2019 Rugby World Cup Quarter-final: Japan 3-26 South Africa

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Keep track of events in Japan via our Rugby World Cup homepage.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Bloody-minded South Africa squeeze the life out of Japan and progress to the World Cup semi-finals In a nutshellThey made us wait for their strike, using brutal forwards and a monstrous maul, but South Africa are through to the semi-finals of the Rugby World Cup. 2019 Rugby World Cup Quarter-final: Japan 3-26 South AfricaHead-to-HeadPlayed – 3Japan wins –1Ireland wins – 2Most Recent Meeting – Japan 7-41 South AfricaMost of us will remember Japan rocking the Boks in 2015, when Karne Hesketh’s late try secured the Miracle of Brighton – a 34-32 shock to rugby’s system.But in the build-up to this World Cup, the two sides played again, in Kumagaya. The Springboks scored six tries to Japan’s one, dominating despite a yellow card for cynical play for Francois Louw late on. Makazole Mapimpi got a hat-trick, while Kotaro Matsushima got a consolation try.The match was also notable for the Boks for deliberately practicing a certain style of game, kicking ball away so they could work on their defending.Did you know?Japan are playing in their first ever quarter-final.South Africa have never failed to make it out of the pool in a World Cup.Coming into the quarter-finals, Kotaro Matsushima has scored the most tries in test matches in this calendar year, with nine.South Africa’s have won 20 matches and lost four in northern hemisphere World Cups. One of those four was against Japan, in Brighton.Handre Pollard is  South Africa’s all-time leading point-scorer, ahead of Percy Montgomery.center_img The hope was that they would physically hammer the hosts, and they did come out on top, but it took an hour to break them down. But they built a score and in a game of fine margins and stubborn play, it was sensible stuff from the South Africans.Japan have been incredible in this world Cup and no matter what come out of the tournament with credit, but their race was run and it felt at times during this game that they were sprinting to stand still. For all the movement and hard carries, South Africa soaked it up and rebounded the energy back on the Japanese.The first Springboks try came straight off first phase at set-piece time as Faf de Klerk fed Makazole Mapimpi. The wing shoved a hand-off at Yu Tamura, created the space and powered to the line.It will be mentioned in the coming days that South Africa could have been down to 14 men for the duration of the game, had the officials decided that Tendai Mtawarira’s tip tackle on opposite number Keita Inagaki at the ten-minute mark was more malicious than just a yellow-card. Wayne Barnes opted only to go for a sin-binning, though, and the hosts could only Related: Should Tendai Mtawarira have gotten a red card?There were plenty of kicks and more than a few knock-ons during a period of harem-scarem stuff and Lukhanyo Am butchered a certain score, but South Africa were happy to bide their time.Handre Pollard chipped away with penalty kicks and when Faf de Klerk was sent racing through for a second try off the back of a scary-strong maul, the Japanese resolve was gone.At the double: Wing Makazole Mapimpi on the attack (Getty Images)They have been a breath of fresh air all tournament, keeping us all guessing and hitting every run as hard as humanly possible. But the counter-attacking game of South Africa relished in that. Mapimpi’s second try was testament to this. Captain Siya Kolisi went in hard on a ball-carrying Asaeli Ai Valu and from the spilled ball. Pollard hit Willie le Roux and the full-back checked it off to his back-three mate. The lethal Mapimpi was set free again. He bounced away down the touchline, scoring to make it 21 unanswered points for the Boks.Japan stuck at it but this was as clinical as it gets.Sunday was a nervy old day, but the South Africans wilkl be confident heading into their semi with Wales.Star manSometimes you have to appreciate the numbers. Mapimipi is now joint-top try scorer in this competition, with five scores, and he looked dangerous every time he touched the ball.For all the physical exertions of the pack, Mapimpi did as much as anyone to suck defenders in and he looks hungry.Handre Pollard deserves credit for guiding his Boks side through this one calmly, and 11 points is a solid showing – he kept the scoreboard ticking over. But in a game all about control, the brief moments of excitement Mapimpi created are worth a nod.The ReactionJapan coach Jamie Joseph: “At half-time the boys were a bit down there were a few niggles in our group, but, at the end of the day, I am just so proud of my team – the courage, the tenacity the sheer determination those last two tackles show just how tight a group we are and I really must take my hat off to the team.” “Secondly, I’d really like to thank the fans. We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t have the support of the whole country, they have been absolutely marvelous.“I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved at the World Cup, we’ll accept that, we’ll enjoy that a little later on but I’m really disappointed for the players because they give so much to the group and they give so much to the country at this World Cup, I’m just a little disappointed.”South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus: “We’ve come a bit but we want to try and go all the way. Now we’ve got Wales they are ranked higher than us and they got a win against France this weekend, we’ll start tomorrow on them, but we’ll enjoy tonight and we know the next two weeks will be tough.”The TeamsJapan: Ryohei Yamanaka (Lomano Lemeki 59), Kotaro Matsushima, Timothy Lafaele, Ryoto Nakamura, Kenki Fukuoka; Yu Tamura (Rikiya Matsuda 47), Yutaka Nagare (Fumiaki Tanaka 71); Keita Inagaki (Isileli Nakajima 47), Shota Horie (Atsushi Sakate 72), Jiwon Koo (Asaeli Ai Valu 63), Luke Thompson (Wimpie van der Walt 54), James Moore, Michael Leitch (captain), Pieter Labuschagne (Amanaki Mafi 11), Kazuki Himeno.Pen: Tamura 20.South Africa: Willie Le Roux, Cheslin Kolbe (Frans Steyn 71), Lukhanyo Am, Damian De Allende, Makazole Mapimpi; Handre Pollard, Faf De Klerk (Herschel Jantjies 73), Tendai Mtawarira (Steven Kitschoff 54), Bongi Mbonambi (Malcolm Marx 37), Frans Malherbe (Vincent Koch 54), Eben Etzebeth (RG Snyman 62) 62), Lood De Jager (Franco Mostert 66), Siya Kolisi (captain) (Steven Kitschoff 11), Pieter-Steph Du Toit, Duane Vermeulen (Francois Louw 67).Try: Mapimpi 4, 70, De Klerk 66.

