The 53 year old former Irish steeplechase jockey, now one of New York's most successful trainers, is considering running the 5 year old horse, Fourstars Allstar, in two Festival stakes races.O'Brien nominated the horse for both races last week when preliminary entries were taken. At entry time today, when final lineups are announced, O'Brien said Fourstars Allstar will remain entered in both the $600,000 International Mile, run Saturday, as well as in Sunday's $200,000 Laurel Dash.Such strategy is almost considered outlandish for the modern day frail thoroughbred.But, "it is a possibility," O'Brien said. "When I was 15, riding in Ireland, I finished second in my first race, a three mile steeplechase, to a horse named One Eyed Gunner. He won by six lengths. After the race, I was watching his people cool out the horse. Then they began to get him ready, like he was going to race again. I asked them 'What are you doing?' They said 'He's going back in the fourth [race].' And he won another three mile chase by 10 [lengths]."These horses are tougher than you think," O'Brien added. "They are born to run, and the good ones, that's what they like to do."Fourstars Allstar is a good one. As a 2 year old he won the Pilgrim Stakes at Belmont Park and finished second in the Laurel Futurity.The next spring, O'Brien conceived another unorthodox plan. He shipped the 3 year old colt to his native land and won the Group I Irish Two Thousand Guineas, the first American trained horse to win an Irish classic.Since then the New York bred horse has increased his earnings to over $1 million, but has been lightly raced this year, making only five starts."I treated him badly last year, ran him too often, and it was my fault," O'Brien said. "This year I've been easy on him."O'Brien said the horse runs best with six to seven weeks between races. In his last start, he beat both Furiously and Cleone, the likely International Mile favorites, in the Saratoga Budweiser Breeders' Cup on Aug. 28 and has been pointed since then to Saturday's Laurel race."If I run him in both races, then that's it for him for the year," O'Brien said. The trainer is not keen on going to the Breeders' Cup Nov. 6 at Santa Anita Park. "I'm not in love with racing in California," he said. "It's going to be tough to beat Lure [in the Breeders' Cup Mile]. He loves the hard ground. The rest of us will be running for second money."However, if the Laurel grass strip is too soft tomorrow when O'Brien arrives, he will shelve the duo stakes plan. Then O'Brien could scratch Fourstars Allstar from the International Mile and run him only in the Laurel Dash. "That race would serve as a prep for the Breeders' Cup Mile," O'Brien said. "So I do have other options."Accompanying Fourstars Allstar to Laurel will be his older brother, Fourstardave, who is entered in the International Mile."Imagine, if we won both races," O'Brien said. "It would be a first."Myza defies strikeOne French horse is on its way to Laurel for the Turf Festival despite an air cargo strike by Air France employees in Paris.The 3 year old filly, Myza, owned by Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum and trained by Andre Fabre, was sent by van to Brussels, Belgium, yesterday and then put on a plane to New York. She is expected to arrive at Laurel today.Hopkins committee meetsA committee formed to review how a $4 million state fund is used to help Maryland bred horses held an organizational meeting at Laurel yesterday chaired by racing commissioner C.

