They are hoping to reach the play-offs for the first time since they were crowned English champions in 2006.Quins, in contrast, have won only two of their last seven Premiership matches and are in the bottom half of the table in seventh. Joe Marchant is back in the starting team after his Super Rugby sabbatical with the Blues – and he’s tasked with keeping Tuilagi in check in midfield.Yet after the longest-ever period of time between Premiership fixtures it’s hard to know how teams will perform in the first match back – the formbook could be tipped on its head.After all, it’s more than eight months since Sale ran in six tries to beat Quins 48-10 at the AJ Bell Stadium in January, but the Sharks have won only once at the Stoop in the Premiership since 2008 and that was a narrow 16-12 victory six years ago.Harlequins team: Mike Brown; Chris Ashton, Joe Marchant, James Lang, Nathan Earle; Marcus Smith, Martin Landajo; Joe Marler, Scott Baldwin, Simon Kerrod, Stephan Lewies, Matt Symons, James Chisholm, Chris Robshaw (captain), Alex Dombrandt.Replacements: Joe Gray, Santiago Garcia Botta, Will Collier, Dino Lamb, Tom Lawday, Will Evans, Scott Steele, Paul Lasike.Sale team: Simon Hammersley; Byron McGuigan, Manu Tuilagi, Sam Hill, Marland Yarde; Rob du Preez, Faf de Klerk; Coenie Oosthuizen, Akker van der Merwe, Will-Griff John, Jean-Luc du Preez, Lood de Jager, Jono Ross (captain), Tom Curry, Daniel du Preez.Replacements: Curtis Langdon, Ross Harrison, Jake Cooper-Woolley, James Phillips, Ben Curry, Will Cliff, AJ MacGinty, Denny Solomona.No doubt you’ll want to watch the action unfold and see who has returned from the break in the best shape, so here we explain how to find a reliable Harlequins v Sale live stream wherever you are.How to watch Harlequins v Sale from outside your countryIf you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, like Harlequins v Sale this Friday, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Premiership live stream you would at home.Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.Plus, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Is Your Child Kindergarten-Ready?

first_img Previous articleOn This Day in History: June 29th, 1776Next articleHow to keep “ear-safe” this Independence Day Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Summer may have just begun, but parents who have children entering kindergarten this fall may already be thinking ahead to the first day of school. Although this is an exciting time, it can also be a stressful one as parents consider whether their child is fully prepared for this important milestone.Deborah Dixon, MS, CCC-SLP, director of school services for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), advises parents to relax—as most children will do just fine with this transition. However, she notes that a little dedicated preparation (in the form of real-life experiences as opposed to formal workbooks or apps) goes a long way.Dixon details four key skills that children need for a successful school experience—as well as four ways to prepare your child this summer in simple, everyday ways. This is an important topic, with new research showing that kindergarten readiness is tied to long-term academic success, and some teachers expressing concerns that kids’ skills are lacking because of too much time on tech devices in their formative years.Essential skills that are the foundation of kindergarten-readiness include:Communication skills—sharing one’s thoughts, wants, and needs as well as understanding the thoughts, wants, and needs of others.Social skills—successfully interacting and sharing experiences with peers as well as with adults. This involves turn taking, initiating and concluding conversations, and using appropriate gestures, facial expressions, and intonations, among other things.Independence and self-regulation—being able to complete age-appropriate tasks without assistance (e.g., washing hands and getting dressed) as well as being able to control one’s emotions and behaviors.Problem solving, collaboration, and following directions—knowing how to play with other children, work with other children and teachers, and solve the hundreds of small problems that may come up every day.Providing your child with occasions to experience the world with you offers important opportunities to enhance many of these skills, Dixon says. Here are some day-to-day activities that can be turned into invaluable learning experiences:Household tasks—Engaging your child in sorting laundry by color, size, and type of clothing; counting silverware as it is unloaded from the dishwasher; following directions (e.g., “Can you find the colander and put it beside the pasta dish?”); and practicing decision making (e.g., “Would you like to wear the blue top or the green one?”) all work on essential skills. Help children to be independent when getting dressed and brushing their teeth. Assign them simple chores to complete.Neighborhood walks— Compare the shapes, colors, and objects that you see. Use basic concept words such as in front of, behind, beside, and above, and talk about things that are bigger, wider, softer, and so forth. Ask your child to name something that they saw at the beginning of the walk. Name the kinds of trees and plants that you passed. Make up stories as you walk along, and have your child contribute to the stories.Reading—An evening ritual signals the end of the day, provides quiet time for parents and children, and develops a love of reading. As you read to your child, stop and ask simple questions that requires them to remember what was read, or ask questions that probe their thoughts. Count how many pages are in the book, and talk about the cover and pictures (e.g., “What is between the dog and the cow?”; “Which one is smaller?”; “Which is the most colorful?”). Stop and ask how they think the story may end. Draw pictures about the book.“Field trips” to the zoo, parks, and museums—Trips to these places provide a great opportunity to build vocabulary, social skills, and overall language. Name objects and describe what they look like and how they are used. Ask those questions of your child. Talk about how the animals feel, sound, and move; talk about what they eat and where they live (e.g., oceans, mountains, beach, jungle). Run, skip, and hop around the park and talk about those movement words. In the museum, talk about things you don’t use or see in your world anymore and how they were used.Dixon advises that if you have concerns about your child’s communication skills, contact your local school district to be put in touch with a certified speech-language pathologist, or search the ASHA website at http://www.asha.org/profind/ to find a professional. By practicing important skills, and identifying any potential communication problems early, you can set your child on a path to academic and social success.Reprinted with permission from American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

