Jaque Fourie suspended for dangerous tackle on Ma’a Nonu

first_imgMonday Sep 14, 2009 Jaque Fourie suspended for dangerous tackle on Ma’a Nonu Springbok centre Jaque Fourie has been handed a 4 week suspension following the 32-29 Tri Nations victory over the All Blacks in Hamilton on the weekend.Fourie made a tackle on Ma’a Nonu in te 73rd minute of the match that was ignored by the referee and touchjudges, but picked out by citing commisioner Scott Nowland after the match.Fourie, 26, appeared before a judicial hearing in Hamilton on Sunday. He argued that the tackle was reckless, but not intentional.After reviewing video evidence and hearing player submissions, Judicial officer Paul Tulley said that the tackle had been “clearly dangerous and placed the player in a vulnerable position when he landed on his neck and shoulder.”Fourie was not intending to play next week, so his suspension will begin on September 26th, and run until October 19th. If his team, the Lions, don’t make the Currie Cup final, he won’t be playing again any time soon.Following the controversy with the Bakkies Botha ‘Justice 4’ incident, questions of consistency when it comes to ‘independent’ panels are sure to come up again.

Impossible Foods Launches 2021 Internship Program

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Previous articleGlobal Erectile Dysfunction Market Outlook and Forecast Report 2021-2026 – ResearchAndMarkets.comNext articleGlobal Laboratory Automated Incubators Industry (2020 to 2027) – Key Market Drivers and Trends – ResearchAndMarkets.com Digital AIM Web Support REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 19, 2021– Impossible Foods is launching its 2021 summer internship program today by posting openings for 26 roles across the company, from R&D to Communications. Impossible Foods’ internship program is one of the most purpose-driven programs in Silicon Valley, giving students and graduates the opportunity to make a direct impact on the world’s most pressing environmental issues. The company receives thousands of applications from students, new graduates, and young leaders from around the world. Already considered the world’s No. 1 environmental startup, Impossible Foods’ mission is to reverse global warming and halt the world’s catastrophic biodiversity collapse by creating a mainstream, mass-market, consumer movement to eliminate among the most destructive technologies in human history: animal agriculture. The company’s flagship Impossible™ Burger has already started to displace sales of animal-derived foods, whose production is one of the biggest generators of greenhouse gas emissions and the leading driver of the global meltdown in wildlife. “Impossible Foods is where the world’s most creative thinkers — including undergrads, new grads and post-docs — can help solve the biggest problems facing humanity and our planet,” said Dr. Pat O. Brown, CEO and Founder of Impossible Foods. “Some brilliant, subversive and inspirational ideas have come from Impossible Foods interns, and their fresh perspective and risk tolerance reinforce our company’s unique values and culture.” The application process is open through the end of March. Internships begin in mid-June. The summer 2021 intern cohort will include 100% telecommuting and hybrid positions; numerous R&D roles will be on site in the company’s R&D center in the San Francisco Bay Area. All positions are paid at competitive hourly rates. Impossible Foods is focused on recruiting diverse talent and hiring interns that represent the communities they serve. The program aims to build a strong, inclusive culture, where innovation can flourish. Interested applicants can view the job descriptions and apply here. Interns in the pipeline Impossible Foods’ first official summer internship program was in 2018, when 18 interns from an applicant pool of more than 1,500 people took on high-impact work to change the global food system. As Impossible Foods rocketed to one of the hottest brands in America, the number of applicants has surged every year since. The internship program has become a significant pipeline for talent; nearly one in four Impossible Foods interns since 2018 have become full-time, permanent employees after their 10-week internships. The 2020 intern cohort had an even greater rate of conversion to permanent employees; half of the most recent interns converted to permanent roles, with a wide range of benefits, including stock options. In addition to solving the world’s most pressing environmental challenge, interns participate in career and community-building activities including a Community Service Day with other interns; “Lunch & Learns” with senior executives; mentorship meetings; weekly All Hands meetings with the entire company; and other events. All interns are assigned a mentor to support and inspire them throughout the summer. “We have high expectations of our interns, who go through the same rigorous application process as any prospective hire,” said Kae Saechin, R&D Recruiting Manager and head of the internship program at Impossible Foods. “And our interns have very high job satisfaction: They establish close bonds with others in their cohort and throughout the company at large. It’s a lot of work and even more fun.” All Science No Bull About half of the 2021 internships are in R&D. These internships are in addition to a year-long push to double the size of the company’s R&D team, which currently has about 50 immediate openings. The recruiting team is also looking to fill 10 roles as part of the all-new “Impossible Investigator program” — a high-impact alternative to traditional academic faculty positions. These roles represent an unprecedented opportunity for scientists who want the facilities, resources and innovative environment to create an entirely new technology platform to replace animals as our technology for turning plants into meat, fish and dairy foods. For details, check out Impossible Foods’ R&D recruiting site, allsciencenobull.com. About Impossible Foods: Based in California’s Silicon Valley, Impossible Foods makes delicious, nutritious meat and dairy products — with a much smaller environmental footprint than meat from animals. The privately held company was founded in 2011 by Patrick O. Brown, M.D., Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry at Stanford University and a former Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. Investors include Khosla Ventures, Bill Gates, Google Ventures, Horizons Ventures, UBS, Viking Global Investors, Temasek, Sailing Capital, and Open Philanthropy Project.