Saturday. "We lost to a good team today," said Bartlett coach Denise Sarna, who guided the Hawks to second place here in 2005. "We needed to play a great game and hit on all cylinders and we didn't." Young's athleticism had as much to do with that as anything. The Dolphins, who are seeking their second state title and first since 2008, held Bartlett to 4 field goals in the first half and outrebounded the Hawks 27 15 in running out to a 30 18 lead at the break. "I thought we did a pretty good job defensively in the first half and made them work," Sarna said, "but on offense we were pretty stagnant and we missed a lot of layups and free throws." The Hawks, in fact, missed 10 shots in the paint in the first half. Young outscored Bartlett 42 16 in the paint for the game. "Their pressure in the first half took us out of our game," said Bartlett senior Haley Videckis, who finished with 10 points. "For me, the looks I was getting weren't good looks." With Kentucky bound point guard Janee Thompson leading the way, the Dolphins put the game away for good in the third quarter. Thompson penetrated at will as Young outscored Bartlett 23 12 in the third, including 18 2 in the paint. Thompson finished the game with 18 points and a state tournament record 13 assists. "That's what we expect her to do," said Young coach Corry Irvin, the Larkin graduate who can win her 300th career game in her 11th season at Young if the Dolphins win the state title. "She's a senior and she's our captain and she did a really good job today." While Young's speed appeared to make Bartlett, a quick team, a bit slow, Irvin said it was the Dolphins' defense that dictated the tempo of the game. "A lot of people think we like to run but we like to play defense and we only run when we play defense," she said. Sarna also knew one of the big keys to the game would be rebounding and Young dominated the glass, outrebounding the Hawks 50 28. Young had 21 offensive boards to Bartlett's 6. "It was a tough battle on the boards," said Bartlett senior Lisa Palmer, who had 6 points and 7 rebounds. "We worked hard but they were big and strong." Junior Linnae Harper added 16 points and 6 steals for Young, which shot 31 of 70 for the game. Virginia Tech recruit Alexis Lloyd added 14 points and 7 rebounds as well as holding Indiana signee Videckis to just 3 of 11 shooting as Bartlett finished 14 for 45 from the floor. "Our rebounding was inconsistent and our rotation was affected because of their size," Sarna said. "We had a tough time matching up with (Thompson). She has a lot of weapons and she helps make their team go. "They're as good as we thought. We could have played better but they took us out of our running game and early on we weren't setting good screens. It's a lesson to teach us the importance of execution." Senior Kristin Conniff added 10 points and senior Katie Gutzwiller had 8 points and 6 rebounds for the Hawks, who now have to regroup to play the third place game. "Our whole team has worked hard all season to get here," said Videckis, who today will join seven other Bartlett seniors in their last game as Hawks. "Everyone loses. It will be a new day and we're too good of a team to not come out (today) and display the talents we have."

A stunning question, since I thought I was holding Myles Dungan's 'Conspiracy: Irish Political Trials' (published way back in 2009, the very year Erika James, unleasher of 'Mummy Porn' on our unsuspecting civilisation, started writing). On the steps of the Scout Den, I did a quick double check: clearly Dungan and James share, if not the same public proclivities, certainly near identical taste in cover design. Dungan's book, detailing court dramas involving Emmet, O'Connell, Parnell and Casement, reminds us of our turbulent relationship with the people known on some monuments as 'The Stranger'. (I will turn to S literature another time, if you don't mind, but 'The Stranger' does seem a promising title for a debut in that genre). If a relationship between two countries is more intriguing than that between Ireland and England, the world has yet to hear of it. The complexities of our shared history would take a lifetime to trace and the feelings accrued run understandably deep. Of course the fact that we spent the best part of a millennium under the ever tightening control of a country far more powerful and populous than ours has everything to do with that intensity. We have been observing and resisting and inter marrying our English neighbours for centuries and know them better than anyone, better by far than the French or Germans know them or even the Scottish, who may lack the necessary distance (though that might soon change) to better scrutinise their Southern frenemies. However, as every Irish emigrant knows, our ongoing fascination with English culture and history is not always reciprocated. The globalised gamut of 21st century London or Birmingham knows little of the storied island to their west, latterly notable as the birthplace of Jedward and the Mullingar vector of One Direction. But, rotate the tables, and you'll find few people here who do not possess encyclopaedic knowledge