The best leg work outs

first_imgThese exercises are quite similar to lunges, except that you lunge at a 45 degree angle. This angle will strengthen the groin, and inner quads which are vital when you need to perform a powerful, speedy side step. Unlike the squats above, don’t use a really heavy weight to begin with, as you’re more likely to injure yourself; instead, gradually build your weight up. 3 sets of 10-15 reps should do it.DeadliftThe deadlift is also a classic exercise for every rugby player because they’re great for back and hamstring strength, as well as keeping up your core stability.Bend your knees and grab hold of a barbell on the floor. Keeping your back in a neutral position, lift the bar so it rubs up your shins and thighs until you are standing. Lower it slowly back down again. Deadlifts should also be performed in a pyramid fashion – 4 sets of 5 reps with a 2-3 rep on the final set.CycleWhether you cycle to work or just on a static at the gym, working your legs burns more calories than most other body parts. Because working your legs means you’ll burn an insane amount of calories, so it’s worth upping your carb intake and having a protein shake after you’ve done a serious leg work out to bulk up.Stretch! IF YOU want big legs in time for this season, then you’ve just got time to fit in some pre-season exercises. If you want to be taken seriously, you could always make the most out of your gym and book a course of training sessions with a personal trainer. To get the most out of bulking up your legs follow these simple, efficient leg workouts that will definitely increase your muscle mass in time for the Rugby season.Toulon’s rugby performance director Steve Walsh shares his view that bigger legs equals better performance on the pitch. He says, “legs are everything in rugby. You can have a strong upper body but if your legs are week you’re wasting your time. If you can only work out twice a week, make sure you do some leg work.”Now, you don’t need fitness instructor qualifications to know that building up your leg muscle requires good core stability and a base fitness level, so make sure these are up to scratch before you begin any serious leg work outs.SquatsSquats are an all round good exercise for rugby lads, especially the forwards. For a pure and simple squat hold a barbell across your shoulders, keep your back upright and bend your knees slowly, until your thighs are parallel to the floor.To take things to the next level once you’ve mastered a basic squat, try sets of pyramid squats; it’s the ultimate leg burner:The idea of pyramid squats is to build up to a maximum weight, thereby slowly improving your ability in resistance training. Try doing four sets, in exactly the same way as the before, but with each set increase your weight. The final set should be 2-3 reps of maximum weight.Side-step squats LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Don’t forget to stretch! Not only can stretching prevent injuries, but there’s plenty of research that suggests solid strength can increase just from stretching. If you want big legs then it’s vital to stretch to get the most development and flexibility.Rugby demands both endurance and power, of which power plays a more dominant role. With a contact sport, your opposition is going to have powerful legs too; and so one of you is going to end up on the ground – so if you follow these exercises you can make sure it’s not you.last_img read more

