Six Nations: The Beleaguered Coaches Club

first_img Two coaches, one worry: Philippe Saint-Andre and Scott Johnson have copped a lot of criticism this Six NationsBy Alan DymockWhatever is said in haste before Saturday – whatever defensive line is thrown out or snarling reply comes back – it is only because both Scotland’s and France’s head coaches are under so much pressure.There are big differences between Philippe Saint-Andre’s side and Scott Johnson’s Scotland. One started the Six Nations well, winning a tight game against England without playing magnificently, but has deteriorated to the stage where they looked bewildered more than a little overawed against Wales. The other was spanked in their first two games but got the salving win their egos needed, away to Italy. However, a loss for either side heaps unbelievable pressure on the man in charge of the failures.He’s back: Brown returns for ScotlandWell, technically that is not true. It is the manner of loss that would be important for Johnson should they fall, while any loss would see albatrosses circling Saint-Andre’s head.See, while Johnson has been facing questions about why now is the time to re-select captain Kelly Brown and chuck out another totally different back-row combo, he has answered that he has assessed France’s strengths. “He (Brown) is a better fit for this team, this game,” Johnson informed the inquisitors. <> at Millenium Stadium on February 21, 2014 in Cardiff, Wales. Johnson has picked a team that he hopes will be able to slam into French mauls without wilting; guys he knows are fully fit and who are strong, or who Johnson perceives to be wise to French tricks. Brown and David Denton are strong, Johnnie Beattie is in form and plays in France. Richie Gray and Jim Hamilton are big boys who play in France. There’s not much he can do with his backs.The coach may well have flirted with bringing Ross Ford back in for his bulk, but he has learnt one thing, if only because it was getting screamed at him every game: the Scottish people demand a form player at hooker. Because for all the ridiculous talk of looking to win future tournaments and performing beyond means, all Scotland’s fans want right now is to compete with the big boys. Scaring France and losing will not be ideal, but it will be a vast improvement on being thoroughly embarrassed against Ireland and England and perhaps fewer will be calling for Johnson’s head if Scotland run close.Not coming back: Louis Picamoles has been droppedSaint-Andre, on the other hand, has to win. Despite the moments of confusion, the continued, bubbling resentment between clubs and country, the indiscipline, a dropped No 8 and a lack of leadership on the park, France will be expected to win this regardless of the venue. Losing to this Scotland team would signal an incredible low for France. Saint-Andre can call out his players as much as he wants, and in many games his playing staff have let him down. But when this happens often, eventually you have to ask why. “There is unbelievable talent within the French ranks, yet they cannot be organized for a game like this or motivated for it?” you may ask. Sometimes the coach has to carry the can.Whichever way you cut Scotland versus France, there is no outcome that suits both. One member of the Beleaguered Coaches Club will have a head-splitting migraine come Sunday morning, and it will have nothing to do with celebratory boozing.

Bear Lake Elementary students raise technology funds

first_img It was quite wet last week at Bear Lake Elementary, so unfortunately the Boosterthon Fun Run that was scheduled for August 31 was moved inside where the students did a HeroFit exercise experience (think P90-X for kids!).More than 1,000 students participated in the 8-day Boosterthon program. Funds were raised to purchase new technology for classrooms.Wednesday was the culmination of a eight-day program that raised much-needed funds for Bear Lake Elementary. At the same time students were inspired students to live healthy, character-filled lives.The Boosterthon team kicked off the program last week with a Pep Rally to get the students fired up to help Bear Lake Elementary.During the 8-day program, Bear Lake students learned from other student leaders how they can implement their own ideas to make a positive impact in the Apopka community.This year’s Boosterthon character theme was Backyard Box Office, which introduced more than 1.3 million students in 1,900 schools across the nation to five real-life, inspiring students, whose world-changing ideas will prepare today’s youth to implement their own ideas.“In our 15 years of serving schools, we’ve met incredible students with amazing ideas,” said Chris Carneal, Boosterthon founder and president. “And as a father of four, I know that young students don’t always know how to make their ideas happen. Backyard Box Office changes that. It celebrates five kid-leaders who have put their ideas into action, and it gives the students watching a clear path to do the same.”The five kid-leaders are:Aidan Thomas Hornaday (founder of the non-profit, AidanCares)Connor Ford (inventor of the app, Spirit, which increases school engagement)Alex Triestman (founder of Brickshare, a LEGO-sharing organization for less fortunate kids)Trisha Prabhu (inventor of the app, ReThink, with cyber-bullying prevention technology)Winter Vinecki (youngest person to run a marathon on each continent and Olympic Winter games hopeful)The Boosterthon Fun Run is a national fundraising program that promotes fitness, leadership, and character and partners with more than 1,900 schools each year. Since its founding in 2001, Boosterthon has raised schools more than $150 million and reimagined an industry that relied on students selling products door-to-door. Through Boosterthon, students benefit from a fun, interactive program that makes a positive impact on schools and develops leaders. 2 COMMENTS You have entered an incorrect email address!

