Ireland v France: Five things we learnt

first_imgIreland’s centre Keith Earls is tackled by France’s lock Bernard Le RouxReplacements doing their job. Well.Ireland took a while to get into their groove with 23-man rugby, but it’s been a critical part of their success under Schmidt – bench options have been trusted and have delivered – a fact hammered home by Brian O’Driscoll in the post-match analysis. When team leaders were leaving the pitch, there was never a sense that Ireland would be unable to cope – and, indeed, were taken to a higher level by the majority of the replacements.Ian Madigan. Take a bow.Madigan’s on-pitch emotions at the end of the game struck a chord with Irish fans (he’d spotted his parents in the crowd) – he has spent the last two years stuck behind an All Black journeyman at provincial level and had to listen to everyone telling you that he’s the ‘poor man’s Carlos Spencer’ – an extravagantly talented player who cannot control a game. No longer can that be levelled at the bequiffed one. It was his a game where he came of age in the green shirt.Coming of age: Ireland’s Ian Madigan is stopped by Benjamin KayserThe endgame Ireland fans celebrate their teams victory against France. Picture: Getty Images By Whiff of CorditeWhat about that? Ireland finally exploded into this tournament in a game that encompassed every positive from the Schmidt era – strong processes, disciplined defence and accurate rugby, all allied to proper old-school emotional highs of days of yore.Even as Ireland’s players dropped like flies, the team cranked it up to another level – as the collective desire wrought out a hard-fought win. So, what did we learn during their World Cup match?Systems, systems, systems…Joe Schmidt’s Ireland are built on a strong systemic foundation – when players step into the team, they know exactly what their role will be and what needs to happen. When Johnny Sexton went off, Ian Madigan came in and ran the game excellently, in his best performance in green. When O’Connell went off, Iain Henderson was a force of nature. When Peter O’Mahony left the fray, Chris Henry was a seemless replacement. Compare that to France, who became more and more shapeless as the game went on – Ireland, despite losing key men, had a foundation to fall back on. France had rien.Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt, talks to his players during the warm up during match between France and Ireland. Picture: LaurenceEmotional InvestmentIreland have ressembled something like a chess-playing computer under Joe Schmidt. The second-half of this game heralded a return to something like (cover your eyes) more traditional values of huge emotional energy driving a performance. The cold detatchment of the Six Nations was abandoned as Ireland responded to adversity by putting more and more energy into the game. It was spectacular to watch and be part of – and one can only hope that it hasn’t taken too much from the team.

The challenge against Argentina is going to be replicating that while missing 252 caps of experience (Paul O’Connell, Johnny Sexton, Peter O’Mahony and potentially Sean O’Brien).

In this new home the client brief was for a low maintenance home to accommodate an expanding family with regular guests.

The design incorporates a range of outdoor spaces as an extension of the living spaces.

Save this picture!Courtesy of opat architectsIn this new house the client’s brief was for a low maintenance home to accommodate an expanding family with regular guests. They wanted a playful home that would allow them to customise and grow into it over time. Located in a semi-rural context, one hour from Melbourne, the house is designed to function independently of mains water, gas, sewerage and electricity. Save this picture!Courtesy of opat architectsWe decided on a backbone concept of a tent-made-solid. We found this a conceptually, structurally, environmentally and economically appropriate response to the brief. Throughout the process good building practice created a tension with my desire to express this idea more literally. A sustainability consultant guided the selection of all materials. External walls and roof are insulated lightweight structure and finish. The fireplace and concrete floors provide the thermal mass. Ecoply is used for the courtyard surface and radially sawn Silver Top Ash for external board and batten cladding. Save this picture!Courtesy of opat architectsThe house was positioned amongst existing trees to minimise felling. The depth (north south) of the plan, height of ceilings, circulation of air, catchment of heat and controlling seasonal direct natural light were refined to optimise the passive solar effectiveness. The brief crystallized into a loose arrangement of discreet living and utility buildings. The need to avoid internal overshadowing resolved itself by arranging the buildings in a square. The spaces in-between then grew into outdoor living areas. Introducing a courtyard house to a one hectare site offered seclusion and hierarchy into an otherwise open field. Save this picture!Courtesy of opat architectsThe result is a house comprised of outdoor spaces that are an extension of living areas, the interplay of which form verandah, portico, catwalk and breezeway. All combine to offer a spectrum of indoor and outdoor experiences. The roofscape directly responds to the interior functions, monumental over the living spaces and low slung over dormitories. The roof edge is expressed as an upper layer, a cloak over the external walls that continues on to meet the ground at the rear.

