Super Rugby 2011 highlights – Round 2

first_imgTuesday Mar 1, 2011 Super Rugby 2011 highlights – Round 2 Round two of Super Rugby got under way in the backdrop of the devastation in Christchurch, with the Canterbury vs Hurricanes game actually being called off. There were six other matches though, so here are highlights of each of those.This year the hype around Super Rugby has been intensified with the name change and of course, the extra team. Fans who don’t normally watch it have been expecting miracles, but at the end of the day it’s the same tournament and is well followed around the globe.Those in the UK have been disappointed with Sky Sports’ coverage at times, and those outside of the main rugby territories have been somewhat stranded this year with little or no means to watch the games.With that in mind, I’ve put together a once off package of highlights that cover each and every game, showing the main scoring points and one or two extra moments from the matches.What that does is allows you to catch up with everything that happened, and gives Rugbydump time to focus on the more interesting stuff for the rest of the week. Short clips of funny moments, big tackles, perhaps the odd brilliant try.You know the drill, so if you spotted anything in Super Rugby (or indeed any other tournament on the weekend), please do get in touchwith match details and the time of an incident, and RD will attempt to do the rest.So here you go, short highlights of all six matches are below, brought to you in the form of a playlist. Simply click the button to the right of play to bring up the menu, or hit play to sit back and watch every game’s clip. Once one ends, it’ll jump automatically to the next.

Eight injured after lightning strikes Florida beach

first_imgWFTS (CLEARWATER, Fla.) — A Lightning struck at a Florida beach on Sunday, leaving eight people injured, police said.The victims were struck at Clearwater Beach near Tampa on Sunday afternoon, according to the Clearwater Police Department.The department said one person was hit by the strike directly and rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition. Another person was treated for burns and three others were hospitalized as a precaution.At least three others were injured, but refused treatment at the scene. Lightning was also blamed for at least three fires in the area on Saturday.The Clearwater Fire and Rescue said it’s common for people to stay on the beach to watch the storms pass, but it’s dangerous.“Beachgoers should take cover and go to a safe place when lightning and thunder are present. As a reminder, Clearwater Fire and Rescue uses the phrase: when you hear the roar, go indoor,” the fire department told ABC affiliate WFTS-TV.Storms moving through the Midwest following days of record heat sparked several lightning storms. The volatile weather resulted in two others being struck by lightning in Pennsylvania and Illinois on Sunday.A 16-year-old boy was struck by lightning at a soccer tournament in Aurora, Illinois, according to Chicago ABC station WLS-TV. The boy remained conscious and was taken to a local hospital.A boy was also struck by lightning in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Sunday afternoon. The boy was taken to the hospital in unknown condition, according to Philadelphia ABC station WPVI-TV.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Gazprom to supply gas via Power of Siberia in excess of planned amounts

first_imgIn particular, exports of Russian pipeline gas from the Chayandinskoye field to China via the Power of Siberia gas trunkline were discussed Gas metering station of Power of Siberia in Amur Region. (Credit: Gazprom) A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Dai Houliang, Chairman of the Board of Directors of CNPC, took place today via a video call.The parties reviewed a wide range of issues related to their current and future cooperation. In particular, exports of Russian pipeline gas from the Chayandinskoye field to China via the Power of Siberia gas trunkline were discussed. It was noted that gas is being supplied consistently and in excess of the planned amounts. In October and the first twenty days of November, the daily average volumes exceeded the contractual amounts upon requests from the Chinese party.On November 12, the surplus in daily volumes hit a record high of 25 per cent. In line with the Sales and Purchase Agreement, Gazprom is preparing to further ramp up the gas supplies in 2021. The parties also considered the possibility of increasing gas deliveries via the Power of Siberia pipeline by an additional 6 billion cubic meters after the supplies under the existing Agreement level off.Also discussed were the projects for pipeline gas supplies from Russia to China via the Power of Siberia 2 gas pipeline across Mongolia, via the western route, and from Russia’s Far East.Stable and flexible gas supplies are essential to achieving China’s environmental goals that call for reduced use of coal by industrial and residential consumers.The meeting also touched upon joint efforts in the areas of underground gas storage, gas-fired power generation, sci-tech cooperation, use of gas as a vehicle fuel, staff development, standardization, and equipment certification.

