However, the competition in Tokyo will feature 186 men and 100 women as against 250 men and 36 women at the Rio 2016 Games.The Task Force has also announced the creation of an Athlete Ambassador Group to engage with and represent boxers. This group will provide valuable athlete input and feedback to the Task Force and promote the athlete voice and representation in boxing, for Tokyo 2020 and beyond.The Athlete Ambassadors will comprise 10 boxers, one man and one woman from each of the five regions, providing gender equality and global representation. The 10 will be selected from among nominations received from National Olympic Committees and National Federations by September 30. They will be joined by additional athletes elected by their peers at each of the four continental events.The creation of the Olympic Boxing Task Force by the IOC Executive Board (EB) followed the recommendation by the IOC EB on May 22, approved by the IOC Session on 26 June, that boxing keeps its place on the Tokyo 2020 programme, but that recognition of the International Boxing Association (AIBA) by the IOC should be suspended and evaluated after Tokyo 2020.The decision was based on the recommendations of the Inquiry Committee set up by the IOC EB on November 30, 2018, over concerns about AIBA in the areas of finance, governance, ethics and refereeing and judging.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingText description provided by the architects. To get closer to family and nature, the client decided to move from Stockholm and build a new home in the little village Oröd in the south of Sweden. The plot, which is strongly sloping with a peak in the middle, spans between a small lake to the west and a gravel road to the east. At the lake there is an old cottage from the 70’s where the family could house during the construction which the clients wished to lead themselves. In the brief, there was a wish for a simple and economical volume, but at the same time, a rich and complex home with space for play, projects, cultivation, a lot of people and large gatherings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jonte NorinThe new house was placed near the peak, which gives a light interior and views towards both forest and lake. A new entrance to the site was constructed from the eastern side. The house has a typical barn shape; a narrow and long plan with low facades and a steep gable roof at 45 degrees. The facade consists of a plane wooden panel treated with copperas, wooden windows and doors, and aluzink steel plating on the roof.

In the north, where the neighboring house stands close by, the facade is relatively closed with only small windows for ventilation. To the south there is a large glass facade that follows the slope of the gable roof and covers the entire end of the building.Save this picture!Sections As an answer to the program only three quarters of the house is fully insulated while the last quarter has a flexible climate between outdoor and indoor environments. In the same way as in many old homes where these kind of spaces were always present, the strong Swedish seasons can be taken advantage of, while at the same time a smaller area is fully heated in winter.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jonte NorinThis is a flexible space for the whole family, for projects as well as everyday chores, for resting, eating and socializing for a large part of the year, to plant and grow early in the season, conserve plants and food or paint and cobble when it is cold outdoors. The room is heated in the winter by the fireplace in the living room which has openings in both directions.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jonte NorinHalf of the building has a loft while the other half has a generous ceiling height of around 6 m. In the loft there are surfaces mainly for the children. Roof windows add skylight to bedroom, family room, the stair case and the entrance in the lower level. An opening in the wall of the loft to the living room allows the air to circulate and for communication between the plans. Towards the living room, the loft shoots out above kitchen, which in this way feels both protected and open.

