South Africa 36 England 27: The Verdict

first_imgJOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – JUNE 16: England captain, Chris Robshaw (L) looks dejected during the second test match between South Africa and England at Ellis Park on June 16, 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Power play: Bismarck du Plessis put in a herculean shift for the Springboks in attack and defenceBy Owain Jones, Rugby World EditorIn  a nutshellENGLAND WERE blown away by South Africa in a typically ferocious encounter at altitude in Ellis Park, Johannesburg. The Springboks tore into England from the off, with their huge ball carriers, Willem Alberts, Bismarck du Plessis and Pierre Spies repeatedly driving English defenders backwards. It was Alberts who scored first, sauntering over the line from a short distance. Du Plessis was next to crash over minutes later after more concerted pressure with impressive debutant Jonathan Joseph unlucky not to dislodge the ball after some fine defensive cover work. With the Springboks rampant, Francois Hougaard darted over from short range to leave the score 22-3 after the first quarter. Despite a Leicester-inspired try started off by the impressive Ben Youngs and finished by Toby Flood minutes later, England were still 15 points adrift as the half-time whistle went, trailing 25-10. In the second-half England rallied bravely, with two tries from Ben Youngs in the third quarter to reduce the score to seven points. With a further penalty by Flood, the deficit was cut to four points and England sniffed an unlikely victory. Sadly JP Pietersen had other ideas, quelling the uprising by scoring in the corner after an initial blistering break to leave South Africa winning battle, and the war.No way through: Debutant Jonathan Joseph looks for a gapKey MomentAfter only three minutes, the Boks were awarded a scrum deep in England’s half. Francois Hougaard fed the ball in but it fizzed out the other side of the channel, crucially without being touched by the English front-row. Willem Alberts was quickest to pounce, and scored with consummate ease. Under IRB Law 20.7 the scrum should have been reset but referee Alain Rolland and assistant Steve Walsh missed it giving South Africa vital early points on the board.Man of the Match: Bismarck du PlessisDu Plessis put in a herculean shift for the Springbosk. The muscle-bound hooker, for so long understudy to John Smit, repeatedly drove the Boks deep into England territory swatting England defenders away, notably Geoff Parling, with worrying ease. It was a performance that consolidated his position as the world’s No 1 hooker and it was no coincidence the Springboks lost shape and momentum when he left the fray with 20 minutes left on the clock.Room for improvementMuch like Wales last weekend against Australia, England were guilty of being far to sluggish in the opening quarter. They trailed 22-3 after just 18 minutes giving themselves far too much to do. They simply weren’t able to live with the aggressive ball carrying from the Springbok strike runners, falling off tackles too easily and allowing the offload as they were pummelled in the early opening exchanges. It was only in the second-half, with a raft of replacements from both sides, that England were able to gain a foothold and start the fightback.Shell shocked: Captain Chris Robshaw looks for answersIn quotes – WinnersSpringbok coach Heyneke Meyer: “We lost our way a bit in the second half because our first-phase play wasn’t good enough and we made mistakes that allowed England back into the game, but we played really great rugby in the first half. In that period we showed glimpses of what we are capable of and where we want to go as a team.”In quotes – LosersEngland coach Stuart Lancaster: “We were disappointed with the start, to give them 12 points before we got going, We know we’ve got to be better in all the little details that make the difference in winning at international level. Before half-time was the time we needed to get a foothold in the game.”center_img Match in statsEngland made 90 tackles, missing 18, a conversion rate of 83.3% compared to the Springboks who made 61 tackles and missed six, with a conversion rate of 91%Geoff Parling was England’s top tackler with 12 followed closely by Tom Johnson with 11.

