Joker in the pack: Wallaby hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau may, be for once, be inconspicuous because of his absenceBy Alan DymockTHE PRESSURE on Will Genia and James Horwill may be great as we slide towards the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia, but not for the reasons many would expect.On Saturday, as the Waratahs crashed against the wild Brumbies of Canberra in the Super 15, Test hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau took a knee with a broken forearm. It was a worrying sight for Australian fans who had already seen world-class poacher David Pocock write himself off for the upcoming Test series.Wallaby wounds: Polota-Nau and SmithMore so than just missing personnel, though, Australia may suffer because of their lack of big characters.Talking to Rugby World yesterday, Wallaby and Waratahs prop Benn Robinson said: “Tafu [Polota-Nau] is the biggest character of them all and he is different to a lot of people. Losing him is not good news.”Squads need big personalities to lead and to tie them together. The Lions have already spoken about this and the importance of bonding. So while Genia and Horwill are stronger than a moonshine milkshake in terms of leadership, the Wallaby squad could well be that little bit more vulnerable to splintering without their chuckle brothers and drop-goal divas to laugh at and lean on.Polota-Nau will most likely be replaced in the Australian 25-man squad that was announced on Sunday, though no concrete date has been set for pulling players out of the Super 15. So there will be no Tafu, no Quade Cooper and no Kurtley Beale. It is likely that George Smith, also injured in that Aussie derby and likely to miss the next three games out of the remaining four regular season games, has missed his window to impress Robbie Deans and squeeze into the squad to face the Lions as one of the extra six players, to be announced on June 10. WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND – SEPTEMBER 22: Kurtley Beale (L) and Quade Cooper of the Wallabies stretch during an Australian Wallabies IRB Rugby World Cup 2011 captain’s run at Wellington Regional Stadium on September 22, 2011 in Wellington, New Zealand. (Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images) Beale may feel he has pushed his demons back into the bottle and make the six. Cooper may show the elusive and unlabled ‘stuff’ that Deans needs to see and earn a recall. Polota-Nau and Smith may cause scientists and doctors to faint with amazement due to their stitch-popping, rapid recovery.If none of this comes off, though,it could be a dry, serious, driven camp that faces the Lions, and it remains to be seen whether that will be more dangerous to the tourists or whether it means the hosts are that little bit weaker at the seams. However, much like the theory that as soon as a space opens up in the Lions contingent Jonny Wilkinson will be flown out, there is a suggestion that enigmatic playmaker Cooper will be slotted in as one of the six additional Wallabies once he has proved his defensive worth to Deans during the Queensland Reds game against the Lions on June 8.For Robinson, though, it is Beale’s personality and sublime talent that may be missed most.Absent friends: Kurtley Beale and Quade Cooper stick close“To not have Kurtley in the 25 is massive,” the prop said. “To pull out to address personal issues is honourable, but to look at it from a rugby perspective; of course you want him.“If you look at the great try he scored against Wales last year to win the game he has the talent. He is still in line to make the extra six.”As it stands there are plenty of questions about Deans’ additions. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS
Why there needs to be a Pacific Islands Super Rugby teamSetting up a Pacific Islands Super Rugby team has long been mooted but the idea now seems to be getting closer to reality.Super Rugby has introduced teams from Argentina and Japan in recent years, and another revamp is expected in 2020. That is when a Pacific Islands team could be introduced.The New Zealand government recently released the findings of a feasibility study they had commissioned into basing a Super Rugby side on the Pacific Islands. While insisting such a team should be based in Fiji, Samoa or Tonga – Fiji’s capital Suva looks the most likely location – the report also said that playing a game either on the West Coast of America or on Hawaii would allow them to tap into new markets of large Pacific populations overseas.MORE FROM RUGBY WORLD ON THE PACIFIC ISLANDS Rugby World’s Pacific Islands special issue Rugby World finds out what those in the… Tonga coach Toutai Kefu“There are a lot of positives. One of the biggest ones for me is it keeps a lot of my players here. The biggest issue we have is most of our players are throughout Europe playing in different competitions, so the logistics of gathering together for a campaign are quite a challenge.French sojourns: There are huge number of islanders playing in the Top 14 (Getty Images)“If I had most players here playing Super Rugby I could keep in contact quite easily and track them a lot better. The Super Rugby programmes are much better than France, too, in terms of player welfare and tactical.”Fiji coach John McKee“A Super Rugby team is one of the missing pieces in the jigsaw of Pacific Islands rugby. It would help the Pacific to have more talented players at home. Players would still go to Europe, but they could certainly set their career off through pathways here and other Pacific nations.“It would be a massive benefit for us and the Super Rugby season fits perfectly with the international season.