The rise of Kazuki Himeno

first_imgIt has all been noticed off the park too, as Sky NZ presenter Honey Hireme-Smiler tells Rugby World: “He has quickly become one of the crowd favourites here, with his individual growth and ability to adapt his technical and tactical understanding of how we play the game. All to become a dominant force in the Highlanders.“His work-rate around the field, barn-storming runs with ball in hand, and punishing defence makes him an all-round player and earnt him the respect of his team-mates and the NZ fans.”It’s a sentiment that rings true with Collins’s recollections. The centre points to crucial turnovers as vital to their run this season, and he joins the small crowd gathering to mention Himeno’s carrying.  The rise of Kazuki HimenoA buoy in the golden torrent, you would never believe that it was the 22-year-old’s Test debut. But as Australian points came thick and fast in the Yokohama exhibition, Japan’s next big thing Kazuki Himeno was getting through some impressive ugly work.“He made three turnovers on his own that game,” remembers lock Wimpie van der Walt of a day in 2017, when he and a green Himeno took their Test bows. “To do that against Australia, that’s world class, man. He scored an awesome try too.”In 2017, Himeno took a major step in his rugby journey. It was one of a few, chopping in at a percussive pace. Earlier that same year, Himeno had been a star for Teikyo University. Shortly after that, he was singled out by Rugby World Cup-winning coach Jake White as the man to captain Toyota Verblitz, despite his tender age. Then he hit that Test stage as a rookie Jamie Joseph had seen something in.Related: Japan coach Jamie Joseph on facing the LionsToday, he is a fixture for the Brave Blossoms, a workaholic No 8 respected outside of his country and within. He is a Super Rugby Trans-Tasman finalist with the Highlanders and a popular export into a game that is not always so forgiving for the uninitiated. He has not only taken to New Zealand’s game, but he has thrived.Yet in order to understand how he got here, you have to heed the signs he showed along the way.“His debut game for Toyota was unbelievable and that just led into a rookie season that got him rookie of the year,” explains former Verblitz team-mate Ruan Smith.“I was in my third year. When I first saw him, I couldn’t believe the size of him, as a back-rower, and his athletic ability, his skill. He’s first across the line, a strong lineout jumper… Just everything about him was an immediate standout.“The strength in his game has been ball in hand, especially in the wider channels, but he’s just explosive through contact. He has good footwork for a big guy, and he’s a natural leader. When he first came, Jake was the coach. He made him captain and in Japan that just doesn’t happen – there’s a hierarchy when it comes to age. Everyone was shocked, but he just ran with it; everyone just ran with it.Himeno scores on debut (Getty Images)“They just saw that he was a special player. The captaincy came so easy, so naturally for him. You just saw from day one.”Smith describes him as well-mannered and softly spoken off the field. “He loves kids,” the front-rower explains of the gentle brute. When Smith’s daughter was born, Himeno was always willing to distract the wee one. And respect: that shone through.What has impressed others is his willingness to take the pointers some provide and sharpen his game with them. Can’t get to the shops?

Joseph had already made history of his own, leading the Highlanders to a Super Rugby title in 2015, and it just so happens that his national assistant Tony Brown is also in charge at ‘Landers now (although Brown has been absent for the Trans-Tasman campaign due to his Japan commitments).Previously, Japanese scrum-half Fumiaki Tanaka had become a cult hero in Dunedin. This season Himeno headed over. As Highlanders centre Michael Collins explains, the forward found a way – instantly – to make it work.“When Himeno arrived he fitted in straight away. He had learnt all the players’ names and nicknames in isolation, so he had a good intro.“He’s a really diligent trainer in the gym and on the field. He actually lived with me and another mate for the first half of the season and his English has improved massively. He fit in well at home, and he found a favourite Japanese restaurant so he had lunch and dinners there.” TAGS: HighlightJapan LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Van der Walt has seen Himeno play across the second and back rows. And while his lineout work may have been good for Toyota, it’s an area van der Walt saw the youngster drill the details on, with national coach Joseph.The lock laughs that back in the early days, his Japanese wasn’t great and Himeno’s English wasn’t either, but they could meet in the middle after a few beers. And then when they recently met in a Top League quarter-final, the national team-mates wagered a dinner on the loser. Van der Walt is still racking his brain for where to take the back-rower when they are both in the same country again…For now, though, Himeno is in New Zealand with the Highlanders.It was a move that made sense, if you assume that the now-26-year-old wants to continue climbing upwards. Smith has seen the steady improvement since the 2019 World Cup, when Japan made history by beating Ireland and Scotland on their way to getting out of the group for the first time, and then (according to Opta) he was the only forward to gain 200-plus metres with ball in hand. As he charges into a Super Rugby final with the Highlanders, we study the Japanese superstar Sure he had played in a previous guise of Super Rugby, with the Sunwolves, but in ‘Landers colours he has stood out for the Kiwis. This season, he was named their Rookie of the Year. Everything points to an impressive future. But should we appreciate him more now?Van der Walt interjects, surmising: “If he played for a (traditional Tier One nation) he would be recognised as one of the best in his position. That’s how highly I rate him. He is a world-class player, for me.”Whether you see him up there too is largely irrelevant at this point: you have to respect the hustle. In staying on to play the Trans-Tasman final, he is now likely to miss out on Japan’s showdown with the British & Irish Lions 2021. But he has taken a big step leaving his home to play amongst the best in New Zealand and Australia. As one of them. Kazuki Himeno carries into the Blues (Getty Images) last_img read more

