England Bid Goodbye To Genki Okoshi

first_img Expand 2019 Rugby World Cup Final: England 12-32 South Africa England Bid Goodbye To Genki OkoshiFor the past few weeks at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, England head-coach Eddie Jones has been using his past experiences and connections with Suntory Sungoliath to mix up his training sessions. He has been bringing in several of their players to give the English something different to train against and one man who has been there throughout is Genki Okoshi.Well after their final training session the England players bid farewell to what appears to be a good luck charm in Genki, by gifting him a shirt signed by the team as you can see below. The Suntory Sungoliath scrum-half was helping the English in their training sessions. Remember the last time England and South Africa… When is the biggest match in rugby union… When Is The Rugby World Cup Final? A storied rivalry, we take a look at… Five Of The Best England v South Africa Matches Expand South Africa were crowned world champions for the… Elliot Daly said;”It has been because we have had a few niggles and it’s been good to have a full XV to train against. (Scrumhalf) Genki (Okoshi) has been our boy. He has been with us probably the most amount of time. You can just see how excited they are to come and train. It is slightly different as well training against people that you don’t train against every day, it makes you concentrate a bit more in training, definitely.” Five Of The Best England v South Africa Matchescenter_img Billy Vunipola said; “It’s nice to have different people and different energy levels. We have had a few bumps and knocks but to have people like Genki in, not just to help with training but with the emotions of the group has been great. I think we have named-dropped them enough but he’s a good lad.” When Is The Rugby World Cup Final?

Previously South Africa emerged victorious in 2007 but Eddie Jones and defence coach John Mitchell are preparing for anything the Springboks throw at them.“They play in a particular way, but you must always be prepared for anything that comes at us. They have a very clever (No.) 9, who is sharp,” Mitchell said.“Polly (flyhalf Handre Pollard) is in really, really good form. They have four second-rowers who love winning the gain line. They have their own armory. It’s exciting. Last week (against New Zealand), we dealt with a lot of speed, a lot of footwork. This week they are certainly going to be a team that is more direct.”No doubt the training sessions England have had with players like Genki have allowed them to but their best preparations into fruition.Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.

Maiorca Residential Building / Lourenço | Sarmento

first_img Year:  Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Apartments Maiorca Residential Building / Lourenço | Sarmento Brazil Save this picture!+ 26 Share CopyApartments•Juiz de Fora, Brazil 2007 Text description provided by the architects. Maiorca is a residential building designed by Lourenço | Sarmento Arquitetos in the city of Juiz de Fora, Brazil, formed by five units of proximally 260 sqm and a duplex penthouse, situated in a high class residential area of the city.Save this picture!The conceptual process aimed to create an integrated unity by the articulation of the different components, understanding the building as a volume and not as independent facades. That intention leads to a composition of added regular elements, represented by the cantilevered verandas, tied up together by the large gable that begins as a pergola and ends crowing the entire complex. Beyond this aesthetical function this frame gives protection and privacy to the users from the views of the other surrounding buildings and from the strength of the undesirable sun. Those elements are attached in the more massive volume of the staircase that anchors the whole. Save this picture!The glass in the curtain wall and in the spider system of the hall, added to the wood vertical panels, works as negatives in the contrast between the filled and unfilled surfaces of the composition of folded panels and volumes. Save this picture!Units had their layout idealized focusing on optimizing the pursued characteristics of the three zones of use – social, service and private – opening the living areas to the contact with the street and the views of the surroundings and locating the rooms in the rear area, much quieter and facing the morning sun. The kitchen and laundry are located in the middle, articulating those two zones. The openness of the social areas and the integration between living and the veranda were also an important issue in this process, reached by the special attention given to the structural system adopted – ribbed slab and the external location of the pillars – and to the detailing of the sliding doors of the facade that hides completely behinds a providential wall with their trail inlaid in the floor, free of unevenness between interior and exterior.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessSports Park Stozice / SADAR + VUGA, with KSS + MYSI + OFISArticlesTina Manis Associates selected to design Art Fund PavillionArticlesProject locationAddress:Juiz de Fora – Minas Gerais, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

