Dan Biggar: How to kick to regain Expand Beauden Barrett: How to mix your kicks LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Wales fly-half explains how to test defences… Boot boy: Owen Farrell hard at work in training. He is England’s second-highest point-scorer (Getty) “If you make it about where your body’s going then the follow-through takes care of itself. The hardest part of the punt kick is to hit low. If I hit high to the target I’ll probably lean back more. Whereas if I hit low, it makes the body go through the ball and past the target. So in practice, hit low and you’ll get through the ball a lot further.”MORE SKILLS ADVICE… All Blacks fly-half Beauden Barrett, the World Rugby… Expand Every month Rugby World features advice from professional players and coaches on specific skills.

Beauden Barrett: How to mix your kicks The Saracens and England talisman explains the ground rules for punting the ball The former England fly-half explains the key elements… Collapse Owen Farrell: How to kick out of hand Owen Farrell is renowned for the accuracy of his goalkicking, whether for Saracens, England or the Lions. But putting boot to ball in open play is another part of his considerable skill-set. Here the fly-half/inside-centre talks through kicking out of hand…Follow your instincts“You need your hands around the ball to be able to do anything with it – to pass it, kick it, run with it, anything. Usually you don’t have a preconceived idea that you’re going to kick the ball straightaway; sometimes you just drop it onto your foot.“I find kicking quite instinctive, and you get a lot of feedback from the feel of it.”Point to target“When punting, obviously you point the ball in the direction that you want it to go. Then you want to kick up through the ball, cutting through the middle of it.“The main thing is getting your bodyweight going through it – not just making it about the kick but about where your body’s going so that the ball will follow.”Find the right height Toby Flood: How to pass with precision Toby Flood: How to pass with precision Practise on both feet“I practise most days. A lot of punting can be done in warm-ups and kicking sessions. You just need one team-mate, then kick the ball to each other.“You’re aiming for contact through the bootlaces. And use both feet – I wouldn’t say I was the same off both sides but I’d be confident enough.”This article originally appeared in the February 2019 edition of Rugby World magazine.

A growing family refurbishes and extends their Victorian dwelling and coach house into a modern, light-filled family home. The budget demanded that a principle of practicality be applied to which period features to retain or modernise. One enters the house through the newly reinstated coach house doorway. By blocking the previous main door – now an external wood store – and with new sash windows, a clarity is brought to the previously confused street elevation. From the hallway, views through the existing house reveal the new airy open kitchen-dining space and the freshly landscaped garden beyond. By removing the wall dividing the dwelling and its adjoining coach house, the latter was amalgamated into the building’s main body, allowing for the reconfigured spaces to be as generous as the family requires. Towards the rear, large windows and roof-lights flood the heart of the house with natural light, with sliding-folding doors and a wide slot window in the kitchen further extending the internal spaces into the garden.Save this picture!© Salt productionsWhile being mostly finished to a modern style, existing features were retained where practical. Original floor boards were re-oiled and placed atop new under floor heating; at once efficiently adapting the house to modern standards, while establishing a dialogue with the building’s history. The extensive use of glass is continued into the upper floors with large picture windows bathing the bedrooms in light and framing views to the handsome garden. New roof-lights are designed to give maximum headroom in the loft, and internally, the frosted glass of the first floor ensuite allows daylight to penetrate further; indeed every bathroom benefits from some form of natural light. A new staircase leads to the luxurious master bedroom within a full width, zinc-clad dormer.Save this picture!© Salt productionsPerhaps the most remarkable aspect of this project was to create such attractive, generous, and light-filled spaces within a restricted budget. This was achievable thanks to a strong working relationship between the client and the design team; all working together to develop simple and elegant responses to a clear brief.Save this picture!© Salt productionsProject gallerySee allShow lessFrom Concrete to Paper: Tadao Ando’s Recent Works Displayed in New MonographArticles16 Ephemeral Installations Designed by Mexican ArchitectsArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/915797/the-coach-house-studio-30-architects Clipboard Houses Photographs CopyAbout this officeStudio 30 ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionUnited KingdomPublished on May 04, 2019Cite: “The Coach House / Studio 30 Architects” 04 May 2019.

