Hackley Stadium at Muskegon High School on Monday, Sept. 21, 2020. The historic stadium’s renovations include a synthetic turf, SharkBite slip resistant surface in the stands and a brick wall surrounding the field.

Several years later, the memory is still vivid for Muskegon High School’s 11th-year head coach.

“That was exciting because I felt like I was in the Big House (at University of Michigan). I mean, being a 9-year-old kid going through that tunnel and seeing the field and there’s no track around it and that kind of stuff, I was blown away then,” Fairfield recalled earlier this week, as he prepared his Big Reds (1-0, 1-0 OK Green Conference) for their big crosstown matchup against Mona Shores (1-0, 1-0).

New Bryant-Denny Stadium capacity revealed after renovation

A little more than a week before a delayed reopening, Bryant-Denny Stadium’s renovations are wrapping up.

Texas A&M will visit next Saturday in the first game in a reduced-capacity stadium that received an $107 million update.

The stadium will seat just under 20,000 fans as part of the social distancing requirements, Alabama athletics director Greg Byrne said in a Thursday interview with AL.com.

Byrne also revealed the new capacity of the 91-year old stadium when it can be filled to the brim again one day.

Bryant-Denny Stadium will now seat 100,077 after the offseason renovations to club and luxury seating.

It had a capacity of 101,821 since the 2010 addition of the south end zone upper deck and luxury seating.

The new capacity will not impact Alabama’s standing on the list of largest college football stadiums. It remains No. 7, just behind LSU’s Tiger Stadium that seats 102,321. Michigan Stadium

Carrier Dome renovation: What’s left undone? What might come next?

Syracuse, N.Y. — Syracuse is investing $118 million in renovating the Carrier Dome, installing a new roof, improving amenities and providing what the school is touting as a “new stadium experience.”

In previous conversations before the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack had noted there is an appetite to do make more improvements and Syracuse has referenced a future Phase 2 of the renovation, although it hasn’t set a timetable or promised any specific upgrades.

There are certainly additional luxuries that fans would suggest.. Some of these things were initially included in renderings, while others have been discussed as options.

Heading into the weekend that Syracuse celebrates completing some substantial components of the project, here’s a look at what could be next. (Also, a look at a video of the new scoreboard, courtesy of SU).

Renovation of two tanks leads to jump in yield

The rejuvenation of waterbodies, taken up by the district administration exactly a year ago by involving government departments, non-governmental organisations and the public, has yielded good results as agriculture production has gone up substantially in all these areas.

This significant achievement has increased the area of cultivation under these waterbodies, thanks to the additional water stored in the renovated irrigation tanks. The most important feature is that these exercises did not cause any expense to the government as the public shared the entire cost.

The district administration, in association with Anna University, Chennai, designed a methodology in 2018 to restore the hitherto uncared for waterbodies with the active involvement of the locals for coordinated execution. The prime objective was to renovate the waterbodies with locals’ participation to ensure increased agriculture productivity.

The methodology was formulated by demarcating the river region and the responsibility was allocated to all the stakeholders.

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) will open its Raphael Court on 14 November—just in time for the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death—following a nine-month refurbishment. The court houses the celebrated Raphael Cartoons, large-scale paper designs painted by Raphael in 1515-16 for the Acts of the Apostles tapestry series woven for Pope Leo X’s Sistine chapel.

Seven of the cartoons were acquired by Charles I in 1623 and shipped to England; they remained in the Royal Collection and were lent to the South Kensington Museum—now the V&A—by Queen Victoria in 1865 in memory of Prince Albert. “The cartoons were exempted from sale by the Commonwealth, possibly because of their distinguished provenance, but it was only at the end of the 17th century that they began to be considered as works
