Ireland’s confidence growing

first_imgIreland’s back three of Bowe, Rob Kearney and Andrew Trimble all had notable performances and the centre partnership of Gordon D’Arcy and Keith Earls worked much better. Interestingly though it was Sexton and Bowe who finished in the Centre. Could it be that Bowe at 13 has the physical attributes to counteract the battering ram that is Aurelien Rougerie?Should Donncha Ryan start v France?The scrum was an area of concern and Ireland lost a couple of line outs (one of which led to Parisse’s try) but whether concentration was better after the break or Italy tired, the scrum improved. Stephen Ferris and Paul O’Connell were both outstanding but a question mark remains over who will partner O’Connell in the second row. When called upon, Donnacha Ryan does all he can to take the starting place from Donncha O’Callaghan.Another issue for Kidney is getting the best out of Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip who have struggled to stamp their authority so far – something that will be crucial in disrupting the French and stopping their big ball carriers.Playing against Wales, errors and lack of discipline cost Ireland dearly. A “sloppy” first half against Italy could be put down to rustiness but Ireland got away with it. France is a much tougher test in which any lapses in concentration will be exploited. Scotland showed on Sunday that France do have their weaknesses but ultimately Les Bleus were able to up their game. Two-try Tommy BoweBy Claire GlancyPERFORMING under pressure. After their defeat to Wales, that’s the challenge Ireland faced before even taking to pitch against Italy. So when Sergio Parisse crossed the whitewash to level the sides late in the first half on Saturday, the pressure cooker reached boiling point. “Come the day and come the hour” Ireland’s response was critical if they were going to get their RBS 6 Nations campaign back on track.Tommy Bowe’s try in the 39th minute not only put the hosts back in front but it was the first step in rebuilding confidence in a side that has rarely reached its potential since the Grand Slam of 2009. The momentum was back in Ireland’s favour and set up an excellent second half performance which saw them score 25 unanswered points.Critics will say those points don’t carry much weight when they come against a side like Italy, who by their own admission eventually just gave up, but it’s the manner in which Ireland played and the ease with how those scores came that means they will travel to the Stade de France in a very different frame of mind to a fortnight ago.Of course, they will still be underdogs. As World Cup finalists, France started the tournament as favourites and remain unbeaten but the underdog tag sits more comfortably with Ireland so if they can continue to gather momentum then they won’t fear the French as much as before.By now Declan Kidney has had a good look at all of his players in action so it will be interesting to see if there will be any changes to the starting XV in Paris.Eoin Reddan upped the tempo v ItalyAt Lansdowne Road, the introduction of Eoin Reddan after 53 minutes ramped up the tempo. Jonathan Sexton, who was excellent at controlling play, looked more at ease with his Leinster team-mate feeding him quick ball than he had with Conor Murray’s service. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS not for featured With Wales already winning the Triple Crown, whispers of a Grand Slam have started and it will take a lot to stop them. But at least Ireland’s victory over Italy has kept alive their Championship hopes. They go to Paris more confident but seeing as they’ve only won there once since 1972, they also have to be realistic about their chances.Follow Claire Glancy on Twitter @claireglancylast_img read more

Millage rate notices coming to Orange County property owners this week

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. From the Orange County Property AppraiserOrange County property owners should watch their mailboxes this week for their annual TRIM (Truth-In-Millage) Notices. These important documents – prepared by the Office of the Orange County Property Appraiser – contain 2019 information on the value of all of Orange County’s residential and commercial properties, as well as all business accounts or Tangible Personal Property (TPP). Some 524,000 TRIM Notices are set to arrive in the mail beginning as early as Friday, August 16. Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh“This is an enormous undertaking for the OCPA team, and we take it very seriously,” said Rick Singh, CFA, Orange County’s independently elected Property Appraiser. “Our role in the taxation process is to fairly and accurately determine the market and taxable value of homes, commercial properties, and TPP accounts so that millage rates from their municipality (if located in one) and other taxing authorities can be applied to calculate the annual tax bill.” Continued Singh, “It is important to note, however, that the TRIM Notice is not the tax bill. That arrives from the Tax Collector’s Office later in the fall.” In addition to millage rates from municipalities (if applicable), properties are also subject to millage rates from other taxing authorities, such as Orange County, water management districts, state and local public schools, public libraries, and others. Upon receipt of TRIM Notices, should property owners have any questions or require further information to understand the Notice, OCPA’s award-winning Customer Service department stands ready to assist in person, over the phone, or online. In addition, OCPA will staff neighborhood satellite offices in libraries across the county from August 26-September 9.

