Wales v Australia – Five things we learnt

first_imgRearguard action: The Wallabies produced one of the great defensive performancesThe countless defensive sets demonstrated an incredibly well-organised defensive line which remained ‘connected’ even with two players or essentially six to eight metres of defensive width sitting in the bin. It was a remarkable statement from the Wallabies and one which continues to rebrand their position in test rugby. The Wallabies are no longer merely a dazzling backline with a lightweight pack and defensive fragilities, they’re the real deal. The Wallabies could win the whole damn thing. Epic battle: Wales and Australia contested a titanic encounter at Twickenham Over and out: Liam Williams added to Wales’ dire injury woesWales faced Australia with a backline which contained more awkward positional changes than even the most psychotic of yoga teachers could devise. Wales have been forced into selecting players who are uncomfortably out of position or, in some cases, desperately out of form. They are now finishing games like a local rugby club’s 2nd XV with three outside halves on the field and a scrum half on the wing. Some took to social media in the wake of the Wallabies defeat to demand more from the Welsh team and for supporters to stop making excuses for the squad when they fail. But that is very difficult to do when the Welsh team are still managing to perform despite their misfortune. This Welsh backline is enduring one of the cruellest runs of injury ever seen at a Rugby World Cup and for that they deserve some praise, not persecution.Charteris improves WalesLuke Charteris is becoming the WD40 of Welsh rugby – when he’s playing things creak less. Against Australia certain aspects of the Welsh game visibly improved through the inclusion of Charteris. His ability to wrap the Australian maul with his giant arms was massively effective and regularly forced the Wallabies to change their point of contact, when against other teams David Pocock would just sit at the back of the bus until it reaches its destination.Top man: Luke Charteris has emerged as a key player for WalesCharteris also had a huge impact on the Welsh lineout which had a completion of 89% – eight from nine. His inclusion against South Africa is a must. The likely combination of Eben Etzebeth and the massively impressive Lood de Jager mean that Wales must have a competitive lineout – as it is unlikely that they will have a competitive scrum.Military defence from the WallabiesThis is supposed to be an article about Wales, but the Wallabies’ defence during the period when they had just 13 men on the field was one of the finest, if not the finest, ten minutes of defensive organisation in the history of the Rugby World Cup. At times it didn’t even look like we were watching sport, it looked like ITV had switched the feed to a military documentary. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Wales lost 15-6 to Australia in a tightly fought contest but despite struggling to break the Wallabies down, there were positives to take… It is possible to play well, and loseRugby is a notoriously complicated game. Yet with laws that sometimes require the use of IBM’s ‘Deep Blue’ computer to decode them, often, the outcomes of games are over simplified. Put simply if you won you played well, if you lost you played badly. But this isn’t always the case and is exactly what occurred when Wales were beaten 15-6 by Australia. Yes, Wales lost but despite the immediate post-match gloom it doesn’t mean they played badly and doesn’t mean they can’t beat South Africa. Wales dominated the bulk of the key performance indicators with 60% of the possession and 63% of the territory. They forced Australia in to making 123 tackles compared to Wales’ 69. Wales crossed Australia’s try line three times – admittedly where they failed to ground effectively. With Luke Charteris back in the starting XV, Wales managed to stem Australia’s highly impressive maul.Work hard: Wales made the Wallabies work extra hard at the tackleThe Welsh backrow competed effectively with arguably the best backrow in the tournament – and punished high carrying Australian body angles with as an effective demonstration of ‘choke tackling’ as you’ll see. The Welsh backs managed to shut down the Wallaby backline, keeping their carrying beneath a combined total of 180 metres – Israel Folau usually carries 130m, solo. There were of course a few downsides which can’t be ignored. The 15 minute period where Wales failed to score a single point against the 13-man Wallabies will have vexed Warren Gatland. Some may argue that Wales should have kicked their three pointers instead of opting for scrums and lineouts – but a two-man advantage is an evil temptress. Plus the Welsh scrum, after Saturday, has been reclassified from an Achilles Heel to an ‘Achilles Limb’. But whilst Wales may have lost, and there are enduring areas of concern, they were mightily competitive and the South African game will be no different.Wales need a new plan at the scrumThe Welsh scrum struggled hugely against the Wallabies, as it has done at every stage during this tournament. It had the appearance of a failed entry on the Great British Bake off – it looked okay when it came out of the oven, but after a couple of bites it collapsed into a mess. Admittedly, the Wallabies’ scrum is arguably the best in the competition and illustrates the almost Gandalf-like wizardry of Mario Ledesma, but this isn’t the first game in which the Welsh scrum has inhibited Wales’s game plan. And with all of the prop and hooker combinations tried, it may be that Wales simply have to scrummage with speed as the objective, not power.Learning zone: Wales’ scrum has been steadily improving all tournamentThere were numerous instances of Wales ‘locking out’ against the Wallabies, only for the secondary shove to make mess of the ball, or on some occasions leave it stranded in the middle of the scrum. It is testament to the amazing skillset of Talaupe Faletau that the Welsh scrum hasn’t been more costly for Wales. The quality of possession dribbling out from the Welsh scrum would make many number eights look like a drunk trying to pick up a kebab from the floor. Wales need a new plan to face South Africa, if the possession from the scrum can’t be solid, then it must be fast.Wales can legitimately start blaming injuries. Using injuries as an excuse is derided in rugby circles. But Wales have moved into the territory where it can be fully justified. This time the unfortunate individual is Liam Williams, who adds to a backline injury-list which already includes Rhys Webb, Scott Williams, Cory Allen, Jonathan Davies, Hallam Amos, Eli Walker, Leigh Halfpenny, and the impact on the squad will be huge. Williams is a versatile player and a key component in the Welsh backline – his defence, running angles, offloads and aerial work will be missed. William’s injury occurred relatively late in the game and as such can’t be blamed for the result against the Wallabies – but the continued and cruel dilution of the Welsh squad is becoming a very real problem in this World Cup.last_img read more

Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanBoth outside and inside, the atmosphere is cooling and calming. As soon as the foot touches the ground of this protected corner-plot, a special feeling wraps itself around you like a soft shawl: A feeling of being pleasantly, mysteriously alone in one of the great forests of Finland – or perhaps of stepping into a universe, where Yin and Yang finally found their perfect balance and harmony. It is quite difficult to believe that actually you are in a very traditional residential neighborhood, Højbjerg, situated in suburban Aarhus. Save this picture!© Mikkel Rahr Mortensen & Gitte KjærUntil recently, this little corner-plot nested a small summer cottage, built during wartime in 1942 and later almost hidden behind tall trees. The cottage has now been integrated into a brand new, tall and very ambitious black beauty. The walls are planked on the outside and the villa opens to its surroundings with windows that are perfectly proportioned for the double purpose of inviting nature in as well as creating a cozy and cooling private space.Save this picture!© Mikkel Rahr Mortensen & Gitte KjærThe villa, which has been awarded the City of Aarhus Architecture Prize 2008, playfully breaks the strictly square shape of the plot in a careful orchestration of angles and split-levels. The way it seems to organically grow into the rich vegetation of pine, temple-tree and rhododendron leaves the baffling impression on the beholder that this villa simply grew out of the ground! Light and ShadowSave this picture!Section 2It was the joint creative forces and dreams of architects Mette and Martin Wienberg that led to this exciting and untraditional framework around their family-life. Atmosphere was the keyword and contrast was an important tool: By creating a covered entrance in a quite strict style dominated by black wood and concrete, they wanted to enhance the experience of the movement from architectural serenity to the open garden – which is organically structured, but sharply defined by raised sleepers that frame and contrast the soft lawn which lies in their embrace almost like a green lake. The plants and the trees are essential to the design: All the flowerbeds are strewn with coarse bark-chips in order to enhance the illusion of “The little house in the forest” and the natural mosaic of the foliage creates changing patterns of shadows and filters the light: This couple did not seek the great panorama, but rather a dynamic variety of intriguing views bringing a unique atmosphere to each and every room.Project gallerySee allShow lessSTUDIO Issue #5: IMPORT-EXPORTArchitecture NewsArtifact Nº1, Scenography for “Manuel Lacunza” / Alfredo ThiermannSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/467165/villa-wienberg-friis-and-moltke-wienberg-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Denmark Year:  Photographs 2008 Area:  184 m² Area:  184 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Mikkel Rahr Mortensen & Gitte Kjær+ 25 Share Houses CopyAbout this officeFriis & MoltkeOfficeFollowWienberg ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAarhusHousesDenmarkPublished on January 16, 2014Cite: “Villa Wienberg / Friis & Moltke + Wienberg Architects ” 16 Jan 2014.

Act, 2000 relates to punishment for the computer-related offence which provides that if any person dishonestly or fraudulently does any act referred to in Section 43.Further, the Court observed that the overt act attributed to the petitioner “does not relate to any of the clauses of Section 43 as the same relates to damage to the computer system.”Thus, the Court remarked that “no offence under Section 66 of the I.T. Act is made out.”Regarding Section 505 of IPC, the Court observed,”Words spoken or written must be with the intent to create/promote or likely to create / promote feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will between two factions separated by religion / caste / language / region / communities.”Importantly, the Court said,”Opinion about a historical fact could be a matter of perceptions. Two historians may not be on the same page on a historical event. A discordant view per se would not attract the offence under Section 505(2) IPC as the same would be saved by Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution i.e. fundamental right of freedom of speech and expression.”Regarding the post made by the Petitioner, the Court said that the author of the post (Petitioner) was only sharing his perception as to in which class would Maharana Pratap fall i.e. as a Kshatriya or a Marwadi.The Court did not find that “the statement was intended to create or promote feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will between two different groups.”The Court said that “mens rea is an important element of this provision which is lacking. The statement is not of such category / character which could create feeling of enmity, hatred or ill-will in the mind of a reasonable man.”Importantly, the Court said that “this provision is not meant to be invoked on the basis of sentiments of a weak / sensitive person.”In the light of the above discussion, the Court took the view that “neither any offence under Section 66 of the I.T. Act nor under Section 505 IPC is made out.”The writ petition was allowed and the FIR dated 15.5.2020 registered as Case Crime No.0137/2020, under Section 66 of the Information Technology (Amendment) Act, 2008 (Act 21 of 2000) & 505 IPC, P.S.

