Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgWith Kurtley Beale to come into the mix, the Wallabies could yet employ three ball-players in midfield, as England did in Argentina when using Slade and Alex Lozowski (and later Piers Francis) outside Ford. Interesting times.Jordie upstagedThe one Super Rugby match last weekend saw the Chiefs inflict a first home defeat of the year on Hurricanes, 17-14.There were only four tries but this was another belting match, and for once Jordie Barrett came off second best in the full-back battle because Damien McKenzie was at the heart of most of the Chiefs’ best moments. He would walk into most national teams. England win an epic in Argentina after late Denny Solomona try, Scotland show Gregor Townsend’s hallmark in Singapore and Israel Folau ends his try drought for Australia Focused: George Ford takes a selfie with fans after his superb performance for England in Argentina (Getty) FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREI’ve sometimes criticised sides for not taking an easy three points, but the mentality to score in fives and sevens by going for a try appears to be ingrained in New Zealand.Between them, the Barrett brothers have kicked just seven penalties in this year’s Super Rugby and when the Canes might have kicked a late penalty to secure a bonus point against Chiefs, they stuck to their guns and got it via a try by Wes Goosen.Chiefs tormentor: Damian McKenzie epitomises the attacking mindset of New Zealand rugby (Getty)As commentator Tony Johnson informed us, 65 of the Canes’ 85 Super Rugby tries this year have come within three phases – “They strike like lightning,” he said – and they are not alone in changing the mindset.At one point McKenzie fell heavily after taking an aerial ball (and calling a mark) under pressure from Julian Savea near his own line. And yet he sprung up and was away, looking to attack. You have to love that.SINNERSNo need for dramaticsTJ Perenara is a fabulous player, tipped by many to start at scrum-half in the New Zealand-Lions series. His extensive repertoire of skills includes a stream of tireless support runs, a deadly grubber kick and a mean rip tackle (just ask Western Force).It would be a pity if he spoilt things with simulation of the sort we saw against Chiefs, when he went down theatrically after a gentle nudge in the back from Aaron Cruden as both men chased the ball. Cut it out!Fall guy: TJ Perenara is tackled by Tawera Kerr-Barlow during the Hurricanes’ home defeat (Getty)One in the chopsTwo Scottish stars, two cut cheeks. The injury to Stuart Hogg against the Crusaders was freakish, the Lions full-back running full pelt past Conor Murray just as the Munsterman raised his elbow.The blow left Hogg reeling from a heavily bleeding gash and if an X-ray confirms that his tour is over, what a crying shame. Off-colour against the Provincial Barbarians, Hogg had played less than 20 minutes in Christchurch when the accident occurred. The New Zealand public hasn’t seen just what a thrilling talent he is.Finn Russell also came a cropper, taking a hit to the face whilst putting in the smart kick that Tim Visser caught and scored from against Italy. Like Hogg, he required stitches but unlike Hogg he returned to run the show.Wounded Lion: Stuart Hogg is treated after colliding with team-mate Conor Murray’s elbow (Getty)Flaws remainOne footnote to the Lions’ 12-3 win over Crusaders. Yes, it’s an excellent result and yes, key aspects such as line speed and breakdown work and set-piece offer real encouragement.However, the lack of attacking execution cannot be excused just because the Lions are bedding in new combinations. There were new caps aplenty across the world – for example, South Africa’s whole back three against France were on debut – and we didn’t see the sort of errors elsewhere that the Lions made in Christchurch. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS SAINTSSaturday night feverThere would have been slaps on the back at the BBC on Saturday night after their decision to televise England’s two-match series in Argentina.The first Test in San Juan was an absolute cracker, with the Pumas leading 7-0, 17-13, 31-23 and 34-31 at various junctures before being undone by Denny Solomona’s individual brilliance at the death.England’s 38-34 victory is surely their best-ever result in Argentina given the absence of 30 players. Ten Englishmen made their Test debut and if teenager Tom Curry has got much of the plaudits for his non-stop tackling, then fellow back-row Mark Wilson matched him stride for stride.George Ford ran the game beautifully and kicked like a dream, Henry Slade showed touches of magic, including a show-and-go and grubber to lay on a try for Jonny May, and Harry Williams brought to mind Jason Leonard’s Test debut in the same country 27 years ago.Well done: Eddie Jones with Tom Curry, who had an awesome debut for England in San Juan (Getty)To wrestle the game back after the quick-fire tries by Jeronimo de la Fuente and Joaquin Tucalet around the 50-minute mark showed a strength of character that even hard-to-please Eddie Jones had to admire.“We’re disappointed with our performance because we gave them too many points,” said the England coach. “But what we did show was a ton of real team ethic. Ten young guys came in and did their job brilliantly.