How the Eddie Jones Video Is Dividing Opinion

first_img How the Eddie Jones Video Is Dividing OpinionYesterday afternoon, popular Irish podcast Second Captain tweeted out a clip from last year of England head coach telling an audience that his team had lost to the “scummy Irish” in the 2017 Six Nations. With England hosting Grand Slam-chasing Ireland at Twickenham this weekend, it has certainly got people talking. — Dai Lama (@WelshDalaiLama) March 15, 2018Let us know your views on Twitter and Facebook, and if this really fires you up, why not send us your thoughts, to [email protected] You could feature on the letters page of the next issue of Rugby World magazine. I take it Eddie Jones won’t be catching the train after Wales-England next year. Serious look: Eddie Jones at the Stade de France, before England’s last outing History lesson for uncle Eddie. Wales has also produced major golf winners, Ryder Cup captains, Test cricketers, Grand National-winning jockeys, world boxing champions, Rugby League giants, world-beating footballers for Man Utd, Juventus, Real Madrid. We rest our case.— Peter Jackson (@JackoRugby) March 15, 2018 Agree with Will and I say that a woman with Wales running very strongly through her. Eddie Jones is a bright erudite man – he was playing for laughs. We all do it. https://t.co/7eq8NWu2qA— Gabby Logan (@GabbyLogan) March 14, 2018 This Eddie Jones stuff is just nonsense are we just so bloody sensitive now that no one can have a joke or a little banter without the outraged climbing on their high and mighty horse #relax— john kenny (@JohnKennyMedia) March 15, 2018 In an extended video from the talk for FUSO, a truck manufacturer part-owned by Mitsubishi, posted on YouTube – but that has since been taken down – Jones also says: “Who knows Wales? Are there any Welsh people here? So it’s this little shit place that has got 3m people. Three million!”Quickly after the videos went public, the RFU released a remorseful statement from Jones in which he said: “I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused – no excuses and I shouldn’t have said what I did. I’m very sorry.”In the aftermath, Jones’s words has divided opinion. Some feel that the coach was attempting to inject some humour into his talk, albeit in a ham-fisted way, while other feel that the England head coach has over-stepped the mark.Jones has already been in bother during these Six Nations when it emerged that the England head coach had been harassed by Scottish fans on a train ride to Manchester, following England’s Calcutta Cup loss to the Scots. In the wake of that incident, the Australian said: “If you talk about hate and you talk about rubbing people’s nose in the dirt, and all those sorts of things, it incites certain behaviours. Are they the sorts of behaviours that we want to see?”Related: Eddie Jones verbally abusedFor some Jones has shown hypocrisy with these comments, considering what was said in these clips. Some feel we should move on swiftly, especially after the coach apologised, and others are disgusted. Some are simply stunned.Check out the comments below, from Twitter. Do you agree with any of these? Eddie Jones calling wales a sh*t little place.. I get the fact he’s been stitched up but this is a Sh*t little place that has produced the greatest Rugby players that have ever lived.. Gareth Edwards,Phil Bennett, Jpr Williams, Barry John. Cmon Eddie Mush word !— John Hartson (@JohnHartson10) March 14, 2018 Oh dear Eddie Jones, what have you said….— Andy Goode (@AndyGoode10) March 14, 2018 Eddie Jones and scummy Ireland. A subject now dominating on @bbc5live. Clearly many offended while many see it as a poor joke with no offense intended. That is more where I amhttps://t.co/RcLvuGaj5H— owenslotTheTimes (@owenslot) March 15, 2018 This happens up and down all the countries in the 6 Nations – it’s called humour. Never serious, just gentle digs. https://t.co/cVTd0QNe0Q I know he is in a public position, but surely we all see this for what it is?? SURELY !!!!— Will Carling (@willcarling) March 14, 2018 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS So a bunch of drunk lads call Eddie Jones a “bald b******” and an “English c***” and the whole world’s up in arms. Eddie Jones calls Wales a “sh**y little place” and refers to “scummy Irish” and it’s normal banter?— Cammy Black (@CammyBlack) March 14, 2018 According to Twitter, I should either be gravely offended by the Eddie Jones comments, or should cop onto myself and stop acting the snowflake.Maybe it’s possible to find what he said pretty distasteful for a man of his position, withiut getting too het up.— Neil Treacy (@neil_treacy) March 15, 2018Related: Eddie Jones could be on a Wallabies shortlistlast_img read more

