A FTSE 250 dividend stock I’d definitely steer clear of right now

first_imgHowever, the short situation now looks even worse. According to shorttracker.co.uk, Cineworld is currently the second most shorted stock with 13.6% of its shares being shorted. In other words, the hedgies have upped their stake, despite the fact that the share price has fallen recently. That’s not good.So, what could it be that the hedge funds don’t like here?Hedge funds smell bloodWell for starters, the group issued a disappointing trading update in December. Describing the backdrop as “challenging”, the company reported a 9.7% decline in total revenue (and a 12.8% decline in box office revenue) for the period 1 January 2019 to 1 December. It also advised that revenue for the full year is expected to be slightly below the company’s expectations.Growing debt pileSecond, Cineworld recently announced the acquisition of Canada’s Cineplex for $2.1bn. Now, the FTSE 250 company already had a large chunk of debt on its balance sheet. Recent half-year results showed a net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio (a measure of a company’s ability to pay off its debt) of 3.3 times, which is high. This acquisition, which will be debt-funded, will further increase its leverage. That’s not ideal, particularly when you consider that we are late in the economic cycle. A high level of debt means the company could be extremely vulnerable in the event of a recession.Netflix threatFinally, there’s the competition that cinema operators face from Netflix. I see this as a significant long-term threat. Given that a basic monthly subscription to Netflix costs less than £10 (which gets you access to an incredible range of TV shows and movies) versus around £25 to £30 for two movie tickets, the outlook for cinema operators looks challenging, to my mind.Cineworld shares do look cheap at the moment. Currently, the forward-looking P/E ratio is just eight. However, given the high level of short interest, I think the most sensible move is to steer clear. One thing I like to keep an eye on as part of my investment research is the list of the most shorted stocks on the London Stock Exchange at shorttracker.co.uk. This list contains the companies that hedge funds are betting against the most.Now, the hedge funds don’t always get it right. But quite often, they do. Just look at some of the companies that have been shorted heavily by the hedgies in recent years – Carillion, Thomas Cook, Debenhams… all of these companies turned out to be shocking investments.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With that in mind, today I want to warn readers about a well-known FTSE 250 stock that is being heavily shorted right now. Given the high level of short interest, I think investors need to be very careful with this stock.Tread carefullyThe FTSE 250 stock I’m referring to is Cineworld (LSE: CINE), the second-largest cinema operator globally.This is not the first time I’ve warned about the short interest here. Back in early November, when the stock was trading at around 225p, I warned that 10.1% of its shares were being shorted (I see anything above 7% as risky) and that it was the third most shorted stock in the UK. I saw that as “quite concerning.” Today, the shares change hands for around 190p, meaning they’ve fallen 15% since then.

On the other, a high-end designer company known for its handbags. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…They are almost diametrically opposed firms in most people’s eyes, so it may have been a shock to hear that Frasers Group (LSE: FRAS), as Sports Direct is now known, is tying itself up with Mulberry much more closely via a stake buy.Moving upmarketThis shift towards a more upmarket brand is no longer, of course, at least for those of us following the Sports Direct/Frasers story, a surprise. Indeed, the renaming of the parent company to Frasers signalled a move to diversify away from cheap sporting goods (though they of course still make up the foundation of its business). It took on a derivative of the House of Fraser name, the takeover of which caused major problems for it given the weak state of the business.So what is behind the Mulberry link-up? A statement from the company said: “A key strategic priority for Frasers is the elevation of our retail proposition and building stronger relationships with premium third-party brands,” Frasers has bought a 12.5% stake in Mulberry, hinting that it may undertake more “strategic investments” in the future.Unfortunately for Frasers, a number of strategic investments it has made so far have not necessarily worked out well, most notably Debenhams (in which it lost its entire stake) and Goals Soccer Centres. That said, Mulberry is a significant supplier of House of Fraser, with concessions in its stores, and so Frasers’ investment is perhaps more in line with business-as-usual than it may first appear.And its share price seems to have benefited from its move upmarket of late. It closed at 464.60p on Friday, up from 272.60p a year ago. But can it continue to rise from here? If its upmarket move works, it should do. But there have been some other issues affecting the share price too. Bye, bye tax manJanuary did see some good news relating to one of them, with the Belgian tax authority concluding most of its investigation into a tax dispute that had delayed Sports Direct’s full-year results last July. The results of the investigation seem to suggest that the correct amount of tax had been paid, but “the documentation provided and process followed were incorrect”.This certainly removes a cloud of risk that has been overshadowing Frasers for some time, as the potential tax liability the firm may have suffered amounted to about three times its annual profits. That said, there are still questions being raised about the company’s financial audits.The Financial Reporting Council, the UK audit regulator, has in fact taken the company to court to gain access to documentation it had provided its then accountant Grant Thornton, with specific relevance to its 2016 audit of the business.I think Frasers’ moves towards strategic investments may work out for the firm, and the Belgian tax case news is all good. But I still think there is a lot of risk surrounding the company so I still see it as too risky for now.center_img What could Mike Ashley’s upmarket efforts mean for the Frasers Group share price?

Is this FTSE 100 5% dividend yield a brilliant buy or an investor trap?

first_img London’s quoted housebuilders have been some of the strongest risers so far in 2020. A so-called Boris Bounce following December’s general election has been seen across many parts of the UK economy. But the uplift to the home creators has been particularly strong since the middle of last month.A stream of positive trading updates from these businesses has underlined the strength of the market. So, too, have a myriad of industry gauges on the health of the housing sector. The Office for National Statistics is the latest body to pipe up today to chat about the strength of the homes market.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…It says that the average home price rose 2.2% annually in December, to £235,000. This is up half a percentage point from the yearly growth printed a month earlier.Capital gainsThe release was particularly good reading for The Berkeley Group (LSE: BKG). The lion’s share of this builder’s sites is located in and around London and the South East of England. And property prices across these regions have been hit particularly hard in the fallout of the 2016 Brexit referendum.Could the report suggest that the market in the capital has turned a corner, though? The ONS says that average house prices grew 2.3% year on year in December. This was the sharpest increase since October 2017. And it was a vast improvement on recent surveys, too. Corresponding home values had risen by a modest 0.4% in November. They had fallen 1.2% during the 12 months to October, too.Distorted figures?Before you get too carried away, though, it’s worth noting ONS comments on that latest upswing. It says that the increase in the average growth rate “could instead be the result of a larger than usual shift in the type of properties being sold.”In essence, what this means is that the sale of higher-value properties last month – homes that are ubiquitous in the capital, of course – could distort the overall average price growth figure. There could be some truth to this. That report shows, for the most part, that sales of properties worth £900,000 and above in December outpaced those in either of the previous two months.On the up!While the ONS has a point, then, it does seem as if the broader London property market has in fact picked up more recently. Crest Nicholson for example, a firm with as significant exposure to the capital and the Home Counties as Berkeley, said last month that “footfall and visitor numbers on our developments have increased and traffic on our website is up” since late 2019’s election.City analysts certainly believe things are looking up for Berkeley. They expect it to recover from a 29% earnings fall in the fiscal year to April 2020 with a 4% rise in the following period.Recent announcements from Berkeley illustrate its own confidence in the long-term robustness of the market, too. In late January it declared plans to return an extra £1bn to shareholders over the next two years. It said it’s aiming to supercharge production rates by 50% for the next six years, too.Berkeley’s share price share price continues to rip higher, and an undemanding forward price-to-earnings ratio of 15.8 times suggests that it could have further to run. Combine this with a bold 4.9% corresponding dividend yield and I reckon the builder is a top buy today.

Lloyds Bank share price is at its lowest in 4 months. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Manika Premsingh | Monday, 24th February, 2020 | More on: LLOY I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100 banking giant Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) isn’t in a good place. Its share price dropped to a four-month low of 55.3p at the last close. What’s worse, it’s also down by 13% from the start of 2020. Broader stock-market plungeAs an investor, should I now be worried about Lloyds’s share price fall? I’d take some comfort by considering the larger context. The bank’s part of the FTSE 100, which too has declined from the start of the year, though by a far smaller 2.6%. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rising global uncertainty, led by fears of the coronavirus, has impacted the overall stock markets. It’s to be expected that a cyclical stock like LLOY sees a sharper dip. The fall wouldn’t be particularly worrisome if the uncertainty had been contained. Unfortunately, it hasn’t, as the virus’s impact is getting bigger as it spreads outside China. Tied to the economy Added to this is the fact that the UK economy isn’t entirely out of the woods either. In the last quarter of 2019, UK’s growth showed no change from the quarter before. Forward-looking indicators do suggest recovery, but I’d wait for confirmation from official numbers. This will inform me of both whether the recovery is taking place and if it is, the extent to which it’s occurring.  If the recovery is weak, it may mean nothing for LLOY. If it is robust, however, banking of all the sectors could be in for good times given how tightly it’s linked to economic conditions. But we don’t know that for certain right now. In fact, further spread of COVID-19 could put a dent to UK’s recovery, at least in the short term. Over the longer term as well, it’s a wait and watch situation. The economic outcome will also be influenced significantly by Brexit negotiations with the EU.  Investing for high passive income With so many question marks about the future, I’d be particularly cautious of investing in LLOY for capital gains. The share doesn’t have a good track-record of recovery for the patient investor.  Even if I consider its performance over a shorter time frame, it has been disappointing. Over the past five years, on average, the LLOY share price has risen by just a little over 2%. Many other FTSE 100 stocks have shown much better performance over the same period. I do like its 6.1% dividend yield, however. It’s significantly above the FTSE 100 average yield and there’s reason to believe that dividend income will continue to be rewarding for investors. LLOY increased the payout in 2019 by 5% to 3.37p from the year before. In its latest financial results, it says that it will “continue to target a progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend”.For the foreseeable future, I’d consider LLOY as an income investment. I’d only look at it as a growth investment if was really optimistic. At the very least, I’d like to see more concrete evidence that the share price is on an upswing before investing for capital appreciation. Image source: Getty Images.

And I think this could be just the beginning of a much larger upswing.It is beginning to look as if the world may be able to get the coronavirus outbreak under control with vaccines by the middle of next year. Such a development would be hugely positive for stocks and the global economy.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What’s more, governments around the world are planning massive stimulus programmes as they recover from the crisis. I reckon these twin tailwinds of vaccines and economic stimulus could send stocks surging higher in 2021. As such, I’ve been eyeing up some potential investments to buy for 2021. Here are a couple of my favourites, which I believe have the potential to double in the near term. UK shares on offer One play on the economic stimulus measures I have been considering is Ukrainian iron ore producer Ferrexpo.Iron ore prices have already started to increase over the past couple of months as traders have begun to anticipate increased demand for the commodity. Ferrexpo is set to benefit significantly if City expectations are anything to go by. Analysts have already hiked their earnings estimates for the company this year by 100% since April. I believe further growth in 2021 could see the stock achieve significant total returns for its investors. Other UK shares I am considering for 2021 include System1 Group and RELX.RELX is a global provider of information and analytics for professional and business customers across industries. This section of the company has continued to see steady demand for its services in 2020. Unfortunately, the operation also runs exhibitions. This part of the business hasn’t been so lucky. RELX has had to smash jobs as demand for exhibition services has slumped. Still, I’m optimistic that when exhibitions return, the group can use its size to grab market share, which may put it on a strong growth trajectory. System1, meanwhile, has made a handful of mistakes over the past few years, which have caused investors to sell the shares. Nevertheless, the organisation is a leader in artificial intelligence and behavioural analysis. Growing demand for these services could help the business instigate a recovery over the next few years. Growth potentialI’ve been watching two UK shares closely that seem to have benefited from the pandemic. These are Mr Kipling owner Premier Foods and Reach. Formerly known as Trinity Mirror, Reach has seen a significant decline in revenues for its print publications during 2020. Luckily, rising digital sales have compensated for some of these losses. I think the additional cash flow from the digital business will provide the company with additional capital to drive growth in the years ahead. The same goes for Premier Foods. A boom in sales during the pandemic has allowed the firm to pay off a large chunk of its debt, dramatically improving the company’s balance sheet. I reckon the corporation’s newfound financial strength could help underpin growth in the medium term.  Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 13th December, 2020 See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The global stock market rally has caught many investors by surprise. However, despite the positive performance of international stocks over the past few months, UK shares continue to look cheap. Indeed, on one estimate, UK shares are trading at the most significant discount to international peers in 40 years. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As such, I’d make the most of this opportunity and buy these dirt-cheap investments to build wealth in the long run. Stock market rally The stock market has rallied significantly over the past few weeks. It’s easy to see why investor sentiment has improved so much since the summer. The world seems to be winning the slow fight against coronavirus, and the economic fallout hasn’t been as bad as expected.Most economies rebounded reasonably quickly from the lockdowns imposed to try and control the spread of the virus earlier this year. That implies there could be a strong rebound after the second set of lockdowns as well. Against this backdrop, investor sentiment has improved during the past few weeks. Unfortunately, sentiment towards UK shares has remained depressed in the stock market rally. It seems to me the market is worried about Brexit. However, I reckon these concerns are overdone. We only need to look at the number of takeovers that have been thrust against UK companies this year. Some of these deals, such as Cisco‘s $730m deal for AIM-listed IMImobile, have been launched at substantial premiums.For example, Cisco offered a premium of 48% to IMI’s market price. I think this shows just how undervalued the UK market is. If it had bought the stock in the market, Cisco could have saved several hundred million dollars. Clearly, both parties thought the firm was worth substantially more. This isn’t the only example. The five weeks to 25 November saw a total of 14 takeover deals with an average premium of 46%! To put it another way, the market may be worried about the outlook for UK shares, but buyers have clearly not been put off by the UK’s economic outlook.Buying cheap UK sharesThis is the main reason why I’d buy cheap UK shares today before the stock market rally takes off. These companies are undervalued, and it seems as if buyers are quickly waking up to that fact. Based on the recent flurry of deals, I wouldn’t rule out future acquisitions. What’s more, these recent deals suggest UK equities could rise substantially from current levels when the covering of uncertainty surrounding the UK economy starts to lift. The best way to play this theme, in my opinion, could be to buy a basket of cheap UK shares, or an index tracker such as the FTSE All-Share. The index current offers a dividend yield of around 4% so investors will be paid to wait for its performance to improve.The same can be said for many other individual UK stocks. Holding these investments is one of the best ways to play the stock market rally, in my view.

The Ocado share price has beaten the FTSE 100 hands down in 2020

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I bet those who invested in Ocado Group (LSE: OCDO) at the start of 2020 are smiling as they look at how well they’ve done. Approaching Christmas, the Ocado share price has climbed 80%. That’s a cracking result for any year. And it looks a little bit sweeter compared to the FTSE 100‘s fall of 15%.Ocado shares have been even higher during the year, topping out with a 125% gain in September before dropping back. But why have investors elevated a simple online supermarket to such high levels? And can the outperformance continue?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The most recent Kantar figures give Ocado just 1.7% of the UK’s groceries market. It’s in last place, below ‘Other outlets’. By contrast, market leader Tesco commands 27% of the market. A look at the relative valuations of the two companies reveals something rather alarming. Tesco currently has a market capitalisation of approximately £21.7bn, while Ocado comes in at £17.5bn. Despite Ocado having only around 6% of Tesco’s market share, investors rate it at 80% of Tesco’s valuation. The market is clearly not valuing Ocado shares as simple supermarket stocks.Technology companyOcado’s tie-up with Marks & Spencer does appear to be going well. In the company’s last update, on 10 December, we heard of “continued positive customer response to [the] M&S offering.” Retail revenue grew by 35%, with customer orders averaging £133 in value. But we won’t see any actual profit from that any time soon. You know what profit is, the lifeblood of successful companies, and the stuff that Tesco brings in mountains of every year.It’s all about seeing Ocado as a supplier of online shopping technology and expertise. Ocado has already provided the know-how to get a number of worldwide operations under way, and investors clearly hope for more of that to come. But the big question for me is whether there really is the market in online retailing technology to justify today’s Ocado share price.Ocado share price valuationAnalysts expect Ocado to record a loss per share of around 20p this year, with a bigger loss of 22p on the cards for 2021. So trying to think of any kind of P/E valuation right now is a non-starter. And of course, there’s nothing approaching a dividend likely to come any time soon. I reckon guessing at a fair Ocado share price can only really be done by elevating fingers into the atmosphere. And my finger would pluck out something a lot lower than the actual price.But what about all that shopping technology potential? Well, plenty of others around the globe have got the market well understood. Tesco has far more experience of getting goods actually off the shelves and delivered. And there are many other companies doing online selling in vastly greater volumes than Ocado can hope. Amazon springs to mind as a world leader.The Ocado share price has done far better than I could have expected in 2020. But I really do think it’s seriously over-inflated now.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The past year has been volatile for stocks because of the pandemic. And many shares have bounced back the lows of last spring. But some share prices remain weak because their underlying businesses have been affected more by the lockdowns.But investors brave enough to buy stocks near their lows last year will have done well in many cases. However, now that vaccines are rolling out, I think there’s an opportunity to buy stocks to hold for the long term. And we could see a general bull market through 2021.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Looking for the best sharesI’d aim to fill my Stocks and Shares ISA with investments backed by high-quality underlying businesses. Many great companies listed in London have the potential to thrive in the coming years. And as an investor in their shares, I’d expect to benefit from an increasing dividend income stream and capital gains from a rising share price.Of course, those benefits are not guaranteed. Investing in shares always carries an element of risk. For example, the underlying businesses may not perform as expected and their share prices could fall causing me to lose money. But I’d aim to reduce the risk by researching my investments and focusing on quality and value indicators.For example, I like the look of telecoms giant Vodafone. The business enjoys the advantage of owning infrastructure networks that are hard for competitors to replicate. But three years ago, the valuation was high, making the stock look expensive. However, the share price eased back since then and now the stock looks like better value to me.Vodafone has a decent record of cash flow generation. And City analysts expect the firm’s earnings to rebound in the trading year to March 2022. There’s a fat dividend yield above 5% and potential for the business to grow. However, one area of risk is that the company has a lot of debt, so I’d aim to keep an eye on that.Growth potential and risksI’m also keen on insurance and investments company Aviva and groundworks and geotechnical solutions specialist Keller. Both firms are paying chunky shareholder dividends right now and I reckon they have the potential to grow their operations in the years ahead. However, those two enterprises operate in cyclical sectors. And if I’ve misjudged my analysis, their businesses may underperform going forward and I could lose money on my investments.Meanwhile, fitted kitchen and joinery manufacturer Howden Joinery has robust forward estimates for earnings. But the valuation looks rich and the dividend yield is below 2%. Despite the valuation risk, I like the quality indicators for this business and believe the company has earned its higher rating. I think the business could have a bright future. But the biggest risk to my investment would be that my assumptions could prove to be wrong.Finally, I’m keen on private label household and personal care products maker McBride. The valuation looks modest and I reckon the business has the potential to grow. But the company is small and has a history of volatile earnings. The big risk is that going forward, earnings could fall again. Nevertheless, the shares tempt me. Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares UK share prices are slipping again as fears concerning the fight against Covid-19 resurface. It’s clear that investors like me need to remain careful as the pandemic rages on. And in this climate, spending money that I can’t afford to lose on stock is a particularly bad idea. But I don’t think the uncertain economic outlook means investors like me should stop buying British stocks altogether.This is because there are plenty of UK shares out there to keep even the most pessimistic of investors happy. British stock pickers can choose from a galaxy of defensive shares like general insurance providers, food manufacturers, energy suppliers and healthcare providers. Earnings at these sorts of stocks remain relatively stable during all points of the economic cycle.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Some UK shares will even thrive in the event of a long slump in the global economy. From pawnbrokers to gold producers and insolvency practitioners to alcohol makers, many London-quoted stocks enjoy their most fruitful periods during downturns like this.Additionally, investors can buy companies that derive all, or almost all, of their profits from parts of the world where the Covid-19 crisis is less of a risk. Take China for instance. Strict clampdowns there at the start of the pandemic have caused infection rates to slow to a trickle. So the outlook for a large number of Asia-focused UK shares is quite robust.I think there are many quality stocks trading far too cheaply to miss out on today. Some trade on historically-low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios. Others boast big dividend yields. A large number of British stocks even carry both.2 UK shares on my ISA shopping listWith all this in mind, here are two UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my own Stocks and Shares ISA in March.#1: United UtilitiesUtilities shares like United Utilities Group are always under threat from regulators, as recent proposals from Ofgem surrounding National Grid have shown. There’s also the threat posed by elevated levels of water consumption which can require extra spending on infrastructure. But I still think this FTSE 100 water supplier is a great buy today. Demand for its services remains relatively constant, regardless of broader economic conditions. And, right now, United Utilities boasts a gigantic 4.5% forward dividend yield. Remember that dividend projections and earnings estimates can sometimes miss their mark by a wide margin however.#2: ECO Animal Health GroupDrugs developer ECO Animal Health Group also operates in a mega-resilient market. The amount spent on healthcare for animals in the food chain is always pretty stable. This is because meat and dairy product sales remain hardy even during recessions. In fact, City analysts think annual earnings at this UK share will soar 215% this year (to March). This leaves it trading on a low forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.1. A word of warning though. Animal-related stocks like this can see revenues take a major hit if disease rips through livestock markets. This is what happened last year when African Swine Flu swept through pig stocks in China. 2 UK shares I’d buy in March for my Stocks and Shares ISA Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Image source: Getty Images Oatly (NASDAQ: OTLY), a plant-based milk specialist, launched on the NASDAQ last week via an initial public offering (IPO). It listed at around $17 a share, with a valuation of $10bn. On the day, the Oatly share price rose above $22, valuing it above $13bn (£9.2bn), but it has since settled back at around $20.Why is oat milk popular?Plant-based foods and drinks are hot properties as individuals commit to making lifestyle changes in a bid to ‘save the planet’. Oat milk scores highly here. It’s apparently slightly better for the environment than almond milk and it uses much less water than other plant-based milks. It also produces less CO2 than cow’s milk. Plus oats require 80% less land to grow than dairy milk needs in the process of raising cows.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…But it’s not only environmental reasons driving oat milk popularity higher. More people are choosing dairy-free diets for health reasons too.Last year in the US, oat milk sales soared 400% to $213m. And many big names are boosting the trend. Oprah Winfrey, Howard Schultz, Jay-Z and Natalie Portman all backed the Oatly deal.Such a pronounced celebrity backing shouldn’t be underestimated. Oprah, Jay-Z and Schultz are all successful investors in their own right and are unlikely to want to risk their reputations on a gimmick. They also have big platforms from which to sing its praises.Oatly has also struck impressive partnerships with Starbucks and Alibaba.From Sweden to New YorkDespite listing in New York, Oatly is based in Sweden. It’s believed to have chosen the US because of its soaring consumption of plant-based and non-dairy foods. Of course, New York listings tend to be higher-profile too. The company has long been ahead of the game as it launched in Sweden in the 1990s. But its popularity soared after debuting in the US in 2016. It now makes yogurt and ice cream too.The company intends to use the proceeds from its IPO to expand its production facilities. This includes a large UK factory where it also sees a clear growth opportunity. This factory will have the capacity to produce 300m litres of oat milk annually and will create more than 200 jobs.Shareholder risksBut the future may not be all rosy. Competition from big food manufacturers and supermarkets is intensifying. And while Oatly has made heavy investments in its expansion and marketing initiatives, it’s losing money. Despite being established for 25 years it’s still unprofitable.Although I like the product, I do wonder if it’s cashing in on a fad. My concern is that oat milk may well go out of favour as quickly as it arrived.Personally, I think a $10bn plus market cap is very high. I can make oat milk cheaply at home in a blender and Oatly cartons are expensive. Nevertheless, I do occasionally buy it and so do an increasing number of shoppers. But for now, I’m quite happy to watch its progress from the sidelines.I think Oatly is far from a bargain share and I’m not tempted to add it to my Stocks and Shares ISA just yet.

