The All Blacks outclass Ireland in New Plymouth

first_imgSunday Jun 13, 2010 The All Blacks outclass Ireland in New Plymouth New Zealand trounced Ireland 66-28 in New Plymouth on Saturday as the tourists suffered a humiliating defeat that has now been made worse by the news that Jamie Heaslip has been suspended for five weeks for dropping his knee into an All Black player.Dan Carter became only the fourth ever player to surpass 1000 points in Test rugby as the home romped to a 38-0 lead in the first half before Ireland could score. New Zealand remains unbeaten against Ireland, taking the win record to 23 matches over a period of 105 years.Heaslip was given a straight red card in only the 15th minute of the game, putting his team on the back foot in what was already going to be an uphill battle. He was seen to have kneed Richie McCaw in the head, twice. He admitted it at a hearing earlier today. He did however deny that he made deliberate contact with McCaws head.“The judicial officer, Michael Cashman, came in with a medium-level ruling and they also took into account his being contrite and owning up to it and his attitude at the tribunal itself,” said the Ireland team manager. He will take no further part in the tour.Ronan Ogara was also shown a card in the first half, just a yellow, but it meant Ireland were down to 13 men for ten minutes, a period in which Jimmy Cowan scored twice, while prop Ben Franks also scored.They went on to score nine tries in total, but loosened their defense in the second half as Ireland found some form and scored a few of their own.“The way we started, compared with where we’ve been in the previous few years, I was happy with,” said All Blacks captain Richie McCaw. “I guess there’s still a lot to work on but I’m happy with the way we started.“I’m pleased that all the blokes who had their first games played pretty well. I guess when it comes a bit easy you can lose focus on defence and we leaked a few tries in the second half that we probably shouldn’t.”Highlights of all the other big games will follow soon.

Hua-Hin Hut / Sea Monkey Coconut

first_img “COPY” Houses Hua-Hin Hut / Sea Monkey CoconutSave this projectSaveHua-Hin Hut / Sea Monkey Coconut Photographs:  Wachirasak ManeewatanaperkText description provided by the architects. For us, this renovation project was not just to make the building looks better but to find a possibility of enhancing the relationship between existing spaces, in and out. The change of use has a big impact on all elements that define spaces. Hua Hin Hut is a conversion of a small warehouse in Hua Hin, Thailand to be a house. The idea is to setting up the dwelling unit on the site where the dweller can live, work, growing food in order to reduce a traveling distance in everyday life. Save this picture!© Wachirasak ManeewatanaperkWe started the project by looking at the opportunity to open up this enclosed building. In a tropical country, the air played an important role to connect the indoor and outdoor spaces. The comfort of an indoor space depends on the location and the type of its opening. There are two issues to be considered here, the flow of the air and a mosquito. In this project, we designed a house, which have a seamless in&out door space so the air and people lived in are free to flow. By putting a mosquito net over the house, it makes the patio useable and free from any insect during the night. All windows and doors can also keep open for the whole night. It is a choice of the dweller to sleep under the roof on the rainy day or just sleep on the patio and watching a clear night sky without worrying about a mosquito. In the end the building has been transformed from an object which contain an isolate space to be an element that define a multi-function and seamless space connect to the whole site.

