first_imgThe final weekend of the 2014-15 season in the UK and Ireland featured two league finals, a European Champions Cup qualifying showdown and a run-out for England against the Barbarians. Who cast the spells to magic up the silverware, and who fluffed their lines on the big stage? Unstoppable: Leone Nakarawa ran Munster ragged in the Guinness Pro12 final (Photo: Inpho)Lock opens the door for GlasgowWhen Gregor Townsend handed Leone Nakarawa the No 4 jersey instead of Al Kellock before Saturday’s Pro12 final, he told him: “I just want you going forward. I will be very happy if you don’t make an off-load today.” The Fijian certainly went forward, eating up metres of the Kingspan Stadium turf on several occasions, but he added some magnificent off-loads into the bargain and was instrumental in Glasgow Warriors building up a 21-3 lead from which even the mighty Munster could not recover. Oh brother! Farrell celebrates at Twickenham with his brother Gabriel. (Photo: PA). Grinning Gregor: Townsend and the Pro12 trophy in the victors’ changing room. (Photo: Inpho)Gregor the greatGlasgow Warriors turned the heartbreak of last season’s 34-12 Pro12 final loss on its head by comprehensively defeating Munster 31-13 in this year’s showpiece to become the first Scottish professional team to claim a major trophy.The new Guinness Pro12 champions have plenty of heroes in their ranks, but chief among them is head coach Gregor Townsend, who has taken the Warriors steadily up the rankings in the last few years, stacking improvement upon improvement until they were ready to claim their reward on Saturday evening.He used 52 players in this season’s campaign, which shows how good he is at man-management and employing his resources skilfully. He is not afraid to take the tough decision either – as he showed by starting Glasgow hero Al Kellock on the bench in his last match for the side before he retires.Townsend had plenty of flair in his playing days and likes to see the same from the team he coaches, which is great for spectators and players like. He and his team have conquered the Pro12. Now they need to kick on and rule Europe. The SinnersBad timingThe Aviva Premiership final was a wonderful occasion at a sun-kissed Twickenham but one part of the venue let the side down – the stadium clock. As the last four minutes of the final began, the clock which the players and 80,589 supporters rely upon, stopped working. Referee Wayne Barnes had to tell the teams to ignore it and he gave them regular time up-dates for the remainder of the game. Bath had enough on their plates, trying to close a 12-point gap on the scoreboard, without being uncertain about how much time was left.BT Sport’s TV viewers were also without a clock from the 76th minute to the 78th, but the on-screen clock was restored to working order for the last 90 seconds. Replay leads to rethinkBath’s medics and management looked to be heading for the Sinners bench when they allowed Anthony Watson to play on for five minutes after he was seemingly knocked out by Owen Farrell’s high tackle in the early stages of the Aviva Premiership final, but it turns out they made excellent use of the facilities for detecting head injuries and took a brave decision which deprived their team of a key player in a massive match, for the good of that player.High hit: Anthony Watson is floored by Owen Farrell and Mako Vunipola. (Photo: Getty Images)The medics who attended to Watson on the pitch did not see the contact with Farrell. The full-back passed their initial checks to his head and neck, so they allowed him to play on – but when they left the pitch they took a look at the video footage pitch-side.That showed them Watson might have been knocked out, and Bath brought him off at the next available opportunity for a proper Head Injury Assessment, from which he did not return.As a Bath club statement said: “We take all potential head and concussion related injuries very seriously, and player welfare is of paramount importance to the Club.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The SaintsStand-out stand-offHe helped himself to 18 points in a 28-16 victory, controlled the tactics and tempo with a superb kicking game and won the Peter Deakin Medal for the Man of the Match in the Aviva Premiership final, so Owen Farrell deserves his place among the Saints.Deposed from the England team by his opposite number in this final, George Ford, Farrell showed the battle for the national No 10 jersey is well and truly on as the World Cup build-up begins in earnest.He scored Saracens’ first try, cleverly pushing the ball across to Duncan Taylor to stretch the Bath defence and then dummying his way past Matt Banahan and over the line.Some might expect Farrell to be among the Sinners for his high tackle in the second minute which put Anthony Watson out of the game, but at the time I felt it warranted no more than a penalty and although Farrell was given a warning by the Citing Commissioner, he will not face a hearing and