Five things we learnt in rugby in May

first_imgTest rugby remains the pinnacle – that’s why Joey Carbery movedMay saw Joey Carbery sign for Munster and with it the understandable lobbing of Irish faeces onto the social-media fan. The fallout is understandable.If you’re a Leinster fan, you’ve just lost one of the best next-generation outside-halves in Europe and handed over an asset to your arch enemy. And that’s why Test rugby must, in all countries, remain the pinnacle of rugby.Switch: Joey Carbery is leaving Leinster for Munster (Getty Images)Club/regional/provincial rugby can be bought. Success at that level is fleeting and is often the direct result of money. You need only look at Stade Francais’ recent shopping spree to see how next season’s pending success is a matter of popping a straw deep into a well full of financial juice – which is, by the way, far easier than popping an actual straw into a Capri-Sun.Related: Stade Francais are out-spending Top 14 rivalsTest rugby success, while being heavily influenced by cash long-term, cannot be bought directly. It is impossible to alter the three-year win rate of a Test team with money alone, whereas that can be easily achieved in the club game.And that’s why the current Irish model is proving so successful. The success of the provinces is secondary to the Test team, yet their top provinces remain the benchmark in European rugby.Creative ‘player announcements’ should be applaudedCreative player announcements are unfamiliar territory for rugby. Many have responded to the conceptual unveiling of players on social media in the same manner that Sir Clive Woodward responded to the Barbarians’ performance against England. But these shifts in rugby marketing should be applauded, not ridiculed. From Laumape to lessons in creativity and Carbery to Cardiff Blues, Paul Williams has the rugby happenings of the past month covered Ngani Laumape can fill hole left by Sonny Bill WilliamsThere was a time when the All Blacks couldn’t do without Sonny Bill Williams. With the absence of Ma’a Nonu and Conrad Smith, SBW became the fulcrum in the centre. His ability to crash the line and offload fused the roles of Nonu and Smith into one position and allowed the All Blacks to experiment with younger centres outside.Those performances are long gone from the injured SBW. However, the emergence of Ngani Laumape will have calmed many fears in Kiwi rugby.Out of action: Sonny Bill Williams will miss the three-Test series against France (Getty Images)Laumape had a very successful ’carrying’ season for the Hurricanes in 2016-17, where his unorthodox 5ft 7in and 16st frame saw many a defender’s ribcage compress. But the crash-ball Laumape is so last year. This year, whilst defenders set their legs, and hope that their internal organs don’t move too much in the impact, Laumape has been sending miss-two passes into the wider channels – making narrow defences looks incredibly naive.Laumape may not be the long-term owner of the All Blacks’ No 12 shirt, but he could certainly be there for the World Cup – and he will cause France massive problems in June.Barbarians prove that individual talent still mattersEngland versus the Barbarians was, from the outset, intended to be about creativity and individual talent. The selection of Danny Cipriani looked like a rare change in selectional stance from Eddie Jones, a coach who is becoming so rigid that he makes the Angel of the North look like a yoga master.However, the lesson in creativity and individual talent came not from Cipriani, but from the Barbarians. It was an immaculate display of individual ability and a real kick in the windpipe for a sport where, particularly at Test level, stability of defensive and attacking systems has superseded individual ability.Making a splash: Chris Ashton scored a hat-trick for the Barbarians (Getty Images)At it’s most basic it proved that individual talent really matters when time in camp, strength and conditioning, and consistency of selection are absent. To see 23 Barbarians players, who would have spent way more time playing drinking games than analysing England games, reduce a team to a defensive completion of 67% was incredible. To stick nine tries on England and 63 points on the Twickenham scoreboard is worthy of its own documentary on Netflix.It was, of course, a weakened England team, playing in a fixture that meant little to the World Cup cycle, but to watch 23 Barbarians, relying on their talent rather than PowerPoint rugby, was as big a victory as the winning margin itself.Cardiff Blues deserve the backslapsLeinster will rightly take the European plaudits this season. Their rugby was stunning in every aspect. And whilst in Wales, the Scarlets will arguably receive the greater plaudits for reaching the Champions Cup semi-final and Guinness Pro14 final, it is the Cardiff Blues that deserve the rigorous slaps on the back.In the soap opera of Welsh rugby, Cardiff Blues have been EastEnders. Very few smiles punctuated by public feuds, financial problems and unsightly divorces. But despite this, the Cardiff Blues won the Challenge Cup.Triumph: Cardiff Blues celebrate their Challenge Cup win (Getty Images)It was a remarkable victory given the pre-Christmas situation, where Danny Wilson had announced he was leaving and the news that the club may once again have to move from Cardiff Arms Park.Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of their achievement is that it involved zero additional cash – it couldn’t, as the performance improvements all took place mid-season. Cardiff Blues’ turnaround was entirely down to attitude and endeavour, and it has made them Wales’ second region – as opposed to having to scrap it out with the Dragons to be the third or fourth.Cardiff Blues finally have a squad – and hopefully a coaching staff – who are looking to thrive rather than escape. And that is fantastic for Welsh rugby. Rugby is moving forward on the pitch, let’s hope it can off the pitch too.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Ospreys’ unveiling of George North was executed using a parody of a WhatsApp chat, whereby the region’s players added George North to the group. It was a clever, affordable use of social media, which certainly cut through what can be a very conservative creative space. Yet the response was as positive as Mourad Boudjellal’s managerial feedback.Rugby finds itself in a strange predicament when it comes to advertising and creative thinking. On one hand we have the constant criticism of the ‘blazers’ and their traditional, constrictive hold on the game. Yet when someone rips off the blazer and reveals a funky T-shirt, the rugby public baulks and does a little sick in its mouth.

