Shane Williams – King of the Wingers

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Best advice you’ve ever been givenJust to play with a smile on your face and don’t take things too seriously. If anybody asks me, that’s the advice I always give. Happy day: Williams celebrates his first Test try with Gareth ThomasFavourite try It’s not hard to pick this one. The try I’ll never forget is my first one for Wales, against Italy in 2000. I finished off a passing sequence – Mark Taylor put me through a hole – so it’s not the most extravagant try I’ve ever scored. I’ve been lucky to score a lot of tries, but that one is the one that always jumps up at me.Best momentIndividually, being named IRB Player of the Year in 2008. That was an incredible feeling – not many people have got that opportunity. I’ve played in great games with great guys, but when you win a trophy like that and get that record of achievement it makes all the hard work worthwhile.Biggest regretNothing really. Things haven’t always gone my way but I wouldn’t change anything in my career. I was out of favour (with Wales) for a while and at the time I felt that was unjustified, so if I went back in time I’d try not to feel so sorry for myself.I’m not very greedy and I’m very happy with the career I’ve had, so I wouldn’t change much, not even the low points.center_img Safety in numbers: Shane Williams chuckles as his Wales team-mates don masks of his face in trainingBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIT’S THE end of an era. The days of Shane Williams delighting crowds all over the world with his dancing feet, jinking runs and turn of pace are over now that he’s played his final Test for Wales, his country losing 24-18 to Australia at the Millennium Stadium.The legendary winger did manage to bow out in style, however. It was his 87th Test in a Wales shirt (he has also played in four Tests for the Lions) and he touched down for his 60th try in international rugby with the final move of the game.  As the man himself said: “I couldn’t have scripted it better.”It may not have been the victory he was so hoping to end his international career with, but when he rounded the Wallaby defence and touched down with a flourish he received the biggest cheer of the day. Chants of ‘Shane, Shane’ reverberated around the stadium and tears streamed down his face in the post-match interview as it all hit home.It’s a shame that his like may never be seen again on the world stage. People of his diminutive stature are now more likely to be overlooked in favour of bigger, stronger players, but Williams has proved that size doesn’t matter as he’s outfoxed far bigger opponents and produced skills of such a sublime nature that few can replicate them. He is truly one of a kind and Ospreys fans will be delighted that he plans to run out for his region for at least a couple more years.Now he’s hung up his international boots, we asked Williams for a few key moments in his career…Favourite game The New Zealand pool game at the 2003 World Cup. It was probably the game that restarted my international career. In that respect it has a lot of meaning, and it was a great game to watch. I was given that opportunity and I was lucky enough to take it. I’ve not looked back since, so it’s the most important.last_img read more

