Rugby rant: One game at a time? Rubbish

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Facing the press: England’s senior figures talking to the media last year It’s okay to admit you have plans running beyond the next match. This first appeared in the April 2017 issue of Rugby World. Let me tell you what a coach or captain will say about their chances of winning the whole thing, before every major tournament from now until the sun explodes: “We are only thinking of the next game coming up, mate.”That’s a tradie, you might think. Someone who diligently nails one task, then moves on to another. What is it a lot of players say after an error? “Next job.” That makes total sense, but elite sport can’t function purely on a micro level all the time.This is the era of the ‘super coach’, those who have long-term goals for glory. Eddie Jones keeps repeating that his objective is to make England the world’s No 1 side. That is not something that can happen after the next game. So by definition, his side’s plans run beyond the next match.Now look at the other coaches entrusted with getting players up to speed for the super coach. Are we to honestly believe that these assistants work to mould players for specific opponents, game to game? What an exhausting process that would be. Maybe, though, they actually devise development plans to improve players over time…center_img To check out the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.If you have an oft-stated goal that is not attainable in the immediate future, and you have players moving forward with skill improvements over seasons, perhaps it is possible to do it all in a vacuum, convincing those involved that they are on a need-to-know basis and they don’t need to know more than who’s next. However, one thing we learnt from New Zealand banishing demons to win the 2011 World Cup is that Graham Henry and his group made a point of thinking of a long-term goal and then capping players in hodge-podge sides so that they had requisite experience to come in and play if needed, à la Stephen Donald. They developed mnemonic devices and mental ticks to help refocus for the next job, but these were tools to build something bigger than one win.We don’t need forensic detail. Or supreme arrogance. But players and assistants cannot all just be pawns in someone else’s grand plan. Those who do look ahead should express themselves.last_img read more

And to be sure, that is part of what it means. But some years ago I was reading a commentary by Raymond Brown, on the Gospel of John, and Professor Brown said that that passage not only speaks of Jesus willingly giving his life on the cross, but it actually speaks of Christmas, of God giving his very self, his very son to the world, not for anything God could get out of it, but for the good and the welfare and the well-being of the world. Of us.Someone once said, in a Christmas poem, “Love came down at Christmas.”  That’s what love is.  To give, and not to count the cost.  To give, not for what one can get, but for what the other can receive. That’s what love is. God so loved the world, that he gave.I realized recently how powerful that passage really is, when I saw an old poster from 1938.  A poster produced by the Episcopal Church at that time, to encourage Episcopalians and other Christians, and other people of faith and good will, to do whatever they could to help Jewish refugees fleeing tyranny in Europe.  To help people from all over Europe seeking refuge in America, this land of freedom. The poster depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus.  They’re fleeing persecution in Palestine, as Matthew’s Gospel says. And the poster depicting Mary, Joseph, and Jesus says in the tag line, “In the name of these refugees, help all refugees.”God so loved the world, that he gave, even to the point of risking his own son.  And in the name of those refugees, in the name of that Jesus, help all refugees, all people who suffer, anyone who’s alone, everyone who is in need.  That’s what love does.Love came down at Christmas, because God so loved the world, that he gave.In those days, a decree went out from the Emperor Augustus, that all the world should be registered.  Joseph also went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem because he was a descendent from the House of David. He went to be registered with Mary, to whom he was engaged, and who was expecting a child. While they were there, she gave birth to her first-born son, and wrapped him in bands of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.Meanwhile, in that region, there were shepherds, living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.  Then the angel of the Lord stood above them. And the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were terrified. The angel said unto them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I am bringing you good news of great joy for all people. To you is born this day, in the City of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign.  You will find the child wrapped in bands of cloth, lying in a manger.”And suddenly, there was with the angels a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace to all people on earth.”Have a blessed Christmas. Have a merry Christmas. Have a joyful Christmas.God love you, God bless you, and may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.The Most Rev. Michael B.

The sunlight and it’s brightness are one of the most remarkables aspects of the majorcan atmosphere. This project tries to activate the local conditions of the place and thus, the natural light and the control of this omnipresent sun are strongly intensified in the proposal. To allow the indirect lighting to expand in the interior and, at the same time, force the punctual penetration of the sun becomes a part of its visual experience,. However, this practice would not be completed without adapting the environmental conditions. The kindness of the Mediterranean climate exhorts the inhabitant to be bathed by it, and thus, the architecture must only make easier it presence in the game of protection and excitement that composes the richness of this complex situation, allowing vertical and horizontal paths of a sometimes dry and sometimes moistened air, and protecting us from the direct radiation of the sun without letting minimizing it’s energy.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe junction with the local materiality is done by means of a sincere association with the rock from which architecture emerges, and for that same reason, establishes a number of agreements with her through the activation and lessening of some of his variables.  And finally, the gaze. Located in a privileged point of the shore, the inhabitant of this house can establish endless connections with the horizon, with the sea and with the different reefs that emerge from it. A house to look from, but also, unavoidably, a house to be looked at, and for that purpose it shows itself to the access through an eye that wants to reproduce the experience of the sea.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánProject gallerySee allShow lessB-AND-BEE Introduces Honeycomb Campsites for FestivalsArchitecture NewsHeydar Aliyev International Airport Baku / AutobanSelected Projects Share Year:  CopyAbout this officeGEO ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta PonçaHousesSpainPublished on August 06, 2014Cite: “Vivienda Unifamiliar En Santa Ponça / GEO Arquitectos” 06 Aug 2014.

