Why are Scotland wearing white against France in the Six Nations?

first_imgOrange is the new blue: Scotland’s ‘change’ shirt in 1999At Test level, teams most often revert to the tradition of home sides wearing a ‘change’ of kit. Although for commercial reasons, many Test sides may relish the opportunity to sport another kit in front of their adoring home fans, in hope that some may wish to purchase a replica shirt in an atypical shade.Scotland are of course no strangers to performing in surprisingly-coloured alternative kit. In recent years they have worn a shirt with a saltire on the stomach, and who can forget Scotland’s garish, orange alternative shirt circa 1999 (shown above)? Why are Scotland wearing white against France in the Six Nations?Although they traditionally wear blue, and despite them being the home side, Scotland are wearing white for their clash with France in the 2018 Six Nations. As France – known as Les Bleus –  also wear blue, Scotland have taken the move to wear white to avoid a colour clash. But if they are playing at home, BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh, why are they the ones expected to wear a ‘change’ jersey?Well, it is a long-standing tradition in rugby for the ‘home’ side to wear an alternative kit, should the issue of colour clash arise. This harks back to the days when the home side were more likely to have a change of shirt to hand. This is largely upheld in the amateur game, where the home side donning a change of kit is consider more in-keeping with the spirit of the game. White stuff: Stuart Hogg and Tommy Seymour in white shirts LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSHowever, in the professional club game, it is not uncommon to see the away side sporting alternative uniforms, much like teams in soccer do. For example, this season, when Exeter Chiefs visited Newcastle and when Saracens visited Wasps, the away sides in both Aviva Premiership clashes wore their alternative, white jerseys.

Traditional but Modern “Traditional but modern!” That was the requirement of the clients, in their thirties, who worked as authors and publishers. For a long time, successful translation of tradition expressed in a modern vocabulary has been a goal of design for Korean architects presently. That has been a very complex puzzle and a difficult problem to solve. However, it’s essential to study the heritage of tradition, since tradition could be the motive of creation.

It is necessary to contact with nature which brings the urban house rich changes and variation during its life time(i.e., witnessing the blossoming and decaying of flowers). “Madang”(open court yard) was the very “nature” in ancient Korea. Save this picture!© Yongkwan KimSpatial Korean traits Eight places of “madang” located in different levels were planned to produce attractive and interesting drama of spaces. All the major spaces of this house were designed to have a direct relationship to “madang”. Entrance  court, basement courts Ⅰ&Ⅱ, jungja(pavilion), service court, inner court, and upper court Ⅰ&Ⅱ were all the “madangs” at different levels that linked each other with both horizontal and vertical circulation. There are interesting changes, variety, through the circulation between the “madang”. Save this picture!second floor & roof planIt is a very small site to have exterior spaces of desirable size by common layout of rooms at ground level. To have as wide an area of “madang” as possible, only a living room and a dining room are placed on he ground level; the others are either below ground or above ground. Moreover, the bed-zone-mass of the upper floor was built with a piloti structure; therefore, the space below can be used as “madang”, too. This so called “RU” type program brings the house several merits of architectural condition. First of all, it gives the inner court a comfortable atmosphere because of the surrounding “madangs” which play important roles. Secondly, it creates another “madang”, which was a part of the inner court, covered with a roof. Last, without any fence ( a solid fence cannot be built in this area according to the regional building code), it separates the house from public road, and, at the same time, it solves the problem of relationship between the “privacy” inside and the neighborhood outside. “Madang” is a buffer zone between the house and he public road. It is also the place to contact with the neighborhood.

The original house dated from the 60’s, is located in Moema, São Paulo, a traditional and very green neighbourhood, close to the Ibirapuera Park. The new language established by the remodelling, appears initially in the external wall. Elements in concrete and black metal completely modified the appearance of the entrance. On the front facade of the house the choice made was the U-glass system which allows the entrance of light as well as it guarantees privacy.

Environmental, Indigenous groups protest climate change

first_imgAnacortes, Wash. – From May 13 through May 15, the group “Break Free Pacific Northwest” held a weekend of actions to oppose global climate change, on and around March Point, a peninsula where two huge oil refineries owned by Tesoro Corp. and Shell Oil are located.  The peninsula, which is near Anacortes, sticks out for three miles into the Salish Sea, also known as Puget Sound. The actions included a march and rally led by Indigenous people, kayak actions on the water, a railroad track blockage with 52 arrests, and a three-day climate conference.Break Free PNW is composed of at least 40 environmental and social justice groups in alliance with Native peoples from around the Salish Sea area.  The movement is fighting to break free from fossil fuel use. But “the U.S. is the one who’s kept climate negotiations from having enforcement mechanisms,” said Sarrah Tekola from the allied organization, “Women of Color Speak Out.”BreakFreePNW.org says, “A just transition from fossil fuels provides real alternatives to communities dependent on dirty infrastructure, protects workers’ job security as fossil fuel use declines … supporting the communities most impacted by fossil fuels, here and around the world.”Some 150 participants seized the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) tracks leading into March Point as the weekend got underway.  The next day, Saturday, May 14, was the Indigenous Day of Action.  The local Swinomish People and other Native peoples led a march of nearly 1,000 people for three miles up March Point, where a rally was held with speakers, dancers and drummers.Although March Point was on reservation land, the federal government took March Point from the Swinomish in the 19th century. At this action, people in a hundred kayaks came over from Anacortes to demonstrate and converged with the rally.On May 15, state, local and BNSF cops with guns drawn came and arrested 52 demonstrators who had pitched their occupation tents on the tracks for nearly two days.  No trains had been able to come through during this time.  The remaining 100 occupiers, in defiance, marched up the tracks a ways to attempt a second occupation, but the cops got in front of them.  Those arrested were released after six hours.Organizers are committed to stopping all ten large terminal or infrastructure projects for coal, liquefied natural gas, oil, etc., scheduled for the Northwest.  The Lummi Nation was honored at the Saturday rally for stopping the building of a proposed massive coal port on their land by the SSA Marine company.Break Free events were held around the globe from May 3 through May 15, with 30,000 participants in 20 civil disobedience actions, according to the BreakFree2016 website.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This year’s parade theme is “TCU’s Texan heritage in the heart of Cowtown – Where the West Begins!”Each float is expected to represent this theme. Floats will be judged on construction quality, design, color, creativity, spirit and crowd reaction.Building a float is no simple task. There is a 2015 Parade Float Handbook dedicated to this sole purpose, and the best floats take planning, dedication, and hard work.“I’ll be buying supplies up until the Sunday before the parade then we build it all week and we should be done the Thursday before,” said James Reis, chairperson for Beta Theta Pi’s float. “It’s so incredible to see the final product and how hard everyone works makes it all worth it.”Whether it’s being part of the building process, riding on the float or walking alongside, everyone seems to catch part of the TCU spirit.“Seeing all the people come watch that live around Fort Worth really shows the spirit of TCU,” Reis said.“It’s cool because you get to see more of the community,” said Calvin Layman, Pi Kappa Phi Homecoming float chair. “You get to see all the parents that bring their kids out so that’s pretty neat.
