Jack Willis to make England debut – and other Test talking points

Autumn Nations Cup Italy v Scotland Preview Expand Autumn Nations Cup Italy v Scotland Preview Take a bow: Jack Willis will win his first England cap against Georgia at Twickenham (Getty Images) Autumn Nations Cup Italy v Scotland Preview Italy… Autumn Nations Cup England v Georgia preview Jacob Whitehead looks ahead to a busy weekend of international rugby Collapse All you need to know about the opening… Autumn Nations Cup Ireland v Wales Preview Autumn Nations Cup Ireland v Wales Preview Expand Both teams have made multiple changes for this… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Autumn Nations Cup England v Georgia preview Power and panache on the Scottish wings Italy v Scotland, 12.45pm, Saturday 14 November, Stadio Artemio Franchi, Live on Amazon Prime (UK) and Premier Sports (Republic of Ireland) As much as I wanted to talk about Duncan Weir and his hairdo, I’ve spoken about Scotland fly-halves a lot recently, so, alas, will need to find a new topic.Onto new things, and one man’s misery is another man’s fortune. Sean Maitland’s exclusion from Gregor Townsend’s initial training squad, due to his misdemeanours on Barbarians duty, have opened up a space on the Scottish wing and Duhan van der Merwe has walked straight through the door.Van der Merwe plays rugby like an Olympic sprinter with horns, tilted forwards at 45 degrees each time he accelerates. The prospect of tackling him seems about as appealing as a six-month spell in Wormwood Scrubs. The reigning Pro14 Player of the Season, van der Merwe marked his debut against Georgia with a try and has clearly done enough in training to keep his high-class clubmate Blair Kinghorn out of the team.His power complements the pirouetting feet of Darcy Graham, whose excellent scoring record of seven tries in ten starts isn’t even the most impressive part of his game – the diminutive wing has proved himself a formidable defender of late.Double up: Darcy Graham scored two tries against Georgia last month (Getty Images)It’s that time of the rugby calendar when every week sees us predicting potential Lions selections – when was the last time you could get decent odds on every member of a Scottish back three making the squad?Jack Willis to make England debutEngland v Georgia, 3pm, Saturday 14 November, Twickenham, Live on Amazon Prime (UK) and Premier Sports (Republic of Ireland)On the ball: Jack Willis in action for Wasps (Getty Images)Eddie Jones teased the prospect of selecting a forward in the back-line (not as radical as it seems given the existence of Levani Botia) but has ultimately given us an England starting XV exciting enough that we can easily forget those mind games.In an era when we talk of players being promoted to Test rugby too soon, I can’t remember a player who has made their first appearance for England having dominated domestic rugby in a manner akin to Jack Willis.The Gallagher Premiership Player of the Season, a man with body position so good that a second career as a ballerina beckons, Willis’s debut has been as hotly anticipated as the coronavirus vaccine.This first appearance is two years overdue, with the Wasps flanker prevented from touring South Africa back in 2018 after a serious knee injury in that season’s Premiership semi-final. In the intervening period he’s been down in the mire with Wasps and dragged them back out again, playing like a 30-year-old veteran rather than a 23-year-old academy graduate.Choosing a back row from England’s current selection is like selecting blindfold from a box of Heroes – pick any three, it can’t go wrong. Jones has elected to throw ruck-hitting machine Maro Itoje into the mix at blindside to combat Georgia’s expected physicality, which will hopefully free up Willis to choose his battles. I don’t think he’ll lose many.First cap: Ollie Lawrence made his England debut against Italy in October (Getty Images)He’s managed to overshadow the first start of 21-year-old Ollie Lawrence, perhaps the most exciting English prospect at centre since a young Manu Tuilagi burst onto the scene just under a decade ago. Jack Willis to make England debut – and other Test talking pointsThe last time the home nations had a new competition to play in was with the advent of the Six Nations back in 2000. Twenty years later and they’re facing off in the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup, alongside France, Italy, Fiji and Georgia.While it has taken far too long for the big boys to let the latter two join them in