Test span: 1987-97New Zealand caps: 58 (54 starts)Test points: 89 (17T, 3DG) Strong and agile, Zinnie was a back-row like no other. “He had better kicking and handling skills than some fly-halves playing international rugby,” former England captain Will Carling wrote in 2007. “You align that with his strength and ability to read the game – he was unique.”He captained Auckland Blues to Super 12 titles in 1996 and 1997 and also played for New Zealand Maori.Brooke’s 1995 drop-goal proved to be no one-off, as he kicked another against South Africa in 1996 and his third and last in Test rugby versus Wales in November 1997. The 17 Test tries he scored was a world record for a forward when he won his last cap, against England at Twickenham in 1997.center_img How many forwards are best remembered for kicking a drop-goal? Not many, but the extraordinary kick Zinzan Brooke slotted from almost 50m out during New Zealand’s 1995 World Cup semi-final win over England left an indelible imprint on the memory of anyone who saw it.The three points helped New Zealand win 45-29 and stole just a little of the limelight from Jonah Lomu, who battered his way over for four tries that day.It was the 31st Test in Brooke’s 58-cap career and the dominant role the No 8 was playing in the All Blacks side at that stage disguises the stuttering start he made.The son of a farmer from the countryside just north of Auckland, Brooke first turned out for the All Blacks against Argentina in June 1987, but had to wait until July 1989 for his second cap as Buck Shelford was still first choice.By 1991 Brooke was firmly established in the New Zealand side and the following year he was joined by Robin, one of his four brothers, who won 62 caps. Brooke stayed on in London, playing for Harlequins in 39 Premiership and Heineken Cup games from 1998-2000 and coaching the club until 2002. He turned out for Coventry in 2002-03, then played for his new home-town club, Windsor, where the father of six is still a member and coaches youngsters including his son.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

It was most popular place in Buyeo-gun in which the products from across the nation were actively interchange, before the bridge was built. Since the Baekje Great Bridge was built to connect Buyeo in 1968, visitors have declined gradually, and the traditional market and shopping districts were closed; this area became isolated. Now, the SEGAN Project (Urban Regeneration Project) will take place here, where is just as it was in the old days. First, SEGAN Project purchased buildings there were used to be modern commercial facilities; one of those buildings is a ‘blue roof house’ located in 8, Subuk-ro 41beon-gil. (As the roofing materials are layered in blue paint, it’s called as ‘the blue roof house.’)Save this picture!© Hong SeokgyuThere’s large vacant lot in front of ‘the blue roof house’, in which the traditional market was held to promote growth of town. The blue roof house used to be an old, humble restaurant where sold well-cooked meal and soups for visitors. As time went by, it’s transformed into a residential space.

Stratford Skyscraper offers a new residential paradigm by re-envisioning high-rise living and how London’s rich variety of residential typologies can be brought into a vertically stacked building, creating homes that are not only generous in the area but also in volume. The brief centered on people and how they interact with each other in high-rise living. The 248 residences are a combination of spacious loft-style apartments and boutique single-storey homes, topped by a dramatic three-bedroom penthouse and providing a total of 13 different apartment types. Save this picture!© Ed Reeve, courtesy MLCManhattan Loft Corporation Founder and CEO, Harry Handelsman is excited about the impact The Stratford Hotel and Lofts will have on London: “Picture the perfect 21st-century hotel, what do you see? Impeccable facilities, immaculate service, and a great location are all vital. But it needs that unique pulse those famous Manhattan hotels had, like the Carlyle, the Chelsea. A club, meeting place, hotel, and home that never treats you like you’re ordinary”.Save this picture!© Luke Hayes, courtesy MLCAs designers, the challenge was to design a vertical community that would work as a modern neighborhood – that would reflect the area’s diversity and, supporting this vital social dimension, would encourage easy conversation and new connections.  Working as an integrated group of architects and engineers, the design team shaped the tower’s innovative steel and concrete form to create impressive communal spaces that would provide a natural platform for interaction, while working from the inside-out to maximize views and natural light. Save this picture!© Oliver Douglas, courtesy MLCSave this picture!Save this picture!© Luke Hayes, courtesy MLCThe hotel occupies the lower six floors and is topped by the first of three dramatic roof gardens, which are carved from the building’s ‘stacked’ profile at levels 7, 25 and 36. Each garden has a unique character, from quiet pathways through wildflowers to a party area, with space for barbecues and a bar. The tower’s strong social dimension is established from the moment visitors set foot inside the building, with a triple-height entrance lobby that is shared by both hotel guests and apartment residents. The double cantilevers that define the gardens also articulate this ethos, and give the building a bold presence on the skyline, signaling the eastwards momentum of the capital’s creative heart.Save this picture!© Luke Hayes, courtesy MLCStratford Skyscraper is a double-cantilevered tower with a uniquely engineered concrete and steel frame that has allowed the incorporation of three spectacular sky gardens dramatically carved into the building’s profile. The building has an unusual tower-structure, in which a cantilevered post-tensioned concrete supports the majority of the floors and steel-framed perimeter truss system at level 10 and 28.Save this picture!© Rory Gardiner, courtesy MLCSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rory Gardiner, courtesy MLCThe Stratford promises to combine world-class hospitality, architecture, and art to encourage a new generation of long and short-term guests to make the East End their home from home.

