O’Callaghan pays tribute to Paul Darbyshire

first_imgTAGS: Munster Paul Darbyshire and Munster celebrate their Magners League victory in MayThe rugby community in Ireland was struck by the news that Paul Darbyshire passed away in the early hours of Monday morning, 20 June. Munster’s head of strength and conditioning was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in September last year, and died peacefully in his sleep, aged 41.The news came as players and supporters from all four Irish provinces were embarking on the second day of a cycle ride to raise money for the Darbyshire family and research into the illness. The route covers over 270 miles, and started at Musgrave Park, Cork on Sunday, and will finish in Darbyshire’s home town of Warrington, near Liverpool, on Thursday. Every member of the Munster squad has been involved in the event whether taking part in the cycling or pitching up for the craic and to lend a hand, in support of an integral member of their team.Donncha O’Callaghan was just one player turning out for the second leg of the journey, cycling the 46 miles from Thomond Park to Roscrea RFC. Speaking to Rugby World in May, O’Callaghan said: “The initial shock when we heard the news of his diagnosis was frightening for us because Darbs around our squad is like Superman. He brought an unbelievable professionalism to us, and the mindset that your body could do anything and would never fail.”Darbyshire maintained his involvement with the Munster squad and was present at the team’s home games throughout the season, despite his illness. He also had a hand in devising the cycle ride, no easy journey, just like his training sessions!Darbyshire played rugby league for Warrington Wolves, and stayed with the club in a coaching capacity after his retirement in 1997, before committing to Munster 10 years later. Darbyshire was a popular member of every team he was part of, and a tribute will be made at the Wolves’ game against St Helens on Friday. “It’s incredibly sad, especially for such a great fella, a great friend who was great at his job. All our first thoughts were for Darbs and his beautiful family, his four kids and his lovely wife Lyndsay. It’s going to be a massive loss for us in terms of our coach, but the hole that’s going to be left by his friendship is the thing that you’ll never be able to put into words.”The cyclists are travelling from Portlaoise RFC to Maynooth, and will finish the Irish stage of the journey at Trinity College, Dublin on Tuesday before it heads to Warrington via Colwyn Bay on Wednesday and Thursday. Why not take part, or go and cheer the team on their way? Click here for more details and to find out how to donate. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It’s not just rugby’s stars who have been touched by Darbyshire’s story, and members of the hurling, football and cycling communities from all the provinces have clubbed together to lend their support.O’Callaghan continued: “When it comes to sport some things are put into perspective and the whole sporting community comes together, which is only right. This crosses over both codes because Darbs has some massive friends in Warrington, and for both codes to come together is a great idea.last_img read more

‘Relentless’ Saracens through to another Champions Cup final

first_img TAGS: MunsterSaracens — Murray Kinsella (@Murray_Kinsella) April 20, 2019At the heart of Saracens’ winning performance in the Midlands was academy product and England scrum-half Ben Spencer, who started ahead of the most-capped Premiership player in history, Richard Wigglesworth.“Ben’s had a great season this year, he’s started probably more European Cup games this year than any other season,” McCall said. “Obviously we have two great scrum-halves in Wiggy as well.Space invader: Ben Spencer breaks from Jean Kleyn (Getty Images)“He’s (Wigglesworth) had a tough time with an injury, he’s done one training session in the last eight weeks I think it is, one rugby session. So it’s good to have him back today and have his experience on the bench.“But Ben is playing really well, he had a great game against Glasgow in the quarter-final, and equally he played really well today.”After finishing just three points ahead of Munster at half-time, Saracens got off to a fast start in the second half, with blindside flanker Michael Rhodes touching down for the first try in the 44th minute. That score, and three subsequent penalties from Owen Farrell, turned the screw on Johann van Graan’s men.Over time: Darren Sweetnam scores Munster’s only try (Getty Images)Munster captain Peter O’Mahony said: “We played rugby in areas we probably didn’t plan in doing so as a result of being down by that much.“With their defence, the way they go after teams, particularly in their own half, it makes it that little bit more difficult when you are trying things that if we were closer or ahead we probably wouldn’t be doing. When you make mistakes in that area or concede penalties, you’re conceding three points.”Munster’s thoughts now turn to focus purely on domestic action in the Guinness Pro14 while Saracens are still competing on two fronts. Ali Stokes reports on how Saracens saw off Munster to reach European finale in Newcastle Billy Vunipola was confronted by a Munster fan on the pitch after the game.Roundly booed by Munster fans throughout the game. ‘Relentless’ Saracens through to another Champions Cup final Under the scorching sun of an early summer day in the Midlands and in the wake of a difficult week following the uproar caused by Billy Vunipola’s Instagram post defending the comments of Israel Folau, Saracens qualified for a fourth European Champions Cup final in six years by beating Munster 32-16 at the Ricoh Arena.Following the now familiar sight of yet another classic Saracens victory in the knockout stages of Europe, Mark McCall was quick to praise the intensity and mentality of his charges.“I thought we played really well,” said the Sarries director of rugby. “Although the scoreboard said 12-9 at half-time, it didn’t feel like that. The thing that pleased me most was that the players understood that the scoreboard did not necessarily reflect how well we had played and what we were building towards.“I was just really pleased with our intensity, which was relentless the whole game, and the control we had emotionally as well.”Power surge: Billy Vunipola tries to make ground against Munster (Getty Images)Any suggestion of Vunipola feeling the pressure was quickly dispelled. The England No 8 was at the forefront of Saracens’ trademark power game, claiming the final try of the day in the 72nd minute and being named Man of the Match.McCall said: “Billy was outstanding, so were all of his team-mates to be honest. We got all the big parts of our game right today and a great team effort.“As a group we were determined not to let this week pass us by because we work incredibly hard to be involved in weeks like this one, games like this one. And we ended up having a brilliant week and you can see that in the performance.”Commenting on the social media post that led to Vunipola being booed throughout the match and being confronted by a Munster fan afterwards, McCall said: “The club dealt with it, it’s been dealt with, it was dealt with decisively, it was dealt with quickly and it was dealt with, in my opinion, fairly.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Happy day: Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell celebrates beating Munster (Getty Images) Who they will play in Champions Cup final at St James’ Park on 11 May will be decided later today, when reigning champions Leinster host resurgent French giants Toulouse.

