Summer Test: Japan 16-21 Scotland

first_img TAGS: Japan It was little wonder they changed their entire front row at half-time – though that only served to highlight Scotland’s lack of depth in that area – while the introduction of Greig Laidlaw after 50 minutes brought a little more direction to the team’s play as they kicked for territory. However, they still struggled to cope with Japan’s slick attack and build any momentum of their own. Yes, it was the last game of an extremely long and onerous season, and yes, the conditions would have been uncomfortable, but this was a lacklustre performance from a team that had showed such signs of improvement earlier in the season.Going to ground: Stuart Hogg is tackled as he tries to launch an attack. Photo: Getty ImagesQueues – A line of people snaked alongside the stadium and back on itself even 90 minutes before kick-off. They were queuing to get inside the stadium itself but having only one gate open meant rather a long wait in hot and humid conditions. Not ideal organisation and something that should be looked at for future games.The hooter – There’s letting the crowd know it’s half-time and then there’s letting the whole locale know. If anyone was catching 40 winks as the first half drew to a close – unlikely as there was plenty on the pitch to entertain – they would have been rudely awakened by the extremely loud hooter. It was a shock to the system and it was the same again at full-time.

A rundown of what’s hot and what’s not from the second Japan-Scotland Test Scotland maintained their winning record against Japan with this seventh victory in seven Tests – but it was an error-strewn performance from the visitors at Tokyo’s Ajinomoto Stadium. In fact, Japan impressed in attack far more than their Scottish opponents, scoring a sensational first-half try and pressurising the line regularly in the second 40. The Scots, in contrast, could not create even one try-scoring opportunity and had to rely on the boot of Greig Laidlaw to grind out a narrow win from a succession of penalties.WHAT’S HOTTry-tastic – Japan produced one of the tries of 2016 in the 20th minute. First, they should be congratulated for backing themselves to attack from deep in their own 22. Within seconds full-back Rikiya Matsuda had taken the ball up to halfway and their speed of play was even more impressive as they spread the ball to the right and moved up the pitch. Amanaki Mafi drew in two Scottish defenders, offloaded to Shokei Kin, who then fed a simple try-scoring pass to scrum-half Kaito Shigeno. Fast of feet, hands and mind, simple movements but hugely effective ones – it was a quite brilliant score. And a team try too.The crowd – It wasn’t a sellout but there was a big turn out at Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo, the stands awash with cherry-and-white shirts. They were engrossed in the game too, ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ ringing out in reaction to different pieces of play, the noise undulating depending on the situation, and plenty of applause throughout. The national team’s performances at RWC 2015 have brought a new audience to the game in this country and let’s hope it keeps growing as we head towards Japan’s World Cup in three years’ time.Special guests: Japan’s Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko wave to the crowd in Tokyo. Photo: ReutersQuick and slick Japan – Everyone knows how good Japan played at last year’s World Cup and they continued to impress with this performance. They may have been missing key players like Michael Leitch, Ayumu Goromaru and Fumiaki Tanaka, but their organisation was superb. They were far quicker than Scotland at getting the ball away from the breakdown and were far more reliable at keeping the ball in hand than their opponents. Passes would zip left and right, the support player invariably where they were supposed to be. As Henry Pyrgos said afterwards “Japan play at a really high tempo”, while Vern Cotter added that the hosts had “lifted the intensity” from the first Test.Laidlaw’s boot – There was little in this performance to warm Scottish hearts but Greig Laidlaw, a second-half replacement, stepped up to slot two long-range penalties from just inside the Japanese half to put the visitors in front with ten minutes to go. His fourth successful kick in the 77th minute then put the game beyond Japan’s reach.He can kick it: Greig Laidlaw’s 12 points helped Scotland to victory. Photo: ReutersWHAT’S NOTScotland’s first half – Pushed around at the scrum, inaccurate at the lineout and handling errors across the park: the first 40 minutes were not pretty for Scotland. They couldn’t assert any authority up front, either at the set-piece or the breakdown, where they had to commit numbers to retain possession. And when they did get possession with which to attack, more often than not there would be a knock-on or dropped pass, resulting in the attack fizzling out.

