Photo by TCU Soccer Twitter ReddIt Head coach Eric Bell said the field needed improvements.“In our situation, the resurfacing needed to happen,” he said. “These improvements are going to allow us to have a championship performance on a championship field.”The new field will be completed before this fall’s soccer season. The grass will be growing by the end of June and will be completed the end of July 2017 to be ready by this August. Updates can be found on their Twitter. printWhen crews finish construction on the Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium, players won’t have to run uphill anymore, but they will be able to safely play in the rain.The field was originally had a clay surface, meaning the water wouldn’t drain correctly, and it was built on a hill.“It may not seem to be too noticeable to the eye, but they were having to run uphill while playing,” said Harold Leeman, the director of facility planning and construction.The soccer field was six feet higher at one end, Leeman said. Now, construction crews are working on resurfacing the field by bringing the hill down to a level to ensure a flat playing ground.Crews are also adding a drainage system so they can play in the rain. The field will no longer turn muddy which affected practices and games because the water will drain through rather than sitting on top, Leeman said.The field is being changed from clay-based to sand-based. This will keep the field drier with less wet spots and flooding, Leeman said. The field will also permit more grass growth and less patchy spots.The crews will also replace the four existing light poles with six new poles. This will enable them to have televised games at night, said Brandie Davidson, the assistant director of media relations.During the resurfacing construction, the team is practicing in the indoor facility in the mornings.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Alok Aradhe said: “As observed on earlier date, there is a time gap between person getting intimated of tested positive and visit of paramedic and team of BBMP at his residence. This time is very crucial as delay, can result in spread of COVID19. This will be so in case of asymptomatic patient because he may not be in home quarantine after he submits his sample for test. State and BBMP must ensure that time lag between test report and visit of BBMP team is curtailed to the minimum.” Further it added that “After a person receives a report or SMS that he is tested positive, considering the state of mind of such a patient, he needs to be informed immediately what action he is supposed to take. He must be informed that in case he is asymptomatic and does not have facility of home isolation he can go to private CCC. In case his condition requires admission to hospital he has freedom of approaching private hospitals the list of which is available on the portal of BBMP. He should also be informed that any event team of BBMP will visit his residence.”After going through the circular issued by the government regarding facilities required for home isolation the bench said “In very few cases ideal isolation facilities will be available to a person who has tested positive. If a person who is having ILI symptoms test positive, continues to stay at home which is not suitable as an isolation facility, he may become a source of spreading infection of virus. This grey area has to be addressed by the State and BBMP. A person who goes to the testing centre and falls in the category B is immediately advised home quarantined. If home does not qualify for home isolation he should be moved to CCC. Considering large number of cases which are reported in the city, state should take appropriate steps to curtail the time limit for test results.” In its written submission the state government informed the court that it has issued an order under section 24 (f) of the disaster management act directing private hospitals to reserve 50 percent beds for State and BBMP to be used for treating Covid patients. However, the court said “The said order does not deal with the issue of denial of admission to Covid-19 patients on beds which are not reserved for state or BBMP. State will consider whether such directions can be issued to private hospitals in relation to beds which are not reserved and available to covid19 patients subject to payment of charges. State to consider whether a direction can be issued to private hospitals not to deny admission to any Covid-19 patient if beds are available and if the person is willing to pay charges.” The bench has also asked the state to issue a direction to private hospitals that non-covid patients cannot be refused treatment by private hospitals unless they bring a test report of covid19, test. On the report submitted by the District Legal Aid Services Authority the bench about the non active CCC in the city. The bench directed the state to look into the same. The bench also asked the BBMP to place on record steps taken to resolve the issues regarding not providing safety equipments to pourakarmikas. 23 pourakarmikas have tested positive in a random checking done in one ward and till now five have expired after being infected with Covid19.

