Ben Te’o uncovered: The life and times of the England centre

first_img TAGS: Worcester Warriors Ben Te’o uncovered: The life and times of the England centreBen Te’o is back in white with England for this year’s Six Nations, bringing with him the experiences of playing for the British & Irish Lions in New Zealand over June and July. The former NRL star made headlines when he returned to face Italy in the Six Nations this month, having taken himself back to Australia to recover from injury and prepare for a return to the Test stage.Rugby World caught up with Te’o during the summer for an article in our July 2017 issue. He told us about his cosmopolitan life…My parents met in Auckland, at high school. Dad (Tili) is Samoan and Mum (Linda) is English. Dad is retired now but did different jobs – policeman, traffic officer, lawyer. I have five siblings.I played union for the majority of my childhood. I played two years of league at seven and eight, then was hooked on it from age 16 upwards. In New Zealand, people chop and change between league and union, it’s not a big deal. It’s all just footie.Ready to rock: Te’o arrives in his birthplace Auckland for the start of the Lions tour (Getty Images)I played for Silverdale RFC in North Harbour. Luke McAlister was the guy when I was growing up who we looked up to. He was only a little bit older than me but was very talented. His dad coached the top team and Luke played for them while still at high school. I went to Orewa College and Hibiscus Intermediate, both in North Auckland.Jonah Lomu was everyone’s hero. He was the Michael Jordan (of rugby). Christian Cullen and Frank Bunce were other guys that most kids wanted to be like. I started as a 15 but was a 13 for the majority of my youth. I also did a stint in the forwards.At 17 I got a scholarship to Australia. I went to Keebra Park High School, a famous rugby league school on the Gold Coast. Loads of players have come through there. They helped me get a professional contract.My league grounding helps my union. There’s the physical aspect from the tackling, particularly the high-up wrestling that is starting to come into union. I’ve had ten years of wrestling in league. And beating a defender – I’ve done a lot of work on footwork and leg drive. Rugby league is so physically demanding, it gives you a good grounding.Power ranger: Te’o shows his muscle in the Lions’ win over Crusaders in ChristchurchI switched to union because I wanted to see how I would go. I didn’t want to re-sign with league and keep going for three or four years and then say, ‘I wonder if I’d have been a good union player’.I chatted to Michael Cheika about it. He was the Waratahs coach and friends with my agent. I wanted to see what he thought in terms of my body shape, how I play the game, would I be suited to it? I was keen on getting out of Australia, experiencing something different as well as taking on union again. He said, ‘Look, I used to coach this team in Dublin called Leinster, they’re a great team’. I didn’t know anything about Leinster but he told me they would teach me the game.Sam Burgess’s circumstances were different to mine. I was quite happy to disappear and go play rugby. I went to Leinster on a two-year deal but if I’d been no good then I’d have left, I’d have come straight back to league. I wasn’t coming over with any (international) ambition, all I wanted to do was play rugby union.Hard graft: squad training in Wales last monthI moved to England as I’d done my time at Leinster. I felt it was time to move on. I’d heard a lot about the (English) Premiership so I was keen to have a go at that, or go back to Australia to play Super Rugby. Eddie Jones said I’d get an opportunity to impress (for England) if I came to the Premiership.I’ve had a good learning year. I made my Test debut, played in the autumn series and in the Six Nations. I got to meet and mingle with all the guys and learn off them. It’s been perfect.The Italy game was frustrating. We got the win but would I like the game to have been different? Yes. There are a lot of guys in that England team who have put in a lot of work on the training park and weren’t getting the same minutes, so a lot of the time we were helping the starters prepare and then we get our opportunity and the game turns out like that (affected by