Hotshot: Australia Women’s centre Alysia Lefau-Fakaosilea

first_img Debut time: Alysia Lefau-Fakaosilea on the attack against Japan (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Australia Women’s centre Alysia Lefau-FakaosileaDate of birth 5 November 2000 Born Auckland Club Queensland Country Australia Position CentreWhen did you first play rugby? At 14. There was a team at school and I was encouraged by some friends to start playing. Before that I played netball and OzTag (non-contact rugby league).What do you enjoy most? Defence and tackling! I love the physicality and working hard to outdo whoever is running at you. I think defensively I’m sound. We’re told that defence is 90% attitude and I’m pretty good with my mindset.Who were your childhood heroes? My parents. They have always been there for me and my family. They’re so supportive.How much does it help having Will Skelton as your uncle? Uncle Will is awesome. He sent me a good-luck video message before the Super W final against NSW, so it’s great to know I have his support.Who has been the biggest influence on your career? Big things are expected of this teenager who recently made her Wallaroos debutcenter_img My coaching mentors – Lachlan Parkinson, the Reds high performance and Aussie Youth Sevens coach, and Moana Virtue, my Queensland Reds Super W and Sunnybank coach. They have helped me develop my game mentally and physically, and encourage me to push beyond my limits.How do you find playing senior rugby for the Reds Super W team? We were disappointed we couldn’t defeat NSW but have really closed the gap on them. The standard of the competition is really strong and makes me hungrier for more.Do you prefer sevens or 15s? Can I say both? I love playing in both comps and love them for different reasons.What do you want to achieve in the next 12 months? I’m just enjoying it at the moment and not trying to get too ahead of myself. This is a big year for the Wallaroos with the most home Tests for the team ever, plus there is an Olympics next year and I’m keeping my eye on that.RW VERDICT: The teenager put her aspirations of being a police officer on hold to focus on rugby. And it’s paying off as she’s making waves Down Under. She made her Wallaroos debut against Japan and expect her to push for a place in the sevens squad for Tokyo 2020 too.

Designed for a couple that privileges the spaces of relaxation and reunion for when their children and grandchildren visit them.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralAt pedestrian level, the front facade seduces with a set of concrete planes that fuses with the large panels of the gate and main door clad in Neolith, and a passive parasol system of micro perforated sheets that filters and gives privacy to the openings. We get to the entrance door after walking on travertine steps that contrast with the intense foliage of the plants that surround the path. The exterior wall covered in travertine accompanies us to the interior. In front of this, a wall covered from floor to ceiling in lapacho wood hides the doors to the guest bathroom and spa.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe axis of circulation of the house is the large central space in double height. An exposed concrete wall, with a handmade cast, emerges from the reflection pool and disappears into the sky through the glazed roof. This meeting point of the house visually links all the rooms of the house. The reflection pool, coated in dark porfido, marks the bottom of the travertine ladder that floats on the water. Separated by a system of solid wooden jambs, the reflecting pool becomes the pool of the spa.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe spa, realized in dark tones and exposed concrete walls, creates an atmosphere of relaxation that invites to enjoy the indoor pool. The spa communicates to the outside through a large glazed pivot door, which allows access to the gallery that extends from the side to the back of the house. Overlooking the garden, a double living, and formal dining room takes shape. All set with minimal furniture of the highest quality. The travertine marble floor extends to the outside, blurring the boundary between the inside and the outside.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe kitchen and casual dining develops longitudinally to the ground and expands in the semi-covered barbecue separated from the main volume of the house. The quincho, like the rest of the house, was designed as a premier space. It stands out for its wooden ceiling that contrasts strongly with the volume of grill and kitchen in black slate. This space and infinity pool towards the lagoon form the space of relaxation for the guests of the house.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralOn the upper floor, to the front, we have three bedrooms en suite for guests.

It develops in an L-shape, with a glazed roof sector that fills the place with light, to ensure good natural lighting throughout the day. In this room, the wooden floor is the negative of the exposed concrete ceiling, which copies the drawing of the wooden planks. The master suite consists of the sleeping space, dressing room, and bathroom. Each space was designed to be used independently, without disturbing other sectors.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralIn the last level, accessible only through the elevator, there is an atelier with access to the terrace.

