Hotshot: Northampton and Scotland U20 back-row Devante Onojaife

first_imgRW VERDICT: Onojaife cites his mum as the biggest influence on his career. Having settled at back-row and been part of Scotland’s U20 World Cup side, he’s looking to make a big impression on new Northampton coach Chris Boyd.This article originally appeared in the August 2018 issue of Rugby World magazine. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. On the ball: Devante Onojaife in action during the Junior World Cup (Getty Images) TAGS: Northampton Saints Tough. That first year at Saints I was developing and trying to be a prop, then I had a talk with Jim Mallinder and he saw me as a back-row. So I lost a bit of weight and worked on my conditioning. It was quite challenging. I played at Cambridge for two seasons, which helped me.Your brother, Jordan, plays too… He’s a lock at Ealing. We’re quite competitive but have always helped each other. He did the same process as me at Stowe.How did representing Scotland come about? I qualify through my grandmother, who was born in Edinburgh. I’m not sure how they found out but I played Scotland U18, England U18 and now Scotland U20.What are your goals going forward? I want to hit the ground running in pre-season. It’s my last year in the academy so it’s a big year to try to improve and we’ve got a new coach. He doesn’t know any of the players so we’re all starting from scratch; it’s a big chance for all of us.What do you do off the field? I study business management, specialising in marketing, with the Open University. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Get to know the Northampton Saint who represents Scotland U20 – Devante Onojaife Northampton and Scotland U20 back-row Devante Onojaife Date of birth 15 April 1998 Born Colchester Club Northampton Country Scotland Position Back-rowHow long have you played rugby?I was born in Essex but moved to Dubai when I was nine because of my dad’s job – he’s a chemical engineer – and I started playing when I was 12 as it was on the school curriculum. Before then I’d mainly played football.How did you find it? I didn’t know any rules and the first time I got the ball I ran the wrong way! I must have enjoyed it, though, as I kept doing it. When I was younger I was big for my age and was asked to tone it down in football. In rugby, I didn’t need to do that.How did you get spotted by Northampton? We used to come back from Dubai in the summer to see family and my mum found a rugby residency course at Stowe School. I went to a couple of trials and Saints asked me to come to a session with the U18s, then kept in contact. I went to Stowe for sixth form, played for the U18s both years and was lucky enough to get signed.What positions have you played? I started off in the back row, then switched to tighthead prop and now I’m back in the back row. I was signed by Northampton as a prop and I’d got into the England U18s as a prop.How was the switch? last_img read more

Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – New Brunswick (New Jersey)] Le Conseil exécutif de l’Église épiscopale s’est rendu à New York, le premier jour de sa réunion (qui s’est tenue du 20 au 22 octobre), afin de rencontrer les permanents dans le cadre des initiatives de l’Église en vue d’améliorer sa culture pour qu’elle reflète mieux l’attitude aimante, libératrice et vivifiante de Jésus.Pour lancer le dialogue de l’après-midi, l’Évêque Primat Michael B. Curry a expliqué qu’il s’agit de « libérer cette église pour qu’elle soit un catalyseur de bien et d’amour dans le monde ».L’ensemble des permanents s’était réuni les 18 et 19 octobre pour poursuivre ses travaux sur le changement de culture entrepris depuis le printemps. Lors du dernier exercice de cette réunion, chacun des permanents s’est engagé verbalement à opérer un changement dans son comportement. L’Évêque Primat, décrivant sa réaction à l’écoute de ces engagements, confie que derrière chaque vœu, il y a un « profond espoir que nous nous rapprochions tant soit peu de ce que Dieu rêve que nous soyons ».Au cours de la séance plénière d’ouverture du Conseil le 20 octobre, l’Évêque Primat et la révérende Gay Clark Jennings ont tous deux rappelé la réunion historique du mois dernier de la Chambre des Évêques et de la Chambre des Députés qui a réuni un grand nombre de participants pour s’informer sur les travaux de changement de culture, conduits avec l’aide de Human Synergistics International. Les consultants ont été engagés à la suite d’une enquête concernant des plaintes du personnel à l’automne dernier, relatives aux pratiques professionnelles de trois cadres supérieurs du Church Center de New York. L’Évêque Primat avait déclaré à Episcopal News Service à l’époque que la décision était en grande partie fondée sur le besoin pour toute organisation confessionnelle, lors d’un changement de leadership, d’examiner sa culture.Gay Jennings a relié ces travaux aux questions auxquelles l’Église a récemment été confrontée sur la façon de changer ses structures pour mieux les adapter à ses missions. « Si nous ne prêtons pas attention à ce que nous apprenons sur la culture de l’église et nous concentrons sur son changement, afin de créer la culture du Mouvement de Jésus à travers toute l’église, nous n’opérons jamais de changement structurel significatif », explique-t-elle.Changer la culture de l’Église « libérera l’énergie et le pouvoir des épiscopaliens à tous les niveaux de ministère afin d’accomplir la mission de Dieu pour l’Église épiscopale » et, combiner la culture et l’énergie de l’Église « nous mènera à créer une structure saine, vivifiante et libératrice qui utilise au mieux nos ressources en tant que peuple de Dieu », poursuit-elle.Le révérend Michael Hunn, à gauche, l’un des trois chanoines de l’Évêque Primat en conversation avec Michael Curry, le 20 octobre, alors que le Révérend Michael Barlowe, directeur exécutif de la Convention générale et la révérende Gay Clark Jennings, Présidente de la Chambre des Députés et vice-présidente du Conseil exécutif, conversent avant que les membres du Conseil ne passent l’après-midi avec les permanents. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceL’Évêque Primat relate l’histoire de Billy Sunday, l’évangéliste de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle et du début du XXe qui, à la lecture du Livre de la prière commune a déclaré : « Si jamais l’Église épiscopale se réveille, faites attention ».« Mes frères et sœurs, nous sommes réveillés » a déclaré l’Évêque Primat.Également au cours de la séance plénière du matin, avant que le Conseil ne se rende à New York, les trois membres du Conseil consultatif anglican (ACC) Gay Jennings, Rosalie Ballentine, députée du Diocèse des Îles Vierges et Ian Douglas, évêque du Diocèse du Connecticut, ont présenté un rapport sur la réunion de l’ACC-16.Gay Jennings a dit que des membres de l’Église épiscopale se sont rendus à la rencontre de Lusaka (Zambie) en avril, « malgré les conjectures de certains nous dissuadant d’y aller » en raison de l’appel des Primats de la Communion en janvier, à tirer « les conséquences » pendant trois ans pour l’Église épiscopale, après qu’elle se soit prononcée en faveur de l’égalité sacramentelle du mariage. La révérende Jennings a fait remarquer que l’ACC avait refusé d’approuver ou d’imposer « les conséquences » que la réunion des primats « n’avait pas le pouvoir d’imposer ». Elle a critiqué la revendication ultérieure par l’Archevêque de Cantorbéry Justin Welby que l’ACC avait en fait approuvé « les conséquences ».