But if shareholders vote to retain some or all of the current team – plus Actelion’s two candidates, Garnier and former Schering-Plough chief financial officer Robert Bertolini – Elliott’s candidates would be blocked.Elliott’s directors – five pharma executives and a banker – also wrote to shareholders criticising Actelion’s drug pipeline and governance. Sources close to Actelion told City A.M. Elliott’s changing demands were “a moving target” for the board.

Kolisi injury not as bad as initially thought but dangerous cleanouts are in the spotlight again

first_imgTuesday Oct 27, 2020 Kolisi injury not as bad as initially thought but dangerous cleanouts are in the spotlight again The injury to Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is not as bad as it was initially feared to be, after footage of a dangerous clearout was spread online after the Super Rugby Unlocked match between the Stormers and the Pumas on Friday night.ADVERTISEMENTKolisi was on the wrong end of a cleanout at the ruck as he attempted to steal the ball, and bent back badly with the force of two players.While it looked nasty, the consensus was that it was not malicious at all and simply part of a contentious part of rugby. In the same match, Pumas number ten Eddie Fouche picked up a far more serious injury in a similar manner.What are your thoughts on these cleanouts which caused potentially serious injuries for both Siya Kolisi and Eddie Fouche?#SuperRugbyUnlocked #PUMvSTO pic.twitter.com/KuFkDMzrfh— SA Rugby magazine (@SARugbymag) October 24, 2020Former Springboks Ryan Kankowski concurred that there was nothing wrong with it.Nothing wrong at all 👌🏽— Ryan Kankowski (@Kankowski) October 25, 2020While former Cheetahs and Dragons second rower Rynard Landman was even more adamant about it.Nothing wrong with either.! Should use them for educational videos on how to clear the zone…! 👌🏼 good coaching— Rynard landman (@Toringlandman) October 24, 2020The injury sustained was a grade one hamstring tear, so Kolisi will be out of action for the next game, against the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld this coming Saturday. He may be out for up to three weeks, but the injury is not more serious than that.“Luckily, it is just a grade-one hamstring so he will be out for between two and three weeks,” John Dobson, Stormers coach said.ADVERTISEMENTFouche, who was also injured in the match, is expected to be out of action for up to nine months.“You want to encourage guys to be able to go in to steal to get the turnover, but I just think there could be more protection for the jackaler,” said Dobson.“We saw Siya getting injured from a cleanout, Bongi snapping his hamstring [previuosly], Eddie Fouche suffered a horrific injury. It is cause for a bit more inspection.“When you’re going off you feet, you do so with massive weight and momentum … it is a concern, I though the laws were going to project the jackaler more,” he added.ADVERTISEMENTWhen looking at both incidents, former Fiji Sevens coach Ben Ryan tweeted:“Here we go again….. dangerous – has and will cause premature ends to players careers.”Before being injured, Fouche was part of setting up a lovely try for the Pumas, earning them the Play of the Week.

