first_imgMonday Aug 12, 2019 Wales first choice 10 struck by injury raises questions about RWC warm up games With Wales flyhalf Gareth Anscombe ruled out of the World Cup after suffering an ACL injury against England on Sunday, fans have questioned whether these intense warm up games are completely necessary.ADVERTISEMENTThe 28-year-old hobbled off the field towards the end of the first half of the 33-19 defeat, after initially sustaining the knee injury during the first quarter of the match. The Kiwi has now has had his World Cup hopes dashed after establishing himself as Warren Gatland’s first choice 10.The Test at Twickenham was the first of four warm up games for the Grand Slam champions, with England travelling to the Principality Stadium next weekend, before two Tests against Ireland.Leading up to these matches, there had been questions over how necessary they were, and the risk of injuries. After only one match, Anscombe has been the first tragic casualty.Some fans are saying that these matches should be played against Tier 2 nations or regional sides, where they will not be as intense. Two consecutive test matches against England will always be full-blooded and injuries are almost an inevitability, particularly as players are vying for selection and Gatland naming a full-strength side.This sees Gatland’s squad take a major hit for second consecutive World Cup after both Leigh Halfpenny and Rhys Webb were ruled out in 2015 during the warm up games. However, Wales only played two tests against Ireland in 2015, and one against Italy, which is a much easier workload.ADVERTISEMENTIreland have faced similar troubles over the past few days, with Joey Carbery suffering an injury against Italy at the weekend which will put him out for six weeks.Some fans have said that there are so many matches this time around as it raises money, while player welfare has not been taken into account.However, these games are crucial to avoid any rustiness for northern hemisphere sides, particularly as the southern hemisphere sides are competing in the Rugby Championship and the Pacific Nations Cup.ADVERTISEMENTBut it is the volume of these matches that is being questioned, as well as the quality of opposition, especially for Wales. Fans will be hoping that Anscombe’s injury is the only major setback they suffer.A complete joke exactly why we don’t play these meaningless games— Nick Gulliford (@NGulliford) August 12, 2019Well done all you supporters of these warm up matches. A man’s dream crushed. How many more. It happened four years ago and it is hapeming again— Richard Edwards (@rae3918) August 12, 2019 this opens the door for Dan Biggar to start at fly-half throughout the World Cup, this is particularly tough for Anscombe after establishing himself as Wales’ starting 10 during the Six Nations. Not only that, but he has made the move to the Ospreys this season, and this may majorly reduce his playing time.It is one game down, three to go for Welsh fans, as they hope every player gets through them unscathed.Wales post match press conference: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

The object of our renovation work is a house located in Vincennes, within the radius which surrounds the Château de Vincennes, a radius monitored by architects of historical monuments. Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe building seems to have remained largely in its original state since the beginning of the 20th century, and has not been renovated at all for at least thirty years. The distribution of spaces was very awkward, and any rapport between the house and the garden was nonexistent. In regards to an energy plan there was no insulation (neither within the walls nor within the attic spaces), and only single, non-waterproofed windows. The means of heating the house being individual gas burners. Almost a caricature.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaIn brief, the project consisted of:- the demolition of annexes damaged beyond repairSave this picture!© Sergio Grazia- the completion in their place of an RDC extension around the preserved area of the house, which will open entirely upon the garden by means of a large bay windowSave this picture!© Sergio Grazia- the general overhaul of the house  with restoration of the cellar and attic spacesSave this picture!© Sergio GraziaIf the successful execution of a high-efficiency project, one that sought low emission levels, was in clear evidence of being pursued, we never forgot the primary aim of an architect that is to conceive of a beautiful structure with quality spaces in which people feel good. There is also the fact that a project seeking high-efficiency is not something readily apparent, that all the elements contributing to such efficiency are almost invisible, yet remain perceptible.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaAccording to set buying and selling property regulations the house originally consisted of an inhabitable 120m², but in fact only 90m² were livable. After the completion of work, thanks to attic spaces, a semi-recessed basement, and an extension, there will be approximately 220m² in which to live.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe heating is geothermal, with the installation of a heat pump.

