England’s lack of autumn rotation may lead to trouble

first_imgGraham Rowntree has England’s forwards in fine order. Without Alex Corbisiero and Tom Croft, they still bullied the world’s best at times this month. Even so, when your backs’ best shot at making metres is from kick-returns, it might be time to deploy a better distributor than Farrell at ten – especially when tactical kicking is also a concern.Cockerill’s primary agenda is easily exposed. Flood is out of contract next year. As club captain, he is a valuable piece of the Welford Road furniture – passing 1,000 Premiership points during Saturday’s lacklustre defeat of London Irish – and will open negotiations for a new deal after Christmas.With little left to tick off on a gleaming domestic CV, Flood will have no qualms about heading over the Channel if a role in England’s bid for the 2015 Rugby World Cup is not forthcoming. Those are the club particulars. They highlight a wider sensibility at international level.An untimely casualty: Marland Yarde pulled out of playingA raft of untimely injuries to Brad Barritt, Manu Tuilagi, Henry Trinder, Christian Wade and Marland Yarde stunted Lancaster significantly. Yarde and Wade were certainly in line to play the Pumas at least. Still, apparent reluctance to hand a start to Flood or Freddie Burns spoke volumes.For England, these autumn Tests were win-at-all-costs as a largely settled group looked to accumulate victories two years out from an assault on the Webb Ellis trophy. Lancaster wants his sides at the World Cup to contain around 500 caps (the one against the All Blacks featured just 315), so some continuity is expected. It’s the tinkering that will prove vital.Take Wales and Warren Gatland’s attitude to his own fly half berth over the past three weeks. Free from expectation thanks to a dire autumn record – four years of straight losses before the 40-6 thrashing of the Pumas 10 days ago – the New Zealander cannily saw a chance to hold auditions in problem positions. Under critique: Stuart LancasterRhys Priestland was given a shot at redemption against the Springboks on the back of sparky Scarlets form and even James Hook had a chance to translate his Top 14 excellence in the utterly abysmal Tonga game. While Dan Biggar was an important part of the Six Nations triumph, he has had to prove his unfussy skills all over again. The true must-win for Wales is the Saturday’s date with a weary Wallabies outfit and Gatland will choose his fulcrum with the benefit of a three-week trial.Lancaster is undoubtedly bringing England on nicely and the trust he shows in players is a central aspect of his unassuming leadership. But in two years’ time, Wales and Australia visit Twickenham on successive weekends. England must know their best team. Even if Farrell has undoubtedly developed into a tenacious Test match performer who usually lands his goals unflappably, that might not be enough. Blowing off the dust: Toby Flood has come on in all three of England’s November Tests, but looked a little off the paceBy Charlie MorganThe resumption of the Aviva Premiership wouldn’t have felt quite right without a strong-minded soundbite from Richard Cockerill, so it was no surprise when the Leicester honcho mischievously pondered England head coach Stuart Lancaster’s autumn selection policy in a press conference last week.His main gripe was how little Toby Flood was used during this month’s QBE Internationals and, as usual, the abrasive former hooker was provocative while making his point.Outspoken: Richard Cockerill“England still have not quite solved that 10, 12, 13 area, have they?” Cockerill said with a dash of understatement. “I’m a little bit disappointed Toby didn’t get to start. He had to enter the fray in a really important game [New Zealand] and he looked a little bit rusty because he hasn’t played.“You probably need to have a little bit more rotation and see what players can do. Owen Farrell’s clearly the first-choice ten and that’s fine, but there were opportunities to play Toby and different people in that midfield and see if there were combinations that would make it tick.”There is a point here. Across three matches at Twickenham, Flood was only afforded 13 minutes at fly-half – when an exhausted England had seen their pack’s ascendancy evaporate and were chasing a game from a standing start with the resurgent All Blacks 27-22 ahead.The Tigers man did pick up scraps of game-time against the Australia and Argentina – a combined total of 32 minutes, to be exact – but replaced Billy Twelvetrees on both occasions.This policy did instill calm in the win over the Wallabies. However, it was also a worrying echo of the 2011 World Cup quarter-final when Martin Johnson flung Flood the number 12 shirt as a frantic final resort. Flood is not a solution to indecision in the centres.

