Rugby World Cup 2011: Italy’s Coach – Nick Mallet

Yet the third of those Six Nations triumphs will ensure Mallett’s place in Italian folklore – the 22-21 defeat of reigning Grand Slam champions France in Rome in March. It was a victory built on bloody-mindedness and self-belief, two traits that in the past ten years have hardly characterised Italian rugby.Yet Mallett’s reward for beating France was to be told by the Italian federation that his services won’t be required once his contract expires at the end of the World Cup. The powers-that-be feel he’s taken the side as far as he can during his four-year tenure; a fresh approach is needed and Perpignan’s Jacques Brunel will take over, so it’s arrivederci as far as Mallett is concerned – regardless of how the Azzurri perform in New Zealand.It’s a decision one suspects won’t sit well with the players, certainly not captain Sergio Parisse, who said of Mallett in the aftermath of the French success: “I want to dedicate this victory to him… he’s the only coach who believed in us.” Mallett has a habit of instilling self-belief in his players, no surprise since he’s not short of the stuff himself.Born 54 years ago above the music room at Haileybury College in England, Mallett was still in nappies when his family emigrated to Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) where his father took up a teaching appointment. Seven years later the Malletts moved to South Africa and he considers himself a native of that land.Mallett returned to England in the 1970s to read history at Oxford University – and to escape the apartheid policy of the South African government – and won a double blue in rugby and  cricket. In 1984 he also earned two Springbok caps at No 8, but it’s as a coach that Mallett has touched greatness in the rugby world.Having started out with Boland, a provincial side in South Africa, Mallett became the assistant Springboks coach in 1996 and the following year took on the top job. In the next three years he transformed the South Africa side from an unimaginative and predictable outfit to one that was able to mix flair with ferocity. Between August 1997 and December 1998 the Springboks won 17 matches on the bounce, a winning streak to equal that of the All Blacks of the late 1960s.Despite his record of 27 wins in 38 Tests – a 71% success rate that is surpassed in Springboks history only by Kitch Christie – Mallett resigned in 2000 after comments he madeabout exorbitant ticket prices caused a falling-out with the South African board.For the next four years he coached Stade Français, taking them to the 2001 Heineken Cup final and bringing the French title to Paris twice. He returned to the Test arena in 2007, taking over from Pierre Berbizier to become Italy’s coach in the aftermath of the World Cup. At the time Mallett said: “Trying to make Italy competitive and hopefully successful is as big a challenge as I’ve ever had as a coach.” NORTHAMPTON, ENGLAND – JUNE 04: Nick Mallett the coach of the senior Italian team looks on during the Churchill Cup between Italy and Canada at Franklin’s Gardens on June 4, 2011 in Northampton, England. (Photo by Mark Thompson/Getty Images) It was a challenge, but one he tackled with characteristic boldness. He began to ‘Italianise’ the squad, opting for home-grown players over Kiwis with a long-lost relative from Rovigo. Not all of Mallett’s ideas bore fruit – will Mauro Bergamasco ever forgive him for moving him from flanker to scrum-half against England in their 2009 Six Nations clash? – but he did indeed make Italy more competitive.There might have been only six wins in Mallett’s four-year tenure, but Italy became a tough nut to crack at home.In 2009 they held New Zealand to 20-6 in Milan. In the following year’s Six Nations England almost came a cropper, their 17-12 victory a foretaste of things to come for Ireland and Wales this year, as the Celtic teams scraped home 13-11 and 24-16 respectively.Against France, Italy went one better, showing they had the mindset to close out tight games. “It’s one of my proudest moments as a coach,” said Mallett. “But the joy has been about improving a side.”The pressure is off Mallett at this year’s World Cup in New Zealand. Whether they manage to progress beyond the pool stage or not, he’s heading for the door – but the man born above a music room will want to go out on a high note.This article appeared in Part 1 of our Rugby World Cup Supplement.To get a copy of the supplement contact [email protected] LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Rev. Harry Woolston Shipps, the eighth bishop of Georgia (1983-1994). He died the morning of Nov. 17 with his beloved wife, Louise, by his side. A Requiem Eucharist for Shipps will be held at the Collegiate Church of St. Paul the Apostle in Savannah, Georgia, on Nov. 22  at 11 a.m.The Rt. Rev. Scott Anson Benhase, the 10th bishop of Georgia, said of Shipps: “He was a man of great character and purpose, always ready to listen and offer good counsel. He was enormously helpful to me as one who had sat in the chair I now occupy. I could always count on him to give me perspective and needed humor on the Office of Bishop. He was a great leader of this diocese because he loved God’s people so much. He was quite simply and humbly, a disciple of Jesus.”Born on Jan. 28, 1926, in Bordentown, New Jersey,  Shipps attended Bordentown High School, Bordentown Military Institute, and the New York State Maritime Academy. On Jan. 9, 1946, he was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Maritime Service. He sailed on a troop ship, then with Grace Line Steamship Company, until called to active duty in the Navy during the Korean War. He was assigned to a Naval facility in Savannah, then to shipboard duty in the North Atlantic. He married the former Louise Huntington in 1953.Following his discharge from active duty, he attended the School of Theology, University of the South, as a postulant sponsored by the Collegiate Church of St. Paul the Apostle in Savannah. Ordained a deacon in 1958 and a priest in January 1959 by Bishop Albert Rhett Stuart, he was first assigned by Stuart as vicar of St. Mark’s Church in Albany. Later, he served parishes in Savannah and Augusta. Prior to his election as bishop, he served the diocese as diocesan secretary, editor of the diocesan newspaper, member of Diocesan Council, president of the Standing Committee, and as a deputy to three General Conventions. He was rector of St. Alban’s, Augusta and the dean of the Augusta Convocation when he was elected bishop coadjutor on Sept. 15, 1983, and consecrated on Jan. 6, 1984. He became the diocesan bishop in 1985 upon the retirement of Bishop Paul Reeves.Initially opposed to the ordination of women to the priesthood, primarily on the grounds that it would impair ecumenical relations with the Roman Catholic Church, Shipps early in his episcopate instituted a listening process to hear the diverse diocesan positions on the ordination of women, which the Episcopal Church permitted after its 1976 General Convention. Marking a change in his previous position, he initiated a process leading to women’s ordination in the diocese. Susan Harrison of Savannah was ordained to the diaconate in September 1985. Sonia Sullivan of Valdosta was later accepted as a postulant for the priesthood and ordained.Shipps and fellow ecumenist, the Most Rev. Raymond W. Lessard, Roman Catholic bishop of Savannah, held several joint clergy conferences with noted speakers from both churches. This led to a covenant between the two dioceses calling for a number of mutual ministries and responsibilities.During Shipps’ tenure as diocesan bishop, the Diocese of Georgia made headlines when a former Assembly of God minister, Stan White, led his entire congregation to join the Episcopal Church becoming the congregation of Christ the King in Valdosta.Under Shipps’ leadership, a capital campaign raised $1.1 million. These funds enabled the diocese through matching fund grants to double the number of lodge rooms at Honey Creek Conference Center, build church buildings for Atonement, Augusta; Holy Cross, Thomson; Trinity, Statesboro; St. Elizabeth’s, Richmond Hill; and Grace, Sandersville. Land was also purchased in Effingham County and Columbia County.In 1994 the diocese reported 17,197 baptized persons. Shipps’ reported in his convention address that year that the diocese had the second highest average Sunday attendance (relative to its baptized membership) of all the dioceses in the U.S. and that its stewardship average per household was also second highest in the Church.After his retirement as bishop of Georgia in 1995, Shipps served as assistant bishop of the Diocese of Dallas for four years.He and Louise, a gifted icon writer, artist, and teacher, have four children: Ruth Shipps, Susan Anderson (Daniel), Rebecca Eidson (Gary), and David Shipps (Sydney); seven grandchildren: Carol Lewis; Katie Lucas (Jordan), Spencer McGuire, Kristin Campbell (Richard), Joshua Anderson (Cami), Hunter Eidson, Abigail Shipps and David Shipps Jr.; and three great-grandchildren: Lucas Campbell, Riley Campbell and Oliver Lucas.Gifts in memory of Shipps should be made out to the Diocese of Georgia.

