Reaction Munster show plenty of fight but cant stop Leinster charging through

first_imgTHERE WAS A lot of talk before Saturday evening’s Aviva Stadium clash about the players that would not be lining out for Leinster and Munster but a few of the players that took to the pitch made sure they were far from everyone’s thoughts.Richardt Strauss, Fergus McFadden and Andrew Conway were fantastic for the home side as Leinster hurt Rob Penney’s side out on the wings and straight up the middle.Peter O’Mahony and Mike Sherry were two of Munster’s best performers with the Number 8 showing a lot of class and determination in a losing cause.What will concern Penney is the fact that his side missed so many first up tackles that saw fledgling Leinster attacks mushroom into damaging try-scoring sequences.Strauss did fantastically to touch the ball down when facing skywards with only minutes on the clock but he should have been chopped down in the build-up to Ian Madigan’s try.Ronan O’Gara grappled with Madigan’s ankles but couldn’t prevent the try. He will be more disappointed with allowing Fergus McFadden to feign a pass then crash up the middle on 54 minutes.Munster were on the back foot after that and within 60 seconds Brian O’Driscoll was crashing over for his side’s third try of the evening.Coughing up momentumSpeaking to after the match, Penney lamented the missed tackles but was most upset by the mistakes his side made in promising positions, particularly late in the second half during the red surge.He declared that the referee should have called for the TMO after Casey Laulala had dived over for a try that, had it been given, would have made it a one-score game.Penney and Leinster coach Joe Schmidt greeted each other with warm smiles and a firm handshake amid the post-match interviews beneath the Aviva stands but the former Canterbury coach was not around to hear Schmidt confess that he had not seen the Laulala incident.That would have certainly drawn a rueful grin from the imposing but engaging Penney.Schmidt’s main concern, apart from the frequent concession of needless penalties in the first half, was further injuries to his top performers.Kevin McLaughlin, he revealed, had a hyper-extended elbow while O’Driscoll had an ankle-knock, Conway had a blow to the head and Isa Nacewa a haematoma borne out of an airborne collision with Conor Murray.Schmidt, as winning coaches are wont to do, took a big positive from the performance of replacement flanker Jordi Murphy. He highlighted a tackle by Murphy late in the game that saw Donnacha Ryan spill the ball due to the massive impact.If Leinster’s young guns can continue to step up when it counts, they should be in good shape once the fitness Gods deign to smile on them again.In Pictures: Leinster beat Munster at the Aviva StadiumAs it happened: Leinster v Munster, RaboDirect PRO12last_img read more

