Donncha O’Callaghan talks about the excitement of representing the Barbarians

first_imgSunday Jun 1, 2014 Donncha O’Callaghan talks about the excitement of representing the Barbarians This afternoon England host the Barbarians for what promises to be a festival of running rugby with plenty of talent on show, and a few older players who finally have the chance to represent the famous club. Donncha O’Callaghan is one such player.He told Nick Heath how he feels about the Barbarians, and how as kids he and his brothers wore out the section of a videotape showing the 1973 Baa Baas try vs New Zealand.“I feel honoured to be completely honest with you, it’s the only way to describe it. I’ll be honest with you, dream come true.. it’s a boyhood dream come true,” he said. “One of the special ones that you don’t get to do a whole lot and I’m excited about it and nervous and you get all the emotions of it.There’s a wonderful moment about two minutes into the video where the Munster lock opens up on his ambitions of leaving his own special mark on the game, following in the footsteps of the greats that wore the famous jersey before him.In an age where professionalism takes over most of the time, it’s really nice to see someone like O’Callaghan speaking about what the team, and the fantastic tradition, represents.Barbarians team:JM Hernandez, J Rokocoko, R Ranger, B Stanley, H Gear, B James, J Cowan, S Taumalolo, T Paulo, D Kubriashvili, D O’Callaghan, J Kruger, JM Leguizamon, A Lapandry, M Gorgodze.

The Myth of Local Food

first_img Minor Changes in June WASDE Report Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Previous articleUSDA Accepting Applications for Biofuels Infrastructure FundingNext articleAnother Weekend of Heavy Rain Damages Indiana Crops Gary Truitt RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 15, 2015 Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribe Going local is the new food craze. Restaurants are listing where they source their food, retailers are setting up sections of locally produced products, and some food zealots are pushing the all local diet. Book stores are filled with books on eating local, and food magazines feature cover stories that extol the virtues of eating local.  The problem is much of the information about, perceptions of, and rationale for eating local is a hoax.The justification for eating local falls into several categories: it is good for the local economy, it is good the environment, it is better for your health, or it makes you’re a morally superior individual. While there is nothing wrong with eating local, if you are doing so for any of the above reasons, you are being duped.Let’s stop here and discuss what we mean by local. There is no common agreement on what constitutes local food. A recent survey by the Indiana State Department of Agriculture indicates that for most consumers local is within 50 miles. About 20% of those surveyed said within 100 miles.  Twenty-five percent of those surveyed said being locally produced would not be enough for them to change their buying decision.  Over 40% said they would not likely pay more for food items produced locally.  In short, the survey showed that there is a certain group of shoppers who will drive further and pay more for locally produced food — but this group is not the majority of consumers.About 25% of consumers in the ISDA study said they shopped at farmers’ markets. But shopping at a farmers’ market is no guarantee of local origin.  While many products may come from just down the road, it is also common for vendors to buy from other farmers hundreds or thousands of miles away. Some markets have restrictions on this practice, but not all do. Because a farmer adds variety to his market offerings by selling products grown in another state does that somehow make that product less appealing? Currently, Indiana is not able to even supply the demands of most farmers’ markets. Only 2.4% of Hoosier farms grow vegetables; and only 1.0% grow fruits, berries, and tree nuts. Only 63,000 acres in the state are used for growing specialty crops.  This is why 90% of the food consumed in Indiana comes from outside of the state.The environmental magazine Grist recently published an article that claimed, “90 percent of our diets could be local — but only if we nix Big Ag.” This audacious and totally ridiculous claim was based on a study by 2 researchers at the University of California, Merced. Their conclusion was that as much as 90 percent of our diets could come from locally grown food — if we completely revolutionize our entire farm system. They admitted their study was theoretical, not practical, and would require some substantial changes in the US diet. Their argument, however, reveals a key flaw in the local food movement: big is bad.  What locavores fail to realize is that, if more and more people get more and more of their food from local sources, the local food movement will have to move up to an industrial scale.If we are going to stop shipping milk across the country, then we had better start building dairy processing plants in every large city. In addition, slaughter houses will have to start popping up all over the place in order to supply meat from local farms to local stores. Local zoning boards will have to set aside large sections of land to locate the food processing and distribution centers that would be needed to serve an area of only a few hundred square miles. Ironically, the purpose of the ISDA study mentioned above was to evaluate the feasibility of Food Hubs, a collection of small producers to sell to large food retailers or food co-ops.  Some private entrepreneurs are already moving in this direction using the “big ag” model to put locally produced food on store shelves and in freezer cases.If the local food movement really wants to survive and thrive, it needs to take some lessons from the side of agriculture it is so quick to disparage. Locally grown food products are fresher, taste better, and are more appealing to consumers — but only if they are price competitive and available where most people already shop. If the movement wants to become more than just a niche market, it needs to drop the environmental demagoguery and the moral guilt trip that characterizes most advocates of local food.  We cannot feed the nation with Saturday morning farmers’ markets; but, with well-developed local food systems, we can provide an opportunity for individual farmers to become involved in the food business and, at the same time, give consumers a taste of fresh local products. The local food movement’s assertion that we can turn back time and return to the days when most of our food came from just down the road is a bogus fallacy.  Their assertion that food that comes from across the country or across the world is somehow evil is pure propaganda.So visit a farmers’ market, join a CSA, stop at a farm stand, and enjoy but keep in mind not all of it may be local. But don’t feel guilty if you grab a bunch of bananas from Honduras or some grapes from Chile.

