  • Leigh Halfpenny – Cardiff Blues and Wales

    first_imgWales have won only two Tests in 2010 – against Scotland and Italy in the Six Nations – so if they’re to start building momentum for the World Cup they need to pick up some significant victories this month. Halfpenny says firmly: “If we have ambitions to win the World Cup it starts this November. It’s vital for our preparation for the World Cup. We all want to win and we want to be confident going into the World Cup, so we need to play against the best.”“It’ll be tough but the only way to get confidence is to get results against these teams and there’s no reason why we can’t. We learnt a lot in the summer when we pushed South Africa and New Zealand close and the way the game is going, with a lot more running, is great. We’ve all been working hard and we’re looking to improve.”It’s obvious from talking to Halfpenny that he’s not someone with his head in the clouds. In the past two years he’s established himself as a regular starter for Cardiff Blues and Wales, and rather than get caught up in the hype of Welsh rugby he has a steely determination to continually improve – both individually and collectively as a team. It’s impressive to see such focus and drive in one so young. “I try to keep my head down, work hard and don’t take in too many outside influences,” he says. “If I don’t think about it, it can’t bother me and I can stick to what worked for me in that first season.”“It took a lot of hard work for me before I broke through to the international side and I think the trick is to remember and hold onto that. As soon as you think you’ve made it – whether you’ve won two caps or 20 – that’s when you’re probably in trouble.”Learn more about Leigh’s teammates at Wales…Dwayne PeelAndy Powell Leigh Halfpenny – new and improvedHaving bulked up for last year;s Autumn Internationals, the Welsh wing talks to Rugby World to discuss why the sudden gym interest.There’s a new Leigh Halfpenny taking to Europe’s rugby pitches this season; a bigger and better version of the previous one. One look at the video of his ten-metre sprint in Wales testing is enough to see the change as the wing shows off his new bulging muscles. He’s upped his weight from 12st 8lb to 13st 3lb, with the difference particularly noticeable in his upper body. So what’s behind this incredible bulk? “It was a personal choice and I just wanted to get bigger and stronger,” says the 21-year-old. “I worked hard in pre-season, sometimes doing two weights sessions a day in the morning and afternoon, as I wanted to put on a bit more bulk. I’ve been spending a lot of hours in the gym, but as long as it pays off it’s worth it.”Halfpenny hasn’t been pumping iron to impress the ladies but his coaches. He wants to bring a new dimension to his game, to add power to his pace. Furthermore, he has been working with Casey Laulala, the former All Black centre who has had such a positive influence on Cardiff Blues’ game, to improve his footwork too. “I’m trying to better myself as a player,” explains Halfpenny.“I thought of ways I could work harder on my game in pre-season and what I could improve on. I want to make more of an impact – to make more line breaks, to keep the ball when running at bigger forwards, to get over the gain-line more, to break tackles and so on. With Casey I’ve been doing extra work on my footwork and how to beat a player. I’m trying to become a better sidestepper. He’s got a great step so I’m trying to pick things up from him so I can beat my man, go round someone and go through the tackle.”“Sometimes you’ll feel there’s nothing on in a game and Casey will get the ball and just make something out of nothing. He’s been great at creating things for us. Every time he gets the ball you don’t know what’s going to happen but you’re confident that something is going to happen and it’s going to be good.“It’s definitely something I’m trying to do as a player too. Sometimes I’ll set up a tackle and not create much, so I’m trying to stay up in the tackle and get offloads away, or break the tackle. I’m still working on it and it’s starting to pay off this season. I’m feeling the benefits.”Halfpenny’s new skills will be given a stern test this month as Wales face Australia, South Africa, Fiji and New Zealand on consecutive weekends. He is looking forward to the challenge and is excited about the prospect of once again playing against Bryan Habana and Joe Rokocoko – he made his debut marking the former two years ago and faced the latter in New Zealand over the summer. “Joe has been one of my big, big role models as a player; some of his try-scoring… it’s unbelievable finishing at times and he’s just so fast. I was lucky enough to play in the same team as him and Bryan for the Barbarians last year. I got on well with them off the field and it’ll be good to test myself against them.”“It’s a great challenge but that’s what you want to do as a player, to test yourself against the best in the world, improve and get confidence. I’m looking forward to doing that this autumn if I’m picked.”Halfpenny doesn’t really need to add that caveat; he’s started the last three Tests for Wales against South Africa and New Zealand (twice) and has carried his form from the end of last season into the start of this, so should form part of the back-three unit with Ospreys Lee Byrne and Shane Williams.

