And The Capitalist hears that among those competing on the track will be a surprisingly large number of City types, enjoying a bit of a break from the daily grind.Orange chief executive Tom Alexander will be there taking a 1951 Aston Martin DB2 for an adrenaline-fuelled spin; former peer Baron Laidlaw, the businessman who earlier this year refused to become domiciled in the UK for tax purposes, will be hopping over from Monaco to get behind the wheel of a Maserati 250S; and Shaun Lynn, the president of inter-dealer broker BGC Partners, will be driving his own 1961 lightweight Jaguar E-type.JCB chairman Sir Anthony Bamford’s rare and pricey 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO is being driven by his son Joe, while Tesco group strategy director and BSkyB non-executive Andrew Higginson is leaving the driving to the professionals. He’s entered his 1959 Austin A40, which he’s entrusting to the capable hands of racing driver Oliver Gavin.SPINNING AROUNDSimon Lewis, former Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s spokesman until the general election earlier this year, is set to step through a new set of doors at the beginning of October. .Lewis, who had been director of communications at Number 10 for almost a year before the coalition came into power, is to lead the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME).As chief executive of AFME – created out of the merger of LIBA and SIFMA Europe – he will be tasked with lobbying regulatory and government officials on behalf of the industry.Earlier in his career Lewis spent a period in financial PR and lengthy stints at Vodafone and Centrica. In contrast, after the election, he spent just a couple of months in an interim communications advisory role at UKTI.BEER GOGGLESIn zooms an email containing lengthy ruminations from Unicredit’s resident economist Alexander Kock… on Munich’s upcoming Oktoberfest, of all things.Kock is up in arms over the cost of heading to Oktoberfest, which is apparently climbing up at a much steeper rate than the general consumer price index. In order to calculate how much steeper, he’s developed a Wiesn Visitor Price Index, breaking down the cost of visiting to two Mass (two litres) of beer and half a grilled chicken, plus the price of public transport.“The development of the individual price components reveals that prices have risen disproportionately since 1985,” Kock writes, adding that beer has risen the fastest, by over four per cent per year. The upshot? Oktoberfest’ll cost you, 3.4 per cent more than last year, to be precise – and well above the expected inflation rate of 1.2 per cent.Luckily, to ease the pain of the actual hangover, Kock also kindly included a ten-point guide to avoiding feeling like death the morning after – water, eating plenty of sausages to soak up the alcohol, you know the drill. If all else fails, an hourly dose of vegetable broth should do the trick for the remaining beer toxins, as well as copious amounts of chocolate and pizza.“Of course – to quote Benjamin Franklin – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” Kock muses. “But experience teaches that this is easier said than done…” Quite.SADDLE SOREA cautionary tale from the City with regard to the so-called “Boris bikes”, courtesy of Baker Tilly’s cheery head of capital markets Chilton Taylor.Taylor tells me he’s been on the bike trail for four days so far, though only the first of those days has been entirely successful. On the second day, he encountered three separate bikes which could not be released from their docking stations, while on the third day, the gears failed half way through his journey back home.On the fourth day, he rose again to the challenge, but passed four empty stations before having to walk a mile to find a bike. Adding insult to injury, Taylor then proceeded to ride for a grand total of two minutes in exuberant style before his trousers split down the seams. Best stick to the Tube in future?IRON WOMANFinally, congratulations to Berwin Leighton Paisner’s resident exercise junkie, real estate finance lawyer Jill Parker. I hear Parker won the World Amateur Triathlon Championships in Hungary at the weekend – coming first in the 30-34 Olympic-distance women’s race by over three minutes and competing against 2,800 athletes from around the globe. That’s a 1.5km swim, a 40km bike ride and a 10km run, just to drill it home for the faint-hearted.

