Robbie’s Rugby Festival celebrates ten-year anniversary

first_imgFollowing a full day of pitch action, festivalgoers are invited to attend the FESTIBALL. Celebrations will include a drinks reception, dinner, dessert stations, numerous charitable activities, live music and photo booths, as well as an exciting line-up of entertainment. The tens tournament, played over four pitches, is the focal point of a packed day.Come on down: the matches take place across four pitches at Loughborough Grammar SchoolAnother key ingredient is Jake’s Round Robin, a six-team social tournament named after Jake McCarthy, an old boy of Loughborough GS pupil and Manchester Metropolitan University.In 2012 he suffered a seizure on holiday in Thailand and was found to have a brain tumour that, on 24 December that year, took his life. The past decade has seen a 16% rise in deaths from brain tumours in the UK and the Jake McCarthy Foundation raises awareness of the symptoms to ensure early diagnosis.Every year his friends enter a team in his memory and thus, in the true spirit of rugby, people are coming together and giving back to the game. Lending his support: Neil Back is an ambassador for the festival (Getty Images)The desire to raise funds and awareness for the charities is at the heart of Robbie’s Rugby Festival, and the bar has been set high.“We are immensely proud of the legacy Robbie’s Rugby Festival has and cannot thank our supporters enough,” says Georgie Fowle, co-founder of Addo Events who organise the festival. “Their generosity has enabled the festival to make a real difference to those affected by cancer. Yet despite the mighty figures raised to date, it is a mere drop in the ocean. Robbie’s Rugby Festival needs as many people as possible to join in the fight against cancer.“We look forward to welcoming familiar faces and newcomers alike as we hope to smash previous year’s figures and keep supporting our charities to continue their vital work.” Spirit of rugby: Robbie’s Rugby Festival has done much for charities combating cancer and brain tumours LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Nottingham Rugby are one of the many event sponsors and Neil Back, who started his senior career there before finding wider fame with Leicester and England, is an ambassador.“Events like this bring the rugby family together and there is something available for everyone,” says Back. “It started very small and now there are 30 teams. I live in Leicestershire and know members of both families involved. They raise money every year while having a great time.” Entry to the rugby is free (donations welcome) and tickets to the FESTIBALL are £60, with tables of eight, ten and 12 available, priced from £440. To book visit robbiesrugbyfestival.comLegacy: the names of Robbie Anderson and Jake McCarthy live on through the ten-year-old festival Over the past decade, the event has raised more than £61,400 for the two charities. Funds raised from the festival have helped the Jake McCarthy Foundation to fund the recruitment and three-year placement of a dedicated Senior Research Associate at the University of Plymouth.center_img Support from Robbie’s Rugby Festival has allowed the trust to purchase two vital pieces of equipment for the hospital’s ward 27: an ultrasound bladder scanner and a cannula scanner. Both reduce the trauma, stress and bruising for the patient while undergoing treatment. Anyone for Pimm’s? Supporters at Robbie’s Rugby Festival, which is going from strength to strengthIn addition to the Robbie Tens and Jake’s Round Robin, this year again features a ladies sevens tournament that was launched last year to much acclaim.Entrants for this year’s tens tournament include clubs such as Syston, Long Eaton, Melbourne, Derby, Leodienisans and Quorn.There are several invitation sides from universities and local schools, while one name to catch the eye is Team Mayne. They play in memory of Richard Mayne, who died on the Malaysian Airlines flight that was shot down in 2014. The team is based in Market Bosworth, where Richard was deputy head boy at Dixie Grammar School.While the players work up a sweat, spectators can spend time in the Rugby Village, which features a bar, physio tent, gin tent and hot tub among other attractions, or enjoy a refreshing Pimm’s in the Summer Garden.Thirsty work: a bar at the event that has raised more than £61,000 for charity over the past decade The event has become a permanent fixture of the summer calendar with rugby royalty including Neil Back, Sir Clive Woodward, Eddie Jones, Dan Carter, Christian Wade, Warren Gatland, Sam Warburton, Richie McCaw, Sonny Bill Williams and Billy Twelvetrees showing their support over the years. Men of action: Tom Walker Memorial team honour a lad who was on the same ward as Robbie AndersonA group of school friends played an old boys’ reunion match in Robbie’s honour in 2009 and ten years on that has morphed into one of the largest tens tournaments in England, attracting 30 teams and thousands of spectators.

