LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Sale Sharks School run: Pozniak attacking for Manchester Grammar (pic by Eugene Pozniak) Sevens. The nemesis of a lock. We lanky, gangly and distinctly uncoordinated second-rows are not built for the sport designed to bring more exhaustion than a full 80 minutes, more sprinting than we do in a season, and all the handling that we spend eight months a year trying to avoid. For some, Rosslyn Park is a haven on the outskirts of the bustling metropolis, but for some of us it is hell on earth. That said, with the likes of Brodie Retallick and Maro Itoje revolutionising the role of the second-row, sevens presents the perfect opportunity to develop my ‘all-court’ game.Modern lock: Maro Itoje in training with EnglandBuild-upDue to our success in the Lancashire Cup, our preparations for the sevens season was somewhat delayed; the semi-final versus Lancaster Grammar was a mere week before our first sevens tournament and meant that we still had a 15s mindset, and mentally weren’t quite ready for the more expansive form of the beautiful game. Alas, when our cup dream ran short, we were plunged into the depths of unspeakable fitness sessions with our somewhat psychopathic coach; a man who takes pleasure in finding the latest and most effective ways to beast the human body and mind in a quest for physical and mental strength. These sessions mainly involved intense series of sprints, the infamous three-minute run (try line to every other line and back with down-and-ups) as well as several sets of progressively increasing distances of sprinting. All of these drills were of course conducted with due manipulation, so that we were misinformed in order to ensure that we weren’t strategically pacing ourselves to avoid pure exhaustion, and that we ended up giving everything. In the week before our first tournament on Wednesday, we managed to squeeze in two specific sevens sessions where we had to relearn all the different aspects in a relatively short space of time.TuesdayThe day before our first tournament was as quiet and relaxed as one would expect; following a bit of a lie in, rousing at 7.30am and sauntering into school at a reasonable time, we had a brief run-through during the lunchtime, just to go through restarts and patterns in wake of the imminent tournament. This light session was thrown into the midst of an average school day and was neither strenuous nor stressful, as the only thing being challenged was our skill-set, trying to develop our sense for the game as well as our capacity to spread the ball wide across the pitch. That evening, with AS-levels fast approaching brought with it some light reading and some notes on the Supreme Court, in a pre-emptive effort to catch up the work I was to miss the following day, all before some carb-loading. The key problem I have always had with sevens is the little injuries and niggles brought on by overworking; in response to this I worked hard on my rehab and made sure that I was in an appropriate physical state for the season. For example last year at Rosslyn I had the beginning of my hip flexor problem, and the year before a slight calf strain was eating away at my speed and agility throughout the sevens period. In terms of rehab, I have a programme from our great team at Sale Sharks aiming to redress my muscular imbalance and relieve tension in the hip area. All in all, it was a relaxed and comfortable schedule before the tournament the following day.Food10 Weetabix – Breakfast 6amToast – Mid-Morning Snack at 10.30amPastrami Sandwich – Lunch at 2pmBagel with cream cheese – Snack at 4pmTomato Pasta with chicken breast – Dinner at 7pmGlass of milk – before bed at 10pmWednesday Stonyhurst School TournamentWe arose at a slightly earlier hour than usual; having to be at school to leave at 8am on the dot. Just before I was due to set off to school, I received an email saying that the tournament at Stonyhurst had been rained off, but that we would now be playing at Giggleswick. No matter what. The coach journey was long, and the performances average for the most part, interspersed with passages of sheer brilliance, but we managed to play five games almost back to back and were able to demonstrate that when the time came to it, we could play some really great sevens. I felt I’d given a reasonable account of myself, and although my lungs were burning and hamstrings tight it felt great to get the first run-out out of the system. Whilst my post-tournament meal could be argued by some to be “bad for you,” “overly calorific,” or “dangerously high in monosodium glutamate,” so what, I won’t deny the fact – but I bloody earned it.

