first_imgTuesday May 26, 2020 Archive footage shows the moment Siya Kolisi absolutely wrecked his future Springbok flyhalf Supersport have released footage of Springbok captain Siya Kolisi showing some hugely impressive footwork to score for the Stormers against the Lions in Super Rugby a few years back.ADVERTISEMENTKolisi, who famously lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy with the Springboks in Japan last year, made his name in an exciting Stormers team that at one point included the likes of superstar Cheslin Kolbe.As can be seen in this newly released clip from a Super Rugby match in Johannesburg, Kolbe played a part in the well-worked try, after Kobus van Wyk took a quick lineout around the halfway line.WATCH: Former Bok coach shows Kolisi won psychological battle before a ball was even kickedWith the Lions up quickly to defend, including another World Cup winner in Franco Mostert, Kolbe couldn’t work his magic but after a quick cleanout by the Stormers, including Kolisi playing his part, the attack was sparked again.This time it was Nizaam Carr, who was able to beat the pillar then offload beautifully to Juan de Jongh, who found Nic Groom. He then released Kolisi, and with just number ten Elton Jantjies to beat, the flanker worked his magic, turning Jantjies’ feet to jelly.“He’s got dancing feet, the big man,” said commentator Bob Skinstad, who himself knew a thing or two about beating a defender one on one.

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Chairman Conaway Vows to Defend Successful Crop Insurance System SHARE SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 5, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News Chairman Conaway Vows to Defend Successful Crop Insurance System The House Agriculture Committee is diligently working on a new Farm Bill, which Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX) hopes will receive a vote in the House of Representatives before the end of March. Conaway, who addressed the crop insurance industry’s annual convention today, said that would leave plenty of time to work out differences with the Senate version of the bill and ensure new legislation is finalized before the Farm Bill expires at the end of September. “We will have difficult decisions to make,” he said, noting that there is “no reason to put it off just because [the debate] will be hard.”Conaway said the bill leaving his committee will include a strong crop insurance component, and he will work to fight off attempts to weaken crop insurance. “Our mantra is ‘don’t screw up crop insurance,’” he explained.Conaway’s support was music to the ears of crop insurers, who believe their track record under the current Farm Bill is noteworthy.  Tom Zacharias, president of National Crop Insurance Services, outlined these successes during his opening remarks at the meeting. “Farmers have spent nearly $15 billion in premiums since 2014,” Zacharias said.  “They’ve also shouldered more than $30 billion in deductibles.”Because farmers help pay into the system, taxpayers aren’t left footing the whole bill after a disaster strikes.  That helps explain why crop insurance costs are below budget. Congressional Budget Office projections for crop insurance are down nearly $10 billion since the 2014 Farm Bill was enacted. Zacharias said the industry has also invested heavily in improving efficiency and stamping out waste under the current Farm Bill.Source: National Crop Insurance Services Press Release Previous articleFarmers National Company Reports Increase in Land Listings, PriceNext articleIndiana Agriculture Nutrient Alliance Hires Executive Director Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

first_imgdkfielding/iStock(WASHINGTON) — Members of the Crow Tribe hunt elk to feed their families.The state of Wyoming says they can’t kill the animals on federal forest land without a permit.The Supreme Court will now decide whether an 1868 treaty protects the Native Americans’ right to hunt.During a 2014 hunting expedition, Clayvin Herrera and three other tribal members pursued a small herd of elk as it moved from the Crow Reservation in Montana to the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming. There the hunting party “shot, quartered and packed” three elk, and carried the meat back to the reservation, dividing it among their families, according to court documents.Wyoming game officials later tracked down Herrera and charged him with hunting off season and without a license. A state court convicted Herrera, and he was ordered to pay an $8,000 fine and give up hunting privileges for three years.Herrera said the Second Treaty of Fort Laramie from 1868 — between the United States and Crow Tribe, before Wyoming became a state — expressly allows tribal members to legally hunt in unpopulated federal forest lands at any time.The treaty, which established the tribe’s present-day reservation, states that members “shall have the right to hunt on the unoccupied lands of the U.S. so long as game may be found thereon, and as long as peace subsists among the whites and Indians on the borders of the hunting districts.”Wyoming contends that the treaty only meant to afford “temporary” rights to hunt off the reservation and that when the state was created in 1890 those rights were terminated. The state also argues that President Grover Cleveland’s designation of the land as a national forest in 1897 effectively rendered it “occupied.”Moreover, the state is arguing that federal courts have already resolved the issue: Twenty-five years ago, in a similar case involving the Crow Tribe, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals concluded, “The Tribe and its members are subject to the game laws of Wyoming.”Herrera disagrees, saying a subsequent Supreme Court decision in 1999 overruled the notion that statehood implicitly terminated existing U.S. government agreements with Native Americans.“Neither the 1868 treaty nor any act of Congress contains any suggestion that Wyoming’s admission to the Union would abrogate the hunting right, and the mere creation of the Bighorn National Forest did not render that land ‘occupied’ so as to abrogate the hunting right,” Herrera’s attorneys argue in a brief to the high court.Herrera, a single father of three, insists hunting rights are deeply personal. Facing tough financial times in 2014, he says he went out to shoot an elk to “live off” the meat during the winter, according to court documents.“Affirmance not only would strip a sovereign Indian tribe of a longstanding, treaty-guaranteed right of enormous practical and spiritual significance,” Herrera’s legal team writes in its brief to the high court, “it would threaten the rights of numerous other Indian tribes that long ago reserved similar off-reservations protections in their own treaties with the U.S.”The Trump administration has taken Herrera’s side, writing in a brief to the court that, in its view, neither Wyoming statehood nor creation of the national forest terminated the Crow Tribe’s hunting rights under the treaty.

