Top 14: Expat half-term report

first_imgJust up the road at Bayonne, Mike Phillips has patched things up with Bayonne after he was suspended in September for various misdemeanours. The Wales scrum-half has looked sharp of late, putting in a man-of-the-match performance in the win over Mont-de-Marsan just before Christmas and showing all the signs that he intends to regain the Lions shirt he wore so well in South Africa four years ago.Finally, Lee Byrne could be back as early as the middle of the month despite cracking a bone in his fifth vertebra in Clermont’s win against Leinster in last month’s Heineken Cup victory. Initially it was feared that Byrne, who’s been in exceptional form for Clermont this season, could be out for several months but the latest bulletin suggested the 32-year-old full-back might be fit for the visit of Exeter on January 12. Bouncing back: Despite cracking a bone in his vertebra, Lee Byrne is recovering well and may be back in two weeksBy Gavin MortimerJONNY WILKINSON brought down the curtain on 2012 in fine style, signing off with a 26-point haul as Toulon crushed Perpignan 46-13 and consolidated their position as the Top 14’s dominant side in the first half of the season. Toulon have won 12 of their 14 matches, giving them a seven point lead at the top of the table over Clermont with reigning champions Toulouse lying third a further three points adrift.It’s been an impressive few months for Wilkinson, who’s scored 206 points in his 12 Top 14 appearances, keeping France fly-half Frederic Michalak out of the Toulon starting line-up and attracting the attention of Lions coach Warren Gatland ahead of the summer tour to Australia.But elsewhere how have the British exiles been faring in the first half of the notoriously long Top 14 season?Wilkinson’s former England teammate, Andrew Sheridan, has been playing as well as at any time in the last ten years. Like Wilkinson, the former Sale prop seems to be benefiting from the Cote d’Azur climate and the niggling injuries that so disrupted his career in the Aviva Premiership have disappeared. Against Perpignan on Sunday, Sheridan inflicted serious damage on the opposition scrum while also carrying well in the loose. Another who must be in contention for a spot on the Lions tour.Fine form: Sheridan is having a cracking season in FranceThe Armitage brothers, Steffon and Delon, have helped themselves to seven tries so far this season, while Simon Shaw continues to a cock a snook at Old Father Time, relegating Nick Kennedy (eight years his junior) to the bench.The one Brit to struggle at Toulon is Gethin Jenkins. Unable to dislodge Sheridan and Carl Hayman from the first-choice XV, the Wales and Lions prop has made just one start this season in the Top 14 and if the rumours are to be believed he’s heading home at the end of the season. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS At Perpignan, James Hook has been the pick of the expat bunch. The fly-half has scored 172 points so far this season, a total that would have been more had he not been forced off in the first-half against Toulon on Sunday with a knock to the shoulder. Hook’s international teammate, lock Luke Charteris, had settled in well in his first season at the Catalan club, but his season is now over after he ruptured knee ligaments in the win over Montpellier last month. In the Perpignan back-row Englishman Luke Narraway and Alasdair Strokosch have both adapted well to their new environment with the Scottish flanker in particular relishing the combative nature of French rugby.Just up the coast from Perpignan in Montpellier, former Scotland No8 Johnnie Beattie has at last managed to string a series of games together. The 27-year-old’s career has been bedevilled by injuries in recent seasons, and a back problem sidelined him for the first two months of the season. But the Scot has been an ever present for Montpellier since the start of November and coach Mario Ledesma was singing his praises in the pages of Midi Olympique after the 54-16 hammering of Stade Francais at the weekend.Former England centre Shontayne Hape has been less conspicuous than Beattie in the Montpellier side and injury has limited his appearances in the last two months to just three starts.Welsh flier Aled Brew has had a curious initiation to the Top 14 since arriving at Biarritz in the summer. The former Dragons’ wing has appeared in all 14 of the Basque side’s matches yet he’s still to score his first try. Despite his lack of points, Brew’s been playing well and his work rate and assists have endeared him to Biarritz’s passionate supporters. Toulon’s prop Andrew Sheridan (C) runs with the ball during the French Top 14 rugby union match RC Toulon vs. Castres at the Mayol stadium on September 22, 2012 in Toulon, southern France. Toulon won 33-12. AFP PHOTO/GERARD JULIEN (Photo credit should read GERARD JULIEN/AFP/GettyImages) last_img read more

