The team failed to qualify for the playoffs but one MI cricketer will have happy memories of the season XI. Suryakumar Yadav, the prolific Mumbai opener had a memorable IPL this year scoring 512 runs. Yadav justified every penny paid to him by his IPL bosses. ₹3.2 Crore fees for IPL season may look tad too much for a domestic player but the uncapped Indian player finished number 9th on the Moneyball’s Impact rankings this season and number 15th on the value for money rank.In the process, Yadav became the first uncapped Indian player to score more than 500 runs in the single edition of the tournament. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeGrammarlyImprove Your Spelling With This Helpful Browser ExtensionGrammarlyUndoGeorgetown UniversityLearn from Anywhere This Summer with Georgetown’s Online Summer CoursesGeorgetown UniversityUndoCBS NewsThink Your Commute Is Safe?

He has posted an update on his Instagram handle to show the gift to his fans as well. He got a little emotional too as he recalled the time when his parents had gifted him his first car. He feels happy to gift them a car now.“That moment when life comes to a full circle! An emotional moment indeed…. I was gifted my first car by none other than my parents. I am what I am because of them and it’s my absolute pleasure to gift them this beauty! Hope they enjoy their ride! Love you, Mom and Dad!! #77,” Suryakumar Yadav captioned the picture that he shared.Before being picked by Mumbai Indians for the just concluded IPL season, the dynamic batsman was one of the batting mainstays of the Kolkata Knight Riders over the last few seasons of the tournament. He started off the season as a middle-order batsman this year. Soon, the Mumbai Indians thinktank decided to promote him up the order. For the first time in his IPL career, Suryakumar Yadav found himself opening the innings for his side. He was nervous but he ended up coming out with a very impressive performance. In his very first game as an opener, Suryakumar hit a fifty. He soon made it a habit to give good starts to his side throughout the league stages.With IPL season concluded, now it is time for Yadav to celebrate by spending lavishly courtesy his IPL salary of 3.2 Crores.

This family house designed by OYO is the result of a close collaboration between client and architect. OYO was given carte blanche, which opened the possibility to focus on an ecological and compact building from the start. Unlike most single family houses in Belgium OYO started with the idea of positioning the living rooms on top of the bedrooms. In a house composed with split-levels it was important to establish cross relations between the spaces and natural lighting conditions throughout all spaces. Save this picture!© Thomas De BruyneThe house is defined by the continuation of the soil, creating one continuous lifted green roof. The only exception: two popping volumes created on the green surface. One defines the entrance, the other brings light deep into the dining room. The window is dimensioned regarding the light conditions but carefully positioned so the inhabitants maintain privacy towards the street. The use of wood and warm materials was an inspired decision to create a Scandinavian-like interior ambiance. The balance of light and material-use like stone, wood and white surfaces are the defining elements that bring everything together.Save this picture!© Thomas De BruyneSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Thomas De BruyneFrom the design phase to the construction of the house, OYO’s main objective was to selectively use every material to its highest potency. A concrete base was used to carry a light timber frame, which was prepared in a local warehouse and mounted together on site. A rubber roofing membrane was wrapped around the house to protect the interior from changing weather conditions working as one facade element. This unorthodox technique allows the rubber to change appearance as the day passes, the season changes and the weather fluctuates. Through the seasons there are different plants flowering on top. Since the roof of the house actually continues into the ground level, a singular green roof is conceived so that both facade and roof will vary in color all the time. Save this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!Plan 2The fireplace can be used both indoors and outdoors. In summer it is used as a BBQ and people dine under the covered terrace. The terrace is a continuous wooden deck connecting the living rooms and kitchen with the exterior spaces. On the wooden deck we also find a small swimming pond. When the sun is out, it casts a playful reflection on the ceilings in the interior of the house.Save this picture!© Thomas De BruyneSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Thomas De BruyneThis house has an excellent low energy performance because of the insulation pack between the timber frames and the thermal capacity created by the green roof. Something you might not notice when you approach the house are the solar panels laying on top of the volumes from the entrance and dining area, all facing South. This adds up to the energy demands of the residents and contributes to the sustainable ambition the clients had from the beginning when dreaming about their new home.  Save this picture!© Thomas De BruyneProject gallerySee allShow lessPfarrhaus Krumbach / + Bernardo Bader + Bechter Zaffignani Architekten + Architekt…Selected ProjectsProject of the Month: Fine Arts MuseumArticles Share Save this picture!© Thomas De Bruyne+ 30 Share 2015 Architects: OYO Area Area of this architecture project Photographs:  Thomas De Bruyne Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794729/house-pibo-oyo-architects Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

Based on a study of the terrain, we identified two striking visuals: the rear of the property, with a beautiful forest landscape; and the front of the lot, which offers an ample view of the setting sun with a field of orange trees in the background. The side views were not highly valued since neighboring lots will be occupied in the future.

