OUCH: Sevu Reece makes brutal shot as winger steps directly into the line of fire

first_imgTuesday Mar 12, 2019 OUCH: Sevu Reece makes brutal shot as winger steps directly into the line of fire Sevu Reece marked his debut for the Crusaders last weekend in impressive style, with a Man of the Match performance against the side that never selected him, the Chiefs.ADVERTISEMENTThe 22-year-old Fijian was on the scoresheet in the champions’ 57-28 dismantling of their New Zealand rivals, and Reece has already made a great name for himself.Not only did he look fantastic with ball in hand, but his defensive contribution has also drawn a lot of attention, particularly this tackle on Solomon Alaimalo (more replays lower down).By modern standards, this hit is right on the edge of what is legal and what is not, as the brutal collision can be heard in the commentary. Alaimalo had to leave the field for an HIA.WATCH: This Sevu Reece tackle was so good that even the guy he smashed laughed about itReece is not the biggest player, but he certainly packs a lot of power in his tackles, and it will be no time at all before he garners quite an intimidating reputation if he keeps those displays up.ADVERTISEMENTHis 153 metres in 16 carries, five line breaks and an intercept try wouldn’t have hurt either.“Defensively, outstanding. And as any good winger, he just calls when he wants the ball, so he pretty much doesn’t shut up because he always wants it,” said Ryan Crotty of Reece post-match.ADVERTISEMENTHow will you watch the next Rugby World Cup – Enter for a chance to win £100https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WH2MFM3credit: sanzaar/@foxrugby/@rugbycomau Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The project’s conceptual framework is built around a critique of it’s developing suburban context, a typological narrative around the respective backgrounds of the clients, and a response to the specifics of the site itself. The house is located in the southern suburban fringe of Perth, a place that is currently undergoing rapid transformation from it’s loose, coastal urban form, into a built-up suburb typical of other areas along Perth’s coast. The house challenges the conventions of new detached housing being built in the area in that it is small, raised above the ground, has no front fence, no front door, no garage, and is not made of brick. The clients are a recently married couple. He, a born and bread West Australian, Her, a Queenslander. Analogous to their union, the design brings these two humble types together, combining the relaxed simplicity of a west-Australian beach shack with the climatic and utility benefits of a traditional raised Queenslander. The house resists the typical approach of flattening and filling the site and is instead, carefully lofted above a natural limestone outcrop, allowing the spaces above to make the most of coastal views while a shaded garden terrain is created below the house. Save this picture!© Robert FrithThe design celebrates the client’s desire to have a suburban home that has the casualness of a holiday shack; a sense that they could come home from work and instantly feel like they were near the beach whilst still benefitting from the connectedness and access to services that suburban living offers. The design of the house also needed to anticipate the future of it’s recently married inhabitants so an additional room is ‘tucked’ underneath the house at the rear, providing a flexible space that could be a 4th bedroom, granny flat, rumpus room, home office, or backyard pavilion. Save this picture!© Robert FrithThe house references the humble materiality and scale of nearby holiday beach houses that once defined the area. However, what might appear to be a simple weatherboard ‘shack’ is lofted above the ground in dynamic contrast to both these referenced buildings and the new houses that sit heavily on their flattened, retained sites, becoming a new type of house for the area. This seemingly simple box is notionally opened with a series of formal ‘flicks’ that reference traditional window awnings while permitting light, air and controlled views into and out of the house, and ensuring privacy and shading. Save this picture!