Two senior inter county teams in contention at the business



all is not perfect in the world of hurling

Last weekend’s exploits at Croke Park canada goose outlet reviews were spellbinding and on occasions, out of this world, says Dr Ed Coughlan.

Peter Duggan’s wonder point for Clare against Galway on Saturday evening to level the scores for the umpteenth time and Nicky Quaid’s inch perfect block for Limerick on Cork’s Samus Harnedy to keep them in the game on Sunday afternoon, were goose outlet canada two standout moments among many.

canada goose coats This may have been compounded by the images of players from each team in both games, and in particular Cork and Clare, running out of gas almost as soon as the extra time period commenced such canada goose outlet shop was the energy expended on all sides in normal time. canada goose coats

canada goose factory sale It would be very easy to look at hurling through rose tinted canada goose outlet online glasses at this official canada goose outlet moment in time and ignore some glaringly obvious points for examination. Such clinical scrutiny is made all the more difficult as quite serendipitously; RT showed the first of three episodes of their canada goose outlet uk sale new documentary series The Game, which charts the history of hurling in spectacular fashion. canada goose factory sale

Hold onto your hats as canada goose outlet online uk hurling hyperbole is set to go into overdrive.

For such a great sport, it is quite astonishing to see so few canada goose outlet store uk counties give it the time of day in favour of the bigger ball. The divide between hurling and football appears to be getting wider, rather than closer. Clubs do not seem to be able to agree terms to manage the health and wellbeing of both codes equally.

canada goose store All is fair and equal at the underage levels, but as soon as it gets serious and county championships appear on the horizon, battle lines are drawn and decisions are forced on players and management alike to side with one code over the other. canada goose store

canadian goose jacket Clubs are often relieved when one code’s team is knocked out early so that they can now concentrate on the other for the remainder of the season. Incidentally, this lopsided support can change from one season to the next, depending on who is knocked out first. canadian goose jacket

buy canada goose jacket cheap There appears to be no formal strategy in place to give both codes the time of day to develop and progress over a number of seasons. buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose Outlet If the hurlers are knocked out early, it’s all football from then on with hardly a sliotar struck for the months canada goose outlet sale that follow, and vice versa should the footballers make an early exit, hurling will enjoy a feast of attention. Canada Goose Outlet

canada goose uk shop Such conduct is accepted because when clubs look to the inter county model they see much of the same behaviour. It is for this reason that what Galway are achieving should be applauded. Two senior inter county teams in contention at the business end of the season is no mean feat in this canada goose black friday sale day and age. The same may be said for Dublin, where a framework for equitable support across all codes, men and women, is breaking the mould. canada goose uk shop

Canada Goose Parka But how many other counties can truthfully say that both codes are treated with the same support at the start of each season, regardless of whether they’ll be in contention or not? In addition, where is there evidence of a long term plan to elevate both codes within each county canada goose outlet store equally? You can all but ignore the political speak that promises so much. The players in most counties know what’s what and in most cases, the code they’re in will determine whether they’re treated as first or second class citizens. Canada Goose Parka

canada goose Absolutely, right now, hurling is enjoying a resurgence of interest thanks to the almost superhuman efforts of players from a handful of counties. But that’s all it is, a canada goose outlet uk handful of counties. canada goose

canada goose coats on sale How national can a sport be if it struggles to get people to commit to it canada goose outlet within its own nation? canada goose coats on sale

Canada Goose Coats On Sale For all the noise about the elitism card that is often thrown at football, maybe it is more apparent in hurling. The top teams only ever play against each other, such is canada goose factory outlet the structure of canada goose outlet the league and even more so in the championship, where progression up through the levels is very difficult, almost impossible in some cases. Canada Goose Coats On Sale

No doubt Dublin football are enjoying an incredible spell of dominance at the moment, but remove them from Leinster and no one could accurately predict, canada goose outlet nyc with confidence, who would canada goose jacket outlet win that province. Remove them from the All Ireland series and any one of eight teams could rightfully walk away as champions. Yet, if you go beneath the surface of hurling’s elite the strength, depth and breadth of the game is not there.