The fire trucks and rescuers were there, and all traffic was directed into the far left lane, then we saw what had happened. There was an attorney’s law office business on the right, that had a large heavy cover over their front, and the whole entire heavy shingled cover with all the heavy posts and lumber, had collapsed, in front of their front entrance. We went on to the bakery outlet, and I told the clerk what we had seen, and she already knew, as she and other customers had discussed it, and she said there was a person in a car underneath, that apparently had crashed into it, and she said the airbags had all deployed, and that it was a small car, under the fallen cover. Wow. Glad we were not coming along there a little earlier. I have searched the local news sources, but have not seen anything about it. The law office is right near the old K-Mart location, across the road, next to a big pawn shop, and then the fire station is right next to it in there, so the fire rescuers didn’t have very far to go to the scene! I hope no one was injured.

England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland

first_imgSunday Mar 15, 2015 England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland Scotland led at halftime in the Calcutta Cup clash at Twickenham but a late try and ten points from the boot of George Ford gave England a 25-13 victory, taking them top of the Six Nations table going into a final weekend that will go right down to the wire. England’s win at home didn’t come about as easily as they would have liked, with Scotland making them work had for a victory that included two disallowed tries.Jonathan Joseph scored early on with some neat footwork but that good start was cancelled out when Scotland’s Mark Bennett scored for the visitors. Geore Ford also crossed, before Jack Nowell’s late effort proved enough for victory, and sets things up nicely for next week.With Wales’ win over Ireland, any one of the three sides can still win it in the final weekend of play. England’s advantage at the top is due to having a points difference of +37 over Ireland’s +33 and Wales’ +12. All three sides are on six points, so it’s all to play for in a week’s time.Wales take on Italy in Rome first up, then Ireland against Scotland at Murrayfield, with England hosting France in the third game of the weekend, knowing exactly what they need to achieve for overall victory. If they can do that, it will be their first Championship title since 2011.If Ireland beat Scotland and Wales notch up a big total against Italy, England will need to come up with a strong performance against a French side that will be plaing for pride, and would love nothing more than upsetting the English at Twickenham.

Vertiz 950 is a housing Project with 27 units located in avenida Dr. José María Vertiz # 950, Mexico City.  Save this picture!© Diana ArnauThe Project is located on an irregular site of 609.00 sqm. which has only a street front of 10 meters. The building has 6 floors plus 1 basement. The basement and first floor are destined for parking and lobby, and the last 5 floors are destined for housing, having 27 apartments in total.Save this picture!© Diana ArnauThe biggest challenge of the project was to make the most of the site which has terrible proportions. To achieve this, we designed 13 different typologies that adjust to the site in different ways so we could use as much as we could. The first step was to give the project a central and generous patio that could provide great lightning and ventilation to all the apartments. To reduce the horizontal circulations, we design duplex apartments which help reduce up to a 70% the space used by the hallways. Typologies vary from 62 to 114 sqm, adjusting to different markets. Penthouse apartments, although are the smallest ones, have a private roof garden which duplicate it´s surface.Save this picture!© Diana ArnauThe Project is divided in two towers connected by bridges and a shared central patio. A lobby is located on the first floor being directly communicated with the elevator. Every space in the apartments (rooms, kitchen, and bathrooms) has natural ventilation and illumination. The central patio has a 6 floor green wall giving privacy to the building as well as providing a fresh view to the apartments which are located in a central and noisy neighborhood of Mexico City. Save this picture!© Diana ArnauTo give certain privacy to the rooms of the apartments, we used a double façade made by Hunter Douglas. This façade gives great lightning to the inside and at the time it blocks the view from the outside to the inside.