England v Barbarians Quilter Cup Preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Eddie Jones’s England squad to face South Africa England v Barbarians Quilter Cup PreviewEngland will face a world-class Barbarians side this Sunday competing for the Quilter Cup. England are the current holders after beating the Barbarians 28-14 last year.After three losses in a row during the Six Nations, a confidence-boosting win is much needed by England with the World Cup just over a year away.As a result, head coach Eddie Jones has named a starting XV with a mix of experience and young blood to create some competition for places with the tour of South Africa on the horizon.Danny Cipriani’s inclusion on the bench is particularly newsworthy, although time will tell if Jones decides to use him at full-back or his traditional fly-half role during the match, while Elliot Daly is given the nod at full-back with Mike Brown moving to the wing.Jones said: “This is a good young squad and their work ethic has been outstanding over the last two weeks. Their application to learn has been very good but they are very young at Test rugby level so this week’s match against the Barbarians is a fantastic opportunity for them to step up.“It is a great opportunity for them to show they deserve to wear the English rose, to show they can be in contention for the World Cup and a great opportunity for them to put us on the front foot ahead of the South Africa tour.“You never know what to expect from the Barbarians team. We know they will be well coached by Pat Lam, we know they have got good individual players and some outstanding individual players, so we need to be up for the unexpected.”Starting XV (* signifies uncapped players): Elliot Daly; Jonny May, Henry Trinder*, Piers Francis, Mike Brown; George Ford (co-captain), Ben Youngs; Joe Marler, Jack Singleton*, Kyle Sinckler, Elliott Stooke*, Joe Launchbury, Chris Robshaw (co-captain), Tom Curry, Zach Mercer*.Replacements: George McGuigan*, Ellis Genge, Nick Schonert*, Josh Beaumont*, Mark Wilson, Dan Robson*, Danny Cipriani, Denny Solomona. Legend: Lobbe will retire after the Barbarians match against England on Sunday (Getty Images) Winger Chris Ashton is returning to Twickenham to… Find out which players Eddie Jones has picked… Ashton will join several other world-class players in the team on Sunday, but as always with the Barbarians it is about getting them to play cohesively in such a short period of time that is the biggest challenge. Head coach Pat Lam is not concerned, though.He said: “It’s an exciting challenge to bring together a side in five days but everything we’ve done has been about improving our chances of winning this game.”“We have very high-quality individuals – and they’ve worked hard and risen to the challenge of coming together as a team, which is what we’ll need to compete with a top class international side.”Starting XV: Chris Ashton; Josua Tuisova, Semi Radradra, Josh Matavesi, Niyi Adeolokun; Finn Russell, Rhodri Williams; Denis Buckley, Benjamin Kayser, John Afoa, Ultan Dillane, Sateleki Timani, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe (captain), Justin Tipuric, Victor Vito.

Airbnb invites charities to run social impact experiences to fundraise

first_img Accommodation-sharing service Airbnb is inviting charities to offer ‘social impact experiences’ through its platform to encourage travellers to engage in social causes. The experiences are both educational and a new way for the charity to raise funds.Airbnb will promote the experiences offered by charities via its site. Travellers visiting a particular location will see these experiences listed for them as a relevant local attraction to make their stay even more rewarding. Experiences are open to anyone, not just those who have booked accommodation through Airbnb.The platform has been offering standard experiences as an add-on for nearly three years. For these commercial experiences Airbnb charges a 20% service fee. However, for Social Impact Experiences Airbnb is waiving this fee, meaning that 100% of the proceeds from the experience are received by the charity.In other words, Airbnb is promoting charities’ experiences to a relevant audience, handling the payments, and passing them to the charity. Payment is made 24 hours after the experience has concluded.So far more than 900 charity and nonprofit organisations around the world have created social impact experiences, and raised funds as a result. Not surprisingly, the connections made at these events can have other positive results for the charity. Some report that experiences have resulted in “long-term donors, volunteers, and ambassadors for an organisation”, according to Airbnb.Jon, host of “Paddle with Penguins”
 in Cape Town, South Africa, told Airbnb: “This is the type of clientele we have always wanted to reach – young, energetic, informed people with a passion…that matches even our own.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Tagged with: Airbnb Community fundraising fundraising events How your charity can take partNeedless to say, Airbnb experiences and Airbnb Homes are separate offerings.Neither the charity nor the individual host presenting the experience need to be offering to host visitors in their home or property!You can find out how to register your charity as a Social Impact Host from Airbnb. Airbnb reports that, running the Social Impact Programme internationally, “some nonprofits are earning over $50k a year” from their experience events.

But there are certain eligibility and quality requirements before an experience is accepted for the programme.The type of experience is entirely down to the charity. Indeed, many charities will already offer something similar, like a guided tour of their theatre, a cycle-ride around their wetlands, a meet the research scientists event, or a visit to their animal sanctuary.To gain a sense of the wide variety of social impact experiences available right now around the world, explore Airbnb’s social impact experiences section.In general experiences need to run regularly throughout the year. People are travelling and staying in places via Airbnb throughout the year. If your annual event only shows up in search results for those booking a visit for a few days each year, it is unlikely to generate much interest or income. So repeated experiences are recommended. So too are those that also take place outside traditional holiday times.Guide Dogs were an early partner in the Social Impact Experience programme.last_img read more