Five journalists come under fire while covering land invasion, eight local residents wounded

The steps taken by the interior ministry to protect journalists must be accompanied by an increase in investigative resources.”According to the Press and Society Institute (IPYS) and the National Association of Journalists (ANP), the five journalists came under fire from gunmen when they went to cover an illegal occupation of agricultural land outside Chiclayo at the request of villagers who own the land. Eight of the villagers were injured when they intervened to protect the journalists.“There were about 10 people who attacked us,” Chambergo said. “They opened fire on us when they saw us with the owners of the occupied land. They chased after us to take our cameras.” the police began investigating the shooting today.Reporters Without Borders has registered 59 physical attacks on journalists, 35 cases of threats and three physical attacks on news media in Peru since the start of the year. to go furtherlast_img read more

Working group to improve Shannon fish passages

Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites TAGSEnvironmentLimerick City and CountyNews The Minister of State for Rural Affairs Seán Canny, TD and the Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government Damien English, TD together with Jim Dollard, ESB Executive Director Generation and Trading recently chaired the inaugural meeting of a working group tasked with recommending ways to improve fish passage at Parteen on the River Shannon at Ardnacrusha Power Station. Photograph Liam Burke/Press 22.UP TO the early 1900s, the River Shannon was renowned for its salmon stocks but in recent years, the spawning habitat has deteriorated beyond recognition.A working group, involving local stakeholders, representatives from the Government departments and the ESB, has been tasked with finding ways to improve fish passage at Parteen on the river basin.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The group believes that improving passage around the Ardnacrusha hydroelectric power station would enhance the ecological condition of the river and give fish improved access to the upper Shannon catchment.One of its key goals will be to enhance tourism and angling in the area.Jim Dollard, ESB’s director of generation, said that they focused significant resources and expertise on waterways and fish conservation through a number of initiatives.“ESB plays a significant role in the delivery of Ireland’s National Eel Management Plan, operates hatcheries on the Shannon, Erne and the Lee and eight fish passes and lifts along the rivers where we have a presence.“We have also delivered many river development projects across the Shannon through our interactions with the local angling community. ESB is happy to continue to work with stakeholders to improve the Shannon as an amenity,” he said.Recent figures from the National Strategy for Angling Development showed there were 128,988 salmon and sea trout anglers in 2014/2015. Of these, 62,928 were domestic anglers, 17,220 came from Northern Ireland and 48,840 rom overseas. The total economic contribution from these anglers was €210 million.The Steering Group has a core group that is responsible for producing potential solutions and consists of organisations that would have a direct role in any potential pilot project designed to address the issues raised.

Radio echo sounding of Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica: Aperture synthesis processing and analysis of feasibility from space

first_imgAirborne radio echo sounding of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet over Pine Island Glacier was performed in the austral summer of 2004/2005 under the National Science Foundation’s West Antarctic Ice Sheet Initiative. The British Antarctic Survey flew its newly developed 150-MHz ice-sounding radar over Pine Island Glacier and collected approximately 35 000 km of sounding data. The synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technique was applied to process those data in order to enhance radar signatures from the bed. As a matter of fact, airborne ice-sounding radar systems are generally affected by surface clutter returns, masking the echoes of internal layers and ice-bedrock transition at a large depth. Focused and unfocused (Doppler filtering) SAR techniques were compared, and their respective advantages/disadvantages were analyzed. Enhancement of bedrock detection at a large depth (> 2000 m) through SAR processing is demonstrated. Finally, a simulation analysis was performed for assessing the feasibility of ice-sheet sounding from space. It is shown that the gain in bed detection threshold is marginal in the satellite sounding geometry.

