Five things we learnt in July

first_img Wales have a lot riding on Samson LeeJuly saw some huge positives emanating from the Wales camp. The extreme conditioning programme has been hugely successful and the coaching staff seem genuinely happy with the progress of the squad – but the one area of concern remains Samson Lee. It is testament to the Welsh staff that he is even anywhere near the required fitness levels given his injury, yet Warren Gatland’s admission that Lee is still “touch and go” is a problem.Whilst Wales don’t have the strength of the All Blacks or South Africa, in the majority of positions there is enough depth to make Wales competitive come September. That is not the case at tighthead and an awful weight of burden rests on Samson Lee’s young shoulders – shoulders that are admittedly powerful enough to underpin a subsiding three-storey Georgian town house. Without the impressive Lee, the Welsh scrum will be forced to rely on Aaron Jarvis, newbie Tomas Francis and Scott Andrews – with just 21 Test caps between them. A meagre amount when considering the challenge ahead.The naivety of Quade CooperJuly saw the England squad being given a guide to sensible social media usage during the Rugby World Cup (a mandatory for all teams participating in the competition). The 24-point guide could easily have featured a few case studies on bad practice from Quade Cooper – his Twitter blast last week being a fine example. To move or not to move: Taulupe Faletau on the attack against Ireland. Photo: Getty ImagesBy allowing all of the Premiership teams two ‘wildcards’ each season, whereby those wildcard signings wouldn’t face sanctions if they were released outside of the international window, those clubs would have a big advantage when signing marquee players. This may seem like suicidal advice for a Welshman to be advising the English Premiership on how to poach more players – but it seems like a common sense approach with few drawbacks. I need to wrap up this article quickly, before angry Welsh hordes, armed with pitchforks, set fire to my house.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Misbehaving Wallabies, innovative All Blacks and the importance of Samson Lee for Wales are all topics addressed in this July review Split position: England want to play Sam Burgess in midfield not the back row. Photo: Getty ImagesIt is not as if the debate is even focused on whether Burgess is a 12 or a 13, a wing or a full-back, or a six or an eight; for Bath and England to still be haggling over whether he is a forward or a back is calamitous. Made even more ridiculous when you consider that the Rugby World Cup is kicking off in a matter of weeks.With the warm-ups against France just days away this time should be spent refining and honing defensive lines and attacking patterns, not reacquainting a player with a position he hasn’t played for months. No matter how many times this situation is explained, it is still spectacularly strange.All Blacks continue to innovateWhilst July saw northern hemisphere Test teams involved in hardcore fitness regimes, it was the All Blacks who once again showed the world why they are still far and away the team to beat come September. Richie McCaw’s exquisitely simple lineout move, which enabled the All Blacks to beat the Springboks at Ellis Park, was a reminder that strength of muscle is nowhere near as powerful as strength of mind.Over the line: Richie McCaw scores the key try against South Africa. Photo: Getty ImagesIn truth this isn’t the first time that the Springboks have been undone with this exact move, Samoa also did it in 2013, but it once again illustrates that speed of thought can undo even the fastest of lineout pods. Whilst some of the biggest lumps in rugby and arguably the finest lineout in the world geared up to defend a catch and maul on their five-metre line, the All Blacks had other ideas. Instead they threw short, soft and flat straight to an unmarked McCaw who carried straight over the line.We’ve seen plenty of pictures of flexed-up northern hemisphere players dragging tractor tyres across fields this summer, let’s hope fitness doesn’t take precedence over finesse.A more flexible Premiership could corner the marketJuly saw Taulupe Faletau’s move to Bath falter. The awkward, yet vitally important, issue of international release being the sticking point. Without full release the WRU won’t sanction the move and with full release Bath potentially face penalties from Premiership Rugby. Yet whilst Premiership Rugby’s stance on international release is laudable, and a reflection of the strength of their league, a simple relaxing of their release rule would provide them with a significant commercial advantage. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS However, Cooper’s finest social media faux pas remains his decision to wear a Toulon shirt, whilst having his picture taken with Mourad Boudjellal, when there were obviously doubts remaining over his desire to complete the move. Wearing the jersey and shaking the hand of the owner is rugby’s equivalent of placing the ring on the bride’s finger. If three months later you decide to run off with a better proposition, your new bride may feel justified in cutting up your clothes and lobbing them out of the bedroom window. And if reports in the media are to be believed Boudjellal is already sharpening his scissors.If Cooper does make the plane to England in September, on landing Michael Cheika would be wise to grab Cooper’s phone and bung it straight in the Thames.Sam Burgess chaosJuly once again saw the Sam Burgess ‘issue’ come up as England confirmed that they view Burgess as a centre, not a back-row forward. There is of course the argument that England have never had any doubt over Burgess’s positon within the squad, but that is largely academic when his main employer thinks otherwise. Whether or not England believe Burgess is a centre is futile when he played the last few weeks of the season in the back row.

