Book review: the angst and achievements of Ireland’s Rory Best

first_imgHe built a machine out of a cattle-feed bin to help his lineout throwing and, for the last eight or so years of his career, during the season he’d throw an extra 500 balls a week on his own.He never really shook off a reputation as a flaky thrower, in part because of the nightmare of losing eight throws in defeat by the Brumbies on the 2013 Lions tour. Yet as Best points out, his stats overall weren’t to be sniffed at, including a 90% success rate across four World Cups.When Joe Schmidt took the Ireland reins, he asked only that Best hit 30 rucks a game to help get quick ball. It was a task he was well equipped to do.A theme of the book is Best’s insecurity, a desire to prove a point to either himself or to others who doubted him. Among those in his firing line is Graham Rowntree, the Lions scrum coach, who said the decision to pick Dylan Hartley, Richard Hibbard and Tom Youngs as hookers for the 2013 tour was not a difficult one.“I thought he was out of order to be so disrespectful to a player who had been around for so long,” writes Best, who then replaced the suspended Hartley but lived with the feeling that the coaches didn’t rate him.Red dread: Best leads out the Lions at Canberra. ‘The lineout was a disaster,’ he says of that defeat (Getty)Tipping pointMedia criticism wore him down, to the extent that more than once he came close to quitting in the months before Japan 2019.“I’d turned 37 nine days before the Twickenham defeat (last August) and suddenly I felt old,” he says. “I was going to tell Joe I couldn’t play at this level any more. I was hampering the team. I didn’t want to go to the World Cup and let Ireland down. I didn’t want Ireland to fail because the guy who was supposed to be their captain and leader was weighing them down.”Social media is no place for solace. After first being named Ireland captain in 2012, when O’Driscoll and Paul O’Connell were unavailable, one bigot tweeted: “No affence (sic) but how can a fat Protestant like you captain our country?”Final bow: with his children Penny, Richie and Ben after the 2019 World Cup defeat by New Zealand in Tokyo (Inpho)More garbage was directed his way after he posted a picture on Instagram in which his son Ben’s England football team bedclothes were visible in the background. Ben is a Spurs fan and has an English grandmother because Best’s mum Pat comes from Middlesbrough.Best, in fact, could have played for England and we learn too that Pete Walton hatched a plan to keep the player at Newcastle in his younger days and then move him north so he could qualify for Scotland!Neither happened, of course, as Best instead gave heart and soul to Ireland. His book is similarly committed, with perhaps only the chapter encompassing Paddy Jackson’s rape trial – at which Best acted as a character witness – being treated with undue brevity. “My focus was on supporting my friend. I had not thought I would upset anyone by attending court.”Since his playing retirement, he’s been doing TV and commercial work. As for the future, he wouldn’t mind being the scrum coach for Ulster, the club he stuck with through thick and thin even when Leinster and some of the French clubs came knocking.“I don’t necessarily want to pull a tracksuit on every day,” he told The Guardian. “Maybe a mentorship or consultancy role in rugby, or a scrum coach. Or maybe being more strategic in terms of almost being like a football manager.” He has a lot of knowledge to impart.Rory Best: My Autobiography is published by Hodder & Stoughton, RRP £20. Written in collaboration with Gavin Mairs, chief rugby correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, it comes highly recommended. Best till last: ex-Ireland captain Rory Best played his finest rugby in his 30s (Corbis/Sportsfile/Getty) Book review: the angst and achievements of Ireland’s Rory BestLockdown or no lockdown, Rory Best’s autobiography is worth making time for. Only 11 men in history have played more Tests than the Ulsterman and his 14-year international career has provided a wealth of experiences and lessons that he is keen to share.BUY NOW from AmazonFor the record, Best won 124 caps (102 starts) – the third most by an Irishman – and captained Ireland more times than anyone apart from Brian O’Driscoll. The hooker achieved a 63% success rate from his 38 matches as skipper.He was part of nearly all the great Irish days of modern times: South Africa in Cape Town, the two wins against New Zealand, France in Paris, and the Grand Slam at Twickenham.Grand Slam: Best says the 2018 win v England was the greatest Irish performance he played in (Getty)If World Cup joy eluded him, as it has every Irishman since the competition sprung up, the more glaring omission in Best’s career comes with a red hue. He toured twice with the Lions, in 2013 and 2017, but got no further than the ‘dirt trackers’.He was an unlikely candidate for stardom given his early years. Best grew up on a village farm in County Armagh and had an inbuilt reticence at odds with the globetrotting international rugby captain that he was to become.In his teens, the “shy, fat lad from Poyntzpass” received a form asking about his availability for a summer training camp and he pretended he was going to be away so that he didn’t have to attend. At Newcastle University, he played social rugby with mates from his agriculture course. However, his talent couldn’t be ignored.He played a bit for Newcastle Falcons at prop and finished his degree in Belfast so he could join Ulster. Remorseless set-piece work at Belfast Harlequins, under Andre Bester’s stewardship, helped Best become one of the best scrummaging hookers the game has seen.Haven: Best with Tony Buckley and Cian Healy in 2010. He always felt at home in the scrum (Inpho)Off the railsBest can certainly be described as a late developer because his drinking and partying as a young man was far removed from the standards required of a professional athlete.He relates how, after one big drinking session, he forced open a neighbour’s door because he thought it was his own house. His half-baked commitment was such that he asked Mark McCall, then Ulster’s head coach, if he’d be picked for a Celtic Cup quarter-final because he was meant to be best man at a wedding.When Ulster won the Celtic League trophy in 2006 – Best’s only domestic trophy – he was party to some puerile trashing of a hotel room. It proved a watershed moment because at a subsequent disciplinary hearing, he vowed to give up drinking and he was true to his word.Previously overweight and lacking mobility around the field, something reporter Neil Francis alluded to when writing that Best “waddled on for his first cap”, Best shed the excess weight and started to give pro rugby the respect it deserves.Brotherhood: with older sibling Simon in 2006. Best’s weight hit 113kg in his younger days (Inpho)He won Ulster Rugby Personality of the Year 2006-07 and, albeit a little uncomfortably, succeeded his brother Simon as club captain at the age of 24.Internationally, he lost out more than he won in his selection duel with Jerry Flannery. But from his first Six Nations start, against Wales in 2007, Best played in 53 successive championship games over ten years – one shy of John Hayes’s Irish record.And once Flannery retired in 2011, Best took centre stage. Exactly half of his huge caps haul came after the age of 30, when he played his most impressive rugby, and that fact alone should inspire those in the twilight of their career.An Ulster legend: tackling Thomas Castaignede of Saracens during a 2005 Heineken Cup tie (Getty)Technically speakingThe best chapter in the book concerns Best’s self-improvement as a player: his change of throwing technique in 2011, his scrummaging insights, the window he offers into a world of sweat and graft honing his skills.

