The Rugby Club Plays of the Week – Bam Bam!

first_imgThursday Jul 8, 2010 The Rugby Club Plays of the Week – Bam Bam! The Fox Sports Plays of the Week today focus on two things in particular. First up, its the discarded Drew Mitchell and the great try he scored this past weekend. The focus then turns to the Tri Nations, and a preview ahead of the big match in a few days time.The Mitchell issue is an interesting one as he was written off by the Rugby Club pundits last week after some poor Wallaby performances. He then showed them up by scoring a fantastic solo try for Randwick against Sydney University in the Shute Shield.Today though, he was surprisingly axed from the Wallaby squad for the Tri Nations, along with fellow winger Lachie Turner. Coach Robbie Deans has said that he wants to look at a few players and how they perform in club rugby.Mitchell will naturally want to continue with his try scoring feats if he wants to join his mates in one of the toughest competitions on the planet. The Tri Nations kicks off this weekend as holders South Africa take on the All Blacks in Auckland.The Rugby Club looks back at some of the finer moments from last year and then profiles a few players that need to be watched in the 2010 edition. Namely Pierre Spies for the Boks, Maa Nonu for the ABs, and David Pocock for the Wallabies.

Seaforth House / MASQ architecture

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. Sitting on the escarpment at Seaforth the site is blessed with spectacular south facing views down to the Spit. Central to the idea of the project is how the natural environment can be extended and form an integral part of the house. The green escarpment is carried through the front garden and the path to the entry slowly transforms from natural to more formed and solid as the approach continues. Ultimately with the garden mature the building will appear to be completely part of the surrounding landscape; a monolithic form rising out of a green base.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe house is conceived of as two distinct pavilions; a public wing with the living spaces and a private wing containing bedrooms and ancillary spaces.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ben GuthrieSave this picture!First floor planThe living areas open both to the front and rear gardens. The roof kicks up to the west allowing a large north window to occupy the highest section providing north sun and light into a south orientated living room. The kitchen tucks onto the back of the space opening to the rear patio and external living areas. The private wing is L-shaped in plan with bedrooms at the upper level. The layout allows for a large undercover outdoor area that wraps around a ground level courtyard. A small strip of landscape allows the rear garden to flow into the courtyard, thereby continuing the idea of the natural environment being as much a part of the house as possible.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe material palette is deliberately restrained with the use of concrete blocks, off form concrete and timber cladding for the upper level. The house is solid at its base and becomes lighter above the ground floor datum. The house is earthed and feels connected to the ground with both the concrete blocks and timber cladding brought internally to reinforce this notion.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieProject gallerySee allShow lessStilts House / Natura Futura ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsOle Scheeren Unveils Design for High Rise ‘Barclay Village’ Project in VancouverArchitecture News Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897840/seaforth-house-masq-architecture Clipboard 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897840/seaforth-house-masq-architecture Clipboard Ted Quinton, Alan Smuskowitz Seaforth House / MASQ architectureSave this projectSaveSeaforth House / MASQ architecture Photographs “COPY” CopyHouses•Seaforth, Australia Architects: MASQ architecture Area Area of this architecture project Houses Seaforth House / MASQ architecture Photographs:  Ben Guthrie Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Builder: ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeMASQ architectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeaforthAustraliaPublished on July 10, 2018Cite: “Seaforth House / MASQ architecture” 10 Jul 2018.

