Eddie Jones attacks Wales’s Alun Wyn Jones

Eddie Jones has lit the fuse before England’s Six Nations showdown with Wales by lashing out at Alun Wyn Jones, describing his behaviour against Scotland as “out of order” and revealing he has complained to World Rugby about the opposing captain. The England head coach has taken issue with how his namesake appeared to urge the French referee Pascal Gaüzère to consult the television match official before allowing Finn Russell to convert Peter Horne’s consolation try. As a result, the Australian went on the offensive, hitting out at what he perceived to be “contrived behaviour”, and suggesting it compromised Gaüzère’s integrity.To get more sport news, you can visit shine news official website.

“I thought that was right out of order,” Jones said. “When he tried to stop the referee from allowing the kick at goal … we can’t have that in the game. I really hope World Rugby don’t allow that to creep into the game. I’ve said something to World Rugby about it, I feel that strongly because we’ve got to respect the integrity of the referee.

“We’ve got one of the most difficult games to referee and the game only gets more complex. The players are bigger, faster, stronger – there are quicker decisions from the referee and if we don’t respect the integrity of the game we’re going to lose part of the game.”

Shortly before the Six Nations Championship began, World Rugby issued a number of directives for referees to focus on, including the kind of back-chat to officials prevalent in football. Jones perceived the Wales captain’s actions as “borrowed from another sport” – a thinly veiled reference to the directives – and did all he could to put the referee on Saturday, Jérôme Garcès, on alert.

“Garcès is a very experienced referee,” he said. “He’s got plenty of big-match experience, he knows how to handle interesting moments in games. He won’t let Alun Wyn Jones intimidate him. Garcès won’t tolerate that sort of stuff. He won’t let Alun Wyn Jones referee the game.”Television replays of the incident appear to show that Gaüzère was already planning to consult the TMO before Alun Wyn Jones approached him. The Wales captain still appeared to call for a review and planted his left foot in front of the ball, thereby ensuring Russell could not kick at goal. Gaüzère awarded the try upon reviewing it, before Russell swiftly converted at the death of Wales’s 34-7 victory.As captain, Alun Wyn Jones is within his rights to approach the referee and in the past Eddie Jones has previously lauded how well Dylan Hartley “manages officials”. During the autumn internationals there was a notable incident during England’s victory against Australia when Owen Farrell, who had assumed the captaincy with Hartley off the field, successfully remonstrated with the referee, Ben O’Keeffe, to ensure a Stephen Moore try was reviewed and subsequently disallowed. At the time Eddie Jones said: “If the referee accepts the way he spoke to him was all right then that’s all right for me.”

ideas lab in shanghai references vintage subversive technology

large pipes, spiral staircases and echoes of an industrial period accent the ideas lab, designed by shanghai-based x+living as a place to define the information age. riffing on icons of a time gone by in order to give face to a present one – that’s the idea behind the project which transforms a vintage factory and provides a space for new ideas, whilst helping to remember some old ones too.the studio was inspired in particular by the similarities between the information age of today and the steam age of the past, interested in both their subversive power and contribution to the development of world business.Find the more shanghai news from SHINE.

so x+living adjoined the two, using old factory prototypes as the basis for their design, mapping symbols of the previous era and re-using them within a modern framework. the space itself would eventually offer different retail spaces including eating and drinking, and offices for businesses.whilst inspired by factory settings, the architects cut off the complex parts of those studied, keeping only the ones that could correspond to a new purpose. this included large reaction tanks, energy delivery pipes and walking platforms, all spaces that could be newly defined as research areas, relaxation spaces or routes throughout the lab.
the overall look sees the factory restored using a minimalist approach, where clean and cool concrete depicts the concise and efficient character of the space. meanwhile, desaturated reds offer a dash of colour highlighting and drawing the eye to different areas throughout. using the different levels, x+living has divided the factory into commercial and educational uses, linked by their awareness of one another. whilst the ground space uses the reaction tanks to design new retail spaces, on the second floor, similar components have been restored to provide shared work platforms for research and development staff.
meanwhile energy delivery pipes have been used to conceal elements of the building’s inner-workings, for example air conditioning cables or utility pipelines. elsewhere these tubes define other spaces, such as a dining area which uses the pipeline as a kind of marking in the floor plan.

