I had written a two paragraph story for the Independent newspaper which provoked the retailing tycoon to scream down the phone at me the following day.“I cut out your article out and put it under my cat’s arse, which is where it firmly belongs,” Sir Philip, then just plain old Philip, bellowed at me, peppering his further comments with plenty of expletives. I watched and reported with interest as Amber Day failed and Sir Philip retreated from the public company arena and then watched again with admiration as the retailing tycoon built up an incredible empire, including Bhs and Top Shop.As the years went by Sir Philip joined the top ranks of British business. He tried and failed to take over Marks & Spencer but in doing so he instructed the country’s best advisers, including the top financial relations firm Finsbury and bankers Merrill Lynch. Then, under the Labour administration, this swashbuckling entrepreneur with a no-nonsense approach to management, was knighted.That he should have been appointed by the government to look at making cuts in public expenditure does not come as a total surprise. Sir Philip’s talents in running his retail empire will no doubt bring some benefits to some areas of government procurement and there will be jobs that he will no doubt be able to dispense with.What does surprise is Sir Philip’s naive belief that in accepting the job he would not be subjected to questions about his family’s tax arrangements. One might have every sympathy for Sir Philip and others like him, such as Terra Firma’s Guy Hands, who either reside overseas or have family overseas for tax reasons. Such businessmen and countless hedge fund managers and successful City figures are fed up with what they consider to be a punitive tax system.But it can not have escaped Sir Philip, or the government’s advisers, that in Vince Cable, the coalition has a business secretary who believes in making those who can afford it pay more. As Cable told us over the weekend: “I remain of the general view that British businesspeople should pay their taxes in Britain.”Sir Philip would no doubt reply that he does pay UK tax, but his wife, who has received a large dividend in the past, lives in Monaco and doesn’t.In asking Sir Philip about his tax affairs in the context of Cable’s stated position, CityA.M. upset the entrepreneur who has broken off relations. We are not the first newspaper to reach this state of affairs with him and clearly won’t be the last.But it is a shame the government’s latest appointee feels this way. In private Sir Philip has interesting thoughts on the kind of tax conditions that might allow his family and others to return to the UK, and he could no doubt enrich the debate.Increasing tax revenue would bring the budget deficit down just as much as cutting expenditure, and if that means reducing the rates of capital gains tax or income tax bands then that discussion needs to take place. Maybe Sir Philip will be calm enough to discuss such issues when he meets Cable on the business secretary’s return from holiday. [email protected] Allister Heath is away.

RBS 6 Nations: Wales analysis

first_imgThe Welsh back row didn’t really look Welsh against England – it looked Kiwi. Toby Faletau, Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric raised the standard of Welsh back-row play to another level. It was a lesson in selecting modern lightweight forwards with an emphasis on speed as well as technical ability. Last week’s big question was Warburton ‘or’ Tipuric – as it happens the answer may be Warburton ‘and’ Tipuric. They complemented each other perfectly. Having two sevens on the field meant that even when one was on the floor, the other was often on his feet.  The benefits of always having one of your fastest, most skilful, forwards on their feet at all times was demonstrated in Alex Cuthbert’s second try. Warburton’s explosive pace and power started it and Tipuric’s majestic skill-set did the rest – a Test centre would have been proud to run his line. The Warburton v Tipuric issue isn’t one that Wales have to worry about – the rest of the world’s Test-playing nations maybe should.Running man: Mike Phillips breaksBig bang theoryIn truth the Welsh back-line had been quiet in the opening four games. Kicking-based game plans had dictated they perform a more defensive role and use their size to make tackles. Against England, their size was used to break tackles. Between them the Welsh back-line beat 12 defenders – the entire English squad of 23 beat only nine. Cuthbert, George North, Jamie Roberts and Mike Phillips, in particular, wreaked havoc – double tackling a necessity not an option with them. The size of the Welsh backs