Buck Shelford tribute

first_imgTuesday Jun 26, 2007 Buck Shelford tribute Wayne ‘Buck’ Shelford was one of the greatest No.8’s and hardest men to ever play rugby. A truly great All Black and formidible presence during one of the stellar periods of All Black rugby.If ever there was one moment when New Zealands Shelford embedded his name forever into rugby’s rich history, it was during the infamous Battle of Nantes in 1986.Playing only his second Test for the All Blacks against a physically intimidating French side, Shelford found himself at the bottom of a rather aggressive ruck on 20 minutes.An errant Les Bleus stud found its way to his groin, where it somehow managed to tear his scrotum, leaving one testicle hanging out.This alone would leave most men screaming in agony and heading for the nearest hospital. But not Shelford. He calmly instructed the physio to stitch him up.The French public were gobsmacked as an over-eager pitchside cameraman filmed the stomach-turning surgery, and even more so when Shelford returned to the field and carried on playing…“I was knocked out cold, lost a few teeth and had a few stitches down below,” Shelford later recalled. “It’s a game I still can’t remember… I don’t really want to, either.” Sadly the recent news has come through that the now 49 year old legend has been diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer which affects white blood cells. “We found out a month ago and he has five more months of treatment,” his wife Jo told the Sunday Star Times newspaper in New Zealand. “We are very positive and pleased with how the treatment is going but it has been a traumatic time for the family.”We wish him and his family all the best. Enjoy this great tribute to a true All Black legend.

By virtue of the fact that the grandmother had reached an age at which she no longer was able to take care of all household chores by herself, the decision was made to have relatives move in with her in order to provide adequate supportive assistance. Save this picture!© Ulrich KehrerAfter preliminary analyses and proposals,  tp3 architects – because of the elongated shape of the plot – suggested an additional structure or annex which met all the parameters required. On the one hand, the grandmother could thus be able to live for her remaining years in the environment she was accustomed to, while at the same time her private sphere of intimacy would be maintained.  Furthermore the concept of an annex would safeguard a life side by side in the free space area available. Save this picture!© Ulrich KehrerThe openmindedness of the client made it possible to approach the design  concept without constraints. From this, an unorthodox project concept developed, designing the annex as a one-storey building, combining the advantages of a hotel room with those of a one-family house, while all of this functioned as an independent structure.  Save this picture!© Ulrich KehrerImportant parameters for the design and shape of the ground plan were the course of the sun, the internal sequence of the rooms, and the desire for two private terraces. For these reasons, the structural shell twice changes its direction at places where these free areas are created. The angles of change of direction are by no means arbitrary, but were selected with an eye to the course of the sun, assuring maximum exposure to sunlight available. Thus the design of the ground plan mirrors the course of a day of sunlight.  Save this picture!© Ulrich KehrerThe design of the facades was conceived to the theme of “Ageing with Dignity” in mind. The wooden structure was clad with copper sheeting, which over time will acquire its typical green patina. This copper facade is combined with untreated, open wood, left to eventually turn gray, as well as areas of brushed concrete. The very purity of the materials used gives a feeling of being ageless that is appealing to our senses.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessCould an Architecture Peace Corps Be the Answer to Student Debt?Architecture NewsCourt-housing Cortinghborg Groningen / Architecten|en|enSelected Projects Share Photographs Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/442631/house-icp-architekten Clipboard Houses Area:  9250 m² Area:  9250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House ICP / architekten Architects: [tp3] architekten Area Area of this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/442631/house-icp-architekten Clipboard CopyAbout this office[tp3] architektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSt. ValentinHousesAustriaPublished on October 30, 2013Cite: “House ICP / architekten” 30 Oct 2013.

The research attempts to encourage charities to publicise the vast contribution made by people volunteering their time and skills.The survey of 156 groups found that their combined 2 million or more volunteers amounted to the equivalent of 224,000 full-time workers. The annual value of volunteers to the Samaritans alone, for example, ranged from £11m at the minimum wage of £3.70 an hour to £31m if you adopt a a more realistic market rate of £10 an hour.

