For Mako Vunipola “It’s about making more impact”

first_imgThe sheer size. The work-rate. The leadership. Everything about England prop Mako Vunipola is immense at the moment. This feature first appeared in Rugby World magazine in January. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS This feature first appeared in Rugby World magazine in January.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. AS RELAXED as Mako Vunipola is, one idea makes him balk.“There’s no chance I’d get in a ball pit!” the loosehead prop says after it is revealed we toyed with the idea of taking him to a soft-play area.“I remember Brad Barritt doing one of those pictures – well, not with a ball pit but it was with a bowl of fruit – and he still gets haunted by that picture today.”There is no savaging as severe as that from your team-mates, even if you’re a leader. And according to those who see his influence every day at Saracens, Vunipola is one of the most vocal players at the club alongside the half-backs and captain Barritt.Despite missing all of the November Tests with England, Vunipola is also considered one of the very finest forwards in the global game. In fact, in our last issue of 2018, Rugby World contributors named him the best loosehead on the planet. Why? When you talk to those who have played with and against him, discussion inevitably turns to work-rate.Related: Mako makes the Six Nations team of the weekIt is a key subject in the context of his journey, because not everyone rated the prop’s engine earlier in his career. It was much the same for his brother Billy.The pair had to change perceptions, and, in truth, their natural dispositions.Big impact: Vunipola for Sarries v Saints (Getty Images)“I think back to when he first started at Saracens and he had always been an unbelievable rugby player, but he had to learn how to work hard,” says former team-mate Kelly Brown, now Sarries’ academy coach. “Now Mako works unbelievably hard.“His stats are just nuts, in terms of carries and tackles. He does all this and then he scrums on top of it. Plus, he’s an incredibly skilful player. So he reads the game in a way most other props can’t. He’s got the skills and the vision of a centre, so if you’re opposite him and it’s a one-on-one, he’s good enough to run through you. If you try to gang-tackle him, he’ll notice and pass out the back.“And then when he hits anything it’s brutal; he is very, very powerful.”It all sounds exceptional. Yet while Brown mentions 21 phenomenal carries in a tough, early-season win over Quins, the star himself takes a sideways look at the notion of racking up statistics.Cocking his head slightly, Vunipola says: “You speak about the volume of carries and the work around the field, but it’s maybe about making more impact. For me, getting back into the game is a massive thing.“Whenever I carry the ball my intent is to bust those tackles and make those line breaks. Obviously it would be nice for me to make some 50-yard breaks every game, but I know that is not a reality at the level we play at.Chasing it: Vunipola dealing with an errant ball last season (Getty Images)“It’s very difficult and I know it’s not just about me making those carries. It’s about being able to function within the team. Those carries aren’t the be-all and end-all. Hopefully my team-mates can see I’m working hard for them. And you want to make sure that you don’t do 14 carries when you could have done ten carries and those were (better).”Something else that was levelled at Vunipola early in his career was that he needed to work at the scrummage. Semtex ball-carries were stunning but he needed to sort his ‘bread and butter’.According to established wisdom, you only learn by loading up on reps in the scrum, which is what Vunipola has had to do in a pro career that began at Bristol and has seen him go on to represent the British & Irish Lions in six Tests. And remember, he only turned 28 in January. One coach, who has worked with and against Vunipola at the top level, says the prop isn’t one to puff out his chest or make a scene during a scrum session. But he will grab you for a chat to clarify his objective and what to work on.And according to one Test adversary: “Mako’s scrummaging has come on a lot. He gets in a great shape and doesn’t ‘kick his hips’ as much – that is pushing hips out so you can get more of an angle on the tighthead, to bore in.“He doesn’t try to do it all himself, either. He is more patient now and you can see that with Saracens recently.”Lions allies: Vunipola with Leinster and Ireland No 3 Tadhg Furlong (Inpho)The loosehead considers the changes he has gone through in the pressure pit of the scrum. “I have just got more confident with it really,” he concludes. “When I was younger, I would get a setback in a game – a penalty against me or something like that – and it would probably take me a bit longer to recover and work out what I needed to do. Now, obviously I’ve got good people around me who can help, but also I have experience of so many games, so I know what I can change and react on the go instead of waiting two or three more scrums before changing things.”There are fewer voices calling for Vunipola to get more scrum experience under his belt these days. And he will get to renew some tasty rivalries during the upcoming Guinness Six Nations, including one with his Lions cohort, Tadhg Furlong of Ireland, in round one. Many agree that the Leinster No 3 is the pre-eminent tighthead in the game and is an integral part of what Ireland have achieved in the past few years.Then again, no prop ever gets it their way all the time and every put-in is an examination. So in Rugby World Cup year and after missing a promising autumn with injury, these games will allow Vunipola to wrestle with the best again.Related: Six Nations table 2019As anyone who has taken part in a tectonic elite scrum will testify, the processes used at the fault line of the set-piece have to be spot on. Asked about how hard it is getting rhythm within a scrum, Vunipola says: “You go through it all in your head, ‘Did I do this? Yeah. Did I do that? Oh, no actually.’ That’s how you try to figure it out. It all happens quite quick. That’s where the experience helps because with it you figure things out straightaway.“I’m lucky to have played with Jamie George for a long time (with Saracens and England), and we’ve scrummed together a lot. So if he feels like I didn’t get my right shoulder up or didn’t get my hips aligned with his, he’ll say, ‘Do this’ and we’ll work on it together.”So what’s it like at international level, when you’re changing personnel often?“You try to work out people’s tendencies, but they’re all high-class players in their own right and they’ll have their own way of doing stuff. We all try to read off the same hymn sheet. It’s difficult. That’s probably the hardest thing: cohesion. Because you can have the world’s best scrummagers, but if you don’t scrum as an eight it’s difficult.”Brown, who lives near Vunipola, says the prop is a very willing host off the field – he is fond of the Tongan way, his friend says. Family is everything for him and the front door is always open. Now a parent, Vunipola can show his gentler side too. Despite sometimes lingering at training, as soon as he is home he will take seven-month-old son Jacob off partner Alex Johns’s hands.Family ties: With mum Iesinga and brother Billy (Getty Images)If there is sport on TV – soccer, rugby, NFL, basketball – Vunipola will be there, remote in hand. But he helps with the chores too. Sure, he is particular about hanging up the washing a certain way or immediately cleaning and putting away used dishes. But by the same token, if Jacob is crying, he exercises patience. “More than anything I try to keep Alex happy,” he laughs. “If the kid’s all right, the kid’s all right! He’s pretty easy.”Of course, with most children under one, the mood can change quickly. Is Jacob like his dad with regards mood swings? “Pretty much, yeah!” Vunipola reflects. “He actually is. He has a bit of a temper and I think that comes from me.”Really? “I have a temper, yeah. I’ve got better at controlling it but the people that I’m closest to can tell. It’s the little things that set me off really. On the pitch sometimes I can lose my head, but I’m all right at getting back to focusing. I’ll just focus on the small things, like a simple task. So in the game I will go, ‘What’s my next job?’”Internationally, the next job is Ireland in the Six Nations. And work-rate, perspective and leadership ability have all combined to ensure the prop is a must-pick for England.It looks like 2019 will be colossal for this big fella no matter what.last_img read more

Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here From Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson For debris pick up, Orange County has initiated its three (3) debris removal and three (3) monitoring contracts.  Contract forces continue to ramp up to collect storm debris within unincorporated Orange County from public rights-of-way over the next several weeks. To help accommodate the process, residents should place storm debris along the County Public rights-of way for pick-up.  In addition, roadways, sidewalks, drains, fire hydrants and mailboxes must be kept clear of debris.Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonResidents are reminded that mixed debris cannot be accepted at vegetative debris sites. Additionally, regardless if they are having their debris picked up or dropping it off at one of the debris sites,  it is crucial that residents separate vegetative storm debris (tree limbs, branches and another organic debris) from storm-related construction debris (shingles, lumber, drywall, fences, etc.) and/or other household goods (appliances).  Debris other than vegetative will be collected separately; residents who fail to separate these types of debris may not have their debris picked up.  Furthermore, household garbage should never be mixed with storm debris.A “first pass” of vegetative debris pick up began on Thursday, September 14, 2017.  Vegetative debris (shrubbery, logs, limbs and stumps) may be picked up before construction debris.  Once this “first pass” is completed, crews will return to neighborhoods to pick-up additional debris as residents continue their clean-up efforts. The County has a website updated weekly that shows where debris removal is occurring and can be reached by going to http://www.orangecountyfl.net/TrafficTransportation/StreetsandDrainageMaintenance/ManagingStormwaterAndDebrisCleanup/EmergencyDebrisRemoval.aspx.Solid Waste is continuing with their regular bagged and bundled yard waste pick up.  