Nigel Owens tells his side of the story relating to that controversial 2011 Rugby World Cup red card

first_imgMonday Jun 22, 2020 Nigel Owens tells his side of the story relating to that controversial 2011 Rugby World Cup red card Referee Nigel Owens has spoken about the controversial 2011 incident that saw him show a red card following a lashing out after some holding on at the breakdown. At the time, fans felt that the decision was not only harsh but also controversial as there was an apparent conflict of interests.ADVERTISEMENTIn an extremely physical and tense 2011 Rugby World Cup clash between the Springboks and Samoa, Samoan fullback Paul Williams was sent from the field after he lashed out at flanker Heinrich Brussow.Brussow had reacted, with strikes to Williams’ arms, as the Samoan fullback was holding on to him, preventing him from following play. So as Williams got up, he struck Brussow in the face with what most would say was a flat hand.The touch judge was called into action and after a consultation, Welsh referee Owens gave Williams his marching orders. There was somewhat of a backlash after the game.He has now spoken about the incident in an interview with Supersport’s Matthew Pearce.You can watch the full incident again below.

This project is located in a tropical dry forest ecosystem, with an average annual temperature of 28 degrees Celsius that is uniform throughout the year, a feature Cauca River Valley. Because of this, bioclimatic factors such as the generation of shadow or the use of natural ventilation were decisive in the design.Save this picture!© Alejandro ArangoTOPOGRAPHYThis house adapts to the topographical conditions of a lot that was modified earlier: a sloping hillside was cut to produce a flat area and a large rear slope. Given this condition the house makes use of the flat area, but try to restore the profile of the mountain locating the high areas with two levels to the back, and the low areas shaded to the front. In section, we define a low corridor to the landscape and rooms with two levels towards the slope, connected through an inclined reinforced concrete roof that leads the passage of the wind currents from the low to the high areas.Save this picture!Site PlanMODULES In plan the house is defined by four modules coiled around a tree and the distant landscape of the Cauca River. The first module contains the master bedroom, the second and fourth modules contain two guest bedrooms each, and the third has the social and services areas. These modules connected by a corridor define a concave exterior space where the pool and recreation areas are located. Fragmentation in modules and angle changes allow the house to increases its facade area exposed to natural air currents and thereby increase its permeability.Save this picture!© Alejandro ArangoSave this picture!Structural SchemeSave this picture!© Alejandro ArangoCORRIDOR In this case, as in the traditional architecture of the region, the corridor acts as an open, elongated shadow area to hang hammocks and watch the distant landscape; To control the sun and to close this area in some cases, large sliding metal doors were designed with a pattern of 60% perforation, allowing natural ventilation even at times when the space is not open. The house has been located so that the corridor remains shaded almost all year.Save this picture!© Alejandro ArangoSave this picture!© Alejandro ArangoProject gallerySee allShow lessFour Outstanding Housing Projects Win 2016 AIA/HUD Secretary AwardsArchitecture NewsCity of London Building Award 2016 Winners AnnouncedArchitecture News Share MA House / Plan:b arquitectosSave this projectSaveMA House / Plan:b arquitectos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/791083/ma-house-plan-b-arquitectos Clipboard Houseslast_img read more

WWP hosts Philly socialism conference

first_imgUNITE HERE Local 7 member Sara Benjamin at socialist conference, Sept. 13.WW photo: Joseph PietteSome 100 community members, students and activists attended the Philadelphia Workers World Party Socialism Conference on Sept. 13 held at the historic Church of the Advocate, a center of struggle for Black liberation.Speakers included WWP First Secretary Larry Holmes; secretariat members Deirdre Griswold and Sara Flounders; Berta Joubert-Ceci, leader of the Philadelphia branch of Workers World; Scott Williams from Fight Imperialism, Stand Together; and Pam Africa, leader of the MOVE organization and the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal.Temple student activist Katherine Mejía from People Underground for Revolutionary Progress; immigrant activist María Serna; Lamont Lilly, anti-police brutality activist from North Carolina; and Dr. Anthony Monteiro, long-time revolutionary activist from North Philadelphia, were also featured speakers.The conference’s three segments addressed the tasks at hand for the working class and oppressed in the U.S. — the center of world imperialism; the need for a globally united working class to combat capitalist oppression and environmental destruction; and why only socialism can overthrow capitalism and liberate the working class.Several speakers raised the resistance to racism and police brutality exemplified by the uprisings in Ferguson, Mo. As the U.S. ruling class again bangs its war drums, this time with Syria in the crosshairs, conference participants opposed yet another U.S. war. Joyce Chediac, Lebanese-American activist, editor of “Gaza: Symbol of Resistance” and another of the featured speakers, said the U.S. ruling class and military are the primary enemy, not ISIS. She called the heroic resistance in Gaza a setback to Israeli occupation.U.S. imperialism’s systematic destruction of and attacks on progressive organizations in the Middle East left a vacuum for ISIS to gain footholds in the region, Holmes pointed out. Speakers agreed unanimously that there can be no peace or stability in the Middle East while the U.S. bombs people, invades countries and overthrows governments with impunity.Holmes called for principled unity on the left in the face of unbridled capitalist destruction.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

