That is where the Lions come in and Jones will be looking to have somewhere between 10 and 15 on the trip, form and fitness permitting and several in the Test team. Any win over the Kiwis will help dismantle the aura of invincibility the All Blacks have as England have not beaten them since 2012 and add to Jones’ data bank.As the coach said: “You have got to know your opposition – you have got to know what they like to do and what they don’t like to do. The Lions tour gives our players a great opportunity to play against virtually every player in New Zealand.” Jones already has Steve Borthwick on the Lions’ coaching staff to help him gather intelligence.Barbarians gamePlayed the day after the Premiership final so Jones will be without players from two teams, and blokes who make the Lions tour, but it is still a chance to see some unfamiliar faces in training week.Opportunity knocks: Sam Underhill may finally wear an England shirt in ArgentinaArgentina tourWith some of his big guns in New Zealand Jones can have a look at his other options. His stated aim of wanting three world class players in each position might be a bit fanciful but there is no point in not trying. England have two Tests in Argentina, on 10 June and 17 June, and Jones might rest players who he knows about and who don’t make the Lions trip so some senior players could get the summer off.Last time England went to Argentina, in 2013, the Lions were also on tour and Stuart Lancaster, yes him, gave internationals debuts to, amongst others, Billy Vunipola, Jonny May and Marland Yarde. Joe Marler, Courtney Lawes, Tom Wood, Jonathan Joseph, Mike Brown and Joe Launchbury were all on that trip and are all still in the mix.They won those two Test matches 32-3 and 51-26 and Jones will be after something similar and to see some new talent coming through. He could have a proper look at Bath’s new boy Sam Underhill at last, Wasps’ Sam Jones, who has been injured, plus players like Mike Haley of Sale, Don Armand of Exeter and Dan Robson, another Wasp, who toured South Africa with the Saxons last summer.Sparring partners: Australia will revisit Twickenham in the AutumnAutumn internationals With 2018 nearly on us, when England will tour South Africa in the summer, Jones will expect three wins against Argentina, Australia and Samoa to round off the year in style. The team could look very different by then though and if he has got nine, or even10, Test wins out of 10 his status as a rugby messiah will remain undiminished. Eddie Jones has said there will be a few bumps in the road for England before they hit the World Cup in 2019. Is the wily Aussie just preparing England fans for a fall? Calling the shots: Eddie Jones knows his squad will be marked men LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Eddie Jones set the bar high in his first calendar year in charge with a first Grand Slam in 13 years, a whitewash against the Wallabies down under and 13 wins on the spin all told so he has been quick to dampen expectations.In the 13 games in 2016 England won three – against Scotland, Wales and Australia in Sydney, by seven points or less. Sooner or later you are going to come out on the wrong end of one of those….or are you?So what would make a successful 2017 for the England head coach and where might the bumps in the road come?What is coming up?England have the Six Nations, a game against the Barbarians on 28 May, a two-Test tour of Argentina and autumn internationals against Argentina, Australia and Samoa – that is 10 capped internationals for Jones to get his teeth into. Eight or nine wins out of 10, plus a decent run-out against the Baa-Baas, should keep him happy but the first defeat, if one comes, is bound to be painful but, as he keeps saying, it is better to lose one now than in the knock-out stages of the World Cup.Sweet memories: England picked up their first Grand Slam in 13 years in ParisSix NationsEngland’s Six Nations campaign kicks off against France, at Twickenham on 4 February, and Jones is behind the eight ball already with the amount of injuries he has to contend with. The Aussie loves talking about casualties being opportunities for other players to come in but even he must be worried and England’s much vaunted strength in depth is about to be tested. On the plus side Maro Itoje, Jack Nowell, James Haskell and Anthony Watson, all missing in the autumn are back in the frame so Jones would expect to knock over France at home.England’s other games at Twickenham are against Italy and Scotland and the boss would also fancy his chances of winning those – the Italians have never beaten England and Scotland have not won at Twickenham since 1983.But trips to Cardiff and Dublin could be entirely different matters. England have a decent record at the Millennium Stadium, they have won five out of 10 there since 2001, and two out of the last four including a 21-16 victory in 2015. But Wales will be waiting and are probably sick to death of hearing about the Jones Revolution east of the Severn.But if the cards fall the right way England could head to Dublin on the final Saturday of the tournament with a Grand Slam on the line for both teams. One bookmaker has England at 8/11 for the title and Ireland 5/2 – it feels a lot closer than that. If Jones pulls off another title, let alone a Grand Slam, he can give himself a pat on the back but from this range four out of five wins, even with three games at home, would be good effort.Front of the queue: Maro Itoje is expected to lead England’s Lions contingentBritish & Irish Lions selectionJones’ England will only face the All Blacks once before the 2019 World Cup and they need as much exposure as they can get to the best team in the game. Of the 23 who were picked to play Australia at the end of the autumn only 10 had played a Test in New Zealand and Jones need get more miles into them against the world champions, the only problem is he can’t do it himself.