TCU drops rubber match 3-1 to Texas Tech; Frogs lose 2nd straight Big 12 series

Head coach Jim Schlossnagle made that clear after the Frogs issued seven free passes on Sunday.“Just horrible,” he said. “Just a total lack of respect for the pitching tradition of this program by our pitching staff.”TCU starter Rex Hill threw 4.2 innings of 4-hit ball but issued 5 walks and hit a batter on Sunday, giving Texas Tech plenty of opportunities to score in the Frogs’ 3-1 loss.As a whole, the TCU pitching staff issued 15 walks in the 3-game series.“Everything we are about is pitching and throwing strikes, and this pitching staff refuses to commit to it,” Schlossnagle said.Two of the three Texas Tech runners who scored were put on base by walks. After a leadoff walk and a double in the third, the Red Raiders scored two runs on an RBI groundout and a bases-loaded sac fly.Texas Tech pushed across another run in the fifth on a wild pitch, making it a 3-0 game.After outscoring the Red Raiders 13-6 on Saturday, the TCU bats were mostly quiet on Sunday. TCU couldn’t figure out Texas Tech starter Ty Damron, who came into the game with a 5.89 ERA in 36.2 innings.TCU finally scratched across a run in the sixth after a leadoff double by third baseman Elliott Barzilli. After a pitching change, Barzilli broke for third on a wild pitch and scored when the catcher’s throw sailed into left field.“Damron pitched really well,” Schlossnagle said. “We couldn’t get to anybody’s fastball, really.”The bullpen kept the Frogs within striking distance. Freshman Sean Wymer gave up two hits and two walks over 2.1 scoreless innings. Freshman Durbin Feltman followed with two perfect innings in the eighth and ninth.“Wymer and Feltman obviously pitched well [to] give us a chance, but credit Tech for how they battled,” Schlossnagle said.A two-out rally in the ninth gave TCU runners on third and second, but Texas Tech’s Parker Mushinski got pinch hitter Michael Landestoy to line out to right.“Really proud of Michael and proud of our guys for putting us in that position at the end,” Schlossnagle said.TCU is now 30-12 on the season and 11-7 in Big 12 play after dropping two of three to Texas Tech. The Frogs have now dropped two straight Big 12 series after losing two of three against Oklahoma State last weekend.The Frogs will head to Pennsylvania on May 6 for a 3-game set against Penn State. TCU starter Rex Hill gave up three runs over 4.2 innings on Sunday. Clayton is a senior journalism major from Mesquite, Texas.

