LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Rugby World Cup has provided some of sport’s most iconic television moments of recent decades and – alongside live coverage of the FIFA World Cup, England football internationals, UEFA Champions League and The FA Cup – it is a key part of ITV1’s commitment to high quality live sport.”Rugby World Cup 2011, the seventh RWC, kicks off in New Zealand on September 9 and will feature the top 20 teams in the world competing across 48 tournament matches. The final will be played on October 23, 2011 at Auckland’s iconic Eden Park Stadium. Rugby World Cup Limited (RWCL) has announced that ITV has been awarded the UK Broadcast rights for Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand and Host Broadcast rights for Rugby World Cup 2015 in England. The announcement follows a rigorous process managed by RWCL’s exclusive commercial agents IMG throughout June and July during which five parties submitted bids in response to the tender and subsequent shortlist process for the UK broadcast rights. Under the terms of the new deal, ITV will broadcast live coverage of every match from the 2011 tournament in New Zealand and the 2015 tournament in England. All matches will also be shown online at ITV.com with the deal also encompassing highlights and clips packages on television, online and mobile.ITV has a long association with the Rugby World Cup, having broadcast every tournament since 1991. A UK audience of 15 million viewers watched on ITV1 as Jonny Wilkinson’s dramatic extra time drop goal secured England the Webb Ellis Cup in 2003. Four years later, a UK audience of 16 million watched as England finished runners up to South Africa in France.Mike Miller, RWCL Managing Director, said: “ITV and RWCL have enjoyed a long working partnership. Through its commitment to the sport and exceptional production values ITV has played a central role in the promotion and growth of Rugby and Rugby World Cup in the United Kingdom and we are looking forward to extending that fruitful partnership over the next two RWC tournaments.” Niall Sloane, ITV Controller of Sport, said: “ITV has a long association with Rugby World Cup and we are delighted to have secured the next two Rugby World Cups free-to-air for ITV’s viewers, particularly as the 2015 tournament takes place in England.”

The campaign will encourage individuals to contact their Senators in support of amendments to CSA that would better safeguard privacy. The Stop Cyber Spying coalition supports an amendment from Senators Al Franken and Rand Paul that would ensure companies do not have new, overboard authority to monitor and block private communications.The coalition also opposes attempts to remove privacy protections in the bill, including any amendments that would hand the reins of America’s cybersecurity systems to a secretive military intelligence agency like the NSA, which is not accountable to the public for what it does with our private data. Last April, a similar coalition joined forces for the original Stop Cyber Spying campaign, a week of action in opposition to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, otherwise known as CISPA. Ultimately, CISPA passed the House of Representatives, but not before major outcry that helped lead to substantial privacy improvements, a veto threat from the White House, and a significant number of “no” votes on a bill that previously looked poised to sail through with little opposition. The Stop Cyber Spying campaign now hopes to beat back floor amendments to the CSA that could make the bill look more like CISPA.The Twitter hashtag for the campaign is #DefendPrivacy.

One of the worst performing markets—Atlantic City—is predicted to have 2 percent depreciation.“Appreciation in Boston is expected to continue to accelerate going from 6.5 percent during the last update pushing to close to 8 percent during this update,” Fox said. “Also, we see some softening in South Florida with many of these markets along the Southeast coast to have their forecast appreciation 1 percent to 2 percent lower than during the last quarterly update.”He continued to say that the effects of the recent Hurricanes are still being assessed, but in the next quarter forecast, Veros should be able to begin to see this impact.

That was the main theme to emerge from the annual Chartered Institute ofPersonnel and Development (CIPD) Reward Conference which took place last weekin London. Addressing delegates at the conference, CIPD assistant director-generalDuncan Brown said that too many employees rely on colleagues and the company‘grapevine’ to find out about changes in benefits and rewards. “This is an issue that HR needs to pick up on. Staff have got tounderstand about pay and reward issues so they can make decisions about their‘conditions of association’ with the company. “We have to provide this missing link so employees actually understandwhat is happening to them and how it relates to the organisation.” Brown said the goal for HR was to enhance employees’ perceived value of whattheir benefits and rewards are worth, without increasing costs and at the sametime avoiding the downside of administrative complexities. He pinpointed flexible benefit schemes as an increasingly popular area, butwarned that employers should undertake a feasibility study and build a businesscase before implementing such a scheme. He went on to say that reward practices are more likely to evolve ratherthan radically change, and many professionals were responding to the challenge”slowly and carefully”. The CIPD also announced it is to create a Certificate in Reward Management,recognising that reward has established itself as a specialist subject in itsown right within HR. Mark Childs, CIPD vice-president reward, said: “It limits the opportunityfor reward to be hijacked by number crunchers and invites generalists to acceptthat having some basic competency in reward management is an essential elementin being a well-rounded HR professional.” By Mike Berry Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