The connection between these two levels was designed to be as natural and pleasurable as possible: a broad staircase with a slight slope in which the steps turn into planters and natural light penetrates through an opening in the ceiling, with the same dimensions of the staircase. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe social areas and bedrooms are on the main floor, which occupies the entire width of the land. In the center of the volume are the Living Room, Dining Room and Verandas, open to both sides and integrated through a high ceiling and four-meter-long eaves.

On the opposite side, the six en-suites, three in the house next to the main block, were slightly suspended to the height of the garden, making the volume lighter and also generating cozier internal heights.

Montreal puts museum visits on prescription

first_img Melanie May | 12 November 2018 | News Main image: MMFA-MFdC Museum prescription. Photo MBAM, Jean-François Brière Advertisement As of 1 November, doctors who are members of Médecins francophones du Canada (MdFC) can prescribe visits to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA). The prescriptions will enable patients, accompanied by family or caregivers, to have a free visit to the Museum. The collaboration between the MMFA and MdFC, which has several thousand physician members, many in the greater Montreal area, is strengthening the link between the medical and museum communities. The MMFA-MdFC Museum Prescriptions programme is a new treatment tool that makes museum visits accessible to thousands of patients suffering from a variety of physical and mental health problems. The programme aims to contribute to the patient’s wellbeing and recovery by offering free admission to a safe, welcoming place, a relaxing, revitalising experience, a moment of respite, and an opportunity to strengthen ties with loved ones. In the first phase of the project, participating physicians will be able to issue up to 50 prescriptions for a visit to the MMFA collections and exhibitions, with entry for up to 2 adults and 2 children aged 17 and under.Nathalie Bondil, Director General and Chief Curator of the MMFA, said:“I am convinced that in the 21st century, culture will be what physical activity was for health in the 20th century. Cultural experiences will benefit health and wellness, just as engaging in sports contributes to fitness. Skeptics would do well to recall that just a hundred years ago, sports were believed to distort the body and threaten women’s fertility. Just as doctors now prescribe exercise, they will be able to prescribe a visit to the MMFA. We are very proud of this ground-breaking pilot project, in partnership with the Médecins francophones du Canada.”  112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14  111 total views,  1 views today Tagged with: arts wellbeing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14 Montreal puts museum visits on prescription About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Breaking the prison chains

first_imgRebellion at St. Louis City JailA continuous assault on imprisoned inhabitants at the “Justice Center” in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, precipitated the fourth prison rebellion in recent months April 4. (tinyurl.com/yk44uu4g) Onlookers watch as incarcerated workers chant from broken windows at the city jail in St. Louis, April 4.Two separate groups smashed out windows in different areas and displayed messages like “Help Us.” People could be heard chanting: “We want court dates!”The majority of people held in city jails like this one are in pretrial status, without having been convicted of any crime. They are trapped inside for years and exposed to medical neglect and COVID while awaiting trial. The city’s response to these brave people asking for life was to hire more guards, rather than to change the deadly conditions that have generated consistent resistance. Response to previous rebellions against inhumane conditions was to create yet another toothless advisory task force with little ability to change conditions, but which simply repeated more of what was already known.Meanwhile, racism in policing and the courts continues. For instance, in St. Louis City jails, Black residents are held in pretrial detention three times as often as white residents, according to the “Court Reform” section of a recent St. Louis City Department of Corrections and American Community Survey. This data reflects U.S. trends as well. (tinyurl.com/yc5m8xun)And what’s more, local governments in the U.S. — which serve capital and those who hoard wealth — spend around $13.6 billion each year on pretrial detention.  On any given day, 555,000 people are locked up and have not been convicted of anything. Some of these people are arrested for a few hours or days and have not yet been brought before a judge. Others are too poor to afford money bail and end up waiting for trial for years. (Prison Policy Initiative, March 24)The disproportionate effect of the “injustice system” on people who have been continuously assaulted by colonialism and capitalism happens because prisons, jails and detention centers are built to incarcerate oppressed groups of people within the U.S., in order to serve those amassing wealth off the plunder of the entire world. Prisons, jails and detention centers — both before and especially during COVID — guarantee a likelihood of premature death to people whom a racist, sexist society deems unfit. Thus are perpetuated extreme inequality and suffering for the many to the benefit of the few. Abolish the conditions that make prisons necessary.  Tear down the walls!Death of an incarcerated Oklahoma workerConditions at Oklahoma County Detention Center were so bad — as in many prisons, jails and detention centers — that one of the prisoners allegedly took a guard hostage during a medicine distribution March 27. That incarcerated member of our collective class, the working class, was named Curtis Montrell Williams. He was shot and killed by a guard. His death was livestreamed as a spectacle to social media by guards Lt. Coy Gilbert and Officer Kevin Kulman. (https://tinyurl.com/4dk3uhzx)Curtis Montrell Williams was one among many in the jail complaining that there was no running water and that they weren’t being fed. Other conditions, like bedbugs and roaches in overcrowded cells, have been common complaints about the facility for years. (NY Post, April 5) Curtis’ mother, Rhonda Lambert, said the conditions at the jail caused her son severe mental anguish and were responsible for prompting him to lose control. The incident with Williams was the latest in a string of deaths at the jail, which was seized from the inhumane custody of the local sheriff’s office in July by the newly formed Oklahoma County Jail Trust. Five incarcerated people have been killed at the jail in 2021, including Williams. (Oklahoman, March 29)Prisons, jails and detention centers precipitate more violence than they supposedly protect the people outside from. There have been countless uprisings in these facilities across the world and over time, with one of the largest clusters of recorded prison uprisings in recent history happening as the COVID pandemic compounds misery in these concentration camps for the poor and the oppressed.Prisons, jails and detention centers have been built as powerful tools of isolation. But as the movement for abolition continues to heat up inside the walls — given the unabated inhumane conditions incapable of being reformed — it’s only a matter of time before the struggles of incarcerated members of our class inside and the struggles of solidarity supporters outside are networked together. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

