first_imgGlasgow’s next home game is the deciding leg of this season’s 1872 Cup derby double header against Edinburgh Rugby at Firhill on New Year’s Day (kick-off 5.35pm).Tickets are available via www.glasgowwarriors.org, by calling 0844 800 3490, or in person at the Glasgow on Ice box office on George Square and the Gordon Street and Sauchiehall Street branches of Greaves Sports, our official retail partner. Sean Lamont (L) and his brother Rory (R) seen during the World Cup will both be heading back to GlasgowThe Glasgow Warriors backline will boast yet more international quality in season 2012/13, after it was today confirmed that Sean Lamont is to return to the club from the start of the next campaign.The news comes just over a fortnight after his brother Rory rejoined the Warriors after a four-year hiatus.Sean, a powerful winger who can also play in the centres, spent two seasons in Scotland’s number one city between 2003 and 2005, endearing himself to the Glasgow support with his fearless attacking and try-scoring prowess. The 30-year-old crossed the whitewash 14 times in 32 RaboDirect PRO12 appearances, and established an even better European strike rate: seven scores in 10 games.He moved to Northampton Saints in 2005, and has spent the last two-and-a-half seasons in Wales with Scarlets. He will see out the rest of the campaign in Llanelli before making his emotional homecoming.Lamont, who has signed until the end of May 2015, enthused: “I’m delighted to be coming back to the Warriors. They’re a fantastic club with a great team environment, a hugely talented squad and a very clear idea of where they want to go in the coming years.“I’ve heard all about the plans to keep developing Glasgow on and off the field, and can’t wait to have a look around Scotstoun Stadium, where we’ll be playing our games as of next year. The club have clearly come a long way since I was last involved, and I’m thrilled at the prospect of playing my part in helping them write the next few chapters in the story. “It will also be fantastic to be back at the same club as Rory. We both took huge pride in wearing that Glasgow jersey a few years ago, and it will be something really special to be pulling it on together once again. I’m pleased to have my future sorted out in such a positive fashion, but for now it’s about putting the move to one side and giving my all for Scarlets during the rest of the campaign. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing for the club, and they’ve been great to me and my family.”Head coach Sean Lineen couldn’t hide his delight at the announcement, saying: “I’m massively excited to have brought Sean back on board. He’s a real tough competitor who knows his way round the RaboDirect PRO12 and Heineken Cup, and offers great positional versatility to boot.“He’s always kept Glasgow close to his heart, and that passion will be a fantastic asset for us when allied to his obvious playing and try-scoring ability. With David Lemi and Rory Lamont also having joined, we’ve now signed three fine international players in the last month. It’s a real statement of intent from the club and Scottish Rugby, and it’s now up to us as a squad and coaching staff to make the most of the tools we’re being given.”Since making his Test debut in 2004, Sean Lamont has been a key figure in the Scotland side, starting all the team’s games at the recent Rugby World Cup to take his cap haul to 60. One of the most committed players on the circuit, his arrival is sure to be hailed by Warriors supporters who have watched their team suffer just a single defeat in 10 matches since 23 September.

BSIP/UIG via Getty Imagescenter_img Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. By Irène Mathieu, Pediatrician, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of VirginiaThis spring, after stay-at-home orders were announced and schools shut down across the nation, many families stopped going to their pediatrician. As a result, kids have fallen behind on important childhood vaccinations.Vaccination rates declined starkly after mid-March, with up to 60% reductions in some areas of the country. Nationwide, vaccination rates dropped by 22% among Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program recipients under 2.Now that kids are coming back to pediatricians like me, many parents have questions about catching up.Why is it a problem that my child is behind on vaccines?Vaccines protect your child from serious communicable diseases including brain infections, pneumonia, bloodstream infections and, in the case of the HPV and hepatitis B vaccines, even some types of cancer. The vaccine schedule we use was created to maximize your child’s protection throughout life.In addition to protecting your child, vaccines protect others by decreasing the circulation of dangerous germs in our communities – we call this “herd immunity.”Herd immunity is especially important to protect people who can’t get certain vaccines for medical reasons. When enough people are vaccinated, a disease can disappear altogether. For example, close to 95% of people need to be vaccinated against measles to stop transmission of that virus. When the number of people who are adequately vaccinated drops too low, the whole community is at risk of an outbreak.With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing across the country, the last thing we need is an outbreak of another deadly disease.How do I figure out what my child needs to catch up?This depends on your child’s age and which vaccines they’ve already received. The best way to