Japan’s growth to slow down

2019 Rugby World Cup Quarter-final: England 40-16 Australia

first_imgFarrell did the same less than ten minutes later to take England’s advantage beyond two converted tries. It was smart play – and completely at odds with Australia’s tactics.And it was those tactics that allowed England to finish with a flourish. Australia tried to launch an attack from their own 22 but Beale’s floated pass wide was picked off by Anthony Watson and the England winger had an easy run-in.Job done for England as they reach the last four of a World Cup for the first time in a dozen years. Plenty of questions to ponder for Australia and coach Michael Cheika.Star ManWhen Kyle Sinckler trudged off shortly after the hour mark, the effort he had exerted in the course of that period was evident. He had put in a shift!The England prop will, of course, be absolutely delighted with the try he scored early in the second half, picking a great line to latch onto Owen Farrell’s long pass and power over from 20-odd metres. Eddie Jones later said he “looked like a runaway rhino” when scoring. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2019 Rugby World Cup Quarter-final: England 40-16 AustraliaHead-to-HeadPlayed – 51England wins – 25Australia wins – 25Draws – 1Did you know?Jonny May won his 50th cap and became the first England player to score two tries in a World Cup knockout match since Rory Underwood and Will Carling got braces in the 1995 semi-final against New Zealand.Jordan Petaia is the first player born this century to play in a RWC knockout match and the first teenager to be selected in either of the centre positions in a World Cup.Courtney Lawes has won his last 11 matches against Australia and England have beaten Australia in their last seven matches, all played under Eddie Jones.In a nutshellEngland are through to their first World Cup semi-final since 2007 with what was, in the end, a comfortable win over Australia.The Wallabies put plenty of pace and width on the ball, but their game management was questionable. We all love to see attacking rugby, but there is a time to be pragmatic too.That is exactly the strategy that England followed – and they still outscored Australia four tries to one. Two of those came in three first-half minutes from clinical finisher Jonny May.Indoor view: A lineout during the quarter-final at Oita Stadium (Getty Images)The first was from a lineout. Neat interplay between Henry Slade, Owen Farrell, Elliot Daly and Anthony Watson took play into the Australia 22, next Manu Tuilagi made ground and then, with numbers out wide, Farrell fed Tom Curry, who delivered the scoring pass to May. He went over in the corner and Farrell converted from the touchline.The second try was created by Slade. David Pocock’s pass to Christian Lealiifano was picked off by Slade – Pocock would have been better keeping hold of the ball himself – and the England centre broke clear. With Kerevi gaining ground on him, Slade directed a delightful kick to the left and with May in pursuit there was only going to be one winner in that foot race. The winger went over in the corner again and Farrell converted again.Related: Need for speed – the value of pace in rugbyAny doubts about Jordan Petaia’s ability to play in a match at this level as a teenager had been dispelled within ten minutes as he made metres with his first touch before offloading to Kerevi.In fact, he looked dangerous every time he had the ball and was arguably the Wallabies’ best player in the first half – stepping around players on the wing, fending off Owen Farrell, linking well with players around him.Pushing on: Jordan Petaia fends off an Owen Farrell tackle (Getty Images,)Yet the Wallabies made life harder for themselves by trying to run everything, rarely putting boot to ball to clear pressure from their 22. While they spread the ball left and right fast, moves often broke down with a knock-on or turnover (England were definite winners in the battle of the breakdown). And their opportunities became fewer and further between as the game wore on.The boot of Lealiifano ensured they were well in the contest at half-time with the scores 17-9 – and they got over the whitewash early in the second half. Reece Hodge sent a lovely miss-pass into the hands of Petaia and England’s defence was caught flat-footed when Marika Koroibete burst through on the inside. Daly chased hard but the Wallaby wing had too much gas.It was a great line from Koroibete and another one quickly followed – from Kyle Sinckler. The England prop burst onto the ball on the 22 and ran in a try virtually unopposed.Australia’s ‘attack at all costs’ philosophy continued when they were awarded a kickable penalty in the 54th minute and opted to kick for the corner. From that lineout, they got another penalty in front of the posts but rather than kick for an easy three points, they went for a scrum. They made ground and got close through several phases but Sinckler then ripped the ball in contact, England cleared and the threat dissipated.Fast show: Marika Koroibete breaks through England’s defence to score (Getty Images)In contrast, when England were awarded a penalty five metres out after the Wallabies had infringed at a maul and Ben Youngs had dropped the ball over the line, Farrell opted for the posts and extended his team’s lead by another three points.

