Former Wales hooker opens up on gambling addiction that cost him thousands

first_imgFriday Feb 28, 2020 Former Wales hooker opens up on gambling addiction that cost him thousands Wales hooker Scott Baldwin has spoken openly a gambling addiction that has cost him countless amounts of money. The Harlequins front rower was speaking to BBC Scrum V, when he admitted to his troubled past.ADVERTISEMENTThe 34-times capped Wales hooker, who last played Test rugby in 2017, has received support from both the rugby community and fans.Baldwin, who infamously put his hand inside a lions cage while on tour in South Africa a few years back, said that digital gambling was his vice.The 31-year-old said that he was addicted to gambling and lost thousands of pounds in the process.“It’s one of those addictions that no one will know other than you or the people you want to know. Ultimately no one knows anything about people’s finances unless you want to tell them.“I’d be sitting in my one bedroom flat on my phone just gambling. It’s so accessible it’s ridiculous.“You just go online, sign into an account and just spin. I was like just literally tapping a button. That’s all it is, tapping a button waiting to see where the number lands. If you’ve got the number you win, if you haven’t you don’t.ADVERTISEMENT“Ultimately I’d always lose and no matter how much I’d win, I’d always want more and I’d always know deep down whenever I won I’d always lose. Because when I had a big win, at some point getting that big win I was in a hole.“I was down (money) significantly. You have to keep increasing your bets, you need to win more so you need to bet more. It’s not the winning looking back now which was the buzz, it was the chase of when you were losing rather than when you hit it to get it back.“It doesn’t make any sense, I’ve had this conversation with my wife since and she doesn’t understand it.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

How green can you go?

