On a comparison of the last three months with the previous three months, which helps iron out volatility, sales were narrowly up 0.1 per cent.“The average level of retail sales volumes in January-February is 0.5 per cent above the average in the last three months of 2010,” said Citigroup’s Michael Saunders. last_img read more

No more pipes for Robinson

first_img Over and out: Robinson stood down as Scotland coach following the humiliating defeat to TongaBy Alan Dymock THE PIPES have stopped their skirl. The flags are at half mast, unruffled by a gust. Andy Robinson has abdicated his post at the top of Scotland’s game and few can muster the spirit to pass him on with more than a round of applause.Robinson had climbed out of the ashes of his international coaching career with England and taken the trip up north, looking for something different. No doubt haunted by the ghost of selection issues past and too assured of his unquestionable talents to take a step back into the English Premiership, he arrived in Edinburgh.All at once athletes were gurning and gushing with praise. He was a hard task master, the Edinburgh players would say, but his clarity of vision was inspiring. He coached individuals within a larger setting; at pace; with lucidity. His precise work at breakdowns and with offloads complemented Edinburgh Rugby handsomely.He was very quickly pulled up a rank.In truth it was preordained somewhere – perhaps in the stars – that he would return to international rugby. He was too forthright and too knowledgeable to be scrambling around the Celtic League, it was agreed.He already had the pulpit at Murrayfield, but he needed a bigger congregation. So he was handed a nation and told to get preaching.Passion is something Robinson has always had, and always will have. His national allegiances were questioned at first, but within three conference’s time he had dispelled any preposterous notions of not being Scottish enough. He was rugby enough. He was hard enough to take a public skelping when Scotland underperformed again.Happy times: celebrating the win over SA in November 2010So he set about tearing down walls at EH12, pulling coaches up around him and all the while asking questions about structure and how his vision met with those clutching the purse strings. Some walls within Murrayfield bear heavy loads, though. Scotland flanker Nathan Hines (L) and head coach Andy Robinson (R) celebrate after their 21-17 victory in the Autumn International rugby union match between Scotland and South Africa at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, Scotland on November 20, 2010. AFP PHOTO/GRAHAM STUART (Photo credit should read GRAHAM STUART/AFP/Getty Images) Robinson’s famously astute brain was turned on both pro sides, rather than one, and he played a hand in recruitment and message. Some appointments within the Union were made after the coach and his superiors had consultations. Not often were roles even advertised. He was decisive.However, on the field with Scotland he could not get in there and do it himself. For this very reason talk of Robinson will always have the line ‘good coach’ being immediately followed by parenthesis of some sort.In his leaving press release as Head Coach, Robinson said that he left the Scotland team in a better position than he found it. To an extent this is true, as the forensic approach to training and analysis and the constant search for new attacking players has improved the team. It was in major tournaments that he flattered to deceive, though.The vibrant, calculating coach in him oversaw some landmark victories. Indeed, Robinson had the best record against Southern Hemisphere sides when he left, having masterminded victories against Australia and South Africa and against Argentina in a series in South America. He just could not get his limited playing resources to produce in the Six Nations or the World Cup.Famous victories were built on defence, hustle and free-spirited offloads. When it came to games of meaning and bouts for trophies, though, the old Andy adage of ‘build a score’ came in to play and his players became conservative and obtuse with that remit. They could not match Robinson’s demands and this led to crossfield kicks in the World Cup, lost balls, intercepts and charge downs against Europe’s best.Robinson departs as a fine coach and a good man: a fine coach and good man who won half his games against southern sides and who was only victorious in two Six Nations matches.He should be politely thanked before some of his walls are torn down or rebuilt amidst the clamour for better times.

