Design Revealed for Everton FC Stadium

The design of a new stadium in North Liverpool has just been unveiled by Everton Football Club. The Premier League club have proposed to build a 52,000 capacity venue at a site on Bramley-Moore Dock, which will take inspiration from both the city’s maritime history and from the club’s rich heritage and traditions. The design concept has been created by world-renowned architect Dan Meis, involving brick, steel and glass elements. The structure combines the historic and the modern, with the brick base of the stadium incorporating a subtle nod to Goodison Park’s famous Archibald Leitch lattice work while the dynamic roof structure made from steel and glass gives the stadium a modern finish. The stadium will be made up of four distinctive stands including a large steep home stand to the south. The North and South stand lower tiers will also be designed to adopt rail seating, with the club also hoping to offer safe standing should legislation change. Everton’s plans for the new stadium have been described as a “game-changer” for the region, with early indications predicting a £1 billion boost to the city’s economy with the potential for up to 15,000 new jobs generating £34 million of income to local families. The club have urged locals to take part in the ongoing public consultation process to help shape the designs. As well as the development of the new stadium, the club are also looking to redevelop its current ground, Goodison Park, to range of community assets such as homes, health, education and enterprise amenities.  “There is still much work to be done to deliver both the stadium and the community-led legacy in Liverpool 4 but we remain on track to deliver these amazing transformational projects,” said Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale, Everton’s Chief Executive Officer. “I’d like to thank everyone who has supported us so far and especially would like to thank our fans, the residents and businesses around Goodison Park and the people of this city for listening to us, for sharing their ideas with us and for backing us on this journey. It is important that people continue to give us their views during this public consultation, so I would urge everyone to visit the exhibition as it tours the city region or go to the project website to take part.” Two planning applications are expected to be submitted for the new stadium and Goodison Park plans before the end of 2019.

UTV Riding Gear Guide

Whether you’re shopping for motorcycle aftermarket mods, an OEM oil filter, or simply a rad new pair of gloves, the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. When it comes to accessories for your side-by-side, it’s sometimes hard to separate the rider must-haves from the wanna-be window dressing. Here’s a guide to the essential ATV and UTV gear you need to keep riding safely and in style. A Helmet Your helmet is arguably the most crucial part of your kit. That said, it’s important to recognize that not all helmets are equal when it comes to protecting your head and neck from harm. First things first, be sure to pick a model that meets ECE and DOT safety standards, such as the SC1 Grit Helmet from MSR. Its sculpted, dual-density EPS liner is designed to handle impacts both big and small with ease while providing maximum comfort. Oversized intake ports and exhaust ports work together to keep you cool. This sleek, stylish helmet’s shell is constructed out of injection-molded ABS and comes in a variety of colors, too. A Jacket Getting dirty is often part of the deal when you head out on your UTV, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect yourself and what lies beneath. A sturdy, waterproof jacket is essential for comfortable riding. When it comes to the best UTV riding gear, the Thor Pack Jacket is a popular, mid-priced pick. Elastic cuffs keep mud and debris from creeping up your sleeves, and a drawstring waist means you can secure the perfect fit, no matter what you have layered underneath. The Pack Jacket’s multiple pockets provide ample storage for your essentials, while the jacket itself is easily stored in the included pouch for those days when there’s not a cloud in sight for miles. Riding Gloves Hopefully, it goes without saying that you need your hands to control your UTV. More specifically, though, you need to keep them cool and dry. A lightweight pair of gloves such as A.R.C.’s Battle Born Air Gloves offer a variety of features designed to keep your digits safe and supported, no matter how hot or how cold it gets. Stretchy nylon wrist panels, knuckle pads, and high-quality goat-skin leather combine to offer premium comfort. The polyester lining wicks away moisture from even the sweatiest palms, while Touch-Tech leather on the index fingerspermits easy operation of all your devices so you never have to choose between safety and sharing your adventures on social media. Boots The final components of your kit are your boots. You need a sturdy pair to protect your lower legs and feet when you’re off-roading. Fox Bomber Boots are an excellent mid-ankle option that won’t break the bank — or your ankles. They feature Fox’s famous bonded Duratac sole, an integrated steel shank, and an injection-molded plastic toe cap for maximum strength and support. Velcro closures, a flexible, ball-and-socket buckle, and a padded but bulge-resistant ankle design mean you don’t have to sacrifice comfort to stay safe. The best aftermarket and OEM ATV parts combine form and function. Choose safety over style and performance over polish when shopping for UTV accessories to ensure the longevity of your gear, your side-by-side, and your riding career.

