It’s going to be a tough year ahead.”The chain is maintaining its forecast for full-year pre-tax profits of around £860m in the year ending 31 January. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

European Champions Cup player analysis: George North, Northampton Saints

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight For all of Warren Gatland‘s talk of building slowly towards the World Cup, clashes with Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and South Africa next month are extremely important for Wales. A run of no wins from 20 attempts against ‘big three’ opposition must stop. To have North in top form is a welcome boost.Thanks to BT Sport for the footage. You can purchase tickets to the European Champions Cup final here. George North is storming into stunning form just in time for Wales’ autumn Tests. We analyse his four-try haul for Northampton Saints in Saturday’s 34-6 thrashing of the Ospreyscenter_img One thing about George North that never fails to astonish – more striking even than the staggering raw materials of pace, power and prodigious finishing ability – is his age. The affable Wales phenomenon has not yet turned 23. Frankly, it seems ludicrous. He could quite conceivably terrorise defenders for another decade.Beast mode: North takes Israel Folau for a rideBefore getting too carried away, we must remember one crucial caveat. Careful management will be integral to the longevity of this astounding athlete. Jaw-dropping brilliance on the 2013 Lions tour to Australia propelled him into the rugby stratosphere. However, a subsequent summer move to Northampton Saints meant immediate immersion in the grind of an Aviva Premiership schedule – hardly a soft landing.Put simply, North spent most of last term looking spent. Sure, there were fantastic performances every now and then, but while Saints stormed to the domestic title, their rockstar wing appeared too physically and mentally exhausted to offer any concerted consistency.Looking back, we should not be too surprised. North’s 2012/3 campaign encompassed 2,370 minutes for club and country, finally wrapping up on July 6 in Sydney. At times, things must have been tortuous the next season. Fatigue can form a horrible type of claustrophobia. Essentially, North’s desire to impress and hit the ground running was confined by his own body.All that feels like ancient history now. Refreshed and replenished, North has been full of verve since September, resembling his true self – a devastating weapon – week in, week out. All Black Julian Savea is another fit to eat at the top table – and with 29 tries from 29 internationals he is evidently hungry. This pair of behemoths potentially go head-to-head at Millennium Stadium on November 22. The ground will shake.North will certainly be buoyant heading into Wales’ November itinerary. He signed off with a four-try haul last weekend in the European Champions Cup, condemning Ospreys to a 34-6 thumping. Having registered a 70-metre screamer against the Neath-Swansea region as recently as January, this was more of the same – an evening that stole the headlines. There is so much more than violent velocity to North’s Midas touch. Watch his first five-pointer, just 16 minutes in:At first glance, this is a straightforward walk-in, and North does eventually stroll over the line unopposed without even needing unmarked Jamie Elliott to his left. Still, this score would have delighted Jim Mallinder beyond mere aesthetics.Turnover ball and the transition between defence and attack is a hugely fertile source of tries in modern rugby, but a team must be cohesive to take advantage. This particular opening comes about from disruption. Lee Dickson harries at the base of the ruck and Tom Wood rushes through, hitting Ospreys scrum-half Rhys Webb in a burly tackle before getting to his feet and blasting over the ruck.Once possession is secured, the reaction is rapid and the awareness impressive. North himself demonstrates supreme poaching ability to realign in a dangerous position.He does this so quickly and accurately that although Stephen Myler‘s pass is a ‘stopper’, as shown by the above screenshot, the chance is not wasted. Counter-attack was the name of the game for number two on the half-hour:Kick-return is another area where communication and mutual understanding make life so much easier. The combination between North and opposite wing Ken Pisi completely confounds the Ospreys. Again though, it starts with sheer graft. North is 12 metres behind the ball as Elliott fields the visitors’ clearance and passes infield:Having worked hard to get back into the game as an option, North then assesses how he can link with Pisi. A support line is the foundation of any offload – though the passer is always showered with praise and air-time, he is dictated to by the angle a teammate takes. As Pisi drifts to the right, watch how North fades in behind before cutting left: By no means is North reinventing the wheel here. Rather, he is instinctively following the basic principals of finding space. Cutting against the grain, his speed and strength are too much for wrong-footed Ospreys defenders once Pisi’s pass is gathered.Only 14 minutes into the second period, the hat-trick was complete:The finish itself comes from pure power and a decent body position, low enough to ground the ball despite the triple challenge of Scott Baldwin, Tom Grabham and Webb. More interesting is how North comes to be at first receiver. Take note of where he was just one phase earlier:As pointed out earlier, North is not shy of unselfish yards. He scoots around on a 15-metre arc in time to receive Dickson’s flat pass and career towards the gainline:If there was plenty of unseen excellence about North’s first three tries then, the fourth and final score deserved its own box office:By any standard, this is stunning. The sheer amount of attributes needed for North to manufacture the opportunity and dot down almost defies belief. It is a one-man transition from defence to attack, starting with a fearsome display of upper body muscle to strip the ball from Ospreys replacement lock (yes, lock) Rynier Bernado:James Hook is another Welsh exponent of this skill, and often manages to rip the ball loose of attackers if their presentation of the ball in contact gets lax. For North to make a clean steal is something else altogether though, and foreshadows an electric try.Searing pace of course stands out, but the precision and timing of the grubber merits plaudits too. North carries with his head up, spots the space in behind but waits until the covering defender commits, turns his shoulders in and becomes flat-footed, therefore in a helpless position to turn and recover:From there, the afterburners go on to awesome effect.last_img read more

