Duncan Bell: Things are looking up

first_imgBATH, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 28: Duncan Bell on November 28, 2012 in Bath, England. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) On the couch: the ex-Bath props settle down to discuss the strains and stresses of professional rugbyIN OUR February issue Duncan Bell opened up to Rugby World with his long time friend, ex-teammate and member of the front row union, David Flatman, about the pressures of professional rugby and why the onus is on friends and family as much as those suffering mental health problems to start talking. If you missed it, you can download the feature here, as it appeared in our magazine. Or read below.Duncan Bell and David Flatman are two of rugby’s larger-than-life characters. With over 400 first-class games between them and a bundle of England caps, they are the personification of the game’s ‘good eggs’.A perfect example of this came en route to the majestic setting of Farleigh House, the stately home-cum-training centre for their beloved Bath. Boarding the train, I saw an email from Bell: Sorry, can’t make it. With my mind scrambling for a Plan B, a minute later, Bell followed up with: Only joking mate, see you in a few hours. That set the tone for an interview where laughs were as plentiful as soul-searching. On hearing the tale, Flatman smirked and said his only regret was it hadn’t been him with the wind-up.Sympathetic ear: John Kirwan is an inspiration to Bell In rugby culture this behaviour is standard, with the onus on looking for a gag or some banter. Indeed, rugby’s reputation is of alpha males who’ve eaten their three Shredded Wheat before taking to the field to physically impose themselves on similarly oversized men. Yet, Bell, the 19st, 6ft 1in ex-England prop, doesn’t conform to the stereotype.Last April, the 38-year-old announced his retirement. In doing so, he disclosed that he’d been suffering from depression, on and off, for a decade. In a searingly honest interview, he admitted reaching a nadir, but wanted to speak out to help other sportsmen in his chosen sport who were suffering in silence.For Bell, doing the ‘coming out’ interview hadn’t been in the original plan. “I was going to do a bog-standard retirement piece but I’d just confided to Flats about my depression and anxiety, and his response was that I could help so many people. My reaction was, ‘No way, not in a million years’. However, Flats is a wise man, with a way with words, so he changed my mind.“Coincidentally, at the same time, an old-mate, Richard Bryan, an RPA (Rugby Players’ Association) rep, mentioned the LPP programme, a consultation service for players with problems, like gambling or substance abuse. It’s a confidential service, so I opened up to him and said I’d like to get involved. We agreed to put some video footage together to show to players every season as part of their programme.”For Bell, such an admission was more nerve-racking than running out in front of 80,000 people at Twickenham. “I’m not one for being the centre of attention, I don’t like standing out in the crowd, but I was concerned about my team-mates. I knew I had to tell them before they read it in the paper. The only way was to tell them all together.”Bell still finds the resulting video of him unburdening his problems to his team-mates uncomfortable viewing, but Flats is glad he went ahead. “The lads didn’t know a thing. What was funny is that Belly didn’t mention it was depression and at the time he was going through a divorce, so a few of them thought he was coming out as gay, like Gareth Thomas, so in the middle of his speech, he blurted out, ‘I’m not gay’, and it broke the ice. It was very brave of him to do it.”Tight squeeze: Bell and Flatman get to grips with WaspsIn the aftermath of the interview, Bell was inundated with supportive messages.“The response was overwhelming. Lots of rugby people confided in me that they had been struggling and I’d have never known. I still get a couple of messages a week, which shows that a small sacrifice from me still resonates with people.” One of the challenges all players face is forging a life once the umbilical cord of rugby has been cut, and Bell is no different. “It was my job for 19 years but life is different now, I’m not a rugby player anymore. It’s very strange to not be part of it.”Flatman feels relieved that Bell opened up while still in playing colours, but wishes he’d done it sooner. “If Belly had spoken out six months earlier, he’d have had longer to deal with it in the best environment on earth: the changing room. Rugby players are ruthless. They’ll rip you to pieces but they love you for it. The end of a rugby career is an unsettling time for an ex-pro. For many, it’s that fear of going into the unknown.”Flatman says another reason why the change is so challenging is that after you’re cocooned in a close-knit team environment, you come to rely on your team-mates. “I realised only recently that I turned to my team-mates when anything was happening in my life,” he says. “Nowadays my wife is the friend she always thinks she should have been to me.”Many high-profile sportsmen, such as Stan Collymore, Marcus Trescothick and Ricky Hatton, have revealed their mental health battles and Bell says they deserve credit as trailblazers. “If I’d been the first person in sport to speak out, I may have had second thoughts. Yet in the game I hoped people would understand who I was, what I’ve done and where I was coming from.