Five things we learnt about Wales – Round Three

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Crowning glory: Wales’ goalkicker Leigh Halfpenny and captain Sam Warburton with the Triple CrownObsession with the 12 channelWales have had enormous success targeting the 12 channel over the past 18 months. There are few international outside-halves and inside-centres who are able to cope with the repeated heavy carrying of Jamie Roberts. Yet Wales’ repeated use of this tactic on Saturday verged on OCD (Obsessive Centre Deployment). Roberts carried the ball down the central channel four times in the first 12 minutes, where he was met with the more than able defensive pairing of Owen Farrell and Brad Barritt. It’s not that Roberts didn’t make yardage, he did; but there are hard yards and there are smashing your head against reinforced concrete yards. It’s little wonder he didn’t come out for the second half.Whilst the policy of hitting the 10-12 channel with Roberts is understandable, continuing with the same tactics when Scott Williams took the field was not. It seemed as though this offensive pattern had been devised in anticipation of Charlie Hodgson and Owen Farrell playing at 10 and 12 respectively, and hadn’t changed to allow for a change in the English defensive line. In light of the English re-shuffle, a policy of attacking the 13 channel may have been more fruitful; Manu Tuilagi’s strengths lie in going forwards, not backwards Wales struggled in the narrow channelsThe English defence in the narrow channels was first class and it restricted Wales’ ability to get over the gain-line. This will come as no surprise to anyone who watches the Aviva Premiership. The ruck defence in England’s top flight is second to none; it is where much of the division’s rugby is played. Indeed you could play some Aviva Premiership games on a credit card signature strip, such is the desire to keep things tight. Strangely, Wales played to England’s strengths. Instead of implementing some ‘widening’ plays to stretch the English defensive line, they repeatedly executed ‘narrowing’ patterns and lost valuable yards in the tackle as result. In fact, the English ruck defence was so effective it restricted the entire Welsh pack to a combined ball-carrying distance of just 67 yards. That is their lowest total of the championship so far. NOT FOR FEATURED He’s the man: Scott Williams dives over for the decisive try against England at TwickenhamBy Paul WilliamsWALES beat England 19-12 to clinch the Triple Crown on Saturday – the first time Wales have ever completed their sweep of the home nations at Twickenham. Here’s the lowdown on the good, and not so good, of their performance. Stay tuned for more Welsh analysis as the championship reaches its climax next month…Eight seconds that won the gameScott Williams has played well for Wales over the past six months and has shown moments of quality. He has executed important tackles, carried the ball well, made clean line breaks and scored some important tries. However, he has never shown his entire skill-set in one game. On Saturday he showed it all in eight seconds. It was a glorious passage of Six Nations rugby. His rip and strip embarrassed the muscular Lawes (Courtney would be well advised to drink a few more of those protein shakes that he endorses), whilst his positionally aware grubber, searing pace and calm two-handed take will live long in the memory. Williams also opted to finish his try with an elegant swallow dive; it’s the first time Twickenham has seen that manoeuvre for quite some time. Clever when down to 14 menWales concede more points when they have a player in the sin-bin than any other team in the Six Nations. On average they concede just over seven points every time they are down to 14 men. And when Rhys Priestland was yellow-carded in the 44th minute, it looked as though England would stretch their three-point lead, particularly when you consider Wales had lost their outside-half and no one amongst the remaining 14 had any experience of playing ten at regional, let alone Test level. But Wales were very clever. Having effectively given England a ten-minute overlap, they kept the ball safe and tight. Their neat pod work allowed them to build a 21-phase set and they spent an incredible five minutes of the sin-binning camped between the halfway line and England’s 22.  When the sin-bin clock finally turned to zero, Wales’ net point loss was exactly the same. It was very impressive; in fact Wales’ work with 14 men was more memorable than some of their work with 15. Distraught: Rhys Priestland was sin-binnedShallow kicking anglesWales have struggled with their kicking. The goalkicking percentages have on occasions fallen well below the requisite 75% demanded at international level. It is therefore unfortunate that on the day Wales converted 83% of their kicks from the tee, their kicking from hand could have been their undoing. Rhys Priestland’s clearance kick in the 43rd minute could have cost Wales the game. It provided the Mouritz Botha with a simple charge down that resulted in Wales conceding three points and losing their outside-half to the sin-bin for ten minutes.It’s not a problem that solely affects Wales. The modern game places a premium on distance from both line and tactical kicking; it has created a launch profile that is lower and longer, yet easier to charge down. It’s something that the Welsh team need to address, as shallow kicking angles in the 22 also produce shallow heart beats in their supporters.last_img read more

