France: End of Autumn Series report

first_imgThierry Dusautoir also failed to reproduce against Argentina the form he showed in the win over Australia, and the France captain will have be well managed by Saint-Andre if his ageing body is to be in good shape at next year’s World Cup. Not a problem for openside Bernard Le Roux, the pick of the France pack in the November Tests. The 25-year-old Racing man has grown in confidence as a ball-carrier, allying this skill to his tireless tackling, foraging at the breakdown and his line-out jumping.Nuisance: Bernard Le Roux has been a menace to the oppositionVisit for all the latest Rugby World subscription deals, or find out how to download the digital edition of the magazine at The enigmatic French had a largely positive Autumn Series, but in typical style, ended on a bum note with a loss to the Pumas Full-backSouth African-born Scott Spedding played every minute of the three Tests and acquitted himself well. A dream debut against Fiji – in which he carried for more metres than any other French player and created two tries for Teddy Thomas – was followed by a more hesitant performance vs Australia. Exposed defensively on a couple of occasions, he still impressed with his intelligent kicking game and Spedding finished the triumvirate of Tests with a steady display against Argentina. His contrasting style to last season’s incumbent, the small and speedy Brice Dulin (currently out injured) gives Philippe Saint-Andre healthy strength in depth at the back.WingsAfter a quiet start to the season with Toulouse, Yoann Huget made a welcome return to form with Les Bleus and was the standout French back in the disappointing defeat to Argentina. Solid in defence and intelligent in attack, he complements the raw pace and power of Teddy Thomas, undoubtedly the find of the autumn for France. The 21-year-old left wing scored a hat-trick of tries on his debut against Fiji, and followed that with a brilliant individual effort vs Australia, weaving past five Wallabies en route to the try-line. He was axed from the squad for the Argentina Test because of poor timekeeping, a crass act by Saint-Andre for a player so young, but his replacement – Maxime Medard – had a night to forget and may have played his last game in a French shirt.Centre of attention: Alexandre Dumoulin (centre) can be happy with his contributionCentreSaint-Andre rated Alexandre Dumoulin as the pick of the backs in November and the outside-centre certainly looked at ease in his first two Test matches. Although Racing teammate Teddy Thomas grabbed the headlines with his hat-trick of tries against Fiji, the 25-year-old Dumoulin put in a polished performance, repeatedly breaking the Islanders’ gain line and offloading well out of contact. Having earned comparisons with a young Yannick Jauzion, Dumoulin showed the other side of his game against Australia, making six big tackles in the first 40 minutes before a thigh injury ruled him out for the rest of the month.Neither of his replacements, Mathieu Bastareaud and Maxime Mermoz, showed anywhere near the same quality, and Dumoulin will be free to resume his midfield partnership with Wesley Fofana in the Six Nations. The Clermont centre suffered last season because of all the upheaval at half-back in the French squad but Fofana offered glimpses this month of the form he showed when he burst onto the scene two seasons ago, and playing outside club colleague Camille Lopez will only aid France next year.Half-backsThe Argentine Test was a step back for both fly-half Camille Lopez and Sebastien Tillous-Borde. The former regressed the longer November wore on, culminating in his 47th minute substitution against the Pumas. On came Rory Kockott, and the Castres’ scrum-half introduced a far greater urgency to the French game than in the first 40 minutes. Decisive, dynamic and mixing his game with a variety of clever kicks, deft passes and sniping runs, the South Africa should take possession of the No 9 shirt next year. Lopez will probably partner Kockott in the Six Nations, though the Clermont fly-half ended on a low note with his anonymous performance against Argentina. Seven days previously, Lopez had been outstanding in the win over the Aussies (landing six from seven shots at goal) but he’ll need to find consistency if he doesn’t wish to be remembered as just another French fly-half who flattered to deceive.Best foot forward: Camille Lopez appears to have nailed down the 10 slotFront rowToulouse hooker Guilhem Guirado was one of the successes of November for France and will start in the No 2 jersey in the Six Nations even with the return from injury of Dimitri Szarzewski. No forward carried more often than Guirado against Australia and his throwing in that Test was an improvement on the Fiji game. Quick and aggressive in the loose, Guirado’s appearance as a second-half substitute against Argentina helped galvanise the French pack and perhaps signalled the end of Benjamin Kayser’s international career.Similarly, the introduction of Alex Menini on 37 minutes brought more power and pugnacity to the France scrum. A fierce tackler – he made 12 against the Wallabies – Menini needs to tighten his discipline but in the battle with Xavier Chiocci for the loosehead’s jersey he is clearly ahead after the November Tests. On the tighthead side of the scrum, the great Nicolas Mas is now looking every one of his 34 years and Kiwi-born Uini Atonio has probably played himself into the starting line-up for the Six Nations.Second rowPascal Pape and Yoann Maestri locked the French scrum for the first Two Tests and will start in the Six Nations. The pair might not have the athleticism of a Courtney Lawes or a Brodie Retallick , but they are big, hard men who give the French set-piece a precious stability. Maestri was rested for the Pumas Test, his place going to  Sebastien Vahaamahina, but not for the first time in a French shirt the 23-year-old struggled to transfer his Clermont club form onto the international arena. France are short in depth in the engine room and Saint-Andre needs Pape and Maestri to stay fit next year.Timber: Yoann Maestri gives France much-needed grunt as he brings down Will SkeltonBack rowDamien Chouly has a fight on his hands to hang onto the No 8 shirt for the Six Nations. Imanol Harinordoquy, Louis Picamoles and Charles Ollivon (who made two brief appearances from the bench this month) are all challenging for the position, and all offer more offensively than the Clermont captain. His 14 tackles against Australia underlined Chouly’s defensive worth to France – not forgetting his skill as a line-out jumper – but he was nowhere to be seen as a ball-carrier and against Argentina was outplayed in the loose by the Pumas’ back-row. Shining star: Teddy Thomas scored four tries in two games France’s November Tests are over and coach Philippe Saint-Andre will have seen some encouraging signs. A 40-15 victory over Fiji was followed by the heartstopping 29-26 defeat of Australia, but then France were beaten 18-13 by Argentina, their first home defeat in seven years to the Pumas. So is it back to the drawing board for PSA or more a case of drumming into his players’ heads the reminder that a great Gallic win doesn’t always have to be followed by a feeble French loss…?

