True Glory – A Tribute to the Minnows

first_imgThursday Oct 4, 2007 True Glory – A Tribute to the Minnows With the group stages of the World Cup over and the Quarter Finals of the tournament starting this weekend, we take a look back at some of the stars of the first round. They came to the World Cup as nobodies. Not many of them play top flight rugby and the majority are amateurs. One thing is certain though, they left the greatest tournament in the world with their heads held high. These doctors, plumbers, shop owners and school teachers took to the field against men who literally get paid to play rugby, full time. Men who spend most days of the week in the gym and are on intensive fitness and skills training programs. And yet, this bunch of amateurs we’ve come to know as the ‘Minnows’ have fronted up and in some cases, struck real fear into the hearts of the top teams. We’ve all been thoroughly entertained and enamoured by these players that have given there all and sacrificed a great deal to represent their respective beloved countries. In the process they’ve made the world sit up and take notice of them. As in the past with previous traditional minnows Argentina, Tonga, Samoa, and Fiji, these sides will one day grow if given the opportunity. What some of us don’t realise is that these are not the bottom of the bottom in terms of world rugby. These teams qualified for the tournament, with some very competitive qualifying stages in each of their parts of the world. So they’ve earned their place. And now, the IRB want to cut the tournament down to 16 teams in 2011. I think I speak for all when I say we want to see these teams and these players in New Zealand in four years time. Please show your support by leaving a comment and maybe mentioning your favourite minnow moment of the tournament.

The Farmer’s House acts as the UK base for AR Design Studio’s clients, who return to the English countryside from their travels to tend to their farmstead. Set on a private estate in the most western part of the South Downs National Park, the house’s rural location is its raison d’etre.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerAR Design Studio were approached by the clients who were looking to add a completely self- contained yet joined annexe, that would be a space for their children and grandchildren to ‘take over’ when they were staying.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe existing house had been subject to a number of previous alterations and extensions throughout the years which had led to it feeling mismatched and sitting uncomfortably on the plot.Save this picture!Existing Ground floor planSave this picture!© Martin GardnerSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe team at AR Design Studio proposed an extension and makeover that would wrap everything together in a unified and elegant form. The old and new are joined by a glazed link that sits between the existing house and the new annexe. The annex, which sits to the east, is surrounded by a large covered alfresco dining and relaxing area. The terrace and pool sat centrally in front of the house are tied in with a large sweeping canopy above. This reaches around the existing house, and continues to the west of the plot, providing an additional sheltered seating space. This canopy incorporates openings for the existing trees and partial shading elements, providing protection to the southern facing façade with delicate timber louvres.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerIn terms of updating the existing house, the traditional geometry has been embraced, using materiality to tie the scheme together. The wrapping gesture is continued with an element of Zinc, beginning on the north elevation of the existing house and continuing over the roof to overhang and provide shading to the south elevation, while the remaining facades of the existing house are now clad in Kebony Wood to match the extension.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerA palette of natural and man-made materials was carefully curated. The zinc has a strong agricultural feel that defines the context and client’s heritage whilst providing a protective gesture. This is contrasted with the linear timber cladding which acts as a contemporary, yet rural material, and the fibre cement provides a cool toned solidity to compliment the warm details of timber.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerVisually, the extension appears as a single mass placed on the landscape, with the snug, kitchen/living and dining space, utility room, and two of 3 bedrooms on the ground floor. Small punctuations have been made into the timber cladding to introduce natural light, yet their scale kept modest to protect the rooms from the on looking driveway. The geometry of the façade is clad with fibre cement and provides the dining area with more privacy. The hidden subterranean mass below avoids a visual bulk which could otherwise swamp the existing house’s proportions, and includes a bedroom, plant room and garage space for 2 cars.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerInternally, the finishes have been kept minimal with cool grey tones, similar to that of the fibre cement cladding. Warm touches are constantly visible through the furnishings and timber cladding.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerEast facing bedrooms catch the morning light and have extensive views over the surrounding South Downs, whilst strategically placed skylights have been used throughout the project to introduce natural light into spaces deeper in the plan.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe scheme now stands as a single architectural form that stretches out across the garden setting. Looking at the wider context, the strong geometry sits amongst a structured landscape, which gradually dissolves into the farm land beyond.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerProject gallerySee allShow lessPontevedra Water Supply / Padilla Nicás ArquitectosSelected Projects64 Social Housing / Guinée et Potin Architectes + Alterlab ArchitectesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Landscaping: Charlotte Murrell Landscape Designlast_img read more

