James Lowe scores on his debut to tie up an emphatic victory for Ireland in the @autumnnations #C4Rugby #IREvWAL #AutumnNationsCup pic.twitter.com/skt86PK5uj— Channel 4 Sport (@C4Sport) November 13, 2020Ireland had dominated the first half and could have been further than 16-6 ahead – Quinn Roux with their try – but for some spirited scramble defence from the Welsh. This statistic illustrates their efforts: after 36 minutes, Wales had made 96 tackles to Ireland’s 21!The visitors showed more impetus after the break and began to secure turnovers at the breakdown, but couldn’t get significant points on the board. Then their ill-discipline (Wales conceded 18 penalties to Ireland’s 13), coupled with a malfunctioning set-piece, returned and Ireland were able to pull away.Here’s some post-match reaction from social media… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 18 – Wales lost 4/5 lineouts tonight, only once (4 v Italy, Feb 2019) had they lost as many in their previous 64 matches; they also conceded 18 penalties, only once in the last 10 years have they conceded as many (18 v Georgia 2017).

Ulster No 10 Billy Burns then took the field to win his first cap but he was forced off with an injury in the second period. So scrum-half Conor Murray came on in the playmaker role and kicked for goal, slotting two penalties and converting Lowe’s try.Late show: James Lowe scores Ireland’s second try against Wales (Getty Images)Ireland have got their Autumn Nations Cup campaign off to a winning start but are likely to face a sterner test against England at Twickenham next weekend, while Wales will be desperate to arrest the run of six straight defeats when they host Georgia at Parc y Scarlets.

There’s some comradery being built amongst the community through there.”Story said plans for the second location have been in the works for a while.He said the new location will have the industrial, warehouse-style feel of the Magnolia location, but there will be some aesthetic differences such as more natural-looking wood finishes.“We will solidify the way things look between the two [locations] – to familiarize the layout for both,” Story said. “We want to make it so our customers walk in and say, ‘That’s an Avoca set-up.’”Story said the Roaster’s product quality will remain the same.“The consistency of our product should be able to show through in both places,” Story said.Blythe Norman, a West Seventh resident for 11 years, said Avoca’s expansion is welcome.“We desperately need a place for coffee that offers taste and character,” Norman said.But she is worried about parking around Foch Street.“I hope there is enough foot traffic to keep the business viable,” Norman said.Story said the businesses and residential areas surrounding the second location will benefit from the convenience of getting coffee on-foot.In looking at the culture of Magnolia Avenue and West Seventh, both areas differ somewhat, Norman said.Norman said West Seventh offers a “big industry feel” with many established businesses and new development. She said Magnolia has served as a hub for many local businesses and promotes a more independent vibe.“You’ll find a less homogeneous crowd on Magnolia: families, artists, neighbors, musicians and people who don’t mind strolling the street a bit,” Norman said. “I think West Seventh draws a college crowd and a fine dining crowd, according to what is available.”Story said the differing demographics of the two areas are hard to sum up in a few sentences.“We all have an idea of what we want Fort Worth to be,” Story said. “You can’t say they’re polar opposites, but they are very different demographics.

History Center director to step down this summer

first_img TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. – Rod Howe has led The History Center in Tompkins County toward new community partnerships and a grand new location on the Ithaca Commons during more than four years at the organization, and now he is ready to pass the torch. Howe announced Thursday that he will step down from his position as executive director this summer.“I’m very proud of what’s happened over the past four-plus years, and it seems like a good time to step down,” Howe said. “The History Center will be settled in a new place, so we’re ready for a new person to come on board and take full advantage of the new location and the partnerships that are possible in the building.”Howe spearheaded the creation of the Tompkins Center for History and Culture at 110 N. Tioga St., where 12 organizations are currently settling into new spaces. At the new center, The History Center will be co-located with groups including the Wharton Studio Museum, Community Arts Partnership, and the Dorothy Cotton Institute, along with a Tompkins Chamber visitors center. The arrangement is designed to foster new collaborations while inviting locals and tourists to explore the area’s culture.Rod Howe thanks volunteers during the “Moving History Forward” event in October 2018.

