Rugby Pre-Season Guide: Part One

first_imgThe backs will work on basic running patterns, passing and kicking skills, in line with the coach’s vision for the team. The pack can work on their lineout. This will be the basics of lifting and jumping in the lineout at first. This means trying lifting pods and working on the throw.This can progress to setting out different-coloured cones so that you work on getting the lifters and jumpers to move. At the end you can turn it into a competition with pods jumping against each other, adding an element of fun.The sting in the tail of Tuesday’s session comes from Navidi. “We do aerobic interval running. It’s very simple – 15 seconds running, 15 seconds off. It’s about how far you can go. You can tailor it. If you start on the try-line, our back-rowers normally hit the far 22. So get everyone on the line and put a cone down as a target for each position, one for front-rows, one for the locks etc.”He suggests doing a set of five runs, rest, then go back for a final set of five.On the Thursday session Navidi wants a similar set-up but with more intensity. However, the skills you concentrate 
on must change to keep it fresh. For example, your touch games can reflect a skill you want to focus on, like a touched player hitting the ground and working on ball-presentation skills. Or introduce pared-down defensive drills, purely looking at a chain of players rushing up and communicating.At the end of Thursday’s session, 
do away with the runs and work in an old-school circuit. No equipment is really needed. Partner up. Aim for a work:rest ratio of one:one, doing 30 seconds of an exercise and having 30 seconds off for your partner to do the exercise before quickly moving to the next exercise. Or do this for 15 seconds each and complete the circuit twice. Navidi would have players wrestling, doing short sprint shuttles, wheelbarrows and burpees, and then jumping laterally over a hurdle, cone or pitch marking.Lineout time: Auckland Blues during pre-seasonIn week two, on the field there is a similar feel. But Navidi wants a slight increase in time spent on games. It ramps up again in week three, with more time spent on games and added 
reps for fitness.In the gym, true beginners should stick with the plan (P49). For more advanced lifters, increase weight and drop some reps to develop strength. Then shift the focus on day one and two to how quickly you move moderate weight (70-80% of your top weight) for power.Navidi has a plan to take you towards the break with a clearer team identity.“When you have forwards and backs split, you should use the lineout calls 
as well as backs moves,” he says. “Try 
it at the start of the session. It’s low in intensity. Do it for 20 minutes, then come together for team structure. Then go into blocks of games and running, come back, do it again. Repeat this as often as your coach feels necessary, depending on how fit you want to get.“Thursday of week three you want more intensity. Do what you worked on on Tuesday but as a team. Run to different areas of the field, building in ‘lineout here’. Do up to five phases, then go ‘scrum here’.“You are going for fatigue then into games, then back into rugby. 
Finish with sprints from the halfway. Look for speed and power, not fitness.”Oh, and about Saturdays… Rugby Pre-Season Guide: Part OneW HEN ASKED to concoct the dream pre-season for a fictional amateur side, Cardiff Blues and Wales flanker Josh Navidi laughs. “The dream pre-season is no pre-season!” he says.We know what he means. Anyone who has dragged their backside through a summer regime is familiar with the low-level dread you feel before heading out on the field; it’s more vampire bats than butterflies flapping around in your stomach.However, having asked around we concluded that Old Tatooineans – our fictional side – would best benefit from a pre-season split into two blocks of three weeks of graft, before any friendly matches are played, with a week off between the two blocks.There is running, you can’t escape that. Contact on the hard ground is 
in there too. But we’ve done our best to mix things up, offering variety and reasoning. Over the following pages, we have the outline of a basic weights programme, an idiot’s guide to eating while you train, plus tips from the pros and two brutal session plans you take to your club. Enjoy!Lifting standards: Our co-author, Josh Navidi of Cardiff Blues and WalesBlock One“With the Cardiff Blues, we normally have the first two weeks doing weights and a bit of skills,” says Navidi, now 
Old Tatooineans’ head of strength 
and conditioning. “Then you build up 
to more rugby specifics. Normally we don’t go straight in and do rugby.“So if we build gradually it’ll be fine…”What this means is that our team will take part in two blocks of training, with the first one focusing on conditioning and skills, with a little bit of team shape. Block two introduces a lot more rugby.With block one, ‘gradual’ means starting in one place: the bear pit of the gym. We expect our players to hit the gym a minimum of two times a week, but we would hope it’s three times – see our basic plans top right. We’d also love our team to train on Tuesday and Thursday nights, with on-field work as a squad on a Saturday morning (more on that on pages 51 and 52).Navidi – a qualified personal trainer, as well as an all-action back-rower – wrote our gym plan. We’ve approached this as if you have very little experience in the gym – we want you to build a base, so for a few months at least, it’ll be tough. We want you to put on some muscle.On the field, during the first few weeks of pre-season, you only have a short period of time with the team. “I’m massive on having anaerobic games, simple touch games,” Navidi says of 
his ideal session.“We do a three-minute block, then we’ll 
go into rugby or a specific skills session that’s still quite high in intensity. When I’ve tried it with young players, the standard drops after two minutes. You want to keep the intensity. So do two minutes at first.”Wrestlers: Leinster go at each other in trainingWe can’t tell you what to do for every minute of your sessions – coaches have to be flexible and clear on their plan. However, Old Tatooineans get a mix in the opening fortnight. The basic outline of our Tuesday training is touch games, split up with basic skills work for backs and forwards. Coaches will decide how often you shuttle between them, depending how fit they want you and the time they want to dedicate to skills.In terms of the Tuesday touch games, play different formats for two minutes 
at a time – 
offside touch (pass backwards after first touch, then you can pass forward) or Fijian touch (if touched once, offload; touched twice, put the ball through your legs).Between these games you can throw in basic skills. With players relatively new to rugby, you might implement static passing, then progress to passing along a line, jogging in fours. This is when we will split, forwards and backs.