British Red Cross books entire staff on the first BAME Fundraising Conference

first_imgShows how much the sector has been crying out for this. It’s going to be amazing for real! ??? https://t.co/elfjPOHkcc— Martha Awojobi (@MarthaAwojobi) July 8, 2020 BAME Fundraising ConferenceThe one-day event on 29 July “will feature incredible BAME speakers, in fundraising and beyond, who will share their insights and techniques for fundraising success”. It will “provide organisations with the tools, connections and resources to do brilliant fundraising”.Its sessions will “explore how leaders can recruit and support staff of colour to thrive within their organisation by creating truly inclusive cultures, and focusing on personal development and leadership opportunities”.Fundraising Everywhere emphasise that “we will be platforming BAME speakers who will be sharing their talents and achievements in fundraising, not just talking about diversity and inclusion”.Katie Simmons, Director of Fundraising Strategy, British Red Cross, explained why the charity had made the booking. She said:“The BAME fundraising conference is an important event for our sector. We want to ensure as many of our staff as possible are able to attend and take part in these conversations. We’re pleased our investment will support the event, including helping to pay for speakers.“We know there is a huge appetite in our organisation to share experience, listen and learn. Recently, over 700 colleagues joined an Anti-Racism and Allyship workshop held by the British Red Cross BAME network, and we wanted to provide more opportunities for colleagues to continue this conversation.” Conference topics Nevertheless she has recently secured a contribution from the actor Jay Jackson (Perd from Parks & Recreation): The British Red Cross has booked every one of its staff on the first BAME Fundraising Conference, which takes place online later this month.Now 4,000 staff will have access to the event, curated by fundraising consultant Martha Awojobi and hosted by Fundraising Everywhere. Staff will be able to attend on the day or watch recordings afterwards.This is very likely to be the first time that a major national charity has booked its entire staff to attend a single training event or conference. Indeed, it would not have been possible when conferences were primarily, and often exclusively, in person events.The idea was proposed by the British Red Cross to Fundraising Everywhere, and a fee arranged for mass attendance. Tickets for the event are available on a ‘pay what you want’ basis, to help ensure that no fundraiser or charity staff member is excluded from attending purely on cost terms.

She is a member of #CharitySoWhite’s organising committee and has been working with the Institute of Fundraising to transform the fundraising sector and make space for fundraisers of colour.She is co-presenting the conference with Camille St-Omer Donaldson at the British Red Cross.Awojobi has worked hard to recruit some outstanding speakers for the conference. She tried to secure Stormzy, but he declined the invitation: I have to take a moment to really take this in.This is my first time curating a conference and over 4000 people are attending. I haven’t even announced speakers. Advertisement I AM DEEEEAD! I can’t actually handle the fact that my name and ‘YA HEARD’ are in the same sentence.I feel like the conference is now truly blessed by the hands of Perd, aka Jay Jackson.??? https://t.co/nqD9sC2enb— Martha Awojobi (@MarthaAwojobi) July 18, 2020 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The conference has been curated by our event curator, Martha Awojobi, following research into the challenges faced by people of colour in the charity sector, and by organisations led by and/or for people of colour. The British Red Cross has experience across all of these areas and their proactiveness shows commitment to doing the right thing.”They added that they hoped other charities would follow the British Red Cross’ ambitious approach, but none had done so so far.Nevertheless, even before the booking by the Red Cross, this conference had, according to Bell and Scriver, resulted in “the fastest-selling tickets for any event” that the platform had run since it was established last year.Bell said that they were happy to provide similar all-access passes at a discounted rate for any team that wanted to attend. She said: “We need more organisations to follow suit and show their commitment to creating a just sector for all. They’ve posted their statements and started work to create more inclusive places of work, and here is a full-day conference they can attend in their own time that literally tells them how to do it.”last_img read more

