Top Tips from the Fitness Factory

first_imgI value all the advice I received because it has all helped me improve my fitness! Pay attention to what you eat and give your body time to recover between gym sessionsCraig Pothecary Fitness Factory ContestantEat 2g of protein per kilo of your body weight every day, to help build muscle and recover from training. I would never have eaten anywhere near that if I hadn’t been advised toLucy Smith Fitness Factory ContestantInstead of spending two hours in the gym and working your whole body, split your training into shorter upper- and lower-body sessions and do them on different daysMetric Ikitoelagi Fitness Factory ContestantNow read the Fitness Factory Gym Rules Part I and Part II: Do different kinds of gym work to improve your strength and endurance. For endurance you use lower weights and higher reps. I hadn’t done that before.Hannah Brady – Fitness Factory ContestantYou should keep a detailed record of each session you do at the gym, so that you can monitor your results in different areas and ensure that you are making regular progress Do heavy weights on one day and more power and speed weights on the next. You do more repetitions on the power and speed days to build muscle as opposed to strength 2% dehydration reduces power by around 10% and affects coordination. Don’t train hard to improve your power by 10%, then lose it during a game by being dehydrated Fat-burning sessions are best done first thing in the morning. When you’re in a fasted state, your fat-burning potential is maximised. It’s best to do weights towards the evening Don’t underestimate the importance of nutrition. You only train a few times a week but you eat several times every day. Look after your body to maximise your performance Split weight training into upper- and lower-body sessions on separate days, so you can fatigue one part of your body but be fresh to train a different area the following day Work out a structured training programme and know what you should be doing before you set foot in the gym. Look at what you’re eating – avoid processed foodSquats at the Fitness FactorKarl Ramsbottom Fitness Factory ContestantDon’t eat things like bread, rice, pasta and potatoes before fitness training or matches. Eat more fish and vegetables, too. I’ve totally changed my diet after meeting Matt Lovell LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Eat frequently – every two to three hours, unless you’re asleep.

Your exact needs will vary according to your positionHuw Davies – Wasps Head of Strength and Conditioning BACK IN the spring 2008, Rugby World invited readers to apply for a place in our new Fitness Factory.

It has made me a lot more disciplined about my eatingJamie Folan – Fitness Factory ContestantThe nutritionist told me to eat more natural foods, rather than food which has been tampered with and processed. I am also eating more vegetables rather than fruit, and less bread. There is no magic pre-match meal you can consume to help you perform better. If your diet is poor throughout the week, it won’t make much difference what you eat before a gameSimon Jurkiw – Maximuscle Sports Nutritionist Emulate the hunter-gatherer technique – if it runs, swims or flies you can eat it.

