Heyneke Meyer at the Leicester Tigers

first_imgMonday Sep 8, 2008 Heyneke Meyer at the Leicester Tigers While a large amount of attention was on the controversial Springbok coach Pieter De Villiers throughout the Tri Nations, there is one man who possibly could have been sitting in the hot seat if it weren’t for a few, dare I say it, politically motivated decisions.Heyneke Meyer narrowly missed out on taking over from Jake White despite being the frontrunner for the job. His success rate when coaching the Bulls speaks for itself, winning four Currie Cups and the first ever Super 14 title for a South African side in 2007.But now, South Africa’s loss is Leicester’s gain, as Meyer, who initially hinted at leaving rugby altogether, has taken up the head coaching role with the Guinness Premiership finalists of last season, replacing Argentinian Marcelo Loffreda.With Meyer at the helm, the Tigers couldn’t have had a better start to the season as this past weekend they defeated Gloucester by twenty points to eight at Kingsholm.“We always knew it would be tough. We knew Gloucester would come out firing and that we would have to get stuck in and show some attitude.“Our fitness levels showed and I was very happy with the defence. Gloucester had a lot of opportunities out wide but we defended well.”The win puts Meyer and the club in good stead for the rest of the season, and is the perfect start for the man from Pretoria who has so much to offer.This interview gives great insight into Meyer himself, and we hear from some of the players about the feeling in the camp and what the season holds.

The Crabills bought the five-acre property near Hillsborough, NC, with the intention of building a simple, modern home in a clearing amidst a lush forest. They wanted the house to disturb the natural environment as little as possible and accommodate local wildlife.Save this picture!© Richard Leo Johnson “Our clients asked us to design a unique live/work house that inspire creativity and provides interesting spatial overlaps,” said project architect Katherine Hogan, co-owner of Tonic Design and Tonic Construction. “They also wanted it to be constructed in a simple and cost-effective way”. The architects sited the house carefully to avoid disturbing the natural environment, to maximize natural lighting, and to frame views of forest, including a favorite three-trunked tree.Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonTo reflect the rural setting, Petrarca specified simple, inexpensive materials and references to regional agricultural structures rendered in a modern architecture composition. Recalling old farm sheds, the house’s skewed cubic form is clad in solid and perforated COR-TEN®, a steel alloy developed to eliminate the need for painting. The steel forms a stable rust-like appearance when exposed to the weather. As a result, the house will be a constantly evolving element in the landscape as a rich patina develops over the years. The COR-TEN also acts as a rain screen, canopy, sunshade, and visual screen.Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonSpray foam insulation, tightly sealed ducts, low-e glazed windows, and Energy Star® appliance contribute to the home’s energy conservation. Despite the fact that their new house is 800 feet larger than their previous house, the Crabills report that their energy bills are, on average, 30 percent lower.Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonThe first floor includes the entry, a spacious kitchen/living/dining room, a studio/music space, and two decks.

Vaulted House / vPPR

Vaulted House is a new-build four-bedroom family house, located on an infill site, hidden behind a garage door in Hammersmith. It was previously a diesel contaminated taxi garage, surrounded by 11 party walls and overlooked by 24 neighbours. A series of sharply detailed vaulted roofs define different living zones on the open upper-ground floor. Roof-lights at the top of each vault flood the landlocked site with daylight. Large courtyards bring light into the bedrooms on the lower-ground floor. The roofs are covered in a striking chequered pattern of single-ply membrane. The vault geometry repeats in details of the house, including the fireplace, floors, windows and entrance.Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuA double-height den has access to the garden at the back for the children to play in. A separate study provides acoustic privacy with a view through to the living space. A big double-sliding pocket door opens up completely, turning the dining room into a loggia in the summer.Save this picture!SectionSeveral of the 24 neighbours included active members of the Brackenbury Residents’ Association. Detailed residents’ consultations and the incorporation of their feedback into the design led to seven letters of support for the scheme at planning.Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe vaulted roofs are covered with two tones of single-ply roofing membrane to produce a harlequin pattern, breaking up the large area of roof and greatly improving the outlook, which was previously onto rotten asphalt roofs. Inside the house, the vaults meet at sharp plastered edges, concealing the down-stand beams rather than expressing them. Vault-like elements are repeated obsessively at each scale of the design, forming sculptural chamfered edges to the windows, fireplace and TV wall. The timber floors are laid in a cross pattern that reflects the vaults above them.Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuA mechanical heat exchange system and thick insulation make for an energy efficient home. A study allows for working from home or can become a spare bedroom for elderly relatives visiting. The entrance is stepped up to meet flood requirements but these are wide and gentle for ease of access.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe site is a former taxi garage and was designated as contaminated land. All 1.5m of excavated soil had to be tested and carefully disposed of. The garden walls are underpinned rather than demolished. A steel and timber frame spans off the existing walls to create the roof and floor structure. The roof is constructed from plywood over timber joists, covered with insulation and single-ply membrane. The geometry of the roof appears simple but is in fact incredibly complicated. It was modeled in 3D software, which enabled precise back and forth between consultants to ensure that the huge steel beams were completely hidden in the crisp angled finishes inside and by the roof finishes outside.Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuProject gallerySee allShow lessA.L.

