Dwayne Peel – Sale, Llanelli Scarlets and Wales

first_imgAndy PowellRowland Phillips Dwayne Peel concentrating a little too hardWe caught up with the Welsh scrum half before he was due to join Sale from Scarlets early in 2008. He chatted about the change of scenery, hitting the headlines, being the victim of many pranks and turning to golf after rugby. RUGBY WORLD: You’re joining Sale next season. How are you going to cope swapping Llanelli for the big-city lifestyle in Manchester?DWAYNE PEEL: It should be a good experience, a change of scenery. I’ve not lived outside Wales so it’ll be good to have a change, on and off the field.RW: At the World Cup, Mark Jones put a sheep in your hotel room. Have you got revenge yet?DP: Not yet. I’d better be quick, though, because time’s running out. I’ve only got a couple of months left at the Scarlets to get him back.RW: So what are you planning?DP: If I told you I’d have to kill you!RW: You’re well known for your pranks. Care to share any?DP: I’ve been quite quiet recently. I’m getting older now and I’m trying to keep my head down. Mark told you most of the ones I did, like cutting the crotch out of all his trousers and pants.RW: Why do you always target Mark?DP: He’s a soft target and continuously bites. I take it all in my stride. At the World Cup it was Matthew Rees and Alix Popham putting all the bikes and stuff in Mark’s room, but I got the blame. The sheep was an unprovoked attack.Jokers, Puppy woes and Deadliest Catch…RW: So who are the other jokers?DP: Robin McBryde was really good, but now he’s a coach he doesn’t really do anything. He was always playing about with people’s cars. He once parked mine on a roundabout.RW: If your house was on fire, what three things would you save?DP: My dog, Roco. He’s one now but is still a nightmare round the house, chewing things. He’s getting worse! I’d also save my laptop because it has all my pictures on it. And the Sky Plus box.RW: What do you record on Sky Plus?DP: I like documentaries. I watch them all the time. I really like Deadliest Catch on Discovery. It’s about fishing for lobster and crab in the Bering Sea.RW: What’s your pre-match routine?DP: It depends what time kick-off is, but I usually have a lie-in. Then I’ll watch a bit of TV, chill out and eat beans on toast.RW: What are the best and worst headlines you’ve seen about yourself? TAGS: Sale SharksScarlets DP: When I joined Sale, the South Wales Evening Post ran a story with a pic of me on the front page with a mini story about me leaving. The main article, though, had a massive headline saying ‘We Don’t Want Sex Pests Here’. The boys were saying that Sale fans had already made their feelings clear and when I went into the club the next day loads of copies had been pinned up.Vanilla Ice, Being an impatient driver and Future goals…RW: What’s your karaoke song?DP: Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. I only do it when asked, which is not very often.RW: Do you have any phobias?DP: Snakes, I hate them. I think I’d really freak out if I ever saw one.RW: What about your bugbears?DP: I live out in the country and people fly-tipping really bugs me. Why do it? I also hate roadworks and I can’t stand being in traffic – I get really impatient.RW: Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with?DP: The Rolling Stones – it would be brilliant for stories in there.RW: What superpower would you like?DP: Invisibility. I’d like to go into a big organisation like the CIA and see what went on, find out secrets.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?DP: I’d like to be a single-handicap golfer. At the moment I’m at 13 – it’s close but not close enough.RW: When did you last laugh?DP: I laugh every day.Check out his stats for WalesLearn more about Dwayne’s teammates at Wales…Ryan Jones LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Matt Dunning’s Drop Goal for the Waratahs

first_imgMonday Feb 5, 2007 Matt Dunning’s Drop Goal for the Waratahs Matt Dunning is a prop from the Waratahs, who’s also played for the Wallabies on numerous occasions. He’s pretty much a tubby guy but is quite talented. He’s also known for getting in punch-ups in pubs, nightclubs, and even with his own teammates at times.ADVERTISEMENTIn this particular game, the Waratahs needed to win the game by 2 tries to advance to the semi finals. In other words, they were meant to be keeping the ball in hand, not kicking.Dunning apparently meant for the drop goal to miss, thus giving his team the penalty (which they’d use to score a try). However, he slotted it perfectly, and as a result, lost the opportunity for scoring the try.NSW won the game 25-14, but not by enough to get into the semi-finals.Many in the team embarked on a 48-hour bender which saw Dunning break teammate Tuiavii’s nose, crash tackle other players, harass a cab driver, and annoying members of the public.