Commissioned by a young couple, the brief was not complicated nor typical. With just the occupancy of 2 members, the intermediate terraced house was bigger than enough for the newly wed. The concept for the interior design was to resolve the daylight issue that occurs to most of intermediate terraced housing in Malaysia. With that, the bedroom at ground floor was taken down to allow a semi outdoor patio at the back of the house, which was separated with a glass panel door adjacent to the dining area. The dining space cum dry kitchen is now illuminated with ample of natural daylight and cross ventilation.Save this picture!© Raynce TanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Raynce TanAs a young couple, the living room was kept compacted with a comfy 3 seater sofa and a simple and minimal television console. The living area was linearly connected with a 6 seater solid wood dining table and quartz stone breakfast table. A concrete ledge was designed next to the dining table for casual seating during friends visit. The staircase were carefully treated with vertical timber panel to hide the staggering line of the staircase, which does not interact well with the other elements.Save this picture!© Raynce TanAt the front, the entrance was altered to have the main door at the side and a patio was created outside the living room. The new patio was layered by a new perforated panel which act as a grill and privacy screening. With this, the sliding door can be constantly open to create a maximum cross ventilation for the ground floor space. On the upper floor, the family room was converted to a walk in wardrobe with ample of daylight from the top hung window above.Save this picture!© Raynce TanThe master bedroom was carefully treated with carpentry to celebrate the a-frame ceiling provided by the Architect’s design.The overall tone and color was kept minimal and light.

