Hogg makes first start for Scotland

first_imgHogg, who comes from a renowned rugby family, said: “It’s a dream come true to play international rugby.  When I was a kid we’d play full contact rugby in the street in the Weensland area of Hawick. I’d be about five and there would be kids there up to about 12 or 13-years-old and you’d always think about what it would be like to play for Scotland. Now I’ve got the opportunity to win for Scotland at Murrayfield – brilliant.”Sunday’s match is a 67,144 full-house at Murrayfield and supporters are again reminded to allow extra time to reach the stadium on account of ongoing road and tram works in Edinburgh, while supporters travelling by train from the north, north-east, Tayside and Fife are also advised of engineering works being carried out by Network Rail which will extend their journey times. Robinson had earned his first startGlasgow Warriors teenage full-back Stuart Hogg will make his first start for Scotland in Sunday’s RBS 6 Nations Championship match against France at Murrayfield.Hogg, a product of the Hawick club, will be joined by his Warriors’ team-mates, centre Graeme Morrison and flanker John Barclay in the starting line-up, while a fourth change in personnel from the team that lost against Wales earlier this month sees Edinburgh Rugby’s Mike Blair preferred to his fellow British Lion, Chris Cusiter at scrum-half.There are two further positional switches with Rory Lamont moving to the right wing and his elder brother Sean moving to outside centre.Cusiter and Nick De Luca are now on the bench, where Richie Vernon will be involved for the first time in a match-day 22 since the Rugby World Cup pool match against England last October.Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: “Stuart Hogg did well off the bench in Cardiff, stood out in the A team victory over England Saxons and has been one of Glasgow’s most consistent performers this season. He fully deserves his first start.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scotland’s Stuart Hogg (R) runs at Wales’ James Hook during the Six Nations International rugby union match between Wales and Scotland at the MIllennium stadium in Cardiff, Wales on February 12 2012.

