first_imgFriday Mar 15, 2019 Michael Hooper shows why you should always chase a penalty kick The Waratahs opened the scoring against the Brumbies on Friday in unusual fashion, as Michael Hooper fortuitously took advantage of a poor penalty kick from Bernard Foley.ADVERTISEMENTThe Waratahs lost 19-13 in the end to the Brumbies, and perhaps Foley did not have his greatest game with the boot, however, this try almost appeared to be a set move.This was a fairly basic kick for a player of Foley’s standard, but Hooper, like any good openside, was quick to the scene when it hit the post, and snapped up the ball after the Brumbies erroneously let it [email protected] new set piece? #BRUvWAR #SuperRugbyREAD:— RUGBYcomau (@rugbycomau) March 15, 2019WATCH: Waratahs back Ryan Cross shows why you should always chase a penalty kick (2011)With the tactic of drilling the ball into the base of the posts becoming increasingly common in open play in rugby league, union may be taking a leaf out of that book.However, if anyone did think it was planned, the fact that Foley missed the subsequent conversion suggests otherwise.ADVERTISEMENTWatch full match highlights belowHow will you watch the next Rugby World Cup?  Enter for a chance to win £100 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

UPHouse is the tail of an implant, the introduction of a space of intimate scale into another space, which, within a domestic diagram, is exposed and social. The project adds 50% more area to the apartment by installing a light steel structure and a staircase that allows access to the new upper floor. To support this floor, six frames that would stabilize and distribute the weight, are located parallel to the walls and surrounding the central and only closed room of the house, the restroom.Save this picture!© Javier de Paz GarcíaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Javier de Paz GarcíaThe new level is built on top of this central room of the apartment, leaving two double-height spaces in each side of it. One bigger and public in the east side and a smaller and more private one in the west side. The new upper floor divides the apartment into two spaces, a private and a public function. The choice of materials for these two spaces reflects this duality. On one hand, in the private vaulted area the walls and doors are covered with recycled plywood (from old electronic equipment containers). On the other hand, white walls reflect light from the patio to fill the kitchen, living room and recreational space with light. The use of materials is minimized, avoiding unnecessary finishes.Save this picture!© Javier de Paz GarcíaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Javier de Paz GarcíaThe public area of the apartment, which includes the kitchen, has an open floor plan. This flexible space opens to a small east-oriented patio that gets morning light. As many ground-level apartments, the lack of light is one of the keystones of the proposal. In order to maximise natural light in the new upper level, a mirror-faced wood vault is built in the private side. Natural light is reflected and multiplied with a great visual effect.Save this picture!© Javier de Paz GarcíaProject gallerySee allShow lessCottage on the Point / Paul Bernier ArchitecteSelected ProjectsThe Zam!

Donations to charity on plastic cards up by 18% in 2008 Howard Lake | 10 August 2009 | News Tagged with: Affinity Giving/Philanthropy recession Research / statistics The UK Cards Association reports that the UK public gave £1.19 billion to charities on plastic cards during 2008, an increase of 18% on the £1.01 billion given in 2007.The number of donations on debit cards increased by 16% (up from 13 million in 2007 to 15.1 million last year); and the number of credit card transactions rose 9% from 9.6 million in 2007 to 10.5 million last year.Last year the total amount donated on credit and charge cards was £639.2 million and £546.9 million on debit cards.

first_imgBy Mumia Abu-JamalThis slightly edited version is taken from a Dec. 8 audio commentary on was an early morning in December 1969 when a joint FBI/Chicago police crew raided an apartment building, ostensibly for weapons charges.In fact, they came to kill Fred Hampton, chairman of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party, and the man chosen by the party’s central committee to become the new chief of staff of the national organization. Hampton, barely 21, would be shot to death in his bed. In his sleep. Also killed was Mark Clark, a captain from Peoria, Illinois, who was security for the apartment.The killing of Fred made him a martyr for Blacks in Chicago and for Panthers across the nation. This year marks 50 years since his assassination.How many cops were sent to death row in Illinois for this most premeditated of murders in Chicago? I think you know the answer — zero.Fred’s wife, Akua Njeri, worked for Black Freedom movements for years. His son, sleeping in her belly while his father was assassinated by the State, became an outspoken freedom fighter for the Black Nation.And Fred Hampton, though gone, is not forgotten. He remains a martyred symbol of resistance.From Imprisoned Nation,This is Mumia Abu-JamalFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgFinsbury Food Group said it is on the “right side of the line” in a competitive market as it announced a rise in sales and profits this week.Sales were up 12% to £32.8 million and pre-tax profit was up 70% to £1.2m over the six months to December 31, including three new Scottish businesses acquired in November 2005. Underlying sales were up 9% and profits up 36% to £0.9m.Finsbury’s business model and positioning in the premium end of the market allows it to capitalise on market trends, chief executive Dave Brooks told British Baker. He said he saw “fantastic” opportunities for growth in the business, which includes Memory Lane Cakes, bakery Nicholas & Harris and new acquisitions United Central Bakeries, California Cakes and Campbells Cakes. Organic, gluten free and low fat are growing areas of demand Finsbury is well placed to serve, he said.At Memory Lane commissioning of a small cake production line will complete by April. This will be able to make £10m worth of miniature versions of premium boxed cakes a year. A sponge production line is also being automated. Organic bakery Nicholas & Harris is seeing “huge growth” and is on track for a record Easter. It now has listings at the four main multiples and an exclusive contract to supply Waitrose hot cross buns. Plans to install an oven at the Campbells’ no-bake bakery, which makes cold lines such as shortbread have been shelved. Instead, product baked at the nearby low fat specialist California bakery will be finished in Campbells. Following the recent acquisitions, buying functions on core commodities including eggs, flour and power have been centralised across the five businesses to reap cost savings. Mr Brooks said after a spending spree last year and a “big couple of years in terms of capital investment”, Finsbury has no plans for acquisitions. It will focus on organic growth.last_img read more