« J’en suis venue, avec regret, à conclure que la politie de la Communion anglicane est en péril et que le soutien de l’Église épiscopale envers l’égalité de mariage sert d’écran de fumée à un petit nombre de primats qui veulent apparemment coopter en leur faveur, le pouvoir du Conseil consultatif anglican », conclut-elle.Rosalie Ballentine, ancien membre du Conseil dont le fils, Jabriel, siège maintenant au Conseil, a déclaré qu’elle a beaucoup appris sur la Communion au cours de la réunion, qui était la première à laquelle elle assistait et qu’elle s’est rendu compte que, plutôt que de se concentrer sur la gouvernance au sens strict, les réunions de l’ACC ont mis l’accent sur l’établissement de relations permettant d’aborder les problèmes mondiaux. Le Conseil a traité de questions telles le discipulat, la violence sexiste, le changement climatique, la violence à motivation religieuse et la sécurité alimentaire qui affectent tous les Anglicans et « à aucun moment nous ne nous sommes sentis mal accueillis », a-t-elle déclaré.Rosalie Ballentine était assise à la même table que l’Archevêque Cantorbéry et cette opportunité lui a procuré « une profonde empathie envers lui et les défis auxquels il est confronté en essayant de maintenir l’unité de la communion ». L’Archevêque, d’après elle, comprend « nos différents antécédents, les complexités de nos différents contextes et comment cela a un impact sur l’église dans le monde entier ».L’élection de l’archevêque de Hong Kong Paul Kwong en tant que président de l’ACC est inquiétante, déclare-t-elle. Relevant que certaines personnes ont déclaré que l’élection d’un primat à la présidence de l’ACC donnerait à tous les primats un moyen de communiquer avec l’ACC, Rosalie Ballentine ajoute « c’est à mon avis précisément le danger d’élire des primats ». Les primats, poursuit-elle « ont besoin d’apprendre comment nous parler à nous et non pas simplement comment parler entre eux ».Ian Douglas, que l’Évêque Primat a félicité  pour sa décision de ne pas se présenter à l’élection à la présidence de l’ACC, a dit que sa décision était fondée sur des préoccupations « institutionnelles et culturelles » concernant la manière dont sa candidature pouvait affecter l’ACC, l’Église épiscopale et « ma propre vocation personnelle », en tant qu’évêque du Connecticut.S’il s’était présenté et avait été élu, Ian Douglas savait que ses « détracteurs préparaient déjà des rapports au sujet de la dérive de l’ACC et son incapacité à être le reflet de la Communion Anglicane, si une personne de l’Église épiscopale était élue. Cela aurait porté tort à l’ACC », explique-t-il.S’il s’était présenté et n’avait pas été élu, cet échec aurait pu être pris comme preuve que l’Église épiscopale n’écoute pas les primats. En outre, ajoute-t-il, d’autres personnes l’ont aidé à voir l’impact que la présidence aurait sur sa vie personnelle et sur ses vœux en tant qu’évêque du Connecticut.À la question de la contribution triennale d’ 1,2 million de dollars de l’Église épiscopale au budget total annuel de 3 millions de dollars du Bureau de la Communion anglicane – paiement que, selon Gay Jennings, les épiscopaliens devraient continuer à verser la « joie au cœur » – Ian Douglas explique que le paiement représente environ la moitié de ce qui est demandé à l’Église. Du fait que la quote-part est basée sur le PIB du ou des pays de chaque province et du nombre de membres de la province, la contribution de l’Église épiscopale est la deuxième par ordre d’importance des provinces, après l’Église d’Angleterre. Ian Douglas fait remarquer qu’avec le taux de change actuel les dollars américains représentent davantage en Angleterre.Le trésorier Kurt Barnes a rendu compte aux membres du Conseil de la performance relative à la portion 2016 du budget triennal 2016-2018 jusqu’en août, en disant que tant les revenus que les dépenses sont conformes aux prévisions. Il a également fait remarquer que le rendement net pour l’Église sur cinq ans des 370 millions de dollars d’investissements, y compris les 110 millions de dollars investis pour le compte de différentes congrégations et institutions individuelles, est de 9 % l’an. Cette performance maintient les fonds en fiducie de l’Église épiscopale dans les premiers 20 % parmi ses homologues détenant des actifs en fiducie de plus de 50 millions de dollars. « Cette solide performance n’affaiblit nullement ma résolution mentionnée il y a quelques mois de faire en sorte d’abaisser notre taux de versement de dividendes de 5 % à 4,5 % dans les quelques années à venir », a-t-il prévenu. Il va être demandé au Conseil lors de cette réunion une révision pour l’année 2017 du budget triennal 2016-2018 afin de tenir compte des variations de revenus et dépenses depuis l’approbation par la Convention générale du budget en juillet 2015. Parmi les variations figurent un revenu diocésain plus élevé que prévu, un revenu locatif retardé pour la moitié d’un étage du Church Center et des primes d’assurance médicale supérieures aux prévisions budgétaires, a expliqué Kurt Barnes.Reste de la réunionBarry Merer, responsable des services Web et médias sociaux, près de la fenêtre, s’adresse le 20 octobre aux membres du Conseil exécutif dans une salle de conférence du Church Center alors que d’autres membres du personnel l’écoutent.

