Two great hits from Manawatu vs North Harbour

first_imgTuesday Sep 2, 2008 Two great hits from Manawatu vs North Harbour Possibly the game of the weekend in the Air New Zealand cup was the tussle in Palmerston North between Manawatu and North Harbour. It went down to the wire, with some poor option taking and over eagerness at the end costing Manawatu the match 20-17.We got to see two great textbook hits, one from each side. The first in this clip is on big All Black Sevens star, Lote Raikanbula as he cuts through the line. It looks like halfback Chris Smylie who actually puts in the hit, lifting him and driving him back to the ground, halting his progress instantly.The second came from Manawatu replacement prop, the big Tongan Talau Hala. His was more of a hard hit, as he knocked back North Harbour eighthman Viliami Maafu. Ma’afu scored two tries on the night, so getting smashed by the opposition wasn’t too much of an issue for the 105kg loosie. The hit itself was great to see though, and shows what good timing and technique can do.

Rugbydump relaunches on new platform

first_imgTuesday Sep 6, 2011 Rugbydump relaunches on new platform Last month marked five years since Rugbydump was first launched. It wasn’t so much of a launch back then, it was more of a tinkering. Today however sees the relaunch of the site on our new platform, which will make a significant improvement to your daily RD experience.The past few months have seen a frantic race for us to get ready before the RWC kicks off, which as you know is only in a few days time. It looks like we’ve made it though, and we’re pleased to say that there will be marked improvement on the site in all the aspects that were holding us back before.But the it looks the same, you say? Yes, that was the intention for the first phase of redevelopment. We don’t want any shocks to the system so for now we’ve kept things simple, but there are a few new features which you’ll no doubt enjoy fiddling with over the next few days.Random VideosWe’ve got more control over the random video strip up top now, meaning they will change more often, and on page refresh will switch up a bit.Registered accountsYou can now register to be an official member of RD. Registering is free of course, and it’s painless. It provides you with all sorts of benefits, which brings us to commenting.CommentsWe have an all new commenting system, which will provide you with a better platform for healthy debate, sharing your views, and letting us know what you think of the posted articles and videos. You’re encouraged to Register an account for commenting. If not, you’ll need to verify each comment via email.We’ve also imported every one of the 80 000 plus comments from before, and may be able to link them to your new usernames at some stage in the future.Odds insde PostsWith the ever expanding betting options available in rugby, and the increasing amount of bets being placed, another addition to the re-launch is more of an aim than a feature. To make things even easier for our visitors and hopefully more profitable, where possible we will bring you the best betting odds (taken from one of the third party betting sites sites) available on any match report, in as much detail as possible. Although this will have to be completed manually and subsequently there may be a few occasions where the opportunity is missed – our main goal is to make Rugbydump not only a great read for our visitors but also a valuable source of information.Favourite PostsUnderneath each post you’ll see a little Add to Favourites button (only when logged in). Hit that, and it’ll show on your profile page for easy access whenever you want to rewatch, or show your mates.Profile PageAs part of your account, you get a profile page where you can add a pic/avatar, and a bit of info about you. It’s also where you’ll see your favourites, and a list of all your recent comments, in case you want to follow up on a previous discussion you were having perhaps. Categories/ArchivesWe now have a far better system when it comes to archived posts. It’s not 100% complete yet, but we will get most posts categorised which will mean you can easily access them on the sidebar. You’ll notice Big Hits & Dirty Play there now for example, where it shows the latest 10, and then ‘View Archive’ will show the rest. These are still being updated so please bear with us as there are over 2000 posts to go through.PaginationPagination is the way that you can now scroll to the bottom of the home page and hit ‘next’ or page 2, and browse the site like that. It’s going to mean a huge improvement in your site experience, so you can now catch up on the most recent action, easily, browsing all the way back to 2006 if you so please.There are a few other new features which you’ll notice along the way, but those are the main elements, along with the fact that we’re now one hundred percent on the .com domain, making things a lot simpler.Over the next few days we’ll be putting out fires and ironing out creases, so if you spot any errors or bugs, please do get in touch via the contact page in the menu up top. Most importantly, bear with us as we get things perfect just before the Rugby World Cup kick off.We also have a new App for iPhone, iPad, and Android which you can get now, but we’ll have more info and a proper launch soon. It’s the start of big things, and we’ll continue to add slight improvements here and there on site and app over the next few months. For now, Register your account and have a look around.Below is a quick promo video to set the mood.