Chicago ‘Fight for $15’

first_imgMore than 2,000 workers — mostly young, Black or Brown and minimum-wage — rallied and marched in the rain in Chicago on May 23 to demand that McDonald’s pay its workers a living wage. The company just doubled its CEO’s annual pay to $15 million and is spending hundreds of millions on a new corporate headquarters here while its workers are struggling to survive. Speakers from Fight for 15, the Service Employees union and other organizations told the crowd: “We are marching because this is not only a worker’s issue, but also an immigrant, racial, women’s, LGBTQ and environmental issue.

Before hearing, call to drop terrorism charges against website editor

Anouzla was arrested in Rabat on 17 September for posting a link to an article in the Spanish daily El País, which in turn had a link to a video attributed to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).He was freed on 25 October after more than five weeks in “preventive detention” but continues to face a possible sentence of 10 to 30 years in prison on various charges including providing “material assistance” to a terrorist organization and “defending terrorist crimes.” Both the Arabic and French-language versions of Lakome have been blocked since 17 October.Read these previous press releases: – Before King Mohammed travelled to Washington on 22 November – Before US Secretary of State John Kerry’s scheduled visit to Morocco on 11-12 November (which was finally cancelled) – Before French foreign minister Laurent Fabius’ meeting with his Moroccan counterpart as part of the 5+5 dialogue on 23 October – A joint appeal by 60 human rights organizations on 10 October to go furthercenter_img Receive email alerts News RSF_en News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News Help by sharing this information Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa June 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

A missing diver who spent an entire night lost at sea had the ‘will to survive,’ officials say

first_imgFWC(HUDSON, Fla.) — After hours of searching the waters off the coast of Florida, rescuers on Thursday found a missing diver who they said had spent an entire night alone, lost at sea, but said he had “a will to survive.”Terry Hayes, 57, and Michael Pavlich, 34, were exploring a popular scuba diving site on Wednesday known as the RJ Thompson wreck in the Gulf of Mexico, some 30 miles off of Hudson, Florida. But the two men, who are seasoned recreational divers, failed to resurface near the 25-foot dive boat that afternoon, officials said.The dive boat operator alerted authorities and the U.S. Coast Guard subsequently launched a search effort, with help from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Four hours later, the crews located Pavlich six miles southeast of the dive site, officials said. His partner was nowhere to be found.Search and rescue crews resumed their efforts Thursday morning. They searched an area of more than 1,700 square nautical miles before Hayes was spotted alive in the water by an offshore vessel belonging to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation.“He’s a fighter, he had a will to survive,” Lt. George Wells of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation said during a press conference Thursday. “I personally think that’s what helped keep him alive throughout the night.”By that point, Hayes had been treading water for more than 20 hours and was “very exhausted,” officials said. He was still in full scuba gear and had a buoyancy compensator, a piece of diving equipment with an inflatable bladder that officials said helped Hayes stay afloat.“He had his diver buoyancy compensator, which kept him alive. He had a flashlight. He drank water,” Coast Guard Cmdr. Bill Walsh told ABC News’ Tampa affiliate WFTS on Thursday. “But also, he had the will to live.”Officials said Pavlich had no reported injuries. WFTS reported that Hayes is said to be doing OK, though both men are exhausted from the ordeal.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Marine Corps reservist under investigation for photo of boots forming a swastika

