first_imgSunday Apr 4, 2010 Simaika Mikaele huge hit at the Hong Kong Sevens Samoa won their third consecutive IRB World Series Sevens series last weekend in Hong Kong as they beat New Zealand in the final, elevating them into the lead of the world series for the first time.New Zealand, who had already knocked out both South Africa and Fiji, had taken the lead in the match following two quickfire tries from Kurt Baker. Samoa came back though through Simaika Mikaele, who scored two of his own to take them into the lead at halftime.Flyer Mikaele Pesamino then scored two for Samoa in the second half as they went on to take the 24-21 win in front of 40 000 people at the Hong Kong Stadium.This huge hit from try scorer Mikaele on Kiwi Ben Souness was felt around the ground. It’s perhaps symbolic of what’s been happening in the series of late, with the Samoans proving too powerful for the competition with their exciting brand of physicality mixed with raw speed and talent.Souness, to his credit, took a bit of time to recover but then jumped back up and played on. There haven’t been too many requests for Sevens highlights of late, despite plenty of quality action taking place in recent tournaments. Please remember that if you’d like to see something in particular, you should place a request via email.

Located in Chalon-sur-Saône, the Bellevue district consists of a variety of building typologies typical to that of a city’s suburbs. Situated on an enclosed site and set back from the street, this project responses to its surrounding environment and to the design brief that imposed a timber construction solution.Save this picture!ImplantationA set of fragmented intermediate housing (20 dwellings) and a row of terraced houses (6 dwellings) are arranged around a central planted alley leaving space for vegetation and outdoor spaces.Save this picture!© David FoesselGenesis of the projectThe design competition launched by OPAC 71 initially envisaged the construction of two distinct buildings of 3 to 4 floors and collective dwellings. To make the most of the site, we proposed to put as much emphasis on voids as on solids and offer lower scale typologies.Save this picture!© David FoesselThe project is thus built around alternating free functional spaces and built volumes depending on the qualities and constraints of the site. From the street entrance to the northern site limit, entrance, outdoor parking, intermediate housing, alley, gardens and individual houses, creates an urban sequence that matches the scale of the neighboring buildings.Save this picture!© David FoesselDesigning voidsThe fragmented volumes of the intermediate housing create a filter between the parking and the central alley. The voids help create sequences prolonged through the footbridges and external staircases offering remarkable frames towards the city.Save this picture!PlansIntermediate dwellings create a dialogue between the street and the row of individual housing behind. The interior layout allows for a diversity of typologies with unobstructed views towards the exterior.Save this picture!© David FoesselThe built volumes are clad in vertical wooden. This play of vibration extends along the terraces through separation screens ensuring solar and visual protection to each dwelling.Save this picture!© David FoesselThe quality of the outdoor spaces, an essential component of the project,  leave a large place to evergreen vegetation. The birch trees will introduce a slender silhouette creating a dialogue with the built volumes.Save this picture!© David FoesselA paved central alley allows access to the row of houses. Each house has its own a private garden behind purple haze hedges.  A wooden lattice awning protects the south facing living rooms from solar gain. To the back of the houses, the alternating volumes of kitchen and patio ensure the articulation with the existing urban fabric.Save this picture!Courtesy of ODILE+GUZY architectesParticular attention has been paid to the fifth façade. The tiled roofs of the houses create a colorful landscape to overlooking housing. Contrasting voluntarily with the monotone facades of the surrounding dwellings, it recalls the characteristic pattern of historic buildings in Burgundy.Save this picture!© David FoesselDwellEach of the dwellings are double oriented, bathrooms and kitchens have been placed along the façade and benefit from direct natural light and ventilation.Save this picture!© David FoesselEntrances are placed in order to maximize space for the living areas. The kitchen and living rooms are extended by generous gardens, patios or balconies according to each typology.Spread common areas, paths, external staircases, allow a wide variety of uses, practices and social interactions.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanConstructive principlesUsing a cost-effective wood construction method was a priority. The structure, wooden posts, concrete floor slab and wooden façade framework meet the normative requirements in an economical way while eliminating intermediate support elements inside the housings to guarantee the flexibility of the spaces. This simple solution is made possible by the rationality of the plans and a rigorous superposition of the typologies.Save this picture!© David FoesselThe projects facade is made of thermally modified wood spruce to ensure a harmonious aging of the cladding. Over the years it will achieve an charcoal grey tint and contrast with the white metal elements of the façades.Save this picture!© David FoesselProject gallerySee allShow lessBlue House / De Rosee SaSelected ProjectsH-Shaped House with Office / sam architectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:54 Rue des Lieutenants Chauveau, 71100 Chalon-sur-Saône, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

