Ljubljana is surrounded by numerous dense rural formations of different scales.
Together by branching with main urban core are forming the city. As the city is expanding from the inner side outwards the urban and rural formations are slowly dissolving together. With uncontrolled urban growth historical rural typologies are slowly loosing its patterns, character and qualities.

65-year-old man clings to hood of car for 3 miles in wild Massachusetts road rage incident

first_imgMrs. Schur(BOSTON) —  A 65-year-old man says he thought he was going to be roadkill after a rush hour road rage incident left him clinging to the hood of a man’s SUV as it hit speeds of up to 70 mph on the Massachusetts Turnpike.“I thought he was going to run me over,” Richard Kamrowski said of the wild ride that was caught on cell phone video by stunned motorists just outside Boston.The bizarre incident occurred about 4:30 p.m. on Friday, when Kamrowski, 65, and Mark Fitzgerald got into a sideswipe accident while traveling in the westbound lanes of the turnpike, also known as Interstate 90, according to the Massachusetts State Police.Following the fender bender, Kamrowski stopped in the left lane and got out of his Ford F-150 pickup truck to exchange insurance information with Fitzgerald, according to police.Fitzgerald, 37, of Ashland, Massachusetts, stayed inside of his white 2016 Infinity QX70 SUV, authorities said.“That encounter became adversarial,” police said in a statement.At some point, Kamrowski of Framingham, Massachusetts, reached into Fitzgerald’s vehicle and snatched a water bottle and then stood in front of Fitzgerald’s SUV, police said.“Fitzgerald then began driving towards Kamrowski, who subsequently jumped on the hood of Fitzgerald’s vehicle,” according to the statement from police.With Kamrowski clinging to the hood, Fitzgerald headed west on the turnpike, accelerating and stopping in an apparent herky-jerky attempt to shake Kamrowski, police said. Fitzgerald’s Infinity hit speeds of up to 70 mph as it traveled about three miles on the highway with Kamrowski holding on, police said.“I just kept telling him, ‘Stop the car! Stop the car!’ And he wouldn’t stop,” Kamrowski told ABC Boston affiliate WCVB-TV.“Fast, slow, fast, slow. Trying to get me to slide off,” Kamrowski said of Fitzgerald’s driving. “I wasn’t getting off the car.”Fitzgerald, according to police, broke the windshield with the water bottle he took from Fitzgerald’s vehicle.Several motorists tried unsuccessfully to get Fitzgerald to stop, police said. When Fitzgerald eventually got bogged down in traffic, a motorist with a permit to carry a concealed weapon approached Fitzgerald and ordered him out of the SUV at gunpoint just as troopers arrived on the scene, according to the police statement.Kamrowski and Fitzgerald were both placed under arrest.Fitzgerald was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon on a person over 60, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.Kamrowski was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and malicious damage to a motor vehicle.They were both released on personal recognizance bonds and ordered to appear for arraignment in district court on Monday in Waltham, Massachusetts.Fitzgerald declined to comment to reporters after he was released by police, WCVB reported. Efforts by ABC News to reach him on Sunday were not successful.Kamrowski said he’s just happy to be alive.“When you’re hanging on for dear life, it’s, you know, pretty scary,” he told the station.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Krill caught by predators and nets: differences between species and techniques

first_imgSamples of Antarctic krill collected from 6 seabird species and Antarctic fur seal during February 1986 at South Georgia were compared to krill from scientific nets fished in the area at the same time. The length-frequency distribution of krill was broadly similar between predators and nets although the krill taken by diving species formed a homogeneous group which showed significant differences from krill taken by other predators and by nets. There were significant differences in the maturity/sex stage composition between nets and predators; in particular all predator species showed a consistent sex bias towards female krill. Similarities in the krill taken by macaroni (offshore feeding) and gentoo (inshore feeding) penguins and differences between krill taken by penguins and albatrosses suggest that foraging techniques were more important than foraging location in influencing the type of krill in predator diets. Most krill taken by predators were adult; most female krill were sexually active (particularly when allowance is made for misclassification bias arising from predator digestion). Because female krill are larger, and probably less manouverable, than males, the biased sex ratio in predator diets at this time of year may reflect some combination of selectivity by predators and superior escape responses of male krill. Overall, adult, sexually active female krill, forming 40% by number of the local krill population, may comprise 60 to 70% by number and 75 to 88% by mass of the krill taken by their main seabird and seal predators at South Georgia at the time of peak local demand in February.last_img read more


Ellis stars with four-timer

first_imgChampion jockey-designate Shane Ellis will have a merry Christmas, thanks to a fabulous four-timer on yesterday’s 12-race programme at Caymanas Park.Saving the best for last, the 42-year-old jockey, son of 1960s champion Winston ‘Nero’ Ellis, scored a runaway win aboard the 43-1 outsider ROMAN SPY for trainer Donovan Plummer in the closing race over 1400 metres to move to 83 wins – 12 clear of his closest rival Robert Halledeen, who did not ride yesterday and has seemingly thrown in the towel with only two race days remaining.Ellis also won the fifth race for Plummer aboard 4-1 chance HOLOGRAM SHADOW, the six-year-old getting up in the nick of time to beat the front-running favourite RAGING PROSPECT by a neck over a mile, followed up with 8-5 favourite PERFECT FLYER for trainer Dwight Chen in the eighth, as well as 4-5 favourite ROYAL ASSAULT who made all impressively for trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes in the War Zone Sprint (11th race) supporting feature. ROYAL ASSAULT won by four lengths from ACTION MAN in the smart time of 105.3.Ellis, who won his first championship in the year 2000, was elated with yesterday’s windfall and indicated it would be much of the same next year.”My ability is unquestionable, so I will only have to put my mind to it in 2016. Looking back at the season, I told myself in mid-year there was no way I would be beaten by Halledeen and only had to avoid injury or suspension to win my second championship. The wait was long, but it was worth it,” said the popular jockey.Meanwhile, PHINEAS (3-1), with Wesley Henry riding for trainer Andrew McDonald, outfinished 2-5 favourite CAMPESINO under outgoing champion jockey Dane Nelson by a neck to win the Gladiator Trophy open allowance feature over 1400 metres in the smart time of 1:24.1.last_img read more
