The Lyghfield Bible – named after the 16th-century monk who once owned it – was amongst a number of items removed from the cathedral’s monastic library at the time of the reformation. The monastic community at Canterbury was one of many which were dissolved on the orders of Henry VIII as he attempted to assert his authority over the newly independent church and plunder its assets.Read the entire article here.

first_imgWednesday Apr 11, 2007 Super14 Plays of the Week Rounds 8 & 9 Weeks 8 and 9 of Plays of the Week were compiled into one action packed episode.Some brilliant moments, including Doug ‘The Hitman’ Howlett showing once again that wingers can use their speed and strength to make an impact on defense, not only attack.Plenty of ‘Percys’, including Francois Steyn with a few classics. Eyes on the ball plz Francois.Peter Hewats ‘Phantom Percy’ was the best in my opinion though, with the commentators “Naaaooo naaaooo naaaooo!” saying it all.I also loved Jerry Collins’ comment to the ‘Rif’ about whos REALLY reffing the match.

This small tower has been built in the historic Krutenau district in Strasbourg.The city has a number of “hollow teeth” – vacant plots that are too small to be of interest to promoters. In exchange for an attractive price, the consultation called for the production of an exemplary building guaranteeing the achievement of high energy performances, the use of bio-sourced materials, and a mixed-purpose project.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!PlansOn a plot measuring just 120 square metres, we proposed a programme of offices and accommodation, with a kitchen garden and an organic swimming pool on the topmost terrace.Save this picture!© Eugeni PonsThe skin is in scorched wood (larch), a technique often utilised in Japan that makes the material long-lasting by scorching its outer surface.The facade masks the interconnection of the programmes. The openings in the walls appear to be random, not corresponding to any functional requirements, and their different sizes make it difficult to distinguish the different levels of the building. This is contained freedom. Towards the top, a volume of rough concrete pivots through 10°, appearing to detach itself from the black mass of the wood base and producing a dynamic corner.Save this picture!© Eugeni PonsThe orange and silver-coloured projecting blinds add a touch of colour to the strange outline of this dark building.The building is generous with the street. Large bay windows offer views into the scale-model workshop, which is slightly below street level, so that the activity of an architect’s office can be seen. This transparency is often seen in Scandinavian countries, where people place their most attractive belongings next to a window, as if offering them to the street outside.Save this picture!© Eugeni PonsLike Loos’ Raumplan, the spaces interconnect in a complex fashion, with double heights lending fluidity to the whole. The spacing between the different floors differs according to the spaces, giving them their proper proportions.Save this picture!© Eugeni PonsOn the inside, the materials used are sturdy and rustic. The concrete floors have merely been polished. Shelving and cupboards are in wood; the staircase is in untreated metal.Save this picture!© David Romero-UzedaThe building appears to play with the contradictions in the situation, condensing its complexity and offering a joyful rendition. Save this picture!© Eugeni PonsProject gallerySee allShow lessK2S Architects Wins Competition to Replace Fire-Razed Church in Ylivieska, FinlandArchitecture NewsCEMEX Announces International Winners In Their 2017 Building AwardsArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:13 Rue de la Tour des Pecheurs, 67000 Strasbourg, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Long Days, Fast Planting This Week

first_img Long Days, Fast Planting This Week Pioneer-planting-updateWhere conditions allow, farmers have been planting non-stop this week trying to make up time. Monday’s USDA report still showed Indiana way behind in getting crops planted.  Some areas of the state have had 3 inch rains; others have seen hail. Some areas have been dry enough to allow planting, and growers are running nearly 24 hours straight. Brian Bush, with Pioneer, says the soil moisture has made germination quick, “I have had some growers tell me that 5 days in the ground and they are seeing corn pop out of the soil.  That is great.” As of Sunday, 18% of the planted corn had emerged.Bush says, for those planting soybeans, increased seeding rates are called for, “If you are planting soybeans today, you need to increase your seeding rate by about 15%. With the late planting, we will not see plants as tall, and so we need more plants to get more nodes per acre.” He is also recommending narrower rows. He noted that, in some soybean fields in SE Indiana, crusting of the soil has been a problem.As for weed control, most plans went out the window this spring. Bush urges caution with some of the options you may be considering this summer, “There is some chemistry that has plant back restrictions that could impact next year’s crop.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 6, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Long Days, Fast Planting This Week SHARE Previous articlePurdue University Partnering with USDA to Provide Economic Development Assistance to Rural AreasNext articleNew Planting Forecast-Same Old Spotty Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more

