It’s a huge boost for the city in terms of sports tourism and has been one of the stand-out individual elements that have combined into the great Limerick success story over the  past decade or so.“We were delighted to take up on the opportunuty to sponsor the ‘Run for Fun’ because it promotes healthy activity amongst children and that’s something as a healthcare provider that we are very keen to promote. Getting children involved in exercise can introduce them to something that will stay with them for much of their  lives and reduce health risks. It’s also good for their wider wellbeing, their confidence, things that are very important to work on from an early age.”REPRO FREE 09/03/2020 Runners Dylan Barry, aged 7, and Ella Barry aged 5, along with Limerick hurling captain Declan Hannon and Jason Kenny, Hospital Manager, Bon Secours Hospital Limerick at Barringtons.

Bon Secours Hospital Limerick ticks that box. It has a great heritage here in the city given the hospital’s origins here  and they are a healthcare provider operating to the highest standards.“We were delighted to have them as title sponsors of the Sunday event prior to this and delighted that they have stayed with us to sponsor this very important ‘Run for Fun’. It is what it says on the tin. We want to introduce them to healthy activity, to having fun doing it and that’s what the event is all about.“We’ve seen their delight at crossing the finishing line knowing, as they do that, it’s not a competitive event, that everyone is a winner. And we’ve seen the delight of their parents at watching the children getting out there, participating in such a healthy activity and enjoying themselves in the process.”REPRO FREE 09/03/2020 Runners, from left to right, Alan Cleary, aged 12, Sam Gilmore, aged 10, Dylan Gilmore, aged 12, along with Limerick hurlers Will O’Donoghue and Diarmaid Byrnes and manager John Kiely.

We have to encourage our children to be involved first and foremost.“It cannot be about competitiveness for them, it must be about fun when they are this stage of life. I commend John Cleary and his team for pulling this event together and Bon Secours Hospital Limerick at Barringtons for sponsoring it.“They have put their support behind Limerick hurling through their sponsorship of the senior hurling club championship over the past year m and they must be commended again on getting involved in another very positive Initiative with the Run for Fun.”The post Bon Secours to sponsor children’s ‘Run for Fun’ on May Bank Holiday weekend appeared first on Sporting Limerick.