Vegetative debris (tree limbs, shrubs etc.) bagged and/or bundled will be collected during normally scheduled yard waste collection days. Residents are asked to follow the specified collection guidelines: Limit yard waste to three cubic yards (about one small pickup truckload) per household per week; use your own garbage cans or plastic bags for collection; cans and bags must be 50 gallons or less and weigh less than 60 pounds each when full; cans must be waterproof with a tight-fitting lid and have handles on the sides; bundle limbs, palm fronds, and similar items with string; keep bundles three feet long or less; and limit weight of bundles to less than 60 pounds. Residents seeking more information may call 407-836-5515  or visit http://www.orangecountyfl.net/WaterGarbageRecycling/GreenClean.aspx.Due to rules and regulations of FEMA, Orange County cannot remove debris from homes within a private or gated community. Residents should have a representative of the community, or the president of the association or the association’s management firm, contact the County by calling 311 to coordinate pick up for debris.Orange County crews will not be picking up debris on municipal road rights-of-way.  Residents of cities and municipalities should contact their city or town hall for debris pick-up information.If residents within a community do not own the property they live on, such as a trailer park, manufacture home community or condominium building, the community is not eligible to participate in this program. These communities are considered commercial and therefore not eligible for debris pick up support.Residents also have the option of dropping off vegetative storm debris at one of the designated citizen sites from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily.  There is no charge to Orange County residents for the use of these sites (proof of residency will be required). The County will not allow debris disposal by commercial contractors or landscaping companies at these sites.  These sites may be busy, so residents are asked to be considerate of others when off-loading debris as well as following entry and exit signs posted at the sites.  In addition, bagged yard waste will not be accepted at the Citizen Drop off sites.Citizen sites are located at: Fort Christmas Park -1300 Fort Christmas Rd.; Northwest Water Reclamation Facility – 701 W McCormick Rd.; and Zellwood Maintenance Unit – 3500 Golden Gem Rd. For more site locations, residents can visit http://www.orangecountyfl.net/TrafficTransportation/StreetsandDrainageMaintenance/ManagingStormwaterAndDebrisCleanup/EmergencyDebrisRemoval.aspx.To date, 155,000 cubic yards of debris has been picked up between Orange County Public Works and debris removal contractors. At the federal government level, FEMA plans to reimburse Orange County up to 90% of the costs associated with its removal efforts.

New Horizons scientists were masters of the long haul – here’s…

Another three and a half years passed before New Horizons performed the furthest flyby in history, zooming past a Kuiper Belt object nicknamed Ultima Thule. Initially turning funding into the reality of a launch involved another five years before all that. Was it worth the wait? One team member calls it “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to participate in “a history-making event,” so apparently it was.Lurking behind the scientific excitement are questions about the nature of work that involves goals with very long time horizons, goals that may never be reached in one person’s working lifetime. A Washington Post profile of New Horizons scientist Andy Cheng reminded us that life happened during the long wait. As New Horizons made its three-billion-mile way through the solar system, Cheng’s kids grew up, his father and a brother died, a daughter married, hair thinned, health changed.What’s it like to do the kind of work in which the time horizon to accomplishment is so vast? Here’s what Cheng told the Post: “You just have to teach yourself: Wait. Just wait. Be patient. It’s a very long time.” Indeed it is. So how do people who thrive in these settings stay motivated?We’ll be here waiting for you in the morning… for years on end.Blake Patterson, CC BYMore than just patiencePatience is, as they say, a virtue, and we admire Andy Cheng’s copious reserves of it, but we suspect there’s more to it than that. The pursuit of long-term goals poses challenges relevant to professionals in a variety of work settings, not just space scientists on a Pluto mission. Many lines of work involve balancing short-term demands with long-run hopes and strategies, and the tension between the two has a lengthy provenance in the study of management among both academics and practitioners.Much is known about the psychology of goals: decades of research have shed light on how and why goals motivate task performance in all sorts of settings. We know, for instance, that specific, challenging and attainable goals motivate in the short run, and we know that short-term goals are more motivating than long-term goals. Very little of this work, however, looks at goals and motivation beyond short time spans.Until, that is, our research on how people stay motivated when goals take not just years but decades to reach. We interviewed professionals (researchers as well