first_img‘Trinity has a £50,000 annual environment budget’ Exeter have installed on their facilities air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, solar thermal panels, and solar photovoltaic panels which together produce 25% of the college’s energy requirement.One Exeter student commented, “I think it’s good that we’re doing all we can and even if things are slightly more expensive for a while, I’m happy to pay if that means we’re doing our best for the environment.”Other schemes in the pipes, no pun intended, include plans to generate energy from food waste at Catz, and installing ground source heat pump coils in the lake at Worcester.Another issue which arose from our survey was how colleges were to become more energy efficient without defacing their buildings.Built in the 1960’s, St Catz was the only college in the survey which can boast to being 100% double glazed, only 23% of the colleges asked said more than half of their student accommodation is double glazed.Merton and St John’s both stated that this was due to having listed buildings as college room but secondary glazing has been used. St John’s student Domonic Parikh said, “Double glazing seems like a win-win, especially in student accommodation. “I’m not sure how bad double glazing would really look – certainly my building at John’s is hardly pretty in the first place.”Daniel Lowe, a member of the OUSU E&E committee, told Cherwell, “Double glazing in colleges is often very difficult due to many college buildings being listed, but King’s College London have shown how a grade I listed building can become energy efficient.” However, in other colleges such as Harris Manchester this is not standard, a spokesperson for the college said, “Recycling bins are available in rooms for a deposit and it is the responsibility of the student to empty them. “There are no current takers for this.”Winston Featherly-Bean, the college’s JCR President told Cherwell that “At Harris Manchester, a lot of students look for opportunities to recycle and help the environment.“I suspect that not everyone was aware of this option and so the next step is for the JCR Committee to make sure everyone does.”OUSU’s E&E Committee are currently carrying out a survey of Oxford colleges dubbed “Recycling with Honours” whereby colleges are rated on their facilities and given a tailor-made advice pack accordingly.Natalie Haley, the Recycling and Waste Officer, said, “We looked at the current state of recycling facilities in Oxford colleges and we were shocked at how bad the provisions could be hence decided to start this campaign.”St Peter’s E&E Rep, Sinead Lane revealed, “We’ve been trying to get comingled recycling for about a year and a half.“However after informing the bursar about the OUSU E&E committee’s campaign to rank all colleges by their environmental standards they’ve been much more helpful and now we’ve got comingled recycling.”Almost half of the colleges who responded to our survey had renewable energy on the table: most of them as part of new developments which are required to generate 20% of their own energy under Oxford City Council building regulations. One such construction is the Ship Centre owned by Jesus which has solar panels on the roof, providing an estimated 5-10% of the energy used for space heating and hot water. The college has further announced plans of a project to install solar thermal, solar photovoltaic or geothermal systems at all the student residences. Roberta Iley, Chairperson of the OUSU led Environment and Ethics Committee, commented: “At Oxford we contend with a very difficult college system that is unfortunately not very accountable relative to the university as a whole. “Inevitably, this means that many of the colleges’ environmental standards are lagging behind those seen in the departments and at other universities.”61% of the colleges who responded to us said that they did have recylcing bins in student rooms.center_img [mm-hide-text]%%IMG_ORIGINAL%%3387%%[/mm-hide-text] An investigation carried out by Cherwell finds that between Oxford colleges there is a large discrepancy between environmental approaches.Trinity was the only college in the survey who had a specific environmental budget which is set at £50,000 annually.When asked how much they spent on environmentally orientated matters, most colleges said but that refurbishments, alternate energy sources, and recycling facility costs all came out of their normal maintenance budget. Hertford said that last year, £101,000, 25% of annual maintenance budget was spent on environmental measures and they pledge this year to reduce food waste and use sustainably sourced products.Jesus College claim to have spent far more than this however, citing over £500,000 on environmental measures on average per year for the last five years. They concluded that they have, “the ambition of spending £500,000-£1,000,000 per year on projects with key environmental impacts.”A student at Jesus told Cherwell that while the figure was “a lot”, he thought that the environment was important and that therefore “while the college can afford it, it’s a good idea.” ‘Oxford has a really exciting potential to go green’ The 1829 building in London was refurbished in 2007 to maximise the effect of natural light and solar heat. It now saves around 383 tonnes of CO2 per year and £77,000.Other less conventional methods to encourage green thinking include OUSU’s Beds for Bees Campaign” which aims “to establish a network of ‘nectar beds’ across Oxford.”The flower beds planted at colleges and other sites will contain native plants that will provide nectar and pollen from March to November, making Oxford “a great place to bee!”Andrew Campbell Black, E&E Rep for Mansfield who are participating, said of the scheme, “I think it is quite important and something that Oxford colleges can do very easily. “They often only need to order a new batch of seedlings and the differences to the bees will be large.”Linacre, regarded by the E&E Chairperson Iley as “the most environmentally-college by [her] standards”, took some different approaches.To encourage students to do their bit, the college held a competition between different accommodation blocks which meant that some buildings have decreased their energy usage by a quarter.The winning students will be awarded with a, “free low carbon dinner in the small dining room”. Niel Bowerman, a physicist and environmental activist at Linacre told us, “In the past year we have cut our carbon emissions 13% compared with last year.“Everyone at Linacre has been working together to drive down our energy usage from students to the cleaning staff to the Principal himself.”Patrick Kennedy, from the E&E Committee, told Cherwell, “With the university ranked 89th in the national ‘Green League’, it’s more than clear that there’s definite space for improvement.“Oxford has a really exciting potential to turn green, and it’s great to see some colleges make positive changes.“However, many colleges are clearly lagging behind, and need to start thinking urgently about sustainability.”last_img read more

Widespread Panic Plays Classic Show, Gives Birthday Nod To Van Morrison In Nashville Opener [Photos/Videos]

