Inside – Biarritz Olympique documentary

first_imgWednesday Jun 23, 2010 Inside – Biarritz Olympique documentary ‘Inside’ is a rugby documentary that charts the progress of French Top 14 side Biarritz as they set out to make it to the Heineken Cup final. It is yet to be released, but looks fascinating so today weve got a preview clip for you.Made by brothers Michel and Nicolas Arribehaute, the documentary came about a few months back when they proposed the plan to Serge Blanco. He liked the idea of showing fans what they dont normally see when they follow their team.“We contacted Michael Azoulay, Secretary General of Biarritz Olympic sports. He was hooked. It remained to be cleared by Serge Blanco. The latter was excited.“From that moment, Peter Bousquier, the director general of the club undertook to facilitate our task, to fully integrate us into the group. We have been adopted by the family of BOPB.”They sensed early on that Biarritz would make it to the final, but if they were knocked out early, there would be no movie. They made it to the end, and while the result wasnt quite as planned, the low budget documentary still managed to capture everything that goes on behind the scenes of the historic campaign.The brothers say they are both rugby players and movie fans, taking inspiration from Gus Van Sant, Quentin Tarantino and Clint Eastwood. Being part of the European rugby campaign was an incredible adventure that they now look forward to sharing with the world.They hope to release it at the start of the Top 14, and will aim to have both English and Spanish subtitles. Youll see the players up close on the morning of the match, conversations of players when relaxing, at training, and those light hearted moments that bring a team together.As the closing title on the trailer says, “The best adventures are lived from the inside”. When a release date is set, well be sure to give you all the info right here on Rugbydump.

Low Cost House / Vo Trong Nghia Architects

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Low Cost House / Vo Trong Nghia Architects Area:  40 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Low Cost House / Vo Trong Nghia ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLow Cost House / Vo Trong Nghia ArchitectsSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiHouses•Bien Hoa, Photographs:  Hiroyuki Oki+ 22 Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyText description provided by the architects. According to the statistics, the quantity of total housing area in Vietnam has been increased tenfold in the last decade. However, many families are still living in very small houses, some of which are less than 10 square meters. It is an important issue for Vietnam to provide houses for low-income classes. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe aim of this project is to propose a prototype house for low-income classes in the Mekong Delta area. By minimizing the functions of the house and using low cost materials throughout, the construction cost of a house can be brought down to as little as about 3200USD. Living expenses will also be reduced by using natural resources and energies. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiTwo prototypes were experimentally constructed in Dong Nai province, on the construction site of a Kindergarten project designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects. The first house, with a floor area of 22.5 square meters, was designed as a model home, the second, measuring 18 square meters, was designed as a site office for the Kindergarten, showing the flexibility of this prototype. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiOn the assumption that the bathroom and kitchen are placed outside and shared with several families, the house has minimum space for living, eating and sleeping. The plan was designed to be adjustable toward the longitudinal direction, allowing for future expansion of family members and functions. Its interior is a simple one-room space, articulated by curtains and differences in level of the floor. The floor rises higher in part, creating minimum furniture such as a desk. The other distinctive feature is the installation of folding beds, which allow the dwellers to sit on the floor during the day. These beds can also be transformed into sofas if required. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiIn order to reduce the construction cost, dwellers are encouraged to participate in the construction process. The structure of the prototype house is, therefore, a lightweight steel frame, which is easy to assemble without the use of machines, nor special techniques. Considering the recyclability of materials, wet joints are avoided as possible. The roof is supported by truss-beams composed of steel bars, which minimize steel material and give ideal pitch for waterproofing. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe envelope of the house is composed of a polycarbonate panel wall and corrugated FRP panel roof, and bamboo louvers are set inside of it. Both materials are available everywhere in Vietnam and are cheap, light and replaceable. Bamboo is rapid-growing and therefore the eco-friendly material. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiTranslucent envelope and bamboo louvers filter harsh direct sunshine in the tropical climate. The interior is filled with diffused light and reduces the need for artificial lighting, dramatically reducing electricity consumption. There is also a gap between the roof and the wall, which has the function of evacuating the hot air. As the whole space is naturally ventilated there is no need for an air conditioner to be installed in this house. A pent roof was designed to collect rain water for daily use in the dry season. Utilizing blessings of nature, dwellers can save great amount of energies, resources and therefore money.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessGuerrilla Green Sustainable Showdown CompetitionArticlesHelsinki Central Library Competition Entry / Tanni Lam, Johnny Chiu, Adrian LoArticles Share 2012 ArchDaily Photographs “COPY” Architects: VTN Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeVTN ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodBiên HòaBien HoaHousesPublished on December 18, 2012Cite: “Low Cost House / Vo Trong Nghia Architects” 18 Dec 2012.

