Cuthbert happy to mix with “best in the world”

first_img“Watching the game against Glasgow, they [Toulon] had won it in the first 30 minutes and it is about us matching them physically for that half hour on Saturday and giving ourselves a chance. For me I want to be playing the likes of [Bryan] Habana, who may be the best player in the world in my position, and I want people to see me against that and say ‘fair play.’”Best in the world?: Habana during the Rugby ChampionshipCuthbert feels conflicted with his own form being impressive, which is something he puts down to his belief in himself and his drive to consistently perform in every game regardless of the opposition, but he wants to play well in a winning side. What he hasn’t done, he insists, is have a quiet word with “the best full-back and best seven in the world” to try and convince them to stay in the Welsh capital, despite the Blues’ current malaise…He does also hint at a strong belief within the Welsh national team, where players can come together and perform, regardless of the form of the regions.He explains: “I think a lot comes down to understanding. In particular the likes of Warren [Gatland] and Robin [McBryde] make sure everyone is always on the same page. We have the confidence from Grand Slams and World Cup semi finals. Going forward, you always want to keep your form for the autumn and we are so close to the squad being picked. If I keep scoring and I am picked I will take confidence into that.” Bryan Habana of South Africa intercepts the ball as Adam Ashley-Cooper of Australia looks on during the 2013 Rugby Championship match between South Africa and Australia at the Newlands Stadium on September 28, 2013 in Cape Town, South Africa. AFP PHOTO / LUIGI BENNETT (Photo credit should read Luigi Bennett/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Red-y to rumble: Alex Cuthbert and co model the brand new UnderArmour Wales’ kit before the autumn TestsBy Alan DymockHAVING ONLY just recovered from the harsh lessons of the last weekend, after being overwhelmed by a rampant Exeter Chiefs side in round one of the Heineken Cup, Alex Cuthbert took some time out to talk up Cardiff Blues’ chances this weekend.Talking at the official launch of Wales’ new kit, the winger explained that he was actually looking forward to testing himself against and attacking “the best in the world” at the Arms Park on Saturday.Pink flash: Alex Cuthbert on Sunday“I’m almost back to normal after two days of recovering,” Cuthbert told Rugby World, “but it’s frustrating, the way we played in that first half last week.“Obviously pitches are dry at the moment and I think a lot of clubs in the Heineken in particular are looking to attack more. Teams used to pride themselves on defence and with Wales we feel our defence has helped us to be Six Nations champions, but lots of teams are now looking to be attacking threats and some are pushing for maybe two tries in quick succession after a score, rather than one. Look at Cardiff Blues on Sunday – we were trying to score from everywhere.”Some would argue that it was a case of too little, too late in Exeter but such is Cuthbert’s confidence he feels that he can rise to the next challenge. Namely that of a superstar Toulon team who tore through Glasgow Warriors minutes after Blues and Chiefs stopped running.“I’m relishing playing the best team in the world,” Cuthbert says of Toulon with a smile. “We want to show something positive. I know we have the quality so it is strange to see us lose like that; we have 14 or 15 internationals and five British and Irish Lions but we are not getting results. With the Wales squad for the autumn selected on Tuesday, it is hard to see the free-scoring and, most importantly, happy Cuthbert miss out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY7WEGf3yrglast_img read more

