Hoskins Sotutu on attempting to dive like Rokocoko and emulating his winger dad

first_imgTuesday Jul 7, 2020 Hoskins Sotutu on attempting to dive like Rokocoko and emulating his winger dad Blues number eight Hoskins Sotutu has risen to prominence with consistently impressive performances for the Blues in this season Super Rugby Aotearoa competition. The mobile forward has also caught the attention of those abroad, due to his eligibility for both England and Fiji. ADVERTISEMENTThe 21-year-old has a rich rugby history, with his father, Waisake, having played for the Blues and Fiji.While there has been speculation about a possible move to England at some point in his career, Hoskins has just re-signed with the Blues for the next two years.Coach Leon MacDonald said he has been one of the teams stand-out performers so far this season.“He has a unique skillset which is well-rounded. He has set-up tries with his kicking and with accurate missed passes yet he can do the core roles of carrying hard, offloading, making his tackles and an asset in the lineout,” said MacDonald.“Hoskins got his chance with the work he did pre-season and has continued to deliver game-in, game-out, and he is developing from a very quiet teenager to a real contributor off the field also. He has come out of the Blues and Auckland systems and if he continues to develop with the same attitude, he can look forward to a long and successful career with us.”RELATED: Here’s why All Blacks fans are so excited by Blues youngster Hoskins SotutuThe talented, 6ft4 number eight will be with the Blues until 2022.“I have signed for two more years with the Blues which is great,” said Sotutu.ADVERTISEMENT“My goals are for the Blues to kick-on in this competition how we left off before Covid-19, keep the team strong and help them continue to improve. It is all about the team for me. I don’t like to look too far ahead. I like to focus on the team I am playing for.”This short feature sees him talk about his history, his rise and playing for the Blues fans.

When designing a housing complex, it is a typical formula to put all the housing units under the same conditions as much as possible. However, in this project, this formula applied only to units on the second and third floor. A passage which needed to be paved on the side of the building reduced the floor area of units on the first floor and restriction of daylight made it impossible to make bedroom or living room. Diagonal limit on the fourth floor reduced the volume of the building, thus increased dead space, and made it impossible to extend exterior stairs. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoConsidering such conditions, units on the first and fourth floor with simple, open and monotone interior compose maisonette with units on the second and third floor with brown tone relaxing interior. Units on the first floor which face the street can be used as SOHO. Units on the second and third floor are studio type apartment. Units on the fourth floor are airy and have a good view. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe direction of the units are turned 90 degrees depending on the environment of each floor. Units on the first floor are open to the side to avoid frontal road with a lot of traffic. Units on the second and third floor are open to frontal road to avoid adjacent buildings. Units on the fourth floor are open to the side as view is open over the roof of adjacent buildings. The units on each floor are stacked in X・Y・Y・X direction in coordinate system. Each floor in the same maisonette gives different impressions in terms of interior and direction. Save this picture!DiagramHousing complex in a dense residential area faces difficult conditions. Surrounding environment makes it difficult to give same conditions for all the units. We proposed a solution by making the most of the conditions of the each floor and supplementing the advantage of each by combination of different floors. This is a housing complex which gives the tenants the liberty to choose the extra feature to the ordinary apartment.

Shaping Tomorrow’s Mortgage Leaders

The survey, conducted by recruiting expert Rick Glass of Rick Glass Executive Search based in California, was intended to determine the most important concerns and challenges for this year and beyond.“It is too simplistic to say they are concerned about loan volume,” said Glass. “Of course they are. But to achieve and sustain growth, profitability and market share, executives are all-too aware that they must have the right people in place to lead their origination and operating teams. This is where the most meaningful challenges are to be found,” he said.Senior leadership ranked their top four priorities to meet the needs of a rising rate environment:Talent acquisitionLeadership developmentEmployee retentionMergers and acquisitions leadership experienceAmong the primary concerns will be finding top field sales agents and developing the leaders to manage them while ensuring optimal integration with acquirers, along with retaining those team members most valued.“It is a tricky time. Companies will be competing for the best origination talent and that means they must be able to merchandise and deliver a meaningful value proposition while finding the right leadership to attract, manage and retain those high performers,” Glass said.The most surprising trait executives indicated was missing from their leadership teams, according to Glass, was “performance accountability.” Seventy-eight percent of respondents had concerns over the way their leaders accepted and embraced responsibility for the results of their teams’ performance.Sixty percent of respondents indicated that millennial talent acquisition was among their highest priorities of investments over the course of the year. “I found this both surprising and expected,” Glass said, who has published articles on the challenges of recruiting millennials. “This young group has a somewhat different set of priorities and a global view that differs from previous generations. To recruit them effectively, C-level executives need leaders who can identify the top millennial prospects and relate to them in a way that brings out their best,” he said. “Recruiting and leading them are not necessarily as intuitive as in the past. They require a careful approach and new thinking on the part of management.”For more information on this survey, click here.