El arzobispo dice en su nota que está “encantado con la llegada un niño” y que comparte con la familia real el gozo y la alegría de millones de otras personas. Además, añadió que “Dios bendiga a esta familia con amor, salud y felicidad en sus vidas ahora y por siempre”. Según la tradición el arzobispo bautizará al nuevo bebé en un futuro cercano.El papa Francisco llegó a Brasil como se había planeado y recibió una cálida bienvenida por autoridades gubernamentales y pueblo en general. Por un momento su seguridad estuvo en peligro pero pronto se volvió a la normalidad. En su primer acto con las autoridades brasileñas dijo no traer “ni oro ni plata, sino lo más valioso, Jesucristo”, a la vez que afirmó que la juventud es “el ventanal por donde entra el futuro en el mundo”. El papa estará cumpliendo con una apretada agenda además de su reunión con los jóvenes y residentes de una barriada pobre en Río de Janeiro. Su visita ha sido catalogada como “única” y un verdadero triunfo.Comentaristas internacionales han dicho que el papa Francisco ha abierto nuevas puertas con su gentileza, su humildad e interés por los desposeídos. Dicen que hasta ahora todo ha sido “fácil” añadiendo que hay problemas que requieren atención y que todavía no han sido tratados. Entre éstos están el celibato sacerdotal, el tratamiento a la comunidad gay, el sacerdocio femenino y otros más internos como la situación de los divorciados, los abusos sexuales y la educación de los fieles. También añaden que el papa no podrá hacer solo todo el trabajo y que tendrá que asesorarse de personas claves que tengan experiencia, conocimientos y autoridad así como expertos para evaluar y reformar la estructura económica y administrativa de la Santa Sede.Leonardo Boff, ex sacerdote brasileño fundador de la Teología de la Liberación, y con frecuencia crítico de la jerarquía católica romana que lo silenció hace un tiempo, dijo en una larga entrevista con el periódico Diario Las Américas de Miami que con la presencia del papa Francisco “he recuperado mi fe en el Vaticano”. Preguntado sobre el auge neo-pentecostal y evangélico dijo que el cristianismo de Brasil no es doctrinal sino cultural. Dada nuestra población deberíamos tener 100,000 sacerdotes pero sólo tenemos 17,000 de los cuales 7,000 son extranjeros, eso ha creado un vacío ocupado por los evangélicos. El papa Francisco “ha creado una atmósfera de alivio, de esperanza y de optimismo” afirmó.Rick Scott, gobernador de la Florida, pidió a todos los residente que dedicaran el 21 de julio como “día de oración por la unidad de la Florida”. En los por cuantos señaló los desastres naturales y el juicio absolutorio de un hombre blanco que dio muerte a un joven afro-americano de 17 años. Añadió que los residentes de este estado siempre han sabido ayudarse mutuamente y trabajar juntos en tiempos de crisis.La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana ha recordado el 75 aniversario del clérigo misionero norteamericano Charles Barnes que fue asesinado durante la era de Trujillo en 1936. Su “pecado” fue dar a conocer al mundo la matanza de miles de niños, mujeres, hombres y ancianos haitianos. El obispo Julio C. Holguín dijo que esa matanza fue “un genocidio vergonzoso para la República Dominicana”. Sus restos descansan en la Catedral de la Epifanía en Santo Domingo.El presidente ruso, Vladimir Putin, ha confesado que fue bautizado a escondidas de su padre, un obrero miembro delPartido Comunista de la Unión Soviética. Su madre una devota ortodoxa hizo los arreglos para que su bautismo tuviera lugar en la Catedral de la Santa Transfiguración de San Petersburgo, donde nació en 1952, un año antes de la muerte del dirigente soviético, José Stalin. “Recordar ese momento todavía me conmueve profundamente”, dijo Putin. El jefe del Kremlin hizo estas afirmaciones en el documental “El segundo bautizo de Rusia”, que fue transmitido por la televisión pública rusa.

