Players with a point to prove in the 2018 Six Nations

first_imgWhether it be because of competition for places, injuries, or other factors, there are many players who have to prove they belong on the international stage. Sam Tremlett takes a look at some players who have points to prove this Six Nations. FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREGreig LaidlawInjury blues: Coming back from injury, Laidlaw has to prove he can shine at scrum-half for ScotlandThe broken fibula Laidlaw picked up playing for ASM Clermont Auvergne came at the worst time for the Scot. As a result of the three month lay-off, he has lost the captaincy to John Barclay, and there have been questions as to whether he fits into the way Scotland now play. Claims he is too slow at the breakdown and doesn’t pass quickly enough have been thrown his way. In 2018, Laidlaw has to prove these criticisms are unwarranted and that he is more than capable of leapfrogging Ali Price, who starts against Wales. Additionally, for the first time in a long time, Scotland are being tipped to contend for the title, so Laidlaw must inspire that young and talented backline when he gets into the fray.Matthieu JalibertPlenty of potential: Youngster Jalibert (left) can use the 2018 Six Nations to prove he belongs on the Test stageIncluding Jalibert on this list seems unfair considering how young he is and how far into the deep end he is being thrown for France. But considering how Jacques Brunel has selected him over vastly more experienced players, he has to prove that his selection was warranted, and that he is capable of making the step up to international level. Transferring his sublime play for Bordeaux up another level will not be easy but it looks like coach Brunel will give him ample opportunity in these Six Nations.Carlo Canna  Players with a point to prove in the 2018 Six NationsDylan HartleyLike Chris Robshaw before him, there seems to be constant scrutiny of the captaincy of Hartley. At the moment, this is largely because many believe Jamie George should be England’s first-choice No 2. Seen as less dynamic than the Saracens hooker, Hartley still has the total support of head coach Eddie Jones, while some say that his set-piece nous and consistent throwing is a key factor in him remaining at the helm, rather than his running game or his work around the breakdown. It should also be pointed out, though, that George has a throwing accuracy in the mid-90s, to add to his all-round play.Hartley has to prove to his doubters that there is more than one aspect to his game and that he can add some dynamism to proceedings. He also needs to repay the faith Jones has placed in him. Another aspect of this is that Hartley, although he has not received a card with England since 2014, still has to win over some fans who do not feel he should be a figurehead for the English national team.Rob Kearney Take flight: Kearney is imperious in the air, but his spot is still under threatIrish full-back Rob Kearney has huge experience, collecting over 75 caps and playing in two Lions Tours. He is also one of the best in the world at collecting the high ball. However, his starting spot has been under threat from explosive Leinster youngster Jordan Larmour, who has been lighting up the Pro14. At 31 his peak may well be behind him, but Kearney is competitive enough that we can assume he is going to use the 2018 Six Nations to prove he is still top dog in the Ireland 15 shirt.Leigh Halfpenny More than a kicker: Halfpenny has to show Gatland there is more to his game than kickingAnother fullback with a point to prove in 2018 is Leigh Halfpenny. Of late, Liam Williams has been competing for the starting spot primarily because he is so dangerous back there, as shown by his Lions displays against New Zealand. But with Williams out for the foreseeable future with an abdominal injury, Halfpenny has possession of the 15 shirt. Welsh legend JJ Williams recently claimed Halfpenny had lost his spark and says he needs to offer more of an attacking threat with ball in hand rather than simply kick downfield at every opportunity. With Wales attempting to inbed a new attacking style this might be difficult, but proving there is more to his game than kicking will be vital for Halfpenny in 2018, and with more inexperienced players in the Welsh backline, he must also prove he can be a leader too. Can he deliver?: Carlo Canna has helped Zebra improve mightily. Can he help Italy do the same?Italian fly-half Carlo Canna is our final player with a point to prove in 2018. Italian domestic rugby has been improving thanks to markedly better performances by Benetton Treviso and Zebre so far this season. And this slightly raises expectations at the international level, expectations which are being thrust upon players like Canna. He has to prove that the upward trend in Italian club rugby can power the Test side on, whilst also confirming that he is the national side’s long-term playmaker.Do you agree or disagree with this list?

