Because I’ve seen them do it. I’ve seen them perform on a day-to-day basis here, all the staff and players. We have to be more consistent as coaches delivering the correct message to get the change we want to get and also deliver the content at training. But I’d be saying that even if we won four [Rugby Championship] matches, not two, because the goal is to win six.”At the press conference Cheika named his 31-man squad for their upcoming match against the All Blacks and their were some surprising call ups. For example, uncapped players Jed Holloway, Jake Gordon and Angus Cottrell are set to tour, and importantly Australia’s midfield gets a boost with the return of Samu Kerevi. Flanker Jack Dempsey also returns after an injury layoff.Sekope Kepu is going to collect his 100th cap for the Wallabies provided he makes the match day squad.Cheika is yet to name his full squad for their matches against Wales, Italy and England in November.

photographs: Kai NakamuraPhotographs: Kai NakamuraSave this picture!© Kai Nakamura“Double Helix House” is a small house which is located in Yanaka, Tokyo. There are many old wooden houses and historical temples which were left unscathed by war. This creates attractive atmosphere among alleys and small galleries. We proposed that this house should be built in this kind of atmosphere, with attractive buildings all around. The site is a flag-shaped place with two narrow streets in front of it. It is surrounded by neighborhood houses and looks like a secret garden, but at the same time, it feels as if it is a part of the streets.Save this picture!SketchInspired by the site, we got an idea of a composition of the house. There are 2 simple elements, a white core and an alley-like corridor winding up around it. In the white core, there are spaces for a dining room, a kitchen, bedrooms, a living room and a bathroom. In the corridor, we made spaces for the family, a small library, and a study with desks and chairs. On the roof of the corridor is a terrace and two helixes from the inside and outside are intertwining.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kai NakamuraThe composition of this house is quite simple, however once you step inside, you can feel its lightness, darkness, narrowness, width and even the speed of your step. We believe that we could design a house which cannot be explained by the common sense of length or width. This is a house with a new sense of depth.Save this picture!SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessToulkarem Courthouse / AAU ANASTASSelected ProjectsCornerstone / designband YOAPSelected Projects Share Double Helix House / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsSave this projectSaveDouble Helix House / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects Houses Architects: Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects Area Area of this architecture project Double Helix House / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects Photographs CopyAbout this officeOnishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTaitoJapanPublished on November 20, 2015Cite: “Double Helix House / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects” 19 Nov 2015.

Previous articleDo or Die Week for Indiana CornNext articleFarm Bureau and Soybean Association Applaud Introduction of PNTR for Russia Legislation Andy Eubank USDA’s Crop Production report released Tuesday shows a one-percent decline in projected winter wheat production. The forecast is now for 1.68-billion bushels which is 13-percent above 2011. The U.S. yield is forecast at 47.3-bushels per acre. That’s 1.1-bushels more than last year – but down three-tenths from last month. Expected area for harvest is unchanged from May at 35.6-million acres.Hard Red Winter wheat is down one-percent from last month at 1.02-billion bushels. White Winter is also down one-percent at 231-million bushels. Fourteen-point-one million of those bushels are Hard White. The remaining 217-million bushels are Soft White. USDA has slightly increased Soft Red Winter production to 428-million bushels.The all orange forecast is 8.96-million tons – an increase of one-percent from the May forecast and the 2010-11 final utilization. Florida’s all orange forecast is 6.58-million tons – also a one-percent increase from May.WASDE at a GlanceThe latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates were released Tuesday. It is noted that because planting is still underway in the Northern Hemisphere and is several months away in the Southern Hemisphere the projections are highly tentative.WHEAT: Projected U.S. wheat supplies for 2012/13 are lowered 51 million bushels with reduced carryin and lower forecast winter wheat production. Beginning stocks are lowered 40 million bushels with a 10-million-bushel increase in food use and a 30-million-bushel increase in exports for 2011/12. Exports are increased based on the strong pace of U.S. shipments during the final weeks of the old-crop marketing year.U.S. all wheat production for 2012/13 is projected at 2,234 million bushels, down 11 million. Ending stocks for 2012/13 are projected 41 million bushels lower. The projected range for the 2012/13 season average farm price is raised 10 cents on both ends to $5.60 to $6.80 per bushel. This remains well below the record $7.25 per bushel projected for 2011/12.COARSE GRAINS: U.S. feed grain supplies for 2012/13 are virtually unchanged as adjustments to 2011/12 balance sheets are largely offsetting and projected 2012/13 production and use are unchanged on the month. Projected 2012/13 season average price ranges for corn, sorghum, barley, and