Classic Encounter – Springboks vs All Blacks 2000

first_imgFriday Jul 31, 2009 Classic Encounter – Springboks vs All Blacks 2000 A few weeks after the Test of the Century between the All Blacks and Australia, Ellis Park in Johannesburg played host to a match that was right up there with the best in terms of entertainment, action, and emotionally charged Test matches. It was a thrilling encounter between the Springboks and the All Blacks which featured ten tries in total, with eight being scored before the break. South Africa had been struggling, with coach Nick Mallet under fire following four successive defeats. The players were also under pressure, but they duly silenced their critics as they took the game to the mighty ABs and prevailed. They ran them ragged scoring five tries in 30 minutes before New Zealand fought back to close the twenty point deficit, and even take the lead at 37-36 following a Andrew Mehrtens penalty. Robbie Fleck, in for the injured De Wet Barry, was lethal on the day as he scored two tries and troubled the opposition midfield whenever he had ball in hand. The brilliant Christian Cullen scored his sixth Tri Nations try of the year and his 40th Test try in total. He scored again later, as did Tana Umaga who looked threatening whenever he had ball in hand. The Springboks withheld the late onslaught though with some superb defensive work. Late in the game they camped in the New Zealand half before scrumhalf Werner Swanepoel picked up his second try as they hung on for the memorable 46-40 win.The video is down.

Crusaid launches first legacy campaign for several years

first_img Crusaid, the national charity and independent grant maker for HIV and AIDS, has launched a campaign to convince supporters and donors to leave a legacy to the charity in their will.The push is Crusaid’s first concerted legacy campaign for a number of years, and will build on the successful use of funds derived from recent legacies.Alison Heyes, Head of Fundraising and Events at Crusaid commented: “Legacies have enabled us to maintain the Hardship Fund, which has now helped 1 in 4 people diagnosed with HIV in the UK cope with the often harsh reality of life with the virus. It is precisely that sort of work that we hope to continue and build on through our legacy campaign.” Advertisement Tagged with: Individual giving Crusaid launches first legacy campaign for several years  16 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The campaign will begin with a direct-mail shot to warm supporters and contacts. Comprehensive information outlining how a bequest to Crusaid could be used will be distributed throughout the legal profession to promote awareness of the charity and its work among those who manage and administer legacies. This will be reinforced with advertisements in various legal journals and a dedicated area on the Crusaid Web site which will be redesigned shortly. In February 2004 a special reception hosted by Crusaid Chairman Iain Renwick, will take place where supporters will be told how – unlike many other charities – Crusaid does not use legacy gifts to fund core costs. Donors will be reminded that they can choose how their gift is spent or even re-assign the bequest to an area of personal interest once it is committed.Alison Heyes concluded: “Donors will be able to choose for themselves how their legacy is put to work – they may wish to contribute towards research into a vaccine or cure for HIV/AIDS, support our education and prevention work in the UK or provide our international projects with a sustainable future. Our commitment to guaranteeing that no legacy monies are used on administration ensures that donors who leave bequests to Crusaid are making a real and lasting difference in the fight against HIV and AIDS.” Howard Lake | 16 October 2003 | Newslast_img read more

By Gary Truitt – Oct 30, 2017 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleWeather Keep Indiana Harvest Delayed Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter While most corn has reached maturity, moisture levels in his area are still running in the upper 20% range. Though this is less than ideal, Early said it was not long ago he was worried the crop would not reach maturity before the first frost.  Statewide, the moisture average is 19%, unchanged from the previous week. site. SHARE Home News Feed DuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 10/30/17 With a good deal of the Indiana corn crop still in the field and the weather turning colder, windier, and wetter, more and more plants are being blown down. According to USDA, 41% of the Hoosier corn crop has yet to be harvested. With a change in the weather, Brian Early, with DuPont Pioneer, says lodging is becoming a concern, “The crop has been doing well so far, but, as we move into November, we are beginning to see more problems with stalk integrity.”  He added, with good yields comes the likelihood that there may be more lodging, “You sort of have gravity working against you.” He urged growers to check their fields and resume harvest on those that look to be in the worst shape.last_img read more

