The Championship blog: Teams begin B&I Cup campaign

first_img The Greene King IPA Championship: …took a backseat at the weekend thanks to the British and Irish CupBy Richard GraingerGreene King IPA Championship action takes a break for two weeks to make way for the first and second round of pool matches of the British & Irish Cup.Although some Championship outfits use this competition to rotate their squad, for others it is an excellent format for pepping up a flagging season — even in mid-October. This will be the fifth season of the second tier cup competition that currently involves all 12 Championship clubs and three each from Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Leinster A are the current holders, by virtue of a 78th minute Noel Reid penalty last May, beating Newcastle Falcons 17-18 at Kingston Park.When the B&I Cup group rounds conclude in mid-January, the winners of the six groups, plus the two best runners-up will line up for the quarter-finals, where the teams ranked one to four will have home advantage.Leinster A 49, Ealing Trailfinders 8Cup action brought no solace for the West Londoners who suffered another heavy defeat, this time at the hands of head coach Girvan Dempsey’s young side. Although Ealing never gave up, Leinster’s impressive fly-half Cathal Marsh led the rout with a try and seven conversions.Fresh influence: Ollie Smith joins WelshLondon Welsh 26, London Scottish 32Welsh decided to host the battle of the Exiles down the road at Newbury, but paid the price for a host of errors and poor discipline that allowed their former neighbours to capitalise with six penalties. Despite scoring two tries a-piece, the former Aviva Premiership side, who had made 14 changes from their previous outing, could have no complaints at the outcome. Former England and Leicester centre, Ollie Smith, joins Welsh’s coaching staff this week.Cornish Pirates 34, Ulster A 17This was a vintage performance by Pirates, who won the inaugural final in 2010. A delighted assistant coach Harvey Biljon said: “Ulster had a lot of Heineken Cup experience and are a tough outfit.” Pirates were made to work hard for their win but dominated the final quarter and secured the bonus point when Matt Evans ran home from 40 metres.Cross Keys 20, Moseley 16 during the Aviva Premiership match between Harlequins and Leeds Carnegie at The Stoop on November 28, 2010 in London, England. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Cross Keys, beaten finalist two years ago, raced to a14-3 led, despite intensive early pressure from the visitors. However, Moseley, who are still looking for their first competitive win this term, almost pulled a 20-3 interval deficit back with two tries of their own. However, despite a tense finish, a bad-tempered second half will be remembered for a massive brawl and a flurry of cards from referee Mr Stuart Gaffikin.Bristol 21, Leeds Carnegie 17Both sides made sweeping changes but produced an entertaining encounter, despite wet and windy conditions, at the Memorial Stadium on Sunday. The hosts fought back from a 7-15 deficit, with tries from Jarad Williams and Ben Glynn.Jersey 28, Ayr 16Jersey were pushed all the way by their visitors whose 1200 mile round-trip did nothing to dampen their enthusiasm. However, the Scottish outfit were reduced to 13 men in the final quarter and Jersey, who were dominant in the scrum, capitalized and notched the bonus point with two late tries.Number 20: James Shanahan, earlier in the seasonPlymouth 28, Nottingham 9Nottingham, with three players seeing yellow at Brickfields on Friday night, were another side whose lack of discipline let them down. Albion head coach James Shanahan was delighted with his side’s performance but rued missing out on the bonus point: “It would have been good to have got the bonus point but tonight was all about winning.”Rotherham 12, Bedford Blues 11The Titans overcame a Bedford side determined to transform their dreadful start to the season in awful conditions at Clifton Lane on Saturday. Bedford scored the only try of the game, but four Juan Pablo Socino penalties were enough to get Rotherham the points. Elsewhere, Munster A started strongly with a 39-8 win over Stirling County and Edinburgh Accies lost 13-53 to Pontypridd.British & Irish Cup action continues this weekend.last_img read more