first_imgWPVI-TV(PIKE CREEK, Del.) — A Delaware school district has removed a driver from work after a 5-year-old boy was left on a school bus for seven hours Wednesday.The boy was put on the bus in the morning, according to his mother, but he apparently fell asleep and never got off when it arrived at Linden Hill Elementary School in Pike Creek, 15 miles west of Wilmington.“I didn’t really know what was going on, because I know I dropped my baby off at the bus stop and he was in the bus,” mother Ivana Dennis told ABC’s Philadelphia station WPVI-TV.Security footage from the bus depot shows that 5-year-old Ibn Polk was not discovered until the bus driver returned to the lot in the afternoon, WPVI said.The bus was equipped with a child detector to prevent a student from being left behind, but it was not working, according to the Red Clay School District.Security footage also shows that students on the bus tried to point out the sleeping child as they were disembarking Wednesday morning.“The bus driver got out and I was crying for a bit and then I stopped crying,” Polk told WPVI. “I was scared.”Polk’s parents were also not notified of their child’s absence from classes.“We recognize that procedures in place were not followed and this was a breakdown, a failure,” said Pati Nash, public information officer for the Red Clay School District.The driver, who is employed by Sutton Bus Company, will not be allowed to drive for the district anymore, WPVI reported.Luckily for Polk, the temperatures on Wednesday were higher than average. The high temperature in Wilmington was 51 degrees, about 10 degrees above average and almost 40 degrees higher than on Monday. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgOxford is the biggest bicycle theft hot spot in Britain, a survey has revealed.Out of the 30 UK university towns and cities evaluated by a Hiplok survey, Oxford ranked highest in bike related crimes.In the year to May 2017, 932 incidents of bicycle theft were reported to police in the Oxford city area. The second highest location for bike theft, Cambridge, saw nearly 700 bike-related crime reports over the same period.In 2016, 17% of working residents in the city cycled to work regularly. According to national cycle database Bike Register, over 4000 bike thefts were reported in the city last year. Belinda Hopkins, Crime Prevention and Reduction Advisor at Oxford’s Security Services, said that in the last five years, bike crime has risen significantly.Hopkins commented: “We have installed surveillance cameras in all the top hotspots for bike theft, and have about twelve security officers a day patrolling these areas. Several thieves have been caught so far, but I don’t know what the police are going to do about it at this point.“The majority of these incidents would be preventable, if people knew how to properly lock their bike. That means having a metal D-lock and locking the back wheel and frame to the pole.”Earlier this year, an Oxford resident was caught with a stash of a 164 stolen bicycles in his backyard.New College student Michael Rope told Cherwell: “A while back I left my bike locked up outside Tesco on Magdalen Street. I was only in there for ten minutes, but came out and saw someone hacking at my lock – I couldn’t get there quickly enough.”As an additional safety precaution, Security Services have teamed up with Bike Register, where students can register their vehicles and change their status from “sold” to “stolen” accordingly. This method involved fitting QR coded stickers to the registered bicycle, so that it can always be tracked.last_img read more

