Saxons tour: What can England get out of it and what can they expect from the hosts?

first_imgEddie Jones has stated the Saxons tour to South Africa this summer will not be a traditional second-string trip. So what can England and South Africa get out of it? Support role: Lions No 8 Warren Whitely is rumoured to be in the frame to captain the sideIn South Africa, the Junior Springboks (SA under-20) are the nominated second team; so uncapped Test players featuring against the Saxons will not be bound to playing international rugby for the Springboks, as long as they haven’t already been capped at Under-20 level.England Saxons tour to South Africa:Friday, June 10: SA A v England Saxons – Free State Stadium, BloemfonteinFriday, June 17: SA A v England Saxons – Outeniqua Park, George The last time the England Saxons played a game it was in Cork against the Irish Wolfhounds on 30 January 2015 and they came away with an 18-9 win over a home side that featured Sean O’Brien, Gordon D’Arcy and Keith Earls. The Irish were taking it seriously – it is a pity some other nations cannot take the second-tier games seriously but that is one for another day.For the record, England’s starting team last January was Chris Pennell; Chris Ashton, Elliot Daly, Sam Burgess, Marland Yarde; Henry Slade, Lee Dickson; Matt Mullan, Rob Webber, Henry Thomas, Matt Garvey, James Gaskell, Dave Ewers, Matt Kvesic and Thomas Waldrom. Someone called Maro Itoje came off the bench for Gaskell after 15 minutes and has hardly looked back since.Change in tactThe Saxons are off on another trip this summer to play matches against South Africa A in Bloemfontein and George. They are Saxons by name but according to Eddie Jones they won’t be a typical Saxons team by nature, such as the ones that used to contest the Churchill Cup and won it six times before it was disbanded in 2011 in what seems like an outbreak of apathy.In the frame: Exeter’s Ali Hepher’s name has been linked to the coaching role with the SaxonsThey haven’t got a coach yet, nor any assistant coaches – although Exeter’s Ali Hepher is in the frame for one of the jobs – and have only just finalised the itinerary. Apart from that everything is in place.Jones always says he is in England to coach the national team, and the national team only, but he will have an input into this Saxons coaching and playing staff and he knows what he wants out of the trip.Opportunity knocksJones is going to take 32 or 33 players for the senior tour to Australia and if you were someone ranked third or fourth in your position by the England hierarchy you would expect to have a couple of weeks in SA to make up for missing out on the big one. But according to Jones some of them can book a couple of weeks in Miami now.The Australian is viewing this as a development tour and there will be more than a few names on it who are not on the radar of the casual rugby watcher. Jones wants to find all about the strength in depth of the English game and this is a decent way to do it but bafflingly he does not seem to have the final choices.The chief: Eddie Jones will have his hands full with the England tour to AustraliaJones said: “I have some influence in selection and who’s going to coach the team. But I’m not the person who makes the final decision. When I came to England it was quite clear how the RFU wanted me to play and how I wanted to play. I only want to coach the national team. I don’t want to tell the rest of English rugby how to suck eggs.Jones to remain ‘hands-off’“We’re running an (elite) squad of 33-35 players. In the next two or three years they’re the players we’re going to use. So those Saxons guys are very much development players. I see that as a development tour, not for second tier players. They are some guys who are probably third or fourth in their position who won’t go on that Saxons tour because we need to be looking at guys who are fifth or sixth and whether they can handle that international test match environment. There will be some difficult games down there. I’ve definitely got a role in it but I’m not making that final decision.”That is very un-Jones-like but you can bet your bottom Aussie dollar that he will be looking at the tapes of the two games and will getting in the