Anscombe missed the extras and an Adams knock-on from a scrum five meant Wales failed to rack up the points their first-half dominance merited.They had 57% possession in that opening period and made 44 fewer tackles than the Scots – but the second 40 was a totally different story. Winning feeling: Wales celebrate Jonathan Davies’s try that stretched their lead to 15-6 (Inpho) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS All Wales’ best work in this tournament has been done in the second half but this time the damage was done in the first half an hour. After falling behind to a Finn Russell penalty, Wales bagged the first try when Jonathan Davies put Adams away down the left and he beat Blair Kinghorn with some classy footwork to score his third try in as many Tests.Replays suggested Davies’s pass might have marginally forward. Watch the try below and decide for yourself. Wales stay on course for a Six Nations Grand Slam with a tense 18-11 win in Edinburgh Scotland were hindered by a number of early injuries, starting with an HIA for flanker Jamie Ritchie and a trip to the blood-bin for his replacement Watson.Tommy Seymour retired from the fray with a hand injury after 20 minutes, Blair Kinghorn lasted only ten minutes longer, and when wing Graham picked up an injury in the second half, Scotland had to play scrum-half Ali Price out of position.By that time, Wales had established a foundation for their third shot at a Grand Slam under Gatland. Russell and Anscombe traded penalties before Wales struck for their second try on 29 minutes. A 23-phase move included a great ‘unders’ line by Man of the Match Hadleigh Parkes. George North probably took the wrong option by going for the line, but the ball was recycled for Jonathan Davies to jink over from close range. Watch the try here. Watson’s impact off the bench was such that he beat ten defenders out of the 34 achieved by the team as a whole. “Whatever he had for breakfast should be compulsory for every player,” said BBC pundit Martyn Williams.Wales were creaking. They missed 26 tackles but made plenty more, Parkes making crucial interventions by preventing a Josh Strauss offload and winning the race to a Price chip in his in-goal area.Retired hurt: Liam Williams leaves the field (Getty Images)Liam Williams (shoulder) went off injured after a tackle on Allan Dell and Wales will pray that he recovers quickly with the Grand Slam match just seven days away.Wyn Jones, immense yet again, referred to the “turbulent week” that undermined the Welsh performance, the backdrop being the Project Reset rumours that have swirled around the Principality and beyond all week.Gatland also acknowledged that destabilising effect but his side march on, unbeaten since the Ireland match a year ago. There is an incredible steel and resolve about them that augurs well for this year’s World Cup.For Scotland, it was pride restored after the poor showing in France, but they will need to produce an exceptional performance at Twickenham next weekend to avoid finishing with just a solitary win in this championship.“I’m proud of the way the team played and the physicality they showed,” said head coach Gregor Townsend. “The character to adapt to things that were going against us – whether that was injuries early on, or Wales scoring a couple of early tries – we showed a really good picture of who we are, especially in the second half.“I firmly believe that if we had just improved our defence and had better spacing, we’re winning this game.”Power runner: Scotland wing Darcy Graham breaks through Josh Navidi’s tackle at Murrayfield (Getty)Skipper Stuart McInally added: “The try we scored was brilliant and it was great to see Darcy get on the end of it, he worked so hard. There were a number of guys who stepped up and put the third-best team in the world under incredible amounts of pressure.”The stats illustrate the magnitude of the Scottish effort. They reversed the trend of Welsh possession in this championship by achieving 58% of the ball, along with 57% territory. They made twice as many line breaks, three times as many tackle breaks and carried for 779 metres compared to Wales’ 464. Watch the tries as Wales beat Scotland at MurrayfieldWales set up a mouth-watering Grand Slam match next week against Ireland after grinding out a gutsy 18-11 win at Murrayfield.First-half tries by Josh Adams and Jonathan Davies helped ease the visitors to a 15-6 lead at the interval, but they spent almost all of the second half on the back foot – putting in 140 tackles – as Scotland rediscovered the brio they showed early in the championship.Darcy Graham’s first try for his country narrowed the gap to four points and prompted a furious finale in which Hamish Watson, a mighty carrier, embodied the Scottish fight.However, the second try they needed didn’t come and Gareth Anscombe’s last-minute penalty put the seal on Wales’ record 13th successive victory and maintained Warren Gatland’s perfect record as Wales head coach against Scotland. He has won all 11 meetings against them, although rarely as uncomfortably as this. In 2005, Wales took a first-half battering in Paris but trailed only 15-6 and were able to turn it around after two Martyn Williams tries. Here, Scotland trailed by the same scoreline and, in echoes of that 2005 clash, threatened to storm back and this time leave Wales on the receiving end. Wales went on to win a Grand Slam that year, their first of the pro era.Defensive rock: Hadleigh Parkes makes one of his 14 tackles during a Man of the Match display (Inpho)Having conceded just four penalties against England last time out, Wales were penalised repeatedly and spent almost the whole half tackling like fury. Bar a lone attack following a loose-ball hack that could have brought another try for Adams, Wales were under the cosh.