Philippe Saint-Andre uses stability as France’s new watchword

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS New wave: Teddy Thomas is one of France’s most exciting widemen (Pic INPHO) The French team powered past Scotland without ever reaching the heights, but Philippe Saint-Andre has only made one change to face Ireland. Should Joe Schmidt be worried? Just the one change for France for the trip to Dublin on Saturday, and once again Philippe Saint-Andre has caught us off-guard. With Alexander Menini injured in the dour 15-8 win over Scotland, PSA has decided to hand a first start to Racing Metro loosehead Eddy Ben Arous, the 24-year-old who won his first cap off the bench against New Zealand two years ago. Most pundits had expected veteran Clermont prop Vincent Debaty to get the nod on the loosehead with a recall for Nicolas Mas on the tighthead. Mas once again isn’t required in the squad with PSA keeping faith with Rabah Slimani, the Stade Francais prop who didn’t convince at scrum-time against Scotland.In selecting such an inexperienced front-row (just ten starts between the props and hooker Guilhem Guirado) PSA has gambled. It ranks as arguably the most mobile French front-row in recent memory, with all three good ball carriers, but it’s not a unit that will strike the fear of God into the Irish scrum. Which suggests PSA and Yannick Bru, the France forwards’ coach, having reviewed the tape of Ireland’s stodgy win over Italy, don’t rate the Irish eight very highly.Pack-spirit: Uini Atonio is supported by Bernard Le Roux and Camille Lopez in a physical encounter (Pic INPHO)Why leave Mas out of the squad, and Debaty on the bench, if you’re even slightly concerned about struggling at scrum-time? Ben Arous’s inclusion also points to French concerns at the breakdown, an area where they were inferior to Scotland on Saturday, especially in the first half. With Ben Arous in the side France will have have almost a fourth back-rower.Because of Scotland’s dominance at the ruck zone, Rory Kockott didn’t enjoy the easiest of rides on his first start for France. The Castres– scrum-half did what he could with the scrappy possession that came his way, but many French fans have been demanding a recall for Morgan Parra. Wisely, PSA has ignored the popular choice and, having gone through 14 half-back combinations in his three years in charge, he’s shown some rare continuity.Kockott is a class player but for that quality to shine he needs greater protection from his pack. Questions remain about the balance in the back-row, and whether flankers Bernard Le Roux and Thierry Dusautoir, while world-class tacklers, are good enough on the deck at this level. Dusautoir once was, but that was before age and injury took their toil. Then there’s No 8 Damien Chouly, a player who’s always looked more comfortable wearing 6. How France could do with a ball-carrying bullock at the base of the scrum like England’s Billy Vunipola.Waning powers: There are even question marks over the legendary Thierry Dusautoir and his ability on the deck (Pic INPHO)England’s riches in the engine row must also been the envy of France. Deprived through injury of Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Ed Slater and Geoff Parling, coach Stuart Lancaster can still rely on Dave Attwood and the find of the season, George Kruis, to slot in effortlessly.center_img France have no such spring-heeled  young athletes in their squad and against Scotland Pascal Pape looked all of his 34 years. Alongside him, Yoann Maestri is a mountain of a man, but he’s one-paced and lacks the explosive ferocity of a Paul O’Connell or Jonny Gray. The trouble is, France have terrifyingly few options at lock other than the gargantuan but limited Romain Taofifenua. This shortage of homegrown second rows was evident on the opening day of the Top 14 season when of the 28 locks who started, only half were French, and of that number only eight were under 30.As if to underline the dearth, on the opening round of the Champions Cup in October three of the French clubs – Toulon, Castres and Racing – fielded no France-qualified locks, while the other three – Clermont, Montpellier and Toulouse- contained just three between them.Out on his own: Camille Lopez appears to have rubberstamped the 10 spot due to his kicking (Pic INPHO)But for French fans it’s not the pack that depresses them but their threequarters, and their inability to play like, well, Frenchmen. Fly-half Camille Lopez was voted Man of the Match against Scotland, and he did kick all his side’s points, but as the catalyst for his backline he was far from impressive. For Clermont he plays close to the gain line, for France he’s standing 10 metres behind it, so deep that Scotland’s defence had no trouble lining up Mathieu Bastauread as he lumbered  upfield. It was so slow, so predictable and unless Lopez plays flatter in Dublin the Irish defence will have little problem containing France’s midfield. Frankly, the French public have had enough of PSA’s ponderous predictability, as evidenced by a letter published in Monday’s Midi Olympique. Letter? It was actually more a ‘cri de coeur’ from a Frenchman writing in ‘weariness, sadness and also a little anger to see French rugby so badly represented, so badly played’. And Monsieur Miserable had a message for the Irish: Sleep soundly, you’ve nothing to fear.Prediction: Having tipped France to win the Six Nations, I can’t back out now! France to win but only if their pack subdue the Irish at the breakdown, allowing Kockott cleaner ball and allowing Lopez to play closer to the gain line. That’s a big ‘If’…last_img read more