Of course, it is somewhat fruitless to compare the two codes, canada goose outlet in usa as they are so different.

However, for all the glory and apparent skill on display last weekend and hopefully again this weekend, when Galway and Clare go at again to finally find a winner, there was a lot of damning statistics for the game of hurling that would not be so forgiving in a game of football.

uk canada goose For instance, across both games on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, there was a whopping 123 scores, but there was also 73 wides. uk canada goose

canada goose uk outlet Considering how much time the ball was actually in play across the three hours of hurling, having 196 shots on goal is bordering on the ludicrous. canada goose uk outlet

Has hurling become its own worst enemy in following the mantra of ‘win your own battle’ to the point of crazy? However, if the numbers on hooking and blocking are anything to go by, the battles canada goose outlet black friday are not even being contested. Incredibly, Cork, with its six hooks had the same amount as the other three teams put together. Clare had only one hook and one block and made only 19 tackles last Saturday. Is this what hurling has become?

Canada Goose sale Minimal interplay within a team because the puck outs are now so long and minimal interplay between canada goose outlet canada teams because the aim of the game has become catch and shoot, taken in turns. The physical condition of players, especially where Limerick and Galway are concerned, has elevated their capacity far beyond the intricacies of the game of yesteryear. Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose Jackets But the intoxicating effects of any high scoring sport can mask cracks elsewhere. Hurling has long since been the sport that captures the imagination and interest of those who are new to it. Canada Goose Jackets

cheap canada goose uk However, it needs to be more than just a high scoring lottery. cheap canada goose uk

Gaelic football is going through a transition right now as it sorts out its house in relation to the coaching and use of tactics, a word for many years that was seen as forbidden across our national canada goose outlet jackets games, however, it might well emerge the better for it.

The question now lies with the hurling fraternity. Are they prepared to move with the times and look to progress the sport beyond the traditions of times canada goose outlet parka past? Drama counts for only so much before the unpredictable becomes predictable.

Concurs Naţional “ Patrimoniul cultural istoric şi natural-zestrea comunităţilor locale “



Societatea de Ştiinţe Istorice din România organizează în această perioadă concursul naţional “ Patrimoniul cultural istoric şi natural-zestrea comunităţilor locale “. La această competiţie participă şi o echipă de la Liceul George Călinescu din Constanţa formată din Alexandra Anja Mogoşanu,  Viviana Andreea Nichifor, Fabian Cotan şi Carmen Nicoleta Gheţu , toţi clasa a 10-a. Ei sunt coordonaţi de profesorul Eugenia Crăciun.

Echipa liceului George Călinescu şi-au propus readucerea la lumină a Casei Alleon şi recunoaşterea contribuţiilor culturale și sociale aduse de către comunitatea evreiască din orașul Constanta , aceștia jucând un rol activ în dezvoltarea culturală și economică a orașului, respectând sugestiile și profitând de oportunitățile comunității urbane și politică oficială. De la sfârșitul secolului al XIX-lea până în jurul anului 1930, numărul comunității evreiești membrii au crescut – atât ca număr cât și ca putere economică. Deși activitatea comercială și bancară sunt în esență, imobilul nu trebuie trecut cu vederea, deoarece au lăsat numeroase urme în public și spațiul privat al orașului. Evreii au contribuit la constituirea fondului istoric al Constanței, astăzi, o serie de clădiri reprezentative au devenit monumente ale arhitectură. Este un fapt nefericit că actuala comunitate evreiască din Constanța are doar 59 de membri, care îi includea pe cei din Mangalia – mulți dintre ei fuseseră asimilați și doar câțiva pur evrei etnice.

În aceste condiții, problema protejării patrimoniului arhitectural , în special al Casei Alleon , construcție reprezentativă cartierului evreiesc , este o sarcină dincolo de influența actuală a comunității. Salvarea acestui patrimoniu arhitectural evreiesc, regăsit pe pământ dobrogean necesită programe interinstituționale extinse care pot identifica mijloacele tehnice și financiare.
