What it’s like to…train with the All Blacks

By on June 23, 2021

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Imagining myself drilling the ball to within a metre, much like Henry Slade in the Premiership semi-final against Saracens, my compass is slightly skewed as I pull a kick to 10m out, and send a spiral kick a metre the wrong side of the corner flag. He who dares…loses, in my case.Come fly with me: Practising lifting at the lineoutWith the basics covered, the next skill was more complicated; being lifted at the lineout. Stepping up to add his penneth was 6ft 5in behemoth Fifita, who had announced himself on the Test stage with a frightening display of power running as he skittled would-be Pumas defenders in the Rugby Championship. In heavy Tongan accent, he explains how you can reach heights of 12 feet with the correct lift. Demonstrating how he gets in the air, he adds, “You have to get a spring in your step and make sure your lifters grab you by the thighs, not your shorts. Make sure you hold onto your jumpers.”As we were thrown up into the air – a slightly disconcerting feeling – Havili threw balls up to us to take ‘off the top’ as we pop the ball to an awaiting scrum-half and descend less than balletically.Last up was practicing what elite hookers refine day-in, day-out; the lineout throw. Sweeney said the key was to get a spring in your throwing motion and leave your hands pointing upwards so you got a upwards trajectory and spin. With a knackered right shoulder, I found it far trickier than it looks on TV. With Dylan Hartley and Jamie George both around the 95 per cent accuracy mark, you soon realize the difference between Test stars and mere mortals.Still got it: Jones whips a precision pass out wideWith our heads crammed full of useful tips, it was time to put them to practice with a final blast of touch rugby, while the All Blacks ‘coaches’ watched on. As we attempted some flicks, feints and offloads with moderate success, Barrett and Perenara, ambled over at the break to give some advice. “You’re doing too much running, you need to get some width to your play. Let the ball do the work. Play smarter.” Wise words indeed, as we finished the morning looking like something resembling a rugby team. A crisp Autumnal morning in South-West London saw a quartet of All Blacks showing the ropes to a group of eager, but limited journalists The genteel surroundings of the Lensbury Club on the bank of the River Thames was the location for a training session with a difference. Hosted by four All Blacks; World Cup winner Beauden Barrett, blindside Vaea Fifita, 39-cap scrum half TJ Perenara and Crusaders utility back David Havili, the task was simple, to improve the skills of a group of journalists whose best years were largely behind them.The morning was reminiscent of the Seventies game show, the Generation Game, where experts in their field demonstrate a skill before members of the public make a hash of replicating it to laughter from the gallery.We started off with the basics; kicking, passing and catching.Just like that: TJ Perenara shows the watching crowd how to send a pinpoint passRugby is supposed to be a simple game, so Perenara started by getting the assorted melee to start rifling passes into a round red hoop hanging off the left upright from 15m. “Try and leave your hands pointing in the same direction you want the ball to go”, he says, as a series of balls fizz wildly off-target. “That’s great guys. You’re doing well.” Perenara proffers, sympathetically.Next up, with skills coach Neil Sweeney chipping in, it’s kicking and catching practice. In pairs, we’re asked to kick to our partner about 15m away. We’re directed to kick the ball on a flat-trajectory. It’s looks like a toned-down version of Barrett’s now trademark kick-pass that has set up countless All Blacks tries, including Jordie Barrett’s slapdown for Ngani Laumape’s try in the Third Test. Watching intently, stroking his chin, is Havili. “Try and kick through the point of the ball and make sure your toes are pointing in the direction you want the ball to go,” he adds helpfully.Watch and learn: Beauden Barrett gives some tips for kicking from handWith our confidence buoyed and sun breaking through the early morning mist, we’re asked to change tack and loft the ball skywards with our partner catching the ball. After a few static takes, Sweeney asks us to push off our leading foot and take to the air, in the same way you see full-backs like Leigh Halfpenny and Mike Brown effortlessly doing in front of 70,000 fans.After taking a few balls cleanly, emboldened, I asked my fellow journalist to stick it up into the skies. Bad move. As the ball moves in the air and I shuffle my leaden feet toward the ball as it hurtles downwards. I manage to catch the ball slightly off balance and roll backwards in a less-than-gallant man. “Just like Liam Williams,” Barrett chuckles, picking up my Welsh accent, as I attempt to regain my composure. “What I always tell people is to tuck their elbows in so if the ball goes through the outstretched hands, the ball won’t go straight through the gap.” Point taken.Finish in the corner: The novices play while the experts look onThe final kicking exercise was about precision. From 35m out, with little wind, Sweeney asks us to kick for the corner. “Imagine it’s the last play of the game, lactic acid is building up in your legs and you’re six points down. You need to set up an attacking lineout for one final shot at victory.” While the brain told us we still had our mojo, our aching bodies told us to leave it to the professionals. With France, Scotland and Wales to navigate over the coming weeks, it was been a privilege to learn from the world’s number one side but we’ll be watching safely from the sidelines from now on.The All Blacks and Beauden Barrett are ambassadors of Tudor, the luxury Swiss watch makers.