Venezuela: 20 years in the gunsights of U.S. imperialism

first_imgThe U.S. and its proxies in Latin America are gearing up for possible military intervention against the Bolivarian government of Venezuela. Last February, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson toured Latin American countries, rallying support for such aggression. U.S. officials have met since then with dissident Venezuelan officers to discuss support for a coup. And President Donald Trump reportedly asked his administration to consider a U.S. intervention.What has turned this country on the northern coast of South America, which possesses the single largest oil reserves in the world, into a prime target of U.S. imperialism?Since the first victory of the late Hugo Chávez 20 years ago in Venezuela’s presidential elections and the process of the Bolivarian Revolution, Venezuela’s establishment as a sovereign state aiming to establish socialism has made it the target. The oil reserves make it a valuable target.The U.S. has continued to follow the racist and chauvinistic 1823 Monroe Doctrine, when U.S. President James Monroe declared U.S. hegemony regarding all the land, resources and people of the Western Hemisphere. While the original declaration appeared to be aimed at European colonizers, the doctrine has been applied against any attempt of the Latin American and Caribbean countries to obtain real sovereignty.When countries like Cuba — which established socialism — Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and earlier Chile have challenged U.S. control over the region simply by calling for self-determination, the U.S. has replied with economic sanctions, blockades, violent subversion and military intervention.What Washington seeks to do in Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua is parallel to similar U.S. interventionism in 2014 Ukraine, in 1970-73 against the Chilean government led by Salvador Allende and against the Muammar Qaddafi government in 2011 in Libya, which all resulted in reactionary, fascist-like regimes.Sanctions and violent subversionSince 2015, the U.S. and its European allies have placed heavy sanctions on Bolivarian Venezuelan leaders while funding and allying with opposition leaders. The Venezuelan opposition comes from the bourgeois class that is mainly of European white heritage and that is racist, sexist, and seeks to oppress and exploit Black, Indigenous and working-class Venezuelans.In 2015, the opposition in Venezuela adopted a new tactic to undermine the Bolivarian government by creating violence and fear against Chavistas. These rightists fabricated a narrative of humanitarian crisis in Venezuela that ultimately put the onus for all problems on Nicolás Maduro and the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) that governed the country.Members of the opposition group Vente Venezuela, who the U.S. calls freedom fighters, shot and killed civilians. This opposition set on fire and killed Orlando Figuera, a 17-year-old Afro-Venezuelan, for being a supporter of the Bolivarian Revolution. In 2017, the opposition set 40 tons of subsidized food on fire while at the same time claiming Venezuelans are dying of starvation through the fault of the government. Opposition leader Julio Borges has called for banks to freeze the accounts of Venezuelan leaders.In New York City on Sept. 27, Jorge Arreaza, the minister of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela, told supporters of the Bolivarian Revolution that sanctions the U.S. placed on members of the Venezuelan government ultimately prevent money from going to the state, which would then use the funds for the people.Arreaza explained that Venezuela will send oil to European countries and when these countries try to pay for the oil, because of these sanctions, the bank holds the money. According to the Venezuela Analysis, Trump’s sanctions against the country have cost the Bolivarian Republic $6 billion. This one example can show how sanctions are causing economic crisis, not the Bolivarian system.Last May 20, Nicolás Maduro was re- elected president of Venezuela with 68 percent of the vote. International observers and the Venezuelan National Electoral Commision confirmed the transparency of the election. Venezuela uses voting machines which are 100 percent auditable at each stage, unlike machines used in the U.S.The Venezuelan opposition had publicly boycotted the elections despite Maduro urging them to participate and even agreeing to give the opposition an extra month to campaign. Despite this clear victory with no basis for claiming the election was questionable, the U.S. government placed additional sanctions on Maduro.To counter the U.S.’s sanctions and their damage to the Venezuelan currency, the Bolívar Fuerte, the Maduro administration announced a series of economic reforms. The reforms included establishing a new currency called the Bolívar Soberano, which has five zeros less than the Bolívar Fuerte (1 Soberano = 10,000 Fuerte) and would be backed by Venezuela’s oil reserves.President Maduro announced these reforms on July 25. Less than two weeks later, an attempt was made on Maduro’s life.Assassination attemptOn Aug. 5, during an event commemorating the Bolivarian National Guard Forces, two small drones flew maliciously above while Maduro was speaking. Suddenly, one of the drones spun out of control and hit the side of a building while the other exploded midair and injured several people, including Venezuelan soldiers.This failed drone attack was a clear attempt to kill Maduro only two months after his overwhelming re-election. Venezuelan authorities have identified 43 people involved in this