Martin Johnson reflects on England win over Wales in Lions context

first_imgMonday Feb 20, 2017 Martin Johnson reflects on England win over Wales in Lions context England legend and former Test coach Martin Johnson has reflected on the thrilling Wales vs England Six Nations clash from round two, singling out Owen Farell as a key man in Eddie Jones’ ambitions of claiming back to back titles. If selected by Jones to play against Italy at Twickenham, Farrell will win his 50th England cap; he has also already amassed over 500 international points, appeared at a World Cup in 2015 and toured with the British & Irish Lions in 2013 in Australia.Farrell was selected on a six-man shortlist for World Player of the Year in the summer and despite missing out on the top gong, he has become England’s Mr Reliable; both off the kicking tee and with his creativity behind the scrum.He has been promoted to England’s vice-captaincy role and skippered the side during the last-gasp win against Wales in Cardiff following the withdrawal of skipper Dylan Hartley after just 46 minutes.Farrell, who helped Saracens win the domestic and European double in 2016, has formed a formidable midfield pairing with Leicester-bound George Ford and is now the first name on England boss Jones’ team-sheet. Last week Johnson and legendary Ireland skipper Brian O’Driscoll described Farrell as an outside shot at captaining the Lions this summer in New Zealand, while World Cup winning boss Sir Clive Woodward thinks he’s the heir apparent to Hartley’s leadership crown for England.“I think he can do either, fly-half or centre, that’s the great thing with him,” said the former England captain, who is running the rule over each of the home nations’ candidates for this summer’s Lions Tour to New Zealand.“I just like his demeanour, I always have. He’s been through a World Cup, he’s been around for five or six years now with the England team, he’s very experienced.“He took a hit from [Ross] Moriarty, that’s that type of game, but he took it, got up and got on with it, and then at the end of the game made the pass when he needed to, to put England in to win the game.”It was Farrell’s combination with Ford that set up the try for Elliot Daly in Wales, expertly capitalising on Jonathan Davies’ failure to find touch with a kick.And while the Welshman still made Johnson’s team of the week as well, it was Farrell that was the most talked about centre of the weekend, stealing 62 per cent of the conversation on Twitter to go with his four carries, 11 points, one clean break and one defender beaten.Martin Johnson is an Ambassador for British & Irish Lions Principal Partner Standard Life Investments.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

He’s one of the hardest recruiting players out there, texting me every day, telling me stuff about the school, and it’s one thing to be wanted by the coaching staff and the players already there, but the recruits, that spoke volumes about the program.”Barlow, a 6-10 center with a 7-foot wingspan, was named to the all-district team as a junior last season at Lloyd V. Berkner High School. He has a four-star ranking by ESPN. He is ranked as the No. 14 center in the country and the No. 14 player in the state of Texas by 247Sports.“Russell has a big, strong body with very good hands and a soft touch around the basket,” Dixon said. “We expect him to improve due to his strong work ethic.” The Horned Frogs celebrate their NIT championship as the buzzer sounds on their victory over Georgia Tech.