On the picket line

first_imgBy Alex Bolchi, Mattie Starrdust, and Sue DavisTom Cat Bakery workers fight for jobsThirty-one immigrant workers at Tom Cat Bakery, an industrial baked goods supplier in Long Island City, N.Y., received letters from the payroll department demanding they prove legal immigration status by March 15. “Unless you present us with valid identification,” the letter reads, “… you are considered by the Homeland Security Investigations to be unauthorized to work in the United States.” (villagevoice.com, March 22)The workers, who are organized with the nonprofit advocacy group Brandworkers, immediately sprang into action with a rally March 22 calling for community support and demanding the company defend the workers from the DHS attack. According to Tom Cat worker Librada Antigua: “The Trump administration may want us to disappear, but we’re not leaving our children for anything. Our unity is our strength, and our commitment is to victory.” In response to the show of united resistance, the company has agreed to delay layoffs until April 21.Henry Rivera, an 11-year Tom Cat worker who immigrated in 2005 from Honduras, encouraged workers to participate in May 1 general strike actions to fight back against the increasing anti-immigrant attacks, “We are organizing not just for Tom Cat workers, but for workers in New York and the whole nation to encourage them to fight for justice.” (licpost.com, March 29)NYC women of color fight for equal payA protest called at City Hall for April 4, Equal Pay Day, is part of the fight for back pay by more than 1,500 women of color who hold administrative managerial jobs in New York City agencies. Signifying the wage gap, the date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.When Communication Workers Local 1180 discovered two years ago that these women workers were being grossly underpaid — by upwards of $65,000 a year — CWA filed a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which quickly found in their favor. When the city failed to respond to EEOC’s request to pay up, Local 1180 filed a notice of claim last December demanding retroactive pay amounting to $243 million. The union called the demonstration to spotlight that the city is still negligent. (cwa1180.org)Congress sides with bosses in two casesYet again, Congress sides with bosses instead of working folks. In early March, Rep. Jody Hice introduced HR 1364, the Official Time Reform Act of 2017. It would cut the clock on that part of the workday that union shop stewards can spend on “official time.” That’s time spent at work representing the union, resolving members’ concerns and problems. It’s a request guaranteed under civil service law passed 40 years ago, and a method already exists for curtailing it — management and supervisors can deny the request.Since this control exists, rendering HR 1364 redundant, what are its true intentions? Congress wants a chilling effect on workers who need representation, but also wants to ice those workers who want to serve as stewards. If enacted, this bill would take retirement time from stewards as a penalty. It’s literally asking a steward to choose between your future and your member’s. It’s muffling whistleblowers but also union calls to serve as stewards. Under capitalism, officials reckon only with capital’s forces and never the working people who shape labor and our unions. (afge.org, March 13)Anti-worker President Trump signed a joint resolution March 27 to nullify the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces rule issued by the Obama administration in 2014. Its purpose was to safeguard workers by making sure federal contracts do not go to companies that habitually violate labor laws by failing to pay overtime and minimum wages, deny lunch breaks or force employees to work off the clock. “By repealing these protections … contractors with even the worst track records [are] off the hook — a punch in the gut to workers, taxpayers, and law-abiding businesses,” said Christine Owens, executive director the National Employment Law Project.A congressional report released in March assessing federal contractors’ compliance with labor laws found “significant” abuses. Dozens of worker deaths occurred at companies that took shortcuts with health and safety standards. More than 300,000 workers employed by federal contractors in the past decade have experienced wage theft. Nearly one-quarter of the U.S. workforce is employed by a federal contractor or subcontractor.

