CB: Only my face. I’m getting badgered to have my back waxed by my girlfriend, but I’m going to hold out as long as I can.RW: What’s the most you’ve spent on something, apart from a house?CB: I spent £9,000 on my car and I’ll probably spend more on my new one. I want a 4×4 – I’m very messy and my car is full of crap. Saying that, I’ll probably just fill the bigger one with crap! I spent £1,700 on a sofa. When I broke my foot I was lying on my sofa for two weeks and I realised how uncomfortable it was. As soon as I could walk I went and picked out a big corner sofa. The problem was it didn’t arrive for ten weeks so I still had this rubbish sofa to sit on while I was injured and by the time it came I was fit.RW: What’s your earliest memory?CB: Going to rugby training when I was four and a half, seeing people play, then telling my dad I didn’t want to do it because it looked really rough! Six months later, I went back and did it.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever seen happen in a match?CB: Watching a game in Ireland once, the rain was coming down so hard one of the wingers was standing behind a post protector to keep warm!RW: Didn’t something pretty funny happen to you at the Churchill Cup – or should that be embarrassing?CB: It had been dry all week but on the night before and morning of the game with Scotland A it was lashing it down. So, when I got the ball out wide near the line, instead of stepping inside I decided to hit the ground and slide in. But it wasn’t wet enough and I only made it a couple of metres. I tried to convince the ref I’d crossed the line but he knew I hadn’t. I got ribbed a lot for that.Learn more about Chris’s teammates at Sale Sharks… TAGS: Sale Sharks LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Mark Cueto Dwayne Peel Chris BellWhen Chris Bell made a move to Sale Sharks, he took some time out to have a quick catch up about his ideal woman, waxing, finally entering the digital age, and his ‘epileptic’ music taste. RUGBY WORLD: You’ve been at Sale a few weeks now, so how have you settled in at the club?CHRIS BELL: I knew a few of the guys here before I came – Magnus Lund, Richard Wigglesworth, Andy Titterrell, Chris Jones, Stuart Turner, Dean Schofield. It’s handy to know people because it breaks down barriers when you first arrive. Pre-season’s gone well, although I did twist my ankle and had to have a few scans to check the screw in my foot hadn’t moved.RW: Does having a screw in your foot mean you beep when you go through X-ray machines?CB: I thought I would, but I don’t. I was a bit disappointed, especially as it’s a big old one. It was put in when I broke my foot during last year’s pre-season and it’s actually three inches long.RW: Have the Sale boys made you do anything as an initiation?CB: I had to sing a song on the bus after the Biarritz pre-season game.

They damage any hope of a real recovery.” said Cllr Quinlivan.“Dunnes workers have been left with no option but to engage in industrial action in an effort to secure fair pay and secure hours. They, and the 129,000 low-paid workers in this state, deserve certainty about their hours of work and income,” he added.Limerick’s three Anti-Austerity Alliance councillors also offered full support and solidarity to Dunnes Stores workers during their strike action. Cllr John Loftus called on people to support this “important strike” by not passing the pickets and to stand in solidarity with the workers.“Dunnes Stores is a major, profitable company which is using low-hours contracts to maximise its profits,” said Cllr Loftus.Fellow AAA councillor Paul Keller said the strike was an important step in the fight against the return of 19th century working conditions through the spread of low hour contracts.“These contracts have been used by management as a weapon to punish and bully workers through the withdrawal of hours from one week to the next,” he claimed.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi gave the direction while hearing a petition filed by the Advocate Clerks Association. The bench took into the written submissions filed by the State Government wherein it is contended that out of a sum of Rs.5.00 crores granted to the Bar Council,some portion has to be set apart by the Bar Council for the benefit of the advocates’ clerks. The court issued the direction after the counsel for the State Bar Council submitted that the state government had not clarified the specific amount to be set aside for the clerks. Advocate Murthy D Naik appearing for the clerks association contended that an amount of Rs 25 lakh should be set aside out of the grant and it should be disbursed to the needy clerks at the earliest. As regards the issue raised in the petition filed by Advocates Association of Bengaluru challenging the conditions laid down by the Bar Council for the disbursement of the grant ,the court granted time till October 14 to file their statement of objections. The Association has sought to quash and set aside the scheme framed on August 26, by the State Bar Council stating that discriminatory conditions were imposed for the lawyers seeking financial assistance. Under the said scheme lady advocates, lawyers above 40 years of age and those enrolled after January 1, 2010 are not eligible for seeking financial assistance. The court has in its order dated September 2, said the scheme has to be a fair and transparent scheme, considering the fact that the amount of Rs 5 crore transferred by the government constitutes public money. Additional Advocate General (AAG) is also directed to address the court on the nature of the scheme. On the previous hearing the State Bar Council informed the court that 1163 applications received from advocates were rejected while 7844 applications were sanctioned and an amount of Rs 3,29,20,000 has been disbursed to the needy advocates out of the state grant.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Roy Hodgson takes England training ahead of the last 16 match with Iceland 1 Roy Hodgson has warned his England team that failure to start converting chances into goals will see them crash out of Euro 2016.The Three Lions were on the offensive for large periods of their three group games, but drew against Russia and Slovakia after failing to capitalise on their perceived dominance, and needed a last gasp goal to see off Wales.That meant England finished runners up in the group, setting up a showdown with Iceland in the round of 16 on Monday night.And Hodgson made clear that the time for talk about scoring goals is about to end.“I’m happy with the work they’re doing,” Hodgson said of his attackers. “I am just unhappy that the dominance is not leading to the goals.“Obviously we have to be better in that area and everyone knows it because if we don’t score goals we can’t continue in the competition. It’s no good.“You don’t get prizes for possession, you don’t get prizes for the most corners, you don’t get prizes for having the best of the play. You get prizes if you win.“And really our performance against Wales was no better than our performance against Slovakia or Russia.“Arguably in many areas it perhaps wasn’t even as good. But we won so that was a great game and the other two were bad games. That’s how it is. We know that.“And now it’s very simple: if we don’t win now, we go home. So we had better start making sure we score our goalscoring chances.”

