‘Lancaster must stay’ says All Blacks hero because ‘England players weren’t good enough’

first_img Stuart Lancaster and Chris Robshaw 1 Former New Zealand coach Graham Henry believes England should stick with Stuart Lancaster and has delivered a damning assessment of the host nation’s failure at the Rugby World Cup.Henry, a World Cup winner with the All Blacks in 2011, hopes the Rugby Football Union sticks with head coach Lancaster despite England being eliminated from the tournament in the group stages following defeats to Wales and Australia.Henry, who also coached Wales and the British and Irish Lions, has also rejected any suggestion he could become England coach should Lancaster be shown the door.Asked if he thought Lancaster should remain in the job, he told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme: “I hope he does. I haven’t got a crystal ball but I hope he does.“I think we too often burn our coaches because that’s public opinion and media opinion and you have to start all over again.”Henry, who was retained as All Blacks coach in the aftermath of their quarter-final defeat to France at the 2007 World Cup, added: “Stuart Lancaster is obviously a good man and he has produced a rugby side which has got good values and a good culture from a situation which wasn’t so good so he’s done some positive things.“I think continuity of people is absolutely critical if you want to do something special. They know what they need to do to get better.“If Stuart Lancaster has got the ability it’s a no-brainer to me.”Henry, who ruled himself out of any involvement with England if the RFU decided on change, was forthright in his assessment of the host nation’s failure at the current World Cup.“The disappointing thing for England is they haven’t got the personnel to compete at the top level of the game,” he said.“Quite frankly the group of players that were selected for England for this Rugby World Cup were not good enough to do the job.”last_img read more

REVEALED: TOURISTS TO GET VIRTUAL REALITY TOURS OF DONEGAL – SO THAT THEY WILL COME HERE FOR REAL!

first_imgTOURISTS are to get virtual reality tours of Donegal – in a bid to lure them to Ireland’s best county for real.Fáilte Ireland has included one unforgettable Donegal experience in its VR pilot project on the Wild Atlantic Way.Unique Ascent’s Iain Miller helped create the Virtual Reality experience of climbing a Donegal sea stack – one of the highest in Europe. Donegal Daily readers will be familiar with Iain and his incredible sea stack climbs. But it’s just the start of an incredible marking drive giving people the chance to remotely experience 3D tours of the coastal route.Piloted last week at the international tourism fair ITB in Berlin, VR gives Fáilte Ireland the chance to show buyers and potential visitors just what they are missing.The Donegal experiences will be shared on the Oculus store where millions of people with VR headsets can download and enjoy them, further promoting Irish tourism across new and innovative channels globally.The tourism authority are also investigating the possibility of integrating the VR experiences across their Tourist Office network and ultimately offer it to trade and industry partners to use for their own promotional activity. Fáilte Ireland’s Director of Marketing, Noel-John McLoughlin said: “Virtual Reality is proving to be a game changer in how experiences are consumed and this technology is set to be the most exciting innovation in travel and tourism marketing during 2016.“I am delighted to say that Ireland is leading the virtual charge and is at the forefront of this new wave of innovation.“With these virtual tours of the Wild Atlantic Way, we can bring the excitement and thrill of the world’s longest coastal route directly to buyers, consumers and media and allow them to truly sample what Ireland has to offer.”Climbing one of the tallest sea stacks in Europe, in the wonderful northern headlands of Donegal – with Iain Miller from Unique Ascent.Fáilte Ireland piloted Iain’s experience on VR headsets at ITB Berlin, one of the world’s largest tourism trade fairs with 10,000 exhibitors from 187 countries and territories and with approximately 100,000 international trade visitors and members of the public in attendance. The experiences were extremely popular and drew a great response from those who tried them with one overseas user commenting: “You forget it’s a 3D/360 experience and you think its reality. It really gave me the full experience of the Wild Atlantic Way – I never knew you could do that in Ireland, it was amazing.”The virtual reality experiences were commissioned by Fáilte Ireland and filmed during February by Big O Media using specialised cameras to create suitable material to stream through Samsung VR Gear and Occulus Rift Technology.Addressing the advantages and applications of the new technology, Amanda Horan, Sales Development Officer with Fáilte Ireland who piloted the demonstration in Berlin, pointed out: “This is brand new technology and Fáilte Ireland wants to exploit ‘early mover advantage’ to ensure that Ireland stands out and that we can grab attention for new experience brands such as the Wild Atlantic Way.“The reception we received in Berlin proves that this accessible and interactive technology can open up great potential for Irish tourism and, already, we are planning how we may incorporate it into our tourist office networks as well into the many trade fairs and industry platforms where crucial travel decision making takes place. “Emerging technology like this will also significantly influence our ongoing experience development work – along the Wild Atlantic Way, across Ireland’s Ancient East and in Dublin – as we strive to improve the interpretation and animation of storytelling at key sites.”The plan now is to create more Donegal virtual reality videos showing off the best of the county.REVEALED: TOURISTS TO GET VIRTUAL REALITY TOURS OF DONEGAL – SO THAT THEY WILL COME HERE FOR REAL! was last modified: March 18th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalFailte IrelandUnique AscentVirtual Realitylast_img read more