COVID-19: As offices reopen, here’s what to expect if you’re worried…

Tippett, Associate Professor, School of Law, University of OregonIf you’re among the tens of millions of people returning to work or preparing to do so after months sheltering in place, you may be worried it will put you and your family at increased risk of exposure to COVID-19.The dilemma may be especially stark for the millions of Americans who can expect to see a significant cut in their unemployment insurance benefits near the end of July, when the US$600 per week subsidy from the federal government is set to expire.As a professor specializing in employment law, I don’t have a lot of reassurance to offer. Employment law is a patchwork at the best of times – let alone during a global pandemic – and legal protections may not cover your situation. Like so many of the challenges people are facing right now, you may be mostly on your own, negotiating the least bad of many bad options.Here is a basic overview of what your options are under some common scenarios.I’ve been called back to the office, but I don’t like the idea of being in an enclosed space for nine hours a day.Workers have good reason to worry about indoor spaces, as scientists increasingly acknowledge that the virus may be airborne.If you have a medical condition that makes you especially vulnerable to the coronavirus, you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. That means your employer needs to engage in a dialogue with you to figure out if there is a way to limit your exposure – such as remote work, a temporary reassignment or a modified shift.Alternatively, some states are allowing medically vulnerable workers to refuse work and remain on unemployment insurance.[The Conversation’s newsletter explains what’s going on with the coronavirus pandemic. Subscribe now.]If the business is opening in defiance of a state or local order, you might be able to file a complaint with a state workplace health and safety agency. Or you could try negotiating a temporary or intermittent remote work arrangement with your employer.Everyone else has little choice but to head back to the office.Law professor Michael Z. Green and the author discuss the difficult choices workers face in returning to work.I believe I’m being asked to work in unsafe conditions.If you live in a state or city that has adopted a mask requirement – and your worksite is not allowing or enforcing the mask rules – look into how that requirement is being enforced. In Oregon, for example, the governor has tasked the state Occupational Safety and Health Agency with enforcing the rule. By contrast, the Texas governor’s mask order is being enforced – somewhat inconsistently – by local law enforcement.For other safety-related concerns, the first thing you are expected to do is talk to your employer about the unsafe condition. Be specific about the condition that concerns you and the fact that you are worried about your safety.If you are unionized, conveying your concern to the union will enable it to address the problem on behalf of everyone. Even if you’re not unionized, banding together with other employees to advocate for safer working conditions is protected under the National Labor Relations Act.If your employer does not address your safety concerns, you can complain to the state workplace safety agency or the local branch of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The agency should send an inspector to examine the situation or at least send a letter to the employer inquiring about your complaint.In the meantime, you should refuse to work only if you have no “reasonable alternative” and the unsafe condition would pose a “real danger of death or serious injury.”I have to go to work but have children at home and no child care options.If you work for a company with fewer than 500 employees, you may be eligible for up to 12 weeks of paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. But if you’ve been using this leave over the spring or summer, you may be in a dicey situation by the fall if schools do not fully reopen.Beyond those 12 weeks of leave, companies are not required to make accommodations for employee child care issues. But failing to do so can make for bad PR, as Florida State University discovered when it tried to ban parents from watching their kids while working remotely.I live with a family member who is in a vulnerable population, and I don’t want to expose the person to the virus.If you need to care for the family member – and work for a company with fewer than 500 employees – you may be eligible for leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. Your employer might request documentation that a health care provider advised the family member to self-quarantine.Otherwise, you may be out of luck – and may not even get unemployment insurance if you refuse to work. That may mean doing your best to limit your exposure at work and transmission at home.I think I just got sick from exposure to the coronavirus at work.You should be eligible for two weeks of paid sick leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act if you work for a company with fewer than 500 employees. If you are still sick after that, you may be eligible for Family and Medical Leave. You’ll also want to check your company’s sick leave policy.You might be eligible to file for workers’ compensation, which covers medical costs and provides some wage replacement for workers who are injured because of work. State law varies a lot when it comes to workers’ compensation, including whether infectious diseases like COVID-19 count as a workplace injury. Your claim will also depend on whether you can show that you contracted the coronavirus at work – as opposed to exposure from other places. Some states are issuing presumptions that certain kinds of front-line workers – like health care workers and first responders – contracted the virus at work.My company asked me to sign a contract saying I waive my legal rights if I contract COVID-19.If you are presented with a waiver to return to work, consider asking whether you are required to sign it. Sometimes workplace contracts are actually optional, but you may not find out without asking directly or reading the fine print.But even if signing is mandatory, workers compensation claims are generally not waivable. In other words, if you contract COVID-19 as a result of a workplace exposure, a waiver form shouldn’t be a barrier to filing a claim and potentially receiving compensation.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Before the Boom of the family house started, generations have naturally lived under one roof. Now the society moves closer together due to climbing construction and real estate prices. This is an opportunity and a positive process against urban sprawl and to counteract the social isolation.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterFor private builders, the semi-detached house is a financially and resource-efficient solution for living together under one roof, for compact housing, with due respect for the demands of individual privacy and local conditions. The house is an outstanding example of a young couple taking some risk to contribute to a sustainable development, attractive spatial planning on the highest ecological standards.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterIn this semi-detached house, the young architects are both builders of the entire buidling and sellers of one half. Based on the budget and the desire to create sustainable housing, the decision was made to build a semi-detached house of two entities of 125 square meters and two carports, on an area of around 600 square meters.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe challenge to create something beautiful with little resources and with the restriction of the construction site required a carefully planned house up to the furnishings. The aim of the architect couple was to create an ecological architecture that does not fall into sterility and artificiality. As a model for this purpose the architects studied housing typologies that have been developed over generations. The facade design is based on the atmospheric qualities of these traditional structures. Each half of the semi-detached house receives its individual fingerprint.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionThe semi-detached house, has been carefully adapted to the natural terrain, it fits both respectfully and confidently into the surroundings. The volume and the roof shape transists between the heterogeneous buildings and rooflandscape in the area. The architects made skillfull use of the hillside without great earth movement. In the interior space, the hillside becomes noticeable in steps towards the living room and the terrace.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe sensitivity of the house can be experienced both in the centimeter-accurate utilization of the floorarea as well as in the execution of the materialization and the details. Above all, however, the origin of the local woods and the surface treatments have been harminized between the, exclusively regional, entrepreneurs, which makes the interior harmonious and unified.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThis very well thought trough planning saved on the essential costs, the property, the floor space and the volume. The compact building creates intimacy. At the same time the rooms appear generous. This is achieved by skilfully incorporating the topography into the building and spatial sequences designed down to the last detail, such as visual axes.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterDespite its simple timber frame structure insulated with cellulose the compact volume of the semi-detached house typology as well as the three floors at minimum room height cause the house an excellent energy balance. The low-energy house is heated by a geothermal heat pump. An artificial ventilation was omitted for cost reasons. Instead, there is a fully programmable skylight at the highest point of the staircase providing fresh air and night cooling.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterSave this picture!© Adolf BereuterProject gallerySee allShow lessTheatre House / Cadaval & Solà-MoralesSelected ProjectsHotel Mercer 5* at Mansion Castelar / Cruz y Ortiz ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Semi Detached House on a Hillside / MWArchitektenSave this projectSaveSemi Detached House on a Hillside / MWArchitekten Projects ArchDaily Lukas Mähr, Carmen Wurz Photographs Year:  “COPY” CopyHouses•Hohenems, Austria 2019 “COPY” Houses Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Adolf Bereuter Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Cosentino, PREFA, Roto, Stiebel Eltron, Thede & Witte Semi Detached House on a Hillside / MWArchitekten Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Adolf Bereuter+ 20Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyAbout this officeMWArchitektenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHohenemsAustriaPublished on April 18, 2019Cite: “Semi Detached House on a Hillside / MWArchitekten” 18 Apr 2019.

