The French midfielder is interested to join an English Premier League side in the next season. According to the sources, two Premier League sides Manchester United and Everton are going to target the star French midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window.Advertisement The star midfielder was really upset after missing out from the squad of the French National side. He was in the plans of Didier Deschamps. However, he did not make it as he was not regular in the starting lineup of Paris Saint Germain. So, the problem between Adrien Rabiot and the club management of Paris Saint Germain increased quite a bit in the next few months. After that, the French midfielder decided not to extend his contract with the Ligue 1 Champions.Advertisement Adrien Rabiot had a wish to move to the Premier League from the beginning of his career. His wish might get fulfilled in this season as two Premier League Giants Manchester United and Everton are looking interested to sign Rabiot in this summer. The Red Devils need a replacement of Ander Herrera and the French midfielder might just be the ideal replacement of him in the midfield.Olivier Giroud admits feeling happy about moving from Chelsea to ArsenalAdvertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more

Drop goals; flared trousers of rugby, back in fashion at WCup

first_imgYet an extra-time drop goal has twice been responsible for winning a World Cup final, with Joel Stransky’s effort sealing 1995 hosts South Africa’s 15-12 victory over New Zealand in Johannesburg before England’s Jonny Wilkinson broke Australian hearts in 2003 when, with just seconds left, his sweetly struck kick sailed over to secure a 20-17 success.In the most recent World Cup final, fly-half Dan Carter’s 69th-minute drop goal took New Zealand into a seven-point lead before they eventually beat Australia 34-17 at Twickenham.This year marks the 20th anniversary of a remarkable individual and tactical feat — Jannie de Beer’s five drop goals during South Africa’s 44-21 World Cup quarter-final win over England in Paris.The much-neglected art has again been in vogue at the current World Cup in Japan. France beat Argentina 23-21 after Camille Lopez came off the bench to drop the winning goal with 11 minutes to go, while South Africa’s Handre Pollard and Yury Kushnarev of Russia have also slotted drop goals.– ‘Monsieur Drop’ –Generally, when it comes to tries and penalty goals, the attacking team has to do something right — hold their passes, create an overlap — and the defending team something wrong, like missing tackles or killing the ball.But the peculiar cruelty of a drop goal, as demonstrated by de Beer’s Test-record haul at the Stade de France, is the defending side may do very little wrong at all and yet still concede points.“It feels now like a bad dream,” England great Martin Johnson wrote in his autobiography, recalling the defeat to South Africa.“His (de Beer’s) kicks were going over from miles out and we just couldn’t get enough pressure on him to try to affect his accuracy.”South Africa fly-half Handre Pollard scored a drop goal at the Japan Rugby World Cup against New Zealand © AFP / Kazuhiro NOGISo with all these high-profile examples, why is that it can seem as if the drop goal has disappeared from sight between World Cups?Well for much of rugby union’s history a drop goal and a try were both worth three points.Indeed so proficient was Pierre Albaladejo, a France international of the 1950s and 1960s, he was nicknamed ‘Monsieur Drop’.To encourage more attacking rugby, the value of a try was increased to four points in 1971 and five in 1992.The advent of seven points for a converted try and the arrival in the professional era of multi-phase forward play, that would eventually see defending teams concede a three-point penalty, led to a decline in the drop goal’s popularity.Better pitches and more precise training have also been responsible for a huge increase in placekicking distances and success rates for penalties.“Drop goals used to be the first option, not a last option,” former Wales fly-half Paul Turner, a noted drop goal expert, told the Rugby Paper.“I soon realised that forwards loved the drop goal. They saw it as their reward for exerting pressure and gaining territory.”Someone might want to tell that to Scotland fly-half Finn Russell.Scotland’s 27-3 tournament-opening loss to Ireland in Yokohama on Sunday meant that in his 47-Test career Russell has still to kick a drop goal, for all he’s been involved in several matches where the Scots have struggled to turn pressure into points.Given he plays his club rugby in France, for Paris-based Racing Metro, perhaps he should drop in for a chat with Albaladejo?0Shares0000(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jonny Wilkinson kicked a last-gasp drop goal to win the Rugby World Cup for England in 2003 © AFP/File / Odd ANDERSENKOBE, Japan, Sep 25 – Rugby fans sometimes ask, ‘Whatever happened to the drop goal?’ and then every four years along comes a World Cup to remind you of their worth.Drop goals are rather like flared trousers — commonplace in the 1970s but rather less familiar in the decades since.last_img read more