HUS NILSSON is a summer house situated at the Norrfjärden bay in the archipelago ofnorth Sweden, on a steep slope between the forest and the sea. Despite being on the east coast, the site is facing west. Buildings in the area are mainly summer houses, scatteredalong the coast line and accessed from behind by a net of private roads. The bay is livelywith people fishing and bathing in the summer, and ice skating in the winter.The existing house on the site was a very small cabin from the 1950s, without water in thewinter and mainly built for short visits – somewhere to get warm after fishing and skating.The family wanted a house inhabitable during all seasons, with internal and external spacesturning towards the beautiful view across the bay and towards the forest.Save this picture!Site PlanThey also wanteda house which could both be sociable and allow for privacy for the different members of thefamily, also in the long term.The new house, a singular long and narrow building volume with a steep pitched roof andclosed gables, spans across the site and aims to be the connection between the forest andthe water. By its form and its placement on the site, it allows many of its rooms a view ofthe sea; the placement also affords privacy and prevents the house from feeling overlookedby its neighbours. The building is tied to its site by being sat directly upon an existing stoneretaining wall; the wall creates a natural outdoor terrace overlooking the sea, onto whichthe internal spaces connects. On the forest side, the site is excavated in order to create amore generous space for play and outdoor work.Save this picture!© Peter GuthrieThe visual and physical contact between the house and with its surroundings is achieved bythe general layout of the spaces: a central open and sociable living space with bedrooms oneither ends which can be connected or closed off. This configuration incoorporatescirculation space in order to minimize wasted floor area, and creates different ways ofmoving through the house, which together with enhanced sightlines increases theperception of space and gives a feeling of that the house is bigger than it is. This feeling isfurther emphasized by the central and freestanding fireplace which also provides a focalpoint and divides the large space into dining and living areas.The one commonly featured'outdoor room' in Nordic private houses is here integrated in the main volume; by making itan external passage through the house, it not only creates a visual and physical connectionbetween the forest and the sea, it also lifts it from its normal periferal position to be thenave of the building.Hus Nilsson is by its form and materiality connecting to the local building tradition in thearea.Save this picture!© Peter GuthrieSave this picture!DetailsSave this picture!© Peter GuthrieAlthough being situated by a fairly sheltered bay in the Baltic sea, the impact of theclimate on buildings in this part of the country is significant. The roof has a steep pitch inorder to reduce snow load, and is given a large overhang to better protect against wind andsalty water. The facade is clad with heart of pine treated with a silicon protection andcomplemented with a cement based stone cladding on the forest facing elevations.The roofis of aluminium-zinc coated sheet steel. The structure is entirely made out of timber; loadcarrying timber studs with a gluelam roof structure. The foundation is a concrete slabfoundation.The building was completed in the summer of 2017. The construction took 7 months fromthe demolition of the existing cabin until completion, and was made possible by an efficientand very successful collaboration between the architect, client, and contractor.Save this picture!© Peter GuthrieProject gallerySee allShow lessDelgada 1 / Camarim ArquitectosSelected ProjectsOffice Building in Za bramką Street/ Ultra ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeTina Bergman ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSöderhamnSwedenPublished on January 30, 2018Cite: “Hus Nilsson / Tina Bergman Architect” 30 Jan 2018.