The new holiday residential complex is situated on a hill which towers above Spotorno, nowadays a touristic town, but in origin it was a farming area (Speltrum and Spolturnum, the name comes from Latin spelt, with the suffix –urnum which designates names of plant association; the meaning is “the place where the spelt is cultivated” ).Save this picture!Courtesy of Ariu + Vallino ArchitectsThe typical cultivated terraces and a pine forest planted in late 1800 define the site. The houses grow under contamination of architectural volumes, site topography and ground altimetric pattern.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ariu + Vallino ArchitectsThe aim of the project is to find a balance among nature, architecture and the new requirements of the contemporary living. Starting from F.L. Wright’s idealism for organic architecture, revisited by European influences of the great Alvar Aalto and in Italy by APAO (association for organic architecture) by Bruno Zevi, we have tried to identify the rules of building compatible with the territory, able to interact and change with it in the course of time. The nature, in this case the park which encircles the houses, is still a baby. In the years it will grow, even changing considerably the perception of the complex. Nature is also present in the architectural finishings. The wood which covers part of the walls and the swimming pool floor is intended to age, even if thermal treated. The ageing in this case is providential and will only draw architecture closer to nature. The swimming pool in cantilever reinforced concrete, sustained by a partition represents a sort of tribute to poetry of Modern masters.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ariu + Vallino ArchitectsPresence of anthropic ratiocination is visible in the pure geometry of volumes which widen horizontally. We would image our architecture at the end of times as a ruin who gives our descendants traces, lining, brave architectural motions.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ariu + Vallino ArchitectsThis project takes care of energy conservation and use of natural resources, in compliance with the most recent Italian rules. We cannot consider it as a pure ideological eco-friendly intervention, unless we make a wider remark. It’s clear that technology and technical plants will improve their efficiency and in the same time they will be more integrated in architecture. We believe that buildings have to be pictured to resist to all challenges of progress. Consequently the new residential complex is finished with solar panels which guarantee heating of sanitary water and swimming pool. Furthermore home automation plants have been provided to control home fittings and other “smart” technologies. We are pleased to imagine substantial changes of said plants in a next future without affecting negatively on the architectural image. Such attitude is typically European and is the one which has permitted preservation of a great historic architectural heritage even imagining constant transformations all the current life long.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ariu + Vallino ArchitectsThe residential complex is composed by 30 modular units with hall, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, utility room and bathroom. All living spaces have view to the sea. Modules can be joined in case the client needs a bigger house. All the apartments have a big terrace of about m. 2,20×8,00 to be used as summer living room. Some apartments have a little private garden. All the apartments are gathered around the swimming pool and the common park. From swimming pool level it is possible to get to the beach by a private wainscotted lift.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ariu + Vallino ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessRevitalization of the City of Andenne / Frédéric Haesevoets Architecture + Art and B…ArticlesVideo: Hotel Lone / 3LHD ArchitectsArticles Share Area:  655 m² Area:  655 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2011 Italy CopyAbout this officeAriu + Vallino ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSpotornoHousingItalyPublished on November 07, 2012Cite: “Dwellings in Spotorno / Ariu + Vallino Architects” 07 Nov 2012.

The Aquarium House designed by Rubén Muedra Estudio de Arquitectura is located in a residential area of low density in the metropolitan area of Valencia, in a new expansion area in the municipality’s urban boundary. The project, which is developed in section, consists of four rectangular horizontal trays of different shape, which allow the successive levels to merge with the horizon, avoiding the appearance of limits or spaces bounded in height.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoEach of the levels responds to a group of uses related to each other, the uses being defined by level as follows, from bottom to top: Storage / Day / Night / Leisure. These spaces are delimited in floor and ceiling by each one of the horizontal trays, but they have free and irregular distribution adjusted to the needs of the own use of each space and each level.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoIn vertical, all the rooms are closed with large glazing, which allows the appropriation of contiguous exterior spaces and views without limits from each level. The continuity of interior and exterior pavement, and large windows flush with the pavement, facilitate spatial continuity.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe exterior spaces are covered and uncovered terraces depending on the case, of varying size depending on the use they serve. In addition, on the ground floor they integrate the pool, attached to the house with a large window that illuminates the basement floor, and the main porch, covered by the large overhang that makes up the second tray.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoInside, and in this order; first it was the Aquarium, and then the house came to accompany it. The day area is articulated around a beautiful open aquarium, with tropical waters and a spectacular collection of fish and corals. The rest, open spaces, related between them, without fixed limits, with continuous porcelain flooring, white walls, and indirect lighting.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoIn short, as a response to an existing context and specific needs, the project defined in section gives rise to different levels that correspond to the program of uses of housing, and that allows each space to be extended without a physical limit until the horizon.Save this picture!East ElevationSave this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoProject gallerySee allShow lessSnøhetta Designs a New Home for Ötzi the IcemanArchitecture News19 Contemporary Installations Dotted Across the Coachella Valley DesertArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910415/aquarium-house-ruben-muedra-estudio-de-arquitectura Clipboard Aquarium House / Rubén Muedra Estudio de ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveAquarium House / Rubén Muedra Estudio de Arquitectura Architects: Rubén Muedra Estudio de Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Sinai-based freelancer to be tried before military court