Paul Summers | Sunday, 30th May, 2021 | More on: SMT SSON This is not to say that there’s aren’t a few things to bear in mind. While the ongoing charge of 0.9% certainly isn’t the highest in the market, it’s still high. Regardless of how manager Simon Barnard performs from here, that fee will always be due. One also needs to bear in mind that relatively youthful Barnard doesn’t have a long track record. This, however, is a risk I’m comfortable with. With its premium to net asset value dropping in recent weeks, I’m taking advantage while I can.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The rotation from growth to value stocks by investors over the last few months has hit the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust‘s (LSE: SMT) share price. On Friday, it closed at 1,195p. That’s 15% off the all-time high it hit earlier in 2021.Aside from the valuations of holdings such as Tesla taking a (long overdue) tumble, SMT has faced another recent setback in the announcement that co-manager James Anderson will be retiring.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As a long-term investor, however, I’ve been buying more of the investment trust in May. Here’s why.Disruption…on the cheapWhile the departure of Anderson is a shame, it’s not a complete surprise. A 21 year-stint (22 by the time he actually leaves) is a long time to manage the same fund. The need for fresh blood and new investment ideas is both inevitable and healthy. Notwithstanding this, I’m reassured that Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust’s other manager, Tom Slater, is staying put. This should make the eventual succession process a lot smoother.  SMT’s low ongoing charge (0.36%) also remains a big pull for me. This is a very cheap way of getting access to some of the most disruptive growth stocks in the world. It’s even on par with many passively-managed exchange-traded funds. Personally, I’m a big fan of having both active and passive elements to my portfolio so long as the fees charged by the latter can be justified. I don’t think this has ever been a problem when it comes to the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust. It’s climbed 359% in value over the last five years.center_img Paul Summers owns shares in Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust and Smithson Investment Trust.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Sure, there’s no guarantee that the share price won’t continue to wobble. Concerns over inflation mean that risky, ‘blue sky’ stocks might remain out of favour. Many investors will also be looking to capitalise on reopening opportunities as vaccination programmes make an impact. Previously out-of-favour sectors such airlines, pub chains and high street retailers are back on buy lists.On this front, I’m taking a balanced approach. Some of my money is invested in stocks that I think could benefit from a return to normality. But sell my holding in a trust that could still provide great returns for many years to come? Absolutely not!Also on my shopping listSMT isn’t the only investment trust I’ve been buying in May. I’ve also been adding to my already-sizeable stake in Smithson Investment Trust (LSE: SSON).Like Scottish Mortgage, Smithson’s share price has been a bit volatile in recent months. Since its aim is only to invest in high-quality small and mid-cap firms, that’s not really surprising. Most of these rarely trade on cheap valuations. One can’t ignore the possibility that some early investors may be keen to bank profits. Since launch in October 2018 to the end of April 2021, Smithson achieved a quite brilliant annualised return of 25.4%.  Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Toby Booth on England, Jonny Wilkinson, Toulouse and physicality

first_img“New Zealand are ranked No 1 and they showed why last month,” Booth continues. “They don’t drive that much but their pick-and-go is very direct and strong, so they have the ability to change from a power-orientated game to an open-field game.For England the two most physical contests were against Samoa and South Africa, and there is still no substitute for physicality. Like London Irish at Northampton, we came second in the contest physically and as a result, no matter how quick you’re trying to play, you’re then unlikely to win. That is what physicality does to you.We know England have got good physicality by the way they defended in the first 20 minutes against South Africa. But it’s about many things, including focus, mental fatigue and concentration. Philosophies are all well and good but ultimately rugby is a physical contest, it’s me against you.Lawes and Dan Cole were excellent and while England don’t need to discover another group of young players, as I think this group is good enough, don’t forget they have guys like Riki Flutey and Jonny Wilkinson, although Toby Flood has surpassed him by some distance, coming back into the squad. France went for depth at all costs, introducing more and more new players rather than clarity at the top. I don’t think England need to do that ten months from the next World Cup.”Click here to read 30 Minutes with Dylan Hartley London Irish head coach and former England Saxons coach Toby Booth gives Rugby World his England verdict following the autumn Tests.“I know some fans will have doubted England after their defeat at the end of November, but I’d say now is the time to keep the faith in what Martin Johnson, his coaches and the players are doing. The biggest lesson we learnt from the autumn Tests was that successful teams need a clear philosophy and must then play it. From an England point of view, everyone should now be clear about how they’re trying to play the game, something that some would argue wasn’t necessarily the case before.Last month it was more ball in hand-orientated, especially running from deep, irrespective of the lines on the pitch. If it was on to run, they went, and tried to stretch the defence. They also tried to keep a lot more tempo and pace in the game and they brought dynamism, which is the way I believe the game should be played.It’s now a matter of honing that game plan and bringing in players who can excel within it. You can’t keep throwing the bath water out every time as that just leads to a dilution of potential. I look at the Toulouse model. Toulouse haven’t changed the way they play in 20 years and they’re still one of the most successful sides in Europe.It takes time to get everyone up to the true clarity and precision of the system, but if that is what England want to do, they need to build on it and not keep starting again. Let’s try and evolve from where we are now and move on, rather than have a look at a different way of playing.England have some powerful runners in Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes and Chris Ashton. They have some dynamic forwards who give them go-forward. The best thing about November was the way they were able to inflict that tempo on Australia, who are probably the quickest team in world rugby. It just shows you can dictate tempo to them.”Click here to see Chris Ashton’s stunning try against Australia at Twickenhamcenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

England’s double standards

first_img England convert: Shontayne Hape played league for New Zealand but has opted to wear the red rose in unionBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorTHE RFU have vowed that after the 2011 World Cup they will only pick players for England that are playing in England. But while they are demanding the players’ loyalty, they aren’t offering the same in return.It’s easy to see why the RFU want their players in the Aviva Premiership – they have a deal with the top-flight clubs that allows them access to those players pretty much as often as they want. But while they want their internationals and future internationals to turn down big-money offers to move to France to play in the salary cap-limited Premiership, are they giving the players the same commitment in return?Powerful prospect: Quins centre Jordan Turner-HallDylan Hartley, Riki Flutey and Shontayne Hape all hail from New Zealand, Matt Stevens is a South African while the latest man to declare his intention to don the white shirt – Leicester No 8 Thomas Waldrom – is a Kiwi with an English grandmother.If England are going to continue to favour parachuting in players from overseas for short-term gains rather than developing home-grown youngsters, why should those talented young Englishmen turn down the opportunity to set themselves up for life post-rugby with bigger pay cheques in France?Let’s take centre as an example. Dominic Waldouck has long been earmarked for full England honours, has come up through the age groups and has steadily improved at Wasps. Harlequins’ Jordan Turner-Hall and George Lowe are another two exciting prospects at centre. All three are home-grown and, in fact, Waldouck and Turner-Hall have both been involved with the senior England squad without winning a cap. TAGS: Wasps Test hopeful: Thomas Waldrom has an English grandmotherInstead one player who turned out for New Zealand in rugby league internationals – Hape – and another who was never deemed good enough for the All Blacks – Flutey – have been preferred in the England midfield.I’m not denying that they’re good players, but what message does it send out to today’s youngsters if those who take pride in wearing the red rose in their teenage years and work hard for their club then find their passage to the England team blocked by players born overseas.The case of Waldrom is even more telling about attitudes to New Zealanders. As soon as the news broke about his English grandmother, people were talking about him displacing Nick Easter in the England No 8 shirt. Yes, he’s played well for Leicester this season and could excel in international rugby, but this is a player brushed aside by the All Blacks and should we be so excited about someone in his 30s who has far from a long future left in the game. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the short term his being capped could work well for England, but long term the national team could suffer. Young No 8s being passed over might look for a big overseas club deal thinking their Test prospects are limited. Players will get sick of biding their time if they continue to see foreigners gaining honours.If England want their new policy to work post-RWC 2011, they need to start showing home-grown players the same loyalty that they are asking for. Short-term gains can equal long-term pains.last_img read more

Wales defeat will sting but England should take heart

first_imgBut the ace in the pack was Owen Farrell. Patently, Farrell has ice in his veins. The young Saracen flourished moving inside to fly-half. One over eager chip kick aside, his game management, passing and also his defence were of the highest order. After three rounds, it is clear is that now England have their best team, Ashton perhaps aside. What they must do is stick with it and let it grow, through each gritty victory and agonising loss. Indeed, another win in this Six Nations would surpass many expectations.Follow Ben Coles on Twitter @bencolesTRB Tuilagi’s progress is halted by Wales By Ben Coles FIRST things first; what an outstanding test match. The word brutal is commonly associated with international rugby, but rarely has it been showcased more viscerally than when the two sides met at Twickenham on Saturday. The winces and shudders from the crowd were testament to hugely combative displays from both England and Wales.There lies the essence of a great Test match; the ability to openly respect the opposition’s excellence without malice or gritted teeth. No fan, English or Welsh, could argue that both teams had not given their all for the shirt. For that reason alone, England should take heart from their performance.Before kick-off, it was clear to me that the result did not matter for England as long as they performed and showed a marked improvement on their last match. Even though they lost, this was comfortably their best performance to date under Stuart Lancaster. They led for a substantial portion of the game, coming within a whisker of perhaps ending it as a draw, against a side in outstanding form who reached the Rugby World Cup semi-finals last year. There is no shame in that.Corbisiero had a tough time v Adam JonesTo clear up the negatives, England’s main areas of concern were the scrum and the breakdown. Despite strong performances against Euan Murray and Martin Castrogiovanni, Alex Corbisiero struggled against the Lions prop Adam Jones. The first real dark afternoon in his international scrummaging career, however it is an experience he should learn from rather than forget. Meanwhile on the deck, England had few answers to Dan Lydiate and Sam Warburton, either through matching their prowess at getting over the ball when in attack, or of developing ways to combat their skill by committing more bodies to the ruck. A testament to Warburton’s considerable skill, England found themselves pinged for holding on numerous occasions when beginning to build momentum.No team will go a whole match without conceding a penalty at the breakdown, not even Wales, but there are ways to reduce the impact and number of offences. In addition, Chris Ashton was out of sorts on the left wing, refusing to take on the Welsh defence on the outside and persistently cutting in to no effect. So important to England thus far in his career, Charlie Sharples should be given a run in Paris.Both areas will be scrutinised before France, but England should be emboldened with many aspects of Saturday’s match. Their new midfield combination defended forcefully, and had it not been for a wonder tackle from Warburton (in all honesty, the man is superhuman), Manu Tuilagi would have scored on his international return.Farrell has handled expectations well so far Cutting Tom Palmer earlier this week appeared a bizarre and risky move given the proficiency of England’s lineout so far in the tournament, yet Geoff Parling was brilliant in the skies. Mouritz Botha looks every inch an international rugby player, his red scrum cap blurring from one colossal tackle to hitting rucks at pace. Ben ‘The Bus’ Morgan also handled his first start well, by making in-roads against his Celtic friends. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS not for featured last_img read more

Rugby Rant: Tip tackle rulings inconsistent

first_imgInconsistency should not be allowed to reign.This was published in the March 2013 edition of Rugby World. Click here to see what’s in the current issue. In this incident it was interpreted that in lifting and completing the tackle, despite the angle of the hit and the manner in which the Argentine was safely reacquainted with the turf, Varndell was guilty. He earned himself a yellow card without dropping or driving anyone.Recent IRB directives ask that punishments pertaining to law 10.4 (j) – ‘Lifting a player from the ground and either dropping or driving that player’s head and/or upper body into the ground whilst the player’s feet are off the ground’ – should be heartily enforced.So far this season this has meant that young players like Toulouse’s Christopher Tolofua and Cardiff Blues’ Lloyd Williams have had the book thrown at them for their reckless tackling in the Heineken Cup. This is fair enough, but it’s hardly in keeping with the current trend.Conservatism means an Aviva referee can brandish yellow for fear of disobeying a directive, while a citing panel can get together and agree that no one has earned a spell in the cooler for introducing someone’s head to the dirt.The directive has created a monster. Not the kind of large, looming monster that has everyone in Europe clamouring for change. It’s the kind of tiny, insidious monster that could whisper in an official’s ear, convincing them that the next yellow should come out for something innocuous. By Alan DymockWITH CARDS flying as readily as they will on Valentine’s Day, the issue of officials and their interpretation of the ‘tip tackle’ is raising more than a few hackles.In a Premiership game at Worcester, Leicester’s Toby Flood was cited for upending Andy Goode. After a two-hour hearing five days later, Flood was cleared of trying to spear his opponent into the ground by virtue of a plea that a team-mate had joined in to drive Goode to the floor, just as Flood was falling.A flimsy excuse meant the England fly-half was rendered inculpable.Yet the outcome set a dangerous precedent, because Flood could have seriously injured a fellow professional.Within a couple of days of this, Wasps wing Tom Varndell had been sent to the sidelines by referee Andrew Small after a ‘tip’ on Bath and Pumas winger Horacio Agulla.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

So will winger Adrien Planté, who moved from Perpignan to Racing Metro this month, while 21-year-old second-row Sébastien Vahaamahina makes only his second start for his country.On the bench Saint-Andre has chosen Alexandre Flanquart, the 23-year-old Stade Francais lock, and Daniel Kotze, the South-African born Clermont prop. Both are uncapped, unlike Jean-Marc Doussain, the Toulouse scrum-half of whom great things are expected. Doussain has five minutes of international rugby under his belt, the 22-year-old having come on during the dying stages of the 2011 World Cup final against the All Blacks.Doussain was on the losing side on that occasion, and the form book suggests he won’t be tasting victory on Saturday. But in the long term, France stand to win from their tour to New Zealand while the home nations’ finest are gallivanting across Australia.New Zealand v France, Saturday 8 June, 8.35am (BST), Auckland. Live on Sky Sports 2  Last meeting: France and New Zealand will face each other for the first time since the 2011 World Cup finalBy Gavin MortimerHERE’S A curious stat for you. In the professional age, every Six Nations championship following a Lions tour has been won by the French. In 1998 they clinched the Grand Slam while the home nations were still basking in the glory of beating the Springboks the previous summer; four years later France repeated the feat nine months after the Lions trip Down Under. A clean sweep eluded Les Bleus in 2006 – a shock 20-16 defeat to Scotland on the opening weekend their only reverse in winning the title) but in 2010 France had another Grand Slam to celebrate.Call up: Corbisiero is flying to Oz from ArgentinaIt could all be a coincidence, or it could be point to the fact that France, more than any other Six Nations side, reaps the benefit from a Lions tour. For fun though a Lions tour is, it has a detrimental effect on the fortunes of the four nations involved. True, Scotland are in South Africa with an almost full-strength squad, but Wales have taken a B team to Japan and likewise Ireland to North America. Stuart Lancaster’s England are getting a more meaningful test in Argentina, even without eight of their number, but the call-up of prop Alex Corbisiero can’t have down well with the English. Sure, Lancaster made all the right noises, saying “all the England players and management couldn’t be more pleased for him to get this opportunity…after he missed the Six Nations through injury”.But can Lancaster really have been cock-a-hoop at the call-up? When fit, Corbisiero is arguably the best prop in England, a player vital to Lancaster’s 2015 World Cup plans. A couple of brutal Tests in Argentina would have been an important step in Corbisiero’s rehabilitation after six months out of international rugby with a knee injury; instead, he’s off to Oz to do what exactly? Play in a midweek match here or there, against a front row not fit to clean the boots of the average Argentine tight forward.There’s a lot of drivel talked about the Lions, about how it’s the pinnacle of any British or Irish player’s career. Maybe for an Irishman or Scotsman, who realistically will never get their hands on the World Cup, but for an Englishman? Trevor Woodman was never a Lion, but the England prop did win the World Cup in 2003. If Corbisiero was given the choice of playing a Lions Test against the Wallabies or lifting the Webb Ellis Cup in 2015, I wonder which he would choose.But back to the French, who are just about to play the first of three Tests against the All Blacks. The last time France toured New Zealand was the summer of 2009, when the Lions were losing to South Africa, and they stunned their hosts by winning the first Test 27-22. They nearly clinched the two-Test series the following week in Wellington, going down 14-10 in galeforce conditions.It was a tour that made the names of a several young Frenchmen – Louis Picamoles, Maxime Medard, Mathieu Bastareaud, Fulgence Ouedraogo and Francois Trinh-Duc – players who would go on to win the Grand Slam for France the following year and take them to the World Cup final in 2011.

Rugby Rant: Keep the Six Nations free-to-air

first_img Granted, he was being mischievous, as is his right as financial custodian of the RBS 6 Nations, but CEO John Feehan blasted open a hornet’s nest with a double-barrel shotgun when he intimated he’d be open to subscription TV offers when the championship’s existing deal with the BBC comes to an end, in 2017.Now call me a traditionalist but in my book there is a certain moral duty to keep the Six Nations on terrestrial television for the betterment of the game. Elite-level rugby should be available to inspire all.If we are to truly push the game beyond its traditional heartlands, youngsters from all social backgrounds should be able to watch superstars like Leigh Halfpenny, Chris Robshaw, Stuart Hogg, Paul O’Connell and Thierry Dusautoir cutting a dash on the field, with packed-out crowds providing a colourful backdrop. Free-to-air allows folk of all ages to marvel at the jewel in the northern hemisphere rugby crown over seven weeks, immersing themselves in the tribal, visceral drama that unfolds before them.

Compare that to the 0.9m Sky Sports audience for the game between England and New Zealand in November and you have a clear indication of the gulf in the number of ‘eyeballs’ watching the action. Terrestrial coverage puts the game on the front and back pages – note how much attention George North’s concussion garnered and the positive progress that followed it.There’s also the money aspect; while the organisation would arguably earn more if Sky Sports and BT Sport entered the bidding, they’re not exactly scrabbling behind the sofa for coppers, with almost £1.3bn in revenues taken over a World Cup cycle. The olive branch is that, as a Category B sporting event, games would have to be shown on terrestrial TV on a time delay but seriously, who could resist peeking on social media, badgering a friend or heading for the pub for a live Six Nations fix?

World Cup 2015: Wales 6-15 Australia

first_img TAGS: Highlight The first-half was cagey with penalties being trades by both sides, before Dan Biggar had his first miss of the tournament late on in the half to leave the Wallabies, who had gained the ascendancy in the latter stages, 9-6 up at the break, after three Bernard Foley penalties. As Wales chased the game in the second-half, they couldn’t turn their possession into points, even when the Wallabies were down to 13-men. It was a testament to Australia’s water-tight defence that they held out – it was the defence of potential world champions.What’s hotAustralia organisation when down to 13 menThe pressure on Australia when they were down to 13 men was immense but their committment, defensive organisation and ultimately heart took the breath away. Time after time in the second half between 55 and 70 minutes, Wales continually hammered at the Wallaby line, choosing lineouts and five-metre scrums, but they couldn’t find a way through the mass of green and gold defenders. Even when they crossed the whitewash desperate Wallaby defencers held them Wales attackers up.Under the cosh: Australia were down to 13 men at one point but held outWallaby scrum continues to purrWhatever Mario Ledesma is being paid, he needs be politely asking for it to be doubled. So long derided for folding when the pressure came on, the Wallaby pack yet again showed how destructive they could be, earning several scrum penalties to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Their ‘bajada’ or explosive eight-man shove, inspired by the Pumas, has been a feature of this tournament and Scotland, who were given a torrid time by Samoa will be wary come scrum-time.Gareth DaviesWhen Rhys Webb was stretchered off the field against Italy in the warm-ups, the nation mourned but Gareth Davies, the Scarlets scrum-half has comfortably slipped into his shirt. He was agressive – fighting to get the ball back off the much larger Stephen Moore; sharp – consistently sniping around the fringes and skilful; showing deft hands as he looked to put players into space. With four tries in four games, he’s been one of the successes of Wales’ World Cup campaign.Constant threat: Gareth Davies is growing into the role at No 9Sean McMahonHe lasted 48 minutes but showed their Wallaby No 7 jersey is in safe hands if Pocock and Michael Hooper are unavailable. Early on a shuddering hit on Dan Biggar was felt in the stands. The young Melbourne Rebel more than competed with two Lions backrows, Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric. His strength over the ball and ball-carrying ensures that we’ll be seeing far more of the 21-year-old in the coming years.What’s notWelsh tactics dealing with a numerical advantageFor seven minutes, the Wallabies were down to 13 men, and they played for 15 minutes a man down. Wales kept it tight and tried take Australia on in the tight exchanges. Sam Warburton, sensing Australia were vulnerable, chose on several occasions to take attacking lineouts, or scrums. With extra numbers, however, they failed to use width and spread it out to the flanks where they had a numerical advantage. Perhaps they didn’t trust their ability to create out wide but as Warren Gatland admitted it was something they would be looking at closely ahead of the South Africa game.Under pressure: Wales put Australia under pressure but couldn’t break them downWelsh indiscipline in the first halfThere were a few occasions in the latter stages of the first-half when Wales were on the back foot. Their backrow were penalised twice for transgressing outside the 22 when the tryline was not under threat, giving away six points. First with Justin Tipuric pinged for some illegal footwork at the breakdown 35 metres out and secondly, a Taulupe Faletau rogue boot, 30 metres out. Craig Joubert warned them that the next time, it would be yellow card. They proved expensive points.Theatre: Twickenham was packed for a huge battle between Wales and AustraliaStats Australia again defeat Wales in a compelling encounter in which their defence managed to keep out Warren Gatland’s men when down to 13 men Wales ran 291 metres to Australia’s 212, and had 60 per cent possession to Australia’s 40Australia beat 15 defenders compared to Wales’ 10, both sides had four line-breaksThe game’s top carrier was Israel Folau with 64 metres carried.

