first_imgThursday Sep 20, 2018 Danny Cipriani excluded from England training squad despite sensational form Gloucester number ten Danny Cipriani has not been named in Eddie Jones’ 36-man England squad that will assemble in Bristol for a training camp ahead of the autumn internationals. Chris Ashton and Manu Tuilagi were included, but Cipriani has been viewed as surplus to requirements.ADVERTISEMENTTuilagi, after scoring a sensational try for Leicester Tigers, is in the squad for the first time since playing for England in the 2016 Six Nations.Ashton, who moved to England’s Sale Sharks from France, has also been included having last played Test rugby in 2014, while uncapped wingers Nathan Earle of Harlequins and Joe Cokanasiga of Bath have also been called up.South Africans Michael Rhodes of Saracens and Nick Schonert of Worcester Warriors make up the other two uncapped players in the squad.CIPRIANIWhile in form Cipriani the most high profile exclusion from the squad, Jones has stated that they only wanted to work with two number tens.In his view, the Gloucester playmaker is not one of them, instead favouring George Ford and Owen Farrell.ADVERTISEMENT“We just wanted two stand-offs in the squad because we want them to get a lot of training time. Danny is probably third or fourth choice right now,” he said.“He has some things to work on and he knows what they are. He’s disappointed but he understands.”THE JOHN MITCHELL FACTOREarlier this week, former New Zealand coach Mitchell was confirmed as England’s new defence coach until the end of the Rugby World Cup 2019. Scott Wisemantel will continue as attack coach for the Quilter Internationals.ADVERTISEMENT“The training camp in Bristol is our last opportunity to get the squad together before the Quilter Internationals so it is vital we put down some parameters, particularly with John Mitchell coming in as defence coach,” Jones said.“We’ll implement a slightly different defence philosophy building on the great work Paul Gustard has done to keep advancing our defence. It’s a great opportunity for the players to work with John and for the team to keep evolving.”The final England squad will be named on 18 October.ENGLAND FIXTURES3 November 2018 vs South Africa10 November 2018 vs New Zealand17 November 2018 vs Japan24 Novemver 2018 vs AustraliaTRAINING SQUADForwards: (20) Tom Curry, Jamie George, Dylan Hartley, Nathan Hughes, Nick Isiekwe, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Joe Marler, Zach Mercer, Michael Rhodes, Chris Robshaw, Nick Schonert, Brad Shields, Kyle Sinckler, Billy Vunipola, Mako Vunipola, Harry Williams, Mark Wilson.Backs: (16) Chris Ashton, Mike Brown, Danny Care, Joe Cokanasiga, Elliot Daly, Nathan Earle, Owen Farrell, George Ford, Alex Lozowski, Jonny May, Jack Nowell, Dan Robson, Henry Slade, Ben Te’o, Manu Tuilagi, Ben Youngs.<span style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” data-mce-type=”bookmark” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

first_imgSave this picture!© João MorgadoAfter the process of identifying the site and acquiring the land, the development of the project became a natural process where the pretensions and memories began to give meaning to the drawing. From then on, the drawing started to gain a consistent form. This form has become the concept of this project with which I tried to be, throughout its development, the most coherent possible, trying not to distort from the principle. The pergola assumes the same design, as an extension from the house.Save this picture!© João MorgadoSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© João MorgadoThe project was developed based on the modular composition principle, creating a proper rhythm in the façades and roofing. The constructive method adopted consists in the use of prefabricated black concrete panels, with a regular dimension, that defines the stereotomy of the project, since it is composed of repeated modules arranged sequentially. The use of black concrete as a material aims for a smooth integration in harmony with the landscape, as well as reduce maintenance costs.Save this picture!© João MorgadoIn formal terms, the house results in a simple and perfectly regular volume, almost monolithic, that lands on the ground, in the longitudinal direction of its inclination, in an intermediate point overlooking the street.Save this picture!© João MorgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessLouvre Abu Dhabi / Ateliers Jean NouvelSelected ProjectsShidao Resort / Duoxiang StudioSelected Projects Share Photographs Houses “COPY” House in Ourém / Filipe Saraiva Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  João MorgadoCollaborators:Andreia Correia, Agnieszka MarquesSpecialists:Rui Santos, Equação DuplaContractor:Vigobloco3 D Image:Sintonia MétricaModel:Filipe SaraivaSpecialists:{“id”=>”609169f2db42e10018cdf40a”, “name”=>{“es”=>”Andreia Correia”, “pt”=>”Andreia Correia”, “cn”=>”Andreia Correia”, “en”=>”Andreia Correia”}, “email”=>nil, “entity”=>”Person”, “type_name”=>”Collaborators”, “automatically_created”=>true}, {“id”=>”609169f6db42e10018cdf40c”, “name”=>{“es”=>”Agnieszka Marques”, “pt”=>”Agnieszka Marques”, “cn”=>”Agnieszka Marques”, “en”=>”Agnieszka Marques”}, “email”=>nil, “entity”=>”Person”, “type_name”=>”Collaborators”, “automatically_created”=>true}, {“id”=>”6091ebebdb42e10018ce1dde”, “name”=>{“es”=>”Filipe Saraiva”, “pt”=>”Filipe Saraiva”, “cn”=>”Filipe Saraiva”, “en”=>”Filipe Saraiva”}, “email”=>nil, “entity”=>”Person”, “type_name”=>”Model”, “automatically_created”=>true}, {“id”=>”60916192db42e10018cdf010”, “name”=>{“es”=>”Rui Santos”, “pt”=>”Rui Santos”, “cn”=>”Rui Santos”, “en”=>”Rui Santos”}, “email”=>nil, “entity”=>”Person”, “type_name”=>”Specialists”, “automatically_created”=>true}, {“id”=>”609294cbdb42e10018ce718a”, “name”=>{“es”=>”Equação Dupla”, “pt”=>”Equação Dupla”, “cn”=>”Equação Dupla”, “en”=>”Equação Dupla”}, “email”=>nil, “entity”=>”Person”, “type_name”=>”Specialists”, “automatically_created”=>true}City:OurémCountry:PortugalMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© João MorgadoRecommended ProductsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40WindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoDoorsC.R.

