Hotshots: Young Ulster rugby star Conor Joyce

first_imgWho do you admire?Stephen Ferris is an idol of mine, and I also look up to Jamie Heaslip.How was your first season with the U20s?The Six Nations was a major step up in terms of physicality and speed. The collisions are much harder than schoolboy rugby. I played with a lot of the guys for the U19s and we’re a close bunch.You captained your school team and the U19s. Did you enjoy the role?Yes, it’s something I’d like to do again in the future. I’m vocal on the field and in the changing room and in team meetings, but I also try to lead by example.RW verdict: Joyce may be in Ferris’s shadow now, but he’s learning from one of the great Irish back-rowers. Cutting loose: Joyce is tackled by Wallabies during the 2013 Junior World Cup When did you start playing?I played at Solihull School and at my local club, Old Silhillians, until I was about ten.You grew up in England, so what made you want to play for Ireland?All my grandparents are Irish and I come from a very Irish background, so I’m an Irishman at heart. I played for England U16 because there’s not an Irish team at that level, but then I played for Irish Exiles, Youths, U18, U19 and U20.Where do you play now?I’m in Ulster rugby’s academy. I was picked up by the province after playing for Ireland U18.Which is your preferred back-row position?I like to play No 6 but I can move if needs be. I played No 8 in the Junior World Cup games against New Zealand and Australia, and  at school too, but I played No 6 for the Exiles.

Nestled in the Wakatipu basin amongst the Southern Alps, the Arrowtown House rises from the landscape. This private residence has been formed into a series of pavilions that, like the rock forms or rusted goldmining remnants in surrounding area, are set into the ground at various levels and angles, following the contours of the land rather than modifying them. The clients are both artists and sought a house that was both ‘of the land’ and also had a natural sculptural beauty.Save this picture!© Patrick ReynoldsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Patrick ReynoldsThe pavilions have been strategically orientated towards significant mountain ranges and views that surround the property and are organised around an entry forecourt and sculpture court. The children’s/guest pavilion is separated from the rest of the building and set below the courtyard level. The house is entered from the forecourt via a faceted vestibule, which leads to the living pavilion. Beyond the vestibule is the ‘glass house,’ a secondary more ambiguous living space that has an indoor/outdoor quality and has operable glass to three sides. This connects the stone schist clad lounge pavilion to the weathering steel main bedroom pavilion.Save this picture!© Patrick ReynoldsSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Patrick ReynoldsThe garage and living pavilion are clad in local schist, like the historic miners cottages nearby. The two-bedroom pavilions are clad in weathering steel, which references the rusted steel sheds and gold mining remnants seen extensively in Central Otago.Save this picture!© Patrick ReynoldsThe house seeks to be a contextual response to both the changing human occupation of the land over the centuries as well as the beguiling beauty of the wider natural landscape.Save this picture!© Patrick ReynoldsProject gallerySee allShow lessWorld Architecture Festival Call for Entries to The 2019 Architecture Drawing PrizeArchitecture Newslaii Restaurant / maison hSelected Projects Share ArchDaily New Zealand Save this picture!© Patrick Reynolds+ 12Curated by Paula Pintos Share Photographs:  Patrick Reynolds Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: RTA Studio Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeRTA StudioOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesArrowtownNew ZealandPublished on August 09, 2019Cite: “Arrowtown House / RTA Studio” 08 Aug 2019.

YouTube star accused of abusing her seven adoptive children dies in hospital

first_imgChanintorn.v/iStock(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) — A YouTube star who was accused of physically abusing her seven adopted children has died at an Arizona hospital. Machelle Hobson, 48, died Tuesday morning in a hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona, according to Maricopa Police Department spokesman Ricardo Alvarado. The cause and manner of her death was unknown. For years, Hobson ran the popular YouTube channel “Fantastic Adventures,” which featured her adopted kids in different scenarios. She was arrested on March 15 following a welfare check at her home in Maricopa, Arizona, about 35 miles south of downtown Phoenix, according to the complaint filed in Pinal County Superior Court. The officers conducting the welfare check found seven children at Hobson’s residence “who appeared to be malnourished, due to their pale completion, dark rings under their eyes, underweight, and they stated they were thirsty and hungry,” according to the probable cause statement.Some of the children alleged that they were pepper-sprayed, beaten and deprived of food and water if they didn’t participate in the YouTube videos, and that they were punished if they forgot their lines or didn’t follow Hobson’s directions. The YouTube channel has since been deleted. “This is one of the reasons their mom took them out of school, so they can keep filming their series and they mentioned they have not been in school for years,” the probable cause statement reads. All seven children were removed from Hobson’s custody.Hobson denied the allegations at the time, saying the only forms of punishment she uses are grounding, spanking and making the kids stand in the corner, according to the complaint. Her attorney, Richard Scherb, told ABC News in a statement in March, “The state’s case is without merit.” Scherb did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment on her death. Hobson was indicted on Mar. 25 by a grand jury on 30 counts of kidnapping, child abuse, dangerous crimes against children and aggravated assault, according to a press release from the Pinal County Attorney’s Office. Her two biological children, 27-year-old Logan Hackney and 25-year-old Ryan Hackney, were also taken into custody in March on 7 counts each of failing to report child abuse. The brothers were released on their own recognizance and were scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on April 8. But then the Pinal County Attorney’s Office announced its decision not to charge either of them, noting in a statement that the investigation into their “role in the case — if any — is ongoing.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

An investigation into the nonlinear frequency shift in magnetospherically propagated VLF pulses

first_imgWhen ducted narrow-band VLF pulses pass through the Earth’s magnetosphere, small frequency shifts of ∼1 Hz may be observed at the receiving site on the ground. Such shifts may be due to Doppler effects, but nonlinear electron cyclotron resonance near the magnetospheric equator may also play a part. This paper is a study of nonlinear frequency shifts induced by wave-particle interaction effects. The development assumes strong nonlinearity and the dominance of particle trapping. The VLF pulses are considered to be much shorter than the scale length of the interaction region; however, for long pulses the results remain valid for the front part of the pulse as seen at the receiving site. Numerical simulations for the NAA and Siple transmitters are performed using a Vlasov code. The results are in general agreement with the theoretical analysis. Experimental observations are reviewed, and future active experiments are suggestedlast_img read more