was particularly evident when Wales executed energy-sapping ten-phase sets in England’s 22m area. Unlike other teams in the Six Nations the Welsh backs offer little relief when the ball is passed out wide. But for all of the physicality of North, Roberts and Phillips, it was Cuthbert’s surgical finishing that stole the show – and rightly so. Tackle bounces for show. Tries for dough.Coaching congratulations Many have been quick to blame the Welsh coaching set-up in recent months. Rob Howley’s right to coach the Welsh team and his selections have been questioned, whilst Shaun Edwards’s reliance on the blitz was criticised when Wales’ defensive performance slipped during the first half against Ireland. However, if the criticism must be heavy, then so must be the praise. Howley and Edwards et al have done a tremendous job during the last few weeks. Having shipped three tries in 42 minutes against Ireland, Wales haven’t conceded another during 358 minutes of rugby. Wales’ scrummage has dismantled both the Italian and English packs – both of whom take pride in their set-piece. They have beaten Scotland, Italy and France away from home and destroyed a much fancied England team. But most importantly the Welsh coaching staff have reinstalled a sense of pride and optimism in Welsh rugby – something that had been noticeable absent prior to the Six Nations.  The regional game may be in tatters, the player drain continues and the financial situation in Wales remains a concern – yet Wales are champions of the northern hemisphere once again. Rob Howley, Shaun Edwards and Robin McBryde  – take a bow.Follow Paul Williams on Twitter @thepaulwilliams LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS NOT FOR FEATURED At the double: Wales wing Alex Cuthbert breaks for the line after being set up for his second try by Justin TipuricBy Paul WilliamsSimply the bestWales have played some good rugby during the modern era, the performances of the Grand Slam years being the most obvious, but Saturday’s display arguably ranks as the best. There were no ‘Hollywood’ offloads, lucky bounces or fortuitous interceptions. Wales dominated England for 80 minutes, in every aspect of the game, and every single Welsh player outshone their opposite number. Wales secured 63% possession and 65% territory. Wales were unstoppable at the scrum and had a tackle completion of 92%. They denied the opposition a try for the fourth game in succession and conceded just seven penalties in the process. Feed me ‘til I want no more rang out around the stadium on Saturday and this time it had a special significance – the Welsh fans had their appetite for quality rugby sated and it tasted superb.Prop stars: Gethin Jenkins and Adam JonesFerocious front rowFront-row forwards rarely get the credit they deserve. Particularly in Wales, where more delicate skill-sets are often lauded. That isn’t the case after Saturday’s game. The Welsh front row were tremendous. Adam Jones, Richard Hibbard, Gethin Jenkins, Paul James and Ken Owens tortured the English front three – at times it contravened the Geneva Convention. Stuart Lancaster was even forced to hook Joe Marler off after just 44 minutes. But whilst the Welsh front row’s scrummaging was thoroughly old school, their performances around the field were very new school. Hibbard’s carrying and tackling was destructive and both Jenkins and Owens had very sticky fingers at the breakdown. Wales v England had been billed as the final audition for the Lions tour. If true, some of Wales’ front row are guaranteed a callback.Sevens’ heavenlast_img read more

England: Five things we learned v Italy

first_imgRaft of replacements warrantedBeing bold: Stuart Lancaster made big decisions earlySubstitutions once more earned disapproval as Luther Burrell and Dylan Hartley were replaced on 53 minutes just as the visitors hit a canter. Undoubtedly, the Northampton Saints pair were crucial cogs in some of England’s best play and their absence initially drained momentum.  