© Robert FrithIn keeping with a typical Queenslander, the underside of the residence provides the utility, housing cars, beach paraphernalia, gardening equipment and the flexible room. Above, a compact apartment-like plan arrangement divides the house into simple private sleeping quarters on the east and generous, shared family spaces on the west, including an outdoor room that facilitates the indoor / outdoor lifestyle afforded by the Perth climate. These zones are divided by a continuous corridor ‘spine’; a hard-working element that contains the kitchen, bar-b-que, bedroom robe, storage and ducting, and widens at the southern end to form a study nook. Save this picture!© Robert FrithThe project was a fruitful collaboration between client, architect and builder towards a common vision for the project. A key example of this is in the ‘zig-zagging’ galvanized steel legs and the angular storeroom which notionally bellies-out from for the soffit of the house above. These elements primarily provide structural bracing but were crafted and detailed in such a way that they provide playful, expressive architectural features under the house. The storeroom is then specifically dimensioned to house two long kayaks. The key financial challenge of the project stemmed from the desire to maximise views over the surrounding rooftops and to preserve and incorporate the existing limestone ridge, all within a modest budget. This led to designing a small, compact house to offset the costs associated with raising the building high up on a steel structure. Also, the external finishes aim to achieve a balance of low-cost and low-maintenance whilst working with a beach-shack aesthetic. They include galvanised finish to steel, clear finished fibre cement sheet to the soffit and colorbond steel to the wall cladding and roof. Save this picture!© Robert FrithThe main contributing factor in energy consumption in housing is size as it relates to energy for heating and cooling. This compact house is less that 150m2 and will over it’s lifespan, consume far less energy than the average new house in Australia which is over 250m2. Despite it’s smallness, the house still delivers a high degree of spatial amenity through careful planning and placement of openings that maximise passive environmental benefits of north solar gain and cross-ventilation and prevent overloading of west sun in summer. This agenda of ‘smallness’ is backed up with sustainable material use. The project uses recycled and renewably sourced timber for flooring, walls and cabinetry and externally, the house is skinned in a white ‘colorbond’ steel weatherboard for it’s low heat absorption and longevity. Artificial lighting is typically LED for it’s lower energy consumption and maintenance. The landscape design incorporates native coastal species that require minimal watering. What watering is required, is provided for by a rainwater tank under the house. Also, the existing limestone ridge found on the site was used as a natural retaining wall, keeping disturbance to the natural ground to a minimum. Save this picture!© Robert FrithThe house is situated in an place that is rapidly loosing it’s heritage significance through a wave standard suburban development that fails to acknowledge the area’s unique cultural and built traditions. For example, the previously approved planning application on the site was for a 250m2, 3 bedroom house, + 2 car garage and swimming pool (despite the beach being only a few hundred meters away). The house was rendered brick with a tiled roof, and sat on a flattened site, retained with a 2m high wall; a house typical of the inappropriate new housing being built in the area. Instead, our project aims to celebrate and reinterpret the humble materiality, scale and form of nearby weatherboard and fibro beach shacks that once defined the area and work with the looseness and informality of the existing urban form of the area. Unlike most of the new houses in the street, the project is left unfenced at the front. This lack of rigid demarcation of the front and side boundaries, offers the street a natural limestone outcrop as visual amenity and appreciation of the terra firma. It is a suburban beach house for Coogee as much as it is for the clients.

