Shane Williams on England vs WalesWhat is your view on the Welsh back-line in particular, especially considering all the injuries. There are no changes at the moment despite George North coming back so, what are your views on that?Obviously a lot was said about the injuries and the form of players, but I’m positive after the weekend. The game plan was to move the ball and have a good tempo, score tries and get points and that’s exactly what they did.The style fits the players they have and the no changes, it shows Warren (Gatland) has faith and shows the strength in the team. To be honest the injuries beforehand may have been a blessing in disguise.Related: Wales Team to Face England So who do you think will win between England and Wales this weekend?I think it will be a good game, close, we certainly have the potential to win. I mean England are up there with New Zealand, I think they may be a little too strong but I hope I’m wrong.I think England have such strength and depth that they are there, whereas Wales are not quite there I don’t think.Corner stop: Elliot Daly scores the winning try in the closing minutes in Cardiff last year Photo: Getty ImagesLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSWhat is your opinion on the issue of injuries at the moment? Do you think players are playing more games, or they are bigger and stronger now compared to when you played?I think it is a combination of factors. I think it is more physical now, which means the collisions at impact are bigger.The players now are more athletic, sometimes you have a back-rower as quick as the backs. All of them are athletes so the margin of error is so much smaller.I also think you can predict injuries better now, they’re more conscious of it, where they scan a muscle and see a small tear so rather than play on and aggravate it they just rest them. When I played you just had to get on with it. But I think they look after players more now.What is your opinion on the new Wales eligibility rules, of players needing 60 caps to be picked for Tests if they are based overseas?I can see why the WRU have done it, they want to strengthen rugby in the regions and I think it will help there.But the only downside I can see is Rhys Webb. It was a shambles to be honest, where he signed with Toulon thinking he would still be eligible for Wales and then he found out he wasn’t.I was very annoyed at that because I think they have to be more transparent with players beforehand.Tough call: The new eligibility rule has damaged Webb’s Wales career, and was a complete shambles according to Shane (Getty Images)In terms of the Six Nations who do you think will win the tournament?England are the favourites but I think whoever wins on the weekend will win the championship. England will win against Ireland, so if they win on Saturday I think they will probably win the Grand Slam.But if Wales win their confidence will go through the roof.I genuinely believe the winner on Saturday can win the championship.Related: England Team to Face Wales So it’s a little over a year until the World Cup, being held in Japan for the first time. Are you excited or apprehensive at how its going to be received out there?Well I am a little bit anxious in terms of the stadiums and the infrastructure, but I am fairly convinced they can sort it out. I am excited because it will be unique. It is the first World Cup in Asia and all the people are really excited.The Japanese people, they do not want to disappoint, so people really need to go out there as Japan is a lovely country.What is it about Japan that you like the most? Was it the food, the people or something else?You get used to the food – I must admit I wasn’t the biggest sushi person. Japan really is one of the most alien countries I have ever been to but for me the people really stood out.They are friendly and accommodating to the extent I wasn’t really used to, because we aren’t the most polite in the UK!But the people, there is nothing they won’t do, and it will be a unique World Cup because of that.So will the players get a bit of a culture shock?It will be a shock if they haven’t been before definitely, because its not what you’re used to, but you quickly fall into their style and just get on with business.I have been privileged enough to play in many World Cups, but I’m gutted I never got to play in one in Japan, because they really are going to make a festival out of the whole thing.On the rise: Japanese rugby in all forms has massively improved. Photo: Getty ImagesJapan have a Super Rugby team now, the Sunwolves, and of course they had that victory against South Africa in the World Cup in 2015. Is it noticeable how the game has grown there?I think it’s no secret its grown, with John