Tips On How To Find Reliable Ecommerce Counsel Services

first_img TAGSAttorneyBusinessLawyerLegalProfessional ServicesSmall Businesstips Previous articleFirst COVID-19 vaccines arrive in Florida as ‘buried’ coronavirus report questions state responseNext articleEfficient Ways to Improve Your Home Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By Allen BrownIf you’re a small business owner who is just getting started and is relatively new to everything, there are some legal issues that you need to be aware of. This is a complex process and something that has to be taken seriously if you want to be successful. Regardless of the nature of your future company, there will likely come a time when you will need to seek advice from a professional, in this case, a good and reliable lawyer to guide you through this procedure.Finding the right one isn’t always easy, and you will probably experience several bumps on that “road”. To help you avoid them, we are going to provide you with some amazing tips that will lead you to the best possible lawyer out there.Determine The Type Of Attorney You NeedMost business lawyers are supposed to know the details about the classic formation requirements. These things usually involve setting up a company, putting together business contracts, etc.That’s why figuring out why you need a lawyer in the first place is key. Whether it is because you want to learn more about tax law, or you need a long-term attorney for your firm, find the one that can connect you with the right professionals occasionally when you need their advice.It’s worth mentioning that all these steps and the necessary documents are customized to meet your demands and needs. Your future lawyer should be familiar with them because you do not want to mess anything up.Questions That Need To Be AskedBefore you make a final decision when it comes to this, it’s important to first conduct a couple of consultations. Online legal experts at usually advise their clients to ask potential solicitors several crucial questions. They involve:How many years have you been doing this?How frequently have you come across cases like mine?What type of work do you normally do?Does anyone else work with you, or are you the only lawyer in the company?How much does your fee cost?Will there be any additional fees?How long will this process take?What type of communication do you mostly use? Emails, text messages, or phone calls?What inspired you to become an attorney?Do you have any references from your previous clients?Google ResearchGoogle is a great place to start when you are entering unknown territory. This search engine can provide you with  most of the answers you need. If your budget is currently too tight, it would be recommendable to type “free of charge consultation” to see if there are any attorneys near you that offer this type of service.If you manage to locate a lawyer in your city, or at least somewhere nearby who is familiar with your subject and who is willing to help you without charging anything, that would be great! Local business communities are usually equipped with these kinds of attorneys. The FeeIf the initial consultation with an attorney went pretty well, then it’s time to determine the next step. In this case, it’s the fee. Remember that this is one of the key elements of your future collaboration. Some would say a ‘make it or break it’ moment. If you lay your cards on the table as soon as possible, you will be able to see whether this person is a good match. Depending on the needs of your corporation, you can normally choose between an hourly fee or a flat fee.In general, most advocates demand some money in advance. If he or she is too persistent and aggressive about it, you should maybe consider hiring somebody else. There are some attorneys who will provide you a little leeway to see if it’s a good fit before you’re required to pay any fees. Social NetworksMost people these days, including lawyers, have profiles on social media platforms. It’s often either LinkedIn or Facebook. These networks can help you reach them and connect with them and are generally a great way to learn more about their past works and experience.For starters, you can add them as friends, like their pages or posts, or simply start following them. Now, the point of this is not to expect free legal advice, but to get a glimpse of who they are. Taxes, leases, workers, and many other things are all an important part of every corporation. If you want to succeed, get as much information as possible. It’s not recommended to handle all of this on your own, hence, a great lawyer is something that needs to be considered. Since it’s not so easy to find the good one, take these tips into consideration before doing anything else. You have entered an incorrect email address!

