Ben Pegna: How to produce quick ball in contact

first_img“If you’re not able to power through a wrong-footed tackler, assert yourself by driving forward with vigorous pumping of the legs. Keep the shoulders and hips square – any turn sideways will decrease your power and give the tackler easier access to the ball.”Forward march: Harlequins George Merrick shows good leg drive. Photo: Getty Images5. A IS FOR AGGRESSIVE RIP“If the defender makes the tackle, the carrier must present the ball on his terms. ‘Rip’ ball away from tackler, with shoulder nearest the tackler aggressively dropping, chest facing down, ball below upper torso. Keep between the ball and tackler to stop them accessing it.”6. P IS FOR PLACEMENT“Once face down, the carrier must place the ball as far back as possible. It’s a secondary movement, so if you land facing one touchline you make a big effort to twist and present away from the defence. A long placement with body parallel to the touchline is ideal.” Quick ball in contact is intrinsic to achieving the fluid rugby to which good teams aspire. “The FLAP method not only encourages efficient ball retention but is easy for players to recall,” says Ben Pegna, who has worked with Wasps’ academy and England Sevens. “It helps them to repeat good habits under pressure.”1. AVOID T-BONING“The first rule of contact is to totally avoid it. The worst type of contact is called T-boning, when a player runs straight into an opponent. This reduces your chance of generating quick ball. So coach players to avoid contact and then, if contact occurs, to avoid T-boning.”Front on: Players should avoid running straight into contact. Photo: Getty Images2. FLAP PRINCIPLES“The ball-carrier should drive his shoulders through the contact, with hips facing forward. You want to recycle the ball within three seconds and at all levels I use the mnemonic ‘FLAP’ to help players understand their role and be dominant in the contact area.”3. F IS FOR FOOTWORK“Ideally, a carrier sidesteps the defender and breaks the line. Next best is partial evasion so he only gets an arm on you, not a shoulder. Finally, unbalancing him, so that he turns his hips or sits back on his heels, will still help you win the collision and generate quick ball.”4.

Photo: Getty ImagesTo check out the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.WHAT YOU COULD DOIntegrate the FLAP principles into every training session, even if just for five minutes.Play a touch-based game where once the ball-carrier is touched you go live at the breakdown. Or keep it non-contact but award extra points when you see a FLAP aspect executed well.Footwork: work in pairs in a 3m box. The defender loosely holds the shorts of the attacker, who aims to step and get into the space directly behind him – think of a C-shaped run. Start at 50%, then lift the intensity.Placement: work in pairs with four different-coloured cones. The carrier lies with a tackler on top applying pressure, and wriggles and fights to present the ball to cone called by the coach.This article first appeared in the June 2017 issue of Rugby World magazine.last_img read more