Kirwan (who coached Japan from 2007 to 2011) and Eddie Jones and the national side. Actually Eddie, in particular, has been involved in its growth, and in high schools and colleges the game is strong and it’s up there now.It took a massive step up in the three years I was there, it’s great. There is more money in the infrastructure and there are more better players around.In terms of the World Cup, who do you think in the northern hemisphere can make the most noise in Japan?Again, England are the firm favorites, I mean we are still a year out but the leagues domestically have real quality. But all the teams are going in the right direction.Ireland are always there, Scotland are improving, but I do think in terms of strength and depth, England are strong.With Rugby World Cup 2019 on the horizon, Shane tackles the best Japan has to offer in his new online series Shane Williams: Big In Japan http://www.facebook.com/shanebiginjapan In an interview with Rugby World, Shane Williams discusses the 2019 World Cup, injuries and who will win the Six Nations Sumo Wrestler: Watch Shane Williams and Andy Powell try their hands at sumo wrestling in Japan (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS To discover the wonders of Japan for yourself: http://visitjapan2019.com/ #EndlessDiscovery TAGS: Japan
Submit an Event Listing Youth & Young Adults Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Participantes en el Festival de los jóvenes adultos discuten la legislación del día durante una sesión con María Getz, coordinadora de comunicaciones en línea de la Oficina de Relaciones gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal en Washington, DC. Foto/Sharon Sheridan[Episcopal News Service – Indianápolis] “¿Usted no ha oído hablar de Bonnie Ball?”Los jóvenes se apresuraron a tirar de un sitio web en un teléfono celular para mostrar a la Presidente de la Cámara de los Deputados de la Convención General, Bonnie Anderson, cómo los que se dirigían a la Cámara estaban ganando puntos en un juego en línea por tal comportamiento, como hablar sobre el mismo tema más de una vez (2 puntos), llevar algo extraño en la cabeza al hablar (5 puntos) o mencionar a Bonnie Ball cuando se dirigían a la presidencia (15 puntos).“Eso es muy divertido”, dijo Anderson. “¿Han visto al tipo con la pata de langosta [en el sombrero]? … Tal vez pudiera pedirlo prestado”.Anderson pasó su hora de almuerzo el 9 de julio comiendo pizza y charlando sobre cosas serias y no tan serias con los miembros de la Presencia Oficial de la Juventud. Anderson escribió la resolución en 1982 que creó la presencia, integrada por 18 jóvenes -dos por provincia- que tienen voz pero no voto en la Cámara de los Diputados.Los jóvenes y jóvenes adultos han sido una presencia visible en Indianápolis, reuniéndose con grupos oficiales y con las redes no oficiales para observar y participar en los trabajos de la Convención General.Durante el almuerzo, los jóvenes preguntaron a Anderson sobre cómo ella manejaba el agitado programa de la convención (ella admitió dormir hasta que su alarma la despertara por la mañana por primera vez desde tiempos de la universidad) y comentó sobre su paciencia con la Cámara.“Tengo tres promesas que me hice a mí misma: ten paciencia, sé educada y profesional”, les dijo. Otro buen consejo: “Aspira, respira, y sonríe. Funciona bastante bien”.Cuando uno de los jóvenes dijo que la convención a veces resultaba confusa, Anderson comentó: “Es difícil cuando usted está rastreando algo dejar de hacerlo y girar a la caída de un sombrero y hacer otra cosa”.Y admitió que los acontecimientos podían darle una sorpresa, también a ella. Cuando esperados intérpretes españoles no estaban disponibles durante la sesión de la mañana, ella dijo: “Estaba realmente esperando una solución”.Marlene Rodríguez Hernández, de la Diócesis de Puerto Rico y Cole Mayer de la diócesis de Dakota del Sur, jóvenes designadas periodistas, entrevistaron a Anderson para un segmento de video en el blog del grupo. Se interesaron por la representación de la juventud en el Comité Conjunto Nominador para la elección del Obispo Presidente, sus pensamientos acerca de la presencia de los jóvenes, su inminente retiro y su parte favorita en la Convención General.Reflexionando luego sobre cómo el programa de los jóvenes se había desarrollado a lo largo de los años, Anderson dijo que estaba impresionada por la vitalidad de los jóvenes, el entusiasmo y el compromiso de saber lo que estaba pasando y la participación en la convención. “Es una inspiración para mí. Ellos son los mejores”.Los jóvenes parecían disfrutar también pasando el tiempo con ella.