Malouf high shot on Wade met ‘red card threshold’ according to panel

first_imgWednesday Mar 28, 2018 Malouf high shot on Wade met ‘red card threshold’ according to panel Leicester Tigers replacement back Nicholas Malouf has been sanctioned for the high tackle he made on Christian Made during Sunday’s Aviva Premiership contest. He was cited then last night received the bad news. Malouf was only on the field because Wade himself had knocked out winger Jonny May after a strong carry. May was out cold, so left the field, with Malouf his replacement. Ten minutes later, Malouf came in for the tackle as Wade attempted to spread the ball wide, but made contact with the Wasps flyer’s head as he turned into the tackle. After pleading guilty to the charge, an independant disciplinary panel handed down a three-week suspension, meaning he is only free to play again on 17 April 2018. “The player accepted that he had committed an act of foul play which passed the red card test,” panel chair John Brennan said. “The panel found that the player had struck the Wasps player’s head. This required a mid-range entry point in accordance with the sanction table.“Given the player’s guilty plea and his clean disciplinary record the panel allowed full mitigation of 50%. He was suspended for a period of three weeks.”The challenge appeared to be at chest height but with Wade moving down slightly and Malouf fairly unsighted, his shoulder made contact with Wade’s face or chin. Therefore, he was fortunate to not be red carded on the day, as the TMO and referee took a fairly lenient stance. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

When the artist Jennifer Bartlett decided to leave her longtime studio in New York’s Greenwich Village for Brooklyn, she found an old industrial building in the historic Clinton Hill District. The 19th century masonry structure most recently had been converted into a day care center—as the Medgar Evers Headstart Child Development Center—but before that it was a union headquarters, home to the Candy & Confectioners Workers Local 452, whose name remained carved above the front door.Save this picture!© David BerridgeThe 5,200-square-foot two-story building had a unique character, with a generous tree-filled rear yard and a 22-foot-wide side yard that provided abundant natural light on three sides of the building in an otherwise dense urban cityscape.Save this picture!© Adam FriedbergThe demolition of the upper floor, which had been carved up into many small rooms, revealed an expansive loft with an assortment of old skylights, while the gutting of the ground floor uncovered what had been the uniquely-engineered union meeting hall, with a steel beam spanning 45 feet.Save this picture!© Adam FriedbergBartlett’s living and creative life are so entwined that there is no distinction between work/home. That idea governed the creation of spaces that flow from reception/administration to gallery/studio,  cooking/eating, sleeping/bathing, all opening onto a garden designed by the artist, with water and rock features. Two 30-foot by 35-foot open galleries/work studios, one centered on each floor, permit artwork to be created and viewed throughout the entire building. Save this picture!© Adam FriedbergWorking closely with Bartlett, architect Berridge employed a deceptively simple gallery aesthetic in his design and renovation of the building, with little desire to provoke undue attention. But one particular detail, evoking some of Bartlett’s well-known work, was the incorporation of Mexican tiles on the wall of each wet area, using 15 different custom colors, particularly arranged by the artist for each space.Save this picture!© Adam FriedbergAnother accent of note is a 37- foot- long solid walnut counter on top of stainless steel cabinets in the kitchen area. This unites the dining, cooking and social spaces that run the length of the front façade on the upper floor. Furnishings include Hoffman dining chairs and the custom plywood sofa Bartlett designed for her previous home. Her former studio in Greenwich Village, with its pool in the sleeping area, and her onetime stylish Paris apartment, were frequently photographed and published. Here is the first look at the latest home the artist has created, this time with the New Zealand-born New York architect David Berridge.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Woolworth Building @ 100 ExhibtionEventFashion Mogul Commissions OMA to Convert Venice PalazzoArchitecture News Share photographs:  Adam Friedberg, David BerridgePhotographs:  Adam Friedberg, David Berridge+ 13 Share Year:  Brooklyn Studio / David Berridge ArchitectSave this projectSaveBrooklyn Studio / David Berridge ArchitectSave this picture!© Adam FriedbergHouses•Brooklyn, United States ArchDaily Houses 2008 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

