Start with fit Bimini

first_imgWith horses such as TRADITIONAL STORM (29-1) and CLASSY AVIATOR (7-1) scoring notable upsets in the fifth and ninth races at Caymanas Park last Saturday, the Pick-9 had no takers and the carry-over to tomorrow’s programme stands at $1.7 million. Both Super-6s, however, start anew with the guaranteed minimum of $750,000. The Pick-9 will embrace races three to 11 on tomorrow’s card, the first Super-6 from race one to six, the late Super-6 from race six to 11. We look at the first Super-6, which commences with a restricted allowance race over 1100 metres, to be contested by seven starters, including the very fit BIMINI. Trained by Patrick Smellie for owner-breeder Don Wehby, the five-year-old chestnut mare ran a big race in defeat on New Year’s Day when finishing 11/4 lengths second to DR BANNER over this trip in a fast-run race (1:06.3) and with her main rivals JESSIE’S FAVOURITE, a recent winner, and RAISING THE BAR, both speedy types, not as impressive, the Seeking The Glory offspring looks the right choice with Paul ‘Country’ Francis aboard. She last won over the round five course on July 31 last year, and in light of the recent run, could be used as a banker. Next on the programme is a $350,000 – $300,000 claiming race over the round-five course and on the strength of his recent runaway win over the straight, FRANKENSTORM looks all set to repeat. True, he is steeping up in class for this race, moving from claiming $250,000 to $350,000, but he won by all of 6-1/2 lengths in a fairly good time and over this snappy trip, should provide in-form jockey Jevanne Erwin with another winner in this new season. DIFERENTGENERATION and ARGUMENT DONE are twin dangers in the eight-horse field. Race number three over 1200 metres, this for $250,000- $210,000 claiming horses, looks tailored for the consistent CHEERS, who lost out in a tight photo finish to LEGENDARY PLEASURE recently. Veteran trainer Robert Darby Sr, who claimed him from his previous trainer on December 10, will have another try with the 6-y-o mare and with the trip more to her liking and champion apprentice Bebeto Harvey up. The fourth race for maiden four-year-olds and up over 1300 metres should be won by SMASH AMUSEMENT, who has been knocking at the door. The 4-y-o filly, who will be ridden by Aaron Chatrie for trainer Andrew McDonald, finished 5-3/4 lengths third to hot favourite CORALANDO over the distance on December 31 and even with BUCKALUCK also running creditably for third to KIMALI STAR in division two of the same race, SMASH AMUSEMENT, who finished behind a faster time, is given the edge. FIRST SUPER- FANCIES (1) BIMINI (2) FRANKENSTORM/ DIFERENTGENERATION (3) CHEERS/ ROYAL GIRL (4) SMASH AMUSEMENT/ BUCKALUCK (5) BLUE TRADITION/ EARTH ANGEL (6) DEMOLITION BOY/ GIRSHOM EVERYTHING WRONG Race number five, the Eight Thirty Sprint (Division One) for maiden three-year-old fillies over the straight, will see 11 facing the starters, including five debutants. They include EARTH ANGEL and PAPER CHASER, both of whom have looked well forward at exercise, along with BLUE TRADITION and DELPHINIUM, both having disappointed on their recent debuts. It should prove highly competitive among the quartet, but BLUE TRADITION (Linton Steadman up), a bay filly by Blue Pepsi Lodge out of Sense Of Tradition, did everything wrong (sis, ran wide) when finishing fourth as the howling favourite on her recent debut and with the tongue tie now fitted, is ready to rumble. Then, take the consistent DEMOLITION BOY (Harvey up) to lead home PARTY CITY and GIRSHOM in the sixth race over 1500 metres to be contested by 13 starters.last_img read more

Denman Fine Hair No-Slip Banana Jaw Clip : Excellent

first_imgDenman Fine Hair No-Slip Banana Jaw Clip, 10 cm LengthIdeal for securing your fine hair just as long as you need or want it toFast and easy way to style hairWith patented no-slip grip technology Good product but took about 3 weeks to arrive. Was advertised as suitable for fine hair i have to disagree as my hair fell through the grip easily wouldn’t recommend. Didnt arrive on time and its nothing like i thought it would be its not going to hold my hair. I loved it, i hate un tie hair, i can even sleep with it, no problem at all,. Perfect hair clip! Fine does what it is supposed to do. Great size clip and always keeps my fine hair in place. I liked this grip so much that i bought a second one. Good for fine hair Wish they did it in more Posted on October 4, 2019Author Nathalie DuboisCategories Clips & BarrettesTags Denman Nice Not sure would be any good for thick hair. Product used to clip up my wet curly medium length hair to air dry. The clips are so light that it is easy to forget that they are in (not a good look to go out in when used for hair drying). They have a brilliant hold / grip as they do not move. Teeth open wide to make removal of clip easy once hair is dry. They could easily be used for up hairdos but that is not what i wanted them for. Timely delivery and very good clips. I originally bought a few from boots, and loved them so much that i sought out replacements here. These are quite simply the best grips for fine hair – my hair is waist lenght and so silky and baby soft/fine that it needs clipping up daily to protect it – i need two of these used together and they are fabulous. They keep my hair in place with no slippage. They are comfortable and gentle. Absolutely love them and highly recommend. I’ve finally found the perfect hair clip. Having read the reviews i ordered this clip and have since bought another 5. I would recommend this clip. I really love the top well made, nice material – overall a good buy worth the money in my opinion. This clip stays put however if you’ve got thick hair like me, it won’t grab it all in the first place. Great for fine hair as it stays put. They hair clamps are nice and strong. This clip is just what i was looking for, but could not find in shops. Exactly right and good price. This clip is really good quality & not to bulky, it’s also long & thin so encompasses all the hair & is also sturdy. If you have fine hair this is perfect, i don’t buy any others. Excellent clip , worked even on my fine hair ,. Good for fine hairwish they did it in more colours.