Imagine what we could do Irelands new generation of MMA fighters

first_img 17,735 Views BARBARIC.DISTURBING.VILE.‘Legalised GBH for for Neanderthal Morons.’These are all labels that have been placed on mixed martial arts (MMA), a sport that has been rapidly gaining popularity in this country in recent years.Another take?We can’t have people just coming out of nowhere, getting into a cage and bating the head off one another – that’s not how it works… I don’t think people understand that until they come here and see it and see how much people love it.These are not the words of a seasoned fighter like the two-title-winning Irish champion Conor McGregor, they came from 17-year-old Tallaght boy Kian Tate who takes MMA classes and trains at Straight Blast Gym’s newest facility in his neighbourhood.He was one of 46 teenagers at a class taught by former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Paddy Holohan.Speaking to at his gym this week, he insists that the safety of his fighters is the number one priority.“Even as a fighter against another fighter, it’s never really your idea to hurt the guy,” he says.“Now maybe to sell the fight or whatever [you act like that], but at the end of it you have this certain bond with your partner, your opponent, that you’ll never get from something else.”At his Monday afternoon class, with what he refers to as his “chimps” (children aged 7 to 9), he makes all of the children sit down on the mat so he can emphasise his point.“Make sure your partner’s going to be alright and that nobody gets hurt, that’s the most important thing,” he tells them. Source: Nicky Ryan/TheJournal.ieCriticism of the sport was particularly strong after the death of Portuguese fighter Joao Carvalho in April last year. He was critically injured at an MMA event in Dublin. Writing in The Guardian in the aftermath of Carcalho’s death, CEO of the UK brain injury non-profit Headway Peter McCabe said:When the objective is to render opponents senseless by kicking and punching them in the head, it is no surprise when someone is seriously hurt and sustains fatal neurological damage.For the young people who train weekly at SBG Tallaght, comments like these are a cause of frustration.“People from the outside think it’s so dangerous. It’s kind of annoying where we’re coming from. We understand all the regulations and if it’s not sanctioned it is going to be dangerous,” Tate says.He has been training in MMA for less than a year but his face lights up when he talks about it.“I love every part of it, I can’t get enough. I train with the adults as well, I’m down here every day except Fridays. You learn so much.”“People talk about it being really rough, but when you train in it you know it isn’t,” adds 15-year-old Jamie McCarthy who is also in the class.He makes reference to a recent Premier League match during which Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason fractured his skull in a clash with a Chelsea defender: “He got injured but they’re not trying to put a ban on football.” Subscribe for more videos By Michelle Hennessy Source: Share89 Tweet Email Jan 29th 2017, 9:30 PM center_img Sunday 29 Jan 2017, 9:30 PM 46 Comments Source: Nicky Ryan/TheJournal.ieFifteen-year-old Emma Yeats was looking for a new hobby that would challenge her when she heard about SBG Tallaght. She said before she started classes, no one in her family even thought about MMA.“I was the one to introduce it to my house and my mam doesn’t like it at all, and neither does my dad. They’re still really supportive – my mam came to my first Jujitsu fight – so it’s not like they don’t approve, I think they’d just prefer I was doing something like football,” she said.‘It can be easy to misinterpret it’Holohan believes MMA is an easy target and describes many of the comments about it as “ill-informed”. Source: Nicky Ryan/“If you don’t know what’s going on, you don’t understand the levels of respect that go on and the grassroots of it coming all the way up, it can be easy to misinterpret it,” he explains.Not to attack the sport of boxing, I know a good bit about boxing, but if you look at Bernard Dunne, he fought for his world title and he was basically knocked out and then stood back up. I read his book and I remember reading about that moment and he was saying he didn’t really know what was going on so he got back up off the canvass and then he’s going back in to fight. In MMA, if you came close to anything like that and the ref is qualified and seeing that, the fight is over – stopped straight away.The Irish Mixed Martial Arts Association (IMMAA), headed up by McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh, has been meeting with Sport Ireland in recent months to lobby for proper regulation of the sport.The body was established in March last year and although it has no legal powers, Kavanagh told that “the vast majority” of active MMA clubs are now a part of the association.“As a group, we’ve done things like we have an insurance policy that all clubs can avail of that’s specifically for MMA. We are also going through the process so we can do garda vetting for coaches of juniors and vulnerable adults,” he continued.The problem now, he said, is that without recognition of the sport and the official regulations that would follow, “anybody can run an MMA event on a Saturday night and the could run it to whatever standard they see fit”.‘I feel much calmer’ At amateur level, out of the spotlight and without promoters or pay-per-view figures, the young people who train in MMA speak openly about the positive changes they have seen in themselves since they started.Kian Tate laughs as he recalls his “hothead” tendencies before he became involved in mixed martial arts. “I used to always get myself into little scraps, and I started watching UFC when I was about 12 and loved it. Since I started this I feel much calmer, it’s a good way to release stress or whatever.I was never proper fighting with my ma and da, but there were silly things we’d argue about and it’s not like that really anymore. I still have focus on school and all but I think about this all the time, I just love it.“Before, your ma would threaten to take your Playstation off you if you were acting up, now they’re threatening not to let you go training,” 15-year-old Jamie McCarthy jokes. Source: Nicky Ryan/“The amount of kids here that have come in shy and literally this has changed their well-being, I think. A lot of teachers, the parent-teacher meetings have just gone and they came back and said: ‘Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it’,” Holohan says.If you look at society today, kids communicate through headphones and computer games and texts and stuff like that. It’s very rare that you will see a group of kids actually just in a group without a ball, without any other accessories, just kinda playing and contacting with each other, you know?“We do a lot to do with self-respect and honour and bravery and a lot of words are thrown around loosely these days so I make sure the kids understand what these words mean and when you do things that go against you, what you lose,” he adds. Source: Julio Cortez/PAThat process is beginning at a young age for Holohan’s ‘chimps’.Cian Warren is just nine years old and in conversation after his class, he speaks about having dreams for his future and wanting to achieve them.What does he like about Conor McGregor? That the Irish fighter “never gives up”.The kids all look up to McGregor, he is their idol (“an inspiration”, according to 17-year-old Tate).And it’s not just the fame, the suits, the lifestyle.“We all know that with money comes hard work,” 16-year-old Sarah Carney begins.“He wouldn’t have got where he was without working hard, you don’t just wake up one day great at it.”McGregor, who spent years out of the spotlight training while he collected the dole, has influenced and inspired them, according to 15-year-old McCarthy: “Look at the ages the others before us were when they started. We’re still young, so we’re years ahead. Imagine what we could do.”Video by Nicky Ryan ‘Imagine what we could do’: Ireland’s new generation of MMA fighters spent some time this week with young people who are learning MMA in one of the country’s newest gyms.

