The firm said he is not suspected of fraud, but that a further review will be carried out. Rok warned full-year profits would significantly undershoot market forecasts of about £20m because of financial mismanagement in its plumbing division. The profit warning followed an independent review by accountants BDO, who found “serious failings in financial controls”.

Five things we learned – December

first_img Dan Carter deserves to be the first £1 Million playerWhen Dan Carter signed for Racing Metro he became the first £1million player in the history of rugby. Many will argue that the 2005-2008 version of Dan Carter was more worthy of a £1million price tag than the current Carter, and in all honesty, they’re spot on. Dan Carter is past his peak (but what a peak it was), the injuries are mounting and his game time is dwindling. Yet despite this he still deserves to be the highest paid player in the world. Carter is more than a role model; he is the role models’ role model. Even Jonny Wilkinson has to doff his cap to Carter.DC hasn’t just dominated his sport for over a decade, he has done so without even the slightest blemish – a high tackle on Martin Roberts in 2009 probably being the nearest that he has come to a misdemeanour. The likes of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods have all lost their shine at one point or another. Even the angelic Roger Federer has been known to smash a few racquets. Not Carter. His off-field performances have always been matched by his on-field genius and once retired is certain to become a Knight in New Zealand’s Order of Merit. Bit of advice though, Dan. If you are trumpeted for a Knighthood don’t mention it on Twitter unless you’re 100% sure…National Dual Contracts are workingAs with all things in Welsh rugby there is little agreement on any subject, let alone something as vital to the future of Welsh rugby as National Dual Contracts (NDC) – the process by which both the WRU and a Welsh region splits the funding of an individual player 60%/40%. December saw the announcement that Dan Lydiate, Hallam Amos, Tyler Morgan and Rhodri Jones have joined Sam Warburton in signing a Dual Contract, and just today, Jake Ball signed on the dotted line. The signing of players who have not yet nailed a place in the Welsh team has raised a few eyebrows, particularly the signing of Rhodri Jones who is as yet to have commandeered a starting role at his regions let alone Wales.Sign on the dotted line: Jake Ball is the latest player to sign a National Dual ContractHowever, despite misgivings towards NDC they are already working. Eighteen months ago the Welsh media was full of rugby administrators, coaches and pundits wearing black shrouds, wailing on their knees, and bemoaning the death of Welsh rugby. That is no longer the case. Players arent fleeing in their droves as Wales now has the ability to retain them. Warren Gatland has already contracted two senior internationals and I understand that after another simple discussion, another three or four players will follow. NDC’s may not be a perfect option, but they are a damn sight better than no option at all.‘Crocodile Rolls’ need addressing.Alligator Rolls/Gator Rolls, whatever you want to call them; the process of twisting/ rolling a player off his feet at the ruck, is a serious issue for rugby. It’s understandable why this new manoeuvre has become so prevalent. Trying to shift 17-plus stone of muscle once it is in a low, stable body position is nigh on impossible.However the ‘Gator Roll’ often involves rolling the player with one arm around the upper chest and neck. The taking of the ‘neck’ is a particularly effective tool as once a players head is forced to move, the rest of the body has little choice but to follow. But it does seem strange that this taking of the neck is allowed by referees. Particularly when you consider how tip-tackles and high-tackles are rightly refereed with such vigour. The constant flux of rugby union means there is always an area of the game that requires immediate attention – the ‘Croc-Roll’ should be next. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Worth the money: Dan Carter may not be in his pomp but he’s a bonafide superstar In a monthly wrap, RW discusses the salary cap, the million pound man – Dan Carter, dual contracts and the crocodile rolls Nonu is a riskMa’a Nonu is obviously a massive signing for Toulon; quite literally in fact, his potential partnership with Mathieu Bastareaud could trigger a Tsunami every time they play at the Stade Mayol. He is arguably the best 12 in the world and no-one combines his ability to crash the 12/ 13 channel and zip a 20-foot spiral pass off both hands – no-one. However, whilst Nonu is the best 12 at test level many, particularly in New Zealand, would question his form at club level.Risky business: There is no guarantee Ma’a Nonu will be a success at ToulonNonu has a mixed record in Super Rugby and has played for three of the five franchises. The last time that the NZRU had to find Nonu a new franchise there was a genuine reluctance from all parties to take a risk on him. His relationship with the former Hurricanes, and now Cardiff Blues coach, Mark Hammett brought a level of iciness not seen since Elsa, Princess of Arendelle, last lost her rag. There is no doubt that Nonu’s signing has stolen the transfer headlines for Toulon – but let’s hope that the headlines remain positive throughout his contract.Salary Cap Suicide.December saw Saracens release a statement saying there was widespread support – well, seven clubs, who are yet to go public – calling for a scrapping of the salary cap which currently exists in the Aviva Premiership. Whilst there are clear benefits to increasing the cap slightly, in order to compete with the French, scrapping it altogether would be suicide for the English top flight. Removal of the salary cap would simply increase salary inflation year-on-year and lead to the unsustainable mess that many football clubs find themselves in.Sarries divide: There has been a tepid reaction to Ed Griffiths’ call for a scrap to the salary capFor example in 2012/13 The English Premiership had a wages-to-revenue figure of 71% – it was just 44% during the Premier League’s first season in 1991-1992. The net result of wage inflation would be an increase in the already widening gulf between those with wealthy benefactors and those without. It is a very serious issue that wouldn’t just affect the club game in England, but potentially across the world.last_img read more

