Wales come from behind to beat hosts England at Twickenham

first_imgSunday Sep 27, 2015 Wales come from behind to beat hosts England at Twickenham Wales turned around a 10-point deficit and had to contend with more serious injuries but managed to stay in the contest at Twickenham and come away with a hugely valuable 28-25 victory that shocked England players and fans alike. Wales showed huge character, but while England had a chance for at least a draw in the final minutes, they weren’t able to take the opportunity and home fans were left shellshocked.Chris Robshaw’s decision to go for the lineout rather than attempt a kick at goal could come back to haunt them in a Pool that is so closely contested.Earlier England were ahead and in control with Welsh players dropping like flies, but they too were required to make a few changes after various knocks disrupted their play and gave Wales a sniff at a comeback.Wales took it well, with Dan Biggar putting in a sensational kicking performance and the backs out wide setting up a very well taken try for scrumhalf Gareth Davies.Both Owen Farrell and Biggar were outstanding with the boot on the night, with the England number ten kicking 5 penalties, a conversion and a dropgoal, while Biggar kicked 7 penalties and converted the crucial second half try.England coach Stuart Lancaster said he was ‘gutted’, while Wales coach Warren Gatland, usually quite reserved, could be seen punching the air in celebration at the final whistle.“I thought England would have gone for goal and got the draw,” Gatland said. “Get it right and you are a hero. Get it wrong and you are zero.”England skipper Chris Robshaw explained that it was his decision at the end.“The call came down to myself. I spoke to the kickers and we decided it was a tough kick and that we wanted to go for the win. A couple of lineouts before we had gained ascendancy but unfortunately it did not come off.”View highlights below and reaction from the coaches, skippers and Dan Biggar on page twoWales coach Warren GatlandEngland Coach Stuart LancasterSam WarburtonChris RobshawDan BiggarADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby , Rugby World Cup , Wales Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

As night falls, a building appears to be lightly perched on a heavy base, floating and glowing in the trees.Save this picture!ConceptSave this picture!DiagramIn rural West Tisbury, MA, a graphic novelist needs a place to park and a place to work. The place to park is a black box with a continuous strip of polycarbonate to let in light and expose the framing “branches” that support the upper floor. What sits on top is a cedar shingled, light filled studio in the trees, with tall walls with large windows on the East that frame views of the surrounding foliage and low walls with small windows on the West to gain privacy from the adjacent main house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Nick WaldmanThe local building restrictions on “detached bedrooms” only allow partitions for a bathroom. Thus, the bathroom “core”, placed in the center of the room, plays the role of dividing the open living layout into two distinct zones of living/working and sleeping, allowing occupants to circulate around both sides. While not on a wall with windows, light from a large operable skylight and high vaulted ceilings still give the bathroom a very open feel. A private narrow deck in the back, provides a place to pause and reflect with the nature that the studio sits in.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Apple 2 Campus Headed Toward CompletionArchitecture News4 Ways You Can Dress Like an ArchitectArticles Share United States Tree House / Nick Waldman Studio CopyAbout this officeNick Waldman StudioOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWest TisburyUnited StatesPublished on August 08, 2016Cite: “Tree House / Nick Waldman Studio” 08 Aug 2016.

