Warren Gatland mocked up as clown by New Zealand paper … for a second time

• New Zealand Herald repeats well-worn gag once again• Gatland had claimed All Blacks had illegally targeted Conor MurrayThe New Zealand Herald has mocked up Warren Gatland as a cartoon clown – for the second time – having previously meted out the same treatment to the Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika, while the Australian media has also in the past applied the same caricature to England coach Eddie Jones.New Zealand’s head coach Steve Hansen was moved to call into a radio station to respond to Gatland’s claims the All Blacks had illegally targeted scrum-half Conor Murray’s standing leg when box-kicking during the Lions’ 30-15 loss in last Saturday’s first Test at Eden Park.

Hurricanes v Lions: tour match – live!

Updates from the final midweek match of the tourWarren Gatland mocked up as clown … for second timeKaino pleads innocence over charge at Lions’ MurrayAnd feel free to email Gerard or tweet @gerard_meagher 9.24am BST A very good half for the Lions, all be told. The Hurricanes have been far too indisciplined and the Lions have taken full advantage with tries from Seymour and North. The Hurricanes have looked dangerous at times and have scored a try through Gibbins but on the whole the Lions have defended very well.Lawes and Henderson have both been excellent so it’ll be interesting to see if either is taken off. Henshaw has had to go off injured which has brought Halfpenny on at fullback and Nowell, who was impressing in the No15 shirt, to the wing. North has gone to centre, from where he managed his first try of the tour which will be a huge confidence boost.

Stop The Opioid Epidemic Before It Stops Us

Deaths from opioid overdoses are skyrocketing across the country. Unless we take immediate action, the nation is about to witness a tsunami of drug-related deaths unlike anything we have seen since crack cocaine ravaged the country a generation ago. A recent investigation by the New York Times estimates 59,000 people died in 2016 from drug overdoses, making it the leading cause of death for Americans under age 50. Figures from three Oregon counties indicate that for each person who dies of an overdose, 26 experience non-fatal overdoses, and 100 are dependent on or addicted to opioids. The median age when people start injecting drugs is 21, which explains the surge in adolescent overdoses this year in states like Maryland, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maine and Ohio. State law enforcement chiefs are banding together to investigate the role drug makers may be playing in the wave of addiction, overdoses and deaths. As the head of Covenant House, the largest charity in the nation serving homeless, trafficked and vulnerable youth, I worry a great deal about how pain pills, heroin, fentanyl and other opioids affect the youth we reach each year. As anyone knows who has read Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic, a brilliant but depressing account of the spread of black tar heroin and pill mills dispensing painkillers, the forces behind the scourge are formidable: drug cartels that operate like pizza delivery services, avoiding police with replaceable drivers; drug companies that sell painkillers aggressively; doctors who over-prescribe; patients who overuse; illegal markets for pain pills; and drugs spiked with fentanyl or carfentanyl, which can be deadly. For many of the young people we see, who typically lack safe housing, a supportive family, decent education and viable job prospects, the carnage is likely particularly high, although nationwide data is still emerging. A 2012 paper published by the National Institutes of Health called homeless youth “an important subgroup of young adults who should be included in future studies to better describe the spectrum of prescription drug misuse.” Many kids are exposed to alcohol and illicit drugs when they are homeless and alone, which makes street outreach efforts essential to help them avoid the ugly underbelly of street life. Drugs can numb young people from the pain of losing their families, homes, and communities, or from trauma related to abuse. This problem is not confined to the homeless, however. None of the drug-related funerals I attended in the last year involved friends who were homeless. And of course the most famous opioid overdose in 2016 was the music icon Prince, who did not lack for resources or shelter. The tragedy of opioid abuse is affecting people across the socio-economic spectrum, including the actor and youth advocate Cory Monteith, who played Finn on “Glee” and died in 2013 with heroin in his system. Cory, who had reportedly struggled with addiction, was a friend to Covenant House Vancouver and other organizations helping vulnerable young people. A number of initiatives are bubbling up to address the crisis, including treatment programs in jails where inmates can go through detox and fight their addictions behind bars. Doctors need to be more judicious in prescribing opioids, often a gateway drug to street heroin. “The solution is to stop handing out [opioid prescription drugs] like they’re candy,” said Peter Shumlin, former governor of Vermont, addressing a panel at Harvard. “Full stop, that’s what we’ve got to do.” Federal mental health experts recognize the need for recovery support services like “housing, educational and employment services, spiritual coaching, child care, mentoring, family support, life skills training, and vocational training.” Such “social capital” is the biggest factor in helping people stay clean, researchers found. The newest wave of opioid addiction is spreading rapidly and killing 160 Americans a day. The time for an aggressive, nationwide public health response is now.  Need help with substance abuse or mental health issues?