first_imgRapidísimas An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Rector Belleville, IL Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Submit an Event Listing Associate Rector Columbus, GA Featured Events Rector Albany, NY Al final del tercer debate presidencial de Estados Unidos el pasado lunes 22 de octubre alguien preguntó: ¿Qué dijeron los candidatos sobre América Latina? La respuesta fue “América Latina fue la gran ausente, la gran olvidada”.Aunque el papa Benedicto XVI ha sido caracterizado por la prensa como un erudito más bien tímido y callado, los hechos demuestran otra cosa. Por ejemplo, el papa ha tenido mano firme frente a los obispos que por causas diversas han tenido que abandonar su ministerio. Ahora que el Sínodo de Obispos sesiona en Roma se ha sabido que por lo menos 77 obispos en los últimos seis años han sido objeto de acciones disciplinarias que en algunos casos ha significado la remoción de su ministerio o la deposición canónica.La diócesis de Carolina del Sur anunció que como protesta dejará de pertenecer a la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos. Esta es la quinta diócesis que toma esta decisión. Según observadores las principales causas son las acciones liberales relacionadas con la sexualidad humana. La diócesis, una de las más antiguas de la Iglesia Episcopal está compuesta por 70 parroquias y unos 30,000 fieles. El obispo Mark Lawrence ha sido suspendido en sus funciones por “no guardar la fe, la unidad y la disciplina de la iglesia”. En una declaración la diócesis dijo que la Iglesia Nacional había hecho “un ataque a nuestro obispo en momentos en que se negociaba una solución satisfactoria”.Un artículo que clasifica a los mormones como secta, ha sido eliminado de la página web de la Asociación Evangelística Billy Graham, luego de una visita del candidato presidencial al anciano evangelista en Carolina del Norte. El artículo dice: “La Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días, comúnmente conocida como la iglesia mormona, enseña doctrinas o creencias que se alejan del mensaje bíblico de la fe cristiana”. En el listado de sectas aparecen también los Testigos de Jehová, la Iglesia Unitaria, la Iglesia de la Unificación, la Iglesia de la Cienciología y los espiritistas.La joven canadiense Amanda Todd, de 13 años, se suicidó recientemente a causa del acoso de sus compañeros. El Parlamento canadiense ha iniciado un debate para frenar y castigar a los responsables de hechos similares. Según la prensa en el país ocurren 282,000 casos de acoso mensualmente.Al principio hubo aplausos pero después de varios análisis la cosa cambió. Nos referimos a la reciente decisión del gobierno de Cuba de eliminar el temido permiso de salida y la carta de invitación para viajar fuera de la isla. Observadores políticos señalan que no es una “verdadera concesión” ya que hay toda una serie de requisitos que cumplir y al final del proceso los funcionarios cubanos deciden quién sale y quién no.En el Cuerno de África la vida de 11 millones de personas está en peligro de muerte por el hambre existente. Somalia es el país más afectado por la peor sequía de los últimos 60 años, que se agrava por el conflicto armado. Miles de niños han muerto en los últimos meses. La ayuda internacional no es suficiente, dicen los expertos. Las sequías prolongadas y la falta de métodos modernos para la producción de alimentos, son responsables.Otra área de preocupación es la violencia étnica y religiosa contra los cristianos en Nigeria. Las fotos son tan crudas que las publicaciones de Europa y Estados Unidos prefieren no usarlas. Muchas iglesias han sido incendiadas y cientos de cristianos han muerto.La prensa internacional ha informado que Evo Morales, presidente de Bolivia, ha promulgado la ley que crea la Defensoría de la Madre Tierra, para proteger al medio ambiente.Con 17 votos a favor y 14 en contra, la Cámara de Senadores de Uruguay dio sanción definitiva al proyecto de ley sobre el aborto que ya se había votado en la Cámara de Representantes. Ahora falta que el presidente José Mujica firme para promulgar la ley. Una legisladora dijo que “toda mujer mayor de edad tiene derecho a decidir la interrupción voluntaria de su embarazo durante las primeras 12 semanas de gestación”. Uruguay se convierte así en el segundo país de América Latina en despenalizar el aborto; el otro es Cuba.Cirilo, patriarca de la Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa, ha rechazado las críticas sobre su “progresiva relación” con el presidente ruso Vladimir Putin. “Cuando la iglesia y el estado trabajan juntos, es bueno para el pueblo”, dijo Cirilo de 68 años, hijo y nieto de clérigos ortodoxos.REFRÁN: “Dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres”.

