Fortunately, there are a few ways for you to protect your joints and help your golf game all at the same time. Here are a few tips to help your golf game:Joint motions at the hip, knee, and elbowMaximizing the energy transfer in your swingAchieving the proper pattern of mobility and stability sequencing throughout the swingControlling balance and weight shift through your swingStability and positioning at finishFlorida Hospital Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation has an awesome program called “Golf Fore Life” that is specifically designed for golfers. Our certified experts will assess every phase of your swing, from address to finish with our golf swing analysis and functional movement screen. This is a really easy and cool way to find out whether or not your swing is hindering your golf game or causing injuries.Key Factors for InjuriesMany people injure themselves simply because they do not stretch. A survey showed that more than half of the golfers who warmed up for 10 minutes or more before golfing had fewer than half the injuries than those who did not warm up. Another cause of injuries is the fact that golf is a repetitive sport. For this reason alone, many strains occur with the shoulder, neck, back, ankle and other areas of the body.Dr. J. Dean Cole, MD an orthopedic surgeon at Florida Hospital explains, “The quick twisting motion of your spine, hips, and knee can be harmful. Be sure to get those joints ready prior to swinging for the moon. Core strengthening and a good warm-up routine will go a long way to avoid injury.”For many people, golf is a relaxing hobby — something they can do to release stress. We all need that. However, when the very hobby that you engage in is causing you pain and inconvenient injuries, you can learn what you can do to prevent them. These preventative measures and exercise can help you avoid common injuries, and in turn, will land you that amazing win with your buddies, minus the injuries of course.Still have questions?

This house is a hybrid of several types of houses: first of all the first thing it wants is to be a “house of the Camp d’Elx”, as those still populate the rural districts with its peculiar silhouette, whose traditional architecture makes use of ceramic decks inclined and the deep porches -for shade- oriented at noon; But at the same time it also wants to be a “house-patio Mediterranean”, introverted, protected from the outside and purely white; And also has in its genetics a “Californian house”, one of those sophisticated houses of the admired modern architecture of Los Angeles -with whom we share Mediterranean climate- that unfold their plants -many L shaped- in open horizontal spaces which overlook the gardens and the refreshing swimming pools.Save this picture!© David FrutosSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© David FrutosAs a Mediterranean house, a vital piece of this project is the patio. The patio is a space that widens and multiplies the experiences of the house, and contributes to blur the boundary between the inside and the outside. As it is located in the entrance area of ​​the house, it makes the arrival a very special moment, in fact the whole vestibular space is around the patio. In this house also has been used the patio to articulate the transition from one part to the other, clearly separating the common area from the private area of ​​the bedrooms. And finally the most exciting thing about a patio is that it is an ‘open-air room’ that captures and filters light at different times of the day and year, filling the interior with very different nuances and very changing situations.Save this picture!© David FrutosAnother main part of the house is the kitchen. Around it is generated the whole ‘family life’ and will undoubtedly become the heart of the house in a multitude of moments and circumstances. That is why the kitchen is completely open to the rest of the house, a decision that also seeks the democratization of domestic roles and, above all, the idea of ​​living and enjoying the entire interior landscape of the house. To reinforce this nuclear idea of ​​the kitchen, it is located in the same baryonenter of the common space to precisely be able to dominate visually from that point all the common spaces -dining room, living room, patio and study-library- and all exterior spaces -porche, garden and swimming pool-.Save this picture!© David FrutosProject gallerySee allShow lessOMGEVING and Partners Win Design Competition to Restore Riverfront in VietnamArchitecture News”MAD Works: MAD Architects” Introduced by Sir Peter CookArchitecture Books Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/801607/matola-house-jaime-sepulcre-bernand Clipboard Matola House / Jaime Sepulcre Bernand Save this picture!© David Frutos Share Year:  “COPY” Projects Photographs:  David Frutos Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY”center_img Area:  365 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Jaime Sepulcre Bernad Area Area of this architecture project Spain ArchDaily CopyHouses•Elche, Spain Matola House / Jaime Sepulcre BernandSave this projectSaveMatola House / Jaime Sepulcre Bernand ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/801607/matola-house-jaime-sepulcre-bernand Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeJaime Sepulcre BernadOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesElcheSpainPublished on December 21, 2016Cite: “Matola House / Jaime Sepulcre Bernand” 21 Dec 2016.

