Squeeze tightens on households

first_img Household finances have plummeted at the sharpest rate for two years – and the average amount of cash Britons have available to spend dropped at a record rate in March, according to the Markit household finance index released today. The slump left households at their most pessimistic since the survey began in February 2009, Markit said. There was also worrying news for the jobs market, as the survey reported the sharpest decline in job security for eight months. Furthermore, price pressures continue to squeeze British households, with around 82 per cent of respondents reporting a monthly increase in prices paid for goods and services. Inflation expectations dipped only slightly compared to January’s record high.

Rebel Effect – Blog

first_img2011 may have seen the Rebels defence worryingly easy to permeate, with a scarce ability to create and score tries, but with the notable signings of two of the best attacking backs in world rugby in James O’Connor and Kurtley Beale, supporters should have much to cheer about on the field in 2012.And while some would say the Melbourne Rebels first season could be deemed unsuccessful after collecting the Wooden Spoon, their effect on the Victorian rugby community should be considered none other than the ultimate triumph! MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – MARCH 19: An exterior view of AAMI Park during the round two NRL match between the Melbourne Storm and the Gold Coast Titans at AAMI Park on March 19, 2011 in Melbourne, Australia. (Photo by Quinn Rooney/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS AAMI Park – Home to Melbourne Rebels Too often in sport the term ‘success’ is confined solely to the field of play. Well, meet the Melbourne Rebels, who are happily changing that perception, writes Rugby World reader, Larissa Falls.Long heralded as ‘The Sporting Capital of the World,’ Melbourne was home to a new sport and team in 2011; the Rebels! Not only was it competing in the newly established and formatted Super 15, it also had to do battle with Victoria’s religion, Aussie Rules (a sport modified from rugby rules no less!).As Kingston Park will never experience the attendances witnessed at St. James Park, and as Sale will never compete with footballing giants Manchester United and City, the Rebels will probably never captivate the vast number of hearts and minds of Melbournians like A.F.L- a sport which will in no way relinquish its stranglehold on the sporting landscape of Victoria!Even more vital therefore, is for Melbourne to possess a Super Rugby outfit; to act as an aspiring goal for youngsters; to propel them away from Aussie Rules and towards Union. Rebel Rising (‘B’ Team) Coach, Josh Philpot highlights this crucial element.“Since the loss of the Australian Rugby Championship team in 2007, the game has stagnated in Victoria. There was no pathway for the players; nothing to aspire to. So the game in this state was more and more participation, not progression,” he explains.“Having the Rebels now in the city gives the existing players in Victoria something to aim for. It changes the whole landscape for the community. To develop future talent, there must be a focal point that players can rely on. The Rebels are exactly that,” he says.And it seems to have had an immediate impact.Last year the Victorian Rugby Union (the state’s rugby governing body), had to discard the Under 20s trial as there simply was not enough interest. This season, a resounding 69 players turned out.And it is not just State representative sides that have benefited from the emergence of the Super Rugby outfit. “A number of new schools are partaking in the VRU Development programs. More teams are in the Victorian Schools Rugby Union competition, and there are increased numbers in Club Juniors,” says VRU State Representative Manager, Tyronne Mitchell.“The effect has not only reached players in Victoria, increases in Coaching, Managing and Refereeing numbers have also been recorded.“State players, coaches and support staff now know there is a possible pathway to become a professional. Levels of excitement and professionalism have increased dramatically. Since the Rebels inception in October 2010, the awareness of rugby has increased significantly,” he says.Results of an independent survey of the Rebels 7,600 members concluded that 83% were likely to renew in season 2012, while awarding the Rebels line-up an overall score of 7.2 out of 10. Coupled with solid television ratings and an average home crowd of 18,000, it is indicative of the manner in which Melbournians have taken to the Union code, and connected with the Rebels.To help pull the team and town together, the Melbourne club devised a ‘5 Star Engagement Program,’ which, as Josh Philpot explains “sees each player attached to a local school, club, business and charity.” Such an initiative was aimed at forging public relationships, spreading the ‘Rebel’ brand, and providing accessible rugby to every Victorian.While they may not have had the most successful debut season- propping up the table in an unenviable fifteenth position and claiming the wooden spoon- fans were more than happy to support their struggling side. After all, the Rebels did manage three wins to record a better inaugural season than the Western Force and South Africa’s Cheetahs.Yet it was the Rebels player’s unwaveringly optimistic attitude, their acceptance and behaviour as role models that kept followers praising the Melbourne side’s culture.There was off course the odd off-field headline, but the Rebels were a club that wanted to build a positive reputation, and to establish a strong ethos that players wanted to be a part of. This can be credited to the Rebels ‘5 Star Pledge.’ Acrostic to their name it reads: ‘Respect, Excellence, Balance, Ethos, Leadership.’“The Rebels 5 Star Pledge is the foundation by which the club is built upon,” says Josh Philpot. “Simply, it is paramount to who we are, what we are about and why we exist. Being a good rugby player is not enough. Being a good human being is more important.”This highly regarded ethos the Melbourne outfit stand by, it is hoped, will flow into the attitudes of all members of the Victorian rugby community.“We hope by creating a positive experience around rugby, around the Melbourne Rebels, that rugby will be a game that people come to enjoy, that they benefit from being around,” says Philpot.“It is all about taking the principles of the Rebels team- on and off the field- and into the community.”Just how is this being done in an A.F.L consumed State? Through the ‘Rebel Rugby’ program coordinated with the Melbourne Rebels.