Arrested on 4 January, he is due to be court martialled in what is the latest of series of disturbing media freedom violations.Sabry’s wife said he was detained while filming in a military zone in Rafah for a report for Reuters about a decision by the armed forces to ban the purchase of land in the border area.Also a blogger and member of a human rights group that campaigns against the use of military courts to try civilians, Sabry was placed in detention without being able to talk to a lawyer and without his family being notified, and is scheduled to be tried before a military court tomorrow.GlobalPost Egypt correspondent Eric Cunningham, who has worked with Sabry, described him as an “independent, objective and valuable source of information in a region that is little covered by the media.”“We are very disturbed by the current situation in Egypt and the repeated violations of freedom of information of the past few weeks,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must accept criticism from journalists and other news providers or else the climate for the media will continue to worsen.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the Egyptian authorities to stop harassing journalists and news media, and we firmly condemn the use of military courts to try journalists.”Sabry’s arrest follows a series of complaints against Egyptian journalists and media, in response to which the public prosecutor’s office has started several judicial investigations despite President Mohamed Morsi’s pledge, shortly after his June 2012 election, that “no one will touch press freedom.”One of the targets is Bassem Youssef, a well-known satirist and host of a show called El-Bernameg on CBC television that mocks politicians. After a complaint accused him of insulting President Mohamed Morsi, he is being formally investigated on a charge denigrating the head of state. The president’s office has brought a complaint against the daily Al-Masri Al-Youm and one of its journalists, Yousri Al-Badri, accusing them of “spreading false news endangering public peace and security and affecting the presidency.” Doaa El-Adl, the newspaper’s cartoonist, is also being investigated because of a cartoon deemed to have offended religion.And finally, the prosecutor-general’s office has just decided to investigate Abdel Halim Qandil, the editor of the weekly Sawt El-Umma (Voice of the Nation), on a charge of insulting President Morsi. An outspoken critic of the current government, he wrote a column last October that was headlined “Morsi, you are a liar.”The targeting of journalists with complaints and judicial investigations comes at a time of great tension and even violence for Egyptian media, with the number of cases of harassment, death threats and physical attacks registered by Reporters Without Borders increasing steadily.Several news media offices in Cairo have been physically attacked, including the Al-Jazeera bureau on 21 November and the headquarters of the Egyptian daily Al-Wafd on 17 December, when a Salafist group bombarded it with stones and Molotov cocktails, injuring some of its journalists.Newspaper reporter Al-Hosseini Abu Deif’s death must also not be forgotten. Deif died after being targeted by Morsi supporters and hit by a rubber bullet fired a close ranger while covering clashes outside the presidential palace in the early hours of 6 December,Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for an investigation into the circumstances of his death and for those responsible to be severely punished.

Attorneys for the remaining three defendants moved to dismiss the indictment.In June 2019, U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney dismissed the indictment against the men and withdrew Laube’s guilty plea, finding that the prosecution brought under the act was “unconstitutionally overbroad in violation of the First Amendment.”Carney wrote in his ruling that the Anti-Riot Act goes well beyond criminalizing the behavior of those acting in the midst of a riot. “It also criminalizes acts taken long before any crowd gathers,” or acts that have only a slight connection to violence, according to Carney.“No violence even need to occur,” the judge wrote. “A defendant could be convicted for renting a car with a credit card, posting about a political rally on Facebook, or texting friends about when to meet up.”In its opinion, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Carney’s dismissal, finding that provisions of the Anti-Riot Act are, in fact, constitutional.The panel wrote that “the freedoms to speak and assemble which are enshrined in the First Amendment are of the utmost importance in maintaining a truly free society. Nevertheless, it would be cavalier to assert that the government and its citizens cannot act, but must sit quietly and wait until they are actually physically injured or have had their property destroyed by those who are trying to perpetrate, or cause the perpetration of, those violent outrages against them.”The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles had no immediate response.The four suspected RAM members — Eason, of Anza in Riverside County; Laube, of Redondo Beach; Rundo, of Huntington Beach; and Boman, of Torrance — were initially charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit rioting and travel with intent to riot. Each of the two counts carry sentences of up to five years in federal prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.In October 2018, federal authorities arrested four other suspected RAM members, including alleged RAM founder Ben Daley, of Redondo Beach. He and three others pleaded guilty in federal court in Virginia to the conspiracy count in connection with their suspected roles in the deadly 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
