Martin Johnson picks B&I Lions form players ahead of final Six Nations round

first_imgThursday Mar 16, 2017 Martin Johnson picks B&I Lions form players ahead of final Six Nations round Following another fascinating weekend of Six Nations rugby, World Cup winner Martin Johnson has shared his thoughts on who he think should be on the plane to New Zealand with the British & Irish Lions, breaking down each match by picking out the key players.  Johnson is convinced England centre Jonathan Joseph is now in pole position for this summer’s Lions tour after his stunning hat-trick last weekend against Scotland.Joseph was controversially axed by England boss Eddie Jones for the visit of Italy in round three of the Six Nations but the Bath centre, who started against France and Wales, showed just why he’s the Red Rose’s premier No.13 with a treble against the Auld Enemy.England secured the Six Nations title for a second successive year against Scotland last weekend and in the process equalled New Zealand’s longest Test winning run of 18 games.This weekend against Ireland, Jones’ men will have the opportunity to make history as they go in search of back-to-back Grand Slam titles and also a new world record of 19 consecutive Test wins.Perhaps the most competitive area of the present England side is in the second row – an area of the pack former England skipper Johnson knows all about.In the absence of George Kruis and with Saracen Maro Itoje moving into the number six jersey, Jones has employed Northampton’s Courtney Lawes alongside Joe Launchbury. Although wearing the No.5 jersey, Lawes has been packing down in the back row at scrum-time, while his all-round play in the loose is more reminiscent of a marauding back rower.Lions boss Gatland has promised to form the bulk of his tour selections on the form and fitness of those guys who have impressed during the Six Nations.England No.8 Billy Vunipola missed the opening three games through injury; only returning as a replacement against Scotland last weekend.He has been selected by England boss Jones from the start for the visit to Ireland this weekend and Johnson is not worried his elongated absence has affected his chances of touring New Zealand.    Johnson also spoke about who impressed him from Wales, Ireland and Scotland.Which Wales players showed Lions potential against Ireland?Which Ireland players showed Lions potential against Wales? Which Scotland players showed Lions potential against England?Martin Johnson is an Ambassador for British & Irish Lions Principal Partner Standard Life InvestmentsADVERTISEMENT 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.

Six months on from Olympics and still no refund of lottery cash

first_img Howard Lake | 13 February 2013 | News Tagged with: Big Lottery Fund Funding Law / policy Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The closing ceremony at the London Olympics took place six months ago, but still there is no sign that the Government will make good its promised refund of lottery cash to charities, according to the Directory of Social Change (DSC).The organisation’s Big Lottery Refund campaign aims to secure £425 million of the money taken from the Big Lottery Fund to pay for the London Olympics, and therefore diverted from charitable good causes across the UK. It has issued a dummy invoice to the Government for the outstanding sum marked “6 months overdue”. Over 3300 charities have now joined the Big Lottery Refund campaign. £150m offered in 2014DSC’s Chief Executive Debra Allcock Tyler said: “It is increasingly clear that hundreds of millions in the Olympic budget remain unspent. There is a clear moral case for the swift return of these funds to the lottery good causes which sacrificed to make the Games a success. Depriving communities and vulnerable people of vital support during these difficult times amounts to moral theft and cannot continue. The government needs to pay back the money that was borrowed now.”Sports Minister Hugh Robertson recently stated that up to £150 million in lottery cash taken for the Olympics could be returned to the lottery distributors in 2014. DSC argues that this is not enough and not soon enough.Supporters of the campaign are invited to download the ‘overdue invoice’ for £425 million and send it to the Prime Minister, Chancellor and Culture Secretary.www.biglotteryrefund.org.uk  20 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Six months on from Olympics and still no refund of lottery cash AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Israel prepares criminal invasion of Gaza