Vancouver trooper tackles derailment fallout

first_imgWhen Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn started his workday on Monday, the Amtrak derailment in DuPont had already made national news.Finn said he didn’t hesitate. The Vancouver-based trooper put in some calls, telling his colleagues he was ready to head north to the site of the wreck at any moment.“I knew they would need all hands on deck to help with the tragedy,” he said in an interview Thursday at The Columbian.Finn is a visible presence in the community. He’s supposed to be, as the District 5 public information officer for the state patrol. But his frequent and light-hearted tweets, and his willingness to interact with residents on social media, help the trooper stand out among his peers.It wasn’t a desire to become the face of Monday’s tragedy that prompted Finn to offer help. It was his natural pull toward helping the community and the knowledge he gained in his years of training for such an event.Amtrak Train 501 derailed Monday, killing three people and injuring several dozen passengers. The derailment blocked all three southbound lanes of Interstate 5.After working in rain, wind and near-freezing temperatures, crews began to reopen the lanes Wednesday night. Still, much work remains.It was shortly after 7:30 a.m. when the train, which had departed Seattle bound for Vancouver and Portland, derailed on a new stretch of track. Finn was told to head up to the scene shortly after he made his calls, but jammed traffic on the freeway’s northbound lanes meant it would take several hours.Finn arrived just before 11 a.m. He pulled his vehicle onto the shoulder of the northbound lanes across from the wreckage. The scene was “surreal,” he said.last_img read more

(AP) — California’s troubled Department of Motor Vehicles will get a new leader Dec. 31.Gov. Jerry Brown designated Bill Davidson as acting director on Monday to take over for Jean Shiomoto, who is leaving at the end of the year. Davidson is currently the chief deputy director and has worked at the DMV for 16 years, working in field operations and as the budget officer. Davidson also helped implement California’s program that allows non-citizens to get drivers licenses.Davidson will take over after a tumultuous year that saw hours-long wait times as the agency rolled out new federal ID requirements and a series of problems related to California’s “motor voter” program that automatically registers eligible people to vote.In the latest error, Shiomoto said the agency failed to transmit 589 voter-related forms to elections officials before the November election, potentially preventing those people from voting.Brown did not comment beyond a letter designating Davidson as acting director. Davidson did not offer comment through an agency spokesman.Shiomoto told employees earlier this month she planned to step down at the end of the year after 38 years working for the state, DMV spokesman Armando Botello said Friday.Her retirement plans became public after Secretary of State Alex Padilla called on Brown to replace her, saying he’d lost trust in her given the series of voter registration errors.Earlier this year the DMV said it mistakenly registered roughly 1,500 people to vote. That group may have included non-citizens, people under 18 or those ineligible to vote because of a criminal conviction.Brown’s term as governor ends in January.