No. 4 Ohio State presents challenges for No. 15 TCU

first_imgLinkedin Snow temporarily stepping down as honors dean Linkedin TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello ReddIt printThe No. 15 Horned Frogs are matched up with one of college football’s perennial powerhouses as the No. 4 Buckeyes present a daunting challenge on both sides of the ball.Last week Ohio State trounced Rutgers 52-3 as the Buckeyes recorded 579 yards while allowing just 134.“Ohio State is a really good football team,” said head coach Gary Patterson. “With the passing game and who they have up front, maybe one of the better ones I’ve seen. We have a lot of work to do.”Buckeye quarterback, sophomore Dwayne Haskins already has Heisman buzz with two impressive performances. He has thrown for 546 yards and nine touchdowns on 42-53 passing.Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins plays against Rutgers during an NCAA college football game Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. (AP Photo/Jay LaPrete)“He can for sure throw, but he can definitely move too,” said TCU safety Niko Small. “With the film I’ve watched, that guy can definitely move around when he wants too. He makes smart decisions, and he doesn’t want his body to get too banged up because he knows he’s a good player. He can do it all.”The Buckeyes rushing attack averages 300 yards per game, 12th in the nation. Junior running back Mike Weber has led the way with 247 yards and three touchdowns.Overall, Ohio State boasts the second-best offense in the nation, averaging 650 yards per game and 64.5 points per game.“It’s a testament to how good that program is and how good their coaching is,” Small said. “It’s another test and a piece of adversity for us to focus on.”Small said he anticipates the game will be won at the line of scrimmage and said the defensive front will have a huge impact on the outcome of the game.“Those dudes make it so much easier for us,” Small said. “When they eat, we eat, and it’s not the other way around. When they get pressure on the run game or the quarterback, they just toss up balls for us.”Headlined by defensive end Ben Banogu and defensive tackle Corey Bethley, TCU’s defense has allowed just 10 points this season while recording 12.5 tackles for loss. The defense has proven themselves against elite offenses in the past, as six of their 14 games last season were against top-20 offenses.Defensive end L.J. Collier will return to the lineup this weekend, but that does not confirm defensive end Ty Summers’ return to linebacker.“Ty will play both,” said Patterson. “He’s had two sacks in two ball games. One of the easiest ways for them to not throw the ball is a good pass rush.”TCU’s defense will be challenged by Ohio State’s dynamic offense. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.On the other side of the ball, TCU’s young offensive line will be tested against the nation’s No. 17 defense, highlighted by junior defensive end Nick Bosa.Bose leads the team with nine tackles and five tackles for loss through the first two weeks. He has achieved one sack in five consecutive contests.“This is a big test,” said Patterson. “Three out of their four defensive linemen are first-round choices. Bosa’s playing at the highest level he’s played at. We have some work to do.”Ohio State has two other linemen who have achieved multiple sacks so far, defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones and defensive end Chase Young.“The defensive line is obviously good we know that, but at the same time we’re just playing football,” said center Kellton Hollins. Ohio State defensive lineman Nick Bosa plays against Rutgers during an NCAA college football game Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. (AP Photo/Jay LaPrete)While the Buckeyes will be TCU’s toughest challenge this season, Patterson sees no difference between them and the Wisconsin team they faced in the 2011 Rose Bowl. The Badgers were averaging 50 points per game heading into the Rose Bowl seven years ago.The Buckeyes and the Horned Frogs will hit the gridiron 7 p.m. Saturday evening on national television in Arlington, Texas. Having played in AT&T Stadium a season ago, the Horned Frogs are comfortable under the bright lights of Jerry World.“It’s exciting,” said Hollins. “It’s a childhood dream I get to live out. I’ve always watched college football growing up. I’ve dreamed of being on the TV one day, and now I’m living that out.” Robbie Vaglio Robbie Vaglio TCU wants ex-professor’s discrimination suit dismissed Robbie Vaglio I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

