Armitage is not the first, nor the last, to taunt the opposition

first_imgSouth Africa’s referee Jonathan Kaplan (L) whistles to confirm the first try of England’s winger Josh Lewsey (2ndR) as France’s winger Vincent Clerc (R) and France’s fullback Damien Traille look dejected during the rugby union World Cup 2007 semi final match England vs. France at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, north of Paris, 13 October 2007. AFP PHOTO / WILLIAM WEST (Photo credit should read WILLIAM WEST/AFP/Getty Images) A classless act in a classy sport?: Armitage’s actions show a lack of maturity rather than maliceBy Gavin MortimerWHAT’S ALL the fuss about? Or put another way: what’s so different about what Delon Armitage did to Clermont’s Brock James from what Josh Lewsey did to Damian Traille during the 2007 World Cup semi-final? Remember that? England’s erudite winger dotted down in the second minute, exploiting the Frenchman’s inexperience at full-back. As Lewsey got to his feet he patted Traille on the head. If that’s not taunting a beaten opponent then I don’t know what is.Yet did the rugby world go crackers? Did players, past and present, line up to have a pop shot at Lewsey? No. In fact one newspaper, the Independent, offered its readers the chance to buy a print of the moment, captured by one of its snappers, with the paper headlining the photo ‘Lewsey rubs it in’.Armitage’s gesture was no more offensive but now thanks to Twitter we live in an age of immediacy, where people can sound off before the paint is dry, so to speak .Which is what people did on Saturday afternoon. “Since when did the values of rugby include taunting an opponent in the act of scoring a try?” asked Scotland scrum-half Chris Cusiter. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Level playing field?: Lewsey’s actions were celebratedThis isn’t a defence of Armitage. For too long he’s indulged in prattish behaviour, be it pushing a doping officer, fighting in a nightclub or his lengthening roll call of reckless tackles. But is what he did to Brock James as he ran in Toulon’s try against Clermont really any worse than what was allegedly done to him a few minutes earlier? It’s said that Aurelien Rougierie patted Armitage on the head after Clermont had scored a try, while it’s also been claimed the former England full-back was subjected to ‘duck’ taunts by the opposition.Brian Moore tweeted that he would have chinned any player who had done that to him during his illustrious career, yet didn’t the feisty England hooker revel in his ability to wind up the French front-row with a few choice words at the set-piece? And if you search hard enough on Google, you’ll find a photo of ‘Pitbull’ in all his glory, mouthing off to a couple of crestfallen Welsh players in the aftermath of another England try during a Five Nations encounter. And on the subject of photos and taunts, what about the famous snap of Johnny Sexton screaming in the face of Munster rival Ronan O’Gara during Leinster’s victory at Croke Park in the 2009 Heineken Cup semi-final? Apparently Sexton, in the course of celebrating a Brian O’Driscoll try, was taking his revenge for a series of alleged sledges from O’Gara about his failure to drop a goal. But that was put down to that catch-all excuse of modern sport – ‘passion’.The greatest vulgarity committed by Armitage on Saturday wasn’t the taunt aimed at James, but the personal insult directed the way of Moore in response to his initial tweet. It’s too childish to bear repeating – and it’s since been deleted from Armitage’s account – but it demonstrated that Delon, fine rugby player that he is, still has some growing up to do.last_img read more

The Gerken Residence is 6,000 interior square feet occupying the 13th and 14th floors and 1,500 square feet of roof garden in a historic Tribeca building. The proposal explores shifting relationships of solid and void through the interplay of three nested prisms. At the entrance to the loft, a massive courtyard cut opens to the sky and city. This initial void is subsequently revealed to be bounded by a larger cut through the 14th floor, allowing the courtyard to be read as a floating glass mass, bridging the east and west sides of the plan, and opening the section between floors.Save this picture!© Naho KubotaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Naho KubotaThe larger cut also exposes the existing building core as a monolithic mass that grounds the choreography of void and solid dancing around it. This core is clad in custom pulled plaster panels, a technique developed through the controlled collision of a centuries-old fabrication technique with contemporary digital design language. The project is formally restrained, but spatially provocative through the improbability of the empty courtyard positioned as a positive mass of air and landscape within the loft.Save this picture!© Naho KubotaSave this picture!DetailsSave this picture!© Naho KubotaThe position of the courtyard within the larger void also creates new opportunities in which landscape might penetrate the boundary between interior and exterior.

