RFU changes confirmed – Rob Andrew and Clive Woodward

first_imgThe Rugby Football Union (RFU) has today announced a major organisational restructure following the arrival of John Steele as Chief Executive in September 2010.The changes, unanimously approved by the RFU Board of Directors, will, they hope, create a new streamlined executive leadership with more emphasis on delivering rugby at all levels and will simplify the organisational structure and way of working.Rob Andrew’s current job as Elite Rugby Director is scrapped, a position which he has held since August 2006, and the whole elite department revamped. A new, single, rugby department will be created which will be divided into three areas – Performance, Operations and Development – with new director roles created in each area reporting directly to the CEO. All rugby elements of the business will be integrated within the new rugby department to deliver clearer purpose and accountability, which will in turn improve the quality of experience from the top to the bottom of the game in England.Rob Andrew will stay in his job inititally, but will be invited to apply for the job as Operations Director.It is the Performance Director’s role, which will look after the England team (and mean Martin Johnson will have a new boss) that will cause the most speculation. But as BBC reports Sir Clive Woodward will not apply for this post.Eddie Jones and Jake White have already expressed an interest in the new job.In addition, two other new roles will be created with enhanced responsibilities. A Chief Commercial Officer role responsible for all of the revenue generating elements of the business and an enhanced Chief Financial Officer role encompassing all the corporate support services. All the new roles will be advertised from next week and will be subject to an open recruitment process. It is expected that internal and external candidates will apply.Also as part of the reorganisation a number of RFU executives have left the business with immediate effect as their roles no longer exist within the new structure. Andrew Scoular, Nick Bunting, Terry Burwell, Richard Prescott and Ian King depart from their roles as Community Rugby Director, Head of Planning, Funding and Resources, Tournaments and Competitions Director, Elite Team Media Director and Head of HR.Martyn Thomas, Chairman of the RFU Board of Directors, commented: “When we hired John we said we were confident he had the vision and the drive to ensure we could take the RFU to the next phase of its growth and today he has proved that was true. His initial recommendations, which we were unanimous in approving, were based on deep insight and clear evidence and John has our total support. The changes we are making signal a changing of the guard and the new refreshed leadership team will give the RFU new impetus and a clearer strategic direction not just at the Elite end of the game but across the whole game. We will emerge from the next few months a stronger, more effective union and John is to be applauded for taking the tough decisions needed to get there and for delivering the changes in a way that is cost neutral to the business.” The recruitment process will start next week. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img John Steele added. “I have spent the last few months gathering insight and views on how the RFU could better serve the game. I have toured England talking to staff, clubs, players, sponsors and any other rugby stakeholders I could spend time with to find out what we were good at and where we could improve. What became clear is that while we had a sound commercial platform, we did not have enough focus on the quality of the rugby experience across the game. So the new structure puts rugby right at the centre of the business and seeks to create more rugby expertise to benefit all levels of the game.“The next five years will be some of the most exciting in the RFU’s history and I wanted to make sure we are in the right shape as an organisation to seize the opportunities in front of us. These new executive roles are a huge opportunity to ensure that we have the brightest and the best people leading the business moving forward.”RFU Statement on Rob Andrew’s role: Over and above its statement on the overall impact of the organisational changes announced today, the Rugby Football Union wanted, given the widespread media speculation over the past week, to clarify the situation regarding the new Rugby Department and Rob Andrew’s role.When John Steele arrived at the RFU as CEO he made it clear that he would put rugby at the heart of the business and the creation of a new, single, rugby department delivers on that commitment. This is a significant shift and each of the three new directors will play a major role in ensuring the future growth and development of the game in England from the grassroots to the top of the professional game.John Steele, CEO of the RFU, commented, “Today’s announcement is all about looking forward not back and ensuring that we have the best people in place to serve and lead rugby in England as we prepare for a home world cup in 2015. In view of this we are placing huge emphasis on developing the leadership and vision for the new rugby department. The three senior appointments in the rugby area are hugely important to the future of the game. We have invited Rob to apply for the Rugby Operations Director role which is a game wide role responsible for creating the rugby infrastructure required to make rugby work across England.”However it is important to note that the development of this new structure will take six to nine months to put in place and in the interim those applying for roles will stay in their current position while the recruitment process happens and the transitions take place. This means that Rob Andrew will continue with his current responsibilities until the process is complete.Rob Andrew added, ‘I am very excited about the future of the game in England, and the re-structuring that will place rugby at the heart of everything the RFU does. Change is never easy but there are some exciting opportunities and challenges ahead. I will be considering the role of Rugby Operations Director in the coming weeks and in the meantime will continue with my responsibilities as Elite Rugby Director.’last_img read more

