Fitness tips

first_imgMaintaining your strength and endurance throughout the season is vitally important. You’ll want your muscles to grow, and to continue to improve on your stamina, endurance and power. Accordingly products such as creatine may enable you to do that and potentially improve on your performance. However, you also need to think about your balance. In such an explosive sport this is vital.Lateral ankle sprains are common injuries amongst professional rugby union players. However, most occur in non contact situations and are down to a lack of balance on the part of the player. Incorporating a training programme which works on both balance and proprioception is one of the best ways to try and reduce this happening.Think about going to ground when carrying the ballThe circumstances where a ball carrier is tackled from the side or behind and tries to continue running can possibly lead to knee, leg or ankle injuries. If you go to ground when you feel the weight of a tackler, this could minimise the potential injury impact. You may not gain the valuable yards during the game, but you may avoid a long lay-off during the season. Try and work on this in training. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby Training Regime: Part 2We all know how physically demanding rugby can be. Getting your body conditioned for the start of the season can be a gruelling mix of muscle building in the gym, working on that explosive yard on the pitch, ball work and tackling. Once the season starts it may feel like the hard work is done, but in reality you’re just getting started. Your body might appear to be in perfect condition, but you have to keep it that way.Don’t forget the things you were doing before the first competitive ball was kicked. If you relied on products such as whey protein to get your body conditioned, don’t stop when the season starts. You’re not there yet. It’s a continuous process you need to keep working on to maintain that level of fitness.Take a look at our guide of rugby training tips to keep you fit and firing all season long.Proper tackling techniqueAs a sport that involves hard contact between bodies when tackling, it’s difficult to completely eliminate any form of injury. However, what you can do is work on your tackling technique and avoid dangerous tackles to try and minimise the potential risk of injury. Try and ensure you avoid hitting the ball carrier at shoulder level as this will reduce the chance of head-to-head contact. It’s important to keep your chin off your chest; your eyes open and be aware of the general play around you. Always work on this in training and it will really start to benefit you during matches.Consider balance and proprioception trainingcenter_img Fully recover from injuries prior to returning to playIn a sport that involves such contact and collisions it’s imperative to ensure that you are fully fit before taking the field. If you’re carrying an injury, however moderate you may view it you’ll be under an increased chance of suffering from another knock which could end up being much more serious. Getting proper rest and recuperation is vital after playing rugby and so when you’re injured this is even more important. Make sure you not only heal from your injury, that you also recover the full range of motion and strength and have completed full training prior to returning.last_img read more

Casa A + C is a single-family residence located on a large, flat plot with connection to two streets, close to the Porto Alegre – Metropolitan Region, in Dois Irmãos. Next to the residence, there was an extension, next to the swimming pool, to support the leisure activities of the family. Thus, the project arises through a need to expand the space and potentiate its use, but maintaining the connection with the amplitude of the place. In addition, the family realized the need to complement the home to welcome their friends and family members without worrying about the routine and the organization of the house.Save this picture!© Vanessa Bohn – Denise WichmannIn this way, the project in question, through its formal gesture, maintains the hierarchy of the house, since all activities are incorporated in a single volume with horizontal predominance. The emphasis of this solution is consolidated by the connection of the indoor and outdoor space, whose closures occur through large glass frames.Save this picture!© Vanessa Bohn – Denise WichmannSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Vanessa Bohn – Denise WichmannThe central idea of the project is that the program would be all protected by a single plan, including the swimming pool and the shelter for the cars. The solution of providing retractable glass cover to the pool is justified by the variability of the local climate and therefore can be used at different times of the year. In addition, we pursued to create a program inside the pool, previously plain, with space for relaxation, streak and seats so that the family would use it more often. The intervention also reached other areas such as the remodeling of external access, the new landscaping design and the revitalization of the sports court. In the materiality, the emphasis of the elements as the natural wood that appears in several points of the project, as well as the stone. The grand balcony is an invitation to contemplate the external environment and the large openings dissolve the boundaries between open and closed space.Save this picture!© Vanessa Bohn – Denise WichmannProject gallerySee allShow lessGunārs Birkerts, Architect of the World’s Largest Library, Dies Aged 92Architecture NewsStudio Gang’s American Museum of Natural History Expansion Set to Begin ConstructionArchitecture News Share “COPY” Projects Save this picture!© Vanessa Bohn – Denise Wichmann+ 40 Share CopyHouses•Primavera, Brazil “COPY” Year:  CopyAbout this officeStudio Colnaghi ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPrimaveraBrazilPublished on August 15, 2017Cite: “A+C House / Studio Colnaghi Arquitetura” [Casa A+C / Studio Colnaghi Arquitetura] 15 Aug 2017.

