The greatest second-rows of all time: Paul O’Connell

first_img TAGS: The Greatest Players In it, he urged “manic aggression”, asking colleagues to pose themselves the question: “Did I put the fear of God into anyone?”Returning from a debilitating back injury to give a Man of the Match display for Munster against Harlequins in the 2013 Heineken Cup quarter-final, O’Connell showed himself ready for a third Lions tour to Australia after heading to New Zealand in 2005 and captaining the 2009 South Africa trip.In the wake of that monstrous effort, he said, “I felt like an amateur today” – a declaration of the burning pride in representing his province.A 31-13 loss to Glasgow Warriors in the Pro12 final last May ended O’Connell’s Munster career with a solitary Celtic League title. Ireland’s Paul O’Connell It is with good reason that Ireland’s Paul O’Connell is considered one of the greatest ever second-rows Major teams: MunsterCountry: Ireland
Test span: 2002-2015Ireland caps: 108 (99 starts)Lions caps: 7 (7 starts)Test points: 40 (8T)Superman heads to bed each night wearing Paul O’Connell pyjamas, or so the story goes down in Limerick. Certainly, Clark Kent’s alter ego might be frightened to don anything else.According to Ronan O’Gara, O’Connell’s long-term lieutenant with Munster and Ireland, it is a relentless dedication that characterises the flame-haired lock.“Paul is all about standards,” explains the former fly-half. “I’ve seen what difference one individual can make to an organisation.”O’Connell exudes an intelligent but fiercely authoritative charisma. Inspirational leadership underpins a staggering honours list – two Heineken Cups, a century of Ireland caps, three Lions tours and another trio of Six Nations titles including the 2009 Grand Slam.Standing 6ft 6in tall, physical presence contributes something primal to O’Connell’s aura. One changing room address to his Ireland team-mates prior to the 2007 clash with France has had over a million views on YouTube. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Toulon would be benefiting greatly from the Irishman’s expertise had a hamstring injury, sustained in Ireland’s pool stage match against France at the Rugby World Cup, not hampered his opportunity. He bowed out of international duty after 13 seasons in the Ireland side since a try-scoring debut against Wales.In retirement, O’Connell’s trademark commitment is sure to enrich his provincial side Munster, as he takes on a part-time mentoring role within the club’s academy set up.last_img read more

Will this be Arrowsmith’s Last Election Day on an Apopka Ballot?

