Who is Felix Jones: Ten things you should know about the Springbok assistant coach

first_img Who is Felix Jones: Ten things you should know about the Springboks assistant coachFelix Jones is a former Munster and Ireland full-back who is currently working as an assistant coach for the Springboks.Here are a few more facts and stats about the South Africa assistant coach.Ten things you should know about Felix Jones1. Jones was born on 5 August 1987 in Dublin. He attended St Andrew’s College and subsequently earned selection for the Ireland U20 side in 2007.2. Jones had a brief stint with Leinster before moving on to Munster, where he spent the last six years of his relatively short professional career. The full-back was part of the Munster side that won the 2010-11 Magners League.3. Jones played 13 Tests for Ireland between 2011 and 2015. He was part of the Ireland side that won the Six Nations in 2015.Felix Jones scores a try for Ireland against Georgia (Sportsfile/Getty Images)4. In late 2015, Jones was forced to retire from the game at the age of 28. Medical staff advised the talented full-back to hang up his boots after he sustained a serious neck injury in a Pro12 match between Munster and Glasgow.5. Jones holds a Master’s degree in Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology from the University of Limerick.Related: Felix Jones on how to read the game from full-back Can’t get to the shops?

Jones pursued a career in coaching after retiring. He impressed during his first season with Munster in 2016-17, where he worked with South African duo Rassie Erasmus and Jacques Nienaber.Jones was subsequently drafted into the Ireland coaching team as a consultant.7. When Springbok attack coach Swys de Bruin stepped down in 2019, Erasmus moved to secure Jones’s services – albeit as an extra defence coach – ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Japan.The Bok coaches and players hailed Jones’s eye for detail, and felt that the Irishman was more than deserving of his World Cup winner’s medal.8. The tournament in Japan marked Jones’s first appearance at a World Cup. He missed the 2011 edition in New Zealand due to injury and was overlooked by Ireland coach Joe Schimdt for the 2015 global showpiece in England.9. The Springboks enjoyed a week-long trophy tour upon their return to South Africa. It was atop the team bus where Erasmus, Nienaber, Jones and head of athletic performance Aled Walters linked arms and sang a familiar Irish rugby anthem, ‘Stand Up and Fight’. All four men worked at Munster in 2016 and 2017 before making the move to the Boks.10. Jones continues to work with the Springbok coaching team – albeit from his base in Dublin. He has been mandated by Erasmus to monitor the South African players competing in the leagues across the United Kingdom and Europe.

