Ban for dangerous tackle after Under-21 player JD Schickerling breaks neck

first_imgThursday Sep 4, 2014 Ban for dangerous tackle after Under-21 player JD Schickerling breaks neck Blue Bulls Under-21 lock Marvin Orie received a one-week suspension after appearing before a SARU disciplinary committee in Pretoria following a citing for a dangerous tackle in the Absa Under-21 Competition on Saturday.Orie was cited for contravening law 10.4 (e) by tackling Western Province Under-21 lock JD Schickerling around the neck in the third minute of the match at Loftus Versfeld and holding the grip until both players fell to the ground.Schickerling, a promising prospect who has represented South Africa at Under-20 level, suffered a fractured cervical spine at the C5/C6 level. Luckily, he is expected to make a full recovery.In his findings judicial officer Advocate Tokkie van Zyl said it was highly improbable that Orie’s actions could have caused a serious neck injury.He described the tackle: “In evaluating the evidence as seen in the video material, it is clear that the player initially tackled the opponent by grabbing him around his arms from behind, thereafter releasing his grip and again grabbed (tackled) the opponent around the neck with his left arm.”It is highly likely, as seen in the video, that the injury occurred on the contact with lock Irne Herbst’s shoulder, which no doubt led Van Zyl to rule the following:“No medical or factual evidence was placed before me with regards to exactly when and how the opponent sustained the neck injury. I am, however, based on the evidence before me, of the view that it is highly improbable that the conduct of the player could have caused a serious neck injury to the opponent, although I cannot exclude such a possibility.“For purposes of considering an appropriate sanction and due to a lack of any evidence to that effect, I cannot find that the injury to the opponent was caused by the conduct of the player and will accordingly not take the injury into account as an aggravating factor,” added Van Zyl.“I am further of the opinion that in the event of the conduct of the player having been penalised during the game, it would most probably have resulted in a penalty or a yellow card, but was not in my opinion a red card offence.”Based on the evidence provided and having taken all mitigating factors into account, Van Zyl ruled that the incident was a lower-entry offence and suspended Orie for one week. Herbst was reportedly given an off-field yellow card for his part in the incident.video credit: Jan De KoningADVERTISEMENT 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 satellite that tracks ocean level rise lifts off

first_imgjaniecbros/iStockBY: CATHERINE THORBECKE, ABC NEWS(LOS ANGELES) — A SpaceX rocket launched a new American-European satellite that will monitor global sea levels and help our understanding of climate change on Saturday.The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite, a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency, lifted off at 12:17 p.m. ET from Space Launch Complex 4 East at California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. It was carried to the cosmos by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.The launch was broadcast live on NASA’s website.“What we expect to see, the new science coming out of Sentinel-6: that it would open up new frequencies and give us a fuller picture of what do we know about the oceans,” NASA program scientist Nadya Vinogradova-Shiffer said during a launch press briefing Saturday.While its primary goal is monitoring Earth’s oceans and sea level rise, the spacecraft also carries sensitive equipment that can track hurricanes and provide data that will improve weather forecasts and climate models on Earth.One instrument will “help us do all sorts of improvements to forecasts, including using the atmospheric measurements to monitor hurricanes from their formation all the way through their whole life and dissipation,” Eric Leuliette of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Saturday.It is the first of two twin satellites with the same mission. The second is set to launch in 2025.“The satellite will map 95% of Earth’s ice-free ocean every 10 days and provide crucial information for operational oceanography and climate studies,” the ESA said in a statement. “Since sea-level rise is a key indicator of climate change, accurately monitoring the changing height of the sea surface over decades is essential for climate science, for policy-making and for protecting those in low-lying regions at risk.”The work of a handful of multinational organizations went into Saturday’s mission, including the European Commission, the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, U.S.’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the French space agency CNES.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Hybrid estate agent who works from home takes over high street competitor

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Hybrid estate agent who works from home takes over high street competitor previous nextAgencies & PeopleHybrid estate agent who works from home takes over high street competitorIn an unusual move that may point to the future of the industry, Ewemove franchisee Chris Walthall has taken over a Martin & Co high street branch.Nigel Lewis1st March 201802,522 Views A glimpse of the industry’s future has been revealed after a Staffordshire estate agent who works from home with his two sons today announced he has bought a high street competitor.Chris Walthall (pictured, above), who set up a Ewemove franchise covering Leek and Hanley in Staffordshire four years ago, runs it with his son and fellow director Dan as well as another son, Conor.“I’ve operated the business from my home since 2014 and have a dedicated office space where I can have clients round and focus on my day-to-day work,” he says.The trio’s business, which Ewemove gathers together with other franchisees to create ‘Ewemove Staffordshire’ on Rightmove, offers both a sales and lettings service and, Ewemove claims, is now one of its most successful branches.Chris, like an increasing number of franchisees across the industry, had no experience of sales or lettings before acquiring the franchise, having previously been a salesperson in other sectors.But, although his family’s business is based from home, Chris has now bought a high street branch in Biddulph, to the north of Hanley, previously operated by a franchisee from Ewemove’s parent company Martin & Co (pictured, above).Its former owners will be keeping a close eye on the now Ewemove branded branch, as they’re setting a financial services agency next door.Two staff from the former Martin & Co branch will be moving over to Ewemove, taking its national headcount to over 200 people.“As soon as I became aware of EweMove and learnt about its ethical approach to estate agency, providing customers with a personal and digitally-pioneering service combined, it was a no-brainer for me to join the flock,” says Chris.I have a wonderful relationship with Martin & Co Biddulph’s former owners, and am delighted to be opening up the EweMove branch to service the Biddulph and Kidsgrove areas.”Chris’s business also recently also won two gongs recently at Ewemove’s annual awards bash including a prize for customer service and being crowned ‘Franchisee of the Year’.Read more about Ewemove.Leek Hanley Biddulph Chris Walthall Staffordshire EweMove Franchisee March 1, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Royal Navy Warships Continue Their Operations in the Arabian Sea

