Who’s in our current World XV?

first_img7. Sam Warburton – Of course Richie McCaw is lurking, but why not reward Warburton for dumfounding the doubters and adding a much-needed memory of Lions success to Martin Johnson’s 1997 vintage? An All Black icon may well steam back to world-beating form, but the Lions skipper bettered Michael Hooper quite comfortably at the breakdown before a hamstring tear ended his series. That is a pretty good pedestal to be sitting on for now.8. Kieran Read – Shunting Luis Picamoles off this shirt required a special performer, so who better than the man keeping custody of the Kiwi captaincy to deploy at the scrum’s base? Expect Toby Faletau to take this mantle in years to come, but for now it is Read – hugely skillful, intelligent and brawny – who can be trusted to career over the gain-line and plenty more. not for featured Top tussle: Leigh Halfpenny and George North went head-to-head with Will Genia on this summer’s Lions tourBy Charlie Morgan AUGUST SEES the return of The Rugby Championship – one hell of a tasty tournament to follow the all-consuming intensity of this summer’s Lions tour. As the wounded Wallabies head into the most heated of round-robins against Argentina, South Africa and trans-Tasman enemies New Zealand, there will no doubt be many musings on the state of the game in respective hemispheres.To whet your appetite, here is the guiltiest indulgence any pundit could ask for – my team to represent this planet, picked on form. I highly doubt you will all agree on personnel. That’s what makes it fun.15. Leigh Halfpenny – Courage, pace and positioning set Halfpenny apart even before you take his phenomenal accuracy from the tee into account. Does not quite possess the mercurial attacking talents of Israel Dagg, Kurtley Beale or even relative rookies Willie le Roux and Stuart Hogg, but makes far less mistakes and still poses problems with slicing darts from deep. Lions exploits already render him close to a shoo-in for IRB Player of the Year.14. Ben Smith – Something of a wildcard given his meagre tally of 15 caps, but deserves to be in this company for fantastic footballing nous. Composed and versatile enough to make right decisions consistently all over the pitch, Smith is also sufficiently tenacious and sharp to take advantage of even a modicum of space. Israel Folau comes close after taking the union scene by storm.Dancing feet: attacking threat Fofana13. Wesley Fofana – Diminutive but infinitely explosive, Fofana adds spark beyond measure. Although more accustomed to the other midfield slot, he is just as capable in a slightly wider channel and would create absolute havoc with heftier runners lingering in the peripheral vision of defenders. Also a proven finisher, as his electric introduction to Auckland’s Eden Park and a Six Nations schooling of several would-be English tacklers showed.12. Jean de Villiers – Flamboyancy and flair can take a back seat. This crash, bash, carry merchant is so good at the fundamentals – and growing better the more miles he clocks up – that an aura of calm surrounds him. No better was this illustrated than last month, when Alesana Tuilagi aimed a brutal clothesline at the Springbok skipper’s face. Rather than fly off the handle, de Villiers politely made a point to referee Pascal Gauzère. A class act.11. George North – Being hailed as this generation’s Jonah Lomu is a stratospheric compliment for anyone on the left wing, but the sheer destruction North can conjure (the incredible Folau back-pack, for example) make him well deserving of that moniker. Steady strike-rate of 14 tries in 34 Test will only improve.10. Dan Carter – Still the boss of the stand-offs despite the Crusader’s Super 15 exit, Carter has a 2014 sabbatical to look forward to. That makes the assignments beforehand – The Rugby Championship and autumn revenge on England – plus unfinished business at the Rugby World Cup upon his return, very important. It seems the hunger will not wane, which is exciting for the rest of us. 9. Will Genia – Fizzing around the fringes to create champagne moments for fun, Genia is perhaps the easiest selection on this teamsheet. Only Samoan Khan Fotuali’i gives any semblance of a challenge, but the Wallaby’s exceptional ability to mobilise his forward pack – normally one lighter than the opposition – sets him apart.1. Alex Corbisiero – There is certainly a reactive slant to this call, especially since Corbisiero would have stayed in Argentina this summer without injuries to Gethin Jenkins and Cian Healy. However, two Test-winning performances for the Lions in Brisbane and Sydney were supreme in all facets – not just monstrous shifts at set-piece. He has now beaten Australia (twice) and New Zealand in last three Test starts.Blond Bok: Strauss in action for South Africa2. Adriaan Strauss – It has not been easy to emerge from the significant shadows of Bismarck du Plessis and John Smit, but this shock-mopped hooker has managed just that. Outstanding leadership shepherded the Cheetahs to the Super 15 finals, adding to an assured 24-cap international career that can even negotiate “accidental” testicle-grabs. Do not be surprised if his reputation rises further in August.3. Adam Jones – A genial, unassuming assassin of the dark arts, Jones swiftly becomes the MVP of any side he represents – and with good reason. Mauls looseheads at will to provide valuable points for his peers. Just ask Ben Alexander.4. Sam Whitelock – Sumptuous handling, fierce physicality and unrivalled work-rate and three pretty precious commodities for modern-era locks, and Whitelock is a trailblazer in that regard. Frankly ridiculous to think he is yet to reach 25 – there are very few gaps on his glittering CV.5. Paul O’Connell – Super-human display for Munster against Harlequins in the Heineken Cup quarter final was as awesome as any individual effort of last season in either hemisphere. That such a display came on his sixth game back from a career-threatening back complaint is testament to O’Connell’s bloody-minded resilience and unparalleled authority. He brought those qualities on the plane to Australia too – and inspired four nations.6. Alessandro Zanni – Sergio Parisse tends to occupy the customary Italian spot in these ideological sides. However, following another high-octane Six Nations saturated with immense industry, Zanni cannot be ignored. Not as box-office as Parisse, whose link-play remains deliciously easy on the eye, but utterly relentless and marauding – an asset to any outfit, even if he tired slightly in South Africa.