A message for the brown kids

first_imgQ WidemanWW photo: Brenda RyanThis is for the brown kids.This is for the free and reduced breakfast club.This is for my loudmouth fistfighters.My under-the-covers-reading all-nighters.My late-shift-working in-class nappers.My back-of-the-classroom rappers.My mother-tongue-speaking back-talkers.My always-finding-death-threats in their lockers.My always-late-to-class little sibling caretakers.My smartass saggy-pants troublemakers.My brown genderqueer hip-switchers.My test-anxiety-prone class-skippers.My outside-agitator walkout organizers.This is for my never-meant-to survivors.In kindergarten, I already knew not to go anywhere unless I was sure there wouldn’t be a check-in.I was always too chicken to speak to the men with guns on their hips.And slurs in their snarling lips and I didn’t even goto a school where they met me at the door.So I’m gonna try to compute just how much more afraid I’d be today if thefirst school club I was introduced towas a billy club.I’ll try to raise the number of panic attacks I’ve had this year to the power ofpepper spray, taser, glocks, handcuffs and a badge.I’ll try to multiply my fear by the number of kids who look like me who had their faces slammed into pavement last semester.And I know I haven’t been good at math since I was told I was a poor tester.But something about the trauma of going to school under occupation seemsto add up to walking outwith less capacity to trustthan we walked in with.To fear and resistance to authority.To hyperactivity and needing to get free.Critical Thinking Question: Why were the millions of dollars Wake County [N.C.] spent on police station contracts and security guards somehow easier to budget than even half the recommended number of counselors?Answer: Because our minds are worth more to them terrified than understood.See, our schools might look like prisons, but the bars aren’t for keeping us in; they’re for pushing us out.Our schools are factories producing marketable products,not making good citizens, but punishing manufactured misconduct.There are more of my people incarcerated today than there were slaves in 1850 and black students in Wake County account for 60% of suspensions because their definition of defiance is “looking kinda shifty.”Schools claim to be invested in teaching critical thinking but from us brown kids, asking questions equals dissension which leads to detention, suspension, and apprehension by state henchmen with the intention to arrest.So ask us again why we don’t feel like participating in class discussion.We dare you.Ask us why we’d rather spend 90 minutes in a bathroom stall or wandering empty halls than in your classrooms.We know that when we ask questionswe scare you.You thought you were ready for us.You’d already bought us jumpsuitsinstead of graduation gowns.You’d even opened up a whole new prisonby shutting some arts programs down.You thought you were ready for us.Us brown kids?We’re ready for you, tooWe are:Healing our black eyes inpeer mediation sessionsChanneling Laila Ali inSecond Round Boxing lessonsWe are:Staying up all night readingMichelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow,comprehending all kinds of things we werenever supposed to know.We are:Working the late shift paying billsto stay alive,even though we know we were nevermeant to survive.We are:Rapping about restorative justiceand letting our spirits soar,spittin’ about the day when Central Prisonis no more.We are:standing together, from AP Englishto ISS to alternative schools toCentral Prison.We are:teaching you a lesson, and this timeyou’re gonna have to listen to us,the brown kids,the kids from the back of the bus. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Review: ‘Mid90s’ shows Jonah Hill’s solid grip in directorial debut

