Tom Court shown straight red card for tip tackle on Devin Toner

first_imgFriday May 2, 2014 Tom Court shown straight red card for tip tackle on Devin Toner Ulster prop Tom Court was shown a straight red card in tonight’s RaboDirect PRO12 match between Ulster and Leinster at Ravenhill. Court was part of a double tackle on 6ft11 Ireland lock Toner, and appeared to drive him to the ground as Toner twisted.Prop Court and hooker Rob Herring made the tackle and lifted Toner before – as we’ve seen on previous occasions – the tackled player turned, and in the process the tackle outcome changed. That’s the way it looked anyway, and unfortunately he landed face flat in the turf.Former Ireland international Paul Wallace tweeted about his frustration with the decision.“He’s gone above the horizontal, and he’s landed on his neck. I’ve got no option but a red card,” explained referee Luke Pearce, much to Ulster captain Johan Muller’s annoyance.“You are joking,” could be heard twice, as Court seemed to say something like “Please Sir… I let him go in the air,” trying to indicate that there was no malice involved.Malicious or not, Toner landed terribly and with the laws the way they are – to protect players in the tackle – the referee was correct in saying that he had no option but to give a red card.UPDATE: Leinster won the match 22-20 after a tight finish. Court tweeted the following to Toner:In another controversial incident, Rob Kearney was yellow carded for a high tackle on Paddy Jackson as the Ulster flyhalf sprinted in for a try. You can see that on page two off this post. UPDATE: Court has been suspended for 2 weeks. You can read the full press release hereRob Kearney is yellow carded after a desperate tackle in the corner nearly took Paddy Jackson’s head off. Jackson managed to stay in and scored the try anyway.The disciplinary hearing press release reads as follows:Tom Court, the Ulster prop forward, appeared today (Thursday) before an independent PRO12 Disciplinary Committee in Neath, South Wales, having been dismissed with a red card in the RaboDirect PRO12 match between Ulster and Leinster at Ravenhill on Friday 2 May 2014.The Disciplinary Committee, chaired by Simon Thomas, alongside Terry Vaux and Robert Williams (all from Wales), viewed the footage of the incident and listened to representations by, and on behalf of, the player via video-link.The committee decided that the offence, a dangerous “lifting” tackle contrary to Law 10.4(j), was at the low end of the IRB’s scale of sanctions for this type of offence and, in imposing a two-week suspension, they applied a deterrent factor of an additional week but then reduced the sanction by three weeks, to reflect, among other factors, the player’s acceptance of the red card and his previous excellent disciplinary record.Tom Court is therefore suspended until midnight on Sunday 18 May and has the right of appeal.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

McKenzie and Pulu combine with brilliant cross kick and catch combo

first_imgFriday Mar 30, 2018 McKenzie and Pulu combine with brilliant cross kick and catch combo The Chiefs beat the Highlanders 27-22 in a hard-fought Round 7 Super Rugby contest in Hamilton on Friday. Both sides scored three tries each, but this one, finished by Solomona Alaimolo, was arguably the pick of bunch. The try featured a sublime Damian McKenzie cross-kick with the outside of his foot, followed by Toni Pulu’s perfectly timed leap to catch and release inside for Alaimolo, who dived in for the try. While it wasn’t all plain sailing from McKenzie, he yet again showed that he will always have a crack, helping the Chiefs to their fourth win of the campaign. They are now second in the New Zealand conference behind the Hurricanes, who later thumped the Melbourne Rebels 50-19. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

We renovated this entire brownstone, completed in 2007 for NYC pillar and father of three daughters, Ricky Kenig, the owner and personality behind the Ricky’s NYC stores. Ricky was interested in creating a modern heaven for his family, in a beautiful Brooklyn brownstone: a place that offered private retreat spaces as well as open mixing spaces to spend time together. Save this picture!The program of spaces was organized by floor. The basement was finished to become a casual family den-type room with a pool table and couches, etc. The ground floor level was opened up to become a loft-like living room and kitchen with an exterior wood deck floating outside, over the backyard. The second floor became the girls’ floor with bedrooms, a study, kid-lounge and bath. Bachelor retreat was the idea of the third and top floor, with a home office, bedroom and bath. Save this picture!Tying the home together, the stair acts as a spine from basement to third floor. We were interested in allowing this to read as a distinct element and so structured it to rise free of the adjacent walls. A new skylight was inserted into the roof, above the stair, accentuating the vertical rise and bringing natural light down into the home. The wall behind the stair was finished with sheets of blackened steel that run continuously from the parlor level to the roof. Display elements can be easily affixed to the wall using magnets. By creating an entirely flexible “canvas of metal” we offered a space with infinite possibilities for visuals. The flexibility of the magnet wall fosters the creation of zones organically, as people affix items of interest to them at their own floor-alternately the entire stair could be rigorously curated. We felt that the flexibility of the display wall mechanism was appropriate particularly for a family so rooted in a retail tradition. Save this picture!In the kitchen, the color palette is focused on black and silver. Countertops are Absolute Black granite with a laminate on upper cabinets and island that features an abstract aluminum pattern on a black background. Mid level cabinets and security doors are aluminum sheet, with a custom pattern of circles and ovals that creates an optical illusion that the sheet is bowed out when in fact it is entirely flat. The pattern was designed by Slade Architecture and water jet cut into the panel. Save this picture!The girls’ floor offers real flexibility as the rooms can be opened or closed with large sliding doors. In the open configuration, the entire floor is open-like a loft space. By closing the doors, the girls can create a traditional closed bedroom space. The bathroom on this floor has a playful tile combination that mixes graphic tiles of a grass lawn with green glass cobbletones tiles. Save this picture!At the top floor, we designed a retreat for Ricky. There is a home office and extensive closet/dressing area as well as bedroom and bathroom. An extensive collection of rare shoes is featured prominently immediately adjacent to the stair entry on the floor, below the skylight. We felt that it was such a committed interest that the collection should receive a preferential place in this private zone. The “shoe wall” as we called it became an important personal expression as well as a unique decorative element.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow less10th National Design Awards Winners AnnouncedArticlesSofia’s New City Center to be designed by Dominique PerraultArticles Sharelast_img read more