NGỌC House was built at Nha Be district, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

We design the transparent floor space next to the core of the ladder, creating the connection of floors by stairs and by the floor space. In front of the bedrooms, there is a loggia to relax for each member of that bedroom.Save this picture!© Minq BuiSave this picture!Section BBetween the loggia of the two bedrooms is the floor space in order to create a private distance but with a connection, and at the same time the floor space works to get the light and wind for the bedrooms indirectly. The landing space of the stairs is used as a private play space for children. Behind the house is a large yard that increases the ventilation of the kitchen area and is the ideal place to read the newspaper and sip a cup of coffee.Save this picture!© Minq BuiSecurity is also of primary concern when the house is located in a densely populated city. The façade is designed with sunshades and folding doors that can open and close arbitrarily, the door can be closed to ensure security when the owner is away and when the door is open, it will increase ventilation. Sunshades allow homeowners to maximize visibility outside but can still limit the view of strangers entering.Save this picture!© Minq BuiProject gallerySee allShow lessInnovation Curve Technology Park at Stanford Research Park / Form4 ArchitectureSelected ProjectsThe Light Trap / Sher MakerSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeStory ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHo Chi Minh CityOn FacebookVietnamPublished on December 17, 2020Cite: “NGỌC House / Story Architecture” 16 Dec 2020.

Government Approves Smithfield Purchase

first_img Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Government Approves Smithfield Purchase Previous articleThe Sky is Falling, Yet AgainNext articleKeep that Nitrogen Where it Belongs Gary Truitt SHARE Shuanghui (shawn-way) International Holdings and Smithfield Foods announced Friday they received clearance from the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment on their proposed transaction – according to the Hagstrom Report. This decision disturbs National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson – saying the deal represents the sale of one-quarter of U.S. hog processing to a quasi-state owned Chinese enterprise – setting a dangerous precedent in terms of food security and market competition. Johnson says NFU urges Congress, the Administration and other decision makers to oppose this sale – as the organization believes foreign-backed control will only make the situation worse. Assistant Secretary for International Markets and Development Marisa Lago says CFIUS has only one purpose – to review the potential national security effects of transactions through which a foreign investor could obtain control of a U.S. business. Lago says CFIUS does not consider broader economic or policy concerns when reviewing foreign investments – applying the same rules to each transaction it reviews regardless of the nationality of the investor or economic sector of the investment. Still – in order for the sale of Smithfield to go through – shareholder approval is still needed. Smithfield’s shareholders are scheduled to vote on the sale at a special meeting on September 24th. Some lawmakers have expressed concerns the deal could jeopardize U.S. food safety and raise pork prices for American consumers. In June – they requested the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. to include USDA and the Food and Drug Administration in their deliberations. Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow also questioned if this would encourage China to purchase other U.S. food companies. During a Committee hearing – she called it important to evaluate how foreign purchases of our food supply will affect our economy. She expressed the belief that economic security is part of our national security and should be considered when foreign investment into the U.S. is reviewed. Stabenow says the Senate Agriculture Committee will continue examining the effectiveness of the review process for acquisitions such as this and take steps as needed to protect American interests in future transactions.center_img Facebook Twitter Government Approves Smithfield Purchase SHARE By Gary Truitt – Sep 8, 2013 last_img read more

