Five things we learnt about Wales: Round One

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Centre point: Jonathan Davies, who ran great attacking lines against Ireland, scores his second try in DublinBy Paul WilliamsWALES BEAT Ireland 23-21 in Dublin on Sunday in their opening Six Nations fixture, but what did we learn about the men in red? Here’s the lowdown on the good, and not so good, of their performance – and stay tuned for more Welsh analysis throughout the rest of the championship.1. Welsh back-line makes a big impressionEven by modern standards, Wales have assembled an enormous back-line and they dominated the Irish threequarters in a manner rarely seen in Tier One Test rugby. But this wasn’t the barrage of the ten channel that has historically welcomed Ronan O’Gara. The selection of the defensively sound Sexton and the absence of O’Driscoll meant that Wales targeted the 12/13 channel instead – and with enormous success.  Jamie Roberts’s inside angles were destructive and Jonathan Davies’s blend of inside-out and outside-in attacking lines led him to top the try count and ball-carrying stats for both teams (two tries/64m). It meant that the comparatively diminutive centre partnership of Gordon D’Arcy and Fergus McFadden had to make 26 tackles between them, whereas Roberts and Davies made a miserly 12. But whilst the Welsh centre pairing may have dominated midfield, George North was, at times, unplayable. Whether he is running hard, direct lines or more subtle diagonals, North is beginning to embarrass some of the biggest names in rugby. Lions Jamie Heaslip and Rob Kearney were both dispensed with during North’s early touchline burst, but it was the manner in which he dismissed Fergus McFadden that produced the game’s ‘YouTube moment’.2. Never rule out Ryan JonesRyan Jones may no longer be the fulcrum of the Welsh team, but he played a vital role against the Irish. Jones doesn’t possess Dan Lydiate’s technical proficiency, which brought O’Brien, Ferris and Heaslip down to earth in the World Cup, but he is an organised and relentless defender – he was Wales’ third highest tackler with 11. But it is Jones’s ball-carrying that is most valuable to Wales. Whilst he rarely makes the 30-yard runs through the ten channel (the sort that close out Six Nations highlights programmes), it is his persistent five-yard carries in the narrow channels that are so beneficial to Wales. Jones’s heavy and belligerent ball-carrying not only sucks in more guards to the ruck area, it also allows Toby Faletau more freedom to sit wide (and create the sort of breaks that will, at some stage, close out a Six Nations highlights programme). If Wales had lost in Dublin on Sunday, it would have been yet another defeat that the Welsh management could justifiably put down to poor goalkicking. Wales had a success rate of just 42.95% in Dublin which is well below the requisite 75/85% demanded at Test level. Whilst Rhys Priestland’s goalkicking is notoriously temperamental, even he must have been surprised when he missed a 22m tiddler from in front of the posts.  You could hear the words “I could have kicked that” echoing around Wales, and for once they were right. With so many scrum offences resulting in knee-jerk penalty decisions, Warren Gatland needs to consider whether Leigh Halfpenny should be given the kicking tee for the rest of the tournament.What did you make of Wales’ performance? Let us know your thoughts by using the comment box below. Tip tackles lose you matches. Having lost a World Cup semi-final for that very reason, you wouldn’t think the Welsh team need reminding that they shouldn’t lift players ‘above the horizontal’. That’s why Bradley Davies’s decision to upend Donnacha Ryan was unfathomable. It was negligent on so many levels.  Davies’s decision reduced Wales to 14 men and created extra gaps in a defensive line that had played 65 minutes of intense rugby. Ten minutes in the bin also reduced Wales’ options in an already failing lineout. This will have implications beyond the game in Dublin, a citing is certainly in the post and will further deplete Gatland’s second-row options – he is already without Alun Wyn Jones and Luke Charteris. But above all the incident was malicious, genuinely dangerous and a sizable ban is sure to follow.4. The Welsh lineout is brokenWales won in Ireland despite their lineout. What was once deemed an Achilles heel is beginning to resemble a compound fracture. Wales had a lineout completion rate of 71.4% on Sunday (W10, L4) – the worst lineout completion percentage of the opening weekend of Six Nations fixtures. It simply isn’t good enough. Wales’ first lineout saw Huw Bennett throw a tricky, five-yard short ball to the first jumper. Whilst this unorthodox move brought a cheer from the crowd, it spoke volumes about Wales’ lack of confidence in their ability to secure possession. Much has been made of the injuries to Gethin Jenkins, Matthew Rees and Dan Lydiate, but Luke Charteris’s absence is arguably the most damaging. Big debate: Should Leigh Haflpenny be giving the kicking tee permanently?5. Goalkicking wins games Seeing yellow: Bradley Davies is sin-binned3. Wales must remember that rugby is a 15-man game NOT FOR FEATURED last_img read more