Newcastle will cash in on star man IF they lose Premier League survival fight

first_img1 Georginio Wijnaldum in action for Newcastle Newcastle will be willing to listen to offers for star man Georginio Wijnaldum should they get relegated to the Championship.The Dutchman has been a shining light in an otherwise dismal season for the Magpies, who are without a win in their last five and sit three points adrift of safety.Wijnaldum, however, has impressed since he signed from PSV Eindhoven last summer, scoring nine goals in 33 appearances.But according to De Telegraaf, Wijnaldum is unlikely to hang around at St James’ Park if they go down and Newcastle are preparing themselves for a wave of bids for the attacking midfielder.Newcastle paid £14.5m for the 25-year-old last summer and will be looking to recoup the vast majority of that fee should they decide to sell.last_img read more

Judge told to clarify his ruling in suit

first_imgPALMDALE – A judge has been ordered to reconsider his ruling in a lawsuit involving a boy whose leg was punctured as he tried to jump over a discarded Halloween decoration left on a sidewalk outside Juniper Intermediate School. After a three-day trial, Antelope Valley Superior Court Judge Frank Jackson found that the seventh-grader was completely responsible for his own injury. But the 2nd District Court of Appeal ruled that the judge should have considered the boy’s claim that school officials were negligent in supervising him. “The court erred because appellant’s absence of due care did not preclude the court from additionally finding, if the evidence so warranted, that the district failed to adequately supervise him,” the three-justice panel said in a 2-1 ruling. The boy’s attorney said he was pleased with the decision. The boy denied having tried to jump over the object and his attorney argued on appeal that there was insufficient evidence for the court to find that he did. The appellate justices said they were bound by the findings of the trial judge, who believed a school bus driver’s testimony that he saw the boy fall while trying to leap over the object. The ruling notes that schools have a duty to supervise students, in part because society presumes youthful inexperience leads children to foolish, or even dangerous, conduct. Thus, the fact that a child’s injuries might result from “boisterous behavior” does not preclude a finding of negligence by the school, the ruling said. “As students flowed out of the gate, several dozen children walked past the metal object without incident,” the ruling said. “… (T)hat so many children encountered an object susceptible of causing injury with no supervising adult doing anything to remove the object or shoo away the children permits, but does not compel, the inference that the adults were inattentive.” If it finds a breach, the court must then determine what portion, if any, of the appellant’s injuries were caused by that breach of duty and the damages suffered by the boy. “In remanding, we do not mean to suggest how the court should resolve the foregoing questions, only that they cannot be ignored,” the ruling said. as he was leaving the campus (661) 267-5744 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Kids are liable to jump over things and a school would still have liability.” The attorney for Palmdale School District said the justices merely want Jackson to clarify his decision. “This is not a decision that remands the matter back for a new trial. This is a decision that remands the matter back for the court to determine whether the district breached its duty to supervise the appellant. The two justices want Judge Jackson to rewrite his decision and to address their concerns,” attorney Martin Carpenter said. The decorative piece punctured the boy’s shin Nov. 2, 2001, when he tried to show off to his friends by jumping over it , the ruling said. What exactly the decoration was, and where it came from, wasn’t clear. Containing chicken wire and black and orange paper, and about 5 feet long, it was left on a sidewalk near where Juniper’s buses wait for pupils, attorneys said. last_img read more