Behind the Loughborough tournament are two poignant stories that sparked the rugby community into action Robbie’s Rugby Festival celebrates ten-year anniversaryRugby and charity go hand in hand and one of the best examples of that union takes place on Saturday 28 July on the playing fields of Loughborough Grammar School.Robbie’s Rugby Festival is a joyous mix of tens and sevens rugby played to a sombre backdrop. Robbie Anderson was only 13 when he lost an 18-month battle against cancer in 2006, but he still created a trust to help young people and their families cope with and fight cancer on a daily basis.Every day in the UK, six teenagers are diagnosed with cancer and a modernised ward at Leicester Royal Infirmary is tangible evidence of the difference the Robbie Anderson Cancer Trust has made to the lives of young patients.last_img read more

His family has received no news of him since then.

His family has received no news of him since then.”Although carried out by the police, the arrest seems more like a kidnapping,” the press freedom organization said. “Abdel Razak Al Mansouri’s family has not been informed of the charges against him or where he is being held, so we call on foreign diplomats based in Tripoli to ask the Libyan government for the official reason for his arrest and his place of detention.”Al Mansouri’s last article, dated 11 January and posted on the London-based dissident website www.akhbar-libya.com, mocked a speech made a few days before by President Gaddafi in which he said he “accepted different opinions.”Two messages were posted in late April and early May on the Akhbar Libya site by persons claiming to be Al Mansouri’s sisters, Noria and Faiza, in which they said they were “proud” of their brother and called on other Libyan Internet users to follow his example by posting messages on the Web in their own name.Aged 52, Al Mansouri is believed to have been arrested in the eastern city of Tobruk on the evening of 12 January. It is believed the security services transferred him to a prison in Tripoli two days later. Only Akhbar Libya has reported his arrest, which has never been confirmed by the authorities.Al Mansouri began writing articles for Akhbar Libya last year, discussing social issues and human rights violations by the Libyan authorities.Libya is ranked 154th in the Reporters Without Borders classification of 167 countries according to their respect for press freedom. last_img read more

Patrick O’Donovan announces €420,000 in funding for Limerick Greenway

first_imgFacebook Limerick Fine Gael TD and Minister of State Patrick O’DonovanLOCAL Minister Patrick O’Donovan has announced €420,000 in funding for the Limerick Greenway between Abbeyfeale, Newcastle West and Rathkeale. The funding comes from the Department of Rural and Community Development and is being made available by Minister Heather Humphreys  under the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up  Patrick O’Donovan said “I am thrilled to be able to announce this. This is fantastic news for the Limerick Greenway. Over the last number of years, I have announced literally millions of euro in funding for this amenity and we have seen the benefit of it, particularly now during the recent lockdown. The investment that we are making now is part of continuing to improve it for locals and visitors alike.” “The latest round of funding is to improve the signage and the Greenway itself and is being done in conjunction with Failte Ireland and Limerick City and County Council. Over the recent past I have worked with the Council to help refurbish the tunnel in Barnagh which has been restored to its former glory also secure the two old stations in Ardagh and Barnagh for the Greenway. Today, more good news from the Government and Minister Humphreys, which I know will be welcomed locally.” “As Minister for Tourism I laid out a plan and a vision that would see the Greenway go from Lough Derg to the Atlantic through Clare, Limerick, and Kerry. The main corner stones of that are I believe being put in place bit by bit and with continued investment Kline this, and with the good news on the Kerry side, we are really making steady but positive progress to a major Greenway here in this part of Munster.” Patrick O’Donovan concluded by saying that the last twelve months have shown how impotent how important local parks, walkways, trails, and amenities area. “As a Government we have made big investments into our area through the Council and local voluntary groups, sporting organisations and clubs.