Currently, it consists of 5 houses. The plot is surrounded by a privileged natural environment with astonishing views of the valley and the mountain range of the Cadí natural park. The project is constrained by strict construction regulations that govern the region and that gear the project towards the use of ‘traditional Cerdanya’ exterior materials. The ‘ceretan’ home seeks integration with its context and amongst the surrounding existing constructions by means of using materials and basic elements of the local construction. Therefore, any construction should use locally sourced stone for the walls and artisanal clay tiles for the sloping roofs. It should incorporate as well the ‘era’ or garden, the porches and the access through the ‘ceretan’ gate.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Jordi AngueraThe challenge was set: to build a home that will marry harmoniously very traditional elements, with a contemporary and cozy atmosphere. As a start, we decided to build the home with a wooden structure, facing the project from a bioclimatic strategy, to achieve an efficient and sustainable construction. Thanks to this system we managed to reduce the construction waste materials. Hence the project included 3 different materials: the stone and the clay tiles as stated in the regulations and the timber as a structural material. This set us up to try and resolve all the design elements with these 3 materials. Later, we added iron to the material triad in order to resolve some joints and encounters and to design luminaires adding cohesiveness and singularity to the details of the interior.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraA steep slope of the 20% characterizes the site, running down from the street level. We intended to set out the whole house in one story and in level with the ‘era’ in order to enjoy it as much as possible. Therefore, we proposed to make only the garage and the access hall at street level and the rest of the house sits 2.6mts below that level. This decision entailed burying part of the house fitting it into the topography. The plot has a quasi-square shape oriented towards the south-east. This feature allows us to easily create an L-shaped plan with two perpendicular wings. Those rest on the plot’s boundaries and create the day area with the main rooms and the night area with the bedrooms. The stone wall slightly protrudes above the roofs and highlights the simple shapes guided by the plot’s shape. The wall draws a series of slopes and counter slopes providing the house with a singular geometry.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraThe roofs of both wings converge towards the ‘era’ creating continuous porch that surrounds the house and generates a wide lounge area in one of its ends. Connecting both the night and the day wings is a two-story volume, the only one whose slope is oriented towards the exterior, creating in such a way an access porch. The exterior elevation is continuous and made in stone in its totality except from two instances where the wall sets back: in the bedroom’s area and at the porch. When these gestures take place, the walls appear cladded in wood as to show the relevance of the wood as the main construction material that emerges once the stone is eliminated. The same happens in the access volume at street level, where the setback is cladded in wood in contrast to the stone volume.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraIn the traditional rural architecture of the region, the houses where enclosed towards the exterior in a gesture of protection, their occupants didn’t need to see the areas where they had been working all day. This project imitates those gestures closing itself towards the street and the immediate neighbor on the north face. Nevertheless, it aims, on the contrary, to open up to the ‘era’, the garden and the views. In this manner, any of the interior and exterior areas can enjoy the natural landscape that surrounds the house. The primitive as well as the traditional act of gathering around the fire, as a moment of family togetherness, was the central concept to the design. The wide, open space of the ‘day area’ goes on to generate smaller semi-enclosed corners through the use of the furniture, enfolding the spaces to create cozy atmospheres typical of the mountains. The couch that frames the fireplace, the bench, the table, the kitchen isle, set out the rhythm of the diverse spaces within a visually continuous space.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraDistribution: The access to the house on foot is at the street level, 2.6 meters above the residence. Once inside the access hall, we find a windbreaker, typical element from la Cerdanya. The large sliding door allows us by opening it to enlarge the access hall or to diminish the heat loss by closing it during the winter months. At the end of the hall towards the stairs to the main floor, a window frames the views of the valley. Going down the stairs another window frames the mountains of the Cadí natural park. The main floor, the lower ground, is in L shape and is formed by the quasi-square differentiated wings: the day wing completely open and facing south-east, and the night wing, more compartmentalized and oriented south-west. There is a 55cm difference in level between the two wings to adapt the project to the site’s slope. The corridor to access the bedrooms