Samoa upset Wales in 1991 & 1999

first_imgFriday Nov 13, 2009 Samoa upset Wales in 1991 & 1999 Samoa take on Wales at the Millennium Stadium tonight in what should be an intriguing match that’s filled with intensity and no doubt, the occasional bruising hit. Wales will be favourites, but right of the Samoans at your peril, as the Welsh found out in both 1991 and 1999.The 6th of October 1991 was, at that time, by far the darkest day in Welsh rugby history. A country rich in rugby culture and respected and feared in the seventies particularly, the proud nation of Wales was taken totally off guard by the under-dog Western Samoan team.It was a World Cup pool match at Cardiff Arms Park which Wales fully expected to win. The result meant that they failed to make it out of their group.The Western Samoans did boast the likes of Apollo Perelini, Frank Bunce, Brian Lima, Stephen Bachop, and Pat Lam, but were still a largely unknown factor in their first ever World Cup.After the match, there was a famous remark made that went something like “Thank heavens Wales weren’t playing the whole of Samoa.”In 1999, history repeated itself as Wales once again went down to the South Sea Islands, who were then competing solely as Samoa. It was the World Cup again, and Wales were the hosts, so after the last two failures, they were determined to do better.Graham Henry was coach, and Rob Howley captain.“Whilst everything was pretty rosy, the Samoan team that day had Va’aiga Tuigamala and Pat Lam playing for them, along with Graham Bachop who had actually been coached by Graham Henry,” Howley said.“In the Samoan game they did a job on our ball-carrying players and we could not create any forward moves at all because we were relying on those particular players.”Wales lost the match 38-31, and the Samoans picked up yet another World Cup win over a great rugby nation.So while tonight it isn’t the World Cup, and Wales are still the favourites to win the encounter, they’ll no doubt be a little more wary of the hard hitting Samoans than they were back in ’91, and ’99. It should be another cracking match.

Wickham Point House / Arcke

first_img Year:  Australia Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsRecommended ProductsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – Facade“Wickham Point House” respectfully updates the modernist aesthetic established by renowned Queensland Architect James Birrell (Spring Hill Centenary Pools, Toowong Library) while giving the holiday house functionality for a multi-generational family. The original dwelling underwent a significant renovation by James Birrell in the 1960s. Out of respect for the quality of the inherited design, the approach was to treat the new intervention with a light hand. The simplicity and harmony of the original residence were highly valued by the client and architect and provided the underlying basis of the conceptual framework. Subtle interventions and enhancements were a priority.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsSave this picture!Upper level planSave this picture!© Scott BurrowsThe building footprint was not increased but rather reconfigured within the existing form and modernised to provide flexible living spaces. Without decreasing the size of existing bedrooms, sleeping arrangements have been created for children with bunk beds tucked into the hallways and daybeds that double as full-sized singles and trundles.  Wherever possible, existing components have been retained, and in some instances reinterpreted in a contemporary context. The original design features of Birrell’s renovation including large sliding doors, dark wood cabinetry and timber screens have been retained, and in some areas incorporated as elements into the new design. Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsSave this picture!© Scott BurrowsThe sunroom is a bolder more distinct form that replaces a later incongruous 1980’s addition. The contemporary, high-ceiling structure clad in robust teak to shelter from the west provides an alternative reading area for adults, additional beds and play space for children. The 1960s pool and patio were refurbished for modern entertaining with the inclusion of a suspended concrete bench and brick charcoal grill. The master bedroom with ensuite bookend the house and an over-generous laundry was relocated to become accessible to the southern side.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsSave this picture!© Scott BurrowsThe beach house has long represented a model for small footprint living. The house’s performance has matched the original brief for a light-filled, functional and beautiful multi-generational family holiday home. Through passive design principles, the house does not require any air-conditioning and through no increase in footprint, but rather a reinterpretation of spaces, this design has minimized its impact on the environment. The owners’ inherent understanding of the local climatic conditions and the ensuing architectural design response has resulted in a house with minimal environmental impact – a fundamental philosophy of Arcke’s practice. Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsProject gallerySee allShow lessKunshan Government Affairs Service Centre / SDTDSelected ProjectsGR House / Frederico Trevisan ArquitetoSelected Projects Share Matt Kennedy Architects: Arcke Area Area of this architecture project Wickham Point House / Arcke Save this picture!© Scott Burrows+ 22Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects Houses “COPY” ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922416/wickham-point-house-arcke Clipboard Wickham Point House / ArckeSave this projectSaveWickham Point House / Arcke Area:  225 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeArckeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSunshine CoastAustraliaPublished on August 06, 2019Cite: “Wickham Point House / Arcke” 06 Aug 2019.