(FRL) and Reliance Industries’ retail stake sale deal worth Rs. 25,000 crore approved by a Board Resolution of FRL last year, a Delhi High Court Single-Judge Bench headed by Justice JR Midha had granted interim relief to Amazon directing all authorities and parties to maintain status quo on the deal until a detailed interim order on the case.This was, however, stayed on 8th February, by a Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh when an appeal was moved by FRL against the status quo order of Justice Midha. The Division Bench had noted that there was no reason to seek a status quo before the learned Single Judge and that statutory authorities like SEBI, CCI should not be restrained from proceeding in accordance with law.The instant plea before the Supreme Court, filed by Advocate Mohit Singh on behalf of Amazon, submits that the High Court has “failed to appreciate that orders made under the Act [Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996] are appealable only if there exists a provision under the Act specifically providing for a right to appeal”. Therefore, as the 2nd February order was issued under Section 17(2) of the act, it would stand that no appeal would lie as there are no provisions for appeal provided against an order issued under Section 17(2).The plea also raises the issue that the High Court has failed to exercise its jurisdiction in accordance with the legal principles settled in a catena of judgments “which have unequivocally held that an appeal is a creature of the stature and the right to appeal inherits in no one”, and accordingly, Section 37 consciously takes away the right of an appeal against orders not contemplated under the Section.It has further been contended that FRL could not have preferred the Appeal before the Division Bench under Order XLIII Rule 1(r) of the CPC read with Section 13(1) of the Commercial Courts Act, 2015, thereby challenging an order issued under Section 17(2) of the Act.”It is submitted that the Hon’ble High Court, while issuing the Impugned Interim Common Order, conveniently ignored the fact that Section 13(1) of the Commercial Courts Act, 2015 merely provides the forum for filing appeals and does not confer an independent right of appeal. Further, it is the parameters of Section 37 of the Act alone which have to be looked at in order to determine whether the appeal is maintainable or not”.The plea argues that the Impugned Interim Common Order was passed hastily “without waiting for the detailed order which is yet to be issued by the Single Judge of the Hon’ble High Court”.”It is submitted that the Hon’ble High Court, while issuing the Impugned Interim Common Order, failed to appreciate that the Single Judge Order was issued by the Single Judge of the Hon’ble High Court for the limited purpose of preserving the rights of the parties till the pronouncement of the final orders and after coming to the conclusion that the Respondents have violated the directions contained in the EA Order including on the basis of the Respondents’ own unequivocal submission that would not maintain status quo”.Other grounds which have been raised include that the Appeal filed by FRL is an attempt to mount a collateral challenge to the EA Order and that FRL has acted in complete disregard of the rule of law and procedure prescribed by law. Further, the High Court has ignored the settled principle that an execution court cannot alter the terms of an order much less a court of appeal.The High Court, the plea submits, has also failed to appreciate the settled principle on the application of the “Group of Companies” doctrine, due to which the impugned order “comes to a legally unsustainable conclusion that the ‘Group of Companies’ doctrine has no application, completely ignoring the fact the three agreements considered by the EA was FRL, SHA, FCPL SSA and the FCPL SHA and not the purported agreement entered into by Reliance Retail Limited and FRL”.In light of the above, the plea states that the balance of convenience lies in favour of the Petitioner and there exists a strong prima facie case in its favour. Further, irreparable harm would be caused to the Petitioner if the impugned order is not stayed. Next Storylast_img read more

Almost 1,000 jobs will be lost at the company’s factory at Woodford,Manchester, 300 at Chadderton, also in Manchester, and 219 at Prestwick as BAESystems pulls out of regional aircraft manufacturing and concentrates on thedefence industry. In the half-year to 30 June 2001, 70 per cent of the company’s sales andprofits were from defence activities and these businesses are expected to makegood progress next year. “We have completed a detailed assessment of the probable impact on ourbusiness of the recent severe downturn in the commercial aerospacemarket,” said John Weston, chief executive of BAE Systems. “Since September, the trading outlook has changed substantially. Inparticular, operating profit expectations for Airbus next year have beenreduced significantly and the outlook for regional aircraft has deterioratedsharply,” he added.