The southernmost region of the district had the least rainfall, with Osceola, Indian River and the southern half of Brevard County receiving less than one inch during the month.Despite experiencing below-average precipitation, 12-month rainfall totals are still above average throughout the district due to the high rainfall totals of last summer and Hurricane Irma. Districtwide, the total is eight inches above average. However, the central region, including Seminole, Orange, and Osceola counties, is now approaching the long-term annual average.Indian River and Osceola counties received the least amount of rain for the month, with rainfall totals 2.5 inches below average.Marion and Alachua counties were only slightly below average, with a departure of 0.45 inches.The Keetch-Byram Drought Index shows that Osceola County is approaching conditions that are favorable for a wildfire.About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida.

He is handing out leaflets with the same message. Not surprisingly, many people took him to task for his offensive message, with some challenging him for his attitude to people affected by poverty.Fuck the Poor campaign by The Pilion TrustThe man then flipped his sign over to read ‘Help the poor’, and he held out a collecting tin, inviting people to donate.The charity reports that “this time people completely ignored him”.Passers-by confront the ‘campaigner’The point of the campaign was that plenty of people care enough about poverty, enough to challenge someone on the streets. Yet, far fewer people were prepared to make a donation to help alleviate poverty. The campaign message is therefore: “We know you care. Please care enough to give.”The film was published on YouTube yesterday and has already been viewed more than 227,000 times. It will be released in cinemas later this month. 136 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 135 total views, 1 views today Howard Lake | 8 April 2014 | News Savvas Panas, the Chief Executive of The Pilion Trust, said:“As a charity, we have been severely affected by the nationwide decrease in charitable donations (20%) and Government cuts (60%).“We understand that some may be shocked by this footage. We are more offended however, that people across the United Kingdom are living in adverse poverty.”Says Publicis ECD Andy Bird explained: Advertisement “The Pilion Trust is a small front line charity without the budget to make itself heard in paid-for media, and also loses out on High Street donations, so we helped them to make a film that highlighted the discrepancy between peoples’ attitude when confronted with injustice and bigotry about poverty, and then their apathy when asked directly to help do something about it – donate.”Do shock tactics like this work anymore?