Italy’s no-ruck tactic). So it was unfortunate but it’s just the way it was. You’ve got to work hard and hopefully you get another opportunity. British & Irish Lions: L Williams; A Watson, J Davies, B Te’o, E Daly; O Farrell, C Murray; M Vunipola, J George, T Furlong, AW Jones, G Kruis, P O’Mahony (capt), S O’Brien, T Faletau.Replacements: 16 K Owens, 17 J McGrath, 18 K Sinckler, 19 M Itoje, 20 S Warburton, 21 R Webb, 22 J Sexton, 23 L Halfpenny. FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREI can’t wait to zero in on the All Blacks. I’d like to really gel with the squad, learn from them and the coaches. And try to learn the All Blacks inside out because England are going to have to play them eventually.I’m no Twitter fan. There’s a parody account (@boringben13) done by some loser at home probably, someone with not much of a life.Eddie Jones is always watching. He’s everywhere. He could be up in that stand, seriously he could be up in that stand (he points) with a fake nose and fake moustache and glasses, watching to see if I’m training well. You never know. He’ll be watching the Lions games. You’ve got to play well and then come back to club land and play well or you won’t be in the England team in November.Watching: With Eddie Jones during the Six NationsNew Zealand: B Smith; I Dagg, R Crotty, SB Williams, R Ioane; B Barrett, A Smith; J Moody, C Taylor, O Franks, B Retallick, S Whitelock, J Kaino, S Cane, K Read (capt).Replacements: 16 N Harris, 17 W Crockett, 18 C Faumuina, 19 S Barrett, 20 A Savea, 21 TJ Perenara, 22 A Cruden/L Sopoaga, 23 A Lienert-Brown. After a miraculous recovery, Ben Te’o is back in action with England in the Six Nations. Here is everything you need to know about the former rugby league starcenter_img Hands free: Ben Te’o takes on Italy I wouldn’t say my winning try against France was a highlight. I don’t look at tries as a reflection of how I play. I more admire an 80-minute shift, plenty of involvements, strong carries, work-rate in defence. You might score two tries but not do much else.Match winner: the Worcester centre’s first Test try brought England victory against FranceThe Lions squad announcement mucked with my head. Friends and family sent me stories about the rumours (that he was in the squad) but I don’t believe anything until it happens. I was quite nervous two days out, thinking ‘What if I could?’ or ‘Jeez, now I’d be really upset if I wasn’t picked’, so I was very happy when it was all over. I’m sure there were lots of guys having the same feelings.The boys at Worcester gave me a good reaction. We watched the announcement as a team. It’s great for the young guys here to see someone from Worcester get that opportunity. I’m sure they’ll be thinking that one day they could have a moment like that. It was a nice moment to be recognised on my rugby union journey, it’s another chapter.I supported the Wallabies against the 2013 Lions. I was in a State of Origin camp with Queensland and we all watched in the team room as one of our former team-mates, Izzy Folau, made his debut. We were proud of him and all supporting Izzy.I played in seven State of Origin games. They’re massive occasions and very confrontational, so that experience is really valuable.Star in Oz: Te’o in action for the Maroons during the 2014 State of Origin seriesFatigue won’t be a factor for the Lions. Guys have played a season of rugby but you’ll get yourself up for a Lions series against the best team in the world. Guys have been looking forward to it for four years.I don’t apologise for playing for different countries. People say, ‘I was born here, I grew up here, I represent there’ but it’s not the case for everyone. My parents are from opposite sides of the world, both of their heritages are important to me. I was born and spent my childhood in New Zealand but I also spent a lot of time honing my skills in Australia. I was proud to represent my dad’s (Samoan) heritage in rugby league – he loved that.My mum means a lot to me too. My surname is Samoan but I really enjoy playing for England, I enjoy the satisfaction Mum gets out of that. She’s proud of me and has come over to watch me play (in England). No matter what anyone says, I’m English and I feel that. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Fake charity wristband warning

