Western Force allowed Ripia replacement

first_imgMELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 17: Willie Ripia of the Force kicks the winning penalty goal during the round 18 Super Rugby match between the Rebels and the Force at AAMI Park on June 17, 2011 in Melbourne, Australia. (Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Ripia was forced to resign after it was revealed he was caught stealing from teammates, in their Perth based locker room. Ripia has had previous personal problems and was in counseling, with the support of his club, for a gambling addiction. New Zealand born Ripia resigned due to stealing from teammatesFollowing the departure of Foreign Developing player Willie Ripia on Tuesday evening, the Emirates Western Force has been granted special permission by the Australian Rugby Union to recruit a replacement player. Full squad lists were declared by December 31, 2011, and as such Western Force made request to the ARU for another player to be recruited in place of Ripia.The contract rules allow the ARU to permit a Super Rugby team to replace a nominated player where it sees fit and with the overall interests of Australian rugby. With the start of the 2012 season fast approaching, head coach Richard Graham has to move fast.“We are pleased with the ARU’s decision to allow us to recruit a replacement player under the circumstances and will look to fill that gap as soon as we can,” Graham said. After losing James O’Connor to the Melbourne Rebels, the pressure is on for Graham to recruit a new player. He remains confident in his current playing stocks at the club.“James Stannard proved more than capable in the number 10 jersey at the back end of the 2011 season and the playing group have a lot of confidence in his control and ability,” said Graham. Ben Seymour and Kyle Godwin are continuing to develop in a competitive environment and will add competition and depth to that position. Obviously this has been a disappointing outcome for the squad but our main focus is moving forward and continuing our preparations for the 2012 season.”last_img read more

Villa In Dolni Dobrouc / Alexandr Skalický Architekt

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/118428/villa-in-dolni-dobrouc-alexandr-skalicky-architekt Clipboard ArchDaily Villa In Dolni Dobrouc / Alexandr Skalický Architekt “COPY” Save this picture!© Ester Havlová+ 12 Share Czech Republic Projects Photographs:  Ester HavlováText description provided by the architects. The basic idea of the design of the Villa is based on the layout of its internal rooms and on the work with the interior as a kind of “residential countryside”. The internal rooms and the immediate surroundings of the Villa form a “spatial zone” which runs through the Villa and its surroundings as a continuous line. The Villa is partly sung in the slope of a hill to form a large and flat entrance area in front of the house. This area is the first “external” room of the Villa. It is here where the visual contact with the Villa actually begins. The space that begins in this place runs, with various modifications, through the whole house. Behind the entrance area, the “zone” enters the internal space of the Villa. The zone consists of two inside floors. From the entrance hall which is on the lower level, the “interconnected space” leads to the residential floor in the upper level via an open staircase and ends before the dining and living rooms. Save this picture!© Ester HavlováThe terrain just next to the sunk entrance area has been landscaped so that it follows the slope of the hill. Visually, the Villa looks lower than it actually is. The landscaped terrain creates a feeling that the main entrance is on the underground floor. For that reason, the entrance hall, despite its spaciousness, makes a rather confined impression. The main residential rooms of the Villa are upstairs. Individual residential rooms are indicated by walled partitions which do not reach up to the ceiling or to the side walls. The glazed wall of the residential hall looks out on the garden to the south and is not visible from the entrance. Save this picture!© Ester HavlováThat is the reason why even the overall dimensions of the interior are not evident at first sight. The architect’s ambition was to incorporate a certain shock effect into the layout design. The shock effect is based on the character of the internal rooms. When visitors enter the Villa for the first time, they have a feeling that they are entering a confined underground structure. Nevertheless, after they go through the house and continue upstairs to the first floor, they get to a large room connected by a continuous glazed wall with the garden. If they look through the wall, they have a nice view of the other side of the valley. Save this picture!© Ester HavlováThe layout of the Villa resembles the letter “T”. Having many sections, the Villa cannot be seen as a whole from any place in the garden. Visually, the villa seems to be much smaller than it actually is. The overall composition of the villa also includes a double garage standing individually near the property entrance and forming a foreground of the mass composition.Save this picture!© Ester HavlováProject gallerySee allShow lessWest Kowloon Cultural District Selects City Park / Foster + PartnersArticlesEnergyscapesArticles Share CopyHouses•Dolní Dobrouč, Czech Republic “COPY”center_img Architects: Alexandr Skalický Architekt Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  CopyAbout this officeAlexandr Skalický ArchitektOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDolni DobroucHousesDolní DobroučCzech RepublicPublished on March 12, 2011Cite: “Villa In Dolni Dobrouc / Alexandr Skalický Architekt” 12 Mar 2011.

