England Women’s squad announced for New Zealand test series

first_img Maggie Alphonsi charges through the White Fern defence the last time the two met in 2010The England Women’s squad to take on world champions New Zealand over three international tests later this month has been announced and it includes 16 survivors from last year’s Rugby World Cup campaign.England will take on their old rivals, the Black Ferns, over two weeks with the first test kicking off at Twickenham Stadium on November 26th, kick off 5pm following the Australia versus Barbarians clash. The women’s rugby giants will then meet again on November 29th and December 3rd at Esher RFC.The two sides haven’t met since the Rugby World Cup final 14 months ago when New Zealand just edged out the host nations 13-10 in a thrilling final in front of a record breaking crowd, denying England their chance to lift the world cup crown again.After a two test series defeat to France last week for a young England side Head Coach Gary Street has welcomed back Margaret Alphonsi, Rebecca Essex, Sophie Hemming, Katy McLean, Danielle Waterman, Alice Richardson and Claire Purdy to the squad. At the same time, some strong performances for England’s five newly capped players in France has seen Hannah Gallagher and Alexandra Matthews, who scored on her debut, also get the nod into the squad.Street said: “Barring a handful of injuries I have been able to select the core squad from last year’s Rugby World Cup. This means we have a lot of experience in the side as well as a lot of potential through our younger players. We have got some exciting new caps in Alexandra Matthews and Hannah Gallagher who did an excellent job against France and certainly did enough to cement their place in this squad.“I am sure for our experienced players there is the matter of unfinished business against New Zealand. In the world cup final we didn’t play to our potential and I know the players will want to put that right against New Zealand in our first game at Twickenham Stadium.”England head into the series on the back of a winning Six Nations and Nations Cup campaign while New Zealand have not played an international test match since being crowned world champions in 2010. Street, however, is not expecting anything less that another world class performance from the Black Ferns. Tickets for the game at Twickenham on November 26th are available from Ticketmaster.co.uk and group booking are available from the RFU by calling 0871 22 22 017, option 6. Prices range from £65 to £35.

