Barracuda looks to Costa to fuel sales

first_img BARRACUDA is to launch Costa coffee at its pub estate – and will now open at 9am for breakfast.Costa coffee is expected to be available in 100 of its 217 pubs by Christmas with the rest launching in 2011.Barracuda, which also has the Smith & Jones brand, is pursuing a more food-focused policy at its pubs, which will see 22 non-core pubs sold off.The pubs will have a new breakfast menu to coincide with the availability of Costa coffee with executives hope that the premises can attract traditional coffee shop customers. A pilot at 12 pubs was a success with shoppers sitting down to eat with urban workers buying takeaway breakfasts. Chief executive Mark McQuater said: “We are confident that Costa will be positively received by our customers, driving a substantial increase in coffee sales and further growing all-day trade in our pubs, building on our recent success in this area to date. “We remain committed to continuing to broaden our customer offer and keeping Barracuda pubs at the forefront of industry trends.” Barracuda is spending £16m refurbishing and rebranding 60 of its 220 pubs, in a major shake-up of the business.Last week it re-opened the Alchemist, in Houndsditch following a £300,000 investment.Barracuda’s rivals, including Mitchells & Butlers, much of the focus has been on the company’s food, in an attempt to widen the pubs’ appeal to attract more women and families.JD Wetherspoon – which serves Lavazza coffee – sells 25m cups a year. It has started opening all its pubs at 7am, for “early-bird” breakfasts.