No hay victorias fáciles

first_imgEl líder marxista y liberador africano de Guinea-Bissau, Amílcar Cabral, dijo una vez: “No digas mentiras. … No reclames victorias fáciles”.Los activistas revolucionarios de hoy que miran a América Latina y el Caribe deben tener en cuenta esa frase al revisar el mes de octubre de 2019. Las luchas populares masivas retrasaron los regímenes de derecha. Los avances electorales se convirtieron en lo que son al menos victorias parciales o temporales para la clase trabajadora y los pobres del hemisferio. Algunas luchas masivas enormes están llenas de potencial. Aún así, todas estas son solo las batallas iniciales en un largo período de lucha.El panorama general es el siguiente: el sistema capitalista/imperialista domina el mundo. Este sistema ha estado en crisis, en recesión, al menos desde 2008. La recesión ha reducido la necesidad de materias primas, lo que reduce los precios de las exportaciones de muchos países latinoamericanos.Esto a su vez reduce la capacidad de estos países de pagar intereses sobre sus préstamos de bancos imperialistas que necesitan para mantener funcionales los programas sociales.Las entidades financieras imperialistas como el Fondo Monetario Internacional no quieren formar parte de los programas sociales. Exigen en cambio que los gobiernos impongan austeridad, privatizaciones, medidas antipopulares. Donde los gobiernos de centroizquierda resisten o retrasan la represión de las masas, los imperialistas y los oligarcas locales los han depuesto, usando elecciones, tribunales e incluso golpes de estado: en Paraguay, Honduras, más recientemente en Ecuador y Brasil y mediante elecciones en Chile y Argentina. Y siguen intentando derrocar a los gobiernos de Nicaragua y Venezuela.En las últimas semanas, las masas trabajadoras han dicho: “¡No más!”. En Haití, un líder histórico en la lucha por la emancipación en este hemisferio, el pueblo exige la renuncia del gobierno. En Ecuador, una huelga general nacional obligó a un presidente, que traicionó a su propio partido junto con el pueblo, a retirarse de un decreto antipopular. En Chile, manifestaciones masivas desafiaron el terror policial y del ejército y obligaron al presidente a retirarse. Todas estas luchas siguen vivas e indecisas. (Están cubiertos en otros artículos en este número de Workers World).En Bolivia, el popular presidente Evo Morales fue reelegido el 20 de octubre, obteniendo solo el 10 por ciento de margen necesario para ganar la primera ronda del concurso. Morales enfrenta un posible golpe de estado en los próximos días por parte de los oligarcas del país y está movilizando a las masas que lo apoyan para detener el golpe. Al igual que con el presidente Nicolás Maduro en Venezuela, el imperialismo estadounidense ve a Morales como un enemigo y tratará de socavar a su gobierno.Las elecciones del 27 de octubre en Argentina depusieron al actual enemigo neoliberal del pueblo, Mauricio Macri, en la primera vuelta, en un 48 por ciento a 40 por ciento. Esto pone de nuevo en el poder a las fuerzas políticas que continúan con el gobierno de centroizquierda que estaba antes de la victoria de Macri en 2015, incluida Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, esta vez como vicepresidenta.La reacción de muchos en la izquierda comunista argentina ha sido más o menos así: “Genial, celebremos el domingo por la noche y comencemos a movilizar a las masas el lunes por la mañana para luchar contra el FMI y los capitalistas argentinos”. El torbellino de la lucha de masas de Chile es contagioso. Hay una razón para la reticencia de los comunistas argentinos a “reclamar una victoria fácil”. Los pueblos de América Latina y el Caribe están hartos del neoliberalismo sin trabas y de las escandalosas desigualdades que genera. El problema es que, en el marco del capitalismo, nadie puede resolver los problemas impuestos a estos países por el imperialismo mundial.Debemos defender los derechos de los pueblos de este hemisferio para seleccionar sus propios gobiernos y ayudarlos en la medida de lo posible para que se liberen de las botas imperialistas que los ahorcan.También debemos darnos cuenta de que mientras los capitalistas controlen los bancos, los medios de comunicación y, lo más importante, los aparatos estatales represivos en estos países, la crisis impuesta por el imperialismo mundial es ineludible. Ni los capitalistas locales, ni sus patrocinadores en Washington, Bruselas y Tokio, simplemente entregarán el poder. Este es solo el comienzo de una nueva fase en una larga guerra de clases.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ally Home, the direct-to-consumer mortgage arm of Ally Finance, conducted a survey of more than 2,000 people in order to dive deeper into what they are looking for in both a home and a neighborhood. Of those surveyed, nearly nine out of 10 people (88 percent) said the “vibe” of an area was important in choosing where to live, with half of those (49 percent) respondents categorizing it as “very important.”Moreover, nearly three quarters (73 percent) of those surveyed said they would consider settling for a smaller house than they wanted and/or pay a little more if the surrounding neighborhood appealed to them. Eighty percent of those surveyed said their ideal local needed to match their personality, and 82 percent said they would consider moving if the neighborhood vibe didn’t mesh with what they wanted.But what type of area matches those desired ideals? Thirty-six percent of those surveyed said they wanted a “quiet, quaint” area with “curb appeal, lots of friendly people, and less of a concern to lock the doors.” Twenty-eight percent of respondents were looking for more of a “modern millennial” kind of locale—one “where they can walk to everything, with reasonably priced bars, restaurants, and coffee shops nearby.”Outdoor space was also cited as an important concern for potential homebuyers. A quarter of those surveyed said they wanted a neighborhood close to “organic farms, farmers’ markets, and hiking trails,” whereas 21 percent said they were seeking a “family centric” location, where “families live in close proximity to one another and are close to schools and playgrounds.Click below to watch Ally’s “man on the street” interviews with people discussing what they’re looking for in an ideal neighborhood.Video Playerhttp://dsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/ally_NeighborhoodVibes_1280x720_PRNewswire.mp400:0000:0002:18Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
