Sales rocketed by 35% to €412m and earnings before interest and deductions improved by 15% to $168m.Image: B64 (Andy Borysowski)last_img read more

Rugby’s Greatest: Victor Matfield

Test span: 2001-2015South Africa caps: 127 (121 starts)Test points: 35 (7T) Rugby’s Greatest: Victor MatfieldNot even retirement halted Victor Matfield’s influence on the international stage. Two-and-a-half years after bowing out of rugby when the Springboks were dumped out of the 2011 World Cup by Australia, the shaggy-haired lock ended his hiatus and returned to Super Rugby action with the Blue Bulls, for whom he had been serving as a lineout coach.That June, Matfield captained South Africa to a 47-13 defeat of a World XV in Cape Town at the age of 37 and promptly added to his tally of 110 caps in the ensuing two-match series against Wales.Four months later, he played all 80 minutes of an epic 27-25 victory over New Zealand at Ellis Park. It was the All Blacks’ maiden loss in 22 outings and provided indisputable evidence that Matfield could still mix it with the best on the planet.Though the Bulls endured a torrid Super Rugby campaign in 2015, Matfield was included in Heyneke Meyer’s squad for the Rugby Championship, and went to a fourth World Cup with the Bok’s.In truth, his status as a South Africa great was secure before the end of the last decade. Matfield’s mathematical set-piece prowess in a complementary engine-room partnership with bruising Bakkies Botha was a mainstay of the 2007 World Cup success and 2009 series defeat of the Lions.

The mighty Munsterman wasted no time in returning the compliment.“He’s the best lineout forward in the world and has been for a long time. To be able to take two years out and come back as good, if not better, than he ever was is an incredible achievement.” Rugby’s Greatest: John Eales Rugby’s Greatest: Martin Johnson One of the greatest second-rows to play the… Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.Also make sure you know about the Groups, Warm-ups, Dates, Fixtures, Venues, TV Coverage, Qualified Teams by clicking on the highlighted links.Finally, don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Macmillan launches second TV fundraising campaign

first_imgMacmillan launches second TV fundraising campaign Macmillan Cancer Relief launched its second television fundraising campaign on 1 March 2004 with the aim of delivering new long-term donors and reducing Macmillan’s reliance on traditional direct marketing media.The new DRTV commercial aims to increase Macmillan’s supporter base through a call to action for a monthly donation via direct debit of £2 or £3. The ad was created by direct marketing agency Clark McKay and Walpole who commissioned BAFTA-award-winning director Adrian Shergold (“The Second Coming”, “Inspector Morse”, “Early Doors”). The 90-second advert highlights the emotional journey of a cancer patient and features a man making a home video to record his thoughts following the bombshell of a cancer diagnosis. The home video focuses on the difference a Macmillan nurse’s involvement made to the family’s ability to cope with the diagnosis. The voice-over is provided by actress Shelia Hancock.