He emphasized the importance of place, land, architecture, culture and enterprise while launching new programming for local residents and visitors. He worked with Historic Ithaca and the county’s tourism program to support heritage tourism.Related: Rural revitalization highlighted during ‘Authentically Rural Weekend’Howe currently serves as a member of the Town Board in Ithaca and is running unopposed to become town supervisor. He said stepping back from The History Center will allow a moment to catch his breath before diving into the new challenge, if he is elected.The History Center hopes to have a new director on board by August, but Howe said he will continue working part-time through the end of the year to ease the transition and help with special projects.Reflecting on his tenure, he expressed gratitude to all the community members who have supported The History Center and the new Tompkins Center for History and Culture. “I’m in awe of the support. I’m just so grateful for so many folks who have helped with the transition,” he said.Featured image: Rod Howe (provided photo) Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions?

Bankers go online for help in preventing money laundering

first_imgThe British Bankers’ Association (BBA) is introducing an e-learningprogramme for the financial services sector to prevent money laundering. The package is aimed at all levels of staff working in financial services,including banking, legal, insurance and accountancy. As well as information, the programme will provide a facility forself-assessment and will be supported by a formal examination and accreditationprocess. Testing during and after the course records results centrally and givescompanies an audit trail to assess whether they have met their obligation toprovide training in this area. “London is one of the largest financial centres in the world, handlingbillions of pounds worth of transactions every day,” said Ian Mullen,chief executive of the BBA. “Naturally this makes it a target for financial crime and it isessential that every member of staff within all financial institutions isalerted to the possibility of money laundering activities.” The training programme is a joint venture between the BBA and onlinefinancial training provider Absolutely Training and is designed to include alarge proportion of interactive content, explained the company managingdirector Paul Fegan. “This increases an employee’s retention rate and results in moreeffective training. This means that an individual is more likely to be aware oftheir obligations and responsibilities in relation to money launderingprevention and detection.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Struggling economy affects job market

first_imgEven though the job market is challenging, Kevin Monahan, associate director of the Career Center, said he is optimistic for the graduating senior class.“When students say ‘It’s a bad market,’ I say, ‘someone’s getting hired today. Why can’t that be you?’” Monahan said. “There are opportunities out there. You just have to be assertive.”But some students say the effects of the poor economy have hit them hard.Senior Jim Quiniff, an aerospace engineering major, said his field of study isn’t translating well to the job market.“A lot of people [in this field] didn’t get jobs last year,” Quiniff said. “This leads to more competition.“Not a lot of companies are hiring.”Quiniff said he has been looking into the aircraft and space industries and even though he’s been searching for a job since the beginning of the school year, he said he has only had two interviews.Senior Alex Bodewig, a management consulting major, said she also felt the competition for jobs.“I was looking for any job in business,” she said. “Consulting requires lots of travel time, so I’m not sure if I want that.”Bodewig is from El Salvador, which makes her job search more difficult, spanning two different countries.“It takes a long time to find a job listing you’re interested in,” Bodewig said. “It’s also hard when you don’t hear back. The waiting is rough.”She said professors and the Career Center have been urging students to keep applying.“They said the market is rough, but looking up,” Bodewig said. “There have been people getting offers the last couple of weeks. It’s very last-minute.”Bodewig, who has an upcoming interview but no job offers yet, said the economic state is hitting many graduating students hard.“Companies don’t have the money to hire,” she said.The Career Center is helping bring companies to students, at least virtually, Bodewig said. She said video conferencing is helping bring more interviews in because companies don’t have to pay for travel expenses.Monahan said the Career Center works with students in all stages of the job hunt to help them find a job that is right for them.“The Career Center meets students where they are in the process,” Monahan said. “We help with every aspect.”Graduating senior Kate Callahan said she used help from the Career Center to land a job at Nielsen, one of the biggest marketing research companies in the world.Callahan said she received her job offer at the end of fall semester, but that wasn’t the case for many applying for jobs.“In the fall, companies didn’t know where they would be in the spring,” Callahan said. “There was a lot more stress and pressure on students.Callahan said the job market has been noticeably more competitive recently due to the economy.“There are fewer jobs out there,” Callahan said. “There are fewer offers.