Guaidó returns to Venezuela after Trump applauds him

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this CaracasPublished Feb. 12 in pagina12.com.ar. Translation by Michael Otto.Juan Guaidó returned to Venezuela after his tour of Europe and the United States [on Feb. 11]. He entered through the international airport of Maiquetía, in the state of Vargas, half an hour from Caracas. His arrival was announced in the morning and his reception by the government’s opposition was small.Juan GuaidóIn the airport concourse, more supporters of the government, Chavistas, shouting, “get out” and “country sell-out” [or “traitor”] were waiting for him than were his own supporters. Among those who confronted and denounced him were workers from Conviasa, the Venezuelan state airline recently punished by the U.S. government as part of its economic blockade. (See videos of Conviasa confrontations: tinyurl.com/vakbcqw/.)As expected, Guaidó had no problem entering the international airport, just as that happened last year.  At that time his departure via Colombia was organized by the Colombian government and the paramilitary group, Los Rastrojos. He entered again through regular migratory channels.This self-appointed “president” arrived with his narrative going full blast after his international trip through Colombia, several European countries, Canada and the United States. It was on the last stop, particularly in Washington, D.C., that he got the photo opportunities which the pro-coup opposition [known as “golpistas”] had hoped for: bipartisan applause at the State of the Union address in Congress and a meeting with President Donald Trump.Small turnout for Guaidó in ChacaoUpon leaving the Maiquetía airport, Guaidó went to the municipality of Chacao in Caracas, one of the city’s main opposition areas, to stage an event. Attendance was small. This once again exposed the gap between the reality in Venezuela and the media fabrication which projects diplomatic support of Washington’s power structure.  Guaidó showed he was incapable of attracting mass support — or even a moderate amount of support — despite his bombastic and triumphalist discourse. He is weighed down by his political errors, connections to corruption, disappointments and exhaustion — not just his own, but belonging to the entire opposition.During his talk in Chacao, Guaidó announced that new steps will be taken to put pressure on the government of President Nicolás Maduro, without specifying what they will be: “There are things we will have to say when the time is ripe […] the steps to apply pressure will only increase, no matter how controversial they are.”Guaidó called for unity among the different sectors of the opposition. This is a key goal in a scenario where the splits have multiplied among and within the opposition parties.  Above all, there are differences over the roadmap to be followed because a growing opposition sector no longer recognizes Guaidó as the so-called “president” or even as a leader.U.S. connives, props up Guaidó  The next few days will be important for the Guaidó strategy which aims to connect the international hype with national issues and to generate a scenario of mass mobilizations. Guaidó has been incapable of doing that for almost the entire last year, a situation that has been aggravated by the loss of his presidency of the National Assembly in early January of this year.It was largely because of that legislative defeat that the United States created Guaidó’s international roadshow in an attempt to relegitimize him and indicate to the pro-coup sector of the opposition what the next steps will be to try to overthrow President Maduro — or if that’s not achieved — to change the current correlation of forces.In the meantime, discussions are progressing between the Maduro government and increasingly broad sectors of the opposition — with international support, such as Russia expressed with the visit of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov [on Feb. 7] — to go forward with the National Assembly elections to be held this year.It is not yet known when elections will occur or when, prior to that, a new National Electoral Council will be formed. The United States has already announced that it will not recognize that election and will seek to escalate the pressure to overthrow the Maduro government.last_img read more

