Lions 2013: The Series XV

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Late but still great: replacement Corbisiero scores in Sydney1. Alex CorbisieroThe finale could well have been a dead rubber if Corbisiero’s calf had allowed him to play in Melbourne. Good in the first Test and phenomenal in the third, he was heralded by Adam Jones as “unbelievable”. If a couple of trundles in the loose were a nice bonus, his set-piece technique was game-changing as the scrum once more pierced Australia’s traditional Achilles heel. Corbisiero simply bullied Ben Alexander to sap all of the Wallabies’ momentum.2. Stephen MooreMoore must take some responsibility for how his front row buckled so badly in Sydney, but hit his jumpers unerringly at lineout-time and offered mighty industry in a pair of 80-minute shifts at the Suncorp and Etihad Stadiums. He brought 80 caps of mongrel and experience to the party, buoying his team-mates and spoiling the tourists at close-quarters. Worthy mentions for Tom Youngs and Richard Hibbard, both tough as teak and well at home in the Test cauldron.3. Adam JonesWorth each of his 120 kilograms of weight in gold, Jones is a pillar of power and consistency who tortured Robinson at will and came up with the defining penalty of the tour when he popped the Australian loosehead after 50 minutes of the third Test as the hosts were circling like vultures at just 19-16 down. It speaks volumes that there were synchronised calls from all corners of Britain and Ireland compelling Gatland to keep him on longer rather than carry out pre-planned substitutions.Engine room antics: Jones & Horwill battle it out4. Alun-Wyn JonesSlightly subdued in the early stages of this trip before exploding into life against the Waratahs and maintaining that heady level in the environment he adores – Test match rugby. An imposing physical specimen, Jones’ awesome athleticism allowed him to rack up an incredible 12 carries in the decider, topping the tackle-count as well. He also filled the considerable leadership void left by Paul O’Connell, Sam Warburton and Brian O’Driscoll. He was that good.5. James HorwillWell, it might get awkward in the boiler-room. But Lions tours are not complete without villains, and Australia’s captain did an admirably irritating job over the three weeks. Of course that was compounded by the clumsy contact with Jones’s face – and the subsequent farce masquerading as a disciplinary process – but Horwill also left it all on the pitch every time. A sturdy lineout option, a tireless tackler and a burly carrier, he offered the lot. If he had kept his head instead of spurning Leali’ifano’s tee at the weekend, who knows?6. Ben MowenAssured and abrasive in equal measure, this was as impressive an introduction to international sport as you will ever see. Shackled Mike Phillips and freed Folau for his second in Brisbane to mark an immense debut but also called the lineouts and worked relentlessly throughout the series. Dan Lydiate did what he says on the tin brilliantly – namely tackling his ankle strapping off – but Mowen’s beginning was so auspicious that Ewen McKenzie would do well to build a pack around the level-headed Brumbie.7. Sam WarburtonThis was a tough one, as Warburton’s best performance – a sparkling 66 minutes in Melbourne – saw him end up on the losing side after Michael Hooper profited from his torn hamstring to haul Australia onto the front foot in the final stages. That hour and a bit from the Lions skipper was fantastic, though, running the breakdown and keeping referee Craig Joubert in his pocket. He was also marginally better than Hooper at Suncorp, despite Chris Pollock’s abject interpretation of the ruck area. not for featured 8. Toby FaletauOnly needed 80 minutes to take this accolade, but is well worth his spot after taking the decider by storm. Brute strength was deadly at the base of such a solid scrum platform, but lineout ability and a couple of timely turnovers rendered his omission from the first two Tests quite ridiculous. Showed up the pedestrian Wycliff Palu and, at just 22, can set his sights on a 2017 siege of New Zealand. Little Lion man: Leigh Halfpenny, the Lions 2013 Player of the Series, is the first on our Series XV team sheetBy Charlie Morgan SO IN the end it was a pair of props and a rampant last twenty minutes that prised two balanced outfits apart, the Lions power game coming to the fore in the final stages of a truly enthralling series. But who gets the nod in a combined XV to take on all-comers? As three (well, two-and-a-half) tight tussles suggest, it is a fairly even split.15. Leigh HalfpennyA total no-brainer to start with, Halfpenny’s record haul of 49 points – surpassing that of his mentor Neil Jenkins in 1997 – only tells part of a pretty special story. Deadly from the tee, the full back also excelled positionally, something accentuated by the ease with which he fielded Will Genia’s clearance during the third Test before embarking on a scything run to set up George North. He demonstrated typical disregard for his body when required in defence over the course of series, too. Kurtley Beale’s attacking verve gave him a shout, but he was up against an inspired opponent.14. Israel Folau‘Freakish’ seems to have been the adjective of choice regarding Folau ever since his baby steps in rugby league and the confidence with which the 24 year-old made a first foray into union at Test level confirmed his otherworldly ability. A superb second score that combined incredible strength and grace during the first Test stands out, but Folau was threatening with just about every touch. Australia missed him when a hamstring problem ended his