first_imgTuesday Sep 13, 2011 England’s Courtney Lawes suspended for two weeks England will be without lock Courtney Lawes for their next two Pool B games in the Rugby World Cup after he was cited and subsequently suspended for two weeks after he was found guilty of kneeing Argentina’s Mario Ledesma. Lawes will miss out on England’s next two matches against, against Georgia and Romania respectively, but will be available for their crunch meeting with Scotland. His offence was found to be in the lower end, which is usually a three week punishment, but his previous clean record and the remorse he showed meant that it was lowered to just the two weeks off.Hooker Steve Thompson admitted that the England came were relieved that he will be available for the Scotland match, while coach Martin Johnson has said that he felt Lawes was simply trying to get across to make a try saving tackle.“They obviously saw it a bit differently, but the good thing for us squad-wise is we have some very good players who can come in,” said Johnson.The incident occured just a minute after Lawes made a huge hit on center Gonzalo Tiesi, which resulted in him being rules out of the rest of the tournament with knee ligament damage.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

A concrete tropical box that embraces the lush jungle. The project was envisioned as an inward looking abode that safeguards its interior from the tropical sun and rain while at the same time, embraces the dense, natural floral enclave that the house sits within.Save this picture!© Kent SohSet in the tropics, we designed a concrete egg-crate structure that envelopes the house to keep the heat out, but draw daylight in to create comfortable spaces within. The perforated nature of this envelope allows the existing overgrowth to grow into the volume of the house, thus softening the boundary of inside and outside.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe egg-crate structure is built of in-situ concrete as a sun-filtering device at the depth of 900mm. The structure naturally allows daylight to filter through but resists radiation. Concrete fins of 150mm thickness reinforce the structure by framing openings of various sizes at a controlled rhythm. This further facilitates the regulation of light intensity inside.Save this picture!© Kent SohFrom the entry level, the existing site slopes downwards to the back. The design takes advantage of the sloping terrain to keep the dampness and humidity out within a tropical environment. The spaces are arranged to keep most parts of the house raised from the ground. This elevates the house to sit among the canopy of trees.Save this picture!© Kent SohThe main spaces- living, dining and the pool are positioned at the entry level; the bedrooms are placed on the upper floor; finally, a garage and service area sits on the lower ground. This ensured that dampness and pest is kept away, keeping the house airy and dry.Save this picture!© Kent SohThe main approach to the house is via a bridge flanked by multiple mature Albizia trees. From the entrance, a relatively narrow walkway, adjacent to a stairway and an internal courtyard, leads to the open living area.Save this picture!ElevationUpon arrival, the suppressed journey opens outwards to a double volume deck reflected upon a pool. The pool and the adjoining garden are enclosed within the volume of this egg-crate structure. These spaces are completely surrounded by green foliage as they hover close to the tropical canopy.Save this picture!© Kent SohLooking beyond the pool and the garden, one is greeted with a clear and extended panoramic view of the forest. On upper floors, windows are specially designed to capture views of big beautiful trees. A seemingly heavy concrete box, it touches the ground lightly, places itself among the trees and encourages the enduring landscape to grow within it.Project gallerySee allShow lessCannes Airport / COMTE et VOLLENWEIDER ArchitectesSelected ProjectsKeep It Glassy 2 / Coordination AsiaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Architects: WHBC Architects Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

You can go on the balcony in the morning to drink coffee, enjoy a panoramic view of the horizon and fresh air.Save this picture!© Mussabekova UlbossynThe interior of the house is simple.  Monochromatic white color in the interior allows to maximize the sense of space and not to strain the person, to feel clean and relax comfortably.Save this picture!© Mussabekova UlbossynThere were minimal excavations at the construction of the house, as the current relief of the site was perfect.

first_imgDemonstration opposing the so-called “Global Security Act.”Responding to a call from the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), a major confederation of French trade unions, tens of thousands of people in over 80 localities came out into the streets on Dec. 5 to demand an end to part-time and temporary jobs and unemployment. The issues of heightened tensions around police violence and a new security law that had brought a massive outpouring of protest on Nov. 28, were also raised.Because several unions in the CGT have been severely affected by the pro-business COVID-19 policies of the French government, which has given large amounts of aid to big companies while allowing them to lay off workers, COVID-19 was another issue raised.Other militant French trade union confederations, as well as some student unions, supported the CGT protests. Strong contingents from the “Yellow Vest” movement, which led broad protests against the government a year ago, took part in a number of the protests.Philippe Martinez, Secretary General of the CGT, told the press at the demonstration in Paris: “There is no opposition between public and individual liberties and the struggle for permanent jobs and against unemployment, especially in this period.” In its address to the workers of France, the CGT called for them to reject racism, anti-Semitism and other hateful discourses which divide and weaken the working class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
