Grant Runciman (Melrose) Scotland scrum down against South Africa, later losing 33-0Scotland under-20 have made three personnel changes to the starting side ahead of their IRB Junior World Championship match against England at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo, Treviso tomorrow night (kick-off 5.10pm BST).The Scots went down 33-0 to a formidable South Africa side in their opening championship fixture but take confidence from the showing of their Irish counterparts who ran England close in the corresponding Pool fixture on the same night (33-25). Scotland head coach Peter Wright said: “Ireland forced them to make a lot of errors so we have to make sure we put them under just as much pressure; we can do that in defence but the challenge for us is getting our attack working.“We’ll adopt a similar tactic in this match; we need to keep the game alive. We won’t be looking to take them on physically but we need to keep the ball for longer periods, into the sixth phase, to allow us to manipulate their defence and allow our quick runners to take advantage of any mismatches that are created.”Wright has been forced to shuffle his backs following the two-match suspension of full-back Stuart Hogg, having being cited for a dangerous tackle on South Africa stand-off Johan Goosen. The change sees Stirling County’s Glenn Bryce switch from the wing to the vacated full-back position (in which he operated during this season’s 6 Nations) and Kerr Gossman come on to the wing from the bench, having impressed as a replacement against the Boks. In the forwards, Mitch Eadie and Hamish Watson come in as a straight swap for Jamie Swanson and Alex Spence in the back-row. Spence drops out of the 22 and Melrose flanker, Grant Runciman, takes the remaining forward slot on the bench while fellow Melrosian Craig Jackson takes the spare back spot following the promotion of Gossman to the 1st XV.

Dhaka, a five-hundred square miles city has over time become an area of complete urban mayhem. Getting a lake and a narrow strip of green patch on the back side (west) of the plot was a fortune in a city where total city green is not more than five percent. This eight family house is located at United Nations Road at the Baridhara Diplomatic Zone. A deal made between the land owner and the developer was to divide the seven thousand five hundred square feet plot in equal two pieces to construct two six-storied buildings of two-thousand-eight-hundred square feet area on each floor in order to share equally.Save this picture!Courtesy of ShatottoUtilizing seventy five percent of the plot area as per rule was a strong requirement from the clients; however, it became a challenge in terms of designing an open green space. The design suggestion here was to take forty square feet of small area from both the parties as a good gesture, placing along with eight feet gap between the two buildings and five feet road set back as per rule in order to create a two hundred square feet of a green patch and water body in front of the building on the east road. This arrangement was also accompanied by a no boundary wall notion and little benches were set as a token of respect for the passerby and the community. Save this picture!Courtesy of ShatottoThe two buildings developed were almost identical in terms of the ground floor plans and parking area and the basic plan of four houses per building. The simple interior as required by the functional arrangements that connected the beautiful lake and large trees on the west, allowing the south east summer breeze to flow through the entire house with ample light round the day. The road side trees as they grew up spreading its light branches inspired the building to transform it alike into a vertical garden. Save this picture!Courtesy of ShatottoThe use of exposed as cast structural beam and column exterior with terracotta brick infill is also a simple approach friendly to the subtropical climate of Dhaka. The scheme also developed the two roof tops of the buildings as community green with lawns, rain court (collects the rain water) and bushes around a small pavilion as a transformed subtropical architectural vocabulary addressing the concern of “shortage of green and open space” in the city.Save this picture!SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessSymbolic Object Dedicated to Russian Avant-Garde CompetitionArticlesVoivodeship Police Headquarters / mode:lina Architekci + Pracownia Architektoniczna …Articles Share Projects Save this picture!Courtesy of Shatotto+ 32 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/264151/south-water-carees-shatotto Clipboard CopyHouses•Dhaka, Bangladesh Architects: Shatotto Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeShatottoOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousingDhaka3D ModellingBangladeshPublished on August 20, 2012Cite: “South Water Carees / Shatotto” 20 Aug 2012.