Banogu, Football pay no attention to preseason accolades ahead of Southern

first_imgRobbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Twitter What to watch during quarantine Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ ReddIt printPreseason accolades have put many Horned Frogs in the spotlight this offseason, including senior defensive end Ben Banogu’s title of Preseason Defensive Player of the Year.The preseason No. 16 team placed two players, Banogu and senior wide receiver and return specialist KaVontae Turpin, on preseason All-Big 12 teams.A force on the defensive line, Banogu separated himself as one of college football’s best pass rushers last season as he recorded 8.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss, good for second and third in the Big 12 in each respective category.Head Coach Gary Patterson answers questions on the upcoming football season at Tuesday’s media availability on August 28th, 2018.Photo by Jack WallaceLast season’s successes have transitioned into preseason hype as Banogu’s name has been mentioned on four award watch lists: the Bednarik Award Watch List, the Nagurski Trophy Watch List, the Wuerffel Trophy Watch List and the Hendricks Award Watch List, along with being nominated for the AFCA Good Works Team.“I try not to pay attention to it,” Banogu said. “One of the better things I do is just putting my head down and getting to work since I got here. I don’t let the outside stuff dictate how I train. At the end of the day, you have to play football and make plays, I’m in the business of doing that.”Banogu finished his junior campaign as the conference’s Defensive Newcomer of the Year and earned a spot on the All-Big 12 first team.Fresh faces are ready to shine on offenseTCU’s offense will see many new faces beginning this weekend, including both the quarterback and on the offensive line.Patterson tabbed sophomore Shawn Robinson as the starting quarterback for Week 1 over transfer Michael Collins.“He’s very explosive and capable of doing a lot of things most quarterbacks aren’t doing,” senior right guard Trey Elliot said. “The more you play, the more you feel confident. He has a lot of confidence right now.”Patterson praised Robinson’s “escapability” as the major deciding factor between the two teammates but had one simple expectation for Robinson this weekend.“I’m just trying to find a way to win,” Patterson said. “Just like I told him before the Texas Tech game last year, we don’t have to score 40 points for us to be successful. Just score one more than Tech, and we did. That position already has so much more pressure.”TCU will look to exploit Robinson’s dual-threat abilities all season while simultaneously trying to limit any injury he may risk by using his legs outside the pocket.“There’s a lot of games in the season so you can’t decide to run over the whole world,” Patterson said. “There’s some fourth downs where you may do that, but it’s all about getting back to the huddle.”Patterson credited former quarterback Kenny Hill for preparing both Robinson and Collins for the upcoming season, calling him a “steady hand” this offseason by sharing his insight from NFL camps he attended this summer.“To have a guy come back as a student assistant and understand what he’s supposed to be seeing in the offense, from a player’s perspective, our quarterbacks have become more calm,” Patterson said. “There’s another guy in their ear saying ‘It’s going to be alright. I went through this, too, and this is what happened.’”Lined up with Robinson is a new-look offensive line that still needs to earn Patterson’s trust, a group tasked to replace four NFL-caliber players.“They’ve never played that much in a game,” Patterson said. “I feel like we are a lot better now than we were at the beginning of the spring. These guys have to get better every ball game.” No games off Banogu, Elliot, Patterson and the entire TCU football team are refusing to overlook their week one opponent, Southern University, after their 2016 season opener. South Dakota State, another FCS team, gave the Horned Frogs an opening weekend scare by dropping 41 points on them in Fort Worth.Offensive lineman Trey Elliot answers questions about the upcoming season at Tuesday’s media availability on August 28th, 2018.Photo by Jack WallacePatterson’s squad looks to take the season week by week to limit distractions, especially with their week three showdown with Ohio State University in Arlington looming.“A lot of things stand out because we’re not going to take an opponent for granted,” Elliot said. “We’re going to look at them like we look at Ohio State. They’re Ohio State for us. They’re a great team, we’re going to look at every team the same way.”In Patterson’s eyes, Southern is as good an opponent they’ll face all year. The Jaguars will return four of their five starters on the offensive line from last season, and all three of their quarterbacks are experienced, with each seeing playing time last season.The Jaguars will also return nine defensive starters and saw their best wide receivers return to school.Led by Robinson, the Horned Frogs will kick off the 2018 season 11 a.m. Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium against the Southern Jaguars.Patterson said he is grateful for the early start, giving his team more time to prepare for next Friday’s contest against Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Evolutionary temperature adaptation and the calcium regulation of fish actomyosin ATPases

first_imgActomyosins have been isolated from the white skeletal muscles of fish inhabiting thermal environments with characteristically low seasonal temperature variations for example, Antarctica, arctic rivers and the equatorial oceans. Calcium regulation of actomyosin ATPase was correlated with environmental temperature. Increased assay temperature resulted in a progressive loss of calcium sensitivity. This occurred at lower temperatures in the more cold adapted species. In general cold adapted ATPases have lower activation enthalpies (ΔH‡) and higher activities at low temperatures than their tropical counterparts. In contrast to environmental temperature acclimation (Johnston, 1979) calcium regulatory proteins of stenothermal species were not directly involved in the temperature adaptation of actomyosins. Similar relationships were obtained between environmental temperature and thermodynamic activation parameters for both natural and desensitized actomyosins from which tropomyosin and troponins had been removed. Instead, evidence is presented that the mechanism of temperature adaptation over evolutionary time periods involves selective modifications in the structure of both the heavy and light chains of myosin.last_img read more
