Cambridge beat Oxford in the 128th Varsity Match

first_imgMonday Dec 14, 2009 Cambridge beat Oxford in the 128th Varsity Match Former Wallaby lock Dan Vickerman led Cambridge to a 31-27 victory over Oxford in the annual Varsity Match at Twickenham on Thursday. It was the 128th meeting between the two prestigious University sides, a tradition that dates back to 1872.Some famous players have turned out for the two sides over the years. Most notably David Kirk, former All Blacks captain; Nick Mallet, former Springbok player and coach, now with Italy; former England flyhalf Rob Andrew; Wallaby wing Joe Roff, who captained Oxford in 2007, and more recently, Simon Danielli of Scotland.Last year former All Black hooker Anton Oliver played an instrumental part in Oxfords win over Cambridge, and this year other internationals on display were Canadian flanker Stan McKeen and former USA scrumhalf Doug Rowe.On the coaching staff, Oxford had Brian Ashton in charge, while Cambridge had the services of Shaun Edwards to help out with their defence.Dan Vickerman, who is doing a three-year Land Economy course, took part in last years loss for Cambridge so he was hoping to avenge it this time around. His team did just that, meaning that they have now won the traditional battle 61 times and Oxford 53, with 14 draws.”In my career, I’ve had the opportunity to learn from some seriously good players – George Gregan, Phil Waugh, Steve Larkham,” Vickerman said. ”Hopefully you can pass on a bit of that knowledge to some of the younger guys.”Despite having ambitions to play in next years 129th match, players can only captain their side once, making the win for Vickerman that much sweeter.”That’s the unique thing about it, you get one opportunity to captain the side and you don’t want to go out losing that one, so I’m just pretty happy we could put the best performance on and so down the track, when I’m old and grumpy, we had a win,” he said.”These sort of games epitomise why we play rugby, for the enjoyment. It’s an amateur game and everybody out there is putting their body on the line and enjoying what they’re doing and I couldn’t ask for any more.”Rugby is about winning, no matter what level you play at, and for me, winning out there was pretty special,” Vickerman said.

This house is conceived from the commission of a couple with two children, in a 596.8 m2 site located in a consolidated residential sector in Pedro de Valdivia, Concepción. The family considered the demolition of the existing house and the preservation of the vegetation, particularly a 7m high palm tree, located at the centre, that went on to determine the project of the house in the site. This was developed particularly from two volumes of one and two levels, set back from the street that configured a more hermetic façade towards the public space, providing privacy, and simultaneously a greater openness towards the interior and familiar activities.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Cristóbal CaroAs a general strategy the proposal can be expressed through its simplicity in two main aspects. The first is the interior patio, contained, in which the palm tree of the site is found, providing vitality and converting the space into the heart of the house thanks to its singularity. It is here that it is possible to appreciate and visually control all the activities developed in the house and its different uses: living room, dining room, kitchen and services on the one hand, and family room and bed rooms on the other. The following aspect is constituted by the implantation of the house on the site, that is, its distribution in two large areas or volumes: one of them public, where accesses, services and dining room are found; another more intimate and contained, towards the interior of the site, where the family room and the terrace are found on the first storey and three bed rooms and services on the second. Both sectors are linked by an enclosed corridor which is panoramic, 13m long and that evidences the family activities, both interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroSave this picture!© Cristóbal CaroIn spite of the enclosure of the entrance volume towards the street, and therefore to the North orientation, there is a sky light above that correctly lights the communal and permanent areas. In a similar way, proposing the second block on two levels the bed rooms of the higher storey have good views and are well lit. The building is thought out from simple structural criteria such as reinforced concrete in the first storey and a light steel structure on the second, with sober stone materials and textures that are well incorporated into its residential context of 1 and 2 storey houses and conventional housing typologies.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroProject gallerySee allShow lessJ House / FRARI – architecture networkSelected ProjectsMarket Street Hotel / JmarchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932708/casa-de-la-palmera-prado-arquitectos Clipboard Projects 2019last_img read more

