More than eight of out ten (82 per cent) new jobs will be at junior, middle management or skilled labour, the survey said.Meanwhile, the City is seeing a strong return to confidence, yet worries persists over increased regulation and taxes, according to a small survey by consultants Smith and Williamson, also released yesterday. Four out of five respondents expect business prospects to improve or stabilise — yet two thirds believe regulation will restrict their businesses, its survey found.

Old heads come to the fore as Wales beat Italy

first_imgFaletau – 2 assists, 18 runs for 63m, 3 clean breaks, 6 defenders beaten, 2 offloads, 6 passes, 10 tackles— Russ Petty (@rpetty80) December 5, 2020It was that back-row pair who combined to set up the first try after just seven minutes. Tipuric was put through a hole by Faletau and he in turn found Kieran Hardy in support. Star man: Taulupe Faletau was Player of the Match against Italy (Getty Images) Old heads come to the fore as Wales beat ItalyGeorge North simply loves scoring against Italy.He now has ten tries in ten Tests against the Azzurri after crossing in the 69th minute of this Autumn Nations Cup fifth-place play-off at Parc y Scarlets that Wales won 38-18.The 28-year-old has also moved ahead of Gareth Thomas to become Wales’ second highest try-scorer in history with 41. Only Shane Williams, with 58, has more and it will be interesting to see if North can overtake the iconic winger in the next few years.North was one of several experienced players in the Welsh line-up to impress in this victory over Italy. It wasn’t smooth sailing for the hosts but they were clinical when they needed to be while Justin Tipuric and Taulupe Faletau, who was named Player of the Match, were particularly impressive. What a score from @Federugby Can @WelshRugbyUnion respond in the #AutumnNationsCup LIVE on #PrimeVideo? pic.twitter.com/DzOzhDh7yQ— Amazon Prime Video Sport (@primevideosport) December 5, 2020Tipuric and Faletau helped swing momentum back in Wales’ favour as they combined again with neat offloads to send Gareth Davies into space and the replacement scrum-half sprinted over from the Italian ten-metre line.Then a turnover in the 69th minute proved crucial. Italy decided to attack from their own half, Wales turned over the ball and quickly spread it wide from Jonathan Davies to North to Adams to Jonah Holmes, who took play to a couple of metres out.North then picked up the ball from the ruck and powered over. Callum Sheedy’s conversion made it 31-18 with ten minutes to go.Over time: George North burrows over for his 41st Wales try (Getty Images)It was fitting that Faletau and Tipuric wrapped up the scoring, the former breaking the Italian line and then passing to the latter to run in Wales’ fifth try.It was far from a perfect performance from Wales but it should relieve some of the pressure on Wayne Pivac, who has built his squad depth ahead of next year’s Six Nations.As for Italy, they end 2020 with nine straight defeats – the first time they have failed to win a match in a calendar year in the pro era.

Wales were 14-0 up and all looked rosy.However, their ill-discipline, particularly at the breakdown, and malfunctioning lineout allowed Italy to go in at the break trailing by just one point. And they would have a one-man advantage for the opening minutes of the second half.Paolo Garbisi slotted two penalties either side of a converted Marco Zanon try that was created by a Carlo Canna grubber on Wales’ 22 following a driving lineout. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Faletau, North and Tipuric prove crucial to a 38-18 victory in the Autumn Nations Cup — Amazon Prime Video Sport (@primevideosport) December 5, 2020Garbisi’s second penalty also saw Adams yellow-carded for not releasing the tackled player, Stephen Varney. Wales had been penalised several times by referee Wayne Barnes for the same offence – all eight penalties Wales conceded in the first half were at the ruck – and Adams was sent to the sin-bin in the 38th minute.Italy capitalised on that man advantage early in the second half. Jacopo Trulla launched a counter-attack down one side of the pitch, then the ball was spread to the other wing where Johan Meyer beat Louis Rees-Zammit and bounced Ioan Lloyd to score in the corner.

The project involved the refurbishment of an existing listed building. It is sited in an agricultural environment dedicated to irrigation cultivation. That is the reason why the regulations determined that the existing building could not be demolished in order to build a new one.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezThis house, almost in ruins, was disposed by two buildings around a patio: a house and a poultry house. Both buildings were built by stone walls in bad conditions and covered with a metallic temporary roof.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe intention of this refurbishment is to take advantage of the a few traditional items of the building, such as the thickness of the walls and the orientations and going a step further the conception of the domestic space and evolve the imposed functional structure: small openings and hierarchical spaces that do not allow the flexibility demanded by the current contemporary life.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezOn those basis, the existing functional layout was modified so that the house could be organized in privacy gradients. From the external facades the house seams introverted and most of the rooms are opened to the internal patio, which is the space where the life runs around. The less private rooms (foyer, living room, kitchen, dining room, play room) are opened to this central space, which is understood as another room of the house, generating a panoptic view. The rest of the rooms connect to a common area conceived as an extension of the room’s privacy and allowing for a flexible use.Save this picture!SectionOne of the goals was to develop the project trying to minimize the economic and energy costs; that is why the building envelope is made with a unitary material allowing for a reduction of the general construction costs and giving to the project a self-identity. Moreover, it allowed the house to merge with the surrounding landscape. Local materials and techniques have been used taking the maximum advantage of natural resources such as cross ventilations or vegetable canopies.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezThe resulting house assumes the continuity condition with the scenery and can be understood as a proposition of a modern way of life related to old preexistences throughout a sober and controlled language.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezProject gallerySee allShow lessNieto Sobejano Wins Competition to Design New Guangzhou Science MuseumArchitecture NewsThe Studios / SOUP architectsSelected Projects Share Year:  Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares Enríquez+ 16 Share 2014 Architects: Rosa Ma Ballester Espigares Area Area of this architecture project 2014 Year:  CopyHouses, Renovation•Cartagena, Spain Spain CopyAbout this officeRosa Ma Ballester EspigaresOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationCartagenaHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSpainPublished on June 16, 2015Cite: “La Rambla House / Rosa Ma Ballester Espigares” 16 Jun 2015.

