Tom Palmer – Stade Francais and England

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Learn more about Tom’s teammates from Stade Francais…James Haskell Tom Palmer preparing for a lineout against South AfricaThe England second-row has finally found his stride in Test rugby this year.England’s stunning performance against Australia at Twickenham during the Autumn internationals left many of their long-suffering fans – and the media – shocked by how well the team had played. Manager Martin Johnson wasn’t surprised, however, telling me: “That performance didn’t come from the clouds, you know. Look at Paris, look at Sydney – it was coming.” Johnson as usual, may have a point, but even he must have been taken aback by the form of Tom Palmer in that victory over the Wallabies.Second-row Palmer has been one of the enigmas of the England set-up ever since making his Test debut in 2001; he had bags of potential but he just wasn’t delivering the world-class performances we all knew that he was capable of.However, Palmer’s graduation onto the world stage started in the summer, when he first formed his partnership with Courtney Lawes in England’s one-point win in Sydney, and his best performance in the red-rose jersey came against the same side five months later.The identity of the opponents can give some clue to Palmer’s recent form, as could the new law directives that referees have been working under since the middle of the Six Nations. Quick ball is now king in a sport that had been dragged through a season of kick-tennis that sent us all to sleep. And a fast game suits Palmer perfectly; with the ball now in play more than ever before, he’s able to get his hands on it and maraud through the midfield.Alongside Lawes, who looks good enough to keep his place in the side for the next ten years, Palmer also calls the lineouts. And while his running of the set-piece doesn’t reach the A+ levels of Steve Borthwick, he got better and better as the autumn Tests wore on. He has clearly benefited enormously from the extra time the players now have with England, especially as it has brought him into contact with renowned knee specialist Bill Knowles, who put the careers of Richard Hill, Austin Healey and footballer Michael Owen – amongst others – back on track. Although Palmer doesn’t have a current knee injury, Knowles’s grasp of the human body has proved crucial. “I’ve had some knee issues in the past and he had me doing some exercises to get my glutes working better and that seems to have helped me feel fitter than I have for a while,” says Palmer.Palmer, who has bulked up by around nine pounds in the past year, has endured a stop-start international career – there was a five-year gap between his first and second caps – but he has made a significant breakthrough in the last six months, starting England’s last half-dozen Tests. And he is delighted to have Lawes in the boiler room with him, saying: “Courtney and I haven’t played 50 times together, but we’re starting to establish ourselves as a partnership. Hopefully that will continue through the Six Nations. We complement each other well and are a good match. We’re similar players and the way the game is going is suited to how we play.“It’s partly down to a change in attitude of the coaches, in terms of which players they want, and the new laws. In order to encourage open and attacking play, you need guys who are mobile and can carry the ball. I like it when I get my hands on the ball. Our game plan at the moment suits players like me.”center_img Palmer is a cosmopolitan fellow – no one could accuse him of letting the grass grow under his feet. Born in Haringey, North London, he grew up in Scotland and then spent 18 months receiving a world-class rugby education in Otago as a teenager. His professional career began at Leeds, then he joined Wasps before moving to Paris at the start of last season, ensuring that he had all the correct release clauses in his Stade Français contract so he could make England training sessions.“I’m enjoying my time in Paris, and it’s been good for my career – a good experience for me,” says Palmer. “I’m just happy that I’m playing well and getting picked for England.” England were rightly delighted by their performance against Australia last month, but a hard-fought victory over Samoa as well as a 21-11 defeat in their final Test against South Africa meant that there was a feeling of disappointment at the end of the autumn series. But Palmer believes the team will have learnt a lot from all the matches.“If you look at the whole series we played some good rugby,” he says. “For me the best thing has been the experience I’ve picked up. I believe the more you play at a high level, the better you get, and these six starts have shown me that the more I play for England, the better I’ll get. “Apart from the Australia game, as a team we’ve been let down by a lack of clinical finishing. Even against South Africa we were in their 22 for long periods and didn’t come away with anything. At the top level you can’t afford to do that – you have to keep taking your points when you have the opportunities.”Palmer has certainly taken his opportunity this year and should do the same in the Six Nations.last_img read more

The films unpack the themes taught in the Difference Course that was created by the Archbishop’s Reconciliation Ministry team.The film series, “Faith in a Conflicted World,” features five videos in which the archbishop teaches three habits based on the life and ministry of Jesus that reflect His call on us to be peacemakers. These habits form the central teaching of the Difference Course, which further equips Christians to put them into practice in their daily lives.In the films, the archbishop reflects movingly on his personal experiences of conflict. These include his 2019 visit to the site of Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar. The Archbishop prostrated himself on the ground on the site where hundreds of unarmed Indian civilians peacefully demonstrating for independence were shot and killed by British troops in 1919.Read the entire article here.