Located in St-Kilda, one of Melbourne’s most rapidly evolving suburbs, the St Kilda Extension is a modern addition which celebrates the home’s traditional beauty whilst creating a tranquil retreat.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!1st Foor PlanEntering the property from the street, it was crucial to maintain the contextual relevance of the building as to not detach it from its immediate and broader surroundings. In this way, the humbleness of the entry is typical to its neighbouring houses as the classic terracotta roof tiles and red brickwork emulates the character of the street.Save this picture!© Les HamsWhat greets you on first entry into the home is a stark contrast as the contemporary interiors, designed in collaboration with Kylie D’alessandria from Huntress Interiors hint at the sleek modern nature toward the rear of the house. The distinction between what is old and new is gestured through the light hardwood floorboards which juxtapose the front entrance and transition to a darker polished concrete. This textural creativity marries with the dark finishes of the kitchen joinery and stone island benchtop.Save this picture!© Les HamsPerhaps the home’s greatest achievement is its recognition of the existing house and its materiality which isn’t lost but rather celebrated through the extension process. This is evident as the charm of the red brick seen on the façade is carried through to the backyard and creeps surprising elements into the interior living space, adding a certain charismatic layer to the house.Save this picture!© Les HamsThe backyard is where this property truly established itself as a prime example of modern living. Contrasting bespoke materials, including the richness of the stained timber cladding and two lush vertical gardens, combine to produce the perfect hidden oasis. The full height glass panels and doors which line the pool area capture the tranquillity and calming atmosphere of the water and the light and airy nature of the white stone pool tiles. A seamless transition from the open plan kitchen and living area to the outdoor alfresco space is brought together through large cantilevered covers which appear to effortlessly float above the alfresco area.Save this picture!© Les HamsThe environmental and heritage elements are effortlessly integrated into the home without feeling forced or faked whilst the individuality of the design from both the architects and interior designers is clear. The home is both a unique reflection of the owners through its personalised textures, materials and design choices, whilst actively creating brilliant entertaining spaces and a family home to live in for many years to come. Project gallerySee allShow lessBeyond House / Ben Callery ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMalek Residential Building / HAMAAN StudioSelected Projects Share Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects St Kilda Extension / Finnis ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSt Kilda Extension / Finnis Architects Save this picture!© Les Hams+ 16 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882998/st-kilda-extension-finnis-architects Clipboard Australia Photographs “COPY”center_img ArchDaily Architects: Finnis Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses, Extension•Saint Kilda, Australia Year:  Photographs:  Les Hams Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882998/st-kilda-extension-finnis-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeFinnis ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionSaint KildaAustraliaPublished on November 14, 2017Cite: “St Kilda Extension / Finnis Architects” 13 Nov 2017.

Instant donor recognition

It is essential to thank donors for their gifts, and it makes sense to thank them as soon as possible. The immediacy of online donations offers an immediate response and acknowledgement. Such a facility is about to launch at the Arizona State University. From 1 November they will start offering a “scrolling honour role of donors” at their Web site.Scott Sheldon, Director of Development and Outreach at the ASU College of Extended Education explained: “As soon as you make a gift via the web your name appears at the top of our current on-line honor roll of donors. As each new gift comes in your name drops down the list. You can get back on top if you wish by making an additional gift.”Sheldon calls this facility “”instant stewardship” since you receive public recognition seconds after you make the gift.”He plans to enhance the system so that Verisign will approve donors credit cards in real time, “and your gift rolls into the correct account in the University all at the same time.”Sheldon announced his plans on Michael Gilbert’s Online Fundraising discussion list.