FFA week Focuses on the Importance of Ag Education

first_img SHARE FFA week Focuses on the Importance of Ag Education Previous articleWill SE Indiana get Repeat of 2016 Muddy Spring?Next articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt FFA week Focuses on the Importance of Ag EducationNathem BlumeThis is FFA week, and FFA state officers are busy spreading the word about agriculture and FFA. State FFA Treasurer Nathan Blume says FFA Week is a time when he connects with a wide variety of people to explain exactly what FFA is and the benefits it can provide to students and their communities, “I try and hit the tone that FFA is not just about agriculture but about developing leadership that comes with agricultural education.”  Blume says, when he is talking to those who are not that familiar with agriculture or FFA, he stresses the leadership training that FFA provides and how that can impact their community as well as the industry of agriculture. He said FFA Week is a great time to spread this message.This week FFA students served as pages at the Indiana State Capitol, where there is discussion about making agriculture education more prevalent in schools around the state. Blume feels that including ag classes in a high school curriculum is important to expanding students’ career choices and expanding their horizons when it comes to agriculture, “My ag classes taught me just as much as my math, science, and English classes, so I feel it is important to expand ag classes in other schools around the state.” He added that getting more students involved in agricultural education will also lead to developing more agricultural education teachers, which are in very short supply. State Rep. Melanie Wright, D-Yorktown has co-authored legislation (HB 1283)  that would require school districts, charter schools, or accredited non-public high schools to offer a high-school level agriculture class. The measure would tie compliance to districts’ accountability grades with no district able to achieve the highest grade without offering the class. “I think accessibility to agriculture might open up to students who aren’t exposed to that,” Wright said. “I think it’s such a part of our heritage.”Blume and his fellow state officers will also be meeting with FFA chapters around the state this week.

Assange’s extradition to the US would “threaten the work of all journalists”

first_imgEveryone can join in supporting this cause. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) will be in London on Monday morning because the hearing at Belmarsh prison is of paramount importance for press freedom. In July 2013, we jointly wrote an opinion piece with Assange. It defended Edward Snowden, who had just revealed the international data surveillance programme known as PRISM. That’s not the issue. The European governments did not grant this request – out of respect for a country that had historically championed free speech, and no doubt out of fear as well. But I reiterate this request today for Assange himself. Let’s not forget that the “Collateral Murder” video revealed the truth about the deaths of 18 people, including a Reuters journalist and his assistant, who were killed by shots fired from a US helicopter in Baghdad on 12 July 2007. We believe that it’s not just an individual’s fate that will be at stake in the weeks to come. It’s also the very possibility of major journalistic revelations about state secrets. Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Press conference by Julian Assange’s European defence teamRemarks by Christophe Deloire, RSF secretary-general June 4, 2021 Find out more UN special rapporteur Nils Melzer has clearly shown that the conditions in which Assange is being held are tantamount to psychological torture and inhuman treatment. to go further News The issue today United KingdomFranceUnited StatesEurope – Central AsiaAmericas Protecting journalistsOnline freedomsProtecting sources ImprisonedWhistleblowersJudicial harassment I also invite the public to participate in a rally in defence of whistleblowers and against the criminalization of journalism that RSF, other NGOs, and media outlets are jointly organizing in Paris this evening (Thursday, 20 February).

