England, the third heavyweight in that ultimate Pool of Death for RWC 2015, may well have Sam Burgess – 6ft 5in and 18st 4lb – stationed in midfield by next September. The tremors may be felt beyond Twickenham.All of which won’t bother New Zealand a jot. The world champions are doing very nicely as they are, thank you. THIS IS it – the last chance for England to undermine New Zealand before the World Cup. To dent their psyche. As the sides prepare to launch the QBE autumn series on Saturday, the stats are daunting: only two NZ defeats in the 29 Tests since Steve Hansen took charge, and one of those had a mitigating factor – a sickness bug that left the All Blacks running on empty at Twickenham two years ago.England are a better team now than then – but so are the All Blacks. It’s tempting to dismiss the Kiwis’ 74-6 canter in Chicago last week as an irrelevance. Tempting but wrong, because even against a second-tier nation like the USA there were lessons of shuddering value.Having trained flawlessly in the week, the All Blacks dispatched the Eagles with an ease that other nations could only dream of. A couple of the dozen tries stemmed directly from the set-piece, but most entailed lethal execution from turnover ball. It was exhibition stuff and one hopes that most of the primetime TV audience appreciated what they were seeing, even if sporting slaughter doesn’t sit well with Americans.You can watch all the tries on the video below. The last one (reel time 7:48) sums up what the All Blacks are about. Israel Dagg fields the ball 3m in from the right touchline near halfway and sends a long pass to Sam Cane in centrefield. Cane to Julian Savea to Dan Carter, who runs inside the USA 13, then passes outside to Victor Vito, who commits the last defender and delivers a back-of-hand offload to Savea to score. The move takes 13 seconds.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND9t63TUi98Choosing the right anglesThe try demonstrates the ability to strike quickly from counter-attack, awareness of space, the art of the offload and top support, Savea following his pass to score his 29th Test try.Best of all, it features two ‘post’ lines, from a back (Carter) and a forward (Vito). By running an inward angle towards the posts, the defender is ‘fixed’ and the support player is given maximum space in which to work in the outside channel. It’s a basic skill and in no way exclusive to New Zealanders – for example, Gloucester’s Rob Cook did it beautifully to lay on a try for Jonny May against Leicester. But when it comes to doing the basics, nobody matches the efficiency of the Kiwis (and typically, the best example of a post line I saw last weekend came from a French-based Kiwi Nigel Hunt, who took out two Toulon players in setting up a try for Grenoble team-mate Robinson Caire).Just as players must run a post angle when attacking the last man in space, so they should run a ‘flag’ angle when the attacker finds himself with an overlap but the defence already on top of him. In the video below, which shows highlights of a Hurricanes-Chiefs Super XV game, Chiefs wing Asaeli Tikoirotuma – now with Harlequins – has a ‘technical overlap’, with three attackers outside him faced by only two defenders (reel time 1:26).But the two defenders are less than 2m away. If he runs straight, or inside on a ‘post’ angle before passing, he or his support runner will be tackled. There could even be an interception. So instead, Tikoirotuma runs towards the corner flag, committing both defenders to tackling him and offloading to his unmarked support before contact. Try time. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS From the offloading of Read and Sonny Bill to searing running lines in outside channels, the All Blacks are taking their attacking game to new heights The full packageIt’s this ability to execute that separates teams at the highest level. The All Blacks are deadly when they have an overlap, but they also have a knack of scoring when defences have numbered them off, such as the tries by Dane Coles (v South Africa) and Cory Jane (v Australia) at the tail-end of the Rugby Championship.They ‘draw and pass’ better than opponents and they don’t worry if backs and forwards intermingle. In fact, Brodie Retallick is a major receiver (four times in the first ten minutes against the Boks in Wellington) whilst Kieran Read is the best offloader in the world – relegating Sonny Bill Williams to second place.Throw in innovations like their passing in front of decoy runners, to eliminate the possibility of being penalised for obstruction, and you have one hell of an attacking package.Big collisions in CardiffIronically, whilst the artful Conrad Smith, a sumptuous footballer but not a powerhouse, will start at 13 for the ABs on Saturday, 130 miles west Wales and Australia will feature two bruisers at 13. Both nations have traditionally favoured guile over brawn in the back-line but in George
“Legacy Foresight’s report underlines just how important charitable bequests are to the sector now and in the future.“Gifts in wills are the largest source of all voluntary income, and it’s by no means just the largest or long established charities that are on the receiving end. Growth is seen across the sector and this is testament both to the public’s appetite for leaving a lasting gift, as well as to the hard work and collaboration of fundraisers.“While Brexit and wider economic uncertainty may indeed have an impact on future legacy trends, the outlook remains positive with more and more charities benefitting from gifts in wills.” Melanie May | 5 November 2018 | News 111 total views, 1 views today Tagged with: Brexit legacies legacy fundraising Research / statistics The total UK legacy market was worth £2.96 billion in 2017, according to Legacy Foresight’s 2018 Legacy Market Outlook report, with modest growth predicted over the next five years and a risk of lower growth in the event of a hard Brexit.The £2.96 billion represents around 3.5% of all the money left in estates, up from around 3% a few years ago. Legacies now account for 15% of all fundraised income and 6% of all income received by British charities.Health remains by far the largest sector, accounting for 38% of total legacy income. Other important sectors are animal charities, receiving 15%, conservation and disability, each receiving 8% of all UK legacy income.The Legacy Market Outlook report also looks at the five-year forecast for legacies, and pinpoints rising death rates and economic uncertainty as the most critical trends that it expects to affect both the