first_imgTV Review: Netflix’s new show doesn’t lecture viewers about sex Linkedin ReddIt Twitter Richard Edgemon Review: ‘First Reformed’ beautifully wrestles with faith and sacrifice Listen: Frogflix (Season 2): Episode 14 Richard Edgemon printIn his first time directing a feature film, Jonah Hill has created a powerful and emotionally resonant story that lingers with the viewer long after the credits have rolled.The film follows Stevie (Sunny Suljic) as he finds a group of friends and his identity through the skateboarding scene in California in the mid-1990s as the title would suggest.Although the film does revolve around skateboarding, even including a video shot with a fisheye lens that is so common from that era of skateboard videos, the film’s true goal is to use skateboarding as an entry point into the lives of Stevie and his friends as they transition from childhood to adulthood.Revelations of child abuse, violence, addiction and friendship becoming resentment are some of the topics that become integral to the tension of the film, but Hill almost never comes out and states them through a character’s dialogue. Instead, many times the trauma or issue is hinted at through the character visually.The best example of both Hill’s talent as a director and the actor’s ability to express deep and complex characterizations comes from Lucas Hedges’ performance of Stevie’s brother Ian. There are several times throughout the film that Hedges’ reactions to other characters dominated the scene; I couldn’t look away as I watched waves of emotions cycle across his face in realistic and haunting fashion.Another real stand out in the film is real life pro-skater Na-Kel Smith. In Smith’s first film, he gives a realism to the skating that no one else in the film really provides, along with a desire for success and determination.Hill really focuses on the performances from the actors, choosing to favor close-ups for most of the film, and with the three by four standard definition aspect ratio that would have been used in the 1990s, there is nothing to look at other than the actor’s face.In those long, close-up shots, Hill’s writing truly shines. In those moments the script gives the audience enough details about the character’s life but leaves the most horrific portions out allowing the audience to imagine those events just as other characters would have to do in the context of the film. Richard Edgemon Richard Edgemon Review: ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ tells a meandering story with stunning visuals, anime action Verdict 9.5/10Overall this is an excellent film with deeply emotionally resonating performances that stay with you long after the film is over. Hill shows his understanding of story and tone with a dark film that gives some resolution but never even approaches a fairy tale or saccharine ending, opting instead for a bittersweet ending that highlights the realistic perspective of the film. Some of the editing is choppy at the beginning of the film, but as the story focuses in on the main characters and their relationships, as does the editing. Between Hill’s writing and directing, it is unclear which aspect is the key factor in this film. I eagerly await his next project. + posts Linkedin Review: ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ has a striking visual style but fails to excite or enthrall Twitter Previous articleMegyn Kelly under criticism after defending blackfaceNext articleGas leak repaired: King Family Commons cleared after evacuation Richard Edgemon RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Richard Edgemon Facebook Facebook Editorial: Students returned to campus.