Ondang is a house filled with warmth and comfort, which well reflects the ultimate goal the Office for Appropriate Architecture pursues for a residential building. Ondang presents a good example of an affordable duplex home.Save this picture!© Wonseok LeeThe project started by looking into the current problems raised in housing market in South Korea. Many single homes are often overly priced and/or poorly built even though they easily fail to support the residents’ growing needs and wants, and the market value of the real estate has been constantly increasing. Ondang is presented as a result of architect’s long search for a ”proper duplex” that celebrates the right of living and supports the privacy of both the landlord and the tenant living closely.Save this picture!Eploded AxonometricThe clients, parents and two children, have wanted for a family room where each member may spend their time alone and together. For the new family room had to be different from the conventional living room where a family would watch TV on a couch, the architect provided a flexible common space that can support different uses and varying events.Save this picture!© Wonseok LeeLiving room, kitchen and dining area are merged into one large space on the ground floor, which is ready to adapt changing needs of the family through different occasions. By rearranging the furniture or adjusting the lighting, the family room can turn into a living room, a cafe, a play room, a dinning hall or a study area.Save this picture!SectionMother’s role in the family is highlighted in Ondang. In order for the house to efficiently support the homemaker, the kitchen space is located at the very center of the ground floor so that the she or he can watch the children playing in the yard, or in the family room, while occupying himself or herself to varying chores. A number of service spaces are thoroughly connected and aligned, which enables an efficient single flow of homemaking.Save this picture!© Wonseok LeeAs well as the landlord’s own home is to fit the life style of a family of four, the neighbouring rental house is  designed to attract provisional tenants, expectably young professionals or newly wedded couples.   Save this picture!© Wonseok LeeIn a way to support independent and unique life style of of each household, the rental home is laid along the East and West, and the landlord’s home along the South and North.

