Completing the casualty list are Richie Vernon, the Glasgow Warriors No 8, who sustained a blow to his calf in the international against Wales; and his club-mate, hooker Dougie Hall, who missed the Welsh match on account of a shoulder problem. Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: “We have made the decision now that all three of our injured backs will miss this weekend’s international so that brings clarity to our preparations. We wish all of them a speedy recovery. Our medical staff will continue to treat and monitor our injured forwards. “Everybody was hurting after the display against Wales but we must now focus on the challenge that Ireland bring and there’s absolute determination to bounce back against them at Murrayfield on Sunday.” Scotland players dejected after their defeat to Wales during the 2011 Six NationsSCOTLAND WILL be without three players due to injury for Sunday’s RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Ireland at Murrayfield (kick-off 3pm).

The point of departure was the rectangular volume, from whichemerged a configuration of apposite urban proportions. The defining features of the external envelope, which exploit the specificitiesof the location, are recesses, projections and indentations whichhave been deliberately arranged to fashion a meandering figurethat injects an element of dynamism into the immobile structure.Upon entering, the occupants and users decide whether they wishto remain on the ground floor or make their way to the lower level.On both floors the planning has proceeded ‘from the outside in’,thus producing a sequence of interlinked rooms.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe hillside location of the property means that the quality of theinterventions also enhances the topography. A common atrium connects the two floors that occupy the terrain. This space has beencleverly enclosed by a u-shaped structure. Thanks to a bridge on theentrance level the atrium affords a view from the forecourt – showingthe house in cross-section, as it were – down to the lower-lyingareas. An additional enclosed atrium emphasises the projectingnorth-western corner where the living room is situated.On the north side the architectural interplay between the open andclosed sections of the external envelope becomes readily comprehensibleas an integral element of the building process but withoutdeveloping into an end in itself.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThis part of the house is designedprimarily to provide an array of different views of the nearby lake,although the varying public dimension of the individual spaces –from the living room to the bedroom – is clearly discernible. Theareas for private use are situated on the southern entrance side.The transition between the traffic-calmed access road and the siteis particularly fascinating. Two sections of wall, one of which servesto enclose the property and the other to secure privacy for the poolbehind, underline the difference in approach to the building assuch.

The daily has also been fined 15 million pounds (1350 euros). Nhial Bol is being held the day before at Omdurman prison to serve a six-month sentence if the fine goes unpaid The complaint against him was made by the governmental Presidential Peace Advisory office which also charged that the journalist discussed abductions for slavery with a visiting delegation from the United States. The journalist and the newspaper are expected to appeal the sentences. Alfred Taban believes the authorities may seize the newspaper’s assests (two computers and the office furniture). News News Sudan : Press freedom still in transition a year after Omar al-Bashir’s removal RSF_en Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent In a letter to Minister of the Interior, Abdel Rahim Mohamed Hussein, Reporters Sans Frontières (RSF – Reporters Without Borders) protested against the arrest of Nhial Bol, managing editor of the Khartoum Monitor, and against a fine imposed on the only English-language daily in the country. Robert Ménard, RSF general secretary, asked the minister to release the journalist. “Levying an exorbitant fine on the newspaper demonstrates that the judiciary authorities are determined to close it down”, he added. The organisation noted that the Khartoum Monitor had been censored several times during 2001 and Alfred Taban, a member of the newspaper’s board and correspondent for BBC and Reuters had been arrested three times.
