Phil Vickery on the Lions: Part 1

first_img Phil Vickery was a fresh-faced Lions tourist in 2001 in Australia and a gnarled World Cup winning tighthead 2009 in South Africa so he knows all about the intensity of touring. In a candid interview,  he explains to Rugby World editor, Owain Jones, what he’s made of the 2017 tour, the Lions’ progress to date and how the Lions need to leave a positive imprint in New Zealand…How do you sum up a Lions tour to New Zealand?“It’s such a difficult tour. Going to play the double World Champions, a side who only seem to lose once a year. It’s also a country obsessed by rugby. In the pubs and offices, rugby is everything to them. The intensity, the passion is all enveloping. It is so intense out there. ”What have you made of their performance on the pitch?“The Lions have lost games by a small margins; games they could easily have won, and depending who you speak to, many people can see progress. The thing with the All Blacks is they perform better for longer periods than anyone else but I’d never seen Canterbury make so many mistakes and they were rammed with All Blacks.”Line-break: The Lions have been creating chances but are yet to find their clinical edgeHas Warren Gatland got his preparation right, or have they given the Kiwis too much respect?“I think it’s good to see the tradition and respect the Lions are showing the Maori people. For me, personally, it’s hugely important. We need to respect each other on and off the pitch. Where I started at Bude Rugby Club, it was about having your boots clean, having clean kit and shaking hands but when you cross the whitewash, it’s game on. I think Gats has got it spot on but he knows he will be judged only on results. We need to make sure that a footprint for what the Lions stands for is left there so when we go back in 2029, they will have fond memories of us.”FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREHas the way the Lions have performed so far in the tour given you belief that the Lions can upset the odds and beat the All Blacks?“Well if we think we’re going to scrum, line-out drive and maul our way to victory, forget about it. We have to play. It’s seeing weaknesses, applying pressure. I think defensively we’re very strong, we just have to make sure we don’t get too narrow.”You love a scrum, what have you made of the set-piece so far?“I’ve seen some whingeing about the scrummage but you have to scrum straight and not push until the ball comes in – that’s the rules and they’re not new. As an old prop forward, I love a scrummage. I love seeing the confrontation, it’s a huge part of our game, but I don’t want to see penalty after penalty. I want people around the world to look at a scrum, ‘wow, I want to be part of that’”. Hard graft: Phil Vickery applauds the Lions fans after their victory in the Third Test Rugby World took a pew with England and Lions legend Phil Vickery to discuss the tour in New Zealand with the First Test looming… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Earning his stripes: Vickery as a young prop on the 2011 tour to AustraliaWhy have the Lions struggled to be clinical in crossing the whitewash this tour?“It’s about pressure, the feeling they have to score. The new combinations don’t help. There have been some monumental defensive efforts by Kiwi sides and some bad luck and we’ve seen what’s happened. As Alun Wyn (Jones) said, we haven’t got to worry about it. It’ll come. The Lions can’t go into their shells. They will have to attack, not by doing silly stuff but winning first-phase, and playing.”And what about the All Blacks’ style of play?“When you play the All Blacks, it’s not just and A, B, C, D. It’s ball-carry, dynamic at the breakdown, round the corner, clean break. Yes they have a framework, but they play what’s in front of them. Defensively, they bounce back up and fill the line. It’s innate rugby knowledge. Rugby is a very simple game done well.”last_img read more