In the fast growing Vietnamese economy, ways of living are changing and middle class people tend to prefer living in high rise building apartment rather than in the typical small urban alley, called “Hẻm”. Hẻm are now considered by many people as dirty, crowded and unsafe.
However, they are a vital component of Ho Chi Minh City street network and the social life of the city’s inhabitants.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiFar from any conceptual statement, this project proposes an alternative, showing potential rehabilitation of this urban fabric in need of revitalization.Save this picture!ModelSite Characteristics The house is built on an irregular shaped 4m wide and 8m deep plot in a typical small alley of Phu Nhan District, a heavily populated central district of Ho Chi Minh City. It was designed for a Family of 4 members, on 4 levels: Ground floor, mezzanine, 2 floors and roof terrace.
The project sticks to this irregular shape, except on the front where a balcony and a small courtyard create a “buffer space” between the public space and the house. The roof terrace, accessible, connects the house’s inhabitants with the city scape.
The site is surrounded by disparate constructions and the environment is visually chaotic.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSpace Optimization and Coziness With 32 m2 per floor, layout and interior design are the key factors to optimize each space in order to meet all the functions required and gives a sense of coziness despite promiscuity.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiNatural Lighting and Crossing ventilationThe house is widely open on the front elevation set back.

Why is he misusing the state’s resources?”Significantly, while issuing him the notice, the Supreme Court asked the Prime Minister Imran Khan to explain as to why he used a state property for a private function”Notice to be also issued to the Prime Minister, Mr Imran Khan, since the utilisation by him of a public building, that is, the Convention Centre Islamabad, was for a private function which apparently had no concern with ‘the exercise of powers and performance of functions’ of his office (in terms of Article 248 of the Constitution),” remarked the bench. (emphasis supplied)Matter before the CourtIn a civil matter, an application for adjournment was submitted by Mr. Mehmood A. Sheikh, AOR, on behalf of, ‘Mr. Ahmed Awais, ASC representing the petitioner stating that Mr. Ahmed Awais has been ‘elevated as Advocate General Punjab’, therefore, the petitioner may be granted time to engage another counsel.Therefore, in the interest of justice, the AOR and the petitioner were allowed to engage the services of another counsel within two weeksFurther, Syed Rifaqat Hussain Shah, the Additional Secretary, Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan, who was present in the Court stated that Mr. Ahmed Awais as AG should not involve himself in Bar politics and he is the ex officio Chairman of the Punjab Bar Council, which is the disciplinary body of lawyers.He also said that it was unfortunate that the AG continues to be actively involved in Bar politics and participated in a function held by a particular segment of the legal community to canvass support for their candidate in the upcoming elections of the Association.He also submitted before the Court that he was in the forefront of the function held at the Convention Centre, Islamabad, which was broadcast on all television channels where he can be seen sitting with the Prime Minister of Pakistan.Importantly, he remarked,”Prime Minister of Pakistan is the Prime Minister of each and every citizen and cannot align himself with a particular group and all the more so in a function which is held in a public venue and paid for by the taxpayers”.Court’s ObservationsThe Court was of the view that the concerns expressed by Syed Rifaqat Hussain Shah involved serious issues, including the maintenance of the integrity of public offices and Fundamental Rights, including Articles 18, 25, 26 and the prescribed oath of office of the Prime Minister.Since the matter appeared to the Court to be of ‘public importance with reference to the enforcement of any of the Fundamental Rights’ in terms of Article 184(3) of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (‘the Constitution’) the Supreme Court accordingly took notice of the matter.The Court issued notice to the Prime Minister, Mr. Imran Khan and to the learned Attorney-General for Pakistan.Further, the Court directed that the law officers and all concerned should come prepared to dilate on whether a public building and the public offices of the Prime Minister and the Advocate General Punjab can be used for personal and or the political purposes of the political party to which they belong.The authority which operates the Convention Centre, Islamabad was also asked to submit its report about the following:(1) Who sought permission for the use of the Convention Centre in respect of the said function?