All were from the insurance industry (a hotbed for testosterone-fuelled aggression if ever there was one), including William Dudley from Hiscox, Liam Tarf from Miller Insurance Services, Kevin Carlier from Aon and Stewart Cruickshank from Aon Benfield.Mind you, the muscled fighters weren’t the only draw at “The Swing!” event – said sweaty punters were also treated to a special performance by Mitch Winehouse, father of Amy, who’s just released his own album “Rush of Love”.DOCTOR’S ORDERSWhen it comes to the décor of company headquarters, most firms plump for the safe option – a classical painting here, a bronze sculpture there, perhaps a Damien Hirst for the really daring.Not so John Wriglesworth, managing director of the eponymous public relations consultancy, who managed to procure himself an original “Dalek” from the BBC’s Dr Who archives for the reception of his offices just off Fleet Street.Not only that, but a little bird tells me he’s now trying to persuade his staff round to the idea of altering the model’s voicebox so that, instead of the usual Dalek cry of “Exterminate, exterminate,” it will cry: “Communicate, communicate”…It’s certainly a novel way of bringing a smile to the faces of clients on an otherwise bleak Monday morning.SACRE BLEURugby aficionados were yesterday horrified by the news that the Rugby Football Union has enlisted a new company to provide all of the clothing for the England team in the form of Eden Park – a French clothing firm, sacré bleu! Perhaps the RFU should have taken its cue from the England football team and returned in its hour of need to Marks & Spencer, where chief executive Marc Bolland would doubtless have pulled out all the stops to lend a hand.SEA FARERIt’s off to the high seas again for Helical Bar chief executive Mike Slade, fresh from helping to organise the largest ever coordinated property industry charity day last week to raise money for “Land Aid” – including charity gigs, cake baking sales and abseiling off 40-ft buildings.Slade’s just as well-known for his escapades on his ICAP Leopard racing yacht, which is competing in the Rolex Middle Sea Race from Malta this weekend.As well as being a strong helmsman, Slade is certainly sympathetic to the City’s attitude to the sport of sailing, commenting yesterday that his love of this particular race stems from the “exceptional hospitality” at the Royal Malta Yacht Club”. Bottoms up.WAR MONGERINGBrave words from John Taylor, the chief investment officer of foreign exchange risk manager FX Concepts, who sent out a missive to clients yesterday detailing how the current economic situation in the US is eerily similar to the climate in Europe immediately before the breakout of World War II.According to Taylor, the US equity market’s rise over this September – an impressive 8.8 per cent – is its best performance for the ninth month of the year since the September of 1939.“To me, the parallels are ominous,” he continued. “What were those people thinking back in 1939? Could a coming world war have that positive an impact on the economy and on markets? They must have been crazy… but what are we thinking of now? A war has just begun…”He’s talking of a currency war triggered by the US beginning QE2, of course – an event which the Fed has been talking about for months.“Bernanke, like Hitler seven decades ago, had been warning everyone who would listen,” Taylor continued, seemingly oblivious to the implicit faux-pas of comparing anyone to a genocidal dictator, even if the parallel does involve something as benign foreign exchange.GEEK SQUADA dire warning for the banking sector, courtesy of IT recruitment firm Greythorn. The government’s new focus on the prevention of cyber terrorism will have unintended consequences for the banks, according to Greythorn – apparently, there are only 2,000 people in the country qualified to perform top-level IT security and cyber forensics roles, meaning that a war for talent is likely to ensue over said computer geeks in the near future between current employers and the blue-chip security services.

