‘He said after the World Cup that it’ll be his turn to knock me out’

first_imgWednesday Oct 16, 2019 ‘He said after the World Cup that it’ll be his turn to knock me out’ Wales have identified France’s kicking game as an area to be wary of ahead of their much anticipated Rugby World Cup quarter-final this coming Sunday. Luckily for Wales, they are well placed to deal with any aerial assault, particularly in the form of British and Irish Lions fullback Liam Williams.ADVERTISEMENTHowever, Williams’s fearless focus when leaping for the ball has had some unfortunate consequences, most notably when he smashed into the head of his own five-eighth Dan Biggar during the win over Fiji.Biggar, who also banged heads with Williams while celebrating a try in the first game against Georgia, had to leave the field and was ruled out of last weekend’s match against Uruguay.“It was just that the ball was in the middle of the two of us and he is not one to back out,” said Williams.“So I went up for it and unfortunately caught him on the way down.“He said after the World Cup that it’ll be his turn to knock me out.”FRENCH THREATADVERTISEMENTKicking coach Neil Jenkins probably knows more about putting boot to ball than anyone else at the Rugby World Cup, so when he sounds a warning about the French kicking threat, the Welsh players had better be listening carefully.“Camille Lopez is an outstanding attacking kicker, an outstanding rugby player,” Jenkins, Wales’ kicking coach and the country’s highest points scorer, said on Wednesday.“His kicking is exceptional — a lot of cross-field kicks, a lot of little chips over the top.“They have got a very good balance to their kicking game and Romain Ntamack, who is an outstanding rugby player, has come in as well.ADVERTISEMENT“It’s a big area for us and an area we will have to be on red alert against, come Sunday.”The arrival of Fabien Galthie as assistant coach after another dire Six Nations for France has led to a change in approach with more, and better, tactical kicking among the changes he has introduced.Jenkins was also the latest member of the Welsh coaching team to be questioned about the relevance, or otherwise, of their run of seven wins in the last eight games against the French might have on Sunday’s game.“They have been pretty close, probably one-score games most of them,” he said.“They beat us eight years ago in Auckland (in the World Cup semi-final) which was a huge game for us on that day and they have managed to turn us over.“It is a totally different game on Sunday and I am not sure if it makes much of a difference. It is a new game and a lot at stake and we need to be ready.” Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

However, when faced with the challenge of placing two houses on the site in such as way as to maximize privacy while democratizing access to the view, our strategy was to place two linear houses along a single line. The two houses are sited along the same line and each house disappears from the visual sight line of the other.Thus, we created a sense of privacy not through enclosure but through a lack of visual proximity.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyEach house is one room wide and sixty meters long. The two extreme ends of the line (160 meters apart) house the private spaces for reflection, an architectural studio for one house and a yoga studio for the other. Then, as one moves towards the middle, the spaces become increasingly more public and social, with the center held by the guest quarters of the two houses (thus allowing one family to ‘colonize’ the guest quarters of the other house if needed). In each house, all the spaces benefit from a double orientation to the two different orchards and interior and exterior spaces flow into each other.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyProject gallerySee allShow lessA Vision Plan for the Dead Sea / Sasaki AssociatesArticlesDavid Chipperfield to Curate 2012 Venice BiennaleArticles Share CopyAbout this officeOUALALOU+CHOIOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesMoroccoPublished on November 19, 2011Cite: “Co-Habitation / OUALALOU + CHOI” 19 Nov 2011.

The facade, roof and interior are all made of larch boards; however, the outside wood cladding uses a “burn and stain” technique, for longer–lasting life. The main living space has large-format glazing to take advantage of solar gain in winter, whereas in summer, the large wooden sliding shutters provide protection against the sun radiation.Save this picture!DiagramEach part, both inside and out, together with the sunlight, dramatically changes the shape of the house and makes you feel like an explorer in a canyon. It is a very refreshing and peaceful haven for its residents and their visitors.Save this picture!© Petra HajskaOriginally published on September 08, 2015Project gallerySee allShow lessDream House / JINGU PHOENIXSelected ProjectsHEYTEA LAB, Shenzhen OCT Harbor Store / TOMO DESIGNSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Lodín, Czech Republic Architects: ASGK Design Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/773151/house-zilvar-asgk-design Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/773151/house-zilvar-asgk-design Clipboard Year:  Photographs ArchDaily Area:  83 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2013 “COPY”last_img read more