Candidates express mixed reactions to dispute

first_img Foolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionSummer Spaghetti SaladPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Pinterest Facebook Twitter Incumbent Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, left; and challenger Mike Canon, R-Midland. Not pictured, challenger Victor Leal, R-Amarillo. Candidates in the District 31 Texas Senate race, two of whom are backed by Texas Right to Life, had mixed reactions to the dispute between Texas Right to Life and the Catholic bishops who have severed ties with the organization.The Austin American-Statesman recently reported that according to a written directive, Texas Right to Life has “engaged in misleading attacks against political candidates, lied about the Catholic Church’s position on legislation at the state Capitol and opposed church-supported bills by arguing that they don’t go far enough to limit abortions.”Those running for the District 31 spot are incumbent Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, and challengers Mike Canon, R-Midland, and Victor Leal, R-Amarillo. The primary is Tuesday and early voting ends Friday.Texas Right to Life has endorsed Canon and Leal.“I’m a pro-life Catholic who’s deeply committed to my faith. However, I question the timing of the bishops on this statement. I’m also leery when bishops wade into the political arena. It was the bishops who cooperated with the Obama administration that got us the disaster that is Obamacare,” Leal said.The Texas Right to Life PAC general purpose committee campaign finance support lists Seliger as a candidate it opposes, although he was endorsed by Texas Alliance for Life and Life PAC.“Texas Right to Life gave me a 100 percent rating and they still are contributing money against me and attacking me. It does seem there is something wrong with this picture. You would have to look at their donors to see if there are any extraordinarily large contributors who might persuade them to attack someone who is 100 percent pro-life, even by their own rating system. Nobody is more definitively pro-life than the Catholic bishops. When a group presumes they are somehow more authoritative, there must be another agenda,” Seliger said.Michael Sis, bishop of the Diocese of San Angelo said Wednesday that a notice sent to “our priests and our parishes. It was an internal message. It was not a press release.”“I don’t want to give the impression that the church is endorsing one candidate or another, or attempting to sway an election, because that is not our role. There are many pro-life candidates in our state, both incumbents and challengers. The Catholic bishops of Texas seek to collaborate and find common ground with all pro-life organizations and there’s a need for greater unity in the movement,” Sis said.“It’s my hope that all pro-life organizations will work together in the future. We’re in a long-term effort to build a culture of life,” he added.Leal said he is honored by the endorsement and support of Texas Right to Life.“And I look forward to defending life from conception to natural death when I’m in the senate,” he said.Leal said Texas Right to Life has contributed to his campaign and endorsed him, but he has not received any endorsement or financial backing from Empower Texans PAC (political action committee) or the Texas Home School Coalition PAC.The Teach the Vote website from the Association of Texas Professional Educators contend that Texas Right to Life, Empower Texans and the Texas Home School Coalition get contributions from many of the same people.Texas Ethics Commission campaign finance reports for Jan. 26 through Feb. 24 show that Texas Right to Life contributed $20,000 each to Leal and Canon.Empower Texans backs Canon and Texas Home School Coalition has endorsed Canon, their websites stated. Canon has total political contributions of $458,035. Of that, Empower Texans has contributed $349,780, the campaign finance report shows.Canon also received $3,000 from Texas Home School Coalition PAC.The Texas Ethics Commission website says “unless you are contributing to a judge, judicial candidate, or specific-purpose political committee supporting or opposing a judge or judicial candidate, there are no contribution limits under state law.”Canon said he does not know what precipitated the bishops’ decision, so it’s difficult to comment on it.“I do believe both the bishops and Texas Right to Life want to do good things, both working for the cause for life. I hope that the two organizations would be able to reconcile their differences and work in a unified pro-life effort,” Canon said.If You GoJoint Primary Election March 6, 2018First day of early voting: Feb. 20.Last day of early voting: March 2.Election Day: March 6.

Hawaii couple arrested after boarding flight knowing they had COVID-19: Health officials

first_imgKaua‘i Police DepartmentBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A Hawaii couple has been arrested after they boarded a flight home while allegedly knowing they had COVID-19.Wesley Moribe and Courtney Peterson were flying home to Lihue Airport in Kauai from San Francisco when it was discovered they receive a positive result in a pre-travel test for the virus, according to a statement from the Kauai Department of Health. They have been arrested and charged with second-degree reckless endangerment.Close contacts are being identified, directed to quarantine and being offered testing, the department said.The couple participated in the Safe Travels program, a mandatory travel and health form in the state of Hawaii.Hawaii Gov. David Ige approved a temporary moratorium of the Safe Travels program last Friday to return to a mandatory 14-day quarantine, which went into effect on Wednesday and applies to all incoming travelers, including mainland, inter-island residents and visitors.The state of Hawaii has seen several incidents since the start of the pandemic in which residents and visitors have tried to skirt local COVID laws, officials said.Kauai Mayor Derek Kawakami described a Florida man who tried to bypass the state’s traveler quarantine in April as a “covidiot” after the intoxicated man arrived on the island without having proof of accommodations.In May, a New York City man spent part of his vacation in an Oahu jail after he allegedly broke quarantine rules and traveled to several places using public transportation.A 20-year-old woman was arrested in Honolulu in July after she was discovered dancing in a store and dining out while she was supposed to be obeying the traveler quarantine.In August, a Hawaii teacher was also arrested for violating the traveler quarantine after he returned to Honolulu from Florida and was spotted by an acquaintance at a post office days later.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Unison vote may lead to Euro-style strike action

