The Top 5 Rugby Magicians of All Time

first_imgFriday Apr 18, 2014 The Top 5 Rugby Magicians of All Time Rugby HQ in Australia have put together their Top 5 list of the best ever magicians on the rugby field. While it’s obviously subjective, it’s a solid list and it would be tough to disagree with their top three selections, and number one in particular.Starting at number five, Joe Rokocoko was a lethal finisher for the Blues and All Blacks. His dazzling feet and ability to beat defenders when in space made him a top try scorer. He could create tries out of half chances, as can be seen here. Sorry, Brent Russell.Welsh legend Gareth Edwards is probably best known these days for that try he scored for the Barbarians against the All Blacks in 1973, but for years he terrorised defences and to many up north in particular, is the best scrumhalf to ever play the game.Having met the great David Campese recently, it’s great to see him at three on this list. Campo could pull off the impossible, and is of course the man that made the goose-step so famous. His jinking runs and ball skills were unmatched in his generation.“I always wanted to do something different. I could have stood on the wing and did nothing, or go out there and try and express yourself, and that’s what I decided to do,” he once said.The only guy on the list still playing Test rugby, Quade Cooper is a natural fit when it comes to thinking of players that can do the seemingly impossible on the rugby field. Some of his best bits aren’t shown in this clip, but you can see a few in the Related Posts below this article.In the end, there can be only one and that man is without a doubt King Carlos Spencer. The only player who has come close since is Cooper, but for those of us who watched Spencer in his heyday, he will always be remembered as the most audacious, enthralling entertainer.As with Cooper, have a browse of our Related Posts to see some of Spencer’s best moments, which obviously weren’t able to be featured in this compilation but are posted in our archive.Other notable mentions, and players who could have squeezed into the top five somewhere, would be Brian O’Driscoll, Shane Williams, Christian Cullen and Waisale Serevi. O’Driscoll has already been featured in his own Top 5 video though, and Serevi was a Sevens star.How different would your ‘Top 5 Magicians’ be, or are you happy with the choices? ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Top 5 compilations Related Articles 240 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 Biggest Hits of the Year 242 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 BLOOPERS of the Year! 244 WEEKS AGO Powerful Top 5 ‘Tongan Thor’ moments From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Jonathan Faauli suspended for 4 weeks for big tackle

first_imgMonday Apr 3, 2017 Jonathan Faauli suspended for 4 weeks for big tackle Chiefs centre Jonathan Faauli has pleaded guilty to committing a dangerous tackle during his team’s round six Super Rugby match against the Bulls in Hamilton on Saturday. He was cited after appearing to contravene Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent.The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee has accepted the guilty plea and suspended him from all forms of the game for 4 weeks, up to and including Saturday 29 April 2017.In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following: “Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, including from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Aaron Lloyd, the Foul Play Review Committee upheld the citing under Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent.”  “With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks. However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s early guilty plea, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 4 weeks.”“The player is therefore suspended for 4 weeks, up to and including Saturday 29 April 2017.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

DSC claims one third of applications to trusts are poorly targeted

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 6 May 2010 | News The Directory of Social Change claims that “over one-third of applications to UK charitable grantmakers in the last year were ineligible”, according to its survey of 2,500 grantmaking trusts and foundations. As a result, it believes that many charities are wasting time and money with poorly targeted funding bids.The survey found that more than 361,000 out of nearly one million applications were rejected because they did not meet the funder’s stated criteria.DSC estimated that, if each application took 10 minutes to write – “a very conservative estimate” as the charity points out – this would mean “nearly 7 years of wasted effort every year”. It added that, if each application were posted first class, this would amount to around £141,000 in wasted postage stamps.DSC’s Director of Policy and Research Ben Wittenberg said: “This research is part of our Great Giving campaign to improve relationships between charities and their funders. We wanted to get a sense of the scale of the problem, in order to start some discussion and debate about causes and potential solutions.”He acknowledged that fundraisers were not always at fault. “We know”, he said, “that a main cause of poorly targeted applications is that too often funders aren’t clear about what they want to fund and how their application process works – leaving it up to the prospective applicant to guess.”Yet there were still many applications, according to funders, “which don’t show any knowledge of the guidelines or criteria which are available”.DSC recommends that fundraisers carefully research who they apply to and read any guidelines thoroughly, and also make contact with the funder if they can to ask for advice prior to submitting an application.www.dsc.org.ukPhoto: Kapungo on Flickr.com DSC claims one third of applications to trusts are poorly targetedlast_img read more

Harb and License to Trill partnered with the lung cancer-focused nonprofit LUNGevity Foundation and hosted a 5K Neon Glow Run.License to Trill and six other a cappella groups -including Here Comes Treble and the Horned Tones – performed in a free concert in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom.Harb said License to Trill started out as a way to help her cope with father’s death.“I didn’t realize singing was important to me until he passed away,” Harb said.While her father wasn’t a singer himself, he would have loved to see her perform, Harb said.“My dad was so into coming to every single one of the performances.” Harb said. “Even if I was really bad he would be there.”Sabrina Harb poses with her father, Charlie.Harb designed the group to be philanthropy based. She said she hopes each year the group’s president will pick a charity special to them.“What’s the good of a singing group if you aren’t going to give back to the community?” Harb said.According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is responsible for 1 in 4 cancer-related deaths. In addition, more people die of lung cancer than colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancers combined.Harb says she’s learned to not take the small things for granted.“You don’t really realize how precious life is and how every single thing you do has such a big influence on your life,” Harb said.

Fannie Mae Update: Mortgage Servicer Sentiment Amid Pandemic Challenges

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago As we close in on the one-year anniversary of the global COVID-19 pandemic, housing remains a bright spot on the economic landscape, despite challenges such as managing homeowners in forbearance and navigating the impact of foreclosure moratoria. Given the expansive nature of the pandemic and its fallout, it’s hard not to draw parallels with another devasting event that directly impacted the housing market–the 2008 financial crash and its aftermath.  However, according to the latest Fannie Mae’s Mortgage Lender Sentiment Survey, conducted in early September 2020, more than 100 mortgage executives said, despite similarities, the 2008 financial crash is still considered a more disruptive experience for homeowners, lenders, servicers, and others.  According to the survey, the biggest challenge servicers are facing due to COVID-19 is offering assistance to impacted homeowners via forbearance programs and in communicating post-forbearance repayment plan options.  However, it’s safe to say that lessons learned from the 2008 upheaval have provided an advantage to dealing with the 2020 COVID crisis. Mortgage lenders and servicers have been able to more deftly adapt to the pandemic’s difficulties.  Servicers said that clearly explaining post-forbearance payment plans to homeowners was the most frequent issue. Explaining potential implications of taking a forbearance plan was the second most difficult issue and thirdly, periodically checking with homeowners to see if they are ready to exit forbearance took up the most time. Most respondents of the 2020 Fannie Mae survey said most aspects of servicing are less challenging this time, “including data and technology standards, the process by which homeowners request assistance, and more generally helping homeowners overcome hardship and stay in their homes.” The one area in which respondents said it was more challenging in 2020 was keeping up with policy changes from investors. It remains to be seen just what further issues may come as a result of COVID-19 because the housing industry has never handled this specific challenge. But it’s certain to say that industry is working together as much as possible to address the common issues created by this global pandemic.
