England win in Melbourne to take first ever series victory in Australia

first_imgSunday Jun 19, 2016 England win in Melbourne to take first ever series victory in Australia England’s comprehensive 23-7 victory over the Wallabies in Melbourne sealed their first ever series win in Australia. It was built on an incredible defensive performance after the Wallabies had dominated possession but couldn’t break an impenetrable English wall.The match was a coming of age for Chris Robshaw, who wore the England jersey for the 50th time and along with James Haskell and Billy Vunipola, got the better of the Wallaby loose trio.The Melbourne turf was fairly disgraceful as it broke up at every scrum, leading to an official statement today from the ARU. They have said that while their are internationals scheduled for AAMI Stadium in 2017, they will have to pass stringent tests for them to go ahead.The Wallabies had an incredible 74% but England’s tacklers never backed off, as Owen Farrell punished the home side with the boot at every opportunity. He then scored a try of his own late in the game, adding to skipper Dylan Hartley’s 19th minute pushover score.Wallabies captain Stephen Moore said post match that they simply need to improve.“England deserved to win both Tests and we just need to get better. They defended really well, we had a lot of ball down their end of the field and couldn’t get it over the line at crucial times, we’ll look at that and improve but they defended really well.  “I’m pretty gutted about it at the moment, we’ll own the performance and get better.”The series is wrapped up but the third and final Test will go ahead in Sydney next Saturday.NOTE: If the video doesn’t work in your country, you can view it on page twoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

On a site in the higher part of a residential zone in the environs of Murcia is located the singular, crossed house with views to the adjacent mountains, the “Sierra de la Pila” and “Valle del Ricote”. From the ambiguity, being on a site of a future densely built-up area and at the same time enjoying today’s unsurpassable views, was born the idea of the project: to orientate the lower level of the house to the garden’s intimacy and grant to the user at the superior level the delight of its views considering future edification and the influence of solar radiation.Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizThis conceptual setup is materialized by a geometrical operation, the rotation of two elements, as if it were two construction toy blocks that are stacked and handled easily. The stacked oblong volumes, of a length of 20m and a depth of about 5m, are rotated by 35 degrees so that the extremes orientate to the most favored views and generate at the same time cantilevers of about 10m length.Save this picture!Floor PlanThese cantilevers, together with the rotation between both volumes, provide the necessary sun protection of the facade and pool residence.Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizThe expressive power of this formal configuration, very elementary in principle, is further enhanced by a subtle distinction between the two volumes: the edges are rounded according to the orientation of the main openings of each level reinforcing this way the autonomous nature of the volumes. Thus, on the ground floor rounded transversal edges frame the big opening to the southeast, upstairs such treatment is applied to the longitudinal edges framing the views of the rooms at each end of the volume. This also apparently reduces the contact surface between the two stacked volumes and reinforces the oblong nature of their geometrical form.Save this picture!SectionThe contact to the ground is solved using again the same mechanism of rotation. This time a third, buried volume corresponding to the pool deck rotates with respect to the two volumes of the house to resolve the transition between garden ground and dwelling.Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizThe surface’s treatment of the concrete volumes provides a contrast between the outside with a rough finish created by a shuttering of sand blasted pine strips and an interior of smooth finishes.Project gallerySee allShow lessMaya Lin and Shepley Bulfinch to Redesign Smith College’s Neilson LibraryArchitecture NewsFAT And Crimson’s ‘A Clockwork Jerusalem’ To Be Exhibited In LondonArchitecture News Share “COPY” 2013 “COPY” Save this picture!© David Frutos Ruiz+ 8 Share Spain 2013 CopyAbout this officeClavel ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa AlcaynaHousesSpainPublished on April 10, 2015Cite: “Crossed House / Clavel Arquitectos” 10 Apr 2015.

Charity concern grows over possible postal dispute

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Individual giving Ireland The Irish Charities Postal Users’ Forum has come out against the threatened postal dispute between the Communications Workers Union and An Post. The Forum is made up of charities that are large users of the postal system. A spokesman for a major social welfare charity stressed that the pre-Christmas period is vitally important for fundraising and they had planned a 200,000 mailing. November and December are critical months for us, he said. Any disruption in the postal system would have a devastating impact on our annual fundraising campaigns that have been planned for six months. We have already spent considerable money on stationary, printing and mailing lists but it could be wasted if a strike goes ahead. Even with a threat of strike action donors become fearful of putting donations in the post and many donors do not have access to electronic transfers, he said.