It’s more than just a bunch of kids running around trying to score.While most basketball camps “kind of throw the ball out there and try to make money and there’s not a lot of teaching going on,” says Coach (“Doc”) Oliver Eslinger, head basketball coach of Caltech and the man behind Doc’s Youth Basketball Academy, “I want ours to be all about teaching, teaching how to play the game the right way, teaching strong fundamentals and skills and using a lot of the drills we do.”By teaching the fundamentals, students of Doc’s camp will learn not just the basics of the sport, but also the rules, and intangibles that go along with it.“I want to make ours a balance of interaction and building relationships but also teaching the right way how to play instead of a lot of what we see out there now,” says Eslinger.Other camps usually take the tallest guy and automatically make him a center, while the short ones are turned into guards, but Eslinger’s camp’s philosophy is not about that. It’s all about being versatile.“Our philosophy is we want to teach all the skills to everybody and provide opportunities for versatility, because we’re trying to create complete basketball players,” says Eslinger.Though the camp will be mainly about basketball fundamentals, the psychology behind it is also taught. The mental game is just as important.“How you learn and how you’re able to improve by learning life skills like being able to communicate, being able to look in a coach’s eyes, being able to ask questions, being able to focus. I have a doctorate in sports psychology and that’s where the part of that comes in,” says Eslinger.Registration for the camp will be up to May 6th to ensure enrollment, though Eslinger says “we’re going to keep it open until the beginning.”Start of the Academy will be on June 17th through the 21st, Monday to Friday with a second session from June 24th through the 28th.For more information on Doc’s Youth Basketball Academy, or to register online, visit or call (626) 395-3264.You can also contact Doc via email [email protected] Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Subscribe Business News More Cool Stuff Community News Make a comment First Heatwave Expected Next Week last_img read more

They were able to visit many of the memorials, including the World War II Memorial, by exercising their 1st Amendment Rights.The Washington Times published an article today with many photos of the Barnhart students visiting the WWII Memorial.

This summer could see us all eating out

first_imgNewsBusinessThis summer could see us all eating outBy Staff Reporter – March 12, 2021 348 Twitter EATING out could have a very literal meaning this summer if Limerick Chamber succeeds in persuading the City and Council Council to support its concept of outdoor dining.The Chamber has been in contact with the council about transforming the dining experience in the city and county towns to support local hospitality businesses.Chamber chief executive Dee Ryan said that the reduction in seating available for indoor dining because of Covid restrictions had dramatically impacted on revenue and made trading very difficult.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The council responded to that last year by making some parklets available and running animations for businesses and we are asking that those initiatives be expanded this summer,” she explained.“Even in the best-case scenario, social distancing is going to be part of our summer so it’s essential we help restaurant and cafes bring their business out onto the streets, serve more customers than they would otherwise be able to and stay trading.“One of key things we are discussing with the council is the introduction of a simplified process for expressions of interest for requisitioning parking spaces directly outside of premises for table and chairs.“Parklets are preferable but we’d also like to see a simplified option for businesses with funds being made available for windbreakers and planting to enhance the customer experience and above all, temporary measures being put in to ensure the spaces set aside are safe for use.”Ms Ryan said the council has confirmed that the waiver fee offered last year to businesses who availed of outdoor spaces will also apply in 2021. Traders must still apply to get the licence for outdoor table and chairs but the fees will be waived.“This is very important as it means that the local authority is making the option available and doing so free of charge. I am informed that Council officials are engaging with Failte Ireland to access new funding in support of animation for visitor experience of Limerick.“We have also asked the council to look at greening urban spaces with trees, hedging or flowers so that this year, of all years, Limerick stands out.’Commending the Council on the outdoor lighting along the riverfront, Ms Ryan continued: “It has been a really difficult time for the tourism and hospitality sector, so it is essential we do the maximum possible to support a summer reopening for residents and visitors.“It is going to be an outdoor summer by necessity and the Chamber is committed to supporting the Limerick hospitality sector to make the best of the months ahead,” Ms Ryan concluded.

