After what seemed a lifetime, but was merely a two week break, the Six Nations is finally ready to get back under way with a number of questions to be answered. Firstly, will Wales be able to maintain their recent momentum and dash Ireland‘s dreams of only a third ever Grand Slam? And will Scotland be able to secure their first victory over England at Twickenham for over 20 years? We have highlighted the five key battles the teams face in pursuit of victory.England v ScotlandMike Brown v Stuart HoggIt was clear that England missed Mike Brown against Ireland as the red roses withered under a barrage of Irish high balls at the Aviva Stadium. The Irish kicked the ball away 44 times in 80 minutes however Brown’s timely return from concussion is going to be met with another headache in the form of Stuart Hogg. The Glasgow Warrior has been in electrifying form in the opening three fixtures despite his team’s inability to keep composure in the final minutes. Hogg has beaten more defenders (12) and gained more ground than anyone else this tournament amassing 317 meters in the process and is well on his way to surpassing the standards that earned him a Lions call.Ben Youngs v Greig LaidlawBen Youngs appears almost symbolic in the debate on England’s gameplan – or the lack of it. Critics have argued that the scrumhalf lacks the box-kicking prowess of Richard Wigglesworth and isn’t quite as sharp as Danny Care around the fringes. However Youngs will be hoping to show that his all-court game when he clashes with Greig Laidlaw on Saturday. The Scottish captain is aiming for his country’s first victory at Twickenham since 1983 and whose own kicking precision will be pivotal in pinning back the fleeting feet of Jack Nowell and Anthony Watson.Wales v Ireland Jamie Roberts v Robbie HenshawRobbie Henshaw will be hoping to repeat his man of the match performance against England in what will be only his ninth test appearance. While the man from Connacht managed to shackle the elusive running of Bath centre Jonathan Joseph he faces arguably his biggest challenge in the test arena in the form of the 17 stone battering ram, Jamie Roberts. The Welshman, and two times Lions tourist, has put in a number of concrete performances this tournament, but his ability to consistently smash through the gain line in a congested midfield will be crucial to the homeside’s momentum. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Halfpenny kickLeigh Halfpenny v Johnny SextonWhile not occupying the same position on the field the key to victory at the Millenium Stadium will most certainly lie with the place kicking of Leigh Halfpenny and Johnny Sexton. In their first three fixtures Wales and Ireland have managed just seven tries between them, instead relying on the boot to build a score. Halfpenny is currently the tournament’s leading points scorer with 39, managing 15 in his last outing against France, and will be hoping to go kick-for-kick with Sexton if Wales have any chance of derailing the Irish advance towards a first Grand Slam since 2009.Alun Wyn Jones v Paul O’ConnellPaul O’Connell will reach the lofty environs of rugby centurions as he wins his 100th cap on Saturday, yet it will be his ability to dominate the Welsh lineout that could lead to Ireland’s 11th straight victory under Joe Schmidt. The men from the Emerald Isle lost just one of their 12 lineouts at the Aviva stadium against England whilst stealing possession from their opposition on three occasions. Alun Wyn Jones and second row partner Luke Charteris will look to negate the jumping of O’Connell and Devin Toner as the inevitable kicks out of hand from Sexton will leave them pinned back in their half. Although six years younger than the Irish captain, Alun Wyn Jones is almost his mirror image, matching O’Connell’s tenacity, unrelenting work rate and his loathing of defeat. Mike Brown evades Stuart Hogg

This long untouched sector of eastern Paris is currently undergoing a vast transformation. Paris Habitat-OPH owns 1222 housing units on a 5-hectare plot bordered by avenue de Flandre, Rue du maroc, Rue de Tanger and Rue Riquet in the south-west of the city’s 19th arrondissement. In 1995, the local authorities and Paris Habitat-OPH decided to begin regenerating this portion of city, situated in the heart of a rapidly expanding urban network. The block targeted by the project is enclosed and dense, comprising primarily social housing ranging from six to sixteen stories high, towers and low-rise buildings from the 1970s and, in the case of the Tectône Tower, the 1980s. The main aim of the project was to open up the block by redeveloping the Square du maroc. To this end, Paris-Habitat-OPH demolished the maroc Tower and replaced it with new housing. The local authorities created two new pedestrian streets between Rue de Tanger and avenue de Flandre, connected by a public garden. The building, which won the 2008 Paris Habitat architecture competition, marks the successful opening up of the block and stands at its entrance, now transformed into a public garden. Save this picture!