The greatest centres of all time: Yannick Jauzion

first_imgPower, athleticism and elegant skill, made French centre Yannick Jauzion, one of the greats Major teams: Colomiers, Toulouse


Country: France

Test span: 2003-11
France caps: 73 (65 starts)

Test points: 103 (20T, 1DG)The professional era has seen midfields crowded with mighty collisions between hulking figures on a quest to cross the all-important gain-line. Standing just shy of 6ft 4in and weighing around 17st, Yannick Jauzion didn’t want for size.He traded Colomiers for neighbours Toulouse in 2002, a year after making his debut for France in a wonderful 32-23 win over South Africa at Ellis Park.He would become a totem wearing black and red under Guy Noves, inspiring three Top 14 titles in 2008, 2011 and 2012 as well as a trio of Heineken Cup crowns in 2003, 2005 and 2010. A master of the offload who also hit incisive running lines, Jauzion was the unfussy facilitator around which a team could mould their attacking approach. TAGS: The Greatest Players LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Indeed, though a 73-Test France career yielded 20 tries, his smooth distribution and ability to free his arms in the contact area to find onrushing team-mates were more significant attributes. Grand Slams in 2002, 2004 and 2010 came either side of another Six Nations triumph in 2007, the same year Jauzion scored to oust the All Blacks in the World Cup quarter-final and earned a World Player of the Year nomination.Pioneering English backs coach Brian Ashton labelled Toulouse’s fluent best as “absolutely phenomenal” and “on a totally different level to what anyone else plays, even the All Blacks”. Whether at 12 or 13, Jauzion was the lynchpin to this irresistible style. Teams needed to develop innovative plans – as Wasps did by positioning back-rower Joe Worsley in the back-line from lineouts – to quell his influence.In 2006, the then France coach Bernard Laporte likened Jauzion’s importance to France to Ireland’s Brian O’Driscoll and England’s Jonny Wilkinson, while Sky analyst Stuart Barnes is another who didn’t need any convincing of the centre’s supreme talents. “The Jauzion offload looks easy,” he said, “but only those verging on greatness make sport seem so simple.” Yannick Jauzion scores against New Zealand in the 2007 World Cup last_img read more

This city is also influenced by a lot of tropical storms every year. Besides, the local people, as well as their lifestyle, is affected by their main religion, known as Buddhism. Thus, they lead an open and friendly life.Save this picture!© Quang DamThis house, of which the architect himself got the inspiration from humble zen space and from some small country houses in the central coastal countryside of Vietnam, is built for a single woman. It is requested that this house should be a space that can create a linking space filled with friendliness, closeness, and flexibility.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe problem of climate has been considered in the first place. As the site area is extremely small together with the three- hidden sides of the house, the plan is divided into two light wells which allow breeze and light to get to all the corners of the house.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanGreen trees cannot be omitted as they play an important role in highlighting the light well holes, which helps create a relaxing and comfortable feeling in such a small-spaced house. All the green trees in the house can help link the two floors so all the members of the family are able to see and talk to each other through this open and close space.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe architect has designed the first floor with a large sharing space where a living room, a cooking counter, a dining table are found, which restrict the lobby and extra space with the maximum amount.Save this picture!First Floor PlanIn a word, both the architect and the owner of the house wish to build an effective, energy-saving and friendly house, which will take advantage of the natural features of the region.

New Gift Aid declarations to be trialled this summer

This will be legislated in the Finance Bill 2015, with subsequent secondary legislation to fill in the full details, including a definition of ‘intermediary’.Secondary legislation will also allow a single declaration to cover multiple charities through a single intermediary and set out the regulatory framework for the intermediaries, which the Treasury says will be based on the regulatory regime for payroll giving agencies.No universal databaseThe government said it would not establish a universal gift aid declaration database – which would have meant that donors only need to opt-in to the Gift Aid scheme once, rather than every time they make a donation to a new charity.However, information provided by respondents would be used in “supporting longer-term thinking about the future of Gift Aid administration”.The Treasury’s consultation – aimed at addressing barriers in access to Gift Aid when making donations through digital channels, including text and online – ran between July and September 2013 and received 100 responses.

