DAY THREE AND FINALS SUMMARY- AUSTRALIA CUP 2004

Posted in yemiwbag on November 7th, 2019
first_imgDAY 3 AND FINALS SUMMARY- Well, it’s still a little chilly and the wind is still making my nose run, but at least it’s not raining. The finals were on and despite the cold weather, a good crowd turned out for the last day of competition. Competition in all divisions was tight and left no doubt that not only is touch improving in the Cup states but that 2004 was an enjoyable tournament for all. Both staff and players seemed to disappear throughout the day, reminded that `their vote does count’, as they headed for the nearest polling booth. As a side note, a muscley bald-headed champion Olympic swimmer called Michael Klim was seen jogging around the touch fields early last evening, maybe he should give touch a go? ATA staff have certainly enjoyed the trip to Melbourne, both for the tournament and Melbourne’s bevy of wonderful restaurant, massive pub meals, Italian, Vietnamese and the most delicious gelati just to name a few. SENIORS: The Senior Womens play-off for the title continued with the Victoria 30’s and NSW Country Seniors through to the final with wins over the EPTA (Elwood Park Touch Association) Senior side. The grand final saw NSW Country continue their good form with an easy 8-1 win over Victoria 30’s. NSW’s Doreen Kearney scored three touchdowns in their win. In the Mens Seniors division the Victoria 30’s were straight through to the grand final after finishing first in the Seniors division. Club side, the EPTA Seniors, also qualified for the Mens Seniors grand final after a tense 5-4 win over NSW Country. EPTA looked like they were about to cause an upset against their Victorian 30’s opposition, but the Victorian 30’s managed to hold on for a tense 5-4 win. OPEN WOMENS: After the completion of the round matches, the Womens quarter finals kicked off in style. NSW 23’s showed that being young is no hindrance in their quest for the Women’s title with a 4-1 win over Tasmania in their quarter final. NSW Open also gave their state the chance of making it an all NSW grand final as they progressed through to the semis with a 6-1 win over the Victorian 23’s. Last year’s champions, Victoria, defeated the ACT 23’s 6-0 and look strong as they go through to their semi against NSW Open, sure to be one of the matches of the tournament. SA made it a double loss for the ACT, all hope now resting on their men, as the ACT Womens Open lost 7-2 to SA. The Womens semi finals were expected to be tight, with the young NSW 23’s facing SA and NSW Open facing defending champions Victoria. NSW 23’s started well, leading 2-0 before SA answered with two quick touchdowns after half time to level the score. The NSW 23’s were able to match the physical nature of the SA game and managed to take the semi 4-2 in a great match of touch. NSW Open made it an all-NSW Womens grand final, after stopping defending champions Victoria 4-1 in their semi final. The battle between the 23’s and the Opens was sure to be entertaining! In the play-off for 7th Tasmania easily accounted for Victoria 23’s, while the ACT 23’s claimed 5th position with a 4-0 win over their ACT Open counterparts. The NSW Opens women led narrowly 3-2 at half time in a tight see-sawing half. After half time the Opens women showed their guile & experience with a convincing half of dominating Touch punctuated with another five unanswered touchdowns. They finished strongly with an 8-2 bottom line. OPEN MENS: The Mens semi finals were also decided after the completion of the round matches, with defending champions, the ACT, facing SA and Tasmania facing Victoria. After a tight first half the ACT kicked away to win 6-2, giving them a chance to defend their 2003 title from Adelaide. Victoria and Tasmania were also locked 2-2 at half time, before winning their place in the grand final 7-4. The ACT Men took a 5-2 lead into half time of the Mens final, which was a great display of touch football to finish the Mens competition. A 6-4 final score was an entertaining game with plenty of touch highlights for the crowd in Melbourne. A final congratulations to the ACT men and NSW women for taking the Open divisions titles and the Victoria 30’s men and NSW Country women for claiming the Seniors 2004 titles.

first_imgThomas Gravesen admits Everton feels ‘home’by Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveEverton hero Thomas Gravesen admits he feels the club is “home”.The Dane famously left Everton for Real Madrid.He told the Liverpool Echo: “Honestly it was like coming home. I always had a great relationship with the people of Liverpool – whether they were red or blue – and this time it was no different.“They’re proper people. Good, honest people. And football is just part of the culture in Liverpool. “From a very young age people are exposed to football in the city and they’re forced to pick a side. Or in most cases it’s picked for them!“I think the fact that it’s a two-club city plays a big part. And then you’ve got the history. There have been so many great sides down the years, for both Everton and Liverpool, and so many great players.“Obviously people talk a lot about the here and now, the current teams, but they talk about days gone by a lot as well.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Indigenous energy summit includes session on pipeline ownership options

