The waiters’ military-style proficiency, however, was not what the assembled guests had turned out for. The banquet, held at the Guildhall, was an event offering the City an opportunity to support troops through Help for Heroes and meet Boris, General Sir Mike Jackson, former head of the army, and, er, Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame. The fundraiser was launched last year by Paul Gayler, the head chef at the Lanesborough hotel, with the help of his friends and rivals at London’s top restaurants, including Sheraton Park Lane, the Hilton and Koffmann’s among others. Gayler says they came together because his son was injured in Afghanistan: “He wasn’t too seriously hurt. He was shot in the groin after ten days and can’t go back. It just brought home to me how important it is to support our boys.” So what is the connection to the City? Gayler laughs: “It’s where the money is, of course. Plus City A.M. and others pitched in to make it happen.”Enthusiastic supporters bid a whopping £8,000 for a two-week internship at City A.M in the auction. And in after hours trading, Lawson Muncaster, City A.M.’s managing director, took another £8,000 for the worthy cause in return for a second internship for the auction’s rival bidder.Johnson showed some more love for the City by regaling the audience with stories from classical antiquity: “Boudica was this country’s first and most disastrous banker basher. It took more than a century for Britain’s economy to recover from it.” Johnson’s aide shuffled him away before he could tell City A.M. whether he thought big bonuses – if donated to Help for Heroes – were a good idea. He did say, however, that the City’s “downstream effect was vital for growth.” An effect probably also true of the guests’ stomachs after the fifth course.

Shaw gets his teeth into restaurant trade

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Wasps “I don’t have any regrets in not playing. Obviously I want to support the charities and I try to do that as best I can outside playing. I compete in one tournament a year that is on snow, which arguably should be softer landings and less impact.“I got roped into that by Serge Betsen. It’s in France and it’s called the Six Stations and runs alongside the Six Nations. We go to six different ski stations over six nights and play six-a-side rugby in the snow on a half-sized pitch.“So it’s not hellishly hard work, although the competition tends to mount towards the final, which I’ve only been in once thankfully! I generally try to join the team that’s least likely to get further in the tournament. So I do that but mainly because I adore skiing now so it just gives me an opportunity to ski for a week with a bunch of mates, and raise money for charity at the same time.”Cap No 1: Shaw on his England debut against Italy in 1996, when Phil de Glanville was the captainShaw still calls Toulon home, generally spending long weekends there after doing a three- or four-day week in London. He’s not really one for watching rugby and at the time we spoke to him had yet to visit the Ricoh Arena to watch his old team Wasps.“I probably went to three Toulon matches last year. If I have clients coming out who want to watch a game I’ll entertain them and give them the best weekend they could have.“At Wasps I loved playing rugby but I’m not a good watcher, I get very tense and aggressive. A guy came up to me recently and said, ‘I had the displeasure of sitting next to you at the Lions’ first Test in Australia.’ With four Premiership titles, three European crowns and numerous World Cups and Lions tours on his CV, Shaw could be excused struggling to pin down a favourite memory from his rugby career. But one match stands out.Englishmen abroad: with Jonny Wilkinson after a successful Top 14 semi-final with Toulon (Getty)“It’s funny, when Jonny Wilkinson lifted the cup in his final season, it was the first time you ever saw absolute joy on Jonny’s face. Everyone knows what Jonny’s like and that was the moment when you realised he’s been waiting for this his whole career. Which is extraordinary when you think what he’s achieved.“And I had a very similar experience when we beat Leicester (39-14) at Twickenham in the 2005 Premiership final. It was Neil Back’s last game, Martin Johnson’s last game, and Leicester were out-and-out favourites. The whole story had been told – this is their swansong, this is their last game where they’re going to go out on top. And we’d been thrashed by them at Welford Road just two weeks before (45-10).“It’s weird but all the other finals… I’m not very expressive with my emotions but this was the one time where I was fist-pumping and jumping up and down.”Fondest memory: Wasps’ Premiership triumph of 2005 holds a special place in Shaw’s heart (Getty)Shaw racked up hundreds of matches in the engine room, stretching back to the amateur days when he played for Bristol and, at 17, enjoyed a stint in New Zealand. If you suspect he’d jump at any opportunities for a run-out, think again – he’s put that part of his life to bed.“I played in one game in 2013. We played Australia at the Stoop, to mark the ten-year anniversary of England’s World Cup win,” he explains.