Volcanoes stand tall as IBL champs

first_imgKevin Bloodsaw raised his fists in triumph, then leaped onto the press table three feet above the gymnasium floor. Truth is, he was a lot higher than that.The 39-year-old and the team he plays for have each been waiting seven years for their first International Basketball League championship.When the Vancouver Volcanoes beat the Edmonton Energy 124-116 in the league’s title game Sunday, the surrounding euphoria in the O’Connell Sports Center at Clark College was not to be suppressed. “I can’t even describe it. This is all we worked hard for at the beginning of the season,” said Bloodsaw, who then picked up his 4-year-old son Devin and said to him, “we did it.” “This is what I came here for, to bring a championship to Vancouver.” Volcanoes majority owner/coach Bryan Hunter was equally driven to capture a title. Hunter bought the team five years ago and vividly remembers Vancouver’s four consecutive losses in the semifinals heading into this postseason. A brilliant start to this year was overshadowed by five losses in seven games as the playoff neared, along with Hunter having to dismiss players who interfered with the Volcanoes’ cohesiveness. But considering Vancouver (15-6) ended the season on a five-game winning streak, it’s safe to assume the problems were sorted out.last_img read more

Catrina Smith Sex discrimination case places spotlight on shared parental leave

first_imgIn the Snell v Network Rail Infrastructure case, a male employee has succeeded in his claim for sex discrimination against his employer, Network Rail, and has been awarded nearly £30,000. His claim was based on the fact that while he would receive only statutory pay for any period of shared parental leave, his partner, the child’s mother, who also worked for the same employer, would receive full pay for 26 weeks followed by a further 13 weeks of statutory pay.Network Rail conceded that its family-friendly policy was discriminatory in relation to its treatment of the claimant during the period of shared parental leave. As a result of the claim, the employer has amended its shared parental leave policy so that a mother’s pay during periods of shared parental leave has been reduced to the same statutory rate received by a father taking shared parental leave.Although this case is a Scottish tribunal case and is therefore not binding on English tribunals, it is not a surprising decision. Government guidance on shared parental leave suggests that if an employer offers an occupational scheme to a mother on shared parental leave it could constitute sex discrimination if such an occupational scheme was not offered to a father or the mother’s partner.There had been press reports that Network Rail had reduced its enhanced maternity pay to the statutory level as well. However, this is not the case and it, like many employers and following government guidance, continues to offer enhanced maternity pay, but not shared parental leave pay.Therefore the question of whether an employer can differentiate in this way, and any objective justification as a defence (for example, to recruit and retain women in a male-dominated workforce) remains another discrimination argument for another day.Catrina Smith is partner in the employment team at law firm Norton Rose Fulbrightlast_img read more

Valerie Ervin Quits Gov Race Endorses Baker

first_imgBy Kamau High, AFRO Managing Editor, khigh@afro.comValerie Ervin dropped out of the Maryland governor’s race and endorsed her rival, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker.Ervin’s campaign sent out a news advisory Tuesday evening saying Ervin and Marisol Johnson, her running mate, would endorse Baker at Langley Park in Prince George’s County. “The location is symbolic because the Hogan administration made deep cuts to the Purple Line project, which caused significant delays in launching its construction and potentially costing Maryland taxpayers more,” the advisory said.Valerie Ervin (right) and her running mate Marisol Johnson are dropping out of the Maryland governor’s race. (Courtesy photo)On June 13, Ervin tweeted, “Thank you to my supporters! Today I announced my support for the Baker/Embry ticket!”In a video posted on Twitter, Ervin said, “Even though we’ve only been in this race for 26 days, we brought the fire.”Ervin had been polling behind the two leaders in the Democratic race Ben Jealous, former head of the NAACP, and Baker. Ervin became the head of the ticket when her running mate, Kevin Kamenetz, died unexpectedly earlier this year. She was in the process of suing the Maryland State Board of Elections to get her and Johnson’s name on the ticket before the primary election on June 26. Ervin and Johnson made history as the first gubernatorial ticket in Maryland history to boast two women of color.“Today is about coming together to provide opportunities for all Marylanders and to fight for working families. We are so honored to have @ValerieErvin and @electmarisol join our team,” Rushern Baker tweeted after receiving their endorsement. He then followed up with, “When we talk about advancing a progressive agenda, increasing access to health care and strengthening schools, @ValerieErvin and @electmarisol have actually gotten it done.”With additional reporting by Ty’rique Sims.last_img read more

