Crotty to miss Crusaders game against Lions

Posted on by

first_imgThe 28-year-old Crotty, who was expected to be named in Steve Hansen’s All Blacks squad for the three-test series on Thursday, suffered rib cartilage damage in the Crusaders’ 25-22 win over the Highlanders on Saturday.Initial assessments suggested he could be out for at least two weeks but the Crusaders’ assistant coach Jason Ryan said they needed to check a scan before they could determine the extent of the injury.”It will be a case-by-case thing,” Ryan said. “Cartilages can be pretty niggly, especially when you are sneezing or coughing.”They can take a while to settle down, but I am not too sure.”The Lions face the Blues at Eden Park on Wednesday prior to the match against seven-times Super Rugby champion Crusaders on Saturday, with coach Scott Robertson able to select his All Blacks for the game before they head into camp.Robertson had said last week it was likely they would field as close as possible to a full-strength side at Rugby League Park, but Ryan said they would also keep an eye on their All Blacks’ workload, especially captain Sam Whitelock.”Sammy is like the rest of them, he has got a few niggles,” Ryan said. “We have to be smart there, there is a bigger picture for the All Blacks. We don’t want to flog them.”Steve (Hansen) and the All Blacks coaches will want them fresh for the series, so we want to give everyone an opportunity in the 23 to play against the Lions.”last_img read more

Registered in Asunción a mansion of the businesswoman who took Ronaldinho to Paraguay

Posted on by

first_imgHowever, his lawyers maintain that López entrusted the processing of these documents to private managers in the Identification Department of the National Police, and that he is not responsible for the resulting falsifications.So far there are 14 accused in the case, which in addition to officials from the Identification Department splashes the Migration Directorate and the authority of the Asunción International Airport.One week imprisonedRonaldinho and his brother will celebrate tonight their seventh day of internment in the Specialized Association, a police headquarters that works as a prison and where he has received visits from several retired Paraguayan soccer players.The former international Nelson Cuevas, a football globetrotter, with stops in Mexico (Puebla) or Spain (Albacete), told Efe that Ronaldinho maintains the same activity as the rest of the inmates and that he saw him “well”. “He has the right to go for a walk, he is sharing with all the people in there. In that he has no problems (…) We talked for a while, in general terms it is fine, but you have to fight it in such a difficult situation”, Cuevas said.The two brothers are charged with an alleged crime of using false content public documents, with the expectation of a penalty of up to five years in prison.His lawyers presented an appeal document Thursday to the preventive prison ratified on Tuesday by a Paraguayan judge, who opposed the request for an outpatient release or house arrest, alleging danger of flight.The appeal appeals that “the legal assumptions are not given” so that the two brothers remain in prison and demand that the criminal resolution be revoked as “arbitrary, illegitimate and unfounded.”The defense of the former player maintains that those documents were a gift to which the two brothers did not give greater importance. Both were interested in establishing businesses in Paraguay, according to their lawyers. The Prosecutor’s Office raided this Friday a luxurious home in Asunción owned by Dalia López, the fugitive businesswoman who brought Ronaldinho Gaúcho and her brother to Paraguay, imprisoned for a week for entering with false passports in the South American country.The Public Ministry this week pointed to López as the alleged head of a network dedicated to “facilitating the preparation and use of false identity documents and passports.” This is part of the open investigation after Ronaldinho and Roberto de Assis Moreira entered Paraguay on March 4, through the Asunción International Airport.López was the president of the Angelic Fraternity Foundation, which the next day was going to present a free healthcare program for children in Paraguay, which was to be supported by the former Brazilian international.Prosecutors, along with personnel from the National Police, proceeded to search two properties of López this morning, one of them in the exclusive Asuncan neighborhood of Carmelitas. In this procedure, electronic equipment and a large amount of documentation were seized that would shed more light on the investigation, Federico Delfino, one of the prosecutors in the case, told reporters. The House, In which several soccer balls with the face of Ronaldinho were also found, it could also have served as the office of López’s company, supposedly dedicated to organizing air freight.López is declared in absentia and charged with an alleged crime of production and use of public documents with false content.Days ago, the Paraguayan Executive eliminated the legal status of the López foundation that Ronaldinho was going to promote with his presence. The Prosecutor’s Office points out that López was in charge of processing the false documents used by the two brothers, which he would have delivered to them in Brazil, weeks before they took the flight to Asunción.last_img read more