While Maff Apartment is situated on an attic floor in a town house looking out over the city, Maff Studio is an autonomous building in the smallest building block of the city fabric, the ground-level working-class house. Maff Studio was designed as a hotel suite without a hotel. The city around it, with its numerous different functions and attractions, provides the functions traditionally associated with the hotel service package. The service level and luxury in a hotel are the prime qualities and determinators of price for the suite. For Maff Studio, the prima qualities are the interior space and its close proximity the the city which provides all the additional services for its guests.

Villa in northern Aarhus, made of exclusive quality materials, with a unique level of detail and references to iconic architecture. Villa E is located in an undulating district of small, detached houses in northern Aarhus. The concept, materials, and level of detail are inspired by the iconic Aarhus University, which was also designed by C.F. Møller Architects, and today is in the Danish architectural canon. An example of the reference can be seen in the villa’s basic composition consisting of four simple saddle roof houses, which together form the framework of this family home. The main architectural approach unfolds in a larger main house, which has been ‘raised up’ onto three smaller buildings on two levels.Save this picture!© Julian WeyerSave this picture!Lower floor planSave this picture!© Julian WeyerCoherent whole. The house follows the sloping terrain of the plot; towards the road, the driveway leads down underneath the house to the integrated garage and basement. A distinctive and beautifully designed brick staircase leads up to the entrance. This opens into the villa’s main room, a large kitchen family room with a high and elegantly curved ceiling, finished with a large skylight that creates a fantastic light. From this room which brings the family together, there is direct access to four rooms for children and young people as well as a large window and access to the garden. The kitchen is partly built into a brick core that runs throughout the house and together with a window seat on the opposite side, form the sculptural elements in this central space.Save this picture!© Julian WeyerSteps from the kitchen provide access to the villa’s living room, which is located at garden level.

Rustic hand-painted bricks in shades of red are used as façade and roof tiles, combined with the stone of surfaces, stairs, and the inner core. Oak features both the outside and inside. On the outside, it is used as framing for the garden sheds and gates. Inside, the oak gives a warm glow to the atmosphere in the villa and features again on window sills, doors, fixtures, panelled ceilings, and herringbone floors, and high-quality carpentry details are found throughout the interior.

The VAT ditty from Wakefield Cathedral

first_img The changes to VAT announced in the March 2012 Budget include a provision that will remove the zero rating of VAT on alterations to listed buildings.Wakefield Cathedral is just one building that will be affected if this is implemented.Written and performed by Pamela Greener, this song asks the Chancellor to reconsider this proposal to help the Cathedral ensure that it can continue its restoration work. It also invites the public to sign a petition to this effect:http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/32056This a very good combination of humour, song, video and timeliness in getting across a core fundraising message. Sometimes, it seems, as with the current #giveitbackgeorge campaign, charities have to campaign simply to hold on to what money they have got, let alone raise new income.