Weight loss interventions that work

Weight loss interventions that work

If changing your diet and exercise habits has failed to help you achieve the results you hoped for, weight loss medication can be an option.
However, it is important to seek out a physician who is board-certified in obesity medicine who can help select the appropriate drug based on your medical history. Only a professional can responsibly help you manage the risks and benefits of different drugs, according to Sue Cummings, a registered dietitian who was clinical programs coordinator at the Massachusetts General Hospital Weight Center for the past 20 years.
Weight loss medications are typically indicated for those with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or a BMI of 27 or higher with health conditions such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. A person who is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds has a BMI of 30.4; online tools can help you calculate your BMI. Though there are exceptions, “in general, that’s where we start treating people,” said Dr. Louis Aronne, director of the Comprehensive Weight Control Center at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian. Drugs are typically prescribed along with diet and physical activity changes.
Since there is a broad range of medications available, finding one that will work is almost always possible, according to Aronne, who co-authored the Endocrine Society’s clinical practice guidelines for the pharmacological management of obesity.
Identifying the right match is key, as a drug may or may not be appropriate for someone depending on their health history. For example, if someone has uncontrolled high blood pressure, you wouldn’t prescribe phentermine (a weight loss drug approved for short-term use), Aronne explained. In order for a weight loss drug to be approved for long-term use, it must have two years of data showing that it is safe and it works.
In general, a medication can be considered effective for weight management if, after one year of treatment, at least 35% of those in the drug group (and about double the proportion of people of the placebo group) lose at least 5% of their weight.
Weight loss drugs approved for long-term use include orlistat (brand name Xenical), lorcaserin (Belviq) and liraglutide (Saxenda) as well as the combination drugs naltrexone-bupropion (Contrave) and phentermine-topiramate (Qsymia).In one recent study, these drugs helped overweight or obese people lose at least 5% of their body weight at the end of a year — that’s at least 10 pounds if you weigh 200 — compared with a placebo. Qsymia and Saxenda were associated with the highest odds of achieving that amount of weight loss.
Losing 5% to 10% of your body weight is associated with improved blood pressure, triglycerides and blood sugar, factors that lower the risk for heart disease and diabetes.

medical condition

medical condition

A disease, illness or injury; any physiologic, medical conditions or disorder (e.g., orthopaedic; visual, speech or hearing impairments; cerebral palsy; epilepsy; muscular dystrophy; multiple sclerosis; cancer; coronary artery disease; diabetes; mental retardation; emotional or mental illness; specific learning disabilities; HIV disease; TB; drug addiction; alcoholism). A biological or psychological state which is within the range of normal human variation is not a medical condition.

Medical condition is a phrase used in documents for physicians applying to licensing agencies (e.g., state medical boards, malpractice insurance carriers, third-party payers, etc.), which is used to determine a physician’s physical “suitability” to practise medicine.A disease, illness, or injury Medical practice Any condition–eg, physiologic, mental, or psychologic conditions or disorders–eg, orthopedic, visual, speech, or hearing impairments, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, CA, CAD, DM, mental retardation, emotional or mental illness, specific learning disabilities, HIV disease, TB, drug addiction, alcoholismPeople can’t wake me up- is it a medical condition?

A third admitted to rarely or never engaging in self-examination

Women who are less happy with the appearance of their breasts are less likely to check for signs of cancer, new research finds.Find the more Health News from SHINE.

The findings also show that women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts are more likely to delay seeing their doctor if they do detect a change, than those who feel confident about their bodies.

Published in the journal Body Image, the study of 384 British women revealed that the majority of participants were unhappy with the appearance of their breasts in some way.While 31 per cent wanted smaller breasts, 44 per cent wanted larger breasts and a third of women (33 per cent) admitted they rarely or never engage in breast self-examination.

Worryingly, if they were to detect a change, one in 10 (8 per cent) admitted they would either delay seeing a doctor for as long as possible, or avoid it completely (2 per cent).

“Our findings suggest that greater breast size dissatisfaction is significantly associated with less frequent breast self-examination, lower confidence in detecting breast change, and greater delay in seeing a doctor following breast change,” said study author, Professor Viren Swami of Anglia Ruskin University.For women who are dissatisfied with their breast size, having to inspect their breasts may be experienced as a threat to their body image and so they may engage in avoidance behaviours.

“Breast size dissatisfaction may also activate negative self-conscious emotions, such as shame and embarrassment, that result in avoiding breast self-examination.”Instead, Prof Swami says that promoting greater breast size satisfaction and breast awareness could help women view their breasts in more functional terms – such as their ability to produce milk for babies – rather than purely aesthetic terms, and in turn empower women to regularly self-check.

“It is also important for healthcare practitioners to be mindful of the impact that dissatisfaction with one’s breasts may have on self-examination behaviours and outcomes,” said Prof Swami.

