Lions 2017: How far late call-ups may have to travel

first_imgWe know there will be injuries and that replacements will be called up for the British & Irish Lions in New Zealand. We look at how far those on Home Nations tours may have to travel if they get the call… For those who are wondering – catch it sweet, and you can get from Heathrow to Auckland in a shade over 24 hours.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Unhappy with some of the selections in the British & Irish Lions squad? Rather see one of the other Home Nations heroes picked instead? Well do not despair yet, as injuries and late call-ups inevitably happen – we showed as much with this piece on Lions replacements through the years.Okay we expect there to be plenty new faces on the tour before it’s end in July, but where could these call-ups come from? It is not the most important factor, but in the past it can be said that having a close proximity to the tour party is a plus. So here’s a look at where the home nations will be at certain points of the summer.Tracking Pumas: England will be in Argentina on tourNone of the home nations have a match on foreign soil until 10 June, but by that stage England will be in Argentina (San Juan – over 46 hours by plane from Auckland at best) and Ireland in the US (New Jersey – but a shade over 20 hours by plane, via JFK Airport). Scotland will be in Singapore (just under a ten-hour flight to Auckland). The Lions will be on the south island at this point, ahead of their fixtures against the Crusaders in Christchurch on 10 June, then the Highlanders in Dunedin on 13 June.By the next week Wales will be in New Zealand for a Test against Tonga on 16 June, held in Pukekohe just south of Auckland (this match will be played on the same day, in the same venue as the All Blacks face Samoa, so expect Lions coaches to be present). That Test is just 24 hours before the Lions face New Zealand Maori in Rotorua – the towns of Pukekohe and Rotorua are a two hour and 20 minute drive apart. By this point Ireland will be in Japan (Shizuoka on the Honshu island – where after a three hour or so trip to Tokyo it could take just over ten hours to get to Auckland) and Scotland will be facing the Wallabies in Sydney (around three hours away from Auckland by plane). England will be in Santa Fe (30+ hours by plane to Auckland).Not far away: Apia, capital of Samoa, will host Wales in JuneA week later Wales will be facing Samoa in Apia (just over four hours from Auckland by plane), Scotland will be up against Fiji in Suva (just over 3 hours from Auckland), and Ireland have Japan in Tokyo (just over ten and a half hours if you get a non-stop flight). By this stage, England will be done and after these fixtures so will the other Home Nations. That’s when we get into the territory of players taking personal holiday…center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Late call: Shane Williams arrives in Sydney as a Lions call-up in 2013 last_img read more

Most everything used to create the hats is donated. Each hat can take forty five minutes to one hour to make so each hat is a real bargain at $3.00 each.The Club started making these hats about six years ago and no one can remember where the idea or design came from.

The project was to create a new living space in place of an existing old house where a couple has kept their country life. The main concern for the project was that introducing a unifying space of programs and nature while preserving the garden and site surroundings adorned by the couple over a long period of time. The new house is designed as a rural house which all elements such as living space, office and spacious log storage(indispensable for country house) permeate each other without losing their own independency.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonThe site has a spectacular view to the east, yet it loses the sunlight relatively early due to the mountains in the south. Therefore, in response to these factors, the house is arranged to make a shape so that not only the whole space can be exposed to the sunlight as much as possible, but also the house can exploit a good view toward the east with a small pond near the village as well as the surrounding mountains. The Y shape helps to connect the house, the office and the storage and also secures a separated outdoor space for each space as it works as an intermediate space projecting toward two different directions.Save this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!Plan 2The converging point of Y, the heart of the house is arranged after a delicate research on views to all directions from the point. It embraces the living area and provides an immersive spatial narrative which is rendered by a communication between the main floored room (Daecheongmaru) and the outside void garden.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonSave this picture!© Joonhwan YoonThe architect asks himself a question whenever he designs a house; ‘what do we need most to create an affluent life in terms of space?’, and he believes the simplest answer is Korean style space where native Koreans have belonged until now. After various experimentations on modernization of Korean space, the architect has found out that diverse communications with outdoor space is the key to lead an abundant life in country houses. Therefore, in this project, many outdoor gardens such as upper garden, entrance garden, void garden, service garden, sky garden, crocks garden are produced. And then a number of modernized Korean style floored areas such as Daecheongmaru, Numaru and Toenmaru are designed to promote communication between the inside and those outside gardens.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonEspecially the Sarangbang located in the east work as a barrier against the direct sunlight in the morning and also as secondary view point separated from the Daecheongmaru and the living area. The diagonal glass wall line of living room helps the livingroom to embrace the Daecheongmaru as it draws the landscape of inner garden and void garden deeply in to the inside, and also it helps the livingroom to become a cool lounge area in summer as it increases the speed of wind flows across the Daecheongmaru. All of these various spaces of the house will lead the client to an abundant life.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Sabae / Tetsuya Mizukami ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHilltop Residence / Miró Rivera ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Y-House / ON Architects 2014 Area:  281 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: ON Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeON ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUlsanSouth KoreaPublished on September 01, 2016Cite: “Y-House / ON Architects” 01 Sep 2016.