Auction figures fall but there are positives!

first_imgAuction activity reported in the EIG’s (Essential Information Group) March newsletter looks back at residential auction activity in February and the preceding periods. Comparing the figures to those of February 2016 shows a significant reduction in all measures, with Lots offered, 3183 – down by 15.3 per cent at 3,183, Lots Sold down, 2438 by 16.7 per cent at 2438 and the Total Raised being 16.6 per cent down at £403million.“Last year, buyers and sellers were racing to complete before the new Stamp Duty rates came into effect.”However, said David Sandeman, “The comparison to last year is unbalanced due to a major spike in sales as buyers and sellers raced to complete before the impending stamp duty changes, which subsequently came into effect on 1st April 2016.“Next month’s newsletter should provide a better indication of the market’s progress (and to a greater extent in May), as properties sold within the comparative periods will be subject to the same SDLT rates.Notwithstanding this, positive gains are evident in many northern regions of the UK for the rolling quarter, where lower house prices mean that stamp duty is less of an influencing factor.”Record set at Auction House London Auction House LondonAuction House London is celebrating selling the largest number of lots it has ever sold in a single auction, along with its highest-ever priced property.In its last sale on 22 February, the company raised almost £22m (£21,806,250) by selling 85 lots, including the star lot of the day, a six bedroom semi-detached Victorian house in St John’s Wood (pictured), which sold above its £3m guide price for £3.25m.Auctioneer Andrew Binstock said, “Another spectacular set of results for Auction House London. Not only are we now the official auction room for Countrywide stock in London, our consistent success means that we are becoming the go-to auctioneer in the capital.“Our star lot, 14 Wellington Road in St John’s Wood, is the highest priced lot we’ve ever sold under the hammer and was purchased by an owner occupier at a price above the predicted sale price of several local agents – which just goes to show that this type of high-end property can do just as well at auction as the more traditional lower value stock.”Vendors ‘blown away’ at SDL Bigwood auctionSDL Bigwood’s first auction sale of 2017, held on the day Doris struck, went down a storm at the Holte Suite, Aston Villa, raising £14.7 million with a success rate of 84 per cent.Gurpreet Bassi, partner and head of auctions for the Midlands, said, “The crowds were happy to battle their way in, despite the wind, so much so that the room was busier than I ever seen it, to the extent that on health and safety grounds security were operating a ‘one in, one out’ policy on the doors.“At one point, we were considering moving the auction to the football pitch!”Properties from Bridgend to County Durham were snapped up.As usual, houses proved a hit, with 374 Fox Hollies Road, Acocks Green, a three-bedroom semidetached, proving the most popular lot in the auction with over 300 viewings. It sold for £225,500 off a guide of £90,000 while a flat in Edgbaston, was purchased for £71,000 off a guide of £25,000.“It really was a great day,” said Gurpreet. “We and many of our vendors were extremely happy with the results.”The Birmingham sale was the second leg of a hat-trick of SDL Auctions, the others being Chester and Derby – which raised over £20 million.Confident start for Andrews & Robertson’s first sale of 2017Andrews & Robertson have got the year off to a flying start with their first auction of 2017 held at The Montcalm Hotel, London. A strong catalogue offering buyers a diverse selection of residential and commercial property for occupation, investment and development attracted competitive bidding across the board and raised £28.7m; nearly double that of their first auction of 2016, with 80 per cent of properties sold and an average lot size of £455,355.The largest lot sold under the hammer was a freehold three floor detached house on Endlesham Road in Balham (below) currently arranged as nine letting rooms. Guided at £1,500,000, the property attracted a high level of interest in the room and sold for £1,660,000.Budget Blues? Not at Network AuctionsThe budget may have been a disappointment for many but across London from Westminster, the Network Auctions auction saw the biggest attendance ever at the Grosvenor House and a healthy volume of serious bids.25 lots sold producing income of over £9.4m, a sales success rate of 77p per cent.Star results included: Walton on Thames (pictured): A freehold investment apartment block sold for £2,600,000.Aylesbury: Two adjoining lots with a combined guide price of £760,000 sold for £870,000.Swansea: A derelict cottage with a guide price of £7500 sold for £41000 with bids by phone, internet, proxy and in the room.Toby Limbrick, Managing Director of Network Auctions said, “This sale showed that the market remains strong for sensibly guided property and that private buyers and investors are willing to commit and buy.“The market is strong for sensibly guided property and private buyers and investors are willing to buy.”Our growing network of partner agents combined with our auctions in London and Birmingham is producing excellent results and in this sale we had lots from over twenty different counties attracting great interest.”The next auction is in London on 3rd May.Auction House celebrates Budget Blues? Not at Network Auctions auction Award-winning brand Auction House is reporting the second-best month in its ten year history. In February the group sold 466 lots sold from 602 offered – a success rate of 77.4 per cent – which raised £57.7m.Roger LakeDirector Roger Lake says, “Sellers are keen to choose the speed and certainty of the auction method and buyers are genuinely eager to purchase. We are assisting more people buying for their own occupation – such as first-time buyers and improvers – who are helping to move auctions into the main stream.Auction House is opening a sales room in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire – an area not previously well-served by auctioneers, with an auction scheduled for 7th April, and it will hold its first auction in Exeter, Devon on 27th April.Estate raises £342,500 – for charityA six-bedroom property in Wordsworth Avenue, Cardiff, sold at an online auction for £342,500 on 3rd March, and all proceeds will go to charity. The deceased estate attracted plenty of interest with a record number of 98 bids and sold for £117,500 or 52 per cent over the starting price.The six bedroom semidetached house is bright and spacious with large glazed windows located throughout. The property benefits from a garage and a good sized garden to the rear of the house.Jamie Cooke, Managing Director of IAM Sold, said, “The response to this sale demonstrates how the modern method of an online auction can attract competition and create a bidding war. The price and the starting bid also encouraged a lot of viewings, all of which were completed in one week prior to the property going online which helped to intensify the bidding war on this particular property. It’s great that the proceeds from the sale are going to charity and we’re pleased for the vendor that it attracted such a high bid.”Strong start to the year for AllsopAllsop’s residential auction team got off to a strong start with its February sale which raised £64m with a success rate of 80 per cent, which is expected to rise further as interest continues.The 281-lot catalogue offered buyers huge choice, both geographically and by property type, and attracted strong interest from its initial release. The average lot size was £330,000.Auctioneer Gary Murphy (above) had to call for bidders to come to the front of the hall to make room for those who could not get in through the doors at the rear.Gary Murphy, Partner at Allsop, said, “This was one of the largest crowds we have seen. In particular, there were far more new faces than we remember in recent sales. Many were there for one lot only and were obviously new to the auction method. It would seem that the market, for auction stock at least, has overcome the jitters that were evident during the latter half of last year. The stamp duty increases that have hit buyers of investments and second homes have now become an accepted, if unwelcome, cost. Life goes on.”Network Auctions 2017 auction news Allsop Andrews & Robertson auction Auction House Auction House London auctioneers auctions SDL Bigwood charity auction April 5, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

