Preparing for launch: Duane Vermeulen fools around with his team mates during the Springboks’ captain’s runBy Alan DymockAFTER A brief hiatus the Rugby Championship is back, fizzing and spurting with all the energy of a hand grenade in a firework factory.After two rounds we already know that the big showdown is yet to come, with round four of the competition on September 14 kicking off with New Zealand versus South Africa at Eden Park. However, round three features two stonkers (they’re all stonkers, right?) with the All Blacks hosting the Pumas and the Wallabies welcoming the Springboks to Suncorp.Round of applause: The All Blacks prepare for the PumasNew Zealand have seen players drop in and out of their squad, but they had never looked weak enough to succumb to the Wallabies during the two Bledisloe rounds and now Dan Carter returns to man the rudder. With Francis Saili replacing Ma’a Nonu at inside centre and Charlie Faumuina coming in at tight-head prop there are subtle changes for New Zealand, but nothing too alarming.They face an Argentina team aching from their experiences against South Africa. They will feel better about their showing in round two than they did about their hammering in round one, but they have still made several changes with Juan Martin Hernandez reinstated at full-back and Felipe Contepomi sitting on the bench. They may have lost Leonardo Senatore for nine weeks thanks to the No. 8 nibbling on a Springbok, but the return of captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe can only be a positive. Of course, they still face a sheer cliff-face in Auckland.Phelan apprehensive: A steely looking Santiago PhelanSouth Africa have banded back together after their two wins against los Pumas and are set for the Wallabies, but several players including Bryan Habana have flown to Europe and back in their week off to play in the Top 14, racking up something similar to 20,000km on their way to Brisbane. Disruptive, certainly, but with Will Genia thrust into captaincy after James Horwill pulled-up with a hamstring strain it means that Ben Mowen is the man bossing the forwards while Genia has the task of offsetting hard workers and brutally honest team men like Adam Ashley-Cooper and Nick Cummins with free spirits Quade Cooper and James O’Connor. They should string some impressive, sweeping phases together but the the grunt and spit of the South Africans could see Australia wilting near the end of play, despite how much traveling has been endured by the Boks.When you’ve got Bismarck du Plessis starting and Adriaan Strauss ready to enter the fray you know there will be no chance of South Africa meekly lolloping away from snarling Australians at the breakdown. There will be a contest, but South Africa should land a wet slap in the last quarter. Aussie hopes are pinned on snake-dancing away from that.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Springboks narrowly see off Wales to reach the World Cup final, where they will play England 2019 Rugby World Cup Semi-final: Wales 19-16 South AfricaHead-to-headPlayed 36Wales wins 6South Africa wins 29Draws 1Did you know?Wales scrum-half Gareth Davies won his 50th cap while Alun Wyn Jones joined Sergio Parisse in second place in terms of all-time international appearances, both playing 142 Tests.Tendai Mtawarira started his 101st Test for South Africa, the third prop to reach this milestone after Tony Woodcock (New Zealand, 105) and Jason Leonard (England and the British & Irish Lions, 104).Faf de Klerk and Handre Pollard were the starting half-backs for the 15th time since the start of 2018. Only Ireland’s Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton (16) have started together more in that period.In A NutshellWhat a contrast this was to the previous day’s semi-final. Despite the narrowness of the scoreline and the fact the winner wasn’t clear until the final minutes, it came nowhere close to matching the intensity of England’s win over New Zealand and the stadium was eerily quiet with little to generate cheers or simply engage the supporters.It was something of a let-down for a game of this magnitude – you expect more drama and skill in a World Cup semi-final. Instead the loudest noise came when the whole crowd partook in singing Sweet Caroline at the break.Boxing clever: Gareth Davies kicks the ball clear (Getty Images)The amount of kicking meant neither side could create any fluid attacks or build momentum. Instead the ball was passed through maybe a couple of pairs of hands before the boot got involved.Wales put in 41 kicks from hand and South Africa 40. That’s a kick a minute! And it was the box-kicks of scrum-halves Faf de Klerk and Gareth Davies that continually peppered the grass in the first half.Wales did get a bit of traction down the left-hand side on the couple of occasions when they did keep ball in hand. One attack was called back for a forward pass while another led to a penalty shortly before the break.Wales were not helped by first-half injuries either – Tomas Francis leaving the field with a serious-looking arm injury sustained while tackling Duane Vermeulen and George North appeared to hurt his hamstring when he chased a Biggar cross-kick.On target: Handre Pollard kicks a penalty against Wales (Getty Images)It was 9-9 early in the second half as Biggar slotted his third penalty to match Handre Pollard’s trio. Yet it wasn’t until the 57th minute that the game had its first try.South Africa attacked from a lineout in Wales’ half and after Pollard had taken play to five metres out, the ball was spread wide to Damian De Allende, who shrugged off both Dan Biggar and Tomos Williams to stretch over the line.That perked up the crowd – and they didn’t have to wait long for another try. Wales opted for a five-metre lineout from a penalty and pounded away at the South Africa line with pick-and-goes. Full stretch: Damian De Allende scores South Africa’s only try (Getty Images) MASSIVE!Bold, decisive and brilliant execution. A creaking Wales scrum does enough and the ball finds Adams on the wing who finishes expertly#RWC2019 #ITVRugby #WALvRSA pic.twitter.com/7vedk01XyK— ITV Rugby (@ITVRugby) October 27, 2019From here the match could go either way for there was little to separate the teams. Wales came again and Rhys Patchell attempted a drop-goal but it fell short. Then South Africa were awarded a couple of penalties in quick succession and Pollard duly slotted the second one to put the Springboks in front with five minutes to go. And from there they held on to win and will play England in next weekend’s final.Star ManIn an unglamorous game such as this the award must go to a workhorse and Pieter-Steph du Toit fulfilled that brief for South Africa. He chased everything, hit everything, carried hard and harried Welsh ball-carriers. His 18 tackles was the most of any player on the pitch and his work-rate was immense.Hard graft: Pieter-Steph Du Toit tackles Ross Moriarty (Getty Images)The ReactionWales coach Warren Gatland: “It was tough encounter. We knew it would be an arm wrestle and we stayed in that arm wrestle. We got back into it but in the last four or five minutes unfortunately we were penalised, then conceded, and the game got away from us. I’m not taking anything away from South Africa – they played really well. But I’m proud of the boys and what we’ve achieved.”South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus: “We knew from our analysis that they strangle the life out of opposition. We expected that and we matched that. It probably wasn’t the best spectacle to watch, but the boys stuck to their guns and adapted to that.”The Teams Wales: Leigh Halfpenny; George North (Owen Watkin 40), Jonathan Davies, Hadleigh Parkes, Josh Adams; Dan Biggar (Rhys Patchell 58), Gareth Davies (Tomos Williams 48); Wyn Jones (Rhys Carre 55), Ken Owens (Elliot Dee 73), Tomas Francis (Dillon Lewis 36), Jake Ball (Adam Beard 60), Alun Wyn Jones (capt), Aaron Wainwright (Aaron Shingler 68), Justin Tipuric, Ross Moriarty.Try: Adams 65. Con: Halfpenny. Pens: Biggar 3.South Africa: Willie le Roux (Frans Steyn 69); S’Busiso Nkosi, Lukhanyo Am, Damian De Allende, Makazole Mapimpi; Handre Pollard, Faf de Klerk; Tendai Mtawarira (Steven Kitshoff 47), Mbongeni Mbonambi (Malcolm Marx 47), Frans Malherbe (Vincent Koch 47), Eben Etzebeth (RG Snyman 53), Lood de Jager (Franco Mostert 58), Siya Kolisi (capt, Francois Louw 69), Pieter-Steph Du Toit, Duane Vermeulen.Try: De Allende 57. Cons: Pollard. Pens: Pollard 4. Another penalty followed and Alun Wyn Jones opted for a scrum in front of the posts – a big call but it paid off. The ball went from Ross Moriarty to Tomos Williams to Jonathan Davies to Josh Adams and the wing went over in the corner. Leigh Halfpenny nailed the conversion from out wide and it was level again at 16-16.

