Keble hall manager bows out

first_imgWell known around college for his unchanging  attire of bowtie and waistcoat, McHugh was given a fond farewell by Keble students in the college’s inaugural Summer Hall. James Newton, the then JCR President, presented him with a framed bowtie and waistcoat as a token of the JCR’s appreciation.The dress code for the evening was ‘smart with a hint of Gerard’,  and as such many students, male and female, attended wearing the hall manager’s preferred neck wear.McHugh, who attended Exeter College (matriculating in 1975), said he intends to do very little in his retirement. “I have some trips abroad planned, but other than that I think I’ll just relax and listen to some cricket on the wireless.”He will also return to Keble on occasion to host his quiz nights, planning one for Freshers’ Week. As the new JCR President, Sean Ford, said, “Gerard has made a fantastic contribution to college life, but his retirement is not the end. Gerard will still be returning for the quizzes, hopefully for years to come.”Despite being an Exeter alumnus, McHugh waxed lyrical about his time at Keble. When asked for his favourite memories, he explained, “From the minute I walked in, in 2002, I’ve been made to feel so welcome, so part of the place, it’s just been a delight. I can’t think of anything particular, except for maybe last Friday when you all made that big fuss!”The ‘big fuss’ refers to the several minutes of applause and cheering that followed Newton’s short speech of farewell and thanks at Summer Hall. One student even knocked over a lamp in his enthusiasm, having stood up to toast the popular hall manager.Despite several assertions to the contrary by Keble students, McHugh expects Keble to manage very well without him in the coming years. “It will cope perfectly well. It got along for 132 years without me after all!”last_img read more

Week 17 Fantasy Rankings: Kicker

first_imgHas anyone ever uttered the phrase, “Kickers win fantasy football championships”? If not, they probably could — the problem is that it’s harder to predict kickers on a week-to-week basis than any other fantasy football position. But for one final time, we’ll try to do that in our Week 17 fantasy kicker rankings, which prominently feature Zane Gonzalez, Matt Gay, and Younghoe Koo.The biggest variable that will present itself in Week 17 is weather. Most games are in warm locales or domes this week, but there are a few potentially worrisome spots. Oakland takes on the Broncos in Denver, which is normally a great kicking spot for Daniel Carlson and Brandon McManus in the thin air, but we’ll have to see if there will be snow on the field impacting things. The Giants host the Eagles, the Patriots host the Dolphins, the Bengals host the Browns, and the Bills host the Jets. Thankfully for us, most kickers in those games aren’t even worth using in fantasy in good weather, so stick with the names near the top of our rankings that shouldn’t have big weather issues. WEEK 17 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/STIt will be worth watching one injury in Week 17, and that’s Greg Zuerlein’s quad. He kicked through it in Week 16 and probably is fine, but there could be some whispers throughout the week and you wouldn’t want to be unprepared for an absence. Otherwise, though, relevant kickers have remained mostly healthy.MORE: Which players are sitting out Week 17? Hopefully your fantasy matchup doesn’t come down to the kicker spot. But if it does, you’ll be able to tell your friends that a kicker won you a fantasy championship.WEEK 17 PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 17 Fantasy Rankings: KickerWEEK 17 DFS:DK Cash | DK GPP | Y!

In every single country where we play football there should be no racist abuse.”Globally, 74% of fans want FIFA to consider previous racist abuse when awarding countries international tournaments. Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Fans in Norway (95%), Sweden (94%), and Brazil (93%) felt the most comfortable, followed by the UK (92%).Mr Starkey-Midha added: “In a stadium like Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge that is still a few thousand fans who have issues with black players, with the integration of the BAME community into football. That’s not to say all those fans are standing up and racially abusing players, but there are clearly issues there that we have to work on.”The results revealed a different picture in the Middle East.Only 11% of fans in Saudi Arabia said they would feel comfortable with a footballer of a different ethnicity to them playing for their club or country, while the figures for Lebanon (15%) and the United Arab Emirates (19%) were also very low.
