Springboks do enough to beat Wales and take the series

first_imgSunday Jun 15, 2008 Springboks do enough to beat Wales and take the series South Africa stuttered to a 37-21 victory over the Six Nations Champions at Loftus Versveld in Pretoria on Saturday . The win means that the Boks take the series 2-0, but were their own worst enemies as the Welsh defended stoutly and refused to let them repeat their exploits of the week prior.Early tries from Jean De Villiers and Ricky Januarie had it looking like wed see another rout from the home side, but Wales came back nicely with a stunning try by scrum half Gareth Cooper after some quick thinking at the front of the lineout.The first twenty minutes of the game saw South Africa experimenting with an expansive game that saw some intricate backline moves and very little structure, exactly what won them the World Cup last year. It didnt work and it was clear to see that theyd need to change tactics if they wanted to secure the win, with the turning point in the match being Coopers try.The gutsy Welsh defence, who only conceded two tries during the entire Six Nations campaign, was as strong as ever, and a far more difficult nut to crack this week than last.The brilliance of Shane Williams, (and a lovely kick ahead for him by Bakkies Botha!) put Wales in the lead after 32 minutes. Williams scooped up the loose ball with ease, then shot down the left wing with four would-be defenders ahead of him. He darted inside, then out, dazzling them with his speed and proven finishing ability from open play to score a memorable Welsh try, adding to his prolific try scoring ratio.It wasn’t enough though, as the Boks brought on fresh replacements in the second half, which brought with them added impetus and control. Another close range try for De Villiers, some good kicking by ever impressive flyhalf Butch James, and a late try from Bismarck Du Plessis all meant that it was job done, and a successful series win for new coach Peter De Villiers.

In Gheisizadeh residential apartment project, our main effort was to provide the maximum possible outdoor space to the residents, while creating the maximum visual privacy from outside to inside. The initial idea was to create a flexible and variable building façade. The intention was to reach the desired result by changing the openings, “While giving the residents the right to choose their level of privacy”. Save this picture!Diagram 2Recommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0MetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsFiber Cements / CementsULMA Architectural SolutionsPaper Facade Panel in Leioa School RestorationThe effort was to, while respecting the introversion aspect of the residential units, consider implementing a terrace to protect the disturbing severe direct sunlight in summer and benefit from the sunlight in the cold weather of winter because of the warm and dry climate of Shiraz. As a result, after the trial and errors on different materials, we chose the metal punched sheets with furnace colour coating. These tiles are connected to the terrace by the hinges and can bend on each other. When the hinges are closed, there is no visual connection from the outside; In addition, due to building front elevation which is located at the southern façade and also 80 degrees sun radiation in the summer noon of Shiraz, this type of facade controls the disturbing summer light.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffWe implemented green elements in the vertical wall of the facade to induce more “sense of home” and to link with natural materials which controlled light and view in residential spaces. Jasmine Dutch and Pich Amin-o-dowleh were our plant choices. The windows are framed with boxes that were extruded from the façade surface, created shadows on the windows and the south facade. The frames were installed in a scattered pattern due to the visual aspect of the design and prevent monotony on the façadeSave this picture!© AmirAli GhaffariSave this picture!Floor PlansAt night, in addition to the brightness of the light reflected from the punched holes, the small square openings on these sheets with coloured lights on the grey facade were created and ultimately all of these factors help to create a wall with visual and functional flexibility in the facade.  Another notable point was the creation of an integrity between the residential building and the yard, which caused the sheets to extend along the walls. At the entrance, the flooring continues inside the yard to the sidewalk to emphasize its unique identity for the building.Save this picture!© AmirAli GhaffariSave this picture!Diagram 1Project gallerySee allShow less71sqm.

