Manu Tuilagi tackles David Wallace out of the Rugby World Cup

first_imgMonday Aug 29, 2011 Manu Tuilagi tackles David Wallace out of the Rugby World Cup Having lost their last few internationals and now dropped to eighth in the official IRB World Rankings, Ireland are also having to deal with injury woes, the latest of which is to stalwart David Wallace, who will be missing the Rugby World Cup as a result. Wallace was hit hard by young England center Manu Tuilagi on Saturday, causing knee ligament damage that has means his World Cup dream was over in an instant. He has since had surgery, and put on a brave face as he tweeted on Sunday, ‘Thanks to all for the uplifting msg’s. Had op this morning so its all improvement here on. Lets get behind the team ‘. Ireland have already lost Felix Jones to injury, which gave fullback Geordan Murphy the chance to join the squad. Coach Declan Kidney was very upset with the news. “You have to deal with these things. Hes 35 and Ive never seen a man as physically fit as he is right now. Its heartbreaking for him and his family. Its extremely disappointing for us but will be good news for someone else. Thats the cut-throat nature of sport,” said Kidney. Shane Jennings has been named as his replacement. Tuilagi, who tackled Wallace into touch, causing the flanker to twist his knee under the force, had a great match for England, scoring a try and looking solid on defence, along with center partner Mike Tindall, who later commented, “It’s great playing next to him. If you’re in any doubt just give him the ball!” “He’s a physical specimen who can create anything from nothing,”added Tindall. Murphy, who plays with Manu at Leicester Tigers, said he’ll be a serious threat at the RWC. “Manu’s going to have a massive impact at the World Cup. He’ll be a force on the internationals stage for some time to come. He’s an attacking threat and defensively his game has come on immeasurably. He’s so strong. He’s got to be in the England team.” He added that he’s a great guy off the field, and everyone gets along with him. “He’s very grounded, I don’t think that will change, and he will just get better and better. He’s the youngest of a rugby playing family and they will all help keep his feet on the ground.” If you fancy leaving a comment wishing Wallace all the best in his recovery, please go ahead.Time: 02:38 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

New facility where Fort Worth residents can dine, drink and workout to open soon

first_imgSierra Tuthill printThe people of Fort Worth can expect a new area where they can get fit, dine and have fun at The Trailhead.The Cassco Development Company came up with the idea of having a hub for locals to gather and access the trails. This is usually referred to as a trailhead, so Cassco decided to establish The Trailhead, according to marketing director Angelica Plasencia.The new facility, located on Clearfork Main Street about 2 miles down the trail from Woodshed Smokehouse, is a 13,000-square-foot building that has three different uses.The first use is Mellow Johnny’s bike shop. The shop will offer bike sales, a full-service shop and bike rentals. It will serve a variety of customers.“It’s not just for the avid cyclists, it’s for a range of cycling enthusiasts to people who have never been on a bike before,” Plasencia said.The building will also include the Press Cafe. Local chef Felipe Armada, who owns Taverna and Pacific Table in Fort Worth, will operate the cafe.“Press Cafe is going to match that health and wellness theme that the Trailhead is aiming for,” Plasencia said.Press Cafe will be an urban restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Menu items will include juices, coffees, fresh salads, sandwiches and other health-conscious entrees for dinner.Weekday nights and weekends, Press Cafe will have a full-service, rooftop bar that will serve local beers, wines and mixed drinks.“I think it’s great because we are super active and into fitness, but at the same time we are really social and love to eat,” TCU junior Christen Lockett said.Mellow Johnny’s bike shop will host its grand opening on Oct. 3, and Press Cafe and the rooftop bar will open later this fall.