The house is located on a piece of land in Ourém, characterized by its rectangular configuration, with a descending slope in the south direction (next to the public road). The difference in height between the highest point and the lowest point is approximately 4.50m. It is a farmland with a natural landscape, facing south and overlooking the Castle of Ourém.Save this picture!© João MorgadoWhen we ask a child, anywhere in the world to draw a house, all of them invariably present us with a simplistic representation consisting of five lines, a rectangle and two squares. The pentagon composed by five lines represents the walls and the roof. The rectangle is meant to represent the door and the squares, the windows.Save this picture!© João MorgadoRegardless of the culture, the architectural references of each place, or the most common concept of accommodation from that place, it shows that all the houses have characteristics that are transversal to each one of us, because we all feel that the house is like a shelter that protects us from the world that surrounds us. It is our safe haven and our own world.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThis archetype is usually defined by a polygon of regular geometric shape, generally well proportioned and with balanced dimensions, with which we all identify. The project consists of a house of me, for me and my family and intends to meet our functional needs, but also to satisfy a range of architectural requirements that are part of my formal and spatial imaginary, resulting from my individual and family experience.

Additions and alterations to a small Victorian terrace in Noone Street, Clifton Hill.Sitting at the end of a row of similar late 19th century terraces, the site for this project was fortunate enough to sit on block that had double-width proportions to the back due to a small electrical substation next door. This opened up a number of opportunities in terms of how we approached the brief which was for a new simple, modern, light-filled living, meals and kitchen area, along with master bedroom and studio.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenBeing a heritage dwelling which had had many ad-hoc renovations over the years, it was decided very early that all of the additions were to be stripped back, with the original front 2 bedrooms the only retained aspect of the house.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenThe width of the block once past the original part of the dwelling expands rapidly, and it was the ideal configuration to create a large, north facing courtyard in this area with both the dining and living space connected directly. The dining area which sits adjacent the courtyard also acts as the “gallery” of sorts with a number of original paintings by the client sitting bathed in the natural light from the nearby courtyard, and series of skylights above.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenThe living room is wrapped either side with full height 3.0m double glazed timber sliders which look both northwards to the new courtyard and south to the rear garden which is served by a large lawn area and native trees.Save this picture!Ground floor planField Office Architecture also provided the landscape design for the project, which included the courtyard which is perimeter lined with seat-height recycled brick planters, and a singular Japanese maple tree which provides an elegant focal point, visible from kitchen, meals, living, and the rooms upstairs.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenLevel 1 houses the master bedroom and walk-in robe, along with studio for the client, who, as previously mentioned is a passionate artist. The controlled north facing light to these rooms was critical for the owner and his work, as was the juliette balcony to the bedroom which can be left fully open during hot nights, and allows them to lie in bed and see the morning light trickle past the trees and rooftops.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenA combination of dark feature timber framing along with marine grade ply and rendered recycled brickwork make up the primary material palette externally, a simple, affordable and yet robust series of selections that juxtapose elegantly against the heritage nature of the existing part of the dwelling.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenInternally, the selections were similarly made to provide a soft understatedness that allows for the artwork and the natural light to take centre stage. That’s why materials such as the matt polished concrete along with soft white tiles are broken up only in small part by the dark timber veneer of the kitchen or the black feature lighting and fixtures. Brushed steel tapware throughout are included for quality and tactility rather than any punctuation of the space.Save this picture!© Kristoffer PaulsenThe dwelling is well insulated with a tight building fabric and double glazing throughout. AC has been avoided as much as possible, and placement of windows throughout means that all living spaces and the master bedroom can have significant cross flow ventilation when required for night time purging. Full height recessed insect screens to the sliders means that the users of the house can continue this throughout all times of the day. In slab hydronic heating services the living and dining spaces, additional panels are located throughout the rest of the dwelling.Project gallerySee allShow lessTransparent Townhome / Black Pencils StudioSelected ProjectsTRIPTYCH / YH2 ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Kristoffer Paulsen Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily CopyHouses, Renovation•Melbourne, Australia “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

