Misinformation often spreads faster and is seen by a broader audience than legitimate news. This means that when misinformation is spread about a topic like the coronavirus disease or the U.S. 2020 Census, it can pose a serious threat to public health and social systems as individuals are more likely to be exposed to misinformation than expert advice.“This resource is designed not only to educate our audience about misinformation but also to offer concrete steps for individuals and organizations on how to identify and limit its spread,” explains Rebecca Linder Blachly, director, The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations. “While misinformation is often relatively harmless, there are targeted disinformation campaigns designed to cause harm and to shut down important conversations about significant issues our society faces. We want our audience to have the knowledge and resources to recognize and respond to these damaging campaigns.”In addition to concrete tips on how to identify and limit the spread of misinformation, this resource offers an overview of the misinformation landscape, the structure of disinformation campaigns, and the use of misinformation in elections.Support for this resource, as well as continued advocacy for policy and appropriate safeguards to reduce content that is false and designed to cause harm (also known as disinformation) are key elements of Resolution MB 016 Misinformation and Elections passed by the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church at their February 2020 meeting.Learn more about the Office of Government Relations and their work here.To sign up for the Episcopal Public Policy Network, click here.

Fulgence Ouedraogo dropped badly in the lineout

first_imgTuesday Feb 19, 2008 Fulgence Ouedraogo dropped badly in the lineout On the weekend I watched the Top 14 meeting between Montpellier and Biarritz Olympique. The game was a hard fought and tight encounter, but just before the end young flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo suffered a bizarre injury in the lineout. Ouedraogo is Burkina Faso born and another in the line of African born flankers that turn out for France. He made his debut for his country, France, on the New Zealand tour of last year. He is a strong ball carrier and excellent at the breakdown. He’ll no doubt be a star performer for France in the future and is most definitely going to feature strongly in this years Six Nations. His Montpellier team mates didn’t do him any favours though when he got tossed up really high in the lineout, but then not brought back down to ground safely. This is a lesson in how NOT to support your lineout jumpers.

Justice for George Smith after brutal ‘shoulder to head’ tackle is deemed legal

first_imgWednesday Sep 12, 2018 Justice for George Smith after brutal ‘shoulder to head’ tackle is deemed legal Wallaby great George Smith was red carded for what was deemed to be a dangerous shoulder to the head of Jackson Wray on Saturday, leading to an independent disciplinary hearing that took place on Tuesday evening. It was the first red card of the 2018/19 Premiership season.ADVERTISEMENT*NOTE: To log in on the new site you need to reset your password. Full details hereThe Bristol Bears flanker was clearly dismayed with referee Andrew Jackson’s decision, at the time telling the official “I’m playing rugby” after he was shown the card.Smith was deemed to have committed an act contrary to Law 9.13, but contested the charge successfully, with it dismissed by the panel. He is free to play again immediately.Panel chair Gareth Graham said: “The independent panel had the benefit of viewing this incident from a number of different angles. The footage did not clearly show whether or not there was direct contact between the player and the head of Jackson Wray.“The panel heard evidence from Wray who said that he could not remember whether there was direct contact with his chin; he said that this was a big collision which was well-timed.ADVERTISEMENT“The player explained his actions in detail and assisted the panel by demonstrating how the tackle had been carried out. He demonstrated how the position of the ball was important as to how the tackle situation developed, as it created an effect whereby it caused Wray to bounce backwards in the collision.“The panel concluded on the balance of probabilities that the initial contact did not involve any direct contact to the head of Jackson Wray. Wray was off-balance in the tackle and the force of the tackle and the effect of the ball being between the two players caused Wray’s head to ‘whip’ backwards.“On Wray’s own evidence, there was then a glancing contact to the underneath of his chin which was incidental to an otherwise legitimate tackle. In the panel’s view, and taking into account all of its rugby experience, that glancing contact did not pass the red card threshold.”It’s a big call, considering that player welfare is so heavily sanctioned these days, particularly around even the slightest bit of contact with the head.You can watch an official, longer video of the incident hereADVERTISEMENTBristol Bears head coach Pat Lam was also of the opinion that it wasn’t a red card, stating after the match: “If you put it into context of other decisions, I don’t think it’s any more than a yellow card. It’s certainly a penalty – without a doubt. A yellow card? Possibly. It needs to be clear and obvious but the number of replays they used suggested it wasn’t clear and obvious,” he said.Wray left the field for a head injury assessment but was unable to return.While the scores were tied at 18-18 when Smith was sent off, Saracens took full advantage of the extra man for a 44-23 home win.credit: premiershiprugby/rugby.com.au Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Swartberg House / Openstudio Architects

