first_imgMonday Sep 16, 2013 Nick Wood red carded after 73 seconds for stamp on Jacques Burger Saracens achieved a comfortable 44-12 victory over Gloucester at Allianz Park on Sunday after prop Nick Wood was sent off for stamping with just 73 seconds on the clock. It was the second fastest sending off in the history of the Premiership. The home side went top of the table after the game was played with 15 against 14, and Gloucester struggled to cope with what would have been a big challenge even with a full side.It came about after Wood, eager to get Jacques Burger clear at a ruck, made contact with the Namibian flanker’s head, giving referee Wayne Barnes no option but to send him from the park.It was not only one of the quickest dismissals ever, but one of the fastest decisions, as Barnes had the card out before the players could even react, with a push and shove, to what had happened.Wood was clearly distraught at what he’d done, going over to apologise to Burger before taking his place on the bench, head in hands thinking about the position he’d put his team in.“It is very difficult for Nick – he’s in bits in the changing-room,” said Gloucester’s director of rugby Nigel Davies post match. “He’s apologised for what happened.“I saw it on the big screen and it didn’t look great. But he is not a dirty player. He’s a good technician and a good player. Everyone makes mistakes. He will come back stronger from this.”Wood and Burger could be seen shaking hands and chatting on the field after the match.Incidentally, the fastest ever Premiership sending off was by Mike Watson of London Scottish in 1999, when he lasted just 42 seconds against Bath. With Wood off the field, Saracens went on to score five tries and take a comfortable victory. Following the win, Saracens are now 2/1 with Betfair to win the Premiership.Note: Perform Group removed the original video.

The context:Japan, a different mindsetThis house, now built up in Yokohama, will never be occupied by a young couple with or without kids, a retired husband and wife or a business woman with a tight schedule and a big wardrobe. This is a prototype house built by a Japanese real state agency to showcase a new concept design within its catalogue for potential clients.Save this picture!© Tatsumi Planning Co.May sound weird in an occidental culture but it’s a very common practice in Japan where those who dream about living in a detached house with garage and backyard provide their own plot and get in contact with the agency that better matches its expectancies. AS a consequence the process of buying a house becomes something similar to buying just a product, associated to standard solutions but with the possibility to adjust the original concept design to your own needs.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis mindset will affect the process in all its stages, from the architectonic project or the making of the prototype to the sales method, the adjustment of the project to the client requests and finally the construction at the specific site. The use of standard solutions tested previously by the building company, usually linked to prefabricated construction systems, allows reducing the final price. Most part of the decisions adopted during the project are consequence of this method although those who are not familiar with the Japanese culture cannot appreciate just looking at the final image.Save this picture!© Tatsumi Planning Co.The briefing.The briefing we receive is concise, a Mediterranean house in Japan built in wood!! After the first shock and spending a couple of weeks in the Land of the Rising Sun things seem to be clearer. We approach the eastern way of life, get inside the habits of Japanese people and understand the method described previously. We decide to start with a strong concept design that provides character and identity and that will remain unaltered throughout the process of adjustment to each client needs.Save this picture!© Tatsumi Planning Co.The Mediterranean recalls the sound of the sea, the salted taste, the smell of the pine trees, all of them details that obviously we cannot find in the outskirts of Yokohama. But it means also sun, light, shadows and fresh air (or suffocating air). A courtyard, a traditional element in the Mediterranean architecture, will be our central piece. We design a house that transmits intimacy, which is difficult to reach in the dense pattern of Japanese cities, and at the same time enjoy the environment. We aim for the “exterior” to sneak inside and the “interior” to escape outside.Save this picture!First Floor PlanInterior and exterior get in touch in a lot of corners and in many different ways. We find big terraces or little balconies, covered by shadows or sunbathed, entries protected by lattices, exterior corners where to enjoy a summer meal and the courtyard as the core element surrounded by the rest of the house. Save this picture!© Tatsumi Planning Co.The courtyard at the core of the house, protected from unwanted viewings, becomes the center of the ground floor offering natural light, air and transparency. Crossing ventilations and perspectives offer a perception of the space as wide an unique giving an image far away from the classical tiny proportions of the Japanese architecture.  All the windows have been though from the inside and intend to be a reflection of the daily activity at the house. Small and low windows if we want to take a look outside from the bathtub, following the diagonal of the stairs or at the end of a corridor to enlarge the perspective. Big windows at the living room just to widen the space towards the exterior, in front of the kitchen sink to give us a distraction while we wash the dishes. If Le Corbusier defined the house as the “Living Machine” we prefer to feel it as the place to enjoy life.Save this picture!© Tatsumi Planning Co.Project gallerySee allShow lessStudio Li / Anne Rolland ArchitecteSelected ProjectsLEVI’S Stadium / HNTBSelected Projects Share Photographs Prototype House in Japan / Javier Mariscal + Lara Pérez-Porro + Tatsumi PlanningSave this projectSavePrototype House in Japan / Javier Mariscal + Lara Pérez-Porro + Tatsumi Planning CopyAbout this officeJavier MariscalOfficeFollowLara Pérez-PorroOfficeFollowTatsumi PlanningOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYokohamaJapanPublished on February 18, 2016Cite: “Prototype House in Japan / Javier Mariscal + Lara Pérez-Porro + Tatsumi Planning” 17 Feb 2016.

