RBS 6 Nations: French search for the perfect 10

first_img Stumbling blocks: France No 10 Freddie Michalak is stopped in his tracks by England’s half-backs at TwickenhamBy Gavin Mortimer “IF YOU any good ideas, give them to me,” said Philippe Saint-Andre in the aftermath of Saturday’s Six Nations defeat to England. The coach of France was responding to a question from a French journalist about the search for a No 10, the problem position for the Blues for the last couple of seasons. Actually, it’s been France’s problem position for years, decades, even. The evidence? Look at the all-time list of Test top points scorers – not one Frenchman in the top 20, the only nation from the Big Ten not represented.Plan B: Trinh-Duc was hauled off after 52 minsIt’s the view of Saint-Andre – and many others within French rugby – that there are too many foreign fly-halves in the Top 14 and it’s because of their presence that Les Bleus can’t find an international standard No 10. “Jonny Wilkinson, I can’t [select],” he complained to the French press on Sunday. “[Luke] McAllister neither. [Johnny] Sexton will be at Racing Metro next season so I can’t look there…” So that’s three clubs. What about the other 11? In fact last weekend, as Frederic Michalak and Francois Trinh-Duc were falling short against England, there were ten French fly-halves on show in the Top 14. So much for Saint-Andre’s theory.The likes of Clermont’s David Skrela and Lionel Beauxis of Toulouse have been capped many times by France, but never quite made the grade, while players such as Benat Arrayet of Mont-de-Marsan and Castres’ Rémy Tales are good solid professionals who have never had that little bit of star dust quality needed for Test rugby.But three of the fly-halves are youngsters, stars of recent France U20 sides, and tipped for great things when still in their teens. Yann Lesgourgues made his Heineken Cup debut for Biarritz against Gloucester in January 2010, when he was still only 18, while Jules Plisson, the 21-year-old Stade Francais fly-half, played in the recent junior world championship. So, too, Mathieu Ugalde, the 20-year-old who’ll be learning a great deal playing outside Mike Phillips at Bayonne.These three players have got the talent, and they’re being given the opportunity at their respective clubs, just as 21-year-old Owen Farrell has at Saracens, 23-year-old Dan Biggar at the Ospreys or 21-year-old Duncan Weir at Glasgow. What it will come down to, ultimately, is whether these young Frenchmen have the right temperament. And therein lies the real problem for Saint-Andre. NOT FOR FEATURED So it’s not the lack of French qualified fly-halves that is the problem for Saint-Andre; it’s the fact most of them in recent times have had the temperament of a ten-year-old.Follow Gavin Mortimer on Twitter @gavinmortimer7 The dearth of decent French fly-halves is a conundrum that stretches back to the mid-1990s and the retirement of Thierry Lacroix, the last really reliable No 10 to wear the cockerel on his chest. Since then we’ve watched countless French fly-halves flatter to deceive: Thomas Castaignede, Christophe Lamaison, Yann Delaigue, Gerald Merceron, Francois Gelez, Michalak, Beauxis, Skrela, Trinh-Duc.Chart-topper: Christophe LamaisonLamaison, incidentally, is France’s record points scorer. Guess how many? 380.Yet in the same era France has produced four scrum-halves of world-class quality. Think Fabien Galthie, Jean-Baptiste Élissalde, Dimitri Yachvili and Morgan Parra, all brilliant players, decisive leaders and all, with the exception of Galthie, goal-kickers. Is this another reason for the lack of quality fly-halves in France? The strong characters of their scrum-halves, allied to their goal-kicking skills, have combined to undermine the role of the fly-half and to weaken his influence on the game.It’s just a wee theory, but one I believe in even more after watching Perpignan play Stade Francais last Saturday. In the final quarter of the game Stade were awarded a penalty slap bang in front of the posts, and captain David Lyons told Plisson to take the three points. Plisson wanted to kick to the corner and go for a seven-pointer but his captain was adamant – take the three points. Plisson petulantly teed up the ball, sulkily swung his boot and sliced his kick wide. As Plisson later admitted it was a miss that would have shamed a “schoolboy”.

One killed, two injured in gun attack on Burundi church

first_img Submit a Press Release Rector Knoxville, TN By Gavin DrakePosted Dec 9, 2015 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Anglican Communion News Service] A young boy has been killed and two people injured after an armed gang attacked a church in the Burundian capital Bujumbura. No motive for the attack on St. Mark’s Church, Ngagara, is known; but it is believed to be part of ongoing violence that has left more than 240 people dead since President Pierre Nkurunziza announced in April that he would seek re-election for an unprecedented third term. Nkurunziza won July’s election and survived an attempted coup.“This kind of attack is common in the capital here,” a spokesman for the Anglican Church of Burundi told ACNS, “but it is the first time that a church has been attacked. Ngagara is one of the places that is often attacked. Often there is gunfire and shootings in the place.“It was an attack by a group of people. One person has been killed and two other persons have been injured. One is the wife of the assistance pastor of St Marks and [the other] his child.”Earlier this month, the U.S. special envoy for Africa’s Great Lakes Region, Thomas Perriello, warned that a “regionally mediated dialogue” was needed to prevent the crisis descending into full-blown civil war. It is only 10-years since Burundi emerged from its last civil war – a conflict that lasted 12 years.Perriello was quoted by the Associated Press news agency as saying that there was still “a window, no matter how small, to get a peace process going.” He added: “We’ve learned way too painfully from the past that you don’t want to wait until after a genocide has started to be doing things to prevent it from happening.”The U.S. is backing a peace process being led by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni; but so far the two sides have failed to begin negotiations.The European Commission (EC) said Dec. 8 that its negotiations with Burundi had concluded without satisfactory progress. “The European Union considers that the essential elements [progress on human rights, democratic principles and the rule of law specified in an EU-Burundi agreement] have not been met by the Republic of Burundi,” the EC said in a statement.“Following the consultations held in Brussels on 8 December, the European Union took note of the replies given by the Burundi Government and its commitment to provide clarifications to questions and to accelerate certain judicial procedures. Nevertheless, the European Union considers the positions expressed do not help to improve the breaches of the essential elements of its partnership with the Republic of Burundi.”The commission emphasized the need for “rapid implementation of a genuine and inclusive dialogue” and said that it would be recommending “appropriate measures” to the decision making bodies of the European Union.Anglicans make up around 10 per cent of Burundi’s nine-million population. The Anglican presence began in the 1930s through the work of CMS and grew rapidly as a result of the East African Revival. The Province, which has existed since 1992, contains seven dioceses, and is active in the work of peace and reconciliation, advocacy, education, health, literacy and financial education, and community development.St Mark’s Church in Ngagara was consecrated onA ug. 5, 2012 by the Bujumbura Bishop Pie Ntukamzina and Burundi’s Archbishop and Primate Bernard Ntahoturi. The building, which holds 1,600 people, took nine years to complete. Its construction was funded by local Christians.

