As for the Challenge Cup, that’s fast becoming a French farce. Pau, Agen and La Rochelle are all bottom of their pools, with quite possibly Grenoble the only club who will reach the quarter-finals. That will be an improvement on last season, when not one of the eight French teams in the competition progressed from the pool stage.It had been hoped that the introduction of automatic qualification for the Challenge Cup winners into the following season’s Champions Cup would act as an incentive for the French, but while it has clearly galvanised Grenoble – and to a lesser extent, Montpellier, and their squad of seasoned internationals – it hasn’t had the desired effect elsewhere.Not good enough: Pau, Agen and La Rochelle (pictured) all lie bottom of their poolsThe EPCR should reduce the number of French clubs in the Challenge Cup, omitting the two newly-promoted clubs from ProD2. This season, that’s Pau and Agen, whose only focus is on league survival and are currently 12th and 14th respectively in the league. They care not a jot about a minor European competition when at stake is their place in the highly lucrative Top 14. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Winds of change: Oyonnax comfortably beat the out-of-form Toulouse team There will be few more meaningless matches this season than Saracens trip to Toulouse on Saturday. The Premiership champions have an unassailable lead at the top of Pool One and are therefore assured of a home tie in April’s quarter-final, so there is nothing to play for when they travel to the south of France, except, of course, the proverbial pride.If only Toulouse had shown a smidgen of pride in this season’s Champions Cup then Saturday’s clash could have been the mouthwatering encounter that back in November we all anticipated. Instead the four-times European champions are bottom of the pool with one win from five. So poor have they been that they succumbed to Oyonnax on Saturday; take nothing away from the Oyo Men, it was a performance of admirable spirit given their chaotic few months that have seen the sacking of coach Olivier Azam and then, on Friday, the departure of their marquee summer signing, former All Black scrum-half Piri Weepu.But Toulouse, level on points with Racing 92 at the head of the Top 14 table, just weren’t up for it in cold, snowy Oyonnax. They conceded a try after just 25 seconds and the final score of 32-14 should shame everyone at the club.Problems: Toulouse DoR Fabien Pelous will be glad to put this season in Europe behind himWhat is it about the French and Europe? Every season this happens in the Champions Cup, one of their clubs just goes through the motions. Last season it was Castres (Top 14 champions in 2013) who lost all six matches, the season before that Perpignan won just once, while in the 2011-12 Heineken Cup, Castres and Montpellier managed just two victories between them. With Toulouse shamefully going out of Europe in Round 5 and countless other sides struggling in the Challenge Cup, is it time for them to forfeit their places? TAGS: Highlight Their places should be awarded to two clubs from eastern Europe, where rugby’s roots are growing but still need careful nurturing. But seeing what Russian outfit Enisei-STM have achieved in this season’s Challenge Cup – victories over Brive and Newcastle – the EPCR should give the chance to clubs from Romania and Georgia.Worthy inclusion: Enisei-STM from Siberia have shown more heart than some French sidesAs for the Champions Cup, France’s representation should be reduced to five clubs. They don’t deserve additional places, not when a rich seam of Gallic disdain runs through the history of the competition. Domestic rugby will always take precedence in France and for all but the very biggest and richest Top 14 clubs, European action is an unwanted distraction. Instead an extra English club and ProD2 side should play in the Champions Cup. They might not win it, but they’ll play with more heart than Toulouse have shown this season.
Josh Matavesi’s ready smile belies the loss of his mother as a teen, writes Ali Stokes. This feature first appeared in Rugby world magazine in September.

