The proposal approved in CoA meeting regarding business class travel for all cricketers for their domestic flights on and off series,” Khanna is reported as saying.Earlier, Kapil Dev had suggested the BCCI to buy an aircraft for the team’s domestic travel. The former India captain has said the step will reduce travel time and resulting fatigue in amidst the team’s busy schedule. “Now that BCCI is making good money, it should have its own plane. It will save a lot of time and make life easier for Team India. The board can afford it. They should have done it five years ago,” Kapil had reportedly stated.“I would also love to see some cricketers buying their own aircrafts in the days to come. In the US, top golfers have their own planes. I don’t see any reason why our players can’t buy it as it will save them a lot of time.“I also believe that if BCCI owns planes, the players will get enough rest between matches. I am sure BCCI can also afford the parking charges,” said the World Cup-winning captain, adding that such a move will also generate a few more jobs.After beating New Zealand in the ODI and the T20I series, Kohli-led India is now scheduled to take on Sri Lanka for a three-match Test series.

This is the Most Powerful Blower.EGO Power+GrammarlyImprove Your Spelling With This Helpful Browser ExtensionGrammarlySuresh Raina issues statement after arrest, says the incident in Mumbai was ‘unintentional’“All of this is still fluid,” Stacey Allaster, the US Tennis Association’s chief executive for professional tennis, said in a telephone interview Saturday. “We have made no decisions at all.” With that caveat, Allaster added that if the USTA board does decide to go forward with the Open, she expects it to be held at its usual site and in its usual spot on the calendar. The main draw is scheduled to start August 31.“We continue to be, I would say, 150% focused on staging a safe environment for conducting a US Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York on our dates. It’s all I wake up —our team wakes up—thinking about,” Allaster said.“The idea of an alternative venue, an alternative date … we’ve got a responsibility to explore it, but it doesn’t have a lot of momentum.” An announcement should come from “mid-June to end of June,” Allaster said.All sanctioned competition has been suspended by the ATP, WTA and International Tennis Federation since March and is on hold until late July. The French Open was postponed from May to September; Wimbledon was canceled for the first time since 1945.There is no established COVID-19 protocol for tennis, a global sport with several governing bodies. “Everybody would agree to the fundamental principles, I’m sure: protecting the health of participants, following the local laws and minimising the risk of the transmission of the virus,” said Stuart Miller, who is overseeing the ITF’s return-to-tennis policy.“But then you have to get down into the specific details.” One such detail: The USTA wants to add locker rooms—including at indoor courts that housed hundreds of temporary hospital beds at the height of New York’s coronavirus outbreak—and improve air filtration in existing spaces. Also being considered: no locker-room access until just before a match. So if anyone goes to Flushing Meadows just to train, Allaster said, “You come, you practice, and return to the hotel.” The USTA presented its operational plan to a medical advisory group Friday; now that will be discussed with city, state and federal government officials.“The fundamental goal here is to mitigate risk,” Allaster said.Lew Sherr, the USTA’s chief revenue officer, said it is “less and less likely” spectators would be at the US Open this year.

