Get to know Welsh workhorse Luke Charteris

first_imgCharteris will be part of a young Wales squad determined to make history, by claiming a spot in the RWC finalOne of the great things about rugby is the central role of the unsung hero. You know the guy, he’s in every successful team, smashing into rucks, carrying the ball up and making sure the set-piece is running like clockwork. In the Welsh team one of the players who rarely gets the plaudits but is the key reason players like Jamie Roberts and Mike Phillips get over the gain-line is Luke Charteris, the Dragons lock who made a huge breakthrough in this World Cup. When he was picked ahead of Bradley Davies for the opening game against South Africa, a few eyebrows were raised back home but not in the squad, where he is highly regarded, especially by head coach Warren Gatland.So is Charteris bothered about his current graft-without-glory role? “What the management ask from the front five is for us to make our tackles and hit as many rucks as you can,” he tells me in Wellington. “We’re the workhorses if you like, but that’s why we have a mobile and fit front five, to play the style of game we want.“The idea is if we can do all of that work it frees up guys like Tobes (Faletau) to get their hands on the ball and cause some damage. I haven’t got the skills or gas to be in the backs so you have to make the best of what you’ve got. It’s a team game. It doesn’t matter who gets over the whitewash as long as we get the win.”Ankle, elbow and knee problems restricted Charteris to 25 caps in seven years before this World Cup, but he might have doubled that tally if he had stayed fit because Gatland has selected him whenever he’s been injury-free. “Any professional player is up and down with injuries – it’s a fact of life so you can’t let it get you down,” he says. “I got caps back in 2004, but last season was the first time I had really put together a whole season of being fit – I managed to get my body in a good place and get my confidence back.“All you can do is try to stay fit and put in the performances. If that means you get selected then happy days. All I need to focus on now is keeping that spot in the Wales team. “Warren has been here for a few years now and we all know what is expected from us, what we have to do to get in the team. Pulling on the Welsh jersey is massive for me, such an honour, and it brings it home to you when you see the amazing support we’ve had in New Zealand.”When the going got really tough for Wales in their second pool match against Samoa, it was Alun Wyn Jones, not Charteris, who was taken off for Davies late on. The Dragon’s line speed and defensive abilities had been key to keeping the Samoans at bay. He was the first person into the tackle, leading the line time and again. He now cuts a much more powerful figure than the ‘beanpole’ who made his Wales debut in 2004. He’s been 6ft 9in since his teens, but in recent years he has bulked up to 19st 4lb.One of Wales’ biggest problems in recent years has been their failure to perform at the lineout. That all changed at the World Cup, when Charteris helped them match the usually supreme South Africans. “Our aim was to control the ball and control territory. We did that but had two lapses in concentration and a team of that quality will punish you,” he says of the 17-16 defeat. “We’ve put a lot of work into the lineout and it’s paying off. Huw Bennett’s throwing in was awesome and the unit went well.”Jones calls the lineout but Charteris takes over if he goes off. “Whether Alun Wyn is calling or I am it doesn’t matter – it’s something we’ve both done all of our lives. We help each other out.”Wales are lucky at the moment because they have a trio of locks that complement each other. All three will play in every big game and the starting two are under extra pressure to perform. “You have one slightly off game and you’re back out of the team – we all know that and appreciate that competition is important to the success of the team,” says Charteris. “Bradley and Alun Wyn are both quality players and it’s great to play alongside them. Off the field I can’t speak highly enough of them as well. We spent so much time as a squad in the summer that the boys are really tight.” Charteris also enjoys a close and happy relationship with his Dragons team-mates – an important factor in his decision to stay loyal to the Gwent side despite having chances to move to other Welsh regions and the Aviva Premiership.“Loyalty is very important to me,” he says. “It’s my tenth year at the Dragons and although we haven’t necessarily got the success we wanted, it’s been a really enjoyable time because of the people there. You need to be happy in whatever you do and that is what I have at the Dragons. We’re starting to build a team there now and hopefully we can start pushing higher up the leagues.”This article appeared in the November 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Rapidísimas

