Andy Farrell favourite to coach British & Irish Lions in 2021ANDY FARRELL has emerged as the front-runner to take the top job with the British & Irish Lions in South Africa in 2021.According to bookmakers SportNation, the former Super League Man of Steel and current Ireland defence coach is considered evens to head up the touring party. Farrell has served as an assistant and defence coach on the previous two Lions tours.This comes soon after it was announced that Farrell would take over from Joe Schmidt as Ireland head coach following the Rugby World Cup in Japan.Schmidt – who has guided Ireland to two wins over the All Blacks during his reign – has stated that he will finish with coaching to focus on his family after the showpiece in Japan, but is still joint-second favourite for the Lions post at 4/1, according to SportNation. He is joined at that price by current England head coach Eddie Jones.Available: England boss Eddie Jones is free to talk with the Lions bossesIn January, Jones signed a new deal with the Rugby Football Union that had wiggle room for Jones to work with the Lions if all parties are interested. At the time now-outgoing England CEO Steve Brown said of the deal: “Bear in mind that we’re a quarter-shareholder in the Lions and we’ll have some say in that too.“Our view would be that if we’re planning for success, and we’ve come out of a very successful World Cup, and Eddie is the right coach for the Lions, the arrangement isn’t going to preclude that.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The current odds being offered by SportNation are:Andy Farrell EvensEddie Jones 4/1Joe Schmidt 4/1Mark McCall 8/1Gregor Townsend 10/1Dai Young 14/1Warren Gatland 18/1Rob Howley 33/1Despite having publicly ruled himself out of the running to replace Eddie Jones as England head coach following the 2019 World Cup, Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall is fourth on the list at 8/1.

Courtyard House / Buensalido Architects

The owners of the house, a young couple who are both editors for a national daily broadsheet, bought the house on the spot even though it was almost in a dilapidated state, because of the potential that they saw in the spatial qualities rather than physical. they knew that they structure’s physicality can be improved through simple repairs. It was a rundown structure probably constructed in the 80s (with the typical arched collonades and annay finish prevalent during those times), which didn’t maximize its own potential in terms of space and aesthetics.Save this picture!Courtesy of Buensalido ArchitectsRecommended ProductsWindowsAccoyaAccoya® Windows and DoorsDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaLouvers / ShuttersLunawoodThermowood BattensDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalWhen we (buensalido+architects) saw the site condition, we were quick to agree that the structure could be converted into a unique residence by giving focus to an open, pre-existing courtyard right in the middle of the house. Instead of an excluded outdoor space, it is now stitched to all its rooms as they all flow into it both physically and visually. By employing a series of glass skylights above the courtyard, it now becomes part of the interior spaces as it can be used as an extension of the living and dining areas, but at the same time feel aif it were an outdoor space as people can still catch glimpses of the sky through the glass cut outs on the ceiling.Save this picture!Courtesy of Buensalido ArchitectsThese cut outs on the ceiling were derived from an exercise of scale. The dimensions of these cut outs originate from the size of the courtyard, mirroring its shape and importance in the house. These imaginary boxes were then plastered all over the ceiling in different sizes to become cut outs from which concealed lighting emanate. These cut outs also become skylights in select areas, flooding the interiors with natural light and an ever changing play of shadows, depending on the location of the sun. On the east portion of the house is what we fondly call the ‘axis’, which is considered as the accent space for the interiors. Ts is where the pedestrian gate, approach, foyer, and an interior rock garden is located, further blurring the boundary between inside and out.Save this picture!Courtesy of Buensalido ArchitectsThe facade, which was originally designed as a series of triangular gable roofs, were squared off to achieve a more contemporary aesthetic. An ‘architectural frame’ wraps its entire surface which appears simply 2-dimensional, but then it continues to become a 3-dimensional form as it juts out to become a plant box. This frame is rendereded in stucco white, accentuated with treated wood planks stained in black. This black and white color scheme becomes the theme even for the interiors of the house, as reflected in the surfaces, shelves, cabinets, and furniture.Save this picture!Courtesy of Buensalido ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessCentre for Promotion of Science 2010 WinnersArticlesShan-Shui Master Plan / Steven Holl ArchitectsArticles Share Projects CopyHouses•Manila, Philippinescenter_img Year:  “COPY” Houses Courtyard House / Buensalido ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCourtyard House / Buensalido Architects 2010 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/99799/courtyard-house-buensalido-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBuensalido ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesManila3D ModelingPhilippinesPublished on January 02, 2011Cite: “Courtyard House / Buensalido Architects” 02 Jan 2011.

Update on press freedom in Cameroon as president visits France

first_imgNews News Cameroonian reporter jailed since August, abandoned by justice system CameroonAfrica Receive email alerts Journalists are still arrested or threatened and one is currently serving a three-year prison sentence, Reporters Without Borders said in an update on press freedom in Cameroon on the day of a meeting in Paris between Cameroonian President Paul Biya and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.“Respect for press freedom has improved markedly in recent years in Cameroon and blind repression of journalists seems to be a thing of the past, but journalists still often suffer at the hand of overzealous police officers or corrupt judges or as a result of score-settling between politicians,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We urge President Biya to do what is necessary to provide durable protection to journalists and we reiterate our call for the release of Lewis Medjo, the editor of the weekly La Détente Libre,” the press freedom organisation added.Medjo has been detained in the southwestern city of Douala since 26 September 2008 for publishing a report about an alleged ploy by President Biya to get the supreme court president to retire early. A court sentenced him on 7 January to three years in prison and a fine of 2 million CFA francs (about 3,000 euros).The editor of the weekly Le Jeune Observateur, Jules Koum Koum, and a member of his staff, Jacques Nkul, were ordered to present themselves to a Douala police station on 20 July. Koum, who is also the Reporters Without Borders Cameroon correspondent, regarded the summons as an abuse of authority and reported it to the Cameroonian attorney general.A dozen of journalists have been the target of lawsuits and prosecutions in connection with their work in the past two and a half years.The Cameroonian media are quite dynamic but the economic environment is difficult and journalists are exposed to threats. Censorship was abolished some 15 years ago but the government has retained articles in the press code that provide for severe penalties for press offences. A newspaper reporter or editor can be sentenced to several years in prison for an article that is deemed to be libellous.

