Saint-André experiments continue for France

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Against Canada it shouldn’t be a massive issue, particularly with Rémy Grosso switching wings to cope with the in-form DTH van der Merwe, but it seems unlikely that Dulin will really be able to do enough to show he is a credible wing option.The other change Saint-André appears to be considering is using le Roux at lock. He started there against Romania, and impressed with his huge work rate and strong defensive effort.Changing places: Morgan Parra was used as a No 10 in the World Cup finalIt’s not clear whether his lack of bulk made an impact in the scrum, which was less dominant than usual, but given the lack of second row options on the bench for France, PSA clearly plans to use him in that position later on in the game.While Dulin is not a serious option on the wing outside an injury crisis, there is a very good chance that le Roux will be France’s back-up lock for the clash against Ireland as well as a potential quarter-final, overtaking Alexandre Flanquart because of his versatility. We’re well into the World Cup but still Philippe Saint-André keeps experimenting with his French team ahead of their clash with Canada on Thursday. Decent shift: Bernard Le Roux is pushing for a starting spot center_img Philippe Saint-André asked to be judged on the World Cup but after four years of experimenting, he’s still trying out new things with the competition in full flow.Playing players out of position is nothing new for PSA, who has already seen Sébastien Vahaamahina at blindside and Félix le Bourhis on the wing fail miserably, while Wesley Fofana shifted out wide was also a waste of his talents.Out of position: Wesley Fofana has been tried on the wing by Saint-AndréDuring a World Cup there has to be some scope for versatile players, with a limited squad, but still Saint-André is testing out new combinations, with Brice Dulin on the wing for only the second time, while Bernard le Roux appears to be a full-time option in the second row, as well as pushing for a place on the flank.Against Canada Dulin will start on the left wing, a position where he struggled desperately against England in France’s first World Cup warm-up, being made to look foolish by Anthony Watson for the first English try.He won’t be the last player to be stood up by Watson, but it was clear that Dulin, a very capable full-back, was not comfortable out of position.Problems: Brice Dulin struggles to contain Anthony WatsonHaving lost his starting spot to Scott Spedding, whose powerful boot makes him an invaluable asset given the lack of kicking options in the French midfield, Dulin needs to prove he can play in more than one position if he is to play a role in the big games for les Bleus.As a counter-attacker he is probably France’s greatest threat, but defensively his positioning is an issue, while he is less of a threat out wide than popping up in the line in midfield. Of course four years ago France went into a World Cup final with a scrum-half, Morgan Parra, playing ten. Saint-André hopes that a similar experiment will take les Bleus back to the big game.France: Scott Spedding, Rémy Grosso, Mathieu Bastareaud, Wesley Fofana, Brice Dulin, Frédéric Michalak, Sebastien Tillous-Borde, Eddy Ben Arous, Guilhem Guirado, Rabah Slimani, Pascal Pape, Yoann Maestri, Thierry Dusautoir (c), Bernard le Roux, Damien Chouly.Replacements: Benjamin Kayser, Vincent Debaty, Nicolas Mas, Yannick Nyanga, Fulgence Ouedraogo, Morgan Parra, Remi Tales, Alexandre Dumoulin.last_img read more

This renovation to a 100 year old Victorian cottage is located in the inner-city Melbourne suburb of Brunswick, Australia. The context is unique in its proximity to an historic brickworks factory that contains striking brick chimneys that form a backdrop to this urban site. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe main body of the house is based on a double-height window form facing north that is angled and narrows at the top – paying subtle homage to the chimney archetype. The intention is to both frame views of the chimneys, and also to draw north light into a void space and into the centre of the building. The window form is framed externally by an elegant, exposed steel portal frame – a crisp, white ‘stencil’ that is then extruded three dimensionally and wrapped by standing seam metal cladding.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe feature window is replicated three times back into the house – first in the adjacent void space, and then again in an external bedroom window to the south. The window forms diminish in scale each time allowing the presence of the chimneys to be brought into perspective through the depth of the house. The double-height window form in the living space is lined with spotted gum timber, and both internally and externally incorporates a timber window seat. Outside a place is created to sit and enjoy the garden and distant views of the historical chimneys. Inside, a place is created to sit and appreciate the double-height space and abundant natural light.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathA departure from the existing one storey house was required to accommodate an expanding family. A new black, glazed staircase form marks the transition from old to new and sweeps one up to an upstairs living space, bedrooms and bathroom – all designed with the requirements of the owners’ children in mind. The elevated architectural form aligns itself with an adjacent bluestone laneway and in its clever detail of pivoting timber screens & timber fins blurs the line between private and public.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe living space is again extruded in form; it is a stretched series of windows and timber joinery that transitions from low credenza joinery to upholstered seat. The space hovers above the laneway – with louvered windows forming book ends that capture both near and distant laneway views. The external pivoting timber screens and textured green glass between timber fins moderate views and light. The overall result is one of finely crafted timber joinery that can be experienced both outside the building and from within. It is more than interior joinery – it is a ‘double-sided façade’ embracing the public laneway and providing an intriguing, private living space. The outcome could be described as a piece of ‘urban joinery’.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe renovation was designed with the intent to bring several elements into perspective; changing family needs and to celebrate a uniquely Brunswick context. Architectural forms connect with context externally and also between internal spaces. Windows vary in shape, size and opening mechanism depending on orientation and adjacencies. It is all about connection; this also extends to other detail such as contemporary accents of coloured, textured glass that are in homage to traditional stained glass windows found in Victorian cottages. Save this picture!Section AAThe three-dimensional forms of the building are strong and sculptural whilst also showcasing Australian timbers, an expressed steel portal frame and standing seam metal cladding. The architectural outcome fulfils the clients’ brief to connect with context – cherished views become an integral part of their daily living experiences.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessContemplation House / Virginia Kerridge ArchitectSelected ProjectsPachacamac House / del Solar arquitectosSelected Projects Share Photographs Projects CopyHouses, Renovation•Brunswick, Australiacenter_img Jonicha Consulting Pty Ltd Photographs:  Shannon McGrath, Michael Kai Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Australia Structural Engineer: 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/961883/urban-joinery-house-lisa-cummins-architect Clipboard Construction: “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLisa Cummins ArchitectOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBrunswickOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on May 20, 2021Cite: “Urban Joinery House / Lisa Cummins Architect” 20 May 2021.

