The Angel of the North sculpture, near Gateshead, is a symbol of a proud region going through hard times on the rugby fieldThis is not to sound patronising or like a northern send-up à la Monty Python. But probably my happiest times in rugby reporting concern the consumption of mushy peas – in the clubhouse at Orrell. In the days before TV producers started dictating to rugby’s paying public exactly when games would be allowed to begin, almost all top-class club rugby in England took place on a Saturday and was all the better for it. As often as possible, I headed for Orrell. Magnificent club.Orrell were one of the best teams of the era. They had superb facilities and were run on love and passion, not money. When they were at their peak just before professionalism, they were a frighteningly good side, they fielded the most massive pack ever spotted, and the signature forward was the marvellous Bob Kimmins, the gigantic lock who was a stirring sight.And the mushy peas? Orrell had the most convivial and appetising food in the sport. Some of my colleagues and I used to travel up to the North on the Friday so as to be in perfect position for our pre-match nosh. I’ve lost count of the number of storming matches I saw at Edge Hall Road. Or the number of narrow escapes we had as a taxi took us away just as the likes of Simon Langford, Dave Cleary and Sammy Southern were in their dangerous post-match stride.Over the years, it was also possible to see Liverpool St Helens, West Hartlepool and Waterloo play in the top tier. It was also sad when Wakefield had to fold, and Yorkshire rugby folk of my acquaintance are always telling me that the club should be reformed at least to do justice to a proud history.But what do we have now in the North? Orrell are way down the leagues, victims of the pro era. Leeds Carnegie are in the second flight. Newcastle are at the foot of the Premiership, and are anxiously recruiting to try to save themselves. Sale are more of a success story but after a disastrous start to last season they had to fight like mad to avoid relegation. After clearing out almost their whole playing staff last season when operating under the misguided Mike Brewer, they appear to have done exactly the same under the charge of the more rational Steve Diamond.But the truth is that the sport is increasingly anxious about its presence in the North. Unless Newcastle can rally and escape the drop, it could easily be that by next season only Sale are operating at the elite level at any point in England north of Leicester. We’re used to rugby league running a sport with hardly any representations from giant tracts of the country, but not rugby union.Leeds Carnegie players in despair after being relegated last season.Let us get one thing straight: a gigantic fallacy has arisen surrounding the travails of northern rugby as if there is some compelling inner reason, some in-built catastrophe, which prevents a successful pro club operating in Manchester or above. It’s as if simply being in the North means you can’t have a successful union team.This is patent nonsense. The economy is a little more vibrant elsewhere in England but not devastatingly so. The first thing that those charged with producing top clubs in the North should do is look in the mirror. Being in the North never stops you from choosing the right coach or making good deals in the transfer market. I yield to no one in my admiration for Dave Thompson, the ebullient former owner of Newcastle, who did a huge amount to establish the club. But under him, Newcastle made far too many bad coaching appointments and bad signings. With the greatest respect, I was amazed that Newcastle opted for Alan Tait as their most recent coach.Nor have the club ever been particularly wise with their signings. One senior Newcastle official once took me aside and delivered such a withering blast at Mark Andrews, the Springbok lock who they had signed, that I almost blanched. I was told that Andrews had not fitted in, that he had not proved to be an attractive character or a great player. In my usual humble way, I was forced to ask my Newcastle man why on earth their investigations had not uncovered such weaknesses in Andrews before Newcastle signed his contract.Leeds coach: Neil BackNo one would question the appointment of Neil Back as Leeds coach a few years ago but Leeds always put themselves in the gravest danger by leaving their squad denuded of true class. Back clearly needed five more class players last season, and without them Leeds were only operating at the elite level with a tier-two squad. Had the club speculated only slightly, they’d have escaped. Full stop.Nor can Sale escape the Jones lash. I’ve had almost as many great times at Sale as at Orrell, but Sale have also made bad calls. The appointment of Brewer was a disaster waiting to happen and his pruning of so many Sale stalwarts and his vituperative criticism of his own players put Sale on the back foot from the start. So did Brewer’s strategy of signing up a host of mediocre southern hemisphere players.Brian Kennedy, Sale’s owner and a man deserving of utmost respect, is correct to invest in Diamond, a hard-nosed Premiership practitioner, but the club has lost valuable years. They now have to redevelop their squad from scratch and it could take at least 18 months before