Photo:[Religion News Service — Canterbury, England] Two bishops — one Anglican, the other Roman Catholic — condemned a British government billboard and stop-and-search campaign aimed at picking up illegal immigrants and deporting them.Bishop Nick Baines, the Anglican leader of Bradford in northern England, derided the Ministry of Home Affairs’ controversial “go home” bus and van campaign and described it as divisive and ineffective.Bishop Patrick Lynch, one of the Roman Catholic Church’s authorities on immigration, said the government’s billboard campaign targeting illegal immigrants in several London boroughs left the impression all immigrants and foreigners are unwelcome in England.Earlier this month, bus and van ads appeared across London with the slogan: “Go home or face arrest.” The Ministry of Home Affairs paid for the ads.A summer immigration crackdown has included spot identity checks and regular Ministry of Home Affairs updates on Twitter detailing the number of people arrested.“These cases need to be dealt with compassionately, especially when there are children involved,” Lynch told The Catholic Herald.Sarah Teather, a Catholic member of Parliament, suggested the announcements are designed to make the government look tough on immigration.With unemployment hovering at 7.8 percent, some Parliament members and human rights workers say the government’s campaign could stoke ethnic tensions.Prime Minister David Cameron has made curbing illegal immigration a priority but faces calls to reassess the way government is measuring it. A recent report by a gqovernment watchdog committee said the current system was “ little better than a best guess.”There are an estimated 570,000 illegal immigrants in Britain, many from Africa but also from eastern Europe.

The house is designed as an addition for possible existing house of the same series already on the plot, to be a garden sauna, guesthouse or shed. Or it can be independent development – a summer cottage with sauna; a guesthouse, beach house. It has two versions for functional layout – one with larger sauna and other with main bedroom instead sauna.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architect 11Design of this model is part of larger concept and is intended to match with larger houses in same series. The whole model range at the moment is about 10 different layouts and sizes, starting from 40 sqm sauna and ending with 500 sqm villa. This number will grow as there will be more variety that needs to be covered.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architect 11Design of the series has grown out from a concept to mix a prefab structural insulated envelope with on-site reinforced concrete. During developement we decided to go for faster installation times on site – the intention is to minimize the time and works on plot. This approach allows to have lesser impact for nature, most of the works can be done in controlled environment regardless of weather conditions, installers have to spend less time on farther locations and factory environment allows some level of automated or parallel tasks to be fulfilled that are not possible by building it on site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architect 11This series will enter into fierce and competitive prefab market. It is designed to fulfill the energy consuption requirements in nordic countries, even snow load requirements up to 3 kN. Houses are equipped with high standard ventilation systems, full automation and management systems, they are designed to utilize a solar heating during spring and autumn, have shelter from sun during summer months, thus not requiring a cooling system. Used building materials are in most parts wood, walls are vapour permeable and facades are ventilated. Structural frame is made of glulam, walls have rockwool insulation, internal walls are made of cross-laminated-timber panels, windows are wood-aluminium and furmiture is either painted or laminated MDF boards.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architect 11The design concept is intended to have more similarities with stone or concrete house than traditional wooden house. From original reinforced concrete design we maintained this simple form and ideology – the internal insulated structure has few tasks – keep warm and be able to support itself. Outer exosceleton would withstand all forces – wind, snow, rain – give shelter against sun and so forth. Same idea has been developed also in here – the outer form – stone-clad facade and cantilevered roof on top of the terrace – will act like protective shell for softer and warmer interior. The resulting form is one design element that is defining the architectural language for the whole series. With this approach most of different house models can be combined with each other, put up in groups or have expansions like this small sauna house.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessNorman Foster Resigns from Moscow’s Pushkin Museum ExpansionArchitecture NewsUrban Fragment: Jose Oubrerie’s Miller HouseArticles Share “COPY” Copy• Architects: Arhitekt 11 Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Houses “COPY”last_img read more