DEC Coronavirus Appeal reaches £30m in funds raised Advertisementcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Coronavirus Appeal has raised £30 million in the four months since its launch on 14 July.This total includes a donation from J.K. Rowling’s charitable trust, The Volant Charitable Trust, funded by proceeds from the author’s new children’s book, The Ickabog, published this week.DEC Chief Executive Saleh Saeed said:“The UK public has demonstrated huge generosity at an extremely difficult time, helping people around the world facing the pandemic without the safety net of the NHS. We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported the DEC Coronavirus Appeal so far.“The Volant Charitable Trust has helped push our appeal over the £30 million milestone, allowing our member charities to reach even more people with life-saving assistance. But the pandemic has triggered an unprecedented crisis in the world’s most fragile places and there is much more to do to protect people from Covid-19 and its secondary effects, such as hunger which is already killing children in Yemen and may soon be in Syria.”Funds donated to the DEC Coronavirus Appeal will help the most vulnerable people in six of the world’s most fragile states: Yemen and Syria; Somalia, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo; and Afghanistan. A total of 24 million displaced people live in crowded camps and settlements in these countries. The appeal also includes the world’s largest refugee camp – in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, where more than 850,000 Rohingya refugees have sought sanctuary.In the first six months of the humanitarian response, DEC funds are primarily being spent on water, sanitation and hygiene activities (31%), such as providing clean water, handwashing stations and hygiene kits, with a secondary focus on health projects (23%), including isolation and treatment centres, supporting fragile health systems and providing PPE to frontline medics. Other priorities include providing food (11%) and supporting livelihoods (11%).The appeal will remain open until Spring 2021. Tagged with: appeals COVID-19last_img read more

He is also only the second TCU receiver ever drafted in the first round (Josh Doctson, 2016).What makes Reagor such a steal for the Eagles is his speed and playmaking ability. Though he ran just a 4.47 at the combine, his 42.0-inch vertical leap and 138.0-inch broad jump give a glimpse at his explosive nature. This was only solidified a few weeks later when he ran a 40-yard dash clocked at 4.28 and 4.22 by scouts at his virtual pro day.Reagor will fill a much-needed hole at wide receiver for an Eagles team that struggled mightily in that area in 2019. In his three years in the purple and white, the receiver totaled 148 receptions, 2248 receiving yards and 22 receiving touchdowns, which all rank in the top six all-time in TCU football history.Jalen Reagor (1) makes a cut for TCU against SMU in 2019.

A member of the 2019 All-Big 12 second team as a punt and kick returner, the junior finished second in the country with 312 punt return yards to go with two scores.On the defensive side, Gladney joins Jason Verrett (2014) and Jim Shofner (1958) as the only TCU defensive backs to be selected in the first round.Like Reagor, Gladney possesses electric speed (4.48 at the combine) that allowed him to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb (selected 17th overall by Dallas) in the Big 12.Jeff Gladney (12) makes a strong tackle against Kansas State in 2018 at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoGladney collected 106 tackles, five interceptions and 43 passes defended as a four-year starter at TCU. His senior campaign proved him to be one of the country’s top cover corners, leading the Big 12 with 14 pass breakups and earning a spot on the All-Big 12 first team.Minnesota was expected to take a defensive back with three of the four they’ve picked in the first two rounds since 2013 have changed teams. Gladney provides them with a physical corner who should see the field quite a bit in 2020.After etching themselves among the greatest to ever play at Amon G. Carter Stadium, it’s no surprise that Jalen Reagor and Jeff Gladney have new homes in the NFL. Behind the quickness and knack for making plays they both possess, Frog fans could look forward to seeing them making plays on Sundays for years to come.

