Jonny Wilkinson’s trysaving tackle on Andrea Masi

first_imgWednesday Feb 16, 2011 Jonny Wilkinson’s trysaving tackle on Andrea Masi Jonny Wilkinson is playing second fiddle to Toby Flood these days, but despite not being the key figure he used to be, hes adjusting to the role well and contributing where he can, as was seen on Saturday during Englands whitewash win over Italy. Flood has come into his own at flyhalf, showing some of the form of his career, including a Man of the Match performance in the win over Wales. For Wilkinson, that means hes playing the backup role, which can be slightly frustrating at times, as he said recently. “It is hell sat on the sideline but at the same time it is massively important. Being on the bench brings new lessons for me,” Wilkinson said. “My desire to play for England is still as great as it was when I won my first cap. I am now in a role where I contribute slightly differently.” While not starting, he is playing some top quality rugby and still has the ability to come on and do the business when needed. Its a great position for England to be in, and injuries aside, Wilkinson will play in his fourth World Cup this year. “To play and play and play is crucial for me. It’s been a while and there were all kinds of different injuries going on. Seven years of coming in for cameo appearances has thrown me around in a way I don’t think I’ll ever understand fully. “Your confidence goes with all these things. It has been an interesting journey for me. I’ve learned that if I want to play rugby I can only play it one way or I don’t play it at all. My desire is to keep trying to get better and better. It would mean a huge amount to me to play in a fourth World Cup. I’m in it for the long run and I will give it all I’ve got and nothing less,” he added. As can be seen in this clip, Wilkinson came on against Italy and showed his commitment to the cause with a sensational try saving tackle late in the game that prevented Andrea Masi from diving in at the corner. Its been one of the most requested clips this week, so here you go.

Simon Zebo’s bold claim about brilliant Racing 92 teammate

first_imgTuesday Jan 21, 2020 Simon Zebo’s bold claim about brilliant Racing 92 teammate Racing 92 may have narrowly lost to Saracens on Sunday, but fullback Simon Zebo has made the claim that his teammate Virimi Vakatawa is the best player in the world currently.ADVERTISEMENTThe former Ireland international missed his sides’ contest at Allianz Park through injury, but showered the France international with praise in response to his performance against the reigning champions.Virimi Vakatawa best player in the world right now🔵⚪️🙌🏾— Simon Zebo (@SimonZebo) January 19, 2020The outside centre bagged two tries in the first half in north London, running in from 40 metres for Racing’s first of the match, and gliding through from close range for their third.The Fijian-born powerhouse has been in sensational form all season for the Parisian club, and he brought that form to the English capital, looking unstoppable at times in the first half, running through players at will and proving to be almost impossible to put down.It was only in the second half, where Saracens were able to take control of the match and starve Racing of possession and the chance to move the ball wide to the 27-year-old, that they won the match. Such is the danger that Vakatawa poses that it is imperative to subdue him in order for any side to win.There are few players in the game that are more of a threat to defences every time they carry the ball than the former sevens star at the moment. He showed his pace on Sunday in his first try, while his power and offloading game has never been questioned.ADVERTISEMENTWith the Six Nations a matter of days away, he is destined to start in the 13 shirt at the Stade de France against England on the opening weekend, where he will be able to cement his growing status as one of the best players in the world.