© Hervé AbbadieProjects The building’s monolith design echoes the Tectône Tower and blends in with the garden, with three visible façades, two of which face onto the garden to the north and east. The loggias on the south side and the double skin on the east are designed as extensions of the living space, accessed via sliding white or transparent glass panels. The compact building comprises apartments stretching its full width on the narrower adjoining side, and apartments of a variety of orientations throughout the rest of the space. all offer street or garden views framed by prefabricated wooden boxes covered in lacquered steel. Save this picture!© Hervé AbbadieDistribution / Lay-out The majority of the floors feature six apartments. The final two floors contain five and four apartments, with the building narrowing on the upper floors. All the apartments have balconies, loggias or private gardens on the ground floor. They either stretch the full width of the building or have corner lounges providing multiple exposures. Save this picture!© Hervé AbbadieDensity/Structure The structure is based on a system of slabs and load-bearing walls with a central concrete core containing the staircase and lift. The partitioning is independent of the structural frame created by the walls and slabs. The apartment lay-out has been designed to allow for changes to the partitioning, and each apartment is open-plan and can therefore be modified as needed. Save this picture!© Cécile SeptetEnvelope/External Insulation The non-load bearing north and south walls are fitted with external insulation, which seals off the end of each slab to prevent thermal bridging. The system’s wooden framework is light and easy to construct. The panels comprise sheets of wood, mineral wool insulation and a rainscreen. a traditional wooden frame crowns the building on floors eight and nine at its steepest point (approx. 24°). Save this picture!© Cécile SeptetSkin/Double Skin The external skin is light-sensitive alucoil cladding ranging from white to pale grey in colour. The loggias on the south side and the double skin on the east are designed as extensions of the living space. These are accessed by transparent or white sliding glass panels, which modulate sound and temperature.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe City of Chicago Gets 3D PrintedArchitecture NewsRoyal Adelaide Hospital Open Ideas CompetitionEventProject locationAddress:7 Rue du Maroc, 75019 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Located in the only closed condominium in the city, the residence is implanted in a land of 12m x 27.5m.

The amplitude of the environment is also reflected by the horizontal continuity and integration of the living room, kitchen and dining room with the side balcony, in which the spa and a pergola made of wood and glass were positioned. The service’s core (laundry and toilet) is behind the kitchen.Save this picture!Floor PlansOn the upper level, the couple’s suite is separated from the children’s suites by a corridor that crosses through the living room’s double height ceiling. The main suite faces the front of the lot, with a volume in balance, whose projection forms the shelter of a vehicle, and the other suites were positioned in the later range of the volume. The circulation on this floor is illuminated by a series of vertical openings that create a play of light and shadow in the internal space and an interesting rhythm on the facade of the house.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe materiality of the house results from the contrast between the two floors. The ground floor is an apparent concrete box on which rests the pure volume of the dorms, whose neutrality and lightness is represented by the white color. The tension between the materiality of the volumes is also perceived inside the residence. The combination of these elements with wood, stones, water, and vegetation also maximizes the formal result of this cozy and permeable residence.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiProject gallerySee allShow lessCould Carrots Make Concrete Stronger and Greener?Architecture NewsAPSS Crossing Temporary 2018 | Call for ParticipantsWorkshop Share AN House / Studio Bloco Arquitetura Year: CopyAbout this officeStudio Bloco ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIgrejinhaBrazilPublished on August 10, 2018Cite: “AN House / Studio Bloco Arquitetura” [Casa AN / Studio Bloco Arquitetura] 10 Aug 2018.