figure out what your child needs is to call your pediatrician’s office and ask. There is a clear “catch-up schedule” that we use to figure out which vaccines a child needs and when they can be given.Many parents worry that getting too many shots at once could be dangerous. However, the amount of material contained in each vaccine is very, very small compared with all the different germs and substances our kids breathe in, eat and drink every day, not to mention what they’re exposed to when they scrape a knee or elbow.There really is no such thing as too many shots at once under current guidelines, although some shots can’t be given together on the same day.What if my child is not feeling well when the pediatrician wants to give the vaccines?For most kids, it is perfectly safe to get vaccines when they have a mild illness – including a fever. Also, vaccines are no less effective if given when your child is sick.It’s understandable that getting a lot of shots at once when your child isn’t feeling well can be upsetting for the child. You can talk to your pediatrician about which shots are most critical and ask that your child get those first and the rest on another day. At the same time, we still want people to stay home as much as possible to keep people safe from COVID, so try to get all of your child’s care done in as few visits as possible.Does my child really need the flu shot?The effectiveness of the flu shot varies each year. It is not 100% effective, but we still recommend it because this vaccine lowers your child’s risk of dying of the flu if he or she were to get sick.Unfortunately, 188 children died of the flu last year in the U.S. Many of these children were perfectly healthy before they got sick. Most of those who died had not received the flu shot.Other parents worry that the flu shot itself will make their child sick.The injected influenza vaccine is made from dead flu virus, so it is not possible to get the flu from the vaccine. However, the shot may cause a low-grade fever, fatigue or muscle soreness and swelling where the shot was given. These are signs that the body’s immune system is responding to the vaccine, which is exactly what we want! It’s the body’s way of training itself to recognize the flu virus, so when children come into contact with the virus later, their bodies knows how to fight it.Should my child get the COVID-19 vaccine when one is available?It is too soon to make recommendations about who should get a COVID-19 vaccine. It is highly unlikely that a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19 will be widely available before 2021.Because COVID is still circulating in our communities, it’s that much more important that we all work to ensure children are as protected as possible from other deadly diseases.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

A house is excavated and a space created. The insertion of an object allows inhabitation. The house is on a terrace whose split-section is native to Georgian Dublin; a grand parlour to the front with smaller rooms to the rear at half-levels one up and one down from the street. Save this picture!© Paul Tierney PhotographyRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEACurtain WallsRabel Aluminium SystemsSpider System – Rabel 15000 Super ThermalLouvers / ShuttersLunawoodThermowood BattensCurtain WallsPOHLVentilated Curtain Wall – Europanel®The project begins with removal – of the existing extension, internal walls and earth – bringing the entire house to lower ground-floor level. This opens the volume of the house as a double-height vessel, full of light. A cruciform object is inserted; a piece of architectural furniture which spreads tree-like from a concentrated base. Services such as kitchen, toilet, storage and stairwell are housed within this trunk – providing for living and dining in the spaces around it. Save this picture!© Paul Tierney PhotographyAbove this is a platform for sleeping, dressing and study spaces. The four branches of the structure hold various functions – two which span to the side walls act as wardrobes while that to the front is a cantilevered reading desk for the teacher-client. The fourth branch extends through the rear wall and projects two meters beyond it housing a shower room, which is glazed to the sky, reminiscence of the traditional “Georgian return typology”. A ledge running along the perimeter wall downstairs expresses the retaining wall which was built against the street and neighbouring houses – this doubles as a shelf for the display of books and artifacts in the living and dining areas. Opening out from this ground floor is a generous garden with a simple rendered wall, which hides a secret reading room and bathing area. This private realm extends visually to the rear of the site through a glazed wall, which can be opened allowing for sheltered outdoor bathing. Save this picture!© Paul Tierney PhotographyFirst presented at the arrival platform, the house must be circumambulated before it can be fully understood. At each vantage point the space can be conceived as contained by the existing shell with its double-pitched roof and unaltered openings. The entire house is a continuous yet differentiated volume – only the washrooms are fully enclosed. A complex series of interconnected and overlapping spaces is set up by the architectural insertion and its projections. The insertion is constructed with polycarbonate and steel. This lightweight structure is also the primary source of light in the evening – inset fittings cause its translucent surfaces to illuminate the spaces, which it generates above, below and between the object and its container.Project gallerySee allShow lessMonsoons in Pakistan + Flood Control MethodsArticlesLompreta Nolte Arquitetos Proposal for the Environment Museum Annex Competition, Rio…Articles Share CopyHouses•Ireland “COPY” Area:  67 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

