Rodrigo Roncero puts Ronan O’Gara on his backside in 2008

first_imgMonday Aug 13, 2012 Rodrigo Roncero puts Ronan O’Gara on his backside in 2008 Argentina prop Rodrigo Roncero is never far from the action, and although he’s now 35 years old, he’ll be one to keep an eye on in the upcoming Rugby Championship. Here’s an amusing look at what happened with him a few years ago against Ireland.Ireland beat Argentina 17-3 in the Autumn of 2008 in what was a tempered affair at Croke Park. Ronan O’Gara kicked 12 points and set up a try to claim the Man of the Match award.He didn’t make any friends out there though as he got himself in numerous tangles with Argentine players, and fiery front rower Roncero in particular.As the game was petering out the prop and flyhalf appeared to get themselves in an off the ball scuffle, which was picked up by touch judge Mark Lawrence. A minute later Roncero found himself with ball in hand, and O’Gara, the target of his affections, directly in front of him.It’s not the first time we’ve seen ROG barged out the way but this one was quite spectacular as he went airborne, then came to ground and stuck a boot in Roncero’s nether region.What that did was set up an amusing situation as O’Gara was announced as man of the match while a handful of opposition players stood and took some shots at him, albeit verbally. He soaked it up and didn’t show any signs of backing down as the banter and abuse flowed freely.It appears as though Roncero was penalised for this charge, but it was actually for the scuffle before that, which wasn’t caught on camera. Not long afterwards, Roncero dished out a few verbals to the touchjudge, which resulted in referee Bryce Lawrence sending him to the sinbin.It was an eventful period of play and one that needed to be archived here, especially ahead of this weekend’s Rugby Championship, where we will see Roncero strutting his stuff against South Africa.Have a look at the related posts below for some huge fends, fights, and O’Gara being knocked downADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

New Date for online LSAT-India: July 19 Last Date for online Registration: July 5 The decision to push the schedule one month ahead has been taken to accommodate students appearing for CBSE Class 12th Board exams, scheduled to be held between July 1, 2020 and July 15, 2020. Earlier this month, the LSAC had announced its plan to administer the 2020 LSAT—India online. It was intimated that candidates seeking admission to law schools in the country will be able to take the LSAT—India starting the week of June 14, using an online test delivery system with artificial intelligence-assisted remote proctoring to ensure the integrity and validity of the test. Through a press note issued today it is intimated that the online LSAT—India will now be administered starting 19 July. Further, students who wish to take the online LSAT—India from the comfort and security of their own home should register as soon as possible at www.discoverlaw.in and no later than 5 July. The examination will be conducted using the AI-enabled remote proctored online test delivery system to allow candidates to test from the safety and comfort of their homes.

Test takers who have technical problems will have the opportunity to retest 2-3 days after the closing of the main testing window. Since the scheduled has been pushed ahead, the added one month’s time will be used by the LSAC to make additional information available to candidates to ease their concerns on testing on an online format. Multiple communications will be sent to candidates to familiarize them on the test procedures, do’s and don’ts, and the test interface to help them get prepared for taking the test on the new format. “By moving the testing period to the week of 19 July, we are accommodating the needs of students who need to sit for their CBSE board exams, and we can also help students be better prepared for the new LSAT—India online format,” the press note states. About LSAT—India LSAT—India is one of the leading entrance tests for undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes in India.

Moult cycle-related changes in feeding rates of larval krill Meganyctiphanes norvegica and Thysanoessa spp

first_imgKnowledge of crustacean moulting is derived mainly from benthic decapods, which often show profound changes in physiology and behaviour through the moult cycle. In contrast, euphausiids are suggested to be little impaired by moulting, enabling a swarming pelagic life. The aim of this study was to quantify moult cycle-related changes in the feeding activity of 2 euphausiids, Meganyctiphanes norvegica and Thysanoessa spp. Late furcilia larvae and early postlarvae were kept individually over 6 to 7 wk and fed with either a high or low concentration of Artemia salina nauplii or particulate fish food. The intermoult period, similar to9 d for M norvegica and similar to8 d for Thysanoessa spp., increased with body weight, but did not differ with food source. Moulting was partially synchronised, with up to 50 % of the individuals moulting within 48 h of each other. Daily feeding rates on A, salina decreased on the day before moulting, but increased during the next few days with highest values on Days 1 to 3 after moulting. The deviation from the mean feeding rate over the whole moult was more pronounced at the higher food concentration, reaching up to 40 %. Likewise, the defecation volume was reduced on the moulting day and the following day to similar to50 % of the mean, but increased to 180 % of the mean on Day 3 after moulting. Thus, the moult cycle induces significant changes in feeding rates of larval euphausiids with a similar succession of events and intensity as observed in decapods. Feeding rates, extrapolated from spot measurements on a few individuals, are unlikely to represent average values over the whole moult cycle, especially when populations moult synchronously. We propose a protocol to increase the precision of field estimates on feeding rates.last_img read more