“Rebel Rugby is the conduct between the professional team and the Victorian Rugby Union community,” says the Rebel Rugby Manager Josh Philpot.“Our goals at Rebel Rugby are ambitious and varied. We want to ingrain the Rebels philosophy into the community and provide an education for our participants. We also want to assist in growing the standard of the local competition, to provide a real pathway for aspiring players and volunteers, and we want to identify future Rebels within the community,” he says.One thing that is evident among the Melbourne Rebels playing roster, is that not one of them is actually Melbourne born. Does this mean Victoria cannot produce rugby players, and that the Rebels will always be a team full of inter-state and overseas talent? No! In the past, Melbourne’s most talented junior players were waved goodbye and soon enough appeared for the Brumbies; a link which had been forged between the ACT Rugby Union and the Victorian Rugby Union. However, this is certain to change thanks to the crucial introduction of the Rebels.VRU State Representative Manager Tyronne Mitchell explains the necessity of retaining Melbourne’s local talent instead of losing them to oppositional Super Rugby teams.“It is a key area for the Victorian Rugby Union and Melbourne Rebels. It has been proven that if you grow your local players through the system to the very top, the club receives a lot more backing from the community. It builds a stronger culture within the Club.”Significant to Melbourne being granted the newest expansion franchise was its directive of being a viable, suitable and accessible player pathway for aspiring young rugby talent. With the hopes of them moving from local clubs and to higher honours of Super Rugby (with the Rebels) and possibly (hopefully) Wallabies caps. Both of which have already been achieved in just the Melbourne Rebels first season.Nick Phipps has risen up the ranks from a second division rugby player in 2010 to becoming a regular in the Melbourne side in 2011. He claimed the Rebels Player of the Year and Super Rugby Australian Rookie of the Year awards this season, in June, was capped by the Wallabies against Samoa, and headed to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup.Mark Gerrard has returned to the International scene after a four year absence, no. 8 Gareth Delve was called into Wales’ pre-World Cup training camp, and Rebel forward Adam Byrnes was recently appeared for Russia in their World Cup campaign.Available pathways have also been constructed to provide youngsters the opportunity of progression and to “hopefully develop future local Wallabies.”Instead of losing Victorian born players such as ex-Wallabies captain Rocky Elsom, Queensland coach Ewen McKenzie and Wallabies winger Digby Ioane, such talent can now be retained to represent their home town team- the Rebels.The Victorian Rugby Union, in collaboration with the Melbourne Rebels, has established the Junior Gold Program (for under 15’s), the Apprentice Group (under 16’s), Pathway Program (stage two of the Academy) and the Elite Group (on the cusp of Rebel selection).“It is crucial to insert the club standards, ethos and training expectations (into these programs). They focus on strength, conditioning, core skills, and also bring in the core training aspects of the Rebels,” says Tyronne Mitchell.Such sequential programs are hoping to afford the Rebels riches of Melbournian born and bred players, and emulate the successful Academies of Toulouse, Leicester, Harlequins and Leinster.And for the Melbourne outfit, it has already payed dividends.Within five months, 20 year old lock Luke Jones had turned in numerous eye-catching displays for the Rebel Rising side, advanced to Rod McQueen’s first team, made his Rebels debut against the Cheetahs in South Africa, and was rewardingly called up to represent Australia at the Under 20 Junior World Championships in Italy in June.Rebel Rising coach Josh Philpot is pleased to see such progress, alluding to the successful nature of the player pathways and Jones’ personal achievements. “It drives a sense of pride within the State and Club that we are on the right track.“It represents joint success- of Rebel Rugby, the Rebels and Luke himself,” says Philpot“Luke has improved within the Club and the programs that we are running to bring players through. And for him to represent the Club, himself and his family at the Junior Championships is a huge honour.“At the Rebels, we want our players to aspire to National honours and will always encourage this. At its core, this is a game. If playing that game can give young men the chance to achieve and do things that are once in a life time opportunities- by playing a sport they love and enjoy- then one of our reasons for existing has been reached,” says Philpot.“Luke Jones is a great example to the young men in the Victorian Rugby community. Talent is not enough! We have plenty of talent, but Luke shows the locals that hard work is more important. His reward by representing Rebel Rising-and winning the 2011 Rebel Rising Player of the Year Award- going to the Junior World Cup, and playing for the Rebels, all as an Under 20 player…it shows our players that it is achievable…if they work hard enough.”Philpot adds, “We hope his success is a beacon to others- that they will be encouraged to see his success as their opportunity.”Such a guiding light is already shining bright with the Victorian Schoolboys finishing fourth in the Division 1 Championships in Brisbane in July, and making history after beating, for the first time, a traditionally strong team when they triumphed over New South Wales II. Further recognition of the Victoria talent available to the Melbourne Rebels is illustrated by the National selection of two Victorian players (who played against England U18’s in July) after dominant displays during the Championships.And soon enough, Victoria may just become a greater place in the production of future Internationals who have been assisted and nurtured through the Melbourne Rebels system. The evolution of rugby in Melbourne will hopefully see the legacy of the late- and Victoria’s first capped Wallaby- Sir ‘Edward’ Weary Dunlop live on.“The future is bright,” says Tyronne Mitchell. “With a number of new signings to the club, the Rebels team will only lift from the first years performance. This will only have a flow down effect as more spectators will enjoy the sport, which will potentially want more juniors wanting to play in the Victorian Rugby Competition.”last_img read more