IRC says it has no control over rise in fuel surcharge

first_imgLocalNews IRC says it has no control over rise in fuel surcharge by: – May 4, 2012 Sharing is caring! 14 Views   no discussions Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share (L-R): IRC’s Chairman Eluid Williams, Lance McCaskey, IRC’s Public Consumer Relations Manager Mara Ettiene-Manley, IRC Commissioner Cassel, and Dr. Eisenhower Douglas The International Regulatory Commission (IRC) has said that it has no control over the increase in fuel surcharge on the island.The IRC met with the media on Thursday, to discuss the rise in the fuel surcharge currently being experienced.Executive Director of the IRC Lance McCaskey says the organization has been trying to minimize the surcharge which is particularly due to increases in fuel prices.He explained that because the world has been experiencing a steady rise in fuel prices in recent times, this has caused fuel prices paid by DOMLEC to move from $11.74 per gallon in January 2012 to $12.59 in April 2012.“Since Dominica is highly dependent on the use of fossil fuel for its electricity generation, these increases have been affecting us. The trouble is that DOMLEC as well as the IRC do not have control over these rises,” he explained.According to McCaskey, from January of 2012, the fuel surcharge that consumer have been paying have been increasing“Those who have their electricity bills would see that the fuel surcharge in January was $0.40/KWh that rose to $0.50/KWh in April. We have been working closely with DOMLEC all the time to see how we could minimize the impact of the rises in fuel prices. We have also been looking at the fuel system to ensure that the information of fuel used in generation in any one month is acceptable and correct,” he said.The IRC, he noted, has also been working with DOMLEC on improving the efficiency of their generators. “Last year and beginning the year before, we did a fuel audit and we recalibrated all the dip sticks that DOMLEC used to arrive at the fuel used every month. We also had them changed out their meters twice. They realized that the meters were not right; they advised us that they were not right and we worked with them to change those meters. They were changed, put in place by the end of January but they have not all been working properly. Eleven were changed, ten are working properly”.McCaskey also announced that Dominica is not the only Caribbean island facing increase fuel surcharge as in April 2012 three other islands rates were; St. Vincent 56.62 cents, Grenada 67.84 cents and Barbados 67 cents.He reassured the public however that the IRC remains committed to ensuring that the interests of electricity consumers are protected and that where possible, the impact of rising fuel prices will be kept to a minimum.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Despite shot advantage, Orange men’s soccer settles for tie with DePaul