March for missing and murdered Indigenous people and their families

first_imgJustice for Renee Davis protest.On Oct. 24, 200 people marched through downtown Seattle to demand “Justice for Renee Davis and baby Massi.” The Indigenous-led march marked the fourth year since Davis of the Muckleshoot Nation was murdered by King County sheriffs on the Muckleshoot Reservation near Seattle. The multinational march demanded justice for, and honored, Indigenous and Black lives. The rally and march included drummers, dancers, canoe families and ceremony along with speakers.The murders and disappearances of Indigenous women constitute a worldwide crime perpetrated by the system of capitalist colonialism. According to the Urban Health Institute’s 2018 report, there were 5,718 reports of missing U.S. and Alaskan Native women and girls in 2016. Rally leader Roxanne White pointed out that Seattle has the highest rate of this anti-Indigenous violence in the U.S.Donney Stevenson, Vice-Chair of the Muckleshoot Tribe, told the crowd, “No longer is it okay for our people to be marginalized. We come from a culture of warriors. We are standing up to say enough is enough!” Katrina Johnson spoke in strong solidarity with Renee Davis. Cops murdered her cousin Charleena Lyles, a Black mother of three children. (tinyurl.com/y39tmrlp)Davis, a mother of three daughters, was murdered by the cops while pregnant with her child Massi. The county cops were asked to do a wellness check on Davis at her house. But the cops, Timothy Lewis and Nicholas Pritchett, burst into Davis’ house and shot her numerous times while she was lying in bed. (tinyurl.com/y2gh6uje) This is exactly what racist cops did to Breonna Taylor, a Black health care worker, in Louisville, Ky.Renee Davis, who was learning the Coastal Salish language, was honored as a mother, a cultural advocate, a hunter and a fisher. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Miami-Dade resumes pre-pandemic evictions after unannounced February break

first_img Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Share via Shortlink Evictionsforeclosurescenter_img Message* Full Name* Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava (Getty, iStock)Miami-Dade County resumed executing writs of possessions for residential eviction cases filed before the pandemic, following an unannounced month-long break.The police execute writs of possession, evicting residents or businesses from their properties. The move follows a final judgment in a court case.Homeowners with federally backed mortgages are protected from eviction until at least March 31, per a federal moratorium from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.On Nov. 13, former Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez directed the police department to begin enforcing writs of possession for all cases filed on or before March 12, when the mayor declared a state of emergency. The policy continued under incumbent Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, who took office days after Gimenez’s order.But by early February, Miami-Dade Police paused the service of writs of possession as the mayor’s office looked to clarify the policy, according to a spokesperson. That temporary change in policy was not announced in writing. The break ended on Thursday, the spokesperson confirmed.In a court filing dated Feb. 2 for a foreclosure case dating back to 2015, the lender cited an “oral directive” from the mayor that led to the police refusing to execute a writ of possession. That residential borrower, who was foreclosed on, was evicted on Thursday, according to her attorney, David Winker.In a memo issued on Thursday, the mayor re-stated her policy on evictions. Miami-Dade Police will also remove non-tenants who are identified as squatters.Earlier this month, the Miami-Dade County Commission approved Levine Cava’s $60 million relief program for residential landlords with pending writs of possession for tenants facing eviction. The program offers landlords back rent of up to $3,000 per month. At that press conference, Michael Liu, Miami-Dade’s public housing director, said the courts had issued up to 1,700 writs of possession which would be prioritized.According to Miami-Dade Police, the department executed two commercial and nine residential writs of possession on Thursday. From Nov. 12 until Thursday, 324 writs of possession have been executed.Contact Katherine Kallergislast_img read more

