Ireland v South Africa – The Preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Ireland will be looking to make it a memorable first Test match at the Aviva Stadium by beating a depleted South Africa. They haven’t won a game since March, and need to get back to winning ways to keep their World Cup hopes alive.The Springboks arrived in Dublin just two days before kick off with 13 stars missing due to injury, including captain John Smit, Ricky Januarie and Schalk Burger, but Ireland know that toppling the world champions will still be a tough ask.Ireland forwards coach Gert Smal will be relishing the chance to take on his former team tomorrow. Boks stand-in captain Victor Matfield is partnered by Bakkies Botha in one of the world’s most potent second-row partnerships, but Ireland supporters will be hoping that Smal still knows how to unravel them. Additionally, a front row of Tendai “The Beast” Mtawarira, Bismarck du Plessis and Jannie du Plessis will provide a typically physical battle up front – a perfect platform for Tony Buckley, picked ahead of John Hayes, to prove himself.Elsewhere, Luke Fitzgerald makes his first Test start in 12 months on the wing, but the home team are without Paul O’Connell, and scrum-half Tomás O’Leary. This will be a big challenge for Eoin Reddan, who steps in at 9, and I think the hosts will miss the physicality of O’Leary tomorrow.Jonny Sexton deserves his starting position over Ronan O’Gara, and if he can repeat what he’s been doing for Leinster and keep the score ticking over and then Kidney will be delighted.For South Africa Patrick Lambie, Man of the Match in last weekend’s Currie Cup final for the Sharks, has earned a place on the bench, and Ruan Pienaar is starting in his preferred position of scrum-half, just to add the pressure on Reddan.Neither team has had a great few months, with Ireland’s recent poor form and the Springboks coming last in this year’s Tri-Nations, and both sides will be looking for a big performance in Dublin. But I’m picking Ireland to beat the world champions tomorrow – South Africa have lost on their last three visits to the Irish capital and it’s not looking like they’re going to rectify this tomorrow.But what do you think? Who will win? Is this South Africa team strong enough to topple Ireland?Ireland: R Kearney; T Bowe, B O’Driscoll (capt), G D’Arcy, L Fitzgerald; J Sexton, E Reddan; C Healy, R Best, T Buckley; D O’Callaghan, M O’Driscoll; S Ferris, D Wallace, J Heaslip.Replacements: S Cronin, T Court, D Ryan, D Leamy, P Stringer, R O’Gara, K Earls or A Trimble or P Wallace.center_img South Africa: G Aplon; B Basson, Z Kirchner, J de Villiers, B Habana; M Steyn, R Pienaar; T Mtawarira, B du Plessis, J du Plessis, B Botha, V Matfield, D Stegmann, J Smith, P Spies.Replacements: Chiliboy Ralepelle, CJ van der Linde, Flip van der Merwe, K Daniel, F Hougaard, A Jacobs, P Lambielast_img read more