May 31, 2021 Find out more Organisation December 3, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Outrage over death sentence passed on sports magazine chief editor May 26, 2021 Find out more MyanmarAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) and the Burma Media Association (BMA) today voiced outrage at the death sentences passed by a court martial on 28 November on sports journalist Zaw Thet Htwe and eight other persons for allegedly trying to kill the members of Burma’s military junta.”Your government has once again shown its criminal attitude towards journalists who refuse to comply with orders,” the two organisations said in a joint letter to the prime minister, Gen. Khin Nyunt. “We challenge you to provide the evidence of this journalist’s implication in a coup attempt,” the letter added.The editor of the sports magazine First Eleven, Zaw Thet Htwe and the other eight were convicted and sentenced to death by a Rangoon court martial under article 122/1 of the law on high treason for supposedly trying to murder the leaders of the SPDC (the ruling junta). The others are Aye Myint (a lawyer), Zaw Zaw, Zar Naing Htun, Ne Win, Shwe Mann, Than Htun, Myo Htway and Nai Min Kyi. The last public execution was held in Burma in 1988, the magazine Irrawaddy said.All nine were arrested on 17 July 2003 by members of Military Intelligence (MI). Zaw Thet Htwe was arrested at the First Eleven office in Rangoon. Four other journalists working for the magazine were also detained for several days.A member of the military junta, Col. San Pwint, announced on 26 July that the security services had thwarted a planned series of bombings in which 12 suspects were implicated, including Zaw Thet Htwe. They were also accused of contacts with political organisations in exile.A former political prisoner, Zaw Thet Htwe already served a four-year prison sentence in the early 1990s for his activities as a member of the Democratic Party for a New Society (DPNS), and he was reportedly tortured during interrogation.His arrest in July is thought to have been prompted by a report in First Eleven raising questions about the use of an international donation of four million dollars to promote football in Burma. The country’s most widely-read sports magazine, with a circulation of 50,000, First Eleven shortly thereafter carried a report about a fine imposed by the organisers of an Asian football tournament (the Asian Champion Club) on a Burmese team that failed to take part.On 24 July, the military junta denied the claims of Reporters Without Borders and the BMA that Zaw Thet Htwe’s arrest was linked to his work as a journalist.Sign the petition to go further Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture May 12, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylumlast_img read more