Boys’ Town, Waterhouse hopeful of signing Thompson

Posted on by

first_img He continued: “So I am not thinking about myself. It’s to see the youths really prevail. So it is not the issue of Arnett Gardens’ internal problems why I am saying this. I am doing this on my own terms.” On Thompson’s Facebook page, many comments suggest that he will return home to assist struggling Boys’ Town, who are floundering at the foot of the table. Others say he may go to Waterhouse FC to help new coach Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey lift that team from relegation troubles, but Thompson says that we will just have to wait and see. “Options have been presented, but I always want to win. I still think Arnett have a team to win the Premier League. We just have to fit things in, and sometimes you have to do things to really get the reaction from players. But we will be looking at how we can improve as we are looking in the direction where we belong. “But I have to look into things and be realistic. It (move) might be a possibility and it might not be. We just have to wait and see. But when the time come, you will know,” he said. ON HIS OWN TERMS Oneil ‘Bigga’ Thompson’s recent Facebook post that read “think I am going to leave Arnett Gardens in a few weeks” has been much cause for concern among Arnett Gardens fans, while another set of supporters are hoping the big centre-half will be joining their club. Thompson left his hometown club Boys’ Town FC for Trench Town rivals Arnett in January 2013. After four years playing at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex, the 33-year-old told The Gleaner that he would not mind taking his experience and leadership elsewhere. Since making the post, Thompson said that he has been flooded with offers, but he is still undecided if he will leave the 2014-2015 champions in the January transfer window.. “It’s a general statement. Sometimes, you have to take time out to address some concerns when things are going the way it is. But it all depends on the position you are in at time when you are making that statement as things can change. But I have not confirmed anything as yet, I haven’t really spoken to any other teams, but a few people have called me and are interested in the development of their team. “So where football is concerned, it’s about helping football in the country, not just your team, because one team alone cannot help the football in the country,” he commented. The recent players’ pay cut that has unsettled Arnett Gardens over the last month or so has not influenced Thompson’s decision to look at other options. “I am not affected by the changes. It might impact how we (the club) go about things. But in every organisation, you have changes and transformation. But I do not worry about money in a certain sense. I just like to know that I contribute and help the youths excel.”last_img read more