as administrators) in various fields – biomedical science, nanotechnology, astronomy, biodiversity and others – whose work meets three criteria: goals with decades-long time horizons, very slow progress along the way and significant chance of failure.A complex stew of motivationWe learned from our data that people mine several sources of motivation that sustain them for the long haul, some rooted in what is going on in the present, and some located in thoughts about the future.In their present circumstances, people who persevere are deeply interested in their work, exploiting opportunities to apply their expertise, acquire knowledge, and make intermediate discoveries along the way. A learning mindset is crucial, because orienting oneself solely toward accomplishing the task leads people to avoid or give up on difficult goals when performance payoffs don’t materialize quickly. Long-run motivation is also juiced by perceptions that the work alongside the waiting is challenging, risky, surprising and fun. Social and professional cachet matters as well: gaining recognition from peers, working with prestigious others, being first to the goal and ultimately having a chance to prove skeptics wrong.Someday I’ll attain the goal….Vern, CC BY-NC-NDIn terms of the future, individuals pursuing very long-term goals sustain motivation by envisioning possible futures that result from the work they are doing. This can include not just contributions to their professional or scientific disciplines, but broader impacts on people, societies and future generations.People find additional motivation by invoking symbols, metaphors and historical allegories to give life to these envisioned futures. The people in our study spoke of moon landings, the Wright Brothers, climbing Mount Everest and “doing it the same way Darwin did.”They envision not only impacts on others, but a sense of how they themselves may be changed by pursuit of the goal. These “possible selves,” as we label them, are motivated by the prospect of finding new truths, having their beliefs confirmed, overcoming obstacles and becoming known for seizing rare opportunities.Just as persistence isn’t everything, neither is money. Pecuniary rewards do motivate, of course, and the long-term goal pursuers we spoke with did mention dreams of a big payoff down the road. But the more common and emphatic observation we heard is the belief that they could make more money doing other things – a sense of sacrifice in the name of the goal. Psychological rewards are the important currency along the way, with a marked tolerance for uncertainty regarding more tangible payoffs down the road.Old-you to young-you: stick with it.People image via www.shutterstock.com.Regulate thyselfBinding together these various forms of motivation is what psychologists call self-regulation – the processes through which we manage our own actions, thoughts and emotions. Research highlights several ways this happens: balancing multiple goals, avoiding distractions, keeping emotions in check, being receptive to feedback, coping with failure, rebounding from disappointments.Being good at a job involving long time horizons is not just about being good at waiting; it’s about finding sources of motivation in the present you’re living as well as the future you’re envisioning, with advanced skills of self-awareness and self-regulation thrown into the mix.The New Horizons mission is a compelling reminder that ambitious goals with extended time horizons are reachable when talented people find ways to stay motivated for the long haul. These are skills one can cultivate – and there’s a bit of irony in the fact that long-term pursuits do afford time to get better at it.Masters of the long haul mark time not with superhuman patience, but with a variety of strategies that merge the journey with the destination. The long haul doesn’t feel so long when one is fully engaged. As one of the scientists we interviewed in our study observed, “Five years is the blink of an eye.”center_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Tuyen is a transfer student from Brookhaven College. Tuyen is a junior journalism major and sociology minor at Texas Christian University. She serves as the administration reporter for TCU 360. ReddIt Sophomore business major Heidi Nguyen said Rate My Professors is her primary resource for researching professors. print With academic advising going on, many students utilize the website RateMyProfessors.com to begin searching for professors and courses.The website is designed for college students who wish to look up a professor’s ranking or comments about the class. The posts are written by students who have taken the class.Adrian Rodriguez, a junior economics major, said he has been using the site for three years to get different aspects of the classes he plans to take.“I read the comments to see how the professor teaches, how the class is organized and the difficulty of the teacher,” Rodriguez said. He said he does this to get a general sense about the class itself.Rodriguez said he knew about the website and got recommendations from his friends who have enrolled in college before he came to TCU. He said some comments provide either valuable or plain insight, but overall he thinks the website is a reliable source.