Glasgow Warriors aiming for Pro12 zenith

first_imgLLANELLI, WALES – FEBRUARY 03: Scarlets players celebrate after Nic Reynolds scored a try during the LV= Cup match between Scarlets and Leicester Tigers at Parc y Scarlets on February 3, 2013 in Llanelli, Wales. (Photo by Harry Engels/Getty Images) Ending the regular season as number one will be a sweet boon for Glasgow and indeed Scottish rugby as a whole. No longer is a Scottish side robbing results all the way into the playoffs.Now they need to secure a route to the final. After that, who knows? Maybe they can slip the Pro12 trophy down their trousers. TAGS: Glasgow Warriors LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img However, Townsend must be credited with the successes.In the years before, Townsend would readily stand in front of a recording device and tell all of all the studies he had read, all the rugby theory he had ingested. He was afforded minutes to waste talking of the trips he had taken to the southern hemisphere to analyse coaching techniques and how to handle cones and bibs differently than the northern hemisphere manuals suggested.Affording Townsend this suited press folk. They knew it was all gold, because the next day invective would flow and the same pages Townsend was on telling of his rugby brain would be spattered with vitriol as fans wailed about Scotland’s dire attack.Townsend stuck with it, though. Like the pub comic waiting for his chance to play the SECC, Toony took the jibes and closed his eyes and hoped.It is working, though. His self-belief was never in question, but now more and more are believing too. He has a tough job maintaining, but finishing at the top of the pile and having a home-semi would certainly earn him some of the respect around Europe that he craves.Plans of their own: Llanelli Scarlets are in the play-off huntThey cannot let up. Scarlets away and Ospreys at home represent two of the toughest fixtures in the league, with both Welsh regions scrapping with each other for a place in the playoffs. Glasgow also have to keep honest, with Ulster just a point behind and having a more straighforward run-in, the wing-clipped Dragons, Treviso and Connacht. Thumbs up: Glasgow Warriors and rapid full-back Stuart Hogg are flying in the RaboDirect Pro12 this seasonBy Alan DymockIT IS worth noting for a moment what Gregor Townsend is achieving at Glasgow Warriors.Considered somewhat of a superfluous appointment in the off-season, nipping into the front of a queue few had even thought would be forming behind  successful head coach Sean Lineen was Gregor Townsend.Mastermind: Gregor TownsendAt first it seemed he had been shoehorned into an outfit with a good playoff pedigree, but heading into the last three games of the RaboDirect Pro12 season things are progressing better than those fans would have expected. The outfit are at the top of the table and with confidence sky high and two-week break before facing the Scarlets, Ospreys and Connacht in the last three fixtures, it is expected that the side will consolidate their position and earn a home semi-final.If ever proof of their quality was needed, the Warriors obliged on Friday night with an obliteration of Munster. Six tries from six different players –including two first-half interception tries and a second-half lung-bursting interception from John Barclay – the team humiliated the likes of Doug Howlett, Ronan O’Gara and Paul O’Connell and sent a message to the rest of the league.Glasgow have evolved this season. The biting tackles are still there, but the defensive shape is more considered. The patterns more layered and nuanced.  The attack smart and, dare we say, effectively.Last season the Warriors played like shoplifters: snatching discounted victories when all they had looked like plumping for was defeat. Now Townsend reigns and the team play more like they are swapping price tags and shrewdly attaching different labels to items, rather than shoving them down their pants and trying not to act too suspicious.Granted, his weapons are more jaggy and likely to extract yelps from rivals than when Lineen was in charge. Sean Lamont still carries like a breeze block on wheels, Nikolo Matawalu has been one of the standout surprises of the season, DTH Van Der Merwe is actually fit and firing and Josh Strauss ducks his head, and in the darkness binds them.last_img read more

THE PROJECTOur top priority was to keep the spirit of the existing house, which was more than 20 years old and was designed in an exaggerated way. It had ample passages, oversized bathrooms and lacked many basic spaces for a beach house of its size. The project has an air of minimalism combined with classic elements of a rustic beach house that give a sense of harmony and peace to every environment.Save this picture!DOUBLE HEIGHTWe call the double height space “the soul of the house”. It recognizes the pre-existent structure and serves as an organizing element and spacial connector of all common areas.Save this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiREEDThe false ceiling cane plant generates a welcome shade throughout the day.

The Fonte Boa House is a single family house designed in a rural estate in Fartosa, Fonte Boa, in the centre of Portugal. The small estate, with a vineyard and olive grove, is located in the Rabaçal valley, confined by the Jerumelo, Sicó and Espinhal mountains.Save this picture!© José CamposThis expressive valley’s landscape, which was once occupied by a roman villa (around IV BC), is now mainly characterized by small plants and big olive trees.Save this picture!© José CamposThe house is located in the west side of the estate, protected from the main road, taking advantage of the best sun exposure, the surrounding trees and the views over the valley. The accurate position of the house was set so that there wouldn’t be major changes in the terrain, maintaining the existing slope and preserving all the existing trees.Save this picture!Exploded Perspective 1Reinterpreting the traditional single family housing typology, the house is a two storey rectangular volume with a zinc pitched roof, whose volume detaches itself from the slope with a concrete basement (occupied by a small wine cellar).Save this picture!© José CamposFrom the street, the entrance is made through an opening in the stonewall that limits the south part of the site. The open garage, built below the terrain level, is enclosed by concrete walls, by the semi-underground concrete box that hosts the laundry room, and by the stairs that lead to the upper level where the house is located.Save this picture!© José CamposA succession of platforms leads to the entrance of the house, which is protected by a windbreak door.