involvement, despite the searing pace of replacement Jesse Mogg.Cooling off: Ashley-Cooper is part of an all-gold midfield13. Adam Ashley-CooperOne horror pass into the clutches of Sean O’Brien at ANZ Stadium aside, Ashley-Cooper was extremely plucky. Epitomising the Wallaby way – fighting furiously for everything – his harrying presence defined how much more his team valued possession in the second Test and that last-gasp try deserves credit for the deadly line that made it. He defied a shoulder injury to impress in the opener against Brian O’Driscoll too, although was outplayed by Jonathan Davies at the weekend.12. Christian Leali’ifanoPerhaps a controversial pick to secure an all-gold midfield, but nobody really stamped their authority here – Davies very much looked a man out of position and Jamie Roberts was quiet before bursting away for a fine seven-pointer. For bouncing back from a first-minute knockout on debut, though, Leali’fano merits plenty of praise. Nailed a nerveless conversion in Melbourne to send the series to the wire, and defended a crowded channel admirably on the back foot in Sydney until a tired last quarter.11. George NorthA simply stunning Brisbane try and an equally amazing fireman’s carry on Folau a week later provided two of the truly iconic moments of the sporting summer, while a second score on Saturday from Halfpenny’s slicing kick-return killed the contest off. North arrived in Australia with a big reputation and enhanced it. One blemish in 240 minutes – a failed blitz late in the second Test – could not stop his ascent to the status of bona fide world-beater. Northampton Saints have got themselves a diamond.10. Johnny SextonFar from perfect – Sexton mixed sparks of decisive, innovative play with a couple of odder decisions and uncharacteristic defensive lapses – but the Irishman had enough in his tank to oust James O’Connor, who is unlikely to see his country’s No 10 jersey again without Robbie Deans holding the reins. Might have been stifled by Warren Gatland’s round-the-corner commitment, but didn’t seem to care as he celebrated with Daniel Craig under the Sydney stars.9. Will GeniaThe elementary spill from Sexton’s kick-off that set the tone for Saturday shocked the world, and with good reason – Genia errors are remarkably rare. The best scrum-half on the planet with daylight sitting second, he remains terrifying around the fringes and consistently able to ignite a try-scoring move from anywhere on the field. Mobilised his forwards fantastically throughout, firing the likes of Benn Robinson and Stephen Moore over the gain-line whenever he pleased – an unparalleled general.last_img read more

XThe existing City Beach house is located at The Boulevard, a tree-lined wide drive with generous grass verges that connects the Perth suburbs of Leederville and Wembley with the Indian Ocean.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackThe original dwelling was designed by architect GE Swallow in 1962, and is a beautifully intact example of early 60’s West Australian modernist Architecture.  It comprises a low-pitched metal roof, with Donnybrook Stone and painted brickwork to the façade, whilst internally Jarrah floorboards and slim natural brickwork are expressed.Located on a sloping site, the original building is split level with a double garage off the street and steps to a raised North-facing Verandah.  The `site is on a North-South alignment and is protected from the worst of the strong southwesterly gusts from the ocean, being a distance of 1000m away to the beach and sheltered via adjacent trees.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackThe clients, a young and design conscious professional couple, wished to extend their house into the garden to make better use of their private outdoor living space, and maximise the indoor/ outdoor lifestyle. The existing condition of the house incorporated a renovated kitchen, which was located across the back wall of the house.  This element did not retain any original features of the 1960’s house, but formed a visual barrier between the living spaces and garden. The owners had recently built a swimming pool and wished to make more of this.Save this picture!Section BYThe concept was to extrude the existing living space out and into the garden.  This alignment took the form of a new axis at right-angles to the original house, a narrow, glazed single-storey addition that faced South and West and allowed for a more efficient use of space and corresponded to the constraints of the Lot dimensions. The concept to connect the pool with the living spaces arrived at a large South-facing glazed opening terminating in a framed view to the pool and garden beyond.  The picture frame window also serves as outside/inside window seats.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackThe existing front door to the original house was relocated to create a clear, legible link connecting the front and back of the building. The picture frame extends across this alfresco to enclose the opening, as an extended piece of structure that terminates in the key view to the pool. The kitchen became a linear space separating the old house with the living/ dining areas and opening out into the alfresco entertainment and barbeque area.The exterior and interior of the house was carefully refurbished to reinstate the modernist dwelling, respectfully retaining the integrity of the old house.  The transition between existing and new surfaces was controlled – polished concrete of the addition meets with Jarrah floorboards abutting along a simple steel edge.