At least five charities in Ireland are planning to meet the 21st November postaim deadline which gives big discounts for bulk mailings. In recent days the rhetoric by the Communications Workers Union has grown more militant, with the likelihood that there will be major disruption over the next month. The fear is that even if the strike does not extend to late November there will be a knock-on effect on deliveries that might mean Christmas mailings will arrive too close to maximize responses. The usual pattern is for up to 75% of replies to arrive in the first 2-3 weeks of a mailing. A spokesman at An Post said that it was more than likely there would be a strike but it was impossible to assess how long it would be and how disruptive it would be to deliveries. He accepted that this made it very difficult for charities to make decisions about whether to go ahead with their mailings. Advertisementlast_img read more

Coronavirus live updates: China lifts lockdown in Wuhan where global pandemic began

first_imgjarun011/iStock(NEW YORK) — A global pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed at least 12,911 people in the United States. The United States is among the worst affected countries, with nearly 400,000 people diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Worldwide, more than 1.4 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and over 82,000 of them have died since the virus emerged in China in December. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks. Italy has, by far, the world’s highest death toll — over 17,100. Here’s how the news is developing Wednesday. All times Eastern:7:18 a.m.: US may investigate WHO’s handling of pandemic, official saysDr. Deborah Birx, the White House’s coronavirus response coordinator, indicated Wednesday that the United States would investigate the World Health Organization’s handling of the pandemic before deciding whether to withhold its funding to the United Nations’ health agency. “We’ve done that before with previous outbreaks and previous issues that have occurred at WHO,” Birx told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview on Good Morning America.During a press briefing Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump blamed the WHO for getting “every aspect” of the novel coronavirus pandemic wrong and threatened to freeze American funding.The Geneva-based international body started sounding the alarm over the outbreak in China in mid-January and then designated it a global health emergency on Jan. 30. On March 11, the WHO declared the outbreak a pandemic after the virus had spread to every continent except Antartica. “In the history of the United States and the World Health Organization, we have had times when we’ve done really in-depth analysis of what has happened. When the president said he was holding funds, he didn’t say he was restricting and keeping funds permanently away, but instead said, let’s investigate what happened,” Birx said. “I think that the president wants to complete an investigation of what happened during this current outbreak.” “Believe me, they already have their continuation funds from last year,” she added. “So this is a year-by-year commitment to the WHO, this is our required commitment. There’s also voluntary commitments that we’ve made to the WHO through history, including over the last couple of years for HIV, malaria, TB, so a whole series of diseases.” The United States is, by far, the single largest financial contributor to the WHO.Birx said the White House coronavirus task force is currently concerned about the metro areas of Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. potentially becoming the next hotspots of the country’s outbreak. “All of our previous areas seem to be steady at least,” she added. ” And then certainly we’re looking very carefully at California and Washington [state] to really understand how they’ve been able as a community of Americans to mitigate so well.” Birx said they hope to roll out an antibody test “within the next 10 or 14 days” that can detect how many Americans have already had the virus but were asymptomatic. “This makes a very big difference in really understanding who can go back to work and how they can go back to work,” she said. “So all of those pieces need to come together over the next couple of weeks.”3 a.m.: China lifts lockdown in city where pandemic beganChinese authorities have lifted a months-long lockdown on Wuhan, the city where the coronavirus pandemic began.The very first cases of the novel coronavirus were detected in Wuhan back in December. The city of 11 million people went on lockdown on Jan. 23 in an effort to control the spread of the virus, the first in the world to do so.The bulk of the Chinese mainland’s nearly 82,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and over 3,300 deaths have been reported in Wuhan, the capital of central Hubei province. However, the strict travel restrictions in the city have been gradually eased in recent weeks as the number of new infections continuously declined.The final restrictions on outbound travel were lifted Wednesday. Thousands of people streamed out of the city via car, train and plane.China’s National Health Commission on Wednesday reported no new cases in Wuhan nor the greater Hubei province, though questions have been raised over the accuracy of China’s figures.  Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Disinfectant to be withdrawn