Viticultural Area Designation Will Boost Indiana Wine Industry

first_img Facebook Twitter Gina SheetsISDA Director Gina Sheets says wineries are a great economic resource for rural communities, “It is estimated that, for every dollar spent at a winery, $4 are spent in that community; so that represents millions of dollars spent in rural communities.” Currently there are 63 wineries in the state that are visited by about 2 million people annually.  She told HAT this kind of regional designation is being used more and more by rural areas to encourage the development of certain types of agriculture and agritourism opportunities, “Communities are discovering that these kinds of designations can bring millions of people looking for a weekend activity to their area.” “Our locally produced wines are outstanding,” said Jeanette Merritt, Marketing Director of the Indiana Wine Grape Council. “Attaining an AVA designation is another indicator of the wine industry’s importance to Indiana, and how the industry is regarded outside our state in terms of product quality, economic development and agri-tourism.” SHARE By Gary Truitt – Feb 12, 2013 Home News Feed Viticultural Area Designation Will Boost Indiana Wine Industry Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 2/12/2013 Evening Comment With Gary WilhelmiNext articleExtreme Weather Could Hurt Winter Wheat Crop Gary Truitt Jim ButlerTwo million acres of Southern Indiana has been designated by the Federal Government as a viticultural area. This federal designation highlights this part of Indiana as a great place to grow grapes and produce wine.  Jim Butler, with Butler Winery, says Southern Indiana has the soil, the typography, and the climate that is perfectly suited to producing wine grapes.   Nicolas Doty, with French Lick Winery, says this designation will result in the expansion of the wine industry in this part of the state, “This designation will mean a lot to our expansion plans.” He said wine grapes are a great crop for farmers with limited resources and smaller acreage, “Wine grapes are a great thing to grow; it is labor intensive but not equipment intensive.” He said, as wineries expand in Southern Indiana, there will an increasing demand for wine grapes.center_img [audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2013/02/winewrap.mp3|titles=Viticultural Area Designation Will Boost Indiana Wine Industry] SHARE Viticultural Area Designation Will Boost Indiana Wine Industry Approximately 200 AVAs exist in the US, including an Ohio AVA that takes in a small portion of southeast Indiana. Implemented in 1978, the AVA system identifies the origin of American wines in a manner similar to a system used by France. A wine with an AVA designation on its label must have 85 percent of its grapes grown in that viticultural area. Designation is based on multiple characteristics of the region including topography, soil type, climate, elevation, and, in some instances, historical precedent. AVAs range in size from several hundred to several million acres. The designation is granted by the US Department of the Treasury’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. The Indiana Uplands AVA runs in a swath from the Morgan-Monroe County line near Bloomington south to the Ohio River, a distance of just over 100 miles. Its greatest east/west distance is approximately 65 miles, from near Jasper in Dubois County to Knobstone Ridge near Starlight.  “Having an American Viticultural Area declared for the Indiana Uplands truly shows just how important our vineyards are to our agriculture industry in Indiana,” said Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann, who also serves as Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture.  In a statement released on Tuesday, she said “With over 600 acres of grapes planted in the state, and a significant portion of those planted in the Indiana Uplands AVA, I’m encouraged we will see even more vineyards and wineries take root in the future.” Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Rouhani government suspends reformist newspaper

first_img Help by sharing this information IranMiddle East – North Africa Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists to go further June 9, 2021 Find out more Organisation February 25, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s decision by the Press Authorization and Surveillance Commission, which is run by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, to suspend the reformist daily Bahar for an article deemed to have “insulted Islam’s sacred texts.”RWB also deplores the long jail terms that a Tehran revolutionary court has passed on well-known documentary filmmaker Mahnaz Mohammadi and on actress and blogger Pegah Ahangarani. Mohammadi was notified of her five-year sentence on 23 October. Ahangarani was notified of her 18-month sentence yesterday.“Despite moderate-conservative President Hassan Rouhani’s election promises, the reformist newspaper Bahar’s suspension shows that the regime’s reform priorities are reducing tension with the international community, not reducing the suppression of freedoms or the persecution of news and information providers,” Reporters Without Borders said.Confirming Bahar’s suspension under article 12 of the press code over an article published on 23 October, the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance accused the newspaper of “falsifying history” and “trying to create differences among the country’s clerics.”Headlined “Ali, the Shiites’ first Imam, was a religious leader before being a political leader,” the article was fiercely criticized by media that support regime hardliners and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, which interpreted it as a criticism of Khamenei.Bahar itself published several comments criticising the article in its next day’s issue, along with an apology for its “grave error.” It even suspended publication for an indefinite period on its own initiative. But the hardline media are still campaigning for it to be closed down for good.The filmmaker Mohammadi has been arrested twice in the past four years, on 29 July 2009 and 26 June 2011, each time spending a month in prison before freed on bail. Since then, she has been subject to constant harassment and has been summoned several times for questioning by intelligence ministry officials.Ahangarani was arrested at her Tehran home by intelligence ministry officials on 10 July 2011 and was held for 17 days before being released on bail of 100 million toman (75,000 euros). Meanwhile, in a report published on 23 October, Ahmed Shaheed, the UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in Iran, said the situation “continues to warrant serious concern, with no sign of improvement in the areas previously raised,” including the number of executions and violations of freedom of expression.The Iranian government, which continues to ban Shaheed from visiting Iran, said the report, “describes the human rights situation in Iran in a completely unfair manner and with political motivations.”Stressing that the government did not recognize the special rapporteur, foreign ministry spokesman Marzieh Afkham said in a statement carried by state radio and TV that Iran would not permit that “such partial reports become the measure by which the human rights situation in Iran is judged.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the Iranian government to make a real break with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s policies, to cooperate unconditionally with the United Nations and to allow a visit by the special rapporteur. The international community must press the Iranian authorities to submit to the special rapporteur’s mandate.”RWB is also very concerned about two Kurdish journalists based in the western city of Mahamabad – Khosro Kourdpour, the editor of the news website Mokeryan, and his brother, Masoud Kourdpour, a reporter for the site – whose trial ended yesterday in Mahamabad.Sentence has not yet been passed but the charges on which they were tried – “mohareb” (being an enemy of God), anti-government activities and propaganda, and publishing information about the situation of prisoners and human rights – carry the death penalty.Arrested in early March, they were held illegally by the intelligence services for 111 days before being charged.