The Hamptons enjoys a storied past. Unique daylight and compelling landscapes have drawn artists to this part of Long Island’s South Fork for the last century and a half, and their work here includes an important body of modernist fine art and architecture. Yet more recently, the Hamptons’ allure has outsized its capacity—sprouting insensitive residential development, snarled traffic, and a national reputation for showing off. When a longtime Mapos client asked us to consider creating a multi-generational family retreat overlooking the Peconic Bay, we initiated dialogue about preserving the Hamptons’ historic character while accommodating the scale and refinement of 21st-century living. Save this picture!© Michael MoranPrior to assigning this commission to Mapos, the husband and wife had purchased five acres of bluff top, in which the Peconic Bay and old-growth forest sandwich a sliver of meadow. In that time, they had also become deeply enthralled by the property’s existing trees and fauna, particularly a 70 foot tall sycamore standing near the center of the meadow. Emboldened by our vision of reasserting the Hamptons’ creative and environmental legacies, the couple requested a compound that leaves as little imprint on the site as possible.Save this picture!© Michael MoranSave this picture!Main floor planSave this picture!© Michael MoranThe Peconic House is comprised of a 4,000-square-foot building and 2,000-square-foot terrace. Gently wedged into a hillock just north of the great sycamore and featuring low-slung proportions, the residence is designed to preserve the tree’s sun exposure and original views to Peconic Bay. Its roof is planted with native meadow grasses to camouflage human intervention, and to minimize the project’s impact on the watershed.Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe 200-foot terrace steps down the hillock in parallel to the residence, culminating in a 75-foot infinity-edge lap pool that extends to the west. Together, the house and terrace form positive and negative volumes, whose palette of concrete, cedar, reclaimed ipe wood, and Corten steel soften the overall linearity and evoke local vegetation and coastline. These unfinished materials are slowly developing a natural patina, and their color will ultimately blend into and become part of the landscape.Save this picture!© Michael MoranBecause the clients expressed a lifelong interest in Richard Serra and Andy Goldsworthy, the unfolding sequence with which one encounters these modern artists’ installations inspired our strategy for approaching the residence. Approaching guests follow a meandering stone wall through the woods and meadow of the site, eventually leading to a crisp line of Corten steel piercing the meadow; moving toward that image ultimately reveals the main residence, and conveys the visitor to its threshold.Save this picture!© Michael MoranOpening to a stepped living room that frames an east–west panorama of the Peconic Bay, the residence’s entrance was conceived as a startling experience—as if one has emerged from the forest. The interior further abstracts the bluff-top landscape, with unfinished cedar and reclaimed white oak following the site’s topography and crossing to the terrace via 100-foot-long glass wall. Every design decision supports this blurring of built environment and nature: the green roof promotes biodiversity while its cantilevers provide daylight harvesting in the morning and shade in the afternoon, and articulation of the east elevation creates a prow-like bay window for the master bedroom. The interiors’ abstraction and literalness play off one another, and intimate an overall sustainability strategy that makes this project as sympathetic to the environment, performance-wise, as it is visually.Save this picture!© Michael MoranProject gallerySee allShow lessSOM Breaks Ground on Block 9 in Downtown FargoArchitecture NewsUNStudio Shares Vision for Tessellated Hyperloop StationArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

New Tajik legislation hampers coronavirus coverage

first_img Journalist loses accreditation over report about Tajikistan’s president May 14, 2021 Find out more November 6, 2020 Find out more Credit: Rjruiziii / CC BY-SA Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the withdrawal of newly approved legislative amendments in Tajikistan under which false or inaccurate Covid-19 coverage would be subject to heavy fines. This could lead to censorship and other abuses, RSF warns.Under the amendments to the Administrative Code voted by the Tajik parliament on 10 June, anyone providing  “false” or “inaccurate” information about Covid-19 in the media or on social media could be fined up to 1,160 somoni (995 euros) – nearly twice the minimum monthly wage.“This new, vaguely defined legislation could be exploited to violate the right to information,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Under international law, nothing ever justifies giving a public authority the power to decide what is true or false, or – without reference to a judge – to restrict the right of a person or media to freedom of expression on the grounds that what they say might be false or inaccurate. We call for the withdrawal of these amendments, which violate freedom of the press and expression.”One of first targets of these amendments could be, a website founded by civil society representatives that is keeping a tally of the number of Covid-19 deaths in Tajikistan, a tally verified by journalists based abroad. Its latest tally is 430, as against the official figure of 49. The site has been blocked within Tajikistan since 11 May.Despite a surge in the number of pneumonia deaths, the authorities denied that the epidemic had reached Tajikistan until 30 April, 24 hours before a visit by a delegation from the World Health Organization. After just one month of lockdown, as against that the three that are usual in better equipped countries, the authorities now say the epidemic is under control and are preparing to loosen it.RSF recommends that the Tajik authorities should combat disinformation by means of self-regulatory mechanisms that promote the best journalists standards and ethics, such as the Journalism Trust Initiative. Launched by RSF and its partners, the JTI is a set of standards for reliable, trustworthy journalism with indicators that allow individual media outlets to assess themselves, to improve their practices to satisfy the standards, and to publish their evaluation results. The standards covered range from transparency of media ownership and revenue sources to correction procedures and other good practices.Tajikistan is ranked 161st out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

