Goosen picked ahead of Steyn

first_img Starter for 10: The Cheetah’s fly-half has pipped Morne Steyne to the 10 shirt and notches up his first senior startHEYNEKE MEYER has handed Cheetah’s fly-half Johan Goosen his first Test start, picking the former Baby Bok over an out-of-form Morne Steyn, against Australia in Pretoria on Saturday.Etzebeth is back in the Springbok team after missing the previous Test due to suspension,  and will pair up with Andries Bekker in the middle row.On the bench there’s four changes with Coenie Oosthuizen returning from injury, Flip van der Merwe swapping places with Bekker, plus Jantjies and Taute.“I’ve maintained from the outset that I won’t rush Johan, but I feel he is now ready to start a Test for South Africa and I’m excited to see what he can bring,” said Meyer.“Morné (Steyn), in the last four seasons, has played close to 140 matches at Test, Vodacom Super Rugby and Absa Currie Cup level and probably deserves a break, but this also provides a great opportunity for Johan, a player I rate very highly. Starting XV:15. Zane Kirchner, 14. Bryan Habana, 13. Jean de Villiers (C), 12. Frans Steyn/Jaco Taute, 11. Frans Hougaard, 10. Johan Goosen, 9. Ruan Pienaar, 1. Tendai Mtawarira, 2. Adriaan Strauss, 3. Jannie du Plessis, 4. Eben Etzebeth, 5. Andries Bekker, 6. Francois Louw, 7. Willem Alberts, 8. Duane VermeulenReplacements:16. Tiaan Lebenberg, 17. Coenie Oosthuizen, 18. Flip van der Merwe, 19. Marcell Coetzee, 20. Elton Jantjies, 21. Jaco Taute/Juan de Jongh, 22 Pat Lambie “Morné is a quality player and a fighter and I know he will bounce back.”Frans Steyn, who has been struggling with an ankle injury, has been bracketed with Taute in the midfield. Should Steyn not pass a fitness test by Friday, Taute will start and Juan de Jongh will come in on the bench.South Africa v AustraliaSaturday, 29th September 2012 at Loftus Versfeld, PretoriaKick-off: 16:00 BST live on Sky Sports 2 DUNEDIN, NEW ZEALAND – SEPTEMBER 15: Johan Goosen of South Africa in action during the Rugby Championship match between the New Zealand All Blacks and South Africa at Forsyth Barr Stadium on September 15, 2012 in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Ben Foden charge floors big Ally Kellock

first_imgWednesday Mar 17, 2010 Ben Foden charge floors big Ally Kellock Ben Foden looks set to make his first Test start when England take on France this weekend in the Grand Slam decider of the Six Nations. Foden had a cracking game when coming on as sub against Scotland on Saturday, just ask Alastair Kellock.The dynamic young fullback came on as a replacement and looked dangerous with ball in hand more often than not, something that England have lacked in recent times. With Delon Armitage having been released to his club, Foden will no doubt start against France.Foden showed that he not only has the running and creative game, but packs a punch as he left quite an impression on 6ft9 Scotland lock Kellock.“I won’t forget my introduction to England substitute full-back Ben Foden in a hurry as we collided with such an impact during the second half my back molars rattled.“It was an elbow to the voice box, or was it his head? No matter, on came our brilliant doc James Robson to secure my neck. Doing my best Barry White impression I managed to assure him I was OK but understandably he was taking no risks after events of recent weeks,” he said in his column, in reference to the recent Thom Evans injury.Foden knocked him to the floor with incredible force, leaving him strewn on the turf for a few minutes while play went on. In a rather comical piece of sporting theatre, Kellock suddenly got up when needed, and played on.“A request by a medic to secure an oxygen mask to my face was brushed aside and, lo and behold, as I got to my feet didn’t the ball just come my way?“I didn’t think twice before grabbing it and heading for a gap in the England defence to roars of laughter from the crowd, a rare moment of comedy in a bruising battle of a game,” he added. :: Related Posts :: Scotland and England stalemate at Murrayfield Time: 01:17ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Unrestricted funds are funds which a charity has raised for its general expenditure and can be spent on any cost associated with the charity’s activities.Restricted funds have declined from nearly £700,000 to under £4,000, probably related to CCF’s expenditure on the organisation’s respite facility, Daisy Lodge.Rory McElroy announced early last year that he was making a £1 million donation to CCF spread over four years in support of Daisy Lodge’s running costs.CCF has a strong community fundraising presence in Northern Ireland, particularly with fundraising events while its corporate fundraising has grown in recent years.Photo: Rory McIlroy – photo: Edbalaun on Flickr.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 23 January 2015 | Newslast_img read more