“It was a real realisation for me. It was the year I retired, so it wasn’t as if I had bits of me falling off, but at the first kick-off Martin Corry got upended and I just thought, ‘I’ve managed to survive 23 years without too many battle scars, I’ve got four young kids and I want to play sports with them. If I do something on this pitch or any other day, I’d really regret it.“A lot of people say ‘That’s wrong, why don’t you play club rugby, you should be giving something back’, but I think after 23 years I pretty much gave enough. From his giant 6ft 8in frame to his 23-year first-class rugby career, Simon Shaw never does things by halves. When the former England and Lions lock hung up his boots in 2013, he had cemented his reputation as one of the finest forwards of the professional era.Seventy-five Test caps, including two for the Lions in 2009, was only part of the story; he won ten trophies for Wasps during a golden age for the club and later bowed out as a European champion with Toulon.England’s second-oldest international player (38 years 37 days at RWC 2011) and the third-oldest Test Lion (35 years 306 days), Shaw was also the first player to make 200 English Premiership appearances.Rugby World caught up with the now 44-year-old Shaw to see what he’s been up to since retiring as a player…Master mauler: doing what he does best in Barbarians colours v England in 2005 (Getty Images)“After I finished, I lucked on a job straightaway with a hotel group called Karma Resorts. I used to look after their philanthropic arm,” he says. “I was in charge of their acquisitions, so I’d be running around Europe in the main trying to find new opportunities, such as potential conversions like castles.“It was good fun for a while but being my height and weight, and not fitting in beds and plane seats, it became a bit arduous after a while. It was never a joy travelling.“I made the decision to break away from that, for health reasons as much as anything. I had a permanent cold as a result of the air conditioning on flights, sleepless nights and all that sort of stuff, so I thought it wasn’t for me long term. But it gave me a great opportunity to work in a different environment.“At the same time running alongside that, I had an events company and still do called Set Piece Events. We run match-day hospitality, travel packages, dinners and various other things. Coupled with that I had a pub called Stokes & Moncrieff, which was our match-day venue really.“We got rid of it because other opportunities came up. The pub business is very tough and while it worked fabulously well on match days, it was a really tough environment to keep the finger on during the rest of the year. You have to keep plugging away, you have to be on site working tirelessly to generate trade, and as I live in France it’s a pretty tricky proposition.”Looking smart: conducting the European draws with Scott Quinnell in Switzerland in 2014 (Getty)Shaw’s main focus now is a new restaurant opposite Twickenham station that opened in September. Called M Bar & Grill, it allows him to use the skills he acquired during his years as a pub owner.“I moved towards partnering with M Restaurants and Martin Williams in particular, who’s a very shrewd operator in the restaurant market. He looks after the business side and I look after the hospitality side, certainly for this particular venue.“It’s a wonderful location. At first I was sceptical because Twickenham doesn’t really have anything of its like, but the local residents have really embraced it. I think it will turn into a destination restaurant for the wider area because of the quality of the food and the décor.“It’s directly opposite the station so on a match day you walk out of your train, which is how 90% of people get to Twickenham, and you’re there. After the game you can enjoy a cocktail and look out at everyone squeezing themselves silly trying to get a train while you wait for the crowd to subside.“We’ve got the only wagyu beef that’s produced in the UK, that’s exclusive to us. There’s a great many USPs but the thing that stands out is the quality of the food. Mike Reid, the executive chef, is an absolute genius in the kitchen.Peter Pan: Shaw was 38 when he turned out for England at the 2011 World Cup (Getty Images)“As a group we wanted to expand from the two restaurants we have in Victoria and Threadneedle Street; they’re the upper high end of the restaurant industry and this is a scaled-down version. We purposely called it M Bar and Grill so it won’t scare away any punters who feel it might be out of their price range.“It’s a fantastic addition and the plan was not just this venue but to roll out to two or three other localities in the London area. To do that we needed extra funding and we had an extraordinarily successful crowdfunding launch where we managed to raise a lot more than we ever expected to. So those plans are going really well.” Former England and Lions lock Simon Shaw tells Rugby World what he’s been up to since retiring in 2013 – and recalls the one match that had him leaping for joy High point: Simon Shaw on the charge for the 2009 British & Irish Lions in South Africa (Inpho) FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERE ‘What do you mean?’ I said.‘Well, you couldn’t stop moving.