Airport protests set new level of solidarity

first_imgHouston airport.Jan. 30 — The wave of airport protests against Trump’s Muslim ban represents a new high-water mark in solidarity with Muslims in the U.S. These demonstrations are a political rebuff to the vicious Islamophobia stoked for a year and a half by Donald Trump, along with his Mexico bashing and many other reactionary themes.In fact, Islamophobia has replaced anti-communism in the 21st century as the primary divisive, racist, divide-and-conquer strategy to foment war, intervention and police surveillance. Now the Islamophobes are being pushed back.Since Sept. 11, 2001, and the World Trade Center bombings, Muslims and those in the movement who support them against ruling-class prejudice and persecution have been on the defensive. Solidarity activities have been relatively small and have been in the shadows.But Donald Trump, Stephen Bannon, Gen. Michael Flynn and company, now hunkered down in the White House, changed all that by issuing a 90-day ban on people coming from six predominantly Muslim countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — and banning Syrian nationals and refugees indefinitely.This reactionary White House circle apparently did not get the message from the 3.3 million people who demonstrated around the country on Jan. 21 at the Women’s March. That march was marked by a high degree of solidarity with Muslim women. Instead, Trump and his reactionary circle, which is moving sharply in an authoritarian direction, provoked a massive movement that was already in motion.100 demonstrations in 42 statesAs of this writing, 100 demonstrations in 42 states have been carried out or are planned. Tens of thousands have already gone to airports to protest. (getgroundgame.com/airportprotests)Television networks have carried the larger, more prominent ones in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta and so forth.The movement has been powerful enough to force courts in four states to put stays on the deportation of immigrants caught up in the ban and its sudden application. Requests for injunctions have been granted in New York City, Seattle, Virginia and Massachusetts. The Massachusetts injunction goes further than the others, which block deportation but permit detention. Massachusetts is not allowing detention.The original ban included all people with green cards. This amounts to a ban on hundreds of thousands of people around the world. In their rush to push the ban through, Trump and his National Strategy Adviser Steve Bannon, an ultra-right, Islamophobic, anti-Semite, informed U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration Services of the ban on the very afternoon it was promulgated. Only the massive struggle that erupted at airports the next day forced the head of Homeland Security, Gen. John Kelly, to rescind the green card ban.In their fanaticism Trump, Bannon, Reince Priebus, Flynn and company showed no concern for all the students from the seven Islamic countries covered by the ban who were returning to continue their studies. They did not care about workers, scientists and technicians returning to their jobs. They showed utter contempt for people coming to be with their families. Even after several court injunctions were obtained, CBP officials refused to allow attorneys to see some detainees and turned away members of Congress who were attempting to find out the status of those detained.This reflects the authoritarian stamp of the Trump inner circle.Ideological and political step forwardThe legal struggle to eradicate the ban altogether has a long way to go. It will take a great deal of political struggle in the streets, on the campuses and in the communities to push back the Trump administration. But the struggle has begun in a very inspiring way.A new sense of solidarity has swept the movement, which got a sense of its power at the J21 Women’s March. That power has been transformed into solidarity and militant rejection of Islamophobia.Anti-Muslim sentiment has been a fundamental ideological and political prop of the ruling class and much of the political establishment since Sept. 11.By coming out en masse across the country, the airport demonstrators have put up determined resistance to the Trump refugee ban. But they have also struck an ideological and political blow against the Islamophobic poison of the ruling class. These demonstrations have laid the basis for future political steps forward.Islamophobia has been used to build Homeland Security. It has been used to militarize the police in cities across the country. Above all, it has been used to promote the so-called “war on terror.”Under the pretext of the “war on terror,” U.S. imperialism and the Pentagon have intervened in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia and lately in Yemen. The military-industrial complex — the makers of drones, smart bombs, military satellites, bombers, fighter planes, helicopters, tanks, munitions of every kind, military robots, etc. — have prospered producing arms for the “war on terror.”From solidarity to anti-imperialismThe solidarity shown with Muslims can cause many to question the ideological and material basis that led to the ban in the first place. It is supposedly to protect the U.S. against terrorist organizations like al-Qaida and the Islamic State group (IS). But the ban is part of a broader offensive against the oil-rich and geostrategic Muslim world of the Middle East and North Africa.It is precisely the Pentagon and the CIA that are responsible for the rise of groups like al-Qaida and IS. Washington has bombed 11 Islamic countries in the last 25 years. The Pentagon has inflicted untold destruction, suffering and death upon countries from Afghanistan to Somalia. The CIA has destroyed all the progressive secular nationalist forces, all those openly anti-imperialist, all the socialist and communist forces in the Middle East.But the imperialists have not stopped their plunder and their oppression. They have taken Iraq’s oil. They have destroyed Libya and taken its oil. They have financed a devastating war trying to topple the independent government of Syria. The region is strewn with millions of refugees escaping the destruction of drone warfare, F-16s, A-10 killing machines. The oil barons are searching and drilling for oil in the coastal areas of Islamic North Africa. U.S. troops are spread throughout the region.Under such conditions, with all progressive and secular forces weakened if not destroyed, it is inevitable that the vacuum of resistance will be filled by reactionary forces. The IS group is a patriarchal, medieval, theocratic organization pledged to drive the Western powers from the Middle East — the powers that divided up the region in the first place.Such forces are at the same time the enemy of both the masses and of imperialism. The “war on terror” has nothing to do with helping women or freeing society. It has to do with reasserting the dominance of imperialism over the oil-rich Middle East and Africa.Along with fighting Trump and his ­reactionary anti-Muslim tirades, the movement should try to match its dynamic political resistance with a determination to get to the bottom of the problem. The movement must see the commonality of racism, misogyny, LGBTQ and all gender oppression, anti-immigrant poison and the struggle against the multinational working class as based in the same substance as Islamophobia.At the root is imperialism, the profit system and the domination of the world by capitalist monopolies.Goldstein is the author of ­“Capitalism at a Dead End” and “Low-Wage Capitalism,” both of which can be purchased from online booksellers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bartoli sustained minor injuries to the legs when the grenade detonated and he had to be hospitalised.”We call on you to carry out an investigation to establish the circumstance that led the police to throw a grenade at this photographer,” the organisation said in a letter to Vienne prefect Bernard Prévost.”The fact that he was clearly identifiable as a photographer – wearing a press armlet and with two cameras hanging from his neck – and the fact that he was keeping his distance from the protesters suggest that he was deliberately targeted, in which case exemplary punishments are called for,” Reporters Without Borders added.Some 15 people were injured at Valdivienne when police clashed with demonstrators who had come to cut down a field of genetically-modified maize. Bartoli said he was on his own, at some distance from the demonstrators and just a few metres from the police, and clearly identifiable as a journalist, when the stun grenade was thrown in his direction.Alain Darrigrand, a reporter with France 2, and Christophe Garnier of LCI and TF1 also said they were deliberately targeted by the police. In a joint statement, they said they were filming the demonstration from a place where they were on their own and easily identifiable by their cameras when the police threw tear gas and a stun grenade from a distance of one metre.They said: “This action targeted us as journalists and was designed to prevent us filming at the height of the demonstration. It succeeded, because we unable to carry on doing our work as reporters for several minutes after this attack.” September 27, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Photographer hurt by stun grenade thrown by police June 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation May 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