Japan’s offload king Tim Lafaele on his wrestling inspiration

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Japan centre is famed for slick passing but exploits in the ring have spurred him on Asked to recall his favourite offload, he quickly responds that his flick against Russia in the World Cup opener was a moment to treasure. For those who had followed Japan in the build-up, playing with such freedom as they would go on to do against European powers like Ireland and Scotland should not have been a surprise.Related: Inside the vital 24 hours before Japan v Scotland“The coaches, Jamie Joseph and Tony Brown, encourage boys to play with their own style,” he explains. “It’s good feet, they encourage the boys to have a crack all the time. And it’s in games, not just at training. Having the confidence from the coaches means heaps when you go out to express yourself.“Tony Brown, when he takes our backs and we’re doing passing drills, we’ll be doing normal passes and he’ll chuck in, ‘Nah, boys, this time all the passes have to be around the back – keep practising that.’ So everyone’s trying it and most guys have one good arm and one bad arm…!”Lafaele says he was surprised when Joseph and Brown first called him up to the Japan set-up, but he has been nurtured and encouraged since. He made his debut in 2016 and has started 22 of his 23 Tests. And while Fale has helped him set goals, he has had plenty of on-field mentors too. Tim Bateman and Andy Ellis have helped him out, while seeing Dan Carter at close quarters was also beneficial.In Europe: Playing against England in 2018 (Getty Images)Then there is the coach work of Wayne Smith at the Steelers, who Lafaele praises for his communication skills, his rapport with the athletes. Asked why Smith is so coveted, so influential, the back adds: “You’ve got all these other coaches trying to make up moves and stuff but if you run, use hands, you’ve just got to be square. It’s running good lines. It’s keeping stuff simple so the boys can understand easily and execute easily.”During lockdown, though, clubs have been good at letting Japanese Test players focus on programmes remotely, to align with national plans. Lafaele has been back in Auckland, helping out his family there, but he has his eyes set on a bright future for the Brave Blossoms. Key to that, for him, is Japan getting to compete with the best of Europe in November.“I’m pretty excited and keen to get involved if that tournament does go ahead,” Lafaele says of unconfirmed stories about Japan’s involvement in an eight-team tournament in Europe in November. “I want to carry on that momentum from last year but also our boys are working hard at the moment as well.”He believes that after the highs of the World Cup and the buzz around Japanese rugby – it was an interesting experience to be recognised on the way into Wrestle Kingdom, for example – it is time to capitalise. He also wants to improve on his game, being smarter and more ruthless at the contact area while maintaining his ability to slip a pass. Think of the savvy Conrad Smith, he says.It’s time to show off a bit more of his ring craft. Can’t get to the shops?

On the field of play, though, Lafaele is a willing showman. Offload king Tim Lafaele on his wrestling inspirationLike oh-so many Samoan kids, Tim Lafaele was a fan of wrestler Dwayne Johnson growing up. He could smell what The Rock was cooking.Yet the story of his early life was one punctuated by transition and rugby. Lafaele was sent to Auckland at just four to be adopted by his uncle, while his father remained in Samoa, hoping young Timothy would prosper abroad. Having missed out on the Auckland rugby academy, in his last year at De La Salle College, Lafaele would get the opportunity to move to Japan, for a four-year scholarship at Yamanashigakuin University.Today, he is settled. It has been 11 years since Lafaele, 28, left for Japan and in 2019 his offloading antics for the Brave Blossoms on an incredible 2019 Rugby World Cup sent tongues wagging. And all the way there it was rugby propelling him, the pursuit of a professional contract the initial motivator.He would move to Fukuoka to join the Coca-Cola Red Sparks out of university and then later the Kobe Kobelco Steelers, as well as featuring for the Sunwolves and of course the Japan national team.“I’d never heard of it at the time,” Lafaele says of Japanese rugby scholarships and his early experiences. “But when I got there, there were so many other guys doing it.“I didn’t know much about Japan – all I knew was the big city, the big lights. But when I went there it was a totally different part of Japan, out in the country! It was a bit of a shock at the start as I didn’t know how to speak Japanese.“The training was a lot different to New Zealand too. It was long. We’d have three or four hour-long training sessions in the afternoon. We’d do training in the morning before you go to class and after that the three or four-hour training.”World Cup wonder: Offloading during Japan’s win against Ireland (Getty Images)Pushed by his family to go out and see the world for himself, he relished the rugby opportunity. However, we all crave something familiar and it is here where the life of a wrestler really captured him.Toks ‘Bad Luck’ Fale is a founding member of the Bullet Club stable of performers, in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He is also a De La Salle alumnus who took up a Japanese university scholarship and went on to play professional rugby in the country, at the Fukuoka Sanix Blues (now Munukata), before injury curtailed his career and he turned to a life of grappling. Fale has served as something of an inspiration to Lafaele.The centre says of his friend: “In my last year of high school we went to a tournament in Japan. He (Fale) stayed in the area, in Fukuoka, and I met him there. We kept in contact. Then when I went over to Japan for university I contacted him.“He basically helped me, talked to me when I needed help or extra motivation. He’d tell me to keep writing my goals down and to aim for them.“When I first went over to Japan in 2010, that’s when he was a ‘young lion’ – that’s what they call them when they start going into the dojo – and he’d just started up then. He made his debut that year. Starting out he was at the bottom but it only took him like a couple years until he was at the top with the Bullet club. Seeing him do that, man it just motivated me to try to do the same with my rugby.“Seeing the struggles he went through to get to where he is now motivates most of the guys from my school when they see his story.”Inspiration: Lafaele and Tui temporarily join the Bullet Club (pic: Tim Lafaele)Shortly after the World Cup, the 6ft 5in and 130kg-plus Fale invited Lafaele and team-mate Hendrik Tui to sit ringside for an event at Wrestle Kingdom. Then closer to time, Fale asked the pair if they would like to walk the competitors out to the ring.The two rugby stars were jacked at the offer, but when they got backstage it dawned on them that they did not know the proper etiquette for such a role. Panicking, they laughed and asked each other at the curtain, “How are we going to do this?!” Ring kings: Lafaele (left) with Hendrik Tui (far right) at Wrestle Kingdom (pic: Tim Lafaele) last_img read more

