Ireland beat the Barbarians – All the tries

first_imgWednesday May 28, 2008 Ireland beat the Barbarians – All the tries Ireland and the Barbarians met last night at Kingsholm for a friendly match that served mainly as a warm up for Ireland ahead of their tour down to Australasia next month.It wasn’t the greatest performance seen by Ireland or the traditional Barbarians, but served up a few nice tries, most notably by Tommy Bowe and Shane Horgan.The Baa Baa’s looked predictably out of sorts and disjointed, and as the commentator quipped, perhaps had a bit too much of a Belgian beer hangover after their match there on the weekend.Ireland scored 24 points in the first 23 minutes, and that was about the most exciting part of the game bar one or two moments of brilliance from a young backline that at times showed glimpses of real quality.Ireland came out easily on top in the end, despite some spirited play by the Barbarians. The final score in this one, 39-14to the Irish. :: Related Posts :: The Barbarians down South Africa in 2007 Great Barbarians try vs the Boks – 2000 Barbarians 1973 – Gareth Edwards try 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.

California rally: ‘Union busting is disgusting!’

first_imgSan Francisco, March 12San FranciscoMarch 12 — Labor union and community members rallied today in front of the offices of Morgan Lewis, a law firm with offices in 31 cities around the world with a sordid history of union busting. Morgan Lewis was recently hired by Amazon to sabotage efforts by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) to organize Amazon workers in Bessemer, Ala.Morgan Lewis has blocked union efforts by Amazon technicians since 2014 and has defended the company against lawsuits over unsafe working conditions during the COVID pandemic. For six decades, Morgan Lewis has strategized to defeat union organizing efforts. Best known for its end run against the 1981 strike of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO) during President Ronald Reagan’s administration, most recently the firm has been hired to derail the Fight for $15 and a union effort.A militant picket line organized by Support Alabama Amazon Workers-Bay Area chanted at the base of Market Street, “Union busting is disgusting!” Protesters took out their phones and called Morgan Lewis directly to demand the company end its attack on the RWDSU and Alabama Amazon workers. Speakers at the picket line included representatives of the Oakland Education Association, the San Francisco Labor Council, Western Movement Assembly, East Bay Democratic Socialists of America and United Front Committee for a Mass Labor Party. A contingent of electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electricians joined the picket line.As part of a national Day of Solidarity with the 85% Black workforce at the Alabama warehouse, the Support Alabama Amazon Workers-Bay Area committee is planning a car and bike caravan for 1 p.m., Saturday, March 20, through Oakland. Other San Francisco Bay Area events that day include a 9:30 a.m. rally at the Brisbane Amazon facility and a 10 a.m. press conference at 7th and Berry Streets. in San Francisco — a site bought by Amazon for a future “logistics facility.” All events are listed at supportamazonworkers.org/march20/.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

WATCH: Two Peace Corps members talk their experience, application tips

first_imgWorld Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook ReddIt I am a senior journalism major from the great city of Chicago. Watching E! News while eating a Chipotle burrito is my favorite pastime. Go Cowboys! Twitter Linkedin printTwo Peace Corps employees visited TCU’s campus Wednesday to encourage students to consider applying for the program.Erin Gibbs, chief of operations for the Peace Corps’ Office of Volunteer Recruitment and Selection, and Matt Sheehey, director of press relations, spoke about their travels with the Peace Corps. Gibbs traveled to Macedonia and Sheehey traveled to Panama.The Peace Corps is a service opportunity to travel abroad and help positively impact communities around the world.“This is really an amazing opportunity to serve our country and also serve in developing communities around the world and have a leadership and development experience that you cannot have anywhere else,” Sheehey said.When applying for the program, volunteers can serve for six different sectors: agriculture, environment, community economic development, health, education and youth in development.“In 2014, we revamped our application process,” Gibbs said. “We have quarterly application deadlines throughout the year and also quarterly deadlines where you know within a few months of applying whether you’re going to get in or not.”Before applying, Gibbs recommends to talk to a Peace Corps recruiter in the area to answer any questions about the process.While traveling as a Peace Corps volunteer, Gibbs said leaving the fast-paced lifestyle in the U.S. was the most noticeable change when arriving in Macedonia but not everything was different.“I think the biggest thing I learned right away is that people are the same no matter where you go,” Gibbs said. “Whether you’re in Arkansas, where I grew up, or in Macedonia, people care about family.Gibbs and Sheehey recognize how the Peace Corps impacted their lives and broadened their horizons.“I’d probably still be in Arkansas,” Gibbs said. “I traveled a bit, but you know, stayed in the one community and the state where I was born and raised. Now, you know, the world is your oyster as they say and I’ve lived in three different countries and traveled to more than 40 countries doing work that I love.”Sheehey said he would still be living in his community in upstate New York without having the opportunities he experienced through the Peace Corps.“Thanks to my contact with a Peace Corps volunteer who helped open my eyes to these new possibilities and also the great advantage of having this cultural experience, I was able to do more with my life then I would have anticipated,” Sheehey said. “The Peace Corps opens up a whole new set of doors for return volunteers professionally.”People who served in the Peace Corps are given non-competitive eligibility, where a volunteer can go through the hiring process at a faster pace. The executive branch of the government can hire them within 12 months of serving in the Peace Corps.For more information about the Peace Corps, visit peacecorps.gov.

