Five Additional Pitches With Artificial Grass Underway

Published by:

One of the most common trends in landscaping nowadays is artificial grass and companies such as Greenside Landscaping are known to install them to make the lawn look more beautiful and green all year round. Artificial grass is also used in pitches because it requires less maintenance and does not wither as fast as real grass.

The Rugby 365 England recently announced that they are developing five more pitches with artificial grass. They are hoping to finish the five pitches before the next season starts. These pitches will benefit five different areas such as West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, Yorkshire, Durham and Derbyshire.

The Artifical Grass Pitches can be found in various locations such as the host clubs in Shelford RFC, Billingham RUFC, Stourbridge RFC, Keighley RUFC and Derby RFC. These are only additions to the first three pitches, Lancashire, Somerset and Buckinghamshire that were completed before the end of 2016.

The Artificial Grass Pitches are part of the investment that has been pledged by England Rugby to the Rugby World Cup 2015. They promise to leave a legacy worth more than £50 million in the next four years or more. They are focusing on developing a hundred AGPs all over England.

The first three pitches by Rugby 365 was opened at the beginning of this year and within four months of using during the on-season, they have been host to more than 250 games and over 30 rugby related festivals. Around 20,000 players, a combined number since the opening, have already experienced the AGPs.

According to the chairman of Aylesbury RFC which is the host club for the AGP in Buckinghamshire, Paul Milham, they belong to the first three that was opened and hosted the RFU Rugby 365. Ever since the launching, they were able to use the facility to its maximum potential.

He added that they were able to host more than 70 matches within four months and around 9,500 players have already utilized it.

Sport pitches are not the only place for artificial grass as residential properties are also hiring companies such as Greenside Landscaping to install artificial grass on their lawn.

NRL Community Pitched In For Beanie For Brain Cancer Round

Published by:

The NRL Community went and united for a common goal this early May, in support of the 11th Round of ‘Beanie for Brain Cancer’, with fans visiting their nearest NRL store to purchase beanies in support of the event.

The charity event was held with the cooperation of Australia’s Channel Nine, the Fox League, the Macquarie Radio Network, as well as the Mark Hughes Foundation. The event’s aim was to bring the masses’ attention towards the topic of brain cancer. The event came to be because of the National Rugby League Foot Show and Nine NRL Executive Matt Callander, who is also a patient of brain cancer, having been diagnosed back in 2016.

The National Rugby League’s Chief Executive Officer, Todd Greenberg, made a statement regarding the event, saying that, when the idea for the ‘Beanie for Brain Cancer’ event was pitched, the higher-ups immediately agreed, with little hesitation to support Mr. Callander and other brain cancer patients in the country.

Mr. Greenberg says that Matt (Callander) is part of the NRL’s family, and that he, like other brain cancer patients, has been fighting bravely against the sickness, a particularly aggressive form of cancer.

All the funding raised by the sales of the ‘Beanie for Brain Cancer’ Round 11, went straight to the Mark Hughes Foundation. The round has a target of raising at least $500,000 to fund a three-year research group for another brain cancer research area.

Mr. Greenberg said that the charity event is much more than rugby league, much more than simply buying a beanie from an NRL store. It’s about creating awareness about brain cancer, which will bring attention to it and support research so that, in the future, brain cancer, and other forms of cancer can be fought.

NRL and its Channel 9 partner, Sportsbet, were one of many who committed to donating. The partnership donated $1,000 for every try scored across the whole of Round 11.

Beanies were also purchased by supporting fans throughout several matches during Round 11, which lasted from the 18th to the 21st of May, all in the spirit of supporting the NRL’s endeavour.

The Frustrations Of Moving To A New Home

Published by:

Cass Helstrip, a business owner never expected that something could go wrong when she and a friend moved out from their rented apartment. The two ladies arranged for furniture removal firm to pack their belongings in two separate containers, store it for a while before it will be delivered to their new address.

The ladies gave their best estimate on the number of boxes that will be required when they agreed on the contract but on the day of the move, it was found out that the boxes were not enough. They asked the furniture removal in advance to bring extra boxes which they failed to comply with. Since the agreement was on an hourly basis, the ladies ended up paying more than £600.

The ladies made the mistake of agreeing to an hourly rate but what was more frustrating was the unprofessional packing. The boxes did not have any labels so that Cass had to provide stickers to separate her stuff from her friend’s.

However, this is not the end of the story. The ladies were extremely frustrated when the stored goods were delivered to the family home. The sofa was covered with oily stains while the velvet chair had a big oily footprint. Re-upholstery is not option because the price is the same as buying new. The damage to the pieces of furniture was worth £2,000.

Some of the belongings that were returned to Cass were not hers and some of her own stuff was missing. She was not sure whether the stuff was lost or still in storage. The basic insurance was only £40 per item and Cass did not have extra cover.

Handy Moves, the furniture removal company, was not a member of any trade body that can provide a fair resolution to a dispute. Cass’ complaint resulted into a £400 compensation which was not really enough to cover her losses.