ear of whoever coaches on the tour to see what the attitude of certain players is.Stars of tomorrowIf you are a number three in your position for England though you might feel a bit miffed if you missed out on the trip but if you are a number four or five or a real up-and-comer, like Northampton’s Harry Mallinder or one of England’s decent Junior World Cup teams of recent vintage that has not made the step up yet – think Chris Cook at Bath, Callum Braley at Gloucester or Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi who might just be getting a call. Alex Waller, another Northampton man, could be in the frame but if the players pick don’t swim on this one, they might be sunk without trace for a long time to come.Worth a look: Bath’s Chris Cook could come under considerationThis is a win-win situation for Jones. He will see some players almost off the radar having a crack at what should be a decent South Africa A team. It might not be a win-win situation for the players though if they don’t front up.THE VIEW FROM SOUTH AFRICA by Craig Ray LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img The announcement of a short England Saxons June tour to South Africa was largely met with indifference in the Republic considering the matches sit alongside Ireland’s visit.The Irish, set to take on the Springboks in a three-Test series – a rare occurrence in the modern era – has the public buzzing. South Africa ‘A’ versus England’s second and third stringers is not causing a stampede at the box office.Time for a new startThe Boks, under new coach Allister Coetzee, and the team itself are in a rebuilding phase following a third place finish at Rugby World Cup 2015. There is massive interest in how they will fare in a season of rebuilding.Juggling balls: New Springbok coach Allister Coetzee may delegate South Africa A-team dutiesThe Saxons visit will no doubt stir interest as the games draw closer, especially as the SA ‘A’ squad will be chosen from those that Coetzee culls from his initial 40-man squad, plus others from the country’s six Super Rugby franchises.“The SA ‘A’ team and the Springboks will work closely together in the build-up to their matches in June,” SA Rugby chief executive Jurie Roux commented: “Under the guidance of the Rugby Department (headed up by the Munster-bound Rassie Erasmus) we will be able to select two very strong squads for these series.”Saxons footing the billInterestingly, the Saxons are footing the entire bill for the tour and when SA Rugby asked their unions for bids to host the English tourists there was minimal response. Eventually Free State and South Western Districts came forward, so the two matches will be played in Bloemfontein and George on June 10 and 17 respectively.It’s likely to be bitterly cold, but dry at high altitude in Bloemfontein on a winter night and correspondingly, the following week the players could be under water if a cold front is passing over the southern Cape. SA Rugby have yet to formally name a coach for the SA ‘A’ team but it is understood that Lions boss Johan Ackermann will take charge of South Africa’s dirt trackers.Springboks who play like New ZealandersAckermann, who was a confrontational Springbok lock in his playing days, is the complete opposite as a coach. His Lions, who at the time of writing were top of the Africa 2 group in Super Rugby and also the defending Currie Cup champions, play like New Zealanders.Speed it up: There is expected to be an influence from the fast-paced LionsRunning into space and offloading in the tackle are skills Ackermann has drilled into his provincial side and are no doubt elements he will try and bring to the ‘A’ team. He’ll have little time to prepare the squad for the Saxons but it could feature many of his Lions squad.Lions in line to face SaxonsLions captain Warren Whiteley will come close to Bok selection, but with Toulon’s Duane Vermeulen arguably the best No 8 in the world, the former is likely to miss out. That would make Whiteley the perfect candidate to lead the ‘A’ team where fellow Lions such as lock Franco Mostert, hooker Malcolm Marx, prop Julian Redelinghuys, centre Howard Mnisi and wings Courtnall Skosan and Ruan Combrinck will almost certainly feature against the Saxons.

