Sonny Bill Williams successful in fourth professional fight

first_imgMonday Jun 6, 2011 Sonny Bill Williams successful in fourth professional fight This past weekend there was a whole lot of interesting stuff happening in the world of rugby, the least of which was Sonny Bill Williams’ fourth professional boxing match, but here’s a post about it anyway.The All Black star in the making went up against Alipate Liava, a 43 year old who is currently on disability benefits as he’s not fit to work because of an elbow problem. Williams has acknowledged that his boxing career is a slow work in progress and he’s not yet where he wants to be, but many would have hoped this would have been more of a test for him.The twenty five year old was never troubled, and despite taking a few shots to the jaw, came out unscathed, much to the relief of New Zealand and Crusaders coaches Graham Henry and Todd Blackadder, who were both watching in the crowd.“He hardly got hit, which is the main thing,” Henry said. “He kept moving. He’s a good athlete. He moves well. He didn’t get touched often, which is great. I think he’s feeling good about himself and he’s pleased it’s over so he can concentrate on other things.”“If it was Richie McCaw, or Dan Carter, or whoever it might be, we would be here to support him,” he added, and also mentioned that there wont be another fight before the World Cup, as his All Blacks contract stipulates that condition clearly.Williams won the fight by a unanimous points decision, with Liava’s record now standing at eight successive losses, after he won his first four fights in his 12-bout career.The positive that came from the rather bizarre mismatch is that money was raised for Christchurch’s disaster relief, of which Williams donated a significant sum from his own pocket. :: Related Posts :: Sonny Bill Williams pushed all the way in third pro fight (Jan 2011) Sonny Bill Williams boxing again, before heading to Canterbury (July 2010) The best of Sonny Bill Williams for Canterbury in 2010 Sonny Bill Williams makes his boxing debut in Brisbane (June 2009) Time: 02:22ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Ramar residence is located in Sunset Park in Santa Monica, about 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean. It lays on an up hill lot facing South West. The scope of the project was an integral interior and exterior remodel of an existing 2,150 SF single family residence built in 1958. Apart from the remodel, a studio space was required for one of the owners, who is a fashion designer-where she would be able to design and execute her work, and have a lounge area. We decided to do a detached structure located at the rear of the lot in order to take advantage of the views, light and ocean breeze.Save this picture!© Ignacio EspigaresSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Ignacio EspigaresThe parcel coverage was close to the maximum square footage allowed by the planning department (only 230 square ft were allowed). This constraint brought the design opportunity to utilize outdoor space and integrate it into the design – the roof structure extends past the enclosed studio space to cover an exterior lounge area of 106 SF adjacent to the East, and a 56 SF exterior walkway in front of the studio. Floor to ceiling glass sliding doors separate the studio from the outdoor spaces – when these doors are open, the studio, lounge and walkway become a single space of 400 SF.  The southern overhang protects the studio from the midday sun. At the edge of the overhang 4 sliding floor to ceiling shade structures made out of aluminum frame  and cedar slats protect from the morning and afternoon sun as well as mitigate the prevailing winds.Save this picture!© Ignacio EspigaresSave this picture!© Ignacio EspigaresThe scope of the existing house remodel includes the design of a new master bathroom, full kitchen remodel, new finishes throughout the interior of the house, new exterior facade and balcony stucco treatment and new fenestration. For the interior, a neutral palette of  black, grey and white tones was selected. The fireplace wall and stairs are cladded with cold rolled steel. With regards to the exterior structural work was performed in order to extend existing openings of the living/dining area to allow a better view of the ocean. A dark grey stucco was selected for the exterior. The access and front yard of the house was redesigned, a new cantilevered concrete stair allows access directly to the second floor.Save this picture!© Ignacio EspigaresProject gallerySee allShow lessCODO /Suzuyo Head Office / Shuhei Goto ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPine house / Canalli ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Juan Saez Pedraja Area:  2380 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Manufacturers: C.R.