Also I spread a planting net and performed planting of a lawn. By this way, I harmonize the house and surrounding natural environment with floating house in natural terrain. To make the facade a sharp 3D impression, I designed protruded part of outer wall white color and retracted part gray color.Save this picture!© Toshihisa IshiiI paid much effort on hiding lighting equipment and air-conditioner to make a simple space.

British cyber-activist sued by Thai fruit company

first_img ThailandAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders calls on the Thai pineapple processing company Natural Fruit and the Thai judicial authorities to abandon the three defamation cases still pending against British human rights defender Andy Hall after a Bangkok court dismissed a fourth one today. August 21, 2020 Find out more News News Receive email alerts RSF_en News The case dismissed today ends the criminal defamation proceedings against Hall over an interview for Al Jazeera in April 2013 in which he commented on the earlier lawsuits that Natural Fruit brought against him over a report by the Finnish NGO Finnwatch for which he works. Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Thailand Newscenter_img to go further Organisation Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar May 12, 2021 Find out more ThailandAsia – Pacific September 18, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 British cyber-activist sued by Thai fruit company Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom An expert on migratory issues, Hall did an investigation for Finnwatch in 2012 into the conditions of Burmese migrant workers at a National Fruit processing plant in southern Thailand.When a Finnwatch report entitled “Cheap has a high price,” published in January 2013, highlighted grave human rights at the plant, Natural Fruit reacted immediately, bringing civil and criminal defamation cases against Hall but refraining from suing Finnwatch itself.Including the case filed after the Al Jazeera interview, a total of four cases were brought against Hall, two criminal ones and two civil ones seeking damages. The first criminal case, brought immediately after the report’s publication, also included a charge under the notorious Computer Crimes Act (CCA) that carries a possible seven-year jail term.After seven preliminary hearings from November 2014 to August 2015, a Bangkok criminal ruled that Hall should be formally indicted at a hearing set for 19 October. He will plead not guilty. Natural Fruit is also seeking 400 million bahts (10 million euros) in damages, an exorbitant amount showing that the company’s objective is to harass and intimidate.“We unreservedly condemn this judicial harassment of a human rights defender who documented grave violations of fundamental freedoms,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“The judicial system is once again aiming at the wrong target. Instead of tolerating this abusive recourse to Thailand’s defamation legislation and the Computer Crimes Act, it should pay closer attention violations of the rights of migrants working for Natural Fruit.”Ismaïl added: “Reforms of the criminal code and Computer Crimes Act are urgently needed. As long as such draconian laws continue to exist, cases of harassment of information providers will continue to proliferate and will perpetuate the disastrous climate of self-censorship.”The human rights violations denounced in the Finnwatch report were partially corroborated by a governmental investigation at the Natural Fruit plant in February 2013. The Thai judicial authorities nonetheless took no action against any of the company’s executives or its owner, Wirat Piyapornpaiboon, elder brother of the current secretary-general of Thailand’s Democratic Party.The Computer Crimes Act is often used to intimidate journalists and bloggers who publish sensitive information. Phuketwan news website journalists Alan Morison and Chutima Sidasathian were charged with defamation and violating the Computer Crimes Act in December 2013 over a July 2013 article about Burma’s Rohingya refugees headlined: “Thai military profiting from trade in boatpeople, says special report.”The prosecution was prompted by a quotation from a detailed Reuters report that said “Thai naval forces” were being paid by refugee traffickers to provide assistance or turn a blind eye.

