This weekend’s talking points

first_imgOkay, so both sides like an offload, make breaks and lead the try-scoring charts in the Aviva Premiership. However, Exeter only halted a slide of five consecutive losses at home against London Welsh last week and they are facing a team welcoming back the league’s top marksman, Nick Evans.Harlequins will want to stay a step ahead of the rest, being only a point clear of Saracens at the top of the Premiership, but they have been beaten by Chiefs already this season and they do give up tries.Away from the scoring and the flash passing, seeing Tom Hayes facing off against the second-row pairing of George Robson and Nick Easter, making his second appearance of the season in the engine room, could be entertaining enough.Storming: Can the Stormer cross the line against the Sharks?A Super Shark Storm (17:10)Before Super Rugby kicked off the Stormers were being touted as possible winners of the whole kit and caboodle. Then they met the Bulls and Morne Steyn while they were in the mood.On Saturday afternoon, the Stormers will again run out away from home, this time into the shark tank of the Kings Park Stadium. The home side have already won a tight game last week against the Cheetahs and it will worry Stormers that the Sharks have already developed a taste for flesh…Expect at least a single drop of blood.SundayPoor admin, poor Welsh  (14:15)It is bad enough that London Welsh have a hearing looming, as they face a potential points deduction for fielding an ineligible player – Tyson Keats – for several games. However, the next game they have after getting possibly disastrous news comes against the bullies of the league, Saracens. Sarries will know how many points they are behind Quins before this game, while Welsh will have to put their problems behind them and turn over Messrs Brits, Borthwick, Fraser, Hodgson, Strettle, and Tompkins.Their position in the league is starting to look a little bit slippy. EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – FEBRUARY 24: Flyhalf Paddy Jackson of Ireland kicks at goal during the RBS Six Nations match between Scotland and Ireland at Murrayfield Stadium on February 24, 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Caught in the middle: Tyson Keats playing for London Welsh has thrown up problems. He starts against Saracens.By Alan DymockEVERY TIME we head to the pub with our mates there is a sort of social one-upmanship where every party has to demonstrate that they know more than the other, that they have their finger on the pulse.With rugby it is no different, especially when there is no RBS 6 Nations to lean against. There are talking points out there and if you time it just right and keep abreast of the rugby schedule, you can keep one step ahead of those dullards you call friends.Friday nightPaddy Jackson’s development  (19:05)Punt practice, Paddy: Jackson kicks at goalThe Ulster fly-half started his first game for Ireland on Sunday, but despite a strong showing on the hoof his kicking was wayward. He missed goal and he missed touch. His boot looked rusty.So in his international week off he is afforded a run out for his province against Treviso in the RaboDirect Pro12, trotting out against the Italian outfit and given the kicking duty – something that normally is handed to scrum-half Ruan Pienaar – in the hope that he can discover some form before Ireland play France in next week’s return to 6 Nations action.West (Country) is best  (20:00)Not only will Bath v Gloucester be your typical West Country slobber knocker, but there are a lot of stars returning for this clash.While Mike Tindall looks to play his 150th game for the Cherry and Whites, Freddie Burns looks to run off that knee injury that prevented him from joining the England squad. Wales’ Paul James returns for Bath beside England returnee David Wilson, and Matt Banahan earns reinstatement at the same time as captain Francois Louw.SaturdayCan Chiefs turn over Quins?  (15:15)last_img read more

The Milanofiori housing complex is part of the master plan by Erick van Egeraat, characterized by a series of functions (offices, hotels, restaurants, cinemas, leisure, residences) that create a cluster whose elements appear to follow the characteristics of the surrounding landscape creating a public park as the extension of the existing forest. The design seeks the symbiosis between architecture and landscape, so that the synthesis of artificial and natural elements could define the quality of living and the sense of belonging by the inhabitants. Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsThe interface between the building and the garden becomes the field where interaction between man and environment takes place. This interface is defined by the “C” form of the complex which encompasses the public park, and by the porosity from interior to exterior that characterizes all 107 apartments. The two facades are designed differently with one more urban, facing the street outside, and the other one more organic, facing the inner park. Save this picture!© Marco introiniThe design of the urban facade stimulates a sense of belonging thanks to the composition of white frames which identify separately the units. These frames include vertical wooden panels of different widths which can slide across the frames and control the inner light as necessary. Save this picture!© Marco introiniThe organic facade overlooking the garden features double glazed bioclimatic greenhouses. The co-planarity between the glass of the greenhouse and the glass guardrail covering the string-course creates an effect where the shape of the construction and the background merge and reverse their roles constantly, producing kaleidoscopic effects overlapping the reflection of the public garden outside with the transparency of the private garden inside. Save this picture!© Marco introiniThe geometry of the building is shaped by translation of the upper levels in line with positions of optimum solar exposure and by tapering of the external terraces in order to increase introspection among residents. The winter garden has a double value: an environmental value in providing a buffer zone which allows thermal regulation, and an architectural value in allowing extension of the interior living space towards the exterior landscape (and vice versa) permitting different uses from summer to winter. Save this picture!© Marco introiniThrough the overlap of different natural layers (the public park, the open terraces and the winter gardens), the project seeks a kind of a holism of nature, where various personal interactions of these natural layers create an intensive landscape that is directly and personally customized by each resident.