If you require home removal, your best option is Sydney furniture removalists so that you will not experience Cass’ misfortune. The furniture removalist will guarantee that every piece of belonging will be handled with care so that it will reach the destination safely. The rate offered is fair and affordable without hidden charges.

Wireless GSM Earpiece As A Popular Device For Cheating

The use of wireless cheating devices is common among Chinese students. Over the years, they have been caught using wireless devices from gsm earpiece to erasers, belts and watches. A Bluetooth-enabled watch allows students to cheat without attracting any attention from the teachers. Nobody would we be surprised if you check the watch from time to time while taking the exams.

The stakes are quite high and competitive that is why some students make the attempt to cheat.

Chinese cheating tools have gone high tech that they closely resemble the James Bond gadgets. In 2014, a student was caught wearing a pair of eyeglasses that included a camera. Once the camera is activated, it can send black and white photographs of the test to an outside location. The answer will be sent back but it did not include info on how the answers were sent back to the student.

In Sichuan province, 40 students were suspected of using high tech pens that works with a gsm earpiece to send back answers.

This year, examination centres have deployed metal detectors, facial and fingerprint recognition technologies, blockers for cell phone signals, wireless detectors and drones to stop cheating.

Before the exam kicked off, security officers have already arrested 52 individuals nationwide. If proven, the cheaters and their accomplices may face 7 years jail time. Cheating is very common in math and English tests that include multiple choice questions. The tests are deemed so important police guards have been deployed in testing centres.

Honda Introduces The Rebel 2017

Published by:

When Honda introduced OG Rebel decades ago, the motorcycle company’s idea was to make the bad boy cruiser aesthetic, tone it down a bit and tighten it up a little. Put a mellow engine and make the seat low enough so that anyone can easily swing a leg over it without teetering. It was apparent that Honda wanted to remove as much of the limitations as possible with just enough of the Hell’s Angels vibe so that riders will still think it cool.

The Rebel 2017 is pretty much of the same concept with a fuel injection, a slightly forwarded raked riding position and more than decent brakes. The idea is likely to gain mass appeal for the Rebel 2017 because bikes are certainly outnumbered by cars on the roads. Bikes you can see on the roads today are more specialized which best describes Rebel 2017. Honda’s Rebel is the closest thing to a single bike that can be appreciated by different riders.

While it is too early to consider Honda’s Rebel to be the harbinger of the whole motorcycle industry, it is certainly in a position to attract more people to motorcycle riding. The more bikers, the more innovations will be made on new models of motorcycles that are introduced to the global market.

Practically speaking, if you are about 5 feet 6 inches in height, you can sit on the Rebel with both feet on the ground because the seat’s height is only 27.2 inches, remarkably low for a new motorbike model. The weight of the Rebel is only 408 pounds and a few more if you order the ABS version.

The Rebel’s chassis design does a great job of keeping the rider’s weight close the road. The Rebel excels when used for city commuting, beach highway cruising and short tours along back roads because you can let the wind wash over you.

UK motorcycle dealers offer a wide range of high quality used and brand new Honda bikes for affordable financing. Even if you are new customer, you will be provided with unbeatable service. There is also a parts and accessories department for adding personal finishing touches.

Preschool Opens After Heart breaking Flooding During Cyclone Debbie

Published by:

The Evans Head Preschool, which was tragically devastated like many by Cyclone Debbie, has recently reopened this early June.

The damage done by to the school was severe, as waters brought into the school by the cyclone’s heavy rain lead to the school losing a considerable amount of its school classroom furniture, which was either heavily damaged or outright taken away by the waters.

Ms. Cuskelly, director for Evans Head Preschool, stated that the issue was preceded by the school’s near flooding, wherein water nearly broke into the school, reaching up to mere inches below the doors. When Debbie came in, she says, the school was suffering from issues with its drainage system, which led to the school being easily flooded during Debbie’s arrival.

The school’s educational  leader, Cath Gillespie, pointed out that the flooding led to the school not only having damaged school classroom furniture, but also losing its entire  outside play area, which was washed away by the flood. The school’s 16 m3 also necessitated replace due to damage from the flooding.

Ms. Gillespie lamented the loss of all of their school classroom furniture, which wasn’t the standard ‘fantastic plastic’ that was seen in other schools throughout the world, and, as such, possessed a considerable amount of sentimental value for students and educators alike.

Help for the preschool came from the local Royal Australian Air Force staff, the Evans Head K-12 school. Even concerned citizens came in to offer help, helping with the clean up process and with ensuring the safety and salvage of the furniture, whilst the RAAF went in to rip up flooded carpets, as well as sort out the items of the school.

The local Evans Head K-12 came to help, offering its classrooms for use whilst the preschool was under repair, whilst some members of its JADE team came in and helped with clean up and the setup of flat packs of stuff for the preschool.

Both Ms. Cuskelly and Ms. Gillespie extended their thanks to the people who came in to help, including their friends, families, and even their administration officer, Lisa Stewart, as well as the RAAF, the JADE team, and local tradies who put in hours of work into helping the school reopen.