School of Hard Knocks 2012 – Episodes 3 & 4 (Finale)

By on June 18, 2021

first_imgTuesday May 15, 2012 School of Hard Knocks 2012 – Episodes 3 & 4 (Finale) Today we complete the School of Hard Knocks with the final two episodes, as well as some updates, and a chat to one of the participants. It was a fantastic eight week-long project, and has yet again made genuine changes to the lives of those involved. If you haven’t watched the show yet, go ahead and watch the two parts below, but be sure to come back and read more as we’ve caught up with one of the standout leaders, Michael Finnegan, to find out what he and some of the other guys are up to lately.He told us that the experience has made a ‘real and lasting difference in my life’.“We trained with World Cup winners and had Shaun Edwards as our defensive coach for the day. The whole experience has been amazing and I’ve made some friends for life from it all,” he said.“Myself, Colin, Bruno, Hames, Lee and Jack Cannon, Pedro, Louis, Demitrius, and Daniel are meeting up at the end of the month for a few beers in Central London.“Over the last couple of weeks I have been working with Saracens and Hitz Rugby as a community coach. I’m currently looking for full-time employment and I continue to play rugby wherever a prop is needed,” Michael said. He also explained that the charity he was working on (as mentioned at the end of the show) isn’t going ahead unfortunately, as the setup costs are too steep at this stage.Some recent updates on a few of the guys:Pedro: Studying for an HND in IT at London School of Science and Technology. He is hoping to get CISCO qualified as well and is seeking sponsorship and an internship to help him achieve these goals. He continues to play rugby Haringey Rhinos.Bruno: Is currently playing for Southend RFC but Lyn Jones is keen to get him involved in the London Welsh set up, providing that his basic skill sets improve. Southend play in the 4th tier of English Rugby. He is working closely with Michael Henderson, and wants to get a professional qualification in the fitness industry.Colin: Just got a job in recruitment and starts in June. He continues to perform in Comedy clubs across London, and is playing rugby for Haringey Rhinos.Louis: He still works as a DJ part time and has been training as a wide receiver for an American Football team in north London, but rugby is his passion, and he will be training with Blackheath from July. He is available for full time work opportunities.Anthony: Is currently working for Paddy Power and plays for Shooters Hill RFC.James: Plays Rugby for Edinburgh Northern RFC and has just finished his internship with Grant Thornton. He wants to train as a teacher and is working towards his coaching badges.Many of the participants are still looking for full-time employment, so if you can help out in any way, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Ken Cowan at [email protected] always, thanks to Sky Sports for a brilliant production, and everyone else involved. Both parts below are over 45 minutes long, but extrememly inspirational, enjoyable, and well worth watching. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error School of Hard Knocks Related Articles 384 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 4, The… 386 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 3 389 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 2 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. The project consists of a 200 square meter one story single-family home, located in the city of Santiago de Chile, in the commune of Colina. The area is generally rural, characterized by low density and large plots of land. The 5.000 square meters plot is part of a condominium with large arborized avenues and high standard homes.Save this picture!AxonometricThe building is planned as a rectangular concrete extrusion arranged from east to west, placed closer to the south edge of the plot, giving a larger extension of land to the garden onthe north side. To the south, service areas are found, such as driveways, parking spaces, kitchens, a laundry room, and lavatories.Save this picture!© Croxatto y Opazo arquitectosThe house interiors are disposed and arranged in a way that allows the bedrooms, aliving room,a dining room and a study, to be opened to the great yard through large windows. This makes the inside-outside connection of all rooms possible.Save this picture!General PlanThe wide thermal oscillation between winter and summer, with high temperatures in the summer and at the same time sub-zero temperatures in winter, leads us to propose a solution that can regulate these variations, delivering comfort to the house throughout the year. This is how the “Parrón” appears, as an element attached to the concrete volume, extending along the entire north façade, generating a solar filter and thermal/climatic control. The “Parrón” is understood as a wooden structure, a basic system in its conception, built from simple elements such as recycled oak that will serve as a support for the growth of climbing species of deciduous nature, which depending on the time, vary their density and foliage acting as a filter. This allows and restricts the entry of sunlight. Save this picture!© Croxatto y Opazo arquitectosUnder the “Parrón” there is a main terrace in front of the living-dining room and two smaller terraces in front of the bedrooms. These are consolidated as intermediate spaces or interior-exterior transition spaces. Save this picture!© Croxatto y Opazo arquitectosBetween the terraces, small incisions are made to the volume. These give rise to small patios that incorporate natural lighting to the enclosures that face them, with the aim of fusing the project to the ground. Save this picture!© Croxatto y Opazo arquitectosThis building presents simple lines with constructive details of small complexity, which through the concrete and woodas its main materiality, solves the totality of the order.Project gallerySee allShow lessJasmax Designs New Zealand’s EXPO 2020 National Pavilion Inspired by Māori CultureArchitecture NewsOld Sag Harbor Road / Blaze Makoid ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Croxatto y Opazo arquitectos Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Architects: Croxatto y Opazo arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/894582/parron-house-croxatto-y-opazo-arquitectos Clipboard 2017 Residential Architecture Parrón House / Croxatto y Opazo Arquitectos CopyAbout this officeCroxatto y Opazo ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesColinaChilePublished on October 02, 2018Cite: “Parrón House / Croxatto y Opazo Arquitectos” [Casa Parrón / Croxatto y Opazo Arquitectos] 02 Oct 2018.

