Worcester Warriors share incredible footage of Michael Fatialofa returning to training

first_imgTuesday Jun 16, 2020 Worcester Warriors share incredible footage of Michael Fatialofa returning to training Worcester Warriors players returned to training on Monday for the first time in three months due to the enforced lockdown period caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Today they released a video showing a welcome arrival at Sixways, a man that many thought would not walk again.ADVERTISEMENTAll Premiership and Championship clubs are able to start Stage 1 of the Elite Sport Return to Training Guidance, which allows for individual conditioning – or groups of individual conditioning – in an environment that that follows strict social distancing at all times.At Sixways there is a new thermal screening system with the most advanced testing in the Premiership, and that was also in use for the first time yesterday. Players training in small groups with staggered starts in both the gym and on the pitch.All the players appeared to be happy to be back, and there was an added bonus when Michael Fatialofa paid them a visit, casually strolling over the high performance centre in scenes that most would never have imagined possible.Fatialofa spent six months in hospital after suffering a C4 vertebrae fracture and spinal contusion in January. He is now walking again.Head of medical Ryan Kehoe said recently: “Following a handover from the rehabilitation team at the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital, we will look to continue to build on the amazing work they have done with Michael.ADVERTISEMENT“His rehabilitation at this stage will focus on improving his general muscular strength, coordination and mobility.”WATCH: ‘They said I was a quadriplegic and might never walk again’ – Fatialofa and his girlfriend on his miracle progressWarriors prop Ethan Waller elaborated on the Coronavirus safety measure that are in place.“It’s really good to come back and see the boys, the energy was great. It’s nice to train in a proper environment instead of in my shed,” he said.“The training is similar to a normal pre-season except it’s a bit more condensed and intense because we have time slots that we have to get in and out. The measures the club have put in place make you feel really safe coming back into the club.“That was one of the big concerns for a lot of people because rugby is a contact sport. But Gené Willis, our Head of Stadium Operations and our Managing Director Peter Kelly and the Warriors staff have all done an outstanding job in getting this place as safe as it can be. You are probably a lot safer training here than you are going to the shops.ADVERTISEMENT“The thermal screening technology is another aspect which makes you feel safe coming in. Safety is paramount. You don’t want to be coming here risking yourself and possibly bringing something back to your family and loved ones. We’ve got that and also a symptom checker so that if anything is wrong we go straight back home,” he explained.Premiership Rugby has set a target date of August 15 for the resumption of the 2019/20 season. The structure for the remainder of the 2019-20 season – for which the original date for the Premiership final was June 20 – will be released in due course.

TCU alumni teach students about personal branding for workforce

first_imgWhite supremacy posters on TCU’s campus under investigation Previous articleFrog It Forward partners with KIND SnacksNext articleThe Skiff: November 5, 2015 Emily Laff RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU tells Greeks: No Hazing Emily Laffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-laff/ printStudents were challenged to ‘brand themselves’ and think about their public perception Tuesday evening.The women’s organization STARS, Sisters Transcending and Reaching Success, brought in TCU alumni to discuss the power behind knowing oneself and knowing how to capitalize on that.STARS president Jasmine Tucker said the mission of the event was to inspire, which is also the main goal of STARS.“This organization is about supporting women and youth in need and helping them succeed,” said Tucker.Tucker said in order to fulfill that mission, she wanted speakers to talk to students about how to present themselves after they graduate.Racquel McBay, a 2014 TCU graduate, spoke at the event. McBay works in Dallas in the non-profit management field.“A brand is a reason to choose,” said McBay.She also said the best way to brand yourself is to figure out what makes you unique.“There’s only one you,” McBay said. “Being yourself will lead you to the employment and opportunities you deserve.”McBay was one of two TCU graduates who spoke.Marquis Harris, who graduated in May, informed students as well. Harris serves as the Executive Pastor at The Crossroads Church in Fort Worth.Harris introduced the importance of branding by talking about his journey of redefining himself after he did not make the track team his first year at TCU.“I wanted to run but I knew it wasn’t going to happen that way,” said Harris, “I didn’t want to be a typical black guy that hid in the shadows at a predominantly white school.”Harris also talked about the importance of ‘branding’ in a way that redefines any preconceived notions people may have of you. For Harris, that preconceived notion was that he was an athlete.“For my brothers,” Harris said, “one of the premier questions I got asked every year was, ‘How did you get to TCU? Do you play football? Do you play basketball?’”Harris said that dressing in shorts and a T-shirt every day “communicated that he had no other way to be there unless he was running, throwing a football or dribbling on the court.”He also said one of the first steps in branding oneself is learning more about yourself as a person. He said it is important not to stay confined to a certain group.“You have the chance to access ample opportunities at this school, take advantage, branch out, study abroad, do a mission trip, don’t confine yourself to where you’re limited,” said Harris.Senior William Jenkins, an art and psychology double major, said Harris’ message gave him a new perspective.“It was nice to hear from people who have already graduated and [hear] their struggles and how they overcame them, and how branding yourself can prepare you for the future,” said Jenkins.The event also covered the importance of social media representation in the business world.Sophomore Danielle Sneed said she attended the event to better prepare herself for the future.“I think it’s important to know how to portray ourselves on social media especially when we are trying to get jobs,” said Sneed.Marquis Harris and Racquel McBay spoke to students about how they should represent themselves. Linkedin Students react to controversial speaker’s views on radical Islam TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin Students gathered in Reese-Jones Hall on Tuesday evening for the STARS event, “Brand Yourself.” Emily Laff is a senior journalism major (and die-hard Broncos fan) from Denver, Colorado. When she is not out reporting she is most likely at a Krispy Kreme drive-through or in an aisle at Barnes & Noble. Twitter Emily Laffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-laff/ ReddItcenter_img In addition, McBay said branding is about more than the individual – what you post on social media and how you act reflects not only on you, but on your other affiliations as well.“I represent myself and everything I’m a part of and affiliated with,” McBay said. “You’re a representation of something bigger than yourself.”At the end of the evening, Jareem Williams, TCU alumnus of 2012, spoke to the group of students about the importance of following one’s passion.Williams teaches at the P.L. Dunbar Young Men’s Leadership Academy. He said he found his own passion in teaching.Williams also said when it comes to branding oneself, that means finding what matters to you and letting that uniqueness guide you.“One of my favorite quotes is by Mahatma Ghandi,” said Willliams. “He said, ‘My life is my message.’ When people see you what do they see? What do you want them to see?”McBay shared what she wanted students to take away from the evening’s event as a whole.“The word ‘brand’ is so much more than a logo, ” McBay said. “The world is waiting for you-tap into it.” Emily Laffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-laff/ Emily Laffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-laff/ Facebook Facebook ReddIt Emily Laff TCU parking: No room on the asphalt + posts The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Twitter TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summerlast_img read more