This passive solar new-build house on the edge of the Great Karoo desert in South Africa acts as a poetic and flexible agricultural object. Located on the outskirts of the town of Prince Albert, at the foot of the Swartberg Pass, a World Heritage site, the shifted geometries of the plan are a consequence of arranging the spaces in response to the surrounding landscape. Save this picture!© Richard DaviesA harvester of light and air, adjusted by its inhabitants in response to the changing natural elements. The brief demanded that the house bring the inhabitants into a closer relationship with the natural world. Enhancing their awareness of the spectacular natural landscape of the Swartberg and the Karoo. With significant changes in light, heat and wind, at different times of day and during different seasons; a ‘fabric first’ approach was adopted to the design and planning of the house; a focus on passive, rather than an active means to heat and cool the building.Save this picture!© Richard DaviesThe house was built by local builders with a minimal cost of less than £200,000. It uses a limited palette of robust materials, which connect to the previous use of the site as a sheep farm – brick-on-edge floors, ash, local roughcast lime-washed plaster and white ceramic tiles. Utilising local labour and materials connect the home with the traditional building style in the Karoo. Save this picture!© Richard DaviesThe patterned brick-on-edge floors and roughcast plaster walls and ceilings are kept consistent throughout the exterior and interior spaces, allowing for an ambiguity between inside and out. They are deliberately non-domestic and unrefined. The finely detailed joinery, made in oiled ash, acts as a counterbalance to the more robust materials and differentiates between the sculptural qualities of the solid structure and the elements made to be touched and used in everyday life.Save this picture!© Richard DaviesWith the intense heat of summer the thick-walled house can be shuttered, while in winter the large openings act as sun catchers, allowing the dark brick floors to radiate the stored warmth of the sun in cool evenings. Save this picture!© Richard DaviesThe day/night, light/dark character of the house is emphasized by large glazed doors, which slide away into roughcast plaster walls, and small scattered openings allow shafts of light to penetrate into shadows, cleverly configured according to the positions of stars in constellations visible from the upper roof terraces. Save this picture!© Richard DaviesThe large elevated roof terraces act as a modulated raised ground surface. They allow far views of the mountains, and bring the inhabitants closer to the clear, star-filled skies. Openings and spaces are designed to bring near and far landscapes into the way in which the house is experienced, collapsing the distance between nature and everyday life.Save this picture!© Richard Davies Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796424/swartberg-house-openstudio-architects Clipboard Architects: Openstudio Architects Area Area of this architecture project Swartberg House / Openstudio ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSwartberg House / Openstudio Architects Photographs:  Richard Davies Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects 2015 CopyHouses•South Africa Save this picture!© Richard Davies+ 35 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796424/swartberg-house-openstudio-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Swartberg House / Openstudio Architects “COPY” Year:  Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Project gallerySee allShow lessThis Kickstarter Campaign is 3D Printing Tokyo in 100 PiecesArticlesThese Stunning Photos Commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Alvaro Siza’s Pool On The …Articles Share “COPY” South Africa CopyAbout this officeOpenstudio ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSouth AfricaPublished on October 08, 2016Cite: “Swartberg House / Openstudio Architects” 08 Oct 2016.

