Poll: Who should be Wales fly-half for the Six Nations?

first_imgMan in the frame? Who would you like to see as the pivot for Wales in the Six Nations? In November there was a chance to see Biggar and Priestland starting games, however the Scarlet was dropped and then recalled whilst Hook flitted in as cover. Perhaps others need more of a chance; Hook is your hero; Anscombe needs a taste of the big time despite a short period in Wales? TAGS: Highlight For 24 hours only we want to know who you would pick to be the Wales fly-half in the upcoming Six Nations.There are other condidates we could pick for this poll – Cardiff Blues playmaker Rhys Patchell is worth an honourable mention, despite being out with injury and some rate Bristol No 10 Matthew Morgan very highly – but with current form, league competed in and fitness status, we opted for these five choices.So who would you like to see as Wales’ first receiver against England on Friday 6 February at the Millennium Stadium? The options are Dan Biggar of the Ospreys, Rhys Priestland of the Scarlets, James Hook of Gloucester, Owen Williams of Leicester Tigers or Gareth Anscombe of Cardiff Blues.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Whatever your view, here’s the chance for you to hang your hat on one of the stand-offs.

Drug dealer ordered Limerick farm fires over horse deaths

first_imgFacebook Previous articleLimerick Repair Directory launched onlineNext articlecompetition winner Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Limerick farm fires were seen as an act of revenge over the loss of a horses in vigilante styled attackA DRUG addict who owed his dealer money was pressurised to carry out a number of arson attacks in County Limerick over the loss of sulky race horses.John Ryan (24) of Carriage Beg, Doon started fires at three farms in county Limerick causing damage estimated at more than €80,000.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The fires were in response to a vigilante-style attack in September 2015 when three horses were killed.Limerick Circuit Court heard that a fire at an East Limerick farm last year, sparked the revenge attacks carried out by John Ryan, who owed a major drug dealer a considerable sum of money.On September 28, 2015, a fire was started deliberately at a farm in Doon where a shed with hay and two bulloks were destroyed. €15,000 worth of damage was caused.A week later, on October 5, Ryan started another at a farm also near Doon causing €43,000 in damage. He carried out a third attack near Oola the next day which caused over €22,000 in damage.After his arrest he told Gardaí he was annoyed because one of his sulky horses died in a fire. He had read a claim in a Sunday newspaper that vigilantes in Doon were responsible for the fire in which the horses perished.He told a clinical psychologist that the arson attacks were sheer acts of stupidity and he carried them out on the orders of a man he owed €16,000 in drugs debts. He said he was also in fear of the drug dealer as he had beaten him up in the past.Judge Tom O’Donnell said that the premeditated attack caused “wanton destruction” which left people considerably out of pocket.He jailed John Ryan for six years but suspended the last 18 months and backdated the jail term to October 2015 when he was taken into custody.

Cornell celebrates 50th anniversary of moon landing

first_img The event kicks off with a lecture by visiting scientist Peter Thomas entitled “Apollo 11 Plus 50: Context, Personal Recollections and Why It Succeeded.” Following Thomas, Michael Mellon, principal research scientist in Cornell’s astronomy department, will give a talk called “Exploring Mars: Past, Present and Future.”Mellon and Thomas will focus on the history of human exploration of the moon and Mars and give audience members context on the implications of further research and investigation.Cornell had a role in analyzing samples from the moon for their elemental makeup. Lewis said Cornell has a rich history of planetary science, which is a tradition that has continued today. These days, Cornell chemists and planetary scientists work on a broad range of things concerning the future of space exploration, Lewis said. Some areas of interest include developing technology required to explore new planets and solar systems and analyzing samples for space.Looking to the fate of space exploration, a panel consisting of three Carl Sagan Institute members will take place at 3:20 p.m. The panel will discuss the future of robotic and human space exploration in the long-term.The speakers will include Lewis, Jonathan Lunine, professor in the Physical Sciences and chair of the astronomy department, and Mason Peck, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and former NASA chief technologist.Lewis said one big goal that came out of the moon landing was the goal to get people to Mars, but that isn’t the only thing scientists are interested in.“That’s the next thing, the next obvious place to send people in our solar system,” she said. “But we have a lot of folks thinking about how we could potentially get something to light speed of light to travel to other solar systems.”Featured image: Astronaut Buzz Aldrin walks on the surface of the moon near the leg of the lunar module Eagle during the Apollo 11 mission.

(NASA) Tagged: carl sagan institute, cornell, events, nasa Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: ITHACA, N.Y. — On July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left their spacecraft and walked on the moon — the first humans to do so. Cornell University will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing July 20 with an event called “From the Moon to Mars and Beyond.” Fifty years ago, the moon landing changed what people considered humanly possible, said Nikole Lewis, assistant professor of astronomy and Sagan Institute deputy director.“It was the first time that people had set foot on a planet other than Earth, and an event like that can be nothing but historic,” she said. “It certainly inspired generations to think about going beyond the Earth and exploring worlds in our solar system, and even past that.”To commemorate the achievement, Cornell will host an afternoon of lectures and a panel starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 20, in the Call Auditorium in Kennedy Hall. The Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections in Kroch Library also has an Apollo 11 exhibit on display for the summer. One highlight is a notebook by Cornell graduate Ernest Sternglass, who conducted research on electron amplification, which helped an estimated 650 million people watch the live images of Armstrong and Aldrin taking their first steps on the moon July 20, 1969.The line at Olin Library stretches to the door in September 1969, as students, faculty and other observers – about 8,000 people over a four-day period – get a glimpse of moon dust returned by the Apollo 11 astronauts. Professors Thomas Gold, astronomy, and George Morrison, chemistry, both were among 142 scientists commissioned by NASA to receive samples.