Iranians denied independent reporting ahead of parliamentary election

first_imgNews News IranMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesOnline freedomsMedia independence CorruptionImprisonedCitizen-journalists News RSF_en Journalists who have posted information about corrupt candidates on online social media have been summoned for questioning by the various intelligence agencies or have been threatened by the candidates’ supporters. At least 21 journalists have been interrogated in different parts of the country in the past six weeks, while Revolutionary Guards have searched the homes or offices of six of these journalists. The governmental media are openly orchestrating the regime’s propaganda while the authorities continue to censor and regulate all media outlets. The goals are clear – to promote the biggest possible turnout and a comeback for conservatives who support Supreme Guide Ali Khamenei. In response to the side-lining of moderates and critics, many leading figures who support the reformists or opposition are calling for a boycott of the elections. After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists February 19, 2020 Iranians denied independent reporting ahead of parliamentary election IranMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesOnline freedomsMedia independence CorruptionImprisonedCitizen-journalists The regime also continues to threaten and pressure Iranian and dual-national journalists who work for independent media outlets based abroad.

Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news.

Photo: Cian Reinhardt‘BIG Brother’ Style surveillance could be used to catch and prosecute dog-owners who let their canines poo and run.Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon (FF) wants the council drones already deployed over the city to focus on dog dropping offenders.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The government-funded drones have been deployed on counties where dumping is a major problem and can detect fly-tippers in the most remote locations.Limerick is one of 18 areas to use the drones to monitor illegal dumping, unauthorised development and to assist the emergency services.The city east councillor believes there could be even more bang for the government’s buck if the flying spies could also nab people who don’t pick up after their dogs.“It’s disgraceful and a terrible hazard to people in wheelchairs, children and people pushing buggies. I think it would be a great idea to use these drones to catch the dog owners who don’t clean up the mess”.The difficulties involved in finding and prosecuting offending dog owners has long been a bitter pill for the local authority to swallow.The drones can cover vast areas and can access places where it might be difficult or dangerous for council staff to go.The funding for the drones is provided by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.So far, the department has made €2.3 million available to councils across the country to try to combat illegal dumping in their areas.More than 5,000 tonnes of waste has been removed under projects funded by the initiative.

WhatsApp Twitter Facebook The Permian Basin Water in Energy Conference Advisory Board has gifted the University of Texas of the Permian Basin with a $10,000 scholarship, creating opportunities for more students to pursue their dream of higher education.The PBWIEC, which was co-sponsored by UT Permian Basin and the advisory board, featured experts from across the country representing all aspects of the oil and gas industry.The goal was to connect business leaders, policymakers, researchers and academic leaders to discuss best-practices and find solutions that support water usage in the energy industry, a news release from the university said. More than 450 people converged in Midland and Odessa to participate in this sold-out conference.“With the horizontal wells, each well uses a minimum of a million barrels of water. We’re in the middle of a desert. I don’t want us to stop the drilling activity, but we’ve got to recognize our usage, and try to identify ways to overcome that. And that concern was really the nucleus, the reason why we pulled this water conference together,” Jim Woodcock, a member of the PBWIEC Advisory Board said in the release.The second annual Permian Basin Water in Energy Conference is scheduled for Feb. 19 through Feb. 22, 2019, at the Horseshoe Complex in Midland.Sponsorships and discounted early registration will be available by July 31. Capacity for the conference has been increased to 700 attendees for 2019.More Information Pinterest Pinterest Fruit Salad to Die ForCreamy Fruit SaladUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakePowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Local NewsEducation PBWIEC awards scholarship to UTPB Facebook Registration set for engineering camp Noel earns award last_img read more

On Wednesday, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) released its Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) for October, reporting the first rebound after three consecutive months of reduced activity.The index, based on contract signings, rose 3.5 percent to 109.3 in October from 105.6 in September, making October the highest reading since June 2017.However, the index is still slightly below last year’s data by 0.6 percent. NAR’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun attributes this to the supply and affordability challenges the market experienced most of the year.“Although homebuilders are doing their best to ramp up production of single-family homes amidst ongoing labor and cost challenges, overall activity still drastically lags demand,” Yun said.Annually, existing inventory has decreased every month for 29 months straight, and the number of homes for sale at the end of October was the lowest for the month since 1991.“Until new home construction climbs even higher and more investors and homeowners put their home on the market, sales will continue to severely trail underlying demand,” Yun said.In October, pending sales were driven higher by the South, which experienced a rebound despite hurricane-related disruptions in September. Although, the bounce back wasn’t enough to impact the year-over-year decrease.“Last month’s solid increase in contract signings were still not enough to keep activity from declining on an annual basis for the sixth time in seven months,” Yun said. “Home shoppers had better luck finding a home to buy in October, but slim pickings and consistently fast price gains continue to frustrate and prevent too many would-be buyers from reaching the market.”Regionally, the PHSI in the South increased 7.4 percent to an index of 123.6 in October and is currently 2 percent higher than this time last year. In addition, the index in the West declined by 0.7 percent in October to 101.6 and is now 4.4 percent below 2016.Pending home sales in Northeast rose slightly by 0.5 percent to 95.0 in October but is 1.9 percent below a year ago. In the Midwest, the index increased 2.8 percent to 105.8 in October but remains 0.9 percent lower than last year.As 2017 comes to a close, NAR forecasts existing-home sales to finish at about 5.52 million—representing an increase of 1.3 percent from 2016 to 5.45 million. Meanwhile, the national median existing-home price for 2017 is predicted to increase by about 6 percent.To view the full report, click here.