What Iowa shows

By on June 15, 2021

first_imgIt would be rash to read too much into the caucuses held Feb. 1 in Iowa, so far as predicting the outcome of the next U.S. presidential election. Iowa is not typical of the country. Had those participating in the caucuses moved to the right, that might be dismissed as not representative of the great masses of people concentrated in large cities. The U.S. as a whole is much more multinational, much more people of color than Iowa. But the voters there didn’t move to the right. Those in the Democratic Party caucuses almost selected Bernie Sanders as the Democratic candidate, and the Republicans pulled back somewhat from Donald Trump, whose racist, anti-immigrant vitriol is exceeded in volume only by his immense fortune. Trump has positioned himself as an outsider and a warrior against the putrid establishment — as though his billions did not put him square in the middle of that nest of vipers.From the point of view of reflecting the class struggle, the entire electoral process is very skewed. Some of the most militant actions being taken by low-wage workers these days involve immigrants, many of them undocumented. They are not allowed to vote, so the impact they are having on organized labor and on class consciousness in general is not reflected in the elections — except insofar as it has raised a general consciousness of oppression and the need for change, particularly among young people. Yet, all this considered, we cannot ignore what appear to be distinct signs of a shift in the political mood, reflected in the Iowa votes.That Sanders, the Senator from Vermont who describes himself as a democratic socialist, came within three-tenths of a percentage point to edging out Hillary Clinton, a veteran of Democratic Party establishment politics for decades, merits analysis. It probably came as a shock to many who have lived their whole lives in a political environment where socialism has been considered treasonous, if not downright satanic.In Europe, where capitalism has been just as venal and murderous as in the U.S., from the days of outright colonialism to today’s imperialist stranglehold over most of the world’s finances, a “democratic socialist” in politics is no big deal. The ruling classes there know how to coexist with parties that “peacefully” compromise with the system, hoping they can extract a few concessions. But in the U.S., the expression of support for socialism of any kind by the voters has been totally suppressed since the days when Eugene Debs ran for president from his jail cell in 1920.Sanders actually does not represent any party, which may be part of his strength at this point in the race, when the political establishment is highly suspect. He is an Independent, but running as a Democrat in the primaries. There can be no doubt that the deepening pain felt by large sections of the working class and many in the middle class, too, has influenced this electoral outcome. Whether it’s health, joblessness, debt, imprisonment, depression and despair, the crumbling infrastructure, the growing climate crisis — the majority of the population have become increasingly disenchanted with the system. This is turning into anger against the super-rich and their political pawns. In many cases, it has led to activism around a sea of social causes, most of it progressive, although not all.Nowhere is the pain being felt more keenly than among the nationally oppressed peoples — Black, Latino/a, Indigenous, Muslim, documented and undocumented. All social indices show the devastating effects of racism and discrimination in this country.This is where Sanders has been weak. And the Iowa polls showed it. The Black vote there, according to preliminary reports, went mostly to Clinton. Sanders’ focus on the workers — or “middle class” — as a whole leaves out the tremendous inequalities that exist, even after centuries of struggle by Black, Latino/a and Indigenous people against oppression and even extermination at the hands of the European settlers and their descendants. When Sanders talks about improving the economy, attacking the huge income disparity, tackling corporate criminals, it is all good. But it is not enough.Without solidarity, no real progress can be made by the working class in the United States against the ruthless exploitation and oppression imposed every day by the bosses and their repressive state. In this country, the biggest obstacle to solidarity has been racism and national oppression. It’s a good thing that the Black Lives Matter movement did not wait for the elections before getting out into the streets and mobilizing against racist police terror and all the other injustices of this system. This is where any progress will happen — for the same reasons that it took the Civil Rights movement to break down segregation as a legal system. Workers World Party is running its own candidates in this presidential election — Monica Moorehead for president and Lamont Lilly for vice president, both African Americans — to emphasize that the struggle against racism and national oppression is the key to any successful uprooting of this decaying capitalist system. We feel this is a good time to reach out, not just to get votes, but to inspire those who have had it with capitalism and need to know that building multinational class solidarity will unleash the power we need to win such a revolutionary sea change.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Popular protest shakes former French colony Mali

