Edinburgh v Glasgow live stream: How to watch from anywhereResults last weekend have taken the sting out of this Scottish derby rematch at Murrayfield. Edinburgh’s 30-15 fightback victory, coupled with Munster’s defeat to Leinster, means Richard Cockerill’s men have booked a home Guinness Pro14 semi-final against Ulster a week tomorrow. That’s because Munster can only match Edinburgh’s points tally in Conference B but in that eventuality would lose out on matches won.Edinburgh also claimed possession of the 1872 Cup for the third successive season. So their priority tonight – reflected in a much-changed line-up – is to avoid injuries and so be able to go into a crucial training week fully tooled. They have never won the Pro14 title in its various guises, a runners-up spot in 2009 their best performance.“All our guys are pretty much fit to play, but there are some people who are more important for the semi-final,” said head coach Cockerill, who has signed a two-year contract extension to 2023. “The reality is we want to win (tonight) and will be playing to do so, but we have qualified and we’ve managed to retain the 1872 Cup, so we have other things to prioritise.“I need to keep my ego in my pocket and worry about what’s more important, which is Ulster at home in a semi and giving ourselves the best chance of getting to a final.”Bragging rights: Edinburgh’s Stuart McInally with the 1872 Cup after last weekend’s derby win (Inpho)Edinburgh make ten changes to their starting XV, but Hamish Watson – outstanding last week – goes again from the off and there are also starts for Scotland internationals Darcy Graham and Magnus Bradbury after injury.Summer signing Nathan Chamberlain, 20, makes his first start for the club at stand-off and is partnered at half-back by Charlie Shiel, 22, a try-scorer last Saturday.Outside-centre James Johnstone makes his 50th Edinburgh appearance while Marshall Sykes, Roan Frostwick and Matt Gordon are in line for their competitive club debuts off the bench.Glasgow, champions in 2015 and finalists last year, will be determined to end their season on a high note. Their 50% win record in Conference A falls well below their recent standards and they will be smarting from the way they lost their grip last Saturday having led at half-time. They fell foul of the new breakdown and tackle directives, conceding nearly 20 penalties all told, so that is an area in which new head coach Danny Wilson will be seeking improvement.In contrast to Cockerill, Wilson has kept changes to a minimum. George Horne replaces fellow Scotland scrum-half Ali Price while Stafford McDowall comes in at 12 for Pete Horne.In the pack, Glasgow were forced into a late change as lock Richie Gray dropped out for protocol reasons as a close family member was awaiting a test result for Covid. Rob Harley, originally a replacement, comes into the engine room with Kiran McDonald joining the bench. Tom Gordon lines up at seven in a rejigged back row.Getting his chance: Stafford McDowall starts for Glasgow (Inpho)Hooker and captain Fraser Brown makes his 100th Glasgow appearance while props Charlie Capps and summer arrival Enrique Pieretto are named in a Glasgow match-day 23 for the first time.Wilson said: “We wanted to give an opportunity to a few boys who we think deserve their shot based on their efforts in training over the last couple of weeks.“We’ve got one eye on the start of the new season and know that squad depth is going to be tested more than ever, so it’s another chance to look at certain players and combinations.“We’re excited to see how Stafford goes in the centre – he’s a young man with a highly impressive skill-set, and he’s a major asset to our squad. Tom and George both come into the starting XV and they’re keen to get going from the first whistle this week.”The match is due to make history as the first pro rugby match in the UK, and the first pro sports event in Scotland, to welcome spectators since the lockdown began in March. It’s expected that about 700 fans will be admitted to Murrayfield – little more than 1% of capacity – as the Scottish government is using the match as a trial before deciding whether to partially open stadiums from 14 September.