Le 22 octobre, ces comités vont chacun faire rapport à l’assemblée tout entière et lui soumettre des résolutions à étudier.La réunion se déroule à l’hôtel Heldrich  à New Brunswick (État du New Jersey), à environ une heure au sud-ouest de l’Episcopal Church Center situé dans le centre de Manhattan.Le Conseil exécutif mène à bien les programmes et les politiques adoptés par la Convention générale, conformément au Canon I.4 (1). Le Conseil se compose de 38 membres – 20 d’entre eux (quatre évêques, quatre prêtres ou diacres et 12 laïcs) sont élus par la Convention générale et 18 (un membre du clergé et un laïc) par les neuf synodes provinciaux pour des mandats de six ans – plus l’Évêque Primat et le Président de la Chambre des Députés. En outre, le vice-président de la Chambre des députés, le secrétaire, le directeur des opérations, le trésorier et le directeur financier y siègent et ont droit de parole mais n’ont pas droit de vote.– La Révérende Mary Frances Schjonberg est rédacteur et journaliste pour l’Episcopal News Service.

Cadet killed in West Point training accident identified

first_imgiStock(WEST POINT, N.Y.) — The West Point cadet killed in a overturned vehicle training accident at the U.S. Military Academy was identified Friday.Cadet Christopher J. Morgan, 22, of West Orange, New Jersey, was part of the Class of 2020. He was a law and legal studies major and a recruited athlete who was a standout member of the Army Wrestling Team, according to a statement from West Point.Morgan was killed Thursday morning when 5-ton Light Medium Tactical Vehicle used for personnel and equipment overturned in a training area off of Route 293.“We are devastated by the news of Chris’ passing,” said West Point wrestling coach Kevin Ward. “He was a talented, hardworking, and determined athlete who loved his sport. Chris had an infectious personality with a smile big enough to fill any room, and a heart big enough to love everyone around him. He made everyone around him better and he will be greatly missed.”A vigil is being held for Morgan at West Point on Friday evening.A friend of Morgan’s, Josh Feinblatt, told ABC News that in high school, Morgan was a member of the West Orange Junior ROTC program and also played football and wrestled before going on to attend the West Point Military Academy Preparatory School.Feinblatt said Morgan always had a positive energy and a smile that “lit up” any room.Among 22 individuals in the vehicle, 19 cadets and two soldiers were also injured.Army and local first responders at the scene treated the injured near the Camp Natural Bridge training site, which is on U.S. Military Academy property, officials said.The injuries ranged from face abrasions to a broken arm.The accident occurred as the cadets — who are rising seniors and part of the class of 2020 — were traveling to a land navigation training site during annual summer training at the academy, West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams said at an afternoon news conference.He called it a “tragic day” for the West Point community and the U.S. Army.During the summer months, West Point cadets train in field exercises common throughout the active duty Army. One of the two Army soldiers on the truck was driving — not a cadet — when the accident occurred, Williams said.There are 2,400 cadets currently training at the U.S. Military Academy.President Donald Trump tweeted about the “terrible accident” on Thursday, saying, “We mourn the loss of life and pray for the injured. God Bless them ALL!”“My heart breaks for all those involved in the tragic training accident at West Point this morning,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., said in a statement. “These courageous cadets and soldiers represent the best of New York state and our country, and we owe them a debt of gratitude for their bravery in choosing to serve our country and protect our freedoms.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

F-region ionospheric irregularities over King George Island and Argentine Islands – a comparative study

first_imgSpread-F is caused by the presence of ionospheric electron concentration irregularities of scale-size of order 5 km at F-region altitudes. Estimates of spread-F in the vicinity of the maximum plasma frequency of the Flayer (foF2) have been determined at 15 min intervals from ionograms recorded over a ten day period (1–10 May 1986) both at Marsh (62.2°S, 58.9°W), King George Island, and Faraday (65.2°S, 64.3°W), Argentine Islands. The interval, at low solar activity, includes periods of quiet and disturbed geomagnetic activity. Spread-F is observed on every night at both stations. It is more frequent, slightly more intense and starts earlier at Argentine Islands than at King George Island. On most nights, spread-F ceases about local sunrise at 120 km altitude at both stations. On the days of highest geomagnetic activity, the onset of spread-F is delayed compared with days of lower activity. Spread-F is usually most intense on the night(s) following largest geomagnetic activity level, as measured by the geomagnetic index, Kp. The growth rate of the plasma instability processes causing the ionospheric irregularities is inversely related to electron concentration (foF22), amongst other parameters. Thus the lower foF2 values over Argentine Islands are consistent with more spread-F being observed by the higher latitude observatory. However, no firm relationship between the absolute value of foF2, the horizontal gradient of foF2 between the two observatories, and the onset of spread-F, is found. Thus it has not been possible to determine uniquely the instability process responsible for the formation of the plasma irregularities.last_img read more

Tentative start to Turkey-Greece talks after year of strife

first_imgANKARA, Turkey (AP) — The first high-level talks aimed at reducing tensions between Turkey and Greece in five years have taken place behind closed doors. Monday’s exploratory talks at Istanbul’s Dolmabahce Palace came after a year that saw the two NATO members come to the verge of conflict in the eastern Mediterranean. That crisis pushed the European Union toward imposing sanctions on Ankara. A spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed Turkey’s commitment to “regional peace and stability” but Athens was more reserved. Greece’s government spokesman said “these are not negotiations and do not have a binding effect.”last_img

Disney moving closer to meeting green energy goals

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The New York Times:Even the visionary Walt Disney probably could not have imagined this one.The Walt Disney Company is just months away from generating enough renewable solar energy to fully power two of its four parks at the Walt Disney World Resort in central Florida. Before the end of 2018, Disney will flip the switch on a sprawling 50-megawatt solar power facility composed of more than a half-million solar panels, just outside Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The move is aimed, in part, at helping Disney achieve its larger plan to reduce its net greenhouse gas emissions 50 percent worldwide by 2020, compared to 2012.The soon-to-open Disney World solar facility, spread along a 270-acre designated renewable energy area, will produce enough energy to supply 10,000 homes annually and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 57,000 tons per year, according to Disney’s estimates. That is the annual equivalent of removing roughly 9,300 automobiles from the roads, the company says.The energy will not actually go to Disney’s theme parks, but rather into the local power grid. Nonetheless, with one eye on its global reputation and another on its customers’ increasing focus on sustainability, Disney is emerging as a renewable energy force.Disney’s move toward cleaner energy comes when brand image for global giants goes far beyond, say, merely a ride on Space Mountain — particularly among free-spending but environmentally sensitive millennials. Indeed, some 79 percent of consumers say they seek out products that are socially or environmentally responsible, according to a 2017 study by Cone Communications.More: The Magic Kingdom is going green Disney moving closer to meeting green energy goalslast_img read more