Trash tax

Posted on by

first_imgRe: “Trash-fee hike passes council committee vote” (May 11): Wendy Greuel, the City Council and Mayor Villaraigosa obstinately refuse to listen to all the complaints, i.e., multiple Daily News letters and editorials every day against raising trash fees to ostensibly hire more police. The politicians need to be stopped from abusing their power to raise maintenance fees to add to the general fund, which may and probably will not later be used for subjects that are correctly the subjects of taxation. They fear they cannot raise the tax for the same police issue, so they resort to trickery. Without voter approval, they can fee/tax homeowners for whatever they want and there is damn little anyone can do about it. Remember to vote against these money-hungry power grabbers. – Steven Hungerford If the City Council and mayor wanted this city to have more police officers, then it would have done so. This fee hike is unwanted and unwarranted. – Karen Jackson Valley Village LAPD successes Re: “Cop decree likely will stay in toto” (May 12): Of course, Michael Cherkasky and his consulting firm Kroll Inc. would like to see the full consent decree extended. In 2001, Cherkasky and his firm received the contract to monitor the consent decree’s progress and have been paid millions. Their contract expires this year. Under the leadership of Chief Bratton, the LAPD is more transparent, accountable and has made great strides in its community policing efforts. The LAPD should be commended for its successes, not criticized or punished. – Monica Harmon Los Angeles Eliminate civil service Re: “Acid dumped by school workers” (May 11): Some morons in the Los Angeles Unified School District throw out hydrochloric acid. Not only that, they throw out stopwatches and other new stuff. It just shows how incompetent these LAUSD people are. If they had real jobs, these people would be fired already. But as other Daily News articles show, government employees don’t get fired. The concept of civil service needs to be eliminated. Let the idiots get fired like people at real jobs do. Let Mayor Tony run the LAUSD. He can’t do any worse. Then the LAUSD people can move on to jobs in the Bush administration. They’ll fit right in. – Mike Kirwan Venice Need more laws Re: “Report: 43 placed near Disneyland” (May 11): Putting sex offenders near “the Happiest Place on Earth” is just one of many reasons we need more laws to protect our kids. I know of a heroin user that’s been arrested six times for prostitution and drugs who lives across the street from the front gate of an LAUSD school. Why do our lawmakers let this happen? – Rudolfo Campos Granada Hills Fats Domino Re: “Jazz Fest plays without Fats” (May 8): As a Southland teenager in the “Nifty ’50s,” a great pleasure was toolin’ over to Music City, Sunset and Vine, where you sometimes waited for more than an hour for a booth to hear Fats, Rick, Nat and Elvis. Groovy greats for free. Until Hurricane Katrina, I’d not realized that Fats Domino was still alive. Despite his not feeling well, and the fact he had to cancel his Sunday performance, just to see his smiling face brought me back to the days of my youth. At age 78, let’s hope this great talent still has many years ahead. – Eddie Cress Sylmar The honor system Re: “Prove you can vote” (Your Opinions, May 11): I agree with Ruth Watson that our “honor system” has many flaws when it comes to the right to vote. I worked the polls for several years and was horrified that there was no way we could ask if someone was legally allowed to vote. The area I worked in had many “voters” who spoke no English and we were required to provide interpreters if so requested. I must take it on faith the Registrar’s Office has thoroughly checked out anyone who has registered to vote, but I have little faith in them doing so. Because of this concern, I no longer work the polls, but I make sure that I do vote in every election. – Toni O’Brien North Hills How rude Re: “Level of discourse” (Your Opinions, May 11): Yikes, in regard to Walter Starkey’s churlish letter lambasting my opinion and my intelligence on the subject of the rude, self-righteous, biased, etc., tone of many post-May 1 letters in the Daily News, I must thank him for proving my point. His letter meets all the criteria and more; much more. – Eileen O’Neill West Hills Minuteman cartoon I think your rendition of the Minuteman on the May 7 Viewpoint cover was totally out of place. Realize that these people are attempting to do a job which our spineless leaders in Washington refuse to do, as we might “offend” someone on the other side of the border. Is it true that those same “leaders” in Washington are informing the Mexican government of the whereabouts of the Minutemen along the border? If so, isn’t that called treason? (Offering assistance to the enemy – doesn’t an “enemy” include someone who enters our country illegally?) – Roy H. Stratton Woodland Hills TV wasteland I applaud reader Bette Simons for speaking out about the sad state of television these days – but my opinion differs somewhat slightly: today’s television isn’t any more risque or offensive than present-day society tolerates – it’s just become intolerably uninteresting, unimaginative and downright boring. Let’s face it, unless you happen to enjoy dramas about police work or the medical field, an uninspired karaoke contest that’s now inexplicably in the midst of its fifth season or a group of total strangers “being themselves” (this so-called “reality television”), you’re pretty much out of luck. Thank heavens for the creators of shows like “Family Guy,” one of just a handful of remaining cutting-edge shows that represents the last vestige of creative television. – Tom Atkins Sherman Oaks Affordable housing Affordable housing is an endangered commodity on the brink of extinction. Along with rights accorded us through laws comes responsibilities. Landlords proclaim their rights, but abrogate their responsibilities. This glutting tide of condominiums does not create housing where none existed before. Our City Council should introduce ameliorative constraints as the “cost of doing business.” Without comprehensive, even visionary, leadership from our council, there is no equalizing force. We aren’t clamoring: “House us.” Just keep it possible for us to do it for ourselves with a modicum of dignity. – Carol Garfield Valley Village Hasn’t been proved Nothing bad has ever been proved to have been caused by global warming. You’ve heard the expression, “Keep your theology off my biology”? Well, I say, “Keep your politics off our science.” – Richard W.