The house is located on the western coast of Sweden on the Onsala peninsula. The area is originally a rural landscape with small fishing communities. Today the area consist mainly out of summer houses and smaller marinas. The site can be described as a wild garden surrounded by an old boulder wall made of weathered natural stones from the nearby coastline. A small passage in the stone wall leads directly to the shore through a small field/patch of common reed.

In order to preserve the views for the neighboring house towards the sea, the building is lowered into the ground. This creates a close visual connection between all rooms in the new house to the garden and uninterrupted views toward the ocean.

The base underneath the soil is constructed as in-situ cast concrete, fair-faced towards the interior. The house above ground is made as a timber frame construction with aluminum framed windows and larch wood panels. Above the windows, there is horizontal larch weatherboarding and a sedum grass roof.

The claim was made during a recent presentation of the interim report of an ongoing research project, combining research into donor values and motivations and online behaviour.Clayton said: “People behave differently online than in the world of traditional fundraising. The Americans have worked this out and cracked the secret of turning traffic into donations. 85% of UK online fundraisers have still not discovered this secret.“Simply applying direct mail methodology to the digital world does not work. People are more honest and more real online. They let their subconscious rule behind the anonymity of their keyboard. The broadcast ask is not as powerful as the peer-to-peer approach, and old fashioned brand-stamps are not as effective as genuine, passionate user-generated content.