Five white, sculptural buildings rest on a cliff of the southern coast in Geoje Island, South Korea.  The white walls fold in themselves to create a private ocean view from each house.  Tall pine trees that grow between the buildings and the sea form occasional view frames.  This is the second resort for the hospitality group called “House of Mind.”Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinRecommended ProductsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornThe two-storey Knot House at the top is a clubhouse as well as the owner’s residence. At the border of the clubhouse, a V-shaped infinity pool merges with the ocean afar. Four other one-storey Knot Houses host six guest rooms. The narrow and long strip of the building site provided an initial challenge to fit maximum number of units while maintaining privacy and ocean view. Atelier Chang suggested a layout to turn each house by 40 degrees toward the sea. This staggering allows an unrestricted ocean view for the guests and produces niches of private zones. Simulta¬neously, it amplifies the dynamic outline of the roofs where the visitor can read the continuity of the white angular masses forming mountainous peaks.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe knot’s folding and unfolding creates different aperture in and outside the building.   Where the knot unfolds in the front, 3 to 5 meter full height windows open toward the ocean view.  In the rear, it tightens up and provides complete enclosure for privacy. Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinWhere the knot gets most loose, an intimate experience of bathing manages to escape out to the exterior garden.  The boundary between the inside and outside seems blurred at this moment.  It may feel ironic to be sitting in a Jacuzzi looking out to the ocean and garden on either side of the tub.  The strategic manoeuvre of the knot aimed at providing such a unique experience while maintaining privacy.  The knot continues as an interior intervention on a wooden strip.  It demarcates a private zone for bed and tub sitting in the open living room.Save this picture!Floor PlanDuring the concept phase of the project, a key question was how to achieve seamless spatial connection between outdoor landscape and indoor living space through architecture. To answer that question, one had stop separating the building from the ground.  Instead Atelier Chang imagined a surface made of landscape, which eventually folds into a knot to create an enclosure.  The wild landscape floods into the terrace, generates patterns of herb garden, and gradually reaches the interior in continuous manner.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe initial design was conceived for providing three typologies that mimic different knots.  Like choosing a product from a catalogue, an interested client can choose and combine multiple typologies, then form a unique master plan to suit the site.  Also the project brings multiple advantages from the real-estate point of view. At first, multiple units can be built for hospitality to generate immediate income.  Years later, they can be converted and sold as residential units. The design itself took account of adaptability throughout the life span of the building from a guest unit to a fully functioning residence. Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessBOX 298 Building / Andrade Morettin Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsCurucura House / Unoencinco ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Houses Save this picture!© Kyungsub Shin+ 34 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Knot House / Atelier Chang CopyAbout this officeAtelier ChangOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGeoje-siHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on August 20, 2014Cite: “Knot House / Atelier Chang” 20 Aug 2014.

House Committee Approves Bills to Provide Regulatory Relief for Banks

She specializes in visual storytelling and has skills in video, audio and photography, in addition to news writing. She has traveled to Mexico and Bosnia as an assistant for multiple multimedia projects and taught news writing, photojournalism, and narrative storytelling in the past. The House Financial Services Committee (HFSC) approved 11 bipartisan bills Thursday, aimed at providing community banks and credit unions some regulatory relief. According to Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), since the introduction of the Dodd-Frank Act, banks have been struggling to survive due to stricter regulation.“It is not an exaggeration to say that community banks and credit unions are withering on the vine. We are losing, on average, more than one a day and they are not perishing of natural causes,” he said. “The sheer weight, volume, cost, complexity, and uncertainty of federal regulation is a burden that is killing them off. And as they die, unfortunately, so do the dreams of millions of our fellow citizens who rely upon these community financial institutions to achieve their American dream of financial independence.”Representative Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) applauded the HFSC for passing the bills, saying these regulatory bills will help Main Street financial institutions. The chairman of the financial institutions and consumer credit subcommittee has been critical of the CFPB in the past. Earlier this month he introduced a bill that would replace the director of the CFPB with a five person bipartisan committee.“Today, the Financial Services Committee has begun to move the pendulum closer to the direction of reasonable regulation by taking the first step to address much-needed regulatory relief for our Main Street financial institutions and the consumers they serve,” he said. “These 11 bills will help jumpstart economic growth across America and help move individuals and families closer to the American Dream. I applaud Chairman Hensarling and my colleagues on the committee and I look forward to working together as we move these regulatory relief measures into law.”Hensarling noted the 11 bills passed by the Committee had bipartisan support and had previously been approved by either the Financial Services Committee or the House of Representatives during the 113th Congress.  However, none of the bills came up for a vote in the Senate, which was then under Democratic control.Of the bills approved, one would allow credit unions to apply for membership with the Federal Home Loan Banks. Two other bills would alter the definition of mortgage rules, while another would exempt small mortgage servicers from certain regulatory requirements.