Make a face. How do you make a face? We are all made with faces that can make unique facial expressions, thanks to unique combinations of subcutaneous muscles. Nature News said that humans have unique faceprints of 16 common expression-making muscles. We all have the same 5 subcutaneous muscles that can make us look angry, happy, surprised, afraid, sad and disgusted. But we have different combinations of 11 more muscles that allow us each to have our own idiosyncratic facial expressions. This was announced by researchers who examined 18 Caucasian cadavers. It means that all humans can express shared emotions important for social communication, but each of us can add our own nuance. One of the researchers speculated that this can be explained in evolutionary terms. Humans have been selected to communicate the same basic emotions, he said, but have differences to allow for creating relationships within social groups. He did not explain why this strategy never occurred to social bees, ants, schooling fish and flocks of birds.We’ll just ignore that little evolutionary fable with an expression of disgust and move right along. Facial expression is one of many unique traits among humans who were created like animals in many ways but with special features to express an inner spirit made in the image of God: intellect, emotions, will, love, personality, and faith. To communicate our rationality, we needed a voice apparatus appropriate for the sophisticated nuances of human language. For combined spiritual and physical intimacy, we needed skin instead of hair. For face-to-face communication and stewardship, we needed upright posture. For work, we needed hands with opposable thumbs. None of these is quite the window of the spirit as a person’s unique countenance. We have the most versatile bodies and faces in nature appropriate for accountable souls. Think of the importance of facial expressions in comedy sitcoms, vocal solos, plays and movies; visualize the clown or mime using faces to get a laugh. Perhaps you have taken a silly family photo with everyone making funny faces. Even humor is a gift of God. Chimpanzees and dogs and parrots can seem to comprehend fun, but try to tell them a joke, and no comprendo. Human laughter and a hearty smile is a joy of life that only spirits operating physical equipment can fully understand and appreciate. We have more equipment than needed to just eat and survive because we have a special role in God’s creation: to be His stewards, to love Him, and to love one another. Facial expression is an intrinsic part of our unique ability to relate to one another visually and verbally. That we each have unique faces and combinations of facial muscles fits the description of humans being unique individuals with a special role in the world. Look at one penguin and you’ve seen them all. Same for prairie dogs, antelope, honeybees, wildebeest, flamingos and any other wild social animal. Though specialists can tell them apart, other primates have limited diversity and expressivity on their faces. They can curl their lips into funny ways, and bare their teeth and scream, but have you ever seen a chimpanzee with an expression of altruistic love, faith, thoughtful contemplation, solemnity, gratitude or inner joy? The variety of human faces, though, is astonishing: just look at the faces of any crowd on the street or in a public event. And the number of expressions you can contort your face into in front of a mirror is equally astonishing. We often remember a face when we cannot remember a name. We can pick easily out faces we know from hundreds of strangers in a yearbook. Faces are put on “Wanted” posters. We normally take pictures of ourselves that emphasize our faces. Magazines and newspapers (except for certain kinds) concentrate on the faces of people in the news. We normally take pictures of people to emphasize their faces. This makes sense if we are individual created souls distinct from the animals. It makes no sense in evolutionary terms, or else you would see extreme facial diversity and expressivity all over the animal kingdom. What other animal invented FaceBook? The face is the interface for rational and emotional communication. “Face it, we’re all different” said the Nature News article. Yes indeed, Nature, face up to it. We can make faces because He made our faces. Go smile at someone and start a spiritual communication.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