The project is located on a complicated site, in the old city centre of Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian Province. With a Floor Area Ratio of 5,0 and many limiting conditions, a U-shaped floorpan manifested itself as optimum. The program required 400 apartments of 45-110 m2 in size, resulting in an stagering mass of identical units. Variety and diversity is created by manipulating the balconies around the building. Like the famous local ‘seal-stone’ or ‘shouxi-stone’, the balconies are crafted around the main building volume. This crafting creates a wide variety of individual apartments, each with their different exterior space.Save this picture!Courtesy of NEXT architectsOn the ground floor, between the U-shaped volume, a collective ‘living-room’ for all inhabitants is created.Save this picture!DiagramAwarded the ‘Gold Medal Chinese Architectural Housing Design Competition 2012’Save this picture!Courtesy of NEXT architectsProject gallerySee allShow lessPorto Metro / Eduardo Souto de MouraSelected ProjectsThe Presidential Archive of Korea / Samoo Architects & EngineersSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Fuzhou Shi, Fujian Sheng, China, 350000Location to be used only as a reference.

The project is located in Mosha, Iran and is about design of two villas in a site with an area of 2000 sq.m. And 40% slope. The important point at the beginning of the design is about locating zones on site and according to client order, the site was divided into 3 parts and the middle part is the common area between two villas. In this area, we placed pool volume as a valuable element and two stairs that are backbones of design and dividers of each villa’s border.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Masoud BanafshehThese stairs connect the lowest level of the site to the highest level. In the left and right side, we placed two villas so that they embrace the yard and stairs. Their public zones are facing to the common yard and private zones to site. According to this zoning, three levels of each block was created. Site stairs come to the landings in each level and lead to yards in front of openings.Save this picture!Sections A and BThe possibility of water flow in the project was a positive result of sites’ high slope. Rainwater moves in streams and stores in the ponds in the lowest level of the site. The roofs were sloped in different directions and large openings were created to answer to climate restrictions. Openings give the most view from the inside out and in reverse. In this way, the visual privacy was obtained.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffProject gallerySee allShow lessPURO Kraków Kazimierz Hotel / Conran and PartnersSelected ProjectsEnka Power Station Headquarters / GAD ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Mosha Twin Villa / Special Space Studio ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903967/mosha-twin-villa-special-space-studio Clipboard 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903967/mosha-twin-villa-special-space-studio Clipboard Manufacturers: Azarakhsh Brick, Imola, KWC, Kale, Abeskon, Mahkam, Yoovam Photographs “COPY” Projects Iran Architects: Special Space Studio Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Photographs:  Parham Taghioff, Masoud Banafsheh Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Lead Architects: Houses Save this picture!© Parham Taghioff+ 28Curated by Fernanda Castro Share ArchDaily CopyHouses, Residential•Mosha, Iran CopyAbout this officeSpecial Space StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBuildingsResidentialMoshaIranPublished on December 23, 2018Cite: “Mosha Twin Villa / Special Space Studio” 22 Dec 2018.

