 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Alexander Symes Architect Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Save this picture!© Barton Taylor+ 50Curated by Paula Pintos Share Upside Down Akubra House / Alexander Symes Architect “COPY” Projects CopyAbout this officeAlexander Symes ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIcebergOn FacebookNundleAustraliaPublished on June 09, 2021Cite: “Upside Down Akubra House / Alexander Symes Architect ” 09 Jun 2021.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Amir ZakiCarmine IannacconeThe Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens will offer a new view of the natural world when it presents “Farewell, Eden,” an exhibition opening Jan. 19, 2016. The exhibit is presented in collaboration with “Urbanature” at the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. “Farewell, Eden” runs Jan. 19 through April 3. “Urbanature” is presented Feb. 22 through May 8. The two galleries will share a reception on Sunday, Feb. 21 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Descanso Gardens and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Art Center.“Farewell, Eden” invites the viewer to think of nature as a force of life in an increasingly urban world that is densely populated and running low on resources. “Nature may have existed as pristine and untouched at one time, but theDevon Tsunoarrival of humans as the dominant component of life on earth has changed the old vision of nature forever,” said David R. Brown, Descanso Gardens executive director. “Humans and the byproducts of their population growth, the introduction of agriculture, the industrial revolution, the rise of great cities connected by infrastructure, carbon-induced climate change, apparent global warming, the melting of the polar ice and the threat to millions of people posed by rising seas have made it impossible to find any place on earth that has not been affected by humans. Nature isn’t what it used to be. Yet nature persists, always adapting, changing, appearing in new forms and unexpected ways.”Dee Hibbert-Jones“Farewell, Eden” will feature works by artists Lynn Aldrich, Nadege Monchera Baer, Jennifer Gunlock, Dee Hibbert-Jones, Carmine Iannaccone, Aline Mare, Mark Steven Greenfield, Amir Zaki, Jane Brucker, Devon Tsuno, Carlee Fernandez, Elizabeth Saveri and Gloria Kondrup.“Farewell, Eden” is funded in part by Heather and Paul Haaga.