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 17, 2016

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 16, 2016 Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleThe FFA Should Change Its NameNext articleIndiana, Home of the Cattle Drive Hoosier Ag Today After much bigger rain totals yesterday than anticipated, we do get back to dry, warm and windy weather today. The question will be: do we see enough drying today and tomorrow to see any harvest progress before the next front arrive. Helping the cause will be well above normal temps in the upper 70s and low 80s, lower humidity and strong breezes. Hindering the cause will be rain totals yesterday that were near or over an inch in spots. Still, we should be able to see good drying over the next 48 hours.Our next front impacts the state overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday, but initially will not have that much moisture with it. WE like plenty of clouds to come in overnight Tuesday and perhaps a few spits or sprinkles. But, as the front stalls over central Indiana on Wednesday, we expect the boundary to light up with rain and thunderstorm action, which will continue to develop right on into Thursday morning. WE like the best action from mid afternoon Wednesday through 10 am Thursday. Rain totals can be from .25” to 1.5” with coverage at nearly 80% of the state. The best coverage will be in central Indiana, where the biggest threat of thunderstorms or heavy rains will be. But…we do like rains in many parts of the state overall.Drier air is back for the balance of Thursday on through the weekend and early next week. However, temps do pull back and will be closer to normal in that period. Humidity values will drop. But with the strong rain potential, we think that there may be a bigger delay in getting back to the field as we finish this week. Still, with 5 full days, one has to think we can get something going over the weekend or early next week.The next system arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday of next week with rains of .25”-.5and coverage at 60%. This system is not as impressive, but still has the potential to bring another harvest slowdown closer to the 26th. Temps will remain near normal.In the extended window, we don’t see anything significant until the end of the 15 day window…with a system coming out of the central and southern plains around the 30thj and 31st. This will bring rains that can be from half to 1.5” and coverage should be around 100%. This looks like it could be a significant, slow moving rain event, one that can bring down some significantly cooler air behind it. Still, its timing means we may not have a significant frost threat until sometime into early November.

RSF Index 2018: UK remains one of the worst-ranked Western European countries

first_img As new parliament opens, RSF calls on the UK government to reverse negative press freedom trends News Worrying moves under May’s leadership lead to dropped UK ranking in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index Follow the news on United Kingdom April 25, 2018 RSF Index 2018: UK remains one of the worst-ranked Western European countries A continued heavy-handed approach towards the press – often in the name of national security – and a climate of hostility towards the media resulted in the UK keeping its status as one of the worst-ranked Western European countries in the Reporters Without Borders (RSF) 2018 World Press Freedom Index. News In RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, the UK failed to improve its ranking of 40th out of 180 countries. This places the UK between Trinidad and Tobago and Burkina Faso, and leaves it as one of the worst-ranked countries in Western Europe in terms of respect for press freedom.This follows the UK dropping two places in the 2017 World Press Freedom Index, a year that saw an overall decline in democracies around the world. It also represents a staggering decline for the UK of 18 places since the first World Press Freedom Index was published in 2002.Throughout the year, RSF highlighted a number of worrying moves against press freedom in the UK. An alarming proposal by the Law Commission to replace the Official Secrets Act with an updated ‘Espionage Act’ could make it easy to jail journalists as ‘spies’ for obtaining leaked information and see them jailed for up to 14 years. The government began to implement the Investigatory Powers Act with insufficient protection mechanisms for whistleblowers, journalists, and their sources. Home Secretary Amber Rudd repeatedly threatened to restrict encryption tools such as WhatsApp and announced plans to criminalise the repeated viewing of extremist content.Both the Conservative and Labour parties restricted journalists’ access to campaign events ahead of the June 2017 general election. BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg received extensive online abuse and threats, resulting in her being assigned bodyguards to cover the Labour Party conference in September. Offshore law firm Appleby have initiated legal proceedings against the BBC and The Guardianfor breach of confidence over the Paradise Papers source materials, making them the only two media outlets out of 96 in 67 countries that analysed the Paradise Papers to be taken to court.Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013 remained on the books, presenting cause for concern as the law’s punitive cost-shifting provision could hold publishers liable for the costs of all claims made against them, regardless of merit. Although after the end of the year the government announced that it would not implement Section 40 and would seek to repeal it, there have already been similar amendments proposed to the Data Protection Bill currently being deliberated in the House of Commons, making it clear that the divisive issue of press regulation continues to pose a threat to press freedom in the UK.“Maintaining our ranking of 40th out of 180 countries is nothing to be proud of, and puts us in the embarrassing position of having one of the worst records on press freedom in Western Europe. This is unacceptable for a country that plays an important international standard-setting role when it comes to human rights and fundamental freedoms. We must examine the longer-term trend of worrying moves to restrict press freedom, and hold the UK government to account”, said RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent.The UK maintained its poor ranking in the midst of an alarming year for press freedom globally, particularly in Europe, a region that has been shaken by the murders of two journalists in the space of five months – Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta and Jan Kuciak in Slovakia – as well as increased threats to investigative reporters and unprecedented verbal attacks on the media.Press contact: Rebecca Vincent, [email protected], +44 (0)7583 137751 United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Freedom of expression Help by sharing this information center_img RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts News April 26, 2017 Find out more United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Freedom of expression Organisation June 22, 2017 Find out morelast_img read more