(2) Who granted permission for the use of the Convention Centre?(3) Whether a bill was raised and payment made, and if so, by whom, for the use of the Convention Centre?(4) The answers to the aforesaid be submitted with supporting documents.Notice was sent to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (‘PEMRA’) to submit the following:(1) A copy of the complete recording of the said function held in the Convention Centre.(2) A transcript of the above.(3) The television channels which had broadcast the said function live, which had broadcast it later and how many times.Notices have also been forwarded to the Pakistan Bar Council, the Supreme Court Bar Association and the Punjab Bar Council to assist in the matter as it also appears to involve the integrity of Bar elections and of the office of the AG/Chairman, Punjab Bar CouncilClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Fourth of July

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article Fourth of July Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Published 11:00 pm Monday, July 4, 2011 Email the author By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen “Several thousand, give or take a few,” is the way China Grove resident and parade “committee” member Jimmy Messick said. “It’s a big crowd – about usual.”But there is nothing “usual” about the China Grove Parade.“Just decorate a ride or grab one” and parade along to the end of town. Then say, “thank you” for an ice-cold rasher of watermelon and stay around as long as you will to enjoy the fellowship of friends and neighbors. Where else is there a parade like that?“That’s what this parade is all about,” said Diane LaFountaine, a parade organizer. “It’s all about people. It’s all about community.” Sponsored Content Latest Stories By The Penny Hoarder Sheila Deverage laughing said the China Grove Parade is “Troy’s vacation.” However, that would be to limit the scope of the celebration. People come from all across Pike County and far beyond.Linda Thrash of Brundidge said the China Grove Parade is “just typical Southern fun.” “We’ve been coming for years and always look forward to it,” she said. “We’ve never been disappointed.”Norma Turner from the Tennille community was viewing the parade for the first time.“We usually stay around the house on the Fourth being lazy,” she said. “But we’d heard a lot about the parade and wanted to come see what it was all about. It’s a great way to celebrate and it was well worth getting out of the house.”Ella Grace Dicks covers her ears as motorcycles make their way by during the annual Fourth of July Parade in the China Grove community in Pike County, Ala., Monday, July 4, 2011. (Messenger Staff Photo/Thomas Graning)Mary Elizabeth Wilson had driven from “the other side of Montgomery” to come to the parade. “We really didn’t know where China Grove was and, boy, were we surprised when we got here,” she said. “It’s amazing that this many people could find this place. But, now that we know where it is and how much fun this parade is – well, not just the parade. The atmosphere. It’s like stepping back in time to a place you’d like to be. A great day to be an American.”People cut watermelon to eat after the annual Fourth of July Parade in the China Grove community in Pike County, Ala., Monday, July 4, 2011. (Messenger Staff Photo/Thomas Graning)Scott Flowers of Troy found a spot across from the old M.L. Grant store to watch the parade. And for good reason.“That old store belonged to my uncle M.L. Grant – Martin Luther Grant,” Flowers said. “When I was a boy, our mama would ‘farm’ us out in the summer and we’d spend a lot of time out here, walking barefoot everywhere we went.“We’d go down to the pond fishing, shoot rifles and we had chocolate pudding every day. It was a great way to spend the summer.”Flowers said he learned to drive on the lonely country road that was the busy parade route for the 12th Annual China Grove Parade.He shook his head in disbelief that there might be no 13th annual parade.“China Grove comes alive again on the Fourth of July,” Flowers said. “Why, half of Pike County is here. Not to have this parade? I hope that’s a false rumor. Too many people would be disappointed for that to be true.“This is the closest thing to a slice of Americana that there is. It’s down to earth, salt of the earth people coming together to celebrate America.