House of Would / Elii

This house is located in a 1,316 m2 sloping plot of land in the district of Pedrezuela, 45 km north of Madrid. There is little to no vegetation in the section closest to the street, which nevertheless provides a good viewpoint on the surrounding lush natural landscape. The building is made up of seven wooden-structure modules symmetrically identical surrounding a central court. Each module is dedicated to a different domestic situation, according to its functional needs. The modular structure, as well as the scale of the rooms allows the alteration of this functional logic, serving as a support for possible future layouts.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe house adapts to the plot of land in a layered fashion depending on the different degrees of privacy needed: private rooms are hidden from the street and adapt to the terrain giving a feeling of being in direct contact with the plot. The more public spaces are closer to the street and gain height gradually, until they tower over the landscape and look towards the horizon over the rest of the rooms. A series of small bridges serve as transition elements between the different areas and accommodate the different levels of privacy.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe ensemble is closed by a wooden envelope, generating a ventilated façade and roof. The central courtyard takes over part of the house’s garden. It includes a light roof that gives light to the façade, a sort of Chinese lantern that envelops the courtyard and allows the members of the household to enjoy this outside room. The wooden roofs are arranged according to a spatial variation law which, as well as conforming to local regulations, collects rain water and directs it to the courtyard to water the garden.Save this picture!SectionSomebody turns up at an architectural firm and states her case: “many of my happiest memories are associated to different spaces, such as a container in the middle of a forest, an “alpine type” wooden house, or living surrounded by horses and other animals”. Some of these experiences, backed with images, took place in the past and in other countries. The team of architects was entrusted with the task of editing these spatial memories and transferring them to a new space in the outskirts of Madrid. The house is a post-production space for memories, desires and experiences. The industrialised building system and the assembly of the dry-mount structural wooden panels shorten the execution periods. There is an empty plot of land today, but, in less than two weeks, a house will have appeared.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe Project is executed based on the rules set by the building system, which is based on the assembly of a parts-kit. The industrialised system transfers part of the construction effort to the workshop.The program is organised around detail. Construction becomes production. The modular system of the house entails a functional, flexible organization that makes the alteration of the distribution of the rooms possible. Architecture as a game field: To live is to make a move.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánDifferent ways of interacting with the plot are presented. From the private rooms, which are in direct contact with the environment, to the public areas, the areas of social representation which look out into the landscape and profit from the views. Like the song says, “No tocarte y pasar todo el día junto a ti”(To not touch you and spend the day by your side). The organisation of the house allows the house to be fragmented into a smaller one without using the whole of the building. A house within a house. The Project includes the construction of a support made of elementary finishes made up of few elements. The end user will finish the house at a later date. The house itself is the hardware. Daily practices are its software.Save this picture!Floor Plan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/323302/house-of-would-elii Clipboard Houses Area:  210 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project This project was originally published on 24 January, 2013.Project gallerySee allShow lessBlinco Street House / Philip Stejskal ArchitectureSelected ProjectsNanjing Wanjing Garden Chapel / AZL ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year:  2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/323302/house-of-would-elii Clipboard House of Would / EliiSave this projectSaveHouse of Would / EliiSave this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánHouses•Pedrezuela, Spain Spain Photographs CopyAbout this officeeliiOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPedrezuelaWoodIcebergHousesSpainPublished on June 02, 2019Cite: “House of Would / Elii” 02 Jun 2019.

How Technology Can Help Analyze Harvest

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News How Technology Can Help Analyze Harvest How Technology Can Help Analyze Harvest How Technology Can Help Analyze HarvestDan EmmertCombines today not only harvest a crop, they also harvest lots of data. Now technology is helping growers analyze that data into recommendations for next year. Almost every combine today has a yield monitor, and it is the instrument watched the most closely by the combine operator. Yet, is that yield data accurate? Dam Emmert, with DuPont Pioneer, says monitors need to be calibrated when you switch hybrids to make sure the data is accurate, “Because we are making more and more decisions on that data. If the monitor is not calibrated, it is garbage in garbage out.” Emmert told HAT the calibration may need to be done several times during harvest, as you move from earlier planted crops to later planted crops, ”As the corn dries down the calibration can change. Even differences in hybrids and test weights can effect calibration.”Technology is also helping us do a better job of assessing our nitrogen levels. Emmert says the Encirca software, for example, really helped growers estimate how much nitrogen they lost during the heavy rain periods this year. “There were a few growers who had Encirca tell them they might be deficient in nitrogen,” he stated. “They applied some additional nitrogen in the area indicated and got a nice yield boost at harvest.” He said some other growers did not make the application and, at harvest, wished they had. These are just two examples of how technology is helping growing gather more data and make more use of it.Listen to the complete report with Dan Emmert under the agronomy page.

She has been in full time private practice in South Pasadena since 1989, working with individuals across the life span, and has a special interest in couples and family therapy. Sally has served on the faculty of Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, and taught at several psychoanalytic institutes in the Los Angeles area. She has published in the areas of the treatment of bi-cultural couples, and on the recovery of hope post dehumanizing trauma.Sponsored for ordination by All Saints, Sally was ordained as a priest in January 2014 and she is a part time member of the clergy staff, bringing a focus on healing of psyche and soul; whole and holy development across the life span; interfaith healing traditions; and interfaith couple and family development.All Saints Church, 132 N.