Made available in PDF versions by its publisher, the book can now be downloaded in English and Portuguese from the RSF website.“Making this book available shows that censorship is never a solution,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk. “By trying to suppress this information, Angola’s generals have in fact raised its profile and increased the visibility of Marques’ work in the media.”Despite reaching an agreement with the authorities on 21 May under which all charges would be dropped, Marques was given a suspended six-month jail sentence a week later and was ordered to withdraw the book from circulation.For more information about freedom of information in Angola and the Marques case, click here.Angola is ranked 123rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borderspress freedom index.

All three criticized religious fundamentalism, defended freedom of expression and thought, and preached toleration.Aged 33, Das was hacked to death in broad daylight on a street in the northeastern city of Sylhet by four masked men with machetes.A staunch defender of secularism, Das wrote for Mukto-Mona (Free Thought), a website created by Avijit Roy, a US blogger of Bangladeshi origin who was himself murdered during a visit to Dhaka on 26 February. Das also wrote for the quarterly Jukti (Logic) and headed the Council for Science and Reason.He had been getting threats from Islamist extremists for months in connection with his blog posts. Sylhet’s police chief said the police are investigating the radical group Ansar Al-Islam’s claim on Twitter that Das was killed by Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).“We condemn this third barbaric murder of a secular blogger in three months in Bangladesh and we fear the possibility of more attacks of this kind,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “What are the authorities waiting for to find and punish those responsible? Freedom of information and thought seems exposed to a growing danger. It is vital to protect Bangladesh’s free-thinkers and not yield to impunity.”The other blogger to be killed in the past three months was Washiqur Rahman, who was hacked to death in Dhaka on 30 March. According to several sources, both Das and Roy were on hit-lists of atheist bloggers compiled by Islamist militants.Bangladesh is ranked 146th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

first_img RSF_en January 22, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Four journalists threatened and expelled from Nakhchivan for trying to investigate disappearance of mother and son Reporters Without Borders deplores the fact that four journalists – Malahat Nasibova of the news agency Turan, Hakimeldostu Mehdiyev, Mahman Mehdiyev and Elman Abbasov of the Institute for Reporter Freedom and Safety (IRFS) – were prevented from working on 16 January in Nakhchivan, an autonomous region that is separated from the rest of Azerbaijan by a strip of Armenian territory.They were threatened and then expelled from Nakhchivan after trying to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a mother and her son two weeks ago in the town of Sadarak, in the northwest of the region.“The way these four journalists were mistreated and threatened is unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They were prevented from doing their job for no valid reason. The Azerbaijani authorities are clearly determined not just to obstruct but also to crush press freedom. We appeal to the government to allow independent news media the freedom to choose the stories they cover.”The four reporters went Sadarak to look into the disappearance of Khanymzer Huseynova and her son Elvyn. As they approached the Huseynov family home, they were insulted by men in civilian dress and were told they needed a “permit” to visit the province. One of the journalists, Hakimeldostu Mehdiyev, was threatened with physical violence. They were then put on a bus and expelled from the province.The journalists think the men in civilian dress were officials as they all wore badges with the photo of former President Heydar Aliyev, the father of Ilham Aliyev, who succeeded him as president in 2003.Elvyn Huseynov was one of seven young people who were arrested on 24 December for allegedly trying to disconnect the lights of a New Year’s tree in Sadarak. The parents initially filed a complaint against the arresting police officers, but they all later retracted, with the exception of Elvyn’s parents, who were themselves then arrested. Elvyn’s father was subsequently placed in a psychiatric hospital but Elvyn and his mother have been missing since 8 January.
