Cobham U18 – Team of the Year

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Cobham U18 are our 2010-11 Team of the Year and win 22 kitbags and baselayers from Canterbury. Bideford, Heathfield & Waldron, Durham University, University of Bath Women and Barking all challenged strongly.This article appeared in the July 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK Your Team of the Year – Cobham U18To measure the success of a mini-rugby section, try looking at the older age groups that emerge from it. The Cobham U18 side that has just completed an incredible journey contains six players who have been right through the system since first picking up a ball aged five: Tom Bliss, Richard Philip, Olly Mays, Matthew Cragg, Peter McCallum and George Gazzard.Teen titans: Peter McCallum (left) and Alex StoutEighty per cent of the U18 squad have been together from minis, learning the values of good sportsmanship along with the skills inherent in an effective team. In what may be an unprecedented feat, the boys have been Surrey champions from U11 through to U18 – eight straight seasons in which they’ve not lost a game on English soil. In the Surrey Youth Leagues they’ve scored 1,867 points (with 223 tries) against 233. How has this been achieved?“It’s really just parents committed to doing their thing on a Sunday morning,” says Neil McCallum, who has coached the side since U10s. “Coaching is simple really – you win your set ball and look for space. We focus on unit skills and organisation, and like an open game. We play with respect and put a tie on after the game. And we’re lucky to have talented lads who know how to dig deep when they have to.”The squad contains six internationals. Jack Clifford, the England U18 blindside, has been offered a contract at Harlequins, while Maddy Hughes has played on the wing for USA U20. No 8 Alex Stout (U16), fly-half Elliot Markham (U16) and wing Tom Harty (U18 Clubs) have all represented England while Tom Flynn, a wing for Ireland U18 Clubs, was a prop at U13 level.B-team coach Steve Heard has helped push the squad ethic in a group containing seven divisional and 19 county players. A tour to South Africa at U16 level – arranged to discourage the playing drop-off that often occurs at that age – cemented long-standing relationships and led to the side’s finest hour: a 55-3 rout of Bedford to become national U17 champions in 2010. Independent Schools Barbarians (37-31) are a more recent victim of a side that will now largely graduate to the club’s senior ranks.center_img Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad?

Bulls too powerful for the Brumbies at Loftus Versfeld

first_imgThursday Feb 25, 2010 Bulls too powerful for the Brumbies at Loftus Versfeld Defending champions the Bulls proved too strong at Loftus Versfeld on the weekend as they notched up their second half century in two weeks, beating the Brumbies 50-32 in an entertaining match.Flyhalf Morne Steyn scored two tries and kicked five conversions and five penalties as the home side picked up their second consecutive win in this years competition, with Steyn scoring 35 points in total.The Brumbies were packed with talent and a handful of top class Wallaby players, including the returning Matt Giteau, and had actually led the match 27-20 and looked in control early in the second half.It took a powerful forward performance from the Bulls to stop them though, scoring 30 unanswered points to take them to yet another home win in the tournament.The Brumbies managed a consolation try at the end, scored by wing Pat McCabe after some great passing amongst the backs, but it was too little too late as the Bulls went to the top of the table after two rounds.Captain Victor Matfield was cited after the match for allegedly striking Rocky Elsom, as well as charging into a ruck without binding onto another player. He has since been cleared though, and will be free to play their next match, against the Waratahs at Loftus on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In addition, the relation, the correlation and  the collision occur when there is no syntony in the lifestyles of the 3 generations  is also a big challenge. In order to solve this problem, we consciously design a big house with 2 smaller private houses inside but they have the common front yard as well as back yard; at the end, all of the structures come together as one block .Save this picture!© Quang DamThe creation of a secondary activity area and a walkway to the back of the house  helps segregating daily life activities of the 2 families and preventing them from colliding with each other; however, the house is still a continuous space for the children to play and the whole family to connect with one another. The main entrance of structure reminds us of “porch roof”  of a traditional Vietnamese house, it is like a terrace space made of trees and water .The main entrance is also higher lifted than the floor to create a gap that is big enough for ventilation. “Ngạch cửa” – an interesting detail of a Vietnamese house – is a place where they can sit,  relax, or chat with their neighbors;  especially, this is also – the children’ favorite playing space . The living room seems to be a small indoor yard where the light always changes, this is an enjoyable highlight when we step into this space.Save this picture!DiagramIn addition, one focus point of this project which we want to retain is the old tiled roof which was built by the grandfather himself about 50 years ago before the new house was constructed. This roof is the center and also  the transitional space, it is seen as the soul of the overall structure of this house. The space below this tiled roof is the place where the whole family have dinner together everynight -, share stories as well as recalling past memories. The space above the roof  is transformed into a multi-purposed place for the children – to relax or reading book….Save this picture!© Quang DamWith “Khoảng trống” and natural light cleverly tackled, we can easily feel the outside weather from the inside. The spatial ratio is also carefully considered to create necessary contrast between one space and another, light and darkness, modern and tradition. The height of the space is correlated with the empty spaces to bring the edequate sensation and make the people feel comfortable living inside. Beside ratio, space, light, and shadow, we also put into some trees  so that everyone who comes in “the memory” can feel everything truely and closely.The trees are the balancing points between the visual and material blocks of the house, they also have sensation-balancing effect.Save this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!Plan 2Save this picture!Plan 3“The Memory” is not just a house, it also reminds the family members of  of their lost ones. According to the “No born, no die” philosophy, when we lose a beloved family member, the grief will always be there but the essence is in fact  “no born, no die”. We believe that in this house, in this space, the soul of the late grandfather and father will always exist  – in every single tile, pillar, detail… which was made by the ancestors themselves. .Save this picture!© Quang Dam“The Memory” aims to clear out the notion about the contrast between oldness and newness, light and darkness, tradition and modern. The project aims to stop people from tying themselves to one perception and taking it as the only truth.