In the interview with ENS, Welby relayed his visit to Bor, in Jonglei State, where he said he saw dead bodies lining the streets and where he consecrated a mass grave.In the midst of evil, Welby said that he saw God “in the extraordinary fact that after half a century of civil war, and the hardening that that causes, that we could stand in Bor and see people weeping with compassion because the spirit of God still moves with love in their hearts.”But even as hope emerged on May 9 when the two rivals agreed to a truce and to forming a transitional government ahead of fresh elections, fighting has continued in parts of South Sudan. The humanitarian crisis is vast and the South Sudanese are desperately in need of the world’s support. The conflict has left thousands dead and some 1.5 million people have been displaced.The church in South Sudan has played a major role in peace and reconciliation. Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul, chair of the national reconciliation program, was summoned to the May 9 meeting between the two rivals in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Before Kiir and Machar signed the peace deal, Deng held their hands and led a prayer.Meanwhile, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has called the Episcopal Church to prayer and action for South Sudan, saying she would like Episcopalians “to learn more about the situation, to be in contact with their legislators, to pray, and to reach out to the Sudanese in their own neighborhoods.”She was joined May 9 by heads of the North American Lutheran and Anglican churches in calling the church to prayer, especially as the Episcopal Church calendar commemorates the Martyrs of Sudan on May 16.The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations provided a template for an advocacy letter to U.S. President Barack Obama, urging him to support peace and reconciliation in South Sudan.For further information about the crisis in South Sudan and resources for prayer, study and action, visit: www.episcopalchurch.org/sudan.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. May 14, 2014 at 9:41 pm Dear Ms. Fletcher:There is a time and place for everything. The points you raise are both valid and deserves attention. To piggy-back on this powerful and heartfelt video from Archbishop Welby about a suffering land and its people, and to use it as a back handed attack on Presiding Bishop Jefferts-Schori, is mean spirited of you and contrary to the mind of Christ.Last Sunday, we were reminded in our Gospel reading about the Good Shepherd “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away.” (John 10:11-12)I hope you will reflect on the this text as you and your respectable upper middle class friends surreptitiously encouraged us to “look after our own” and not bother with those people who live in a “far-off land.”Will you, Ms. Fletcher, follow the Good Shepherd, or the hired hand?

This serviced apartment and hotel in the suburbs of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, sits between Phnom Penh International Airport and the city’s downtown, in an area frequented primarily by foreign tourists and business travelers. In typical service apartments, shared spaces are fully separated from private living spaces, but in this project the client anticipated that people of many different nationalities would be using the facility, and therefore requested that the living spaces be as open as possible to the public spaces in order to create an environment that encourages casual interactions within the course of everyday life. Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeThe structural frame that comprises the building’s skeleton is strongly constructed and intentionally contrasts with the scale of the interior spaces, creating the sensation that one is lost in backstreets even while inside the building. This helps to actively connect private and public zones. The generous common space delineated by the frame blocks direct sunlight while letting breezes pass through, providing a comfortable place to escape the hot, humid Southeast Asian climate. The private rooms are linked to the common areas by large windows and doors that open up the space and gently connect residents who would ordinarily tend to be disconnected from one another.  Save this picture!Section 01To encourage use by non-residents, the building allows for the simultaneous operation of a hotel and includes a restaurant with an open-air café on the first floor and a pool on the top floor. Collaboration with the adjacent sports club further helps to attract customers and enhance the project’s contribution to local employment and economic development. Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeWith regard to construction, we found that the precision of local general contractors was still developing, but by separating structural elements such as posts and beams from interior features, we were able to eliminate the need to rely on precision construction.

