Another two-out single scored the runner on second, giving Northwestern State a 6-0 lead.The Cardinal comeback effort began in the bottom of the third. Rhett McCall singled to right field to lead off the inning and a one-out single by Philip Ingram through the middle of the infield put McCall on second. With two outs Coker hit into a fielder’s choice that looked like it would end the inning, but the third baseman made an error on his throw to second base.

A leadoff single advanced to second on a 4-3 grounder, then reached third on a passed ball. A single to left field with two outs scored the runner on third, giving NSU the final margin of victory, 7-2. An RBI single from Robin Adames scored Ingram, pulling Lamar back within four runs, 6-2, through three innings.Neither team would score again until the ninth inning thanks to stellar efforts from Jack Dallas, AbeRee Hiebert, Kristjan Storrie, Chet Jones, and Ryan Erickson.

VO2 Sportswear sponsors GB triathlete Amy Kilpin

first_imgNorth West England triathlon apparel specialist VO2 Sportswear has committed to a sponsorship deal with British triathlete Amy Kilpin. The Bolton-based company, which specialises in cycling and triathlon apparel, will provide custom training and racing kit for Amy to wear throughout the 2014 season.Hertfordshire-based Amy, who in her short time in the sport has achieved some impressive feats, does not have her immediate sights set on being a world champion, but simply wants to push herself and see how far she can go. Just two years ago Amy could not complete even a length of front crawl and described herself as a ‘non-sporty’ person.Today Amy is considered a hot prospect around the triathlon scene having recently qualified for the Great Britain team in her age category. She will compete in the European Long Distance Triathlon Championships in Amsterdam this September.This year she will also be competing in the Mallorca 70.3 in May and the Grafman Middle in June. Alongside these gruelling competitions, Amy will also be taking part in the sprint distance races in the Thorpe Triathlon Series. For all of these events, Amy will be sporting the latest in triathlon suit technology from VO2 Sportswear. Amy said “The kit they produce is really impressive, and extremely professional. I am absolutely thrilled to be partnering up with them, not only because they create such fantastic products, but they are also a pleasure to work with, and I really like endorsing smaller businesses so there is potential to grow with them.”She added, “I’m relatively new to triathlon so for both of us helping each other out with exposure works really well. There’s also not many custom kit manufacturers which offer the opportunity for one-off design; many place a stipulation on minimum orders, so VO2 have a competitive edge in this respect.”Besides being based in Hertfordshire and training around the Chiltern Hills, Amy also trains abroad and she visits Spain and Lanzarote for warm weather training. Both cold weather and warm weather training apparel will be provided from VO2’s range of performance clothing.Matt Tomkin, VO2 Sportswear Managing Director, said “It is a pleasure to work with Amy. We are proud of her achievement in qualifying for the Great Britain team and it is an honour to see her wearing our brand.“There is plenty more to come from Amy; she is a great talent and just starting out in a career that I am sure will prove very successful. When Amy approached us with the proposition of sponsoring her and providing bespoke kit we did not hesitate in saying ‘yes’.”VO2 Sportswear has designed bespoke products for cycling and triathlon teams all over the UK including Team Pie and Team True Spirit. The company also created the cycling jersey for BBC Children In Need when The One Show took part in its Rickshaw Challenge in 2013.www.vo2sportswear.com Relatedlast_img read more