Brian Moore’s flawless refereeing debut

first_imgThursday Mar 4, 2010 Brian Moore’s flawless refereeing debut Outspoken commentator Brian Moore recently decided to put his whistle where his mouth is, passing the RFUs Entry Level Referee Award, thus qualifying him as a ref, leading to his rather interesting debut recently.Fifteen years after retirement, the now 48 year old former British & Irish Lions and England hooker got his boots back on in a bid to experience what its like to be the man in the middle.“I’d got into an argument over the refereeing of the front row. I reckoned I’d been a hooker in over 75,000 scrums during my career so I knew what I was talking about,” explained Moore.“Then the questioner asked how many front rows I’d ever refereed, and he suggested I take the ELRA course to find out what it was like. So I thought ‘yes, I’ll do it’,” he added.So having completed the course, he recently got out there for his first match in charge, tights and all. His task was to ref a match between Rosslyn Park Nomads and a London Scottish XV, but things didnt go all to plan, as he explained in his regular column. “As the teams lined up for the kick-off I checked both captains were ready and with a frisson of excitement blew the whistle. “What followed was, by common assent, a flawless demonstration of officiating. I made no mistakes and the players, other officials and crowd had nothing to complain about as a referee you cannot realistically expect positive acclamation. “The game flowed and Park scored a scintillating try with the sort of handling that unfortunately escapes England’s backs all too often. “Yes, for the 2 minutes I was on the field I was brilliant; until my right calf tore and it felt like I had been shot by some embittered and jealous member of the fraternity, envious at all the misplaced attention my foray to the dark side had attracted. “I could only hobble off with the laughter ringing in my ears; my embarrassment complete and pride demolished. “Lessons I perhaps didn’t learn nobody likes a smart-arse, and get fit before you do this.“ Time: 0:56 Note: You can read his full column here.

It is a strong concrete wall the element that unfolds the whole project. The wall, that is quite high in some areas and semi-buried in other areas is a protection mechanism: on the one hand, it protects the house from negative orientations –north and west- and on the other hand, it also protects the house from the views and perspectives from the surrounding plots. And, finally, it is as well a mechanism of containment of land, since it allows the house to generate flat spaces and adapt itself to the strong unevenness of the land. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Josema CutillasSave this picture!Sketch 4The wall, then, makes a clear “L”-shaped gesture whose consequence is very clear: the house thus opens fully towards a horizontal and very private garden, facing south and east. The façade that looks to that garden is soft and warm. It is made up of vertical pieces of Iroko wood and large glass hollows –the bedrooms are placed in the long body and the living room is placed in the short body. In contrast, the north and west facades are rougher, they are the realm of the wall, the back of the “L”; they are dominated by the concrete and zinc panels. Only some colored holes allow the entrance of light at very specific points.Save this picture!© Pablo García EsparzaA second “L” gesture, drawn by a smaller wall, creates a lower body, where the lobby, the service area, and the garage are housed. This body is also a defensive element: its frontal façade, which is very abstract and shaped by the Iroko wood, prevents any view of the interior, and its rear façade, generated by the aforementioned wall, acts as a front for the garden. It protects it from the access street and makes all the views from inside go towards the distant landscape.Save this picture!© Josema CutillasIn terms of construction, the house is understood as a game of planes, it does not seek to be a language of boxes or volumes. Thus, the aforementioned concrete walls are the boundary planes towards the ground; the wooden surfaces are the planes that generate the enclosure towards the garden and, finally, a huge zinc cover is an oblique plane that flies, levitating on the wall. In fact, its structure is suspended from the wall by metal pillars, as it is also supported in the plane of the façade of the garden.Save this picture!© Josema CutillasIt is a discrete, introverted house, and its main space, the central garden, is calm and soft, it is a natural environment that escapes any sensation of exposure. It is impossible to perceive, once one is located in the center of such space, that the house is placed in a residential area made of very narrow and exposed plots. The materials are natural. It could be said that they are sincere since they are not painted or covered: concrete with the texture of sawn wood boards, zinc (natural zinc, not pre-patinated) and the beautiful iroko wood treated with oil.Save this picture!© Pablo García EsparzaSave this picture!Longitudinal Section Living RoomSave this picture!© Pablo García EsparzaInside, on the other hand, the material discourse is almost the opposite. The crudity of the natural materials that govern the exterior gives way to the smooth and white surfaces of the partitions and the underside of the roof. There are, however, some memories of the material “sincerity” which characterizes the exterior: for example, the floors of the bedrooms and certain vertical walls are clad in natural Danish pine wood; or also the pillars, although they are painted in white are always exposed from the inside. In short, the interior space is a more abstract environment, dominated by the sloping forms of the ceilings and certain partitions, and by the smooth light that slips through them.Save this picture!Axonometry 3Save this picture!Sketch 3The living room is probably the highlight of the project. It is the end of the “L”, the largest interior space and the area where the interior and the exterior merge. A large glass slide door and the porch created by the zinc roof, allow the living of this spaces as a continuity of the garden itself. Thus, behind it is the kitchen and the soft wood of Danish pine, and on its front, framed by the low porch (exactly 236cm high) and the sloping ceiling, is the garden and the views of the mountains of the Pamplona area. Isolation, privacy, and naturalness of certain materials treated with great care are, in short, the ingredients of this residential project.Save this picture!© Josema CutillasProject gallerySee allShow lessLänsisalmi Power Station / Parviainen ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSportcampus Zuiderpark / FaulknerBrowns ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Year:  2017last_img read more

