We all stand together: England are widely expected to inflict defeat on a vulnerable Wallaby teamBy Owain Jones, Rugby World EditorAUSTRALIA HAVE made the short hop over the channel after their heavy loss to France still talking the talk, yet negativity seems to follow them like a bad odour at present with legendary Wallaby wing David Campese wading in earlier this week with some typically acerbic quotes saying ‘Deans had destroyed Australian rugby and I want him to go’. It was also hardly the best preparation to hear your talismanic openside David Pocock had pulled up lame due to a calf strain. However, none of this will worry Stuart Lancaster who knows there is no room for sentiment the Test arena. He will be focusing solely on building on last weekend’s heavy win and sharpening up England’s finishing skills. Then there’s the small matter of registering all-important win in the IRB rankings race, with both sides going toe-to-toe for inclusion in the Top 4.Pressure: Robbie Dean rallies troopsWounded WallabiesAustralia are missing most of their first-choice backline, through injury and it’s hurting them. No side could cope, with the possible exception of the All Blacks, with the loss of Will Genia, James O’Connor, Quade Cooper and now Pat McCabe and their lack of cutting edge has been keenly felt with their low try count in 2012. If that wasn’t bad enough, aforementioned talisman David Pocock’s is out and James Horwill is recovering from a long-term injury. Off the field, Robbie Deans has been dodging bullets from the media, the camp, notably from Quade Cooper, and the wider general public for a while now. The man who employed him, ARU CEO John O’Neill has also stepped down weakening his power base. Deans knows he needs results, and fast.Fortress TwickenhamAt HQ, it is a far more convivial camp, after last week’s surprisingly comfortable 54-12 drubbing of Fiji. Wing Chris Ashton will return to the scene of one of England’s finest victories in recent years, when he inspired the side to a 35-18 win with a majestic length-of-the-pitch try. It means Ugo Monye has had to give way. On their own patch, England have been strong, winning eight of their last ten games in TW2 and they will confident of adding another ‘W’ tomorrow. Australia’s away form has been as patchy as England’s home form has been convincing. They have won only two away matches in the last 12 months, against Wales and Argentina. It’s fair to say, advantage England.Catch me if you can: Ashton’s famous Twickenham scoreToe to toeEngland will look to soften the Wallabies up at the Cole face, with Leicester tight-head Dan, now widely accepted as one of the world’s best pivot’s up front. Old-warrior Nathan Sharpe, fresh after answering another Wallabies SOS call, will need all his inspirational qualities to coerce the Australia’s front-five into gaining parity, and abrasive hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau will key to unsettling Youngs at Test level. For once, it’s out wide you can expect the fireworks, after Digby Ioane labelled the England boys ‘pretty’. Expect a fired-up Chris Ashton and on-form Charlie Sharples to do their talking on the field. Australia’s Drew Mitchell (L) cannot stop England’s Chris Ashton (R) from scoring a try during the Autumn International rugby union match at Twickenham Stadium,southwest London on November 13, 2010.

The house is located in a condominium in Nova Lima, a county in the metropolitan region of Belo Horizonte, 25 km from the capital of Minas Gerais. Its simple volume is composed of two rectangular boxes with identical dimensions and external coverings that overlap by a perpendicular design. The contrast between the construction and the presence of the landscape delimits the built space and appropriates the scenery without competing with nature, however assuming human intervention.Save this picture!© Daniel MansurThe green of the vegetation and the blue of the sky transform the landscape and surround the house that permeates the spaces. The large openings frame and direct the views to the surrounding preserved trees, while the vegetation ensures privacy and shadows the internal spaces. The external faces of the logical and straight design, covered with metallic corrugated tile, contrast the organic forms and materiality of nature.Save this picture!© Daniel MansurSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Daniel MansurValuing the external areas as much as the internal spaces, the implantation takes advantage of the dimensions of the available level and designs a patio between the two sectors – intimate and social. The overlapping of the volumes frees most of the flat area of the land for the use of the external space contiguous to the social block of the program. A large sliding door opens the kitchen and living space to the landing, encouraging the collective use of spaces and providing possible simultaneous use – external and internal. The intimate part of the program – three bedrooms, an office and bathrooms – is isolated from the social area and eventually noisy to a second floor. The horizontal and vertical circulations act as a barrier between the spaces and the openings of the other environments aim for the native vegetation and for the south orientation of the lot.Save this picture!© Daniel MansurSave this picture!Isometric ViewSave this picture!