The project is a new housing complex of 34 high-standard apartments from 1 to 3 bedrooms. It is located in a valley floor between the so-called plateau Avijl and Kauwberg, two high-value ecological sites of Uccle (a Brussels’ District). This is a very sensitive situation at the articulation of urban and rural spaces and the border of a protected natural site. Our proposal was to reinforce the existing connections with the landscape. Its formal expression is based on a sound analysis of the site topography and the morphology of the built surrounding. The apartments are organized into those two main buildings (with four floors each) around a common garden. This disposition offers a high permeability from the public space to the central garden and the open natural space of the Kauwberg in the background. It also generates a large panel of different apartments that enjoy generous roof terraces, balcony and private gardens.

61st Senior Caribbean Table Tennis Championships

first_imgGuyanese women open on winning note, men suffer mixed fortunesGUYANA’S campaign at the 61st Senior Caribbean Table Tennis Championships, here on home soil at Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH), served off to different starts yesterday for the Women and Men’s teams respectively.Playing in two matches, the Guyanese women took away maximum points and sit top of the table with four points heading into today’s action.In the first session of play during the morning, the Guyanese women faced Martinique and steamrolled them, winning 3-0. First Natalie ‘Speedy’ Cummings teamed up with Chelsea Edghill against Oceane Meredin and Mevena Avril and the Guyanese duo dispatched their opponents in straight sets of 11-7, 11-6, 11-5 before Trenace Lowe made it 2-0, Team Guyana defeating Armelle Pruvost 11-3, 8-11, 11-5, 11-3.Edghill then handed Guyana maximum points from the fixture by beating Mevena Avril in straight sets of 11-4, 11-5, 11-6.Guyana’s next victims were Barbados, who suffered a 0-3 loss. In the doubles match-up, Cummings and Edghill once again teamed up to devastating effect, condemning Anthonette Riley and Krystle Harvey to sets of 5-11, 11-3, 11-3, 7-11, 11-8 while Lowe chipped in with an 11-6, 18-20, 13-11 and 13-11 win over Janae Lewis.Once again Edghill put the icing on the cake, defeating Harvey in three identical sets of 11-3 to leave the Guyanese girls sitting pretty in pole position with four points. They will face possibly their toughest opponents, the Dominican Republic, today along with Jamaica.However, the Guyanese men did not have the same dream start, facing powerhouse Dominican Republic as they went down 3-0. First Joel Alleyne and Christopher Franklin surrendered in the doubles match by sets of 8-11, 8-11, 6-11 to the Dominican duo of Emil Santos and Isaac Vila.Meanwhile, Shemar Britton showed a bit of a fight against Mariano Lockward but also went down in three straight sets of 8-11, 8-11, 4-11, Franklin was the last casualty of the Dominican encounter conceding defeat to Vila in sets of 6-11, 11-8, 9-11, 3-11.In their second game of the day, the Guyanese men rebounded with a 3-0 win over St Lucia. Up to press time the detailed scores of that game were yet to be made available to the media. They will advance to the main draw today with that win as St Lucia finished third in that group.Action begins at 10:00hrs today at Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH), Homestretch Avenue, and is open to the public.last_img read more