The regime continues to harass bloggers, deal out unfair detentions and ill-treat prisoners of opinion as it refuses to tolerate any news outside its control. Cautious improvements introduced since Raúl Castro assumed the presidency in February 2008 stall when it comes to human rights.Havana has never ratified as it promised the UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, that includes free expression, which was signed at the official handover of power two years ago. Normalisation of relations with Cuba promoted by the Spanish presidency of the European Union should not be at the price of skating over fundamental freedoms. There has been no humanitarian gesture towards journalists arrested during the “black spring” of March 2003, including Ricardo González Alfonso, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison. The Reporters Without Borders’ correspondent and founder of the magazine De Cuba, has health problems, particularly lung disease, received treatment only on 26 January after a wait of one month. Despite his poor health, he is still being held in a cell in Combinado del Este prison in Havana. Another “black spring” prisoner who was also sentenced to 20 years in prison, Juan Carlos Herrera Acosta, of the Agencia de Prensa Libre Oriental (APLO) news agency, recently spoke out against the ill-treatment and deprivation of food suffered by himself and his fellow prisoners (see the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U–MTX5lwQ). Doctor and contributor to dissident media, Darsi Ferrer, who has been in jail for six months, was handcuffed and beaten up in his cell. Bloggers and Internet users are also targeted for repression. Two students were expelled last month for carrying out “unauthorised” journalistic work. Darío Alejandro Paulino Escobar was excluded from Havana University for creating a page on social networking site Facebook, containing the minutes of a meeting of the Young Communists’ Union (UJC) (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?v=wall&gid=93444203329). The daughter of political prisoner, Félix Navarro, Saylí Navarro was expelled from Matanzas University for her work as a freelance journalist. State security police on 6 November 2009 brutally assaulted bloggers Yoani Sánchez, creator of the Generación Y platform (http://www.desdecuba.com/generaciony/), and Orlando Luis Pardo, on the eve of a demonstration. A third blogger, Luis Felipe Rojas, was arrested twice in December and placed under house arrest.

Pray, Jr., president and CEO of Operation HomefrontThe Five Star Conference’s annual Keys for Life reception on Monday saw Five Star’s Lifetime Achievement award bestowed upon two recipients: the late Robert Klein of Safeguard Properties who was posthumously recognized for his contributions to the industry and Caliber Home Loans’ Marion McDougall.An industry veteran with more than 25 years of financial services experience in the U.S. and internationally, McDougall has worked in mortgage and retail banking with a particular emphasis on mortgage servicing, business development, and post-closing. She currently serves as EVP, Chief Loan Administration Officer for Caliber Home Loans.While accepting the award, McDougall said that the industry had come a long way, battling the cyclical nature of the housing and mortgage business as well as the regulatory changes and pressure. “I challenge us all to continue to think outside of the box, and about our industry from the perspective of our customers not only from a compliance perspective,” she told the audience.McDougall said that it was interesting to see how many of the technological advances that were envisioned 18 years ago had been realized today. “It is even more interesting, however, how many opportunities the technologies present that the mortgage industry has not yet taken advantage of,” she said. “We must continue to act like mortgage bankers and innovate by leveraging the ever-expanding toolkit available to us.”Robert Klein (1953-2018), founded Safeguard Properties in 1990 and built it into the largest national mortgage field services company in the U.S. After stepping down as CEO in 2010, Klein’s ingenuity continued with the creation of Community Blight Solutions, a company focused on eliminating urban blight. Klein was also Founder and Chairman of SecureView and RIK Enterprises.Receiving the award on behalf of Klein’s family and Safeguard Properties, Alan Jaffa, CEO Safeguard Properties and Klein’s son-in-law said that Klein was an integral part of making the industry what it is today. “Robert was always the first to step in and tackle the issues head-on. He brought the industry together to open up the dialogue, which often led to significant change. He pushed the industry to be different and better every day,” Jaffa said. “Along the way, Robert wasn’t worried about the financial impact of these changes. He would take the loss because he was more concerned about doing what was right–for the property and the community.”The Keys for Life event was capped by the annual tradition that gives it its name: the presentation of mortgage-free homes to five United States military veterans and their families, courtesy of JPMorgan Chase, Auction.com, and Operation Homefront. Acknowledging the commitment of the sponsors to this initiative, Ed Delgado, President, and CEO of the Five Star Institute said that JPMorgan Chase would be gifting their 1,000th mortgage-free home to a veteran in November, and that gift was facilitated by Operation Homefront.