Located high on the Cosme Velho neighborhood, the Itamonte Garage project was guided by the flexibility of the program and spaces. The 70m² area, previously used as a large warehouse, had only one room, a small bathroom, and a garage with poor lighting and ventilation. Aiming to accommodate a craft beer brewery, the space was modified, becoming one large room with an open kitchen, one suite, one bathroom, and a utility room.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThis current purpose can change in the next few years, either by the possibility of it becoming an independent apartment for rent or going back to its former use as a garage.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!Isometric drawingSave this picture!© Federico CairoliTo reduce costs and meet the requested deadline, the construction was managed by the head office and started while the working drawings were still unfinished. This dynamic enabled a closer dialogue with the team, resulting in substantial modifications throughout the process, such as the opening of windows for lighting, the discovery of materials covered by old double walls, and testing for color palettes and other materials. The Itamonte Garage renovation, therefore, was characterized by continuous redesigning that allowed the preexisting elements of the space to be highlighted.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessFundraiser Design Competition: Post Pandemic Performances-Gatherings in the times of…IdeasArchitecture of Exhibition Spaces: 23 Art Galleries around the WorldArticlesProject locationAddress:Cosme Velho, Rio de Janeiro – Estado do Rio de Janeiro, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

JustGiving reveals individual fundraisers reach 562 people on Facebook

first_imgThe event fundraising network effectAs well as reaching a large network of individuals via Facebook, many of whom are not existing supporters of the charity, individual fundraisers often inspire others to follow in their footsteps and fill places at future events. JustGiving has found that nearly one in four fundraisers will either take part in the same event for charity the next year or inspire a friend or family member to take part.This conclusion was based on a study of four major fundraising events held during 2010 and 2011. JustGiving analysed the fundraising activity of fundraisers and their sponsors in the next year. In total, 12% of fundraisers raise money for the same event in the subsequent year, while a further 11% of all sponsors of those fundraisers go on to fundraise for the same event in the subsequent year.Delegates at the event got to see demonstrations of JustGiving and ACTIVE Network’s integrated event registration and fundraising tool for UK charities and event partners.Howard Bell, Director of Partnerships at JustGiving, said: “We’ve been exploring the fundraising network effect – the idea that by participating in an event, fundraisers actually encourage their friends and families to do likewise. This data shows that not only do event fundraisers have a large online social reach, they act as inspiration for others, bringing in new advocates for their charity and new participants for their chosen event. By encouraging fundraising, event organisers give themselves a powerful word of mouth marketing tool.”Sejal Pietrzak, SVP of International at ACTIVE Network, added: “We’ve found that friends and family are huge motivators in not only participating in an event, but also fundraising, and that social media’s ability to foster participation is a critical component”.PresentationYesterday’s conference presentation has been shared by JustGiving: Online fundraising service JustGiving reports that individual fundraisers taking part in organised events reach on average 562 people on Facebook. In addition they help inspire others to take part in the same event.The statistics were based on internal justGiving data for over 300,000 fundraising pages, combined with additional data from Google Analytics and Facebook Insights.The scale of impact of the event fundraising ‘network effect’ was explained at yesterday’s conference ‘Making every step count: How to maximize participation and fundraising at your event’. Held at The Commonwealth Club in London by JustGiving and ACTIVE Network, the conference shared event fundraising insights with an audience of charity fundraisers and event organisers.