Gnashing and crashing: when rugby gets bite-y

first_img Flashing gnashers: Dylan Hartley shows us his pearly whites during the 2012 6 Nations, after which he was bannedBy RW StaffIT WAS a headline writer’s dream at the weekend as football’s pantomime villain Luis Suarez revealed his bloomers once again, embarrassing himself and everyone else associated with him by biting an opposition player, Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. Rightly, the papers were smeared with disgust. Sacking, suspensions and solitary were mentioned and the puns kept rolling.Rugby cannot afford to paint itself as a sport where this would never happen for it is no shy, retiring innocent when it comes to biting. Indeed, some of the burly buggers have a proven to have an, ahem, appetite when it comes to gnawing on the opposition.He bled a lot to be fair: Sean FitzpatrickA Springbok bites a KiwiTests between South Africa and New Zealand are often slobberknockers. Amidst the gusto, though, it can get a little bit more unsavoury than your average nudge, punch and tickle.In 1994, during the second Test in a series between the two in Wellington, Johan ‘Le Beast’ Le Roux decided that chomping down on the ear of All Black captain Sean Fitzpatrick was a totally sane, normal, tasty way of dealing with the celebrated hooker. The All Blacks won 13-9 in the close, niggly affair, with the blood-dripped Fitzpatrick celebrating a Series win.Le Roux was sent home for his beastly behaviour and a 17-month ban brought an ignominious end to the South African’s international career.Tetley Bitter and nibblesIn 1998 England and Bath prop Kevin Yates was cited (alongside his other two front-row colleagues) for a bite on the ear of London Scottish flanker Simon Fenn during a Tetley Bitter Cup showdown at the Rec.It was later decided that Yates was guilty of the assault that meant Fenn required 25 stitches. He received a six month ban. Having been dropped by England the prop moved to New Zealand, playing his rugby for the Hurricanes franchise. He was finally reinstated to England duty in 2007, just under 10 years since his last cap.A 6 Nations snarlIn the final game of the 2012 6 Nations Championship between Ireland and England, quiet, unassuming hooker Dylan Hartley bit down on the finger of flanker Stephen Ferris.Hartley had received a lengthy ban for gouging in 2007 (some 26 weeks) but was only handed a 8-week break in 2012, meaning that he was clear to tour in the summer with England, despite missing Northampton’s end of season charge.Vicious grin: Kevin Yates at Bath, 1998Irish back-rowers must be delicious  Sisa Koyamaibole of Bordeaux Begles dined out on Declan Danaher’s bicep during an Amlin Challenge Cup rout in 2012 by London Irish in 2012. In October the No 8 was given a three-month ban in all competitions and told to keep his gnashers to himself. Hard to do when you used to be a Shark.Points lost, bite marks gainedIn December this season Plymouth Albion and Bristol were handed a suspended five-point deduction (meant for next year) and fined £250 each after a ugly full-team tear-up in their Championship fixture. 7 Aug 1998: Portrait of Kevin Yates of Bath during a squad photocall at The Recreation Ground in Bath, England.

What was he doing?

The lakefront property came with a lot of topographical challenges. Instead of seeing the rocky terrain and steep cliffs as obstacles, the elements were ingrained into the design. The lot faces north, yielding an unexpected advantage in that it is unaffected by direct sunlight, making the home less costly to cool.Save this picture!SketchPerched on the edge of a cliff, the design is centered around uninterrupted views of the water and surrounding mountains. The lake-facing façade is made entirely out of glass, eliminating the need for artwork or busy interiors. No matter where you are in the home, the views are the focal point of every room. Architect Chris Reebals states, “I wanted to do something really dramatic. I wanted to play off the drama of the views and this sheer cliff, like it was rolling off the edge of a mountain. If you’re sitting in any of the public places, I wanted it to feel like you’re floating on the water. All you can see is water from the sides and front.” Save this picture!© Luker PhotographyThe owners wanted a weekend getaway where daily activities revolved around the water. Numerous outdoor spaces and large windows were added to accommodate the client’s desire for multipurpose areas that maximize fun and relaxation. While the glass wall gives the home a contemporary feel, the entry has a more traditional, farmhouse style. The family’s bedrooms are located around the entry, allowing for more privacy, while the public spaces are minimal and open. This stylistic balance makes the home practical for the family and their guests.Save this picture!Floor PlanBy embracing the initial topographical challenges, Christopher Architecture & Interiors was able to deliver a unique, thoughtful solution that is just as functional as it is beautiful. With ever changing views, multiple outdoor spaces, and undemanding living quarters, this weekend retreat refreshes the soul — something that can be enjoyed year-round.Save this picture!© Luker PhotographyProduct Description.The lake-facing wall is made entirely of glass, provided by Nelson Glass (nelsonglass.com).