first_imgThousands of Palestinians and their supporters take to the streets of New York City in protest, July 9. WW photo: Sara FloundersJuly 9 — The Israeli apartheid state has called up as many as 40,000 reserve troops to prepare for an all-out invasion of the Gaza territory, where 1.5 million Palestinians live. Because of Israel’s blockade of Gaza, the territory has been described as “the largest open-air prison in the world.”Beginning July 7, Israeli planes and rockets killed 49 people and wounded another 450 in hundreds of strikes, according to Palestinian medical authorities on the morning of July 9. There is no sign that the Israeli regime intends to slow down this relentless assault on the civilian population of Gaza. On the contrary, elements in Israeli government circles are calling for a full re-occupation of Gaza.As often happens when there is a showdown in occupied Palestine, the major imperialist powers support Israel. On July 9, this included German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and French Ambassador to Israel Patrick Maisonnave, both of whom faulted the Palestinian organization Hamas for its retaliatory rocket strikes on Israeli territory from Gaza.Washington, which shares strategic interests with the Israeli settler state — it acts as an armed outpost of world imperialism at the center of the Middle East — consistently supports Israel at critical moments, even when it tries to claim the role of “honest broker” between the Palestinians and the Israeli state.WW photo: Sara FloundersIsraeli intransigence has frustrated all efforts to reach a negotiated settlement with the Palestinian Authority, which governs the West Bank. Following the failure of these talks, the PA and Hamas, which governs Gaza, formed a national unity government that took office June 2. Since that agreement, the Israeli government has stepped up its provocation of the Palestinians.These provocations include increasing illegal settlements inside the West Bank territories — signaling future annexation of these areas — and using ultra-reactionary settlers to assault Palestinians.When three missing settler teenagers were found shot dead at the end of June, the Israeli government seized on this incident to arrest more than 400 Palestinians, raid thousands of homes and shoot five people dead. It brought back the punitive demolition of Palestinian homes, a practice mostly discontinued since 2005.Tel Aviv loudly blamed Hamas for the teens’ deaths and then bombed Gaza 34 times. Hamas, elected to govern Gaza, denies any responsibility. Israel’s last attempt to unseat Hamas, a massive bombing in 2008-09, resulted in the deaths of 1,417 Palestinians and nine Israelis. (Palestinian Center for Human Rights)On July 2, a group of ultra-right Israelis  tortured and murdered a young Palestinian, allegedly in retaliation for the three deaths — although there is still no evidence about who killed the three. Six of the Israeli fascists have been arrested for the murder of the Palestinian.Meanwhile, the heavily armed and technologically developed Israeli army is bombing a virtually unarmed population in Gaza.While imperialist governments are backing the Israeli state, popular organizations around the world are taking actions to show solidarity with the people of Gaza.In New York, an ad hoc coalition of many progressive, anti-war and anti-imperialist organizations is demonstrating on July 9. After gathering at the Israeli Mission to the United Nations on Second Avenue and 42nd Street, the protesters are then marching to the News Corp Building at 48th Street and 6th Avenue. The building houses the New York Post, Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, all reactionary media owned by Rupert Murdoch.For background on the struggle over Gaza, read “Gaza, Symbol of Resistance,” edited by Joyce Chediac, gazaresistancebook.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Linkedin TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ ReddIt Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award printDespite a stellar performance from outside hitter Élan McCall, TCU volleyball could not match the firepower of Oklahoma Friday night. After sweeping the Sooners at home in September, the Horned Frogs dropped the match on the road 3-1 (25-23, 22-25, 25-17, 25-15) to fall to 14-10 on the season and 5-8 in Big 12 play.Just like the first meeting between the two teams, the first set was tight from the start.  After the Sooners jumped back to an early lead, McCall followed a kill with an impressive block to bring the Frogs within one.After missing six matches with an injury, McCall played limited minutes Nov. 3 against Iowa State. Tonight, the freshman looked 100 percent, totaling an outstanding stat line of 18 kills, 17 digs, three blocks, and two service aces in the match.Outside hitter Élan McCall (1) made her presence known on Friday with 18 kills and 17 digs. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoDespite TCU’s fight, they were not able to finish the set, and Oklahoma won 25-23 to take a 1-0 lead in the match.TCU would open the second set even stronger than the first. A kill by outside hitter Anna Walsh put TCU up 10-8, and TCU never trailed again, winning the set 25-22 to even the match at 1-1.Walsh would finish the match with 18 kills and three blocks.The Frogs’ momentum would not carry into the third set, as head coach Jill Kramer was forced to call her first timeout with her team down 6-2 and then her final timeout down 10-3.TCU could not keep up with the Sooner hitters and Oklahoma would go on to an easy 25-17 third set win, regaining the match lead 2-1.In the fourth set, Walsh put the Frogs up 3-2 momentarily with her 16th kill of the match, but it was all the Sooners from there. Oklahoma finished the set on a crushing 7-2 run to cruise to a 3-1 match victory.The loss drops TCU’s away record to 1-7.Setter Tori Dilfer continued to play well for the Frogs with 42 assists, 15 digs, and an ace, while libero Berklie Baker led TCU on defense with 21 digs.Setter Tori Dilfer (4) tied a career-high with 15 digs. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Horned Frogs will play their final road match of the season next week when they face West Virginia. First serve is set for 6 p.m. on Nov. 14 in Morgantown.last_img read more

A graduate of Harding University, he has covered numerous topics across the real estate and default servicing industries. Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. Despite expectations that the Federal Reserve will significantly ease monetary policy through the end of the year, the Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group expects 2019 and 2020 real GDP growth to slow to 2.1% and 1.6%, respectively. This prediction has been driven by an inverted yield curve, weak business investment, waning consumer and business sentiment, and ongoing trade and global growth concerns. The ESR Group also predicted that the Fed will cut interest rates by 25 basis points in July, followed by another 25 basis points in December. “As the current U.S. expansion celebrates its tenth anniversary, it does so under an economic backdrop of growing domestic and global uncertainty – and slowing growth,” said Fannie Mae SVP and Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “The heightened uncertainty, stemming in part from the seemingly intractable trade dispute between the U.S. and China, appears to have reduced business’ investment incentive, which is now poised to be a material drag on growth over the forecast period. With consumer spending the principal remaining GDP growth driver, in addition to the recent re-inversion of the yield curve suggesting that market participants expect economic activity to slow further, we believe that the Fed will take a more accommodative posture beginning with a rate cut at the July meeting of the FOMC.”The ESR Group notes that housing continues to benefit from the lower mortgage rate environment. Total origination volume is expected to improve 7% in 2019 on the back of a surge in refinances and moderate house price growth. Refinance activity is expected to represent 32% of originations in 2019, up from 29% in 2018 and more than 2%age points higher than was forecast last month.“Housing remains a net positive to the economy, as the industry anticipates growth fueled by strong household balance sheets, low mortgage rates, and a surge in refinance activity,” Duncan continued. “However, the housing industry still doesn’t have an answer for the related problems of low supply and affordability. While home price appreciation has largely moderated – particularly compared to the recent past – and demand for modestly priced homes has proven strong and resilient, the lack of affordable inventory continues to cap sales and limit the potential pool of would-be homeowners.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agocenter_img Sign up for DS News Daily Tagged with: Economy Fannie Mae HOUSING The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn July 16, 2019 1,060 Views Previous: What is Causing the Decline in Single-Family Authorizations?
