The day I broke my neck: Robert Paylor on his catastrophic injury

first_imgCan’t get to the shops? You can download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet or subscribe to the print edition to get the magazine delivered to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Putting the pieces back together: Paylor’s shirt (Robert Paylor) He can remember a time when he was staring at his toes, willing them to wiggle, almost reminiscent of that scene in Kill Bill. He would then take tentative first steps in a harness. He later walked the hallway. He kept checking boxes – with the help of his support system – and now he wants to turn 200 yards into 500, into something further.He wants to keep clocking up the reps. The image above of the team uniform that medics cut off him, pieced back together, is a fitting metaphor.It is worth pointing out that not everyone who suffers a serious injury can recover faculties lost to them and if that is the case it is not for a lack of effort or determination.Paylor adds: “There are some people that don’t get that, that aren’t that lucky. I’m lucky. What still got put in is the work.”“I forgive him, whether he’s sorry or not”After an interminable wait, a review was conducted by US rugby authorities into the incident in that final. But no blame was apportioned, no sanctions, no slaps on the wrist. According to Paylor, no one from the Arkansas side who were involved  in the incident ever made an effort to apologise to him or even accept they contributed to his catastrophic injury. It would have meant a lot to him.“I forgive him, whether he’s sorry or not,” Paylor reflects of the player who took him down. “For all those feelings of animosity, of looking behind my shoulder and looking back on the moment… I am focusing on my rehab, focusing on getting better, you know, the good things in my life. That’s what’s helped me. Because as you fast-forward through this story, so much happened on those first couple of days.“But so much more is happening since then. And being able to return back to UC Berkeley and graduate and while I’m doing that, I continue to rehab out of paralysis. To now where I can stand up in my walker on my own and walk if it’s within 200 yards.”Related: Jim Stewart on recovering from a dislocated neckAnother upshot of this is that the former second-row knows what will come next: full-time motivational speaking.There were touching moments where the PAC-12 collegiate athletic conference gave his story coverage or the emotional day, ten months after the accident, when he attended his first match back at Berkeley and broke down in tears during the American national anthem. But he now wants to create special moments for others, using his story.It all started with being asked to give a speech at his university. Then with the help of Cal rugby coach Jack Clark, he began beefing up his presentation. After doing internships with Intel, he gave them a talk. Seeing people laughing, crying, reacting to his words was powerful. He was hooked. There are incremental goals here too: he plans to deliver 50 speeches and reassess. He embraces where he is, adding: “This injury, it gave me a story.”Helping out: Cal coach Jack Clark (Getty Images)So how does he feel about rugby today?He quickly replies: “If somebody asked me, ‘Robert, would you play rugby again, if you could go back and do it again?’ The answer is yes, absolutely.“It’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ve developed lifelong relationships. It’s taught me so many lessons, how to be a resilient person, a tough person, how to be a good person. The culture of rugby is so incredible, even across team lines, I just couldn’t trade it in for anything. I would recommend that anybody play rugby.“Obviously, it’s important the world learns its lesson and I hope anyone who sees my story knows that these rules are here for a reason. And you can be a really physical player within the laws of the game. But if you go out here and break these something can happen, like what happened to Robert Paylor. It’s our duty to each other, to protect each other in that way.“But absolutely I love the game. And if I could go back, if I woke up in the day 6 May 2017, the day I broke my neck, I would still go out there and play.”No matter how far he travels, the next steps for Robert Paylor are huge. “I started going down and you know, since my head is down into my chest, once I hit the ground my face just slammed against my chest.“I felt this crunch in my neck. And then it was just poof everywhere on my body below my neck, I could not feel it. I could not move it. It’s that feeling when you wake up and your arm’s just totally gone asleep because it was hanging over the couch or something? It was that but everywhere and worse. I mean, I’m just lying there and I’m screaming.“I’d broken plenty of bones before – wrists, nose, whatever – playing football and rugby growing up. I was like, ‘Man, I felt it in my neck.’ I just broke my neck. I was completely certain that I’d done it. And I had seen these stories before, in news articles, you see them on TV and someone breaks their neck, and they don’t move or feel anything again for the rest of their life. And I’m thinking, ‘This is gonna be me’. You know, I’m not gonna graduate. I’m not gonna have a family.”Paylor says that he thought the worst, instantly. If you watch footage of the incident you can see team-mates signal for help – they know something is wrong. But they are metres out from a try in a major final and the referee has not halted play. Paylor says he was screaming, but his diaphragm was also partially paralysed at that moment.Team medics knew instantly they had a major issue on their hands, with Paylor unable to feel anything or squeeze his hand.At the hospital, he was delivered some stark news. As he recollects, the doctor told him that he had a spinal cord injury at the C5 and C6 and that it was “really bad”. He says he was told he would never walk again, never move his hands again. He needed emergency spinal fusion surgery and, by the way, it’s life threatening.That winning feeling: The Cal rugby team in 2017 (Getty Images)The surgery was a success and Paylor is full of praise for his carers, yet the initial diagnosis is something that spurs him on.Rehab is tortuous work and the issue of exorbitant cost of healthcare quickly crept in. He contracted pneumonia while in care and, unable to cough, relied on nurses and respiratory therapists to help him clear the fluid in his lungs every three hours.However, the business administration student says with all the knocks and painful talk he felt it was “just static – I was immediately very determined that I wasn’t going to accept this as my permanent reality”. He was also helped out by his best friend’s mum setting up a GoFundMe page.Today Paylor has the use of his hands, he can stand up out of a chair and into his walker, unaided. He can walk 200 yards. He is setting incremental goals for himself every day. The ultimate aim is to never need his wheelchair again. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img I stood up out of my bed and into my walker today. This is a huge step towards me being able to walk around my house on my own. Getting that much closer to saying goodbye to my wheelchair! pic.twitter.com/4Gn1yCcLxp— Robert Paylor (@RobertPaylor5) March 19, 2020 It is two days before his final exams, at a time of unprecedented global unease, yet Robert Paylor is calmness personified. Then again, the UC Berkeley student’s collegiate experience has been vastly different to your average kid.“We’re going in for this National Championship versus Arkansas State and I think, ‘Yeah, this one’s in the bag – we got these guys’,” the former Cal lock tells us over Skype, recalling the fateful day in 2017 when everything changed.“This is kind of the big time in American rugby, you’re in the collegiate National Championship. And it was about just a minute into the game. They committed a penalty, so we kicked it into touch. We’re like six metres out. It’s obviously a mauling situation and we had a very effective maul. If we were within ten metres, it was going in.“I’m kind of one of these big guys, so I’m lifting in this lineout, then get to my position and we’re driving right away. The opposing team immediately start committing penalties. Three guys are coming from the side. He’s got me bound by the leg, which everyone does and it usually doesn’t get called but it’s illegal, a penalty.“Then this one player (grabs) me around the neck. So my chin is pinned to my chest, and I’m driving this thing, standing up a little just because there’s this battle going on and it’s like blood in the water because we’re four metres out. So I dip my shoulder level back down to get parallel. The ref’s not calling (any infringements) and I don’t even think we were playing any advantage at that point. Then this other guy came in and chops me down by the legs. In 2017 the student was severely injured in America’s National Championship final. Here’s what has happened since…last_img read more