And the Verdict Is …

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / And the Verdict Is … And the Verdict Is … The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Print Features Ethics 2017-08-04 Brianna Gilpin Editors Note: This article was originally featured in the August issue of DS News.Miami, Florida, with its beautiful beaches and mild weather, draws in homebuyers from all over the country—and the globe. Though the sunny state of Florida totaled nearly 46,000 homes sold in 2016, 2008 was a completely different story, marking the state low of 25,900.With an economic recession in full swing, Rashmi Airan was approached by a real estate developer client who saw an opportunity to exploit this declining market.  Rashmi was involved with executing creative transactions which would presumably help set her family up with financial stability.A Series of Bad DecisionsAiran, a former Miami lawyer and first-generation immigrant of Indian parents, always felt the need to exude perfection. After graduating a Kent Scholar with high honors from Columbia Law School, she worked for several law firms and eventually opened her own independent law practice. Airan was the breadwinner of her family, trying to achieve that cultural measure of success, gain status in her community, and assure overall advancement. Airan finally realized and took accountability that she had made a series of bad decisions. She eventually found herself in federal prison, and all she could think was “this can’t be happening.”In mid-October 2007, Airan began dealings with a South Florida real estate client who needed legal assistance in the closing of condos he was selling. She was to be the closing agent, coordinating transactions with the banks and getting approvals. However, an issue arose when the HUD documents didn’t include one detail: the real estate developer was giving money back to buyers as an incentive.The developer was promising rental guarantees to buyers over a specific period of time for a specific amount of money. Ultimately, this affected the loan-to-value ratio and, by only showing what was coming out of the escrow account—not the seller’s money going to the management company then back to the buyer, the government ruled it was a case of bank fraud conspiracy, and Airan was linked.“I assumed that every other developer and every other real estate transaction lawyer was doing something similar— maybe not exactly the same, but something in the same realm of creative transactions—and that somehow made it OK for me to do it,” Airan said. Airan was a solo practitioner and thought the volume of business she was handling would create immediate financial stability for her loved ones. Because of this, according to Airan’s mentor, Kendall Coffey, she rationalized it all rather than question or confirm what was really going on. “What I think Rashmi recognizes is that when those choices were presented to her, she rationalized,” said Coffey, Partner and Founder of Coffey Burlington Law Firm. “She found ways—which smart people can often do, at least in her own mind—to justify the decisions that were made and perhaps at the time the minimization of her responsibility.” The buyers were considered “straw buyers”, meaning they were sought out by a developer through various representatives to use their good credit to get loans. During this time—before the 2008 housing crisis—it was considered a “no-income, no-asset loan.” A person could just say they made $83,000, and the banks would believe them at face value. The buyer didn’t have to prove it; they just had to have good credit. So, when developers found someone willing, they would say, for example, “We’ll pay you $30,000 after the closing if you take out a mortgage in your name.” This is what happened in Airan’s case, which she discovered after indictment.  Everyone from the buyers and sellers to the realtors, brokers, and, of course, Airan benefitted in some way.  Rashmi received the legal and title fees from each closing she handled—but she received nothing more.“I didn’t get any additional money,” Airan said. “The only money I made, which was still significant, was in closing fees.”Pleading GuiltyIn spring of 2011, Rashmi got a knock on her door. It was the FBI. Agents presented documents from 2007 and 2008 and asked her detailed questions without her having a lawyer present. Through this interaction, they gathered enough evidence for a grand jury subpoena that led to Airan’s indictment in April 2014. By August of the same year, Airan changed her plea to guilty and accepted that she was wrong, making her official plea December 19, 2014. There were so many players in the 2008 crisis, and hardly anyone was tried, let alone sentenced, yet there Airan was, awaiting sentencing. As much as Airan was hurt by what happened and felt that others should—and could—be penalized, she says that she would never wish the experience of being away from her children for anyone.Airan says it was hard for her to come to terms with what happened, but she’s done being angry about it.“I’ve had to come to a place of peace because if I am angry about it, it’s just going to create bitterness and negative energy,” Airan said. “I have just forgiven myself and accepted what I did and moved on.”According to Coffey, prison sentences are relatively rare for bank/mortgage fraud cases and Airan’s case could have gone on without prison time.