France wants fewer foreigners, and that can only be a boost for Les Bleus

first_imgWith the election of Bernard Laporte as FFR President, a new firmer stance on the selection criteria to play for Les Bleus has been implemented LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Kingmaker: Bernard Laporte is now in the position to make big changes at the FFRNoves explained to Midi Olympique that the new approach won’t apply to those foreigners already selected for France, four of whom played for Les Bleus in the recent autumn internationals: Atonio, Fijian-born wings Noa Nakaitaci and Virimi Vakatawa and Spedding.In any case Spedding and Vakatawa have become French citizens, while Nakaitaci has applied and is currently waiting for the paperwork to go through. The tightening of the rules is likely to have the desired effect, although it won’t necessarily prevent foreign players winning a France cap in the future. To apply for French citizenship one needs to have lived in France for five continuous years and demonstrated a competency in the language and a knowledge of the culture. Change in tack: Bernard Laporte has said only French passport holders can play for France An era has ended in France. In an interview with Midi Olympique on Monday, national coach Guy Noves discussed his recent lunch with Serge Simon, the number two to new FFR president Bernard Laporte. By all accounts the pair discussed much over the dinner table, and one of the major issues that will have far-reaching ramifications was explained by Noves to Midi Olympique. “From now on players who are not French nationals can no longer play for France. It’s that simple. One will have to be in possession of a French passport to be considered for selection.”Noves’ pronouncement should come as no surprise. One of Laporte’s major campaign issues during his 18 months of electioneering was a promise to cull the number of foreigners in the French game, not just in the two professional leagues but also in the national squad. Laporte conveyed the message in person to Bill Beaumont, president of World Rugby, when the two met in Paris on Tuesday. Describing it as a “political decision”, Laporte added: “One must not impoverish the Fijians, Georgians, Samoans and Tongans otherwise we impoverish the standard of international rugby.”In agreement: The new diktat is said to have the backing of Guy NovesThis might seem rather hypocritical coming from Laporte, a man who coached Toulon to three consecutive European titles, with a team that, for the last of those three wins, in the 2015 Champions Cup final, contained just four Frenchman. And of course it was Laporte who pioneered picking foreigners in the France XV during his eight years in charge, selecting for example in the early 2000s, the likes of New Zealander Tony Marsh and the South African trio of Brian Brian Liebenberg, Steven Hall and Pieter de Villiers.But now he’s the most powerful man in France rugby Laporte has the right to change his stance and adopt a ‘Do as I say, not as I did’ philosophy, and that is likely to please the majority of French rugby fans. No one is questioning the commitment of players like Scott Spedding – France’s outstanding performer in the 2016 Six Nations – or Kiwi prop Uini Atonio but the French would prefer their own countrymen to be wearing the blue jersey. It still rankles with many that de Villiers, having been developed by the French into a fine Test match prop, took his knowledge and expertise back to South Africa upon retirement and for the last five years has been the Springboks scrum coach. How’s that for gratitude? TAGS: Highlight Naturalised: South African born Scott Spedding has become a French passport holderIn recent weeks the French press have cited Montpellier’s South African lock Paul Willemse and Stade Francais’s Australian lock Hugh Pyle as two players who would have been eligible to play for France next summer before Laporte was elected president. But now the World Rugby three year residency rule is not enough and the pair – who arrived in France in 2014 – will have to wait a further two years to acquire French citizenship before they can be considered for selection.Five years is what many in rugby, including World Rugby vice-chairman Agustín Pichot, would like the residency rule to be. Three years is too short and doesn’t require much commitment from the players. Five years is about right, and now in the case of the French comes with citizenship and a much deeper commitment to their adopted country.last_img read more

A Healthy Breakfast Equals a Healthier You!

first_imgFocus on Your HealthFrom Florida Hospital Apopka Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here We’ve all heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast simply means the first meal of the day. Some common excuses for not eating in the morning are: “I don’t have time”, “I’m not hungry”, and “I will gain weight”. However, a healthy breakfast can help set you up to have a better day. Here are some quick tips to have a healthy and easy breakfast!– Breakfast doesn’t have to be a full course meal it can be simple like a piece of whole wheat bread or 100% juice. Keep in mind that your morning coffee doesn’t constitute a meal. In fact, it may simply be adding empty calories that actually inhibit your appetite preventing you from eating nourishing foods.– Examination of your eating behavior the night before may be needed. Did you snack on food until bedtime? Try eating a quick meal mid-morning consisting of bread or juice with a hard-boiled egg or a low-fat cheese stick.– Skipping meals can lead to overeating later in the day. Instead, incorporate foods low in fat and calories to your morning routine providing you with energy while maintaining your weight.Additionally, you don’t have to stick with traditional breakfast foods. Be creative! Try eating leftovers from the night before or any food you like. The idea is to break your fast and give your body the energy it needs to accomplish your daily goals. So before embarking onto your destinations of the day open the refrigerator or pantry and take a look.Experience has taught us that a lack of nutrients can lead to a decrease of energy. The decrease in energy can lead to a decrease of physical activity. A decrease in physical activity has the potential to lead to weight gain and a further decrease in energy. This vicious cycle of weight gain increases the risk of developing musculoskeletal conditions. A recent Australian study investigating the association between body composition and low back pain concluded that individuals with a higher body mass index were more likely to have higher levels of low back pain intensity and disability.One small step in breaking this cycle is breakfast. A healthy breakfast leads to a healthier you.