Why You Should Tell Your Team to Take a Break and Go Outside

Wellness programs are becoming an integral priority for most human resource managers. After all, research shows that a happier workplace is more productive. To this end, workplaces are adding health-related perks from exercise rooms to yoga classes. Leaders participate in mindfulness and compassion trainings and are coached to learn emotional intelligence. However, there is one important wellness factor that many are forgetting even though it may be the most potent of all: access to green spaces. Greenery isn’t just an air-freshener that’s pleasant to look at, it can actually significantly boost employee well-being, reduce stress, enhance innovative potential, and boost a sense of connection. Yet most of us don’t spend much time in nature. Richard Louv, author of the Nature Principal, argues that we’re collectively suffering from “nature-deficit disorder,” which hurts us mentally, physically, and even spiritually. Adding a little wilderness to your corporate offices may just be the smartest move you can do this year. For one, exposure to green spaces profoundly enhances physical and mental well-being which is why corporations like Google prioritize biophilia as a core design principle. Studies are showing these interventions can reduce not just everyday stress but also boost general health. Taking walks in nature lowers anxiety and depression while boosting mood and well-being, a large-scale study showed. Exposure to more light can boost Vitamin D levels that are known to increase mood, especially in colder months. Scientists are also exploring how exposure to nature might result in lower risk of depression, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. The immune system certainly receives a boost from stress-reduction, and even just the sounds of nature trigger a relaxation response in the brain. Exposure to natural environments lowers stress, including its physiological correlates the “stress hormone” cortisol, heart rate, and blood pressure. By boosting mood, natural environments may also decrease inflammation at the cellular level. In short, even a small green intervention like having more plants in the office could significantly boost employee happiness, and we know that happiness is a powerful predictor of an organization’s success. Corporations can significantly reduce organizational health costs by introducing more green spaces and plants into an office space. As Florence Williams has exhaustively reviewed in her recent book The Nature Fix, “forest bathing” have become popular practices in many East Asian countries because the impact of even a few minutes of immersion in nature has measurable benefits not just for our psychological well-being but also our physical health. Greener office environments can boost employee performance and decision-making. One study found that exposure to greenery through office plants boosted not just employee well-being but also productivity  - by 15%! Lead researcher Marlon Nieuwenhuis concludes: “Our research suggests that investing in landscaping the office with plants will pay off through an increase in office workers’ quality of life and productivity.” For one, plants, natural environments and greener offices offer superior air quality which in turn strengthens employee cognitive function – allowing them to perform at their best. Here’s why this may be the case: Neurosciencist and founder of My Brain Solutions Dr Evian Gordon proposes that “the brain’s attunement to nature has a seminal evolutionary origin, beginning with the earliest species sensing and responding to their environment. Our ancestral hominids (australopithecus, homo habilis, and homo erectus) evolved in response to short-term survival pressures within the rhythms of nature.” Dr Gordon who has published more then 300 scientific papers draws upon insights from the world’s largest standardized brain function database, that shows the immediate and significant extent to which any sensory input creates changes in the brain and body. Stress impacts the heart’s rhythms, for example. Unnatural environments are a subtle form of distraction and stress to optimal brain processing. Natural environments have the opposite effect. Moreover, research shows that exposure to a natural environment helps people be less impulsive (while urban settings do the opposite). In this particular study, participants were asked if they’d prefer to make $100 immediately or $150 in 90 days. Those who had either been in a natural environment (or simply looked at photos of a natural environment) were more likely to make the more rational and beneficial decision: wait for the $150. Such was not the case for those exposed to cityscapes. Exposure to nature may therefore foster boost superior decision-making which includes better foresight. Exposure to natural environments also strengthens attention and may even help strengthen memory. Finally, we know that the #1 trait leaders look for in incoming employees is creativity, and exposure to natural environments dramatically improves our ability to think expansively and make superior decisions. Being in nature is a core element of New York designer Joanne DePalma’s work, inspiring her most iconic designs, including the flagship store for Tiffany in Paris, and leading her to creative breakthroughs, including creating one of the world’s most sustainable carpets with Bently Prince Street. “Nature inspires my design and restores me,” she shares. “Whether I’m feeling stuck or exhausted during a long and grueling project, or just need some new ideas, a visit to the waterfront or Central Park gets me back to the source of my creativity. I find so many complex design solutions are hidden in nature.” Nature can have a positive influence on workplace culture by strengthening employees’ values and leading to greater harmony and connection. Exposure to nature doesn’t just make you feel and think better, it also makes you behave better. People who’ve just walked out of a park or other natural environment are more likely to notice when others need help – and to provide that help. In line with these findings, researchers at the University of Rochester found that exposure to nature resulted in participants valuing community and connectedness over more superficial concerns like personal gain and fame. Participants also became more generous and willing to share with others. As the lead author Netta Weinstein observes, “we are influenced by our environment in ways we are not aware of….to the extent that our links with nature are disrupted, we may also lose some connection with each other.” Given that there are fewer and fewer “human moments” in the workplace yet that employee well-being is in large part due to positive social connections with other people, embracing greener environments could be tremendously beneficial for a workplace. Other studies have confirmed that exposure to nature leads to less antisocial behavior and more social connection and harmony. Even a very small exposure to nature – as little as five minutes – can produce dramatic benefits, especially when coupled with exercise like walking or running. In many of the studies mentioned above, the effect was observed after participants simply looked at pictures of nature (vs urban environments) for a few minutes or worked in an office with (or without) plants — easy touches to add to a work setting. While creating a “green office” may seem daunting, it really isn’t. Here are some easy ways you can make your officer greener Encourage your staff to have “walking meetings” outside. Encourage your staff to sit outside or in naturally lit areas on breaks or during lunch. Provide outdoor walking, meeting, and sitting spaces. If outdoor spaces are not available or you are in an urban environment, create an indoor garden in an atrium or, if space is at a premium, a vertical “green wall.” Light rooms with natural sunlight as much as possible. Open blinds and, if possible, windows to let in outside air and natural sounds. Display nature photography or artwork. Play nature videos or nature slides on your television or display screens. Place as many plants as you can prominently around the office (making sure a designated person takes good care of them). Move your office closer to a park or natural environment. An increasing interest at Google and similar companies is to make green spaces that are also respectful of the natural environment as a habitat for local animals and plants. Not only are these companies promoting employee well-being, but also reducing their ecological footprint. Even if your company’s management is unwilling or unable to do these things, you can try a few out yourself: a walking meeting with a colleague, taping a photo of your favorite nature scene to your cubicle, or listening to ambient nature sounds on your headphones. Remember the words of German poet Rainer Marie Rilke: “If we surrendered / to earth’s intelligence / we could rise up rooted, like trees.”