The owners of this house asked us to name the house as ‘House of Respect and Happiness’. It was just full one year since they were married. Though they weren’t 20s, they were very strong and fresh, just as cornlian cherry quaking by chilly spring wind. They met at a seminar, got married, and the husband chose the subject of his life as respect, while the wife chose as happiness. They wanted to make a space in their house to carry out exchange and educate.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimConcept of architecture is a big bowl to put all contexts and programs together, that we choose every single word carefully. But in this case, the owner brought the concept in person for us to solve.What is respect and what is happiness? Every single building we design has different programs and circumstances, but especially in this case, we thought we need a widely different approach.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThe land was in Hanghyun-ri, Gapyeong, Gyungki-do. Gapyeong is a street corner to go to Daeseong-ri or Gangchon, where is famous for picnics or membership training. This place became much closer since they paved the road for years. While speeding with cars running through outskirts, we found the way to go into Hyun-ri valley was curling up on the left side.Save this picture!Drawing 4A long time ago when we were coming from Uijeongbu, we met a sweet road like meeting an oasis full of water and palm tree in the middle of wilderness, and that very road was what we met.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimWhen you edge your way through Hyun-ri, there is a land which looks like it’s in a hollow sack. The land was on the top of the housing site, made by cutting the mountain to develop. It was exceedingly hot and rainy in the middle of summer, that the land was damp of rain, and the mountain on the north side was smoking moisture.Save this picture!Cross Section 2Since the land was high on the end of the road, it was quiet and peaceful. Moreover, it had a very fancy face. This building had two different programs. In one house, private space and public space coexists as well as housing and education. Therefore, we designed to cut the building into two parts from the first.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThe couple wanted the house to be small and cozy. Instead, they wanted the library spacious and high to work, educate and discuss with lots of people, contrary to the house.Like two sun, we thought a separation of function to replace and lean on each other, such as: sun and moon, yin and yang, softness and stiffness, cold and warm.Save this picture!Cross Section 1Respect and happiness… We are very weak at such abstract words. The most necessary thing in your generation is respect. We all exist in individualized, fragmentized individuals. The thing we lost while the social border collapsed and the moral law has upgraded is adult and respect. Besides, we also lost the set up for dissolution of social conflict.Respect doesn’t come out of pressure or age. Using honorific and bowing heads are not respect. Respect is an eye on an existence and acceptance of an existence.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimWe’ve seen some architecture of respect. The building of Teogye Lee Hwang is it: Dosan-seodang built for 3 years when he was old, and Nongwoon-Jungsa where his disciples stayed. As for the relationship between the buildings, there is an architectural equipment and consideration of position by putting houses on the ground of same height to make them consider and abstain each other by the change of location and their eyes, rather than making the hierarchy by height. It let us know the true meaning of ‘Kyeung(敬)’-the word that Teogye kept for his whole life. The abstract word has been expressed as a physical space.Save this picture!First Floor PlanArchitecturally, the acceptance between individuals starts from approving each space and eyes. To think about a house that every members gather but each of them live their own life by their thoughts and eyes in their own space to minimize interference, we may easily imagine a huge space or a house of great dimensions. However, it is not a mere problem to solve by expanding the physical space. Securing various heights and various quantity of the space is the key.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimHowever large, if the apartment is designed flat, the spaces gather together to monitor each other. Human become closed and defensive to protect themselves. In that space, there can’t be any respect or trust.That’s how modern house and modern education space looks like. Furthermore, every modern space monitor human for modernity to annihilate the fundamental desire of human for space.Finally, respect is a boundary, eyes, and an attitude between plural existences.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimMost of us design a family house. And we concern about awareness and consideration about the family and existences surrounding the members: physical existences like neighborhood, mountain, river, tree, and also numerous existences which are invisible.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section 1We put two buildings without hierarchy in a slightly different direction to make a gap between them, and set the entrance for each of them in the yard between them. Since the library building had to use the mezzanine, it became higher than the house building. Walking up the outside stairs from the library building, you can meet the guest room, and there is a rooftop to watch movie in the open air or hold a meeting. And you can go over to the rooftop of the house building to watch the village on the north side.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThis is our interpretation about horizontal architecture of ‘Kyeung’ to respect each other’s eyes.Project gallerySee allShow lessMalaca House / Mario Martins AtelierSelected ProjectsDAf Offices / Albert TidySelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Globovisión faces sanctions for its interpretation of the constitution