Portugal leads push for European flexible labour

first_imgEmployers are pressing for maximum progress on boosting labour marketflexibility at this week’s EU economic summit in Lisbon.They see a window of opportunity with the Portuguese presidency emphasisinginnovation and lifelong learning, ahead of the French presidency where morelabour regulation is set to return to the agenda.European employers’ body Unice and the CBI have set out demands calling foran end to remaining barriers to employment of people across Europe. Theseinclude high social security costs and rigid wage-setting arrangements atnational level.They welcomed the approach of the Portuguese government. “We aretalking about a shift in policy approach which is very welcome,” saidUnice social affairs director Thérèse de Liedekerke.”The agenda is how to turn Europe into a competitive economy, lookingat what is the engine of growth, which is the development of the knowledge- andinnovation-based economy,” she said. CBI human resources policy director John Cridland also welcomed the switch.”In a fast-moving knowledge economy it is vital to allow people as muchfreedom as possible.”Portugal’s prime minister Antonio Guterres has backed job rotation andlifelong learning as part of a drive towards a better equipped workforce.As an example, he favours a “European driving licence” forinformation technologies. “The aim is to stimulate the acquisition andcertification of basic IT skills by the entire European population,” hetold the Knowledge 2000 conference in London this month.Employers’ groups fear that the French presidency, starting in July, willsee a reversion to proposals for more regulation. “There is still atendency in certain countries, France being one of them, to try to solveproblems by social engineering methods,” said de Liedekerke.France is likely to resurrect plans for compulsory employee consultation inall European firms with more than 50 staff.By Philip Whiteley Portugal leads push for European flexible labourOn 21 Mar 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

(Credit: Johannes Rupf from Pixabay) Summit Midstream Partners (SMLP) announced that the Double E Pipeline Project, a natural gas pipeline in the US, has secured $175m of funding commitments for its development.The 217.5km long pipeline will supply up to 1,350 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscfd) of natural gas from the northern Delaware Basin in New Mexico to Waha in Texas.The pipeline is slated to be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2021.The funding commitments to be provided to Summit Permian Transmission’s fully-owned indirect subsidiary Summit Permian Transmission have been secured from three commercial banks.Included in the commitments are a delayed draw term loan facility of $160m and a working capital facility of $15m.Summit Midstream Partners said that the credit facilities are non-recourse to the company and will mature seven years from the date of initial borrowing.Summit Midstream Partners president, CEO, and chairman Heath Deneke said: “I am pleased that we have secured financing commitments for substantially all of Summit’s expected remaining capital obligations for the construction of Double E.“I would like to thank our bank group for their support of Double E and believe this is a testament to the quality of this world class project.”The company had taken a final investment decision (FID) on the pipeline project in June 2019.Earlier this month, Summit Midstream Partners secured the notice to proceed for the project from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) paving the way for its construction.The midstream firm is partnered by ExxonMobil Permian Double E Pipeline in the pipeline project with a 30% stake.Summit Midstream Partners previously said that its share of costs to develop the gas pipeline is nearly $350m.last_img read more