Schlossnagle joins Gary Patterson as winningest coaches

With the final win, came something he, and the rest of TCU, won’t forget. The win marked Schlossnagle’s 518th win, surpassing Lance Brown as the baseball coach with the most wins.He now joins head football coach Gary Patterson as the winningest coaches in TCU history.How Schlossnagle got hereSchlossnagle was hired at TCU in the summer of 2003 and his main goal is to take the TCU baseball program to the top. His accomplishments include: hosting NCAA Regionals and NCAA Super Regionals and taking the Frogs to the College World Series. He said he always looks forward to every new season to see what can come out of his players.“My favorite thing is just putting together and being a part of a team,” Schlossnagle said.In 2010, he got his very first glimpse of what it looks like to have a team that can come together. That year he lead the team to TCU’s first College World Series appearance.And his hard work didn’t stop there. TCU has become one of seven national programs that have appeared in three of the last six College World Series.Pitcher Mitchell Traver said Schlossnagle says that the “players write their own lineup,” by the amount of hard work the players put in themselves. But Schlossnagle’s time on and off the field is just as important.TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Chris Del Conte said Patterson and Schlossnagle instill values into their players. He said when you think of the professional players that come from TCU, they always come back to train. He said them spending their time here, rather than in their own cities, shows the type of culture the coaches created in their programs.“When someone comes to TCU it’s not a four-year decision,” Del Conte said. “It’s a full-time decision. And they [both coaches] have exemplified that.”Under Schlossnagle’s reign, Cody Jones became the first Horned Frog to become the Big 12 Conference Player of the year. And Connor Wanhanen provided hope as he earned Big 12 Freshman of the Year last season.The work that Schlossnagle has done with the TCU baseball program since he arrived has led him to a contract for head coach through 2020.Schlossnagle said he has always wanted to coach here.“This was my dream job for a long, long time,” he said. “So to be here 13 years is a blessing.” TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello + posts Patterson’s JourneyJust like Feb. 21 was an important day for Schlossnagle, Sept. 8, 2012 had the same feeling for Patterson.It was the first time the Frogs got to play in the new Amon G. Carter Stadium since the renovations, but that wasn’t what made it memorable. It was Patterson’s 110th win. This mark gave him one more win over Dutch Meyer, earning Patterson the title of winningest football coach.Since Patterson came to TCU, he has become synonymous with TCU football. Prior to Patterson’s arrival on campus, TCU had just four 10-win seasons in its history. Now, the Frogs have won at least 11 games in nine of the last 14 seasons.Patterson has won 20 National Coach of the Year honors in his 15-year head coaching tenure at TCU.As TCU’s head coach, Patterson has had 36 players drafted and 82 who have participated in NFL camps.Del Conte said TCU’s coaches are ambitious. They wake up each morning wanting to go out and get a national championship, he said. That ambition permeates not only other TCU athletic programs, but TCU itself.“Athletics is a front porch,” Del Conte said. “It allows you to tell your story. Athletics and our brand and our media attention has brought great attention to our institution.” Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ [<a href=”//storify.com/kaceybowen/schlossnagle-becomes-winningest-coach” target=”_blank”>View the story “Schlossnagle becomes winningest coach ” on Storify</a>] Facebook Previous articleTCU Dance Marathon celebrates lifeNext articleFormer president to speak at Neeley conference Kacey Bowen RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU vs Georgia: “Playing to win”last_img read more

Catalan referendum: attacks on journalists, biased coverage

first_img RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive AFP June 2, 2021 Find out more News SpainEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Violence RSF_en According to figures provided by the Catalan government, around 850 people were injured as a result of the disproportionate use of force by police who had been deployed by the Spanish government. Those injured included press photographers and reporters who were covering the voting. The most serious incidents occurred in and around the Ramón Lull School in downtown Barcelona, which served as a polling station. Several photographers were hit or injured in crushes, as the photo-journalist Juan Carlos Mohr reported on Twitter. Xabi Barrena, a reporter for the Catalan daily El Periódico de Catalunya, was among the journalists attacked by Spanish riot police. He was struck by a police baton while using his mobile phone to film police charges inside the school. When he was on the ground, the police also kicked him. Sofia Cabanes, a reporter for the digital daily NacióDigital in Terres de l’Ebre who also freelances for the Spanish news agency EFE, was filming a police charge in Sant Carles de la Ràpita, near Tarragona when a member of the Spanish Civil Guard (a gendarmerie-style force) struck her arm with his baton, knocking her mobile phone to the ground. When she tried to pick it up, one of the policemen deliberately stamped on her hand. “We are appalled by the images of police violence coming from Catalonia,” said