“Creo que es maravillosa”, dijo Emma Grundhauser, de 16 años, de la Diócesis de Minnesota. “Usted puede decir que tiene una pasión por el ministerio de la juventud”.Jóvenes “Millennials”La noche anterior, los jóvenes adultos de todas partes de la convención, incluyendo a los jóvenes diputados y a los miembros del Festival de Jóvenes Adultos – se reunieron en la sala de reuniones del festival en el Hilton antes de la regular reunión de cada noche y de completas.A la reunión siguió a la formación de un grupo de Facebook para los jóvenes adultos y jóvenes diputados a la Convención General por la Rda. Megan Castellan, de 29 años, diputada de la Diócesis de Arizona, después de que se presentó el borrador de presupuesto. En la reunión del 8 de julio, discutieron por qué eran episcopales y cómo se había sentido autorizados o conectados en la convención.“Es importante mencionar el por qué usted forma parte de la iglesia, especialmente cuando la iglesia parece ambivalente acerca de vuestra presencia”, dijo.La lista de “¿Por qué soy locamente episcopal?” incluía: “Porque yo nací aquí, PERO mis padres lo hicieron bien”, “porque tenía una voz”, “por la Escritura, la tradición y la razón, y la conversación no termina ahí”, “a causa de la comunitaria comunión del cáliz”.Castellan dijo que esperaba que el grupo formara una comunidad en línea a través de “listserv” Twitter o grupo en Facebook para mantenerse en contacto después de la convención. “Los jóvenes episcopales no se conocen entre sí. Vas a una iglesia y eres la única persona de menos de 50 años, y puede ser una experiencia de increíble aislamiento”.Castellan dijo que había pertenecido a una red similar de la generación X en la iglesia. “Es realmente una vibrante listserv”.Pero, dijo: “Hay una enorme diferencia entre la generación X y la generación del “millennials”, e incluso entre ella y los más jóvenes de los millennials con los que trabaja con un ministro del campus.“Ellos siempre han crecido en un mundo post-cristiano”, dijo. “Su percepción acerca de por qué van a ir a la iglesia es en general muy diferente a cuando les pregunto a los feligreses mayores”.El Festival de Jóvenes adultosPatrocinado por los Jóvenes adultos de la Iglesia Episcopal y los Ministerios del Campus, el festival ofrece una oportunidad para ser mentores de los jóvenes de 18 a lo 30 años de edad para que asistan a la convención.“Consiste solamente en darles poder para formar parte de esto y ayudarles a abogar por su presencia y defender aquello que les apasiona”, dijo Jason Sierra, oficial de la iglesia para el liderazgo de los jóvenes adultos y las vocaciones. El festival ofrece talleres sobre la forma de gobierno episcopal y de la convención, ayuda a los participantes a seguir la legislación y proporciona oportunidades para el compañerismo y la adoración.“Es una presencia no oficial en la Convención General”, dijo.La convención de este año cuenta con 22 jóvenes adultos diputados y 95 participantes en el festival, incluyendo grandes grupos de las diócesis de Arkansas, Newark, Atlanta y Los Ángeles, dijo Sierra. En una nueva iniciativa, hay 23 jóvenes adultos de pasantías en organizaciones en la convención como: Integridad, la Comunidad Episcopal de Paz, la Consulta de Chicago, el Campamento Episcopal y Centros de Conferencias, Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén y la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo además de las Mujeres de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo.El festival ofrece a los jóvenes adultos una manera de participar en la convención, por ejemplo, algunos han dado testimonio en las audiencias. Y que puedan participar tanto más o tan poco en los eventos del festival como gusten.“Ellos disfrutan de la flexibilidad, pero necesitan este punto de partida”, dijo Sierra.Creando conexionesLos jóvenes y los jóvenes adultos dieron una total aprobación a las experiencias de la convención.En la reunión de jóvenes “millennials”, Steven Duvoisin de la Diócesis de Nebraska dijo que disfrutó al oír las muchas historias compartidas por la gente “acerca de las experiencias positivas de capacitación que están teniendo dentro de la iglesia”.