Back outlines where Eddie Jones must go from here

first_imgThursday Apr 2, 2020 Back outlines where Eddie Jones must go from here Former Rugby World Cup winner Neil Back has said that Eddie Jones must give players “greater ownership” going forward. This comes after the England head coach signed a new contract to remain in charge until the 2023 RWC in France.ADVERTISEMENTComing off a loss in the final last November to South Africa and a decent showing in the Six Nations, albeit with a disappointing opening defeat to France, everything on the field suggested Jones would stay. The negative attention that he sometimes draws was a reason, however, why the Rugby Football Union may have been tentative.But now that the Australian’s future is secure for another three years, Back has outlined what he must do to improve upon the second place finish in Japan.The 66-cap England flanker highlighted the three steps that should be taken to ensure greater leadership amongst the players. He wrote on Twitter:“1 Nominate ‘Leaders’ to identify key areas that are critical to their collective success 2 The players responsible for acting in those areas need to establish their own standards 3 Once everyone is happy those minimum standards would achieve their aims the ‘Leaders’ & EJ sign off.”Back, who captained England on four occasions himself, would have learned a lot from being a part of Sir Clive Woodward’s England camp in 2003, which could be seen as the blueprint for how an elite team should function, certainly one from English rugby.Of the 15 players that started the RWC final in 2003, eight of them had or would go on to captain England, and a further six members of the bench would too. While the likes of Will Greenwood and Richard Hill never captained England, they were still decidedly influential.ADVERTISEMENTPerhaps the biggest distinction between the finalists in 2019 and 2003 is the number of leaders within the team, although Woodward’s team could be seen as an exceptional group. But this is something that is as important off the field as it is on it.With quite a young team in Japan, the core of the squad that came so close to RWC glory are still playing for England, which provides an opportunity to hand more responsibility to them.

Originally owned by our client’s grandmother, this house in the quiet Sydney beachside suburb of Maroubra, is well located and well built. But it had been designed seventy years ago, in a way that rendered it totally unsuitable for a young family today. Typical of the post-war, mass built semi detached houses in the area, it sat on a small block, had tiny rooms, a single bathroom, separate living, cooking and dining areas, and was on a sloping block, with no connection to the outside.Save this picture!© Luc RemondSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Luc RemondThe typical design solution in the area is to build off the back of the existing dwelling, two storeys high, running boundary to boundary. The problem with this is it creates a major disconnect between the house and backyard. The sun goes from the back from midday onwards, rendering the garden dark, damp and ultimately, unusable. Additionally, you block solar access from midday onwards which makes for a dark, damp and unappealing yard that is difficult to use.Save this picture!© Luc RemondFirstly, we wanted regain the connection to the outside. So we brought the living areas down from the existing house level, and levelled the ground so that the new addition and the outdoors beyond sit at the same level. Second, we wanted to capture more sunlight, particularly in winter. So we inserted a courtyard between the existing house and the new addition and extended the addition further into the backyard. By doing this we sacrificed some open space at the rear of the property, which the clients were happy to do as they are minutes from the beach and large community parklands. The result is that the courtyard is still in sun well past 3 o’clock in the afternoon, even in mid winter.Save this picture!© Luc RemondA galley style kitchen connects into the rear of the old house and looks into the courtyard outside. The kitchen is linked to the living and dining areas of the home by a concrete bench that extends the full length of the living space. The bench provides out-of-sight storage for AV equipment, books, toys and firewood below as well as providing additional seating for the living area. It connects the outdoors and indoors, connecting the rear yard to the inside through the large, pivoting eastern windows – which the dog loves to use as a short-cut to the garden outside!Save this picture!© Luc RemondThe design relies on passive heating and cooling through the use of thermal mass in the concrete floor and insulated, double brick walls. Hoods on the north facing windows block the summer sun whilst allowing winter sun to heat the exposed concrete floor. The windows are designed for maximum flexibility so as to control the level of natural ventilation, particularly the prevailing north-easterly breezes in summer. The eastern windows have been designed so that they can be held at open in 10cm increments to control and direct the breeze as desired throughout the year.Save this picture!© Luc RemondHonest, cost-effective and low maintenance materials were used throughout – bricks were recycled from the original dwelling, exposed plywood ceilings and matching plywood joinery with polished concrete floor and benches.Save this picture!© Luc RemondWe kept the character of the existing house intact, with all skirtings, cornices and ceiling mouldings retained in their original form. The existing cypress pine floors have been stained black and a new bathroom has been inserted at the entry to the old house. The new entrance is now located at the junction of the old and new parts of the house, providing a clear divide between the public and private areas of the house. We have also added a laundry and plenty of storage, hidden behind plywood panels, opposite the new entrance.Save this picture!SectionThe design also includes a second storey, which is yet to be built. We obtained planning approval for it at the same time as the rest of the development and all the required structure has already been placed in walls/ground to accept the upper floor once the clients are ready. Apart from cost savings down the line, the inconvenience will be greatly reduced.Save this picture!© Luc RemondProject gallerySee allShow lessCosmos Intime / L’EAU design + Kim Dong-jinSelected ProjectsCall for Submissions: Congress Square RedesignCall for Submissions Sharelast_img read more

