Dan Parks and Scotland upset the Springboks at Murrayfield

first_imgSunday Nov 21, 2010 Dan Parks and Scotland upset the Springboks at Murrayfield Scotland put an end to South Africas Grand Slam hopes as they claimed a famous 21-17 win in the driving rain of Murrayfield on Saturday. The flow of the match was hampered by poor conditions, but the hosts handled them better and came out deserving victors.After being hammered by New Zealand the week before, a bruised Scotland shouldnt have been too tricky for the Springboks, but tactical naivet and poor execution proved their downfall as they were beaten at Murrayfield for the first time since a similar performance in 2002.There was no Plan B, and as has become fairly common under the reign of Peter De Villiers, a one dimensional Plan A. “These conditions level everything out but well done to Scotland,” said an unhappy Victor Matfield. “Everyone wants us to play more expansive, but with the weather the way it was it didn’t allow us to.“You can’t play a lot of rugby, so it was all about the guys making the least mistakes and putting the other team under pressure,” he said.They did manage to score the only try of the game, through Willem Alberts, but it was Dan Parks who took control and scored all of Scotlands 21 points which included six penalties and a drop goal. Coach Andy Robinson was thrilled with the result.“We’re hugely delighted with the victory. This victory is achieved by the players and the mindset they’ve brought into the week that they’re able to take on anybody.”“I think a number of young players have come of age,” said Robinson. “I thought Richie Gray really stepped up, particularly when Scott MacLeod went off. The pressure he put on the South African lineout, his defensive work and the hits he put in, but also some of his ball carries.”Springbok coach De Villiers was naturally disappointed and cited the weather and a few key calls by Stuart Dickinson as some of the reasons for the loss. “Scotland made use of it much better than us on the night, so well done to them,” he said, referring to the constant downpour.“The momentum at the beginning was with us and we were quite comfortable but we were nailed for a few things on our ball and it gave them a lift. Some of the refereeing decisions were puzzling, however we did not respond the way we should have done,” he added.Giant killers Scotland did the same thing to Australia last year in similar conditions. :: Related Posts :: Scotland The Brave upset the Wallabies at Murrayfield Time: 06:05ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Speleology Without Evolution

first_img“Steven Taylor, a macro-invertebrate biologist with the Illinois Natural History Survey at the University of Illinois, has spent more than two decades plumbing the mysteries of cave life,” an article said on PhysOrg, based on a press release from the University of Illinois.  The article describes his adventures in tight, dark spots in numerous caves, studying the bizarre creatures of the dark that live in these ecological “islands” cut off from the outside world.  The article did not mention evolution once.See?  Good science can be done without Darwin.  Whether Taylor believes in evolution or not is beside the point; the guy was observing, cataloging, and studying the effects of the above-ground environment on the creatures below ground.  He was adding to our knowledge and understanding.  Evolution had nothing to do with it (see quote, top right of this page).    Caves are fascinating environments that can provide interesting insight into ecology and natural variation and genetic drift (e.g., loss of vision in cave fish; see 04/09/2010, 01/08/2008), without any requirement to believe cave creatures are evolving upward in complexity.  In fact, there are good reasons to doubt Darwin when studying caves (e.g., 10/18/2004, 02/16/2007).  For a creationist view of cave formation and cave ecology, be sure to get The Cave Book by Dr. Emil Silvestru, a geologist who has spent much of his life studying caves (see Resource of the Week for 03/13/2010).(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

R3bn for rural development

first_img13 February 2009 “It is sad to see vast amounts of land go to waste when we have a food price problem.” In his Budget, Manuel also allocated R1.8-billion to the Women’s Agriculture and Rural Development initiative and the Micro-Agriculture Finance Institution of South Africa. The former is an initiative aimed at highlighting gender-related issues in agriculture and focuses specifically on land policies, programmes and projects, while the latter provides financial services for the development of small agri-businesses. Launched in September last year by Agriculture Minister Lulu Xingwana, the campaign urges communities to use all available land productively to ensure the country’s food security. Delivering his 2009/10 Budget speech in Parliament in Cape Town on Wednesday, Manuel said that the Illima/Letsema campaign, which distributes agricultural starter packs for domestic and communal food production to poor households, would receive R1.2-billion. The government has been urging South Africans, both rural and urban, to grow their own food in fields and vegetable gardens to fight food insecurity, unemployment, poverty and high food prices. Both initiatives were implemented as farmers, particularly women in rural areas, still experience problems when they need access to financial assistance as well as land and other relevant information, including their rights regarding land reform. “There was plenty of maize, beans and other vegetables, and except for drastic drought years, we would never go hungry,” he said. “The subsistence farming system has totally collapsed in many areas. One of this year’s Budget “Tips for Trevor” came from Lazarus Lamola from Polokwane in Limpopo Province. Lamola said that villagers used to plough their land and harvest enough food to last at least a year. Trevors’ tip Ensuring food security Boost for female farmers Lamola also suggested encouraging partnerships between commercial farmers and villagers to use their land for food production and sustenance. Source: BuaNews “Increasing agriculture output, raising rural incomes, supporting small-scale farmers and investing in rural roads are key objectives of [the] government’s rural development strategy,” Manuel said. Finance Minister Trevor Manuel has budgeted R3-billion for increasing South Africa’s agricultural output, supporting small-scale farmers and raising rural incomes in 2009/10, describing these as key elements of the country’s rural development strategy.last_img read more

Copps gets backing from exAFN chief in Liberal party president race

first_imgAPTN National NewsOTTAWA–A high profile First Nations leader is backing former cabinet minister Sheila Copps in her bid to become president of the beleaguered federal Liberal party.Ovide Mercredi, a former national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, wrote in a Dec. 8, 2011, letter to Copps that he was supporting her bid because the former deputy prime minister would help the Liberal party “work more closely with First Nations in our pursuit of freedom, fairness and justice.”Copps is running against four other people for the presidency of a party that was once the dominant force in Canadian politics. It was reduced to third-place status after the May federal election gave the Conservatives a majority government and the NDP the role of Official Opposition.“Sheila Copps has always fought injustice and stood up for her beliefs,” wrote Mercredi, who is currently a band councillor for Misipawistik Cree Nation in Manitoba. “Ms. Copps has shown that politics is a means to an end: A Canada that is free to pursue its destiny and fair in the treatment of all its people.”Copps’ campaign team issued a statement saying Mercredi’s endorsement “is a validation of Sheila’s commitment to First Nations and a better Canada for all.”Copps is facing Mike Crawley, Ron Hartling, Alexandra Medes and Charles Ward in the race for the Liberal party presidency which will be decided in Ottawa next weekend during the party’s biannual convention.last_img read more