When he is not reporting, he is either playing basketball, watching a sporting event or just eating food. Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Photo courtesy: TCU ASO Caleb Jakanahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caleb-jakana/ Linkedin printA show of African heritage can be seen on TCU’s campus weekly thanks to the African Student Organization.For “Dashiki Tuesday,” TCU students of African descent take a break from American attire and try dashikis– traditional African attire in order to display their heritage. This weekly tradition was started by the African Student Organization two years ago.                                                                            (Photo courtesy: TCU ASO)Philip Kafuluma, president of ASO, said weekly traditions like dashiki Tuesday gives students an opportunity to show their appreciation for African culture. “It gives them an opportunity to express their love for their roots and it’s also an opportunity for non-Africans because there are a lot of American people who have bought dashikis,” Kafuluma said. “It’s a time where members of ASO and non-members can show we care about Africa.”Kafuluma said that when he wears a dashiki, it gives him an opportunity to teach people more about the attire and why people wear the item. “Personally, every single time I’ve worn it I’ve had someone either compliment me or ask me ‘what are you wearing?’” Kafuluma said. “I usually take that opportunity to tell people where I am from and also to tell about the dashiki itself.”Claire Janat, a member of ASO, said by wearing her dashiki that she can express her culture by displaying her roots, without a verbal explanation. “It is a way to express my African culture without explicitly saying ‘I am African,’” Janat said. More than anything, the dashiki embodies African culture, and it is a great conversation starter, Kafuluma said.“People always associate African culture with lots of color, lots of flash,” Kafuluma said. “The dashikis usually represents that.”The History of The DashikiThe garment that originated in Africa and has become popular throughout the United States. The dashiki has a myriad of meanings from fashions statements, to a form of rebellion and, for today’s owners, a form of pride or appreciation for the culture and history. The dashiki is a bright, colorful garment that usually covers the torso, but there are also versions of the dashikis that are in the form of dresses and suits. The suit dashiki reaches the knees and is traditionally worn with slacks.The dashiki originated from West Africa, specifically Nigeria and is seen as a unisex garment.The name dashiki comes from the word “dan Shiki” or “ dan ciki”, which means “shirt” in Yoruba and Hausa, languages spoken in West Africa. Oba, meaning King in Yoruba, Ofuntola Oseijeman  Adelabu Adefunmi, also know as Walter Eugene King, was the man who started the circulation of the garment in the United States in the 1960s; King left America to go to Haiti to be immersed into African culture from indigenous Africans. King returned to America and started the small-scale manufacturing of African attire in the United States, including the dashiki. Jason Benning, Milton Clarke, Howard Davis and William Smith started the large-scale production of the dashiki in America under their brand New Breed Ltd, which was based in Harlem, New York. Jason Benning was the man who coined the modern term “dashiki”. During the civil rights movement, the dashiki went against the men’s fashion status quo with its bright colors and the piece not being tucked into the pants; the dashiki was used to protest against the injustices against minorities and society’s flippant attitude towards African Americans. Prominent figures who wore the piece, during the political struggles of the 1950s and 1960s, include Jim Brown, Sammy Davis Jr. and many more; the dashiki also made appearances in movies and weekly TV shows: Soul Train, Uptight and Putney Swope.  The Dashiki TodayAs time has progressed, celebrities and prominent music figures have worn the dashiki as fashion statements because of the dashiki’s bright colors or to show their African roots– such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Zendaya, Wale and Sarah Jessica Parker.Today, the dashiki is seen on special occasions such as weddings, graduations, church and Kwanzaa.To learn more about the dashiki or ASO contact TCU’s ASO’s page.

The Single Bench of Justice Brijesh Sethi will now be providing an early hearing in leave to appeal filed by the investigating agencies against the acquittals of A Raja and others in the 2G Spectrum case.The court has decided to hear the matter on a day-to-day basis, with the first hearing being scheduled on October 05.Appearing for the ED, ASG Sanjay Jain had informed the court that he had already concluded his arguments on leave to appeal in the CBI matter and even the Respondents had started making their submissions before the normal proceedings of the court were suspended due to the lockdown.Mr Jain had further argued that since the concerned judge who has heard this case so far is going to retire in November, the hearing in the main matter shall be expedited. In light of this, Mr Jain orally asked the court to list the hearing on this matter 3-4 times a week, 2-3 hours each. He said:’One of the biggest trials was conducted as per the directions of the Supreme Court on the large expense of public exchequer. Therefore, the public interest lies in seeing this matter reaching its logical conclusion. Any delay in this matter would further burden the public exchequer.’Mr Jain had also submitted that he doesn’t mind filing replies to the applications moved by the Respondents, however, such applications should only be entertained after concluding the hearing on leave to appeal.The counsel for the Respondents, including Mr Vijay Aggarwal and Ms Tarannum Cheema, had opposed the application for early hearing on the ground that it doesn’t serve the public interest, the agencies have not given any reasons for this urgency, and it would be very difficult to ensure fair representation for the accused persons due the limitations caused by the pandemic.Mr Siddharth Aggarwal, appearing for one the Respondents, had also argued that judicial conscience should not allow early hearing in this application when the admitted appeals of people who are languishing in prisons are not getting listed before the court.In December 2017, A Raja, Kanimozhi and 17 others were acquitted by a Special CBI Judge in both the CBI and ED cases.The Special Judge had opined that the prosecution had “miserably failed” to prove the charges against the accused persons.Challenging the said order of the Special Judge, both the ED and the CBI had approached the Delhi High Court in March 2018.Next Storylast_img read more
