LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scotland ended their 2017 Six Nations with three wins after defeating Italy 29-0 at Murrayfield. It was a victory built on momentum and muscle and one that ends Vern Cotter’s reign as Scotland head coach on a fine note.Banished were the memories of Scotland’s hammering at the hands of England a week previous, with hard carrying in the rain and a sense of adventure when things brightened up. They deserved their bonus point for the manner in which they exploited quick ball and slammed into the gainline, but this was also a weak showing from Italy. The second try they gave up came as the ball was batted towards Matt Scott in a panicky flap, the first, third and fourth the products of riding attackers backwards towards their own line.The visitors were hard done by in not getting a penalty try after 50 minutes, with the Scots persistently giving away penalties in front of their own line, but that was their only real opportunity – with a penalty advantage and John Barclay in the bin they had two great chances to make their numbers count and butchered them both. For too long in this one they were passive, almost content to come off second best in many collisions and it must have been frustrating to the extent of infuriating for Conor O’Shea to see his attack flounder.As for Scotland‘s coaches, there was a hint of tears in Cotter’s post-match interview but there will be no grandstanding from him, no lengthy soliloquys. He came to do a job and after this one, it looks pretty clear he has achieved a great many of his goals….Hard day at the office: Sergio Parisse silences his sideWHAT’S HOTScotland’s Six Nations – Three wins out of five is a great return for the hosts who have – Twickenham horror show aside – played throughout this championship with a swagger and brio that has been missing for some time. With Cotter departing, can they continue this? In truth it doesn’t really matter – the fans have had plenty to cheer over the last few months and they will enjoy revealing in this.Playing in the rain – Yes greasy conditions made for a lot of kicking and one-out runners, but actually in this weather, if a catch was made cleanly or you had quick ball with a runner around the corner, there were yards to be made. So while Italy focussed on exits and a driving maul, Scotland played with tempo. It bore fruit often.Leading well: John Barclay, who received a team yellow card, carrying hardYoung men growing up – Zander Fagerson had his best game of the tournament here, looking like an old veteran. We know how good Hamish Watson can be and his performance was as action-packed as we’ve come to expect. But Scotland will take great pleasure in knowing how far their young tighthead and even scrum-half Ali Price have come in the space of this year’s Six Nations.WHAT’S NOTItalian penalty kicking – Carlo Canna had a day to lament from the tee, missing three kicks in the first half that would have kept Italy in touch with their hosts. For all the skilful young fly-half has the potential to offer when he has the ball in space, at the moment he cannot give Italy what they really need in games like these: points.Schizophrenic set-piece – If either side got a straight throw in at the lineout it made for a more fluid game – indeed when Italy got their maul rumbling it looked dangerous. But Ornel Gega’s throwing was as predictable as a toddler during a BBC News interview and Scotland’s second try stemmed from a stolen lineout. It was no surprise when he was hooked at half time. Man of the day: Finn Russell, the man of the match, scores Scotland’s first Day to forget: Carlo Canna kicked poorly and was subbed off after an hourOver-lenient officiating – Scotland got a team yellow after repeated infringements in the third quarter, constantly chucking a spanner into the Italian lineout. Fair enough, but how in the name of the game did the referee not award a penalty try? It felt for all the world like a bottled call.STATISTICS53% – Vern Cotter’s final win percentage as Scotland head coach, making him the most successfulScottish boss in the professional era.24 – The number of years since Scotland have nilled an opponent in the championship.5 – The number of lineouts lost by Italy.Scotland: S Hogg; T Seymour, H Jones (M Scott, 26, D Weir 74), A Dunbar, T Visser; F Russell, A Price (H Pyrgos 54); G Reid (A Dell, 52), R Ford (F Brown 65), Z Fagerson (S Berghan, 65), G Gilchrist (T Swinson, 57), J Gray, J Barclay (capt), H Watson, R Wilson (C du Preez, 48).Tries: Russell, Scott, Visser, Seymour.

Editor’s note: Fascist elements from the Svoboda organizations have been playing an increasingly active role in a protest movement in Kiev of the country’s wealthiest sectors, who are demanding that Ukraine orient its politics and economy toward the imperialist European Union.

SHARE More Optimism for Upcoming Talks Between China and the U.S. Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Sep 24, 2019 Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, who’s leading China’s efforts in the trade talks with the United States, will be back in Washington next week. An Agri-Pulse report says he’ll be across the table from U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. Earlier this week on the sidelines of the United Nation’s General Assembly in New York, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said, “We’re looking forward to those conversations.”Deputy Ag Secretary Steve Censky said the conversations that took place last week with Chinese officials were “positive and productive.” Several media reports say Chinese buyers purchased between 600,000 and 1.5 million metric tons of U.S. soybeans on Monday for delivery between October and December. The U.S. Soybean Export Council reports that China relaxed import tariffs for the purchases to make sense, given a price spread that favored U.S. soybeans.Mnuchin admitted Monday that it was a White House decision to call off a planned trip a Chinese delegation was going to take to Montana and Nebraska this week. Mnuchin said officials “didn’t want any confusion around the trade issues.”China has recently been buying a lot of meat. The Wall Street Journal says their recent purchases are pushing up the prices of beef, pork, and poultry around the globe. Meat buyers are increasing their activity after African Swine Fever hit the country hard and reduced the size of the world’s largest pig herd by more than a third. Domestic pork prices have jumped in China and meat imports are rising in response and placing a strain on global meat supplies.For example, Brazil poultry shipments to China have jumped 31 percent compared to last year. Retail prices for chicken breasts, thighs, and legs have increased roughly 16 percent. European meat buyers are paying five percent more for pork because more of their domestically produced supplies are heading to China.American shoppers haven’t felt the impact yet, but that may change. Futures prices recently rose after Chinese officials say the country could exempt some U.S. pork and other agricultural goods from punitive tariff increases. Many American meat companies have watched as European and South American competitors have raced each other to supply China’s pork needs.

News Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison News An appeal court today reduced French-Vietnamese blogger Pham Minh Hoang’s jail sentence from three years to 17 months but upheld an additional sentence of three years of house arrest after his release from prison. As Hoang has been detained since August 2010, he is due to be released from jail on 12 January.“We are obviously pleased by the reduction in Hoang’s jail sentence but we deplore the decision to keep him in prison for another seven weeks and, above all, the decision to keep him under house arrest for the next three years,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “This sentence violates the principles enshrined in Vietnam’s constitution.”At today’s hearing, the appeal court judge said he had taken account of Hoang’s “recognition” of “his errors,” his request for clemency and his pledge to sever all ties with Viet Tan, an outlawed pro-democracy party. The judge said he also took account of his parents’ age – they are both in in their 90s – and the desire to “maintain good relations between France and Vietnam.”Hoang was sentence to three years in prison and three years of house arrest last August on a charge of trying to overthrow the government.__________________________________________________Call for transparency and respect for constitution at blogger’s appeal hearing11-28-2011Reporters Without Borders urges the court that will hear the blogger Pham Minh Hoang’s appeal tomorrow to quash his conviction on a charge of trying to overthrow the government. Hoang, who has French and Vietnamese dual citizenship, was sentenced in August to three years in prison and three years of house arrest.“Hoang was just expressing his views on subjects of public interest in Vietnam, a right guaranteed by the country’s constitution,” Reporters Without Borders. “Nonetheless, he has already been held for more than a year. He must be released and his conviction must be overturned. We reiterate our appeal to the French government and international community to put pressure on the Vietnamese authorities to free Hoang.”The press freedom organization added: “The journalists and observers who want to attend tomorrow’s hearing should be able to do so. The authorities must allow this in order to ensure the transparency of the appeal proceedings. We also urge the court to heed the articles of the constitution that absolve Hoang of all of these charges.”Article 43 of the constitution gives citizens the right to participate in public affairs and matter of concern to society, and to discuss local and national issues. Article 69 guarantees free speech and media freedom. Citizens have the right to receive information, to assemble, to form associations and to demonstrate as long as they respect the law. Article 71 protects the physical integrity, privacy, health, honour and dignity of citizens. No one may be arrested without a court order or properly certified warrant except when caught in the act of committing a crime.Hoang, who used the blog name of Phan Kien Quoc, wrote about education, the environment and Vietnam’s sovereignty disputes with China. He participated in a campaign against bauxite mining by Chinese companies in Vietnam’s central highlands and took part in conferences on Vietnam’s claims to the Paracel and Spratly Islands. A university teacher, he also gave extra-curricular training in leadership to his students and is a member of the pro-democracy party Viet Tan.He was sentenced to three years in prison and three years of house arrest by a Hanoi court on 10 August on a charge of trying to topple the government. The court found that he had “undermined national security” and “besmirched the country’s image.” Arrested on 13 August 2010, Hoang spent almost a year in pre-trial detention. Under Vietnamese law, this should be discounted from the jail time he has to serve.Armed security agents tried to intimidate journalists during the trial and to dissuade them from covering the proceedings. His wife, Le Thi Kieu Oanh, was not allowed to attend the trial and it is still not clear whether she will be allowed to attend tomorrow’s appeal hearing. When his mother asked to attend, she was told there were no more seats left in the courtroom.On 26 October, Reporters Without Borders launched a campaign aimed at drawing the attention of potential visitors to Vietnam to the media freedom situation and censorship there. At least three journalists and 17 netizens are currently detained in Vietnam.

If it transpires that the problem has not been rectified by the landlord, the tenant may then make a written complaint to Limerick City and County Council regarding the standard of their rented accommodation.

1. Many arthropods depress the freezing point of their body fluids (supercool) to avoid freezing at subzero temperatures. This is normally a seasonal response and is achieved by the production of specific biomolecules including cryoprotectants, a cessation in feeding, and the removal or masking of ice-nucleating material from their bodies.2. In springtails, the mid-gut is shed during moulting which results in the complete evacuation of the gut and a concomitant reduction in the supercooling point (SCP). We determined whether this non-adaptive explanation could account for the variability observed in the SCP of summer-acclimatized springtails.3. Moult preparation resulted in a highly significant reduction in the SCP. Feeding after moulting restored the SCP to previous high levels.4. Significant differences in SCP between springtails sampled from vegetation and the soil surface, on different days, and at different sites on the same day were also documented, demonstrating that not all variation in SCP is environmentally induced.5. Investigations of the responses of the SCP to environmental variation in springtails and other arthropods should take into account the effects of moulting before solely adaptive conclusions are drawn.
