Queen’s rugby bloodbath

first_imgThree rugby players from Queen’s College have been injured following a violent rugby match against Magdalen this week, with one player having to have metal plates set in his jaw.Jonty Strachan, has had to have metal plates set into his jaw, Tom Nash has broken his leg while another player, James Thompson has broken his nose.Queen’s lost the match 6 – 3 and JCR president Strachan puts this down to the “series of unfortunate events” debilitating the three players.He described the game as “very close” with “just bad luck” playing a big role in this “very bloody match” which perhaps they could have “easily won” were it not for the injuries.He added that despite what may be assumed there was “not a physical mismatch” and Magdalen were not being excessively aggressive.Strachan has had to take time off from all duties to recover at home after having already spent a few nights at the John Radcliffe Hospital.The injury itself came as he attempted a tackle, his jaw colliding with the opponent’s knee. James Thompson described the surgery on his team-mate as “serious”.Doctors used plates to repair Strachan’s jaw which had split down the front and had to wire his cheeks; he also lost a few teeth.Thompson also describes the match as “close-scoring” despite being a “bit bloody” and puts the loss down to a lack of shape and structure after Strachan’s hospitalisation.He himself is unsure what caused his broken nose, which came two minutes before Strachan’s “more serious” accident.The catalogue of injuries grew with Tom Nash. His injury came as a player fell on him, yet it was only after being sent off half an hour later did he realise his leg was broken. He is now on crutches.The Queen’s captain called the match “tight” and “well contested” despite what may appear to be a bloodbath.Moreover, he described the “good sportsmanship” of the players in a game that was “great to watch” and enjoyable to play in.He did, however, express the opinion that the professional referee “wasn’t very good” and, although Magdalen would probably disagree, he felt that he “changed his mind quite a lot”.last_img read more

Robby Krieger Brings Spirit of the Doors to O.C. Music Pier

first_imgTickets are still available for the Robby Krieger show Monday on the Ocean City Music Pier. Photo credit: Joe AnconaWhen your singer has a personality as big as Jim Morrison’s was, it’s easy to be overlooked in a band as “just the guitar player.”But, Robby Krieger was much more than just the guitar player in the Doors.Krieger, now 69, wrote or co-wrote many of the Doors’ hits, including “Light My Fire,” “Love Me Two Times,” “Touch Me” and “Love Her Madly.”And his guitar playing — influenced by flamenco, folk, blues and jazz — gave the Doors a distinctive sound that helped the group stand out among all the great rock bands in the 1960s.The Doors ended when Jim Morrison died in 1971 of a drug overdose at age 27. Keyboardist Ray Manzarek died of cancer in 2013, leaving Krieger and drummer John Densmore as the only original surviving members. But, the group’s music lives on, and Krieger has never stopped playing the band’s songs.And on Monday, June 29 at the Ocean City Music Pier, Krieger and his band — with Krieger’s son, Waylon, on lead vocals — will take a drive through the band’s entire catalog, playing many of the Doors’ hits and possibly some deep cuts.At a show Friday, June 26 in Bethlehem, Pa., Krieger and his band played for nearly two hours, not only performing hits such as “Break on Through (To the Other Side),” but also touching on lesser-known songs in the Doors’ catalog, such as “The Changeling” and “Maggie M’Gill,” according to a review in the Allentown Morning Call.Tickets are still available for Krieger’s 7:30 p.m. show at the Ocean City Music Pier are $38 plus applicable fees, and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com, or at the Music Pier Box Office, 825 Boardwalk.last_img read more

Union calls for maximum temperature in bakeries

first_imgBakeries are under pressure to do more to reduce workplace temperatures after the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) launched a campaign to get a maximum working temperature enshrined in UK legislation.As part of the Cool It! campaign, which is also supported by the TUC, the BFAWU has put forward an Early Day Motion (EDM), sponsored by Labour MP John McDonnell, calling for clear legislation on the issue, with the introduction of a maximum working temperature of around 30C and 27C for those doing strenuous work. As British Baker went to press, 32 MPs were supporting the EDM.According to the BFAWU, current guidelines on workplace temperatures are unclear, with employers taking an ad hoc approach to the issue. National president Ian Hodson told British Baker that some of his members had been forced to work in temperatures as high as 45C, with temperatures of between 36-38C commonplace.”This is an issue for bakeries of all sizes right up to the big plant bakers,” he said. “While modern bakeries have technology, such as air conditioning, to regulate temperatures, in long-standing workplaces, there has not been enough investment.”Gordon Polson, director of the Federation of Bakers (FoB), which represents plant bakers, said his members had updated their factories “wherever possible”. “Health and safety assess-ments are taking place all the time in bakeries. These are risk-based assessments and if there is a problem which is certainly not all the time, as it’s more of a hot weather issue then there are measures that can be taken, such as different types of clothes and different break patterns.”He said the FoB did not back calls for a maximum working temperature. “The view has been taken that there is sufficient health and safety in place. We don’t think it’s necessary.”Bakers looking to get involved in the campaign should email: [email protected]last_img read more