Macu de la Cruz, RSF Spain’s acting president. “The approximately 850 civilians reported injured included many reporters and photographers whose mission was to witness events and use their right to provide information.” RSF also registered incidents and acts of violence on the eve of the referendum. A woman reporter for the La Sexta TV channel was harassed and threatened by a group of far-right demonstrators during a live report. While a crew with the Catalan public TV channel TV3 was covering a citizen vigil outside a nearby voting station, all four tyres of their car were slashed and its windows were broken. Pro-independence crowds meanwhile constantly harassed Spanish TV reporters during their live reports, making it extremely difficult for them to work. Rage within Spanish public broadcaster RTVE Yesterday, the journalists’ association at RTVE, the Spanish public broadcaster that includes public television (TVE) and public radio (RNE), issued a statement accusing RTVE of bias and manipulation in its coverage of the referendum and the police violence. At the same time, the TVE News Council (an independent body of journalists that monitors TVE’s impartiality), issued a communiqué calling for the immediate resignation of the entire TVE news management for “failing in the public service duty entrusted to it by the law as regards the provision of objective, accurate and pluralist reporting in its coverage of the events of 1 October in Catalonia.” The communiqué added: “Not only did TVE make no special provision for an event of major importance, which would nonetheless have been easy to arrange, but also every effort was made to broadcast a partial vision of what happened.” At TVE headquarters at the Torrespaña building in Madrid, journalists demonstrated their anger about TVE’s one-sided coverage of the referendum by brandishing placards with the words #vergüenza in Spanish and #vergonya in Catalan (which both mean “shame”). “We express our solidarity with the journalists’ association at the public broadcaster RTVE, which has condemned RTVE’s one-sided coverage,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF European Union desk. “We regret that RTVE has neglected its public service duties and is now offering one of the worst visions of journalism – biased news reporting. It is nonetheless encouraging to see the courage, dignity and ethics of the journalists who, in their actions, are making demands and trying to defend the public broadcaster’s prestige.” Journalists at RNE, the public radio broadcaster, say it is unacceptable that RNE also failed to plan any special programming for 1 October. “Members of the public who listened to Radio 1 or Radio 5 in the hope of learning about the latest referendum developments just heard songs or reports that had nothing to do with the news,” the RNE News Council says on its website. The situation continues to be tense in Catalonia today, two days after the referendum, in which, according to the Catalan government, 90% of the votes were in favour of independence. Catalan unions called a general strike today in protest against the police violence during the referendum. RSF’s Spanish section has created an online “letter-box” to receive reports of violence and abuses against journalists. Spain is ranked 29th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Beige Book: Economic Conditions Improved Since Q1 2014

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Beige Book: Economic Conditions Improved Since Q1 2014  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Beige Book Federal Reserve Home Prices Mortgage Lending 2014-06-04 Tory Barringer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago A survey of activity across the United States finds economic conditions have largely improved since the end of the slower first quarter.In its latest Beige Book, released Wednesday, the Federal Reserve noted economic activity has expanded in recent months, with the pace of growth “characterized as moderate in the Boston, New York, Richmond, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, and San Francisco Districts, and modest in the remaining regions.”Compared to the last report, released in mid-April, growth picked up in the Cleveland and St. Louis districts but slowed in the Kansas City district, the Fed reported.Wednesday’s summary reinforces comments offered by Fed Chair Janet Yellen recently in which she forecast a faster pace of expansion as “financial conditions remain supportive of growth in economic activity and employment.” The report will be one of the factors in consideration when Yellen and the other voting members of the Federal Open Market Committee meet in two weeks to decide how to proceed with the Fed’s shrinking stimulus efforts.The central bank reported mixed news in residential real estate, “with some reports of low inventories constraining sales,” particularly in the Boston, New York, and Kansas City districts. Activity also softened in the Philadelphia, St. Louis, Minneapolis, and San Francisco regions, the latter of which attributing part of the weakness to “severe weather.”Meanwhile, home prices maintained their upward trend across most of the country, with only Boston reporting slight pullback in prices of single-family homes.Mortgage lending activity was similarly mixed. The Fed observed increases in residential real estate lending in the regions of Chicago, Kansas City, and Dallas, while activity held steady in Atlanta and San Francisco. On the other hand, Cleveland saw a slight weakening in lending, as did Richmond, thanks to a decline in refinancing.

