Old Haberdashers – Team of the Month (September 2012)

first_imgThis article appeared in the December 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK. Or you may prefer the digital edition on your MAC, PC, or iPad. Sky’s the limit: second-row James Warner rises high for Herts side Old HaberdashersHOW MANY players are lost to the game because they’re loath to commit to training? Sweden back-row Seb Taylor had doubts himself when first arriving in London, but he now captains a side, Old Haberdashers, that sidesteps the issue neatly.“Our USP is not having to train in midweek,” he says. “So many good players can’t afford to give up two nights in the week, or even one night, because of work or family commitments. “Everyone is responsible for their fitness and if they don’t do it they won’t be picked. As for unit training, we practise ahead of matches – we’re out there 90 minutes before kick-off doing lineout or backs moves. It helps that the core of the pack have played together a while.”The no-coach approach isn’t hindering results – far from it. Four London One North wins in September continued a remarkable run that’s seen OH promoted four years in a row. Defeat by Luton (32-22) was their first for 11 months, but even here there was a positive. “I think we were in awe at first – their facilities are unbelievable. We were 19-0 down and being pummelled but we regrouped and led at half-time. Impressive!”Tighthead Andrew Sanderson is the rock of a team in which lock James Warner and wing/full-back Scott Chatterton are key figures. Playing out of Borehamwood, OH are packed with lawyers and don’t lack for conviction. “We have a winning mentality and a confidence,” says Taylor, a solicitor. “Our president, Ian McCarthy, has put structures in place, like recruitment and sponsorship committees, and we have a few new players. We’ve got momentum.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Canterbury KitbagsOH are our September Team of the Month and receive a set of 22 Canterbury kitbags.last_img read more

San Joaquin overwhelmingly elects David Cappel Rice diocesan bishop

first_img Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI San Joaquin overwhelmingly elects David Cappel Rice diocesan bishop Provisional Bishop David Rice celebrates the Eucharist during a March 4 special convention of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin during which he was elected diocesan bishop. Photo: Robert Woods/Diocese of San Joaquin[Episcopal News Service] Delegates to a special convention of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin overwhelmingly voted March 4 to elect Provisional Bishop David Cappel Rice as their diocesan bishop.Rice was the only nominee.  He was elected on the first ballot by a vote of 21 to 1 in the clergy order and 41 to 2 in the lay order. The election required a two-thirds majority in both orders. The somewhat unusual election was both joyous and powerful, he said.“I believe the people of the Diocese of San Joaquin know ever increasingly that they are on a hikoi (intentional movement with a purpose [a word from Maori, the indigenous language of New Zealand]) and they have come to realize and celebrate my willingness, better said, call to walk, run, cycle, move with them,” Rice said in an email to the Episcopal News Service following the election.“As for my own feeling and response, I couldn’t imagine a group of people with whom I’d rather share this hikoi of faith.”Cindy Smith, president of the standing committee, said the move, made possible through adoption of a new canon at the diocese’s October convention, represented not only a commitment to each other, but also a commitment to continued ministry to the people of California’s Central Valley.“We’re going forward and not to just survive but to thrive,” Smith said in a telephone interview March 6. “There is so much to be done now in the Central Valley of California with issues of trafficking, immigration, and a very high percentage of the population incarcerated.”The Rev. Canon Anna Carmichael said the gathering, the first major event since 2007  held at St. James Episcopal Cathedral, also represented, for many, a homecoming. About 200 people attended the event.“It was wonderful, a great homecoming for many folks because it was their first time at the cathedral since the schism happened ten years ago,” said Carmichael, diocesan canon to the ordinary.“We were able to do a blessing of the space as our coming home experience. We had a wonderful Eucharist, and a presentation on stewardship and then we took the vote and did all the necessary procedural things. It was a lovely gathering.”Smith said consent packages soon will be mailed to dioceses throughout the Episcopal Church, A majority of both the Episcopal Church’s diocesan standing committees and bishops with jurisdiction will have to consent to Rice’s election as diocesan, as is required in all bishop elections.Rice was elected the diocese’s third provisional bishop in March 2014. Prior to that he had served as the bishop of the Diocese of Waiapu in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. A North Carolina native, Rice had also been a Methodist pastor for eight years prior to his ordination in the Anglican Church in New Zealand.Retired Diocese of Northern California Bishop Jerry Lamb and retired Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Chet Talton, Rice’s predecessors, worked with Episcopalians to reconstitute the diocese. That work included both litigation over church property and pastoral work over pain the split caused.Within that context, “to elect a bishop that we can call our own and who calls us his, is really powerful and meaningful for this diocese,” Carmichael said. “It was historic.”She added that San Joaquin Episcopalians are hoping for a speedy and smooth consent process.“We are hosting one of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s revivals in November, and it is our hope that, provided the larger church affirms this call and affirms the vote that we took, that Bishop David will be seated as our bishop while the presiding bishop is here.”The revival is planned for Nov. 17-19, she said.–The Rev.

