Cheslin Kolbe’s electric slalom run sets up great try for Toulouse

first_imgWednesday Aug 29, 2018 Cheslin Kolbe’s electric slalom run sets up great try for Toulouse Toulouse flyer Cheslin Kolbe has somehow snuck under the radar of Springbok selectors. Much like his old mate and near clone, Gio Aplon, his size seems to play a role in that. This past weekend he showed yet again what he is capable of though, as he tore the Lyon defence to shreds. Yoann Huget was the eventual recipient of his great play, as the 24-year-old sliced through Lyon to set up the only try of the match for Toulouse.Lyon’s new import Charlie Ngatai kicked the ball down field, but with few players chasing in support, little maestro Kolbe had plenty of space to work his magic,He actually beat Ngatai with a brilliant swerve and step too.The game ended in a 16-16 draw, so this try helped Toulouse to not suffer an opening round loss.Springbok fans have called for his inclusion at Test level, but as of now, he is still uncapped.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

URBAN SETTING AND PROJECT The proposed building rises eight floors above the ground along one of the limits of the block imposed by the urban planning. The great scale of the building acts like a visual screen for the green area that stands aside, physically protecting it. The volume, specifically fixed according to the rigid city-planning rules that prevail within the scope of the PAU de Vallecas, as well as the optimization of the space to obtain the estimated amount of apartments, drove us to respect the enveloped volume determined in the planning, using another series of tools to give a new urban approach to the intervention. On the ground floor, the apartments are oriented towards the later green area, whereas towards the official facade and the hustle and bustle common of a commercial street, the commercial premises and the three accesses (garage and pedestrian) are placed.

The facade crystallizes through open celled polycarbonate panels fixed on an aluminum substructure, creating a sustainable and recyclable skin. These panels achieve, through gradation of tones and brightness, combined with a substrate of neutral color determined by the outer shell of the facade, the right combination of both materials in order to make the entire façade to vibrate, entering in resonance with that light so characteristic on the city of Madrid. Save this picture!In the inside, a courtyard flanked with access galleries provides the apartments with light and crossed ventilation, two facts that in this way would let them become open to two opposed facades. The light galleries made out of steel wind through the inner void and optimize the ratio of vertical access cores on each floor. At the same time they grant renewed aesthetic qualities, as well as hygiene and salubrity to the common space of relation. A translucent polycarbonate ceiling is settled like linen cloths that illuminate the accesses to the apartments. The slim stairs are solved extending out from these galleries in an overhang which jumps in the air connecting each floor. Save this picture!The hall area is emphasized like a compressed access space, by means of generous terraces, finished with vitreous mosaic, prepared for the installation of the mailboxes and illuminated with a network of lights-skylight in the ceiling. Save this picture!2. PROGRAM It is about one promotion of 123 houses of Social housing, 2 businesses and 4 underground floors for garage, to be solved in a quarter of a block. In order to save space, we propose just two vertical communication cores located at the ends of the inner courtyard. The apartments are grouped around this patio, being accessed through steel footbridges. The units prepared for handicapped people are placed on the ground floor looking out towards the green area, whereas in the main façade, access hall and garage find their place, as well as the commercial premises. Save this picture!3. STRUCTURAL SOLUTION A mixed structural solution in concrete and steel is considered. The main body of the building is solved in reinforced concrete, whereas the circulation system of galleries and the stairs which carry vertical connection inserted in the inner patio are solved in steel, including the accompanying pavements of galvanized steel plate.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessArt Museum / KSP Engel und Zimmermann ArchitektenArticlesCanada Pavillion for Shanghai Expo 2010ArticlesProject locationAddress:Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. May 23, 2019 942 Views Home / Daily Dose / Latest Look at Housing Trends Tagged with: New Homes Prices Sales New home sales were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 673,000 in April 2019, 6.9% below March’s estimate but 7.0% higher year over year, according to the latest joint release from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The median sales price of new houses sold in April 2019 was $342,200, and the average sales price was $393,700.Genworth Mortgage Insurance Chief Economist Tian Liu notes that the below-average data is not all bad news. Liu notes that the homebuilding season is still progressing well.“New home sales for April came in below expectations. This does not necessarily mean that the spring home selling season is not going well for homebuilders,” Liu said in a statement. “Instead, homebuilders may be taking advantage of the lower interest rates and surging buyer interests by raising prices.  As a result, sales volume came in slightly below expectations.  The spring selling season is still progressing well for homebuilders, as the run rate for the year to date is still ahead of last year’s level.”According to Chief Economist Danielle Hale, April’s data indicates potential increases later in the year.“This trend supports the fact that even though there will be ups and downs, lower mortgage rates have started to entice buyers this spring and will likely lead to an eventual pick up in existing home sales in the months to come,” Hale said. “We could see further improvement in new construction over the next year as home building still remains behind population and job growth in most areas. Strength in orders has already boosted builder confidence, as well as new construction.  The median new home sales price, which had moderated the past few months, picked up as we see an increase of sales in the median and higher price tiers.”LendingTree Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze notes that new home sales data is “always messy.”  Kapfidze notes that sales fell despite interest rates moving lower and aiding affordability.“The Census Bureau notes in the release that ‘it takes 6 months to establish a trend for new houses sold’ as they are among the most volatile and revision prone economic data series,” Kapfidze said. “At LendingTree we prefer the 3-month average to balance timeliness with information value. The 3-month average of 688,000 is the highest since the financial crisis.”Inventory declined in April as well, and Kapfidze notes that the decline from 7.4 months supply in December to 5.9 in April may lead to price pressures.“A lack of supply for lower valued homes may also be contributing to the mix of homes sold including more homes above $500,000,” he states.