Sam Warburton says he’s not scared of facing the New Zealand Haka

first_imgThursday May 21, 2015 Sam Warburton says he’s not scared of facing the New Zealand Haka Wales skipper Sam Warburton made an appearance on the new season of The Clare Balding Show, and amongst other things, spoke about how he doesn’t find the All Blacks Haka scary. Just as he starts to get a bit ahead of himself, he makes sure to point out that his team haven’t beaten them in 50-odd years.It’s a funny, candid clip, and shows the self-confidence he has that has led him to lead not only Wales, but the British & Irish Lions too. He also spoke about George North and concussion, the Rugby World Cup, and a few other interesting topics. See the full chat tonight (Thurs 21st) on BT Sport 1 at 8pm & on BBC 2 at 10pm On George North and concussion: “I think the press have done a fantastic job on the concussion. I remember in the World Cup when I got red carded for the tip tackle, for two years all the talk was about tip tackles and how dangerous it was and now the media is focused on concussion, but concussion’s been going on for quite a long time.“Well it’s always been happening in rugby so I think it’s been blown out of proportion a bit, what’s been going on with George, and Mike Brown from England as well has suffered.“They have obviously had bad concussions but I think the first thing you’ve got to do is put the safety of the player first but I’m sure George will be back playing rugby, he’s a world-class player and will be back at the top in no time. It’s just making sure he manages this time, this acute phase after the injury, well but he’ll be back playing and be fine.“I think the concussion protocols now are a lot stricter than they used to be.  When I was first playing, only five, six, seven years ago, players would have a concussion and they’d be straight back playing the next game but now if you have a concussion it’s minimum two weeks, there’s loads of medical procedures you have to do before you can return to play. “I think in George’s case he has just been extremely unlucky that he’s got… some of them don’t even look like a big collision, he’s been involved in much bigger collisions but if you get caught on the button in the right place, then you are knocked out so I think it’s a combination of bad luck as well.”  On the Rugby World Cup: “Oh it will be awesome. We are in the pool of death as people call it, we’ve got Australia, England, Fiji and Uruguay so it is an unbelievably tough pool so it is very hard to look much further than the group stage, that’s going to take as much effort to get out of the group as win a World Cup probably, we’ll come up against two top quality sides so yes, it’s going to be amazing, I’m really, really excited for it.” See the full chat tonight on BT Sport 1 at 8pm & on BBC 2 at 10pm. It will also be repeated on BT Sport 1 Fri at 10:30am, Sat 12pm, Sun 22:30pm, & BT Sport 2 on Fri at 19:30pmADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The house, built in the 1940s, when Grandfather Martinho returned from Brazil, received a new family, the new owner is an interior designer who returns from the city to his small village TOURO, situated in the interior of Portugal. Located at 800 meters of altitude, the village has a thousand residents. In the village, in a small alley, is the house of Grandfather Martinho, 2 adjoining buildings with an annex, built in stone. The river, the Covo, the place and the belonging are better understood in the house of Grandfather, our first work. The House of Grandfather Martinho represents everything we believe in, life, individuality within the village, the granite that sustains protection.Save this picture!© João MorgadoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© João MorgadoIt was also a challenge, joining the various arts, the many knowledge, combining works, performing harmonies. Bricklayer, carpenter, and plumber. Constructor, painter, and electrician. All orchestrated in the baton of interior design, distinct tasks, gathered in the same goal, enable a comfortable life for two adults and two children. The House of grandfather Martinho was recovered respecting the place, the moth and the materials. Two granite floors, with windows that open to the street and the mountains, two rooms foreseeing the future, the chickens that run through the courtyards. A house filled with memories and curiosities, full of future and modernity.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe main block, the house where the grandfather lived, welcomes the habitational space, divided by two floors, with 55m2 each. The ground floor, formerly the place for the animals, gave way to the living room and kitchen, divided by a central box of oak wood, which houses the staircase and sanitary facilities. The upper floor gives way to 2 rooms with their sanitary facilities. The contiguous building where grandfather kept the cereals and the wine kite will be transformed into a small studio, enabling the owner, who is a designer, to develop work. The exterior was preserved to the fullest, respecting the origin and the memory and the surroundings.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe thick stone walls are filled in the spans by thin, white-colored boxes, revealing the interior and conferring the lightness and balance of this stacked stone heap. The grille of the wrought-iron porch has been restored. The roof frame has been restored taking advantage of the original structure of chestnut wood, the Marseille tile has been replaced. Inside, light colors and minimalist language contribute to maximizing the boundaries constructed and visually clear the space that itself is already quite reduced. The decoration of neutral colors with notes of moss color, refer to the surrounding nature, integrating the belonging and values in which we believe.Save this picture!© João MorgadoNext to it, an annex houses the garage and technical areas. Which is already a junction of various clones, small buildings, that kept hay for the animals to eat. Where it was so intentional to preserve the historical essence was in this attached volume, rebuilt with a contemporary intervention, which was added to the building, in the form of the inverted cover that gives way to a terrace overlooking the Nave’s mountain range. The detail of the illuminated tear, which separates the stone masonry from the flat cover, gives it the modern touch, surprising the look. Save this picture!© João MorgadoWe have maintained the traditional appearance, inspired by previous generations, and conjugating the comfort of modern life, renewing space, keeping a memory. Functionalized the space, the House maintains its original character, with new solutions, in old principles. Cement floor, wide walls, granite and above all lots of light. A house facing the street, structured by the importance of the village, integrated into the surrounding houses, observing and living with this place, simplicity, deeply articulated with the space, the streets and the built set. All inserted, harmoniously, in the geography of the place.Save this picture!© João MorgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessWhy Should We Invest in Mitigation Instead of Reconstruction?