Guest Opinion | Robin Salzer: Save Local Businesses with Christmas Gift Cards

Required fields are marked * If COVID-19 concerns and social distancing have you skipping a daily or weekly trip to your favorite Pasadena coffee shop, restaurant or retail store, please consider purchasing a Christmas gift card now.Our small, locally owned businesses especially restaurants often operate on exceptionally small profit margins, which means a drop in sales of 20 percent or even less could have a severe detrimental effect on that businesses survival. At stake is not only the sustainability of the business, but also the employment of its staff.Though virtually every industry has been touched by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the restaurant industry that has been completely turned on its head.The lack of knowledge about the pandemic, the bewilderment of mixed messages and the utter dismay of restaurants being closed while other retail businesses are open and flourishing is pure unadulterated frustration for restaurant owners.Our restaurants were given a great opportunity to operate with outdoor dining by Mayor Victor Gordo, outgoing Mayor Terry Tornek and our City Council until Gov. Gavin Newsom shut down the state again two weeks ago. Takeout, curbside pickup and delivery are again the only options available at our Pasadena restaurants. As the retired owner of Robin’s Wood Fire BBQ I know firsthand that it will be extremely difficult if not impossible for some restaurants to survive this second closure with solely offering takeout and delivery.Every resident, visitor and foodie in Pasadena can help their favorite restaurant make it through the holidays by purchasing a gift card or a party pack of their favorite restaurant’s dishes or sides.During this shutdown a gift card is a fantastic way for you to help support a local business even if you can’t patronize it during this pandemic. The idea here is that you are giving this business some cash now, cash flow, to help them make it through the holidays and you can use the gift card down the line when the shutdowns are lifted and things get back to as normal as can be. Many restaurants and retailers allow you to purchase a gift card online.If you’re ordering takeout while you’re staying at home now is also a good time to focus on ordering your food from a smaller locally owned restaurant in Pasadena.Chances are pretty good that McDonald’s and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse are going to be able to survive months of slumped sales, but the same might not be true for your local Mexican restaurant, burger joint or steakhouse. If you’re torn between a chain restaurant and a favorite locally owned spot, choose the small guy.As we all continue to adapt to a new reality, the best way that we can keep ourselves safe and support local small businesses is to consciously shop locally (online or over the phone) when possible.Yes, it might not always be the most convenient — you may have to wait a little longer or pay a little more than you would at a big-box retailer. But, as Pasadena and the country struggle to overcome a once in a century pandemic, practicing patience, empathy and support towards our neighbors is paramount to our recovery as a city and a nation. A decision as small as purchasing a gift card from your favorite local restaurant or book store could make all the difference to the owners and staff of these businesses and would be an incredible Christmas gift for all.Robin Salzer is the former owner of Robin’s Wood Fire BBQ. He is also a former city commissioner and the founder of the Pasadena Hot Meal Program.

Cop accused of killing colleague during Russian roulette-like game to appear in court

first_imgcmannphoto/iStock(ST. LOUIS) — A St. Louis policeman is set to appear in court Thursday morning one week after he allegedly shot and killed his colleague while playing a Russian roulette-like game. Nathanial Hendren, 29, is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action in the death of his fellow officer, 24-year-old Katlyn Alix. Alix was off-duty at Hendren’s apartment in St. Louis, Missouri, when she was shot in the chest just before 1 a.m. local time on Jan. 24. Hendren and his patrol partner who was present — both on-duty at the time — rushed Alix to the hospital where she soon died. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department initially called it an “accidental” killing in which an officer “mishandled a firearm.” But investigators later determined that Hendren and Alix were playing a dangerous game with a revolver. According to a probable cause statement from the police department, Hendren emptied the revolver’s chambers, put one bullet back in and spun the cylinder. He then pointed the weapon away and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire. Alix took the firearm, pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger. Still nothing happened. Hendren then took back the revolver, pointed it at Alix and pulled the trigger. This time, the gun discharged the chambered round, according to the probable cause. Hendren’s partner, who has not yet been named, advised investigators that he had told Alix and Hendren that “they shouldn’t be playing with guns and that they were police officers,” according to the probable cause. The officer said he “felt uncomfortable” with the situation and “didn’t want to have any part of it. He was leaving Hendren’s apartment when he heard the gunshot,” according to the probable cause. The police department immediately launched an internal investigation into the incident and placed both Hendren and his partner on paid administrative leave. The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office launched its own investigation with the help of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. The St. Louis circuit attorney, Kimberly Gardner, announced on Jan. 25 that her office had filed charges against Hendren. “This is a devastating incident for Katlyn Alix’s husband, parents, family and for our entire community,” Gardner said in a statement. “We will do whatever is necessary to get to the truth of this incident. Katlyn’s family and this community deserve nothing less.” On Monday, Gardner sent a letter to Col. John Hayden Jr., the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department commissioner, and Judge Jimmie Edwards, the city’s public safety director, raising concerns about how the investigation was handled in its early stages. Gardner said she believed there was probable cause that drugs or alcohol may have been “a contributing factor” in the shooting. Members of her team began preparing search warrants to have blood drawn from both Hendren and his partner, but police informed them that the local hospital will not honor the warrants — even though that is a common procedure in criminal investigations, Gardner said. Gardner said her team was later told that, “in lieu of the more exact blood specimen test,” the police department’s internal affairs division had conducted a breathalyzer test and taken urine samples from both officers under Garrity rights, which shield public employees from self-incrimination. “This is a serious problem in objective investigative tactics,” Gardner said in her letter. “Taking these tests under the cover of Garry appears as an obstructionist tactic to prevent us from understanding the state of the officers during the commission of this alleged crime.” Gardner also expressed concern over the police department’s swift assessment that Alix’s death was an accident. “In my opinion, it is completely inappropriate for investigators to approach a crime scene that early in the investigation with a predisposed conclusion about the potential outcome of a case,” she said. “I understand your need to get information out to the public quickly regarding officer-involved shooting cases, however, the labeling of any criminal incident as an accident prior to a full investigation is a violation of our duty as objective fact finders.” Alix, a military veteran who graduated from the St. Louis Police Academy in January 2017, was laid to rest Wednesday. Her family is demanding answers. “The way how everything went down, I don’t like it,” Alix’s mother, Aimee Chadwick, told CBS affiliate KMOV-TV in an interview. “I think there’s more answers. We need more answers. She loved her job. Even on her days off she would go visit all her friends down there because like I guess when you’re a police officer, [you have] that close bond with everyone.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Interview: Christopher May of new global property portal Residential People

