Arthur C Clarke – Rendezvous with Rama The Folio Society edition review

first_imgCredit: The Folio SocietyRendezvous with Rama first appeared in print in 1973. It was author Arthur C. Clarke’s next project after 2001: A Space Odyssey, which Stanley Kubrick’s big screen adaptation brought to a much wider audience.Readers can find some of the themes that interested Clarke in 2001: A Space Odyssey examined further here. In Rendezvous with Rama, what appears to be an asteroid enters the solar system. Following a meteor’s catastrophic collision with earth some years earlier (spookily, Clarke’s chosen date is September 11th), earth’s defences are primed to react immediately to any perceived threat. A space craft is dispatched to investigate the object and report back to earth. It quickly becomes clear that ‘Rama’ is of alien origin, created by a highly technologically advanced civilisation. But why has it entered earth’s solar system? Who is on board? And does it mean any harm?I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time when I was twelve. I had expected the excitement of Star Wars but was left bored rigid. I gave the film another chance when I was sixteen, and the second time around it blew my mind, and became a firm favourite. The difference was expectation, as well as an increasing intellectual maturity and appreciation of scientific ideas. The same mindset is needed to appreciate Rendezvous with Rama. Clarke is forensic and thought-provoking in extrapolating into prose his themes of humankind’s cosmic insignificance, the limits of our knowledge and what it means to make first contact with a more advanced alien civilisation. But the characters are subservient to examining these concepts. If you prefer troubled, rounded characters who are psychologically intriguing, then Arthur C Clarke is not the right author for you.On the other hand, if you’re looking for grand, powerful science-fiction tropes, Rendezvous with Rama is a rich and impressive work. Clarke’s elegant descriptive prose is just about light-touch enough to never weary with excessive detail, yet nuanced enough to plant firm images in the reader’s head. This is especially impressive when the humans reach and explore Rama, finding an opening and descending along a ladder to the uncharted territory of the giant vessel’s innards.Illustration © Matt Griffin from The Folio Society edition of Rendezvous with RamaThe book is not sterile of spirituality, and such shading helps to give it a more rounded view of the human condition. ‘Rama’ itself is named after the Hindu god that is considered the supreme being, and the humans have a reverence for the impressive unknown quantity they simultaneously admire and fear. The spacecraft sent to examine Rama is called ‘Endeavour’ – named after Captain Cook’s exploratory sailing ship that reached Australasia and made for the first European contact with a previously-unknown area of the world. Cook would, of course, later pay a heavy price for his encounters with other civilisations. The task of Commander Norton in Rendezvous with Rama is to keep every member of his crew alive throughout their reconnaissance mission.There are a few touches of inspired genius that help Rendezvous with Rama stand out as a terrific science-fiction read.The human crew of the Endeavour are accompanied by ‘simps’ – genetically modified chimpanzees. Clarke creates the Rama Committee and the United Planets – a human political organisation tasked with overseeing the mission. Naturally, it is crammed full of egos, and everyone walks on eggshells around the Hermian colonists – humans who live on the inhospitable planet of Mercury. The Endeavour crew coin the term ‘biots’ to describe the biological robots operating within Rama which make up the first tantalising encounter with alien life. All of these ideas are leaps of the imagination that are rooted in an understanding of humanity’s psychological need to search for new knowledge, which was understood and depicted as far back as the book of Genesis and the tree of knowledge.Illustration © Matt Griffin from The Folio Society edition of Rendezvous with RamaAmongst the far-reaching ideas, Clarke maintains an atmosphere of discovery but also menace, and keeps his reader thirsty for more revelations from the alien world he has created. It takes an author of considerable confidence to conclude the book in the way we leave Rendezvous with Rama, but it’s entirely consistent with Clarke’s literary style and his approach to storytelling. Even the final sentence is yet another way to toy with the reader that there may be more to come…This edition of Rendezvous with Rama is published in hardback and with slipcase by The Folio Society. It is an eye-catching addition to the bookcases of any Arthur C Clarke devotee. The striking cover image of Rama hanging hauntingly near the orbit of Jupiter, and the vivid full-colour illustrations within the pages, make for a luxurious copy of a celebrated science-fiction classic.The Folio Society edition of Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke, introduced by John Clute and illustrated by Matt Griffin, is available exclusively from The Folio Society – www.FolioSociety.com.Publisher: The Folio Society Publication date: May 2020last_img read more

