Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 – Round 4

first_imgFriday Mar 23, 2012 Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 – Round 4 It’s that time of the week as we catch up on what happened in the previous round of Super Rugby action, with the Rugby Club Plays of the Week from Fox Sports. This week Sean Maloney takes us back to 2003 with some vintage stuff from Carlos Spencer and the Blues. You will have seen that try in the compilation that was posted on here a few weeks back, featuring the best of King Carlos in that year. Incredible stuff.Back to Round 4 of Super Rugby, and some of the tries featured come from the Cheetahs, who picked up a dramatic win against the Rebels, and from the Force against the Waratahs.Cory Jane had a bit of a ‘sexy and I know it’ moment against the Highlanders, right in the face of Jimmy Cowan. This morning he did a similar thing to another AB halfback teamate, Piri Weepu, after he handed him off to score a try in the Blues vs Hurricanes classic.In the big hits section have a look at young Julian Savea tearing up the opposition. He’s becoming a real threat out wide and this could be the season where he’ll push for higher honours.Wales even managed to sneak into this one, with a shoutout for their Grand Slam win. Enjoy, and as always, please share the post with your friends, and let us know if you enjoyed it.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Plays of the Week Related Articles 123 WEEKS AGO WATCH: France destroy Wales in Women’s Six… 138 WEEKS AGO Waikato winger scores four tries in epic… 304 WEEKS AGO The Wraparound from Rugby HQ – Week 27 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The challenge was to furnish a 100 sqm space “casco” in a spirit “loft” , within a tiny budget. In order to preserve crossing spaces and to bring depth into the views, the idea was simple: to insert all the technical and functional elements in a piece of furniture, placed itself all along the side wall. Then, we put a central volume (bathroom) in the middle of the loft. To this one are grafted a designed furniture (as a Hi-Fi corner in the living room, a desk and a library) which induces separation between two distinct spaces (bedroom on one side, office/guest room on the other). Save this picture!Courtesy of adn ArchitecturesThere is also a concept of modularity via a large sliding door over all the width of the apartment, making it possible to close and open spaces. As conclusion, the room is raised by a estrade, which confers to him its own space statute in relation with the other places of the loft. Thinking at the economy, grounds and ceilings are left rough as such without any modification. The will is to offer an installation of furniture which organize the space. This space wants to be sober, purified, emphasized by specific keys of color and the texture of the existing ground.Save this picture!Courtesy of adn ArchitecturesProject gallerySee allShow lessFootbridge in Maribor / Arhitektura d.o.o.ArticlesKAT-Ohno / CheungvoglArticlesProject locationAddress:Bruselas, BélgicaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Anthony BealeCity:WashingtonCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Allen RussText description provided by the architects. Located within close proximity to Rock Creek Park, and with easy access to the shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue, this large lot in Northwest Washington, DC presented a desirable opportunity for a young family to build a new house in this sought-after neighborhood. Save this picture!© Anice Hoachlander+ 29 Sharecenter_img “COPY” Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderDesigned to respect both the scale of neighboring houses and the rhythm of the streetscape, the project aligns with adjacent houses while retaining the vast majority of mature trees and green space located between the street and the house.  Materials composing the exterior, which include stone, wood and stucco, evoke traditional materials found throughout the neighborhood.  The house appears relatively solid when viewed from the street with strategically placed windows insuring privacy to the street-facing spaces.Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderThe “L” shaped house is organized around the outdoor living spaces and swimming pool, and is oriented towards the large, south facing rear yard. Floor to ceiling expanses of glass provide ample visual and physical connectivity to the terraces, the swimming pool and the wooded landscape beyond. A screened porch, covered deck, roof top deck and balconies continue this dialogue. A small bridge and a stone path engage the house and terraces with the wooded, less manicured landscape at the rear of the property.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanThe interiors are warm, light filled and ordered with a clear spatial organization.  Various wood species, including white oak, Santos mahogany, rosewood and various zebrawoods (all forest certified or reconstituted products) combine with limestone and various granites to provide a rich material palette.  Generous use of skylights creates changing light conditions that activate the interior.Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderDespite the relatively large size of this house and the extensive use of glass, the house remains incredibly energy efficient. While the large amount of windows and skylights provide generous day-lighting, computer programmed shading devices modulate solar gain.  A geothermal HVAC system, including hydronic heating, combines with solar hot water tubes and photovoltaic panels with the goal of providing a net zero energy house.Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderThis project is intended to be respectful of its established neighborhood while infusing a modern sensibility for aesthetics, functionality, ecology and technology.Save this picture!© Allen RussProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Bibliothèque du Boisé / Consortium Labonté Marcil, Cardinal Hardy, Eric Pelletie…Selected ProjectsU.

Nash Tiny House serves as a weekend home for a couple while visiting their daughter in college. The house is located on unused family property outside of Starkville, MS, and is sited in the exact location as a fishing trailer that belonged to the client’s father. This location takes advantage of a natural clearing in the pines and offers western views of the pond.Save this picture!Courtesy of archimaniaSave this picture!Materials diagramSave this picture!Courtesy of archimaniaOutside of typical living spaces, the client requested a sleeping loft and a prominent porch. The design situates one continuous roof and wall plane, with a single ridge at the sleeping loft, around the volume of interior spaces. The full-length porch sits in the space created between these two elements.Save this picture!Courtesy of archimaniaSave this picture!Courtesy of archimaniaThe plane is clad in galvanized standing-seam metal panels as a regular vertical meter against the sculptural pines and the remaining exterior walls in charcoal corrugated metal panels as a third scale of vertical lines.

This path was then continued in the form of a folding, solid ribbon, creating habitable spaces between the plans.