Obituary: Katherine Ann Lawrence Oct. 27, 1947 – Nov. 25, 2019

first_imgKATHERINE ANN LAWRENCE Oct. 27, 1947 – Nov. 25, 2019Katherine Ann Lawrence, age 72, passed out of this world at her home on November 25, 2019, following a stroke in late September.Her final days were spent in her beautiful home, cared for by her husband, sons, mother, sister, brothers, and close friends, We loved her very much, and it has been so terribly hard to say goodbye.Kathy’s story began in New Haven, Connecticut, where she was born, the second of six children, to Stephanie and Stephen Sydoriak on October 27, 1947, the second of what was to be six children.  Her parents, first-generation Ukrainian-Americans were then graduate students in physics at Yale University. In 1948, the family moved to Los Alamos, where her father, Steve did cryogenics research at the Laboratory.Kathy grew up in the Western Area, attending nearby Mesa Primary, then Pueblo Junior High, and finally Los Alamos High School, where she graduated with honors in 1965. In Junior High, she became engaged in creative crafts: dolls, dollhouses, period rooms with miniature furniture, and Ukrainian Easter Eggs. With considerable research, she made the doll clothes to exact period specifications. Her work became outstanding, winning prizes at local and state exhibitions. Kathy also became the driving force behind the annual Sydoriak family musicals – writing, organizing, and whispering forgotten lines to her younger siblings.Unfortunately, Kathy inherited a severe life handicap in the form of clinical depression.  Her parents worked with several psychiatrists over the years to help her overcome it and succeed in life, but it continued a major struggle. After high school, she focused her energy and talent into the world of miniatures. In 1966 she volunteered at the then-developing Folk Art Museum in Santa Fe, where she restored retablos and bultos. She made miniature copies of these works, which sold at the museum shop. She later worked with Alexander Girard at his studio, restoring materials for his fantastic folk dioramas and displays, which she helped set up at the museum. In her own workshop, she also created a detailed scale model of the beautiful Santuario de Chimayo altar, which was commissioned by a collector friend of Spanish colonial-arts-scholar E. Boyd.In 1966, Kathy met her husband George, then a recently-arrived young Los Alamos Lab physicist, in the International Folk Dancing group led by Don and Alice Liska.  Kathy and George felt an immediate attraction that quickly extended beyond dancing. They were married on October 4, 1968, honeymooning in San Francisco.Soon after moving into a newly-built home in White Rock, they had two sons, David and Stephen, in quick succession.  Kathy turned out to be a wonderful full-time mom, and while depression always hovered in the darkness, she persevered with great courage.  With George’s and her family’s support, she raised her two children into the amazing and successful human beings that they have now long been. All too soon, David and Stephen were away in college at UCSD, giving Kathy more time to focus on the crafts she loved. Taking up quilting, with the help of increasingly sophisticated sewing machines, she became a master quilter, piling her energy into a growing number of projects, many of which became sensational gifts to family members.In 1993, when new residential lots became available near the Guaje Pines Cemetery, Kathy jumped at the opportunity to build her dream home in the forest. She took the lead in working with a local designer to come up with a beautiful house with a big wooded yard  – perfect for living, crafting, and family gatherings.  She and George have loved being there for the past nearly 25 years.Kathy’s battle with depression caught up with her in the new century, and led to declining physical health. Decades-long antidepressant meds caused deterioration of kidney function. Although this was turned around in 2006 by a transplant from son David, a sequence of other health problems followed over the years, resulting in various physical handicaps.  But 2012 marked the arrival of wonderful grandson Dmitri, sparking a passion for internet gift searches at birthdays and Christmas.  Quilting continued in the face of the handicaps, and despite everything, this was a mostly happy time.Kathy, our much loved wife, mother, and daughter is survived by: her husband George Lawrence of Los Alamos, NM; son David Lawrence of Boulder, CO; son Stephen Lawrence of Salt Lake City, UT; mother Stephanie Sydoriak of Los Alamos, NM; brothers Sid Sydoriak of Los Alamos, NM, Eugene Sydoriak of Spokane, WA, Walter Sydoriak of Ashland, OR; sister Chris Sydoriak of Longmont, CO; and grandson Dmitri Lawrence of Salt Lake City, UT.A memorial celebration of Kathy’s life will be held at Fuller Lodge in Los Alamos on Saturday January 18, 2020, at 2:00 pm.last_img read more


