Summer Tests: Lions XV picked on form

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight Last time out: George North leads the celebrations as Australia are beaten We have gone for a 6-2 split here, as England did against the Australians, as we are take the All Blacks on up front and will need the cavalry to come charging on in the second half. George is unlucky he plays in the same position as his national captain whilst McGrath and Nel will keep the pressure on at scrum-time whilst Lawes covers back and second row and has been revitalised.Close call: Rhys Webb is very close to a starting spot for the LionsJones is world-class and CJ Stander gets the vote ahead of Jack Clifford. Rhys Webb is unlucky not to start and with only one spot left on the bench Daly covers all the other bases despite just nine minutes of action in Australia. The Summer Tests pitted North v South, with England’s players doing themselves no harm in selection for the 2017 Lions tour, here’s our picks based on form… Hooker – Dylan Hartley (England, captain)You would have got decent odds about Hartley playing for England again after he missed the World Cup but was given the national captaincy and has helped revive the set-piece. Throws in well, scrums well and that is what good hookers do, everything else is froth. Tough, abrasive and an absolute revelation as captain to anyone unfamiliar with his stint in the job at Northampton.Good talker: Dylan Hartley has been a huge success as England captainLocks – Maro Itoje (England) and Iain Henderson (Ireland)Tough on Alun Wyn Jones and George Kruis, but Itoje and Henderson were the outstanding locks in the summer Tests. One day in the future Itoje might have a bad game but it might not be anytime soon and Henderson was massive when the chips were down and Ireland were reduced to 13 and 14 men in their first Test win in Cape Town over the Boks. Plenty of contenders here, with Jonny Gray not far away.Force of nature: Iain Henderson is maturing into one of Europe’s Premier locksFlankers – James Haskell (England) and Chris Robshaw (England)Striking whilst the iron is hot with these two – the game is tomorrow, remember – who are in the form of their lives and invigorated under Jones. Haskell, who says the closest he has been to the Lions is London Zoo, was England’s best player, at seven, in the first two Test matches against Australia and Robshaw has been a revelation since copping it after the World Cup. Sam Warburton and Sean O’Brien are sure to be in the frame in a year’s time but these two will do for now.Number 8 – Billy Vunipola (England)The fight for the No.8 shirt in New Zealand next year between Vunipola and the ultra-consistent Taulupe Faletau will be one of the match-ups of the tour but Big Billy gets first dibs here after an astonishing season. Jones made him a vice-captain, told him he was an 80-minute player and got him fit enough to be one. Left a trail of destruction from Edinburgh to Sydney.Power play: Billy Vunipola’s ballast from the off could see him nudge Taulupe FaletauReplacements benchJamie George (England), Jack McGrath (Ireland), WP Nel (Scotland), Courtney Lawes (England), Alun Wyn Jones (Wales),  CJ Stander (Ireland), Rhys Webb (Wales), Elliot Daly (England) With the summer tours done and dusted thoughts turn to next year’s adventure to New Zealand with the British & Irish Lions. But what would the Lions team look like