James O’Connor on life in the UK and Wallaby ambitions – Total Rugby

first_imgWednesday Apr 30, 2014 James O’Connor on life in the UK and Wallaby ambitions – Total Rugby James O’Connor left Australia to seek greener pastures at London Irish and is clearly enjoying life in the Northern Hemisphere. Total Rugby put together this feature on the former Wallaby, where he speaks about rugby abroad, tactics and playing for his country. He needs to find a team in Australia though, which appears to be a challenge. O’Connor will join Toulon at the end of the season, then aims to get back to Australia to be eligible for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The problem, it appears, is that there isn’t too much interest from the teams in Australia, with the Rebels, Waratahs and Brumbies reportedly not interested.The Force are rebuilding after some previous issues, and have stated that they’re not sure they’d want to risk upsetting things again. The Reds is his best bet, but Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie has said that despite his fondness for O’Connor, it’s not his job to find the talented back a team.“I have left it up to him to work out how he gets back to Australia and that’s between him and the provinces really,” McKenzie told Fox Sports recently.“The people he has to convince are those people. They’ve got team cultures and how they want to go about business, and they also have salary caps and all those things.“He obviously chose to go offshore. Well, getting back onshore and getting back here, that’s the challenge he has got to sort out. I am not out there peddling anyone’s case. I have to be respectful of players who are here and plugging away and doing good things.“In the end, the melting pot for the World Cup will become obvious at the start of next year, and we’ll go from there,” the former Reds coach added. For Wallaby and rugby fans’ sake, it would be great to see him back in the gold and green jumper, especially with the World Cup such a showcase event. This video from Total Rugby gives us some insight into his frame of mind, and how much he’s enjoying life and rugby at London Irish.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Player Features Related Articles 28 WEEKS AGO New Zealand rugby pod admit Owen Farrell… 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary… 30 WEEKS AGO The highs and lows of Yoann Huget after he… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

AD Classics: Robin Hood Gardens / Alison and Peter Smithson

first_img Projects ArchDaily United Kingdom Year:  AD Classics: Robin Hood Gardens / Alison and Peter Smithson “COPY” Save this picture!Written by Sofia Balters Share “COPY” Text description provided by the architects. Robin Hood Gardens is a social housing complex in East London in the residential area of Poplar. It was designed by architects Alison and Peter Smithson and completed in 1972. The Brutalist buildings stand as an example of the Smithsons’ theories in practice. Practices that today face an uncertain future. Save this picture!Robin Hood Gardens was built in post-war Britain when residential towers were being built as a symbol of progress after the war. Many were developed with concrete in the Brutalist style including Robin Hood Gardens and the nearby Balfron Tower.Save this picture!Photo by Chris Guy – http://www.flickr.com/photos/pixelhut/Built within a decade of one another, the two buildings stand today with one major difference. The Balfron Tower’s status as a listed building protects it from demolition as an important architectural work, whereas Robin Hood Gardens has been denied.Save this picture!Photo by Steve Cadman – http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevecadman/By the 1970s British architects Alison and Peter Smithson had established themselves as leaders in post-war architecture. They had built a handful of their designs prior to Robin Hood Gardens, including the Economist Building, and were well know theorists. The Smithsons’ preached modern architecture designed with low cost, and easily available materials. Save this picture!Photo by John Levett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/joseph_beuys_hat/They were categorized as Brutalists, and sought for each building to be designed according to its location and its use. From these ideals also came their utilitarian aesthetic, reflecting all of these conditions in their buildings’ form.Save this picture!Photo by rb. fzz – http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbfzz/Robin Hood Gardens was built with panels of pre-cast concrete and is comprised of two horizontal structures which include a total of 213 apartments. There are one and two story apartments in both buildings, which bend slightly inwards, hugging the urban garden between them. In order to allow in more southern light, one of the buildings is ten stories high, while the other is seven stories.Save this picture!Photo by Amanda Vincent-Rous – http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/The garden is the center includes a rising hill created by the remnants from construction. This communal space for the residents is an essential part of Robin Hood Gardens for the Smithsons who were intent on improving people’s lives through design. Robin Hood Gardens was seen as their chance to prove this vision for progressive social housing.Save this picture!Photo by nothingtoseehere – http://www.flickr.com/photos/nothingtoseehere/Another example of the Smithsons’ social intentions is integrated through the concept of “streets in the sky.” Every third level of the buildings includes a wide concrete balcony jutting off towards the center of the site, overlooking the garden. The balconies are wide enough for multiple people to walk and for children to play. They were proposed by the Smithsons as a new neighborhood street for these housing units.Save this picture!Photo by John Levett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/joseph_beuys_hat/From the beginning, Robin Hood Gardens has been at the center of a debate concerning its success. Initially, structural issues raised the cost of the building. Once lived in, critics blamed crime within the buildings on the Smithsons’ design, but there have been many issues contributing to the less than ideal conditions of Robin Hood Gardens today. Save this picture!A serious denial in upkeep has made the apartments less desirable places to live, and developers are eager to demolish the buildings in order to expand their own visions of the future. If London intends to keep Robin Hood Gardens it will need to invest in renovations to liven the building, but renovations would come at a much lower cost than the current plan to demolish it.Save this picture!Photo by John Levett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/joseph_beuys_hat/No matter the final outcome, Robin Hood Gardens embodies Alison and Peter Smithsons’ vision for a new form of social housing. With both successes and failures within its concrete walls, the Smithsons’ radical vision will always exist within Robin Hood Gardens. It is an undeniably important piece of Great Britain’s architectural history and a monument of British modernism.Save this picture!Photo by Chris Skovgaard – http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrskovgaard/Project gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / PRAUDArticlesScottsdale Museum of the West / Jones StudioArticlesProject locationAddress:London, EnglandLocation to be used only as a reference.

