Super Rugby: Eight players to watch

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By Alex ShawWhilst rain and wind batters the northern hemisphere and a particularly stodgy Six Nations heads into its third round, the southern hemisphere is gearing up for the return of Super Rugby, and all the thrills and spills that come with it.The tournament is back with a new-look format and welcomes three new teams in the forms of the Sunwolves, Jaguares and Southern Kings. These new additions mark the first time in the tournament’s history that there will be Japanese and Argentinean representation.Below are a number of players – newbies, former back-ups or emerging stars – who will be well worth keeping an eye on in this historic edition of the southern hemisphere’s premiere club competition.Richie Mo’unga, CrusadersWhen Dan Carter, Colin Slade and Tom Taylor all departed Christchurch for the lures of the Top 14 in 2015, a fly-half vacuum was created at the Crusaders. Marty McKenzie and Ben Volavola were thought to be in the lead for the starter’s jersey but judging by preseason selections, Mo’unga may have pipped them both to the post.Pace to burn: Richie Mounga is a classy operator for the Crusaders in midfieldThe 21-year-old was a standout performer in New Zealand’s U20 side in 2014 and has since backed that up with two impressive seasons with Canterbury in the ITM Cup. There are certainly worse teams to try and make a name for yourself at as a young fly-half than the Crusaders, who have a well-drilled pack and dangerous back line.Ayumu Goromaru, RedsThe Japanese sensation has reportedly become the highest paid player in the world since his move to the Reds, thanks to the numerous commercial opportunities his arrival in Queensland has created. Away from the finances, however, this will be the biggest challenge in Ayumu Goromaru’s club career to date.Fan base: Full-back Ayumu Goromaru is a superstar in JapanThe full-back is good enough to make the Reds’ 15 jersey his own but he will still have to overcome issues such as his limited English and the obvious step up in quality from the Japanese Top League. If he can adapt quickly to his new environs, Goromaru should provide the Reds with much-needed consistency and reliability at the back, as well as an unerring boot.Hanro Liebenberg, BullsWith older brother Wiaan and Jacques du Plessis in Montpellier and Pierre Spies having cut ties with the Bulls, Liebenberg could quickly become the centrepiece of their new-look back row. After captaining the South Africa U20 side and making his Super Rugby debut last season, Liebenberg has spent much of his time since recovering from a ruptured small intestine.Filling the breach: Hanro Liebenburg could plug the gap left by Pierre SpiesIt had been feared that the injury may have been career-ending but the versatile loose forward is back and looking sharp ahead of the Bulls’ season opener against the Stormers. Whether he’s packing down at eight or on the blindside, Liebenberg’s carrying, work rate and strong tackling will be vital to the Bulls this year.Ngani Laumape, HurricanesLaumape has come to Wellington via rugby league and is looking to fill the considerable Ma’a Nonu-sized hole in the Hurricanes’ midfield. Short and stocky but extremely powerful, Laumape is centre very much in the mould of France’s Jonathan Danty. For the latest Rugby World magazine subscription offers, click here. Power-packed: Ngani Laumape has a League backgroundLike Danty, Laumape has some real ball skills to go with his impressive physical attributes and on paper should fill the Nonu void admirably. Readjusting to Union and getting on the same page as fly-half Beauden Barrett will be Laumape’s priorities in the opening weeks but look for him to make a bigger impact as the season wears on.Jack Dempsey, WaratahsThe back row of Dave Dennis, Michael Hooper and Wycliff Palu is well-entrenched in Sydney, but with Dennis bound for Exeter and Palu turning 34 this season, the ‘Tahs are going to look to Dempsey to step up in 2016. Dempsey is versatile enough to cover multiple positions in the back row and will look to stake a claim this season that he is a man the ‘Tahs can rely on moving forward.New blood: Jack Dempsey can step up for the Waratahs in the backrowAn initial role on the bench seems likely but with head coach Daryl Gibson keen to find the successors to Dennis and Palu at six and eight respectively, expect to see plenty of opportunities sent Dempsey’s way.Santiago Cordero, JaguaresSantiago Cordero delighted anyone who watched him play at the Rugby World Cup and now gets a chance to shine in a club competition which seems tailor-made to his strengths. Unlike many of his national compatriots, Cordero resisted the lure of heading to Europe, instead staying in Argentina during his formative rugby years.Finisher: Santiago Cordero is a jet-heeled finisher in the Shane Williams mouldAs good as he was at the RWC, the lack of high level competition week in week out so far in his career will certainly make Super Rugby a challenging prospect for the full-back-cum-wing. If he can overcome that step up in quality of opposition, then Cordero has all the skills required to be one of the competition’s stars.Pieter-Steph du Toit, StormersHaving made the move from Durban to Cape Town in the offseason, du Toit will now pack down alongside Eben Etzebeth in arguably the best engine room pairing in Super Rugby. Injuries have had a significant impact on du Toit’s career to this point but if he can stay fit and impress, he’s as talented as any of the second rows in the competition.Towering: Pieter Steph du Toit has been namechecked by no less than Bobby SkinstadPartnering the incumbent in the Springbok engine room at club level certainly won’t hurt du Toit’s international prospects and he needs to turn in a big season if he wants to be central to South Africa’s plans in this new cycle.Seta Tamanivalu, ChiefsAfter soaring to prominence in the ITM Cup, the 2015 Super Rugby season proved to be somewhat of a false dawn for Tamanivalu. He was tipped to take the competition by storm, but saw his opportunities limited by the impressive midfield duo of Sonny Bill Williams and Charlie Ngatai.Vision: Seta Tamanivalu is chased by Tevita Kuridrani of the BrumbiesWith Williams now focused on Olympic glory with the New Zealand sevens side, there is an opening in the Chiefs midfield for Tamanivalu to showcase his considerable abilities. The Chiefs have become perhaps the most efficient conveyor belt of talent amongst the Kiwi franchises and this Fijian-born centre has the potential to be one of the very best to roll off of it.center_img Crowd pleaser: Santiago Cordero will be marked closely by opposition defences The Super Rugby season starts this weekend and there will a smorgasbord of young talent on display, RW picks eight of the bestlast_img read more