Breaking News: Signature H Vice President releases statement on New Errol…

first_img Reply Mama Mia Not happy IF this project is ‘dead’, then the city needs to ensure that the grounds are kept neat and clean and cut and bill Robert L. Klein, as PR of Larry’s estate, who is actually the sole manager of 5th Hole…and if bills are not paid then place a daily fine against the property, and if bills are still not being paid..then place LIEN’s on the property as you would do to any city resident…….some one needs to be held accountable for the current and future status….after two years of promises….imo New Errol Update from Signature HDear Errol Community:Signature H Property Group LLC and New Errol Partners LLC would like to provide the Errol Community with an update regarding the status of the New Errol project. I want to thank you for your patience and apologize for the lack of communication you’ve been given.Signature H and New Errol Partners remain committed to moving this project forward. We have partners in place for the financing, construction, and management of the New Errol project. However, commitments from these partners are expiring as we continue to be delayed by the Estate of Julian Klein. The delays have also pushed the development schedule to a point where opening the golf course and clubhouse in 2019 is in jeopardy – a potential death blow to the project.The key aspect for this project to move forward is for the property owner, 5th Hole Investments, LLC, taking action on their agreement to transfer the property, upon rezoning, to a new ownership entity (of which 5th Hole is a member), New Errol Partners, LLC. Without this authorization by the members and managers of 5th Hole, the company has no asset to develop.Unfortunately, it does not appear 5th Hole intends to comply with our agreements or at least shows no urgency to do so. We haven’t been provided any explanation by 5th Hole Investments as to why, and we fail to see any logic in their inaction. From our perspective, moving forward with the project is undeniably the best-case scenario for all parties involved, including the Klein estate, 5th Hole Investments, the community and the city.As this may be the last statement from Signature H to the Errol community, I would like to provide more detailed transparency regarding the past two months.Immediately upon the sudden passing of our partner Larry Klein, we were informed that Larry’s estate would now become the sole manager of 5th Hole Investments. Since management rights passing to an estate is not typical, we requested documentation to understand how this was possible. The family assured us they intend to move forward and would arrange an in-person meeting following the funeral and grieving process to formalize the transfer.Since then, we were told that Robert L. Klein, Larry’s son, had been appointed as the personal representative (PR) of Larry’s estate, despite being described by the family as “not having a strong relationship with Larry”.  We were then also told that two eminent domain attorneys from Minnesota and Wisconsin would be representing the Klein estate’s interest in 5th Hole Investments, LLC, as its sole manager. They immediately proceeded to take the unilateral actions of shuttering the clubhouse, banning us from the property and halting the project, all of which to our knowledge was done wrongfully. We reached out to the family and both attorneys multiple times in an effort to understand their actions, yet we were provided no logical explanation and only hostility. The attorneys for Larry’s estate continue to insist that the PR of Larry’s estate is the sole manager of 5th Hole Investments and as such, has the right to approve of all actions since he now controls the property. However, despite multiple requests, the estate never furnished any documentation proving that Robert L. Klein, as PR of Larry’s estate, is actually the sole manager of 5th Hole, something that is seemingly in contravention of the 5th Hole operating agreement.We have contacted the four living members/managers of 5th Hole, who to our knowledge are the only members and managers with voting rights, and provided them the agreements and an open line of communication. However, they have either been on vacation or unwilling to even discuss the project. We have encouraged these members/managers to contact their legal counsel to hopefully expedite this process, but they don’t appear to have done so.At this point, Signature H’s options are limited. When an abrupt stoppage occurs in the midst of a development process, and a resolution is not immediately forthcoming, it is typical for the property to be encumbered with numerous liens and litigation. This fact will only add more delay and further complicate the path to resuming the project.These unfortunate circumstances are not what we envisioned for this project. We have worked tirelessly for the past 2 years to make New Errol a reality for this deserving community. We had begun development on the golf course, completed our plans and architecture, secured our funding, were proposing a CDD to the City, but unfortunately, it appears Signature H’s involvement could conclude here. I am very sorry to write these words, and I feel disappointed for every community supporter who has believed in New Errol. I apologize for not being better prepared for this situation, as we had tremendous faith in the 5th Hole managers honoring not only all of our signed and ratified agreements but also the wishes of our beloved partner.As of today, we still remain committed to making New Errol a reality, but we’re truly running out of time. We need to gain immediate clarity on the intentions of the 5th Hole managers to save this project. Otherwise, the likely outcome is litigation involving liens and defaulted agreements, which could take years and will assuredly end the chance of Larry Klein’s vision of New Errol coming to fruition. As always, if there are further developments I will continue to keep the community apprised at the earliest possible time. Until then, I will refrain from any further comments as we transition into the legal stages of this resolution.Sincerely,Helmut J.

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply I finally got to go vote early today, even though our truck is still in the shop. Before I decided on who to vote for on my sample ballot, I looked up each candidate’s name up on the computer, if I didn’t know them, or know anything about them…..well, one candidate, and I won’t reveal their name, strongly advocates FOR medical marijuana, and has been very vocal about it. This candidate opened their candidate campaign account for donations given and expenses to be paid out of at a well known bank, I am not naming the bank, and guess what? When the bank discovered this candidate was FOR medical marijuana, the bank closed the candidate’s account! Imagine…..!!! This seems strange to me!!! So candidates, beware, if you are FOR medical marijuana, then beware of a certain bank, because if you open a campaign account there, they may shut your account down, and you will have to go to another bank that does not have the other bank’s policy. You might want to keep that in mind if you decide to run for politics in the future.

San Diego for Trayvon Martin

first_imgWW photo: Bob McCubbinThe July 13 “not guilty” verdict for George Zimmerman in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., generated a massive outpouring of anger and disgust all over the U.S., especially on the day after the verdict. One such protest was held in San Diego, Calif., on July 14, where at least 1,000 people attended a rally organized by the Committee Against Police Brutality. The response to this racist verdict is forging unity among many struggles for social justice. For instance, Gloria Verdieu, pictured here, represented the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition and the International Action Center at the San Diego rally.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Studying the Fall of the Market and What’s Next