Capitalism on trial in Boston

first_imgAndre Francois, left, and Steve Kirschbaum (with bullhorn) at Sept. 15 rally. Both were illegally fired by Veolia.Photo: Howard RotmanThe grievance chair and founder of the Boston School Bus Drivers’ Union will be in court on Nov. 24, facing trumped-up charges brought by the Boston-area district attorney’s office on behalf of notorious union-buster Veolia Corporation.Steve Kirschbaum, a 40-year member of United Steelworkers Local 8751, is facing charges related to an action held in a bus yard after a pro-union rally on June 30, the day the union contract with Veolia expired. Union members and supporters gathered in a Veolia office that day to continue the rally and hear updates on contract negotiations.Because there were so many people present at the rally, there are dozens of witnesses who can attest to the fact that the ridiculous charges remaining against Kirschbaum — assault with a deadly weapon and trespassing — are false. Many have already signed sworn affidavits for the defense to that effect.While Kirschbaum is facing the trumped-up charges, it is the courts that are on trial here — and, by extension, capitalism. That this case was even able to make it to trial reveals the true role of the courts under the for-profit system: it’s part of the bosses’ first line of defense against the workers.At the pre-trial hearing, Kirsch­baum’s defense team produced a falsified repair order it had gotten from Veolia. This work order purported to be for the repair of the door that was apparently damaged when the building was broken into — but the date on the work order was June 30, the same date the incident, which happened in the evening, was alleged to have occurred.Kirschbaum’s lawyers also read the exact language from the union contract that stipulated union officers were granted “unlimited access to the company property” — language which alone should have torpedoed the trespassing charge (especially since the breaking-and-entering charge had already been dismissed by the judge).Veolia using court in union struggleOther evidence makes it clear that the courts are being used by Veolia in its labor struggle with the union. The evidence includes an affidavit from a mechanic stating there was no damage to the breakroom door, as well as a video of a June 30 conversation between Kirschbaum and a police officer after the meeting in the drivers’ breakroom, in which absolutely no mention was made of any assault.The case against Kirschbaum is so weak that the judge dismissed two of the four charges originally brought by Veolia — which included daytime breaking and entering and malicious destruction of property — as well as a motion to bar the union leader from the Veolia premises altogether. For the judge to have dismissed all the charges would have signaled to Boston’s bourgeoisie that this court could not be relied upon as a tool against the workers.The patent absurdity and political nature of the case are evident. What is the “dangerous weapon” Kirschbaum is said to have used? A table — allegedly pushed against someone.Even Veolia doesn’t deny that the breakroom was used by dozens of people for the after-rally meeting. Then why is Kirschbaum being singled out for criminal charges?Defense lawyer John Pavlos noted the presence of Veolia General Manager Alex Roman at the Oct. 6 pre-trial hearing. Pavlos asserted that the charges against Kirschbaum were an attempt to “take this man [Kirschbaum] out of negotiations at a critical time in this contract struggle.”In times of strikes and intensified struggle, workers learn they can’t rely upon the courts, the police, the media or any of the other pillars of capitalism for justice. In St. Louis, Mo., Michael Brown was shot in broad daylight on Aug. 9, and charges still haven’t been filed against Darren Wilson, the cop who killed him. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has already been caught falsifying the contents of Brown’s autopsy, in an attempt to make it appear to corroborate Wilson’s story.The Boston School Bus Drivers’ Union fight, which includes the struggle for contract justice and the reinstatement of four of its wrongfully terminated leaders, is entering a new phase. Whether labor allies and supporters start organizing for the union now will be critical in determining if it is successful.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Director of baseball operations shares her journey into sports