UK: HMS Illustrious Begins Training off South Coast

first_img View post tag: off View post tag: Training View post tag: begins October 21, 2011 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Naval View post tag: coast The flight deck of Britain’s aircraft carrier hums and throbs again as two months of rigorous training begin for HMS Illustrious off the South Coast.Lynx helicopters from 702 Naval Air Squadron in Yeovilton and Merlins of 820 Naval Air Squadron in Culdrose have joined Lusty in the Channel ahead of seven weeks in the hands of the Navy’s most exacting training organisation.The veteran Portsmouth-based warship – converted to a commando and helicopter carrier during her £40m refit completed in July – is about to embark on Operational Sea Training off Plymouth.The seven-week package tests the 750-plus men and women aboard on everything the 22,000-tonne ship might be expected to deal with in the real world, for in the new year she’ll be Britain’s on-call helicopter carrier, taking over from HMS Ocean which is currently deployed east of Suez.As well as preparing Illustrious’ ship’s company for any travails they might encounter, the seven weeks in the hands of the world-renowned Flag Officer Sea Training organisation allow Fleet Air Arm air and ground crews to conduct vital at-sea training.In the case of 702 NAS, it’s a chance to give trainee Lynx fliers a taste of operating from a warship at sea on their long path to front-line duties with 815 Squadron.And for the Merlins of 820 it’s a chance to reacquaint themselves with their traditional role of operating en masse from a flat-top (with its sister unit 814 NAS, 820 has typically been a ‘carrier squadron’).The helicopters’ presence means Lusty’s deck is in operation pretty much at all hours of the day – indeed last night the handlers and air engineers were working into the small hours stowing the Lynx and Merlin in the hangar.And by day… well the FOST staff have lots of ‘fun’ in store: dealing with battle damage, crashes on deck, machinery fires, tracking and destroying incoming aerial threats among other challenges.All of which is bread and butter to veterans of Operational Sea Training, of which there are many aboard the carrier, but there are also many in Illustrious’ ship’s company for whom this is their first taste of the FOST experience.“For all the sailors on board there’s undoubtedly a sense of excitement and eagerness taking Illustrious through her first Operational Sea Training since emerging from refit a few months ago,”said Capt Jerry Kyd, the carrier’s Commanding Officer.“We will be put through a very demanding training period up until Christmas, honing our fighting skills, before we become the UK’s on-call helicopter carrier early next year.“We are ready for both the training – and whatever the Government asks us to do in the future.”[mappress]Source: royalnavy, October 21, 2011 View post tag: Navy View post tag: UK Training & Education Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: HMS Illustrious Begins Training off South Coast View post tag: Illustrious Share this article View post tag: South UK: HMS Illustrious Begins Training off South Coast View post tag: HMSlast_img read more