Photo: SOMA UK[Religion Unplugged] At least 23 people were killed and 20 others were wounded when unidentified gunmen stormed a church compound in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan’s Diocese of Athooch in Jonglei state on July 27. The assailants took six children as hostages, Bishop Moses Anur Ayom told Religion Unplugged.The gunmen attacked Makol Chuei village from two directions, killing the cathedral’s dean and at least 14 women and children who had sought refuge in the church compound, vandalizing the church, destroying their worship instruments and then setting the area ablaze along with the entire village.“After killing people in the church, the gunmen went to the homestead village and killed people there,” Ayom said. “The gunmen burned down the whole village in Makol Chuei. Thus far, we have six people who are missing and we are not sure whether they are alive or dead. In addition, six children were also abducted.”About 90% of Jonglei state’s population is Christian, but they are from many different ethnic tribes. Communal violence has intensified in the state, recently killing hundreds of civilians and creating humanitarian emergencies in the region. Meanwhile, political leaders are meeting in the South Sudan capital of Juba to implement the revitalized peace agreement designed to end the six-year civil war pitting President Salva Kiir Mayardit against the opposition leader, First Vice President Riek Machar Teny.The country’s vice president, James Wani Igga, visited Jonglei earlier in July and kneeled in front of the warring communities, begging them to embrace a peaceful means of resolving differences.There have been ongoing clashes between the Nuer, Dinka and Murle tribes in Jonglei since before the creation of the Pibor Administrative Area in 2014. In mid-May, gunmen armed with machine guns attacked villages in Jonglei, killing hundreds of people, including a number of aid workers. Thousands of civilians were displaced. Several peace activists have accused the government of doing little to quell the cycle of tribal conflicts in the region.Participants at the recent peace conference in Jonglei that brought together traditional elders and government officials headed by Igga recommended the creation of a buffer zone and deployment of neutral armed forces to curtail the counter attacks between the youth from Jonglei and the Pibor Administrative Area.Rampant cattle raiding, child abduction and conflict over grazing land have been blamed for the unrest in Jonglei. However, Bishop Ayom believes the latest killing of women and children in the church compound is politically motivated.“The only solution to the communal conflict is to engage the youth, elders, and church leaders and bring them together for peace dialogue,” Ayom said.Another attack in Jalle village killed an Anglican archdeacon, Jacob Amanjok, along with three pastors.“There is no need of killing the pastors,” Ayom said. “I am not happy about this issue of killing and destroying churches. I would like to appeal to the international community to intervene. As a church leader, I forgive the gunmen. The Bible says we have to forgive those who do wrong to us.”The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Deng Dau Deng, confirmed the incident in Makol Chuei, calling on the United Nations mission in the country to intervene and save the lives of people wounded in the communal fighting.Deng said the hospital in Juba is full of patients wounded by gunshots and fire and asks the U.N. to help equip facilities with doctors and medical equipment.The proliferation and misuse of small arms and light weapons is one of the most pervasive problems facing South Sudan, and one which it has been struggling to reverse since before independence in July 2011.Several attempts to disarm civilians have been unsuccessful and have increased insecurity. The lack of a consistent country-wide approach to disarmament has meant that communities that have been disarmed are vulnerable to attacks from their neighbors who have not.President Mayardit recently appointed a committee chaired by Lieutenant General Rin Tueny Mabor and mandated to use minimum force in disarming the heavily armed communities in Warrap and Lakes states, as well as Terekeka County.The rise in communal conflict among Nuer, Dinka and Murle ethnic groups threatens the implementation of the peace agreement, shifting the attention of peace partners from solving national issues to addressing communal tensions.Due to a U.N. arms embargo, the government of South Sudan said it cannot buy arms to enable the country’s armed forces and police to enforce law and order in parts of the country.“The civilians are better armed than the government,” said Deputy Minister Deng. “This is the challenge because we have been locked in, and we cannot access the international market even just to arm the police for them to keep law and order.”The U.N. Security Council in 2018 imposed an arms embargo and placed sanctions on top of government and opposition officials branded as “the peace spoilers” in an attempt to pressure the regime and the warring factions to commit to the peace agreement to end the conflict in the world’s youngest country.“Under the terms of the resolution, all Member States must prevent arms and related equipment of all types, including weapons and ammunition, military vehicles and equipment, paramilitary equipment and any spare parts-from entering South Sudan,” the U.N. Security Council resolution read.The United States ambassador to South Sudan, Thomas Hushek, has said that easing the painful sanctions and arms embargo depends on the South Sudan government’s willingness to fully implement the provisions of the peace agreement.The international community will lift the sanctions and arms embargo on South Sudan only if the government and parties signatories to the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) fully and in a timely fashion execute the agreement.The implementation of the revitalized peace agreement is facing challenges relating to funding and a desire to implement critical reform protocols as well the need for the establishment of special court to try the perpetrators of human rights abuses to ensure accountability and justice in the country.Though the main opposition leader, Teny, and other opposition factions joined the government in implementing the fragile revitalized peace agreement in anticipation of ending the conflict, military skirmishes are still taking place on the outskirts of Juba between the government forces and the National Salvation Front (NAS).The NAS leader, General Thomas Cirilo Swaka, signed a declaration of cessation of hostilities in 2018, but later rejected the agreement, saying the deal falls short of addressing the root causes of the conflict.The signatories to the peace agreement formed the revitalized transitional government of national unity in February 2020, appointing a coalition of cabinet ministers and nine out of ten state governors. However, the security arrangement protocol remains only partially implemented.The security arrangement protocol provides for the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of the armed forces and the formation of an inclusive national army, as well as the demilitarization of Juba and the deployment of necessary unified forces and joint integrated police to protect senior government officials in order to prevent the recurrence of conflict similar to that triggered by the July 2016 “state-house invasion.”This story is republished with permission from Religion Unplugged.

