After the thrilling Union victory at Five Forks on April 1, Lt. Col. Phil Sheridan’s success had not yet reached the Boydton Plank Road. As the staff officer and his party turned on to the road, his orderly shouted out the news of the victory to a group of soldiers along the road. Porter finally reached Grant, who walked into his tent while his entourage roundly congratulated themselves about the battle. The general reemerged shortly with sobering news: “I have ordered a general assault along the lines. Grant feared that General Robert E. Lee would once more strip troops from the defenses around Richmond and Petersburg and along the Boydton Plank Road to restabilize the strategic picture around Five Forks. To prevent these likelihoods, Grant ordered his first offensive directly against the Confederate earthworks since the doomed fighting around the Crater in late July 1864. Each of his other offensives had drawn operations further and further to the... Now Grant ordered Maj. In the meantime, with the military action shifted to the west since the Battle of Jones Farm a week prior, some in the VI Corps spent the day on April 1 engaged in the popular.
Perfecting the Stroke Using Practice Drills The butterfly stroke is one of the most difficult swimming strokes, and is used only in swim competitions. Use the correct arm movement. The arm movement in butterfly stroke can be broken down into three parts: the pull, the push and the recovery. Starting with your arms extended above your head (shoulder width apart), pull your hands towards your body in a semicircular motion, palms facing outwards. This is the fastest part of the arm movement and provides the momentum necessary to complete the release. A good way to remember the pull and push sequence is to imagine making the shape of a large keyhole with your hands underwater. The pull is the wide part of the keyhole at the top, while the push is the narrow part of the keyhole at the bottom. The last part of the butterfly arm movement is the recovery which is where your hands must be positioned as they are in motion while finishing your pull and are getting ready to begin the subsequent stroke. A good way to ensure that you have done this part of the stroke successfully is to drag your thumbs on your thighs as you are finishing the stroke.
Syona aka the Silicon Shaman
Ilyana stirred in her sleep, drifting up towards wakefulness. Ilyana smiled slightly as she remembered: movie night had proven to be a success. Once Blaze had finished making popcorn, and Ilyana had phoned out for pizza from the number she’d discovered on speed-dial— because apparently in New York it wasn’t unusual for delivery instructions to include leaving the box on a bare slab of... Ilyana had indeed sung along, accompanied by Blaze, who’d threatened to take her out to a Karaoke bar she knew another night. Ilyana had said emphatically and repeatedly that only if there were large quantities of vodka involved would she sing in public. Watching movies had become generally talking about life, as the night had worn on, and eventually Blaze had drifted off to sleep, followed not long after by Ilyana. Ilyana considered the problem of getting up and getting a shower without waking her Siniy, or exposing her to a fatal dose of radiation. Idly, Ilyana brushed a lock of Blaze’s blue/green hair off her cheek.
