Waratahs forward Jacques Potgieter signed by the Sharks

first_imgWednesday May 6, 2015 Waratahs forward Jacques Potgieter signed by the Sharks Former Springboks and Bulls loose-forward Jacques Potgieter, currently with the Waratahs in Sydney, has been signed by the Durban based Sharks on a two-year contract, it was announced today. Hard running Potgieter will return to where he played junior rugby. Over the last few years Potgieter has made steady progress up the ranks with his sheer physical presence and explosiveness, which resulted in a Springbok call-up in 2012.A move to Australia followed though, and success in 2014, when he was instrumental in the Waratahs victorious Super Rugby campaign.Confirming his signing, The Sharks CEO John Smit said:  “Jacques is a great acquisition for the Cell C Sharks. He has been hugely impressive for the Waratahs and will add significant value and depth to our loose trio. We look forward to welcoming him back to Durban.”Jacques Potgieter added: “I am really looking forward to joining the Cell C Sharks. This is the place where I played all my junior rugby and where everything started for me.“I have great memories of my time in Durban and I am keen to contribute to the team’s ambitions in 2016.”He will officially join the Sharks in early next year for the 2016 Super Rugby tournament.He was in the headlines for more controversial reasons recently however, when he was fined $20,000 ($10,000 suspended) for making homophobic comments against the Brumbies during a Super Rugby match.“I’m very sorry for any offence caused by what I said on the field during a heated encounter. It was an offhand remark made without thought for the hurt it could cause to those around me,” he said.Here is a look at what he is capable of with ball in hand, as he scored a great 50m try against the Reds when playing for the Bulls back in Pretoria in 2012.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , Sharks Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Recruiters muscle in on acquisition activity

first_imgRecruitment consultancies are embarking on mergers and acquisitions in a bidto compete for business at the top of the corporate pyramid. One of the drivers for the current buoyant level of activity in this marketis the expansion of services offered for human capital management (HCM), asproviders strive to forge lasting relationships at board level. With HRdepartments continuing to use outsourcing as a way of reducing administrationcosts, HCM firms are using acquisitions to add value as well as scale. M&A activity within the HCM sector has exceeded $11bn (£7.18bn) since1999, with more than 270 deals completed. This year has seen less activity, butthere have still been 29 deals worth $490m since January. The strategic imperative for providers is clear: large-scale corporaterestructuring across the globe has cemented the trend towards companies hiringincreasing numbers of temporary staff. The ultimate aim of an outsourcingcompany, is to develop board relationships in order to win the most valuablebusiness process outsourcing contracts, of which pure recruitment is only oneelement. Recruitment consultants are moving beyond pure recruitment and are seekingto manage the retention, development and management of a firm’s HR. Examples of recruitment consultancies expanding their service offeringthrough deal- making, include Adecco’s purchase of Job Pilot, Manpower’s launchof Empower, and the acquisition by Capita RAS of a spread of recruitment,training and HR outsourcing businesses. The natural entrepreneurship of smaller recruitment firms is also generatingdeals, as existing management teams buy businesses from their owners. In Marchand April, both Right4staff and Technology Teaching systems secured privateequity backing for management buyouts. Another driver of mergers and acquisitions activity in the sector relates toHR contracts coming from central government for key public sector services. The healthcare sector has entered into three to five year contracts withsuppliers creating a closed list of providers. This particular barrier to entryhas been one of the reasons why companies such as Nestor have purchasedhealthcare recruitment providers with ongoing contracts. As more deals are sealed in the sector, HR executives will be able to buymore services from a single, trusted source. But recruitment consultants mustensure they can deliver at the very top of the pyramid, where successfulapplicants only need apply. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