Gibson Energy announces one million barrel expansion at Hardisty Terminal

first_img Gibson Energy announces one million barrel expansion at Hardisty Terminal. Photo: courtesy of Carlo San/Freeimages.com. Gibson Energy Inc. (“Gibson” or the “Company”), (TSX: GEI), announced today it has sanctioned the construction of one million barrels of new tankage at its Hardisty Terminal.“The sanction of two new tanks at the Top of the Hill will further increase our high-quality, long-term infrastructure revenues and drive continued distributable cash flow per share growth,” said Steve Spaulding, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “We are also very pleased to welcome a new refining customer to the terminal, reflecting the importance of Hardisty to downstream players looking to secure heavy crude feedstocks from Western Canada.  In addition, we remain in discussions for further tankage opportunities, leading to our confidence in our ability to continue to sanction tankage at a rate of two to four tanks per year in 2020, and beyond.”Expansion at Hardisty TerminalGibson has sanctioned the construction of two new 500,000 barrel tanks at the Top of the Hill portion of the Hardisty Terminal.  The additional tankage represents an expansion of the fourth phase of development at the Top of the Hill, which will be placed into service by the end of 2020.The new tankage will be constructed at a capital cost consistent with the Company’s target build multiple of 5x to 7x EBITDA under long-term, take-or-pay and stable fee-based contracts.  One of the tanks is contracted to a new investment grade refining customer, while the second tank will be leased to Gibson’s Marketing segment under an intercompany agreement with the Infrastructure segment.In November of 2019, Gibson placed four new tanks or two million barrels of tankage into service, ahead of schedule and within target capital costs.  With the sanction of additional tankage at the Top of the Hill portion of its Hardisty Terminal, Gibson currently has three tanks representing 1.5 million barrels of tankage currently under construction.  Once the fourth phase of development at the Top of the Hill is placed into service in the fourth quarter of 2020, Gibson will have approximately 13.5 million barrels of storage capacity at its Hardisty Terminal.

Blavatnik professor resigns over donor’s links to Trump

first_imgAn Oxford academic has resigned his post as Professor of Government and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government after the university failed to address his concerns that his job title was lending credibility to Donald Trump’s policies.Bo Rothstein, a Swedish political scientist, raised the issue with the University earlier this month after learning that Ukrainian-born millionaire Leonard Blavatnik, who donated £75 million to set up the Blavatnik School of Government in 2015, had given $1 million to President Trump’s inauguration committee.In his resignation letter, Rothstein said: “As I see it, Donald Trump’s policies are antithetical to the goal of the Blavatnik School of Government, which aims to improve the quality of government and public policymaking worldwide.”Rothstein told Cherwell that: “I find it impossible to defend giving credibility and legitimacy to a person who supports a regime that is 100 percent opposed to what I have found in my research and what I try to teach students.”Yet when Rothstein raised the issue with the leadership of the Blavatnik School early in August, he did not feel he was being taken seriously.“They said Mr Blavatnik gives money to this and that…and it is not for us to have an opinion about it.“If the leadership had said, yes, this is a serious problem, and we have to have a very serious discussion with Mr Blavatnik about it, because it is threatening the legitimacy of the School, it would have been different.“If they had said, we have to do something, because this goes against the values and ethical standards of the School, I would have participated in that discussion. But the leadership decided to ignore the problem. They did not seem to care much about this problem.”Rothstein maintains that: “I don’t have a problem with Oxford…Oxford is a wonderful university. But this position is not for me.”A university spokesman said: “We are unclear why he [Rothstein] has resigned over political donations made by Sir Leonard Blavatnik, which are completely unconnected to the Blavatnik School of Government.”last_img read more