In contrast the courtyard employs a lighter colour thus accentuating the courtyard as a type of interior. The architectural process revealed a design force in the study of the sun.

At the edge of the salt marshes of Guerande, in the village of Queniquen , this old barn was one of the last witnesses of the artisan activity on . The project involves the restoration of the existing shed to form 4 duplex apartments ( 2 T3 and 2T4 ) and a 40m ² area to facilitate community activities.
Save this picture!SectionOver time, this village situated within the marsh was gradually transformed into an ordinary residential neighbourhood. The farmland and hillside were gradually enveloped by construction of houses in the middle of their plot of 1000m ². The aim of the project was to highlight the vast space of the building, doing so in a style faithful to the surrounding village landscape . This unusual space is highlighted by sober details and the use of matte black, accentuating the contrast with the existing surroundings.Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauBlack cladding is well suited to the architectural style of Salorges, and the salt barns which dot the territory of the Guerande peninsula. This choice of color helped to reduce the visual impact of an otherwise imposing building. 
The space of the barn has allowed the opportunity to make four compact duplex apartments of the same size, each with a separate entrance. The windows were aligned to conform to the layout plan of the facade, with roof drainpipes inset to be hidden from view.

A single-family house located in Uribelarrea, Partido de Cañuelas, Buenos Aires. The project is implemented on a large lot (of 1 hectare) between two large poplar trees that serve as a wind barrier and as parasols in the summer. It consists of an open ground floor with service areas. Then the public and private sectors are located on the elevated floor, detaching themselves from the humid soil, thus achieving excellent views of the landscape. The functional approach is developed on a flexible floor around the vertical core (courtyard/staircase) generating a large entrance with natural lighting in the centre of the house, linking all levels to the garden terrace.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralConcept: The house is made up of two large horizontal suspended plates, pierced by the central courtyard, accompanied with vertical planes that go on to configure the envelope together with the large openings and sliding wooden panels. Conceptually, the tall volume can be completely opened to the landscape, achieving privacy and lighting control through its parasols.Program: Access to the house is achieved from the ground floor by taking the external staircase located in the central courtyard, crossing a semi-covered gallery that works as a transition between the landscape and the architecture. On the first floor, the public sector is developed oriented towards the front of the lot (north orientation) and the private sector to the east, capturing the morning sun. The workspace and kitchen are located on the sides. All spaces have a direct connection with the landscape and the internal courtyard, achieving natural ventilation in all environments, including the sanitary core. As a finish to the tour, we find the garden terrace becoming a viewpoint towards the natural landscape surrounded by green in all its extension.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Floor Plan First FloorSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralSustainability: To reduce the use of heating, aluminium frames with DVH were used. This improves the thermal comfort and acoustic insulation of the house. The utilized system was a radiant water slab with a wood-fired boiler as a heat source and a recirculating pump generating the water flow. The provision of hot water is achieved through the installation of solar panels located on the terrace. Control of the direct entry of sunlight is solved by means of sliding panels and by the natural screen generated by the existing trees located on the sides. The garden terrace together with cross ventilation play an important role in improving interior thermal comfort. Finally, the purification of domestic wastewater is achieved through a biodigester tank obtaining an organic fertilizer that improves the quality of the soil.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Transversal SectionSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralProject gallerySee allShow lessAdelfas Residential Building / Ruiz Larrea y AsociadosSelected ProjectsUniversidad Torcuato di Tella Edificio Sáenz Valiente / Josep Ferrando ArchitectureSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Uribelarrea, Argentina Houses “COPY” Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Uribelarrea House / Estudio SSARQSave this projectSaveUribelarrea House / Estudio SSARQ Argentina Area: 110 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects CopyAbout this officeEstudio SSARQOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on July 17, 2020Cite: “Uribelarrea House / Estudio SSARQ” [Casa Uribelarrea / Estudio SSARQ] 17 Jul 2020.