Students resist imperialist speaker for MLK Week in Georgia

first_imgKennesaw State students in Georgia affirm Dr. M.L. King’s anti-war legacy on Jan. 16.Kennesaw, Ga.Outraged progressive students at Kennesaw State University protested on Jan. 16 because a vice president of military-industrial giant Lockheed Martin was the invited keynote speaker at KSU’s Dr. King Legacy Luncheon.Students held a die-in, followed by an educational event, “Honoring MLK’s Legacy of Peace,” to highlight Dr. King’s true legacy of anti-militarism. KSUnited, Young Democratic Socialists of America-KSU and Students for Justice in Palestine were organizers of the events.The students were protesting the university’s invitation to Roderick McLean, vice president and general manager for Lockheed Martin’s Air Mobility & Maritime Missions organization in Marietta, Ga. McLean previously served as Lockheed’s vice president and general manager for its Integrated Fighter Group organization.University officials on the way to the Legacy Luncheon at the Convocation Center were forced to step through the bodies of students holding signs exposing the damage to human life caused by Lockheed Martin and the U.S. military.Students taped signs to their chests with factual information: “3% of U.S. military spending could end world hunger,” “Lockheed Martin is the largest weapons contractor on Earth,” “Lockheed Martin supplied weapons for the conflicts in Yemen and Syria” and “16,706 civilian casualties,” which represents the number of civilians killed in Yemen by U.S. weapons made by Lockheed Martin.At the educational event, Dr. King’s “Beyond Vietnam” speech was read aloud. Flyers were distributed about the crimes committed by Lockheed Martin and on MLK’s anti-war philosophy. KSUnited handed out its demand that the administration return the organizing of MLK Week to Black students.Prior to the protest, the sponsoring groups released a statement signed by various organizations, including the International Action Center, which read in part:“It may seem honorable for KSU to recognize McLean’s achievements as a Black engineer who went to an HBCU, which represents Black success in an historically oppressive society. However, his standing as a keynote speaker at an MLK Legacy luncheon also represents KSU’s direct support of war, which opposes Dr. King’s message of nonviolence. King recognized the three major evils of society as racism, poverty and war. King stated: ‘The bombs in Vietnam explode at home; they destroy the hopes and possibilities for a decent America.’ MLK was an anti-racist, anti-capitalist and anti-war revolutionary, and to pick and choose aspects of his philosophies is a common tactic used by elitists to water down Dr. King’s legacy.” Previously, Martin Luther King Week at KSU had been an event open to the metro Atlanta public on weekends, which brought revolutionary speakers like Angela Davis and Marc Lamont Hill to campus. KSU’s African-American Student Alliance controlled who spoke. After Davis delivered the keynote address in 2015, pressure from local Republican Party forces was followed by the KSU administration seizing control of MLK Week in 2016.The week is now a private event with RSVP invitations, held during class and work hours on a weekday so that many students and outsiders cannot attend. Such privatization has led to people like military-industrialist McLean being invited to speak on MLK’s legacy.KSU students took a stand Jan. 16, forcing administrators and corporate outsiders to witness Martin Luther King’s true legacy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Purdue has Video Help for Scouting Palmer Amaranth