Today in History

first_img Facebook Twitter Today in History Today is Thursday, Feb. 4, the 35th day of 2021. There are 330 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 4, 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet leader Josef Stalin began a wartime conference at Yalta. On this date: In 1783, Britain’s King George III proclaimed a formal cessation of hostilities in the American Revolutionary War. In 1789, electors chose George Washington to be the first president of the United States. In 1861, delegates from six southern states that had recently seceded from the Union met in Montgomery, Alabama, to form the Confederate States of America. In 1913, Rosa Parks, a Black woman whose 1955 refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Ala., city bus to a white man sparked a civil rights revolution, was born Rosa Louise McCauley in Tuskegee. In 1944, the Bronze Star Medal, honoring “heroic or meritorious achievement or service,” was authorized by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in Memphis, Tennessee, by entertainer Danny Thomas. In 1974, newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst, 19, was kidnapped in Berkeley, California, by the radical Symbionese Liberation Army. In 1976, more than 23,000 people died when a severe earthquake struck Guatemala with a magnitude of 7.5, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. In 1983, pop singer-musician Karen Carpenter died in Downey, California, at age 32. In 1997, a civil jury in Santa Monica, California, found O.J. Simpson liable for the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. In 1999, Amadou Diallo, an unarmed West African immigrant, was shot and killed in front of his Bronx home by four plainclothes New York City police officers. (The officers were acquitted at trial.) In 2004, the Massachusetts high court declared that gay couples were entitled to nothing less than marriage, and that Vermont-style civil unions would not suffice. Ten years ago: President Barack Obama appealed to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to focus on his legacy and begin an orderly process to relinquish the power he’d held for 30 years; however, Obama stopped short of calling for Mubarak’s immediate resignation. Iraq’s prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, said he would return half of his annual salary to the public treasury in a symbolic gesture that appeared calculated to insulate him against anti-government unrest spreading across the Middle East. Five years ago: In their first one-on-one debate, Hillary Clinton accused Bernie Sanders of subjecting her to an “artful smear” by trying to cast her as beholden to Wall Street interests while Sanders suggested the former secretary of state was a captive of America’s political establishment during the Democratic faceoff in Durham, New Hampshire. Infuriating members of Congress, a smirking Martin Shkreli took the Fifth at a Capitol Hill hearing on his practice of jacking up drug prices as CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals. One year ago: Thousands of medical workers in Hong Kong were on strike for a second day to demand that the country’s border with China be completely closed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus; the territory reported its first death from the virus and the second known fatality outside China. Addressing a nation and a Congress sharply divided over his impeachment, President Donald Trump delivered a State of the Union address in which he hailed a “Great American Comeback” on his watch; Republican legislators chanted “Four More Years,” while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up her copy of Trump’s speech as he ended the address. Daniel arap Moi, a former schoolteacher who became Kenya’s longest-serving president, died at 95. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Jerry Adler is 92. Former Argentinian President Isabel Peron is 90. Actor Gary Conway is 85. Actor John Schuck is 81. Rock musician John Steel (The Animals) is 80. Singer Florence LaRue (The Fifth Dimension) is 79. Former Vice President Dan Quayle is 74.

Distressed Property Investing in the Coming Year

However, Brumer’s article explores two possibilities.The market could experience “an increase in foreclosures due to the large number of homeowners still out of work” or “a decrease in foreclosures due to new policies that could extend foreclosure moratoriums,” Brumer noted.”While many signs point to an increase in foreclosure properties hitting the market, in reality, no one knows for sure,” she said.The following is what Brumer believes each situation would mean for the industry.She notes that indicators right now point to an increase in foreclosure activity. “It’s unlikely many of those currently delinquent will be in a different situation in order to reinstate their debt obligations …” Without significant aid, it’s extremely likely foreclosure starts will start to increase steadily over the year, she added.”If scenario 1 does play out as described, investors can expect to see an uptick in foreclosure properties hitting the market around late summer 2021 to early spring 2022,” she said.She writes that at first it is unlikely that pricing for foreclosure properties will reflect large discounts that REO investors saw after the Great Recession. With the heightened demand for real estate and values continuing to increase, the additional foreclosure properties would merely “balance demand and supply and likely slightly lower values a bit.”Brumer says, “I personally think dramatic discounts even with foreclosure properties are unlikely in 2021.”On the other hand, investors could continue to see more of what they experienced this year, that is, high delinquencies and fewer foreclosures.”This would happen if the new Biden administration extends forbearance and/or foreclosure moratoriums or offers new protections that limit a lender’s ability to foreclose in the coming year,” she wrote, adding that in this case, “real estate values will continue to rise as demand outpaces supply.”She concludes that scenario two is more likely, but that many unknowns remain.Read the article in full on Fool.com.