Kānaka Maoli block construction of Thirty Meter Telescope on sacred Mauna Kea

first_imgWhen work crews arrived to begin construction of the long-opposed $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope on the sacred Mauna Kea mountain on July 17, Kānaka Maoli (Hawai’ian) elders who use wheelchairs, walkers or canes demanded to be taken to the front line to be arrested. The elders were there to oppose further damage to and desecration of Mauna Kea, which already has had 13 smaller telescopes constructed on it since 1960.Since the arrests of 35 people on July 17, thousands of Hawai’ians and supporters have blocked all access to the mountain.The TMT Corporation and the University of Hawai’i Board of Regents want to build a huge, 18-story telescope and facilities covering about six football fields on allegedly “ceded” crown lands. Queen Liliuokalani of Hawai’i was overthrown in 1893 by a cabal of sugar planters and settler businessmen. Two years later, the U.S. annexed Hawai’i as a territory, and it became the 50th state in 1959. Mauna Kea is not just unique for its rare Hawai’ian plants and animals; it  also has deep significance to the Hawai’ian Nation. The site was honored in a January 2011 National Geographic special edition, “The Earth’s Holiest Places: Sacred Journeys.” The state Board of Land and Natural Resources originally blocked construction of the TMT in February 2011. ( the arrests of the elders, Hawai’i Gov. David Ige signed an emergency proclamation threatening Mauna Protectors with police and National Guard troops. ( More than 2,000 people then turned out to surround the base of the mountain in response to the arrests and the governor’s threats.Kealoha Pisciotta told the Associated Press, “They’re taking our kupuna” (elders), as the crowd sang “Hawai’i Aloha.” (July 18) The blockade immediately forced a work stoppage of on-site astronomers and researchers.Gov. Ige again attacked the Protectors at a July 19 press conference, alleging illegal activity, but local media reported the opposite. Heidi Tsuneyoshi of the Honolulu City Council said, “There are absolutely no signs of drugs or alcohol. No one is even allowed to smoke here.” (KHON2 news, July 20) Volunteers are feeding thousands of protectors daily meals and snacks from free kitchens, running medical tents, recycling, cleaning porta potties and hauling trash. KHON2 reported that the resolve of the Ku Kia’i Mauna, the guardians of the mountain, was growing stronger every day. Volunteers told KHON2 that anyone who comes into the Pu’uhonua is welcome. Pu’uhonua means “place of refuge of Hōnaunau,” ancestral home of the Kamehameha dynasty. The Hōnaunau regards itself as sovereign under international law, a successor government to the independent Kingdom of Hawai’i, not subject to U.S. law. TMT opponents marched in Waikiki July 20, blocking traffic along Kalakaua Avenue as people made their way to Kapiolani Park. (Honolulu Star Advertiser, July 20) Demonstrations have also taken place from New York City to Alaska.More than 100 TMT-affiliated astronomers and more than 700 others have signed a letter against forcing the project on the Hawai’ian people. The letter also raises concerns about sovereignty and intrusions on Indigenous lands. It cites past environmental racism and white colonizers’ obsessions with conquest: “These histories progressed in lock-step with the development of Western ‘sciences’ of personhood: of who and/or what is human, and therefore who must be subhuman, and thus must be subject to control via mechanisms of policing, incarceration and military violence.” ( of New Hampshire astrophysicist Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, who signed the letter, stated, “What facilitated [scientific] access [to Mauna Kea] is American colonialism on kānaka ‘ōiwi (Native Hawai’ian) land in what we call the state of Hawai’i. It is the American state apparatus that continues to play a role in enforcing astronomer access to the Mauna, for example, with the police forces this week arresting the kūpuna, the elders, who took great physical risk to protect their family.” (, July 18)The TMT has been falsely portrayed as science vs. Native Hawai’ians, but it is a for-profit project. The telescope’s investors have an alternate site selected in the Canary Islands. The Earther website paraphrased an email from Aurora Kagawa-Viviani, a Native Hawai’ian Ph.D. candidate at the Mānoa’s Department of Geography and Environment at the University of Hawai’i: “This isn’t a moment for scientists to stay silent. … That would make scientists complicit in oppressing Indigenous worldviews.” (July 18)Support the Kia‘i; donate to the Hawai’i Community Bail Fund at All donations will be used exclusively to bail out protectors of the mauna.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A Near Perfect Crop Year for Jasper County Farmer

first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News A Near Perfect Crop Year for Jasper County Farmer Kingma July 4 updateA 4th of July check on crop progress in northwest Indiana has brought some good news from Mark Kingma. He farms in Jasper County and says the crops are looking very good following a spring that allowed him to get planted just about on time. The corn and soybeans have benefited from some good rains recently.“It’s very scattered but eventually it’s all getting hit by rain. On our river ground we’re actually pumping water off of the fields from rain they’ve had upstream from us. From Valpo to South Bend they had quite a bit of rain last week and the river is still above flood stage, so we’re pumping water off there. But otherwise we cannot complain. Probably 98-99 percent of our crops really look good right now. We’ve been pretty blessed right here.”Kingma irrigates his fields and last year they couldn’t keep up with the fields’ demands. This year it’s a total turnaround.“They sure have not even started,” he said. “We’ve moved them out of the way a little bit, but that is it. We have not run an irrigator. I have one neighbor that was running one a little bit on some ground where he only got a couple of tenths of an inch of rain over the last few weeks. But it’s an isolated area. Most everything else has probably had 2 inches over the last 2 weeks. Just really nice rains.”He tells HAT there are some fields as close as 10 miles away that have had just too much rain. How close is pollination time?“I would say about a week and we’re going to see the first of our tassels. The first field we planted two days ago I pulled a center out and it’s about 4 leafs so I suspect another 8 or 10 days and we’ll have some tassels going.”Asked if he had pest issues Kingma said not yet.