When we first visited these houses, designed by architect Javier Goerlich in 1922, we found that previous renovations, including the bathrooms and kitchens, occupied what was formerly patio space. This pattern, a common occurrence in many houses in the El Cabanyal neighborhood, reduces the spatial quality and lighting of the interiors, especially on the ground floor. Moreover, some aspects of the traditional layouts of the time, in particular small, windowless bedrooms are outdated and do not meet current tastes and needs.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Milena VillalbaTo address these issues, the renovation opens up a generous L-shaped patio, bathing the ground floor in generous natural light, with new windows facing multiple directions. We also restored the original cement tile floor, the exquisite wooden carpentry, the wall and floor tiles, the stained glass windows, and other decorative details — including unexpected surprises such as fresco paintings in the plaster of the vaulted ceilings that we discovered in the course of the work. The now-restored works of carpentry, excellent examples of modernist craftsmanship, have been relocated in other rooms, giving them a new life and significance.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Milena VillalbaThe layout has been completely reconfigured: with the aim of respecting Goerlich’s original structure, the renovation improves ventilation, use of space, and lighting, establishing improved connectivity between the rooms. With these updates, the homes meet current norms and expectations.  The scale and height are generous, not an easy or common feat in living spaces today. New woodwork has been adapted to this grand scale, built to match the 3-meter height of the interiors. The larger rooms are appropriate for these dimensions. In addition, the unconventional ad-hoc kitchen design incorporates custom brick and plaster furniture, with waxed concrete, restored hand-painted tiles to form a stripe of color high on the walls, as well as the placement of the cabinets. This kitchen is reminiscent of the simple ones found in traditional Valencian farmhouses, which are called ‘Alquerias’. Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaUltimately, this project is about updating homes, in some cases transforming them completely, while maintaining the character and spirit of the original design.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!© Milena VillalbaProject gallerySee allShow lessIJssel Bridge / MoederscheimMoonen ArchitectsSelected ProjectsCasa l’Alba i en Lluc / OBO EstudiSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Valencia, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Stuart Armstrong’s new book, however, is a guide for all those in a charity who are not fundraisers but who need to understand fundraising. He has even manage to distil his advice into a one-hour read.Armstrong’s guide, Fundraising: the essentials for success revealed in one hour”, is designed for the “much larger constituency” of people involved with charities and committed to their financial success, but who are not themselves professional fundraisers. These could include trustees, board members, campaign chairs, and senior executives.He describes these people as “that element of the fundraising market that is largely ignored when it comes to education and skills improvement”.Despite the breadth and depth of fundraising skills and tactics, the 86-page book, subtitled “the essentials for success revealed in one hour’, gives them the core information that Armstrong feels they need. It details the key elements of a fundraising campaign, highlights where problems can occur, and explains how to overcome them.The guide is divided into three sections:Are you ready?Get setGoFollowing a career in sales and marketing and corporate communications, Stuart Armstrong has for 25 years created and delivered successful fundraising campaigns for organisations such as the Royal Society of Edinburgh, The UK Stem Cell Foundation, the Edinburgh International Festival, and St Giles Cathedral.He is also the grants administrator for a charitable trust which he says gives him “a privileged insight into the good and the bad of how organisations present their case”.Given its conciseness and the evident experience that underpins it, the book is of course a tool for fundraisers themselves.Iain More, founder of the More Partnership, says that until now, following 40 years of fundraising experience, he had “never seen a cogent, easy to read explanation of the elements of the profession I have practised until The Essentials of Success“.Armstrong concludes with two quotations from two Carnegies, Dale and Andrew. He quotes the former: “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you”.You can find Fundraising: the essentials for success revealed in one hour in UK Fundraising’s bookshop.  182 total views,  5 views today Advertisement  183 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis27last_img read more