The project should include a house-studio program for a photographer and his couple, in a private development in the province of Buenos Aires. The land belonged to an old property whose landscaping was designed by the renowned landscape architect Carlos Thays around 1940. On the lot, seven Himalayan cedars, that should be conserved, occupied the middle of the permitted buildable area.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe presence of these cedars, with their luminous and material quality, acts as the trigger for the project. The longitudinal volume places itself parallel to the west boundary, positioning the main facade towards the forest. The volume splits into two blocks, one of them turning gently back into the forest, allowing a path for the main entrance. The ground floor, which houses the domestic program, connects with its surrounding through the opening of a patio in between the dining room and the living room, enhancing the crossed views between the interior and the exterior.Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio BaBOThe volume of the first floor houses the working area. While displacing it towards the same west boundary, it opens an exterior path which gives access to the rooms. These exterior circulation on top of the roof creates a new visual relation towards the threes, on a new level. Regarding the materials, the study of the industrialized black brick and its expressive possibilities, through different combinations, allowed us to obtain a single vertical module which defines the whole facade.Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio BaBOThe vertical brick disposition is literally analogous to the corrugation of the tree crust and its willingness to generate rhythms of light and shadow, to sieve the presence of the house through the trees.Save this picture!Floor PlanAnalyse the binomial build object / natural environment.

The bell tower “El templat” (S. XIV, rebuilt in the 40’s), the buttresses on the church of El Salvador (S. XIII, national artistic-historical monument) and the Capilla de la Comunión neoclassical dome (S. XVIII), constitute the key elements in the Historical Centre of Burriana, that was declared Cultural Interest Site in 2007. The main purpose of the building is to highlight this surroundings and emphasise its importance.Save this picture!© Diego OpazoThe proposal is to create a compact and deep building, with North-South orientation and crossed air ventilation, that has been organized like this: living rooms to South (to the plaza El Pla, having an unorthodox architecture and social representation) and bedrooms to North (to the garden) in the traditional way, which is so effective in terms of thermic issues. This generates a nice connection with the contiguous monuments.Save this picture!© Diego OpazoThe way the facade is composed is so conditioned by some regulations (Urban General Plan of Burriana, Special Plan to protect the Historical Centre of Burriana, and having the influence of the church of El Salvador, which is Cultural Interest Site), that contrast with the domestic path to the garden, almost in the same way a part of the Capilla de la Comunión invades it, standing in the horizon like a little tower.Save this picture!© Diego OpazoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Diego OpazoBeside that, some brick walls, with no architectural interest, reflect the Southern sun with some grace. One of the flats is on first floor, while the other one is located on second and third, taking advantage of the sloping roof right in the living room. Both of them are really linked with the environment through some terraces and permeable facades. Save this picture!© Diego OpazoThe ornamental motif in the facade, which is also inside the building, comes from the memory of this place, reminding the pelican exhibited in don Emilio old library. There is many people in Burriana that remember that name already. That was the main argument to be negociated with the institutions in order to be able to build a more opened facade than it looked in the first place due to the strong regulations. The finishing of the roof is a small gesture that tries to intensify the image of the bell tower and the Capilla de la Comunión, mitigating the vision of the dividing walls and involving the sky in the project.Save this picture!Elevation “COPY” ArchDaily Area:  520 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Photographs 2018 CopyAbout this officeJuan Marco arquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsBurrianaSpainPublished on October 26, 2018Cite: “EL PLA Building / Juan Marco arquitectos” [Edificio EL PLA / Juan Marco arquitectos] 26 Oct 2018.

With the Internet accounting for 9% of all Christmas sales and an estimated 130 million shopping deliveries, an online element to a Christmas fundraising appeal has never been more important.According to Richard Roche, Head of Multi-Channel Retail at Royal Mail: “Half of the UK population shopped online last Christmas, spending more than £3.5 billion online.” Given the increase in online sales already underway for this Christmas, Royal Mail has published a seven-step “Retail Readiness Guide”.Although aimed at for-profit retailers, its advice will still be relevant to trading arms of charities and some will be relevant to charities seeking online donations. Advice covers “Look back, prepare and stock up”, “educating consumers”, “Christmas in November” and “return to sender”. The advice isn’t new, but it’s a useful checklist, although one that, at this stage of the year, is a little late to be adopting from scratch.
