Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 11

first_imgThursday Apr 29, 2010 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 11 With just three rounds left to play, the positions at the top of the Super 14 table couldnt be tighter. Going into round 12 there are still a possible nine teams that can make the semis. Today were taking a look at the best tries from the previous round, round 11.There was plenty of quality on show once again, so instead of listing them all, well keep this short and touch on whats going to happen in the upcoming round.The Bulls are back at home, as they were against the Lions, and theyve received the boost of Bakkies Botha returning to action. Theyll play a crucial match against the Sharks this weekend, who will be hoping to upset their fellow 2007 finalists.The second placed Stormers, who went down to the in form Reds, will host the Crusaders in Cape Town in what will be a massive match for both sides as it could determine who makes the semis, and where they will be played.The Reds will take on the Brumbies in Canberra fresh from a good win over the Stormers. Will Chambers scored a well taken try from a great Quade Cooper crosskick in round 11, so theyll take confidence from that win and look to move the ball, as they have all season.That covers the top sides, but theres also the hopefuls that still stand a chance, with the Waratahs taking on the Highlanders, the Hurricanes facing the Chiefs, the Blues against the Cheetahs, and the Lions hosting the Force.But for now you can check out the best tries from the previous round with the always entertaining, Pick of the Week.

Newry House / Austin Maynard Architects

PivotDoorsVitrocsaGlass Technology in Hotel BeaulacText description provided by the architects. The owners of Newry, a family of four, wanted to renovate their single-fronted terrace home in inner-city Melbourne, on a tight budget. Though the house had already been renovated in the 90s, the two storey addition at the back failed to address the primary issue, a lack of light. The owners asked Austin Maynard Architects to reconfigure their living zone to allow in sunlight and make better use of their limited space. Save this picture!© Tess KellyKeywhole Surgery. Situated amongst a row of adjoined terraces, Newry is a fairly small family home which has been dramatically transformed by a relatively small renovation. As an architectural ‘operation’, it’s akin to keyhole surgery. Here, a small incision has been made to access and fix the problematic central core, to maximum effect. Save this picture!© Tess KellyThrough years and years of learning, Austin Maynard Architects have become incredibly incisive dealing with the problems of dark and poorly laid out terraced houses. Though typically, in terms of design and build, the team is more inclined to chop off a limb and add new cyborg arm, the restraints of budget, (as well as ego and eco-conscience), led to a more considered and restrained approach.Save this picture!© Tess KellyThe ‘90s addition was structurally sound. The bathroom and laundry at the rear were neat and functional. To demolish, simply because it wasn’t in the ideal location, would have been wasteful. Instead, discipline was required to work with what was already there, implementing strategic moves to solve and improve.Save this picture!© Tess KellyThe Core. Apart from new carpets and joinery in all three bedrooms, the front and the back parts of the house remain largely untouched. The ‘rotten’ middle section of the house was gutted, including the old timber floor, replaced by a thermally efficient, hydronically heated, concrete slab. A wall that once separated the kitchen from one of the smallest, darkest, bleakest dining rooms to ever exist, was also removed, opening up the kitchen/living-dining space. The ceiling, and above it a leaky roof deck outside the main bedroom, was also demolished and a large pitched glass roof with sliding awnings installed.Save this picture!© Tess KellyPart of the client brief was to not build bigger but to design better. Their old kitchen had a huge amount of wasted space, which was very inefficient and difficult to access. The space was compact and so the staircase, kitchen, and storage are all combined into one object. A merging of perforated steel and blackbutt timber, concealing doors, drawers, and cupboards. In the centre a beautiful Studio Italia bench provides further storage. The exposed garden has been integrated into a bench seat, optimising space in the dining area.Save this picture!© Tess KellyAn indoor garden. The fundamental concern with most terrace houses is a lack of natural light. This problem is generally resolved with some form of light well, open to the sky with some kind of garden greenery at the base. At Newry there is no lightwell, no ‘box’, the garden greenery is inside, integrated within the space, exposed and easily accessed beneath a glass roof that allows for an abundance of natural light.In a space that is already tight, the question was, why take away indoor space to capture outdoor space? Instead, we focused on the conservatory idea; a glasshouse that brings the outdoors inside, with responsive sliding shade awnings to shield from too much sun. In seconds the raised shading can be remotely closed, (partly, fully, on one side, etc), to provide almost 100% protection from UV rays.Save this picture!© Tess KellyColor run. It wouldn’t be an Austin Maynard Architects project without moments of discovery and delight, although at Newry these were largely thanks to the client’s great taste.  The home’s modest palate is dashed with colour that pops and converses throughout the whole house. The perforated steel staircase – bright white but for a surprise twist of vivid green at the top is a nod to the green of the garden and the bench seat. The rich burgundy Tretford carpet in the entrance hall balanced by the sofa in the living room.Save this picture!© Tess KellyMaking allowances. Newry is a small project, much smaller than AMA usually undertakes. The clients were locals, neighbours who posed an interesting challenge. They wanted to dramatically improve their home-life and also the way their home performed (on a thermal and sustainable level) but were aware of their limitations and were prepared to pick their battles.  Instead of spending their tight budget thinly across the entire site, and compromising everywhere, they chose to completely subvert one area, the main living space, and do it very well. They identified how they lived as a family and prioritised their needs and wants. Focusing on one area is difficult, but it’s a great way to deal with the budget.Save this picture!© Tess KellySustainability. Sustainability is always at the core of Austin Maynard Architects’ work. Most old homes, or 80s/90s renovations, tend to be breezy, cold, and thermally inefficient. A few straightforward moves can solve these issues. At Newry, windows and doors have been re-fitted with thermally separated double glazing. Drafty timber floorboards have been replaced with hydronic heated concrete.Save this picture!© Tess KellyThe installation of a Tesla battery ensures the home not only performs well but pumps excess green energy back in to the grid. With the ongoing dilemma of air conditioning, caused by increased weather extremes, good design and passive solar gains are not always enough. A solution is to work with the natural elements to ensure carbon zero is attained.Save this picture!© Tess KellyProject gallerySee allShow lessGrillicious Restaurant / ForX Design StudioSelected ProjectsJinan Greentown Financial Center / gadSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Tess Kelly Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia Newry House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveNewry House / Austin Maynard Architects “COPY” Moon Building Group Save this picture!© Tess Kelly+ 34Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” Australia Year:  CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on April 28, 2020Cite: “Newry House / Austin Maynard Architects” 27 Apr 2020.