Mayor Vincent Grey place their hands over their heart during the singing of the U.S. National Anthem during a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela at Washington National Cathedral on Dec. 11. Vice President Joe Biden and Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, led the national service for Mandela, held in conjunction with the South African Embassy, and featuring a host of dignitaries, elected officials, and civil rights leaders. Photo: Cliff Owen, Associated Press[Episcopal News Service] On the day when Nelson Mandela’s body began lying in state outside South Africa’s official seat of government power, an array of dignitaries gathered in the U.S. capital to say farewell to “a man of biblical stature.”Rabbi Stuart Weinblatt, of Congregation B’nai Tzedek, compared Mandela’s story to that of the Old Testament Joseph, a man initially shunned who became a leader of an African nation and who later showed mercy to his captors.Washington National Cathedral was the site of a, by turns, a somber, rousing and rollicking three-hour-ten-minute national interfaith service celebrating Mandela’s “life, legacy and values.” The service, which was live-streamed, included prayers and speakers from a number of religious experiences. The colors of South Africa and the United States were presented during the service, to the singing of each country’s national anthems.Among the many speakers were U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Former U.N. Ambassador Andrew J. Young and Rev. Allan Boesak, who directs the Desmond Tutu Center at Christian Theological Seminary at Butler UniversityFlags flying at half-staff across the United States showed, South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool said during the service, that for Americans “Nelson Mandela was both a part of the history and a part of their future.”South Africa is “deeply honored” by the service, he said.Washington, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray led the congregation in praying the prayer attributed to St. Francis.Biden said that the United States mourns with South Africa. Biden recounted his experience of the U. S. participation in the effort to eliminate apartheid. He also recalled meeting Mandela after he became the South African president and remembered his “moral courage” as being defiant of the “violent, repressive regime that had done so much violence against his people,” and also his loyalty to all South Africans that Biden said was “redeeming.”Mandela, he said, taught the world that change, trust and reconciliation can all happen.“So many places in the world need the lesson of Nelson Mandela,” Biden said.Biden’s speech was followed by a short video and audio montage of Mandela’s words.The Rev. Allan Boesak, director of the Desmond Tutu Center at Christian Theological Seminary and Butler University, preached the sermon. Boesak worked with both Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu to eliminate apartheid and promote reconciliation.After Mandela was released he taught “the difference between determination and bitterness,” Boesak said.“He brought healing to our souls,” he said, repeatedly warning that the struggle for equality, justice, peace and reconciliation is not over.“There is so much left for us to do,” he said, calling on those present to vow to continue the work and bringing the congregation to applause.In a closing prayer Diocese of Washington Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde asked God to “let a portion of his mantle rest upon all of us, upon all people,” adding that “we pray and pledge to be worthy of it.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said Mandela lived in the manner described by Rabia of Basra, an 8th century Sufi mystic, who wrote “Ironic, but one of the most intimate acts of our body is death, so beautiful appeared my death – knowing who then I would kiss, I died a thousand times before I died. ‘Die before you die,’ said the Prophet Muhammad. Have wings that feared ever touched the Sun? I was born when all I once feared – I could love.”“It turns to us to walk from here,” Jefferts Schori said, echoing the prayer that she said Mandela used to pray, Anglican Archbishop Trevor Huddleston’s “Prayer for Africa.”The presiding bishop echoed that prayer in her blessing, praying for God to bless the world and its leaders and people.“Go in peace, be peace, make peace,” she said at the end of her blessing.A copy of the order of service is here. The cathedral staged the service in partnership with the South African embassy. Music ranged from traditional African music to folk songs from the civil rights era, performed by Peter, Paul and Mary and Sweet Honey in the Rock, to and a Russian Orthodox Beatitudes by the Cathedral Choir and other Western sacred music. A rendition of :Siyahamba/We Are Marching in the Light of God” by the WPAS Children of the Gospel Choir and the Pacific Boychoir brought the congregation to its feet when Boesak stood up and began dancing.Towards the end of the service there was a surprise appearance by American opera singer Jessye Norman who sang an a cappella piece combining “Amazing Grace” and “A Home in Glory.”Also during the service, National Museum of African Art Director Johnetta Betsch Cole and Cathedral chorister Rubii Tamen read a new poem about Mandela’s life and death titled “His day is done.”Mandela died Dec. 5 at his home and was memorialized Dec. 10 during an extraordinary gathering of tens of thousands of ordinary South Africans and world leaders in a soccer stadium in Soweto.On the first day of three days of Mandel’s lying in state in Pretoria, the country’s capital city, the number of mourners overwhelmed authorities’ efforts to control the crowds. Mandela will be buried during a state funeral in the Eastern Cape village of Qunu, where he grew up.Washington National Cathedral has historic ties to the people of South Africa. The Right Rev. John Walker, former dean of the cathedral and bishop of Washington, vocally advocated for the end of apartheid and demonstrated in front of the South African Embassy in 1985. The cathedral also maintains a very special relationship with the former Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa and Nobel Peace Prize Recipient, the Most Rev. Desmond Tutu, hosting him for several special events over the years.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Between the public guest area and the master living area, there is a courtyard garden with a vertical garden as the vocal point, as the barrier to keep privacy for the private area. Interior and exterior spaces are connected by openings that have a direct view of the garden and the swimming pool. A hanging stair with the wood and marble connect the first story to the upper level of the house, which contains the bedrooms for the owner.

