The new Aviva Stadium at Lansdowne Road

first_imgThursday Aug 12, 2010 The new Aviva Stadium at Lansdowne Road The new Lansdowne Road, now called the Aviva Stadium, was officially launched recently with the first rugby game there since 2006. A Leinster/Ulster team beat the Connacht/Munster side 68-0. This clip tells you more about the historic grounds reconstruction, as well as shows a few highlights from the one sided game.The stadium is built on the site of the old Lansdowne Road in Dublin at a cost of 400m and will seat 50 000 at capacity. It will be used for both rugby and football, with the first rugby international set to take place between Ireland and the Springboks on November 6th this year.The first ever Test was played there in 1878, and while the pitch is the same, the stadium itself is a far cry from the old ground, despite the seating capacity being fairly average for an international stadium.A little over 35 000 turned out to watch the first ever rugby game to be held in the spectacular new stadium, a match that featured under-20 players comprising the two mixed sides. Only 10 of the 44 players that were on show are contracted to provincial academies, so it was very much an occasion for the future of Irish rugby.The Leinster/Ulster team were way too strong as they ran out convincing winners.

This one family house is situated on the northern coast of the lake Mälaren in central Sweden. It is set in a former recreational area where, in recent years, most of the small weekend houses has been either extended or replaced by catalogue housing. A starting point has been the simple constructions of rural buildings and the architecture of Swedish barns and warehouses, some traces of which can still be seen within the type house sprawl of Tidö-Lindö. The clients, a couple in their sixties, wanted a house for themselves including space to accommodate visiting children and friends. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe brief is defined in two parts: a complete living floor at entrance level, and an upper floor that is only partly finished representing a future possible extension within the house. Aiming to meet a need for cheap construction the plan is strictly based on a cc1200 module. Due to this and to the use of standard building components the costs was kept extremely low, thirty to fifty percent less than average. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanIn contrast to the deep red exterior, the interior space is very light. It is characterized by the three light shafts that rise through the attic to let the sunlight enter also from above. Two are situated at the short walls of the open living room, the third marks the position of the stair at the south gable. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanCombining rooms in a suite with transverse passages the plan offers several alternative movements through the house. Windows are placed to further enhance the difference of the interior spaces by alternatively directing the views low towards the garden, far away towards the lake and the horizon, or high up at the trees and the sky above. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe prismatic exterior is clad with an over sized wooden panel made of heartwood of slowly grown pine and treated with red tar, a way of reinterpreting the technique of wooden roofs that has been in use for centuries in Scandinavia, mostly in the north and on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanFreely placed windows in two sizes are punched through the roof and the facades. Fixed brise-de-soleil shutters complement the varied interior light as well as the pattern of shadow and light of the outside.

Large contingents held banners reading “Dump Trump” and demanding the U.S. get out of its military bases. Filipino police turned a water cannon on protesters.Demonstrators in south Korea days earlier rallied in the thousands to reject the U.S. war threatened against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea that endangers the lives of everyone on the Korean peninsula.In support of sovereign foreign policy, independent of U.S. imperialism, protesters gathered in Seoul’s Gwanghwamun Square, an historic center, on Nov. 7.

Venezuelan authorities impose 2-million-dollar fine on private TV station

He added that the fine did not mean the media organization would be suspended. He set a payment deadline of 31 December.In June, several riots took place at the El Rodeo jail, exposing the failings of the Venezuelan prison system such as poor hygiene, overpopulation and violence.Globovision, the only opposition channel still authorized by the government to broadcast, was accused of promoting criminal activity and provoking disturbances of the peace with its coverage of the riots.The charges were based on a law setting out the public duties of radio, television and the electronic media, which authorises the suspension of media organizations on such grounds.Maria Fernanda Flores, vice-president of the channel, said Globovision “will do what it can to find the cash to pay the fine and continue broadcasting.” However, she said she believed it was impossible for the company to pay the sum and it could ruin the channel financially.

