first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Kieran Crowley during his Benetton reign (Getty Images) Crowley’s arrival follows the election of ex-Italy player Marzio Innocenti as FIR president.Innocenti said: “Kieran and I met in 1987 when we were playing at the first Rugby World Cup when Italy played New Zealand in the opening game. That day he didn’t come on against us, but it was destiny that his path would cross with Italy again, nearly 40 years later.“We’ve a lot of faith in him as a coach, and hold him in high esteem as a man, two key aspects to bring the national team back to the levels that our supporters and partners expect.” Kieran Crowley was today named as the head coach of Italy, taking over from Franco Smith – the South African will move into a new role as Italy’s head of high performance, overseeing rugby at every level.Crowley has been entrusted with leading Italy to the next Rugby World Cup and will be tasked with improving Italy’s dismal record in the Six Nations, with the Azzurri on a 32-match losing streak in the competition.The Kiwi, who won the Rugby World Cup with New Zealand as a player, has been in charge of Benetton Treviso since 2016, taking them to a first-ever Pro14 play-off appearance in that time, in 2019. His time with the club followed eight years as the head coach of the Canada men’s national team.The experienced coach will also take charge of Italy’s attack. Zebre’s Andrea Moretti will serve as his forwards coach, with defence coach Marius Goosen, Corrado Pilat and Giovanni Sanguin all in harness.Of the appointment Crowley said: “I’m honoured that the FIR have given me the opportunity to lead Italy to the next World Cup. In the five years with Benetton Rugby I’ve been able to learn and understand the country and its rugby culture, an understanding which I cannot wait to develop as head coach of the national team.“We have a talented young generation who have recently had their chance at international level and in the Pro14. Along with the more experienced members of the squad with whom we will work, they have all the quality necessary to form the spine of the Italy team for the next cycle.”center_img The Kiwi replaces Franco Smith, who becomes head of high performance Can’t get to the shops?

Jodie’s House on Sydney Harbour is situated on a dramatic steeply sloping site with north-easterly views over the beach and the water beyond. The topography resulted in the building being articulated as a series of pavilions. Intricately linked they cascade from the top of the site towards the shore. Connections between these levels are both complex and subtle, giving both a sense of journey and discovery as you move throughout the house.Save this picture!© Greg HaremzaThe topography of the site also inspired the materiality of the house itself, with cutaways revealing walls of hewn sandstone, contrasting with near-white off-form concrete. Additional contrast and warmth is introduced through the recycled spotted gum ceilings and flooring and reddish brown tones of the copper roofing, which in time will mature to a rich blue-green.Save this picture!Plan 2As you look down from the upper pavilions towards the beach the roofscape of the lower pavillions becomes a part of the view. These surfaces have been treated as a sculpture, the delicate copper has been twisted into upturned planes acting as roof lights and clerestory windows to the lower levels. With this continuous band of higher level windows the home’s light and ventilation needs are well provided for, while not compromising visual privacy from the adjacent neighbours.Save this picture!© Stuart ScottOn the street, the house is both modest and generous. Entry is via an elevated bridge that opens onto a north facing viewing platform which presents the beach and bushland beyond. A winding generously-proportioned stair descends to the principal living and gathering area of the house. The family living spaces are focused around both a north facing deck and a protected southern courtyard. The deck and courtyard provide light, ventilation and views through the interior spaces and foster seamless transitions from inside to out.Save this picture!© Stuart ScottThe master bedroom suite is accessible only via a hidden stair from the private study area. Secreted away on the uppermost level, it offers a sense of escape and retreat. On the lowest level, three bedrooms provide ample space for the couple’s triplet children, as well as a media room and children’s study area, which opens onto the back garden.Save this picture!© Greg HaremzaThese interconnected pavilions give privacy to the large family. While the open kitchen, dining and living area provide a large gathering space that serves as a focal point for the family to come together. The stepped and staggered design is articulated as a series of courtyard voids, allowing for light and views to penetrate into every space, as well as provide protected spaces from the hot north-easterly summer winds.Save this picture!© Stuart ScottThe house was designed for a large family, and has achieved a character that is calm and refined, with robust and beautiful natural materials that give a timeless quality.Save this picture!© Greg HaremzaProject gallerySee allShow lessTerrace House Renovation / O2 Design AtelierSelected ProjectsFinalists Announced for 2014/2015 MCHAP.emerge AwardsArchitecture News Share Architects: Casey Brown Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Girdler Constructions, Trent Girdler “COPY” Australialast_img read more