Brougham Place is a bold courtyard building in the inner-Sydney suburb of Potts Point. The brief called for a home, office and studio; and the owners brought with them a love of their dense, inner-urban neighbourhood and a passion for Le Corbusier’s houses. They sought a place to live and work that would reflect both the rough grain of the streetscape and their modernist inspiration.Save this picture!© Ross HoneysettThe result is a design consisting of two separate dwellings, a secluded central courtyard and green roof. The two volumes are conceived as off-form concrete boxes sitting atop a sandstone plinth. This sandstone was salvaged from the original building and rough-cut by stonemasons to create a beautifully textured element that wraps around the front facade and side lane of the site. It is a wonderfully tactile surface that enlivens the street and reflects the traditional stone footings of the local terraces and the grand cut-rock faces that line Brougham Street. Above the plinth, the concrete boxes feature large openings infilled with an array of multi-coloured louvre blades. These operable and retractable louvres attenuate visual privacy and light, while the long east-west orientation of the dwelling maximises solar access and the extraordinary view of the city and harbour.Save this picture!SectionThe front building contains the owners’ home and office, while the rear houses a garage with studio apartment above. The planning is based on simple Miesian-inspired volumes: rooms are created by floating platforms, sliding and pivoting planes and joinery pods. On each floor one can move freely around the spaces on all sides, while vertical circulation slips by along the perimeter.Save this picture!© Ross HoneysettThe internal spaces feature a palette of travertine stone floors, off-form concrete walls and ceilings and timber stairs. White joinery is detailed to reveal subtle accents in colours matching those of the external louvres; while timber elements marry with the client’s beautiful antique furniture collection. Carefully detailed joinery pieces are designed as integral to the life and operation of the house: reading lamps, book and touchscreen shelves and a self-opening television compartment unfold from the master bed suite; while a coffee table opens up to reveal a hidden television with speakers, smart devices and storage all concealed inside a deceptively simple form.Save this picture!© Ross HoneysettThe central courtyard extends the internal composition outside, with planes of timber and concrete hovering over a reflective black granite sitting pool. It is a place of calm and introspection nestled between the two dwellings. In contrast, the green roof atop the front dwelling celebrates the exposure of the corner site, akin to a lookout on a rocky cliff.Save this picture!© Ross HoneysettThe clients brought their passion for design to the construction process, taking on the work as owner-builders. Their whole-hearted support for the integrity of the detailing is evident in the finished project which has completely transformed the site to provide contemporary inner-urban living while maintaining a distinct link to the history of the area.Save this picture!© Ross HoneysettProduct Description. The sandstone used to clad the plinth and boundary walls was salvaged from the original building and rough-cut by stonemasons to create a beautifully textured element that wraps around the front facade and side lane of the site.

Argentina’s rightist regime attacks public workers

first_imgArgentina’s rightist government, led by newly elected President Mauricio Macri of the Cambiemos political coalition, has terminated the employment of 10,000 federal and state employees in the first seven days of 2016. Macri won the second round of a close election against Daniel Scioli of the center-left faction of the Frente para la Victoria (an electoral front) and the Justicialista Party  (a continuation of the Peronist Party) in November.Senate workers protest imminent layoffs in Buenos Aires.From May 2003 until last November, former President Nestor Kirchner, who died in 2007, and his widow, President Cristina Fernandez, had set the tone for Argentine politics. While not challenging the capitalist system, they implemented a moderate social democratic program that provided some benefits for the poor and the working class — compared with the neoliberalism of the 1990s — and maintained some independence of Argentina from U.S. imperialist domination.  Cambiemos is a coalition of market oriented Argentine business elites that openly promises neoliberalism and closer adherence to U.S. interests. In brief, neoliberalism means using government to shift wealth from the poor and workers to the capitalists and foreign investors. The shift in Argentina is part of a wave of U.S. instigated attacks on progressive and pro-socialist governments in Latin America, especially Venezuela and Bolivia but including Brazil and Argentina.Immediately after Macri entered office on Dec. 10, he and the newly appointed cabinet of ministers created a new ministerial office termed the “Ministry of Modernization.” This ministry was to “review” the jobs of 24,000 public sector workers. Then, on Jan. 6, some 10,000 of these employees were laid off.One of the first acts of a neoliberalist regime in any country is to implement a “downsizing” of the public sector. This includes cutting any social welfare and/or safety net program that is typical of the capitalist welfare state, but which they find no longer sustainable. This recipe is the modus operandi for capitalism at a dead end. It demands austerity for the workers and a government that follows the dictates of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and other imperialist mechanisms.The Macri campaign’s promises to his capitalist and imperialist promoters are reflected in the words of his vice president, Gabriela Michetti, who called the fired workers “political activists” appointed by the former government and promised to get rid of them. (Telesur, Jan. 6)It is common in any capitalist government where different parties replace each other to purge the public appointees as well as elected officials of the defeated opposition party. The actions of the Macri regime, however, target  masses of public worker jobs for the chopping block, and not so much the administrators. Michetti derogatorily referred to these workers as being “ñoquis” (a pasta dish), that in colloquial terminology is used to describe “unproductive public service workers.”Public worker unions fight backBoth the Union of Civil Employees of the Nation (UPCN) and the Association of State Workers (ATE), representing tens of thousands of public workers, took to the streets to protest the cuts as an injustice. TeleSUR reported that  ATE leader Hugo Godoy labeled the cutbacks “a grave situation” and stated, “The union is preparing to take further steps to secure labor stability for the country’s 3 million public sector workers,” including 600,000 who are marginally employed.Godoy added, “We are in a state of alert and mobilization and are taking measures everywhere there are layoffs.”On Jan. 8, ATE declared a national strike against the government and its plan to destroy public jobs and devalue the currency amid future plans to open up the country to more foreign transnational companies. These actions are consistent with Cambiemos’ pliant and conciliatory prostration before monopoly capitalism and imperialism.In Argentina’s La Plata municipality, police attacked strikers with tear gas and rubber bullets that left several wounded. According to the Jan. 9 newspaper La Nación, “The workers were protesting a decision by local mayor Julio Garro that cancelled the 4,500 contracts on Dec. 31.”Both ATE and UPCN have petitioned for an injunction to suspend Michetti’s actions. What is clear is that the tension within the context of class conflict is growing and is already moving past the setback at the ballot box to a struggle in the streets and workplaces.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