World Club 10s: Western Force win in Mauritius

first_img Rugby in paradiseRanked 86th in the world – nestled comfortably between Niue Islands and the Bahamas – it’s understandable if rugby isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the nation of Mauritius.The small island in the Indian Ocean did, however, play host to the World Club 10s this year and put on a fabulous show for locals, tourists and players alike. It was the second edition of the tournament following its inaugural event in Singapore back in 2014, having taken a sabbatical in 2015 due to the all-encompassing Rugby World Cup.Water sport: The Sharks train in a suitably idyllic Mauritian setting. (Photo: Howard Cleland)The mantra of ‘rugby in paradise’ was not just some throwaway promotional slogan from the organisers of the competition, it permeated every level of the event. From luxurious hotels with expansive vistas of white sand beaches to the bustling and energising capital city of Port Louis, Mauritius delivered a totally unique rugby event, blending local culture with all the thrills and spills you would expect of a weekend at a sevens tournament.Jon Phelps, founder of Carinat Sports Marketing, the company charged with organising the event, confirmed that the tournament will be played in Mauritius for the next three years and that they hope to grow the event over that time period.“This year was about let’s get the building blocks, get the pro teams to come, enjoy it and see the value in it for their own brands as well.”Phelps also confirmed that they would likely try to consolidate the tournament at the size of eight pro teams for 2017, but that expansion was definitely their long-term goal. For now, Phelps’ sights are set on increasing the amount of amateur teams also involved in the competition and he hopes to increase the number of satellite tournaments running concurrently with the pro tournament, with men’s, women’s and touch competitions for teams from all over the world set to be part of the 2017 event.The weekend of rugby takes place at Anjalay Stadium, an 18,000 capacity venue that usually plays host to the Mauritian national football team. With plenty of South African and French expats, not to mention a very healthy amount of tourists from places such as the UK and Australia, there is a hope that over the coming years the event will be able to pack out the arena, with increased interest from locals also chief amongst the organisers’ ambitions.Rainbow warriors: Euskadi at the Anjalay Stadium. (Photo: Howard Cleland/Christiaan Kotze/SASPA)That desire to see the sport grow in Mauritius was echoed by Kevin Venkiah, the president of Mauritius Rugby Union, who compared the country’s potential to that of Fiji.“We have 1.2 million people. Look at Fiji (880k population). All we are missing is that culture. This tournament will help us a lot.“We want the Indian Ocean to make a very good championship. The problem we have in Mauritius is that we have only five clubs. We want to go to Seychelles, Madagascar and then, maybe, the Currie Cup. I don’t know but this is my wish.”The potential is clear to see in Mauritius and the skill levels exhibited by the U12, U14 and U16 teams who played during the intervals between the pro teams’ matches, were particularly impressive.The Sharks, who were one of the eight teams competing for the trophy, took the time out of their schedule to go and visit a local school, College Technique Saint Gabriel, in the build-up to the tournament. The school teaches trades such as car maintenance and cookery to underprivileged children, many of whom have had no education or have been left homeless, with the goal of finding them work once they are old enough.After the Sharks had been introduced to the students, they began running through training drills with the youngsters and the enthusiasm from the kids for the sport was palpable. Whilst football may be Mauritius’ national sport, there is a clear love for rugby in the country when its people are exposed to it.England’s finest: Saracens on the attack against Africa Pacific Dragons. (Photo: Howard Cleland)Western Force conquer the World Club 10sMoving onto the tournament and the Sharks were joined by Western Force, Brumbies, Saracens, Toulon, Africa Pacific Dragons, Euskadi and the Italian All-Stars in Mauritius, with the eight teams separated into two pools of four. The first day was spent playing inter-pool matches to determine seeding, before the teams locked horns for the trophy on finals day.There was definitely a developmental approach from a number of teams, notably Saracens and Toulon, who left the majority of their senior players at home. Mike Ellery was the most notable inclusion for Saracens, whilst Toulon’s Anthony Meric was the most recognisable player for the side from the Côte d’Azur. Sharks and Force both brought multiple players with Super Rugby experience but were mainly reliant on youngsters.Euskadi, a composite team from the Basque region, had a handful of Top 14 players, whilst the Italian All-Stars also had a few players plying their trade in higher European leagues. Africa Pacific Dragons were one of the more eye-catching teams, not only fielding a coaching team including Heyneke Meyer, Hale T-Pole and Will Genia, but also picking ex-All Black Jimmy Cowan, former Newport Gwent Dragon Tonderai Chavhanga and Sisa Koyamaibole.Making a point: APD’s star-studded coaching team. (Photo: Howard Cleland/Christiaan Kotze/SASPA)The Brumbies were undoubtedly the big draw, however, naming a team rich with Super Rugby experience, including Jarrad Butler, Aidan Toua and Ruan Smith to list but a few. Professional players from across the globe descended on the small island of Mauritius to play in the second World Club 10s tournament. Alex Shaw went along to report for Rugby World. TAGS: Saracens The Force is strong: Western Force show off their trophy. (Photo Howard Cleland/Christiaan Kotze/SASPA) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Australian side’s star-studded squad went well on day one, emerging undefeated from their pool of Force, Italian All-Stars and Toulon and looked in fine shape to keep up their challenge on finals day. Similarly, Saracens saw off Sharks, APD and Euskadi in Pool B and also ended the first day undefeated.Pool A champions, the Brumbies, had a date with Euskadi in the quarter-finals, whilst Pool B toppers Saracens had a meeting with the Italian All-Stars. Western Force were set to meet APD and the Sharks and Toulon would wrap things up in the fourth quarter-final.Sunday started as expected, with the Brumbies keeping up their rich vein of form, trouncing Euskadi, 43-5, but a shock came when Saracens, who had been so effective the previous day, were beaten 17-0 by a resurgent Italian All-Stars side. The Force (12-7) and Sharks (26-7) also booked their places in the Cup competition with solid wins.Dragon in flight: The Sharks try to stop the Dragons, who were the Bowl winners. (Photo: Howard Cleland)Saracens’ misery continued after dropping into the Bowl competition, as they were shredded 33-7 by APD and the English champions dropped into the Shield, where they were joined by Euskadi, who were beaten by fellow French side Toulon, 24-7.Force made the most of the Italians upsetting Saracens earlier in the day and comfortably dispatched the Europeans, 29-0, to book their place in the Cup final. The Brumbies took on the Sharks for the chance to face Force in the final and snuck a narrow 7-5 victory, with both teams playing at an intensity that will have done the Super Rugby aspirants in both squads a world of good.After going undefeated on the first day and looking like a contender for the Cup, Saracens finally reversed their downward trend, beating Euskadi 43-0 in the Shield final, a scoreline that would be repeated shortly after when APD beat Toulon in the Bowl final. The Sharks took home the Plate, defeating the Italian All-Stars, 26-7.The Cup final, an all-Australian affair, was the tensest game of the entire weekend. Neither team wanted to make the mistake which would allow the opposition to score but moments of magic from Michael Ruru proved to be the difference as Force did just enough to record a 7-0 victory and were able to lift the trophy that everyone had predicted would go to the Brumbies.Ruru went on to be named the official player of the tournament and along with fellow Force standouts Kane Koteka and Tom Sexton, did his rugby career no harm at all with a stellar showing in Mauritius.Top man: Michael Ruru on the attack for Western Force v The Brumbies. (Photo: Howard Cleland)What they said…Heyneke Meyer, Africa Pacific Dragons coach – “It’s great to be back in rugby.”Ruan Smith, Brumbies prop – “It’s [10s rugby] great for developing skill sets and breakdown work, with teams not committing more than one or two players. Tight five players don’t often get the opportunity to do likewise in sevens.”Henry Taylor, Saracens scrum-half and captain – “This is definitely a great opportunity to develop and press claims for more rugby next season, but we realise there is an expectation on us, representing Saracens.”AB Zondagh, Sharks coach – “It was gutting to lose the semi-final but I’m happy with the effort and performances of our youngsters. We want to come back next year. We’ve definitely learned a lot from this year.”Kane Koteka, Western Force flanker and captain – “We represent those boys back home and I think we’ve done them proud. I think we can use this as a springboard to improve our Super Rugby season.”Team of the tournament1. Paul Taupai, Saracens2. Tom Sexton, Western Force3. Ruan Smith, Brumbies4.

Five things we learnt from France’s win over Samoa

first_imgOver time: Charles Ollivon scores a try in the big win over Samoa. Photo: Getty ImagesCharles Ollivon replaced Loann Goujon early on and showed why he’s rated so highly in Toulon. Powerful and athletic, the 6ft 5in Ollivon is a strong ball-carrying loose forward, but he’s no turnover specialist. Nor is Damien Chouly, fit again after missing the Samoa match, while Kevin Gourdon and Kélian Galletier play more like opensides, but with just four caps between them they’re still learning about the rigours of Test rugby. That might mean a recall for Wenceslas Lauret, the flanker who played in all of last season’s Six Nations matches but lost his place to Gourdon when he missed the summer tour to Argentina because he was helping Racing 92 win the Top 14 title.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. France began their November with an impressive 52-8 defeat of Samoa, the first time they’ve hit a half-century of points since 2009. Now come the real Tests, with Australia and New Zealand visiting Paris on successive Saturdays. Gavin Mortimer reviews and previews…Wes wowsOne of the saddest sights during Philippe Saint-Andre’s reign as France coach was Wesley Fofana. The most gifted French threequarter of his generation was never able to reproduce his club form under PSA, not just because of the sterile, power-based game championed by the coach, but also because in four years he went through a succession of midfield partners – Rougerie, Fritz, Bastareaud, Mermoz and Fickou. For a season Fofana was even shunted out onto the wing, a mistake Guy Noves made last season for a couple of Six Nations matches.Middle man: Wesley Fofana finds a hole in Samoa’s defence. Photo: Getty ImagesThankfully he’s now back where he belongs, and with the powerful Remi Lamerat now alongside Fofana, France may have found the centre pairing to take them to the 2019 World Cup. Though Fofana stole the headlines with his superb creative display against Samoa, his understanding with Lamerat, and the ability to read each other’s games, was crucial.Hat-trick heroThe Fiji-born Virimi Vakatawa showed the full range of his talents in scoring a hat-trick of tries against Samoa. For his first score he showed neat footwork to step inside his markers, for his second he outpaced the cover and for the third he powered through his tackler.Three-piece sweet: Virimi Vakatawa scores his third try against Samoa. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat makes it one of the more remarkable of Test-match triples is that Vakatawa last played a game of 15s in March – in the Six Nations against England. He spent the summer playing sevens for France, and since September he has been based permanently at the French training centre at Marcoussis as he is contracted by the FFR and not a club. Bigger challenges lie ahead for Vakatawa but, as he showed against Samoa, he is a finisher par excellence.Trouble at ten Happy day: Virimi Vakatawa and his France team-mates celebrate. Photo: Getty Images LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img France won big against Samoa but do they need to up their game against Australia this week? A broken forearm suffered early in the second half has sidelined Francois Trinh-Duc until the new year. It’s also given Guy Noves a major headache. The man who replaced Trinh-Duc at fly-half, Jean-Marc Doussain, played well, but it was an armchair ride thanks to the dominance of his pack. The dilemma for Noves is to decide whether to keep faith with Doussain, or pick the man he called up on Monday – Camille Lopez.In form: Will Camille Lopez get a shot in the France No 10 jersey? Photo: Getty ImagesHe’s been in fine form for Clermont this season, having slimmed down in the summer and strengthened his kicking game under the guidance of Xavier Sadourny. Doussain has never started a Test match at fly-half and has suffered for several seasons from the strange French belief that nine and ten are more or less interchangeable. Lopez is an exception in this regard, a pure fly-half, and picking him would seem logical given that the likely centre pairing against Australia will be Clermont team-mates Wesley Fofana and Remi Lamerat with another Jaunard, Scott Spedding, at full-back.Kicking conundrumThe general consensus among the French press was that the one back who didn’t shine was scrum-half Maxime Machenaud. Calls are growing for the inclusion of the young and exciting Bordeaux No 9 Baptiste Serin, who in the eyes of many is a more classically French scrum-half. Machenaud plays the game more like a home nations scrum-half, less flashy and more subservient to his fly-half. But dropping Machenaud would mean handing the kicking duties to one of Serin, Doussain or Lopez, all of whom are inexperienced goalkickers at international level.New nine: There are calls for Bordeaux scrum-half Baptiste Serin to start. Photo: Getty ImagesBack-row battleThis is crucial to any Test match but in Paris on Saturday night it could decide the outcome. France have veteran Louis Picamoles at No 8, their one world-class forward, but on the flanks they cede much to the Wallaby pair of Michael Hooper and David Pocock in experience and turnover ability.last_img read more

Secret Player: “Most specialist coaches are shadowy figures”

first_img There are sports, football and basketball for example, whose global popularity lies partly in their intrinsic simplicity.Rugby is not one of those sports. To fully understand what is going on, why the referee is blowing his whistle so often, what all the pudgy guys traipsing from melee to pile-up to rammy are actually doing, requires a cultish, anorak-like knowledge.Witness the endless debate following Romain Poite’s innovative interpretation of Laws 11.6 and 11.7 in the final Lions Test. Lord Denning would struggle to pick a route through rugby’s Byzantine statute book, so it is little wonder the rest of us (and most of the TV commentators especially) tend to struggle.For many positions on the pitch, actually playing the game is equally as complicated. Some guys get it easy – an openside who charges about in a visible way, makes his tackles and wins a couple of turnovers can expect to be lauded. But because rugby will never go down the NFL path towards over-specialisation, there are some poor sods in the team who, in amongst the chaos and drudgery, are expected to pause now and again and perform closed skills which bear almost no relation to the rest of the game. Kickers and hookers have it worst, and of course the credit for getting it right is dwarfed by the scorn faced when a ball goes astray (see Jamie George in that same Lions match).Which is where the specialist coaches come in. The self-appointed gurus. Some of these are high profile – Dave Alred will always be associated with Jonny Wilkinson and England’s 2003 success, for example – but most are shadowy figures, forever hunkered over their laptops in the analysis room.The players in the pressurised posts are usually delighted for extra help as, unlike the openside, whose key performance indicators are more nuanced (ie, open to fudging), for a hooker or a kicker it’s a case of make or miss. Miss too often and you could be hitting the bricks, with only your P45 for company. FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREPlayers often develop an unusually close working relationship with their specialist coach. As the strains increase, they become a source of pastoral care as much as a technical guide, building confidence in an effort to remove any mental obstacles which might prevent their hours of work with a tennis racket on a pole being smoothly transferred to the pitch.When I started out, it was a novelty to even have a dedicated defence coach. Up till that point we had to use our own common sense – stand in a line across the pitch and tackle the man with the ball. Now, your working week is split between lineout, breakdown, attack, skills coaches… and it is getting more niche. Defensive lineout coach. Really? There is a tragicomic BBC4 documentary in there somewhere: “What does a defensive lineout coach do all day?”, perhaps.The answer, in practical terms, is not all that much. Most of any coach’s time these days is spent on the computer, searching for semi-imagined traits, tells in the opposition and in their players. On ‘the paddock’, there are only so many useable hours and I have heard one coach say, almost proudly, that he is lucky if he gets ten minutes a week to put his ideas into practice. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Bag men: The England squad go through some drills center_img Still, there are careers to be had for former players with a passion for detail. Whereas in the past some ex-pros saw coaching jobs as a full-on gravy train, nowadays there is true accountability. Fifteen years ago the week before a Test seemed to serve as little more than a boozy jolly for former players on the staff. It was as if they were calling in some debt, so determined did they seem to take the mickey.Now, when a peer moves into such a job, I essentially lose a friend. Twelve-hour days are the norm for any coach in 2017, even those patrolling the most esoteric parts of the game. Leisurely brunches after a quick gym session are a distant memory for the poor dears.Though I’m still not sure what they do for a day!

60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1990s

first_imgJacob Whitehead runs through the top ten international tries from the Nineties Collapse Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten Test… 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1960s Jacob Whitehead runs through the top ten Test… Setting off down a tight lineout blindside, the sprite-like nine beat six English defenders before anyone had quite gathered what was going on. Van der Westhuizen’s chip never gets above head-height, but the deliberateness of this deft delicacy sees him scoop up the ball on the bounce and shrug off Mike Catt (poor man) to cement a 24-14 Springbok win.John Bentley (British & Irish Lions) v Gauteng, 1997 Matt Dawson’s famous dummy was the most important try on the 1997 Lions tour, but part-time winger, part-time comedian John Bentley was the top try-scorer.None was better than this swerving 70-metre effort against the Gauteng Lions, which would propel him towards a starting berth in the second and third Tests.The last two swerves seem more aesthetic than pragmatic, but they served as the exclamation mark on the try that, more than any other, set the Lions on their way to a Test series victory.Christian Cullen (New Zealand) v Australia, 1997 Christian Cullen’s pace was remarkable, not the least because for the duration of the Nineties he wore shirts so baggy that they must have felt like a mini parachute. The best of a stellar selection came against Australia in 1997, as part of a first-half onslaught that saw the All Blacks go 36-0 up.Zinzan Brooke does his best Finn Russell impression with a long miss-pass, which Cullen steams onto at top speed. Barely even noticing tacklers as he ghosts past them, he instead focuses on tormenting full-back Stephen Larkham.Each sway of Cullen’s hips forces Larkham to turn, but each time he does, you get the feeling that he cannot even see the All Black, never mind tackle him.Jonah Lomu (New Zealand) v France, 1999 There was always going to be more than one Jonah Lomu try on this list, wasn’t there? The RWC 1999 semi-final will always be best known for France’s 43-31 comeback win, but these memories should not come at the cost of Lomu’s barnstorming first-half score.There’s a famous picture of Maradona where six Belgian defenders stand facing him, desperately trying to stop the little maestro. Lomu wasn’t so little, but the result was the same: an entire defence can’t stop genius.Five defenders lay their hands on Lomu, he disappears into an ocean of blue shirts, but he somehow re-emerges on the other side, still clasping the ball, not knowing what would come before the 80 minutes were up. 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1970s A brilliant pass, but one equally made by the intelligence of Gavin Hastings’s run, beginning moments before Townsend made his first cut. He was flying as he caught the ball and only stopped underneath the posts to ensure the conversion would take Scotland to a 23-21 victory.FIND OUT WHAT’S INSIDE RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE’S 60TH ANNIVERSARY EDITIONJonah Lomu (New Zealand) v England, 1995 There are many emotions you may feel while watching a rugby match. Excitement, despair and even unconditional love are common. But pity is not. Pity is foreign to rugby – except for one summer afternoon during the RWC 1995 quarter-finals.Any observer who has ever anticipated physical pain, maybe when bathing a wound in saltwater or hearing the whirr of a tattoo gun, will pity the unfortunate Mike Catt here.Jonah Lomu broke into cult icon status as he broke Catt’s body, but people forget the elegance with which he swerved around the covering Rory Underwood and Will Carling first.Kiwi commentator Keith Quinn summarised the moment pretty well: “Lomu… oh… oh!” Oh, and he’d go on to score another three tries in the match.Joost van der Westhuizen (South Africa) v England, 1995The Springboks and 1995 go together like butter and toast, props and scrummaging. Their most famous try was Pieter Hendriks’s opener against Australia, the most famous moment that image of Nelson Mandela and Francois Pienaar, but their best try came five months later at Twickenham (see 1:20 on the video).Many pundits have Gareth Edwards and Joost van der Westhuizen as the greatest scrum-halves of all time, so it seems fitting here that the South African reimagines Edwards’s famous 1972 score against Scotland (as seen in our top ten tries of the 1970s).MORE GREAT TRIES… Can’t get to the shops?

There was Jonah Lomu, Christian Cullen and Jeff Wilson – and that’s only thinking about New Zealand. Picking only ten scores was no easy task, but keep reading for one-man wrecking balls, last-minute heartbreakers and tries from the end of the world…Serge Blanco (France) v Australia, 1990Serge Blanco made our lowdown of the best tries of the Eighties for sending France to the inaugural World Cup final, but his most sensational individual effort would come three years later.Catching a ball from a wheeling scrum on his own line, Blanco took off like a greyhound being pursued by a pack of chihuahuas. His stride length seems twice that of the Australian defenders, only briefly slowing to dummy the full-back with a characteristically Gallic insouciance.Going coast to coast untouched? Unparalleled.Philippe Saint-Andre (France) v England, 1991 The final game of the 1991 Five Nations saw both France and England gunning for the title. Down on the scoresheet, France needed something special and what is truly memorable about this try is its audacity, so surprising that the camera pulls away as the move begins.Serge Blanco seized the ball from Pierre Berbizier. Drawing the tackle, the peerless full-back shipped on to Jean-Baptiste Lafond, who in turn found Philippe Sella. Four pairs of hands and the ball was still in the shadow of the French posts.Fly-half Didier Camberabero was the true architect of the try, taking the switch pass and kicking the ball over the English defence, before catching it on the full and booting it infield.Philippe Saint-Andre was the lucky recipient, dealing with an awkward bounce to the rapture of a crowd, which sounded more Lyonnais than London.France may have lost the game 21-19, but Saint-Andre has since taken some silverware home: his was awarded the title of greatest Twickenham try at the stadium’s 2009 centenary dinner.Tim Horan (Australia) v New Zealand, 1991 A string of knockout defeats for the Kiwis began in the 1991 World Cup semi-final. New Zealand were the ones dressed in black, but it was David Campese who was the magician (see 2:09 on the video).Michael Lynagh’s chip couldn’t have been more tempting if it was covered in ketchup, but a weaving Campese still seemingly had no route to the try-line.You’d have been forgiven for thinking that Campese had sidestepped himself dizzy, so strange was the sight of him gently lobbing the ball behind his head.The All Black defence were similarly confused, colliding as they watched Tim Horan take the popped pass in his stride to send them home.Jean-Luc Sadourny (France) v New Zealand, 1994 French rugby was to the 1990s what the Dutch football team were to the 1970s – iconic and stylish without ever really winning anything of note.The gloriously named ‘try from the end of the world’ came in New Zealand’s last defeat at Eden Park, where they had allowed France to stay within a score by missing a plethora of kickable penalties. They would be punished in the most theatrical way possible.Attempting to describe the try in the space available could never do it justice. Watch it and feast on the speed, the accuracy and the most unselfish offload ever seen on a rugby pitch.The way New Zealand have been going recently (recently being the last 25 years), it will take similar fireworks to ever break the spell of Eden Park again.Gavin Hastings (Scotland) v France, 1995 Not many passes are so good that they spawn their own nickname – but Gregor Townsend’s ‘Toonie Flip’ is one of them. Scotland were 21-16 down, and desperately looking for their first win in Paris since 1969.It didn’t look likely, as a deep Scottish attacking line seemed well marshalled by the drifting French defence. But the quicksilver Townsend suddenly stepped inside and, despite the attentions of two tacklers, extended his right arm out like a ballerina’s leg to flip the ball inside. 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1980s LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1970s 60 Years of Rugby World: Greatest Tries of the 1960slast_img read more

The best supplements for rugby

first_imgFollow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Creatine is an important energy source for intense bouts of exercise. It can be obtained in meats and fish but not in fruit and vegetables – so vegetarians and vegans may have lower levels of muscle creatine. But stores of muscle creatine can be significantly increased by supplementation.Creatine supplementation needs to be undertaken with appropriate training for maximum benefits. Taken properly, it is likely to significantly enhance strength and power – especially when part of an appropriate training regime.Cost: £14.99Omega 3 (Science in Sport)Sience in Sport Omega 3 capsules We asked nutritionist James Morehen for his top five best supplements for rugby – and he duly obliged with the below list.You can read Morehen’s nutrition advice every month in Rugby World magazine. but for now, take a look at these reccomended products. And remember that when buying supplements, you should alwyas check that the products are cleared by Informed Sport.Big Whey powder (Nutrition X)Nutrition X Big WheyProtein intake stimulates muscle protein synthesis and attenuates muscle protein preakdown. The simple equation is: protein plus resistance training can equal enhanced lean mass, strength, and power.Approximately 0.5g per kg body weight of protein is needed at any ‘meal’ to promote muscle protein synthesis. Whey protein is high in essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids (and hence leucine), and so is ideal to stimulate this.It is advantageous to take whey protein before and after resistance training in order to attain good muscle protein net balance. This is an ideal source of quality whey protein which has proven to aid athletes.Cost: £54.99Creatine (Nutrition X)Nutrition X Creatine Beta-Alanine (Science in Sport)Science in Sport Beta-AlanineBeta-Alanine is a naturally occurring, non-essential beta amino acid.