Interest rates kept at 5.5%

first_imgThe outcome was in line with economists’ forecasts, although market expectations of a move have increased somewhat in recent days. Most believe the bank’s Monetary Policy Committee will reduce rates in February, when the bank releases new forecasts on growth and inflation in its quarterly Inflation Report. The bank announced its decision without comment, noting only that the minutes of this week’s meeting would be published on 23 January. The Monetary Policy Committee cut rates in December for the first time since August 2005, following a policy tightening cycle that only ended in July 2007, and which saw rates raised to a six-year high of 5.75% from only 4.5% a year before.‘The decision to hold was most likely not unanimous,’ said Paul Guest, director of Jones Lang LaSalle’s UK research team in response to the news. ‘Financial conditions are easing following last month’s interventions and we are witnessing the upside risks to inflation on the rise. ‘Contrary to expectations early last year, utilities prices continue to escalate. Big hikes were recently announced by NPower and its rivals are expected to follow suit, while crude oil prices continue to nudge $100 a barrel. ‘This will reverse the recent sub-trend growth of home energy prices and add to escalating food price inflation, where tariffs are advancing at more than twice the rate of headline CPI growth. ‘To complicate the picture, wage growth is accelerating, with the latest upswing in the retail prices index combined with a tight labour market putting negotiating power into the hands of workers. This could boost headline inflation further ahead of the 2% target. In November, the main index was up 2.1% year-on-year.’last_img read more

ITV and Lovells form pro bono partnership

first_imgITV Legal has launched a new pro bono initiative with City firm Lovells as part of an innovative partnership programme with its panel law firms. The ITV Legal pro bono bank gives in-house lawyers at ITV the opportunity to take part in Lovells’ pro bono work. The scheme will be used to provide a new monthly legal advice clinic in conjunction with Body and Soul, a charity supporting children and families affected by HIV. The partnership, believed to be the first of its kind, was launched last week as part of ITV Legal’s excellence and responsibility programme. It is designed to foster closer links between ITV’s in-house legal team and its panel law firms, to enhance training and development. The programme, involving City firms Lovells, Addleshaw Goddard, Olswang, DLA Piper, Slaughter and May, Charles Russell and Wiggin, is led by ITV’s director of legal affairs, Barry Matthews. Addleshaw Goddard will run a ‘mini MBA’ project designed to enhance the commercial awareness of the ITV lawyers, while Olswang and DLA Piper will provide workshops on contract and IP law. The scheme will also see up to eight ITV trainees spending six-month secondments with panel firms. Matthews said: ‘Legally focused support and development is equally important for in-house lawyers as it is for those in private practice. This unique programme, a first for an in-house legal team, will benefit all our legal and business affairs staff.’last_img read more


Crane Rental assists fight against cancer

first_imgThe building was constructed and an opening was left in the roof just large enough for the accelerator and associated parts to be lifted in.First a 600-tonne capacity Terex AC500-2 cranes lifted in the gantry arms and counterweights, which were installed first, before the 40-tonne proton accelerator was also lifted into the building on its frame using two 3 m slings on the top, four 6 m slings on the bottom and eight shackles.The load was rigged with a 2.4 m spreader bar before the cargo was guided into the opening with only a few inches clearance, explained Crane Rental.After the cyclotron had been lifted in, two 5-tonne chain hoists, six 10-tonne chain hoists and two 20-tonne chain hoists, with ten dynamometers to check the weight and tension on each hoist and the shackles, were used to rotate the gantry arms and counterweights that would hold the cyclotron at a 135-degree angle.Constant monitoring of the dynamometers was critical in order to avoid overloading the lifting equipment or putting unnecessary strain on the gantry arm and supporting infrastructure. The rigging also had to be repositioned several times during the movement of each component to avoid damaging the equipment, said Crane Rental.After the cyclotron has been installed, a temporary roof cover was placed on it using chains, before a crane used a 5.2 m spreader bar, eight 12-tonne rolling blocks, 18 slings and 30 shackled to lift the 1.5 m thick concrete roof sections into place.  www.cranerental.comlast_img read more