Protesters denounce war criminal Poroshenko

first_imgUndeterred by rain, New Yorkers came out to protest a speech by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on the campus of Columbia University on Sept. 29. They loudly chanted: “U.S. out of Ukraine! Fascists off the campus!”People left work and school early to join the demonstration. They included members of the Ukrainian and Russian immigrant communities, Harlem residents, and members of anti-fascist and anti-war organizations.Holding signs with Poroshenko’s photo and the words “Wanted for War Crimes,” the protesters informed Columbia students, workers and residents of the West Harlem neighborhood about why the Ukrainian oligarch should be standing in front of a war crimes tribunal, instead of being given the red carpet treatment by a university.Signs and leaflets laid out the charges against Poroshenko: his responsibility for more than 7,000 deaths in the war against the independent Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics; forcing 1.3 million people to become refugees; jailing journalists and political opponents; banning communist ideology while celebrating fascist collaborators; violations of the Minsk 2 ceasefire agreement, including shelling and terror attacks aimed at hospitals, schools and other civilian targets; and acting as the agent of Wall Street and Washington to impose austerity and NATO expansion.Protesters also carried flags of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Ghost Brigade of the Novorossiyan people’s militia, the Ukrainian communist organization Borotba and the Soviet flag of victory, symbolizing the triumph over fascism in World War II. Carrying any of those flags in Poroshenko’s Ukraine would result in arrest — or worse.The New York Police Department escorted Poroshenko onto the campus by a side street to avoid the protesters. But when his motorcade pulled up to Low Library, people raised their voices to make sure he heard them chanting: “Poroshenko! You can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!”“We are here not only to condemn Poroshenko,” declared Greg Butterfield of the International Action Center. “We are here to condemn Columbia University President Lee Bollinger for giving this war criminal a platform to spread his lies about ‘Russian aggression’ in Donbass. We are here to demand that President Obama, Senator John McCain and other high officials in Washington stop funding and arming Poroshenko’s fascist junta.”Longtime Harlem activist Nellie Bailey drew the connection between Columbia University’s gentrification policies, aimed at driving African-American residents out of the neighborhood, and its promotion of far right-wing and neoliberal regimes like Poroshenko’s.Protesters successfully faced down several provocations by Ukrainian fascists.A Poroshenko supporter attempted to tear down the flag of the Donetsk People’s Republic. When this failed, a member of Poroshenko’s security detail physically assaulted a protester who was handing out leaflets. A second protester intervened to stop the assault, since police refused to. The police shielded the violent fascist, but gave a summons for “disorderly conduct” to the activist who stopped the attack!The provocateur who tried to tear down the flag was later identified as Peter Zalmayev, executive director of an organization called the “Eurasia Democracy Initiative” and director of the Eurasia Institute at Columbia University. Zalmayev kept coming back after the assault, shouting that the anti-Poroshenko protesters were “paid agents.” But it seems he, in fact, is a very well paid functionary of the junta and U.S. imperialism. Zalmayev’s Facebook page shows him meeting with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and frequently appearing on pro-Poroshenko media.Butterfield said: “We’re inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the people of Donbass and Ukrainian anti-fascists who continue fighting for liberation. We will continue to stand with them against the Kiev junta and U.S. imperialism.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Allegedly, at the same time, a large mob, including lawyers, entered the courtroom and surrounded the applicant and the complainant’s counsel in order to threaten and intimidate them. Further, the affidavit narrated that on account of this ruckus created by the Advocate and mob which included lawyers and others, the P.Ws could not properly depose on account of fear for their life and security. Also, when after some time the proceedings were resumed, another Advocate entered the courtroom and he also issued threats to the complainant’s counsel and thus, in these circumstances, the Presiding Officer was forced to stop the proceedings.

US Virgin Islands wants Jeffrey Epstein-related documents from NY hedge fund billionaire