They must learn the rules of the road for creating effective compliance and business development strategies in today’s evolving servicing market.As the practice of mortgage servicing continues to undergo sweeping changes—from SPOC to consent orders and everything in between—servicing finds itself in a near constant state of evolution, mired with rules and policy that make today’s practice more complex than ever.In the 2015 Five Star Conference Servicing Lab, a series of panels and speakers addressed topics such as complaints, regulation, and compliance surrounding the servicing industry.The lab was directed by David B. Little, EVP of Servicing at US Bank. It was hosted by ServiceLink, a Black Knight Company and co-hosted by Home Servicing, Stewart, Safeguard Properties, The Collingwood Group, and Seneca Mortgage Servicing.Eric Selk began the lab discussion by explaining the communication gap that servicers face with borrowers.”It’s all about creating the best relationship and creating action with the borrower,” Selk noted. “This is done by simplifying communication between servicers and borrowers.””It’s all about creating the best relationship and creating action with the borrower.” The next topic addressed was borrower complaints. Paul Nagai, Principal, Ernst & Young kicked off this intense conversation by differentiating inquiries or actual complaints among consumers.”Correctly categorizing complaints is a big issue in the industry,” Nagai said. “The key is figuring out if the customer has an inquiry or an actual complaint.””Think of yourself as a customer, how would you want to be treated,” he added.Ramie Word, VP of Foreclosure, Nationstar Mortgage added, “Complaints are not new. One of the new things is sorting through these complaints.”John Kennedy, Director, Credit Portfolio Management, Fannie Mae threw in the importance of creating a single point-of-contact when borrowers submit complaints.”Fannie Mae is passionate about customer service,” Kennedy said. “We have a philosophy: Treat customers like family. They have a serious issue and they need you.”We do our best to face this everyday with open arms to help them,” he added.Nick Volpe, Vice President of Product Management, First American Mortgage Solutions also noted that “communication can be confusing for borrowers, they don’t understand. It’s inherently confusing if they are they are not in our industry.”Danielle Johnson-Kutch, deputy chief, Homeownership Preservation Office at U.S. Department of the Treasury provided an update on the Making Home Affordable, Hardest Hit Fund, and Home Affordable Modification Programs.Meanwhile, Meg Burns, Managing Director, The Collingwood Group provided a glimpse into the politics surrounding Washington, D.C., and how this affects the mortgage industry.To wrap up the lab, a panel discussed servicing transfers and how to handle these within the industry.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSNews.com.