“The other thing I liked was that young guys made mistakes but they didn’t dwell on them; Denny Solomona makes two horrific defence mistakes but then scores a brilliant try. The ability to rebound is so important.”Match winner: Denny Solomona scores the last of the game’s eight tries to see England home (Getty)Gregor off the markAnother satisfied coach is Gregor Townsend, whose Scotland reign began with a five-try, 34-13 win over Italy in Singapore.After a lively first five minutes, the 28°C temperature and 82% humidity threatened to take all the pace out of the match. At one point, Kiwi referee Paul Williams told Scotland’s ‘water boys’ to get off the pitch, and you can’t blame Dr James Robson and Co for trying to sneak some water into the players whenever they could.Excess luggage: John Barclay carries Edoardo Gori during Scotland’s victory over the Azzurri (Getty)But two Scottish tries just before half-time got things back on track in a match watched by a crowd of 8,734.The first, by Ali Price, had Townsend’s hallmark because the move started when Finn Russell feigned to kick a penalty to the corner and instead passed the ball in the other direction. How delightful that Townsend is going to bring his Glasgow philosophy to the international arena.Later, we saw Ross Ford score his first Scotland try for nine years and then grab another six minutes later! The hooker’s second followed some sweet offloading by Duncan Taylor and Damien Hoyland and a typically impudent reverse pass by Russell.“I’m pleased to get the win but we have a few things to work on,” said Townsend. “We knew conditions were going to be tough. The players kept believing in themselves and played some good rugby in the second half. Our set-pieces were key to our victory.”Ross the boss: hooker Ross Ford finishes off a sublime Scotland attack to get a try double (Getty)Izzy makes Fiji dizzyScotland’s next opponents, Australia, had more difficulty disposing of Fiji in Melbourne than might be supposed by the 37-14 scoreline.One notable event was a brace of tries by Israel Folau. The full-back scored 17 tries in his first 26 Tests but only three in his next 26 Tests and he ended a 12-game drought by first catching a high cross-kick and then bursting on to Bernard Foley’s pop pass for his second.Back on the scoreboard: Wallaby Israel Folau celebrates scoring his second try against Fiji (Getty)Karmichael Hunt, 30, who played pro rugby league and Aussie Rules, made his Wallaby debut at 12. He and Foley often switched around as Michael Cheika works on creating the sort of playmaker axis that worked so well at RWC 2015, when Matt Giteau wore 12. The tourists need to up their game fast. The Highlanders match on Tuesday provides the next opportunity and it needs to be taken.Won two, lost one: the Lions run out at AMI Stadium ahead of their 12-3 win v Crusaderslast_img read more

What the joyous solitude of early hermits can teach us about…

first_img Please enter your name here In today’s world, loneliness seems to have reached epidemic proportions. Countless studies have highlighted the serious and negative impact that loneliness has on our health, our sense of well-being, and our ability to thrive in an increasingly chaotic world. Most recently, the urgency of the problem led the U.K. to appoint a minister for loneliness. Here in the U.S., winter is a particularly lonely time for elderly Americans.But loneliness (feeling alone) and solitude (being alone) are not the same thing. And lessons can be learned from those who have found solitude essential for inspiration.In praise of solitudeSolitude – being alone – has long been praised as a necessary condition for creativity. Author Virginia Woolf, in her book “A Room of One’s Own,” offered an extended meditation on the writer’s need for solitude. So did many poets. In their writings, May Sarton (“alone one is never lonely”) and William Wordsworth (“the bliss of solitude”) were especially eloquent in their praise of solitude. Poet Marianne Moore has even argued that “the cure for loneliness is solitude.”My research on the history of religious hermits shows that there have long been individuals who seek solitude in remote and silent places, and there are many lessons to be learned from them. The etymological history of the word “hermit” is itself telling: “Hermit” comes from an ancient Greek word, “eremos,” that means both a desolate and lonely place and a state of being alone.St. George of Choziba hermitage, Judean Desert, Israel. Kim Haines-Eitzen, CC BYHermits exist in many of the world’s major religious traditions: They are individuals who choose temporary or permanent solitude in remote and isolated locations, such as mountains, caves and deserts. These locations are frequently depicted as sites for revelation and transformation.Romantic longing of solitudeThe emergence of hermits in early Christianity is particularly striking.When early Christians read their Bible, they found the word eremos referring to places for important events: the stories of the Israelites wandering in the wilderness for forty years, how Jesus went to a “lonely place” to pray, or how he was tempted by the devil in the desert. These stories evoked images of remote landscapes that most Christians never visited.St. George of Choziba monastery, Judean Desert, Israel. Kim Haines-Eitzen, CC BYIn the fourth century, however, a monastic movementemerged in Egypt, as some Christians began to withdraw permanently into “the desert.” The harshness of a dry and barren landscape suited Christians eager to pursue an asceticlife.A common theme in stories about early Christian desert hermits is a desire to leave the distractions of urban life and live a precarious existence in isolation in order to achieve holiness.The most famous Christian hermit was Antony, whose story was told by Athanasius, the fourth-century bishop of Alexandria. As Athanasius tells it, Antony one day heard a passage from the Gospel of Matthew in his church:“If you want to be perfect, go, sell all your possessions and give to the poor, and come follow me, and you will have treasure in heaven.” (Matthew 19:21)He felt the passage had