Hospital board packet issue continuesDodd speaks out about public information policy

first_img Pinterest WhatsApp Medical Center Hospital administration’s decision to withhold Ector County Hospital District board packets from the media and the public until after the board meets continues to cause concern among some board members and Freedom of Information Act experts. District 1 board member Bryn Dodd said administration’s decision last month prompted her to request they put an item on Tuesday’s meeting agenda to discuss the issue, but she never received a response. The board packet typically contains mostly updates on the hospital’s finances and additional information about items listed on the agenda the board is expected to discuss, and often, vote on. MCH receives both property tax from Ector County, as well as sales tax. MCH President and CEO Rick Napper previously stated the board packet is only public information after the board decides on it, but Freedom of Information experts said what the entity is doing was wrong. “I just don’t think that’s valid,” said Kelley Shannon, executive director of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas. “If (board) members are getting it, it’s public information at that point.” Napper also previously stated both he and the hospital’s attorney could provide “the exact statement that covers why we didn’t send that packet out.” After numerous requests last month for the statute the hospital used to make that determination, the hospital’s lead attorney Ellie Bane said via email, “ECHD determined that Board packet information will be accessed by the Board members only prior to the Board meeting. The public may request the Board packet, as well as other documents, via the Public Information Act. In halting the previous practice of providing Board packets to the media, ECHD relied upon the Texas Open Meetings and Public Information Act.” No specific statute was provided. Dodd sent her request March 14 to discuss the topic via email to Board Chair Mary Thompson and Napper, per the board’s bylaws. “I thought this would be a great opportunity for the board to discuss it together and come up with some kind of solution to address the issue that’s caused so much controversy in the last month or so,” she said. When asked about the request prior to the regular board meeting Tuesday, Thompson said, “you never put me in the paper, so why ask me?” She then said they were going to discuss the matter in executive session, but said she wasn’t sure which item on the agenda it was listed under. The Open Meetings Act requires executive session items are covered under specific statutes and listed on board agendas. “I would have to look it up. (It’s) probably legal matters, I would imagine — personnel (and) legal matters,” Thompson said before walking away. Napper then said he thought Thompson was actually referring to his evaluation as CEO because Dodd had previously asked him about it. Napper said the board does his review in executive session and this is his first one. “The joint commission requires that I have an evaluation done,” he said, adding that it is an annual review. “The whole process is being made simpler because the one that we had here is not — it was very broad. It didn’t really give the board a lot of information.” The agenda for Tuesday did not show the CEO, specifically, would be undergoing an annual review. Items listed under executive session on the agenda included: consultation with attorney regarding legal matter and legal issues; deliberation regarding exchange, lease or value of real property; deliberation and evaluation of officers and employees of ECHD; deliberation regarding negotiations for health care services; information that, if disclosed, would give advantage to a competitor; and advice, recommendations, opinions or other material reflecting the policymaking processes of ECHD. Shannon said if the board were to evaluate the CEO, or discuss something of higher public interest, the entity would need to be more specific on the agenda so the public has an idea of what’s going on — even if it’s in executive session. “The higher the level of interest, the more specific they need to be,” she said. Shannon added it is also worth pointing out that board members