“We couldn’t get the ball back,” said skipper Alun Wyn Jones, who chalked up his 62nd Test win for Wales – eclipsing Gethin Jenkins’s national record.Graham, making his first Scotland start, had signalled his intent by blasting through Josh Navidi in the first half and on 59 minutes he dotted down after a neat inside pass by Russell set Byron McGuigan flying through the red ranks. Hastings gave the scoring pass – watch the try here. Wales conceded 11 penalties – their ugliest figure of the championship – and their lineout continues to cause them consternation.For all that, they are nailing the one stat that really matters – the match score – and whatever Ireland throw at them in Cardiff next week, Wales will be ready. read more

But what about the other “heart” health? How often do you need to be reminded to nourish and exercise the spirit?When the late running philosopher George Sheehan, M.D., gave motivational talks to runners, he often quoted the wife of a running convert: “My husband used to be a Methodist. Now he’s a runner.” Running may not be a religion, but, Sheehan would say, “It’s a retreat, a place to commune with God and yourself, a place for psychological and spiritual renewal.”To prepare for a recent weeklong clergy wellness retreat, the Rev. Ronnie Willerer, associate rector of Church of Our Saviour in Jacksonville, Florida, committed to walking every day with her spouse using the Walk and Be Well podcast from CREDO, an Episcopal Church health and wellness program. The podcast series is four weeks of reflections on Psalm 139’s message “I am marvelously made,” to be accompanied by a 30-minute walk.“In the past, I’d always exercised to lose a few pounds or as ‘we’ time with my husband. But in the last couple of years, we have not been that intentional about it,” Willerer said, in a recent interview with Episcopal News Service. “It was a good excuse, no, not an excuse, a good reason. The meditations proved to take me in a different direction than mere exercise, because the meditations focused on the magnificence of the creation of your body and the health of your body.”Whether they discussed the daily meditation or not, she and her husband found that the 30-minute walk was a time for deep conversation and reconnection. Her parishioners began following the podcast themselves and have been using many of the CREDO resources for women’s retreats and personal commitments to exercise combined with spiritual wellness.Certified personal and professional coach Elizabeth McKay Moosbrugger is one of the program’s writers. For Moosbrugger, exercise and prayer are bound together. During her morning runs, she repeats as a mantra the prayer from Oswald of Northumbria.“I say, ‘All that I am, Lord, I place into Your hands,’ and I think of all roles that I play in my life,” she told Episcopal News Service. “Next is, ‘All that I do,’ and I think about that coming day and what I’m being called to do in my schedule, and I place those things in God’s hands … It slows my brain down to give me a sense of being connected with God. Things that seemed overwhelming don’t seem so at the end of my run.”Her contributions to the series examine how the body is God’s gift; how people are nourished with food, work and relationships; and what that means to God.“It’s refreshing to come from that place to support and love our bodies,” she said. “That’s especially so for ministers, because they need the strength to support their communities.”The Rev. Fairbairn Powers of St. Agnes Episcopal Church in Little Falls, New Jersey, runs at the International Triathlon Union Age Group and Sprint World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand.“This combination of inner and outer wellness is essential for ministry,” the Rev. Fairbairn Powers, priest-in-charge of St. Agnes’ Episcopal Church in Little Falls, New Jersey, told ENS. “I would venture that many people don’t exercise as much for their bodies as much as they exercise for emotions – all that soul stuff. As priests, it makes it possible to cope with what we have to deal with in our parishes.”Powers offers an intercessory prayer for one of her parishioners for each lap of her daily swim, bike or run. The 73-year old triathlete began running marathons and doing cross-country skiing in her 40s. She pieced together the whole Appalachian Trail during backpacking adventures in her 50s and 60s. And now, in her 70s, she recently completed an International Triathlon Union Age Group and Sprint World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand, placing third in her age group.For a Jan. 2 article for the Episcopal Diocese of Newark on her theory about the value of exercise for clergy, Powers tossed a question about exercise onto the diocesan clergy listserv: Did members exercise regularly, and did it make a difference in their spiritual, parish, personal and family lives?She wrote that more than 35 responses arrived from runners and joggers (the Rev. Ed Hasse tops her list, with 26 marathons and counting – he prays as he runs in the