  • A Q&A with Bath prop Henry Thomas

    first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Kinetica Sports is the official sports nutrition partner to Bath Rugby. For a chance to win a tickets to Bath v Saracens thanks to Kinetica, click here.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Henry Thomas talks Bath, rugby heroes and accounting Advertising FeatureHow does Bath compare to Sale?Farleigh House is a unique place, and a great location to come and train every day. The organisation as a whole is impressive, but there’s a real focus on developing each individual player which is a real draw for any professional athlete in a team sport. That said, Bath and Sale might be miles apart geographically, but both teams have a positive approach to the game and play some exciting rugby.Have you always been a prop or did you start out in a different position?I think I was always destined to be a prop. I tried my hand at No 8 in my early teens and even had a go at centre in sevens, but I’ve pretty much always been a prop.Which players have you tried to model yourself on?The big one for me is probably Carl Hayman, especially when I was a teenager. He was playing for the All Blacks and then moved to Newcastle. He was quite tall for a tighthead, but one of the best scrummagers in the game and he could run around the field a bit as well.Prop idol: All Black Carl Hayman in action for Newcastle. Photo: Getty ImagesProps seem to be coming through to the top level at a younger age now – what do you make of the development of front-rowers and how much difference does game time at a young age make?Game time makes a huge difference. I wouldn’t be where I am today without getting a bit of a lucky break at Sale with a few guys unfortunately having to retire. You learn from all your experiences on the pitch and there is absolutely no substitute for game time in the front row, no matter what level it is. That’s probably why there are a few more coming through at a younger age nowadays: there’s more opportunities for valuable game time with the Aviva A League and options for loans or dual-registration.Front-rowers rarely play a full 80 minutes these days. How does this affect your performance and recovery?center_img It’s such an attritional position that playing 80 minutes is tough – in fact, playing any minutes in the front row is tough. Usual time of play is 50-60 minutes but it still feels like you’ve played 80 when you come off. It takes a few days to recover from the collisions and impact on the body and that 10-15 minutes does make a difference. We’re lucky at this level in that we have the best medical and nutritional advice which helps us with preparation and recovery.What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?At a young age it’s important you don’t neglect your skills. Players in all positions should develop their core skills in order to be able to perform at any level.Hard line: Henry Thomas on the charge in Bath colours. Photo: Getty ImagesWho’s been your toughest opponent?I’ve had a few tough ones over the years. When I was slightly younger I had some tough battles with Nick Wood at Gloucester. Over the last couple of seasons it’s been Marcos Ayerza, who’s one of the best looseheads in the game scrummaging-wise, so it’s always a hard battle against him.What do you get up to away from rugby – hobbies, studies etc?I spend a lot of time with the guys. We have a bit of a coffee club going in town. We play a lot of golf together, and one of my best mates is a golfer so I try and get out on the course whenever I can. I’m studying accounting as well, which is keeping me busy in my spare time. Pass master: Henry Thomas shows his skill-set for Bath. Photo: Getty Images last_img read more