Bruce Springsteen Makes Rare Hometown Appearance At Asbury Lanes Grand Re-Opening [Full Video]

first_imgOn Monday night, storied Jersey Shore bowling alley/concert venue Asbury Lanes celebrated their grand re-opening with a star-studded blowout featuring Portugal. The Man, Danny Clinch‘s Tangiers Blues Band, and a rare appearance by local hero Bruce Springsteen in his adopted hometown.Springsteen, a native of the Jersey Shore, got his start playing in clubs in the area and has always maintained a musical connection to his New Jersey roots, from his 1973 debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., through today, with his frequent onstage praise of “the great state of New Jersey.”Springsteen is in the midst of his extended Broadway residency at the Walter Kerr Theater but, as Rolling Stone notes, joined the opening night festivities as a billed “special guest” after the venue pledged a $125,000 donation to the Boys and Girls Club in his name. While many assumed the Boss’ big appearance with Clinch and company would close the performance, the Tangiers Blues Band took the stage first, building anticipation with blues-style covers of Talking Heads‘ “Life During Wartime” and Beastie Boys‘ “You Gotta Fight For Your Right (to Party!)”, followed by a situationally appropriate rendition of Velvet Underground‘s “Waiting For The Man”. As previously reported, Asbury Lanes initially operated as a regular bowling alley in the 1960’s before transitioning into a 350-capacity alternative music venue in the early 2000s. After closing in October of 2015 due to structural and mechanical issues, Asbury Lanes finally got the makeover it needed, complete with a new platform system that allows them to cover the lanes during big shows and increase venue capacity to more than 700. The renovated venue also includes a custom sound system and lighting from Nashville’s Cour Design. To fill the stage, the venue has entered into a promoting partnership with Bowery Presents, the NYC-based company that books Terminal 5, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Steel and more. However, according to David Bowd of Salt Hotels, the company that operates the “new” Asbury Lanes, they hope to retain “the same anything-goes local hangout it always was and reborn as a state-of-the-art music venue.”“Everyone has an Asbury Lanes story,” explains Bowd in a press statement posted in the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. “Emotions ran higher with this project than with anything we’ve undertaken. What mattered to them matter to us: keeping the soul of this incredible venue while making changes necessary to guarantee its figure.”For more information, or to check out the list of upcoming shows at the newly re-opened Asbury Lanes head to the venue’s website.[H/T Rolling Stone] The band then welcomed Springsteen to the stage for a run of blues classics including Huey “Piano” Smith‘s “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu” and Muddy Waters‘ “I Just Want to Make Love to You”. An extended reading of Don Raye‘s “Down the Road a Piece” followed, and saw the Boss give audible directions to the band as he continued to push them deeper into the blues jam. Finally, the band delivered a celebratory “Twist and Shout” to cap their performance, before ceding the stage to Portugal. The Man, who took on the unusual task of following Bruce Springsteen.You can watch a full crowd-shot video of Bruce’s 30-minute sit-in with the Tangiers Blues Band at the grand re-opening of Asbury Lanes below:Tangiers Blues Band w/ Bruce Springsteen – Asbury Lanes – 6/18/18last_img read more

NCUA approves NAFCU-backed exam appeals changes, proposes improvements to stress testing

first_img continue reading » The NCUA Board approved two NAFCU-supported proposals related to exam appeals, which the agency says will increase transparency and due process, yesterday during its open meeting. NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger thanked the board for listening to credit unions’ concerns and making appropriate appeals process changes.“NAFCU and our member credit unions appreciate the NCUA Board’s commitment to easing regulatory burden,” Berger said. “These changes to the exam appeals process will simplify and improve the process for credit unions. We will continue our efforts to improve the regulatory environment to help ensure credit unions are able to grow and thrive.”One of the approved rules standardizes the appeals process for regulations that currently have their own review and appeals procedures. The other expands the number of supervisory determinations appealable to the agency’s Supervisory Review Committee and provides credit unions the opportunity for additional review by the director of the Office of Examination and Insurance. 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Turkey at second peak of coronavirus outbreak, health minister says

first_imgDoctors and medical groups have said some hospitals were at capacity. At the weekend, the mayors of Istanbul and Ankara accused the government of playing down the scale of the pandemic, citing local information.The Turkish Medics Association said last month that based on antibody tests, there are likely some 10 times more active coronavirus patients than suggested by the official tally.Koca stood by the accuracy of official tallies and urged people to be more cautious. Turkey is experiencing the second peak of its novel coronavirus outbreak, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Wednesday, while the government announced new restrictions on weddings and other social gatherings as daily cases and deaths rise rapidly.Fatalities have jumped to their highest since mid-May, when lockdowns were in place, and new cases have risen to mid-June levels, at almost 1,600. Turkey mostly reopened the economy and lifted weekend and age-specific lockdowns in early June.The number of new cases rose by 1,596 to 273,301 in the last 24 hours, according to Health Ministry data, while the death toll from the virus rose by 45 to 6,462 on Wednesday. Koca told a press conference after meeting his coronavirus science team that the capital Ankara had seen the most rapid rise in cases lately, producing double the numbers of Istanbul, previously the outbreak’s epicenter in Turkey.”We are going through the second peak of the first wave of coronavirus. The carelessness at weddings and religious holidays has bought us to this point,” Koca said, but added lockdowns to curb the outbreak were not on the government’s agenda for now.Following Koca’s remarks, the government announced new restrictions on weddings, limiting their duration to an hour, banning all food and drinks. It also banned the attendance of senior citizens and children to such gatherings.”The virus is spreading to more people each day. Our test numbers are rising every day, our new patient numbers are not falling,” Koca said, adding 29,865 health workers were infected, with 52 deaths.center_img Topics :last_img read more