Housing incentives paying infrastructure costs

first_img Facebook Twitter Twitter Housing incentives paying infrastructure costs Facebook WhatsApp Previous articleRockHounds_MotterTaylorNext articleEctor County solar farm breaks ground Digital AIM Web Support Pinterestcenter_img Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 TAGS  NEW City of Odessa logo wide USE THIS ONE There has been some debate between city officials whether a proposed housing incentives plan can be paid for through the use of type A sales tax funds, but the city is standing behind its legal staff, who say they can for the purpose of infrastructure. The plan, developed by the Odessa Development Corporation’s Compliance Committee, was discussed heavily by City Council and ODC Board Members this week, with Board Members Ted Tuminowski and Gene Collins questioning their use in this purpose. The basic idea of the plan is to provide financial incentives for new builders who meet certain qualifications, like the price of the home. This would all be coming out of $5 million in type A sales tax funds, set aside by the ODC and City Council. Collins and Tuminowski questioned the use of type A sales tax funds, which are to be used typically for industrial development projects, but Assistant City Attorney Natasha Brooks cited Local Government Code 501.103, which states the money can be used for certain infrastructure improvement projects. “We believe that those type A funds can be used for infrastructure which is necessary to promote or develop expanded business enterprises,” Brooks said. “We’re of the opinion that providing an infrastructure grant to home builders to build workforce housing does in fact promote or develop new or expanded business enterprises.” The question of whether or not housing constitutes a project that can be addressed with type A funds has actually been answered twice by former Attorney General Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton in letters written to the city of Odessa. A project, the letter reads, as defined by the government code, includes land, buildings, equipment, facilities, expenditures, targeted infrastructure and improvements that are for the creation or retention of primary jobs and found by the ODC to be required or suitable for development, retention or expansion of certain facilities. “It is for the board of directors of a development corporation to determine, in the first instance, whether a project or expenditure is authorized under the Development Corporation Act,” Abbott’s letter concludes. Paxton’s letter had the same conclusion that it would be up to the development corporation to determine whether a project is authorized. Mayor David Turner said he had spoken with the Texas Municipal League who said the project would be suitable, and said he was also reaching out to Texas Economic Development Council President/CEO Carlton Schwab for his opinion as well. “To get economic development, we’re limited because we don’t have any people,” Turner said. “If you don’t have enough housing, you can’t expand the economy.” ODC Chairwoman Betsy Triplett-Hurt said not only do they have to have ODC and City Council approval, they also must have specific guidelines on how the money is being used, which is the purpose of the incentive plan. “So therein is the importance of the matrix,” Triplett-Hurt said. “If they said you could build a million-dollar home, then obviously it’s not the intent.” The specific price range for this plan addresses workforce housing, not affordable housing. Workforce housing is aimed at a median family income range from 80% to 120% of the median family income, which in Odessa is $73,900. While that price range in the plan was initially set at $130,000 to 275,000, Turner now said they are looking at lowering that maximum price to $250,000. Tuminowski said 4A funds should just be used for infrastructure projects and the creation of industrial-type jobs, as opposed to retail or restaurant jobs. “They actually kind of took a little liberty in broadening that term to infrastructure,” he said. “I guess there is some grayishness there that you could kind of read between the lines. That’s what attorneys are good at, I guess, is trying to find those gray areas.” Odessa Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Director Wes Burnett said he thought everyone was right in the situation, but said according to the city’s legal staff if the ODC and City Council decided it was an economic development project, they could spend economic development funds on that project. He also told council members during the meeting if they didn’t like how the board was voting, they could get new board members. Collins didn’t think Burnett was trying to make a point of getting rid of him and Tuminowski, he was just making a point of the authority the ODC board had, and said Burnett asked to have lunch with him and didn’t seem angry at him. “I think he was trying to clarify some of the blurred lines,” Collins said. ODC will vote on the housing incentives plan at their July 11 meeting, after which it is expected to be voted on by the City Council at their July 23 meeting. WhatsApp Local Newslast_img read more

White Light Motorcade: Thank you, Goodnight

first_imgWhile it’s one thing to have influences in the music industry, it is quite another to wear them as proudly as White Light Motorcade do. The four wiry, leather-clad New Yorkers aim for a glorious clash of sound between vintage punk (MC5, The Stooges) and the melodic fireworks of 90s Britpop. It sounds like a bad idea and, as you’d expect, it doesn’t work. The album results in something reminiscent of Jet’s Get Born. Several of the songs have good hooks and winning melodies, but they are delivered in a way devoid of any spark of originality. This is a problem not just for White Light Motorcade, but also for the current wave of ‘rock and roll’ acts. Music is rarely totally original, but if you want to see a tribute act go to your local pub. White Light Motorcade could learn something from such advice. Coupled with this, the album’s tracks have been glossed, buffed and produced to with an inch of it’s life. ‘Open Your Eyes’ uses trademark Noel Gallagher chord changes to no effect whatsoever and ‘Useless’, the band’s attempt at a lighters-in-theair anthem, is let down by frontman Harley Dinardo’s weak vocals. Things look up briefly during the catchy thrash of ‘It’s Happening’, but Ash would probably still reject it as sub-standard. NME called White Light Motorcade “the saviours of rock.” I can’t agree. The kindest thing to be said for Thank You, Goodnight is that it makes all the right noises, nonetheless it feels completely hollow.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img read more