first_imgiStock/mj0007(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) —  A Marine Corps reservist is under investigation for posting a photo on Instagram that showed four pairs of boots in the shape of a swastika.“We can confirm that Pfc. Anthony D. Schroader is a member of the Selected Marine Corps Reserve and is assigned to 4th Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, Force Headquarters Group, Marine Forces Reserve located in West Palm Beach, Florida,” Marine Forces Reserve confirmed to ABC News on Tuesday.Schroader allegedly sent the photo to Marine veteran Maximilian Uriarte last week, asking him to post it on the social media pages for “Terminal Lance,” a popular comic series by Uriarte about the Marine Corps.Instead, Uriate tweeted the photo to Marine Corps officials, asking them to investigate. He then deleted the tweet after he got confirmation from the Corps that they would look into the photo, according to Task & Purpose which first reported the story.“There is no place for racial hatred or extremism in the Marine Corps,” Marine Forces Reserve said. “The Terminal Lance tweet featuring derogatory behavior by Marines is currently being investigated and any further comment would be premature.”Schroader joined the Marine Forces Reserve last July and graduated from boot camp in January. He arrived at his first assignment in West Palm Beach on Friday, the same day he allegedly sent the photo to Uriarte.The Marine Forces Reserve could not identify the other individuals with boots in the photo due to the ongoing investigation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announces $250 million COVID vaccine commitment

first_imgLUDOVIC MARIN/AFP via Getty ImagesBy HALEY YAMADA, JON SCHLOSBERG, and SENI TIENABESO(NEW YORK) — Bill Gates has warned about the need to prepare for a pandemic for years. Since the novel coronavirus swept across the country in March, the billionaire has put his money where his mouth is.“This will be seared in the memory of this generation, hopefully enough, to invest, to be more ready next time. Hopefully to invest more in all these infectious diseases that are still a huge problem,” Gates told ABC News.The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced a new $250 million commitment on Thursday, adding to the foundation’s total investment to $1.75 billion into combating COVID-19 through vaccine development and distribution.“The plan is coming together to get this vaccine out. So, you know, it’s a tragedy, but there’s a lot of heroes in the process of getting it to end,” said Gates.Gates, who had invested in the vaccine technology in 2015, emphasized the importance of messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines ending this pandemic and potentially ones to come in the future.“Well, your immune system is kind of magic. If it sees a foreign shape once, then it says, ‘Wow, if I ever see that again, I am going to react very quickly,’ and so that it doesn’t cause a problem,” said Gates.“With mRNA, we actually give instructions to your cells to make them build part of the virus,” said Gates, who said that the immune system kicks in to help inoculate against the virus.The U.K. was the first country to authorized the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and began distributing it to first-wave participants on Dec. 8.The U.S. is likely not far behind on authorizing emergency use and beginning to distribute a that COVID-19 vaccine. On Dec. 10, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration advisory panel held a hearing on the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Alex Azar, the U.S Department of Health and Human Services secretary, offered ABC News an optimistic look the vaccine authorization process.“If things are on track, the advisory committee goes well, I believe we could see FDA authorization within days,” Azar told ABC News on Dec. 6.Gates said that citizens in other countries may not be as lucky and could potentially be left behind amid the rush to manufacture, obtain and distribute the vaccines.“Well, there are many countries that have no vaccine factories at all, and it doesn’t make any sense that their citizens wouldn’t get any protection,” said Gates. “We want to end the disease everywhere, so we’re not constantly having these re-infections. And if anyone cares about equity, they should not want the vaccines only to go to the rich people or the rich countries.”President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Dec. 9 that stated the U.S. would only share its vaccine doses after “all Americans who choose to be vaccinated” are able to.Gates said that he was hopeful other billionaires will step up to help fill the global gaps in vaccine distribution.“I always think we could do more, we should give more, give smarter,” he told ABC News. “I hope in the future people are even more generous.”Although vaccine authorization and distribution is imminent, the U.S. saw its deadliest week since the beginning of the pandemic this week, with 15,578 deaths — roughly the equivalent to 92 deaths every hour, ABC News reported.In less than a week alone, the U.S. has reported 1.4 million new cases.Gates said he hopes what the U.S. has done and learned during the coronavirus pandemic will help mitigate the next global disease outbreak.“Well, you know, just the way people have come together on this. Science, caring about other people,” he said. “I’m very hopeful the way we get out of this disaster sets a model for innovation and cooperation.”ABC News’ Adam Kelsey and Adia Robinson contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