The accommodation is split over three floors with the upper floor situated at ground level.

Army Benevolent Fund to be “the soldiers’ charity”

first_img Howard Lake | 27 March 2008 | News The Army Benevolent Fund logo will change when the charity is renamed The Soldiers’ Charity Tagged with: Individual giving AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Army Benevolent Fund to be “the soldiers’ charity”center_img The Army Benevolent Fund (ABF) is changing its brand description from “the Army’s National Charity” to “the soldiers’ charity” from 1 April 2008.The change is designed to reflect the fact that the charity specifically exists to support all soldiers, both regular and territorial, veterans and their families, in times of need, rather than Army personnel of all ranks.ABF Director of Central Fundraising and Marketing Siân Mexsom said: “We believe that the change of descriptor to the soldiers’ charity makes the purpose of the charity much clearer, it is more relevant and reinforces our commitment to serving and former soldiers.”In October 2007 the ABF launched the Current Operations Fund to help those soldiers who will live with the physical and psychological consequences of the current conflicts for years to come. The fund now stands at £808,000, raised through an integrated marketing campaign using direct mail to existing supporters and national press and poster advertising targeted at new audiences.www.armybenfund.org  35 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

COVID crisis drags down U.S. life expectancy

first_imgThe number of deaths due to COVID-19 in the United States is now over 500,000. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, U.S. life expectancy dropped by a full year from the first six months of 2019 to the first six months of 2020. This is the biggest drop in life expectancy since World War II. The number of U.S. deaths due to COVID is now higher than the number of U.S. deaths on the battlefields of World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq combined.When life expectancy dropped by a few months in 2018, mainly due to opioid overdose deaths in poorer rural communities, it drew a tremendous amount of media attention. This is a much bigger drop, indicating that conditions have seriously worsened and that this pandemic has not been handled correctly.The gaps along racial lines, which were narrowing before 2020, have widened. For whites, life expectancy fell by about eight months, while African Americans lost 2.7 years and Latinxs nearly 2 years. For African-American and Latinx men, the drop was even higher.Dr. Reed Tuckson, founder of the “Black Coalition Against COVID-19,” spoke about these “racial disparities” on PBS NewsHour Feb. 18. He pointed out that oppressed communities are filled with essential workers doing jobs, like driving a bus, that can’t be done from home. More often than not, African Americans live in crowded, multigenerational family housing, which makes social distancing less possible. Finally, many members of these communities suffer from preexisting chronic health issues.Public health, according to Tuckson, is the place that all these factors converge. To overcome this pandemic it is necessary to get at “these structural racism issues, these social determinants of health.”Tuckson is a former commissioner of public health in Washington, D.C., and a member of the board of directors of a major hospital corporation. What was striking about his presentation on PBS was how he acknowledged the pain and suffering this pandemic has caused so many families and individuals. Parents have lost children, and families have lost their elders, who strain to get out their  last words over cell phones or through the windows of old–age homes. Or they die alone with no loved ones to ease their passing. In New York City, during a spike in the pandemic, morgues and funeral homes filled up, and bodies had to be stored in refrigerated trucks.“Capitalism on a ventilator,” a new anthology from the International Action Center and the China U.S. Solidarity Network, has a detailed, careful analysis of the root causes of the disastrous response in the U.S. It pushes back against the racist anti-China campaign in the media. Tweet: @dunkel_greg FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Some USDA Functions Still Running Despite Partial Government Shutdown

first_img Facebook Twitter Some USDA Functions Still Running Despite Partial Government Shutdown U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue detailed which functions of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will remain available in the event of a lapse in government funding. “There may be a lapse in funding for the federal government, but that will not relieve USDA of its responsibilities for safeguarding life and property through the critical services we provide,” said Secretary Perdue. “Our employees work hard every day to benefit our customers and the farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers who depend on our programs. During a shutdown, we will leverage our existing resources as best we can to continue to provide the top-notch service people expect.”Some of the programs that will continue:Meat, poultry, and processed egg inspection services.Grain and other commodity inspection, weighing, grading, and IT support services funded by user fees.Inspections for import and export activities to prevent the introduction and dissemination of pests into and out of the U.S, including inspections from Hawaii and Puerto Rico to the mainland.Care for animals, plants and associated infrastructure to preserve agricultural research and to comply with the Wild Horses and Burros statute.Eligible households will still receive monthly Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for January.Most other domestic nutrition assistance programs, such as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, WIC, and the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, can continue to operate at the State and local level with any funding and commodity resources that remain available.The Child Nutrition (CN) Programs, including School Lunch, School Breakfast, Child and Adult Care Feeding, Summer Food Service and Special Milk will continue operations into February. Meal providers are paid on a reimbursement basis 30 days after the end of the service month. Carryover funding will be available during a lapse to support FY 2019 meal service.Provision of conservation technical and financial assistance (such as Conservation Reserve Program, Environmental Quality Incentives Program, and easement programs).Some farm payments (including direct payments, market assistance loans, market facilitation payments, and disaster assistance programs) will be continued for the first week of a shutdown.Market Facilitation Program payments.Trade mitigation purchases made by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.Agricultural export credit and other agricultural trade development and monitoring activities.USDA’s Market News Service, which provides critically important market information to the agricultural industry.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Some USDA Functions Still Running Despite Partial Government Shutdown By NAFB News Service – Dec 23, 2018 SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articlePresident Trump Signs Farm Bill and Nielsen on Non GMO Corn on the HAT Friday Morning EditionNext articlePurdue Conference Focuses on Improving Farm Profitability NAFB News Servicelast_img read more