Kansas unions, community speak out

first_imgWichita, Kan. — At a legislative listening session on March 23 in Wichita, Kan., dozens of members from a rainbow of labor-community organizations grilled and confronted legislators on a variety of topics for two hours. The more than 40 speakers at Wichita State University’s Metroplex building made demands including the legalization of medical marijuana, the expansion and full funding of Medicaid, legalization for immigrants, complete reproductive freedom for women, an end to attacks on unions, an end to public school closings and charter schools, and many other people’s concerns.The rousing session included many rounds of loud applause and chants of approval for the people’s speakers, despite various legislators — some of whom are American Legislative Exchange Council members — saying that these responses were not allowed. Some of the biggest approval from the audience of more than 250 was for women speakers demanding, “End the war on women.”Before the forum began, members of the musical band, Shoulder-to-Shoulder, welcomed forum participants at the outside entrance with people’s songs such as “We Shall Not Be Moved” and Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land.” The band played on despite a bitterly cold day, a snowstorm and security police attempting to move them to a “free speech zone” on the other side of the building.The March 23 forum was preceded by a similar legislative forum on March 2 in Wichita. More than 300 teachers from the United Teachers of Wichita and other labor-community members packed that event with a standing-room-only crowd.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The case is the same as the one against US journalist Andrew Meldrum, local correspondent of the British daily The Guardian.The journalists asked for permission to appeal to the Supreme Court to test the constitutionality of the press law on grounds that it violates the freedom of expression guaranteed under the Constitution. Judge Sandra Nhau granted permission for this on 24 July. The trial will resume as soon as the Supreme Court has ruled on the matter_________________________________________________________________07.18.2002High Court judge Anele Matika suspended the deportation order against Meldrum and sent his appeal on to the Constitutional Court, saying he had a constitutional right to live and work in Zimbabwe that the interior minister could not revoke in what he said were “unclear circumstances”.Meldrum will argue to the Constitutional Court that his rights were violated and that the deportation order was illegal and unfounded because he was no threat to the security of the government or the country, despite what the minister implied. He said the expulsion order was “part of a plot by the government to stifle press freedom in Zimbabwe” . The Constitutional Court should hear his appeal in the next few months. In a similar case last year, the Court allowed a BBC correspondent, Joseph Winter, to stay in the country despite a deportation order. However, Winter later left Zimbabwe after the secret police broke into his house in the middle of the night._________________________________________________________________07.16.2002Meldrum today denounced the government’s order to deport him as “unjust and illegal.” “I am challenging the legality and fairness of the order to throw me out of the country soon after I had won a landmark case against the government,” he said.Meldrum’s lawyer has lodged an urgent appeal with the High Court against the expulsion order, which information minister Jonathan Moyo said was issued because the journalist had broken the terms of his permanent residence permit, though he did not say how.High Court judge Anele Matika today postponed the initial 24-hour deportation deadline by a day, until 1700h (1500 GMT) tomorrow (17 July). Meldrum sought a meeting with home affairs minister John Nkomo but the minister said he had laryngitis and could not see him.President Robert Mugabe’s government has already deported two foreign journalists and refused to renew the work permits of many others.

He said this was “consistent with a government that is trying to stop me reporting what is going on here.”Reporters Without Borders notes that nine other journalists from independent media in Zimbabwe are awaiting trial on similar charges under the new press law (the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act).