Durante esta temporada de elecciones en Estados Unidos, mucha gente sigue luchando por acceder al derecho universal burgués al voto, supuestamente la fundación de la “democracia” capitalista.Ha sido una lucha cuesta arriba desde 1776 cuando solo los hombres blancos con propiedades que eran protestantes podían votar legalmente. A todos los demás se les negó: católicos, cuáqueros, judíos, miembros de naciones nativas, asiáticos, negros, esclavizados o libres, mujeres, casadas o no y hombres blancos pobres.Ha habido victorias históricas a lo largo de los siglos y retrocesos. En las décadas de 1860 y 1870, muchos estados comenzaron a negar el voto a las personas condenadas por delitos graves, una medida vinculada a negar este derecho a los negros que acababan de ser liberados de la esclavitud.Pero en 2018 en Florida, más de un millón de personas con antecedentes penales, desproporcionadamente negros y morenos, recuperaron su derecho al voto después de que el 64% de los votantes, la mayoría blancos, aprobaron una enmienda a la Constitución del estado.Entonces los reaccionarios se pusieron manos a la obra. La Legislatura de Florida, controlada por los republicanos, impulsada por el gobernador Ron DeSantis, impuso “tarifas” y “multas” a las personas anteriormente encarceladas como requisitos para recuperar el voto. La Corte de Apelaciones del Undécimo Circuito de EE.UU. confirmó la ley.Así que debe haber parecido una generosidad magnífica cuando el demócrata multimillonario Michael Bloomberg recaudó $16 millones para pagar multas, tarifas y restitución a unos 31.000 residentes de Florida con antecedentes penales, para restaurar sus derechos de voto antes de las elecciones generales de 2020. (snopes.com)¡Qué regalo caritativo! NoBloomberg en realidad coordinó las contribuciones de solo el 3% del millón de personas a las que se les negó el voto. Podría haberlos concedido a todos. Según la lista de 2020 “Los más ricos de la Tierra” de la revista Forbes, el propio Bloomberg tiene un valor de 54.900 millones de dólares, por poseer sistemas de información utilizados por los operadores del mercado de valores para analizar datos y generar riqueza masiva.¿Cuánto es mil millones? Si se midiera un millón en segundos, equivaldría a 11,6 días. Mil millones de segundos es igual a 31,7 años.Piense en la caridad capitalista que Bloomberg descartó como unos pocos segundos en la cantidad de años que esos “criminales” de Florida estuvieron encarcelados y trabajando por salarios de esclavos. Su “contribución” valió unos días de los años de tiempo laboral que le tomó a trabajadores de todos los géneros, nacionalidades, edades y habilidades generar las ganancias que lo convirtieron en un súper multimillonario.El demócrata Bloomberg entregó caridad capitalista a algunas personas. El enfoque republicano es un ataque descarado para privar de sus derechos a la mayoría, desde destripar la Ley de Derechos Electorales de 1965 que protege a los votantes negros, imponer leyes de identificación de votantes, cerrar los lugares de votación, atacar las boletas electorales por correo, hasta política para entendidos [dog whistles] para los justicieros supremacistas blancos para unirse a “la operación de seguridad electoral del Ejército por Trump” hasta amenazar a los votantes en distritos predominantemente negros.Afortunadamente, al igual que la lucha liderada por personas anteriormente esclavizadas contra el “Terror Blanco” de la era de la Reconstrucción de la década de 1870, la gente se está organizando para defender las urnas y el acceso al derecho al voto. Una coalición de organizaciones progresistas ha movilizado a más de 6.000 “defensores de las elecciones”. ¡Qué contraste ofrece la democracia obrera socialista de Cuba con los casi 250 años de implacable negación y represión de los votantes en Estados Unidos!Según su constitución nacional, Cuba es una democracia socialista en la cual la Asamblea Nacional del Poder Popular es su parlamento y órgano supremo del poder estatal. De sus más de 600 diputados, la mitad son nominados en reuniones públicas de los municipios. Durante las elecciones ordinarias, del 70% a más del 90% del electorado asiste a las asambleas de nominación.Para garantizar la representación de todo el pueblo, la mitad de los diputados son nombrados por organizaciones de masas, como sindicatos, grupos de mujeres, cooperativas de agricultores, federaciones de estudiantes y consejos populares. ¡Ningún partido político, incluido el Partido Comunista de Cuba, tiene permitido hacer campaña!La edad para votar es de 16 años para los ciudadanos cubanos que hayan residido en la isla durante al menos dos años.En las elecciones presidenciales estadounidenses de 2016, votó el 46% del electorado. Pero, ¿quién sabe cuántos votantes quedaron privados de sus derechos bajo el sistema capitalista?En las elecciones parlamentarias de Cuba en 2018, votó el 85% del electorado.Así es el derecho al voto en una democracia obrera, en una democracia revolucionaria de base.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Special judge S B Bahalkar granted bail to the 89 accused who were represented by advocates Amrut Adhikari and Atul Patil. The defence argued that their clients were arrested on mere suspicion, further questioning the validity of three FIRs being registered for one incident. So far 251 people have been booked in the case of which 126 were charge sheeted. Several accused with serious charges continue to remain in prison. A copy of the order is yet to be made available. The incident was given a political colour by several politicians repeatedly highlighting the religion of the men murdered. However, it was later learned that, both, the victim and the accused belonged to the same religion. Five days before the lynching of two sadhus and their driver in Gadchinchle village on April 16, rumours of thieves, child-lifters and alleged organ-harvesters on the prowl were doing the rounds in 50 villages across Palghar. Finally on the fateful night, a mob of nearly 250-300 people sadhus Chikne Maharaj Kalpavrukshagiri (70) and Sushilgiri Maharaj (35) – and their driver Nilesh Telgade (30), 140 km north of Mumbai. The prosecution was represented by Special public prosecutor Satish Maneshinde while advocate PN Ojha represented the families of the Sadhus. Manishinde said that most of the accused granted bail on Saturday, were arrested subsequently. The case has now been posted for hearing on February 15. Next Story