Sigma Kappa to host 4th annual carnival to raise money for Alzheimer’s Association

first_imgWelcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU cancels offer to trade tickets for canned food Linkedin Flu activity remains high in Texas Grace Amisshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grace-amiss/ printThis Wednesday tensions may run high as sororities and fraternities compete against each other in Sigma Kappa’s fourth annual carnival.Teams of six will go head-to-head in timed and scored events such as sack races, inflatable bowling and even giant Jenga. Similar to any competition, the team ending with the most points gets the gold.But this prize is more than just bragging rights — there is a cash donation to the winning team’s philanthropy up for grabs.Although the carnivals overarching goal is to benefit Sigma Kappa’s philanthropy, the Alzheimer’s Association, it is always fun to see how competitive the Greek students can get, Tess Clausen, a sophomore nursing major and Sigma Kappa member said.“The winners last year were Delta Gamma and Beta Theta Pi, so they have a reputation to uphold this week,” Clausen said. “It’s a great way to get more involved in not only the Greek community but TCU as well.”Each team must donate $75 to compete, which is then donated in full to the Alzheimer’s Association. The monetary prize for the winning teams comes from the Sigma Kappa budget, according to Clausen.From 4 p.m to 5 p.m. sorority teams will compete; fraternities from 5 p.m to 6 p.m. and after that, it is open to any other students.Sarah Smith, a sophomore communication studies major, participated in the carnival last year as part of the Theta team.“[My favorite part was] representing Theta and participating in the games with girls in my sorority that I didn’t know very well,” Smith said. “Having the opportunity to work together and grow our friendship [was fun.]”Although Smith said she is not competing in this year’s games, she will most likely attend to watch the Theta team participate.Since 1989, Sigma Kappa has donated over 4 million dollars to the Alzheimer’s Association for treatment and research, according to Clausen.Alzheimer’s Infographic Venngage Infographics“Sigma Kappa chapters across the nation constitute one of the top donors to the Alzheimer’s Association,” Clausen said.The Alzheimer’s Association is the largest, private non-profit funder of Alzheimer’s research. Their mission as a chapter is to aid the association by providing their support and care to those affected.For more information about Sigma Kappa’s fundraising efforts check out their website.

HR delegates learn from mock tribunal

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR professionals took part in a mock employment tribunal at a seminar last week in which speakers Thomas Kibling and Professor Alan Neal acted out the role of witnesses in a case.Delegates at the day-long seminar in London cross-examined Kibling, an employment barrister, and Neal, professor of law at the Warwick University and part-time tribunal panel chairman.Earlier, Kibling told delegates a common mistake was the failure to communicate with the appellant to see if the case could be resolved without a hearing. In one case it turned out the former employee merely wanted the return of a rubber plant.“She had nurtured this plant for 12 years and she had not been able to retrieve it from her office. But no-one had actually asked her what she wanted. The plant was delivered to her home in a humidifier van.” HR delegates learn from mock tribunalOn 17 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.

Licensing for craftsmen would improve standards

first_imgLicensing for craftsmen would improve standardsOn 14 Mar 2006 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article In response to your news story ‘Licences for manual workers would do little for standards’ (Personnel Today, 28 February 2006), I would argue that there is a great need for licensing to be extended to other sectors. We currently recognise the skills and capabilities of the professional classes such as lawyers and doctors through minimum standards, but do not expect the same of our skilled craftsmen. Some people may believe that scare stories of industry cowboys are the exception rather than the rule. But recent incidents in areas such as railway maintenance, rewiring and care highlight the tragic implications of ignoring health and safety. While vocational qualifications are an indication of the standards and competencies achieved, they alone should not form the basis of a licence to practice. Experience and ongoing training, both in and outside the workplace, are critical in ensuring that skilled craftsmen meet changing industry and technological needs.A well-regulated licensing scheme for skilled craftsmen would reward training, improve workmanship and provide a level playing field for employers competing against cowboy operators.