By on

first_imgBamako, Mali, July 10.Tens of thousands of Malians in the capital Bamako came out in the streets July 10 for three days of protest demanding the resignation of Mali’s president Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta (IBK).The government reported that 11 people died and 158 were wounded. The June 5 Movement: Rally of Patriotic Forces, one of the prime forces in the opposition and the protest, said casualties were much higher.Protesters blocked Bamako’s streets with burning tires and piles of trash, erected barricades and shut down the capital city. Organizers sent small groups from the Monument of Independence, one of the gathering spots, to occupy the TV and radio station and legislative offices. Cops had to pry out the occupiers with tear gas, but not before offices were trashed and cars burned. Demonstrators blocked bridges over the Niger River. (Maliweb.net, July 13)The reasons different groups give for demanding that President Keïta resign vary, but generally include: He is corrupt. He has not made the problem of hunger in Mali a priority. He manipulated the recent legislative elections.Espoir Mali Koura, a new group in Mali that demands a complete system change, charges that under Keïta’s watch, armed groups in central Mali have completely destroyed 400 villages and killed 10,000 people. (tinyurl.com/y5vwsacq; in French)The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) sent a team to Bamako the third week of July to mediate between the opposition and the government. Headed by Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan, the team had made no progress by July 20. A number of countries neighboring Mali express concern that Mali’s troubles could be contagious.U.S. backs French troops in MaliMali’s 20 million people inhabit a half-million square miles of territory in West Africa. While there has been a UN-sponsored peacekeeping mission in northern Mali since 2013, France also has 4,500 troops in Mali who aggressively prop up IBK’s government. France is the former colonial power and leading imperialist power in Mali, where French is the official language. Mali’s currency is tied to the Euro.The French military deployment gets essential logistical support from the U.S. AFRICOM command and intelligence from the U.S. drone base in Agadez, Niger.In early June, a group of French helicopter gunships engaged an armed group that opposes the French presence and the Malian government, in the area where Mali borders Niger and Burkina Faso. The French press sometimes calls these groups jihadists, sometime drug smugglers, sometimes Islamic militants. The groups have no apparent affiliation with political forces agitating in the western part of Mali around Bamako or ethnic militias in central Mali.The armed insurgents managed to shoot down one of the French helicopters, but the pilots and gunner survived. Another helicopter landed under the insurgents’ fire and managed to rescue the three wounded French fliers by the skin of their teeth.A month later the footage of this rescue, with video of the helicopter going down and interviews with the rescuers, was shown with great fanfare on France TV2 the day before Bastille Day, July 14 — the day when the French imperialist bourgeoisie celebrates its military.On Bastille Day itself, Army Minister Florence Parly gave solemn assurances on France TV2 that France was going to keep its troops in Mali for “Operation Barkhane.” She said that despite the COVID-19 crisis, the French must celebrate their army and its victories.Hunger and COVID-19The Sahel, which includes parts of the countries of Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso and Chad, has had to confront pandemics like SARS and Ebola in