is a narrow and tall space where a large and long skylight is placed along its ceiling providing the otherwise residual space with lively natural light. The corridor wall is made of natural clays, that help us to control de interior humidity.Save this picture!Exterior AxonometricThree identical bedrooms are designed, planned for the three kids in the family. Nevertheless, currently, two of those rooms are unified to generate a bigger room. This is intended that now that they are still young and can sleep together, this design move will allow creating a great play area. The other room is used as a guest room and at the end of the wing, the master bedroom is placed. The restrooms are incorporated into the bedrooms, with the shower and WC enclosed and the rest open. Being them placed towards the exterior walls, the enclosed spaces have natural lighting and ventilation. Moreover, nice views of the mountains can be seen from the shower. In the master bedroom, the same logic was followed, incorporating a bathtub and a lower window beside it to enjoy the views while taking a bath.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraThe timber structure and the isolation of the volume pushed the design to rethink the hermetic enclosure, transpiration and air renovation. We accomplished that by a double flow heat recovery system. This system allows the house to ‘breathe’ and guarantees the continuous interior air salubrity. The wood is the main character throughout the house interiors. Fir planks clad walls and ceilings and natural oak floating parquet covers the floors, all with the same tones. The window and door frames are in pine wood with a mat finish and the interior cupboards, closets, doors, and the outside blinds are painted with an ecological and ‘breathable’ paint.Save this picture!© Jordi AngueraThe walls’ and roofs’ structure is in pinewood. Therefore, by means of one material treated in different ways, we resolve most of the interior elements and finishes. The exterior wood is treated larch. The rest of the materials are the above-mentioned stone and clay tiles, as well as iron as a polyvalent material. Iron is used in the exteriors as the window frame and as roof gutter and in the interiors for some details such as lighting fixtures, the fireplace, stairs, and other finishes. Reinforced concrete is only used for the retaining walls and foundations.Project gallerySee allShow lessCT 37 / BOOST studioSelected ProjectsFour Seasons Hotel Kuwait / GenslerSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Inspired by architecture with veneration for the past, the added structures at Gibbon Street were imagined as a series of relic-like garden walls repurposed to accommodate a practical living environment. The philosophy implicit in this concept is the suspension of time, a wild experience, distinguished from the regularity of the modern built environment.Save this picture!© David ChatfieldBeginning at the front, the garden walls meander under the existing cottage and finish at the rear of the site. Flanking internal and external areas, the walls dictate the experience of the observer – encouraging a slower pace, directing their focus to the landscape. The added structures were conceived with a civic contribution in mind, particular attention was paid to the character of the streetscape and preservation of the landscape.Save this picture!Sectional PerspectiveRather than opt for the schematic, open-plan design of the contemporary renovated Queensland workers cottage – with its ambiguous arrangement of living spaces – the formalized living, sitting and dining areas are compartmentalized, each room dedicated to their function. The notion of a genuinely external experience runs counter to the traditional plan of a Queensland worker cottage, where the living areas often sit alongside an external deck, causing an unnecessary friction: the two spaces create a singular experience. The plan here was to subvert that contradiction and design rooms with specific and distinctive experiences. The same concept applies to the external areas and landscape, although enjoyed less frequently, they provide a genuinely external living experience.Save this picture!© David ChatfieldBrisbane is increasingly impacted by major weather events and flooding is amplified by the use of hard, impervious surfaces and building materials. This is evident on adjoining lots at Gibbon St where entire landscapes have been lost to impermeable surfaces. The house actively prioritizes permeability and the catchment of rainwater. Mindful of its impact on the character of the street, the renovation preserves features typical to the pre-war workers’ cottage.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesSave this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesParticular care was taken in the way the garage door was integrated so as to not overburden the streetscape; a timber screen provides visual relief, friendlier than the opaque garage door of modern renovations, it mediates more delicately between public and private space. Gibbon St. is located in New Farm, Brisbane’s “little Italy” – the rendered concrete structure is a nod to the building precedents set by Italian migrant settlers. It is an attempt to legitimize the conflict between the timber and tin workers cottage and the ‘Mediterranianised’ migrant housing that was a crucial part of the post-war settlement.

