A look at five of the greatest Super Rugby finals

first_imgThursday Aug 1, 2013 A look at five of the greatest Super Rugby finals The Chiefs will host the Brumbies in this year’s Super Rugby final this Saturday, so as part of the build up, here is a look at some of the more memorable finals from previous years of the tournament, dating back to 1998. Featuring a run down of the pick of the finals, Fox Sports go through some of what in their view are the best, treating us to some great footage and fantastic memories.1998 – Blues vs Crusaders – AucklandThe Blues were the powerhouse side in the early years, winning the first two tournaments with players such as Zinzan Brooke, Sean Fitzpatrick and Carlos Spencer. The Crusaders got the better of them in a classic 1998 final though, claiming the first of their seven titles.2004 – Brumbies vs Crusaders – CanberraThis was an incredible game of rugby with some lovely tries, including vintage pieces of play from big Radike Samo and long haired George Smith. Lookout for the brilliant chip ahead by him, and of course keep an eye on him this coming weekend vs the Chiefs.2007 – Sharks vs Bulls – DurbanA match that started and ended with Bryan Habana infuriating the Sharks faithful, this one will be remembered for that last minute winning try from the speedy winger. Jaco Van Der Westhuizen’s shirt, and climbing up to the crossbar in celebration is right up there too.2009 – Bulls vs Chiefs – PretoriaWhile they spent a few years near the bottom of the table in Super Rugby, the Chiefs came into their own in recent years, reaching the final for the first time in 2009. Unfortunately they found themselves up against a rampant Bulls side, who ran riot and put 61 points on the visitors.2011 – Reds vs Crusaders – BrisbaneRemembered as a coming of age for the Reds, in 2011 the Queensland team played some sensational rugby, with Quade Cooper and Will Genia in particular pulling off all the tricks. In the final they faced a massive challenge in the Crusaders, but thanks in large part to a brilliant solo effort from Genia, Brisbane erupted with well earned celebrations they’ll not soon forget.You can view longer clips from all the matches featured by browsing through the Related Posts below.

Based in Budapest, Hungary, the initiative involves both an online community and project management platform to help find appropriate volunteers and manage the work they do for the selected charity.The digital platform launches in March 2015 but is already ahead of schedule in terms of attracting volunteer IT staff. The organisation had hoped to recruit 500 volunteers but already has over 600 signed up.Many of them come from major technology companies such as Prezi and Ustream. Indeed, #charity has been created by Jozsef Czapovich, Director of engineering at Prezi, who is keen to close the technology gap experienced by many charities through lack of skills and funding.The #charity platform has already secured $250,000 seed investment form Vienna-based Fiedler Capital. It will launch with a range of tools including visual display tool Prezi, messaging tool Slack, code repository Github, project management tool Trello, and cloud-based storage facility Dropbox.It has begun working on three initial projects with charities around the world:• building a video streaming app for the NGO Action Against Hunger to showcase and monitor the impact of its projects in the field• building a series of infographic-rich Prezi content (like this one for Syria Deeply) for nonprofit partners• building impact data visualisation tools for the Chicago-based nonprofit MoneythinkEach project is expected to be completed within three months.Hackathons for goodBetween now and the launch #charity is planning a series of “hackathons for good” to test the software platform and engage more of the tech volunteers.Yet another IT pro bono service?There are plenty of pro bono technology services available to charities.

Ask Direct’s Damian O’Broin will be joined on the Irish task group by panel members Colin Skeehan, Simon Scriver, and Gaby Murphy, who is co-ordinating the project.Scottish fundraising consultant Mafe Marwick has joined the International Advisory Panel to co-ordinate the Critical Fundraising (Scotland) Report. She will be joined by Scottish AP members Margaret Clift-McNulty and Gary Kernahan and is currently putting together the task group for the Scottish report, with a view to publishing in October.The team for the Critical Fundraising (USA) Report is currently being assembled from the American members of the International Advisory Panel, and will be led by Barbara O’Reilly of Windmill Hill Consulting.All Critical Fundraising Reports will follow the same format, with the task groups compiling SWOT and PESTLE analyses for fundraising in their countries, and selecting some of those factors for more detailed analysis. Critical Fundraising Reports are ‘live’ documents that will be regularly updated.Ian MacQuillin, Rogare director, said:“Because these reports are being devised and collated by fundraisers, they represent what practitioners see as the biggest issues and challenges facing their country. We may see lots of commonalities emerge across countries, but we might equally see some very country-specific challenges too.”The CFR (National) Reports will be part of a series of reports to be compiled by members of Rogare’s Advisory Panel over the coming years, which will also include CFR (Method) Reports, looking challenges for types fundraising, such as telephone and major gifts; and CFR (Issues) Reports, which will explore issues such as regulation and ethics.