mornings), as well as swimmers (the Rev. John Hartnett anchors this group, swimming a mile and a half each morning and finding that this “brings a peace which I rarely experience the rest of the day”). Deacon Nancy Read finds that her long run “frees my soul and feeds my body.”One priest shifted her schedule to allow time each morning for prayer, meditation and lifting weights at the gym after a medical “wake-up call.” Many walk; one couple rides horses; some do yoga, diving and dance; several are cyclists. At least four, including Powers and the Rev. Cathy Deats, are triathletes.One priest who hikes at least once a week said, “It’s like prayer … and nurtures my relation to the Creator.”Their common message, Powers found, was that exercise is a time for centering, for moving into connection with God, and that regular exercise leads to improvements in body, mind and spirit. Unanimously, the clergy told Powers that exercise grounded them and took them farther to a place where they really could pray.“I think we’re integrated beings, so our body, mind and spirit all work together,” Bishop Mark Hollingsworth Jr. of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio told ENS. “When I am attentive to my disciplines of exercise and study and prayer, I’m healthier in all three aspects.”Bishop Mark Hollingsworth Jr. of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio leads the annual fundraising Bishop’s Bike Ride.An avid cyclist, Hollingsworth leads the annual fundraising Bishop’s Bike Ride through the Diocese of Ohio that draws together Episcopalians of all ages and abilities. He also cycles home from General Conventions – including a 4,000-mile trek in 2009 from Anaheim, California, to the Episcopal Church Center in New York.“Endorphins change our perspective, but I also think that when I cycle, I get out of my own way,” he said. “I become focused on cycling, that rhythm and my breathing, and it clears my head. In a sense, it gets me out of my own way and the typical thinking we tend to fall into when we’re focused on the hard issues.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has stressed that some of the most significant clergy-wellness initiatives in the last few years have involved awareness of health and balance, including programs like Fresh Start and the work of CREDO.In a January 2010 interview with health coach and fitness lifestyle expert Peter K, Jefferts Schori said, “Awareness of health in the broadest sense is really what the church is about. Jesus said he came that we might have life and have it abundantly. Abundant life is about healed relationships with ourselves, with God, with our neighbors.”A long-time runner, hiker and mountain climber, Jefferts Schori is herself a role model for healthy lifestyle. “Taking care of the bodies we have … is an essential piece of tending the equipment with which you do ministry in the world … Do you love who you are, do you love and respect the tool in your body that you’ve been given?” she asks. “Deciding how I treat my body, how I spend my time, how I find refreshment, is a way of serving and a way of being ready to serve.”Focusing on how wellness can sustain the mind, body and spirit can help parishes take a whole-life approach – fostering marital harmony, alleviating job stressors or providing active family time. Churches across the country are using fitness as a tool to spread the gospel and to build community. Parishes are adding yoga classes, walking and Zumba in an effort to make their congregations healthier and make the church a nexus for parishioners’ needs. St. John’s-Grace Episcopal Church in Buffalo, New York, for example, offers modern dance and ballet classes. The Parish Life Center at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Memphis, Tennessee, provides basketball and soccer camps for kids, flag football and 5K remembrance runs.For the Rev. Scott Richardson of the Episcopal Church of St. Mary the Virgin in San Francisco, exercise is more about community and camaraderie than duty or painful exertion. His parishioners meet weekly for walks across the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field; he walks daily with his wife and their dogs; and he enjoys frequent golf outings with his brothers.“If I’m physically healthy, watching my sugar intake, abstaining from alcohol, then that’s good modeling for my congregation,” he told ENS. “People pick up on the blessing of that in their own life, and you just never know what influences lead people to change.”More than 1,250 people – laity and clergy – have committed themselves to 30 days of CREDO’s Walk and Be Well, the start of a new habit of spiritual and physical balance.“Whether exercise has been on their radar or not, it’s a great platform for people who think something needs to change in their lives,” said Moosbrugger. “We start these lofty goals and then it rains or a child gets sick, something knocks us off our regular routine. What brings you back to things you love to do and is good for you? For me, coming to realize that I’m marvelously made was a huge part of my exercise life.”Jefferts Schori agrees. In her interview with Peter K, she said, “I don’t think you have time not to exercise. Most people discover when they have [a] regular physical activity routine, they have more time and energy for the rest of their daily life.”— Sarah Moïse Young is a freelance reporter based in Charleston, South Carolina.