SCH | an den Schichtgründen is low-priced housing with a whiff of magic. The finely detailed construction of the rust-colored, perforated aluminum balustrades sets off the carefully layered and vibrantly cadenced forms which lend a unique allure to this high-density, mid-rise housing estate.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaThe balustrades frame the airy and attractive apartments and mediate between the privacy of the individual apartment and the spaces of the estate and the city beyond. The buildings’ powerfully sculptural facades structure 130m long building fronts into attractive and well-proportioned segments and establish clear and legible street addresses, imparting the estate a distinctive urban identity. The Schichtgründe are a brownfield urban redevelopment zone in Vienna’s historically industrial district of Floridsdorf.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaThe chemical work of the Georg Schicht family was dismantled in 2014; in its stead a new-built, high density, largely residential district for 2000 inhabitants has been built. The 200 affordably priced apartments of SCH form the western edge of this urban neighborhood, facing upon the Hans-Czermak-Gasse and the woods and fields beyond it.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaThe characteristics of this rather singular site governed the project’s conception and design. Although the woods and fields are part of Vienna’s protected Green Belt and will offer the estate’s residents a magnificent and permanent panoramic view, Vienna’s long-term development plans call for the Hans-Czermak-Gasse to be built-out into a major North-South traffic axis in 10-20 years. This means that, although the situation is presently almost bucolically quiet, it will be transformed by a major vehicular artery in the foreseeable future. Schichtgründe’s masterplan conceived this edge as a closed street front, which shields the rest of the settlement from traffic noise.Save this picture!Plan sectionSCH’s parcel was then composed into two layers. The street-front layer is a single thin and articulated block, six stories high in the south, seven in the north. The stairwells are located street side, creating legible entry zones. The living rooms and kitchens face west to the street and towards the view; the bedrooms face east onto a sheltered courtyard. The garden-side layer, to the east of this court, is composed of three compact, five-story blocks.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaThe green space of the courtyard flows between these open blocks and connects it to a green garden and a pedestrian zone to the east. Due to this arrangement, all apartments face onto green and attractive spaces with interesting views – despite the density of the quarter as a whole. For affordably priced apartments, the individual units are unusually spacious and airy. Many are quite loft-like in character. Special attention has been given to the stairwells and common zones; these are generously dimensioned, finely detailed and full of light. Rich colour enhances the architecture.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaThe rust-red, metallic-powder coatings of the balustrades accent the dusty rose stucco of the main facades. White window frames and reveals enliven the fronts. The blue, metallic-glazed render of the entry zones is enclosed by precast walls and canopies whose white-cement concrete surfaces are finely sandblasted for tactile effect. The lively yet harmonious color scheme reinforces and accentuates the architectural composition.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaProject gallerySee allShow lessHospice de Liefde, Center for Terminal Care / de Kovel architecten + studio AAANSelected ProjectsHouse By The Forest and The Pond / JRA Jarousek.Rochova.ArchitektiSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:1210 Viena, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Indiana and Illinois Pork Farmers Donate Ground Pork to Help Feed…

first_img Ground Pork donated by Illinois Pork Producers, in partnership with Indiana Pork, is ready to be distributed to Food Finders Food Bank clients.Thanks to a recent win by the Purdue Football team, Hoosiers in need will have ground pork available to them this holiday season.“Indiana Pork and Illinois Pork Producers partnered for the ‘Pork Power Challenge’ during the recent Purdue vs. University of Illinois football game,” said Jeanette Merritt, Director of Checkoff Programs for Indiana Pork. “We placed a $1000 bet on the outcome of the game. If the University of Illinois won, Indiana Pork would have donated $1000 for ground pork to a food bank in Illinois. But since Purdue won the football game, Illinois Pork had to donate $1000 to a food bank in Indiana!”The $1000 donation was made to Food Finders Food Bank in Lafayette. Food Finders worked with Lafayette-based Beutler Meats Processing to process and package the ground pork. The ground pork is now available at Food Finders for their clients this holiday season.“We are ecstatic to receive this donation of ground pork,” said Kier Crites, Chief Operating Officer of Food Finders. “Protein remains one of the top items our clients request for their families and is always in high demand. Donations like this help to save the food bank money and go a long way towards offering nutritious foods to the families we serve”.“The entire year, but especially during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, Hoosiers are compassionate to the hunger issue around the state,” said Merritt. “It was fun to partner with the Illinois Pork Producers to provide ground pork to Hoosiers who may be struggling a bit this holiday season.”In 2016, Food Finders Food Bank distributed 6.6 million pounds of food throughout North Central Indiana.Source: Indiana Pork SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana and Illinois Pork Farmers Donate Ground Pork to Help Feed the… Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 19, 2018 Facebook Twitter Indiana and Illinois Pork Farmers Donate Ground Pork to Help Feed the Hungry SHARE Previous articleHarvest Slowed to a CrawlNext articleUSDA Cancels Trade Aid to Smithfield Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more
