The new European Rugby Champions Cup explained

first_imgMonday Apr 21, 2014 The new European Rugby Champions Cup explained The future of European rugby is now clear after months of speculation ended recently with an agreement between the relevant parties, resulting in the new European Rugby Champions Cup. Here is a breakdown of how things will work from next season. For some time now the English and French clubs had expressed their unhappiness with the format of the Heineken Cup, culminating in talks of them intending to dispand and set up their own tournament in September of last year. After months of talks, we’re at the point where everyone is on the same page, and the European Rugby Champions Cup and the European Rugby Challenge Cup (second tier) were signed on.The two major players in the TV rights, BT Sport and Sky Sports have agreed to share coverage.The tournament, run by the newly formed European Professional Club Rugby, will feature 20 teams.European Rugby Champions Cup qualification:20 clubs qualifying through the finishing positions in their leagues from the preceding season:– top 6 from TOP 14– top 6 from Premiership Rugby– top 7 from PRO 12, with at least one club from each country participating in the league– the 20th place will be taken by the winner of a play off (first season different to following)The format and finer points of the tournament/s are a bit more complicated, but that’s the basic premise and this new video from BT Sport explains things quite clearly. As we get nearer the time, we will go through other facets of it, but for now it looks like it’s a positive step in the right direction.What do you think of the new qualification setup?

In our design project, to recover a space or a building always means to find in the preexisting structure the prompts for a new beginning. It is not an easy task. You need to look beyond appearances. You need to inspect and remove layers. Sometimes, you need to do that physically. This was the case for the restoration of the Verona Penthouse in the old town center of Verona.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZWe first demolished all of the plasters. We were looking for something true, something strong. We were looking at the past of the artifact to find some remnants for the future, and there we found them. By removing the plasters, a beautiful rough masonry resurfaced. Just by looking at the stonework, we could tell it was not meant to be left in plain view. It was imperfect, inexact but, for this very reason, authentic, carved by the humble and elegant expressivity of the poor things when they are true (and not the unfortunate result of misaligned narrative expedients). Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZIn the freed space, the brutal force of the stonework pushed us to radicalize the architectonic translation of the functional program. We did not build new walls within the space structured by the masonry. Rather, we compartimentalized the functional program inside new grafts-like devices. Thus, the original walls entered into an intense dialog with the new elements, which were crafted using highly authentic materials capable of engaging with the poetic roughness of the stone.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZA pitch-pine boiserie(minium-colored and burnt) crosses the spaces from the lowered entrance down the living and slides along to constitute a side of the bedroom. Inside it, we find the guest toilet, the laundry room, and the bedroom wardrobes. The surface is uninterrupted and the otherwise indiscernible openings are marked only by some read-lead handles of our own design.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZThe host bedroom toilet is inscribed within a black, uncolored, sheet metal volume treated with shoe polish. The volume presents different ploys: towards the bed, a big opening is ambiguously divided by a mirror and a polarized glass, which can hamper or offer a voyeuristic view of the bathroom. Towards the bedroom, a piston-driven remote control allows a hide-away TV set to come on stage. Finally, the door is concealed by a mirror that renders the movement between the volume and the boiserie all the more enigmatic. The entrance wall of the living is marked by the iconic presence of two slightly overlapping circles. They were made using different metals (brass and aged iron). This device too aims to conceal the invasiveness of the TV. Upon manual operation, in fact, a sliding mechanism brings the TV screen into view. Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZSave this picture!DrawingsSave this picture!DrawingsOther elements are characterized by a similar tendency to narratively break away with ordinary approaches and reinterpretations in architectural design: an iron gate structures the living back wall and contains a metal kitchen with burnished brass finishing touches. The false ceilings of the lowered parts are in black natural iron plates. Custom furnishings (tables, sinks, beds) are developed using industrial metallic profiles with visible joins.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse for a Writer / Iniesta Nowell ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCasa Rosario / DOSA STUDIO + Rojkind ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Verona, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Illegal sub-letting at ‘epidemic’ levels claims TV evictions star