GMOs Are Not New

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleIndiana Planting Almost Complete Before the Rain Gary Truitt Home News Feed GMOs Are Not New GMOs Are Not New By Gary Truitt – Jun 1, 2015 Facebook Twitter So you think GMO technology is new? Think again.  Genetic modification has been taking place for centuries. It is only when we moved it into the lab that the controversy beganSMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE: NEW REPORT SHOWS FIRST GMO IS 8,000 YEARS OLDMay 27, 2015Smithsonian Magazine reports:With the recent approval of GMO apples and potatoes by the FDA, it’s tempting to think of genetically-modified organisms as both modern and scientific. But it turns out that the first GMO was produced by another kind of scientist…nature. In fact, reports NPR’s Michaeleen Doucleff, soil bacteria created the first genetically modified crop 8,000 years ago.Doucleff writes that scientist from Peru’s International Potato Center, a genebank and research institution devoted to all things potato, looked at the genes of 291 sweet potato varieties grown worldwide. They found evidence of the same set of bacterial genes in each one of them – a finding they call “rather remarkable” in the paper they published about the research.It seems like soil bacteria is behind the find. The team’s research suggests that the bacteria infected ancient plants, inserting its DNA into wild sweet potatoes that were then planted (and replanted) by ancient peoples who found them to be edible. Over time, they say, the infected potato became domesticated and widely disseminated. In fact, notes Doucleff, sweet potatoes have been declared the world’s seventh most important crop by the United Nations. And all of those, all cultivated sweet potatoes, contain the DNA.“Given that this crop has been eaten for millennia,” says the research team, “it may change the paradigm governing the ‘unnatural’ status of transgenic crops.” The study’s lead author, virologist Jan Kreuze, tells Doucleff that his work shows that “people have been eating a GMO for thousands of years without knowing it.”So will the fact that GMOs can occur naturally help to quell the argument about their safety? Not exactly. GMO expert Greg Jaffe tells Doucleff that the finding isn’t “all that surprising” given how easy it is to insert DNA into crops. He predicts that given worries about GMOs’ effects on pesticides and intellectual property, the new findings won’t do much to change the debate…or convince consumers that GMOs are safe. And another recent finding (this one in court) might prove him right. Last month, a Vermont judge cleared the way for that state’s GMO labeling law to move forward, a move that many predict will bolster GMO labeling laws (and debates) in other states.