The funds will be used to develop a new Older, Wiser, Fitter programme in two of London’s poorest boroughs. The programme will enable older people to remain healthy and active, helping them train in new skills such as IT, and providing complimentary therapies.

This semester will be his last after 37 years at TCU.In his 69 years, Wong has just about seen it all. While at college in the 1960s, he studied gangs in his hometown of San Francisco’s Chinatown. He’s toured Europe and served on boards for outreach programs like the United Way and United Community Centers.What he hasn’t done, however, is learned to play the ukulele.“It would be nice if I could get the coordination and just chill back with a little bit of scotch and start to learn how to play,” he said, smiling as he leaned back in his office chair. “I know if I practice, my wife would go bonkers.”It was his desire for more free time and less stress that motivated him to announce his retirement, he said.Wong has taught sociology at the university level for over 40 years, starting at a community college in California. In 1981, Wong joined the TCU faculty, teaching an Introduction to Sociology class in the trailer that housed the sociology department.“Now with everything that’s going on, I’ve never seen so much change,” he said.The venue isn’t the only thing that’s changed since he started here. When Wong came to TCU, 91 percent of all 6,558 students were white. Only 4 percent of tenured faculty were minorities, according to a 1985 report from TCU’s Office of Institutional Research. A 2016-2017 report from the office shows that minority faculty has reached roughly 15.5 percent.Sociology professor Morrison Wong joined the TCU faculty in 1981. (Photo courtesy of Morrison Wong)Sociology alumna Amber Havonec-Carey met Wong at a department banquet and described him as selfless and supportive.“When he congratulated me on getting the sociology department award, he showed genuine interest and excitement,” she said.Hovanec-Carey added that she was shocked to learn he was retiring, but was glad he’d have the opportunity to pursue his hobbies.She also said Wong will leave behind a legacy emphasizing compassion and encouragement.“From the few years I have known him, it is obvious that he is well-respected and has positively influenced not just the department but TCU campus-wide,” she said.Students on RateMyProfessor.com have consistently rated Wong as a difficult grader, but many also described his stories as entertaining and engaging.One anonymous student’s rating described Wong as kind and understanding. They also gave him a 5.0 difficulty score – the highest score available.“Dr. Wong was an outstanding professor,” the student’s review read. “I looked forward to coming to class and learning something new and applicable to my life.”Wong’s old-school teaching style is something sociology professor and Department of Sociology and Anthropology chair Mike Katovich called “the chalk and talk approach.”“He had a very serious side and a down-to-business quality,” he explained, remembering his first meeting with Wong. “But also a playful side to him that we all liked.”That playfulness has been on full display every December, as Katovich said Wong can be seen on campus wearing a Santa Claus hat.After taking over Wong’s role as chair of the department this semester, Katovich said it is Wong’s counsel and friendship he’ll miss the most.“He’s always been a very calm influence,” he said. “He puts things into perspective right away.”Sociology professor Morrison Wong has taught sociology for over 40 years. He will retire in December. (Photo courtesy of Morrison Wong)Teaching is something Wong said has kept him young and “with it.” Still, he said he looks forward to spending time with family and friends.Wong said it shouldn’t be difficult finding things to do once he leaves. On top of his plans to bike ride, travel and drink scotch, he said he has to make up for lost time with his wife.“My wife has a honey-do list that I’ve been able to postpone for 37 years,” he said. That list is accruing interest as time goes on.He said he also intends to remain involved with local charitable organizations.“Most retired people, they say ‘I am so busy; I’m even more busy than when I worked,’ ” Wong said. “So, we’ll see.” Twitterlast_img read more