assassination attempt, all linked to Julio Borges, a Venezuelan opposition leader who resides in and coordinates from Bogotá in neighboring Colombia.Jorge Rodríguez, the minister for Communication and Information of Venezuela, has relayed that the Colombian government had trained the terrorist group aligned with Borges and allowed several members to cross the border into Venezuela.Continued aggressionEvery September in New York City at the United Nations headquarters, high-level delegates from all over the world attend the opening of the General Assembly. On Sept. 21, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News, “You’ll see in the coming days a series of actions that continue to increase the pressure level against the Venezuelan leadership folks.”On Sept. 25, as the debates in the U.N. began, the U.S. placed sanctions on Cilia Flores de Maduro, the president of the National Assembly and former attorney general of Venezuela, and on an additional two Venezuelan officials. Cilia Flores is also President Maduro’s spouse.Maduro made a last-minute decision to come to New York City and speak at the General Assembly. At Riverside Church in Harlem on Sept. 26, Maduro made a surprise appearance, giving a message from the Venezuelan people to counter imperialist propaganda to a crowd of over 2,000 people who had come to hear Cuban President Miguel Díaz Canel speak.The next day outside the U.N., right-wing Venezuelans protested the Maduro administration and called for military intervention in the country. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, known for her support for Israel and Saudi Arabia, not to mention the U.S. Confederacy, joined the protest. Haley reassured the “escuálidos” [the filthy, weak ones] that the Trump administration backs their agenda and will work to remove Maduro from office. Thus, Washington blatantly intervened against a sovereign nation.What this means for Latin AmericansPoverty in Venezuela has been reduced since the Bolivarian government started using revenue from the nationalized oil industry to invest in social programs, which have increased by 60 percent in the past ten years. Alliances with Cuba have made it possible for Cuban doctors, renowned for their skill and solidarity, to treat people in rural Venezuelan communities free of charge.According to Gini Coefficient, inequality in Venezuela has been reduced by 54 percent and poverty by 44 percent. In 1996, 70.8 percent of Venezuelans lived in poverty. By 2010, this figure was reduced to 21 percent. During his 13 years in office, Chávez initiated a program called “Misiones,” an anti-poverty program which benefited 20 million people. Pre-Chávez, 387,000 elderly people received retirement pensions. Now, 2.1 million of Venezuela’s 24 million people receive pensions.Additionally, UNESCO has recognized that illiteracy in the Bolivarian Republic has been eliminated. Some 72 percent of children attend public daycare while 85 percent of school-age children are in public school. Venezuela is rated number 2 among Latin American nations with students in university while being number 5 in the world, proportionately.To combat food shortages, President Maduro in early 2016 announced an initiative, Local Provision and Production Committees (CLAPS), which connects grassroot activists and the administration to provide direct food distribution and subsidies to communities which, up to the present, has been the most effective program for Venezuelans.The vast majority of Venezuelans are Mestizx, Indigenous and Black, while the opposition and the bourgeois are white, of colonial Spanish descent, whose wealth was gained through landlordship and slave labor. María Emilia Durán, an Afro-Venezuelan activist, told TeleSUR, “It’s a white, bourgeois, classist, racist and sexist elite that has no patriotism,” and that “they want a Venezuela where only they exist, not Black, Indigenous and poor people.” South America has a rich racial diversity, yet, due to colonialism, much racial discrimination and exploitation exist.While Black, Mestizx and Indigenous people make up the continent, the ruling class of most of the nations is wealthy and white. In the summer of 2017, after much outcry from Black Latinx people, multiple Latin American nations such as Peru and Mexico finally recognized “Afrolatinidad” as a category.The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela remains one of the few Latin American countries that actively works to deconstruct racism and discrimination, and celebrates the most oppressed in the country. It is this, too, that the Venezuelan opposition wants to turn back.The Bolivarian Revolution, much like the Cuban Revolution, is symbolic to the working and oppressed that it is possible for the people to win. As Jorge Arreaza said in New York City on Sept. 27, “They [the U.S.] demonize us because we are socialists.”These revolutions are integral to the Black Latin American Revolution, and it is important for those in the imperialist core to defend Bolivarian ideals from U.S. and fascist aggression.Joe Emersberger – https://venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/14073FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

