Stephen Ferris – The flanker to be feared

A development contract was put in front of me. I wasn’t entirely convinced – you see lots of guys who come and go, disappearing after a year or two.“I remember saying to my mum, ‘I can earn twice this paving driveways’. She said, ‘No, no, no sign it! Take this pen. Listen to me and sign it!’ I’m glad I listened to her because it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I thought I’d give it a lash for a season, played 15 games for Ulster and it snowballed from there.”Now that he’s restored to full fitness, Ferris has begun setting targets. “I want to help Ulster reach the knockout stages of big competitions,” says the 26-year-old. “There’s a Lions tour in two years’ time and I really want to be part of that. I’d never experienced anything like South Africa in 2009. I’d like an opportunity to be on another tour, but a lot can happen in rugby in two years.”This article appeared in the November 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.center_img Would you like to sign up to Rugby World’s excellent weekly email newsletter? Click here. Stephen Ferris gives Will Genia a bear hug, carrying him 10 metresEven his team-mates do everything possible to avoid the wrecking ball that is Stephen Ferris. One of Test rugby’s most destructive players, Ferris has developed a ferocious reputation that leaves friend and foe alike scrambling for cover.“Stephen is a special specimen,” says Ireland forwards coach Gert Smal. “He’s got natural power and explosiveness. One of the team’s jokes is to stay out of his way because he can hurt you! When he connects with a player, they really feel it.” In a highly physical sport that values power as much as skill, Ferris is among the hardest operators. He always breaks the gain-line and few are as devastating in the tackle – he clearly knows only one way to play the game.Ferris says: “I pride myself on good defence and carrying the ball strongly. I never leave anything behind. I put my body on the line as much as possible. Sometimes that might not be the right way of doing it, but that’s my instinct for the game. I give 100% and try to be as physical as possible. I enjoy getting stuck in.”Never was that more evident than in the historic World Cup victory over Australia in Auckland as Ferris was responsible for the game’s headline moment. Spotting that Will Genia had picked up the ball at the base of a scrum, he grabbed the Wallaby playmaker and carried him ten metres, with the rest of his Ireland pack in hot pursuit (video below). It was a critical moment that rattled Australia, who had just seen the heartbeat of their side driven into the Eden Park turf.“I’ve watched it a few times,” he says. “People have posted about it on Facebook and Twitter. It’s nice to look over but at the time I didn’t think it was much of an issue. I thought I’d only carried him one or two metres. It was important to get on top of one of their best players and Cian Healy was doing such a good job that the scrum had wheeled around. The referee put his hand up to say the ball’s out, Genia picked it up so I picked him up. It was instinctive.“My mum, Linda, will have that on DVD back home! It laid down a marker saying we won’t lie down easily. It lifted the crowd, it lifted us. When they picked me up off the ground it was a good feeling.”Having such little regard for his own welfare has taken an inevitable toll, though Ferris insists he has also been the victim of bad luck on the injury front. The most notable occasion was on the 2009 Lions tour to South Africa when he tore the medial collateral ligament in his right knee during a training session. It was early in the tour and the muscular Ferris was in devastating form.“That injury was the most deflating because I was in the mix and was playing very well. I was unbelievably fit and my body felt great. It happened during a collapsed maul in training and was bad luck. With the Lions we were competing for places and I wanted to be better than Tom Croft in training. You can’t leave anything behind and if you don’t give 100%, you can get injured.”Though the right knee inflicted the greatest heartache, it is the left knee that is now the main concern. Three operations, one of them this year, ensure it must be managed carefully and he misses one training session per week as a precaution.However, he has recovered well from his latest setback and says: “Whenever I’ve been out injured, I’ve concentrated on coming back stronger and that always seems to have happened. That’s more of a mental thing than anything. You know you still have the aggression, skills and physicality. But if you’re out for six months sometimes it can be hard to prepare yourself mentally to come back into it again.”Given the impact he’s had in the Test arena, it’s hard to imagine that Ferris was initially dubious about life as a professional player. “I left school when I was 16, more or less arsing around and living for the weekends. I was out manual labouring and earning a few quid. I appreciate what I have now when I look back at it.last_img read more