Taste of Shanghai

Sydney may already have a Chinatown close to the city but Ashfield is what I consider to be Little Shanghai or taste of shanghai. This is a suburb where, should you have a craving for dumplings that are a little different from your Cantonese Yum Cha variety, there is a stretch of road studded thickly with restaurants offering Shanghai cuisine and dumplings. This is where you can eat until you’re stuffed for under $20 a head (or even $15). Something of a minor miracle in Sydney.And if you’re a regular reader, you’ll probably have suspected my ulterior motives for going here. That is, to try more Xiao Long Bao, those famous Shanghai soup dumplings. We’re taking M and her sons S and In along for the ride as they’re all dumpling fans. This Saturday night we’re meeting early, at 6.30pm outside Ashfield Mall along with some unusual looking types, and what do you know but we’re greeted with a queue outside of ticket bearing patrons. It’s like being transported to a Yum Cha restaurant at 1pm.

The girl with the tickets lets us know that it will be a 15 minute wait and we stand outside pondering the other numerous Shanghai eateries along the road, many with only 1 or 2 customers inside them. If there’s one thing about Chinese restaurants, it’s that if there’s a queue, it’s usually a good sign.Within about 10 minutes, our table is free, and it’s a good thing as S is hungry (he is a growing boy after all). We order straight away as they’ve given us a copy of the menu to look at while waiting. We’ve chosen a selection of dumplings as well as one of their chef’s specials and a tofu dish.
Everything comes out quickly and our small table can barely fit it all so we do a lot of quick eating and juggling. The first thing we try is the Spring rolls, which In had ordered as they’re his favourite. They’re not bad, nice and fresh and very hot although Spring Rolls aren’t usually my item of choice.The next item is one that we warn the boys will need a bit of patience and restraint. If they thought the Spring Rolls were hot, they might get a shock when biting into the hot soupy Xiao Long Baos. We let them cool for a while and then instruct the boys on how to eat them. After telling them to “Put the entire thing in your mouth” In chomps down halfway on his sending an explosion of soup forth across the table and dribbling down in front of him, much to his utter delight as only an 8 year old can see it. The other tables around us chuckle at the sight and M clucks “What part of ‘put the entire thing in your mouth’ didn’t you get?” while mopping him up.

The Best TV Shows On Netflix Right Now

There are plenty of good TV series on Netflix Instant (and you can find more with these secret codes). If you’re trying to figure out what to watch next, here’s a great place to start with a look at 50 of the best shows on Netflix right now, ranked (including some of the best Netflix original series).
You can also find recent changes, including new seasons and removed shows, at the bottom of this list.Atypical is the kind of single-camera sitcom that would feel right at home among ABC’s family sitcoms like Speechless, Black-ish, Fresh off the Boat and The Goldbergs (in fact, creator Robia Rashid previously worked as a producer on The Goldbergs). It’s a charming coming-of-age show about Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist), an 18-year-old from Connecticut with high-functioning autism.
He’s arrived at an age when he’s decided that he’d like to date and have sex. The first season — a batch eight half-hour episodes — covers his awkward encounters with women, his inappropriate crush on his therapist, and his relationship with the teenage girl he eventually asks to prom. It also deals with the challenges of his parents. His father (Michael Rapaport) is trying to figure out how to truly connect with his son for the first time while his mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) aims to find her own identity apart from being the mother of an autistic child. It’s the older sister (Brigette Lundy-Paine) who is the real stand-out of Atypical. Like the big sister in the film and book series, Wonder, she aims to both support her brother while also carving out a life of her own separate from Sam. It’s not a groundbreaking series, and it has been criticized for its stereotypical depiction of autism, but it nevertheless funny, heartwarming, and very sweet.In theory, American Vandal sounds silly and sophomoric, and it is, but it’s also a genuinely brilliant, incredibly clever, smartly written satire of true-crime documentaries.
It plays just like any other true crime docuseries — interviews, investigations, multiple suspects, and numerous conspiracy theories — only the crime here is not a murder. It’s a high-school student who has been accused by the school board of spray painting dicks on 27 cars, a crime that threatens his ability to graduate. It’s a brilliant whodunnit that just happens to also be the best parody of 2017. Before Walter White, there was Nancy Botwin, a suburban housewife turned pot dealer to take care of her kids after her husband dies.
Weeds is a light comedy that grows progressively darker over the course of the series as the stakes are raised, but the show works best in its early seasons when it’s just a grieving mom (Mary Louise Parker) out of her depth trying to sell dime bags in a conservative suburban community. It’s funny, offbeat, and irreverent, and populated with an amazingly funny supporting cast (Justin Kirk, Kevin Nealon, Elizabeth Perkins, Romany Malco). Weeds, however, loses its allure in later seasons as Nancy Botwin works herself up the chain from small-time pot dealer to distribute to international drug kingpin and forgets about why she got into the drug business in the first place: To provide for her kids.

