SYDNEY, NSW – SEPTEMBER 18: A general view of action during the NRL Semi Final match between the Wests Tigers and the Brisbane Broncos at Aussie Stadium September 18, 2005 in Sydney, Australia. (Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images) “The majority of the squad have worked continuously since last November, with the more recent integration of our Wallaby spring tourists. As a coaching team, we want to see players translate all the professional pre-season work on to the field of play. The matches are their opportunity to challenge for selection as we plan for the start of the of the FxPro Super Rugby tournament.” Sydney Football Stadium will host Waratahs v TongaThe HSBC Waratahs will follow up their opening trial against Samoa, February 10th in Tamworth, with a second match against Pacific Island opposition when they take on Tonga at the Sydney Football Stadium on Friday, February 17.With Sydney University playing Samoa in the curtain raiser (5.30pm) before the HSBC Waratahs take on Tonga at 7.30pm, fans will be able to enjoy two big games of rugby for the price of one in what promises to be an evening full of action.The trial matches will be the first in charge for Head Coach Michael Foley, who is hoping that back to back encounters against such physical opposition will provide the tough test the team needs ahead of the big FxPro Super Rugby opener against the Queensland Reds.Said Foley, “We are grateful for the opportunity to be playing both Samoa and Tonga in our preparation matches. These fixtures will see the players up against the formidable opponents that come with the Pacific Island style of play. The trials are likely HSBC Waratahs debuts for two high profile NSW signings, Central Coast-born Wallaby Adam Ashley-Cooper, who returns to his home state after seven years with the Brumbies, and dynamic South African scrum half Sarel Pretorius, last year’s Super Rugby top try scorer and Player of the Year in his native country.As part of the HSBC Waratahs’ continuing association with the Starlight Children’s Foundation, the event will help raise funds to assist with the Foundation’s ongoing work with seriously ill children.

PROJECTAs a result to the sites unique characteristics, the architectural concept arises from the indoor-outdoor interaction for this single family home that is set with open views in a complex topography.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe design is a synthesis of spaces joint through patios emphasizing the connectivity with the outdoor space. The complexity of heights gets resolved by locating the garage below the main volume to compensate the grading. This main volume houses the public area, 2 main areas that are connected through an entry patio and takes advantage of the main views and orientations. The private area and future expansions follow the same design logic of connections with the outdoor space. Through this open spaces, every room gets northern light.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSUSTAINABILITYThe suitable orientation of the house is not the only aspect considered for good temperature conditioning. A mixed construction system including concrete, metal framing hardware and 6 cm polyurethane foam rubber with air chamber; also aid to the conditioning of the place. Awnings and sliding vertical sunshades generate a microclimate that retains the heat or cold air. Rainwater is collected through a series of gutters and stored to be reused for landscape.Save this picture!PlanMATERIALSThe intention was to utilize low maintenance materials that would also have a lower impact to the site. Exposed concrete and oxidized metals are the main actors, with their unique characteristics of changing textures and coloring through time.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessTransborder Studio Wins Competition to Renovate Oslo Dairy Factory into New Agricult…Unbuilt ProjectModelo Empowers Collaboration and Presentation for ArchitectsMisc Share Houses “COPY” Area: 149 m² Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794636/ls-house-gaston-sironi Clipboard Projects Argentina “COPY” LS House / Gastón Sironi LS House / Gastón SironiSave this projectSaveLS House / Gastón Sironi CopyAbout this officeGastón SironiOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMendiolazaArgentinaPublished on September 06, 2016Cite: “LS House / Gastón Sironi” [Vivienda L.S. / Gastón Sironi] 06 Sep 2016.

Providing poor families with cows and other livestock, along with agricultural training, helps people become self-sustaining. Ideas on how to help the poor in our world come and go, but Heifer has produced a model that has endured for 60 years.”A central feature of Heifer’s approach is ‘Passing on the Gift’ which requires every family who receives Heifer animals to give female offspring to another family in need. That family then does the same, multiplying the impact of Heifer’s programmes until entire communities become self-sustaining.

We will also be working with HMCTS to discuss future arrangements and we remain committed to providing the sector with these invaluable services in the longer term.“We have received many messages of support this afternoon from the many charities who value our services and as always, we encourage feedback to drive further improvements both directly and via the channels relating to this review.”Commenting on the news, Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, said:“The current notification service is an essential tool for charities, giving them timely information on any forthcoming legacy gifts generously left by the public. It helps charities forecast legacy income, manage the administration of estates and plan how they spend those donations to make the world a better place. With legacy income generating £3 billion a year, this data is vital for the charity sector.”“It’s reassuring to see that Government recognises how important this service is for the charity sector, that new arrangements will be drawn up and that the charity sector will have a key part in that. But next steps here will be critical.“Remember A Charity has agreed to contribute to a working group to help shape the future service, ensuring that it continues to give fundraising charities the information they need and that we avoid delay in developing the replacement service, which could have a big knock-on impact on good causes.”Remember A Charity will also be hosting a consultation discussion for members at its next forum on 26 February, delivered by a representative of HM Courts & Tribunals Service. 149 total views, 1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The Courts & Tribunal Service has announced that it is to set up a new alert system for charitable bequests and conclude its arrangement with Smee & Ford, which has provided a paid-for notification service to participating charities for several years.An open letter was sent by Chief Executive Susan Acland-Hood to all affected charities to announce the change. The Courts & Tribunal Service said that while the arrangement with Smee & Ford was established in good faith, it has since found that it is not consistent with the department’s legal duties.As such, it will be inviting charity representatives to help it shape a replacement. It will also be working with Smee & Ford to ensure as little disruption as possible arising out of these changes over a six month notice period, and it will also seek their views about options for a new arrangement.Representatives of ACEVO, NCVO, the Institute of Fundraising, Remember A Charity, and the Institute of Legacy Management have all been invited to join a working group to bring together views of the sector with the aim of creating a new and sustainable arrangement that will continue to work for all those using the current service.HMCTS Chief Executive, Susan Acland-Hood, said:“I recognise the value to charities of receiving early notification of bequests left in wills and we are committed to working alongside the sector to establish a new, sustainable arrangement that works for everyone.Our decision to end our current arrangement with Smee & Ford is no reflection on the service provided by them but comes as a result of an assessment of our legal position. We will continue to work closely with the company to seek to ensure that there is as little disruption as possible arising out of these changes over the next period.” Advertisement 150 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23 Courts & Tribunal Service to set up new alert service for charitable bequests