Geocaching HQ Says Geocaching without Speaking a Word

first_img<> Share with your Friends:More Moving forward, we hope to offer more Hosted Visits with ASL Interpretation as well as find ways to improve and increase accessibility to the sport of Geocaching for all people. We’d love to know your thoughts, ideas and stories below. How can we make Geocaching available to everyone who wants to play? What great ideas have you seen to ensure there are variety in geocaches and accessibility for all? Geocaching HQ Hosted Visit On March 25th, it was our pleasure to invite two ASL interpreters to our Geocaching HQ Hosted Visit for the first time! The hour long visit provided the opportunity for deaf geocachers to come to HQ and get the same experience as any of our other guests. It was an awesome experience for guests and staff. We covered Geocaching history and the growth of our company from 3 employees to now just under 80, swapped geocaching stories from back home, and traded a few trackables, too. The hour flew by too quickly but we already have plans to invite the interpreters back another time! center_img Editor’s Note: What you’re seeing above is a word that sparks the imagination and inspires exploration. The ingredients a person must possess to go geocaching include only a spirit for adventure. It’s not bound by any particular facilities and especially not bound by hearing. The blog post you’re about to read is from Holly Walker. She’s the guest experience coordinator at Geocaching HQ who hosted our first visit with an American Sign Language interpreter for deaf geocachers. Geocaching HQ LobbyGeocaching For All!At Geocaching Headquarters (HQ), our goal is to make everyone an explorer and make every location an adventure. One of the most fun adventures for us is hosting guests from around the world here in our awesome lobby! Each week, Geocaching HQ schedules a limited number of Hosted Visits for the Geocaching community. It’s a great way to see a behind-the-scenes look at what happens here at HQ, meet the lackeys and hear about new things we are working on, and get the opportunity to log the official Geocaching HQ geocache. We literally get people from all over the world who travel to our headquarters here in Seattle, WA. Recently we realized that we might be missing an important opportunity to meet and engage with a large number of our worldwide geocachers, in particular, our deaf community!

Learn to Create an Animated Short Film in 10 Parts

first_imgLearn how to create an animated short film from scratch with these comprehensive free tutorials!If you’ve ever had a great idea for a short animated film, but didn’t know how to make it a reality, then this 10 part series of tutorials can help you make that dream come true. Based on a quote from Malcolm Gladwell’s David and Goliath, Giants is a one minute short film created by School of Motion to demonstrate all of the skills, processes, and techniques required to make an animated short film from scratch.Spanning over 8 hours, the series walks through starting with an idea, creating the basic edit, building the characters, animation, detailed compositing, and finally sound design. The series also covers the use of applications and tools like the Adobe Creative Suite, Nuke, CINEMA 4D, and Trapcode Particular.You can download (for free!) all the assets used in the making of this short film by signing up for SchoolofMotion.com’s subscriber list.Turning an Idea into an Animated Short FilmIn the first tutorial, School of Motion’s Joey Korenman sets the scene for the series, addresses the ambition behind it, and explains what you can expect to get out of it if you stick with it. He also demonstrates how he goes about creating a mood board, storyboard and initial script, laying the foundations for all the work to come.Step one for me in these kind of situation is just to saturate my brain with reference. I find it can help me generate ideas when I can sift through a bunch of cool artwork.Compositing an Animated Short FilmIn the 8th part of the tutorial series, you can take a deep dive into the art of compositing in Nuke, a high-end visual effects compositing package. If you want to get your hands on Nuke for free, download a copy of Nuke non-commercial and play with most of the program’s full feature set at no cost.In this hour long tutorial, you can see Joey turn his initial rendered frames into final composited shots by blending several different passes together for each shot. It’s interesting to see Joey directly reference shots from another spot that has similar art direction, learning from the perfection of that project in order to apply it to his own.What I usually do is work with them in this order: the diffuse pass, then adding in this order specular pass, reflection pass, the ambient light pass, the GI pass…Check out the full 10 part series of tutorials over on SchoolofMotion.com.Check out these PremiumBeat articles that explore different aspects of animation:4 Places to Find Free Reference Footage for Character AnimationHear from the Pros: What It’s Like To Edit AnimationVideo Inspiration: The 12 Basic Principles of AnimationFeeling motivated to follow your dreams of making an animated short film?