He graduated from Ensley High School in 1954 and received a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Alabama in 1958, where he was inducted into the national honor societies Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa. He was also chapter president of his college fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha, and worked a year after graduation for the national fraternity visiting chapters around North America.Erv then entered graduate school at Indiana University where he met his future wife, Letetia (Tish) Holloway, and received his Master or Arts in public administration in May 1960.Erv and Tish were married at Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore in 1960. After serving as dean of men at Bowling Green State University, he entered Virginia Theological Seminary from which he was graduated in 1965.He began his ministry as assistant rector at The Church of the Good Shepherd in Ruxton, and then as rector at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Glyndon. In the 1970s and ’80s, Erv served as rector at Episcopal parishes in Lynchburg, Virginia; Detroit, Michigan; and, St. Michaels, Maryland, before retiring in 2002 to Baltimore where he served as interim dean at the cathedral and on the staffs of the Church of the Redeemer and Memorial Church, Bolton Hill.He and Tish shared a love of travel, and Erv took special pride in leading pilgrimages to the Holy Land, Britain and Spain.

The Belgian territory is full of houses stemming from the industrialization of housing. These pavilion type homes remain the most widely produced and desired type, making affordable the “ideal life” of a house with a garage and a garden that many Belgian citizens dream of. The flipside of the standardization of these houses is a reduction in quality, both in terms of both space and integration to the urban landscape.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThis particular house had become too small for its owner who wished to expand his living space. Thus the request was limited to one extra room. Our response draws inspiration from the existing house in order to create contrast: an inverted roof in opposition with the existing traditional roof, less ordinary window framing for specific views on the oustide environment, a wooden structure rather than the older masonry. In the end, this extension creates a dialogue between old and new trhough opposition: a wooden cabin grafted onto the home, a traditional construction attached to the very image of standardized habitatSave this picture!© Filip DujardinProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Interviews: Will Bruder / Will Bruder ArchitectsInterviewsMola Structural Kit: A New Way to Learn About StructuresArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/543746/house-and-adn-architectures Clipboard CopyAbout this officeadn ArchitecturesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionAnderluesHousesRefurbishmentBelgiumPublished on September 12, 2014Cite: “House AND / adn Architectures” 12 Sep 2014.

The house is for a couple and their three little children, located in a quiet residential area in northern Kyoto city. The site environment is where neighbor houses are standing at the edge of the east, west, south boundary, and houses are lined on the other side of the north narrow road.Save this picture!© Yosuke OhtakeThe specific requests at the beginning were not so many. Their needs came to clear little by little, as various plans were proposed. Since the couple preferred simple and open plan and also they must keep watching their three children are constantly moving, the house was designed as one big space, placing the double-height living room at the center so that they can see where and who does what.Save this picture!© Yosuke OhtakeAfter placing car parking at the front and laying out required inner rooms, enough space for a garden was hardly left at the back side of the site, and there are neighbor’s walls blocking closely even if the windows are opened on the outer walls. Therefore, it was considered that taking a courtyard was effective in terms of daylighting as well.Save this picture!© Yosuke OhtakeSave this picture!© Yosuke OhtakeHowever, a courtyard enclosed with glazed walls in a limited width of the site makes the left space tight, thus, the indoor tree idea that is as if a courtyard drew into the room inside came up in mind.
It is expected that the tree which will grow close to three children will strengthen the relationship between the family and the house as if the tree is another member of the family.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!FloorplanFinishings were chosen in the balance between the modern structure of the house and traditional Japanese style from the husband’s preference.
The bathroom was placed in the middle of the house facing the living room so that the husband who likes taking bath above all could enjoy it with his children like an open-air bath, looking at the trees.
Although a curtain-rail was set in the bathroom just in case, even after a few months of living there, it seems the family got used to the exposed bathroom as they are still using it without a curtain.
It is like the character of the residents and the house got very close now after a lot of discussions spending time, designing back and forth.Save this picture!© Yosuke OhtakeProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse by the Park / Khosla AssociatesSelected ProjectsDouradores Residential Building Renovation / José Adrião ArquitetosSelected Projects Share Structural Engineering: Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920871/house-in-kyoto-07beach Clipboard Area:  131 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: 07BEACH Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this office07BEACHOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKyotoIcebergOn InstagramJapanPublished on June 05, 2021Cite: “House in Kyoto / 07BEACH” 05 Jun 2021.
