Brian O’Driscoll career summary after 99 Test caps

first_imgFriday Mar 12, 2010 Brian O’Driscoll career summary after 99 Test caps Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll will tomorrow reach the milestone of having played 100 Tests for his country when his team hosts Wales in the Six Nations match at Croke Park. He is only the Irish second player to reach a century of Test appearances, following on from prop John Hayes.ODriscoll has played in three World Cups, three Lions tours, and experienced wins in both the Heineken Cup and Six Nations. Hes still only 31, but has already captained his country 63 times. He becomes only the 13th player to reach one hundred Test matches.Making his debut against Australia as a 20 year old in 1999, ODriscolls coach on that day was none other than current Welsh coach Warren Gatland. Hes said it was an honour for him to have been involved with the man they call BOD back then.“And during the Lions tour I could see just how much he had developed as a player and a leader, how much he understands the game and the impact he has on other players, Gatland said.“I think he has a few more years left. Ireland have looked after him, they have not overplayed him. He is important to them as an individual and captain as they work towards the World Cup,” he added.Welsh captain Martyn Williams has called him the best player in the northern hemisphere for the last decade, while teammate Geordan Murphy has said that every team in the world respects ODriscoll, which frees up space for the players around him.He’s a good guy with it, as well. It’s unbelievable that he has such stature in world rugby at a relatively young age,” Murphy said.ODriscoll himself has played down the milestone, calling it just another week in rugby.“Sure it’s nice getting a lot of text messages coming in from past players and coaches. It’s lovely from that point of view.“But I don’t see any reason to get caught up in the hype of it all. Someone said to me ‘101 Test matches is more impressive than a hundred’. So maybe John Hayes should be the one that’s up here,” he said at the press conference earlier in the week.“I didn’t set a target in 1999 that I wanted to achieve 100 Test matches. A few years ago I thought it would be really nice to make a hundred. But I haven’t gone ‘I want to achieve 120’, I’m just going game by game and really enjoying it still.”A captain who leads by example, ODriscoll has been a huge factor in Irelands success of late, and if all goes to plan, hell be there leading his side in New Zealand in 2011. This clip was requested and is a basically just a short summary of O’Driscoll’s great career so far.

Footage shows what really started incident between trans-Tasman hookers

first_imgMonday Oct 29, 2018 Footage shows what really started incident between trans-Tasman hookers Wallabies hooker Tolu Latu’s sin-bin for retaliation against the All Blacks on Saturday rubbed a lot of Australian fans the wrong way, including former player Phil Kearns. However, footage shows that while it appeared to most that Codie Taylor provoked it, Latu actually started it.ADVERTISEMENTFormer Wallaby hooker Kearns was outspoken post-match, suggesting preferential treatment was at play yet again as French referee Romain Poite left Taylor on the field but penalised and yellow carded Latu.The incident occurred at a fairly crucial time in the Yokohama Bledisloe Cup Test, snubbing out a Wallabies comeback as they eventually went on to lose 37-20.KEARNS BLOWS UPKearns felt that Latu was baited into it by Taylor, and Poite ignored that.“That yellow card, I’ve got to say, I’m consistently frustrated — and I know world rugby is, the other teams except New Zealand — frustrated with the free ride New Zealand get from referees globally,” Kearns said on Fox Sports post-match.“Disappointing from Tolu. Yes, sure, he shouldn’t have done it but really, referees, get a grip, nothing happened, no-one was hurt, no-one was punched.ADVERTISEMENT“It was just a little push and the other bloke pushed him first. I mean that whole thing just doesn’t make any sense. Just get on with the game and that was part of my frustration, with the All Blacks getting a free ride. Get both of them off.”As can be seen here, it was actually Latu that put his hand in Taylor’s face first, leading to the reaction from the All Black hooker.INITIAL PROVOCATIONADVERTISEMENTReplays at the time did not show the first shove as the scrum broke up, leading to misinformed reactions from coaches and media alike.HANSEN ON DOING DUMB THINGSAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen said that the yellow card might have been a bit harsh, but said: “You are not allowed to strike someone in the face so it was pretty dumb wasn’t it. And if you do dumb things you get dumb reactions.“The referee had no other option by the law and if he hadn’t done it he would have been chewed up by his bosses. He’s just done what the law says he should do and given the guy 10 minutes.  I think the young hooker has overreacted to something and to be honest Codie did, too but he didn’t hit him in the head. He pushed him on the shoulder. It was a whole lot of nothing really.”CHEIKA REASONABLE“You shouldn’t do it because if they push us and he pushes back then he should know it is going to come back on us. That is just the nature of where we are at the moment,” said Wallabies coach Michael Cheika.“He shouldn’t do it but at the same time as a footballer you don’t want to be pushed. I don’t think the referee was going to do anything about it when he kept coming towards him.“I understand he wants to look after himself and stand up for himself that is part of the game.. but not in that manner.”KEPU STEPS INWallabies prop Sekope Kepu said that he’s since had a word with 25-year-old hooker Latu.“I’ve had a word to him but you can’t get too bogged down in it, it’s a spur of moment thing,” Kepu said. “You come up from the scrum, you’re pinged, there are words and stuff gets exchanged in those moments. On a bigger picture we can’t let that happen, we’ve got to tidy that stuff up. It didn’t cost us the game but it did put a little bit more pressure on us.”“Tolu is obviously disappointed in himself but I’m sure he’s going to learn from it.”The Wallabies have a training camp in Japan before they head to Europe for their end of year tour. Their first match is against Wales in Cardiff, followed by Tests against Italy and England.New Zealand meanwhile will have a team stay behind in Japan, where they will take on the Rugby World Cup 2019 hosts next weekend. credit: rugby.com.au/foxsports 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.

