first_imgThis article originally appeared in the October 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The Bristol Bears boss has packed a lot into his 30 years as an elite-level player and coach TAGS: Samoa Pat Lam’s Life in PicturesPat Lam won 34 Samoa caps between 1991 and 1999, playing in three World Cups during that time. The back-rower also won trophies with Newcastle and Northampton before moving into coaching and winning trophies with Auckland, Connacht and Bristol.Here Lam talks through key moments from his three decades in the elite game…(Getty Images)1991 – Island paradise“The biggest highlight of my playing career – the 1991 World Cup and beating Wales (16-13). It was a massive game and a huge upset, but the reason why it’s the highlight is what it did for the Samoan people.“Growing up in New Zealand, Samoans were seen as working class, working in factories and so forth. What that Samoa team did gave them a sense of pride.“I was a teacher and every young Pacific Islander growing up in New Zealand wanted to be an All Black, but after that it was, ‘Mr Lam, I want to play for Manu Samoa’. It brought real pride.“What the team achieved on the field meant Samoa then got invited to play the big nations.”(Getty Images)1992 – Making a splash “You can’t change countries now but in those days you could. I was with New Zealand Sevens from 1989 so this was my fourth year in that team, while I’d been to the 1991 World Cup with Samoa.“The 1992 Hong Kong Sevens was difficult because that year we played Samoa in one game, so there were mixed emotions.“The weather was also atrocious – we couldn’t do scrums, only free-kicks, because of the puddles of water. Every child wants to play rugby in those conditions, running and sliding everywhere!“I scored a try in the corner here and they were just unforgettable conditions – I’d never played in conditions like that before.”(Getty Images)1998 – Lovely bubbly“I remember this very clearly. We were at the Stoop playing Quins on a Sunday. Saracens had been one point behind us and had won, so we needed to win and we won really comfortably in the end.“Newcastle football club was also owned by Sir John Hall and they were playing Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on the Saturday, so a lot of the Toon Army came along to support us as well.“It was a great day, to go from getting promoted the year before to winning the Premiership. We had a lot of internationals and a lot of good friends, and to win the Premiership was massive for rugby in the North of England.“Some of us also went to see the Spice Girls on the Friday night and we were asked by security to move back because the little girls couldn’t see above us! We got to meet them and, this was before he was famous, Baby Spice thought Jonny Wilkinson was very cute.”(Getty Images)1999 – Lam sandwich“I retired at the end of this World Cup, when we were the first team to win at the Millennium Stadium and Wales had won ten Tests in a row. The final score was 38-31 – it was a great game. We’d put a lot of work in to try to beat them and everything came off.“I scored from an intercept. Ed Morrison was the referee and as I was playing in the Premiership I knew him. Wales had made a line break and we were in big trouble, they looked like they were going to score. I was running back and I gave Ed the heads-up to say I was onside, then I remember rushing up inside Scott Quinnell.“Neil Jenkins got the ball and passed to Scott, but I got in between them and intercepted. I ran in from 80m, maybe 60m, but it was a big run. That was the beauty of playing in the Premiership; Wales were saying I was offside but I’d shown Ed I was onside.“The Millennium Stadium is my favourite stadium. Even in 1991, at the Arms Park, the atmosphere was unreal and the Millennium magnified that under the roof.“I’d played in three World Cups and knew I wouldn’t go to 2003. I’d also been captain from 1995 through to 1999, so I thought it was right to step down so Samoa could bring the next group through as I’d been involved for so long.“It had also been tough on my family, playing in the Premiership and then flying back to New Zealand or Samoa for Test matches, then back again – it was non-stop. It was time to focus on playing for Northampton and having time with my family.”(Getty Images)2000 – Saints’ day“This was a very good day (beating Munster in the Heineken Cup final). Northampton hadn’t won anything in their 120 years.“I had no desire to go to Northampton, I was very happy at Newcastle, but I got sold and Ian McGeechan bought me. I wasn’t pleased at first but I learnt a lot from the great Ian McGeechan.“We had a lot of talented players but the big thing we did was bring a culture together of being more like brothers than men. We achieved some big things. In those days there weren’t breaks for the European Cup, so the more successful you were, the more midweek games you had.“I wasn’t sure if I’d play because we were expecting child number four on the day of the final.“Munster were favourites and that week we didn’t train because we were battered and bruised. We said it would come down to heart and mental toughness, and we had one more game left in us. It was a close game, 9-8.“We were in contention for three trophies, lost the other two but got the big one. It was a huge day and a special team.”