Rev. Mariann Budde speaks during a memorial service for George Floyd and other victims of racist violence and police brutality. Photo: Diocese of Indianapolis[Episcopal News Service] Bishops, priests and laypeople from across The Episcopal Church gathered online on May 25 for a memorial service to mark the first anniversary of the murder of George Floyd. The multi-diocesan effort included musical performances, a message from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and a prayer of lament filmed in George Floyd Square in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where then-police officer Derek Chauvin killed Floyd by kneeling on his neck for over nine minutes on May 25, 2020.The service honored the memory of Floyd as an individual, but also as one of many people of color who have been killed by police in the United States, and also to honor the national movement to end police brutality and systemic racism that his death accelerated.“When America saw that video taken by that dear 17-year-old child, when the world saw George Floyd murdered by those charged to protect and serve, something moved,” Curry said in his sermon. “Something changed. And while we do not know how it will unfold, people began to pray with their lips and with their legs.”The liturgy, designed by Missouri Bishop Deon Johnson, opened with statements from several other bishops, putting Floyd’s death in context and affirming the church’s ongoing commitment to racial justice.“Together we stand against the tide,” said Colorado Bishop Kym Lucas. “Because no matter what may come, no matter what the tide may bring, we are here, and we are far stronger united as one, caring for our neighbors in Christ.”“Events like this ongoing viral pandemic and the pandemic of racism and violence which took the life of George Floyd and many others offer us more questions than answers,” said Michigan Bishop Bonnie Perry, “but we gather to be close to each other, to be in community, to remember. We stand with each other and with our siblings who tragically continue to lose their lives in our communities, our nation, and around the world.”A slideshow of Episcopalians at Black Lives Matter protests – including at St. John’s Church in Washington, D.C. – accompanied a performance of “He’s Got the Whole Word in His Hand” by musicians from the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Lexington, Kentucky.After a Scripture reading, Minnesota Bishop Craig Loya and the Rev. Robert Two Bulls, missioner for the Department of Indian Work and Multicultural Ministries in the Diocese of Minnesota, prayed a psalm of lament written by the Missouri bishop at the site of Floyd’s murder.The Rev. Robert Two Bulls and the Rt. Rev. Craig Loya pray during the memorial service. Photo: Diocese of Indianapolis“How lonely sits our neighborhood, O God!” they prayed. “How we weep bitterly in the night! Silent tears have become our song. ‘Gone too soon’ has become our lament.”The service was then silent for 9 minutes and 29 seconds – the amount of time that Chauvin pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck. During the silence, a slideshow played that showed Floyd’s place in a long line of African American victims of racist violence and police brutality. Dozens of faces – from recognizable names like Emmett Till, Martin Luther King Jr., Michael Brown and Breonna Taylor to lesser-known victims like Eleanor Bumpurs and Alonzo Ashley passed across the screen, punctuated by bells. The montage showed the sobering toll on African Americans that had been mounting long before Floyd’s murder.Curry, drawing from Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass in his sermon, commended Episcopalians for “praying with your lips and with your feet” by marching for change. He encouraged the church not to give up, even when the struggle seems fruitless or forgotten.“There will come a time when the world’s attention will go elsewhere,” he said. “There will come a time when there will be pushback and resistance. That is often the case. There will come a time when we will grow weak, and sometimes weary. Death after death. Shooting after shooting. Violence after violence. Nightmare after nightmare.”The job of Christians, he said, is “changing this world from the nightmare it often is into the dream that God has intended, changing and transforming human lives and social institutions.”The abolition and civil rights movements took decades of work that often seemed hopeless, he recounted, sharing the story of how his grandfather marched with other sleeping car porters in the 1940s for fair wages, equal rights and an end to lynching. But the lynchings did not end; Emmett Till’s murder in 1955 galvanized the public in a way similar to Floyd’s, he said. Till’s murder inspired Rosa Parks to stand her ground on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.