All meals are prepared from scratch on-site daily by culinary-trained chefs.The market is also known to play opera music in the background to add to the elegant ambiance.According to the CBRE|UCR press release, Senior Vice President Greg Pierce was in charge of site selection for the new Eatzi’s location, and chose the lot currently occupied by Chili’s Bar & Grill.“This is a pivotal location for a lifestyle concept like Eatzi’s which offers high-quality, fresh, prepared foods,” said Pierce. “It’s one of the best locations in all of Fort Worth, right in the heart of an affluent, densely populated area. The end cap location offers ample parking, patios, and great visibility to University Drive.”The CEO of Eatzi’s, Adam Romo, said the company is extremely excited to open their first Fort Worth location.“Fort Worth is a fantastic city for food, retailing, and entertainment,” said Romo. “The consumers are educated, discerning, and sophisticated foodies, and they demand what Eatzi’s offers.”Because of its proximity to TCU’s campus, Eatzi’s new location will also provide another option for students who shop regularly at the Kroger on Berry Street.TCU student and Dallas native, Courtney Johnson, said Eatzi’s is one of the things she has missed most since she moved to Fort Worth.“I’m so excited it’s coming to Fort Worth,” said Johnson. “It’s truly a one of a kind place that saves so much time. It’s quality and healthy food I can always count on, and it tastes better than my own cooking.”Johnson also said she is looking forward to having the fresh option so close by.“Having it right next to campus will be awesome,” said Johnson. “I often pick up my lunch on the way to class, so this will be much healthier and quicker.”Construction for the fifth Eatzi’s location began Nov. 1, and should be open to the public early March 2017.

Islamic court militias arrest three journalists in Kismayo, close down their radio station

But the facts exist and it is the job of the press to report them. You cannot make them disappear by punishing, arrested or threatening journalists.”The UIC militias arrested the three HornAfrik journalists – Sahro Abdi Ahmed, Layla Sheik Ismail and Adam Mohammed Salad – at around 11 a.m. today, one of their colleagues told Reporters Without Borders. Ismail is also the correspondent of the Somali Broadcasting Corporation (SBC), a privately-owned radio and TV station based in Puntland, while Salad is also the correspondent of the Puntland-based Radio Daljir.The UIC militias, who arrived in Kismayo on 24 September, were also looking for reporter Hassan Mohammed Nur and Nasteh Dahir Farah, the manager of HornAfrik’s branch in Kismayo. Both went into hiding at once. Ahmed, Ismail and Salad were released a few hours later after being ordered not to refer to the Islamic courts any more.The Reporters Without Borders partner organisation in Somalia, the National Union of Somali journalists (NUSOJ), said militiamen went to the Kismayo branch of HornAfrik at about 6 p.m. yesterday and demanded the keys to the premises. When the manager refused to hand them over, they turned off its generator and took up position outside.The UIC militiamen said they had come to the station because it had broadcast statements by inhabitants of Kismayo criticising the militias and had referred to the disturbances in the city, the third largest in Somalia, since their arrival. Many of Kismayo’s inhabitants have criticised the militias’ high-profile presence, the restrictions they have imposed, their replacement of the Somali flag and the fact that fired on protesters, killing a 13-year-old child.