UWF Finishes Third at Argonaut Invitational

first_imgGULF BREEZE, Fla. – Chandler Blanchet led the way for the No. 2-ranked University of West Florida men’s golf team in its third-place finish at the Argonaut Invitational at Tiger Point Golf Club on Tuesday. The Argonauts posted the best team round of the day with a five-over 293 on Tuesday morning, besting tournament winners Missouri-St. Louis’ 296 in the final round. Blanchet, a sophomore from Gainesville, shot one of the lowest rounds of the tournament on Tuesday morning with a four-under 68 on the final 18 holes. Only tournament champion Hugo Bernard of Saint Leo (66 in Round 2) and Lee’s Shea Sylvester (67 in Round 1) shot lower than Blanchet’s final round score. Blanchet started the tournament strong with a 2-under 70 in the first round. He rebounded nicely in the third after posting a 75 on Monday afternoon and shot a round of 68 that featured four birdies in a five-hole stretch. UWF finished at +15 for the tournament, seven shots behind UMSL, four shots behind Saint Leo and with a six-stroke cushion over Delta State. West Florida finished in the top four in all eight regular-season events this year, with wins at the Las Vegas Desert Classic in early March, the Jay Jennison Memorial in St. Augustine, Florida, and the Patriot Intercollegiate in Lorton, Virginia. Jacob Huizinga (+4) and Talin Rajendranath (+7) posted top-20 finishes along with Blanchet. Huizinga recorded back-to-back rounds of even par after starting the tournament with a four-over 76 on Monday morning. In his first round, Huizinga made three consecutive bogeys on Nos. 3, 4 and 5. After the fifth hole, Huizinga played 1-under the rest of the tournament. Rajendranath stayed consistent in all three rounds, with scores of 73, 74 and 76, and he finished the tournament in a tie for 20th place. Bryce Geraghty was just two shots behind Rajendranath at 225 (+9) for the tournament, and Henry Westmoreland IV finished at 231 (+15) in a tie for 46th to wrap up the team scoring. Five Argos competed as individuals in the tournament as well, as JR Schultz and Christian Bosso finished in a tie for 28th at +10 as the top individuals. Esteban Castro carded a first-round 74 and a second-round 71 to finish at +14 in a tie for 43rd. Pace High School graduate Spencer Olson finished in a tie with Westmoreland at +15, and Julian Otero finished at +29 after shooting his best round of the tournament on Tuesday morning with a 79. UWF will play in the Gulf South Conference Tournament on April 18-19 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at The Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The men’s team will play the Fighting Joe course, and the women will play the Schoolmaster Course. For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.  Top Teams1.

SOT Playoff Game of the Week: Wadsworth uses fourth quarter to beat Sylvania Northview, 61-42