Mahrez sends Man City back to top of the Premier League with winner at Spurs

first_imgManchester City overcame a sticky Wembley pitch to return the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Tottenham.The playing surface at the national stadium was in a poor condition due to Sunday’s NFL game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles but that did not bother City as Riyad Mahrez’s sixth-minute goal proved enough. The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 3 The visitors needed only six minutes to prove playing on the surface was not going to be a problem as they raced into the lead with a goal that seemed far too easy.Kieran Trippier failed to deal with a long ball, which Sterling raced on to before skinning his England team-mate and laying it on a plate for Mahrez to tuck home from close range.It was his fourth league goal of the season and was a fitting tribute to his former chairman at Leicester Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who tragically died in a helicopter crash on Saturday night.Tottenham, to their credit, mounted a promising response, with Harry Kane rifling a 25-yard effort just over while Toby Alderweireld headed straight at Ederson from a corner. 3 OFF City’s left-hand side was proving to be a weak point and Spurs twice got in on goal, but wasted good positions.City had further chances to extend their lead, with Mahrez forcing Hugo Lloris into a smart save at his near post while the France goalkeeper also had to keep out a David Silva effort.Ten minutes into the second half, Bernardo Silva advanced down the right and appeared to present an open goal to David Silva, but the midfielder chose to take a touch and pass to Sterling, who then saw his shot blocked on the line by Ben Davies.Sergio Aguero, searching for his 150th league goal for City, then had two quickfire chances to reach the landmark as he was fed by David Silva but Lloris got down low and then the goalkeeper had to fist away an effort from distance.Tottenham’s golden chance for an equaliser came in the final 10 minutes as City were robbed of possession and Dele Alli could not have made it easier for Lamela but the Argentinian painfully blazed over and with it, Spurs’ chance was gone.

Hughes backing Di Matteo and salutes former club for Barca win

first_imgQPR boss Mark Hughes has hailed his former club Chelsea for managing to beat Barcelona last week.Hughes, who remains a favourite among Chelsea fans and also played for Barca, was at Stamford Bridge to see last Wednesday’s game.“It was a fantastic result for the club. They had to be really disciplined and they got the job done,” he said.“It was difficult because they didn’t have a great deal of possession, but they maximised their opportunity when it presented itself. It sets up the return leg fantastically well.“I wish them well. It’s a huge game for them and still a big ask. I think everyone understands that.”And Hughes praised his former Blues team-mate Roberto Di Matteo for the job he has done since being played in charge.The Welshman said: “He’s doing really well. All you can do as a manager is win football matches and that’s what he’s been able to do.“He’s brought Chelsea through a difficult period and is producing the goods.

The Buyer’s Process Isn’t What You Think

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now I watched a group of salespeople make a sales call today. The prospective clients were very engaged throughout the sales call, including the presentation (which was, thankfully, more of a dialogue). The salespeople were successful, and the buyers committed to taking the next step in the process.While the call was wrapping up, one of the sales people ask the buyer the question: “What are the most important factors for you in determining who your partner will be for this project?” The buyers both sat quietly for a minute and look at each other. Then, the more senior of the two buyer said, “You know, we really don’t know what factors we’re going to use to decide.”This isn’t the buyers first time making this purchase. This group of buyers has a very good idea of what they need. There is plenty of information about this particular product available and easily accessible on the web. Companies in their space routinely receive calls from sales people who sell this particular product. Both of the buyers are smart, and they know their business.So, are we to assume that they’re 67 percent through the buying cycle? Are we to assume that sales people can add no value in helping them determine what they need and the trade-offs that they might make? Are we to assume that they know as much as a the salesperson and that information and ideas are no longer useful because they know as much or more?Generalizations are lies. Sometimes we confuse facts and statistics for absolute truths. Much of the information we hear about how buyers buy is based on how consumers buy, not how complex sales are made (even if some would push for complex sales to be made transactional).We take buyers as we find them. Despite any facts, figures, or research, we can find them anywhere along the buying journey. Working to understand where they are and how to create value for them is critical. It’s dangerous to make assumptions, especially when you could just as easily ask the questions necessary to uncover what a buyer really needs.QuestionsWhat assumptions do you make about what your prospects already know?What assumptions do you make about what your dream clients value and how they will decide?What questions do you ask to elicit where they are in their “process?”last_img read more