Encouraging developments in Hrant Dink murder trial

first_img Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit to go further Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders hails the signs of modest progress that were seen at the latest hearing in the trial of 19 people charged with the murder of Turkish-Armenian newspaper editor Hrant Dink, who was gunned down outside his office in Istanbul in January 2007. Prosecutors announced at the hearing, held on 7 February, that a preliminary investigation has been launched into some 30 senior members of the Istanbul and Trabzon police and the intelligence services in connection with Dink’s murder. Trabzon is the northeastern city where most of the defendants are from.Like the European Union representatives and observers from the Paris and Brussels bar associations who attended the hearing, the 16th since the start of the trial, Reporters Without Borders will monitor the coming hearings closely in the hope that all those involved in the murder will finally be brought to trial.“We hope that this first step will be followed by further progress,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This case has been dragging on for four years. This trial will only have a positive outcome if the political obstacles are lifted and all the accomplices of the murderers are tried, regardless of the positions they hold.”Despite the interior minister’s denials, one of the Dink family’s lawyers confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that those who are to be investigated include former Istanbul governor Muammer Güler, former Istanbul police chief Celalettin Cerrah, former Istanbul police intelligence chief Ahmet Ilhan Güler and former Trabzon police chief Ramazan Akyürek.It is nonetheless regrettable that the court again refused to combine the Istanbul case with a parallel case in Trabzon in which Col. Ali Öz, the head of the Trabzon gendarmerie, is accused of negligence for failing to act on prior information that there was a plot to kill Dink.Interior minister Besir Atalay insisted yesterday that his subordinates were not being investigated. “There is a complaint but no investigation is being conducted way for the time being,” His denial showed that the required political will is still lacking in keys areas of the government.On 14 September 2010, the European Court of Human Rights found Turkey guilty of violating the right to life, the right to freedom of expression and the right to effective legal recourse in connection with the Dink murder. The ruling was upheld on 14 December after the Turkish government – in another very positive sign – decided not to appeal.In yet another positive development, an Istanbul administrative court recently ordered the interior ministry to pay damages to Dink’s two brothers for “serious deficiencies in their duties” on the part of the police.As a result of the European Court of Human Rights ruling, the Dink family’s lawyers filed a new request with the Istanbul prosecutor’s office on 17 January for the prosecution of all the officials who failed to take appropriate measures in response to prior information about the Dink murder plot. In a petition that was passed to the court, they also called for all of the failures identified by the European Court to be taken into account in the trial and for responsibility to be apportioned, as required by the ruling.As well as observers from the Paris and Brussels bar associations, the 7 February hearing was also watched by Hélène Flautre, co-president of the EU-Turkey mixed parliamentary commission, Ali Yurttagül, an adviser to the Greens group in the European Parliament, and Turkey-EU delegation political adviser Sema Kiliçer.Reporters Without Borders was one of the signatories of a letter calling for justice in the Dink case that was drafted by members of the Paris and Brussels bar associations and was published in the French daily Le Monde on 20 January.The court is meanwhile still waiting for the Scientific Research Institute (TÜBITAK) to say whether it is technically possible to restore a bank security camera’s recording of the shooting that was deliberately erased.Summonses were issued yesterday for 10 people who are to give evidence as witnesses of the murder. The prosecutor’s office also issued a warning that police officials who had failed in their duty to carry out investigations would be prosecuted. The court also decided that two of the leading defendants, Erhan Tuncel and Yasin Hayal, will remain in detention.The next hearing is due to be held on 28 March.Meanwhile, the trial of Ogün Samast, the alleged gunman, is due to begin before an Istanbul court for minors on 28 February. Samast’s case was transferred to this court on 25 October 2010 on the grounds that he was 17 at the time of the shooting.

Contemporary Artists Consider and Create Landscape in Pasadena Museum of California Art Exhibition

Required fields are marked * Lloyd Hamrol, Study for Overflow, 2015. Industrial felt. Courtesy of the Artist; Joan Perlman, Untitled [detail], 2015. Gouache on Yupo, 9 x 12 inches. Courtesy of the ArtistThe Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) is proud to present Lloyd Hamrol/Joan Perlman: “a sky in the palm of a hand.” On view in the PMCA’s Back Gallery, the exhibition pairs Lloyd Hamrol’s site-specific, industrial felt sculptures and Joan Perlman’s abstract paintings and prints, creating an immersive, multimedia environment that provides a platform to consider the related ideas and sharp distinctions between two artists’ investigations of materials, processes, impermanence, and landscape.Though Hamrol and Perlman have an ongoing, collegial dialogue, the two Los Angeles-based artists have never exhibited together. “A sky in the palm of a hand,” the title of which is taken from W.S. Merwin’s poem “No Shadow” and alludes to the conundrum of reconciling intimacy and distance as well as the ephemerality of observable moments and entities, brings together new, large-scale works by both artists.With over thirty site-specific public works throughout the United States, including installations at Caltech, Staples Center, and University of Iowa, Hamrol remains tied to the Earth art movement that has paralleled his career. The biomorphic works created specifically for this exhibition form a bridge between Hamrol’s public works and his small-scale sculptures. They proceed from the artist’s ten-year experimentation with industrial felt as a sculpture medium. Integrating the directness of drawing with dimensional form-building, his sculptures are draped, rather than secured or pinned, allowing for mutability. During the course of the exhibition, the artist will reconfigure one of the floor-based pieces, Overflow, at regular intervals. Both works flow with gravity and the weight of the felt, although the other piece, Cascade, ascends a corner wall of the gallery, its verticality inhabiting the wall space of Perlman’s abstracted landscapes.Like Hamrol, Perlman embraces landscape as source and subject and examines the complex relationship between culture and nature. Her approximately ten monoprints and six expansive acrylic paintings also unfold intuitively, a process inspired by the primary energy and evolution of geological forces and fostered by a two-decade engagement with the landscape of the far North. Working from close-up sections of her own and others’ aerial photographs and video of Iceland’s glacial meltwaters and vast terrains, Perlman explores the mutating relationship of land, water, ice, and gravity in a changing climate. The resulting expanses of space, light, and color are void of a sense of scale and compel the viewer to observe her multi-layered artworks as one would—or should—their natural counterparts, taking time to create a sense of familiarity and place out of the unknown.Though crafted in separate environments and through independent processes, the two- and three-dimensional works in “a sky in the palm of a hand” coalesce and create a landscape of their own, one that allows audiences to explore and discover, as both artists do in natural environments and through experimental processes, self-examination, and continued conversation. The works exist between captured moment and disintegration, reminding viewers of the imperative to look closely and observe fleeting space and time in order to discover what lies before us and inside us.Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA), 490 East Union Street, Pasadena, (626) 568-3665 or visit pmcaonline.org.