RIBA House of the Year: Murphy House

first_imgHome » News » Land & New Homes » RIBA House of the Year: Murphy House previous nextLand & New HomesRIBA House of the Year: Murphy HouseThe Negotiator21st January 20170944 Views The RIBA House of the Year has been awarded to the best new house designed by the British architect Richard Murphy.Making the award even more special for Richard, this is in fact his own house in Edinburgh. It is, says RIBA, “A delightful essay in architecture. It speaks to its context with direct references to the Georgian terraces, and with a clever change of scale that is at once deferential and powerfully striking in the street.“It makes great use of a small site, creating a delightful private outdoor space on the first floor, with light brought in through the roof, and a seemingly endless number of surprising spaces.“It is a house that responds to the Scottish climate, opening up to the summer sun and then shutting itself down to create a snug refuge in the depth of winter. Sliding doors pull out of walls and roof shutters drop into place transforming the house from a light-filled space open to the exterior terrace.“It does all this with wit and style, in an architecture that Murphy has honed over the years to make distinct and personal.“It feels an intense and personal space, playful and inventive, each corner revealing something new.Full of references to his architectural heroes, Murphy has described his house as “a quarter Soane, a quarter Scarpa, a quarter eco-house and a quarter Wallace and Gromit, the latter referring to the various ingenious devices in the house.”The Hickling Broad Estate hits the marketKnight Frank and Brown & Co have launched one of the most significant parts of the Norfolk Broads to the market at a guide price of £2.3million.The Hickling Broad Estate is part of a world-renowned nature and conservation reserve, and spans about 654.73 acres, comprising extensive wetland, a let amenity and a commercial portfolio.The Hickling Broad Estate presents a very rare and exciting investment opportunity. The Broad is designated as a National Nature Reserve (NNR), a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and a Special Protection Area (SPA) as well as being a Ramsar site.George Bramley, Partner at Knight Frank, said, “The owners have pursued a conservative and traditional policy of management, and have retained the charm which makes Hickling Broad such a unique place. I expect the estate to appeal to international and UK buyers, and generate interest from private individuals, the leisure and tourism industry and conservation bodies.”Anne Barker, Partner at Brown & Co, said, “The estate has been in the same family ownership since the early 19th century. The scope to build on the leisure and tourism potential whilst enjoying the exceptional wildlife and conservation attributes make it a truly exciting prospect.”The estate includes the focal point Broad area, spanning 588.69 acres of water, reed bed, wetland and marsh, grassland, fen and woodland and the let commercial portfolio, producing an income of £50,000 per year, along with a boatyard; thatched two-bedroom cottage; 16 boathouses; moorings; the Hickling Windsurfing Beach and four holiday lodges.St Helens’ store RedevelopmentMerseyside based Luxor Group has purchased one of St Helens’ most iconic buildings, which once housed the independent department store Tyrers.The developers have exciting plans for the five-storey building on Bridge Street, which include creating a sustainable mixed use scheme with housing and retail space.Luxor Group will be investing over £1 million to renovate the building to a high standard and bring the empty building back in to use.The exterior façade and features will be retained, with the developers revamping the rear of the building and adding decorative exterior lighting.The 15,000 sq. ft. building will be converted in to a mixture of one and two-bedroom luxury apartments on the upper floors while the famous basement and ground floor retail space will be retained, with Luxor already looking in to potential retailers that could benefit the town centre.The conversion of the building to create one and two-bedroom luxury apartments will aim to address the shortage of such accommodation in St Helens.Paul NicholsonPaul Nicholson, Managing Director of Luxor Group says: “We are very proud to have an opportunity to save such an iconic building with so much heritage.“Tyrers was an institution to the people of Merseyside and we are excited to bring the building back to life by creating functional living space and attracting a Grade A tenant for the retail space.”SDL Bigwood wins 205 Holland Park Avenue contractSDL Bigwood has won the management contract for new apartments at one of London’s most upmarket addresses.The 205 Holland Park Avenue development by Redrow is in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and offers a selection of two and three-bedroom homes, with prices up to £1.8m.41 are for private ownership, nine are affordable apartments and commercial units make up the ground floor.SDL Bigwood provides a full on-site management for all maintenance work, as well as a concierge service to residents.Brett Williams, Executive Partner at SDL Bigwood, said, “We have worked alongside the team at Redrow for a number of years to help develop the service offered to residents, as well as the management plan, forming a close relationship with Redrow as a strategic business partner. It’s great to be in a position to now be able to put that management plan into action.“205 Holland Park Avenue is exemplary on every level. This is a collection of exceptionally spacious homes in a striking building, with a number of high-tech innovations, including a vehicle turntable, CCTV and comfort cooling. The development also has its share of environmentally friendly provisions. As part of our team’s role, we’re responsible for the central heating system and making sure it runs efficiently to keep energy bills low.”Kier Living’s Yorkshire developmentKier Living has secured planning approval to build 150 new houses in Fryston, near Castleford. The new development, off Wheldon Road, is to offer a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes adjacent to the River Aire and opposite the RSPB reserve at Fairburn Ings.The former colliery site, where Fryston Hall once stood, was earmarked for development as part of the Castleford Growth Delivery Plan and was remediated for housing provisions by the Homes and Communities Agency. Kier Living subsequently acquired the site from Wakefield Council via the Delivery Partner Panel 2 framework which is designed to accelerate delivery of residential led development.Since then Kier Livng has developed plans to provide an attractive scheme in keeping with the village environment.David Mackintosh, Sales and Marketing Director, said, “We are delighted to receive planning approval for this development, which is designed to enhance the existing village with a range of well-presented family homes.“Riverbank Meadows offers an attractive setting, on the banks of the river, with no through traffic and direct access to a wonderful area preserved for nature lovers and leisure pursuits.74 luxury homes in Alderley ParkPH Homes has submitted detailed plans for its latest project – creating an exclusive residential enclave in the beautiful grounds of Alderley Park, the former Cheshire headquarters of AstraZeneca.The plan comprises 74 new homes in detached, semidetached and mews styles, alongside sport and leisure facilities, a gastro pub, boutique hotel and farm shop.PH Homes has engaged internationally acclaimed architect Robert Adam, Director at Adam Architecture to design the properties.Each of the house types has been created to complement the historic surroundings, with the original listed walled garden, arboretum, water garden and serpentine at the Park providing a spectacular backdrop.Robert Adam aid, “We believe that we have created an outstanding scheme with an architecture that will do justice to these exceptional surroundings.”Philip Hughes, Managing Director of PH Homes added, “Alderley Park is a truly stunning location with a rich history, and we can promise buyers that this will be an incredible place to live.”Government fails on affordabilityJust 4 per cent of ‘affordable’ properties, (below the stamp duty threshold of £125,000 between January and September 2016) were new build homes, research by My Home Move has found – suggesting that the Government is falling short of its own targets.Doug CrawfordDoug Crawford, CEO of My Home Move, said, “In its Autumn Statement the Government renewed its pledge to build more homes across the UK, with a particular emphasis on 40,000 additional ‘affordable’ homes. Our research shows that two in three people believe affordable housing should cost less than £120,000. The largest proportion of ‘affordable’ new homes have been built across Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and the West Midlands; however, in Berkshire, Herefordshire, Surrey and London, the picture is grim. Across the four regions only 1,544 properties were sold for less than £125,000, of which just 57, were newly built.”My Home Move discovered that the majority of homes bought in the UK for less than £125,000 are terraced houses or flats. Durham, South Yorkshire and Merseyside had the highest proportion of ‘affordable’ homes sold during the survey period, accounting for on an average of one in two transactions.Legal & General £1 billion fundLegal & General Investment Management Real Assets (LGIM Real Assets) has raised a further £170 million of equity investment from major institutions, including a significant commitment from a client of Aon Hewitt, for an open-ended Build to Rent (BTR) fund. The new fund will open up the rental market to long-term pension and institutional investors, and sits alongside £600 million of investment by Legal & General Capital and PGGM in 2016.LGIM Real Assets’ total investment capability for BTR now stands at circa £1 billion. Since the launch of the LGIM Real Assets BTR platform, it has secured over a 1000 homes under construction or in planning within Bristol, Salford and Walthamstow, and has a pipeline of future projects, including Birmingham, Leeds and London.Mike Barrie, Director of Fund Management said, “It is pleasing to attract such significant investment into our BTR platform. We have a housing crisis and only with institutional funding can we deliver the new homes the country needs. We have 1000 new homes either in planning or under construction.Kier Living’s Yorkshire development Legal & General £1billion fund land and new homes 205 Holland Park Avenue Alderley Park luxury omes RIBA House of the Year SDL Bigwood St Helens’ store redevelopment The Hickling Broad Estate Doug Crawford January 21, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Jeremy Corbyn locks horns with Strutt & Parker over “ridiculous” first time buyer research