Mount Lawley House is the architects own home, built on a 180m2 triangular lot. This challenging site also has the busy Vincent Street to its north and a 1.5m sewer easement to the rear boundary. Regardless, this prime location is wedged between Hyde Park and bustling Beaufort Street, and just a few kilometers from Perth. The design represents the client/architect’s belief in function over convention and that small, odd parcels of land can be successfully and affordably developed into interesting and spacious buildings.Save this picture!© Dion RobesonWorking with the council and neighbors ensured a smooth planning approval resulting in 170m2 of the gross area being provided.  It demonstrates to the public how much effective space can be created from small lots and the importance of architecture to achieve this. The geometric forms of the house are bold and unprecedented in its immediate surrounds, however, adds to the mix of cathedrals, block apartments, and character homes that prevail.  The local council was supportive of the modernist aesthetic and encourage a mix of new and old buildings, enhancing the vibrancy and diversity of the area.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe brief called for a minimal home and home office for a professional couple who work from home.  The 28m2 home office engages with the street level, with the main living areas above.  The 70m2 living area balances the clients desire to engage with the vibrant surrounds and the need for privacy.  High-level expansive glass opens up the entire living area to the Hyde Park treetops, omitting any view of the home’s backyards below with the exception of character chimneys. 2-way glass in the projecting steel box on the Vincent Street side acts as a retreat for sitting and watching the street below. Every opening was considered and sight lines are drawn to ensure privacy where needed. Save this picture!© Dion RobesonSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Dion RobesonLow E, acoustic glass dulls peak hour sounds. Circulation is minimal and every space has a use or two, with ample of inbuilt storage and furniture. Engineers were engaged early to enable building on the sewer set-back line (through piling) and to support the 650km steel box window. A local artist has been commissioned to do a mural on the boundary wall. Its strength lies in its allocation of the limited budget to produce a high spec home with luxury finishes, valuing the quality of spaces over quantity.Save this picture!© Dion RobesonKey features such as the waterfall skylight glass over the stair, the steel box window and the expansive stacking glazing in the living area were possible due to savings in other areas. The overall contract price of $464,000 + GST came in lower once all provisional sum adjustments were made. It is sustainable firstly in the amount of land per person, which is drastically lower than average. Low E acoustic glass, exposed concrete floor, and cross ventilation were all incorporated reducing the need for air conditioning. The house has become a positive talking point in the Mount Lawley community and is known as “the triangle house”.Save this picture!© Dion RobesonProject gallerySee allShow lessChina Light and Textile City Fashion Show Center / WAU DesignSelected ProjectsClifton Hill House / Herriot Melhuish O’Neill ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Triangle House / Robeson Architects Products translation missing: “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Perth, Australia Houseslast_img read more

Carter Stadium construction continues to make progress. Photo by Livia Lavender.The expansion of premium seating in Amon G. Carter Stadium likely won’t be complete by the start of the fall season, according to TCU Athletics. Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati said the heavy rains in September and October caused a 30-day delay in construction. More than half of the steel has been installed and once that’s finished, construction officials should be able to have a predictable completion date, Donati said.The $100 million expansion is expected to add more than 1,000 club seats,  48 boxes, two private clubs and 22 luxury suites. “I think it will make the stadium louder because now the top of the east side will match the top of the west side,” Donati said. “I think it will capture the sound and potentially make for a louder environment”This project has increased the numbers of newer and younger donors supporting the team, he said. Construction on a $100 million addition to Amon G. Carter Stadium has been delayed. Donati hopes the new seats will boost ticket sales. Former TCU linebacker Ty Summers said he is excited about the construction and the enhancement of the fan experience. The new space will be used for many other events post-football season. The architecture is designed to be a multifunctional space that the community can take advantage of.“The views looking over campus and looking into downtown Fort Worth will be spectacular,” Donati said. “We will have a space where you can comfortably sit 600 to 700 people for banquets.” Livia Lavender Facebook Twitter ReddIt Twitter Livia Lavender read more