Rev. Lloyd E. Allen installed The Rev. Lura M. Kaval, a missionary of the Episcopal Church, as the Canon of Development.The Diocese of Honduras has been funded as a program of The Episcopal Church for over 150 years, “It is time we stand on our own”, Bishop Allen again reiterated during his Diocesan address, “with Rev. Lura here in Honduras, we take a huge step forward toward that goal.”Keeping with the long-range plan of the diocese and its commitment to being financially self-sufficient, Rev. Kaval’s, main responsibilities will focus on stewardship education, congregational development, financial transparency and planning, resource development, debt reduction and enhanced communication within the diocese and with their supporting partners.The diocesan budget was cut by a third after the 2009 General Convention.  Kaval will be assisting in the building up of the seven bi-lingual schools, working with the 52 clergy and 156 mission churches on stewardship education and entrepreneurial programs.   A former business owner herself, with a background in marketing and finance, she graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1998.Her ministry began in Diocese of Honduras in September of 2012 with the creation of the “Come and See the NEW Honduras” program, setting the guidelines for financial independence and self-sustainability by 2019. She and Bishop Allen have been traveling throughout the United States attending companion diocese councils and conventions sharing the program’s vision and goals for the last eight months.In 2002 when she became rector of St. Christopher’s Church Linthicum, Maryland, the congregation was depleting its endowment. Eight years latter the small strong church took great pride and ownership of it operating budget and was able to provide thousands of dollars from its endowment to outreach efforts in their community and around the world.She and her husband Richard Harlow are appointed missionaries from The Episcopal Church.  He will be working with regional coordinators in Honduras to support mission teams throughout the diocese. “The Diocese of Honduras doesn’t need a hand out-they need a hand up,” according to Harlow a former Air Force analyst.  “This diocese is full of wonderful resources and we appreciate the commitment of the people and churches in North America that are working side by side with us in partnership to become financially self-sustaining.”“Come and See the NEW Honduras!” exhorts Rev.

City Council ratifies Wylam as Apopka Fire Chief

first_img Reply Mama Mia September 19, 2019 at 7:51 pm  The Apopka City Council unanimously ratified the appointment of Sean Wylam as the next Fire Chief of the Apopka Fire Department at its Wednesday meeting. Wylam was previously the deputy fire chief before succeeding Chuck Carnesale, who retired on August 30th. Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your comment! Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate We got there at the council meeting at about ten minutes until 7:00 pm and as I went in first before my husband, and they had ice cream there in the hallway, and a lady asked me if I wanted a banana split….lol, I said, ” I guess, I better not”, thinking about my diabetes. It was tempting, and I was rather stunned that they had an ice cream table set up going into the city council chambers, and were serving banana splits…. Thank you anyway, Mayor Nelson for the ice cream treats. As we walked in, there were no seats. After awhile, we left, to go get some coffee, and decided we would come back, as the fire chief ratification, was the last item on the agenda. Wanted to see the big show, after hearing about the last council meeting, with the city attorney and Commissioner Becker clashing. I listened to the last council audio, and to me, it wasn’t what I would call clashing. I think Commissioner Becker had justifications for his questions, and the city attorney had justifications for his talk too, as the legal counsel. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Mama Mia Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replycenter_img If there was one thing that bugged me, it was the pastor, preacher, minister, whatever he calls himself, that gave the prayers before the council started. I apologize to him, but he sent prayers out to the fire department first responders, and the police department first responders, the leaders, commissioners, mayor, citizens, and others in the council chambers, but not once, were the city’s general employees prayed for. This is my one pet peeve, since my husband was a general employee, in the past, and IMO the general employees are treated like the red-headed stepchildren of the city. Sorry, pastor, I prayed for everything you said up at the podium, just saying….AMEN. I haven’t listened to the audio, yet, but I believe I didn’t hear any prayers for the general employees. Tongue lash me, if I was wrong…..LOL!!!! Apopka Mayor Bryan Nelson chose Wylam on August 29th after Carnesale announced his retirement on August 28th.City Administrator Edward Bass released this statement about the appointment: “We have selected Assistant Fire Chief Sean Wylam as the new Fire Chief effective Friday, August 30, 2019, at 5:01 pm.  In accordance with the City Charter, Chief Wylam’s appointment will be included in the September 4, 2019, agenda for ratification by the City Council. Chief Wylam has been with the Apopka Fire Department for 16-plus years. He began his career as a firefighter and worked his way up to his current position of Assistant Fire Chief – Training. Chief Wylam has several fire education qualifications, credentials, and certifications.  