first_imgNOT FOR FEATURED So the first big test of Lancaster’s credentials is who he appoints as his coaching team. Rowntree is clearly going to stay put but can Andy Farrell be persuaded to leave Saracens and work full-time with England? And if that’s the forwards and defence sorted, who’s going to look after the attack? This is the void England need to fill. Wayne Smith is a prime contender if he can be persuaded to leave New Zealand and his role with the Chiefs, or will Lancaster look to English coaches, people like Mike Catt at London Irish or Clermont Auvergne’s Alex King?These decisions could define how successful a reign Lancaster enjoys. Getting the job full time may have seemed like a big hurdle, but the hard work is only just beginning for England’s new coach. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Head man: Stuart Lancaster has been appointed England coach on a permanent basisBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorI WENT to Stuart Lancaster’s Six Nations debrief last week. He had put together an impressive presentation, complete with PowerPoint display, but what really stood out were the words of Graham Rowntree, his assistant coach.Given that the England coaching appointment was still up in the air at the time, Rowntree could have been forgiven for looking after his own interests and making sure that he appeased whoever became his new boss. Instead he was effusive in his praise of Lancaster, talking about how the Yorkshireman had “dragged us out of the gutter” following England’s disappointing World Cup campaign and why the England camp during the Six Nations was the best environment he had ever been part of.It was a ringing endorsement for Lancaster to be given the England coaching role on a full-time basis and the RFU clearly agreed, ending months of speculation by appointing him. So is he the right man for the job?Happy day: Alex Corbisiero and Tom Croft enjoy England’s win in ParisWell, he’s clearly got the backing of his players and coaching staff, but most importantly he has created a strong culture in the squad. Culture might seem like a namby-pamby word to be used in a rugby context, but having everybody buying into ideas and standards of behaviour is key to developing a winning team – a few bad eggs can ruin an omelette.Lancaster has made it clear that off-field misdemeanours won’t be tolerated and has picked a squad that can produce winning performances right now and develop into World Cup contenders by 2015 – at least that’s what the RFU are hoping. For the first time in a long time planning for the future seems to be a priority for England, blooding young players now so they have plenty of experience under their belts come RWC 2015 instead of picking a side to win the next game. A key advantage Lancaster has compared to the outsiders bidding for the coaching job is his knowledge of players in England, knowledge he has gained from his years of working with England’s age-group and Saxons sides. In his briefing last week he put up a slide listing the strength in depth England had in various positions – some of the names wouldn’t have been recognised by many of the journalists in the room, let alone someone who hadn’t worked in the English system.There are still lingering doubts about Lancaster. Although his lack of experience at Test level worries other people, it isn’t a particular concern to me – Sir Clive Woodward didn’t have any when he took over but he presided over England’s most successful years while Jake White had only worked in age-grade rugby before guiding South Africa to 2007’s World Cup win. However, I don’t think everything is as rosy in the England garden as many believe after the Six Nations.A 2015 repeat? Martin Johnson lifts the 2003 World CupFour wins out of five was more than anyone expected, but those first two wins over Scotland and Italy could easily have gone the other way and simply having a strong defence won’t cut it against the world’s best. Yes, performances improved and winning in Paris is no easy feat, but there was no greater insight into England’s attacking game at the end of the championship than there was at the start.A lack of creativity is a key area that needs to be addressed – and quickly. A tour to South Africa is not a gentle affair and both the media and supporters will be as quick to criticise the coach as they have been to praise him thus far if England take a hammering by the Boks.last_img read more

A également été publiée aujourd’hui une proclamation que Donald Trump a signée peu après son investiture en tant que président le 20 janvier, déclarant ce jour : « journée nationale de dévouement patriotique ».Dans le mémorandum sur l’oléoduc de Dakota Access, Donald Trump déclare que l’Army Corps of Engineers va « examiner et approuver de façon accélérée, dans la mesure autorisée par la loi et selon qu’il conviendra, et dans les conditions qui seront nécessaires ou appropriées », la demande de l’entreprise visant à achever l’oléoduc. Les travaux restants feraient passer l’oléoduc sous le lac Oahe qui se trouve sur le fleuve Missouri juste au nord de la réserve de la Nation sioux de Standing Rock. Le franchissement du fleuve qui est proposé se trouve en amont des limites de la réserve de la tribu, et la tribu a par traité des droits sur l’eau, sur la pêche et sur la chasse dans le lac.L’Army Corps of Engineers a décidé le 4 décembre de suspendre les travaux, à la satisfaction des opposants, et de procéder à une évaluation de l’impact sur l’environnement, incluant l’exploration d’autres itinéraires.À ce moment là, l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry avait demandé que « l’évaluation comporte une large consultation des populations affectées et que désormais tout plan respecte les obligations du traité avec les Sioux de Standing Rock ».Toutefois, le décret de Donald Trump dit que l’Armée « verra la possibilité, dans la mesure autorisée par le loi et selon qu’il conviendra, d’annuler ou de modifier » sa décision du 4 décembre, de revenir à l’évaluation environnementale faite par l’Army Corps of Engineers en juillet 2016 et d’accorder la servitude pour le franchissement du lac.Article complet en anglais.

