Six Nations Wales v England PreviewEngland’s cricketers may have struggled for half-centuries, let alone centuries, in the day-night Test against India, but major milestones will be hit by players on both teams in this Six Nations match at the Principality Stadium on Saturday.George North, 28, is set to make his 100th Test appearance for Wales – the youngest player to reach the milestone for his country – while Elliot Daly is in line to win his 50th cap for England. TAGS: Highlight An intriguing tussle is set to play out at the Principality Stadium this weekend Robson [email protected]_jrobson with the big miss pass to set up @elliotdaly for England’s sixth try— England Rugby (@EnglandRugby) February 13, 2021It’s one of the less experienced players on the pitch who could get the most attention, though, at least from England’s kickers. They are expected to try to put pressure on 20-year-old Wales wing Louis Rees-Zammit with high balls – maybe a few spirals from George Ford – but he does have expert ‘bomb defuser’ Liam Williams to assist.Plus, if England’s kicking game lacks accuracy and the chase lacks intensity – as it has quite often in recent months – they could simply be presenting a dangerous Wales back three with the opportunity to counter. Although, the prospect of seeing a footrace between Rees-Zammit and Jonny May is certainly one to get excited about. “Jonathan brings a wealth of experience and we look at him as a 12, not as a 13. The last time he played for us was at 12 against Italy and I thought he did a good job in attack and defence on that day.“Foxy (Davies) is looking very good from our point of view and when he pulls that Welsh jersey on, he never lets the team down.”Jonathan Davies and George North are teaming up in midfield (Inpho)England head coach Eddie Jones: “Wales is a really special fixture and rivalry. There is a long history between the two nations and the game means a lot to both countries.“We know we’ll be up against a strong Welsh challenge on Saturday, but we’ve got a very good team to face it. We want to show people what we are capable of, keep building our performances and the best is yet to come from this England team.”What are the odds?Wales may be higher in the table but England are the favourites for this match, with odds of 5-12 on Bet365. A Wales win is 11-5 or you can get odds of 22-1 on a draw.If you fancy putting some money on the fixture, Bet365 have a welcome bonus of up to £100 in Bet Credits.Min deposit £5.

Time limits and T&Cs apply.Over-18s only. BeGambleAware.Any interesting statistics?If Wales win, they will win the Triple Crown for the 22nd time – only England have won it more (26).Wales have won only one of their last seven matches against England in the Six Nations – but games have been tight, with single-figure winning margins in the last six.England have never conceded more than two tries in a Six Nations game in Wales – the only team to do so.Wales have made the fewest handling errors in the 2021 championship so far (22) while England have made the most (35).These two sides top this year’s charts for maul metres made, England with 44 and Wales with 43.center_img Who’s faster, Wales’ Louis Rees-Zammit or England’s Jonny May?It’s going to be some showdown between the flying wingers!— BBC Sport Wales (@BBCSportWales) February 22, 2021Eddie Jones’s selection of six forwards on the bench would suggest he hopes his team can dominate Wales physically in the tight exchanges. Wales’ set-piece has improved since the autumn but there are definitely still chinks England will be looking to expose, particularly at lineout time where the hosts have the worst success rate (81%) of any team in this year’s championship.Many point to the fact Wales’ opponents were reduced to 14 men in their previous two wins and while they were far from convincing in those victories against Ireland and Scotland, they did show dogged determination (as well as the odd spark of magic from Rees-Zammit).That steely mentality tends to keep Wales in the fight. Take last year against England – they looked out of it at 33-16 but came back to narrow the gap to 33-30 at Twickenham (there was a red card in that match too!).Even without the cacophony of noise generated by a capacity Cardiff crowd, intensity levels will rise for this one and it should be tight. It’s Wales v England after all.Related: Eight great England v Wales matchesWhat’s the big team news?Wales have named a different player at scrum-half for the third match running, with Kieran Hardy in the No 9 shirt, while George North and Jonathan Davies will combine in midfield after returning from injury.Josh Adams is back following his suspension for breaching Covid-19 rules and Liam Williams shifts from wing to full-back.Up front, Wayne Pivac has made one change with fit-again Josh Navidi starting at blindside instead of Aaron Wainwright.Despite his side being widely criticised for their performances in the opening two rounds, Eddie Jones has made just two changes to the England team that beat Italy.Jamie George will start at hooker for England (Getty Images)Jamie George regains his starting spot at hooker with Luke Cowan-Dickie dropping to the bench and Mark Wilson is back at blindside after Courtney Lawes picked up an injury in training, but the back-line remains the same.Jones has again gone for a six-two split between forwards and backs on the bench, with Leicester back-row George Martin in line to win his first cap.What have the coaches said?Wales head coach Wayne Pivac on the centre pairing: “George brings a lot of excitement to the position. He’s got that outside break, he’s big and strong, he can do the donkey work in the middle of the park if he needs to.