Charity Commission lifts statutory supervision of Oxfam GB

first_img  258 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis She added that these issues go beyond Oxfam and that all charities should prioritise effective safeguarding:“The public expect the way charities go about their work to be consistent with the spirit of charity – charitable aims don’t justify uncharitable means. No charity can afford to lose sight of its core purpose in the way it operates on the ground, no matter how large or complex its operations become. And when a person comes to harm because of their contact with a charity, it betrays everything charity stands for.“All charities working with vulnerable people overseas or at home should ensure their approach to safeguarding is robust and effective. The right systems, processes and recourses are vital, but even more important are the intangible factors – leadership, organisational culture, and the commitment and integrity of everybody involved in a charity.”Oxfam GB responseOxfam GB has welcomed the Charity Commission’s finding, saying that safeguarding and culture change will continue to be key priorities and that it will make further improvements, and work to strengthen practice across the sector.Danny Sriskandarajah, Oxfam GB chief executive, said:“I am pleased that both the Charity Commission and the independent assessors have recognised the progress we have made in strengthening our safeguarding. All forms of sexual misconduct are abhorrent and an affront to everything we stand for.“We have worked hard to learn from the mistakes of the past and ensure that our vital work to save and improve lives takes place in as safe an environment as possible in a way that is consistent with our values.“I am acutely aware of our responsibility to those who generously fund our work and to the communities we work with around the world, as well as to our staff and volunteers. I am grateful for the trust they have placed in us as we have embarked on this important journey to become a safer organisation. Today’s announcement is an important milestone in that journey, but I can promise that this is not the end of our efforts.”Clifford Isabelle, Oxfam Director of Global Safeguarding, also commented, saying:“No organisation can ever say it is free from the risk of abuse, but we will rightly be judged by what we do to mitigate that risk and by how we respond when incidents do occur. We will continue to improve, taking the necessary steps to root out unacceptable behaviour, encouraging communities to report concerns and giving top priority to the needs and wishes of survivors.“There must be no place for perpetrators of abuse within Oxfam or the wider sector. In recent years, we have made significant strides in addressing our past failings, but we know there is more to do. Working in partnership with local communities is crucial – both in preventing abuse and ensuring that survivors have the confidence and safe spaces to report misconduct – and we are committed to doing that.” Tagged with: Charity Commission Oxfam Charity Commission lifts statutory supervision of Oxfam GB AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Melanie May | 25 February 2021 | News 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 www.thepurplepim.com. Oxfam GB has been returned to standard regulatory oversight by the Charity Commission following significant improvements on safeguarding, the regulator has said.The Charity Commission has lifted its statutory supervision of Oxfam GB after concluding that the charity has significantly strengthened its approach to keeping people safe since its 2019 inquiry called for ‘significant systemic and cultural’ change.According to a report published today [Thursday 25 February], the charity has implemented wide-ranging changes to its organisational culture, and strengthened its approach, resources and processes, with people served or employed by the charity now better protected against abuse, exploitation, and other forms of harm.The inquiry & its outcomeThe Commission’s statutory inquiry into Oxfam GB opened in February 2018, to examine the charity’s governance, including leadership and culture around safeguarding matters, and its management, policies and practices. In two parts; the first examined the charity’s handling in 2011 of the complaints about its staff in Haiti; the second part its wider approach to safeguarding, both historically and at that time, which included supervising an independent review around safeguarding in the charity.The inquiry concluded in June 2019 and found the charity’s governance and culture with regard to safeguarding had repeatedly fallen below standards expected, It also found that it tolerated poor behaviour and failed to meet promises made on safeguarding.The charity committed to deliver against 100 actions or recommendations to improve the charity’s governance and approach to safeguarding – some of which were implemented while the original inquiry was ongoing. The regulator issued Oxfam GB with a legal direction under section 84 of the Charities Act to implement those actions and recommendations that were outstanding at the conclusion of the inquiry in June 2019.The charity has since been subject to a period of statutory supervision.Helen Stephenson, chief executive of the Charity Commission, said:“Oxfam GB’s leadership has done much work since 2019 to respond to our inquiry, and learn lessons from the charity’s past mistakes and failings. That effort, overseen and scrutinised by the Commission, means that Oxfam GB is now providing a safer environment for all who come into contact with it. But safeguarding is never ‘done’. As our report makes clear, while Oxfam has made significant progress, its leaders must ensure that the charity’s living culture – the spoken and unspoken expectations placed on all staff and all volunteers – continues to promote an environment that keeps people safe into the future.” Advertisementlast_img read more