Majority of employees receive no time off for volunteering, research shows

first_img Tagged with: Research / statistics Volunteering Overall, 16% of all workers receive only one day off to volunteer, and 12% receive more than one day.Professional Services and Arts & Culture are the sectors most likely to allow employees several days off to contribute to charities. Almost a quarter (24%) in these industries get more than one day off a year for volunteering.Those who work in Healthcare (8%), Retail, Catering and Leisure (7%), and Sales, Media and Marketing (4%) are the least likely to be given more than one day off to volunteer.When comparing across the country, London allows for the most volunteering days, with 41% of its workers receiving either one or more CSR days annually. This is followed by the North East, with 35% receiving the same amount.  Those in Scotland are least likely to be given any days off to volunteer, with 75% of its workers stating that they do not receive any CSR days from their work. About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Almost two thirds of employees do not receive any days off for volunteering, research has shown.According to a study by employee experience platform Perkbox, 63% of employees in the UK do not receive any days off from their work to volunteer.The figure rises higher in certain industries: 75% of those working in Healthcare, Architecture, Engineering and Building industries do not receive any volunteering days from their employers. 42% of employed people state that they personally would most like to give back to healthcare charities through a variety of methods, including raising sponsorship money from marathons, 33% would like to give back to their local community and 31% would choose environmental causes.Perkbox also partnered with TalentPool to find what CSR practices job hunters would like to see their next employer involved in. ‘Addressing climate change’ (33%) and ‘helping the local community’ (30%) are most important, followed by ‘fundraising for charitable causes around the world’ (24%) and ‘driving healthcare initiatives’ (13%).Chieu Cao, Co-founder at Perkbox said:“It’s clear that workplaces need to be doing more to allow employees to take time and contribute to charities. With already limited personal time, without being given volunteering days, those in full-time positions must fit volunteering into their evenings and weekends, causing them to juggle commitments. This often means that volunteering can fall to the back burner – affecting both social consciousness and society itself.“By allowing employees to give back to the wider community and the charitable causes that matter to them most, it can fulfil an important sense of purpose and allow people to use their skills in a different way from their day-to-day work, in turn, contributing to overall employee happiness. Companies must look past their own goals to identify the needs of society as a whole, as those with employees who want to help have a real chance to make a change.”  713 total views,  5 views today Advertisement  714 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 Majority of employees receive no time off for volunteering, research shows AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 Melanie May | 4 September 2019 | Newslast_img read more