Opinion: Open Letter to the “Tournament of Racism”

first_imgOpinion & Columnists Opinion: Open Letter to the “Tournament of Racism” Opinion Piece by MARTIN A. GORDON, Chair and Facilitator, Pasadena Community Coalition Published on Wednesday, December 31, 2014 | 12:35 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS The Pasadena Community Coalition’s letter to the Executive Board of the Tournament of Roses, received in their offices on November 24, 2014, requesting that they address the lack of hiring of any African-American males on their staff has yet to be formally acknowledged or responded to by the Board. Copies of the letter were sent to the American Honda Co., ESPN, the NCAA, the Pac 12, and the Big 10, but these other groups also have not replied to us about the concerns listed in our correspondence.Three years ago, the lack of African-American males on the staff of the Tournament of Roses, better known as the “Tournament of Racism,” and the traditional non-hiring of them, was brought to the attention of the organization through a meeting arranged by Joe Brown of the NAACP. Attending that discussion were leading members of the Tournament, including former President Sally Bixby, and Tournament members Gerald Freeny and Otis Triplett, and Executive Director Bill Flynn. The Tournament promised to address this issue head on, yet here we are at the end of 2014 and they have not only reneged on their promise but have also refused to even respond to recent questions about the situation. For the Tournament of Roses to not honor its commitment going back 3 years is truly unacceptable and a sign of egregious indifference.Moreover, this same issue of the “Tournament of Racism” was raised over 20 years ago, presented to the organization’s executive director at the time, Jack French. He stated that African-Americans were not qualified to be on the Executive Committee. This provoked an outcry not only in Pasadena, but nationally and beyond, to the point that Nelson Mandela, Coretta Scott King and Jesse Jackson vowed to hold a counter-parade to the Rose Parade. At that moment, the Tournament of Roses recognized their Executive Committee should be more diverse, and eventually moved to have women, Asians and Latinos on the Committee.In a recent article in one of the local Pasadena newspapers mentioning this ongoing issue, and according to the query of the reporter, the response of the Tournament of Roses to its lack of, in particular, African-American male employees will be directed to Martin A. Gordon of the Pasadena Community Coalition. But more than 30 days have passed and the silence of the Tournament continues and is deafening. Ignoring this issue is hardly a credible response!We describe the current outcome in that way – and with great emphasis – because over 70 percent of the players of football teams under the auspices of the NCAA are African-American males. Furthermore the economic benefit they bring, which involves hundreds of millions of dollars to each college campus and sports program, including that of the Pac 12 (UCLA and USC), and the Big 10, is tremendous. How can the Tournament of Roses, which also receives great value from these teams and their players, not be greatly concerned about the lack of any African American male on their staff? After all, so much of the worth and fame of the Tournament of Roses’ annual parade is dependent on the Rose Bowl game, which much of the public immediately identifies with the parade, and which, in turn, involves men of African descent.It’s long overdue that the “Tournament of Racism” and their “inspiring story” should be one about the Executive Committee announcing that Executive Director Bill Flynn is resigning from the Tournament for his lack of leadership and promotion of diversity. That way the “Tournament of Racism” can again be the Tournament of Roses.Martin A.