Una ‘plantilla’ alternativa orientará la labor presupuestaria en la Convención…

first_img Rector Hopkinsville, KY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Pittsburgh, PA [Episcopal News Service – Indianápolis, Indiana] El Comité Permanente conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PBF, por su sigla en inglés) de la Iglesia Episcopal elaborará su propuesta presupuestaria 2013-1015 en la plantilla de un presupuesto alternativo que propusiera recientemente la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori.Los miembros del comité dijeron, en el curso del debate y la votación de su primera reunión aquí en la mañana del 4 de julio, que habían elegido la “plantilla” de la propuesta presupuestaria de la obispa primada, y no necesariamente sus cifras.El PBF emitió una declaración más tarde en el día en la cual decía que el presupuesto se había elegido porque “ofrecía un claro marco misionero para el presupuesto y se basaba en información actualizada respecto a los ingresos” y que la decisión se tomó “sin ningún compromiso con ninguna de las partidas específicas” del presupuesto.El presupuesto alternativo tiene una estructura diferente al anteproyecto de presupuesto aprobado por el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia en enero y remitido al PBF tal como lo mandan los Cánones de la Iglesia (en el Canon I.4.6) y las Reglas Conjuntas de la Convención General (en II.10 10 (a)). Está estructurado en torno a las Cinco Marcas de la Misión de la Comunión Anglicana, que la Convención General respaldó en 2009 (por vía de la Resolución D027) y dijo que el presupuesto de la Iglesia 2013-2015 debe centrarse en las marcas como “prioridades estratégicas”.El Rdo. Douglas Sparks, diputado por Minnesota, propuso que el comité adoptara la estructura del presupuesto de la obispa primada “sin apoyar ningún dinero ni ninguna partida” de la propuesta.Pero, advertía Steve Lane, obispo diocesano de Maine y vicepresidente del PBF, “cuando la plantilla llegue, no va a estar llena de ceros; va a venir con sus partidas y entonces vamos a decidir respecto a ellas”.“No estamos eligiendo un presupuesto, estamos eligiendo un punto de partida”, dijo Steve Smith, miembro del PBF y diputado por Vermont.Sin embargo, la Rda. Canóniga Mally Lloyd, diputada por Massachusetts, pidió que la plantilla esté en cero porque usar las cifras de cualquier presupuesto “le da demasiado peso a ese presupuesto en particular”.Lane dijo que llevar a cero las cifras de cada partida o de ambos presupuestos aumentaría enormemente el trabajo de las subsecciones del comité que trabajarán en los detalles de las diferentes secciones del presupuesto, “en lugar de mirarla y hacer ajustes”.Sparks y otros comenzaron a referirse a la plantilla durante el debate como el presupuesto de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión. Y, debido a que la decisión de la obispa primada de proponer un presupuesto alternativo encontró algunas objeciones, William Fleener, miembro del comité y diputado por Michigan Occidental, alentó a sus colegas a “desviar algo del bagaje que le acompaña”, refiriéndose al presupuesto como las Cinco Marcas de la Misión.Jim Mathes, miembro del Comité y obispo de la Diócesis de San Diego, dijo que al usar la plantilla el comité estaría ofreciendo una plataforma para describir la obra de la Iglesia Episcopal y agregó, “necesitamos poder contar la historia” en las diócesis de “por qué deben tomarse esos valiosos recursos (de una diócesis) y ponerlos a funcionar aquí” en un presupuesto de toda la Iglesia.“Me preocupa que estemos dándole cabida en este proceso a demasiado bagaje y falta de confianza y a la manera en que esta Iglesia desafortunadamente ha estado funcionando durante buen número de años”, dijo Ed Konieczny, obispo de Oklahoma, a sus colegas del PBF. “Nosotros como un comité tenemos una oportunidad de sentar una pauta diferente en el modo en que vamos a funcionar”.“Olvidémonos de cómo llegamos a esas cifras. Dejemos de ser mutuamente desconfiados, de [pensar] que hay una agenda oculta, de que alguien está tratando de apoderarse de la Iglesia, y pongamos manos a la obra de resolver cómo vamos a ser la Iglesia que invierta en el futuro, que se trata de la misión de Jesucristo, y no de un montón de basura política”.Horas después, el propio 4 de julio, el comité celebró una audiencia destinada a escuchar a los miembros de la Iglesia plantear cómo las Cinco Marcas de la Misión se aplican a los programas que ellos apoyan. Muchos testigos abogaron a favor de que la Iglesia invirtiera en la formación cristiana y en el ministerio de los jóvenes y de los jóvenes adultos.“Si no apoyamos la formación, no quedará nadie para alcanzar esas otras cinco metas del presupuesto porque tenemos que formar al pueblo de nuestra Iglesia”, dijo al comité Beth Ferguson, diputada suplente de Utah.La Rda. Megan Castellan, diputada por Arizona y capellán de un campus universitario con la Fraternidad de Cantórbery de la Universidad del Norte de Arizona, le dijo al comité que su ministerio pudo llegar a ser como un resultado de la inversión de la Iglesia en el ministerio de los jóvenes y de los jóvenes adultos.“Tengo 28 años y he sido sacerdote durante cuatro años. Eso se debe a que hace una generación la Iglesia Episcopal creyó necesario tener programas denominacionales para personas que eran jóvenes adultos”, dijo ella.Castellan agregó que ella trabaja con jóvenes todos los días “a los que diariamente sus compañeros les dicen que algo no anda bien con ellos porque van a la iglesia, o les dicen que no son lo bastante cristianos, que van a ir al infierno, que no odian a la gente que deberían odiar”.“El evangelio que llevamos como episcopales, el Jesús que conocemos —el Dios que conocemos— que ama a todos incondicionalmente y que nunca les dejará que se vayan, es algo por lo que esta generación está clamando”, afirmó. “Cada centavo que le quitemos a este campo de misión es un centavo que podría [servir] para darle a una persona joven la esperanza que necesita para seguir adelante”.El 6 de julio, de 7:30 P.M. a 9:00 P.M. se celebrará una audiencia sobre la financiación del presupuesto 2013-2015 y a esa misma hora el 7 de julio el comité tendrá su tercera y última audiencia sobre los gastos del presupuesto. Ambas audiencias están programadas para celebrarse en el hotel Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.Se espera que el comité presente su propuesta presupuestaria el 10 de julio en una sesión conjunta de la Cámara de Obispos y la Cámara de Diputados que tendrá lugar en el salón de los diputados. Lane le dijo al comité temprano en el día que, debido a que el documento del presupuesto debe estar listo para la imprenta a más tardar a las 3:00 P.M. —hora local— del 9 de julio, el comité habrá terminado su propuesta presupuestaria 2013-2015 para el mediodía de esa fecha.El presupuesto se someterá a votación en cada cámara el 12 de julio, el último día de la Convención, y entrará en vigor el 1 de enero de 2013.— La Rda.