a ban. TAGS: Glasgow WarriorsSaracens Cip, Cip, hooray!When your team wins 73-12 there is bound to be a few Saints among your number and that is certainly true for the England XV which defeated the Barbarians so comprehensively at Twickenham on Sunday.Chief among them was fly-half Danny Cipriani, although Henry Slade, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Marland Yarde and hat-trick scorer Christian Wade were also impressive.Dan dares: Cipriani dives over for his second try in an excellent performance. (Photo: Getty Images)It was Cipriani who earned the Man of the Match award though, thanks to his marshaling of England’s back line and his flawless goal-kicking which saw him land 11 shots out of 11, from all kinds of angles. The Sale playmaker ended up with 33 points to his name as he also scored England’s sixth and tenth tries and he enhanced the good impression he must have been making on Stuart Lancaster by switching happily to full-back for a spell of the second half – something he need to be able to do if he is to make England’s World Cup squad. Up for the cup: Dave Strettle (left) shone in the Aviva Premiership final. (Photo: Getty Images)Skills to pay the billsHalf an hour into the Aviva Premiership final, Saracens were already looking good for their 15-3 lead, then a superb piece of skill from Dave Strettle extended that advantage to 22-3. Duncan Taylor intercepted and offloaded superbly to send the ball towards the wing. It was too far in front of Strettle for him to catch, but he stretched out a foot, daintily chipped the ball up into his own hands and a few seconds later Chris Wyles was strolling over the line on the left for a valuable try.It was far from being Strettle’s only important contribution to the win. He made a try-saving tackle on Kyle Eastmond ten minutes into the second half and made a total of 71 metres in attack for Saracens. Earlier in the month Tuilagi pleaded guilty at Leicester Magistrates Court to three counts of assault and was ordered to pay £6,205 in fines and compensation. That cost him a place in England’s World Cup squad. Speeding is a much more common crime and perceived as less serious, but the timing is still terrible for a player should be thinking deeply about his every move at the moment. Heart-breaker: Pierre Bernard (centre) kicked Bordeaux-Begles to victory. (Photo: Getty Images)Kicked in the teethSinners are thin on the ground this week and, as a Gloucester fan, the temptation to include Bordeaux-Begles fly-half Pierre Bernard for breaking west-country and English hearts is overwhelming!Bernard kicked the 81st-minute drop-goal which enable the French side to snatch a 23-22 win over Gloucester in the European Champions Cup play-off and take the 20th and final spot in next season’s premier European tournament. The referee was playing a penalty advantage so the drop-goal opportunity was a classic “shot to nothing” but it was a still a magnificent kick from outside the 22 and (in my one-eyed opinion) it was undoubtedly the worst moment of a weekend of great rugby.But seriously, perhaps Greig Laidlaw should be a Sinner for opting to tap-and-go with a penalty from just inside the ten-metre line and 15 metres in from the left, when Gloucester trailed 20-19 with 20 minutes to go? Yes, it was against the wind but it must have been worth a shot for the mighty boot of James Hook. There were plenty of other Gloucester villains too – John Afoa for throwing a pass behind Rob Cook with the try-line looming, Richard Hibbard for failing to pass outside to Charlie Sharples for another great try-scoring chance, and the Gloucester team in general for letting a 19-3 lead slip. Take your pick.But while I sulk and blame Bernard, I will console myself with the fact that at least Gloucester will have a chance to defend their European Challenge Cup next season. In the first half alone, Nakarawa beat five defenders with seven carries and off-loaded three times, creating two tries in the process. With just eight minutes gone he broke across the 22, stepping through and around three would-be tacklers and then, when he was finally halted, he shoveled the ball out to Robert Harley who dived in for the first try. Around 17 minutes later Nakarawa took a pass from Gordon Reid and although he only made a handful of yards this time, he took four defenders out of the game and created the space for DTH van der Merwe to extend Glasgow’s lead. The Fijian lock was involved in several of the 13 phases of close-range play which led up to Finn Russell‘s second-half try too, and he won his share of lineout ball on the day.Nakarawa has shown he can be a winner with the Warriors. Can he do the same with Fiji in the World Cup? England and Wales beware! Double troubleManu Tuilagi will be glad to see the back of May 2015. He ended the month in trouble with the police for the second time – banned from driving for 56 days after being caught speeding at an average of 81mph on the A1 and reaching the critical level of 12 points on his driving licence. He was also fined £1,000 by the magistrates at Northallerton.last_img read more