A client introduced me to a film producer in Belgium. He offered me to draw up the plans of several houses on land he had bought in Marrakech, Morocco. For many years I regularly visited Morocco. From the first trip I was bewitched by that country and the three projects studied to date are certainly fed, to varying degrees, by all the images and impressions gathered during my stays. Save this picture!© Jean-Marie MonthiersThe main difficulty was to define the program with the client. Originally we had planned to build three houses on this site. The project gradually decreased to finally the smallest of these three houses in order to preserve the field. The client informed me he bought a second larger plot (5 hectares) under the same conditions but closer to the Atlas in order to implement the other two houses. Save this picture!© Jean-Marie MonthiersFor this first project my desire was to establish a close dialogue with the land, vegetation and the atlas to the horizon. Being a small house of 170 sqm on a plot of 2.5 hectares, we had to create a dynamic equilibrium despite this difference of scale. We played with light and shadow to enhance and strengthen the volumes. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWe used local materials and techniques like clay, tadelack, Pierre de Ourika. We have preserved the wildness of the land although we have planted more than 500 trees. We doubled the walls to help deal with the climate, creating room high-rise and sun protections. Each region and country deserves architectural answers, adapted in line with requirements climatic, cultural and economic conditions.Save this picture!© Jean-Marie MonthiersProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: iGuzzini Illuminazione Spain Headquarters / MiAS ArquitectesArticlesArchitectural Lighting: Designing with Light and Space / Hervé Descottes with Cecili…Articles Share ArchDaily Year:  Houses “COPY” “COPY” Area:  171 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Kalashnikov: the worker and the rifle

first_imgMikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov, the designer of the famous AK-47 assault rifle, died at the age of 94 at the end of December 2013 in Izhevsk, Russia, where he had lived in a simple apartment house since just after World War II.He was the 17th child of a peasant family, born in western Siberia.The Russian government gave him a two-day state funeral, which President Vladimir Putin attended.Kalashnikov had fought in World War II as a tank commander. He started developing his weapon designs while he was recovering from wounds in a military hospital.Even though he had left school after the seventh grade, the Soviet army, recognizing his talent, trained and encouraged him to develop weapons that the Soviet soldier needed to fight effectively.The AK-47, a simple and reliable automatic weapon, went into production in 1947. It was carried by the Vietnamese in their thirty-year war against the French and U.S. imperialists and made such an impact on liberation struggles in Africa that a number of newly independent states put its outline on their flag or coats of arms. To Russian communists, this gesture was the best reward Kalashnikov ever received.Kalashnikov became a communist in 1952 and never wavered. He remained faithful to the ideals of socialism.In a message to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, he said: “Under the leadership of the Communist Party, my generation won a terrible war, built a powerful state, opened the path to outer space, created major artistic works and technical models. Today, Russian communists are the creative force that aims to recreate a great and strong nation. I am sure that the communists will not disappoint us.” ­­(solidarite-internationale-pcf.over-blog.net)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

No Christmas cheer as firms say no bash cash

first_imgNo Christmas cheer as firms say no bash cashOn 18 Nov 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Employers are saying “bah humbug” to Christmas parties as theyworry employee misbehaviour could lead to litigation. According to a survey of 2,000 UK employers by law firm Peninsula, almost 70per cent of employers in the UKhave abandoned financing Christmas parties thisyear. This is despite 73 per cent traditionally holding a Christmas party everyyear. The 69 per cent who are abandoning company festivities said they are doingso because they “don’t want the hassle”. Financial restraints are also dampening the Christmas spirit – 46 per centof employers complain that they cannot afford to host a party this year. Peter Done, managing director of Peninsula, said: “While [Christmasparties] are extremely enjoyable for most, employers must be aware that theparty venue is basically an extension of the office and that they remainresponsible for the well-being, protection and behaviour of their employees. “The danger at occasions such as this is the potential for misconductbetween members of staff, encouraged by the influence of alcohol. “Should a problem arise and a member of staff wishes to complain, thena company can be taken to an employment tribunal,” he said. How to avoid trouble– Employers and organisers of the event should remain”relatively free from intoxication” – Consider providing transportation home to prevent drinkdriving– Send a memo around the company office reminding all employeesof what is expected of them at the party – reminding employees of the dangersof excessive drinking and of mixing alcohol and medication – Bosses should supervise alcohol provision and set out someguidelines for dealing with over-intoxicated individuals.– The company should liaise with bar staff before the event anddiscuss ideas regarding the smooth-running of the partySource: Peninsula Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Heroes Honored in Walk for Wounded

