Felipe Contepomi Penalty blown back over!

first_imgSaturday Mar 1, 2008 Felipe Contepomi Penalty blown back over! The Friday night Magners League fixture between Leinster and Connacht will always be remembered for the 20th minute penalty kick from Argentinian flyhalf Felipe Contepomi. Contepomi was on target with a 18-metre penalty, but the wind was so strong it blew the kick back out through the posts and had referee George Clancy reaching for his rulebook before he confirmed the score. Truly one of the most bizarre things you’ll ever seen in a rugby field.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The History of Rugby – Part 13

first_imgWednesday Jul 13, 2011 The History of Rugby – Part 13 It’s been a few months since posting an episode of the History of Rugby documentary, so while there’s a bit of a quiet period after Super Rugby and before everything else, it’s as good a time as any to continue with it. As you know by now, Super Rugby came to an end this past weekend as the Reds beat the Crusaders in a brilliant final in Brisbane. There’s no let up for some of the guys that took part though, as this weekend the Wallabies will be facing the might of Samoa, fresh from their participation in the IRB Pacific Nations Cup. Elsewhere, the fiercely competitive Currie Cup kicks off in South Africa, while in New Zealand their entertaining domestic competition, the ITM Cup, gets under way tomorrow. So while many of you up north might feel like the rugby season is over, it’s anything but, and we’ll continue to cover the best bits here on RD. For now though, the History of Rugby documentary continues from where it left off , as we get to see the Springboks emerge from the wilderness in in the early nineties. We then get a run-down of England successes through that time period, leading up to the 1994 Five Nations, which Wales won. The following year France scored a brilliant try against England in the Championship, but weren’t successful overall. The 1995 Rugby World Cup was a famous win for the Springboks in their first ever tournament, with Nelson Mandela, Kitch Christie, and Francois Pienaar doing incredible things for the country, both on and off the field. Professionalism followed the tournament, and by the 1999 Rugby World Cup, rugby was a slightly different game. Jonah Lomu, who was years ahead of the sport, made massive impacts in both 95 and 99, particularly against England. From this point in the documentary, things do become quite England-centric, so if you’re not a fan, you’ll need to take it with a pinch of salt as obviously it’s England made, so they become the predominant focus. It’s still very interesting though, and a good look back at what happened all those years back. Enjoy.

The name of house is Yoojeongheon. Nearing the completion of the construction, the owner gave its name and described the meaning to me as, ‘wind stays, sunshine caresses’.This building is located in an old village on the hill that looks out to the North Port of Jeju Island and is built by an old resident of the village. He is a geologist and a teacher, and of course, he has scientific mind.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkLike many, I have intolerance towards the term ‘science’. I distanced myself from its field and it seemed to have the same attitude towards me.  So my approach to look at and to interpret things is with sensibility. I, then translate the collective senses onto 2-dimensional representation and finally build it up with spatial narratives onto a physical ground.Save this picture!SketchHowever, this time, the resident-to-be-geologist added more stories onto my pile. While designing the house I heard the history of the earth, a story about the life of a typhoon and the movement of the sun; and most of the stories were about the special location, which the house was later built to look out to:  the Jeju Island.The house sits on a hill that is laid out a step back from the forefront of the beach. I was told, until not very long ago, the sea level was up to the bottom of the hill and underneath the hill itself was the birthplace of the legendary female merchant Mandeok Kim.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkWhen I first visited the site, an old apartment building was standing with its back turned around and blocking the view out to the sea. Only some fragment of the ocean could barely be seen pass its side. But as we began, an unexpected restorative project of Kim’s birthplace took place and the apartment disappeared during this time. Without being aware of its disappearance, I flew from Seoul to Jeju and got on a taxi to the site. As I arrived, I felt something different was grabbing a hold of me that I had to stop to take a look at the view. However still, I only felt that something about the scenery had changed and did not quite register the change to be the lack of a mass that used to block the view.   Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkOnly except for the time during his college years, the geologist lived in the same neighborhood for over 50 years. Although his old house was long gone, he tended the lot by cleaning up, decorating with pebbles and laying the ground with grass. On the way back from work, he would stop by to sit down next to the lot to read or to gaze at the sunset to think about a new house that would once be built in the location.The lot was not large. It was perhaps about 130 sq meters. Plus, despite its high ground, the view from the location was not very impressive due to the sounding houses barricading all four horizons of the lot.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkI thought of a house that where the sunlight caresses though and the wind comes in to stay a while. The idea took its form as to vacate the center and to take away the portions of the ground level to provide openings of horizontal access. The design also included a strong outer membrane to make it withhold the powerful salty wind from the ocean and, carried by the same wind, the heavy rainfall that strikes horizontally. Naturally all the processes passed by my ideas and the scientific verification of the owner. The house was built with concrete and the same concrete was used to complete the finishing surface. Here, the focus was not, so to speak, on the ‘exposed concrete’ but on the way to ‘expose the concrete. To apply concrete as a finishing product properly, more effort is put on fabricating the mold to make the surface of the concrete more aesthetically pleasing, which generally raises the overall cost. Contrarily, the surface of concrete used for constructional purpose, in other words, ‘what goes inside’, is left rough because it will eventually be covered with other finishes.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkFor the finishing the constructional concrete mold was used. The first plan was to cover up the surface later with some other material. But truth to be told, I do prefer the rough texture of the construction finish over the smooth finish. Plus, Jeju is native to the Porous Basalt (Hyun-mu-am) which offers its own rough surface. Perhaps because of this, the decision ended up favoring having the construction finish.Entering the square courtyard, the sky opens up; then follow the porch, Daechuhng (an outer platform) and Sa-rang (a reception room) arrayed towards the ocean. The East and the West are left open for the wind to run through the courtyard. The membrane is embracing the functional spaces such as the furnace room, and the parking lot. The North-west corner of the house yields the best view of the house, which could be seen while climbing up the staircase leading the way from the porch to the next level. Here, I thought, it would be nice to have this staircase to become a place where one could sit down to ponder upon the great view to be found.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkThe second floor was designed as a living space consisted of two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a toilet. These rooms were distributed into the North and the West sides of the building and were connected by two bridges. The two bridges were made with different widths to allow multiple perspectives while walking in and out through the space.  Lastly, one can climb a ladder to access the rooftop which has one small room and a terrace with a closed top. However consequently to the disappearance of the apartment building and the horizon was made possible to be viewed from the second floor, the rooftop was the designed to be the designated spot to have the best view of the surrounding area. Here, standing on the top of the hill, he looks forward to spend the rest of his life alongside the mothering ocean and his family.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkProject gallerySee allShow lessTaiyokogyo / Takenaka CorporationSelected ProjectsCrossing Wall House / Mobile Office ArchitectsSelected Projects Share South Korea Houses Yoojeongheon in Jeju Island / studio_GAON Starsis ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796135/yoojeongheon-in-jeju-island-studio-gaon Clipboard ArchDaily CopyHouses•Jeju-si, South Korea 2016 Projectscenter_img Architects: studio_GAON Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Photographs:  Youngchae Park Photographs “COPY” “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796135/yoojeongheon-in-jeju-island-studio-gaon Clipboard CopyAbout this officestudio_GAONOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJeju-siSouth KoreaPublished on September 29, 2016Cite: “Yoojeongheon in Jeju Island / studio_GAON” 29 Sep 2016.