Businesses propose major Oxford-Cambridge development shake-up

first_imgThere it was suggested that the Gross Value Added of the area could be increased by £163bn to a total of £250bn by doubling house-building rates in the area and delivering East-West Rail and the Oxford-Cambridge Express-way. In July of this year, Housing Minister Kit Malthouse and Business Secretary Greg Clark supported four Local Industrial Strategies along the Arc. Bidwells senior partner Patrick McMahon argued that to preserve the competitiveness of the area ‘a long-term strategy that encourages public-private collaboration is crucial’. This would include the creation of one million new homes and jobs by 2050 and the country’s first new towns in 50 years. However, local authorities were only given seven weeks (during parliamentary recess and the school holidays) to come up with housing proposals, some to house over 150,000 people. Layla Moran strongly opposes the £4 billion cost of the Express- way, but calls for the electrification of lines required for the East-West rail link to be accelerated. Moran has in the past described the Expressway as,”unpopular and questionable”. Twenty-five leading property chiefs and businesses are calling for an “Olympic-style” body to deliver infrastructure and housing required to develop the area between Oxford and Cambridge, a development project known as the “Oxford-Cambridge Arc”. For example, the opening of rail services to Cowley East will be delayed beyond 2019 and Councillor John Howson has called for the project to ‘get back on track’. Despite this, the sense of urgency has not decreased as house prices have risen by 73% in Cambridge and 67% in Oxford, in the last decade. There is also frustration at the current lack of public consultation with decisive power residing with central government. The atmosphere appears promising as the current Secretary of State for Housing, Robert Jenrick, described Bidwells proposals Party housing as a ‘down-payment Conference on broader ideas to come’, at the Conservative over the summer. The Manifesto calls for automatic brownfield development rights, a people’s planning lottery, Visas for STEM News students, houses for workers, and much more. That the ODA’s success was primarily attributable to its wide-ranging powers over local bodies and the prior compulsory purchase of the land in East Lon- don may be a cause for concern for some in Oxford who would rather empower regional authorities. The Expressway remains the most contentious issue within the broad Arc project. The No Expressway Alliance points to the lack of public consultation or evidence that it would work to reduce congestion. center_img Their proposal would entail a single body on which thirty-one local councils work with private developers to better deliver the ‘Arc’ project. The original Oxford to Cambridge Arc initiative was launched in 2003 and aimed to capitalize on the educational, research and business assets found in the area. It was then turbocharged by a National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) report in 2017. However, it was criticised by George Monbiot as amounting to a “Oxford-Cambridge conurbation”, an unnecessary expansion. This is expounded in the forthcoming ‘Radial Regeneration Manifesto’ produced by property consultancy Bidwells, architect Perkins & Will and public relations spinners Blackstock Consulting. Bidwells advise over 60% of Oxford colleges on their property and investment strategy, and the Manifesto is supported by Oxford University Innovation. The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) inspiring the proposal was a successful public-private partnership that oversaw the planning and construction of the Olympic Park in East London. They were responsible for eight sport venues, the Olympic Village, transport infrastructure, and the 2,800 homes built after the games. Parts of the proposed development, most contentiously the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway road, already face opposition from both Oxford Extinction Rebellion and the Oxford West and Abingdon MP Layla Moran, among others. They suggest the proposals would compromise greenbelt areas and pose wider environmental challenges. This is echoed by Oxford Extinction Rebellion who oppose the expressway road on account of greener alternatives, as transport already makes up 27% of total UK carbon emissions. These were developed with local authorities, businesses, and government, and intend to “set out how the area will deliver the national Industrial Strategy’s aim to raise productivity levels and to create high-quality, well paid jobs.” Conversely, the plan received support from local government leaders with new powers proposed for local councils to fund and raise finance for major infrastructure developments and combat burgeoning house prices. However, this has not yet materialised and further delays have stymied the project. This is particularly ambitious as for the scheme to work, Oxfordshire would have to provide 300,000 homes despite currently containing 280,000. The Chair of the NIC, Lord Adonis, said it constituted a “ground-breaking deal between ministers and local leaders that could transform the area.” last_img read more
