New Zealand v England 2: Five things we’ve learnt

first_imgWork to do: Danny Care puts in a box-kick but England at times struggled when booting the ballCalmer kicking game requiredFast and loose does not cut it when the All Blacks are in meticulous mode. England aimed for a high-tempo attacking approach, but strayed into the realms of recklessness. Game management went missing and wayward kicking was the prime culprit. With due respect to David Wilson, when a  prop shows better awareness of when to clear than the half-backs, there are problems.Lancaster urges his players to seize field position by making kicks ‘contestable’ (think well-weighted high balls and grubbers that encourage chasers). Too many of England’s 27 punts this weekend fell in a murky middle ground. Now and then, there was a suicidal reluctance to get the ball off the park as well. Danny Care over-hit a couple from the box and Owen Farrell’s efforts often fell far infield – a cardinal sin opposite Ben Smith and Julian Savea. All these mistakes contributed to a paltry return of 39% territory and 40% possession, which isn’t a foundation from which to beat the All Blacks.Power player: will Billy Vunipola return to the starting team for the final Test in Hamilton?Selection waters far from clearBar Sam Burgess, Lancaster has now seen every player in competition to feature in the 2015 World Cup and this trip has confirmed England’s outstanding strength in depth. Even so, a bigger challenge begins now – finding out the best means of channelling such quality.The Tuilagi wing experiment must be shelved, with Chris Ashton coming in for Luther Burrell. Tuilagi and Twelvetrees should form England’s midfield this weekend. Though Geoff Parling was phenomenal in Dunedin, making 21 tackles and guiding the lineout, Courtney Lawes and Joe Launchbury have to start too – likewise Dylan Hartley and Billy Vunipola. Honing first-choice combinations ahead of next year has to be the primary goal.Two games to save this tour“We’re still learning, but now it’s about results.” That was Twelvetrees’s post-game take. He was spot on. In the past fortnight, England have confirmed they are capable of a bona fide tilt at the Webb Ellis Cup. This week, the developmental rawness has to be stripped away. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Time to reflect: Chris Robshaw brings his team together after the 28-27 defeat in New Zealand ON THE surface, this was another step forward for intrepid England. To get within a single point of New Zealand, to match them in terms of tries scored and to do so almost 12,000 miles away from Twickenham amounts to a decent representation of where this squad sits in the global pecking order – right at the front of the chasing pack alongside South Africa.But Tom Wood’s despondence at the end of the game spoke volumes. Despite rallying in the closing stages, he knew the tourists had not done themselves justice. This may have been the closest England have come to the All Blacks since overturning them in December 2012, but it was also the most underwhelming performance in those three subsequent losses. Richie McCaw’s boys were brilliant in patches, but they could have been beaten.England have earned the right to be judged by world-class standards, to be hard on themselves even when they are edged out by the best. With that in mind, here are five things we learned from another enthralling Test…Half-hour of powerSometimes in sport you can pinpoint momentum swings. On Saturday, there were two. First, Ben Smith hunted down Manu Tuilagi for a miracle tackle and turnover. Then, shortly after half-time, an over-ambitious offload from Billy Twelvetrees burst things open.With England leading 10-6, the Gloucester centre made a half-break and nearly freed Tom Wood up the middle, his flick instead hitting turf. Brodie Retallick picked up and carried to his own ten-metre line. Exactly six passes and 17 seconds later, the magnificent Smith dotted down under the posts.It was a wonderful score that demonstrated New Zealand’s unparalleled ability to transition between dogged defence and devastating attack – a stunning sucker-punch. Even more impressive was how the All Blacks identified weakness and rose to their very best for the next 30 minutes, dominating every contact situation with an irresistible increase in intensity. Two more tries killed the contest and snatched the series. Steve Hansen’s men had given a lesson in world-champion ruthlessness.Break point: Manu Tuilagi runs clear late in the second half – but he couldn’t make it to the lineBack-line confusion, not back-line cohesionThis encounter highlighted the problems of England’s tour scheduling more harshly than last week’s thriller in Auckland. New Zealand progressed with just one change to their 23, while Stuart Lancaster saw rust seep in as he tried to reintegrate his Premiership finalists.Largely consistent selection up front – Tom Wood coming in for James Haskell the sole switch – meant Graham Rowntree’s pack initially made inroads, dominating tight exchanges from the solid base of an accurate lineout and well-organised mauling. However, a back-line containing four new faces did not fuse together.Individual brilliance was not the problem – England made six line breaks in the opening 40 minutes. Support lines did not match up, though, meaning just ten points were scored before the break. Tuilagi should have converted his breakaway chance, but Mike Brown’s follow-up – which inexplicably ended up 20 metres away as Ben Smith made the tackle – defined the gulf in finishing prowess between the teams. When England clicked there with two consolations – but it was too late.center_img Victory in Canterbury on Tuesday is hugely important. Ed Slater is the perfet man to lead that effort and the side is more than strong enough. After that, Lancaster’s squad should be buoyed for one last push.Remember, New Zealand are the first visitors to Twickenham in November. Scraping home on Saturday would give England a shot at two consecutive triumphs over the All Blacks – a simply mammoth fillip that would evaporate any deep-lying inferiority complex. This long, winding season is significant until its final whistle. Chris Robshaw’s side lost by just one point in Dunedin on Saturday – but what lessons to they need to take from the defeat into this weekend’s third Test?last_img read more

