Authorities HMS Daring and HMS Illustrious Receive Peace Awards View post tag: Peace Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Daring and HMS Illustrious Receive Peace Awards Two Royal Navy warships have received the military’s ultimate award for peace and goodwill for helping the people of the Philippines.First HMS Daring and later HMS Illustrious spent around a month helping devastated island communities rebuild their lives after the most powerful storm ever recorded.Collectively, the two ships helped more than 22,000 people in November and December 2013 – efforts which have earned the vessels the Firmin Sword of Peace.Typhoon Haiyan steamrollered through a swathe of islands large and small some 200 miles south of the Filipino capital with winds as strong as 175mph wrecking homes, schools, businesses, amenities and fishing vessels.Destroyer HMS Daring broke off from exercises in the South China Sea to dash to the country’s aid followed a short time later by helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious, which had been carrying out anti-piracy sweeps off the Horn of Africa.When she arrived, Daring was the only rescue asset available in the Visayan Sea and used her Lynx helicopter to search an area five times the size of Wales to pinpoint the communities most in need of assistance.Her sailors, bolstered by British government international aid experts and charities, delivered food, shelter packs, set up mobile clinics treating more than 300 Filipinos, repaired fishing vessels, put roofs back on schools and community centres and helped to restore water supplies.Illustrious did much the same job when she reached the Philippines – but on a much larger scale given her size, number of helicopters aboard, and the 1,100 sailors, soldiers and RAF personnel aboard.It proved to be the last operational act of the carrier’s three-decade career – Illustrious paid off last summer – and it earned her a special collective Firmin Sword of Peace for all three Armed Forces, while Daring receives the same title on behalf of the Royal Navy.[mappress mapid=”14958″]Press release, Image: Royal Navy View post tag: Navy View post tag: europe View post tag: receive View post tag: awards Share this article View post tag: News by topic View post tag: HMS Illustrious View post tag: Royal Navy View post tag: Naval January 26, 2015 View post tag: HMS Daring

Touch Football Australia’s Victorian Branch has been awarded the Supporting Grassroots Sport Grant, worth $40,000 over two years from the Victorian State Government.The grant will benefit the development of Touch Football in Victorian regional areas. $1.5 million has been allocated by the Victorian Government from the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Budget for regional and rural sport. TFA Victoria will use the funds from its grant to employ a part-time regional Game Development Officer to manage a specific area. The new position will be responsible for the development of Touch Football in the region through schools, current affiliates, establishing new affiliates, encouraging the development of referees and coaches, and maintaining facilities. TFAVictoria State Branch Manager David Brady said two regions are currently being considered. “Both have good potential for growth for two years. We’re just finalising partnership arrangements,” Mr. Brady said.Game Development Officer Carly Goodrich played a pivotal role in securing the grant.Ms. Goodrich believes that the grant will be of great benefit to Touch Football throughout regional Victoria and outer-metropolitan Melbourne. “It will be a big support because at the moment we’ve got a lot of volunteers doing work in that location. The volunteers will now be able to access resources from the State Branch office to assist them,” she said. The new TFA Victoria Regional Game Development Officer will be based in the specified area and employed locally, which will support the community. The level of service to the developing regions of the State is sure to be improved by the location of the GDO in the rural locality.“If our staff live in metropolitan Melbourne, it is difficult to get to a country affiliate so we might go out there only three or four times a year. But if we’ve got someone centred there in that area for the whole time then we would expect to get a lot of growth participant wise,” Goodrich said. The opportunity for the promotion of Touch Football to country areas is one of the key reasons that the grant was awarded.Sport and Recreation Victoria Project Officer Tom Forsell said the more regional participation, the better. “Currently Touch Football is predominantly Melbourne-based but having someone that can go and deliver sessions in the country, whether it’s school-based stuff or club-school links, will really improve the ability of the organisation to start getting more country kids playing. All the projects that we fund are looking at increasing the participation rate and giving people more of a choice,” Forsell said.TFA Victoria has been extremely proactive in seeking funding in numerous areas, and Branch Manager David Brady is confident that two more key project grants will be awarded soon.