Sonny Bill Williams makes his boxing debut in Brisbane

first_imgMonday Jun 1, 2009 Sonny Bill Williams makes his boxing debut in Brisbane Toulons Sonny Bill Williams is never far from the limelight, especially of late as the former League superstar made his professional boxing debut in Brisbane last week. He also happens to be in Australia to play for the Barbarians against the Wallabies on Saturday.Williams received a mixed response from the Australian media, who had the knives out for him not too long ago after he sensationally made the switch to Union.Despite his season not being overly flash, Sonny Bill has gradually improved after injury problems, and has shown touches of class as Toulon avoided relegation from the Top 14.Against the Wallabies in Sydney this weekend hell be looking to show glimpses of the brilliance that made him one of the most highly regarded players in the NRL.Before that though, he had a slight venture into professional boxing as he provided the undercard fight ahead of his friend Anthony Mundines main event in Brisbane.Williams opponent was a Kiwi rookie brawler nicknamed The Baboon, who did his best to hype up the event before hand, crashing Mundines press conference, and then pushing Williams at the weigh-in.Williams did the business in the ring though, rocking Gary ‘Baboon’ Gurr with an uppercut late in the first round, then continuing the composed onslaught before the referee had seen enough.While in Sydney Williams took time out to donate a hefty cheque to St Vincent Hospital’s drug rehabilitation ward, which is part of the KO to Drugs awareness campaign that apparently lured him into the once off boxing appearance.The stage is now set for Sonny Bill to show his quality on the rugby field as he returns to the city that made him star, as he exchanges boxing gloves for the famous black & white kit of the Barbarians.ADVERTISEMENT :: Related Posts :: More of Sonny Bill Williams on RD Time: 04:25 Thanks to: One News, NZ Herald, TVNZ.

Journalist and blogger freed, but another blogger still detained

The police have not allowed her mother to see her since her arrest.—————————————————-Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrests of blogger Bui Thanh Hieu on 27 August and online journalist Pham Doan Trang on 28 August for criticising the ruling Communist Party’s policies towards China. Both are being held by the police.“We deplore the regime’s persecution of its critics,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Freedom of expression has contracted in recent months as a result of governmental paranoia about issues concerning relations with China. We call for the rapid release of Hieu and Trang as the criticisms they voiced posed absolutely no threat to national security and were part of their fundamental right to free expression.”Trang edits Tuan Vietnam, an online weekly that is a component of Vietnamnet, the country’s most popular news website. In a 27 July article, she criticised China’s role during Vietnam’s partition in 1954. In the past, she has condemned China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea.Hieu, who writes under the name of Nguoi Buon Gio in his blog (, was arrested in connection with “national security” issues, said a relative who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals. His blog entries during the past two months had criticised the Communist Party of Vietnam’s policies towards China and had referred to the land conflict between the government and the Catholic Church. He also wrote about a bauxite mining project in the central highlands and the criticism it has received from intellectuals, scientists and military officers because of the threat it poses to the environment. He had already been questioned several times about his political activities since taking part in an “anti-Chinese” demonstration last year.The government announced in August that it would prosecute some or all of the 27 democracy activists arrested in the course of the previous few months. Vietnam is one of the 12 countries that Reporters Without Borders has identified as “Enemies of the Internet” and was ranked 168th out of 173 countries in the 2008 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Health & Wellbeing for your Business

