Another look at the Samoa vs Wallaby bruisefest – The Big Hits

first_imgTuesday Jul 19, 2011 Another look at the Samoa vs Wallaby bruisefest – The Big Hits While the Wallabies have taken a lot of flak for their surprise loss to Samoa on the weekend, one of the reasons they looked so shell shocked out there was without a doubt the physical confrontation that the Samoans provided. Here’s a closer look at some of the bigger collisions. Pacific Island players and teams have always had the reputation of being big hitters. It’s fair to say that sometimes that hard-hitting approach lands them in hot water, as we’ve seen with Fiji (we’ll take a look at that tomorrow). Samoa’s victory over Australia however was a brilliant example of channelled aggression, intimidation, and very well organised defence. The Wallabies actually started the game well on that front, with center Pat McCabe making a massive tackle a few seconds into the match. That was pretty much where it ended for the hosts though, as after that it was all Samoa. Alesana Tuilagi on the wing was a stand-out, as he not only scored a try, but peppered debutant Rod Davies all day long. If he wasn’t running over him, he was smashing him, and he was loving every minute of it. It was quite a baptism of fire for the Reds star, who went from hero to zero within the space of a few weeks. That’s what makes international sport so great though. It’s a leveller. Davies had the right attitude after the game, acknowledging that things can only get better for him. “Obviously that is not the way I pictured my debut in Tests. The only way is up from here,” Davies said. “He’s pretty big, he’s pretty agile as well. Credit to him, he played a great game and got the points today,” he added, referring to 111kg wing Tuilagi. If you missed the match and only saw the highlights, this clip will hopefully give you some kind of indication as to how physical the approach of the Samoas was, not only in the tackle, but at the breakdown too. Yes, some of the hits are borderline, and even illegal in some cases, but the overall approach was to smash the Wallabies into submission, and they did just that. On a side note, we’d like to offer our deepest condolences to the friends and family of Queensland University player Halley Appleby, who died from injuries sustained on the rugby field this past weekend. He was 21 years old, and loved by many. May he rest in peace.

Located halfway between Casellina and the old town of Scandicci, the Nuovo Centro Civico is a new town centre designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Studio DA. The project is part of a wider urban plan commissioned by the Scandicci Council in 2003 and will transform the area from a remote satellite town into a renewed city hub. A series of buildings and a new tram line – connecting the town to the centre of Florence – have been built around a public piazza, focusing a series of activities from public to private, for the whole community. Save this picture!SketchThe new development at Scandicci is characterised by buildings that respect the scale of their surroundings and create a contemporary architectural language, that gives cohesion between all the diff erent typologies, whilst responding to their individual functions. The result is a restrained architectural aesthetic that directs attention towards the setting rather than the buildings themselves. Save this picture!© Alessandro CiampiThe choice of materials was fundamental to the process of creating an ensemble of buildings. A limited palette was selected for all buildings, including natural anodized aluminium, concrete, glass, stainless steel and terracotta. Terracotta has been used as a building material in Tuscany for centuries and so the new project continues this tradition in a contemporary way. The red tone of the terracotta, framed by natural anodized aluminium and inset within visibly expressed concrete frame, creates a language that places the traditional local materials in a new, fresh setting. Save this picture!© Alessandro CiampiThe mix of buildings that have been designed as part of the project include a cultural centre, a commercial building and residences. The cultural centre frames the eastern edge of the piazza and provides a multi-functional hall for seminars, conferences, exhibitions and concerts. It is designed for and operated by the local council and off ers completely fl exible spaces inside, allowing for future adaptation. It can work both independently or in tandem with the piazza outside to stimulate ideas about public activity. Save this picture!SketchThe commercial building is also fully adaptable inside and can therefore be used as open plan offi ce space or divided into smaller, cellular units. As the tallest structure in the new ensemble, it acts as a marker on the horizon, directing people to centre of the renewed Scandicci. Save this picture!© Alessandro CiampiAdopting a modular approach, the design for the residential building allowed for changes to the layout confi guration of the fl ats, even during construction, therefore catering for changing market conditions. Save this picture!Master PlanThe tramline that connects Scandicci to the centre of Florence in a just few stops is the key element towards urban integration. Creating such transport links encourages development and growth, while simultaneously limiting the dependance on cars and discouraging suburban sprawl. The project adopts a sustainable approach by including the installation of solar and photo-voltaic elements, as well as a green roof on the cultural building. The landscape concept with its linear arrangement of trees and benches alongside the tram line helps to unite the development, including the new parking area. Save this picture!© Alessandro CiampiRichard Rogers says, “We hope to have marked a change and indicated a new direction for the next 20 years of development of Scandicci. I believe that we have created something truly special and I hope that the legacy of this project will continue to develop for many years to come.” Ivan Harbour says, “A work of this magnitude is a great catalyst and already the town hall is responding to the work. Scandicci places people above all other design considerations. This should always be the aim behind a great urban regeneration project.” Save this picture!Concept and VisionErnesto Bartolini says “The success of this project is the result of a strong collaboration between RSHP’s urban vision for the future of Scandicci and the local pride. Citizens and politicians shared the vision presented by the architects and gave energy to the project throughout the 10 year process to make it happen in the best possible way.” Mayor of Scandicci says “Mayor Simone Gheri says, “The opening of this project marks the beginning of a new era for Scandicci. If we place ourselves in the middle of the square and appreciate the beauty of the new space and the harmony of the dimensions, we feel with real confi dence that our city has a great future.” Save this picture!SketchMassimo Mucci Beltrami, General Director of CMSA, says, “The belief that we were doing something unique gave us the strength to work with confi dence; we knew the quality and beauty of the buildings would overcome any diffi culties.

