The Matt Toomua Falcon against the All Blacks

first_imgTuesday Aug 20, 2013 The Matt Toomua Falcon against the All Blacks As seen in the match highlights on Sunday, Matt Toomua’s Wallaby debut will be remembered as a 47-29 loss to the All Blacks, and for a rather comical moment midway through the first half that resulted in him face down in the turf. Ironically it’s the Australian’s that love the good old Falcon – when a ball hits a player on the head – but it was one of their own on the receiving end after New Zealand scrumhalf Aaron Smith failed to get any height on a clearing kick.In fact if Toomua had gone for a proper charge down, rather than turn his back on it, a try might have been the result. It summed things up on a night when nothing went right for the hosts.Quade Cooper, who Toomua was picked ahead of, found it quite amusing from the bench, although in fairness neither player impressed on what was a rough night in Sydney.All Blacks coach Steve Hansen had a dig at Wallaby counterpart Ewen McKenzie after the game, hinting that he himself probably isn’t sure where to turn ahead of Saturday’s Wellington game.“I felt both of them went OK. Both of them are good players,” Hansen said of Toomua and Cooper, the latter having been booed by New Zealand fans for the last few years.“I don’t pick the Australian teams. I think they are both good players, but I am just happy I have got Dan Carter and Aaron Cruden… and Beauden Barrett for that matter.“All five of those people are all very good rugby players, and four of them are New Zealanders.”You can view more classic falcons in the Related Posts below the videoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies , The Rugby Championship Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Walking down a Midosuji main street to the area with mid-to-high-rise residential and commercial buildings, suddenly a residential area filled densely with two storey wooden houses appeared. YMT-house is located in this area and measures just 49.5 square meter with 4m open width and 11m depth. In this limited condition, the client firstly required spacious living room for family of four, and then private rooms, enough storage, and the rooftop. To enrich and enhance life style while meeting all these requirements, the project focuses on the scale difference between each room. Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoBathroom is located on the ground floor and the living room is on the first and above floor. There is about 1.4m height difference between living room and dinging and kitchen space on the first floor which gradually divide one LDK into two separate space. Step-wise floor in the middle of the room create variety of sight view and it can be used as playground or multi-functional activity space for kids bringing excitement in daily life. A bed room above LDK is just three tatami-mat with storage, and kids’ room is about four tatami-mat with furnished desks and beds for two. To minimizing each private room by furnishing vertical storage enable create spacious LDK features open ceiling, where family gathered.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoHalf of the upper part of the bed room is a combination storage and study room, the rest of space provide staircase to rooftop. Instead of having handrail, the extended wall creates enclosed space which promote smooth visual axis to the sky while shutting out from gaze of others.

This staircase is not only functioned as a vertical moving line but also provide enclosed space for reading books or having a break. Like a furniture, step-wise floor at the living room and other private rooms including bed room, kids’ room, and study room are made with Japanese cypress where it could get direct contact with the skin.

Many of the FTSE 100 companies have announced such systems, but the response has been international.Publisher Pearson Group will match all donations made by Rough Guides’ readers before 31 January 2005. Advertisement Tagged with: Research / statisticscenter_img Liverpool-based payroll giving and corporate donation management agency Charities Trust moved quickly to offer an online donation system that enabled companies to track and match employees’ online gifts. The system, created by technology consultancy Chapter Eight Ltd was set up within an hour. Employers simply had to email a Web address to their staff, who could then donate tax-efficiently online. The first company to adopt it was a large multinational which are using it all over the world, to co-ordinate their corporate giving and track payment amounts. Chapter Eight donated their fees to the emergency appeal.In Canada, aluminium and packaging company Alcan Inc is matching donations by its 88,000 strong worldwide workforce.In Mexico, cement and ready-mix products producer CEMEX has offered to match two-for-one any contributions made by its employees, with a minimum corporate contribution of $2 million.In the USA, Starbucks Corp is matching emplyee donations, and expects to make total donations, including a percentage from sales of a Sumatran coffee, of at least $1 million. At Intel Corporation, the response was rapid: after its foundation announced it would match employee donations, employees donated $200,000 within a day.General Motors, through its foundation, will match up to $1 million in contributions made by GM employees.Indeed in the USA, it looks likely that the scale of corporate support for the tsunami disaster appeals will be second only to the sector’s donations to the post 11 September 2001 emergency appeals, which totalled $410 million. According to the Associated Press, in just over a week, at least 142 U.S. companies have publicly announced $182.7 million in donations or pledges to assist tsunami victims. This sum consists of $89.9 million in cash, $25.8 million in matched funds, and at least $55 million in products and services.