first_img Comments Brett Jankouskas outlines the three-part process. The three-part process to scoring goals. It’s a problem that can’t and won’t be solved overnight. It’s going to take time. And until then, it will surely irritate the Syracuse men’s soccer team. ‘At first (this season) we weren’t really getting any shots,’ Jankouskas said. ‘Now we’re getting a good number of shots, and we just need to work on getting them on target.’ Saturday, the Orange succeeded with the first two parts of the process. But still, it failed at the third. And failing at the third yielded yet another result void of three points. For just the second time all season Saturday, the Orange outshot its opponent, but settled for a 0-0 double overtime tie against DePaul. It was the third consecutive conference game in which a goal eluded the Orange (2-5-4, 0-1-2 Big East). After Saturday’s tie against DePaul (3-6-3, 0-2-1 Big East), Syracuse has still failed to score a single goal in Big East play. More than 300 minutes — or five full hours — and no goals to show for it. Nearly 40 total shots taken, none of which have beaten a goalkeeper. And although the Orange dominated the Blue Demons in front of 712 fans at the SU Soccer Stadium, it still only came away with one point. The plus-seven shot differential, 22-15 in favor of SU, was its largest of 2010.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text But still, Syracuse couldn’t make the ball cross the white line. ‘Absolutely, it’s frustrating,’ midfielder Nick Roydhouse said. ‘But when you start thinking of it that way, that’s when you start to lose it, and things kind of go off track. We just had to stay positive and keep on pushing for a goal.’ Part one of SU head coach Ian McIntyre’s offensive overhaul saw Syracuse dominated by its opponents. Through the first three games of the season, the Orange had a total of 16 shots. The offense looked anemic. But then, slowly but surely, it has started to turn around. Against Cornell, the SU offense exploded for 20 shots and matched that feat six days later against Canisius. Saturday’s 22 were a season-high. The system seems to be taking hold. ‘This is back-to-back good performances,’ McIntyre said. ‘If we were sitting here with no points from this, we’d be very disappointed. Now we have to convert these one-point (games) into three points.’ The way to do that is by scoring, turning those 22 shots into a tally on the scoreboard. Until then, Syracuse won’t move up from last in the Big East in goals scored. And for much of Saturday’s game, it appeared that Syracuse would break through. In the first half, forward Fredrik Forsman was slotted in behind the Blue Demons defense. All alone with the goalkeeper, Forsman’s left-footed shot soared high and wide of the goal. ‘It’s a little bit of a better feeling when you get outshot and then come out with a tie,’ midfielder Mark Brode said. ‘But we outshot them, and it’s rough.’ It was Brode who had the Orange’s best chance to score with under 6:30 to play in regulation. Streaking through the middle of the field, Brode received a perfect cross off the foot of Jankouskas. It hit him in stride just beyond the penalty spot, but his volley soared over the goal. But this was a game in which the Orange couldn’t catch a break. Twice in the second overtime, it looked as if SU had won the game, only to have the officials stifle those efforts. Jankouskas was taken down in the penalty area for what looked like a certain penalty kick, but the whistle didn’t blow. Minutes later he scored the game-winning goal after redirecting a Roydhouse shot, only to have it be called back for offsides. ‘Going into overtime, we said that one (point) was the minimum,’ Roydhouse said. ‘We were really pushing for the three points; it’s just unfortunate that we didn’t come away with it.’ Now that the offense is creating those chances, it must keep working to improve the quality. Most of SU’s 22 shots Saturday didn’t trouble the goalkeeper. And a shot that’s not on target isn’t really a shot at all, said Roydhouse. More shots on target should lead to more goals. That’s the plan. Step three. ‘(If we had) a little bit more precision, a little bit of a killing edge in the penalty area, then we win that game,’ McIntyre said. ‘And we may win it by a couple.’ [email protected] Published on October 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Waterhouse veteran McCallum retires