Hard yards: Josh Matavesi carries the ball for Newcastle Falcons against Northampton LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Josh Matavesi is driven by family tragedyDuring his time with both the Ospreys and Newcastle Falcons, Josh Matavesi has become a household name in the UK. While many will be well acquainted with his playing skills – his sumptuous passes and fizzing footwork were on show at Twickenham during the Barbarians’ 63-45 thrashing of England in May – few will be aware of the family tragedy that fuelled his drive to become a professional athlete.When he was just 13 years old, Matavesi lost his mother to suicide, the Cornish-Fijian discovering his mother’s note on the kitchen table in the early hours of the day of her death.“It was surreal,” he says. “I found the note and thought, ‘Nah, this isn’t real.’ Then my dad came downstairs. He read it and said, ‘I need a cold shower to make sure I’m reading it right.’ Three minutes later he comes down and reads it again.“I was just thinking, ‘What do I do?’ My brother (Joel, aged seven at the time) was still sleeping so we had to call our nan. She lived a couple of streets up, so my dad called her number. Luckily my mum’s brother, Kevin, was awake and he broke it to her. Five minutes later she’s running down the road and the police are outside our house.“It was like something from the movies, it didn’t feel real. The police lady had to come to tell us they had found the body and that it was our mum. It’s just one of those things where I could always see myself, it never felt like I was looking out of my eyes.”National honours: Josh Matavesi in action for Fiji against Wales in 2014Like an out-of-body experience? “Yeah, I was thinking, this isn’t real, this isn’t us. But obviously it did happen.”Matavesi spoke at his mother’s funeral and then the now family of four – dad Sireli and sons Josh, Sam and Joel – had to adjust to new challenges. There was a different family dynamic, Josh helping to raise his younger brothers while his father went out to work long 13-hour days repairing West Country roads.“When my dad used to work on the roads he’d be out of the door at 6.15am because he had to give a lift to the rest of the crew. So that was our wake-up call. We would get changed and sort breakfast. My brother (Joel) was in primary school so I had to make sure he got there, then walk to my school, which was a big walk. My dad would be back in for about 7pm, so dinner would have to be done by us, or there would be money to buy something.The Matavesis: a family portrait“We had a tab at the fish and chip shop. We used to think we were really cool when we were younger. We’d ask our friends if they wanted fish and chips, so we’d be asking for about seven portions. My dad would get there and the bill would be about £60. We would just tell him, ‘Oh, we were hungry…’”Matavesi says the loss of his mother at such a young age made him more determined to achieve his goals. He’s gone on to play more than 75 times for the Ospreys, help Newcastle to reach the Premiership play-offs for the first time and represent Fiji in 17 Tests. Yet, as is to be expected after such a tragedy, it took time to find that determination. Related: RFU insist player welfare is top of the agenda“When I was younger I was bitter with other people,” he recalls. “I would see other kids hugging their mums and stuff and I was like, ‘Come on man, I haven’t got one’. Then obviously Dad couldn’t be at three games at once, so he would have to pick and choose who he would watch. I had to work to get money to go on a rugby tour, little things like that.“I probably wouldn’t change it because it made me who I am today. When my mum passed away, it was a real driving factor. It really focused me on what I wanted to do with my life and how I wanted to get it. Without that adversity, I don’t think you’d get that focus from me. Obviously you never get over it but I wouldn’t be where I am today without that happening.”There has been more adversity since his mother’s suicide too. His father, who settled in Cornwall in the Eighties after touring the UK with the Fiji Barbarians and worked in the local tin mines at first, is now in a wheelchair after a life-saving operation left him paralysed from the waist down four years ago.“He had diabetes and was really prone to infections,” says Matavesi, explaining events leading up to the surgery. “He got back from work one day and just dropped on the bath while in the shower. Luckily my little brother, Joel, was home. Joel and my uncle took him to the local doctors and he said his neck was really sore. They got him a scan and they found out he had a cyst on his spine. With a cyst, you have to cut it. You can’t let cysts keep going. If we had, his spinal cord would go.“He can’t walk but I think he appreciates just breathing and being able to talk. His upper body is still strong, so he gets to hold the grandkids and come to our games.Huge result: After beating England with the Barbarians“So we’ve had a bit of bad luck with the parents. It’s those things that shape you as a person, it makes you. Everyone is going through something, that’s why we (the brothers) smile everywhere. There is no point in crying about it.”In recent times sports stars have opened up more conversations about mental health and going forward 27-year-old Matavesi wants to use his own experiences to help others who have lost a loved one to suicide.“Something I want to do in the future is help kids who’ve had parents, friends or family commit suicide, to help them cope with it. I’d love to get involved in that, so they can see I’m a kid from Camborne who made a good go of doing something. That’s me, that’s the person I am. I want to help young kids and help them see a normal kid can do something good.“It definitely has an effect on the way I raise my kids as well. I’m lucky, I have two kids, healthy young girls. I know how I parent them has a big effect.I take every day as it comes and that’s why I can’t stop smiling!”