Dave Schechter remembered

first_imgDave Schechter and his daughter.Dave Schechter had two great loves in his life. One was his class: the workers and oppressed. This led him to join Workers World Party. He was a member for 45 years.Dave was born in 1942 in Yonkers, N.Y. His parents were communists. His father, William, drove a taxi; his mother, Ruth, was an office worker.Dave attended Rensselaer College and worked as a math teacher in the New York City school system. Like many young people his age, he was swept up in the great mass movements of the 1960s: the fight against racism and the Vietnam war. In 1968, he joined Youth Against War and Fascism, the youth group of Workers World Party.The year 1968 was an intense year in the global class war. For instance, in January the Vietnamese people launched the mighty Tet offensive against the U.S. imperialist invaders. In April, the racist U.S. state apparatus assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King, and the entire country exploded in outrage.For those of us in YAWF, the 1960s were street-fighting years. We were always marching with our bright orange banners, defying the cops who attacked us with clubs, horses and gas. We got arrested so much it seemed like we lived in the Criminal Court building at 100 Centre Street.Whether it was protesting the Vietnam war or defending the Black Panthers, Dave was always on the front line. He helped disrupt fascist presidential candidate, George Wallace, when Wallace spoke at Madison Square Garden, and Richard Nixon’s first inaugural parade in Washington, D.C. He was arrested in 1968 protesting the pro-war movie, The Green Berets, and in 1969, when we marched into the middle of a City Hall ceremony welcoming the murderous Israeli prime minister, Golda Meir.Dave was a member of the United Federation of Teachers, but he marched in support of the Black community when the UFT’s racist leadership called a strike against community control. Two years later, however, Dave did go on strike.On May 5, 1970, the day after the Kent State massacre, Dave worked with his students at Julia Richman High School to organize a strike against war and repression. They specifically demanded the freedom of Bobby Seale, Ericka Huggins and other imprisoned members of the Black Panther Party. By the end of the week, the entire city school system was shut down. On May 14, Dave was fired for “conduct unbecoming a teacher.”YAWF was the first anti-war group to organize marches and teach-ins in solidarity with the people of Palestine. Dave, whose family background was Jewish, was passionate about that cause. Our Palestine events were routinely attacked by anti-Arab hate groups armed with lead pipes and gas bombs, and Dave always served on security.A steadfast revolutionaryMany activists of the 1960s dropped out of political life in the less turbulent 1970s. Dave did not. He remained a steadfast revolutionary and WWP member. He focused on getting Workers World newspaper and our literature, our ideas and program into the hands and minds of our class.He staffed literature tables and worked on national distribution, taking the paper shipments every week to Greyhound. He sold Workers World newspaper on the trains and took part in our massive postering campaigns. And he prepared the labels every week for the WW paper mailing.After being fired by the Board of Education, Dave worked 10 years for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and was vice president of the DEP chapter of Local 375 ­Civil Service Technical Guild. He left that job to become a computer programmer.Dave was a worker. He was battered by this vile capitalist system. He was laid off several times and had to travel to find work. He had no medical coverage in 2006, when he suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed.For the past seven years, Dave lived in nursing homes. But he was able to come to activities with the help of a wheelchair and the support of his daughter, his health aides and his comrades in Workers World Party. He was a member of the Party’s People with Disabilities Caucus. He loved movies and going to Central Park when the weather was nice.Dave is survived and will always be lovingly remembered by his family and by the Party he helped build.A public memorial was held Feb. 22 in New York City for Dave Schechter, who died on Jan. 13.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

French foreign minister asked to raise press freedom during visit

first_img Receive email alerts December 17, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders wrote to French foreign minister Michel Barnier today reminding him of the extremely grave press freedom violations in Libya and asking him to raise them with Libyan government representatives during an official visit to Tripoli on 5-6 October.”Press freedom is still virtually non-existent in Libya despite the regime’s efforts to acquire a new, improved image as regards human rights,” the organisation said. “The print and broadcast media have been under the regime’s tutelage for years, no criticism of the president is tolerated and all journalists practice self-censorship. If foreign reporters manage to get one of the few press visas to go there, they are closely monitored.”Reporters Without Borders said the Libyan regime holds the record for the longest imprisonment of a journalist – Abdullah Ali al-Sanussi al-Darrat, who has been detained without trial since 1973. His place of detention and state of health are unknown. Barnier should ask what has happened to Al-Darrat as well as raise all the other press freedom issues, the organisation said. to go further Organisation LibyaMiddle East – North Africa News News February 23, 2021 Find out more On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Libya October 1, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 French foreign minister asked to raise press freedom during visit Six imprisoned journalists to finally appear in court in Istanbul June 24, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en Well-known Libyan journalist missing since his arrestlast_img read more

The months in custody really took their toll. I am physically weakened. But I want to quickly find people of goodwill ready to provide financial backing to my newspaper that will allow it to appear again. We have a duty to pick up the struggle again for our readers. They are there, waiting for us. Moreover, I want to thank them for their support, together with everyone who fought for me during these months of incarceration. However, I am worried for my contributors. Since my release, they have been receiving anonymous calls, telling them to break their contract with my newspaper. They are really frightened. These threats have a history. During my imprisonment, they had to write under pseudonyms for fear of reprisals on the part of the Cameroon authorities”. Reporters Without Borders congratulates Lewis Medjo’s entire editorial team, who are standing by him despite the threats. “We cannot morally break the contracts we have with Lewis and we want to go on fighting alongside him”, Jean François Mvogo, a journalist on La Détente Libre told Reporters Without Borders.Medjo who was taken into temporary custody on 22 September 2008 for “dissemination of false news” was sentenced to three years in prison on 7 January 2009.