Milk is not Always Milk, Despite What the Label Says

first_img SHARE SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 27, 2017 Milk is not Always Milk, Despite What the Label Says Milk is nutritious, natural, refreshing, versatile, a good value, plentiful, and one of the few food products never touched by human hands until it reaches the consumer. Yet, it is one of the most maligned, tested, regulated, legislated, and debated food products today.  Milk producers cannot agree on what federal dairy policy should be.  Consumers cannot agree if milk is safe to drink. The government cannot even agree on what should be called milk.  A radical, social activist even claimed that milk was racist and a symbol of white supremacy.  So, with all this baggage, why do so many products want to be called milk?Soy Milk has been around for a while, but, in recent years, a whole new group of products calling themselves milk have appeared, including Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, and others.  Dairy producers have not been happy with this and have petitioned the FDA to prevent these non-dairy products from calling themselves milk. Several lawsuits have also been filed. But, to date, there has been no legal precedent or federal label requirement concerning what can be called milk.  International Dairy Foods Association president and chief executive officer Michael Dykes says the term milk on such a wide variety of products is misleading to consumers, “Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but dairy imitators do not naturally provide the same level of nutrition to the people buying them as milk does.” He added that non-dairy beverages “can mislead people into thinking these products are comparable replacements for milk, when, in fact, most are nutritionally inferior.”Dairy farmers, whether cow, goat, or sheep, can get quite emotional about this issue knowing it takes a lot less work to get milk out of a soybean than out of an animal.  What may rankle even more is that some milk manufacturers are getting into the game.  Some companies are adding milk proteins to water to increase protein content. Does this mean H2O milk will soon be in the dairy case?Last week IDFA did a flipflop and dropped their opposition to a mandatory label definition of milk. “This is an issue that needs to be resolved in the marketplace,” Dykes said. While as a free market advocate I am all for less government regulation, as a consumer I want to clarity and standardization on my food labels.  Milk should be an animal product and not come from a nut or legume.  There is enough manipulation in the marketplace today on food labels. For example, my daughter recently sent me a photo of a package in the Wal-Mart meat case with the label “chicken paws.” The pork industry has even been naming pork cuts after traditional cuts of beef.No wonder consumers don’t know where their food comes from if milk comes from a nut tree, a steak comes from a pig, and chickens have paws. If some common sense is not brought to bear on the label issue, we will soon have no idea what we are eating.By Gary Truitt Home Commentary Milk is not Always Milk, Despite What the Label Says Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 27, 2017Next articleBower Trading Market Strategy Report: The Bears are Ready for the Reports Gary Truittlast_img read more

Demand Supporting Hog Prices

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarm Groups Launch Farm Town Strong to Address Opioid EpidemicNext articleMore Farm Bill Delays in D.C. Expected Hoosier Ag Today Demand Supporting Hog Prices Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Demand Supporting Hog Prices By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 4, 2018 SHARE SHARE U.S. hog prices are being supported by strong demand, according to Purdue University economist Chris Hurt. He says pork production is expected to rise by 3 percent in the first-half of 2018 and by near 4 percent in the last-half of 2018. The theme for the pork market in 2017 was higher production and higher prices when pork production rose by 2.5 percent and hog prices were up 10 percent. The reason was strong pork demand around the world. That was led by bacon demand in the U.S. where retail prices were up about 7 percent and by pork exports expanding around 7 percent.For 2018, Hurt says the futures market appears to be following demand, as the U.S. economy is expected to grow more rapidly this year, with a drop in unemployment, along with the world economy expected to be the strongest since the 2008-2009 recession.Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Indiana Pork Producers Caught Up From Backlog, Outlook Still Bleak

first_img SHARE Indiana Pork Producers Caught Up From Backlog, Outlook Still Bleak Kendell CulpWe are a few months removed now from the temporary closing of the Tyson pork processing plant in Logansport and Indiana Packers in Delphi. How are pork producers doing now? Kendell Culp, a farmer from Rensselaer, says they are caught up.“We were behind three weeks with Tyson shut down and we got that caught up. Those hogs, even though we put them on a no-gain ration, they still were large and there’s a big discount for larger hogs like that. So, fast forward to now, several months later, we’re able to get our hogs in and get them processed at Tyson’s on a timely fashion when we need to.”Even though they’re caught up, Culp says the overall picture for livestock producers is not a pretty one as markets continue to decline.“There is an over production of pork in the United States even with the big demand in China. Thank goodness we have that demand. We would really have a big glut of pork here in the U.S. But it’s not a very positive time for most livestock producers right now. The quantity is high and the prices low, which is the way supply and demand is supposed to work, but it doesn’t paint a very positive picture for meat protein as far as those producers are concerned.”Culp says many consumers have been looking to get their pork or beef directly from the farm. While that’s a good thing to hear, smaller processors are having a hard time keeping up with the demand.“We’re still way behind on people wanting a hog or half a beef and that’s because of the back up at those small mom and pop locker plants. There aren’t that many of those in Indiana and that’s been a problem. They are just working seven days a week and have a hard time with labor situations, as you can imagine. So, that’s been a little bit of a slowdown, but we’re hearing now people are concerned that we may have a resurgence this fall and winter of COVID and so they’re trying to make sure they have their protein needs in their freezer. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some more panic buying this winter.” By Eric Pfeiffer – Aug 24, 2020 Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Pork Producers Caught Up From Backlog, Outlook Still Bleak Facebook Twitter Previous articleHow Should Hemp Production Be Regulated in Indiana?Next articleAn Update on the Indiana Pork Supply Chain on the HAT Tuesday Podcast Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more