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Recession U.S. Stock Market 2019-08-15 Mike Albanese Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese The stock market did its best to recover Thursday after falling off the cliff on Wednesday, sending Wall Street into panic as the 10-year and 2-year Treasury yield curves inverted for the first time in more than a decade. The Dow Jones, which dropped more than 800 points Wednesday, began its slow recovery. As of 4 p.m. CDT, the Dow gained nearly 100 points and the S&P 500 was up 7 points. CNBC, however, revealed the 30-year Treasury yield fell to record lows and the 10-year yield fell below 1.5%—the first time that happened in three years. “I don’t believe the markets can rebound significantly with the current economic constraints and the political climate becoming more corrosive (heading into a presidential election) as the domestic and global economic expansions come to a halt,” said Mark Dangelo, President of MPD Organizations. “Factor in a U.S. domestic debt of $24 trillion that now exceeds annual GDP, and federal government deficits exceeding $1 trillion a year, the impacts to housing will be pronounced with less money willing to back homeownership now firmly stagnant around 63%.   “And, since global financial markets are now fully connected to each other, the impacts of one country are felt globally, thereby fueling a belief that the certainty of expansion has come to an end.”The 10-year Treasury note hit a low of 1.47% at 2 p.m. EST, while the yield on a 30-year Treasury note fell to 1.94% for the first time ever. The 2-year Treasury yield hit its lowest level since 2017 at 1.47%.Gagan Sharma, President and CEO of BSI Financial, said trade policies are creating uncertainty in the market, which can be causing volatility and the recent crash of the market. President Donald Trump had threatened to impose additional tariffs on China—10% on $300 billion worth of goods—beginning September 1. On Tuesday he announced plans to delay further tariffs on China. The news out of China was just as bleak, as the world’s second-largest economy reported its weakest growth in 17 years and industrial output slowed to 4.8%. Dangelo expects that markets will rise, but noted that until free-market principles overtake “civil war rhetoric of political parties,” the negative news will feed the idea of a pending recession. He also added that financial markets, whether domestic or international, thrive on certainty. He added that the uncertainty now surrounding the market could lead to the housing market feeling the effects, just not immediately. “The immediate impacts to housing may be muted as investors and homeowners wait to assess long-term impacts, but when you factor in the unprecedented and caustic rhetoric from politicians setting policy on Twitter against independent institutions that control monetary policy, the impact will likely be a freezing of an already tepid demand,” he said. Sharma added that the market’s decline and the drop in interest rates could be linked to the market’s view of an increased risk of recession. “Many indicators are showing that, with the inverted yield curve being the most prominent one. The fall in interest rates will likely help the housing market due to improved affordability,” Sharma said. “However, if a recession does occur, that will negatively impact unemployment and income growth for consumers, which would hurt the housing market.”Dangelo also said that the GSEs are in the hands of political interests, and the role of housing loan securitization is “completely dominated by institutions held in limbo.” He added the housing loan securitization has not happened post-Great Recession, resulting in a heavily in-debt government supporting MBSs. “Everything that is now the housing market, beyond where the loans are issued, are materially tied to the U.S. government and the wealth building of equity and bond markets, all of which are experiencing self-inflicted wounds,” Dangelo said.   The Fed will play a large role in the coming months, as they will once again be considering interest rates. Interest rates were cut for the first time in a decade on July 31, when the Fed slashed rates by a quarter of a point.Trump, who sent out a series of tweets following the collapse of the stock market Wednesday, aimed one of his messages toward the Fed. “Spread is way too much as other countries say THANK YOU to clueless Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve. Germany, and many others, are playing the game! CRAZY INVERTED YIELD CURVE! We should easily be reaping big Rewards & Gains, but the Fed is holding us back. We will Win!” the President tweeted. Sharma said if volatility continues and a slowdown of the economy ensues, than the Fed will most likely lower rates again. Dangelo said the combination of the Fed now being called into question, along with remarks made by various leaders, points to a “lack of credibility” for the institution that he says once held the most influential minds of each generation. “As the Fed becomes a political whipping post, their decisions will be viewed as resisting pressure or caving into the Twitter storms,” he said. The question of whether or not a recession is looming is not an easy one to answer, as Sharma said it best: “there is a lot of uncertainty on this. It’s hard to forecast this one.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago August 15, 2019 944 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

In this regard, the Bench ordered the Project Director, BSACS, to file his personal affidavit, indicating the steps taken by the society for proper and complete interpretation of various Statute, Rules and Schemes, notified for the benefit of AIDS victims.The Court also sought a report on appointment of statutory authorities for the purpose and the funds allocated to them. The order stated, “Shri Manoj Kumar, Project Director, Bihar AIDS Control Society (BSACS) shall file his personal affidavit indicating the steps taken for proper and complete interpretation of the provisions of law. Also, what is the status with regard to constitutions of the bodies, statutory or otherwise, in the State of Bihar, as envisaged under the Act/Rules framed thereunder shall be stated in the affidavit. Importantly, what is the budgetary allocation and whether the amount stands utilized or not shall also be stated in the affidavit. Hopefully, all steps for implementation of the provisions/law/rules shall be taken before next date of hearing.” During the course of hearing, the Project Director assured the Court that he shall sit with the Amicus Curiae and prepare a chart, indicating the provisions that requires implementation in the State of Bihar. The provisions shall include both State and Government schemes. The issue at hand was thrown to light in a PIL filed by Council for Protection of Public Rights and Welfare in 2017, highlighting the sudden increase in number of HIV patients in the State. The Court was also informed about inadequacy of infrastructure for dealing with the said category of patients. Thereafter, recognizing the ‘public importance’ of the case on one hand, and apathy and inaction shown by the State on the other, the High Court had called for a status report. It had also sought proper implementation of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (Prevention And Control) Act, 2017.  The matter is now fixed for consideration on April 5.
