Xavier Rush sees red for dangerous tackle on Courtney Lawes

first_imgMonday Dec 20, 2010 Xavier Rush sees red for dangerous tackle on Courtney Lawes Xavier Rush was red carded for a dangerous tackle on Courtney Lawes as Cardiff Blues went down 23-19 to the Northampton Saints at the Cardiff City Stadium this weekend. The result of the fierce contest effectively eliminated the Blues from the Heineken Cup.Rush, a former All Black number eight, saw red after he flew out the line to make a crucial momentum stopping tackle on lock Lawes as Saints were threatening after a move from deep. The hit virtually decapitated the England second rower though, who took it well considering the impact.He got up, played on, but left the field after less than ten minutes. Its since been reported that hes fine and suffered no ill effects. Rush on the other hand, could be in line for a citing following the red card that was shown to him by referee Jerome Garces.Lawes did dip into the tackle, but the Blues number eight – not known as a dirty player – was responsible for the point of contact, so unfortunately even if he would have hit chest high with Lawes standing upright, the result was ultimately dangerous.“It was a physically intimidating game but we didn’t take a backward step,” said Saints coach Jim Mallinder. He said Lawes was okay after the controversial tackle.“It was a big hit and anyone who takes Courtney around the head needs to be fairly high! Rushie is an experienced player and he has gone into the tackle and taken Lawes’s head off. He was probably committed to it,” he added.Despite losing Rush, the Blues could have hung on for the win but errors and a late try cost them as they went down for their first home loss in 13 matches in the tournament.Do you think it was a harsh call to give a straight red, or did the officials get it right?

3 Houses in Paradis / Helen & Hard

first_img Year:  2010 Norway “COPY” 3 Houses in Paradis / Helen & Hard “COPY” Projects Architects: Helen & Hard Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily CopyHouses•Stavanger, Norway Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/153151/3-houses-in-paradis-helen-hard Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/153151/3-houses-in-paradis-helen-hard Clipboard Text description provided by the architects. The small site is located in a neighbourhood with preserved, 18th century timber villas. To meet the client’s wish to increase the density of his property Helen & Hard proposed three houses, which would interpret the traditional villa typology. Placed close to each other, the volumes are stepped to ensure maximum access to the marvellous seaside views for each house. During the design process, the relationship of the new dwellings to the preserved trees and the sloping topography played a significant role. Save this picture!Courtesy of helen & hardIn all the three houses, the entry, sleeping areas and bathrooms, along with a two-floor high living room are located on the ground floor, while on the second floor there is a large living-room with extensive glass facades and a terrace overlooking adjacent houses toward the view. Each house has an essentially closed façade to its northern back face, designed as a sort of “shield”. This shield, which is covered with rough, dark timber boards, includes the roof, the back facade and the exterior storage space. It also provides a shelter, and protects against views into the private outdoor spaces. On the inside of the shield, towards the southern view, the facade is covered with smooth white painted timber boards.Save this picture!Courtesy of helen & hardProject gallerySee allShow lessGateway Galaxy / Balmond StudioArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Save this picture!Courtesy of helen & hard+ 7 Share 3 Houses in Paradis / Helen & HardSave this projectSave3 Houses in Paradis / Helen & Hard CopyAbout this officeHelen & HardOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesStavangerHousesNorwayPublished on July 26, 2011Cite: “3 Houses in Paradis / Helen & Hard” 26 Jul 2011.

Add color

first_imgBy Stephanie Schupska and Jim MidcapUniversity of GeorgiaWhen Jim Midcap moved to Georgia 18 years ago, he decided to go native — in his yard, anyway. Now, every fall, he’s reaping the benefit in gold, orange, red and yellow.Midcap, a Cooperative Extension horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, encourages others to add color to their yards with more than just flowers.”In the fall,” he said, “we get a nice range of colors in native trees – red and orange in the red maple and in the sugar maple, golds and oranges.”Another of his favorites, the ginkgo, turns a “brilliant yellow” and then overnight drops all its leaves. Before the foliage turns brown, “you have a nice, golden lawn underneath.”No one knows exactly when trees will lose their green.”Everyone likes to predict when we’ll have good fall color,” Midcap said. “It depends on temperature and moisture levels and the health of the tree. If we get proper temperatures this fall, we have a good possibility of having outstanding fall color.”Midcap’s first Georgia plantings of red maples, redbuds, dogwoods, silver bells and hollies have “almost become a jungle now,” he said.Here are his suggestions for making a yard pop with color with native and introduced trees:Red maple is a swamp native reaching 40-60 feet. Young trees are pyramidal, becoming rounded to irregular at maturity. Bright red fruit follow reddish spring flowers. The bark is smooth and gray. Fall leaves develop into glorious yellows and reds. “October Glory” and “Autumn Blaze” offer reliable color.American yellowwood is an uncommon native tree not widely sold. Trees are low-branching with broad, rounded crowns. Spectacular white spring flowers may bloom only in alternate years. In fall, the foliage turns butter-yellow. The larger branches and trunk are smooth and gray. Hardy statewide, it grows 30-50 feet tall.Sourwood is one of the best native trees for fall color. It’s delicately pyramidal, with drooping branches. Young leaves mature to a lustrous, dark green and turn red to maroon in the fall. The white flowers come in 4- to 10-inch clusters in June and July. Sourwood is great for naturalizing native sites in sun or partial shade. It reaches 25-35 feet and does best in north Georgia.Persian parrotia is a rather rare, small tree. The pest-free summer foliage changes to purple, orange and yellow in fall. The bark exfoliates, revealing dark and light patches on twisting, multiple trunks. Small, maroon flowers appear in late winter. Mature trees are often wider than they are tall. They do better in north Georgia on well-drained soils.Chinese pistache is a handsome, tough tree that’s oval and rounded. Its pest-free leaves are lustrous, dark green with small leaflets, changing to rich orange-red in fall. The bark is gray, with exfoliating flakes. Pistache is a medium shade tree, reaching 30-40 feet. It’s hardy statewide, even through drought and infertile soils.Elegant katsura is pyramidal early on and becomes upright and oval with age. The leaves mature to blue-green, then turn a rich yellow to apricot in fall and smell spicy when they drop. It has brown, shaggy bark. With no serious insect or disease problems, it has to be watered during droughts to prevent early leaf drop. It grows 40-60 feet tall and is hardy statewide.Ginkgo is so old its unique, fan-shaped leaves have been found in fossils. Young plants establish slowly. It becomes a beautiful, mature specimen when the green leaves turn a brilliant, clear yellow in the fall. Male trees are best. Females produce fruits that smell rancid as they mature.”Fall is the best time to plant trees,” Midcap said. “New plants develop strong roots in the cooler, moist fall soils.”(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor and Jim Midcap is a Cooperative Extension horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