The house is located in Hamamatsu, a city on the southern coast of Central Japan, known for its warm climate. The house is a detached extension of an existing house built in 1983. Our aim was to create a whole, old and new altogether rather than emphasizing the contrast between the two. Linear volumes stretching in the east-west direction, spread over the site leaving spaces in between, which are the terraces and gardens. The group of roofs relate to that of the existing house, creating a sense of continuation.Save this picture!© Daici AnoSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Daici AnoThe house is conceived of familiar wood construction elements composed in a slightly unfamiliar way: furniture/storage units, beams, studs, and the roof. In between the furniture units are sliding windows and doors that can be fully opened, which connect the detached interior spaces, and the existing house together. The roof is lifted up from the beams, making the indoor somewhat like covered outdoor space. The project is an attempt to seek new relationships between indoor and outdoor, old and new.Save this picture!© Daici AnoProject gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: After Schengen European Borders by Ignacio EvangelistaExhibitionreSITE 2017: In/visible CityConference Share CopyHouses•Japan Japan 2016 Area:  125 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeARII IRIE ARCHITECTSOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJapanPublished on April 13, 2017Cite: “House with Gardens and Roofs / ARII IRIE ARCHITECTS” 12 Apr 2017.

Clothes Aid animation encourages January clear-out

first_img Clothes Aid is using an animation to encourage people to have a January clear out of their wardrobes.#ClothingStory illustrates what happens to clothing when it is donated, and was created to answer queries from the public about where the clothing donated to Clothes Aid specifically goes after it has been collected.The film tells the story through two example families: one that goes through the process of donating their clothing in the UK, and another family in an Eastern European second hand shop, which buys those same unwanted clothes a few weeks later. It also shows the step-by-step process to donate a bag of unwanted clothing to Clothes Aid.Clothes Aid: Our #ClothingStory from Clothes Aid on Vimeo.The charity is also offering a prize draw with Brantano & Jones Bootmaker, giving people a chance to win a £50 voucher if they donate a bag of unwanted clothing this month and post a photograph of themselves on Twitter or Facebook with their bag and the #ClothingStory hashtag,Anyone who phones the Clothes Aid hotline (020 7288 8545) to book a clothing collection, and quotes the #ClothingStory hashtag will also be added to the free prize draw.Clothes Aid business manager, Michael Lomotey said:“We are often asked about the lifecycle of people’s unwanted clothes, so we’re delighted to launch the #ClothingStory film, which shows the very simple process and journey that they go on from being bought, donated in the UK and then bought again in Eastern Europe.“We’re urging people up and down the country to have a clear out this January and donate a bag of their unwanted clothes to Clothes Aid. Because the less clothing that goes into landfill, the more money we can raise for our six partner UK charities.”The six partner UK charities are: Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), NSPCC, Macmillan, Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA), Make-A-Wish® UK and Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice.

RSF’s denounces Singapore’s disregard of press freedom ahead of its Universal Periodic Review