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackZA call came through from the client after one weekend, advising that they had been on the roof and that there were some fantastic views from this height, including ocean views.  An upper storey was investigated.  The best approach was felt to design new accommodation at 90 degrees to the Ground Floor addition, as this would pick up the blue of the Ocean from above the rooftops.  The approach was to align this pop-up along the edge of the original building so as to minimize structural connections through existing fabric.  This proposal also had the advantage of creating shelter to the alfresco below.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackThe exposure of the site warranted materials that were robust and would require only limited ongoing maintenance over time.  As such the upper storey addition was clad in metal Colorbond metal sheeting, whilst the architectural picture-frame was realized in an oxidized metal paint over Fibre-cement sheet.  All new structural elements were fabricated in steel as this provided the optimum flexibility to work with existing construction and allow straightforward assembly where there was limited site access and no cranage.Save this picture!Section AThe glazing to the picture frame was realized in two pieces of single glazed glass, which performed well thermally due to the south-facing orientation coupled with deep overhangs to the frame.Save this picture!© Douglas Mark BlackProject gallerySee allShow less100 Office / Shimizu CorporationSelected ProjectsLe 205 / Atelier ModernoSelected Projects Share photographs:  Douglas Mark BlackPhotographs:  Douglas Mark Black Perth Custom Build ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/573336/xyz-house-mark-aronson-architecture Clipboard Australia Projects Pritchard Francis, Jaime de Beaux Year:  CopyAbout this officeMark Aronson ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionCity BeachHousesRefurbishmentAustraliaPublished on December 03, 2014Cite: “XYZ House / Mark Aronson Architecture” 03 Dec 2014.

The project contains new student housing at Toneheim Folkehøgskole, meant to replace the existing housing. The student housing is organized around a common yard, a Norwegian traditional typology called “tun”. The new structure is vernacular and exiting, and deeply rooted in the site and history. The new tun is a place where students, teachers and others thrive, both inside and outside. A place where traditions meets modern architecture with a personal expression – con anima!Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreCONCEPTThe idea behind the structure is one simple building block, that is repeated and varied according to the placement on the site and the orientation. Through this principle, the terrain is left mostly as it is, and every building block is given an accessible entrance. Each building block consists of five 2-person bedrooms, a common room with a kitchen and lounge and bathroom facilities. The common rooms and the entrance zones are all oriented towards the common yard. Every student will pass the common room on the way in or out of the house, which ensures good contact between the students. The 2-person rooms put restrictions on how much private space there is, and makes the students interact and tolerate each other.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreThe plan is compact, which makes the buildings efficient regarding space, energy and economy. The bedrooms have a flexible plan and can be furnished in different ways. They can also be used by students in a wheel chair. The storage space in the bed rooms are maximized, with storage space both underneath the bed and in the wall niche above each bed.Save this picture!© Ola SpangenThe stair is integrated in the common room and creates smaller space in the room; a more private place in the open common room. In these small, intimate room the students can read or call their parents. The spaces that the stairs create, establishes connections between private and social spaces, and connections between the inside and the outside. The stair tower is also an important internal and external element regarding the shape of the house, as well as an important element regarding the environment. Sky lights in the stairwell contributes with a generous shower of daylight along the walls.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreLANDSCAPEThe common rooms are all oriented towards the new common yard. To ensure that the big open space is working well, a new in-between zone is introduced. The in-between zones consist of smaller places between the yard and the entrance zones to the different rooms. These smaller spaces are furnished with benches and robust plants, and connects to the walking axes through the area. Natural places to meet and spend time are created in the yard, with different unique qualities and connections to the whole.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreSmall outdoor benches are established in the façade of the buildings, and connect the common rooms inside with the yard. Tactile attention zones and guiding lines are integrated in the walking paths to ensure orientation for the visually impaired.Save this picture!© Ola SpangenThe bedrooms in the houses in the south and the west have an astonishing view towards the rural Stangelandet, and the bedrooms to the northeast have a view towards the church Vang kirke.Save this picture!PlansFruit trees and robust bushes that need little maintenance are preferred in the “tun”, for instance juneberry, that gives flowers in the spring and berries in the autumn. Katsura trees and pines are planted between the student housing and the neighbouring houses, and creates a veil with autumn colours and interesting leaf shapes.To maintain traffic safety, a tactile zone is marked up where the walking paths cross the street between the school entrance and the student housing.