Ireland v Argentina: Schmidt backs inexperience

first_img“James Coughlan has decided to go to Pau though he was a player we were interested in, but now perhaps Jordi Murphy and Robin Copeland are the future alongside Jamie Heaslip and Peter O’Mahony.”Tried & tested: Murray (above) will link up with Sexton to face ArgentinaWith eight changes in the team since Ireland’s final game of the Six Nations in Paris, and just two training sessions under their belts so far in Argentina, Schmidt is glad to be able to rely on consistency at half-back, where Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton will start. Ireland’s player of the year, Andrew Trimble, starts on the right wing, linking up with Simon Zebo, who wins his first cap under Schmidt, and Felix Jones at full-back.Jack McGrath starts in the berth vacated by Cian Healy, alongside mainstays Rory Best and Mike Ross in the front row, and Iain Henderson partners captain Paul O’Connell in the second row. Schmidt said: “It’s ideal for Iain to play alongside the master, and it gives Toner a breather after he played 80 minutes on Saturday.”Winging in: Trimble (above), Kearney, Heaslip and Reddan toured Argentina in 2007The team have faced the challenge of having to travel up to 55 minutes from their hotel in Buenos Aires for each training session so far, though they were given a warm welcome from green-shirted fans at the Hurling Club earlier this week. The team has now landed safely in the northern province of Chaco, and will have their final run around during the captain’s run at the stadium tomorrow.Schmidt continued: “I’m never confident, but always hopeful. At this stage we just hope the combinations are going to work, and we’ve worked hard to make this more likely.”Ireland XV to face Argentina: Felix Jones; Andrew Trimble, Darren Cave, Luke Marshall, Simon Zebo; Jonny Sexton, Conor Murray; Jack McGrath, Rory Best, Mike Ross, Iain Henderson, Paul O’Connell (capt), Robbie Diack, Chris Henry, Jordi Murphy.Reps: Damien Varley, Dave Kilcoyne, Rodney Ah You, Devin Toner, Jamie Heaslip, Kieran Marmion, Ian Madigan, Fergus McFadden. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS said: “I’m looking for Darren to continue being the clever player he is. His passing game has improved and that gives us the scope to play. He’s intelligent with the lines he runs, and he’s a smart defender and creator of play. He’s perhaps not the same finisher that Brian was, but we’re not trying to replace that exactly.”Continuity: Henry filled the No 7 jersey during the Six NationsSchmidt has also picked a brand new back row. South African Robbie Diack will make his Ireland debut at blindside, and he’s partnered by Ulster team-mate Chris Henry (openside), who performed well during the Six Nations, and Leinster’s Jordi Murphy at No 8.“Diack will offer value in the lineout,” said Schmidt. “He’s a very good lineout player, and with his workrate we’re hoping he will give us an edge in the back end of the game.“Thunder storms are forecast, but even so we have to make our set piece as good as we can make it. Jordi Murphy is very dynamic, and we hope he’ll have a few opportunities off the back of the scrum, while giving Jamie Heaslip the chance to recover a bit (from last weekend). Joe Schmidt has selected an inexperienced side to play Argentina on Saturday, in the first of a two-Test tour. Find out more about the team below… IRELAND have never won a Test match in Argentina, but that hasn’t stopped Joe Schmidt from resting many of Leinster’s RaboDirect Pro12 finalists and selecting an inexperienced side to face Argentina on Saturday. There are smatterings of old heads in the side who will play in the Resistencia’s first international at the Estadio Centenario, and Schmidt hopes they will help build on the visitors’ 8-5 head-to-head win ratio.The biggest talking point of this tour was always going to surround the man auditioning in the No 13 jersey, now that Brian O’Driscoll has retired. Several contenders have been taken out of the equation this time around, namely Tommy Bowe and Robbie Henshaw, both injured, Keith Earls, who came down with a bout of gasterointeritis the day the team was due to fly, and Jared Payne, who is not yet Ireland-qualified though many see him providing a stop-gap for next year’s World Cup. Darren Cave will win his sixth cap at outside centre, alongside Luke Marshall, and though this partnership is untested at Test level the pairing have impressed at their province, Ulster, this season. Contender: Cave has been picked to start at No 13 on Saturday.