first_imgHome » News » Jeremy Corbyn locks horns with Strutt & Parker over “ridiculous” first time buyer research previous nextJeremy Corbyn locks horns with Strutt & Parker over “ridiculous” first time buyer researchSpeaking at regional conference over the weekend, the Labour leader said suggesting challenges of housing market should not be boiled down into buying cappuccinos or not.Nigel Lewis20th November 201701,145 Views Two of the unlikeliest political sparring partners locked horns over the weekend – agent Strutt & Parker and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.Commenting on Strutt & Parker’s press campaign last week that suggested first time buying couples could save up the average UK deposit of £33,000 over five years by cutting out six things from their lives, Corbyn said “we have a housing crisis that needs to be addressed, to reduce the whole thing to people drinking cappuccino…is frankly ridiculous”Items of expenditure that Strutt & Parker suggested first time buyers should cut out included on-the-go coffees (£6,248), gym membership (£5,500), mini breaks (£3,500), takeaways (£13,200), playing the lottery (£4,160) and mobile phone upgrades (£770).Out of kilterSpeaking at a Labour regional meeting in Huntingdon, Cambridge (pictured, right) over the weekend Jeremy Corbyn told the Press Association that “the idea you can conflate the price of sandwiches to the extortions of the housing market is slightly out of kilter here”, he said.“We have a lot of young people who work really hard, have to rent in the private rented sector, and are spending half, even more, of their take home pay on rent, cannot save to buy, [are] never going to be able to access social housing unless they become incredibly needy.“So, they have a life ahead of them in which they are going to pay far more for their housing than any previous generation did.”Corbyn went on to say that the current problems with affordability in the housing market were down to the “unregulated” housing market and that Labour was “committed” to more house building and regulation.But the Labour party leader’s reference to sandwiches is a little wide of the mark. Reports about the Strutt & Parker research have mentioned sandwiches several times, even though the company’s own material only says ‘takeaways’, by which it meant pizzas and Indians, rather than lunchtime food.Jeremy Corbyn Strutt & Parker first-time buyers November 20, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