However, the method was clear. At 31-6 ahead, around 30 points were still required. Manu Tuilagi and Tom Youngs are two of the most destructive runners in the country and a relatively early introduction was designed to give them time to settle before causing havoc.The next batch of changes – Tom Johnson for Tom Wood and Lee Dickson for Danny Care – came at 66 minutes and 38-6. Sixty seconds later, England had another try with the two new arrivals thriving in the loose. Seeing Leonardo Sarto go over for Italy and effectively end the mission to cancel out Ireland’s advantage, Lancaster took the cue to throw on everybody else. Again, there was nothing disruptive about that decision. His starters were tiring. Dave Attwood charged around like a madman again to book his spot on the June tour and George Ford gave us a glimpse of what could be in store…Farrell and Ford – an axis from the past for the future?England Under 20’s Junior World Championship campaign in 2011 ended in heartbreak. A Baby Blacks outfit including Brodie Retallick, Steven Luatua, Charles Piutau and Beauden Barrett sneaked past them in the final. However, a midfield partnership between George Ford and Owen Farrell shone throughout the competition. The latter is now a central figure in the senior squad. In the past two months, his displays against France, Wales and now Italy have been fantastic. This weekend, eight successful goal-kicks accompanied a try, two assists and trademark tenacity in defence.Twelvetrees may have enjoyed a good Six Nations, but Farrell’s attributes and spikiness suit inside centre nicely – his Test debut was there two years ago, remember? On Ford’s introduction at the Stadio Olimpico, the Bath tyro looked comfortable and a dart to set up Chris Robshaw showed class. The former next-door neighbours’ understanding could well offer England another dimension.Bounding back into contention: Manu TuilagiBurrell’s excellence means Tuilagi might have to shift out wide ROME, ITALY – MARCH 15: Manu Tuilagi of England looks on during the RBS Six Nations match between Italy and England at the Stadio Olimpico on March 15, 2014 in Rome, Italy. (Photo by David Rogers – RFU/The RFU Collection via Getty Images) Celebrating, but not for too long: Chris Robshaw and co salute England’s travelling fans after demolishing ItalyBy Charlie MorganSo that’s that. England’s Six Nations ended in a balmy, frantic Rome afternoon. There is no further silverware to complement their Triple Crown, but over the course of a 52-11 win we learned plenty more about Stuart Lancaster’s young side. This tournament has had something of a coming-of-age feel to it.PerspectiveIf you believe certain critics, failure to win by 50 was a disaster for England. Realistically – although ‘runners-up are the first losers’ talk may look tough – adopting such a macho mind-set would be to disregard a shed-load of positives. Lancaster’s team is no worse for missing out on the title. Ireland conquering Paris so brilliantly does not change a thing. It certainly shouldn’t detract from a comprehensive result at the Stadio Olimpico. A hostile crowd was nullified and the three previous trips to Italy – yielding a combined winning margin of just 13 points – now seem like ancient history.Unloading: Owen Farrell played well against ItalyAccusing English press of sensationalism is easy (and often justified). But here are some hard facts. The Azzuri have not shipped that many at home for nine years – since being beaten 56-8 by France back in 2005. Italy were missing two influential figures in Alessandro Zanni and Martin Castrogiovanni and got battered. It could have been a bigger landslide. Nit-picking is a luxury England fans have not been afforded for years. It should be embraced, but not at the expense of allowing praise when it’s due.A few jitters, but problem-solving and authorityLancaster is breaking stereotypes and it was definitely unfamiliar for England to fling the ball wide without first earning go-forward up front.  One needless miss-pass from Billy Twelvetrees to Jonny May summed up the early inaccuracy. Italy’s defence was allowed to drift and snuffed out a straightforward scoring chance.Thankfully, key decision-makers – Danny Care and Owen Farrell particularly – identified that punchy phase-play was the way to go against Italy’s lively but ragged line-speed. Even as it became fractured later, it was simple. Jack Nowell’s try was a fine demonstration of draw-and-pass for juniors to digest.Once they had calmed down, England’s confidence took hold. Handling errors cropped up, but a competition tally of 64 off-loads – just under 13 per game – and 41 clean breaks is clear evidence more reliance on skill and incision overall. They’ll need similar in New Zealand. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The call to pull Burrell from the field was not without thought – see above. That said, he had every right to look disgruntled. In fact, that attitude was great to see. Clearly, every second in a white shirt is precious to these players with such stiff competition around. Burrell has comfortably done enough to remain in Lancaster’s thoughts for a long time. This was his best outing – the burst and pass for Mike Brown’s opening try was sublime and more involvements made for more problems in the opposition ranks.Even so, Tuilagi reinforced his standing as a true game-breaker. A typically barnstorming score brought his record to 11 in 23 Tests – a record that cannot be ignored and means he must be accommodated somehow. Having played all of his junior rugby at Leicester Tigers Academy on the flank, wing is a viable option. It could blend well with the all-court linking of Jack Nowell and Mike Brown’s scything from deep, too. Anyway, there’s another healthy headache for Lancaster. How nice.last_img read more