What happens to football managers who fall off the merry-go-round?

A few lucky managers always seem to have work but 70% of bosses aren’t given another opportunity after they lose their first job. What do they do next?By Sean Cole for The Set Pieces, part of the Guardian Sport NetworkIt can appear as though some managers, no matter how mediocre their records, are never out of work. For all the endless churn in the volatile and highly pressurised industry of professional football, a few seem to skip from one employer to another without any discernible success. But the reality for most managers is rather different. According to figures from the League Managers Association, 70% of first-time managers are not given another opportunity after they lose their jobs. It can be sink or swim, with no second chances.Kevin Dillon is someone who has struggled to return to a first-team role. The 57-year-old was a spiky and confrontational player for Birmingham City, Portsmouth and Newcastle United, among others, before he went back to Reading, his final Football League club, to take up a coaching position in their academy. He progressed through the ranks to become assistant to Alan Pardew and, via a handful of games as caretaker manager, Steve Coppell. Continue reading...

Gatland's claims about dangerous All Blacks play are desperate, says Hansen

All Blacks coach responds to Gatland’s complaints of ‘dangerous’ play‘We want to play hard, but we want to play fair,’ insists HansenThe bad feeling between Steve Hansen and Warren Gatland got a whole lot worse on Monday morning, when the All Blacks coach accused his Lions counterpart of being “desperate” after the first Test, and said that his remarks about the All Blacks’ tactics had taken the gloss off the match and the tourists’ performance. Gatland complained that New Zealand had been “dangerous” in the way they’d targeted Lions’ scrum-half Conor Murray, that their tacklers had “dived blindly” at his standing leg while they were trying to charge down his kicks. In an interview with Radio Sport NZ on Monday morning, Hansen hit back by saying that Gatland’s remarks were “really, really disappointing”, but no less than he expected from him.