From best friends to business partners: TCU students launch hat company to raise money for charity

first_imgLinkedin ReddIt Facebook Facebook TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printTwo TCU sophomores started a hat company and are donating a portion of the proceeds to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.Bryn Carden, sophomore finance and supply chain management double major, and Francesca Jabbour, sophomore business major, launched BF Hats on Feb. 1.Carden and Jabbour created the company hoping to gain hands-on experience in the business world and raise funds for philanthropy, which is a passion for both of them.“We decided to start designing hats because they are fun, stylish, universal and wearable for any occasion,” said Jabbour. “Throwing a hat on makes you look more put together and we wanted to use our passion for style to give back to the community.”A look at some of the hats available from BF Hats. Photo Courtesy: Bfhats.com BF Hats had more than 100 orders within the first three days of launching its website. The pair was shocked to see they received multiple orders from their hometowns and the TCU community, as well as orders from across the country.“We have never felt so much love and support from the TCU community,” said Carden. “Our friends and family have been amazing by modeling for our website, supporting us financially and providing us with a lot of emotional support.”Carden and Jabbour said it was important to them that they used their business platform to give back to the community. They want the proceeds to contribute toward a greater good, rather than keeping the revenue for themselves, they said.“St. Jude’s is the backbone of our company,” said Carden. “From a young age, I would follow my mom to work and see the children in the hospitals struggling through treatment, so this philanthropy has always had a special place in my heart.”The website features brightly colored trucker hats with different combinations of colors and patches. Nine different hats are available for purchase on their website, but custom orders are available upon request.“Being a full-time college student and a business owner has taught me to manage my time more effectively,” said Jabbour. “Even though it might be tough to balance right now, I know that this experience and the lessons it is teaching me will be worth it in the long run.”Carden and Jabbour hope to launch another line before spring recess so students are able to take their BF Hats wherever they go. They also hope to launch a sorority and fraternity line sometime in the near future, as they are both involved in the Greek community at TCU.

A total of 60 journalists and media workers have fled the city. Some who went back paid for this mistake with their lives.“We remind all parties to the war in Iraq that they are required by UN Security Council Resolution 2222 of 2015 and the Geneva Conventions to respect journalists, and we reiterate our appeal to the Security Council to refer the situation in Iraq to the International Criminal Court in order combat impunity for crimes of violence against journalists,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East and Maghreb desk.“The JFO’s field investigation shines light on the terrible fate suffered by journalists since Islamic State took Mosul and the jihadi group’s determination to maintain absolute control over information coming out the city. This has also been seen in the way it treated the studios and equipment of local media outlets as the spoils of war, taking them over in order to pursue its information offensive.”Iraq’s second largest city, Mosul fell to IS on 10 June 2014. Since then, independent media activity has been non-existent. All media outlets have been taken over and are now used to put out the jihadi group’s message. All journalists still in the city have had to stop working to avoid being the target of reprisals.This joint report lists the names of each of Islamic State’s victims together with a short biography. For safety reasons, some of the journalists interviewed asked not to be identified. Although Mosul has been an information “black hole” since June 2014, RSF and JFO have together done everything possible to verify all the information in the report.Iraq is ranked 156th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and its partner organization in Iraq, the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory (JFO), are publishing a devastating report about media freedom in Mosul since Islamic State seized control of this northern city.