The Best Movies of 2017

The end of the year is here, meaning it’s now time to definitively celebrate the finest movies that made their way to the multiplex and the art house. Over the past twelve months, moviegoers have been gifted with a bounty of great blockbusters, indies and documentaries, proving that filmmakers are continuing to find new ways—both big and small—to entertain, excite, and enlighten. No matter their budgets, scale, or subject matter, each of our selections had something to offer the adventurous cinephile, be it shining a light on today’s hot-button issues, reinvigorating traditional genres, or illuminating facets of the infinitely complex human condition. Find the latest movies, photos, videos and featured stories on Shine News. SHINE provides trusted national and world news as well as local and regional perspectives.

They are, in short, our picks for the best films of 2017.La La Land’s award-season triumphs may have heralded the return of the Hollywood musical, but in terms of ingenuity, flair and sheer eye-popping weirdness, it can’t hold a candle to The Lure. Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska’s wackadoo import is a familiar drama about a young couple torn between individual dreams and professional desires, the twist being that these protagonists (Marta Mazurek and Michalina Olszanska) are mermaid cannibals sashaying through the seedy cabaret underbelly of 1980s Warsaw. Like the dreamy love child of Amèlie’s Jean-Pierre Jeunet and The Fly’s David Cronenberg—except with quite a bit more singing and dancing from its fantastical femme fatales—Smoczynska’s knockout debut charts its aquatic fairy tale creatures as they make a name for themselves as a pop duo known as “The Lure,” along the way falling in love and chomping on unsuspecting (male and female) victims. A bisexual Little Mermaid-by-way-of-vampire horrorshow scored to original New Wave-y tunes, it really is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Rent/buy on Amazon and iTunes.
A journey into the deep, dark regions of the Amazonian wild, Leonor Caraballo and Matteo Norzi’s Icaros: A Vision follows an American beset by a cancer to the Peruvian jungle in search of ayahuasca—a psychedelic plant that, along with medicinal chants known as “icaros,” is used by locals to remedy mind, body, and spirit. In the care of Shipibo shamans, she and other patients venture freely between lucid and hallucinatory states, and so too does the film, which proceeds in an oblique, waking-dream fashion. Shot on location at a community retreat (and, briefly, at a hotel that was featured in Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo), this unique effort is an alternately optimistic and despairing look at the ongoing clash of global cultures. And it’s one bolstered by its constant synthesis of disparate forces—man and nature, the modern and the ancient, the West and the East, the physical and the ethereal, and, ultimately, the real and unreal.

Five myths about teaching in international schools

More teachers left the country last year to teach in international schools than there were students completing PGCE courses. With increased accountability and pressure in schools, is it a surprise that so many staff are looking for an escape? In 2012 I packed my life into several suitcases and uprooted my family to a tiny tropical island community in the Seychelles to be headteacher of an international school.

I suppose it wouldn’t surprise people if I were to say that I’d been driven abroad by the constant meddling of politicians, the exams fiasco, or Ofsted. In reality, however, ever since entering teaching, one of my ambitions has been to experience international education. International schools have a unique ethos and approach. They are rich in diversity and I wanted to experience the celebration of different cultures in an environment where the values of global citizenship are promoted and developed in young people.

After returning to Britain, I’ve realised there are lots of misconceptions about what it’s like to teach in an international school. Here are the most common beliefs about teaching abroad – and my verdict on them. Not true – work is work, regardless of where you are. Having said this, I did find that my work-life balance was far healthier abroad. If you work in a British international school you will follow the English national curriculum, but you will be free from bureaucracy. You are not confined to certain systems and procedures, for example, completing unnecessary evidence for Ofsted, which can inhibit a teacher’s creativity and increase their workload. Instead, I had more time and energy to be a real dad to my son.

A Tesol (Teachers of English to speakers of other languages) qualification isn’t necessary for most jobs. As a qualified teacher from the UK, you will be attractive to most international schools so it is unlikely they will demand extra qualifications. Plus, if you are working in a British international school then the spoken and written language will be English. That said, working with staff, students and parents from a different background can be challenging, especially if there is a language barrier. It is important to learn about the different cultures or communities you will be working with and be sensitive to them.

This will take time to understand, so make sure you are open and ask other teachers or the school’s management team for support – some schools provide a handbook to help your transition.In any school, in any context, there will be some demanding parents. But it is sometimes true that if parents are paying, the dynamics can change. Even in UK, the fact that state schools are financed by taxpayers can mean that everyone feels they have a say on how children should be taught. This goes up a notch when the schools’ expensive fees come directly out of parents’ salaries. As an effective school you need to engage with parents and have a close working relationship, but there were times when I had to remind parents that I, as the headteacher, and the governing body, made the key decisions.