Meet rugby cult hero Ben Tameifuna

first_imgCan’t get to the shops? You can download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet or subscribe to the print edition to get the magazine delivered to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. “I’ve been getting into the old crossfit!,” he laughs. “It feels more rugby-specific, you know. You’re moving weights under fatigue. Just like in a game where I’ve gotta lift, I’ve gotta scrum, I’ve gotta run and move bodies, all under fatigue. So it’s the best simulation I can get.”The son of Pacific Island immigrants, when Big Ben eventually decided to pull on the red of Tonga, he described it as a magical moment; a special mix comes from representing not only his country but his family, his culture, and importantly himself, on a bigger stage.In the mix: On the All Blacks fringes in 2012 (Getty Images)He has known men give up jobs, suffer time away from their loved ones for the privilege of playing for the ‘Ikale Tahi. And he certainly sees time together, speaking their mother tongue and fighting for one another as a privilege. He just hopes that as the world furiously debates a global season that more opportunities for Islanders are generated in major competitions.Wherever he goes, though, people warm to Tameifuna. And after the set-piece work, when they see his ability on the ball, even the added flourishes, something resonates with them. How does he feel about his cult status?“it actually makes me laugh sometimes,” he replies. “People will say stuff like, ‘For your weight you are able to run around and do this and that’, and I say thank you. I’m just me, you know! I’m one of the guys who will give anything a crack and I’m trying to be open-minded about everything.“I guess that’s just how I am. If you told me ‘you can’t’ about something then, as I said before, I will take it as a challenge.“All the other stuff is just fun. Don’t get me wrong, if I have the opportunity and they gave me the chance to slot a kick, I’ll put my hand up! It’s all just fun. I’ll challenge backs in kicking competitions and try fancy passing. And I enjoy other sports, like boxing – I’m sure it helps with rugby, for hand-eye coordination and moving your feet. I also did a bit of volleyball at high school.“Once upon a time I wasn’t always this big, man!”Charity bout: Facing rugby league’s Willie Mason (Getty Images)Fans in Bordeaux should love his energy and style of play. He obviously has the gravity. And he is willing to give up his time, saying he looks forward to having yarns with the shy, the young, the die-hards. He is a firm believer that what goes around comes around and it’s a two-way thing – if fans want to support him, he hopes to give more back on the field.In the past we’ve seen Bordeaux players squashing grapes on the vineyards for photo ops. Asked if he would take part, Tameifuna is all for it. But adds a direct message: “If I could say one thing to Bordeaux fans – I may be big and ugly but I’m not that scary. Come say hi!” Shout out: Ben Tameifuna with Tonga at the 2019 World Cup (Getty Images) There are several ways Ben Tameifuna could have reacted as the powers at Racing 92 stood him down from playing for being too out of shape. But as he absorbed the news of his unexpected hiatus at the start of the season, sitting in his coach’s office, something else rattled around the Tongan international’s head.Looking back he says: “I pretty much promised myself on that day, ‘I’m never gonna get back to that 160kg bracket ever again.’”Tameifuna is a big man. Seriously so. A hulking Hawke’s Bay product who won Super Rugby titles with the Chiefs in 2012 and 2013, he flirted with the All Blacks before jetting into the unknown of Europe – where he had never been before in his life – to take up a contract with Racing. That was in 2015, and before his wobble he racked up appearances until he was just shy of a century.Next season Tameifuna, 28, will be in the South of France, with Bordeaux. This, of course, comes after he mounted a comeback in Paris. But before all that, just how did he get to a scales-scaring 160kg-plus?“After the World Cup you’re just like, ‘Whoa, what a season!’, the Auckland-born tighthead explains. “We’d come off a big European season and then it floats around to the World Cup (with Tonga). To be honest, I just let my hair down (after that). I’d just gone through a big year, I was back home, I was just enjoying Mum’s cooking. There’d been a few nights out with the boys. Are you saying that when you’re back home, you wouldn’t catch up with your mates?Heading for contact: Facing Leicester in Europe (Getty Images)“To be honest, I couldn’t be bothered doing anything. Mentally, it had just been ‘rugby, rugby, rugby.’ For two or three weeks I just wanted to do nothing, because when you get back to France you know it’s going to be kicking on all over again for another nine months. And obviously, I paid the consequences. But I always knew when I was coming back that I was going to do the work, you know, no qualms about it.“Yeah, I (made mistakes), but as a rugby player it’s about how you react to it. It’s either you drop your lip and go home and have another pizza or you get into the gym and just get stuck into it.“When the coach sat me down and said they were concerned not just about the team, but my health as well, that sort of kicked off a bell in my head. It was like, ‘Maybe this is a bit dangerous’. But it was just about finding and retaining good habits.”Tameifuna accepted the move, saying he knew it was best for the team. If his mates were going to back him, the least he could do was dig in for them, too. Perhaps that is a lesson learnt after a time helping his mum in her orchard job, picking fruits after school. Maybe it was from his time with the Magpies, realising that as he packed down with Hika Elliot against Super Rugby stars he’d seen on the telly, he could cut it in this game.Champs in 2013 (Getty)Tameifuna is proud of coming back, shedding until he hit a playing weight of under 150kg and hammering through the match calendar. He explains that overeating is not an issue he associates with sadness or comfort, merely a domino-line of bad habits. In lockdown he has set his approach and he has gone to work, first in France and then in New Zealand where he is now.Sure his mother’s cooking still entices. The meal he refers to as lu – a heady mix of taro leaves, lamb, coconut and cream – a surefire pleaser. But he has got into a rhythm. In France it became a roll of waking up, doing cardio and gym, punching in some PlayStation time and then maybe another upper-body hit after lunch.For years trainers had tried to break him, he says, but all it took was for him to land on the right scheme, adding: “It’s taken me this long, but I think I’ve found a routine that works for me.” He laughs that after a few weeks of feeling good, he thought why not keep it going. In recent weeks, this whole-hog approach has taken him to unexpected places.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS We talk to Big Ben about life in France, his weight, representing Tonga and popularitylast_img read more