the past few years, but COVID-19 has turned into a virus of hunger in the Sahel. The pandemic intensifies the disruptions caused by global warming and the low-level armed conflicts in central and northern Mali and in neighboring Burkina Faso and Niger.Closure of the borders between these countries required by the conflicts has had some unintended consequences, both for the subsistence farmers and herders in these countries.July through September is when most of the farmers plant crops in the Sahel. They buy their seed on the international market, which means — for landlocked countries — truck shipment across borders.Herders, whose migration corridors follow the logic of geography, rather than the distorted schemes left over from the region’s colonial past, have seen important markets and major grazing areas closed.

A 3-judge bench comprising of Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and Indira Banerjee took into consideration the current situation with regard to the eco system and fragility of the mountain terrains to order that the width of the road would remain at 5.5 metres. A High Power Committee constituted by Supreme Court in August 2019 submitted a Report in July 2020 whereby 13 members recommended following standards prescribed in a circular from 2012 while 5 members, including the Chairman, were in favour of going ahead according to the 2018 circular. The 2018 circular prescribes a width of 5.5 metres for the intermediate lane configuration along with two-lane structures for National Highways in hilly and mountainous terrains. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta contended that it was only a minority view of the Committee that the 2018 circular be complied with. Adding that since the road covers the India-China Border, the terrain in question sees movement of Army vehicles. Therefore, he urged, the width of the carriageway must be 7 metres wide, not 5.5 metres. Refusing to accept this submission, Justice Nariman asserted that “the 2018 circular will alone apply.” “Shri Tushar Mehta, learned Solicitor General, persisted with his arguments that the 2018 circular is only prospective in nature. We are well aware of the distinction between something which is retrospective in the sense that it applies for the first time to projects which are already completed as opposed to ongoing projects, where it is necessary to take stock of the current situation and then move forward. Having taken stock of the current situation and of the fragility generally of the eco system in mountain terrain, we are of the view that this argument has no legs to stand on.” -Records the Order Appearing for the Citizens for Green Doon, the Petitioner NGO, senior advocate Sanjay Parikh apprised court of devastation caused to mountains as a result of violations of directions by authorities. Recording that a “great deal of devastation has occurred in certain areas and that plantation should be taken up in right earnest”, the Apex Court noted that “we have no doubt that this will be carried out” and disposed off the application. The char dham project is a 900KM, all-weather highway project which connects four towns state of Uttarakhand including Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath.On August 8, 2019, a bench comprising Justices R F Nariman and Surya Kant had modified the NGT order approving the Char Dham Highway project and constituted a High Powered Committee to assess and study the impact of the project on the Himalayan valleys.In the meeting held on July 2020, the HPC could not reach a unanimous decision on the road width for the proposed highway, resulting in the matter reaching before the bench.Click Here To Download Order  Next Storylast_img read more