first_img Palmer amaranth identificationPalmer amaranth is popping up in new locations around Indiana this summer and for farmers scouting the weed, Purdue Extension weed scientists are offering a new video to identify it. Bill Johnson and Travis Legleiter are in a Cass County field with a heavy infestation of the weed and are able to show it at various growth stages.Johnson says this weed’s prevalence is expanding and that’s a concern.“It has become somewhat widespread, particularly across the northern one-third of the state, and we feel like we need to do all that we can to continue to raise awareness of this weed because it does present arguably the most serious agronomic weed challenge that we’ve had in Indiana in quite some time.”Palmer amaranth resembles other related weeds in the pigweed family so Legleiter says the first thing to look for when scouting is whether there are hairs on the plant.“Your red root, smooth pigweed that are common in the state are going to have hairs on them,” explains Legleiter in the video. “Palmer amaranth and common waterhemp will not have hairs on them so in these plants, if we look in at the growing points, we cannot find any hairs on the stems or on any of the leaf surface, indicating to us we either have Palmer amaranth or waterhemp.”Palmer amaranth grows rapidly and seeds quickly, threatening crop yields and bucking many herbicide control methods. It’s a growing problem and a growing concern for the entire industry because of that resistance.“This isn’t a problem that we’re going to face as individuals,” Johnson says. “As an industry it’s going to take an integrated approach from a number of different people in order to try to keep this thing at bay.”The purdue specialists would like to monitor the statewide progress of the weed so they encourage growers to send pictures of suspected Palmer amaranth. They are asking for multiple in-focus photos of the plant’s characteristics, as outlined in the video, to be emailed along with location information. The addresses are to [email protected] for Johnson [email protected] for Legleiter.Palmer amaranth has been confirmed in 17 counties statewide: LaPorte, Newton, Jasper, Pulaski, Cass, Benton, Porter, St. Joseph and White in the northwestern part of the state; Adams, Kosciusko, Huntington and Noble in other northern areas; Henry in east-central; Clay in the west; and Posey and Vanderburgh in the extreme southwest.Palmer amaranth updates are published frequently in Purdue Extension’s Pest and Crop Newsletter at SHARE Previous articleHow Much Was That Doggie in the Window?Next articleSlight Decline in Indiana and National Corn Condition Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Jul 21, 2013 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue has Video Help for Scouting Palmer Amaranth Facebook Twitter SHARE Purdue has Video Help for Scouting Palmer Amaranthlast_img read more