Photo: Richard Schori[Episcopal Diocese of West Texas] The Rt. Rev. David M. Reed was installed as bishop coadjutor of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas during a Eucharist service held Feb. 28 at the 111th annual Diocesan Council. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori presided over the service and the installation.There is no specific liturgy in the Episcopal Church for a previously ordained bishop to be installed as bishop coadjutor. Hence, Reed compiled the liturgy for the installation after he visited high-school-age students at Camp Capers, a diocesan camping and retreat center, in January. During the visit, he asked the teenagers three questions: How can I support you in your life in Christ? What kind of bishop do you and your church need me to be? How can you help me be a better bishop?Reed molded their answers into the Collect for the Day, prayers for the installation and the Prayers of the People.The Rt. Rev. David Reed kneels says a prayer as he kneels before Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori during his installation service as bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of West Texas. Photo: Richard SchoriAs he knelt before Jefferts Schori, Reed prayed, “O Lord my God, I am a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming; yet you have called me to serve as bishop and shepherd.” The prayer continued, and the entire service can be read here.Guest preacher Bishop John McKee “Kee” Sloan of the Diocese of Alabama opened his sermon with a quote from Reed’s prayer. The annual theme of the Diocese of West Texas is “Called to Serve,” and this theme was introduced during Diocesan Council, and it resonated in all the events and ministry reports.Entertaining the 1,000-plus-member congregation with stories of his youth, Sloan said God knows Reed better than anyone else, and he has called him because of who he is. “David Reed is such a genuinely humble, nice, gentle, sincere, authentic man,” Sloan said, to applause from the congregation.Sloan said that God calls everyone to preach the Gospel, to strive for justice and peace, and to respect the dignity of every human being. “God knows us and sees us, knows our faults and our shortcomings, and yet he calls us to ministry, he calls us to serve,” said Sloan. (His sermon is available in audio format here.)The host church for Diocesan Council was St. John’s, New Braunfels, which assembled a 100-member choir that included singers from around the diocese and young boys of the Chapel Boychoir from San Antonio.A diocesan youth band was also formed, and the musicians and 20-plus youth singers led the congregation in three contemporary songs during the Eucharist. Reed invited the youth musicians to serve in this capacity to ensure their lively joy and energy would be part of Council and the installation service.“Today marks a transition – and the beginning of a transition – in the life of our diocese, in which continuity and change are interwoven, a familiar territory for Christians,” said Reed. “Continuity and change, remembrance and hope, dying and rising, gathering together and being sent out, leaving home and finding home – this is how we travel together on the Way of Christ.”Reed was elected in October 2014, and he is the first bishop suffragan of the diocese elected bishop coadjutor. Reed will continue to serve alongside Diocesan Bishop Gary Lillibridge until Lillibridge’s retirement in 2017.— Laura Shaver is communications officer for the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas.

The decision to build a home, the idea of creating one’s own domestic experience in ways that are different from those of living in collective accommodations or in urban settings, generates a set of aspirations, suggestions, needs. Our task is to translate these instances into a project that, at least in part, would summarize them. The aspiration and the goal is to improve our daily lives, increasing comfort and the quality of space.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe most difficult part of the process is when, as in this case, the place is a lot of alienating land surrounded by buildings that are simply ugly, that are neither part of the tradition nor of a thought-through present. It is impossible, therefore, to find interesting relationships with a context devoid of identity, on which to build an idea.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe risk one can run is to think of a self-referential object that finds its reason of being in the beautiful sign, without answering to those instances of quality of life that underlie the very choice of building a house. Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgFrom these reflections, a project has been developed, a project that finds within itself a reconstructed nature, with which one can establish those relationships denied by a disarming urban context. A choice of self-sufficiency, which has its roots in the Roman house and that puts will at the center of the project, along with research, the need for quality of life in connection with an idea of nature.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe result is a dilated project that widens in order to internally generate the voids that are to be invented to replace an absent place.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgOur choice is to provide the roof of the building with functions that are normally placed on the ground. So, the roof is seen as a garden, with relational spaces organized in separate areas: one devoted to the swimming pool and the sunroof, and one devoted to food and conviviality. Among these areas in the central atrium, there is the place for a strawberry tree whose foliage dominates the void at the center of the project.Save this picture!Section 2The attics of the high sections completely hide the renewable energy production plants. Each space, thus, is occupied by a sequence which, from the entrance, follows a vertical path. The entire tale is designed to slowly discover the mechanics of the spaces that follow the alternation of external and internal. What can be distinguished from the outside can only be fully comprehended by following the light that, by entering, reveals the empty spaces, in a crescendo that culminates with the light coming from the corten lantern in the front facade.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe spatial succession of the Roman house is vertically translated, in an organism that, as in the tradition, places the impluvium at the center of the composition. The kitchen and the living room overlook a garden built inside the building itself, with maples, convallaria and a stream of running water, a real natural enclosure, a precious garden, the setting of contemporary daily lives.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe materials describe the gaps that the project generates. In this way, wood, stone, corten, water and vegetation give voice to the need to relate to spaces designed as an extension of the house itself. The main structure, in masonry and concrete, delineates the volumes, while steel builds the gaps and crowns the construction, measuring and uniting the composition. All the floors and wall coverings, both interior and exterior, are in natural stone, with the exception of the wood chosen for the flooring of the terraces and of the sunroof.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe technical and technological contents of the building, which reaches energy class A +, are geared towards sustainable choices.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgProject gallerySee allShow lessEuralille 2 / Brenac & Gonzalez & AssociésSelected ProjectsStorefront Presents “MEASURE”Event Share “COPY” Area: 463 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House B / Unostudio Architetti associati Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamg+ 42 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/771007/house-b-unostudio-architetti-associati Clipboard Architects: Unostudio Architetti associati Area Area of this architecture project Projects Year: CopyHouses•Mantua, Italy Photographs: Gianni Basso / vegamg Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project House B / Unostudio Architetti associatiSave this projectSaveHouse B / Unostudio Architetti associati ArchDaily Houses Photographs CopyAbout this officeUnostudio Architetti associatiOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMantuaItalyPublished on August 01, 2015Cite: “House B / Unostudio Architetti associati” 31 Jul 2015.