As the Wallabies sent runner after runner towards the England line, Sinckler came in as the second tackler on Isi Naisarani and stripped the ball from his grasp. England were able to clear the pressure and from that point on closed out the game to reach the last four.Related: The making of Kyle SincklerThe ReactionEngland captain Owen Farrell: “Australia made that a brilliant game. They attacked throughout, from minute one to 80. Our boys did well in defence and managed to get some field position off the back of it and we know, when we get some field position, we can be pretty dangerous. We wanted to play the game at our pace, not theirs, and thankfully we did that in the second half.”Australia coach Michael Cheika: “We went into the game looking to play our style of footy ans we just weren’t clinical enough to finish off opportunities. Sometimes you’ve just got to suck it up and wear it.”The Teams England: Elliot Daly; Anthony Watson, Henry Slade (George Ford 61), Manu Tuilagi (Jonathan Joseph 73), Jonny May; Owen Farrell (captain), Ben Youngs (Willi Heinz 73); Mako Vunipola (Joe Marler 69), Jamie George (Luke Cowan-Dickie 69), Kyle Sinckler (Dan Cole 64), Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes (George Kruis 64), Tom Curry, Sam Underhill (Lewis Ludlam 69), Billy Vunipola.Tries: May 18, 21, Sinckler 46, Watson 76.

The announcement came two years to the day after the breakthrough Paris agreement on climate change. To mark the anniversary, the French president, Emmanuel Macron, brought together the president of the World Bank, the secretary general of the United Nations, international leaders and “committed citizens from around the world” to review its implementation and discuss new ways to “address the ecological emergency for our planet.”Read the entire article here.

Architect Jean Verville explores a world where architecture, theatricality, and playfulness come together to imagine a hybrid proposal where sensory perceptions are called upon to transgress the limits of three-dimensional form, and where living spaces seem freed from their reality. Throughout the process, the clients – creators and actors Sophie Cadieux and Mani Soleymanlou – through their creativity, their mastery of the collaborative dimension inseparable from theatrical work, and their talent for improvisation, adopt the architect’s playful approach with passion, rigor, and sensitivity.Save this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesAssisted by his accomplice, architect Tania Paula Garza Rico, director of his eponymous studio, Verville creates whimsical staging, incorporating the presence of creature-allegories. In front of the photographer’s lens, the architects and their clients engage in this exercise with enthusiasm, humor, and unpredictability. With this raw material, Verville performs digital manipulation to produce images that raise questions about the illusory banality of habitability.Save this picture!Axo« An extraordinary creative experience, from the first meeting to this final staging… I constantly giggle as I look back on that day! » Mani SoleymanlouSave this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesAdopting the creative universes of its occupants, their personalities, and their particular needs as the narrative scheme, the MSO project consists of a complete volumetric reconfiguration, making it possible to generate an artistic creation as well as a living space adapted to the daily reality of the two artists and their son. Inside a narrow house, located in a Montreal residential neighborhood, a scenographic promenade unfolds to the full height of the building.Save this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesHaving to meet the needs of family life, but also subtracting them at times in order to create a work environment that strengthens concentration and creativity, the spatial reorganization conceals the functions in a succession of ordered volumes completed by ten scenic pauses. The central space, pierced by an openwork steel structure extending over twelve meters in height, abolishes the original hierarchy in a dynamic segmentation, while the monochromy of greige tones unites the whole into a monolithic entity.« At every moment we discover something new, a new cut, a new line. It’s a tremendous gift. » Sophie Cadieux « But where is my room? » OscarSave this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesAiming at an effective cohabitation of domestic and professional activities, permeability to family life, and a spatial distribution providing a level of individual privacy, the proposal takes advantage of decompartmentalization to consolidate the feeling of unification in its vertical deployment and to metamorphose the legibility of the whole. To minimize alterations to the existing building, selective subtraction of floor areas frees the core of the space to accommodate the new vertical progression, gradually unfolding over the three floors of the house in a succession of ten versatile and multifunctional platforms. These ten scenic pauses establish a new spatial organization. The metallic structure, with perforated steel surfaces and walls, is juxtaposed with a series of stages and raised platforms – sometimes it offers a small scene, and sometimes a seat – to draw fluid limits that privatize spaces while creating visual porosity.Save this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesMeeting the requirement of functional adaptability while minimizing the need for furniture, the new system of spatial organization engages unusual interactions in order to facilitate the personal and creative appropriation of the sub-spaces it shapes. Fragmented by metal screens and low walls, and punctuated meandering, the scenic pauses offer new points of view in space and new perspectives on the presence of others.Save this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesThe imposing metal assemblage, which also consolidates the project’s structural integrity, is capped with a skylight, that measures 2.5 meters by 2.5 meters, which maximizes the natural light by diffusing it to the ground floor. The light, filtered by the metal surfaces and walls, multiplies the projections of shadows cast to mark space with graphic lines, opposing their presence with the spatial boundaries, and offering a continual dance of geometric shadows that play on the monochrome canvas. Both refined and expressive, the proposal constitutes an assemblage that partitions volume and light in order to envelop the place in a mysterious aura contributing to the theatricality of the proposed experiment.Save this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectesProject gallerySee allShow lessCity Cemetery Presov – Svaby / STOA ArchitektiSelected ProjectsStockton: High Street To Be Demolished to Make Way for Riverside ParkArchitecture News Share Save this picture!Courtesy of Félix Michaud + Studio Jean Verville architectes+ 33Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957358/mso-play-pause-space-studio-jean-verville-architectes Clipboard “COPY” Year:  MSO PLAY/PAUSE Space / Studio Jean Verville architectes CopyHouses•Montreal, Canada 2020last_img read more