Santos partners with Natural Soda to create jobs and investment

first_imgThe two companies have been working together for more than 12 months on a commercially-viable model that could create a new sodium bicarbonate industry for Narrabri and Australia Santos partners with Natural Soda to create jobs and investment. (Credit: Santos Ltd) In an Australian first, Santos has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Natural Soda to use salt removed from produced water as part of the Narrabri Gas Project.The two companies have been working together for more than 12 months on a commercially-viable model that could create a new sodium bicarbonate industry for Narrabri and Australia, bringing more local jobs to the region. Sodium bicarbonate is commonly known as ‘baking soda’.Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Gallagher said the MOU is a commitment from both Santos and Natural Soda to complete a concept study that will inform a Final Investment Decision to produce sodium bicarbonate in Narrabri.“Australia doesn’t have a bicarbonate industry, so we import it for use in food, pharmaceuticals and a wide range of industrial uses. These are the benefits that would come from the Narrabri Gas Project – new industries, more jobs, business opportunities and regional development,” Mr Gallagher said.“The partnership with Natural Soda demonstrates how our industry continues to evolve and explore new ways of beneficial use for products that previously would have been considered waste.“The water Santos extracts is of no use to farmers because of the salt content, so we treat the water to a very high standard that is suitable for irrigation, stock watering and other purposes. The salt removed from the water is a natural product and, if our concept study is successful, could be converted into valuable sodium bicarbonate.“That’s a win-win. It creates a new industry, more jobs, it’s good for the environment and good for farming.“However, if things don’t work out as we hope, the water will still be able to be used for irrigation and the salt removed from the water will be disposed of in accordance with all waste laws.“As we come out of COVID-19, every new industry and job is more important than ever. The Narrabri Gas Project means more jobs and more investment in New South Wales and lower gas and electricity prices for customers in New South Wales.”Natural Soda produces pure, natural sodium bicarbonate at its facility in the Piceance Basin in Colorado, using energy efficient and environmentally friendly processes. Natural Soda is the second largest producer in North America and its sodium bicarbonate is imported into Australia and around the world for use in a range of commercial products including food, pharmaceuticals, swimming pool chemicals, industrial chemicals and animal feed.Natural Soda President Kirk Daehling sees this as a great opportunity for both companies.“Unlike other producers, Natural Soda has been processing natural sodium bicarbonate-rich brine into finished product for nearly 30 years.  Salt removed from produced water from Santos’ Narrabri Project appears to be very similar to our facilities’ feedstock.  Processing this material into a valuable end-product will be good for industry and good for the environment.  It will also bring an Australian-based source of supply to our customers in the region,” Mr Daehling said.A decision on the Narrabri Gas Project is currently before the New South Wales Independent Planning Commission following the Department of Planning’s assessment which found the project would not adversely affect the region’s significant water resources, is unlikely to result in any significant impacts on the local community or the environment, is in the public interest  and is capable of approval with strict conditions.Santos has committed 100 per cent of Narrabri gas to the domestic market.  The Narrabri Gas Project has the potential to supply enough natural gas to meet up to half of NSW’s natural gas demand where more than one million family homes, ~33,000 businesses and ~300,000 jobs rely on natural gas as a source of energy.

Mayor’s Update: September 22

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,We were fortunate that Hurricane Jose passed by Ocean City without coming too close, and the long-range forecasts predict the same for Hurricane Maria. We’re also very lucky that the Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract to rebuild beaches at the north end of the island later this fall. The work will not take place until after these tropical storms have moved on. That means that any sand lost to some of the rough surf and high tides we’ve experienced will be restored. Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company has a contract to complete work between Seaspray Road and 14th Street. A pre-construction meeting is scheduled for next week, and I will update you on the project timeline after the meeting.Work on the drainage project in the Fourth Ward is going well. As crews continue to replace the aging network of storm pipes, residents should begin to see a noticeable difference in how quickly the streets drain. The addition of pumping stations will only help more. Anybody interested in following the weekly progress of the work can visit www.ocnj.us/projectupdate.Finally, I want to remind you all that the route for the Bike MS: City to Shore Ride tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 23) will move to the Route 52 causeway this year. I still believe that the traditional route using the Ocean City-Longport Bridge is by far the safest and least disruptive way to bring so many cyclists into town, but I do understand the concerns for public safety shared by other municipalities along the route, and I do remain fully supportive of the charity ride and its important mission in supporting MS research.The riders will come into town on the Ninth Street Bridge and use Bay Avenue to Fifth Street to reach the traditional finish line at the boardwalk parking lot at end of Fifth Street. One inbound lane of the Route 52 causeway will be closed. Other detours will be at 10th Street and Bay Avenue (for northbound traffic), 8th Street and Bay Avenue (southbound), 4th Street and Ocean Avenue (southbound), 6th Street and Ocean Avenue (northbound), 4th Street and Atlantic Avenue (southbound) and 7th Street and Atlantic Avenue (northbound). The eastbound lane of Sixth Street will be closed at Atlantic Avenue. Fifth Street will be closed from Ocean Avenue to the boardwalk. The detours will be in effect starting at 9:30 a.m.Ocean City also will be host to the OCNJ Half Marathon on Sunday, and the Ocean City-Longport Bridge will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (if not earlier) to accommodate a field of more than 1,000 runners.I thank you in advance for your patience during these events. If possible, plan alternative routes to avoid delays and to help provide a safe route for these event participants.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorlast_img read more
