RUGBY UNION: Oxford University revamp historic Major Stanley's Match | Oxford Mail
Meet the Team ( / ). Men's Squad | Women's Squad | Management. Felix Stocker. Hooker. Andrew Abraham. Scrum Half. Ollie Adams. Lock. Charlie . Meet our teams, view fixtures and results Unversity RFC v Croatia, Saturday 5th April, KO – , Venue: Iffley Road – OURFC Stadium. In the first of our 'Meet the Captains' video series, Oxford University Men's Blues captain Fergus Taylor discusses this year's OURFC squad, his.
On top of this, he is a talented Sevens player, and has represented England both at an U20 level and in a senior capacity. Will combines his physical presence in the pack with a silky boot, being the reserve kicker for the Varsity Match. Not all forwards can boast such dexterity! Will has demonstrated time and time again that he belongs with the best rugby players in Oxford.
However, it has not been easy. Will has overcome a very serious injury, dedicating time in the gym to ensure that he can put on that jersey in front of the Twickenham crowd he adores so much. Indeed, this financial support is hugely beneficial in keeping Will performing to the best of his ability. Being at the centre of the action has never been a problem for Conor. A utility back, he is capable of playing any of Centre, Fly-Half or Fullback. Not that this bothers him.

Conor is a remarkably approachable guy whose thirst for rugby knowledge and marginal gains mean that he really sets the standard for the team around him. When asked what his greatest achievement is, he replies without hesitation. The winter months have been brutal for the squad, but the team is in its final stages of preparation, ready for the big day on Thursday.
The final stop — New York City. Although we stayed in a somewhat unfamiliar burrow of The Bronx, we all gained a great appreciation for the New York Subway system! However, without doubt, the most satisfying aspect of the whole tour was the victory against Old Blue.
Stacked with American internationals, they were expecting a certain outcome, which turned out not to be the case. In another hard fought game, we came home with the win — Some incredible performances on the night and a real will to win, saw us through.
It was evident that the squad had been unified through the trials and tribulations of the previous two weeks.

The differences that we left with faded in the light of what we had gained and what we had become a part of. It has been a truly unforgettable experience that I believe will be a determining factor in the success of season ahead and the Varsity Match.
A multiplicity of systems will be generating data on the health and status of our Smart Cities and their citizens, but the generation of information is only part of the smart city story. For any information to be useful, it must be processed, and presented in a relevant and timely manner, to citizens in such a way as to add value and improve their own lives. Inevitably much of this data will be available through mobile devices and these will doubtless be a mainstay of communicating within the digital city.
However, increasingly large media facades will provide a powerful new way of communicating relevant and pertinent information. Manufactured from an architectural grade glass that is both durable and resilient but also fully transparent with the full rich media capabilities, these facades have the potential to change the cityscape as we know it. They will provide opportunities for entertainment, new interactive leisure and play opportunities and will be a key influence on how both new and existing urban spaces are used, enjoyed and developed in the city of the future.
Whilst advertising is doubtless going to be a big feature of these media facades it will not be the only or most important feature, and any advertising that is done will be far more experiential and creative than just displaying a logo and product image, which is what we see today. However, there are other things we can do with this technology; we are able to react to sound, movement, weather and amend the displayed content accordingly eg transport information, weather warnings, emergency services advice.
With ubiquitous mobile app penetration, we could even react to the presence of certain people allowing us to personalise messaging. Architectural gaming, with the game taking place on the side of a building could allow tribe formation around installations leading in turn to commercial regeneration in an area. The building may change colour throughout the day, or by playing with the perspectives, they would be able to create stunning visual illusions and merge the structure seamlessly into its environment.

The technology behind the creativity G-Glass is a laminated glass product. It is composed of a 4mm base glass coated in fluorine tin oxide FTO which is both conductive and transparent. The cover glass is typically a heat soaked, tempered 6mm glass allowing the finished unit to be rated as a safety glass. A resin is then poured between the plates and hardened using UV light. The finished assembly is connected to drivers hidden in an aluminium frame by flexible printed circuit boards FPCBs which are connected to DVI controllers and an external power source.
The controllers determine the orientation of the panels and how video files will be played across the glass. These facades could transform a building into a grand canvas and only our imaginations will limit the beauty and usefulness that we can bring to our urban environments.