the play area, it’s better late than never. Georgia have an exciting first fixture against England while it’s a real shame Fiji’s meeting with France has been cancelled.Lockdown may have hit the UK, but boredom won’t be a problem this weekend. Friday evening rugby? We’ve got it. Saturday morning rugby? That too. Saturday afternoon rugby? Present and correct.So, with three Autumn Nations Cup fixtures and a bonus breakfast of New Zealand v Argentina, what should we keep our eyes out for this weekend?Misfiring attack meets struggling defenceIreland v Wales, 7pm, Friday 13 November, Aviva Stadium, Live on Channel 4 & RTEShaun Edwards coached the Wales defence for 11 years. Byron Hayward coached the Wales defence for 11 months.Losing run: Wayne Pivac’s Wales team have lost five straight games (Getty Images)Wales head coach Wayne Pivac relieved Hayward of his duties last weekend, his long-time assistant departing after the team’s five consecutive losses. Despite this, it was still a surprise call – Hayward’s Wales have conceded fewer points than Edwards’s France this year.Nevertheless, Pivac has clearly made the area his main priority, having already dropped George North and Nick Tompkins after lacklustre performances against France three weeks ago. All eyes will be on his defensive unit now.But Pivac may count his blessings that his group are up against an Ireland attack that has been under fire, with their ageing half-backs under the microscope. Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton’s play was criticised against France on Halloween despite a creditable attacking performance, with Sexton attracting more ire for his very public dismay at being taken off.Head coach Andy Farrell has rung the changes. Murray has been replaced by Leinster’s Jamison Gibson Park at nine, with another recently qualified player in James Lowe making his Ireland debut.Massive changes to both the Irish attack and the Welsh defence; whichever adapts quickest will win.In-form Juan Imhoff returns for the Pumas New Zealand v Argentina, 6.10am, Saturday 14 November, Bankwest Stadium, Live on Sky SportsArgentina haven’t played a game for 13 months, last seen exiting the World Cup in the group stages last October. It’ll be some welcome back for the match-rusty Pumas in the Tri-Nations – they’re facing an All Blacks side, who, if they weren’t warm enough after four Tests in five weeks, will have a fire in their bellies after last weekend’s 24-22 loss to the Wallabies.Try time: Juan Imhoff scores for Racing 92 in the European Champions Cup (Getty Images)Most of Argentina’s players represent the Jaguares in Super Rugby, but the franchise was excluded from the various competitions that replaced the tournament due to coronavirus, meaning most of their squad haven’t played a competitive fixture since March. With that in mind, predicting their starting XV was no small feat.It’s a story of something old and something new for the Pumas, with Juan Imhoff, possibly the in-form winger in Europe, recalled to the side at the age of 32. The thinking man’s winger, a player so cerebral you wonder if he’d be better suited to chess, Imhoff was last seen dancing down the flank for Argentina back in the 2015 Rugby World Cup – where Irish fans will well remember his quality at international level…Inside him at centre will be a debutant, Santiago Chocobares, only 21 years old. Touted as a player as delicious as his name, the Rosario-born youngster has only made five appearances for the Jaguares but is being trusted by coach Mario Ledesma to face up opposite Jack Goodhue as the lynchpin of the Argentina midfield. His carries pack a punch – watch him rip a Georgian XV to shreds below in a performance more reminiscent of Kyle Sinckler than Kyle Eastmond.AUTUMN NATIONS CUP MATCH PREVIEWSlast_img read more

The private Cabin is situated near Tyinkrysset, Filefjell, on a beautiful site at the border of Jotunheimen National Park. Our main approach was to make as little impact on the site as possible. The weather can be quite rough with loads of snow, so it has been important to shelter the chalet from wind and snow. Based on the result of extensive wind studies, the roof is shaped like the surrounding landscape, integrated to the terrain, making it easier for both the wind and snow to drift over.Save this picture!Mountain DiagramsSave this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderThe L-shaped volume has a semi-closed wall next to the entrance that opens up towards the magnificent view from the more private part of the cabin.