Mulvaney Requests Zero Funding for CFPB in Q2

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Mulvaney Requests Zero Funding for CFPB in Q2 in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago CFPB Federal Reserve Funding market mulvaney 2018-01-18 Staff Writer Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago In his first request to the Federal Reserve for funding, Mick Mulvaney, acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) requested for zero dollars in funding for Q2. The Federal Reserve directly funds the consumer agency, with directors sending their requests for funding for the quarter.According to the New York Times, Mulvaney, in a letter to Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, said that the bureau did not need any new funds to operate during the second quarter. The bureau has on deposit $177.1 million to cover emergencies and contingencies, which Mulvaney said were too large. He intended to spend approximately $145 million from that contingency fund.Mulvaney argued that those additional funds that the Fed would have otherwise earmarked for CFPB, could be turned over to the Treasury Department to pay down a tiny amount of the government’s debts, the Times report stated.According to political news website Politico, Richard Cordray, Former Director of CFPB had requested $217.1 million in the last quarter to fund the agency. Mulvaney said that Cordray had maintained a reserve fund in case of overruns or emergencies, but he didn’t see any reason for that since the Fed has always given the bureau the money it needed, the website said.This letter from Mulvaney comes on the heels of an announcement by the agency that it was issuing a call for evidence to ensure that the Bureau was fulfilling its proper and appropriate functions to best protect consumers. In the coming weeks, CFPB will be publishing in the Federal Register a series of Requests for Information (RFIs) seeking comment on enforcement, supervision, rulemaking, market monitoring, and education activities. These RFIs will provide an opportunity for the public to submit feedback and suggest ways to improve outcomes for both consumers and covered entities.

New York attorney general opens probe into police shooting of man who pointed pipe at officers

first_imgABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has opened an investigation into the death of a black man who was allegedly pointing a metal pipe at police officers in Brooklyn when they shot and killed him Wednesday.Schneiderman’s press secretary, Amy Spitalnick, made the announcement Thursday via Twitter, adding that “we’re committed to conducting an independent, comprehensive, and fair investigation.” Witnesses told ABC station WABC that the man, identified as Saheed Vassell, was well-known in the Crown Heights neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, where the shooting happened. They said Vassell was believed to be mentally ill but generally harmless.Eric Adams, the borough president of Brooklyn, thanked the state attorney general for launching a probe, saying in a statement Thursday, “We must all pursue justice.”“I messaged Attorney General Schneiderman this morning to thank him for opening an investigation into the police shooting of Saheed Vassell in Crown Heights. Tragedies like this are why we fought for an independent Special Investigations and Prosecutions Unit. We must all pursue justice,” Adams said.The New York City Police Department received several 911 calls on Wednesday just before 5 p.m. ET about a man pointing what was described as a “silver firearm” at people along Utica Avenue near the corner of Montgomery Street, according to Chief of Department Terence Monahan.“Three different 911 callers described a man with a gun, pointing it at people in the street,” Monahan said in a statement Wednesday night. “There is also video from commercial establishments along Utica Avenue that shows a man brandishing what appears to be a firearm — pointing it at people.” Excerpts from the transcripts of 911 calls released by the New York City Police Department show that several callers reported a man with a “gun.”“There’s a guy walking around the street. He looks like he’s crazy, but he’s pointing something at people that looks like a gun,” one caller tells the dispatcher. “And he’s like popping it as if, like, if he’s pulling the trigger.”In a clip of surveillance footage released by the New York City Police Department, Vassell is seen walking down the street wearing a baseball cap and a brown jacket. He suddenly lurches forward at someone pushing a cart into a convenience store and points what appears to be a metal object at the individual.In another clip, Vassell allegedly does the same thing to a person walking and holding hands with a child.Officers responded to the area where they encountered a man who matched Vassell’s description and approached him.“The suspect then took a two-handed shooting stance and pointed an object at the approaching officers, two of whom were in uniform,” Monahan said. “This is corroborated with video we have reviewed.”Four officers fired their weapons, striking Vassell. They then “immediately” administered aid to him and requested an ambulance.Vassell was transported to Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn’s East Flatbush neighborhood, where he was pronounced dead, according to Monahan. Vassell’s father, Eric, told WABC his son was bipolar but wasn’t on medication. He was unsure why Saheed was holding a pipe, but he told WABC that his son sometimes worked as a welder.Although he admitted that pointing a pipe at people may have caused panic, Eric Vassell said the officers acted rashly.“Police always have a choice,” he told WABC in an interview Thursday. “They should not train them to kill. They should train them to protect life, to save life as much as possible.”“And the way they killed him, they didn’t give him no choice,” he continued. Eric Vassell mentioned other incidents happening around the country in which black men have been fatally shot by police. Last month in Sacramento, California, 22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot and killed by officers who believed he was armed with a gun, but all that was found on him was a cell phone.“You cannot be a cop and all you should think about is your life, you know, you will lose your life so let me take a life to save my life,” Eric Vassell told WABC. “And that is what is happening today in the police force.”Saheed Vassell’s mother, Lorna, told WABC she is furious with the officers for shooting her son without asking him to drop the object or put up his hands.“I’m really angry and I’m really upset because the police did not have to shoot my son down like that,” she said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