Carter Stadium ReddIt RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Alexandra Preusser is a sophomore journalism major and business minor from Wilmington, North Carolina. She has worked with TCU360 as a sports journalist. She is also an intern with the TCU Athletics Communications Department. Cap and gown shipments delayed, off-color versions handed out for 2020, 2021 graduates World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Alexandra Preusserhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-preusser/ printIn college, Meredith Montgomery dreamed of being a middle school math teacher. Now, her office is in the Lupton Baseball Stadium.Her journey into baseball began when she kept stats for her high school baseball team. The team’s coach found out she was going to TCU and insisted she meet Jim Schlossnagle, the TCU baseball coach.  Schlossnagle got her in touch with Brandie Davidson, the assistant director of athletics communications that led to an internship with the TCU Athletics communications department. During the summer of 2007 she also interned with the Texas Collegiate League, but even with these opportunities, she never thought of making sports her career.Meredith Montgomery at the College World Series in Omaha in 2014. (Photo courtesy of Meredith Montgomery)Montgomery graduated from TCU in 2009 with her undergraduate degree in education with plans to earn her master’s degree in education. Schlossnagle offered her a position as a graduate assistant with the baseball team, which she could do while earning her master’s. She accepted.Now, she has worked her way up to the director of operations role, one not many females hold.“There are not a lot of female director of operations,” Montgomery said. “It kind of ebbs and flows. When I started, I think there were maybe two other women that were doing the job.”There were some adjustments that had to be made after she got the job. To get to the field, she used to have to go through the locker room, which required a lot of knocking and making sure it was OK to come in. Now, her office is in a different location that gives her easier access to the field.“I kind of happened into it a little bit, was in the right place at the right time, but also, getting that experience while a TCU student kind of led me into that path,” Montgomery said.Her advice for anyone going into sports is to get involved as much as possible and to build a network that will help you in the long run.“Be open to any opportunity and volunteer,” Montgomery said. “A lot of times in athletics, you got to really put in the time, the effort and maybe not get paid as much as one would like for it to get started, but it is always worthwhile.” Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Alexandra Preusser Alexandra Preusserhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-preusser/center_img Facebook Alexandra Preusserhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-preusser/ ReddIt Twitter SportsBaseballNewsDirector of baseball operations shares her journey into sportsBy Alexandra Preusser – November 16, 2020 1528 Linkedin TCU Gives Day raises money for scholarships and department funds Previous articleHoroscope: November 15, 2020Next articleHoroscope: November 16, 2020 Alexandra Preusser Linkedin + posts TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebooklast_img read more

Fighters Young and Old Go Head-to-Head at Villa-Parke’s Boxing Show Last Weekend

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Photo Gallery Fighters Young and Old Go Head-to-Head at Villa-Parke’s Boxing Show Last Weekend Photography by NICK CARRANZA | Story by BRANDON VILLALOVOS Published on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 | 5:34 am More Cool Stuff Subscribe Villa-Parke’s renowned Annual Boxing show brought over a hundred amateur fighters from all over California this past weekend to compete in the ring and get a taste of the spotlight. With fighters ranging from age eight to fifty-four, the park’s community center was packed to walls to see these fierce men and women push their bodies to the limit in the name of America’s oldest competitive sport.“The experience was electrifying,” said Fausto De La Torre, Villa-Parke’s Boxing Specialist.The boxing show is an yearly display of some of Pasadena’s hardest-working and aspiring boxers. It allows boxers of all ages to match up with out-of-city opponents who want to get in the ring and make it count.For many young boxers, the annual boxing show serves as their debut match, while others may have much more experience under their belts. Either way, it is a platform for talent to surface under the microscope of community spectacle which was well attended.“The crowd echoed through the entire facility. The show of support was amazing,” explained De La Torre.De La Torre’s longstanding after school boxing program is where these athletes commit months of training to hopefully match up and put their skills to the test at this annual competition. This event brought 150 boxers to Villa-Parke, many from several hours away, to register to fight at the 2016 Boxing Show. Out of the eleven students from De La Torre’s program that registered, four were successfully matched up and able to step in the ring with a total of 21 matches throughout the day.“We could have matched up 30 bouts, but ultimately couldn’t because of time purposes and the high turnout,” explained De La Torre. “We make sure we are fair in matching up the fighters appropriately according to their weight, age and level of experience.”All of the fighters were given three rounds to come out with a win, which lasted between one and half and three minutes per round depending on their experience. According to amateur boxer and attendee Nick Carranza, the young fighters were hungry for victory.“The kids definitely didn’t hold back. They were fearless,” said Carranza.Of the four fighters from Pasadena that were able to compete, the youngest fighter Humberto Robles proved to be the rising star that De La Torre aims to shape through his dedicated program. At 17 years old, the boxing show was Robles’ eleventh official match as a fighter. Rightfully so, he took home the win and put on a good fight.“He’s at the stage where he now displays the skills we teach. He is a colorful fighter who is definitely a 2020 Olympic hopeful,” explained De La Torre.From young talent like Robles that showed a promising future in the sport, older fighters proved that they still have the fire inside and passion for getting in the ring despite their age.“Seeing the guys in their fifties get on the canvas and step up to the challenge was captivating. This is why we do it. We the guys to get in there and experience the adventure that boxing brings,” said De La Torre.Pasadena Police Chief Philip Sanchez was in attendance to administer awards to participants. Every fighter received an award as an appreciation for their participation in keeping the tradition of the sport alive and well in Pasadena and surrounding areas.Villa-Parke’s Annual Boxing Show accomplished the incredible feat of showcasing a year’s work of sacrifice and dedication into an exciting six hour event for the city to see. The blood sweat and tears that these dedicated fighters brought with them under the lights and in the ring is an experience that Pasadena will continue to host for years to come.Whether it’s for the young talent who seeks a career or it’s the older men who to value the health benefits from staying active, the level of talent that comes through the doors remains uncompromised to say the least.In case you missed it, the fighter’s in the Villa-Parke program will be heading the the Police Activities League (PAL) Boxing Tournament June 20-25 in Oxnard to keep the competitive fire going and to bring home more victories for the city of Pasadena.