In 1945 around 20 million were displaced. In 2015 it was 60 million; today it is in excess of 75 million. From the poorest and most desperate come the cries.From the burning refugee camp the weeping of the helpless rises into the unhearing air. From the dusty road with the trails of belongings abandoned, children lost, women violated, men humiliated, bodies unburied, there are only the after-marks of horror beyond horror.From Dover in England to Queensland in Australia, the tides rise and fall on innumerable beaches and only the groan of the shingle testifies to the lives lost at sea.The causes of movement vary. Poverty, ambition, fear, war all play a large part. Some flee modern slavery. Some run from family or clan disorder. They flee for any and every reason. They may have illusions about their destination and their reasons for fleeing may be more or less understandable. Yet they flee.Read the full sermon here.

The “Casa Urbana” project is located on a standard plot 8.66 meters wide, in the Cordon neighborhood of Montevideo, Uruguay, oriented NW-SE. Originally there was a house from the 1930s occupying the entire surface available on the plot, developed on one level around two courtyards with skylights. The challenge consisted in designing “Casa Urbana” enterprises facilities at the low level, and a housing extension upstairs.Save this picture!© Elías Martínez OjedaThe refurbishment of the ground floor was conceived taking advantage of the existing structure and walls, opening a series of new skylights admitting diffuse daylight, and making use of the building depth, thus adapting it to its new role as clothing design and production workshops, without losing its original features.Save this picture!Section BBOpenings and pavement were in good condition, allowing manual recovery and restoration of the wood and leaving it bare to give the space warmth. Existing skylights were preserved and recovered and the service area was adapted to the new requirements.Save this picture!© Elías Martínez OjedaThe housing extension design was based on a short text in which the wishes of our customers were expressed. These had to do with the daily life and a clear recognition of their way of living and enjoying the private space. Thus we incorporated in our project the initial ideas: “… light … contact with the sunset and the stars…”, “…being outdoors in the company of Luna, Tango and our plants… they and us protected from the scorching summer sun”, “… an integrated breakfast area facing the living room allowing interaction…”, “…silence … and time for use of each room…”.Save this picture!Section AAThe house is on two levels on the existing roof structure of metal frames and light enclosures. The access leads to an integrated and flexible living area in close contact with an outside space provided by a shaded terrace.Save this picture!© Elías Martínez OjedaThe private area is developed on the top level and consists of two bedrooms, a bathroom and a multi-purpose circulation and study area. The connection to the street through an alternating opaque / transparent enclosure, preserves the privacy and at the same time links up with the integrated living areas. A more direct relationship with the outdoors is provided by openings onto the terrace, protected from direct contact with the urban environment.Project gallerySee allShow lessWOHA and Liminal Architecture to Design Performing Arts Building in TasmaniaArchitecture NewsAD Interviews: Joseph Grima / Chicago Architecture BiennialInterviews Share 2014 Area:  250 m² Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Elías Martínez Ojeda+ 28 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/775442/urban-house-fgm-arquitectos Clipboard CopyAbout this officeFGM ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOfficesRefurbishmentExtensionMontevideoUruguayPublished on October 19, 2015Cite: “Urban House / FGM Arquitectos ” 19 Oct 2015.