The Court informed the Counsels that under no circumstances should a situation arise when the last date of filling of forms goes.  Though the ASG sought for time till Febraury first week, the bench said that he should get instructions soon. Accordingly, the Bench posted the case titled “Rachna Singh v Union of India” to January 22 to await the decision of the Centre and UPSC.Bench: It shouldn’t happen that the last date of filling forms goes by. By next Friday, you should have the instructions. Start preparing, Mr. Rohatgi. #UPSC #UPSCPreparationOnline #Upscmains #SupremeCourt— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) January 11, 2021 In the previous hearing on 18th December, 2020, Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta, had submitted that the Centre was not taking an “adversarial stand” with respect to the plea for extra chance and that a decision in that regard was likely within three or four weeks. The rules might need amendment for granting extra chance, he added.On September 30, the Supreme Court had directed the Central Government and the Union Public Service Commission to consider granting an extra chance to candidates who otherwise have their last attempt in 2020, with corresponding extension of the upper age-limit.That direction was given by a bench led by Justice Khanwilkar in the case Vasireddy Govardhana Sai Prakash v UPSC while rejecting the petitioners’ plea to postpone the UPSC exams scheduled in October 2020 in view of the COVID19 pandemic.The Court directed the authorities to take a decision in that regard “expeditiously”.The relevant observations in the Court order are as follows :”The fourth point raised before us is that some of the candidates may be giving last attempt and also likely to become age-barred for the next examination, and if such candidates are unable to appear in the examination due to Covid-19 pandemic situation, it would cause great prejudice to them .In this regard, we have impressed upon Mr. S.V.Raju, learned Additional Solicitor General appearing for the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Ministry ofHealth and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to explore the possibility of providing one more attempt to such candidates with corresponding extension of age limit. He has agreed to convey the sentiments of the Court to all concerned and to take a formal decision thereon expeditiously”On October 26, the Department of Personnel and Training informed the Supreme Court that the issue regarding grant of extra attempt to last chance candidates was under the consideration of the authorities.Based on that submission, a bench led by Justice AM Khanwilkar disposed of another petition(Abhishek Anand Sinha v Union of India) observing that it was not appropriate for the Court to pass orders when the matter was under the consideration of the concerned authorities.”The issue raised in this Writ Petition is under consideration of the appropriate authority and in light of the observations made by this Court in order dated 30.09.2020 in Writ Petition(C) No. 1012 of 2020, needful is being done in the matter. As a result, it may not be appropriate to precipitate the matter further. We leave it to the competent authorities to assuage the grievance of the petitioners,as brought before this Court in the present Writ Petition appropriately”, the bench observed in the order.The present petition is filed as a sequel to the above proceedings seeking compensatory extra chance for civil service candidates.

Fugitive arrested in credit card scam targeting crafts chain

first_imgCAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — A California man charged in a widespread credit card scam involving retailer Michaels is back in New Jersey after several years on the run. The U.S. attorney’s office says Jose Salazar fled to Mexico after he was indicted in 2015. Salazar and others were accused of installing bogus point-of-sale terminals at about 80 of the arts and crafts stores in 19 states in 2011. The group allegedly stole about 94,000 debit and credit card numbers and used them to illegally withdraw cash. Salazar was arrested in Mexico City last September and made his initial court appearance in Camden by videoconference on Thursday.