Progress in hunt for missing media workers

first_imgNews IraqMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders said today it was encouraged by progress in a British military police enquiry into the fate of two missing media workers – French cameraman Frédéric Nérac and Lebanese interpreter Hussein Osman, of the British TV network ITN – six months after they vanished without trace after being caught in shooting between US Marines and Iraqi forces near Basra, in southern Iraq, on 22 March.British forces, who are in charge of the area, opened an official investigation in June and are now conducting searches and taking evidence from witnesses. They have not yet found solid indication of what happened to the pair, but US officials are now being helpful and France is cooperating with the enquiry. Nérac’s wife Fabienne Nérac is available for interview by journalists and can be contacted through Reporters Without Borders at +33 (0)1.4483-8484.A team of four non-“embedded” ITN journalists, including Nérac and Osman, were caught in the shooting on the second day of the US-British invasion of Iraq. British star reporter Terry Lloyd was killed, probably by US gunfire, and his colleague, Belgian cameraman Daniel Demoustier, who was in the same jeep (marked “TV”) was wounded. Demoustier hid in a ditch and was then taken to Kuwait by a passing British journalist. Nérac, 43, and Osman, 28, who were driving another vehicle, also marked “TV,” vanished without trace. US Secretary of State Colin Powell personally promised Nérac’s wife at a Brussels press conference on 3 April that US officials would find out what had happened.The two men’s journalists’ cards were found at Baath party offices in Al-Zubair, about 20 kms south of Baghdad, on 7 May. British authorities at first refused to make an official enquiry, saying ITN should first provide evidence that a war crime had been committed. But they relented in late May and began investigating in early June. Progress is being made in the enquiry into what happened to Frenchcameraman Frédéric Nérac and Lebanese interpreter Hussein Osman, both of the British TV network ITN, who disappeared in southern Iraq two days after the start of the US-British invasion six months ago. No solid clues have been found by British military investigators but searches are under way and US forces are now cooperating.

Today Black Knight released their First Look at December 2017’s mortgage performance data, revealing that serious delinquencies increased both month-over-month and year-over-year.According to Black Knight’s report, another 60,000 mortgages became delinquent by more than 90 days in December 2017, which adds to a total of approximately 143,000 90-day-plus delinquencies that can be attributed to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. That represents 20 percent of the nation’s entire stock of severely delinquent mortgage loans.Florida has now overtaken Mississippi as the state with the largest share of severely delinquent (more than 90 days past due) mortgages. Hurricane Irma’s after effects could be felt throughout both Florida and Georgia in December, with 102,500 severely delinquent loans in those states directly attributable to Irma. In Texas, 40,200 severely delinquent loans could be traced back to damages from Hurricane Harvey.After Florida, the five states with the most severely delinquent mortgage loans in December 2017 were Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Alabama.The overall delinquency rate, tracking loans 30 days or more past due, but not yet in foreclosure, increased 3.47 percent in December month-over-month, reaching its highest level since early 2016. However, Black Knight reports that foreclosure starts decreased to 44,500 in December, the lowest number since the Great Recession. The inventory of loans in active foreclosure is also slowly improving, dropping by 152,000 year-over-year, which amounts to a 32 percent decline. The number of properties that are 90 or more days overdue, but not in active foreclosure, came in at 726,000 in December, up by 44,000 year-over-year.You can read Black Knight’s full First Look at December 2017 mortgage activity by clicking here.