District staff are stationed to guide visitors in treatment areas adjacent to trails.The district is charged with controlling nuisance upland and aquatic vegetation on thousands of acres of district-owned properties. Where invasive, nonnative plants invade Florida’s forests and wetlands, they often choke out native plant species and can overrun a water body and block water control structures. To ensure the safety and welfare of the public, wildlife and environment, a determination is made for each site and plant species as to which approved herbicide will be used.WHAT: Aerial herbicide treatmentWHEN: August 21st–24th and August 28th      WHERE: Lake Apopka North Shore (multiple trailheads)       About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida.

512GW Townhouse / Archi-Tectonics

Archi-Tectonics converted a long and narrow industrial structure in SoHo into a spacious and flexible 8-story family home. The size of the space was doubled by adding a 4-story structure to the original townhouse, and by unifying the two volumes with a 3d envelope: the Climate Skin.Save this picture!© Evan JosephSave this picture!© Evan JosephClimate Skin. The townhouse is inscribed within the Climate Skin, a spacious lattice envelope made of lightweight steel and folding panels clad with Trespa™ slats. When closed, they appear as one smooth surface, but when opened, they fold out like feathers of a birdwing. Like an intricate lacework dress, the sheathing changes character and appearance at different times of the day and view angles and serves as both filter and amplifier between the privacy of the house and the public streetscape. The Climate skin does not stop at the facade,  it wraps up and over the multi-level roofs, creating a private outdoor ‘room’ with green roofs and outdoor dining.Save this picture!Exploded isometricExtensive prototyping assisted in optimizing the movement of the trellis panels. This way, the façade can fold and slide open depending on the residents’ changing needs, as well as simultaneously connect to and enclose from the outdoors.Save this picture!© Evan JosephThis unique facade also poses interesting solutions for sustainability. By making the Climate Skin operable, residents can adjust ventilation, light, shade, and temperature so that the building naturally adapts to environmental conditions. In warmer months, the Climate Skin reduces interior radiation and lowers the need for air-conditioning. In colder months, opening the Climate Skin increases interior radiation and reduces the need for heating.Save this picture!© Evan JosephInteriors. Inside, the project pays respect to the building’s history by restoring the existing brick and up-cycling materials. The black steel in the original building is used throughout the house, such as in the staircase that runs through all eight stories of the house lit from above by a glass roof. At the top the stairs turn 90 degrees and move up to the bulkhead where we find a perfect meditation spot, with its window box penetrating the Climate Skin, overlooking SoHo.Save this picture!© Evan JosephTo enhance the building’s small floorplates spatially, each floor contains a program connected through double-height voids, such as between the kitchen and dining area, and between the study and master bedroom. These allow for spatial interlacing and long views throughout. Save this picture!© Federica CarletDouble-height windows, a skylight, and a dramatic south-facing continuous window slot bring ample light into what could otherwise be a dark and narrow living space. Altogether, these highlight the sensation of extreme verticality and transform mundane everyday tasks into a dynamic spatial experience.Save this picture!© Evan JosephSave this picture!© Evan JosephImpact. This Urban townhouse represents an innovative approach to densification in a city challenged by housing shortages and skyrocketing prices. The conversion not only provides residents with a diversity of elegant living,  working spaces, and generous outdoor areas but also respects the existing characteristics of the city and poses a potential future for urban living. The Climate Skin’s adaptability to environmental conditions represents a rethinking of the residence’s footprint on the environment and reduces energy costs. It anticipates future, more sustainable design approaches to urban living.Save this picture!© Evan JosephProject gallerySee allShow lessorrrn Cafe / ATMOROUNDSelected ProjectsClosing Film – Shelter Without Shelter (World Premiere)EventProject locationAddress:New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