  • Video: Ashes to go

    first_img Rector Martinsville, VA February 28, 2014 at 9:07 pm I’ve been ambivalent about Ashes to Go for a while. On one hand, my own ministry is very much motivated by looking for ways to “take it to the streets”. On the other hand, something just feels a bit off about Ashes to Go.My friend, the Rev. Michael Sniffen (of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn, NY) articulates a lot of what’s been lurking under my discomfort in his recent parish blog post (linked below), and he does it from the perspective of a priest who REALLY takes his ministry to the streets everyday throughout the year.You may have read about Michael here on ENS (as well as many secular news outlets). He’s been taking his ministry to the streets by serving as a Chaplain to the Occupy Wall Street movement, allowing his parish to serve as a primary hub for Occupy Sandy hurricane relief efforts, hosting artists and arts events, and countless other smaller ways. Some were so threatened by his “taking it to the streets” that his church was actually the victim of an arson attack just over a year ago.Public ministry is vitally important, and also sometimes risky. But it’s not enough to simply nod in that direction once a year.I comment his blog post to your discernment: http://stlukeandstmatthew.org/ashes-to-go-or-not-to-go-that-seems-to-be-the-question Rector Washington, DC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME February 23, 2013 at 2:48 pm This year, in the two weeks or so before Ash Wednesday, and anticipating a repeat of last year’s “Ashes To Go” outreach that was reported in 2012, I conducted a very UN-scientific survey. I was on the fence about joining the “ATG” movement. When the opportunity presented itself, I asked a variety of folks that I know about “Ashes to Go”. There were people with various levels of connectedness to any church or not. Typically, I’d pose a question such as: “What would you think about passing a priest standing on the sidewalk in town next to a sign declaring “Ashes to Go” on Ash Wednesday? The responses were cause for concern, amusement and skepticism about the idea. These are some of the actual reactions: “What is Lent, anyway?”; “That’s weird.”; “Really, you mean right on the town green?”; “No kidding, I didn’t know they still did Lent.”; “That’s new, isn’t it? Does that count for not going to church?”; “Who’s ashes do they use?”; “Well, I suppose if you can’t lead a horse to water, bring the water to them!”; “Well, if people are too lazy to go to church to get ashes why enable them?” “That’s a great idea, I always forget its Ash Wednesday until its too late.” — My best Ash Wednesday story happened when I was in seminary. While studying at General Theological Seminary, N.Y. I had the chance to assist with the Imposition of Ashes at Trinity Church, Wall Street where literally hundreds of people received ashes all day long. A woman approached my station, a long line behind her, and leaned forward to whisper something. “I’m not a Roman Catholic!” she whispered apologetically. I leaned back, looked her in the eye and responded, “That’s O.K., neither am I” and proceeded to sign her forehead with an ashen cross. “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Albany, NY Comments (4) Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET February 28, 2014 at 11:26 pm I also commend Michale Sniffen’s excellent reflection. Here’s yet another perspective on this recent phenomenon http://reluctantxtian.wordpress.com/2014/02/21/ash-kicking-or-why-i-dont-think-ash-wednesday-is-a-good-day-for-peddling-religious-goods/ in which the author wonders if this is just a gimmick, offering “cheap grace” and “mortality on the fly”. In the absence of any solid pastoral theology as its foundation, I share the same concern.I think the priest in the video inadvertently names the animating dynamic of “Ashes to Go”. Oh, to be sure, there are good intentions, but there is also unmistakable anxiety. At the end of the clip, the priest says she offers “Ashes to Go”, “….in the hope that, next year, they’ll find their way back to church.” The purpose I fear, is not to ‘bring the church to the world’ or ‘make the church more relevant in people’s lives’ or to have “opportunities for grace”.That may be what we tell ourselves, but that’s not the real reason. It’s our own anxiety about row after row of empty pews. It’s in the hope that, if the church goes out to people, people will come into church. That’s just not going to happen, not unless the church goes out to people offering more than just a smudge of ashes on their forehead and more than just one day a year.I think the ancient Rabbi, Gamaliel, offers us some wisdom in this. We shall see if this is simply a fad or if it will last. My hunch? By the end of this decade, we’ll not be seeing much evidence of Ashes to Go. I suspect it is because it will not prosper the secret desire of helping people ‘find their way back to church.’ And, because good intentions, by themselves, have always paved the road that leads to a predictable destination.

  • Orange County assistance to Hurricane Maria survivors: By the numbers

    first_img An update on Hurricane Maria recovery efforts From Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonOrange County continues to support the ongoing recovery efforts to help both evacuees and those still residing in Puerto Rico. This article serves to provide another update on the County’s efforts to assist in the recovery of Post-Hurricane Maria.At the meeting of the Orange County Board of County Commissioners on December 19, 2017, the Board was presented with an update on the recovery efforts following the impacts of Hurricane Maria from Orange County Emergency Management. To date, the report from the Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) at the Orlando International Airport (OIA) offered the following flight arrival information for people coming in from Puerto Rico: 316 flights had transported 50,801 passengers in October; 351 flights had transported 56,126 passengers in November; and 216 flights had transported 34,078 passengers in December. In total, 883 flights had transported 141,005 passengers in the past 3 months following Hurricane Maria.Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonThe report provided an update on the number of people who had received assistance between October 3 and December 15: 4,811 of the evacuees were alone; and 8,332 of the evacuees were families. In total, the amount of people that were served upon arrival at OIA was 6,014, and the total amount of people served overall was 30,425. In addition, as of December 14, 2,953 Puerto Rican students have enrolled in Orange County Public Schools.United Way has provided hotel rooms for 210 families in need of a place to stay and 2,221 room nights, at a cost of $149,621. Orange County has partnered with United Way to fund these hotel rooms and may possibly be reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In addition, starting on November 10, it was reported that 438 Households (HHS) (1,182 people total) Puerto Ricans were in 458 Rooms, located in FEMA TSA Hotels in Orange County; 32% of the State’s evacuees from Puerto Rico are currently in Orange County. Furthermore, 1,370 HHS (3,393 people total) are staying in 1,436 rooms throughout the State of Florida. Lastly, the number of Puerto Ricans in Orange County that have registered with the FEMA Individual Assistance (IA) program was 1,956 HHS (3,995 people total).As of December 15, the following has been restored in Puerto Rico: 70% of power (60 of 69 areas restored), with expected restorations of 75% by February, 95% by March, and 100% by May; 95% of water supply (87% – 99% in 5 regions); 84% of fuel stations have been opened; 35 shelters are currently still operating, sheltering 574 people (with a total recorded peek amount of 3,700); 92% of stores have been opened; and 89% of telecommunication services have been restored.On December 29, OIA closed its MARC to allow the agencies providing support services to relocate their supplies and operations to the new MARC location off-site (provided by the State). The new Center opened on January 2, and is located at 6490 Hazeltine National Drive, Suite 170, Orlando, FL 32822. Additionally, the new location is on Lynx Bus Route 51, in close proximity to Orlando International Airport. Furthermore, the new MARC location is open to evacuees Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.The University of Central Florida (UCF), Valencia College, and Rollins College, 3 of Orange County’s well-known post-secondary institutions, are currently contributing to the County’s recovery efforts by offering programs and services for both current and prospective college students from Puerto Rico as well as for their families.Rollins College is offering the Discounted Transfer Spring Program designed to assist Puerto Rican and Caribbean students affected by recent hurricanes in continuing their collegiate studies with a discounted transfer program for the Spring semester. The program is extended to degree-seeking students who are currently enrolled in Puerto Rican and Caribbean colleges and universities with the goal that those displaced will have a chance to continue their studies. Students who are eligible and admitted to the program will be charged a flat fee of $8,500 for the Spring semester only; the fee covers tuition, room and board. For more information, residents can access the following link: https://apply.rollins.edu/register/spring2018_app.Valencia College has multiple education and training programs to assist evacuees coming to the Orlando Metro area.

