World Champions confirm that in 2020 it’s either the Rugby Championship or an overseas tour

first_imgTuesday Jul 21, 2020 World Champions confirm that in 2020 it’s either the Rugby Championship or an overseas tour South Africa will either play in the Rugby Championship in New Zealand later this year or embark on a tour to Europe, but officials say they won’t have space on the calendar for both.ADVERTISEMENTThe Springboks have not been in action since lifting the World Cup in Japan last year, and face an uncertain schedule in the remainder of 2020 as travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic limit their ability to tackle multiple tours.South African Rugby chief executive Jurie Roux said they were hoping to start an eight-team domestic competition in either late August or early September to prepare players for an international window somewhere between October and December.“Whatever we can fit into that window we will and we are trying to deliver the Rugby Championship, which would almost certainly be in the bubble in New Zealand,” Roux told reporters.“If we do that there will be no time for other internationals, and in any case the Northern Hemisphere has been clear that they want to complete the Six Nations and then play a tournament with Japan and Fiji in that period.”Roux confirmed that the inbound tours by Scotland and Georgia, that had been scheduled for July, were cancelled and there would be no attempt to play them later in the year.The Boks were due to travel to Italy, France, Ireland and Wales for their traditional set of November internationals, the latter two fixtures providing vital preparation for a home meeting with the British & Irish Lions in July-August 2021.ADVERTISEMENTBut it now appears likely their only tests prior to that lucrative tour, the biggest set of fixtures outside of a World Cup, will be against Southern Hemisphere opposition.RELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Sihoru is a building to soak into the environment blandly without using any technical skills. It resembles surroundings harmoniously through its moderate form and natural properties of matter.

This is the first business for a couple of clients who have lived for a long time in Seoul and 100A associates’ first project in Jeju.

It is a small island only for rest, of which the space can be remembered perfectly with the time in it. It is also intended to be not a soaring but sunken building, in consideration of its site higher than other buildings around it and its narrow and long topography almost looking larger.Save this picture!© Jae-yoon KimWe tried not to emphasize the architectural form, by finishing it with the color sense and texture of materials which could be in harmony with surrounding environment naturally. We built the fence facing street higher in order to block the eyes and that facing village lower in order to mitigate the separated sense from the village.Save this picture!© Jae-yoon KimSituated passing through two stone fences as tall as an adult’s height, inner space is also just like an independent island. However differently from the outside, it is an inner space and at the same time outer space. Glass wall enclosing the space blurs more the boundary between inside and outside. It means that it creates the optimum landscape which can be found in the vicinity because it hardly has the distant scenery. Even though it evokes a remote feeling as if it were in an isolated island, it provides another environment through the connectivity of all spaces from its courtyard to bedroom, corridor and fence.Save this picture!© Jae-yoon KimDifferently from the exterior space which has the skin of outdoor environment, interior space is arranged with warm materials and color sense. It also has the expandibility in order that three generations of family can gather together even if it is small in area. Functions of living room, kitchen and entrance hall are integrated, and unnecessary space is removed boldly. Above all, ㄷ-shaped large window gives the sense of visible openness.Save this picture!© Jae-yoon KimInterior space also has the composition like ‘island in island’ by connecting vaguely the boundary between inside and outside of private area hidden functionally in open area. However, the open area communicates with the outside positively and honestly, while the private area fills up the outside a little more emotionally.Save this picture!© Jae-yoon KimWhile planning and constructing it, we might want Sihoru to be a space which would be a part of island as the time on this strange land would be accumulated as the memories of island.

Butterfield last month. This legislation would establish a voluntary, national labeling law for genetically modified foods and products. The legislation also would require FDA to evaluate all genetically engineered foods before they enter the market. This would pre-empt state mandatory laws for GMO labeling.The groups say the bill will ensure food labeling in the U.S. is uniform and based on science. The coalition urges Congress to pass the bill this year to ensure people across the nation continue to have access to consistent science-based standards for food labeling.