Wanka House is a vacation home thought of as a place where things happen and as a playful space where family and friends meet to relax… this does not mean, however, to be quiet. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe house, which is set a hundred meters from the sea in Cariló – a seaside town 400 km from Buenos Aires city-, is nourished and inspired by the landscape. This is why the brief took full advantage of the views of the surroundings and the optimal sunlight where the plot is situated.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaTowards the rear façade we encounter the sea and at front, the forest. A placid place to enjoy in summer -when temperatures reach 40°C- as well as in the harsh winter, when temperatures go as low as -6°C. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe house is set in the rear section of the plot so that it is close to the beach. At the same time, the front generates spaces to enjoy in the open air. The original levels of the plot and the distance to the street favor this, as the inhabitants can engage in different activities without been seen by passersby from the street. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe floor where the service area and playroom are placed was partially buried, without making huge movements of sand –a main element of the site’s topography. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe living room and dining room floor opens in three faces in order to incorporate the forest to the inside; thus, the boundary between the interior and exterior melts away. The kitchen closes to the south. The barbecue area, as a natural extension of the inside, is directly related to the swimming pool. Towards the rear façade, the dining room floor opens to an intimate terrace and below it, in the natural terrain level, a fire pit and grill becomes the perfect meeting place to be next to the fire. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaA white box ‘flying’ towards the front contains the bedrooms, that is, the sleeping area. Similar to a periscope, the box is protruded -and thus, appears to float out from the main structure- covering the intimate terrace of the dining room and to the front, overhanging the grill area, the box floats over everyone and everything, until it rests on a column that deflects the structural load of the plot before disappearing on a water mirror. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe top level is fully dedicated to leisure. Thought of as a place to carry out both indoor and outdoor activities, the 360° look-out allows for sights of the sea to the east, vistas of the forest to the west, and outlines of a neighboring city skyline towards the north. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaArchitecture generates sensations not only by appreciating what has been built but also by interacting with those built spaces. At Wanka House, the architects sought to generate different situations by strolling around a path. A ramp drives us to the entrance and, as we walk along it, we acknowledge and appreciate the surroundings: the garden, the forest, the swimming pool, the ponds, the sound of the water, the sunshine on the water and its reflection on the concrete-, always walking around a column. As we get closer, the value of the column is made evident as we become aware of its imposing scale.  By the time we reach the front door, the height is reduced and we feel comfortable, we are eager to go inside. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe architects set out the experience of getting into the house through a defined circumnavigation of the structure while we, little by little, incorporate the forest, the water, the sea breeze, and start enjoying as we leave our routine and the chaotic stress of living in big cities behind. We become aware of the place where we are and start our vacations even before entering home.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessLandmark Miami DawnTown Ideas CompetitionArticlesThe Lodge on the Lake Design Ideas CompetitionArticles Share Houses Wanka House / Galera Estudio Save this picture!© Diego Medina+ 43 Share CopyAbout this officeEstudio GaleraOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCarilóArgentinaPublished on February 07, 2013Cite: “Wanka House / Galera Estudio” [Casa Wanka / Galera Estudio] 07 Feb 2013.

Photo by Benton McDonaldSome TCU students are trying to change the way the campus at large views and interacts with students of color.At the first meeting of the TCU Justice Coalition, students of color talked about feeling isolated and stereotyped by white students and faculty.First-year student Christian Means said thought about transferring during his first week of classes because of the microaggressions directed toward him. He said some white students seemed to avoid him on the sidewalks of campus. While others put their heads down when he tried to greet them during his shifts as a desk assistant in Clark Hall.Means was among 40 students who talked about pushing to make the campus more inclusive.“Something that we’ve noticed as students of color on this campus is that a lot of students of color feel the same way that TCU fosters this environment that doesn’t always include students of color,” said Nguyen. Photo by Benton McDonaldCo-founder and senior Michelle Nguyen said the coalition wants students of color to feel valued enough to speak up for the marginalization that they feel like going to TCU creates. Nguyen and fellow senior Hope Bentley began the coalition last semester as part of their senior project for the Chancellor’s Leadership Program. Their goals include an effort to expand TCU’s core curriculum to include classes that meet a standard for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The coalition plans to start a petition to present to the Faculty Senate that supports the requirement and classes on diversity and inclusion. First-year student Mikea Jackson spoke about the microagression she felt directed at her in her dance class. Photo by Benton McDonaldThe coalition’s meetings serve as forums for minority and white students to speak about their experiences on campus, talk about the issues they face and begin to work on the change they all want to see. “Our main things is that we don’t want to spit out ideas and just have people follow us,” said Nguyen. “We want people to be able to speak about their own experiences and come up with ideas themselves.”Junior Cameron Law said some minority students don’t feel as if their culture is being properly recognized or appreciated on campus. Law noted the two monuments in the Greek village for the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) are surrounded by the houses of those who stereotype and exclude the members of these councils.