La Resolución WM015 respaldaba los Enfoques y Criterios de Subvenciones de la junta de la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias para 2014 (que aparecerán en la página web de la UTO el 1 de noviembre). Finalmente, la resolución también instaba a todos los episcopales a obtener y usar diariamente la Caja Azul de la UTO.Las discusiones del Consejo las provocó la renuncia a principios de septiembre de cuatro miembros de la junta directiva de la UTO por lo que para algunos fue el controversial empeño de redactar un memorando de acuerdo entre la UTO y la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, así como unos nuevos estatutos para la histórica organización que según dijo Jefferts Schori tenían por objeto hacer que los procedimientos operativos estuvieran “en conformidad tanto con las leyes federales como las políticas de la DFMS”.Hutchinson dijo durante la conferencia de prensa del mediodía del 17 de octubre que la más reciente controversia era “un poquito de acaloramiento sobre una relación francamente quebrantada, algunos de cuyos [motivos] probablemente datan de décadas, y algunos de los cuales son más recientes”.Él también hizo notar que “no obstante 125 años de un extraordinario ministerio en la Iglesia, la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias como organización nunca se ha definido formalmente como una entidad de la Iglesia Episcopal, y eso ha provocado muchísima confusión en diferentes momentos de su historia y en alguna medida ha contribuido en algo al funcionamiento errático en su relación con otras partes de la Iglesia”.Ahora, sin embargo, le dijo Hutchinson al Consejo, existe la esperanza de “una nueva identidad, una nueva temporada de compañerismo y cooperación”.Él también le dijo al Consejo que un equipo de trabajo de los miembros de la junta directiva de la UTO y de miembros del GAM no tardarían en organizarse para continuar en el empeño de seguir adelante.Hutchinson, que había participado anteriormente este año en la labor de la revisión de los estatutos y del memorando de acuerdo, había convocado una reunión a puertas cerradas el 15 de octubre con Schafer, la presidenta de la junta de la UTO; los recién nombrados miembros de la junta de la UTO: la Rda. Sarah Carver, de la Diócesis de Michigan Oriental y el Rdo. John Tampa, de la Diócesis de Carolina del Norte; así como Margaret (Peg) Cooper, presidenta del Comité de Subvenciones de la UTO, de la Diócesis de Misurí. Los cuatro habían sido invitados al primer día de reuniones del Consejo.Hutchinson dijo al Consejo el 15 de octubre que él solicitaría la sesión a puertas cerradas porque “se trata de crear… un lugar seguro para una conversación muy franca”.Los presentes, además de los miembros del GAM y los miembros invitados de la junta directiva de la UTO, fueron Jefferts Schori; la Rda. Gay Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados; la Rda. Heather Melton, misionera de la UTO; el obispo Stacy Sauls, encargado de operaciones del centro denominacional; Paul Nix, consejero legal del centro denominacional y Sally Johnson, canciller de Jennings.Hutchinson había dicho que él quería crear “un lugar seguro para una conversación muy franca” que sería “descarnadamente sincera donde fuera necesario, [así como] compasiva y hospitalaria”.La Ofrenda Unida de Gracias se creó en 1889 como la Ofrenda Unida de la Rama Auxiliar de Mujeres para la Junta de Misiones y fundamentalmente apoyaba la labor de las misioneras. La UTO posteriormente amplió su énfasis para incluir todas las áreas del quehacer de la Iglesia.Las subvenciones de la UTO son financiadas en gran medida con el dinero que los episcopales depositan en las “cajitas azules” que ellos mantienen en sus casas y oficinas. Durante los últimos 124 años, la UTO ha otorgado subvenciones por el monto de $131.789.046,70, según un informe que aparece aquí.La UTO sugiere que diariamente las personas deben orar y dar —echando algunas monedas en su Caja Azul—en reconocimiento de su diaria gratitud por lo que Dios les ha dado. A menudo, las personas a quienes la UTO llama “dadores agradecidos” suplementan sus contribuciones diarias antes de enviar el dinero a la UTO, ya sea individualmente o mediante un proceso conocido como recolecciones diocesanas. La UTO cree que las dádivas agradecidas unen espiritualmente a los dadores con las personas que se benefician de sus dádivas.Durante la reunión de la junta directiva, del 25 al 1 de octubre, Melton dijo que las ofrendas a la UTO habían disminuido a lo largo de los últimos diez años.En 2007, la UTO otorgó 91 subvenciones por un monto total de $2.401.906,70. En 2009, otorgó cerca de $2,1 millones en 63 subvenciones. Para 2013, la UTO concedió 48 subvenciones por un total de $1.517.280,91. La lista completa de subvenciones puede encontrarse aquí.El Consejo Ejecutivo pidió en 2008 que un grupo de estudio sobre la  UTO esclareciera la relación legal de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (la DFMS es la entidad legal corporativa de la Iglesia) con la UTO.Sandra McPhee, la primera presidente del grupo, hizo notar en ese tiempo que no existía nada por escrito que definiera la relación de la UTO con la DFMS, pese a que la UTO usaba el número de exención de impuestos asignado a la DFMS por la Superintendencia de Contribuciones (IRS), la cual espera que la DFMS “controle” a la UTO.El comité del Consejo que propuso el grupo de estudio también hizo notar la disminución de ingresos de la UTO y se preguntó si el modelo de recaudación de fondos de la UTO y sus métodos de asignación de fondos necesitaba actualizarse.El grupo de estudio de 2008 informó al Consejo y a la Convención General en 2012. El Consejo aprobó el informe del grupo en 2011 e incluyó una nueva serie de estatutos y solicitó un memorando de acuerdo entre la UTO y la DFMS. La Convención también adoptó el informe y los estatutos.Jefferts Schori solicitó una reunión con los miembros de la junta de la UTO y con personal de la DFMS este pasado mes de julio. Durante esa reunión ella nombró un comité que colaborara con algunos miembros de la junta de la UTO para redactar un memorando de acuerdo y revisar los estatutos del grupo a fin de que estuvieran en conformidad con las leyes federales y la política de la DFMS que la Obispa Primada buscaba. Fue esa labor la que finalmente condujo a las renuncias de algunos miembros de la junta de la UTO.– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Education remains priority amid General Seminary faculty departures

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL October 2, 2014 at 9:04 pm Father Webber,I concur. This slow deterioration of the worship/prayer life at General came to a head under the misguided leadership of this ‘posterboy’ of careerism in the Episcopal Church is simply unacceptable.Go with God.Father Anthony C. Dinoto, GTS ’99 October 2, 2014 at 12:31 am After posting my query I read the article at the NY Times, which was somewhat illuminating:“Seeking Dean’s Firing, Professors End Up Jobless,” by Sharon Otterman, Oct 1, 2014http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/02/nyregion/labor-dispute-leaves-professors-jobless.htmlI wanted to share the information in case it is helpful to others. [Episcopal News Service] The board of trustees’ executive committee for General Theological Seminary in New York has “voted with great regret to accept the resignations” of eight full-time professors who say “the working environment that the Dean and President has created has become unsustainable.”The board said its decision came “after much prayer and deliberation and after consulting our legal council.” The trustees also said that the primary concern of the seminary “continues to be the education and formation of our students.”A conflict between the dean and some members of faculty at the nearly 200-year-old seminary was made public late last week when e-mails from the departing professors to students were circulated.Nowhere in those e-mails did the eight say they were resigning and at least one of the professors, Andrew Irving, said in a subsequent e-mail that “we wish to underline that we have not resigned. Our letters did not say that we would resign. We requested meetings with the board.”The 37-member board, many of whom met via conference call on Sept. 29 to discuss the conflict, said in a statement released the next day that they had reached their decision “with heavy hearts,” but agreed that “following months of internal divisions around the future direction of General Seminary” it was the “best path forward in educating our students and shaping them into leaders of the church.”The board said that the seminary is willing to meet with any former faculty member about the possibility of reconsidering his or her position.The eight faculty members said they would not teach, attend meetings, or participate in common worship in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd until “pressing issues” at the seminary were addressed.After the trustees made their decision, the Very Rev. Kurt Dunkle, who became dean and president in July 2013, said in a Sept. 29 e-mail to students: “Prayer is the most powerful response any of us can make at this point. Please pray.”Dunkle and the remaining faculty, the board said, “are working on the best ways to continue teaching and advising and to assure all that we will continue to provide quality education and formation with the least amount of interruption possible.”The board’s statement notes that the school’s New York location “affords us access to a wide range of resources, and we shall be drawing upon those resources to address any needs created by these resignations.”Professors Joshua Davis, Mitties DeChamplain, Deirdre Good, David Hurd, Andrew Irving, Andrew Kadel, Amy Lamborn and Patrick Malloy said in their Sept. 26 e-mail to students that they were not going to teach, attend meetings, or participate in common worship until “pressing issues” at the seminary were addressed. They said that “despite many attempts at dialogue in the past year – including conversations facilitated by a professional external facilitator – the situation has deteriorated to such an extent that we have reached an impasse.”The professors said that they had communicated what they called “dire circumstances” to the board of trustees and said that their “work stoppage” could be ended immediately if the board would commit to meeting with them.But the board said in its statement that some of those demands for action were “not possible under the governing structure of the Seminary.”Dunkle, a former lawyer and a 2004 graduate of GTS, e-mailed the seminary community on the morning of Sept. 29 saying that the principal concern is the welfare of the students and acknowledging that worship is central to GTS.In a further email on Sept. 30, as the board’s statement was pending, Dunkle confirmed that about half of the classes would continue uninterrupted. “As we go through this together, remember that all our hope on God is founded,” he added. “It’s not just a hymn, but a guiding reminder of our fundamental truth. Prayer, either alone or together, is the most effective way to access God. Please remember to continue to pray for all those here and not here.”The departing professors expressed their view that Dunkle “has repeatedly shown that he is unable to articulate sensitively and theologically the issues that are essential to the thriving of the Body of Christ in its great diversity. Moreover his failure to collaborate, or to respond to our concerns when articulated has resulted in a climate that many of us find to be fraught with conflict, fear, and anxiety.”They mentioned that there had been “a number of very serious incidents and patterns of behavior which have over time caused faculty, students, and staff to feel intimidated, profoundly disrespected, excluded, devalued, and helpless … Our concerns about these behaviors and their consequences have been dismissed by the Dean. We find that the Dean’s unwillingness to take responsibility for the damage that these ways of acting and speaking have caused is deeply problematic.”The board of trustees said in its Sept. 30 statement that it is conducting an internal investigation into the allegations of statements made by Dunkle.The General Theological Seminary was founded in 1817 in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City as the first theological seminary of the Episcopal Church.As with many theological institutions, GTS has faced economic pressures following the global financial crisis leading to the sale of some of its property in order to eliminate debt and balance its budget. There was no indication from the various statements and correspondence that the seminary’s financial issues had in any way contributed to the present conflict.The 10 Episcopal seminaries in the U.S. have very few official ties to the Episcopal Church, beyond General Convention’s authority to elect six of the GTS trustees.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will visit the school on the morning of Oct. 1. She will visit an 8:30 a.m. class, attend chapel and then “be present on the Close until 11:30 a.m. for your own contact with her,” Dunkle said in his first Sept. 30 e-mail to students.“The Church is counting on us,” the board concluded in its statement. “This week Dean Dunkle and the remaining faculty are working on the best ways to continue teaching and advising and to assure all that we will continue to provide quality education and formation with the least amount of interruption possible.“While we may sometimes disagree, the commitment to our current students is a responsibility that the Board takes seriously. It is for their well-being alone that we came to this resolution, and pray that our decision was the right one.” September 30, 2014 at 5:45 pm I am mystified as to the source and details of this conflict, and the article does nothing to alleviate my confusion. Could someone who understands what is happening at GTS provide a link to a reputable source, or possibly to another article that contains better information? It would be greatly appreciated, as this sounds like a matter that should be better understood by our community. I would like to have at least some idea what in the world is going on.

Lots of smoke and mirrors about “prayerful consideration” and so on, without once addressing the WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, and HOW of the grave matters at hand. Members of the church deserve a full and public dialogue about the specific causes of dissension that have created such a drastic and horrendous outcome. So, ENS, what is going on the precipitated this? What are the specific charges or allegations? Nothing short of full candor and specifics will suffice. I’m glad that people are engaged in prayer over this issue, but what is it that people are praying for and about?

Yet the eight professors say they did not resign. So, we have a little problem here about what constitutes resignation. Did the Board interpret their pledge of work-stoppage until a conversation with the Board was possible as the equivalent of resignation? That was never stated. I’m not associated with General, and I don’t know how much of the faculty eight members represents, but it surely has to be significant. Why isn’t the Board and the Dean talking with them? October 1, 2014 at 3:03 pm It was spelled incorrectly on the GTS document I read, as “council” instead of “counsel”. It was probably corrected later. September 30, 2014 at 6:35 pm AMEN! Rector Smithfield, NC Sylvia Vasquez says: September 30, 2014 at 4:48 pm I wonder — can a board of trustees, in the State of New York, vote on a decision by telephone conference call? I know that is illegal in many states, and am aware that Standing Committees are not suppose to act that way in the consent to bishop’s elections. It is a curious choice. The letter from the Board indicated that it was the Executive Committee that took this action regarding the faculty. We are starting to get too many conflicting reports. Rev. Terri Brice says: J. Suhar says: Mary Roehrich says: Tags Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC September 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm It’s not ENS’s fault. The point is, there’s not some external issue this is about, like pay or hours. According to the faculty, the issue here is the Dean’s inability to cooperate with anybody on anything. Their statements are that he won’t listen, orders people around, and if anyone ever disagrees with him, he reacts with intimidation and hostility. And the faculty say that even after they’ve had a mediator come in, he’s been just as hostile or more so. There’s more extensive coverage over on Episcopal Cafe, with statements from both sides.

I’ve been following this situation for several days and the particularities have been quite unsettling. I think this is an example of bad hierarchy in the modern education and Church system. I certainly acknowledge that not all hierarchy is inherently bad, but when folks in leadership positions and positions of power refuse to include valued and respected members of their community/staff in their decision process, deny meetings with them, and then fire them by way of “accepting resignations” that never actually existed– there is a serious abuse of power. My prayer is that those administrators and those on the board would prayerfully re-consider their decision and would remember that Jesus saw His power with/as God as something not to be exploited but humbled and emptied himself, even to death on the cross.

Didn’t it occur to you that you could have expressed your position without bringing up an unproven stereotype? September 30, 2014 at 4:34 pm I regret that the author of this article elected to include no specifics with respect to issues and positions in conflict. That leaves the reader with only the knowledge that this important seminary is in crisis. I do not ask the author to take a position, but I expect journalistic standards that give depth to reporting and value to the reader.Michael PattersonReno, Nevada J. W. McRee says: Comments (62) October 2, 2014 at 3:47 am I agree. In my view as a longtime editor and columnist, this story should have been held until both sides could be represented or the details gleaned in some other fashion. Ofherwise, just state that noone will talk. It’s too easy for rumors to start sounding like facts. September 30, 2014 at 6:45 pm Very troubling and from everything I read here and at the Episcopal Cafe, it certainly appears that Dunkle is acting primarily as a stereotype New York City lawyer rather than as a priest primarily assigned to the care of souls. As someone currently in the discernment process, I can say with certainty that GTS is no longer on my list of possibilities for future ministerial education. Very sad. September 30, 2014 at 5:45 pm You know, I am bloody well sick and tired of people putting good guy/bad guy hats on various factions and taking sides and using students – or students presenting themselves – as helpless victims. Truth is, we do not have enough information at this point to make any judgment. It’s like trying to diagnose why a patient is coughing and you haven’t gotten lab tests or vital signs or listened to lung sounds or gotten an X-ray or scan. It could be a cold or allergies or asthma or pneumonia or COPD or lung cancer, or some combination of causes. But, you won’t know until all the information and data is in and can be analyzed. From where I sit, no one’s hands are clean. After EDS and now GTS, it feels a bit like Israel and Palestine. After a while, it almost makes no difference who is right and who is wrong. Just stop it. Not one more pound of flesh or one more pint of blood. Just behave like grown up – indeed, ones who profess to be Christian – and get on with the work of teaching and doing and modeling the Gospel, please. Elizabeth Sheppard says: Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Collierville, TN September 30, 2014 at 5:47 pm Exactly. Well put September 30, 2014 at 7:50 pm Since when does the gospel not take sides? God loves all equally, yes, but Jesus definitely took sides when it came to how we treat one another. He did, after all, overturn a few tables in the temple. Yes, details are still sketchy, but in time I feel sure there will be a side to take. From what we know now, things aren’t looking good. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Reggie Harris says: September 30, 2014 at 5:53 pm I’m with Elizabeth. No more taking sides! Much better for us to be all about the notoriously non-side-taking Gospel. Lou Divis says: September 30, 2014 at 9:51 pm Truth takes many forms on all sudes of this situation. GTS has become a “we vs them” situation. Broken trust and communication, forced terminations/resignations, emotional decision makers…… Perhaps God will redeem this struggle by strengthening the future clergy at GTS who will confront these situations in their own ministries more often than we would like to admit. Perhaps this situation will teach us that we should all look at the statistics of what clergy and their vestries/boards do with and to each other in this same painful way. And then the hard work of owning our roles in it, asking for and receiving forgiveness and working towards how God’s kingdom wants differently from us needs to commence. The statistics of these types of conflict in the local, and all parts of, church are rising. What GTS is experiencing is very similar. Read the recent posts from the Episcopal Womens Caucus! God forgive us all. September 30, 2014 at 5:45 pm I don’t know what is more lamentable, the issue (whatever it is), or the news source (not) reporting it.

I am saddened and horrified by the additional negative image of Anglicanism and Christianity your USA seminary standoff situation presents to the world. Your debate may appear local and petty to you, but it has global effects on us, so please consider this. Through the internet, your situation delights anti-Christian terrorist groups in Australia. It provides them with strong evidence to lure Christians away from Churches. Please find a way to address and resolve your differences. Why can’t the irreconcilable parties form two parallel subseminaries within the seminary? Then they could be required to debate their disagreements rigorously and properly, with parallel peer review from both sides, in academic journals, and students would be free to choose their alliance, or move between both points of view as they discern. This would expose personal rivalries and shine a light on the truth.

Heavy hearts? Seriously? The one big gigantic almost impossibly reachable request made by the faculty was to meet with the board. Why couldn’t they meet with the faculty? It seems that there is darkness surrounding this whole event and the fact that EIGHT respected faculty could be cast aside so easily raises serious doubts about the seminary leadership of both the Dean and the Board. And if the seminary is successful in continuing to function without the faculty by hiring from the great pool of talent available in New York those “scab” professors would be “crossing the picket line” and the seminary would continue to bury the real problems that brought it to this disgraceful situation.

Helene Swanson says: Comments are closed. Lou Divis says: September 30, 2014 at 6:44 pm I am not a GTS alum, and I don’t know anything more than what I’ve read in the various articles and letters. I am incredibly saddened, however, by the whole situation. A couple of weeks ago we heard Jesus telling his followers how they were to handle conflict: face to face and in conversation with one another, first one on one and then including others as necessary. From here it would appear that faculty members asked for just this kind of meeting and were refused.Regardless of the issues involved, I can think of no way this position could be defended in a Christian community.Again, last week we were reminded by St. Paul to put on the mind of Christ, who took on the form of a servant. And Jesus himself said at one point, “I am among you as one who serves.” Surely if there were ever a place where this kind of servant leadership is appropriate–and important–it is in a church and in a seminary whose purpose is to train students for this kind of leadership. And not just to teach it, but to model it.I wonder who it is that’s being served here: God? The Gospel? The Church? The students? Egos? Turf? I suspect it’s more than a bit of the last two.Someone commented that they can’t know what to pray for if they don’t know the issues. We don’t need to know the issues to pray for the Holy Spirit to soften and open the hearts of all those involved. We can pray that a way can be found through this darkness and that all parties will humble themselves so they can listen to one another and hold their own opinions lightly, remembering that they are probably right on some matters and wrong on others, as is true of everyone.Lord, have mercy.

He was 92.Turei, who had ties to the Ngati Porou and Te Whanau-a-Apanui Maori tribes, had signaled his intention to retire from ordained ministry earlier last year.He had planned to step down as bishop of Tairawhiti, and also to resign as archbishop and pihopa o Aotearoa – or leader of Te Pihopatanga o Aotearoa, the Maori arm of the Anglican Church – in March this year.“Maoridom and the Anglican Church have lost a leader of enormous stature,” said Archbishop Philip Richardson. “Archbishop Brown was a gentle and wise leader, who brought grace, compassion and insight to all that he did and said.”Archbishops Philip Richardson and Winston Halapua, who have shared the leadership of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia with Turei, say they have lost not only a colleague but also a dear friend.Turei was ordained a deacon in 1949 and a priest the following year.He was chosen as archdeacon of Tairawhiti in 1982, and has had a long association with Hukarere Maori Girls’ College. He became the chaplain there in 1984, and he also served as chaplain of the Napier Prison for four years.His election as Te Pihopa ki Te Tai Rawhiti in 1992 followed the reforms of the Anglican church here in 1990.In 2005, he was elected Te Pihopa o Aotearoa, and in 2006 he was installed as primate and archbishop of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. Last year Turei was made on officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) for his services to the church.Turei, who was highly respected for his ability to relate to people across all races and cultures, was the oldest primate in the Anglican Communion. The church is being asked to pray for Turei’s wife Mihi, and his children, grandchildren and extended whanau. Funeral arrangements are yet to be finalized.

Émission d’avril 2017 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Bath, NC Pour écouter l’émission cliquer sur : http://frequenceprotestante.com/emission/magazine-anglicanLes chrétiens de toutes traditions ont fêté Pâques, le même jour, cette année. Temples et églises ont fait le plein, ce dimanche pascal.Le Magazine Anglican s’interroge sur les raisons de cet afflux les jours de fête et plus largement, pourquoi on va à l’église.Pour répondre à cette interrogation six témoignages ont été recueillis auprès de paroissiens de la Cathédrale Épiscopale de Paris. Ils expliquent comment ils sont venus à la Cathédrale et pourquoi ils continuent d’y venir régulièrement.Face aux statistiques qui soulignent la baisse continue de fréquentation des églises en Europe et aux Etats-Unis, Anne –Marie Reijnen propose une approche qualitative de ce qui attire encore et toujours à l’église. Pour elle, c’est la possibilité de rencontrer autrui et de vivre pleinement sa Foi dans la liturgie, le dimanche et lors de périodes exceptionnelles comme le Carême.Une liturgie magnifiée par la musique indique Denis Le Moullac, paroissien et choriste de longue date à la Cathédrale. Une liturgie diversifiée grâce aux trois services du dimanche que nous font découvrir Harriet Rivière, membre du Vestry et Laurence Moachon, animatrice de l’émission.Mais de nos jours, exprimer sa Foi, peut aussi suivre d’autres voies que celle de la liturgie. La voie des œuvres caritatives pour les membres de la Junior Guild ou celle du culturel, comme l’explique Joanne Dauphin qui a créé le service des guides bénévoles à la Cathédrale, avant de prendre le chemin du diaconat.Deux témoignages montrent à quel point l’église peut impacter des moments importants de la vie personnelle. C’est le cas de Jocelyn Phelps, épiscopalienne de souche, mais aussi de Mary Ellen Dolan, issue d’une famille irlandaise catholique.Tous montrent, au delà de l’habitude, l’expérience profonde qui pousse à venir et revenir à l’église. Il n’en reste pas moins que l’église doit s’adapter à la vie actuelle et proposer de nouvelles manières « d’être église ».Pour écouter l’émission cliquer sur : http://frequenceprotestante.com/emission/magazine-anglicanLe Magazine Anglican est diffusé, le 4e samedi du mois, à l’antenne parisienne de Fréquence Protestante.

Draft order calls for Bruno to be suspended from ministry…

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jul 24, 2017 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno spent nearly seven hours March 29 and 30 talking to the Hearing Panel considering the disciplinary action against him. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The hearing panel considering disciplinary action against Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop J. Jon Bruno has drafted an order calling for his suspension from ordained ministry for three years because of misconduct.The five-member panel concluded in a 4-1 decision that “the scope and severity of Bishop Bruno’s misconduct … have unjustly and unnecessarily disturbed the ministry of a mission of the Church.”The 91-page draft order specifically rejects calls for Bruno to be deposed, or removed, from ordained ministry. It says that during the three-year suspension Bruno could not exercise any authority over “the real or personal property or temporal affairs of the Church.” A three-year suspension would take Bruno beyond his mandatory retirement date in November 2018, when he turns 72.The draft order, which is not final, also urges the diocese to let the members of St. James the Great return to their Newport Beach, California, building.Bruno locked out the congregation nearly two years ago after the members objected to his unsuccessful 2015 attempt to sell the St. James property to a condominium developer for $15 million in cash. The congregation has been worshipping in a meeting room at the Newport Beach City Hall. Its canonical status with the diocese is in limbo.The attempted sale occurred less than 18 months after Bruno reopened St. James in late 2013, after recovering the property via a lawsuit prompted by a split in the congregation. Three other congregations in the diocese also split in disputes about the Episcopal Church’s full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the life of the church.The subsequent effort to sell St. James to a developer prompted congregation members to bring misconduct allegations against Bruno, claiming he violated Episcopal Church law. A hearing on those allegations was held in March.Bruno continued to try to sell the property even after that hearing. Those efforts, which the bishop tried to conceal, earned him a rebuke from the hearing panel in June. The panel said Bruno had to stop trying to sell the property during the disciplinary process. If he did try, or succeeded, before the panel decided the original case against him, that behavior would be “disruptive, dilatory and otherwise contrary to the integrity of this proceeding,” the panel said at the time. The same is true of his failure to give the panel the information it asked for about the accusations, the notice said. Such behavior violates the portion of canon law that governs the behavior of clerics who face disciplinary actions (Canon IV.13.9(a) page 151 here).A few days later, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry partially restricted Bruno’s ministry, specifically his ability to sell the church property.Bruno’s appeal of the panel’s sanctions failed.Acknowledging its inability to assess whether St. James could have survived had it been able to stay in its building, the hearing panel says in the draft order that “there is ample evidence of its viability and promise to convince the hearing panel that St. James the Great was robbed of a reasonable chance to succeed as a sustainable community of faith.” The congregation, the order says, “is a casualty of Bishop Bruno’s misconduct.”Calling it “a matter of justice,” the panel recommends that the diocese immediately suspend its efforts to sell the St. James property, that it restore the congregation and vicar to the church building and that it reassign St. James the Great the appropriate mission status.The draft order says that although Canon IV.14.6 would allow the panel to act to help St. James the Great, it declines to do so. “Title IV disciplinary actions are not designed to address the complexities of the specific diocesan property issues that are before it,” the order says. “The hearing panel believes that bishops do and should have authority over mission property and that standing committee review and approval is a crucial part of the fabric and polity of the Church.”The draft also says that the panel members believe the Diocese of Los Angeles has work to do to reach the goals of justice, healing, restitution and reconciliation upon which the Title IV disciplinary process is based. “The hearing panel is convinced that the Diocese of Los Angeles, particularly its Standing Committee with the supportive leadership of its newly ordained coadjutor, must consciously choose to take part in a process of self-examination and truth telling around these unfortunate and tragic events,” the order says.Without that work, the panel says, those goals will not be achieved “from the outside by force of canon.”The draft order meticulously recounts the testimony and evidence the panel reviewed. It essentially upholds the St. James complainants’ allegations that Bruno violated church canons because he:failed to get the consent of the diocesan standing committee before entering into a contract to sell the property;misrepresented his intention for the property to the members, the clergy and the local community at large;misrepresented that St. James the Great was not a sustainable congregation;misrepresented that the Rev. Cindy Evans Voorhees, St. James’ vicar, had resigned;misrepresented to some St. James members that he would lease the property back to them for a number of months and that the diocese would financially aid the church; andengaged in conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy by “misleading and deceiving” the clergy and people of St. James, as well as the local community, about his plans for the property and for taking possession of the property and locking out the congregation.Diocese of Southern Virginia Bishop Herman Hollerith IV is president of the hearing panel considering the case against Bruno. The panel, appointed by the Disciplinary Board for Bishops from among its members, includes Rhode Island Bishop Nicholas Knisely, North Dakota Bishop Michael Smith, the Rev. Erik Larsen of Rhode Island and Deborah Stokes of Southern Ohio.Smith dissented from the draft order. He said none of the parties should have taken their disputes to the secular courts, including the one with the members of the four split congregations. He cited 1 Corinthians 6:1,7-8 admonishing Christians against filing lawsuits. Smith also said that property disputes should not be adjudicated in the Episcopal Church’s disciplinary process.And he suggested that St. James was too focused on a particular piece of property. “In this season of the Church’s life, many congregations are learning to become communities of faith outside ‘the four walls of the church building,’” he wrote.The hearing panel did not publically release its draft order. It apparently gave the draft to the complainants and the presiding bishop for comment. Title IV.14.7 (page 153 here) calls for those parties “to be heard on the proposed terms of the order.” Comments to the hearing panel are due by July 26.Bruno is not allowed to comment on the draft to the hearing panel. The diocese released a statement July 21 saying in part that no one from the diocese would make any public statement on the draft, “continuing their commitment to respect the integrity of the Title IV process, a priority that Bishop Bruno has upheld through the duration of the two-year proceedings.”Neva Rae Fox, Episcopal Church public affairs officer, said the church would not comment while the Title IV process continues.Roger Bloom, a communications consultant working for St. James, released the draft late July 21, reportedly after consulting a lawyer who told him Episcopal Church canons did not prevent its release.Forty days after the final order is issued, the Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick, president of the Disciplinary Board for Bishops, has 20 days to sentence Bruno. He can appeal that sentence and, if he does, the sentence is not imposed while the appeal proceeds. Meanwhile, however, the draft order is clear that Curry’s partial restriction on Bruno remains in force.Bruno turns 72, the Episcopal Church’s mandatory retirement age, in late 2018. His successor, Bishop Coadjutor John Taylor, was ordained and consecrated July 8 in Los Angeles.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is senior editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