Haeccity Studio Architecture, a Vancouver-based practice, recently completed a major revitalization of a 3-storey, wood-framed 1920s character building that accommodates 19 rental units. The historic building located at 2930 Cambie Street maintains its modest yet engaging street presence along Cambie Corridor, one of the city’s major arterial routes.Save this picture!© Krista Jahnke“We wanted to give new life to an old building, while simultaneously honouring its previous contribution to the city,” explains Travis Hanks, Haeccity Principal, “At a time when buildings are disappearing along the Cambie Corridor, we had an opportunity to ensure these homes would flourish into a new era.”Save this picture!© Krista JahnkeThe project involved a comprehensive upgrade of all systems and interiors, including a more effective suite layout that resulted in an additional 5 units and new shared amenity spaces. All the units were updated to align with contemporary lifestyles, complete with modern fixtures and built-ins.Save this picture!© Krista JahnkeFor nearly a 100 years, passersby on Cambie could look through a celebrated front entry to a stair leading directly to upper levels. This common Vancouver feature, however, poses a number of serious challenges in terms of egress, accessibility, and life safety. To extend the building’s life, a solution emerged in the form of a clearly demarcated “insertion” into the character structure, a new modern stair and lobby that stood in clear distinction to its heritage context. Turning on its head the notion of history as a black and white photo, the new, modern stair intervention is rendered in neutral black and white, leaving the existing construction to endure in living colour.Save this picture!DiagramAs this was the first renovation in the building’s history, a large accumulation of antiquated building components were discovered – a kind of architectural archive of obsolete building technologies. The design team realized early on the importance of finding a meaningful way to physically and conceptually embed these objects and materials in the building’s new expression.Save this picture!© Krista Jahnke“These components convey traces of the building’s history, while preserving the narratives of its previous inhabitants,” says Shirley Shen, Haeccity Co-founder, “The idea of retaining and reusing the materials with ingenuity guided the renovation’s design.”Save this picture!© Krista JahnkePlaster on lathe, inlaid oak flooring, cast iron tubs, and wood panel doors were all refurbished in place. Areas that were too damaged to remain were carefully removed, stored, and up- cycled into new installations. Pre-electric iceboxes became workshop cabinets; concrete laundry sinks became planters; old-growth douglas fir was crafted into custom furniture. Cast iron furnace doors, single-hung window weights, antique lock sets, brass doorknobs, doorbells and hardware were all preserved, and integrated back into the building.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Lighthouse / Lundgaard & Tranberg ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPolycor Office / Hatem+D architecture / Etienne Bernier ArchitecteSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Vancouver, British Columbia, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgRunning shirt inspired the ideaThe idea for the wall of plaques came from running shirts Cure Leukaemia produced in 2016 which were covered with donated names and this was followed with a special Wolves shirt in support of Carl Ikeme and a Crystal Palace shirt in support of Geoff Thomas.Cure Leukaemia CEO James McLaughlin, who has himself donated a plaque said:“We saw how popular the Donate Your Name concept was with the shirts and we felt the model could also transfer to a wall at the Centre. Once this wall is filled it will fund one of our nurses and the hope is that it will remain full indefinitely and provide a form of regular donation for Cure Leukaemia.”There are 1,000 spaces for ‘Donate Your Name’ plaques, and three options for donating:A one-off donation of £150 for three yearsThree separate £50 donations totalling £150 spread over three yearsA £65 donation for one year, with the option to renew in 2020. Messages of hope and memory[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”19″ display=”basic_imagebrowser”] Many people have chosen to remember a family member on wall, including John Bray, from the BBC, whose plaque in memory of his father reads: ‘Clive Bray – our special Wolves fan’.Several former leukaemia patients have also purchased plaques, including Jenna Ostrowski, whose reads ‘Eternally thankful’; ‘CL You Saved Me’ from Brooke Evans, and ‘Forever thankful’ from Jaymz Goodman.Jane Young donated in her daughter’s name with the message: ‘Thank you for mending Lizzie Dean’.Cure Leukaemia Chairman Ian Allen and his wife Sarah have donated as has the charity’s Co-Founder Graham Silk, a former patient himself, whose plaque references Julie Arrazi, the first ever nurse funded by Cure Leukaemia who treated him.Other key supporters have donated their name, including Doug McKinnon, with the Latin words ‘Non desistas non exieris’ (‘Never giveup, never surrender’).As well as support from Wolverhampton Wanderers players and staff, Wolves’ fans are also in evidence amongst the plaques.Mick Goater and CL Champion Jess Hempshall have donated and travelled all the way from Yorkshire to appear in the photo. Jess said:“The charity saved the life of my friend Fiona so I was only too happy to donate. I really hope people fill the wall as soon as possible because these fantastic nurses are saving lives and it is great to play your part.” More on fundraising from donating namesComedian raises funds for cat charity with surreal cat name prints (5 February 2018)Social media users urged to donate their profile during Refugee Week (1 June 2009)Ian Rankin auctions thriller’s character name for charity (28 December 2001) Howard Lake | 28 May 2019 | News  195 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