Global Grain Surplus Increasing with Less Used for Animal Feed

first_imgHome Market Global Grain Surplus Increasing with Less Used for Animal Feed By Gary Truitt – Jan 24, 2016 Global Grain Surplus Increasing with Less Used for Animal Feed Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleTwenty Years of Roundup Ready, What Has It Meant? Gary Truitt Slowing demand for animal feed this season will leave the world with a bigger hoard of grains than previously thought, according to the International Grains Council. Bloomberg reports that while production from bumper harvests will be slightly less than predicted in November, carryover stockpiles of grains excluding rice will increase 1.9 percent to 455 million metric tons in 2015-16, the highest in almost three decades. That is one million tons more than the previous forecast.  Wheat and corn futures declined for a third year in 2015.That is because large harvests around the world led to ample supplies of many different grains. The International Grains Council cut its estimate for total grains demand by just under a one-half percent. SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

‘Stories of Reconciliation’ to discuss peace in divided countries

first_imgFacebook ReddIt print“Stories of Reconciliation” will allow TCU students to attend a discussion of peacemaking in divided countries with TCU’s visiting scholar Michael McRay Thursday evening.According to their website, “Stories of Reconciliation” is put on by TCU’s Discovering Global Citizenship program in order to increase internationalization at TCU, particularly through programs related to developing countries and communities where the institution has minimal engagement.McRay is part of Discovering Global Citizenship’s Quality Enhancement Project, or QEP, and is considered a visiting scholar.McRay spent three months traveling between Israel-Palestine, Northern Ireland, Rwanda and South Africa where he wrote and learned about those who seek peace in these dangerous countries.“Northern Ireland, South Africa, Rwanda, and Israel-Palestine are possibly the quintessential images of civil conflict in the last 50 years,” McRay wrote in his blog.“Today, as the potential for violent conflict often simmers beneath the surface of these societies, groups and individuals commit themselves to disrupting the spirals of vengeance and animosity.”This isn’t the first time McRay spent three months traveling foreign countries. He has done similar trips five times before, spanning from Vienna to the West Bank to Belfast.“We are attempting to pioneer a new pedagogical model of visiting scholarship,” McRay wrote. “Traditionally, visiting scholars spend their time on the university’s campus; in our experiment, the visiting scholar (me) will go abroad [before] engaging with students.”Below is a map showing where Michael McRay traveled for three months.McRay has been partnered with TCU students. At 12 p.m. Wednesday he will be visiting with students in Smith 104B to talk about the power religious communities can have on reconciliation, in addition to presenting “Stories of Reconciliation” on Thursday.Dr. Rima Abunasser, an english professor at TCU, will be hosting McRay in a discussion of how regional turbulence can result in reconciliation.Students are welcome to come, listen and join in on the conversation at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom.