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreENVIRONMENT / CLIMATE / ENERGYThe student housing is designed according to the passive house standard. A compact plan and a chained building structure gives smaller facades and thus a limited loss of heat from the building blocks. Windows facing north have been given a very low U-value. Windows facing other directions also have a low U-value, but can also work as sun heat catchers at the time of the day and the year when this is feasible.Save this picture!DiagramThe internal concrete elements contributes to a good indoor climate because of the thermal mass that minimizes natural changes in temperature. The stairwell, also known as the environmental core, is given a huge sky light that brings day light to the core of the building. The sky light has a hatch to send unwanted surplus heat out of the building with natural ventilation. Externally, the stairwell is given a 6 m² sun catcher facing south, for water heating. This could potentially produce enough hot water to serve the student housing, the school building and the canteen. The shape of the stairwell and its openings adapts to the orientation to optimize their use. This roof landscape connects to the tower at Vang kirke to root the buildings in the local context.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreBalanced ventilation with a heat exchanger is installed. Surplus heat can be reused. In periods with a cooling need, the height of the stairwell enables a chimney effect to cool the building.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreCONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALSThe buildings are built in wood and concrete. The concrete constructions are based on element production, to reduce the building time. Massive wood is used in the inner walls, which again reduced the building time but also improves the climate inside. The roof construction in massive wood with external insulation and internal gutters, ensures a compact construction. The external spruce cladding is treated with iron sulfate, which will give the buildings a grey patina with age.Save this picture!© Fredrik MyhreProject gallerySee allShow lessZaferaniye Garden Complex / OlgoocoSelected ProjectsYokohama Tram Port Museum / AbanbaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Hamar, NorwayLocation to be used only as a reference.

Snipers massacre Gazans as Palestinians resist Israeli apartheid

first_imgChicagoMay 15 — Even as the Trump administration celebrated the move of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, Israeli snipers were mercilessly gunning down Palestinian people just 40 miles away in the Gaza strip.The Gaza Health Ministry reports that 62 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators were shot dead by Israeli troops on that one day, and thousands more were wounded. Their crime? Trying to breach the walls that keep 1.8 million Palestinians confined in a tiny, crowded strip of coast along the Mediterranean Sea under the most intolerable conditions.In a cynical twist of the facts, the Trump White House tried to blame the Palestinian resistance group Hamas for the deaths.This was the eighth and deadliest day of weekly protests by the people of Gaza against the theft and occupation of Palestinian land that created the state of Israel and forced them into prison-like confinement. The Great March of Return began on Land Day, March 30 in Palestine. This latest demonstration came one day before the 70th anniversary of the Nakba — the Catastrophe — when in 1948 Zionist troops forced 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and destroyed 400 of their villages. All with the blessings of the Western imperialists, the U.S. and Britain in particular.Among those murdered by Israeli snipers were children and a man in a wheelchair, Fadi Abu Salah, who had lost his legs in 2008 when Israel bombed Gaza. Most were shot by soldiers using internationally banned expanding bullets, but a 5-month-old baby, Leila Ghandour, died from teargas inhalation.Another SharpevilleThis day of heroic struggle by the Palestinian people to break out of the Israeli prison called Gaza will go down in history. In braving the overwhelming terror exercised by the Israeli military, their resistance to oppression stands alongside that of the heroic people of Sharpeville, South Africa, gunned down by apartheid police on March 21, 1960.The racist cops had fired straight into the crowds of African people, killing 69 children, women and men for daring to demonstrate against the settler state’s atrocious pass laws. It was a defining moment in the development of the resistance to apartheid that eventually brought down the racist settler state.The Palestinians risking their lives in Gaza were also protesting the transfer of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This political move by the Trump administration has dashed any hopes that may have been harbored by some for a peaceful settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle.For years, as Israel built up its formidable arsenal of repression in alliance with the Pentagon, various U.S. imperialist administrations dangled the idea of a two-state solution like a carrot before Palestinian organizations and leaders of the Arab countries. Jerusalem was put forward as the likely city to encompass the capitals of both a Zionist and a Palestinian state.This slaughter of unarmed Palestinian protesters, and