“With a Super Rugby franchise operating out of the Pacific, we could have an academy system underneath feeding into the professional team. It would all give Pacific coaches valuable experience in professional environment and that would strengthen the domestic rugby.Team base: ANZ Stadium in Suva has already hosted Super Rugby games (Getty Images)“For me there seems to be a bit of a shift with support from some quarters for this to happen. It needs to be financially stable and not take money out of the Pacific Island unions because we have to run our own domestic games and national team competitions. So we need support from other funding sources. There are a lot of challenges but it’s very exciting.”Samoa General Manager of High Performance Zane Hilton“In reality the players are not going to be from the existing national programme. It does however give the island nations a huge opportunity to have a pathway for players coming out of Samoa A and potential Manu Samoa players to play professional rugby.“We’ll back it and certainly support it, it just has to be done in a fair and equitable way.” Expand A celebration of Pacific Islands rugby – and… Pacific Combine creates new player pathway on islands Why there needs to be a Pacific Islands Super Rugby team New line-up? The addition of a Pacific Islands team could boost Super Rugby (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby World finds out what those in the Pacific Islands think of having a Super Rugby team TAGS: FijiSamoaTonga Expand Rugby World’s Pacific Islands special issue Pacific Combine creates new player pathway on islands Collapse There are other obvious benefits. It creates a route to professional rugby for players based in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga without having to head overseas and would give the unions easier access to their best players while also making them more likely to represent their home nation than qualify on residency elsewhere.There are still issues to be addressed, not least how the team would be funded, but World Rugby could decide to back such a project as they did with Argentina’s inclusion in the Rugby Championship and Super Rugby through the Jaguares.Making strides: The Fijian Drua already play in Australia’s NRC (Getty Images)When Rugby World was in Fiji and Samoa recently, we asked some of the key figures in the game there what they thought of a possible Super Rugby franchise and we received an overwhelmingly positive response.Here’s what they said…Samoa Rugby Union CEO Vincent Fepuleai“It’s a great idea and it’s a great opportunity for Samoa, Tonga and Fiji to play in that competition. From our point of view, we just want somebody to be able to fund it. We support it, but it all comes down to money.“An independent franchise with a mandate of having Pacific Islands players in the team looks most likely. Fiji is probably the right place for it to be logistically.“SANZAAR will decide whether to expand and a lot of work is going on behind scenes to find the right investors to be able to get it off the ground. Running it separately from the unions is a must.” Why there needs to be a Pacific Islands Super Rugby team Rugby World gets the lowdown on the Pacific… Don’t miss Rugby World’s Pacific Islands special – the September 2018 issue is on sale until the end of August.

Innocence in Zen / HAO design ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904599/innocence-in-zen-hao-design Clipboard Interior Designers: HAO Design Area Area of this architecture project Taiwan (ROC) Photographs: Hey!CheeseSave this picture!© Hey!CheeseText description provided by the architects. Experiencing the “Zen” of lifestyle starts from learning to appreciate the DNA of each type of material: the sense of time conveyed by tree rings, the brushstroke textures reflected in the coating materials or maybe the resilience shown by twisting steel. Through design, we create an emotional effect that is in harmony with the client’s frame of mind.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseThis project is located in Kaohsiung’s Agricultural 16th Special Zone, close to Riverbank Park, the commercial district and the art gallery. It is the ideal residential area for culture and education. The owners are a husband-wife couple, who are both physicians, living together with their two daughters. The master prefers the simple Zen style and the mistress prefers a Nordic style, simple and natural. The older daughter is outgoing and active while the younger daughter is gentle and quiet. The owners wish to create an ideal playground for their daughters in the home.Save this picture!PlanHAO Design observed that the home has the advantage of direct sunlight in every direction but the existing layout is too fragmented. After considering the frequency of each room’s usage, we decided to remove two rooms and re-arrange the home into a 2+1 layout. A sliding door is used to flexibly enhance the common space. When the door is shut, the multi-function room can be private enough to be used as a guest room. We also transformed the third washroom into a change room in order to increase the storage space.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseIn the past, designer Ch’en Hung-Wen often used the method of “shared functions” to provide a diverse sense of lifestyle to a small space. To ensure that this home is sufficiently spacious, he dramatically partitioned the functional areas of the space into the living room, dining table, bar, desk and leisure room. The tatami bed has a ten-centimeter thick cushion. The entire home has a rich sense of movement.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseThe most interesting part is the designs of the multifunction room and the children’s room. These two areas are not partitioned by a solid wall but rather a large wardrobe is installed in a manner similar to a secret base. The wardrobe comes with a pastel round-shaped door, leading to a tunnel, and sits on sliding rails. Doors of different designs may be interchanged up and down in a flexible fashion in order to freely adjust the position of the entrance and exit to the room. Pull-up bar handles are installed under the ceiling to turn the wardrobe into a viewing platform that can be closed off or opened through at will. The dynamic functions evoke the joy of playing hide-and-seek.