Johan Goosen finishes classic Cheetahs try vs the Crusaders

first_imgSaturday Mar 31, 2012 Johan Goosen finishes classic Cheetahs try vs the Crusaders The Cheetahs pulled off an impressive upset win over the Hurricanes in Wellington earlier today, which was a reminder that this classic team effort from them last weekend wasn’t featured during the week. So here it is. No doubt a contender for try of the season, the Cheetahs turned it on against the Crusaders last weekend and actually were in the game, threatening a bit of an upset at one stage.The class of the home side came through, but not before the talented guys from Bloemfontein produced this fantastic try, which featured star flyhalf Johan Goosen twice in the move.Wing Willie le Roux and center Andries Strauss were prominent, and it came about mainly due to the attacking attitude the Cheetahs have embraced in this campaign. Today, in Round 6, they were rewarded for their endeavour with a very impressive 47-38 win over the Hurricanes.The Cheetahs were behind 32-10 with ten minutes left in the first half, before they pulled things back and went into the break tied at 32-32.We’ll get highlights of that game up in the archived Super Rugby Highlights section tomorrow, but for now here’s a look at this classic from Round 5, a brilliant example of running into space and offloading in the tackle, letting the ball do the work to beat the man.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Casa Tersicore was built in Milan, near the Naviglio Grande. On the street, the body of the building is four stories high, which bends around the corner, and then rises seven stories high in a type of turret. The ground floor of the building is set slightly back from the edge of the loggia on the first and second floors. This loggia runs along both the street front and on the side orthogonal to it, towards the interior of the lot.Save this picture!© Maurizio MontagnaThe decorative suspended pilasters (lesene) of the loggia, 15cm thick and variable in width, are designed in a slowed perspective (prospettiva rallentata), so that on the long side viewed from the street they appear equidistant because of the perspectival view, while in reality, their intercolumniation is progressively greater as they get further away from the street.Save this picture!© Maurizio MontagnaSave this picture!Type planSave this picture!© Maurizio MontagnaThe loggia is overlaid with slender metal frames, with a 6cm side square section. The frame modulation is uniform and therefore inconsistent with respect to the incremental rhythm of the decorative pilasters of the loggia. The metal frames envelop the turret with a solution of continuity on each side so that the volume can be read alternatively as a unit or as a single partition of it. Similar solutions of continuity also characterize the design of the frames on the third floor set back from the street. An ideal continuity can be mentally reconstructed by projecting the lines in the intervals between the parts of the frame, like the altanella positioned on the corner.Save this picture!© Maurizio MontagnaBy changing the point of view, or when you are on the top-floor terraces enveloped by frames, you have the impression of being inside a very transparent interior or outside but in a sheltered setting – in any case, in the open air. Casa Tersicore carries on the research of modern Milanese buildings, including those on Via Fatebenefratelli by Mozzoni and Ghidini, on Via Lanzone by the Latis brothers, on Via Anelli by Giancarlo Malchiodi, on 26 viale Beatrice d’Este by Perogalli and Mariani, among others.Save this picture!© Maurizio MontagnaSave this picture!© Maurizio MontagnaProject gallerySee allShow lessCovid-19 Has Raised the Question: Why Do We Design Buildings?ArticlesVanity Affair Apartment / Fast and Furious Production OfficeSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/947488/casa-tersicore-degli-esposti-architetti Clipboard Area:  2150 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Maurizio Montagna+ 20Curated by Paula Pintos Sharecenter_img Projects General Contractors: Photographs:  Maurizio Montagna 2018 ArchDaily Houses Italy Architects: Degli Esposti Architetti Area Area of this architecture project Casa Tersicore / Degli Esposti ArchitettiSave this projectSaveCasa Tersicore / Degli Esposti Architetti CopyHouses•Milano, Italy CopyAbout this officeDegli Esposti ArchitettiOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookMilanoItalyPublished on September 11, 2020Cite: “Casa Tersicore / Degli Esposti Architetti” 11 Sep 2020.