Located on Orcas Island in Washington, the Doe Bay Cabin bespeaks a keen attention to material economy and site sensitivity.

With two young children, the family chose eventually to formalize this affection by purchasing property on the island and commissioning Heliotrope to design a vacation cabin. Faced with a modest budget, Heliotrope chose a simple building form which could be easily constructed with readily-available prefabricated building elements, namely structurally insulated panels (SIPS). The SIPS afford the project a highly efficient envelope, a necessary feature in the San Juan Islands region of Washington. Save this picture!Structural DiagramThe design combines this rigorous approach to efficiency with several outstanding features, including a garden roof and a 19ft high by 22ft wide window-wall with unobstructed views down the Rosario Strait. The project features handsome detailing throughout, and holistically reflects both the spirit of the place and the Japanese and Chinese heritage of the owners. And with only 1000 square feet of living space, the project provides further proof that good things often come in small packages.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschniederProject gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / PRAUDArticlesScottsdale Museum of the West / Jones StudioArticles Share CopyHouses•San Juan County, United States ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeHeliotrope ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesOlgaSan Juan CountyUnited StatesPublished on August 18, 2011Cite: “Doe Bay Cabin / Heliotrope Architects” 18 Aug 2011.

The most characteristic part is the barn with its closing wooden structure and wooden cladding, which is a preliminary image of the anticipated extension.Save this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkyWe divided the required areas into three groups. We set the so-called night zone—the three bedrooms and the bathrooms—in the residential area to be preserved. The kitchen – dining room – living room area is complemented by an area serving common householding purposes, and is located in the barn area, having corresponding dimensions and mass. The extension connects to the preserved building by a light corridor link and the interior atrium to be developed adjacent to it providing light while subtly indicating the absence of the demolished stable. This is the entrance.Save this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkyThe main aspects during the design were that the refurbishment should take place with as minor of an alteration of the existing structure as possible and that the southern light obtained from the site’s characteristics should be utilised while also keeping in mind a cost-efficient feasibility. Apart from the restoration of the 4 original facade openings facing the street, we also did some interior works, roof refurbishment, and heat insulation of the exterior facade in terms of the preserved wing. We brought back the interior spatial perception of the barn in the extension.Save this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkySave this picture!Section SchemesSave this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkyWhile building the structure, we used reclaimed bricks and new timber; apart from these, we aimed to minimise the amount of new materials.At the facade installation, the aim was to highlight the clean surfaces and blocks. Since the original street side facade decoration had been lost during the earlier alterations, we chose a facade installation without any interspersion. We prepared the extension with a vertical board cladding matching the wooden cladding structure of the barn. This solution is pleasing to the eye and also plays an important role as a structural insulation against the heating up of the interior areas.Save this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkyThe interior areas are dominated by simple painted walls, wooden shelves and cabinets recessed at some places, and transparent decorative flooring installed on the floor slab. We aimed to treat the doors and windows on the facade as frameless living pictures on the wall. Thereby, we were able to develop a very intensive visual connection between the living room and the barn that had meanwhile been relocated to the end of the site by a crane; therefore, our heritage has become part of our lives.Save this picture!© Tamás BujnovszkyProject gallerySee allShow lessDodi Moss Team Designs an Ethereal Italian Pavilion for Expo Dubai 2020 CompetitionArchitecture NewsAnimal Shelter and Pet Crematorium Lommel / Collectief NoordSelected Projects Share 2017 Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Baumit, INTERNORM, ROCKWOOL, Bramac, Thermowoodmaster Houses Photographs Photographs:  Tamás Bujnovszky Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  134 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Projects House in Kapuvár / László Papp – plémühelySave this projectSaveHouse in Kapuvár / László Papp – plémühely ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913525/house-in-kapuvar-laszlo-papp-plemuhely Clipboard László Papp CopyAbout this officeLászló Papp – plémühelyOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationKapuvárHungaryPublished on March 21, 2019Cite: “House in Kapuvár / László Papp – plémühely” 21 Mar 2019.