“For those who somehow fell onto the government’s radar—especially attorneys—there were those who went to prison,” Coffey said. “In her case, it was relatively brief, but her many supporters were disappointed. It’s not unheard of. I would describe it as more disappointing than surprising.”By June 16, 2015, Airan was sentenced and surrendered two months later. She was sentenced to 366 days in federal prison with a $19 million judgment against future earnings. According to Airan, this day of surrender was by far the hardest. As she shuffled through the underground tunnel from the Miami courthouse to the federal prison, she donned handcuffs, shackles, and waist chains that solidified just how serious the situation was.“Being processed, getting my DNA tested, stripping, being searched, putting on prison clothing—all of that entire experience was like a surreal, out-of-body experience,” she said. “I was sitting there thinking, ‘I’m a Columbia Law grad. This can’t be happening.’”When Airan finally got to her room, there was not even a mattress on the metal frame. She searched other rooms and beds and finally found a bed roll that she says didn’t even qualify as a mattress. After 10 days, Airan was lucky enough to be transferred to Coleman, the only women’s minimum-security federal working camp in Florida. Though the transfer was a hard and demeaning process, she says she couldn’t help but feel blessed in a weird way. “I’m sitting in handcuffs and shackles on a bus driving between Miami Federal Detention Center to Federal Coleman Complex, and I think to myself, ‘Thank you, God that I get to see the sunrise,’” Airan said. At the first prison she was in, Airan said inmates never saw daylight or fresh air the entire duration of their stay. Airan, whose name means “the rays of the morning sun,” said the sun gives her positive energy and strength, to the point that that was one of the three things she wanted to do the day of her surrender.“Since that morning, I hadn’t seen the sunrise,” Airan said. “I get it; it had only been 10 days, but it felt like a lifetime. That was really powerful.”Seeing it ThroughAiran was committed to making the most of her life in prison. She made friends, she learned how to crochet, and she even tried to talk her friends into working out with her. She also handled the garbage every night as her job which, Airan says, gave her a lot of time to think and reflect on everything that had happened.“It gave me a lot of time to learn and think about the things that I talk about now, which is How did I let myself get to this place? What happened? What are the lessons? How can I help people not have to go through what I went through? What good can come of this experience?” she said, “cause I’m a big believer that everything happens for your good. You just have to find what that is. Sometimes it takes a little longer to figure that out.” Airan’s longtime friend Eliza Fendell said Airan was courageous and fearless throughout the entire process. In fact, she even called all of her friends to explain what was going on and invite them to the trial.“We’d go out to lunch, and she’d run into someone she knew, and they’d ask her how she is, and she’d say, ‘Oh, well, I’m going through this thing, and this is what it is,’” Fendell said. “Just like—boom, right there at a restaurant. It really took my breath away every time I saw it.”Fendell said Airan never put on a brave face or hid what was going on. She always felt that Airan faced what she had done and, in turn, accepted what she had to do.“There were a good 100-plus people at the sentencing hearing, because she invited everyone to come and support her so that we could be a part of the process with her,” Fendell said. “I thought it was so brave. That was the only time she broke was when the judge came down with a sentence. That was it.”Fendell said Airan’s main concern was being taken away from her children. Through Airan’s time in prison, Fendell made it a daily habit to write Airan and update her on the kids and what was going on in the community. “I felt that I knew that I would have wanted to be in the loop about what was happening and who got elected to this, who was appointed to that, and that was an important component also,” Fendell said. “I think that was helpful for when she came back in. When she was released, I remember she texted me, ‘I’m out,’ and then the next day was at a birthday party and it was remarkable. She just fell right back in.”Eventually, when Airan testified in another case, she got early release.  She’s now committed to sharing her message as an ethics speaker, consultant, and trainer. Ethics are a concern across many different industries, and now, Airan said, when she speaks to corporations and law firms, she feels they see her as a good person who made a bad decision. Through this, she hopes, she can help others realize the consequences of their actions—and how a drive to succeed can sometimes cause blind spots that lead to unethical decisions. Coffey said there are so many talented people who are more than smart enough to rationalize like Airan when their ethical and legal choices move into gray zones. Though everyone knows what’s right or wrong, some decisions—particularly those Rashmi had to make—are more complex. “I think what is very important is to find a compass for not just navigating the clear decisions, but navigating through the decisions where temptations are great, the ability to rationalize is ever present, and the ethics and legality can seem more gray than clear cut,” Coffey said.