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Disinfectant to be withdrawnOn 1 Mar 2002 in Personnel Today A disinfectant blamed for causing skin problems and asthma among NHS workersis being withdrawn from the UK market from 1 May. Cidex, the brand name for the disinfectant glutaraldehyde, is widely usedwithin NHS operating theatres to kill viruses on certain surgical instruments. But health workers’ union Unison and the HSE have been worried about itseffect on workers. It can be harmful if inhaled or swallowed, can irritate theeyes and respiratory tract and can cause damage to the skin and eyes. The manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, has stressed the product is safeand that it is only being withdrawn so it can be replaced by an updatedversion. In January, the HSE issued guidance on how much glutaraldehyde workersshould be exposed to, including what employers should do to protect the healthof their staff. It followed earlier guidance published in 1999. Unison welcomed the news of its withdrawal. Jon Richards, national healthand safety officer, said: “There is no ‘safe’ level of exposure and no placefor it in hospitals today. It is well known that it can irritate the skin,eyes, throat and lungs. I am delighted to hear that it will be withdrawn fromhospitals.” J&J Medical, the company that manufactures the product in the UK, saidCidex had been used “safely and effectively” in hospitals for morethan 30 years. “As with all sterilants and disinfectants, Cidex must be handled withcare and certain precautions against exposure observed,” it added. The transition to the new product, called Cidex OPA, would take placegradually during the year. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Engineers join forces to fight skills shortage

first_img Previous Article Next Article Two major engineering bodies have joined forces to tackle the skills crisisin the industry. The Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) and EMTA,formerly the NTO for engineering manufacture, last month signed a memorandum ofunderstanding, sealing their commitment to work in partnership to boost skillslevels. The main aim is to pave the way for advanced modern apprentices to obtainrecognition through the Engineering and Technology Board, the industry’sprofessional registration body. “We’re working with EMTA to ensure the right standards are in place incompany apprenticeship schemes so the people on them are eligible forregistration as engineering technicians or, perhaps through additional study orexperience at work, as incorporated engineers,” said John Beale, head ofpublications and promotions at the IIE. The partnership will help young people who achieve work-based qualificationsovercome barriers to gaining professional recognition, which was previouslyrestricted to those who followed the academic route. It is part of a bid toincrease the number of engineers professionally qualified at the intermediatelevels, relative to those attaining the highest status of chartered engineer. “In the past the emphasis has been on chartered engineers but we needto redress the balance,” said Beale. “More and more employers arecoming to realise that what they want are people with the right skills set andknowledge base who are able to add immediate value to their business. That’swhy we’re working with EMTA and employers to make sure that happens.” EMTA chief executive, Dr Michael Sanderson, explained: “The area ofskills where our companies need most help is at the intermediate level, and theIIE looks after that group. What we’re looking to do is treat NVQ level 3 aspart of the evidence towards membership of the institution. Obviously we’ll doother co-operative things too.” Joint initiatives will seek to build integrated frameworks for engineeringand technology qualifications, encourage employer-led development schemes andrespond effectively to emerging skills issues. Another area will be to develop and promote means for continuingprofessional development (CPD). EMTA, which is on course to become the SectorSkills Council for technology, engineering and science, runs a number oflearndirect open learning centres. It is now seeking to present trainingmaterial it produced for BBC Learning Zone programmes in a user-friendly formaton the web. “We’re working with Redbus, which has done a lot of work withdentists on CPD, to produce mini courses on-line where learners can be assessedand get a certificate,” said Sanderson. “I think that should be ofgreat interest to the IIE and I shall be presenting it to them to see if we canwork together in that area as well.” By Elaine Essery Comments are closed.

Melting of ice shelves and the mass balance of Antarctica

first_imgWe calculate the present ice budget for Antarctica from measurements of accumulation minus iceberg calving, run-off and in situ melting beneath the floating ice shelves. The resulting negative mass balance of 469 Gt year−1 differs substantially from other recent estimates but some components are subject to high temporal variability and budget uncertainties of 20–50%. Annual accumulation from an earlier review is adjusted to include the Antarctic Peninsula for a total of 2144 Gt year−1. An iceberg production rate of 2016 Gt year−1 is obtained from the volume of large icebergs calculated from satellite images since 1978, and from the results of an international iceberg census project. Ice-shelf melting of 544 Gt year−1 is derived from physical and geochemical observations of meltwater outflow, glaciological field studies and modeling of the sub-ice ocean circulation. The highest melt rates occur near ice fronts and deep within sub-ice cavities. Run-off from the ice-sheet surface and from beneath the grounded ice is taken to be 53 Gt year−1. Less than half of the negative mass balance need come from the grounded ice to account for the unattributed 0.45 mm year−1 in the IPCC “best estimate” of the recent global sea-level rise.last_img read more