The BBC brings the history of computing to life

first_imgThe Computer Literacy Project was launched by the BBC in the early eighties. Running throughout the decade, it aimed to document and explore computing and programming for a generation of British people born long before the concept even emerged. The corporation even created its own personal computer, called the BBC Micro, which people could use to learn how to program. Now, the BBC has opened up access to its entire Computer Literacy Project archive. Featuring 267 programs, 146 of which were part of the original Computer Literacy Project, it offers a valuable insight into the years when computing began to enter into the public consciousness. There are also interviews with particularly young-looking Steve Wozniak and Bill gates… Run BBC Micro software in your browser The initiative also features old BBC Micro programs that you can run in your browser. These include BASE3, which illustrates how a database works, and ENCRY3B, which shows you some simple encryption methods from the eighties. It’s well worth exploring! The best Computer Literacy Project TV shows The archive features an impressive range of content. Some of it features even earlier television programs, like Tomorrow’s World, a BBC technology program. Watch this clip to see what computing in the sixties looked like… But many of the programs were created as part of the project too. Here are some of the best, which you can watch online for free. The Silicon Factor, first broadcast in 1980 This show was a prequel to everything that we’ve been living through over the last 30 years. It explores how microchips could change British industry, and what might happen if Britain fails to keep up with the rest of the world. It’s well worth watching as a useful historical document of how people viewed technology at the end of the twentieth century. There are certainly some parallels with where we are today and the concerns around artificial intelligence and automation. Electronic Office, first broadcast in 1984 Electronic Office was a prophetic look at the lives we’d lead today. Okay, so it isn’t all prophetic, and some it might seem strange to us today. But there’s obviously much more about how we work today that would seem even stranger to anyone watching the program in the mid-eighties. With a Little Help from the Chip, first broadcast in 1985 With a Little Help from the Chip throws up plenty of interesting parallels with where we are today in terms of IoT and connected homes. It also demonstrates how technology can be used to support people who need it. It gives us an insight on an one of the earliest ways in which technology was used to provide an innovative solution to a complex social issue. The BBC reminds us that people drive innovation, not technology Yes, the archive is a fun and engaging way to look at the history of software, but it also reminds us that innovation is never set in stone. Progress and development are often uncertain (and sometimes a little bit frightening). It has taken a generation of people to get us to where we are today – and it will take generations of people to build the future.last_img read more

Malaysia Air battles back from the brink of collapse as MH370 search

first_imgTags: Malaysia Airlines, MH370 Tuesday, January 17, 2017 Malaysia Air battles back from the brink of collapse as MH370 search is called off Share HONG KONG — Nearly three years after twin disasters took it to the brink of financial collapse, Malaysia Airlines’ new CEO says an overhaul aimed at turning the ailing carrier around is going better than expected.The search for the airline’s flight 370 that went missing in March 2014 with 239 people on board was suspended Tuesday.CEO Peter Bellew called the disaster an “awful tragedy.”“There’s people I work with every day who lost some of their friends, so they’re living with that,” he said Tuesday. “We owe it to the people that lost their lives and the families and everything to make sure that the place is a success and that it survives, because that’s the right thing to do,” Bellew said when asked about the disaster at an industry gathering in Hong Kong.Bellew said the airline is on track to meet key performance goals, including turning an annual profit by 2018 and relisting on the stock exchange the following year.More news:  Flight Centre Travel Group takes full ownership of Quebec-based agencyThe company’s jets are carrying more passengers, including on its London route, he said. London is the carrier’s last remaining European route and one where it uses superjumbo Airbus A380 jets that must carry many passengers to be profitable.Just months after Flight 370 disappeared, a second Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 carrying 298 people was shot down over Ukraine.Those tragedies deepened the carrier’s already daunting troubles.An unsustainable network of routes, high operating costs and archaic online systems were symptoms of chronic mismanagement that had saddled the airline with at least $1.7 billion in losses since 2011.Bellew’s predecessor Cristoph Mueller, who left the job unexpectedly early in June, described the airline as a “ship that has many leaks.”Updates on the finances of the airline are scant: it was delisted from the stock exchange in 2014 and radically restructured with 6 billion ringgit ($1.5 billion) in government support.But lower jet fuel prices have since helped cut costs, and revenue has improved thanks to strong traffic growth in the region. << Previous PostNext Post >> Source: The Associated Presslast_img read more