Boschini Jr. announced the hire of Jeremiah Donati as the Horned Frogs’ new director of intercollegiate athletics. Donati replaces former TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte moved to the University of Texas after eight years with the Horned Frogs.“Today I am delighted to name Jeremiah Donati to this new role,” Boschini said. “I’m excited to see what we can achieve under his leadership.”Boschini went with an internal promotion in choosing Donati who had been an associate vice chancellor and associate athletics director for development since 2013. He was promoted to Deputy Athletics Director in August of 2016 after arriving on campus in 2011 with his first role at TCU being the Executive Director of Frog Club, the booster organization for the university. He was key in the final stages of fundraising for the $164 million rebuild of Amon G. Carter Stadium in addition to being the point person for the $72 million renovations of Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena, Lupton Stadium upgrades and other improvements to practice facilities, locker rooms and athletic lounges.“From the moment I set foot on campus almost seven years ago I knew immediately that the TCU community was very special and I feel incredibly blessed and humbled to be appointed to the position of director of intercollegiate athletics,” Donati said. “I look forward to working with my incredible team to collectively continue the momentum we have at TCU.”Boschini spoke glowingly of Donati’s past work for TCU. “First and only choice just because I’ve watched him over the past five or six years, and I’ve seen him grow and develop the skills necessary to do the jobs,” Boschini said. “He’s a great people-person, he knows athletics, he’s a good fundraiser and friend-raiser.”Donati said over the last two or three weeks that other Power Five schools contacted him about their athletic director vacancies, but he didn’t seriously consider any of them.“It’d be really silly to want to look elsewhere,” Donati said. “The fact that I know the staff so well, the fact that I know the donors so well, it’s an easy fit — at least from my end. It’s something I was going to fight for.”The hire of Donati also came with a stamp of approval from the coaches he now leads.“They were grooming him to be an AD,” TCU men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon said. “It came a little bit quicker than maybe we thought, but it’s better than losing momentum. You have a guy in place that everybody looks at and respects and considers an athletic director.”TCU baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle said he believes the commitment to his program will only continue to grow under Donati.“That’s the great thing about Jeremiah is he’s more than capable and qualified,” Schlossnagle said. “He’s been here, and he’s seen from a college baseball standpoint what’s possible and how we’ve elevated our program.”Even with Dixon, Schlossnagle, and TCU football head coach Gary Patterson all signed to long-term deals, Donati looks to improve his relationship with the Horned Frogs’ Big Three.“I may technically be their boss, but I don’t see it that way,” Donati said. “I see my job is to serve them and if I do that then they’ll be successful and they’ll be happy.Down to Business“The first thing I’m going to do is listen to our coaches, student-athletes, staff, our donors, and we’re going to figure out how to keep providing resources to keep them successful,” Donati said. “Expectations have not and will not change for this athletic department, and those expectations are four things: Provide our student-athletes with a world-class experience, challenge them to be responsible citizens and leaders, prepare them to graduate, and give them everything necessary to win championships here, conference and national.”The first action-item on his list is the newest football stadium renovation started recently under Del Conte.“The top priority is to complete the east side expansion of Amon G. Carter Stadium because that project is absolutely critical for momentum, for our future, and I’m 100 percent committed to it,” Donati said. “It’s a project that goes beyond TCU football, and it’s a project that we need to get delivered on time. That’s going to send a loud message that we’re committed to football, committed to this conference, and it falls perfectly in line with the Chancellor’s goals.”While Donati wants to continue those ideals, Boschini is also looking forward to how Donati will change things.“I think Jeremiah is different than Chris in a lot of ways,” Boschini said. “I think Jeremiah is more process-oriented, and I think he’ll bring that flavor to the staff that we didn’t have before. Everyone brings a bit of their own flavor.”Donati has already thought of one way he’ll break from the habits of his predecessor.“I probably won’t be as avid of a tweeter, I used to tease him [Del Conte] mercilessly about that,” Donati said. “It remains to be seen, but it’s coming. I have a lot of purple ties, not as many as Chris but a lot.”Donati also went out of his way to thank his predecessor.“I want to thank Chris Del Conte,” Donati said. “He brought me to TCU and made me a Horned Frog. He believed in me, trusted me, and he’s an unbelievable friend to me.”Del Conte also left one last thing for his protégé. Donati said that Del Conte gifted him all his purple ties at his press conference in Austin, but Chancellor Boschini wasn’t going to let that slide completely.“Stand in line,” Boschini exclaimed. Donati joked that he would pass them out after his press conference. While Donati showcased his sense of humor, he also concluded his introduction with focus.“I’m eager to get started,” Donati said.