Award Jury Citation:“Designed and built by the architect, the jury was struck by his questioning of the nature of a house and its relationship to the public domain. This house is rich in exploration – from its minimal footprint and budget to its engagement with its immediate surroundings and nearby highway. Internal spaces are blurred by the split-level arrangement of private to public with an emphasis on the high-ceiling living area, which spills out onto a covered terrace. Internally, colour and texture are richly celebrated. Externally, the house is a dark shell apart from the significant and provocative northern facade overlooking the highway below. This house deserves high recognition by virtue of its character: playful and confident, modest in size, yet bold in expression.”Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettArchitects Design StatementSituated on a northeast facing slope adjacent a major arterial road, the Southern Outlet House is a site specific study of the contribution a private residence may make to the public domain and the role of architecture more broadly in a small regional centre.The core requirements of a climatically responsive and welcoming family home underpin the project. The building is sited and planned to maximize the attributes of the location and work within the constraints of a steep slope and restrictive budget.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettAdopting a strategy from early 20th Century naval camouflage, the dazzle technique is employed, not in order to conceal the mass of building, but rather to manipulate its public face, adjust its scale, and suggest another dimension to the otherwise flat facade. The building acknowledges people passing by in vehicles at speed, as well as those living on the hill opposite who view back to the static object.The public face is perhaps changed in its form and nature and becomes just another highway directional sign, vehicle, billboard or piece of public art.Ultimately the scheme is the inevitable consequence of a situation where the owner, architect and builder are the same person.Save this picture!Floor PlanConceptual frameworkBroadly, three key themes underpinned the entire decision making process during design and construction.i. The opportunities and consequences of a situation where the owner, architect and builder are the same person.ii. The opportunities and constraints of pushing a limited budget while remaining true to the core brief requirement of making a comfortable and welcoming family home which is closely connected to outside and the garden.iii. The specific site opportunities and contribution a private residence may make to the public domain.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettPublic and Cultural BenefitsAdopting a strategy from early 20th Century naval camouflage, the dazzle technique is employed, not in order to conceal the mass of building, but rather to manipulate its public face, adjust its scale, and suggest another dimension to the otherwise flat facade. The building acknowledges people passing by in vehicles at speed, as well as those living on the hill opposite who view back to the static object. The impact of heavy vehicle traffic and large rectangular loads are transformed and referenced in the formal strategy, and ultimately most literally in the addition of truck lights to define the roof edge. The public face is perhaps changed in its form and nature and becomes just another highway directional sign, vehicle, billboard or piece of public art.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettRelationship of Built Form to ContextThe steep site is mediated by defining a finished floor level and single storey roof level as close as practicable to the natural ground to ensure vehicular access. The entire building then stretches out across the slope with the continuous roof line eventually becoming 2 storeys high. The building volumes step down the slope below the roof line. This strategy ensured a single building section and roof / gutter detail linked to managing budget and buildability. The built form grows large in its context from some viewpoints, yet is also diminutive from others. A 6m deep plan contributes to the reduction in scale of the east and west elevations. Further the dark façade colour of the three elevations immediately adjacent the neighboring properties, lessens the visual impact of the building.Save this picture!Site PlanProgram ResolutionA high ceiling to the living area is accommodated and near level access to the garden from the living is ensured. Each living space then has a very different connection and experience of the site and broader context. The terrace and outdoor living space focuses on the foreground garden, native bush and high level foliage. The dining wall opening removes the foreground and focuses on the city view opposite and mountains beyond. The lounge incorporates both the arterial road and distant views beyond.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettCost / Value OutcomeActing as owner and builder contributed significantly to a low cost outcome.Further, efficient planning and limiting the built floor area assisted in managing the budget. The terrace and outdoor living area becomes a protected extension of the internal living area, doubles its size but is relatively low cost. High cost building products were used strategically to maximize their effectiveness ie. red polycarbonate stair divider and night light. Costly elements such as kitchen joinery are limited by having bulk of storage and further functionality in an ancillary space, which also utilises the full ceiling height.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettSustainabilityThe building structure is entirely plantation timber frame construction and the interior is lined with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified plywood. The entire building envelope is insulated beyond minimum building code requirements and mineral wool insulation is augmented with a high performance rigid phenolic insulation board. All façade cladding is installed over a batten to form a fully ventilated external skin and ensures condensation and moisture is not trapped within the building envelope.Northeast orientation, minimal southern openings, protected western openings and double glazed windows contribute to a well performing building envelope in a heating climate. The limited building floor area -144m2 of thermally controlled habitable space – reduces use of building materials.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettPlywood lining to the entire interior provides a natural warm quality, negated the need of a drywall sub contractor, and ensured absolute control and use of all the material, reducing waste and cost. Photovoltaic cells, and evacuated tube hot water heating are installed together with efficient lighting fixtures. Hot water storage is located centrally.The patterned Northeast façade incorporates a sustainable plantation sourced compressed wood fibre cladding product.High levels of thermal control of the building envelope, good solar orientation, and utilisation of energy efficient technologies limit current and future running costs together with long term environmental impact.Save this picture!© Jonathan WherrettResponse to Client and User NeedsThe opportunities of the building section are maximized. Though relatively small in floor area, the high ceiling of the living area provides an air of generosity. Higher up in the volume, a studio area views across the living spaces while a large work bench forms a lower ceiling to the sunken lounge below, thereby providing a more intimate and sheltered area within the larger volume. The children’s area has capacity to be separated into 2 spaces needs change with age. They also have their own access to the garden.Project gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily Editors Select: Our Favorite Projects in the USAArchitecture News20 Scholarships the AA BILBAO Visiting School: COMPUTING TOPOS III 2014 / Bilbao, SpainEvent Share photographs:  Jonathan WherrettPhotographs:  Jonathan Wherrett Builder: Philip M Dingemanse, EF & CA Dingemanse Photographs Year:  2013 Structural Consultant: Projects 2013last_img read more