“Creo que como jóvenes adultos es fácil desanimarse y sentirse aislados y centrarse en los aspectos negativos cuando en realidad hay un montón de cosas buenas y un montón de cosas de Dios que suceden”, dijo Duvoisin, que estaba ayudando al personal de la Fundación de Tri-Faith en el stand de la sala de exposiciones.También de Nebraska, Michael Heller, de 28 años, asistió a la convención como voluntario, sirviendo como asistente legislativo en la estructura de los comités. “Quería ver cómo funciona la Iglesia a este nivel”, dijo. “Ha sido interesante trabajar con otro asesor legislativo que es mucho mayor. Ese tipo de trabajo intergeneracional ha sido una gran experiencia. Es necesario que haya más de esto en la Convención General”.Rachel O’Connell, asistiendo a la convención como parte del festival, dedicó tiempo a aprender sobre el Cuerpo Episcopal Servicio de parte de Amity Carrubba, Directora ejecutiva.La convención ha sido “una experiencia maravillosa, a no ser por el ridículo calor”, dijo O’Connell, de 26 años. “De ninguna manera me he sentido segregada o señalada [como una joven adulta]”.Una gerente de servicio al cliente de una compañía de software en Newport Beach, California, dijo que estaba considerando seriamente participar en el cuerpo de servicio. “Creo que mi vida sería más adecuada en el servicio de lo que es en el software”.De vuelta al almuerzo de la presencia de la juventud, Grace Steele, 16, de la Diócesis de Long Island encontró que la convención le dio la oportunidad de repasar su español.“Pensé que sería una muy buena e interesante experiencia conocer jóvenes de todas partes de la iglesia, especialmente de Puerto Rico y de la República Dominicana”.Hernández, de 17 años, dijo que quería ver si hay diferencias entre los episcopales de los Estados y los de su natal Puerto Rico. Se dio cuenta de que mientras que la lengua es diferente, “todos formamos parte de la misma familia”.También quería experimentar el funcionamiento legislativo de la convención, dijo. “Es una conexión entre la normativa y la iglesia”.“Es muy interesante la forma en que tratamos los asuntos como episcopales”, dijo Mayer, 17. “El estar en un grupo con miles de episcopales es bastante divertido y emocionante”.– Sharon Sheridan es un miembro del equipo de Servicio de Prensa Episcopal en la Convención General.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Malaria, West Nile virus and heartworms – as if you didn’t already have enough reasons to fear and loathe mosquitoes and the illnesses they spread, now there’s Zika, a virus that is possibly linked to birth defects. Mosquitoes are much more than itchy nuisances; the illnesses they can transmit with their bite kill thousands of humans every year. In fact, some scientists believe malaria, a mosquito-borne illness, has killed one out of every two humans who has ever lived, according to a report in National Geographic.Keeping mosquitoes away from your home, yard and family is much more than a matter of convenience; it may help preserve your health. Eliminating standing water from your property is the single most effective thing you can do as a homeowner to minimize the presence of mosquitoes around your property. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in still water – puddles and standing water in your yard can be a breeding ground. “When warm weather arrives, that low spot in the backyard where water always collects becomes much more troublesome than just being an eyesore,” says Ryan Larsen, a civil engineer with NDS Inc., a leading manufacturer of water management solutions. “It will attract mosquitoes that will want to lay their eggs in that standing water, but first they need to bite a human or two.”Homeowners may think solving their drainage problems will be difficult and costly, or that they’ll end up with an ugly drainage ditch on their property. But Larsen says it is possible to eliminate standing water cost-effectively and attractively. He suggests homeowners take these five simple steps:1. Identify actual or potential trouble spots.Is there a low area in the yard where water collects after rain? Are any downspouts or gutters on your home clogged with debris? Does water linger along a retaining wall, edging, walkway or patio after you’ve irrigated the lawn? Mosquitoes can lay their eggs in very shallow standing water, so anywhere water collects could be a breeding ground.2. Address the easy fixes first.The gutters, downspouts and minor collection spots are easily addressed by simply clearing away the obstructions. When those issues are resolved, homeowners should concentrate on addressing low areas, Larsen says. “These muddy, wet areas look bad, can kill grass, attract mosquitos and eventually lead to more serious damage to a property,” he says.3. Determine the scope of the problem.Standing water on a property can occur in multiple spots, from walkways to lawns. NDS offers an online Home Drainage Center to help you identify your problem, possible solutions and whether the resolution is a DIY project or if you’ll need to hire a professional.4. Choose and install your solution.French drains, underground drainage and catch basins are typical solutions for many home drainage problems. Placing drainage underground not only minimizes the risk of mosquitoes breeding in standing water, it can preserve the visual appeal of your landscape. For example, for NDS drainage solutions that involve catch basins, the