first_img11. Remind your supporters that you are a charitySome organisations such as arts and culture organisations don’t always promote their charitable status. They are an arts organisation first, and charity second.Arts Council England’s Director of Philanthropy Clare Titley is encouraging arts organisations to use Giving Tuesday as an opportunity to remind supporters and audience members of their charitable status, and all the methods of giving that are open to them.She blogged on ACE’s site:“If you work for an arts or culture organisation, it’s an opportunity to tell your story. To get the word out about how much your work benefits the everyone in your community“I would love to see more arts organisations and museums using the day to shout about the work they are doing and to encourage people to support them. It feels like a brilliant chance to increase awareness of these organisations as charities, and to let people know how they can play a part in the wonderful work they do”. All three recipes created for Farm Africa’s #GivingTuesday appeal feature ingredients that will be grown in the schools’ gardens:– Successful chef, restaurateur and caterer Kevin McFadden has created a tasty African Meatballs recipe.– Food writer and chef Rosie Sykes has devised a delicious Vegetble Gratin with Spicy Tomatoes.– Cabrito Goat Meat supplier and former River Cottage chef James Whetlor a flavoursome African-inspired Kid Shank dish.

Here is a round-up of some of the many activities taking place.First, a humorous and wishful idea of what Giving Tuesday could be like. We already know from CAF research that 35% of Britons say that they will give t charity on Giving Tuesday. But imagine if the excitement around the day was the same as for Black Friday. Can you picture people sleeping out at night to queue to make their donations?Here’s what that might look like: AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Listening to donors is an exercise that repays again and again. So here is another chance: Tagged with: Giving Tuesday matched giving Virgin Money Giving Fiona Magor, Rethink Mental Illness Individual Giving and Events Manager said:“We are calling on all those for or against this Christmas season, to make a £3 SMS donation and discover their ‘mental elf’ by sending a text with either the word ‘JINGLE’ OR ‘HUMBUG’ to 70300.“We will be tallying the messages we receive to see how our supporters are feeling about the festiveness – pretty right-on tinselly or sick to the egg-noggy core of carols, decorations and all things jingly”.The charity will also be selling its 2016 Colouring-in Calendar, drawing on the interest in adult colouring as a support for mental wellbeing.

Virgin Money Giving and matched donations from PayPalOnline giving platform Virgin Money Giving is teaming up with Giving Tuesday UK and PayPal to encourage people to donate to charity on Giving Tuesday.If donors use PayPal when making a donation on Virgin Money Giving on the day of #GivingTuesday, 1st December, PayPal will match 1% of all donations received, and Virgin Money Giving will pass this directly on to charities.Indeed, PayPal is aiming to set a new Guinness World Record for the most money donated online for charity in 24 hours with a global 1% match on all donations.Here is Virgin Money Giving encouraging charitable giving as a form of detoxing from Black Friday: 7. Encourage online givingBased on last year’s experience plenty of people are likely to be donating online, so encourage your supporters to do so. In 2014 JustGiving reported a 45% increase in donations compared to previous years, and Blackbaud reported that donations in the UK went up by 270% compared to the previous year, and were up 43% on any other Tuesday in the year.