Looking on, from left, are Adriana Cline, St. Luke’s bookkeeper and assistant diocesan treasurer, and the Rev. Karen Calafat, rector of St. Luke’s. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Fort Worth, Texas] When you look out the window of your church and see kids and their parents walking past every morning on their way to neighborhood schools and a school bus stop, what comes to mind?“We figured that there might be needs that we might be able to plug into,” said the Rev. Karen Calafat, rector of St. Luke’s in the Meadow Episcopal Church, of a discussion she and some parishioners had. They had some ideas, but they didn’t know whether those ideas would be helpful. “We were just looking for a way to connect, find out what their needs are and see if there was any way we could partner with them,” Calafat said.The Rev. Karen Calafat, rector of St. Luke’s in the Meadow Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, Texas, chats with a mother during the parish’s weekly Coffee on the Corner. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThat’s when their discovery that middle school students needed college logo T-shirts led to the every Friday morning Coffee on the Corner, a six-week experiment when it began in September and that has continued ever since.Calafat and St. Luke’s member Donnell Guynn recently explained that trajectory one chilly Friday morning between serving coffee, cocoa, sausage biscuits and other treats. At a meeting with counselors at nearby Middlebrook Middle School, parishioners learned that the students needed the shirts for those days when they came to school out of uniform or on special days when they can wear such logo shirts.That finding coincided with the church’s yard sale, so volunteers culled all the college logo T-shirts from the donations and gave them to the middle school. “It just started the conversation,” Calafat said.At the same time, the parish was hosting another kind of dialogue, sponsored by Living Room Conversations, which helps people who disagree find ways to work together and respect each other. This past July, the monthly gathering at St. Luke’s discussed refugee families and the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy. Eight “brave women” were present, Calafat said, and they decided that, while they knew little about refugees, they knew there were immigrants in their neighborhood. The women wanted to find a way to tell their neighbors that St. Luke’s “was not on the bandwagon” with the administration’s policies.Three of the women got together to talk more, but “we realized we didn’t even know what the neighborhood needs,” Calafat said. “We can’t plan some big program because what if it’s not needed? So, we just honed it down to let’s stand on the corner and get to know the neighbors, give them a cup of coffee and just visit.”St. Luke’s has a strategic corner in the neighborhood. The area elementary school is across from the front of the church and the middle school is just down the side street. That side street is also where high school students wait, sometimes in their parents’ vehicles, sometimes on the sidewalk, for buses to take them to various buildings elsewhere in Fort Worth, including the district World Language Institute. The vestry is considering building a bus shelter for those high school students.As the Fridays went by, the volunteers learned a lot. For instance, an early thought about offering English-as-a-second-language classes became a reality, but in reverse. The St. Luke’s women began asking the Spanish-speaking parents the Spanish names of some of the food they were handing out, such as bananas and oranges. The parents would quiz the volunteers in subsequent weeks to see if they remembered their translations.One mother later suggested that the parents and parishioners continue trying to learn each other’s languages, and now the morning chats are becoming increasingly bilingual.On a recent day, some Spanish-speaking students brought a newly arrived Asian friend with them. Then, two Rwandan sisters who walk their younger sister to the elementary school came by. The sisters, who speak five languages, according to Calafat and Guynn, often hang out around Coffee on the Corner before they go to school.A subtle invitation to leave prayer requests stands on the treat cart. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceIt’s not all about coffee and goodies. Prominent on a corner of the rolling treat cart is a brightly colored mug with squares of paper asking, “How can we pray for you?/Cómo podemos orar por usted?” The mug is the invitation; the volunteers never push anyone.Calafat said she takes any filled-in cards that are left on the cart to her desk. “I just kind of keep them in front of me and lift them up in prayer, and when they come back the next week, we ask them how things are going,” she said.One morning a woman visited, saying she had seen Coffee on the Corner but had never stopped. That day, she said, she needed prayers for her marriage. Three or four weeks later, she returned to say she and her husband had a good week. “It’s just about keeping track of people,” Calafat said.Melissa Subjeck, the college and career readiness coach at Meadowbrook Middle School, stops by nearly every Friday when she drops off her daughter for pre-K classes. She likes to greet some of her middle school students as they take their younger siblings to the elementary school.Subjeck praised both the parish’s initial effort to give college T-shirts to the middle school and the coffee stand. “I think this church is pretty remarkable,” she said. “This is one of the highlights of my Fridays. It starts you off in a good mood.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter.last_img read more

National Press Club awardee held for past 18 months in Bahrain

first_imgNews July 30, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 National Press Club awardee held for past 18 months in Bahrain March 17, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders, Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain (ADHRB), Freedom House, Human Rights First, Just Foreign Policy and Project on Middle East Democracy (POMED) call for the release of the internationally-known Bahraini photographer Ahmed Humaidan, who is to receive the National Press Club’s John Aubuchon Press Freedom Award “in absentia” in Washington, DC this evening. He has been held since December 29, 2012 in Bahrain.Humaidan was sentenced on March 26, 2014 to ten years in prison for supposedly participating in an attack on a police station in Sitra on April 8, 2012. A court is due to rule on his appeal on August 25.He told his family and his lawyer that his interrogators subjected him to psychological torture and threatened to kill him. His lawyer has repeatedly requested an independent investigation into his client’s allegations of torture. He has also asked the prison authorities to let his client be examined by a doctor.Founded in 1908, the National Press Club is the world’s leading professional organization for journalists and defends through its Press Freedom Committee the rights of reporters and fights for transparency worldwide.The National Press Club John Aubuchon Press Freedom Award is presented at a gala dinner every year to two journalists – one American and one foreign – who have demonstrated through their work the principles of press freedom and open government.Announcing this year’s winners, NPC president Myron Belkind said: “Ahmed Humaidan is a photojournalist, not a criminal. The authorities in Bahrain need to free him and the other reporters who have been jailed there for the ‘crime’ of doing their jobs.”Twelve news providers are currently detained in Bahrain. Six of them are serving long jail sentences. Two others are being prosecuted. And many more have sought asylum abroad.