French judge receives families of journalists murdered in Mali

first_img Judge Jean-Marc Herbaut received the families in the anti-terrorism department of the central law courts in Paris. Representatives of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and Radio France Internationale (RFI), the French public broadcaster for whom Dupont and Verlon worked, also attended. The meeting, which lasted several hours, was the first hearing in the case since Herbaut took over the French judicial investigation in October 2015.Dupont and Verlon were kidnapped in Kidal, in northern Mali, shortly after interviewing Amberri Ag Rhissa, one of the chiefs of the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA) on 2 November 2013.Their abductors shot them dead in the desert some 10 to 20 minutes later when their vehicle broke down. Abdelkrim al Tuareg, the head of the jihadi group Katiba Al Ansar, subsequently claimed their double-murder. According to the French army, he was later killed in combat.“We welcome Judge Herbaut’s initiative and his declared desire to press on with the investigation,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This is a complex case in which several aspects have resisted clarification but we hope that all leads will be pursued so that the investigation can advance as quickly as possible and the suspects who are still alive can be quickly identified and located.”The judge said newly emerged evidence has confirmed the theory that Dupont and Verlon were killed when a kidnapping for ransom went wrong. He also said the investigation was complicated by the fact that Mali’s authorities do not control the north of the country and that, although willing to help the investigation, Mali’s justice department badly lacks resources.New requests for the declassification of evidence have meanwhile also been submitted.Dupont’s two computers, a professional one and a personal one, were handed over to the judge for analysis by experts because, according to an investigation by the French TV current affairs programme Envoyé Spécial, someone hacked into Dupont’s computer remotely on the day she was murdered.Dupont’s mother said the families have had to wait too long for the truth. “Four years later, we still have no answer. Every evening, my head spins with the craziest scenarios. We need to understand what happened and why they were killed.”Mali is ranked 116th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. More information here about the murders of the two RFI journalists and about continuing investigation. In a long a meeting in Paris yesterday, the judge in charge of the French investigation into the double murder of French journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon in northern Mali in 2013 briefed the families about the latest developments in the case and assured them he was determined to identify those responsible.

Democratic Senators Call For Investigation of Possible Discrimination in REO Maintenance

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Democratic Senators Call For Investigation of Possible Discrimination in REO Maintenance Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Foreclosures REO properties Senate Banking Committee Senator Bob Menendez 2015-06-25 Brian Honea A group of Democratic Senators led by Bob Menendez (D- New Jersey) has written a letter to the leaders of several government agencies calling for an investigation to determine if banks and lenders violated the Fair Housing Act by neglecting maintenance of foreclosed and REO homes in minority-dominated neighborhoods.The Senators cited a recent report by the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) which alleged that REO properties in minority-dominated neighborhoods were more than twice as likely to have deficiencies such significant amounts of trash and debris, and unsecured, broken, or damaged doors than REO properties in predominantly white neighborhoods. The report covered more than 2,400 REO properties in 29 metro areas, owned or managed by 11 lenders.”We strongly urge you—as regulators of the entities responsible for ensuring these properties are maintained, marketed, and sold to qualified buyers—to investigate this issue,” the Senators wrote in their letter. “As we are sure you agree, stabilization for our country’s communities most impacted by the foreclosure crisis will require financial institutions to properly maintain and market REO homes regardless of the color of the skin or nation of origin of the other homeowners who live on the block.”Several organizations have come out in support of the Senators’ letter, including (alphabetically) the American Civil Liberties Union, Americans for Financial Reform, Center for Responsible Lending, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development, National Council of La Raza, National Fair Housing Alliance, National Low Income Housing Coalition, PolicyLink, and Poverty and Race Research Action Council, according to Menendez’s website.”Foreclosed properties remain in neighborhoods across the country, but we must do all that we can to make sure they are equally well-taken care of to get them in the hands of homeowners,” said Shanna L. Smith, President and CEO of the National Fair Housing Alliance. “We know that poorly maintained properties have a higher likelihood of selling to absentee investors, deflate neighborhood property values and contribute to negative health outcomes for residents who live near these eyesores. The federal financial and housing regulators have an opportunity and obligation to ensure that foreclosed homes are used as agents of community stabilization, not to further depress property values and the local tax base.”Click here to view a copy of the Senators’ letter. Co-signers of the letter were Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), Barbara Boxer (D-California), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Cory Booker (D-New Jersey), Martin Heinrich (D-New Mexico), Ben Cardin (D-Maryland), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin), Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut), Chuck Schumer (D-New York), and Tim Kaine (D-Virginia).  Mendendez, Brown, Warren, and Schumer are members of the Senate Banking Committee, and Menendez is the Ranking Member of the Senate Subcommittee on Housing, Transportation, and Community Development.The letter was addressed to HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Fed Chair Janet Yellen, Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry, FDIC Chair Martin Gruenberg, CFPB Director Richard Cordray, NCUA Chair Debbie Matz, and FHFA Director Melvin Watt.