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy Warships Continue Their Operations in the Arabian Sea Royal Navy Warships Continue Their Operations in the Arabian Sea Two Royal Navy warships are continuing their operations in the Arabian Sea and Horn of Africa to deter piracy and build relations with nations in their respective regions.HMS Cornwall is operating in the Arabian Sea and recently tracked and boarded a pirate skiff believed to have been involved in attacks on merchant vessels.HMS Cornwall is currently the command ship for Combined Task Force 151, the counter-piracy mission of the Combined Maritime Forces – a 25-nation coalition committed to maritime security throughout the Middle East, and was tasked to investigate when the attack on the MV Leopard was reported.The skiff had four people on board, one of whom was injured and was then treated by the warship’s medical team.Once a full search by the ship’s boarding team had verified the suspect pirates had no means of conducting piracy with anything remaining on the skiff, they were left to continue back to the coast.While conducting the boarding operation, HMS Cornwall’s presence in this area disrupted two further potential attacks. The mere presence of a coalition warship nearby was enough to deter the suspected pirates and also reassure the captains of the would-be target merchant vessels.Speaking last month, HMS Cornwall’s Commanding Officer, Commander David Wilkinson, said:“Today’s events prove what the presence of a single warship can achieve. We can be confident one particular pirate skiff cannot attack any other shipping and that a further two potential pirate attacks were disrupted by HMS Cornwall’s presence.”Meanwhile, HMS Richmond, currently on a seven-month maritime security and counter-piracy deployment, has visited Djibouti, on the Horn of Africa, as part of her mission.The Type 23 frigate is supporting EU and UK commitments in the Gulf of Aden and is the UK’s contribution to the European Union Naval Force (EUNAVFOR), which is currently under the command of Rear Admiral Juan Rodríguez of the Spanish Navy.The Task Force’s main role is to deter and disrupt pirate activities off the Horn of Africa, although HMS Richmond will also continue to build relations in the area by making port visits and inviting dignitaries on board.Djibouti neighbours Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia and has a strong military presence from both France and the US. While the ship was alongside, her Commanding Officer, Captain Mike Walliker, hosted a number of visitors including the Honorary British Consul and local government representatives.Her ship’s company also took on the momentous challenge of tackling the French Foreign Legion at both football and rugby – losing both games but putting up a good fight along the way.Captain Walliker said:“I was both delighted and honoured to bring HMS Richmond into Djibouti as part of a wider deployment into the region.“My ship’s company, many of whom have never visited Djibouti before, greatly enjoyed their time alongside. We are all very much focused on our role within EUNAVFOR and the contribution we will make to the maintenance of maritime security in this important region.”As part of her deployment HMS Richmond will also help to secure the delivery of aid to Somalia under the World Food Programme and deploy for a time to the Far East in support of UK military commitments such as the Five Power Defence Arrangements. This will include diplomatic visits to ports in Indonesia, Brunei and Singapore.[mappress]Source: mod, February 7, 2011; View post tag: Warships View post tag: Arabian View post tag: Operations February 7, 2011 View post tag: continue View post tag: Navy Share this article View post tag: their View post tag: sea View post tag: Royallast_img read more

Slower growth predicted for gluten-free market

first_imgThe UK’s gluten-free market looks set to be worth the most in Europe over the next five years – valued at £242.719m. However, independent research analyst Datamonitor has predicted that growth will continue to slow.Despite gluten-free’s profile having been raised by celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Liz Hurley, who have been linked to gluten- or wheat-free diets, Datamonitor said it believes there is a risk it will suffer in the same way that low/no-carb products did over the second half of the last decade.“With a number of consumers also wrongly self-diagnosing themselves as coeliacs, as well as gluten-free being somewhat of a ‘vogue diet’ – therefore susceptible to a rapid decline in popularity among non-coeliacs – it is possible that long-term growth will be negatively impacted,” reported the firm.“In fact there are already signs that gluten-free may plateau in the future, as we predict growth over the next five years is somewhat less than what we’ve seen for the last five years,” commented consumer analyst Mark Whalley.Whalley said that firms need to focus on broadening their products’ appeal, and should ensure they communicate the wider benefits of gluten-free foods, rather than relying on what is excluded from products.These findings come from recent research by Datamonitor – The Future of Gluten-Free: Consumer Insight and Product Opportunities.last_img read more