Greater Manchester Mayor establishes homelessness fund on first day in office

first_img Melanie May | 10 May 2017 | News Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy GoFundMe Distribution of resources will be decided by the fund’s trustees, which include people who have experienced homelessness in Greater Manchester, national homelessness experts, and Ivan Lewis MP and Cllr Beth Knowles, who will co-chair the network and oversee the delivery of Burnham’s plan.Commenting on the launch, Rhodri Davies, head of CAF‘s Giving Thought think tank, said:“It is good news that Andy Burnham has established a community foundation to help tackle homelessness. The fact that it is among his first acts as Mayor of Greater Manchester highlights the vital role charities can play in addressing the challenges facing the region. The Charities Aid Foundation has called on the newly elected mayors to develop a strategy for boosting civic philanthropy and Mr Burnham’s commitment to give 15 per cent of his own salary to the new fund sends a powerful message about the importance of giving.” England’s mayors could boost civic philanthropy, says CAF (17 July 2017) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 Greater Manchester Mayor establishes homelessness fund on first day in officecenter_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Andy Burnham, the newly elected Mayor of Greater Manchester, has announced the establishment of a fund to help the homeless on his first day in office.According to Burnham’s statement on its GoFundMe page, the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund will support frontline projects that can demonstrate they are supporting the Mayor’s objective to end rough sleeping and reduce homelessness by 2020 through initiatives such as:Building specialised supported accommodation for young people with access to education, volunteering and employment opportunities.Expanding mental health and rehabilitation programmes across Greater Manchester, including re-building community mental health support, recovery-led accommodation and arts programmes.Bringing empty properties back in to use for people threatened with becoming homeless.Burnham has already donated £1,375 and has said he will donate 15% of his Mayoral salary to kickstart the fund, which has been set up by Crisis and has a target of £100,000 on its GoFundMe page. So far the fund has raised almost £8,000 from 264 people in four days, and according to Burnham, will ultimately operate as a community foundation.The Mayor has also announced that he is creating a Greater Manchester Homelessness Action Network, consisting of: ‘charities, people who have experienced homelessness, businesses, faith groups, civil society and the region’s local authorities, to share best practice, develop new solutions and progress in the same direction to tackle homelessness across Greater Manchester.’On the GoFundMe page, Burnham calls for support from individuals, community groups and businesses, saying:‘You can help by donating a proportion of your salary, a one off amount or goods such as furniture (as required by local organisations). We are also keen to hear from people who can donate unused building space or organisations which have skills and expertise they wish to offer.’ Advertisement  91 total views,  1 views today  92 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13last_img read more

On the road with the Cuba caravan

first_imgYellow school buses are a common sight in the U.S. Usually the rides are shorter than the 2,300 miles we just covered in 10 days on a very special bus. Ours was just one of the latest to have traversed the North American continent since the early 1990s, to be donated to the revolutionary people of Cuba as a gift of love and solidarity. It was part of the Friendshipment Caravans, organized by the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organizations/Pastors for Peace.This year’s 26th Caravan is traveling through 50 cities and 38 states to take 10 tons of material aid to Cuba, including sewing machines and mobility aids in addition to the two full-size school buses, another small bus and a box truck. Fifty caravanistas will arrive in Cuba just days before the Cuban flag is raised in Washington, D.C., on July 20, signaling the renewal of formal diplomatic relations, which had been broken by the U.S. on Jan. 3, 1961.This summer, participants in both the Friendshipment Caravan and the Venceremos Brigade will once again challenge the illegal, unilateral and internationally condemned U.S. blockade of Cuba.This personal and organizational solidarity dramatizes the fact that the U.S. financial, commercial and economic blockade of Cuba still exists, notwithstanding the intent to restore diplomatic relations announced seven months ago. The 2015 challenges highlight the fact that travel, trade and credit restrictions are still in place, that Guantánamo is still illegally occupied by a U.S. naval base against the will of the Cuban people and their government and even in violation of the imperialist treaty imposed on Cuba, and that regime change programs are still fully funded through the U.S. Agency for International Development, the National Endowment for Democracy, Radio Martí, TV Martí and others.Graduates and current students at Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine participated in many meetings. In Albuquerque, N.M., Dr. Joanna Souers, recently returned from internationalist work in Liberia, explained the origins of the scholarship program that Cuba has offered to students from underserved communities in the U.S. Ten new students will begin their medical school studies this year. Twenty-three others will graduate in July.In Santa Fe, N.M., Kathryn Hall-Trujillo, founding director of Birthing Project USA, showed statistically that for Black babies of any nationality, Cuba is the best place to be born for survival and development. Also participating was a member of Cuba’s National Assembly, Rev. Dr. Ofelia Ortega Suarez from Matanzas.Many organizers of caravan stops embraced the call to organize local support actions during “End the Blockade of Cuba” days set for Washington, D.C. — Sept. 16 through 18, initiated by The International Committee’s Campaign for a Just Policy toward Cuba, IFCO/Pastors for Peace and the Institute for Policy Studies. (TheInternationalCommittee.org)In the U.S., some 77 percent of amputations due to diabetic foot ulcers could be avoided using a treatment developed in Cuba, but it is barred from U.S. residents by the blockade. Cuba’s infant mortality is around four per 1,000 live births, while in Detroit and other oppressed communities in the U.S. it is three times that.Cuba has shown that free education and universal preventive health care for all can be achieved, even in a poor and blockaded country. The resistance of the U.S. ruling class to normal relations has been because the right wing fears letting the people here know the truth about socialism, socialist ideas and solidarity.To follow reports from the caravan and find out how to donate, go to IFCOnews.org, IFCO/Pastors for Peace on Facebook, CubaCaravan2015.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Glitch means some Tarrant taxpayers get a refund