first_img June 7, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Virginia police chief defends brutal arrest of journalist covering a parade On Monday, October 31, Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler held a press conference defending his officers’ use of force against a journalist arrested the weekend before. News website Shareblue announced that their reporter, Mike Stark, was arrested on October 28 after filming Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie’s campaign vehicle at a parade in Annandale, Virginia. According to videos taken by eyewitnesses, police officers ordered him to cease filming the video, which Stark refused to do. The officers told Stark he would not be able to ask the candidate any questions. After a brief verbal exchange, five officers slammed Stark face-first on the ground, applied pressure, and charged him with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. During the press conference, police chief Roessler defended his officers’ actions, stating that Stark’s use of profanity is what led the officers to arrest him, citing a county ordinance. Roessler also stated that his officers had “reasonable fear” that Stark could harm them or others. Stark was released on bail and currently awaits trial. Arrests and physical assaults against journalists are currently on the rise in the US. One of the main contributing factors to this development is the White House’s hostile anti-press rhetoric. Trump criticizes press coverage of Russia investigation coverage On Tuesday, October 31, President Trump tweeted his thoughts on the ongoing Russia investigation, claiming that “fake news” aimed to deceive the American public. Trump’s campaign has been implicated in Special counsel Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion with the Russian government to influence the 2016 US election. On Monday, October 30, three former Trump campaign officials were indicted on numerous charges, which included conspiracy against the United States, money laundering, and failure to register as a foreign agent. President Trump and the White House have maintained their innocence in allegations of collusion, and instead have accused former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of collusion with Russian operatives.Reporters denied access to Capitol Hill after protest Journalists’ access to the US Capitol was restricted on Tuesday, October 31, in response to events regarding the media and protesters. The week prior, a protester disguised as a reporter snuck into the press pen and threw Russian flags at President Trump as he was walking to a Senate GOP policy lunch. The following week, reporters were denied access to the second floor of the Senate building where Vice President Mike Pence was attending a Senate Republicans policy lunch. Journalists were repeatedly asked to show credentials and passes, and barricaded by Capitol Police while Pence exited the room. Reporters expressed concerns that the new regulations would make it impossible for them to properly do their job covering Congress. Capitol Police claimed that they were only enforcing existing rules on access in the Capitol and that no new rules have been indicated. Press Secretary Sanders accuses news outlets of fueling “racially charged” narrativeDuring the White House press briefing on Tuesday October 31, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the media of creating the narrative that the White House is “racially charged and divided” following questions surrounding Chief of Staff General John Kelly’s comments on the Civil War. General Kelly made the comments during an interview the day before with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, saying “…the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War.” This statement was widely criticized by historians and academics, who almost universally stated that the cause of the Civil War was slavery. When members of the Press Corps asked Press Secretary Sanders if the White House could acknowledge that General Kelly’s comments were historically inaccurate and offensive, she deflected, saying:“…the media continues to want to make this and push that this is some sort of a racially charged and divided White House…and I think it is absurd and disgraceful to keep trying to make comments and take them out of context to mean something they simply don’t.” Fox News threatened with a “cease and desist” letter after reporting on executive On Monday, October 30, Fox News host and political commentator Tucker Carlson began his show by reading a “cease and desist” letter from a lawyer representing Tony Podesta, who threatened him with legal action for a story linking the Podesta Group lobbying firm to Russian collusion. Carlson’s show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” had been covering events surrounding the Mueller investigation into former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Reports have emerged that the Podesta Group is one of two unidentified companies affiliated with the indictment of Manafort. Tony Podesta resigned as head of the Podesta Group on October 30, claiming media coverage of the alleged connection made it “hard” to carry on. Carlson has continued covering the investigation, despite threats from Podesta’s lawyer demanding that he stop his “false” coverage.Country Music Association restricts topics journalists can cover during annual awardsOn Thursday, November 2, the Country Music Association sent out media guidelines in the lead up to their annual award show. The move was reminiscent of the White House’s frequent attempts to control press coverage in criticizing certain topics media outlets cover. In the memo the CMA stated “It’s vital, more so this year than in year’s past due to the sensitivities at hand, that the CMA Awards be a celebration of Country Music and the artists that make this genre so great” and warned journalists that their press credentials would be revoked if they brought up issues such as gun control, politics, and the shooting in Las Vegas. These restrictions came in the wake of the recent mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, where 58 people were killed and over 500 were injured. While the CMA maintained that these restrictions were to ensure all guests are comfortable with the press, journalists worried that they would prevent them from engaging musicians in the national conversation on the recently politicized nature of country music. Following condemnation from several CMA nominees, the organization issued a statement of apology on November 3, and retracted their media guidelines.