have the right to free speech so they can come out after executive session and talk about what they discussed if they wish. In other words, elected officials cannot tell other elected officials that they cannot publicly comment on any matter. District 5’s Don Hallmark said Wednesday the board did not discuss the CEO’s evaluation. In regard to board packets, Napper said Tuesday he wasn’t sure if the hospital’s attorney was even ready to talk about the issue. “She’s still, she just went to a session to find out what is actually happening with board packets around the state of Texas to make sure we’re following the guidelines.” When asked if he did not know whether they were following the guidelines, Napper said, “we believe we are, you guys (the Odessa American) are stating we’re not.” Napper further said he is going to wait until executive session to talk to the attorney about it. When asked if it was listed as an item on the agenda Tuesday, he said it was not. When asked if any discussion about the board packets was taking place Tuesday, he said no. Dodd said as soon as they went behind closed doors, she was confronted with concerns that a board packet had been “leaked” to the OA and asked if she was the person who leaked it. “We (board members) have been told that information is confidential and not public record until the board discussed the documents,” Dodd said. Shannon said even if a board member did send anyone the board packet that it is public information and “absolutely, board members can give that out. “All they’re doing is supplying some public information to somebody. They’re trying to help the public understand what’s going on in the meeting — what’s wrong with that? It’s their duty. Good thing somebody’s trying to be transparent and protect the public’s right to know what’s going on.” Hallmark said he believes they will come up with a solution that will benefit everybody. “We want to be transparent, but we also want to make sure, our attorney wants to make sure she’s being compliant also,” he said. “I’m under the impression that our attorney feels like there’s an issue with it and she’s just trying to make sure the hospital is doing what’s right.” On Wednesday, the hospital made the board packet for Tuesday’s meeting available on their website, Susan Thorton, MCH community relations manager, said Wednesday either Bane or assistant legal counsel Leah Robertson, would be the ones to answer any questions about the board packets now being posted to the website, but Robertson was out of the office Wednesday afternoon and Bane was unavailable. The Odessa American has filed a complaint with the Texas Attorney General’s office about how the hospital is handling the board packets. PRO-CARE OFFICES The board approved an almost $300,000 bid to relocate the MCH Pro-Care administration offices Tuesday. The hospital currently leases a building to house the offices. The newly approved bid will allow them to make renovations to the Center for Health and Wellness, located off Faudree Road, by building out existing shell space on the first floor of the building. The move is expected to save the hospital money in the long run, District 5 board member Don Hallmark said. The area of renovations would be 1,806 square feet and include six offices, a conference room, break room, copy room and reception area. The project, which will total $298,000, will be funded through contingency capital. It is expected to produce a net present value of $111,001 over five years, a return on investment of 48.89% and has a payback period of 2.7 years. IN OTHER BUSINESS, THE BOARD:Approved a bid for an upgrade to the HVAC systems on four isolation rooms in the central tower for $137,000.Approved the purchase of a Premier staffing management tool.Approved endowment funds distribution to TTUHSC-Permian Basin, Odessa College and UTPB.Approved a second agreement with Oberon Solar, LLC to provide property tax incentives for a solar project in Ector County.Heard an Emergency Department throughput improvements presentation.Heard a United Way of Odessa presentation.Heard a CMS Star Rating presentation.Heard a TTUHSC-Permian Basin report.Heard presentations and awards for April 2019 Associates of the Month and March Patient Satisfaction Winners.