Items addressed at the meeting included the adoption of a code of conduct for youth leaders as well as financial guidelines for the management of funds generated from their Youth Fund.“Most of the youths in our province have not received any form of training in the area of leadership,” said the Rev. Robert Sihubwa, provincial youth coordinator. “Most of these young people just rely on their own initiative, but if we are to ensure sustainability in the long run young people need specialized leadership training.”The Executive Committee also proposed training sessions for each of the national churches in the province — Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Botswana — covering such topics as child development, the basics of Anglicanism, facilitation skills, HIV/AIDS and entrepreneurship.“These trainings are meant to groom leaders to take over the reins of the church in future. [Also] children with a solid foundation of their faith can be relied upon to continue contributing to the church even when they grow up,” said Sihubwa.Commenting on the need for training in the province, Bishop William Mchombo of Eastern Zambia said, “It’s important that the youths are empowered and we are agreeable and willing to act positively to help them become better leaders. We are excited that as CPCA we have youths of such caliber; they have shown us that they are innovative and this assures us that the future church will be in safe hands.”The meeting also acknowledged the seriousness with which issues of HIV/AIDS ought to be dealt with in the church. Sihubwa said, “HIV/AIDS affects a good number of our youths with some of them having been orphaned because of the epidemic.”HIV/AIDS forms an integral part of the training because, despite the reduction in new infections on the continent, it is estimated that more than 11 million children under the age of 15 living in sub-Saharan Africa have been robbed of one or both parents by the disease. Grandparents often are left with the burden of having to take care of orphaned children.According to a recent UNICEF report, “The number of orphans in sub-Saharan Africa will continue to rise in the years ahead, due to the high proportion of sub-Saharan African adults already living with HIV/AIDS.”The meeting also emphasized the need for better networking among the youths. The provincial coordinator said that it is only when youths are well organized and in touch with each other that they are able to present a representative picture to church leaders, as well as to share resources within CPCA.Mchombo was impressed that the church has a generation of youths who have a passion for the church and for Christ. He said that despite the province having limited resources, it would support them.The youths have also scheduled a provincial leaders conference and provincial youth conference for 2013 and 2014 respectively.

Buon Giorno offers a smaller, sit-down style café with romantic music, friendly staff, and a menu inspired by the rich Italian culture.Most popular items: Tuscan Orange and Roma Bianca lattes; Almond Croissant.Where: 915, Florence St, Fort Worth, TX 76102Hours: Monday – Friday, 6:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Sunday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.Phone: 817-698-9998 Company Quote: “No man is an island, entire of itself; Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” -John Donne2. Craftwork Coffee Co.This café is so focused on crafting new and innovative drinks that they included it in their name. Every four months, Craftwork creates a brand new menu of drinks, said the company’s co-owner, Collin Sansom.