Haitian masses shake U.S.-backed regime

first_imgTens of thousands of people took to the streets for 10 days beginning Feb. 7 in every major city of Haiti — Cap Haïtien, Jeremie, Gonaïves, Jacmel and the capital, Port-au-Prince. In a series of hungry, angry marches they demanded President Jovenel Moïse resign. Haitians want enough income to pay their rent, feed their families and send their kids to school. French TV reported people lining up to buy propane for their stoves, water to drink, gasoline for their generators and cars, and whatever food they could scare up from depleted supermarket shelves. Protesters set up flaming barricades of tires and trash and burned fancy cars and government vehicles. Even after police fired at them, they kept returning to the streets; people would disperse and then regroup. The cops reported that they killed seven people and injured dozens. The protests did not let up until Feb. 16. Besides demanding Moïse resign, protesters want to know: “Where is the PetroCaribe money?” Beginning in 2005 under President Hugo Chávez, Venezuela financed an alliance that gave Caribbean and Latin America nations low-cost oil and loans for economic development. The PetroCaribe Alliance eventually spread to 17 countries.Haiti joined in 2006 — much to the displeasure of Washington — and after two years of back-and-forth struggle, the Haitians began to get some benefits. After the 2010 earthquake, ex-President Bill Clinton used his near-total control of Haitian finances to put the U.S.-backed candidate Michel Martelly in as president in the 2010-11 election. (All this maneuvering is documented in the Wikileaks reports published by Haïti-Liberté.)Martelly used his position to embezzle, misspend and misplace about $4 billion of Haiti’s PetroCaribe Fund as documented by several Haitian Senate investigations. Then Martelly got his protégé Moïse in as his successor.When the Trump administration started turning the economic screws on Venezuela in 2017, it affected Haiti. The Haitian government was already in arrears on its loan from Venezuela. Now the government had a good excuse to stop paying entirely and end the PetroCaribe deal.  Washington’s financial enforcer, the International Monetary Fund, had a solution for Haiti regarding this loss of funding: austerity. When Moïse tried to double the price of fuel in July 2018, the reaction was so sharp and militant that he backed down almost completely after three days. But the political and economic changes that losing PetroCaribe funding created led to the latest challenge to the U.S.-sanctioned Haitian regime.The connections between Haiti and Venezuela are older and deeper than the PetroCaribe Fund. Simón Bolivar, the liberator of Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador, got money, arms and a printing press when he took refuge in Haiti after being forced out of Jamaica in 1816. The electoral victory of Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 1990 was an inspiration to Hugo Chávez in his electoral campaign of 1998.Some progressive forces in the streets of Haiti are not only raising the issue of “Kote kob PetroCaribe a” but are also calling for solidarity with the Bolivarian revolution and saying Jovenel Moïse is Haiti’s Juan Guaidó. (For a video recorded in Creole, see tinyurl.com/y34pyh3c/.)Haiti doesn’t have Venezuela’s oil reserves, but it does have a long history of resistance to Washington’s intrigues and attempts to control its destiny. Its dire situation shows what the U.S. has planned for Venezuela. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

All set: TCU volleyball player finds her home in Fort Worth

Collier Facebook Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major. He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. ReddIt Twitter printWhen Lamprini Konstantinidou checked her phone in December 2014, she had a text message from her volleyball coach, Jill Kramer, saying they needed to talk.“When she says that, you’re usually in trouble,” said Konstantinidou, who played setter for West Virginia at the time.As a first-year player, Konstantinidou played in 29 of the Mountaineers’ 30 matches. She led the team with 971 assists.Now after her first season, she found out that she is not in trouble, but rather that Kramer was leaving West Virginia.Kramer, for whom Konstantinidou had left her home of Greece to play volleyball, was leaving for TCU.Lamprini Konstantinidou and TCU Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer talk strategy during a timeout. (Sam Bruton/TCU360)However, before the meeting ended, Kramer told her she was welcome to follow her to Fort Worth.The next move Transferring to TCU meant Konstantinidou would have to sit out a season because of the NCAA rules. Still, she wanted to follow Kramer.Over that summer, she talked to her family about the decision. She said they supported her decision, saying she should “be with people where I feel safe and comfortable.”Konstantinidou said the conversations she can have with Kramer are similar to the ones she can have with her mom.“I feel like we connect really well,” she said. “I can talk to her about things besides volleyball, like school and other things.”Kramer knows adjusting to life in American can be difficult.“My husband is from the Netherlands,” she said. “I know what he went through to come here, so I know what she’s going through.”She added that body language and eye contact are keys to dealing with language barriers.Being at TCULamprini Konstantinidou sets up Natalie Gower for a hit. (Sam Bruton/TCU 360)Konstantinidou said transferring distracted her from being homesick. “My goal was to go where Jill went,” she said. “I wasn’t really thinking of home.”Kramer said she likes the progress Konstantinidou has made after sitting out a year.“She’s now starting to get back to being herself on the court and getting into the flow of being on a team with people who have played together for a year,” Kramer said.Konstantinidou said she benefitted from having a year to adjust.Lamprini Konstantinidou fires up her teammates. (Sam Bruton/TCU 360)“I did everything with the team but traveling and playing,” Konstantinidou said. “I was able to focus on my academic part and go to class everyday, plus I practiced, lifted and conditioned more.”Kramer said she was impressed with Konstantinidou’s work ethic after seeing how she handled herself when she could not step on the court.“She put in a lot of extra time on her own to improve and get better, which was really cool to see,” Kramer said.This season Konstantinidou has played in all 25 matches and all 89 sets. She has had 507 assists.The Frogs’ regular season finale is Wednesday, Nov. 23 in the University Recreation Center against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Ex-head of Serbian radio and TV arrested