Image credit: PfizerJacobs Engineering Group, a Pasadena-based company that is one of the world’s largest engineering businesses, recently won a bid to provide design and construction support for Pfizer’s new Global Biotechnology Center in China, worth $350 million.Pfizer is a major international pharmaceutical company.Jacobs will be responsible for the site’s overall design, which includes drug substance and central utility buildings, a laboratory, a warehouse and an aseptic fill and finish, according to the terms of the contract.The company, a fortune 500 firm founded over 50 years ago that employs over 60,000 people in 230 offices worldwide, used to be 100 percent headquartered in Pasadena when it started out, but branched out after growing, keeping many of its positions in Pasadena.Recently, 111 of those jobs left in Pasadena and are moving over to Dallas, Texas, according to an agenda posted online by the Dallas City Council.According to the agenda, Jacobs has been in discussions with officials in Dallas regarding moving its headquarters there for the several months. Dallas is currently trying to woo the company over with a grant worth $277,500.In an email statement made to the LA Times, Mendi Head, a spokesperson for Jacobs, said the company “is considering plans to move a portion of its corporate functions from its Pasadena location to Dallas later this year, pending a successful real estate process and final approvals for state and local economic development investments.”Head confirmed that Jacobs will keep some employees at the Pasadena office.Joe Vranich, the owner of Spectrum Location Solutions, is a consultant for companies who want to move across state lines, released a study in January of this year showing that over 1,600 had left California since 2007, many of them going to Texas, a state that has no state income tax.

It compares the percentages of single-family rental properties at that time with a decade later, in 2016, after the collapse and recovery back into a seller’s market.In some cities, Trulia found, the percentage of single-family properties compared to a decade earlier is quite a jump. In Detroit, Las Vegas, Memphis, and Fort Lauderdale, single-family rentals jumped by more than 9 percent in the ten years since 2006. Atlanta’s numbers climbed almost 9 percent.Detroit saw the biggest jump. In 2006, nearly 14.7 percent of single-family homes were rentals. Ten years later, the number was almost a full quarter of the city’s single-family properties.Nationally in 2006, 13.2 percent of all single-family homes were rentals. By 2014, that share had grown to 16.9 percent, Trulia reported. These numbers were buoyed by foreclosure sales that jumped from fewer than 350,000 annually before 2007 to a peak of nearly 1.3 million in 2010. Cities with the highest foreclosure rates also dealt with the deepest employment losses. Detroit and Las Vegas were hardest hit by this particular one-two punch. In Detroit, a foreclosure rate of 14.65 was spurred by an employment loss rate of almost 19 percent throughout the course of the recession. Las Vegas saw about half that employment loss rate, but a foreclosure rate of nearly 30 percent.However, in terms of investment return, Detroit has seen single-family home values shoot up 162.7 percent, while rents have remained flat, the report stated. Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Fla. Seems to have handed investors the best returns, though. From June 2011 to June 2018, Trulia reported, home values rose 89.6 percent, while rental rates on single-family homes rose 59 percent. Three metros, Charleston, Albany, and Rockville, Md., saw drops in the portion of rentals among all single-family homes. All markets were down in single-family rentals by less than a half-percent between 2006 and 2016.last_img read more