Much like the energetic effort he exerts on the hardwood, Howard is similarly devoted to several charitable initiatives, including his recently launched “Breathe Again” campaign, a grassroots movement designed to prompt dialogue that can help bring groups of people together.While touring the Hathaway-Sycamores’ facility that’s home to children and teens, many of whom have suffered severe trauma and neglect, the NBA standout wore a T-shirt with the phrase “Breathe Again” on the front and the message “Let’s Talk, Let’s Walk, Let’s Breathe Again” on the back. Howard explained, “I just felt like I wanted to do something different to try to bridge the gap between races and people in general. There’s a lot of stuff going on in our society,” he added, “and I feel we all need to breathe again. And when situations arise in life, instead of reacting, we have to breathe. Instead of pointing to the problem, we need to point to the solution. We need to come together.”Following the tour, Howard sat down with the Hathaway-Sycamores’ youngsters, sharing insights, inspiration, and answering a host of questions; from what’s his shoe size (18), to his most memorable experience (winning a Gold Medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China.)The 6’ 11” Howard towered above his rapt audience, whom he encouraged to stay hopeful, positive, and focused on achieving their goals. He also emphasized the importance of believing in themselves and being supportive of each other. Howard then asked each youngster what they wanted to be when they grow up. Answers included serving in the military, designing video games, playing professional football, and specializing in sports medicine. Howard instructed the boys to commit their goals to paper and to not give up, regardless of whatever obstacles life presents.Howard noted that he “likes to give back,” as evidenced by the D12 Foundation (http://www.d12foundation.org/) that he created in 2010. Dedicated to improving the lives of youth in American and International communities, the Foundation focuses on four areas: promoting education; sowing seeds of generosity; championing leadership as well as inspiring dreams; inspiring hope and recovery in unexpected times.

Outdoor Property Enhancements and ROI

The National Association of Realtors and the National Association of Landscape Professionals teamed up to determine which outdoor property enhancements earned the greatest returns when it was time to sell. “This report validates that landscaping is an investment worth making, offering the immediate benefits of increased enjoyment of your property, as well as desirable long-term value that holds if or when it comes time to sell,” says Missy Henriksen, VP of Public Affairs at the National Association of Landscape Professionals. “From lawn and tree care to installing a new fire or water feature or landscape lighting, there’s no shortage of opportunities to enhance your landscape and to reap the benefits these upgrades provide.”The outdoor investment likely to reap the greatest returns for a homeowner is simply a standard lawn care service. According to the “2018 Remodeling Report: Outdoor Features,” homeowners will recover 267 percent of the cost of standard lawn care when selling their home. The report estimates standard lawn care costs $375, and homeowners can expect to recover $1,000 on their home sale. Landscape maintenance and tree care both bring a 100 percent return on investment. An irrigation system installation is likely to recoup 86 percent of the cost at sale, and an overall landscape upgrade is likely to recoup 83 percent of the cost.Of the 13 outdoor projects the report covers, adding a new pool recovered the least amount of what was spent on the project, at 43 percent. Lighting incurred 50 percent ROI, according to the report. “Realtors understand that a home’s first impression is its curb appeal, so when it comes time to sell, a well-manicured yard can be just as important as any indoor remodel,” said Elizabeth Mendenhall, President of NAR and a sixth-generation Realtor. She added, “Even homeowners with no immediate plans to sell can gain more enjoyment and satisfaction from their home by taking on a project to revive their outdoor spaces.” In addition to calculating the ROI for outdoor projects when it comes to resale, NAR and the National Association of Landscape Professionals also surveyed homeowners to find out how much joy each type of outdoor project brings to homeowners. Fire features and irrigation systems earned a score of 10 out of 10 on the “joy scale.” Wood decks, water features, statement landscaping, and new patios all earned scores of 9.7 or higher. Residential properties aren’t the only ones that can benefit from extra attention given to landscaping. The report found that standard lawn care, overall landscape upgrades, and landscape management services are also good investments for commercial properties. All three are likely to bring high returns when the property sells. However, the report does not list percentage returns for commercial property projects.