Analysis: Clifford, Kvesic, Robshaw and Wallace state England cases

first_img Tearaway: Jack Clifford breaks at Twickenham as Matt Kvesic tries to hunt him down Chris Robshaw, Matt Kvesic, Jack Clifford and Luke Wallace featured in a frenetic 39-39 draw between Harlequins and Gloucester on Sunday, each offering a glimpse into their Test credentials. Diving off his feet, Kvesic threatens the ball. Though illegal, this sucks Brown and Care into the breakdown:Kvesic then rolls over the ruck. While holding his hands out, protesting innocence and pretending to be doing his best to get out of the way, he knows this is adding to the chaos and making it more difficult for Harlequins to maintain continuity:Sure enough, Dave Ward steps in at scrum-half and rushes a pass. As the ball breaks loose, Henry Trinder bounds away to score:All in all, Kvesic was excellent. Equally though, Robshaw appeared intent on retaining a spot in England’s side.Chris RobshawStuart Lancaster often championed Robshaw’s insatiable work ethic and this match, his last of an eventful 2015, provided more evidence of such hunger. There are better scavengers, but few can match him for industry. Wearing six, Robshaw filled his afternoon with subtle but clever contributions.Early on, with Gloucester looking to bully Harlequins via their driving lineout, there was this example. First, the Cherry and Whites establish their maul shape:Gloucester truck over the 22 ominously and look to have a big chance as the maul splinters. A section of their forwards wheels off to the right and there is a gap to attack.However, Robshaw is alert. He arcs back around……and tackles Kvesic just as he burrows ahead:Follow Robshaw through the clip as a whole:Jones will doubtlessly want his pack to be adept handlers. Robshaw is a very good passer and offers a great deal in that regard.Here though, as Care snipes from the base of a ruck, some different attacking instincts are on display. Watch how Robshaw steps in at scrum-half:Shrugging off a fringe defender, he makes five metres on a punchy carry and narrows the Harlequins’ tack. A handful of phases later, Care barged over the line.Next, we look at Robshaw’s breakdown skills – beginning from this scrum:The Harlequins back row outworks that of Gloucester. Robshaw, bound to the blindside flank of the set piece, does not figure for two phases. First, Charlie Sharples takes it up:Clifford challenges, but drops to the floor under pressure from Kvesic:Gloucester come around the corner and are once more stopped in their tracks. This time, Easter competes:Wales international Ross Moriarty deals with the threat, which is when we see Robshaw come into view:He has crossed almost the full width of the field and gets his reward when Gloucester run out of support. Sione Kalamafoni is met by Evans and Lowe before Robshaw clasps on:His strength and technique over the ball has been improving for a few seasons now, and he was never going to be shifted by Cook:Lastly, we come to piece of play that epitomises Robshaw. With the score at 39-39 in the dying seconds of a high-tempo, hugely energy-sapping tie, this happened:Fittingly, Robshaw’s role is not immediately obvious. But it is pivotal to creating one final chance for Harlequins to win the game.As Evans strikes the ball over Sharples and towards the corner flag, Robshaw is a long way away from the play – and in an offside position:Even so, he charges off in pursuit of the ball:While Sharples ambles back, Robshaw arrives in time to cut off a quick lineout. This is significant because Gloucester hooker Richard Hibbard had been yellow-carded minutes previously:Gloucester needed to send on Darren Dawidiuk to feed one lineout after 78 minutes on the touchline as an unused replacement:Harlequins pressurised the throw and stole it:They then set up an attack from which Evans saw a drop-goal sail agonisingly wide. Harlequins had to settle for a draw, but without Robshaw’s awareness and graft to stop the quick throw and force Gloucester to introduce a specialist hooker, they may never have seen another opportunity.Luke WallaceIn just 20 minutes from the bench, Wallace had time to enhance his reputation by demonstrating canny breakdown skills to force this penalty – treading the line between ruck and tackle as Kvesic had done:The ball in now in the court of Jones and new forwards coach Steve Borthwick. Tom Wood, Dave Ewers, James Haskell, Maro Itoje, Will Fraser and Teimana Harrison – not to mention O’Connor – will also push hard for Six Nations involvement in the back row.In this match, despite conceding two rather soft penalties, Kvesic stood out. And England need a breakdown assassin capable of disrupting and derailing attacks consistently.Robshaw shipped one needless infringement but underlined his lineout prowess and non-stop graft. Some may knock his pace, but the contributions keep coming right until the final whistle. Ten 10 tries and 78 points punctuated a harum-scarum encounter at Twickenham on Sunday, but Eddie Jones will have remained rather detached from the excitement.Rather than revelling in a truly intoxicating game between Harlequins and Gloucester, one of his main priorities was surely monitoring a quartet aiming to wear six or seven for England during the upcoming Six Nations.Here is a run-down of how those four flankers fared.Jack CliffordBack in 2013, Clifford captained England Under 20 to their maiden Junior World Championship triumph. Bristling with fast-twitch athleticism, he was phenomenal from No 8. During the 33-21 semi-final defeat of New Zealand, Clifford overshadowed the awesome Ardie Savea.A short spell under Simon Amor in the England Sevens set-up two seasons ago showcased his raw pace and, selected at openside last weekend, Clifford brought muscle to the tight exchanges. However, his carrying will have really pleased Jones. The 22 year-old shrugged off five would-be tacklers in four runs. An eye-catching break was the highlight:This comes a couple of phases after Harlequins secure a Gloucester restart. Having dragged Gloucester close to the right touchline, they organise their phase-play structure and head back to the left.Nick Easter receives a pass from Nick Evans and in turn finds George Lowe in a secondary wave. Before that happens though, look at Clifford. His head is up, identifying two tight-five forwards in the defensive line:Cutting back against the Gloucester drift, he speeds through Thrush’s challenge and into the open:It is an explosive effort, but the cool decision-making and contact skills that come next are even better. Picking up as he steps past a covering opponent, we can appreciate how Clifford does his utmost to ensure that possession is recycled:First, he pumps his legs through the tackle of Billy Twelvetrees. This allows Clifford to stay on his feet for as long as possible, thus giving his support crucial milliseconds to catch up as the dangerous Matt Kvesic circles:Next, when he is finally brought down, Clifford rolls along the floor. The ball becomes a moving target for Kvesic, who scrambles to latch on. He misses at the first attempt……and only grabs hold as Chris Robshaw (demonstrating the tirelessness that we will expand on later) and Lowe arrive……to execute the clear-out:A cute Danny Care grubber-kick bought Harlequins to within five metres of the Gloucester line and Marland Yarde scored soon afterwards.The try was forged directly from Clifford’s searing run, but Gloucester’s number seven weighed in with a couple of pivotal interventions as well.Matt KvesicAnother age-group skipper, Kvesic made his Test debut for England in June 2013. Two all-action displays in Argentina seem like ancient history now. That said, the ex-Worcester man chose a perfect stage to reinforce his stature as one of the very best breakdown operators in the Aviva Premiership.This exhibition comes from a slick Harlequins lineout. Robshaw takes at the tail and Evans can get his backline going:Kvesic bides his time as the ball is shipped wide. He does not bite onto decoy runners, instead tracking across from this initial position:Tim Visser eventually receives the ball following a nice flick-pass from Mike Brown:From here, it is all about Kvesic. He makes a robust tackle on Visser, who is supported by Clifford:Clifford is over the ball quickly:But because Clifford is not bound to a Gloucester player, no ruck has been formed. As the laws of rugby union state, a ruck requires one protagonist from either team:Around 15 minutes earlier, James Horwill had been penalised for this:The key difference is that Horwill stoops to pick up the ball after a ruck has been formed by the contest between Joe Marler and two Gloucester players. In the case of Kvesic’s steal, Kvesic is the only Gloucester player near to the tackle area.As such, despite the protestations of Care, Kvesic is not restricted by an offside line. Rather than circling around the back foot, he can simply stand up and compete for the ball (circled in white):Referee Wayne Barnes, who has an excellent view, signals that Kvesic is the first Gloucester player at the breakdown and therefore entirely legal. Amid the attentions of Brown, he shovels the ball back towards his teammates:Twelvetrees could collect and put away James Hook for a try:By way of an explanation to Harlequins, Barnes said that Kvesic’s turnover “looked ugly, but was completely correct.” Certainly, this sort of pilfer is rather rare in northern hemisphere rugby:Brendon O’Connor, Leicester Tigers’ new signing from the Blues who qualifies to represent England, regularly challenges referees’ interpretation of the ruck laws. Jones will be delighted to see another Premiership openside doing the same – even if this sort of turnover is to be illegal under new laws to trialled in New Zealand‘s National Provincial Championship next year.Kvesic thwarted Harlequins on numerous occasions. Here, he effectively deadlifts Evans to win a penalty for holding on:As well as opportunism and knowledge of the laws, old-fashioned hard work was another pillar of Kvesic’s performance. Through bloody-minded willingness to scramble back, he helped manufacture Gloucester’s third try. Initially, he shackles Care:As this screenshot shows, Kvesic drags the scrum-half back at full stretch:Seconds later, Lowe continued a fractured, frenetic passage by bursting through. Track Kvesic:He curves around as full-back Rob Cook fells Lowe:center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Clifford boasts raw talent and could thrive at international level.