This work corresponds to the rehabilitation and expansion of a house built in 1970 in the commune of Las Condes, city of Santiago. It is part of a set of 25 one-story houses, designed by the architects Christian de Groote, Victor Gubbins and Hector Mery. All the houses are arranged in such a way that they adjoin each other, allowing a better use of the land, granting each one a garden to the north and another one to the south. The dividing walls, in turn, consolidate an intermediate walled yard.Save this picture!© Cristóbal VialFor this particular work, intended for a family with three children, it was requested to intervene and adapt it to the needs of its new users. The first thing was to eliminate all the modifications suffered in the time, as they are light and material extensions that presented a clear wear. Thus, it is proposed as a strategy to open perimeter walls to integrate the views of the courtyards, enhance existing skylight and give greater prominence of the light yard. The chimney is also eliminated, replacing it with a floating concrete wall that fulfills the double function of space separator and at the same time of the shelf.Save this picture!© Cristóbal VialSave this picture!LocationSave this picture!© Cristóbal VialThe house built with reinforced masonry, slab and reinforced concrete beams, maintains the same constructive logic in its new surface. Projecting the completely new service area, incorporating two light yard and a new skylight on its roof, which follows the same logic as the existing ones.

In addition to the incorporation of thermopanel crystals for all its openings. The exterior renovation, starts from the street access, building a new access that is configured by a curved wall of exposed concrete that leads to the door of the house. This in turn, is used to define the new sector of parking and barbecue area.Save this picture!© Cristóbal VialThe consolidation of the three courtyards of the house, allows a fluid journey, in a same level. For the intermediate courtyard a wooden deck is projected, which gives greater warmth and permanence to the space. The predominant materials used in this work are wood, stone, glass, steel and exposed concrete, always trying to put in value the original structure and adding a contemporary language that not only accounts for its interior, but more well of a whole that integrates the vegetation to the work.Save this picture!© Cristóbal VialProject gallerySee allShow lessRenovation of Beverly Center / Massimiliano and Doriana FuksasSelected Projectsthe coffee / Studio Boscardin.Corsi ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905834/golfo-de-darien-house-cristobal-vial-arquitectos Clipboard Area: 213 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905834/golfo-de-darien-house-cristobal-vial-arquitectos Clipboard Chile 2015 CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Las Condes, Chile Year: Golfo de Darien House / Cristobal Vial ArquitectosSave this projectSaveGolfo de Darien House / Cristobal Vial Arquitectos CopyAbout this officeCristobal Vial ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsLas CondesChilePublished on November 29, 2018Cite: “Golfo de Darien House / Cristobal Vial Arquitectos” [Casa Golfo de Darien / Cristobal Vial Arquitectos] 29 Nov 2018.

Charles Kennedy says he is an idealist, but does his foreign policy tally with this? There is no doubt that opposition to Iraq gave the Liberal Democrats credibility and support, particularly among students, yet that strength of purpose is now missing. Surely Iraq gave Kennedy a unique mandate to attack the Prime Minister on trust, and the ability to expose his failings as a leader out of touch with his nation? Yet today there is a deafening silence. The Liberal Democrats’ greatest weapon is impotent, Iraq has been reduced to background noise. Where did it all go wrong, or are we waiting for something that was unlikely to happen?More than any other group, the Liberal Democrat war stance enticed students to the third party. Kennedy quotes Gladstone while arguing that his political creed is based upon “having faith in people and what they can achieve”, yet it is hardly images of the Grand Old Man which come to mind when one considers the Liberal Democrat electorate, particularly the support among the youngest statistical bracket of the population, 18-24 year olds. However, Liberal Democrat support among this demographic may well prove to be an irrelevance in the coming General Election. On 12 April Sarah Teather was already bemoaning recent opinion polls which showed that 42% of young people had already decided not to vote, while MORI has predicted that the turnout among young people may be as low 23%, compared to a 54% average.If the 18-24 year olds voted in numbers close to that of the ‘grey vote’ so crucial to the Conservatives, the Liberal Democrats would be in a stronger position to claim ‘second party’ status. While accepting that there is what he terms a “disillusionment with the formal political process” among young people, Kennedy cites growing incidences of political activism, particularly on single issues, as an example of continued interest in politics as a means of expression. “Political parties face a real challenge in making policies which are relevant to young people,” he argues. “Disillusionment is rooted in young people feeling that their views are not heard and not taken account of.”The Liberal Democrats have been at great pains to attract young voters, and have launched a Manifesto for Young People containing popular policies such as opposition to top-up fees. There are a broad range of factors which influence Liberal Democrat popularity among the young: an impression of youth within the party hierarchy; a perceived separation from dirty front-line politics; a commitment to lowering the voting age to sixteen; a popular leader. Foreign policy is an area where the Liberal Democrats have recently found strong support among students. While many political commentators and statisticians believe opposition to the Iraq War may not prove to be a big vote-winner, the Liberal Democrat position reflected the view of a majority of young people.