Electrical conductivity measurements from the GISP2 and GRIP Greenlandice cores

first_imgTHE direct-current electrical conductivity of glacial ice depends on its acidity1–3, and can also indicate changes in climate, as ice formed in cold, dusty periods has a high concentration of alkaline dust1,4,5, which significantly reduces the conductivity6,7 compared to warmer, less dusty periods. Here we present electrical conductivity records for the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) and Greenland Ice-core Project (GRIP) ice cores, drilled 28 km apart to enable direct comparison of the results. The upper parts of both records are consistent with previous evidence from other Greenland cores4,8& #150;12 for a stable Greenland climate during the Holocene, and a series of warm events punctuating the last glacial period. However, there is a significant discrepancy between the two records in the bottom 10% of the cores, calling into question recent reports of climate variability in the last interglacial4,8 and the penultimate glaciation8. At this stage, it is too early to say what exactly is causing the discrepancy, although ice flow may have introduced some discontinuities into the records. Further work will be necessary to establish how much climatic information it will eventually be possible to extract from the lower parts of the two cores.last_img read more

Marriage in miniature

first_imgA Doll’s Housedir Tom Littler15 – 18 NovemberThe MoserYou are requested not to mention Ibsen’s Doll’s House!” – such was the cry of many a social invitation in 1879, where even discussing the Norwegian playwright’s classic treatmentof a woman’s role in a patriarchal society was enough to incite scandal. In this production, however, director Tom Littler consciously shifts the emphasisaway from a female struggle in a male-dominated world to the universal struggle to assert personal freedom, and fulfil our “duty to ourselves.” What so shocked spectators in the nineteenth century – the idea that a heroine could lie to her family, and even put herself before her husband – is not what shocks audiences in the twenty-first century. However, Littler creates a fresh impact by bringing the human condition, and not social conditions, to the fore, questioning the motivations of Ibsen’s characters while investigating the relationshipbetween loyalty and liberty.The staging reflects the contemporarynature of such themes; the action is wrenched firmly away from the stuffy Victorian lounges in which it is normally found and thrown firmly into the present day, presenting us with a meticulously recreated present day living room. With the play also being performed outside Oxford, designer Pip Swindall has a far greater budget to work from than we would expect from a Moser production, and it shows. The lavish set, carpeted and fully decorated, creates a perfect naturalistic backdrop, encouraging the audience to lose themselves in the confines of Nora’s domestic world. The realism restores the immediacy that would have greeted original audiences by placing Nora Helmer’s distressing story within the comfortable surroundings of an average middle-class home. A doll’s house itself sits ominously among the possessions, a reminder of Nora’s trapped state, merely a toy to be played with, as and when her family chooses, while the merry Christmasadornments stand in stark contrast to the increasingly fraught emotions of the various characters. Christmas carols drift disquietingly through the play, their joyfulness ravaged by white noise, or by the creak of a door, a leitmotif that hints menacingly at the play’s shattering conclusion. The naturalistic set is punctured by a projection screen, doubling as a window, where shifting images convey the internal worlds of Ibsen’s characters, helping to clarify their inner thoughts and desires.The acting is almost invariably excellent, a high degree of naturalism meaning we often forget we are watchinga theatrical performance. Claire Palmer beautifully captures Nora’s conflict of loyalties, and provides a powerful and intensely empathetic focus for the play, carrying herself wonderfullyin an incredibly draining role. Kane Sharpe, as her husband Torvald, creates the archetypal modern professional;charming, condescending and reputation-obsessed, he is not simply a fierce misogynist but a loving husband, albeit one to whom a wife is a pet. Their initial playful exchanges, where Torvald teasingly reprimands his little “squirrel” for being a spendthrift, make their later exchanges all the more devastating, the contrast between the superficially happy family and Nora’s horribly constrained relationship with her husband brought into even sharper relief.The couple are well supported by Ben Galpin as the blackmailing Krogstadt, not presented as a one-dimensional evil but as a sympathetic character with understandablemotives, and Caz Brown, a world-weary, compassionate Kristine. The freshness of Ibsen’s dialogue makes it seem almost contemporary, and the cast approach it as such, with electrifying results. The staging can at times become overly static but the constantly engaging naturalism of the characters means it rarely becomes tedious.A Doll’s House is an emotionally exhausting piece of theatre, but a truly rewarding one, and while we may not be scandalised by this production, it provides a unique exploration into what our duty is to ourselves and to others. You are encouraged to discuss it.ARCHIVE: 5th week MT 2005last_img read more