if they were playing the world champions in their own backyard tomorrow? The last time the tourists won a Test in New Zealand, in Wellington in 1993, the starting line-up contained 11 Englishmen and if they played tomorrow it would probably have a similar number. Players who were involved on tours but got injured have found a miracle cure and are eligible but if you missed a tour you are struggling to get in. As it is a one-off game, Eddie Jones can find the time to coach the team. It will probably look a lot different next summer but, with our tin hat at the ready, here goes…Full-back – Stuart Hogg (Scotland)Hogg gets the nod although Liam Williams could just as easily have played here. Hogg was voted Player of the Tournament in the Six Nations and has carried that form on whilst Mike Brown was not at his best on England’s trip to Australia but improved in the final game. Alex Goode must be wondering what he has to do to get a game but expect the odds on Leigh Halfpenny being part of the conversation in 11 months.Electric: Stuart Hogg’s pace and siege-gun boot would be invaluable to the Lions.Wings –Liam Williams (Wales) and George North (Wales)You have to get Williams in somewhere after his barnstorming play took it to the All Blacks in New Zealand where he was Wales’ best player by a mile and probably would have got into a combined team. North played just one Test on the tour before being laid low by a hamstring injury but he is a class act and feared by the Kiwis.Man in form: Liam Williams was the standout success for Wales in New ZealandCentres – Jonathan Joseph (England) and Owen Farrell (England)An honourable mention for Ireland’s Robbie Henshaw here but we are going to stick with the English combo that helped whitewash Australia. Joseph’s form went up a notch from anything he did in the spring, and his defence is strangely undervalued, whilst Farrell is approaching world-class. He kicked 23 from 26 goals in the three Tests and the Lions will need every point they can get against the world champions.Deadly: Owen Farrell is currently the best kicker in the world gameFly-half – George Ford (England)Ford went to Australia in a slump after missing his kicks, and being booed, against Wales and being part of an under-achieving Bath team in the English season. Three weeks later he is back on top of his game after being thrown on after half an hour in Brisbane and his tactical kicking and running of the back line was a huge part of England’s series win. Johnny Sexton missed Ireland’s trip to South Africa but will return to challenge.Scrum-half – Conor Murray (Ireland)Ben Youngs had his three best England games for a while down under and is still struggling to get in the match-day 23. Murray scored the decisive try in Ireland’s first Test win and was a constant thorn in South Africa’s flesh whilst Wales’ Rhys Webb is unlucky to only be on the bench.Experience: Conor Murray provides maturity and showed up well against the BoksProps – Mako Vunipola (England) and Dan Cole (England)Vunipola has improved his scrummaging, is still good round the park and is in the form of his life so he edges in front of Jack McGrath. Leicester’s Cole looked cooked as an international player in the World Cup but has come again and cut out the silly penalties. Eddie Jones name-checked him as one of the players who had improved most on England’s tour – not a bad trick at 29.last_img read more

