Wallabies triumph 16-9 over the Springboks in Perth

first_imgSunday Jul 20, 2008 Wallabies triumph 16-9 over the Springboks in Perth The Wallabies won their fourth straight game under New Zealand coach Robbie Deans to open their Tri-Nations campaign with a 16-9 victory over South Africa in Perth on Saturday. Australia scored the only two tries of the match, with Berrick Barnes sealing the win in the final minute with a neat 25 meter drop goal.The Springboks went into the game confident after their win last weekend, but from the outset looked weary and uninspired, with the Wallaby backrow trio of George Smith, Wycliff Palu and Rocky Elsom making them pay for their All Black hangover. They dominated the breakdown virtually all match, forcing 35 turnovers in all.It was a scrappy match that lacked any real flow, marked by mistakes from both sides with the Wallabies halfback combination looking rusty, and the Springboks generally not looking up for it. Some quality finishing, and the domination at the breakdown by the Wallabies was ultimately what made the difference on the night.“We were taught a lesson at the breakdown. We lost too many balls there and without the ball you cannot play. They also put us under pressure on defence.” Springbok captain Victor Matfield said afterwards.“The intensity definitely wasn’t up to what it was last week, but we still created three or four chances in the first half. If we took those then we probably would have had the boost we wanted, but we didn’t and the game got away from us.”Winger Bryan Habana blamed himself for the loss, after he had the Sprinboks beat chance to score when out wide, before being tackled by Ryan Cross and losing control of the ball.“Credit to Ryan Cross, but at the end of the day as a team we pride ourselves on execution and I wasn’t able to execute. We didn’t execute and that cost us the game more than the Wallabies beating us.”Wallaby head coach Robbie Deans was full of praise for his players in the way they handled the game.“The thing that I took a liking to was the pride, and as a result of that pride the willingness to engage and defend,” said Deans.“These guys are very proud, they love what they do, love representing Australia and that is a necessity when you have traffic coming the other way that is just as willing.”Australia host New Zealand in Sydney next week for the first of their Bledisloe Cup encounters.

Above Normal U.S. Temps Through the End of 2017

first_img By NAFB News Service – Sep 22, 2017 Above Normal U.S. Temps Through the End of 2017 The National Weather Service is calling for above normal temperatures in the contiguous – U.S. over the last three months of 2017. The National Weather Service says the greatest chance of warmth comes in the Four Corners Region between October and December. This could possibly mean areas to the east may need some springtime rains to be ready for the spring planting season. That fact may be made worse because of drought spreading across the Midwest, including Kansas, as well as drought conditions that remain across parts of the Northern Plains. The end of the year forecast calls for above normal precipitation in the Pacific Northwest. The forecast also calls for below-normal precipitation along the Gulf Coast and into Missouri. Below-normal precipitation is in the forecast for eastern Kansas and Oklahoma. Meanwhile, the rest of the country is equally split between normal, above normal, and below normal chances for precipitation.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleTaiwan Trade Team Meets with Indiana FarmersNext articleAre Those Big Corn Yields Really Out there?

TCU highlights five student organizations in first weekly showcase

first_imgWorld Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Lonyae Coulter Linkedin First-year experience at TCU Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ printA weekly showcase is giving students a new way to interact with organizations on campus. The ‘Student Organization Showcases’ are a weekly in-person opportunity for students to connect with and learn more about organizations they may have not know existed on campus. “Each week, we will feature five to six organizations in a casual and fun environment with snacks, giveaways and opportunities for students to enter in a raffle to win a prize,” said Dede Williams Vann, the director of student organizations learning & development. The showcase will be every Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Campus Commons. “Unfortunately this showcase will not have a virtual option. However, we provided a virtual organizations fair at the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters that featured 154 organizations and 113 organizations respectively,” Vann said. The first showcase was held on March 24, and the organizations that attended were the Chemistry Club, Rhino Initiative Club, TCU Links, It’s On Us and Gamer’s Guild. Claire Litchfield, president of TCU Links, showcased the organization and their goal, which is to link college students with the elderly community of Fort Worth. Normally, TCU Links goes to local retirement homes and spends time with those residents. Due to the pandemic, they have been doing letter drives. Litchfield was a supporter of the new showcases.  “I love the idea of having just a couple of organizations to showcase because it really puts the focus on those organizations instead of being overwhelmed with the organization fairs,” said Litchfield. Litchfield said TCU organizations should continue these showcases because it is a good opportunity for smaller clubs and any club trying to get their name out there. “It’s really important for freshmen and transfer students because it’s way easier to get to know people in a much smaller showcase rather than trying to visit 50 clubs at once at the normal showcases we would have,” said Litchfield.It allows these organizations to be active and engaged in the TCU community. “There’s a lot of positivity and feedback just from the TCU community about being able to see and get to know more organizations on campus…so they should continue to do this in the future”, said Harrison Holloway, the vice president of service and outreach for the Chemistry Club. Their next showcase will be next Wednesday, March 31. The following are scheduled for April 7, April 14, April 21 and April 28.  Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Twitter Linkedin Twitter Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ ReddItcenter_img ReddIt Previous articleWhat we’re reading: Biden taps Harris to oversee immigration issues, North Korea launches 2 missilesNext articleWhat we’re reading: President Biden holds first press conference, Suez Canal blockage continues Lonyae Coulter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU Theatre looks forward to second-weekend performances of Children of Eden Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ Facebook Frogs First organizers look forward to bringing back revamped program in the fall Facebook + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Members of the TCU chemistry club.

