Fiji’s Nemani Nadolo scores hat-trick against Georgia

Posted On Jun 23 2021 by

first_img Fiji’s Nemani Nadolo scores hat-trick against GeorgiaFiji had to wait for three weeks to play their first Autumn Nations Cup match, but it took them only 72 seconds to score a try.Nemani Nadolo has been absent from the international stage for two years, but it took the Fiji winger just 63 minutes to score a hat-trick.Vern Cotter’s first Test in charge of Fiji ended with a 38-24 victory in this seventh-place play-off against Georgia at BT Murrayfield – and it was an entertaining match to watch. Fiji’s delayed arrival in the tournament after a Covid-19 outbreak lived up to expectations as the islanders scored six tries in all.The first try came within two minutes as Fiji launched an attack from a scrum in their opponents’ 22. Josua Tuisova and Albert Tuisue made strong carries in the centre of the field, then the ball bobbled wide for Nemani Nadolo to collect and power through Soso Matiashvil and Akaki Tabutsadze to score in the corner. His other two tries came in four second-half minutes. The first was created by a Ben Volavola grubber kick, which Nadolo bent low to collect and then he slid over in the corner.The second came from a Fiji lineout in the Georgia 22, Sam Matavesi looped round and fed Nadolo, who was able to burst through two defenders to complete his hat-trick.All smiles: Nemani Nadolo enjoys scoring his third try against Georgia (Getty Images)Fiji’s other tries came from debutant Johnny Dyer, who powered over from close range following a five-metre lineout, Tuisova, who was put into space on the wing by a long Levani Botia pass, and Mesulame Kunavula, who also marked his first cap by crossing the line after a superb offload from Tuisova.However, it wasn’t one-way traffic in Edinburgh as Georgia scored three tries of their own. The first came in the 23rd minute as Giorgi Melikidze drove over from a couple of metres while Beka Saginadze scored twice in the final 12 minutes.There was little doubt over the Man of the Match, though, as Nadolo picked up the gong. His three tries mean he has now drawn level with Vereniki Goneva as Fiji’s top try-scorer, with both having 22 Test tries to their names.This match proved to be worth the wait for both Nadolo and Fiji. The Leicester winger stars as Fiji beat the Georgians 38-24 at BT Murrayfield LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Early start: Nemani Nadolo opened the scoring after just 72 seconds (Getty Images) Leicester winger Nadolo hadn’t played for Fiji since 2018 after previously retiring from international rugby, but after opting to return to the Test arena he was quick to show he hasn’t lost his scoring touch.

Located in Orcas Island, Washington, Suncrest Residence sits among trees, rocks, ponds, and bald eagle nests. Heliotrope Architects designed this new residence to minimize site disturbance and blend in with its existing environment. The result is an award winning residence (Merit Award 2010 AIA Honor Awards for Washington Architecture). More photographs and drawings following the break.

The site is ecologically sensitive, with bald eagle nests and trees prone to blight if disturbed. Further, soil coverage is minimal over the native basalt, therefore stormwater management is a serious concern. Our clients desired a work of architecture that took into consideration these constraints and minimized site impacts while creating a work of architecture that utilized their favorite materials (wood and concrete) and connected them intimately with the land and the view. Save this picture!Our design solution situates the home where the forest gives way to a large rocky clearing with views to the sea. The structure is ‘wrapped’ around a prominent outcropping of rock and carefully situated to require a minimum of tree removal. Strict site access protocols were put in place for the duration of construction in order to minimize site disturbance, and the landscape has been carefully restored. Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschniederThe long, narrow footprint of the home allows every room a view of the sea while also retaining a strong connection to the surrounding forest. The material palette was chosen to harmonize with the colors and textures of the natural surroundings – primary materials consist of wood from the forest (doulgas fir and madrone), concrete, zinc, steel and glass. This palette has a strong dialogue with the art collection featured throughout the home – most of which is the work of the wife.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschniederProject gallerySee allShow lessWestside Bruennen / Studio LibeskindSelected ProjectsHouse On The Roof / FREAKS freearchitectsArticles Share Houses Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschnieder+ 10 Share 2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/102137/suncrest-residence-heliotrope-architects Clipboard United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/102137/suncrest-residence-heliotrope-architects Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

The architects were inspired by the traditional house want to design a house with the traditional structure accompanied by 3 separate spaces and slope roof, but using a modern and strong architectural language. At the same time, maximizing the ventilation efficiency by dividing the roof into two parts and having a courtyard; then allocating two corridors to connecting the roof. This way created a courtyard and big walls.

These spaces’ boundaries are estimated by light with different intensity and darkness. The layout utilizes the wind direction of the local area in different seasons. Approaching the house firstly is the front yard made bY the hollow clay bricks, which can absorb the rain itself and reduce the heat on the floor Following is a buffer space which created the light transition from the yard to the living room, dining room and bedroom.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe kitchen area and other functional spaces are located on the north side and go along the house, which is an advantage to traditional cooking when many family members come and visit. The mezzanine accommodates with two bedrooms, a relaxing and reading area and a long corridor connecting all spaces in the house through two stairs on both ends. We want to have a continuous space between the functional ones in and out of the house, so that the children can play and move freely, throughout the house without being confined by separate walls.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!Section 2Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessGlass Pavilion / OFIS arhitektiSelected ProjectsOTA FINE ARTS Gallery in Shanghai / B.L.U.E.