Personalize your stream and start following your favorite authors, offices and users.Go to my stream Year:  “COPY”center_img Projects Photographs:  Willem RethmeierText description provided by the architects. The conceptual framework for this house was one of ‘house as landscape’. We set out to design a house that would have a topography and where activities and functions were acted out on a terrain that flowed and folded and hinged the various levels and spaces of the house. The roof to the lower ground garage would be turfed and a garden would extend from children’s bedrooms ramping down to lower gardens and undercroft play areas that doubled as parking spaces. a circuit of movement was created throughout the house flowing internally and externally vertically and horizontally, providing a dynamic and fluidity to the plan. Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaLightsLonghiLamp – AkileleWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0Parallel to this was a philosophy of allowing forms to be determined by the forces of site, context, client, and authorities. An approach was set early in the design process to see what the council control plans would create if allowed. Envelope controls determined the form and outline with view corridors determining steps and cutouts in roof and wall forms. Context and heritage character statements determined finishes and detail. Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThe landscape architects and structural engineers were extremely important in the design development and resolution of the concept. Beyond this the key figures in it’s delivery was the construction team who put plenty of blood sweat and tears into the project. A marriage of builder and architect delivered a unique bespoke house to a very patient and respectful client. Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierA palette of materials was chosen that reflected the surrounding heritage context with traditional materials such as dark face brickwork, timber shakes, slate tiles and copper sheeting becoming the skins to the internal functional spaces of the new home. Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThis approach has also provided a public and cultural benefit that enriches the streetscape and surrounds. The final building by it’s response to site and context has created a better amenity to the neighbours providing light and views and greater sense of space than they previously enjoyed with the previous building on the site. Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierThe house is for a family of 4 with many visitors from overseas resulting in a need for guests quarters. Off street and concealed parking was required, a capacity to remove and store shoes at the entry point, with a simple and direct connection to the living and sleeping areas. The rooms and study areas for the children was very important as well as a ballet practice area. a piano room was also an important part of the clients needs. Further to this they loved to entertain and the central space of congregation needed to be a special place, height and volume and a sense of spaciousness was desired. Save this picture!© Willem RethmeierSustainability and cost effectiveness are integral and fundamental to the design. Passive solar esd principles are employed as well as water harvesting solar pool heating and hydronic floor heating with good ventilation. Close involvement of all parties progressively throughout the construction maintained an efficient flow of process and a cost effective result.

The Divine House is located along the McKenzie River outside of Eugene, Oregon. Approximately 50 feet above the water level, the structure is sited on the northern, upper end of a sloping lot overlooking a dramatic bend in the river. The house has a simple rectangular footprint and a gable roof with deep overhangs. It is directly organized down the centerline of the plan below the ridge. The northern half contains the smaller, more cellular programs— the carport, the entry, the guest area, the bathroom, and the primary bedroom. The southern half is entirely open and includes the living and dining areas, the kitchen, and an adjoining covered deck. The width of the rooms and the generous depth of the overhangs was based on the maximum length of local Douglas fir structural members.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe spaces of the house are defined using a series of ‘solid’ volumes, which allow for multiple routes and notably free movement throughout the interior. Contained within this highly articulated poché are storage areas for clothing and household items, mechanical spaces, as well as the laundry area and bath. The positioning of these volumes reinforces the organization of the house along the ridgeline and establishes the distinct spatial character of the two halves of the plan.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannSave this picture!PlanSightlines were developed to provide a range of views within and through the house and give an immediacy to the grounds and the river without undercutting desired privacy (to the extent that the interior doors are largely rendered redundant). Conceived as part of the main living room, an expansive hardwood deck extends out towards the river and will weather to a silver-grey. The deck, which covers the same area as the interior of the house, works in tandem with the interior volumes to expand the field. The material palate and methods of construction are direct and robust.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe most prominent feature—the roof— is raw corrugated aluminum which will oxidize and dull in appearance over time. It uses a concealed clip system installed over a grid of battens and counter battens, the latter of which also function as outriggers on the gable ends. The siding is 5” wide clear cedar planks, finished in black pine tar. They are furnished in full lengths and key precisely into the building geometry. Similar to the roof, the wall detail employs a fully vented assembly of battens and counter battens.Save this picture!AxoSave this picture!AxoThe interior also is constructed in a similar fashion and given a similar finished expression— in this case, 5” wide plain sawn white oak boards, fully coordinated with the geometry throughout. The articulation (rather than the coloration) unifies the inside and the outside and de-emphasizes the applied nature of the finished surfaces. The interior ceilings are installed over a lowered array of joists in order to lend more intimacy to the spaces and conceal the beams below the roof ridge and at the headered openings along the North and South facades.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe effect of suppressing the principal structure through this fur down focuses the view out towards the landscape and, in concert with the storage volumes, lends the interior a strong sculptural quality, all enveloped in a single material. A hard wax oil was selected for the finish to maintain the raw appearance of the white oak.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannProject gallerySee allShow lessEast Fremantle House / Nic BrunsdonSelected ProjectsValladolid Space Agora / Pablo Moreno Mansilla + Julián Zapata JiménezSelected Projects Share Year:  Houses Photographs:  Jeremy Bittermann Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Area:  3000 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2021last_img read more