St. Stephen Presbyterian reopens Christian Education Building after vandalism

first_imgHunter Geisel TCU hangout closes its doors, college ministry considers buying property + posts ReddIt Students react to statewide texting and driving ban Mark Johnson: the Board of Trustees’ chairman and his vision for TCU printAfter seven months of fundraising and hard work, St. Stephen Presbyterian Church reopened a previously vandalized building on a gray Sunday afternoon.St. Stephen’s “Topping Out” celebrated the completion of all repairs and the restoration of its Christian Education Building, where the congregation’s youth went for Sunday school. The building was vandalized and set on fire around 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 8. Though the fire was put out quickly, the church was badly damaged and forced officials to cancel Sunday morning services.The vandals smashed many of the windows, set fires and trashed the building. Church members shared photos of the damage.Members of St. Stephen’s congregation and the surrounding community gathered for tours of the repaired classrooms, offices and other areas affected by the vandalism during the church’s celebration on Sunday.Rev. Fritz Ritsch said he felt blessed about the reopening.“We really feel like we’ve been so blessed by this entire process and by the way that the whole community kind of gathered around and supported us,” he said.Ritsch added that the restoration cost $600,000 and at least $60,000 was raised through people’s generosity. All of that money went straight into the repairs, mostly the window replacements.“The big problem was virtually every window in this building was broken,” Ritsch said. “And, if it wasn’t broken, it would probably have been needed to be replaced because we couldn’t find matching glass.”He revealed that window repair and replacement was the most expensive piece of the restoration.Emily Endres, one of St. Stephen’s elders, said the church’s insurance company was very helpful to the church and its restoration.“We had fabulous coverage with our insurance company,” she said. “They were just above and beyond in helping us.”Emily Endres said it was hard for the youth who grew up in the Christian Education Building and saw things that they’ve worked on for years now gone. However, Vendie Endres, a member of the church’s youth group, said she was looking forward to making new memories with the new building.“There were so many memories just from every little corner [had a memory] and so a lot of it was gone,” she said. “I’m glad with everything back to normal and we can get some those memories back and create news ones.”The Christian Education Building is now fully operational and you can visit St. Stephen’s website to find out times of service at www.ststephenpresbyterian.com.

Review: “White Boy Rick” fails to engage beyond glamorizing the ’80s drug scene

She’s a film and TV junkie, and when she’s not reporting, you can find her bingeing the latest on Netflix or catching up on her favorite podcasts. Official poster for “White Boy Rick.” (Photo courtesy of IMDb.) print“White Boy” Rick Wershe Jr.’s story is quite remarkable: He became an FBI informant and then a drug dealer all before his 16th birthday.But director Yann Demange’s version of the events isn’t remarkable at all. Instead, it’s a run-of-the-mill gangster/drug film.(Trailer courtesy of IMDb.)The title “White Boy Rick” would imply that there are a lot of racial issues to unpack in this film. However, the screenplay only brushes over what race relations looked like in America the ’80s.Rick Jr. gets his nickname by being the only white guy involved in a black drug gang. The drug scene here is portrayed as an alien world dominated solely by African Americans where a person like Rick Jr. is basically a tourist, ensnared by luxuries that a person from his socioeconomic background wouldn’t otherwise have access to. The film expects us to take Rick Jr.’s story at face value without giving us the opportunity to explore any deeper.The film glorifies criminal activity, glamorizing the extravagance and power that comes with it and tries to justify why Rick Jr. would want to seek this way of life. Almost all members of the black gang get arrested and sent to prison and so does Rick Jr.However, it’s implied that the black gang-bangers got what they deserved when we’re asked to sympathize with Rick Jr.’s life sentence.I was impressed by Richie Merritt as Rick Jr., and Matthew McConaughey as Rick Sr., who give stand out performances. Merritt was cast after a scout visited his high school, and from interviews, you can see how his natural swagger helped him get the role. His chemistry with McConaughey is undeniable. Their attention to each other and the bond they create seeps through the whole film, but that’s about as much praise as I can give.VerdictFor those of you expecting “White Boy Rick” to be like “Goodfellas,” also based on a true story, don’t get your hopes up. While it has its problems, the film, in general, is okay, but it’s not a career-defining role for anyone.5/10 World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Previous articleWhat we’re reading: To destroy or not to destroyNext articleTCU to ask faculty about diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in annual reports Michelle Carter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Metro to Debut “NoHo to Pasadena Express” March 1 to Better Connect San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys

It will also make limited stops in Burbank’s Media District and northern downtown Glendale. It will also provide a premium transit alternative to driving solo on the busy 134 Freeway.“This new express bus provides a missing link in Metro’s existing transit network,” said Mark Ridley-Thomas, L.A. County Supervisor and Metro Board Chair. “Now it will be much faster and easier for Metro riders to traverse these two valleys without having to go through downtown Los Angeles. It’s the latest example of how Metro is revolutionizing transit by fostering better connections throughout our county.”Also referred to as Line 501, the NoHo to Pasadena Express is different than other bus lines serving these valleys. It will operate seven days a week with high frequency – every 15 minutes during peak hours and every 30 minutes during off-peak periods so riders can reliably depend on getting to and from their destinations. Other bus services in this corridor only run during weekday peak periods and do not operate on weekends.“The new express line provides commuters in both Valleys a convenient way to travel between the Metro Red/Orange Lines in North Hollywood and the Metro Gold Line in Pasadena with stops at the Burbank Media District and North Downtown Glendale,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, a Metro Board Member. “Combined with a bus transfer at North Hollywood to Bob Hope Airport, this pilot project is the next step in our regional approach to a providing all county residents with a multi-modal system of buses, light rail, commuter rail and airports.”The express bus will utilize the carpool lanes on the 134 freeway, the main freeway connector between the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, which can save commuters time, particularly during off-peak hours. Travel times between North Hollywood and Pasadena are expected to be approximately 50 minutes during peak traffic times, but approximately 35 to 40 minutes during off-peak periods.“By design, this express bus was created specifically to solve the problem that vexes our multi-modal transit riders. It connects bus, light rail, commuter rail and airport travelers via Bob Hope Airport,” said Ara Najarian, Glendale Mayor and Metro Board Member. “If this line is successful, it could provide the justification we need to consider even greater transit investments in this corridor. I encourage cross-Valley commuters to try the 501 and see for themselves how it can make their transit experience better than ever before.”Line 501 will make six station stops: NoHo Station, Hollywood Way and Olive Avenue in Burbank, Buena Vista Street and Alameda Avenue in Burbank, Goode Avenue and Brand (westbound) and Sanchez and Brand (eastbound in Glendale) and the Gold Line’s Memorial Park and Del Mar Stations in Pasadena. Service will operate Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. Weekend service will run from 6:30 am until 9 p.m.“The NoHo-Pasadena Express eases congestion, connects communities, and links workers to jobs,” said Los Angeles Mayor and Metro Board Second Vice Chair Eric Garcetti. “Creating new options to connect residents to the places and people they love is part of our mission to keep this city on the move. I am proud we have found one more way to do just that.”The new line also provides convenient connections to St. Joseph’s Hospital, Disney Studios, and Embassy Suites by Hilton. All of these businesses have thousands of employees, and could benefit by encouraging workers, customers and patients alike to utilize the new express service.San Fernando Valley residents interested in attending the opening of the Metro Gold Line Extension, an 11.5-mile extension of rail service between eastern Pasadena and Azusa, are strongly encouraged to take the NoHo to Pasadena Express on Saturday, March 5. Metro will be providing free rides on the Metro Gold Line from noon to midnight.“Metro is doing exactly what’s needed by expanding valley to valley transit options in smart and efficient ways,” said Paul Krekorian, Metro Board Member and Los Angeles City Councilmember, who represents the North Hollywood area. “This new express line will serve thousands of riders in North Hollywood and beyond by providing yet another way to get around the San Fernando Valley and creating a critical connection with rail and bus lines in the San Gabriel Valley.”The line will be evaluated as a six-month pilot project that is expected to cost $1.2 million to operate. After six months, Metro will review ridership and determine if the service requires any changes. The line is expected to carry at least 1,750 riders daily. The base fare is $2.50. Transit riders can use their TAP cards to get two-hour free transfers to other Metro lines.Other municipal bus operators connecting with the line include the following:Burbank Bob Hope Airport and Santa Clarita ConnectionsThe Burbank Bus NoHo provides easy weekday connection to the Burbank Bob Hope Airport to Airport Shuttle, located at Bay 6. The airport shuttle operates every 15 to 20 minutes, 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the fare is $1 or free with an EZ Pass.

It is free to the public.Vicki Pritchett, Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center executive director, said teachers from several schools in Pike County attended the ArtBridges workshop last summer and explored ways to integrate art and poetry into their classroom studies.“The students wrote haiku poems and rhyming poems in the classroom,” Pritchett said. “The staff from the Johnson Center for the Arts then went into the classrooms and assisted the students in making clay frames for their poems.”Walter Black, ceramist, fired the frames and the students framed their poems for installation at The Studio.“The frames complement the poems and it’s exciting to see how the two work together,” Pritchett said. “We invite everyone to visit The Studio on East Walnut Street across from the Johnson Center for the Arts during TroyFest. The poems are a lot of fun to read and the clay frames are great artwork.”The schools participating are Charles Henderson High School, Charles Henderson Middle School, Troy Elementary School, Pike County Elementary School, Banks School and Goshen Elementary School.The TroyFest Student Art Show is featured at the Johnson Center along with the CHHS Senior Art Show. Everyone is invited to also view those exhibits during TroyFest.The Studio and Johnson Center hours are 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. today and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday.There is no admission charge to the exhibitions.