Chaaban Abboud released after five days in custody

first_img Help by sharing this information Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Organisation Chaaban Abboud, correspondent for Lebanese daily An-Nahar and the Kuwait daily Al Ra’i al Aam, has been released on bail. The journalist was arrested on 2 March and charged by a Damascus military court with “publishing mendacious reports harmful to national security”.Abboud had written an article on appointments within the security and intelligence services, a few days before his arrest. RSF_en March 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Chaaban Abboud released after five days in custody March 12, 2021 Find out more News News SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Syria to go further The daily An-Nahar said in a statement on 7 march that the “arrest of the journalist was because of routine procedures, following transfers within the security services”. The paper added that “the intervention of journalists and human rights activists helped reduce the bureaucratic steps and meant that law triumph in the handling of this case”.————————————————————————–07.03.2006 Authorities arrest local correspondent of Lebanese newspaper An-NaharReporters Without Borders today called for the release of Shaaban Abboud, the Damascus correspondent of the Lebanese daily An-Nahar and the Kuwaiti daily Al Ra’i al Aam, who was arrested on 2 March under a 1963 state of emergency law and charged with “publishing mendacious reports harmful to national security.” He faces up to five years in prison.“All Abboud did was mention reports which are known to everyone and which have already been published on websites run by senior members of the Baath party,” the press freedom organisation said. “The Syrian government continues to use its old repressive methods to prevent the emergence of an independent press. The 1963 state of emergency serves as a pretext for harassing and arresting journalists who dare to criticise the authorities.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The real reason for Abboud’s arrest was obviously political. An-Nahar, one of the newspapers he contributes to, is known for being very critical of the Syrian government and has been banned within Syria for years. The murders last year of An-Nahar editorialist Sami Kassir and its executive editor Gebran Tuéni clearly have not made Abboud’s work any easier.”Abboud was arrested as a result of a report in the 1 March issue of An-Nahar about appointments within the Syrian intelligence services. He was taken before a military court under an article in the 1963 state of emergency law providing for the trial of anyone jeopardising state security.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Syrian lawyer and human rights activist Anwar Bounni called for Abboud’s release and stressed the irregularity of his arrest. “Taking him before a military tribunal is a serious violation of his right to freedom, as military tribunals are supposed to be used only in exceptional circumstances for civilians and permit long periods of arbitrary pre-trial detention,” Bounni said. He added: “Journalists are normally tried before civilian courts under the law on publications.” Receive email alerts News March 8, 2021 Find out more News Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists February 3, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Powell Chairman of the Federal Reserve.Building on the Fed’s existing tailoring of its rules and consistent with the changes from the Economic Growth, Regulatory Reform, and Consumer Protection Act, large banks with total consolidated assets of more than $100 billion would fall under four categories under these new guidelines.The biggest banks in the U.S. such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of New York Mellon, State Street, and Northern Trust would fall under the first two categories. Banks under this category, according to the Fed are high risk and would not see any changes in regulations related to their capital or liquidity requirements.Under the third category, financial institutions such as U.S. Bancorp, PNC Financial, Capital One, and Charles Schwab would have their standardized liquidity requirements reduced to reflect their more stable funding profile but remain subject to a range of enhanced liquidity standards. They would also be required to conduct company-run stress tests on a two-year cycle rather than semi-annually. However, they would remain subject to the annual supervisory stress tests.A majority of banks in the U.S. fall under the fourth category, the lowest-risk one and would no longer be subjected to standardized liquidity requirements. While they would remain subject to firm-developed liquidity stress tests and regulatory liquidity risk management standards, these firms would no longer be required to conduct company-run stress tests, and their supervisory stress tests would be moved to a two-year cycle, rather than an annual one.”With these proposals, banking organizations will see reduced regulatory complexity and easier compliance with no material decline in the strength of the U.S. banking system,” said Randal K. Quarles Vice Chairman for Supervision at the Federal Reserve.Hailing this move as a positive one, Jeb Hensarling, House Financial Committee Chairman, said that the new framework provided clarity to banks on regulatory requirements. “I wish the proposal went further but it represents a much-needed tailored approach to regulatory supervision.To view the details of the Prudential Standards for Large Bank Holding Companies and Savings and Loan Holding Companies framework by the Fed, click here.