Quangos stifling recovery – Kinsella

first_img Previous articleTrolley jam at Regional HospitalNext articleGemma Hayes returns to Dolan’s Warehouse admin Email Print Twitter Advertisement WhatsAppcenter_img Linkedin Facebook Too many state agencies involvedECONOMIC recovery in the Mid West is being suffocated by an overkill of agencies and reports, claims leading UL economist, Dr Stephen Kinsella.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He argues that organisations such as Shannon Development, Enterprise Ireland, the Limerick City and County Enterprise Boards, the Mid-Western Jobs Task Force, IDA, FAS, Failte Ireland, Mid West Regional Authority, Tourism Ireland and Regeneration, have funds diverted to them for a multiplicity of purposes.Dr Kinsella says there are altogether too many state agencies, often leading to a crossover of roles.“The Irish solution to any problem is to set up a committee, and it doesn’t work”.He points out that reports are occasionally commissioned and often left to rest on shelves, and despite all the hype and promises, nothing has been achieved since the closure of the Dell manufacturing plant.He expressed fears that the €22.8 million Dell Globalisation fund will be squandered: “I don’t think this money will be well spent. I think we will see a cack-handed approach to the division of funds as every agency in the region will expect a cut”.The economist believes that the fund should be the responsibility of one agency: “It should be the job of one person to ensure that the money is spent correctly and gets tangible results.“We will have five to 10 agencies all looking for small slices, or a large organisation like FÁS hoovering it up, and it’s simply not the case that FAS create jobs… the results speak for themselves”.According to Dr Kinsella, the desire to tackle serious problems is diluted by the abundance of state agencies in the Mid West: “As far as I know, everyone of them has a different mandate and I’m not aware of a common set of metrics”.He feels there is massive difference between what politicians and people see as progress: “Politicians perceive a problem, set up a commission and have them write up a report. In relation to Dell, at a political level the job is done… yet no jobs have been created”.He is adamant that If one person is given responsibility for the globalisation fund, their performance should be measured.“We have to have transparency and accountability. There should be a target of cost per job created and if these targets are not reached and sufficient jobs are not created, there should be sanctions”.Meanwhile, Fine Gael TD for Limerick East, Kieran O’Donnell, agreed that one body should be responsible for distributing the Dell fund: “I would agree with making one person accountable as long as it doesn’t create another layer of bureaucracy”.However, he has blamed the government for failing to implement strategies which have been compiled for Limerick and the Mid West.He declared: “The recommendations of the Mid Western Jobs Taskforce are lying on a shelf in government buildings similar to the Regeneration document, launched with great fanfare in 2007”.He will be seeking a debate on Regeneration when the Dail resumes on January 19. “I will be bringing up all of these matters with the Taoiseach and the Tanaiste as the people in the regeneration areas are in a state of limbo”.He is angry with the way Regeneration has been handled politically, and feels it should be fast-tracked.“You can’t have a situation where you give people in these areas false hope, and I think they are now losing trust in the process itself”.Deputy O’Donnell feels that Limerick has become the forgotten city as nothing has been done to rectify massive job losses over the past year.He said “We are losing a lot in Limerick and gaining very little, not one single IDA backed job has been created in Limerick since Dell announced the closure of their manufacturing facility last year”.The Fine Gael TD believes immediate action needs to be taken to address chronic unemployment figures in Limerick: “Immediate government intervention is required as the increase in unemployment here is well above the national average”.

first_imgnarvikk/iStock(ST. LOUIS) — A family in Missouri broke health officials’ self-quarantine instructions after two family members left their home despite a positive test for the novel coronavirus.St. Louis County executive Dr. Sam Page revealed in a press conference that the family of an unidentified patient who recently tested presumptive positive for COVID-19 violated the county Health Department’s instructions to isolate themselves at home.According to Page, a woman called their coronavirus hotline on Thursday experiencing symptoms and has since tested positive for coronavirus.Instead of heeding the health officials’ guidance, the patient’s father, according to Page, took his other daughter to a school function Saturday evening.In a since-deleted Facebook post, Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School shared photos from the school’s “father-daughter dinner dance.”The private Catholic school shared an update Sunday on Facebook, writing that classes and other activities would be canceled on Monday “to gather information and guidance from health officials.”“The health and safety of our students, staff and their families will always be our top priority,” the school said. “We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this situation. We are taking this important step out of an abundance of caution. We will communicate more information to all of our families via email as early as possible on Monday.”Page explained at the press conference on Saturday that when officials learned of the broken quarantine, county health directors informed the man “that he must remain in his home or they will issue a formal quarantine that will require him and the rest of his family to stay in their home by the force of law.”He called it “a tale of two reactions” and “a study of how people should and should not react to the coronavirus.”“From everything we can gather, the patient had conducted herself responsibly and maturely and she is to be commended for complying with the health department’s instructions,” Page said. “The patient’s father did not act consistently with the health department’s instructions.”The county is planning to implement state-of-the-art strategies and provide information through it’s various channels including the hotline, website and social media to disseminate resources and updates on coronavirus.Page reiterated the importance of hand washing, covering mouths when sneezing or coughing, staying home if sick and following all the CDC recommendations — especially if you have been in contact with anyone who is symptomatic.County health officials have communicated their expectations for the family in a letter and Page said he expects them to follow the quarantine guidelines.