“This is the eighth year that the Five Star Institute has had the privilege of facilitating the presentation of mortgage-free homes to veterans,” Delgado said. “Every time I have the privilege of speaking with a veteran, I’m struck by the measure of commitment that enables these brave men and women to dedicate their lives to the service of protecting our nation. They deserve our deepest gratitude and respect.”Recognizing Operation Homefront’s initiatives to help veterans and their families transition successfully to their local communities, Ali Haralson, Chief Business Development Officer, Auction.com presented a check of $50,000 to the organization. This is the seventh check of this denomination that Operation Homefront has received from the real estate auction company.“At Operation Homefront, our mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities that they’ve worked so hard to protect,” said Brig Gen (ret) John I. Pray, Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront. “The good news is we offer a variety of impactful programs that allow us to accomplish our important work.” One such program is the Homes on the Homefront program through which the organization awards mortgage-free homes. “At the Five Star Conference’s Keys For Life reception, we have an opportunity to award homes to a very special and deserving group of our fellow citizens who have done so much for all of us,” Pray said. “This year, five amazing military families will receive homes that will help them transition successfully to their local communities.”This year’s Military Hero Home Recipients included Army Specialist Ricky Dibble, from Grand Blanc, Michigan; Marine Staff Sergeant Oscar Gutierrez, from Darrien, Illinois; Army Specialist Hicham Ouafi, from Middletown, New York; Army Sergeant Edward Poe, from Smithfield, North Carolina; and Army Sergeant Tamarra Stewart, Belcamp, Maryland.The evening ended with a soulful concert by American singer, songwriter, actress and author, LeAnn Rimes, but before that the audience bid with gusto for five guitars signed by the artiste, the proceeds of which will go to Operation Homefront’s initiatives for veterans.

Poweshiek County Sheriffs Office(BROOKLYN, Iowa) — Slain jogger Mollie Tibbetts and her alleged killer lived in the same rural Iowa town but it’s unclear whether they knew each other, investigators say.Either way, “there was something that drew him to her,” Mitch Mortvedt of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation told ABC News Wednesday.Tibbetts, a 20-year-old rising sophomore at the University of Iowa, disappeared the evening of July 18 while jogging in the rural farming town of Brooklyn, a close-knit community of about 1,500 residents.“Our hearts are broken,” her family said in a statement. “We thank all of those from around the world who have sent their thoughts and prayers for our girl. We know that many of you will join us as we continue to carry Mollie in our hearts forever.”The college student’s body was found in a farm field on Tuesday.A first-degree murder charge was filed Tuesday against 24-year-old Cristhian Rivera, an undocumented immigrant, Rick Rahn of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said. An immigration hold was also filed against Rivera.He made an initial court appearance on Wednesday and is due to return to court on Aug. 31. Rivera has not entered a plea. When asked if he had anything to say, Rivera, through an interpreter, said “no.”Bond for Rivera was set at $5 million, cash only.After Tibbetts vanished July 18, and her disappearance turned from days into weeks, federal and state investigators joined the search in the small town.“Ultimately, what led us to Mr. Rivera was surveillance video from a residence here in the community of Brooklyn,” Mortvedt said.The video was found late last week, Mortvedt said, and “investigators went through the video and it took hours and hours and hours, frame by frame … and eventually saw Mollie.”The video showed Tibbetts jogging and Rivera’s car going by, officials said, and Rivera was tracked down by investigators Monday.In an interview, Rivera told authorities he saw Tibbetts running, got out of his car and ran alongside of her, Rahn said.Rivera said Tibbetts grabbed her phone and said, “I’m gonna call the police,” according to an arrest affidavit.Rivera told authorities he then panicked, got mad and “blocked” his “memory,” and didn’t remember anything after that until he reached an intersection, according to the affidavit.Rivera said he then drove to a field entrance and into a cornfield driveway, before realizing he had Tibbetts in the trunk, the affidavit said.Rivera said he went to get the young woman out of the trunk and saw blood on the side of her head, according to the affidavit.Rivera then said he dragged the college student from his car to a secluded part of a cornfield and left her in corn leaves, face-up, the arrest affidavit stated.Rivera led authorities to Tibbetts’ body, according to Rahn.An autopsy will be performed Wednesday.