Arrest warrants were issued for at least two other Cumhuriyet employees who are currently abroad.“Cumhuriyet is once again the target of persecution, another 15 media have been closed and there is hardly anyone left to cover this,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“If Turkey does not stop using the state of emergency to kill off media freedom it will soon be too late. At this rate, media pluralism will be a distant memory before long. Are people sufficiently aware of the dramatic change taking place in this country, where no media outlet seems to be safe from this never-ending purge?”Cumhuriyet had established itself in recent years as one of Turkey’s leading independent newspapers, winning the 2015 RSF-TV5 Monde Press Freedom Prize in the media category because of its fight for media freedom in an increasingly hostile environment and its courageous coverage of the most sensitive issues.Former editor-in-chief Can Dündar and Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gül have been sentenced to five years in prison for revealing details about Turkish arms deliveries to Islamist groups in Syria, and are facing an additional charge of “helping a terrorist organization.”Another 15 media outlets dissolvedThe last leading media outlets that support the Kurdish political movement were dissolved by decree on the evening of 29 October and their offices were quickly placed under seal. They include the DIHA and JINHA news agencies. They also include the dailies Azadiya Welat and Özgür Gündem, both of which had ceased to operate in August, when they were closed by force.The closure of critical media by decree has become almost routine under the state of emergency that was declared on 20 July. A total of 102 media outlets were dissolved at the end of July, followed by a score of TV and radio stations at the start of October.Internet cuts in the southeast Internet access is meanwhile badly disrupted in southeastern Anatolia, where the population is mostly Kurdish. The problems began on 26 October, shortly after Diyarbakir’s joint mayors, Gültan Kisanak and Firat Anli, were arrested, triggering a wave of protests. Initially covering ten cities, the Internet blackouts have been limited to Diyarbakir since the third day, according to the TurkeyBlocks website.“The Internet in Diyarbakir is now like the water in the village where I was born, limited to two hours a day,” Mahmut Bozarslan, a correspondent for AFP, Voice of America and Al Monitor, said in a tweet on 27 October. He told RSF that the Internet cuts were the worst he had ever experienced.“The cuts come when there are demonstrations against police operations, and prevent us from working and reporting these events for our media outlets,” he said on 28 October. Referring to the leader of the pro-Kurdish party HDP, he added: “The latest cut begun just before the news conference by [Selahattin] Demirtas and ended an hour afterwards, too late for us.”Murat Güres , the managing editor of the Gaziantep-based daily Ayintab, told RSF that he was finding it extremely difficult to produce his newspaper because of the Internet cuts. The Internet was cut half anhour after the HDP issued a call for demonstrations on 26 October.Nearly 700 journalists stripped of press cards RSF learned yesterday that two leading journalists, Dogan Akin and Hasan Cemal, have had their press cards withdrawn by the General Directorate for Information and Media (BYEGM), an offshoot of the prime minister’s office.Akin is the editor of the T24 news website while Cemal is a T24 columnist and founder of the P24 NGO. He used to be a columnist for the newspaper Milliyet until fired in February 2013 after he criticized then Prime Minister and now President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.Since the start of the state of emergency, the BYEGM has rescinding no fewer than 670 press cards, in most cases, the cards of journalists who worked for media outlets dissolved by decree.Already ranked as low as 151st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, Turkey has experienced an unprecedented crackdown since the 15 July coup attempt and the ensuing imposition of a state emergency, which has been used to silence critics, close media, and strip journalists of press cards and passports. At least 130 journalists are currently jailed.Read RSF’s September 2016 report on Turkey: “ State of emergency, state of arbitrary.” Follow the news on Turkey

He seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.A Huntington Memorial representative could not be immediately reached for comment.Young was hired at the hospital in October 2016 and was an exemplary employee whose hours and pay increased as time passed, according to his court papers. In April, he sought treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes, and his doctor ordered him not to treat the hospital’s COVID-19 patients, according to his suit.Young says he sought time off under the California Family Rights Act due to his health and his request was approved May 15. But in early June, hospital management “began to single out plaintiff and criticize his performance,” the suit alleges.After Young complained of discrimination and retaliation, management reacted by firing him, saying he did not have a required bachelor’s degree in nursing, according to his court papers. Young alleges the explanation was a “pretext for discrimination” because management knew when he was hired that he did not have such a degree and that other RNs who work there also do not.Although Young told hospital management about his health and provided notes from his doctors documenting his claims, no effort was made to accommodate him for his condition, the suit alleges.
