Top 14: Is there a blueprint for success?

first_img Foreign legion: Aussie James O’Connor and Chris Masoe run at Ireland’s Johnny Sexton LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Mention in the French media of Uini Atonio and Rory Kockott being called up is interesting when it is considered that New Zealand tightheads and South African scrum-halves have been used regularly in the opening rounds this season.While hooker, flanker, centre and full-back appear to be positions of depth for France (in quantity at least), an under pressure and usually pragmatic Saint-André may opt to follow the blueprint used by his Top 14 colleagues for other positions. With an absence of traditional French flair, the next time we see another ‘try from the end of the world’ it may be created and scored by those from around the world. In his first stats-based piece, Russ Petty looks at the breakdown of personnel in the multi-national Top 14…center_img Last season’s Top 14 was fiercely contested with just a 16-point gap separating top side Toulon and Brive in ninth place. As a comparison, the difference between first and ninth place was 43 points in the Aviva Premiership and 47 points in the Guinness Pro12. A notable change in attitude towards away fixtures is a factor in the increased competitiveness in the French league, but perhaps more significant is the composition and similarity of the squads. Are the collective owners following the same blueprint for assembling a ‘perfect’ team?It may not be a huge surprise that the majority of imports to France are (in order) from South Africa, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, Tonga, Georgia, and Samoa. Of greater interest is the clear pattern of recruiting each nation’s iconic or traditionally strong position(s), as can be seen below.[Factors such as JIFF, Kolpak ruling, player eligibility / nationality means such a list can only be used as a rough squad guide rather than treated as fully accurate, as an example: Clermont prop Daniel Kötze, born in South Africa but now capped for France]Georgia on my bindRampaging flanker Mamuka ‘Gorgodzilla’ Gorgodze might take the headlines, but The Lelos are better associated with churning out a seemingly endless supply of destructive scrummagers from the prop factories in Tbilisi. The sides without one of these (usually) bearded behemoths are in the minority and an average of four Georgian props start in each round.Bok brains and brawnIn a league oft characterised as set piece orientated, it makes sense to head to South Africa for aggressive enforcers and lineout technicians in the engine room. With the likes of Juandré Kruger and Bakkies Botha are winning ball in the air or throwing their weight around, there has also been an increase in the number of South African scrum-halves brought in to manage the game, with an average of 4 starters each round this year.Brain power: Castres’ South Africa-born scrum-half Rory Kockott bossing playBacking BlackNew Zealand is well represented at prop, No 8, fly-half, centre and wing and an explanation for that variety would be the different heritages involved. As an example: powerful No 8 Alex Tulou who was born in American Samoa or prop Saimone Taumoepeau from Tonga. Bayonne bruiser Charles Ollivon stood out in the first round not just for his strong carrying but also his status as a French qualified No 8, seemingly an endangered species, with an average of just 5 starting per round last season. Only he and (Durban-born) Antonie Claassen made starting line-ups in the first week, compared to Lee, Grice, Clarkin, Whetton and Tulou from New Zealand. Along with the dominant back-row ball-carriers and tighthead props, midfield guile is also a sought after commodity with an average of five Kiwi centres appearing each round.Fijian firepowerHaving overpowered an opponent up front or unlocked their defence, a finisher is still required and that role is increasingly being given to a Fijian flyer. Lethal pace and ability to beat defenders also means a defensively minded side can chose to sit back and strike on the counter.  Only 34 of the 81 tries scored so far this season were by French players and there has been a steady decline in French representation in the top ten try scorers each year, with just Sofiane Guitoune making the list last season. In contrast, Fijians Talebula, Nagusa, Nayacalevu and Nalaga all managed eight or more tries. With Brive seeking to gain an advantage in the recruitment arms race by opening an academy in Nadi, Fiji, Noa Nakaitaci is unlikely to be the last example of a French convert.Effect on Les Bleus?In Confessions of a Rugby Mercenary, John Daniell described top level rugby as: “not really a choice between the rapier and the cudgel: everyone has a cudgel, so you better have one too, and the bigger the better. But you would be well-advised to have a rapier as well, and to know how to handle it”.When France coach Philippe Saint-André checks the Top 14 armoury, he may find those weapons aren’t all available for his selection.Breakdown of starters by nationality for rounds one and two of current Top 14 seasonlast_img read more

As always with these scams, ‘winners’ are asked for a sizeable amount of cash up-front before the ‘prize’ can be processed.David Locke, Head of Charity Services at the Charity Commission said: “We’re warning people not to be fooled into thinking that this is a legitimate lottery because of its supposed association with the two charities named in the email – neither charity has anything to do with this scam. Advertisement “Any genuine correspondence from a charity will include a registered charity number and contact details, which can be checked on our website. These sorts of scams are rare, but don’t become a victim of those who prey on society’s trust in charity.”The Commission suggested that the publicvisit the Metropolitan Police’s Fraudalert for details of various sorts of fraud, including ‘lotto frauds’ of this type.