first_img Previous articleLimerick lessons from the pitch and boardroom on Women’s dayNext articleThe bedroom farce of Bookworms Jennifer Allen WhatsApp Email Facebook Linkedin Twittercenter_img NewsHealth & Wellbeing for your BusinessBy Jennifer Allen – March 1, 2017 952 Advertisement Print WELLBEING IS a term which we hear a lot these days. But how do you define it? Is it just a lack of illness, lack of pain, lack of headaches? Maybe, if you have suffered a lifetime of chronic ill-health, such a definition is more than enough for you. Being free of poor health is certainly a welcome relief. However, we can aim for so much more than that.Wellbeing relates to all aspects of our health, from emotional and mental health, to our nutritional status and activity levels. By building on one, you automatically enhance the other. For example, someone may be advised to take up walking to lose some weight or help their heart condition. But a pleasant side-effect may be that they are sleeping better as a result, or thinking more clearly. Or their moods feel more stable. Likewise, someone may make some changes to their diet as a step towards better health, without having clearly-defined goals. But, a short while into making those simple changes, such as eating more vegetables, staying hydrated, having more oily fish, they may notice their stiff joints starts to improve. That nagging ache in their tummy begins to calm down as they decide to ditch gluten, and so on.If we can relate the change we are trying to make to an improved quality of life, the logic of prioritising that change becomes a lot clearer. Many of us then, have never truly had first-hand experience of optimum wellbeing. Think of the types of things which might stop us getting there:Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Weight issuesLow energyAn auto-immune condition like arthritis or lupusChronic migrainesPoor sleep qualityChronic low-grade anxietyTime pressureLack of informatioon about food choicesHow many of these aspects can you identify with? Combine a couple of these factors, which is the case for most people and it really compouns the problem. Sorting out those health issues is always in the back of your mind. Then, by the time you have done everything you need to do during your day, the last thing you want to think about when you get home from work is preparing a meal from scratch or going for a run.Well, it might be easier to make some changes if your workplace became part of that change. Workplace Wellbeing Day falls on the 31st March this year, so there is still plenty time for employers and staff, to get their thinking caps on and see what steps would be most beneficial in their workplace. Does it relate to being more physically active? Should it revolve around stress management? Does the food culture in your workplace need an overhaul? By looking at the area which seems to be the top priority in your company, you can act accordingly. Have someone talk to staff about managing their time and stress. Perhaps bring in a Pilates instructor to give a demo class to staff, which could lead to regular classes, as a result. Encourage people to leave their desks to eat lunch. Is smoking still prevalent in your workplace? What steps can you take to support staff who are trying to quit?It doesn’t matter how small your company is, you can still sign up to take part. Absenteeism in smaller companies in Ireland amounts to over 4million days, which adds up to massive expenses for small businesses. Prevention is certainly better than cure and teaching people the skills to make wellbeing an integral part of their life will have a huge benefit to the company itself. The employee who feels their health and wellbeing is as consideration for the company will enjoy a better work environment, which evidence shows means they generally stay in that job longer. A happy workforce is a more productive workforce, so taking part makes senseFor some companies, this may be their first year to take part. For others, they may decide to build on something they started last year. Nutrition and physical wellbeing are the priority areas of the campaign this year, but any steps you can take to show you are actively prioritising wellbeing in the workplace will generate benefits. It also creates an environment where people can perhaps feel more comfortable expressing their health concerns, if that proves helpful for them. A work environment which insists on working outrageously long hours, exposing staff to high stress, skimping on meals and allowing no time for rest and relaxation is increasingly seen as detrimental to the health of the company, the indivudal working in it and of corse, their customers. Alas, our health care system in this country often falls into this category, needing very practical, grass-roots changes to make it a safer environment for those working in it.To sign up to the campaign and gain ideas on what your business can do, check out .last_img read more