World Oceans Day in SA

first_imgThe great white shark, a protected speciesin South Africa. (Image: Brian Skerry,National Geographic) Gansbaai, on South Africa’s south-westerncoast, is a well-known shark hotspot.(Image: Chas Everitt)Janine ErasmusSouth Africa commemorated World Oceans Day and the declaration of 2009 as the International Year of the Shark by highlighting the country’s continuing commitment to shark conservation.Water and Environmental Affairs minister Buyelwa Sonjica hosted the commemorative event held on 8 June in Gansbaai (Afrikaans, meaning “bay of geese”) in the Western Cape, situated just south of Hermanus.The national theme for 2009 was “One Ocean, One Climate, One Future”, a message that highlights the need for careful consideration of the oceans in any climate change strategy.World Oceans Day falls in South Africa’s national environment month of June, which also focuses on climate change in 2009.The ocean and the atmosphere are closely linked, as the ocean generates oxygen and soaks up excess carbon dioxide – some experts say as much as 40% of all carbon dioxide produced by human activity. The ocean also provides millions of people with food and a livelihood, and its health and the future survival of all living creatures are inextricably bound.This is the first observation of World Oceans Day, which was declared by the United Nations as 8 June each year, starting in 2009 with the official theme of “Our Oceans, Our Responsibility”.Shark conservationSonjica described South Africa’s continuing progress towards a better understanding of the importance of sharks.“For several years we have committed to study these animals both for improving our understanding of their often secretive behaviour and for understanding our marine ecosystems,” she said. “South Africa, in addition to our research efforts, has also taken management measures to reduce the impact of fisheries on sharks.”Sonjica announced that South Africa is to terminate all pelagic shark fishing in its waters by the end of 2009. No new permits have been granted since 2005 and South Africa is currently in the final stage of phasing out the industry altogether.There are seven companies operating with special permission and the ministry plans to give these fisheries rights in swordfish and tuna longline fishing only, with sharks as a bycatch.The ministry has also reduced the number of right holders in the demersal, or bottom-dwelling, shark longline fishery to just six, and will monitor populations of the relevant species to determine whether further reductions are needed.Dignitaries at the event were treated to a cage dive, where they were able to see the sleek creatures at close range in their own habitat. They also learned about shark tagging and the numerous ways in which tagging helps scientists gather valuable information about the movement and population of sharks.Shark attractionCage diving with great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) is Gansbaai’s primary tourist attraction, and the town is viewed as a major great white hub. Whale watching is another tourist drawcard, with southern right whales often seen in the waters around the town.Ecotourism contributes at least US$6.1-million (R50-million) every year to South Africa’s GDP. Sonjica added that proposals currently under consideration may soon see the shark, together with the whale, marketed as part of the big seven – that is, the big five plus the two marine mammals that bring so many visitors to South Africa’s shores.Dyer Island, 8km off Gansbaai’s shore, is a nature reserve for marine birds and a well-known site for shark conservation efforts.Protected speciesSouth Africa has always led the way in shark conservation. In 1991 the country became the first ever to classify the great white shark as a protected species and to ban outright the killing of the magnificent creatures within 320km of its coastline.South Africa was followed by Namibia, Maldives, Malta, the US, and Australia in introducing legislation to protect sharks. The great white is currently classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).Other sharks under threat include the black shark, the Chilean angel shark, the dusky shark, the leopard shark and the great hammerhead. There are over 200 species of shark on the IUCN Red List of endangered animals.A number of shark conservation programmes operate in South Africa, among them the White Shark Trust in the Dyer Island area, the White Sharks Projects based in Kleinbaai, south of Gansbaai, and Oceans Research based in Mossel Bay.The Natal Sharks Board has promoted the conservation of sharks for over 40 years. In mid-2008 the SOS Foundation (Save Our Seas) opened a shark research and education centre in Kalk Bay, south of Cape Town on the Cape peninsula.National plan of actionThe great white has gained an almost mythological reputation as a ruthless killer, a state of affairs perpetrated by the media, but the truth is that this predator does not specifically target humans.Experts believe many of the attacks happen through sheer curiosity, with the shark biting the unfamiliar object in the water just to see what it is. In most cases the shark releases the victim immediately, and the majority of fatalities occur through subsequent loss of blood.As predators, sharks also play a vital role in the balance of the marine ecosystem. However, the animals are threatened by wholesale slaughter of their numbers for shark fin soup, commercial longline fishing and the associated tragedy of bycatch, and habitat loss.South Africa plans to publish its national plan of action for the conservation and management of sharks, based on the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation‘s 1977 international plan of action, later in 2009. The international document encourages countries to draft their own national plans and contribute to the worldwide effort to save the shark.“This will place us as a world leader in shark conservation and management where we rightly belong,” said Sonjica, adding that strategies likely to be covered by the plan include research on sharks and shark attacks, marine protected areas and the protection of sharks within those areas, and collaboration with other countries in shark research.Do you have queries or comments about this article?
