Pride of LionsEveryone obviously gets carried away with how many players have been selected from their respective nation, but it’s all irrelevant now. The 37 Lions are no longer Welsh, Scottish, Irish or English – they are ours. The players of the home nations are no longer foes, they are friends. As far as I’m concerned Owen Farrell may as well have been born in Aberystwyth, Rob Kearney is from just outside Neath and Stuart Hogg hails from the Gwendraeth Valley. We will cheer them all as if they are our own. Come on the Lions! NOT FOR FEATURED Familiar foes: Mike Phillips will be facing Australia again this summer – along with 14 other Wales playersBy Paul WilliamsRed hotFOR SOME of the 2013 Lions squad, pulling on a red rugby shirt will be a new experience. This won’t be the case for 15 of the players and three of the coaching staff – all of whom are involved with the Wales squad. To have such a large representation from Wales is a real achievement for Welsh rugby. For a country with a senior male player base of just 12,000, compared to England’s 131,399 and Ireland’s 25,616 (IRB database), Wales has seriously over delivered with regards to representation in the Lions squad. Whilst the number of players derived from Wales is striking, the positional coverage that the 15 players provide is also noteworthy. For example England have a clutch of players in the front row; a reflection of their Test team’s core strength. Wales, however, have representation all over the field. In fact, barring outside-half, Wales have a player in every position on the team sheet. If Justin Tipuric could turn his hand to playing ten, which he probably could such is his skill-set, then Warren Gatland could field an entirely Welsh starting XV in Australia. This Lions tour is a real feather in the cap for Welsh rugby – in fact, make that three feathers.Chip chop! Dan Lydiate has to prove fitnessDan’s the manDan Lydiate’s inclusion in the Lions squad will undoubtedly have raised some eyebrows in Ireland, Scotland and England. Particularly in the Robshaw household where the raising of eyebrows will only have been matched by the raising of blood pressure. However, it is easy to see why Lydiate has been selected. Prior to his injury, Lydiate was the finest defensive forward in the northern hemisphere and arguably the world. He single-handily dictates where the tackle line is and his ultra-low technique has redefined the standard of defence expected from a back-row forward. Lydiate’s inclusion is also vital to Gatland’s game plan. Gatland’s back rows don’t operate as three players – they are one unit. The Lions head coach will want to play a genuine six, with a genuine seven, with a genuine eight – not three ‘six-and-a-halves’. If Lydiate can attain match fitness, which he has time to do, Lydiate will be Gatland’s first-choice at six.Covering the cracks It may seem impossible for a Lions tour to have any negative connotations, such is the splendour of this historic event. However, having 15 Welsh players and three of the coaching staff selected to represent the Lions magnifies the divide between Test rugby in Wales and the regional game. This year Wales have retained their RBS 6 Nations title and have now dominated the Lions selection, yet the regional game lies in ruin. Whilst the world was awaiting the big reveal at 11am on Tuesday, many in Wales were also keeping an eye out for an announcement from the WRU, the Professional Game Board or Regional Rugby Wales. Sadly no announcement has yet been made. But it had better come soon because if the long-term regional game in Wales isn’t fixed sharpish, Wales will be lucky to have any British & Irish Lions in 2025.Leading man: Lions skipper Sam WarburtonCaptain marvelSam Warburton deserves enormous credit for becoming a Lion and, in particular, for being named as captain. Six months ago, according to some, all of this seemed impossible. Both supporters and the media were gunning for Warburton and questioning whether he should have even been playing for Wales, let alone be captain of the Lions. During the first few weekends of this year’s Six Nations, Warburton was receiving a level of criticism that could severely dent the confidence and impair the performance of a weaker character. But it didn’t. Warburton’s performances towards the end of the Six Nations were exemplary. His display against England, playing out of position at blindside flanker, was particularly impressive. Some may still question Warburton’s role as captain, but if the past six months are anything to go by, he will have the answer. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS

The new residential building Stadthaus Ballhausgasse fills a long-time void on this street in the historic city centre of Graz, Austria. The street facade interprets the design principals of the late 19th century using a contemporary language. The plasticity created by a game of light and shadow on the cornices, protruding windows and surrounding frames, as well as their arrangement, is achieved by the absorption and continuation of these elements in the new mirror-effect facade.Save this picture!© Paul OttA three-dimensional appearance, in the form of slightly inclined triangular surfaces, emerges and links the different cornice heights of the neighbouring buildings, thus making the reduced number of storeys, when compared to the late 19th century buildings, less clearly recognisable. The result is a differentiated interaction between facade and window surfaces on several levels, which reveal new details from different perspectives. As a representative view, reminiscent of the end of the 19th century, the street facade complex design and higher expenditure on materials contrasts with the unadorned courtyard facade.Save this picture!North ElevationThis void was the only vacant site in a continuous, homogenous and unbroken row of houses, thus unique in it´s context. Stadthaus Ballhausgasse explores a game of integration and mere imitation, using a new type of material in the form of mirror-finished, high-gloss polished stainless steel — one of the highest quality materials of our times, stainless steel has a subtle life of its own, as it is not as perfectly smooth and hard as glass. Via reflection, the facade depicts the opposite facades, which appear refracted as in a kaleidoscope due to the slightly different inclination. The new building has the paradoxical effect of having both a strong presence and absence via dematerialisation.Save this picture!© Paul OttProject gallerySee allShow lessSingle Family House in Molino de la Hoz / Mariano Molina IniestaSelected ProjectsSeminar: Achieve Energy Efficiency via Window Covering ItemsEventProject locationAddress:Ballhausgasse, 8010 Graz, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

To stay on track for data release in February 2019, the deadline for submitting the paper questionnaire is June 15, 2018. Farmers and ranchers who have not responded by June 15, 2018 still have until the end of July to complete the Census online through the secure website found on the cover of their Census form. Phone follow-up and personal interviews will also continue through July.“The Census of Agriculture provides the only source of comprehensive agricultural data for every state and county in the nation,” said USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue. “These data are used to make important local, state, and national decisions that will have a very real impact on farmers, ranchers, agricultural operations, and rural communities. I encourage producers to respond online or to send in their paper form today.”Greg Matli, Indiana State Statistician, reminds farmers and ranchers that the questionnaire needs to be completed by everyone who received a form, including landowners who lease land to producers, those involved in conservation programs, even those who may have received the Census and do not farm. Every response matters.“Our mission at NASS is to provide data in service to U.S. agriculture,” said NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer. “We extended the original Census deadline because many producers weren’t counted – and if they aren’t represented in these critical data, they risk being underserved in farm programs, disaster assistance, agricultural research, education, local policies, and business; this is why it is imperative that we hear from everyone.”Federal law, Title 7 USC 2204(g) Public Law 105-113, requires NASS to keep all information confidential, to use the data only for statistical purposes, and to only publish in aggregate form to prevent disclosing the identity of any individual producer or farm operation.For more information about the 2017 Census of Agriculture or to respond online, visit www.agcensus.usda.gov. Improved in 2017, the online form is faster and more convenient than ever. For questions about or assistance with filling out the Census, call toll-free (855) 270-2709.