They can choose to donate the name for a one or three-year period, after which they will have the opportunity to keep the plaque in place with a further donation.The donor wall was designed by Creative agency OWB Creative, which also sponsored 20 plaques in the names of staff that work on the ground floor of the Centre.Well-known donors who have donated their names include Watford goalkeeper and Cure Leukaemia Patron Ben Foster, ex-England and Wolves footballer, Patron and former patient Geoff Thomas and Chief Executive of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Paul Faulkner who is also a Trustee of the charity. To mark World Blood Cancer Day Cure Leukaemia has unveiled a wall of plaques to the first 100 supporters who have ‘donated their name’.The wall of plaques is at the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, a globally significant site of leukaemia research.The Cure Leukaemia Family wall allows supporters of the charity to display a lasting reminder of their backing for the charity by purchasing a plaque, with the aim of funding a specialist research nurse for one year. These nurses connect blood cancer patients that have exhausted standard treatment with potentially life-saving drugs through clinical trials. Many of the one hundred plaques already donated are from patients or families that have benefitted from these treatments.last_img read more

first_imgAfter working since July without a contract, more than 900 Rockford Public School workers from American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees locals 692, 3210 and 1275 will be going on a three-day strike March 15-17. These locals represent the school paraprofessionals, nutritionists and bus drivers, respectively.Workers World sat down with Pamela Hillyer, an AFSCME Local 692 paraprofessional worker, to hear from the rank and file about what led to the vote for a strike and what’s at stake for the workers.Workers World: What has the school district done to the workers?Pamela Hillyer: The main issue is around rising health care premiums that the school district is forcing on us, which equates to a substantial cut in our wages. The increased premiums would mean an approximately 1,145 percent rise in health care costs over the last three years, from roughly $43 to $544 every month. While the school district has said that they have gone “to great lengths to make sure employees came out ahead,” they have instead refused to negotiate with us and insist on the drastic attack on our health care. We are already grossly underpaid skilled workers.WW: Why did the union decide to strike?PH: The school district has refused to compromise or even have a genuine dialogue with the union about the proposed contract. After the last negotiation meeting, where the district put forth the same contract as their supposed “best and final offer,” the union knew it was time to increase pressure on the district to come to a fair compromise.Here is the direct quote from AFSCME on the decision: “The elected AFSCME Bargaining Committee, from the paraprofessionals [to] bus drivers and nutritionists service workers, subsequently decided to conduct a three-day strike to send a strong message to the District that the members are frustrated with the extremely harsh proposal that the District imposed on employees in violation of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act. AFSCME has filed an unfair labor practice with the Labor Board over this violation of law.”WW: Will you continue striking if the workers’ needs aren’t met?PH: The union has said they will do rolling strikes until they win a fair contract. It’s the only thing that makes sense, because why would we go on strike for three days, then give up if it doesn’t work immediately? We will be stuck with this contract for the next three years and struggling to afford health care.WW: How has the school district responded to the strike?PH: The superintendent, Ehren Jarrett, says he respects us, while at the same time demonizing us and twisting the facts in an attempt to pit the community against the union.WW: How is the school providing services during the strike? Are they bringing in scabs?PH: They might have the teachers take on the paraprofessionals’ positions, but if they do, the teachers’ union will be filing grievances. For the nutritionists, Auburn High School’s administration suggested to their gifted academy program students and parents that they volunteer to give out meals for supposed college credit. They won’t be able to provide transportation to the students, so they are putting it on the parents to get their children to and from school every day.WW: What has been the community’s response, and are there any other groups supporting you?PH: Many parents are confused and upset. Thousands of students will be without transportation and won’t receive the amount of care they need. A lot of confusion comes from the misleading information sent out by the school district, painting us as greedy. But we’ve also gotten help from youth activists, who are planning a solidarity march on March 14. They will gather at 201 7th Street at 5:15 p.m., then march to join a rally outside of the school administration building at 501 7th Street.WW: How will the union win?PH: The district is going to realize that they need us. The schools can’t properly function without us — whether we’re driving the buses, serving the food or taking care of students with special needs. They can try to continue to refuse any discussion, but eventually they are going to be pressured into a compromise, because we’re necessary to ensure a safe, positive learning environment.The following schools, and possibly more, will have picket lines: Auburn High School, East High School, Guilford High School, Jefferson High School, West Middle School, Nashold Elementary, Rolling Green Elementary, Fairview Early Childhood Center and Summerdale Early Childhood Center. We urge all our Rockford readers to get out and show solidarity with RPS workers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgNews October 23, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor’s murder: fact-finding visit raises doubts about official version Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Reporters Without Borders went to Togliatti (Volga) on 16-17 October to lookinto the 9 October killing of Alexei Sidorov, the editor of the regionalnewspaper Toliattinskoye