HMS Diamond wraps up two-month deployment

first_img View post tag: Type 45 Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyer HMS Diamond is on her way home after spending two months on operations in the Atlantic and the Baltic Sea.The destroyer has been activated throughout the traditionally busy summer season, as she monitored Russian naval activity twice, visited four ports and helped train warfare officers and RAF air crew.The destroyer also represented the fleet in front of a million people at Bournemouth Air Festival in addition to joining NATO ships in the Baltic and visiting Poland.The Portsmouth-based warship’s summer began in Ringaskiddy, near Cork where visitors included the Irish Naval College, Britain’s ambassador to Ireland Robin Barnett and deputy prime minister Simon Coveney.Once back in the UK, Diamond picked up principle warfare officer trainees for a fortnight of action testing the students’ command of air defense, gunnery, flying, anti-submarine and surface warfare exercises, reaching its climax in the North Sea with RAF Typhoon fighters switching between attacking Diamond or being controlled by her.A lot of the destroyer’s time has been spent as one of the Royal Navy’s high readiness escort units. She was activated to monitor Russian destroyer Severomorsk and cruiser Marshal Ustinov past the UK, then became the first ship in her class to take on fuel from one of the new Tide-class tankers, RFA Tidespring.“I’m really proud of my ship’s company and all that they have achieved – over the past month or so they have shown their flexibility, adaptability and complete professionalism,” said Commander Ben Keith, Diamond’s commanding officer.HMS Diamond will arrive at HMNB Portsmouth this week.

Beach Patrols Ready for Season, Whenever it Happens

first_imgThe 2019 Ocean City Beach Patrol rookie class poses after last year’s tryouts. There will be a 2020 rookie class selected, Beach Patrol Chief Mark Jamieson said, despite unanswered questions about this year’s traditional tourism season. By TIM KELLYLooking for a little certainty in uncertain times? Look no further than the Ocean City and Sea Isle Beach Patrols.The first line of defense in beach safety and symbol of all things summer, the lifeguards in both resort towns are proceeding according to the “old normal” from before the COVID-19 pandemic. That mean both patrols will be primed and ready for action if beaches open for Memorial Day.“It makes a lot more sense to have all the normal preparations done,” said longtime Sea Isle Beach Patrol Chief Renny Steele. “We can always adjust to postponed or canceled openings and events. It’s a lot harder to try to catch up.”Both Steele and OCBP Chief Mark Jamieson said their guard rosters will be in place, and all systems are go as of now. This includes the annual tryouts for the 2020 class of first-time members, or “rookies.”“We’re preparing to open on schedule, and this includes the annual rookie tryouts set for June 13-14,” said Jamieson. “If it is deemed unsafe by the Department of Health or if other restrictions are in place, we’ll adjust our schedule accordingly.”Sea Isle’s rookie tryouts will also take place on June 13-14, Steele said.Such consistency flies in the face of mixed signals regarding beach openings around the region and elsewhere. Atlantic City, for example, never closed its beaches or Boardwalk. In Cape May County, some beaches will be open this weekend, with social distancing and other restrictions in Wildwood, Stone Harbor and Avalon.The days of two lifeguards to a stand in Sea Isle City, such as in this 2018 photo of Tim Rafter and Katelin Cordero, could be coming to an end for the foreseeable future due to social distancing procedures.Wildwood and North Wildwood beaches are opening for activities such as running, walking and fishing, according to published reports. Other beach towns such as Avalon and Stone Harbor will be open only open for fitness and athletics, but with social distancing. No lounging on beach chairs or blankets was permitted as of Wednesday.Conversely, Ocean City and Sea Isle beaches were still officially closed on Wednesday, as were the Ocean City Boardwalk and the Promenade in Sea Isle.Both towns and other South Jersey resorts were closely watching Maryland’s Ocean City, which declared its beaches open starting this weekend, as well as its Boardwalk and businesses, with no social distancing restrictions. If that move results in a spike of new COVID-19 cases, it could force authorities here to rethink or possibly shelve reopening plans.“We’ve considered every ‘what if’ we can think of, which can be put into place if necessary,” said Steele. “But regardless of those, it still comes back to being ready for (an earlier than anticipated) opening. We don’t want to make any decisions to postpone or cancel anything until we have to.”The lifeguard bosses said further adjustments would be made if beaches are open under a “new normal” of social distancing. That would mean only one guard to a stand, where two are the norm now, and possibly new duties to enforce distancing and other mitigation, Steele said.It is a particularly challenging balancing act statewide and for local governments in Cape May County, which has experienced among the lowest number of coronavirus cases and deaths, and has a largely tourism-based economy. At the same time, the county also has a large number of older residents, the most vulnerable age demographic.Ocean City Beach Patrol Chief Mark Jamieson said plans for the 2020 summer season are progressing as normally as possible, despite the coronavirus outbreak.The governments of both municipalities have acknowledged they are thankful for some of the planned easing of coronavirus-related restrictions. However, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Wednesday he was ordering New Jersey’s public health emergency declaration extended 30 days, or until well into June.Although the governor’s extension of the state of emergency has no direct impact on current shutdown or social distancing orders, local officials have acknowledged the traditional opening of the season on Memorial Day weekend of May 22-25 will be anything but traditional.At present, it is presumed some early summer events such as Skimmer Weekend in Sea Isle and the Business Persons Plunge and “unlocking” of the ocean in Ocean City won’t be taking place this year.Despite this, both local beach patrols will be ready. Jamieson and Steele said routine preparations, such as getting vehicle fleets tuned up, making repairs to lifeguard stands, ordering needed uniforms and other equipment, have taken place or are in the works on a normal schedule. That goes for testing for this year’s rookie class, and for lifeguard applications, Jamieson said.“At this point in the year, it is the normal number of responses,” he said. “We usually see the application number grow after Memorial Day.”In Sea Isle, the number of applications to join the Beach Patrol and to participate in the Island Run “are down” thus far, Steele said.“People apparently want to see if the shutdown is going to affect their plans before they commit,” he noted.All preparations were still in place. “The (Island Run) T-shirts have been designed, but we’re holding off on having them printed,” Steele said, explaining to do so would risk being stuck with up to 1,400 shirts emblazoned with a 2020 date and reference to the event’s 50th anniversary year.“The same goes for sunscreen, which we supply for our guards,” Steele said. “We ordered sunscreen that doesn’t expire even if it’s not used until next summer.”Sea Isle City Beach Patrol Chief Renny Steele (left) is joined by former Captains Bill Gallagher (center) and Mike McHale in front of a Beach Patrol exhibit at the Sea Isle City Historical Museum.last_img read more