the squad gels together.My point is this. It doesn’t matter where you’re playing your rugby, it doesn’t matter if you’re in a massive catchment area for rugby or a very small area. What matters is that you make the proper decisions in recruiting those who drive your club and those who play for it.And those who are defeatist about northern club rugby, those who complain of small crowds, have to remember that large crowds will roll up in Greenland provided the team is winning. Sale drew five-figure crowds during their sumptuous run six seasons ago and I’ve seen more than 10,000 people watch Newcastle at Kingston Park and Leeds at Headingley. Don’t turn around and whine if the crowds are small if you’ve just lost five on the bounce.The other feeble excuse given for the paucity of northern success is the rugby league fallacy. This holds that because rugby league exists alongside some of the northern teams, it means they can’t succeed in union. Rubbish. Rugby league is a relatively small operation, even in the North of England. Its marketeers discuss it as if it dominates the map from Watford upwards, whereas it doesn’t. Not even close. Indeed, the inner-Manchester and Newcastle areas are on the ever-growing list of towns and cities in England and Wales where pro rugby league has been a failure. No excuses for union. A few hundred fans may be lost to the game, and thousands of the uncommitted may decide to spend their money at Premier League football. But London and the Midlands have the odd major football club, too. Let us be more sympathetic on some counts. We’ve established that a lack of investors has held back some clubs in the North. Orrell were wrecked when Dave Whelan, owner of Wigan FC, made a spectacularly ill-judged incursion into union with Orrell, leaving the grand club high and dry – although it’s marvellous to hear the club is now rediscovering itself in the lower leagues.Sale are rebuilding but coach Steve Diamond says they can be a giant: “Six million people live within 40 minutes of us, which is more people than in NZ” Yet Kennedy and Thompson have been among the most loyal of benefactors, and I still insist that given good rugby decisions, there’s no reason why at least three northern clubs should not survive and thrive at the top of the Premiership and in Europe.There is some truth in the assertion that the North misses divisional rugby, because it was a great tradition boosted by glorious wins by the North XV against touring sides. It was appealing in the amateur era for fervent and relatively small rugby clubs to feed players through to the North team.Yet with apologies to those traditions, we’re now in the era of stand-alone pro teams leading a splendidly tribal and hard existence. Gradually, the Premiership is becoming more successful. It has been set back by the recession and by the dire performances of the national team since 2003. But it will recover, is there forever.Those who say that the Premiership won’t feel complete without representations from every area of England are correct. But no one deserves a place in the division as of right. Even Leicester have to make the right calls in terms of coaching and playing staff. And if the northern clubs can’t compete with the huge capacity at Welford Road, they must make correct decisions with their home grounds as well – most of the new rugby league grounds are merely big sheds with seats, but at least they have capacity and a certain cachet.There are some disadvantages with life in northern rugby, life will never be easy. But professional rugby was never meant to be. There are millions of rugby followers in the North, huge population centres, tens of thousands of players, millions of people looking for a day out. The sport needs them, needs big clubs at the extremities and at the heart.But it’s up to the northern clubs to come to the party, as well as to hope that the rest of the sport throws a party for them.This article appeared in the January 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

This modern oriental concrete, glass and wood luxurious villa was built to an unconventional, cultured active lady on her mid 70s and her family, to serve as a retreat and a gathering point for all of them. It is located in an exclusive gated community on the outskirts of Goiânia, full of valleys and rich native vegetation.Save this picture!© Marcus CamargoSave this picture!Planta – LayoutSave this picture!© Marcus CamargoThe main concerns of the architect were, in addition to accessibility, the creation of a concept of large voids to facilitate freedom of movement and allow all environments to be fluid, integrated into the natural external vegetation. With a steep slope, the terrain was divided into three thirds. The third on the middle was used to the house, located at a height of 4m from the zero point of the street, to privilege the view of the valley. The front third was allocated for the main access, and filled by a large concrete ramp in a “zigzag” format. The back third was reserved to the vegetation. The house has organic and smooth lines, with a striking feature as a concave roof that rests on six vaults interconnected by a massive concrete slab of variable thickness. The roof’s curves were built thinking of a bird’s flight. In the arches gallery, where the living room, kitchen and balcony are located, the ceiling height is double and the lighting lit from the floor draws attention by creating a bath of light on the slab, with shadows and playful scenes resulting.Save this picture!