first_img Please enter your comment! The Anatomy of Fear  Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith is coming off a record-breaking performance on March 15th when he received the most votes in Apopka history. His 4,489 total was still not enough to avoid a runoff with first-time candidate and Seat #4 opponent Kyle Becker. Today Apopka voters have what might be their last opportunity to vote for the 39-year incumbent.Candidate Feature: Bill Arrowsmith Seat #4 incumbentCommissioner Bill Arrowsmith defends Seat #4 against Kyle Becker.Bill Arrowsmith is an institution in Apopka. He believes experience is an asset, not a liability. He worked with former Mayor John Land for decades, fiercely defends his accomplishments and reveres his friendship and memory. He talks about legacies and values building a reserve in the City’s budget more than building a costly vision.He is the 39-year incumbent of Seat #4 running against first-time candidates Kyle Becker, and its possible this will be his last campaign. In fact he almost didn’t run this time.“There are certain people who have attended every city council meeting for the last couple of years. If they had stepped up and said they were running, I probably wouldn’t have run. But we (he and his wife Janine) talked about it in November in detail,” he said. “We received a lot of encouragement from the community. I think that’s the reason we did it again. I just had a lot of encouragement to run. We knew it would be a lot of work, and we know there’s a lot of people working against us, but a lot of people are working for us too.”And he sees a seat on the City Council as an honor you earn, not one you win.“Part of my makeup is to be as involved as I can be, to help this city. To just hand this seat over to someone with zero experience in office, and zero experience in the community? That’s like wasting 40 years as far as I’m concerned. I want to leave the legacy in someone’s hands that’s educated in the community. I feel strongly that if you’re going to get involved in public service, you should start with community service. Attend City Council meetings. It just gives you better footing. Unfortunately when you have people who decide to do that, to jump in without that experience, well it’s unfortunate.”Despite being criticized for being on the City Council for 39 years, he still points to his experience as a valuable tool in governing Apopka.“My experience is the value I can add. Just from past experiences of what not to do and what to do again. That’s my biggest advantage. When it comes to everything, I feel like I can take my experience from the past and apply it. By the virtue of being there so long it gives me the opportunity to draw from – good and bad. And I’m not afraid to admit to my mistakes in the past as far as decisions we made – and you try not to repeat those mistakes.”And it’s his experience that tells Arrowsmith the City is heading in a bad trajectory as it relates to budget management.“It’s been a challenge. We spent a lot of hours knocking on doors. It updates your perspective. It enlightens you. We’ve had a lot of good experiences. A lot of very favorable comments from people.”“Part of my makeup is to be as involved as I can be, to help this city. To just hand this seat over to someone with zero experience in office, and zero experience in the community? That’s like wasting 40 years as far as I’m concerned. “It’s (the City budget) not as strong as it has been in the past. We’re spending reserves. In the past we had a history of building strong reserves and we operated within the budget. I don’t have a comfortable feeling with our financial report. We had a 14-year relationship with the past Financial Director. He won awards. He was outstanding, and did a great job with the budget. Now you ask a question and you have three different people looking in different directions to see whose going to come up with an answer.”It is in part because of what he believes are budget inefficiencies and his observations on the campaign trail that leads Arrowsmith to think that if Mayor Joe Kilsheimer were running this term, he might not survive.“When you knock on doors, you hear a lot of things. They ask me ‘how do you get along with this new mayor?’ I tell them we don’t share the same philosophy. And then they say ‘I’m going to vote for you’ 100% of the time. I think if he (Kilsheimer) were running for re-election today, from the number of responses I have gotten, he would be in trouble.”Arrowsmith attended the Visioning Apopka workshops, but warns each of these ideas comes with a price tag.“The visioning process told me about the same thing as I’ve always heard. We did one in 2010. There’s a booklet from our visioning process back then. Well, let’s look at that 2010 visioning process and see if we can expand on that or implement it before we spend $125,000 on this group. These visionaries come in with all their elevations and their drawings and all kind of stuff and it looks wonderful, but who’s going to pay for it? It will be interesting to see what the end result is and it will be more interesting to see how they will fund it.”He has enjoyed this campaign, but thinks it may be his last.“I’m 95% sure I won’t be running again. I’d like to take the next four years to groom my successor.”Despite this campaign possibly being his last, he has enjoyed talking to the voters.“We probably have 500 signs in people’s yards. It’s been from the voter’s standpoint a very positive experience. And we’ve said from the beginning we would run a positive campaign. And we’ve had a lot of abuse thrown at us. My opponent has nothing positive to say, so he has no choice but to go negative. But we just keep going forward.” Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Jane Hobson Please enter your name here Sadly, where were the balance of those voters on Tuesday.

The House of Stones is an individual 4 storeys house located in Changhua, Taiwan. The site is in irregular triangle shape, where using the typical structural grid system is not applicable and not efficient. In this circumstance, we come up with the following two concepts.Save this picture!© Tze-Chun WeiFloating of StonesOur initial inspiration comes from the rock in Zhangjiajie, and we see the site as a stone full of shapes, which then set out the composition strategy of our projects. All the opening of the building is followed by the idea of shaping a stone, where windows and roof are excavated and cut like a big rock.Save this picture!ModelIn order to express the concept of a floating stone and the different functions of the house, we separate the ground floor that is commercial use with exposed concrete and the upper floors that function as a private house with a white painted volume.

A similar formal and colour approach to the existing Farm was used for the design of the new house, but reinterpreted in a thoroughly contemporary way, from structure to finishes and importantly, a very high level of energy efficiency.Save this picture!© Imagen SubliminalA prefab and industrialised construction method, CLT (contra-laminated timber panels), was used for the construction.

The first one, up to 2.20m, the human level reachable by hand, making use of earthy textures to be experienced through touch, like mortex or chestnut, and which defines the height of doors and windows. The next layer, the layer of  air with the ceilings that bathe the house in natural light with their rooflights and pitches.Save this picture!© Imagen SubliminalThe two master bedrooms look towards East and West at the two ends of the house.

An Intensive Observation of Calving at Helheim Glacier, East Greenland

first_imgCalving of glacial ice into the ocean from the Greenland Ice Sheet is an important component of global sea level rise. The calving process itself is relatively poorly observed, understood, and modeled; as such, it represents a bottleneck in improving future global sea level estimates in climate models. We organized a pilot project to observe the calving process at Helheim Glacier in East Greenland in an effort to better understand it. During an intensive one-week survey, we deployed a suite of instrumentation including a terrestrial radar interferometer, GPS receivers, seismometers, tsunameters, and an automated weather station. This effort captured a calving process and measured various glaciological, oceanographic, and atmospheric parameters before, during, and after the event. One outcome of our observations is evidence that the calving process actually consists of a number of discrete events, spread out over time, in this instance over at least two days. This time span has implications for models of the process. Realistic projections of future global sea level will depend on accurate parametrization of calving, which will require more sustained observations.last_img read more