KOR will offer advice, assist with fundraising campaigns and raise awareness of the charity amongst potential supporters. 8. CAF matching gifts for new accountsYou will have noticed that matched giving is a hallmark of Giving Tuesday. Charities Aid Foundation is joining in by matching up to £120 donations for those who open a CAF Charity Account on 1 December. Expect quite a few #unselfie posts too. These arose a couple of years ago on Giving Tuesday.Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday! Share an UNselfie &let us know why you’re #GivingforParkinsons— Parkinson’s UK (@ParkinsonsUK) November 30, 2015 9. 1,400 partnersThis year there are 1,400 organisations involved including many major corporates.For example, supermarket Morrisons is raising funds for their charity partner Sue Ryder with a national bag pack, staff Christmas dress and any pensioner dropping into a Morrisons café between 2.30 and 5pm will get a free mince pie and drink.In addition Morrisons stores will sell a range of virtual gifts. Customers looking for a stocking filler can donate £5 towards Sue Ryder’s community nurses or family bereavement support and receive a fridge magnet to pass onto their loved one or keep for themselves. The gifts, costing £5, will be on sale at every checkout and “could raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for Sue Ryder”. Howard Lake | 1 December 2015 | News 13.

All the journalists who cannot go to work have our support, and our thoughts go out to the people of Mali, who have been deprived of so many sources of information.”Soldiers overran ORTM at around 4 p.m. yesterday, firing into the air inside the complex and forcing all the personnel to leave. At around 4 a.m. today, they broadcast a communiqué announcing a curfew and the dissolution of state institutions. This communiqué has been broadcast repeatedly on state radio and TV ever since.你需要安装能够查看此内容的 Adobe Flash Player。Please click here to continue.Broadcasting by all the privately-owned radio stations in Bamako was suspended yesterday.

It is a problem within the military. Some soldiers are driving around the city firing in the air. No one knows what to believe. President Touré has not said anything.”The only reaction from the president has been to post a Tweet last night saying: “There has been no coup d’état in Mali. It is just a mutiny.”The mutineering soldiers have criticized the lack of resources available to the armed forces to combat the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA) and other Tuareg and Islamist rebel groups in the north of the country that have been staging armed actions for several months.A presidential election was due to be held on 29 April.Photo : Military men in streets of Bamako (Habibou Kouyate / AFP) News Follow the news on Mali RSF_en Newslast_img read more

first_img News March 11, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Turkmenistan News Organisation Coronavirus off limits in Turkmenistan The Turkmen government has curbed the very recent Internet growth and continues to practice widespread censorship. Its monopolistic takeover of the cell telephone market has allowed it to enhance its control over communications. The international community seems more determined to make concessions than to exert any real pressure on this country, in view of its vast energy and strategic potential. Prohibitive costs of Internet accessAlthough President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow finally allowed Turkmen to access the Web in 2008, many technical and financial barriers still remain. Internet access is possible, but its generalised use is not encouraged.Apart from the few businesses and foreign embassies which can access the Worldwide Web, the few other Internet users can only access an ultra-censored version of the Internet nicknamed “the Turkmenet.” Very strict filtering is focusing on opposition Turkmen-language publications, targeting primarily local users and potential dissidents, mainly for linguistic reasons. Opposition websites such as and Gundogar, and regional news sites covering Central Asia such as and eurasianet, are blocked. YouTube and LiveJournal were rendered inaccessible late in 2009 to prevent Turkmen from blogging or sending videos abroad. Facebook and Twitter are also blocked.However, Turkmen can view most generalist NGO websites. The same applies to Russian and Turkmen media websites that contain no articles critical of Turkmenistan, because of the significant commercial ties between the two countries.In view of the climate of terror prevailing in the country, Turkmen netizens do not discuss political or societal subjects online. They consult their email boxes and exchange messages with their friends via Skype or cell phone instant messaging services. A few Turkmen social networks were created about two years ago. The forum and the blog platform are highly popular among the country’s netizens and the diaspora. They receive hundreds of visitors every day.One notable improvement is the fact that Turkmen citizens are now allowed to have personal computers, even if the latter’s purchase price automatically puts them out of reach for all but the elite. The setting up of WiFi connections affords users more flexibility and allows them to avoid having to communicate their personal information, as they need to do when ordering a subscription or in a cybercafé. The authorities keep these establishments under very close surveillance. On the other hand, netizens no longer have to tell the manager which websites they want to consult, as was previously the case.Most Turkmen connect from cybercafés, since the regime imposes prohibitive rates for Internet access. An unlimited monthly Internet subscription at a speed of 64 Kbit/sec costs $213.16. The cost for ADSL is almost $7,000, even though the average monthly salary is about $200! For those who choose unlimited access, the cost will be $25 for 1 MB. Bandwidth speed is often very slow. Some users who have private connections complain that they can only use the Internet a short time during the day. At night, the speed is somewhat faster. Some of them go to the offices of international organisations to get access to the World Wide Web.Cell phones under pressureIn December 2010, a shortage of cell phone SIM cards once again caused long waiting lines in Ashgabat, according to the Chronicles of Turkmenistan website, published by the NGO Turkmen Initiative of Human Rights. Long lines also formed in front of the Altyn Asyr brand shops. This “shortage” coincided with the departure from Turkmenistan of the Russian telecommunications company MTS, leaving some two million Mobile TeleSystem subscribers without access. The licence granted to MTS-Turkmenistan was suspended, effective on 21 December 2010, by the Ministry of Communications. The only competitor of the state-owned company and market leader Altyn Asyr was thus eliminated. Altyn Asyr, which until then only had a few hundred thousand subscribers, now enjoys a monopoly status, which assures the government an even stronger control of cell phones in terms of censorship and surveillance. Unlike MTS, Altyn Asyr blocks access to independent and opposition websites. A return to repression?On 30 September, President Berdimuhamedow gave a belligerent speech before National Security Ministry officials, calling on them to fight against those who “defame our secular and democratic law-based state and try to destroy the unity and solidarity of our society.” The website of the Turkmen Initiative for Human Rights (TIHR) was hacked in early October 2010 and had to change its host site. These attacks followed an interview which the NGO’s director, Farid Tukhbatullin, granted on 28 September 2010 to the satellite TV station K+. Broadcast in Central Asia, it was therefore accessible to the Turkmen population. Farid Tukhbatullin, who is exiled in Vienna, addressed the human rights situation in Turkmenistan. The authorities were apparently displeased with his comments.In the last few months, several dissidents have been forbidden to leave the country, including human rights activist Umida Dzhumabaeva, one of the most recent examples, in July 2010. The authorities reproach her for her activities and relations with other dissidents. She was accused, totally without proof, of having delivered information to opposition websites. Is the international community prepared to offer any concessions?Turkmenistan’s capital, Ashgabat, plays a key role in supporting NATO within the framework of the war in Afghanistan, mainly by authorising it to access Turkmen air space, which the U.S. views as a strategic asset. Despite this, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake, while visiting the country in February 2011, conveyed a warning to Central Asian countries which practice harsh censorship: “It is important for leaders of countries where the companies are controlled to listen to the lessons of Tunisia and Egypt.”This position contrasts with that of French diplomacy. According to a cable leaded by WikiLeaks and published in the newspaper Le Monde, “The French Embassy refrains from speaking out on the issues of religious freedom or human rights so as not to compromise (contracts with the Group) Bouygues,” which enjoys a privileged status in the country.As for the European Union, it is about to enter into a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) with Turkmenistan, which would include a monitoring clause concerning the human rights situation and calls for the country’s democratisation, under penalty of suspension. The European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee took a position in January 2011 in favour of signing this political and economic agreement.