Harassment pushes Dalit family to the brink

first_imgAlleged constant humiliation by some upper caste people forced a Dalit family in Paltupuri village under Hastinapur police station to attempt ending their lives, leading to the death of one, while two are battling for life at a private hospital in Meerut.The police said they were not approached but the victims’ relatives alleged that the family had lost faith in the local police after their previous complaint bore no fruit. This time, the daughter had dialled the 1090 number of the U.P. Police but did not get any help. Humiliated and threatened, Satyapal Singh* consumed poison with his wife, Shivrani, 50, and daughter Rita. Shivrani died, while Satyapal and Rita are in a “critical condition”.“They are not on ventilator support but their blood pressure continues to be low,” said Dr. Rahul Kathuriya of Sushila Jaswantrai Hospital in Meerut.When The Hindu visited Paltupuri, around 40 km from Meerut, on Friday, Sher Singh, elder brother of Satyapal, said that on April 15, Shivrani was walking down a lane when she was hit by the bike of one of the boys of the Kashyap family, part of the dominant group in the village. The Kashyaps are dhimars who come under the OBC category. “She retaliated, which led to an attack by the Kashyaps. They abused her with casteist slurs and tried to molest her. When my brother intervened, he was beaten up. The attackers threatened to kill his son Rohan.” Sher Singh alleged that his brother’s family was facing repeated harassment at the hands of the Kashyaps because Satyapal was a graduate in agriculture and his children were “doing well academically” — Rita, 22, studies B.Sc. at Delhi University and Rohan, 20, is a BCA student. The brother-sister duo were also taunted and harassed, said Sher Singh. “The latest was when Rita visited the village to cast her vote. Being of modest physique, Rohan could not take them on.” Rohan told The Hindu that in 2016 there was an attempt to molest his sister. “She was being stalked by Ravi [the main accused] for the last four years. When we complained, the accused’s family colluded with the police and faked injuries. They made a case against us. We were left with no choice but to compromise at the behest of the local Nagar Palika chairman.”No help from kin In the latest case, Rohan said, his father approached a court in Meerut directly under Section 156/3 of CrPC on April 16. “When he told his brothers and other family members about his decision, they refused to stand by him. He was left with no choice. We are educated, we could not stoop to their level. My father called my sister home from Delhi. On April 17, they consumed poison when I went out to take an exam in Mawana.”Sher Singh admitted that they had developed cold feet. “We told Satyapal that he could shift out of the village as his children were well-educated but we had to live with them [Kashyaps]. He went into a shell after that.”The police have registered an FIR against eight accused under Sections 147, 323, 452, 354, 352, 306 of the IPC and Section 3(2)5 of SC/ST Act. Five accused held“Five of the eight accused, including Ravi, have been nabbed. The rest would be arrested soon,” said Avinash Pandey, SP (Rural), Meerut. “I don’t know about the past, but had the local police been approached this time we would have taken action,” he said.Mr. Pandey said the District Magistrate has initiated action against the village chowkidar. “I have sought a report from Circle Officer, Mawana, about the previous complaints. 100 number was not dialled. The daughter dialled the Women Power Line 1090, where the process is graded. First, a warning is sent to the accused. We will spread awareness that in serious cases, people should call 100 or CUG (Closed User Group) numbers of police officers. The girl has recorded her statement with the SDM. We are providing security to the family,” he said.The male members of the accused’s family have left the village and the female members are avoiding the media.

India to Overtake China to Become Largest LPG Importer

first_imgIndia’s import of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will exceed China’s in December this year, making it the largest importer in the world, according to shipping data by Thomson Reuters Eikon.India will receive 2.4 million tons LPG in December, ahead of China, which will be shipping 2.3 million tons. India’s LPG consumption has been boosted by its push towards the fuel as opposed to wood and animal dung fires.However, India’s monthly average imports in 2017 were about 1.7 million tons, still behind China’s 2.2 million ton. India has overtaken Japan, which is now placed third with 1 million tons.“The growth in India is amazing. The fact that they have grown from 140 million subsidized household connections in 2015 to 181 million now is very impressive,” Ted Young, the Chief Financial Officer at Dorian LPG, told Reuters.LPG is used for cooking, transport and the petrochemical industry in India. In 2016-17, the use of kerosene, which is used for lighting and cooking purposes in rural areas, decreased by 21 per cent to 5.3 million tons due to the push for LPG use, according to Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell, an arm of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas.In 2016-17, consumption of LPG increased 9.8 per cent to 21.5 million tons. During the same period, state-owned Indian Oil Corp. (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corp. and Hindustan Petroleum Corp. issued 3.25 crore new connections, including 2 crore connections under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, the “LPG-for poor women” scheme. It was the highest number of new connections provided in any year.There will be a 10 per cent increase in 2017-18 in LPG consumption, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas said, Hindu BusinessLine reported.The biggest supplier of LPG to India is the Middle East region, but the United States also joined in early 2017. From 50,000 tons, it is now shipping 100,000 tons, but that is still only one tenth of what the Middle East exports to India. Related ItemsChinaEconomyFuellast_img read more