Photo: Jeanie Munn.[Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi] In grateful recognition of her decades of service to the Diocese of Mississippi and The Episcopal Church, Anita Parrott George was named an honorary canon to the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew in Jackson, Mississippi, at the 192nd Annual Council, which convened in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, January 25-27.George is a lifelong Episcopalian and a Mississippi native who co-chairs the Task Force on Racial Reconciliation in the Diocese of Mississippi. She also was an advisory board vice chair for the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation at the University of Mississippi.She was elected to serve as a deputy to General Convention seven times, and was involved in much of the church’s anti-racism work. George also served two terms on the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church.George studied at Alcorn State University, the University of Florida and Mississippi State University, earning a doctorate and undertaking numerous postdoctoral courses. She devoted 41 years of her to life teaching young men and women in the field of education. In 2002, she was conferred the designation of professor emerita of education at Mississippi State University.All of George’s work is grounded in an effort to live her Christian confession of faith in a culture in which racism’s deep roots affected her life and the lives of all people of color. Halting racism’s societal and individual wounds became a life’s work through education.In a recent reflection, George wrote that much progress has been made. “Yes, we have been busy with efforts toward racial reconciliation and eliminating racism, and much has changed, many have been transformed. Yet, glaring statistics point to alarming trends, suggestive of the resurgence of our troubled racial past. … We must go beyond the very necessary outer work of training and enactment of laws and programs to the solitude of our inner work of formation, transformation, and re-formation,” she wrote.The work that George has done in The Episcopal Church and beyond has helped pave the way for the necessary interior work of soul-searching to be accomplished. Her efforts to present racial reconciliation events throughout the nation are all couched in the understanding that the elimination of racism can only be reached when the work begins in a journey within.Family and friends from throughout the diocese and the nation were present at the council’s closing Eucharist. Tears of joy were shed by many during the presentation, which included a video greeting from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.“We celebrate the life’s work of Dr. Anita George in appreciation of her faith and devotion to help make Christ’s work of reconciliation be felt more deeply in this world. Anita, your ministry is a blessing to us all.” said the Rt. Rev. Brian Seage, bishop of Mississippi.— The Rev. Scott Lenoir is the editor of the Mississippi Episcopalian.

