Tana Umaga helps Colin Charvis after huge Jerry Collins hit

first_imgThursday Aug 9, 2012 Tana Umaga helps Colin Charvis after huge Jerry Collins hit A few months ago young Motu Matu’u knocked out a player with a brutal hit, but made sure he helped him straight away. It was reminiscent of this famous incident almost ten years ago, which featured a huge tackle and some wonderful sportsmanship.Back in 2003, ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Australia, Wales had a summer tour down south which included a 55-3 walloping at the hands of the All Blacks.The moment that stood out in the game – aside from many great tries – was when Jerry Collins demolished opposite number Colin Charvis with a powerful hit that put the number eight in hospital. He suffered whiplash, and was reportedly checked on every two hours through the night.After the tackle took place, play continued but Tana Umaga, seeing the seriousness of Charvis’ condition, went to his aid to clear his breathing passage, and placed him in the recovery position.“When I got knocked out Tana was brilliant – I was unconscious but he rolled me over and ensured I didn’t swallow my gum-shield,” Charvis said when recalling the incident later.Umaga’s act of concern for his fellow player resulted in him receiving an international fair play award, the Pierre de Coubertin medal, and was also acknowledged by the Welsh Rugby Union.“It shows you there are things in life that are bigger than just a game,” said Martyn Williams.“Worse things can happen in life than defeat. You still wake up the next morning and get on with life. It was a great thing for Tana to do.”Collins, who made the huge hit, said: “I was a bit worried when he went down. I could hear something go crack. Years later he downplayed the incident though, saying that the media makes too much of that tackle.“Colin is a nice bloke and he’s a lot bigger than me, so I don’t want to say anything about it! In the loose forwards people get hit like that all the time and it might happen to me anytime.”You can view the infamous tackle below, however at the time the television producers didn’t realise what Umaga was doing, so there was no clear footage of it on the live feedADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The setting for this project is the existing garden of a house that needed to be inhabited by a new structure, a tectonic roof constructed with wooden beams, with its structural system exposed to give shade and house some services. How to avoid interrupting the continuity of the garden? How to colonize it without impeding its entire visibility? The operation is simple, to build a porch measuring approximately 200 m2, with only six supports to release the view, achieving long spans. Services do not touch the roof as in the architecture of Mies, to allow better visual continuity of the landscape.

Two scoring runs where the Frogs outscored Idaho by double-digits separated the two squads: TCU outscored Idaho 13-0 at one point in the first quarter and 12-0 at another point in the second quarter. With the hot shooting, TCU took a 47-36 lead into the halftime break.Idaho did not go down quietly as the Vandals stormed back to trail by just four points in the third quarter during a sluggish offensive drought by the Horned Frogs. Some key late baskets from senior guard Toree Thompson and junior forward Jordan Moore halted the run and ensured the victory for the Frogs.A season-best free throw percentage by the Horned Frogs left no doubt. The Frogs converted on 88 percent of their free throws, including a perfect 10-10 by junior forward Amy Okonkwo.Okonkwo also claimed tournament MVP honors with 22 points and 11 rebounds in the final game. Moore added 20 points on 90 percent shooting from the floor and Thompson was named to the all-tournament team with her 14 points.TCU also welcomed a familiar face back to the line-up. Sophomore Kianna Ray who missed the first five games of the season due to injury provided an instant spark off the bench. Ray knocked-down a three-pointer on her first possession and finished the night with eight points and seven assists.TCU will return to Schollmaier Arena Friday after a six-day break and face the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Tip-off is scheduled for 12:00 p.m.last_img read more

Each of the babies will receive a hat made by volunteers from across Southern California and as far as Lebanon.“We are so thrilled by the response from the knitting community and our local hospitals that we expect to more than double the number of babies and families that we reached last year,” said Dr. Ravi Dave, a UCLA Health cardiologist and immediate past president of the American Heart Association Los Angeles County Board of Directors. “With this small gift, we hope to inspire parents to cherish their health and to commit to helping their children grow healthy and strong hearts.”The American Heart Association (AHA) estimates there will be more than 4,000 newborn babies in February throughout Los Angeles County. Volunteer hat knitters have until the end of January to drop the hats off or send them to the AHA Los Angeles Division office, at 816 South Figueroa Street in Los Angeles.Other volunteers are needed to help package the little red hats for delivery on Friday, January 19, from 2 to 5 p.m., at the AHA Los Angeles office.Leticia Aguilar, Region President of Union Bank for Los Angeles and Central Coast, said volunteers have provided amazing support by knitting almost twice the number of hats this year.“We are so thankful for their participation and the ability to reach even more families with heart healthy messages,” Aguilar said. “This program is truly heart-warming. Who doesn’t love babies in little red hats? Although they are small, they send a powerful message that reminds us that heart health starts at birth. Wherever you are on your life’s path, it’s never too early or too late to think about your heart.”The Little Hats, Big Hearts program began in Chicago in 2014. The project has grown to include 660 hospitals in 40 states, handing out more than 100,000 hats. Aside from Huntington Hospital, about two dozen other Los Angeles County area hospitals taking part in the program.In addition to using red hats to raise awareness of heart disease and congenital heart defects, Little Hat, Big Hearts also drives awareness for the American Heart Association’s Support Network, an online forum for families affected by heart disease and stroke.For more information about Little Hats, Big Hearts, including knitting patterns, participating cities and other ways to support, visit www.heart.org/littlehatsbighearts.To participate as a volunteer, contact Taylor Tomczyszyn at [email protected] or (213) 291-7092.

