Rugby Championship games in London could become a regular thing

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS SANZAAR chief executive Andy Marinos explains why Europe could stage Rugby Championship games more often Trick shot: Adam Ashley-Cooper scores one of his three tries against Argentina at RWC 2015. Photo: Getty Images The Rugby Championship is coming to London for the first time on Saturday 8 October with defending champions Australia taking on Argentina at Twickenham in a repeat of one of last year’s World Cup semi-finals.That match could become the first of many, with SANZAAR chief executive Andy Marinos keen to stage more Rugby Championship fixtures in Europe – and London in particular. It’s a way to expose the tournament to a wider audience.“We saw how positive the World Cup was in the UK and we feel our game is about taking it to as many supporters as possible,” says Marinos. “It’s a good opportunity for extra exposure and bringing a meaningful Rugby Championship game to London is something that will continue to promote rugby at a moment when its popularity is continuing to grow.“The style of play in the Rugby Championship is a very exportable commodity to further increase the attractiveness of the sport. People want to see a free-flowing style and the game is moving in that direction.”Regular-season NFL and NBA games are now staged in London and Marinos sees the UK capital as a key market for international sporting showpieces.“It’s testament to what a big sporting arena London is,” he says. “While the World Cup was on last year, the NFL were kicking off a game (between Jacksonville and Buffalo) in semi-final week. London is the destination for big sporting events and it’s a unique opportunity to show what a lot of skill and talent there is in rugby. “Australia and New Zealand have already taken international rugby abroad to the USA and to Hong Kong and people will continue to look at new markets, but Europe and the UK has such a strong rugby heritage and we at SANZAAR would like to continue that approach.”Adam Ashley-Cooper’s hat-trick of tries sealed a 29-15 win for Australia over Argentina at RWC 2015 last October and support for both sides should be strong again this year.Colourful crowd: Australia and Argentina fans enjoy the semi-final at Twickenham. Photo: Getty ImagesAs Marinos says: “Argentina have been making one of the fastest rises in international rugby and with many of their players in Europe there’s always going to be a strong affiliation for them.“Australia, New Zealand, South Africa all have huge ex-pat communities in the UK so these games will be attractive to them.”Tickets to Argentina v Australia at Twickenham are available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk from £45 for adults, £25 for children (U16) and a family package (2 adults & 2 children) for £115.

CUNY union, supporters: No contract NO PEACE!

first_imgMore than 1,000 union members and their supporters gathered in front of the Upper East Side apartment of City University Chancellor James Milliken at 8 a.m. on Oct. 1. There, they protested Milliken’s refusal to make an economic offer to the Professional Staff Congress, which represents City University of New York faculty and staff.PSC members have been working without a new contract since 2010, although the old one remains in force under New York state law.PSC President Barbara Bowen said that the failure to obtain economic justice for CUNY faculty and staff meant that their students — overwhelmingly Black and Latino/a, the daughters and sons of the poor and workers and from every immigrant community in New York City — did not get the education that they need and deserve.More than 700 members of the PSC signed in, and there were delegations from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees District Council 37, which represents CUNY clerical and administrative staff; the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; the Laborers union; the Union of Clerical, Administrative and Technical Staff at New York University; the Council of School Administrators; the United Federation of Teachers; the Transport Workers Union; the Hotel and Trades Council, DC 371 (social workers), the Utility Workers Union of America (Local 1-2 Con Ed); and the National Writers Union (UAW 1921).