Oakland, Calif., port truckers gather support

first_imgOakland, Calif. — More than 200 truckers, their families and local supporters of the Port of Oakland Truckers Association gathered at Middle Harbor Park in the Port of Oakland for a cookout on Nov. 2. Local port truckers and International Longshore Warehouse Union Local 10 members addressed the crowd, and nearly $1,000 was raised for a strike fund. Independent operators are legally prohibited from forming a sanctioned union, but Oakland owner-operators have formed POTA to organize and bargain for better conditions and compensation.A Nov. 4 POTA press release explains the current need for support: “In what organizers are calling a ‘major escalation,’ the City of Oakland has filed suit against two owner-operator truck drivers for alleged participation in a work stoppage at the Port of Oakland on Aug. 19 of this year. Attorney Dan Siegel will appear for them at court today in a preliminary hearing.“After truckers shut down the port a second time with pickets on the morning of Oct. 21 and followed with a major slowdown for a second day … Oakland Mayor Jean Quan requested a meeting with representatives for the Port Truckers to persuade them to return to work.“Mayor Quan asked for 10 days in which to pull together a meeting to discuss Port Truckers’ demands with Port commissioners, legislators, and members of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), but has not contacted them since to schedule such a meeting. Now, 11 days later, at least two representatives are being sued for unlimited damages exceeding $25,000. Port of Oakland truckers are some of the lowest paid port drayagers in the country.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Philadelphia library workers and allies demand more funding

first_imgAbout 50 members and allies of Friends of the Free Library rallied June 13 inside Philadelphia City Hall, demanding city officials increase annual funding by $15 million. Unionized library workers and Library Friends Group members organized the #FundOurLibraries campaign to protest inadequate funding for the city’s 54 library branches. Over 750 emergency closures took place in 2018, 350 from lack of staff and 400 from building problems. An average of two branches were closed every day. Activists were able to push Mayor Jim Kenney and the City Council for an increase of $3.5 million in the 2020 budget by gathering over 5,000 petitions, organizing hundreds of letters, phone calls and meetings with elected officials, and packing city budget hearings.But FFL estimates, in their June 13 press release, at least $15 million is needed annually for staffing to keep all library branches open six days a week, to increase community programming and to make repairs on “dozens of failing roofs” and other building problems.The city always seems strapped for cash when it comes to funding public schools or keeping libraries open, but has plenty of money to cover police brutality. Between 2013 and 2017 Philadelphia paid over $50 million to settle lawsuits filed against police officers, most of whom remain on the force. As Philadelphia’s neighborhoods fight for funds for libraries, the Kenney administration increased the police budget by $18 million in fiscal year 2019 to $709 million, the largest item in the city’s annual budget. The Police Department budget was again upped in 2020 — by $54 million. While the Free Library is allocated only $46 million for 2020, funding for police, prisons and “other criminal justice” costs will total $1.2 billion. (tinyurl.com/y6a9bu7x)It’s common knowledge Black and Brown residents bear the brunt of police violence. Stop-and-frisk statistics from American Civil Liberties Union Pennsylvania prove it. And 81 percent of people shot by Philadelphia cops between 2007 and 2013 were African American, despite Black people accounting for just more than 40 percent of the city’s population. (tinyurl.com/y2fhnzp5) The Plain View Project reported on June 1 that 328 Philadelphia police officers posted racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic and otherwise offensive content on Facebook. But City Hall continues to increase the police budget while inadequately funding education and library programs for high poverty areas and communities of color. Its racist actions speak louder than words, revealing  the underlying belief that police occupation of Black and Brown communities is more important than funding programs to help lift those communities from deep poverty.Philadelphia residents of every age and race need clean, safe and modern library services, not more police!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Women’s basketball rolls past Missouri State in WNIT second round, 86-51