Cattlemen honor kitchen ‘boss’ Johnson

first_img Next UpThere are a lot of James Johnson in this world but there’s only one James O. Johnson and he’s a rare and special kind of man, said Ed Whatley, Pike County Cattlemen’s Association executive director.“Johnson subscribes to the theory that it’s better to give than to receive,” Whatley said. “And, he’s always available to give a helping hand and no one knows that better than the Pike County Cattlemen.“James O. is, of course, the originator of our cooking group that’s been around for about 40 years. Before we had the Cattlemen’s building, James O. would grill steaks and hamburgers for the Cattlemen and Cattlemen and all different groups. We’ve been in the Cattlemen’s building for about 20 years now, and he’s been in charge of all the cooking and grilling and the concession stand. Print Article Christmas came early for James O. Johnson this year.And, it came in an unexpected but greatly appreciated way.The Pike County Cattlemen honored Johnson by naming the kitchen at Cattleman Park the “James O.

NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, highlighted in “Hidden Figures,” dies at 101

first_imgNASA(NEW YORK) — NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who helped pave the way for the first American astronaut to successfully orbit the Earth, died Monday morning at the age of 101, according to NASA. The pivotal roles of Johnson and other African American women at NASA were highlighted in the 2016 film Hidden Figures. Johnson was played by Taraji P. Henson.“Johnson helped our nation enlarge the frontiers of space even as she made huge strides that also opened doors for women and people of color,” NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement. “Her dedication and skill as a mathematician helped put humans on the moon and before that made it possible for our astronauts to take the first steps in space that we now follow on a journey to Mars.”Johnson was hired by NASA in 1953 and calculated the trajectory for Alan Shepard, the first American in space, before electronic computers were used.When John Glenn was preparing for his mission on which he’d become the first American to orbit the Earth, he requested that Johnson personally recheck the calculations made by the new electronic computers. According to Johnson, Glenn said, “If she says they’re good, then I’m ready to go.”President Barack Obama presented Johnson with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015.“In her 33 years at NASA,” Obama said at the time, Johnson “broke the barriers of race and gender, showing generations of young people that everyone can excel in math and science and reach for the stars.” Bridenstine said in his statement, “We will never forget her courage and leadership and the milestones we could not have reached without her.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Linking saturation, stability and sustainability in food webs with observed equilibrium structure

first_imgStability of a dynamic equilibrium in a predator-prey system depends both on the type of functional response and on the point of equilibrium on the response curve. Saturation effects from Holling type II responses are known to destabilise prey populations, while a type III (sigmoid) response curve has been shown to provide stability at lower levels of saturation. These effects have also been shown in multi-trophic model systems. However, stability analyses of observed equilibria in real complex ecosystems have as yet not assumed non-linear functional responses. Here, we evaluate the implications of saturation in observed balanced material-flow structures, for system stability and sustainability. We first make the effects of the non-linear functional responses on the interaction strengths in a food web transparent by expressing the elements of Jacobian ‘community’ matrices for type II and III systems as simple functions of their linear (type I) counterparts. We then determine the stability of the systems and distinguish two critical saturation levels: (1) a level where the system is just as stable as a type I system and (2) a level above which the system cannot be stable unless it is subsidised, separating a stable materially sustainable regime from an unsustainable one. We explain the stabilising and destabilising effects in terms of the feedbacks in the systems. The results shed light on the robustness of observed patterns of interaction strengths in complex food webs and suggest the implausibility of saturation playing a significant role in the equilibrium dynamics of sustainable ecosystems.last_img read more