first_imgNews A request by the New Naratif website to be registered as Singaporean company was rejected outright by the authorities in 2018. December 6, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has sent its evaluation of the current situation in Singapore to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva ahead of Singapore’s next Universal Periodic Review (UPR) by the council’s other members in May. RSF’s evaluation deplores the Singaporean government’s complete disregard for the basic principles of press freedom. SingaporeAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesReports and statisticsMedia independence United Nations The government also arbitrarily decides whether a foreign media outlet may or may not be distributed within the city-state. Under several laws, including the sedition law and criminal code articles, publishing information that, for example, “promotes feelings of ill-will and hostility” within the population is punishable by imprisonment. The wording of these laws gives judges considerable leeway and, as a result, fosters a great deal of self-censorship within the news media. SingaporeAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesReports and statisticsMedia independence United Nations News Five years later, the situation is even worse, notably as a result of the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA), which took effect in October 2019. Also known as the “anti-fake news” law, it grants every member of the government the right to “correct,” delete or block access to any online content in order to “prevent a diminution of public confidence in (…) the government.” The blogger Leong Sze Hian, for example, continues to face the possibility of a two-year prison sentence in a criminal defamation case brought by the prime minister just because he shared an article from the Malaysian website TheCoverage.my on Facebook in November 2018. Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources Bastard added: “Singapore boasts of being an economic development model but, as regards the freedom to inform, it is a model of what not to be. Democracies should not tolerate this state of affairs.” Receive email alerts RSF_en A handful of news sites and blogs try to provide Singaporeans with reliable and independently reported information but those who run them are often the victims of judicial harassment by the government. April 10, 2020 Find out more Never out of power since the city-state’s independence in 1965, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s People’s Action Party has passed legislation that allows the government to oversee the appointment of those who run the leading media outlets, including their editors and the members of their boards of governors.

Clary / AFP). News Help by sharing this information The government rarely has to carry out the threat of judicial harassment against journalists working for any of the country’s mainstream media, whether print, broadcasting or online media, because they either belong to the MediaCorp group, which is owned by a state investment company, or they are owned by Singapore Press Holdings, whose bosses are appointed by the ministry of communications and information. Organisation After falling seven places in the space of a year, Singapore is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index and is now coloured black on the RSF press freedom map because the situation is classified as “very bad.” Related documents RSF’s evaluation ahead of Singapore’s 2021 Universal Periodic ReviewPDF – 185.24 KB Singaporean website prosecuted over election coverage The city-state’s authorities accepted 117 recommendations at the end of the council’s last UPR of the situation in Singapore in 2016. Absolutely none of them concerned press freedom although several member states had urged Singapore to amend laws criminalizing defamation, end media censorship by the state apparatus and allow the emergence of independent media not held back by self-censorship. Bad model “We urge the representatives of Human Rights Council member countries to challenge Singapore’s representatives about their complete disregard for the basic principles of press freedom,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “It is unacceptable for a member state to refuse to discuss this absolutely central issue with its peers, no matter how briefly.” to go further October 2, 2020 Find out more October 15, 2020 – Updated on October 19, 2020 RSF’s denounces Singapore’s disregard of press freedom ahead of its Universal Periodic Review Judicial harassmentlast_img read more

Child care and extended day learning programs are still running to support working parents. This decision was made out of concern for the health of our community as a social distancing measure in light of COVID-19. We will assess and reevaluate extending this decision early in the week of April 6.”It is not known if this includes school board meetings. Canceled events include all school assemblies and performances, No Boundaries 15 which was scheduled for ArtNight, Pasadena LEARNS Cheer competition (March 14), Math Field Day (scheduled March 20), All District and school level parent/community advisory committee meetings, including PTA events. All open house events through April 10. These may move to an online sharing of student work PUSD’s staff Professional Development will continue on March 20 with the format to be developedSAT testing scheduled this weekend will proceed with precautions and social distancing.Effective immediately, the district is also limiting visitors to PUSD schools, including volunteers. We look forward to welcoming our dedicated volunteers back to our campus later this spring.Schools are being told to stagger recess and lunch times to limit the number of students who are together.Athletics will continue to be evaluated in consultation with CIF.We will have a determination soon.“According to the Pasadena Public Health Department (PPHD), because the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recently broadened the criteria for testing for COVID-19, more and more individuals will be recommended by their physicians to be tested. When people are being tested, this does not mean they have the COVID-19 infection, therefore, there is no need for alarm. If there are people who are confirmed to have COVID-19, this will be communicated quickly.The changes comply with Scenario II of the state's guidelines, which applies to schools where they have been two cases community transmission of the virus. There have been two confirmed cases in LA County that cannot be traced back to a source.“There are no confirmed cases in PUSD at this time. Even though this case at CalTech has yet to be confirmed, we want to advise you that we are working closely with our Board of Education President and PPHD to take the needed actions to help protect our school community if a COVID-19 case is diagnosed. Our first priority is the health and safety of PUSD students, faculty, staff, and community members, including those who may have a greater risk of complications from COVID-19. We will take all precautions recommended by PPHD, L.A. County Department of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control to prevent or contain the disease from spreading at our schools," McDonald wrote.last_img read more