Bates Wells and Braithwaite on VAT and The London Marathon

first_imgBates Wells and Braithwaite on VAT and The London Marathon It suggests that that VAT will be levied on the pledged amounts raised by all runners if charities refuse to allow any runner to take part in future marathons if they fail to meet their pledge for the marathon they run that year.This is not the case. Customs & Excise policy team have assured Bates Wells and Braithwaite that The Times’ article is not correct. The article apparently arose from a rogue ruling to a charity by one of their officers in the field which has now been rescinded. The policy remains as published in the Charities VAT notice. In other words, if a charity asks a runner to pledge to raise a sum of money, and the runner can still take part in the marathon if they fail to meet the pledge, there is no VAT charge. A charity blacklisting a runner from entering future marathons using a charity provided place would not taint this.Bates Wells and Braithwaite should know: the firm helped Customs & Excise to write the Charities VAT notice. This explains that no VAT is charged on money raised by a runner, if a charity asks the runner to pledge to raise a sum of money, but allows the runner to take part in the event whether or not they meet the pledge.

The article states that Customs & Excise will be “grabbing” £4.5 million in VAT from money raised by charities whose supporters take part in the London Marathon using places secured in the event by the charities under the Marathon’s Gold Bond Scheme.

Opinion: Why Beto O’Rourke’s campaign will end like Hillary Clinton’s

first_imgOpinion: We need to stop defining politicians simply on their public speaking Twitter Facebook Molly Jenkinshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/molly-jenkins/ ReddIt Opinion: Why we should focus on America’s educational system Molly Jenkins What we’re reading: Former Vice President dies at 93, Chad President killed on frontlines Hillary Clinton is going to end the country’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, reform the public school system and provide subsidized health care, her daughter told students on campus Monday morning.Chelsea Clinton visited the Brown-Lupton Student Center lounge to answer questions about her mother’s campaign in an effort to help voters make informed decisions in today’s Texas primary. Chelsea Clinton said she joined her mother’s campaign because she thinks the nation needs a fighter – something she said her mother has been her whole life. Facebook Molly Jenkinshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/molly-jenkins/ Opinion: Why I am thankful for my liberal friends, family + posts Linkedin Opinion: my thoughts after the Stoneman Douglas school shooting printBeto O’Rourke is an El Paso Congressman who is running in the 2018 Senate race against incumbent Senator Ted Cruz.O’Rourke’s campaign started in a similar manner to how Cruz’s 2012 campaign did– grassroots. But that is the end of their similarities.Similar to most Democrats running in the 2018 election, O’Rourke’s campaign is running on steam from the left’s fiery hatred for President Donald Trump. In some cases, they will win because of this. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Republicans lose the House– but  I also wouldn’t count on it.Many on both sides of the aisle strongly believe that this loud uproar against Trump will undoubtedly lead to numerous Democratic wins– even in deep red states like Texas. Let me point out that in the 2016 Presidential Election the majority of this same population thought Hillary Clinton would without a doubt win. I mean– how could an experienced woman lose to a brash celebrity with no political experience? Personally, I wasn’t sure who would win the 2016 Presidential Election but I was not confident that Clinton would win with a slam dunk as many believed. From my point of view, even though social media, the news media and the people around me were screaming their support for Clinton, I knew that there was power in the silent majority. While it was unclear if the silent majority would vote Trump, I knew they wouldn’t vote Clinton. In the 2016 Presidential Election, it was cool to vote for Clinton. Voting Trump meant you were a racist, sexist, homophobic, bigot who had no morals and no brain (those are not my words but those were the words I saw on my social media). So of course, when people are saying you’re these terrible things if you are going to vote for Trump (even it’s because you think he is the better of two evils and would pick better SCOTUS nominees) you’re probably not going to share your views. I know I didn’t. In comparison, in past presidential