It’s fantastic to see the NGO sector recognising the value in high-quality apprenticeships as an alternative to hiring university graduates. Everyone joining the programme will get to work with an expert coach in 1:1 and group settings, can attend boot camps and workshops, and will get access to the thriving on and offline WhiteHat community of socials, masterclasses, and networking.”  434 total views,  2 views today Melanie May | 16 October 2019 | News International development network Bond has announced an apprenticeship scheme programme aimed at increasing diversity in the international development sector.Run in partnership with tech start-up WhiteHat, the programme will allow NGOs to run apprenticeships and will have a dual focus on increasing diversity across the charity sector at entry-level and by upskilling existing employees through access to training in newer areas such as data analysis and digital skills.WhiteHat offers an alternative to university through apprenticeships, matching non-graduate talent to opportunities at some of the UK’s top companies, accompanied by job-relevant applied learning over the course of the apprenticeship.From November 2019, Bond will be running cohorts for its member charities every quarter, for both entry-level staff and existing employees, starting with Data Analytics and Business Associate apprenticeships via the partnership with WhiteHat. These will then expand to include Digital Marketing, Project Management, Leadership and Management, Accounting and Software Engineering.Stephanie Draper, CEO of Bond, said:“Getting an entry level role at an NGO can be very competitive and historically this has meant they have gone to people with extensive higher education or one type of socio-economic background. Over time this has led to a lack of diversity across the sector so we’re delighted to be able to offer an alternative route into NGOs through apprenticeships.“WhiteHat specialises in finding diverse, high-potential young people and offers them a different path to a great career other than the traditional university route. This partnership will bring in a new generation of diverse talent to the NGO sector.”Euan Blair, Co-founder and CEO of WhiteHat said: Advertisementcenter_img  435 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Bond launches apprenticeship scheme to increase diversity in UK international development sector 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.

Cuba’s fundamental human rights

first_imgLatin American School of Medicine (ELAM) class of 2015 at Karl Marx Theater, Havana.What is a “human right”? Working-class and oppressed people define the term “human rights” differently than the capitalists, businesses, banks and multinational corporations that exploit human labor for profit.For International Human Rights Day, Dec. 10, the U.S.-based National Network on Cuba wrote a statement, “Cuba: Where real human rights are the foundation of society.”The NNOC contrasted the global respect for the well-lived life of socialist Cuba’s historic leader Fidel Castro with the insulting reactions from the U.S. president-elect and others who wrongly assert that the Cuban leader’s legacy was the denial of “human rights.” The NNOC also condemned the U.S. blockade of Cuba, in itself a massive genocidal human rights violation.The NNOC pointed out that in the U.S., unlike in Cuba, “the president-elect will lead a country where police kill Black and Latin people — men, women, children, transgender — with impunity. …2015 U.S. graduates.“As winter begins to bite … over 500,000 will be sleeping on U.S. streets, under bridges, families with children will be living in cars. Not in Cuba.“The average U.S. 2016 college graduate owes $37,172 in student loans. Not in Cuba.“In the U.S., millions are evicted from their homes because of skyrocketing rents and mortgages. Not in Cuba.“According to a Kaiser Family Foundation survey … in 2016, 83 percent of [U.S.] workers have a deductible — an amount that they have to pay themselves for medical care before insurance covers it — with an average of $1,478. For the first time since 1999, more than half of workers must pay more than $1,000 in medical costs before insurance coverage begins. Not in Cuba.“According to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Institute of Literacy, in an April 2016 study, 14 percent, or 32 million adults, can’t read in [the U.S.]. Not in Cuba.“Trump openly advocates waterboarding and other forms of torture. … Since 2002, torture has been taking place at one location on the island: the territory illegally occupied by the U.S. military base in Guantánamo.“We assert that the Cuban Revolution is an excellent example of the implementation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights today. Cuba is a small, island country, with development hampered by centuries of colonialism and slavery. And despite having to endure to this day an economic, financial and commercial blockade that has lasted for over 56 years, one designed to impose hunger and privation on its people, the island remains a bright example of humanity to the world.“The full resources of Cuba are used to develop each individual Cuban to their fullest potential. Universal health care, free education through university, the right to employment, to housing — to dignity — is not only guaranteed but implemented.