New ISDA Director to Focus on Rural Broadband Access

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News New ISDA Director to Focus on Rural Broadband Access New ISDA Director to Focus on Rural Broadband Access Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Bruce Kettler at FFBT Ag SummitThe new Director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, Bruce Kettler, has been on the job for a little over two weeks now. He says there have been a lot of people that he’s needed to meet since he started on January 8. “Making sure that I understand all of the missionaries of the department from Indiana Grown to Soil and Water to Economic Development and of course the legislative pieces as well. So spending a lot of time with staff, getting to know and understanding the Lieutenant Governor’s office.”One of the issues Kettler considers to be important is providing rural broadband access. “So as a department we want do whatever we can to help our legislators here in Indiana understand the value of rural broadband. Governor Holcomb, Lieutenant Governor Crouch, and the administration certainly know and understand that this is a large undertaking for our industry.”Kettler believes that not all legislators understand that farmers don’t just want access to Netflix or other entertainment. He says as the “Internet of Things” evolves it will be even more crucial to be able to provide this service to farmers. “Think about the information that our farm machinery has now, that connectivity, and what we can do to be able to download data and information. Whether it’s from a tractor, a combine, or whatever it might be. That will only become bigger because we’re going to get into more things like sensors that we can put out in the fields to know and understand soil moisture and what’s going on with growing crops.”Kettler told over 260 farmers in attendance at the First Farmers Bank and Trust Agricultural Summit at Purdue’s Ross-Ade Stadium to make sure you’re talking with your legislators and that they understand the business reasons for needing connectivity.

Journalists and media outlets caught in crossfire in Nepal

The Nawalparasi police are investigating the attack, whose perpetrators have yet to be identified.According to Radio Parasi manager Meghraj Gautam, the station has been repeatedly threatened by people accusing it of pro-government bias in its coverage of the Madhesi protests. The past few months have seen many clashes between residents and the authorities in these traditionally poor southern lowland plains bordering India, which are known as the Terai.“We condemn this attack on Radio Parasi and call on the authorities to conduct an independent and thorough investigation with the aim of quickly identifying those responsible and bringing them to justice,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“It is unacceptable that media outlets and their journalists, who just do their job of providing news and information, should be caught in the crossfire between the government and ethnic militants.”Journalists have repeatedly been the victims of violence by both protesters and police during the past four months of demonstrations by members of the Madhesi and Tharu minorities in the southern plains in protest against Nepal’s new constitution, which in their view discriminates against them.Bulbule FM reporter I Singh Rokaya sustained a gunshot injury to the leg when police fired on demonstrators in Surkhet on 10 August. Bikram Rauniyar, a photojournalist who also reports for Mountain Television, was beaten by police on 7 September.Om Prakash Shah of the weekly Bilochan, Shatish Datt of the weekly Mithila, Ashutosh Prasad Singh of Radio C FM and Parish Karna of Chandra FM were attacked by police on 22 November while photographing the body of a Terai demonstrator killed by the police.Demonstrators attacked Jitendra Narayan Yadav, a reporter for the national daily Gorkhapatra, and Makalu Television reporter Navin Karn on 9 September. A Molotov cocktail was thrown at photojournalist Ram Sarraf’s home a few days later. Members of the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) attacked News 24 TV reporter Irfan Ali in Birgunj, near the Indian border, on 20 November.Activists damaged the cars of several media outlets, including the Annapurna Post newspaper on 23 August, and the daily Nagarik on 2 September. Tharu activists also burned copies of the Annapurna Post in the southeastern city of Biratnagar and copies of the Sanskar Khabar newspaper in Bara. The premises of Phoolbari FM, a local radio station in the western town of Tikapur, were set on fire on 25 August.Nepal is ranked 105th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Where are all the business partners?

