Bulldogs legend talks up ‘freak’ Savea’s chances in League

first_imgMonday Feb 24, 2020 Bulldogs legend talks up ‘freak’ Savea’s chances in League Former rugby league star Willie Mason believes Ardie Savea would “terrorise people” should he make a move to rugby league.ADVERTISEMENTThis comes after the All Blacks loose forward revealed that he is contemplating a code switch at some point in the future, which will have put many NRL clubs on red alert.There is no debate that the 26-year-old is one of union’s finest players currently, having made the shortlist for the World Rugby player of the year in 2019, but is clearly lured by the challenge of a new code, citing the success of his former All Blacks teammate Sonny Bill Williams as inspiration. He said:“Learning a whole new game and seeing if I can dominate or, play the way I play in union, that excites me. Seeing guys like Sonny do it kind of plays on my mind a bit.”In light of these comments, Mason, who was an NRL winner alongside Williams in 2004 with the Canterbury Bulldogs, has said on Twitter “I don’t care who he plays for, but if Ardie Savea wants to play NRL can we please grab him ASAP!”Savea is known for his tireless work rate in union, as well as his ball-carrying prowess. Having featured on the sevens circuit, he is equally adept in the loose as he is in the tight quarters of the pitch, with pace and footwork to complement his explosive power, and is worthy of Mason’s billing as a “freak”.ADVERTISEMENTThe former Australia international has tipped the Hurricanes star to play as a left centre or second-row, the same position as Williams, in league, highlighting his footwork, speed and left arm carry as his strengths.Savea’s contract with New Zealand Rugby is set to expire in 2021, and after these latest comments there will be a litany of clubs in both union and league clambering to sign him, and Mason will not be the only person desperate to see him switch codes.

The house is located in Todoroki, Tokyo. If you walk around Todoroki, you would notice how hilly this district is. No wonder, you then come across a “canyon” at the heart of the residences – Todoroki Keikoku, the only gorge existing in Tokyo. The repeating ups and downs in the area are actually a part of the topography from the Ice Age – a dynamic environment created in some 10,000 years of time. Save this picture!© MuraguchiIn order to preserve this rich nature surrounding the canyon, regulations for this area prescribe a setback (receding of the wall) from the border of the site and greening of the outside space. Save this picture!© MuraguchiBy taking advantage of these rules, the residential area can generate a “green ring in sequence”, where green circles continue to develop. Save this picture!© MuraguchiWe approached with a broad concept for the house – the design wouldn’t complete just within the site but could also offer a sense of “movement” and “series of green rings” – which you would find throughout the entire landscape of Todoroki. Save this picture!© MuraguchiThe site is so-called a flag lot. It has a “circular garden” which you can walk around as you take the passage to the site. The circular garden receives the frame from inside structure so that the garden could function as a midway area. In the house, all the essential elements for living are concentrated into the center and the residents move around it. Save this picture!Floor PlansWe used traditional carpenter-made wooden modules for structural frame. Then we installed the glass fabrication an outsourced curtain wall of Low-e pair glass. Living spaces are arranged by big furniture, so it is a self-build house overall. It is mostly glazed, but because of the site located off from the street in a different height, and the circular garden working as a buffer, the house curiously merges into the surrounding residential environment.  Save this picture!© MuraguchiBuilding cost was kept low by simplifying the construction method, and the whole planning is open and flexible enough to accommodate renovation or resale of the house.  Project gallerySee allShow lessTopfer Theatre at ZACH / Andersson Wise ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSpanish Pavilion Expo Zaragoza 2008 / Francisco MangadoSelected Projects Share Photographs Projects Area:  85 m² Area:  85 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Setagaya, Japanlast_img read more