“A tragic end,” Mortvedt told ABC News. “All of us were hoping for a much better outcome for Mollie and her family.”“It’s every parents worst nightmare,” family friend Linda Safir told ABC station KGO in San Francisco.“So sad, so wrong,” Safir said. “She had so much to give.”“Mollie was a sweet girl,” added Katie Murphy, principal at the Corpus Christi School where Tibbetts was a former student. “The best gift we can give is to be a little like Mollie today.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

ABC NewsBY: DANIEL MANZO, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — A new winter storm is beginning to develop in the southern high plains this morning and it will bring some snow across Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi over the next 36 hours.The very beginnings of this storm brought some snow across parts of New Mexico and Colorado on Saturday.While snow amounts were relatively light — locally 1 to 2 inches — it was enough to make roads slippery and cause spinouts and accidents in parts of Colorado Springs.The storm is currently bringing some snow across the Texas and Oklahoma panhandle and as the storm moves east across Texas today, a couple of heavy bands of snow will develop across parts of Central Texas.Dangerous travel conditions are expected in parts of the state, especially near Abilene, where snowfall rates could exceed 1 inch per hour.As the storm moves across the eastern half of Texas, the system will meet some mild air and there will be rain and snow mixed across the region which should hold down accumulations in Dallas and Waco.However, there should be enough snow to cause slippery roads with locally 1 to 3 inches of snow and the best chance for accumulation well outside the city itself.Some of the heavy snow might have a chance to accumulate in eastern Texas after sunset with locally over 3 inches of snow possible in locations such as Lufkin.On Monday morning, snow will be possible across parts of Louisiana and Mississippi and the National Weather Service is reporting the last time more than 2 inches of snow was reported in Shreveport was in 2015, and the last time there was a good measureable snow in the city overall was in 2018.It is important to note that this storm will fall apart as it reaches the Southeast with little impact expected by Tuesday and Wednesday.Overall, the weather pattern is fairly quiet across much of the U.S. while the Northeast will have a cold January morning with wind chills in the teens and 20s as winds in the region begin to subside.On the West Coast, several storms lined up across the Pacific will move towards the Northwest over the next few days which should add to rainfall totals and snow totals in the region.One of those storms today will help waves to exceed 30 feet in some parts of the West Coast of the U.S. as high surf advisories have been issued for nearly the entire western U.S. coast line as a result.For those that enjoy winter surfing, some spots — especially in California — could see excellent surfing conditions.In Southern California there could be some brief critical fire conditions due to dry gusty offshore winds that could exceed 50 mph at times.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Attention-grabbing marketingAccording to the Property Academy’s Home Moving Trends Survey, 2013, nine out of ten potential vendors read the printed materials given to them by prospective estate agents, illustrating just how valuable print continues to be.Sarah Kemp, Marketing Manager at Ravensworth, a print and marketing service provider, said, “It is not always possible (for agents) to meet all of the decision makers at the point of valuation and there is a lot of information to impart. Therefore, the printed materials that are left behind become an indispensable reference point for vendors.”Various studies, according to Kemp, show that print remains an important part of the marketing mix because reading words on paper versus pixels on a screen stimulates a “deeper reading experience” and therefore “greater retention”.She continued, “Well designed, personalised, hard copy newsletters and lifestyle magazines provide an attention grabbing alternative to digital communications. With so much information available, achieving cut-through can be difficult and print can be more effective in getting the message across than digital