Harlequins second-row and former Wallaby James Horwill

first_imgFormer Wallaby skipper James Horwill on Quins’ jokers, road rage and how he got his ‘Big Kev’ nickname Growing up in Australia you’re used to most creepy-crawlies. I don’t really like spiders but it doesn’t bring me out in a rash. We don’t get many of them in Putney, which is an advantage.Who’d you least like to be in a lift with?I’ve been stuck in a lift quite a few times, with the Wallabies. Can I say Dave Ward again? He’d chew my ear off.What’s been your most embarrassing moment in rugby?When I was playing in the U16s, the emotions got the better of me and I had a try disallowed for over-celebration.I threw a ball down on someone’s head after I’d scored and the ref reversed the decision. That was pretty humiliating. I didn’t do it again.Who would be your three favourite dinner guests?Michael Jordan, the greatest of all time, to pick his brains about how he’s been so successful in business. Someone like Jay-Z would be cool; a lot of those rappers have reinvented themselves. Richard Branson would be interesting, too. He’s very charismatic and hasn’t made his money in a conventional way.MJ: Horwill wants to pick Michael Jordan’s brain on how to be successful in business (Getty Images)Do you have any hidden talents?I do a good Chewbacca impression. I’m pretty big and hairy so it fits well.What is your guilty pleasure?Peanut M&Ms. The night before a match, I treat myself because I know I’m going to burn off any calories.Any plans for when you stop playing? TAGS: Harlequins 30 Minutes with Harlequins second-row and former Wallaby James HorwillWho’s the biggest character in the Quins changing room? Dave Ward. And in the backs, Danny Care is pretty quick-witted. I room with Dave (Ward), I’m the sensible roomie. He says I shower too often so he buys loads of Dove stuff and makes out it’s been sent by them because I’m such a loyal customer. He knows far too much about me – he does his research, I’ll give him that.And who makes you laugh the most?Joe (Marler). He’s pretty bright and understands what makes people tick. He likes making people feel as socially awkward as possible, but he’s a great guy to have around. A one-off.What makes you chuckle onlineThe Betoota Advocate, a satirical newspaper about a typical Aussie town. There are clever headlines and articles. I’d recommend it, especially if you’re missing Oz.What is your nickname?Big Kev. When I was growing up there was a fictional character in these adverts called Kev McQueen. He sold toilet products and his catchphrase was ‘I’m excited!’. As a kid I was quite excitable, so it stuck. First it was Kev, then Big Kev. Everyone bar my wife and parents call me it, or a version of it. It has travelled 12,000 miles to London with me.Big Kev: Horwill’s nickname has travelled over from Australia (Getty Images)What are your favourite nicknames in the squad?There’s nothing too weird. Adam Jones is Bomb and Mike Brown is Sméagol from Lord of the Rings, though we don’t say it to his face too much. Viss (Tim Visser) is the Flying Dutchman. He a plastic Scot, alright.Do you have any bugbears?It’s mainly in the car, bad drivers not indicating. Also, I find it weird here that people just pull up on the side of the road and put their hazard lights on and everyone is okay with that. How does that work? I lose my rag a bit. London traffic doesn’t help. I get angry and then my wife gets angry at me getting angry.How about phobias? I have a British passport, my mother is from here, so I could stay here. I’d like to work in sports admin or as a general manager – the business side of sport.This article originally appeared in the March 2018 edition of Rugby World magazine.

This two-storey, 110-meter long residential centre for people with mental disabilities has been designed in close conjunction with an existing tree structure. The resulting zig-zag- shape visually divides the building in smaller, human-scale areas, thus avoiding the perception of an institution. Slowly rising between the trees, a structure of wooden boardwalks accesses the dwellings on the first floor, providing it with a secondary landscape with a unique quality of its own.

The dark wooden siding of the facades are in strong contrast with the white frames around the windows.