The highest bidders for each author can have a character named after them in their next book, or can choose to have a character named after a loved one.Bid for authors’ adviceCLIC Sargent’s Get in Character auction offers other prizes, including the chance to have lunch with Lee Child or afternoon tea with thriller writer Amanda Jennings.Aspiring writers can bid on the opportunity to have their work critiqued by other top authors including Alison Bruce, Claire Dyer, Eve Seymour, Kate Rhodes, Karla Brading and Colette McBeth.Sunday Times Bestseller Lisa Jewell, who also supported the CLIC Sargent auction last year, said:“The Get in Character auction is great fun every year, and I’m proud to be supporting CLIC Sargent and the children and young people it works with.“I don’t have a particular character in mind for this year’s winner yet, so they’ll have to wait and see!

Last year we ran it as a pilot, 27 authors were involved, and we managed to raise £3,500.“This year it’s bigger and better and we’re hoping to more than double the amount raised.“I think what makes this auction successful is that the idea of being a character in a book really does capture people’s imagination.“We’re also lucky enough to have the support of some wonderful authors, many of whom have been touched by cancer in their lives and want to make a difference to the children and young people that we support.“My advice to people about running a successful eBay auction is to focus on something with a wide appeal, and what we love about this auction is that’s there are so many authors with different genres taking part there is something for everyone and every pocket.”The Get in Character auction runs from 8pm on 26 February to 8pm on 8 March 2015. • Other charities have raised funds from auctioning characters’ names in forthcoming novels.

Indiana Dairies Still Weighing Options as Dean Foods Contracts End

As that deadline draws nearer, many of those dairy farmers are still looking for a path forward. Joe Kelsay, a Johnson County dairy farmer, says the process started immediately after getting the letter from Dean Foods on March 1.“We made calls all over the industry (to) contacts that we had, other companies, other co-ops, to really try to get the word out that, ‘Hey, we’re going to be looking for a market.’ And today, after receiving a handful of no’s, the milk market just wasn’t that hungry for additional milk, to a few maybes, and so far one yes. We’re still working through the process, and in about a month we will have a final direction and decision I hope.”Kelsay feared that he would have to put an end to his dairy operation, but he believes now that there is a path forward, and he won’t have to shut down for the foreseeable future.“Our case isn’t necessarily the case across the board. There were 28 or so dairy farmers here in this state and over 100 around the country, and my heart goes out for each and every one of them.”Kelsay says he harbors no ill will toward Dean Foods. He said they’ve been a great partner since he started working with them in the early 90’s. Dean Foods offered assistance to the dairy farmers impacted by their decision, and Kelsay said they have followed through with that assistance.“They’ve helped us with really identifying some additional testing, as well as the organization of what the market looks like and where it might move, and those sorts of things. So, again, I appreciate Dean’s as a partner.”Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron told Hoosier Ag Today that he had not heard from all 27 Indiana dairy farmers, but as of a couple of weeks ago, he had heard from 8 that have agreed to new contracts.Kelsay attended the Fastest Rookie of the Year Luncheon hosted by American Dairy Association Indiana at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Four rookies were honored at the event held Tuesday. Andy Eubank will have more on that story later in the week.