Posted in uecgexfa on October 13th, 2019

first_imgCompanies mentioned in this article: (TSX:CN, TSX:KML)The Canadian Press CALGARY — First Nations that produce oil and gas in Canada will hear presentations Wednesday at the Indigenous Energy Summit on how they might take ownership of major energy projects, including the Trans Mountain pipeline.Steven Saddleback of the Indian Resource Council says a session will feature presentations on financing models that could be followed to allow ownership of major projects including the oil pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, B.C.When the federal government bought Trans Mountain and its controversial expansion project from Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. last year for $4.5 billion, it signalled that it did not intend to hold it for the long term and that potential buyers included Indigenous groups.Saddleback says other potential “long-term viable opportunities” to be discussed at the summit on the Tsuut’ina Nation outside Calgary include Canadian National Railway Co.’s proposal to make pellets from oilsands bitumen — dubbed “CanaPux” — for easier transportation to customers in Asia.The Indian Resource Council, which has about 130 members, is to hold its annual general meeting on Thursday.IRC member Bernard Shepherd, a councillor for Saskatchewan’s Whitebear First Nation, says Trans Mountain could be a good long-term investment and financing would not necessarily be an insurmountable obstacle.“Some of the other activities going on around the pipeline offer short-term jobs but I think actually investing in it, owning it, I think that’s where there’s a long-term revenue stream,” he said.He said he doesn’t think Indigenous ownership would necessarily help ensure the pipeline expansion is built, given the opposition from some environmental and Indigenous groups.last_img read more

Russian S400s delivery may be earlier than planned Turkey

Posted in xgzdvglq on October 12th, 2019

first_imgAnkara: President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the delivery of Turkey’s disputed Russian S-400 missile defence systems could be earlier than initially planned, Hurriyet daily reported on Wednesday. Ankara’s purchase of the S-400s risks US sanctions and has further strained already tense relations with Washington. US officials are concerned over the incompatibility of the S-400s with NATO military hardware as well as Ankara’s increasingly close relationship with Russia. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”The S-400 missile defence system was to be delivered in July, maybe we will bring this forward,” Erdogan told Turkish journalists on board his plane after a Russia visit, the newspaper said. Erdogan was in Moscow on Monday for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the S-400 purchase and joint coordination in Syria on the agenda. “This step that we have taken for our country’s security neither targets a third country nor does it give our sovereign rights over to a third country,” Erdogan said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsIn a bid to stop Turkey purchasing the S-400s, the US has offered to sell the US Patriot system but Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said this was not guaranteed. “If the United States does not want to sell the Patriot, tomorrow we can buy a second S-400, or another defence system,” he said during an interview with NTV broadcaster. He said Turkey did not only need the S-400s but also “other defence systems”. Last week, Washington put a freeze on its joint F-35 fighter jet programme with Turkey in protest over the S-400 deal. Turkey planned to buy 100 F-35A fighter jets, with pilots already training in the US.last_img read more

TMC helped BJP to gain ground in Bengal not CPIM Yechury

Posted in bacbbpks on October 12th, 2019

first_imgKolkata: CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury has refuted claims that it was helping the BJP get a foothold in Bengal, and asserted the Left will come out with “surprising results” in the Lok Sabha polls. He said it was the Trinamool Congress which had facilitated the BJP-RSS to gain ground in the state. “It is a blatant lie that CPI(M) workers are helping the BJP. It is a canard spread by the saffron party and the TMC. They are trying to create a narrative that in Bengal, the fight is between the BJP and the Trinamool. This is completely wrong. “I can assure you that the Left will come out with surprising results. Our performance will be like (football legend) Lionel Messi scoring a goal dribbling past his opponents,” Yechury said in an interview to a Bengali news channel on Thursday. The senior CPI(M) leader’s comments come in the backdrop of allegations by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee that the Left was working towards transfer of its vote share to the BJP in the fight against the TMC. The Left Front would get the support of the young generation in the polls, he said. “The TMC had forged an alliance with the BJP in 1998. In Bengal, after coming to power, the TMC ensured that secular forces are cornered in order to make space for the BJP,” Yechury said. He also said that if the people are allowed to vote freely and fairly, they would cast their ballots in favour of the Left.last_img read more