Obosrenie. The organisation is worried by the waythe authorities have conducted the investigation, making contradictorystatements and prematurely ruling out any possibility that the murder waslinked to Sidorov’s work. News June 2, 2021 Find out more News News RSF_en BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation to go further Reporters Without Borders today raised doubts about official accounts of the 9 October murder of newspaper editor Alexei Sidorov in Togliatti (Volga) after it carried out a fact-finding visit to Togliatti and Samara on 16-17 October with the Glasnost Defence Foundation, a Russian press freedom group.The organisation is concerned at the course which the official investigations have taken. The authorities have already dismissed the possibility of a work-related killing and other important leads on grounds that appear inadequate to Reporters Without Borders. Contradictory statements by officials also indicate that the enquiries are being conducted with a lack of professionalism. The organisation believes that no hypothesis should be ruled out at this early stage and it fears international attention may have encouraged investigators to be rash.The senior staff of the regional newspaper that Sidorov edited, Toliattinskoye Obosrenie, believe that the murder was linked to his work as a journalist and they dismiss the official version that his death was a case of unpremeditated, everyday violence. A suspect accused of killing Sidorov in a street brawl has been held by the authorities since 12 October. Reporters Without Borders notes that those responsible for killing the newspaper’s previous editor, Valery Ivanov, in April 2002 have still not been identified and brought to justice. The organisation calls on the Russian Federation’s public prosecutor, Vladimir Ustinov, to ensure that all leads are considered with great care and that investigators resist the temptation to declare the case closed in an attempt to satisfy international opinion, without exploring all its ins and outs.Sidorov, 31, was stabbed by two men in his apartment building’s parking lot at around 10:00 pm on 9 October. He died a few minutes later in his wife’s arms. The murder weapon was a “zatochka,” a home-made knife of the kind used in prisons, made from a piece metal. Sidorov’s predecessor as editor, Ivanov, died in similar circumstances on 29 April 2002. Sidorov had established favourable relations with the car-maker, AvtoVaz, which is the engine of the region’s economy and which supported the newspaper financially. Before becoming editor, he had been an investigative journalist with the newspaper. He had resumed his investigations into the crime world a few weeks before his death, but neither his colleagues nor his wife know what exactly he was working on.Contradictory official statementsSerious doubt has been cast on the professionalism of the investigation by the contradictory official statements made between 15 and 17 October about the arrests of one or several suspects.Announcing the arrests of a mechanic and an unemployed person on 15 October, the head of the interior ministry in the Volga region, Vladimir Shcherbakov, said that the case was solved and that it was unrelated to Sidorov’s work. The deputy prosecutor of Samara and prosecutor of the city of Togliatti, Evgeni Novozhilov, denied this the next day, saying that two other hypotheses were being considered in addition to unpremeditated violence, namely, that the murder was linked to Sidorov’s work and the possibility that it connected with the newspaper’s proposed sale. The federal inspector for the Samara region, Andrey Kogtev, reiterated on 17 October that two suspects had been arrested. On the afternoon of the same day, Samara prosecutor Alexandre Efremov said the case was solved. This was repeated by interior minister Boris Gryzlov. The official versionThe name of the principal detained suspect was revealed on 18 October. Evgeny Mayninger, a Togliatti welder held since 12 October was accused of killing Sidorov in a brawl. He allegedly encountered Sidorov by chance and asked for a loan of money to buy vodka. Sidorov supposedly refused, a fight broke out, Mayninger stabbed him several times and fled, throwing the knife away in the forest. He allegedly confessed. The identity of the two other suspects who had reportedly been arrested was not revealed.The view of the newspaper’s staffThe Toliattinskoye Obosrenie staff have said several times that they are convinced that the murder was linked to Sidorov’s work. The day after the murder, the newspaper published a report spelling out four possible hypotheses.The first two hypotheses were that the murder could have been linked with either of two articles published in June and July 2003. One was about a conflict between a criminal, Igor Fillipov, and a Samara businessman, Vladimir Zaharchenko. The other was about a gang led by local crime boss Igor Sirotenko. Fillipov might have been taking revenge on the newspaper for reporting that he had tried to attack his adversary and had lost some of his possessions after being interrogated by police. Sirotenko had threatened to sue the newspaper over the other article and he demanded a retraction. The two criminals may also have got together to eliminate Sidorov.The third hypothesis was that Sidorov may had have had dangerous information such as, for example, the location of the hideout of wanted criminal Alexandre Belyakin. Finally, the newspaper thought the murder may also have been linked to the control of Toliattinskoye Obosrenie, as the management had just turned down an offer to buy the newspaper.The staff said they were “hard put to believe the official version” for several reasons. When a reconstruction of the killing was held on the evening of 17 October, the newspaper’s journalists noted that the suspect made a mistake as regards the spot where it took place. At the same time, the suspect’s family has on several occasions said he was not an aggressive type and that he had been at home until about 10 pm, which was when the killing occurred. The newspaper’s staff also maintain that, knowing Sidorov, it is impossible to imagine him taking part in the kind of brawl described by the investigators.