Lessons learned during pandemic could help sector grow back stronger

first_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via  628 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Bates Wells COVID-19 Lessons learned during pandemic could help sector grow back stronger One year on from UK lockdown, a report suggests the lessons learned could help the sector become more innovative, responsive and fit for purpose. Commissioned by the charity and non-profit specialist legal firm Bates Wells, ‘Positive Change: The outcomes of an unprecedented year’  looks at the pressures faced by the charity sector during pandemic, the solutions they have put in place to cope, and the opportunities for them to ‘build back better’.The report acknowledges that many voluntary organisations have suffered from the fall out of Covid-19, while demand for their services has been greater than ever, but also reflects the sector’s resilience in the face of these challenges, highlighting how it is building back better based on sector research and interviews with charity leaders and commentators. Advertisementcenter_img The report notes the success of digital fundraising during the pandemic, highlighting how, when social distancing put a halt on car washes and jumble sales, The Scout Association had to find a new way to help 500 of its hardest hit groups. Its #RaceRoundTheWorld was a virtual trip around the globe, raising over £350,000 through sponsorship and direct donations. Earlier in the year, the #HikeToTheMoon raised £700,000 through online sponsorship for a real hike of one mile or more.Commenting in the report, digital consultant Zoe Amar says:“It really shows that if you can come up with a really compelling digital fundraising proposition that speaks to your community, then people are still going to donate even in very cash-strapped times.”The report also draws attention to how the George Floyd’s death in the US in May 2020 set off a summer of protests around the world, building on the Black Lives Matter movement and calling for an end to widespread and institutional racism, and how in the UK, this gave further impetus to the Charity So White campaign.Asif Afridi, Deputy Chief Executive at Birmingham based equality charity brap, sees charities using external tensions around race to look at their own behaviour and comments:“There’s been a greater interest in exploring anti-racism, and how to respond to it both within organisations and outside.”2020 was also the year that much of the workforce moved from the meeting room to the Zoom room. For many charities, the report says, this was a steep learning curve, but virtual meetings are now core to the working day and to the work of the board. Meanwhile, some charities are giving up part or all of their rented space or divesting of property as more and more employees stay at home.Trustees faced a challenging 2020 too with challenging decisions such as layoffs, dipping into reserves, mergers or more collaborative working. The report notes here that boards that have gone through risk assessment and scenario planning are better equipped to support their organisations.The top five lessons to learn from the report:Financial resilience: Diversifying income is both a challenge and an opportunity for the sector. Charities need to assess their assets, explore new income generation options and review ways of working with local and central government.Diversity and inclusion: The sector lags behind others in its diversity work. Encouraging inclusive participation and recruiting a diversity of trustees are part of the journey.Digital strategy: The pandemic has highlighted decades of underinvestment. If you don’t know your Twitch from your Tiltify, find someone who does.Online working: A virtual and fragmented workforce demands that charities put more time and effort into communication with their employees.Partnerships and collaboration: Joint working and partnership have become the default way of working for the sector. Collaboration has supported the deployment of millions of volunteers and has enabled charities to be agile in responding to changing community needs.As the Covid-19 vaccination programme continues to roll out and the sector starts to get its head above water, the hope, Bates Wells says, is that it’s not back to business as usual but building back better.Thea Longley, Head of Charity & Social Enterprise Department at Bates Wells, said:“It feels as if the future will inevitably be different, and we need to be thoughtful about how we move forward. Although funding is likely to remain tough, there are still things to be positive about and we look forward to seeing the sector starting its journey to recovery.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 23 March 2021 | Newslast_img read more