Black entertainers & the roots of anti-Semitism — WW commentary

first_imgThe commentary below, “LeBron James’ apology & the roots of anti-Semitism” first appeared Dec. 29, 2018, on  Its reprint is a response to recent events, including the Instagram posting by DeSean Jackson — National Football League player with the Philadelphia Eagles — of a series of anti-Semitic comments during the first weekend in July.  LeBron James’ warm-up shirt quotes the late Eric Garner as he was being choked to death by New York police in 2014Jackson has since removed the posts, apologized and accepted an invitation to visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp museum. Entertainer Nick Cannon also made anti-Semitic remarks on a May 2019 podcast, publicly broadcast on June 30.  He apologized to the Jewish community, but one of his TV shows was terminated by ViacomCBS. Both Jackson and Cannon are African American. Ettinger’s article helps answer the question of why Black celebrities and athletes are held to a higher standard on this issue, while the ruling class and its puppet politicians are let off the hook. For example, Trump called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Va., “very fine people” in August 2017.  Actor Mel Gibson, a vocal anti-Semite, gets to sit in the front row at the Academy Awards.  This double standard is an all-too-familiar, divide-and-conquer tactic, always pulled out at the exact moment when the Black struggle — as today in the form of Black Lives Matter — is on the upsurge. — Monica MooreheadA beloved athlete posts a brief song lyric on social media. Commentators denounce the lyric as offensive and him as a bigot. He says he didn’t know it was offensive, and apologizes. What does it all signify?It signifies that it is in the interests of the capitalist ruling class to foment division and to blame the oppressed as somehow the real perpetrators of bias and bigotry.The athlete is Los Angeles Lakers basketball megastar LeBron James. The lyric, which he posted to Instagram Dec. 22, included the phrase “Jewish money” from a rap song by the performer 21 Savage he’d been listening to.Reaction was swift. Sports Business Daily reporter Darren Rovell took to Twitter to express his outrage and call on Jewish people, including National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver, to join him.Sports Business Daily is owned by Advance Publications Inc., a media conglomerate with vast holdings. These include Conde Nast, which publishes Vogue and Vanity Fair among other magazines; Fairchild Publications, which owns Women’s Wear Daily and other publications; and American City Business Journals, the biggest publisher of metropolitan business newsweeklies in the United States.SBD is, in other words, a major capitalist media outlet. It posted $2.2 billion in revenues in 2017. Rovell, formerly of the worldwide sports conglomerate ESPN, the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, is one of its best-known commentators and a right-winger.In fact, the headline of Newsweek magazine’s Dec. 23 article on this “controversy” characterized James’ Twitter post as “angering conservative critics.”So a reactionary writer for a website devoted to the profitability of professional sports tries to stir up hostility toward one of the country’s most prominent and progressive Black athletes for an unintended and immediately retracted reference. Although the attempt ultimately fizzled, and did not draw in Commissioner Silver, it did gather some support, mostly on Twitter, where dozens of tweets called James anti-Semitic.The day after his tweet, LeBron James said on ESPN: “Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone. … I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously it wasn’t through the lens of a lot of people. My apologies. It definitely was not the intent, obviously, to hurt anybody.” (Dec. 22, 2018)It seems clear, it rings true, that James honestly didn’t know the historical meaning and use of phrases like “Jewish money” as fodder for anti-Semitism.  He apologized anyway. What more could he do?Also on a Dec. 22 episode of his HBO series, “The Shop,” James criticized the majority of white National Football League billionaire owners for having a “slave mentality” by disregarding the rights of their players, 70 percent of whom are Black. (, Dec. 22, 2018)  James made no apology for this accurate statement.Real source of anti-SemitismThis is far from the first time that a prominent person of color, especially a Black person who is an outspoken activist against racism, as is LeBron James, has been lambasted as an anti-Semite.  It’s not the first effort to direct anger and fear, especially Jewish anger and fear, against such a person.The issue, in reality, is never what the person did or didn’t say, or how perfectly phrased the person’s apology was. The issue is that it is in the ruling class’s interest to deflect attention from the real source of anti-Semitism: itself.Anti-Semitism is a very old, very effective strategy to direct the working class’s rage away from the true source of its problems: the ruling class, which is overwhelmingly made up of white, Anglo-Saxon Protestants. It instead portrays Jewish people, a tiny group — only 0.2 percent of the world’s population — as somehow owning and controlling the world’s wealth by being devious, evil schemers bent on driving workers and the poor into poverty and misery.While its roots are deep and wide and go back millennia, anti-Semitism flourished during the rise of capitalism in Europe. From 19th-century czarism in Russia through the Nazi genocide, it was skillfully crafted as a tactic to break up revolutionary movements. To this day, with resurgent fascist organizing again casting caricatured Jewish bankers as the culprit behind workers’ worsening standard of living in Germany, France and other countries, the capitalists wield anti-Semitism as a favored tool.In this context, the absurdity of portraying oppressed communities as purveyors of anti-Semitism should be clear. Who has the motive and the power to foment attacks against Jewish people? Who poses an actual threat to Jewish people?Of course it is not, and can never be, the oppressed. Of course it is only, and will always be, the bosses.The threat is real, as evidenced by the Oct. 27 massacre at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Emboldened under Trump, previously suppressed elements, the worst violent, anti-Semitic scum, are surfacing and acting in a way that has not been seen in this country for decades. At the same time, racist attacks, already epidemic, are on the rise, whether against Latinx migrants, Black youth or other oppressed people.The only effective response is unity, first and foremost against racism, and against all forms of bias and division, from anti-Semitism to sexism to LGBTQ2S+ oppression. It’s this unity, rejecting the bosses’ attempts to divert anger away from themselves, that will move the struggle of the workers and oppressed forward against capitalism itselfLeBron James’ warm-up shirt quotes the late Eric Garner as he was being choked to death by New York police in 2014FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Turnovers and Dedric Lawson doom No. 25 TCU’s upset bid against No. 7 Kansas