Daniels: Instant replay not appropriate for every sport

first_imgInstant replay.Two words that have generated a tremendous amount of controversy over the last few years in just about every sport you can imagine – becoming a buzzword of sorts and earning a mention in almost every sporting event that is played.And yet, when instant replay is consulted, the heckling from fans that used to be directed at the call itself has now found a target in whether or not a play should have been reviewed or what effects the review itself might have had on the game.For a prime example, you need not look farther than the recent NCAA Tournament for basketball.Just one day before the disappointing first round exit by the Badgers Friday, the other team from Wisconsin, Marquette, was just 10 seconds away from a similar fate.With Davidson clinging to a slim one-point lead, a long pass to a Davidson player up the court on a fast break opportunity led to a turnover, giving the Golden Eagles one last chance to salvage their season and move on to the round of 32.But – as if to almost double punish the Wildcats – the referees reviewed the play to adjust the game clock, essentially giving Marquette a critical quasi-timeout when the team had none remaining.With an extra 1.2 seconds added to the clock, Marquette executed the next play perfectly and junior guard Vander Blue drove to the basket for an easy layup to win the game.Now whether or not the extra timeout was really influential in the game’s outcome is hard to determine, but the possibility certainly remains, and for many fans that is all they need to get up in arms.Still, it is not my goal to argue that the NCAA change its rules concerning instant replay – I’ll leave that to the college basketball experts – but rather, I tell this story to challenge the all-too-often accepted concept that technology in sports equals progress.Instant replay brings more changes to the game than simply solving the “human-error” problem that having referees poses, and not all of them are good.In all of the excitement surrounding instant replay, the push for its acceptance into all sports has come to ignore the compatibility of each sport to the technology.Just less than two weeks ago, April 11 to be exact, the English Premier League announced its decision to allow goal-line technology – to be used in the event that it is difficult to tell whether or not a goal has been scored – when the 2013-14 season rolls around next August.One of the last sports to hold out against instant replay, claiming that soccer is not conducive to the stoppages that come with adding instant replay, soccer has finally given in over the last year to begin the process of integrating instant replay to the game.While it is only a small change that certainly won’t be employed all too often, considering a 0-0 score line at the end of the game is as common as triple-digit scores by basketball teams in the NBA, when it is used, it risks completely changing a game that has become famous for its ebb and flow nature.In a sport where the average player runs more than seven miles between the start of the game and its end 90 minutes later, the role that fitness plays in the game is crucial – often the key factor in deciding the game’s final score.So the chance to pause a game, catch your breath or maybe grab a quick gulp of water can become a great equalizer in a sport that is already criticized for its lack of scoring.This is not to say, however, that instant replay doesn’t have a place in sports. It does.Sports like baseball and football, and occasionally even basketball, that stop and start frequently are far more conducive to instant replay and can reap the benefits from its use. But using instant replay whenever possible should not become the gold standard with which all sports should have to measure up to.Call me old-fashioned, at the ripe old age of 21, but part of the allure that sports present is the idea that – at any moment – someone could do something great or someone could make a mistake that decides the game.That human element makes the game real. Without it a sport loses its personality.Certainly comparing the human error of the players and officials is not a perfect analogy – after all, we consider it a refereeing success if we don’t notice them for the entire game – but the two are much more similar than you may think.Banned across the sports world, steroids provide athletes with the possibility of becoming more perfect versions of themselves – playing the game better than it has ever been played before.Yet, steroids have taken harsh criticism for that very reason, while instant replay has not.So my question is: Why do we not look at instant replay the same way?If you ask me, sports need that human element, our athletes and our officials need to be fallible to some extent, or they quickly lose one of the critical parts of their identity that makes them so engaging.After all it is the belief in sports that “anything could happen” that makes the game so enticing.Take that unpredictability away and you might as well be playing the newest version of FIFA Soccer 2013 or NBA 2K13 collecting dust on your bookshelf. With how great the graphics are getting these days, there wouldn’t be much of a difference.Nick is a junior majoring in journalism and political science.

Initial details of trade relief announced

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released initial details for a trade assistance package to support farmers and ranchers struggling with oversupply and low prices due to international trade conflicts. The agency plans to allocate as much as $16 billion, including $14.5 billion in direct payments to producers through the Market Facilitation Program (MFP). In a press conference President Donald Trump promised quick action for the nations’ farmers.Secretary Sonny Perdue also praised the measure.“China hasn’t played by the rules for a long time and President Trump is standing up to them, sending the clear message that the United States will no longer tolerate their unfair trade practices, which include non-tariff trade barriers and the theft of intellectual property. President Trump has great affection for America’s farmers and ranchers, and he knows they are bearing the brunt of these trade disputes. In fact, I’ve never known of a president that has been more concerned or interested in farmer wellbeing and long-term profitability than President Trump,” Perdue said. “The plan we are announcing today ensures farmers do not bear the brunt of unfair retaliatory tariffs imposed by China and other trading partners. Our team at USDA reflected on what worked well and gathered feedback on last year’s program to make this one even stronger and more effective for farmers. Our farmers work hard, are the most productive in the world, and we aim to match their enthusiasm and patriotism as we support them.”In an effort to not influence planting decisions, USDA says that MFP Payments will be on a per acre planted basis in 2019. Producers of alfalfa hay, barley, canola, corn, soybeans, and wheat (among others) will receive a payment based on a single county rate multiplied by a farm’s total plantings to those crops in aggregate in 2019. Dairy producers will receive a per hundredweight payment on production history. Hog producers will receive a payment based on inventory for a timeframe to be released later.These payments will be made in three rounds with first set to be paid in late July or early August. USDA says that this depends on the practicality of turnaround after the Farm Service Agency crop reporting is completed by July 15. If conditions warrant, the second and third payments are expected to be made in November and January, respectively.Additionally, USDA has designated $1.4 billion for commodity purchases through the Food Purchase and Distribution Program (FPDP) as well as $100 million for the development of new export markets through the Agricultural Trade Promotion Program (ATP).Agricultural groups across the board were supportive, and appreciative, of the measures.“Farmers in Ohio, and across the country, are experiencing a lot of difficulties right now. Weather is preventing a lot of farmers from getting their crop planted, market prices continue to struggle, and the damage done to ethanol demand have impacted farmers negatively,” said Jon Miller, Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association president.OCWGA has worked in tandem with the National Corn Growers Association and the National Association of Wheat Growers to encourage additional actions the Administration could take to open global markets and provide more certainty to corn farmers.“We look forward to seeing the specific details of what President Trump announced today, and we look forward to continuing to grow a crop that helps feed, fuel, and produce fiber for the world.” Miller said.last_img read more