Indiana Weather Forecast 2/4/2015

first_imgHome News Feed Indiana Weather Forecast 2/4/2015 Precipitation is back over the Hoosier state today. We have a minor clipper system that comes through in two parts today. The first is ongoing this morning and is mostly limited to extreme northern Indiana and into southern Lower Michigan. This sprang out of snow that developed yesterday over IA, MN, WI and northern IL. Precipitation totals will be limited to a few hundredths to a .12” liquid equivalent, and will be good for a coating to an inch or two over the northern tier counties. We doubt this snow makes it much farther south than US 30, and if it does, US 24 should hold it. Most of the state will see clouds all day, and the better coverage precipitation comes in late afternoon and overnight tonight. That part will be with a cool front, sweeping through the region quite quickly. We like total liquid potential at .08-.18”, or a coating to 2 inches. The best snows break out from Lafayette to Fort Wayne and north, although we will see flakes all the way to Bloomington. The freezing line sets up late afternoon in extreme southern Indiana, say a line from Rising Sun to Seymour to just north of Evansville. Along and south of that line we look for just light rain/sprinkles, or perhaps just nothing. A few areas in that Peru-Wabash area might pick up slightly better than 2 inches of snow…but not by much. This will really be a quick moving, cold air bringing event that just happens to produce a bit of snow too.Immediately following the system we will see colder air in for tomorrow, but temps will start to modify on the backside of the Canadian high for Friday and Saturday as south winds kick in. We think that temps will work back to normal state wide. The American model is still the warmest solution out there and it calls for parts of southern Indiana to work toward the lower 40s for Saturday…but other models are colder. Those other models did modify their colder solutions a bit over the past 24 hours…so that is what is leading us to look for nearly normal temps for Friday and Saturday over the central and south.  Up north, though, we think the models are not compensating quite enough for the significant snow on the ground, and its “refrigerating” effect on the atmosphere, so we like taking 2-4 degrees off the model projected highs, and keeping temps below normal through the weekend.The next system to watch comes in on Sunday. Temps are a little warmer now on the model runs, suggesting the freezing line all the way up to the peru-wabash-bluffton area as the precipitation starts. This is concerning to me, in that the low will pass right near that track US 24 perhaps down to SR 26. South wind flow around the low may produce an “overrunning” scenario, where moisture laden warm air over-runs the colder air at the surface. Many times we see this in a warm front set up. In this case, with the freezing line in that area as well, we are concerned about precipitation developing as freezing rain, rather than snow. This will need to be closely monitored in the days ahead. IF the low moves farther south, and the freezing line with it, then concern for freezing rain will move south. If the low keeps the same track, and the freezing line goes farther south, we will be more apt to get just snow. Right now we will project rain in the south, snow far north, and a bit of freezing rain to snow potential in the above mentioned areas. Facebook Twitter SHARE Indiana Weather Forecast 2/4/2015 Next week we continue the pattern, with a clipper sweeping through at midweek. It does not look as impressive now, with models trying to make it fall apart off to our west, but we will reserve judgment for now. WE don’t like to change a forecast based on just one model run. We also see another system then for Valentines Day weekend, although it does not look to be exceptionally well organized.The extended period shows a deepening trough over the country, expanding west to include more of the plains. Right now, models have backed off the stronger storm around the 17th, but we feel that if a deeper, colder trough is the right solution, then we will likely see a stronger low come over the top of the ridge to the west and move in sometime in or near that time period. So, we will keep that time period stormy/snowy in our thoughts right now.BEYOND INDIANA:CORN WeatherWe are bumping the next front in Argentina up about a day, getting action in for this Sunday, the 8th. This front will promote half to 1 inch totals easily across 80% of Argentina corn areas. Another front sneaks in around the 13th, but will start farther north. This still should bring half to 1 inch rains or better to 60% of Argentina corn areas. Temps look to be nearly normal to slightly above.  Southern Brazil corn areas see a nice front slowly working through late this week into the weekend. However, if there is an area to be missed, it will be Rio Grande do Sul. The action looks to start just north of there and work through Santa Catarina, Parana and Sao Paulo, in addition to eastern Matto Grosso do Sul. RGDS may be stuck just with some scattered showers. However, a second front for later next week looks to bring moisture back to the extreme south…so 10 day totals look to be nice…between 1 and 3 inches at least, coverage nearly 90%.  The US Corn Belt stays active in the east, drier and warmer in the west. Chance of freezing rain over the weekend in Indiana and OH. Rains next week favor the SW Corn Belt with models showing systems falling apart before they make it too far across the Mississippi river. Temps will stay mostly below normal in the east. A deepening and more impressive upper level trough digs in around mid month, and should drop temps sharply over the entire Corn Belt. The precipitation pattern remains unchanged in the east…a clipper or front every few days. By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 4, 2015 center_img WHEAT Weather Snow in northern HRW areas today with dramatically colder temps. We can see 2-5 inches of snow in north central KS, northeast KS and southeast NE. The rest of the region down to I-70 sees minor precip – less than an inch of snow in NW KS, NE CO and SW NE. the southern half of HRW country gets a few spits and sprinkles or more than likely nothing. However, we warm significantly behind this system starting tomorrow, and will be in the 70s over a large part of wheat country by Friday. Dry for the finish of the week, weekend and most of next week. Much colder air tries to dive in with a strengthening trough around mid month. But, until then we see temps above normal, and precipitation below normal. No change in SRW areas, Snowpack holds over northern areas and we actually will be able to add to it. Rains are limited to areas near and south of the OH River. Temps mostly below normal. FSU areas still look to get colder next week. Precipitation, though, looks to be mostly a north VS south event…with the southern region and western Kazakhstan picking up half to 1.5” liquid equivalents over the next 10 days but .3” or less farther north. Most of that precipitation will be snow. We have to categorize this pattern as normal to below normal on temps, and below normal on precipitation too, for the most part.  SHARE SOYBEAN Weather10 day rain totals via the European global model are impressive across Brazil soybean areas. If realized, this puts the heaviest rains on the driest areas to this point. It may not be soon enough for some beans in eastern parts of the soy belt…but anybody thinking about second crop corn would love these rains. We see nice, scattered afternoon thunderstorm potential almost every day over the region, but to get a good look at actual frontal moisture, you need to look at the 7 am maps…for example, we see a great front sweeping through most of brazil bean areas this Friday, spinning out of a strong low just off the coast of extreme southern brazil (Rio Grande do Sul). This kind of frontal action (this one hangs around 3 days, and there is another one around the 12th) works together with the scattered heat based action to produce excellent rain potential over the next two weeks. Argentina soybean areas benefit from two fronts the next 12 days outlined mostly in the corn section. These will feature good coverage over 80% of bean areas.