Collier ReddIt printKansas guard Devon Dotson contests TCU guard Alex Robinson’s lay-up attempt. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Two of TCU’s season-worst 20 turnovers committed late in the final 1:40 doomed their attempt to secure the program’s first win in eight tries at Allen Fieldhouse on Wednesday in Lawrence, as they fell by nine, 77-86 to the No. 7 Kansas Jayhawks.The loss snaps the No. 25 Horned Frogs nine-game winning streak and drops their record to 12-2 and 1-1 in the Big 12.“I thought we would handle the defensive pressure they would throw at us, but we didn’t,” said TCU head coach Jamie Dixon. “We’ll learn from it, but give them credit for wearing us down, going inside, and being the more physical team.”Entering the contest, TCU lead the Big 12 in assist-to-turnover ratio at 1.7, but they were only able to dish out 12 assists to their 20 giveaways.Balanced scoring allowed the Horned Frogs to hang with the Jayhawks for most of the night as five of the seven players to see the floor totaled double-digit points. Guard RJ Nembhard led the way with 14, Desmond Bane scored 13, guard Alex Robinson and center Kevin Samuel each accounted for 12, and Kuoat Noi finished with 10.TCU guard RJ Nembhard drives to the hoop against Kansas guard Lagerald Vick. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Kansas’ offense was anything but balanced as forward Dedric Lawson led all players with 31 points and 14 rebounds.“He’s good, that’s what they do, and we prepared for it by double-teaming, and he still got 31, which isn’t a good sign,” Dixon said. “He’s a good free throw shooter too, which is another problem. They do a good job getting him the ball.”Kansas also more than doubled TCU’s free throw attempts shooting 20-of-27 from the line off the Horned Frogs’ 18 fouls while TCU went 9-for-13 shooting free throws on the Jayhawks’ 13 fouls. Lawson had 9 of his 31 from the line.The Jayhawks and Horned Frogs were neck and neck for the majority of the first half, as Kansas held a one-point edge, 29-28, with 3:13 left in the first half.At the half, the Jayhawks held a nine-point lead, 40-31, as they scored 11 of the final 14 points.The first few minutes of the second half were reminiscent of the first, back and forth, but the Horned Frogs began to break through after the opening five minutes. TCU would score seven straight to trim the KU to just two, 52-50, with 12:42 left to play. Nembhard drained a three-pointer from the right wing, guard Kendric Davis finished a smooth up-and-under lay-up, and forward Kouat Noi laid-in a fast break bucket at the rim.TCU guard Kendric Davis drives to the basket against Kansas guard Marcus Garrett. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.With TCU still down two after another Nembhard three-pointer, 55-53, the Kansas defense tightened, forcing three turnovers that allowed them to take an 11-point lead, 64-53, with 8:05 remaining.The Horned Frogs wouldn’t go away, scoring six in a row courtesy of lay-ups from Robinson, Davis, and Samuel, which left them down five, 64-59, with 5:08 left to play. However, the Jayhawks countered with two more Lawson free throws and a Vick jumper to go back up nine, 68-59. TCU would answer with back-to-back three-pointers from Robinson and Bane, which had the Horned Frogs down three, 68-65, with 3:34 to go.TCU guard Desmond Bane pulls up for a three-pointer against No. 7 Kansas.