the simultaneous move of the U.S. Embassy to anoint Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli state, should make it now clearer than ever to the whole world that Israel has always been a project of Western imperialism, not a refuge for Jewish people, as has been claimed for so long.Zionism a cover for another racist settler stateIsrael is a largely European settler state imposed on the Palestinian people who have lived there for generations, just as South Africa was a largely European settler state imposed on Indigenous African people.In 1948, Zionism, the reactionary political movement behind the establishment of Israel, denied the very existence of the Palestinians. They claimed that the European settlers who invaded Palestine were building “a land without a people for a people without a land.” But the resistance of the Palestinians to draconian Israeli rule is proof enough that the people of Palestine existed then, exist now and will continue to fight to take back the land they have lived in and sustainably cultivated for generations.Zionism was given a big boost by the British ruling class in the Balfour Declaration, issued in 1917, which encouraged the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. At that time, few Jewish people supported Zionism. Instead, they struggled against anti-Semitism in Europe as well as in the U.S.That anti-Semitism took on monstrous proportions in Germany with the triumph of fascism. Hitler scapegoated and massacred Jews as well as Slavs, communists, gays and lesbians, and Roma people for the immense hardships that had in reality been caused by the capitalist depression of the 1930s.After Germany’s defeat in 1945, the U.S. as well as Britain, which had controlled Palestine since World War I, conspired to promote it as a haven for the Jewish people who survived the Nazi Holocaust. They armed it against the rising tide of Arab liberation sweeping the area, even to the point where Israel is now the third-largest nuclear power in the world.As these imperialists gave away Palestine, they never consulted the Palestinian people, acting as though they didn’t exist.But the Palestinian people do exist, and they have been courageously fighting for their rights as a nation ever since. This move by the U.S. government and the billionaire ruling class behind it only further exposes their predatory use of Israel as a battering ram against the peoples of the entire Middle East.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Moisture a Real Problem in 2019 Crops

first_img Facebook Twitter Moisture a Real Problem in 2019 CropsAs the Indiana harvest slowly gathers speed, high and variable moisture levels in both corn and soybeans are presenting some serious problems. Moisture levels in both corn and soybeans are not where growers would like them to be as combines begin to roll.“Corn is averaging in the 20% range with only a few reports below that level,” noted Eric Miller, agronomist with Pioneer.As for soybean moisture levels in Central Indiana, they are all over the place. Miller said, “The early planted beans are in the 12% to 14%, but the later planted soybeans are much higher.”Adding to the problem is the extreme variability within fields and even within rows.“In other words, you might go from 16% to 28% in the same pass.”Miller said this is going to cause problems with grain handling and storing. He added that farmers without grain dryers are going to have some real storage problems with these wide moisture levels.Miller told HAT late season ear molds are also showing up in corn, and, “In some of this June corn, the ears are still tilted up and they are taking in a lot of moisture. Spongey cobs are being reported.”More updates from Pioneer next week on HAT.

Guardian and RFI correspondent risks two years in jail

first_img Update: 06.12.2002Andrew Meldrum pleaded not guilty. Then the president of the court adjourned the trial waiting for witnesses from Magunje (230 km of Harare).______________________________________________________________06.11.2002Andrew Meldrum will appear in court on 12 June 2002 as the first journalist to be tried under Zimbabwe’s new press law. Andrew Meldrum, who is correspondent for the British newspapers The Guardian and The Economist and for Radio France International (RFI), is charged with “abuse of journalistic privileges by publishing falsehoods” and risks two years imprisonment if convicted.”We call on the judiciary to show their independence of the government and to do all they can to see that the charges against him are dropped,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “He was simply doing his job and nothing can justify his imprisonment for this.””Usually when journalists are arrested in Zimbabwe, they are freed on bail almost immediately, after which the case drags on for years and very rarely comes to anything,” he said. “In this instance, the government seems to have decided to fast-track the case and apply this very repressive law.”Andrew Meldrum quoted in The Guardian an item from the Zimbabwean paper Daily News that said militants of the ruling ZANU-PF party beheaded a woman in a village in northwestern Zimbabwe. A few days later, the Daily News said there was no proof this had happened and apologised to the ZANU-PF. Two of the paper’s reporters, Lloyd Mudiwa and Collin Chiwanza, were arrested on 30 April. The next day, Andrew Meldrum was picked up as well. All three were freed on bail on 2 May. Reporters Without Borders notes that since the press law (the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act) came into force on 15 March, 11 journalists have been charged with 21 charges.