Report: The Best Real Estate Markets of 2020

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Report: The Best Real Estate Markets of 2020 Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago WalletHub recently released a rundown of the most-current state of affairs in 2020’s housing market. The data provide a comprehensive guide to help all those looking to jump into the market to make wise and informed decisions, be they real-estate investors or home buyers looking for the house of their dreams, WallerHub reported.The housing market is ever-changing and high-stakes, and according to the real estate experts, this year is certainly no different. In fact, WalletHub reveals that 2020 has found the housing market in an extremely rare position. This is because mortgage rates have dropped a staggering amount, hitting historical lows. Such low rates are a welcome reprieve for the vast majority of Americans, many of whom are continuing to grapple with the financial strains that the current pandemic have plagued them with.As for those Americans who are not struggling as much with the financial pinch from the pandemic, and who have some extra money to spend, now seems the perfect time to invest in a home. Of note within the report’s findings was the fact that among this tightening of supply and increase of demand in the housing market today, home prices have been steadily on the rise throughout the pandemic (on average). As for rental rates, those are reported to still range the entire spectrum, especially according to what region of the nation you are in.Advice for those perusing the market are offered some expert advice by WalletHub. The first tidbit includes the encouragement to look beyond tangible factors like square footage and style and really shoot for long-term growth, equity, and profit, as these are the things that most drive an uptick in property values. This criteria, according to WalletHub, is more relevant to residential home buyers versus investors.WalletHub further revealed not only what’s happening on the market today, but where home buyers should look to purchase and dwell. WalletHub was able to determine the best local real-estate markets in the country by comparing 300 cities of varying sizes across 24 key indicators of housing-market attractiveness and economic strength.According to WalletHub’s data, the top five best places to buy a house include Boise, ID; Seattle, WA; Frisco, TX; Nashville, TN; and Gilbert, AZ (respectively).Details about main findings are charted on WalletHub.com, along with rankings by city size. Finally, as part of the research, experts weighed in on their findings.

Notably, today Mehta also assured the Bench, led by Justice Arun Mishra, that IIT Bombay would in fact oversee the project.”IIT Bombay will proceed with the smog tower installation project”, asserted the Solicitor.When the matter had come up for consideration on July 29, the SG had informed Court that IIT Bombay had decided to back out of its role in overseeing the implementation of the project. The Bench, through Justice Mishra, had expressed great displeasure upon learning the same and stated that they would take strict action and hinted at drawing contempt proceedings against the institute. The Bench had also questioned the seriousness of the Government in seeing the project through.Thereafter, on July 30, Mehta had informed Court that the Government had communicated with officials from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT Bombay), pursuant to which, the Institute would be signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and other stakeholders.After considering the submissions during the course of that hearing, the Apex Court had directed the Centre to file a comprehensive affidavit highlighting all details about the smog tower project in Delhi and why the same was not completed as per Court Orders.Pursuant to the same, today the Solicitor apprised the Court of the real time progress and the responsibilities of the various stakeholders in the project.It was informed that the National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) will construct the tower, while TATA will be responsible for the installation work.Mehta assured a contract depicting all details will be drawn up and ready within 3-4 days. Additionally, the SG also suggested that National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ltd. be impleaded as a party to this case.The matter will now again be taken up on Monday, August 10, when the Centre will be expected to give a clearer timeline regarding the work towards the proposed project.During the previous hearing, SG Mehta had submitted that it would realistically take around 10 months to complete the project.”I have been told that the drawing of the tower will be made available by IIT Bombay in 2 months. The technical part will take 3 months and setting it up will take approximately 10 months”, informed Mehta.In December 2019, a Supreme Court Bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra directed the Centre and Delhi Government to ensure that a smog tower, essentially large-scale air purifiers, was set up in the Connaught Place area of New Delhi to tackle the annual problem faced by the national capital in winters. This was to be done within 3 months, as a pilot project. The concept and technology involved was discussed with a professor of IIT Bombay, who was part of a High-Power Committee looking into various technologies and options to tackle air pollution. Thereafter, the Judges gave IIT Bombay the responsibility to take up the project.The Centre had also assured the Court that smog guns and other similar measures would be in place, especially in areas of the national capital where pollution levels are highest. The IIT Bombay Professor, however, had opined that it would not be feasible to set up smog towers before August 2020.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The couple, hailing from Faridabad, submitted before the Court that they had married each other and wished to reside together. However, it was alleged that the girl’s family was against their relationship and had even lodged a false FIR against the boy, under Section 346 (Wrongful confinement in secret) of IPC. It was submitted that both of them had attained the age of majority and as a proof of their date of birth, they produced copies of Aadhaar cards. A Single Bench of Justice Avneesh Jhingan however refused to give protection to the couple, on noting that the girl’s date of birth was manipulated in the documents, seemingly to prove that she is a major. The couple claimed to have married on January 29, 2021. As per the documents placed on record, the girl had attained the age of majority only a week before the date of marriage, i.e. on January 23, 2021. The typed copy of the girl’s Aadhar Card indicated her date of birth as January 23, 2003. However, the Judge noted that the photocopy of the Aadhar Card only mentioned the year of the girl’s birth and not the full date. The Judge observed, “Typed copy of aadhaar card of petitioner No. 1 is attached as Annexure P-2 wherein date of birth is mentioned as “DOB: 23.1.2003″. On the basis of the said date of birth, it is claimed that at the time of marriage, she has attained majority. On perusal of photo copy of aadhaar card of petitioner No. 1, it is evident that date of birth is not mentioned and year of birth is mentioned as 2003. It appears that typed copy has been manipulated in order to portrait the picture to the Court that both the petitioners are major.” Taking strong exception to such manipulative conduct, the Judge observed that it is not a fit case for interference and dismissed the petition with cost of Rs. 25,000/-.