Providence, R.I.: Black August commemorated

first_imgThe people gathered for the annual Black August: Culture-Convos-CommUNITY — A Commemorative Perspective on Black August and the Struggle for Liberation here on Aug. 24. Kumasi, the official historian of the Black August Organizing Committee, said of the meaning behind Black August: “Black August originated in the California penal system to honor fallen Freedom Fighters, Jonathan Jackson, George Jackson, William Christmas, James McClain and Khatari Gaulden.“Jonathan Jackson was gunned down outside the Marin County, California, courthouse on Aug. 7, 1970, as he attempted to liberate three imprisoned Black Liberation fighters — James McClain, William Christmas and Ruchell Magee — who is the sole survivor of that armed liberation attempt. He is the former co-defendant of Angela Davis and has been locked down for 38 years [now 45 years], most of it in solitary confinement.“George Jackson was assassinated by prison guards during a Black prison rebellion at San Quentin on August 21, 1971.” (tinyurl.com/y2zoj9hc)Comrade John Prince, co-organizer of Behind the Walls, opened the Aug. 24 forum with the Universal Drum Call and Libation/Reflections on the Pioneers, Warriors and Ancestors: Ubuntu & Uhuru! The Behind the Walls Committee was found by prisoners at the Adult Correctional Institute in Rhode Island in 1998.The program included a screening of “Days of the Gun,” detailing the life and revolutionary growth of George Jackson. In the film Jackson states, “I met Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Engels and Mao when I entered prison and they redeemed me.” An intergenerational dialogue followed on the historical and emerging intersections of solidarity across our movements today. Jim Vincent of the NAACP moderated. Attendees and speakers included Sister Raffini, City Councillor Mary Kay Harris, mYia X, Rochelle Lee, Bill Bateman, Hannah R. and Brother Everett Mohammad of the Nation of Islam.Organizers of the event and the CommUNITY expressed gratitude and appreciation to the Amos House for their ongoing support and offering of the facility. The forum also saluted the vendors, program and resource tables, and volunteers who contributed to the gathering.Workers World Party members, mYia X and Phebe Eckfeldt, co-organized and presented an interactive, revolutionary mini-exhibit highlighting Workers World archives on Black August and the Attica prisoner uprising. It included historic Workers World newspapers, literature, books, a video on Shaka Sankofa, T-shirts and buttons. The exhibit was well received by those in attendance as they took pictures, videos, inquired and shared their thoughts. A youth who participated in the dialogue was presented with a WWP “Intro to Revolutionary Studies” gift bag that held WWP literature and a T-shirt.What’s the call? Free ‘em all! Abolish capitalism!

lonosonde signatures of Pc1 pulsations

first_imgThe first observations of the signatures of Pc1 pulsations in ionosonde echo data are reported. Oscillations are frequently observed in Doppler velocity, echo amplitude, group range and skymap echo-location position, and are clearly associated with simultaneous Pc1 geomagnetic micropulsations with a similar frequency. These oscillations, recorded at the sub-auroral Antarctic station of Halley (76° S, 27°W, L ~ 4.2), occur in either or both E- and F-region echo time series during a wide range of ionospheric conditions. Focusing of the ionospheric echoes due to the compressional action of the hydromagnetic wave is suggested as a possible mechanism.last_img read more

Early Cenozoic differentiation of polar marine faunas

first_imgThe widespread assumption that the origin of polar marine faunas is linked to the onset of major global cooling in the Late Eocene – Early Oligocene is being increasingly challenged. The Antarctic fossil record in particular is suggesting that some modern Southern Ocean taxa may have Early Eocene or even Paleocene origins, i.e. well within the Early Cenozoic greenhouse world. A global analysis of one of the largest marine clades at the present day, the Neogastropoda, indicates that not only is there a decrease in the number of species from the tropics to the poles but also a decrease in the evenness of their distribution. A small number of neogastropod families with predominantly generalist trophic strategies at both poles points to the key role of seasonality in structuring the highest latitude marine assemblages. A distinct latitudinal gradient in seasonality is temperature-invariant and would have operated through periods of global warmth such as the Early Cenozoic. To test this concept a second global analysis was undertaken of earliest Cenozoic (Paleocene) neogastropods and this does indeed show a certain degree of faunal differentiation at both poles. The Buccinidae, s.l. is especially well developed at this time, and this is a major generalist taxon at the present day. There is an element of asymmetry associated with this development of Paleocene polar faunas in that those in the south are more strongly differentiated than their northern counterparts; this can in turn be linked to the already substantial isolation of the southern high latitudes. The key role of seasonality in the formation of polar marine faunas has implications for contemporary ecosystem structure and stability.last_img read more