The placement of the existing residence on the site presented a number of difficult challenges. The central placement of the house created awkward residual spaces whilst the orientation of the site was problematic as main living spaces faced south, devoid of direct sunlight. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe clients, with a growing young family, wanted two new bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry and a lounge. The brief was to increase the size of the residence and retain a sense of landscape. They also have a fairly extensive art collection and wanted wall space to display the work. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathOur strategy for the project was to draw the extension around the perimeter of the site to create a new courtyard and expose the living area to the northern orientation. The stretched circulation created by this approach was designed as gallery space, expanding and restricting at points depending on the placement of the artwork and creating a variety of spaces that punctuate the journey. Similarly the outdoor spaces push and pull against the extension in a dialogue that creates diverse landscaped experiences. The suburban front and back yard is reinterpreted in a manner that is more fluid and less defined than traditional subdivisions. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe articulation of multiple insertions and material definition create a series of ‘pod’-like accretions rather than a singular reading of the residence. The combination of these pods and the boundary occupation of the addition offer a complex relation with the landscape and climate as opposed to a house placed within a lawn.

  • Hurricane Florence draws FDNY group to North Carolina on 9/11 anniversary for storm preparation

    first_imgSpencer Platt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Hundreds of relatives of 9/11 victims gathered in downtown Manhattan Tuesday as they do on every anniversary of the attacks.First responders and everyday people who helped were honored and recognized with emotional messages and the somber ceremony marking the 17th year since terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers.But one group of New York firefighters will be paying tribute to their fallen colleagues in a different manner, hundreds of miles south of the footprint of the towers.They’re showing their respect through service, traveling to North Carolina to help prepare residents for the incoming Hurricane Florence.In an emotional Facebook post on the Fire Department of New York’s page, Battalion Chief Joseph Downey noted the decision by 82 task force members to go into the face of danger on the anniversary of the attacks.Downey, whose father, Deputy Chief Ray Downey, was killed on 9/11, said that for him and his team, the decision to go south serves as something of a “remembrance” for the first responders who died in the attacks.“I think it’s important that we carry on their legacy,” Downey wrote in the Facebook post. “It’s a tough day but it’s symbolic of what we do here in the city.“A lot of people came in on 9/11 to help us out, and we’ve done it the last couple of years, going to other places and helping them out. Everybody is excited, it’s a somber day but we have to look at it as we’re doing the right thing for those we lost and our loved ones. We’re first responders. Whether we’re Fire or PD, we’re always there to help people in the city, or somewhere else,” he wrote in the Facebook post.The group, called USAR New York Task Force 1, is trained in urban search and rescue, disaster recovery, and some members have specialized water and boat operator training.The group is being overseen by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and has done similar emergency response missions in other natural disasters like Hurricanes Katrina, Matthew, Harvey, Irma and Maria.“They’re going to pre-position us and get us in the area of where the storm is going to hit,” Downey wrote in the post, “and then they’ll move us to wherever we’re needed.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
