Matt Banahan harshly carded for hit on Mirco Bergamasco

first_imgWednesday Oct 21, 2009 Matt Banahan harshly carded for hit on Mirco Bergamasco Wing Matt Banahan received his marching orders from referee George Clancy during Baths meeting with Stade Francais in their tense Heineken Cup meeting at the Rec on the weekend. Stade snuck home with the win late in the match, 29-27.Weve featured a few clips lately that have brought up the question of refereeing consistency and leniency. On the Henry Tuilagi video, where we see him absolutely demolish Ben Foden, the referee let the tackle go with out as much as a talking to.Here though, we see that if a team has been spoken to, the referee gets wound up by repeat offences, and theres pressure from the opposing team, a refs judgement can easily come into question unfortunately.The first bit in the clip shows Julien Arias receiving a high tackle, and then a shoulder in the ribs from Shontayne Hape. Arias went off injured, with Bath being penalised and spoken to by Irish referee Clancy.A little over a minute later, 6ft7 Banahan made a great hit on Mirco Bergamasco. Stade Francais appealed feverishly, from both on the field and the bench. Clancys first reaction was to yellow card the giant winger.Bath coach Steve Meehan questioned the decision, saying that for a yellow card and a penalty to come from it is extraordinary.“It was a terrific, legal tackle. Where does that come from? He didn’t deserve 10 minutes in the bin,” he said.Banahan, still only 22, wants to take his chances to prove that he deserves a regular spot in the England team.“This is a massive season for me. It’s always tough to follow up a really good season with an even better one. But that’s what I want to do. I want to improve and show I deserve to be picked by England, said Banahan.If he keeps putting in great hits like this, improving his all round game, and charging hard at defences, as we saw on the weekend, hell become a top class winger in no time. Do you think this a great hit by Banahan, or was the referee correct to yellow card him?

CONCEPTThe 1.8M Width House identity and the core is the fluidity of its interior space, which molds together all the rooms and grants the freedom to reinvent each part of the house on a daily base, defying the conventional divisions of living spaces.Save this picture!© Sobajima, ToshihiroARCHITECTUREThe first challenge we had to face with the design of the 1.8M Width House was the juxtaposition of the size of the plot and the spatial and psychological openness the clients’ wished for. At a mere 2.5 by 11m, the site is a typical “eels’ bed”, where you can, with your arms extended, touch both external walls of the building. To avoid a cramped interior, we focused on keeping as much free space as possible between the walls and on the creation of a fluid, playful space.Save this picture!© Sobajima, ToshihiroTo design a small but ever-changing house, we considered the house as an aggregation of small “places” and designed an environment in which such “places” expand on various levels. The floating floors in the long and narrow space generate a spatial expanse, while light and fresh air flow in from the façade and the roof, through the slender shelves that further enhance the peculiarities of the space. Daily household goods fit naturally into the atmosphere, blending in with the interior design and the inhabitants.Save this picture!SectionThe structure was developed by fully considering the singularity of the building shape. Columns and beams were limited to maximize the interior space. Steel-frame construction was found to be the most adequate to the narrow frontage imposed by the site, while an EZ stake system was adopted for the concrete foundation. Furthermore, the chosen exterior materials do not require scaffolding and an open piping route that can be easily maintained was installed to match the uniqueness of the site. Natural ventilation was carefully studied to minimize the use of air conditioning system. Natural wind and air flow circulator provide a comfortable space for the habitants. Save this picture!© Sobajima, ToshihiroURBAN CONTEXTThe 1.8M Width House is located on a shopping street in a central area of Tokyo. As many other parts of the city, it’s crowded with people and buildings alike. The multitude of often minute constructions we see now was born over time due to the dual action of rising land costs and demand. As a matter of fact, it isn’t uncommon for landowners to partition the original plot in order to sell it and this phenomenon is behind the appearance of the “Eels’ beds”: sites of a width close to the legal minimum of 2m.Save this picture!© Sobajima, ToshihiroWorking with these situations is a challenge but also a possibility to increase the available built space in the city while preventing its expansion. Moreover, along with other solutions, this strategy allows a variety of clients to access otherwise expensive neighborhoods and to carry on the city’s characteristic fast-paced evolution.Project gallerySee allShow lessHow an Optimized Workstation Accelerates Your DesignArticlesKempegowda International Airport / HOKSelected Projects Share Japan Architects: YUUA Architects & Associates Area Area of this architecture project 1.8M Width House / YUUA Architects & Associates Aihara Madoka CopyHouses•Toshima, Japan Year:  Manufacturers: Hansgrohe, Kaldewei, Kurosawa Metal, Showa Denko Building Materials, WOODPRO WOODPRO Photographslast_img read more