first_img September 27, 2013 at 9:43 pm Podria el buen director de “Rapidismas” comentar algo respect a la diocesis de Nicaragua, la separacion del Padre Stanford Cash quien reto al “Obispo downs” de separatista, podria tambien comentar sobre el Oscurantismo de la Iglesia en Centro America que se ha Escondido de comunicar al mundo su existencia y vida, amparandose en sus nuevas provincias anglocaribeans?. Y que paso con todo el trabajo, dedicacion y vision del Obispo Richards y la Diocesis de Costa Rica a quien el Obispo Ramos quiso convertir en TURISMO. Gracias Comments (1) Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 La reunión de otoño de la Cámara de Obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal terminó sus labores en la ciudad de Nashville, Tenesí. Al pase de lista 148 obispos dijeron presente. El lema de esta reunión fue “Transformando pérdidas en nuevas posibilidades”. Los obispos fueron retados a “ir a las comunidades en lugar de permanecer en sus lindas iglesias”. La obispa presidenta Katherine Jefferts Schori dijo que la reunión “estuvo llena de gracia”. Los obispos se reunieron por 8 días al final de septiembre.Entre los muchos temas en la agenda de los obispos episcopales se trataron asuntos como la violencia, las relaciones ecuménicas y la paz y la reconciliación en la Tierra Santa. Los obispos dialogaron con obispos metodistas sobre cooperación en la obra misionera y el significado de la comunión plena.En la reunión de los obispos se anunció que comenzando el 15 de noviembre se celebrará en Oklahoma un foro nacional sobre “Racismo en Estados Unidos” y en abril del año que viene se celebrará una conferencia similar sobre la violencia, las armas de fuego y la responsabilidad de las iglesias. Aún no se ha determinado el lugar.Maalaula es una ciudad enclavada en una zona montañosa de Siria, la mayor parte de sus 2000 habitantes se considera cristianos, muchos hablan un dialecto derivado del arameo, el idioma que habló Jesús y han tratado de mantenerse alejados de los conflictos internos de los musulmanes. Muchos piensan que esta situación cambiará debido a amenazas recibidas y a los recientes vandalismos que destruyeron valiosos objetos de la iglesia.  En una colina cercana se yergue majestuosa una gran estatua de la Virgen María.Shirin Ebadi, una ex jueza iraní de 66 años que ganó el premio Nobel de la Paz en el 2003 por su defensa de la democracia, los derechos humanos y la dignidad de las mujeres, vive exilada en Inglaterra. Ha dicho en una reciente entrevista que “no tengo ninguna esperanza de que las cosas puedan cambiar en Irán con el nuevo presidente, Rohaní”. Recordando sus años de cautiverio dijo que “el aislamiento y la soledad, son la peor tortura”. Añadió que el dolor que se sufre en una celda de dos por dos, con una puerta que se abre tres veces al día, “me acercó a Dios y me ayudó a sostenerme”.La Universidad Cristiana de Azusa en California ha despedido a su profesora de teología y filosofía después de 15 años de servicio, por haberse cambiado de sexo y nombre. Heather Clement  se llama ahora H. Adam Ackley. La universidad declinó reunirse con el abogado del docente despedido.El 13 de octubre seis mártires españoles serán beatificados en Tarragona, España. Cinco pertenecían a la Orden de la Santísima Trinidad. Se cree que durante la persecución religiosa de 1936 al comienzo de la Guerra Civil, 522 cristianos perecieron por su fe. Según el diccionario general español Vox la beatificación es el “procedimiento eclesiástico católico mediante el cual el papa declara que un fiel difunto goza, por sus virtudes, del cielo y es digno de culto: la beatificación es un paso previo a la canonización; en los procesos de beatificación y canonización debe resultar patente la ejemplaridad cristiana de los nuevos santos”.El periódico El País de Madrid publicó el miércoles una noticia que la prensa sensacionalista ha exagerado. La noticia es sencillamente que hay posibilidades de que el papa Francisco nombre a una mujer como cardenal, una de las principales posiciones de la jerarquía eclesiástica. “La Iglesia no puede ser ella misma sin la mujer”, dijo Francisco a la revista italiana Civiltá Católica. Mario Félix Lleonart, 38, pastor de la Iglesia Bautista de Taguayabón en la provincia de Villa Clara, Cuba, está visitando Estados Unidos y hablando libremente en los medios de la situación política y social de Cuba. Su esposa Yoaxis  Marcheco, le acompaña. Lleonart se siente optimista con respecto al regreso a la democracia porque dice que los gobernantes de Cuba son “muy impopulares” y rara vez el pueblo los menciona. “Es como si hubieran muerto”, añadió. El ex presidente George Bush, senior, y su esposa Bárbara, han sido criticados por asistir a la boda de dos amigas lesbianas. La boda tuvo lugar en el estado de Maine. Bush firmó el acta matrimonial como testigo. Dos organizaciones relacionadas con la Iglesia Episcopal, el Ministerio Nacional Episcopal de la Salud y la Red Episcopal de Política Pública, trabajan juntas para ayudar a que las personas entiendan la complicada legislación contenida en la ley llamada “Obamacare”.REFRÁN.