Brazil Vs Nigeria: More Than a Friendly Encounter

first_imgIn spite of the array of stars at their disposal, Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazil international defender Marquinhos has warned his side that they must work hard if they were to defeat Nigeria in Singapore on Sunday.Marquinhos told the media that, Nigeria is one of the best teams on the continent and they are aware of the threat they poised.”We have to make a big game, impose our rhythm. They are very intense opponents, aggressive, with physical imposition and technical game too,” he said.Paris Saint Germain defender also identified Victor Osimhen as Nigeria’s most dangerous player ahead of Sunday’s international friendly between the two countries.“Nigeria have very physical and skillful players. Osimhen has done well at Lille. Virtually unknown before his transfer but now everyone knows him that shows he can be very dangerous. We have to put an eye on him”, Marquinhos told reporters at the Brazil training base in Singapore.Corroborating the Brazilian defender’s position on Osimhen former Nigerian international, Henry Nwosu believes Osimhen has the potential to meltdown the defense of the Samba Boys.“I am proud that we have a quality striker in Victor Osimhen who has been banging in the goals for Lille in the French League,” Nwosu told“Playing in his first season, Osimhen has shown his determination to achieve greatness and I am glad he’s in good form to face Brazil in Sunday’s international friendly encounter in Singapore.“No doubt, he will cause all sorts of problems for the Brazilian defenders regardless of their experience. He has what it takes to shoot down the Brazilians and further put himself in the spotlight of the round leather game.Brazil’s Assistant Coach Cleber Xavier however picked Alex Iwobi as the most dangerous player in the current Super Eagles team, saying the Everton man plays more of an inside role as a second striker.“At Nigeria, Iwobi plays more of an inside role as a second striker than at Everton. He is the link in the counter attack, drags opponents out of position and infiltrates well in the box,” stressed Xavier.“Nigeria defend less than Africa’s topmost team, Senegal. The Senegalese are more about positioning with Idris Gueye marking strongly,” Xavier told BBC.Despite playing 72 hours ahead of Nigeria match Chukwueze believes the Copa America kings have enough quality to give Nigeria a good game come match day.“That’s a big game to look forward to in Singapore and I think it’s going to be a tough match,” the Villarreal forward noted, even as he was quick to add. “I don’t know how it’s going to be but I’m confident we are going to make our country proud because everybody is going to look up to this game.“It’s going to be a tough game but everybody would see what we are made of when we play against Brazil. I believe this set of Super Eagles is very good; it’s not just that we are good but we are committed. “We have the fighting spirit to do everything possible to remain one of the best teams in the world and I think we are going to do well against Brazil,” Chukwueze said.Meanwhile, Arsenal legend Kanu Nwankwo has said the Super Eagles are under pressure to give a good performance when they meet Brazil in Singapore.Kanu who stars in Nigeria’s 4-3 famous victory over in Brazilians back in 1996, Atlanta Olympic games, opined that Nigerian football fans want to see the Gernot Rohr’s squad give the Brazilians a good run for their money.“There is a lot of pressure because everybody loves football, they don’t want to hear that Nigeria went to a game and lost.”“I don’t think people will really appreciate the boys if they lost in a friendly game, that’s how it is here. The boys have to take it on board and ensure that every game they play, they have to do well.”The two-time African footballer of the year also advised Rohr and his boys to take the game to the Brazilians and give a World Cup final performance, because of the rivalry that exists between both sides.“Playing against Brazil will show the level of football they are playing and where they are, and if they can beat Brazil, the confidence and belief of the boys will grow.”“And for me, it’s always tough when Nigeria and Brazil play each other; whoever will represent us should know it’s not a friendly game.” He concluded.Super Eagles arrived Singapore on Wednesday and the Director of Communications, Nigeria Football Federation, Ademola Olajire, said in a statement announcing the list of invited players said. “All invited players were expected to arrive in Singapore on Wednesday, October 9.”Nigerian coaching crew led by Gernot Rohr and the rest of the 23 players invited converged at Fairmont Hotel on Wednesday, and the team had their first training section on Thursday.Brazil defeated the Super Eagles 3-0 the last time both teams met in a friendly encounter in 2003 at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.Sunday’s game which is billed to hold at the Singapore National Stadium, Kallang will kick-off at 1 pm Nigerian time.Singaporean Jansen Foo has been appointed as referee for the prestige international friendly match. Foo will be assisted by compatriots Abdul Hannan (assistant referee 1), Ong Chai Lee (assistant referee 2) and G. Letchman (fourth official).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Flying Eagles at training session in Poland. Most Nigeria’s major encounters with Brazil have all been at the Olympics Games and once at the U21 World Championship in 1989 in Chile, aside the friendly game in Abuja. However, it was not until the Atlanta ’96 Olympics when Nigeria came from 3-1 down to defeat a Ronaldo Delima inspired Brazil 4-3, that a football rivalry between the two countries was truely born. That is why Sunday’s encounter between the Selecao and the Super Eagles will be more than a friendly and the roll call of players billed for the match attest to itFrom the most expensive footballer in the world-Neymar to their COPA America winning captain Dani Alves, Brazil have left no one in doubt they are not in Singapore for a tea party.The game is coming 23 years and a couple of months after Nigeria spectacularly ejected Brazil from the Centennial Olympic Games men’s football tournament in Atlanta, Georgia at the semi final stage. It is also the last and icing on the cake of a two-match schedule for the five-time world champions in Singapore, which begins with a clash with the Teranga Lions of Senegal on Thursday.last_img read more