Shots fired at Manaus daily after stories about another Amazon city’s corruption links

The police seem to think the culprits were disgruntled former employees but Reporters Without Borders notes that the newspaper had just covered several corruption cases allegedly implicating the government of Coari, a city 350 km west of Manaus.“We are relieved to learn that no one was hurt in the shooting attack on Diário de Amazonas, the press freedom organisation said. “But, as the Brazilian press pointed out, the attack came barely 24 hours after the arrests of several of the mayor of Coari’s alleged close associates who had been linked by the newspaper to serious crimes.”Reporters Without Borders added: “It is vital that the police investigate the possibility that these reports were the motive for the attack. The newspaper’s open opposition to the government of Amazonas state must not affect the investigation, and its staff must be given proper police protection.”Eleven shots were fired at the Diário de Amazonas building in central Manaus at about 4:30 a.m. on 21 June by two individuals on a motorcycle armed with PT-380 type pistols. The national press quoted police sources as saying six bullets damaged the main entrance and five others shattered windows on the first storey, where the newspaper’s president and vice-president have their offices.Surveillance cameras installed outside the building should have recorded the incident but little has been revealed about the investigation launched by the Amazonas state public security department. The O Estado de São Paulo newspaper said the police were working on the theory that the shooting as an acting of revenge by former employees.Diário de Amazonas is known for its hard-hitting investigative reporting on the local political scene. It revealed on 15 January that the state government had paid a private company 18 million reals (7 million euros) for work that was never done.This weekend’s shooting attack came a day after a federal police operation codenamed “Vorax” in which 23 people linked professionally or personally to Coari mayor Adail Pinheiro were arrested. A week earlier, Diário de Amazonas published transcripts of phone taps pointing to the existence of shady deals between the Coari municipal government and the Amazonas state court.A week before that, Diário de Amazonas linked the Coari municipal government to alleged corruption, embezzlement and, according to the daily O Globo, even child prostitution. Organisation BrazilAmericas News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Reporters Without Borders calls for effective protection for the staff of the Manaus-based Diário de Amazonas after 11 shots were fired on its headquarters on 21 June. The organisation hopes that the tense relations between the newspaper and the local authorities will not affect the investigation into the shooting.

RSF offers its condolences to her family and friends.A journalist with a long and varied career in Spain, Malén Aznárez was elected vice-president of RSF Spain’s board of governors in 2008 and had been its president since June 2011. She had been fighting her illness for several months.“We are extremely saddened by the loss of our colleague and friend Malén Aznárez,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Malén had been putting her extraordinary energy and experience at the service of our organization and, above all, at the service of media freedom for nearly ten years and she continued the fight until her last breath.”Born in Santander in 1943 and a graduate of the Official School of Journalism in Madrid in 1972, Malén Aznárez had a long and brilliant journalistic career in Spain. In the 1980s, she became the first woman to head a state-owned media group, Medios de Comunicación del Estado. She went on to be head of news at the national radio broadcaster, Radio Nacional de España, and national news editor at the magazine El Globo, before joining the El País group in 1998.She worked at El País until 2014 as a reporter, as social section editor, as the newspaper’s ombudsman and for the magazine’s science section. She was also a professor at the El País Journalism School.When she joined RSF Spain as vice-president in 2008, the then president, María Dolores Massana, gave her two tasks – drafting the RSF Spain Annual Report, the publication of which has come to be a major event in Spain, and coordinating campaigns in support of imprisoned journalists.After taking over as president in 2011, she developed the section’s activities with the help of a team of volunteers ­– supporting journalists in difficulty, assisting freelancers, lobbying for the independence of the state-owned media, and lobbying for media freedom in Spain and the rest of the world.Her biggest successes include her fight against Spain’s “Gag Law” (restricting the right of Spanish journalists to cover protests and photograph the police) and her fight for the release of three Spanish journalists who were kidnapped in Syria in 2015 and who were finally freed the following year. She also sponsored Dawit Isaak, a Swedish-Eritrean journalist imprisoned in Eritrea since 2001 (see her last article on Dawit Isaak, published in El País on 31 March 2017).Her campaigning will not be in vain. Everyone at RSF will remember the determination, courage and commitment of this great journalist and media freedom advocate, and will share in the sorrow of her friends and family.