Friday Funnies – Yet another Ball in the Jersey Trick

first_imgFriday Oct 30, 2009 Friday Funnies – Yet another Ball in the Jersey Trick Once again, the good old ball in the jersey trick has failed to work. We’ve seen it tried a few times, and shown them all here on the site, but this time, it even resulted in the player at hand being penalised. Dragons prop Hugh Gustafson somehow got himself tangled when making a run against the Scarlets last weekend. As he was tackled, his jersey got pulled over his head, trapping the ball in it. He went to ground, didn’t release, and got penalised for it by the ref. Pretty harsh considering the ball was actually stuck inside his jersey, but rules are rules, and despite protestation by Gustafson, possession was conceded. To make things even more comical, he struggled to then get the ball out his jersey when trying to give it to the Scarlets player, and had to walk back to his team mates with his belly hanging out. Check out our related links for similar incidents, and have a great weekend watching the Currie Cup final, the Air NZ Cup semis, the final Test of the Bledisloe Cup, as well as Guinness Premiership, Top 14, and Magners League action.

Héroes de Honduras: Margarita Murillo, ¡presente!

first_imgMargarita MurilloLos niños y jóvenes de Honduras un día veran a este período de la historia con gran lamento. La política imperialista de EE.UU. ha resultado no solo en una migración forzada masiva, sino también en décadas de brutal inestabilidad y agitación en su querida patria.De hecho, el fotoperiodista Tomás Ayuso señala que los jóvenes de Honduras han acuñado una frase de su limitada esperanza: “el derecho a envejecer”, ya que la muerte y la incertidumbre se han convertido en las principales opciones para la gran mayoría de los jóvenes. (NPR, 19 de agosto)Pero estas condiciones también han dado lugar a queridos héroes.Una de ellas es Margarita Murillo, una líder campesina revolucionaria que fue asesinada por escuadrones de la muerte el 27 de agosto de 2014.Cuatro años después de la muerte de Margarita, sus hijos y el movimiento de resistencia hondureño en la ciudad de Nueva York conmemoraron su vida el 25 de agosto con filmaciones, discursos, comida y música en el Centro de Acción Internacional.Debajo de la pancarta, “¡Seguimos exigiendo justicia! ¡Margarita vive!”, contaron la historia de esta líder por sus tres hijos, que ahora residen en Nueva York, y por otros.Una vida heroicaMargarita tenía 54 años cuando la encontraron acribillada. Tres hombres con pasamontañas, que estaban conectados con escuadrones de la muerte de derecha, la mataron mientras trabajaba en los campos en su pueblo El Planón en el norte de Honduras.Montserrat, una de las hijas de Margarita, le dijo a TeleSur en el 2017: “Fue el momento más difícil de mi vida. Fue el momento en que mi madre se convirtió en mártir de la resistencia hondureña”.Los hijos de Margarita han solicitado asilo político en los EE.UU. Y planean continuar su trabajo. Dos de sus hijos ya han logrado asilo.Su familia y el movimiento describen la vida de Margarita como una vida llena de anhelo de justicia. Se hizo activista a una edad temprana y entendió, basada en la pobreza de su propia familia, la necesidad no solo de la lucha sino de la liberación total. Margarita relató en una entrevista de radio que su familia había sido tan pobre que a veces se veían obligadas a comer hierba para sobrevivir.Margarita se vio profundamente influenciada por la creciente ola de resistencia revolucionaria en América Central. Durante su vida, viajó a El Salvador y a Nicaragua para ayudar al movimiento en esos países: una verdadera internacionalista.A los 13 años, se unió a la Unión Nacional de Campesinos. A los 15 años, participó en la Marcha del Hambre, que se ha convertido en una marcha anual en Honduras, donde la falta de comida es constante.Pero Margarita no solo anhelaba el derecho a la alimentación. Ella luchó para exigir que la tierra se le diera a quienes la trabajaban. Participó en ocupaciones de tierras y sobrevivió solo porque escapó cuando muchos de sus camaradas fueron asesinados.Margarita experimentó la represión a una edad muy temprana. A los 16 años, fue violada, torturada y golpeada. Sin embargo, nada detuvo su anhelo de justicia. A medida que crecía, se convirtió en una miembro destacada del FNRP (Frente Nacional de Resistencia Popular) de Honduras. Ayudó a establecer la Federación de Mujeres Campesinas y el Centro Nacional de Trabajadores de Campo, así como el Foro del Valle de Sula.Cuando la presidencia progresiva de Manuel Zelaya fue anulada en el 2009 por un golpe de estado orquestado por los Estados Unidos, Margarita luchó aún más. Ella no quería simplemente una elección justa, ella quería que el país se liberara totalmente de las corporaciones multinacionales.A pesar de que sus dos hijos fueron secuestrados y golpeados, Margarita siguió luchando. Samuel, uno de esos hijos, reside en Nueva York y ha obtenido asilo. El Primero de Mayo en Nueva York, Samuel y su familia marcharon con fotos de Margarita.Montserrat, a pesar de estar retenida en la frontera junto con su hija bebé en las “hieleras”, el centro de detención super frias, sigue siendo optimista. Ella, Samuel y su hija Kenia, hijos de Margarita, continúan inspirando a todos los que conocen. Ellos luchan igual que su madre.Montserrat dice siempre: “Mi madre era una luchadora. Renunció a su vida por el movimiento de resistencia.”Al igual que Berta Isabel Cáceres Flores (Lenca) de Honduras, quien también fue asesinada por los escuadrones de la muerte, Margarita seguirá viviendo. Viven en las luchas de sus hijos y en todos los jóvenes que luchan hasta la victoria de su patria.Margarita Murillo, !Presente!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Crop Tour Rolls Toward Conclusion