The site of the Mebius house is located ten minutes away from Kamakura. To the West it is surrounded by a mountain range. To the South and East are an Urbanization Control Area. This restricts all future building in those areas. Thus the promise of unspoiled surrounding greenery made for a highly appealing site.

Though the rough terrain did pose some problems. The mountains to the south restricted the amount of sunlight that could penetrate the house in winter. Uneven land posed challenges to how construction could be carried out. Atelier Tekuto based their design on various rhythms and wavelengths, such as those of the sun, lunar cycles, plant life and human cycles. Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaAtelier Tekuto’s aim was to provide a place where one had a multiplicity of spatial choice depending on the seasons, the different time of day, the particular activity, or what mood one is in. The building’s space is a fusion of interior and exterior layers. The plans specifically called for a corridor that formed a quadrangle, accompanied by other spaces of complementary volumes.  Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaThere was also the need to minimize the amount of excavation due to the uneven flag-like shape of the site. Atelier Tekuto did not try to fight the natural conditions of the environment, but used the uneven land to Atelier Tekuto’s advantage and established multiple levels. Thus the building grew as a space full of architectural rhythm, bearing not just a plain facade, but an eye-catching sense of verticality.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaProject gallerySee allShow lessHotel + Spa in Gdynia / Igor BrożynaArticlesTrimo Urban Crash 2011: Opening of the Winning Life StandArticles Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/143208/mebius-atelier-tekuto Clipboard Architects: Atelier Tekuto Photographs Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/143208/mebius-atelier-tekuto Clipboard Save this picture!© Toshihiro Sobajima+ 23 Share CopyAbout this officeAtelier TekutoOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKamakura-shiWoodHousesJapanPublished on July 17, 2011Cite: “Mebius / Atelier Tekuto” 17 Jul 2011.

The case is to be heard on 6 December by the magistrate’s court in Nancy.The organisation believes that the display of violence by Gélaucourt’s mayor Michel Capdevielle was unacceptable, especially as it came from an elected official and its targets were two journalists who were just doing their job.The journalists, Abdul Traoré and cameraman Hartmut Müller, went to Gélaucourt on behalf of the Saarlandischer Rundfunk (Saarland Broadcasting Company) to report on the differences between the mayor and certain members of his electorate who accuse him of abuse of authority. The mayor seized Müller’s camera, hit him with it in the face, threw it to the ground, and uttered racists insults against Traoré.In their lawsuit, the journalists accuse the mayor of violence by a public official, damage to the property of another person, and public insult of an individual based on race, religion or origin.