Strategic use of flex

first_imgCompanies already know the value of human capital. How can aflexible benefits package help sell the company to top talent? By Mike AshtonIncreasingly, companies are focusing more on their people and claiming,”people are our biggest asset”. Becoming an employer of choice iscritical to their business, as this is perceived to be how to addressrecruitment and retention difficulties among others. One way of supporting this is to introduce flexible reward (flex). Thisrequires a distinct move away from simply tweaking the base pay numbers andinstead, adopting a more holistic view of reward to meet the changing needs ofemployees. While addressing these needs, companies also have to sell the concept to theboard and shareholders by demonstrating a clear link between the introductionof flexibility in the reward package and increased profitability andshareholder value. For companies wishing to address this issue and align reward with the HRstrategy, there are several steps to take. It is imperative for a business caseto be drawn up to highlight the impact of introducing flex. This should clearlystate how flex will increase profitability while demonstrating tangiblebenefits to employees. Some of the main objectives cited within the businesscase are: – reduce or control the cost of total reward – meet employees changing needs – enhance the perception of being an employer of choice – maximise the perceived value of benefits – communicate the value of total reward – maximise the use of technology Factors such as eliminating hierarchy and onerous benefits are not commonreasons for introducing flex, although it can assist in facilitating this alongwith the harmonisation of benefits. The business case should focus on financial efficiencies, including tax andnational insurance savings that can be generated. This can be enhanced byincluding retirement benefits within flex which, typically, have not beenincluded in the past due to the perceived complexity of doing so. After building the business case and identifying how the objectives can bemet, the next challenge is to ensure that any changes made to the benefitspackage are made with the profile of employees in mind to ensure an attractiveplan is introduced, encouraging participation. Communication, which to many organisations may historically have meantholding a meeting with union representatives, is key to any change and ensuringkey stakeholders and employees buy-in to the concept. The process adopted canhave a profound impact, as not only will it provide details of the change, butit may be the first time companies have chosen to express the value of totalreward and emphasise the investment that the company is making in eachindividual employee. It may also assist in raising awareness of the value of benefit provision,highlighting that company-provided benefits often enable employees to benefitfrom corporate buying power. Communication also gives the company the opportunity to reinforce its brandand enhance the ‘look and feel’ and ‘opportunity’ associated with being part ofthe organisation. But what happens when organisations want to extend this ‘look and feel’ toemployees within the European or global firm? There is an increasing awareness of flex in Europe and in some cases, on aglobal basis. Often, employees are required to work internationally and withinthe fierce labour market that we currently operate in, often referred to as awar for talent, companies are looking to distinguish themselves from theircompetitors, while ensuring that from an employee perspective, the companylooks the same irrespective of the country in which an employee is located. The inherent structure of flex allows different benefits, across differingcountries and regions, to be brought together in one package enabling oneidentity and one brand to be consistently applied. Difficulties often occur if the planned structure is too rigid and does notaccount for modification as a result of differences in tax and legal regimes.However this does not mean that a similar concept cannot be made available toeach participating country. Flex, which so often has been considered to be a list of insurance productsthat enables an individual to provide cover for their spouse and family, isalmost as antiquated as the historic fixed benefits structure. Flex is about somuch more – opportunity, learning and development and it can offer so much, tothe business and also to employees. If people really are your greatest asset, it is vital to stay in touch withchanging practices to ensure you are not perceived as a second divisionemployer. Flex can take anything from six to 18 months to implement, depending on thenumber of benefits included and the complexity of the eligibility and choicesavailable. If your organisation is forward thinking and wants to benefit from theadvantages flex can bring to you and your people, now is the time to act.