Giving a facelift to an otherwise aged 1960s Malibu Canyon track home, Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) creates a sparkling contemporary gem. Located all too near the notorious Piuma Canyon Brush fires, executive television producer Ted Gold and his wife Cara Hall, a graphic designer, took on the challenge to purchase an all wood-sided shed-roof modern home and transform it into something original and beautiful. Save this picture!© Kevin DoleWorking with a minimal budget one step at a time, they hired local California architect Phillips to make a series of strategic surgical design procedures to update, rejuvenate, and fortify their painfully drab house with elegance and style. As the original home had no front entry (it was originally accessed alongside the garage off the side-yard driveway) Phillips most notably created a two-story wrap-around balcony and deck that directed arriving guests to the front of the house. A dramatic new entry hall to the upper living level was added featuring a floating steel staircase with glass and stainless-steel guardrails alongside solid-white oak-wood treads.  Save this picture!AxonometricOn the interior, the kitchen was completely renovated opening up towards the family room, dining room, breakfast nook,  and  entry  hall.  The baths, bedrooms, and living spaces were all reconstructed with new carpeting, tile, fixtures, and paint. Hall lent her design sensibility to provocatively update all the interior rooms. Save this picture!© Kevin DoleSave this picture!© Kevin DolePhillips’s angular-roof entry becomes the central organizational figure within the overall design.  It brings visitors up from the garden to the living area, and uses glass extensively, shaded under a series of shifted and folded roof and wall planes that extend out to the canyon while framing distant mountain views. The new entry creates a dynamic yet relaxing contemporary space that reconfigures an otherwise rambling wooden shack with unclear floor plan into a strong well-organized contemporary dwelling. The family room, kitchen, and main hall all overlook the entry stair that provides views clear out to the mountains and easy access to the yard below.  Save this picture!© Kevin DoleFortifying the exterior the architect proposed a combination of cement board and metal panels alongside exterior cement plaster (stucco) wall surfaces to ensure a flame-resistant contemporary new look. The cement board panels serve as a light backdrop to a stunning use of dark metal seam roofing material that folds down, wraps up and around the roof, walls, and balcony. Carefully composed to highlight or diminish existing apertures and disparate housing forms, Phillips created a continuous well-composed design that compliments the pitched roof areas at the front and back of the existing canyon home.Save this picture!ElevationWhat was formally a lackluster wood developer track house becomes a sparkling jewel through only a few carefully designed elements that add bold dynamism alongside much needed value and protection to this unique and contemporary Malibu Canyon home.Save this picture!© Kevin DoleProduct Description:Built in a high-fire zone adjacent to the significant Malibu Fire of 2007, the architect fortified the exterior surfaces with a combination of cement board and metal panels alongside exterior cement plaster (stucco) to ensure a 1-hr flame-resistant contemporary new look.