Swift measures – new multi-stakeholder conservation project for Swifts underway

first_imgTwitter Advertisement WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limerick NewsEnvironmentLimerickSwift measures – new multi-stakeholder conservation project for Swifts underwayBy Aoife O’Reilly – May 27, 2021 74 Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Facebook AN ambitious multi-stakeholder led conservation project to save Swifts – a small migratory bird is underway in Limerick.Swifts which weigh as little as a Cadbury’s Cream Egg are fascinating birds, they are built to spend most of their lives in constant flight only ever landing to nest.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A project that aims to entice these high-flyers to stay briefly and breed in purpose build nest-boxes at five locations in Limerick City is underway.In one of the first multi stakeholder projects of its kind in Ireland, Limerick City and County Council is collaborating with BirdWatch Ireland’s Urban Bird Conservation Officer, Limerick City Parish (Church of Ireland, Limerick City), The Hunt Museum, Shannon Heritage, St Mary’s Parish Men’s Shed, the Limerick Branch of BirdWatch Ireland and Limerick City Centre Tidy Towns to support the swift population in Limerick as part of Limerick’s European Green Leaf City legacy projects.Swifts have declined by approximately 40% across Ireland in the last 10 years and have moved on to the RED List, (highest level of conservation concern), in the recently released Birds of Conservation Concern in Ireland 2020-2026 (4th edition). Once common in Limerick City, returning to nest each summer in small recesses in occupied and derelict buildings, the numbers of Swifts have dropped, mirroring national declines.The new nest boxes have been installed at: The Hunt Museum, St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick City and County Council, Merchant’s Quay, King John’s Castle Exhibition Centre and the Louvres of St Michael’s Church on Barrington Street with a total of 39 possible individual nests for the newly arrived birds to use.The explanation for the unusual birdcall which can be heard at these locations is explained by the fact that each of the five sites has a National Parks and Wildlife Service licenced lure. The lure emits the sound of the Swifts call attracting birds to the site. This increases the chances of attracting ‘first time’ nesters to the sites. The volume on the lure is on a timer and set to normal birdsong levels.Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Collins welcomed the project: “Great credit is due to all of the organisations involved and I wish this collaborative project every success and hope that a new generation of Limerick Swifts will fledge in the summer of 2021”.Ricky Whelan, Urban Bird Conservation Officer with BirdWatch Ireland said: “Swifts only need to land to breed. They are summer visitors to Ireland from Southern Africa, arriving in May and remaining until early September. We cannot be sure that the nest boxes will be occupied in this year but fingers crossed they will occupy them in years to come. With wildlife projects you always need a little luck.”Limerick Branch of BirdWatch Ireland, Maura Tuner added: “We are thrilled to have helped get this project underway and look forward to monitoring the nest-boxes over the summer of 2021. It may take a number of years for the Swifts to take up residence but we are committed to the cause and will keep working to conserve Limericks breeding swifts.”Helen O’Donnell from Limerick City Centre Tidy Towns said: “A Swift nest box project was recommended in our 2019 Tidy Towns Report. We would like to give a particular mention to St. Mary’s Men’s Shed for building some of the boxes that are installed in St. Marys Cathedral. It is just wonderful to see a project like this come to fruition. Now, let’s hope the swifts like what has been built for them.”As part of the Limerick City Swift Nest Box project the Council’s European Green Leaf team along with the successful quoting contractor MP Joyce Contracting, Patrickswell, will be compiling a case study on the project which will allow other buildings in the city to build in Swift nest boxes as part of routine renovation works or as new builds.If you are interested in helping Swifts you can download the BirdWatch Ireland – Saving Swifts guide from their website here.

Audio of investigators’ interview with officer regarding George Floyd’s arrest released

first_imgamphotora/iStockBy HALEY YAMADA, ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) — Audio recordings of an investigator interview with one of the former Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s death were released Tuesday.The interview with Thomas Lane was conducted by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension shortly after Floyd died on May 25. The audio contains a statement by Lane as to his perspective regarding Floyd’s arrest and eventual death. “Once [Floyd] kind of stopped fighting us, I think I had said again, ‘I think we should roll him onto his side,” Lane told agents during the interview.Lane said that he believed former officer Derek Chauvin, who was seen in video footage with his knee on Floyd’s neck, had told him and the other two officers to continue to hold Floyd on the ground and that there was an ambulance on the way.“That made sense to me, just because I’ve had experiences with people who are [overdosing] and they’ll be out one minute and they’ll come back and really, you know, be aggressive with me,” said Lane in the interview.“I would say I felt like it maybe could have been handled differently or we should be reassessing what we’re doing,” Lane added.All four officers involved in Floyd’s death were fired from the Minneapolis Police Department and charged with his death. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter. Lane, as well as J. Alexander Keung and Tou Thao, have been charged with aiding and abetting both second-degree murder and manslaughter.The officers have not yet formally entered pleas. Their trials are scheduled for March 2021.The release of Lane’s interview audio comes a little over a month after Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, released audio transcripts from Lane and Kueng’s body camera videos, which provided the most detailed account yet of the events that took place as police took Floyd into custody.The new transcripts were made public as part of Lane’s request to have the case against him dismissed.Thao’s attorney, Robert Paule, had also filed Thao’s body camera video with the court to support a motion to dismiss criminal charges against him, the Star-Tribune reported on Aug. 13.Paule had argued in court filings that Thao’s video proved he was focused on crowd control and that he never physically laid hands on Floyd or had a full view of what was happening as the three other officers restrained Floyd on the ground.Floyd’s death sparked nationwide outcry and massive protests around the world against racial injustice and police brutality. During his arrest, Floyd repeatedly told the officers that he could not breathe and called out for his mother before passing out. He was pronounced dead at a hospital that evening.Keith Ellison, the Minnesota attorney general, has asked the judge presiding over the officers’ cases to have all four tried jointly. Defense attorneys have until Sept. 8 to respond. The next court hearing for the four is scheduled for Sept. 11.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