RSF urges House of Lords to amend Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill to protect press freedom

RSF highlighted measures in Clauses 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 13, and 21 that constitute unlawful, unnecessary, and disproportionate infringement of the fundamental right to freedom of expression.Specifically, the bill’s proposed criminalisation of the “reckless” expression of opinion, the publication of images of costume, the viewing of vaguely defined information, and entering or remaining in “off bounds” areas overseas could be used to restrict or shut down legitimate reporting. Further, the proposed increase in maximum sentences would have a chilling effect on journalistic activities, and the proposed increased powers to enter and search home addresses, and new powers of stop, search, detention, and retention and copying of material at ports and borders, threaten the confidentiality of journalistic sources.“It is worrying that the House of Commons failed to address the serious concerns raised by RSF and other human rights and free expression groups over provisions of the bill that would threaten press freedom and could criminalise responsible journalists investigating and reporting on issues of public interest. We call on the House of Lords to strike these problematic measures from the bill, or at a minimum to include clear and specific exemptions for journalistic activities”, said UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent.The full text of RSF’s briefing for the House of Lords is available via download below.The UK is ranked 40th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Required fields are marked * One of the countless prescient scenes in Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 finds the hero, Montag, struggling to memorize a simple Bible verse as a toothpaste commercial blares over the radio on a commuter train. Living in Bradbury’s imagined America in which substantive reading and critical thinking are illegal has accustomed Montag to superficial, lazy communication. Incapable of focusing his thoughts, he is quickly overwhelmed by the aggressive, simplistic sales pitch invading his ears.Bradbury wrote that scene as a nightmare. But for the corporate and political champions of recent campaign spending cases, that dark moment in Fahrenheit may read like a dream come true. To agenda-driven individuals and groups, the Supreme Court’s invalidation of campaign contribution limits is a green light to deluge the public with torrents of political ads intended to overwhelm us through relentless sloganeering. Fortunately, we don’t have to fall for it.Building on its controversial Citizens United ruling (which struck down campaign giving limits on corporations, organizations and unions), the Supreme Court’s recent 5–4 decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Elections Commission clears the way for unrestricted political contributions by individuals, further empowering that small group of deep-pocketed donors who already flex disproportionate influence over candidates and political parties through their anonymous support of PACs. Congresswoman Judy Chu was right when she warned that these high court rulings, which equate campaign spending with free speech, could “effectively drown out the voices of average Americans and replace them with special interests who can afford to fund entire campaigns on their own.”In order to protect our democracy, voters will have to become more critical and discerning. We’ll have to study issues and candidates carefully and resist the persuasive power of superficial, sensory-assaulting media advertising – especially TV ads — that the combined power of McCutcheon and Citizens United will certainly unleash. In short, We The People will have to use our minds to overcome their money.Relying primarily on political commercials has never been a smart way to make voting decisions. Ads are intended to persuade — even manipulate — but not to inform. Reading credible newspapers and magazines (be they in print or online) is still the best way to gain understanding of the issues. Supplementing that with study of candidate and party web pages, reading fact-checking watchdog sites and watching candidates’ speeches in their entirety online helps round out the picture. Yes, that’s kind of a lot of work. But democracy doesn’t function properly unless We The People do our part.The good news is that political advertising isn’t as effective as many would-be influencers of power may think. Multiple studies of Presidential and Congressional elections over the last ten years indicate that TV ads have a limited impact on election outcomes. After comparing previous research with his own analysis of the 2012 presidential race, Dan Hopkins of Georgetown University concluded in the Washington Post that, “In all likelihood, even major shifts in advertising would have produced only minor shifts toward the candidate benefiting from those shifts.”So, while Citizens United and McCutcheon give a large and unfair advantage to a small group of wealthy political contributors, it may be a stretch to say that our system has been put up for sale. We The People still have the power to resist the media onslaught and to think, analyze, draw conclusions and make decisions.As the Clarence Darrow-esque lawyer Henry Drummond declares in the play Inherit the Wind, the ability to think is the one virtue that sets humans above the other creatures of the Earth. And this ability to think is both our shield and sword against those who would turn us into a nation of malleable Montags. Exercising our ability to think is how We The People will protect and preserve our democracy. The focused power of our minds will win out over the avalanche of their money.Thank you for listening.

