Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 5

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 5

first_imgFriday Mar 19, 2010 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 5 Round six of the Super 14 got underway earlier today, so it’s time to take a look back at Round 5 with our weekly Super 14 Pick of the Week feature.In Round 5 the Bulls continued their dominance of the tournament with yet another powerful win at home. They’ve now scored an incredible 50 points in three out of their four matches. The only game they didn’t score 50 in was against the Waratahs, where they scored 48.Against the Highlanders they scored a few great tries, but none was better than the individual effort from right wing Gerhard van den Heever scored from a run that started way back in his 22.Other stand out tries came from scrumhalf Kahn Fotuali’i for the Crusaders, who scored two from some excellent offloading in the tackle and perfect support play. The Reds notched up 50 points themselves as they brushed aside the struggling Force, with Quade Cooper once again on fire. Great tries by Digby Ioane and Luke Morahan are featured here.In Cape Town, the Stormers ran riot against the Hurricanes with big Fijian Sireli Naqelevuki and fullback Joe Pietersen combining twice for respective tries. The Waratahs also brushed aside a struggling unit, as they hammered the touring Lions in Sydney. Josh Holmes and Drew Mitchell scored great breakaway tries, with Mitchell actually getting four on the night. :: Related Posts :: Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 4 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 3 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Rounds 1 & 2 Time: 04:38 Music: Breathe by the ProdigyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The MAA residence was designed for a young couple who already owned a house created by our office, but who was looking for their second home. The new family house would be built on a larger plot, and it should be able to accommodate an expanded needs program due to the arrival of the children. The project was carried out in one of the noblest areas of São Paulo, on a corner lot whose urban conditions imposed great setbacks. The geometry of the lot soon made us realize the possible suitability of an implantation in an “L” shape on the land, capable of accommodating the desired area in a building consisting of two floors and the basement. In this way, we were able to create a large free area for the garden, the terrace and the pool, in order to enjoy the sunniest possible orientation.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGWe developed the idea of generating different façades, with the aim to create a more organic composition that would allow greater integration between external and internal spaces. For this reason, we sought to explore asymmetric slopes in the roof, adopting ridges at different points in the plant. Thus, we created a type of folding based on the notion of the origami, a traditional Japanese technique. The gentle slopes designed for the roof were highlighted by zinc brises, supported by the extension of the eaves referring to the upper and lower floors. The adoption of wooden lattice panels gives privacy and transparency to the bedrooms, located on the first floor. The visual connection with the leisure areas and the garden contributes to the pleasant ambience of the spaces intended for rest.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe social and leisure areas are located on the ground floor, which completely opens to the garden and to the pool, harmoniously integrating with the living room, the dining room, and the gourmet kitchen. With regard of the materials, we can point out that the palette chosen for the project took advantage of the soft contrast established between the Freijó wood ceiling, the gray travertine marble floors and the white walls, which serve as a background for the exhibition of an extensive collection of contemporary art. The main points of the basement are the presence of a large gym and a notable wine cellar, with wooden flooring. Laundry, service rooms and technical areas are also located in the basement, under the construction´s projection, to guarantee the maximum occupancy allowed for the lot.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessEmpowering African American Female Architects and Students: In Conversation with Tif…ArticlesNew Images Reveal One Beverly Hills Development by Foster + PartnersArchitecture News Share CopyHouses•São Paulo, Brazil Year:  MA House / Jacobsen ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveMA House / Jacobsen Arquitetura 2020 MA House / Jacobsen Arquitetura Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJacobsen ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPinheirosBrazilPublished on July 08, 2020Cite: “MA House / Jacobsen Arquitetura” [Residência MAA / Jacobsen Arquitetura] 08 Jul 2020.