first_imgNew York — A flying squad of activists from New Yorkers Against Bratton confronted Mayor Bill de Blasio as he left the Preschool Nation Summit in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood Aug. 5. They chanted, “Hey, hey, De Blasio! Bratton’s got to go!” and “Justice for Eric Garner!”Democrat De Blasio swept to victory last year on his reputation as a progressive and on campaign promises to end stop-and-frisk racial profiling. But once elected, his appointment to head the New York Police Department was Bill Bratton — the architect of stop-and-frisk under arch-racist Mayor Rudy Giuliani in the 1990s.As police rushed De Blasio into his sport utility vehicle, protesters loudly demanded that he fire racist New York Police Commissioner Bratton and end his “broken windows” policing policy that racially profiles Black, Latino/a and other New Yorkers of color.It was this type of occupation-style policing championed by Bratton that led to the NYPD murder July 17 of African-American father of six Eric Garner by an illegal chokehold in Staten Island. Police claimed they went after Garner because he was allegedly selling individual cigarettes.“Mayor de Blasio is appearing at this summit to talk about early childhood education,” said parent and activist Greg Butterfield. “But what kind of education is he giving the children of New York when his police kill their parents and family members?”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A screenshot of part of the email was sent to TCU360.“We had our former CRA, living in the frat house, in possession of drugs, guns, and alcohol,” Reis wrote, referring to the chapter’s resident assistant. “We had multiple Phi Kaps dealing drugs, including a member in the house dealing some extremely hard drugs.”“We had a gulf shores spring break video produced by members of PC15 that went public on the internet and was posted on TCU fb wall that showed our members and other students raging like no tomorrow,” Reis wrote. “We were caught drinking in the chapter room during candlelight for the seniors.”“And we have been caught hazing 2 out of the last three years among other violations with the school and nationals,” he wrote.Cavins-Tull declined to comment on Reis’s email.Reis did not respond to repeated voicemails and emails. Phi Kappa Sigma Executive Director Timothy Schug was not immediately available for comment.In 2008, Phi Kappa  lost housing privileges and was reduced to colony status due to “misconduct” that included drinking alcohol in the chapter room. TCU reinstated the fraternity’s housing privileges in 2009 after members completed a program.Phi Kap’s chapter adviser, Gerald Ewbanks, was the fraternity’s president when it was sanctioned in 2008.“We are disappointed about the chapter being closed down for the next 18 months,” Ewbanks wrote in a statement. Ewbanks expressed hope that the fraternity would be reinstated by 2018.Cavins-Tull wrote that the removal is not meant to be a form of punishment.“We do not talk in terms of ‘punishment,’ but instead developing some sustainable practices to restore the status of the chapter on this campus,” Cavins-Tull wrote. “We are working with Phi Kappa Sigma to create a plan for reestablishing their Beta Theta chapter.”In his email to the fraternity, Reis was contrite.“There was behavior that was accepted by a lot of you and that is why this happened. And ultimately because I did not stop these things from happening its a poor reflection on my ability to condemn that behavior,” Reis wrote.“That being said I still love you guys and know everybody makes mistakes I just wish it did not have to end.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitterlast_img read more

His status as legal representative for the private party associated with the public prosector will also be made official. March 26, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders, is in Kiev on the occasion of the second anniversary of the disappearance of Georgiy Gongadze. He will sign the necessary papers, at the Ukraine public prosecutor’s office, enabling him to become the official representative of the private party associated with the public prosecutor in the court action, Lessia and Myroslava Gongadze, the journalist’s mother and widow, a status that has been refused him up until now. In order to uncover the truth and to help the investigation reach a conclusion, Robert Ménard is requesting that the public prosecutor allow him to study, with the help of an independent expert of his own choice, all the results of the previous expert reports as well as the texts of the documents by which these reports were commissioned. It is only after these documents have been examined that the family will agree to the burial of Georgiy Gongadze’s remains. Robert Ménard is also asking the public prosecutor’s office to interview Mr Yarochenko, Mr Nazartchuk, Mr Salachenko and Mr Tchemenko, the four men who are reported to have been shadowing Mr Gongadze during the weeks prior to his disappearance. These facts have never been investigated.Mr Gongadze, editor of the online newspaper www.pravda.com.ua, disappeared on 16 September 2000. His headless body was found on 2 November 2000.