Parents sue Royal Caribbean for negligence after 1-year-old daughter falls to her death

first_imgFILE photo – ALEXIUZ/iStock(MIAMI) — The parents of a 1-year-old girl who fell to her death from the window of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship over the summer is now suing the company for negligence.Indiana residents Alan Wiegand and Kimberly Schultz-Wiegand filed the civil lawsuit Wednesday morning, accusing Royal Caribbean of playing “a major role in the death of our child.” Their daughter, Chloe, would have turned 2 this week.“We should be celebrating with presents and a birthday cake, but instead we are talking about her death,” Schultz-Wiegand tearfully said, during a press conference announcing the legal action.ABC News has reached out to the cruise line for comment.The couple was on vacation with their 18-month-old daughter and her grandparents on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas in July. The little girl was in her grandfather’s arms, sitting on a wooden railing and looking through a wall of glass near the children’s water park area on the vessel’s 11th-floor deck. However, unbeknownst to them, the pane of glass directly in front of them was actually a window slid completely open, according to the complaint, which was filed in federal court in Miami.As Chloe leaned forward to bang on the glass believed to be there, she “slipped” from her grandfather’s arms and fell through the open pane, according to the complaint. The child plunged approximately 150 feet below onto the pier in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the ship was docked at the time.“There was not a single, adequate indication that this wall of glass panes was not actually a wall of fixed glass panes,” the complaint states, “but instead a wall of glass with glass panes that could actually slide and remain open, as windows.”Chloe’s parents are seeking unspecified damages from Royal Caribbean and are demanding a jury trial. In the lawsuit, they accuse the cruise line of failing to “provide reasonably safe children entertainment areas,” faililng “adequately mark the open windows” and failing to “install safety prevention devices on windows.”The grandfather, Salvatore Anello, has been arrested and charged with negligent homicide in connection with Chloe’s death. He was ultimately released on $80,000 bond and appeared in court in Puerto Rico for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 20.Anello is next due in court on Dec. 17.Chloe’s parents have maintained the cruise line is at fault. Family attorney Michael Winkleman told ABC News that surveillance video of the incident, which prosecutors shared with defense attorneys as discovery evidence last month, supports Anello’s assertion that he thought the window was closed.“These criminal charges are pouring salt on the open wounds of this grieving family,” Winkleman said in an October interview. “Clearly, this was a tragic accident and the family’s singular goal remains for something like this to never happen again. Had the cruise lines simply followed proper safety guidelines for windows, this accident likely would never have happened.”Chloe’s grandfather spoke briefly at Wednesday’s press conference but did not answer questions related to the incident nor the charges filed against him.“I sit here broken. We all sit here broken,” Anello told reporters. “But our family is strong and we will stay strong together.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

EMIC wave events during the four GEM QARBM challenge intervals

first_imgThis paper presents observations of EMIC waves from multiple data sources during the four GEM challenge events in 2013 selected by the GEM “Quantitative Assessment of Radiation Belt Modeling” focus group: March 17‐18 (Stormtime Enhancement), May 31‐June 2 (Stormtime Dropout), September 19‐20 (Non‐storm Enhancement), and September 23‐25 (Non‐storm Dropout). Observations include EMIC wave data from the Van Allen Probes, GOES, and THEMIS spacecraft in the near‐equatorial magnetosphere and from several arrays of ground‐based search coil magnetometers worldwide, as well as localized ring current proton precipitation data from low‐altitude POES spacecraft. Each of these data sets provides only limited spatial coverage, but their combination shows consistent occurrence patterns and reveals some events that would not be identified as significant using near‐equatorial spacecraft alone. Relativistic and ultrarelativistic electron flux observations, phase space density data, and pitch angle distributions based on data from the REPT and MagEIS instruments on the Van Allen Probes during these events show two cases during which EMIC waves are likely to have played an important role in causing major flux dropouts of ultrarelativistic electrons, particularly near L* ~ 4.0. In three other cases identifiable smaller and more short‐lived dropouts appeared, and in five other cases these waves evidently had little or no effect.last_img read more

“Better for Oxbridge students”: Oxbridge only grad employment scheme launches

first_imgDreaming Spires has recruited Student Advisors across the Oxford colleges to advertise the “exclusive” service to undergraduates, branded as being “better for employers” on JCR pages. Allegations of elitism have been made online against the company. The Dreaming Spires website states that “for many of us, we applied to Oxbridge for the love of our subject, but also because of the career boost. Dreaming Spires is now here to fast-track this.” A recent study by the Sutton Trust, entitled “Elitist Britain 2019” found that of 5000 FTSE 350 executives, 39% had been privately educated, compared with 7% of the general population, and 31% of FTSE 100 CEOs have attended Oxbridge. Dreaming Spires, founded by a recent Oxford graduate, claims to “streamline the job and internship application process for Oxbridge students”, and to be “better for Oxbridge students”. The new service, launched this week, also claims that students from Oxford and Cambridge can upload their CVs and be invited directly to interview, cutting out the application process and the “noise” from applicants at other universities. A start-up careers service claims to fast-track applications from Oxbridge students to internships in FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies.center_img Dreaming Spires have been contacted for comment.
