Face-off: Should Scotland have a third professional team?

first_img Third element: Chris Cusiter passes for Borders Reivers in 2006, a year before they were disbanded (Inpho) Only very recently have the SRU been able to fund two teams to a level where both are challenging for knockout rugby in the Guinness Pro14 and Europe.There are many reasons why a third team would benefit Scotland, but there’s a single big one to explain why it hasn’t happened. The combined playing budgets of Edinburgh and Glasgow account for north of £12m per year and, with myriad other costs, the SRU simply don’t have the resources to start up and then maintain a new outfit to a degree where it wouldn’t become another Border Reivers.Not cheap: Edinburgh and Glasgow cost a lot to run, so could the SRU stretch to another team? (Inpho)Before the plug was pulled in 2007, the Netherdale side’s struggles showed how hard it is to create something meaningful, even in a region with such rich rugby heritage. The SRU’s poor marketing and limited commercial clout didn’t help.While modern Murrayfield scores higher on those counts, investors haven’t been clamouring to build them a new team, new venue or both.Things could change with CVC’s cash, but for now the player pathway focus is on the ‘part-time professional’ Super6. Face-off: Should Scotland have a third professional team?ROB ROBERTSONRugby Correspondent for the Scottish Daily MailThe pathway to the top for young amateur players in Scotland is far too narrow with just two pro teams. Too many have to leave the country for the lower leagues in France or England to find a higher standard. Sadly, some stop playing in their teens due to lack of opportunities.Geographically, it’s a disgrace that Scotland’s only two teams are based in Glasgow and Edinburgh – cities just 47 miles apart. There is huge interest in other parts of Scotland, such as Aberdeen and Dundee. Either one needs to be the base for a third club.Scot abroad: Gloucester lock Alex Craig is one young talent playing outside the country (Getty Images)The Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) claim to not have the money for a third professional team and as a halfway house have set up a semi-pro league, the Super6. Three clubs are in Edinburgh and one each in the Borders, Ayr and Stirling. Vast areas are overlooked. Aberdeen and Dundee miss out again.The creation of a third professional team to give young players all over Scotland – especially those outwith the central belt – a better chance of making the grade in their own country first and foremost is long overdue.MARK PALMERScottish Rugby Correspondent for The Sunday Times Scottish rugby has operated with just two pro teams for more than a decade, a situation some argue is hampering player development.

BBC cameraman takes a tumble on the sideline

first_imgTuesday Mar 1, 2011 BBC cameraman takes a tumble on the sideline If you watched France take on England at Twickehham on the weekend you probably will have noticed this amusing moment from the second half of the game, where a sideline cameraman had a bit of a slip-up in front of 80 000 people.It would have been worse – it could have hit him in the head. That’s actually what I thought happened at first, but as you can see in the replays, the poor guy was so padded because of the weather that just by reaching his arm out to attempt to catch the ball, he lost his footing.Actually something similar happened to Schalk Burger a few years ago in a Test match, when he was retrieving a ball that had gone into touch and slipped on the small section between the grass and the advertising hoardings. This seems to be what happened here.Luckily for Schalk, he didn’t have the weight of a massive tv production camera bearing down on him. This guy handled it well though, although a bit shaken, he popped up, dusted himself off and after a few minutes of checking for bruises to both himself and the camera, returned to action.If you spotted any other funny moments on the weekend that you think could be shared, get in touch and we’ll see what can be done to get the clips on the site. For now, this was one of the most requested from the weekend so even though it’s just a quick one, it’s worth sharing.

