2019 Rugby World Cup: France 23-21 Argentina

first_img Rugby World Cup Groups Collapse Expand England will have watched on with interest. Which half will better inform their preparation to meat their heavyweight pool rivals?Star manDamien Penaud had a tinge of Dr Jekyll and Monsieur Hyde in this one. In the first half he beat seven defenders, made two ripping line breaks and made big yardage. He got the first try but looked dangerous every time he carried. In the second, he was giving away cynical penalties and scrambling in defence. He had to go off with a quarter of an hour left, for an HIA and that was it.Done just enough: Gael Fickou celebrates (Getty Images)He will ultimately come out with pass marks, but it is telling that in the second half, when Argentina’s pack were very much in the ascendency and the collisions were going the Pumas way, that things dried up for Penaud. His sparky compatriot Dupont suffered a similar reversal of fortunes.On the other side, Petti was monstrous as Argentina came back in the second 40. The whole Pumas pack played their part but the marauding lock was imperious.ReactionPablo Matera: “It was not good enough. (It was) a really bad start from us as a team. It’s not good enough with only one (strong) half.”“France, at the beginning, didn’t do too much but they took their opportunities and they scored points and that’s when they went further ahead with points and it’s difficult to come from behind.”Guilhem Guirado: “I thought the game was finished and we’d lost. I’m very, very proud of my boys and very happy to start the competition with a win.“We never controlled the game in the second half but we are very proud of the first half because we were very clinical. When we play like this we are very dangerous.”Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageThe TeamsFrance: Maxime Medard (Thomas Ramos 60), Damian Penaud (Camille Lopez 72), Gael Fickou, Virimi Vakatawa, Yoann Huget, Romain Ntamack, Antoine Dupont (Maxime Machenaud 72); Jefferson Poirot (Cyril Baille 67), Guilhem Guirado (c) (Camille Chat 46), Rabah Slimani (Demba Bamba 46), Arthur Iturria (Bernard Le Roux 54), Sebastien Vahaamahina, Wenceslas Lauret, Charles Ollivon, Gregory Alldritt (Louis Picamoles 60).Tries: Fickou 17, Dupont 21.

The first match was the opening contest of the tournament and the second fixture was the third-place play-off.Related: Rugby World Cup FixturesIn a nutshellFrance clung on to win in this tense affair. With a mere two-point lead, Emiliano Boffelli had a long-range penalty to win the contest for los Pumas, but while it had the legs it was slightly to the left.It could have been much simpler for les Bleus who galloped into a fine lead in he first half and went in at the break 20-3 up. Yet they let Argentina have the run off things in the second, and it needed a Camille Lopez drop-goal in the last ten to wrest back a narrow lead. But no matter how hard they made things for themselves, they now grasp the advantage in Pool C.The French began playing free-wheeling, offloading, exciting rugby. However, a streetwise Argentina – who no doubt got a rocket from head coach Mario Ledesma – came thundering back with gritty rugby in the second. Lineout mauls and heavy carrying turned the tide.Breakaway: Guido Petti storms away (Getty Images)It transformed into a tense affair, with the dying minutes becoming a contest to see who would blink first. Camille Lopez dropped a goal. Argentina started hoisting up huge kicks in the middle of the park, hoping for mistakes. Ntamack started missing penalty kicks (he had four out of four when he stepped up and hooked one on minute 77).Gael Fickou’s try came from some sublime stepping from Virimi Vakatawa, who almost popped Pablo Matera’s knees with his footwork. Offloads came in. Damien Penaud made slashing runs and his interplay with soft-handed Maxime Medard laid the groundwork for Antoine Dupont’s score.But after the break, Guido Petti was making hefty runs and drove a maul over. He then caught another ball and Julian Montoya drove that one over.It toook a snapshot drop-goal from Lopez to calm the nerves after France surrendered their lead, and the scrap was on.