This site lies in an old corner of reclaimed mountainside. From the jumble of disparate concrete and building blocks among plants and fieldstone, it is clear that this place has been inhabited for a long time. Right on the edge of a hairpin bend in the road, the site was encircled by a pre-existing wall and revetment, though no buildings stood here. I set out not to simply plant a shiny new building in this vacant space, but to create a novel piece of architecture that would renovate the entire site.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!PlanWith this architecture I aimed to fully manifest the building’s location within that neighborhood and to pass down to the future the legacy of this site: to express the idea that this ‘home’ is the sum of the building and its surrounding environment, including the pre-existing wall as the house’s perimeter, and the mountain greenery beyond as part of its garden. As such, I did not follow the normal procedure of building a 3D cross-section from a flat plane, then considering the framework afterwards; rather, I started by reading the terrain and considering the section, then assembled a framework from materials that would last as part of the building’s legacy and filled the house with practical items and fixtures. Only after all this process did the floor plan become clear.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!Cross sectionSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!© Koichi Torimura I built the roof high enough to see the surrounding mountains over the perimeter wall. Since the house felt cramped when the supporting pillars were all placed under the roof, I positioned some outside this area, and created a sense of openness through the staggered position of boundaries such as the windows, floor installations, eaves, perimeter, wall and pillars. I believed that for a setting in which the neighborhood commands such a visible presence, it was better to have the features and details of the house spread out as necessary, rather than try to systematically integrate and control these component parts used a large 1:20 scale model of the house and its surrounding environment to aid us in the design process, studying and peering at it regularly to practice a more physical style of architecture.  Erika NakagawaSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessStark House / Park + Associates Pte LtdSelected ProjectsChoui Fong Tea Cafe 2 / IDIN ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houses Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeErika Nakagawa OfficeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookJapanPublished on March 05, 2020Cite: “House Momoyama / Erika Nakagawa Office” 05 Mar 2020.

Boston: Justice for the drivers, safety for the children!

first_imgDrivers of the Boston School Bus Union, Steelworkers Local 8751, are continuing their fierce fight against union-busting, corporate giant Veolia/Transdev. In 2013, Veolia, a French-based company, took over management of Boston school transportation. Operating as its merger partner Transdev, global Veolia then launched a vicious campaign against the union, its members and the communities it serves.In the two years since, the union has been led by newly formed Team Solidarity, which brings rank-and-file activism into the bus yards every day. The union has forced Veolia back to the bargaining table with militant tactics.Team Solidarity members at a Boston bus driver yard rally arefrom left to right: Samir Stanley, Angie Louis Charles, GeorgiaScott, Jean Brazile (behind Georgia), Robert Salley.WW photo: Stevan KirschbaumA hundred people joined the 18-member Team Negotiating Committee at the hotel in September where bargaining is going on. Rank-and-file workers and supporters filled the parking lot, blared union songs and created a shouting gauntlet through which Veolia and Boston Public School bosses had to pass. Then the ranks packed the Negotiating Committee room.Union President Andre François and other USW 8751 negotiators expressed the leadership’s determination to beat back all Veolia/City concessions, win reinstatement of the four illegally fired leaders, as well as secure economic justice for the 900-plus members and their families. They vowed to bring the fighting power of the rank and file to the negotiating table and to the bus yards.USW 8751 is a militant, politically active union that’s fought shoulder-to-shoulder with the Boston community in many battles throughout the years. This was the union that got children safely to school through racist mobs in the 1974 desegregation struggle. The current Veolia attack on USW 8751 is an aggressive austerity attack on a majority people-of-color union and on public education — those riding the buses are primarily young people of color.Driver Georgia Scott, who was born in Selma, Ala., told WW in August: “This is the same struggle as 1965 in Selma. Schools were limited [there] — all black, all white. The education system did not work for people of color. … Veolia cutting back on the buses, that will limit our children, their safety and their choices of education.”The Boston School Bus Union drivers are also the parents and grandparents of the students riding their buses. They live in the communities where they drive the buses and want the best for the children.Previous USW 8751 contracts established strong standards for bus safety, routes allowing drivers to get children to school on time and limits on ride duration for children with special needs. Veolia/Transdev has tried to cut these kinds of safeguards out of the new contract since the company will make greater profit by forcing children off buses onto the Boston Mass Transit (MBTA) and by pushing drivers to “save time” by going out in unsafe ­buses.Georgia Scott, the grandmother of school-age granddaughters in Boston and Local 8751’s treasurer, comments: “A camera is not going to protect the child. It’s me. I’m the one who will protect the child. That’s the most important piece of our work, the monitors and the drivers. We are the safety zone for the children.”In current negotiations, USW 8751 is in a fight with Veolia to remove unacceptable political, contractual and monetary concessions from the new contract. All but a few of those concessions have been beaten back, but those remaining are of critical importance.Team Solidarity continues in stalwart negotiation for a fair contract that respects them and the children riding the school buses.And while they bargain, the drivers are also wearing T-shirts with a poised cobra and a “Will Strike if Provoked” slogan.USW 8715 asks for your support in this crucial stage of contract negotiations.