UL Hospitals Group physiotherapists mark World Physiotherapy Day

first_imgLimerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live PHYSIOTHERAPISTS at UL Hospitals Group will mark World Physiotherapy Day this Tuesday September 8th, with lunchtime exercise classes and information sessions highlighting how their work that came to the fore during the COVID-19 pandemic can enhance the health and wellbeing of all health service staff.Media coverage of the pandemic has raised public understanding of physiotherapy beyond traditional misconceptions of a profession for treatment of sports and musculoskeletal injury, especially television footage that offered unprecedented insight into the role of physiotherapists in critical care settings.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, Health and Social Care Professionals (HSCP) emphasise that this is only the beginning of the patient’s interaction with physiotherapy. Rehabilitation from COVID-19 involves ongoing input from physiotherapy, and physiotherapists in UL Hospitals Group are uniquely placed to demonstrate how this ongoing physiotherapy can benefit health service staff as well as patients.Local activities to mark World Physiotherapy Day—an annual initiative of the World Physiotherapy Organisation promoted nationally by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP)—are centred in the Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) at UL Sports Arena, opened in June for non-COVID or post-COVID patients who need ongoing care and who would benefit from further rehabilitation before discharge.Conor O’Mahony, a Staff Grade Physiotherapist who is currently based at the ICF, described the ICF as a “revolutionary” facility with a distinct focus on patient rehabilitation where physiotherapy truly comes into its own.“The rehabilitation journey for patients at the ICF is only made possible by collaboration between physiotherapists and the extensive multi-disciplinary team, which includes doctors, dietitians, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, nursing staff, health care assistants and medical social workers,” he said.Conor explained: “Rehabilitation is not solely focused on ensuring that patients ‘can manage’, but on optimising their quality of life and well-being. The ICF started as a blank canvas, and is now an ideal rehabilitation setting where various Allied Health professions merge effectively as one team. This maximises the quality of the patient-centred, holistic care, and progresses each individual team members’ growth and development.”There are currently three physiotherapists and two therapy assistants on site. Physiotherapy students from the University of Limerick have benefited from completing unique educational work placements in the facility, as have students from the other disciplines.Physiotherapy is focused on optimising patients’ capabilities and function in order to achieve their goals and prepare them for discharge. According to Conor O’Mahony, “This is often the final step in a long intensive recovery, both for post-COVID and general patients alike.“The physiotherapy caseload caters for patients across a broad spectrum, ranging from Orthopaedic, Neurology, and mobility to cardiac and respiratory care. The physiotherapy service benefits from access to a specialised rehabilitation gymnasium and has capacity for longer and more intensive treatment sessions.“There is a distinct focus on the holistic management of the patient with sociable but physically distanced exercise classes being only one fixture in the patient’s day of activities organised by the multi-disciplinary team.As with any healthcare project, patient feedback is the most important measure of success for the ICF, and this has been overwhelmingly positive.Rose Mannion from Co Tipperary was transferred to the ICF for six weeks to further her rehabilitation following an intensive care admission with COVID-19. “The ICF is a wonderful success story,” Rose said. “The physiotherapists took me through a rigorous workout over my six-week admission. This greatly improved my physical abilities, and set me up nicely for my discharge home.”Buoyed by the unanimous approval of patients for their work, the physiotherapists have broadened their focus to take in their colleagues at the ICF, almost three-quarters (72%) of whom admit that their personal exercise regimes have suffered during the pandemic.A local survey of staff in the facility finds that the majority (67%) are not achieving the recommended guideline of at least 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week, and 86% skipping the prescribed three strengthening sessions per week.Using World Physiotherapy Day as their launch platform, the physiotherapists at the ICF have organised socially distanced exercise challenges for staff, as well as educational sessions that are aimed at raising awareness of physiotherapy and its benefits. To ensure good intentions are put into practice beyond World Physiotherapy Day, the Allied Health team has already subscribed to the HSE’s annual ‘Step Challenge’ competition.“While the COVID-19 pandemic has been detrimental to events and occasions all over the globe, the ICF is a definite success story,” Conor O’Mahony said. “On World Physiotherapy Day, it seems fitting to ensure all staff and patients can benefit from the positive patient experiences of physiotherapy in the ICF.”Group Lead for Allied Health in UL Hospitals Group, Fiona Steed, said she was delighted that World Physiotherapy Day was being used to highlight the role of physiotherapists in the Intermediate Care Facility and across UL Hospitals Group.“We are blessed with many talented physiotherapists working across the Group and in many different settings, treating everything from chronic disease management, in-patient stay, acute injuries and recovery post-operation and post-stroke, to name but a few.“Physiotherapists form part of the much wider Allied Health team in UL Hospitals, which consists of seven of the Health and Social Care Professional (HSCP) groupings, also including Dietetics, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy, Medical Social Work, Podiatry and Neurophysiology Technicians,” Fiona added.

Pay deal levels creep up with inflation

first_img Comments are closed. Inflation is spurring higher pay deals this summer with three-quarters of them being struck at 3 per cent or above and 4 per cent set to become the norm by the end of the year.Incomes Data Services analysed 566 pay settlements negotiated this year and found a marked rise in more recent deals from those struck in the first quarter.Because pay planning often takes place in September – when last year inflation was as low as 1.1 per cent – it had the effect of subduing this year’s early settlements.With inflation hitting 3.3 per cent in June, settlements are likely to reflect this level, or rise slightly over the next few months. IDS predicts inflation-linked increases in long-term deals where rises of 3.8 to 4 per cent will be triggered by formulas such as “inflation plus 0.5 per cent”.Notable settlements included in the report are those at the BBC (3 per cent), Tesco (3.1 per cent) and Marks & Spencer (2.5 per cent plus profit share of 2.5 per cent). Railtrack, meanwhile, struck one of the bigger deals in April where basic pay was set to rise by 9 per cent – although 4 per cent was down to consolidation of roster premiums. www.incomesdata.co.uk Related posts:No related photos.