Boulder Residents And Business – Find Professional House Painters For Their Next Painting Project

There comes a point in our lives when we want to make a significant change in our home. With time the house is bound to endure damage due to poor weather conditions. Time is also responsible for the damage. For example, your roof will develop holes, and water will leak through them. The fence is going to get broken and will need repairs. The windows are going to break, and you’ll need to replace them. All of these things can happen with time, and you shouldn’t stress over them too much. For every problem, there’s a solution. Another issue that can arise is that the paint from the exterior of the house can start to chip and fade. This will leave the house looking rather shabby and old. If you care about the appearance of your home, then you should repaint it. Of course, you can’t do this on your own because you either don’t know how or you just don’t have the time. This kind of project takes several days to finish. That’s why a good idea is to hire professional painters to do the painting for you. Check out the link to find out more details about the topic https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/22/realestate/living-in-color.html. Moreover, they will finish everything on time with their meticulous work. So start searching for a licensed business that offers this kind of service and wait for the transformation of your home. Here are several reasons why every homeowner should consider repainting the house: A Fresh Look You are probably tired of the same old painting that has been on the walls forever. It’s time to say goodbye to it and welcome a more warm color instead. The new paint job will leave the home looking like it is brand new. The neighbors will admire it from afar and ask for recommendations from you about the painters that made that happen. The fresh paint will bring happiness to all of your family. You won’t have to look at old paint on the walls ever again. Then the new color will start to fade but not for a long time.  Just be patient with the process, and you’ll see in the end that all that waiting will be paid off. The painters are very good at what they do and will aim to please your every desire. You can choose a different and more stylish color for the home and inform them of your decision. They will gladly do what you ask of them because you are the customer after all. Health Reasons Have you heard of mold? It’s very dangerous to have it growing in or outside of the home. One of the main reasons why mold grows is because of moisture. If you haven’t painted the house for a long time, then the chipped paint will have tiny holes in it so that water can come through. This will quickly leave the wooden surface rotten and start the growth of mold. Once it spreads, it affects the air quality inside and outside of the house. It is dangerous to inhale it because it can cause health problems for you and your family. That’s why repainting the walls is the best way to protect yourself from mold and mildew. Fresh paint will protect the walls from moisture, and no mold would be able to grow there. You want what’s best for your family. Keeping the home clean and secure should be your number one priority. Don’t ignore the problem because it only gets bigger with time. If it is time to repaint the home, do it without second-guessing the decision. Property Value Perhaps you and your family have decided to sell your old home and relocate somewhere new. If the house is adequately taken care of and is stable, then the value of it will be immense. But if the walls are chipped and faded, prone to all kinds of insects and natural elements, then don’t expect the value to be high. The best chance of getting the house sold to someone else is if you paint the exterior and interior as well. This will instantly brighten up the place and make it more appealing to potential buyers. Your realtor would suggest the same thing. Making this kind of decision takes time and patience. But it is the best option there is. Don’t worry about spending way too much money on the painters. Once you look at the increased value of your home, you would consider the repainting as an investment. You’ll be able to get a lot of money to buy yourself a new place where you can make memories. Before you make a decision, make sure to contact Foothills Boulder Painters and few others to make the right choice for the house. Surface Protection No one likes to stare at walls with stains. What’s worse, the stains can be permanent, and there’s no way to clean them whatsoever. How long can they stay like that until they drive you crazy? That’s why every homeowner should look for a solution to get rid of them once and for all. Over the years, accidents happen. You kid can spill a drink and splash the walls. Or touch the wall with greasy hands. These types of stains are not so easy to get rid of completely. But, fortunately for you, new paint to revive the walls will do the trick. It will make the house look brighter and cleaner. A new color for the exterior as well as interior will make the house look like it is brand new. Not to mention that it will cover all those nasty stains that you’ve tried so hard to eliminate. All you have to do is find a reliable and licensed business that offers professional painters to take care of that for you. Once they finish the job, your house would look unrecognizable, but in a good way.