Rex Lumber Troy manager talks trees at Pike County Treasure Forest Association meeting

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article Email the author The Pike County Chapter of the Alabama Treasure Forest Association held its annual meeting on Friday at Cattleman Park.Jared Banta, general manager with Rex Lumber Company, a manufacturer of yellow pine lumber and located in Graceville, Florida, was the featured speaker. Banta brought the gathering of local ATFA members up to date on the construction that is underway on the state-of-the-art lumber mill that will bring industrial growth and new jobs to Pike County.Banta said the June groundbreaking date for the Rex Lumber, Troy, LLC., facility has been pushed back to July 17.

Jaye said noted three reasons that Rex Lumber chose Troy as a mill site, “Location, location, location.”“There’s a lot of timber here and the competitive sawmills are not so close by,” he s said. “The Troy mill is also close enough to the company’s other mill sites to be advantageous. But the main reason is the availability of timber with a large percentage belonging to non-industrial private landowners.Jaye said private landowners adhere to the guidelines of sustainability. They invest and reinvest in soft timber.Rex Lumber has left room for growth at its Troy location.“We plan to be here for the long term,” Jaye said.The Pike County Chapter of Alabama TREASRURE Forest Association awarded TREASURE Forest certification to John Dorrill III and Lee Dorrill and also presented the brothers with the association’s coveted Stewardship Award.

It is taking a lot of groundwork to make the land flat. It’s taking a lot of environmental modeling.”Banta said expectations are that the target opening date of June 2019 will be met. Rex Lumber, Troy is making an investment of more than $100 million in the local economy and 110 direct employment opportunities. Companywide, Rex Lumber employs about 550.