New Austin incident not related to serial bombings, police say

first_imgABC News(AUSTIN, Texas) — Law enforcement officials said an incident involving an artillery simulator that went off in Austin, Texas, Tuesday evening is not related to a series of recent bombings.The string of explosions in Austin, which have left two dead and injured others, has the city on edge and sparked hundreds of law enforcement to descend on the area. Earlier on Tuesday, a package detonated at a FedEx facility near San Antonio, injuring one.Reports of a package explosion at a Goodwill store on Brodie Lane Tuesday night initially sparked panic, but police later said the incident involved an artillery simulator and was not connected to the so-called serial bomber terrorizing the area.A male Goodwill employee was injured when he handled the device, police said in a press conference Tuesday. The device was one of two dropped off in a box at Goodwill, police said, adding that they will investigate who left the devices at the store.Police said there was no reason to believe the incident was a copycat attempt related to the recent bombings.An unexploded package bomb was discovered earlier Tuesday at the FedEx facility in Austin, Texas, two sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News, the sixth device connected to the serial bomber. Among the devices are five package bombs and one device involving a tripwire.The intact package was discovered by FedEx workers, the company said in a statement, and could yield major clues in the hunt for the serial bomber terrorizing Austin.“We have also confirmed that the individual responsible [for Tuesday’s package bomb] also shipped a second package that has now been secured and turned over to law enforcement,” FedEx said in its statement but did not reveal which of its facilities the package was discovered in.The two sources confirmed to ABC News the undetonated package was discovered at an Austin facility.“We have provided law enforcement responsible for this investigation extensive evidence related to these packages and the individual that shipped them collected from our advanced technology security systems,” FedEx said. “The safety and security measures in place across the FedEx networks are designed to protect the safety of our people, customers and communities, and to assist law enforcement as appropriate.”The FBI has discovered a link between packages involved in the Austin bombings and a mail delivery office at a strip mall in the neighboring city of Sunset Valley. Police cordoned off the area and were combing through the office Tuesday.In his first public comments on the Texas bombings, which started March 2, President Donald Trump said the federal government is doing everything it can think of to catch the culprits.“These are sick people and we need to find them immediately,” Trump told reporters at the White House.Tuesday’s explosion in the San Antonio suburb of Schertz occurred about 12:45 a.m. at a FedEx facility. About 65 miles away, two men were injured Sunday night in the fourth bombing in 17 days to rock the Texas capital.Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told the Austin City Council this morning that the package that exploded in Schertz originated at a facility in Austin that has been closed.“A package had been traveling along an automated conveyor when it exploded,” Schertz Police Chief Michael Hanson said at a news conference outside the Schertz FexEx facility this morning.Hanson said the injured worker complained of “ringing in her ears,” was treated at the scene and released.Earlier Tuesday, police told ABC San Antonio affiliate KSAT-TV that the medium-sized box that exploded contained nails and metal shrapnel.Jim McClusky, a spokesman for FedEx, confirmed in a statement to ABC News that “a single package exploded” and that one worker was treated for minor injuries.There were 75 people in the building at the time of the explosion, authorities said.“This is a fluid investigation and we want the general public to know their safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Frank Ortega, ATF acting assistant special agent in charge.He said the ATF’s National Response Team and bomb-sniffing dogs were searching the facility for other possible explosives.Neither Ortega or FBI assistant special agent James Smith, who both spoke at the news conference, would say if investigators definitively believe the explosion is connected to the Austin bombings.Manley said investigators from his department, the FBI and the ATF were working to determine whether the explosive is the work of a serial bomber or bombers who have terrorized Austin since the beginning of the month.“We’ve seen an evolution in the type of devices, the one in Schertz involves a delivery service. What we are seeing here is unprecedented,” Manley told the city council.He cautioned residents to pay close attention to any suspicious device whether it be a package, a bag, a backpack “or anything that looks out of place” and advised residents to immediately call 911 and stay clear of the suspicious items.Manley said Monday at a news conference on the Austin explosions, “Clearly we are dealing with a serial bomber.”Austin residents have been on edge for a month after the series of bombings. The first three bombings were packages, apparently hand-delivered and left on porches of homes before exploding when picked up by residents, police said.The fourth explosion took place Sunday night. Two men, ages 22 and 23, were injured in that blast, which was caused by a device using a tripwire on a sidewalk in the Travis Country neighborhood of Austin.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Fannie, Freddie say housing market could see slight hiccup

first_imgFreddie Mac’s economists said the slowdown will be caused by a hike in mortgage rates and limits on housing supply, which may eventually lead to a slowdown in home prices. Those are projected to rise 6.6 percent this year before slowing to 4.4 percent in 2022, according to Freddie Mac.“As the economy continues to improve, we expect conditions to remain generally favorable for the housing and mortgage market,” Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater said. “Higher mortgage rates have the potential, however, to dampen the robust demand we’ve been experiencing.”The housing giants are bullish on the U.S. economy.