Novel H1N1 flu activity continues at unusual levels

first_imgJul 24, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Pandemic H1N1 influenza activity decreased for the fourth consecutive week, though the percentage of deaths from pneumonia and influenza rose a bit above the epidemic threshold, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today.The nation’s number of lab-confirmed novel flu cases rose to 43,771, including 302 deaths, the CDC said. Anne Schuchat, MD, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said at a press conference today that this would be the last national case count update, though the CDC will still provide regular updates on hospitalizations and deaths.Many public health officials say keeping case counts in countries that have had ongoing widespread transmission isn’t useful, because it dramatically underestimates the true burden of the disease and can be a waste of public health resources.On Jul 16 the World Health Organization (WHO) announced it would no longer provide a regular global case count, but would instead issue periodic surveillance updates and will still issue case counts for areas in which the virus is just beginning to circulate.Unusual activity for summerIn a statement today, the WHO said the number of pandemic H1N1 cases is still increasing substantially in many countries, even in those that were first affected. Most countries are reporting that most cases continue to occur in younger people, with a median age of 12 to 17 based on information from Canada, Chile, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.Despite the dip in lab-confirmed cases in the United States, Schuchat said the level of flu circulation is still very unusual for the summer months. She added that the CDC has gotten reports of outbreaks at summer camps and military academies where people from different parts of the country come together. “Unfortunately, it’s been a challenging summer,” she said.Seven states are reporting widespread activity, including California, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, and New Jersey, the CDC said in its flu surveillance report for the week ending Jul 17. Thirteen states and Puerto Rico are experiencing regional activity. Many of the states reporting regional activity are on the East coast.Five pediatric flu deaths were reported during the past flu surveillance week, though some occurred as far back as February. Four of the deaths were from novel H1N1, and one was associated with an influenza B virus. Of the 95 pediatric deaths that have been reported during the current flu season, 27 were related to the new flu virus.More than 99% of all subtyped influenza A viruses reported to the CDC were the novel flu strain.Pneumonia and influenza deaths, tracked through the 122-Cities Mortality Reporting System, were at 6.7%, which is slightly above the 6.5% baseline.Seasonal flu vaccine recommendationsIn other developments, the CDC today issued its recommendation for the seasonal flu vaccine, which appeared in an early edition of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). For the first time, the CDC recommends, rather than encourages when feasible, the shot for children aged 6 months to 18 years. Today’s appeal is part of a gradual phase-in of the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation for kids, Schuchat said.The CDC now recommends the seasonal flu vaccine for about 83% of the population or for anyone who wants to reduce their risk, she said. However, only 40% of the recommended groups received their flu vaccine last year, she added.The 2009-10 vaccine contains a different influenza B strain from last year’s version but the same seasonal H1N1 and H3N2 strains.Seasonal flu vaccine immunization campaigns should begin as soon as the vaccine is available to make way for another possible round of vaccination against the pandemic H1N1 virus, she said.See also:CDC weekly flu surveillance reportJul 24 WHO statementJul 24 MMWR reportlast_img read more

In-form Arsenal eyeing Europa League knockout spot

first_imgParis, France | AFP | Unai Emery’s Arsenal head into Thursday’s clash with Sporting Lisbon at the Emirates bidding for a place in the Europa League knockout stage, buoyed by an impressive display in their draw against Premier League title hopefuls Liverpool.The Gunners are top of Group E having won all three of their matches so far, and have looked revitalised in the early stages of the post-Arsene Wenger era.A second straight victory over Portuguese giants Sporting would extend their unbeaten run to 15 matches in all competitions.Back-to-back defeats by Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the campaign had left some onlookers questioning whether Arsenal could compete with stronger opposition, but close-season signing Bernd Leno said Saturday’s performance had proved a point.“I think we saw that we can play our way against big teams,” the German goalkeeper told the club’s website.“We controlled Liverpool. We played out from the back. It was not just lucky or lucky things to create from. We played the ball with passes from behind and that’s the way we want to play.”The 2006 Champions League runners-up failed to qualify for Europe’s top competition in each of Wenger’s last two seasons at the helm, but are now in contention to end that run on two fronts.Leno thinks that Emery’s influence has been key to changing the mood around the Emirates Stadium.“The coach gives us a lot of confidence to play like this,” he added.“I can’t compare it because last year I was not here but I think (Emery) changed some things –- of course, the way we play from behind but also to play very aggressive, the defence is getting better, controlled.“Tactically, it is one step better than at the beginning of the season because it needs time and it also needs time now in the next weeks.“If we work like this and play like this, we could have a great season.”– Morata form boosts Chelsea –Chelsea will also book a ticket for the last 32 with victory over BATE Borisov in Belarus, after seeing Alvaro Morata make it five goals in six games in their win over Crystal Palace at the weekend.Maurizio Sarri’s side are unbeaten since a 2-0 Community Shield loss to Man City in August, and have scored 18 goals over their last six outings. They top Group L with nine points and will qualify for the last 32 with a win.“I have started scoring again for two weeks and now I am happy, the team plays good and I don’t need to think about scoring more goals than other players,” Morata told Chelsea’s website, after breaking a terrible run of form that saw him net just four times in his previous 31 matches.Elsewhere on Thursday, record five-time winners Sevilla travel to Turkish side Akhisar Genclik Spor looking to strengthen their grip on top spot of Group J, while Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan travel to Spain hoping to avenge their defeat by Real Betis two weeks ago.Fixtures (all times GMT)Group ABayer Leverkusen (GER) v Zurich (SUI) (2000)Ludogorets Razgrad (BUL) v AEK Larnaca (CYP) (2000)Group BRosenborg (NOR) v Salzburg (AUT) (2000)Celtic (SCO) v RB Leipzig (GER) (2000)Group CBordeaux (FRA) v Zenit St Petersburg (RUS) (2000)Slavia Prague (CZE) v FC Copenhagen (DEN) (2000)Group D Dinamo Zagreb (CRO) v Trnava (SVK) (2000)Fenerbahce (TUR) v Anderlecht (BEL) (1550)Group EArsenal (ENG) v Sporting Lisbon (POR) (2000)Vorskla Poltava (UKR) v Qarabag (AZE) (2000)Group FReal Betis (ESP) v AC Milan (ITA) (2000)Olympiakos (GRE) v Dudelange (LUX) (2000)Group GRapid Vienna (AUT) v Villarreal (ESP) (1755)Spartak Moscow (RUS) v Rangers (SCO) (1755)Group HApollon Limassol (CYP) v Eintracht Frankfurt (GER) (1755)Lazio (ITA) v Marseille (FRA) (1755)Group IGenk (BEL) v Besiktas (TUR) (1755)Malmo (SWE) v Sarpsborg (NOR) (1755)Group JAkhisar Genclik Spor (TUR) v Sevilla (ESP) (1755)Krasnodar (RUS) v Standard Liege (BEL) (1755)Group KFC Astana (KAZ) v Jablonec (CZE) (1550)Dynamo Kiev (UKR) v Rennes (FRA) (1755)Group LBATE Borisov (BLR) v Chelsea (ENG) (1755)Vidi (HUN) v PAOK (GRE) (1755)Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Ind vs Eng 2nd Test: Vaseline stirs up controversy