Statistics: Heineken Cup’s most effective players

first_imgKICKINGWho kicked more ball in open play than anyone else? Dan Parks may not be a surprise list-topper, but Kahn Fotuali’i, who is known more as a runner than a punter, has put foot to ball more often than Ruan Pienaar. It’s little wonder that Northampton wanted his services so badly.DEFENCETackles madeIt would be expected that Sale Shark’s resident scavenger-in-chief David Seymour is topping tackling charts, but it is his partner-in-hits Chris Henry who is the headliner, defensively. He is playing in an already belligerent pack where Iain Henderson is skelping anything that picks up a ball, but the young flanker is still posting big numbers.This category is also scary reading for potential Six Nations carriers.Turnovers wonAgain, Chris Henry features, while backs Andrew Trimble and Nikola Matawalu jump onto the list. There is also expected appearances from the likes of Justin Tipuric, Thierry Dusautoir and Seymour.What no one would have expected is that Rory Best storms past everyone else. The Ulsterman is prolific.Of course, we should probably take a moment to point out that Chris Henry is the biggest offender in the competition, having given away seven penalties in the pool stages (He was joint-top, actually. Richard Hibbard, Wenceslas Lauret, Mauro Bergamasco, Mamuka ‘Gorgodzilla’ Gorgodze, Jamie Cudmore, Rob McCusker and Tom Hayes also gave away seven penalties, and even then, this is after we discounted every single prop. Collapsed scrums kind of mess up lists like these…) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Breaking clear: Napolioni Nalaga has been a stand out performer in this season’s Heineken CupBy Alan DymockMUCH LIKE younglings obeying a magical, umbrella-toting nanny, we have packed the Heineken Cup away in its box until March. We have no use for it when we have the all-singing, all-dancing Six Nations coming up.However, as much as we tuned in to the crashing, the banging and the walloping in order to entertain ourselves, it was serving several purposes. The Heineken Cup is, almost achingly, a spellbinding competition in its own right and for international coaches, on the judging panel, if you like, it is rugby’s equivalent of Strictly Come Dancing, a platform for the game’s elite operators.So when the Six Nations squads were announced it was assumed that the big dawgs in the big competition had shown enough of themselves to see them selected for the international squads. This is where Opta’s statistics come in to play. They can show who has been most effective in the Heineken Cup, and who merits their place, because of course, the stats don’t lie!ATTACKINGCarriesLooking at the stats, you can see why Declan Kidney has rewarded Jamie Heaslip. He is a man who offers himself up to carry as often as possible. The number of carries is obviously no indication of the quality of carry, but there is no surprise that workhorses Peter O’Mahony and Louis Picamoles are in the mix in as backrow operators of the highest order.Metres madeThis is perhaps were the effectiveness of the carry comes into play. Heaslip drops out of the top five, as does Picamoles and O’Mahony, though of course, all fare better in the tighter exchanges.The class of runner is more apparent, though. Napolioni Nalaga tops the list, having featured for his workrate above. His silky-smooth teammate Wesley Fofana is also prolific in terms of yardage, and who would have expected Eli Walker to be one of the Heineken’s most effective runners back in October?Defenders beatenNalaga is again in the mix, proving that he is a potent force in attack. However, the true shock is that Walker has danced past more would-be tacklers than any other in the pools with the Ospreys coming third in their pool. The national call up was no surprise.Welsh fans will also be happy to see try scorer Alex Cuthbert as one of the Heineken’s most evasive, alongside that man, Fofana. Clermont’s Fijian winger Napolioni Nalaga (C) jumps over tackles by Llanelli players during a European Cup rugby union match between ASM Clermont-Auvergne and Llanelli Scarlets at the Marcel Michelin stadium on October 13, 2012 in Clermont-Ferrand.

Australia adopts guidelines to enhance safety and minimize mismatches

first_imgFriday Feb 16, 2018 Australia adopts guidelines to enhance safety and minimize mismatches Rugby Australia have announced that they are to make significant changes to Junior and Senior rugby, adopting a Size for Age policy aimed at ensuring maximum safety and enjoyment for all participants. They will also introduce a Blue Card concussion management system.The new guidelines, similar to what New Zealand have in place at junior level, will enable individual players to be moved into a different age group following an assessment of physical and personal development factors including height, weight, playing experience, fitness and maturity.The current participation policy allows for a player to be moved across any one of four age grades (including their true age group, one age group below, or up to two age groups above their true age group).All Under 10 to Under 15 players deemed to be below or above an accepted height and weight range will now be subject to mandatory assessment by a qualified, independent Coach to determine which age bracket they are most suited to playing.Prior to the introduction of these guidelines, there was no standardised approach to mandating the assessment of individual players for size and age dispensation.The changes are being implemented in 2018 following an extensive research project conducted by Rugby Australia in partnership with Sydney Junior Rugby Union, Brumbies Rugby and the Australian Catholic University.The study, which has been completed over a two-year period, found that weight alone was not a strong enough factor to consider moving a player up or down in age group.BLUE CARD – concussion management tool for Junior, Schools and Senior RugbyAnother new change is the adoption of the Blue Card system, which was trialled in 2017. It will be rolled out across all competitions nationally in 2018.Team management, medical staff and match officials have always had the responsibility to remove a player from the field if they are presenting signs and symptoms of concussion. The new Blue Card ensures the recording of such an incident, and formally triggers an off-field process to begin.HOW IT WORKSOnce a player is shown a blue card by the match official, they cannot participate any further in the match and are required to undergo a mandatory medical assessment and then follow a set program before returning to Rugby.Rugby Australia Head of Rugby Services, Lachlan Clark said: “The Blue Card system will be in place across all Rugby nationally from under 13 to National Rugby Championship (NRC) level, enhancing Rugby’s commitment to protecting players from the rare occurrence of concussion. “There will be ongoing structured education of match officials, medical attendants, coaches and team managers in the signs and symptoms and management of concussion.  “Our commitment to protect players from head injuries is reinforced with strict high tackle laws with the understanding that the head is sacred across all levels of the game. The Blue Card system reinforces that player safety is paramount in our game.”The Size for Age Guidelines mean that we will no longer see these type of mismatches in AustraliaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