Photo Credit: Justin AltmanAward-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, who has directed and produced some of the most admired documentaries about the history of the United States, was announced today as the 2016 Tournament of Roses Grand Marshal. Throughout his almost 40-year career making documentary films, Burns, age 62, has been honored with countless awards, including 14 Emmy® Awards, two Grammy® Awards and two Oscar® nominations. Burns will ride in the 127th Rose Parade presented by Honda, themed “Find Your Adventure” on January 1, 2016.Tournament of Roses President, Mike Matthiessen, made the announcement at a public event at Tournament House in Pasadena, during which the 2016 Grand Marshal was revealed through a celebratory documentary video created by Burns — http://youtu.be/eUoebRg5_p8. “Ken Burns is a legendary figure and a great fit for this year’s Rose Parade theme, ‘Find Your Adventure,’” Matthiessen said. “We’re so honored to have someone like Ken, who has devoted his life to telling the story of America, lead the Rose Parade – America’s New Year’s Celebration® – that provides hope and joy to millions of people around the world.”The “Find Your Adventure” theme for the 2016 Rose Parade is a result of a unique partnership between the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the U.S. National Park Service, which will celebrate its centennial in 2016. Among Burns’s 2009 film, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea focused on the ideas and individuals that helped propel the parks and the National Park Service into existence. The series was filmed over the course of more than six years at some of the country’s most spectacular locales, from Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon and the Everglades of Florida to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska. The National Parks: America’s Best Idea won Emmy® Awards for “Outstanding Nonfiction Series” and “Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming,” as well as the 2010 CINE Golden Eagle Award.“The Rose Parade is an annual tradition woven into the fabric of America, so it’s such an honor to be chosen as the Grand Marshal,” said Burns. “I’ve never been to the Parade in person, so this will be a new adventure for me. I’m looking forward to sharing the experience with my family and all the fans of the Rose Parade who will be watching on New Year’s Day.”Burns quickly became known for his style of using archival footage and photographs in documentary films, characterized by slowly zooming in and panning to subjects of interest – deemed “The Ken Burns Effect.” Since the Academy Award nominated Brooklyn Bridge in 1981, Burns has gone on to direct and produce some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made, including The Civil War; Baseball; Jazz; Statue of Liberty; Huey Long; Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery; Frank Lloyd Wright; Mark Twain; Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson; The War; The Roosevelts: An Intimate History; which have all aired on PBS. For these accomplishments and more, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences honored Burns with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the News & Documentary Emmy® Awards in September 2008. Future projects that Burns has in the works include films on Jackie Robinson, the Vietnam War, the history of country music, Ernest Hemingway and the history of stand-up comedy. Burn’s next film, Jackie Robinson, made with his daughter Sarah Burns and her husband David McMahon, will air on PBS on April 11 and 12, 2016.Burns was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953. He graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1975 and went on to be one of the co-founders of Florentine Films.About the Pasadena Tournament of Roses®The Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that annually hosts the Rose Parade®, the Rose Bowl Game® and a variety of associated events. Nine hundred thirty-five volunteer members act as ambassadors of the organization and contribute upwards of 80,000 hours of manpower each year.

Tundra environments in the Neogene Sirius Group, Antarctica: evidence from the geological record and coupled atmosphere–vegetation models

first_imgThe Neogene Meyer Desert Formation, Sirius Group, at Oliver Bluffs in the Transantarctic Mountains, contains a sequence of glacial deposits formed under a wet-based glacial regime. Within this sequence fluvial deposits have yielded fossil plants that, along with evidence from fossil insects, invertebrates and palaeosols, indicate the existence of tundra conditions at 85°S during the Neogene. Mean annual temperatures of c. –12 °C are estimated, with short summer seasons with temperatures up to +5 °C. The current published date for this formation is Pliocene, although this is hotly debated. Reconstructions produced by the TRIFFID and BIOME 4 vegetation models, utilizing a Pliocene climatology derived from the HadAM3 General Circulation Model (running with prescribed boundary conditions from the US Geological Survey PRISM2 dataset), also predict tundra-type vegetation in Antarctica. The consistency of the model outputs with geological evidence demonstrates that a Pliocene age for the Meyer Desert Formation is consistent with proxy environmental reconstructions and numerical model reconstructions for the mid-Pliocene. If so, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet has behaved in a dynamic manner in the recent geological past.last_img read more