Cumquat Tree House / Megowan Architectural

first_imgArchDaily CopyHouses, Extension•Caulfield, Australia Architects: Megowan Architectural Area Area of this architecture project Australia 2015 Projects “COPY” Photographs:  Nils KoenningSave this picture!© Nils KoenningText description provided by the architects. In this renovation to an Art Deco home in the leafy Melbourne suburb of Caulfield, the interiors of the existing house were reordered to create a new central spine which culminates by framing a view of an existing and prolific cumquat tree at the rear of the property. Save this picture!Courtesy of Christopher MegowanKey to the success of this design was the creation of two outdoor rooms which straddle the living and dining spaces of the home.  To the east, a decked “room” has been designed to not only allow northern light into the rear extension but also transform into an outdoor cinema through the clever integration of a double-sided projector screen in the window opening of the internal home theatre. To the west, a second and larger outdoor “room” connects to the living spaces via a large bifold door and double sided indoor/outdoor fireplace.Save this picture!Floor PlanA substantial polished concrete island bench anchors the kitchen to the living areas, serving as a transition point between the two outdoor spaces. The play on room interfaces is continued between the kitchen and rear butler’s pantry with a retractable glass splashback providing an efficient means of screening the service area.Save this picture!Courtesy of Christopher MegowanThe heaviness of the island bench is balanced by raised ceilings and continuous clerestory windows to the north, east and west which allow ample northern light deep into the living spaces throughout the day.  Additional features include large pocketing sliders throughout the house which allow the dwelling to be zoned for both flexibility of use and heating and cooling. Save this picture!Courtesy of Christopher MegowanThe Art Deco influence of the original home is referenced in the “toothed” brick driveway and paving, with orange-hued timber accents drawing a connection to the original terracotta and brick accents both inside and out. Save this picture!Courtesy of Christopher MegowanThe colour of the cost effective, yet striking sheet metal cladding at the rear is referenced in the guttering and spouting of the original home at the front.  These palette references allow for a dialogue to exist between old and new and ultimately allow the renovations to stitch into the original structure in a contemporary yet complementary way.Project gallerySee allShow lessHIGO / nA Nakayama ArchitectsSelected ProjectsShortlist Announced for the Wienerberger Brick Award 2016Misc Share “COPY” Houses Year:  Area:  240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeMegowan ArchitecturalOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionCaulfieldAustraliaPublished on December 11, 2015Cite: “Cumquat Tree House / Megowan Architectural” 10 Dec 2015.

Call for release of lawyer who defended bloggers and free expression activists

first_imgNews June 15, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for release of lawyer who defended bloggers and free expression activists Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today called on Vietnam to immediately release the lawyer Le Cong Dinh, author of many pro-democracy articles and a known human rights activist, who was arrested two days ago.The 41-year-old lawyer, who has defended several bloggers and free expression activists, is facing a long prison sentence for his articles and commentaries in the Vietnamese press and online.He was arrested on 13 June 2009 for allegedly “plotting to overthrow the government”, according to Vietnamese journalists who spoke to Reporters Without Borders. Le has no political affiliation but writes regularly about human rights.The police told the press that he would be charged under Article 88 of the criminal law that punishes the distribution of news and information hostile to the state. The lawyer is charged with using the trials of some of his clients to damage the state and to have “colluded with foreign-based and internal reactionaries to sabotage the Vietnamese state”.Deputy director general of the public security department, Vu Hai Trieu, said he had collected “a lot documents and evidence showing attempts to overthrow the Vietnamese state”.Several sources said his arrest could be linked to a complaint laid by several Vietnamese lawyers against the head of government Nguyen Tan Dung about the granting of a bauxite mine concession to a Chinese company, a case which has caused an outcry in Vietnam.“In a state which applies the rule of law, a lawyer defending his clients has the right to make facts public before a court and in the press. We fear that this arrest is aimed at punishing a respected man who promotes the cause of the rule of law in Vietnam”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“After intimidating journalists working for the liberal press and the Catholics, the government is now attacking lawyers, the final bulwark in the defence of freedoms,” it said.Le Cong Dinh has defended lawyers and bloggers Nguyen Van Dai and Le Thi Cong Nhan, and the renowned blogger Dieu Cay.Sign the petition to go further Organisation Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison RSF_en April 27, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News April 7, 2021 Find out more VietnamAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on Vietnam Receive email alerts VietnamAsia – Pacific April 22, 2021 Find out more Newslast_img read more

