In the midfield he’s gone with what could be a lethal partnership, as he’s named Manu Tuilagi and Brian O’Driscoll, with the latter as squad captain.If you’re wondering about the scenery, Robinson was speaking from the HSBC Rugby Festival Doha.JASON ROBINSON’S 2013 BRITISH & IRISH LIONS STARTING XVBACKSFORWARDS15 Rob Kearney (Ireland)14 Leigh Halfpenny (Wales)13 Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland) ©12 Manu Tuilagi (England)11 George North (Wales)10 Jonathan Sexton (Ireland)9 Mike Phillips (Wales)1 Cian Healy (Ireland)2 Rory Best (Ireland)3 Adam Jones (Wales)4 Joe Launchbury (England)5 Alun-Wyn Jones (Wales)6 Sam Warburton (Wales)7 Justin Tipuric (Wales)8 Toby Faletau (Wales)As the tour approaches, what do you think of the team he has selected?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2013 Related Articles 235 WEEKS AGO Warren Gatland confirms British & Irish Lions… 399 WEEKS AGO Brian O’Driscoll’s incredible skill at training… 413 WEEKS AGO Montage of Amazing Lions Test series in Australia,… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

AimThe project was to build a 155 m2 house in a very limited time frame, and with a reduced budget. In response we decided to use an efficient construction system and a simplified palette of finishes.+ 38We designed a structure completely based on SIP panels (structural insulated panels), supported on a grid of foundations that intervene minimally in the existing terrain.Modulation and systemWe defined different three-dimensional modules, made up of floor, walls and roof panels. The modules were designed in two widths and two heights, which in their combination and association constitute the rooms of the house.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldMaterial optimizationThe dimensions used to configure the modules correspond to the manufacturing dimensions of the panels, maximizing the material and reducing losses during construction.ProgramThe intention was to minimize circulation surfaces, placing the common area at the center of the project, and the other rooms around it. This allowed us to concentrate the load bearing walls in the side aisles of the house, leaving the central common area without any structure.Save this picture!© Skyfilms Chile+ 38The program is developed in 4 parallel aisles formed by a sum of modules. Two aisles are composed of modules 244 cms wide, corresponding to the service program, and two aisles are made up of modules of 488 cms wide, corresponding to common rooms. We merged or alternated high and low modules in all aisles, achieving greater heights and therefore higher volumes of air in all the rooms of the house without necessarily increasing the surface (cubic meters vs square meters). The resulting roof, with alternating heights, generates light entries oriented to the north in most rooms. This basic principle is why we have called the house “SIP m3”. SIP due to its panel based structure and m3 due to the cubic volume.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldProject gallerySee allShow lessKäpäcläjui Indigenous Training Center / Entre Nos AtelierSelected ProjectsHouse in Ávila / Claudia Olalla GilSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/580330/sip-m3-house-ian-hsu-gabriel-rudolphy Clipboard SIP m3 House / Ian Hsü + Gabriel RudolphySave this projectSaveSIP m3 House / Ian Hsü + Gabriel Rudolphy CopyHouses•Colina, Chilelast_img read more

Camphill Family raise over £1 million with Christmas Appeal

To date, £1,123,000 has been raised, equating to a return on investment of around 13:1.The database was split into 26 segments to ensure that donors’ individual preferences and interests could be addressed directly. For instance, 50% of the file choose to hear from The Camphill Family only at Christmas, while another 10% have previously indicated that they prefer not to be asked directly for a donation.Creatively, the mailing embodied the highly personal, yet understated, style that Burnett Works has developed for The Camphill Family over recent years. This distinguishes the pack from many other charity mailings which often take a more corporate approach.The focus of the pack is on the ordinary, family nature of the home with images that are likely to resonate with the audience as familiar to their own family life. The covering letter conveys a personal appeal, not from a chief executive or paid employee, but from someone who has dedicated his life to working with people with special needs in a voluntary capacity and who knows the appeal’s beneficiaries as friends and individuals.more: www.burnett-works.com About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Students organize to support Cuban Five

