Picking Farrell and Burgess is not a risk, insists Lancaster

first_img“It is not a gamble. People said it was a gamble to put him in the 31-man squad but day by day, week by week, he is proving people wrong,” Lancaster said in Thursday’s press conference.“In full-on games in training he’s had to defend against Jonathan Joseph, Henry Slade and Brad (Barritt) and I’ve watched him day in, day out doing that. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Stuart Lancaster insists he is not taking any risks by selecting either Owen Farrell or Sam Burgess in his side to face Wales on Saturday.The England coach made the decision to drop George Ford to the bench to make room for Farrell, while Ford’s Bath teammate Burgess lines up at inside-centre.Lancaster says Farrell’s selection shows the depth England have in the fly-half position, with the Saracens man having pushed Ford for the starting role since the Aviva Premiership final.As for Burgess, Lancaster hopes the Rugby League convert can translate his form in training and as a substitute in the win over Fiji into a strong performance from the start against Wales. Sam Burgess and Owen Farrell in training on Thursday center_img Stuart Lancaster has explained and defended his decisions to drop George Ford and start Owen Farrell and Sam Burgess in England’s game against Wales “I’m certain he can deal with the big game experience and I’m certain he can carry the ball over the gain line.“My confidence in him has grown. We scored two tries at the end of the Fiji game and they were a lot to do with Owen and Sam.”last_img read more

HSBC Lions Weekly – Hong Kong

first_imgMonday Jun 3, 2013 HSBC Lions Weekly – Hong Kong The Lions had a good win against the Barbarians in Hong Kong, and a busy week leading up to it. The first of the HSBC Lions Weekly segments takes us behind the scenes, including an interview with Brian O’Driscoll, and post match feedback from two legends. Throughout the tour we’ll be featuring regular Lions Weekly slots, which will cover all the news, views and off field goings on of the 2013 British & Irish Lions Tour to Hong Kong and Australia.Gareth Edwards and Martin Johnson did some youth coaching during the week, then after the game, they share their thoughts on what went down in Hong Kong.Western Force fixture – Wednesday 5 June, 18:00 / 11:00 BSTBrian O’Driscoll chatted to Edwards about his fourth Lions tour, and today it was announced that he will captain the side that will face the Western Force in Perth on Wednesday. The starting XV won’t include any of the players that started against the Barbarians.“There were a lot of positives to come out of the first match in Hong Kong,” said Warren Gatland. “Our fitness and application were excellent and we operated well in the set pieces. That said, it was our first match and naturally we were a bit rusty, and there is definitely room for improvement.“With Brian at the helm you can be sure they will be ready to emulate the victory against the Barbarians. This is his fourth Lions tour and he is a respected leader.”Lions team vs Western ForceBacks: 15. Leigh Halfpenny, 14. Tommy Bowe, 13. Brian O’Driscoll, 12. Manu Tuilagi, 11. George North, 10.

Dogwoodtrot House / modus studio

The Dogwoodtrot House is aptly named as a synthesis of the strong vernacular typology of a dogtrot house and the woodland hillside site to create a modern model for a suburban home located within Dogwood Canyon in northwest Fayetteville, Arkansas. The home denies the common McMansion typology of the surrounding context and instead creates useful, purposeful, and poetic spaces that capture the dynamics of the site while clearly organizing important interior and exterior spaces for the large family rendered in a simple, warm, and elegant palette.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyThe heavily sloped site embraces two embedded wings of brick and glass with a playful mass timber bridge clad in vertical redwood spanning across. The redwood wraps the underbelly of the bridge and is the tableau for a constructed ‘constellation’ of ephemeral lighting that creates an inviting entry terrace to channel prevailing winds, receive one to the home, and frame views to the ravine and hillside beyond. The project is purposefully designed so the daily experience of arriving home (day or night) is an equally welcoming experience to that of the occasional visitor, a stark contrast to the overly-formal and rarely-used front door and foyer that defines the traditional and unfavorable McMansion typology.Save this picture!DiagramThe southern wing of the home contains the garage, storage, and game room and is oriented specifically to cut down on midday solar gain to the outdoor bridge terrace. It is stable and simple in form, with minimal articulation, a constructed stone akin to one that could be found on the given natural site.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyThe northern wing holds the primary family spaces of living, kitchen, dining and master suite all nestled into the wooded surroundings. Ample windows deliver natural light and frame views while the family hearth anchors the embedded and carved brick form to the site. The kitchen, the hub of family life, serves as the landing point for the central stair, where the children’s wing, master wing, entry, and interior and exterior living spaces converge in a rich palette of wood. Large accordion doors open the living space to the bridge terrace and garden planters to create a dynamic indoor/outdoor space for daily family life and entertaining.Save this picture!PlansHousing the children’s bedrooms and study spaces, the bridge wing formally slides into the northern family wing with a continuous redwood ceiling in the kitchen and a skylight on either side that allows the bridge to perfectly articulate its formal relationship. This playful structure gently sits on top of the southern wing, similar to a tree felled across a ravine striking a perfect balance on a hillside stone. The exposed trusses of the bridge are prevalent in every space of the upper level, providing striking expressive details.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyThe Dogwoodtrot House is a striking modern home rendering material and structural expressiveness on a dynamic woodland hillside, organized around a central covered space that hearkens to the vernacular dogtrot typology in lieu of the overwrought context of suburbia. Strong interior and exterior connections emphasized by a 30’ clear span bridge of bedrooms defines the carefully articulated form of the home.Save this picture!© Aaron KimberlinProject gallerySee allShow lessOpening of “Renegades: Bruce Goff and the American School of Architecture at Bizzell”ExhibitionWhich Countries Have Banned Asbestos?Architecture News Share Houses Structural Engineer: Architects: modus studio Area Area of this architecture project Dogwoodtrot House / modus studio Dogwoodtrot House / modus studioSave this projectSaveDogwoodtrot House / modus studio Save this picture!© Aaron Kimberlin+ 18Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Photographs:  Aaron Kimberlin, Timothy Hursley Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2016 Stronghold NWA Contractor: Chris Baribeau, AIA (principal architect); Suzana Annable, AIA (project manager); Michael Pope, AIA; Philip Rusk, Assoc.