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Aug 24, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE Home CROPS Crop Tour Rolls Toward Conclusion Crop Tour Rolls Toward ConclusionThe Midwest Crop Tour has run its course, and all that remains is totaling up the numbers and coming up with an estimated yield and production number. On Thursday, Ty Higgins, traveling the tour for Hoosier Ag Today reported that corn yields in Minnesota were excellent, “Fields were over 200 bpa at almost every stop.” Minnesota farmers on the tour said the early planted corn was doing the best. Like much of Indiana, Minnesota corn was planted at two different times due to weather. The later corn is not doing as well. Higgins reports the soybeans are not looking good. He reported to HAT that the soybeans were also behind in development and that an early frost could have major consequences.This year the tour may have left farmers and industry folks alike with more questions than answers as far as what crop projections are this year. Aaron Benoit is a Risk Management Consultant with Blue Reef Agri-Marketing, “I am more confused than when I got here. The main reason is the variability of the crop. We saw good yields in Minnesota, but just average yields in Iowa.” The final numbers for Iowa and Minnesota came in at 179.79 bushels and 191.54 bushels, respectively. Soybean pods in a 3 x 3 foot square came to 1092.29 pods for Iowa and 1019.96 for Minnesota.Scouts on the western leg drive through far northern Iowa and Minnesota meeting the eastern leg in Rochester. The final figures from the tour will be released on Friday.Crop Tour coverage on Hoosier Ag Today sponsored by Seed consultants Previous articleCrouch Visits Indiana Field DaysNext articleWill Cool Weather Mean Extended Growing Season?

Cameraman dies of injuries sustained during Rio de Janeiro protest

He underwent a four-hour operation before dying of his injuries today.“We appeal yet again, and with more energy than ever, to both the security forces and protesters to respect the work of journalists covering street demonstrations,” said Reporters Without Borders head of research Lucie Morillon. “We ask the competent authorities to do everything in their power to ensure that those responsible for Andrade’s death are identified and punished, in order to end the frequent impunity in cases of attacks against journalists covering demonstrations.”Morillon added: “The authorities must take firm measures that are commensurate with this tragedy, coming as it has shortly before the Football World Cup, which will bring many journalists to Brazil to cover both the football and the country’s social developments.”Reporters Without Borders deplores the frequency of physical attacks on media personnel in Brazil. Since last June, at least 114 journalists have been the victims of violence – not all of it targeted.Three journalists have been beaten by demonstrators or police since the start of 2014.

JPL, Caltech Team Up to Tackle Big-Data Projects

first_img Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Photo courtesy NASA’s JPLJet Propulsion Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology are now actively collaborating on a project to provide scientists and engineers adequate tools that could help them handle, explore and analyze big data.JPL’s Center for Data Science and Technology (CDST) and Caltech’s Center for Data-Driven Discovery (CD³) have decided to create the Joint Initiative on Data Science and Technology, and recently launched the endeavor at a kickoff event at Caltech’s Cahill Center for Astronomy and Physics.“Our joint center is somewhat like an observatory. The software and other expertise brought by Caltech and JPL scientists in the initiative are the instruments that will allow others to make discoveries,” said George Djorgovski, professor of astronomy and director of CD3.Individually, each center strives to provide the intellectual infrastructure, including expertise and advanced computational tools, to help researchers and companies from around the world analyze and interpret the massive amounts of information they now collect using computer technologies, in order to make data-driven discoveries more efficient and timely.“We’ve found a lot of synergy across disciplines and an opportunity to apply emerging capabilities in data science to more effectively capture, process, manage, integrate and analyze data,” said Daniel Crichton, manager of JPL’s CDST. “JPL’s work in building observational systems can be applied to several disciplines from planetary science and Earth science to biological research. It’s an opportunity for us to not only impact NASA, but also impact other agencies and research enterprises to advance understanding from the vast amount of highly distributed, massive data that is collected from scientific exploration.”JPL, for example, has been working with the National Cancer Institute for the past several years to develop a knowledge environment to support cancer biomarker research. “This collaboration exemplifies the opportunities to leverage data and computational science tools from space science for cancer research and vice versa,” Crichton said.The Caltech center is also interested in taking data science tools and techniques developed for one field and applying them to another. The CD3 recently collaborated on one such project with Ralph Adolphs, Bren Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and professor of biology at Caltech. They used tools based on machine learning that were originally developed to analyze data from astronomical sky surveys to process neurobiological data from a study of autism.“We’re getting some promising results,” said Djorgovski. “We think this kind of work will help researchers not only publish important papers but also create tools to be used across disciplines. They will be able to say, ‘We’ve got these powerful new tools for knowledge discovery in large and complex data sets. With a combination of big data and novel methodologies, we can do things that we never could before.’”Both the CD3 and the CDST began operations last fall. The Joint Initiative already has a few projects under way in the areas of Earth science, cancer research, health care informatics, and data visualization. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.