The RESI, which polls industry professionals across the country to gain their unique insight about the future of the housing market, compiles data gathered each quarter to create a composite of national and region-specific information from those on the front lines of the industry. In the realm of volume on a national scale, expectation in residential purchases rose from 71.57 to 77.98, or 8.96 percent from Q1 to Q2. Comparatively, that number is 6.25 percent lower than it was last year. Residential refinances also have higher sentiment than they did during Q1, rising from 39 to 45.76, a gain of 17.33 percent. Year-over-year, that number is down 24.06 percent. There are states, however, in which industry professionals confidence in residential purchase transactions volume increased year-over-year. These states include: Louisiana (24.1 percent), Texas (15.6 percent), New York (12.9 percent), Missouri (11.4 percent), and Tennessee (9.7 percent). Independent title agents and real estate professionals did not have quite as much confidence in the forecast for price growth. In Q1, 3.89 percent of those surveyed believed prices would increase in the coming year; and, in Q2, that number only rose to 4.19 percent. Five states in which professionals predicted the highest residential price increases were: Kentucky (8.6 percent), Washington (8.0 percent), Michigan (6.1 percent), Maryland (6.0 percent), and New York (5.8 percent). The RESI also asked industry professionals about their experience working with first time homebuyers. According to those surveyed, 55.3 percent of first time home buyers were between the ages of 26-30, while 31.5 percent were from the ages of 31-35. Aged 36 and older only accounted for a combined 3.7 percent of first time home buyers, compared to 8.8 percent aged 21-25, indicating that a staggering majority are millennials. Of those first time home buyers, 41.4 percent’s motivation for buying a home was financial investment. 25.2 percent cited having kids/starting a family, and 23.3 percent indicated their reason was due to acquiring a new job and/or receiving increased income. Only 10.0 percent said they wanted to buy a home because they got married. According to First American Financial Corporation chief economist Mark Fleming, the obstacles to buying a home haven’t changed much. “In contrast to the perception that Millennials are eschewing homeownership for the ease and flexibility of renting, this quarter’s survey provided more evidence that millennials are increasingly participating in the housing market … [l]ike generations before them, saving for the down payment is the biggest obstacle. When millennials buy a home may be different, but why Millennials buy homes is arguably the same as it’s always been.” Thirty-seven-point-nine percent of people stated that saving the downpayment was the largest obstacle, with overall affordability being the second largest obstacle (30.8 percent), followed by a limited inventory of likable homes (19.0 percent), and limited access to credit (12.3 percent). Methodology: The First American Real Estate Sentiment Index (RESI) measures title agent sentiment on purchase and refinance transaction volume and price changes across multiple property types, as well as title agent sentiment on current industry issues. The RESI is calculated for each question as the sum of the positive responses minus the sum of the negative responses divided by two and times the total number of responses plus 50, resulting in an index that varies from 0 (all negative sentiment) to 50 (neutral sentiment) to 100 (all positive sentiment). A RESI value above 50 indicates increasingly positive sentiment and a RESI value below 50 indicates increasingly negative sentiment. Aggregated purchase and refinance sentiment indices are created by using a property-type, stock-weighted average of each underlying sentiment index.The overall national sentiment index is a loan purpose market share-weighted average of the aggregate purchase and refinance sentiment indices. Aggregated national price expectations are property-type, state stock weighted. Results are only reported when a sufficient number of survey responses are available to produce valid results.

The direction has been made by a single bench of Justice R. Mahadevan in a batch of petitions filed by the Federation of Association of Private Schools, All India Private Educational Institutions Association and the Consortium of Self Financing Professional. The bench ordered that the Petitioners should formulate an appropriate scheme balancing the interests of both the institutions as well as the parents, and place it before the Central Government for final decision. Arguments The Petitioners had approached the High Court highlighting the plight of schools during the lockdown that had been restrained from collecting school fees but were required to pay the salaries of teaching and non-teaching staff apart from other charges, bills, etc. They had particularly challenged Government Order dated April 20, precluding schools from forcible collection of school fees. It was submitted that schools were conducting online classes and students are availing benefit thereof, thus the institutions are entitled to charge tuition fees, to meet out their infrastructural expenses. The Respondents on the other hand had contended that the impugned order, issued under the provisions of the Disaster Management Act, does not prevent the parents from paying fees “voluntarily”. It was further pointed out that the order did not waive of any fees and it was merely an appeal to the schools to not force the students to remit the fees till the situation becomes normal. So far as the institutional expenses of the schools are concerned, the authority submitted that the amount remitted to schools as reimbursement for 25% seats allotted under the RTE Act may be utilized in paying the salaries to the teachers for the next few months. OrderAfter hearing these submissions, the court ordered, “The petitioners herein are directed to formulate an equation / Scheme with respect to collection of fees, not based on the fee structure framed by the Committee, but in instalments for a while, without prejudice to the rights of the parents and children, by way of detailed representations and submit the same to the Government…” It added, “On such representations being submitted, the respondent Government shall consider the same, take a decision and file a report before this Court, on or before 06.07.2020.” The matter is now listed for hearing on July 8.