WWP candidates on San Bernardino: ‘Imperialist wars breed racism, violence’

first_imgWorkers World Party candidates Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly, running in the 2016 national election for president and vice president, issued the following statement on Dec. 4 regarding the most recent mass shootings in the United States, this time in San Bernardino, Calif.As revolutionary socialists committed to the struggle to getting rid of this rotting capitalist system, we are horrified and saddened at the latest explosion of violence in this country. This time it was at a holiday luncheon of San Bernardino County Health Department workers held in a center for the care of people with disabilities. The attack left 14 dead and even more wounded.At this point, we have only the official narrative to rely on regarding what happened. Therefore, we must proceed with caution, given the history of endemic twisting of facts and outright lies by police authorities, particularly when people of color are involved. This has been proven again and again by videos and brought to public attention by the courageous struggles of the Black Lives Matter movement. Nevertheless, while we do not just accept the word of the FBI and local police as good coin, we can subject what they are saying to examination. They say that one of the workers, Syed Rizwan Farook, left the festive gathering and then returned with Tashfeen Malik, his spouse and mother of their small child, the two of them wielding military-style weapons and proceeding to shoot indiscriminately into the crowd. If this scenario is really true, then how is this kind of terrible, unpredictable slaughter to be prevented in the future?We know what the answer of the liberal politicians is: stiffer gun control. However, California already has the most restrictive gun laws of any state! The answer of hardcore right-wingers is to impose Draconian anti-immigrant laws and strengthen state repression in this country, which already has the highest rate of mass incarceration in the world and spends billions of dollars on uniformed and plainclothes police of every kind, ramping up the military arsenals at their disposal.Both these reactions will only make things worse for the multinational working class here, especially people of color and immigrants who are leading the struggle against poverty wages.The FBI claims there were two shooters, the young Muslim married couple, although early reports spoke of three. Both the accused were killed by police in a hail of bullets, meaning we will never hear what they might have had to say.This leaves the field free for official speculation that this was an “act of terrorism,” similar to others that have happened in recent months in France, Lebanon, Syria and other parts of the world. Already there is pressure to intensify the bombing of Syria by the U.S. and other NATO powers, ostensibly aimed at the Islamic State group. However, the openly stated U.S. position all along has been to topple the elected government of Syria, which has also been under fierce attack by the Islamic State. If reports about FBI speculation turn out to be true, then all the more reason NOT to widen the war against Muslims and other people of the oil-rich Middle East, North Africa and West Asia. Intensifying hatred of the imperialists doesn’t come out of thin air. These destructive wars — instigated and directed by the multibillion-dollar oil and banking interests in the U.S. and other imperialist countries — have killed hundreds of thousands and driven millions of desperate people from their homes. Capitalist politicians and the gutter media then unleash a tide of Muslim-bashing to justify the horrors the wars have produced.The working people of the United States didn’t create imperialism. We are its victims, too. The best thing we can do is reject prejudices and warmongering, and instead build multinational unity in the struggle against the class of exploiters who put our lives at risk every day in their vile drive to amass obscene fortunes and dominate the whole world. Say “no!” to Islamophobia! U.S. out of the Middle East! Stop police terror against Black and Brown peoples!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bringing Resiliency to the Food Supply Chain ISDA’s Top Priority

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleGetting a Premium for High Oleic SoybeansNext articleIndiana Soybeans 63%, Corn 61% Good to Excellent Eric Pfeiffer Bringing Resiliency to the Food Supply Chain ISDA’s Top Priority By Eric Pfeiffer – Sep 8, 2020 Home Indiana Agriculture News Bringing Resiliency to the Food Supply Chain ISDA’s Top Priority The Indiana State Department of Agriculture has a new road map going forward as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. ISDA’s “Rural Road to Recovery” lists out four priorities of the department. The first is to assess and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the food system.ISDA Director Bruce Kettler says the food supply chain was pretty resilient, but it wasn’t perfect. They’re working to add more capacity.“We are currently doing a lot of work with the small and medium sized processors in the state of Indiana to figure out what we can do and change. Those folks will tell you they’re still booked out a year, in some cases a year and a half, currently as we work through this.”Kettler adds though that you can’t just add capacity immediately.“One, you’ve got to be able to build buildings and facilities to be able to make that happen. You’ve also got to be able to find people that you can train to bring into those facilities.”Kettler says food safety will remain the number one priority.“Well, we know we’ve got to add resiliency and bring in more capacity. We can’t do it, and dare I say won’t do it, at the expense of making sure that that food is brought to people safely. There’s a good reason we have inspection services and people that are trained to do that. They have to be able to do it safely, and I think most people would understand we don’t want to do this at the expense of having people have unsafe food. They don’t want that. They expect the food to be safe and should expect that it’ll be safe.”Other priorities of ISDA’s “Rural Road to Recovery” plan include expanding broadband access, expanding access to information about personal health and financial stability of farmers and agribusinesses, and strengthening the pipeline of individuals seeking careers in agriculture.You can learn more about the plan here.  SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Limerick Post reporter Alan Jacques joined the volunteer unit on patrol.by Alan Jacques [email protected] CAN’T imagine there is anyone in Limerick who doesn’t feel that a huge debt of gratitude is owed to the volunteers of the Corbett Suicide Prevention Patrol (CSPP).