California Sets Zero Bail for Many Offenses

first_img Community News Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * California’s Judicial Council has begun moving toward setting bail at zero for most misdemeanor and lower-level felonies in an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus in jails statewide by reducing the number of inmates.During a meeting by teleconference, the council Monday approved 11 temporary emergency rules designed to ensure public safety in the courts and jails while preserving civil rights. The rules, which take effect immediately, also allow local courts to set up remote hearings via teleconference technology and for counsel to appear on behalf of defendants in pretrial proceedings — as part of a bid to limit the number of people in courtrooms.The council also adopted rules to prioritize juvenile proceedings and extend the statute of limitations for civil proceedings.Two other changes allow electronic depositions in civil cases and extend time frames for certain temporary restraining orders.As Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye opened the session, she said the group was working swiftly, but deliberately.“(We are) trying our best to preserve rights and ultimately preserve lives,” Cantil-Sakauye said. “We are at this point truly with no guidance in either history, law or precedent.”The council’s first vote was to suspend foreclosures and evictions statewide, as a way to reinforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive order to delay such actions against California renters and homeowners.All the rules came at the request of Cantil-Sakauye, the council chair, and by recommendation of the chairs of six internal committees.“The Judicial Council should take these temporary actions in order to protect the health and safety of the public, court employees, attorneys, litigants, and judicial officers, as well as staff and inmates in detention facilities, and law enforcement during the state of emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Cantil-Sakauye stated in her request.More than 100 comments on the proposals were received from judges, public defenders, prosecutors, law enforcement, unions and members of the news media.Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey praised the move to reduce bail statewide, noting that Los Angeles County implemented a similar measure last week.“I applaud the chief justice and the Judicial Council for adopting a statewide zero bail for people charged with most misdemeanors and low-level felonies,” Lacey said.“In Los Angeles County, we implemented a zero-bail measure last week that allows us to further reduce the number of people in county jails and courthouses. I appreciate the collaboration among criminal justice leaders in Los Angeles County that has resulted in the rapid deployment of new and innovative approaches as we work to try to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.”Former San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, who will face Lacey in a runoff in November, said the virus has accomplished what criminal justice advocates and research studies could not.“The novel coronavirus has forced our system of justice to confront a not-so-novel question, one that largely defined the criminal justice reform movement even prior to the pandemic: Does keeping huge numbers of people in- custody on small-time offenses pose a greater threat to us all than letting them out?” Gascon asked.“This virus does not care if you’re a prosecutor, victim or a defendant. Innocent or guilty, this virus can still kill you.”The president of the Los Angeles County Public Defender Union, Nikhil Ramnaney, called the change to bail schedules statewide an important step. But he also noted that it applies only to new cases.“It still leaves thousands of people in local custody throughout the state who were arrested and had bail set prior to the amendment,” Ramnaney said. “We need to make sure that these people — charged with identical offenses and who do not pose any risk to public safety — are expedited for release. We believe that cash bail is clearly discriminatory against indigent persons and these discriminatory effects have been especially demonstrated during the emergency.”Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said the council should have allowed pretrial services professionals to do a risk assessment on some zero-bail cases, because some of the defendants may have prior strikes.“They didn’t do any risk assessment here,” Spitzer said. “They should use detention release staff to look at the dangerousness (of some defendants). I think that’s very shortsighted.”This was the second emergency meeting of the Judicial Council in response to the coronavirus outbreak.Even before the earlier meeting, Cantil-Sakauye took action on March 23 to suspend all jury trials in California’s superior courts for 60 days to allow courts to immediately adopt new rules to address the impact of the COVID- 19 pandemic.Also on March 23, Los Angeles County Superior Court Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile signed an order restricting access to all Los Angeles County courthouses to judges, commissioners, court staff and authorized people — including members of the media — until further notice, while also mandating social distancing of at least 6 feet.Two days later, Los Angeles-based unions representing prosecutors, public defenders and city attorneys called for a complete closure of local courts, claiming the mandate was not being followed and blasting the superior court’s failure to accommodate appearances by phone and video conference.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save About Author: Phil Hall Foreclosures and Evictions Could Derail a Recovery While the results of last night’s presidential election remain too close to call, a leading political science academic is warning that the January 2021 occupant of the White House will be forced to deal with the greatest foreclosure and eviction crisis since the Great Recession.After the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the economy, moratoriums were declared on both foreclosures and evictions. But these measures were only temporary and will be gone by 2021 unless they are renewed.In an opinion piece published on the Informed Comment website, John Buell, a former professor at the College of the Atlantic, observed that an after-effect of the COVID-19 pandemic’s economic trauma will weigh on the housing market as homeowners and renters struggle to keep up with housing costs.“If foreclosures and evictions are standing in the way of recovery, it is also safe to say that the draconian cuts in budgets of state and local governments translate into wage reductions and/or unemployment for public sector workers and thus more pressures on the housing market,” Buell wrote. “If homeowners and government workers are not able to create sufficient demand to restore economic growth the federal government must step in. State governments are constitutionally prohibited from borrowing for daily expenses.”Buell lamented that while this situation metastasizes, “there is very little talk about how debt might be restructured or how to house the many who will be left homeless. What talk there is once again seems to blame the debtors.” He recalled a similar situation that occurred following the 2008-2009 crisis.“Borrowers lost their homes and savings even as bankers reaped multi-million dollar bonuses,” he continued. “Borrowers alone were punished despite the fact that for every improvident borrower there is a reckless or manipulative lender. The bailout legislation in effect recognized this truth and allotted a portion of the bailout relief for homeowners. Nonetheless, the Obama Administration chose not to implement that part of the legislation even though assistance to ordinary borrowers would have been at least as effective in saving the banking system.”Buell cited a proposal from Debunking Economics Australian economist Steve Keen for a “simple one-time grant of say $50,000, which can be spent only after it has been used to pay down any personal debt,” adding that the concept deserved consideration.“This proposal has several merits,” he said. “Because it is universal, it would help the thrifty homeowners sufficiently who have paid off most of their mortgage while also aiding those underwater from home or student loans. With another debt foreclosure crisis coming, it is imperative that such ideas receive a fair hearing.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago November 4, 2020 15,583 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: Digital Transactions: A Matter of Business Survival Next: NAHB Files Lawsuit Opposing CDC Moratorium last_img read more

The ability for the well to produce good quality oil from the Upper Jurassic reservoirs at such rates without the need for a downhole pump is very encouraging and demonstrates the considerable potential of this field“In addition to the successful re-entry, the ability to be able to sign an attractive oil offtake contract at competitive prices and discounted Mineral Extraction Tax rate applicable to this field further enhances the value of oil produced from this Licence.”PetroNeft is assessing the current production information to decide on whether to build an all-season road to the C-4 well to enable year-round production.Additionally, the firm is moving the workover rig from C-4 to the C-3 well on the southern margin of the Cheremshanskoye field, to assess the deeper Jurassic J-14 reservoir.
