Six Nations: Five things we learnt about Wales

first_img Battle to standstill: Nothing could separate Wales and Ireland Rob Jenkins is a superb player. This is not a typo.Many were surprised that Rob Evans was selected ahead of Gethin Jenkins for the Ireland game. Despite a very good past 12 months at the Scarlets, it seemed that the seniority of Jenkins would command the number one shirt in this year’s opening Six Nation’s fixture. However, Evans was immaculate. Immaculate to the point where Rob Evans became Gethin Jenkins. Warburton and Tipuric didn’t quite work.Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric are hugely impressive opensides – yet very different. Their selection alongside each other seems as logical as Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. However, the practical realties, against Ireland, were very different. Warburton, at blindside, meant that he was roughly five to six yards further away from every breakdown situation than he would have been at seven. Five to six yards may not seem like a lot, but in terms of elite open-side play it equates to roughly one second.Nullified: Sam Warburton effectiveness was blunted with the No 6 jersey on his backA second in which Warburton isn’t able to set his feet wide, lower his back, drop his shoulders and clamp onto the ball like a three-year-old on an Easter egg. Tipuric is also a hugely effective openside and his link play, speed and ability to penetrate the wider channels is hugely desirable – his performance, particularly late in the game, was sensational. But Wales need Warburton’s turnovers more than Tipuric’s ability to break in the thirteen channel. To have both would be the perfect situation, but Warburton remains the priority.Well played Rhys Priestland The most ‘drawy’ draw, in the history of draws.Ireland 16 – Wales 16. You would think that those numbers alone would adequately define a draw. 16 – 16 would seem a sufficient indicator of equality of performance, particularly in a game, such as rugby, where the largely ‘odd’ numbered scoring makes a draw highly improbable. But the parity between Ireland and Wales, on Sunday, extended way beyond the scoreboard and was buried deep within both teams’ key performance indicators. Wales and Ireland scored a try each, a conversion each and three penalties each. Nothing too statistically surprising there.Nobody likes a draw: both sides look dejected at the final whistleYet, both Ireland and Wales also had a 100% scrum completion and an 89% lineout completion. They also both had impressive tackle completions separated by just 1%. Both teams also won 98% of their rucks. It was as if a rugby egg was produced in a fallopian tube, when the teams were announced mid-week, then fertilized at 3pm on Sunday afternoon and the identical twins were born 80 minutes later. For what it’s worth, I enjoyed the birth.Jamie Roberts’ nuclear defence.Jeremy Corbyn’s talk of the UK reducing its nuclear Trident programme needn’t be a concern. A potential replacement could simply be the cloning of Jamie Roberts, a thousand times, which would deliver largely the same impact. His defensive effort against Ireland was insane. 21 tackles at inside centre is weapons grade defending. It was as fine a defensive display as I have seen from a 12.The clamp: Jamie Roberts put in a titanic defensive display against IrelandMake no mistake, these weren’t run of the mill leg tackles – these were tackles that made Robbie Henshaw and Jared Payne feel like they had strolled into a Polar Bear enclosure in a neglected Ukrainian Zoo. Perhaps the greatest compliment to Roberts’ tackling is that he outshone Taulupe Faletau – who also made 21 hits. But world-class backrow forwards are expected to reach those numbers – centres aren’t. Some may point to Wales not making a single clean break against Ireland but until Roberts is told to play otherwise, he is doing his job. Awesomely. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Heir to the throne: Rob Evans did a passable impression of Gethin Jenkins in some areasThey are very similar players. Very mobile, good skillsets and an ability to operate at the breakdown like a fourth backrow forward. Gethin Jenkins still has a lot to offer Wales during this Six Nations and the three test tour to New Zealand, but so does Rob Evans. A 60/ 20 minute playing between either looks very promising for Wales during the next six months. Well played Rob Jenkins, I mean Rob Evans. Sides could not be separated, Jamie Roberts’ iron-clad shield, work-to-do with the Warburton-Tipuric experiment and Rob Evans’ performance are all dissected Rhys Priestland had an impressive game against Ireland. The fact that he had a 100% goal kicking rate, a part of his game with which he has struggled historically, was particularly pleasing. But above all Priestland deserves praise mostly for playing so well in amidst a Welsh rugby public that simply doesn’t appreciate his quality, nor contribution.Assured performance: Rhys Priestland let no one down with his kickingIt is difficult enough playing test rugby when you have the support of your country, to do so amongst sneering comments must be a nightmare. Priestland has had a good season and has been a stabilising force at Bath – where stabilising forces are in short supply. Whether at 10, 12 or 15 Priestland hasn’t put a foot wrong for Bath. Barring a key drop goal, he did the same for Wales against Ireland and it should be recognised. Well played Rhys Priestland.last_img read more

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Curate Diocese of Nebraska Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby preaches Sept. 23 at Trinity Church Wall Street in this image from the congregation’s video of the sermon.[Episcopal News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby spoke of the vision, wisdom and light that the Gospel and followers of Jesus can bring to “a world of puzzlement and confusion” in sermons during recent stops on a trip to the United States.Welby, head of the Anglican Communion, was in Dallas last week to participate in a vocational conference, and he preached Sept. 23 at Trinity Church Wall Street in New York with a message to spread the wisdom of the Gospel to the world.“The reality of Jesus is seen in a holy people of prayer, who desire God from the bottom of their hearts,” Welby said at Trinity Wall Street.“The search for God-centered wisdom from above, the holy understanding of what to do now, begins with our identity, which is found truthfully in Christ alone,” Welby said. “That will only happen when we are outward-looking.”He praised Trinity Wall Street for its outward focus in seeking to serve others, and he emphasized the importance of practicing simplicity and heeding God’s wisdom from above.“Christ called his disciples to ‘go,’ … but to go we must listen,” he said.The sermon drew on a range of allusions, from the threat of climate change to the example of a Catholic archbishop who spent time in captivity during the Vietnam War. The text of the sermon is here; a video is here.His earlier appearance in Dallas kicked off Sept. 20 with a joint event with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry at Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church. Welby and Curry spoke about love and reconciliation in today’s world in a discussion sponsored by the American Friends of the Anglican Centre in Rome.That event was followed later in the day by Welby’s appearance at RADVO, which stands for Radical Vocation, a three-day conference on discerning the call to priesthood. It was presented by Communion Partners, a group of Episcopal and Anglican traditionalists.