Students on scaffolding at Balliol

first_imgStudents of the college have been found by night-porters to be able to access the scaffolding from their rooms, without setting off the alarms on the lowest level of the construction.These alarms are in place to stop poeple gaining access to the college buildings from the street. However, the college has organised for the rest of the scaffolding to be alarmed so that anyone attempting to mount the scaffolding from higher up will trigger the alarm and summon a porter.The email from Douglas Dupree states that, “Once the alarm is in place the College will have to react seriously to anyone who violates this notice (and consider this email as due notice) that the scaffolding is OFF LIMITS. So be warned, for your own safety sake. Stay off the scaffolding. It is dangerous.”However, a lot of students are annoyed about the presence of the scaffolding, which is causing much inconvenience to those living in the building. A third-year at Balliol who declined to be named said, “We were told there would be issues with light and noise (which are actually worse than was stated), but nobody warned me that I would open my curtains and frequently have several men see me in my underwear. I have to decide between feeling comfortable in my room or having the curtains open and being able to actually see what I’m doing.”last_img read more

Student peer-to-peer eco program celebrates 10-year anniversary

first_imgStudents have always been the driving force behind Harvard’s leadership on sustainability, pushing the University to establish a greenhouse gas reduction goal and launching new programs like the Harvard Community Garden.This year, one of Harvard’s most successful and widely replicated sustainability programs – the Resource Efficiency Program (REP) — celebrated its 10 year anniversary of working inside the undergraduate Houses to raise environmental awareness and engage students in eco-friendly activities.In fall 2002, John Hsu ’03, Rachelle Gould ’03, and Wendy Liu ’03 approached the Faculty of Arts & Sciences Office of Physical Resources, Harvard’s Green Campus Initiative (now Harvard Office for Sustainability), University Operations Services, and Environmental Action Committee to advocate for the creation of Harvard’s first peer-to-peer environmental education program. Their vision was to implement dorm-based ecological education programs and energy-efficiency and waste recycling measures, targeting all 6600 undergraduate students.“We wanted to steer away from gloom and doom and didn’t want to talk at students. Instead, we were striving to create a peer-to-peer program that would make people feel part of a larger social community,” said Gould when contacted earlier this year and asked to reflect on the creation of REP.last_img read more