Violence, terror and lack of information – initial evaluation of battle for Abidjan’s impact on media

first_img News April 6, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Violence, terror and lack of information – initial evaluation of battle for Abidjan’s impact on media Reporters Without Borders is offering an initial assessment of the impact on the media of the past six days of fighting for the control of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire’s commercial capital.An all-out battle for news and information has been fought in parallel to the military clashes. After being used for propaganda purposes, the prized national radio and TV stations were finally the target of airstrikes. As normal reporting became too dangerous, rumours and hard-to-verify reports began to circulate. Journalists were the targets of threats and became more scared by the day. RTI – a key military objectiveThe state-owned Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI) became a strategic objective for the Republican Forces (FRCI), the military force that supports Alassane Ouattara, since the start of its offensive on 31 March, when it was still under Laurent Gbagbo’s control. The fighting between the FRCI and the pro-Gbagbo Defence and Security Forces (FDS) damaged RTI’s premises and equipment, with the result that it could no longer broadcast from its headquarters in the Abidjan neighbourhood of Cocody. Its signal was cut on 31 March and continued to be cut for much of next day.RTI resumed broadcasting on the evening of 1 April from a mobile truck, transmitting propaganda messages urging the pro-Gbagbo “Young Patriots” to take to the streets to defend Gbagbo and the “republic’s institutions,” and accusing France of planning a “genocide” in Côte d’Ivoire.Like the presidential palace in the Abidjan district of Plateau and Gbagbo’s residence in Cocody, the national radio and television were on the list of 19 locations that were the target of airstrikes by the French helicopters of the French and UN peacekeeping forces on the evening of 4 April. Addressing the National Assembly in Paris yesterday, French defence minister Gérard Longuet said one of the objectives of the airstrikes was to destroy RTI’s antennae.Reporters Without Borders calls on the French government to provide an immediate explanation for the airstrikes on RTI. Under international law, not even a news media being used as a propaganda outlet by an enemy force constitutes a legitimate military target. It is protected just as any civilian building is.Reporters Without Borders is fully aware that RTI has been used as an influential and dangerous propaganda tool rather than a public service media. We have on several occasions, including in 2004, accused it of behaving like a “hate media.” The messages that it was putting out in the past four months, and again this past week, were very disturbing. Today, the RTI website was carrying a video showing the effects of violence against civilians in unbearably graphic detail, accompanied by a text message saying: “Alert genocide holocaust in Côte d’Ivoire – More than 1,200 civilians burned to death in Duékoué by pro-Ouattara forces.” The claim was unverifiable.Unable to report at the height of the fightingMost of the journalists in Abidjan were unable to venture outside this week because of the curfew imposed every day by the often blind violence of the fighting taking place on the streets. Many of them worked by telephone while holed up in their homes.The car of a journalist working for the French daily Le Monde came under Kalashnikov fire on the northern freeway on 31 March, the day that the FRCI entered Abidjan. A French TV crew’s vehicle was machine-gunned two days later. Other journalists stayed in their bureaux or found refuge at the French military camp at Port-Bouët. Around 20 foreign journalists were blocked at the Novotel Hotel in the Abidjan district of Plateau on 4 April, when the hotel was overrun by gunmen.The Abidjan newspapers have not been able to publish because of the chaos. The last time a newspaper was published was on 31 March, the first day of the offensive against the city. The daily Fraternité Matin was printed on 1 April, but could not be distributed. Since then, there has been nothing on the newsstands.Reporters have also been getting threats, compounding the safety problems for the media.Journalists targeted by both campsReports of a “hit list” that included journalists were circulating by word of a mouth at the height of the fighting in Abidjan last weekend. Several reporters received anonymous death threats. Many Ivorian journalists working for partisan news media have gone into hiding, fearing they could be the targets of a witch-hunt.“Journalists are very scared,” Reporters Without Borders said.Photo : AFP Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election October 16, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire RSF_en Côte d’IvoireAfrica Help by sharing this information Organisation to go furthercenter_img October 29, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reports News RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections Côte d’IvoireAfrica News Receive email alerts November 27, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