With the City’s ISO review coming up in the fall, Deputy Chief Ray Thompson will assist Chief Wylam with this before his retirement.” Although the Council was scheduled to ratify Wylam’s appointment on September 4th, because of the threat of Hurricane Dorian, the meeting was postponed until September 11th. On that date, the Council chose to postpone the vote until the next meeting (September 18th) so the results of an investigation into the Apopka Fire Department, conducted by City Attorney Joseph Byrd, could be fully analyzed by the Council before voting on the AFD’s next leader.Byrd’s report was given to the City Council shortly before the September 11th meeting in a draft form, and later that day released officially to the media.Commissioner Kyle Becker was the catalyst of that postponement, but at the Wednesday meeting, he was prepared to vote.“To go through my decision-making process… we have information, and I like to consume as much information as I can to make a full and complete decision that I feel is necessary for me personally, but then if anybody who approaches me on the street, or in Publix, or anywhere else… they know my process and exactly how I arrived at the conclusion that I’ve made. So I’ve had an opportunity to read the report since last week, and I disagree with some of the process… and we have that right to disagree. Would I have done the same thing? Maybe not. Do I agree with all the things that transpired? Maybe not. But what that report allowed me to do was see your testimony Mr. Wylam and it was your answers that painted a picture of who you are and how you understand the department, how you look at the department and so that information for me is valuable because it helps me to better understand how you… outside of a resume’. With that being said I can definitely appreciate people with alternative points of view. People here have alternative points of view. People have spoken tonight against this appointment. There are people I have talked to who aren’t in this room that are against this appointment. There are people who have spoken passionately and advocated on your behalf, which is admirable. My biggest challenge for Sean was knowing what his situation has played out to be. It’s not a perfect situation… how we got here. But knowing there’s people in your department that may not always be happy. You’re never going to please 100% of the  of the people, but it’s those few disgruntled people that do have some gripes… how do you address that? And we talked about that. We had a frank conversation, and you have embraced that as a challenge. I think clearly I feel where the council is going, and this is not the time for me to stand on the proverbial soapbox. I think what needs to happen is that we have a united front, just as a city in general. That we’re united in our support for what you (firefighters) do for our city and our community… and that we are super proud of you. Treat the department well and do what’s right by your predecessors.”Commissioner Doug Bankson was also in agreement with the postponement. In fact he saw a silver lining in the timing. “I’m happy for the delay for this reason… I think it removed the cloud and I think you (Wylam) deserve that. I’ve known you and seen you in operation and I’m very happy to see you stepping into this role.”Commissioner Alice Nolan was grateful that someone within the AFD and an Apopka resident was chosen as fire chief. “Something that I really love about Apopka is that we always look within ourselves before we go out looking because a lot of these firefighters have been here longer than I’ve been alive and that shows dedication. It shows they really love Apopka and I never mind when we look within ourselves and find somebody qualified and promote them. I told Chief Wylam that I talk to people and I heard nothing but great stuff about him. He is highly recommended by not only several citizens who know him, but the fire station members as well. I talk so much within all of our departments about morale. They all heard it and that’s what he’s looking to do as well.” Reply September 19, 2019 at 8:15 pm September 19, 2019 at 8:03 pm 3 COMMENTS Mama Mia TAGSApopka City Commissioner Alice NolanApopka City Commissioner Doug BanksonApopka City Commissioner Kyle BeckerApopka Fire Chief Sean WylamApopka Fire DepartmentApopka Mayor Bryan Nelson Previous articleUSA or China: Which Country is Better in Manufacturing Kitchen Cabinets?Next articleNeedle found in freezer at Jacksonville supermarket Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR  “First I want to thank you for the opportunity,” said Wylam, before a capacity crowd at City Hall and with dozens of firefighters in attendance who stood during the entirety of a meeting that lasted over three hours. “This doesn’t happen to everybody. I think a lot of it comes down to coming up within. I’ve always stressed to our people education plus experience equals knowledge. I started here as a firefighter/EMT and worked my way up. I’ve educated myself. I’ve gained that experience. That equals true knowledge for our fire department and now for our city as a whole. I’m proud to be a part of the Apopka Fire Department. And I’m proud to represent that moving forward. It’s not about one person. It’s really not, and I take that to heart all the time.”Apopka Fire Chief Sean Wylam You have entered an incorrect email address!