Revised Face-to-Face Code of Fundraising Practice Launched for Public Consultation

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Revised Face-to-Face Code of Fundraising Practice Launched for Public Consultation The Institute of Fundraising (‘Institute’) invites fundraisers to contribute their comments on the draft Face-to-Face Activity Code of Fundraising Practice that has been launched for public consultation. The existing Code has been revised to reflect developments in face-to-face practice and incorporate face-to-face engagement (often termed ‘prospecting’). The public consultation is for a period of 12 weeks and closes on Friday 8th August 2008.As well as reflecting the developments in face-to-face activity, the revised draft Code also details legal and best practice ./guidance in the areas of face-to-face campaign planning, the training of agents, the conduct of approaches, and identifying sites and procedures. Comments are welcome on all aspects of the draft Code, but the Institute of Fundraising is particularly interested in the sectors’ views on:– Whether face-to-face engagement should be treated in the same way as face-to-face fundraising– Whether this draft Code would help or hinder face-to-face activity?Megan Pacey, Director of Policy and Campaigns at the Institute of Fundraising, says:“It is vital that all stakeholders engaged in face-to-face activity input into this Code of Fundraising Practice consultation in order to ensure that this Code fully meets the needs of the sector and maintains a sustainable environment for face-to-face activity.“Face-to-face fundraisers have recently felt the full force of a legislative environment as they have been required to implement new solicitation statements. The challenges that many have experienced in implementing these strengthened legal requirements has demonstrated why as a sector the Codes of Fundraising Practice matter and why we must embrace self-regulation.”The revised draft Face-to-Face Activity Code of Fundraising Practice can be viewed at www.institute-of-fundraising,org.uk/currentconsultationsSubmissions should be sent by email to:[email protected] by post to:Policy TeamInstitute of FundraisingPark Place12 Lawn LaneLondonSW8 1UD-ENDS-MEDIA ENQUIRIESFor further information please contact:Diana Mackie Tel. 020 7840 1027/ 07793 802 852Institute of Fundraising email: [email protected] TO EDITORS1.

6 lessons for fundraisers from digital will-writing

If it’s Wednesday…The best day for a charity to ask for a legacy is a Wednesday. People are 1.5 times more likely to leave a gift to charity if they write their will mid-week. Howard Lake | 9 March 2018 | News 6. Generosity of the youngYounger legators are more generous, with gift sizes in the 35-44 year-old age range on average being twice as large as the 65+ year-old bracket.Dan Garrett, CEO at Farewill said: “Understanding data trends can offer charities valuable insights into donor behaviour that can be used to increase the number and value of gifts, and reach out to new audiences. Digital will-making services are perfect for this type of analysis due to the volume of data that is captured at the time of the will being written.”Farewill also claim that their stastistics show the effectiveness of their service.Freewill services result in charities raising six times as much as discounted offers, as more people take up the offer and the donations tend to be larger.Around 80% of gifts made on Farewill are residuary (i.e. the legacy is the money and property that remains after other amounts of money or property is given to others)Almost a third (28%) of wills made on Farewill include a gift to charity, which is “two times the industry standard”.

Criticism of ban on human rights centre co-founded by Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi

Posted On Jun 12 2021 by

first_imgNews News IranMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today condemned a government decision to ban the Centre for the Defence of Human Rights, an Iranian NGO that has played an active role for years in defending journalists and freedom of expression. The 2003 Nobel peace laureate, lawyer Shirin Ebadi, was one of its founders and continues to be one of its leaders.The interior ministry declared the centre “illegal” on 5 August. Although not constitutionally necessary, the centre had been requesting authorisation to operate ever since it was founded in 2002. The interior ministry always refused to issue one, without ever explaining why.“This ban is a violation of the Iranian constitution because non-governmental organisation are under no legal obligation to obtain a permit,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This is a new bid to silence human rights activists in Iran. We call on the authorities to let the centre continue its work in according with international standards.”Ebadi told Reporters Without Borders: “We did not need to ask for authorisation, but a request for a permit was nonetheless made in compliance with an Iranian law currently in force, although this law violates the constitution. Anyway, the Islamic Republic of Iran does not respect its own laws.”She added that the centre would not take the ban lying down. “We will contest the ministry’s decision and we will exhaust all the legal recourse to obtain our rights,” she saidThe ban came three weeks after one of the centre’s lawyers, Abdolfattah Soltani, was sentenced on 16 July to five years in prison for “spreading confidential information” and “opposing the regime.” Soltani’s clients included the family of Zahra Kazemi, a photographer with Iranian and Canadian dual citizenship who died in July 2003 as a result of blows to the head while in custody in Tehran.Ebadi is one of the six lawyers who founded the centre, which defends minorities, dissidents and journalists in various ways, including the provision of free legal aid.