This project is a prototype for a system of energy-efficient modular housing, designed specifically for rural blocks.  The Leura Lane house is a ‘2 bedroom model’ comprised of two separate pavilions: one containing a carport and storerooms; the other containing living quarters.  The independence of these two pavilions gives complete flexibility to orientate the carport to face the street, while the living areas of the house can be oriented north or towards preferred views.  The house is linear in plan, with living areas at one end, the entry and utility spaces in the centre and bedrooms at the opposite end.  This plan provides the flexibility for additional bedrooms, bathrooms or living spaces to be added to the basic model. Save this picture!© John WilsonEnergy efficiency is a strong focus of the design. The house achieved an 8.2 star energy rating through the use of passive design principles, readily available materials and standard construction methods.  The living spaces are oriented to maximise solar gain in winter, with the large skillion roof calculated to provide summer shade.  High levels of bulk and reflective insulation are installed in both the walls and ceiling and all windows are double glazed with an argon-filled cavity.  Thermal mass is located in the floor slab, which is insulated from the earth to maintain warmth in the predominantly cold climate of southern Victoria.  The narrow floor plan of the house allows for substantial cross ventilation and the roof space is vented for summer cooling. Save this picture!© John WilsonThe site is a semi-rural landscape on the edge of town that contained a significant amount of native vegetation.  The use of natural materials that responded to this context was an important consideration and a restrained, simple palette was used both externally and internally.  The interior has a warm, earthy ambience with terrazzo tiles throughout the house and Australian hardwoods used extensively.  The exterior is clad in spotted gum which will slowly weather to a silver grey as the building ages.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessTunnel Monitoring Complex Hausmannstaetten / Dietger Wissounig ArchitektenSelected ProjectsFour Architectural Innovations Make Time’s Top 25 Inventions For 2013Architecture News Share Projects Architects: Cooper Scaife Architects Photographs “COPY” Houses CopyAbout this officeCooper Scaife ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHamiltonHousesAustraliaPublished on November 21, 2013Cite: “Leura Lane / Cooper Scaife Architects” 21 Nov 2013.

