Photo: Getty Images It’s the final that was predicted but also the final that everyone wanted to see. England will play New Zealand at Kingspan Stadium in Belfast on Saturday night. England‘s game against France was an enthralling battle that highlighted just how competitive women’s rugby can be. It was 3-3 at half-time, with Emily Scarratt and Shannon Izar slotting penalties, and the French had played the more threatening rugby as they punished England’s ill-discipline. The defending champions started the second half strongly, however, and it was they who were working through the phases deep in opposition territory rather than the French. First Scarratt slotted another penalty and then Sarah Bern barrelled over after a series of pick-and-gos close to the French line. Megan Jones, who had pulled off a brilliant try-saving tackle on Julie Annery on the hour mark, added gloss to the victory with a try in the final minute as France spilt the wall when they tried to attack from behind their own line. In the end, England won 20-3 to reach their fifth successive final. Last ditch: Megan Jones with a try-saving tackle on Julie Annery. Photo: Getty ImagesCaptain Sarah Hunter believes England’s rotation policy during the tournament will pay dividends in the final. “I’m ecstatic to get to another World Cup final,” she said. “It will take another step up on Saturday. We still have something left in the tank and that’s what you need in a World Cup final.”And head coach Simon Middleton paid tribute to his squad’s calmness under pressure against France. “They are the last group to panic,” he said. “They know when to step up, they have been in a lot of tough situations this year and have come out on the right side of them all. Now we have one more to do.”The one concern for England is whether Danielle Waterman will be fit for the final. The full-back went off for an HIA in the first half and didn’t return to the pitch. It is unlikely she would be able to pass the head injury protocols to be fit for Saturday’s game against New Zealand given the short turnaround.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREThe Black Ferns’ passage to the final was somewhat easier than England’s as they ran in seven tries against the USA, Portia Woodman scoring four of them in a 45-12 win. The States were competitive and scored a couple of decent tries of their own, with their back three particularly impressive, but were overwhelmed in the final quarter.Having been part of the New Zealand side that failed to reach the last four in 2014, centre Kelly Brazier is delighted to be playing in the final this time. “It’s pretty special,” she said. “I was there in 2014 when we missed out and that feeling never goes. We’re all excited to be in the final and hopefully we can win that cup again.”Over time: Portia Woodman scores one of her four tries against the States. Photo: Getty ImagesWoodman believes the team have improved since losing to England, who are slight favourites to win the final when looking at the Sportingbet odds, in Rotorua in the summer and said: “We’ve had such a long time together now and we’ve worked on things that didn’t go right in the June series. We’re not peaking yet.”The good news for both teams is that the match will be broadcast live on ITV and 5live, which should engage an even larger audience with women’s rugby.“We want to showcase our sport to the widest audience possible and to get prime time support is great,” said Hunter.Green machine: Alison Miller scored a great try for Ireland in their defeat by Australia. Photo: Getty ImagesIn the day’s other play-offs, Ireland lost 36-24 to Australia while Wales were humbled 52-0 by Canada. The Irish and Welsh will now play off for seventh place in the opening game at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday while Canada and the Wallaroos will battle it out for fifth place.Japan and Hong Kong will play off for 11th place after losing to Italy (22-0) and Spain (31-7) respectively, and the two European teams will battle for 9th place.last_img read more

This old country house is situated on a large hunting preserve of 1,200 acres in the Sierra de Aitana, north of the province of Alicante and just 15 km from sea, and therefore the house retains the Mediterranean flavor, surrounded by pines, oaks, olive and almond trees.Save this picture!© Mayte PieraThe building takes place at the top, enjoying breathtaking views. Both the existing volumes, and those created are sensitive to the topography, creating a U-shape. The existing buildings have shed the old tiles, exposing natural stone, while new volumes created have been coated with white cement mortar. This makes the new be clearly distinguished from the old. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe main building is facing south and is flanked by two other volumes embracing the large terrace, which serves as a link of the architectural ensemble, in addition to being an outdoor space designed with care and to detail. Presiding over this space we find a large solitary tree, it brings to the architecture the symbolism of the plant kingdom from its surroundings. It was a fundamental requirement to maintain this native banana, its significant presence acts as a thread between the house and landscape. Save this picture!© Mayte PieraThe organization of the dwelling is a result of the customer needs, and is grouped into three sections: The volume located west acts as an entry filter, giving access to the terrace which serves as distributor of the whole. This building accommodates an Arabic barbecue and oven, being the meeting place for lunches and informal dinners around two large tables with seating for 32 diners. The body in the east is intended for service, hosting kitchen, laundry, toilet, pantry and cold storage as well as housing for the landlords. Both bodies are of similar height, and all rooms are linked by glass doors to the outside, establishing a direct relationship with the terrace.

Save this picture!AxonometricThe understanding of pre-existing conditions led to a subtle intervention of the space with a system of patios and honesty in the construction methods.Save this picture!© Diego CosmeThe main challenge of the exercise was to do more with less: to solve an architectural scheme that extends a studio space on the ground floor, which separates from a new apartment on the first floor, and to maximize the living space, inside and outside. The aesthetics and form of the project rely on function and the use of apparent materials.Save this picture!© Diego CosmeSave this picture!© Diego CosmeThe usage of a series of patios allowed the house to be naturally ventilated and illuminated. Lining the walls with clay, a regional material that carries strength and contrast, renovated the space like lungs for contemplation. Save this picture!© Diego CosmeGiven the effort to abide by a certain budget the materials are completely exposed, naked. This urged the quality of manpower to be extremely high, due to the fact that the brick, slab, and beam and vault that were used stayed as final finishes. This represented great education for the team on regional construction methods. Vernacular textures were also used, found in the nearby area of the city. Such was the case of “junquillo”, a type of palm with a knotted stem, great strength and at the same time flexibility due to its height, found in Bucarelli, a region in the Sierra Gorda Queretana.

Frankie was one of the Hillsides youth who won the ensemble cast award for the short film Perfect Chemistry.One youth at Hillsides took home the best supporting actor award and six won the best ensemble cast during the Kids in the Spotlight Movies by Kids, For Kids Film Awards held Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the Fox Studios/Darryl F. Zanuck Theater. The teens also got the chance to walk the red carpet, meet celebrities, and dance the night away at the after party.One participating Hillsides teen perhaps summed up what his peers were feeling when he said, “This was the best night of my life.”The film festival and awards ceremony was the culmination of many months of work. The youth, with help from industry pros, wrote, cast, and acted in three short films that were made on the Hillsides campus. One of their acting coaches was NBC “Modern Family” star Ty Burrell, who acted as the host of the film awards. Before shooting the movies, they spent 10 weeks being trained in the essentials of screenwriting and filmmaking.The teens made three films, Perfect Chemistry, Different Position, and The New Comers. Perfect Chemistry won the best ensemble cast and a Hillsides youth who acted in Different Position won best supporting actor.“My personal goal for the kids is that they walk away knowing who they are just a little more, have more positive feelings about themselves, and are able to present their points of view just a little more clearly,” said Ramona McGee, the director of Hillsides group homes. “Judging from what I saw, we met those goals.”As part of the experience, the Hillsides teens were also dressed in donated gowns and suits, had their hair and makeup done, and traveled to the film festival in style via a limo-bus.Kids in the Spotlight, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides an arts and healing program to foster care facilities and schools throughout the city of Los Angeles and surrounding areas. The awards show is the sixth annual red carpet event that showcases and awards ten 10-minute films written by, casted by and starring underserved youth.