Agency First-Time Buyer Mortgage Risk Continues Upward Move

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Agency First-Time Buyer Mortgage Risk Continues Upward Move Agency First-Time Buyer Mortgage Risk Continues Upward Move Previous: Single-Family Built-for-Rent Market is on the Rise Next: Are Legacy HELOC Borrowers at Significant Risk of Default? The risk on Agency first-time buyer mortgages is rising while the disparity in risk between Agency first-time buyers and repeat buyers is growing wider, according to the AEI International Center on Housing Risk’s First-Time Buyer Mortgage Risk Index (FBMRI) for January 2016 released Monday.The Agency FBMRI provides an estimate of the share of Agency first-time buyer mortgages that would default if the economy were to suffer adverse conditions similar to those during the 2007 and 2008 financial crisis. In January 2016, the FBMRI increased over-the-year by 0.7 percentage points up to 15.7 percent and is 6 percentage points higher than the Agency risk index for repeat buyers. The gap between the two continues to grow wider, according to AEI.More than half (54 percent) of first-time buyer loans in January were high risk, meaning they had an MRI higher than 12 percent. That share jumped by 2 percentage points over-the-year, up from 52 percent in January 2015.Risk layering is largely responsible for the higher risk for first-time buyer mortgages, according to AEI. In January, 70 percent of first-time buyer mortgages had a combined LTV ratio of 95 percent or higher and 97 percent of the mortgages had a 30-year term. The combination of a low down payment and slow amortization assures that these first-time buyers will have little equity for many years, barring substantial home price appreciation.“The gap between first-time buyer and repeat buyer mortgage risk levels now stands at 5.92 percentage points compared to 4.91 and 4.64 percentage points in December 2014 and 2013 respectively,” said Edward Pinto, codirector of the AEI International Center on Housing Risk. “In a seller’s market, risk layering artificially pushes up prices, particularly for entry-level buyers; the result is a wealth transfer from buyers to sellers of these homes.”Another contributor to riskier first-time buyer mortgages is the fact that one-fifth of first-time buyers had a credit score lower than 660, which is the traditional definition of subprime mortgages. Also, one-fourth of first-time buyers had total DTI ratios higher than 43 percent, which is the limit set by the Qualified Mortgage rule.Mortgages taken out by repeat buyers were less risky because a much smaller share of repeat buyers had a CLTV higher than 95 percent, and a smaller share of repeat buyers had a FICO score lower than 660.The Agency First-Time Buyer Share Index (FBMSI), which measures the percentage of primary owner-occupied home purchase mortgages with a government guarantee, increased by only 0.1 percentage points over the year in January, from 56.0 percent to 56.1 percent. AEI attributes this largely to delayed closings brought on by the TRID rule, which went into effect on October 3, 2015.“On a year-over-year basis, the first-time buyer share increased only modestly in January, with the rise likely suppressed by the implementation of TRID,” Pinto said.  “Once this impact abates we expect the housing market, particularly at the entry-level, to exhibit strong demand, in combination with shortness of supply, which will continue to drive home prices up faster than incomes and inflation.” Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Shooting reclassified to homicide after Chicago man dies 9 years later from wounds

first_imgiStock(CHICAGO) — Chicago police reclassified a 9-year-old shooting case as a homicide Monday after a man succumbed to his gunshot wounds last week.Marco Rainge, 41, was shot multiple times in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood back on Oct. 12, 2010, according to the Cook County Medical examiner’s office. Although he was in critical condition following the incident, he survived shots to the arm, chest and hip, according to the police.Rainge was allegedly uncooperative with officers and no arrests were made, a police spokesman said in a statement. Rainge died on Jan. 14 from those injuries, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office, which conducted an autopsy Sunday.Chicago police said they were now investigating the incident as a homicide instead of an aggravated battery case. As of Monday afternoon, they had made no arrests or named any suspects. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Capgemini cuts 450 jobs as Revenue & Customs shrinks IT contract

first_img HR consulting and outsourcing firm Capgemini is to axe 450 jobs following after HM Revenue & Custom’s (HMRCs) decision to reduce the scale of an IT contract with the firm.The company, which provides a range of services to the public and private sectors, said its ‘Aspire’ IT services contract was being scaled back as a result of government efficiency savings.Offices in Newcastle and Basingstoke are to close with the loss of 139 jobs. Chief executive David Boulter said details regarding redundancies at other Aspire sites were in the process of being finalised.The Aspire deal was one of the world’s largest IT outsourcing deals when it was awarded in 2004 and constituted one of the largest contracts in IT outsourcing history.“Capgemini is working with outplacement service providers to support all staff affected by the closure and help them to explore other employment opportunities,” Boulter said.Last month the French-owned company announced a 13% increase in revenue last year to euros 870m (£656m).