first_imgFlorida Dept. of Law EnforcementBy JAMES HILL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The U.S. Virgin Islands government, in an expanding investigation into the alleged sex trafficking enterprise of Jeffrey Epstein, is seeking documents related to the late financier from billionaire businessman and philanthropist Glenn Dubin, his wife and his former investment firm, according to court filings in the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands in St. Thomas.Dubin, a New Yorker whose net worth is estimated by Forbes at $2 billion, has come under scrutiny for his alleged long-running professional and personal ties to Epstein, who was charged last year in an alleged child sex trafficking conspiracy and later died in prison.The subpoenas, which are dated Sept. 3, seek documents relating to financial transactions and communications between the Dubins and Epstein, or any related entities and associates from 1998 to the present day. One request asks specifically for information about “three wire transfers between 2014 and 2016.”A separate subpoena seeks records from Highbridge Capital, an investment fund that was led by Dubin until 2013.In January, Denise George, the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands, sued the $655 million Epstein estate and a group of shell companies that control his wealth and real estate holdings around the world. The complaint alleges that Esptein created a network of companies and individuals who participated in and conspired with him in a pattern of criminal activity related to alleged sex trafficking of minor girls and young women.The subpoenas for information from the Dubins represent the latest aggressive move by George in her effort to pull back the curtain of secrecy that surrounded Epstein’s enormous wealth. In July, the territory’s government sought years of records related to Epstein from at least 10 financial institutions, including JPMorgan Chase, Citibank and Deutsche Bank.Epstein purchased the private island “Little St. James” in 1998 and established the Virgin Islands as his permanent residence in 2010. He later acquired ownership of a neighboring island, “Great St. James,” and was in the process of building a new estate there at the time of his arrest, according to court and property records.Epstein’s connection to the Dubins dates back to the early 1980s, when the Brooklyn-born Epstein began dating then 20-year-old Eva Andersson, according to a letter written by Epstein’s defense attorneys and provided to a Florida state prosecutor during plea negotiations in 2008. Andersson is a former Swedish model who went on to become a doctor and, later, Dubin’s wife.According to a biographical sketch of Epstein in the lawyers’ letter, Epstein provided financial support for Andersson to attend medical schools in Sweden and California. They were romantically linked for 11 years and remained close friends even after it became clear that “the demands of Jeffrey’s life could not include staying in one place and having a family,” the lawyers wrote. The letter was obtained by ABC News through a public records request to the office of the state’s attorney in Palm Beach County, Florida.“Today, [Jeffrey] is a very close and important friend to my family,” the letter quotes Andersson-Dubin as saying. “He is the godfather of my three children and is a close friend of my husband as well.”After Epstein served time in Palm Beach County Jail and was registered as a sex offender, Andersson-Dubin maintained contact. In 2009, shortly after Epstein’s release from jail, she wrote an email to Epstein’s probation officer to attest that she was “100% comfortable” with Epstein being around her three children, who were then all under the age of 18, according to a copy of the email in the files of the county sheriff.The Dubins reportedly spent Thanksgiving with Epstein that year, according to stories published in Vanity Fair and Business Insider.A spokesperson for the Dubins, in response to an email with specific questions about those communications and the subjects raised in the subpoenas, sent this statement to ABC News: “The Dubins have previously said that they are horrified by and were completely unaware of Jeffrey Epstein’s unspeakable conduct.”Dubin has also denied allegations that he had any sexual contact with alleged Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who testified in a deposition in 2016 that Dubin was among several prominent men she had sex with at the direction of Epstein and another of his longtime companions, Ghislaine Maxwell. Maxwell also denied those allegations in a deposition, calling Giuffre an “absolute liar.”The subpoenas from the Virgin Islands seek records from the Dubins regarding Giuffre and the Dubins’ travel on private jets with Epstein and Maxwell. According to Epstein’s pilot’s logs that have previously been made public, one or both of the Dubins flew on Epstein’s planes at least 18 times between 1996 and 2005, often accompanied by their children and a nanny. Maxwell is also listed as a passenger on 13 of those flights, according to the logs.Maxwell is currently under indictment in New York for allegedly facilitating and, in some instances, participating in Epstein’s grooming and abuse of three girls between 1994 and 1997. She is also under investigation in the Virgin Islands for her alleged role in Epstein’s operation, according to July court filings by the attorney general. An attorney for Maxwell did not respond to inquiries when ABC News reported on the U.S. Virgin Islands investigation in July.The subpoenas for the Dubins were posted to the Virgin Islands court docket this week. The documents are addressed to a 5th Avenue penthouse that overlooks Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art. The apartment, which is reportedly the former residence of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, was purchased by the Dubins for about $30 million, according to a 2006 report in the New York Observer.Maxwell pleaded not guilty to all charges in New York. She is currently being held without bail in a federal prison in Brooklyn. A trial is scheduled for next summer.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Radar absorption due to impurities in Antarctic ice

first_imgMeasurements of radar echo strength have been carried out on Ronne and George VI Ice Shelves, Antarctica. The differences in ice-column absorption between the two sites cannot be resolved by considering ice temperatures alone. We present an absorption model that resolves the discrepancy by considering both the ice temperature and the ice impurity concentrations. In Antarctic coastal sites the concentrations of acid and sea salt impurities, both of which affect absorption, have a marked spatial variability and can dominate the absorption budget. Using the absorption model, impurity levels in the ice column at the George VI site are deduced from the radar strength measurements and found to be typical of levels measured in Antarctic ice at similar elevations and distances from the sea. In particular the measurements suggest that the concentrations of biogenically-derived acids are much lower than the unusually high levels found on the east coast of the Antarctic Peninsula.last_img read more