first_imgW- Snowball 14 run (Larj kick) SN – Brandon Leach 13 pass to Camden Corron (kick blocked) W- Brock Snowball 1 run (kick blocked) W- Brock Snowball 1 run (Larj kick) Third Quarter Fourth Quarter SN – Hullibarger 1 run (Pawlak kick) #2 Wadsworth1415141861 W- Baughman 12 pass to Blackburn (kick failed) First Quarter By Ed DickWADSWORTH, OH – The lights peeked over the houses on the right-hand side of the street approaching the parking lot.  Art Wright Stadium was alive, ready for a Division 2, Region VI quarterfinal contest between the visiting, seventh-seeded Sylvania Northview Wildcats (8-2 overall, 5-2 Northern Lakes Conference) and the undefeated champions of the Suburban League National Division, host and second-seeded Wadsworth Grizzlies.The second season of high school football kicked off at 7:30 p.m. with Wadsworth’s Ryan Larj teeing the ball up at the 40-yard line. Sylvania Northview returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2005 and wasted no time making their presence felt.The Wildcats took the opening kickoff and proceeded to march 70 yards in four plays for a quick 7-0 lead on a 50-yard TD run by running back Dane Hullibarger. Wadsworth went backwards on their first drive, punting from their own five-yard line.Senior quarterback Brandon Leach took over at the Wadsworth 35, hitting WR Ryan Rempe for an 18-yard completion to the Wadsworth 16.  Four plays later, Hullibarger plunged into the end zone from two yards out and a 14-0 lead with 4:26 left in the first quarter.Aided by a penalty and an errant kickoff, the Grizzlies got the ball on the Wildcat 49.  Five plays later, quarterback Joey Baughman found wide receiver Mitchell Blackburn for a beautiful TD pass from 27 yards out, cutting the lead to 14-7.The Grizzlies were able to hold the Wildcat offense, led by a nine-yard sack of Leach by DL Joey Fernholz. Baughman started the next drive at his own 34-yard line and went 66 yards in less than a minute, hitting Blackburn on a perfectly blocked screen pass for a 39-yard score.  The first quarter ended in a 14-14 tie.Sylvania Northview continued to play from ahead, as Hullibarger rushed for his third TD from one yard out. His TD was set up by a diving catch at the one by Rempe from Leach.The Grizzlies answered back, utilizing a quick passing game en route to a one-yard touchdown run by running back Brock Snowball.  Hullibarger countered with a three-yard TD run, his fourth of the game.  A botched PAT snap led to kicker Luke Pawlak reversing fields to evade tacklers and finding Alex Sample for an improvised two-point conversion and a 29-21 lead.Undaunted, the Grizzlies began to unleash their rushing attack behind Baughman and Snowball.  Baughman hit Blackburn for his third TD of the game from six yards out, then went right back to him for the two-point conversion and a 29-29 tie with 48 seconds left in the half.  The Wildcats had a first down at Wadsworth’s 41-yard line and two timeouts left.  Coach Doug Downing elected to go into the half tied with the undefeated Grizzlies instead of attempting to get into range for Pawlak.The Wildcats were able to answer the bell in the third quarter after a couple of more Wadsworth haymakers, specifically Baughman’s 63-yard touchdown run to start the second half.Leach calmly led Northview, completing four passes for 89 yards that culminated in a 13-yard TD pass to WR Camden Corron. However, Pawlak’s extra point attempt was blocked and the Wildcats trailed, 36-35.The Grizzlies kept the ball on the ground for seven of ten plays on their next scoring drive, as Snowball found the end zone from 11 yards out and a 43-35 lead.The Wildcats clawed back behind Leach’s 10 yard TD pass to Rempe over a Wadsworth defender. The drive was aided by an unnecessary roughness penalty via helmet-to-helmet contact between Snowball and wide receiver Jarrett Batanian. Pawlak’s extra point was true, and the Wildcats cut the lead to 43-42. That score remained going into the decisive fourth quarter.The Grizzlies started to find their groove with the rushing game in the fourth quarter.  Save for a 12 yard TD pass from Baughman to Blackburn to start the fourth quarter, their fourth TD connection of the night, the Grizzlies were able to wear down the Wildcats with the run game on the offense and a relentless defense.The Wildcats, sensing they could not keep the Grizzlies out of the end zone, bypassed punting on their next three possessions.  Unfortunately, the Wildcats were right as Snowball rushed for a one-yard TD after the first turnover on downs, and Baughman completed an 11-yard TD pass to Blackburn after their second, and the game was blown open at 61-42.Blackburn’s knockdown of a Leach pass attempt to Rempe ended one of those drives, showing how versatile his skills are.  Leach’s final attempt at a comeback was thwarted by Wadsworth’s defense with just over two minutes left in the game.  Wadsworth successfully ran out the clock for a 61-42 victory over a worthy Sylvania Northview team.Sylvania was able to hang offensively for the first three quarters.  Leach, all 6-foot-7-inches of him, completed 26-of-32 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns.  Rempe caught 10 of those passes for 144 yards and a TD, and Corron caught seven passes for 78 yards and a score. Hullibarger rushed 17 times for 117 yards and four TDs.The Grizzlies had a little more in the tank led by the All-Ohio Baughman.  He completed 22-of-28 passes for 229 yards, five touchdowns and a two-point conversion. He also rushed 14 times for 191 yards and one TD.  Blackburn caught 13 passes for 130 yards and five TDs, and also had a two-point conversion.  Snowball rushed 14 times for 123 yards and three scores.Sylvania Northview ends their season at 9-2. They brought a physical offensive and defensive line and were successful for three quarters.  The Wildcats played very well and their lively fan base had plenty to cheer about. However, it’s the resilient Wadsworth team that moves on, now at 11-0.  The Grizzlies will take on No. 3 seeded Olmsted Falls next Friday night at a neutral site.

Yes and no.In the post war era the clubs decided to pool resources when it came to things like jumpers and equipment.Or rather, Collingwood would give equipment to Port.The magpie logo came into effect for Collingwood in 1976, and was commissioned by the AFL, who actually own the rights to use it.When the South Australian teams adopted logos a few years later, they did what any self respecting American High School would do and took existing logos and modified them slightly. On these boards that is taboo. In 1978 they thought they’d get away with it.Glenelg used the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, South Adelaide used a panther from somewhere I can’t recall at the moment, Woodville used Woody Woodpecker, Central Districts used Footscray’s Bulldog.Even today Central’s use a ‘borrowed’ logo.And South Adelaide probably wish they did.This is supposed to be the second strongest competition in Australia, and their club logos are spectacularly horrible.

The bad boy got involved in a cruel scandal, Grisho intervened…

first_imgThe bad boy of tennis Nick Kirios once again got involved in a scandal and again attacked the tennis players who took part in the Adria Tour and contracted a coronavirus. Among them are Grigor Dimitrov and Novak Djokovic. However, the Australian’s anger poured out on Borna Choric, who was also infected.Kirios does not stop sharing statuses on social networks and explaining how frivolous it is to play such tournaments and make parties for tennis players.Coric decided to reply: “I read what he wrote, but I don’t care, because he likes to pretend to be a general. If someone else was giving advice, maybe I would understand, but exactly Kirios … It’s not serious. That’s it. his style and I have no problem with that, “Choric said.Kirios’s response was immediate.Winbet – the largest variety of markets! (18+)“Do you have stones in your head?