There will also self-test quizzes to test learning and a practical 1500 word assignment at the end of the course for those who wish to gain the certificate.The course is structured as follows:Week 1: What is Philanthropic Psychology and what value can the study of it offer fundraisers?Week 2: How can we define love in giving?Week 3: Who are your donors? How does people’s sense of who they are drive giving?Week 4: How does giving contribute to donors’ personal sense of wellbeing and how can we boost this?Week 5: What is the best way to talk to your donors in order to grow their capacity to love others?Week 6: How can you translate this knowledge into the design of a donor journey for your organisation, including thank-you communications, newsletters, upgrades and appeals?Week 7: How can you double, triple and quadruple giving as a consequence?Week 8: How does this way of thinking make a difference in how you think about your role as a fundraiser?The first class will begin on 13 January, and will be available four times a year.

Renovated wellness center hopes to prevent student stress

first_imgWorld Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution printEighty percent of college students feel overwhelmed by responsibilities, 50 percent feel so anxious they struggle in school, one in four students have diagnosable mental health issues and 40 percent do not seek help, according to National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). To help deal with this, the TCU Wellness Center reopened this fall with new outreach programs, peer educators and an updated space for students to study in. The new space has computers, desks, a Bluetooth TV and a whiteboard wall.The center was previously led by Dr. Kathy Cavins-Tull and is a new initiative on campus to promote students’ mental and physical well-being, said Yvonne Giovanis, assistant director of the Campus Recreation Department. Giovanis is now in charge of the center. Last year, the Wellness Center opened on campus after separating from Alcohol and Drug Education. The first year was a soft launch where they worked comprehensively with other departments on campus. However, they didn’t have their own outreach programs, peer educators or study spaces for students yet. Now the center houses faculty, full-time staff and student peer educators. The peer educators go to various places on campus and educate students about different aspects of health, said Jasmine Thompson, a senior peer educator. “College students have high-stress levels, and it’s a demographic where suicide is the highest,” she said. “Having a group of people who can reach students and help prevent them from committing suicide or reduce cases of depression is key.”The peer educators also do outreach events in the Campus Commons, Brown-Lupton University Union and residence halls, said Jena Littlefield, a sophomore peer educator. One outreach event they do is called the Wellness Wheel. “We spin the wellness wheel to engage students in [wellness] topics,” she said. “We spin it and it lands on a topic of questions that we ask the students about.”Thompson said the outreach events are cool and different from other resources on campus like the Counseling & Mental Health Center or Campus Life because its goal is to prevent issues instead of reacting to them. Additionally, students go onto campus to educate peers instead of full-time staff and faculty.“We try to educate students on the front end of their experience and maybe catch them before they get stressed at midterms or finals,” Giovanis said.The center is located in the basement of the University Recreation Center and free for students to enjoy.For more information, visit this link. </p><section></section><section></section><section></section><section></section><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div class=”riddle_target” data-rid-id=”126059″ data-fg=”#1486CD” data-bg=”#FFFFFF” style=”margin: 0 auto; max-width: 100%; width: 640px;” data-auto-scroll=”true”><script src=””></script><br /><iframe style=”width: 100%; height: 300px; border: 1px solid #cfcfcf;” src=””></p><section><h2>TCU Wellness Quiz</h2><div>The renovated Wellness Center educates students on preventative techniques to benefit campus wellness.