(Getty Images)2001 – Two sides“This was my last season, back at Newcastle to finish off my career. I had about 20 offers for two- or three-year contracts, but I only wanted to play one more year so I made the decision to go to Newcastle. I hadn’t wanted to leave (in 1998), so I went back to finish there. It gave me peace to leave on the right note.“Whenever I’m doing photos I’m asked to be serious but that’s not me. Most Pacific Islanders are like that: on the field we’ll be tough but off the field that doesn’t reflect who we are. They wanted me and Johnno (Martin Johnson) to stare each other out but I was laughing.“When Bristol wanted to change to the Bristol Bears I liked that as it’s similar – bears protect their community but they will fight when they need to be aggressive. I want aggressive, tough rugby players but I also want a gentler side – working with young people, going into hospitals.”(Getty Images)2002 – Final flourish“My last-ever game was for the Barbarians against Wales and I was given the honour of captaining the team. We were losing 25-0 at half-time but won 40-25 and I scored the last try.“I love the Barbarians. I came through in the amateur days but professionalism isn’t about getting paid, professionalism is the way you do things. Playing for the Barbarians was a throwback to the amateur days, coming together to just play rugby with friends, to socialise and have a great time.“I’ve also been privileged to coach them and because I understand what the Barbarians is about I pass that on.”(Getty Images)2003 – Masterclass“I’d started working with Scotland in 2001. Two weeks after I started my last season at Newcastle, Graham Henry called to ask if I’d be an assistant for Wales. Graham had coached me since I was at school and had been a big part of my career, but I told him I’d just signed for Newcastle so we said maybe the next year when I finished playing.“Two weeks after that Geech (Sir Ian McGeechan) got hold of me to ask if I’d help with Scotland. I said the same thing, that I’d just signed with Newcastle, and he said, ‘It’s only an hour or so away’.“We had breaks in the season for the Six Nations and autumn Internationals then, so he talked to Rob Andrew, the director of rugby at Newcastle, and Rob gave his blessing for me to do it. He knew I had a desire to coach and it was a transitional stage before retiring. Graham was really understanding too. I learnt a lot from him and a lot from Geech.“Geech was fantastic and mentored me in every part – playing, man-management, ideas on the game. I was like a sponge, picking everything up. Bear club: Pat Lam issues instructions to his Bristol players (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “After I retired he offered me a full-time job, but by then Steph, my wife, thought it was time for us to go back home (to New Zealand). Geech told me to take my family home and that he’d fly me back for the Six Nations, June Tests, November and so on. It meant when I was at home it was family time, then when I was in Scotland I was living and breathing the team. That took me through to the 2003 World Cup.”(Getty Images)2007 – Winning run“After the 2003 World Cup, Graham Henry asked me to work with him at Auckland. He then got the All Blacks job and I came in as head coach when I was supposed to be assistant.“This was my fourth year with them and it was a special year. We had a great group of guys, like David Smith and Jerome Kaino here. So many young players came through and we set a record by winning every single game to go undefeated.“We won the Ranfurly Shield in Christchurch against Canterbury, which was massive, and the Air NZ Cup. It was a great season.”(Getty Images)2012 – Blues blow“If I had to pick a year where I grew most as a coach it would be 2012. I got so many lessons to take forward. Until you’ve been sacked nothing is real for you. Once that’s happened it forces you to review and reflect, to prepare for the next step.“The year before, in 2011, the Blues reached the Super Rugby finals – we lost to the Reds in the semis and they went on to win it.“That year we weren’t doing well for a variety of reasons but there’s an undercurrent in New Zealand that comes through when something goes wrong… There’s Polynesian flair but Pacific Islanders aren’t in thinking positions. Yet in 2007 with Auckland, we’d won with a Tongan captain, Sam Tuitupou, and Pacific Islanders at nine, Taniela Moa, and ten, Isa Nacewa, and at No 8 was Jerome Kaino!“People were making racial comments (in 2012). It didn’t bother me but it did bother my mum and dad. They would listen to talkback radio, where people would just vent about rugby.“At that media conference someone asked about my parents. I started talking about my dad and got emotional, people not understanding his background of coming from Samoa to New Zealand on a boat at 19. Even now I’m getting emotional. I talked about how tough it was for my dad and broke down a little bit.“I turned to our media person and said, ‘This will blow up’ and it did. It was all Pat Lam and racism, it’s getting too much for him (one headline read: Pat Lam breaks down over racist taunts). But it was talking about my dad that did it.”(Getty Images)2012 – Familiar story“I was sacked as Blues coach in July and then Samoa asked if I’d help out as technical adviser for their November tour.