Michigan corporations get billions in tax credits while masses suffer

first_imgDetroit —  The capitalists and their servants have no shame when it comes to taking from the poorest and giving to the rich.Michigan has been devastated for decades by factory closings, massive unemployment and ever-deepening poverty. Like in other states and nationally, the economic crisis of 2008 and the ensuing years was used as the pretense at all levels for increasing cuts to remaining social services while bailing out the very banks and corporations which created the capitalist economic collapse to begin with.From 2000 to 2010, Michigan suffered its greatest job losses since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Approximately 750,000 jobs were eliminated, primarily decent-paying industrial jobs. During that same decade, because of massive unemployment and home foreclosures caused by racist, predatory loans, Detroit lost 237,000 residents. By 2009, General Motors, Chrysler and Ford — what used to be called the “Big Three” auto companies — eliminated 112,000 jobs in the state, or a whopping 52 percent of their Michigan workforce. (Report by Paul Traub, Federal Reserve Bank of Michigan, Jan. 24, 2012)Social services in Michigan were slashed to the bone as a result of the financial crisis caused by this massive job loss. Yet from 2003 to 2013, the state government diverted to state coffers $6.2 billion in funds earmarked for revenue sharing to the cities. Detroit alone was deprived of $732 million in revenue sharing funds during those years, a huge factor in precipitating Detroit’s financial crisis and ultimate bankruptcy, with the devastating reduction in pensions for Detroit retirees that ensued. (“The Great Revenue Sharing Heist,” by Anthony Minghine. Michigan Municipal League, March 2014)In addition, African-American cities like Detroit, Flint, Benton Harbor and Pontiac were placed under emergency management to facilitate attacks on workers’ pensions and basic services.The corporations that caused these job losses and cuts, however, were rewarded with massive tax breaks.How did this happen?The state of Michigan faces a budget deficit of $325 million this year, and similar deficits for years to come, as corporations have started to cash in on huge tax credits given to them by previous Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm and current Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. A tax credit is a direct reduction in a corporation’s total tax bill.Under the so-called Michigan Employment Growth Authority, corporations could claim tax credits on business taxes owed for a period of up to 20 years if they only promise to maintain 70 percent of their post-recession job levels. If a corporation was not profitable in one year, it could roll over the tax credit to the next.Tax credits under MEGA amount to $4.9 billion, with $3.3 billion left from the Granholm years and $1.6 billion in additional credits since Snyder took office in 2010. An additional $1.7 billion in tax breaks for the corporations occurred when Snyder eliminated the single business tax in 2010.With auto profits returning to huge levels — $2.8 billion for GM in 2014 (even after writing off $2.8 billion to pay for recalls), $3.2 billion for Ford and $1.2 billion for Fiat-Chrysler (even with writing off $1.2 billion for a one-time contribution to the United Auto Workers health care fund) — the auto companies are now lining up to begin cashing in their tax credits.GM, Ford and Chrysler can claim refundable tax credits totaling $4.5 billion if they retain 86,000 jobs in Michigan, or 70 percent of their current workforce, through 2032. It was reported that one “unnamed” corporation, undoubtedly one of the auto companies, has claimed $224 million in tax credits for 2014, in large part creating the state’s fiscal deficit, which is being taken out of the hides of the poor. (Detroit News, Feb. 5)General Motors and Chrysler were bailed out at a cost to taxpayers of $9.3 billion as part of federal-government-engineered bankruptcies in 2009, making it especially reprehensible that the auto companies will be cashing in on huge tax credits for years to come at the expense of desperately needed human services in Michigan.An economic system organized rationally to provide for all human needs, including jobs or income and pensions for all, is what will bring Detroit and all of Michigan bouncing back from years of capitalist crises, greed and exploitation. That system is called socialism, where the people come first and not the corporate bloodsuckers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