House Equanimity / Joseph N. Biondo, Architect

first_img “COPY” Projects Architects: Joseph N. Biondo, Architect Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Steve WolfeText description provided by the architects. Situated in a typical nondescript subdivision of Eastern Pennsylvania, this home is surrounded by other single-family houses of all shapes and sizes, redolent with clichés and conventions which can be just as easily elsewhere as here. For that reason it is the surrounding landscape and history of the region that largely determines the design. The primary building materials, site poured concrete and various concrete products, pay respect to the history of Northampton – the birthplace of American Portland Cement.Save this picture!© Steve WolfePermanently embedded into the landscape of Northampton and now standing proudly in ruin, are the industrial artifacts which record the history of cement making. Kilns which were used to melt the rock quarried here, developed over time. The initial Dome kilns were inefficient and gave way to the Schoefer kilns which could operate continuously. Within a decade, the Schoefer kilns were replaced with rotary kilns whose technology remains in existence. Today’s modern cement plant stands as a strong form consisting of framed boxes perched atop a series of concrete monoliths which loom in the partially monotonous and chaotic surroundings that are suburbia. These industrial machines, along with the material they produce, greatly influence the design of this home.Save this picture!© Steve WolfeThe house is not a solitary cube that might have been sited anywhere, but one which penetrates into the landscape and becomes one with it. This single-family, three bedroom home deviates in scale and appearance from the neighboring houses. In fact it seems closer in spirit to the forest and topography it nestles within. The main living area, whose face is half buried into the landscape, offers no views to the east except that of its walled courtyard. It is to be a peaceful place, a kind of oasis sheltered from sound and views of the subdivision thus creating an outdoor room that opens to the sky. The interior space is open, intimate, and neutral with domestic objects articulated as furnishings placed within. Hues of blue skin echo the mottled limestone quarried here. Save this picture!© Steve WolfeThe base of the home is constructed of concrete. This seemingly unnatural mixture of fluid stone and steel reinforcement is quite sufficiently different from historical materials. However, it is a material that offers the rough, tactile charm that often emanate from the irregularities of mature buildings. Deliberately crude in its execution, the concrete monolith is treated as an existing condition, or ruin, whose subsequent wood-framed, cementitious clad boxes are carefully inserted. The ruin’s powerful presence is derived from its material qualities and from the way it is linked to the ground. It penetrates into the earth and engages a platform which becomes clearly defined as the topography falls away. Save this picture!© Steve WolfeThe planted concrete ruin looks as though it is going to be in the location it has found for itself for a long time. Unlike its surrounding production housing counterparts, it is not even thinking of moving away from the place it occupies and defines by its very existence. The concrete is allowed to age, become rough and perhaps slowly erode. The intangible dimension of time could then be recorded by the traces left on the walls. Eventually, gravel will be exposed and particles of dirt, algae, and moss will take hold. Save this picture!© Steve WolfeThis home is an architecture that involves all the senses. The surfaces and details demand to be felt. The spaces and special sequences require to be grasped by the senses that apprehend gravity, driving forces, and temperature. Details involving human contact such as entrance areas, steps, handles and hand rails are treated with particular care. The restricted tolerances of construction elegantly contrasts with the random nature of the organic while the massing, textures, and unevenness of weathering surfaces transmit similar sensations to the landscape.Save this picture!first floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessRising Currents at MoMAArticlesFour Salvaged Boxes: [email protected] Share House Equanimity / Joseph N.

