Cooking Up a Storm: Dan Simons Shows What It Takes to be a Successful Restaurateur
Huffington Post - over 1 year
For some owners, restaurants are all about the business, about making money, or even about basking in the spotlight, accumulating accolades and being the best of the best. For others, it is simply about producing good food and drink. For Dan Simons, it is all of that, and more. Restaurants are a microcosm of society, and a dynamic foundation to face some of our planet's most pressing and interesting issues, from food sources and quality, to protecting the environment and the communities in which we live and eat, to creating equal footing and career paths for hard working and dedicated employees. Apparently, this full package approach is working. Dan Simons, and his partner, Michael Vucurevich, are leaving a noticeable impression on the restaurant industry. With over 60 percent of restaurants failing in their first year alone, their Farmers Restaurant Group is defying those odds as they ramp up to open three more restaurants in their popular farmer-owned brand in the next year,...

Rugby Union: Dickson is better for last year’s experience
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Lee Dickson credits the character-building experience of last season for placing him in contention to start England’s opening QBE International against Australia. The promise of 2011-12, when he won seven of his nine caps, faded as he slipped from contention to leave Ben Youngs and Danny Care duelling for the scrum-half duties. Each week Dickson would be released by England and return to Northampton where he would reflect on what it took to propel his way back into Stuart Lancaster’s selection plans. An explosive start to the current season that has forced high-profile summer arrival Kahn Fotuali’i to spend more time on the Saints bench than predicted was rewarded when Care was the scrum-half cut from the squad on Tuesday. The Wallabies visit Twickenham a week tomorrow and Dickson is in contention once more. “That wasn’t a nice position to be in last season, but you’re on the journey with the team,” he said. “You don’t want to be going home, but sadly some people have to and las...

Leeds Carnegie have big chance to shine says Sir Ian
Yorkshire Evening Post - almost 5 years
Lions legend Sir Ian McGeechan believes Leeds Carnegie have a great chance to make history on Bank Holiday Monday when they take on Newcastle Falcons in their Championship play-off first leg clash, kick-off 3.15pm. McGeechan returned home to Yorkshire last summer to become chairman of Carnegie, the club formed from the merger of his old club, Headingley, and Roundhay. Monday’s game will mark the club’s 600th competitive game since that merger in 1992 and McGeechan believes the young Leeds squad can write another memorable chapter of history for the club. Looking ahead to the game, McGeechan said: “We need to have the confidence to keep playing our rugby and put Newcastle under pressure. It is back to square one now. Newcastle finished top and have had a fantastic season but it is now 0-0 with four halves of rugby that will decide whether our season carries on for another two games. We have got two games against them now that I know, if we get our rugby right, we can ask some serio...

Care now handed England lifeline by Lancaster
Yorkshire Post - almost 6 years
FORGIVING England coach Stuart Lancaster is ready to give repentant Danny Care another chance to rescue his threatened international career. The Leeds-born scrum-half has been banished from the Red Rose squad since January following two alcohol-related incidents but is primed to return for the summer tour of South Africa. Lancaster confirmed yesterday the former Leeds Tykes star is in his plans after proving he is “maturing” following further unsavoury skirmishes. Since his initial suspension, Harlequins player Care has also been arrested in his home city for being drunk and disorderly and arrested over an alleged sexual assault which he vehemently denies and is still being investigated. However, Lancaster, who worked closely with the player as a youngster at Headingley, believes he has started fulfilling his promises to alter his off-field ways and show the requisite commitment and professionalism needed to perform at the highest level. Care’s on-field form in the interim has ...