Peter McVerry Trust Announces Major New Construction Programme

first_imgTwitter Email Facebook TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostPeter Mc Verry Trust PETER McVerry Trust, the national housing and homeless charity, has announced a major new construction programme of social housing units. It comes as the charity published its annual report for 2019.In Limerick, Peter McVerry Trust worked with 382 people in 2019 across its housing and homeless services and had 74 social housing units which it owned, leased, or managed in the county at the end of 2019.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Peter McVerry Trust’s housing delivering in Limerick was second only to Dublin. The charity focuses solely on housing delivery and development in Limerick and does not offer homeless hostels in an effort to avoid duplicating existing services.Peter McVerry Trust’s annual report shows that the charity was active across 21 local authorities at the end of 2019. The report also shows that the charity worked with 6,184 people across Ireland last year.The report also covers key areas of Peter McVerry Trust’s services, including its Housing First work across 11 counties, as well as the charity’s new second-level specialist Learning Centres in Dublin.Pat Doyle, CEO of Peter McVerry Trust, said “Last year was very busy for us, with many key developments within the organisation. Among those was the significant expansion of our Housing First work as we secured new contracts in Dublin, the Midlands, the Mid-East and the North East regions which will see us delivering 61% of the national Housing First programme.”“The launch of our annual report today ties in with our goal to grow and expand our Housing First work. The single biggest barrier facing the roll-out of Housing First is the lack of available one-bedroom homes across our cities and towns.“That is why we are trying to play a more active role in supplying those homes directly with funding from the local authorities and the Department of Housing.” he said.Construction PipelineNationally over the next 12 months, the charity will deliver over 210 social housing units via construction, leasing, re-use of empty buildings and acquisition. In Limerick, the charity is aiming to grow its housing delivery through a combination of leasing, acquisition and schemes like the repair and lease scheme which targets long term vacant homes.Construction projects will deliver new social housing units in locations including, Dublin, Limerick, and Kildare with over 70% of those units due to be one-bedroom apartments.“This pipeline of new homes will see us commence several construction projects over the next 12 months. Most of these new homes will be in Dublin, but we also have construction projects in counties Limerick and Kildare as well as smaller projects across a range of other counties.”“We want to ensure we create high-quality homes that are sustainable in both design and location. Our goal is to deliver several small scale projects, scattered across cities and large towns, to avoid large concentration in any one community.”The charity said it also expects 2020 to be its best year yet on housing delivery, as it ramps up social housing provision by reusing long term vacant units as social housing.

OHS revalidated as AVID National Demonstration School

first_imgECISD AVID.AVID. OHS revalidated as AVID National Demonstration School Previous articleOPD taking Citizen’s Police Academy applicationsNext articleSULLUM: E-cigarettes can be lifesavers admin By admin – February 1, 2018 Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp Facebookcenter_img Odessa High School leadership and students learned that they have been revalidated as an AVID National Demonstration School.The announcement was made in the OHS library after a visit by national AVID officials Tim Bias and Ellen Nickerson. Top district officials also were on hand.“I’m very pleased with the dedication and commitment by both the OHS AVID Site Team, leadership and the students in working to reach the highest honor of being an AVID National Demonstration School for three more years,” Ector County Independent School District AVID Director Dianne Mata said in an email. “It takes an entire team to make this happen. They certainly shined in all areas their instruction, systems in place, as well their leadership and culture of the school. I am very proud of their determination and hard work to continue being a model site for AVID.”AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college preparation program aimed at at-risk students. Bias and Nickerson reviewed the good points of the AVID program and what can be improved upon.AVID helps students with organizational skills, time management and note taking, among other things.Bias said the strategies at OHS are well used and the scheduling is student centered. He said the campus leadership at the campus and district level provides good support to the program.He added that he also was impressed with the culture and level of hospitality he and Nickerson experienced. Nickerson said they were greeted by mariachi music when they arrived Tuesday morning.With the revalidation, Texas state Director of AVID Patrick Briggs said OHS will remain an AVID national demonstration school for another three years.OHS AVID Coordinator Naomi Fuentes said AVID representatives look through student data and determine whether the campus should still hold the title of a national demonstration site.Fuentes said the designation is prestigious because there are few high schools in the country, especially the size of OHS, that have national demonstration site status.Fuentes said she was breathing a sigh of relief after the visit.“I love how the entire school came together to make this happen.