“To say that young people are not interested in politics is to ignore the growing rise of political activism – mostly involving young people – that characterises modern society,” argues Kennedy, contesting the impression of political disillusionment among the young. This political activism has been particularly noticeable in ‘single issue’ disputes, such as top-up fees and Iraq. “People want politicians to believe in something,” he said. The Liberal Democrats are fortunate enough, or perhaps wise enough, to believe in something which enthuses ‘the young’ to political activism, but their Iraq policy looks increasingly like a tactical decision.Central to opposition to the war in Iraq has been a rejection of US foreign policy principles. Clinton has been replaced by Bush and Rumsfeld, two men unlikely to enthuse the left-leaning youth of modern Britain. “The threats identified by the United States cannot be ignored,” he argues. “Although the approach of the United States and Europeans may differ, the goals of extending democracy, freedom and human rights, and extending stability and security beyond our borders, are goals that we share.” This is rather standard fare, but surely we have to make a choice? Not so, according to Kennedy. “It is my view that it is not a question of choice, but one of balance. Working together the United States and Europe can achieve much more than they can in isolation. It is in the interest of Britain to build a Europe that is constructively Atlanticist.” This, it seems to me, could have come from any leader of the three main political parties. Like Michael Howard and Tony Blair, he would not appreciate the label, but has Charles Kennedy too been drawn into the politics of fear?Perhaps we can find a real foreign policy difference when examining Europe, yet when asked about the accession of Turkey to the EU, he found himself quoting the Labour Foreign Secretary: “The admission of Turkey will be a strategic decision of historic importance. The Foreign Secretary himself spoke of Turkey forming a bridge between Islam and the West.” Once more, the reactionary would be disappointed. Similarly, when talking about French attitudes to European governance he merely states, “The French political establishment has to realise that enlargement of the Union means that their traditional approach to European negotiation can no longer be sustained.”However, should we really be surprised by Kennedy’s distinctly cautious approach? There is nothing wrong with his views: they are those of a man who wishes to be taken seriously as Prime Minister, and furthermore they chime in with broad, Liberal principles. His statement that “the opening of accession negotiations with Turkey is the surest way to maintain the momentum already evident in that country towards reform” is very much consistent with Liberal Democrat views on the war in Iraq.Therefore, one is left with the rather odd realisation that perhaps opposition to Iraq was a flash in the pan for the Liberal Democrat party. Of course for many it was a matter of conscience and an admirable decision, but it seems also to have been an understandable tactical decision. Therefore those who look to the Liberal Democrats for similar guidance in the future might be disappointed, and those who saw this decision as indicative of the general principles of the party have been led up the garden path. Such a hypothesis might well be met with outrage by Liberal Democrats, but it needn’t be seen as a criticism. After all, politics is a game. Perhaps the relative reluctance of Kennedy and Sir Menzies Campbell, his foreign affairs spokesman, to stand up in Parliament or outside and really make a stand, observed by Matthew Parris inThe Times on 16 April is not, as he argues, a crisis of “leadership and direction”, but merely a reluctance to expose themselves in the future.Parris intelligently asks what Gladstone would have made of such reluctance, and we can be sure that he would not have acted as Kennedy has done. Gladstone, a man of principle to the point of obstruction, took Turkish atrocities in the Balkans so much to heart that he campaigned constantly against Disraeli on the issue. Of course, things have changed since Gladstone’s long, impassioned tirades against evil in the world, but in light of such a comparison it might seem odd for Kennedy to have cited Gladstone at the beginning of our interview. If he wants to emulate the Grand Old Man, and convince young voters of his strong intentions and beliefs, now would be a good time to expose Blair on Iraq. The Liberal Democrat opposition to war uniquely allows him this honour.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2005 read more