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS While Bell was the first high-profile rugby player in Britain to openly admit to a struggle with depression, he wasn’t the first worldwide. All Black great John Kirwan had done it years before. “JK is an inspiration,” says Bell. “A few weeks before I did the article, I was involved in the Help for Heroes game at Twickenham where he was coach to the Northern Hemisphere XV. I was struggling and wanted to make a beeline for him but bottled it. Luckily I was involved with him in a Baa-Baas game after the interview and he said, ‘Brother, why didn’t you say anything?’ before we had a long chat.”Eight months on, Bell is coaching at Lydney RFC and in a far more positive frame of mind. “I’d been suffering on and off for a decade or more and was going through a tough time. On the advice of my doctor, I took antidepressants and it was the best thing I could have done. Speaking out was a turning point and lifted a huge weight off my shoulders.”Country calling: The early years training with EnglandBell says credit must go to the RPA for their continued support. “Damian Hopley (RPA chief executive) has been proactive in player support along with my former front-row buddy David Barnes. The LPP programme has been round for a while and I’d like to think in my little way that I’ve helped. It’s just sad that it took the death of former Sale player Selorm Kuadey (who took his own life) to highlight mental illness, but sometimes out of a tragedy comes a positive.”The last eight months haven’t been entirely without their drawbacks, however. “I’ve not spoken to my brother sinceand my relationship with my mother is very strained.” Bell, who has four children aged 11, eight, six and four, looks to the future with genuine hope. “I’m busy at work doing mortgage advice and I’m upbeat. I’m not saying there aren’t bad days but things have improved. I’m off antidepressants and have been ‘clean’ for a year. I’m busy enough to not be too introspective. Before when I wasn’t busy, I may have faltered but now I understand who I am as a person. I’m older and wiser.”Flatman, for his part, is happy to see his friend on an upward curve. “Belly has been hugely courageous but once you’ve said you have a problem it doesn’t mean that’s the end of it. Part of your journey is being strong enough to repeatedly say ‘I’m not okay’ and having someone to talk to. There are a number of people who would be there for Duncan in a second if he sent a text or made a call, but when you put the light off you’re on your own and that can be brutal.”Flatman, for one, hadn’t picked up that Bell was struggling. “I’m not going to claim I did, though I had a feeling rugby was coming to an end for him and wondered how he’d cope. He never liked getting shouted at or told what to do. We used to joke that he needed his tyres pumped up, but some of the best players in the world are like that.”Moving on: Bell is forging a career outside rugbyFlatman, whose father and sister are psychologists, says it’s vitally important that all of us are on hand to offer support. “It’s not up to you to define if you have mental health issues but if you’re struggling, think who to speak to and have that conversation. Rugby players spend a lot of time beating away unconscious thoughts of anxiety. It’s a very pressured environment where you get critiqued in front of your peers on a day-to-day basis. On the outside you say you’re fine, but on the inside you’re hurting.”Bell agrees and hopes that society increasingly looks out for friends and family. “For many, the hardest thing is finding the right person to talk to. It’s still taboo in some places and perceived as a weakness. Some think there can’t be anything worse than telling their family there’s something wrong ‘upstairs’. The first session I had with a professional, I took the mickey out of myself for half- an-hour. Before she asked, ‘Why are you here?’ I found it easier than sitting down with close family.”The final words go to Flatman. “There are different types of help: confiding in someone you trust or seeing a professional who knows how to help.“When I was injured, having my wife to make me a cup of tea was invaluable but it wasn’t going to mend my shoulder. I suppose it’s qualified support and unqualified support and hopefully Duncan knows he now has both.”Don’t forget, you can download the feature here, as it appeared in our magazine.center_img Time to Change is England’s biggest mental health anti-stigma programme, run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.