first_imgHome » Crime » Illegal sub-letting at ‘epidemic’ levels claims TV evictions star previous nextRegulation & LawIllegal sub-letting at ‘epidemic’ levels claims TV evictions starLandlord Action’s Paul Shamplina claims ‘professional’ sub-letting scammers are becoming a significant problem particularly in London.Nigel Lewis14th June 201901,312 Views The TV property evictions show Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlords is set to continue next week and will uncover the extraordinary tale of an Instagram star who turned out to be a ‘professional’ rental scam artist.The programme also highlights how sub-letting scams are becoming a major problem in London, fuelled by a rise in the number of well-informed criminals who play the system for significant financial gain.Featuring Landlord Action’s Paul Shamplina, the Channel 5 TV show on Monday follows landlord Han Yip as he discovers that his swish West London property has been sub-let illegally by a tenant to three unsuspecting foreign students.The original tenant turns out to be an Instagram star who flaunts his suspiciously luxury lifestyle despite not having a job, and who brags about a ‘business empire’ on the social media platform. The programme subsequently finds out that the individual involved had done time in a US prison on fraud charges.“Han Yip was very unlucky,” says Shamplina (left). “He had done everything correctly, from using a professional letting agent to carrying out thorough referencing.“Unfortunately, this particular fraudster had changed the spelling of his name among other tricks to slip through referencing.“Illegal sub-letting is becoming something of an epidemic in London and more needs to be done to prevent cases like these.”London is not the only city blighted by sub-letting. As we reported earlier this month, a sub-letting scandal was recently uncovered in Bristol.Nightmare Tenants Slum Landlords is set to air on Monday 17th June at 9pm. Nightmare Tenants Paul Shamplina Channel 5 June 14, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Boyle, McGuire win student body government election

first_imgAnna Mason | The Observer President elect junior Elizabeth Boyle embraces a supporter following news of her victory. She ran alongside sophomore Patrick McGuire.Junior Elizabeth Boyle and sophomore Patrick McGuire were elected student body president and vice president after winning 53.27 percent of the student body’s vote Thursday.Boyle and McGuire defeated juniors Mario Markho and Charlie Ortega Guifarro, juniors Eduardo Luna and Haley Coleman and freshmen Carlston Chang and Kevin O’Leary.The Markho-Ortega ticket drew in 30.09 percent of the vote, followed by Chang-O’Leary with 10.04 percent and Luna-Coleman with 6.60 percent.Total voter turnout was 40 percent.Shady Girgis, president of the judicial council, said he expected the election to result in a run-off.“We had four tickets, so I think one ticket getting more than 50 percent was kind of a shock to all of us,” he said. “So that was kind of cool, I think the Boyle and McGuire ticket were really good candidates for it and I think they’ll do a good job.”Boyle said she felt “really, really lucky and grateful” for those on her campaign and others who supported the ticket.The pair’s first concern is putting together a team to work in their administration, McGuire said.“One thing we’ll do, first and foremost, is looking into assembling a team and really reaching out to a lot of people, seeing the best things we can do on that end,” he said. “ … Just really hitting the ground running with the things we want to do.”“We’re pumped to reach out to all areas of campus and get new people involved in student government and hear new voices and really make this year amazing,” Boyle echoed.The pair said they hope to integrate the other candidates’ ideas into their own.“One of the first things we said in there was that we really wanted to work with the other tickets and their great ideas and, you know, the ways they want to impact the student body,” McGuire said.McGuire said he thanks each of the candidates for a smooth election process.“[We’re] so grateful for all the tickets and the team and also that it was just such a clean and respectful campaign on all fronts,” he said.“There is so much happiness and joy and passion here tonight and that’s what the entire next year is going to be [like] … so, I’m excited for that,” Boyle said.Ortega said he’s thankful for his running mates, Markho and Rojas, for their work throughout the election season.“I would like to say that I am very proud of my team,” he said. “Mario [Markho] and Tiffany [Rojas] did a hell of a job, and so did the rest of our team. I personally am not crying because I know there’s absolutely no shame in giving it your all. We gave 110 percent. I am very proud of that.”O’Leary said the Chang-O’Leary ticket surpassed its goal of 10 percent.“I’m ecstatic,” Chang said.Both Luna and Coleman declined to a request to comment.Tags: 2019 Student Government Election, Boyle-McGuire, Judicial Councillast_img read more

Gov. Carroll for their dedication and engagement in Caribbean Heritage Day in Tallahassee.