Brian O’Driscoll and Jonny Wilkinson surprise some unsuspecting fans

first_imgThursday Jan 13, 2011 Brian O’Driscoll and Jonny Wilkinson surprise some unsuspecting fans Over the years fans have sporadically been treated to rugby tv ads. It doesnt happen too often, but when it does we’re usually curious to check them out. Today is the launch of an amusing new ad campaign that includes two rugby legends.For the first time ever, Brian ODriscoll and Jonny Wilkinson have come together in an ad campaign to help launch the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide. The two find themselves hiding in bathroom stalls, surprising unsuspecting rugby fans while hidden cameras roll.While hiding in stalls and jumping out at men isnt usually what these two do in their spare time, the reactions of some of the participants who were told they had to wash their hands before tasting pizza for a focus group is pretty amusing. “Ready to take the ProGlide Challenge??” is what the guys shout out as the victims all react differently to seeing these great players suddenly standing next to them.The ads will be be broadcast in the UK today for the first time, featuring on ITV, Sky Sports, ESPN, and C4 over the next few weeks. They’re only a few seconds long, but weve organised a behind the scenes build up that sets the tone and gets some of the reactions from not only the bemused men, but ODriscoll and Wilkinson themselves. One of the ads will then play after that. You can view more about the ads and the Gillette Fusion ProGlide, thats due to be released on the 25th January, on their Facebook page at Facebook.com/GilletteUKADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Project Brief The property had an existing house, which completely under-utilized the site’s fantastic characteristics. The brief called for a dynamic response to capitalise on the site, creating an environment where the young family could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle offered by the site. This outdoor area is protected from the prevailing winds, and enjoys views of the sea, and more immediate views of large boulders to the South. The clients were eager to utilise every possible area of the site, yet ensure that they maintained privacy in this dense part of Bantry Bay, where sites are fairly small and owners typically maximise their allowable building envelopes. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAThe Site The site tapers from the rear, being approximately 26m wide to the street boundary which is 17m wide and 16m below. This steep tapered shape complicated the design, and hampered the construction process. The budget restrictions implied that a component of the existing building needed to be retained, which also created consequential problems in design, documentation and execution. Due to variations in the Zoning Scheme – applicable when the original house was built in the 1950’s and the recently amended Zoning Scheme, portions of the existing dwelling were illegal. This, along with the imposition of the road widening strategy, applicable to Victoria Road (a scenic route), made for additional complications in the design and submission procedures for the house. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTADesign Layout The design was primarily driven by the need to create a family home, which accommodated the kitchen, living room and dining room in one single space. These areas enjoyed all day sunlight with simultaneously framed views of the sea. The secondary living area was to be a dramatic entertainment space, located on the level immediately below the family level, where the clients could entertain large groups of friends. The pool terrace allows for covered and uncovered areas to relax around the pool. The entertainment lounge accommodates a generous bar, and is close to the outdoor braai area. A dramatic gazebo structure is perched at the Western edge of the pool deck, which allows the owners to enjoy the last hours of the setting sun on the edge of the pool deck. Save this picture!Floor PlanThese 2 living levels are located centrally in the vertical arrangement of the house on the Fourth and Fifth floor. The Sixth floor above accommodates the main bedroom with 2 children’s en-suite bedrooms and a small children’s lounge. The guest room, a staff area and a private library are located on the second and third story below the entertainment level. The ground floor accommodates the entrance hall and a five car garage. A glass lift connects the building vertically, and an external service stair connects the levels externally. Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTADesign Aesthetics The house is strongly influenced by the Californian School of ‘Case Study’ houses. It also takes its cue from Miesien Planar Designs, demonstrated with the cantilever roof slab which is separated from the main off-shutter concrete roof soffit by a dramatic clerestory window. The slab is in turn supported by a marble clad wall plane, reminiscent of the stone walls of the Barcelona Pavilion. Save this picture!SectionVisually the building is enriched with the use of a number of interesting finishes and features. These include textured stone cladding to various walls internally and externally. This is contrasted with the roughness of the off-shutter concrete soffit to the living room, dining room and kitchen on the Fifth floor. The finishes are rich and varied to various other areas in the house, including timber cladding to various rooms, and richly colored mosaic finishes.Save this picture!Courtesy of SAOTAProject gallerySee allShow lessSteven Holl Architects’ Horizontal Skyscraper Wins American Architecture AwardArticlesMiami University Fall ‘11 Architecture and Interior Design Lecture SeriesArticles Sharelast_img read more

It will cover their charity’s administration costs ensuring that all the money raised by volunteers goes directly to the charity.Each volunteer must raise €4,000 to take part in the week-long build and pay 10% to sign up.Well-travelled and a long-time supporter of Goal, Mr Buckley said it was his repeat business trips to Haiti that prompted him to set up Haven. “I have never seen poverty like I have seen in Haiti. Entire families live in shacks that we would not dream of putting an animal in,” he said.Although modelled on the Niall Mellon Township Trust project, which builds homes in South Africa, Mr Buckley said has gone a step further and established local committees to select people to occupy the new homes once they are built.www. havenpartnership.com  26 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tycoon sets up charity with €1 million donationlast_img read more