State watchdog seizes TV broadcast equipment, then is target of grenade attack

first_img VenezuelaAmericas August 25, 2020 Find out more News Organisation Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives Reporters Without Borders today condemned both the confiscation by the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) of live broadcast equipment on 3 October from one of Venezuela’s leading TV stations, the 24-hour news channel Globovisión, and a grenade attack on Conatel headquarters a few hours later.”These two events are extremely worrying and show the fragility of press freedom in Venezuela as it approaches an electoral period,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said.In a letter to infrastructure minister Diosdado Cabello, who is responsible for Conatel, Ménard noted his claim that the equipment was not seized because of the content of Globovisión’s broadcasts. If this is the case, Ménard said, “then it is not the station’s content that should be punished.”Ménard added: “Without taking a position on the violations allegedly committed by Globovisión, our organisation can only condemn a decision which considerably limits a TV station’s ability to report the news.”The organisation also asked state prosecutor Isaias Rodríguez to keep it informed on progress in the investigation into the grenade attack on Conatel on the night of 3 October. “Reporters Without Borders has often condemned Conatel’s decisions as a danger to press freedom, but it cannot accept the use of violence to silence either news media or a state agency,” it said. The dishes and antennae removed by Conatel officials from Globovisión’s roof and from two hill-top sites above Caracas on 3 October allowed the TV station to carry live broadcasts from outside locations. Conatel director Alvis Lezama said the equipment was taken because of indications that Globovisión was using unauthorised frequencies. Cabello, the infrastructure minister, said: “This is an administrative procedure. Globovisión is still able to function. We have not touched the programme content.” President Hugo Chávez for his part said: “The permissive Chávez is over. We are and will continue to be vigilant as regards any excesses, especially by the news media, and we will apply the law whenever necessary.”Globovisión director Alberto Federico Ravell called it “an attack on freedom of expression” and said that, as the station could no longer cover what was happening on the streets, it was now operating at only half capacity. The seizure was a step towards sanctioning other TV stations critical of the president, he added. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has called for the measure to be suspended and for the equipment to be returned pending resolution of the complaint.The grenade attack on Conatel headquarters during the night of 3 October caused damage but no injuries. Information minister Jesse Chacón, a former Conatel director, said: “It was two men on a white motorcycle who threw the grenade and then fled.” Chacón said it was a response to Conatel’s confiscation of Globovisión’s equipment. Before the grenade attack, there had been a violent protest outside Conatel which police dispersed.Globovisión and the other three most important commercial TV stations – RCTV, Televén and Venevisión – have been dubbed the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” by President Chávez because of their criticism of his government. In January and February, they and a regional channel, Televisión Regional de Táchira (TRT), were told they are the subject of an administrative investigation because of their coverage of the opposition general strike in December 2002 and January 2003. The infrastructure minister will have the final say, and depending on his decision, they could be fined, their programmes could be suspended, or their licences could be rescinded.Meanwhile, from 31 October to 3 November, the opposition intends to try to collect more than 2 million signatures to a petition for a referendum to get President Chávez to stand down.

Webster’s owners Meredith and Michael Miller received the recognition during the Annual Small Business of Year Luncheon organized by the California Small Business Association.When it comes to a small business making a positive impact in the community, you couldn’t find anyone better than Webster’s Community Pharmacy,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden.Webster’s employs 25 people, many of whom live in Altadena, and strives to support other businesses in the community such as local printers, graphic designers and even produce vendors. The award also recognizes Webster’s Pharmacy’s involvement in civic affairs and local organizations such as Altadena Heritage, the Altadena Historical Society, and Young and Healthy, as well as numerous non-profits and schools.Nineteen small businesses from throughout the 41st Assembly District were nominated this year by the community. Past recipients of the recognition reviewed the nominations, provided feedback, rankings, and recommendations for the Assemblymember.“Many businesses have opened and closed during my 36 years in Pasadena and Altadena but the true and sustaining constant in Altadena has always been Webster’s Community Pharmacy,” said Robin Salzer, owner of Robin’s BBQ and the 2016 Small Business of the Year recipient from Assemblymember Holden. “Webster’s has always given back to the community and the scholarship programs that they have offered speaks volumes of this commitment.” EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS HerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Ways To Get Into Shape You’ve Never Tried BeforeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAt 9 Years Old, This Young Girl Dazzled The World Of FashionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty12 Most Breathtaking Trends In Fashion HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeauty First Heatwave Expected Next Week Business News Community News 3 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Subscribe faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimeslast_img read more