Six Nations and SANZAAR working on global calendar

first_imgNorthern and southern hemispheres looking to develop an aligned calendar “A further consultation process, in total transparency with unions, clubs and players, will commence as all parties work towards an aligned global calendar that can deliver a clear and coherent narrative.“The Nations together with other key stakeholders remain open to shape the options that have been developed in an effort to resolve an issue that has held the game back for many years and are committed to putting rugby on a progressive path.”Club-country clash: Harlequins played Bristol on the same weekend as England v Wales (Getty Images)World Rugby responded with a statement of their own, saying: “World Rugby welcomes commitment from the Six Nations and SANZAAR for closer collaboration to ensure a more harmonious global calendar for all stakeholders. “World Rugby has consistently supported and championed reform of the international calendar for the betterment of the sport as a whole, including all unions, international and club competition organisers, and players.“Within regular and productive discussions between stakeholders, World Rugby is working to ensure that any calendar outcome recognises the global nature of our sport, and therefore the competition needs of all nations at all levels.“Any proposed competition model must also prioritise player welfare considerations, the women’s game, and protect the funding model of the wider game which is driven by the growth in the value of Rugby World Cup. Try time: Anthony Watson scores against Wales in the Six Nations (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Six Nations and SANZAAR working on global calendarA ‘global season’ has long been rugby’s holy grail. Yet aligning the northern and southern hemisphere calendars, as well as ensuring fewer clashes with club fixtures, is a complicated task.However, the coronavirus pandemic appears to have sparked a spirit of negotiation between north and south, one that is particularly needed given the perilous financial situation many national unions and clubs find themselves in.WHAT’S INSIDE THE LATEST ISSUE OF RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE?A joint statement from the Six Nations and SANZAAR, which runs the Rugby Championship, talks about the two parties “working closely” and hoping to “eliminate self-interest”.Old rivals: Beauden Barrett clears against South Africa in the Rugby Championship (Getty Images)They have put forward a set of key principles that are underpinning discussions. They are:Significantly mitigate overlaps between club and country fixturesBetter aligned player release windows for players, stakeholders and competitionsImprove player welfareImprove narrative and competitiveness of international and domestic competitions around clear windowsDefine clear high-performance pathways for emerging nations through the delivery of an internationally more inclusive gameEvolve competition structures that are underpinned with enhanced commercial offeringsRestore public faith in the core values of rugby and showing strong collective leadership in the best interests of the game.Related: Mark Evans – “We are about to witness a total reset of the global game”All change: How will the likes of Fiji and Georgia fit into a new season structure? (Getty Images)There has already been talk of the Six Nations moving back a few weeks as well as back-to-back international windows in October and November, but could the Rugby Championship also move to a different time of year? How do the emerging nations fit into the season structure? The detail is always the hardest part to nail down.PRE-ORDER RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE’S 60TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE (JUL-20) HEREHere is the joint statement in full: “Following the World Rugby meetings in March this year, SANZAAR and the Six Nations (‘the Nations’) have been working closely over the lockdown period against a set of key principles between the parties, to develop and agree proposals for an aligned global calendar.“Even though there may be different preferences, from the outset the Nations have adopted a mindset that has sought to eliminate self-interest and recognise that the international and club game have shared mutual benefits that if approached and managed correctly can enable both to flourish. “World Rugby looks forward to further close collaboration with all parties to reach the best outcome for the global game. A decision on any adjustment to the current global calendar and its international release windows will need to be considered and taken by the World Rugby Council.” Can’t get to the shops?