Victory Park Capital Expands eSME Strategy With Credit Facility to Cap Hill Brands

first_img TAGS  Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Victory Park Capital Expands eSME Strategy With Credit Facility to Cap Hill Brands Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp CHICAGO & SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Victory Park Capital (“VPC”), a leading global alternative investment firm, today announced the close of a multi-year credit facility with Cap Hill Brands, a technology-driven consumer goods platform that acquires and operates e-commerce brands with an initial focus on Amazon-first brands. The credit facility marks the third deal that VPC has closed in the e-commerce sector since Q3 of last year, having most recently closed a credit facility with Perch, which also acquires and operates Amazon third-party sellers. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005471/en/ Cap Hill Brands was founded in July 2020 by Kevin Saliba and Jason LeeKeenan, two former Zulily executives who helped grow the business into one of the largest and fastest-growing e-commerce retailers with nearly 6 million active customers. The credit facility from VPC will fund new acquisitions of e-commerce brands that exhibit strong growth and have an established track record. “We’re incredibly grateful to partner with VPC given their deep understanding of the industry and breadth of the market opportunity,” said Kevin Saliba, co-founder and co-CEO of Cap Hill. “This comes at a time when Amazon third-party sellers and digitally native brands more broadly are in need of capital and operational expertise to help grow and scale their businesses, especially given the e-commerce boom throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.” “We could not be more excited to have value-add investors who believe in Cap Hill Brands’ mission,” added Jason LeeKeenan, co-founder and co-CEO of Cap Hill. “VPC’s investment will support our commitment to providing liquidity to brand owners who have lacked access to capital up until now.” “We are proud to partner with Cap Hill Brands, particularly co-founders Kevin and Jason, who have significant experience with consumer brands and e-commerce platforms and have already generated substantial momentum,” said Tom Welch, partner at VPC. “Cap Hill Brands joins a number of companies that are working to consolidate the fragmented third-party seller ecosystem and support small e-commerce businesses, and we look forward to seeing the company’s competitive differentiation play out in the market.” In October 2020, VPC provided a similar financing solution and partnered with Perch, a technology-enabled consumer products company that acquires and operates Amazon FBA businesses at scale. “Partnering with VPC has allowed us to completely focus on growing our business,” said Chris Bell, founder and CEO of Perch. “It is important to us that we work with investors who share our vision and are able to scale with us over time, and we are proud to have found that in VPC.” Victory Park Capital’s Outlook on the E-Commerce Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (eSME) Sector Digital marketplaces are growing at a rapid pace and are accelerating their market share gains over traditional brick-and-mortal retail. By providing better overall shopping experiences, quick door-step delivery options and greater selection of inventory, e-commerce has reshaped retail marketplaces and entrenched itself into consumer preferences. Increased internet saturation, social media tools to identify customers and the introduction of new payment technologies, including buy-now-pay-later financing solutions, have further accelerated the shift towards digital marketplaces. The Amazon third-party seller ecosystem is an attractive area for investment given its expansive ecosystem. According to Marketplace Pulse, there are 1.6 million active third-party sellers transacting across eighteen global marketplaces, generating north of $295 billion of Gross Merchandise Value annually. The global network of third-party sellers is both robust and highly fragmented, with 280,000 merchants generating annual sales over $100,000. The marketplace continues to expand at a rapid pace, with over 1.2 million active third-party sellers joining one of the eighteen Amazon platforms worldwide in 2019. “This ecosystem has become increasingly complex for eSMEs to manage growth, leading to many brand owners having considerable personal wealth tied up in one asset with no clear options for financing or an ultimate liquidity event,” added Don Richman, principal at VPC. “VPC is positioned as a value-add partner to the ecosystem through deep domain expertise, coupled with solution-oriented financing structures.” About Victory Park Capital Victory Park Capital invests in emerging and established businesses across various industries in the U.S. and abroad. The firm’s differentiated offerings leverage an extensive network of industry relationships, disciplined deal origination, creative financing capabilities, broad credit structuring and special situations expertise. The firm was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Chicago with additional resources in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. VPC is privately held and a Registered Investment Advisor with the SEC. For more information, please visit www.victoryparkcapital.com.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than April 19, 2021. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience or resources. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 3 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020 founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers. DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Fubo’s growth in subscriber and profitability were unsustainable past the seasonal surge in subscription levels; (2) Fubo’s offering of products was subject to undisclosed cost escalations; (3) Fubo could not successfully compete and perform as sports book operator and could not capitalize on its only sports wagering opportunity; (4) Fubo’s data and inventory was not differentiated to allow Fubo to achieve long-term advertising growth goals and forecasts; (5) Fubo’s valuation was overstated in light of its total revenue and subscription levels; (6) the acquisition of Balto Sport did not provide the stated synergies, internal expertise, and did not expand the Company’s addressable market into online sports wagering; and (7) as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages. To join the Fubo class action, go to http://www.rosenlegal.com/cases-register-2038.html or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action. No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Lawyer for alleged Santa Fe gunman looking into reports that suspect was bullied

