Con: Kelly Haimona. Pen: Edoardo PadovaniReferee: Angus Gardner (Australia) STATISTICS58 – Ireland had 58% of the possession during this one-sided encounter but it felt like much more. The home side also had 56% of territory.613 – Ireland made good use of all that ball and made 613 metres in attack. Robbie Henshaw was top of the list with 72, while Simon Zebo made 67 and Andrew Trimble 66.3 – Fergus McFadden was something of a super-sub, coming off the bench three times in this one game! He finally left an indellible mark on the match with a try in the 78th minute.22 – Italy blindside Francesco Minto was the top tackler in the match with 22.Nice moves: McFadden makes a break while ref Angus Gardner hurdles Sergio Parisse (Pic: Inpho) Ireland answered their critics and ran nine tries past a poor and injury-hit Italy side to notch up their first win of this RBS 6 Nations in comprehensive style.It took just six minutes for Andrew Trimble to open the scoring with the first try of the day and the last came in the final two minutes of this one-sided match as Italy proved unable to live with the pace and persistence of Ireland.In between, Jamie Heaslip grabbed two tries and among the other try-scorers was replacement hooker Sean Cronin, who came on to win his 50th cap and celebrated by crossing the line just four minutes later.Double delight: Jamie Heaslip celebrates his second try. (Photo: Inpho)It was a grim afternoon for Italy. They scored two tries in the second half but that was scant consolation and their coach Jacques Brunel said after the game: “In the first three matches there has been some positives but there weren’t any today.” WHAT’S HOT…Ireland’s patience – A good number of Ireland’s nine tries came from long build-ups through a dozen phases or more. They wore the Italy defence down then capitalised in a ruthless fashion by cutting them to shreds.Set pieces – Ireland won 100% of their lineouts and scrums, giving themselves a great platform to work from. As skipper Rory Best said after the game: “It’s been a big rock for us over the years, our set pieces, so it’s nice to get that back.”The Italy fans – Despite seeing their team well beaten, the travelling fans still made themselves heard, singing their hearts out during the match and after the final whistle.At last: David Odiete scores Italy’s first try, after they had conceded seven. (Photo: Inpho)WHAT’S NOT…Italy, in general – Just a few weeks ago Italy came so very close to their first win in Paris, but they looked a shadow of that side today as they buckled under the physical pressure Ireland put on them from the outset. As the Italy skipper Sergio Parisse said after the game: “It was very bad and it was everybody’s fault.”The Italy lineout – Italy lost three lineouts on their own throw and didn’t manage to pinch any from Ireland, with Devin Toner ruling the roost by taking seven lineouts. The Italians were unlucky in that they lost both starting locks to injury in the first half but they still need to do better. Both teams came into this match looking for their first win of the tournament. How did the game pan out? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight last_img read more

EDM Media launches three new lists

first_imgEDM Media launches three new lists List company EDM Media has launched three new mailing lists that are relevant for charity fundraisers – data from The Guideposts Trust, Hopegivers International, and the Sweepstake file.Mental health charity Guideposts Trust runs an ongoing monthly direct mail programme. The new data being released for rental for the first time is 8,000 names that have responded specifically to monthly survey mailings. Names are 60% female, 39% male, predominantly aged 60+ with 54% retired. Known hobbies include knitting, gardening, puzzles, reading and stamp/coin collecting.Hopegivers International’s list consists of 4,591 active donors who have been recruited by direct mail and given generously to the charity. It is likely to grow significantly in forthcoming months.The list will perform exceptionally well for direct mail campaigns, for mail order catalogues and charity mailers targeting the over 50s market. Previously only available on a swap basis, the data “is ideal for tests and is responding well to third world charity offers”.Profiling and data analysis shows that these individuals tend to support a wide range of charitable causes, particularly Christian and third world causes.The Sweepstake File consists of 45,000 names that have entered instant cash prize draws, inserted into various mailings, with a chance to win £10,000. The prize draws are run on behalf of a number of charities including medical charities for sick children and animal related causes. The responders have not donated to the charities concerned, but did enter the free prize draw.EDM Media say that “this new list is ideal for sweepstake and incentivised mail order offers, as well as raffle and competition mailers”.There is a gender split of 58% female to 42% male, they tend to be over 45 years old and they respond particularly well to direct mail offers. The Sweepstake File is MPS screened.www.edmmedia.co.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Friends mourn slain Ole Miss student Ally Kostial: ‘She didn’t deserve this’