“It is sometimes easy to despair and give up,” Curry said. “And while this is a normal and natural human emotion. It is not an option for us.”Standing at a memorial to Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teenager killed by police in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri, Johnson ended the service with a gesture of hope.The Rt. Rev. Deon Johnson speaks during the memorial service. Photo: Diocese of Indianapolis“A single light has the power to dispel even the longest shadow,” he said, lighting a candle and sharing the flame with others gathered there. Standing in front of St. John’s Church in Washington, Bishop Mariann Budde did the same. Then other groups from dioceses and seminaries across the U.S. and Canada held up their candles on Zoom, showing the progression of the flame into the world.“As we share the light from these many flames, may these candles be symbols of our burning hope and our shining light, that we may act out of hope and compassion to mourn with those who grieve,” Johnson said.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

  • School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 4, The Finale

    first_imgFriday Jan 31, 2014 School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 4, The Finale We’ve dragged things out a bit but today you can watch the final episode of the 2013 School of Hard Knocks, which follows a group of youngsters from Glasgow in their quest for self-improvement, a better understanding of the game of rugby, and employment. It was another brilliant series, perhaps one of the best and another great example of how the values shared and lessons learned in rugby can be applied to everyday life.“Rugby’s a lot like life – you’ve got to keep going forward, going through it, standing your ground and fighting for things,” said one of the newcomers to the sport in the intro.In this, the finale, the boys come together after eight weeks of hard work and preparation for their final match. Perhaps more importantly, they also go to the jobs fair where they set out to impress and ultimately find new employment.Scott Quinnell, Will Greenwood and coach Chris Chudleigh are at their inspirational best, providing us with another emotional episode, while Scotland lock Ali Kellock is never too far away.If you enjoyed the series please share with your friends, and also let us know below. Once again, it’s not only a great rugby show, but one of the better pieces of reality TV out there (view Related Posts for previous episodes).

Concrete sculpture set in the landscape.The living area of this single-storey home is deliberately concentrated within this square so that the rest of the property remains “untouched“ and is incorporated into its natural environment. A perpendicular line splits the constructed triangle into a further 2 parts. The right side – the night zone – is fitted with secondary functions. The left side is the living zone and has been left as ‘open’ as possible.Save this picture!© Philippe Van GeloovenThe back of the house, or diagonal line, is made entirely out of sliding and fixed glass panels that incorporate the terrace completely into the home, and all adjoining rooms enjoy an uninterrupted view of the landscape. Privacy is ensured by a sloped wall that encloses the terrace and gradually blends into the landscape.Save this picture!© Philippe Van GeloovenSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Philippe Van GeloovenOn the one hand concrete was chosen as an honest, durable material and therefore left as visibly exposed as possible. On the other hand concrete was used to create a compact home with long-term, responsible low-energy consumption. The home is architectural concrete cast in situ, an irreversible process, with all the details worked out meticulously beforehand. A good working relationship and open dialogue with the concrete contractor, civil engineering firm and client also added value to the project.Save this picture!© Philippe Van GeloovenExtremely smooth formwork panels were sought for the construction which produced a perfect result. The interior walls and hollow-core slabs were left visible and complimented with a concrete floor and long dining table in the same material. Two domes cast in concrete guide light into the interior. The exterior woodwork is completely concealed behind the concrete, creating a frameless view.Save this picture!© Philippe Van GeloovenProject gallerySee allShow lessRebuilding Sandy Hook: How Svigals + Partners’ Design Offers Safety and SolaceArchitecture NewsINNOCAD Founder Martin Lesjak Named Contract’s Designer of the Year 2015Architecture News Share Roofing: Belgium House CM Sint-Truiden / MASS Architects Photographs Houses photographs:  Philippe Van GeloovenPhotographs:  Philippe Van Gelooven Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/594835/house-cm-sint-truiden-mass-architects Clipboard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/594835/house-cm-sint-truiden-mass-architects Clipboard 2013 Projects “COPY”center_img ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeMASS ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSint-TruidenHousesBelgiumPublished on February 05, 2015Cite: “House CM Sint-Truiden / MASS Architects” 05 Feb 2015.