No Cause Has Been Determined Yet On The South End Residential Fire

By on May 2, 2021

first_imgThe Fire Report reads as follow:“5222 Simpson Avenue Structure Fire                       3-15-2017On Wednesday evening, March 15th, the Ocean City Fire Department responded to reports of a structure fire, 2 story wood frame building, at 5222 Simpson Avenue.  Engine #3 arrived on scene minutes after the call was received and reported heavy fire on the first and second floors.  Engine 2, Deputy Chief 1, Engine 1 and Truck 1 arrived on scene.Engine 3 established a water supply and began to protect the building to the North of the fire building, within minutes all OCFD units were working and had 4 attack handlines in operation.  OCFD crews were able to protect the exposure property to the North, containing the fire to the original fire building, and knock down the majority of visible fire within minutes.  Crews encountered heavy winds and icy conditions which made initial fire suppression operations very difficult.A full fire department recall was initiated along with automatic aid responses from Margate FD, Marmora FD and Upper Township Rescue Squads.Due to the heavy winds the fire quickly spread throughout the structure.The fire was placed under control and overhaul operations were perform approximately 60 minutes after the initial call was dispatched.The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire being dispatched.No injuries were reported.The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.”It is a blessing that there were no reported injuries at this time.OCNJ Daily would like to thank the OCFD for doing an extraordinary job in safely keeping this raging fire contained to just one home! From the street, you can see straight through the burned-out shell of the home.last_img read more

It marked the sixth straight school year in which the Raiders have either won or shared the award, a first in the 27 years the award has been presented. It was the 15th time overall Ocean City has won or shared the award.But Mainland Regional, which has won the award six times, was just a point behind the Raiders.Ocean City got off to another great start in the fall with a state championship in field hockey and conference titles in boys and girls soccer and boys cross country. Among other highlights, the Raiders won South Jersey championships in girls swimming, girls basketball and golf.Among Mainland’s highlights were a state championship in boys swimming and South Jersey titles in boys soccer and boys and girls tennis.The all-sports award was created by Prime Events and Schoppy Inc. in 1991. It was renamed in memory of Byrnes, the longtime athletics director and football coach at Holy Spirit, after he died in February, 1996. Byrnes was president of the CAL for six years and had just won his 100th football victory three months before his death.The system used to determine a school’s final score in the competition awards points for championships won – both CAL and NJSIAA – with bonuses for the number of different sports in which they were won. Under this system, which rewards a sports program’s versatility, a school that wins one championship in each of two different sports will get a higher score than if it won two championships in the same sport. Only sports in which the CAL crowns a champion are considered.Among 2016-17 highlights:Ocean City won top honors in the American Conference for the sixth straight year and eighth time in nine years.Middle Township led the National Conference for the sixth time in seven years.Ocean City has been first or tied for first in Cape May County in 19 of the last 20 years.St. Augustine won Atlantic County for the eighth time in the last 14 years.Middle Township was tops in the Coast Big Five for the seventh straight year.St. Augustine had the highest score in boys sports for the 16th time in the last 19 years.Ocean City was first in girls sports for the seventh straight year and 18th time in the award’s 27 years.Middle Township has now been best in the Coast Big Five in nine of the last 10 years.Ocean City’s score (26) equals its all-time highest in 1999.Mainland’s score (25) is its highest since it set the all-time record (32) in 2003.Wildwood Catholic’s score (11) was its highest since 2003.