Shaped by the region’s riverine landscape, the undulating site is approached from the north and included a plateau- 15M from the water level- towards its western edge. From here, the site sloped down eastwards as one approached the river’s edge. All constructional decisions were made to preserve the original land form and ecology of the site with limited interference.Save this picture!© Rahul ZotaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Rahul ZotaSiting – Principal built masses – the house, swimming pool and water tower – are located around the highest plateau. Leaving it free for outdoor activity, the house’s rectangular mass is pushed back and placed horizontally, with its longer side facing the river. Across the valley, the swimming pool is carved into the adjoining earth-mound along its slope. Further south, the masonry water tower rises from the highest point of the opposite hill.Save this picture!© Rahul ZotaAs linear blocks, the house, pool and water tower are oriented along different coordinate axes to engage three-dimensionally with the site. In each, different floors and landings are worked out to be accessible from varying levels of the landscape. Collectively, the built form belongs to the natural setting by such sculptural engagement- opening through disposition and movement new ways of experiencing the exterior space and unravelling its majesty.Save this picture!© Rahul ZotaSave this picture!Concept DiagramSave this picture!© Rahul ZotaOrganization & Spatial relationships – A thick retaining wall courses zigzag along the plateau’s edge to stabilize the building on its slope. It forms compact, room-like spaces which accommodate services- kitchen, dining, wash-yard, toilets, storage, etc. In contrast, a large columned hall, covered from top by a hyperbolic paraboloid, exposed RCC roof, is developed towards the river facing edge. This continuous, loggia like space across different levels supports living, sleeping, etc. The work’s key organizational move involves developing these entities- the room and pavilion- through a dialectic play between opposing conditions of hillside v/s riverside view, sunset v/s moonrise, service v/s served space, etc.Save this picture!© Rahul ZotaSection develops by scooping out a rectangular void at the plateau’s edge. The dialogue with landform commences through this inceptive act of the imminent built-form making an imprint into the topography. Into this, floors, walls & columns are introduced to form the core of the house. Finally, the hyperbolic paraboloid roof is modulated to follow the natural gradient of the ground below. Mirroring the landscape, it reintroduces the original shape of the hill- lost initially to construction- to envelop the entire house from above and characterize its spatial experience.Save this picture!© Rahul ZotaSave this picture!East ElevationStructure, Construction & Materials – The project uses a composite structural system. The RCC roof is cast manually, using pinewood shuttering. Teakwood and glass panels are used to make door and windows. In places, they are carefully thickened to integrate furniture into them and become inhabitable zones. Elsewhere, they are made much thinner to wrap around the structure and maximize the view. Exterior stone cladding extends till the basement, eliminating the need for visible plinth protection. It expresses limits of building’s intervention into the landscape, allowing it to be perceived as literally growing out of the ground.Save this picture!© Rahul ZotaProject gallerySee allShow lessJätkäsaari Comprehensive School / AOR ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPerpetual Spring Pavilion / OBRA ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Khushboo Vyas, Smit Vyas Landscape Design: Manufacturers: Duro, Kohler, Legrand, Saint-Gobain, Amulya WPC, Asian Paints, Balaji Granites, EPPW, Enox, Havells, NITCO TILES, Options, Philips, TATA Architects: Studio 4000 Area Area of this architecture project India Lead Architects: Weekend House at Aalloa / Studio 4000Save this projectSaveWeekend House at Aalloa / Studio 4000 Projects Apurva Parikh “COPY” Ganpat bhai Panchal Weekend House at Aalloa / Studio 4000 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeStudio 4000OfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAhmedabadOn FacebookMubarakpurIndiaPublished on February 17, 2021Cite: “Weekend House at Aalloa / Studio 4000” 16 Feb 2021.

Era of Grand Drive Drug Testing Begins

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Era of Grand Drive Drug Testing Begins Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 By Andy Eubank – Aug 12, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Poe on drug testingMonday night during the selection of the Indiana State Fair livestock grand champions, the Indiana 4-H program’s changes on drug testing were in plain view inside the coliseum. Hoosier Ag Today spoke with fair board president Stan Poe immediately following the event about the testing being done right after each species exited the Grand Drive ring.“We’re going to test it and if you test positive you’re out,” he said. “Here at the Indiana State Fair we’re testing tonight (Monday) and we will have those results before the 23rd of August when we have our celebration award program. Anyone who tests positive through this show tonight will not be in that show.”He said it is sad that measures like this must be taken, but Poe thinks it is an important step for Indiana.“Those of us who serve on national animal health committees and places like that have made it a point that this must be cleaned up. The FDA and companies do a super job in getting products approved and we have label directions on every compound that comes out and is used in this country. But then we get into shows and some people really like to win and they start messing with this feed tags and that’s where we get in trouble.”Now the hope is simply that emotions for winning 4-H’ers aren’t over an ultimate disqualification, but rather the highs and lows of winning on Grand Drive night then saying goodbye to their animal.“It suddenly becomes a reality to some of these exhibitors that have worked a year, particularly all summer on a daily basis with these animals, whoa! This project is now complete.”There were a lot of comments from judges and others Monday night about the quality of the livestock shows. Poe agreed.“The quality of livestock here in Indiana and at the Indiana State Fair is top notch. These animals and these exhibitors can move on through here and go on to the national shows and place well, so we’re really proud of our industry in Indiana.”He told HAT the fair is off to a very good start other than some issues with rain, but he hopes that’s out of the way and it’s clear sailing ahead for Indiana State Fair visitors.