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday night, CSPP volunteers give up their time to patrol between the New Bridge, Sarsfield Bridge, Thomond Bridge and Baal’s Bridge to identify and provide support to those in distress and possibly contemplating suicide.Since setting up in 2012, the voluntary organisation has made 275 suicide interventions at the river — with 100 of these described as physical interventions.I joined the suicide prevention patrol last month on a cold and wet Thursday night to walk the River Shannon from 9pm to 1am.After a day’s work, I had to psyche myself up to leave the comforts of home that evening to face the wind, rain and bitter cold.The five CSPP patrol members I joined that night — Mike Mulholland, Colin Urquhart, Phil Hogan, Terry Byrne and Mary O’Looney — had also just finished a hard day’s work. But it was clear that none of them would have chosen to be anywhere else as they navigated countless straps and zips on their Arctic-repelling floatation suits at their base in the Potato Market to prepare for the night ahead.“Sure, I could be at home by the fire watching TV, but then tonight could be the night someone is down at the river crying out for someone to talk too,” CSPP volunteer Terry Byrne explained.As a full moon rose over an ominously dark and leaden sky, the volunteer unit equipped with high-powered torches, first aid kits, a defibrillator and throw bags were ready to face the elements as they patrolled the banks of the River Shannon.The high esteem the CSPP volunteers are held in by Limerick people quickly became evident as passers-by constantly thanked and praised them for their invaluable service to the city.“Thanks for being out here,” said one young man, reeking of aftershave, as he scurried across Sarsfield Bridge on his way into town.“Fair play to you lads,” another man heading for home remarked.“I have to commend ye. Ye do an amazing job,” one artful dodger cheekily roared out of the shadows as he tried the handles of parked cars on Howley’s Quay.Like water off a mallard’s back, the Corbett volunteers took the compliments and colourful nightlife all in their stride. They have witnessed some harrowing sights and encountered all varieties of wildlife along the riverbank over the last three years.“There isn’t much we haven’t seen down here,” non-phased CSPP chairman Mike Mulholland admitted.“There was two girls sitting naked in a car on O’Callaghan Strand one night. Two fellas were watching them from across the street, but I won’t tell you what they were doing!“We’ve seen it all from dogging to prostitution to drug dealing and cruising,” said Mike.During the patrol, I was struck by the volunteers high level of awareness, both of their surroundings and those who frequented it. They quickly zoned in on individuals who walked alone or stood gazing into the water, in case they might be in distress.“It’s okay, he’s walking a dog,” volunteer Mary O’Looney shouted out to team members at one point as they watch the movements of a lone figure in Arthur’s Quay Park.Thanks to their ASSIST applied suicide intervention skills training, volunteers know how to approach and talk to people who may be in deep despair and seriously contemplating entering the river.“It can be very tough. Those who’ve already made up their mind to go in can get aggressive and curse you for stopping them. It’s awful to hear someone shouting at you to let them end their pain,” Mike tells me.The CSPP volunteers take their work very seriously and are highly alert the entire time we are on patrol. Over the course of the patrol we walked between 8 to 10kms, while the group’s two bicycles donated by Frank Hogan Motors, allows them to cover up to 20kms on any given night.It’s grim down by the river at night and you can see why post-traumatic stress might be par for the course in this line of work.Volunteers have had to physically stop people from going into the river, people who see no other alternative than to end their own lives; they have witnessed brutal acts of violence after drunken fights spilling out of pubs and clubs, and constantly meet despondent and broken people who see no future.CSPP volunteers have a difficult job and a counsellor is available to them 24-7.“We had the busiest Christmas last year since we started. There were 18 interventions over 12 nights. Some nights you might not talk to a sinner and then other nights there might be a couple of interventions,” Mike explained.“It would be great if we didn’t have to be out here at all but right now this service is needed. For many people, we are their first point of contact and we feel guilty when we’re not here for them.”Mike, whose own father died by suicide 13 years ago, insists that suicide only leaves unanswered questions for the families left behind.“It’s a horrible feeling because you’ll never get the answers. We do feel a massive responsibility to those who find themselves in distress down at the river. Every time I’m at home and I hear the Coastguard helicopter it’s like a kick in the guts. You can’t help but wonder if we could have helped that person if we were here,” he said.As well as being a suicide prevention unit, CSPP volunteers are trained in first aid, and are often the first on the scene after a violent attack or drunken incident in the city at weekends. The volunteers have a good relationship with the Gardaí and emergency services and make huge personal sacrifices to ensure Limerick’s sons and daughters make it home safely at night.“I always worry for young women when I see them walking home at four o’clock in the morning,” volunteer Terry Byrne confessed.“You’d see young fellas as well who are very drunk going over the bridge on a Saturday night and you have to be very vigilant that they don’t fall into the water. You would worry for them,” she said.“I get the Limerick Post every Thursday morning and check the anniversaries in case anyone who has died by suicide’s anniversary is coming up – just so we can be on the lookout for people from their circle of friends that might be thinking about copying them. This has happened in the past,” Mike interjects.As I watched patrol members shine their torches into the dark, murky waters of the River Shannon and relay horror stories of some of the heartbreaking interventions they’ve made, it’s difficult to think of them as anything other than heroic.They patrol the river because they care and want to give something back.Thankfully my night on patrol with the Corbett group passed without incident, but on another night these selfless volunteers make all the difference between life and death. Simply by being there, they make a difference.American actor Edward Albert once said that “the simple act of caring is heroic”. This is most certainly true of the Corbett Suicide Prevention Patrol.