first_imgABCNews.com(SANTA FE, Texas) — The attorney for the teenage boy who allegedly opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Texas is looking into reports that the suspected gunman was bullied, he told ABC News.Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, was taken into custody after he allegedly burst into two art classrooms on Friday morning, killing 10 people and wounding 13 others.Pagourtzis’ attorney, Nick Poehl, told ABC News on Monday that he hasn’t yet discussed bullying with his client, but Poehl said other students have indicated Pagourtzis was bullied by students and adults at Santa Fe High School.“It’s something that we’re looking into,” Poehl said.“This weekend Santa Fe ISD released a statement saying they had investigated the claims of bullying and found them to be not true,” Poehl said. “That was released less than 24 hours after the incident occurred. It’s not clear what the nature of that investigation was except that it is clear that they didn’t reach out to any of the kids that were on TV claiming that it occurred, so we have some questions about that investigation.”Pagourtzis, who has been charged with capital murder, was allegedly armed with a shotgun and a .38-caliber revolver, both of which appear to be legally owned by his father.“It does appear that the guns were kept in a locked gun cabinet or gun safe,” Poehl said, adding, “How he got access to them, we don’t know.”For Pagourtzis’ parents, the massacre “is very, very difficult to comprehend at this point,” Poehl said.“They’re as in-the-dark and kinda learning about it through the media the same way we are,” he said. “They love their son, they do not understand how this happened or how it could have happened, and they’re waiting for answers, too.”Poehl, who described Pagourtzis as “confused and scared,” said the motive may be unclear for his client, as well.“At this point, I’m not even prepared to say he knows why this happened,” Poehl said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