Wine Country Farmhouse / Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

first_img Landscape Architect:Einwiller KuehlLow Voltage Consultant:Marchand Wright & AssociatesCity:CalistogaCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Nic LehouxText description provided by the architects. Located in Calistoga, a small town in Northern California’s Napa Valley, this renovated farmhouse is placed gently into a landscape of grape vines and matured walnut trees. The clients, local winemakers, desired a modern dwelling that would complement the small estate while working within the structure of the former residence. With the home’s new design, the relationship to site and ambiguity of the plan are simplified through the subtle shifting of openings and partitions, and the addition of key unifying elements.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxSave this picture!First Floor Plan | RenovatedSave this picture!© Matthew MillmanWhile the previous residence and its newly renovated form share a similar programmatic layout, the inhabitant experience has been reimagined through the clear definition of public and private spaces. The main entry, which once awkwardly directed visitors to the second-floor master suite, has been shifted to the center axis of the house and now guides people directly into the open living room and dining area. A cedar-clad utility spine reinforces this articulated boundary and guides one’s view through the communal space to the vineyards beyond.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanThe use of cedar siding throughout the renovated portions of the home helps to define the interventions and accentuate the traditional gray-painted cedar shake, punched windows, and white trim of the former design. This same wood detailing is repeated in the cladding of the expanded kitchen volume, the catalyst for the renovation, which takes on new prominence as the hub of the house and gateway to an expanded deck, rectilinear pool, guesthouse, and renovated water tower. The yard includes numerous opportunities for entertaining, including a built-in barbecue, fire pit, and bocce ball court, with views of the vineyards beyond.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanMaterials used help to define programmatic elements throughout the dwelling. Durable basalt floors in common areas, a nod to the geology of the region, contrast the softness of reclaimed Doug fir used in private spaces. Warm hemlock cabinetry and rich copper tones of the fireplace surround reflect the hues of the exterior landscape and balance the clean lines and crisp expression of white painted drywall.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanProject gallerySee allShow lessCentrifugal Tendencies: Tallinn – Moscow – NovosibirskExhibition26 Handy Architecture Cheat SheetsInfographics Share 2016 Projects Wine Country Farmhouse / Bohlin Cywinski JacksonSave this projectSaveWine Country Farmhouse / Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Save this picture!© Nic Lehoux+ 22 Share “COPY” Manufacturers: Lutron, Ann Sacks, Duravit, Fleetwood, Heath Ceramics, Moooi, Revere, Subzero/Wolf, TechLighting, Toto, First Last & Always, Kalista, VALVO Hiram Banks ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation•Calistoga, United States ArchDaily Year:  Photographs:  Nic Lehoux, Matthew Millman Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project General Contractor: Structural Engineer: center_img Lighting Design: Gregory Mottola, Aaron Gomez, Shawn Wood Daedalus Structural Engineering Houses United States Lead Architects: Architects: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Year Completion year of this architecture project Wine Country Farmhouse / Bohlin Cywinski Jackson ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Photographs Fairweather & Associates CopyAbout this officeBohlin Cywinski JacksonOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationCalistogaUnited StatesPublished on October 02, 2017Cite: “Wine Country Farmhouse / Bohlin Cywinski Jackson” 02 Oct 2017.

Informed by our clients’ love of stark materiality and clean aesthetics, Ross unexpectedly provides a warm and joyful environment. Their new suburban home comfortably houses a family of five, their dog and an art collection while alluding to the industrial lofty spaces of a converted warehouse they had all become accustomed. Being nestled within a private garden, Ross completely satisfies our clients brief.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellIn a heritage precinct defined by its stylistic diversity, Ola Studio aimed to present a confident contemporary architecture to the neighbourhood that both referenced and conversed with its local context. Ross’ immediate neighbours are both white painted timber single storey period bungalows, one is double fronted with a dominant gable, the other is single fronted with a hip roof. We carefully managed the larger scale of Ross with a gabled form that took the same pitch as the neighbours but stepped in scale to establish a fitting rhythm of hips and gables within the streetscape. The bold form of Ross is flanked by two low rendered forms that enhance the presence of the neighbouring dwellings and clearly demarcate the line between public and private spaces beyond.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe house is a bold sculptural piece; elegantly defined by its divisible realms. The public façade and entry, the living area within a secluded garden, and the private realm upstairs, each providing uniquely evocative environments for the public and residents. Upstairs is wrapped in black vertical aluminium angles and is a study in dealing with domestic privacy within the urban environment.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe gable running the length of the house tapers in scale and peels away from the southern boundary to ensure sunlight is maintained to the neighbour. The reduced scale sees a house like silhouette floating in the backyard over the living spaces below. The long northern aspect is carefully designed with passive solar principles and the rear garden is cut into the land creating a deep courtyard and in turn managing the afternoon sun. The house is powered by a photovoltaic installation. There is ample insulation and the house is shaded by the skin of battens, overcoming the thermal issues around a black house.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe ground floor space is immersed in landscape. Upstairs a veil of battens provides private outdoor garden spaces awash with dappled light that change through day and night. The light softly illuminates the sculpted interior of the internal spaces. A long void creates view lines between the various external spaces, emphasizing the importance of garden and connecting the realms of the house.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe minimal aesthetic of the interior acts as a gallery for the client’s art collection. The sculptural elements of the steel stair and concrete kitchen bench engage in conversation. The use of mass materials to form detailed interior objects contrasts to the external form that is singularly defined by light repetitive elements.  A three-way collaboration between architect, owner and builder laboured continuously in order to deliver a well-balanced cost to quality result.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessMARLMARL Sanjo-Street Kyoto / Atsushi Suzuki / TANSEISHASelected ProjectsPape Loft / StudioACSelected Projects Share 2018 Photographs Architects: Ola Studio Area Area of this architecture project Area:  414 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Australia ArchDailylast_img read more