Shutdown Delays USMCA Trade Agreement and Release of January WASDE Report

first_img Shutdown Delays USMCA Trade Agreement and Release of January WASDE Report SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Shutdown Delays USMCA Trade Agreement and Release of January WASDE Report The government shutdown could stall progress on President Trump’s North American Free Trade Agreement replacement, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. Analysis of the agreement has stopped during the shutdown as the U.S. International Trade Commission, responsible for examining the trade agreement, remains at a standstill. If continued, Politico reports the shutdown could delay release of the report on the economic impact of the new agreement.The Trade Commission is required to submit the report, which many lawmakers will use to craft their positions on the deal, by March 15th. USMCA was signed by Trump and his counterparts on November 30th, last year. Trump followed a day later with notification that he would withdraw the current NAFTA if lawmakers didn’t move to approve USMCA quickly.The government shutdown, ending soon or not, is likely to delay the January World Agriculture Supply and Demand report as well. Scheduled for next Friday, January 12th, the World Agricultural Outlook Board needs a full week to release the report, once the government opens. Farm Journal’s AgWeb reports that while most of the information was gathered before the shutdown, analysis of the data remains.Even if lawmakers were to end the shutdown quickly, the delays are still likely at this point. However, reaching a budget agreement appears to be a tough battle with Democrats taking leadership of the House of Representatives and Republicans rejecting a spending plan by House Democrats before the new Congress began Thursday. Traders worry a prolonged shutdown could end with an excess of data flooding the market, including Department of Agriculture WASDE numbers, export sales data, and updates from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.Click below to listen to the HAT Morning Edition podcast where market analyst David Kohli talks about the potential impact a delayed WASDE report could bring to the markets.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleMore Challenges Ahead for Dairy Producers in 2019 on the HAT Thursday Morning EditionNext articleChina Purchasing More U.S. Soy NAFB News Service By NAFB News Service – Jan 3, 2019 last_img read more

One question was about the lease period of the tea stall/shop. Pawan wanted to know when was the license/permit for that tea stall/shop issued? He also sought certified copies of the relevant documents in this regard. As he did not receive any reply, he filed first appeal. Claiming that first appeal was not being disposed of by the authority, he approached the Central Information Commission.The CPIO, Western Railway, in response to this appeal, contended that no RTI application and First Appeal was received by it before 17th June 2020 (when he received it along with second appeal notice). It further submitted that the information sought by the applicant was too old and no record of that period was maintained by the Ahmadabad Division.Information Commissioner Amita Pandove then disposed the second appeal directing the authority to file an affidavit with the Commission deposing that RTI application and first appeal were not received by him prior to 17.06.2020. It also directed the authority to file another affidavit stating that no record relating to information sought on point nos. 1 to 11 of the RTI application are available with it.In 2016, the ‘RTI Activist’ had filed a second appeal before the Commission dissatisfied with response he got from the PMO to his RTI Plea regarding the poll promises made by the Prime Minister of ‘depositing Rs. 15 lakh into every citizen’s bank account’. That appeal was disposed by the Commission observing that the response by PMO was satisfactory. In 2014, Pawan sought through RTI an information regarding when the mortal remains of Emperor Prithviraj Chauhan shall be brought to India from Afghanistan and also the copy of the letters/correspondences of the Government of India, Afghanistan in the matter etc. In 2017, he filed an RTI before the CBI in which he sought information regarding the discharge of Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case. The commission dismissed his second appeal observing that ‘perception’ of the applicant about ‘human rights violation’ is no ground to agitate right to information under the proviso to Section 24(1) of RTI Act. Merely because Appellant is of the opinion that CBI’s failure to Appeal against the discharge order of Amit Shah amounts to human rights violation of the kith and kin of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, the proviso to Section 24(1) of RTI Act will not become operative, the Commission had said in that case.Click here to Read/DownloadRead DownloadNext Storylast_img read more