The bench observed-“Humanity is most important. Everything else will follow. Today we learnt about Gautam Navlakha’s spectacles. This is high time to conduct a workshop for prison authorities.”Navlakha’s partner Sahba Hussain had stated that the 70-year-old journalist is nearly blind without his spectacles.Referring to the allegation by Navlakha’s family that although a replacement for the spectacles was sent by Speed Post on December 3 and were delivered on December 5 but the jail authorities refused to accept it, Justice Shinde asked-“Can you deny all these small items? These are all humane considerations,”The Additional Public Prosecutor for the State intervened and submitted that in Varavara Rao’s case, he was admitted to Nanavati hospital for medical assistance as he suffers from several ailments .Justice Shinde acknowledged that the State responded positively and got him (Rao) transferred to the hospital and reiterated that humanity is of utmost importance.Senior Advocate Mihir Desai appeared on behalf of the petitioner accused Ramesh Gaichor and Sagar Gorkhe. He submitted that the two accused were arrested by the NIA only because they refused to make statements before a magistrate against the other accused in the case. He submitted that they were being coerced by the NIA.Moreover Desai argued that the offence is alleged to have occurred in Pune and although the trial was initially held before a court in Pune, after the NIA took over the probe, it was transferred to the special NIA court in Mumbai even when there is a Special NIA court in Pune.”How many are accused in the case?”, Justice Shinde asked Sr Adv Mihir Desai.Desai: A total of sixteen accused have been arrested, three have been declared absconding, two of them are above 75 years of age and eight of them above 60.NIA’s counsel Advocate Sandesh Patil sought time to take instructions in the matter. The bench posted the matter for hearing on December 21.Navlakha, who is one of the accused in the case relating to the caste based violence that took place at Bhima Koregaon on January 1, 2018 had surrendered before the NIA on April 14, 2020.The petitioners in the present criminal writ petition that was heard today have challenged their arrest by the NIA. When Sagar Gorkhe, Ramesh Gaichor and Jyoti Jagtap, activists of cultural group Kabir Kala Manch, were arrested and produced before the trial court they informed the Court that they were being coerced into making statements against other accused in the case.However, the Special NIA Judge noted that at this stage, it cannot be said that there is substance in the objections raised by the accused on the point of forceful confessions. He refused to record the proposed statement of the accused that NIA was forcing them to make confessions.”Since at the stage of remand the court is required to inquire with the accused about the ill-treatment at the hands of police only but the tenor of the proposed statement of the accused is on the point of forcing them to make confessional statement, therefore court is not supposed to record it.

Employers need to develop reasonable and comprehensive policies for managingincapacity to combat spiralling costs of workplace absence, which rose from10.7bn to 11.8bn in the year 2000-1. This was the message delivered to delegates at the recent ManagingIncapacity conference organised by Employers’Law in association with Allen& Overy. Employment partner at the legal firm Karen Seward urged HR and occupationalhealth professionals to work together and to think laterally across severalareas of legislation: the employment contract, health and safety and theDisability Discrimination Act. Companies were advised to reserve the right in the employment contract todismiss staff in cases of prolonged incapacity and to reduce contractualobligations in relation to sick pay. Private health insurance was another area which could lead to expensiveclaims and delegates were warned that such schemes removed a lot of flexibilityin managing incapacity absences. On the other hand, the recent Sutherland v Hatton case should encourageemployers to adopt robust policies on dealing with stress. Another speaker at the briefing, Stephen Bevan, head of research at the WorkFoundation, told delegates that UK employers spend 16 per cent of their paybill each year managing sickness absence and up to 70 per cent of these costsare attributable to long-term absence.