Dwell Development LLC, the award- winning design/build firm focused on building modern sustainable homes, is leading the charge for innovative architectural design and green building in Seattle with the completion of their net-zero “Reclaimed Modern” home. Nestled in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood, the eco-friendly home proves the combination of modern design and pragmatic necessity is the future of development.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishEvery home built by Dwell Development is designed with the goal of net-zero energy use in mind. The Reclaimed Modern home embodies that mindset with the use of repurposed building materials and energy-efficient technology. “We use a holistic approach at Dwell Development similar to the farm-to-table idea, where we incorporate local materials into our homes that are natural, recycled, or repurposed. It’s about making conscious choices,” says owner, Anthony Maschmedt.. With materials cultivated from its surroundings, this home lives true to the firm’s principle belief of conservation.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishThe pathway leading up to the 3,140 square-foot three-story home is made out of repurposed concrete from the public sidewalk removed during construction. The home’s exterior was built using salvaged wood and corrugated metal from a deconstructed barn in the Willamette Valley. Practicing the Dwell Development philosophy, no material is wasted. The barn wood is incorporated into the roof soffit hovering above the deck and Lake Washington views, while the metal is used for the siding and fencing.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanAbbey Maschmedt, the Design Project Coordinator at Dwell Development, says “We have always used a lot of materials with high recycled content, but the idea of actually taking and reusing materials from old buildings slated for demolition was the next step – a natural evolution.” The organic rusty hue coupled with the modern structure of the home creates an instant patina and a compelling addition to the vibrant urban neighborhood.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishThe exterior of the home is coated with Enviro-Dri, an applied weather-resistive barrier as opposed to traditional house paper, that seals the exterior of the building against moisture intrusion, protecting the home from the harsh Pacific Northwest climate. The pervious concrete keeps rainwater onsite, recharging the ground water and lessening the burden on the storm water infrastructure. Despite Seattle’s seemingly grey reputation, the sun is a valuable energy resource that did not go unused.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanMaschmedt’s team installed solar panels to facilitate net-zero living. The solar panels convert energy to usable electricity, offsetting the homeowners’ energy use and reducing their carbon footprint. The home’s triple pane windows keep the heat inside while the Heat Recovery Ventilator provides constant fresh air. The sustainable technology keeps energy usage low while providing a healthy, comfortable environment for its inhabitants.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishProject gallerySee allShow lessWooden Building Reconstruction of Riga School Of Design And Art / Zaigas Gailes birojsSelected ProjectsThis Plastic Bottle House Turns Trash into Affordable Housing in NigeriaArchitecture News Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Tucker English+ 22 Sharelast_img read more

first_imgNews Receive email alerts BoliviaAmericas Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Bolivian journalist hounded after accusing boss of sexual harassment Adolfo Cerrudo, the head of a pro-government group, is to appear in court tomorrow for threats and attacks on journalists. At the same time, the government has given a green light to the military high command for an army lieutenant to be prosecuted for the bombing of a TV station in the southern department of Tarija on 21 June. Pro-government activist Adolfo Cerrudo was placed under house arrest when he finally appeared in court on 23 July on charges of threatening and attacking journalists. He was originally summoned to appear in court on 17 July, but he did not show up and the judicial authorities were initially unable to locate him.The court told Cerrudo he would henceforth have to appear before Virginia Crespo, the judge in charge of his case, each time a summons is issued.Cerrudo threatened to rape and kill a La Razón reporter and several of her colleagues during a protest he organised in La Paz on 4 March. Journalists were also threatened and attacked during another of his demonstrations._______________________________________________________________________________________25.07.2008- Two people to be tried for recent attacks on news mediaReporters Without Borders is pleased that two people are about to be tried for physical attacks against the privately-owned media. Adolfo Cerrudo is to appear in court tomorrow for threats and attacks on journalists in March and June. The trial of army lieutenant Georges Peter Nava Zurita for the 21 June bombing of Canal 4 television in southern city of Yacuiba is also expected soon, now that the government has given a green light to the military high command.