first_imgResidential People, now live in five countries – with major agents on board including Lambert Smith Hampton, Belvoir, Avison Young, Redgrave and 99 Homes – may be on to something really good.If your local area of business is feeling a little crowded – and competition from online agents is growing what can you do? Well, one ‘new’ way is emerging, as a young global property portal settles in to the UK market.Residential People provides estate agents with a new source of buyer leads by opening doors to foreign investment, attracting a slew of international eyes on listings. The free to list portal plans to disrupt the status quo and support agents with its free to list solution, currently operating across the UK, South Africa, UAE, India and Nigeria.“We are targeting emerging and established markets,” says Christopher May, Commercial People Co-Director (pictured, left).“Alongside the UK, we are currently operating across South Africa, the UAE and India. Despite our brand infancy, we are well on the way to being one of the biggest portals in the UAE in terms of listings and on the way to becoming one of the largest in India as well.”“Our USP is simple. Every agent we’ve spoken to is concerned about the rising costs of property portals; Residential People is a free to list global property portal that helps to eliminate some of the expenses agencies face,” he says.Property portalFigures produced by The Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate, show that London is the number one ranking city in the world for capital appreciation and despite the uncertainty over Brexit, investment in the capital and the UK at large remains strong.“With the global reach of Residential People, any UK estate agent can tap into the growing foreign investment across the UK, gaining more exposure on their listings free of charge. not only from potential customers in the UK but also from successful expats across the UAE and beyond and we have even registered now in China.”May added, “We also want to make it abundantly clear that our aim is to work with agents and build an alternative to some of the portals that exist today. With agents’ support, we are hoping to disrupt the status quo and give agents an alternative to the current monopoly.”www.residentialpeople.comportal residential people Christopher May May 31, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