Nestled into the native shrubs of the Martha’s Vineyard coastline, East House’s site-cast concrete façade welcomes tendrils of coastal vines while providing a robust barrier to New England’s coastal weather. The ten-inch-thick concrete walls are cast in the form of a collection of concrete boxes, relieved with sustainably harvested Spanish Cedar window frames, and oriented to achieve both subtle and dramatic responses to the landscape.Save this picture!DiagramDuring design, a commissioned study revealed a rate of coastal bluff erosion that made both client and architect extremely uncomfortable with the siting of the residence. The solution was to cast the floors – formerly wood-framed – in concrete, making each box a three or four-sided structural unit that could be individually lifted and moved to a location far from the bluff, should erosion occur. The 4,000 square foot house is thus divided into concrete boxes –  individually liftable with all interior finishes in place, and interstitial corridors – light wood framed zones that can be easily removed and rebuilt if the building is moved.Save this picture!© Chuck ChoiSave this picture!© Chuck ChoiEach box has a rugged concrete exterior and is finished with interior stone floors. The interior walls are clad in Douglas Fir and Alaskan Cedar, which are soft to touch, but extremely durable in the rough coastal weather. Circulation travels along the interior figure of the boxes through interstitial spaces both rough-framed and finished in wood, and is choreographed to an ever-more-revealing experience of the site. Strategic through-views to surrounding greenery direct visitors from the entrance to a library and living area.Save this picture!© Chuck ChoiSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Matthew SnyderEmbedded in the natural landscape, East House is nearly invisible from points further up the slope. The concrete shell is cantilevered over the landscape, allowing for expanses of glass along five walls. Operable windows pull back, and the gap between the concrete units amplifies the sound of the ocean, bringing it along with sea breezes through the entire house. A planted roof caps each box individually, mitigating run-off while further visually integrating the building with the lush landscape. Rainwater is collected in the interstitial roofs, directed to a single Mahogany flue, and cast into a below-ground cistern for use in irrigation. Geothermal wells use the earth’s thermo-conductivity to temper living spaces, vastly reducing the size and cost of HVAC equipment. With radiant heating, calibrated window openings, and the thermal mass of concrete, the house creates natural ventilation and buffers summer heat gain. Save this picture!© Chuck ChoiProject gallerySee allShow lessTezuka Architects on Their Formative Experiences, Architecture as a Cure and Finding…InterviewsCall for Entries: Melbourne Tattoo AcademyIdeas Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794755/east-house-peter-rose-plus-partners Clipboard ArchDaily Area:  4000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Photographs CopyHouses•Chilmark, United States CopyAbout this officePeter Rose + PartnersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChilmarkUnited StatesPublished on September 07, 2016Cite: “East House / Peter Rose + Partners” 07 Sep 2016.

For them, this was a conscious step to cut off from the urban clutter and experience absolute solitude. Staying true to their brief, our response was an unimposing structure tailor-made for the beautiful serene site. The site is a hillock on the outskirts of the city of Pune, India with panoramic views of the city and mountains.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilThe owners of this house who are descendants of one of the aristocratic Maratha families had envisioned a serene precinct which would take them back to their cultural roots and closer to nature when they set out to build this second home. This was our primary reference for designing the house. Pune was a seat of major political activity of the Maratha Empire around the 18th century.Save this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Hemant PatilThe city has various historical and architectural marvels such as hill forts, palaces and residences called ‘wadas’ which have a distinct architectural style with elaborate stone and brick structures, intricately designed openings, splendid arches and doorways. All this gets reflected in the architecture of this house to fit it aptly in its context. Stone was used on the façade as a response to the visual imagery of the heritage structures in the city while the sloping roof was demanded by the heavy rainfall which this area experiences in the monsoon season.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilThe house is a compact composition of intricately detailed spatial experiences, a contemporary interpretation of vernacular domains. The linearity in planning is complemented by dynamism in the form. The begins at a court with a minimally designed deepstambha (light lantern in stone) and frangipani marking the sense of arrival.