McKillop, in recognition of his role in highlighting the plight of American Prisoners Of War (POWs) and Missing In Action (MIA) from the Vietnam and subsequent wars.The UL degree also acknowledged Dr McKillop’s support for Irish causes and his contribution to business in Ireland where he took a special interest in the ongoing development of Shannon Airport. He is an ardent supporter of the University of Limerick and was appointed as a director of the UL FoundationSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Of strong Irish heritage, Harry McKillop was born and raised in the US and served as a naval officer aboard the USS Phoenix in the Pacific World War II.His humanitarian campaigning began dramatically in 1969 when he directed and managed the massive logistics of a high-profile trip of the wives of American Prisoners of War to Vietnam to provide supplies and relief to US POWs.He made additional trips to Vietnam in the 1970’s and 1980’s as well as to Laos and Cambodia, to continue the search for, and the ultimate return of, missing American soldiers.Dr. McKillop has had a distinguished career in the aviation and development industries in the United States, initially with United Airlines, Branniff International and Pan American. For the past thirty years he has been a senior executive at the Perot Group.In addition to this Mr McKillop has an immense history in worldwide humanitarian rescue missions connected with United States POW situations and other crisis interventions. In 2007, he was awarded the Department of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service by President George W. Bush for more than 40 years of unselfish service to Americans in need around the world. Mr. McKillop has also demonstrated continued interest in supporting the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, Philippines.Dr McKillop’s Honorary Doctorate was conferred on him in Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas at an event attended by guests from the business, educational and political worlds.Speaking from the ceremony, UL President Professor Don Barry said of Mr McKillop: “Dr Harry McKillop is a true Irish-American hero and it is our privilege to recognise his unique contribution to Ireland, to the United States of America, to the great state of Texas and to society as a whole.“Throughout his extraordinary life and a career characterised by integrity, vision and achievement, Harry has not only provided a reliable friendship to those in need but has continuously, over the years, fought for what is just and right and often for those who thought the World had forgotten them , particularly prisoners of War and MIAs. And Harry has been a true friend of Ireland, contributing to cross-community initiatives throughout the island of Ireland as well as assisting a range of educational endeavours at the University of Limerick and many initiatives that have benefited the people of Ireland.”Speaking from the conferring ceremony Dr. McKillop said “I am deeply moved and humbled to receive this magnificent honor. It is all the more fulfilling to have it conferred by such an outstanding University in the proud land of my ancestors”.Dr McKillop has given extensive service to the University of Limerick through his membership of the Board of the UL Foundation. He has been recognised through the Harry McKillop Irish Spirit Award which was established by Mr Ross Perot to honour Harry and to celebrate the actions of those of Irish or Irish-American descent who have undertaken exemplary acts of humanitarianism. Recipients have included Fr Peter McVerry, founder of the McVerry Trust in Dublin and Jean Kelly, founder of the Speedwell Trust, a voluntary organisation working for peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland.President George W Bush honoured Dr McKillop for more than 40 years of unselfish work for Americans in need around the world and for his patriotic service by awarding him the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service.Dr. McKillop’s  grandparents emigrated from Ballycastle, County Antrim in the late 19th century.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Friends and family gathered on Saturday to remember Wendy Martinez, the woman who was stabbed to death in Washington, D.C., while out for a jog in an apparently random attack.The service was held at the Miracle Theatre, just a mile from the U.S. Capitol Building.Martinez, 35, was stabbed Tuesday night in what police called an “unprovoked” attack in the capital’s Logan Square neighborhood. She had gotten engaged to her boyfriend, Danny Hincapie, just one week prior.She stumbled into a Chinese restaurant in the neighborhood after police say she was stabbed seven times. Restaurant patrons called 911 and tried to stop the bleeding, but Martinez died at Medstar Washington Hospital Center.Anthony Crawford, 23, has been charged with first-degree murder in her stabbing.“It’s a gift to uncover the memories, and at the same time, it’s sad,” Martinez’s friend Kristina Moore told Washington ABC affiliate WJLA-TV at the memorial service.Martinez’s mother, Cora Martinez, said last week that her daughter was the “most beautiful, special, vibrant young girl.”Cora Martinez said her daughter will be buried in her wedding gown, which she chose the weekend before she was killed. Services will be held at Christ Fellowship Church in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday.A memorial fund has garnered more than $15,000 in donations online.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