Retiring economic development leader honored for long-term impact

first_img You Might Like By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author “However, Marsha has had a team approach to every presentation the PCEDC makes,” Lunsford said. “Her ability to identify who should be a part of each team is very important and, then, to have the team present and make sure that all the bases are covered during recruitment is vital to the success of the presentation. Marsha does that better than anyone in the state.” Lunsford said the projects that Gaylard has worked on have had major impact, not only on the dollars they have generated for the local economy directly,  but also through the indirect income they provided through the jobs provided.“Added together, Marsha has been instrumental in bringing nearly 3,000 new jobs to Pike County,” he said. “There is no way to equate what she means to the Pike County economy and to the individuals who have benefited from good-paying jobs with good benefits.”Jimmy Ramage, former Brundidge mayor and First National Bank of Brundidge board chair, said the City of Brundidge appreciates Gaylard’s hard work on the Walmart DC, Southern Classic Food Group and Magnolia Vegetable Processing projects.“Marsha helped with work on the various issues that had to be addressed when completing these type projects,” he said. “Her leadership and dedication to these projects made the tasks easier for us. These projects employ a large number of people in Brundidge and the surrounding area. We thank Marsha for a job well done and hope she has a great retirement.”Wiley Lott, South East Alabama Gas District, director of External Affairs and Economic Development, said Gaylard is a friend; she’s like family.“And she has been a true blessing to Pike County.”“Just think of the impact that Marsha has had over her career in economic development that started back in the mid-80s,” Lott said. “She has been a true blessing in the jobs that she has helped create and the ones that she has helped expand.”Lott and Gaylard worked closely together on the Walmart DC project in his hometown of Brundidge.“Marsha was marvelous help in making that deal a reality,” he said. “All of Pike County has been blessed because of the work she has done.”Gary Guthrie, PCEDC board member said, from the start, Gaylard has been the glue that kept the Economic Development Corporation together. Marsha surrounds herself with good people and she knows how to make good contacts. I admire her for what she has done behind the scenes to get us where we are today, to get the businesses that we have and to keep the torch going.”However, Guthrie said the newly organized PCEDC struggled at the start.“Max Davis and Jimmy Ramage had to help find the funds that we need and they found what we needed to sustain us. In Pike County, we have been fortunate to get the people to put things in place to be successful.“Marsha knew the right people to help us put the Pike County Economic Development Corporation together to be successful. Her relationships, partnered with her ideas and leadership, made it possible to bring so many businesses and industries to Pike County.”Guthrie added that Gaylard’s contact in the state “smooth-talked us into a lot of good jobs for the people of Pike County and around the area.”Ted Clem, director, Office of Business Recruitment and Retention, Alabama Department of Commerce, said is a dedicated economic development professional who has left an imprint on the City of Troy and Pike County that will last for generations.“Marsha has played key roles in recruiting companies like Lockheed Martin and Kimber to Pike County and has worked tirelessly with existing industries in the area to help them grow and prosper,” Clem said. I have enjoyed working with Marsha over the years and always took note of her love for the community.  Anytime we would bring a prospective business to Pike County we knew we could trust Marsha to present her community in the best way possible.  I will especially miss the lunch meetings with clients in her boardroom that often featured Marsha’s southern home cooking.  On top of being a first-rate economic developer, she is a great cook.”Kenny Campbell, PCEDC board member and KW Plastics president, said he has had first-hand opportunities to work with Gaylard.“I’ve been with Marsha on recruiting trips and I’m always amazed at how she works,” Campbell said. “I have been impressed with her attention to detail. She never overlooks anything. That’s what has made her so successful. She does things so well that she has spoiled all of us. Marsha is leaving some very big shoes to be filled and she certainly will be missed.”Troy Mayor Jason Reeves said he has known Gaylard for more than 25 years.“I knew Marsha first from a personal standpoint,” Reeves said. “Her husband, Bo, was my Sunday school teacher and baseball coach and their son, Derrick, and I have always been close. So, I learned to appreciate Marsha, first, from that standpoint – as a mother-type figure, taking care of the people around her.”Reeves said, as an adult, he saw that same caring spirit in Gaylard when the two of them were in New York working on the Kimber project.“While there, I got word that my good friend, Eric Mizell, had died,” Reeves said. “Being a thousand miles away with economic recruitment in front of me, I appreciated so much Marsha’s kindness and support that day.”Reeves said Gaylard has the ability to deal with the demanding issues of economic development and the same ability as a hostess for the PCEDC. “Marsha’s record speaks for itself,” he said. “The economic landscape of Pike County had change tremendously through her service. We appreciate what she has accomplished for Pike County and wish her all the best in retirement.” Published 6:19 pm Friday, July 31, 2020 Book Nook to reopen Gaylard’s career in the business world began working in the upstairs office at Rosenberg’s Dollar Store in downtown Troy. Her resume includes working in the insurance business and owning an interior decorating business in Montgomery before joining the Troy Chamber of Commerce and then Pike County Chamber of Commerce as president before homesteading at the Pike County Economic Development Corporation.John Ramage, PCED Board president, said the corporation was founded in 2002 with the sole purpose of recruitment, retention and expansion of both industrial and retail business. “Marsha has served as the only president of the PCEDC,” Ramage said. “Pike County is a much different place than it was in 2002 and, while Marsha and the EDC are not solely responsible for the growth, they both played a role in many of the new businesses that have located to Pike County during this time. The Board and its funding partners are grateful to Marsha and to the numerous successes she has had during her tenure.Jimmy Lunsford, who has worked with Gaylard as Mayor of Troy and as a consultant for the PCEDC, said Gaylard has always said that she is just a part of a team and that is true.

I want to have more time with my family and to myself.”Gaylard admitted there is something a little unsettling about retirement. It brings about a different way of life and she’s not sure how she will adjust to “different.” She is accustomed to a vibrant, energetic and motivated workplace with highs and lows. She’s not sure how she will adjust to the “sit back and kick your shoes off” way of life.“It will take time but I’m sure I will be able to relax and enjoy the slower pace of what retirement brings.

Mother arrested after 3-year-old daughter found dead in duffel bag in closet

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) — Police have arrested a woman in Las Vegas who had said her daughter wandered off before officers found the girl’s body in a duffel bag in a closet, according to authorities.The incident began when officers arrived to investigate a report of a missing 3-year-old on Aug. 23, just before 10 p.m., the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement Friday.The mother, Aisha Thomas, told officers she was walking to a store with four kids when “the 3-year-old wandered off while she was talking with someone else,” police said.Thomas gave police a key to her apartment and, while searching the closet in the master bedroom, an officer noticed a “wet, moldy smell” coming from a black duffel bag, according to the arrest report.The officer found layers of trash bags in the bag — and a girl who wasn’t breathing and was cold to the touch, according to the police report.She had abrasions and bruises on her head, the report said.Thomas repeated her initial story that the child had wandered off, according to the report, before admitting that the 3-year-old had wet herself and Thomas hit her on the head.The girl fell to the ground and wouldn’t stop crying, according to the report, and Thomas said she tried to quiet her and gave her water.Thomas, who was arrested last Friday, told police she left the apartment for about 10 minutes, and when she came back, the girl was wrapped in a blanket in the master bedroom, the report said.Her daughter wasn’t breathing, so Thomas said she “panicked” and wrapped the girl in multiple trash bags before putting her inside a duffel bag and putting the bag in the closet, the report said.Thomas, 29, was arrested for one count of murder, police said.The three other children at the scene were put in the care of Child Protective Services, police said.Thomas has not yet entered a plea but plans to plead not guilty at the first available opportunity, according to her public defender, Sarah Hawkins.Hawkins declined to comment further.Thomas’ preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 1.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