Don’t Forget the Indiana Grown Beverages for Christmas

first_img SHARE Indiana Milk and wine for ChristmasGot the Indiana milk and Indiana wine ready for Christmas? Both have their place at Christmas time, and Hoosier-made wines make a great gift.This Christmas Eve American Dairy Association, Indiana wants to see pictures of those special milk and cookie preparations for Santa, according to general manager Deb Osza.“As we all know Santa drinks milk and you can follow our hashtag, #SantaDrinksMilk. We’re involved with dairy promotion with Santa in Dairyland at two of the biggest Simon malls in the state, and we’ll be awarding prizes. We want you to show us your milk and cookies and we’re going to have a lot of fun with that.”Someone who shares will win an iPad Air. And if you’re close enough to one of Indiana’s 71 wineries Jeanette Merritt with the Indiana Wine Grape Council suggests picking up a bottle to pair with that Christmas meal.“One of my favorite pairings for a honey glazed ham or a ham loaf that you’re having for one of your Christmas meals, is a dry rose. Chambourcin is a grape we grow a lot here in Indiana. It makes a red grape and many of our wineries, like French Lick and Mallow Run and Oliver Winery make a dry rose. So it’s a pink wine but it’s different than a pink zinfandel that people may be familiar with that comes in a box and you can buy in a grocery store. This would be a dry wine that would pair fantastically with a pork dish.”Merritt suggests the state signature wine, Traminette, a white wine, if you’re serving poultry. She thinks beef needs a red wine.“I think Chambourcin is another great option for a beef dish.”Gifts of Indiana wine are a nice touch at Christmas or New Year’s, and Merritt adds, “We don’t always have to worry about pairing it with food. I don’t want people to over think what they’re going to eat and drink, so if you’re taking a wine as a hostess gift it’s not necessarily something that person would have to open up at the table and share.”This year was a fruitful one for Indiana grape growers.

Chism Credits INFB Members for New Horizon Award at FB Annual…

first_img Facebook Twitter Chism Credits INFB Members for New Horizon Award at FB Annual Convention Indiana Farm Bureau was presented with a New Horizon Award in the best new program category by the American Farm Bureau Federation at the virtual AFBF Convention for their implementation of Indiana Farm Bureau Health Plans.INFB Second Vice President Isabella Chism says she can’t think of a better way to acknowledge the work of their members.“Although some of the planning, strategy, and listening behind the scenes was fully staff-reliant, the work would not have been done without our members. Had our members not shown up at the statehouse, had not called their representatives, we wouldn’t be here.”And members did fill the statehouse during hearings and votes on the healthcare legislation.“We had standing room only. We had them out in the hallway. Our members just showed up in droves and I appreciate that. That showed the value and the need for what we were doing for those healthcare plans. So far, we’re doing very well with those; we are meeting that need. So, that just confirms all the work that was spent on that.”The New Horizon Award is presented to state Farm Bureaus with the most innovative programs, and to recognize excellence in the implementation of outstanding member programs and membership achievements.In addition to the New Horizon Award, the Farm Bureau annual convention has been a good one for Chism. She was also elected to chair the Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee.