TCU overpowers Richmond to advance to NIT Semifinals at Madison Square Garden

first_imgTwitter ReddIt printOn the one year anniversary of TCU head coach Jamie Dixon’s arrival in Fort Worth, TCU out-muscled the Richmond Spiders in Fort Worth, out-rebounding their opponent 39-22 en route to a dominant 86-68 victory Tuesday night. The win sends the Horned Frogs to the the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden in New York for the first time in school history.“This program has come so far from when I was here my freshman year with a winless conference season, 0-18, and now I’m headed to New York for the semifinals of the NIT,” TCU guard Brandon Parrish said. “It hurt not to go to the NCAA tournament, but when you play for a team that hasn’t seen the postseason in years how can that not motivate you to do your best to bring an enthusiasm to the basketball program that hasn’t been seen in so long.”Dixon has surpassed the expectations set out for him in his first year at his alma mater.“This is maybe a little ahead of schedule in terms of the atmosphere here,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “Chris [Del Conte] told me to slow down, but I’m not good with slowing down and patience.”The game started out as a close affair, but that all changed after the 13:02 mark in the first half when TCU led Richmond by just a point, 10-9. After that, the Horned Frogs went on an 11-0 run that pushed TCU’s lead to 12, 21-9, powered by TCU forward Vladimir Brodzianksy, who scored six of the points on the run through a variety of a jump-hook, lay-up, and pull-up jumper.TCU forward Kenrich Williams missed a first-half double-double by a point, as he went into the locker room with nine points and ten rebounds. However, he finished the game with TCU’s first ever triple-double, totaling 11 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists.“I didn’t even know I was close to a triple-double right until the end when my teammates told me, so I looked for that last pass,” TCU guard Kenrich Williams said. “My teammates did a great job of making plays tonight.”Williams sat out the entirety of the 2015-2016 campaign after needing knee surgery.“It’s a blessing to do this, having sat on the sidelines all of last year,” Williams said.Dixon was unsure how Williams would look post-surgery.“We didn’t know what we had in Kenrich at the beginning of the year, and now we know know he has it,” Dixon said. “His versatility is unbelievable.”TCU forward Vladimir Brodziansky scored 16 of his team-high 20 points in the first 20 minutes on an efficient five-of-eight shooting, as the Horned Frogs led 41-26 at the half.Just 2:15 into the second half, the Horned Frogs went on a 13- 1 run on the strength of three three-pointers by Desmond Bane, JD Miller, and Brandon Parrish in a span of about 90 seconds.The TCU lead ballooned to as much as 22, 75-53, with 6:10 left in the game.The Horned Frogs’ four seniors Brandon Parrish, Karviar Shepherd, Chris Washburn Jr., and Mike Williams capped off their final game in Fort Worth in style, addressing the crowd over the public address system before heading to the locker room.“We thank the TCU community and our students each and every day for what they’ve done for us and the energy they’ve brought to Schollmaier Arena to provide a home court advantage like ours,” TCU guard Brandon Parrish said.TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini played his part in rallying the students for Tuesday’s game, paying for a free hot dog, bag of chips, drink, and ice cream for every student in attendance. “I just wanted to thank our students for how they’ve shown up all basketball season,” Boschini said. “I think having them all here really made a difference.”Up NextThe Horned Frogs next game will be at the NIT Semifinals in New York against the winner of Wednesday’s game between University of Illinois and University of Central Florida.Reaching the Semifinals of the NIT is an accomplishment for a basketball program that hadn’t reached the postseason since 2005, but Dixon isn’t satisfied with where his team is yet.“We still have more things to prove this season,” Dixon said.TCU’s next game will tipoff at Madison Square Garden in New York March 28th at either six or eight p.m. against either Illinois or UCF.

There’s no doubt that the individuals and communities we serve are the most vulnerable in an economic crisis and we are doing our best to streamline our operations to ensure maximum impact.”Among her many achievements at Hillsides, Ley-Sanchez has helped with capacity-building partnerships with community organizations that paved the way to expanded networks of care for our clients.

Michael Avenatti won’t be charged for alleged domestic violence at this time

first_imgDrew Angerer/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — High-profile lawyer Michael Avenatti, best known as a critic of President Donald Trump and for representing pornstar Stormy Daniels, will not be charged for alleged domestic violence at this time.The Los Angeles City Attorney announced Friday that, after reviewing all of the investigative reports and considering all of the evidence in the case, it would not be filing charges against the lawyer.The case had been sent to the LA City Attorney for possible misdemeanor charges after the Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to file felony charges last year.Avenatti was arrested last November on suspicion of felony domestic violence. LAPD detectives booked Avenatti and he was released on $50,000 bond.Actress Mareli Miniutti, who received a restraining order against Avenatti, claimed in court documents that the two had been living together. She alleged that they were in an argument over money when he called her names, hit her in the face with pillows and dragged her across an apartment floor. Avenatti has always maintained his innocence.After the latest decision not to file charges, Avenatti took to Twitter, writing, “I am extremely thankful that after three thorough investigations, one by the LAPD, one by the LA District Attorney, and one by the LA City Attorney, the truth of my innocence is now established and no charges are being brought.”However, the LA City Attorney is leaving the door open to possible future charges. Hearings have been set for Miniutti and Avenatti to give their sides of the story to the city attorney’s office. The case remains open and charges could be filed in the future.Miniutti’s attorney, Michael Bachner, told ABC News that he had been told by the LA City Attorney’s Office that it believes Avenatti assaulted Miniutti but decided not to charge him because it was worried a jury would not convict him.“It is an outrage that this decision was made particularly since Ms. Miniutti was never interviewed by any member of the City Attorney’s Office despite our requests and despite pictures of her injuries,” Bachner wrote in a statement to ABC News. “It is clear to us that the City Attorney simply found it easier to avoid doing his job.”The LA City Attorney’s Office said it had no comment in response to Bachner’s claims.

