Eddie Jones’s team take title on points difference ahead of France A season like no other, a Championship like no other…Congratulations to 2020 #GuinnessSixNations champions, @EnglandRugby! pic.twitter.com/xwfeU5sfxP— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) October 31, 2020Next on the agenda for England is the new Autumn Nations Cup competition, where they will face Georgia, Ireland and Wales in November before a final match against one of Fiji, France, Italy or Scotland.Head coach Jones is already setting his sights on another trophy, saying: “We’ll have a couple of days rest then get back together later next week and put everything we have into our preparation for the Autumn Nations Cup. It’s another really important tournament for us and I’ll be expecting the same levels of application as we work towards performing at our best.“We’d also like to thank all of our supporters. It’s strange not having fans in the stadium and we know it is a tough time for the country but we felt your support throughout the campaign and it does make a difference. Hopefully we can continue to deliver more good moments for our fans in the coming weeks.”England will be presented with the Six Nations trophy upon returning to their Lensbury hotel base tomorrow.

Neither side could achieve their target – France won 35-27 – so England have duly been crowned champions.Related: Cian Healy scores a try on 100th Test appearance England win Six Nations 2020England are this year’s Six Nations champions.This is their third championship title in five years under Eddie Jones and they top the table on points difference ahead of France.With the Red Roses already crowned Women’s Six Nations champions – they are hoping to secure back-to-back Grand Slams by beating Italy tomorrow – it means England have done the double in 2020.England’s men beat Italy 34-5 in Rome but the title was not confirmed until the end of the France v Ireland match in Paris on Super Saturday as both those sides were also in contention.Related: Ben Youngs marks 100th England cap with two tries Owen Farrell described the title triumph as a “massive achievement” and believes there is still much to come from this England team, which reached the World Cup final a year ago. The captain said: “It feels like we’re just getting started.“We had four new caps (Jonny Hill, Tom Dunn, Ollie Thorley and Ollie Lawrence) today, a guy who got 100 caps in Ben Youngs and Jamie George got 50, so there’s a brilliant blend of experience and youth to drive us forward.”last_img read more

The planned shopping facilities are located on that side. Between the two lies a heart, an innerness, a space for “good neighbourly relations”, the idea of the courtyard. It is transparent to the creche, a landscaped patio extending the newly-inaugurated square.Save this picture!Floor PlanOverhead, air, light and sky. The originality of this Paris site is in the sense, the possibility that you can walk around.

Songaminute man raises over £75k for Alzheimer’s Society

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. A man with Alzheimer’s and his son whose videos of their carpool karaoke sessions have gone viral have so far raised more than £75,000 for Alzheimer’s Society, with the total tripling in the last week.Ted McDermott has sung throughout his life, as a Butlins Redcoat, and in clubs around the country. Despite suffering from Alzheimer’s, he can still remember the words to many songs, and has earned himself the nickname the Songaminute Man.His son Mac started fundraising via JustGiving in June for Alzheimer’s Society by posting videos of their in-car song sessions to thank the charity for the support given by its phoneline since Ted’s diagnosis, with an initial target of £1,000. Their videos have gone viral, raising £26,500 by 9th August, with the total then tripling in a week.On his JustGiving page, Mac McDermott said:“I’m fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Society because of the advice they’ve given us in the last few years. Without them we would have had very little idea or support about how to deal with even the basics of Dad’s condition. The plan is to share as much of Dad’s singing as we can and hopefully it will help raise money to fund the work of the Alzheimer’s Society – more specifically to go towards paying for a person at the end of the phoneline to help other people like us.”  143 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: Fundraising ideas Justgiving social media viral AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis49  144 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis49 Songaminute man raises over £75k for Alzheimer’s Societylast_img read more

Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises record amount with Christmas campaign

first_imgRoyal Marsden Cancer Charity raises record amount with Christmas campaign Melanie May | 18 January 2021 | News The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity’s 2020 Celebrate a Life campaign raised a record amount of £112,000 over the festive period.The charity’s annual ‘Celebrate a Life’ campaign celebrates the lives of family, friends and loved ones who have been affected by cancer and saw its 17th outing last year. It encourages supporters to donate to name a star which is then placed on one of the 20-foot Christmas trees outside the hospital in Chelsea or Sutton during December. The campaign was run virtually for the first time in 2020, and as well as the physical trees, there was also a virtual tree displaying the named stars on the charity’s website.Usually hundreds of people gather at two Celebrate a Life carol services outside the Chelsea and Sutton hospitals. As a result of Covid-19, it became virtual with more than 350 people tuning in to the live video posted on Facebook to watch performances from local choirs and bands, prayers and a reading from guest speaker, Jonathan Pryce CBE.Despite not being able to hold the physical event, the campaign saw an 8% increase in fundraising, with over 2,700 stars named.The money raised from Celebrate a Life helps to fund equipment and research into new treatments to save and improve the lives of cancer patients, both at The Royal Marsden, and throughout the country.The previous year’s campaign raised over £103,000.Antonia Dalmahoy, Managing Director of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said:“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has generously supported Celebrate a Life this year and helped us raise more than ever to continue improving the lives of people affected by cancer, even in the most challenging of times.“We know how important Celebrate a Life is to our patients, their loved ones and our staff. We were all disappointed not to be able to gather together at the hospital. However, the virtual service was a huge success and we’re incredibly grateful to everyone who named a star and joined us virtually to celebrate the lives of those affected by cancer.” Tagged with: christmas virtual event About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

We come from a culture very centered around images, especially with Instagram and Facebook,” said Alicia James, senior political science major and Habitudes facilitator. “We’re always surrounded by advertising and the such, so it makes sense to use images to learn about ourselves as leaders.”Students study two to three images per session. After learning about the images, they reflect on them and create personal relationships between the leadership concept and the images.Dede Williams, the director of the TCU Leadership Center, said this seminar differs from others because of the framing of the curriculum.“Other seminars jump ahead and ask the question, ‘How can I lead?’” Williams said. “This one is only, ‘How can I lead myself?’ You have to understand how to lead yourself before you can lead your peers to an end goal.”Andrew Nash, the hall director for the Tom Brown Pete Wright and Sandage/McCart Apartment Communities and a Habitudes facilitator, said the curriculum pushes students to understand their leadership skills through reflections.“It really forces you to reflect on your thoughts, beliefs and actions to determine if you’re the type of leader you want to be,” Nash said. “College is a time of self-reflection and self-discovery for so many people. Doing things such as Habitudes will make you reflect on whether or not you’re on the path you want to be going down.”Each program session is led by two upperclassmen student facilitators and a hall director. The Monday trio works with about 20 TCU students in the group, while the Friday facilitators work with about 10 TCU students.The facilitators said they were excited to get to know a new generation of TCU students, with James saying she hopes to build relationships with those younger than her. Nash added that he wants to become a resource to those at TCU.“I’m glad we were able to add this in this semester because almost all of our other leadership seminars were at a max and we kept increasing the numbers,” Williams said. “There’s a lot of growing popularity in our leadership seminars, and by adding [Habitudes], the popularity will grow even more.” ReddIt TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summerlast_img read more

‘Stoppage Of Oxygen Tankers By One State Will Have Snowballing Effect’ : Delhi High Court Urges Rajasthan To Ensure Unobstructed Passage