CIF sets out plan to save jobs

first_imgAdvertisement A RECOVERY plan put forward by construction employers to save jobs, generate increased government revenues and kick start economic recovery has been backed by The Mid West Branch of the Construction Industry Federation.The CIF recently held an emergency meeting that brought together all of the major construction employers, including the major material suppliers, representatives of the architectural, engineering and surveying professions, major contractors and house builders.Conor O’Connell from the CIF Mid West Branch outlined the key issues contained in the recovery plan drawn up by the CIF. According to Conor O’Connell, “infrastructure spending is the key to saving jobs, increasing exchequer revenues and providing a platform for economic recovery for the Mid West region.”    “In the Mid West, construction currently employs in the region of 15,000 people directly, which is down by almost 10,000 people in two years. This does not include the thousands of people who are employed indirectly.  The sector in the Mid West also supports thousands of induced jobs in the shops, restaurants etc. where construction workers spend their wages.”  “It was agreed as part of the recovery plan that urgent action is needed within the next month to protect these existing jobs. The prospect of thousands of job losses in construction throughout the Mid West and the entire country is real unless the pipeline of projects increases.”“One of the major fears for construction employers in the Mid West relates to infrastructure spending and the possibility of further cuts in labour intensive projects arising from the upcoming budgetary measures. It is the view of the Mid West Branch that this would be the entirely wrong thing to do from the economy’s perspective resulting in increased social welfare costs and undoing any savings from upcoming budgetary measures.”“As it is, 75% of infrastructure spending is already committed to ongoing or contracted projects and even a minor cut in spending would mean that virtually no new projects will start over the coming months.  In addition, spending on the pre-tender design, engineering and surveying has been significantly cut meaning a reduction in ready to go projects over the coming 12 months.”Mr O’Connell said, “Now is the time for the Government to take advantage of the competitive tendering environment and to place an emphasis on labour intensity and projects that are vital for the local economy in the long term.”“The payback to the state will be immediate. Research shows that every €100m spent on construction projects creates 1,000 jobs and generates nearly €50m for the exchequer through income, taxes and social welfare savings. Infrastructure improvements also ensure the future tax income of the economy by improving competitiveness and attracting inward investment.” Linkedin WhatsApp Twitter Printcenter_img Previous articleDell to cut 100 more jobs in LimerickNext articleMan seriously injured in shooting admin Email NewsLocal NewsCIF sets out plan to save jobsBy admin – March 21, 2009 687 Facebooklast_img read more

Statement of UL Hospitals Group on Cyber Attack

first_imgLONG delays are expected for patients attending services across UL Hospitals Group this Friday as a result of a serious ransomware attack on HSE IT systems.Emergency services across our hospitals continue to operate today. Patients with an outpatient appointment or a scheduled procedure across our six hospitals are advised to attend for their appointments/procedures unless they are directly contacted by the hospital and advised otherwise.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The HSE nationally has taken the precaution of shutting down all our IT systems in order to protect them from this attack and to allow us fully assess the situation with our own security partners. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to patients and to the public and will give further information as it becomes available. We are appealing to members of the public to bear with us as we switch to manual back-up systems.Emergency services and unscheduled care continue to operate across our sites. This includes our Emergency Department at UHL, Injury Units and Ennis, Nenagh and St John’s hospitals and the Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit/Maternity Emergency Unit at University Maternity Hospital Limerick. However, we are appealing to members of the public to attend the ED only in the case of an emergency.In implementing our contingency plans, we are largely operating manual back-up systems. Patients attending our services today can expect delays until such time as patient information, diagnostic reporting and other affected IT systems are secure and operational. Patients attending for scheduled care (outpatient clinics and elective surgery) are advised to attend as scheduled (unless contacted directly by us and advised otherwise) but also to expect delays.There is a range of alternatives to the Emergency Department available in the Mid-West that are appropriate for less serious illnesses, including family doctors, out-of-hours GP services, and local pharmacies.The Injury Units at Ennis and Nenagh Hospitals (8am-8pm daily), and St John’s Hospital (8am-7pm, daily) are an excellent option for treatment of broken bones, dislocations, sprains, strains, wounds, scalds and minor burns.