Coral reefs provide flood protection worth $1.8 billion every year –…

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Michael Beck, University of California, Santa CruzThe news is grim: According to a report compiled by hundreds of scientists from 50 countries, Earth is losing species faster than at any other time in human history. Thanks to climate change, coastal development and the impacts of activities such as logging, farming and fishing, roughly 1 million plants and animals are facing extinction.The UN report calls for rapid action at every level, from local to global, to conserve nature and use it sustainably. And here’s some potential good news: Many ecosystems now at risk can provide valuable services if they are protected.I know from my research on coastal habitats that the biggest obstacle to investing in natural infrastructure, such as wetlands and reefs, often is that experts have not figured out how to value the protection that these habitats provide in economic terms. But a new report that I co-authored, published by the U.S. Geological Survey, solves that problem for one of our planet’s most biodiverse ecosystems: coral reefs.This report shows that coral reefs in U.S. waters, from Florida and the Caribbean to Hawaii and Guam, provide our country with more than US$1.8 billion dollars in flood protection benefits every year. They reduce direct flood damages to public and private property worth more than $800 million annually, and help avert other costs to lives and livelihoods worth an additional $1 billion. Rigorously valuing reef benefits in this way is the first step toward mobilizing resources to protect them.Healthy coral reefs with live coral provide much greater protection against coastal flooding than degraded reefs with low live coral cover.NOAABreaking waves and blocking floodsReefs act just like submerged breakwaters. They “break” waves and drain away their energy offshore, before it floods coastal properties and communities. This is an enormously valuable function. In 2017, tropical storms alone did over $265 billion in damage across the nation.Manmade defenses, such as sea walls, can damage adjoining habitats and harm species that rely on them. In contrast, healthy reefs enhance their surroundings by protecting shorelines and supporting fisheries and recreation, from diving to surfing.The flood protection benefits that reefs provide across the U.S. are similar to those in more than 60 other nations. As I estimated with colleagues in a separate study, the global cost of storm damage to the world’s coastlines would double without reefs.Pinpointing local flood protection valueOur estimate of the value of flood protection from reefs applies state-of-the-art tools that engineers and insurers use to assess flood risks and benefits.Using a model and more than 60 years of hourly wave data for all U.S. states and territories with reefs – a total area of over 1,900 miles – we developed flood risk maps projecting the extent and depth of flooding that would occur across many storms, both regular and catastrophic, with reefs present and then without them. We calculated these values in grid cells that measured just 100 square meters, or about 1,000 square feet – the footprint of a small house.Then we overlaid these flood risk maps on the latest information from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to identify people and properties at risk – and benefiting from the presence of reefs – in each location.Map showing the 100-year floodplains on south Maui, Hawai‘i. They show the flooding in a 1 in 100 year flood event with reefs at present (blue) and the extra flooding predicted (red) if we lost the topmost 1m (3 ft) of reef. The people and property under the red zone are those predicted to benefit by keeping reefs intact.USGSWith this level of detail, we now can identify not just total benefits provided by reefs, but who receives them. For example, Florida receives more than $675 million in annual flood protection from reefs, and Puerto Rico gets $183 million in protection yearly. In Honolulu alone, we found that reefs provide more than $435 million in protection from a catastrophic 1-in-50-year storm – an event large enough that it would be expected to occur only once in a 50-year period.It is well known that coral reefs are under heavy stress from climate change, which is warming oceans, causing coral bleaching. Pollution and overfishing are also doing serious damage. As the UN report on biodiversity loss notes, Earth has lost approximately half of its live coral reef cover since the 1870s. And that trend leaves 100-300 million people in coastal areas at increased risk due to loss of coastal habitat protection.Investing in natural defensesHow can our valuation study inform coral reef protection?First, it buttresses the case for using disaster recovery funding to help natural coastal defenses recover. After Hurricane Sandy in 2012, only about 1% of recovery funding went toward rebuilding natural resilience, despite subsequent research showing that marshes in the Northeast can reduce flood damages by some 16% annually.More than $100 billion has been appropriated to recover from hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma; it would make economic sense to spend some of these funds on rebuilding reefs. In a promising move, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has created opportunities to include ecosystem services such as flood protection and fishery production in official benefit to cost analysis calculations to support flood mitigation funding.Coral reef restoration in Hawaii starts with changing land management practices to reduce erosion.Second, the insurance industry has an important role to play in offering incentives and supporting investments in nature-based defenses for risk reduction. Insurers are starting to consider habitats in industry risk models and to create opportunities to ensure nature. Thus reefs could be re-built if they are damaged in storms or even restored now based on their proven flood protection (i.e., premium saving) benefits.Third, federal agencies have incentives to invest in reefs as protection for critical infrastructure. Reefs defend military bases located along tropical coastlines, as well as shore-hugging roads that are the lifeblood of many economies from Hawaii to Florida and Puerto Rico.Through its Engineering With Nature initiative, the Army Corps of Engineers is making more use of natural solutions to minimize flood risks. And the U.S. Department of Transportation is analyzing ways to protect coastal highways with nature-based solutions, such as marsh restoration. These programs are a start in the right direction.The new UN report clearly identifies key threats to species and ecosystems. Our work provides rigorous social and economic values quantifying what is at stake. My co-authors and I hope it creates new incentives to invest in coral reef conservation and restoration and to build coastal resilience.Michael Beck, Research professor, University of California, Santa CruzThis article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Site. CJP project is located in a 500m² area in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. The immediate context is characterized by a low population density as the house is located on the periphery of the consolidated urban fabric of the city. The surrounding area is populated by small neighborhoods of single family homes with plots of vineyards and fruit trees. The small number of buildings and the low-rise architecture of the area allow for an imposing view of the Andes mountains.Save this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaProgram y Typology. The request consisted of the design of a living unit -for two adults and two children- which developed into a L-shaped structure that surrounds a reinforced concrete core and a dry patio. Thus, the ground floor offers a spacious and illuminated north-facing area suitable for cooking, eating, and lounging; in contrast with a more secluded area designed for grooming and sleeping. The second floor offers a common space for all members of the house, whether they intend to study or work.Save this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaTectonic. The choice of materials is based on two different premises according to the level. The first floor was built with reinforced concrete with an exposed finish and masonry walls that are partly uncovered to exhibit their crafted work. The nucleus of stairs, guest restroom and study were designed into a monolithic piece of reinforced concrete that contrive the remaining rooms of the house. Conversely, the choice of materials on the first floor follow a different logic, with a metallic structure covered in corrugated sheet. Thus, a contrast integration is achieved through the use of two highly different construction systems.Save this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaLighting. Lighting is key in this project. One of the main premises of the project was the search for the perfect north-facing aspect for daytime spaces; i.e.: sitting room, dining room, kitchen, and gallery; placing the more private spaces facing west so that they receive the sunset lighting. In addition, a strategic skylight system allows for direct sunlight at different times of the day that can be appreciated while walking throughout the house, providing the perfect atmosphere from morning till evening.Save this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaSave this picture!Stair DetailSave this picture!© Arq. Luis AbbaLiving The Process. Today`s issue presents a rare scenario within the context of architectural photographic reports, since the house is already occupied by its owners even though the project is not 100% completed. We found it interesting to share a project during its substantial completion phase in this kind of report since there is no clear timeline as to when the remaining details will be completed, but the architecture built so far allows for the fundamental essence of the project to be appreciated. This scenario tends to occur more frequently than it seems, but it is not usually present in architecture pictures that often contemplate tidy, perfectly finished, and, in most cases, empty buildings. With this in mind, we ask ourselves: ¿Isn´t shelter the ultimate goal of every piece of architecture even if it hasn`t been completed yet? Why have we gotten used to showing faultless, neat, and visually perfect architecture if reality says otherwise? Everyday life provides concept, proportion, scale, fundamental reason, and existence to every piece of architecture. Perhaps, the future brings the possibility to appreciate a larger number of imperfect, real-life works of architecture in these kinds of publications which show actual people happily making use of the projects we -as architects- are creating.Save this picture!© Arq.