elections, people on both sides proudly displayed their signs. Even in 2004 while living in liberal Portland, Oregon, my family proudly displayed our selection of Bush Cheney signs and bumper stickers. Sure, we had issues, like our neighbor stealing our signs, but it didn’t matter. We were proud supporters and we weren’t labeled as evil for it.Anyways, when 2016’s election day rolled around and Trump won the world freaked out in shock and disbelief and I sat unshaken. I wasn’t surprised. As hard as it may seem to believe, the majority of America doesn’t actively post their political beliefs on social media and doesn’t live in urban areas that tend to be more liberal. The majority of America lives in small towns, where they pledge allegiance to the flag, drive their Chevys, go hunting, don’t excessively use social media and tend to vote Republican. Yes, it was the silent majority that swung the election of 2016 and it will be the same for Texas’ 2018 election.Now, Texas Republicans aren’t shy to say they are such. They are loud, proud, red-blooded, tough Texans. But, because it’s the norm, they don’t need to shout about it. The Democrats in Texas, on the other hand, have to be loud. They have to say, “Hey, vote Beto.” Because if they didn’t, people wouldn’t even know there was an O’Rourke to vote for. They have to put signs in their yards for the Senate race (and let’s be real most Americans don’t put signs in their yard unless it’s a Presidential race. Heck, most people can’t name their representatives). They do this because this, in their minds, is their chance. And, to some extent, it is their chance. It is Texas Democrats’ chance to have an election where the Democrat does better than usual, but hold my beer while I break it to you– O’Rourke isn’t winning.Ah yes, he has fundraised a lot of money. And oh yes, tell me again how he did it without Super-PACs. Great, kudos to him. But here is the deal– Cruz doesn’t need to outraise O’Rourke. He has plenty of money raised already, he has a slew of big named Texans that support him, he has name recognition and he has already done an incredible job as Senator (be my guest to compare how many bills Cruz has sponsored or introduced that became law and compare it to that of O’Rourke).O’Rourke, on the other hand, doesn’t have any of that.What else does O’Rourke not have? He doesn’t know how to be a Senator and what it takes. For starters, a Senator, contrary to what O’Rourke thinks, has a lot going on and can’t, unfortunately, take time to talk to every single constituent and personally write every single press release. Press releases are crucial because it allows the public to look and see exactly what their elected official is doing, how they are voting, what bills are they sponsoring and introducing, and it helps them keep them accountable. Cruz’s webpage has a section just for press releases (as almost every member of Congress has) and it is updated multiple times daily.O’Rourke’s webpage doesn’t even have a place for press releases. He does, however, have a blog that he hasn’t updated since January (it’s April).Now, I was told that the reason for this is because he doesn’t believe it’s right to have someone else write his words and what he is doing. Which, on some level is noble of him. But see, that’s just not how it works. You are not going to be able to run a Senate office– let alone be a leader for your constituents– if you can’t handle having a press secretary help you get your message out. You just can’t lead alone. It takes a team. And If you aren’t able to fathom trusting others with helping you do your job, why should anyone trust you with the job yourself? Now, there are many more things I could go on about but I won’t. I’ll leave you with the numbers and the numbers say it all.According to the New York Times, the results of Texas’ 2018 primary elections consisted of 1,037,779 Texans voted Democrat and 1,543,674 voted Republican.It’s more than likely that no one will be switching parties like they did in the 2016 presidential election. So those numbers alone speak for themselves. But to elaborate a bit more– O’Rourke received 61.8 percent of the Democratic vote, while Cruz won 81.3 percent of the Republican vote. Even if Cruz failed to gain the support of the other 14.7 percent of Republican votes and O’Rourke received the other 38.2 percent of the Democratic vote, Cruz would still win.O’Rourke has earned some kudos for mobilizing Democratic voters in Texas (my home state of Oregon could really use a Republican O’Rourke) but he won’t earn the title of Senator. Cruz’s “Tough as Texas” campaign will ultimately smother O’Rourke like the sun smothers President George W. Bush’s hometown of Midland, Texas.