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseTo achieve an approachable and down-to-earth visual effect, the atrium floor makes use of chiseled stone tiles and the screen is made of weaved iron netting. There is dark-colored slate tiling behind the piano. On one side, three aspen wood decorations are emplaced next to the kitchen. Some ceilings are ornamented with a linear grille to create a refined Zen style.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseThe furnishing (windows pane, table surface, shelves, cabinets and storage racks) makes full use of solid wood. The bookshelf wall in the study room is designed to emphasize the feeling of volume and enhance the warm of a family home.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseThe four-pane sliding doors that control the openness of the common public space use Kirby’s Italian-style plaster and pastel wallpaper.Using different combinations of opening and shutting, three spatial expressions can be created together with the “Lotos” cement solid wall. Featuring a special coating with a rustic texture and hand-crafted furniture, an elegant and casual home is hereby created.Save this picture!© Hey!CheeseProject gallerySee allShow lessHouston Museum of Fine Arts / Lake|Flato ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMontauk House / Desai Chia ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904599/innocence-in-zen-hao-design Clipboard Innocence in Zen / HAO designSave this projectSaveInnocence in Zen / HAO designSave this picture!© Hey!Cheese+ 47Curated by 韩爽 – HAN Shuang Share Photographs Area: 183 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeHAO DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKaohsiung CityGaoxiongTaiwan (ROC)Published on October 28, 2018Cite: “Innocence in Zen / HAO design” 28 Oct 2018.

January 7 was the 50th anniversary of the Chicago Freedom Movement, launched by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1966 to end slum housing in Chicago. This campaign, also known as the Open Housing Movement, led to the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968. It opened up a fight not only for housing rights but also for jobs and against police brutality in the North.To mark this anniversary, on Jan. 16 the Peoples Power Assembly in Baltimore will be gathering outside the downtown office of Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano. That’s at 417 E. Fayette St., across from City Hall. The protesters will demand justice for all public housing residents, the repair of all public housing and the commissioner’s firing. They will also demand the rehiring of housing authority worker Lucky Crosby, who helped blow the whistle on the sex-for-repairs scandal.The PPA has launched a campaign to win rights for housing project residents and to end slum housing. The group has visited hundreds of homes in housing projects and collected an equal number of signatures on petitions demanding repairs, going door-to-door in Gilmor Homes, McCullough Homes, Latrobe and O’Donnell Heights.Recently, the federal government has awarded close to $10 million in a class action suit to women who were victims of being forced to trade sex for repairs of their homes.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

More info at www.wrecknsow.com and wrecknsow on FaceBook.Brianna Conroy and MR. MoonFriday July 19 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm Brianna Conroy:Singer-songwriter, Brianna Conroy, is the very first featured artist on Fitz Ross Productions. Though presently honing her craft as well as writing and promoting her own songs in Boston, at Berklee College of Music, home is Los Angeles for this creative talent.Self-taught on the guitar and piano, the fresh faced youth first splashed onto Youtube back in 2010, making waves as significant as those tumbling luxuriously down her head.Backed simply on acoustic guitar by her brother, Brianna’s earnest rendition of ‘Sprawl II’ by Arcade Fire has since garnered over 20, 000 hits, no small feat for a YouTube debut. Since that time, Brianna’s performance resume has come to boast such impressive venues as LA’s Whisky a Go-Go and The Roxy. The steady diet of classic music acts such as The Beatles, Crosby Stills and Nash, Beck, and Radiohead, nurtured her formative years and have no doubt flavored Brianna’s originals.At the same time, her writing is influenced by the contemporary likes of The Black Keys, Grizzly Bear, Kimbra, The xx, and Young The Giant. The result is a unique sound that calms with its raw melodic simplicity, sedate harmonies, and heartfelt lyrics; atmospheric, raw, and real.Mr. Moon: Former member of the alternative/indie rock band Eden’s Bliss, Manhattan Beach California native Michael de Virgilio personifies the musical form of himself under his new Moniker Mr. Moon.Having begun his musical career with Edenâ€™s Bliss, playing shows at notable Los Angeles Venues such as the Whiskey A Go-Go and the Knitting Factory, Mr. Moon now carves his way down a solo career path. Currently juggling studies at UCLA with his artistic talent, Mr Moon’s originals veer towards an indie rock sound that bears undertones of jazz and folk.Look out for his upcoming EP in mid-July, which will feature songs that are honest yet ambivalent, and convey Mr Moon’s authentic address of the intangible psychological void that modern society faces.Rubber SoulSaturday August 10 Thursday 7:00 pm to 10:00 pmRubber Soul performs Rock and Roll tunes and lead toward their favorite band the Beatles. Rubber Soul performed at Matt Dennyâ€™s on St. Patrickâ€™s Day 2013.