© Marcus CamargoSave this picture!Front viewSave this picture!© Marcus CamargoSave this picture!© Marcus CamargoThe intimate sector is in the lower block, and each room has its own private bathroom and winter garden. The service and leisure sectors are connected at the back of the house, where a 2.5m high and 25m long natural stone wall is located, a surprise not shown in the foundation project. This stone wall was treated as a sculptural element, not to mention the water that mines from it, creating a fresh, unique and surprising atmosphere! Moreover, a white tile panel resembling a stunning blue and golden flock of birds was designed by the artist Iêda Jardim, and further enhanced the design of the leisure sector.Save this picture!© Marcus CamargoSave this picture!Section AA and BBSave this picture!© Marcus CamargoProject gallerySee allShow lessRe-think Dupont Circle Design CompetitionBuilt Projects & MasterplansOpen Call: Marissa Villas (Town Houses) in Dammam CityBuilt Projects & Masterplans Share Area: 370 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Manufacturers: AutoDesk, ALDEIA ACABAMENTOS, BUENO PROJETOS ESTRUTURAIS, CRJ ESQUADRIAS EM ALUMÍNIO, DIRETRIZ CONSTRUTORA, EMYFER INTERIORES, ENCOESMA, IEDA JARDIM ARTISTA PLÁSTICA, INTERPAM+LUZ, MARMORARTE MÁRMORES E GRANITOS, Munó Acabamentos, VALENE METAIS E SERVIÇOS CopyHouses, House Interiors•Residencial Aldeia do Vale, Brazil 2020 Joy House / Studio Rodrigo FerreiraSave this projectSaveJoy House / Studio Rodrigo Ferreira Joy House / Studio Rodrigo Ferreira “COPY” Projects Lead Architect: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/946308/joy-house-studio-rodrigo-ferreira Clipboard CopyAbout this officeStudio Rodrigo FerreiraOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsResidencial Aldeia do ValeBrazilPublished on August 27, 2020Cite: “Joy House / Studio Rodrigo Ferreira” [Casa Joy / Studio Rodrigo Ferreira] 27 Aug 2020.

The design of this residential building is characterized by the presence of three patios, each one having different sizes and functions. The first one we encounter coming from outside separates the master part from the services one. Inside the house, the spaces are arranged around a central patio, which is covered by a large skylight. This space contributes to the internal climate well-being, allowing for the natural ventilation of the internal spaces during the summer months and providing solar gains in winter periods. A third patio is dedicated exclusively to the bathroom area.Save this picture!© Davide GalliSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Davide GalliThe articulation of the spaces and the arrangement of the openings, which may seem apparently simple, are the result of careful research. The goal was to define a multitude of visual relationships, between the interior spaces and the surroundings, framing different portions of the landscape from each room.Save this picture!© Davide GalliSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Davide GalliThe main idea that guided the design is to discover the interior spaces in a progressive way, by rotating around the central patio. The clear reference is to the typological scheme of the Roman Domus. The fronts of the house are characterized by the alternating presence of solid masonry parts, in the north-facing entrance, and the large corner window, in the south area.Save this picture!© Davide GalliThe roof slab, projected outside, towards the garden, clearly defines the external perimeter of the building. Thanks to the articulation of the wall parts, it was possible to build a series of different covered spaces, functioning as outdoor extensions of the house. The vertical elements of the structure are walls made in reinforced concrete, cast in place. The roof structure is made of a bidirectional reinforced concrete slab.Save this picture!© Davide GalliThe finishing materials are plaster and a reconstructed stone cladding, for the internal and external walls, while floors were finished using concrete. The heating and cooling of the interior spaces are provided by a radiant underfloor system combined with controlled mechanical ventilation. The photovoltaic panels on the roof power the heat pumps for the air conditioning of the building.Save this picture!© Davide GalliProject gallerySee allShow lessVilla Vernacular – Kerala Leisure is better when contextualStudent CompetitionsCPDI Africa Heritage Architecture Competition 2021Ideas Share Photographs: Davide Galli Marco Contini, Sara Chiari Save this picture!© Davide Galli+ 20Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957708/patio-house-studio-contini Clipboard Area: 693 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Projects Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957708/patio-house-studio-contini Clipboard 2020 CopyHouses, Sustainability•Monticelli Terme, Italy Patio House / Studio Contini “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeStudio ContiniOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityOn FacebookMonticelli TermeItalyPublished on March 08, 2021Cite: “Patio House / Studio Contini” 08 Mar 2021.

Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria Reporters Without Borders hails the release of two journalists who had been arrested by the Kano state police in connection with reports about Kano’s governor. They were both freed on the evening of 3 July.Tukur Mamu, the editor of the Kaduna-based Desert Herald weekly, was arrested on 2 July and was immediately taken to the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in the federal capital, Abuja. Alhaji Ado Mohamed of Kano-based Freedom Radio was arrested on 26 June.———————————–03.07.09 – Journalist arrested by Kano state police and taken to AbujaReporters Without Borders condemns the arrest of Tukur Mamu, the editor of the Desert Herald weekly, late yesterday afternoon in Kaduna by police from the northern state of Kano, who immediately took him to the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in the federal capital, Abuja.“We are extremely worried about Tukur Mamu and we demand his immediate release and an end to the threats being made against him,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Kano state authorities seem to be bent on persecuting him.”Several sources separately reported that Mamu’s arrest was ordered by Kano state governor Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, who nonetheless denied this at a news conference today.Tukur Mamu’s lawyer, Idriss Mamu, went to CID headquarters in Abuja today to enquire after his client, who had been in hiding for the past week after getting phone calls warning that Kano’s governor would “personally take care of you” if he continued to publish articles that “harm the government’s interests.”The warnings came after he ran a story about the fatal shooting of Sheikh Ja’afar Mahmoud Adam, a teacher in Koranic studies, in April 2007 in Dorayi. The governor could possibly be involved in this murder.Alhaji Ado Mohamed, the executive vice-chairman of Kano-based Freedom Radio was arrested by nine policemen on 26 June after writing about the same murder for the Saharareporters website. Idriss Mamu told Reporters Without Borders that Mohamed has just been hospitalised from the effects of a week in detention on his health.Reporters Without Borders cited the cases of Tukur Mamu and Alhaji Ado Mohamed in a 1 July letter to President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua about the threats to journalists in Nigeria.

He was carrying a gun himself. His colleagues said he had taken lots of photos in controversial cases and could have been killed because of his work.Reporter Paul Manaog of radio dwLL was serious wounded in shooting attack on 6 May in the southern town of Naga (in Camarines Sur province). The head of the Camarines Sur Capitol Press Association, Manaog was out walking with his wife when five gunmen fired at him. He was rushed to the Bicol Medical Center, where he is still in a serious condition. His wife said people he had criticised on the air could have been responsible for the shooting.Two grenades were thrown into the home of Fernando Batul of radio dyPR in the southern town of Puerto Princesa on 24 April but did not explode. The attackers left a note advising him to “hold his tongue.” Batul said he thought the attack could have been ordered by corrupt local officials he had criticised on his radio station.A journalist in the southern city of Tacloban, Nestor Abrematea, received a threatening phone call on 4 February, five days after giving a news conference at which he accused the city administration of hiring a shady contractor for a local construction project.