SGA votes to hold referendum to eliminate House seats for Honors College

first_imgReddIt Layna Steward Linkedin ReddIt Previous articlePop Off Podcast Episode 2: Good food, bad fadsNext articleHoroscope: February 12, 2020 Layna Steward RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Welcome TCU Class of 2025 printThe House representatives were asked to raise their hand if they are currently in the John V. Roach Honors College. Photo by Layna Steward.The House of Representatives passed a bill Tuesday night calls for the elimination of House seats for the John V. Roach Honors College. The legislation, which passed 33-15, noted that “students within the honors college receive triple representation from their class, academic and honors representatives whereas non-honors students only receive double representation.”A student body vote is expected to be held before the end of the semester. The measure needs a simple majority to pass. The apportionment became a concern once the numbers and percentages of House members’ representation came to the attention of Student Body Treasurer Paige Shiring, said Class of 2021 Representative Austin Shively.“When looking at the numbers and percentages, there is not an equal representation in the House currently because of the Honors College seats,” said Shively. “Getting rid of the Honors College seats will create equality within the House.”The House of Representatives wants it to be known that “this has nothing to do with any current litigation that exists on campus, but that it is purely our student government’s attempt to make our representation of the student body more fair and equal,” said Neeley School of Business Representative Zane Champie.Lawsuit claims TCU faculty physically, verbally abused student“This is not a legal matter,” said Shiring. “This is SGA taking an opportunity to critically evaluate how we conduct business during a time where the campus really cares.” The Honors College is technically a co-curricular program, so if that is the case, other co-curricular programs such as Neeley Fellows should also be represented in the House, Shiring said.“Without the Honors seats, it will open up more opportunity for other students to become a part of SGA,” Shively said.Although the majority of the representatives voted in agreement with the bill, there was a significant number of members who believe the Honors College should still be represented.Honors representative Clayton Dana-Bashian attempts to make one last point that the Honors College is an asset to student government. (Layna Steward)“I believe that maintaining honors representatives is the best way to ensure transparent and effective advocacy for TCU students,” said honors Representative Clayton Dana-Bashian. “However, the upcoming referendum is an important way for the students to voice their opinions about their representation and tell SGA how best to represent them moving forward.”Overall, the goal of this bill is to create a “truly equitable student government,” Shiring said.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice M Nagaprasanna, while allowing the amendment application filed by petitioner Anivar A Aravind, said “The submission is that use of Aarogya Setu application has been made compulsory by Dept of Personnel and Training and that the SOP dated June 4 of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare makes it mandatory for employees working in offices to install and use the Aarogya setu app. We direct that on the next date (August 3) Union of India will clarify on the aforesaid allegation made by the petitioner.” In addition to this, the court has also allowed the Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited to be impleaded in the petition and directed it to make a statement clarifying whether use of Aarogya Setu application will be made mandatory as a condition precedent for boarding metro rail as and when functioning of metro rail starts. Senior Advocate Colin Gonsalves, appearing for the petitioner. argued that BMRCL has made it mandatory to install and use Aarogya Setu application by Metro users on smartphones, when utility begins. Posters making such an announcement have also been displayed. The bench then asked the government counsel whether metro rail was functioning during the lockdown period. Additional Solicitor General M B Nargund, appearing for the Union Government, informed the court that for the past three months, the metro railway has not been functioning in the city and the situation is likely to remain the same for the next two to three more months. He argued that the application filed by the petitioner was premature at this time. However, the bench observed that “Metro rail should come before the court and say that they will not raise this. No instrumentality of the state can say that use of the Aarogya setu app is compulsory.” Gonsalves then apprised the court about the nature of the proposed amendment to the pleadings which was sought in the petition. It was said that rapid changes are taking place over the last three to four weeks. He even claimed that data of persons is already being shared with third parties in breach of norms of privacy. The amendment application states that there have been developments in the Aarogya setu application recently.  An update in android and iOS version with even further function creep allowing bluetooth and location data available with the government to check health status of the person the user came in contact with and the iOS version now allows sharing of data with third parties, stated the petitioner.  The Central Government had earlier submitted before the Court that the use of Aarogya Setu was not mandatory for travel by air or rail, and that the same was completely voluntary.The petitioner submitted that many countries across the world launched mobile apps for contact tracing of persons who test positive for COVID-19. Those applications are voluntary and most of these applications across the world use only bluetooth and do not not access the location of the user. However, the application launched on April 2, by the National Informatics Centre for contact tracing and which has been downloaded more than 100 million times by users, has been using location service and bluetooth to track users. The petitioner also argued that the Data Access Protocol for Aarogya Setu notified by the Chairperson of the Empowered Group on Technology and Data Management on May 11 has no force of law and that this protocol cannot be an excuse to mandate the use of Aarogya setu app without any enabling law. The app has been collecting excessive data and this goes against the principles of data minimization and purpose limitation as enshrined in ‘Puttaswamy Judgement’, contended the petitioner.