The project Five Houses proposes to realize the dream of living in a forest dominated by ancient pines and lush vegetation, in a privileged place. The site is located 3 minutes from the junction of the new Toluca – Avándaro road, which includes a bicycle path. Its location is strategic, between the center of Valle de Bravo and Avandaro Golf Club, 10 minutes from the lake. For the construction of the project we took into consideration saving the largest possible number of trees in the nearly seven thousand square meters of land area, in order to respect the environment as much as possible. This, together with the use of the slope of the site, accentuates the feeling of being immersed in the forest from the built spaces.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Rafael GamoThe project: shared privacyThe design and layout of the elements of each house as well as the project on the ground create a sense of privacy. Thus, the inhabitants of Five Houses enjoy the tranquility of the forest.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoTo access the project and each of the houses, we drew up a dirt road from the entrance, passing through the parking areas of each house and ending in a common paddle tennis court, with minimal disruption to the environment.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoFive Houses is a horizontal condominium with private area, divided into five lots totaling 7,000 square meters, of which 5,800 are green areas. In addition to the built area, each lot has a large open field where it is possible to integrate a jacuzzi.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe houses: balanced spacesEach house is a sum of spaces with contemporary spirit, where comfort is an essential aspect. Their rural location, with full respect for nature, and clearly avant-garde design, are their main attractions.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoBalance is one of the central features of the houses. It is felt everywhere: between the buildings and the nature that surrounds them; between the proportion of the built space and the site; between the privacy of each house and their openness to the forest; between the property of each house and the common area, and between the materials used, light and open, and at the same time, solid and welcoming.Each house occupies an area of 300 square meters, divided into three volumes:1. Living area and Terrace, separated by sliding glass doors that expand and link the spaces, or divide them. Both benefit from fresh wind during warm seasons. In cold weather, a fireplace covering two walls heats both spaces. The view opens to the forest, through the cantilevered roof onto the terrace, and gives the feeling of being in nature.Save this picture!© Rafael Gamo2. Four Bedrooms, connected with the family area, maintain their independence. Three of them are on the ground floor, one of them with private terrace. The family room is on the first floor and the large master bedroom, whose bathroom is characterized by a very special element: its roof is glass, overlooks the treetops.Save this picture!Plan3. The service area is located on a separate rectangular volume, which rises above the sloping ground and includes kitchen, pantry, laundry room and utility room.In addition to these three volumes, there are two interior courtyards whose function is to link the spaces.

Updated – Flu hits TCU early – more than 50 cases reported

first_imgFacebook Twitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025 ReddIt Brandon Kitchin Linkedin ReddIt FILE – In this Sept. 16, 2014 file photo, a sign telling customers that they can get a flu shot in a Walgreen store is seen in Indianapolis. Kids may get more of a sting from flu vaccination this fall: Doctors are gearing up to give shots only, because U.S. health officials say the easy-to-use nasal spray version of the vaccine isn’t working as well as a jab. Needle-phobic adults still have some less painful options. But FluMist, with its squirt into each nostril, was the only ouch-free alternative for children, and has accounted for about a third of pediatric flu vaccinations in recent years. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings, File) World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution + posts printNot even two weeks into classes and the flu has already made its way around campus. As of Thursday, there were 56 confirmed cases of the flu on campus according to the TCU Health Center.Kelle Tillman, associate director of the Health Center, said about 1,500 flu vaccines – which are free to faculty, students and staff – have been given on campus so far by the Health Center and the Harris College of Nursing. Flu shots are also available at pharmacies such as Tom Thumb, Kroger, Albertsons, CVS and Walgreens. Tillman said ways to prevent getting sick include increasing efforts to keep common areas such as the dorms and study rooms clean, using good hygiene and watching the way you and others cough and sneeze. Junior chemistry major Gianna Mejia works at the Kroger Pharmacy and said she is lucky she isn’t sick after being around the line of people with the flu trying to get treatment. She said once the pharmacy sent out an email saying they were giving out shots, people came in that day.“It came as a real shock when people started showing up with symptoms,” Mejia said. “Flu season typically starts in October. Usually we’re prepared with all the typical medications for the flu when the time comes around, but since it came so early we were wiped clean.”Grant Garvin, a senior communications major, said he got sick the weekend before school started and had to miss two days of school.“It was definitely tough to be able to keep up with classes and to try not to get behind in classes but fortunately I’m not behind,” Garvin said.After going to classes Monday and Tuesday he went to the Health Center and found out he had the flu.He said the Health Center told him to stay home from classes resting up until he was able to go a full day without running a fever. It took him two days of rest. Garvin said he had gotten the flu vaccination earlier in the year.Students were advised to seek a healthcare provider if they begin to experience flu-like symptoms in a campus-wide email from medical director of the Health Center Jane Torgerson on Friday, Aug. 25. Those symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, feeling tired and sometimes vomiting and diarrhea.Students who have a fever over 101°F are advised to isolate themselves and avoid going to class for 24 hours to help prevent spreading sickness.Tillman also shot down the longtime campus-wide rumor that a certain percentage of students getting sick would shut down the university, no such rule exists. The TCU Health Center is providing free vaccines to students, faculty and staff this week. For more information, questions or concerns, call the Health Center at 817-257-7940 or visit the Tarrant County Public Health website.