Foundation trusts undermined

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Foundation trusts underminedOn 7 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today The unions have given the Government a bloody nose over the issue offoundation hospitals with a resounding vote of no confidence in the scheme. So wheredoes that leave the HR profession, which has supported the plans all along?The future of foundation hospitals, acclaimed by HR professionals as the wayforward, is starting to look rocky. Originally, the Government only faced union opposition, but last week theparty faithful at the Labour Party conference rejected its plans. And now, manyare predicting that its likely that Tony Blair faces a possible House ofCommons defeat as well. David Hinchliffe, Labour chairman of the Commons health select committee,claims the proposal could be cut from the Health and Social Care Bill when itreturns to the commons at the end of the month. “I think we can defeat it now,” he said. “And, if I was abetting man, I would say we will.” The policy to build foundation hospitals, which aims to give top-performinghospitals the financial freedom to spend as they see fit, has been criticisedsince the day it was mooted. Opponents fear a two-tier system will develop, with staff being poached fromnon-foundation hospitals, leading to a decline in their quality of service. But HR professionals disagree, saying achieving foundation status will givethem the ability to respond to local needs, and will ultimately improve thestandard of patient care. Mike Griffin, HR director at Kings College Hospital NHS Trust, said he hopesthat foundation hospitals get the go-ahead. “If [the plans for] foundation hospitals fell at this late stage wewould be very disappointed, and would see it as an opportunity lost,” hesaid. Advantages The trust has applied for foundation status, and Griffin believes this isthe way forward. “Being a foundation hospital is of considerable advantage to patientsand users,” he said. “It would strengthen and enhance the quality ofour services.” Griffin said he does not believe trusts with foundation status would poachstaff. NHS HR director Andrew Foster echoes Griffin’s view. In June, Foster toldPersonnel Today that while he could understand concerns that the creation of foundationhospitals might lead to a two-tier health service, the fears were unfounded asevery hospital would eventually be granted foundation status. “This approach is a process intended to raise everybody’sstandards,” he said. “Eventually, foundation trusts will be themodel.” Foster said that while the NHS waited for all trusts to achieve foundationstatus, local employers may be required to co-operate with each other andensure that trusts did not enter into price wars. The Association of Healthcare Human Resource Management (AHHRM) also backsthe scheme, claiming it will provide greater opportunities for HR. Peter King, executive officer at AHHRM, said the organisation is watchingthe situation. “But,” he said, “at the end of the day we arepublic servants, and will do what the Government wants.” He said foundation status offers many advantages, but trusts need to be surethat they have the HR capacity to cope with the changes. However, despite reassurances from health secretary John Reid that the planwas “the greatest peacetime programme of improving the NHS”, unionsare still unhappy about the proposal. In his final conference speech before retiring as general secretary of theTransport and General Workers Union Sir Bill Morris said the plans forfoundation hospitals had been “worked out on the back of anenvelope”, and would lead to “excellence of the few and misery forthe many”. He said successive Tory governments had tried to dismantle the NHS, and thedevelopment of foundation hospitals “would be a self-inflicted wound – agift to a future Tory government to destroy the NHS”. Dave Prentis, general secretary of Unison, the biggest health workers’union, proposed at the Labour Party conference the motion that the plans shouldbe shelved. He said the reforms were “ill-conceived”, and woulddivide “the best from the rest”. Prentis said he was very pleased with the vote and the fact that so manyconstituencies had supported the union. “All we want to do now is say to the Government that this is yourchance to listen,” he said. “We want to sit down and talk about howto deliver the best possible healthcare for all our people.” The British Medical Association also wants ministers to drop the policy. Itfears that if just a few trusts are given foundation status in the first waveof implementation, they will receive preferential treatment, and inequalitiesin the health service will increase.

Rent controls are top concern for estate agents, reveals report

first_imgHome » News » Rent controls are top concern for estate agents, reveals report previous nextRegulation & LawRent controls are top concern for estate agents, reveals reportThe spectre of rent controls or caps is a much greater worry for the industry than Brexit or the tenant fees ban, says Goodlord.Nigel Lewis11th February 20200511 Views Estate agents are more worried about the potential introduction of rent controls across the UK than any other issues, a key survey of sentiment within the industry has revealed this morning.Just over half (53%) of all agents say it is their greatest worry at the moment, way ahead of almost all other issues facing agents.This includes (in descending order) property market volumes, the tenant fees ban, making ends meet, supplier price increases, AML compliance, Brexit and property prices.Agents also no longer seem worried by the ‘online agent threat’ after the collapse or struggles of several high-profile websites including eMoov, Tepilo, Upad and Hatched.Only 10% of agents told lettings platform Goodlord’s researchers that they are worried by competition from hybrid and online competitors.Agents’ worries over rent controls seems odd given that it is only Scotland where they have gained any traction.In the rest of the UK only the cities of London and Manchester have said they’d like to implement rent controls or caps, but don’t yet have the powers to implement them – and are unlikely to get them while the Conservatives are in power.During the election campaign Jenrick appeared to go soft on rent controls, accepting that something needs to be done to reign-in excessive increases in rents. But he said ‘traditional’ rent controls were out of the question.“Whilst a significant proportion are currently pessimistic about the future of the industry, it’s heartening to see that a much greater proportion are optimistic about the agencies they work for,” says Tom Mundy, COO at Goodlord.“Despite this being a major period of transition for the whole industry, most are doing all they can to make the best of a tough climate.”Read the report in full.   goodlord rent caps rent controls Tom Mundy estate agents February 11, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