Need for speed: The value of pace in rugby

first_imgWe examine how pace can be a difference-maker on the elite club and Test stage. This feature first appeared in the issue of Rugby World on sale throughout November. BARELY FOUR minutes into England’s 2014 Twickenham Test against the All Blacks, Brad Barritt threw a looping ball to Jonny May. It was May’s second game against New Zealand but his first on home soil. As he passed halfway, he thought he eyed a hole in the defence…“In that situation I remember we were really tight defensively,” Conrad Smith, who was covering May, recalls. “I let myself get too narrow, so I was calling Ben (Smith) to hold on Jonny a little longer, to let me get wider. Ben was obviously worried about the outside so as he pushed off I knew I was in trouble.”May ran an arc between the Smiths and made for the touchline, outside a covering Israel Dagg. The Kiwi full-back grabbed nothing but air as he tried to tackle the England wing. May had just blazed his way to a career-high try.Smith goes on: “I’ve marked a lot of guys with real pace, full-backs like Israel Folau and Willie le Roux can be nightmares for a centre. So I always worked really hard to make sure we defended in twos and threes around those sort of guys. I’d always do the same for my wingers when left to mark guys such as Jonny…”Sometimes, no matter how savvy you are, genuine speed can undo the best defence. Amidst a season of blistering performances, we look at the mechanics of burning tacklers, the psychology of a break and how the best can get even better…Track star: Darren Campbell in Athens in 2004RUNNING SMARTAs one of the best defensive leaders in the modern game, Smith spent his Test career ensuring he would have a minimum of one-on-ones against fast players, particularly wingers. However, even the most electric wideouts must consider how best to utilise their natural abilities.Darren Campbell won an Olympic gold medal in the 4x100m relay in Athens in 2004. In recent years he has trained athletes as a speed and movement consultant and spent two seasons working with Wasps. He tried to make some things clear about running in rugby.“I look at the movements and efficiency. That’s about different percentages you are running at, the gears you use. Most people just want to run at 100%. Once you’ve got through contact and use your mechanics, it’s about taking control and feeling how to use power.”Unpicking bad habits can be a large part of Campbell’s gig. But his time in rugby has helped evolve his views too. So while he could get everyone in a diverse squad working on their knee lift or pulling up into their stride down the track, he’s well aware that bulkier beasts don’t need 70m sprints in a game – they need to bust a tackle.He also knows some fleeter-footed players need control so they can use a sidestep or be equipped to accelerate once they are through a gap. Which is why he adopted the phrase: “You’re in control – the tackler doesn’t know what you’re going to do.”FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREBut there is a fundamental you can’t avoid. “The key thing in sprinting is switching from explosive power to relaxation,” Campbell says, thinking of the energy system used in a flat-out run.“You cannot go faster than your fastest. Everybody will decelerate. If you stay relaxed and he’s fighting to catch you, he will decelerate quicker than you. You only have to look at the success of Elliot Daly, who wasn’t a winger but went on the Lions tour and played at wing – his speed has increased by so much. If you focus, it’s impossible to not get faster.”At their best, Wasps have been able to attack from far out; they have had the confidence to break from distance. Of course, at the very top of the game, players will be that bit faster, that bit better conditioned – Wasps have plenty of international experience in their ranks.At the flash points of the season, the very best long-range finishers may break out at 90% of their maximum speed, be able to scan the field around them, make decisions and maintain their technique in order to get to the line. Winning footraces is about decelerating at a slower rate than the chasers.Tearing away: Ugo Monye scores that famous try for the Lions in 2009THRILL OF THE CHASEEven average pavement pounders talk of the ‘runner’s high’ – a feeling of euphoria experienced during an arduous run. And for the lucky, in rugby there is an equally heavenly sensation as you burn off opponents. Jonny May, who has worked on his form with Campbell’s relay partner in 2004 in Athens, Marlon Devonish, feels he has got even faster over the years. Perhaps rugby can still become that little bit quicker. But maybe runners really shine when they are sharp in the minds and conditioned to gallop.This feature first appeared in the issue of Rugby World on sale throughout November. True speed: Jonny May burns past Conrad Smith back in 2014 center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “It was a lot more exciting for me to make a break than to score a try,” says Tonderai Chavhanga, the former blur of a Springbok who found such moments of bliss throughout his patchwork career. “There’s more satisfaction in creating a gap with your speed. When I was running in open space, it felt almost as if there was just me. I couldn’t hear the crowd. It