first_imgBostonPolice forces killed four anti-government protesters in Chile during the first week of February. In the U.S., revolutionary hip-hop artists Rebel Diaz played an East Coast tour to benefit organizations on the front line of the people’s rebellion in Chile. They include Hijos de la Primera Linea (Children of the First Line) and CODEPU (La Corporación de Promoción y Defensa de los Derechos del Pueblo/Corporation for the Promotion and Defense of the Rights of the People).Members of Rebel Diaz, Nesto Nieves (with camera) of REDio Vision, A Desalambrar and Mapuche flag.Since early October, mass protests have taken over the streets of Santiago, the capital, to demand reversal of government-imposed transportation fare hikes.  Police responded by murdering at least 27 protesters; blinding over 500 people by shooting pellets, bullets and gas canisters at their eyes; and arresting  9,794 people, including 1,100 children and youth.People who have increasingly been impoverished by decades of neoliberal austerity — orchestrated by governments that trace their roots to the U.S.-sponsored fascist coup that overthrew socialist President Salvador Allende on Sept.11, 1973 —  have been in the streets every day.Today’s protesters, not satisfied with billionaire President Sebastián Piñera’s fare-hike reversal, are demanding his government resign. They also call for a Peoples’ Convention to scrap dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet’s 1980 laws for a new Constitution. (Pinochet ruled Chile from 1973 to 1990.)‘Repression led to resistance’Rodstarz and his brother G1 of Rebel Diaz explained to a packed house at the Boston Teachers Union hall on Feb. 8 that massive repression has led to massive resistance by young people, union members, Indigenous peoples, migrant workers and social organizations.Moonanum James, a member of the Wampanoag Nation and co-leader of United American Indians of New England, opened the event on a stage framed by flags of the Mapuche Nation, who live in South America’s southern region.Samuel Ordóñez, a representative of the immigrant rights’ group COSECHA, came straight from a victorious hunger strike at the Massachusetts Statehouse for migrant workers’ right to have a driver’s license. He spoke in solidarity with the Chilean people. So did Kristin Turgeon, representing Workers World Party.Members of Harvard’s TPS and DACA Coalition (Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals), Bishop Felipe Texeira’s liberation flock, students from University of Massachusetts Boston and school bus drivers from United Steelworkers Local 8751’s Team Solidarity, which sponsored the concert, pumped fists and rocked in solidarity with the Chilean revolution.  Zumix, a youth mentoring and professional sound equipment organization in East Boston, shook the house.Families from the local Chilean community filled the tables. Children led the way on the dance floor.  Eroc Arroyo and Opti Brown, from Boston’s legendary Foundation Movement, wowed the audience with their classic raps and effervescent optimism.No one wanted A Desalambrar’s final set to end. Their guitars, wooden flutes, chimes, Andean percussion and sublime, militant poetry brought Chile’s New Song Movement of Victor Jara and other martyrs of the 1973 massacre at Santiago Stadium to glorious life for a new generation of artists and fighters.Eyewitness: ChileThroughout the four-hour event, Nesto Nieves of REDio Vision and Rodstarz projected scenes onto the walls from the front lines of today’s Chilean rebellion. Their eyewitness footage was difficult to watch, as it showed and reported police shootings, rapes, torture, use of poison gas and fire, and gruesome murders.The front-line footage also showed rare and thrilling scenes of street battles led by Hijos de la Primera Linea, together with the peoples’ forces, sending Chile’s police running in an historic military retreat.Rebel Diaz also projected Prensa OPAL, Chile’s live-action coverage of a Jan. 25 street battle in Santiago — a must-see for those who want to understand and lend solidarity to the struggle there. ( said his parents were leaders of the MIR (Movimiento de Izquierda Revolucionaria/Revolutionary Left Movement ). The group was targeted by National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger and President Richard Nixon’s CIA, International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation, Wall Street and Chilean generals in their bloody coup.The military murdered and imprisoned tens of thousands of Rodstarz’s parents’ comrades and co-workers. They fled to Chicago and then to the Bronx for their family’s survival.Rebel Diaz dedicated their homage to Florence Reece’s anthem for the 1931 Harlan County coal miners’ strike to the Boston School Bus Drivers’ Union. The group reminded the world that now is the time to act and declare: “Which Side Are You On?” ( writer is a member of the Executive Board of United Steelworkers Local 8751, the Boston School Bus Drivers Union.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Analyzed by the American Farm Bureau Federation in a Market Intel article, USDA’s Milk Production report showed the fourth-largest year-over-year decline in the number of licensed dairy operations in the last 15 years.There were 2,550 fewer licensed dairy operations in 2020 than in 2019, when the number dropped by 3,261. The overall number of licensed operations in the U.S. has marched steadily downward since data collection began, declining by more than 55 percent, from 70,375 in 2003 to 31,657 in 2020.AFBF suggests this recent acceleration of the decline reflects how difficult it is to operate a dairy in a low milk price environment. Since the end of 2014, dairy farmers have struggled with low prices followed by an industry-disrupting pandemic that increased milk price volatility and rendered risk management tools mostly ineffective.