Shannon plan sparks airport strike vote

first_imgNewsLocal NewsShannon plan sparks airport strike voteBy admin – December 6, 2012 510 WORKERS at Shannon airport have mandated their union to ballot for industrial action on foot of the announcement that the airport is to be separated from the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) on December 31. And there were warnings this week that the union cannot guarantee their dispute will not hit Christmas travel arrangements. SIPTU wants staff at the airport to remain as employees of the DAA to protect their existing terms and conditions of employment.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There was widespread disquiet at a meeting of airport staff held within an hour of Transport Minister, Leo Varadkar’s announcement of the new Shannon strategy in Dublin on Monday afternoon.SIPTU official, Tony Carroll told the Limerick Post that the workers want to ring-fence the agreements under which they work. Balloting on the issue of industrial action was due to start by this Friday, he confirmed.“There has been nothing  about what will happen to the staff. We are writing to the Minister, asking him to keep staff with the DAA and second them to Shannon. There is precedent for this. Aer Rianta staff were seconded to work in Bunratty when Aer Rianta was in charge there and Department of Transport staff have been seconded to work for Aer Rianta. If that happens, then staff pay and conditions are protected. As it is, nobody can say what’s going to happen at the end of the month”, Mr. Carroll said.Shannon staff received a letter from the DAA last Friday telling them that it was possible that they would no longer be employed by the DAA by December 31.“People are quite disturbed at not having been consulted in all of this. We can’t rule out action of the ‘blue flu’ sort if we don’t get assurances about pay and conditions”.Meanwhile. Knock airport has warned of possible legal action against the government over claims that it is giving Shannon an unfair commercial advantage over other regional airports by writing off its €100 million debt.Reacting to the decision Liam Scollan, Chairman of Ireland West Airport Knock, said that the decision to intervene so generously in one airport while ignoring other airports amounted to an unfair, wasteful and possibly illegal use of scarce resources, which would not serve the interests of national aviation.The commercial advantage given to Shannon could trigger “the terminal decline of an efficient, growing airport like Knock, which has begun to compete successfully with the State owned Shannon at a fraction of the cost.  It was also a financially disastrous policy for hard pressed taxpayers”, Mr Scollan concluded.

Calls for actual cost of water charges to be made known

first_imgLinkedin WITH An Taoiseach estimating downwards the projected annual average cost of water charges for a family of four to €250, counter claims of what the real cost will be estimates families paying considerably more than that and Government opposition are calling for a full disclosure immediately. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Fianna Fáil Local election candidate for Cappamore-Kilmallock, Cllr Mike Donegan, says the Government must stop playing games over water charges and finally inform families in Limerick how much they will have to pay for their water next year.Cllr Donegan was speaking as claim and counter-claim by Fine Gael and Labour representatives last week left many families angered about the lack of any clear information on how much they will be expected to pay for Water Charges in January.“The behaviour of Fine Gael and Labour representatives over the past week was been nothing short of appalling. People are not stupid; they know full well the Government is delaying telling people just how much they will pay in water charges until after May’s local elections.“This is despite the Taoiseach stating on numerous occasions that the information was only weeks away. People I am meeting on the doorstep every day are frightened by the continuing stream of misinformation they are getting from Fine Gael and Labour. Families have no idea what kind of ‘free allowance’ they will receive and if the elderly or those with illnesses will be entitled to extra allowances.“How are people supposed to support the introduction of water charges when they were hoodwinked into paying the Local Property Tax? The Government promised that 80% of money collected from the Local Property Tax would go back into local communities; instead €500 million of the money collected was put towards Irish Water. Not one cent of that money has been put into fixing pipes and leaks but 40% of our water is lost through leaking pipes.“Why should families in the Cappamore and Kilmallock area pay water charges when so much of all domestic water is leaking into the ground? Why should families pay water charges when there will be no consideration given to ability to pay? Why should families pay water charges when millions of taxpayers’ money has been spent on consultants’ reports instead of going to local amenities and services.“The silence of the Government representatives in Limerick has been deafening. How can they stand by and watch the Irish people be forced into paying water charges when they made such a mess of the Local Property Tax money. “The Government has no credibility on this; it needs to put politics aside and start being up front with households in Limerick and tell us just how much we are expected to pay in water charges come January.” Print #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy NewsLocal NewsPoliticsCalls for actual cost of water charges to be made knownBy Staff Reporter – April 21, 2014 577 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday Twitter Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick WhatsAppcenter_img Email Previous articleGarda warning over anti social behaviourNext articleHands off our LEADER companies warns Collins Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Advertisement Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch TAGSMusic LimerickWater Charges New Music: 40Hurtzlast_img read more

The Home Equity Problem for Generation X

first_img Baby Boomers Generation X Home Equity Millennials 2017-07-18 Joey Pizzolato Related Articles The Home Equity Problem for Generation X Tagged with: Baby Boomers Generation X Home Equity Millennials Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago There is a disparity with home equity between Gen Xers and millennials, according to a recent report released by Zillow—which says that millennials and Gen Xers have similar median loan to value ratios on their mortgage.And the reason for this similarity, they say? The timing each generation got into the housing market in relation to the housing bust in the mid 2000s. Many Gen Xers were just beginning to purchase their homes in the years or months preceding the housing crash, which means they were hit the hardest when prices plummeted. Zillow estimates that homes lost 22.9 percent of their value on average between April 2007 and December 2011. Other generations that had been in the housing market for longer, like the Baby Boomers and the Silent generation, had built up enough equity in their home to sustain the crash.Most millennials (64.2 percent) have entered the housing market in the past five years, which means they weren’t around when the market crashed, and subsequently entered as home prices were rising. If Gen Xers bought their house before the crash, and lost a good percentage of their equity, they would be just getting back to their original prices as millennials entered.Certain metros were hit harder than others in the crash.