‘Dump Trump’ in Maryland

first_imgHagerstown, Md. — Chanting “Dump Trump!” and “Racist! Sexist! Anti-gay! Donald Trump, go away!” the second of two Maryland protests confronted the Republican candidate here on April 24. The racist billionaire held his hyped up spectacle at Hagerstown Regional Airport in the mountains of western Maryland. The multinational crowd of protesters came from Baltimore, Frostburg, and the Hagerstown and Frederick areas.State and local police stopped demonstrators from entering the rally site. Those others who were allowed in and walked the mile to see Trump had to walk past the militant protesters. The assembled activists were able to drown out a self-declared Nazi provocateur by chanting, “Two, four, six, eight! We don’t want your racist hate!” which further added to his impotent rage.The protesters held signs that read “No Hate in Our State,” “15 Dollars an Hour,” “Jobs Not Anti-Immigrant Hate” and a photo of Trump on which was written “No to Fascism.” The Peoples Power Assembly made full use of its sound system to chant similar slogans. The police formed a dividing wall between the protest and Trump’s rally when more Mexican and Black youth joined the demonstration and added their voices to the anti-Trump chants. In between the chants, protesters were able to give a political rap on the group’s sound system, explaining how the economic disruption caused by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was responsible for an influx of desperate, impoverished immigrants. Many of the assembled held Peoples Power Assembly placards denouncing Trump’s racist and sexist campaign against Muslims, immigrants and women.A week earlier, a protest in Berlin, Md., on the state’s Eastern Shore, defied the region’s history of racism. In the late 1960s, Civil Rights leader H. Rap Brown (now known as Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin and a political prisoner since 2002) was arrested for “inciting a riot” when he encouraged Black residents to unite and resist racism. Demonstrators arriving from Baltimore, including members of Workers World Party, were encouraged to see that a crowd of at least 800 people, consisting of Black, Mexican-American and white youth, including LGBQT groups, were also protesting Trump. Most were from the Eastern Shore, including students from the high school where Trump would be speaking.A group of Mexican-American students were kicked out of that school the day before Trump arrived for wearing the Mexican colors of red, white and green. They displayed heroic militancy and enthusiasm at the rally and borrowed the organizers’ megaphone to chant their slogans in both Spanish and English. The spirited rally lasted from 2 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Heavily armed police with a SWAT team kept the anti-racist groups on the grass when there was a confrontation with a bellicose crowd of Trump supporters.Andre Powell, candidate for mayor of Baltimore for WWP, contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Mexico and Canada Confirm USMCA Signing this Week

Politico reports that Canada’s Justin Trudeau and the outgoing Mexican President will sign the pact on the Mexican official’s last day in office at the G20 Summit, where President Trump is also expected to talk trade with China. The confirmation comes as there is no steel and aluminum tariff resolution for Mexico and Canada, once thought to be a contingent by the two nations.Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau last week said Canada was “not going to make one set of negotiations contingent on the other.” Mexico and Canada both had previously threatened to hold off on signing the USMCA until President Trump removed the steel and aluminum tariffs. The tariffs are also thought to limit any gains in the new agreement once in place.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Nov 26, 2018 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Officials Recruiting Community Members to Help Fight Mosquitoes

first_imgThe San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District is recruiting an army of volunteers in the war against disease-spreading insects.Through the Bite Back program, residents within the district service area can sign up to join the campaign to cut down on the population of mosquitoes, which can carry diseases such as West Nile virus and the Zika virus, according to District spokesman Levy Sun.“We have heard over the years that a lot of residents want to be more involved with mosquito control and help educate the neighbors, but there never was an outlet or a program designed for them,” Sun said. “So early last year, we started developing this Bite Back program and we tested that with some of our residents and it just took off from there.”It’s been especially successful in Pasadena, he said.“Fifty percent of all of our Bite Back Champions are from Pasadena,” Sun said. “I’m very proud of Pasadena residents right now, considering how we cover 26 cities, and half of our champions are from the city of Pasadena.”Residents can choose from three different levels of involvement, Sun said.Those without a lot of time to invest can sign up to simply receive email updates from the District, he said.“The second thing they can do is receive a Bite Back kit, which includes door hangers, and they can then pass it out to their neighbors in their neighborhood,” Sun said.“And the third activity that people can sign up for is becoming Bite Back Captains,” he said. “So these are essentially block captains and they will lead their neighborhoods to a more bite-free community. And that requires just a simple 30-minute orientation.”Groups periodically organize “Block the Bite Inspection Parties” to go out into their neighborhoods and get rid of sources of mosquitoes, such as standing water, in which the insects breed.“One key thing that really draws a lot of people into this program is we teach them how we do mosquito control and we basically make them experts, too,” Sun said. “We ask every resident who signs up and joins us to not reach for a can of pesticide. Instead reach for the stagnant water, toss it out and protect yourself using repellent and other non-chemical solutions.”“I have told residents that if they can’t eliminate the water from a source, they can use mineral oil,” he said. “It sits on a surface and it will suffocate the mosquito underneath the water. Or they can buy an organic pesticide called Bti and apply it to the water and it will only target the mosquitoes. In fact, that’s what we predominantly use in mosquito control.”More information and a sign-up form are available online at EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS More Cool Stuff Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Your email address will not be published.