Bank of New York Mellon filed a wrongful foreclosure action, claiming that BNY Mellon lacked the authority to foreclosure non-judicially under New Hampshire state law without also proving that it was the holder of the borrower’s note. The trial court ruled in favor of BNY Mellon and the plaintiff appealed the case to the First Circuit court, which subsequently certified two questions to the New Hampshire State Supreme Court with regard to whether or not the state law requires that the party initiating the foreclosure must be the owner of both the note and the mortgage at the time the non-judicial foreclosure is brought about.The Supreme Court referred the First Circuit Court to its opinion in Bergeron v. N.Y. Community Bank, issued in July 2015, which involved answering similar questions on the law pertaining to foreclosure. Both cases involved mortgages creating an agency relationship between MERS and the noteholder and granted expressly to MERS (or whomever MERS assigns) “the power of sale and the right to foreclose and sell the mortgaged property,” according to the announcement.“We are pleased that the Supreme Court of New Hampshire consistently recognizes the plain language in the mortgage agreement signed by a borrower at closing establishes the lawful agency relationship between MERS and a lender and its successors,” MERSCORP Holdings Vice President for Corporate Communications Janis Smith said. “The New Hampshire Supreme Court ruling recognizes MERS’ authority to take action on behalf of the lender, including assigning the mortgage.”MERS won a number of court decisions just since the second half of 2015 in cases that challenged its right to act as mortgagee. In late September, MERS won similar decisions in Montana, Georgia, New York, and Texas. In Kentucky in early September 2015, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals denied an en banc rehearing of a case that held that recording statutes in the state do not required a recording in the land records when promissory notes are transferred. MERS has also had court victories in North Texas, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania since July.

Comedy actor Jamie Demetriou has said every time he meets lettings branch staff they claim to know a real ‘Stath’, the character he plays in the second series of his ongoing Channel 4 show Stath Lets Flats.The show, which is in its second series and is on Mondays each week at 10pm until mid-September, is rapidly becoming required viewing among agents for its sometimes hysterical and occasionally accurate portrayal of a chaotic branch office.In it Demetriou plays a deeply incompetent Greek-Cypriot North London lettings agent who works for his family’s business Michael and Eagle.32-year-old Demetrious yesterday told London’s Metro newspaper that as a renter he’s been worried about being blacklisted by his real-life counterparts for his poor portrayal of the profession, and finds flat hunting mildly embarrassing when agents recognise him.Stath Lets Flats“I’ve been comforted that, when I occasionally go with friends to flat viewings to pick up titbits, I tend to get a warm response,” he says.“They tend to all know another letting agent who’s like Stath so they take comfort in that — ‘he’s like the idiot that’s in our office.’“But a lot of the time my internal monologue is saying: ‘Mmmm, no, it’s you!”Demetrious has also revealed that fans who have described the comedy as the ‘perfect pre-Brexit comedy about a fractured Britain’ are wrong.“I understand that housing and Brexit interlink in a way that sort of needs flagging up, but I don’t think this is the show to do it. It’s not a satire, it’s a family comedy about a sweet idiot,” he says.Demetrious is also due to feature in the upcoming TV series of Four Wedding and a Funeral and has also appeared in two other comedy series, Fleabag and Alan Partridge.Stath Lets Flats Jamie Demetriou Channel 4 August 28, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