And who exactly is responsible for that legal fight? This is called the chickens coming home to roost. If the Episcopal Diocese of LA had acted in a different spirit and not been so greedy, we wouldn’t be in this situation. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Steve Catanich says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI July 24, 2017 at 6:00 pm Reading Erica Hahn’s commentary just a few minutes ago, I think Bishop Bruno did the best he could in a tough situation. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Peter Easton says: July 25, 2017 at 11:21 am A very BIG reason I am no longer an Episcopalian and sought ordination elsewhere is the inordinate priority the Episcopal Church gives to money and power. The Bruno case is a prime example of this, where, rather than provide maximum effort and resources to help a community of the Kingdom of God succeed in building up that Kingdom, approached the situation solely from a business standpoint. In the Great Commission, God did not call Christians to establish a financially successful church. Rather, we are to go out and spread the Kingdom far and wide. The Diocese of Los Angeles, through the sales of other property that did not involve displacing a congregation, recovered all or nearly all of what it spent on the property recovery litigation (which in an of itself was a mistake – as progressive as I am, and very opposed to that for which ACNA stands, those congregations should have been permitted to go their own way in peace with their buildings). The people of Saint James have poured their hearts, souls, and resources into their community. For Bruno to take their building away from behind their back was an unconscionable abuse of power. The issue the panel decided was not whether Bruno had a right to sell the property, but should have done so. The answer is clearly NO. No bishop, or anyone else in power, should be able to exercise their authority free from review without checks and balances. And the Standing Committee failed, too. They were so mesmerized by Bruno’s charisma that they failed to exercise independent judgment, as well as failing to ascertain the “sensus fidelium” of their Diocese as a whole, and take that into account in their decision making. To allow the personality of a leader, however strong, to take the place of wise and considered decision-making, stands the very doctrine of God on its head: do we allow clergy (or anyone) to be God for us instead of God? Rector Collierville, TN July 25, 2017 at 1:32 pm If a man is good all his life and then shoots and kills someone, do we only look at the good he did? Bruno is guilty and should also be audited! Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit a Job Listing Rector Knoxville, TN Featured Jobs & Calls Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Lloyd Newell says: July 24, 2017 at 9:58 pm Thank you for this report, Mary Frances. It is a time of sadness all around. July 26, 2017 at 8:32 pm Steve:The court ruled in July that the deed restriction was unenforceable. Lawyers for Bishop Bruno had also filed a bogus slander of title cause of action, and the Court awarded the opponents over $100,000 in attorney fees and costs against the Diocese. For two years, St. James has stood vacant with the Diocese responsible for overhead and maintenance costs while the Bishop shopped for buyers.In his appeal briefs filed with the Panel, the Diocese attorneys contended that the Panel had no power or jurisdiction over the Bishop’s discretion to sell the church, and argued that since the Panel had not placed any restrictions on the Bishop’s power to sell the church after the hearing had concluded in March, that the inquiry as to whether he had sold the church after the hearing was without merit and irrelevant. When you anoint a Bishop with dictatorial powers, it should be no surprise when he acts like a dictator and does what he alone believes is best for the Diocese. The findings of the Panel aside, in my opinion, Bishop Bruno is the victim of his own ego, the withering membership and financial drain due to litigation that required the Bishop to look for alternative commercial investments to fund the Church’s political and social justice mission work, and likely due to poor advice from the lawyers for the Diocese who have been paid enormous fees. Bad advice aside, the buck stops with Bishop Bruno who called the shots.This story is not over yet. The sale may have been consummated, and it is just that the deeds are not yet recorded. If so, and the TEC does not purchase the property back from the developer, or the developer does not exercise an option to rescind the purchase, then the loyal congregants of St. James lose their Church. Bishop Bruno quietly resigns into retirement. The financial drain on the Diocese in litigation costs continues. Members of other parish or mission churches no longer trust the Diocese or its Bishops and decline to contribute capital to church improvements. More disgusted members leave the church with their pledge money. Who wins? Maybe just the lawyers.

July 25, 2017 at 11:26 am I would urge Ms. Hahn and others to read the draft decision of the Hearing Panel. The panel deals, chapter and verse, with the claims that St. James was costing the diocese a lot of money, that Bishop Bruno had to sell the St. James property to pay for legal fees.

Featured Events Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC July 25, 2017 at 1:43 am The article failed to mention that Bruno apparently tried to sell the property after the disciplinary council met to a second condo developer. The diocese claimed they couldn’t comment on the apparent second proposed sale because of “confidentiality agreements” with the new developer. Bruno is incorrigible!!!

July 24, 2017 at 5:39 pm Bishop Bruno does seem to have acted in an extremely high-handed manner. But no more so than many other fellow bishops whose recent decisions as recounted by Episcopal News Service seem to many of us just as violative of sound Episcopal tradition and good practice. July 26, 2017 at 2:59 am Mwhst I don’t understand is how a title policy could be gotten for St James. The land was a restricted gift, to be used only for a church. If the church had gone under, whoever donsted the land would have gotten it back. Cate McMahon says: Rector Washington, DC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Albany, NY July 25, 2017 at 7:18 pm The members of Grace Episcopal in Michigan left the EC, not because of the LGBTQ. We left because the Bishop told us the bible is a myth, Christ was just a man, a teacher, not the Son of GOD, he did not rise from the dead. These are just stories to teach us some higher truth. The cover story continually used by the EC about LGBTQ is just False News created to cover the real reason the church spit and is disintegrating. Draft order calls for Bruno to be suspended from ministry for three years Panel also asks Los Angeles to let congregation return to St. James’ building July 24, 2017 at 5:38 pm I consider the decision of this panel a tragedy. Bruno’s conduct was to try to save the finances of the Los Angeles Diocese after a financially crippling protracted legal fight to regain St. James and three other churches taken over by breakaway congregations. The Rev Voorhees recently ordained asked for permission to try to establish a new congregation at St. James. St. James is a large building in a very expensive part of Newport, California. In the next couple of years as a mission church she had built a small congregation which was certainly not able to pay for the church’s operations. Whether it could ever be self sustaining is unclear. There are several other Episcopal Churches in the immediate area and the question has to be asked whether Rev. Voorhees would be able to attract members of those congregations to St. James. (which is also unethical)As to Bruno’s statement that Voorhees had resigned it was based on her message to her congregation after they were evicted that she would not continue with them anymore.In my opinion the order is both unjust to Jon Bruno, and a financial disaster for our Diocese as we now cannot sell the property and will have to continue to support this tiny mission for an indefinite period of time.

On this day: Yosemite National Park established

first_img 1 COMMENT TAGSThe HIstory ChannelYosemite National Park Previous articleMatthew is now a Category 5 HurricaneNext articleSeminole County Sheriff schedules NNO event in Apopka Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR On This Day in History: October 1st, 1890From The History ChannelOn this day in 1890, an act of Congress creates Yosemite National Park, home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. Environmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and nature lovers, along with countless “Don’t Feed the Bears” signs.Native Americans were the main residents of the Yosemite Valley, located in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, until the 1849 gold rush brought thousands of non-Indian miners and settlers to the region. Tourists and damage to Yosemite Valley’s ecosystem followed. In 1864, to ward off further commercial exploitation, conservationists convinced President Abraham Lincoln to declare Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias a public trust of California. This marked the first time the U.S. government protected land for public enjoyment and it laid the foundation for the establishment of the national and state park systems. Yellowstone became America’s first national park in 1872.In 1889, John Muir discovered that the vast meadows surrounding Yosemite Valley, which lacked government protection, were being overrun and destroyed by domestic sheep grazing. Muir and Robert Underwood Johnson, a fellow environmentalist and influential magazine editor, lobbied for national park status for the large wilderness area around Yosemite Valley. On October 1 of the following year, Congress set aside over 1,500 square miles of land (about the size of Rhode Island) for what would become Yosemite National Park, America’s third national park. In 1906, the state-controlled Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove came under federal jurisdiction with the rest of the park.Yosemite’s natural beauty is immortalized in the black-and-white landscape photographs of Ansel Adams (1902-1984), who at one point lived in the park and spent years photographing it. Today, over 3 million people get back to nature annually at Yosemite and check out such stunning landmarks as the 2,425-foot-high Yosemite Falls, one of the world’s tallest waterfalls; rock formations Half Dome and El Capitan, the largest granite monolith in the U.S.; and the three groves of giant sequoias, the world’s biggest trees.For more information on this day in history, go here.

Dora that were closed and then sat empty a long time, when the newer ones were built. Like the one that was on the old 441 across from the Golden Triangle Center, which eventually after sitting empty, became an out-of-control country nightclub (how well I know….LOL) and then when Publix had moved out to the newer 441, then that one was shut down too, and right across the road, in came the newer one, leaving the older one there sitting empty. It doesn’t help the community at all, really. I hope they keep the older one in Apopka at Rock Springs and Welch open and don’t close it. I really have to wonder about it.

We had Henry’s Meats, too. 21 COMMENTS I don’t know very much about grocery store’s profit margins, but I have heard that it is a very slim margin of profit on each and every item sold, often just pennies, and the competition is stiff, with other grocery stores trying to be # number one, plus so much food going to waste, and now there is additional fear with Amazon moving big time into the food business! Any news about Publix?? Anna Our grocery stores that we shopped at back then were the A & P, the Red & White, and the BI-LO that used to have a huge steer on the top of the store that was life- size and made out of fiberglass, I suppose. That was pretty much it for our area, before we moved to Florida. I don’t remember any pharmacies in any of the groceries, or plastic bags, only brown paper bags, nor recycling bins, or tote bags for sale like that are everywhere now for carrying groceries, or even all the extras like flowers, clothes, and things like that for sale…..just groceries.

We had other Winn-Dixie stores, one where the Victory Church is on Park Av., we had one at Wekiva Riverwalk shopping plaza, and we had a Goodings there too. My favorite place to buy birthday cake, OMG, their’s was wonderful, and so fresh and yummy. I really really miss them. We had Pantry Pride, we had Food Lion, Parten’s Market, and two big Albertsons. We got Walmart grocery now, Sam’s Club, and now the dollar stores have grocery sections, as well as the Walgreens, and CVS’s. We got Aldi, and Sav A Lot, and Bravo, and some small ethnic grocery stores. I really wish the vacant Albertsons at Rock Springs Road and Welch would open for something rather than sit empty.

The site also is proposed with a large gateway entry with water fountains and less than an acre of outparcel property at the corner of West Kelly Park and Plymouth Sorrento.The second phase of development could have a 3,000-square-foot restaurant building and a 3,600-square-foot retail building separated from the grocery store. Phase three includes a 7,200-square-foot retail building. Phase four will include a 6,000-square-foot retail building.Publix is among the largest supermarket chains in the country with more than 1,154 stores. Retail sales for 2016 reached $34 billion. Mama Mia Any 2021 updates on the new Publix on the corner of West Kelly Park Road and Plymouth Sorrento Road? Let me just say I know firsthand what it is like to be dropped off, along with my Daddy, by my mother in the middle of the seven-mile bridge over the keys, so we could fish, and she would come back later for us, but oops guess what???…..we forgot hooks….LOL. And that was a long long bridge to walk to the other end and there was hardly any stepping room with big rigs whoozing by and the old bridge rails were very low on my legs even as young as I was…..LOL ….Scary! Thought that was going to be the last of us. Didn’t have cell phones then.

The reality show continues……… August 23, 2017 at 8:41 pm Mama Mia When I was a kid back in the sixties, and we lived in another state, my parents would take me and we would drive to Florida and go on vacations. We would drive A1A down the east coast of Florida and we would picnic right alongside the beach, after stopping at the Publix deli and buying fried chicken, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, rolls, sodas, and deserts. I was thrilled, as I had never been to a Publix at that time, we didn’t have them in our state, and eating at the beach was thrilling to me. We would go all the way to Key West and on other trips to Florida, we would go down the west coast to Sanibel Island, and other places. My dad’s wish was to move to Florida, which we did later on……… Reply Reply Rock Springs Road Publix is small but it is convenient to those of us who live nearby and the employees are very friendly. I like the small Publix across from Wekiva Island area too, near Sabal Point. The new Publix that is proposed to come in, is definitely needed! The newer Publix on 441 (Mt. Dora Publix) before you get to Renniger’s Market from there and way across the acres and acres of rural areas behind that Publix all the way out to highway 44 there is hardly any places to buy groceries. Until recently when they put in the newer Publix on 44 which is either Eustis or Sorrento from there, and all the way toward Sanford it was a food desert area except for the IGA grocery store at Mt. Plymouth area, which I like very much. Other than a few convenient stores, and the small amount of groceries that the dollar stores carry, a real food desert!!! Maybe the opening of the new proposed Publix will help to relieve some of the traffic on RSR and Welch. Let’s hope so! July 7, 2018 at 8:30 am August 23, 2017 at 3:49 pm Please enter your comment!

Repairs continue as water levels decrease in some areas of Lake…

first_imgFrom the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictRepairs are underway at the Lake Apopka North Shore, which experienced damage due to Hurricane Irma. As water levels subside and assessments are completed, the district is continuing to provide weekly updates on the status of repairs and recreation at the Lake Apopka North Shore.Several days of dry weather allowed significant progress on repairs but additional work is necessary to make the area safe for public use. Several roads remain underwater.Initial repairs to the levee breach are complete. Additional repairs, including adding materials to stabilize the sides and top of the levee, will be completed when water levels decrease within the Lake Apopka North Shore.To date, 1,560 tons of material have been transported and placed on the breach to return the levee to its pre-hurricane elevation.Water levels on Lake Apopka decreased and are now at the regulation schedule.Discharge out of Lake Apopka through the Lake County Water Authority’s Nutrient Reduction Facility was temporarily reduced by half, to 150 cubic feet per second, for periodic maintenance and to maintain nutrient removal performance.Pumping continues from areas on the western portion of the property. As of Oct. 27, water levels in this area decreased by about 18 inches.Understanding that the North Shore is a popular outdoor recreation destination, the Red Trail, off County Road 448A, and the McDonald Canal Boat Ramp are open.To ensure public safety, and minimize potential damage to saturated roads, no other openings are planned at this point due to flooding and the continued presence of heavy equipment. The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive and nonmotorized Lake Apopka Loop Trail remain closed. As soon as the district determines that the public can safely access an area, it will open.For continuing updates on district operations and recreational announcements, visit the district’s website, www.sjrwmd.com.

Whole Foods Introduces “365” Stores to Compete with Trader Joe’s

Many residents leave the City everyday to go to work in other parts of Orange and Seminole Counties where WF and TJ’s are convenient. Other Apopka residents simply like to shop at these stores. Reply Reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here How is this relevant to Apopka? Is this just remind us how bad it is here? Where is our Trader Joe’s? Where’s our Whole Foods? Where’s our Aldi? All we have is overpriced Publix with their meager selection of poor quality produce, and about 100 dollar stores. Heck, at this point I’d settle for a Costco or even a Super Wal-mart. Increasing competition in the Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry leads Whole Foods to open first spin-off store targeting value-driven millennials.The US supermarket chain Whole Foods is set to open its first 365 by Whole Foods Market store in LA’s Silver Lake neighborhood. The highly anticipated spin-off store will be about two-thirds larger than an average Whole Foods location and will primarily stock the company’s premium private label 365 brand merchandise.The new store will offer amenities such as online ordering, a self-service tea station and an in-store vegan restaurant. The 365 store concept is targeted toward value-driven millennials, who are often deterred from the “Whole Paycheck” stigma associated with traditional Whole Foods stores.The company, which accounts for 2.6% of the $601.8-billion Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry, plans to open two additional West Coast locations in 2016, along with 13 more locations announced to open across the country through 2017.While feasibly the most publicized opening, Whole Foods is not the first grocer to launch a fresh format spin-off store banner. Similar to Kroger’s Main and Vine and Ahold’s bfresh banners, the 365 store concept is Whole Foods’ attempt to stay relevant in the highly saturated food retail market. Over the five years to 2016, the Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry has grown at a modest annualized rate of 1.4%.Although Whole Foods’ revenue growth has outpaced that of the industry, limited assortment stores such as Aldi and Trader Joe’s have expanded even more rapidly over the past five years. These stores are typically smaller in size and offer a narrower variety of competitively priced store brand products. Limited assortment stores have been particularly popular among the highly sought after millennial demographic, especially as a wider array of organic and premium-level private label products hit the shelves of these stores. While Whole Foods retails its 365 store brand merchandise at its current store locations, the new spin-off banner is a strategic move to compete head on with existing limited assortment stores, without compromising the high-end, niche-following standard of traditional Whole Foods locations.OutlookOver the next five years, the Supermarkets and Grocery Stores industry is expected to become more saturated and competitive. Along with Trader Joe’s and Aldi set to add additional storefronts, German discount grocer Lidl announced plans to enter the US market by 2018. Similarly, Whole Foods, along with many other national-scale grocers, is expected to continue expanding and improving its spin-off fresh format stores to stay relevant to the growing millennial market. With industry revenue only expected to rise at an annualized rate of 1.2% over the five years to 2021, such expansions and store updates will be a way for industry operators to maintain their market share, rather than a vehicle for expansion. As the competitive environment heats up and industry operators continue to invest in store enhancements, consumers will expect more value and experience when shopping for groceries, making such investments a necessity rather than a luxury for industry operators.

This just in: Controlled burn today at Lake Apopka North Shore

first_img Reply Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear The St. Johns River Water Management District is conducting a 3,000-acre prescribed fire today on the Lake Apopka North Shore. The purpose of the controlled burn is for marsh management, burning hardwoods and cattails and to promote the expansion of native marsh grasses. The fire was set by aerial ignition.Aerial ignition allows district staff to ignite fires more quickly, which results in faster burnout and less lingering smoke. Convection produced by igniting an area rapidly can help move the smoke up and away more quickly. Aerial ignition also allows staff to introduce fire into areas that may be inaccessible from the ground, ensuring that prescribed fire is introduced into even the most remote areas of the property. Aerial ignition allows staff to burn more acres in a shorter period of time, which in time will aid district staff in maintaining the fire frequency needed for the maintenance of the conservation area.Prescribed fire is the use of carefully planned fire purposefully set under stringent conditions to control the fire’s effects. Its benefits include restoring and maintaining natural communities, reducing chances of destructive wildfires, perpetuating fire-adapted plants and animals, cycling nutrients, controlling tree diseases, and opening scenic vistas. Prescribed fires help prevent wildfires by burning off fuels that naturally build up over time, while also helping to control the growth of woody shrubs.Before conducting a burn, the district ensures wind and other weather conditions are correct for controlling the fire and minimizing the impacts of smoke on residents and traffic.About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida. The St. Johns River Water Management District is one of five districts in Florida managing groundwater and surface water supplies in the state. The district encompasses all or part of 18 northeast and east-central Florida counties.

Mighty funny they monitored the wind, because my wind chimes on my front porch, have been clanging together all morning.

It helps the rest of us see how it might be for us as we age with our own spouses and what might be required. Thanks for being a role model and an inspiration! Charles, we make a promise when we marry to care for one another without knowing what we are promising to do and who will be caring for whom. That’s life. But it is an honor to care for the one who made the same promise to us. Besdies, it’s a gift of love. Cheering you on and on, Ernie Reply NH Herb Weissman At the gym (remember that place?) I see people working very hard to improve their physical strength. Yes, sometimes physical strength is required to help loved ones in need, but most often it is mental strength from our faith in God that enables us to go the extra mile(s). Please give Nancy a hug for us. Dear friend, I know your about you longing since, as you know, I was a caregiver for such a long time.

Chaz When I was much younger, about 13 or 14 and older, my grandmother had brain surgery to remove a life threatening blood clot and afterward she was placed in a nursing home. We would go see her every saturday and sometimes more often and I came to realize a harsh and terrible truth, the ones who get regular visitors are treated better than the ones that are ignored by family and friends! My grandfather would caution me about certain of the residents but I was young and had recently learned about the angels camped roundabout those who love the Lord for their protection!So off I went visiting, I found a man in a wheelchair who lost his legs to diabetes, he was a retired clown from Barnum&Bailey’s circus, the old guys grandpa cautioned me about all worked for a guy named Al Capone in Chicago! That was really exciting for a teenage boy! They used to ask me if anyone was giving me trouble and then they would laugh, I think they were just teasing me! Talking to all those folks back then in the 1960’s finally made me very sad about all the knowledge,all the stories that would disappear forever when they were gone! I could not help but think of “as you have done for the least of these” . I think I heard of someone who felt like that and they started going to nursing homes and recording these people so their knowledge and history would not be lost, God’s blessings on them one and all! Anyway Chuck, going the extra mile i well worth the effort because you meet such fantastic people along the way! Reply June 5, 2019 at 8:23 am There is something heroic about those that cheerfully go that second mile. Don was a second miler of an extraordinary magnitude. He was Betty’s caregiver for over fifty years. His attitude was always uplifting and encouraging. No matter what was demanded of him he loved her through those tough times. There is something amazing, almost superhuman about this type of love. Let it be said of us that we loved with a Holy, Godlike love.