Disabilities caucus condemns attempted execution of Mumia by medical neglect

Disabilities caucus condemns attempted execution of Mumia by medical neglect

first_imgWadiya Jamal and Mumia Abu-JamalThe People with Disabilities Caucus of the People’s Power Assembly joins the international progressive community in condemning the attempted execution by medical neglect of Mumia Abu-Jamal.Writing from behind the walls of the prison-industrial complex, internationally renowned political prisoner and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal is known for exposing the racist foundation of capitalism, from mass incarceration of people of color in for-profit prisons to U.S. war and intervention abroad.Unjustly convicted of killing a police officer, Mumia has spent 30 years in prison, until recently in solitary confinement on Pennsylvania’s Death Row. His demand for a new trial and freedom is supported by heads of state and prominent politicians in France, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America and by Nobel laureates Nelson Mandela, Toni Morrison, Desmond Tutu and others.Mumia is now seriously ill. He is suffering from life-threatening diabetes, full body skin disease, weight loss of 80 pounds in the last two to three months, extreme dehydration, multiple neurological symptoms, [including] uncontrollable shaking, slurred speech and loss of memory with fugue states. He now uses a wheelchair. Mumia’s family and friends hold the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections directly responsible for neglect, malpractice and inadequately addressing the alarming deterioration of his health. Only if he is released will he be able to get the proper medical care to give him a chance at recovery.Prisons are a disability issue. Mass incarceration has resulted in the jailing of people with mental, developmental, emotional and physical disabilities in disproportionately high numbers. Many are unjustly incarcerated. Once in jail, they often receive inadequate treatment for their disability or no treatment at all. This violates Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which guarantees prisoners with disabilities the right to adequate health care.As activists in the disability rights movement, we demand that Mumia, and all prisoners with disabilities, be immediately granted full medical rights, as protected by the ADA.We demand that Mumia be able to see a doctor of his choice. We demand that Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has been imprisoned for decades for a crime he never committed, be released immediately.We urge you to join us in phoning and emailing:• Secretary of the Department of Corrections, John Wetzel, to demand that Mumia be treated by a doctor of his choice. 717-728-2573; [email protected] pa.gov• Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to demand that the state halt attempts to execute Mumia by medical neglect. 717-787-2500; fax 717-772-8284; [email protected] also urge you to circulate this statement as widely as possible.People with Disabilities Caucus of the People’s Power AssemblyPeoplespowerassemblies.org; 212-633-6646.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Kavanaugh secured the support needed to win Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court.The Senate voted Friday 51 to 49 to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination.Three of the four undecided votes went to Kavanaugh’s favor coming from two Republicans, Sens. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Susan Collins (Maine), and one Democrat, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska).After reading the FBI report Thursday, both Republican senators said they’d “seen no additional corroborating information” to go along with Dr. Ford’s testimony.Just when we thought it was over, some votes could still change later on Friday.Kavanaugh acknowledges demeanor in Senate testimonySupreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh acknowledged that he shouldn’t have said some things in his testimony to the Senate in an op-ed published Thursday.Kavanaugh said he understands how questions about his demeanor and judicial temperament could be raised after the way he acted. But he argues that he will be an impartial and even-tempered justice.According to the Washington Post, his defense comes after 2,400 law professors from different political parties signed a letter to the Senate that argued for Kavanaugh’s lack of “judicial temperament.”Kavanaugh wanted to it make clear that the allegations against him were undue and wrongful.But some like Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said it was too little too late to make a statement.What the Kavanaugh allegations mean for the midtermsRepublicans never expected the backlash and controversy that surrounded Kavanaugh’s nomination on July 9.What seemed like a sure thing confirmation is now making the party nervous. But something else surprising has happened in light of all of this: Republicans are more excited to vote in the midterms.A NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll said Republicans decreased their enthusiasm deficit from 10 to 2 points since July.According to CNN, republican leaders have noticed this spurt of enthusiasm and are using it to ensure the maximum amount of voters show up to the polls on Nov. 6.Trump tax investigation continuesNew York City officials said Thursday they have joined state regulators in the investigation of the Trump family tax schemes.Earlier this week, it was revealed that Trump had participated in shady things like outright fraud and tax evasion in the 1990s.The statute of limitation on any of these potential crimes uncovered have long expired, but this investigation will decide whether other penalties like fines are merited.U.S. puts sanctions on Turkish companyThe U.S. government imposed sanctions on a Turkish company for doing business with North Korea.S.I.A. Falcon International Group was accused of trading luxury goods and weapons with North Korea and ignoring previous sanctions from the U.S. and the United Nations.This is sending a strong message to Kim Jong Un right before the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to North Korea this weekend.The Trump administration wants to make clear its intentions to put pressure on North Korea to get rid of its nuclear missile programs.The move is also highlighting the on-again off-again relationship with Turkey, a NATO country.U.S. officials charge Russian spy agency of attacksThe U.S. government charged seven Russian spies with a variety of crimes.From widespread hacking that leaves no one safe to doping, poisoning, and downing of a plane, these individuals aren’t getting off easy.Russian officials from the intelligence agency, GRU, have denied these active measures and said that the U.S. has some shady business of its own: a biological program using toxic bugs as weapons.This is just one instance of the many accounts of Russian international crimes.