Episcopal Relief & Development gets grant for ‘groundbreaking’ work

first_imgEpiscopal Relief & Development gets grant for ‘groundbreaking’ work Grand Challenges Explorations funds innovative health, development programs By ENS staffPosted Nov 20, 2013 Rector Washington, DC Rector Tampa, FL Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Martinsville, VA Magi Griffin says: Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Relief & Development’s pilot project in Ghana will give women smallholder farmers the opportunity, though micro-financing, to acquire a donkey, a plough and a cart, as well as improved seeds and fertilizer, through affordable credit. Participants also will receive skills training in donkey care, farm business management and agricultural techniques. Photo: Episcopal Relief & Development[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal Relief & Development announced Nov. 20 that it is a Grand Challenges Explorations grant winner, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.The grant will allow Episcopal Relief & Development, in collaboration with its Ghanaian partner, the Anglican Diocesan Development and Relief Organization (ADDRO), to pursue an innovative global health and development research project, titled “Testing a Financing Solution & Technical Assistance Package to increase Women Smallholder Farmers’ Labor Productivity through Ownership of Donkeys with Ploughs.”“It is a tremendous honor for Episcopal Relief & Development to receive the Grand Challenges Explorations grant from the Gates Foundation,” said Rob Radtke, the agency’s president, in a press release from Episcopal Relief & Development. “Innovations such as the donkey plough can increase farming efficiency, allowing women to increase their harvests and devote the time they save to other endeavors such as building skills and marketing produce. Empowering women economically helps bring all members of a community into fuller participation in the creation of a brighter future for their families.”Radtke told ENS that, for ADDRO, the grant is a “huge feather in their cap.”Receiving the grant, Radtke said, “shows that we’re always trying to be innovative and creative in coming up with solutions to intractable problems.”To receive funding, Episcopal Relief & Development and other Grand Challenges Explorations winners in this most recent round of grants awards demonstrated in a two-page online application a bold idea in one of five critical global heath and development topic areas (Round 11 here) that included agriculture development, development of the next-generation condom and neglected tropical diseases, the press release said.Episcopal Relief & Development’s project will promote an innovative, labor-saving strategy for women smallholder farmers – the donkey plough, according to the release. Most women farmers in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to oxen for farming and are consigned to grueling and time-consuming labor using hand tools, according to the press release. Women’s access has been limited by cost, cultural taboos and the difficulty of managing oxen due to their large size. In the 1990s, a plough was developed for use by a single donkey, which would be more affordable and practical for women, and would save 18 or more days of labor per hectare of land versus using a hand hoe alone. The donkey plough has not been widely popularized to date, however, and cost is a major obstacle.Episcopal Relief & Development and ADDRO will provide women smallholder farmers the opportunity to acquire the necessary equipment, as well as improved seeds and fertilizer, through affordable credit. The project will test two credit options through a revolving loan fund designed to be financially sustainable, and participants also will receive skills training in donkey care, farm business management and agricultural techniques. The loans will cover the cost of a donkey, a plough and a cart, enabling the owners to earn extra income and repay their loans more quickly by renting the donkey set to others for farming and transporting goods.The organization’s programs with ADDRO in Ghana help farmers feed their families through improved agricultural techniques, empower women through micro-finance services and train health volunteers to protect their communities from malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. That sort of “integrated development,” Radtke said, is typical of the sort of work Episcopal Relief & Development tries to support whenever possible.Grand Challenges Explorations funds individuals worldwide to explore ideas that can break the mold in solving persistent global health and development challenges, according to the press release. Episcopal Relief & Development’s project is one of 81 Grand Challenges Explorations Round 11 grants awarded Nov. 20 by the foundation.Grand Challenges Explorations is a $100 million initiative that was launched in 2008. More than over 850 people in more than 50 countries have received grants. The grant program is open to anyone from any discipline and from any organization. Initial grants of $100,000 are awarded two times a year. Successful projects have the opportunity to receive a follow-on grant of up to $1 million.Episcopal Relief & Development is one of two faith-based organizations receiving grants in this round. The other is the Mennonite Economic Development Associates, which proposed another pilot project involving women farmers in Ghana. The challenge both agencies took on is here.The grant, Radtke noted, is “a real vote of confidence in faith-based organizations.”Active in approximately 40 countries, Episcopal Relief & Development works with church and ecumenical partners to mobilize local resources toward alleviating hunger, promoting health, creating economic opportunities and responding to disasters, the release said.