In an attractive location close to the sea, which is determined by steep topography made up of retaining walls, terraces and staircases an existing unsuitable house was replaced by a new one. In keeping with a long tradition of Mediterranean transformation and cultivation of nature and overcoming of”doc” (the local term for a depression: a smaller arable land area), stone wall sand altitude differences were used as the basis for laying new topographic layers in horizontal and vertical direction. Horizontal, gently undulating roof plate follows the internal structure of the building and also defines the body of the house which is incorporated into the landscape by its geometry. The simple and geometric forms of the house with their materials and white stone facades are in accordance but also in contrast to the drywall.Save this picture!© Marko ErcegovicThe basic concept of the design of the living environment was to create a house that is at the same time open to nature but also sufficiently protected against the climate. The wonderful and high quality view seen from the plot is maximally utilized with large glass windows on the facades.Save this picture!© Marko ErcegovicThe house is developed in several levels because of the slope of the plot – the entrance is on the top floor, parking area is next to the street, and other activities are organized in split-levels: three bedrooms with bathrooms, parents’ bedroom with a dressing room and a bathroom, staircase, spacious living room, dining area, kitchen, service space, storage and toilet, TV lounge with a projector screen and space for children to play. Living and dining room have a direct connection with the outside spaces -partially covered terrace with an outdoor pool. The environment is also designed in several levels-terraces that are connected by stairs and go down to the sea.Save this picture!© Marko ErcegovicThe facade and the roof are clad in white stone plates; large glass windows are partially recessed into the volume and open the house to wards the sea but at the same time ensure a pleasant shade in the interior.

As such it is not always taken into account by fundraising prospect researchers.The information is contained in the first of a series of reports it is producing looking at hidden wealth in the UK.Using data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, the report features “never before seen data on holdings across the whole of the UK.”Giving Insight’s Matt Ide hopes that the data will show that “there’s more to wealth estimation than salaries, property and shares”. Given that 23 million people in the UK own Premium Bonds, this could be a big gap.For example, the report shows the wealth invested in Premium Bonds in Essex: the total Premium Bonds held amount to around £1.7 billion. In addition, nearly 21,000 people in the county hold the £30,000 maximum permitted investment.In the report, Ide explains why outdated restrictions are preventing charities from accessing this wealth directly.Top five areas of maximum Premium Bond holdingsAccording to the report, the five areas with the largest number of inhabitants holding the maximum £30,000 in Premium Bonds are:• Outer London (46,808)• Essex (20,967)• Hampshire (21,160)• Surrey (20,282)• Kent (19,181)Areas by average holding per accountWhen the average holding per account is examined though the top areas are quite different, apart from Outer London:• Surrey (£2,891)• West Sussex (£2,772)• Dorset (£2,736)• Buckinghamshire (£2,570)• East Sussex (£2,544) Advertisement £43 billion of UK wealth hidden in Premium Bonds, says Giving Insight Premium Bonds and fundraisingIde notes that Premium Bonds don’t feature in charity fundraising appeals. This is probably because they are not transferable, and charities are not allowed to buy or hold Premium Bonds. But he encourages fundraisers to remember that there are other sources of wealth, not just those seen in published rich lists.He also suggests that the charity sector might like to investigate whether Premium Bonds might be made easier to donate to charity.The report (PDF) can be downloaded at no charge.www.givinginsight.org Tagged with: Finance Individual giving Prospect research Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Judy Chu (CA-27) was praised by President Barack Obama as he declared more than 346,000 acres of national forest land there the nationâ€™s newest national monument this morning. Rep. Chu, whose district includes much of the new monument and who has led the Congressional effort for more protections, attended the announcement and released the following statement:â€œThis is a truly great day. Every day, I and millions of others in the Los Angeles area look to these mountains. They are a majestic backdrop and comprise 70 percent of the open space for the area. Naturally, their beauty and proximity attract families and individuals in search of fresh air or recreation on our vast trails alongside flowing rivers. But how to do so sustainably has been an active challenge for years. Now, after more than a decade of work, national monument designation will finally provide more means to protect our beautiful but under-resourced San Gabriel Mountains. Standing next to President Obama as this historic declaration was signed, I felt the culmination of all these efforts and the realization of new opportunities for the San Gabriels.â€œFollowing the proud example of 16 presidents before him â€“ dating back to Teddy Roosevelt â€“ President Obama has used the Antiquities Act to guarantee continued access to our nationâ€™s rich natural areas while upholding existing water rights, fire prevention, and land usage for generations. Soon, the break from the bustle and crowding of city life afforded by the San Gabriels will be available to our underserved populations, connecting new visitors to this treasure. And when they arrive, they will no longer be greeted by graffiti or garbage. Already, there has been an incredible response from the community to join in the effort and we are seeing public-private partnerships springing up to contribute to the conservation and upkeep.â€The effort to protect the San Gabriel Mountains started eleven and a half years ago with the introduction of a bill by then-Representative Hilda Solis. The result was a 10-year study by the National Park Service, which included 66 stakeholder meetings, and 16,800 public comments, most overwhelmingly in support of more resources for the San Gabriel Mountains and Rivers. After the release of the study, Representative Judy Chu spent one and a half years drafting a bill on the San Gabriel Mountains and Rivers, conducting over 40 stakeholder meetings, earning the support of the San Gabriel Council of Governments and the San Gabriel Valley Water Association.The Antiquities Act of 1906 gives the President the authority to declare a national monument on federal lands, if they are historic landmarks, historic and prehistoric structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest. A fact sheet from the White House, including the borders of the monument, can be found here. Top of the News Business News Government Rep.