Mexico: Another journalist murdered in Veracruz

But colleagues of Vázquez said he had been threatened by local officials and had been about to file a complaint and seek protection.“With three journalists murdered in Mexico so far this year, the situation is becoming untenable for the Mexican media, especially those in Veracruz,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “The local police and judicial authorities must quickly identify those responsible for Leobardo Vázquez’s murder and provide his family with protection.”In a report published in February 2017, entitled “Veracruz: journalists and the state of fear,” RSF examines the critical situation of journalism in Veracruz and the flaws in Mexico’s mechanisms for protecting journalists in danger, and offers detailed recommendations for improving the situation.Vázquez was the third journalist to be murdered this year in Mexico, following Pamika Montenegro and Carlos Domínguez Rodríguez.The producer of El Sillón, a satirical news channel on YouTube in which she made fun of local politicians, Montenegro was shot by two unidentified gunmen in a restaurant in Acapulco, in the southwestern state of Guerrero, on 5 February. Domínguez was stabbed to death in the centre of Nuevo Laredo, in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, on 13 January.Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

To that end, the Merkin Institute offered grants to fund the new research projects on the potentially deadly virus that has rapidly encircled the globe.“Caltech faculty bring their unique experience, technologies, and innovative capacity to this complex problem,” Merkin Institute Director and Bren Professor of Molecular Biology Barbara Wold said. “We want to enable them to move boldly and rapidly.”More than 50 project proposals were considered before the Merkin Institute, with support of Caltech President Thomas F. Rosenbaum, Provost David A. Tirrell and the Merkin Institute’s executive committee, selected 21 to move forward.“Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the funded investigators come from five of Caltech’s six divisions,” according to the Caltech statement. “Many of the grants support projects that meet urgent needs, while others focus on longer-term impact. High-risk, high-reward projects were encouraged with the expectation that some will come to fruition as planned, some will not, and others will change greatly as our understanding of the new disease unfolds.”The initial round of funding covers six months of research, according to the university. After that, additional funding will be offered for the most promising projects, as well as for new research endeavors to better understand the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the illness it causes, known a COVID-19.Among the grant recipients are Caltech Assistant Professor of Computational Biology and Heritage Medical Research Institute Investigator Matt Thompson, who is looking for new approached to monitor gene expression profiles and potentially find ways to inhibit so-called “cytokine storms,” which are “severe immune reactions that can occur as a result of coronavirus infection,” according to Caltech.Another team led by Caltech professors Pamela Bjorkman and André Hoelz is looking toward proteins and protein complexes that interact with the novel coronavirus in hopes of discovering treatments, the university said.Caltech Professor of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Bioengineering Niles Pierce is among faculty members working on finding new ways to test for the virus.“He is modifying technology that he created to amplify and analyze genetic material so that it can be used for a simple and inexpensive home test for COVID-19 infection,” the statement said.“Meanwhile, Robert Grubbs, Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry and Nobel laureate, is using his grant to develop spray-on antiviral coatings for use on plastics and surfaces we encounter daily,” the statement added. Another project is studying the psychological and neurological impacts of stress and isolation.The Merkin Institute for Translational Research was established last year through a gift from Dr. Richard Merkin, a Caltech trustee and founder of the Heritage Provider Network, according to the Caltech statement. It works to support “all steps in the translational process, from basic discovery through to clinical application.”Merkin said he whole-heartedly approved of the important new research.“Combating the most pressing health care emergency of the 21st century requires a cross section of translational data and physical science efforts,” Merkin said. “I’m thrilled that the Institute is able to identify and execute on so many promising translational projects.” Your email address will not be published.