oats are all unchanged.Adjustments to corn usage for 2011/12 reflect the latest ethanol production and trade data. Corn used to produce ethanol in 2011/12 is projected 50 million bushels higher. The higher corn use projection assumes slightly lower ethanol production during the June-August quarter as compared with the same period last year. Corn exports are projected 50 million bushels lower as shipments and sales continue to fall off of the pace needed to reach last month’s projection. Tight domestic supplies and increased competition, especially from Brazil, are also expected to reduce U.S. export prospects during the summer months. Projected corn ending stocks for 2011/12 are unchanged, as is the 2011/12 season average farm price which remains at $5.95 to $6.25 per bushel.Sorghum exports for 2011/12 are projected 10 million bushels lower, but offset by a 10-million-bushel increase in expected feed and residual use. Projected barley imports are raised 4 million bushels and exports are lowered 3 million bushels boosting ending stocks 7 million bushels. Oats ending stocks are projected 10 million bushels lower with projected imports lowered 15 million bushels and feed and residual use reduced 5 million bushels. Projected 2011/12 farm prices for all three feed grains are unchanged.Global coarse grain supplies for 2012/13 are projected 4.8 million tons higher with increases in corn beginning stocks and production. Global corn beginning stocks are increased 1.6 million tons mostly reflecting higher 2011/12 production for Brazil and China. Brazil corn production is raised 2 million bushels for 2011/12 to a record 69 million tons. China’s 2011/12 corn production is raised 1.0 million tons in line with recent revisions to official government estimates.Global 2012/13 coarse grain trade is projected higher this month on increased imports and exports of corn. Global corn consumption is increased 2.4 million tons. Global corn ending stocks are projected 3.4 million tons higher. Of the increase, 2.0 million tons are for China and 1.0 million tons are for Brazil.RICE: A reduced 2011/12 U.S. rice ending stocks forecast results in a tighter supply outlook for 2012/13. Beginning stocks for 2012/13 are reduced 4.5 million cwt to 29.5 million—down 39 percent from the previous year, and the lowest beginning stocks since 2004/05. Production and imports for 2012/13 are unchanged at 183.0 million cwt and 22.0 million, respectively. On the 2012/13 use side, domestic and residual use is lowered 1.0 million cwt to 122.0 million because of an expected decline in rice used in the brewing of beer—a trend observed in recent years. U.S. 2012/13 ending stocks are projected at 25.5 million cwt, down 1.5 million from last month.Smaller projected 2011/12 U.S. imports along with larger exports reduce 2011/12 ending stocks by 4.5 million cwt. U.S. rice imports for 2011/12 are projected at 20.0 million cwt, down 0.5 million from a month ago based on U.S. Bureau of the Census data through March. Rice exports for 2011/12 are raised 4.0 million cwt to 101.0 million because of a significant pickup in sales and shipments in April and early May, and an increase in food-aid. The 2012/13 long-grain U.S. season average farm price is projected at $14.50 to $15.50 per cwt, combined medium- and short-grain rice price is $17.25 to $18.25 per cwt, and the all rice price is $15.30 to $16.30 per cwt. The midpoint of the 2011/12 all rice, long-grain, and combined medium- and short-grain prices are unchanged from a month ago, however, the price range is narrowed 10 cents on each end of the range for each.Global 2012/13 rice supply and use is little changed from a month ago. Global rice production is projected at a record 466.5 million tons, up less than 100,000 tons from last month. Global 2012/13 exports are raised nearly 1.0 million tons mainly due to an increase for India. India’s 2011/12 exports are raised to a record 8.0 million tons. Global ending stocks for 2012/13 are projected at 104.2 million tons, down 0.7 million from last month, due primarily to a reduction for India.OILSEEDS: This month’s U.S. soybean supply and use projections for 2012/13 include lower beginning and ending stocks and reduced use. Lower beginning stocks reflect increased export and crush projections for 2011/12. Soybean exports for 2011/12 are raised 20 million bushels to 1.335 billion bushels reflecting increased global import demand, led mainly by higher projected imports for China. Soybean crush is raised 15 million bushels mostly due to stronger domestic soybean meal use. Soybean ending stocks for 2011/12 are projected at 175 million bushels, down 35 million. With reduced supplies for 2012/13, soybean exports are projected at 1.485 billion bushels, down 20 million. Soybean crush is also projected lower due to reduced domestic soybean meal use. Ending stocks for 2012/13 are projected at 140 million bushels, down 5 million from last month.The U.S. season average soybean price is projected at $12.00 to $14.00 per bushel. Soybean meal and oil prices are projected at $335 to $365 per ton and 52.5 to 56.5 cents per pound, respectively.Global oilseed production for 2012/13 is projected at 470.8 million tons, down 0.7 million from last month, mainly due to lower soybean and cottonseed production.Source: USDA USDA and WASDE Numbers Released SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA and WASDE Numbers Released By Andy Eubank – Jun 12, 2012 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter
31.05.10 – Israeli military prevents media from covering assault on humanitarian flotillaReporters Without Borders strongly condemns the censorship attempts that accompanied today’s deadly assault by Israel on a flotilla that was carrying humanitarian aid, 750 pro-Palestinian activists and several journalists to the Gaza Strip. “We deplore this assault, which left a heavy toll of dead and wounded,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The journalists who were on the flotilla to cover the humanitarian operation were put in harm’s way by this disproportionate reaction. We urge the Israeli authorities to release the detained journalists and allow them unrestricted access to the Gaza Strip. The international community needs accurate information about this Palestinian Territory.”At least 19 passengers were killed and 36 were wounded when Israeli naval commandoes stormed the “freedom flotilla.” It was transporting humanitarian supplies and consumers goods for the Gaza population, which has been under an Israeli blockade for nearly four years.“Hundreds of Israeli soldiers attacked the flotilla and the captain of our boat is seriously injured,” Al Jazeera correspondent Abbas Nasser reported in his last call to his TV station’s headquarters in Qatar before communications were severed.Two Bulgarian journalists working for the Bulgarian television station BTV were arrested during the assault. Bulgarian news media identified them as reporter Svetoslav Ivanov and cameraman Valentin Vassilev. Aaj TV presenter Talat Hussain was also on the flotilla. There is still no news of him. The Israeli authorities have forbidden all the journalists to enter the Gaza Strip.Israeli public radio reported in the course of the morning that the authorities had banned the media from providing any information about the dead and wounded, who were taken to hospitals in Israel. The censorship order was lifted at around midday.

Pasadena saw six new COVID-19 infections and no new fatalities on Tuesday, as health officials said local nail salons would remain closed for the time being, despite state public health officials removing the statewide ban on their operation.The new infections brought Pasadena’s total case count to 2,536, while the death toll remained at 122.Twenty-five COVID-19 patients were being treated at Huntington Hospital, according to hospital data.And while the California Department of Public Health revised its order to allow for nail salons to resume operating throughout the state in a modified fashion, with county approval, the ban on such businesses remained in effect in Los Angeles County as of Tuesday evening.The L.A. County Department of Public Health “will be consulting with the Board of Supervisors to determine the timing of adopting changes to the County Health Officer Order that would allow nail salons to resume modified indoor operations,” the agency said in a written statement..Once county approval to resume running nail salons is granted, the Pasadena Public Health Department will have to decide whether to follow suit, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.Meanwhile, county officials reported 810 new cases of COVID-19 and 40 additional deaths on Tuesday. L.A. County had recorded 262,133 infections and 6,401 deaths since the onset of the pandemic.A downward trend of hospitalizations continued to encourage health officials.The L.A. County Department of Public Health said 745 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized on Tuesday, with 28% of them in intensive care units.“The County continues to see the number of daily COVID-19 hospitalizations decline from the July 20 peak of a 3-day average of over 2,200 hospitalizations,” the statement said. “Even in the last month, since the end of August, there has been a significant decrease from an average of 1,200 daily hospitalizations to the average this past week of under 800 hospitalizations per day. We are hoping that we do not see an increase in the number of daily hospitalizations in the upcoming weeks associated with activities that occurred over the Labor Day holiday.”Los Angeles County had met the criteria to transition from the state’s most severe COVID-19 county monitoring tier, or “widespread” virus transmission, to the second-highest level, or “substantial” transmission.But under state guidelines, the county must remain at the level for two weeks before formally switching tiers, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said.“Public Health is heartened that Los Angeles County has met the thresholds that may allow us in the near future to move into Tier 2 of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. We plan to closely monitor our data to understand how effectively we are slowing the spread of COVID-19 after the Labor Day holiday and the impact of re-opening schools for high need students and re-opening hair salons for indoor operations,” she said.“We thank Los Angeles County residents, workers, and businesses who have continued to take the steps needed to slow the spread, including wearing their face coverings, physically distancing, and not gathering with people outside their household,” Ferrer added.The county’s positivity rate was 9%, with more than 2.56 million tests administered.Statewide, the California Department of public health announced 2,630 new detected COVID-19 infections and 53 new deaths, raising the state’s totals to 784,324 cases of the virus and 15,071 fatalities.The state’s positivity rate over the prior seven days had reached 2.8%, while the 14-day rate was 3%, the CDPH said in a written statement.As of Tuesday, Los Angeles County represented 33% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 42% of the state’s total fatalities.

ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Hurricane Sally is taking aim on the Gulf Coast where it’s expected to bring coastal flooding and dangerous storm surge.Sally is expected to crawl very slowly across the northern Gulf of Mexico over the next 24 hours and will make landfall some time Wednesday morning with possibly Category 1 hurricane winds near 85 mph.As Sally makes landfall on the Alabama and Mississippi border on Wednesday, the highest storm surge should be from Louisiana into Mississippi and east to Mobile Bay, Alabama, where the water is expected to rise 6 to 9 feet.Storm surge of up to 4 feet is possible even in Florida and parts of Louisiana’s Lake Pontchartrain, which is located on the northern side of New Orleans.Rainfall totals could reach near 30 inches in eastern Mississippi, Alabama and into the Florida panhandle.Sally will then crawl inland over Alabama and Georgia, where historic rainfall and flooding are possible.Up to a foot of rain could fall from central Alabama to Georgia and northern South Carolina, including Atlanta and even into Charlotte, North Carolina, where major flash flooding is expected.Sally is the seventh hurricane so far this season; the average at this time is six.Sally will be third hurricane making landfall along the Gulf Coast this season.Sally will also be the fourth hurricane to make landfall in the U.S this season. The last time we had more than four hurricanes to make landfall in the U.S. was in 2005 when there were five, including Hurricane Katrina.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
The company carried out installation of a 343-tonne weighing ultra-deepwater structure, among others, for the ultra-deep-water project in the Bay of Bengal McDermott employed the DLV 2000 offshore supply ship for executing the R Cluster gas project in India. (Credit: McDermott) McDermott International has wrapped up the R Cluster field development project for Reliance Industries in the KG-D6 block in the Krishna Godavari Basin, offshore India.The US-based contractor said that it has achieved pre-commissioning for the ultra-deep-water gas field, which produced its first gas in December 2020.Located off the coast of Kakinada town, the R Cluster field is contained in water depth of over 2,000m. The project features a subsea production system that is tied back to KG D6 control and riser platform (CRP), nearly 60kms apart, through a subsea pipeline.McDermott Asia Pacific senior vice president Ian Prescott said: “The safe and successful completion of Reliance’s KG-D6 R Cluster project is a testament to McDermott’s subsea experience in the Bay of Bengal.“Pre-commissioning and ready for startup was achieved despite difficult circumstances—two severe cyclones during the first campaign and, in the second, navigating the challenging conditions of COVID-19.”McDermott built yard facility in India for the projectFor the R Cluster project, McDermott constructed a yard facility in India, which was used for the fabrication of risers, jumpers, and marine logistics support.The project was made up of two offshore campaigns.McDermott revealed that the first campaign saw the Derrick Lay Vessel (DLV) 2000 offshore supply ship complete the company’s first piggy-back pipelay in S-lay mode in water depth of 1,300m.The first campaign also included the installation of a 343-ton weighing ultra-deepwater structure.McDermott, under the same campaign also installed various six-inch pipelines, pipeline end terminations (PLETs), and manifolds in water depths up to 1,965m. The company also installed what is claimed to be the longest dual riser in India.Under the second campaign, the company installed manifolds, manifold piles, flowlines, S-mode and J-mode PLETs, jumpers, in-line structures, and umbilicals.It also carried out major brownfield modifications to the KG D6 control and riser platform.The R Cluster project is estimated to reach plateau gas production of nearly 12.9 million standard cubic meters per day (mmscmd) in the course of this year.Reliance Industries is partnered by BP in the offshore gas project. The partners are also developing the Satellites Cluster and MJ gas projects in the same offshore block.The combined investment for the three gas projects is INR350bn ($4.77bn).