Besides, the orders have been passed not only in respect of the Respondent who had filed the writ petition but also in respect of all other accused persons.”The matter before the High Court was filed in the evening of 14.09.2020 alleging that the Respondent was anticipating that the Petitioner herein would take coercive measures against the Respondent. It is primarily to prevent such alleged coercive measures that the matter had been filed. An FIR came to be lodged thereafter at about 9.00 A.M. in the morning of 15.09.2020. It is most respectfully submitted that upon filing of the FIR, the Petition had become infructuous. However, not only was the Petition considered but a slew of directions/restraint directions were passed by the Hon’ble High Court even when the FIR was not questioned. More importantly, these directions were passed not only in respect of the Respondent herein but also in respect of all other Accused Persons – without reference to the contents of the FIR”The Petitioner (AP Govt) has submitted that right from Emperor Vs Khwaja Nazir Ahmad AIR 1945 PC 18, Courts have repeatedly frowned upon High Courts interfering with the course of investigation. It is time and again been held that investigation is the domain of the investigation agencies and the Courts ought not to interfere until the investigation is complete. The Court passed the order following an urgent hearing held at 6.30 PM on Tuesday (September 15)., Senior Advocates Mukul Rohatgi and Shyam Divan appeared for the petitioners.”A writ petition seeking to pre-empt investigation even before an FIR is registered cannot be entertained. In fact, the Hon’ble Courts have repeatedly held (albiet in a different context) that an Accused has no right of hearing before the registration of FIR. The aforesaid principle is applicable to the present proceedings with even more vigour. [See Anju Chaudhary v. State of U.P. and Another (2013) 6 SCC 384]”Quoting the above Judgment the Petitioner submitted that the prospective accused/suspect does not have, in any manner, a right of hearing before the registration of FIR. Such a right is not envisaged under any provision of Cr.P.C. as well as it runs contrary to the observations made by the Supreme Court in various judicial pronouncements Hence, the impugned judgment lies in the teeth of the various judicial rulings of this Court as well as the provisions of the Code and is therefore, wholly unwarranted, unprecedented and liable to be set aside.The petitioner raises following questions in the PetitionA. Whether investigation can be stayed when the FIR has not even been questioned?B. Whether a stay on investigation can be granted as a matter of routine at the very threshold of such investigation?C. Whether the stay of investigation at the threshold not only impedes the entire criminal machinery, which has been set into motion pursuant to the registration of an FIR, but is also against the basic tenets of criminal jurisprudenceD. Whether the stay of investigation ought to be granted ordinarily and in a routine manner?E. Whether any proposed accused/suspect has a right of hearing even before the registration of an FIR under the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973?F. Whether the Hon’ble High Court ought to have interfered with the investigation process which is a distinct domain of the investigation agency?G. Whether the investigation process against any person ought to be stayed when there are prima facie specific allegations against him in the FIR?Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Post-breeding movement and activities of two streaked shearwaters in the north-western Pacific

first_imgWe used miniature light-level/immersion loggers (geolocators) to study the movements and behavior of two Streaked Shearwaters (Calonectris leucomelas) during their travel away from Japan, after the breeding season. During the period from late October until late December, the tracked shearwaters moved south over subtropical pelagic waters,with low productivity. The birds traveled to the seas off northern New Guinea and the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia, 3400-5200 km distant from Mikura Island, their breeding colony in Japan. During the wintering period (December-February), the birds were on the sea surface for 77-85% of their time on average. The migratory and wintering behavior of Streaked Shearwaters are discussed in relation to the physical and biological marine environment of the north-western Pacific.last_img read more

Antarctic ozone loss in 1979-2010: first sign of ozone recovery

first_imgA long-term ozone loss time series is necessary to understand the evolution of ozone in Antarctica. Therefore, we construct the time series using ground-based, satellite and bias-corrected multi-sensor reanalysis (MSR) data sets for the period 1989–2010. The trends in ozone over 1979–2010 are also estimated to further elucidate its evolution in the wake of decreasing halogen levels in the stratosphere. Our analysis with ground-based observations shows that the average ozone loss in the Antarctic is about −33 to −50% (−90 to −155 DU (Dobson Unit)) in 1989–1992, and then stayed at around −48% (−160 DU). The ozone loss in the warmer winters (e.g. 2002 and 2004) is lower (−37 to −46%), and in the very cold winters (e.g. 2003 and 2006) it is higher (−52 to −55%). These loss estimates are in good agreement with those estimated from satellite observations, where the differences are less than ±3%. The ozone trends based on the equivalent effective Antarctic stratospheric chlorine (EEASC) and piecewise linear trend (PWLT) functions for the vortex averaged ground-based, Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer/Ozone Monitoring Instrument (TOMS/OMI), and MSR data averaged over September–November exhibit about −4.6 DU yr−1 over 1979–1999, corroborating the role of halogens in the ozone decrease during the period. The ozone trends computed for the 2000–2010 period are about +1 DU yr−1 for EEASC and +2.6 DU yr−1 for the PWLT functions. The larger positive PWLT trends for the 2000–2010 period indicate the influence of dynamics and other basis functions on the increase of ozone. The trends in both periods are significant at 95% confidence intervals for all analyses. Therefore, our study suggests that Antarctic ozone shows a significant positive trend toward its recovery, and hence, leaves a clear signature of the successful implementation of the Montreal Protocol.last_img read more
