I think that this is what will happen, I think it will be announced in the nearest future – possibly tomorrow,” the source said.Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, also chairman of VEB, is likely to discuss the sale of the 3.6 per cent stake – valued at $4.5bn (£2.85bn) at current market prices — with German chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin today.“The discussions are going in such a way that we will take this stake,” the source said.A Russian newspaper said VEB would likely pay a premium for the Gazprom stake over the current market price, to support the company’s market value.

Starting XV:15 David Harvey, 14 Sam Wara, 13 Will Tupou, 12 Rory Sidey, 11 Napolioni Nalaga, 10 Ben Seymour, 9 Brett Sheehan, 1 Pek Cowan, 2 Nathan Charles, 3 Salesi Ma’afu, 4 Toby Lynn, 5 Nathan Sharpe, 6 Matt Hodgson, 7 David Pocock, 8 Ben McCalmanReplacements:16 Salesi Manu, 17 Elvis Taione, 18 Phoenix Battye, 19 Lachlan McCaffrey, 20 Josh Holmes, 21 Winston Stanley, 22 Alfie Mafi “It’s great to include Will in the side after he’s had a long layoff with injury and he’s been playing some great rugby at club level and we’ve brought Rory in off the bench so we’ll be expecting a big impact from those two in getting some good forward play,” Blake said.The back row has seen a reshuffle with Ben McCalman making his return to the No.8 jersey after recovering from an arm injury aggravated during the game against the Stormers. Two time club fairest and best player Matt Hodgson has slotted back into the blindside flanker role with Richard Brown rested to recover from a knock to the knee sustained in the game against the Sharks.Nick Cummins will also miss this week’s game with a quadriceps strain but Blake expects both to be available for selection next week.The last time these sides met the Rebels made an explosive start and despite an impressive comeback from the Western Force they held on for a one point victory. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Nick Cummins, scored at their last meeting, is out after straining his quadAFTER KEEPING an unchanged squad for the past two rounds, the Western Force coaching team have made six changes for their Round 13 clash against the Rebels on Sunday.The backline has seen a significant reshuffle with Ben Seymour moving into the playmaker role for his second start in the run on side this season while David Harvey moves to fullback.Skills and Defence Coach Phil Blake said the disappointing results in South Africa encouraged them to go with the combination to add some thrust and good forward momentum that was lacking in previous games.“We’ve moved Dave (Harvey) into fullback because he’s been exposed most of the year anyhow and we feel as if he can give us a bit more stability in the back there with his kicking game,” said Blake. “Seymour’s core skills are really suited to the way we want to play and we feel as if it’s right to give him a shot at 10 to build his experience in the role.”After an extended period on the sidelines with injury Will Tupou is fully fit and returns to the side following standout performances for Pindan Premier Grade side Wanneroo and will pair up with Rory Sidey in the centres.

— EK Rugby Analysis (@ek_rugby) February 8, 2021How to practise“In practice I’ll drop in the spiral alongside other kicks. I don’t do it that often, maybe four or five times a session, but I know my spiral is rolling if I can pull it off during those random times.“We try to recreate the pressure of a game in training by kicking at the end of the session when we’re tired and out of breath. Then the coaches will give us a time limit or number of steps that we have to get our kick-off in. Callum Sheedy is really good at that.”Related: Callum Sheedy and Ioan Lloyd in conversationWhen to use it“During the week we’ll decide on our exit strategies. Usually in our 22 we want to kick the ball long using the spiral but everyone will scan to see if there is an option to run instead.“If we’ve kicked long a few times, they might have the wings covered; that would open up the middle of the field for us.” How to spiral kick – Top tips from Ioan LloydThe spiral kick is having something of a resurgence in rugby right now. Here Bristol Bears and Wales back Ioan Lloyd offers his advice on how to master the skill…Why spiral kick“I try to use the spiral kick because when you connect properly it goes further. You get that bit of a glide with a spiral kick that carries it on. If we were in our 22 and I’m trying to kick it as high and as far down the pitch as possible, ideally into touch in their 22, that would be very hard to do with a normal kick.”Where to position hands and feet“Sean Marsden (skills coach) and Mark Tainton (CEO and ex-fly-half) both talk about holding the ball at 11 and five. For a right-footed kicker, one end of the ball would be pointing at 11 o’clock and one end at five o’clock.“I want to keep my plant foot solid and I try to get my hands as far out in front of me as I can, so I can step into the kick. I place the ball just outside my right leg so I can get a swing into the kick.” Spiral it like StuartHere’s a new video breaking down the technique behind Stuart Hogg’s brilliant spiral kick for the @Scotlandteam against England last Saturday.

Set in the remote, harsh high desert of Idaho, Outpost is an artist’s live/work studio and sculpture garden. The building’s compactness restricts site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. This is a windy place, and the enclosed “paradise garden,” is separated from the wild landscape by thick masonry walls. The footprint of the house is the limit of intrusion into the land—a simple, clearly defined space. This structure exemplifies Kundig’s belief that the architect’s job is to create an experience of place.Save this picture!© Tim BiesOutpost’s compactness limits site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. The architects chose a readily available construction material—concrete block—for the primary structure; commercial builders were able to quickly and cheaply assemble the building. Interior materials are left largely unfinished.Save this picture!© Tim BiesKundig describes the concept as a Tootsie Roll Pop: hard on the outside and soft on the inside. The house is designed around one open, multifunctional room overlooked by a mezzanine bedroom, with separate studio/office and utility spaces on a lower entry level. Elevated above the ground (snowpack in winter), the main living levels have 360-degree views of the surrounding high desert and mountains.Save this picture!© Tim BiesInterior finishes include unfinished recycled fir floors, walls, and cabinets; plaster made from natural clays and pigments; and Carrara marble kitchen counters. Other materials used in the structure, including the concrete block, car decking (structural tongue-and-groove material), and plywood, require little or no maintenance and are capable of withstanding the extreme weather that characterizes the desert’s four seasons.Save this picture!SectionIn a windy environment, the enclosed garden provides protection to develop a culture space.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Azerbaijani government to release Zaur Gambarov, a journalist who has been jailed on a trumped-up charge of “disturbing public order” in connection with incident last year in which he was attacked and beaten by an official and his driver. News In the course of the argument, the social security department’s deputy director, Ibrahim Alasgarov, and his driver hit Gambarov and threatened to bring a legal action against him in order to get him imprisoned. The reporter and his website complained to the labour ministry about the attack, and the police said they would investigate. “This cynical reversal of the situation has yet again illustrated the impunity enjoyed by those responsible for violence against journalists in Azerbaijan,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Zaur Gambarov has not been jailed for assaulting anyone. He has been jailed for journalism that was critical and revealing about the social and economic problems in the Gadabay region. We firmly condemn this unjustified decision in a trumped-up case, and we call for his immediate release.” June 4, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts June 8, 2021 Find out more A reporter for the Anews.az website, Gambarov was sentenced to three and a half years in prison on 28 February over an altercation at the local branch of the social security department in the western city of Gadabay when he went there on 4 May 2020 to investigate a complaint.

If the altercation was filmed by the building’s video cameras, the court refused to show the videos and no fingerprints were taken from the chair. April 9, 2021 Find out more Gambarov says their attack was a direct result of a video published two days earlier in which he referred to the mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic in the region and described the system of corruption within the local branch of the social security department. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan The authorities often fabricate cases against independent journalists. The recent victims include Polad Aslanov, the editor of the Xeberman and Press Az news websites, who was sentenced last November to 16 years in prison on a trumped-up charge of high treason.