She left behind her husband Ken, son Andrew, 22, and daughter Anna, 16. The HWF stepped-in to provide specialist bereavement counselling for the family through the charity’s partner, Harley Therapy, and also helped her son secure an internship with a global accounting and consulting firm.Ken Sazuze said: “This is our first Christmas without my wife Elsie. Losing her has been devastating and something words cannot explain. The HWF has supported us in ways we couldn’t have imagined, including helping my son to secure a great internship which may not have been possible otherwise.”NHS Million, an independent organisation also focused on raising awareness surrounding the issues faced by healthcare workers, supports the launch of the HWF’s Family Fund campaign; an independent organisation also focused on raising awareness surrounding the issues faced by healthcare workers. Asked for by healthcare workersThe Fund was created following responses from healthcare workers, who expressed their fear and anxiety about the impact their work may have on their lives and the lives of their loved ones.The risk from the virus remains highest for healthcare workers, who are seven times more likely to develop severe COVID-19 than non-essential workers.Dr Michelle Dawson, a Trustee at the Healthcare Workers’ Foundation and a Critical Care Doctor, had considered back in March whether she and her colleagues would survive the pandemic.She said: “As the pandemic was just beginning everyone was frightened about the new, unknown, deadly threat that was facing us. I remember doing a handover in critical care and looking round at my colleagues, wondering which of us would survive and who would die. Sadly two of those doctors have died of COVID-19 since that day. Both leave behind grieving families and children.“Healthcare workers risk their lives to help the public every day, and we must now step forward to take care of their families in their time of need.” Tagged with: COVID-19 Funding healthcarelast_img read more

Creator of ‘Bernie’ mittens partners with teddy bear maker

first_img Twitter Twitter Facebook Pinterest Creator of ‘Bernie’ mittens partners with teddy bear maker The teacher who created the recycled wool mittens that U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders wore to the presidential inauguration — engendering countless memes — is partnering with the Vermont Teddy Bear Company to create a whole mitten line to meet soaring demand, with some of the proceeds going to Make-A-Wish Vermont. “I can’t be more thrilled, because I personally can’t make 18,000 pairs of mittens,” Jen Ellis said Saturday, estimating how many people have contacted her. “Everybody will get their mittens — everybody.” Ellis, a Vermont elementary school teacher who has a side business making mittens out of recycled wool, gave Sanders a pair as a gift, and he wore them to President Joe Biden’s inauguration. His fashion look, also featuring a winter jacket made by Burton Snowboards, sparked countless memes prompted by the photo taken by Agence France-Presse: The former presidential candidate could be found on social media timelines taking a seat on the subway, the moon and the couch with the cast of “Friends,” among other creative locales. Sanders raised at least $1.8 million in merchandise for charities stemming from the Jan. 20 image of him seated with his arms and legs crossed, clad in his brown parka and the recycled wool mittens. Sanders put out so-called “Chairman Sanders” merchandise, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and stickers, on his campaign website. Vermont Teddy Bear, which makes handcrafted bears for all occasions, including a Bernie one, reached out to Ellis to see if she’d be interested in partnering. “Jen is going to work hand-in-hand — mitten-in-hand — with each one of our designers” to ensure that the ‘Bernie mitten’ design in multiple patterns is produced in a way that meets her standards of quality, said Hayes McCarthy, vice president of product innovation, brand creative and consumer experience. “We’re excited to be in the mittens category.” It’s not clear when the first mittens would be available for purchase. Those interested in getting a pair can leave an email at the company’s website. In the past, Vermont Teddy Bear has made special bears to raise money for Make-A-Wish Vermont, and recently gave office space to the organization for $1 a year, said James Hathaway, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Vermont. Hathaway said the charity lost $250,000 in revenue during the pandemic. “We are so grateful to Vermont Teddy Bear, Jen, and of course to Bernie for being so Bernie,” Hathaway said in a statement.

Central Vista -“Special Medical, Covid-19 Protocol Arrangements Made For Workers”: Centre Tells Delhi High Court, Seeks Dismissal Of Plea To Halt Work