© Daniel MansurThe house was designed based on a mixed structural logic composed of heavy steel profiles – which structure the second floor, light steel frame (LSF) and concrete. The metallic mesh that uses cold-formed steel profiles makes up the entire structural box on the first and second floors. Braces, anchor bolts, connection plates, and reinforcement are part of the assembly kit fixed only by screws.Save this picture!© Daniel MansurIn the assembly system used, the parts come with the exact dimensioning according to the structural design and with the holes already made for connecting the parts, avoiding cutouts and leftover materials in the work. The external façades, as well as the roof structure, were covered with an impermeable blanket, ensuring watertightness against the presence of water or moisture. For the thermal and acoustic insulation the sandwich system was used on the walls, formed by plasterboard, rock wool, chipboard slabs and permeable membrane.Save this picture!© Daniel MansurTaking as a premise of use the materials described above, the house became composed of materials that brought agility in its assembly.Save this picture!© Daniel MansurProject gallerySee allShow lessL’Oreal Innovation Center / Perkins and WillSelected ProjectsCall for Submissions: Design of the Amphitheater in Burkina Faso.Student Competitions Share Save this picture!© Daniel Mansur+ 30Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Area: 1819 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeBernardo Horta ArquitetoOfficeFollowMeius ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNova LimaBrazilPublished on May 04, 2020Cite: “Pasargada House / Bernardo Horta Arquiteto + Meius Arquitetura” [Casa Pasargada / Bernardo Horta Arquiteto + Meius Arquitetura] 04 May 2020.

Here, reproduced with his permission, is what he had to say.“I am Director of World in Need (WIN), a UK-based charitable foundation. I believe that the way we work is an unusual model which contributes something to this debate on venture phil and corporate responsibility. Advertisement “WIN is one of three charitable foundations which own the shareholding in a private business – Andrews, a estate agency business with around 40 branches in UK. This charitable ownership was the vision of its founder, Cecil Jackson-Cole, in the 1940s. ‘CJC’ was a Quaker, businessman and philanthropist. His was an early vision of corporate socialresponsibility – running good businesses and putting profit to philanthropic end.“So, WIN does not possess an endowment but rather pursues its mission through the dividend that its shareholding provides – this encourages a business like, enterprising and disciplined culture within WIN which is consistent with its mission.“Since the 1940s, WIN has seen its core mission as setting up new charitable ventures. CJC and his business staff were instrumental in developing Oxfam from the temporary Oxford Committee for Famine Relief. CJC used his personal business acumen, his business profits and his own staff to developOxfam (1950s) and then later Help the Aged (1970s) and ActionAid (1980s).“In the 1993 WIN helped set up Opportunity International UK, and most recently has been the primary investor in Spire Trust and Caxton Trust (educational NGOs), BasicNeeds (a new initiative in mental health and development) and Street UK (UK microfinance).“We have recently started to describe the way we work in contemporary language of venture capital and social entrepreneurism. The WIN model involves:investment in start upidentifying an ‘entrepreneurial’ quality in the individual or group we supportproviding grant finances for a 3 – 6 year period to cover core costs for a new venture – institutional funding not ‘project’ fundingproviding non-financial added-value e.g. governance (trustees/Directors on the venture’s Board drawn from WIN or Andrews), services like payrolling, networking, technical support and even office incubation using Andrews business space, and so on.“Like venture capitalists, we seek to add far beyond finance; we are committed to the long haul in growing a small business; we are hands-on but not micro-managers. Our return is social not financial. Over the last 5 years Andrews has distributed around £1.2 million in this way, through WINand its sister foundations. The social return has been the contribution to poverty eradication through highly respected NGOs. All these NGOs became financially viable within 3 – 6 years, at which point WIN withdraws.“I stress that in all these start ups WIN has been the primary or exclusive investor, acting as a venture capitalist in a business set up.“In this model, Andrews is a business which acts with social responsibility (through charitable ownership and use of resources). WIN acts as a kind of social venture capitalist with finance and non-finance added value.