A welcome home

first_imgBy 2000, Eric Maskin needed a break. Then the Louis Berkman Professor of Economics at Harvard, his days were a blur of graduate student advising, teaching, and committee meetings. Wanting more time to pursue his research, he did the improbable: He left Harvard.Now, the prodigal economist has returned.“It’s interesting, coming back to this department, how many of the same people are still here,” Maskin said one afternoon, his spacious Littauer Center office still half-buried under cardboard boxes. “They even look pretty much the same — maybe a little bit grayer.”Maskin brought back a few gray hairs of his own after more than a decade at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, N.J. But when he returned to the department as a professor of economics in January, he was also toting a hefty gold medal — the 2007 Nobel Prize in economics.Maskin received the honor for a career’s worth of contributions to the field of mechanism design, or as he explains it, “economics in reverse.” Now a staple of game theory economics, mechanism design theory grew in part from Maskin’s work at Harvard, his on-and-off home since his undergraduate days more than 40 years ago.Instead of starting with a situation and trying to predict the outcome it leads to, market design economists start with the outcome they want and try to create a scenario — the “game” in game theory — that gives rise to that outcome. Unlike the vast majority of economics, which studies markets and world conditions as they are, Maskin and his colleagues explore how markets could be created or tweaked to achieve social goals.“I get annoyed by the claim that ‘the invisible hand’ — i.e., markets by themselves — will take care of everything,” he said. “We know, from theory, that for very good reasons some markets are not going to work the way we would wish them to,” a statement to which the financial and housing market crashes of recent years attest, he added.Maskin, who grew up in small-town Alpine, N.J., arrived at Harvard in 1968 to study mathematics. On a whim, he took a course with the legendary economist Kenneth Arrow that covered “a hodgepodge of topics from the frontier of economic theory,” including the nascent field of mechanism design.“This work was a revelation to me,” Maskin wrote in his Nobel autobiography. “It had the precision, rigor, and sometimes the beauty of pure mathematics and also addressed problems of real social importance — an irresistible combination.”Maskin stayed on to pursue a doctorate in applied mathematics, a flexible program that allowed him to explore his budding interests in game theory and mechanism design. Arrow, his adviser, urged him on, despite the fact that no textbooks on the subject existed at the time. Maskin completed his Ph.D. in just four years from Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.After a postdoctoral year in England, he took a job in 1977 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) economics department, where he taught the first course in game theory, then viewed as something of a fringe topic.“Within less than 10 years, there was a revolution,” Maskin said. “By the mid-1980s, it was required as part of the core curriculum.”He left MIT for Harvard in 1985. At both universities, he was known for mentoring students, many of whom became his close collaborators. But after 15 years, the place that once brought vitality to his work had become a drain for him. Maskin left Harvard for IAS, an independent institution that gave him free rein to tackle his research.The move to Princeton coincided with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy physicist Albert Einstein’s former home, where Einstein lived from 1936 until his death in 1955. (The property can only be sold to IAS faculty.) On Halloween, Maskin would dress as Einstein, while his wife would carve an E=mc2 pumpkin for the front porch.Then came the Nobel Prize, which he shared with Roger B. Myerson and the late Leonid Hurwicz. Maskin steadfastly maintains that the honor had little effect on his work or standing within the world of economics, but the prize did bring mechanism design to the broader public.“The Nobel is a very public thing,” he said. “Having the wider audience has been interesting and worthwhile, but it also makes you think carefully about what you say, because it might end up in the papers.”The decision to return to Harvard was prompted by a combination of factors — “these things usually are,” Maskin said. He missed the intellectual stimulation of daily interactions with faculty and students. He and his wife wanted to be closer to their 25-year-old disabled son, who recently moved to an assisted-living community in Western Massachusetts. (The couple also has a daughter, a senior at Bryn Mawr College.)Maskin is eager to reunite with his chamber music group, a rotating lineup of Boston-area economists, with whom he plays clarinet. He’s also hoping to find some suitable squash partners. “I’m a mediocre player, but an enthusiastic one,” he said. During the interview, Ben Friedman, William Joseph Maier Professor of Political Economy and a fellow wallbanger, stuck his head in the door to say hello. “He’s much too good for me,” Maskin lamented after he left.And, of course, there’s the familiar rush of being back in front of a chalkboard. This semester, Maskin is teaching an undergraduate course in game theory, his first in years.“I wasn’t sure, when the course started, what was going to happen,” he said. “Was I just going to get up there and do all the talking? But the students are full of things to say.”It turns out that Harvard still has something to offer a Nobel Prize winner. “I’d been sitting in relative isolation from students at the institute,” Maskin said. “I didn’t realize how much I’d missed that energy.”last_img read more