“I think it’s very reliable because students from the previous classes write about the professors and rate them,” Rodriguez said.Karlie Lucas, a junior marketing and entrepreneurial management double major, said she first finds out the classes she needs to take for each semester, then she looks up the different professors who teach those courses.“I’ll go on Rate My Professors and look up each individual professor to see which one is better or which one I could get along with,” Lucas said. “It tells you if they use the book or their teaching style or some people put how their tests are on there.”Lucas said based on the perspective of marketing, the rating system on Rate My Professors is similar to reviews of products.“If there’s more positive reviews, obviously I’m going to trust that more,” Lucas said. “If there’s negative reviews, I’m going to trust that more.”Junior actuarial mathematics major Isuru Perera said the website is still helpful even though sometimes the posts aren’t up to date.“It’s not always the most recent and up-to-date reviews you’ll see,” Perera said. “Nevertheless, it does give you an insight into how other students have seen their classes, how they rate their professors. Whether they’re good or bad, how they conduct the exams and homework assignments.”Perera said he uses it to determine the courses as well as the professors he wants to take.“I’ve managed to get some phenomenal professors,” Perera said. “I enjoy them. The reviews that I see on the website, most of them do reflect when I take the classes, and it’s going to be very helpful.”Sophomore business major Heidi Nguyen said that as an international student, Rate My Professors is her primary resource to get reference for classes and professors.Nguyen said she also asks for tips and advice from friends who have taken a course before, but her final decisions are still based on rankings and comments from the website.“I base my decisions on Rate My Professors,” Nguyen said. “I read the comments a lot, and most of the times I think the ratings on Rate My Professors are quite accurate.”Nguyen said she is also aware of poorly-rated and highly-ranked professors.Melissa Moreira, a sophomore educational studies and french double major, said every time she registers for class, she uses Rate My Professors to get a preview of how the professors teach.“I like to hear students’ opinions before making my decisions about what class to take or what professor to take,” Moreira said.Moreira said ratings of professors impact her decisions.“I would rather take a different class with a different professor,” Moreira said. “I’d rather get a professor that has a higher rating than a professor that has a lower rating.” Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals weeklast_img read more

Cameron LNG export facility achieves full commercial operations

first_img A rendering of the Cameron LNG export project in the US. (Credit: Sempra Energy) Sempra LNG and its partners have achieved full commercial operations at the $10bn Cameron LNG export facility in Hackberry, Louisiana, US.This was after starting commercial operations of the third liquefaction train, which was commissioned in May 2020.Sempra LNG, which is a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, said that commercial operations of Train 3 mark the start of full run-rate earnings under the project’s tolling agreements. The company expects the Cameron LNG export facility to yield around $12bn of after-debt service cash flows for its parent firm during the 20-year contract period.The first and second LNG trains began commercial operations in August 2019 and February 2020, respectively.McDermott International and Chiyoda executed the engineering, procurement and construction of the three trains of the Cameron LNG export facility, under a $6bn contract awarded in 2014.Put together, the three liquefaction trains have an estimated export capacity of nearly 12 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) or about 1.7 billion cubic feet per day of LNG.So far, the LNG facility is said to have shipped around 100 cargoes totaling over six million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG).Sempra LNG CEO Justin Bird said: “At Sempra LNG, we set a goal of building the leading LNG export business in North America. With Cameron LNG moving to full commercial operations, we are one step closer to that goal.“We look forward to continuing to work with customers and partners around the world to achieve their energy transition goals.”Stakeholders in the Cameron LNG export facilitySempra Energy has an indirect stake of 50.2% of the Cameron LNG export facility. Its partners in the LNG project are affiliates of Total (16.6%), Mitsui & Co (16.6%), and Japan LNG Investment (16.6%), which is owned jointly by Mitsubishi and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).The partners have embarked on a second phase of the Cameron LNG project, which had previously secured authorisation from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Memorandums of understanding (MoUs) were signed by the partners for 100% of the offtake capacity of the second phase without any change in equity ownership. The milestone was achieved by the Cameron LNG export facility after starting commercial operations of the third liquefaction train, which was commissioned in May 2020last_img read more