President Ouattara wants to ensure all journalists can work freely, says ambassador

first_img Organisation News Reports RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections RSF_en Côte d’IvoireAfrica Several journalists of the Olympe press group, which publishes the daily papers Soir Info and L’Inter, have stayed in their Abidjan offices since 31 March for fear of reprisals in some parts of the city. A reporter from L’Inter was beaten at a roadblock by Ouattara supporters in Treichville on 11 April.Some journalists close to the ousted regime have gone into hiding while others are still being threatened by remnants of ex-President Laurent Gbagbo’s Jeunes patriotes militia.Meanwhile, several of the country’s daily papers will soon reappear. Local relay transmission of the French TV stations TV5 Monde and France 24, has also resumed. Their broadcasts had been suspended last December by the CNCA. Côte d’IvoireAfrica A top official of Cote d’Ivoire’s new government has assured Reporters Without Borders that it will respect media freedom, after the organisation called for an end to the disruption and abuses of the country’s media during the past several months of conflict, for laws decriminalising media offences to be retained and for opposition journalists to be allowed to work freely.Two representatives of the organisation met Ivorian ambassador to France Ally Coulibaly yesterday with the family of disappeared journalist Guy-André Kieffer.”We won’t make the same mistakes as the previous government,” Coulibaly told them. “We know what is expected of us. President Ouattara wants to ensure all journalists can work freely.” Reporters Without Borders said the conflict had very seriously damaged media freedom, with the authorities seizing control of regulatory bodies and using state media for propaganda and with journalists unable to work because of lawlessness, threats and censorship. Both sides had disrupted the reporting of news and the new government’s declared reconciliation policy should include respecting media plurality and the expression of all opinions, it said.

The press freedom organisation said it was still very concerned about the risk of reprisals and score-settling, caused by the sharp polarisation of the country’s media, and about the safety of many Ivorian journalists. The director-general of RTI, Brou Amessan, was beaten up on 6 April by members of the pro-Ouattara Forces républicaines de Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI) and was injured on his foot and hand.

