I’ve been watching clips but I try to stay out of rucks!Who’s the biggest joker at Sale?Sam Tuitupou. And Ross Harrison.Any practical jokes you can share?Micky Mac (Mcilorum) at Wigan was always up to stuff.

My missus watches it.What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?I’m not that clever! Probably fishing. I once caught a huge pike.

So I don’t know its weight but it was over 20lb.What would represent success for you in union?To prove people wrong. When I signed for Sale I had a lot of, not hate mail but people being negative against me. Mainly rugby league fans.

It tries to be understood primarily as a complex spatial structure and as a cultural fusion building, as a labyrinth of light, as a new, fresh wind that brushes gently over this place. Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarThat greets, enriches and brings the new. That turns disadvantages into advantages. Atypical but nevertheless revitalizing and integrating.Here in Berlin Mitte, in Waisenstrasse opposite the old city walls , where a few isolated medieval structures are still to be found, was the 520 square meter plot . Its development potential and light situation proved to be a particular challenge, not only because of the complicated plot geometry but also the six -to seven- story tall buildings that border it.Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarAdditional challenges were given by building code requirements, the perceptions of the Landesdenkmalamt (landmark building commission) as well as the desire of the owner and investor for maximum utilization of space with high architectural and spatial quality .Save this picture!SectionHow can the density and individuality, security, and naturally grown fragmentation of the medieval structure with courtyards and alleys, as they once were, be transformed into a different , contemporary language ?At this place, where time left so many scars, shouldn’t there be a house that’s been developed not only to fill voids but also to leave voids?Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarHow can I, as a German architect with Persian roots, make a meaningful contribution?How can you find architecture that is on one hand connected to the place, on the other hand, divorced from it? Which is foreign, yet familiar? Which can make you experience the place, but also look beyond it? – Into the world and into the future of a cosmopolitan city.Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarThe result is an individually from the inside out developed building complex with a mountain village like structure whose parts individually stretch to the light, for air and into the space, yet withdraw into hidden privacy.The interaction of introversion and extroversion, looking in and looking out, interior and exterior spaces, light and shadow play, create their own complex cosmos.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe construction leaves interstitial space and places that offer retreat and relaxation to the over stimulated big city life, as well as shelter or a meeting room, if you like.The house lives with the light and changes due to the light at any given day time or season.Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarIt is constructed with light in mind and that is always noticeable.The white, fine-grained and seamlessly plastered walls (ETICS) abandon the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces and let the individual buildings seem basic, abstract and sculptural by the way of the sharp edges of the building corners (waterproof Sto boards as a cover).They reinforce the effect of light and provide an ideal reflective surface.Save this picture!Floor PlanPatios and terraces, pool and water surfaces change at any time of day or season specific areas of the house and thereby contribute significantly to the increase in living quality . This will not only allow joy and fun but also strengthen the awareness and the senses.Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarThe six-storey front building houses a parking garage in the basement, above five apartments two of which are organized as maisonettes . Two townhouses, five and three floors , designed as independent vertical units additionally accessed via a courtyard on the 1st floor. All apartments have been designed and customized individually. They differ fundamentally from each other yet form a unity .Save this picture!© Christian Dammert, Aviel AvdarOriginally started as a investors project, the home increasingly became a project of dedication by power of persuasion.

Burmese journalists continue to be arrested, foreign journalists still unwelcome

They also call for press visas to be issued to foreign journalists.“The international community, including the United Nations, has succeeded in persuading the military government to open the country to humanitarian aid,” the two organisations said. “It is now essential to get the junta to stop preventing civil society, including the press, from participating in the relief effort.”They added: “By preventing journalists from working, the junta is trying to make people forget its disastrous management of the crisis. It has partially succeeded, as international public opinion has lost interest in the fate of the hundreds of thousands of Burmese who were hit by the cyclone because of the lack of TV footage and news reports.”Myanmar Tribune editor Aung Kyaw San has been arrested and his magazine closed because of his humanitarian work in cyclone-hit areas. He was arrested on 15 June along with sixteen other people for burying the bodies of victims near Bogale. According to friends, this team of volunteers buried more than 400 bodies in accordance with Red Cross procedures.They were arrested while returning to Rangoon to pick up new sacks for burying victims. Five of them, including Aung Kyaw San, are still being held in Insein prison. Journalist Zaw Thet Htwe and a blogger known as Zarganar are also being held for helping Cyclone Nargis victims. Zarganar was arrested after giving an interview to a BBC reporter ( Ein Khine Oo, a 23-year-old journalist working for Ecovision Journal, was arrested on 10 June while covering a demonstration by cyclone victims outside the UNDP compound in Rangoon. She is still being held at the Tamwe police station pending trial. She was charged today under article 505 (b), which makes “comments that mislead the public” punishable by imprisonment.At least 10 journalists and a blogger are currently detained in Burma – three of them for providing assistance to cyclone victims.South Korean journalist Lee Yu Kyong was deported on 22 June after going to the headquarters of the National League for Democracy, the opposition party led by Aung San Suu Kyi. Lee told the Burmese exile Mizzima News that police officers came to her hotel and told her she had to leave the country at once. The police confiscated CDs containing photos of cyclone-hit areas. Officials at the airport stamped “Deported” in her passport.Around 10 foreign journalists have been banned from entering Burma or deported since Cyclone Nargis hit the country at the start of May. The authorities are still refusing to grant press visas and military checkpoints have been installed on several roads into the delta region, the worst-hit area. Burmese have been questioned or arrested for helping foreign journalists to travel to cyclone-hit areas.