Fans return to Harlequins as mascots watch from home

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A splash of colour: Quins will make do without mascots this week (Getty Images) Can’t get to the shops? You can download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet or subscribe to the print edition to get the magazine delivered to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They will mingle, they will cajole, trying to drag fans to stalls and attractions, every so often tagging out to get a breather. They are on the pitch before the game and nip in and out, imploring roars when they can. They hope they have a keen sense of the mood of a crowd, and when something needs to be done – anything – they can pull out a drum or play up their character.It is an unusual responsibility, that of the mascot. It’s live action role play meets hype man for a stadium gig. So how do you get into it?“My background’s in theatre and acting but I’m also a massive sports fan, and of rugby,” Brown begins of his way in. “I was sort of between jobs and saw an advert on Quins’ website saying they were looking for mascots. I applied and was called in for an interview.“I was taken up to one of the boxes at the Stoop and I’d taken in these various characters. I was asked to prepare sort of a little gesture for both Harley and Charlie (two of the bears) and do a bit of a biography about what I thought they were like. And then I had to do a couple of minutes of a piece that I prepared, whether it was a talent or something like that.“With that I did this sort of take on the haka, but I’d set it to the song the Mighty Quinn. Now, I had expected the suit to come out and they said, ‘Oh, actually, we’re a bit cramped for space. Can you just do it here without the suit?’ So there I was, in an executive box at Quins, just doing this dance for two people. And it obviously worked!”Related: What would England’s North v South teams be?It was more direct for Sawbridge, who was in college and looking for a peripheral way into part-time work in sport in 2018. With supporting the women’s game a key point for the side, it all clicked into place.Brown details the incredible buzz you can get after a vital win, out there with the players; juxtaposing that with the instants after the game when you peel off the costume and confidently head out towards the crowd who simply have no idea who you are. But for him, the special moments are when it’s deep into the game and there’s a scrum on the 5m line and you get a chant going. Whipping up a once-silent crowd feels special.Fan favourite: Chris Robshaw with Quins supporters, 2019 (Getty Images)Sawbridge adds of theie role: “For the kids it’s the closest they might get to being in contact with a member of the team. Lots of kids desire to get a high-five off Chris Robshaw or meet Danny Care, but it’s not always possible. However, when they meet Harley, Charlie and Emily it’s almost like that step closer to actually get in a picture with a member of the team.“It’s really so nice when you make a kid’s day, or when you get pictures of people and they’re all smiles. That is my sign of a good day, when you made so many people smile, even if it’s not the best circumstances with the game. Yeah, just keeping that positive energy.”Having exclusively Quins-minded fans back may tip the scales against Bath. The bears are certainly hopeful. You have to take your furry head off to them, keeping the energy up from afar.center_img BIG MATCH nerves are not unusual. When Saracens or Exeter come to town, this bunch from Harlequins are used to taking the pitch as flames lick the sky and music blares. They normally have their game faces on… And their paws and their furry legs.This Saturday will be a happy day, but an admittedly odd one for the Harlequins mascots.The Stoop becomes the first ground in the Gallagher Premiership to welcome fans back from Covid exile, as part of a government pilot scheme. Up to 3,500 Quins season ticket members will be allowed in for the match against Bath. It’s a step back towards normality – a very welcome one – and while they are buzzing to see the faithful return in some part, Quins’ sleuth of bears cannot help but daydream about their own return.“The bears will be watching on the sofa with a pint!” says Alistair Brown with a sly smile. The actor, who also does research for quiz shows, first wore the costume of Harley Bear in 2016.“I’ve followed the rugby on TV since it’s been back on. Obviously they’re elite athletes, players and professionals but apart from a couple of games, there hasn’t been that sort of ebb and flow – when a team has got ahead, the others may find it difficult to come back. To bring crowds back in you get the joy of being (part of a) crowd, to be closer to people that are supporting the same team or there’s a lovely friendly rivalry and not support their team.Related: Plans for up to 20,000 fans at England v Barbarians“All we do is hopefully add to that experience of the day. I think everyone’s so ready for sports and being in stadiums and I think that (what we have this weekend) probably will be enough, certainly initially.”Recent sight: Marcus Smith in an empty stadium (Getty Images)Here jumps in Emily Sawbridge – possibly better known to supporters as Emily Bear. A Quins fan since she was nine, she is as excited as anyone to see fans coming back and understands the reasons why the mascots cannot be there, interacting with supporters, yet. But understandably, she is keen to return to the Stoop too.“We’re gonna miss it, not being there,” personal trainer Sawbridge begins. “I definitely have missed it. And as life goes on you still want to keep your schedule open, to carry on doing this role because it is just so much fun – it’s going to be difficult watching it and not seeing us there. People might not know, if people are expecting to see us. Unfortunately, it’s just not time for that.“But I really hope soon that we can go back, even if we can’t be in direct contact, like not high-fiving (fans). It’d still be great just to have the bears there because it shows the support and just represents the club really.”Talking to the pair, you realise how full-on a day in furs can be.Beginning hours before the gates open, they are briefed on what the plan is for the day, which special events are on, what key timings will be. The talent put their heads together to discuss a rough plan. Then 20 minutes before the entrances are flung open, they can be seen hopping around with one leg in, asking for help with a zip, fumbling paws.Life in the costume can be cumbersome. It’s hot. No one can hear you. So your actions have to be deliberate.Bear essentials: Young fans with Emily and Harley (Getty Images)At the very start of her life as a bear, Sawbridge was pulled aside by her manager to be told that placing a coquettish hand on the hip while standing side-on, tilting and flicking the head, was not really in keeping with the character Quins wanted to put out. Their Emily is powerful, she was told, a no-nonsense member of the team. It’s a landmark return for spectators as optimistic mascots look on from afar… For nowlast_img read more