Required fields are marked * Fashion & Style The Art of Manly Fashion This May, Mark Piscitelli’s Men’s Boutique teaches men to dress like gentlemen By FRANZ A.D. MORALES Published on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 | 2:21 pm In a time when some “business” men dress like grown-up kids and personal trainers, it seems the fine arts of gentlemanly fashion have been hopelessly lost.[smooth=id:124;]Mark Piscitelli is looking to change that.This May, Piscitelli’s men’s boutique will be teaching men how to tie neckties and bowties the right ways, and taking their measurements properly so they know (for better or worse) what size garments they should be buying, and generally chatting men’s fashion with the curious and aspiring who don’t know where to turn in today’s big-box-store mall world.In his gentlemanly way, owner Mark Piscitelli says he wants to impart knowledge and tips of his trade to men who are customers and men who are not.The reason, he says with a smile, is “educational. They won’t have to depend on their wives.”Manager Michael Amer adds: “We came up with the idea of giving a tutorial to our dear customers on how to tie a tie in different ways; the Italian way, French way, Half-Windsor, Full -Windsor, English way, and also how to tie a bow tie.”“Everything you wanted to know and then some,” adds Tim Mangum, sales associate at the Boutique.Piscitelli says they help customers look good from head to toe, advising them on the best sizes, which colors go with which, what patterns will work, all towards the goal of making men look their best.“We’re very good at being honest with the customers. We’ll tell them: ‘It doesn’t look well on you, try this.’ Because we don’t want to put something on them that doesn’t complement their color of hair, their skin tone, their eyes,” Piscitelli explains.One of Pasadena’s “hidden gems,” Mark Piscitelli’s Men’s Boutique has been in the Pasadena Playhouse neighborhood for 25 years. That’s amazing longevity in a retail sector which has seen a dozen men’s shops dwindle to two or three over the last decades.Piscitelli understands the style of Pasadena men, and clients are given the complete attention they deserve.“Lots of attention,” says Piscitelli.Amer adds, “Men in Pasadena, they love to be conservative but with a little bit of flair. So many stores came and left because they didn’t quite understand the mentality here.”The shop brims with colorful merchandise. It’s obvious that Piscitelli reflects a cosmopolitan, confident point of view for the well-dressed man, and he’s happy to share what he knows with customers.“We care that they look fine and that they feel fine in wearing what they get. That’s the main thing,” adds Piscitelli.Choices range from handsome European-made sports coats, trousers, neckwear, leather jackets, formal wear and casual looks.Though small, the boutique can hold its own with a carefully-curated range of offerings and the added octane of custom shirts and made-to-measure clothing, which virtually assure a man that he can get what he might looking for.For men, so much of looking great boils down to classic principles of knowledge and good taste, things which must be absorbed and discussed. This May, Mark Piscitelli makes easy to ask all the menswear questions you’ve always wanted answered but were afraid to ask. Stop by!Mark Piscitelli Men’s Boutique is located at 589 East Green St. (on the corner with Madison Ave.) in Pasadena.

ISPCA offers advice for pet care during COVID-19

first_imgNewsHealthLifestylePetsISPCA offers advice for pet care during COVID-19By Cian Reinhardt – March 23, 2020 318 Previous articleBishop of Limerick, Brendan Leahy says ‘We must prepare for what’s coming’Next articleCommunities doing something special – St. Munchin’s Community Centre Cian Reinhardthttp://www.limerickpost.ieJournalist & Digital Media Coordinator. Covering human interest and social issues as well as creating digital content to accompany news stories. [email protected] Dog photo created by freepik – www.freepik.comTHE ISPCA is reassuring pet owners there is no evidence that pets such as dogs and cats can catch or spread COVID-19 (coronavirus).This view is echoed by the HSE, World Organisation for Animal Health, and the World Small Animal Veterinary Association who believe the coronavirus cannot be transmitted from human to animal or vice versa.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, if your pet is touched by someone with the coronavirus then there is the potential that it can be spread, should someone else come into contact with your pet. But the ISPCA say this risk is low as transmission needs prolonged contact or exposure.ISPCA Public Relations Manager, Carmel Murray says the group are asking people “not to worry about their pets”.“It is important to interact with your pets as normal and to wash your hands regularly after contact with any animal,” said Ms Murray, “It is also practical to make plans just in case you are ill, so that if needed, there is someone such as a family member or a friend who can help care for your pets short or long term”.Carmel noted even during these uncertain times the work of the ISPCA does not stop, and dedicated staff still provide a high level of care to the “hundreds of animals in our centres”.“Sadly, we expect to lose many of our vital donations which is a huge worry,” she said, “We are in this together and we’ll do everything we can to continue rescuing and caring for Ireland’s most cruelly treated animals.“As a charity, we rely on the generosity of kind supporters to enable us to continue our vital work and we do need your continued support more than ever”.ISPCA Tips and Advice for caring for your pets during this time:When out walking your dog, you should ensure they are kept on a short lead and under control at all times.Restrict contact with other people and animals and adhere to social distancing guidelines.Continue to exercise and play with your pets to alleviate stress in the confines of your garden.There is also plenty of ways to keep your pets entertained such as putting their favourite treats in a Kong pet toy or by using food puzzle toys or by play fetch or tug-of-war with their favourite toy.This is a good time to teach your pets some new tricks. We would love to see your cute animal photos or videos.Avoid sharing your food or being kissed or licked by your pet and always wash your hands.It’s important to you have sufficient pet food, prescribed medication or other essentials such as cat litter during self-isolation.Plan ahead in the event you need help caring for your pets short or long term.As the COVID-19 crisis continues, ISPCA centres are temporarily closed to the public as a precautionary measure.  It is important we continue with good hygiene measures and follow advice. Stay safe and stay home.For more information about the ISPCA, please visit www.ispca.ie.