Research confirms online donors are influenced by how much others have given

first_img Tagged with: Digital Individual giving Research / statistics Research by the University of Bristol confirms that people giving online to charity are “strongly influenced” by how much other people have given on the website before them.According to the study, one donation of £100 listed on a fundraiser’s web page will typically increase average donations from £20 to £30. Equally, one small donation listed on a web page will lower the amounts that are subsequently given by around £5.The impact of this “peer effect” lasts for at least up to 20 donations afterwards, suggesting that potential donors do scroll through the list of recent donations received before choosing how much to give.Other findings• donors do not simply compete to be the top donor, or seek to avoid being the smallest donor.• how much donors respond to donations made by others does not depend on the total number of donations on a page, but it does depend on the ordering within a page.• peer effects are not limited to particular charities or groups of donors.• there is no evidence that the observed effect of past donations can be explained purely by donor behaviour around fundraising targets.The peer effect researchThe research was based on online fundraising for the 2010 London Marathon, using data from JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving. Researchers analysed 300,000 donations given to more than 10,000 fundraising pages distributed to more than 1,000 charities. According to the data, each fundraiser gets an average of 34.5 donations and raises an average of £1,093 in online donations and £335 in reported offline donations.The study was conducted by the University’s Centre for Market and Public Organisation, and was funded by the Leverhulme Trust and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).The report’s author Professor Sarah Smith said: “I don’t think it will surprise many people to learn that donors are influenced by their peers. What is interesting is the sheer scale of the effect – and the fact that it can be negative as well as positive. This could be helpful to professional and individual fundraisers in thinking about how to maximise the amount of money they raise.She added: “It isn’t as simple as donors competing to be the most generous – or avoiding being the meanest. Instead, it looks like they are trying to find what they think is the right level for them personally, compared to their peers.”In other words, “donors benchmark themselves against the distribution of donations from their peers”.Peer effects in charitable giving: Evidence from the (running) field) by Sarah Smith, Frank Windmeijer and Edmund Wright from the University of Bristol, is available to download Advertisement Howard Lake | 19 July 2012 | News  72 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Research confirms online donors are influenced by how much others have given AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