A partner at BSB CFO, Chase Morrison offered an engaging presentation entitled, “Your Numbers Are Speaking, Are You Listening?” that lit up the room. The vibrant mix of entrepreneurs and business owners who showed up at 7:30 in the morning for the workshop learned about the details of financial planning from the perspective of a truly experienced business consultant and chief financial officer.The problem for owners of businesses across the board as they continue to grow is cash management and how to effectively use resources to help a company. Although every business journey appears predictable, the result always seems to be a surprise. In the beginning, the finders are in charge as they grow the business during the honeymoon phase. A B2B truism, however is the simple reality that “Most Finders do not spend a lot of time methodically planning their business infrastructure.”As a result, after the initial infrastructure creation and the honeymoon phase, most businesses hit a point where growth without proper planning begins to cause damage. The original ethos and strengths of the business can be lost as Minders take control of the day-to-day business operations, replacing the initial success of the Finders with a more traditional business perspective. If the Finders did not plan their infrastructure, formalizing the zeitgeist of a company, the new infrastructure can sap the life from a company. After all, a B2B truism is, “The failure to plan infrastructure will eventually hurt the company.”When Minders take over from the Finders, a business sinks into the morass of bureaucracy. Stuck in this morass, financial problems arise because new business is not being generated. In addition, previous business relationships can be damaged as the company becomes more faceless and less enthusiastic as it grows. Most importantly, the initial emphasis on cash flow is replaced by meetings and management. With the honeymoon phase a distant memory, welcome to The Danger Zone.If a business wants to escape The Danger Zone, the company’s mindset needs to be shifted from minding back to finding. By focusing on the key metrics of a healthy company while delegating the minding responsibilities, Finders can revive the heart of what made the business a success in the first place. The focus needs to be on cash flow and developing processes that produce relevant insight into the mechanics of what makes the business successful.As Chase Morrison’s engaging presentation continued, he went into a number of advanced business metrics about managing working capital and creating viable benchmarks. A business owner needs to start with their Value Proposition by understanding why companies buy from them as opposed to a competitor. By identifying critical success factors and asking the right questions, even a business in financial trouble can recover and return again to the road of success.Throughout the presentation, questions were asked as the Pasadena entrepreneurs applied the concepts being explained to the realities of their own business lives. Once again, the University Club has shown its value to the Pasadena community as a place where professionals can gather to learn from each other in a supportive environment. Given the enormous insight provided by Chase Morrison at the latest Business Growth Workshop, it is exciting to imagine what is to come in the second half of the program. If you are a business owner in Pasadena, it is an opportunity that truly should be taken advantage of in order to help optimize your company and build your network.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.

Khan, in order to show bonafide intention, had agreed to submit a sum of Rs. 25 lakhs in the Registry of the Supreme Court, toward the cost of travel of the migrants belonging to districts of Basti and Sant Kabir Nagar, irrespective of their caste, creed and religion. It was further contended that as Khan himself was a migrant, he was well-versed with the plight of the migrants who had been left to fend for themselves in the midst of the national lockdown imposed in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, the Supreme Court Bench comprising of Justices Ashok Bhushan, SK Kaul and MR Shah, noted that the Petitioner had deposited the Rs. 25 lakhs in the SC Registry, as had been duly averred in his plea. Senior Advocate Sanjay Hegde, on behalf of the Petitioner, submitted to the Bench that as most of the migrants had reached their home, the money which had been deposited by Petitioner for the welfare of the migrant workers must be disbursed as compensation to families of those migrant workers who had died during the crisis. An IA had also been filed in this regard which stated that the Petitioner had put on record for compensation five migrant workers who had met the fate of horrific death in their attempt to reach home and that the money deposited should be disbursed to the families of those five individuals. The Bench noted that particulars of those five families must be provided to the SC Registry within two weeks. Accordingly, after requisite verification, the SC Registry would send the money to the Legal Service Authority of the district which would then disburse the amount to the concerned families. In light of the above direction, the petition was disposed of. Next Storylast_img read more