A family house named K2 was built in the village of Kyncelova near Banska Bystrica. On the neighbouring site, there is a house called “Dom Zlomu” which was also designed by our studio. The K2 House is occupied by an elderly couple whilst the neighbouring house which was built earlier is occupied by their children and grandchildren. Multiple generations can thus enjoy privacy of their own living space whilst sharing common external areas. While designing the K2 House, the aim was not to create a supplement to an earlier built construction but a fully-fledged house with an independent and tailored concept. Save this picture!© Branislav HovorkaWhen designing K2, we considered the shape of the terrain and owners’ requirements and decided for a spatial concept of the construction rising in the terrain, in the direction from the street to the garden. This concept is reflected in the interior layout with two one-flight staircases which bridge the difference in elevation between the street side entrance area and the garden part of the lot, forming three independent levels. Stair flights are clearly expressed in the outer dynamic shape of the building creating its untypical form when viewed from the street. The division of the building into three levels allows to meet the client´s requirement to separate thoroughly the study room from the main living area of the house making it sound-proof and independent as it is often used as a guest room.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFreundorf Villa / Project A01Selected ProjectsMilson Island Indoor Sports Stadium / Allen Jack+Cottier ArchitectsSelected Projects Share photographs:  Branislav HovorkaPhotographs:  Branislav Hovorka+ 33 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/477313/house-k2-pauliny-hovorka-architekti Clipboard Year: last_img read more

Justice for Samuel Harrell!

first_imgA “beat-up squad” of up to 20 prison guards killed Samuel Harrell on April 21 at Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon, N.Y., charge his family and community supporters. They are seeking justice for this 30-year-old African-American prisoner.No charges have yet been filed against any officers involved in this atrocity. No guard has even been suspended or put on leave. The “beat-up squad” members are still on the job.Members of “Hudson Valley Black Lives Matter,” along with other area residents, marched with Harrell’s relatives to the office of Dutchess County District Attorney William Grady in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., on Aug. 27 to demand the arrest, indictment and conviction of those responsible for Harrell’s death.Demonstrators held a banner saying “#Justice for Samuel Harrell” and blocked traffic. Some held signs naming DA Grady and guards implicated in the assault. A rally was held across from Grady’s office. Some protesters circled the building while others blocked the entrance.Diane Harrell, the slain prisoner’s spouse, said: “Sam was murdered by a group of men who used their positions of power in the prison to act out their rage. I cannot bear the thought of my husband’s last few minutes of life. I know he felt excruciating pain. I can promise that we will not rest until there is justice for Sam.”And Margaret Kwateng of the Hudson Valley BLM, which organized the demonstration, stressed, “What is left to investigate? … If Bill Grady doesn’t press homicide charges, he will not only be condoning the continued terrorizing of current inmates at the hands of a known gang of violent corrections officers, but condoning racist violence in prisons in general.” (Huffington Post, Aug. 27)Natajah Roberts of “Citizen Action New York” said: “Many inmates who saw [Harrell’s killing] have been threatened … put in solitary and … told not to say anything about what they saw. We are here to demand justice and specifically to demand that the DA file homicide charges.” (Radio station WAMC, Aug. 28)After the demonstration, Grady announced that his office will investigate Harrell’s death together with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.Death ruled a ‘homicide’Harrell’s relatives say that his bipolar mental illness contributed to his confusion on April 21, when he mistakenly expected his family to pick him up to take him home. As he got ready to leave, guards attacked him. They claimed he had smoked synthetic marijuana and was behaving erratically.However, the Orange County medical examiner found cuts and bruises on Harnell’s body — and no illegal drugs in his system. His death was ruled a “homicide.” State prison officials have released little information about the fatal assault.The New York Times extensively investigated the massive attack on Harrell, reporting on Aug. 18 that he “was thrown to the floor and was handcuffed. As many as 20 officers — including members of a group known around the prison as the Beat-Up Squad — repeatedly kicked and punched Mr. Harrell … with some of them shouting racial slurs, according to more than a dozen inmate witnesses.”Edwin Pearson said, “Like he was a trampoline, they were jumping on him.” Inmates saw Harrell “thrown or dragged down a staircase.” One prisoner saw him lying on the landing, “bent in an impossible position.”Attorneys for Harrell’s family have received 19 affidavits and letters from inmate eyewitnesses. None state that Harrell fought back or even talked to his assailants. They name nine officers who participated in the attack and the ranking officer on duty at the time — Sgt. Joseph Guarino — who has often been sued for brutality.Inmates who saw the horrific beating have been put into solitary confinement and threatened with violence after speaking to Harrell’s lawyers, relatives or journalists.‘Pervasive culture of abuse’The blog of the Correctional Association of New York, a prisoner-advocacy group, cites its 2013 report documenting “harassment and provocation” in the building in which Harrell was killed. On Aug. 18, the website condemned “the pervasive culture of violence and abuse perpetrated by Department of Correction and Community Supervision and the attempted cover-up — this time at Fishkill. The homicide of 30-year-old Samuel Harrell on April 21 by Fishkill prison guards is a reminder that the entire prison system is out of control and irreparably broken.”Other revelations about brutality in New York state prisons have recently come to light. In June, when two prisoners escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., other inmates were put into solitary confinement and tortured by prison guards trying to extract information.These horrific incidents once again expose the intrinsically racist, oppressive and brutal system of mass incarceration. In demanding justice for Samuel Harrell and all victims of racist police violence, it is essential to call for the uprooting of the entire prison system. It is a cornerstone of the capitalist state, whose mission is to use force and violence to maintain capitalist exploitation of the working class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Air waves against bullets – indigenous radios stations in Cauca