No. 6 TCU is no longer an underdog

first_imgMen’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Linkedin Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major. He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ printWhen football season started, expectations for the Horned Frogs were limited at best. But going into Manhattan, Kansas to face the Wildcats Saturday, TCU is ranked No. 6 and is the only undefeated team left in the Big 12. The Frogs are expecting a physical game Saturday. Known for running the ball, Kansas State doesn’t play the up tempo, no-huddle spread offense that is common in the Big 12. “They’re a tough-nosed team,” said TCU quarterback Kenny Hill. “They have a lot of walk-on kids from that area who were overlooked and they come in with a chip on their shoulder ready to go, so they play really hard and don’t ever stop.”But after a losing season and a collapse in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl against Georgia last year, TCU has had a lot to prove this season, too. “I already knew we were going to be better when we walked off the field against Georgia in the bowl game because their coach [Kirby Smart] said I’m glad I played you now,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “We gave them a fight, and they have some good players.”Patterson and the Frogs spent the offseason fine-tuning both sides of the ball. Experience has bolstered the defense, as eight of TCU’s eleven starters are upperclassmen.“It’s no secret, you’re more physical when you’re older,” Patterson said.The defense has held three of the top offenses in the country — SMU, Oklahoma State and West Virginia —  forcing eight turnovers, allowing five touchdowns in 11 red-zone trips and 91 points. The Frogs have 11 takeaways so far this season, compared with 16 for all of last season.They’re leading the conference in sacks with 13, which have come from seven different players. Junior defensive end Ben Banogu, a transfer from Louisiana Monroe, has four of those sacks. “He’s had a great impact: great pass rusher, great physicality coming off and setting the edge,” TCU defensive tackle Chris Bradley said. “He does his job, he knows the defense well, we’re able to flow together as one, so it’s been amazing to watch.”Banogu is on the Watch List for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which goes to the best defensive player. He has team-high totals of seven tackles for loss. He also has two forced fumbles, which pace the Frogs.Facing the defense in practice has sharpened TCU’s offensive play too.“The defense makes it tough on us and they really make it hard on us, which makes us better,” Hill said.The offense, the nation’s best on third-down, scored 131 points, rushing for 662 yards and nine touchdowns in the last three games. Hill is 15-of-23 for 194 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions on third down. His overall completion percentage of 69 percent ranks 10th in the nation. He’s on pace to surpass Casey Pachall’s school record of 66.5 percent. Hill credits a couple factors in TCU’s offensive uptick: Facing Patterson’s stout defense that allows the fewest points per game, 19.6 in the Big 12, and the running back rotation that gives Hill plenty of options. The trio of Darius Anderson, Kyle Hicks and Sewo Oloniliua have teamed up to power the Big 12’s top running attack.

Immediately after the offensive, the two journalists, aged between 28 and 32, were reported to have returned to the scene to collect their equipment. A Syrian army vehicle opened fire on them, killing both.We deplore this deliberate double murder. One of the pair, Walid Blidi, was a British national of Algerian origin. The nationality of his colleague, Nassim Terreri, has yet to be established. A third journalist reported to have been wounded in the attack was taken to hospital in Turkish border town of d’Antakya. The journalists planned to make a documentary in the village of Idleb, a hotbed of the protest movement that has been the target of a violent crackdown by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.In view of the growing number of freelance journalists who go to theatres of war, Reporters Without Borders notes it is sometimes very difficult to ascertain the status and identities of such people when they get into difficulties. Therefore, we urge freelance journalists to share their travel plans with someone trustworthy who would be able to contact journalists’ organizations or the authorities. The tragedy occurred a day after the murder of the citizen journalist Jawan Mohammed Qatana on 25 March in Derbassiyeh, north of the eastern city of Al-Hassakeh Considering the troubles in Syria and the attitude of its authorities, the press freedom organization calls on journalists additionally to prepare their trip carefully, assess the risks and exercise caution.Reporters Without Borders reminds them that specialized medical and repatriation insurance is available, including schemes developed by this organization with the insurance company April International Canada.The organization urges news organizations that use the services of freelance journalists to meet the cost of their insurance, or to take account of it in their payment rates. The profession as a whole must be more careful about the safety of journalists, who are carrying out an essential job of reporting the news from the world’s hot spots.

The Antarctic ozone hole during 2013

first_imgWe review the 2013 Antarctic ozone hole, making use of various ground-based, in-situ and remotely-sensed ozone measurements, ground-based measurements of ultraviolet radiation and meteorological reanalyses. Based on analysis of 34 years of satellite records spanning 1979-2013 (which excludes 1995), we find that in terms of maximum area, minimum ozone level and total ozone deficit, the ozone hole in 2013 was typical of other years of moderate ozone loss. The estimated integrated ozone mass effectively depleted within the ozone hole of 2013 was approximately 1037 Mt, which was the 17th largest deficit on record and 41% of the peak deficit observed in 2006. Anomalously cold winter temper-atures in the lower stratosphere over Antarctica and concurrent strong and stable vortex conditions favoured the potential for strong ozone depletion in 2013. However, anomalous warming of the polar vortex that occurred from late Au-gust limited the overall severity of ozone depletion during spring, and resulted in the relatively early breakup of the ozone hole in mid-November.last_img read more