Privileged Planet Website Opens

first_imgA website featuring a new book by Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards, The Privileged Planet, has opened.  The subtitle of the book is How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery.  The authors take issue with pessimistic views, such as those of Steven Weinberg and Carl Sagan, that our planet is “pointless” or just a “lost speck of cosmic dust” in the universe.  Au contraire, the authors argue with many interesting observations: our planet appears to have been intelligently designed not only for our existence and well-being, but to maximize our ability to comprehend the creation.    The website also highlights a documentary movie by the same title due to be released soon by Illustra Media, producer of the popular documentary Unlocking the Mystery of Life.  The film will feature Robert Jastrow, Paul Davies, Donald Brownlee, and other prominent astronomers and philosophers.  A video clip of the opening is available on the website.  The book and film are being promoted by the Discovery Institute, an intelligent design think tank.This is not a typical creationist book or film.  To the extent it argues that our universe and earth appear designed for life and discovery, it makes an old anthropic argument stronger, adding an intriguing original point that our position makes science and discovery possible, as if that were the Creator’s intent.  Don’t expect it to argue for a view of special creation by the Judeo-Christian God, or to argue for a Biblical history or chronology.  It should, however, be a valuable resource to impel knowledgeable skeptics to consider the evidence for design.  Dr. Gonzalez and Jay Richards have impeccable credentials and know their specialties well.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Georgia State students take a closer look at SA

first_imgThe best way to get a better understanding of how a country works is to go and take a closer look yourself. These were the sentiments shared by a group of students from the US’s Georgia State University who visited the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Constitution Hill with Brand South Africa.A diverse group of students from the USA’s Georgia State University joined Brand South Africa at the Nelson Mandela Foundation and took part in enlightening discussions about South Africa, its history and how it has become one of the leading countries on the African continent. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)There is much that South Africa has to offer its visitors, be it breathtaking scenery both natural and manmade, its warm and welcoming people, or the investment opportunities available in a wide range of sectors.This was the message shared with a group of students from the US’s Georgia State University (GSU), by Brand South Africa at the Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) on Friday, 10 August 2017.While at the foundation, the American students learned more about the life of Nelson Mandela and how his efforts, coupled with those of political activists such as Steve Boko and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, helped to shape the country into the democracy it is today.The conversations held at the foundation gave the students insight into how South Africa had been and continued to grow as a nation, highlighting its strengths while acknowledging its shortcomings.“South Africa is amazing,” said Master’s student Arthur Kiboit. “Just trying to imagine what people went through and the fact that they were able to forgive and live together. That’s just so strong.”While at the foundation, the American students learned more about the life of Nelson Mandela and how his efforts, coupled with those of political activists such as Steve Boko and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, helped to shape the country into the democracy it is today.

For instance, I studied business and it’s very attractive, as you can see multinational companies from the US are based here.“I work for UPS; UPS is based here, and so South Africa is definitely a place that people should come to visit.”Another Master’s student, Alicia Dawkins, was quick to notice just how developed South Africa was, saying that “even though an ocean separates us, we’re very similar and have dealt with very similar things”.Doctoral student Thais Council said: “I’ve always romanticised Africa a lot in my mind through the books that I’ve read.”To anyone still wondering whether or not to visit South Africa, Council said “pack all your clothes.“Also bring your appetite because there’s really great food here, and bring your best camera so you don’t miss some of these great shots here in South Africa, some of the best I’ve seen in my life.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Needless to say, many of these factors change from minute to minute.We could describe the indoor conditions, which include the air temperature (remembering, of course, that the air temperature near the floor may be different from air temperature near the ceiling), the relative humidity, and the mean radiant temperature of the surfaces in the room.We could list the construction details of all of the many layers of the wall assembly, including the vapor permeance of each layer, the R-value of each layer, the air permeance of each layer, the moisture-storage characteristics of each layer, the location and size of the wall’s cracks and holes, the location and size of any windows, the leakiness of the window flashing, the SHGC and U-factors of the window glazing, the distance from the top of each window to the roof overhang, the width of the roof overhang, the depth of the rainscreen gap, the size of the ventilation openings at the base of the rainscreen gap, the size of the ventilation openings at the top of the rainscreen gap, and the orientation of the wall — that is, the cardinal direction it faces.If we know all of this information, and more, it might be possible to determine how heat and moisture move through the wall — in other words, to describe the wall’s hygrothermal performance.Then again, it might not.The fact that… last_img read more