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Jeff and Jerri Hatfield have owned their own businesses since 1984 and have owned and operated Core Contractors, Inc. since 1999. As business owners, this nomination recognizes their commitment and support for members of the military.ESGR’s awards program culminates with the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their outstanding support of employees serving in the Guard and Reserve. Each year, Guard and Reserve employees, or a family member acting on their behalf, have the opportunity to nominate their employer for the EmployerSupport Freedom Award. The ESGR State Committees review nominations and submit recommendations to advance to the next round in each of the three categories: small employer, large employer, and public sector. A national selection board comprised of senior Department of Defense officials, business leaders, and prior awardees select up to 15 employers to receive the Secretary’s prestigious award.Since the Freedom Award was instituted in 1996, 220 employers have been honored at annual ceremonies in Washington, DC. The ceremony is currently held at the Pentagon, with the awards being presented by either the Secretary of Defense or Deputy Secretary of Defense. As part of the annual recognition, the President also signs a proclamation for “National Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week,” highlighting the sacrifices of our Guard and Reserve members and their families, and the outstanding support they receive from employers. Jeff Hatfield and Core Contractors were nominated for the United States Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. In a ceremony held on June 29, 2018, Jeff Hatfield and Core Contractors were recognized with honors for their exemplary support of National Guard and Reserve Member Employees.
The organising committee of the London 2012 Olympics is keen to source products from small- and medium-sized bakery companies as it gears up for the 17-day event next year.Food buyers from the London Organising Committee (LOCOG) will attend an event on 3 February, organised by consultant Prevista, where it will brief food companies, including bakeries, about what they are looking for from potential suppliers. The LOCOG sourcing team will also be at IFE in March.In particular, the team will be looking to source local and regional produce from the UK, including bakery products. Jan Matthews, head of catering, said: “Although the 2012 Games are primarily based in London, we are dedicated to showcasing the finest food from around Britain while also ensuring that we offer a wide range of international cuisine. London 2012 will be the largest peace-time catering operation in the world, so the Meet the Buyer events really will provide a mammoth opportunity for exhibitors to get involved.”A similar event at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair in London in September gave biscotti producer Nisi’s the opportunity to pitch its products to LOCOG buyers, with coffee concessions and VIP lounges at the games a key target market.“If we are successful with LOCOG, it would be a really good endorsement. I estimate it would mean making an extra 200,000 biscotti,” said MD Denise Stevenson.There will be 31 competition venues at London 2012 with a workforce of 160,000, 23,900 athletes and team officials, 20,600 members of the press and 4,800 Olympic and Paralympic family members due to attend. It is estimated that the Olympic Village alone will consume 25,000 loaves of bread during the eventThe major catering contracts for the games are due to be announced next week with LOCOG then advising contractors on which products it would like them to stock. SME suppliers are required to have accreditation such as SALSA, Red Tractor or BRC.