Renovation of an 1880 Boston house in the neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, one of the first “streetcar suburbs” in the US. The design preserves historical aspects of house, such as exposed wood ceilings, select plaster walls, the slate roof, and wood floors, while adding new elements, including a large open living area and kitchen, library, top floor dormer, bathrooms, vertical addition to side, and decks. The renovation reveals early building elements as it adds a layer of contemporary material assemblies and new ways of using domestic space. The project opens up a typical New England enclosed envelope to increase the relationship of inside and outside, stretching out a new skin that angles at each level to playfully engage with the surroundings.Save this picture!© Gustav Hoiland, Flagship PhotoThe interplay between old and new continues from outside to inside, at certain vantage points presenting what seems to be a nineteenth-century house, and at others, a contemporary one. The redesign features both expansive, light-filled open spaces, such as the kitchen and living area, the library, and the top floor, as well as more intimate ones, such as the study, bedrooms, and dining room.The top floor deck has views of the surrounding neighborhood and downtown Boston. Save this picture!© Gustav Hoiland, Flagship PhotoThe dormer, with operable windows at the highest point of the house, efficiently ventilates hot air in the summer. Thanks to extensive insulation, strategic placement of new windows, and the presence of existing deciduous locust trees, no air conditioning is needed in the summer, and heating is helped by passive solar gain in the winter.Save this picture!© Gustav Hoiland, Flagship PhotoNumerous existing materials from the house and site were reused, such as hundreds of old cobblestones found in the backyard for new landscaping.

Just outside Hamburg in the municipality of Aumühle, a new build villa has been constructed for a married couple. The aim was to create a sustainable building with a striking design language that could be lived in by the residents into old age without requiring renovations.Save this picture!© Piet NiemannThe unusual shape of the floorplan is a result of the topography of the site itself. A Z-shape connects the relaxation spaces, the living and cooking area, and the generously appointed garage that can house up to three cars.Save this picture!© Piet NiemannThe new build is accessed via a path that runs along the side of the road. The entrance area is split into two sections at an angle of 115 degrees. In the north-western section are located the private relaxation areas with a bedroom and a dressing room, two bathrooms, and a utility room. In the basement area that is incorporated into this section, there is a workshop, two additional storage, and utility rooms, a laundry room, and a small apartment with two rooms and a view of the garden.Save this picture!© Piet NiemannSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Piet NiemannIn the southern section, a kitchen with a dining area, a living room, and a study that can be divided into individual areas thanks to large floor-to-ceiling sliding doors continue the spatial flow. In order to be able to use the living room to the full even in old age, the whole area has been designed to be completely accessible. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the west into the extensive garden. The bend in the entrance area can be experienced on the garden side via a rounded pane. A large-format roof slat construction integrated into the canopy gives rise to a special play on the shadow in this area, both inside and outside.Save this picture!© Piet NiemannA special technical feature is the steel construction of the canopy that is attached to the concrete roof. This projects out by up to two metres and serves as a framing element that provides sufficient shade for the otherwise bright rooms. Blinds flush with the ceiling can be used to darken the rooms as required. In the hot summer months, room temperatures that are too high can pose a severe risk to health, especially for older people. To counter this, the whole roof of the building can be cooled using an emissions-free ice storage system, enabling the inside temperature to be actively regulated.Save this picture!© Piet NiemannSave this picture!© Piet NiemannThe elongated, single-story shape of the building creates a dynamic that is picked up again in the reduced façade design.