Dissent in Delhi Jal Board : The Constitution bench decision of the Supreme Court in Bir Singh v. Delhi Jal Board (was that the rule of Pan India Reservation that prevails in the National Capital Territory of Delhi is very much in agreement with the Constitutional scheme relating to service under the Union and the States/Union Territories.The major issue of the case was that,”Whether a person belonging to a Scheduled Caste in relation to a particular State would be entitled or not, to the benefits or concessions allowed to Scheduled Caste candidate in the matter of employment, in any other State?”Dissenting from the majority judgment, she observed. “‘If the reservation to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are to be extended to all categories of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes all over India or to the migrants then there is every possibility of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes of other developed States and Union Territories squandering reservations to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes who are disadvantaged in the respective States/Union Territories including Union Territory of Delhi”Nirbhaya Case: Justice Banumathi was also part of the bench which decided the 2017 Nirbhaya Judgment, in which the supreme court upheld the Death penalty of convicts in Nirbhaya Rape and Death Case. The “incident shocks collective conscience of the society”, is what she commented on the Nirbhaya Incident. Justice Banumathi wrote a separate but concurring decision.”In the present case, there is not even a hint of hesitation in my mind with respect to the aggravating circumstances outweighing the mitigating circumstances and I do not find any justification to convert the death sentence imposed by the courts below to ‘life imprisonment for the rest of the life’. The gruesome offences were committed with highest viciousness. Human lust was allowed to take such a demonic form. The accused may not be hardened criminals; but the cruel manner in which the gang-rape was committed in the moving bus; iron rods were inserted in the private parts of the victim; and the coldness with which both the victims were thrown naked in cold wintery night of December, shocks the collective conscience of the society. The present case clearly comes within the category of ‘rarest of rare case’ where the question of any other punishment is ‘unquestionably foreclosed’. If at all there is a case warranting award of death sentence, it is the present case. If the dreadfulness displayed by the accused in committing the gang-rape, 427 unnatural sex, insertion of iron rod in the private parts of the victim does not fall in the ‘rarest of rare category’, then one may wonder what else would fall in that category. On these reasoning recorded by me, I concur with the majority in affirming the death sentence awarded to the accused persons”, observed by Justice Banumathi in Nirbhaya Case.She was also led the bench which decided the various petitions filed by the death row convicts challenging the death warrant and rejection of mercy petitions.On March 20, few hours before the scheduled execution of the convicts, a bench led by Justice Banumathi held a mid-night hearing to consider the last-minute plea by convict Pawan Kumar against the rejection of mercy petition.At the end of a dramatic hearing, at about 3.30 AM, the bench dismissed the plea, observing that there were no grounds to interfere with the President’s order within the limited powers of judicial review.Conservation of paddy land : In a notable decision which tightened the curbs on conversion of paddy land in Kerala, a division Bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justice V.Gopala Gowda and Justice Banumathi in The Revenue Divisional Officer v. Jalaja Dileep & Anr ruled that HC has no power to direct authorities to change entries in basis tax register, ignoring the data bank prepared under the Paddy Land Act.Patent illegality a ground to set aside foreign arbitral awardIn a recent notable decision, a bench led by her held that patent illegality was a ground available to set aside foreign arbitral award.Constitution Bench judgment in tax exemption caseJustice Banumathi was part of the Constitution Bench in Commissioner of Customs (Import), Mumbai vs. M/s. Dilip Kumar and Company, which ruled that exemption notifications should be interpreted strictly and that the burden of proving applicability would be on the assessee to show that his case comes within the parameters of the exemption clause or exemption notification.Venue-Seat conundrum in arbitrationIn a judgment which attracted widespread debate for adding to the confusion of ‘venue-seat’ conundrum in arbitration law, Justice Banumathi-led bench held that only the High Court which has jurisdiction over the ‘venue’ can entertain the petition seeking appointment of Arbitrator.  In this case, Brahmani River Pellets Limited vs. Kamachi Industries Limited, the bench overturned the finding of the High Court that Courts at both the ‘seat’ and ‘venue’ of the arbitration will have concurrent jurisdiction.