first_imgWidespread Panic – “Diner”[Video: 6910835]Widespread Panic – “Blue Indian” (Partial)[Video: Brady Turner]For a full list of WSP’s upcoming performances, head to the band’s website.Setlist: Widespread Panic | Ascend Amphitheater | Nashville, TN | 8/31/18Set One: Pleas > One Arm Steve, Better Off, Holden Oversoul > Christmas Katie > Radio Child, Send Your Mind, Happy > Space Wrangler (75 mins)Set Two: Flicker > Jam > Bear’s Gone Fishin’ > I’m Not Alone, Diner > Ribs & Whiskey, 1 x 1 > Drums > Cease Fire > Surprise Valley, Blue Indian, Surprise Valley (99 mins)Encore: Pigeons (9 mins)Widespread Panic | Ascend Amphitheater | Nashville, TN | 8/31/18 | Photos: Daniel Ojeda Load remaining images On Friday night, Widespread Panic returned to the stage for the first time since LOCKN’ Festival with their first of three nights at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, TN this weekend. The first night contained nothing but classic heaters, nearly all being originals.The boys retook the stage with a nasty version of “Pleas” highlighted by Jimmy Herring‘s scorching guitar licks. “Pleas” segued directly into “One Armed Steve”, the comical tale of JoJo Hermann joining the band as sung by JoJo himself. For the first time since Mexico and only second time this year, the band dove into “Better Off” and, after a brief pause, executed a mean rendition of Space Wrangler cut “Holden Oversoul”. From there, the mad scientists of rock and roll transitioned dreamily into a smooth “Christmas Katie” and then directly into an electrifying “Radio Child”.Next, the band celebrated Van Morrison’s birthday with a version of his “Send Your Mind”, the only cover of the night, led by John Bell’s honest, standout vocals. Panic jammed “Happy”, an extended instrumental ditty, before closing the first set with a sentimental ode to the late Mikey Houser in the form of “Space Wrangler.”After a brief set break, the band returned to their devastation of Nashville with “Flicker”, a cut from their lesser-known  2008 album, Free Somehow. With a saucy interlude jam in between, bassist Dave Schools led the music into a sexy “Bear’s Gone Fishin’”. The nonstop flow continued with a suave transition into the “I’m Not Alone”’, a heartwarming take from 1999’s Til’ the Medicine Takes. Next, the band paired two crowd-favorites, taking “Diner” into “Ribs and Whiskey” for a salivating musical snack. John Bell tantalized during “Diner” with a memorable rap that involved waking up cold on a park bench and stumbling into a diner for a hot cup of coffee in the early morning hours. With JoJo at the helm, the boys told the infamous tale of Sugarman and the collapse of the Clear Creek Bridge with a gritty version of “1×1”.Most of the band left the stage as the percussionists hammered out an abusive “Drums” section before returning for a chilling “Cease Fire”, from their most recent album, 2015’s Street Dogs. To finish the second set, the band crafted a delicious acoustic sandwich that placed an ethereal, hauntingly sung “Blue Indian” in the middle of “Surprise Valley”. Finally, Widespread Panic returned with a frantic barrage of psychedelia on a lengthy “Pigeons” encore.The rock and roll wizards will reappear again tonight with their second of three nights in Nashville. Be safe and look after one another ladies and gents, see you there.Below, you can watch a selection of fan-shot footage and check out a gallery of photos from Widespread Panic’s Nashville opener courtesy of photographer Daniel Ojeda.Widespread Panic – “Send Your Mind” (Van Morrison cover, Partial)center_img Widespread Panic – “Space Wrangler” (Partial)last_img read more