SB Beverages Private Limited failed to pay its dues, resulting in the auction by Syndicate Bank (Secured Creditor) under SARFAESI Act Whether the liability towards previous electricity dues of the last owner could be mulled on to the respondent. Ratio: Electricity dues, where they are statutory in character under the Electricity Act and as per the terms & conditions of supply, cannot be waived in view of the provisions of the Act itself more specifically u/s 56 of the Electricity Act, 2003 (in pari materia with Section 24 of the Electricity Act, 1910), and cannot partake the character of dues of purely contractual nature. Where, as in cases of the E-auction notice in question, the existence of electricity dues, whether quantified or not, has been specifically mentioned as a liability of the purchaser and the sale is on “AS IS WHERE IS, WHATEVER THERE IS AND WITHOUT RECOURSE BASIS”, there can be no doubt that the liability to pay electricity dues exists on the  respondent Click here to read the judgment2. Pandurang Ganpati Chaugale vs. Vishwasrao Patil Murgud Sahakari Bank Ltd (Delivered by Supreme Court on 05.05.2020) Brief facts: The court framed the following questions Whether co­operative banks both at the State level and multi­State level are ‘banks’ for applicability of the SARFAESI Act? Whether provisions of Section 2(c) (iva) of the SARFAESI Act on account of inclusion of multi­-state co­operative banks and notification dated 28.1.2003 notifying cooperative banks in the State are ultra vires Ratio The co­operative banks under the State legislation and multi­-state co­operative banks are ‘banks’ under section 2(1)(c) of SARFAESI. The recovery is an essential part of banking; as such, the recovery procedure prescribed under section 13 of the SARFAESI Act, is applicable. The Parliament has legislative competence under Entry 45 of List I of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India to provide additional procedures for recovery under section 13 of the SARFAESI with respect to co­ operative banks. The provisions of Section 2(1)(c)(iva), of SARFAESI, adding ‘a multi­-state co­operative bank’ is not ultra vires.Coopearative banks have to act under Banking Regulation Act with respect to banking business.Click here to read the judgment 3.

The Petitioner after dismissal of the application before the DRT filed the impugned complaint which appears to be an intimidatory tactic and an afterthought which was an abuse of the process of law. Entertaining the complaint and allowing the investigation to continue, would amount to permitting the jurisdictional police to redo the process which would be in the nature of reviewing the order passed by the Single Judge and the Division Bench in the writ proceedings by the High Court and the orders passed by the competent Court under the SARFAESI Act which was neither desirable nor permissible and the banking system could not be allowed to be held to ransom by such intimidation.

Ratio The provisions of SARFAESI Act and RDB Act (Section 26E of the SARFAESI Act and of Section 31B of the RDB Act) containing provisions commencing with non-obstante clauses and giving specific priority to secured creditors even over the taxes due from the Governments, will prevail over the Kerala Value Added Tax Act, 2003.

Sanjeev Tiwari vs State Of Uttarakhand delivered by Uttarakhand High Court on 05.06.2020  Brief Facts Bank proceeded under SARFAESI.Application filed by borrower u/s 156 (3) of CrPC to open an investigation into alleged possession of the plant without notice.Rejected on the ground that no criminal action can be taken once, SARFAESI proceedings have begun and rejection confirmed in revision.Present Petition u/s 482 CrPC Ratio Matter already reached conclusion in the Writ Petition that the Bank did not lock the premises. The Bank was taking recourse to S. 13 SARFAESI Act for the recovery of outstanding dues. If the measures were wrong and the company was aggrieved definitely, recourse to Section 17 of the SARFAESI Act could have been taken. Criminal prosecution cannot be allowed to be launched in such cases. Appl. u/s156 (3) does not disclose any cognizable offence.