was like I was running free. It was almost like I was flying – it was just me, the ball and the ground.”When it comes to the psychology of being hunted down, Chavhanga has never overthought those moments of breaking free. But for Ugo Monye, the man who scored the try of the 2009 Lions tour, you need bloody-mindedness to finish off such chances.He says: “I always backed myself, so the moment I broke I was thinking about the try-line. I had the belief, especially in my prime, that I wouldn’t be caught.Let loose: Tonderai Chavhanga“In saying that, a break in your half is different to a break in the opposition half. In your own half, I think you back yourself but must also look to see where your support is coming from – it’s often your second involvement or touch that gets you the try. In the opposition half, any good winger with speed should pin their ears back and back their pace. We yearn for one-on-ones all game and now you have it, potentially a full-back or covering winger – back yourself!”There are people out there who pay money for so-called ‘Zombie runs’ – events where you are motivated to run by being chased. How does being chased affect your mentality?“A chaser focuses you,” Monye says. “It puts your speed drills under pressure as poor technical sprinters will tighten up and won’t be as efficient. I loved a chase. Nothing better than seeing two speed merchants race. Think of Semesa Rokoduguni versus May earlier in the season. I always knew if I could get away quickly, over the first ten or 15 yards, I wouldn’t be caught.”Chavhanga cannot remember being caught. He agrees that if they master their gears, a smart speedster will not be snared, no matter what their time over a full 100m. He sees Shane Williams as the master of using whatever pace was at his disposal to full effect. Clever runners can enjoy the game of cat and mouse.ADDING MOREIn 2013, former Wallabies conditioner Dean Benton said that despite Israel Folau’s lethal speed, he could get faster. Having looked at past studies of the multi-sport phenom, Benton told The Australian: “At the Broncos in 2009 we analysed Israel’s running technique. There were discrepancies between his considerable 80cm vertical jump and his ability to convert this into horizontal and lateral speed.“Essentially, we directed his training towards improving his running skill and related lumbo-pelvic coordination.”Benton felt that Folau wouldn’t reach his true potential until he was in his late 20s – it is worth noting that he is 28 now – and even then, focus on good habits and technique was needed. The greats can always get better.Quick off the mark: Israel Folau of the WallabiesIt’s a matter of looking at what is most important to work on and how it fits into your long-term plan. Jonas Dodoo, the coach who worked with Olympic gold medalist long-jumper Greg Rutherford, once told The Mirror of Anthony Watson: “If I could get him to do athletics, if he wasn’t playing rugby, he’s someone who could run very fast over 100m.”Many a fine player has the perfect raw materials to run. Sure, there are only so many hours of training a player can put in before there is a detrimental affect. However, it doesn’t always have to be purely about improving the out-and-out pace of a player with specialist training.“Christian Wade has not had any hammy injuries this season,” Campbell points out. “That’s because he knows how to run now. He actually had an athletics background but now he understands the movements and doesn’t overwork the hamstrings.”last_img read more

How to Choose The Best Backpack for Your Child

Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear TAGSBackpackChildrenFlorida Hospital – Apopka Previous articleAmusing Ourselves to DeathNext articleApopka High School alumnus directs traffic Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! Right Shape and SizeSure, it’s fun to pick a pack that expresses your child’s personality – from cartoon characters to color to fun designs. It’s even more important to choose one that‘s the right size and shape for their bodies and what they need to carry. So, if you’ve got younger students, be sure to select a smaller backpack instead of one that’s too large.   Don’t Overload ItMany kids involved in afterschool activities carry their backpacks from early morning until late evening. And if their carrying sports equipment or a laptop, it just adds to that load.While backpacks are necessary, overweight or improperly fitted ones can cause joint and muscle strain, leading to neck, back and shoulder pain. Children who routinely carry heavy backpacks also may experience circulation or nerve issues, as well as problems with posture.Preventing and Treating Backpack InjuriesWhen kids use an overly heavy backpack, they may arch their back or lean forward to compensate for the extra weight, which can cause stress on the spine and lead to various levels of discomfort. Tight or weighed-down backpack straps may pose a problem as well, as pressure from the straps can compress the supraclavicular nerve over the top of the shoulder blade, causing pain. “The most common problems are shoulder, back and neck pain,” says Woo. Most of these problems are due to overweight, undersized/oversized or poorly designed backpacks, or improper wearing, such as when they sling one strap over their shoulder.Wear