“Although we have generally launched charitable ventures (ie registered charities) we have also supported non-profit social businesses e.g. Workfinders a non-profit employment agency.” Howard Lake | 17 January 2001 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Breaking news from Durham: On Nov. 14, Durham District Attorney Roger Echols decided not to pursue any felony charges against #DefendDurham defendants for toppling a Confederate statue on Aug. 14. Our movement is powerful. After dozens of unions and community organizations spoke out, hundreds of phone calls, thousands of emails flooding the DA, we have overcome. We still have to beat back the misdemeanor charges. Onwards now to the People’s Tribunal! If you would like to testify about crimes of white supremacy, or want to be involved with the Commission of Inquiry, please direct message Workers World Party Durham Branch on Facebook. #SmashWhiteSupremacyIn one step toward victory in the fight against white supremacy in North Carolina, the Durham County district attorney dropped all felony and misdemeanor charges on Nov. 9 against three people present when Durham freedom fighters toppled a Confederate statue on Aug. 14.Six of the people charged in connection with the statue takedown were to appear in court in Durham on Nov. 14. They face very serious penalties, including “misdemeanor damage to real property” and “felony inciting a riot to cause property damage in excess of $1,500,” which carries a potential sentence of 2 to 3½ years in prison.Defend Durham, a community organization that has rallied around those who brought down the statue, issued a Nov. 9 statement on the dropping of charges against the three defendants. In part, the organization said: “We must remember that we cannot trust the system to change that which it upholds. This was merely representative of a lack of evidence, not an acquiescence of power. … We must continue to fight until the remaining [people charged] walk free, until no Confederate statues remain, until all institutions of white supremacy have been abolished.”One of the defendants, Loan Tran, a member of Workers World Party, declared in a Nov. 12 Facebook post: “We won [the recent acquittals] because we organize and because we didn’t do anything wrong! Myself and 11 others are still facing ridiculous charges — among them two felony riot charges. … Let’s keep flooding the streets and the phone lines. Let’s indict this system for its true crimes — the countless evictions and cession of Black and Brown neighborhoods to developers; the unending murders of our people in the streets, in the jails, at the workplace, in detention centers; the total and unapologetic protection this system offers to the statues that literally enshrine and uphold white supremacy.”Electrical Workers (UE) Local 150, North Carolina Public Service Workers Union, issued a rousing “Labor Call to Action” in support of the freedom fighters.The local asks people to call Durham County District Attorney Roger Echols at 919-808-3010 and North Carolina state Senate President Phil Berger at 919-733-5708 on Nov. 14, the activists’ day in court. Callers are continuing to demand that all charges be dropped against all the activists as well as urging repeal of a recent state law passed to protect Confederate monuments by forbidding “removal of historical monuments.”The UE call “to oppose white supremacy” reads in part: “The Durham action was another powerful expression of people’s anger and disgust with how the system uses its power to remind Black, Brown and oppressed people of their ‘place’ and ongoing oppression and exploitation.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

In July, the High Court had allowed all unaided private institutions in the state of Tamil Nadu to collect 40% of the tuition fees as ‘advance fees’, based on the tuition fees for the academic year 2019-2020. At that time, it was directed that balance of 35% of the fees shall be collected within a period of two months from the date on which the institution is reopened and physical classes commence. However, in its order dated November 18, a Single Bench of Justice N. Anand Venkatesh took judicial notice of the fact that due to Covid-19, re-opening of schools and commencing physical classes may not take place till the end of this year. In view thereof it said, “If physical classes cannot be commenced till the end of this year, it will effectively leave only three months of regular functioning during this academic year from January to March 2021 and rest of the two months will be spent on conducting the examinations. In fact, public examinations may even be commenced and completed before April 2021. Therefore, it will be fit and proper to consider the request made by the institutions to collect the balance 35% of the fees.” The Court has ordered: Unaided private institutions are permitted to collect the balance 35% tuition fees for the academic year 2019-2020; This fees shall be paid by the students on or before 28.02.2021. It is left open to the institutions to collect this 35% fees in instalments by issuing an appropriate circular. Several institutions had informed the Court that in some cases, students had not paid even the 40% fees and the arrears fees payable for academic year 2019-2020. It was urged that the Court should consider giving further directions for the payment of the balance fees, to enable them to meet various expenses. In this regard, the Court thus ordered, “Any student who has not paid the initial 40% fees and/or the arrears of fees payable for the academic year 2019-2020, shall pay these fees also apart from the balance of 35% of the fees.” Before parting, the Court cautioned the educational institutions against demanding entire tuition fee from students. It said that action will be taken against such institutions that are found to be in contravention of this order. (District Educational Officers and Chief Educational Officers shall identify such institutions) The matter is now listed for hearing on March 1, 2021. Click Here To Download Order Read OrderNext Story