communications.”Reaching your target marketWhen it comes to lead generation, targeted leaflet drops in the form of ‘recently sold in your area’ flyers continue to deliver good results for agents, according to Sarah Kemp, Marketing Manager at Ravensworth. “Direct mail can be extremely effective when it comes to building and sustaining an agency’s brand awareness,” she says.Newspapers and magazines can also be extremely effective in reaching out to local people in order to help estate agents find new customers and generate fresh business, reports Mark Burgess, Director at Iceberg Digital.He commented, “As most agents know, local newspapers and flyers are more important for attracting sellers rather than buyers and consumers do still browse the local newspaper and then ask the agents round for a valuation, although in much smaller numbers than in previous years.”“If you have an estate agency branch in Liverpool you are not interested in Twitter followers from London,” Burgess added. “For this reason, even though we are a digital agency, we still believe that print marketing should form a very important part of our clients’ strategy.”Managing the messageWhatever print medium an estate agent should choose to use, David Martin, Senior Partner at communications agency TTA Property, advises that they be clever about how they market themselves, especially as many consumers are often overloaded with information on a regular basis.“There is still a lot of value in print, as long as the reader finds it engaging, so think about how you are spending your marketing budget and use it wisely,” he said. “Consumers don’t like to feel that they are being given the hard sell, but are still happy to engage with a brand on a more subtle level if it is delivering value to them.”Martin continued, “Examples we have produced for clients include local area guides or local newspapers. Although these can be lightly branded, the content is designed to engage the reader, such as restaurant reviews, event listings, competitions and advice columns. These can of course then be produced both digitally and in print to utilise both mediums.”IntegrationRather than kill off print, the emergence of digital marketing could in fact be viewed as a means of reinforcing it, with the two mediums working in conjunction to complement one another.While print magazines and newspapers can be reproduced in digital format, many print publications can also be used to help drive extra traffic to a company’s website.“The growing use of QR codes and hashtags on print communications enables readers to engage further and more dynamically.” Matthew Cole PCSFor instance, print media can now offer quick and simple ways to access digital content using ‘bridging technologies’ such as QR codes.“It (print) has become a strong platform for driving traffic to digital platforms and to take consumers to the next stage in their consumer journey where, granted, organisations can get that little bit more creative,” said Matthew Cole, Commercial Executive, PCS.He added, “The growing use of QR codes and hashtags on printed communications to enable readers to engage further and more dynamically has almost started to identify a new purpose for printed communications in that process, still making it a very valid and impactful communications channel.”Print marketing campaignWhen embarking on a new print marketing campaign, John Smith of Printwell advises agents to commit to a period of three to six months in order to achieve the best possible consumer reach, exposure and return on investment (ROI).“We would strongly recommend planning a marketing campaign over a period and not get excited that a one hit wonder will bring the returns,” he said.But Smith urges agents not to be deterred by some of the additional expenses that print marketing may incur, compared to digital media, because they generally provide a better ROI.He concluded, “We believe that many (agents) find leaflet marketing, for instance, an unwanted additional expense, despite the fact that those who do market this way have much better proven returns!”Long live print!The fading fortunes of some print products should not deter agents when planning out an appropriate print marketing strategy. But before moving on, agents do need to properly understand how their clients consume their media. This will naturally vary from agency to agency, depending on target audience and the demographic in which they operate. But ultimately, an effective marketing campaign generally works best when print is used with other media as one element of an integrated solution designed to achieve maximum results.Contacts:Crucial Projects www.crucialprojects.co.ukIceberg Digital www.iceberg-digital.co.ukPCS pcs-publishing.comPrintwell www.printwell.co.ukRavensworth www.ravensworth.co.ukTTA www.ttaproperty.co.uk l April 24, 2014The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