Aerogravity evidence for major crustal thinning under the Pine Island Glacier region (West Antarctica)

first_imgThe West Antarctic Rift System provides critical geological boundary conditions for the overlying West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Previous geophysical surveys have traced the West Antarctic Rift System and addressed the controls that it exerts on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet in the Ross Sea Embayment. However, much less is known about the rift system under the Amundsen Sea Embayment, a key sector of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is thinning significantly today. New aerogravity data over the Pine Island Glacier region, one of the fastest flowing glaciers within the Amundsen Sea Embayment, sheds new light into the crustal structure under this dynamic part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Three-dimensional (3-D) inversion of terrain-decorrelated free-air and Bouguer gravity anomaly data reveal significant crustal thinning beneath the catchment of Pine Island Glacier. Under the Byrd Subglacial Basin and the newly identified Pine Island Rift, Moho depth is estimated to be 19 ± 1 km. This is the thinnest crust observed beneath the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Estimates of lithosphere rigidity (Te), based on isostatic models, yield a Te of 5 ± 5 km, which is comparable to values from modern rift systems such as the Basin and Range Province. Major crustal thinning, coupled with low lithosphere rigidity, attest to the considerable impact of continental rifting beneath this part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. In analogy with the better known Ross Sea segment of the West Antarctic Rift System we suggest that the Amundsen Sea Embayment was affected by distributed Cretaceous rifting, followed by Cenozoic narrow-mode rifting. Narrow-mode rifting within the Pine Island Rift is particularly important as it may serve as a geological template for enhanced glacial flow associated with Pine Island Glacier.last_img read more

NATO-Russia Council Holds Anti-Piracy Seminar

first_imgThe NATO-Russia Council held an anti-piracy seminar in new building of Central Naval Museum in St. Petersburg. The main issue on the agenda was countering Somali piracy which is the primary threat of present-day shipping. The military are sure such meetings would improve relations between the Alliance and Russia.NATO’s military delegation headed by Rear Admiral Hank Ort, MC Northwood’s Chief of Staff arrived in St. Petersburg within the framework of the NATO-Russia Council convening in Moscow. Director of Central Naval Museum Andrei Lyalin met the guests and proposed to take memorable photo in the museum’s hall on background of Russian and NATO members’ national flags. Russian party represented by Navy Main HQ, Kuznetsov Naval Academy, and Northern Fleet HQ told about security activities taken by civil crews, actions of Russian marine units, and offered to develop anti-piracy cooperation between Russia and NATO. During the seminar, the partners outlined tactical episodes of joint actions between Russian Navy and NATO Maritime Component.The military paid particular attention to counteracting of Somali pirates’ raids in the Gulf of Aden. The most dangerous are mid fall and mid spring when pirates are most active – over 20 attacks in a month. Despite the might of warships, pirates are quite difficult to be punished – it’s the weakness of maritime legislation in anti-piracy matters. Captured pirates must be handed over to Hague Court, but normally they are just let free. The ground for arrest is fire arms or other attack means which in most cases are thrown overboard. Unarmed people are classified as sufferers and must be rescued. According to the military, such seminars help professionals to find much to talk about. To share ideas and thoughts, they use the language familiar to military all across the globe.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, November 02, 2011; November 2, 2011 View post tag: NATO-Russia NATO-Russia Council Holds Anti-Piracy Seminar View post tag: Council View post tag: News by topic View post tag: seminar View post tag: holdscenter_img View post tag: Anti-Piracy Share this article View post tag: Navy Authorities View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today NATO-Russia Council Holds Anti-Piracy Seminar last_img read more