The shared student house of Nouri Verghese, the Oxford Union’s treasurer-elect, was broken into and burgled over the Christmas vacation.The students returned in the new year to find the locks of their St Clements’ house had been broken. They entered to see that bicycles, clothes and televisions were missing. The stolen goods were worth an estimated £3000-4000. There have been no police charges for the burglary.Last week one of the house’s windows was smashed in, and a few days later Verghese claims to have seen a man stalking around outside the property before leaving.Verghese said he was “understandably feeling pretty pissed off.” 78 burglaries of shared accommodations in the Oxford area were reported to the Thames Valley Police over the winter vacation period.Verghese advised other students living-out to “make sure all locks are good. If they’re not, change them or get your landlord to change them.”A crime prevention adviser for the police service suggested that all students “take high-value goods home with them at the end of term.”He also highlighted the importance of insurance for all properties, and recommended students to read over the terms of their policy.“Most insurance companies specify that you must have a lock on your bedroom door, even if you are in a shared house.”Student houses are widely believed to be more at risk of burglary than other properties, with one Home Office Report claiming that one in ten students in the UK had had their house broken into, and another that one in three students are at some point a victim of crime. “It’s no surprise…Students own more expensive goods per head than the rest of the population,” said the report.
Can they really do better than that? Because they sound pretty damn good already. Check out the U.K. trailer for the highly-anticipated film adaptation of The Last Five Years, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. After watching the two of them get it on on a moving vehicle, we now have a look at even more numbers from the Jason Robert Brown tuner’s leap to the screen, including “I’m Still Hurting,” “Moving Too Fast” and “A Summer in Ohio.” And look out for Broadway fave and L5Y alum Betsy Wolfe as the “former stripper” and a certain Tony-winning composer on piano! The Last Five Years will premiere in the U.S. on February 13, 2015 (a day earlier than initially reported). View Comments
Matt Kulp, a senior biologist for the National Park Service (NPS), stood alongside members of the Little River, Great Smoky Mountains, and Clinch Mountain chapters of Trout Unlimited as they donned wading gear, put on hats, and applied sunscreen. Surprisingly, they’d left their fishing gear at home. Nevertheless, the anglers hoped to land thousands of brook trout by assisting NPS employees in a field test of a stream in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP).Kulp and his assistants were preparing to test the results of an effort to restore native brook trout to Lynn Camp Prong, a mid-sized trout stream in the GSMNP. At some point in the past, a well-meaning but ignorant individual transplanted a number of rainbow trout into the stream. The transplanted trout thrived and quickly began crowding out the native brook trout.As early as 2005, Park officials began trying to uproot the rainbows. After electro-shocking the rainbows proved ineffective, NPS employees shocked brookies instead, moved them out of the stream and into adjacent streams within the park, and then released the fish-killing chemical antimycin into Lynn Camp Prong. Officials were convinced that such drastic action was the only way they could be certain that the invasive rainbow trout would not return.By 2010, officials believed that all the rainbows had been extirpated from the stream. They then painstakingly moved nearly 1,000 native brookies from their temporary homes back to Lynn Camp Prong. Workers captured the fish and walked them in buckets outfitted with aeration pumps back to the stream. When all was said and done, the brookies proved to be in even greater abundance than the rainbows found here earlier.Lynn Camp Prong is ideal for brookies and a boon for trout anglers. “Many of our brook trout streams are at high elevations that are more susceptible to acid deposition, so this lower elevation segment will provide better buffering capacity against acid rain for years to come,” says Kulp. The Lynn Camp project reconnects some tributaries, such as Marks Creek, Indian Flats Prong, and Panther Creek that now also have brook trout in them, and it will also supply fish downstream to Thunderhead Prong.Reopening Lynn Camp Prong was a significant milestone. It marks the first time that every stream in the park was open to fishing and harvest since the park’s inception in 1936.
continue reading » Your loan officers perform a complex and critical function for your credit union. They must be experts on the full suite of loans you offer, know qualifying requirements and assess the financial condition and overall risk of the applicant. Their work, if done properly, generates significant revenue for your organization, so it’s important to give them the support they need. Here are five common hurdles CU loan officers face and how you can help eliminate them.Signing the right forms. Your CU likely offers a range of loans, each requiring specific forms that relate to the type of loan. Those requirements change enough over time that it can be daunting for a loan officer to keep current. Your credit union lending software should allow for customization or grouping of forms per loan type. This takes the stress away from loan officers needing to remember what forms are required for each loan.Override Required. In many credit unions, there are fail safes in place to protect the CU from loan officers granting loans without manager approval. This is a smart way to protect the integrity of the institution, but can also create bottlenecks in the process if the approving manager is not on site at all times. Your credit union lending software should allow for remote overrides. This enables loan officers to submit the override request when the proper authority isn’t in the branch, and the override can be approved remotely from another branch. 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