first_img Reporters Without Borders has warned against the risk of abuse of an amendment to the Computer Misuse Act intended to tighten Internet security by allowing continuous surveillance of cyber-suspects and authorising their pre-emptive arrest before a crime has been committed. Singaporean website prosecuted over election coverage SingaporeAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF_en April 10, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has warned against the risk of abuse of an amendment to the Computer Misuse Act intended to tighten Internet security. Parliament has amended Article 15A of the Act allowing continuous surveillance of cyber-suspects thanks to real-time monitoring software and authorising their pre-emptive arrest before a crime has been committed. Cyber-criminals are liable for jail terms of up to three years.The Government says the new amendment will combat “imminent attacks” that could threaten security, essential services, defence or Singapore’s foreign relations. It says the law will not be used to oversee normal Internet use.Reporters Without Borders warned however of the risk of abuse: “Even if the fight against cyber-crime has become essential, it should not justify the granting of extraordinary powers to governments” said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders. “The amendment adopted by Singapore’s Parliament gives too much discretion to the minister of home affairs as to the scope of his authority. We urge therefore that these decisions should be checked by an independent body” he added. One Member of Parliament, Ho Geok Choo, said that the amended article made it more like the Internal Security Act (ISA), designed to counter ordinary crime. This law adopted soon after the city state‚s independence has long been used by the government to make arbitrary arrests of political dissidents. Parliamentarians also condemned a lack of clarity in the terms of the Act. Chee Soon Juan, secretary general of the Singapore Democratic Party said the law could be used to arrest and imprison anyone suspected of being a cyber-criminal. He added that he believed the Government was using this law as a pretext to monitor Internet use. The Act does not say what type of agency or organisation could be authorised by the minister of home affairs to supervise the Internet. Nor does it explain what steps could be taken by the minister when he judges an attack to be “imminent”. The law also makes no provision for any external body to verify the basis on which decisions are taken. Reporters Without Borders condemned similar laws adopted in the United States and in the countries of the EU after the attacks of 11 September 2001.