Help each of us to live the principle of the second mile in all that we do. Blessings on you and yours dear friend, Chaz Dear Judith, ain’t it the truth! There are some few folks that just might question the clear mind thing, but I still know who I am. Papa God is so very good to us isn’t He? Bless you dear one. I remain your bro in love, Chaz Richard I remember when dad had his accident and was in a coma and never came out of it before he died. Larry and I had determined that we would take care of him no matter what but he only lived a week and a half. I guess all God wanted was the commitment that we would take care of him. Some times he does that. But when Larry was diagnosed with Leukemia I did care for him although in the early stages he was quite independent which was good for His self esteem. Later on when he could no longer drive his own vehicle he sold it to his brother. Then he got a scooter he could drive around the little town we lived in. And that helped him to have some form of independence. I determined I would do all I could, as long as I could and then I world have no regrets. There were some things i wish I had or had not done but of course that is hind sight.I guess what I’m trying to say is if you are a caregiver be careful that you don’t take away the independence of the one you are caring for before they need it. Some times its painful to watch them struggle with things, dressing, daily care, opening things, etc. But I know with my RA I try to do things myself and then if I am not able then I ask for help. I think that keeps a person feeling that they still have value. So I’ve been on both sides of the spectrum. Neither one is easy but God gives the strength to do what is necessary. Sometimes I think it is more difficult for the caregiver watching the one they are caring for than the one who is being cared for. Just some observations. I used to pray, God I need help with this or that but lately He has encouraged me to pray, God I need You! Not help, not strength, not wisdom, etc., just You! Really changed my perspective! I guess when we have Him we have everything we need!I am sure, unka Chuck, you have experienced all of these things taking care of Nancy for 15 years plus but maybe others that are in the same place haven’t and I think it is important to share ones experiences so others may benefit. Anyway, that’s my story and I do somewhat understand and very much appreciate your commitment to go the extra mile with Nancy and so happy for you that she still rerecognizes you. And so sad for those who don’t have family or family who care or even know how to care. My son is in that type of situation where he is caring for someone that had a stroke and the grown children are clueless as to how to care for their mother as she has done everything for them all their lives.

Or maybe you have been cast into the role of caring for an afflicted loved one.  How do you, or did you handle it? Did you run away? I was a runner for most of my life. When life became difficult… I ran. But, I no longer run.History loves to record the names of men who conquered the malice of their fate by the spirit and principle of the second mile.  There was blind Huber who went against all odds and became a great scientist, or blind Fawcett who became the postmaster general of England.  Have you done anything great in your life?  How about Cervantes using imprisonment to begin his classic work, “Don Quixote,” or Bunyan glorifying Bedford jail and honoring God with his work, “Pilgrim’s Progress.” I like the idea that every honest piece of work, no matter how humble is cooperation with God in building the universe!  What do you think?Here I am approaching my 85th. year.  My darling wife Nancy is in a nursing home suffering from Alzheimer’s disease as well as multiple sclerosis and the prognosis is bleak.  Do I want her there? No! A thousand times no!I go in each day and spend time with my sweetie. I suppose I am learning that the way to avoid the slavishness of necessity is to be willing, if possible, to do more than is demanded.  Yes, this is called, “going the second mile.”There are those dear ones that sit day after day waiting, yearning for their family members to visit,  to no avail.I wonder how our Holy God considers the abandonment of our loved ones?  Certainly, He is not pleased.But, when I walk into the nursing home and Nancy sees me her face lights up with great joy and That is glory itself, it is like Papa God himself is smiling at me. Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life.

New Zealand beat England to win the Wellington Sevens

first_imgTuesday Feb 8, 2011 New Zealand beat England to win the Wellington Sevens New Zealand won their second IRB World Series Sevens tournament in succession as they won at home, beating England 29-14 to take the Wellington Sevens title this past weekend. Debutant Declan ODonnell proved to be the star of the final.Still only 20 and very much unknown before the tournament commenced, ODonnell has burst onto the scene with his highly impressive performances over the weekend, scoring ten tries in total, and a hat-trick in his first ever final.“He’s outstanding. He had an outstanding tournament,” said New Zealand coach Gordon Tietjens. “It’s a huge call, I know, but Declan’s got some traits of Christian Cullen – fast feet, ability to glide and step at pace – and one-on-one you just know he’s going to beat the guy.“The more I see of him, he’s got a bit of Frank Bunce in him as well. I see him as a true centre, a potentially great centre, unbelievably strong defensively and a bit of mongrel thrown into the mix,” he added.England scored early but New Zealand hung in and soon turned things around as they streaked away victors in front of a capacity crowd at one of the most festive events on the Sevens Series calendar. They are now level with England on 64 points on the table.The series now moves to the US, and Las Vegas, on Feb 12th. Keep a lookout for ODonnell in the near future. Hes tipped to do big things, and with so little experience and game time behind him, is already a top try scorer. One to watch.

Warren Gatland thanks retired Adam Jones for his contribution to Welsh rugby

first_imgSunday Jan 25, 2015 Warren Gatland thanks retired Adam Jones for his contribution to Welsh rugby Wales and British and Irish Lions prop Adam Jones has announced his retirement from international rugby. The 33-year-old Cardiff Blues player notched up a highly impressive 95 caps for his country and won three Grand Slams. He hasn’t been picked for the Six Nations.Jones last played for Wales in their 38-16 defeat by South Africa in June 2014. He has told the Sunday Times that he felt like things started going downhill a little before that though.“It started when I got dropped for the last game of the 2014 Six Nations (against Scotland),” Jones explained. “I was still pretty happy with the way everything was going and I was thinking I’d get back in. Then there was the ’30-minute match’ in South Africa.”He was then overlooked for the Autumn Internationals in November. He says that he made his mind up before Christmas that if he was not chosen in the Six Nations squad, he would retire. “It’s obviously not the way I would want to finish, it’s not how I planned it in my head, and I hope no-one thinks I am simply quitting,” he said. His Lions tours of 2009 and 2013 included 5 Test appearances, which takes his overall international tally to 100 caps. He will continue playing for the Cardiff Blues.Wales coach Warren Gatland has offered his best wishes to Jones, thanking him for the contribution he made to Welsh rugby.“I want to thank Adam for his achievement in winning 95 caps for Wales and earning five test appearances for the British and Irish Lions,” said Gatland.“There is no doubt that Adam has played a huge part in Wales’ success.  He has three Grand Slams and a Championship to his name. That is an unbelievable record.“He made a big impact and contribution on the international stage and we all wish him well for his future career with the Cardiff Blues.”ADVERTISEMENT 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.

This house does not look like a house. The shape of the house traces the boundary of the village. The village consists of six houses in all. The shape of the village could be done by making it by stone wall in old times. The project site is located on the north edge of the village that is in the prominent place, and makes the face of the village.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThere is a position to observe the village from afar. Our intention is to form scenery from there. The shape to extend naturally the stone wall of old times. The horizontal slit carved there. It becomes familiar with the scenery of the village surprisingly. When you enter the house, you will be surprised at the sequence of the view that the slits cut out and the spaciousness there. Because of the horizontal slits surrounding the whole house there is scenery wherever you see. The horizontal slits that overlap in succession at the up and down are 15 totals and the total length is 115m.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe village in the deep place is seen in the slit in the north. Sequence of the mountain continues far away. Footpath in rice field and the person’s coming and going, which disappear into the mountains. The river is seen in the slit in the east. Children bubble over to catching sweetfish there. The Shinto shrine lurks under a large Japan cedar of 400 years. Tsukiaimichi (a communal alley) can be seen through the slit in the shoji in the south. The roofs of the village and the zelkova big trees overlap in the scenery. A mountain comes in the scenery in succession over that. The shrine where the forest and this village are defended is seen in the slit in the west.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThere is the one “Tsukiaimichi”. Though the road belongs to somebody of the village, everyone of village may freely pass through. The person in the village strolls with their dog on “Tsukiaimichi”, they stand chatting, and take a shortcut. The client gives importance to “Tsukiaimichi”. And he wishes to defend his privacy without closing the view to the outside.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe stone wall is extended. Thus the retaining wall is made. It forms “Tsukiaimichi” surrounding the site at the position without the pressure feeling. “Tsukiaimichi” goes up to the courtyard through the retaining wall where the width was narrowed once. The retaining wall lowers gradually and disappears on ground. Then view opens rapidly. But the stone of 170cm height wall is inside to obstruct the view into the house from passersby. And the stone wall 120cm in height appears. Here is the entrance. The shoji where the slit was put so as not to see the inside faces the courtyard. All those become like “Invisible Layers” between “Tsukiaimichi” and the life scene, which makes the ambiguous boundary there.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessNoodle Shop / ISSHO ArchitectsArticlesAD Round Up: Libraries Part IIIArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/51497/horizontal-house-eastern-design-office Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/51497/horizontal-house-eastern-design-office Clipboard Architects: EASTERN Design Office Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Horizontal House / EASTERN Design OfficeSave this projectSaveHorizontal House / EASTERN Design Office “COPY” Horizontal House / EASTERN Design Office 2007 CopyHouses•Japan “COPY” Projects ArchDailylast_img read more

A residence built on a two-tiered site with a level difference of 3 meters. Because of the concern remained about the credibility of embankment and retaining wall built along the housing development, the foundation was laid on natural ground beneath the lower tier which was more reliable as the supporting stratum. The steel-made volume for public rooms floats over the retaining wall and above the upper tier for better view. Private rooms are arranged along the lower tier where the atmosphere is calm, at a distance from the front road, within a reinforced concrete structure which functions as a counterbalance to the overhanging volume.

That is, instead of choosing a hierarchic structure of framework resistance system, a series of seamless structures of in-plane stress resistance system using steel sheets 12 mm thick made into panels with reinforcing ribs was set up to constitute a vessel-like steel shell structure. Although the first floor on the upper tier accommodates the entrance hall and one spare room, it mainly consists of voids –a sequence of external spaces that continue from the pilotis through the porch to the roof deck. The result is in fact much reminiscent of a ferryboat, in terms of both structure and layout, in which passenger decks and floating section are separated up and down with the vehicle decks in between. Save this picture!Cor-ten steel used for the structure of this house’s first floor and up is entirely untreated on the surface and bare, expected to be covered with stable rust in the future. Contrastingly, the interior surfaces –floor, wall, ceiling- are finished uniformly white with elaborate thermal insulation. Combined with their curved forms, it is intended that a neutral space with a feeling of loss of depth is created.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessAD Special: Herzog & de Meuron by Duccio MalagambaArticlesIn Progress: Blok K / NL ArchitectsArticles Share Architects: Katsuhiro Miyamoto & Associates Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/56953/ship-katsuhiro-miyamoto-associates Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Nishinomiya-shi, Japan 2006 ArchDaily Save this picture!+ 15 Share SHIP / Katsuhiro Miyamoto & Associates ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/56953/ship-katsuhiro-miyamoto-associates Clipboard Japanlast_img read more

The Coffou Cottage by Brininstool + Lynch is a 2,800sf residence in Michigan City, Indiana. The residence was completed in 2008 and was designed for the Coffou family as a natural retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city of Chicago. The northern shores of Indiana have long been a destination for those looking for a reprieve from city life, so the site was a natural selection for clients looking for a sense of privacy.Save this picture!© Christopher Barrett of Hedrich BlessingRecommended ProductsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensRenders / 3D AnimationVectorworksVectorworks ArchitectRenders / 3D AnimationEnscape3D Real-Time Rendering SoftwareEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsAfter selecting a site that met their needs, the clients sought out Brininstool + Lynch to design a modest and simple residence that capitalizes on the fantastic natural views of the site which included Lake Michigan to north and pastoral views to the South.  These diametrically opposite view opportunities resulted in two distinct architectural responses — the cottage was designed as a simple structure with a horizontal rain screen constructed of red cedar slats to privatize the northern entry and the southern façade is a wall of operable glass.  Not only does this approach maximize the desired pastoral views, it also maximizes solar gain in the winter.Save this picture!© Christopher Barrett of Hedrich BlessingIn keeping with the simplicity of structure, the floor plan of the 3-bedroom Coffou Cottage is logical and organized.  The public living spaces (kitchen, dining, and living areas) are arranged as a large open space and frame the views to the adjacent meadow and woods.  A traditional hearth fireplace is positioned in the front hallway, effectively separating the public and private sectors of the residence.  The primary material for the residence (interior and exterior) is Red Cedar, which was used to establish a material warmth and visual interest.  This material selection is amplified by the raw concrete used for the floor, which also serves as the primary heat mechanism through radiant flooring.Save this picture!© Christopher Barrett of Hedrich BlessingProject gallerySee allShow lessParc Paysager des bords de Seine Proposal / AWP & HHFArticles“São Paulo – South America Super Nexus” at Cities of Tomorrow TalksArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/157671/coffou-cottage-brininstool-kerwin-lynch Clipboard Photographs Coffou Cottage / Brininstool + Lynch Save this picture!© Christopher Barrett of Hedrich Blessing+ 6 Share CopyAbout this officeBrininstool + LynchOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHouses3D ModellingMichigan CityWoodResidentialUnited StatesPublished on September 20, 2011Cite: “Coffou Cottage / Brininstool + Lynch” 20 Sep 2011.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20Amsterdam Osdorp was built in the 1960ties and is since a few years in a process of urban renewal. The ambition of the program is to create a bigger variety of more individual housing types serving the middle class. Big parts of the existing building structures with mostly small apartments are demolished and replaced by bigger, more contemporary homes. One of the important questions that arose during the process is how to deal with the urban and architectural heritage of post-war modernism. Save this picture!© Architektur-Fotografie Ulrich SchwarzThe building project is situated in the southern part of the “Masterplan Zuidwest-Kwadrant”. The plan is developed and supervised by the De Nijl – a Rotterdam based firm for urban planning and architecture. Ambition of the master plan is to maintain the typical wide urban street profiles and the green collective courtyards by integrating parking garages under the new buildings. Save this picture!© Architektur-Fotografie Ulrich SchwarzThe building project takes the very relaxed urban setting as direct starting point for the organisation of the houses and tries to find a convincing solution for the parking. The result is a prototypical housing project that supports the more collective scale of Amsterdam Osdorp without suppressing the individual expression of the single homes. Traditional values of modernism get a new interpretation and more contemporary forms of living are stimulated.Save this picture!plan 01The building budget is with 850 € / m2 corresponding to the normal Dutch standard and is relatively limited for Amsterdam conditions. To create a good starting point for the materialisation the following strategy is forming the basis for the design. The span of the town houses is reduced to an acceptable minimum of 4,80m. By doing so the façade surface is in comparison to the standard 20% less. The plan is with a size of 12,50m ca. 30% deeper than the standard. Inside the house a lot of “cheap square meters” are produced and good conditions for energy efficiency are created. The produced spatial confinement is compensated by introduction of a complete glass façade and a double high living room.Save this picture!© Architektur-Fotografie Ulrich SchwarzThe necessary parking garage is not built under ground but at ground level to avoid waterproof concrete constructions and mechanical ventilation. The garage is realised as a cost-effective steel construction and put in front of the concrete construction of the town houses. The roof of the garage is used for private terraces. Save this picture!plan 03Within the created basis a search is started for an optimum organisation of the house. The living room continues over two levels and is on both sides related to a specific outside space. Save this picture!section 02The house is accessed from the west side through a front garden with a depth of 6 meters. The garden is surrounded by hedges but has a more public character stimulating the personal contact among the inhabitants. The double high kitchen-cum-living room is directly related to the front garden but also accessed through the private parking garage. An open stair connects the space with the living room on the first floor that is flooded by light from two sides. The living room is protected from views from out the public space by a closed balustrade and is related to an intimate private terrace of 30m2 offering a nice view on the green courtyard. Save this picture!© Architektur-Fotografie Ulrich SchwarzThe second floor is used for sleeping and working rooms. Partitions are movable and allow a variety of spatial organisations. An optional roof space on the third floor is offered during the selling procedure to the future inhabitants. The use of materials is relatively unpretentious and tries to support a more contemporary lightness of living. The inside spaces are extended towards the outside by big glass windows from floor to sealing. Therefore the town house project has no façade in the classical sense but presents itself as skeleton demonstrating the construction. Within the skeleton – behind the glass – the living is exhibited towards the public space. The glass façade is made of slightly reflecting sun protection glass guaranteeing climate comfort through the year without extra outside sunscreens. To save space the entrance door is realised as a special designed sliding door. Save this picture!© Architektur-Fotografie Ulrich SchwarzThe courtyard façade is dominated at the ground floor by the parking garage with an open metal mesh as façade system. In the future the mesh will be grown with ivy. The terraces on top of the garage are separated from each other by synthetic light-transmissive screens. The actual façade of the houses has big windows as well but is partly closed with a façade system of corrugated metal sheets. The same system is used for the head facades. Save this picture!section 01The interior design is very modest. Corridors are avoided to be able to save space. The stairs are directly positioned into the living room. Very economic standard stairs are used but covered by a special designed balustrade to integrate them into the total composition of the houses. For economic reasons the project is constructed out of an efficient collage of different building materials and technologies like concrete- and steel construction; aluminium- and wood windows; steel-, aluminium- and wooden doors and different synthetic materials. To create a quiet general impression for the building and to let dominate the space above the material all building elements are coated in RAL 9010. The housing estate gets optically dematerialized and presents itself as a classical white structure forming a perfect background for the living spaces. For this background the IKEA generation gets the opportunity to realise their dreams of a free and light way of living. Save this picture!© Architektur-Fotografie Ulrich SchwarzThis project is presenting a counter pole against the New urbanism movement that is at the moment very dominant in the Netherlands. The project is not the result of sentimental ideas about historic forms but a consequent result of the inner organisation of the living spaces. Also the prejudices against contemporary architecture are to prove wrong. Modern architecture has not to be more expensive than a more traditional way of building. Good modern architecture is also easy to sell – all houses have been sold within the very short period of just 2 weeks.Project gallerySee allShow less’BubbleDeck’ Technology at Harvey Mudd College / MATT ConstructionArticlesAD Round Up: Housing Part IXArticlesProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Montauk, NY, may appear to be like any other small seaside community upon first glance; however, it possesses unique characteristics that imprint lasting memories. The weather is unpredictable with banks of heavy fog and gusty winds. History is closer to folklore than truth with stories of the Montauk Project Conspiracy, German Submarines and, most recently, the Montauk Monster blurring the line between fact and fiction.Save this picture!© Michael MoranStructural remnants of the past such as a radar tower and bunkers are scattered throughout the landscape. Socially, there is a seasonal migration and mix of economic classes. The clients could have chosen to vacation anywhere in the world, but were lured to Montauk by the characteristics that make it unique from other areas. These characteristics embody the “Spirit of Montauk” and the clients challenged the architect to design a house that would embody and capture this spirit in the architecture.Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe house responds to the site context and strengthens the “spirit of place.” Formerly a horse ranch,the rolling green pasture of the site is located at one of the highest elevations in Montauk. The extensive program is terraced and embedded into the steep slope of the hillwithout compromising access to the exterior or natural light. Approaching from the south, the house appears to be two modest and separate one-story ranch houses.Save this picture!© Michael MoranCircling around to the north, the house unfolds to reveal a more extensive project. In this case, the conventional Montauk building typology of the low-pitched gabled roof is modified by the geometries of the allowable building envelope and height restrictions of the site. The geometric anomaly is apparent upon entry and it is unexpectedly clear that the ridge is offset and the walls converge, directing one’s view west to the lake. The optical illusion caused by the parabolic roof is visible on the South side and entices a second look, as do numerous other details.Save this picture!© Michael MoranArchitectural details throughout the house occur at unexpected moments. A wood screen covered bridge unifies the two separate cedar shingle clad volumes, allowing light into the grass paver courtyard below. The cedar screen of the bridge reads differently from day to night. It appears flat during the day, but, as darkness falls, light seeps out in an undulating pattern showing the wedge shape cut in the back of the boards. In front of several clerestory windows, a milled bluestone screen is similarly detailed. The stone appears weightless as alternating stones are removed from the stone wall pattern to let light into the guest area. These unexpected details reinforce the larger idea of capturing the unexpected. Save this picture!© Michael MoranFor the occupant there is no prescribed path of circulation, encouraging different encounters much like the social experiences of Montauk. One can enter beneath the bridge that frames the sky beyond and up a series of terraced planter steps revealing the pastoral rolling hills and ocean in the distance. This path draws a visitor directly into the landscape bypassing the house. One can also climb the exterior entry stair that directly connects to the interior stair, separated by a wall of glass.Save this picture!© Michael MoranOne can choose to enter into the house or continue the journey to the outdoor fireplace, dining area, and out to the pool. A guest staying at the house can privately come and go by a stone terrace that wraps the exterior of the guest area from the entry courtyard around to the pool without having to enter the house. The exploration resulting from unique circulation yields a different memorable experience for everyone. Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe house celebrates the “spirit of the place” of where it is located. With the rise of technology and rapid transmission of information through the internet, the identity of place can be lost. This project explores regionalism and the project evolved from the community it is located.Save this picture!© Michael MoranProject gallerySee allShow lessThink Space 2012 Programme: Past Forward CompetitionArticlesNew Housing for Researcher Workers / Praksis ArchitectsArticles Share Manufacturers: Hansgrohe, Lutron, Ann Sacks, B-K Lighting, Benjamin Moore, Corian® Design, De La Espada, DuPont, Edge, Elizabeth Dow, FRANKE, Ingo Maurer, Kawneer, LCN, LaMar Lighting, Modern Fan, Paola Lenti, Room & Board, SONOS, Savant, +18Selux, Suite NY, Toto, Tuuci, Wagner, Wever & Ducre, Zuma, Acor, Arcadia Custom, Bates Masi Architects, Circa Antiques, Ciuffo Cabinetry, Corian® Exteriors, Desiron, Duc Duc, Edge, Kallista, Vista-18 Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyHouses•Montauk, United States Save this picture!© Michael Moran+ 16 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/231481/genius-loci-bates-masi-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

It’s all about a project for a summer home, as a result of an order that from the beginning had precise conditions in terms of program: a big living room, connected to an office area; a service area with space for light meals attached to the kitchen; a private area with two small bedrooms and a suite with an incorporated sauna; a garage with an incorporated workshop space; a swimming pool with a big solarium; well illuminated interior spaces opened over the landscape; Formal soberness and a contained budget were also demanded.

Taking profit of a slight slope on the west side of the lot, the living room opens over a terrace unlevelled over the swimming pool and the solarium. The split between the living room and the bedrooms is made by a covered exterior space, which could be considered as a patio, near the terrace and in directly linked with the hall. Save this picture!© FG+SG Fernando Guerra, Sérgio GuerraThis house, being clearly contemporaneous in its formal approach, is also an attentive and sensible look over the housing phenomena and over the act of conceiving the domestic space. The final proposal, a permanent mark of a personal territory, appears from the logic refinement of this project. By conjugating program, place and time.

The resulting space adapted to its users and not the other way around. Save this picture!© FG+SG Fernando Guerra, Sérgio GuerraThe place, by understanding the landscape where it is inserted: a few kilometres from the sea, in a dense pine area, spotted by summer houses, (un)lined following twisting paths, where vulgarity prevails alongside a neo-vernacular adherence. In this “locus”, full of tall and slim pine trees, the presence of that house, which shapes, textures and extravagant transparencies are in permanent conflict with the nearby buildings, is a differenced sign, that invents a new place. Save this picture!© FG+SG Fernando Guerra, Sérgio GuerraThe time, by reducing to the minimum the formal e composition elements and used materials. The adoption of a project basis assumedly compromised with the contemporaneous rules. The recurring theme of projection plans and faces is the square, which is shown by the openings’ drawing. The duplication or subdivision of this base module, with no risk of becoming an obsession, is subtly contradicted by a series of project decisions, defining the domestic uses and living experiences. It’s the proper fluidness of space organization that differences the functional sectors and defines the boundaries between private and public “territory” within the house. Doors and corridors, frequently used on domestic architecture to circumscribe movements and conditioning looks, are here replaced by an inverted T-shaped space that is extended over the exterior forming a patio. Save this picture!© Patrick MonteiroThe double axial and convex condition of this space limits circulation between the living rooms and the bedrooms, at the same time, enlarges the visual camps without promoting indiscretions or forcing intimacy. The relations between the physical and visual continuity established between interior and exterior, achieved by the use of big glass windows on the living room and bedrooms’ level, contrast with the intimacy and opacity given to the service area and contribute to the comprehension and clarity of the space logic of this house and of its functionalities.Save this picture!Courtesy of Frederico Valsassina ArquitectosProject gallerySee allShow lessDaegu Gosan Public Library Competition Entry / JBADArticlesSeattle Center HUB (Hybrid Urban Bioscape) Competition Entry / AétrangèreArticles Share 2004 “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

This house was designed for a young couple with children in São Paulo. The clients already had a built structure; the challenge for the studio was to make a large reform to bring comfort and privacy in a dense urban context. The division of the space we proposed is quite simple: garage, service area and home theater in the basement, kitchen, dining and living room on the ground floor, bedrooms on the first floor. Even though we changed part of the structure, most of the openings were maintained, which brought up the idea of covering the whole surface of the house to bring unity.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe client is a stylist and stimulated us with the task of coming up with different possibilities to “dress” the house, we chose perforated metal panels, with a pattern based in the photograph of a leaf. In this way the proximity of the neighbors became less oppressive and the spaces create an interesting relation with the variations of the sun.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGOn one hand the panels filter the light and the regards; on the other we created a patio to bring light to the basement and a slit above the stairs to illuminate the vertical garden. The master bedroom has a generous opening towards the backyard, where the landscape creates a small oasis within the city. A water basin intensifies the sensation of openness in the garden.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSliding doors allow different modulations between the dining room, corridor and pantry, bringing flexibility to the house. In the living room large glass windows slide to integrate the space with the garden.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe Studio did the interior design project and as well designed some of the furniture, adapting objects from the 50’s inherited by the client.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGCasa K has a discrete urban insertion, appearing as a monolith, but it contains largely diversified spaces, with rich relations between intimate and public functions, always having in mind the serenity demanded by the clients.Project gallerySee allShow lessAndronico Luksic Mining Center / Enrique Browne y Arquitectos AsociadosSelected ProjectsCenter for High Yield – Rowing Pocinho / Alvaro Fernandes AndradeSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio Arthur CasasOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSão PauloBrazilPublished on January 29, 2014Cite: “K House / Studio Arthur Casas” 29 Jan 2014.

Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA

The Jesolo Lido Pool Villa is a custom designed prefabricated wood structure, and it was built and furnished in only 6 months. Energy-saving high standards have been applied to the shell to guarantee maximum comfort and almost zero costs throughout the four seasons. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniThe building features wood structures as a flexible and anti-seismic system which also avoids thermal bridges. The 31 cm of perimeter insulation, argon-gas insulated glass facades, 10 kw of photovoltaic panels installed on the roof and the interior / exterior led light fixtures co-operate in making a technologically contemporary building.  Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniBecause of the small dimensions of the plot, the design goal has been directed in leaving as much open space as possible. The indoor living area has transparent sides which opens towards two different-sized patios. The largest one, to the west, features a long swimming pool, which takes the entire length of the space, and two planted square inserts. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniAn olive tree is the main three-dimensional element in the patio and it’s placed next to the staircase which leads to the underground level, where the storage and technical rooms are located. The smaller patio, to the east, also features two planted inserts with another olive tree to counter balance the other side. The outdoor areas, as a client’s main request, needed to be low maintenance, so most of the surface was paved and the plants in the inserts where selected in order to live with the least care possible. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniThe 4-meter roof overhang to the west allows to have enough shading during the hot summer months and allows to place a covered outdoor seating and dining areas. Interiors are custom designed with typical JMA solutions, like audio/video walls, custom designed solid-surface kitchen, motorized roller shades which disappear into the dropped ceiling for maximum continuity of indoor-outdoor areas, integrated indirect lighting and home automated electrical system. Save this picture!© Jacopo MascheroniThe radiant floor heating system is powered with an electric heat pump which takes the energy from the photovoltaic panels. The air-conditioning system is fully integrated in the dropped ceiling with linear diffusers and hidden intakes. As always for JMA, the pursuit of simplicity and linear solutions represented a large part of the design work.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessEarthquakes – How Well Are We Prepared?EventConstell.ation / LIKEarchitectsSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Jacopo Mascheroni Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses Year:  Projects Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/488519/jesolo-lido-pool-villa-jm-architecture Clipboard Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMASave this projectSaveJesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA “COPY” Area:  320 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: JMA Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Lido, Italy Contractor: Manufacturers: Acqua Risolta, Oty Lightcenter_img Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeJMAOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesLidoItalyPublished on March 21, 2014Cite: “Jesolo Lido Pool Villa / JMA” 21 Mar 2014.

This housing prototype is located near the city of Santo Tome – Santa Fe, in a residential neighborhood, where the “neighborhood scale” and its habits predominates.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsThe project arises from being able to create a simple housing core, both in its design and its execution. The main objective was to build a small core that meets the basic functions of a home, so we decided to work with industrial materials that are easy to install and operate.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe core is modulated based on the predominant material, profiles, sheet metal, aluminum (12mts, 6m, 3m, 2.40 mts), which in turn is related to the modules of the materials used for interior finishes, drywall and wood. Thus it was possible to optimize each constructive element of the set, avoiding any type of waste and recycling as many components as possible.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliPallets used in gallery – expansion, several types of ceramics, recycled parquet flooring and their combinations constitute the finishes, allowing us to minimize construction costs. But the greatest optimization was achieved in the actual construction of the work. During free time, with the help of family and friends, with simple machinery such as a drill, a grinder and a welder, the assembly of each of the components was achieved, which makes this project very unique and valuable. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanFunctionally, the 36m2 core (12m long x 3m wide x 2.40 m high) consists of a kitchen with a living room and work desk, a bathroom and a master bedroom. The furnishings and maximum use of each space were crucial to develop as many activities inside, built-in functions that take advantage of every square inch, emptying the space in the center and using the sides for support. One cabinet contains the sink and kitchen items stored, it becomes a library and ends with a large supporting board. Being such a small space, we decided to work with the minimum possible amount of materials and colors, giving as a result 2 colors; natural wood floors and furniture, and white dominant on the rest.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliContinuous floor to ceiling windows allowed visual and spatial continuity between inside and outside, and in turn its module became part of the perimeter enclosure, achieving simplicity in the finishes.Save this picture!Cross SectionTechnically, the block rests on small precast concrete pillars (blocks), that are the only wet elements of the construction. From them arises the main structure of folded metal profiles, which supports the “box” of pipes that make up the perimeter of the house. The same structure supports the building envelope, exterior (plates) and interior (boards). The metal cladding was wrapped with injected spray and added to the system of cross ventilation, the suction of fresh air from the floor – removal by wind power make the weather inside. The entire project – not counting the aluminum frames and polyurethane spray – was built with unskilled work (ourselves) in 10 months.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliTechnically, the modules of the profiles, plates, pipes, allow each piece to fit into place, with the possibility of expanding its space to new modules, and in turn allow the reuse of its elements for such expansions, or to move the core to a new site.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliA linear, white volume elevated from the ground constitutes the exterior image, with the characteristic of each of the materials exposed: metal sheet, profiles, aluminum and glass; highlighting with the green surroundings, so that at each point of the interior spaciousness and continuity is achieved.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliIn short, we aimed in this project for an architecture that considers the authenticity of its own materials and their assembly, by providing a simple and clear reading, a relationship between the industrialized, the recycled and the natural; and above all that fulfills its main function, to generate a living space with few elements.Project gallerySee allShow lessEaster Eggs Designed By ArchitectsArticlesCasa G493 / Ana Lina KlotzmanSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Mía House / Matias Pons EstelSave this projectSaveMía House / Matias Pons EstelSave this picture!© Federico CairoliHouses•Santo Tomé, Argentina 2013 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/497485/mia-house-matias-pons-estel Clipboard Houses Copy “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMatias Pons EstelOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanto ToméArgentinaPublished on April 19, 2014Cite: “Mía House / Matias Pons Estel” [Casa Mía / Matias Pons Estel] 19 Apr 2014.

The former abandoned existing building located in Ovar, although in an advanced state of disrepair, revealed a high consolidation perspective, that came from the maintenance of its simple existing structure, such as it was. Structurally the building was not in bad condition, having only the necessity of repair and replace some wooden elements of the roof structure.Save this picture!© ITS – Ivo Tavares StudioThe wide use of wood in this type of ancient construction goes from the partitions ceilings and walls, to the floors, interior and exterior openings, paneling, doors, roof, and remaining structure floor levels: ground-floor and floor. It was needed a careful work approach, that allowed the protection of those elements, including its recovery and some replacements.Save this picture!SectionThe proposal combines the recover necessity of all the existing elements, introducing a three bedroom typology program, with the programmatic and typologic necessary adaptations. The house is mostly developed in its middle floor, maintaining the visual comfort characteristics, material and salubrity, gathering in this floor its main habitable compartments. On the lower level is the designated service space area, proposed location of spaces such has the laundry, the support small kitchen, storeroom and toilet, all fully concentrated along the north side of the building, freeing the remaining area for installation of workspace/office and multipurpose room.Save this picture!© ITS – Ivo Tavares StudioAs for the top floor, the changes are only at a construction level, with the revision of coverage, gutters and roofs, and introducing some new enhancements, like the 5 new skylights that improve natural lighting and ventilation, and also the thermal insulation and wood paneling coating of the attic, allowing a more homogeneous and recreational use of space.Save this picture!© ITS – Ivo Tavares StudioThe intermediate floor, already conditioned by the previously constructed matrix, suffered an additional function effort to place all its different areas – including rooms, living room and kitchen – in existing compartments, meaning that the new bathroom location moves to the old kitchen area. A new vertical circulation area appears uniting the 3 different floors, and in an area earlier occupied by the old access ladder and storage area.Save this picture!Floor PlanAll the intervention had a high need to safeguard and recovery all the possible existing elements, either on a structural level or at the maintenance of the functional formal and material matrix. A special care effort, building and applying all the infrastructure installation, was made, maintaining the original building characteristics, making it independent from all lighting, plumbing and HVAC facilities.Save this picture!© ITS – Ivo Tavares StudioAs for the new support created areas, the used material was the wooden structure with the lightweight, easy to assemble and essentially reversible, OSB panels or VIROC, not introducing any structural changes in the building.

The cutting-edge combination of green technology, renewables, and reclaimed materials help the 2,218 square-foot home meet the rigorous requirements for Emerald Star certification developed by the Built Green residential building program.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishThe Built Green certification program was developed to establish environmental standards for construction materials, energy efficiency, water use and indoor air quality. The voluntary program requires builders to follow a specific set of criteria to attain a Built Green rating ranging from 3-Star, 4-Star, 5-Star or Emerald Star.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishDwell Development is the only residential developer in Washington state that exclusively builds 5-Star Built Green homes and is leading the charge for green building certification in the region with the completion of the Emerald Star project, Dwell Development’s 100th certified home. Emerald Star certified homes are required to achieve net zero energy using a renewable source such as solar or wind. Other requirements include 70% reduction in water use, 90% reclaimed or FSC certified wood materials, and exceptional indoor air quality.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishIn order to meet Built Green’s renewable energy requirement, Dwell Development brought in local experts, Puget Sound Solar, to configure and install 6.6kW of photovoltaic panels on the roof. “The key to zero energy home building is to properly insulate and seal the home so heat and air are not lost through cracks in the building envelope,” says Anthony Maschmedt, owner of Dwell Development. The Emerald Star features advanced framing, insulation, and high-performance Euroclime wood-framed windows and doors creating an airtight seal impervious to leaks and city sounds.Save this picture!Building First Floor PlanInside, the Zehnder Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) system works around the clock to expunge stale air and fill the home with fresh, clean air, while also maintaining a comfortable temperature year-round. Showcasing Dwell Development’s commitment to pushing the envelope of sustainable building, the team installed a 450% efficient hot water heat pump from Australia to provide hot water and in-floor radiant heat, “this system is revolutionary for the industry. The Sanden uses 1kW of energy to generate 4.5kW of heat, that’s 78% less energy compared to traditional hot water systems. Not only is it better for the environment, its better for the homeowner’s bottom line.” says Anthony Maschmedt.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishReclaimed materials were carefully sought out to adhere to the Emerald Star certification requirements. The home’s framing package is FSC certified wood, which is a rare feat in residential building because finding a local supplier can be challenging and expensive. The home’s exterior siding is reclaimed Douglas Fir and naturally weathered steel roofing panels from a cannery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, which also act as a protective rain screen. The floors, stairs, and treads were built out of 100-year-old hand sewn mixed hardwoods from Montana creating a stunning combination. Countertops, cabinets and tile made locally from high-recycled content contribute to the home’s impressive inventory of eco-friendly materials.Save this picture!© Tucker EnglishBuilding an energy efficient home of this caliber requires a smart and strategic architectural layout. Dwell Development partnered with local firm, Caron Architects, to design the three-story home in Seattle’s vibrant Ballard neighborhood. The Dwell Development team carefully configured the roof and window placement to maximize solar gain without sacrificing modern aesthetics. The urban location fulfills another Built Green requirement; the home must be within a half mile of at least five essential services. This is a requirement meant to minimize the use of cars for everyday errands; but in the case of longer trips, the built-in EV charging conduit is there to support a more sustainable lifestyle.Save this picture!Building Third Floor PlanDwell Development’s holistic approach to sustainable building helps homeowners conserve resources and cut costs while also setting the bar high for other residential developers. As more and more homeowners are investing in green upgrades, Dwell Development’s homes come standard with energy efficient lighting, technology and appliances.

AD Classics: Kings Road House / Rudolf Schindler

first_imgPhotographs:  Joshua White PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessFloating Restaurant / Simo Freese ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSaint-Sauveur House / Hors-ChampsSelected Projects Share United States AD Classics: Kings Road House / Rudolf Schindler CopySecluded behind a screen of tall bamboo shoots in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, the Kings Road House may be considered the first home ever built in the Modernist style.[1] Designed by Rudolf Schindler in 1921, the architect’s use of tilt-slab concrete construction (highly innovative at the time) and an informal studio layout, set it apart from its contemporaries; indeed, the design would set the tone for other Modernist residential design for decades.+ 10During his architectural studies in his hometown of Vienna, Austria, Rudolf Schindler became intent on traveling to the United States to work with Frank Lloyd Wright. He sailed to New York only five months before the outbreak of the First World War; by the war’s end in 1918, he had achieved his goal and joined Wright’s practice. In 1919, Schindler married Sophie Pauline Gibling, a music teacher and political activist from Minneapolis who shared his distaste for traditional institutions – including marriage itself.[2]Wright invited the newlyweds to his Taliesin studio in Wisconsin in July 1920. The experience had a significant impact on both Rudolf and Sophie–the manner in which the house and its rural surroundings coexisted in harmony appealed to them, and they began to dream of building a new studio home for themselves.[3]Save this picture!Courtesy of The United States Library of CongressRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWindowsStudcoSteel Window Reveal – EzyRevealWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXSave this picture!Courtesy of Flickr user John ZacherleThe opportunity for Schindler to build his dream house arose when he and his wife moved to Los Angeles later that year. It was there that Schindler developed an acquaintanceship with the architect Irving Gill, who, in Schindler’s opinion, was the only local designer attempting to break away from the Spanish Colonial revival popular in Los Angeles in the early 1920s. Schindler was particularly fascinated by Gill’s work in tilt-slab construction, in which concrete walls were poured into molds and tilted into place on site after curing. The pastoral serenity of Wright’s Taliesin and the industrial efficiency of Gill’s tilt-slab concrete would ultimately come together in the designs Schindler began drawing up in November 1921.[4]Save this picture!Courtesy of The United States Library of CongressThe house was conceived not as a single-family residence, but as one to be shared with Marian and Clyde Chace. Schindler would serve as the architect for the project, while Chace acted as the builder. The partnership would therefore save the two couples money on both the labor and material costs of the project.[5] Further economy would be achieved by siting the house on a 200 square foot (18.6 square meter) lot on Kings Road in what was then unincorporated land between Beverly Hills and Hollywood. The planning phase lasted only two months, from November to December of 1921. The final scheme emerged after four design iterations, the last of which was updated to account for the impending birth of the Chace’s first child.[6]Save this picture!Courtesy of The United States Library of CongressSchindler’s scheme for the Kings Road House was a mixture of individual studios and communal living spaces. He characterized the design as a “cooperative dwelling for two young couples:” a private studio for each adult inhabitant, an entrance hall, an enclosed patio and a bathroom for each couple, two open terraces on the roof for sleeping, a single communal kitchen, and a guest apartment comprised the spaces within the house. The three-bladed pinwheel plan of the building also created several distinct garden spaces at both ends of the lot, carrying the private atmosphere of the interior into the gardens.[7]Save this picture!© Joshua WhiteThe Schindlers and Chaces broke ground on their new home on February 15, 1922.[8] All four future residents took part in the construction process, which centered on Schindler’s improvements on Gill’s tilt-slab system. Whereas Gill had prefabricated entire walls, Schindler used a system of four-foot long (1.2 meter) units, theoretically allowing them to be tilted into position by two men without the use of a crane. The seam between each slab was expressed in glass, breaking the monotony of the unfinished concrete and admitting light into the house.[9]Save this picture!Courtesy of Flickr user collectmomentsThe roof was supported by a comparatively traditional post-and-beam system. In the studios, one end of each redwood beam was supported by the concrete wall slabs; the other end was supported by two wooden posts. Nonstructural lumber, along with glass and canvas, was also used to create interior partitions and patio doorways. The resulting effect was that of heavy opacity and remarkable openness on opposite sides of each studio, with the garden foliage visible from almost every room in the house.[10]Save this picture!Courtesy of The United States Library of CongressConstruction proceeded quickly, with the house essentially completed by June 1922.[11] For two years, the Schindlers and the Chaces continued to develop their new home by installing new fixtures and purchasing furniture, neither of which they had a budget for after the initial construction of the house. Unfortunately, financial pressures continued to put strain on both couples, and after having a second child, the Chaces had to leave for Florida in July 1924. Less than a year later, Richard Neutra moved into the house along with his wife and son. Schindler’s marriage had already begun to erode before the departure of the Chaces, and while his new professional partnership with Neutra stimulated his burgeoning architectural career, his relationship with his wife only continued to decline. By 1927, Pauline split with her husband and moved out; the Neutras moved out in 1930, and though Schindler continued to lecture alongside Neutra, their relationship grew noticeably colder.[12]Save this picture!© Luke FiedererToward the end of the 1930s, Pauline returned to the house that she and her ex-husband had built. Schindler lived in the studios originally built for the two of them, while Pauline took up residence in the apartments formerly inhabited by the Chaces and the Neutras. The two shared the home as a divorced couple until Schindler’s death in 1953. In 1974, Pauline created a nonprofit organization, the Friends of the Schindler House, to help ensure the house’s preservation. The organization acquired the house in 1980 and began a program to restore the house based on its original completion in 1922. In 1994, a partnership with with the MAK/Austrian Museum of Applied Arts turned the Kings Road House into the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles – a public exhibition gallery in what is now considered West Hollywood.[13]Save this picture!Courtesy of The United States Library of CongressThe world has changed around the Kings Road House. What was formerly open flat land has been completely infilled; indeed, the house is now dwarfed to either side by multi-level apartment buildings. Despite this, the vision shared by Schindler and his wife in 1920 still prevails: hidden  behind its neighbors and its verdant curtain wall, the house continues to seamlessly merge indoors and outdoors into one calm, harmonious space.References[1] Smith, Kathryn.

The clients’ brief was clear and simple: a semi-permanent residence – something more than a weekender – for a couple, their dog and sporadic visitors. The site, located in Somers and virtually on the beach, offers panoramic views across Western Port Bay. Somers is a small beachside town established in the 1920s, stretching from the Coolart Wetlands to the Cerberus Naval Base on the Mornington Peninsula. Although just one hour’s drive from Melbourne, the area is still a relatively low key holiday place, characterised by elevated modernist fibro houses, unfenced gardens and native bushland vegetation.Save this picture!© Open Studio Pty Ltd.Save this picture!planSave this picture!© Open Studio Pty Ltd.Early concepts exploring the possibility of a single storey building were soon abandoned in favour of an elevated two-storey scheme to achieve a modest footprint and minimise the disruption to vegetation and topography. The majority of the site remains untouched, maintaining a continuous and informal landscape stretching from the street to the creek’s embankment. The entry approach is subtle and indirect. The house is placed on the highest point of the site, making the most of the spectacular outlook.Save this picture!SectionThe building form is an arrangement of stacked boxes that extend to create protected balconies and decks. Fully glazed ends are oriented towards the ever-changing sea views (to the South) or filtered sun through treetops (to the North). Custom-made windows with substantial hardwood frames are used throughout the house. Their configuration varies according to the room’s function. External materials and colours have been selected both to blend in with the natural vegetation and for pragmatic reasons (low maintenance, sustainability, bush-fire protection…)Save this picture!© Open Studio Pty Ltd.The program has been organised in three zones, a flexible and open living space on the upper floor, the main bedroom and guests’ bedrooms on the lower floor.

Slate Cabin is a writer’s retreat perched on the edge of Snowdonia National Park in Mid Wales. The building is set in a lush green valley that is ringed by barren, windswept hills and grazing pastures.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanIn response to this beautiful and yet harsh landscape, the cabin is a reductive black box that is anchored to the ground. It provides protection and respite to visitors who wish to escape the wind, rain and snow. Save this picture!© Jonathon DonnellySlate Cabin is inspired by the very bedrock of Wales – its slate. Wales is a unique landscape, scattered with stone-strewn mountains, abandoned quarries and old slate homes. These qualities encouraged us to base our design around this local and historically significant material.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricSlate Cabin is envisaged as a visual infrastructure for cataloguing Welsh slate. The exterior of the cabin is covered in local stone, which is fixed to the building like oversized shingles. These recycled slate tiles were reclaimed from nearby farms, and are mottled and pockmarked with weather and time. They result in a building that is at home in the hills, with a rugged and rustic appearance.Save this picture!© Jonathon DonnellyIn essence, the building is a simple, rectangular volume. The exterior is dark and muted, with a contrasting interior that is honeyed and warm. The spatial organisation is simple, with a single room for essential activities – sleeping, cooking, resting and relaxing – and a bathroom tucked behind.The main room is designed as a crafted piece of joinery. Subtle shifts and steps are used to differentiate between functions, creating rooms within a larger volume. The bed sits up on a raised platform, and pulls back to provide space for a seat and desk. The bed head, meanwhile, wraps around to house a built in seat and table. This acts as a cosy place to share meals, which can be cooked on a small wood-burning stove.Save this picture!© Jonathon DonnellyElsewhere, storage and shelves are artfully integrated. Stairs to the bed platform become a space to store books and shoes, while a shelf above the bathroom acts as a slot for hiking packs. All services are self-contained, which means that the cabin operates off-the-grid.Throughout the cabin, openings are carefully considered to capture small vignettes. Along one wall, a slot window frames a long, panoramic landscape of mountains and fields. Meanwhile, a continuous lantern of high windows bathe the space in natural light. Glancing up to these windows reveals glimpses of distant hills and spindly, swaying branches.Save this picture!© Jonathon DonnellyTo create a serene experience, the cabin is built of as few materials as possible. Soft, gentle textures intentionally contrast the stark stone exterior. Almost all of the surfaces are lined in birch plywood, which softly diffuses the light. The ceilings are draped in a woven hessian, a playful reference to the rural context.The architectural approach explores the tension between permanence and impermanence, the efficient act of prefabrication and the slow beauty lent by natural materials. The building bears the traces of time, and is designed to blend in to its rural setting.Save this picture!© Jonathon DonnellyProject gallerySee allShow lessGolden Pin Design Award 2017Built Projects & MasterplansCall for Submissions: A&D Trophy Awards 2017Call for Submissions Share Builder: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/874587/slate-cabin-trias-studio Clipboard ArchDaily RBW Carpentry Save this picture!© Jonathon Donnelly+ 12 Share Area:  13 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” CopyHouses, Small Scale•Wales, United Kingdom Architects: TRIAS Area Area of this architecture project 2017center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/874587/slate-cabin-trias-studio Clipboard CopyAbout this officeTRIASOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOtherSmall ScaleWalesEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on June 30, 2017Cite: “Slate Cabin / TRIAS ” 30 Jun 2017.

The project started from the desire to create a structure that is not only a refuge for man, but also a natural element of its environment, a mimesis of its surrounding. From the tree, for the tree.
The concept phase was developed for an architectural competition in 2014, and only a couple of year later it became a concrete project in the Italian Alps nearby Tarvisio (at the border with Austria and Slovenia).Save this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Laura Tessaro
The treehouses are two. They are developed on three levels, raising ten meters above the ground. The first of which hoover four meter above the ground and serves as a panoramic covered terrace. The second involves the arrival of the stairs (which continue following the profile of the “pine cone”, acting as a structural cage) that lead to the interior through two large windows with sliding doors.