Five decades after independence, African journalists still seeking freedom

first_img to go further Receive email alerts News Africa Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders rallies former hostages in Paris, following the kidnapping of journalist Olivier Dubois. Follow the news on Africa Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria Horn still worst off, censorship hits Sudan and Rwanda, prison death mars CameroonWith many African countries marking the 50th anniversary of their independence, 2010 should have been a year of celebration but the continent’s journalists were not invited to the party. The Horn of Africa continues to be the region with the least press freedom but there were disturbing reverses in the Great Lakes region and East Africa.Eritrea (178th) is at the very bottom of the world ranking for the fourth year running. At least 30 journalists and four media contributors are held incommunicado in the most appalling conditions, without right to a trial and without any information emerging about their situation. Journalists employed by the state media – the only kind of media tolerated – have to choose between obeying the information ministry’s orders or trying to flee the country. The foreign media are not welcome.In Somalia (161st), the media are not being spared by the civil war between the transitional government and Islamist militias, and journalists often fall victim to the violence. The two leading Islamist militias, Al-Shabaab and Hizb-Al-Islam, are gradually seizing control of independent radio stations and using them to broadcast their religious and political propaganda.The temporary lifting of prior censorship on the print media in Sudan (172nd) was just a smokescreen. It has fallen 24 places and now has Africa’s second worst ranking, partly as a result of the closure of the opposition daily Rai-al-Shaab and the jailing of five members of its staff, but above all because of the return of state surveillance of the print media, which makes it impossible to cover key stories such as the future referendum on South Sudan’s independence.Rwanda (169th), where President Paul Kagame was returned to power in a highly questionable election, has fallen 12 places and now has Africa’s third worst ranking. The six-month suspension of leading independent publications, the climate of terror surrounding the presidential election and Umuvugizi deputy editor Jean-Léonard Rugambage’s murder in Kigali were the reasons for this fall. Journalists are fleeing the country because of the repression, in an exodus almost on the scale of Somalia’s.Surveillance of the press and a decline in the climate for journalists during the May elections account for Ethiopia’s continued bad ranking (139th). Violence against journalists, arbitrary police arrests and intelligence agency abuses explain why Nigeria (145th) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (148th) are still in the bottom third.Uganda (96th) fell a relatively modest 10 places but the murders of two journalists in separate incidents in September and the recent increase in physical attacks and arrests of journalists are fuelling serious concerns about the climate for the media in the run-up to next year’s elections. Cameroon (129th) fell 20 places as a result of newspaper editor Bibi Ngota’s death in prison and the continuing detention of two other editors. Côte d’Ivoire (118th) also fell a few places due to the harassment of newspapers such as L’Expression and Le Nouveau Courrier d’Abidjan and the temporary ban on local retransmission of French TV station France 24 in February.Gambia (125th) and Niger (104th) were neck and neck last year at a 137th and 139th thanks to the predatory behaviour of their respective presidents, Yahya Jammeh and Mamadou Tandja. But press freedom in Niger has improved markedly since Tandja’s overthrow in February, accounting for its 35-place jump, although the situation is still very uncertain. Uncertainty is also the dominant feature of another country in transition, Guinea (113th). It fell 13 places because of a massacre on 28 September 2009 but a new government that could show more respect for press freedom is still seen as a possibility.After two difficult years, Kenya (70th) has recovered a respectable position. Chad (112th) is also leaving behind the fraught period in 2008 when a state of emergency was imposed, but the level of freedom allowed the press is still insufficient. Angola (104th) has an acceptable ranking although the situation has been soured by a Radio Despertar journalist’s still unsolved murder in September 2010.After sharp falls in 2009, Gabon (107th) and Madagascar (116th) have recovered some of the lost ground thanks to a decline in tension. But Madagascar’s transitional authorities need to show more respect for the press by ceasing to jail journalists (such as those of Radio Fahazavana) and ceasing to close down news media. Zimbabwe (123rd) has again made some slow progress, as it did last year. The return of independent dailies is a step forward for public access to information but the situation is still very fragile.Two more African countries have entered the ranks of the world’s top 50 nations in terms of respect for press freedom. They are Tanzania (41st), although certain stories such as albinism continue to be off-limits for the press, and Burkina Faso (49th), even if justice still has not been rendered in the case of Norbert Zongo, a journalist who was murdered 12 years ago.The relative positions of the African countries in the top 50 have also changed. They are now led by Namibia (21st), which has recovered its former pre-eminent position, while Cape Verde (26th) has caught up with Ghana (26th) and Mali (26th). South Africa (38th) has fallen five places, in part because of attacks on journalists during the Football World Cup but above all because of the behaviour of senior members of the ruling African National Congress towards the press. ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, for example, expelled BBC correspondent Jonah Fisher from a news conference on 8 April, calling him a “bastard” and “bloody agent.” And the government plans to create a media tribunal and to pass a bill restricting the disclosure of information. Both projects would endanger press freedom.center_img June 8, 2021 Find out more Africa News Organisation RSF_en News October 20, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Five decades after independence, African journalists still seeking freedom June 10, 2021 Find out more June 7, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