This project is a contemporary translation of the ordinary suburban house. In their spirit, the house is built economically using everyday materials and techniques easily sourced and knowledgeable for a local builder and tradesmen. These materials and techniques are amplified and exaggerated to become something at once ambiguous but familiar. The house is situated in a garden at the end of a short terrace of a 1940’s suburban estate on the edge of Dublin city. The site is bounded to the south by an existing hedge of hazel and privet, to the northwest by the blank wall of the original terrace and to the northeast by a high wall backing onto a public laneway.Save this picture!© David GrandorgeSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsThe ground floor layout is derived from the planning requirements for outdoor amenity space. To maximize the presence of the garden it takes advantage of the excellent privacy provided by the thick hedgerow.  At the ground level, the majority of the supporting walls are located within an internal cross-shaped core, allowing a curtain of timber and glass folding doors to wrap the exterior of the house for direct connection and access to the garden. Internally a cross-shaped core divides the plan into 4 public rooms: a hall/library, kitchen, dining and living room. These rooms are located according to proportion and orientation and step in section to accommodate ceiling heights of varying dimension and intimacy.Save this picture!Front ElevationA recessed ceiling track allows the rooms to be completely wrapped in curtain when required. The core contains the service and plumbed elements of the plant, wash closet, kitchen appliances, fireplace as well as storage and the staircase. A continuous loop of circulation is along the perimeter. On fine days, the folding doors can slide back from their corners allowing the house to spread outside – reducing the house’s footprint to the structural core and increasing the area of external amenity. The gardens are planted to provide a variety of flora, much edible, responding to light, shade, aspect, and condition. A south-facing terrace is located with a bench built into a new inhabited garden wall. The house has a BER rating of A2 but it wears it lightly not as a badge.Save this picture!© David GrandorgeThe first floor is laid out with three bedrooms and a bathroom off a small central landing. The landing is lit from a tall roof light contained within an extruded chimneystack and lined in timber paneling up to door height. The landing is one door wide and two doors in length. From this space, paneled doors open into generously proportioned bedrooms side lit from large windows sitting on the skirting of the opposing walls. The ceilings are draped along the pitch of the roof, falling from 4.5m above the sweep of the doorway to 2m around the perimeter. These rooms are lined in through-colored Valchromat MDF with a marquetry Valchromat MDF floor. Radiators, sockets, MHVR grilles, sensors, and switches are framed within these MDF elaborations.Save this picture!Section DetailsExternally, the house is treated in a manner similar but exaggerated to the immediate terrace housing. The masonry walls are finished in a pigmented off-white cementitious render, deeply roughcast on the garden side and hand trowelled smooth on the laneway elevation and public faces. A heather colored fiber cement roof is elaborated with expressed untreated copper crampions, copper guttering, and tall standing seam hips. Copper downpipes are used to draw figures across blank parts of the façade reminiscent of a line drawing. Over time these elements will oxidize to a pale powder green. Where the house meets the laneway a simple gable is projected with the image of a doorway and window set in relief.

Another legal victory for Angola 3’s Albert Woodfox

first_imgAlbert WoodfoxAlbert Woodfox, one of the Angola 3 political prisoners, has spent 42 years in solitary confinement in Louisiana. On Nov. 20, a three-judge panel of the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously to uphold a lower court’s decision to overturn Woodfox’s conviction for killing a prison guard (see workers.org: “Court rules for Albert Woodfox, now let him go!”). The following email update was released by the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3 on Feb. 3.Today the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the unanimous decision of their own three-judge panel and denied Attorney General Buddy Caldwell’s request for an “en banc” rehearing of Albert’s case. This was the state’s last shot to reinstate Albert’s third overturned conviction through the U.S. Court of Appeals.Though we expect they may continue to delay justice with a vain attempt to convince the U.S. Supreme Court to undo decades of solidly established constitutional law, Judge Brady’s original February 2013 decision throwing out Albert’s murder conviction stands stronger than ever before and it is now only a matter of time until the state is forced to either release or retry him.In just over two weeks, on Thursday, Feb. 19, Albert will turn 68 years old. Though there are still weeks and months yet to go before he is released, he has never been closer to freedom.Please take a moment to send him a note letting him know that we will continue to fight every day until he is freed — this will be the last birthday he will spend in a solitary cell!Albert Woodfox #72148David Wade Correctional Center670 Bell Hill RoadHomer, LA 71040FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Key termination issues in Ireland