Warren Gatland’s Lions 2021 coaching team

first_img Warren Gatland has named his Lions assistants for the South Africa tour (Getty Images) Warren Gatland’s Lions 2021 coaching teamWarren Gatland has named his coaching team for this summer’s British & Irish Lions 2021 tour to South Africa.Gatland, who has been head coach on the past two tours, will be assisted by Gregor Townsend (attack), Robin McBryde (forwards), Steve Tandy (defence) and Neil Jenkins (kicking).Scotland head coach Townsend and Jenkins, who is Wales’ kicking coach, were both part of the 1997 Lions team that beat the Springboks – the last time the tourists won in South Africa.This will be Jenkins’s fourth Lions tour as a coach and Townsend’s first. McBryde, who was part of Gatland’s Wales back-room team for more than a decade and is now in charge of Leinster’s forwards, toured with the Lions as a player in 2001 but this is also his first involvement as part of the coaching team, as it is for Scotland defence coach Tandy.Lions coaches McBryde, Tandy, Gatland, Townsend and Jenkins (Inpho)“It’s a really strong group and I’m excited to see what we can achieve together – I think we’ll all complement each other well in South Africa,” said Gatland.“A Lions tour is a unique challenge, so it’s important to have some continuity in the coaching group. Neil understands the exceptional demands that only a Lions tour can present, and we will benefit from his knowledge and experience.“But it’s also important to have new voices and a fresh perspective. Gregor is doing an excellent job in charge of Scotland and is an outstanding coach. He also understands the challenges of touring South Africa as a player and what it takes to win there, so I am extremely happy he will be part of the set-up.“Steve has made Scotland’s defence one of the most organised in world rugby – something we saw throughout the recent Six Nations. He’s clearly an intelligent coach and someone I am very much looking forward to working with.“Obviously Robin is someone who I know very well from our time together in Wales. He is an impressive and experienced coach who continues to have success with Leinster. I think he’ll be well suited to the Lions environment and I am sure he will do an excellent job with the forwards.”It has been widely reported that Steve Borthwick and Graham Rowntree – both involved in previous tours – were initially set to take on assistant roles with the Lions but withdrew last week.Gatland may add to his coaching team closer to the tour – perhaps someone like former Lions captain and current Ireland forwards coach Paul O’Connell – but Jenkins, McBryde, Tandy and Townsend are the core quartet of assistants.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight Jenkins is excited to be working with Townsend again, saying: “The Lions is a unique experience for players and coaches.“To bring together the best players from four countries and take on the Springboks in their own backyard is very exciting. To do it with one of my Lions team-mates from 24 years ago is incredibly special for me.”McBryde has called on the Lions to be “uncompromising” in the way they play and Tandy has spoken of the need for everyone to get “on the same page as quickly as possible” when it comes to defence.Townsend added: “To be involved as a player and now as a coach is truly humbling.“One of the great challenges of a Lions tour is to bring together players from four different countries, in a short space of time, and create an attacking threat that will cause the opposition problems. It’s something I am already looking forward to.”The Lions squad is due to be announced in early May and assemble in late June. Before heading to South Africa to take on the world champions, they will play a Test against Japan at BT Murrayfield on 26 June.This tour will be unlike any other due to the pandemic. The squad is set to operate in a ‘bubble’, as teams did in the Six Nations, and the tour itself is likely to be limited to one or two locations rather than moving around South Africa to minimise the risk of Covid-19.Gatland said: “Touring South Africa is always a huge challenge and clearly when the squad assembles in June to begin our preparations everything is going to look and feel a bit different to previous tours.“But having spoken to the coaches individually over the past few days we’re absolutely determined to make it an enjoyable, memorable and ultimately successful experience for everyone involved.”What do you think of Warren Gatland’s Lions 2021 coaching team?

