Saudi Arabia accused of oil output increase

first_img Saudi Arabia accused of oil output increase Tuesday 18 January 2011 8:06 pm whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share THE International Energy Agency (IEA) said yesterday that OPEC leader Saudi Arabia had stealthily boosted output to cool an oil price rally, while OPEC accused the agency of providing inconsistent oil price views.Tensions between oil exporter group OPEC and the agency, representing industrialised consumers, have risen as Western countries put pressure on the Saudis and their allies, the only producing nations with spare capacity, to meet unexpectedly robust demand that has driven crude up near $100 a barrel.“It appears Saudi Arabia has been making more crude available to the market in the past six months, judging by export data from independent tanker trackers,” the IEA, which advises 28 countries on energy policy, said.On Monday the IEA said current oil prices were alarming. Yesterday OPEC’s secretary general, Abdullah al-Badri, produced an unusually harsh statement criticising the IEA for inconsistency in being willing to add to oil prices by imposing taxes, then asking OPEC to curb prices to safeguard the world economy.“In 2009 when the oil price was lower, the IEA had advised its members that they needed to increase petroleum taxes,” he said.

RBS 6 Nations – Wales: Five things we’ve learned

first_imgThe Welsh scrum had a rare off day in Paris. Wales won four, but lost three – a completion of just 57.1%. Even more unusual was the player who was deemed responsible for the fragility – Adam Jones was penalised four times against France. But whilst the Welsh scrum struggled and some of the blame will undoubtedly fall on certain players, the playing surface at Stade de France must share some of the responsibility. The turf was dangerously unstable. It looked like the French supporters had released a mole on to the field instead of a cockerel. It was so bad that a decision to play passive scrums wouldn’t have been out of the question. Of course, Wales can have little complaint, the surface in the Millennium Stadium has had its problems but compared to the pitch in Paris it looked like the Prairies of North Dakota.Ryan Jones bossed itNo entry: Modern defences are now too effectiveIn the week leading up to the game all of the attention focused on who would play at seven. As it happened the biggest impact was made by the man who wore six – Ryan Jones. Jones was simply superb against France and it was exactly the sort of performance that Wales required. Jones was Wales’ joint-top ball carrier – along with Andrew Coombs who once again put in a valuable showing. But these weren’t the sort of showpony carries that will be pinged around Twitter – it wasn’t that sort of game.  Jones’ carries were short and powerful – the sort that suck up defenders and their energy levels, and rarely result in a turnover. Ryan Jones may no longer be the first name in the starting line-up, but he is undoubtedly the first name on the bench. Wales need his leadership and experience more than ever. Modern Rugby is boringTaking nothing away from Wales’ victory in France, but modern rugby can be a desperately drab affair. The word ‘modern’ should have positive connotations.  ‘Modern’ is a step forward, a progression.  Yet in many ways the modern game has taken rugby backwards – particularly when it comes to entertainment. Defensive systems have become so effective that they are now dominating and destroying the game at the same time. Whilst we all admire teams having a 90%+ tackle completion, as Wales did on Saturday, it is not the reason why people pay £80 for a ticket. We all want rugby to progress, but maybe the game could do with taking a little step backwards – literally. Making the defensive line sit back a metre from the base of a ruck or maul, unless on the try line, may be a good start. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Collective relief: Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies show what the Wales win meant after consecutive eight lossesBy Paul WilliamsThe wait is finally overWALES’ WIN against France cannot be summed up by numbers and statistics – even though, scrum apart, the numbers were in the black. The Welsh lineout ran at an impressive 90.9%. Wales had parity with possession and territory and Leigh Halfpenny once again kicked everything that he placed on the tee. Wales’ defensive stats were heartening – the tackle completion stood at 90.8%. Wales also reduced France to just seven separate visits beyond their 22 yard line and even when the French did manage to enter the redzone Wales didn’t concede a single point as a result. However, all this information is superfluous. As is the fact that France played poorly, very poorly. Wales won. The run of eight straight losses is over. End of.  If we are looking for an objective measure for the significance of Wales’ win against France, then measure the carbon dioxide levels in Wales at around 6.40pm on Saturday evening – a nation’s collective sigh of relief was immense.Accomplished: Biggar managed the game’s last quarter wellDan Biggar deserves praiseDan Biggar is one of those players who’s judged on his negatives rather than his positives. Hopefully this will not be the case after his performance against France. Biggar played well on Saturday. Granted, there were a few errant kicks, but overall Biggar’s tactical kicking was good – he regularly placed kicks into the opposition’s 22, three or four metres from the touchline, forcing the French covering defenders to kick or carry into touch. He defended his channel admirably, making eight tackles and missing just one – only one tackle less than Toby Faletau. But by far the most impressive aspect of his game was the way he controlled the last quarter. Supporters have been crying out for an outside-half who can close out a game in the last ten minutes – Biggar did just that. And of course there was the delicate chip kick that led to George North’s try. If Dan Carter, not Dan Biggar, had executed the match-winning chip then the plaudits would be flooding in. The name may be different but the reaction should be the same. As they say, en France, bien joué Dan Biggar.The Welsh scrum struggled – unusually Wales’ hooker Richard Hibbard (C) is tackled by France’s flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo (L) and France’s centre Mathieu Bastareaud (R) during the Six Nations Rugby Union match between France and Wales at the Stade de France on February 9, 2013 in Saint-Denis, north of Paris.