In the absence of any charges against him, we call for his immediate and unconditional release.”Police broke down the door of his home in Sanabis, a locality to the west of the capital, at around 4 a.m. and took Radhi away without showing any warrant. The authorities have not announced any charges but Reporters Without Borders has been told that he could be brought before a judge as early as tomorrow.His family thinks he was arrested for criticizing a proposed union of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia in interviews he gave to BBC Arabic Radio and the London-based exile television station, Lulu TV. Radhi had posted excerpts of the BBC Arabic interview on Facebook.Aged 35, Radhi has had many run-ins with the authorities in the past. The Bahrain Press Association said he was jailed and tortured at the end of the 1990s, suffering a permanent partial hearing loss. In the early 2000s, he worked for the local daily Al-Ayyam and the Lebanese TV station Al-Manar, whose coverage angered the government so much that his accreditation was withdrawn for two years. Since then he has freelanced and keeps a blog on Bahrain.Journalists are often the target of harassment and arrests in Bahrain, whose ruler, King Hamad Ben Aissa Al-Khalifa, is on the Reporters Without Borders list of predators of press freedom. Last year, Reporters Without Borders ranked Manama as one of the world’s ten most dangerous places for media personnel.

Then we dreamed and hoped for a win in the referendum. We dared to dream and hope that we would get the yes vote over the line.“But in our wildest dreams – in our most delirious and hopeful of moments – we never once thought that Ireland would not just support us, but that Irish people would stand up and roar that it had to stop. That they would not just repeal the Eighth Amendment but that they would lay siege to the Eighth Amendment and destroy the Eighth amendment.”Meanwhile, in masses across the diocese over the weekend, a letter from Bishop Brendan Leahy, Bishop of Limerick noted the day was “a day of mixed emotions for members of this congregation and for Catholic faithful everywhere across Ireland”.Beckha Doyle ( former member of Citizens Assembly), Senator Paul Gavan (Sinn Féin), Jan O Sullivan TD (Labour), MC Thomas Bibby (Green Party), Jennifer Schweppe (Limerick Together for Yes) & Ailbhe Smyth (Together for Yes).The letter read, “There will be people here who voted to repeal the Eighth amendment and people who voted to protect the Eighth amendment. As I said last week Ireland is a compassionate country, that we are a compassionate people. Those who voted no did so with compassion, particularly for the unborn child. Those who voted yes did so with an eye particularly on the mother carrying that child.”The Limerick Together for Yes speakers said the day had been “35 years in the making”, and wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for women and activists throughout Limerick and across the world. “We stand on the shoulders of women and activists who have come before us and sacrificed so much,” They said, adding, “They spoke when nobody else would speak. They spoke when nobody would listen. But today we have spoken and Ireland has listened.”Bishop Leahy acknowledged the vote would not change their position, “Our message is one of love; love for all, love for life, for those with us today, for those in the womb. And God’s love is there also for those on both sides of the Referendum campaign.”“I have already expressed my gratitude to all who were missionaries for life and actively gave of their time and energy to promote the cause of life. They dedicated themselves to the task with care, listening and sensitivity. I am grateful too that, in general, the debate was largely respectful.”The Limerick Together for Yes spokespeople said the group had created a movement in Limerick in a short few months, “Since our first meeting in a little cafe on Denmark we have grown into something amazing. We have grown into a movement,”Bishop Brendan LeahyThey continued, “that movement, from day one, was respectful, inclusive, and informed. People from all backgrounds and walks of life joined us in our fight for full reproductive rights.”The Limerick Bishop mentions some of the stories heard through the campaign have given “a sense of women’s immense pain and suffering”“While the Church’s position is that life in or out of the womb is to be protected, it is only right that we have heard these stories and got a sense of women’s immense pain and distress. So often, women were left on their own at that time, perhaps with the support only of a friend, perhaps immediate family. But not much else.“A message we can take, therefore, from the stories we’ve heard is that we have ultimately failed them as a society if we allow them to be isolated.  We need to engender more coherently a society of care, a society of support so that the default for women in these circumstances is to turn to that society and know that it wraps them in a blanket of love and support.  That it is there for them in this difficult time and that it does not judge them.”Limerick overwhelmingly voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment, with Limerick City and Limerick County voting 69.9 per cent and 58.1 per cent in favour of repeal respectively.