RACK ‘EM UP: Troy’s new APA pool league off to a fast start

first_img Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… “Several of us were playing in APA Pool Leagues in Dothan and Montgomery, and we got to thinking that we should have a league here in Troy instead of going out of town,” said Zapata, who agreed to check into the possibility of organizing a Troy pool league. Beth Whittington, APA League operator for the local area, came to Troy and met with Zapata and Double Branch owner Nate Sneed, who agreed to allow APA Pool League play at the bar.“To have a league, we had to have four teams of five to eight players each,” Zapata said. “On our first night, June 12, we had six teams. On June 26, we had eight teams.”Zapata said Whittington was instrumental in the local league getting off to such a successful start. Print Article “Beth told us what to do and how to do and then she helped us do it,” he said. “She was here Monday night to assist us in any way and to support and encourage us. We greatly appreciate all her efforts in helping get APA League Troy off and running.”Whittington said the APA Pool League is proud to have a league in Troy and very excited about the interest and enthusiasm it has created.“Pool is a great sport and a challenging sport,” Whittington said. “It’s a sport anybody can play. Men and women can play together and on a level playing field. Pool is a great way to have fun with friends while getting to know new people.”Zapata said the APA Pool League dispels any notion of smoky, shady pool halls.“Our league is not like that,” he said. “Our most popular drink is Coke, followed by bottled water. Beer is a distant third. This is league play and we want to do our best and, too, we meet on Monday nights so we all have to get up the next morning and go to work.”Pool is a social game and it’s played among friends. “It’s men and women playing with and against each other,” Zapata said. “With the handicaps, it’s anybody’s game. Women are good at pool, anyway. They have good hand/eye coordination and they can make it tough on us. Play pool is challenging and fun and we all have a good time.”Zapata said pool is also a good stress reliever, whether you’re playing or standing around watching.  “Before you know it, you’ll forget about the stress of your job and your problems in life,” he said. “You just get caught up in the game.”And there’s also the economics of pool.“In league play, it’s $8 a night,” Zapata said. “Where else can you go and be entertained for that?”It’s man’s nature to be competitive and friendly competition is healthy. And, sometimes, it pays dividends. At the end of the APA League’s year, some lucky or highly skilled league teams will receive all-expenses paid trips to Las Vegas to participate in the national championships.“And, we’ve got a chance,” Zapata said. “When you’ve got a prize like that sitting out there, that’s even more reason to play pool.”Playing pool is a fun, challenging and social sport. It’s also educational.Pool is geometry at its highest degree of precision. If you don’t believe that, ask a mathematician, the leaguers said. “And, then come join us.”The APA Pool League Troy meets at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays at the Double Branch in Troy. Interested players are invited.

The amateur league features a cross-section of people from across the community. The APA Pool League Troy teams have from five to eight players on each of its eight teams. Only five members of each team play each on Monday nights at the Double Branch in Troy. Therefore, team members are not locked into a weekly commitment. Team captains are, front from left, Gregg Sprinkle, Jeff Cotton and Alex Adams, and in back, Brent Berry, Josh Baker, Eddie Cox and John Morgan. The mere mention of the game of pool brings to mind a dark, smoky bar room with seedy looking men puffing on non-filtered cigarettes, drinking beer and gambling the night away.But, that’s not the game of pool today. And that’s not the scene that describes the APA Pool League teams that “rack ’em up” at the Double Branch in Troy on Monday nights.The American Poolplayers Association (APA) is the world’s largest amateur pool league and is comprised of men and women ages 19 and over from all walks of life.  Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Daylast_img read more

first_img The mission team also had opportunities to minister to the city’s homeless people and to visit with patients in the hospital.“Here at home, if we have a family member in the hospital, we can visit them,” Sims said. “But down there, a fence was around the hospital and there were guards. You could only go in the hospital at designated times and only for an hour or two. We were able to go into the hospital and show our concern for the patients and their families and, hopefully, lift their spirits.” “One Voice” or  “Una Voz” features voices primarily from First Baptist Church of Troy, which led the mission trip to Morelia, several voices from Hephzibah Baptist Church in Troy and a few from churches outside the area.“This was the fifth year First Baptist has led a mission trip to Morelia,” Sims said. “It was an uplifting experience to sing on the plaza. We sang familiar songs like  ‘Nothing But the Blood,” and some not so familiar, like  ‘New Jerusalem.’ The translations of the songs were displayed on a screen. We were also able to give our testimonies through an interpreter. It was a wonderful experience.”Tonight’s “One Voice/ Una Voz” concert will be the same program that was presented and so well received in Morelia.