If all were swept into a perfect storm that threatens to tear apart everything you hold dear, what do you do?When it comes to divorce, custody, support, or property division, perhaps the only course of action is to get the overall finest lawyer you can find.Attorney Kayla Horacek, of the Pasadena Law Offices of Donald Schweitzer, is a certified family law specialist and is one you’d like to be on your team. Especially since she understands what people in your situation need.“When people come in, they’re in their worst place. It’s an opportunity to guide them and let them know that millions of people have done this, you can do this too,” Horacek explains. “You just have to know the right way to do it and have the people surrounding you to tell you what your rights are, and how to protect those rights.”As a family law attorney, Horacek knows the importance of being a people person.“You have to be good with people, you have to understand people,” she says, “I can’t predict what they’ll do, of course – but you have to be good with your intuition. I think you really need to understand human nature and the way things work.”While many attorneys are driven to get competitive quickly and focus on the legal issues and litigation process, they sometimes forget to serve their clients in an emotional sense.“Going through something so emotional and so personal, I think you need that extra element in your representation,” says Horacek.Horacek has experience as a behavioral technician, and this has helped her deal with her clients on an emotional level.“Especially with kids,” says Horacek, “I worked children with autism and so I understand parents who have special needs concerns. I understand kids that are a little different and require little bit more care than the typical child.”When it comes to negotiations and litigations, Horacek makes sure that her clients are not relegated to the sidelines.“I always prefer to allow the client to have as much control as possible. And really with mediation or with settlement conferences, the client has more control because they’re deciding their fate,” explains Horacek.The reason for this, Horacek says, is because “I think it’s important to empower them and have them remember that they can make the decisions and that’s their choice.”In short, Horacek makes sure that everything is a “team effort” and that clients are deeply involved every step of the way.“Unless they have unique circumstances or they have an incredibly demanding job, or they have something that would keep them from doing that,” she adds.One might describe Horacek’s approach as “holistic.”“It’s not just about litigating and running into court. It’s more about treating the whole person and understanding other needs other than legal needs,” says Horacek.To learn more about Kayla Horacek and the work she does, visit http://www.pasadenalawoffice.com/Attorney_Profiles/Kayla_Horacek.aspx for more information.

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / HUD Announces $1.5 Billion in Aid to Puerto Rico Previous: Aspen Grove Solutions Appoints Mike Jurkovic as VP Business Services Next: The Industry Pulse: Updates on Aspen Grove Solutions, Indisoft, and More … HUD Announces $1.5 Billion in Aid to Puerto Rico The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Thursday that it was awarding more than $1.5 billion in aid to help Puerto Rico recover from the damages wrought by Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year. HUD Deputy Secretary Pamela Hughes Patenaude joined Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló to make the announcement, marking Patenaude’s third trip to the island since the hurricanes hit.The funds are being provided through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant—Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program, and are targeted to “support long-term recovery of seriously damaged housing and local businesses in Puerto Rico,” according to HUD’s media statement.HUD Secretary Ben Carson said, “President Trump and the entire HUD family stand with our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico to help them recover from these devastating hurricanes. These recovery funds will help repair damaged homes and businesses. As local leaders, along with their citizens, develop their recovery plans, HUD will reduce regulatory barriers and remove any unnecessary roadblocks to speed long-term recovery.””On behalf of the many thousands of survivors here in Puerto Rico, I want to express our appreciation to the Administration and HUD for recognizing the tremendous needs that remain in so many of our neighborhoods,” said Governor Rosselló. “This grant will make a huge difference in repairing damaged homes and businesses and facilitating the social and economic recovery here in the island.”Congresswoman Jenniffer González-Colón said, “The $1.5 billion in CDBG-DR funding that we are announcing originates from the first Continuing Resolution (CR) that we advocated for and approved in Congress last September, out of a total of $7.4 billion that was assigned to HUD to assist in the aftermath of natural disasters. Today’s announcement is just another example of our ongoing efforts in Congress to allocate federal funding that helps mitigate the hurricanes’ disastrous effects and consequences.”In spite of federal aid, Puerto Rico has been struggling to recover from the brutal 2017 hurricane season. Last month the Orlando Weekly reported on how evacuees from Puerto Rico were accelerating Florida’s already difficult affordable housing crisis, with 300,000 Puerto Ricans having fled to Florida after the storms and only 18 affordable rental units available per 100 low-income families, according to a National Low Income Housing Coalition study.Puerto Rico is also headed for a likely foreclosure epidemic, as reported in December by the New York Times. That piece reported that about one-third of the Puerto Rico’s 425,000 homeowners were behind on their mortgage payments. Tens of thousands had not made payments for months as 2017 ended, and about 90,000 borrowers became delinquent as a consequence of Hurricane Maria, the Times report said, quoting reports from data firm Black Knight Inc.HUD’s newly announced grant will undoubtedly make a huge impact on Puerto Rico’s recovery efforts. Time will tell whether more help will be needed.
