Martin Erat and Martin Gelinas also scored for Nashville.The first period was an offensive one for both teams as the Predators scored twice on 15 shots, while the Wild scored a pair on 11 shots.The Wild opened the scoring at the 11:08 mark when Brent Burns blasted a shot from a few feet inside the blue line that was deflected into the net by Voros.The Predators answered at 12:49 on the power play as Erat beat Backstrom to the left side of the net when he fired a one-timer from the top edge of the right circle. Nashville took the lead just 23 seconds later. Greg Zanon passed to Gelinas as he skated across in front of the crease, and Gelinas backhanded a shot into the right side of the net as Backstrom was stretched out on the ice to the left side.The Wild tied it at 14:16 when James Sheppard passed the puck to Foy who was a few feet in front of the net. Foy’s one-timer went under Mason’s outstretched right leg pad.The Predators held a 15-6 advantage in shots on goal in the second period, but the Wild scored the lone goal. Gaborik gave the Wild a 3-2 lead when he skated behind Mason from the left side and scored off a pass from Mark Parrish. Radivojevic lifts Wild to win with under 2 minutes remainingThe Wild are doing their best to get back on track after a bit of a rough stretch.November 26, 2007Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrint.NASHVILLE (AP) – The Nashville Predators’ failure to control the Minnesota Wild in the final two minutes could come back to haunt them.Branko Radivojevic scored the go-ahead goal with 1:53 remaining, leading the Wild to a 4-3 victory Saturday night.“We had a tie and we lost it,” Predators coach Barry Trotz said. “It’s just painful because you don’t know if that point is going to be a meaningful point at the end of the season. Somewhere along the line, if we are working hard and doing the right things those points will even out.”Aaron Voros, Matt Foy and Marian Gaborik also scored for Minnesota, which took a 3-2 lead into the third period.Vernon Fiddler scored the tying goal for the Predators in third period at 10:16 when Alexander Radulov found him low in the slot and Fiddler shot the puck between Niklas Backstrom’s legs.Radivojevic scored what proved to be the winning goal when he beat Chris Mason high over his left shoulder on a 3-on-2 breakaway at 18:07.“It feels really good to get that winning goal, especially after I was a healthy scratch the previous game,” Radivojevic said. “The 21 games before I had just one goal. It was tough. When you get benched, and you have to sit up in the stands, you think a lot about the game.”
Seven Gophers wrestlers place in Big Ten tournamentMinnesota’s individual performances placed seven of the ten Gophers wrestlers.Elle MoulinFreshman Gable Steveson stands on the podium after receiving his second place award on Sunday, March 10 at Williams Arena in Minneapolis. Steveson lost the match against Anthony Cassar of Penn State 4-3. David MullenMarch 12, 2019Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThe Gophers wrestling team (14-3, 7-2 Big Ten) walked away from the Big Ten wrestling Championship with their heads held high, as six wrestlers placed in the top five leading to 101.5 points and a fourth place finish. Although four of Minnesota’s wrestlers made it to the third place match, top-ranked heavy weight freshman Gable Steveson advanced to the championship match after winning three matches, which extended his winning streak to 30.Sunday, however, the season-long streak ended with Steveson’s first loss as a Gopher wrestler to No. 3 Anthony Cassar from Penn State in a 4-3 decision. Cassar scored his final two points after he took down Steveson with just under 30 seconds left.“It just makes you more hungry, you know; I learned that I can’t give up shots with 30 seconds left,” Steveson said. “He knows I’m coming again, and I know he’s coming again, … we’re going to see each other.”Eggum said Steveson’s loss comes with many learning opportunities. “That’s the great thing — you get a chance now to learn from this and grow from it,” Eggum said.After the tournament was over, Steveson was announced as the Big Ten freshman of the year.Six other Gopher wrestlers placed over the weekend, leading to the team’s fourth place finish. Sean Russell at 125 pounds, Ethan Lizak at 133 pounds and Devin Skatzka at 174 pounds placed third in the tournament. Mitch McKee in 141 placed fourth, Tommy Thorn at 149 placed fifth and Steve Bleise placed sixth at 157.“I thought the team wrestled really well. A lot of weights wrestled higher than our seeds, so that’s always a good thing,” Lizak said.Russell and Lizak’s paths to third place were rather different, as Russell was still in the championship bracket until the semi-finals Saturday night. Lizak lost in the second round, however, and went on to sweep the field on the constellation side.Although Russell won two matches early, he was topped in the semi-finals for the second time this season by Iowa’s Spencer Lee. However, he swept in the constellation bracket concluding with a dominating 6-0 decision for third. In the third place match, Lizak faced off against Iowa’s Austin DeSanto, who had downed Lizak earlier in the season 6-1 in January. This time however, Lizak got the last laugh.