How Not To Be Offended By Other People’s Beliefs and Opinions

first_imgThere are 7.7 billion people on planet Earth. All of these people have beliefs that conflict with yours—all of them.While you might share a religious faith with some part of Earth’s population, you have conflicting beliefs about politics with approximately half of the community whose faith you share. You might also split from some significant part of that same population in their interpretation of the faith.You might share your politics with half the population of your country. That population would be made up of people who share other beliefs with you. Even when some people share your broad political views, you will find people who disagree with you on the issues of the day and how best to resolve them from a political perspective, even when they share your broader view. The media does its best to remind you of your differences every two years in the United States.There are factions with strongly-held beliefs about the way human beings organize themselves economically, with different ideas about how much companies and industries should be regulated and how much they should pay in taxes. Your belief lies somewhere on a continuum that contains a wide variety of ideas and opinions, with people occupying lots of different points between the extremes.Let’s look at something less divisive, but where there are still arguments over what is good and right and true.There is a large population of people with extreme opinions about what constitutes a healthy human diet. Some people believe you should not eat animals, some believe you should only eat animals (a few of whom Twitter banned for sharing images of carnivores eating their prey, as it offended some), and some who believe you should eat mostly fat. My grandmother would have been offended by all these positions, believing instead that you should eat whatever you want. Her diet consisted of fried foods, desserts, and she used bacon grease as salad dressing (she lived to be 92 years old, and drank a shot of Scotch before bed every night, and we suspect she sneaked a bit more than a single shot over her last few years).The categories and wide spectrum of beliefs and opinions are too great to be able to find consensus on any one thing–even in a population that agrees on much. If you have to be offended by beliefs that differ from yours, then you have to be offended by everyone on Earth, in all places, at all times, an idea that is exhausting even to write. If you do agree on everything with someone, the banality of the conversation must be be enough to cause the deepest of sleep.Why You Should Not Be OffendedThe very best reason not to be offended by what others believe is that it has no bearing on what you believe. Thankfully, your happiness does not require that the rest of the world share your views, nor does their happiness require you to share theirs. Ben & Jerry’s makes a variety of different flavors, and I am certain they have one that you will prefer.More still, there is a reason to avoid being offended by everything and everyone as it pertains to your mindset, and that is the fact that being constantly offended is infects you with negativity, scarcity, and a sense of cynicism. You may have noticed that people who watch only “outrage television” tend to always to be outraged. You may also notice that they view the world through a lens that splits people into “us” and “them,” and in doing so, defines an enemy. As my Jewish, liberal, atheist friend, Howard Bloom says, “Politics is permission to hate.”Being offended by others and believing them to be your enemy is a debilitating belief system that massive limits the quality of your life.And yet, there is still more to say about the benefits of not being offended by people, ideas, and beliefs with which you disagree. When you have to be offended by things with which you disagree, you cut yourself off from other ideas and insights and relationships. It is not only possible to have deep and rich relationships with people across the political spectrum without being offended by their beliefs, you may find it beneficial. Instead of being irritated, you could discover their opinions are interesting—and their perspective might even be enlightening—an outcome that is not possible if you are offended or outraged.How Not to Be OffendedRecognize you have different beliefs and opinions and preferences from everyone else on Earth, even people with whom you have some shared beliefs. Recognize that they have the same right to hold those beliefs that conflict with yours, as well as the right to express them. Be grateful you share that right.When there is no requirement that you share someone else’s beliefs, there is no harm to you when other people express theirs. It is only when one wishes to impose their beliefs on others, or acts on beliefs that harm others that should cause offense–or in the worst of cases, outrage. Wanting the world to conform to your beliefs in every area of life is the belief system of the totalitarian.While I hope you adopt the belief that you don’t have to be offended or outraged by other people’s beliefs and opinions, I won’t be offended if you don’t.