Collier TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee printStanding at six foot three and weighing 210 pounds, then-TCU golfer Clayton Crawford’s teammates used to joke he should be on the basketball court, not the golf course. “We were halfway kidding,” Crawford said. “But I was serious in thinking you know what, that would be kind of fun.”This basketball season, the senior finance and real estate major, made the joke a reality. Crawford is one of six seniors playing basketball for the Horned Frogs this year. He hasn’t had much playing time, but he’s been an asset in practice and in shoring up the line-up in a season marked by numerous injuries.Crawford credits Stephen Gephardt, the men’s golf and men’s basketball assistant strength and conditioning coach, with helping Crawford find his way to the basketball court. Gephardt said he heard about Crawford’s on-court abilities from team managers.“He played on an intramural team with all the basketball managers at the time and they always told me Clay was one of their better players,” Gephardt said. “He expressed some interest to me about playing on the basketball team, so I mentioned it to Coach Dixon and said look: ‘He’s going to be a high character guy, low expectations and he’s going to work hard every day and never complain.’”Dixon suggested Crawford come in the summertime to play open gym with the guys to get to know the team, Gephardt said.Dixon said Crawford played well. “Clayton is a guy who wanted to be a part of it and he was a golfer who improved dramatically to the point where we needed him early because we didn’t have enough bodies throughout the season,” Dixon said. “As he’s gotten better, we moved him from a guy who’s playing an undersized big guy to a guy whose skills have improved out on the perimeter. He’s worked his tail off.”TCU forward Clayton Crawford looks to pass against Omaha. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comHis teammates were surprised at how easy he made the transition. “The athleticism was definitely a surprise but I know it because he works the hardest on the team in the weight room,” TCU guard Kenrich Williams said. “He did a great job of transitioning from golf to basketball and he can dunk easily, probably a little better than me.”In high school, Crawford was a two-time all-state selection in golf and basketball, but when he became a Horned Frog, he had to make a choice. “Clayton came up one weekend for a visit and I actually hadn’t watched him play golf, but he sent me a video of him dunking and all of his highlights in basketball so I thought his work ethic and athleticism would make him a great golfer,” TCU head golf coach Bill Montigel said. Crawford joined the golf team in 2014.“It was awesome,” Crawford said. “My freshman year I got to play in a few tournaments, which was a lot of fun, but growing up in Colorado, golf was seasonal, so I was only playing golf six months a year. When I came here, it was like getting thrown in the deep end of the pool because there were all these great golfers from all over the world and we were playing for hours every single day. It was a really cool experience.”The Aspen native once shot a low score of 65 (-7) in a tournament; however, that didn’t make him a standout at TCU.“I had seen some of his golf scores and they were pretty good but unfortunately for Clayton when he came in we finished 10th in the country,” Montigel said. “So he was behind some good players. He needed play time more than anything else, but he wasn’t able to get much of it because of the depth of our team.”Now, Crawford is a part of TCU’s stretch run toward its likely first NCAA Tournament appearance in 20 years. “I chose a great year to hop on,” he said. “I’m excited because it’s been so fun already, but the most fun part is still coming up: senior night, the Big 12 tournament, and postseason basketball. That’s what we’ve been working for all these months, it just keeps getting better.” World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

HUD Touts Successes, Accomplishments From Past Year

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that it served over 990,000 single-family homebuyers through HUD’s Federal Housing Administration-issued mortgage programs. “The Trump Administration continues to deliver on its promise to create greater economic opportunity for low-income families and revitalize underserved communities,” said HUD Secretary Benjamin Carson. “HUD is committed to doing its part to help families get on the path to self-sufficiency and I look forward to working with President Trump to continue building on these successes in the new year.”Among the accomplishments touted by HUD, is the Capital Reserve Ratio hit 4.84%—the strongest ratio since 2007—saved $2.7 million by lowering agency costs for shared services, and began implementing new oversight processes for Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery funds for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Department in December announced the allocation of more than $2.3 billion to support disaster-relief efforts in 15 states, including Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Island, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the North Mariana Islands. California received the most funds from this announcement, bringing in $525 million for disasters that occured in 2018. The state has received a total of more than $1 billion over the past two years. Puerto Rico will reportedly receive $277 million, on top of the $19.9 billion it received for disasters linked to 2017. The island has been granted more than $20 billion stemming from disasters in 2017. Additionally, Carson announced in October that HUD will address FHA perimeters, which will impact how the False Claims Act is invoked, during a segment on CNBC’s Squawk Box. Carson cited the need for “depository lenders to come back” as a key reason for this change.“Almost 50% of the people who originated loans that were originated by FHA were depository banks,” Carson said. “That number is down to less than 15% because of the way people fled. We really looked at that and said ‘what can we do to fix this?’” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Ben Carson Department of Housing and Urban Development Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Ben Carson Department of Housing and Urban Development 2020-01-03 Mike Albanese Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