The government said he had been “in hiding withthe help of members of the Zemun gang,” an underworld group suspected ofmurdering Djindjic. Milanovic was sentenced to 10 years in prison on 21June last year for not evacuating the RTS building during NATO bombing in1999, thereby allowing 16 employees to be killed. He did not turn up atBelgrade prison to start his jail term.______21.06.2002 – Former head of Serbian radio and TV jailed for 10 yearsReporters Without Borders expressed satisfaction today at the 10-year prison sentence passed on the former head of Serbian radio and TV (RTS), Dragoljub Milanovic, for being responsible for the death of 16 of his employees killed in the 1999 NATO bombing of the station’s offices.Judge Radmila Dragicevic-Bicic said he had “not obeyed the order to evacuate the station’s staff to temporary offices” and that he “knew the building could be a bombing target and that people would be killed.” A legal enquiry was opened last 12 February in Belgrade to find out if Milanovic had been told NATO would bomb the building.Reporters Without Borders hopes NATO will now investigate its own responsibility in the 23 April 1999 air strike during the offensive against Federal Yugoslavia during the Kosovo war.The organisation published a report on 22 November 2000 of its own enquiry entitled “Serbian broadcasting : Chronicle of martyrdom foretold , in which it accused the heads of RTS of deliberately keeping their staff in the dark about the imminent bombing.At the same time, the families of the victims took their case to the European Court of Human Rights and sued NATO’s 17 member-states who are also signatories of the European Convention on Human Rights (Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom). The Court rejected their suit on 19 December last year, saying Federal Yugoslavia was not under the jurisdiction of the sued states and that the Convention did not apply to extra-territorial actions by the 41 Council of Europe member-states that ratified it.

They are now calling on Minister Varadkar to consider a pilot programme to scan children in the area in order to detect early detection of tumours if they exist, to put minds of parents at ease.“We believe the health problems are out of control especially with cancer in young people. Parents have been in contact with our group and they have asked us to ask the Minister to consider a pilot programme,” explained Cappagh Farmers Support Group spokesman Pat Geoghegan.The Cappagh Farmers Support Group also feels the Mid-Western Health Board (MWHB), having found such serious findings in relation to high mortality in children under 14 back in 2001, ignored the matter.“Instead of having the findings investigated immediately, they walked away from the situation. The same applied to the HSE who took over later.”The HSE says it has requested an updated review of cancer incidence rates in Limerick from the National Cancer Registry (NCRI) in response to local concerns that there may have been an increase in recent years.In a statement to the Limerick Post  the HSE explained: “Because of concerns arising originally from animal health in Askeaton and its environs during the 1990s, several reports by different groups (including HSE and University Researchers) used NCRI data to examine human cancer rates in this area.“The NCRI reports on all new cases of malignant cancer registered in Ireland and is the only source of incidence rates across geographical areas in Ireland.“All previous reviews, from 1994 to 2006, showed no significant excess of cancer incidence in the Askeaton area, although significantly elevated rates were noted in parts of Limerick City.”Because of recent new concerns expressed by a community group in the Askeaton/Cappagh area in July 2015, the HSE has requested updated small area analysis from NCRI for the same geographic areas as outlined in previous reports. The NCRI has complete records up until end of 2012.Local GPs in the Cappagh/Askeaton area have also been requested to provide information on any unusual perceived patterns of cancer incidence. The findings of the updated review will be forwarded to the Department of Health as soon as they become available. WhatsApp Advertisementlast_img read more
