The battle for the 2023 Rugby World Cup enters the home straight

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The decision as to who will host the 2023 World Cup will be made in November and the bidders are making a big push The race to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup is on and there are just three runners fighting for the honour.The 15th of November is D-Day for Ireland, South Africa and France as that is when they will learn the fate of their bids to host the Rugby World Cup in 2023 and World Rugby have started a tour of all three countries to have a look at their facilities. They have already been to South Africa and will take trips to the other two countries in the next couple of weeks.Bids have to be formally submitted by 1 June then the three countries will present to the World Rugby Council in September and then it will depend on who gets the most votes in November.Next in line: Excitement is growing in Japan for the 2019 World CupThe magic number is 19 – there are 37 votes to be cast so 19 thumbs-ups gets you over the line. Top tier nations get three votes each, no me neither, and second tier nations get one so representatives from the three countries will be getting in the ear of the likes of the United States and Canada. The exact mathematics of the voting could change between now and November though.But how do the three bids look at the moment?Liam Neeson, who was one of the stars of the 1986 movie The Mission, has been drafted in to narrate Ireland’s promotional video and the Irish are on a mission to land this one. And they have got the tools to pull it off.The Irish propose to use 12 grounds, most of which will need little tinkering with, the travel infrastructure is in place and the Irish have not had a home World Cup, although they did stage games in 1991 and 1999.French front: Sebastien Chabal is pushing France’s bid for 2023The stadia range from 18,000 capacity Kingspan arena in Belfast to the magnificent Croke Park, in Dublin, which holds over 82,000 and is set to host the final. ‘Croker’ has been home to Test rugby before – it staged Ireland games between 2007 and 2010 whilst the Aviva Stadium was being built.Croke Park is, of course, a GAA ground and used for traditional Irish sports such as hurling, and the IRFU are proposing to use another seven GAA venues and if you are not familiar with them they include the 45,700 capacity Páirc Uí Chaoimh, in Cork, and Casement Park in Belfast which holds 34,000. It would not have happened 20 years ago because of the tensions between the Gaelic games rulers and the IRFU – and an Irish World Cup would not happen without the GAA grounds. With them on board it looks a real possibility.The bid has full support of the government and recently the Irish team said they had already been promised support from 40 per cent of the voters. They just need another push to land the big one but things change very quickly in the murky world of rugby politics. Then there was the row about the post-match function at the Aviva Stadium when France played Ireland in the Six Nations – the clear inference was that the Irish could not put on a World Cup. It is only going to get messier and there is always the bottom line to consider.It is not just about stadia, access and infrastructure – the tournament is expected to raise a large dollop of cash as well, England’s organisers had to guarantee £80million last time, but from this distance, and with a romantic head on, Ireland should probably get the nod. Whether they will or not is another matter completely.center_img Fond memories: The 2015 Rugby World Cup was the best yetAt least the Irish have got the unequivocal backing of their government. In South Africa, where the rulers refused to back a bid for the 2022 Commonwealth Game, the government have only just given it the green light to bid for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.The Commonwealth Games decision looked bad news for the rugby bid particularly as the rugby authorities had been told that the lack of progress in transformation meant they would not be getting any government backing.But that all changed this week when sports minister Fikile Mbalula said the transformation issue was in hand and the Boks could bid. One major plus is they staged the 1995 World Cup, a triumph, but that could also be a minus if voters decide to give someone who has not had the tournament before a go. And who knows when Mbalula will change his mind again?But South Africa has the venues, they also hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the country is in love with rugby and it is a great place to visit for fans.United: World Cup winner Francois Pienaar and SA sports minster Fikile Mbalula. South Africa will bidFrance hosted the World Cup in 2007 and it was a brilliant success apart from a small hiccup of a transport strike on the day of the final, but we all got there in the end. The trains actually work most of the time so getting around between games is easy enough for travelling spectators, they have got plenty of decent grounds and the country is used to putting on big events.The 16-year gap between 2007 and 2023 might count against them. Yes, England hosted games in 1999 then staged the 2015 World Cup but they were not the actual hosting country back in 1999 – whereas France were.Bernard Laporte, who is now President of the French Federation, is right behind the bid and has already been dropping hints to the people with the votes claiming the French bid would knock the other two out of the park.

Does hurricane season have you worried?

first_img 1 COMMENT I went in to the Save A Lot grocery store yesterday in Apopka, and I thought they were going out of business, as that huge long frozen food freezer/cooler down the right side of the store was completely void of any food, and totally empty. The same for the freezer/coolers along the right side wall with the doors that open, to get ice cream sandwiches, ice cream, sausage patties, etc. All empty! Then across the back of the store, where the fresh meat is kept, the meat was stacked up in packs, setting out of the cooler refrigerator, and looked like it was being moved. I asked what is going on, and found out that a storm with bad lightening had ruined the refrigerator, freezer units. If this is any indication of what happens during regular thunderstorms, we are in trouble, as far as the hurricane season! I was told this happened last Monday, and that corporate headquarters still hadn’t done anything to get them repaired or replaced. People were coming in to shop, and some walked right back out the door. I wonder if generators would have helped, or not, I don’t know. I sure am not looking forward to more hurricanes. I am thankful we have gotten our big trees down though. It is so hard to find food, ice, gas, water, batteries, toilet paper, tarps, you name it, during and after the hurricanes….it is a circus! I wonder about the flooding problem there on Piedmont Wekiva Road and at the two hotels on 436 and how that is going to be, if we have more hurricanes?