“I think I had a better game plan going into this match,” Lizak said. “After I wrestle a guy once, I can make a lot bigger adjustments, and I kind of know what I’m going into.”Lizak started fast by getting two quick points off a take down, and there was no looking back. He came out victorious with a 6-2 decision and revenge for the January loss.Skatzka also made it to the semi-finals after two victories early on Saturday. He was paired up with top-ranked Mark Hall from Penn State. Hall placed first in 174. Skatzka went head-to-head with Nebraska’s Michael Labriola. It wouldn’t be until the final five seconds that Skatzka pulled away with a take down, clinching a 4-2 third place finish.For both days of the tournament, Williams Arena was packed as a sell-out crowd reacted to their respective teams’ performances throughout each day. In the opening session, everything was going Minnesota’s way as every wrestler advanced to the second session. Only two wrestlers failed to stay in the championship bracket in the first, but the Gophers tied in sending the second-most wrestlers to the semi-finals. Minnesota ended the afternoon session in second place of the team tournament with 54 points, trailing only Penn State who had 77.Even though the Gophers sent five wrestlers to the semi-finals, only Steveson advanced to the championship match in Saturday’s evening session. Eggum said Minnesota will be sending at least eight wrestlers to Pittsburgh to compete in the NCAA Tournament later this month.

“I don't really like the buildings my dad designs. They're all so boring - made of glass and steel and that's it. I'd prefer it if this was a normal house like the one over the road. When I'm in the mood I say, ‘Dad, tell me about architecture.’ There's not a lot to it. You've just got to get a piece of paper and a pencil. He wants me to grow up to be an architect, but I don't. It's boring. I want to be in something like the police force, something exciting.” So spoke a young Jay Foster, son of Norman, back in 1996. As well as being decidedly unfazed by the totemic success of his father, Jay it seems has no intention of following in his professional footsteps. But there are many other architects’ sons who have taken the opposite view. Why? Is there something about the role of architect that inspires filial emulation from their offspring? Is an architect’s son (or daughter) more likely to follow in their parents’ footsteps than a lawyer, a doctor or a policeman?Probably not. Any vocation by its very nature must be deeply personal undertaking and requires a level of commitment that genealogy alone is unlikely to provide. All intense professional careers must inevitably cast an aura over family life but there is little evidence to support a claim that this impact is particularly intensified in architecture. In fact, if any profession bears the hallmarks of dynastic succession then it is not architecture but politics - the Kennedys, Bushes and even Millibands of the world are testament to that.Nevertheless, the idea that architecture emits some kind of magnetic, hallucinogenic draw upon its progeny is undoubtedly seductive. It is a suspicion invariably strengthened by the fact that for much of the lay general public, architecture remains a profession shrouded in mystery and anonymity. Obeisant sons being secretly indoctrinated into a Masonic architectural circle certainly appeals to an outlandish pulp-fictional narrative.And of course the hereditary theory is backed up by lots of anecdotal evidence. During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance there was a strong cultural tradition of craftsmanship being passed on from father to son. So whether it is fate or coincidence, we take a look at some of the more famous examples of sons following their fathers into architecture below...Edwin and Robert LutyensEdwin Lutyens was one of the most influential English architects of the early 20th century, spearheading a modern brand of monumental, vernacular classicism that spread from the City of London to New Delhi. Robert Lutyens built less but did give us the sleek Art Deco facade of the Pantheon M&S on the eastern half of London’s Oxford Street. Poetically, Dad had already built an even bigger retail block on the western half, now gregariously occupied by Primark.George Dance the Elder and YoungerThis urbane Palladian duo pretty much had the City of London sewn up between them. Dad served as the City’s chief surveyor for much of the mid-18th century and was thereby able to award himself plum commissions such as Mansion House and St. Leonard’s Church Shoreditch. Son was even more prolific and designed the neo-Gothic porch on the City’s Guildhall as well as the masterplan featuring the crescent where Bloomsbury’s Building Centre sits. Eliel and Eero SaarinenOf this Finnish-American pair, it is son Eero who is by far the better known. His graceful and dynamic Modernism redefined aviation in the 1960s and gave us magnificent terminals at JFK and Washington Dulles. Unfortunately it also gave us London’s American Embassy. Few realise that his father was also an architect, whose early works were heavily influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement.Albert Speer and Albert Speer Jnr.When poor Albert Speer Jnr. unveiled his Olympic masterplan