In 2016, the public donated 17,000 gifts to the appeal with over £20,000 donated on JustGiving, and this year the Met is hoping to beat that total. It is asking the public to buy a present for a child aged from one week to 17-years-old and drop it off at their local Metropolitan Police Station. Gifts should be left unwrapped for security reasons, and go to children in care, disadvantaged families, refuges or hospitals all over London.The deadline for donations is Tuesday 12 December, and monetary donations are also welcomed with the Metropolitan Police again raising funds on JustGiving that will also be used to buy Christmas gifts. So far, it has raised £13,411 from 422 supporters. To help advertise the appeal, the Met asked children at primary schools across London to design a poster with the winning entry also displayed on the Met’s site and on its JustGiving page.last_img read more

We therefore call on Interior Minister, Yuri Lutsenko, to do his utmost to guarantee the safety of all journalists and particularly those working in the provinces, where harassment of local media persists, despite the high hopes raised by political change,” it added.”This is the second time that I have received a death threat”, Kucherak told Reporters Without Borders. “The first time I was attacked was in autumn 2002 and it was particularly vicious. It took me a year to recover from it. I have continued to expose nepotism and the mayor’s embezzlement of council funds for private use and Grigory Sokur’s links with organised crime.” He added that his latest article headlined, ‘The town no longer has a mayor’ that appeared on 29 April and which referred to dishonesty on the part of the electoral commission, had probably been “the trigger for this new attack”.Reporters Without Borders tried unsuccessfully to contact Sokur by telephone to obtain his reaction.Oberih is one of two privately-owned newspapers in the town, which also has two municipal publications. Kucherak said the weekly had been through three restructurings in two years, because of threats and harassment which have also targeted its journalists. Some of them have chosen to resign from the paper for fear of reprisals. February 26, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Council suspends investigative magazine for one month

first_img Burkina FasoAfrica Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder Receive email alerts News February 23, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 Council suspends investigative magazine for one month News Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso RSF_en French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is worried about the investigative bimonthly L’Evènement’s sudden suspension by Burkina Faso’s High Council for Communication (CSC). The magazine has been suspended for a month from 19 February for allegedly revealing “military secrets.”The sanction was imposed because an article in the magazine’s 10 February issue about an attack on a munitions depot in Yimdi by former members of the presidential guard was accompanied a map of the various munitions depots used by the army in the past and now no longer in use.When military prosecutors questioned L’Evènement director Germain Nama Bitiou and editor Newton Hamed Barry on 18 February, they appeared to be satisfied by Bitiou’s explanation that the article had simply aimed to show how the military managed its infrastructure, and that the former depots had no strategic value.The two journalists were very surprised when the CSC announced the paper’s suspension the next day without contacting them and without giving them any chance to present their arguments to the CSC’s members.“We condemn this measure, the way it was taken and the reasons given,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa Desk. “Known for incisive investigative reporting, L’Evènement is one the leading publications in a country whose media have distinguished themselves by the courage and seriousness of their reporting during the difficult events of the past two years. It would be a pity if the new government yielded to the temptation to censor so soon after the restoration of democracy.”Accusing the CSC of “ill will,” Bitiou said: “There is a dangerous shift in the CSC, which has gone from being a media regulator to ‘media judge.’ In its allegations, the CSC confuses many things or tries to use them clumsily to justify its decision.” Defending his magazine’s record and the criticized articles, he said: “I can understand that some people (…) may have been annoyed by this information but it is not wrong (…) What do people expect of journalists unless it is making sure their facts are right!”On 15 October 2015, a month after an abortive coup attempt, the CSC cited the national situation as grounds for calling on the media to “refrain from publishing or broadcasting strategic military or defence information or any other information that could endanger state security or compromise the actions of the defence and security forces in the field.”Bitiou added: “If what we very roughly put on a map (…) constitutes secrets then we need to be really worried about the failure to protect our secrets!”Two cases of armed unrest (in November 2014 and September 2015) were contained in Burkina Faso and were followed by a transition to democracy and elections recognised as legitimate. The country is ranked 46th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index. to go furthercenter_img June 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information News May 5, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Burkina Faso News Burkina FasoAfrica Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