Timing and origin of recent regional ice-mass loss in Greenland

first_imgWithin the last decade, the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) and its surroundings have experienced record high surface temperatures (Mote, 2007 and Box et al., 2010), ice sheet melt extent (Fettweis et al., 2011) and record-low summer sea-ice extent (Nghiem et al., 2007). Using three independent data sets, we derive, for the first time, consistent ice-mass trends and temporal variations within seven major drainage basins from gravity fields from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE; Tapley et al., 2004), surface-ice velocities from Inteferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR; Rignot and Kanagaratnam, 2006) together with output of the regional atmospheric climate modelling (RACMO2/GR; Ettema et al., 2009), and surface-elevation changes from the Ice, cloud and land elevation satellite (ICESat; Sørensen et al., 2011). We show that changing ice discharge (D), surface melting and subsequent run-off (M/R) and precipitation (P) all contribute, in a complex and regionally variable interplay, to the increasingly negative mass balance of the GrIS observed within the last decade. Interannual variability in P along the northwest and west coasts of the GrIS largely explains the apparent regional mass loss increase during 2002–2010, and obscures increasing M/R and D since the 1990s. In winter 2002/2003 and 2008/2009, accumulation anomalies in the east and southeast temporarily outweighed the losses by M/R and D that prevailed during 2003–2008, and after summer 2010. Overall, for all basins of the GrIS, the decadal variability of anomalies in P, M/R and D between 1958 and 2010 (w.r.t. 1961–1990) was significantly exceeded by the regional trends observed during the GRACE period (2002–2011).last_img read more

HMS Daring Visits St Peter Port, Guernsey

She anchored in the Little Russell in full view of the picturesque Island.Guernsey is one of Daring’s principal maritime affiliations and the visit coincided with the HMS Charybdis and HMS Limbourne memorial weekend which allowed the Ship’s Company to fully support the events ashore and to also re-enforce strong relationship between Daring and the Island.The memorial weekend serves to remember the two Royal Navy Ships lost during World War 2 at the cost of 464 lives, but also acts to remember the act of defiance against the occupying forces by the Islanders when five thousand of them gathered at the funerals for the perished Royal Navy sailors.The ship hosted over 400 visitors during a busy programme of events and visits. There were tours of the Ship for 8 local schools including pupils from the Ship’s affiliated school, Elizabeth College.The Sea Scouts and Sea Cadets from TS Sarnia were also hosted and there were 4 periods of Ship Open to Visitors, held on the Saturday and Sunday, for Islanders who obtained tickets from the local press.The Commanding Officer, Captain Guy Robinson hosted a lunch for 21 VIPs including the Lieutenant Governor, Air Marshal Peter Walker CBE, Richard Collas, Bailiff of Guernsey and Chief Minister Deputy Peter Harwood.The Ship’s Company was also able to support numerous events ashore.  A 10-strong platoon, of all ranks and rates, attended the public Guernsey Association of Royal Navy and Royal Marines (GARNRM) Beat the Retreat Ceremony, where they helped raise over half the £750 total for GARNRM, the highest total raised for the association in the last 4 years the event has been held.Finally a marching platoon of 24 attended the Charybdis memorial service at Le Foulon Cemetery. Lt Edmund Freeman who led the platoon said, “It was a really moving ceremony and it is important that the men and women of the Royal Navy can take opportunities like this to remember those who have fallen”By way of reciprocation, indicative of the relationship between Daring and Guernsey, The Bailiff and his team kindly hosted 60 of the Ship’s Company for a drinks reception at the Royal Court Building.Captain Robinson said, “This is a particularly strong affiliation of which I am very proud.  As a former Commanding Officer of the patrol ship HMS Guernsey I have had the privilege of many visits to the island and it is always a real pleasure to return.”Daring has recently returned from a Middle East Deployment where she travelled 34,642 nautical miles, spending 139 days at sea. Type 45 Destroyers are now routinely sent to the Gulf as part of the longstanding Royal Navy presence in the Middle East.Daring and her crew were deployed as part of the Combined Maritime Task Forces (CMF) where, with other partner Nations, she conducted tasking ranging from maritime security, counter piracy, capacity building through to the wider maritime security effort dedicated to maintaining stability in the region.Having returned home and had some well earned leave a visit to Guernsey was high on the list of priorities for the Ship, despite numerous other commitments in preparation for her second deployment next year.[mappress]Naval Today Staff,October 10, 2012; Image: Royal Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Daring Visits St Peter Port, Guernsey View post tag: port View post tag: Guernsey Share this articlelast_img read more