Third annual research day on campus

first_imgOn Monday, the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) hosted their third annual Research Day, which promoted interdisciplinary communication and featured cancer research from laboratories across campus.Undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students presented 80 research posters at the event, which also included addresses from several speakers, program coordinator Angela Cavalieri said.“This year, we had posters representing cancer research from 28 HCRI labs,” she said. “The presenters are ND undergraduates, IUSM-SB [Indiana School of Medicine-South Bend] medical students, technicians and post-doctoral fellows. We’ve also had local oncologist participation as well as affiliated institutions such as RiverBend Cancer Services.”Cavalieri said presentations at the event involved both keynote speakers and local oncologists.“There will be presentations from ENSCII Fellows and then from faculty recipients of the Walther Cancer Foundation’s ABC Grant funding,” she said. “This year we were pleased to be host Dr. Christoph Reinhard, Sr. Director, Lilly Oncology, Pre-clinical Oncology Tailoring [as keynote speaker].”The three-year-old Harper Cancer Research Institute is the result of collaborative efforts between Notre Dame and IUSM-SB, Cavalieri said. The event, which was open to the public, was important to increasing awareness of the research being done on campus, she said.“This event was a logical answer to presenting research in the areas of chemistry and biochemistry, biological sciences, engineering, applied mathematics and psychology,” Cavalieri said. “Each year the event grows in scope and attendance.”Junior Matthew Metzinger placed second in the undergraduate category for his poster investigating the link between obesity and ovarian cancer. He said he was honored the judges viewed his research as worthy of an award.“My poster presentation focused on how CT scans can be used to quantify and visualize body fat in mice,” Metzinger said. “This work is important because we use CT scans in many of our projects that study the correlation between obesity and ovarian cancer.“While we know this correlation between obesity and ovarian cancer exists, very little is known in terms of how having a higher body mass index increases a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer.”Sophomore Katrina Burgos, an intern at the Institute, said the day was a great success and important to the greater Notre Dame community.“We had a great turnout,” she said. “I believe that Research Day is a great event for the campus and the community to see what researchers are working on at Harper, especially undergraduates who can be found in every lab.”Cavalieri said she attributes the success of the event to the teamwork of everyone involved.“We have a large number of very active Harper Cancer Research Institute members who assist with everything from judging the poster contests to emceeing the research presentations and a cast of behind-the-scenes people who make the event successful each year,” she said.“Collaboration is vital in scientific research, especially when it comes to cancer,” Burgos said. “Events like Research Day give scientists the opportunity to learn more from each other.”Tags: Harper Cancer Research Institute, Research Daylast_img read more

Daily Dirt: Outdoor News for June 3, 2013

first_imgYour outdoor news bulletin for June 3, the day astronaut Edward White became the first American to walk in space:More Climbing in the Red River GorgeClimbing in and around Kentucky’s Red River Gorge continues to expand due to the tireless efforts of climbing advocates in the area. Today, the Red River Gorge Climbers’ Coalition and the Access Fund announced the acquisition of 309 acres in Beattyville, Kentucky. Seven miles from one of their greatest land grabs, the Pendergrass-Murray Recreation Preserve, the new Miller Fork Recreation Preserve includes several miles of cliff, some with routes, but mostly unexplored, with the potential for hundreds of routes. The owner of the land actually approached the purchasing parties about selling to them due to their hard word, involvement in the community meetings, and the economic impact of climbers on the region. This purchase is another triumph for the RRGCC, the Access Fund, and climbers everywhere, as not only will this open up a new area of climbing, it will continue to alleviate stress on the other crags in the Gorge.Read more about the purchase here.A Walk in the ParkWell, that’s a slight misnomer. This is not so much a news item as inspiration. The Charlottesville Area Trail Runners, affectionately known as CAT, had a few members take off on a run this past weekend. They were not in a race, they were not going for a record, they were not sponsored, they simply wanted to run…the length of Shenandoah National Park…along the Appalachian Trail…in three days. The Appalachian Trail has 110 miles of trail that runs through the park, so this was no easy feat, obviously. On the CAT blog, Marc Griffin describes the run in sparing detail, but the most interesting part is how he joined the group, none of which he knew, on a whim through a friend’s email. That’s the life we should all be living.Read the ‘race’ report here.Free Fishing in VirginiaIf you want to go fishing this weekend, but don’t have a license, head for Virginia, where you can fish for free, with no license of any kind in fresh or salt water on June 7, 8, and 9. Designated Free Fishing Days by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the three days of fee free fishing are a way to attract interested non-anglers to the sport without making them pony up for a multi-day license. This is the perfect opportunity to get out and wet a line, or even better, take someone fishing who has never gone or who may not have access to equipment or locations. One more person fishing is one more person enjoying nature and reconnecting with the outdoors, and that is something we can all get behind.Read more about Va. Free Fishing Days here.last_img read more