Editor and office manager of Myanmar Nation charged under press law

first_img News RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Receive email alerts May 26, 2021 Find out more May 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association voiced concern about the transfer to the notorious Insein prison of the editor of Myanmar Nation, Thet Zin, and office manager U Sein Win Maung, both arrested on 15 February at the offices of the weekly, since closed by police.Their trial was due to start today but it was not known whether it would be held at the police station in Thingayun, Rangoon, or before a special court inside Insein jail. They were moved to Insein on 25 February.Charged under the Printers and Publishers Registration Act, the two face seven years in prison if convicted. They are accused of possessing documents relating to human rights in Burma and the “Saffron Revolution”, which were seized during a search of the offices.Thet Zin has reportedly told his wife, Khin Swe Myint, that he is still in good physical and psychological health, but he considered it pointless to hire a lawyer to defend them because they had no chance of winning. The entire staff of Myanmar Nation is now unemployed since the authorities closed the paper.The 1962 Printers and Publishers Registration Act was inherited from the socialist dictatorship of General Ne Win and has become the main instrument of censorship used by the military junta. All publications (books, newspapers, poetry collections etc.) have to be checked by military censorship which has the power to ban any publication carrying news harmful to state ideology, national solidarity or public order. Jail sentences can be imposed of up to seven years and the equivalent of a 5,000-euros fine. May 31, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Myanmar ———————————————————–18.02.2008 – Police raid weekly Myanmar Nation, close it down and arrest editor and managerReporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association condemn the arrest of Myanmar Nation editor, Thet Zin, and his office manager, U Sein Win Maung, on the evening of 15 February in Rangoon. Police detained them during a raid on the weekly, which they closed down after finding documents. Thet Zin, 41, has heart and lung ailments.”The military junta’s promises of a democratic transition must not divert attention from the continuing crackdown on journalists and government opponents”, the two organisations said. “These latest arrests of two people in charge of a privately-owned newspaper, without any justification being offered, are evidence of the junta’s desire to keep the news under complete control and to instill fear in journalists”.The two organisations added: “We appeal to UN mediator Ibrahim Gambari to condemn the arrest of these two Myanmar Nation journalists, which could be linked to the presence in the newspaper’s offices of a copy of a report by his UN colleague, Special Rapporteur for Human Rights Paulo Sergio Pinheiro”.Thet Zin and U Sein Win Maung were arrested when police and intelligence officers carried out a four-hour search of the offices of the Myanmar Nation and confiscated many documents, including a copy of Pinheiro’s report, videos of last October’s anti-government street protests, and poems. The two journalists were taken to the headquarters of the interior ministry.”I don’t know why they were arrested and I am very worried”, said Thet Zin’s wife, Khin Swe Myint, a former political prisoner. She was able to see her husband on 18 February. He reportedly told her that he will be transferred to Insein prison on 19 February and that he will face a possible 10-year prison sentence although he does not know what he is charged with.The police searched the premises of the Myanmar Nation again on 18 February, confiscating more documents. The offices continue to be closed by the police, who have said the arrests of the two journalists are linked to their activities.Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association call on the authorities to provide information on the situation of the following journalists and writers, who were arrested in recent months : Nobel Aye, a journalist with Reader’s World Journal who was arrested in August 2007 ; Lay Lay Mon, a writer with Teen Magazine ; Min Han, a poet held since 2 January in Insein prison ; Nay Htet Naing, a poet held since 2 January in Insein prison ; and Ko Ko Maung, a poet also known as Zaw Lu Sein.