Computer Scientist Who Pioneered ‘Copy’ And ‘Paste’ Has Died

first_imgLarry Tesler, computer scientist behind cut, copy and paste. Photo via: Computer History Museum / YouTubeNEW YORK — Larry Tesler, the Silicon Valley pioneer who created the now-ubiquitous computer concepts such as “cut,” “copy” and “paste,” has died. He was 74.He made using computers easier for generations as a proponent and pioneer of what he called “modeless editing.” That meant a user wouldn’t have to use a keyboard to switch between modes to write and edit, for example.“The inventor of cut/copy & paste, find & replace, and more was former Xerox researcher Larry Tesler. Your workday is easier thanks to his revolutionary ideas,” Xerox said in a tweet Wednesday.Tesler was born in New York and attended Stanford University, where he received a degree in mathematics in 1965. In 1973, he joined Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, a division of the copier company that worked on creating computer products. There, he pioneered concepts that helped make computers more user-friendly. That included such concepts as moving text through cut and paste and inserting text by clicking on a section and just typing.He continued that work when he joined Apple in 1980. At Apple, he worked on a variety of products including the Lisa computer, the Newton personal digital assistant and the Macintosh.After leaving Apple in 1997 he co-founded an education software company and held executive positions at Amazon, Yahoo and the genetics-testing service 23andMe before turning to independent consulting.In 2012, Tesler told the BBC that he enjoyed working with younger people.“There’s a very strong element of excitement, of being able to share what you’ve learned with the next generation,” he said.