Hear 911 call Dallas cop made after she fatally shot man in his apartment

first_imgamphotora/iStock(DALLAS) — “I thought it was my apartment.”Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger repeated those words over a dozen times to a 911 dispatcher after she shot 26-year-old Botham Jean inside his own apartment on Sept. 6. They lived on different floors in the same apartment complex, south of downtown Dallas. Guyger, 30, was still wearing her police uniform when she arrived home that night from working a full shift and apparently mistook Jean’s apartment for her own. She shot him when she opened the ajar door of the unit and saw a “large silhouette” in the nearly dark apartment, believing it was a burglar, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.That’s when Guyger, who was still in uniform, called 911 for help and provided first aid, according to the warrant.ABC Dallas affiliate WFAA-TV obtained a copy of the five-minute 911 call, which has not been officially released.The dispatcher answers, “Dallas 911, this is Carla. What is your emergency?”Guyger, who sounds distressed and out of breath throughout the call, says, “I’m an off-duty officer. I thought I was in my apartment and I shot a guy thinking he was, thinking it was my apartment.”“You shot someone?” the dispatcher asks.“Yes. I thought it was my apartment,” Guyger responds. “Oh my god. I’m sorry.”The dispatcher tells Guyger that help is on the way.“I know but I’m — I’m going to lose my job. I thought it was my apartment,” Guyger says.Guyger can be heard talking to Jean while she waits for first responders to arrive. “Hey bud. Hey bud. Come on,” she says.She tells the dispatcher to “hurry please.”“I thought it was my apartment,” Guyger repeats over and over. “I could have sworn I parked on the third floor.”“Hey, bud,” she’s heard saying to Jean again. “Hey, bud, they’re coming. They’re coming. I’m sorry, man.”The dispatcher confirms with Guyger that she’s an officer with the Dallas Police Department.“Yes,” Guyger says. “Oh my god. I’m done. I didn’t mean to. I didn’t mean to. I didn’t mean to. I’m so sorry. Hey, bud.”The dispatcher assures Guyger that first responders are almost there.“Stay with me, bud,” Guyger is heard telling Jean. “I thought it was my apartment. I thought it was my apartment.”First responders arrive on scene and Guyger is heard telling them she’s an off-duty officer. The call ends seconds later.Jean was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where he died.Jean grew up on the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia, where some of his family still lives. At the time of his death, he was working for PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services firm with an office in Dallas, according to the company.“The sound of gunshots did not have the resonance to be heard on our small island, but their impact was of nuclear proportions,” Jean’s uncle, Ignatius Jean, told mourners at his funeral. “A nuke had been unleashed on our family by someone charged to protect and serve.”Guyger turned herself in and was charged with manslaughter. She was released after posting bond.A Dallas County grand jury indicted Guyger on a murder charge on Nov. 30, after deliberations and days of testimony from witnesses and Jean’s family.Guyger was fired from the Dallas Police Department weeks after the shooting.Guyger’s attorney, Robert Rogers, described the shooting as “a tragic mistake” and said his client “is completely devastated by what happened.” But when the case is presented in “a fair forum,” Rogers said, “the law and evidence” will prove she “is innocent.”“I am not surprised that a grand jury came out with an indictment,” Rogers said in a Nov. 30 statement. “I believe emotion was injected into this that might have led the grand jury astray from just focusing on the law and the evidence.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
