A week in the life of a Sale Sharks academy player, Part Two

first_imgTraining day: Bennett sets out bags for Wales trainingTuesday – back session in the gymHe is a busy young man with little time. I am not sure that following a “body building-style” weight training programme, split into body parts, is his best option. He needs to try and get into the gym on maybe two or three occasions a week, for 60-90 minutes at a time. This time should be spent doing basic, whole body weight training sessions that include exercises such as squats, deadlifts and standing press.Wednesday – three different training sessionsThis is a tough day for anybody. In the long term for Charlie to develop something has to give. I can imagine that both his school and academy feel its necessary to participate in the rugby sessions so he needs to look at what is being done in the gym that day. If he had a training plan from the academy that allowed his Tuesday lunchtime session to be his “hard, development session” then this session at Sale Sharks could possibly become a technical session – learning more complex lifts (like Olympic variations) or maybe prehab and rehab for his various hip and hamstring problems. Either option would be physically less taxing and help him become more robust.Shark attack: Charlie Pozniak takes the ball to Worcester (pic taken by Eugene Pozniak)Saturday – post matchWith exams around the corner the demands and stresses placed on Charlie will likely increase. Our body cannot separate out stressors and they all place the same demands on our ability to recover and stay healthy. If his school work and commitments have to increase then he needs to consider where to relax his efforts. He appears to already have little social life so this cannot give and his only option appears to be to lower his rugby commitments during this time. Well drilled: Mark Bennett looks after conditioning at Bristol If Charlie has the ability to be a professional rugby player then quitting piano and water polo may be right actions, but individuals need to think hard and take good impartial advice before the place all their eggs in one basket. Early years in sport should be general in nature; a multitude of sports throughout teenage years produces individuals with well-rounded skills and abilities. Later specialisation also means that overuse injuries and injury risks form repetitive movements or lack of general strength and fitness are less likely to be present.To find out more about best practices for grass-roots rugby, check out the Rugby Innovation Summit TAGS: Sale Sharks center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In this follow-on from Charlie Pozniak’s diary of a typical week as a Manchester Grammar School pupil and a Sale Sharks U18 player, Mark Bennett – head of performance at Bristol – offers some advice on what the young back-five forward can improve upon.Sunday – matchIf Charlie is truly 10kg lighter than others playing in his position then he probably needs to gain this, or at least some of this weight to give him the best chance of becoming a professional rugby player. In order to do this he has to accept that improving his aerobic and game-specific fitness may need to be placed on the back burner for a while.A proverb states: “You cannot ride two horses with one ass.” This can be applied very well to sport and fitness. Trying to develop too many components of fitness at one time is difficult if you have four-hours a day to do so. For a teenager who wishes to be in academia, it is almost impossible. He needs to focus the majority of his physical training in one area (muscle gain) and only maintain other aspects for the time being. When his weight is acceptable then he can focus on aerobic and game-specific endurance.On guard: Bennett coaches a gym session with the Welsh Guard, when he was with OspreysMonday – 6am cycleSleep and nutrition are the basis of recovery from all activity and stress. What is the point in going into school early to cycle if he is short-changing his body and mind of its most important recovery resources? It is clearly shown in the relevant literature that the quantity of testosterone that men produce is positively correlated to the amount and quality of sleep they get. Increasing sleep by an hour or two will have a far more positive impact on his recovery than an early morning cycle at school. Long-term, this is also very likely to have a positive impact on his need to gain muscle mass and general health.The day post-game should be recovery- and rest-based only. His main focus should be on sleep, hydration and nutrition, if there is time in the day after these are satisfied then he may wish to think about an easy bike, cross-train or pool session. If there is too little time in the day, recovery work should be placed aside. Recovery work should mitigate, not produce, stress.last_img read more

Concern that social networks to be targeted as BlackBerry helps British police identify rioters