SoCalGas Urges Public to Call 811 to Avoid Damaging Underground Utility Lines

(SoCalGas) reminds the public to dial 811 two working days prior to digging to identify the location of underground utility lines and to avoid striking them.“Whether installing a mailbox, putting in a fence or sprinkler system, planting trees, building a new patio or deck or launching an outdoor business remodeling project, we urge the public to dial 811 several days before digging to ensure the site is properly marked,” said Jimmie Cho, senior vice president of gas operations and systems integrity for SoCalGas. “Knowing where underground utility lines are buried prevents injuries, unintentional damage, inconvenient outages and costly repairs.”When contacting 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to the local one-call center that notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig. Utility representatives are then sent to the requested digging site at no charge to mark the approximate location of underground lines with flags, color-coded paint or stakes. If they do not find any underground utility lines in the area, they will mark “clear.” Once all lines are identified, customers should carefully use only hand-digging tools within two feet on each side of marked natural gas lines.More than 100 billion feet of utility lines lay buried underground in communities throughout the United States – which equates to more than one football field’s length of buried utilities for every man, woman and child in the country, according to Common Ground Alliance, an organization dedicated to protecting underground utility lines.These utility lines provide amenities such as cable TV, high-speed Internet, landline telephone, electricity, natural gas and water. The depth of utility lines can vary due to years of erosion, previous digging projects and uneven surfaces.By California state law, anyone working on a project that requires digging into the ground must dial 811 two days in advance. Here are steps to protect you and your community:• Regardless of the depth of the digging or familiarity with the property, always contact 811 before initiating a project that involves extensive shoveling.• If you have hired a contractor, make sure the contractor called 811. Don’t allow work to begin until you have confirmed utilities were notified and marked the area.• Make sure to dig around the marked lines, not on them.Even a slight gouge, scrape or dent to a pipeline or coating may cause a dangerous break or leak in the future. If a customer inadvertently causes minor damage to a natural gas line or an attached component, that customer should call SoCalGas immediately at 1-800-427-2200.

GDP Growth Rate Expands in Second Q3 Estimate as U.S. Awaits Fed Liftoff

The GDP grew at a solid rate of 3.9 percent in Q2 but the Fed still did not raise rates.In the advance estimate for Q3 released last month, GDP grew at a rate of 1.5 percent. The rate increase from the advance estimate to the second estimate was largely due to “positive contributions from personal consumption expenditures (PCE), nonresidential fixed investment, state and local government spending, residential fixed investment, and exports that were partly offset by a negative contribution from private inventory investment. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.”A survey of 58 Wall Street Journal economists conducted in November showed a predicted median GDP growth of 1.5 percent for the third quarter, with a low of 1.1 percent and a high of 2.1 percent. That same group predicted median growth of 2.7 percent, with a high of 4.5 percent and a low of 1.5 percent.Anticipated growth in the GDP rate combined with a solid jobs report for October that beat job creation expectations by 50 percent (271,000 has caused widespread prediction that the Fed will finally raise rates in December. Barring a less-than-stellar employment summary for November, which will be released on December 4, analysts expect the Fed will make the leap.“We really only have one more hurdle to go (the November employment summary), and unless something unforeseen occurs, I think it’s a pretty good bet that the Fed is going to raise rates in December,” said Curt Long, Chief Economist for the National Association of Federal Credit Unions.Despite the increase in the rate of GDP growth from the advance estimate to the second estimate in Q3, the news is not all good, according to the National Association of Home Builders’ Assistant VP for Forecasting and Analysis Robert Denk.“Despite the higher growth headline number, 2.1 percent, major sectors of the economy slowed from last quarter and the correction to inventory investment that we thought was behind us is now in front of us and will pull down the growth numbers next quarter,” Denk wrote on the NAHB’s Eye on Housing Blog. “Stepping back, there are positive notes to the report: PCE, while slower than last quarter, remains strong; fixed investment slowed but hasn’t collapsed; government spending is adding to rather than subtracting from growth. The recovery from the Great Recession continues and the weakness of this report isn’t a major setback, but the upside-down nature of these revisions confounds interpretation; it’s not what it appears, it’s curiouser and curiouser.”center_img Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Federal Reserve GDP U.S. Economy 2015-11-24 Brian Honea Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago GDP Growth Rate Expands in Second Q3 Estimate as U.S. Awaits Fed Liftoff Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