proposals for the Beijing 2008 Games, it was perhaps inevitable that his axial and monumental style of urbanism was unfavourably compared to that of his father’s. The fact that technically Speer Jnr. is a town planner and not an architect made little difference. Despite having Hitler as his boss, Speer Snr. was actually a remarkably gifted and talented young architect. However, history will forever taint his spectacular neo-classical designs with the pungent pall of fascism. Sir George Gilbert Scott, Giles Gilbert Scott and Richard Gilbert Scott The Scotts are the greatest architect dynasty Britain has ever produced. Head of the family was Sir George Gilbert Scott, a titan of the Victorian age who was dexterous enough to produce romantic Gothic (St. Pancras Stn.) or palatial classicsm (Foreign Office) depending on his client's wishes. His grandson Giles Gilbert Scott also left an astonishing body of work which includes Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern, Waterloo Bridge and the iconic red K2 telephone box. His son Richard Gilbert Scott designed Modernist and post-modern additions to London’s Guildhall in the 1970s and 1990s respectively. There were others too, including Art Deco Elizabeth Scott, probably England’s first prominent female architect. Incredibly, the Scotts have been active in every style and generation of British architecture since the early 19th century. Jacques V and Ange-Jacques Gabriel The Gabriels were integral to French 18th century classical architecture. Father Jaques was a disciple of French Baroque icon Jules Hardouin-Mansart and embellished Hardouin-Mansart’s Versailles with lavish Rococo interiors. Later, his son Ange-Jaques applied sumptuous neo-classicism to his designs for Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon and Paris’s magnificent Place de la Concorde. Richard and John SeifertRichard Seifert changed London’s skyline more than any architect since Wren. With almost 600 buildings under his belt in London alone, including iconic landmarks such as Centre Point and the former NatWest Tower, he transformed post-war urban Britain and virtually single-handedly introduced the commercial tower block into the British architectural lexicon. His son John took over his vast practice in 1984 and ran it from offices in Bloomsbury up until its closure last year.
"The trucks represent our business across Europe, and if you look at the history of them you will see we are always evolving. These new designs are a part of that and they show that we are moving forwards," said Nico Van der Vlist, managing director. The current truck fleet will retain its original designs but all new trucks will feature a fresh look, in keeping with the company's logo and design. www.vandervlist.com

Tweet President of the Dominica Council on Aging Zetma ToussaintThe high level of noise from bars, vehicles and residents is a major concern for senior citizens, the president of the Dominica Council on Aging, Zetma Toussaint has said.Mrs Toussaint told a seminar at the St Alphonsus Parish Hall on Monday 27 April 2015, that noise continues to affect older persons physically and mentally. The Council is hosting a one day seminar on “Building the framework for best practices at residential homes”, in which employees of about 11 homes for the elderly are participating.“They tend to have these systems that are amplified and therefore the noise coming from them is very high,” Mrs Toussaint said.She explained that the noise level also comes from “high-fi systems set up for feasts days or just on weekends, other microphone used at public meetings or religious gatherings and sometimes I recall at one point there was even church activities”.“It definitely has an effect on older persons and the two groups of persons who are most affected are the infants and the older persons…That prevents many of the older persons from having a good night’s rest, therefore it affects their physical and mental health,” Mrs. Toussaint said. Participants of the workshopShe indicated that reports regarding disturbance by loud noise are continuously made to the Council. “We had a report once at the office where because of that noise an elderly lady was getting very confused. In the day she was alright, but when the noise comes on at nights, she got very confused, so it does have effects on the older persons,” she said. The Noise Abatement Act, enacted by the government in 1993, stipulates that noise levels should be at a minimum from 11PM.However, according to Mrs. Toussaint, this law is not being adhered to by bar owners. “When the police officers come, they [bar owners] lower the music and as soon as they [police officers] turn their backs, the music is back up and that has been happening”. Mrs. Toussaint therefore called on the general public to adhere to the Noise Abatement Act and reminded the public that the elderly citizens need time to rest, “especially at nights so try and keep down the level of noise”.The ultimate goal of Monday’s seminar is the formulation of critical national guidelines and regulations for the establishment and management of residential care homes in Dominica. The seminar is being facilitated by Frantz Remy, gerontologist, director of AMDOR, a home for the aged in Martinique. Share Sharing is caring!