Lightning In A Bottle 2019 Electrifies Festival-Goers At Buena Vista Aquatic Recreational Area [Review]

first_imgIf you build it, they will come.That’s not just the substance of Ray’s hallucinations in Field of Dreams. It might as easily apply to Lightning in a Bottle Music and Art Festival, though the “they” to which this gathering appealed did a lot more than just come to California’s Central Valley. The crowds that assembled for the latest edition to Lightning in a Bottle (LIB) gave the festival its flavor and color while proving that its latest site could serve as something above a passing fancy.LIB is an event of many hallmarks, but stability hasn’t been one of them. The 2019 edition brought LIB to its sixth different venue in the last 15 years. But that apparently inherent nomadic quality has opened up opportunities for the event to grow and improve in different ways through the years—just as it did in 2019.Though the late change in venue and dates kept attendance under 20,000 people, the Buena Vista Aquatic Recreational Area served as a fitting landing spot for those whose calendars and modes of transport allowed them to spend Mother’s Day Weekend in Bakersfield.Gone were the arduous treks across undulating hills from the campgrounds through the festival. Instead, navigating from place to place required little more than a leisurely stroll along (mostly) flat surfaces next to a lake filled with giant unicorn flotillas, festival-goers cooling off amid the daytime heat and, at night, fire dancers entertaining passersby on the beach.More importantly, the new venue comfortably accommodated everything that makes LIB, in all its seemingly annual transience, a fixture of West Coast festival culture.Yoga? Check.Ritual prayer? Check.Killa Dillas? Check.Talks about feminism through clean water, the science of sound, plant medicine, and the morality of combating climate change? Checks all around.Film screenings, long and short? Check and check.Food workshops on granola, taco salad, flowers and fermentation? Check, check, check and check.More Dillas? You already know.Drum circles? Dream hacking? DJing tutorials? Basket weaving? Knife sharpening? Bookbinding? Body painting? Japanese marbling? Crochet? If you can imagine it, you can probably do it at LIB.And if none of that appealed to you, there was always plenty of music to keep the party going. By and large, electronic dance music dominated at LIB, as it typically does—with Flying Lotus adding in an element of psychedelic art with his 3D backdrop and Disclosure paring down for a DJ set. But while feet-bewitching DJs like Opuio, CharlestheFirst, The Polish Ambassador, Jan Blomqvist, Axel Thesleff, Luttrell, Lane 8, and Damian Lazarus, there was still ample room throughout the festival for acts across the sonic spectrum.There were those who mixed EDM with a bit of live instrumentation, like Monolink’s surprise set on Thursday night, Gramatik’s highlight of Friday night, and BIG GIGANTIC’s gaggle of bangers on Saturday night. There were spectacular instrumental outfits, from the Fungineers and Frameworks to the unshakable grooves of Khruangbin. There were indie-oriented acts like slenderbodies and Toro y Moi, along with captivating vocalists like ELOHIM, Santigold, and FKJ, who guested during Masego’s set. And for those feeling a mix of Latin rhythms and hip-hop vibes, there was Ozomatli’s party-starter on Sunday.The most important element of all, though, was the audience. That’s not to blow smoke up anyone’s alley, nor is it to state matter-of-factly that there would be no LIB without people to pay for tickets, schlep their camping gear to farm country and dance their way through up to five days of activities. Rather, it’s to point out LIB’s greatest strength: the opportunity it presents for people watching. Colorful hats and headgear weren’t just abundant in their sheer variety and visual stimulation—they were included on the festival’s official “Pro Packing List.”Totems of all shapes and sizes—including bubble-blowing lamps, Pickle Ricks, Owen Wilsons and wacky waving inflatable arm-flailing tube men in miniature—stole the show. Colorful party buses, palatial tents and meme-stamped flags filled the campgrounds (and guided some weary revelers home). And when night gave way to day and the waters warmed, the lake swarmed with people swimming solo from shore to shore, canoeing through the afternoon, and lounging on rafts as large as living rooms.Indeed, for LIB to live up to its reputation as a lifestyle festival requires a panoply of people to do the living in every which way. To that end, LIB’s fans delivered (and then some) with a communal experience that was unified by a diversity of activity—one that celebrated the essence of humanity, with all its virtues and vices.Now that this singular spirit has proved that it can not only survive, but thrive in its latest location, Lightning In A Bottle would do well to keep building its fantasy camp for daydreaming adults in the heartland of California—and many more festival lovers would do even better to come.last_img read more