GEEK: WIFI performance within your control

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Facebook GEEK: WIFI performance within your control By admin – January 21, 2018 Pinterest WhatsApp >> Jeff Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. Q: When I got Cox Internet, my laptop kicks me off wireless at exactly 3 minutes. Will search and regain network only to be kicked off every 3 minutes. No technician can solve the problem. Does not happen on any other network.– Jean H.No City Given, Fla.A: There are many things that are required to be working correctly in order for you to have a working Internet connection, Jean. Not all of the parts are under your control, nor are they testable by you. The ones that you can control include the modem, router and any interconnecting cables (yes, even if you’re on Wi-Fi, your network connection ultimately goes through at least one cable before leaving your house). Of course, this also includes the laptop itself, its network interface card, and all the software settings that support their proper operation. Then, outside your responsibility is the provider’s equipment, which consists of some unknown quantity of hubs, routers, cables and other networking hardware, all of which needs to be working properly.A lot of the above can easily be eliminated, simply by analyzing the problem. For example, virtually all of the provider’s hardware outside your house can be checked-off, since the problem is not a loss of the Internet so much as a loss of connection to the router in your house that attaches you to the cable modem. A couple of things you can easily check include Windows’ Power Management settings to be sure you haven’t told it to allow your network connection to go to sleep after 3 minutes. I also suggest you try running with the laptop hard-wired to your network and see if the problem persists. I realize that you said “Does not happen on any other network,” which I took to mean that you’ve taken the laptop elsewhere and used other Wi-Fi without experiencing the drop-outs. Still, you need to narrow down the precise situation in which the problem occurs in order to isolate the problem.There are environmental factors in your home that could affect Wi-Fi performance as well. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands used by Wi-Fi are also typically used by such devices as cordless phones, alarm systems, RF remote controls and so on. Some routers hop from channel to channel to keep the signal clean, and it’s possible that when it lands on a noisy or saturated channel, you lose the signal. There are settings in your router that you can tweak to set the router to one specific channel rather than allowing it to “auto channel.” See your router’s documentation for more on this feature.Beyond that, you have strongly implied that this problem didn’t exist before you switched to Cox as your Internet Provider. I’m sorry, but I cannot accept your over-broad statement that “No technician can solve the problem.” If none of the above suggestions helps, it seems to me that a call to Cox technical support is in order, since you’re currently paying for a severely under-performing service. Don’t take “No” for an answer, and insist that they have a technician investigate the problem. If they can’t or won’t help, it might be time to switch to another provider.This is just a reminder to my readers in the Florida Panhandle that the 12th Annual Computer Tech Expo is right around the corner. Computer Tech 2018 takes place on Saturday, January 27th at the Student Services Center on the campus of Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, Fla. This workshops featured at the event are conducted by local IT experts and/or trainers with many years of experience in their field, so this is a unique opportunity to get trained-up on a variety of cutting-edge topics. This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Carl Lofstrom, the founder of the Tech Expo, and President of the South Walton Computer & Technology Club. Carl will be speaking on the topic “Learning How to Learn It.” Yes, I’ll be there too, for my 10th appearance at the expo. I’ll be hosting a “Meet the Geek” presentation that usually devolves into half tech Q&A and half bad stand-up comedy act. There will also be vendor tables, door prizes and the opportunity to connect with numerous local computer groups. Lunch will be available at the venue for a modest cost. It should be a lot of fun, so come on out and join us! For more information, or to register for your FREE tickets, visit ComputerTechNWF.org. And tell ‘em The Geek sent you!

Chicago mayor says dropped Jussie Smollett charges are making ‘a fool of all of us’

first_imgABC News(CHICAGO) — Still fuming from the decision by prosecutors to drop charges in the “hoax” attack case against Empire actor Jussie Smollett, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel blasted the move Wednesday, saying all the evidence police collected against the TV star should be unsealed. “He’s saying he’s innocent and his words aren’t true,” Emanuel told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America. “They better get their story straight. This is actually making a fool of all of us.” On Tuesday, the Illinois State Attorney’s officer dismissed all 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct against Smollett stemming from what the 36-year-old actor claimed was a racist and homophobic attack on him that police investigators determined was a “hoax.”Emanuel suggests it was unconscionable for prosecutors to dismiss the case after Smollett agreed to forfeit the $10,000 bond he put up and complete “two days” of community service at Operation PUSH, the non-profit Chicago community organization founded by the Rev. Jesse Jackson.“Let’s get to the bottom of this. Let’s find out what happened,” Emanuel said. “Especially [in] a city that embraced not only him as an actor but more importantly the values of being whoever you are, whoever you love, whatever your background is, you have a home here. He took that, turned it around and tried to self-promote himself. And the fact is, he’s walking around with no sense of contrition, no sense of remorse, and the fact is also the state’s attorney is saying he’s actually guilty of this hoax, and he’s walking around saying, ‘No, I’m innocent.’” Cook County First Assistant State Attorney Joe Magats said Tuesday it was his decision alone to dismiss charges against Smollett.Magats took over the case after his boss, Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx, recused herself from the investigation after it surfaced that she had been in touch with Smollett’s family. Magats said he took into consideration Smollett’s lack of a criminal history and that the disorderly conduct charges are “low-level” felonies.In an interview with ABC Chicago station WLS-TV, Magats defended his decision, saying it was “the right disposition in the case.”But Emanuel called Magats’ decision “not on the level.”“He’s an actor, a person of influence. He got special treatment,” he said of Smollett. But one of Smollett’s attorneys, Tina Gladian, said she was shocked to hear Emanuel and Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson “double down” on their accusations against Smollett. “I think if they believed the charges they never would have dismissed the case,” Gladian said on GMA of the state attorney’s office. “I’m saying their actions speak louder than words. They could have proceeded in a variety of ways. We were ready to move forward. We appeared in court and pled not guilty. We were ready to fight the charges and they’re the ones who voluntarily discontinued the matter, so I think that speaks volumes.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