The 9 Worst Mistakes You Can Ever Make At Work

No matter how talented you are or what you’ve accomplished, there are certain behaviors that instantly change the way people see you and forever cast you in a negative light. We’ve all heard of (or seen firsthand) people doing some pretty crazy things at work. Truth is, you don’t have to throw a chair through a window or quit in the middle of a presentation to cause irreparable damage to your career. There are so many things that can kill the careers of good, hard-working people. Honest mistakes often carry hard-hitting consequences. “You can’t make the same mistake twice, the second time, it’s not a mistake, it’s a choice.” - Anonymous There doesn’t have to be a single, sickening moment when you realize that you just shoved your foot firmly in your mouth, either. Little things can add up over time and undermine your career just as much as (or more than) one huge lapse in judgment. Self-awareness is a critical skill in the workplace. It’s the foundation of emotional intelligence, a skill set that TalentSmart research shows is responsible for 58 percent of your job performance. If you remain self-aware, these mistakes are all things that you can control before they creep up on you and damage your career. 1. Over-promising and under-delivering. It’s tempting to promise the moon to your colleagues and your clients, especially when you’re honest and hardworking and believe that you can do it. The problem is that there’s no point in creating additional pressure that can make you look bad. If you promise to do something ridiculously fast and you miss the deadline by a little bit, you’ll likely think that you did a good job because you still delivered quickly. But the moment you promise something to someone, they expect nothing less. You end up looking terrible when you fall short, which is a shame, because you could have done the same quality work in the same amount of time with great results if you’d just set up realistic expectations from the beginning. This is one of those situations where perception matters more than reality. Don’t deliberately undershoot your goals; just be realistic about the results you can deliver so that you’re certain to create expectations that you will blow out of the water. 2. Having an emotional hijacking. My company provides 360° feedback and executive coaching, and we come across far too many instances of people throwing things, screaming, making people cry, and other telltale signs of an emotional hijacking. An emotional hijacking demonstrates low emotional intelligence, and it’s an easy way to get fired. As soon as you show that level of instability, people will question whether or not you’re trustworthy and capable of keeping it together when it counts. Exploding at anyone, regardless of how much they might “deserve it,” turns a huge amount of negative attention your way. You’ll be labeled as unstable, unapproachable, and intimidating. Controlling your emotions keeps you in the driver’s seat (something you can develop through emotional intelligence training). When you are able to control your emotions around someone who wrongs you, they end up looking bad instead of you. 3. Sucking up to your boss. Some people suck up to their boss and call it managing up, but that isn’t the case at all. Sucking up has nothing to do with a real relationship built on respect; it is sneaky and underhanded. Suck-ups try to get ahead by stroking the boss’s ego instead of earning his or her favor. That doesn’t go over well with colleagues who are trying to make it on merit. Yes, you want to bolster your relationship with your boss, but not by undermining your colleagues. That’s the key distinction here. For a boss-employee relationship to work, it has to be based on authenticity. There’s no substitute for merit. 4. Eating smelly food. Unless you happen to work on a ship, your colleagues are going to mind if you make the entire place smell like day-old fish. The general rule of thumb when it comes to food at work is, anything with an odor that might waft beyond the kitchen door should be left at home. It might seem like a minor thing, but smelly food is inconsiderate and distracting—and so easily avoidable. When something that creates discomfort for other people is so easily avoided, it tends to build resentment quickly. Your pungent lunch tells everyone that you just don’t care about them, even when you do. 5. Backstabbing. The name says it all. Stabbing your colleagues in the back, intentionally or otherwise, is a huge source of strife in the workplace. One of the most frequent forms of backstabbing is going over someone’s head to solve a problem. People typically do this in an attempt to avoid conflict, but they end up creating even more conflict as soon as the victim feels the blade. Anytime you make someone look bad in the eyes of their colleagues, it feels like a stab in the back, regardless of your intentions. 6. Negativity. Sometimes when you’re feeling negative and down, your mood can leak out and affect other people, even if you don’t intend it to. You were hired to make your boss’s and your team’s jobs easier, not harder. People who spread negativity through their department and complain about the work or other people complicate things for everyone else. If people always have to tiptoe around you so as not to dislodge that massive chip on your shoulder, they are unlikely to be willing to do it for very long. 7. Gossiping. People make themselves look terrible when they get carried away with gossiping about other people. Wallowing in talk of other people’s misdeeds or misfortunes may end up hurting their feelings if the gossip finds its way to them, but gossiping will make you look negative and spiteful every time, guaranteed. 8. Bragging. When someone hits a home run and starts gloating as they run the bases, it’s safe to assume that they haven’t hit very many home runs. On the other hand, if they hit a home run and simply run the bases, it conveys a business-as-usual mentality, which is far more intimidating to the other team. Accomplishing great things without bragging about them demonstrates the same strong mentality—it shows people that succeeding isn’t unusual to you. 9. Announcing that you hate your job. The last thing anyone wants to hear at work is someone complaining about how much they hate their job. Doing so labels you as a negative person and brings down the morale of the group. Bosses are quick to catch on to naysayers who drag down morale, and they know that there are always enthusiastic replacements waiting just around the corner. Bringing It All Together These behaviors may sound extreme and highly inconsiderate, but they have a tendency to sneak up on you. A gentle reminder is a great way to avoid them completely. What other behaviors should I add to this list? Please share your thoughts in the comments section, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me. Want to learn more from me?