Friedrichs’ Grateful For Community Support

first_imgEarly in 2011, Georgie and Abi Friedrichs and their family’s home, in Murphys Creek near Toowoomba, was devastated by flooding, damaging their home beyond repair. While their living situation since hasn’t been ideal, the help of their local community, including the Touch Football community, has helped the family get back to some sort of normality. And it wasn’t just support from the South West Queensland Touch Football community that helped the Friedrichs’ family, with Touch Football ACT also donating money to the cause. Earlier in the year, Touch Football ACT held a Charity Cup event after parts of Queensland were devastated by floods. They raised $4,000 from the event, and after hearing about the Touch Football-loving Friedrichs’ and their situation, decided to contribute the money to the family. For 18-year-old Abi and 16-year-old Georgie, the generosity of people, some they didn’t even know, overwhelmed the girls, who are extremely grateful for the amount of help that they’ve received. “We’ve had heaps of support from people that we don’t even know or remember, just workplaces and friends from when you were little. Our Touch friends as well, our club sides, have been really helpful, just helping you move on from what happened and actually realising that you are not exactly the same as you were so that’s been really good,” Abi said. The Friedrichs’ have been through a lot this year, but their positive outlook has held them in good stead, while they’ve also realised what is important. “It’s just figuring out what you haven’t got, like clothes, and things that you took for granted, just small things and things that you can’t get back like photos and books. You figure out what you haven’t got and figure out if you need it again because once it’s gone you realise that you didn’t really need it.”Touch Football has been a big part of the girls’ lives, with Georgie recently making the Queensland Under 16’s team that will travel to New Zealand in December. Attending the National Youth Championships is something that they both enjoy, with the opportunity to play teams from across Australia an exciting part of the event for the girls. “Being able to play against different states and different teams from different regions, you get so used to playing the regions that you are in, you get so used to seeing the same faces, it’s just good to play other teams,” Abi said. The Friedrichs’ received good news recently when they got approval to build a new house on their property, this time on higher ground.“We’ve actually been living in the house that’s been destroyed, we had some very nice people rebuild the side of the house and do the chip rocking, it’s smaller and is more open to the elements than it was but it is liveable,” Abi said. “Hopefully building starts this weekend. It took forever to get the approval but now that we’ve got it, it will hopefully be back up by Christmas.”last_img read more

He’s one of the best top, top players in the world,” said Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference for Sunday’s clash with Bournemouth.”Attacking wise he’s done really well but he’s a big lad, can win headers, tackles, he’s been the same as the others. The attitude has been perfect and that’s key, you should be tired towards the end of every single game he’s been top class and we’re looking to build a team around of course but there are so many quality players.” last_img read more

He said: “But as well I must say I inherited a team of men when I came to Arsenal – this was the team that won in 98. “Adams, Bould, Winterburn, Keown, Dixon that was the core of the team. It was branded Arsenal players who were ready to die for the club. “You could go after the game in the fight in the corridors you would know they would not leave you alone – this was the type of players I had at the start. “They were ready to go to war with you, you could be in the trenches with them.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