first_imgShane Battis ‘The Big Switch:’ Student spends a day in the chancellor’s shoes Linkedin printA software glitch means that some Tarrant County property owners will be getting a check rather than paying property taxes.The county estimates that 5,000 property owners – seven times more than last year – are owed refunds. In all, about $12 million will be paid out, said Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector Ron Wright.He blamed an erroneous system upgrade Tarrant Appraisal District installed in April.“It was a big mess,” Wright said.The tax collector’s office is still figuring out who is due money back.  Wright said most of the recipients will be homeowners who had tax account changes before April. He said this includes appraisal reductions granted after taxes were paid and applications for a homestead extension.Property owners should receive a check in the mail by Oct. 19, said Wright.“I’ve made it a priority,” Wright said. “It’s the people’s money and we owe it to them.”Call the Appraisal District office at (817)-284-4063 to see check for refund eligibility or wait for a check.

Top two at NTO have their futures mapped out

first_img Facebook Facebook Twitter By admin – May 25, 2018 Top two at NTO have their futures mapped out Pinterest WhatsApp For George H.W. Bush New Tech Odessa valedictorian Serena Hernandez and salutatorian Saray Navarrete, it didn’t matter which one wound up in the top ranking.They have a mutual admiration society.Hernandez, 18, is planning to attend the University of Texas of the Permian Basin to study business. She also has an 11-month-old daughter, Scarlett.Navarrete, 18, is planning to attend Texas Tech University, major in biochemistry and go into premed to ultimately become a pediatric surgeon.They are two of NTO’s 330 students. Graduation is scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.Navarrete also graduated summa cum laude May 12 from Odessa College with an associate degree in general studies.Hernandez also took dual credit classes at Odessa College, but while she gathered a lot of credits, they were not all in the same area.She was secretary of the National Honor Society, president of the robotics club, in academic decathlon for two years and octathlon, which she said is for lower grades, for one year.Hernandez also worked at the writing center for about two and a half years helping students with their papers and works full time at Cinergy in Odessa. She was recently promoted to a supervisor, so she now works 40 or more hours a week.Navarrete was president of the National Honors Society, was in Odyssey of the Mind for three years, academic decathlon for two years, Student Council for one year and a cheerleader for one year.Navarrete also works at Aeropostale and Jorge’s Cafe in Midland.She has been at NTO for three and a half years, having attended Claude High School for one semester.Navarrete said being in the top 10 was always something she and Hernandez set as a goal.“It was really competitive. The way I saw it was we were competitive, but I’d always told her no matter who came up on top, whether she (was) No. 1 or I (was) No. 1, that I hope that it’s either one of us and I’d be proud of both of us for accomplishing so much,” Navarrete said.Last year, Hernandez said Navarrete passed her in the rankings. But Navarrete said this year, it was the difference between how they did in certain classes that determined their rankings.“I was No. 3 my sophomore year. Then I went up to 2 last year. Then the first semester this year, I was No. 1. Then in January she passed me,” Navarrete said.Hernandez said she was always bouncing between No. 1 and No. 2.Her mother, Sheila Hernandez said she always had top grades.Navarrete said she and Hernandez have known each other since sophomore year. Both said they encouraged each other to do well.“I think we motivated each other a lot,” Navarrete said.“I think we were constantly like, ‘We can do it; we can do it,” Hernandez said.Navarrete said they didn’t care who came up No. 1, but they wanted to be in the top two. Hernandez coming up No. 1 didn’t surprise them.Navarrete said she had a feeling it was going to be Hernandez because Hernandez did better than she did in one or two classes.Both said they think New Tech provided good preparation for college because it introduced them to the college application process, visiting colleges and dual credit.“I think it made us realize that we were in charge of our own learning,” Navarrete said.“We had our future in our hands. I feel like that’s what New Tech has taught us a lot,” she added.Hernandez said she never expected to be raising a daughter and going to school at the same time, but she’s glad she did.She added that she had a great support system to help her care for Scarlett. The daycare center provided at Zavala Elementary School also helped a lot, she said.UTPB suggested Hernandez look into the child care center on their campus for when she’s at school.If not, Hernandez said she’d figure something out “because I always do.”Navarrete said she feels Hernandez could be a role model for all students and she’s an inspiration.“I was even going to say it in my salutatorian speech at graduation that I was extremely proud of her because I knew her before Scarlett and she was always very motivated. … And when she did get pregnant, there were a lot of people who I feel played a role in trying to bring her down …,” Navarrete said.People would tell her she was No. 1 in the class currently, but she would slide because she was pregnant. She proved them wrong, Navarrete said.She added that she knows that when Scarlett gets older she’ll admire Hernandez, as well.Navarrete said her mother was a teen mother, too.“I’ve always felt proud of my mom for raising me the way she has, so I feel like Scarlett is going to be able to be like, ‘Hey, my mom did this when I was little. She was valedictorian of her class.’ I feel like she’s going to set a model for Scarlett,” Navarrete said.School counselor Clelia Carrillo said she has seen Hernandez and Navarrete grow through the years.“They have matured. They’re great examples of what our school is hoping to have as graduates,” Carrillo said.George H.W.