However, the settlement still leaves J&J facing hundreds of other opioid-related lawsuits.The company is accused of using aggressive marketing campaigns for over-the-counter drugs and lax regulation of the distribution. Lawers for the two Ohio counties said the deal will provide urgently needed funds to help treat babies born to opioid-addicted mothers. They say they brought the lawsuit “to hold the remaining opioid makers and distributors accountable for fueling the crisis that has led to thousands of deaths in Ohio and across the country.”FDA warns to stop using THC vaping products as injuries, deaths continueThe US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers to stop using THC vaping products as investigations into vaping-related lung injuries and deaths continue. The drug rehab fort myers help people overcome the drug problems.FDA Acting Commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless said that the increased number of vaping-related illnesses has underscored the need “to gather critical information and provide consumers with actionable information to help best protect themselves and their loved ones.”As of Tuesday, 1,080 cases of lung injuries associated with vaping have been reported to the CDC. There have been 21 deaths confirmed from 18 states. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, FDA, state and local health departments and other clinical and public health partners are continuing to investigate this lung-injury outbreak based on e-cigarette use. Lawyer for first Ukraine whistleblower to represent second whistleblowerThe lawyer for the first intelligence whistleblower who came forward with accusations against President Trump and his interactions with Ukraine said he will now be representing a second whistleblower regarding the President’s actions. The creation of a second whistleblower came as House Democrats with an impeachment inquiry emphasized Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky July 25. The first whistleblower said that “the President abused his official powers to solicit interference from Ukraine in the upcoming 2020 election, and that the White House took steps to cover it up.” Trump has denied any wrongdoing on the call with Zelensky. Trump expected to resign rather before possible impeachmentA former Trump Organization executive, Barbara Res, says she thinks President Donald Trump may resign rather than face possible removal from office by impeachment.“It would be very, very, very bad for him to be impeached,” Barbara Res said. “I don’t know that he’ll be found guilty but I don’t know that he wants to be impeached. I think that’s what this panic is about. And my gut [instinct] is that he’ll leave office, he’ll resign. Or make some kind of a deal, even, depending on what comes out.”Res has first-hand experience working with Trump and has been critical of Trump in recent years, including during the 2016 campaign. “The President is still the Donald Trump I knew while working for him for over a decade,” Res said.

As Dink murder trial resumes, authorities urged to prosecute all those who knew about murder plot