Twin storms bring hazardous travel conditions over holiday weekend

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Two different storms are set to create hazardous travel conditions for those heading home after the holiday weekend in the central and eastern parts of the country.The first worry is a storm expected to quickly race up the East Coast, bringing both ice and flooding threats.The second concern is a developing winter storm in the central U.S. for Sunday that could deliver near-blizzard conditions on a busy travel day.Storm No. 1This storm is bringing widespread precipitation Saturday morning from Minnesota to the Carolinas.The immediate concern is that some of the precipitation will be either freezing rain or an icy mix in the Appalachians, from western North Carolina through western Maryland.This precipitation is moving north and east, and the icy mix will spread into parts of Pennsylvania and southern New York later Saturday morning.Temperatures on Saturday morning are near freezing in places such as Boone, North Carolina; Roanoke, Virginia; and Hagerstown, Maryland.This can be a particularly dangerous situation because roads will appear wet, but actually be covered in ice.The threat for icy conditions will wind down late in the morning as the region warms up.Meanwhile, a coastal low will become stronger during the day on Saturday and rapidly spread heavy rain toward the Northeast.Heavy rainfall and possible flooding will spread toward the major Interstate 95 cities Saturday night and into early Sunday.Rainfall is expected to be between 1 and 2 inches in northern New Jersey, southern New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.By Sunday morning, the coastal low will bring heavy rain to parts of New England.As the storm intensifies, it’ll also bring the chance of some coastal flooding, especially along parts of Massachusetts.The storm should be gone by late Sunday morning.Storm No. 2A new storm will develop in the central Plains on Saturday night, taking snow to parts of Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa by Sunday morning.That storm should quickly race toward the north and east, hitting southern Wisconsin and most of Illinois and Michigan by Sunday afternoon.Snowfall totals will mostly be between 3 and 6 inches from northeast Kansas to Michigan.It appears the heavy snow and gusty winds will likely hit Chicago on Sunday afternoon during the very busy travel day.This could cause flight delays and cancellations, as well as dangerous driving conditions.The National Safety Council projects that 433 people may be killed and another 49,400 may be seriously injured in car crashes over the Thanksgiving holiday.In 2017, Thanksgiving was the second-deadliest holiday on the roads, trailing only the Fourth of July, the safety council said.By Monday morning, the storm should move toward the Northeast — where, because of warmer air, most cities will only see rain. But some snow is possible in upstate New York and northern New England.Strong winds are also likely, with gusts of 30 to 40 mph bringing near-whiteout conditions in some parts.It will be extremely hazardous to travel in parts of the region on Sunday, especially on affected parts of I-35, I-80 and I-57.But the storm is moving very fast, which should limit snowfall totals and improve conditions by Sunday night.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