RW Icons calendar: Why we made our choices

first_imgIf you agree, or disagree, please join the debate on Twitter @Rugbyworldmag Difficult pick: Narrowing our Icons calendar down to 12 was a painful processBy Owain JonesWHEN PUTTING your name to any definitive list, you open yourself up to, at best healthy debate, at worst widespread ridicule, so when RW came up with the Icons calendar concept, we made sure blood, sweat and tears were expended narrowing down a list of 12 global superstars that we felt had the perfect mix of ability, charisma and sheer star quality.Of course, omitting the likes of Joost van der Westhuizen, Dan Carter, Serge Blanco, Willie John McBride, Mike Gibson, David Campese or Gavin Hastings – we could go on, and on – was a wrench and will be sacrilege to many because, clearly, there are more than a dozen icons in the game that we hold close to our heart.Born leader: O’Driscoll ralliesOur criteria was simple; an icon symbolizes an individual who has transcended the game by an act or deed, on or off the pitch.For that reason, Jonah Lomu was the first name scribbled down. He was the world’s first global rugby superstar and the way, as a 19-year-old, he brutally dismantled Will Carling’s England in the semi-final of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, simply took the breath away.Another moment in 1995, that set off a million flashbulbs around the world, came when Nelson Mandela handed the Webb Ellis Cup to Springbok captain Francois Piennar. It was  a handshake that united the Rainbow Nation.Far fresher in the memory is the world’s most successful international captain, Richie McCaw. The first man to win 100 Tests and the last captain to lift the World Cup. Throw in the fact that he’s probably the best openside the world has ever seen, and his legend only grows.Australia has gifted us a plethora of incredible players but you know someone is pretty special when their nickname is ‘Nobody’ because ‘Nobody’s perfect’, so penalty-kicking lock John Eales, winner of two World Cups, makes the list. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Force of nature: Jonah LomuGareth Thomas is a pioneer, he was courageously the first player to come out as gay but his achievements on the pitch stand up to scrutiny. He was the first Welsh player to pass 100 caps, a Lions captain, a Grand Slam winner and Heineken Cup winner. You have to give it to ‘Alfie’, he walked the walk.Someone who is already deified in many quarters is Brian O’Driscoll. O’Driscoll is the embodiment of an icon; humble, charismatic and someone who has achieved almost everything in the game; four Lions tours, a Grand Slam, a treble of Heineken Cups and is now fast-moving towards the most highly capped international of all time. O’Driscoll needs little introduction, just BOD.Despite hanging up his boots in 35 years ago, Gareth Edwards is still revered as one of the greatest players ever to grace the game and is scorer of the most celebrated try in history for the Barbarians in 1973, while proud Scot Sir Ian McGeechan has done more than any one person to advance the Lions mythology.Deadly: Wilkinson in full-flowWe couldn’t leave our Gallic friends out, and for us, the sight of the fearless French openside Jean-Pierre Rives, blond locks flowing in the wing, shirt covered in blood at the Parc des Princes, exemplifies the unique attributes France have given the game. The same could be said of Fijian Prince, Waisele Serevi, a South Sea Islander with regal talents. Serevi’s individual brilliance not only helped Sevens develop into a global behemoth, but from 2016, an Olympic sport.Finally, there’s the duo who will be etched forever into the consciousness of every England fan. Martin Johnson and Jonny Wilkinson. Captain and marksman played an integral part helping Sir Clive Woodward’s team became the first Northern Hemisphere team to lift the World Cup. England’s fly-half Jonny Wilkinson kicks the ball during the 2011 Rugby World Cup quarter-final match France vs England at Eden Park in Auckland on October 8, 2011.

