Come play! : Australia's bid for the 2018 FIFA World Cup or

AUSTRALIA’S BID FOR THE 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP™ OR 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP™ “The proposal in this Bid Book represents the hopes and dreams of perhaps the world’s most sports-loving nation. Australia will welcome the world for a FIFA World Cup™, as we have welcomed the world since our nationhood little more than 200 years ago. Our Bid is financially and operationally secure. We are ready to host FIFA’s flagship event, and FIFA can be certain Australia will fully deliver on its responsibilities and obligations as a host nation. The expansion of our excellent sports infrastructure will leave a long and lasting benefit to football in Australia and the region.” The Honourable Kevin Rudd MP Prime Minister of Australia “A quarter of Australians were born overseas, and three million Australians speak a language other than English at home. Every nation represented at a FIFA World Cup™ in Australia will have its own base of support and be able to call Australia a “home away from home”. As a member of the Asian Football Confederation, and a former member of the Oceania Football Confederation, Australia can be a bridge between these regions and an integral player in the development of football in the Asia-Pacific. As hosts, we would consider it our obligation and our proud duty, in partnership with FIFA, to find ways to use the world’s greatest event to bring help where it is needed most. Football is a powerful vehicle for sustainable social cohesion, inclusion and equity.” Frank Lowy AC Chairman Football Federation Australia...

Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis - DiVA

Henan Li Marine Technology Submission date: June 2012 Supervisor: Svein Sævik, IMT Norwegian University of Science and Technology Department of Marine Technology THESIS WORK SPRING 2012 for Stud. tech. Henan Li Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis Spennings- og utmatnings-analyse av fleksible stigerø r The flexible riser represents a vital part of many oil and gas production systems. During operation of such risers, several failure incidents may take place e.g. caused by fatigue and corrosion. In limit cases where inspections indicate damage, the decision making with regard to continue operation or replacing the riser may have large economic and environmental consequences. Hence, the decision must be based on accurate models to predict the residual strength of the pipe. In most applications, one or several steel layers are used to carry the hoop stress resulting from internal pressure. This is further combined with two layers of cross-wound armour tendons (typically 40-60 tendons in one layer installed with an angle of 35o with the pipe’s length axis) acting as the steel tensile armour to resist the tension and end cap wall force resulting from pressure. The riser fatigue performance may in many cases be governed by the dynamic stresses in the tensile armour. The existing lifetime models for such structures is primarily based on inherent assumptions with respect to the slip properties of the tensile armour. This thesis work focus on establishing a FEM based model for analysis of the tensile armour, so as to analyse the stress and slip behaviour when exposed to different load conditions. The thesis work is to be based on the project work performed and shall include the following steps: 1) Literature study, including flexible pipe technology, failure modes and design criteria, analytical methods for stress analysis of flexible pipes,...

How to Train Like the Kenyans Since the Kenyans dominate our ...

How to Train Like the Kenyans Since the Kenyans dominate our sport like no country has ever dominated any sport, what can we learn from them? While it’s true that a big reason they do so is their ability to train harder (which we’ll address), let’s first talk about things they do that allow them to reach their potential more than most – things that are practical and applicable for us in Kansas City. Workout Recovery 1) They prepare the body better for every workout with an extra slow warm up for the first 5-10 minutes: 5 minutes a mile or slower than 5K pace > the slower you begin each run, the more productive each run will become. 2) They help the body to recover better from every workout with an extra slow cool down for the last 5-10 minutes: 5 minutes a mile or slower than 5K pace > the less you stretch & do self massage (i.e. foam roll), the more you should cool down properly 3) They help the body recover better for the next hard workout by going extra slow on recovery runs: 2:30-4 minutes a mile slower than 5K pace > the easier you go on the easy days, the harder you’ll be able to go on the hard days In-Between Workouts Recovery They help the body recover better with: 1) fresh, seasonal, local real food > try to eat more food from the local farmer’s market – the less processed, the better 2) lots of sleep and non-active rest (i.e. lying down to get off their feet). 10 hours of sleep each night and 1-2 hours of napping > try to get more sleep and rest. 3) simplifying their life with very little distraction – no TV, computers, cell phones, iPads or other technological devices. Outside of basic things like washing their clothes and eating they’ll allow for reading or going for a walk,...

Healing Gardens: Creating Places for Restoration, Meditation, and Sanctuary What are the defining characteristics that make a healing garden? Keywords: healing gardens, restoration gardens, sanctuary gardens A thesis Prepared by Annalisa Gartman Vapaa Committee Chair: Dr. Margaret Bryant Committee Member: Brian Katen Committee Member: Bill Mills Defense Date: April 29, 2002 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University College of Architecture and Urban Studies Master’s of Landscape Architecture Abstract The “healing garden” is an evolving concept that is gaining popularity today. What is a healing garden? Why is one garden called a healing garden and not another? How is a healing garden defined? In what way are gardens healing? This thesis describes the ways in which healing gardens are beneficial in healthcare and residential settings.

Oil Change
by Handmatige installatie 0 Comments favorite 11 Viewed Download 0 Times

Motor Oil Place the bike on the center stand (not the kick stand) The Drain Plug and the Dipstick for the motor oil are located on the right side of the bike. Place a drain pan under the Drain Plug and remove the plug with a 17mm socket or wrench. Lancepowersports.com A small spring and Screen Type Oil Filter will also pop out. Place these two items off to the side and wash them clean by flushing them with new 10W-40 motor oil. (If you keep the dipstick out of the motor, it will drain the oil faster) Let the motor oil drain until only a few drops fall every few seconds. Put the cleaned Oil Filter and the spring back into the engine as shown to the left. If done incorrectly, the filter will not be efficient in collecting dirt and sludge from the engine. Screw back on the drain plug using a torque wrench. The recommended torque for this bolt is 15 lbs/ft. Lancepowersports.com Using a funnel, pour 0.75 quarts of 10W-40 Motor Oil into the engine. We recommend using non-synthetic oil for the first oil change to help the engine break in properly. After the first oil change, feel free to use synthetic oil. Check the oil with the dipstick. Place the dipstick in the motor but do not screw it in. Pull it out and make sure that the oil reading is within the hash-marks, then add or drain oil accordingly until it is. Screw in the dipstick and run the bike for a minute or two and check the level to make sure that you have the proper level. Lancepowersports.com