‘No good cops in a racist system’

first_imgPhoto Credit: Carmen PaulFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this By Anneliese BienkoBuffalo, N.Y.Buffalo’s largest anti-police demonstration so far this year was held on April 16th. The action, called by Workers World Party, drew activists from across the left to demand police abolition and stand in solidarity with Minneapolis in the wake of Daunte Wright’s murder. Speakers addressed the police brutality and violence that has wreaked havoc for Black and Brown communities across the U.S. A strong anti-capitalist message was pushed, highlighting how the police exist to protect property, not people. Protesters discussed how, comparable to many cities across the country, Buffalo police are 69.3% white while policing a 47% white city, and most of these officers reside in neighboring suburbs, not the communities they occupy. People shouted “abolish the police” and “no good cops in a racist system,” letting the public know that it is past time for reforms, and the whole system needs to be dismantled. The group marched down Niagara Street through a predominantly working-class neighborhood with many community mental health centers and substance use services. This is important because those with mental illnesses make up a quarter of the people killed by police since 2015. In Buffalo in September 2020 Willie Henley, a man struggling with mental illness, was shot during a mental health crisis call and was charged with a felony for trying to defend himself with a bat as police surrounded him. These stories are repeated across the country. Buffalo is looking to hold more demonstrations like this, demanding abolition and fighting against all forms of police violence. last_img read more

Ole Miss students suspended from frat after posing with guns at Emmett Till memorial sign

first_imgsshepard/iStock(OXFORD, Miss.) — Three college students were suspended from their fraternity after posing with guns in front of a memorial for Emmett Till.The students haven’t been suspended from their school, however, as the school determined that it wasn’t a violation of school policy.“While the image is offensive, it did not present a violation of university code of conduct. It occurred off campus and was not part of a university-affiliated event,” University of Mississippi spokesperson Rod Guajardo said in a statement.The three white students are pictured posing with guns at a sign dedicated to Till, a 14-year-old African American boy who was kidnapped, beaten and tortured before being shot in 1955, all allegedly in connection to an encounter with a white woman.One of the three male students seen in the photos allegedly posted the photo to his Instagram account in March.The school was notified through their Bias Incident Response Team, which then referred it to the University Police Department, who reported the photo to the FBI.The FBI “reported back to UPD that it declined to investigate further because the photo did not pose a specific threat,” Guajardo said in the statement.The three students are members of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity, and the group’s spokesperson Jesse Lyons confirmed to ABC News that the students were suspended.“The making of the photo was unrelated to any event or activity of our chapter,” Lyons said in a statement provided to ABC.“The photo is inappropriate, insensitive, and unacceptable. It does not represent our chapter. We have and will continue to be in communication with our national organization and the University,” Lyons said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Circulation and water masses beneath the northern Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica

first_imgWe present oceanographic data from beneath the northern Ronne Ice Shelf. The data were collected during the austral summer of 2002–2003 from four sites located near the ice front in the Ronne Depression. They consist of conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) profiles and time series from moored instruments that vary in length from 9 to 20 weeks. A strong, tidally modulated inflow of relatively fresh water was found at the eastern margin of the Ronne Depression. This low-density inflow powers high basal melt rates that are responsible for a substantially thinned area of ice shelf. A northward flow of Ice Shelf Water along the western margin of the depression (the Antarctic Peninsula coast) was inferred from the CTD data. From the new CTD and current meter data, and from published results from cruises along the ice front, we suggest that the flows at the margins of the Ronne Depression establish east-west density gradients that drive an anticyclonic circulation within the depression. The barotropic component of the circulation forms a gyre of strength 5 × 105 m3 s−1 and occupies a bowl in the field of water column thickness in the northern portion of the depression. All water masses sampled had temperatures below the surface freezing point and are therefore classified as Ice Shelf Water. The relatively complex nature of the oceanographic regime in the Ronne Depression is overlain by a seasonal variability that is hinted at by the available time series, probably explaining the apparent absence of inflowing HSSW at the time of the measurements.last_img read more

Salt Lake City to host 2023 NBA All-Star Game

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City will host the 2023 NBA All-Star Game.Commissioner Adam Silver announced the selection Wednesday. The game will be played Sunday, Feb. 19, 2023 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. It will be the 30th anniversary of Utah’s only other All-Star Game.Silver said Salt Lake City’s track record of hosting major sporting events, such as the 2002 Winter Olympics, and recent arena upgrades swayed the NBA into selecting the city.“Big-time sports and big-time events are part of the DNA of this city,” Silver said.Salt Lake City previously hosted the NBA All-Star Game at the Delta Center in 1993, when the Western Conference beat the Eastern Conference 135-132 in overtime. Utah Jazz Hall of Famers Karl Malone and John Stockton became the first teammates to share the All-Star MVP award. Malone led the West with 28 points, and Stockton finished with nine points and 15 assists.“It was an electric and thrilling experience and one that I will always remember,” Jazz owner Gail Miller said. “Today, we are honored to welcome the NBA and the all-star game back to Salt Lake City.”The 2020 All-Star Game is set for Chicago, followed by Indianapolis in 2021 and Cleveland in 2022.