The distinction makes Huntington Hospital one of the top 1% of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide for its consistent, year-over-year superior clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.“To be recognized among America’s 50 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades is a tribute to our extraordinary physicians, nurses, employees and volunteers,” says Stephen A. Ralph, president and CEO, Huntington Hospital. “We will continue to provide our patients with the leading-edge capabilities of a world-class medical institution, ensuring our patients receive compassionate community care and superior clinical outcomes.”From 2012 through 2014, Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award™ recipients, as a group, had a 24.4% lower risk adjusted mortality rate across 19 procedures and conditions where in-hospital mortality was the clinical outcome, compared to all other hospitals. During this same period, if all other hospitals performed at the level of America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award™ across these 19 procedures and conditions, 164,116 lives could potentially have been saved. For example, patients treated at a hospital that has achieved the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award™ had, on average, a 22.1% lower risk of dying during their hospital stay for stroke than if treated at a hospital that did not receive the award. Also, patients treated at a hospital that has achieved the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award™ had, on average, a 28.5% lower risk of dying during their hospital stay for heart failure than if treated at a hospital that did not receive the award.Variation in hospital performance exists locally as well as nationally. Huntington Hospital is among the hospitals in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, CA area with some of the best quality care across at least 21 of 32 common inpatient conditions and procedures evaluated by Healthgrades over a period of at least 6 years.*“Our analysis shows that there is tremendous variation in care, so it’s important for consumers to carefully research and choose a hospital,” said Evan Marks, Chief Strategy Officer, Healthgrades. “We commend the recipients of the America’s 50 Best Hospital Award for delivering exceptional clinical outcomes that help them stand out from their peers in terms of overall clinical performance.”The 50 recipients of the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award™ stand out among the rest for overall clinical excellence across a broad spectrum of care. During the 2016 study period (2012-2014), these hospitals showed superior performance in clinical outcomes for patients in the Medicare population across at least 21 of 32 of the most common inpatient conditions and procedures —as measured by objective performance data (risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital complications).

In appeal, the complainant contended that High Court proceeded on a premise that in case where there is an agreement to sell and its subsequent termination for its alleged breach, such disputes are civil disputes and more so where the arbitral proceedings are pending, criminal proceedings will be an abuse of the process of the Court. “After hearing learned counsel for the parties, we are satisfied that the issue involved in the matter under consideration is not a case in which the criminal trial should have been short-circuited. The High Court was not justified in quashing the criminal proceedings in exercise of its inherent jurisdiction. The High Court has primarily adverted on two circumstances, (i) that it was a case of termination of agreement to sell on account of an alleged breach of the contract and (ii) the fact that the arbitral proceedings have been initiated at the instance of the appellants. Both the alleged circumstances noticed by the High 23 Court, in our view, are unsustainable in law. The facts narrated in the present complaint/FIR/charge-sheet indeed reveal the commercial transaction but that is hardly a reason for holding that the offence of cheating would elude from such transaction. In fact, many a times, offence of cheating is committed in the course of commercial transactions and the illustrations have been set out under Sections 415, 418 and 420 IPC”, the bench said.The bench said that to exercise powers under Section 482 CrPC, the complaint in its entirety shall have to be examined on the basis of the allegation made in the complaint/FIR/charge-sheet and the High Court at that stage was not under an obligation to go into the matter or examine its correctness.”Whatever appears on the face of the complaint/FIR/charge-sheet shall be taken into consideration without any critical examination of the same. The offence ought to appear ex facie on the complaint/FIR/charge-sheet and other documentary evidence, if any, on record…The exercise of inherent power of the High Court is an extraordinary power which has to be exercised with great care and circumspection before embarking to scrutinise the complaint/FIR/charge-sheet in deciding whether the case is the rarest of rare case, to scuttle the prosecution at its inception.”, the court added.Allowing the appeal, the bench observed that there was sufficient material available as manifests from the record of criminal proceedings to connect the accused in the commission of crime Case: Priti Saraf Vs.