Pump prices rose at the beginning of the month, but trickled down from there.”From AAAFlorida gas prices took a surprising leap last week, rising an average of 11 cents. Florida drivers are now paying an average price of $2.49 per gallon.Prices at the pump are now the most expensive in more than a year. The state average is now the highest since January 2020. During that time, the price of crude was sitting at the same level it is now.Crude oil prices have also bounced back to pre-pandemic levels. The price for U.S. crude rose to nearly $57 per barrel on Friday; the most expensive oil price since January 2020. Friday’s settlement of $56.85/b is $4 per barrel more than the week before. A 9% shift like that would typically lead to a 10 cent shift at the pump, as a higher oil price raises the cost for producing gasoline.“Gas prices unexpectedly jumped last week, getting well ahead of where wholesale prices would suggest they’d go,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Regardless, early-month pump price hikes are something we’ve seen many times during the past year. The moves are often caused by retailers that enter into new monthly gasoline delivery contracts. If the new contract is higher than the month before, the added expense is often front-loaded, when passed along to the consumer. In many cases during recent months, pump prices rose at the beginning of the month, but trickled down from there.”“The gasoline market is also following the lead set by oil prices,” Jenkins continued. “Although, the fuel market is still worried about Covid-19 cases, there are other factors that are providing optimism in the market. Cold weather across the Northern Hemisphere has boosted demand for heating oil, an element refined from crude. The anticipated stimulus bill is expected to put more money in Americans’ pockets, which could encourage spending. Globally, there’s hope that continued production cuts from OPEC and its allies will create a fuel supply deficit through 2021.”The state average price for gasoline in Florida of $2.49 per gallon is 11 cents more than a week ago. Florida drivers are paying 20 cents per gallon more than this time last month, and 8 cents per gallon more than this time last year.Lowest Gas Prices in Apopka Sam’s Club gas station, 1500 S Orange Blossom Trail, Apopka – one of the lowest gas prices this week LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!

Richmond Place House / Boyd Cody Architects

The house is located in a conservation area close to Dublin’s city centre, on a small but prominent infill corner site at the junction between Mountpleasant Avenue and Richmond Place. A modest dwelling built to replace the existing cottage located on the site. Save this picture!The accommodation consists of 2no. bedrooms, 2no. bathrooms, kitchen, utility and living / dining area set over three separate levels. At two stories the house remains substantially in character with the nearby terrace of houses and forms a low book-end building to Richmond Place, while making a strong contextual response to both the unusual site configuration and the prevailing architectural context, in particular the gable end of the house immediately opposite on Mountpleasant Square.Save this picture!The ambition is to build the entire site, maximising the footprint of the building and visually extending the living area into the external courtyards formed to each side. The geometry of the existing site is the principal generator of the building form. Approximately triangular in shape and with a pronounced curve along Richmond Place, the house adopts the site boundary line along its north and south elevations and aligns with the adjacent terrace to the east and west. Save this picture!The resultant form is carved twice to make two compressed entrance spaces one to the front and a smaller one at the rear. In order to maintain the low-lying nature of the block fronting to Richmond Place, the living room is sunk 750mm into the ground, following the natural fall across the site.Save this picture!The house exploits its section to create a series of interconnected but separate spaces of varying height and dimension, creating a sequence of compression and release as one circulates through the plan. The main bedroom opens out into the roof-lit stairwell by means of a work desk and folding screen forming a potentially seamless flow of space connecting with the living room and kitchen below. The kitchen itself is placed at the entry level and overlooks the living space across the worktop, with the storage units opening into the living room. The concrete desk formed by extending the ground surface into the building, faces west into the courtyard and the neighbouring street beyond. Externally the house is faced entirely in brick, directly referencing the neighbouring house. Satin anodised aluminium windows are brought flush to the surface of the outer skin to accentuate the tautness of the form and emphasize the two entry points. Internally a simple palette of materials is deployed, white oak for the service areas, concrete, plaster and rubber to the living areas to give a legible uniform reading to the interior.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessNorwegian Ministry of Defense / JVASelected ProjectsYAMoPo 2008: Yet Another Most Popular Architecture Sites RankingArticles Sharecenter_img Architects: Boyd Cody Architects Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!+ 22 Share CopyAbout this officeBoyd Cody ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesDublin City3D ModelingIrelandPublished on July 03, 2008Cite: “Richmond Place House / Boyd Cody Architects” 03 Jul 2008.