first_imgUnison vote may lead to Euro-style strike actionOn 24 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. The UK’s biggest union took a step closer to continental-style collectiveindustrial action, after its members voted in favour of changes to its nationalpolicy. Unison, which represents more than 1.3 million workers, overwhelminglypassed the amendments, which could lead to local government, NHS and teachingstaff striking simultaneously. The vote, at its annual conference in Brighton last week, means the union willnow be able to co-ordinate action across different parts of the public sector,with a more harmonised approach to pay bargaining and strike action. A Unison spokesperson said the motion would mean a more consistent andcoherent approach to agreements and industrial action. “It will ensure one sector doesn’t get left behind, but will also allowus to make the most of our broad base. If we weren’t getting any movement onpay claims in different sectors, we could then have action across them,”he said. Unison’s general secretary, Dave Prentis, warned the Government that it muststart to back public sector reforms with more investment, or face theconsequences. “If the local government pay commission is not funded, if the reformsin schools are not funded, if Agenda for Change is not funded, then we willtake strike action again,” he said. However, the union’s stance was criticised by the Chartered Institute ofPersonnel and Development for being too antagonistic and potentially damaging. Mike Emmott, the institute’s employee relations expert, said it raised thestakes and could cause serious divisions. “Assuming they get co-ordinatedaction, it would precipitate further gaps between the Government and theunions. “It’s born from a loss of patience and would be bad for the generalpublic and the unions because, as we saw in the fire dispute, no governmentwanting to be re-elected could back down,” he said.

Home Burglar Apprehended Leaving Old Petersburg Place Early Sunday Morning

first_imgOn Sunday, September 18, 2016 at 5:14am the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office responded to an address on Greendale Drive within Old Petersburg Place subdivision in reference to suspicious circumstances.A witness reported to 911 that a skinny white male, wearing no shirt and suspenders, was removing items from a neighbor’s residence. The unidentified male was placing the items into the bed of a white Chevrolet truck with a Kentucky license plate. A direction of travel was given to 911 by the witness as the vehicle left the area.A sheriff’s deputy was nearby and observed the truck hauling numerous items as it traveled eastbound on Mt. Pleasant Road. A traffic stop was initiated and contact was made with the driver and sole occupant of the truck. Deputies could plainly see the bed of the truck overloaded with items to the point that the driver could not see out of the rear window.The driver was identified as Mr. Stephen T. Hape. Mr. Hape provided a fabricated explanation to deputies about his business at the residence. Mr. Hape claimed that he had been instructed by his employer to remove items from the residence for the purpose of transporting them to a nearby landfill. Deputies were able to disprove Mr. Hape’s explanation by speaking to the home owner and Mr. Hape’s employer.The homeowner responded to the traffic stop and positively identified all of the items in Mr. Hape’s truck. When the items were transported back to their origin, the homeowner discovered that Mr. Hape had vandalized numerous items while inside the residence.  Mr. Hape had intentionally clogged drains and left water running, which caused significant water damage to the upstairs and downstairs of the residence. Mr. Hape had also carved profanities into a dishwasher.  Mr. Hape had also damaged several items while he removed them from the home.During a search of Mr. Hape’s truck, deputies located narcotic paraphernalia and several Vyvanse capsules. Vyvanse is a schedule II controlled substance that Mr. Hape did not have a prescription for.Mr. Hape was transported to Vanderburgh County Jail, where he was booked on a multiple charges.ARRESTED:Stephen Trey Hape (pictured above), 27, of Henderson, Kentucky. Burglary as a  Level 4 Felony, Theft as a Level 6 Felony, Criminal Mischief as a Class A Misdemeanor, Possession of a Controlled Substance as a Class A Misdemeanor.

Pi Day: 314 Runners for 3.14-Mile Race on 3/14?

first_imgIn a wonkish tribute to the mathematical constant and an effort to integrate Ocean City schools and the community, the local school district will sponsor a 3.14-mile run to celebrate world Pi Day.Ocean City Primary School teachers Carrie Merritt and Erin Porter share plans for Pi Day events with the Ocean City Board of Education.Race organizers are hoping to attract 314 runners for the 3.14-mile race Saturday, March 14, on the Ocean City Boardwalk.Pi represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. It’s practical in solving any sort of problem involving circles, and as most young students know, the number is a bit “irrational” — it’s decimal calculation goes on forever without repeating itself.The first 10 digits — 3.141592653 — are represented by the time and date of the run: 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 a.m. (Fun fact: the New York Times crossword puzzle recently featured a nifty mnemonic to remember the first eight digits: “How I Wish I Could Calculate Pie Easily.” Just count the letters of each word in the quote.)The event also includes a children’s run/walk, which is, of course, a 314-yard dash. That event is open to 10-and-unders and goes off at 10:36 a.m. on March 14.The 5K race starts at the Ocean City Primary School (500 block of West Avenue) and finishes on the boardwalk near the high school. The kids’ race will be on the boardwalk at Sixth Street.Registration fee is $10 for adults and $5 for students.A printable application form is attached at the bottom of this story and can be mailed or dropped off at the Primary School.Pre-registration must be received by March 6, but race-day registration will be available.Post-race activities include: pie-a-teacher, pie-eating contests, pizza-pie tossing, hula hooping and a small health fair. Entertainment, snacks and other refreshments will be provided.The event is co-sponsored by the Ocean City Educators Association (OCEA).Primary school teachers Carrie Merritt and Erin Porter are helping to organize the event, and they told the Ocean City Board of Education last week that they had originally anticipated about 100 runners. But 150 already are registered, and they’re now shooting for an even “pi” of 314.Download (PDF, 680KB)last_img read more