Motorists angry at new price plan at city car park

Motorists angry at new price plan at city car park

first_imgEmail CITY centre shoppers have reacted angrily to the new price plan at the Q car park at Harveys Quay, where motorists are now charged at 15 minute intervals.In a recent article The Limerick Post revealed the prices at various multi-story carparks around the city, and, with their new price plan of .60 cent per 15 minutes, the Q facility at Dunnes on Henry Street, emerged as the most expensive in the city, at 2.40 euro per hour.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A company representative told The Post that the rate reduced to two euro per hour, after the first three hours.Teresa Moloney, from Thomondgate, now living in Kilmore, was outraged when she discovered that the charge had increased by 50 cent from the previous rate of 1.90 euro per hour.“I couldn’t believe they would increase the price by so much and try to make out that they were doing us a favour by reducing it from 2.40 to two euro after the first 3 hours. That is still extortionate”, Teresa told The Post.“Nobody would come into town, park and spend just 15 minutes there. Also, if you are one minute over that you have to pay for the next 15, so if you are there for, say, just 31 minutes it would cost 1.80 euro!“The location suits me perfectly and, as a woman in my 60’s, I am not a fan of having to walk too far, but I want to boycott the place now. I would be prepared to march in protest over the cost”.Another angry Q car park customer was Mairéad Portley, who told The Post that she would be reluctant to shop in the city centre in future due to the price of parking there.She said: “To my horror last Friday, I noticed that Q car park at Dunnes had changed its billing system to 15 minute intervals.“I parked there from 11 am to 2.15 pm to enjoy some lunch and shopping in the city centre. The cost of this parking was 9.20 euro, an incredible rip off.“I, for one, will never park here again and will be most reluctant to shop in the city in future.“While in France recently, I parked in the city centre of Dijon, where it was 50 cent per hour. In essence, an hour parking in the Q car park is now 2.40, which compares negatively against other carparks in the city.“In recessionary times, I would expect prices to drop rather than increase”.In light of the comments received from unhappy customers, The Limerick Post contacted the headquarters of Q car parks in Dublin, seeking an explanation for the change in the price plan.Breda Leonard, head of marketing at the company, told us: “The price change was introduced at the beginning of August after we had been approached by customers and retailers who asked us to consider a 15 minute interval charge.“The motivation behind their request was to allow customers the opportunity to pay solely for the time they spent shopping. Previously, if an individual spent one hour and five minutes in the car park they would be charged for two hours. The 15 minute interval charge is more flexible and in current times, everyone is more conscious of spending.“We have discovered by chatting to customers that 62 per cent of them have made savings since we introduced the change. The plan was rolled out in Cork, Limerick, Galway and Dublin, but Limerick is the only place where we have received predominantly negative feedback.Ms. Leonard stated that a survey with a number of questions would be circulated to the carparks, and concluded that Q car parks would be happy to revert back to the hourly charge if that is what the majority of customers wanted.There is, as of yet, no date set for when the final decision on prices at the car park will be made.

Reward grows to $75,000 in hunt for killer of 7-year-old Texas girl as investigators look for links to other shootings

Reward grows to $75,000 in hunt for killer of 7-year-old Texas girl as investigators look for links to other shootings

first_imgChalabala/iStock(HOUSTON) — A reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer of a 7-year-old Texas girl has been raised to $75,000 as investigators analyzed and compared shell casings from the crime scene to those of unsolved shootings in the Houston area.Law enforcement officers are combing northeast Houston where a suspect, described by investigators as a white man driving a red pickup truck, opened fire on an African-American family’s car, killing Jazmine Barnes and wounding her mother, LaPorsha Washington.An official briefed on the investigation told ABC News Thursday that federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are comparing shell casings from Jazmine’s shooting to those in other cases to see if there are any connections.On Wednesday, Houston civil rights activists and religious leaders raised the specter that the random attack on Jazmine and her family was a hate crime and noted its similarities with an unsolved shooting in 2017 that left an African-American man seriously wounded.A’Vonta Williams, now 22, was shot in an apparently random attack on Aug. 30, 2017, as he drove his car about six miles from where Jazmine was shot. Officials said Williams was shot by a white man driving a pickup truck.Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Wednesday that investigators from his agency are taking a fresh look at Williams’ shooting to see if anything was missed.Gonzalez said Jazmine’s sisters, who were in the car when she was shot, are working with investigators to come up with a composite sketch of the suspect they hope to release to the public.Meanwhile, social justice activist and journalist Shaun King announced on Twitter Thursday morning that the reward for information leading to an arrest of Jazmine’s killer has been raised from $50,000 to $75,000.“We will not stop until we find this man and bring him to justice,” tweeted King, a writer-in-residence at Harvard Law School’s Fair Punishment Project.The case has also prompted celebrities to get involved in the hunt for the killer.“Find him. This evil monster,” actress Gabrielle Union tweeted.Actress Olivia Wilde also took to Twitter to bring attention to the manhunt, writing, “Please help find this murderer if you can.”Meanwhile, Jazmine’s family announced that a funeral and balloon release for the little girl will be held on Tuesday at noon at the Green House International Church in Houston.Local activists are also planning to hold a community rally at noon on Saturday outside a Walmart close to where Jazmine was shot.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