first_imgTop Stories’Stoppage Of Oxygen Tankers By One State Will Have Snowballing Effect’ : Delhi High Court Urges Rajasthan To Ensure Unobstructed Passage Nupur Thapliyal26 April 2021 9:12 PMShare This – xPulling up the State of Rajasthan for detaining cryogenic tankers moved by INOX from the State, the Delhi High Court on Monday observed that any intervention in the Central Government’s plan for supplying medical oxygen in the Country would “tantamount to endangering hundreds of human life, if not more.”A division bench comprising of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli also went ahead to observe that it serves no purpose for anyone to cause any obstruction in the smooth flow of the much needed medical oxygen supply.”It serves no purpose for anyone to cause any obstruction in the smooth flow of much needed Medical Oxygen. Stoppage of tankers by one State would have snow balling effect, and would eventually adversely impact the concerned State as well.” The Bench observed.The observation came on the submission made by INOX stating that their four cryogenic tankers were detained by the State of Rajasthan after they were moved from the State in order to service the transportation arrangement from the plants of Air Liquide.When the aspect was brought into the notice of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta representing the Centre, assurance was given by him to the Bench that strict action will be taken on such incidents and that it shall be ensured that the tankers are freed so that they can proceed to their destination for the propose of filling and supplying liquid medical oxygen.At the outset, the Court observed thus:”We hope and expect that State of Rajasthan to honor the orders passed by the Central Government, as well as orders passed by this Court. Any intervention by anyone in the plan put in place by the Central Government for the supply of medical oxygen in the country, at this stage, would tantamount to endangering hundreds of human life, if not more.”Furthermore, noting that since the distribution plan had been worked upon by the Central Government after taking into consideration the needs of all the States and UTs, the Court observed that any concerns arising before any State should be addressed to the Virtual Central Control Room, already created by the Central Government, which consists of Nodal Officers representing the States.Report on Pending Imports of Equipments Required to Set-up and Operate RTPCR CentresDuring the course of hearing, Additional Solicitor General Chetan Sharma apprised the Court about the directions issued by the Central Government to all custom offices as regards to taking steps for prioritising clearance of imported equipments for setting up and operating RTPCT testing centres.At the outset, Solicitor General submitted before the Court that the Central Government would call for a report in this regard. In view of this, the Court directed thus:”Let the report be called for as to how many such imports are pending, and how many are cleared, and what is the duration for which the imports are held up at the ports, and the reasons thereof. Let the said information be placed before us in a sealed cover within three days.”On Non Availability and Black Marketing of Oxygen CylindersOpining that the issue of non-availability and consequent black marketing of Oxygen cylinders was taking place rampantly in the national capital, the Bench directed all the refillers to provide information with regard to the supplies made by them and to be present in the hearing scheduled for Tuesday.”We direct all the refillers to ensure that the refilled cylinders are supplied in terms of the directions of the GNCTD, and all such supplies are accounted for, failing which, we shall be compelled to take strict action against them.” The Bench directed.Furthermore, the Court had also directed the 3 major stakeholders the hospitals, Delhi government and the suppliers of oxygen, that they must get together and conduct a meeting on a priority basis at 5 PM on Monday to discuss modalities of, and issues in oxygen supply to hospitals across Delhi.”The Chief Secretary, GNCTD is present, and is agreeable to call a meeting today itself with the suppliers – who are allocated to supply liquid Medical Oxygen to Delhi, representatives of the hospitals and nursing homes, as well as the refillers, to work out the modality and smoothen the entire process of distribution of medical Oxygen in the NCT of Delhi. The meeting shall be held today itself at 05:00 P.M. without waiting for a copy of this order. An intimation be made to all concerned, and they may be provided with the link of the video conference meeting. Whatever resolution is arrived shall be placed before this Court by tomorrow.” The Court directed at the outset.Click Here To Read OrderTags#Delhi High Court Oxygen Supply Oxygen Shortage Oxygen Cylinders State of Rajasthan GNCTD RTPCR COVID-19 second wave Justice Vipin Sanghi Justice Rekha Palli Next Storylast_img read more

Geomorphic signature of Antarctic submarine gullies: Implications for continental slope processes

first_imgFive quantitatively distinct gully types are identified on the Antarctic continental margin from swath bathymetric data of over 1100 individual features. The gullies differ in terms of length, width, depth, width/depth ratio, cross-sectional shape, branching order, sinuosity and spatial density. Quantitative analysis suggests that Antarctic gully morphology varies with local slope character (i.e. slope geometry, gradient), regional factors (i.e. location of cross-shelf troughs, trough mouth fans, subglacial meltwater production rates, drainage basin size), sediment yield and ice-sheet history. In keeping with interpretations of previous researchers, most gullies are probably formed by hyperpycnal flows of sediment-laden subglacial meltwater released from beneath ice-sheets grounded at the continental shelf edge during glacial maxima. The limited down-slope extent of gullies on the western Antarctic Peninsula is explained by the steep gradient and slope geometry at the mouth of Marguerite Trough, which cause flows to accelerate and entrain seawater more quickly, resulting in a reduction of the negative buoyancy effect of the sediment load. Due to pressure gradients at the ice-sheet bed caused by variations in ice thickness inside and outside palaeo-ice stream troughs, subglacial meltwater flow was generally focussed towards trough margins. This has resulted in gullies with larger cross-sectional areas and higher sinuosities at the trough margins. A unique style of gullying is observed off one part of the western Antarctic Peninsula, corresponding to an area in which the ice-sheet grounding line is not thought to have reached the shelf edge during the Last Glacial Maximum. We interpret the features in this area as the cumulative result of slope processes that operated over a long period of time in the absence of hyperpycnal meltwater flows.last_img read more