TCU finished with five turnovers in the first quarter, leading to five Missouri State points.Despite the turnovers, TCU’s defense kept the game close, as four steals and four blocks helped hold the Lady Bears to 35 percent shooting from the field.The Horned Frogs shot 31 percent from the field on a 4-13 clip in the first quarter and trailed 16-13 after the first 10 minutes. TCU suffered from two separate scoring droughts of at least two minutes.TCU’s poor offense did not continue into the second quarter as the Horned Frogs went on a 7-0 run early in the quarter to take a 26-24 lead. The run lasted only 51 seconds, and Pebley’s squad made four of five shots to stun the Lady Bears.The Lady Bears capitalized on three early TCU turnovers in the second quarter to extend their lead before the Horned Frogs began to catch fire from deep. As Jayde Woods cut to the basket midway through the second quarter, she found Amber Ramirez open behind the three-point arc– Ramirez drained the three and was fouled. The four-point play sparked a fire in the Horned Frogs for the rest of the quarter, highlighting a 21-3 run that brought their lead to 10 entering halftime, 40-30.“At this time of year it’s so important to start right,” Pebley said. “You need to show that you are in it to compete and continue to persevere. We wanted to start out aggressive, so we started with a lineup that was more aggressive on the defensive end. They locked down on the defensive end and contributed some high percentage shots.”TCU’s defense came alive in the second quarter, holding Missouri State to 4-16 shooting from the field. The Lady Bears ended the half by making only one of their final eight shots with a field goal drought of three minutes and 25 seconds.As Missouri State continued to struggle in the third quarter, TCU came out of the locker room on fire. The Frogs drained four of their first five shots in the second half to extend their lead to 18 with just over six minutes remaining in the third quarter, 51-33.A quick 6-0 run from Missouri State cut TCU’s lead to 12, but the Horned Frogs responded with an 11-2 run late in the third quarter to push the lead to 21. Missouri State finished the quarter making only one of their final nine shots.TCU did not let up in the fourth quarter, limiting the Lady Bears to 23 percent shooting and 1o points to seal the victory. Missouri State’s 51 points tie TCU’s defensive record for fewest points allowed in a single game this season.With its two WNIT games were during spring break, senior Toree Thompson said the team had no issue being prepared to play.“It gives you a better focus,” Thompson said. “You are able to focus strictly on basketball and that helped us out a lot. We stayed locked in. It means so much to finish my career playing in the postseason. Knowing I can go out in the postseason means a lot.”The Horned Frogs will play the winner of Tuesday’s game between New Mexico and Rice in the third round of the WNIT.Pebley is not worried about the layoff.“We need to rest,” Pebley said. “We have two seniors that are banged and bruised. We will find out who we play Tuesday.” Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

(Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/FFIWhen the Jet Propulsion Laboratory-built Mars Perseverance Mars rover lands on the Red Planet in February, it will not only roam the surface in search of signs of ancient life but also peer underground with a first-of-its kind ground penetrating radar system, according to JPL.The Radar Imager for Mars’ Subsurface Experiment, or RIMFAX, will be the first ground-penetrating radar to be deployed on the surface of Mars, JPL said in a written statement.“RIMFAX can provide a highly detailed view of subsurface structures down to at least 30 feet underground,” the statement said. “In doing so, the instrument will reveal hidden layers of geology and help find clues to past environments on Mars, especially those that may have provided the conditions necessary for supporting life.”Researchers plan to “stack” multiple radar soundings to create a three-dimensional topographical map of the areas that Perseverance will explore, according to JPL.The data is expected to provide a wealth of knowledge into the history of Mars’ geology and climate, as well as shed light on the ongoing search for signs of ancient microbial life.The technology is similar to ground penetrating radars used on Earth to seek out buried utilities and underground caverns.More information about NASA’s Mars 2020 Mission and the Perseverance rover is available online at nasa.gov/perseverance.