first_imgFrom left, speakers Ike Nahem of July 26 Coalition, Randolph Caar of the Black Students Organization, Venezuelan Ambassador Julio Escalona, Imani Brown, Cuban Ambassador Rodolfo Reyes, and Chicano Caucus members David Luna and Geraldo Romo.Photo: Robert J. MercadoNew York — Students at Columbia University held an important forum on campus to build solidarity with the Cuban Five. The event was co-organized by several student organizations with the July 26 Coalition in New York City.The Five are Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González, Cuban citizens held unjustly for 15 years in U.S. prisons, and René González, recently released but still serving time on parole in Florida.Their conviction was allegedly for con­spi­racy to commit espionage and, in Hernández’s case, conspiracy to commit murder. In reality, their crime was to defend Cuba from terrorism carried out by right-wing, Miami-based Cuban exiles with the full knowledge of the U.S. ­authorities.After welcoming the audience, Imani Brown, of the Caribbean Students Association, described the students’ desire to increase visibility and action around the gross human rights violations carried out against the Five. She noted that the students experienced difficulties while trying to organize an event that was deemed controversial, but that did not stop them.Student organizers also sought to ground themselves in the historical and political context of the case and to identify intersections with struggles they already identified as their own. As a Caribbean student, she noted that Cuba’s social, cultural and economic history, and long history of real solidarity with its neighbors, has had a deeply lasting impact on the region and provides an unparalleled model for alternative modes of development.David Luna and Geraldo Romo read a statement affirming that the Chicano Caucus stands in solidarity with the Cuban Five, whose case they see as a manifestation of the corrupt U.S. justice system, which disproportionately target Black and Latino youth, Latina and trans women.This justice system, they said, violates individuals’ and families’ basic human rights, including physical, emotional and sexual violence, as it capitalizes on immigrant labor by day and detains undocumented laborers under the harshest conditions by night, and continuously deports people it deems “illegal.”U.S. gov’t pressured jurorsMartin Garbus, lead attorney for the Five, gave a legal update, stating that four of the Five are in the midst of habeas corpus appeals. Motions have been filed by their attorneys seeking evidence the U.S. government withheld and asking the judge to grant evidentiary hearings. A decision is awaited.Garbus also described some of the many violations that occurred during the trial, some unreported at the time. He discussed how the U.S. government paid up to 40 journalists to demonize the defendants, how the trial was pursued to influence Florida elections in 2000, and how jurors’ names and images were repeatedly displayed on TV to intimidate them so they wouldn’t acquit.Rodolfo Reyes Rodrigues, Cuban ambassador to the United Nations, remarked that several of the Five could have been in his shoes, and vice versa. Two of the Five, Hernández and González, had studied with him to be diplomats. They had volunteered, like Reyes, in Angola, helping to defend the newly independent country from invading forces from apartheid South Africa.Reyes raised known terrorist Luis Posada Carrilles, responsible for the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airline that killed 73 people and bombings of Cuba’s essential tourism industry in the 1990s, which killed an Italian tourist in addition to Cuban citizens. The U.S. allows him to live freely in Miami, where exiles continue to plot against the Cuban revolution, highlighting why the Five had to undertake their mission.Reyes thanked everyone in the audience for all their efforts to spread the story of the Five and win their freedom, for it is also a show of solidarity with all of Cuba. He concluded by describing the five heroes as “the best part of the generation born after the revolution.”Luis Rosa, who spent 18 years in prison for his struggle for Puerto Rican freedom, said that the U.S. government denies it has political prisoners in order to perpetuate the lie that it is the ultimate defender of freedom, justice, democracy and human rights in the world. But in reality there are hundreds like Rosa still locked up in the world’s largest prison population.While the U.S. government continues to violate prisoners’ basic human rights with isolation, sensory deprivation and other forms of torture, Rosa noted that the prisoners persevere, getting energized with each act of solidarity by their supporters on the outside. Speaking up for the Cuban Five is also speaking up for Oscar Lopez Rivera, Mutulu Shakur, Leonard Peltier, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Sudiata Acoli and many other prisoners.5 days for Cuban 5Rosa encouraged the audience to participate in an important rally in Washington, D.C., on June 1, as part of the “Five Days for the Cuban Five” activities (see thecuban5.org). For bus information from New York City, call 347-201-3728.Nancy Cabrero, co-chair of Casa de las Americas, and people’s lawyer Michael Tarif Warren, presided over the event. Julio Escalona, Venezuelan deputy ambassador to the U.N., also spoke in defense of the Five. Actor Danny Glover sent a videotaped solidarity message, and La Brigada Bolivariana gave a musical performance to conclude the evening.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Justice for Breonna Taylor and Black lives in Seattle

first_imgDecriminalize Seattle.Seattle — Demonstrators marched here on Sept. 24 to protest the previous day’s decision by a grand jury in Louisville, Ky., not to bring charges against the cops who murdered Breonna Taylor. Hundreds took to the streets for hours, until after midnight, and  marched on the Capital Hill precinct, which is bunkered behind huge cement blocks.In retaliation, the cops used blast balls and pepper spray, and even ran people over with their police bikes. The cop violence tended to anger people even more. Thirteen anti-racists were arrested.Black Lives Matter protests have now continued in Seattle for at least 117 days straight. There’s a morning march, a day march and a night march. Black people lead the marches, which are held in different neighborhoods all over the city. The anti-racists sometimes disrupt status quo events and are sometimes attacked by the police. They are also holding trainings and educationals.The Seattle City Council had voted for a budget proposal that would reduce police positions and invest the money saved in community-based programs.  It would also cut the “navigation teams” that evict houseless people from their encampments. Mayor Jenny Durkan vetoed the proposal. But on Sept. 22, feeling the pressure of the oppressed working class, the City Council voted 7-2 to override Mayor Durkan’s veto.The groups King County Equity Now and Decriminalize Seattle, which represent oppressed communities, said in a statement: “The council’s move marks an urgent break from the decades of votes to expand racist policing.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Key GMO Labeling Vote Expected Wednesday

first_img Previous articleInterest Rates Not Changing at Next Fed MeetingNext articleHolcomb joins ISDA in Saluting Indiana on National Agriculture Day Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Key GMO Labeling Vote Expected Wednesday By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 15, 2016 SHARE Key GMO Labeling Vote Expected Wednesday A procedural vote on a revised GMO labeling bill should come sometime Wednesday in the Senate. The debate started Monday on the revised bill by Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts that mirrors the proposal by USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack. Politico reports the bill would give the food industry two years to get at least 70 percent of its food products into the Grocery Manufacturers Association’s SmartLabel program before allowing the federal government to create mandatory labeling rules. Roberts said talks remained on trying capture the 60 votes needed to prevent a filibuster in the Senate, allowing the bill to move forward. Roberts said he has “sound science” on his side and the bill has massive support from agriculture groups.However, Senate Agriculture Committee Ranking Democrat Debbie Stabenow does not support the measure, along with Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley. Merkley introduced a mandatory labeling bill in the Senate following the Agriculture Committee’s approval of a voluntary labeling bill.Source: NAFB News service Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more