New research from charity Sue Ryder has found that 28 per cent of British adults would leap at the chance of sneaking around a stately home at the dead of night. To satisfy this curiosity, and to help people see fundraising in a whole new light, Sue Ryder has teamed up with some of the UK’s most iconic landmarks to host a series of sponsored Starlight Hikes – night-time walks with a difference, throughout September.Through the Starlight Hike events, the charity aims to recruit 10,000 walkers, and raise £1 million to help Sue Ryder continue to provide long-term, compassionate and end-of-life care to people across the UK. The Hikes will take place, during the dead of night at well-known venues such as Glamis Castle, famed for being the childhood home of the Queen Mother, and the setting for Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Other Starlight Hike venues include; Haworth village, home of the Bronte sisters, The Shuttleworth collection, a unique collection of Edwardian flying machines and Sledmere House, a Yorkshire stately home.According to Sue Ryder’s findings, a third of Brits (34 per cent) would love to snoop around a castle at night time and almost one in two people (46 per cent) who live close to a stately home, yet have not visited it for years would jump at the chance to see it under a new light.Jason Suckley, director of fundraising and marketing at Sue Ryder, said: “Our findings show that it is all too easy to take things for granted when they are part of your day-to-day life – whether that be your health or the landmark down the road. We know that only 8 per cent of people took part in a fundraising event for a health charity last year, so we have made sure our fundraising activities are new, exciting and give people an opportunity to see some of the UKs best known local landmarks – as well as fundraising – in a whole new light.“Through the Starlight Hikes we aim to raise £1 million, this would be enough to run 16 bed hospice for six months and enable us to provide 50,000 hours of in-patient care for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Huntingdon’s disease, motor neurone disease and brain injury. We want to encourage as many people as possible to go to our website and sign up for a chance to see a local landmark in a whole new light, whilst doing something special for charity.”The Sue Ryder Starlight Hikes will take place in eleven beautiful locations across the UK; Aberdeen, Bedford, Cheltenham, Clitheroe, Dundee, Driffield, Haworth, Ipswich, Leeds, Peterborough and Reading.For more information about Starlight Hike, or to sign up to a Starlight Hike event, please seewww.starlighthike.org Howard Lake | 16 May 2012 | News Charity night hikes show loved landmarks in new light About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Belchim’s New TOUGH 5EC® ‘Tough’ on Indiana Weeds By Eric Pfeiffer – Jun 1, 2021 Belchim is relatively new to the United States but is a company with a long history in crop protection. The Belgian-based company has been in business for 34 years and in the US since 2018.This year, Belchim has launched a new corn herbicide called TOUGH 5EC®. Belchim General Manager Tom Wood says, “It’s a broadleaf herbicide and it goes quite well into the current integrated weed management programs used in corn…So, what we’re seeing is when you add TOUGH 5EC® to your tank, we’ve seen anywhere from 5%-30% improvement in control and it really performs well when resistant weeds are present.”Wood explains how TOUGH 5EC® works.“The AI associated with TOUGH 5EC® is pyridate. It’s not a new chemistry, but it’s a chemistry whose time has come, and it works. We say it synergizes with HPPDs and synergizes on a scientific level. So, the pyridate essentially increases free radicals that disrupt cell membranes that kill plants, and the HPPDs reduces the ability of the plant to defend itself against free radicals. So, it’s a nice one-two punch and there’s the synergy.”Wood says pairing TOUGH 5EC® with atrazine gives it an effective and speedy killing capability of tough broadleaf weeds like waterhemp and Palmer Amaranth.“TOUGH 5EC® is a foliar application that absorbs very fast into the leaves. Atrazine, while also being foliar, works mostly through the roots and slower. So, you get a nice combination with atrazine also, essentially increasing your speed to kill.
