Crusaders bolstered by All Blacks trio

first_imgChiefs v CrusadersFriday 6 July at Waikato Stadium, HamiltonKick:off – 08:35 BST Back in red: Carter shakes of a hamstring strain in time to face the table-toppersWITH THEIR play-off chances hanging by a thread, Coach Todd Blackadder will be happy with the return of Kieran Read (concussion), Dan Carter (hamstring) and Israel Dagg (ankle) who start against the Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday.After suffering a knock to the head during the All Blacks 3-0 whitewash over Ireland, Kieran Read starts at number 8, moving captain Richie McCaw to his favoured openside spot. Dan Carter slots in at 10, shifting Tom Taylor to the bench. While Sean Maitland who played at fullback last week, hands over the 15 shirt to Israel Dagg.With a shock defeat to the Hurricanes 23-22 last week, the seven-time champions are in danger of failing to secure a play-off spot, for the first time since 2001.The only other change to last week’s team is a rotation of the props, with Ben and Owen Franks taking the starting spots and Wyatt Crockett providing cover from the bench.

Typical of the man, he bounced back and became a European champion for the third time when beating Leinster in Newcastle.Farrell was controlled and tactically supreme that day. His constant involvement and moment of pure class in giving the scoring pass to Sean Maitland for Sarries’ opening try was utterly critical to the outcome.“Owen makes decisions and executes unbelievably well,” says Danny Cipriani. “He’s a diligent athlete. The way he looks at things – and the way he drives things – is meticulous.”As he leads England into the 2019 Rugby World Cup, he must address his tendency to go shoulder-first into tackles because his country will not go far without him.In an eventful year on the pitch, he became a dad off it. If Tommy fancies a career in rugby, he won’t be lacking in advice from his father and grandfather!5 Liam Williams No Mistakes: Liam Williams has become one of the finest backs in the world (Getty Images)Age 28 (9.4.91) Position Back threeThe world’s best player in the view of Giselle Mather, who cites his try-saving tackle-jackal on Garry Ringrose in the Heineken Cup final as Exhibit A. “He’s a modern-day JPR Williams, a cult hero,” Sam Warburton says of the fearless, feisty full-back.4 Brodie RetallickUnlike Any Other: Retallick’s skills are unmatched in the lock position (Getty Images)Age 28 (31.5.91) Position Lock The 100 Best Players In The World: 70-61 Expand Welsh talisman Alun Wyn Jones takes the top… The 100 Best Players In The World: 100-91 Expand Expand The 100 Best Players In The World: 3 Mako Vunipola The 100 Best Players In The World: 60-51 Expand Cult Hero: Williams has become one of the best in the world (Getty Images) Our bronze medallist in the list of the… Expand Our next section of the 100 best players… Take a look at who has made it into the top ten of our 100 Best Players In The World list The 100 Best Players In The World: 30-21 The 100 Best Rugby Players In The World: 10-410 Tadhg Furlong Infinite Respect: Furlong is feared by all who face him (Getty Images)Age 26 (14.11.92) Position PropThe legend goes that during his time with Ireland U20 this normally restrained tighthead suggested that, so often was his defence highlighted in analysis, he should be called ‘Jukebox’ – because the hits keep coming. Now one of the most respected forwards on the planet, Furlong is feared in the tight and revered for deft handling in the loose.9 Viliame MataBig unit: The man mountain carries like no other (Getty Images)Age 27 (22.10.91) Position No 8John Barclay’s seen a lot in his time but he’s been blown away by his Edinburgh team-mate and master offloader: “I don’t know any player who carries the ball as well as him in traffic. I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him yet, that’s the scary thing.”8 Finn RussellPulses Racing: He can set the field on fire with his vision and creativity (Getty Images)Age 26 (23 September 1992) Position Fly-halfHe’s one of the top ten players in the world because every time he gets the ball you know he can do serious damage. He’s such a threat because his skill-set is ridiculous. His running threat is immense and defences can’t take their eyes off him for a second. He can chip, grubber and punt the ball to space, and his distribution off both hands has ripped world-class defences apart. He also makes good calls on intercepts and when he’s the other side of the defensive line, if he doesn’t finish the try he doesn’t die with the ball and helps set up another wave.7 Ben Smith Relied Upon: Smith plays a key role in the All Black back-line (Getty Images)Age 33 (1.6.86) Position Back threeOn the very rare occasions he makes a mistake, you can feel the rugby world gasp. He turns similes on their head: fixed structures should be described as being as steady as Smith.A half-back for a chunk of his teens, it wasn’t until Otago’s NPC coaches put ‘Bender’ at 15 that things clicked. With a whole field in front of him, his computer-like brain started deciphering things. It would still take a few years before the whole country saw how Smith’s ball-gathering, line-picking, field-covering work was perfect for the All Blacks. But he got there.He is not the biggest, the brashest or the most physical of characters – The Alternative Commentary Collective affectionately named him ‘Ben from accounts’. But it is for his resilience and his brilliantly efficient play that he is described as one of the great 15s. The 100 Best Players In The World: 70-61 The 100 Best Players In The World: 100-91 Expand Expand No lock in world rugby has Retallick’s range of skills. Who else could sell an audacious dummy from 40m out and canter in as he did against the Wallabies last August? It was voted Try of the Year. A beast in contact and set-piece – look how he destroyed England’s lineout last autumn – his offloading and handling in the wide channels sets him apart.