spoken to him directly.Antony sold his property and departed for the desert. The story of Antony’s withdrawal into the desert became an example for later Christians eager to pursue solitude and contemplation. Athanasius says that, in spite of his quest for solitude, the desert “was made a city” by visitors to Antony’s hermitage and by monks who wished to emulate him. Antony needed to move into more and more remote areas to find the isolation he was seeking.St. Anthony visits St. Paul in the wilderness. Albrecht Dürer (Germany, Nuremberg), 1471-1528.The joy of lonelinessEventually, forms of monasticism developed that embraced both the solitary and the communal: Monasteries developed around communities of monks in the mountains and canyons of Egypt, Sinai and Palestine. Nearby caves served as hermitages.Is there joy in loneliness? adrazahl, CC BY-NDThis way of life was in keeping with what many Christians believed – that suffering was necessary for salvation. They praised the hermits who rejected the comforts of city and adopted the communal life. To them, the hermits were models of holiness and, paradoxically, happiness.Loneliness was transformed into joy. Athansius describes Antony’s face as “radiant” after a long period of isolation.The lives of hermits may seem distant from our busy contemporary lives. But the romantic appeal of an unencumbered and undistracted life has not disappeared. Hermits in the 21st century come from all walks of life, religious and secular, but share with those from the past a longing for quiet solitude and simplicity.Could the wisdom of artists, poets, and religious hermits offer comfort in a time of loneliness today?

Due to the differences between these two programs, it was created an independent access for each one, placing them in different levels and taking advantage of the natural ground’s slope.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe first floor is all composed of Gomos System units. Considering that the maximum building area permitted by law was quite small, the requested empty space was used to separate the housing units. Designed and licensed as a collective housing building, with this feature this project offers the main advantages of single houses: clearly individualized entrances and a complete acoustic separation between the different units.The ground floor is shaped by prefabricated slabs and structural panels in the external perimeter. This area was conceived in a very flexible way: it’s possible to add or remove compartments or let the whole floor functioning as a big open-space. Thus, the users may adapt the space according to their needs.In the whole building, the structural material – precast concrete – is directly exposed, without any additional finishing, thus reducing the resources, the manpower and the arts involved in the construction process and, consequently, reducing its environmental impact. This approach has a direct effect in the acceleration of the building process: all its components are fully prepared in factory and quickly assembled in situ, performing at once as structure, insulation and cladding elements.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Importance of Antibacterial Surfaces in Healthcare ArchitectureArticlesHouse of Cracks / ChaofficeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:EN224, Vale de Cambra, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

Technological innovation by JustGiving enables the automatic creation of fundraising pages for the first timeJustGiving and Cancer Research UK announced today that more women than ever before participating in Race for Life 2011 have set up online fundraising pages since the event opened for entries on 17th January. An increase of 30% on the same period in 2010.For the first time ever, women registering on the Race for Life website can automatically receive a JustGiving page, a seamless process that has led to the massive increase in women fundraising online.This technological innovation was made possible by JustGiving’s ground-breaking development of ‘APIs’ (http://www.justgiving.com/developer), the web services that enable charities to use JustGiving’s fundraising services and adapt them to their specific needs and brands, easily and effectively.Jo Warner, Digital Senior Manager of Cancer Research UK said: “We know that the Race for Life participants who choose to fundraise online raise on average 50% more than offline fundraisers. As a result, it has been a high priority for us to make it easier and more tempting than ever before for women to start fundraising online for Race for Life 2011. JustGiving has enabled us to do this by releasing innovative API technology.“For the first time ever, we have been able to take JustGiving’s page-creation process and embed it in to the Race for Life website. We are thrilled that the numbers from the first five weeks show that more women are fundraising online compared to last year as a result!”Anne-Marie Huby, MD of JustGiving said: “Opening up the JustGiving platform is a pivotal moment for JustGiving. It means that charities and their agency partners can now integrate our tools seamlessly with their own sites and take advantage of our continued investment in technology and innovation at no extra cost and with no upfront investment. Cancer Research UK’s early success with our APIs shows how innovation can deliver superb results for charities in spite of tough economic conditions.”– Ends –For more information please contact Sally Chambers at JustGiving on [email protected] to EditorAbout JustGivingJustGiving (www.justgiving.com) is the UK’s largest online fundraising platform and has helped 12 million people raise £700 million for more than 9,000 charities since 2001.