Fake charity wristband warning Howard Lake | 30 March 2005 | News Chief Executive of Institute of Fundraising, Lindsay Boswell, added: “Wristbands sold independently of the charity are less likely to be reputable and we would encourage anyone wanting to buy one to contact the charity directly or to visit their website.”The Commission advises anyone wanting to buy a wristband to avoid paying for the bands via auction sites and other non-charitable web pages. If anyone has any concerns about bogus fundraisers, they can contact their local police station or trading standards bureau. The Charity Commission has warned the public that conmen are selling fake charity wristbands online.Wristbands supporting causes such as anti-bullying, anti-racism and the recently launched Make Poverty History campaign have become very popular. As a result, conmen have lept on the (wrist)bandwagon and are selling fake charity wristbands.Head of Communications at the Charity Commission, Antony Robbins, said: “We must remember that these wristbands represent important issues. It’s great that they are becoming so popular, but if they solely become fashion items there is a risk that the causes being promoted could lose credibility… We would advise anyone wanting to buy a wristband to make sure they are giving their money to a genuine charity. “ Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

‘More than a major. A movement.’

first_imgReddIt Linkedin Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Nelson Mandela’s former prison guard visits campus to reflect on their unlikely friendship printSix words: “More than a major. A movement.” These words serve as the motto for the Comparative Race & Ethnic Studies (CRES) program as it looks forward to continuing to impact TCU at its core.As TCU has adopted its “Vision in Action” strategic plan to improve diversity and inclusion among the campus, CRES has been active in working to change the campus culture by educating “students, faculty, staff and the larger community to critically examine racial and ethnic identities,” its mission statement says.“We created CRES because we thought that it was in the benefit of all students and of the entire university community to understand race and ethnicity and how they work,” Director of CRES Max Krochmal said.Krochmal said the program has been “wildly successful” thus far and has influenced students, faculty, and staff to have conversations about differences. He said the critical components of the program are designed to translate into skills that will help create ethical leaders in a global society, as the TCU mission statement says.“We need to help expose students to stories, experiences, histories and cultures that have been marginalized,” he said. “We need to help all students understand their social positioning in relationship to systems that confer privileges on one group and systematically oppress others, especially with race and ethnicity, and we need to give students the tools to communicate, thrive and function across lines of difference.”Although CRES officially started in the spring of 2017, the first batch of courses began in the fall with two sections of CRES 10103 – Engaging Difference and Diversity.Sophomore Tymerra Coleman said she chose to study CRES after switching her major four times during her freshman year. She said the introductory class has given her a stronger platform to speak about race. As a black woman at a predominantly white institution, Coleman said white students frequently make assumptions about minority students.“I think people expect me to know everything about race because I’m black,” Coleman said. “CRES gives me the opportunity, as well as people who are not people of color, to explore some of these issues.”Her classmate, Cody Reynolds, is the only white male in that section and said he initially felt out of place but had a great experience in the course. Reynolds is a senior music composition major, and he believes there should be changes to the core curriculum to support classes like CRES that are useful in everyday life.“A lot of the core classes that we’re required to take have little to no impact and really I don’t get anything from,” Reynolds said. “If we can incorporate classes that deal with modern issues or that relate to our daily lives, I think it’s not only useful but should be mandatory.”He said the need for mandatory courses is a result of seeing TCU invest in resources to make the campus more inclusive but watching the majority – white students – shy away from enrolling in classes or attending events or programs dedicated to diversity.According to the 2017 TCU Fact Book, the undergraduate population is 70.5 percent white. In comparison, the Hispanic, Black, and Asian populations don’t even total 23 percent with 13.5 percent, 5.4 percent, and 3.2 percent, respectively.“I do believe that TCU does do a good job of giving resources and giving opportunities to people who seek them out, but that’s the issue – it’s that the majority of people on campus aren’t going to them,” Reynolds said.To change or add to the core curriculum, several things must be done to get a course approved, but it starts with faculty submitting courses for approval, Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness Catherine Wehlberg said.The process to implement a course into the TCU Core Curriculum (Graphic made by Brandon Kitchin)“The faculty senate committee is still in early stages of proposing a possible change to the core and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) subcommittee are also part of discussing,” said Committee Chair for Academic Excellence Joddy Murray.“We are now discussing several options for developing students’ cultural competency within TCU’s core,” Associate Professor of English and Faculty Affiliate for Women and Gender Studies Ariane Balizet, who serves on the DEI committee, said. “Attention to issues of diversity, power, and marginalization in the curriculum are part of a larger, campus-wide effort, prompted by the Chancellor, to understand and promote diversity.”Emendation and Course Info Policy for the TCU Core Curriculum by Brandon Kitchin on ScribdEven if courses are approved for the core curriculum, students and faculty say one problem still exists: a lack of diversity among faculty to help teach those courses. They say fixing that should be the next big step for the university.“How can we expect students to be here, students of color to be here and to be engaged if we’re not even representing that in our faculty?” Coleman said. “I think collectively, you know, diversifying curriculum is important, but we have to have faculty of color here who can represent that in the classroom. We have to make sure our curriculum reflects our true values if you want to teach students to be ethical leaders in a global community – how can we do that when they’re not even that on TCU’s campus?”Krochmal sees the same problem.“If we got the core curriculum passed tomorrow, I don’t know who would teach it,” Krochmal said. “If we achieve diversity and inclusion at a greater scale, it’s going to open up new avenues for university advancement. If you hire even a small percentage of faculty of color, there are ripple effects throughout the entire campus culture that makes the climate more inclusive and welcoming.Reynolds agreed.“If there’s higher numbers, then there’s a larger voice and if there’s a larger voice, then we can continue to make an impact,” Reynolds said.While CRES takes the necessary steps to reach the next phase, Krochmal is confident that the university will get it done sooner rather than later.“A couple years ago when we first dreamed up this idea, a lot of people thought we were crazy,” he said. “They thought ‘you’ll never get a major in ethnic studies at TCU, TCU is never going to invest seriously in diversity, equity and inclusion, you’ll never get it in the core,’ and you know we got the major. TCU is making rigorous investments in diversity and equity and the core is on the table. I think we have made a lot of progress. I think that the highest levels of the administration are invested in diversity in a way that they never were when I first arrived, and that’s really refreshing to see.” Brandon Kitchin is a junior Journalism major and TCU 360 line editor from Grand Prairie, Texas. If you ever get the chance to meet him, he is such a positive person that you might just have your day made. You can find him in the loudest section of the Amon G. Carter Stadium or on the field at halftime with “The Pride Of TCU,” the Horned Frog Marching Band. He plays bass drum for the TCU Drumline.

He headed the culture ministry’s Press and Publications Inspection Bureau before retiring in June 2012.Now aged 62, Dao had become increasingly critical of the government in his blogging. His blog, phamvietdao3.blogspot.com, was the target of repeated cyber-attacks and was forced offline by an attack in March 2012. He relaunched it only to see it blocked again before his arrest in June 2013.Ranked 174th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Vietnam is also on the Reporters Without Borders list of Enemies of the Internet because of its relentless hounding of bloggers and cyber-dissidents.Sign the Reporters Without Borders petition calling for the release of the 35 bloggers currently jailed in Vietnam.