first_imgExperienced campaigner Richard ‘Spoon’ McCallum has retired as goalkeeper of Red Stripe Premier League club Waterhouse FC. He is now acting general secretary at the Drewsland-based club. “I have retired because of personal reasons, to pursue a bachelors degree in production and operation,” said McCallum, who stood between the sticks at Waterhouse for 12 years, during an interview with The Gleaner yesterday. “The club was notified two months ago, and it is effective as at December 31, 2015,” he added. McCallum was approached to take up a position as general secretary, at the club because Felix Porter has vacated the post due to health reasons. “The club (Waterhouse) approached me to be acting general secretary, and I duly accepted the post,” McCallum informed. He said the players in the senior team at the club expressed regrets with him leaving at this time. “I spoke to the players, and some have expressed regrets and want me to delay the decision, but I have to think about life after football. I can’t continue to focus on goalkeeping and school at the same time,” McCallum said. McCallum also represented Invaders FC for one year and Seba (now Montego Bay United) for three years, before journeying from St James to St Andrew. He made his international debut for Jamaica in 2006, and also represented the country at the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 levels.last_img read more

BEGIN AGAIN FUNDING OUTRAGE: DONEGAL COMPANY SAYS SCHEME IS ‘BEST EVER’

first_imgA WELL-KNOWN Donegal company is supporting the call for funding to be restored to a programme which helps get unemployed people back into work.Hugh & Grace Ann Downey of Sharp Design are currently work-placing a group of 15 unemployed highly qualified design, multi media & marketing graduates who for most of them have spent the last 1-2 years trying to enter the work place.Said Grace Ann Downey: “The idea came about to approach ‘Begin Again’ after years of frustration on our behalf interviewing designers & web designers. “At interview stage we can immediately identify if they are work ready & unfortunately we have been very unfortunate in getting quality and creative work ready designers.“We identified that there was still a huge gap between graduating from university or college and entering the workplace.“We designed a smart working module that we thought would bridge this gap and we approached ICBE Begin Again, a labour market activation programme funded through the Department of Education & Skills.“Over the past six months the programme has registered over a thousand job-seekers and potential employers. A careful matching process has enabled over 300 work-placements to be established. “Together with intensive and relevant training & mentoring, this has facilitated the return to employment of a large proportion of participants. Of 77% of people who have completed the training and directed work placement to date, 60% have so far been returned to work, commenced self-employment or commenced a career change course of study.”A number of variations of the programme are taking place in the North West involving some 90 participants. But as we revealed on Tuesday, funding has been cut. Director John Buckley (pictured) said he was ‘gutted’.This includes general groups as well as specialised cohorts (GAA Youth Coaches, Forestry Trainees and a Creative Design, Web, Multi Media & E-Marketing Group of Internships).Hugh added: “The programme consists of 12 weeks work placement in a business environment. Their social welfare was not affected during these weeks. They attended positivity & self confidence building training days. They were coached on interview skills, portfolio presentation, communication & commercial sales training on being employed or being self employed.“At the end of our particular programme they received accredited certification in leadership (Fetac Level 5) a European Accredited Certification in Leadership, a complete new CV with work experience and last but not least the confidence to get up & go!” BEGIN AGAIN FUNDING OUTRAGE: DONEGAL COMPANY SAYS SCHEME IS ‘BEST EVER’ was last modified: February 17th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sharks pass ‘big test’ with top grades: ‘we’re one of the favorites’

first_imgNASHVILLE, Tenn. — The game lived up to the hype.Two Stanley Cup favorites, the Sharks (5-3-1) and the Nashville Predators (7-2), slugging it out for 60 minutes in a see-saw game decided in the late stages of the third period.With the likes of Erik Karlsson, P.K. Subban and Brent Burns on the ice, Brenden Dillon scored the pivotal goal, going end-to-end on the penalty kill, triggering flashbacks of another No. 4 — Bobby Orr — as he jumpstarted the Sharks come-from-behind victory.Here’s what …last_img

