Michael Cheika says he’s not satisfied with how things ended with the Wallabies

first_imgThursday Mar 26, 2020 Michael Cheika says he’s not satisfied with how things ended with the Wallabies Former Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has opened up on his time with the Wallabies, saying that he was disappointed not to reach all of his goals. He has also said that the ARU should have been better prepared with a TV deal before this year. ADVERTISEMENTCheika, now having switched over to Rugby League and helping out with the Roosters, had an in-depth chat with Fox League Live on Foxtel about, amongst other things, his five years in charge of the Wallabies.The coach, who took his team to the 2019 Rugby World Cup quarter final and 2015 Rugby World Cup final, said that he was honoured to coach the Wallabies and is proud of his achievements given the difficult circumstances he often had to face, with injuries and inexperienced players.“In coaching, you have to be a professional at turning negatives into positives. That was something I really loved doing with those lads, because they responded a lot. I think a lot of them played above their potential,” he said.WATCH: Michael Cheika on when he played against the All Blacks in 1988 He says he’s not satisfied with all the results though and would have loved to have won a World Cup and Bledisloe Cup.Cheika also touched on how the Australian Rugby Union should have been better prepared with a TV rights deal before this year. But with the right leadership, he believes they can still make it work.You can watch the full chat here, courtesy of Foxtel.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

The third court, the “Water court” faces the Bay, and contains the pool and spa and was designed to create an exterior environment that encouraged full access and enjoyment of the Bay and its long vistas and sunsets. The second canopy to shield a court is the concrete “parasol” that extends above the living room volume. Save this picture!plan 01It is positioned so as to offer solar and rain protection. By being lifted above the roof, it allows the Bay breezes to flow through the site, keeping both the Water Court and Rain Court cool.

El futuro es ya

first_imgNo hace mucho tiempo, los expertos políticos y gurús económicos cuyos análisis tienen mucho espacio en los medios corporativos, predecían que la revolución de alta tecnología que entonces comenzaba a acelerarse elevaría a las/os trabajadores industriales en este país a la “clase media”, capaz de ganar más dinero al dejar atrás los trabajos sucios y peligrosos reemplazados por la automatización.Esta visión optimista del futuro para la clase trabajadora fue desacreditada por Sam Marcy, el entonces presidente del Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero, en su libro, “High Tech, Low Pay: Un análisis marxista del carácter cambiante de la clase trabajadora”, en 1986. El análisis de Marcy luego fue actualizado por Fred Goldstein en dos libros más, “Capitalismo de bajos salarios” (2009) y “Capitalismo en un callejón sin salida” (2012). (Para obtener más información sobre estos libros, visite workers.org y lowwagecapitalism.com).Los hechos y las cifras económicas que ahora tienen a los economistas burgueses rascándose la cabeza confirman por completo lo que estos revolucionarios marxistas explicaron desde hace más de tres décadas. La revolución de la alta tecnología eleva la promesa de un mundo futuro de abundancia y facilidad, pero esa vida puede ser alcanzada por las masas solo si el capitalismo es abolido.Hay que ver lo que realmente sucedió. Sí, muchos de los trabajos que solían existir en la manufactura, minería, ventas minoristas, comunicaciones, trabajos de oficina, transporte, agricultura y otros, son ahora obsoletos. Los dueños de los medios de producción se han desprendido de la mano de obra humana a un ritmo prodigioso en la búsqueda de ganancias cada vez mayores. Los millonarios se han convertido en multimillonarios en el proceso. Pero, ¿y las/os trabajadores?Como sugiere el título del libro de Marcy, la alta tecnología ha descalificado o eliminado por completo millones de empleos. El resultado es salarios más bajos y una existencia precaria para más y más trabajadoras/es.Junto con la idea de que todas/os se estaban convirtiendo en clase media, surgió la idea de que las/os trabajadores y los patronos se necesitan mutuamente y deberían colaborar para un futuro mejor. Los patronos ciertamente necesitan trabajadoras/es – hasta que estén listos para reemplazarlos con una nueva máquina o un mejor programa de computadora. No habría ganancias sin las/os trabajadores, porque las ganancias provienen del valor que las/os trabajadores producen por encima de lo que reciben en compensación por su trabajo (Otro concepto marxista que los patronos niegan).Pero, ¿las/os trabajadores necesitan jefes?Cada vez más las/os trabajadores jóvenes dicen que no. Están comenzando a vislumbrar un mundo socialista donde los patronos, no las/os trabajadores, quedarán obsoletos.Mientras tanto, las condiciones para las/os trabajadores se vuelven cada vez más desesperadas ya que los trabajos a tiempo parcial, de bajos salarios y sin beneficios reemplazan a los empleos permanentes de tiempo completo con sueldos defendidos por los sindicatos.Los patronos son nuestros enemigos, no nuestros socios. Trump es el epítome del multimillonario “benévolo” que promete la luna mientras nos despoja de todo.Solo hay una respuesta a esto, y no es la colaboración de clases. Es la lucha de clases. No es una idea nueva, sino una que ha resistido la prueba del tiempo y es lo que se necesita ahora. Deje que las conmovedoras huelgas de las/os maestros de esta primavera den el ejemplo de lo que es necesario y posible.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Japan mulls turning helicopter destroyer into F-35B carrier