Don, it seems that a person can’t turn on the tv, computer, or read a newspaper without learning about someone, somewhere, getting shot and either getting wounded, or their life taken too soon. I don’t have any answers either, and don’t know why this is happening way to often, or what can be done about it. Like you state, they can ban guns all they want, but acts of evil will still be committed. I think we both are realistic, when we confess that we don’t have all the answers. This mass shooting will be replayed over and over, again and again, because so many died and were wounded, but just look around here daily in Central Florida, and it is everyday that someone is a victim. Many of those daily victims don’t get a front page headline, or proper mourning for their lives they have lived upon this earth. I guess that is the way of the world. I find it encouraging though, that the hurricane has helped bring people together more so than normal. So there is always hope. I hope you will still do a story on the cat lady. I would like to hear about who she is, and all the details. I hope you are feeling better. Thanks, Don….Mama Mia October 8, 2017 at 5:49 pm InspirationBy: Don Lindsey.I had planned to make today’s column about an area organization that rescues cats and the lady who started the business. However, the events in Las Vegas last Sunday have me changing my direction. With 58 dead and hundreds more injured, our nation has once again found itself in a state of mourning, and I for one am wondering how many more need to lose their lives before we see that we’re the only ones who can stop these senseless acts of violence.No, I’m not talking about gun control.  I’ve never been a “gun person,” but I don’t believe that firearms are the issue.  Cain killed Abel with a rock, so in my opinion, we can ban all guns but if people want to carry out acts of evil, they will.  For me, guns are not the weapons of concern.  Hatred, division, and a self-absorbed way of looking at the world are our most significant issues, and unless we start being honest with each other and ourselves, they will be our downfall.We’re so divided over political, and personal differences that we keep missing our opportunity to live up to the potential that God had in mind when he created us.  This mindset has been the background of many of my columns, but in all honesty, I’m starting to see that as a society, we seem too driven by our own needs to grasp the damage we’re creating.And I can confess that I have the same issues.  I’ve been so caught up in myself that I genuinely am not sure who I am anymore.  When I experience those self-centered moments, it’s hard to see anything else.  I believe we’re all wired that way in some regard, but the answer to getting out of that mindset is simple.Just look around you.When we take a couple of minutes to force ourselves to look outside of our own lives, we see the people around us that we love.  For me looking at my kids this week has brought fear of the future they are being raised to live in, but it’s also given me a glimmer of hope that the next generation will see the power in unity and in that discovery will reduce, if not end the suffering we inflict on ourselves.   Another thing that has given me hope is the stories coming out of the Las Vegas massacre of people rallying around one another to get through the shooting.  The many acts of heroism that have been reported show the resolve that human beings have when under direst.  Why is that important?  For me, it’s because an example of how much we can do when we care about helping those around us.  Instead of being paralyzed by the fear of losing their own life, so many abandoned that fear and put helping those in need at the top of their priority list.  Now if we could just find a way to use that same situational awareness to help all the time instead of only when there is a tragedy, I believe that we could prevent the type of killings that we see unfold in our country.I don’t claim to have all of the answers.  I do not even have my own life figured out, but what I do know is that unless we find a way to come together quickly, instead of continually fighting amongst ourselves, then we will continue to be a nation in mourning.