Covid-19: six Chinese defenders of press freedom still in detention

first_img News ChinaAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses Covid19ImprisonedCitizen-journalistsFreedom of expression News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Receive email alerts Organisation Follow the news on China Among the nine journalists and commentators arrested by the Chinese authorities since the start of the coronavirus epidemic, six of them remain detained to this day: documentary filmmaker Chen Jiaping, journalists Fang Bin, Zhang Zhan and Chen Qiushi, and press freedom defenders Cai Wei and Chen Mei.“Helping the public access information on this unprecedented health crisis is not a crime,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia desk, who urges Beijing “to immediately stop the repression against critical voices and free all the journalists and commentators who are still in detention.”Chen Jiaping, 50, was arrested on 5 March in Beijing for making a film about a political commentator critical of President Xi Jinping’s response to Covid-19 and is being held in “residential surveillance at a designated location” (RSDL), an official euphemism for incommunicado detention at one of China’s “black sites” where detainees are deprived from their rights and face the risk of being tortured. Cai Wei and Chen Mei, both 27, were arrested on 19 April and are being held in RSDL for reposting censored Covid-19 news articles and interviews on the open-source platform GitHub. Zhang Zhan, 37, a former lawyer turned journalist, was arrested in Wuhan on 15 May and remains detained in Shanghai after she commented on Twitter on the authorities’ countermeasures to contain the virus.Chen Qiushi, 34, and Fang Bin, 57, lawyer and businessman respectively, were arrested early February in Wuhan, the epicenter of the pandemic, for reporting on hospital oversaturation. Their whereabouts remain unknown.The authorities have also punished nearly 900 internet users for sharing information on the virus, the latest of whom is a 55-year-old woman who was detained for seven days for sharing information described by the authorities as “false rumors”. From the start of the Covid-19 epidemic, Chinese authorities have gone to work silencing media and social media as well as launching a global disinformation campaign to deflect criticism that media censorship allowed the virus to spread without public knowledge weeks before the government took action.China ranks 177th out of 180 in the 2020 RSF World Press Freedom Index and is the biggest prison in the world for journalists, with at least 113 detained or missing according to the most recent count made by RSF.

Home sales increased in Boston, Philadelphia, Richmond, St. Louis, Dallas, and San Francisco, but fell in Cleveland and Kansas City. Weather conditions slowed home construction in New York, Philadelphia, and Cleveland and caused Boston to have low levels of inventory. The report notes that lack of desirable lots and low inventory levels continue to slow the market.Philadelphia, Boston, and New York all saw relative growth. All six New England states saw an increase in single-family home sales at the end of December 2014. In Massachusetts, December was only the second month, of the past six, with a year-over-year increase in home sales, while prices have increased 26 out of the last 27 months. The New York District’s housing markets have strengthened somewhat in early 2015. Rents across the rest of the District are up roughly 2 percent over the past year. Housing markets across the rest of New York State and New Jersey have mostly been sluggish, in part due to the inclement weather. Although home sales are increasing rapidly in Philadelphia, growth is slower in the rest of the state.Residential real estate activity increased moderately in the Richmond district. Realtors in Virginia and North Carolina reported increased sales, especially for higher end homes in North Carolina. Home sales increased in the St. Louis district on a year-over-year basis. Compared with the same period in 2013, December 2014 monthly home sales were up 5 percent in Louisville, 11 percent in Little Rock, and 29 percent in St. Louis.Home sales rose in Dallas, although reports on the pace of growth were mixed. Contacts in Dallas-Fort Worth noted a strong, earlier-than-normal pickup in traffic and sales, while demand in Houston held steady. Home prices continued to edge upward in this district.Home sales fell in Cleveland and Kansas City. Cleveland single-family home sales for all of 2014 were down slightly below last year, while the average sale price rose 4 percent. Kansas City residential sales decreased modestly in part to seasonal sale patterns and low inventory. Sale of low and medium priced homes continued to outpace sales of higher priced homes in the city.center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Ratings Agency Publishes Report on Freddie Mac Loan Loss Data Next: Lack of Credit Availability, Low Inventory Challenging Housing Market Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Market Conditions Mixed in Fed’s Latest Beige Book Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily March 4, 2015 837 Views Market Conditions Mixed in Fed’s Latest Beige Book Share Save Subscribelast_img read more