I had missed the last two hours of philosophy lessons due to rugby and thus had no idea who Irenaeus was – all I was thinking about as I tried to catch up was my next meal and when I’d get chance to foam roll my hip flexors. As well as this, I’d be missing three days of school the following week for Rosslyn Park so decided to speak to my teachers early on and get going with my work.Saturday brought the now typical essay, this time questioning the necessity of the afterlife. Thrilling stuff. Saturday night, however, and hopefully to the relief of Mark Bennett of Bristol Rugby (below), I watched the Six Nations at a mate’s house before his party, demonstrating that I am in fact in possession of a social life.Training day: Mark Bennett sets out bags for Wales trainingMonday and TuesdayAs we edged slowly towards our Rosslyn Park judgement day, the anticipation began to set in. Injuries revealed themselves, selections were made, and we saw the pinnacle of sevens play in our final session on Monday night before we left on Tuesday.Preparation for the tournament was notably light due to the structure of the season, but we were able to get in some work on handling in the sessions before Rosslyn and we backed our fitness from our sessions with our First and Second XV coaches – the latter being a successful Iron Man, so no stranger to pain. The conglomeration of indoor and outdoor fitness, from cycling and rowing in the gym at lunchtime to sprinting out on the field after school, meant that we were a reasonably fit side, and were able to back a consistent level of performance.On the coach journey down I had a fair amount of History reading planned, but as all the best things in life seem to be – it didn’t quite go to plan. We were advised to keep moving, so there would be the occasional stop and stroll around at the service station, but the main challenge of the journey was to not cramp up or get stiff, so there was a fair amount of walking around and stretching on the bus, just to keep loose.Monday/Tuesday foodWeetabixToastSandwichPasta(Jaffa cakes, bananas and muffins on the coach)The tournamentAs everyone knows, they put all the most exciting sevens teams as far away from the main pitch to ensure that everyone gets a good view of the seemingly infinite sprawl of land that the tournament boasts. Whilst we were somewhat away from the action when we arrived, our spirits were not dampened, as we played a solid, industrious brand of sevens throughout the day. All of the games we played were there for the taking, with the first match of the day, also our only victory, seeming the most difficult, as we proceeded to marginally throw every single game after that through simple mistakes at the end of passages of immense work. Anyway, we of course took the customary strolls around the stalls and watched how sevens was meant to be played, a revelation to myself and my fellow lock, both of whom had somehow ended up tagging along to this exhibition of speed and agility – not looking a step out of place, might I add. Despite this the day was still enjoyable, and we played some really nice stuff at times. The evening brought exhaustion and a team trip to Pizza Express, and with my post-tournament dietary routine, who needs protein shakes when you’ve got pizza?FoodHotel breakfast (full English: beans, bacon, sausage, hash browns, tomato) – Breakfast at 8 amSnacks of jelly babies, jaffa cakes and bananas – Interspersed throughout the day This time Sale Sharks Academy lock Charlie Pozniak gives us a weekly diary as Manchester Grammar prepared for the Rosslyn Park sevens… Calzone from Pizza Express – Dinner 7 pmTo find out more about best practices for grass-roots rugby, check out the Rugby Innovation Summit

This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 By David PaulsenPosted Jun 10, 2019 Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Participants and organizers of a service marking 400 years since enslaved Africans arrived in North America post for a photo at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. Photo: Bread for the World[Episcopal News Service] A historically black Episcopal church in Washington, D.C., hosted a service June 9 marking 400 years since enslaved Africans first landed in North America at Jamestown in what is now Virginia.The event at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, one of seven participating capital-area churches that were founded by slaves or former slaves, was led by Bread for the World’s Pan-African Young Adult Network, and it kicked off this week’s annual Bread for the World Advocacy Summit, a large ecumenical gathering of anti-hunger advocates.The kickoff service at St. Luke’s was framed as a time both of lament for past injustices against African Americans and of hope for a better future, Bread for the World’s Angelique Walker-Smith told Episcopal News Service. She said the commemoration also was a fitting start to this week’s advocacy on Capitol Hill on issues related to food.“We’re bringing historic roots and a historic lens to our legislative agenda,” Walker-Smith said. Four hundred years ago, “people of African descent were basically fed the crumbs off the table.”The calendar this year is filled with services and events marking the first transatlantic voyage of Africans in 1619 to the land that would become the United States, and The Episcopal Church is in the middle of planning its own commemorations. The church is coordinating with the Diocese of Southern Virginia, which includes Jamestown.“Staff of the presiding bishop’s office are co-laboring with the people and staff of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia to plan a meaningful commemoration of the arrival of enslaved Africans to Jamestown,” the Rev. Charles Wynder Jr., staff officer for social justice and engagement, said by email. “The commemoration will afford The Episcopal Church a space, time and place to tell the truth and grapple deeply with the implications of its role in the transatlantic and domestic slave trade in North America.“It will be a significant offering to the church and the world alongside numerous ecumenical, regional and national commemorations.”Racial reconciliation was identified by The Episcopal Church’s General Convention in 2015 as one of three priorities for the 2016-18 triennium and beyond, along with evangelism and care of creation. Resolutions dating back decades have helped guide the church as it responds to racism and atones for its own complicity in racial injustice and support for racist systems.A 2006 resolution specifically apologized for the church’s complicity, acknowledging that “The Episcopal Church lent the institution of slavery its support and justification based on Scripture.” Three years later, General Convention voted to encourage each diocese to research the church’s role in enabling or resisting slavery and segregation, as well as “the economic benefits derived by The Episcopal Church from the transatlantic slave trade and the institution of slavery.”The Episcopal Church also regularly partners with ecumenical organizations like Bread for the World in advocacy on Capitol Hill. Bread for the World, for example, led planning for the “For Such a Time