On a small hill overlooking Kyoto city a suburban house for a young couple negotiates some tough ‘Historical’ design regulations. Many design points are pre-set. Therefore the house is conceived of as a simple container with private spaces lodged randomly within. But the randomness is orchestrated. Despite the external restrictions the fluidity of the interior void spaces and curved connecting stairways finally let the house feel very free.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoThere are three primary elements at work in this composition. The main external walls (running east/west), the private volumes (overlapping and bridging) and the resultant void space.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoThe main Living, Dining, Kitchen area on the first floor opens onto the main terrace facing the garden to the East allowing classical indoor/outdoor living, and the ceiling height in this area varies from 2.5m to 7.5m.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoThe two main bedrooms bridge the building and their North/South facing walls of glass allow the external cladding to continue into the rooms, (one white plaster, one black timber)Save this picture!section 02The bathroom on the second floor has a large internal window overlooking the garden to the East and the guest bedroom on the third floor pushes straight out to the West.

Appeal court confirms 10-year term for Narges Mohammadi

first_img Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Help by sharing this information IranMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses WomenViolenceImprisonedNobel Prize Anne Hidalgo et Shirin Ebadi Her lawyers received the news as her close colleague, 2003 Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi, and RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire were meeting yesterday with Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo.Mohammadi’s husband, Taghi Rahmani, told RSF that the court rejected her lawyers’ appeals and confirmed the combined 16-year sentence that a Tehran court, under the ministry of intelligence’s influence, imposed at the end of trial in April that was marked by irregularities.Detained since May 2015, Mohammadi will have to serve 10 of the 16 years under a law adopted in 2015, according to which anyone convicted on several criminal charges serves only the sentence corresponding to the most important charge.Mayor Hidalgo expressed concern yesterday about the fate of Mohammadi, who was awarded the City of Paris medal on 3 May as a journalist and prominent defender of women’s rights.Ebadi, whose latest book, “Until We Are Free,” has just been published in France, joined RSF in calling for Mohammadi’s release. “I condemn this sentence imposed by the Iranian judicial system as Narges’ only crime is to be a human rights defender in a country that flout these rights,” Ebadi said.“Narges Mohammadi, this courageous Iranian woman whose iniquitous sentence has just been upheld on appeal, holds a special place in our thoughts and we once again call for her immediate release,” Deloire said.Mohammadi was the spokesman of the Centre for Human Rights Defenders, which was founded by Ebadi, and she worked with Legam, an outlawed campaign for the abolition of the death penalty in Iran.Iran is ranked 169th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

In a few weeks three sites – Tuoi Tre, and – were banned or made to tow the line. The organisation also condemned legal actions against journalist Nguyen Thi Lan Anh. News Receive email alerts April 7, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information VietnamAsia – Pacific to go further Reporters Without Borders has condemned a government assault on press freedom, led by politburo ideologue Nguyen Khoa Diem, who has decided to reign in the official press, particularly new websites.In just three weeks, three publications – Tuoi Tre, and – have been banned or brought to book.The worldwide press freedom organisation also deplored legal action against Nguyen Thi Lan Anh, a journalist on the daily Tuoi Tre. “The Vietnamese authorities view the media as propaganda vehicles,” it said. “With less than a year to go to the next Communist Party Congress, they particularly fear websites, even official ones, since they are a sounding board for popular discontent.””We need to support this young generation of journalists who want to report on the news as it is and not be used as mouthpieces for the regime,” it said.Nguyen Thi Lan Anh was charged on 5 January 2005, with posting two briefs quoting a note from the Health Minister classified as a “state secret”. In it the minister called for an investigation into the abnormally high prices set by pharmaceutical business Zuellig Pharma VN. Tuoi Tre (Youth), one of Vietnam’s rare investigative publications, has been targeted by the government for several years.Vietnamese Prime Minister, Pham Van khai, on 8 November 2004, called for disciplinary steps to be taken against online press agency, run by Internet provider FTP – a state-owned company. It followed a demand for intervention by the Ministry of Culture and Information over “erroneous” articles published by the agency. The offending articles reported on government purchase of 78 Mercedes for the Europe-Asia (ASEM), in October 2004. It unleashed a wave of readers’ letter denouncing the import of luxury vehicles. Vnexpress posted some of the reactions, which appeared to particularly provoke the government’s ire. The editor and the journalists involved in the story were reportedly subjected to disciplinary action.The website (Vietnam News) was closed around 10 January on the order of the Ministry of Culture and Information. The site chiefly dealt with cultural and economic stories. As in the case of Vnexpress, it was posting readers’ letters that was believed to have prompted the ban.This clampdown on the media has been orchestrated by Nguyen Khoa Diem, head of the party central committee’s ideology and culture commission. In recent months he has publicly insisted on several occasions on the need to bring into line a press, which he said, chased after sensationalism and profit rather than confining itself to putting out government ideology.