“Over $4 billion was wasted this year on the presidential campaign in the U.S. Just imagine for a moment what that money could have been spent on in terms of social improvements. Meanwhile, the people of Cuba enjoy free and fair elections untainted by financial influence. Every Cuban is registered to vote on their 16th birthday. Every vote is counted under the honest and watchful eyes of children. In addition to representation, the Cuban people are directly consulted about the direction of their society through community, union, women’s, agricultural, youth and other organizations. Their views are heeded. Transgender individuals have been elected to represent their area. …“On Saturday, Dec. 10, remember the fundamental human rights enjoyed in Cuba, where the 1959 Revolution converted military barracks into schools. One of them is the Latin American School of Medicine, where youth from underserved communities around the world — including some from the U.S. — learn to be doctors for free, then go home to serve the people.“Yes, that is real human rights.”LaBash is one of five co-chairs of the National Network on Cuba.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Speakers from the Texas Agrilife extension service talked to residents during the seminar about the importance of water conservation through landscaping.A speaker from Saturday’s panel, Steve Huddleston, said population growth in Texas has a big influence on why people should conserve water.“Water is an issue for us,” he said. “Our population is increasing, we need to conserve water, and we all need to think of the best ways to do that.”In addition to saving water, this fall’s event featured lectures about attracting birds to gardens, growing water-saving perennials, and combatting various types of plant disease.A panel of the seminar’s speakers spent time answering the gardening questions the attendees asked, often injecting humor into their answers.One attendee asked the speakers about removing particularly pesky bamboo.“Our best suggestion for bamboo is that – if you have it – your only option is to move,” said panelist Bob Beyer, prompting laughs from the audience.Teri Jones and Betsy Currie have been gardening for over 40 years. The women said they attended the seminar because it offers new gardening ideas and attracts interesting people.Currie said that for new gardeners, perseverance is key.“Stick with it, and never give up,” she said.The next YardSmart seminar will take place on March 5, 2016.

First-Time Homebuyers Mortgage Lending 2016-02-23 Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe February 23, 2016 1,487 Views Related Articles in Featured, News Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago If research analysis from BuildZoom is any proof, first-time homebuyers have more problems to face than just dwindling supply and higher demand: Income requirements for mortgage lending are also on the rise.According to a recent blog posted by Issi Romem, chief economist at BuildZoom, the average household income of first-time buyers has seen a huge jump since the housing boom of the early 2000s.Romem used stats from the Annual Social and Economics Supplement of the Current Population Survey—a joint release from the U.S. Census and the Bureau of Labor Statistics—to analyze average household income of first-time homebuyers since 1999. According to his research, in 1999, the first-time buyer income averaged in around $86,000, gradually dropping to under $80,000 in the peak of the housing boom in 2005.“While income in the general population remained fairly stable during the housing boom, first-time buyers’ income dropped significantly,” Romem wrote in his post, “The Rising Income of First-time Home Buyers.” “The ease of borrowing during the boom allowed households that couldn’t previously afford a home to buy one, and the inclusion of such households among first-time buyers reduced the group’s average income.”Income remained low until the bust years later, when it slowly crept up once more. Today, the average first-time buyer income is right at 1999 levels yet again.“Although average household income fell during the Great Recession and has yet to fully recover, first-time buyers’ income substantially increased,” Romem said. “It spiked in 2008 when lending dried up at the peak of the financial crisis and then subsided in 2009 and 2010 when the First-Time Homebuyer Credit was in place, but overall it has risen, and is now back to its level circa 2000.”Though some may think first-time buyer income is on the rise because of widening wage gaps, Romem’s analysis proves this to be untrue.“The average first-time buyer at the peak of the housing boom was drawn from the 56th percentile of the income distribution,” Romem wrote, “whereas now she is drawn from the 59th. In other words, during the boom first-time buyers were able to step into homeownership from lower rungs of the socioeconomic ladder.”First-time homebuyer sales reflect these changing tides, too. According to Romem’s post, 2005 saw an all-time high of 3.2 million first-time buyers. In 2008, after the housing bust began, it dropped to under 2 million – and remains at that point to this day.Though this drop in first-time buying can certainly dampen the housing recovery, Romem said, there are also serious social implications to worry about, too.“The important thing to understand is that fluctuations in the number of first-time buyers go hand in hand with changes in their nature,” Romem said. “When buying a home gets more challenging it is the least financially able who drop out of the race first, and vice versa.