‘Eyesore’ social housing estate in West Limerick to be completed by…

first_imgby Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick City and County Council’s director of housing, Caroline CurleyAN unfinished €2.6 million social housing development in Abbeyfeale, without public lighting or a footpath, has been deemed an “unholy mess” by local councillors.Fine Gael councillor Liam Galvin told the council executive at a special housing meeting in Newcastle West this week that the 12-unit Cois na Feile site is a concern to residents in the locality. There are another 12 empty units, privately owned on site.“This was a private development. Cluid Housing Association came and purchased the property and we sanctioned it and since then it has caused huge problems,” Cllr Galvin claimed.“It has been nothing but a disaster with the lack of infrastructure, sewerage, public lighting and footpaths. We’ve been left with this mess. The housing development was due to come on stream in June and then we were told November and now it won’t be November. We need to get up off our backsides and start moving forward,” he said.Fianna Fail councillor Francis Foley deemed the Abbeyfeale development a “disaster from the very first day”.“It’s an unholy mess. This eyesore needs to be sorted out,” he said.Cllr John Sheahan told the council executive that it needed to take full control of social housing builds so as not to end up in this situation again.“As a council we are left with egg on our face. There is a loss to the taxpayer and we could have done a lot with that money,” said Cllr Sheahan.Limerick City and County Council’s director of housing, Caroline Curley explained that work on the €2.631m development had been delayed by issues out of their control, citing delays in departmental approval, complex legalities and the procurement process as examples. Work on the site would take nine months to complete, she told local councillors, and anticipated that work would commence this June and be key ready for tenants by March 2016.Cllr Jerome Scanlan described the entire debacle as “septic”. He pointed out to council management that it would have purchased units for social housing for much less than what this development is costing.“We are stuck out in the middle of the Atlantic and we need to decide whether we keep rowing forward or turn back,” he said.“New York is in sight,” Ms Curley assured him.Sinn Fein councillor Seamus Browne said that each unit in Cois na Feile had previously been estimated to be worth €180,000. He believes they are not worth a fraction of this price. However, Ms Curley informed the Sinn Fein politician that the unit cost for each house in Cois na Feile is now €219,000.“There is nothing to justify this figure for social housing. It might be different if it were a retirement village or housing for people with disabilities. House prices are not that high in Abbeyfeale and this is taxpayers money,” Cllr Browne commented.

Forward Looking Statements This press release contains certain statements that may include “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included herein are “forward-looking statements.” The forward-looking statements are based on the Fund’s and KKR’s beliefs, assumptions and expectations of its future performance, taking into account all information currently available to it. These beliefs, assumptions and expectations can change as a result of many possible events or factors, not all of which are known to the Fund or KKR or are within their control. The Fund and KKR do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect circumstances or events that occur after the date on which such statements were made except as required by law. Fund Disclaimer This press release is not an offer to sell securities and is not soliciting an offer to buy securities in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted. Investors should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus, which contains this and other important information about the Fund, should be read carefully before investing. A copy of the prospectus can be obtained on the Fund’s website. An investment in the Fund should not constitute a complete investment program. The investment return, price, distribution rate, market value and net asset value (“NAV”) of a fund’s shares will fluctuate with market conditions. Closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their NAV, which may increase an investor’s risk of loss. There is no assurance that the Fund will meet its investment objective. The Fund’s distribution rate may be affected by numerous factors, including changes in realized and projected market returns, Fund performance, and other factors. There can be no assurance that a change in market conditions or other factors will not result in a change in a Fund distribution rate at a future time. An investment in the Fund is not appropriate for all investors and is not intended to be a complete investment program. An investment in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or even all of your investment. Therefore, prospective investors should consider carefully the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses and should consult with a tax, legal or financial advisor before making any investment decision. The market price and the NAV of the Fund’s shares will fluctuate, and it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. The Fund will invest in loans and other types of fixed‐income instruments and securities. Such investments may be secured, partially secured or unsecured and may be unrated, and whether or not rated, may have speculative characteristics. The market price of the Fund’s investments will change in response to changes in interest rates and other factors. Generally, when interest rates rise, the values of fixed‐ income instruments fall, and vice versa. Use of leverage creates an opportunity for increased income and return for Common Shareholders but, at the same time, creates risks, including the likelihood of greater volatility in the NAV and market price of, and distributions on, the Common Shares. In particular, leverage may magnify interest rate risk, which is the risk that the prices of portfolio securities will fall (or rise) if market interest rates for those types of securities rise (or fall). As a result, leverage may cause greater changes in the Fund’s NAV, which will be borne entirely by the Fund’s Common Shareholders.