RSF joins call to release prominent rights defender Ahmed Mansoor

first_img RSF dénonce la répression des autorités émiraties envers les rares voix libres Organisation April 20, 2017 RSF joins call to release prominent rights defender Ahmed Mansoor Help by sharing this information Follow the news on United Arab Emirates capture d’écran / Film Portrait – Ahmed Mansoor – Martin Ennals Award Laureate 2015 RSF_en Mansoor, who received the prestigious Martin Ennals Award for Human Rights Defenders in 2015, has been in detention since March 20, 2017 facing speech-related charges that include using social media websites to “publish false information that harms national unity.” On March 28, a group of United Nations (UN) human rights experts called on the UAE government to release him immediately, describing his arrest as “a direct attack on the legitimate work of human rights defenders in the UAE.”“Ahmed Mansoor has an unimpeachable record as a defender of rights and freedoms, and every day he remains in prison will constitute a black mark on the UAE’s human rights record,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch. Informed sources have told rights groups that about a dozen security officers arrested Mansoor at his home in Ajman in the pre-dawn hours of March 20. They conducted an extensive search and took away all of the family’s mobile phones and laptops, including those belonging to his young children. His family had no information on his whereabouts until authorities issued an official statement on March 29, saying he was in detention in the Central Prison in Abu Dhabi. The signatories understand that Mansoor’s family have been allowed only one short supervised visit with him which took place two weeks after his arrest on April 3, when authorities moved him from where he was being held, believed to be a detention facility adjacent to Al-Wathba Prison, to a prosecutor’s office in Abu Dhabi. Informed sources told rights groups that Mansoor is being held in solitary confinement and has not spoken to a lawyer. The UAE’s official news agency, WAM, said on March 20 that Mansoor had been arrested on the orders of the Public Prosecution for Cybercrimes and detained pending further investigation. It said that he is accused of using social media websites to: “publish false information and rumors;” “promote [a] sectarian and hate-incited agenda;” and “publish false and misleading information that harm national unity and social harmony and damage the country’s reputation.” The statement classified these as “cybercrimes,” indicating that the charges against him may be based on alleged violations of the UAE’s repressive 2012 cybercrime law, which authorities have used to imprison numerous activists and which provides for long prison sentences and severe financial penalties. In the weeks leading up to his arrest, Mansoor had called for the release of Osama al-Najjar, who remains in prison, despite having completed a three-year prison sentence on charges related to his peaceful activities on Twitter. Mansoor had also criticized the prosecution of Dr. Nasser bin-Ghaith, a prominent academic and economist, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison on March 29, for charges that included speech-related offenses, including peaceful criticism of the UAE and Egyptian authorities. Mansoor had also used his Twitter account to draw attention to human rights violations across the region, including in Egypt and those committed by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. He had also signed a joint letter with other activists in the region calling on leaders at the Arab Summit in Jordan at the end of March to release political prisoners in their countries. “Ahmed has worked tirelessly, at great personal cost to himself, to advocate for human rights in the UAE and the wider region. He should be immediately released and the authorities should end their harassment of him once and for all,” said Lynn Maalouf, Deputy Director for Research at Amnesty International’s Beirut Regional office. The UN special rapporteurs on human rights defenders, on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of expression and opinion, and on freedom of peaceful assembly and association, along with the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, said in their March 28 statement that Mansoor’s “outstanding work in the protection of human rights and the advancement of democracy, as well as his transparent collaboration with UN mechanisms, is of great value not only for the UAE but for the whole region.”The UN experts said they feared that his arrest “may constitute an act of reprisal for his engagement with UN human rights mechanisms, for the views he expressed on social media, including Twitter, as well as for being an active member of organizations such as the Gulf Centre for Human Rights, and an active supporter of others, including Human Rights Watch.”“Ahmed’s arrest and detention is extremely alarming because it represents a major assault on human rights defenders in the UAE and signals all-out repression in the country,” said Khalid Ibrahim, Executive Director of the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR). Mansoor is a member of GCHR’s Advisory Board. On March 29, the UAE authorities responded directly to the UN experts’ statement, disputing the allegation that Mansoor’s detention was arbitrary, and stating that Mansoor “has the freedom to hire a lawyer and that his family has full access to the place of confinement and is allowed to visit him.” In 2015, the UN Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, who visited the UAE in 2014, expressed concern that lawyers who take up cases related to state security “have been harassed, threatened and had pressure exerted on them,” and that “impunity surrounding such breaches of the independence of the legal profession has had a chilling effect on lawyers,” making it difficult for defendants in the UAE to secure a lawyer of their choice.UAE authorities have harassed and persecuted Mansoor for more than six years. In November 2011, the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi sentenced Mansoor to three years in prison for insulting the country’s top officials in a trial marred by serious legal and procedural flaws. The UAE president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, pardoned Mansoor on November 28, 2011, but authorities never returned his passport, imposing a de facto travel ban. He has also experienced physical assaults, death threats, government surveillance, and a sophisticated spyware attack. People in the UAE who speak about human rights abuses are at serious risk of arbitrary detention, imprisonment, and torture, and many are serving long prison terms or have felt compelled to leave the country. To the knowledge of the signatories, Mansoor was the last remaining human rights defender in the UAE who had been able to criticize the authorities publicly. The authorities should release Mansoor immediately, since the charges against him relate to his human rights work and his criticism of the authorities, the signatories said. They should give him immediate and regular access to his family and a lawyer of his choosing, and end the harassment of rights defenders and critics of the authorities.