RSF deplores media crackdown in Turkey as Cumhuriyet chairman is arrested

first_img News Help by sharing this information Organisation News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the arrest today of Akın Atalay, board chairman of the Turkish opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet, at Istanbul airport on his return from Germany. His lawyer, Bahri Bayram Belen, told journalists: “We don’t know how long he will remain in police custody. It is possible he may be imprisoned (after they have finished questioning him) because we are witnessing a political operation against the newspaper, with no basis in law.” RSF editor-in-chief Virginie Dangles said: “This unprecedented wave of arrests of journalists and media workers based on absurd allegations cannot go on. The international community must do everything in its power to make the Turkish government understand that this headlong crackdown will not be without consequences.” Nine Cumhuriyet journalists and other employees were detained on 5 November as part of an investigation into alleged links to terrorist organizations, namely the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Gülen movement.Arrest warrants were issued for Atalay and Can Dündar, Cumhuriyet’s former editor-in-chief who is now in exile. The newspaper was awarded the 2015 RSF-TV5 Monde Press Freedom Prize in the media category.In another anti-terrorism investigation, against the Kurdish newspaper Özgür Gündem, the public prosecutor yesterday demanded life imprisonment for novelist and columnist Aslı Erdoğan and nine other employees of the paper. They were arrested when the newspaper was closed by the police in August and accused of membership of a terrorist organization, carrying out terrorist propaganda and undermining national unity. The court has two weeks to approve the indictment. RSF reiterates its call to sign the petition in support of Asli Erdoğan’s release. Already ranked 151st of 180 countries in the 2016 World Press Freedom Index, Turkey has been sinking deeper into unprecedented repression since the coup attempt on 15 July. The authorities are using the state of emergency to stifle any criticism. News organizations are being closed down and press accreditations and passports withdrawn, and more than 100 journalists are now behind bars.

Denial of justice continues for journalist on hunger strike

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Iran Help by sharing this information Organisation IranMiddle East – North Africa With no sign of improvement in the health of hunger-striking journalist Akbar Ganji since his transfer to hospital, Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the behaviour of the judicial authorities in his case and held them responsible for his slow drift towards death.”Ganji has been on hunger strike for 44 days and has lost two more kilos since his transfer to hospital on 17 July,” the press freedom organisation said. “We are also very worried by Tehran state prosecutor Said Mortazavi’s insistence that he undergo an operation requiring a general anaesthetic as the general medical view is that his state of health does not allow this.”Reached by telephone, Ganji’s wife told Reporters Without Borders she has written to the head of the Iranian judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahrudi, requesting Mortazavi’s removal from the case, the appointment of someone to prepare a detailed report on his state of health, and permission for him to be visited by three negotiators, who are his friends, to let them try to persuade him to accept treatment. She ended the letter by saying she held Shahrudi fully responsible for her husband’s case.Ganji’s lawyer, 2003 Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi, who has not been allowed to visit her client, told Agence France-Presse (AFP) she has “serious concerns” about his state of health.In a letter posted on several Iranian websites on the day of his transfer to Milad hospital in northern Tehran on 17 July, Ganji said he had been threatened by Mortazavi, who told he was being taken to hospital “to put an end to the international pressure” and so that no one would be able to blame his death on the judicial authorities.———————————————————–22.07.05 Iran Lack of transparency, denial of justice in hospitalisation of Akbar GanjiReporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the lack of transparency and denial of justice surrounding the hospitalisation of imprisoned journalist Akbar Ganji, who has been on hunger strike for 38 days, and the organisation reiterated its call for his immediate release.Ganji’s family has also protested about the circumstances of his hospitalisation in an open letter to the head of the Iranian judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahrudi, accusing Tehran prosecutor Said Mortazavi of failing to cooperate with the family and condemning the refusal to allow Ganji’s lawyers to visit him. Ganji was taken on 17 July to Milad hospital in Tehran, where he has been isolated on the hospital’s 12th floor. The ban on visits by his lawyers violates Iranian law.Voicing concern about his condition, Reporters Without Borders called on the director of Milad hospital to issue a daily bulletin on his state of health.The press freedom organisation added: “We call on the daily newspaper Kayhan, headed by Hossin Shariatmadry, to stop spreading rumours accusing the reformists of paving the way for Ganji’s death with the aim of blaming it on the Iranian regime.”According to judicial officials, Ganji was hospitalised for a knee operation. It has also been reported that he has called off his hunger strike.Ganji was sentenced to six years in prison in 2001 for an article linking senior regime officials to a series of murders of writers and intellectuals. He has been held in Evin prison, where he began his hunger strike on 10 June. He has lost 22 kg since he stopped eating.Calls for his release have been made by US President George Bush, the European Union and many international human rights organisations.