“We welcome this political will to shed light on press freedom violations, especially those that marked the pro-autonomy referendums in opposition-controlled departments,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The government has demonstrated its determination by making it possible for an army officer to be tried.”The press freedom organisation added: “We reject any partisan attempts to exploit these cases and we condemn all attacks on the media with the same force, whether they are state or privately-owned, whether pro-government or pro-opposition.”The head of the Popular Civic Committee, a radical pro-government group, Cerrudo was arrested on 14 July while reportedly trying to steal a flag from a person’s home, but was quickly released because of the minor nature of the offence. Nonetheless he is to be tried tomorrow in connection with a protest he organised in La Paz on 4 March in response to an opposition demonstration, when he threatened to rape and kill a reporter with the daily La Razón and several of her colleagues. Journalists were also threatened and attacked against during a demonstration he organised in La Paz on 4 June (see 9 June release).Lt. Nava continues to be the leading suspect in the bombing of Canal 4-Unitel during a pro-autonomy referendum in the southern department of Tarija on 21 June. No one was injured but the explosion caused serious damage (see 23 June release).Nava was arrested in possession of dynamite and firearms shortly after leaving the scene of the bombing and then running his car off the road. He was also found to be in possession of accreditation issued by the Palacio Quemada, President Evo Morales’ official residence. Defence minister Walker San Miguel yesterday told the head of the armed forces he could allow Nava to be taken before the prosecutor in charge of the case.

He will remain at liberty until the appeal hearing.“It is worrying that the Yemeni authorities continue to hound journalists in this case, which has stopped making headlines elsewhere,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The four journalists facing charges simply raised in their respective papers the worldwide reactions which the cartoons had provoked. It seems that the authorities are however using this case to settle scores with the press,” it added.“Since he has several times said he opposed the criminalisation of press offences, we urge President Ali Abdallah Saleh to take responsibility for protecting the press by condemning the unfairness of the trials of editors of the three Yemeni newspapers who reprinted the controversial cartoons.”In February 2006, the editor of independent weekly al-Hurray, Adel Halima Aram Sabre, journalist Yahiya al Abed and editor of the Yemen Observer Mohammed al Asaadi, facing the same charges but being tried separately, spent two weeks in custody.

Print Article But, the Extension System also has programs on human nutrition, diet and health, consumer science and financial management, family and child development, and, of course, the 4-H programs that touch tens of thousands of young lives each year – 1,500 in Pike County alone.Regional extension agents from each of the program areas spoke to the Wednesday gathering.“We’ve probably had an Extension overload today,” said Grant Lyons, Pike County Extension coordinator and meeting host. “But the participants received some very timely information and some very beneficial information. We had an opportunity to discuss Extension programming and to look forward to the future as we partner with the community.”As interesting and informative as the presentations were, Lyons said the feedback from the Grassroots Assessment Meeting is essential in determining the needs for Pike County and directing the planning for future programs. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “By the year 2040, there will be nine billion people on the planet and, if enough food can’t be produced to feed them all, everyone will be hurting,” Hudson told the Extension agents and community leaders who attended the meeting. “That’s the importance of refocusing energy and dollars back into agriculture.”With less than 2 percent of the nation’s population involved in the production of food, it’s imperative, Hudson said, that ways are found to keep these people and future generations on the farm.The Alabama Cooperative Extension System has a focus on agriculture. Extension agents are available to assist producers through Extension’s animal science, livestock and commercial horticulture programs and also with the economics of farm management.