Call for criminal defamation charges to be dropped against journalist

first_img Crackdown on reporters covering Luanda demonstration The Letter of Allegation can be read here. The Urgent Appeal can be read here. For more information please contact: Laetitia LiebertDirector, SHERPA Organisation Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is joining nine other NGOs in demanding the withdrawal of criminal defamation charges against Angolan journalist Rafael Marques de Morais, who is due to go on trial on 24 March.The special rapporteurs on freedom of expression and human rights defenders of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the United Nations are urged to support this call.The target of judicial persecution for years for denouncing human rights violations in Angola’s diamond mining industry, Marques was awarded the 2015 Index on Censorship Freedom of Expression Award for Journalism on 18 March in London. 20 March 2014 Cyber-attacks against Angolan news site and reporter Ann HarrisonProgramme Director, Writers in Prison Committee, PEN International Marques is to go on trial on 24 March 2015 on charges of defamation relating to his book, “Blood Diamonds: Corruption and Torture in Angola.” The book describes how Angolan military officials and private security companies committed human rights abuses against Angolan villagers in the course of diamond mining operations. It includes reports of 500 cases of torture and 100 killings. Days before his trial, Rafael was awarded the 2015 Index on Censorship Freedom of Expression Award for journalism. It is not the first time Marques has been targeted for the lawful exercise of his rights. The Angolan authorities appear to be using their criminal defamation laws to deter Marques from his critical human rights reporting. This is a violation of his right to freedom of expression. Given the serious irregularities that have already taken place in his case, there is no chance that Marques will receive a fair trial in Angola.

Spatial distribution of pCO2, ΔO2/Ar and dimethylsulfide (DMS)in polynya waters and the sea ice zone of the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica

first_imgWe report the first simultaneous measurements of surface water pCO2, biological oxygen saturation (ΔO2/Ar) and dimethylsulfide (DMS) concentrations in polynya waters and the sea ice zone of the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica. Across our survey region, we observed large spatial variability in surface water gas concentrations, tied to strong gradients in hydrography and phytoplankton biomass. Variability in sea surface temperature and salinity was attributed to the interacting effects of surface ocean circulation and heat fluxes, sea ice melt and the upwelling of relatively warm, saline and nutrient-rich modified circumpolar deep water. Phytoplankton biomass ranged from <1 μg L−1 to ∼40 μg L−1 chlorophyll a (Chl a), with the highest values observed in regions of shallow mixed layer depths. Phytoplankton assemblages were dominated by the colonial haptophyte Phaeocystis antarctica at most sampling stations, with lesser abundances of diatoms found throughout the polynya and sea ice zone. Cryptophytes were abundant at a few stations along the continental shelf break. Across the open polynya waters and sea ice zone, ΔO2/Ar ranged from ∼−40% to 40% (mean 8.6%), pCO2 ranged from 80 to 530 μatm (mean 250 μatm) and DMS concentrations varied from <1 nM to ∼350 nM. Strong gradients in gas concentrations were observed over short (i.e. <10 km) spatial scales. The distribution of pCO2 and ΔO2/Ar across our survey transects reflected the balance between deep water entrainment and net community production, with a significant imprint of air–sea exchange. Chl a concentrations were significantly correlated to both pCO2 and ΔO2/Ar, and the slope of the ΔO2/Ar vs. pCO2 relationship was consistent with photosynthetic stoichiometry (∼1.25 mol O2 evolved per mol DIC removed). DMS and Chl a concentrations were also correlated in surface waters, but the spatial distribution of DMS was often uncoupled from pCO2 and ΔO2/Ar, likely due to complex microbial cycling processes. Sea surface temperature and salinity were related to surface gas concentrations through their effects on mixed layer depth and as tracers of upwelling. During the time of our cruise, the Amundsen Sea acted as an overall net sink for CO2 (mean sea–air flux=−15.9 mmol m−2 d−1) and a DMS source (mean sea–air flux=23.1 μmol m−2 d−1). Sea–air CO2 and DMS fluxes were more than 2-fold higher in open polynya waters relative to the overall cruise means. Simple calculations suggest that the Amundsen Sea contributes ∼5% of total Southern Ocean CO2 fluxes, and ∼1% of DMS fluxes.last_img read more