This allocation meets existing funding commitments to Big Society Capital, who will use it to leverage substantial private co-investment, to maximise the impact of these funds.Around £90 million will be invested to projects that help disadvantaged young people into employment. These initiatives will be jointly designed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the Department for Education and Big Lottery Fund with input from young people.The remaining £55 million is set to be awarded to financial inclusion and capability initiatives which will tackle issues such as problem debt, as well as improving access to financial products and services for those on lower incomes.Out of the £330 million, up to £50 million will be made available for good causes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and will be distributed by the Big Lottery Fund. Each devolved administration will then decide how these funds are used.The funding for social investment in England will also include £25m for Big Society Capital and £10 million for Access – the Foundation for Social Investment, its sister organisation. This is on top of the last £100 million to complete the £400m originally committed by Government back in 2012. Big Society Capital has outlined how it will use the money in a blog on its site, and states that the new funds will enable it to deliver larger and more innovative solutions in two key areas of the strategy it announced last July: supporting communities to improve lives, and providing homes for people in need.Tracey Crouch, Minister for Sport and Civil Society, said:“By unlocking millions of pounds from dormant accounts for a range of good causes, we can make a real difference to lives and communities across the country.“This is part of the Government’s commitment to building a fairer society and tackling the social injustices that hold people back from achieving their full potential.“I am grateful to the banks and building societies, as well as Reclaim Fund Ltd, for their work to free up these funds for good causes. Working in close partnership with the financial sector and civil society, we are determined to help create a country that works for everyone and build a Britain fit for the future.” Advertisement Tagged with: Big Lottery Fund dormant accounts Finance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis29 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

They need to take the opportunity to release this once-in-a-lifetime windfall to support strategic initiatives and interventions that could transform the whole not-for-profit sector in the years ahead.”  155 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 5 January 2018 | News Government to unlock £330m from dormant accounts to tackle societal challengeslast_img read more

FDA Holding Up Indiana Hemp Plan, Possibly Delaying Commercial Production

first_img FDA Holding Up Indiana Hemp Plan, Possibly Delaying Commercial Production SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Dec 11, 2019 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News FDA Holding Up Indiana Hemp Plan, Possibly Delaying Commercial Production FDA Holding Up Indiana Hemp Plan, Possibly Delaying Commercial ProductionHemp production in Indiana jumped from 15 acres in 2018 to nearly 3,000 acres in 2019. 2019 was still a “research year” for around 100 farmers as SB516, or the “Hemp Bill”, didn’t make it through the statehouse until early May. Indiana State Chemist and Seed Commissioner Dr. Bob Waltz told HAT back in May that he was anticipating anywhere from 700-1,000 hemp licenses to be issued in 2020.Mark Boyer, a hemp grower from Converse, IN and a member of the Indiana Hemp Advisory Committee, says there might be a wrinkle in that plan as there is a holdup now with the Food and Drug Administration accepting Indiana’s hemp plan.“The state is ready to move forward with this plan. It’s just been the FDA dragging their feet. So, we had high hopes going into 2020, it just is not looking like it’s going to come to fruition. However, there will be hemp grown in Indiana albeit, again, for research.”Boyer will join Waltz, Purdue Hemp Specialist Marguerite Bolt, and Midwest Hemp Council President Justin Swanson Tuesday at 1pm at the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo to answer questions and clear some things up about hemp production.“There’s a lot of misinformation and a lot of misnomers involving hemp production, and the growing of hemp, and the market of hemp. We’re going to see what we can do to clear some of those out…hemp is very exciting. I think that maybe the potential is there, if we can build these markets, that hemp can possibly, down the road, became a viable option as a rotational crop with our corn and soybeans here in Indiana.”One message that Boyer hopes to convey to potential growers on Tuesday is that he would love to see new producers come on board, but they need to know what they’re getting into.“Don’t plant, or even consider planting, more acres than your particular operation can afford to completely lose. At this point, the markets are so sketchy, and this crop is so difficult to grow, I would say you’re more likely to end up in the red than you are the black.”Again, Boyer and crew will speak at the seminar stage at 1pm Tuesday at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