Maine shifts some vaccine doses away from CVS and Walgreens

first_imgOleksii Liskonih/iStockBy ERIN SCHUMAKER, ABC News(AUGUSTA) — As frustration mounts over slow COVID-19 vaccine rollouts at CVS and Walgreens around the country, Maine has been shifting supplies away from chain pharmacies to independent ones.This week, the state transferred 975 doses from Walgreens to an independent pharmacy and next week it plans to transfer 500 doses away from CVS, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention.“The decision was driven by the principles of velocity and equity, which are foundations of Maine’s vaccination plan,” Robert Long, a Maine CDC spokesperson, told ABC News in a statement. “The doses had not been committed to scheduled clinics, so the Maine Immunization Program redirected them to vaccination sites that had ready and immediate needs.”This week, Maine didn’t send any of the doses it received from the federal government to CVS or Walgreens.But according to Long, the decision to pause the retail pharmacy program isn’t a policy shift. Instead, he said, it reflects the fact that CVS and Walgreens already had enough doses to fulfill their commitments for the week.“This is not an issue of pace,” a CVS spokesperson told ABC News. “The 500 doses noted are being moved because the operator of 14 long-term care facilities — Shalom House in Portland — wanted to move to Bedard Pharmacy, with whom they have an existing relationship.”“There are several factors that may leave us with more doses than initially planned,” a Walgreens spokesperson told ABC News. “For example, the patient population at a long-term care facility has shifted, patients or staff elect not to get the vaccine, or a facility overestimated doses needed.”“We are not messing around with this,” Dr. Nirav Shah, director of the Maine CDC, said during a news conference last week. “We’ve got doses waiting to be administered and people waiting to receive them. If we see a mismatch there, we are going to continue moving things around in that fashion.”It remains to be seen if Maine will follow in the footsteps of West Virginia, which was lauded for a successful vaccine rollout that relied on partnering with independent pharmacies instead of chains.As of Jan. 21, West Virginia had vaccinated 9,349 out of every 100,000 residents, among the best per capita rates in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By comparison, Maine’s per capita vaccination rate was 5,989 vaccines administered for every 100,000 people.And while the Maine CDC said that West Virginia’s success with independent pharmacies had no influence on Maine’s decision to reallocate doses, the two states do have some key similarities.While slightly more than half of pharmacies in Maine are chains, compared to 41% of pharmacies in West Virginia, both states have a dearth of chains in rural neighborhoods, according to an ABC News analysis of SafeGraph data. In Maine, there are only six chain pharmacies per 100,000 people in rural areas. Rural neighborhoods in West Virginia have roughly eight chain pharmacies per 100,000 people.John Beckner, senior director of strategic initiatives at the National Community Pharmacists Association, which represents independent pharmacies, said that independent pharmacies had wanted to be involved in the initial vaccine distribution effort.“We had numerous meetings and calls with CDC and HHS. We lobbied,” he said. “By and large, states have elected to use CVS and Walgreens. In some cases that worked OK. In other cases, there were a lot of bumps in the road.”And despite the perception that independent pharmacies aren’t as well equipped as the big chains to handle vaccinations, Beckner, a pharmacist by training, stressed that independent pharmacists often have decades of experience immunizing patients. There’s also the relationship factor: In addition to existing partnerships with nursing homes, in rural communities without a doctor, local pharmacist sometimes double as primary care.While tricky requirements for storing the Pfizer vaccine make the Moderna a more realistic option for pharmacies “the main challenge for our members has been access to the vaccine,” Beckner said.More states are reaching out to independent pharmacies, according to Beckner, and with the prospect of additional vaccines like Johnson & Johnson’s in the pipeline, Beckner is hopeful that independents will have a bigger role to play when vaccinations of the general public start.“What we’ve seen in West Virginia is best practice, quite frankly,” he said. “Other states have really taken notice.”ABC News’ Mark Nichols contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

BREAKING: LSL reveals ongoing pain of its branch closure programme

first_imgEstate agency giant LSL has revealed the considerable financial carnage wreaked by its decision to close so many Your Move and Reeds Rains branches earlier this year.The company has revealed this morning that revenues at its estate agency business have dropped by 16% so far since its radical closure programme was announced in February, and by a fifth over the past four months.This has dragged its overall group revenue down by 3% since then despite a perky performance by its financial services arm where turnover increased by 1% and very strong results at its surveying arm, where they leapt by 29%.120 branchesThe company is keen to point out how it might have fared if it had not closed, sold off or amalgamated over 120 branches.LSL says is overall revenues would have increased by 5% without the restructure, and that estate agency revenue would have shrunk by only 5%, to be expected given the ongoing economic and political climate.“LSL has delivered a creditable performance in the 10 months to 31st October 2019,” says CEO Ian Crabb.“This performance has been delivered during a period when market activity levels have remained subdued given the continued uncertainty over the UK and global political and economic environment.“LSL’s performance illustrates the benefits of the Group’s diversified strategy and the self-help initiatives being taken to respond to current market conditions.“Until we have greater clarity on the political backdrop, we remain cautious on the market outlook for 2020 and we will continue to monitor market conditions closely.” ian crabb LSL Reed Rains Your Move December 2, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