Execution of the facade with white lattice bricks at a distance of twenty centimeters from the main facade, which provides the desire to create a two-shell facade, and considering the location of the property, causes the exchange of fresh and natural air and sustained air between the layers. Five-centimeter bricks are restrained at a distance of twenty centimeters to eliminate the need for continuous use of refrigeration devices, and the choice of white color indicates the designer’s insistence on the amount and balance of temperature and even save on living costs in the building. A different point from the area that can be implemented with the available forces in a short time, resulting in the least damage to the design has been considered.Save this picture!© Mahshid KariziParking and storage: The parking space is divided into two separate parts using the color difference in the implemented materials. As we walk towards the warehouses, the orange color, which is inspired by the color of the frames in the facade, creates a warm atmosphere. The wicker space of the entrance of the building, which will make the beauty of the game of light and shadow doubly during different hours and days of the year, has helped a lot to the difference between the two parts.Save this picture!In the space of the stairs, handmade concrete molded at the project site And the use of cable, which has replaced the installation of iron fences, etc. in the stairs is one of the items that have been considered and implemented in terms of economy and saving in the project.

Even so, the water temperature was a chilly 41 degrees and the wind was gusting on the lake’s shore. Swimmers shrieked as they ran into the water, fetched a balloon from a floating buoy line, and hurried back to dry land.Some boldly bared their beach bods in speedos and tube tops, while others opted for the full coverage of animal onesies or Santa suits. A troupe of skeletons took home the prize for most creative costume before emerging from the water with smears of face paint and glitter, and a contingent from St. Catherine of Siena sported t-shirts with the slogan, “I’d rather be a wet water walker than a dry boat rider.”Team “Ithaca Safety League” took home a prize for their skeleton costumes.

While she looked a bit cold as her husband splashed her, she said the dip “is the best way to start the new year.”For ICR, which doesn’t receive government funding, the event provided a financial boost that will help maintain services throughout the year.“It was an overwhelming success,” Miller said. Thanking participants and donors, she said, “It’s truly a community event. It takes all of us to make it happen.” Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: ITHACA, N.Y. –  Thirty brave souls dove into the new year with a frosty swim in Cayuga Lake for Tuesday’s 4th Annual Ithaca Chill Challenge, raising more than $40,000 for Ithaca Community Recovery. It was the first time the fundraiser, which is held each New Year’s Day at the Ithaca Yacht Club, reached its ambitious goal.ICR is a non-profit organization that works to support addiction recovery by providing space for meetings and activities at 518 West Seneca Street. When planning committee co-chairs Carol Miller and Judy Epstein launched the Chill Challenge in 2016, they were hoping to raise funds to maintain safe, supportive facilities at 518.Roy Murdough, Carol Miller and Judy Epstein present prizes at the Ithaca Chill Challenge. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice)Thomas Evans, president of the ICR board of directors, told participants Tuesday that Miller and Epstein’s efforts have allowed for major improvements at 518, including meeting space renovations, new bathrooms and security upgrades.Thanking Miller and Epstein, Evans said, “They started it, they continue to run it, and without them, we wouldn’t have $125,000 at 518.”Epstein said she’s thrilled the 2019 event reached its $40,000 fundraising goal.“We’re just so grateful,” she said. She said she was also grateful that she didn’t have to take the frigid dip.All 64 participants registered for the Chill Challenge had a chance to avoid the cold waters of Cayuga by convincing their friends and family to pay to keep them on shore. On each person’s fundraising page, donors could vote to “dip ’em” or “dodge ’em,” either sending participants running into the lake or leaving them comfortably dry. About half of the participants, like Epstein, were spared the swim by collecting more money in the “dodge” column.Costumes ranged from an elephant onesie to a captain’s suit at the Ithaca Chill Challenge.