first_img Receive email alerts to go further RSF_en Colombia’s indigenous peoples will today hold another day of solidarity and collective action, called a Minga, continuing those held in 2004 and 2008. The watchword for today’s activities is “Defence of Mother Earth, 520 years of resistance.” Reporters Without Borders has chosen this day to release a report and video of the joint visit that its Colombian correspondent, Fabiola León Posada, and the Italian documentary filmmaker Simone Bruno made to the department of Cauca at the end of last month.Video: Reporters Without Borders previously visited representatives of community radio stations affiliated to the Cauca Indigenous Regional Council (CRIC) in 2010. The reason for this return visit was concern about these radio stations, especially as clashes between government forces and the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) have gained in intensity again since early July. The community radio stations play a key role in maintaining social cohesion and the indigenous cultural heritage. They also help overcome the isolation of the different population groups that are caught in the crossfire of Colombia’s interminable civil ware and are stigmatized by both sides.Two of these community radio stations – Jambaló-based Voces de Nuestra Tierra and Toribío-based Nasa Estéreo – recently had to suspend operations. In the case of Voces de Nuestra Tierra, it was because its antenna was destroyed. The station’s presenters and reporters described the incident to us.Far from being collateral victims of the civil war, the indigenous population is often targeted. The threat has increased with the 28 July promise by two paramilitary groups, the Black Eagles and the Rastrojos, to carry out a major “social cleansing” in the north of the department. It was these mercenaries of terror who may have been responsible for community leader and radio presenter Rodolfo Maya Aricape’s murder in front of his family on 14 October 2010, a crime that is still unpunished. ColombiaAmericas Reports ColombiaAmericas News News Organisation Help by sharing this information center_img RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Follow the news on Colombia 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia News April 27, 2021 Find out more Amid an increase in clashes in Cauca directly effecting indigenous community media, Reporters Without Borders continues to call for:- Assistance by the Colombia state and the international community – to which Reporters Without Borders intends to contribute, within the limits of its resources – for the reconstruction of community media hit by the fighting.- Protection for the media used by the indigenous communities and for all the other spaces where they meet.- A ceasefire and protection for the civilian population away from the fighting.Summary of the reportThe Reporters Without Borders report (which can be read in full in Spanish) describes the acts of intimidation, sabotage and bombings that have targeted the community radio milieu and examines the way that the indigenous community networks have consolidated as the armed conflict has gained in intensity.Formed in 1971, the CRIC bought together entities representing the Nasa, Misak, Yanacona, Totoró and Kokonuco peoples and various peasant groups. Cauca department is nowadays estimated to have an indigenous population of more than 250,000 distributed over a total of 77 communities called “resguardos.”The spread of community radio stations began with the Nasa project, launched in 1980 by Alvaro Ulcué, an indigenous priest who was murdered on 10 November 1984, probably by state agents. The project had four central elements – territorial autonomy, acting as a local government, consolidating identity and doing without the national government. The Nasa project spawned many local initiatives in its wake, especially in the areas of health, environment, spirituality and education (including communication).It was around that time that the guerrillas carried out a successful offensive in Toribío after a long presence in the area. Despite the 1985 Vitoncó resolution, calling for demilitarization of indigenous territories, the reaction to the guerrilla victory was a never-ending wave of violence that grew in intensity in the 2000s, when the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC) established their “Calima,” “Farallones” and “Libertad” offshoots in Cauca.Despite constant danger, forced stoppages, confiscation of equipment and financial difficulties, the community radio stations began over the years to play a strategic role in rallying the population in the resguardos.As their representatives explained to us during the visit, the radio stations relay and accompany projects concerning community life, cover the local mingas – including those organized by women and young people – and are an indispensible vehicle of collective expression during community assemblies. Cauca’s indigenous radio stations also continue to promote long-standing political demands, which is why they are priority military targets for the parties to the civil war.The armed clashes in July have put the call for regional autonomy back on the front burner, a call that was reiterated by these communities above all when members of the indigenous guard succeeded in removing the soldiers who had been guarding Cerro Berlín, near Toribío. A total of 22 people were injured in the clash, which took place on 17 July.The indigenous population is also concerned about the way the event was covered by Colombia’s mainstream media. The CRIC addressed an open letter to 17 national radio and TV stations and publications on 26 July describing their coverage as biased against the indigenous communities. The letter is still awaiting an answer, as is the offer of dialogue with the government.