first_imgAlly Kostial/Facebook(OXFORD, Miss.) — Shocked friends are mourning the beloved Ole Miss student who was allegedly killed by a college classmate.The body of Alexandria “Ally” Kostial was discovered in Harmontown, Mississippi, on Saturday. Brandon Theesfeld, 22, was arrested Monday for murder, authorities said.“The fact that it happened to Ally, it’s so hard to believe,” college friend Rachel Macdonald told ABC News. “It’s so sad and she didn’t deserve this. No one deserved that.”Theesfeld and Kostial knew each other for four years, Macdonald said.“I never would’ve seen him doing that,” said Macdonald, who said she’s known Theesfeld for about two years. “Not to say that he couldn’t, ’cause anyone’s capable of anything.”This photo posted on one of Kostial’s social media pages shows Kostial and Theesfeld together.As for Kostial, Macdonald remembered her smile as contagious.“She knew how to make everyone laugh. She knew how to make everyone feel loved … she went out of her way for anyone, whether she knew them or not,” Macdonald said. “No matter what came her way she tried to make a positive out of the situation.”Kostial’s high school friend, Casey Hendrickson, said she was one of the “most positive, radiant people I’ve ever met.”“Always smiling, always happy,” Hendrickson told ABC News. “Never had a bad thing to say about literally anyone.”Kostial, a St. Louis native studying marketing at Ole Miss’ School of Business Administration, was on campus for summer classes, according to her father.Her cause of death has not been released.Theesfeld was a student in the School of Business Administration and has since been suspended from the university, according to the school.He was taken into custody at a gas station in Memphis, police said, and is now in custody in Lafayette County, Mississippi. He has not entered a plea.Theesfeld’s father told ABC Dallas affiliate WFAA-TV on Tuesday, “I’ve spoken to Brandon. I ask that everyone give him the benefit of the doubt that he is innocent.”The father told WFAA-TV that the family would soon be retaining legal representation.The university’s Interim chancellor, Larry Sparks, said in a statement, “Ally was an engaged member of our community with friends across our campus and a promising future. The university will support the Kostial family in every way we can during this traumatic time.”Sparks added, “Ally’s death shocks the conscience and causes much pain and sorrow, but it does not define our campus community. We must draw strength from what brings us together as a community, even as we grieve this unspeakable loss.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Talent put forward as most vital resource

first_imgTalent put forward as most vital resourceOn 12 Sep 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article The war for the best staff allows us to step above ‘competent’ up to a new level in recognising of abilityThe flyer for the first Talent Officer Conference, held recently in the US, claimed that the most important corporate resource in the coming years will be talent. The conference was addressed by talent officers from organisations such as IBM, Fidelity and KPMG. This follows the trend of US companies replacing their HR director with a chief talent officer.The big push in the US comes from a McKinsey study published in 1998 under the title The War for Talent. As so often happens, the UK has taken up the idea. The recently formed Talent Foundation talks of organisations “fighting a costly war for talent” and articles and books are appearing quoting this talent war metaphor.On the positive side, the invocation of talent may be a necessary counterblast to mechanistic ideas about competence. Given a choice of an employer’s reference describing you, would you prefer “This person is competent” or “This person is talented”? Talent allows us to get out of the mediocrity of competence into recognising the varying talents of people in organisations.This use of “talent” can imply a holistic quality and this can be of value in moving beyond reductionist competence lists. But a holistic approach is being used by some writers to justify a “sheep and goats” model – there are the chosen few talented people and then there are the rest. This elitism is not justified by the evidence. A talented rugby player may not be talented at tennis, and vice versa. And neither may be talented at music or management. And by the same token, a talented finance director can turn out to be a disaster as a CEO.A feature of the elitist use of talent leads to talk of a “talent pool”. This metaphor has come to mean that there is a limited number of talented people and you need to fish them out of the pool. The proponents of this view then switch metaphors to argue for a war. The original McKinsey article says the war was once “a sequence of setpiece recruiting battles” but is now “an endless series of skirmishes”. I’m not sure these bloodthirsty metaphors are helpful. What is more heartening is that there are many who take a developmental view and see the nurturing of the talents of all employees as a priority.But we also have to be careful about excessive individualism. The evidence from learning organisation research is that developing individuals is not enough. The often-quoted critique is that you can have a team where each individual has an IQ of 150 but the collective IQ is 50. It may be of limited value to develop people as individuals if other features of the workplace are not conducive to high performance.Ultimately we need to consider if we need to use the term “talent”. Research has shown that investing in the people side of the business pays off. We need more key decision-makers to recognise this. If invoking the concept of “talent” is needed to do this, then so be it.Professor Ian Cunningham is visiting professor of organisational capability at Middlesex Universitylast_img read more