Social Housing in Elmas / 2+1 officina architettura

first_img Italy Project description2+1 officina architettura has recently completed a housing project in Elmas, a small town in the south of Sardinia. The office, which finds its field of action between artistic design and architecture, seeks for experimentation within contemporary design thinking, ‘aiming for the development of contemporary art and architecture and directing their own intellectual, professional and human resources for the improvement of society and ethics’. Amid a building context fully regulated to prevent and constrain rather than experiment with new architectural solutions, 2+1 has demonstrated how to make the best of it, turning those constrictions upside down.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviStrictly aligned along the street, the new housing structure stands out from the surroundings with its white colour, which serves as a flat canvas for the mustard-yellow composition of the shutters. These windows, in two different sizes, create a vibrant and binomial play of open/closed. Entrance to the different housing units is achieved through the inner courtyard. Here the secondary, southeast facade results in more articulation in terms of volume, highlighting a continuous covered balcony that connects the mesh-covered exterior staircase with the different units. Both the facade’s disposition of openings and its colour palette recall the street appearance.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviSome elements, such as the balcony cantilevering 1,5 meters from the vertical plane of the facade, or the exterior staircases, find an alternative shape in order to fulfil the programme requirements. The expertise of the designers makes it possible to undress the redundant layers, getting the most out of the essence and core values of those elements. With this newfangled and engaging design, 2+1 definitely challenges a building practice characterized by a market rule approach.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pierluigi Dessì / ConfinivisiviSustainabilityThe north-south orientation of the two facades has an effect on the disposition of inside spaces, relative to the sleeping areas placed at north and living areas paced at south. The summer solar radiation on housing units is controlled through a walkway balcony / brise soleil screen, which depth is evaluated in order to respond in a best way to the different variation of solar radiation, both in summer and winter. On the north side, full shutter panels work as further protection by cold north winds.Save this picture!Street FacadeEconomyThe optimization of economic resources is reached through a synthesis of the building geometry, a wise selection of construction material, and technologies readily available in the territory. The use of material such as Abet laminate Meg permit high performance of weathering resistance with a reduction in construction costs.Save this picture!Floor PlanSociabilityThe entrance to each housing unit is granted by an inside court, served by an external stair and walkway balconies.