Guest speakers included Congresswoman Judy Chu, State Assemblyman Chris Holden, Pasadena City College Superintendent-President Rajen Vurdien and Art Center College of Design President Dr. Lorne Buchman. The occasion highlighted the importance of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) and encouraged educators, business and civic leaders. to collaborate and share resources.STEAM:CODERS teaches underrepresented and underserved students the fundamentals of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) in preparation for academic and career opportunities. A significant number of students reside in homes without computers or internet connectivity. These factors, among other socio-economic challenges, create major obstacles to student achievement. STEAM:CODERS provides disadvantaged students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in the hyper-tech 21st Century – all while making STEAM fun. We want students to imagine the unimaginable.Despite all the buzz about the dominance of STEM/STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) and computer science in school curricula, not everyone is participating – and benefitting – to the fullest extent. Recent statistics indicate that African-Americans, Latinos and females are vastly underrepresented in STEAM education programs and the related workforce. In 2013, only 3.7 percent of African American and 8.1 percent of Latino students sat for the Advanced Placement Computer Science exam. This is troubling since the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that approximately half of all U.S. jobs in STEAM competencies involve computing proficiency. This significant achievement gap in computer science and math for students of color creates an obstacle in overall academic performance and future employment. As a result, students miss out on countless academic and career opportunities.Pasadena has a wealth of internationally-recognized institutions; Art Center College of Design, Caltech, Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL), Huntington Library and more. However, many local students have not been exposed to these landmarks. In order to better prepare students for academic and career opportunities, STEAM:CODERS is committed to providing students with access to these facilities, instruction and mentoring. Using a curriculum that is age and grade appropriate, students engage in a variety of modules (i.e., Robotics, Mobile App Development, Video Game Development and Cyber Security). A goal of STEAM:CODERS is to make science, technology, engineering, art and math fun and engaging, with the hope that the excitement of learning computer science, creating games, apps and other useful materials – in combination with targeted field trips – will ignite a fire for learning and achievement.Currently, STEAM:CODERS serves over 550 students in Southern California (Pasadena, Altadena, Los Angeles, Inglewood and Claremont/Pomona). In 2016, STEAM:CODERS plans to partner with the after-school arm of the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD), Pasadena LEARNS, to offer STEAM offerings to PUSD students. Partners include the Art Center College of Design, Harvey Mudd College, California Institute of Technology, Idealab, Innovate Pasadena, Pasadena City College, USC Rossier School of Education and La Salle High School.

Jyske Bank Selects IDEMIA to Introduce the First Recycled Plastic Payment Card in Denmark

first_img Twitter Pinterest COURBEVOIE, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021– IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, has signed a four-year agreement with Jyske Bank, the second-largest Danish-owned bank, for the rollout of recycled PVC cards to its customers, as part of the bank’s environmental commitments. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: (Photo: Business Wire) With ecological considerations becoming increasingly important, Jyske Bank is committed to offer its customers greener, state-of-the-art payment solutions, starting with the launch of the first recycled plastic payment card in Denmark in partnership with IDEMIA. This announcement is in line with the bank’s vision: ‘ Make a difference’ – ‘ Gør en forskel.’ Jyske Bank aims to reduce its impact on the environment thanks to GREENPAY, IDEMIA’s eco-friendly initiative which aims to move away from today’s linear take-make-waste model and fundamentally rethink the way we design, use and reuse plastics. Selected for its innovative and customer-centric approach, IDEMIA is capitalizing on its expertise, and delivering on its promise for secure and environmentally friendly payment. IDEMIA’s GREENPAY card is made of over 85% recycled PVC derived from production waste. This innovative payment card allows a responsible use of resources without compromising on quality or security. Plastic recycling is beneficial in many ways (including C0² emission reduction) and one of the most significant impacts is industrial waste reduction versus first-use materials. The move to recycled PVC payment cards avoids the creation of thousands of tons of first-use PVC, and stops thousands of tons of used PVC going into landfill. We give a new life to what is already there, and avoid creating what we don’t want. Available to the bank’s staff since November 2020, this new offer confirms Jyske Bank’s involvement for a more innovative and virtuous financial sector. IDEMIA’s Executive VP Financial Institutions Amanda Gourbault said : “We are proud to accompany Jyske Bank on the path to delivering a sustainable payment experience to their customers with the first recycled plastic payment card in Denmark. We are excited to be able to accompany them in their eco-friendly strategy and look forward to continuing to supporting them with new and exciting products and services. With the recent expansions to our GREENPAY offer, this new partnership now widens the opportunities for a greener payment industry.” Anders Dam, CEO of Jyske Bank said: “When it comes to sustainable transition, we at Jyske Bank are of the opinion that all progress counts. Therefore, we are continuously looking for business partners and suppliers who can help us make a difference to our clients and as regards the bank’s direct and indirect carbon footprint. IDEMIA is driven by a strong vision in this area, and we have high hopes of our co-operation.” -END- About IDEMIA IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, provides a trusted environment enabling citizens and consumers alike to perform their daily critical activities (such as pay, connect and travel), in the physical as well as digital space.