Cole-ossal victory for OUSU Kate

first_imgKate Cole has been elected as Oxford University Student Union (OUSU) President for 2017-18 with 2,252 first-preference votes, beating her sole rival Vivian Holmes.This amounts to just 10 per cent of the total student population, but is higher than the 6.3 per cent achieved by last year’s winning candidate, Jack Hampton.Overall 4,454 students voted—a record turnout of 19 per cent, and an increase of 42 per cent on last year. OUSU held a results party in Oxford restaurant The Jam Factory to announce the results, featuring live music and entertainment.Over one thousand people were invited to the Facebook event. A few dozen attended. Two notable absences were both Presidential candidates.Cole’s #takeACTion slate, which promised fairer treatment for suspended students and improved policy on mental health, won three out of five sabbatical roles.Following her victory she said: “Massive thanks to the opposition Vivian, you have been a great opposition and a great friend. I’m so glad that I’ve made a friend out of this process.“To every person who has voted, sent us lovely well wishes, and put up with our relentless Facebook posturing. We couldn’t be more grateful.”Fellow #takeACTion slate member Katy Haigh was elected VP for Women. Shortly after the results were announced she told Cherwell: “Thank you to everyone who voted for the ACTion slate, to those of you who supported our campaign, and to our competitors for always being pleasant and professional during this election.“I am so excited to work with those who identify as women in the next academic year as their representative and I’m confident that I can provide support for all students across oxford no matter what they may be going through. Katy Haigh took VP for Women, and Catherine Canning won the VP for Access and Academic Affairs unopposed. Canning told Cherwell: “I am so grateful to everyone that voted. I look forward to representing the students of Oxford and being their voice in vital discussions regarding improving access and academic issues.“I want OUSU to be accountable, consistent and transparent next year and for all Oxford students. We have a fabulous team and I look forward to working with them.”The ‘Stand Up For Oxford’ slate of failed Presidential candidate Vivian Holmes took control of two sabbatical positions.Tom Barringer was elected unopposed as VP for Charities and Communities. Farheen Ahmed will become VP for Welfare and Equal Opportunities.‘Stand Up For Oxford’ told Cherwell: “We as a campaign are very pleased that the turnout this year was 40% higher than the year before. The increased level of student engagement makes makes us optimistic about the future of OUSU elections, and hopeful for an even higher turnout next time.“We are thrilled that Farheen Ahmed was elected, and are excited for the brilliant work she will carry out as VP Welfare and Equal Opportunities. We congratulate her, and Tom Barringer, Niamh White, and Ellie MacDonald for their victories.“We are sorry we won’t be able to put forward the vision we had for OUSU, but we congratulate the rest of the candidates who were elected for their success.”‘Wake Up, NUS’, a slate campaigning for structural reform of the NUS after Oxford voted to remain affiliated last year, won two NUS delegate places with candidates Lucasta Bath and Adam Hilsenrath.Hilsenrath told Cherwell: “I am of course proud and humbled that I won the vote of 692 of my fellow students, and look forward to representing them along with my fellow slate member Lucasta Bath at the NUS conference.“Unfortunately, I will not be joined by Tom or Baruch, the other fantastic candidates on our slate. Nonetheless, we will look to fight for a more representative, welcoming NUS, and hold it to account to remove the anti-semitism and racism within its ranks.”Tom Turner, the aforementioned ‘Wake Up NUS’ candidate who failed in his bid to win election as a delegate, said: “I’m happy that two of our candidates got on, and I look forward to seeing them do a fantastic job.“Obviously I’m disappointed to not get on, though as long as my values get a voice at conference I don’t really mind who’s expressing them.”An affiliate with the ‘Wake Up NUS’ slate was Alex Curtis of ‘Wake Up OUSU’ who was voted onto the position of Student Trustee, alongside Oliver Rice and Tarak Nath Gorai.Sean O’Neil and Aliya Yule were elected as NUS delegates from the ‘Count On Us’ slate. They describe themselves as standing “for welfare, for education, for liberation”, but controversially refused at hustings to vow to vote against a hypothetical reelection of Malia Bouattia, the divisive President of the NUS who has previously been condemned as an anti-semite.Yule argued that Bouattia had issued a further apology for her alleged anti-Semitic comments, and thus could not be discounted off-hand.Following the announcement of the results, Yule told Cherwell: “It’s the overwhelming vote to stay in NUS and this election that shows that Oxford students want to stay in the NUS and fight to make it different.”The other NUS delegates elected were Lucasta Bath, Niamh White, Adam Hilsenrath, and Ellie MacDonald. Teddy Hall recorded the highest college turnout, winning £600, with Wadham in second.Additional reporting by Lucy Enderby, Jack Hunter, Maxim Parr-Reid, and Jessica Voicu.last_img read more