Fraternity hazing might be involved in UC Riverside student’s death, police say

first_imgKABC-TV(LOS ANGELES) — Police said they are investigating whether hazing could have played a role in the sudden death of a 20-year-old University of California Riverside student this weekend.Tyler Hilliard died after going to a nearby mountain with other members and pledges of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, according to his mother, Myeasha Kimble.Kimble said her son, who was a business major at UC Riverside, was excited to pledge Alpha Phi Alpha this year.Alpha Phi Alpha “is one of the oldest Greek fraternities and it’s a black organization. Martin Luther King was a part of that organization,” Kimble told ABC News. “He did his research. He felt that this was a good fit for him because this organization appeared to be involved in community service.”On Saturday night, Hilliard went with other fraternity pledges to Mount Rubidoux, ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles reported. Medical aid was called to Mount Rubidoux around 9 p.m. Saturday, and Hilliard was taken to a hospital where he was alert and talking to staff, Riverside Police spokesman Ryan Railsback told ABC News.‘An oath of silence’: The secret world of fraternity pledging and how it contributes to hazing deaths“When I got to the hospital I asked one of the pledgemasters, the ones that leads the pledges … he said that they were about to start their hike at Mount Rubidoux and Tyler was complaining of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,” Kimble said.Then Hilliard collapsed and the fraternity members called 911, Kimble said.From the hospital, Hilliard’s family called the Riverside Police early Sunday, saying they were suspicious about why Hilliard had ended up in the hospital and that hazing was possibly involved, Railsback said.“There were texts in my son’s phone in regards to paddling,” Kimble explained. “There were also text messages on the phone where he was getting hit with a cactus.”Hilliard then went into medical distress, Railsback said. He was taken to intensive care and died.Kimble and the rest of his family are now left searching for answers.“He was kind, he was sweet … he had a bright future ahead of him,” Kimble said. “He was loving to everyone he came across… he was just a good person, a good son. He never gave his father and I any problems whatsoever.”While Hilliard’s autopsy report is still pending, police are “conducting an investigation as a suspicious death at this point,” Railsback said. “We are looking into concerns the family has about possible hazing.”UC Riverside said in a statement that the “community grieves the loss of our student Tyler Hilliard.”“We’ve shared our condolences and offer of support with Tyler’s family and have made counseling services available to students, faculty, or staff who knew him,” the school said. “UCR Student Affairs and UCPD are collaborating with the Riverside Police Department to determine the circumstances regarding Tyler’s passing.”Meanwhile, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity’s corporate headquarters said it has suspended all activities at its UC Riverside chapter.The fraternity is “deeply saddened” to learn of Hilliard’s death and is investigating along with the university, the fraternity said.“Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. does not condone and strictly prohibits any illegal acts, including hazing in any form, whether physical or mental, as a term or condition of membership in the organization,” the fraternity said in a statement Monday. “Any member found violating the fraternity’s anti-hazing policy will be immediately suspended with a recommendation for expulsion.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