He must be tried or released. We call on the US authorities to put an immediate end to this violation of the rule of law, and we point out that the US army already held five journalists for several months before freeing them without bringing charges.”Hussein had been covering events in Fallujah and Ramadi prior to his arrest. The Associated Press only decided to make the arrest public after five months of talks with the US authorities to obtain his release had proved fruitless.The US army meanwhile arrested Fadel Al-Badrani, an Iraqi cameraman working for Reuters and the BBC, on 13 September in Fallujah and took him to an army base at Al-Saklawiya before freeing him on 18 September. Ali Kahzal of the magazine Al-Fallujah was arrested in Fallujah the same day and was freed four days later.“The situation in Iraq is extremely dangerous and to work as a journalist means becoming a target,” Reporters Without Borders added, on learning of the death of another journalist, Ahmed Riyad Al-Karbuli of the satellite television station Baghdad TV, who was gunned down yesterday. Baghdad TV had already lost three of its journalists.A total of 107 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the start of the war in 2003. Newslast_img read more

Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy Holds Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Gatherings Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy Holds Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner STAFF REPORTS Published on Friday, October 18, 2013 | 2:04 pm Top of the News On Monday, October 14, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy held its 39th Annual Harry G. Johansing Scholarship Golf Tournament and Dinner at Oakmont Country Club in Glendale. Clear skies and warm weather greeted the 106 golfers as they teed off at 11 a.m. Along the course, players also had the opportunity to hit a hole-in-one for a 2014 Toyota Prius donated by Mike Smith and Bob Smith Toyota Scion.After a long day of golf, players joined their family, friends and other FSHA community members for a cocktail hour and dinner. The highlight of the cocktail hour was new competition called “Bet on the Sisters,” where five Dominican Sisters competed in a classic putt-off—habits and all. According to Charlotte Saydah, Special Events Manager at FSHA, “Our wonderful Sisters came up with the idea of participating in a putting contest, which our guests enjoyed tremendously. Our Sisters are such good sports!”At the dinner, Golf Committee Chair Craig Shewfelt (father of Haley ’14) welcomed guests, informing them that the Johansing Endowed Scholarship Fund is “the largest scholarship endowment at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.” One such example was the evening’s featured speaker, Julia Byrne ’16, a recipient of scholarship assistance. A student leader with stellar grades, Julia spoke about her passion for mathematics (she received a perfect SAT math score), the supportive and welcoming environment of FSHA, and her determined plans for the future. “My career ambition is to be an engineer someday. I want to be an example to other women and girls, to show them that they can and should strive for leadership roles within the currently male dominated world of engineering,” she said. It was no surprise that Julia received a standing ovation.The night ended with awards for tournament players, jewelry and cash raffles, as well as a paddle pledge. Saydah declared the event a huge success, saying, “This is very close to my heart, as I know there are many amazing girls who wouldn’t be able to afford a FSHA education without our help, and these students enrich life on the Hill tremendously. Every student benefits when we are able to give a hand to those who need it.”For more information about Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, visit Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

The most common reason given was that ‘the dog was exhibiting unwanted behaviour’. This could be attributed to a lack of socialisation and training which is critical in those first few months to ensure they become a well-rounded dog.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Dogs Trust Ireland received 235 requests from people looking to surrender their dog in the month after Christmas. Pictured is Bibi who was born in their whelping wing after their mum ‘Banana’ gave birth to nine puppies. 18/03/2020 Photograph: © Fran VealeEvery year, Dogs Trust urges the public to wait until after Christmas to welcome a dog, especially a puppy, into their home. Although many people often have good intentions, Christmas is simply too busy a time to provide the basic training and positive socialisation experiences a puppy or any dog entering a new home needs.An upsetting case arriving in January at Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre in Finglas was a heavily pregnant Lurcher ‘Banana’ who was brought to the Charity just in time to give birth to nine puppies.Karla Dunne, Head of Operations at Dogs Trust Ireland said; “January is one of the busiest months for us and sadly this year is no different. Although we are pleased to see a reduction in surrender requests after Christmas this year, we are seeing a lot of vulnerable dogs coming through our doors, which is so incredibly heart-breaking as many of the dogs we have taken in have been pregnant.“Thankfully we have a purpose built ‘Mutt-ernity Wing’ to care for pregnant dogs and give them a safe space to give birth. Banana is just one of the pregnant mums who we have taken in this year, but with every pregnant dog, comes a litter of puppies born who will need love, warmth, round the clock care and when old enough, a Forever Home” she said. Becky Bristow, Executive Director at Dogs Trust Ireland added; “We are pleased that our annual campaigns, reminding people that “A dog is for life, not just for Christmas®”, are resonating with the public as we saw a 36% reduction in the number of people looking to surrender their dog to us after Christmas compared to last year. We hope that our educational messaging is having a positive impact on the number of dogs being bought in haste for Christmas.Becky continues: “Although the numbers are decreasing, we are still concerned to be receiving over 6 surrender requests each day which is a highly alarming number!“This shows that many people are still not fully considering all aspects of dog ownership including the essential socialisation and training needs, the cost involved and life-long commitment of dog ownership.“We are pleading with the public to please try to anticipate any major lifestyle changes such as an upcoming move, a new baby and consider how a dog may impact this before bringing one into your home.” she added. Dogs Trust recognises that there are genuine cases of people needing to rehome their dogs, so they have published some helpful advice about responsibly rehoming a dog. For more information, please visit response to last week’s Government announcement, the charity has made the decision to close their Dublin Rehoming Centre to the general public until further notice.