Jonah Lomu Documentary – Part 2

first_imgThursday Oct 2, 2008 Jonah Lomu Documentary – Part 2 Following on from our recent posting of Part 1 of the Jonah Lomu short documentary , the much anticipated Part 2 of this insightful video features more thrilling action of the legend in action, with plenty of tries and behind the scenes commentary. If you haven’t been able to watch Part 1 yet, please make sure you do as these two clips combined make for a fantastic 30 minutes of high intensity footage that will bring back many memories for some, and astound others. Kicking off with the sensational 1999 World Cup performance where he terrorised England once again, who could ever forget the words of Keith Quinn as Lomu barged over the tryline to score. The Semi-Final against France in the same year will be remembered for two things – France’s incredible comeback victory, and Jonah Lomu. Lomu was a man against boys as his pace, power, and grit combined to bash off all in front of him, including big french number eight Abdel Benazzi. We then follow Lomu as his move to Wellington makes a huge impact, both literally and figuratively. Along with teamates Tana Umaga and Christian Cullen, Lomu is simply unstoppable the majority of the time, with the majority of defenders almost opting to get out of the way rather than stand in front of the runaway train. Jonah’s ability to offload in the tackle, providing the scoring pass, was one of his most fascinating aspects, as he provided many tries for team mates in that manner. It was an element of his play that back then, and even today, sets him apart from the other big wingers of the game. It’s sad that at his current age of 33, Jonah should still be out there doing what he loves, but hasn’t been able to. Destiny saw it otherwise, and what we’re left with is fantastic memories of the man who was the games first real superstar of global proportions. Jonah single handedly changed rugby, and for that, the great man deserves all the praise and respect shown to him as he enters the next chapter of his life. The footage doesn’t go into Jonah’s years of suffering with the devastating illness that effectively ended his career, but that’s probably for the best as we want to remember the good times. We hope you enjoyed this awesome two part documentary.Time: 14:24 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.

