Social media reacts to the Iain Henderson try that wasn’t

first_img Social media reacts to the Iain Henderson try that wasn’tThere is always plenty of healthy debate during the Six Nations but during the Italy versus Ireland clash at the Stadio Olimpico, there was one moment that caused almost universal consternation.It didn’t matter in the end with Ireland winning 48-10 in Rome, scoring six tries. But with Ireland pounding their way towards the try-line for a first score, it looked for all the world like lock Iain Henderson had dotted down before the ball bounced away. Italy claimed the ball and managed to clear their lines. Referee Mathieu Raynal and Television Match Official Romain Poite allowed play to go on and never went back.As you can imagine, several people took to Twitter to give their view on the call (or lack of). It looked like Ireland’s lock scored against Italy but match officials didn’t give it Henderson grounds that surely#ITAvIRE #GuinnessSixNations— The 2nd Row (@the2ndRow) February 27, 2021Ireland now have their first win of the 2021 Six Nations. Italy were game, but constantly fell foul of the match officials and ended up some distance off the visitors. #ITAvIRE Henderson had control of the ball when he grounded it …Sexton dismissed by referee Mathieu Raynal like I used to be my teachers at school…..— Pirate Irwin (@pirateirwin) February 27, 2021 There’s a word I like using when faced with the kind of incompetence shown by the referees around that Henderson try.It’s boobery.A display of pure boobery.#ITAvIRE— Dan Mooney (@danielmoonbags) February 27, 2021 I whip this out every match.

A Mexican-Swiss Chalet in the Aussie Bush (The owner’s brief) Wow! But shit…what to do…? The client; a Swiss (French-speaking) ex-chef, ex-toy museum owner, collector of all things amazing and bizarre, turned artist, now heavily inspired by Mexican color, pattern, and imagery. The existing house was a dark, somewhat drab mud-brick owner-built number from the late 1970s, chock-a-block full of an extensive collection of objects, toys, and artworks. The house sits in an established garden just outside the township of Malmsbury. The site is zoned a ‘Rural Living Zone’, and is subject to a number of overlays: Environmental Significance Overlay, Erosion Management Overlay, and a Heritage Overlay. The property is also within a bushfire prone area.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!Detail Sunroom PlanSave this picture!© Ben HoskingThe owner and his partner found the whole place too dark, they needed more light to be happy in the space. They also wanted more wall space and display cabinets for his collection. A small (10m2) glazed sunroom extension was added to provide a space to sit and read, or eat breakfast – inside the comfort of the home – but nestled within the well-established landscaped area to the north of the existing house, providing a space for the owner to appreciate the garden in the warmth of the sun. The sunroom extension was designed to draw more light deeper into the living areas, but also to visually extend the living space of the house out into the landscape. A brick floor within the sunroom internally folds up into a seated plinth edge which slips through full-height glazing to become a strong geometric plinth in the garden.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ben HoskingThe idea over time is to have pots and plants strewn across this geometric form, creating a ‘fuzzy’ edge between the building and the landscape. The interior of the house was gutted of the kitchen, bathroom, and the two stairs. The shell of the existing structure (mud brick, traditional brick, timber and other linings) were all painted white to lighten and brighten the whole volume of space. Within this volume were introduced a new Kitchen with timber veneer fronts, overhead cupboards, and stainless steel bench tops, robust enough to deal with the punishment of an ex-chef. A black steel Spiral stair replaced the two existing timber stairs which ate up valuable floor and wall space. A bridge was also introduced to link the two lofts which were left ‘as-is’ other than a lick of paint and new carpet.Save this picture!Detail Sunroom Section 1Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!Detail Sunroom Section 2In the lounge area, a large monolithic joinery unit was placed behind the existing fireplace, where one of the stairs once stood, this doubles as a Robe into the second Bedroom, and also holds the TV, stereo, books, and wood storage to the living room side. The joinery acts as a sort of ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ displaying some of the owners’ most prized pieces; A 17th-century doll, a number of candelabras, a clock, an underwater diver, and a number of toy cars. An elaborate antique Murano glass chandelier was suspended over the existing large timber dining table, and another display cabinet adjoins the dining area in the space of the second original stair. A third display cabinet was inserted in the place of an old external door, visually opening out the end of the corridor, and displaying more objects from both within and outside the home.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe Bathroom was rejuvenated with crisp white tiles, a heated towel rail, and high-end fixtures and fittings. A custom-designed mosaic fills one wall, incorporating Mexican-like colors in the figure of a large pixelated octopus – a celebratory moment of the owner’s previous passion as a seafood chef. Project gallerySee allShow lessHVB Complex / 23o5studioSelected ProjectsNew Renderings Reveal the Penthouse Interiors at Tadao Ando’s NYC Residential BuildingArchitecture News Share Houses Projects Mexican Swiss Chalet / Perversi-Brooks Architects Photographs Architects: Perversi-Brooks Architects Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img “COPY” Area:  206 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883225/mexican-swiss-chalet-perversi-brooks-architects Clipboard Year:  “COPY” CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Malmsbury, Australia 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883225/mexican-swiss-chalet-perversi-brooks-architects Clipboard Save this picture!© Ben Hosking+ 14 Sharelast_img read more