PPF to increase alternatives portfolio with £500m energy mandate

first_imgThe UK’s defined benefit (DB) £16.3bn (€19.7bn) lifeboat fund is set to increase its exposure to the growing energy market, tendering a £500m private equity mandate.The Pension Protection Fund (PPF) said it is looking for a manager to handle £400m-500m in allocations to the US oil and gas sector while also investing in renewable energy.The US has in recent years seen significant growth in the field of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a method whereby natural gas is extracted from lower layers of sediment after it it flooded with a blend of water and chemicals. Asked if the mandate could include exposure to fracking, a spokeswoman for the PPF would only say it would look at “all options” presented by fund managers. The investment will form part of the fund’s alternatives allocations, which has a strategic allocation of 22.5% after the fund overhauled its investment structure earlier this year.At the end of March, the PPF had £444m, or 2.7%, in private equity, with a strategic allocation of 4% to the asset class.It said it wanted to appoint two or three managers as part of a framework agreement investing in  energy or related companies, mainly in North America and OECD countries.The agreement is expected to last around four years with the possibility to extend this by a further four years.Interested fund managers must have a targeted fund size of over $400m (€308m) with close to 80% of the fund allocated to traditional energy investments, or closely related holdings.The move by the PPF comes after it delivered a marginal negative return over the last financial year after its liability-driven investments (LDI) dragged down returns.It suffered a negative 0.7% return on overall investments which rose to 3.4% after stripping out the fund’s LDI book.Earlier this year the fund overhauled its investment structure changing from holding 30% in risk assets to a more dynamic approach.It will now allocate 58% to LDI strategies, 22.5% to alternatives and 12.5% to hybrid assets that both provide risk exposure and match liability payments with inflation expectations.It transferred some of its property holdings into the hybrid portfolio, thus decreasing what assets came under its alternatives banner.The fund’s move into private equity holdings in the energy sector come after it also made moves to enter the direct lending space, and threw its weight behind smart beta.In January this year, it announced it would begin lending around £150m to UK corporates as it searched for two managers to manage the mandate.It also changed the strategic benchmark for its equity managers from a market-capitalisation approach to a smart beta minimum volatility method.last_img read more

Tabcorp shareholders dispute executive merger rewards

first_imgShare Submit Share The governance of Australia ASX-listed Tabcorp Holdings has been served a bloody nose, as a significant number of its investors have rejected the firm’s executive remuneration report.This Wednesday, 40% of Tabcorp investors voted against 2017/18 executive packages.Australian business news sources report that investors had been incensed by the company attaching executive performance rewards (bonuses) to Tabcorp’s AUS $11 billion merger with main market rival Tatts Group.The vote sees Tabcorp governance served its first strike under ASX rules. Tabcorp will move to restructure its executive remuneration provisions, seeking to avoid a 25% rejection vote at next year’s AGM, which will force a board spill.Tabcorp Chairman Paula Dwyer acknowledged investor concerns that executive rewards should be conditional to the success of the Tatts merger.Nevertheless, Dwyer explained that the rewards were in recognition of ‘extraordinary efforts’ to complete a landmark and business changing transaction which took 14-months to complete.Continuing its merger integration with Tatts, Dwyer assured Tabcorp investors that executive remuneration policy would change to a ‘synergy-model which reflects the firm’s changed business entity.“The new performance measure will be based on the achievement of synergies and benefits from the combination at the end of FY21, and the vesting period will be extended from two years to three and a half years.” Related Articles Senet Australia appoints Paul Newsom as new client advisory lead  August 27, 2020 Tabcorp raises $371m through institutional entitlement offer August 24, 2020 StumbleUpon Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020last_img read more