A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. According to Unison’s 2019 Home Affordability Report, it now takes 14 years for those making a median income to save for a 20% down payment on a median-price homes, meaning many prospective millennial homebuyers won’t achieve homeownership until their 40s.The report states that the monthly payment needed to support a home purchase with a down payment of 20% grew by 12% between 2017 and 2018, far outpacing the growth of income during that period of 6%.Unison found that it takes prospective homebuyers in Los Angeles an average of 43 years to save the necessary 20% for a down payment on a median-priced home. Prospective homebuyers in Detroit, Michigan, have to wait just seven years, the shortest in the nation, to save the necessary 20%.Along the West Coast, metros such as San Francisco, California (40 years), San Diego, California (31 years), San Jose, California (31 years), and Honolulu, Hawaii (40 years) had among the nation’s longest waits.San Francisco had the highest average monthly payment at $5,052, followed by San Jose’s $3,187. The average monthly payment in Los Angeles was $3,048. A San Francisco resident would need an average income of $202,094 to pay the necessary 20% down payment.Detroit had the lowest average monthly payment of $251, and was followed by Milwaukee, Wisconsin ($635), and Wichita, Kansas ($639.)Homeowners in Phoenix, Arizona, have seen the median income increased 7% year-over-year, while there monthly payments have grown 20% over that same period. Richmond, Virginia, has seen median incomes fall 5% since last year as monthly house payments have grown 7%. Homes in Phoenix are also among those that have seen their home values increase the most year-over-year, boosting a 13% increase. Miami, Florida, has the highest home value increase in the nation at 19%.Nashville, Tennessee, leads the nation with its annual income increasing 17% since 2018, which out paces monthly payment growth by 4%—the nation’s largest gap.Despite the affordability issues nationwide, the report found that median home values increased 6% nationwide between 2017-2018.

Weather leaves over 1,300 flights canceled on busy travel Monday

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Over 1,300 flights were canceled on this post-Thanksgiving Monday as a dangerous snowstorm tore through the Midwest before heading to the Northeast as rain.Airlines were forced to cancel over 1,200 flights on Sunday as snow blanketed parts of the Midwest on the busiest travel weekend of the year.Airlines are now overloaded as the cancellations bleed into Monday — and heavy rain is hitting Northeast airports, making matters worse.There were 1,331 flight cancellations as of Monday afternoon, with Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport feeling the brunt of the impact with 1,084 cancellations.  “What are you gonna do? It’s the weather,” traveler David Erickson told ABC News as he waited at O’Hare Sunday. “You just gotta deal with what they give you and they can’t really control the weather.”Erickson said the most “frustrating” part is to “wait in line and there’s no clear answer as to what’s next, because the next flight’s cancelled, as well.”“The better option, I guess, would have been to drive, but having to drive in the snow is probably not much fun either,” he said. “I guess we just wait it out and see what we get.”Mick Butterfield, who was trying to fly from Milwaukee to Austin, also found himself stuck in Chicago on Sunday.“The frustrating thing is really because you cannot actually do anything about it,” he told ABC News. “You’re completely helpless.”The Transportation Security Administration said it set a new single-day record on Sunday, screening over 2.7 million travelers.The winter storm brought blizzard-like conditions to parts of the Midwest and the Great Lakes and shut down major highways in states like Kansas, where the governor declared a state of disaster emergency on Sunday.The declaration came as a large chunk of Interstate 70 shut down due to poor visibility and road conditions.The weather also shut down parts I-80 in Nebraska as the fast-moving storm created whiteout conditions that made it nearly impossible for drivers to see.Iowa got the most snowfall among Midwestern states with totals of up to 17 inches, while Rockford, Illinois, got almost a foot, making history as the biggest November snowstorm for that area.Kansas City, Missouri, saw 5.8 inches of snow, marking the city’s snowiest November day since 1923.Monday night forecastThe storm has left the Midwest and is now moving into the Northeast as heavy rain. The storm is threatening to bring flash flooding from Philadelphia to New York City and up to Boston, just in time for the evening commute.LaGuardia Airport in New York City and Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey were already seeing flight cancellations and delays Monday afternoon.Around 7 p.m., as heavy rain hits New York City and southern New England, snow will be falling in northern New England.Along the coast, from Long Island to Boston, wind gusts may exceed 50 mph.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

800,000 years of abrupt climate variability

first_imgWe constructed an 800,000-year synthetic record of Greenland climate variability based on the thermal bipolar seesaw model. Our Greenland analog reproduces much of the variability seen in the Greenland ice cores over the past 100,000 years. The synthetic record shows strong similarity with the absolutely dated speleothem record from China, allowing us to place ice core records within an absolute timeframe for the past 400,000 years. Hence, it provides both a stratigraphic reference and a conceptual basis for assessing the long-term evolution of millennial-scale variability and its potential role in climate change at longer time scales. Indeed, we provide evidence for a ubiquitous association between bipolar seesaw oscillations and glacial terminations throughout the Middle to Late Pleistocene.last_img read more