These are difficult times and not the time to do business and earn profit. The medical services are the most essential services and in times like the present one, the private hospitals cannot demand lacs of rupees from a patient”, said the bench. “…few private hospitals have been authorised by the State Government to admit and treat the COVID­19 patients, but the fees are exorbitant. The fees are running in lacs of rupees and an ordinary man will never be able to afford to avail adequate treatment from a private hospital…the Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad as well as the Sardar Patel Vallabhbhai Patel Hospital, Ahmedabad is full. No beds are available as on date. In such circumstances, a COVID­19 affected person will have to reach to a private hospital”, noted the Court. The bench opined that more private hospitals are required to be accorded permission for the purpose of COVID­19 treatment and their rates should be regulated by the State Government. “This excessive charge in this critical war like situation when humanity is fighting for survival is absolutely unjustified and deserves to be deprecated. This is creating an unequal situation for the private hospitals in the city. When so many are clamouring for treatment, the exorbitant rates appear inhumane. Except for the very rich and affluent class of people, such hospitals remain out of reach for most patients. The treatment for this pandemic in this hard times even if offered by any private hospital must be reasonable and affordable”, it said. “If the private hospitals do not budge and are determined to demand exorbitant amount, then this Court will have to take appropriate legal action against such hospitals and the consequences may be quite bitter including cancellation of licence”, expressed the Court sternly. “The most grave and serious problem as on date within the State is hunger. People are without food, more particularly, the migrants, the labourers and the people hailing from the poor and downtrodden class of the society”, further observed the Court. It requested the government pleaders to take up this issue with the State authorities and see to it that even during the period of lockdown, some modalities should be worked out by virtue of which few selected and trustworthy NGOs, volunteers and charitable institutions can be asked to provide food to the poor and the needy. “Once again, we observe that this is not the time to educate the migrant workers, poor and the needy people of the concept of social distancing, etc. They will never be able to understand any such concept. They are not worried about the virus. They are worried about food. It would be very harsh to say that a person should not die because of COVID­19, but no problem if he dies because of hunger. Therefore, the entire concentration should be to provide the maximum succour and relief to the migrant labourers and the other members of the poor and downtrodden class of society and ease their pain and suffering”, urged the bench. Another thing that the bench brought to the notice of the Advocate General was the problem with regard to 200 and odd contractual employees working in the House Keeping Department of the SVP Hospital, Ahmedabad. The Court pointed out that all Gujarati News Channels had flashed that the employees of the House Keeping Department of the hospital were on the verge of going on a strike as they have not been paid their salary for the month of May 2020. “At this point of time, no employee of any hospital can go on a strike. At the same time, the employees should be paid their salaries in time”, observed the bench. Accordingly, the Court saw to it that this problem was taken care of very promptly, then and there. Moreover, the Court took cognisance of the following substantial issues, urging that the ASG take up them up with the State Government at the earliest and revert by the next date of hearing, being May 22: [1] ‘Why the State Government is not ready to ply the buses almost more than 8000 in numbers owned by the Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation?’- This issue came to be raised in the wake of the fact that only Luxury buses are being used for the purpose of transporting the migrant workers from one State to the other and also from one district to other district within the State of Gujarat. It was pointed out that a huge amount is being demanded for the purpose of purchasing ticket of a Luxury bus. [2] ‘Why the funds of RERA meant for the construction workers is not being utilised for the benefit of their well being’ [3] Why should the State Government ask any person desirous of going back to his native to pay for the ticket? Why the Government should not bear the expenses for the same? [4] Why the State authorities should not make use of the community halls, marriage halls, schools, etc, for the purpose of providing shelter to the migrant workers and other labourers and also for quarantine purpose? [5] If the migrant workers and labourers want to go back to their native places, the contractors or the employers should be asked to pay for their tickets and if the contractors decline, then the Government should bear the expenses. [6] A lot of concern was expressed on the discharge policy prevailing as on date of the CORONA virus patients. It was pointed out that while discharging the patients, no further test is being carried out. [7] The State authorities should make necessary arrangements for N­95 masks. The N­95 masks should be provided to all the health workers working in the different hospitals and should also be made available for the general public at large for their safety. [8] It is high time that the State authorities should consider to permit the hair cutting salons to be opened. [9] The services of electrician, other technicians should be made available. [10] The other issues with regard to the examination of the students of Standard 10th and Standard 12th were also raised. It was pointed out that the students are in a dilemma. The State authorities should clarify as to when it will be possible to conduct the examination. Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