India: Harassment of reporters covering New Delhi farmers’ protests

first_imgSiddharth Varadarajan, The Wire news website’s founding editor, has meanwhile been accused in a judicial complaint of inciting hatred and endangering the nation’s integrity – charges that each carry a possible five-year prison sentence – in an article about the death of a demonstrator, Navreet Singh, during clashes on 26 January, probably as a result of police violence. The Wire’s journalist Ismat Ara learned today that she is accused in the same case. News Receive email alerts News March 3, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 IndiaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independence Judicial harassment February 1, 2021 – Updated on February 2, 2021 India: Harassment of reporters covering New Delhi farmers’ protests Organisation Dharmender Singh, a reporter for the news agency Online News India who was arrested at the same time as Punia, was released yesterday morning. As RSF reported at the time, serious intercommunal violence in New Delhi’s northeastern suburbs just under a year ago was accompanied by many press freedom violations that were abetted by police inaction. Sedition charges India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Help by sharing this information What with arrests, sedition charges and social media censorship, the Indian authorities have drastically stepped up their harassment of journalists covering the protests since they degenerated into violence on the evening of 26 January, celebrated as Republic Day in India. IndiaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independence Judicial harassment For covering the same clashes, six other journalists have been charged with sedition, which carries a possible life sentence. They include The Caravan’s executive editor, Vinod K. Jose and its editor, Anant Nath, the author and journalist Mrinal Pande, the editor of the National weekly newspaper Zafar Agha, the columnist Rajdeep Sardesai and the cartoonist Paresh Nath. Follow the news on India to go further Many Twitter accounts, including those of a number of journalists, were suspended this morning. What they had in common was the inclusion of hashtags referring to the protests. The news agency Asia News International (ANI) put the number of censored tweets and Twitter accounts at 250, and said the accounts were suspended at the home ministry’s behest. They included all of the accounts of the magazine The Caravan and its journalists. Most of the accounts had been restored by the evening. Mandeep Punia, a freelance journalist who writes for The Caravan, was arrested on the evening of 30 January, shortly after The Caravan published a story in which he reported that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party had sent activists to attack the protesting farmers. Initially accused of obstructing the police, and then of violence, he was placed in detention for an initial period of 14 days without being allowed to see a lawyer. India is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the withdrawal of all charges brought against at least ten journalists for covering the two-month-old protests by thousands of farmers on the outskirts of New Delhi against India’s new farm laws. Police try to stop hostile demonstrators as they clash with farmers who continue their protest against the central government’s recent agricultural reforms blocking a highway at the Delhi-Haryana state border in Singhu on January 29, 2021 (photo: Arun Kumar / AFP). “In the past few days, the Indian authorities have launched into a headlong assault on press freedom that puts the country on the road to an alarming authoritarianism,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We call on home minister Amit Shah to order Mandeep Punia’s release and the immediate withdrawal of all the absurd charges against reporters who have tried to cover the farmers’ protests.” April 27, 2021 Find out more News Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting February 23, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Government announces schizophrenic media law

first_img SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Syria February 3, 2021 Find out more Organisation Receive email alerts March 12, 2021 Find out more News SyriaMiddle East – North Africa to go further Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists center_img Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law President Bashar Al-Assad yesterday approved changes to Syria’s media legislation that are part of a series of planned reforms intended to end an ongoing wave of anti-government protests.The new law tries to give the impression that the media are being given more freedom. It opposes “any monopoly in the media sector,” scraps prison sentences for press offences and, in article 2, proclaims “freedom of expression” as a fundamental principle. It also declares an intention to facilitate access to information and prevent officials from denying access to certain kinds of data.Article 12 nonetheless calls for “responsible freedom of expression” and bans any reporting that incites violence or sectarian divisions, or threatens national unity. It also bans any report about the armed forces, including the army. It provides no definition of these terms, leaving them vague and imprecise and thereby allowing a great deal of scope for arbitrary interpretation.Regardless of their nature, how much credibility should be accorded to the new law’s provisions? None.The law calls for “respect for the fundamental freedoms contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in international conventions” but a harsh crackdown has been going on for the past six months, many journalists and free speech defenders have been jailed, and the number of citizens being killed grows by the day.Article 11’s statement that “any attack on a journalist will be treated as an attack on a Syrian government official” is ridiculous and schizophrenic, and borders on the absurd.The new law was announced the same day that the authorities prevented three leading opposition figures, Michel Kilo, Fayez Sara and Louay Hossein, from crossing the border into neighbouring Lebanon to attend a seminar organized by Al-Hurra TV. Officials told them it would be dangerous for them to continue their journey.In other words, the authorities are now claiming to be protecting the same journalists abroad that they have been jailing at home for years. As Hossein said in a comment on Facebook: “It would been preferable if they guaranteed our safety and the safety of others such as Ali Ferzat inside Syria, if they found a way to protect all Syrian citizens, both civilians and soldiers, who are killed every day within our borders, and not abroad. I honestly do not feel safe.”It should be noted that the authorities recently lifted the international travel bans that the security services had imposed on thousands of people.Ali Ferzat, the cartoonist who was abducted and tortured on 25 August, was transferred the next day to a private clinic to be operated on. He said he had received threatening phone calls warning him to stop criticizing the government. A demonstration in support of Ferzat was organized outside his home.Reporters Without Borders meanwhile regrets that the Saudi media group MBC has dropped the Arabic-language version of the US game show “You Deserve It” because of the overtly pro-Assad views of its star presenter, Georges Kordahi.