State of Uttarakhand & Others Writ Petition (PIL) No. 90 of 2019, and the direction, contained therein was sought to be complied with.BackgroundNotably, in the afore-mentioned Judgment, the Division bench of the High Court had directed, among others, Union HRD Minister and Ex-CM of Uttarakhand, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank to deposit the entire penal rent and other amount due (Rs. 41,64,389.00) for the amenities availed by him as a Chief Minister of the State.Directions were given to the State Government authorities that the amount be recovered from him (and other Ex-Cms of the State), against whom (among others) the PIL was drawn [RLEK v. State of Uttarakhand & Others].Further, it was directed that the amount (Rs. 41,64,389.00) be paid within a period of six months.The Court had ascertained the said amount (Rs. 41,64,389.00), based upon an affidavit of Additional Secretary/Estates Officer of the State dated 12.02.2019, which was referred to in the Division Bench Judgement [RLEK v. State of Uttarakhand & Others], in which the details of liabilities to be met by each of them (Ex-CMs of the State) was detailed, by quantifying the amount.Court’s 15th October OrderIt was informed to the Court by the counsel for the petitioner that the so-called compliance affidavit, filed by the respondent and the deposit, as projected in the application of compliance to have been made by the respondent (Ramesh Pohkriyal Nishank), in fact, was not in consonance to the determination, which has now been made by Mr. Deependra Kumar Chaudhary, Additional Secretary, Government of Uttarakhand.In other words, it was argued that the Additional Secretary to the Govt. of Uttarakhand had directed the respondent No. 1 (Ramesh Pohkriyal Nishank), to remit an amount as determined by him to be of Rs. 10,77,709/-, instead of Rs. 41,64,389.00, which was payable according to the Division Bench Judgment of 2019.To this, the Court said,”This determination (of amount Rs. 10,77,709/-) which has been made by Mr. Deependra Kumar Chaudhary, the Additional Secretary, on 10.09.2020, runs contrary to the prior determination, which was considered by the Division Bench of this Court, which was submitted by way of an affidavit by the then Additional Secretary/Estate Officer, by an affidavit dated 12.02.2019, where the State itself in compliance of the earlier order passed by the Division Bench on 16.02.2017, had calculated the respective liability of rent for the use of an occupation of the premises and other dues towards amenities and the said affidavit as submitted by the State, itself earlier on 12.02.2019, had shown the amount of liability payable by the respondent 1 (Ramesh Pohkriyal Nishank), to be Rs. 41,64,389/-” (emphasis supplied)As far as Ramesh Pohkriyal Nishank’s case was concerned, the Court noted that he was communicated by the Additional Secretary/Estate Officer of the Govt. of Uttarakhand, of the amount of liability due to be paid, and consequently, whatsoever amount was demanded, he remitted the same.Hence, according to the argument of the counsel for the respondent (Ramesh Pohkriyal Nishank), the judgement stood complied with, on his part.But the petitioner’s counsel submitted that the determination of the amount, made by Mr. Deependra Kumar Chaudhary, Additional Secretary to the Govt. of Uttarakhand, would in itself amount to be a contempt of a criminal nature for the reason being that he sat upon a determination, which was made by the Division Bench of this Court and that too when it was based upon the state’s own stand taken in their affidavit filed by the then Additional Secretary dated 21.02.2019.To this, the Court said,”Recalculating the amount and that too contrary to the statements of account which were submitted in pursuance to the order of this Court, it would amount to be a deliberate and an intentional contempt and rather it would be an attempt to mislead the Court also by portraying different liabilities than what has been considered by the Division Bench in its judgement.” (emphasis supplied)Further, the Court said,”This Court is of the view that it is an act of an intentional contempt, hence Mr. Deependra Kumar Chaudhary, Additional Secretary, Govt. of Uttarakhand is liable to be noticed for committing a wilful contempt.”In these circumstances, the Court, suo-moto took cognizance and directed the petitioner to implead Deependra Kumar Chaudhary, Additional Secretary, Govt. of Uttarakhand as party respondent No. 2 to the contempt petition.Importantly, the Court directed that notice be issued to him “to show cause as to how and in what manner he has determined the amount, payable by the respondent No. 1 (Ramesh Pohkriyal Nishank), contrary to affidavit, which was placed before the Division Bench of this Court dated 12.02.2019 and was the basis of the judgement dated 03.05.2019.”Notably, in June 2020, the Uttarakhand High Court had declared that the ‘Uttarakhand Former Chief Ministers Facility Act, 2019’ which allowed former Chief-Ministers of the State to stay in government bungalows without paying market rent, WAS “ultra vires”.The Division Bench comprised of Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice RC Khulbe had held that a Chief Minister, once he demits office, is on par with the common man and is not entitled to any preferential treatment, other than security and other protocolsClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