Frederick DouglassThe following excerpts are from the powerful speech entitled “What to the slave is 4th of July,” made by Frederick Douglass, the great African-American abolitionist who escaped from slavery, at an independence day rally in Rochester, N.Y., July 5, 1852. In light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling dismantling Sections 4 and 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, Douglass’s powerful words still ring true today. Note: Douglass uses words like “manhood” and “men” to refer to all enslaved Africans in keeping with terminology used in his day.Fellow citizens, pardon me, allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us?Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions, then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation’s sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation’s jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs? I am not that man. In a case like that the dumb might eloquently speak and the “lame man leap as an hart.”But such is not the state of the case. I say it with a sad sense of the disparity between us. I am not included within the pale of this glorious anniversary! Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. The blessings in which you, this day, rejoice are not enjoyed in common. The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity, and independence bequeathed by your fathers is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought light and healing to you has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn. To drag a man in fetters into the grand illuminated temple of liberty, and call upon him to join you in joyous anthems, were inhuman mockery and sacrilegious irony. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me by asking me to speak today? If so, there is a parallel to your conduct. And let me warn that it is dangerous to copy the example of a nation whose crimes, towering up to heaven, were thrown down by the breath of the Almighty, burying that nation in irrevocable ruin! I can today take up the plaintive lament of a peeled and woe-smitten people.Fellow citizens, above your national, tumultuous joy, I hear the mournful wail of millions! Whose chains, heavy and grievous yesterday, are today rendered more intolerable by the jubilee shouts that reach them. If I do forget, if I do not faithfully remember those bleeding children of sorrow this day, “may my right hand cleave to the roof of my mouth”! To forget them, to pass lightly over their wrongs, and to chime in with the popular theme would be treason most scandalous and shocking, and would make me a reproach before God and the world.My subject, then fellow citizens, is American slavery. I shall see this day and its popular characteristics from the slave’s point of view. Standing there identified with the American bondman, making his wrongs mine. I do not hesitate to declare with all my soul that the character and conduct of this nation never looked blacker to me than on this Fourth of July!Whether we turn to the declarations of the past or to the professions of the present, the conduct of the nation seems equally hideous and revolting. America is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future. Standing with God and the crushed and bleeding slave on this occasion, I will, in the name of humanity which is outraged, in the name of liberty which is fettered, in the name of the Constitution and the Bible which are disregarded and trampled upon, dare to call in question and to denounce, with all the emphasis I can command, everything that serves to perpetuate slavery — the great sin and shame of America! I will not equivocate, I will not excuse; I will use the severest language I can command; and yet not one word shall escape me that any man, whose judgment is not blinded by prejudice, shall not confess to be right and just.For the present, it is enough to affirm the equal manhood of the Negro race. Is it not as astonishing that, while we are plowing, planting, and reaping, using all kinds of mechanical tools, erecting houses, constructing bridges, building ships, working in metals of brass, iron, copper, and secretaries, having among us lawyers, doctors, ministers, poets, authors, editors, orators, and teachers; and that, while we are engaged in all manner of enterprises common to other men, digging gold in California, capturing the whale in the Pacific, feeding sheep and cattle on the hillside, living, moving, acting, thinking, planning, living in families as husbands, wives, and children, and above all, confessing and worshiping the Christian’s God, and looking hopefully for life and immortality beyond the grave, we are called upon to prove that we are men!What, am I to argue that it is wrong to make men brutes, to rob them of their liberty, to work them without wages, to keep them ignorant of their relations to their fellow men, to beat them with sticks, to flay their flesh with the lash, to load their limbs with irons, to hunt them with dogs, to sell them at auction, to sunder their families, to knock out their teeth, to burn their flesh, to starve them into obedience and submission to their masters? Must I argue that a system thus marked with blood, and stained with pollution, is wrong? No! I will not. I have better employment for my time and strength than such arguments would imply.What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy; a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States at this very hour.Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms — of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Should Win: “Three Billboards”. This film has the best cast of the year with Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell and even the wonderful Peter Dinklage. This cast all tells a heartbreaking story and they all did it beautifully.Will Win: “Three Billboards”. I think this movie will continue to grow momentum into the Oscars by winning but look for “Get Out” to maybe pull it out in the recent political times we are in. Should Win: Peter Dinklage. Season after season Peter Dinklage continues to amaze people on his acting ability. This last season is no different as he gave another great performance as Tyrion Lannister.Will Win: Sterling K. Brown. The show “This is Us” has been winning plenty of awards and after winning an Emmy for his role in the show it seems like the clear choice to win the SAG award as well.

She also just won the Golden Globe so look for her to continue her momentum into the Oscars.Will Win: Frances McDorman. Should Win: “Stranger Things”. This show is amazing! It has a fantastic cast and great writing. Season two is just as great as the first and is deserving of this award.Will Win: “The Handmaid’s Tale”. I don’t think there was ever a chance for any other show to win this award. This show has been climbing high and will continue to do so with anotherwin.The SAG awards will take place at 7 p.m. Sunday on TBS. Should Win: James Franco. His performance in “The Disaster Artist” was hilarious and just down right amazing. But with the recent sexual misconduct allegations he will most likely not be getting the award even after his win and the Golden Globes.Will Win: Gary Oldman. After winning a Golden Globe and all the talk about his performance, Gary Oldman is the clear choice to win this award for his performance of Winston Churchill.

Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists September 3, 2018 – Updated on September 7, 2018 China: RSF denounces the exclusion of a Japanese journalist from diplomatic meeting Help by sharing this information A reporter, sent to Beijing by Japanese conservative daily newspaper Sankei Shimbun on August 29th to cover the meeting between the Foreign Ministries of China and Japan, was suddenly declared persona non grata without given a precise reason at the request expressed by Chinese Minister Wang Yi. The reporter’s name was not disclosed. In response, other Japanese journalists who came to cover the meeting boycotted the event.”This arbitrary decision once again demonstrates how little Beijing is doing about press freedom,” said Cédric Alviani, Director of the RSF East Asia Office. “This sidelining appears even more absurd as the journalist was accredited to follow the delegation and that the Chinese authorities had granted him a visa.”In its annual report published in February, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China (FCCC) described the authorities’ growing relentlessness in preventing the foreign press from doing its job. In 2017, two photojournalists from the South Korean delegation were beaten by plainclothes agents while covering President Moon’s official visit to Beijing.Last week, the head correspondent of Buzzfeed News in China saw her visa renewal refused, as did a Swedish journalist in 2016, a correspondent of French magazine L’Obs in 2015, and a New York Times reporter in 2013.China ranks 176th out of 180 countries in the 2018 RSF World Press Freedom Index and has more than 50 imprisoned journalists.