Seven is a lucky number

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Sharon Collier, head of retail training at high street food retailerSomerfield Group, explains how a seven-step process is helping to instilcontinuous improvements at Kwik SavePerformance Improvement Training Designed and delivered by: Boxwood Group, 1200 Century Way, Thorpe Park,Colton, Leeds LS15 8ZA Phone: 0113 251 5111Fax: 0113 251 5555 E-mail: [email protected]: www.boxwoodgroup.comWhen the Somerfield Group first employed Boxwood eight months ago, we werelooking for assistance in taking a step change in performance within our KwikSave business. After an intense period of consultation between the two organisations,the resultant solution, Energise, is already reaping dividends. A key goal of the project is sustainable business improvement throughequipping Kwik Save employees with a universal method that allows us to walkinto any business situation and rapidly home in on opportunities forperformance improvement. We are taught how to size-up these opportunities, gaincommitment to taking action and how to turn ideas into bottom-line results. The training is helping to instill a culture of continuous improvement aimedat benefiting all aspects of the business’s operations such as shrinkage,availability and promotions and marketing. It is already giving us some great results, but why did we decide to‘energise’ our business and how did we do it? With 681 stores and over 16,000staff, Kwik Save is recognised as the UK’s biggest discount supermarketoffering customers quality in big, well-known brands, choice and value in highstreet locations. But with the intense nature of competition within the retail sector, werealised that Kwik Save needed to become more cost effective and to be able toinitiate projects that would produce exceptional results in short timeframes. This is easier said than done, but with Boxwood’s proprietary training tool,Process 7, we have been given a simple, universal approach that allows us torapidly assess a business situation, produce and sell a plan of action anddeliver measurable results. Staff from our support centre in Bristol attend a three-day residentialcourse to be taught Process 7, alongside divisional executives for Kwik Save’sregions. Training is delivered there on a monthly basis and progressivelyinvolves more staff. Boxwood head of learning Anthony Greenfield explains the procedure: “Wewere very keen to get people off site into a new environment where they wouldwork with colleagues from other areas of the business. This in itself wascrucial in creating strong working relationships with a diverse group of peopleacross the whole business,” he says. Role playing “A highlight of the course are the role plays. One involves a simpleorange juice bottling line used to give participants first-hand experience ofobserving a real process and interviewing production line staff, who are playedby the instructors. It is this sort of intervention that enables people to takeimmediate action to improve performance in their area of the business onreturning to the workplace,” he says. All of us who have been on the training course agree that it is tough andchallenging. It encourages people to abandon preconceptions about what ispossible in business performance improvement, and inspires them to adopt apositive self-belief in achieving goals beyond normal expectations. “Participants learn that success comes from a combination of gaining adeep understanding of processes and cost drivers, and bringing people on boardby involving them in the process,” adds Greenfield. “Managing thehuman side of change and working at pace are also critical. Ultimately, it allabout one thing – results. Achieving tangible business improvement is whatdrives the process from start to finish.” The first three steps of Process 7 are all about discovery. Our people weretaught how to unearth opportunities for business performance improvement, andthen how to create a compelling argument for taking action to realise them. Achieving consensus Steps four and five taught us about consensus, which Boxwood defines aseffective communication of business performance opportunities and gainingcommitment to delivering them. This part of Process 7 is vital. Without being able to gain consensus, allpreceding work is worthless. We take time to ensure that our teams understandhow to deal with resistance to change and how to gain commitment to a futurevision. Once consensus has been achieved, Process 7 moves into steps six and seven,mobilisation. This is about taking action with a positive ‘can do’ attitude andthen measuring the results. We want to develop a culture that is completely results-focused.