Teenager went into custody to gain street cred

first_imgNewsTeenager went into custody to gain street credBy Staff Reporter – January 31, 2014 773 Facebook WhatsApp Email Twitter Linkedincenter_img by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] SIXTEEN-year-old teenager insisted that he be taken into custody at the Oberstown Detention Centre to gain “street credibility”.The boy, who can not be named for legal reasons, was charged with the theft of a bicycle on St Patrick’s Day, a breach of the Public Order Act in July and a burglary last October.Appearing before Judge Eugene O’Kelly last week, he asked his solicitor Sarah Ryan not to seek bail and allow him be remanded in custody at the boys detention facility.He was remanded on the charges and ordered to appear in court a week later.However at last Monday’s sitting of the court, Ms Ryan said the boy contacted her after just three nights and asked her to seek bail on his behalf. She told Judge O’Kelly that he asked her to get him out as he didn’t want to be there any more.“There was an element of him trying to gain street credibility by going inside, but that quickly changed”, she added.Appearing in court a week later, the boy said he would go back to school and obey a curfew and all requirements of his bail.Judge O’Kelly said he would grant the application for bail after there was no Garda objection.The case was adjourned until February 18.

Mortgage & LGBT Leaders Work Toward Diversity and Inclusion

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Mortgage & LGBT Leaders Work Toward Diversity and Inclusion On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, the American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC), in partnership with Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of Chicago, hosted a town hall discussion with leaders from the Chicago LGBT community. The meeting was the second in a series of town halls to be convened by the AMDC with LGBT community leaders from major cities across the nation.“This conversation was a catalyst toward a new industry-wide conversation around solutions for fairness in LGBTQ housing and mortgage finance,” said Steve Thomas, Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago.As John Rieger, Executive Director for the American Mortgage Diversity Council, explained, “The American Mortgage Diversity Council is a membership-driven organization of companies in the financial services industry working collaboratively to advance the conversations around diversity and inclusion by focusing on challenges faced by minority- and women-owned businesses, creating solutions through advocacy, education, and training. This latest town hall, the second in a series, provided information to be used in the creation of a white paper on the subject for the financial services industry.””I’m thankful that the AMDC has stepped forward to identify and fix the barriers that LGBT individuals face in obtaining home ownership and affordable housing,” said Jerome Holston of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce.Charmaine Brown, Diversity and Inclusion Leader at Fannie Mae, said, “Discussing these issues and examining possible solutions are important steps toward equality and inclusion for the LGBT community.”“The AMDC is leading the industry in extending an olive branch to the LGBT communities across the country,” said Michelle Matteson, Senior Operations Manager at Bank of America. “I had the opportunity to attend the AMDC LGBT town hall in Dallas, Texas, and was amazed at the perspectives and stories that were brought to the table. I am proud to be a part of the AMDC LGBT events, as I am both representing Bank of America and the LGBT community. I applaud the AMDC for their efforts to get to know the LGBT community and their unwavering support as an ally.”The schedule of topics for the Chicago AMDC town hall included Homeownership and Fair Housing in the LGBT Community, Workplace Inclusion, and Gender Identity Discrimination, and LGBT Youth Homelessness.“My CEO gave me the opportunity to get involved in something that I was passionate about,” said Kim Morris, SVP, Tax Operations, Accumatch. “I looked at several different options before landing on the American Mortgage Diversity Council. Being an out, lesbian executive, it seemed like a cause I could get behind and help make a difference in my industry. My expectations have been exceeded twofold by the AMDC. When I suggested that we have a town hall to gather data about LGBT, the AMDC stepped up and not only set up a roundtable in Dallas but in three additional cities. Sitting at the first roundtable in Dallas, listening to the stories and understanding how the mortgage industry can make a difference, was simply amazing.”Participating organizations for the event included Accumatch, Associated Bank, Bank of America, Chicago House, CSH, Equality Illinois, Fannie Mae, Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, Flagstar Bank, Lambda Legal, LGBT Chamber of Commerce of Illinois, Milwaukee Metropolitan Community Church, Metropolitan Milwaukee Fair Housing Council, National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals, National Tax Search, and Wintrust.“The partnership between the AMDC and the LGBT community is paramount to begin working towards solutions that will help build a better tomorrow,” Matteson said. “The journey is long, there is much to be done, but this is a great place to start.”For more information on the AMDC, click here to view the official website.