first_img View post tag: Izumo-class Share this article View post tag: F-35B Japan is considering turning one of its helicopter destroyers into a “multi-purpose aircraft carrier” as part of a review of the country’s National Defense Program Guidelines, Japan’s defense minister Takeshi Iwaya has confirmed.Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, the defense minister said the country is evaluating plans to convert one of its two Izumo-class helicopter destroyers into platforms capable of accommodating fighter jets.While the defense minister did not confirm, the plan would likely include F-35B short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) stealth jets.Japan already has a number of F-35A (the conventional takeoff and landing variant) on order and is preparing to procure another 100 F-35 jets. According to a Nikkei report which cited anonymous sources, the order would include both short take-off and conventional take-off variants.The Japan Maritime Self Defense Forces’ two Izumo-class helicopter destroyers measure 248 meters in length and currently operate 9 helicopters. Should they be converted for the operation of F-35B jets, the ships would have to receive a special thermion coating which would protect the flight deck from the temperatures created by F-35B thrusters.The US Navy is currently in the process of upgrading its 258-meter Wasp-class amphibious assault ships for F-35B operations. An F-35B jet flying from the flight deck of amphibious assault ship USS Essex recently became the first F-35B ever to conduct a combat strike as it provided ground clearance operations in Afghanistan.Japan would receive an aircraft carrier for the first time the since World War II should the defense ministry go ahead with plans of converting one of its helicopter destroyers.center_img Photo: JMSDF file photo of helicopter destroyer JS Izumo View post tag: JMSDFlast_img read more

Why Jazz Is The Most Stimulating Genre of Music, According To Science

first_imgThe brain is a highly organized and complex organ that functions as the coordinating center of all sensation, intellectual and nervous activity. Each area of the brain directly corresponds to a very specific function (emotions, movement, visual processing, memory, etc.), and can be stimulated in various scenarios based upon these trigger activities. This is why people use music to navigate their existing mood, activity, or energy level.Just as you should dress for the job you want to have, you should listen to the mindset that you seek. If it is a creatively-driven, focused mentality that you are after, then Dr. William Klemm, of Psychology Today, says you should listen to jazz music, as it comes with a multitude of different cognitive benefits that enrich your mind.Scientists Have Discovered The Area Of The Brain That Responds To MusicFor one, jazz relieves stress. Music has a direct effect on our hormones, which is why the typical music enthusiast relies on music to lead the motions of their day. With the heart synced to the rhythms pulsating through our ear drums, it is no wonder we become sad when listening to slower, more depressing songs; or the opposite, as we become overjoyed by feelings of excitement and energy when listening to more upbeat, positively stimulating songs. This is because our hearts and our brains are intrinsically connected.Klemm adds that stress is the “arch-enemy of memory ability,” and so to reduce stress levels while engaging in highly concentrated activities, like studying, is extremely powerful to the end result. Therefore, subjects are much more likely to retain the information in the environment of jazz’s soothing agents.How Music Can Be Used To Influence Different Mood GoalsSecondly, jazz stimulates the mind. As your brain receives messages from the environment, it releases chemicals to react accordingly. Following the influence of jazz, your brain tends to mimic the rhythmically improvisational patterns, which might pop and jerk at times in acute measures. The activity in the music therefore influences increased hyperactive neural stimulation.It is the back-and-forth playing, the communication of instruments, that activates areas of the brain correlated with the syntax of language. Music is of course the universal language, but even your brain picks up on what jazz is putting down.Why Some People Get ‘Skin-Gasms’ While Listening To MusicFurthermore, jazz boosts creativity. With decreased stress levels and increased patterns of language, the brain is more susceptible to using its imagination to complete logical thought processing. According to researcher Beth Belle Cooper, ambient noise improves creativity; she continues to say that the type of music, and the volume at which you listen to it, is also critical to improving creativity. She states, “moderate noise levels increase processing difficulty, which promotes abstract processing, leading to higher creativity.” So, by forcing our brains to work a little harder than normal, we can lead our minds to think even more outside the box. This expanded attention welcomes creativity beyond normal standards.So the next time you desire concentration, focus, and acuity, you might benefit from the improvisationally-driven, directionally-unexpected, soothing elements of jazz music.last_img read more