“We were playing Canada, Wales and France, and a lot of the management hadn’t been to the northern hemisphere.“We talked about how to run that tour because we had 30 players in the squad, with not one from the same club. We had six training sessions so had to keep things simple to be effective.“We beat Wales to form the ‘Pool of Death’ at the 2015 World Cup (as Wales fell out of the top eight in the rankings that autumn).“To win at the Millennium Stadium was fantastic and continued my relationship with Wales, beating them in 1991, 1994 and 1999 as a player and then again as a coach in 2012.”(Inpho)2015 – The big chill“We’ve got a world map at home with pins for all the places we’ve been. There’s one dot in the middle of Russia – Krasnoyarsk (where Connacht faced Enisei STM in the Challenge Cup).“It was minus 29°C. The plan was to fly in and fly out but our plane broke down, we got stranded for a couple of days and we all had to come back different ways. It was a real experience and something I’ll never forget.“It was the making of the group. We faced a lot of adversity and challenges on that trip, but we embraced it and came out stronger. That held us in good  stead to win the (Pro12) title.”(Inpho)2016 – Crowd pleasers“We brought the community along for that ride. Connacht had been close to being disbanded but we brought the whole province together. They got behind what we achieved (winning the Pro12).“That’s my coaching highlight. We didn’t have the best players or the best budget, but it was a true team effort; everyone did their bit.“It was Connacht’s first final whereas Leinster had been to so many and were pretty much the Irish national team, but we played with no fear. We went in full of confidence, played our game and scored some unbelievable tries.“We landed at Knock airport at 2am but it was full of people and all the way back people were on the streets, then we brought the trophy to our training ground. This was a highlight because of what it did for the community. There was so much pride.”(Inpho)2016 – Happy couple “We’ll have been together 33 years in December of this year. Steph’s the best – there’s no way I’d have been able to do what I’ve done and what I do if she wasn’t the person she is. She’s an unbelievable people person.“When I got the opportunity to play in England, she said, ‘Let’s go’. It was the same when we went to Ireland, all these different places. Everywhere we’ve gone, she loves meeting people and doesn’t like anyone being left out.“She’s a special person and a big part of who I am. She’s the main reason I do what I do.”(Getty Images)2018 – Bouncing back“I’m not in the photo – those celebrations are for the players and I’d had those when I played.“It was a difficult decision to leave Connacht to go to Bristol. When I signed in December they were in the Premiership but by the time I arrived they were in the Championship. That wasn’t part of the five-year plan and it was a tough battle (to get promoted) but it gave me time to get to know the team and implement things.“I also signed a few guys out of the Championship and I wouldn’t have known those players if we hadn’t been playing them. It was a really good foundation year.”(Getty Images)2019 – On the up“We experienced some adversity when we started in the Premiership; we were on the up and then got hammered by Worcester, which showed we weren’t where we wanted to be. Still, in that first year we were only five points away from the top six.“This photo, with Callum Sheedy, shows the growth to where we are now. Before Covid, we’d won five games in a row, which was a club record, and it’s a reflection of how far the group has come. Someone like Callum, who has come from the academy, is home-grown and displaced Ian Madigan, gives an insight into what we’re about.”Related: Get to know Bristol Bears fly-half Callum Sheedy(Bristol Bears/JMP)2020 – Back to back“There’s huge enjoyment in being back after lockdown and we’re proud of our new facilities. Although they’re brand spanking new, what makes them world class is the work we do in them and the relationships we build, otherwise it’s just a lovely building.“What I said to the players was that the previous place wasn’t class at all but we made it world class by our actions. Now we can take things to another level and that goes back to the ambition of our rugby programme – quality staff, quality players, world-class facilities. It’s a dream coming in – the view, the greenery… It’s the best facility I’ve ever been in.”last_img read more

first_imgFrom Florida Hospital ApopkaSo you’ve loaded the car and you’re heading to grandma’s house, the beach or local amusement parks. However, the idea of being trapped with screaming kids in tow might not be your idea of an ideal vacation. So just what is a parent to do? Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. “Knowing what to expect and offering lots of choices is the key to a successful trip,” says Chantelle Bennett, child life manager, with Florida Hospital.Whether you’re traveling by plane, train or automobile, here are a few tips to help keep your sanity.MedicalIf you fly, have younger children’s ears checked before you leave. Nobody wants to travel with a child who has an ear infection. If a child experiences in-flight ear pain, encourage swallowing by offering a bottle or pacifier to young children and a lollipop or gum to older children.To prevent dehydration (Traveler’s Diarrhea), give plenty of fluids and foods that are easy to digest, such as sports drinks and water.Children with medical concerns should carry their own identification, whether it be a medical necklace or an identification card. Include your telephone number, the physician’s name and number and the child’s medical concerns.Buy hand sanitizer – it works without water and is perfect for cleaning hands when you can’t find a restroom.Activities – Provided by the Child Life TeamPlay games. The license game is popular on cross-country journeys. Preschoolers can learn colors by identifying the colors of cars. Or, use letters of the alphabet to identify things seen through the windows.Use a map to track your progress. School-aged kids can answer questions such as, where are we; how much farther; and what’s the next town. Give each child a map and a highlighter.There’s nothing like a good long stretch to relieve car seat cramps. Look for parks, rest stops and other locations that offer a chance to stand up as well as an opportunity to play. Rule of thumb: a 20-minute break for every two hours on the road – especially with little ones.Bring water, juice and nutritious snacks.Write favorite songs on slips of paper and mix in a bag. Then have each child pull a slip of paper from the bag. Everyone in the car has to sing the song that’s written on the paper.Have children pack their own backpack so they can bring favorite toys, books and music.Prepare surprise packets. Wrap small prizes like presents and when the kids become antsy, give them an item to open. Plan for two a day – one midmorning, the other mid-afternoon. Include items such as books, travel games, snacks and small toys.Pack finger foods – like fruit, pretzels and cereal – to enjoy. These items may help kids adjust to airplane in-cabin pressure changes. For younger kids, use bottles, sippy cups or pacifiers to help ease inner ear pressure. For older kids, use chewing gum.Occupy kids with edible jewelry. Bring sweetened cereal rings and string licorice. They can string cereal on the licorice and make bracelets and necklaces. When they get hungry, they can snack off their finished products.Tips For Mom & DadPack each child’s clothes in gallon size plastic bags. Inside each bag, marked with the child’s name, is one day’s change of clothes. All kids have to do is reach into the suitcase and grab a bag. This eliminates the digging and hunting and cries when they can’t find everything.Always keep a recent photo of your children in your wallet or on your phone – in case you loose them in a crowed area, and need help in locating them.To easily identify your family at the airport, dress everyone in matching colors.

first_imgNews News IraqMiddle East – North Africa February 15, 2021 Find out more RSF_en RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Help by sharing this information Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” December 16, 2020 Find out more April 11, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern about fate of Iraqi journalists held hostage after kidnapped journalist found dead Reporters Without Borders today voiced deep concern about the fate of the 12 media personnel held hostage in Iraq after the security forces found the body of Othman Al-Mashhadani, the correspondent of the Saudi daily Al-Watan.“The figures are horrendous, but measures still have not been taken to put an end to the butchering of journalists and their assistants,” the press freedom organisation said. “The level of violence against media personnel is unprecedented. They are followed, kidnapped, tortured and then executed in a cowardly fashion, and none of the abductors is ever arrested. We call on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to do more than just pay homage to the slain journalists. He should mobilise his government to stop them being killed and protect the work they do.”Mashhadani’s body was found in Baghdad on 6 April. He had been shot in the head and body after being kidnapped on 4 April in the north Baghdad neighbourhood of Al-Ghazaliyah. The abductors had demanded a ransom but Mashhadani’s family had lost contact with them. Aged 29, Mashhadani had worked for Al-Watan since October 2006.The circumstances of his death are very similar to those of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty correspondent Khamail Khalaf, who was kidnapped by gunmen as she left her office in the west Baghdad university district on 3 April. Her bullet-riddled body was found on 5 April in another part of the capital. She had worked since 2004 for the Arabic service of RFE/RL, a US-funded station based in Prague.A second person has meanwhile died as a result of the 5 April attack on the headquarters of the Sunni television station Baghdad TV, in which a truck laden with explosives was driven at the building and then other assailants opened fire, killing deputy director Thaer Ahmed Jabr and injuring at least nine others, three of them seriously. The station announced that one of the latter died as a result of their injuries, but it did not give the victim’s name.The station is owned by the Iraqi Islamic Party and is run by Vice-President Tareq al Hashemi. Its regular programming was suspended for the rest of the day after the attack, replaced by readings from the Koran.