Conditioned by an environmentally protected area on the backyard, the RG house diverges into two distinct priority facts, one environmental and another human: the uneven topography, characteristic of the city, and the contemplative value that the preserved vegetation offers to the residents on the most private limit of the lot.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosThe project proposes an alternative that reconciles these two aspects. From the street, the house extends from the upper level to the backyard, in a way that floats on the topography while suits it, creating a shaded area on the ground and linking the main access to the street. In this conformation, the project assumes a elevated ground floor for intimate purposes – whose elevation allows privacy and the best visuals – and an underground level for social and service purposes. Both pavements can be accessed by the street from the axis of circulation arranged in the main facade, which links the daily routine to the urban space.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosSave this picture!Longitudinal sectionSave this picture!© Eduardo MacariosIn addition, just three concrete pillars and slender prestressed slabs guarantee contemporary features for the building, by pure aesthetics and free plan, and an elegant appropriation of this sample of the city’s topography, since the apparent lightness of the building and character contemplative provided by the transparency of the underground level ensure the vitality of this residence that longs to respect the possibilities of the residents and the existing environment.Save this picture!© Eduardo MacariosProject gallerySee allShow lessFactory Restaurant / 4 Lados.AUSelected ProjectsExplore Brazil’s Architecture Studios Through the Lens of Marc GoodwinArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917822/rg-house-michel-macedo-arquitetos Clipboard Houses Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917822/rg-house-michel-macedo-arquitetos Clipboard Michel Macedo CopyHouses•Pato Branco, Brazil “COPY” Lead Architects: center_img Photographs:  Eduardo Macarios 2016 RG House / Michel Macedo ArquitetosSave this projectSaveRG House / Michel Macedo Arquitetos Projects Year:  Area:  191 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Brazil Save this picture!© Eduardo Macarios+ 25Curated by Matheus Pereira Share CopyAbout this officeMichel Macedo ArquitetosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPato BrancoBrazilPublished on May 27, 2019Cite: “RG House / Michel Macedo Arquitetos” [Casa RG / Michel Macedo Arquitetos] 27 May 2019.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowsRodecaAluminium WindowsText description provided by the architects. We were approached to reconstruct a fascinating building. We found a house that suffered significant damage, a former homestead rebuilt under the communist regime into a granary. The house was looted and reorganised for another purpose. During the first site visit, we analysed its joints, niches, and protrusions, discovering the original forms. Despite its previous inconsiderate rebuilding, the house has not lost any of its grandeur. On the contrary, the way it is situated, the way it rises to the sky, and the way its raw matter resists time, have proven to be of the highest quality.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!North and south elevationsSave this picture!© BoysPlayNiceIt was ruin to the bone. All that was left of the original house was a brick envelope with a roof. Together with the building owners, we asked ourselves whether the house had a place to return to. Any attempt at a traditional repair would mean losing the original character of the ruin. Relatively soon, therefore, we rejected a speculative reconstruction of the original state, as well as any other imitations. We proposed to fix the current state of the romantic ruins and enter the house anew. House to house, house inside a ruin.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceWe proposed to tear down the inner parts of the building and return its original layout with two floors instead of three, as well as the original scale. Related to this is a return to the original division of the facade. Without sentiment and depending on the needs of the layout, we opened other large openings where needed. We have built a new, insulated house into the existing staged ruin, a one that can meet all current energy standards. We reused the structurally sound wooden beams as elements of ceilings and truss replacements. Most of the material remained in place, just rearranged. Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe house combines low and high. We have inserted a new current layer, differing in its purpose from all the previous ones. A ventilated gap is maintained between the new and the original structure, and the structures do not touch. The new structure is sometimes slightly shifted from the old one. The windows do not fit precisely the openings in the old wall, and it some places, the old wall is also present in the interior. There is a visual intertwining of the two worlds. The new building penetrates through openings in the old wall, and on the contrary, the old wall enters through new windows.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe project is our manifesto of how it is possible to treat old houses. It is not necessary to lose the authenticity of old age. It is not necessary to demolish, neither to reconstruct dogmatically. At the same time, even in such a case, it is possible to build economically using modern materials and achieve the required parameters. Just as the house has respected its history since its inception, the garden has been designed to become a natural part of the landscape. There are no physical boundaries. The boundary is indicated only by fragments of low walls and a corten gate, and the garden is connected to its surroundings. The orchards, meadow lawns, and hawthorns are only “borrowed” from the immediate vicinity. The garden becomes the binding element between the house, its views, and the surrounding landscape. Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceGuests of the house meet in a generous double-height living space with a tiled stove and a kitchen. It also offers the conveniences of modern living. Stairs in a generous hall lead guests to individual rooms with bathrooms. There, they can enjoy the tranquillity of the space and look out into the open landscape through the massive old walls that frame the views; or surrender to the silence that reigns here. The round table in the hall communicates with a massive oak table outside, where you can move when the weather allows and be even closer to the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessHow to Make a Facade with Recycled Materials: 21 Notable ExamplesArticlesAmé 247 Building / Lavalle + Peniche ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Houses “COPY” ArchDailylast_img read more