first_imgKey termination issues in IrelandOn 30 May 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Employment lawyer Grahame Walsh, of Irish law firm McCann Fitzgerald, givesan overview of procedures employers have to go through to terminate a contractin Ireland, and the protection employees have against unfair dismissalWhen dealing with termination of employment in Ireland, employers need to beaware not only of the traditional common law protections and statutoryprovisions that prevent an employee from being wrongly or unfairly dismissed,but also of the likelihood that an aggrieved employee may turn immediately tothe courts and seek an order preventing the termination by way of injunction. Anti-dismissal injunction The Irish courts have, in a series of recent employment-related cases,granted injunctions preventing the implementation of a termination ofemployment and ordering restoration of benefits such as salary, pensioncontributions, and provision of a car pending the trial of a claim that anindividual has been wrongfully dismissed. In a few rare cases, it has directed reinstatement pending trial.Injunctions have been granted in a number of circumstances, including summarydismissal, lack of fair procedures, lack of notice and constructive dismissal. Traditionally, courts would not, at common law, order what was effectivelythe continuance of a contract of employment by re-instating an employee. The effect of the injunction remedy is to cause employers to act, pendingdetermination as to whether the employer is entitled to terminate theemployment relationship, in all respects as if the individual were still anemployee. In theory, the individual is available to his or her employer but,practically, the purportedly dismissed employee will not return to his or herplace of work. It is for that reason that almost all such cases have beencommercially resolved following the injunction application. The Irish courts place great emphasis on the principles of natural andconstitutional justice, and have granted injunctions in cases where employershave failed to observe proper and fair procedures in the manner in which theyseek to terminate a contract of employment. In one Supreme Court decision, the judge, in granting an order to prevent atermination, stated that, “Dismissal from one’s employment for allegedmisconduct with possible loss of pension rights and damage to one’s good namemay, in modern society, be disastrous for any citizen. “These are circumstances in which any citizen, however humble, may beentitled to the protection of natural and constitutional justice.” A court may award an employee who has been wrongfully dismissed damages forlosses suffered as a result of the unlawful breach of the employment contract. In addition to a claim for damages consequent upon a breach of the contract,related claims are also being made for discrimination and stress-inducedillness. Unfair Dismissal Under Unfair Dismissals legislation, an employee who has worked for at leasteight hours per week for more than a year is entitled to rely on thelegislation to challenge a dismissal. Under the legislation, a dismissal isdeemed to be unfair and the onus is on the employer to establish otherwise. Dismissals may be justified on one of a number of grounds, including theemployee’s competence, capability, conduct or redundancy. In addition todemonstrating that there were substantial grounds justifying the dismissal, theemployer must show that it acted reasonably in effecting the dismissal. An employer considering dismissal for poor performance should apply fairprocedures, such as notifying the employee of the dissatisfaction and affordingan opportunity to improve before effecting the dismissal. In a redundancy situation, the employer must show not only that a genuineredundancy situation existed, but also that the employee was fairly selectedfor redundancy. Employees must be informed about the disciplinary procedures at theirworkplace and should be notified of any changes. In the event that no such procedure exists, the employer must neverthelessfollow a fair and reasonable procedure. As a minimum, the employee must be informed of the reason for thetermination and given an adequate opportunity to make representations. The procedures followed by an employer may be important when decidingwhether a particular dismissal was fair or not. Irish courts and tribunals have consistently held that where, objectively,there were substantial grounds justifying the termination of the contract butthe process of termination was procedurally flawed, the dismissal will beunlawful. In cases other than gross misconduct – when the employer is entitled toterminate without notice – an indefinite contract must be terminated by notice.Legislation sets out the minimum statutory notice periods that apply to allemployees who work for at least eight hours per week and have completed 13weeks of continuous service with the employer, however, in practice, individualcontracts will provide for longer notice periods. Remedies for Unfair Dismissal Claims of unfair dismissal are normally heard by the Employment AppealTribunal (EAT) and must be made within six months of the date of dismissal. If both parties agree, the claim can be heard more informally by a RightsCommissioner, whose recommendation may be appealed to the EAT. The remedy, which may be sought or awarded in the case of unfair dismissal,is reinstatement, re-engagement or compensation of up to a maximum of twoyear’s remuneration (includes salary plus all benefits). Special Protection Dismissals that are connected with pregnancy, religion, politics, race,colour, sexual orientation, age, membership of the travelling community ortrade union membership are automatically unfair. Selective dismissals ofemployees on strike are also unfair. Compromise agreements In effecting a termination, it is common practice in Ireland for employersto make, together with any statutory entitlements, an ex gratia payment to thedeparting employee. The level of this payment will depend on factors such asseniority, length of service, particular industry norms and any perceivedexposure that the employer may have in relation to the termination. In consideration for the ex gratia payment, the employee will normally signa compromise agreement in full and final settlement of any claims that they mayhave against their former employer. The agreement will generally contain a clause stating that the employee has,prior to signing, had the benefit of legal advice, nevertheless, as in the UK,the extent of the enforceability of such agreements is the subject of muchcurrent debate. The impact of the legislation and court decisions in Ireland is clear. Anemployer, in effecting a termination, must not only demonstrate thatsubstantial and justifiable grounds exist for the termination, but must alsoadhere rigidly to procedures that are demonstrably fair and reasonable. Failureto do so may involve the employer in costly and time consuming litigation.

Wales has only 33.Towns with the greatest number of million-busting streets where upmarket agents may be clinking their glasses – assuming they can find buyers for their listed properties – are all in the South East.This includes Reading, Guildford, Sevenoaks, Leatherhead, Farnham and Maidenhead.Lawrence Hall house price million pound homes Zoopla September 28, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