Written by March 19, 2021 /Sports News – National NCAA apologizes to women’s basketball players for weight room disparity Oh and it’s women’s history month…. the irony. https://t.co/JD4mFqkwlD— Sedona Prince (@sedonaprince_) March 19, 2021Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry retweeted the viral video, saying, “Come on now!”Ali Kershner, a sports performance coach at Stanford University, also posted images to Instagram Thursday contrasting the women’s sparse weight room to the men’s more lavish one in Indianapolis.“This needs to be addressed. These women want and deserve to be given the same opportunities,” Kershner said. “In a year defined by a fight for equality this is a chance to have a conversation and get better.”In an initial statement Thursday evening, Holzman said limited space in the tournament bubble was a factor in the amenities available.On Friday, Holzman said the NCAA was “actively working” on addressing the women’s facilities, promising that improvements would be in place by Saturday morning.Dan Gavitt, senior vice president of basketball for the NCAA, took the blame for the weight room controversy and said it will be fixed “as soon as possible.”“I apologize to women’s basketball student-athletes, to the coaches, Women’s Basketball Committee for dropping the ball, frankly, on the weight room issue in San Antonio,” Gavitt said during Friday’s press briefing.Holzman said the NCAA became aware of the training facility concerns through social media on Thursday. Within a few hours, the NCAA held a conference call with coaches and administrators to solicit feedback.“We’re trying to do the right thing,” Holzman said.The weight room isn’t the only area the NCAA is addressing. Athletes have also voiced concerns about the quality of food at the women’s tournament while athletes are quarantining. Holzman said Friday that they have been working to provide athletes with more options that can be delivered to the controlled environment.The weight room disparity has touched on larger issues of inequality in women’s college basketball.“The women’s basketball tournament ought to be an NCAA flagship event, yet it continues to be treated as some kind of cheap subsidized junior varsity by the book-cooking crooks,” Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins wrote in a column Friday. “All these women ever do is raise their arc of performance, command steadily increasing viewership and graduate at a sky-high rate of 93%. For which they get petty insults and cheap treatment.”In a video statement Friday in response to Prince’s video, tennis trailblazer Billie Jean King criticized the NCAA’s use of “Final Four” on social media to only highlight the men’s tournament.“We’re always supposed to be so happy with just anything, the crumbs, whatever — we’re not happy anymore,” King said. “We want equity. We want equality. We want the same.”center_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailmatimax/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — NCAA officials apologized for “dropping the ball” after providing women’s basketball players with training facilities inferior to men’s during the Division 1 tournaments.“We fell short this year in what we’ve been doing to prepare in the last 60 days for 64 for teams to be here in San Antonio, and we acknowledge that,” Lynn Holzman, the NCAA’s vice president of women’s basketball, said during a press briefing Friday, after images and video surfaced on social media showing the stark differences between the women’s and men’s weight room facilities in Texas and Indiana, respectively.The apology comes after University of Oregon forward Sedona Prince posted a video Thursday night of the women’s tournament weight room, which consisted of a single set of dumbbells. The video then showed what she said was the men’s tournament weight room, which was stocked with rows of weights and training equipment.“If you’re not upset about this problem, then you are a part of it,” Prince said.