Court acquits former policeman of masterminding of Ely Binoya’s murder

first_img PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Court acquits former policeman of masterminding of Ely Binoya’s murder Follow the news on Philippines to go further News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today condemned the acquittal on 6 March of former police officer and village chief Ephraim Englis on charges of masterminding the murder of journalist Ely Binoya on 17 June 2004.A regional court in the southern city of General Santos found there was insufficient evidence against Englis but it rejected a request for the acquittal of a second suspect, Alfonso Toquero, who is accused of shooting Binoya.“This trial is absolutely unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “No witness was questioned by the court, and the family, which was not there when the verdict was issued, took three days to get a copy of the court’s decision. How could it issue such a verdict when the evidence of Englis’s guilt was confirmed by several testimonies and video footage filmed shortly after the murder by the TV station ABS-CBN?”The victim’s widow, Grace Binoya, told the Center for Media Freedom and Responsability (CMFR): “We are all very saddened by this decision. Please help us.” She added that she intended to turn to the justice department and the supreme court for help.————————————————————————-26.08.2004Ely Binoya case: two suspects turn themselves inEphraim “Toto” Englis and Alfonso Toquero, who were wanted for the murder of journalist Ely Binoya, surrendered to the police on 23 August but are insisting on their innocence. Englis, a former policeman and village chief, is alleged by police to have masterminded the murder.In conclusions issued on 12 July, the prosecutor in charge of the case accused Englis, Toquero and two other persons of participating in the murder. A warrant for their arrest was issued a month later.Binoya had accused Englis and other local leaders of corruption and Binoya’s wife remains convinced of Englis’ guilt.__________________________________________________________________________________18.06.2004Murder of radio journalist who criticised local politiciansReporters Without Borders today voiced dismay at the murder yesterday in the southern Philippines of Eliseo “Ely” Binoya, a radio journalist known for outspoken political commentary on local Radyo Natin in Malongon, and urged the authorities to do everything possible to ensure that those responsible receive an exemplary punishment.Binoya, 49, who was also the radio station’s manager, was returning to Malongon from the nearby city of General Santos by moped when he was gunned down by two persons on another moped. He died instantly after being shot him three times in the back. “Some hit-men have been arrested for previous murders of journalists but the instigators have never been brought to justice,” Reporters Without Borders complained in a letter to interior minister José Lima. “As a result, the Filipino judicial authorities allow the instigators to continue silencing their press critics with complete impunity.”The organisation urged the minister to ensure that the police and judicial authorities not only investigate Binoya’s murder thoroughly but also continue carrying out thorough investigations into all the previous murders of journalists.Binoya had just brought a complaint against three associates of Malongon mayor Teodorico Padernilla, who had often been the target of corruption allegations by Binoya. He said in the complaint that the three men – Kolot Padernilla (the mayor’s nephew), Bobot Toreta and man know as “Balong” – had attacked him physically on 7 June. He also said he had received death threats on several occasions.General Santos police chief Willie Dangane said the three men were suspects in Binoya’s murder and were wanted by the police.Binoya is the second journalist to have been killed this year in the Philippines because of his work. Rowell Endrinal of radio DZRC was gunned down by two hit-men on a motor-cycle on 11 February in the central city of Legaspi.A record number of seven journalists were killed in the Philippines in 2003, the highest total since democracy was established in 1986.

D.A. Jackie Lacey will be Keynote Speaker at Altadena Baptist Church’s Black History Celebration

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Jackie Lacey, the first woman and the first African-American to serve as L.A. County’s District Attorney since the office was started in 1850, will be the keynote speaker at Altadena Baptist Church’s thirty-fifth annual Black History Celebration, on Sunday, February 17th.The program, which will begin at 5:00 p.m., will also include reflections on the continuing struggle toward equality in America, asking the theme question “Can We Make a Difference?” There will be inspiring gospel music by the church’s choir and soloists. Afterwards, all those attending will be invited to enjoy a free soul-food fellowship meal.D.A. Lacey grew up in the Crenshaw area, the daughter of parents who lived in Georgia during a time of deep segregation and discrimination. Lacey says, “The word back then was, come to L.A. where you can get a job and where there are opportunities. I grew up in a home where my father was very strict. I couldn’t just go out anywhere. There were two things we had to do, we had to go to church and we had to go to school.”Lacey took advantage of her opportunities, excelling in her educational studies. She graduated from U.C. Irvine in 1979, with a BA in Psychology, then attended USC Law School, graduating in 1982. She has been with the L.A. County D.A.’s Office since 1986, first as a Deputy D.A., then as Chief Deputy D.A. in 2011. She was elected to the position of D.A. in 2012, in what was considered a major upset. Since then, she has been systematically attacking many of the major issues being faced in today’s law enforcement. She has been quoted as saying, “There’s nothing like the feeling of making a difference in history.”Jackie Lacey currently lives in Granada Hills, with her husband David. The couple have two adult children, Kareem and April.Altadena Baptist Church has been a racially-integrated congregation since the mid-1970s, and this annual Celebration has become one of its most meaningful and important events of the year. Recent speakers have included TV news anchor Beverly White, Fuller Seminary’s Dr. Joy Moore, Seattle Pacific University professor Dr. Brenda Salter-MacNeil, and Metropolitan Baptist Church Pastor Rev. Tyrone L. Skinner.For more information regarding the Celebration, please call the church office, at (626) 797-8970.