Dink was gunned down in Istanbul on 19 January.“Thanks to the Dink family’s efforts, some progress has been made since the first hearing on 2 July,” the press freedom organisation said. “It shows the authorities have begun to realise the seriousness of this case, and we welcome that. But this initial progress is not enough. All the people who participated in this murder, and all those who were aware of its preparation and did nothing to stop it, must also be prosecuted and punished according to the law.”The second hearing in the trial is due to be held on 1 October in Istanbul. Nineteen persons are being tried for Dink’s murder or complicity in his murder. Only eight of them are currently detained after the court decided to release four of the suspects – Salih Hacisalioglu, Veysel Toprak, Osman Alpay and Irfan Ozkan – during the first hearing.As a result of a 15 March letter from the victim’s widow, Rakel Dink, urging Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to investigate what happened during the months prior to Dink’s death, Erdogan announced that he has assigned the case to his Commission of Enquiry, a special team that is permanently at his disposal.Two of the commission’s investigators reportedly went to the northern city of Trabzon, where all the defendants live, to look into the accusations that have been levelled against its security forces. Two members of the city’s police were already being investigated as a result of allegations made by Coskun Igci, the 19th person to be charged. Igci claims he was employed as an informant by the police and warned them that an attack was being prepared on Dink.After the Dink family filed a new complaint, the family and the two of the leading suspects, Yasin Hayal and Eran Tuncel, were formally questioned again as to what they knew about the role of two police officials in the case.Nonetheless, Trabzon’s governor decided on 7 August that intelligence chief Ramazan Akyürek, and Trabzon police chief Resat Altay are not to be prosecuted for failing to prevent the murder despite repeated warnings. The Dink family has appealed against the decision not to bring prosecutions against them and against police officers Engin Dinç, Faruk Sari, Ercan Demir, Özkan Mumcu, Muhittin Zenit and Mehmet Ayhan.last_img read more

San Antonio, LA Trade Tech, and East Los Angeles in the newly formed SCC North Division. In past years, PCC has had to challenge perennial state power El Camino for the conference crown, but now the Warriors are patrolling things in the SCC South Division.Terrill is taking things one step at a time as he prepares a ’16 Lancers squad that returns four lettermen from a 14-9 team that made the regional playoffs last season. Rayleen Rivera, an opposite last season, returns as one of the team’s starting outside hitters. Rivera, who averaged 1.43 kills and 1.73 digs last season in a team-high 80 sets, is expected to be a leader for the Lancers.“Ray plays the whole game well, serving, passing, and digging,” Terrill said. “She’s a vocal leader and brings a fire to the team. If she plays consistently, she has the ability to be a go-to offensive player for us.”Also returning and switching positions is Monica Hernandez, who was a setter last year and now will be relied on in the important libero defensive spot. Hernandez averaged 2.01 digs in 2015 and made a team-high 13 digs in the Lancers’ play-in, regional playoff loss to Mt. SAC.“Monica is consistent and reliable on serve receive and passing,” Terrill said. “She reads the game well and she can be an anchor on defense.”Returning at setter is Hannah Clarke (318 assists, 4.42 average), who will split time in a 6-2 offense with freshman Emily Leung (from Maranatha High).“Hannah is a great all-around player and brings maturity as a second-year player here. She could have battled for the libero spot because of her defensive prowess. Meanwhile, Emily is a dynamic talent as well. Both do such a good job of connecting with their teammates, it made sense to go to a 6-2 because they are similar in their style of play.”Also returning are opposite Shawna Ogata and Michelle Boyd, a defensive specialist who comes back to the squad from two seasons ago. Boyd led the ’14 team in service aces with 27 and averaged 1.96 digs per set.“Michelle is a good athlete from the back row who can score from the service line. She will shore up our passing as well. Shawna brings a calming presence for this group. She’s improved her game.”After Leung, PCC’s freshmen group is paced by 6-foot opposite Chyna Peeler, who was a top player at Birmingham Community Charter High, and 5-11 middle blocker Lania Potter, from local Muir High, and 5-10 middle blocker and Arcadia High product Amanda Pickering.“Lania could turn into a defensive force because she has a great growth mindset, always willing to learn. Chyna can score points for us blocking and attacking on the right side. If she develops, she can be a key contributor. Amanda is another steady presence and gives us more size at the net.”Leung, Pickering and frosh defensive specialist Kelsey Sarreal, an All-Pacific League Second Team selection from Arcadia, each made it to the West San Gabriel Valley Prep All-Stars last year.Rounding out the Lancers’ 15-player roster are freshmen in outside hitter Kendall Schmedes (Maranatha High), defensive specialist Alissa Sanchez (Chino High), outside hitter Vanessa Lopez (Elizabeth Learning Center), and middle blocker Danielle Castillo (Azusa).Terrill talked about what he expects from his team.“One of our goals is to serve tough and play relentlessly on defense. We have to outwork opponents. That’s the identity we want. It’s going to take a lot of dedication from the players. We have a mindset to make continual improvement, a little bit every day.”Terrill’s head coaching debut and the Lancers’ 2016 season opener is this Friday, Aug. 26 at 12 noon when they face last year’s state No. 11-ranked MiraCosta at the 2nd Pierce College Kickoff Classic. PCC will play again later Friday and follow with two more matches on Saturday. Check this website for matchups and times as they become available and follow us on twitter: @PCCAthletics.