Tarifa House / James & Mau

The terrain is located on a slope looking at the valley that dominates the Strait of the Gibraltar. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and soft winters, both humid, and very much influenced by the strong winds of Tarifa. The vernacular architecture of Andalusian “pueblos blancos”* with its patios and narrow streets reflects how the local building style adapts to the climate. Finally, the client expected us to propose to him not just a mere residential house but a complex area that would permit the development of several indoor and outdoor activities.Save this picture!© Erika Mayer As a result we proposed to condensate a “pueblo” on 300 m2 and turn it into a contemporary “cortijo”. The rules that determine the design are the same as the ones behind its inspiring prototypes. The first characteristic element of a “cortijo” or “pueblo” would be the wall that delimitates it. In this house we proposed an open and contemplative enclosure instead, created by a huge horizontal plan composed by a permeable, expanded steel mesh pergola. The latter permits to control the solar radiation both in summer and winter creating a microclimate in the enclosure. Next step is to explode the plan programme resulting in a series of volumes, just like the buildings or pavilions with different functions, which form a pueblo or “cortijo”. Save this picture!© Erika Mayer The pergola is perforated with as many holes as volumes, in order to insert these in them. The occupation of the patios is not total, leaving the possibility for a future colonization, after all, a pueblo is not built in a day. The same mesh used for the pergola dresses the volumes creating a continuity between the fake enclosure and these volumes. Furthermore, we created a variety of spaces constructed with specific emptiness, both inside and outside, which permits one to walk in the house through the infinity of paths, just like in a pueblo. These spaces between the volumes allow for cross ventilation causing airflow throughout the house in order to fight summer heat and humidity all year long. Save this picture!Floor Plan Finally, the construction entrusted to Infiniski, is based on modular prefabricated construction, sustainable materials and renewable energies like bio-/mass and solar thermal panels for both heating and hot water.Save this picture!© Erika MayerProject gallerySee allShow lessNanne de Ru Appointed Director of The BerlageArchitecture NewsAD Classics: Stephanuskirche / Alvar AaltoArchitecture Classics Share CopyAbout this officeJames & MauOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTarifaHousesSpainPublished on May 15, 2013Cite: “Tarifa House / James & Mau” 15 May 2013.

CBS cameraman freed after being held for a year by US military

first_img Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan Organisation News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today hailed the release on 11 April of CBS cameraman Abdul Ameer Younis Hussein, who had been held by the US military for a year at Camp Bucca detention centre and Abu Ghraib prison. His release had been expected ever since an Iraqi court ruled on 5 April that there was no evidence against him. Hussein was filming a ceremony at Mosul university on 5 April 2005 when he was shot in the hip by US troops during an exchange of shots with rebels. He was arrested on the spot and accused of recruiting for the insurgency. He was the last of several detained journalists to be released.————————————————————————–05.04.2006 Charges dropped against CBS cameraman after a year in US custodyReporters Without Borders today hailed the news of the imminent release of CBS cameraman Abdul Ameer Younis Hussein after being held by the Americans for a year at Camp Bucca detention centre and Abu Ghraib prison. The only journalist still detained in Iraq, Hussein was expected to be freed within a few days after an Iraqi court in Mosul ruled today there was no evidence against him. He was returned to Abu Ghraib prison after the hearing.“We condemn the slowness of the investigation,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is unacceptable that this cameraman spent a year in detention for nothing. The US authorities should have freed him immediately.” Reporters Without Borders had warned the US military they were making a big mistake when they arrested Hussein in April 2005.Hussein said: “When they caught me and called me a terrorist, I replied that I was not a terrorist, that I was a news correspondent.” But no one listened to him.After attending the hearing in Mosul, Hussein’s brother, Mohamed Younis Hussein, said: “I am very happy. It is incredible.”Hussein was filming a ceremony at Mosul university on 5 April 2005 when he was shot in the hip by US troops during a clash with rebels. He was arrested on the spot and accused of recruiting for the rebels. A US army release said he was being held because he could represent “a serious threat to the coalition forces.” According to CBS, the US military suspected him of being linked to the insurrection because of videotape footage found in his camera.Other journalists have been held without justification by the coalition forces, including two Reuters journalists who were freed in January after being held for several months without being charged.

Investigation: Local council hustings reviewed

first_imgHustings for City councillor candidates were held prior to OUSU Council on Wednesday of 1st Week in Magdalen College Auditorium. There were candidates present representing the Conservatives, the Greens, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Monster Raving Loony Party.Four out of the five candidates on the panel had either studied at, or are currently studying at Oxford. Of those currently studying at Oxford, Aled Jones is running in Holywell Ward representing Labour, while Maryam Ahmed is as a Conservative running in Carfax Ward.The husts were characterised by consensus, with candidates being quick to agree with the people who asked questions, making it somewhat difficult to distinguish between them. Oxford Covered Market, the County Council’s homelessness cuts and the City Council’s policies affecting student housing in Oxford were all discussed, as well as the Mad Hatter revealing his unorthodox policy for everyone to marry a foreigner within the year.In response to one question, all candidates, except for The Mad Hatter, were willing to identify as feminists.In summary, the panel appeared to largely agree, with all candidates expressing progressive political positions.The full C+ investigation can be found here.last_img read more