Chokwe Lumumba: ‘The people must decide’

first_imgChokwe LumumbaWorkers World was saddened to learn that Mayor Chokwe Lumumba of Jackson, Miss., died at the age of 66 on Feb. 24, before he finished the first year of his term. His death is a great loss to the progressive movement in the U.S. and worldwide — as could be seen a week earlier when he took a public position in support of the Bolivarian government of Venezuela against U.S. intervention — and an especially great loss to the Black population of Jackson. We publish, below, excerpts from an article written by Monica Moorehead last June after Lumumba’s victory in the election.In a historic election, long-time Black political activist and civil rights attorney Chokwe Lumumba was elected mayor of Jackson, Miss., on June 5, winning a whopping 87 percent of the vote. For decades, Lumumba fought for the right to self-determination for Black people. He was vice president of the Republic of New Afrika, which demanded that the southeastern region of the U.S. be ruled under the auspices of an independent Black government as part of reparations for the unpaid labor of enslaved Africans and the continuing legacy of white supremacy.The RNA became a target of the FBI’s Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO), resulting in spying on, physical assaults and jailings of RNA leaders, similar to what happened to the Black Panthers. Lumumba was also the attorney for Black freedom fighter Assata Shakur, who was forced into exile in Cuba after she escaped from a New Jersey prison, and the late hip-hop artist Tupac Shakur, whose mother, Afeni Shakur, was one of the imprisoned Panther 21.Lumumba legally defended the Scott sisters, Jamie and Gladys, who were falsely accused of robbery and sentenced to double life sentences in a Mississippi prison before they were pardoned due to national mass pressure.Lumumba was elected to the Jackson City Council in 2009. When he decided in 2012 to run for mayor, he described himself as a “Fannie Lou Hamer Democrat.” Hamer was the dynamic Black civil rights activist who founded the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, which challenged an entrenched, racist, all-white local delegation at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. The MFDP demanded the right to political representation for Black people, including the right to vote.What led to Lumumba’s mayoral victory was a political program called “The Jackson Plan: A Struggle for Self-Determination, Participatory Democracy, and Economic Justice.”In describing this platform, which comes from the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement and the Jackson People’s Assembly, Lumumba stated on “Democracy Now!”: “We have formed like a people’s assembly, that’s key to what we’ve done here, where we have — every three months, the population can come out and participate in an open forum to say what’s on their mind. They can come out and learn some of the problems that the city is facing and some of the solutions that some of the problem solvers are supposed to be offering.“And this will bring about more public education and political education to the population of the city, make our population more prepared to be motivated and organized in order to participate in the changes which must occur in the city of Jackson in order to move it forward. We say the people must decide. ‘Educate, motivate, organize.’” (June 6)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF condemns Algerian fixer’s indictment

first_img Follow the news on Algeria Receive email alerts Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria News News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is shocked to learn that Saïd Chitour, an Algerian fixer who has been held since June, has been formally indicted on a charge of that could result in his spending the rest of his life in prison. to go further News RSF_en Help by sharing this information A court in the Algiers district of Bir Mourad Rais agreed yesterday to a request by prosecutors that Chitour should be tried under article 65 of the criminal code on a charge of complicit relations with a foreign power, a charge that carries a possible life sentence. The case has been referred to a criminal court. “We are appalled by this news,” RSF said. “Saïd Chitour is recognized nationally and internationally as a fixer and stringer who works for such prestigious international media outlets as the BBC, Washington Post and France 24. As his lawyers say the prosecution still has absolutely no evidence against him, we condemn yesterday’s decision and we continue to call for his release.” Arrested by intelligence agents at Algiers international airport on 5 June, Chitour is alleged to have passed confidential documents to foreign diplomats. He is diabetic and has lost 20 kilos since his arrest. His family and colleagues are very worried about his health. RSF launched a petition for his release in October. Algeria is ranked 134th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