Online fundraising in UK “18 months behind the US” says Alan Clayton Tagged with: Digital Research / statistics The Good Agency “We need to behave more like the Americans – their cultural directness, open expression of emotion and advanced understanding of technology are all characteristics the UK fundraiser needs to intuitively develop.”The interim report was presented at the end of the first phase of a two year research project. One of the consultants working on phase two is Ted Hart, online fundraising expert from the US, who has been studying UK Internet fundraising since 2005.Hart said: “In the last 18 months, charities in the UK have been making good progress using the Internet to maximise their fundraising potential. However, charities in the UK still lag behind the United States in key areas required for the integration of online and offline techniques. Social networking sites everywhere have made a big impact on the way organisations are communicating. The UK needs to learn more about how to turn these communications into funds.”Hart and Clayton will be presenting ten key outcomes of their research and experience at Digital Leap, the conference for online fundraisers and communicators which is taking place in London on 15 June.www.digitalleap.co.uk

Gateshead-based mailing house Washington Direct Mail (WDM) is offering an annual scholarship award for existing UK university and prospective students.It will provide £1,300 in annual Scholarship Awards to three individuals who are currently attending or planning to attend a United Kingdom University. The prizes will consist of:First place: £1000Second place: £200Third place: £100Jason Sullock, UK Marketing Manager for WDM, explained the initiative. He said: “We’ve been looking at this for a while but it’s come into sharper focus with the government’s intention to increase the interest rates on student loans.”He added that scholarship awards tie in well with both WDM’s business and social responsibility aims.He explained: “We understand it can be hard for some students and their families to make ends meet. It’s not just the tuition fees, think of the IT equipment that’s needed as standard these days, as well as the books, the transportation, the clothing, and that’s without talking about the utility bills, day-to-day housing and food costs. In fact the estimated cost of attending a three-year university course at somewhere like the University of Manchester these days is £28,170.”He also wanted the company to encourage the next generation of managers to join the digital printing and direct mail industry or to explore their use in their business planning.He said: “Direct Mail has evolved out of all recognition since the introduction of digital marketing but still remains an essential tool in any managers promotional toolkit.”How to apply for the scholarshipsTo apply, applicants should submit a 750+ word essay by 5pm on September 30th 2017, addressing the title: “The Opportunities and Benefits of Integrating Personalised Digital Printing and Direct Mail into a modern Business Marketing Strategy.”Six finalists will be chosen by the Washington Direct Mail Scholarship Judging Team. Their essays will then be posted and promoted online. A public vote will then determine the winning Washington Direct Mail Scholarship Awards.Sullock said: “Whilst we’re not Microsoft or Sage by any means, we strongly believe that if you’re fortunate enough to be doing well in business, you should always try to give something back to society.”continued Jason, “This is our way of doing that. It’s the right thing to do, and we hope it will help three students on their way, whilst at the same time highlighting to future generations of managers, entrepreneurs and business owners exactly how usefulmodern direct marketing can be.” 133 total views, 1 views today Advertisement 134 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is using today’s publication of its 2017 World Press Freedom Index as the occasion to launch a major communication campaign entitled “Spoilers for Freedom.” See the video “The campaign’s aim is to warn the public about the way violence against the media is on the rise and is becoming commonplace in democracies,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “In response to the insults, smears and pressure of every kind, including financial, we want to point out that no attack on media freedom should be accepted.”Who better for this than exile journalists who had to flee their countries? Who better to describe what the end of media freedom means, to embody the cruel realities behind the colours on our world press freedom map, which are getting darker by the year?”Spoiler alert: click on this and you will know how the story ends The campaign is based on the concept of “plot spoilers,” a term used to identify something that will reveal the ending or important developments in a novel, film or TV series and thereby “spoil” the suspense for the reader or viewer, who must otherwise wait to find out what happens.In this campaign, exile journalists describe what happened when media freedom ended in their countries, thereby serving as plot spoilers that warn us not to let things take the same course in ours.A worldwide community of “spoilers”Launched today (26 April) and accessible on the RSF website, the #SPOILERFORFREEDOM platform so far includes interviews with journalists from Democratic Republic of Congo, Uzbekistan, Burundi, Turkey and Azerbaijan. The accounts of exile journalists from other countries all over the world will be added in the course of the year.RSF thanks France24, AZFP, Le Quotidien and Le Petit Journal programme on Canal+ for their help in developing this campaign, GangLife Production for filming the interviews, and the Maison des Journalistes for the use of their premises for the filming. La Maison des Journalistes is an independant Paris-based non-profit organization. Since 2002, it has been receiving and helping journalists that are exiled or refugees in France, who fled their country because they did their job of journalist, risking their lives and freedom. It provides them with assistance at every stage of their exile and gives them the means to express themselves freely, above all via the online newspaper L’oeil de l’exile. La Maison des Journalistes has also a vocation to sensitize young publics in general about the need to respect fundamental and citizen values, through its educational programs Renvoyé Spécial (done everywhere in France), Presse 19 (in Europe).