Sewer gas scare at Limerick City flats

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGShydrogen sulfidelimerickLimerick City and County CouncilUpper Thomas Street Facebook TENANTS at a Limerick city centre apartment building, where raw sewerage has been an ongoing issue, are fearing for their health after a suspected case of hydrogen sulfide poisoning.The victim, a man in his fifties, has since been moved out of his Thomas Street flat after claims that he blacked out last month from exposure to H2S, a colourless, flammable gas that is highly toxic.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Also known as ‘sewer gas’, mild exposure can cause headaches, and eye irritation, while in the worst case scenario its presence can lead to unconsciousness and even death.The Limerick Post was informed that the man’s daughter found him in an unconscious state in his apartment and managed to revive him.Another tenant, who has had a kidney transplant, is also looking to be moved out of the flats due to the ongoing sewerage problem in the building and possible exposure to the poisonous H2S gas.One resident told the Limerick Post this week that he had asked the Council to find him somewhere else to live but was told that this would be in breach of his Rental Accommodation Scheme (RAS) contract. RAS is a social housing support run by the local authority.“I didn’t sign up to live in sewerage. No one should have to live like this and it’s having an impact on my health now,” a tenant claimed.“I am all blocked up in my chest, a problem I never had before, and I have skin irritations and rashes constantly. It couldn’t be good for you and I want out of here,” he insisted.Tony Kiely, who runs a business at 35 Upper Thomas Street, has complained about raw effluent pouring out of the neighbouring apartment block for almost six months. Mr Kiely claims the landlord, a city-based accountant, and the Council have not properly addressed the problem of sewerage pouring out of the drains inside the building’s lobby.“They just keep passing the buck and when they do come up it’s just a quick fix. There was someone up here at 5am one morning last week doing something, but there’s been no digging, so it’s just another temporary solution,” said Mr Kiely.“The tenants are getting sick all the time because of it and all want out of there now. This problem has been going on for months and months,” he claimed.When the Limerick Post first raised the issue with the local authority last month, it insisted that the connection from the property to the sewer on the road is the landlord’s responsibility to fix. In a statement this week the Council said, “Limerick City and County Council is only responsible for the main sewer and its upkeep, the connection from the public sewer to the property is the property owner’s responsibility and this has been explained to the landlord.”Limerick City and County Council served notice (under section 110 of the Public Health Ireland Act 1878) on the landlord about the issue a number of weeks ago and he had until Wednesday August 27, 2014, to comply.“If he hasn’t complied by that date, we will be recommending prosecution and go to court,” the Council warned.Despite several attempts to contact him, there was no response from the landlord at the time of going to press.

Right of reputation can’t be protected at the cost of right to dignity”, the Court held.The criminal defamation case was filed by MJ Akbar in a Delhi Court in October 2018, after he was accused by several women of sexual harassment, following a tweet by Ramani as part of the ‘#MeToo’ movement, revealing that the person referred to as a sexual harasser in an earlier article written by her in ‘The Vogue’ was Akbar.The then Minister of State for External Affairs, Akbar initiated the defamation case after a slew of allegations of sexual harassment followed against him after Ramani’s tweet. His case is that before Ramani’s alleged defamatory tweet, he had enjoyed a “stellar reputation” in the society, which was damaged following her tweet and therefore she was liable for criminal defamation. Akbar has also claimed that Ramani’s tweet had led to a social media trial against him, something that cannot be permitted in a lawful society.Ramani, on her part, has claimed public interest, public good, and truth as her defense and argued that one accused of sexual misconduct cannot in the first place claim to have a stellar reputation, therefore was no question arising of the reputation being destroyed and defamation having occurred against Akbar.Ramani was summoned by the Court in the case in January 2019 and released on bail in February 2019.The arguments were earlier completed before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vishal Pahuja. However, following his transfer to the Karkardooma Court in November 2020, the final arguments started again before ACMM Ravindra Kumar Pandey. The recording of evidence of the witnesses was done before ACMM Pahuja.When ACMM Pandey took charge of the case, he had asked the parties if there was a chance to compromise. However, Ramani said that she was standing by her statements and refused to settle the matter.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Former LSL director invests in estate agency marketing platform BriefYourMarket