The system consists of three different materials and techniques viz. steel columns and roof members, load bearing composite walls and RCC cantilevered slab. Advantages of all these materials have been articulated to form an innovative structural system.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilThere are three levels as a part of the site development; the lower-most level at which the site is entered, the level of the house above it and another level above the house which has a large kitchen garden. There is a series of steps to access this kitchen garden from the house. Various indigenous plants and trees have been planted here which include fruit-bearing trees to attract birds. A variety of grasses have been planted to add a sense of softness and flow to the rustic look of the stone walls of the house.Save this picture!© Hemant PatilProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Morrison Residence / Reitsma and AssociatesSelected ProjectsCoordenada Design Center / HADVD ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Hermitage Retreat / Studio Hu’maneSave this projectSaveHermitage Retreat / Studio Hu’mane Architects: Studio Hu’mane Area Area of this architecture project Area:  278 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959716/hermitage-retreat-studio-humane Clipboard India Lead Architect: Houses “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959716/hermitage-retreat-studio-humane Clipboard CopyAbout this officeStudio Hu’maneOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPuneOn FacebookIndiaPublished on April 11, 2021Cite: “Hermitage Retreat / Studio Hu’mane” 10 Apr 2021.

Oxfam sees aid funding suspended over DRC abuse allegations

first_imgThe Commission’s statutory inquiry into Oxfam GB opened in February 2018, to examine the charity’s governance, including leadership and culture around safeguarding matters, and its management, policies and practices. It examined the charity’s handling in 2011 of the complaints about its staff in Haiti, as well as its wider approach to safeguarding, both historically and at that time, which included supervising an independent review around safeguarding in the charity. Oxfam recently confirmed that it has suspended two members of staff as part of an investigation into abuses of power that include bullying and sexual misconduct. In the latest development, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office announced yesterday (Wednesday 7 April) that it was suspending aid funding until the new allegations were resolved. In a statement, it said: Melanie May | 8 April 2021 | News “Given the most recent reports, which call into question Oxfam’s ability to meet those standards, we will not consider any new funding to Oxfam until the issues have been resolved.” “The steps we are taking in the Democratic Republic of Congo reflect our commitment to tackle abuses of power. We are aware of the FCDO statement and are seeking further information. The Charity Commission and FCDO have been notified appropriately and we will continue to keep them informed as the investigation concludes its work.” Tagged with: Oxfam In a statement, Oxfam said: Its announcement came after it was reported across the media that more than 20 whistleblowers had signed a letter to Oxfam’s leaders in the UK urging immediate action to address claims of senior managers abusing their powers in the charity’s offices and projects in the DRC.

Qassem Soleimani in early January, tens of thousands of people protested in over 80 cities across 38 U.S. states.

The Pentagon is also refusing to comply with the decision of the Iraqi Parliament for the withdrawal of U.S. troops.The danger of war is far from over and the need for a much larger anti-war movement is clear. U.S. aggression against Iran and continued occupation of Iraq still threaten another disastrous, bloody war.On Jan. 25, actions will take place around the world to oppose a new war in the Middle East.  Organizers are encouraging all those opposed to war to turn up and speak out. Actions are already scheduled in over 70 U.S. cities and in a dozen other countries.  A list of scheduled mobilizations can be found at tinyurl.com/we555kt/.Initiators for this call include the International Action Center, Answer Coalition, CODEPINK, Popular Resistance, Black Alliance for Peace, National Iranian-American Council, Veterans for Peace, U.S. Labor Against the War, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, United National Anti-War Coalition, Pastors for Peace/Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization, International Workers Solidarity Network, FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere), Alliance for Global Justice, December 12th Movement, World Beyond War, People’s Opposition to War, Imperialism, and Racism, Dorothy Day Catholic Worker, Dominican Sisters/ICAN, Nonviolence International, No War on Venezuela, Food Not Bombs and many other anti-war and peace organizations.For more information, go to tinyurl.com/yx7f7gxx/.  last_img read more

Iran must now cooperate so that the special rapporteur can be sent as soon as possible.The authorities have been persecuting the political opposition, human rights activists and journalists ceaselessly ever since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s reelection as president in June 2009.

Episodic silicic volcanism in Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula: Chronology of magmatism associated with the break-up of Gondwana

first_imgNew SHRIMP U–Pb zircon, Rb–Sr whole-rock, and 40Ar–39Ar data are presented for the Jurassic silicic volcanic rocks and related granitoids of Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula. U–Pb is the only reliable method for dating crystallization in these rocks; Rb–Sr is prone to hydrothermal resetting and Ar–Ar is additionally affected by initial excess 40Ar. Volcanism spanned more than 30 My, but three episodes are defined on the basis of peak activity: V1 (188–178 Ma), V2 (172–162 Ma) and V3 (157–153 Ma). The first essentially coincides with the Karoo–Ferrar mafic magmatism of South Africa, Antarctica and Tasmania. The silicic products of V1 are lower-crustal melts that have incorporated upper-crustal material. The geochemistry of V2 and V3 ignimbrites is more characteristic of destructive plate margins, but the presence of inherited zircon still points to a crustal source. The pattern of volcanism corresponds in space and in time to migration away from the Karoo mantle plume towards the proto-Pacific margin of Gondwana during rifting and break-up. The heat required to initiate bulk crustal fusion may have been supplied by the spreading plume-head, but thinning of the crust during continental dispersion would also have facilitated anatexis.last_img read more