SIMONSZ Residential Building / Ronald Janssen Architects

In a narrow street in Amsterdam’s Weteringbuurt, between former factories, schools, business premises and weavers’ houses, stands a new residential building containing 19 apartments: Simonzs, designed by Ronald Janssen Architecten. Large vertical concrete slabs give the building the solid, imposing look of a structure that has always been here and always will be. Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe size of this large residential building on Fokke Simonszstraat harks back to the school and later homeless shelter that previously stood on this spot. The entrance to the residences has been placed at the centre of the complex, enhancing its monumental character. Meanwhile, the 44-metre-long facade has been articulated to harmonise with the adjoining structures. On the top storey, it recedes at several points, continuing the rhythm of the street’s narrow buildings.Save this picture!© Simone BossiSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Simone BossiCloser inspection reveals another change in scale: the concrete slabs are narrow and deep near ground level and become wider and shallower as they ascend. As a result, the ground-floor residences are slightly set back from the street. The windows on the top storeys are almost flush with the facade, while those at street level are recessed. The facade therefore appears to lean forward slightly, making playful reference to Amsterdam’s many slanting historical houses.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe interiors of the 19 apartments are bathed in natural light thanks to the huge windows. These are placed at an angle to the building line to afford good views of the street and add dynamism to the building. When the windows on the upper storeys are opened fully, the city flows in, and the living space becomes a spacious balcony. The plinth is raised so that each ground-floor flat has a basement and a first floor, creating an open living space with many possible layouts.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe back of the building is peaceful. The rear facade has been placed at a distance from the block behind to create an outdoor space. The ground-floor flats have back patios, making them ideal for families. The apartments on the upper floors have loggias on a gallery. All the outdoor spaces look out on a green wall, which affords good acoustics and a pleasant climate. Simonzs’ design shows careful attention to detail.Save this picture!© Simone BossiArchitect Ronald Janssen has cleverly made use of the fact that, owing to the narrowness of the street, the building is always seen at an angle, never frontally. All edges have been expertly smoothed away. The window casings, mailboxes and intercoms as well as the glass are bronze in colour. Nothing here has been left to chance.Save this picture!© Simone BossiProject gallerySee allShow lessGabriela Hearst Store London / Foster + PartnersSelected ProjectsKliment Halsband Architects on Its New Ugandan Surgical FacilityInterviewsProject locationAddress:Fokke Simonszstraat 61, 1017 TE Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Defiant protesters challenge the Biden administration in Buffalo, N.Y.

first_imgBuffalo, N.Y.Jan. 21 — On Biden’s first full day as president of the U.S. empire, activists and community members here wasted no time in putting pressure on his administration. At a demonstration called by Workers World Party-Buffalo, people gathered at the corner of Niagara Street and Porter Avenue to voice their demands.Activist David Louis spoke of the need for protesters to stop asking Biden for change and instead organize for the change we want ourselves — highlighting the fact that many basic demands for equality have been raised for hundreds of years, and neither major political party has acted on these changes.Demands raised today included ending all wars and sanctions, ending the blockade on Cuba, closing prisons and abolishing ICE and the police, immediate COVID relief for workers, Medicare for All, paid sick leave, cancellation of rent and student loan debt, the end of all fracking and oil pipeline construction, and free unrestricted access to abortion.The exciting lineup of speakers from many organizations and causes included India Walton, local activist and a mayoral candidate; labor organizer Mary Lister from Queen City Workers center; activist and mental health care advocate Shaima Aakil; anti-police violence activist Myles Carter; immigrant activist Kawiye Jumale; LGBTQ+ activist Ezra Echo from Workers World Party; Marie Schuster and Chuck Culhane from the WNY Peace Center and more.Based on Biden’s 40 year record, it’s clear the Biden administration will not proactively fight for measures that would benefit the working class. Any substantial gains desired by workers and oppressed peoples will need to be fought for as hard as they were fought for under Trump — if not harder. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A guide to designing your graduation cap

first_imgRecord number of participants in this year’s Dance Marathon A look into the Rho Gamma application process Previous articleThe road to opioid abuse: Prescription drugsNext articleStar pitcher to make return against Dallas Baptist Riley Knight RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Facebook Riley Knight Twitter + posts Riley Knight Facebook ReddIt printThis story was initially published May 3, 2018, but this design can be used for 2019 graduating seniors.Update – May 4, 2018: We have a new graduation cap design video. Check it out! Riley Knight The Leap: Staying on campus during Easter? We’ve got you covered TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history If you’re an artistic type who has been planning your graduation cap since the day you received your TCU acceptance letter, you can stop reading now.If you cringe at the thought of drawing anything other than a stick figure, don’t worry — here’s a step-by-step, foolproof guide to decorating you graduation cap.So, to create a graduation cap that will rival the Mona Lisa, you will need a few materials.Materials:Construction paper/Decorative PaperHot glue gun and glue sticksScissorsRulerPaintExtra: jewels, glitter, stickers, markersMy materials for the demo.Step 1:To start, measure your graduation cap with a ruler and cut the paper to match the dimensions. Since I’m a sophomore and don’t necessarily have a graduation cap, I’m using the construction paper as a makeshift cap. Using the hot glue gun, glue the paper to the top of the hat. Hopefully, by now you have a general idea of how you want your masterpiece to look.Step 2:Using your ruler or a stencil, sketch out your design with a pencil. Once you are satisfied with your design, break out the paint. Paint or color in your design (however your heart desires). For paint, it is best to use two coats for a smoother, finished look.Step 3:Now for the fun part… Here is where you get to personalize your cap. Using my hot glue gun, I glued jewels on the edge of my cap and around the letters. After adding your personal flourish, sit back and admire your work.Of course, each cap will be different and personal to each graduate. For those who are struggling to come up with a design, here’s a list of possible themes to get those creative juices flowing.Pizza theme – Decorate your cap as a large pizza slice to symbolize the amount of Toppers you’ve consumed in your four years.TV show theme – Proudly own your Netflix obsession by modeling your cap after your favorite show, which you may or may not spend hours binge-watching.Current events theme – Nothing will remind you more of your wonderful senior year like dedicating your cap to what is going on in the news. Try a wonderful Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton theme – oh, senior memories.Social Media handle theme – Rack up those follows while accepting your diploma by putting your Twitter handle or Instagram username in large letters. Bonus points if you actually gain followers.Nothing – You can always go against the crowd by doing absolutely nothing to your cap. No decorations, no anything. Nothing says, “I’m over it, get me out of here,” like a blank graduation cap.