first_imgNews UpdatesCentral Vista -“Special Medical, Covid-19 Protocol Arrangements Made For Workers”: Centre Tells Delhi High Court, Seeks Dismissal Of Plea To Halt Work Shreya Agarwal11 May 2021 1:42 AMShare This – xIn reply to a petition which was filed before the Delhi High Court seeking a temporary halt on the Central Vista Project construction in light of Covid-19, the Centre has filed its counter affidavit in Court today, claiming that various Covid-19 compliant facilities have been provided for the workers at the site including provisions for their stay, testing, isolation and medical aid at the site. Alleging that all this information was in the public domain but was suppressed by the petitioner, the plea terms the petition “an abuse of process of law” and seeks its dismissal with costs.Advertisement The Centre further went on to state that the workers at the Central Vista site will have “access to immediate medical attention and proper care which would otherwise have been difficult due to burdened medical infrastructure.”It has said that stay facility has been provided for about 250 out of 400 workers, who expressed their willingness to stay and continue work, and further said that the facility provides for strict implementation of Covid-19 protocol, including adherence to Covid-19 appropriate behaviour like sanitization, thermal screening, distancing, and masking.Advertisement The centre has submitted that the scope of work which is subject matter of this petition in question is not the Central Vista Project, but the redevelopment of the Central Vista Avenue (both sides of Rajpath) where Republic Day celebrations are held every year.It has also dismissed claims in the petition that the project was inaugurated by the Prime Minister and stated that in terms of the tender given, the work must be completed by Nov 10, 2021. In terms of safety of the workers, the affidavit states that the contractor has provided for health insurance of all workers.Advertisement Advertisement The affidavit also states that the 400 workers engaged at the site have been there since well before the curfew was imposed on Apr 19, and that permission for the transport of material and labour from Sarai Kale Khan to the work site was granted for the period between Apr 19-30.Questioning the intentions and bona fides of the petitioner the centre stated that, while there are construction activities and projects going on in 16 locations in the capital, the petitioner had only gone after Central Vista.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The petitioner had earlier moved the Supreme Court and then the Delhi High Court seeking urgent hearing of the matter. The court has agreed to hear the case tomorrow.The petition is being argued by Sr. Adv. Sidharth Luthra.It seeks suspension of all kinds of construction activity in relation to the Central Vista Redevelopment Project in compliance of the orders issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority in wake of the Covid-19 surge in the national capital.Moved by Anya Malhotra and Sohail Hashmi, it highlights that the construction of the aforesaid project has a “super spreading potential and threat” to the workers who are being exposed to the infection on a daily basis while working and that too without payment.Calling it “relentless, unmindful and reckless act” of the Union of India and Central Public Works Department, the plea states that such an act of carrying on the Project posing threat to the lives of the citizens of Delhi has “the potential of being a super spreader and is in clear breach and violation of the Orders passed by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority.” “The construction of the Project cannot be equated to an essential activity. There is no exigency whatsoever in the construction of the Project and there is no reason why the same cannot be suspended at a time when Delhi is facing an unprecedented health crisis. There is no rational basis to differentiate between workers engaged in the construction of the Project and workers engaged in any other construction work. It cannot be stated that the construction work being carried out as a part of the Project is any more essential than the construction of other public services,” the plea further states.TagsDelhi High Court Covid-19 Protocol Central Vista Workers Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

NSSA 2M Lab Supports USS Cole

View post tag: Cole View post tag: £2M View post tag: Lab For the second consecutive year, NSSA’s total repairs surpassed the totals of all other Navy Intermediate Maintenance Activities.“NSSA’s 2M Lab tests and repairs circuit cards and electronic modules for the ships in the Atlantic, 5th and 6th Fleets,” said Electronics Technician (ET) 1st Class Jeremy Ancell, NSSA 2M Lab leading petty officer. “We were able to trouble shoot 12,000 electronics cards in FY13.”The lab spends anywhere from two to 16 hours trouble shooting an individual electronics card or system component that comes into the lab for repair. “We run signature analysis on cards that come into the lab that are assumed to be bad. Through our analog signature analysis display monitors, we are able to see what signals are being sent from the combined components and we know what those components’ signatures should look like. If the signatures are different, then we are able to tell which components have gone bad. This allows us to trouble shoot without having to actually be in the system,” said Ancell.Once an electronics card has been trouble shot and the proper repairs made, the card is then sent back to the ship for Operational Testing (OP Test). If the card does not pass the OP Test, the ship is able to order a new electronics card at that point. This is where the NSSA 2M lab excels, as roughly 89 percent of their repairs pass OP Testing once the card is placed back into the troubled system. “We do not close the maintenance job until we receive the OP Test results from the ship on the particular circuit card or system component,” said NSSA’s 2M/Module Test and Repair Lab Supervisor Laura Petty. “If the OP Test is not satisfactory, we do not take credit for the repair.”NSSA’s 2M Lab is also able to aid ships in need of specialty parts since its lab has abundant in house recourses and the ability to reach out to other labs and support facilities to procure certain items.“We have a couple hundred thousand individual components in our on hand piece parts inventory that we are able to use every day, which makes us a valuable asset to the ships on the waterfront in need of timely repair to their systems,” said Ancell.Attention to detail and the ability to create processes that effectively assess damaged electronics is what has led the NSSA 2M lab to its continued success. “I spent 14 years helping with the development of test routines for the 2M labs, so I knew that the test routines were unable to perform dynamic tests,” said Petty. “We then created a new process in February 2011 that combined dynamic testing with static testing which greatly improved our capabilities.”NSSA’s 2M lab consists of 15 ETs and three civilian technicians and is located in Building LF-18 on Naval Station Norfolk. “We have such great technicians that do a wonderful job learning and following our procedures. They all strive for excellence. It is very rewarding to do this job and to have a positive impact on the Fleet,” said Petty.[mappress]Press Release, March 18, 2014; Image: Wikimedialast_img read more