first_imgLet’s go on a fantastic journey today, a trip into one of the endless parallel worlds described by quantum mechanics (you’re familiar with the paradox of Schrödinger’s cat, which is simultaneously alive and dead). Many things in this world remain the same, yet many others are quite different. It could be that the sidewalks are pink and we keep squirrels as pets.Now imagine that banks in this parallel world are the role models of customer communication. They prepare a dashboard for you. It delivers more than just information on your bank transactions. It can also display your prospects of success in investment scenarios and affordable peer-to-peer loans. If you want, you can even set up the dashboard to warn you before you make spontaneous, unnecessary purchases (like an 8K television or a handbag and matching shoes, for example).In this parallel world, your bank provides you with recommendations such as changing your Internet provider to a more affordable competitor that offers better services for less each month. It can suggest subscribing to Netflix, for example, because you enjoy going to the movies and your bank account balance allows for it. Or it recommends adding the Hi-fi service by Spotify because you just purchased a high-quality stereo system. The bank will immediately provide an explanation of any fees or service charges that you question.And your insurance company won’t seem stiff and formal in this parallel world. An intelligent chatbot will contact you immediately in the event of an incident and arrange for a quick payment once the details have been clear up. Gone are the days that you have to spend months chasing down your insurance payout. Your insurance company can automatically apply the brakes of the car if you’re behind the wheel and your smartwatch registers heart palpations and other disquieting values, because your insurance company fears you might pass out. It just prevented serious damage that could have cost a lot of money, and worse yet, loss to human life. It can alert the police as someone attempts to break in to your home. And if the humidity or temperature in your home rises, it can inform a repair company to check in on your home.Banks and insurance companies are your friends and helpers in this parallel world. And everyone benefits from this relationship. You receive better services, enjoy excellent communication, and benefit from affordable rates, and the service providers cut costs, improve customer loyalty, and expand their offering.This scenario seems quite fanciful from today’s perspective, yet the technology we have available today would enable all of these innovations. There is nothing standing in the way of banks and insurance companies becoming better service providers. We already have technologies such as artifical intelligence (AI), big data, Internet of Things (IoT), virtual reality, augmented reality, blockchain, robotics, machine learning, and many, many others and we can implement them at any time. Just as an aside, Dell uses all of these technologies and offers numerous products and solutions based on them.Of course, we don’t need to implement everything just because we can. Providers should take careful steps to consider which data they need to use based on their business ethics. Protection of personal data has absolute priority and it is the measure of all things. Nevertheless, many banks and insurance companies are already using innovation solutions provided by Dell EMC in order to cut costs, streamline processes, automate evaluations, improve sales of products, get to know customers better, or simply become more agile, just like Crédit Agricole, the Bank of Ireland UK, and China Citic Bank are doing.Granted, transformation is not always that easy, and some companies experience fatigue along the way. It’s not only the IT that needs to implement the changes; the security, the organization, and even the culture of the institution need to change. What’s more, there are many people involved, like the CEO, CIO, the various departments, the IT team, and many internal users and external customers and partners. And there are other factors to consider, like transparency, scalability, maintenance aspects, customer orientation, and absolute flexibility in order to ensure that all bases are covered.Transformation in our parallel world is easy; however, in the real world the banks and insurance companies need a strong partner. But don’t worry, we’re here for you.P.S.: If you don’t subscribe to the concept of parallel worlds and whatnot, you’re in good company. Even Albert Einstein rejected quantum mechanics in his lifetime. He was particularly perturbed by the fact that information (such as quantum entanglement) appeared to travel faster than the speed of light, something that he had already proven was impossible. He famously called it ‘spooky action at a distance’. But no matter what, quantum mechanics is real.last_img read more