Coronavirus sees two-thirds of charities change how they communicate with supporters

first_img Melanie May | 6 July 2020 | News Coronavirus sees two-thirds of charities change how they communicate with supporters Tagged with: regular giving research AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Lockdown has seen two-thirds (67%) of charities surveyed by Rapidata change the way they communicate with supporters, with use of digital rising sharply and 49% saying they expect to continue using channels they hadn’t used before in the future.The findings are among those revealed in a new report from Rapidata, released today during Fundraising Convention. For the report, Rapidata questioned charities on their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic, specifically around regular giving and how they had adapted their fundraising.It found that, among the charities surveyed, communications saw a general shift from donor acquisition to supporter stewardship, with a big rise in the use of digital, and increased impact reporting and thanking.Key survey findings:67% of charity respondents changed how they communicate with regular giving supporters during lockdown.Use of digital: 71% increased their use of social media, followed by email (62%), online advertising and online virtual events (both 46%). The latter also saw the biggest increase in first time use, at 16% of respondents.A quarter (24%) increased their use of the telephone to thank supporters and reinvigorate relationships.Social media, additional impact reporting and thank you mailings were the top three activities used to tackle attrition.Almost a quarter of charities (24%) pre-empted cancellations by offering payment options such as skipping a month, taking a holiday or reducing their gift.The most successful channels for recruiting regular supporters during lockdown were social media, email and online advertising,The most successful channels for stewardship were email, direct mail, and telephone.Almost half (49%) expect to continue using channels they hadn’t used before lockdown.75% expect to continue their increased use of digital.Barriers to digital uptake remain: 23% would like to make more use of digital but lack the skills or resources, while 17% are impeded by lack of budget.Survey responses were received from 87 charities of all sizes. The highest proportion came from London and the South East, followed by Midlands and South West, with causes ranging from children and young people, to hospices, religious causes, animal welfare, and the environment.As well as asking participants to share how they reacted to lockdown, and to the initial recovery phase of lockdown easing, Rapidata also asked about the strategies implemented to drive donations, mitigate attrition and protect regular giving income, and for their thoughts on the future of regular giving.In addition, the report, Navigating Times of Crisis to Protect Regular Giving, includes interviews and case studies from senior fundraisers at charities including ClientEarth, Marie Curie, Pancreatic Cancer UK, Prostate Cancer UK, Starlight Children’s Foundation, and WaterAid. There is also a section on lessons for the future along with a practical checklist to help charities prepare for future crises.Scott Gray, Rapidata lead, and head of payments for The Access Group, commented,“The past few months have been wrought with challenges for the charity sector. Although it’s been immensely encouraging to find regular supporters mostly sticking with their chosen charities despite their own difficulties. And to see charities themselves innovating and adjusting their strategies to reach out and deepen those vital relationships.”“To protect regular giving for the future, an increased and dedicated focus on supporter centricity and strategic diversification will be essential. Part of this is innovative approaches coupled with greater investment in digital transformation. While we all hope to avoid another pandemic, what’s certain is that other crises and recessions will occur. It’s critical then that charities prepare for this by learning from others’ experiences and taking action to mitigate future risk.” Advertisement Watch Scott Gray talk about the report’s findingscenter_img  702 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4  701 total views,  2 views today The report is available as a free download, which goes live today during the IoF’s Fundraising Convention Online.

US court rules that Jack and Sarah can stay in Limerick

first_imgAdvertisement JACK and Sarah Corbett are to remain in the guardianship of their aunt after a US Superior Court Judge rejected an appeal by the estranged wife of murdered Limerick man Jason Corbett to gain custody of his children.The 39-year-old Janesboro native died last August from fatal head injuries he received in a domestic incident at the home he shared with Molly Martens in North Carolina.Ms Martens, who married Mr Corbett following the death of his first wife Mags in 2006, is a person of interest in the police investigation into her husband’s death. Her father, Thomas Martens, is also listed as a person of interest.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up 11 year-old Jack and eight-year-old Sarah, who ate Mr Corbett’s children from his first marriage, were at the centre of a bitter custody battle which resulted in his sister Tracey Lynch and her husband David being recognised as their lawful guardians.Molly Martens then lodged an appeal to the Superior Court challenging the guardianship arrangement outlined in her husband’s will.This was rejected on Tuesday night by Superior Court Judge Ted Royster who said that the District Court was correct in ruling to grant guardianship to David and Tracey Lynch.In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Ms Martens again took to Facebook, as she regularly does, and directed messages at the young children.“Our lives do not matter in the eyes of the law,” she posted adding that “what matters, in the eyes of the law, is that I do not share your blood and I am not listed as your guardian on a document created before I met you. I am heartbroken, and devastatingly sorry.”However the facebook page “Bring Justice for Jason” carried a message on behalf of the Corbett family, stating that “Jack and Sarah can continue to be brought up in a safe and loving environment in accordance with their Daddy’s wishes.” Email NewsUS court rules that Jack and Sarah can stay in LimerickBy Staff Reporter – December 10, 2015 1067 Linkedin WhatsAppcenter_img Facebook Twitter Print Previous articleSoccer – Limerick FC U/19’s to face Cork City in FinalNext articleJapanese restaurant gutted in Limerick fire Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more