Reporters Without Borders urges president and opposition prefects to restore calm after ten days of severe violence

first_img Follow the news on Bolivia BoliviaAmericas June 12, 2020 Find out more Mr. Evo Morales Ayma, president of BoliviaRubén Costas, prefect of Santa Cruz departmentLeopoldo Fernández, prefect of Pando departmentErnesto Suárez, prefect of Beni departmentMario Cossío, prefect of Tarija department Dear Mr President, Sirs,Reporters Without Borders, a worldwide organisation that defends press freedom, is pleased to note that President Evo Morales’ offer of talks has finally been accepted by opposition prefects after ten days of violence that has left at least 20 dead in the departments calling for autonomy and led to martial law being declared in Cobija, capital of Pando.This wave of clashes, following earlier outbreaks, has badly hit the press, particularly public and community media. The worst incidents have been the torching of state-run Canal 7-Televisión Boliviana, in Santa Cruz on 9 September by members of The Santa Cruz Youth Union (UJC), the abduction on 12 September, of Juan Domingo Yañique, of radio Red Patria Nueva by militants of the Beni civic committee and gunshot wounds suffered by Claudia Méndez, of privately-owned Red PAT, during a military operation in Cobija.Some media, such as Radio Frontera de Cobija (linked to the Erbol education network), decided to suspend broadcasts because of a lack of minimum safety guarantees for journalists. The press is clearly not the only victim of a political conflict, for which it must accept a share in the blame. The media has sometimes been party in its own way to a polarisation that has been turned against it, whether it is state-run or seen as pro-government, or private and viewed as supporting the opposition. However, as we have frequently said, the survival of a pluralist press – that plays a vital role in a democracy – has been compromised in a context that the political class has not known how to or wanted to curb.Abuses against the media by some militants belonging to separatist civil committee or by the highly dangerous Santa Cruz Youth Union, have not prompted the slightest repudiation nor appropriate reaction from the prefects who are nevertheless calling for greater powers within their departments. The government, for its part, has shown lack of firmness in the face of excesses by some of its most radical supporters. The dialogue which is beginning between you must lead to a clear joint will to save public freedoms. This must include a halt to exposing the media to public condemnation and to prevent attacks from within your own ranks against the right to inform the public.We are aware that the situation cannot be resolved if each side to the conflict fails to recognised the legitimacy of the other side. The autonomy claimed by some departments cannot be used a priori to disqualify a head of state democratically elected and confirmed in his post in the 10 August recall referendum. This same poll also allowed prefects to retain their positions. We hope that a political agreement will become part of the new Constitution sought by President Evo Morales, the principle of which is the source of the conflict. Finally, we hope that the meeting today of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) in Santiago du Chili, will decisively contribute to the restoration of peace and public freedoms in Bolivia. Yours sincerely,Robert MénardSecretary General News Reporters Without Borders publicly appealed to president Evo Morales and four opposition prefects to put an end to ten days of violence in which 20 people have died and in which the media has been badly hit. The open letter is published as long-awaited dialogue opens between the government and the opposition.

EXPLAINER: How glaciers can burst and send floods downstream

The floods that slammed into two hydroelectric plants and damaged villages in northern India were set off by a break on a Himalayan glacier upstream. Glaciers advance and retreat with cycles of snowfall and melting, and can form glacial lakes behind them. This pattern builds up water, as well as a risk the water will break free and flood areas downstream.center_img Local NewsUS News Pinterest TAGS  WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 Previous articleWater cannon fired at protesters as tensions rise in MyanmarNext articleIsraeli PM’s corruption trial resumes weeks before election Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more