first_img“These proceedings are disproportionate and absurd, as well as untimely, since the Supreme Court has just started to consider the issue raised by the Globovisión clips.” Conatel launched the proceedings as Chavez, who won the presidential election on 7 October by a wide margin, was once again in Cuba for medical treatment and, because of his health, unable to attend his swearing-in for a new six-year term by the National Assembly due on 10 January, the date set by the constitution. Article 231 of the constitution, nevertheless, specifies that “if, for any reason, the president of the republic is unable to assume office before the National Assembly, he or she shall do so before the Supreme Court”. The highest court has thus ratified the principle of continuity of power by the elected president, supported by this provision.In the video clips, Globovisión takes the opposite view, namely that the postponement of the inauguration raises questions not only about the constitutional date of 10 January, but also the validity of the ceremony itself. It argues that the latter is reduced to a mere formality and questions the validity of the term of office beginning on 10 January, since the main party concerned was absent and did not take the oath of office. A questionable argument, undoubtedly, but one that in no sense renders the station guilty of “inciting hate and sowing panic among citizens”. Follow the news on Venezuela “The current political situation could have led to a genuine legal and political debate within the news media,” Reporters Without Borders noted. “Unfortunately, the dreadful polarisation sapping the country has produced a different result.” Organisation Venezuela’s National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) launched proceedings on 9 January against the terrestrial television station Globovisión over its broadcast of four clips about the postponement of the inauguration of President Hugo Chavez for a new six-year term, originally scheduled for the following day. The videos are based on a specific interpretation of Article 231 of Venezuela’s Bolivarian constitution. The station was banned from rebroadcasting them and from expressing any opinion on the country’s Basic Law.Estos son los micros por los que Conatel abrió… par GlobovisionThe news station, highly critical of the Chavez government, has been the target of similar proceedings on seven previous occasions in recent years. Most recently, it was fined 9 million bolivars (2 million dollars) and its assets were temporarily frozen.Reporters Without Borders believes the charges against the organization to be excessive and once again based on an elastic interpretation of Article 27 of the Social Responsibility in Radio, TV and Electronic Media Law (Resortemec Law), which bans all content that might “incite hate or panic, or disturb public order”. “However debatable Globovisión’s interpretation of Article 231 may be, how could the constitution be read in such a biased fashion as to mean it might incite panic among the population?” the organization asked. “Are citizens so immature that they would be incapable forming their own opinions? Is debate not allowed? Once again a poorly-written law is applied selectively, based on ideological considerations.

St. Louis Fed: Foreclosure Crisis Nears Conclusion

first_img The U.S. mortgage crisis is drawing to a close. That, at least, is the assessment of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, which stated recently that the final remnants of the recession’s “historically elevated rates of extreme mortgage distress and defaults” are largely in the rear view mirror and that the foreclosure crisis should officially end early this year.Several industry reports over the past several months bear the bank’s statements out. Earlier this week, ATTOM Data Solutions reported that foreclosures have hit a 10-year low nationally, and that even those foreclosures still on the books are mainly remnants of originations from a decade ago.“The end is near,” the bank wrote in its look at Eighth District states (the bank’s region). “The condition of current mortgage borrowers considered as a group—nationwide or state by state—is once again comparable to the period just before the Great Recession and the onset of the foreclosure crisis.”The bank targets the last quarter of 2007 as the beginning of the crisis. By the end of 2016, “many as 10 million mortgage borrowers may have lost their homes,” the bank stated.But by the end of 2016, several states had already exited their respective foreclosure crises, including Missouri and Tennessee. According to the bank, Arkansas and Illinois are primed to do so soon.A few states, namely Indiana, Kentucky and Mississippi, however, experienced much longer crises than a decade and have held onto higher rates of foreclosed properties. These states, the bank said, saw their foreclosure troubles start as early as 2001.Nevertheless, the bank wrote, foreclosure issues in Eighth District States, many of which were plagued by abnormally high foreclosure numbers during the recession, are nearing the accepted national benchmark of 2.81 percent of homes in foreclosure. Citing data from the Mortgage Bankers Association, the bank reported that foreclosure rates in all Eighth District states have been in sharp and steady freefall since 2013.According to the bank, the national foreclosure rate at the end of 2016 was 3.2 percent, which should return to 2.81 percent this quarter. All remaining Eighth District states should be out of their crises by the end of 2017, except for Mississippi, which, still contending with a 4.27 percent foreclosure rate, is expected to close out its crisis by mid-2018.

San Francisco and San Jose Approaching Pre-Crash Highs

San Francisco and San Jose Approaching Pre-Crash Highs The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Staff Writer Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The most recent Home Value Forecast (HVF) Monthly Housing Report by Pro Teck caught its readers with a bit of a surprise. There were some new additions to the company’s top 10 list of core-based statistical areas (CBSAs) that saw value gains this month, and two dominant CBSAs dropped off the list since the first time in 2017—San Francisco and San Jose.Despite not making the cut, San Francisco and San Jose still maintain their top two positions for the highest average selling price. San Francisco showed a 59 percent increase in average home price compared to pre-crash high to $1.35 million and San Jose showed 4 percent increase to $1.1 million. This trajectory in average selling price mimicked the average household income for the two cities. The average household income recorded for Q1 2018 for San Francisco is $114,063 marking an increase of 49.5 percent, while the increase for San Jose is 41.5 percent. Tom O’Grady, CEO Pro Teck, concluded, “they are still hot markets.”Increase in average household income is not the only factor affecting the HVF; Pro Teck also takes into account affordability by calculating as the average mortgage payment needed to buy an average priced home. Both San Francisco and San Jose hit bubble territory (meaning home value highs not seen since 2005-2007) marking an all-time low for affordability. DS News examined bubble trends in its December 2017 cover story “Housing Bubble 2.0.” In it, writer Nicole Casperson spoke with CoreLogic CEO, Frank Nothaft who noted similar regional bubble concerns. “While economists may not foresee a housing bubble on a national level, bubbles may occur in localized markets, as they have in the past if the right elements are at play,” said Nothaft.

Rodeo wows ATFA attendees