The residential project comprising eight wooden houses at Vila Taguaí, located 22 km from the centre of São Paulo, is a property development that was conceived as an innovative alternative, building new living spaces amongst the greenery of the city’s suburbs.Save this picture!Master PlanThe site is placed among dense vegetation on an East facing, 35% slope and the implantation sought to maintain the natural terrain to the greatest extent possible. The eight houses are elevated off the ground, creating terrace gardens. The trees were preserved and new ones will be planted, reinforcing the native flora.Save this picture!© João XavierThe road network is finished in cobblestones, maintaining soil permeability. Private areas are integrated with communal ones – a large garden – through the use of terraces and pedestrian walkways.+ 67The buildings make the most of natural sunlight and ventilation and utilise solar energy for water heating. The area surrounding the project must be preserved – rainwater runoff is collected and directed to an existing stream. Sewage and wastewater is treated in a plant located within the condominium for subsequent use in toilets and irrigation.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciWood is the best performing material as regards the two big issues of this century: energy and the environment. Its production requires only solar energy and, furthermore, managed forests help offset greenhouse gas emissions and generate quality jobs in rural areas, mitigating migration to large cities as well as promoting the economic development of producing regions.Using wood from sustainably managed forests in the Amazon region with a well thought out methodology, this project’s premise was to find innovative, low cost, easily implemented technology.Save this picture!© ITA – Prototype photosClose collaboration between the Engineering and Architectural sides enabled productive research into the method adopted, comprising wood panels used in the construction of walls and floor and roof slabs.The 10 cm strip modular system used for panel production enables them to come in widths of between 20 cm and 300 cm and heights varying from 100 cm to 550 cm. The reasoning behind this design is to allow the use of small, solid wood parts whilst still meeting requirements for a variety of architectural designs. The final dimensions of each panel facilitate pre-fabrication in the workshop, storage and transport to the site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Cristina Xavier – Photos of workLocal labour can be quickly trained for production and assembly, in workshops and at sites, thus reducing the constrictive situation inherent with a need for skilled workers.The panel system elaborated for this project combines industrialisation with flexibility, and can be applied at a variety of scales and is easily adaptable to local conditions without necessitating significant start-up investment. Its use is characterised by a reduced environmental impact, extremely low rates of waste production, low labour costs, fast construction times and tighter budgetary control.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe eight houses, based around three different floor plans with built areas ranging from 129-173m², available in single or two storey variations, create multifunctional spaces in compact residences, and allowed the construction system to be tested. The units all have direct access to the living room and terrace level.The architectural design prioritised the use of natural cross ventilation, with the largest openings facing North or East, and the smaller ones facing West. This controls the insulation whilst allowing natural sunlight into the environments and creating the chimney effect.As the houses are built of wood and elevated off the ground, they have good thermal performance and avoid damp seeping up from the soil, not to mention creating a shaded terrace next to the gardens.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe roof design includes an alwitra membrane and provides wide eaves, whilst thermal insulation comes from polystyrene sheets affixed to the panels. Suitable acoustic insulation between storeys was achieved by adding a 5 cm deep cement slab to the floor panels.Sewage and wastewater is collected and treated at a subterranean plant located within the site, proportioning treated water for use in toilets and irrigation that results in water consumption being reduced by 30%.Save this picture!DiagramThe rainwater collection system was designed to channel runoff toward the natural, existing stream.Each unit, as well as the communal areas, have joint plumbing and electrical inspection chambers that allow for future infrastructure installations and maintenance.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciNote: This project was originally publish on September 29, 2014.Project gallerySee allShow lessConchas Residence / Gui MattosSelected ProjectsFoster + Partners Design a House of Wisdom for Judah’s Scroll in SharjahArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeCristina Xavier ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousingCarapicuíbacollective livingIcebergCarapicuibaBrazilPublished on April 24, 2019Cite: “Vila Taguai / Cristina Xavier Arquitetura” 24 Apr 2019.

New rules and fines introduced for face-to-face fundraising

first_imgNew rules and fines introduced for face-to-face fundraising The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) has this week introduced a new best practice regime for street fundraisers. The new rules are accompanied by penalty points and fines for fundraising organisations that break the rules.The rules have been introduced following a year-long field trial and review process, after the Institute of Fundraising had asked the PFRA to provide extra ./guidance to the Institute’s code of practice on face-to-face fundraising. They are published in the PFRA Rule Book (Street F2F).The new rules provide more detailed ./guidance. For instance, while the code of practice says only that fundraisers must never “deliberately confuse or obstruct the public”, the Rule Book defines obstruction as: “Any deliberate action that causes a person to involuntarily stop or suddenly changedirection in order to get past the fundraiser and continue their journey.”The rules carry penalty points of 20, 50 or 100 points, and apply to fundraising organisations whether they are agencies or charities running in-house teams. When a fundraising organisation’s points total exceeds 1,000 points, that total is converted to a monetary fine on the basis of £1 per point. Further breaches are invoiced, at £1 per point each month.Sally de la Bedoyere, chief executive of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association, said: “For a form of fundraising that is so regularly in the limelight, it is vitally important that fundraisers work to the highest possible standards in order to maintain the confidence of the public, media, and central and local government.“These new rules complement the Institute of Fundraising’s code of practice on face- to-face fundraising, which sets the benchmarks for best practice across all forms of fundraising. This is a prime example of how sector bodies can co-operate to drive up standards and improve compliance with the codes.” Tagged with: face-to-face Individual giving Law / policy PFRA  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