Horned Frogs fall to Baylor in Big 12 Championship 2-1

first_imgFacebook TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU TCU wants ex-professor’s discrimination suit dismissed + posts Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Robbie Vaglio Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ printSenior defender Ryan Williams scored her first career goal in the 87th minute to force an overtime period in the Big 12 Championship game, but a golden goal by Baylor in the 94th minute sealed the deal for the Bears.A few miscues by TCU’s defense in the first half gave the Bears chances to open the door in the championship match, but the large frame of the Big 12’s top goalkeeper Katie Lund bailed the defense out on many plays to prevent any Baylor goals, continuing her tournament dominance.The Frogs were unable to generate much offense in the first half and spent most of the first 45 minutes on their heels in their defensive zone.The Frogs entered the locker room tied at zero for the fourth straight game and the third time in the Big 12 tournament. Baylor dominated play, firing off eight shots on Lund while the Frogs were unable to produce a shot in the frame.The Frogs came into the second half with a different identity and focus as they were able to control the ball with a larger possession percentage than the first 45 minutes. The Frogs threatened with three consecutive corner kicks in the 50th minute, none of which produced an attack for TCU.The Bears took the lead in the 69th minute of the match off a perfectly placed ball across the box from Aline de Lima to Kennedy Brown who tapped the ball past Lund’s outstretched arms. The goal was just the seventh goal TCU has allowed after halftime this season.Senior forward Emma Heckendorn was involved in a major collision with Baylor’s goalkeeper Jennifer Wandt in the 82nd minute. Heckendorn limped off the field after spending a few minutes lying on her back in pain.When it almost seemed out of reach for the Frogs, TCU caught a major break when Baylor defender Precious Akanyrige was called for a handball in the penalty box in the 87th minute. Williams took the penalty kick and fired it into the back of the net, knotting the game at one.Regulation wasn’t enough to determine the match for TCU’s fifth straight game and for their second straight Big 12 Championship. For the second straight season, the Frogs were defeated in golden-goal fashion in the championship game.In the 94th minute of the match, a beautiful ball from de Lima found a cutting Lauren Piercy who slipped the ball between Lund’s legs and into the back of the net. The goal was the first goal TCU has allowed in overtime this season.“Congratulations to Baylor on a job well-done,” TCU head coach Eric Bell said. “I’m very proud of the way we fought back in the second half and the effort that we put into it in the second half as well as overtime was very valiant. Unfortunately we weren’t able to create enough scoring opportunities to score a goal. I am very proud of our group; I love our group.”Throughout the season, the Frogs played in a school-record nine overtime periods. Sunday’s match was TCU’s first loss in overtime this season.Now the Frogs await their NCAA tournament fate. The NCAA Tournament field will be announced Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. Bell remains optimistic about their chances of making the tournament.“Hopefully the NCAA committee saw what we are made of, and we can get into the tournament,” Bell said. “I think we are one of the top 64 teams in the country. Hopefully we are rewarded on Monday.” Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Twittercenter_img ReddIt Twitter Linkedin I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