30 Minutes with… Elliot Daly

first_img On the ball: Wasps’ Elliot Daly made his England debut this year. Photo: Getty Images TAGS: Wasps What superpower would you like to have? To fly. It’d just be easier. How are you getting home? Flying. The first place I’d go is somewhere hot.Who would be your three dream dinner party guests? Will Ferrell again. Brian O’Driscoll because he’s a childhood hero – I met him after the Leinster game. And Beyoncé.What’s your guilty pleasure? There are so many. I’m going chocolate.What’s your go-to chocolate bar?I’ll say a Mars bar. It’s got everything I need – caramel, nougat and chocolate.Buzzing Wasps: James Haskell, Elliot Daly and Joe Launchbury with the Six Nations trophy. Photo: Getty ImagesDo you have any hidden talents? I can juggle pretty well. My brother taught me and it’s one of those skills you don’t forget. I can’t juggle more than three balls but I think I could juggle three rugby balls.What would be your Mastermind specialist subject? Will Ferrell movies.How would you like to be remembered? Who are the jokers in the Wasps squad? James Haskell throws banter out there and sees what will stick – one in five are funny. I’d say I’m up there with four out of five.Can you tell us about any practical jokes? It’s generally jumping out and scaring people. Sam Jones and Phil Swainston are my targets as their faces are so good when you jump out.What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch? I once got a pint poured on me at Gloucester. I’d tried to score a try and slid smack into the barriers. First, one pint went past me, then another guy threw his pint on me. I didn’t laugh then, but it’s quite funny looking back.I salute you: Actor Will Ferrell has made lots of films Daly likes. Photo: Getty ImagesWho’d you like to be stuck in a lift with? Will Ferrell. I’m a big fan. I’ve seen all his films about five times! Anchorman is probably my favourite.Do you have any phobias? I’m okay with heights unless there’s a glass floor, but I don’t like roller coasters. I went on the fastest one in the world (Formula Rossa) when Wasps played Quins in Abu Dhabi – I don’t know why – and I closed my eyes the whole way through and hated every minute.What about bugbears? Cold weather. I know – I’m in the wrong profession! I hate it when it’s that cold you have to wrap up really warm but if you go into any shop, you have to take it all off.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby? I’m involved in Return2Play – a concussion management system for schools and clubs. I’ve been going to schools to explain how to get back playing safely after concussion. Hopefully I’ll carry that on after rugby. Someone at Whitgift came up with the idea and asked me to get involved.Fair hair: Sam Jones. Photo: Getty ImagesIf you could be one of your team-mates, who would it be? Sam Jones – he’s very, very clever and has unbelievably good hair. It would be good to go around his mind. Edd Shervington would be the complete opposite. I don’t know what goes through his mind so that would be interesting too. Both would be short-term swaps, though, then I’d go back to my life. Wasps and England centre Elliot Daly talks pints, pranks and party guests As someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously, funny and energetic.This article appeared in the April 2016 edition of Rugby World.

State Awards Over $1M for Water Quality Improvement Projects

first_imgLaPorte CountyNone$47,000 Home Indiana Agriculture News State Awards Over $1M for Water Quality Improvement Projects Vanderburgh CountyGibson, Pike, Posey and Warrick counties$10,000 Facebook Twitter The State Soil Conservation Board (SSCB) awarded more than $1 million to 32 Soil and Water Conservation Districts for projects designed to improve water quality across the state. This funding is part of the Clean Water Indiana (CWI) grant program, which is administered by the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.“This year alone, Clean Water Indiana has supported 373 conservation projects and prevented more than 63 million pounds of sediment from entering our waterways,” said Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development. “These grants are critical to shoring up the work being done by Indiana’s conservation districts and provide opportunities for farmers that otherwise would not exist.”The CWI program, funded mainly by the state’s cigarette tax revenue, was designed to support Indiana’s conservation districts, as they work to reduce non-point sources of water pollution. While the projects vary depending on the needs of each district, some examples include promoting conservation, purchasing better equipment and providing technical assistance, education and training in the community.Districts were also encouraged to collaborate with neighboring counties and many will use this funding to leverage additional resources from outside organizations or cost-share programs.“Encouraging conservation districts to work together is a fundamental part of this program,” said Bruce Kettler, ISDA Director. “It builds synergy and allows them to tackle some of the challenges that extend past county lines.”Robert Woodling, SSCB Chairman, believes this funding is crucial to supporting the voluntary conservation efforts of farmers.“Clean Water Indiana enables farmers and communities to adopt conservation as part of their strategy,” Woodling said. “The State Soil Conservation Board is pleased to be able to provide this support and looks forward to the day we can do much more.”The following list includes the CWI grants that were awarded for 2018.