Police pull guns on, spray Black-Latino Army officer during traffic stop: Lawsuit

first_imgDaniel Tadevosyan/iStock(NORFOLK, Va.) — Two Virginia police officers have been sued for allegedly drawing their guns on a uniformed Army officer during a traffic stop and spraying him with a substance. One of them has since been terminated.On Dec. 5, 2020, Windsor police officers Joe Gutierrez and Daniel Crocker pulled over U.S. Army 2nd Lt. Caron Nazario, who is Black and Latino, while he was dressed in uniform, according to the lawsuit filed April 2.They pulled him over in a newly purchased Chevrolet Tahoe SUV for not having a rear license plate, according to the lawsuit. Nazario was returning home from his duty station at the time, the lawsuit said.The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for Eastern Virginia in Norfolk, claims the officers violated Nazario’s constitutional rights and seeks compensatory and punitive damages.Police body camera footage shows the moment officers pursued Nazario, who then pulled over at a well-lit gas station.According to the report Officer Crocker submitted after the incident, Crocker said the driver was “eluding police” and he considered it to be a high-risk traffic stop.Nazario wasn’t eluding police, he was trying to stop in a well-lit area for his safety and for the officers’ safety, according to the lawsuit.Gutierrez acknowledged that Nazario’s decision to drive to a lighted area occurs “a lot … 80% of the time,” and that the maneuver informed him that Nazario was “at least 80% probability, a minority,” the lawsuit claims.The vehicle was so new Nazario hadn’t yet gotten permanent plates, but had his cardboard temporary plates taped inside the rear window of the vehicle. When officers reached inside his car, that plate was visible in the rear, the lawsuit stated.In the video footage, officers shout at Nazario to put his arms out of the window and approach him with their guns drawn.“I’m honestly afraid to get out of the car,” Nazario is heard saying in the footage.“Yeah you should be,” one officer replied.The officers then threaten to arrest him for not listening to their orders to get out of the car and for “obstruction of justice,” the video shows.“I’m actively serving this country and this is how you’re going to treat me?” Nazario says.Seconds later, an officer appears to spray him in his face with a substance in the video.Nazario kept his hands up in the air as the officers yelled at him to get out and he shut his eyes, visibly reeling from the spray.“I don’t even want to reach for my seatbelt, can you please? … My hands are out, can you please — look, this is really messed up,” Nazario says.The officers are heard shouting conflicting orders at him, telling him to put his hands out of the window while telling him to open the door and get out.At one point, Gutierrez told Nazario he was “fixin’ to ride the lightning,” according to the lawsuit. The phrase was a line from the movie The Green Mile, a film about a Black man facing execution, and references the electric chair, the lawsuit states.When he finally got out of the car the video shows the officers repeatedly telling Nazario to get on the ground and then force him down, according to the lawsuit.The officers struck Nazaro with their fists, knees and hands, forcing him onto his face and placed him in handcuffs, according to the lawsuit.The lawsuit claims the officers used this force despite not having any probable cause to believe Nazario had committed a crime. Nazario was not charged in the incident.“These cameras captured footage of behavior consistent with a disgusting nationwide trend of law enforcement officers, who, believing they can operate with complete impunity, engage in unprofessional, discourteous, racially biased, dangerous and sometimes deadly abuses of authority …” the lawsuit said.Gutierrez wrote in his report that he felt he had to choose between charging Nazario with obstruction or releasing him without any charges.“I made the decision to release him without any charges,” his report said, according to The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk . “The reason for this decision is simple; the military is the only place where double jeopardy applies. Meaning that whatever happened in civil court, the military could still take action against him. Being a military veteran, I did not want to see his career ruined over one erroneous decision.”Crocker said in his report he chose against filing charges because Nazario was active duty military and didn’t want to see his career ruined for “poor judgement.”Crocker still works for the department, according to The Virginian-Pilot. Officer Gutierrez has since been terminated, according to a statement released Sunday evening by the town of Windsor.Windsor is located about 70 miles southeast of Richmond.The Windsor Police Department did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.On Sunday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued a statement calling the incident “disturbing” and saying that it angered him. He directed the state police to conduct an independent investigation.“Our Commonwealth has done important work on police reform, but we must keep working to ensure Virginians are safe during interactions with police, the enforcement of laws is fair and equitable, and people are held accountable,” Northam said in the statement.The Virginia State Police have opened a criminal investigation into the incident, they confirmed on Twitter Sunday. In a statement released earlier Sunday, the governor and town of Windsor requested an investigation.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