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. When you reflect on how your HR director spends the biggest proportion oftheir work time, do you come to the conclusion that they are trying to addressthe biggest strategic questions facing the organisation? If the answer is yes, you can take comfort in the fact that efforts arebeing made to move HR into the 21st century. If the answer is no, you should bequerying the value your department brings to the business and worrying aboutits future. HR’s destiny is all about becoming an effective business partner and player.It is about being proactive in a strategic advisory role – getting involved inthe business plan and understanding the strategy, market, products andcommercial challenges the company faces. A skilful HR business partner will head up the organisational design andbring it in line with the strategy. They will get the CEO on side, with theright structures and cultures that need developing and underpin it all withappropriate policies and practices. They know what makes competitors andcustomers tick and they are adept at ensuring HR leads, influences and makes asignificant difference in all these areas. Future HR relationships will not be founded on just reacting to day-to-dayoperational needs, but will concentrate on broader connections andcollaboration with business leaders, finance directors, marketeers and externalstakeholders. This generation of HR directors have had to be self-sufficient and havelearnt on the job about delivering a holistic contribution to the business.Some have acquired skills through tough experiences and are great role models,more by luck than planning. Yet they are in the minority, and it is widely accepted that HR businesspartners are few and far between. Training initiatives like that launched by the Institute for EmploymentStudies (IES) this week (page 1) go a long way to preparing HR managers anddirectors for this arena. But more schemes are needed with wider access, andthere should be a higher profile for HR professionals who epitomise businesspartner status. E-HR is forcing the profession to change its spots at a frightening pace andthere are obvious risks and choices to make going forward. HR can either becomea sub-set of IT, be wiped out altogether in some organisations, or take thebusiness partner route and strengthen its place in the business. Geoff Armstrong, director-general of the CIPD, once called for HR to bebolder and more assertive in engaging with the business strategy. The IESscheme looks like a great move in helping HR achieve this.

The Oxford Revue Review

first_imgA seemingly endless flow of people poured into the Wheatsheaf on Tuesday night, and I eventually found myself wedged in a sweaty spot somewhere between the audience and the stage. Thankfully I had emerged victorious from a small battle with the barman over the purchase of a cider: the pub has evolved a high-tech driving-licence scanning machine to ward off any shifty underage comedy-goers. However, once my drink and I were happily jammed in place, I eagerly waited to see if the Revue would triumph in the seemingly impossible feat of coming up with original material on a fortnightly basis. There is penchant for the bizarre in the scripting that echoes the recent stream of TV sketch shows, which Brits seem to have taken to with enthusiasm. Coupled with this is a distinct whiff of the writers’ Oxford degrees: references to an Anglo-Saxon heritage, the Divine Right of Kings and extended metaphors all make an appearance and create a comfortably esoteric relationship between the performers and the audience. Joe Markham was fantastic as a slightly disturbing, entirely insane victim of alien invasion. Unfortunately, his fellow Revue members also found him particularly hilarious. There were tendencies for them to lose grip on that slick timing and precision that makes for great comedy and descend into giggling. Nevertheless, there were moments of brilliance: President Kieran Hodgson didn’t disappoint; his interpretation of Oliver Cromwell as an angry south Londoner was, in my opinion, a sensitive portrayal given  the understandably irritating situation of Charles I making your-mum jokes. Audience members glanced sideways at one another to see if others shared the sophisticated understanding needed to appreciate a sketch entirely in French, happily forgetting that ‘mon hamster est mort’ was clearly one of the first sentences we all learnt at GCSE. The Revue isn’t a polished performance, but given the task at hand it’s hardly surprising. A sparkling script and peppering of real talent make the Revue a must-see. Just don’t forget your ID. by Harriet Stewartlast_img read more