SGA pushes to reduce stigma around mental health

first_imgLinkedin Twitter printThrough intentional conversations and a peer training workshop this Monday through Wednesday, Student Government Association (SGA) representatives and faculty are encouraging students to embrace mental health issues and reduce the stigma around seeking help.“We want to create a safety net where the community understands the warning signs clued into mental health and are willing to reach out to those around them to ask them how they are doing,” said Brad Stewart, associate director for wellness education. One in four college students is affected by mental illness and suicide is the second leading cause of death on college campuses, according to a study published in the Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, but many students, faculty and staff are hesitant to talk about their mental health.On Monday, SGA will advocate for men’s mental health, followed by a push to start conversations among students Tuesday and a workshop featuring a student panel Wednesday.Infographic courtesy of TCU SGA.At the workshop, several students will discuss their personal mental health stories and create a forum for students to ask questions and learn from their experiences, SGA director of mental health Jacque Lenarz said.Depression, relationship issues and anxiety are the most common mental health issues facing TCU students, according to Dr. Kristen Harris-McDonald, psychologist at the TCU Counseling and Mental Health Center.By age 25, 75 percent of all chronic mental illnesses has begun, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Infographic courtesy of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.However, some students, faculty and staff feel a stigma associated with receiving help. “Students like to pretend they have it all together and can handle everything by themselves,” said sophomore finance major Olivia Chambers. “Dependence is almost seen as a weakness.”The TCU Counseling and Mental Health Center encourages students to view mental health and physical health in a similar way. “If you broke your leg, you would visit a physician and allow the leg to be treated so it could heal,” Harris-McDonald said. “Diseases of the brain are no different.”However, sophomore Neeley School of Business SGA representative Ryan Chandler recognizes the stigma, especially among men. “Men in our society are expected to not show their emotions and to man up, as we’ve heard growing up,” Chandler said. “Be a man, don’t cry. We have this repetition of suppressing our emotions, which is dangerous because it bottles up and then you burst.”Men are three times more likely to commit suicide than women, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Therefore, Monday is devoted to opening conversations about men’s mental health. SGA representatives Ryan Chandler and Katie Kovarik promoting Mental Health Awareness Week in November 2018. Photo courtesy of Ethan Mito.This is an issue that hits close to home for the men of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity after the death of sophomore Andrew Walker last semester and they are partnering with SGA in distributing cookies, stickers and t-shirts to promote conversations about mental health.“Anything to help people get out of the darkness, anything we can do to live for him is what we are going to do,” Chandler said. “I think we can use tragedies like this to make a positive change.”Leaders across campus will be using their voices and tabling materials to make a change and leave an impact in shaping the culture around mental health. “Cookies are not going to save the world, but if one of these turns into one conversation that truly does save someone, then it is worth every penny of our efforts,” said SGA president Abbey Widick.

Toronto-based Tajik blogger released from prison after 36 days

The authorities should lift all restrictions on his movements and drop the charges against him, RWB said.Arrested on 16 June in Khorog, the capital of the autonomous southeastern province of Gorno-Badakhshan, Sodiqov was taken to Dushanbe, the capital, and was held for a total of 36 days on charges of spying and high treason.“It is a relief to know that Sodiqov is with his family but it is still too soon to relax,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “He has suffered a great deal because of the Tajik government’s security paranoia. Justice will only be done when he is cleared of all suspicion and recovers full freedom of movement.”On his release from prison, Sodiqov said he was fine and delighted to be reunited with his family. He also said he was treated reasonably.A resident of Toronto since 2012, Sodiqov comments on Tajik current affairs on his blog and the GlobalVoices platform. He went to Khorog under a conflict management and resolution programme run by Britain’s Exeter University because the city was the scene of riots in July 2012 and May 2014.He was arrested at the end of an interview with local opposition leader Alim Cherzamonov.Tajikistan is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