Policy Forum Encourages Farmer Involvement and Collaboration

first_img By Andy Eubank – Dec 3, 2014 Policy Forum Encourages Farmer Involvement and Collaboration Home Indiana Agriculture News Policy Forum Encourages Farmer Involvement and Collaboration SHARE Facebook Twitter Corn-Soy policy discussedThe Indiana corn and soybean organizations hosted a joint policy forum at the Glass Barn Tuesday, and the event brought farmers from all over the state and a panel of speakers that included the CEO’s of the national corn and soybean organizations and the two ag committee chairs of Indiana state government. Northern Indiana farmer and Indiana Soybean Alliance director Jerry Osterholt said all the panelists had a common message to farmers.“Definitely to become more involved with the legislative process by finding out who your representative is, contacting them, and having a personal relationship with them so when they have a question about ag, they know who to go to. You!”National Corn Growers Asscociation CEO Chris Novak just started that role after leading the National Pork Board. Prior to that he headed up the Indiana corn and soy groups, leading them to combine separate offices and staff. They then collaborated with Indiana pork and beef in bringing all four under one roof. Novak spoke about the importance of collaboration, and he hopes to bring the kind of success Indiana has enjoyed to future talks between NCGA and livestock groups. That will be a challenge.“The Corn Board is committed to working with the livestock industry,” he said. “The hog guys, the cattle guys, they’re a pretty darned independent bunch, and from their standpoint, not having dealt with government programs, not really having a livestock insurance type program in place for the most part, they don’t want government on their farm. I don’t know that you’ll ever see livestock farmers who will reach out and embrace and love the RFS. I don’t know that that’s what we should expect.”Novak said NCGA is meeting with the pork board later this month to discuss a range of issues including sustainability.“Livestock is looking at us because about two-thirds of their carbon footprint assessment is from feed, and so they want to see us do some things to reduce corn’s carbon footprint. Those are places where we can start.”He said those discussions won’t end any debates, but it’s important to work together in areas where they have much in common.

Lake Ave., the simple idea behind Rounds (great taste and value at lower prices) shows much promise, but what do customers have to say about it?We asked Leila Romero. The first time she tasted Rounds, Romero couldn’t stop craving it.“Once we tried it, we really liked it and we had the craving for it two days later and we all went back to the Pasadena location,” Romero said.When asked what it was that made her come back for more, Romero told us, “I don’t know.

I like everything about this one. Like the cheese, this one, it had melted, so it was all over the burger.”Romero added that “the bun was good too.