Mistakes costly as College of the Redwoods falls to Feather River

Posted on by

first_imgEureka >> It’s well known that regardless of the sport, too many mistakes on defense will cost a team wins.That was precisely the case for the College of the Redwoods baseball team on Saturday, as three errors led to a four-run sixth inning for the visiting Feather River Golden Eagles, turning a 3-0 CR lead into an eventual 6-3 loss.“We just had a defensive lapse that inning,” Redwoods head coach Brad Morgan said. “We make a couple plays and we’re out of that inning and are still up 3-0…It …last_img

Rearranging Deck Chairs on Sinking Planet Theories

Posted on by

first_imgSupernovas come in handy as theory rescue devices.Fortified iron: Here’s a puzzle: moon rocks have measurable levels of iron-60, Space.com says. But they shouldn’t. Iron-60 has a half-life of 2.6 million years, far too short to have been there billions of years ago when the moon supposedly formed. To keep the moon old, astronomers propose the following auxiliary hypothesis:Now, scientists have discovered unusually high levels of iron-60 in moon rocks gathered during Apollo missions 12, 15 and 16 between 1969 and 1972. This finding suggests that debris from a nearby supernova sprayed Earth and the rest of the solar system in the past few million years.Have they thought through the consequences on life if a supernova sprayed the Earth between 1.7 and 2.6 million years ago, when human ancestors were roaming Africa in the evolutionary scheme?Magnetic magic: One thing we do know is that Earth is better off with its moon. A sun-like star named Kappa Ceti is showing astronomers that a magnetic field is critical for life, Astrobiology Magazine says. Space.com points out that a magnetic field would have been crucial when the Earth formed to keep it from getting sterilized by the superflares that young suns are prone to. Now, PhysOrg adds that the moon–among its many benefits for life—now appears to “play a major role in maintaining Earth’s magnetic field.” Actually, this proposal turns out to be a theory rescue device for another problem:To maintain this magnetic field until the present day, the classical model required the Earth’s core to have cooled by around 3,000° C over the past 4.3 billion years. Now, a team of researchers from CNRS and Université Blaise Pascal suggests that, on the contrary, its temperature has fallen by only 300° C. The action of the moon, overlooked until now, is thought to have compensated for this difference and kept the geodynamo active.Blasting gold: Where does gold come from? Science Daily proposes that it comes from supernovas, but “At this time, no one knows the answer.” The puzzle goes for other heavy elements, too. A downstream problem is how it arrived in sufficient quantities on the surface of Earth to cover the tomb of Tutankhamen and other ancient works of art (see 10/20/15 and 3/17/13).Missing dwarfs: Is it dwarfs or dwarves? Whichever, they’re missing. Science Daily tells about “the missing brown dwarfs” that are too large to be planets but too small to be stars. They should be all over the place, but the sky turned up empty in a search. It’s crisis time again. Planets are supposed to be composed of heavy elements that formed in supernovas. Now, the supernova deficit impinges on a star-formation deficit.The scientists concluded that there should be many more brown dwarfs in the solar neighbourhood that are yet to be discovered and that will fill the observed gap. If they are right, this would mean that star formation fails significantly more often than previously thought, producing one brown dwarf for every four stars. In any case, it appears, the established picture of the solar neighbourhood and of its brown dwarf population will have to be rethought.Rearrange the chairs again: The problems reported above are subsumed in a bigger problem reported by New Scientist. The headline, “How two tiny dots defy the history of life and the solar system,” indicates that zircons from Australia’s Jack Hills formation are throwing theories into a tizzy, and along with that, the notions of a Late Heavy Bombardment so trendy in solar system formation models. “When it came to explaining how these things all got started, we thought we had it more or less worked out,” Colin Stuart writes, indicating that prior confidence was unwarranted. “It was a nice story,” he laments. His chart shows how these zircons require scrapping the LHB, moving planetary migration half a billion years earlier, and moving the origin of life 300 million years earlier. But with those corrections, other things stretch and break. How did the Earth cool so fast? How did life get started so quickly? When were the large impact basins on the moon formed? “Future work” will be required to put the new pieces together without breaking something else.Modern science marches on. Aren’t you glad we have such wise and competent wizards to explain reality? The reality of the 1970s, of course, never was reality to begin with. Today’s reality may be tomorrow’s fiction. There are an infinite number of ways to rearrange the deck chairs, so these adjustments are likely to continue far past our lifetimes. Each generation will be presented with a comforting picture of reality to keep the funding flowing to the scientific wizards. Occasional anomalies are good for this system; it keeps them looking busy. If they ever figured everything out, there would be nothing more to do but keep climbing, until they reach the summit, where the theologians have been sitting for centuries.