the Pack CorrectlyDr. Woo recommends backpacks with camping-pack type features, such as thick padded shoulder straps, a chest strap, or a hip belt. These help spread the backpack’s weight evenly on the shoulders and hips. Be sure to use both straps, and don’t sling the pack over one shoulder.Consider Specific Features or Alternative BagsIf this style isn’t appealing, Woo suggests a messenger bag, a rolling backpack, or even using alternate sets of books for home and school to avoid weight-related stress or pain. Store the heaviest items – laptops, books, binders – on the bottom, closest to their back. If they take a water bottle to school, don’t fill it until they get to school, to keep the weight down.Scoliosis Risk: Fact or Fiction?It‘s a misconception that overweight backpacks cause scoliosis, a curvature of the spine. According to Dr. Woo, “There are no scientific articles that support this notion, and many dispel this theory.” So the good news is, you don’t need to worry about your children developing the condition from using a heavy backpack. Keep in mind, though, that spinal stress from an overweight backpack can affect your child’s posture.Backpack Buyer’s GuideIf you’re still not sure if a certain backpack is right for your child, Dr. Woo offers a few basic guidelines to follow: –       Always buy a pack that is appropriately sized for your kids.–       Make sure their backpack doesn’t weigh more than 5 to 7 percent of their body weight.–       Look for brands that offer lifetime guarantees on workmanship, or produce similar packs for backpacking and camping. Back-to-school shopping is just around the corner, but before you rush out and buy the cutest backpack off the shelf, keep practicality in mind.

Only the  first floor volume, finshe wit natural wood, is exibited .  Laconic, sculptural form of volumes interprets the silhouette of traditional  sloped house. Divided volume, varying forms forms, humane proportions, glass and wood harmony creates the impression of lightness.  Interior  spaces follows forms of the volume. Integral natural wood finish of the facades and roof creates impression of form solidity.  The volume with its materials and coloring flourishes in forest and valley background. By dividing the volume, micro-spaces –  courtyards  are created.  This is the building in nature. Therefore all main interior spaces have  entrances into exterior spaces- courtyards. Courtyards are arranged in different levels, creating sensation of wholeness and privacy, enables to enjoy both morning and evening sun.  The hanging volume of the first floor naturally creates the terrace. Windows of the ground floor are partly covered with the vertical wooden lamelles, they serve as protection from overheat and becomes a part of the interior. Suroundings are planted with grass, the path to the enrance is of granite tiles in order to minimize the intervention to the nature. The plot is surounded with the open work fence. Save this picture!© Norbert TukajSave this picture!Plan 2Save this picture!© Norbert TukajProduct Description. For building facades exclusively natural finishing materials were selected. The main finishing material is pine wood manufactured by ,,Kebony“ technology. Pine was selected as typical tree for the surrounding. Using unique ,,Kebony“ technology  wood becomes particularly resistant, stable, durable and there is no need for any additional maintenance. It is ecological product and this becomes important factor in regional park territory. Within time, pine wood grays ant fits the environment even more by fading in pine trunk background.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajSave this picture!© Norbert TukajBecause of the exclusive qualities of ,,Kebony“ technology, manufactured wood allowed to create visually solid volumes. Finish is applied not only for the facades but also for varying geometry of roof planes, visible from the slope.  The wood is attached to stainless steel profiles system within self-fixate plastic holders. The accurate wood geometry allowed to combine wooden finish planes, form vertical wooden blinds by creating accurate graphics. The graphics is continued by natural shale finish. Black ,,Rathscheck“ shale is used for finish of the lower parts of the volume. Shale finish is also attached to stainless steel profile system fixing with fixating glues in vertical stripes. The graphical expression is enhanced by metal railing stripes fixed above the shale contunueing its vertical division. Different materials, different elements supplement  each other fulfilling the facade graphical expression. It is all about the graphical interpretation of park trees trunks. Save this picture!© Norbert TukajThe other reason for choosing natural wood as the main finishing material of the volume is the aim to interpret Lithuanian traditional wooden house. The main characteristics of Lithuanian traditional houses are laconic volume, double pitched roof, wooden blinds, wooden finishing and granite rocks foundation.  Considering that the project site is in regional park territory, the idea was to remind qualities of traditional farmstead house by interpreting it in a contemporary way.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajProject gallerySee allShow lessBellecombe Holiday House / ACAUSelected ProjectsAluminium Design WorkshopWorkshop Share Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Valley Villa / arches 2016 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796792/valley-villa-arches Clipboard Architects: arches Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Vilnius, Lithuania Lithuania Area:  415 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Housescenter_img Photographs:  Norbert Tukaj Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Valley Villa / archesSave this projectSaveValley Villa / arches Manufacturers: Focus, Reynaers Aluminium, Kebony, Rathscheck Schiefer, Inarchi, Lifesteel A.Liola, R.Liola, E.Neniškis, M.Kaučikaitė, E.Geštautaitė Lead Architects: Year:  “COPY” Projects “COPY” Save this picture!© Norbert Tukaj+ 39 Sharelast_img read more

Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh: ‘On lynching & the Ku Klux Klan’

first_imgHo Chi MinhThis May 19 will mark the 125th birthday anniversary of the great anti-imperialist leader, Ho Chi Minh. “Uncle Ho” was a leader of the National Liberation Front, a people’s army that defeated both French and U.S. military invaders in Vietnam. In honor of this legendary figure and the current Black Lives Matter uprising, WW is printing the following excerpts from a report made by this Vietnamese communist at the Fifth Congress of the Communist International gathering held in July 1924 in Moscow during the “National and Colonial Question” session. He died in 1969, six years before Vietnam’s liberation from U.S. imperialism. Go to tinyurl.com/n5nlck6 to read the entire report.It is well-known that the Black race is the most oppressed and the most exploited of the human family. It is well-known that the spread of capitalism and the discovery of the New World had as an immediate result the rebirth of slavery. What everyone does not perhaps know is that after sixty-five years of so-called emancipation, American Negroes still endure atrocious moral and material sufferings, of which the most cruel and horrible is the custom of lynching.[Charles] Lynch was the name of a planter in Virginia, a landlord and judge. Availing himself of the troubles of the War of Independence, he took the control of the whole district into his hands. He inflicted the most savage punishment, without trial or process of law, on Loyalists and Tories. Thanks to the slave traders, the Ku Klux Klan and other secret societies, the illegal and barbarous practice of lynching is spreading and continuing widely in the states of the American Union. It has become more inhuman since the emancipation of the Blacks, and is especially directed at the latter.From 1899 to 1919, 2,600 Blacks were lynched, including 51 women and girls and ten former Great War soldiers.Among 78 Blacks lynched in 1919, 11 were burned alive, three burned after having been killed, 31 shot, three tortured to death, one cut into pieces, one drowned and 11 put to death by various means.Georgia heads the list with 22 ­victims. Mississippi follows with 12. Both have also three lynched soldiers to their credit.Among the charges brought against the victims of 1919: one of having been a member of the League of Non-Partisans (independent farmers); one of having distributed revolutionary publications; one of expressing his opinion on lynchings too freely; one of having criticized the clashes between whites and Blacks in Chicago; one of having been known as a leader of the cause of the Blacks; and one for not getting out of the way and thus frightening a white child who was in a motorcar. In 1920, there were fifty lynchings, and in 1922 there were twenty-eight.These crimes were all motivated by economic jealousy. Either the Negroes in the area were more prosperous than the whites, or the Black workers would not let themselves be exploited thoroughly. In all cases, the principal culprits were never troubled, for the simple reason that they were always incited, encouraged, spurred on and then protected by politicians, financiers and authorities, and above all, by the reactionary press.The place of origin of the Ku Klux Klan is the southern United States. In May, 1866, after the Civil War, young people gathered together in a small locality of the state of Tennessee to set up a circle.The victory of the federal government had just freed the Negroes and made them citizens. The agriculture of the South — deprived of its Black labor — was short of hands. Former landlords were exposed to ruin. The Klansmen proclaimed the principle of the supremacy of the white race. The agrarian and slaveholding bourgeoisie saw in the Klan a useful agent, almost a savior. They gave it all the help in their power. The Klan’s methods ranged from intimidation to murder.The Negroes, having learned during the war that they are a force if united, are no longer allowing their kinsmen to be beaten or murdered with impunity. In July 1919, in Washington, they stood up to the Klan and a wild mob. The battle raged in the capital for four days. In August, they fought for five days against the Klan and the mob in Chicago. Seven regiments were mobilized to restore order. In September, the government was obliged to send federal troops to Omaha to put down similar strife. In various other states the Negroes defend themselves no less energetically.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