of one or several aspects of English life. For some that means buying jerseys from MegaCorp United or Plutokrat FC; for others their Anglophilia involves an in depth appreciation of a colourful music scene that has repurposed everything from washboards (skiffle) to safety pins (punk) in a cultural arms race with America. Rare is the living room in Ireland that is not co dominated by English and Hollywood entertainment. One among many upshots is that we are uniquely placed to read the English temperament, which is why so many Irish comedians and entertainers do well across the water. We know what makes them laugh. Just as we both know how to hurt each other which is why the peace between us is so vital to maintain. But there's no need to end on such a resoundingly historical note, prompted as it may have been by 'Conspiracy: Irish Political Trials'. I just want to say, that is not 'Fifty Shades of Grey' I have been touting around town. 616750 600 Nike Air Foamposite Pro Area 72 Company PropertyMine Detailed Company and Property Reports, Document Search, Drill Results, Capital Raisings, Property ExchangeCountryMine Mining Countries: Argentina, Chile, South Africa, China and moreMy introduction to rock slope stability was Bomvu Ridge in Swaziland as I sat on a view point with Professor Jennings who was smoking his pipe and contemplating a solution to the instability of the mine's sideslopes. I was there to help understand the flow of water in the rock joints and hence predict the water pressure distribution. My most recent encounter with rock slope stability was in New Mexico last year. If you approach Chaco Canyon from the south along the route used for over a thousand years, you see the cliffs stretch from one horizon to the other. Only directly in front of you there is a break, a gash dominated by a towering mesa. Gingerly, for the site inspires awe, you round the mesa and quietly enter the still valley. Proceed a short way up to the main building; perhaps this was the palace, or the temple, or merely the granary of the vast empire that was ruled from this site for over 400 years. Regardless of its longevity and grandeur, in the early 1900s the rock slope behind the structure failed and obliterated about a third of the building. Today the rubble of the failure makes a good viewing point. Rather than trot out the usual fundamentals of rock slope stability which is well documented in books, I encourage you to go to the fascinating site where you will find a beautifully presented story of regional scale rock slope stability currently being investigated by the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute. I am sure there is more to the site than I know, but go there and you can download free Chapter 9 of Practical Rock Engineering by Hoek. I did and it's a gem and as good an example as any. In order to know more on slope stability, I would suggest to go through the papers listed in the Publication section of this review. STABILITY ASSESSMENT OF A CRITICAL SLOPE It is very important to conduct a stability assessment of a critical slope and takes necessary measures to avoid any accidental slope failures. Stability assessment through a probabilistic and risk analysis approach brings in light all the factors which can cause these failures. Risks are identified, remedial measures are suggested and a cost study is done covering both long term and short term stability of the rock slope. I, Priyadarshi Hem and my team members Pablo Urrutia, Rebeca Barja and Shujing Zhang carried out a probabilistic stability analysis using GoldSim on the case study "A slope stability problem in Hong Kong" (Hoek, 2007), to assess the short term and long term stability of the Sau Mau Ping slope. Four remedial measures (reduction of slope height, reduction of slope angle, reinforcement and drainage) were considered for improving the long term stability of the slope; short term stability was not considered an issue under the modeled conditions. Costs were estimated for each of the remedial measures. Reducing the slope angle was selected as the preferred alternative due to a technical and economic point of view. The report on this project can be found here: Stability Assessment of a Critical Rock Slope. Bell Dynamic and Static Stability Assessment of Rock Slopes Against Wedge Failures, by H. Kumsar, Aydan and R. Ulusay Rock slope stability and excavatability assessment of rocks at the Kapikaya dam site, Turkey, by Zulfu Gurocak, Selcuk Alemdag, Musharraf M. Zaman Rock slope stability assessment through rock mass classification systems, by Lysandros Pantelidis October 29, 2011: The Kentucky surface coal mine, Centertown: Two workers were killed when a pile of rock crushed their truck as they drove near a highwall. April 17, 2007: Tri Star Mining, Inc., Barton, Allegany County, Maryland: 2 miners got buried under 93,000 tons of rock resulting from a massive highwall collapse. Less effective company's ground control plan and inadequate examinations of highwall slope could not identify the weak highwall. Severe subsidence in the underground coal seam nearby caused the highwall to be extremely fractured.