The Committee has stated that the “shocking” incident is an assault on humanity and needs to be addressed by taking strict action against the errant officials. Shri. Jeyaraj and his son, Shri. Bennicks were arrested by the Sathankulam police on June 19, allegedly for violating lockdown restrictions and further for misbehaving with on-duty police personnel. The two were remanded to Judicial custardy at Sub Jail, Kovilpatti, on June 20, 2020, and died on the following days, allegedly due to police excesses and lack of proper medical care. Expressing its “deep anguish and dismay” on the tragic incident, the SCAORA said, “Since the competent authorities are stated to be examining the conduct of the police, of the doctor in not giving them proper medical attention in the government hospital and of the concerned judicial magistrate sending them in remand without due process in the said case, the SCAORA is, at present, confining itself to condemning the custodial torture and deaths as crimes against humanity, and calling upon the authorities to take the strictest possible action, including prosecution for commission of criminal offences, against such officers who are found to be guilty.” Jeyaraj-Bennix Custodial Deaths : Questions About Lapses Of Magistrate In Ordering Remand The Association has called upon all concerned to take immediate steps to ensure that the police and the magistracy across the country give respect to the constitutional guarantees of an accused, adhere with the provisions of CrPC and comply with various directions and guidelines formulated by the Supreme Court in a catena of cases, including though not limited to arrest, detention, humane custodial treatment and bail. “The SCAORA is of the view that the need for the implementation of the police reforms, as has been directed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, has assumed grave urgency to prevent the recurrence of such shocking cases and to maintain the Rule of Law,” a resolution passed by the Association on Monday states. The matter has come under judicial scanner in a suo moto case registered by the Madras High Court and a division bench comprising Justices P.N. Prakash and B. Pugalendhi has ordered a judicial probe. Custodial Deaths : What Is The Procedure For Inquiry? Meanwhile, the Director General of Tamil Nadu Police has issued fresh guidelines (SOP) for arrest/remand of accused persons.

Global warming caused by afforestation in the Southern Hemisphere

first_imgUsing an earth system model of intermediate complexity (EMIC), the McGill Paleoclimate Model-2 (MPM-2), this paper examines the climatic biogeophysical effects of afforestation in the southern hemisphere (SH) with a focus on land–atmosphere interactions and the modeling influence of the dynamic ocean in the background of the earth system. Increased forest cover affects the albedo feedback and the supply of water, which in turn influences temperature. These changes largely control the net impact of the SH afforestation based on latitudinal band. In response to afforestation in 0–15°S and 0–40°S, the local surface air temperature significantly increases at a maximum value around 5°S during autumn. This warming is attributed to decreased land surface albedo dominating over enhanced precipitation which is resulted from increased tree cover. Forest expansions in 15–30°S and 30–40°S induce diminished land surface albedo and precipitation locally, leading to a warming around 25°S during spring and a warming around 35°S in winter, respectively. The maximum differences in the modeled responses of afforestation on latitude band basis are seen to be 7–10 times larger for the same season. Our results show that capturing how and where biogeophysical changes due to forest expansion warm a specific region requires an accurate global simulation of afforestation geographically. This provides potential for further improving detection and attribution of regional afforestation effects. Furthermore, a dynamic ocean simulation results in a warming compared with a fixed one over most forcing originating areas in response to afforestation. We demonstrate that unless the dynamic ocean is considered we risk influenced conclusions regarding the drivers of temperature changes over regions of afforestation.last_img read more

A $2.5 Million Question: Fix the 48-Year-Old Ocean City Primary School?

first_imgSchool officials made a presentation to a sparse crowd Wednesday evening as a March 11 school bond referendum approaches.The election will ask Ocean City voters to approve borrowing $2,497,421 to help pay for a renovation of the Ocean City Primary School, which was built in 1965.The event was scheduled to provide information on the project and to allow the public to ask questions.The district has the opportunity to recover 40 percent of the cost through a state grant and to capitalize on low interest rates before they climb, according to School Business Administrator Pat Yacovelli. Ocean City will receive $2,399,279 from a state Regular Operating District (ROD) grant for school construction. New Jersey had not offered ROD grants for the previous four years.The total projected cost for the project is $6,653,368. With the state paying $2.4 million and the district contributing about $1.8 million from a capital reserve fund, voters will be asked to fund the remaining $2.5 million through a bond issue.The election will be 3 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 11. The project is planned for summer 2015.The school needs a new roof, heating and cooling systems, plumbing and electrical systems, windows and doors. Most classrooms have no air-conditioning, and some of the windows are 48-year-old originals, single-glazed and lined with asbestos.A new HVAC would be more energy-efficient and allow the school to control different zones within the school, according to Facilities Manager A.J. Nordt.“Our goal is to make the school safer and healthier,” Board of Education member Ray Clark said. “Promote a better learning environment.”If the referendum is successful, the owner of a $500,000 home in Ocean City would pay an extra $15.39 in school taxes annually for a bond issue period of 10 years, according to Yacovelli.A separate HVAC project at Ocean City High School is projected to cost $2.9 million and to be completed this summer.last_img read more
