Williams wins third straight MoBay City Run title

first_imgRonique Williams underlined his utter dominance by winning a third MoBay City Run overall title yesterday. It was brilliant run from the defending two-time winner, who used his experience to win the 10 kilometre road race. Williams’ time of 36 minutes 10 seconds was too great a mountain for the other competitors with none able to break the 40-minute barrier. Andrew Gayle ran 41:01 for second, while Carlyle Russell crossed the finish line in third place with a time of 41:20. A jubilant Williams said the win was the most challenging of his three titles, mainly because he was tired from running another event the day before. “This was the most difficult one of the three years that I have won; but I was strong enough and quick enough to still post a good time and win a third MoBay City Run title,” he said. The female 10K title went to Chris-Ann Lewis, who stopped the clock at 45 minutes and 11 seconds for first place, while Karlene Blagrove ran second in 47: 09 seconds. Third went to Pauline Murphy in a time of 48: 17 seconds. Juliett Dinnal took the female top position in the 5K run, while Horace Burey stayed true to form in landing the men’s equivalent. The event which attracted close to 4,000 participants in the 5K Run/Walk and 10K run races, also saw perennial senior female champion 76-year-old Gerline Nelson once again making her mark in the 5K run. It was Williams’ day however and he defended his title with guts and class before promising to return next year to do it all over again. “I love this event; I look forward to participating in the MoBay City Run because of this road race stands for,” said Williams. “It is a very important event and it puts me in the spotlight, which encourages me to keep doing what I do. I will be back next year,” he added. MoBay City Run is a charity road race from which funds will go to needy students attending the three tertiary institutions, UWI-Western Campus, University of Technology (Western Campus) and the Montego Bay Community College.last_img read more

O’Meara overcomes cuts to secure win

first_imgSteve O’Meara overcame cuts over both eyes to make a winning return to the ring, beating Chas Symonds on points on the undercard of Nathan Cleverly’s world title fight at Wembley Arena.Clashes of heads left O’Meara with a cut over the right eye in the opening round and then a nasty injury over the left, which led to moments of concern towards the end of the third.After the ring doctor allowed O’Meara to carry on before the start of the fourth, the West Drayton man boxed at longer range for the rest of the six-round contest and was a 58-56 winner after having a point deducted for a low blow late in the fight.It was the Shepherd’s Bush-born light-middleweight’s first outing since an unsuccessful attempt to win the Commonwealth title in December.“I half-panicked and thought there’s no way I was going to let the fight get stopped, so I tried to get him out of there,” he told West London Sport.“That was probably not the best idea and they weren’t the tactics when I went in there with, but I felt I had to do something.“He was catching me but not hurting me, so I neglected my defence a bit and was prepared to take one to give one to try and stop him.”Mitchell Smith enjoyed a great win.And O’Meara admitted he was worried when the referee seemed inclined to stop the fight before the beginning of the fourth round.He said: “I was pleading with the referee. I said to him: ‘I can see fine’ and he wasn’t listening to me.“The first person you should ask is the fighter and see if he can see. At least test me rather than telling me I can’t see.“It didn’t seem like he was on my side at all and he’s meant to be caring for the fighters.“When the crowd comes and pays money to see fights, the last thing they want is to see a fighter get stopped prematurely on a cut.“The referee didn’t seem to give a monkey’s about that and if he’d stopped that fight I’d have been really disappointed in him and in boxing in general.“I know next time to stick to the gameplan and not panic, but the ref didn’t help with that panic because I saw him keep looking at the doc.“The ref would have helped if he’d have been a bit calmer. He looked over the doctor twice and as a fighter you know that’s not good.“I told the doc I was okay and luckily he agreed with me. I’m pleased to get the win.”Earlier in the evening, Harrow’s super-featherweight prospect Mitchell Smith enhanced his growing reputation by destroying Gavin Reid in the first round.Wembley welterweight Gary Corcoran also maintained his unbeaten record, comfortably beating Tottenham’s Mark McKray, but there was a controversial defeat for Northolt light-middleweight Ryan Toms.See also:Smith dazzles Wembley with quick winTrio to feature on Wembley Arena 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Passivhaus Buildings Don’t Heat Themselves

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img For years, the English-language website of the Passivhaus Institut in Germany provided this definition: “A passive house is a building in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without active heating and cooling systems. The house heats and cools itself, hence ‘passive.’”The idea of a house that “heats and cools itself” has a certain PR value, of course. The only problem is that it doesn’t exist. Excluding a few buildings in areas with a very mild climate (for example, in San Diego or Honolulu), no one has yet managed to build a house that heats and cools itself. That’s why Passivhaus buildings always need an active heating system, an active cooling system, or both.Until recently, most of the people complaining about exaggerations from the Passivhaus Institut were cynics and curmudgeons like me. Now, however, even Passivhaus fans have begun grumbling about the fallout from the false claim that Passivhaus buildings don’t need heating or cooling systems.The myth is responsible for a great many misunderstandings — misunderstandings that can in some cases lead to bad building designs.Allen Gilliland is the founder of One Sky Homes, a design/build firm in San Jose, California. His company specializes in Passivhaus construction, and Gilliland designs all of his projects’ HVAC systems. In a recent PowerPoint presentation that he shared with a monthly meeting of a group called Passive House California, Gilliland expressed his frustration with the idea that a Passivhaus building “heats and cools itself.” In one of his slides, Gilliland warned, “Beware the Passivhaus Kool Aid: Hyperbole, careless references, and hearsay are everywhere.”It is often said that a building with a low rate of air leakage and above-average amounts of insulation is inherently more comfortable for occupants than an average building. While this is usually… last_img read more