Aussie Dino Stampede Tramples Long Ages

first_img(Visited 113 times, 1 visits today)Facebook Researchers just published findings on a decade-long study of one of the biggest dinosaur trackways on earth, located on the west coast of Australia.The BBC News calls it “Australia’s ‘Jurassic Park.’” First brought to the attention of scientists in 2008 by local aboriginal tribespeople who have known about them for centuries, the Kimberley track site covers some 80 kilometers of coastline along northwest Australia, and includes thousands of tracks from 21 species of dinosaurs. These include stegosaurs (never before seen in Australia) and sauropods with tracks 1.5 meters long—big enough for a man to recline in (see the photo in the article). Lead researcher Steven Salisbury says on Australia’s SBS news site,“There were five different types of predatory dinosaur tracks, at least six types of tracks from long-necked herbivorous sauropods, four types of tracks from two-legged herbivorous ornithopods, and six types of tracks from armoured dinosaurs.”Most of Australia’s dinosaur fossils have previously come from the eastern side of the vast country.The articles claim that dinosaurs roamed this area for over 10 million Darwin Years, but something’s wrong with this picture. The tracks are right on the coastline, often covered up at high tide. Photos show that many of them have crisp, sharp edges. It seems inconceivable that they could look so fresh after so much time passed. Indeed, Tas Walker, associated with Creation Ministries International, pointed out numerous problems with the evolutionary slow-and-gradual picture in his October 2012 CMI article on the tracks:One clue that we are looking at an unprecedented geological catastrophe is the enormous extent of the sedimentary deposits. Host Mark Horstman explains that the footprints are preserved in the Broome Sandstone, which extends for 200 km along the coastline and is up to 280 metres thick. He says, “At the time this was a vast river plain of muddy swamps and sandbars.” Actually, there was not a lot of mud. Mostly it was fine to very coarse sand with areas of gravel. The Broome Sandstone is known to cover the whole of the Dampier Peninsula. A river plain of such an enormous extent is monstrous compared with the rivers on the earth today. The Broome Sandstone points to an exceptionally large depositional system.To Walker, the evidence points to dinosaurs running to escape rising flood waters. And this was no ordinary flood; as he describes, the extent of the trackway deposits cannot accommodate a slow, gradual deposition over millions of years. So why wouldn’t scientists follow the evidence where it clearly leads?There are so many clues in the rocks at that point to the catastrophe of Noah’s Flood, yet Steve Salisbury and his team did not make the connection. They have been trained for years to think in one particular way, and Noah’s Flood is not on their radar. Worse still, if they ever did seriously float that possibility they would almost certainly lose their jobs (see Expelled).Salisbury’s results are published as the 2016 Memoir of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. The open-access paper includes a comparison with other major dinosaur trackways around the world:Globally, there is also no other discrete dinosaurian ichnofauna pertaining to a single geological formation that contains as many track types as the Broome Sandstone in the Yanijarri–Lurujarri section of the Dampier Peninsula. Although there are many areas that contain an abundance of tracks and trackways, as best as we have been able to ascertain, none appears to be equal to the Broome Sandstone in terms of the overall diversity of track types that are represented.The paper makes no mention of evolution, but neither does it mention how the tracks were buried (which must have happened quickly, otherwise they would have degraded). Were these tracks made casually along a broad river plain? Remarkably, the sandstone deposit contains no vertebrate fossils—only some tracks left by some of the largest land vertebrates that ever lived. Salisbury’s team believes the tracks are largely ‘coeval’ (i.e., deposited around the same general time). It would seem challenging to incorporate this evidence into Darwin’s lazy, slow-and-gradual scheme of things.Update 3/29/17: In other dinosaur news, Science Daily reports that assumptions about how to tell male/female differences in dinosaur bones has been called into question. And in a feature about ichthyosaurs, Nature admits there are no fossil ancestors of these large, successful marine reptiles that “terrorized the ancient seas.” Whatever it was, it had to be a land animal in the evolutionary view. “They totally changed their bodies, biologies and behaviours in order to live in the water,” remarked Stephen Brusatte, which is exactly the problem with whale evolution, too.Breathes there an evolutionist who can look at evidence like this with an open mind, and conclude that there is something big-league wrong with the consensus view of earth history? Probably not. That’s why creation scientists, accustomed to looking at things fairly from both sides, provide a valuable check on the dogmatism of evolutionists.last_img read more