Home Local News Education Region 18 revamps alternative teacher certification program Region 18 Education Service Center has revamped its alternative certification program in collaboration with The New Teacher Project, a national organization.The first information session on the program, which starts this summer, is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Region 18, 2811 La Force Blvd., in Midland. Applications will be accepted throughout the spring, but the first deadline is April 2 and training begins with orientation May 19, Coordinator of Certification Services Cindy Fouts said.The New Teacher Project, based in Brooklyn, N.Y., was selected for a $15 million Supporting Effective Educator Development Grant Program from the U.S. Department of Education. The funds will be used in Odessa-Midland, New York and Las Vegas, Fouts said.“This is basically the launch of a new program called TEACH 18. It’s a culmination of our three decades of experience, along with the latest national best practices in preparing great teachers,” Fouts said.

Noel earns award Facebook By admin – March 21, 2018 Twitter Pinterest Local NewsEducation Region 18 revamps alternative teacher certification program WhatsApp The program is still for people with bachelor’s degrees who might have gone into different fields, but want to become educators. With some of the SEED grant funds, scholarships will be available that can be applied directly to the cost of the program. The total cost is $5,800, but the scholarships will cover $1,100 of the summer component, including the five weeks of classroom training, Fouts said.Martinez said the scholarships will be available to all applicants.Fouts said candidates undergo a preliminary background check to be accepted into the program. Once they are in the process of getting a teaching position, she said, they also go through fingerprinting with the Texas Education Agency and have to be cleared for that before they can be placed on any type of certificate.One of the key differences between this program and its previous incarnation is that teacher candidates will spend several weeks in classrooms with West Texas students in a summer school arrangement, Fouts said.“Instead of just getting the training, now they’re going to actually be working with students during the summer so they’re more classroom ready on day one when school starts,” Fouts said.Prospective teachers will be in the classroom with an experienced teacher and receiving coaching from the Region 18 staff.“We’ll have summer school sessions in the morning where they’re actively teaching and working, and in the afternoon is more skill building and working on what they’re going to practice the next morning,” Fouts said.“It’s a redesign and collaboration that gives a little bit more resources and more focus on these best practices in recruiting and training teachers,” Fouts added.Juan Pablo Martinez, site manager for TNTP, said the goal is 100 teachers, but they would love to get 1,000 if possible.Fouts said teachers are needed all over the region.Ector County Independent School District Public Information Officer Mike Adkins said Monday that the district is short 110 teachers.“We work mostly with school districts directly. I think this is the first of the Texas regions that we’ve worked with an ESC (education service center). Sometimes school districts get together and say let’s have a recruitment strategy together,” Martinez said.He said the work is fairly similar across districts, it’s important to take the local perspective into account because the local people know what works.“We try to make sure we identify best practices that happen across different places and we spend quite a bit of our time saying, ‘How about this? We’ve seen this work in this state. We’ve seen this work in this district. How would that play out here?’” Martinez said.He added that The New Teacher Project wants to make sure they’re not saying they know how things should work.“Half the time there’s a reason things have been done a certain way,” Martinez said. “Region 18 has been certifying teachers for 30 years.”He said TNTP has been working with Fouts and her team on the selection process for the certification program, which is why he was in town Monday.Martinez said there would be no drastic changes to the selection process. He added that they will try to make sure that they are strategic about the type of questions and the number of questions asked.“You can spend an hour or two hours having an interview with somebody, but we’re really trying get at the core of what are people’s interests. What are people’s beliefs and mindsets about student achievement, for example,” Martinez said.Another difference in this program and the Region 18 alternative certification program is that there will be a single start date every year.Fouts said they may lose a few potential candidates with the uniform start date at the beginning, but she thinks it will strengthen the pool of teachers.“In addition to the strong cohort, everyone would have had time in front of the students before they go to the classrooms, which was not happening in the past. …,” Martinez said.Fouts said Region 18 has a partnership with Midland College to provide housing to out-of-area students who need a place to stay.“If they come for summer training, they’ve opened up the dorms, and of course, there’s a fee that’s payable to them. It’s pretty reasonable in comparison to trying to stay in this area,” she said.More Information Southern Style Potato SaladSlap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash CasseroleSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay 1 of 4 Cindy Fouts, Coordinator of Certification Services at Education Service Center Region 18, talks about an upcoming new teacher certification program that will be starting soon.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Champion® Athleticwear Announces a Multi-Year Collaboration with the G.O.A.T. Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Pinterestcenter_img Facebook TAGS  Facebook WINSTON SALEM, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 24, 2021– Champion Athleticwear, makers of authentic athletic apparel since 1919, and Authentic Brands Group (ABG), a global brand development company today announced a multi-year collaboration for the Muhammad Ali brand. Through the partnership, Muhammad Ali will be the muse for a comprehensive, global campaign that will include integration across the Champion platforms and a series of product collections and limited edition drops. Champion will utilize Muhammad Ali’s iconic imagery, quotes, and his six core principles that fueled his journey. “Champions are defined by how they carry themselves in sports and beyond,” said David Robertson, Director of Champion Global Brand Marketing. “Muhammad Ali’s legacy and Champion share a common foundation of authenticity, confidence and inclusivity. We are incredibly excited to see how consumers react to this new collaboration and interpret how we’ve incorporated designs that reflect self-expression to help them feel comfortable, confident and ready to take on any challenge.” As “The People’s Champion,” Muhammad Ali was the ultimate personification of what it means to be a champion – not for what he did inside the ring but for what was inside of him. The first drop of the Champion X Muhammad Ali collection is based on Ali’s six core principles: confidence, conviction, dedication, giving, respect and spirituality. Champion wants to inspire everyone using these core principles to feel strength from within and to be empowered to start a movement of staying true to oneself, on and off the field. The partnership kicks off with the launch of the Champion X Muhammad Ali Collection, which evokes Ali’s spirit, celebrates living like a champion, and is an embodiment of sportsmanship. Ali’s core principles are reflected throughout the collection in the apparel designs, which feature iconic images of Muhammad Ali and some of his most famous quotes. The collection spans sizes XS – 2XL and will include Reverse Weave® hoodies, crewnecks and graphic t-shirts in a red, white, gold and black color scheme and a Hyped X Wash. The Special Edition Men’s Reverse Weave Hyped X Wash is a tie dye design, with each hoodie being one-of-a-kind and hand dyed by local Los Angeles artisans. Each hoodie is pre-washed for broken-in softness and has graphics including a photo-realistic, archival Ali image on the sleeve, and an elevated felt and satin The Greatest applique. The collection is rounded out with a limited-edition pin set available as an exclusive gift with purchase while supplies last in select Champion retail stores, that celebrates Ali with iconic images and words that commemorate his journey to greatness. Future collections and drops will be announced in the months to follow. “The Greatest of All Time and Champion are a natural fit for a partnership, and we are really proud of the Champion X Muhammad Ali collection that drops today,” said Marc Rosen, President, Entertainment, ABG, which in conjunction with Lonnie Ali as trustee of the Muhammad Ali Family Trust (MAFT) owns Muhammad Ali Enterprises. “To quote Ali himself, ‘Champions aren’t made in gyms, Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.’ This partnership will honor that sentiment and we are excited for it to kick off.” To shop the Champion X Muhammad Ali collection, visit Champion.com, Champion Retail stores, Social Status or RSVP Gallery beginning today. Retailing between $40 and $125, the items are the first of three collection drops with Muhammad Ali in 2021, with the second and third drops slated for later this year and more collections planned for 2022.