Reporters Without Borders to call on candidates to pledge support for media

first_img IsraelMiddle East – North Africa June 3, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Israel Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes Reporters Without Borders today repeated its concern about press freedom in Israel after the beating of two Palestinian photographers working for international news agencies and the official questioning of a journalist about a report concerning alleged corruption by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.”Instead of investigating the suspected corruption itself, state prosecutor Elyakim Rubinstein clearly prefers to exert pressure on the media,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “The questioning of the journalist is a serious abuse.”The organisation has frequently denounced attacks on press freedom in the Palestinian Territories by Israeli army troops using excessive and undue force against foreign and Palestinian journalists, who have been roughed up, insulted, targeted with weapons and harassed.The new concern comes on the eve of next week’s general election, when Reporters Without Borders will call on candidates to promise to respect press freedom. The appeal will be made in Hebrew and English, in the daily paper Haaretz on 24 January.The two journalists, photographers Jaafar Ashtieh of Agence France-Presse and Nasser Ashtieh of Associated Press, were hit and threatened with death by Israeli frontier guards in Nablus on 21 January when they tried to take pictures of the guards driving a jeep at high speed with two Palestinians hanging on to the hood to keep from falling off. The guards stopped and punched the photographers, warning that “if we see a picture of us published anywhere, we’re going to kill you.”Also on 21 January, a commission of enquiry appointed by the justice ministry questioned Baruch Kra, a journalist with Haaretz, which reported that an investigation had begun into a loan to Sharon by a South African businessman. Kra refused to reveal his sources, but a Tel Aviv prosecutor, Liora Glatt Berkovich, admitted at the same time that she had been the source.”The journalist was not questioned about the source of his information but because he was suspected of obstructing the enquiry,” the ministry said.The paper had reported on 7 January that Sharon and his sons Omri and Gilad were suspected of corruption, fraud and breach of trust concerning a $1.5 million loan to the prime minister by a South African businessman friend, Cyril Kern.Legal expert Moshe Negri said the questioning of a journalist was unprecedented and that the insinuation of obstructing justice was “completely unfounded. The Israeli supreme court has ruled in 1987 that police cannot force journalists to reveal their sources except in special circumstances.

People from all walks of life and all levels of fitness take part and everyone goes out of their way to make new people feel welcome.”“Not only do you get to immerse yourself in some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenery and enjoy great sing-songs in the evenings, you will also be making a huge difference to patients and their families with EB,” he said.For more information on Debra Ireland’s Kerry Challenge see Emailcenter_img Twitter Facebook Print Previous articleMango X Mathman play Seoda ShowsNext articleDogs Trust will help find your perfect match this Valentine’s Day Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

DCC will reconsider decision to defer housing offer to Traveller family

first_img WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Donegal County Council says it will reconsider an application for housing support to a family on foot of a hearing in the High Court.The reports that Brian and Eileen Ward and their five children, who are members of the Travelling community, had sued the council after it decided not to offer them housing support on the grounds that they posed an unacceptable risk of engaging in anti-social behaviour.The family, which includes two children with medical needs, is currently living in a caravan at Shore Front, Bundoran.The family challenged the council’s decision in the High Court, claiming it was flawed because irrelevant considerations had been taken into account.The matter returned before the High Court when barrister Mark Lynam, who appeared for the Wards with solicitors for the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, told Mr Justice Antony Barr that the council had agreed to reconsider the Ward’s application for housing support.Fintan Valentine, counsel for the local authority, said the order could be quashed on consent and said his client had acted “with expedition” after the case had been brought to court. Judge Barr struck out the proceedings.The family currently have no running water and have limited use of a generator and had unsuccessfully tried to secure private rented accommodation.Last March they had been told by the council they presented a risk of engaging in anti-social behaviour and any offer of housing had been deferred.

It’s good to see how easily the longtime families and the new families are blending.”Sikes said a focus of the new school year will be to encourage positive characteristics among the students in all grades.“We want our students to understand the qualities and attributes that contribute to positive characteristics in all of us,” she said. “So, this year, we are adding something new.”Each week, PLAS will highlight a character-building “word of the week” that the teachers can use to support writing assignments, as spelling and vocabulary words and other class related activities. “Each week, we will also include a scripture that relates to the word,” Sikes said.“We want our students to have positive outlooks and to be good community citizens.”The “word of the week” for the first week of school is, “self-respect.”“Self-respect is most important when developing character,” Sikes said. “It’s a great word for our first word.”On Thursday, PLAS will celebrate the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year with a “Back to School” rally and, on Friday night, the Patriots will take the field against Crenshaw Christian Academy in the season-opening jamboree.