September 30, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters without Borders Germany calls on Deutsche Welle Director General to change strategy on China Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more The executive director of Reporters without Borders Germany, Christian Mihr, states: “We highly condemn the co-operation agreement between Deutsche Welle and the Chinese State broadcaster CCTV.” He continues: “This co-operation is incompatible with Deutsche Welle`s statutory mission as CCTV is part of the repressive apparatus directed against Chinese journalists. Deutsche Welle should not try to increase its reach in China at the expense of freedom of the press. As a member of the Reporters without Borders Germany board of trustees, we urgently call on Peter Limbourg to reconsider his decision.”In a press release dated September 4, Deutsche Welle announced its intention to work with CCTV in the future. According to the statement, Deutsche Welle will produce music and business-related content together with CCTV. In addition, CCTV will broadcast an adaptation of Deutsche Welle`s lifestyle magazine Euromaxx (see: IS A FUNDAMENTAL PILLAR OF CHINESE STATE PROPAGANDACCTV is China`s largest television broadcaster. At the organisational level, CCTV forms part of China`s State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television. Consequently, CCTV is directly connected to the government and plays a fundamental role in Chinese state propaganda. In fact, regulations force all other Chinese TV stations to broadcast CCTV`s 7pm main evening news.During the last few months, CCTV has repeatedly broadcast “forced confessions” (see: During these broadcasts, critical journalists and bloggers were made to publicly criticise their own behaviour. On May 8, this was even done to a Chinese freelancer working for Deutsche Welle – to Gao Yu. The 70-year-old journalist has been held in criminal detention in China since she was arrested at the end of April (see: WITHOUT BORDERS GERMANY`S LETTER TO PETER LIMBOURGOn September 16, Reporters without Borders Germany wrote to Peter Limbourg, the general director of Deutsche Welle, calling on him to answer a number of questions concerning Deutsche Welle`s cooperation with CCTV. This letter, available in German, can be accessed under: His answer is available in German under Welle describes the co-operation agreement with CCTV as a dialogue. However, numerous previous cases experienced by Reporters without Borders demonstrate that similar forms of communication and co-operation have usually been skilfully put to work for state propaganda. Reporters without Borders Germany doubts, that Deutsche Welle will be able to avoid such instrumentalisation.Despite Peter Limbourg’s answer, certain questions remain unanswered:How have the agreements between Deutsche Welle and CCTV been formulated? What exactly has been agreed to? Will Deutsche Welle supply content for CCTV and enable its Chinese partner to select what it wishes to broadcast? Or will CCTV have to broadcast all of Deutsche Welle`s contributions? How would this affect, for example, a China-critical programme on the artist Ai Weiwei? Could CCTV decide to reject such a programme?Furthermore, it is still unclear why Su Yutong, who was working on Deutsche Welles`s China programme, was dismissed. Officially, she is said to have publicised internal matters. However, Reporters without Borders Germany is extremely worried that Su Yutong`s dismissal is related to Deutsche Welles`s new approach in its China-programme.Our letter to Peter Limbourg included an invitation to participate in a panel discussion organised by Reporters without Borders Germany on “The Chinese media” aimed at clarifying these questions. Peter Limbourg made no mention of our invitation in his letter of response. News to go furtherlast_img