St Michael’s – last resting place of Ellen Arthur

Just across from the Granary Building, the cemetery is behind the BDO offices on Michael Street and many people using the Charlotte Quay Car Park pass it every day.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Director of Limerick Civic Trust, Dr James Ring, points out that the Trust has been responsible for St Michael’s Graveyard, which was one of the very first projects it became involved with in 1986.“St Michael’s is arguably one of the least known graveyards in Limerick and the odd thing about it is that it is in the city centre – with the majority of the people who pass it every day and probably admire the beautiful stone boundary wall, not knowing what’s behind it”.Promising not to deliver a history lesson on the cemetery, Dr Ring says:“The noted Limerick historian, Kevin Hannon, has already done so in a brilliant article in the Old Limerick Journal but I will say that it is worth a visit to this small graveyard.“There is so much Limerick history attached to it – such as it being the burial place of Ellen Arthur, whose tomb may be lost but her name lives on in Ellen Street, which is named after her.“When the Civic Trust got involved with the graveyard in the early 80’s, it had suffered the best part of a century of neglect.“Now, after a lot of hard work from the Civic Trust it has been relandscaped and is cleaned and maintained on a weekly basis”.The restored graveyard was formally opened in 1986 by the then Deputy Michael Noonan. who at the time, was the Minister for Industry and Commerce.“Whilst many of the tombs and headstones are now gone, some are preserved, but at least the souls buried there will have some monument to their memory, and regardless of whether or not we know who is buried here, this graveyard and those buried here, are still part of our history.“Next time you are in town, take a look, it’s worth seeing.”Dr Ring is very pleased with the latest project undertaken by the Trust, the Ballinacura Weston Grotto.“Over many years this grotto, which means so much to the community in the area, was vandalised and destroyed.“However, thanks to a great team effort between ourselves, Limerick City Council, Limerick Regeneration and local residents, we have turned this into a grotto the whole of Limerick can now be proud of.“There was a superb party atmosphere on the day of opening, enhanced by the brilliant CBS Pipe Band and I was delighted to see my old school represented on the day – apart from the odd deserved detention, I have nothing but good memories of CBS.“When the grotto was finished a lot of people from the area thanked me for getting the Civic Trust involved and some people complained that they didn’t like the look of the statue after it was painted.“I guess you have to take criticism with praise in this game but I will leave the debate to you all.“I think the grotto and Our Lady herself look great but have a look yourselves!“Next month I will take a look at the two bridges that Limerick Civic Trust can be credited with establishing in Limerick – the Sylvester O’Halloran Bridge by the Potato Market, and The Guinness Bridge on the canal.” Print WhatsApplast_img read more

The Bench of Justice P. V. Asha specifically observed, “There is no reason for any doubt that Government would not come forward with orders for re-opening of the Schools as and when the situation becomes normal/ ensuring the protection of the health of the children.” Plea before the Court The Petitioner, whose daughter is a student of 9th standard in a Government Higher Secondary School, stated that the order issued by Government on 24th November 2020 by which other educational institutions except schools and technical education institutions were allowed to function is in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution of India. It was next contended by the petitioner that the students are prevented from meeting their teachers and clear their doubts or seek assistance for studying their portions. It was further submitted that the students have to rely on unpredictable internet connections for pursuing their education and they are left with less equipped means to prepare for year-end exams for the promotion to the next academic year. State’s submissions On the other hand, the Government Pleader pointed out that the Government has been issuing orders from time to time taking stock of the situation. It was informed to the Court that classes for 10th and 12th standard of the schools under the General Educational Department as well as students of the Colleges have already been permitted to function with strict restrictions, that too in different batches and different timings for the students of the very same class. Court’s observations The Court noted that the Government had issued orders closing Schools due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the larger interest of public which includes students community also. Further, the Court said, “Right from April, 2020, orders are being issued by the Central and State Governments in relaxation of orders on lock down, having regard to the situation prevailing in the country, based on the opinion of the experts in the field.” The Court also observed that both the central and State government are striving for the revival of the pre-covid state, step by step and so the contention of the petitioner relying on Article 14 of the Constitution of India is absolutely untenable. Importantly, the Court remarked “I am of the view that when the authorities, who are equipped with the expertise in these matters are issuing orders relaxing the restrictions at regular intervals, a decision as to when the schools can start functioning in its full swing, protecting the interest of all concerned would 7 also be issued by them, in accordance with the prevailing conditions.” In view of the above-said observations, the Court opined that that interference of the Court under Article 226 was absolutely unwarranted and thus, the writ petition was dismissed. In related news, the Madras High Court on Thursday (21st January) refrained from issuing a direction to the State government to permit schools across the State to commence physical classes for all students as the threat of COVID-19 had not died down completely and the vaccination drive had just begun. Last month, the Karnataka High Court had directed the state to consider opening up schools on a regular basis in taluks having less number of Covid-19 cases, rather than adopting a uniform policy for the entire state. A division bench of Justice B. V. Nagarathna and Justice Nataraj Rangaswamy had said, “State to apply its mind on whether in phased manner schools could be opened on regular basis having regard to the number of covid-19 cases in a particular taluk, rather than adopting a uniform policy for the entire state.” Last month, the Allahabad High Court had expressed concern over re-opening of schools in the State of UP amid the ongoing pandemic. It observed that there is a risk of teachers and/ or students being infected if the health protocols are not followed properly. Case title – Jacob John v.