“With the extra funding from the State Government, and with several other grants in the pipeline, we will be in a position to access extra staffing support from the parent body. What we’re trying to do is to pool our resources in the right direction. We have experienced quite a substantial growth, as evidenced by our Schools Championships, and the number of affiliates that come on board. We’ve had two new affiliates in the last financial year, which is fantastic. We have had a lot of new enquiries about the sport and the game so we are on our way to establishing our niche in the Victorian sporting landscape for the future,” Brady said.The first grant Touch Victoria is awaiting notification on is a Participation In Community Sport and Active Recreation (PICSAR), State and Regional grant, funded by VicHealth. VicHealth’s charter is to ‘build opportunities for people to be informed, learn new skills, have greater access to activities that promote good health, and share healthier environments’.The sport of Touch Football seems a perfect fit for this criteria.The second grant is part of the Victorian Government’s Future Directions Project, which is also funded through the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Budget. These two grants would help TFA Victoria fund Touch Football in the other identified regional area as well as continue the expansion of the sport in metropolitan Melbourne. Nick Mooney, TFA Victoria Operations Manager is in the process of formalising the strategic and development plans to drive the game forward amongst juniors and in new affiliates in Victoria. The grants are a sign of the increasing recognition of Touch Football as a sport of choice for Victorians.Australian football is still the dominant code in Australia’s south east corner, with 300,000 Victorians currently playing the game, however Touch Football is promoted as a complement to the game, rather than a competition. Touch Football is predominantly a summer sport in Victoria and affiliates are establishing strong links with Australian football clubs. “We find that it’s a good cross-training sport for a lot of football players to keep fit in summer,” David Brady said. With the increased support from the Government and continued partnerships with other sports, Touch Football in Victoria is going from strength to strength.
Real Madrid captain Ramos open to playing for Spain in Olympicsby Carlos Volcano15 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveReal Madrid captain Sergio Ramos admits he’d be open to playing for Spain in the 2020 Olympics.Spain have never usually opted for such veteran players to make up their Olympic squads, but this seems to be something Ramos is really keen on.El Mundo reports that this would be a dream for the centre-back.”If the chance to go to Tokyo comes up, it would be tremendously exciting for him,” is the view of those close to the player.Spain have already qualified thanks to the Under-21s’ performances at this summer’s UEFA European Under-21 Championship and each competing nation is permitted to include three over-23s in their Olympic squad.

BOSTON – Fidget spinners, a plastic Wonder Woman battle sword and a remote-controlled Spider-Man drone are among the toys topping a consumer safety group’s annual list of worst toys for the holidays.World Against Toys Causing Harm, or WATCH, unveiled the top 10 list Tuesday at a Boston children’s hospital. The non-profit organization has been releasing the lists for more than four decades.WATCH claims fidget spinners contain small parts that can be a choking hazard, Mattel’s Wonder Woman sword has the potential to cause blunt-force injuries and Marvel’s Spider-Man drone has multiple rotating blades that can lead to eye and other bodily injuries.The Toy Association, an industry trade group, dismissed the list as “needlessly frightening” to parents because all toys sold in the U.S. meet “rigorous” safety standards. It also criticized the organization for not testing the toys it focuses on.National toy safety standards are “inadequate,” as can been seen by the high number of recalls each year, WATCH President Joan Siff said.The non-profit says there have been at least 15 recalls representing nearly 2 million units of dangerous toys since December.Siff stressed the toys named each year have common hazards that the group sees year after year. She pointed to the “Pull Along Pony” by Tolo Toys that’s marketed for children over age 1 but has a 19-inch cord.“We don’t need a testing lab to know that’s a strangulation and entanglement hazard,” she said.With consumers increasingly doing their holiday shopping online, it’s more important than ever to have the most current information about the safety of a toy online, Siff said.For example, Hallmark’s Disney-themed “Itty Bittys” plush stacking toy for babies was recalled over the summer due to fabric pieces that posed a choking hazard. But the toy still is readily available online because many web sales are rarely monitored for recalls, Siff noted.Among the other toys that made this year’s list is Nerf’s “Zombie Strike” crossbow, which the organization says poses the risk of eye and face injuries because it uses a pressurized, pull back lever to shoot soft projectiles.Razor’s “Heel Wheels” are strapped onto children’s shoes to turn them into improvised roller skates but pose a burn risk because they include “real sparking action.”And “Slackline” is a tightrope-like device by Brand 44 meant to be anchored between two trees that WATCH says can lead to severe injury and death.