Human Society sponsors spay/neuter clinic

The first $50 for the procedure will be paid by the HSPC to participating veterinarians in Pike County. “That meant not being able to have the spay/neuter clinic but because of the generosity of a wonderful animal lover, the clinic is now open,” she said.“Now, hopefully, other animal lovers will do their part in having the animals spayed/neutered,” Brockmann said. “The clinic makes the procedures more affordable and we encourage everyone to take advantage of this money-saving opportunity to help reduce the number of unwanted and unloved animals in Pike County. Let’s keep them out of the shelter, off the streets and from being abused. Additionally, animals that are altered tend to lead healthier and longer lives and that is a bonus for pet parents.” Champions: Trojans heading back to NCAA Tournament The Trojans are heading back to the NCAA Tournament after knocking off Louisiana 73-63 in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament… read more Skip The participating veterinarians are: Dr. Steve Barron/Southern Animal Hospital & Pet Resort; Drs. Robert and Douglas Hawkins/Troy Animal Clinic; Dr. Lawrence Johnston/Pike Animal Hospital; Dr. W. J. Maddox/Trojan Animal Clinic; and Drs. Christine Simmer and Jack Jones/Jones Animal Clinic.“The spay/neuter clinic would not be possible except for the extremely generous, anonymous donation of $15,000,” Brockmann said. “Last summer, because of the pandemic, the Humane Society of Pike County was not able to sponsor its annual Pet Photo Contest nor publish a calendar from that contest. Both are fundraisers that support the spay/neuter clinic. Selling ads for the calendar throughout the county would not have been safe, from a medical standpoint. Also, it would have been difficult, financially, for some of our businesses to take ads and the ads pay for the calendar.”Brockmann said the decision to cancel the fun and fundraising projects was a difficult one.