At Indiana GOP Convention: Sense of Urgency Felt Amid Marriage Controversy

first_imgTwitterFacebook At Indiana GOP Convention: Sense of Urgency Felt Amid Marriage ControversyJUNE 9TH, 2018 JEFF GOLDBERG EVANSVILLE, INDIANAA lot of the talk coming into the Indiana State GOP Convention revolved around an age-old institution: marriage. In the 2018 Indian GOP party platform, a passage on strong families was slightly altered to remove the phrase that defines marriage as something between a man and a woman. The thought to change it was to be more inclusive of ever-changing Hoosier families. That’s what Mike Simpson, Porter County Republican Chairman, argued during his one minute to defend the switch during the GOP Convention held in Evansville. Simpson said now more than ever, with the opioid crisis and an ever-changing world, strong families aren’t always built by traditional families. His point was heard but was not echoed during the voice vote by the delegates on whether to adopt the 2018 version or stick with the 2016 version.The voice vote was certainly the loudest portion of the convention: hundreds of delegates yelling “AYE” for the version of the platform they wanted to see. Hoosiers have a way of open dialogue and that’s what was felt in the week prior. But in the most stripped down form of dialogue, Hoosier Republicans voted to keep the line “marriage between one man & one woman” intact. The tagline for the weekend was Indiana Republicans are the party of purpose, and they purposefully chose to stick with their laurels.When asked about the decision, the state representative from Chandler, Ron Bacon, explained it easily.“I listened to my Republican constituents and they said to keep it as it is.”A marriage made the headlines but if you ask anyone who was at the convention; Mike Braun was the talk of the town. From RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel to Governor Eric Holcomb, to a letter from President Donald Trump everyone at the Ford Center wanted to see Mike Braun replace current U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly. In true Donald Trump rally fashion, the convention crowd chanted “send Joe [Donnelly] home!” intermittently. It was this sense of urgency that reverberated around the Ford Center more than the voice vote. Dozens of folks all trying to energize a party of people to flip a blue seat.With energy pumping from McDaniel and Governor Holcomb, Mike Braun took the stage. In comparison to the two before him, Braun spoke softly, but he was quick to point out the big stick he carries with him. Years of businesses acumen including a degree from Harvard Business is what the potential U.S. Senator focused on. He pointed out the business he helped build is no more than an hour from Evansville, and all the steps that he took to build it. Braun was cool and calculated in his approach, hitting on Donnelly for sending jobs to Mexico and working with Pelosi and Schumer.Indiana GOP Chairman Kyle Hupfer spoke about the need for diversity in the party. He looked at a broad strokes version of Indiana and the republicans that reside within the Hoosier State. From a more urban setting to the rural folks just getting WiFi, Hupfer said it was important to get all demographics involved.Convention business beyond platform talk was very straightforward. Each of the three statewide office nominees was running unopposed. Connie Lawson is looking for her second term as Secretary of State. She focused on buffing Indiana’s elections as a reason to vote her in again.Kelly Mitchell is the nominee for state treasurer. She hit on a major point, lowering college costs for young Hoosiers.Of the three ladies running, Tera Klutz is the most unique. She was appointed to the role of Indiana State Auditor after the woman in the role before her, Suzanne Crouch, was elevated to the Lt. Governor position. Running her first campaign Klutz embraced a fun energetic vibe during a pretaped commercial. She spoke of transparency reports with the same vigor sports fans speak of home runs and big slam dunks. Klutz says she’s ready to be the first CPA State Auditor.Indiana GOP Chairman Hupfer downplayed any talks of the Republican Party being at war with women. He simply pointed to the three qualified women who have run and won state offices.One GOP official told me he hoped the convention is boring because that means that everything is working as intended. On the flip side, conventions are meant to be a place where the base is energized and that was certainly felt in Evansville. But it was a mix of the boring party business along with the frenetic voting energy on the platform and surrounding Mike Braun that made the convention’s first foray into Evansville one to remember.

Frost & Snow cupcakes boost job opportunities

first_imgA business case and market research for the cupcake bakery concept has been completed and a 12-month trial is now under way at a temporary bakery, with the permanent café and bakery due to open next year. A cupcake bakery and café, which creates training and job opportunities for people who have been made homeless, is part of a £10m scheme to improve a Birmingham-based housing and support group.Social housing and regeneration group Midland Heart is improving facilities and services at its Snow Hill site in the city, which currently provides accommodation and support for up to 157 homeless men, aged 25 and over. The project, which has been funded under the government’s Places of Change scheme, includes the creation of a cupcake bakery in conjunction with local baker Sarah Frost. Called Frost & Snow, the business will create training and job opportunities for people who had been homeless and want to get into employment but need training and work experience.center_img “The business is first and foremost about a consistently high quality and beautiful product that cake lovers everywhere would crave more of,” said Sarah Clee, Midland Heart’s marketing and communications manager. “The bonus is that every purchase contributes to creating opportunities for previously homeless people to get back on their feet and profits will be used to support the homeless to regain their independence.”last_img read more