Women change history: BUILD WORKERS WORLD!

first_imgMarch is Women’s History Month. Though WW reports the struggles of poor, working-class women of all nationalities year round, we highlight them during March. It was women in Workers World Party who revived the militant tradition of International Women’s Day in the streets of New York in 1970. Our newspaper always commemorates this socialist holiday with a roundup of women’s protests for freedom, justice and equality the world over.As Marxists, we strive not just to honor history but to make it — to bring about the huge changes needed to turn society upside down and put the workers and the oppressed first. Struggle is the only way to bring about change — like the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement, started by women and transgender activists, that address racism head on and demand reparations for centuries of oppression. The slogan “We won’t take it any more” sums it up.While all issues are women’s issues, it’s important to recognize that women are powering the low-wage workers’ fight for $15 an hour and a union. That’s because 70 percent of low-wage workers — salespeople and janitors in big-box stores, bank tellers and servers in restaurants — are women, most often women of color and single mothers struggling to provide for their families.If you appreciate WW’s year-round coverage of struggles that assert and advance the rights of women, it’s time to join the Workers World Supporter Program and help build the newspaper. We established the WWSP 39 years ago so readers could invest in the paper and promote working-class truth needed to make revolutionary change.If you appreciate that coverage and more, it’s time to join the Workers World Supporter Program. We established it in 1977 so readers could help us publish anti-racist, working-class truth and build the many campaigns needed to make qualitative, revolutionary change that crushes capitalism and ushers in socialism.Write checks to Workers World and mail them, with your name and address, to 147 W. 24th St., 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10011.

Former Excelsior editor stabbed to death : sixth journalist murdered this year

first_imgNews RSF_en MexicoAmericas Organisation NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News Reporters Without Borders voiced dismay today on learning of the murder of José Manuel Sánchez Nava, the former editor of the daily Excelsior and in recent months a columnist for the daily El Sol de México. If it is confirmed he was killed because of what he wrote, it will bring to six the number of Mexican journalists killed this year in connection with their work.“We hope the police will quickly establish whether Sánchez’s murder was linked to his journalistic activities, and will punish those responsible,” the press freedom organisation said. “We insist that investigators should thoroughly explore the possibility that he was killed because of what he wrote, especially in view of his recent revelations about the federal government’s role in the Excelsior’s sale. The investigation must therefore be transparent.”Aged 53, Sánchez was found stabbed to death on the morning of 16 November in his Mexico City apartment by the woman who comes to clean. He has been knifed six times in the neck and chest. Investigators think he had been dead for about eight hours when his body was found. There was no sign of a break-in and nothing of any value was missing.Sánchez began his work his career with the Excelsior in 1976. From 1982, he was its Washington correspondent until he took over as editor in 2004 and held the post until the following year. He has written several investigative books and for the past two months had been a contributing columnist for El Sol de México.Launched on 7 November, his latest book, El Asalto Final (“The Final Round”), was extremely critical of the attitude of President Vicente Fox’s government towards the Excelsior before it was bought by Olegario Vázquez Raña, a businessman reportedly linked to the present government.He claimed in the book that, while he was still the Excelsior’s editor, he was promised by Fox in person and by his interior minister, Carlos Abascal, that the government would step in to rescue the newspaper, which was in serious financial difficulties. The promises were not kept, enabling Vázquez to buy it for 536 million pesos (38 million euros) in a questionable manner. Sánchez also described acts of sabotage against the newspaper and its printing press prior to the sale.

Gavin Newsom announced today, saying vaccine supply is expected to quickly skyrocket.The state has been receiving roughly 1.8 million doses a week, but the state anticipates receiving 2.5 million weekly doses by early April, then more than 3 million per week by the end of that month.“With vaccine supply increasing and by expanding eligibility to more Californians, the light at the end of the tunnel continues to get brighter,” Newsom said.The news comes as Pasadena and LA County approach the even-less restrictive Orange Tier that would increase indoor capacity at several businesses, including local restaurants.COVID-19 vaccine eligibility has been slowly expanding in the state in recent weeks. Most recently, eligibility was extended to people aged 16 and over with serious underlying health conditions that put them at risk of severe illness or death from COVID. An array of essential workers are already eligible for vaccines, such as teachers and food workers. Health care workers were the first to be given access to the vaccine, and everyone in the state aged 65 and over is already eligible.Thursday’s announcement means everyone in the state aged 16 and up will be eligible for the shots in mid-April. However, given the state’s vast population, it will still take months to provide the vaccines to everyone who wants one.Newsom said the state will have the capacity to administer 4 million shots per week by the end of April.Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state’s health and human services director, said the announcement means “we are even closer to putting this pandemic behind us.”“However, we are not there yet,” he said. “It will take time to vaccinate all eligible Californians. During this time, we must not let our guard down. It is important that we remain vigilant, continue to wear masks and follow public health guidance.” EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News Governor Expands COVID Vaccine Access Starting April 1 By month’s end vaccine will be available to everyone 16 and older CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Thursday, March 25, 2021 | 12:12 pm Top of the News Make a comment Community News Business News Subscribe STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week center_img Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Your email address will not be published.

Since its establishment in 1928, the firm has traditionally concentrated in the areas of real estate, creditor’s rights (foreclosure, bankruptcy, evictions, REO, title, closings, and commercial collections) and related litigation.Cyprexx Services has been providing quality and cost-effective property preservation services for over 25 years.