first_imgVFW Post 6650 lends its facility and assists with the annual Walk for the Wounded each year. By MADDY VITALESusan Price became emotional Saturday when she addressed the crowd during the opening ceremony for the Walk for the Wounded in Ocean City.She spoke about how her son died a hero in a life that was cut short before he could fulfill all of his goals and dreams.Price’s son, Gunnery Sergeant Aaron Michael Kenefick, was killed in Afghanistan on Sept. 8, 2009 at age 30. He was a highly decorated member of the United States Marine Corps.“My Marine son was a star athlete and could have gone to college on a scholarship,” Price said. “He was highly decorated. He was known as a Marine’s Marine.”Gold Star mother Susan Price, of Tampa Fla., speaks to the audience about her fallen son, Gunnery Sergeant Aaron Michael Kenefick.Kenefick loved to mentor and had a toughness, but also a compassionate side, to guiding his fellow servicemen, she noted.“He used to say, ‘Momma, I know how to build a man up without breaking him down,’” she recalled.Price, of Tampa, Fla., a National Gold Star mother, spoke about how her story is no different than so many others: families torn apart with the loss of service men and women.The ceremony at the Music Pier kicked off the Walk for the Wounded event. It featured a three-mile walk from the Music Pier at Eighth Street to 14th Street.Army Chief Warrant Officer Trevor Jenni sang the National Anthem during the ceremony with a little help from his daughter to the applause of the audience.The Color Guard displays the flags at the beginning of the ceremony.Dignitaries who attended the ceremony included Ocean City Councilmen Keith Hartzell, Michael DeVlieger and Antwan McClellan.Money raised from the Walk for the Wounded goes to support Operation First Response, an organization that has helped thousands of military families with both financial and emotional support to wounded soldiers and their loved ones.Price and the other featured speaker, Lt. Col. Shoshannah B. Lane, who served in Iraq, each gave heartfelt stories of their experiences.Lt. Col. Shoshannah B. Lane shares her story about how Operation First Response helped her brother.Lane served in Iraq in support of Iraqi Freedom, in Bagram, Afghanistan, to support Operation Enduring Freedom, and as the Strategic Outreach Officer for the Chief of Staff of the Army in the Pentagon.She is a highly decorated soldier, awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, the Combat Action Badge, Senior Aviator Badge, Parachutist Badge, and Air Assault BadgeBut she spoke as if she was just an ordinary person. Lane attended Absegami High School in Galloway Township. And for the last 24 years she has served in the military well.Although she grew up in a military family, she did not have any real interest in going into the Army until she got a brochure in the mail.“I thought it would be cool,” she said. “Over the years my perspective changed. For some it is a way to go to college. For some it is a means to support a family.”Crowds listen to the speakers.For Lane, it is because she believes in serving her country. “We do not give allegiance to kings or queens, or even a president,” she told the audience.Rather, the military serves an ideal and stands for freedom, she said.Her brother, who was in the military, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Operation First Response helped restore his hope.“Now, he looks forward to each new day,” Lane said.Emcee of the ceremony, Army Staff Sgt. Patrick Carney, who spent eight years of his military service in Iraq, addressed the two women speakers after they finished. Carney, of Northfield, a married father of two, did two tours of duty in Iraq, and was honorably discharged for medical reasons.Operation First Response senior advisor Nick Constantino, left, with emcee Army Staff Sgt. Patrick Carney after the ceremony.Carney works to help other veterans, as a veteran community outreach specialist for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, along with his K-9 companion dog, Henry.“I thank you both for your beautiful words. I am humbled to be in your presence today,” Carney told Price and Lane.Nick Constantino, a senior advisor of Operation First Response, commended the speakers for their courage and strength.“I think they both did a wonderful job telling their stories to the crowd,” he noted. “I think Susan Price, a Gold Star mother, opened the eyes to what happens to those families who lose loved ones in the military. We are proud to support those families.”Participants begin their three-mile walk.Operation First Response founder Peggy Baker said, “We are the boots on the ground on the home front. It is up to us to never forget our fallen and our Gold Star families.”Veterans have also received help from Ocean City businesses such as Playland’s Castaway Cove, which to date has raised $17,000 for Operation First Response.As the hundreds of family members, service men and women and their supporters lined up to start the walk, three veterans, two who served in World War II and one from Vietnam led the Walk for the Wounded to the applause of the onlookers.last_img read more