UK says new study vindicates delaying 2nd virus vaccine shot

first_imgLocal NewsBusinessUS NewsWorld News WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp LONDON (AP) — Britain’s health chief said Wednesday that a new study suggesting that a single dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine provides a high level of protection for 12 weeks supports the government’s strategy of delaying the second shot so it can protect more people quickly with a first dose. Britain’s decision has been criticized as risky by other European countries, but Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the study “backs the strategy that we’ve taken and it shows the world that the Oxford vaccine works effectively.” Hancock’s comments came after Oxford University released a study showing the vaccine cut transmission of the virus by two-thirds and prevented severe disease. Mene Pangalos, executive vice president of biopharmaceuticals research and development at AstraZeneca, said no patients experienced severe disease or hospitalization three weeks after receiving a first dose, and that efficacy appeared to increase up to 12 weeks after the initial shot. “Our data suggest you want to be as close to the 12 weeks as you can” for the second dose, he told a news conference. The study has not been peer-reviewed yet and does not address the efficacy of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the other one currently in use in the U.K. Pfizer recommends that its shots be given 21 days apart and has not endorsed the U.K. government’s decision to lengthen the time between doses. But the Oxford research was greeted with excitement by U.K. officials under pressure to justify their decision to delay the second dose. “That reduction in transmission, as well as the fact there is no hospitalizations, the combination of that is very good news. And it categorically supports the strategy we’ve been taking on having a 12-week gap between the doses,” Hancock told Sky News. Some countries, including France, have authorized the AstraZeneca vaccine only for use in people under 65, saying there is not enough evidence to say whether it works in older adults. Belgium has authorized it only for people 55 and under. Yet one of the lead researchers on the Oxford vaccine project, Dr. Andrew Pollard, said “we expect it to be highly effective in older adults” and said more data should be available in the next few weeks. Britain has Europe’s deadliest coronavirus outbreak, with more than 108,000 deaths, and is in its third national lockdown as authorities try to contain a new, more transmissible virus variant first identified in southeast England. Other variants are also a concern. Public health officials in England are going door to door, trying to test all adults in eight targeted communities in an attempt to stop a new strain first identified in South Africa from spreading further. So far 105 cases of the variant have been identified in the U.K., 11 of them in people with no links to overseas travel. Scientists say there’s no evidence the South African variant is more serious than the original virus but it may be more contagious. There are also concerns that current vaccines may be less effective against that variant because it contains a mutation of the virus’ characteristic spike protein that existing vaccines target. That is a worry as the U.K. races to vaccinate its own population against the virus. Almost 10 million people have received the first of their two shots, including the bulk of people over 80 and those in nursing homes. Pollard said Oxford scientists believe the AstraZeneca vaccine will continue to offer protection against new variants of COVID-19, although they are still waiting for data on that. He said even if the virus adapts “that doesn’t mean that we won’t still have protection against severe disease.’’ “If we do need to update the vaccines, then it is actually a relatively straightforward process. It only takes a matter of months, rather than the huge efforts that everyone went through last year to get the very large-scale trials run,” he told the BBC. ——— Follow all of AP’s pandemic coverage at https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus- pandemic, https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine and https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak Pinterest Pinterest Twittercenter_img Facebook TAGS  UK says new study vindicates delaying 2nd virus vaccine shot Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Previous articleCoral Springs Medical & Dental Takes Industry-Leading Approach to HealthcareNext articleOutlook on the Digital PCR Global Market to 2027 – Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast – ResearchAndMarkets.com Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more