company offers a wide selection of decorative catch basin grates, so the portion of the system you can’t hide will be visually appealing. Most drainage systems can be installed in just one weekend.5. Take steps to protect yourself.Mosquitoes have been around since the time of the dinosaurs (and they’ve been spreading malaria for that long, too), according to National Geographic. While eliminating standing water on your property will go a long way toward reducing the number of mosquitoes in your environment, it’s virtually impossible to remove them entirely. The American Mosquito Control Association says some mosquitoes will travel 40 miles or more in search of a meal. When outdoors, wear insect repellant on exposed skin and clothing. Choose repellants with an active ingredient like DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Dark colors attract mosquitoes, so wear lighter colored clothing, and burn citronella candles or run a fan near the ground when you’re enjoying your deck or patio.For more information about home drainage solutions, go here, where you’ll also find instructional videos, the Home Drainage Center, production recommendations, installation instructions and helpful links.

Photographs: Leonardo Finotti Text description provided by the architects. The São Roque residence was designed based on two constraints: it should take full advantage of the southern view of the lot with an average slope of twenty percent, and be a single-floor dwelling. As a site for the house and the immediate yard, a thirty by thirty meter area was leveled to a height of three meters below the highest point of the lot, based on a calculation of equal amounts of excavation and landfill, using retaining walls reinforced with geo-grids.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiIt was determined that all the elements of the residence – yard, floor, and water – should all be situated on this same level. The structure is based on a module of two pillars set twelve meters apart that support a beam ninety centimeters high at the center but tapering to twenty centimeters at both ends, which are each cantilevered to a length of four meters beyond the pillars. Four lines of these beams running in the east/west direction at intervals of six meters support the roof made of pre-cast concrete slabs. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe house is organized in five functional blocks running longitudinally in the north/south direction, that is, transversal to the structure. From east to west: the block containing the bedrooms and TV room; the plumbing block with the bathrooms; the social block consisting of the living and dining room, pool and veranda; the kitchen and barbecue block, characterized by a very long counter; and, finally, at the extreme west, the service block, consisting of a pantry, storeroom, pool-equipment room, laundry room and sauna. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe design is developed around an exterior central hub. Thus, the set made up of the pool and spa divides the social block into two identical spaces: the veranda and the living/dining room area. A sliding wooden door measuring six meters wide by two meters and seventy centimeters high runs along the kitchen/barbecue block equipped with the long counter (which, supported on two pillars and cantilevered on the ends, mimics the house’s basic structural module) and can be used to either divide, or not, the kitchen from the dining room, the kitchen from the pool, or the barbecue area from the veranda. Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe social block is cut across its width by three successive planes of transparent glass: the first between the south yard and the living room, the second between the living room and the pool, and the third between the veranda and the yard to the north.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessTrump Towers Proposal / Aflalo & Gasperini ArquitetosArticlesTEX-FAB 4 APPLIED Research Through Fabrication ConferenceArticles Share Save this picture!© Leonardo Finotti+ 12 Share São Roque Residence / Tacoa Arquitetos Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/319710/sao-roque-residence-tacoa-arquitetos Clipboard Projects CopyHouses•São Roque, Brazil São Roque Residence / Tacoa ArquitetosSave this projectSaveSão Roque Residence / Tacoa Arquitetos “COPY” “COPY” Brazil ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/319710/sao-roque-residence-tacoa-arquitetos Clipboard Architects: Tacoa Arquitetos Photographs CopyAbout this officeTacoa ArquitetosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasSão RoqueHouses3D ModelingBrazilPublished on January 17, 2013Cite: “São Roque Residence / Tacoa Arquitetos” 17 Jan 2013.