Apopka collects 66,000 cubic yards of debris

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Hurricane Irma storm debris updateFrom the City of ApopkaThe City of Apopka has resumed collection of bulky, curbside refuse such as bagged garbage and large household items that were delayed by the storm debris cleanup from Hurricane Irma. Crews started work Tuesday in Oak Ridge and in Wekiva Run.Collections are delayed because of an estimated four times the typical amount of bulky waste in residential areas. Because of the volume, in some cases, it takes city crews four days to collect what they would ordinarily collect in a single day.If possible, customers are asked to hold bulky items until the following week to allow collections to get back on a standard schedule.To date, city workers and private contractors have collected an estimated 66,000 cubic yards to storm debris created by Hurricane Irma. Contractor CrowderGulf has nine large trucks and two trailers working in Apopka. Two bucket trucks arrived this week to cut down hanging branches and damaged trees above public roads and right-of-way areas. In many cases, the “hangers” are placed on curbs to await pickup from storm-debris haulers.In Zone 1, crews are finishing Partnership Hills, Lake Todd Estates, Sanctuary Golf Place, Overlook Apartments and Plymouth Landing.In Zone 2, work is continuing in Rock Springs Ridge, Phase 1, and Wekiva Glen. Both of these neighborhoods have very large amounts of storm debris. In Zone 3, crews started in the Pines of Wekiva community and the Summit Street area. In Zone 4, work has focused on Sheeler Oaks as well as on some pickups in Piedmont Lakes.As a result of the large vehicles needed for debris removal, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:• Please make every effort to keep the street clear of parked cars when debris crews are in your area.• Please help to keep storm drains clear. Residents can help aid the debris collection by sweeping up loose leaves and debris after each pass.• Please place debris between the curb and the sidewalk. Avoid placing debris in the street, near mailboxes, fire hydrants, or on top of water mains or electric transformers or underneath power lines or cable wires.• Please keep hurricane tree debris in its own pile.• Please keep bagged leaves & debris, construction debris, fencing, furniture, appliances or anything else separated from hurricane tree debris piles. This will help with the disposal process.Feature photo and map from the City of Apopka Facebook Page Please enter your name here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Gov.

A leisure home designed in a single level to accommodate a retired couple and their guests. The house was built on a regular 20m x 20m lot located in a golf club in the city of Mérida. The architectural solution of a single level was an important decision that allowed to obtain an additional 10% of land occupation (COS) and take advantage of the native trees that already grew on the site. With the idea of compacting what was built and meeting the particular request to optimize the house for the user, a module of 17m x 14m was designed, forming a piece of 238 m2.Save this picture!© Cesar BéjarSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Cesar BéjarThe centre of the project is the dining room, which opens in the form of a cross to the living room, kitchen, study-guest bedroom and terrace and pool. We worked with the heights to differentiate the spaces of the program and to generate ventilation and natural lighting of all the spaces. The kitchen and dining room are connected by means of a structure of zapote wood that carries a slab at 4.5 m high, through which the hot air is able to exit and that allows natural light to enter.Save this picture!© Cesar BéjarThe issue of materials was resolved with three finishes: grey porcelain was used for the floors throughout the house with tiles in a format of 120cm x 60cm to lose the division of the program in the house. The walls are bare polished cement for its low maintenance requirements. Tzalam wood was used for the details to contrast the other materials and to bring warmth to the spaces.Save this picture!© Cesar BéjarThe shape is the result of what happens within the concrete volume, which lays on a stone base as if floating on the ground. A floating wall is used for the garage to break the volume of concrete and mark the horizontality of the slabs.Save this picture!© Cesar BéjarSave this picture!Section XSave this picture!© Cesar BéjarProject gallerySee allShow lessWhy Incorporate Moss Walls into ArchitectureArticlesDesigning Freedom / Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi for the Shenzhen Biennale (UABB) 2019Articles Share Projects Save this picture!© Cesar Béjar+ 21Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

For this home renovation project in Sayulita, two main actions were carried out. In the centre of the house, in the original location of the kitchen, part of the roof was removed to create an interior courtyard that serves as an access and distribution hall between the private and public areas. When removing the roof, the original wooden structure that supported the concrete slab was preserved as a witness of the intervention.Save this picture!© Natalia GarcíaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Natalia GarcíaSave this picture!© Natalia GarcíaThe second action consisted of incorporating a new volume that adheres to the existing construction to house the public area. By means of a masonry base on which the metal structures are placed, the new element allows a constant visual relationship with the exterior, taking advantage of the privileged views towards the sea and the beach. The roof of the new volume is a palapa, a characteristic construction of the coastal areas of Mexico based on a wooden structure covered with palm leaves. The public area manages to expand the space by opening on one side towards the interior courtyard of the house and towards a terrace that intensifies the relationship with the outside on the opposite side.Save this picture!© Natalia GarcíaFrom the moment you enter the house, the vegetation is always present. In the central courtyard, a raised planter houses a variety of hanging plants that fall towards the stone fountain and the water mirror. The transition space between the existing and the new construction is diluted through the landscape project. Finally, in the courtyards of the bedrooms, the use of plants allows privacy between the views to which the different bathrooms in the house open.Save this picture!© Natalia GarcíaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Natalia GarcíaIn addition to the two main actions, a rearrangement and distribution of the bedroom and bathroom area were carried out to take advantage of the space.Save this picture!© Natalia GarcíaProject gallerySee allShow lessTeahouse Ø / PAN- ProjectsSelected ProjectsNæra Hotel, Chicken Coop / Leeko StudioSelected Projects Share House Mirlo / PALMA Save this picture!© Natalia García+ 16Curated by Clara Ott Share Year:  Mexico CopyHouses•Sayulita, Mexico ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2020 CopyAbout this officePALMAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSayulitaOn FacebookMexicoPublished on February 01, 2021Cite: “House Mirlo / PALMA” [Vivienda Mirlo / PALMA] 01 Feb 2021.