Receive email alerts Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia The democratic example set by Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin is in danger. News We know that people react in different ways to Julian Assange’s persona and that some of the positions he has taken have surprised even his friends. Snowden had fled to Hong Kong and we asked the European Union’s governments to offer him their warmest possible welcome, under any status whatsoever. A secrecy that is increasingly opposed to journalists who serve the public interest by investigating such vital subjects as governments’ behaviour. Requests to the United Kingdom and United States Organisation At a press conference today in Paris with Julian Assange’s international lawyers – EricDupond-Moretti, Antoine Vey, Baltasar Garzon, and with Assange’s father John Shipton, RSF secretary-generalChristophe Deloire firmly opposed Assange’s extradition to the United States, where he isfacing the possibility of a 175-year prison sentence for passing information of a publicinterest nature to journalists. A historic contribution to journalism If Assange is tried under the Espionage Act, he will even be denied the possibility of demonstrating that the information he revealed served the public interest. Let’s say it clearly, Julian Assange made a historic contribution to journalism. RSF formally calls on European governments to grant Assange protection in the name of democracy and press freedom. Without legitimizing the British proceedings, we ask for Assange to be released pending a final decision by the judges so that he can receive appropriate medical care and prepare his defence properly. Where is the First Amendment? RSF has launched a petition against Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States that already has tens of thousands of signatures. These proceedings violate the US Constitution. Request for asylum in Europe We ask the British courts not to acquiesce, we ask them to reject the request for Assange’s extradition. It’s no exaggeration to say that Assange has been subjected to political and judicial persecution. It forced him to seek refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy for seven years, and it’s why he is being kept in detention now. The question is: do we think it’s acceptable for a contribution to journalism to be treated as spying? That’s the question. Let’s recall the list of WikiLeaks’ media partners: Le Monde, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post, L’Espresso, Der Spiegel, El País, Libération, The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph….  What Assange did in exposing cases of torture and abduction was clearly not spying.  Deciding if Julian Assange is a hero or a saint is not the question.

Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks support RSF’s work

first_img ©Philippe LOPEZ / AFP In the course of promoting the release of “The Post” in Europe, the film’s director, Steven Spielberg and its leading actors, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, have met with Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in a show of support for the NGO and the causes it defends: press freedom and quality journalism. RSF_en The issue of quality journalism is at the heart of “The Post,” which has just been released in the United States and will be released in France under the title of “Pentagon Papers” on 24 January. Set in the early 1970s, it shows how the Washington Post newspaper managed to publish the leaked Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam War in 1971. RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire met Spielberg, Streep and Hanks in Paris. Peter Price, who chairs the board of RSF USA, also attended the meeting, which was organized as part of a partnership between RSF and Universal Pictures France. It was Price, a former president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, who presented RSF with an Emmy Award for its defence of press freedom. “That a director such as Steven Spielberg and actors such as Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks have paid such a great tribute to quality journalism at a moment when media freedom is under threat from no less a person than the US President is already extremely important,” Deloire said. “But they have also used their promotional interviews to demonstrate a commitment to this pillar of democracy that goes far beyond the film’s promotion. Everyone at RSF thanks Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks for this crucial support at a time when journalists who question their governments are being attacked with unprecedented violence.” When RSF released its 2017 World Press Freedom Index, it organized round-table discussion at the headquarters of the Washington Post moderated by investigative reporter Dana Priest. RSF provided the Washington Post with concrete assistance when one of its reporters, Jason Rezaian, was arbitrarily detained in Iran from July 2014 to January 2016. Deloire and Margaux Ewen, the head of RSF’s Washington bureau, are due to meet with the newspaper’s editors in Washington on 19 January. RSF is organizing a screening of “The Post” in Paris on 22 January, two days before the film is generally released. “We thank Universal Pictures France and its CEO, Xavier Albert, and Jacques Benloulou, founder of the Trouble Shooter agency, for their support for our cause,” Deloire added.

Answers sought over burst water mains in Limerick

first_imgA burst pipe in Caherdavin caused flooding in the Brookville area. (Picture: Paul Tracey)ANTI-Austerity Alliance councillor Cian Prendiville is calling on Irish Water to explain why water mains in the city are continually bursting following two incidents in Limerick this week.At 4.30am this Tuesday, July 22, a water main serving Corbally burst outside Scoil Ide affecting residents and businesses in the area including Mill Road, Corbally Road, Irish Estates, Shannon Banks, Westbury and Barry’s Cross.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick City and County Council advised motorists travelling from East Clare to avoid the R463 and use the R464 via Parteen and Longpavement. The road had to be closed for a time and residents and businesses were also asked to conserve supply until full service was restored.On Monday, July 21, at 5am a burst pipe in Caherdavin caused flooding in the Brookville Avenue area. AAA councillor and local resident Cian Prendiville said he was told by the council that this main burst was a result of outdated pipes struggling to cope. There were no works taking place in the area when the water main burst.Rather than spending over €500 million on water meters, he said this money should be invested in fixing the water networkHe has written to the Cathaoirleach and Mayor asking that Irish Water and the relevant Council officials come to the next meeting to explain the recent spate of burst water mains.Meanwhile, Sinn Fein councillor for City North, Maurice Quinlivan, has condemned the persistent failure of Irish Water to keep Limerick residents appraised of water outages. He claimed that residents across the city were becoming increasingly exasperated with the new utility company.“It’s bad enough that interruptions to supply are becoming a daily occurrence, but the failure of Irish Water to give adequate, or in some cases any notice, is making life increasingly difficult for residents”.“When water was controlled by our local authority residents would always be given good notice of any interruption to supply. Now that it’s under the control of this new faceless utility there is no-once willing to take responsibility for keeping residents informed,” he claimed.There was no comment from Irish Water at the time of going to press.