JPL Goes After Asteroid Like a Big Game Hunter

first_img Top of the News Business News This graphic depicts the Asteroid Redirect Vehicle conducting a flyby of its target asteroid. During these flybys, ARM would come within 0.6 miles (1 kilometer), generating imagery with resolution of up to 0.4 of an inch (1 centimeter) per pixel. Credit: NASAIt sounds like a plot right out of Hollywood Sci-Fi movie. Grab an asteroid, redirect its course, put in orbit around the moon and land on it…Such an announcement came from Jet Propulsion Laboratory today. Pasadena’s JPL says it plans to use a robotic spacecraft to snatch a multi-ton asteroid from deep space during the first segment of its Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) to eventually put feet on its ground.After corralling the boulder, the plan is for the spacecraft to redirect it to an orbit around the moon in such a way that would make an asteroid accessible to space crews for the first time in history. According to a statement released to the media, NASA plans to conduct a series of ground missions that will help find out the capabilities required for a mission to Mars.To make this a reality, JPL issued a request for proposal to four industry partners seeking the design and development of a craft capable of such a task. The four partners have previously completed conceptual designs for the spacecraft.ARM, a two-part mission that uses both robotic and manned spacecrafts in space, passed review in August, meaning JPL can now proceed to the next phase of its development.The four vendors involved with the craft’s conceptual design are Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Denver, Boeing Satellite Systems in Los Angeles, Orbital ATK of Dulles, Virginia and Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, California. The proposed designs are due to JPL by October 24, who will choose which company builds the craft in 2017.To build such a craft, engineers must take into account many technical aspects, such as performing precise autonomous operations close to low-gravity bodies and controlling touchdowns and liftoffs while holding on to large asteroids. The craft would also need a high-powered solar propulsion system.The JPL statement says, “the robotic ARM spacecraft will demonstrate the world’s most advanced and most efficient electric propulsion system as it travels to a near-Earth asteroid.”NASA plans to pick the specific asteroid they will latch the craft onto by 2020 but have preliminary settled on 2008 EV5 as the target because they believe the rock to be rich in volatiles, water and organic compounds.

Finally, there will be a patriotic sing –a-long and a rendition of the “National March of the United States,” John Philip Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”Due to a prior commitment, Dr. Johnny Long, director of band emeritus, will not be in attendance at the concert but he will be there in spirit. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson When the “The Stars and Stripes Forever” is being played, Long said that his heart swells with pride in appreciation for his country.“There’s no march to compare with it,” Long said. “It is the National March of the United State and there is nothing that makes me prouder than that. It was the unofficial ‘national march” for 50 years and it looked like it would never be the ‘official’ national march. I’m just proud to have had a small part in the Congress of the United States naming the ‘The Stars and Stripes Forever’ the ‘national march.’”Long was the president of the American Bandmasters Association and spearheaded the effort to get Congress to give Sousa’s song the distinction it so deserved.“It looked like the only way to get it done was to go to the President of the United States and get him behind it,” Long said. “But I knew that President Ronald Reagan wasn’t going to see Johnny Long. But I thought he might see Jimmy Said, who was a friend of mine and his.” Said owned music stores all across Oklahoma and had made a large contribution to Reagan’s presidential campaign.“I asked Jimmy if he would talk to President Reagan about getting the ‘Stars and Stripes’ declared the national march and he did,” Long said. “President Reagan asked him who was for it and he said the American Bandmasters Association. The President said, then, he was for it but we still had to get it through Congress.”Long said that Sen. Howell Heflin and Rep. Bill Dickinson came on board as did members of Congress from all across the United States.“Bill Dickinson was chairman of the Armed Services Committee at that time so he had a lot of influence,” Long said. “In 1987, ‘The Stars and Stripes Forever’ became the National March of the United States and that was a proud day for the American Band Masters Association, for me personally and for our country.”Long will not be at the “Salute to Veterans” concert Monday night but he encourages all veterans to be there to be recognized and honored and the people of Pike County to attend and show their appreciation for America’s veterans.