as This” fasting campaign, which The Episcopal Church supported, and its Advocacy Summit is expected to bring hundreds of participants to Washington this week.St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Washington is serving as home base for much of Bread for the World’s two-day Advocacy Summit. The congregation, near Capitol Hill, will host a breakfast and worship service June 11 before participants leave for their rounds at Senate and House office buildings to meet with lawmakers and their staffs in support of legislation that would prioritize global nutrition efforts.Setting the stage for those meetings, the sanctuary at St. Luke’s was filled with song and prayer on June 9 as a modest crowd gathered for a service based on a yearlong devotional that Bread for the World developed to commemorate the quadricentennial of Africans arriving in North America.Among the highlights was a rousing rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” a hymn penned by J. Rosamond Johnson and James Weldon Johnson in 1900 for Abraham Lincoln’s birthday and now known as the black national anthem.“Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us.Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,Let us march on till victory is won.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Facebook Student organization hosts haunted house for Halloween printThe city of Fort Worth is waiting on the arrival of their application in becoming a qualified bicyclist-friendly community in acknowledgment of the small improvements the city has made to make roads more accessible for bicyclists.Earlier this year, Julia Ryan, the senior planner of planning and development for Fort Worth, submitted to the League of American Bicyclists an application to determine whether or not their actions qualified them to become a bicyclist-friendly city. These actions were the Bike Fort Worth Plan and the Master Thoroughfare Plan.The Bike Fort Worth Plan was proposed to the Fort Worth City Council in 2009 and adopted in 2010. Ryan said the bike plan had three specific goals that the city wanted to accomplish: First, to increase the number of bicyclists. Second, reduce the number of injuries and fatalities involving bicyclists. And lastly, to become a bicyclist-friendly community, which they hope to accomplish through their application to the League of American Bicyclists, an advocacy group for the biking community in the U.SThe numbers have slightly improved since 2010, but not to the degree that Ryan hoped. Ryan said what makes it difficult for being determined a bicyclist-friendly community by the League of American Bicyclists is that there are no set guidelines that define what makes a city qualify because the qualifications vary between cities.“There’s not a cookie-cutter answer that says these are the items that we have to have in order to reach this designation,” Ryan said. “It really depends on the community, so it varies.”Randy Sullivan, a sales team member at Mellow Johnny’s, a local bike shop and social gathering spot for bicyclists, said there has been some progress in the changes being made.“The progression has been slow but moving in the right direction for cyclists,” said Randy Sullivan, sales manager at Mellow Johnny’s, a local bike shop and social gathering spot for bicyclists.Sullivan said that Fort Worth has improved in their development of becoming a bicyclist-friendly community in the past 15 years.“As compared to 15 years ago, this town is way more bicyclist-friendly,” Sullivan said. “I think the Trinity Trail has helped a lot as well as the advancement of local shops, thriving local economy and our recent mayor’s support of the local cycling scene.”The Master Thoroughfare Plan (MTP), which was adopted by Fort Worth this May, is an updated version of the bike plan adopted six years ago, Ryan said. The MTP is said to “provide a complete and connected, context-sensitive transportation system for all users that supports mobility, healthy living and economic benefit,” according to the city’s website.The MTP is based on a “complete streets philosophy,” which creates roadways to accommodate most, if not all, transportation methods: driving, biking, walking, and using public transportation.“It’s a really big departure from where we were,” Ryan said. “We had three cross sections that really only served motor vehicle traffic: wide lanes, narrow sidewalks.”The mileage of accessible bike lanes in Fort Worth has increased almost eightfold in the past six years; however, only an additional 5.1 miles have been added to all bike routes (shared lanes).Bike: On-street ImplementationCreate bar chartsThrough these plans, Ryan said that Fort Worth is looking to update their street design and manual, which hasn’t been updated since 1987.One of the design updates that will be first implemented is with intersections because they experience the most conflict in urban areas. Ryan said one design idea would turn them into protected intersections.Protected intersections, sometimes referred to as “Dutch intersections,” are intersections that allow vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists to safely travel on streets without causing conflict or injury. The idea was first sought out when American roadmakers saw how the Netherlands made their intersections safer for all road users.What makes protected intersections so safe is that they allow all road users to see each other clearly so they do not unintentionally drive, bike or walk into moving traffic. Some of the first U.S. cities to use protected intersections are Davis, California; Austin, Texas; and, Salt Lake City, Utah.“The thing about [a protected intersection] is that it’s nice and that it’s going to be safer for vehicles too because you’re slowing the speed down because of something new,” Ryan said. “And, when you see something new, you’re not going to learn from [it] at 40 mph. You’re going to have to slow down because there are things going on in your mind that you’ll need to be aware of.”With these plans, Ryan said taking elements from each of them would create an active transportation plan, which will help promote healthier ways of transportation, such as biking and walking. And, when it comes to safety, Ryan said for everyone to be alert at all times.“My personal recommendation is that everybody really needs to pay attention to what is going on, whether it is driving or biking or walking, that distracted driving or distracted walking, these are big issues that cause a lot of issues,” Ryan said. “Slow down, be friendly, these are things that in other communities have come by little easier than in Texas.”Ryan said the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) has developed a road safety education campaign called Look Out Texans that can help Fort Worth residents know their rights and responsibilities as road users.“I think the city of Fort Worth is definitely headed in the right direction with the addition of new river trail activity stops and locations along the Trinity as well as the addition of bike paths and specific bike lanes on city streets,” Sullivan said.Fort Worth will hear from the League of American Bicyclists on their application submission in November.