first_imgNews August 12, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern that social networks to be targeted as BlackBerry helps British police identify rioters RSF_en Organisation to go further February 11, 2021 Find out more United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders is worried about cooperation between Research in Motion (RIM), the Canadian manufacturer of the popular BlackBerry smartphone, and the British authorities in the wake of this week’s rioting in London and other cities in which, according to the authorities, rioters used its messaging service, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), to communicate with each other.BBM uses the Internet rather than the mobile phone network and requires user authentication, which makes it hard for the authorities to intercept messages. To help address this difficulty, RIM has already provided Scotland Yard with information about a number of BlackBerry users, jeopardizing their personal data. “We have engaged with the authorities to assist in any way we can,” RIM announced on Twitter.What consequences will this cooperation have on respect for the privacy of BlackBerry users? If information provided by RIM leads to arrests, questions will be raised about the validity of the evidence and the legality of the way it was acquired. Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about habeas corpus implications.Reporters Without Borders is not minimizing the gravity of the situation in the United Kingdom and the urgency of the need to restore order, but it believes that the provision of personal data to the police sets a disturbing precedent in a western country and could have significant consequences as regards setting an example for others kinds of government.Reporters Without Borders is also shocked by the statements of several politicians. David Lammy, the parliamentary representative for the London district of Tottenham, went so far as to ask BlackBerry to consider suspending its messaging service. This is an astonishing suggestion in a democracy, one with potentially grave consequences. The threats to freedoms are now real.Finally, we urge the British authorities to rule out any possibility of shutting down or drastically restricting the use of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.Reporters Without Borders also takes a very dim view of Prime Minister David Cameron’s suggestion that leading TV broadcasters have a duty to hand over unused footage of the rioting to the police. This would turn them into police auxiliaries and seriously endanger their independence.RIM has been pressured by governments in the past and has yielded to ultimatums from repressive regimes in countries such as United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia for the filtering of websites, access to user data, or the censorship of encrypted services. Reporters Without Borders is alarmed that the United Kingdom is now putting pressure on a telecommunications company.Since 1 May, the United Arab Emirates has blocked use of BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), which is BlackBerry’s most secure system and channels all communications via servers located outside of the country. Saudi Arabia pressured RIM to channel its communications via a server inside the country which the authorities could access after obtaining a court order.Reporters Without Borders urges RIM to think seriously about its social responsibility and to discuss this issue with organizations that defend civil liberties. Reporters Without Borders also urges the British police to think twice before any decision to control or suspend smartphone services and to abandon the practice of seeking personal data without a court order.AFP PHOTO/KI PRICE News Follow the news on United Kingdom Receive email alertscenter_img News March 23, 2021 Find out more February 12, 2021 Find out more Safety of journalists remains active concern in Northern Ireland as BBC Panorama team is threatened Solidarity with Swedish media outlet Realtid ahead of UK defamation case hearing United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information News RSF condemns BBC broadcast ban as example of Chinese government reprisallast_img read more

State Senator Portantino Introduces Bill to Prohibit Minors From Being Prescribed Oxycodone

first_imgGovernment State Senator Portantino Introduces Bill to Prohibit Minors From Being Prescribed Oxycodone Legislation prohibits oxycodone prescriptions for anyone under 21 Published on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 | 12:51 pm faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Wednesday, Senator Anthony J. Portantino (D – La Cañada Flintridge) introduced SB 419, which will prohibit individuals under the age of twenty-one from being prescribed oxycodone.Oxycodone, more commonly known by its brand name OxyContin, has become exceedingly abused, often ending in addiction, tragedy and overdose. There are numerous cases in California and across the country of teenagers becoming addicted to prescribed pain medication. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than 15,000 people died in 2015 due to overdose of opiates. Oxycodone, known as an opioid analgesic is a powerful painkiller prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain and is considered a high-risk drug for dependency.“I don’t want to see another child and family go from the soccer field to drug addiction counseling to tragedy,” commented Portantino.Former President Barack Obama has stated, “More Americans die each year from opioid overdoses than in traffic accidents.” Nationally, stronger guidelines are put into place to prevent and decrease the number of deaths affected by this addictive drug. Today, Senator Portantino is strengthening these guidelines for Californians by introducing SB 419.“The abuse of this drug is a national epidemic and we need to protect our children from being prescribed this highly addictive substance. Lawmakers, regulators and medical professionals have been wrestling with how best to control this synthetic heroin and I’m saying, while we’re looking for solutions, let’s make sure we keep it away from our most vulnerable population, ” added Portantino.Recent news outlets reported oxycodone has become a gateway drug, leading users to the traditional street drug, heroin. Oxycodone contains levels of opiates that can result in physical dependence or an urge for greater euphoria through the use of an illegal drug like heroin. Too often, a young athlete is hospitalized with their first sports injury. With very little life experience to understand pain medication and addiction, they become dependent on oxycodone. Parents are also sent home with a prescription for their children without complete comprehension of the risks associated with this medication.“We should not be giving our young people a gateway drug that can lead to illicit drug abuse such as heroin. What we all need is a time out and pause for the health and well-being of our children,” commented Senator Portantino.

FEATURE ARTICLE: KELLEY COURES ON THE ATTACK AGAIN

first_imgKELLEY COURES FACE BOOK POST of August 29 at 9:18pmSince criticism was sent my way today by a mayoral candidate for my management of DMD lets take it one at a time:Owen Block. We invested $50k federal funds into the rehab from a grant specifically intended for saving urban structures. City councilwoman Connie Robinson approved the investment as the city will make it back in property taxes in 5 years.Facade grants. City Council approved the program and the mayoral candidate posed for a photo with the recipients. Begs the word hypocritical.‘Finding money’. The funds i have had my staff searching for are federal funds left behind by the last mayors administration so we can reuse them to build affordable housing and repair low income persons homes and make improvements to parks in lower income areas. Missy Mosby and Jonathan Weaver have been big helpers to me on that front.This candidate says I am mismanaging things. Our staff located $500k left from pre 2012 which will soon be invested in new urban core housing.Thanks for recognizing the good things my DMD team is doing.in the last year we have corrected more errors, fixed more problems left from previous administrations to the point of 100% compliance with HUD for the first time in a decade. We have worked out assistance to various agencies and re established a close relationship with Habitat for Humanity and a new one, Community One.By criticizing this work she is criticizing her fellow candidates who have been involved and approved everything I have done, every dollar invested and every program created.