Tendulkar, Zaheer to play for Mumbai in Ranji Trophy opener

first_imgSachin Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan are all set to return to domestic cricket, playing for Mumbai in their Ranji Trophy opener against Railways at the Wankhede Stadium here in the first week of November.”Sachin and Zaheer are likely to play in Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy opener at the Wankhede Stadium. They have expressed their interest to play in the game,” said MCA’s joint secretary Nitin Dalal. The opening game between Mumbai and Railways is scheduled from November 2 to 5.Tendulkar, 39, had last played for his home association in the final against Uttar Pradesh in January 2009, at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi Stadium when the matches in the tournament was held at neutral venues. Though he managed only single digit scores in both innings, Mumbai walloped UP by 243 runs to clinch the title for the 38th time.Zaheer KhanClick here to EnlargeTendulkar had played in the semi-final too against Saurashtra and notched a century at Chennai. Zaheer, 34, played two games last season to get into the groove for the international matches after an injury lay-off. He played against Orissa at Cuttack and against Saurashtra at Rajkot, his 27th and last appearance in Mumbai colours.The presence of Tendulkar and Zaheer for the tournament opener would be a major boost for Mumbai, who would be without their most experienced Ranji batsman Wasim Jaffer for the first three games as he is set to go on Haj pilgrimage.”Jaffer told me he would not be available for the first four games but has changed his mind and said today he will be unavailable for only the first three games,” informed Dalal.advertisementJaffer will miss the home game against Railways, the second match against holders Rajasthan at Udaipur (Nov 9-12) and the third tie against Hyderabad in the latter’s backyard (Nov 24-27). The 34-year-old former India opener is available for the fourth tie at home against Bengal (Dec 1-4).last_img read more

India Today Woman Summit 2014: Heroines Forever

first_imgLaxmi says that the psychological and physical effects of an acid attack hits you like a ton of bricks. Her body felt like it was on fire and no help was forthcoming from bystanders. Her eyes were the only part of her face that was spared, because she reflexively put her arms up in front of her face when the acid splashed onto her. But she could not see and could only hear sounds of traffic zooming by as she lay helpless on the road.The real horror of her condition struck her after she was released from the hospital. Comments and barbs were commonplace. It was just one part of the misplaced backlash from relatives, friends and acquaintances.She did not let the negativity get her down and converted the barbs into positivity. She let herself be inspired by all the people who thought her life was over. She drew strength from the fact that each step of the way her parents were supporting her.In a society that values women for their appearance, the biggest struggle was accepting herself with her reconstructed face and let her beauty shine through. She stepped out of the house a full three years after her acid attack and would don burkhas to cover herself up. A process of self realisation led her to finally shed the burkha because she wanted the beauty of clothes she had tailored herself to shine through.Arunima Sinha, who was pushed out of a train for refusing to give in to the bullying of thieves, went on to become the first woman amputee to climb Mount Everest. She was stranded on the train track for seven hours, unable to push herself out of the way of oncoming trains. She finally gave in and broke down when a few rats nibbled on the bloodied remainder of her leg. But she didn’t give up and held on till the next morning when she was finally discovered by villagers and taken to the Bareilly district hospital.advertisementWhile Arunima was bedridden and unable to even sit up without assistance, she decided to take up a sport, a challenging one that would instil her lost sense of confidence. She wanted to give her family, who were shattered after her accident, a reason to smile again.She met opposition every step of the way. She was turned away by numerous trainers, who said she was crazy to even be attempting such an expedition. She had to come to terms with her disability and work around that, putting focus on her strong points learnt while she was a national level volleyball player.Finally, a mountaineer, who was awestruck by Arunima’s conviction agreed to train her. He did not have the heart to turn her away after she made the long journey to meet him. Her sherpa was simultaneously awed and exasperated by her doggedness. At every difficult step of the climb, he suggested they turn back, but Anurima refused each time. She ran out of oxygen but persevered on, believing that God would not let her down this time.Getting back one’s self-conviction after a soul-shattering experience is fraught with far more prejudice for women. Both Laxmi and Anurima were not cowed down by the immense odds they faced and the manifest burden of the accident they carried. Converting the horrific incidents in both their lives into empowering ideas helped them recover their sense of self and is a testimony to their strength.I could not bear to look at myself in the mirror one and a half months after the acid attack: LaxmiMy campaign song for Indian Idol is based on my experience: LaxmiA few miles from the summit, the road was strewn with bodies of climbers. There I made a vow to reach the top for them as well as for myself: Arunima.(On her live-in partner) We didn’t want to get married because everyone does it: Laxmi.If I turned back when I was so close, I would have been regretting it today: Arunima.last_img read more

Bills Wide Receiver Stevie Johnson Suffers Hamstring Injury

It’s confirmed. Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver, Stevie Johnson, suffered an injury in practice Friday morning while running a route on the field.Johnson was running full speed and immediately went to the ground holding his left hamstring. He had to be helped off the field, escorted by trainers to the locker room.Johnson is the Bills’ No. 1 receiver, and although the severity of the injury remains unclear, players going down this close to the regular season is always worrisome.“He’s going to get evaluated, and it’s always tough when those situations happen,” said coach Doug Marrone. “It would be a major concern if we were talking about it during the season. Right now, a veteran player who has proved himself, we’ll just see what the doctors say, it is what it is and we’ll deal with it from there.”Watch the video above to see what the Bills will be missing this season, if Johnson doesn’t return. read more