This is a residential renovation project for a couple living in Nobeoka, Miyazaki Prefecture.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe existing building had served as a residence/factory when the client was a child. The original wood building had started as a residence/shop, and as the business grew, it eventually got expanded by adding extra spaces first and a storage space later, both made of steel structures. As a result, it became a building complex composed of three blocks in the end. It is a two-story building made of a combination of wood and steel structures, with the building area of 230m2 and the total floor area of 440m2. The clients made the decision to renovate the existing building instead of reconstructing it. Initially, this project started as part of a special program organized by a Japanese magazine BRUTUS, which invited readers who wanted to renovate their houses as well as several selected architects, and matched each reader to his/her favorite architect to design the renovation. When we received a postcard from the client outlining his request, we looked up street views of the project site on Google Maps and couldn’t believe the scale of the building: we wondered, “is this really a renovation and not a reconstruction?”Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Takumi OtaAfter that, we met and talked with the client and his wife and impressed by their passion to treasure and carry on the legacy of the building used by their family and employees for a long time. As we proceeded with the renovation plan, we discussed further details and found out that the total floor area needed for the client’s life would be as small as 170 m2, even if we accommodated all the requested elements. It meant that we had considerable excess floor areas in relation to the whole.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaAlthough the fact that we had “more floor areas than necessary”, which would never happen in urban areas, was unfamiliar to us, we re-organized the spaces by locating necessary places while inserting voids here and there. And these voids would be kept there in expectation of accommodating the client’s future passion.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThese voids could not be kept as they were, but they required some costs for repairs and reinforcements, which were considered as a future investment. Keeping these voids is an experimental challenge in a way, because we don’t know exactly what kind of future passion may arise. Yet, such voids, created somewhere between the interior and the building envelope, generates a dynamic space that raises expectations for something to happen. I am not the only one who feels passion for such unknown possibilities. We are looking forward to seeing what will happen here in the future.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaProject gallerySee allShow lessShenzhen Talent Park / AUBESelected ProjectsPalmetto Library / Houser Walker ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Construction: Area:  440 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects House in Nobeoka / Schemata Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/886055/house-in-nobeoka-schemata-architects Clipboard Photographs Architects: Schemata Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Takumi Ota+ 19 Share ArchDaily Japancenter_img Year:  2017 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSchemata ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNobeokaJapanPublished on December 27, 2017Cite: “House in Nobeoka / Schemata Architects” 26 Dec 2017.

Renovation of a semi-detached house situated in the Venice province, centered within a large parcel in the rural area of the city of Jesolo.The aim of providing a comprehensive response to the natural context prompted to strong and dynamic design expressions.Save this picture!© Alessandra BelloThe roof-covering outline characterizes the design trend. The structure has externally been cleaned up from all technical elements, such as cornices and drainpipes, of which it is usually composed of and that have been integrated within it, contributing to obtain a simple volume of linear and essential profiles.Save this picture!Basement SchemeThanks to thorough cut-offs of the masonry, the ground floor perimeter was radically transformed into a continuous glazed space that dialogues directly with the immediate outside. The contribution of glass surfaces characterizes the entire intervention, particularly for the spa and wellness area that, with a large fixed window, is visually connected to the underside of the swimming pool, situated in the external garden.The dialogue is reaffirmed by the choice of a uniform and continuous stone paving for both interior and exterior spaces, as well as the use of wide glazed walls which, playing with light and reflections act as thin diaphragms that never constrains and encloses the inside.Save this picture!© Alessandra BelloContrasted to the molding of ‘breathing’ and open volumes of the living spaces, which are allowed to stretch and encompass the outside landscape, the night area follows requirements of introspection and privacy, almost in antithesis with the ground level and retaining the existing fenestration.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe central room consists of a long open space, featured  by the presence of the false ceiling composed of wood triangle-shaped listels.

BL 2 House – Hammer Cabin / UMWELT

first_imgArchDaily Save this picture!© Felipe UgaldeText description provided by the architects. The BL II house or “Hammer Cabin”, as the owners call it, has an area of 32 square meters and is composed of an open space with a mezzanine room and a bathroom with exterior access. The house works as an independent cabin for guests or for rental. Therefore both its position on the lot and its configuration in plant and section establish privacy relations with respect to the main house and also the necessary climatic protection. The northern and southern elevations are opaque for wind and rain protection while the west façade opens towards the ocean sheltering from the sun by an eaves. The main structure of the walls is projected on the terrace enhancing its use, appropriation and protection.Save this picture!© Felipe UgaldeRecommended ProductsMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Felipe UgaldeSave this picture!Elevation – SectionSave this picture!© Felipe UgaldeProject gallerySee allShow lessMVRDV Proposes Respectful Renovation for 19th Century Heritage Building in Wrocław, …Architecture NewsVilla Comano / Attilio Panzeri & PartnersSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903132/bl-2-house-hammer-cabin-umwelt Clipboard Chile Houses 2017 CopyHouses, Small Scale•Cáhuil, Chile BL 2 House – Hammer Cabin / UMWELT Projects “COPY” Area:  32 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903132/bl-2-house-hammer-cabin-umwelt Clipboard Photographs “COPY” Year:  BL 2 House – Hammer Cabin / UMWELTSave this projectSaveBL 2 House – Hammer Cabin / UMWELTSave this picture!© Felipe Ugalde+ 9Curated by Diego Hernández Share Photographs:  Felipe UgaldeCosntruction:Constructora AltamareaStructural Calculation:Francisco MillaPrice:19 UF/m2Architects In Charge:Ignacio García Partarrieu, Arturo ScheideggerCity:CáhuilCountry:ChileMore SpecsLess Specs Architects: UMWELT Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeUMWELTOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOtherSmall ScaleCáhuilChilePublished on October 03, 2018Cite: “BL 2 House – Hammer Cabin / UMWELT” [CASA BL 2 / UMWELT] 03 Oct 2018.

This project commenced just as the economy was beginning to recover from the recession. The aim was to come up with a residential development that was the different from the one widely used in the area and base on an obsolete partial development plan. The old plan proposed blocks with a wide width and interior courtyards for ventilation, but where the orientation of the homes and the organisation of the free areas were not a priority. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaTo amend the plan, a detailed study had to be drafted, setting out a different type of block, one that was ccompatible with the general plan in force and wich would help to create a new city model. To achieve this, a more efficient and sustainable volumen than the traditional “H” block with a courtyard was proposed. The two main objetives were to prioritise the orientation of the homes and to create a free space with as many facilities as possible.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaHabitat Bulever was therefore conceived as a residential complex laid out around a free space with an urban scale, with a square comparable in size to the well-know landmark of Patio Banderas beside the Alcázar in Seville. The building is organised around this square. It forms the quiet and isolated nucleus in which the private life of the development unfolds… similar to how people live not so along ago in corral communal dwellings, like one big family. A building model with a 12-metre bay was designed. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThis allowed the construction on off loor-through apartments with double ventilation and light, where all living areas are placed to the best orientating façade, thus giving the lunges an terraces the best sunning and lightingn. Three materials confer its characteristic and identifying image to the building. Clinker brick for the façades, concrete for the exposed structure and sheet metal latticework for the protection of kitchens and stairs.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe changing of light and shadow on the texture of these three materials gives a rich image that evolves along the day and which Habitat Boulevar is being recognized. This perception of textures is also change according to distance … nearly you can see the careful execution of the brick tile, the touch of concrete or the perfection of the geometry of the sheet… but as soon as one moves away from them they are diluted like the threads of a tapestry to give way to the forms that show the large volumes of the building.

El Barrial is an authentic experience of resting and living together as a family. The project is located in the “El Barrial” area, in the municipality of Santiago, Nuevo León. Away from the city, the noise and stress disappear little by little along a dirt road until you get lost in the middle of the forest on a hill with panoramic views of an infinite valley of trees and mountains. Undoubtedly a destination that inspires peace and connection with nature. Finding the perfect balance between the needs of the client and the site gives the project a unique essence.Save this picture!© The RawsSave this picture!© The RawsAn essence dictated mainly by nature that becomes the main protagonist of the project from any point of view. It is impossible not to be amazed by the views through the large windows that characterize the architecture of the cabin, scenarios that motivated us to give the priority to nature at all times. The design proposal focused on taking the exterior landscape as a priority, owning it, and bringing it inside.Save this picture!© The RawsThe contrast was established between a rustic style that refers to nature and an industrial style that adapts to the basic needs of the family in a simple way, without ever competing with our main character. The materials were specially selected to achieve this harmony and highlight the properties of the site. Giving life to a design of a rustic-industrial style in which natural elements such as raw wood, stone, and bare concrete predominate giving a feeling of warmth alongside colder elements such as black ironwork. We created spaces where rigid shapes merge into planked concrete, rectangular wooden panels, and reticulated ironwork.Save this picture!© The RawsSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© The RawsComplementing them with organic shapes in the textiles, accessories, natural wood pieces, and furniture that were exclusively designed for the project taking into account the practicality and easy maintenance of each space. The architectural program of El Barrial is the expression of a modern cabin divided into two independent volumes connected only by nature, thus separating social life from private life. The first cabin focuses on social spaces and amenities under the ideology of an open floor plan. Incorporating the living room, dining room, and kitchen in the same space, in direct contact with the terrace and the pool.Save this picture!© The RawsThe main benefit of using an open floor plan concept is to unite different activities within the same space, which encourages comfort and functionality but above all greater family coexistence. In addition, it allows better natural lighting and the illusion of a larger space that connects and expands with the exterior landscape. The second cabin, unlike the social volume, seeks privacy and shelter. It is governed by a corridor as the main axis, which has two main sources of natural lighting, in one end through the access door and at the other end with a small patio that has become one of our favourite images.Save this picture!© The RawsSave this picture!© The RawsDuring construction, we collected pieces of natural wood of different sizes to transform them into an artistic element that we later decided to use as the perfect finishing touch, placing a handmade wooden sculpture in the centre of the patio that contrasts in materiality with the gabions of the retaining wall at the back. The emblematic hallway plays with light and shadow to convey a feeling of intimacy since it functions as a distributor to the family bedrooms. Save this picture!© The RawsOne for the children with two bunk beds at the back, one for visitors and the master bedroom with a privileged view of the valley, the same view that it shares with the bathroom, which inspired us to open up the entire area to turn it into a personal spa. We focus on giving life to a project that allows its visitors to forget about the city to connect with the immensity of nature in an environment of total peace and rest. Always remembering this game of contrasts that characterizes the style of the project. A perfect balance between form and function.

Mazanka is an apartment in a Kyiv skyscraper with a view of the Dnipro river, where ancient construction technologies were used. In the Ukrainian language, мазанка (mazanka) means a small village house built of wood, clay, and reeds. The name comes from the word мазати (mazaty) — to cover something with a layer of clay. Mazanka apartment is a dialogue of our architects with the past. And its result is a step towards the originality of modern Ukrainian design and Ukrainian culture as it is. The client of the project is a young woman who shares our views of a home as a place of strength. She chose our studio to fulfill her long-held dream — eco-housing with natural materials and modern technologies being harmoniously combined, and the design sophisticatedly emphasizing the uniqueness of the space. It was important for us not only to create an interior that will meet these requirements but also become near and dear to the customer.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinFirst off, we designed an open but thematically zoned space for the owner’s favorite home routine: yoga, dancing, cooking. Therefore we combined the kitchen, living room, and balcony but left a fairly clear thematic division due to different textures and materials. The kitchen is located in the central area of the apartment. Ribbed cabinets make the space rhythmic. The granite tabletop island balances the jug lamps that attract attention with their playful form variation. The lines of the kitchen are airy and soft.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Serhii KadulinThe living area is almost an art object. The cube is decorated with plaster repeating the surface of ancient clay huts. The walls are covered with a special clay solution to get the desired volume. The relief was created by the element itself: when drying, the material had cracked and formed unique patterns. Here, the main beholder of such a force of nature is the Ochi lamp created by Makhno. In general, all the lighting in the apartment, except for the technical one, was created by Makhno Studio. Above the dining area, there is a handmade vine lamp.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinThis craft was also popular in our culture, but now it took us several months to find a master who can create a work of such complexity. Above the kitchen island, there is a set of four jug lamps that were specifically created for this apartment. In the bedroom, there is a ceramic Makiivka lamp from the Inside. Out collection that topped the trendsetter list by ArchDaily at iSaloni 2019. The bedroom space is also open and connected to the bathroom. They are partitioned by translucent doors. The colors and textures of the living room endure in the sleeping area but perform differently. “I am in high spirits. My guests are especially fascinated by the clay “cave” as something unusual and impressive. As for me, it feels here like somewhere in the middle of wild untouched nature. I believe that the Ukrainian contemporary style will conquer even more hearts”, says Anastasia, the owner of the apartment.Save this picture!© Serhii KadulinProject gallerySee allShow lessKOW House / Edouard BrunetSelected ProjectsBugambilias House / Taller Mexicano de ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Kyiv, UkraineLocation to be used only as a reference.

Because it primarily supports small to medium size charities, many without a professional fundraiser, the Foundation was keen to ensure that its website succeeded in conveying all the necessary information and advice on submitting a grant application.Louise Harley, head of communications at the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales, said: “We want to make the application process very straightforward by providing as much information as possible in advance of the initial call to us, thus maximising charities’ use of their time and chances of success. By profiling previously funded charities we hope to inspire other charities through reading about successful work.” Advertisement  47 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

New tool to help predict success or failure of fundraising campaigns

first_img Howard Lake | 20 March 2008 | News New tool to help predict success or failure of fundraising campaigns Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Individual giving AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Marketing and fundraising consultancy The Kinetic Partnership is launching a new service this month that aims to predict the likely success or failure of fundraising campaigns.The Marketing Capability Assessment Tool (M-CAT) looks at how prepared organisations are to carry out fundraising activities and examines internal and external factors that will affect their effectiveness. In doing so it helps charities assess the level of risk, and shows where the best opportunities for expansion lie.For example it asks whether an organisation is ready to expand its fundraising and communications, how sustainable existing income lines are, why is now the time to invest, and what risk assessment has been carried out.The M-CAT uses a matrix to assess and score a charity’s position and capacity, and results are presented through radar graphs which indicate clearly what action needs to be taken to expand fundraising successfully.Rob Wells, Senior Partner at Kinetic said: “This service has been developed in response to fundraisers constantly asking me how they could tell if their carefully crafted communications and fundraising plans would actually work”.The M-CAT has already been successfully trialled with small and medium-sized charities and NGOs in UK as well as internationally.The service is initially available on a consultancy basis, but Kinetic hopes to produce a self-assessment version later this year.www.thekineticpartnership.org  19 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Advertisement Charity-advisory website Intelligent Giving has named the 10 ‘best’ charity Christmas cards. Top of the list is Mencap’s “Tree of Hope”.Intelligent Giving surveyed over 200 charity websites and judged the Christmas cards on design, the percentage of money going to charity, and the general rating that Intelligent Giving gives them on its charity profiles.James Asfa, Intelligent Giving researcher, in his review of the Tree of Hope card, said: “Our favourite card states that at least 80 pence in every pound raised through its sale goes to Mencap. That’s as profitable (and transparent) as it gets. Appropriately for the charity, the design was the result of a competition to encourage artists with a learning disability to display their creative flair.”The Tree of Hope card was chosen from Mencap’s annual Christmas card competition, which is open to people with a learning disability of any age.The rest of the top 10 were:2. Cards for Sreepur Village, from the Sreepur Village shop.3. ‘Spoilt for Choice’, for Gift of Sight, from Card Aid.4. ‘Christmas Eve’, for the Alzheimer’s Society, from Cards for Good Causes.5. ‘Stag in the Snow’, for the National Trust, from the National Trust Shop.6. ‘Dazzling Tree’, for Diabetes UK, from the Diabetes UK Shop.7. ‘Snowman with scarf’, for the British Red Cross, from the Red Cross Shop.8. ‘Santa’s Party’, for Cancer Research UK, from the Cancer Research UK Shop.9. ‘Bear Cub’, for Mind, from the Mind Shop.10. ‘Mini Knitted Bears’, for Oxfam, from the Oxfam Shop.Intelligent Giving does acknowledge that “the world of charity Christmas cards is complex”. It is not always possible to put a financial value on claims such as “All profits from the sale of our cards go towards our work.” Also, charities that manufacture their own cards can take on more risk than if they were to use retailers’ own brand cards, but then stand to make a bigger return.www.intelligentgiving.com/articles/features/the_best_charity_christmas_cards  141 total views,  1 views todaylast_img read more

Hers is an inspiring example of the long-lasting social value that a company can deliver under the right leadership.”Zarine Kharas commented, “I am humbled and honoured to receive the Albert Medal on Justgiving’s behalf. The internet has been, and continues to be, a revolutionary force, and we are proud to have harnessed some of its power for the benefit of charities, especially the smaller ones.” Since early 2001, the site’s 7m users have collected over £400m for 6,700 charities. The company expanded in to the USA in 2003, where it is known as Firstgiving.At a lecture to mark the award on April 22nd, Zarine will argue that companies exist primarily to create social value, not maximise profits for shareholders. In Justgiving’s case, all profits have been re-invested in to the business and investors have yet to make a return.She will also argue that hierarchies and rules get in the way of innovation by holding people and organisations back, rather than keeping them accountable. She will tell how Justgiving is learning to work differently, with people working in teams and managing themselves.Recent recipients of the award include Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 2002 for his outstanding contribution to the World Wide Web and Professor Stephen Hawking in 1999 for making physics more accessible.For more information, contact Jonathan Waddingham at Justgiving on 0207 067 0923 or [email protected] Howard Lake | 9 April 2009 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Two fundraising campaigns win IPA Effectiveness Awards

first_imgDepaul UK: increasing homeless charity donors through iHobo mobile appAgency: PublicisFor a number of years Depaul UK has attempted to recruit younger donors to counteract its shrinking donor base. Previous press and radio campaigns yielded only modest results. In 2010 Depaul UK developed the iHobo iPhone application that designed to reach a younger audience. Despite no paid media coverage the app was downloaded 600,000 times, delivering 95 times more new donors than previous campaigns. It has added 1,021 young people to the Depaul UK database who have a potential combined lifetime donation value of as much as £1.5 million.Torsten Schuppe, Marketing Director, UK and Ireland, Google, commented: “This is a fascinating use of a mobile application with an amazing short-term effect. The lowest budget to ever enter the Awards, this paper is a brilliant example of how to deliver impressive results on small funds.”www.ipaeffectivenessawards.co.ukYou can follow the conversation about the awards on Twitter athttp://twitter.com/#!/search/%23IPAEff Marie Curie Cancer Care: recruiting cancer charity collectorsAgency: DLKW LoweMarie Curie devoted a small part of its 2010 advertising budget to ask people to collect money for their Great Daffodil Appeal, rather than simply give money. Celebrity supporters produced two radio adverts and online content, asking the public to sign up an hour of their time to collect. This resulted in 5,219 collectors being recruited, who then went on to generate an additional income of £634,583, delivering a payback of £2.45 for every £1 spent.Duncan MacCallum, Founder, MacC Comms, said: “The judges felt inspired by the fantastic new insight deployed in this paper turning givers into collectors. The return for Marie Curie was astounding, and even more impressive given the significant long-term value of the collectors for the charity.

Airport plastic bottle donation scheme raises funds for charities

first_img Frankfurt Airport is turning the plastic bottles disposed of by passengers at the security checkpoint to good use. It has installed a bottle recycling system in which not only is the plastic sent off for recycling, but the income from the sale of the plastic is donated to charity.Given aviation security regulations, tens of thousands of bottles, some half-empty, some still full, that have to be handed in at the security checkpoint. In many cases, the recyclable material is lost to landfill.But passengers in Terminal 1 Departures at Frankfurt can be confident their bottles will be put to good use. The full deposit fee on the plastic containers is donated to WWF, Aviation Without Borders, foodbank charity Frankfurter Tafel, or homelessness charity Franziskustreff.Veronika Iseler from the Product and Process Development division of Frankfurt Airport’s Terminal Management commented that public feedback on the recycling system has been very positive. She notes however that the facility is used more by German passengers. “This is understandable” she said, “because Germans are more familiar with the deposit system than some of our international visitors. We are trying to attract the attention of our non-German guests by improving the positioning of the facility and by providing signs; as a matter of fact these measures are already bearing fruit.” Airport plastic bottle donation scheme raises funds for charities  50 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Tagged with: corporate Donated goods Recycling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Howard Lake | 3 October 2013 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

It isn’t within the law to unduly incentivise people to give their consent to marketing calls, nor typically to require consent to marketing as a condition of subscribing to a service.”The ICO has also announced that it is working on other new guidance including an updated Privacy Notices Code, a checklist for selling and buying data, and standard wording for organisations to use when collecting personal data for marketing purposes.The updated guidance can be downloaded from the ICO.

Tax relief on donations too often skewed towards wealthy, says report

first_img Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation Research / statistics tax AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Tax incentives encourage people and businesses to give more to charity but are too often skewed in favour of the wealthy and causes favoured by governments, according to an international study by the Charities Aid Foundation.Donation States, a study of 26 developed and emerging economies, compares the way tax incentives for charitable donations are offered across the world. It reveals that two-in-three countries worldwide offer tax incentives on charitable donations and that people are 12 per cent more likely to have given to charity in the past month if they live in a country that offers tax relief on donations than if they live somewhere which does not.It also found that incentives are widely used by governments to encourage giving to charity, and help drive up both the number of people giving to good causes and the value of donations. In fact, the report shows that the value of tax incentives appears to have a direct impact on how much people give, with more money given when the value of tax incentives increases. Incentives are most effective in nations with higher rates of income tax.However, it warns that regular basic rate taxpayers often have less access to generous incentives than wealthy people and companies, with red tape in some countries creating major barriers to people on moderate incomes taking up tax reliefs.According to the report, corporations tend to get more and bigger tax incentives than individuals, with 77 per cent of countries offering tax incentives to businesses making charitable donations, compared to 66 per cent offering incentives to individuals.The report’s author, CAF international policy manager Adam Pickering, said:“Tax incentives are worth many billions of pounds to good causes worldwide and it is a great thing that there is such a strong international support for charitable giving being incentivised in the tax system. Such incentives are not the biggest motivation for people to give but it is clear that they can be an effective way for governments to encourage people and businesses to support civil society.”The report also lays out a series of recommendations for making tax incentives schemes effective, which includes making incentives for all causes equal, as well as the same for both individuals and companies where possible, and making claiming incentives easy.

But it’s a tool that’s still largely untapped…“Our goal is to give the charities accepted by the Transform Foundation an insight into what’s achievable through Facebook and the skills to manage campaigns themselves in the future.” UK charities can now apply for £5,000 grants to be spent on ‘innovative’ Facebook advertising campaigns. The funding comes from Transform Foundation, the charity that provides small and mid-sized charities with funding, research and training to transform their digital presence and increase their sustainable fundraising.Transform Foundation already offer grants for charities to redevelop their websites. Google already offers up to $10,000 per month of free advertising to eligible charities through its Google for Nonprofits programme. So this funding fills a gap for those charities keen to explore or extend their advertising on Facebook.Even better, the funding programme comes with an optional legacy campaign advertising element.Rolling out in 2017Competition for the funds is likely to be tight because the Foundation’s Facebook Advertising Grant Programme will be rolled out on a monthly basis throughout 2017. Each month five £5,000 grants will be allocated to UK charities , following an initial month of five pilot grants.Applications for the Facebook Advertising Grant Programme are now open.There are restrictions of course. For example charities must have a Facebook presence with over 1,000 Facebook likes.Free managed legacy advertising campaign serviceCharities that received the funding can also make use of an optional free managed campaign service to help them make the most of the opportunity by focusing on using Facebook adverts to attract legacy donors.This service includes the strategy, content creation and advertising monitoring for each charity’s Facebook campaign funded by the grants. It is provided by Farewill, the Transform Foundation’s preferred partner for this project. The digital will-writing service manages Facebook campaigns for a number of charities. Dan Garrett, CEO, Farewill, commented: Advertisement  635 total views,  8 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis223 What Transform Foundation doesTransform Foundation’s grant programmes has two aims:raising more funds for each funded charityand using comparative data to benchmark best practice in online giving for the success of the sector.As a result, it knows that its first website grant programme has resulted in charities raising more than £1.3 million in its first year.David Melville, Chair of the trustees of Transform Foundation, explains:“Transform Foundation was set up to empower small and mid-sized charities to transform their digital presence and capability to raise money online by teaming up with proven experts in the digital world. In Farewill, we have secured a partner that fits that profile and in Facebook, the world’s leading social network, charities have an unrivalled platform to spread their word and raise funds. This year, we will be announcing more strategic partners and grant programmes to help charities maximise their fundraising and impact online.”Melville has a long background in digital. He was Legal Director of Freeserve prior to its flotation and ultimate sale to Orange (now EE) for over $2.3 billion in 2000, and has also headed up the legal teams at Argos and Amazon. Applications for the Facebook Advertising Grant Programme opened yesterday.last_img read more