View post tag: HMS Agincourt View post tag: HMS Torbay Share this article View post tag: Astute-Class View post tag: Royal Navy Photo: Royal Navy photo of ex-HMS Torbay with a Merlin flying in close proximity The Royal Navy has announced that its seventh and final Astute-class submarine HMS Agincourt will be affiliated with the city of Torbay whose residents farewelled the namesake Trafalgar-class submarine HMS Torbay as it bowed out of service a year ago.HMS Agincourt will be affiliated with the Devon borough throughout her 30-year life, replacing HMS Torbay which retired after 32 years of service.Since the T-boat’s demise, civic and political leaders on the English Riviera have lobbied firstly for a replacement for the veteran fleet submarine and secondly for that boat to be bound with Torbay.The lobbying has paid off. Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson agrees that “Torbay has a special relationship with our submarine service and it is a real honor to be able to announce HMS Agincourt will continue this tradition.“Agincourt will be Britain’s most advanced submarine ever, the jewel in the Royal Navy’s fleet – and there is no better place for her to be twinned with than Torbay.”Torbay has been associated with the RN since the late 17th Century and, since 1940, with the Silent Service as two submarines have been named HMS Torbay.Mayor Gordon Oliver said there had been a “quietly-mounted” campaign to maintain the borough’s links with submarines – as many people had “the Royal Navy in Torbay at its heart.”He continued: “This will be the start of a very long relationship with a new nuclear submarine but in particular with its commanding officer and crew in due course. I welcome the opportunity to support the senior service again and look forward to the process of construction, launch and naming of a no-doubt-famous vessel built to protect us and defend us. It will be much needed.”Whitehall committed £1.5bn to Agincourt earlier this year, with work now underway on the boat at BAE’s yard in Barrow. She is expected to enter service from her base at Faslane around 2024.

Incoming Hedwig and the Angry Inch star Andrew Rannells stopped by The Tonight Show on August 13 to chat about returning to the Great White Way. The Book of Mormon Tony nominee told Jimmy Fallon that with a great role comes a great amount of glitter. Sooo much glitter. (Neil Patrick Harris can vouch for that, too.) While Rannells didn’t offer up a sneak peek of his East German accent for the show, he did show off his amazing Australian accent. The trick to mastering it, he says, came from fellow stage and TV fave Cristin Milioti: if you can perfect saying the name of a certain megastar from the block, that’s all you really need. Take a look at the interview below, and catch Rannells in Hedwig at the Belasco Theatre beginning August 20.

After two years of working with the University of Georgia’s”IPM for Schools” program, Paul Guillebeau has seensome schools with excellent pest control programs. Unfortunately,he’s seen a lot of schools with bad records, too.Worth and Gwinnett Leading the PackWhen the program began two years ago, Worth and Gwinnett counties’school systems were the only ones actively working to reduce pesticides.”They were doing such an outstanding job that we use themas examples of what other schools can do,” said Guillebeau,Integrated Pest Management coordinator for the UGA College ofAgricultural and Environmental Sciences.”Gwinnett is a really big school system, and Worth isat the other end of the spectrum,” he said. “So theymake perfect examples.”Schools Need Pest PoliciesBut Guillebeau found that most schools don’t even have writtenpest control policies.”If a school doesn’t have a policy, a teacher can keepa can of Raid in her desk,” he said. “You can see theliability if a child got the can and sprayed another child inthe face with it.”Guillebeau said spraying aerosols can also interfere with baitroach controls. “If the pest control company has placed baitsin the room to fight roaches, and the teacher sprays a trail ofRaid, the roaches can’t get to the baits,” he said.The IPM for Schools program recommends that only people withtraining be allowed to apply pesticides in the school, and thenonly when children aren’t present.Finding Ways to Reduce Pesticide RisksThroughout the program, Guillebeau has uncovered numerous opportunitiesto reduce pesticide risks.”One school had a big problem with roaches in their kindergartenarea,” he said. “They were treating for roaches on aregular basis, and this is an area where you’d want to treat theleast.”An inspection of the classroom revealed snack foods storeduncovered, overnight, in several places. The pest control companysuggested the school develop a policy that all snack foods mustbe eaten in an area where maintenance workers can easily cleanup, and leftover food items must be stored in sealed containers.”After that, they didn’t have to spray anymore in thekindergarten room,” he said. “They just didn’t understandthe link between the food and the roaches.”