News bites from around the world

first_imgPrint WhatsApp Email Linkedin Don’t drink the liquid nitrogen…!A BRITISH teenager has had her stomach surgically removed to save her life after drinking a cocktail made with liquid nitrogen. According to The Guardian, Gaby Scanlon was celebrating her 18th birthday at Oscar’s Wine Bar in Lancaster when she allegedly drank what’s called a Pornstar Martini.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up According to a cache of Oscar’s Facebook page (the page has since been pulled), the drink, which is no longer available, consists of “passion fruit, Cartel (vanilla vodka) and pineapple juice, with the bonus of a shot of Moet and Chanson!! It’s AMAZING! All for £8:95 and also liquid nitrogen, to create a smoky effect”. The teen somehow managed to ingest some of the liquid nitrogen which caused a perforation in her stomach lining. She was immediately hospitalised and is now recovering from surgery. Bugs, Noma and school lunchesTHE world’s best chef from the world’s best restaurant, René Redzepi, brought samples of foraged food to an interview in New York from his restaurant for the audience: rose hips, fermented and dried mushrooms, paste of wood ants, and a fish sauce-like brew made from “piles and piles of corpses of crickets.”Eater.com reported that, “Unsurprisingly, the conversation largely covered Redzepi’s famed foraging and use of local Danish insects, but he also talked about a new book he’s working on.” No it’s not about the wonderful world of Michelin dishes – it’s about making lunches for your kids.Redzepi did share some things. Here are just a few, eater.com has the full interview.On the evolution of Noma: “Within a few years, it stopped making sense, this 85-hour work week where you’re constantly cooking somebody else’s ideas or ways of looking at food. And that’s when ‘Time and Place’ started and that became the core of everything we do now.”On bugs: “I know it’s taboo to eat bugs in the Western world, but why not, when it adds letters to your vocabulary? … You go to Southeast Asia and this is a common thing. You read about it from all over the world, that people are eating bugs. Of course, we eat things from bugs as well. Most of it we don’t know – a worm, a mushroom. If you like mushrooms, you’ve eaten so many worms you cannot imagine. But also we eat honey, and honey is the vomit of a bee. Actually it is. So think of that next time you pour it into your tea, that it’s bug vomit basically.”On making lunches for his one- and four-year-old daughters: “It’s the most nerve-wracking thing there is in the entire world because you never know what happens. The thing they enjoyed last week, they might look and say, ‘I don’t want that, I hate it,’ the following week. And the most important thing for you is that your children have a healthy and happy relationship with flavours and with food. So this little moment I have every morning, where I’m planning the lunch box, is truly one of the most nerve wracking moments I have through the whole day.” NewsNews bites from around the worldBy admin – October 15, 2012 500 center_img Advertisement Twitter Facebook Previous articleWorld Food Day at Thomond ParkNext articleNine arrested in connection with dissident activity adminlast_img read more

Driver avoids tragedy as plank from subway platform spears windshield

first_imgWABC-TV(NEW YORK) — An Uber driver in Queens was the luckiest guy in New York City on Thursday.Mahboob Lodhi, who said he had just gotten off a shift working for the car-share company, was cruising through Woodside in the city’s largest borough when a large plank fell from elevated subway tracks above him and speared right through his windshield.Lodhi missed disaster by a foot or two.“Boom. I’m just shocked,” Lodhi told New York ABC station WABC-TV about his thoughts in the moment. “I’m nervous and then after a couple minutes, nothing.”No one was injured in the vehicle or on the street, though the wooden plank did glance off Lodhi’s arm and glass sprayed onto him.Photos from after the incident show the piece of wood fully punctured the windshield and reached all the way to the passenger seat.Several other planks also fell to the street.“A track from the 7 train just crashed down upon a driving car around 65th Street in Woodside, piercing through the windshield,” New York City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer tweeted. “These photos are horrifying!”Van Bramer also called for an investigation and said “someone could have been killed.”The Metropolitan Transit Authority, which operates New York City’s subways, is facing billions of dollars in debt. The agency’s total outstanding debt as of Jan. 14 was slightly over $40 billion.About Thursday’s incident, the MTA said in a statement to WABC, “We take this incident extremely seriously, are conducting a full investigation into what happened, have personnel ensuring the rest of the area is safe, and are relieved that no one was injured.”Workers also spent Thursday evening inspecting the elevated portion of the 7 line for any other possible similarities.