first_imgIt was jelly beans four years ago and it is vaseline this time as a controversy erupted in the second India-England Test when VVS Laxman was accused of using it on his bat to manipulate the Hot-Spot technology in the Decision Review System.”Has Vaseline on the outside edge saved the day for Laxman?” tweeted former England captain Michael Vaughan after Laxman was ruled not out by third umpire after the Decision Review System (DRS) was pressed into action by England in the first session of play.The Indian batsman was on 27, in the total 48/1, when the last delivery of James Anderson’s ninth over passed his bat. The bowler and the rest of England players promptly went up in appeal for a catch behind the stumps and began gathering around the batsman.As umpire Asad Rauf ruled in Laxman’s favour, England skipper Andrew Strauss went for DRS but that too didn’t favour the home side.Kevin Pietersen and Laxman were seen getting into a bit of an argument and later Stuart Broad told media persons his side was convinced it was a nick.”Players feel Hot-Spot sometimes doesn’t show faint edges. It’s a bit of a flaw,” stated Broad.But what kept the controversy lingering was the Vaughan tweet which virtually accused Laxman of wrong-doing since vaseline or any liquid on the bat don’t show up on the Hot-Spot technology.Broad actually went ahead and checked Laxman’s bat if there was any vaseline or liquid applied to it.”I had a cheeky feel of the edge of his bat as the ball went past him. There was no vaseline, no liquid there. It’s just that Hot-Spot is not showing very faint edges,” he said.advertisementIt is the second time vaseline has quite infamously figured in Test matches between the two countries who recently celebrated the 100th Test between them at Lord’s last week.When England toured India for the 1976-77 series, England’s left-arm fast bowler John Lever was accused by Indian skipper Bishan Singh Bedi of using vaseline to gain undue swing with his bowling during the Delhi Test and end up with 7/46 and 3/24 in his debut Test.Tests between the two at Trent Bridge too are known to stir up the pot.In 2007, the infamous jellybeans incident happened which was intended to show to the incoming batsman Zaheer Khan that he was faint-hearted.Sreesanth too was full of antics and misdemeanour in that Test – he once bowled a beamer at Kevin Pietersen; came around the wicket and bowled from practically 19 yards at Paul Collingwood and then shoulder barged the then England captain Vaughan for which he was fined 50 percent of his match fee.- With PTI inputslast_img read more

Joss Stone Named Ambassador For Lilongwe Wildlife Centre

first_imgLilongwe Wildlife Centre has announced Joss Stone as their new ambassador.Video: Joss Stone visits the Lilongwe Wildlife CentreThe singer visited the centre when she passed through Malawi during her Total World Tour.“Wildlife welfare is a cause very close to my heart, and to see the awesome work of the rescue team and the volunteers at the Wildlife Centre was truly inspiring,” she said. “But what’s also amazing about Lilongwe Wildlife Trust is the sheer scale of their work, which ranges from helping orphaned and injured animals and inspiring communities to protect their wildlife through to putting big ivory traffickers behind bars. I’m thrilled to be able to do my bit in support of Malawi’s wildlife and I would urge you to do whatever you can to help too.”Lilongwe Wildlife Trust’s works to protect Malawi’s habitats and wildlife through: • ADVOCACY & ENFORCEMENT initiatives that influence decision makers and help to bring wildlife criminals to justice. • WILDLIFE RESCUE & RESEARCH programmes that support the well-being of individual animals, the survival of species and the conservation of habitats. • CONSERVATION EDUCATION that inspires humans to live in harmony with nature.Lilongwe Wildlife Trust was established in 2008 when their first project – Lilongwe Wildlife Centre – opened as a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and education facility supporting the Government’s work fighting wildlife crimes.Since then their rescue and education remit has expanded nationally and in 2014, they started work to combat serious wildlife crime, in particular ivory trafficking. Today, their projects support high level wildlife crime investigations, wildlife justice programmes for prosecutors and courts, and revisions to wildlife policy and legislation.Find out more here.last_img read more