number and the value of legacies received by UK charities over the next five years.While death rates have been falling, according to ONS figures annual UK deaths will top 600,000 a year from 2020 onwards, climbing rapidly to reach 628,000 in 2026 and 708,000 in 2036. Based on this new data, Legacy Foresight has adjusted its forecasts of legacy bequests upwards, rising from 118,000 in 2017 to 124,000 in 2022.Legacy Foresight has also prepared several market forecasts considering the various possible outcomes of the Brexit negotiations. If a Brexit deal can be reached by the March 2019 deadline, it puts the outlook for the UK legacy market over the next five years as fairly modest with a growth of 2.4% per annum, or less than 1% per annum after inflation. This means that the value of the UK legacy market will reach £3.4bn by 2022, and cumulatively over the next five years the sector will receive £15.8bn in legacy income from a total of 610,000 bequests.With a ‘hard’ Brexit, or no deal at all, Legacy Foresight estimate that incomes over the next five years will total £14.6bn; £1.2bn less than if a deal is reached.Meg Abdy, Development Director of Legacy Foresight said:“In the short term, uncertainty is already having an impact on economic growth and on house prices – this, in turn, impacts residual legacy values. With residual bequests making up 85% of income this will affect legacy incomes overall. The difference between a good and a bad Brexit for the UK legacy market is not insignificant. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and issue new forecasts if required.”Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, commented: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

A free global face-to-face fundraising summit launches today, and is calling for submissions from F2F experts to contribute as panellists.Facing the Future is the second global summit coordinated by the International F2F Congress Committee and hosted by the Austrian Fundraising Association (Fundraising Verband Austria). The half-day virtual event will take place twice on Thursday 05 November 2020, both during the morning and late afternoon CET, to maximise access for delegates from across the world.The summit aims to provide an opportunity for F2F leaders and senior practitioners to explore the future of public fundraising in a Covid world and share best practice, and will present a global overview, exploring areas including new developments, best practice and success metrics.It is being coordinated in lieu of the International F2F Congress, which was postponed due to the pandemic, and follows the first Global F2F Summit on 3 June 2020, which brought together over 1,000 F2F specialists discussing ideas and strategies for reigniting public fundraising following lockdown.Günther Lutschinger, CEO of Fundraising Verband Austria, said:“It’s been fascinating to see how far and fast the face-to-face fundraising environment has changed in recent months. Fundraising in face shields has rapidly become the new norm, with contactless payment becoming increasingly common. But we’re also seeing some real innovation in the field too. With so much change, it’s all the more important that senior leaders in the field have an opportunity to come together and discuss new ideas to ensure that face-to-face continues to be the vibrant and vital fundraising channel that so many charities rely on.”Delivered in partnership with Fundraising Everywhere, the summit is supported by the European Fundraising Association (EFA) and UK Fundraising. Sponsorship from Formunauts, DialogDirect, ONG Conseil, and others means there is no charge for delegates.The programme is currently being developed by a panel of F2F practitioners and sector leaders, including Daryl Upsall (Daryl Upsall Consulting International & Daryl Upsall Associates) and Elsbeth de Ridder (Save the Children International).Delegates are invited to register their interest in attending and experts who wish to contribute to the event as a panellist are encouraged to get in touch with the Austrian Fundraising Association before the deadline of Thursday 1 October 2020.

I am currently representing too many excellent unemployed HR professionals.There are too few jobs for them all and too little flexibility in themarketplace to allow them to shift sectors. This is partly being driven by the narrow-mindedness of employers, with manypresuming that the laws of supply and demand are stacked in their favour. They want only HR people who have vast experience of their specific sector.But they ignore talent and performance at their cost – come the upturn, the warfor talent will intensify once more and an individual’s greatness and notsector knowledge will be the important factor. Meanwhile, for the unemployed HR professional, the key survival tactic isconfidence. It is critical to do whatever it takes to find ways to stay active– undertaking interim roles or consultancy to keep emotionally andintellectually alive in the marketplace. You need to seek independent coaching and counselling from trusted friendswho can help maintain confidence and a sense of reality. HR people are great atsupporting others, but notoriously bad at using their own support networks. This is also the time to consider external development programmes, seconddegrees, and voluntary work. If you need to toughen up on public speaking, getout and practice it. Think through industry shifts – if you have always wanted to work in retailthen now is the time to make the move, but be realistic about employer demands.Whatever you decide, take action immediately. People come to me who, withhindsight, would not have chosen to go on holiday on leaving their previousemployer. Instead, they would have thrown their efforts into repackagingthemselves. All those made redundant go through a ‘grief curve’ to varying degrees andHR people are no different. But while they are experts at helping othersunderstand it, amazingly they often do not spot the signs in themselves. You have to carefully balance whether you should take a job opportunity. Ina perfect world, you will only ever join an organisation where there is demonstrablepersonal and professional growth. It is hard to be this picky when you have a mortgage to pay, but the longeryou hold off from taking an unsuitable role, the better. It is so easy for HR professionals to get wrapped up in helping everyone elseleave the business, they forget about their own emotional health andconfidence. This is dangerous in the current economy and I implore HR people tofind time for themselves.