MOKA is a renovation project of a little chalet in Yvonand, a touristic village on the south shore of the lake of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The area is very natural and intensively wooded, inhabited by approximatively 3’000 people. While in summer the wild beaches become crowdy and the sun brings life to this tiny place, in winter everything gets darker and mystic. The fog and the cold humid wind alternate to create a less comfortable environment and exposes the constructions to difficult conditions.Save this picture!DrawingWhen the client came to us, he wanted a solution that allow him to spend warmer winters at home. The house was cold, humid and air flows were disturbing.What we did was to simply strip the house to the wooden structure of the facades and prepare a new insulated skin. The roof was also entirely redone.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouThe deterioration of the old construction was clear as we deconstructed the facades. The wooden timber was in ugly conditions so our intervention had to pass, in first place, by an action of reparation and reconstruction of the structural elements. Once we secured the body of the house, we worked on the insulation and on water proofing the house.Save this picture!Before. Image © Antonio ConroyWe chose to use very thin (4x4cm) wood elements for the cladding of the facade, they were placed vertically and with a distance of one centimeter between them. By repeating this solution all along the four facades we obtained a vibrating texture and, most of all, unity, which we thought fundamental on a so little building.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouIn opposition, and to frame these surfaces, we worked with the geometry of the new roof gutter. We covered it with a flat element made of copper. This element was big enough to cover all the new 20cm insulation of the roof and contributed, by being the sole part of the roof visible, to simplify and make the overall presence of the chalet easier to read.Save this picture!Ground floor planThe copper element, large and flat, contributes to the equilibrium of the project. We like the interaction of this smooth metal element with the rough surfaces of the facades. As this project didn’t offer the economic margin for big architectural gestures, we focused on materials and details and on the global atmosphere that we could create by working on them.Save this picture!© Alan HasooSave this picture!Construction sectionThe original building had a wooden pergola on it’s south sunny side. Covered by a grapevine, it offered a protected space where the owner could spend summer moments with friends, a nice place for chilling and dine in good company.Save this picture!© Antonio ConroyWith the new project we had to think of a new pergola able to offer a similar atmosphere. Made of a light steel frame, the new structure works as just a skeleton for the trees. It is able to disappear as the grapevine climbs on it and, placed on a swept concrete surface, offers a beautiful shady place to continuing enjoying the beautiful natural environment.Save this picture!© Matthieu GafsouProject gallerySee allShow lessOlivier Debré Contemporary Art Center / Aires MateusSelected ProjectsMODULE+ / Nguyen Khac Phuoc Architects + Dang+PartnersSelected Projects Share 2017 “COPY” MOKA / Concrete and the woods ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/907912/moka-concrete-and-the-woods Clipboardlast_img read more

Manual teaches intelligence agency employees how to spy on problem journalists

first_img to go further December 21, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Manual teaches intelligence agency employees how to spy on problem journalists Help by sharing this information RSF_en News October 21, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Colombia April 27, 2021 Find out more Reports Duque’s personal details, including her phone numbers and email addresses, appear at the head of the manual, which recommends how long anonymous calls should last, the kind of place from which they should be made and how the person making the call should travel in a bus and avoid places with surveillance cameras. These recommendations appear to have been followed to the letter in Duque’s case since 2004, the year she began getting calls threatening her and her 10-year-old daughter.The DAS’s activities have never been properly investigated. The Constitutional Court ordered the DAS to hand over all the information it had gathered on Duque, but the agency has yet to respond.Hollman Morris, who has been covering Colombia’s civil war for more than 10 years and who, like Duque, was one of the first journalists to be targeted by the DAS, has brought a complaint against the Colombian state before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, calling for an investigation into “those responsible for the threats, harassment, tailing, defamation and political stigmatisation” of himself and his family, which forced them to flee the country.In the 71-page complaint, prepared with the help of the José Alvear Restrepo lawyers collective, Morris said he received the first threats in 2000, when he was working for the daily El Espectador. Since then, he has been the target of various forms of harassment, threats and smears, including by President Alvaro Uribe himself.

We note that the president’s office has so far failed to dissociate itself from these latest ones. And why hasn’t the DAS handed over its files on Duque and other journalists to the Constitutional Court, as it is supposed to?”The national daily El Espectador said the spying manual was among the files seized during searches of the DAS that were carried out on the orders of the attorney-general’s office. A PowerPoint document entitled “Political War,” the manual includes instructions on how to make anonymous phone calls and spread false allegations.One of the manual’s most alarming aspects is its use of the case of Duque, the Radio Nizkor reporter whose bodyguards were spying on her for the DAS. The authorities appear to have been worried about Duque’s investigative reporting of the 1999 murder of columnist and humorist Jaime Garzón, which many have been carried out by former DAS employees.