first_imgThe String Cheese Incident recently shared news of their “Sound Lab,” a creative workspace for the band to create and release new music on their own schedule. When we spoke to Michael Kang about the lab, he mentioned that it was not only SCI who would be using the space. Now we have our first taste of non-SCI music from the “Sound Lab,” in the form of a new song from the Kyle Hollingsworth Band.Released today, Hollingsworth’s “Tumbling” has a great summery feel to it. Hollingsworth talks about the song’s inspiration, saying: “Tumbling” started out as a groove that was in need of becoming a song. It was one of those feels that I had done in the past, but with a more indie vibe to it. Lyrically it speaks of my first love and first loss all around a trip to the see The Grateful Dead in Pittsburgh. Sometimes I struggle to form a cohesive theme and groove, but this came together fairly easily and quickly. I like where this ended up, I hope you enjoy!”The String Cheese Incident Jams Hard, Welcomes Tony Furtado In Atlanta [Full Audio]Listen to “Tumbling” below:last_img read more

first_imgby Anne Galloway vtdigger.org March 29, 2011 Darcie Johnston, a political campaign consultant for GOP candidates, is galvanizing support ‘ and money ‘ for a campaign to kill the universal health care bill that just passed in the House. Johnston started her organization Vermonters for Health Care Freedom, a ‘free’ market group that opposes a ‘single-payer’ style medical coverage system for the state, just a few weeks ago as a Facebook campaign.Her mini movement has ‘ thanks to money from an unnamed source ‘ migrated from the somewhat limited realm of social networking sites to a website and a burgeoning list of 200 donors, ‘friends’ and supporters. Johnston, who is the volunteer prime mover of a faction of disaffected conservatives, rallied the anti-single payer flag and got dozens of opponents of H.202, the universal health care bill, to come to the Statehouse last weekend to decry the evils of government-controlled payment systems for medical care.Johnston has formed a 501(c)(4) to collect anonymous donations for the cause, and just today launched a website featuring a V-shaped, ultra-patriotic logo wrapped in the American flag and crowned with three gold stars.DOYLE POLL SHOWS SUPPORT FOR VERMONT YANKEESen. Bill Doyle, R-Washington, a political science professor at Johnson State College, has released the results of his annual town meeting survey. Though the survey is unscientific, it’s considered to be a indicator of public opinion. This year about 15,000 Vermonters filled out the survey, representing 142 cities and towns. Doyle says it’s one of the biggest responses in the 42 years he’s conducted the survey.Forty-five percent of respondents supported renewing Entergy Corp.’s license to operate Vermont Yankee, while 41 percent said no and 14 percent were unsure.Doyle also asked Vermonters whether ‘physician-assisted suicide’ should be legalized. Fifty percent of those polled said yes; 37 percent said no; and 13 percent weren’t sure.Here is a rundown on some of the ‘yes votes.’Tougher DUI law 75 percentExpand bottle deposit 79 percentPay more for locally grown foods 63 percentRequire use of motorcycle helmets 90 percentGOLD PLATE DINNER FOR DEMSIt’s never too early to start raising money for the next campaign cycle, which is now 13 months away. Gov. Peter Shumlin began tapping donors just eight weeks into his first term as governor. The Democratic House Campaign isn’t far behind. On April 7, Democratic Party devotees will have an opportunity to break bread with House Speaker Shap Smith and three other members of his leadership team at the Chef’s Table in Montpelier for $500 a plate. Want cocktails with that? Donate $1,000 to the party and you can sip away at martinis, too.NRA TARGETS ‘RIGHT’ ANSWERLast weekend the National Rifle Association called my husband (they wouldn’t speak to me) as part of a telephone survey and wanted to know if he was concerned about the bureaucrats taking away his right to bear arms. The caller then played a recorded message from the CEO, Wayne LaPierre. The message? A secret U.S. Senate subcommittee is looking to hit the delete button on the right to bear arms. And they asked what my husband (who happened to purchase a hunting rifle for our son a few years ago) would do about it. My husband wasn’t aware that secret Senate subcommittees could change the Constitution without state ratification.When he replied that he was a proponent of gun control, the caller, a self-professed NRA member, said ‘Oh. That’s alright then. Good-bye.’ Survey completed.It wasn’t clear why the NRA would make such a concerted effort to reach out to Vermonters. Maybe it’s because as Kate Robinson reported earlier this month, Vermont has among the most liberal ‘carry’ gun laws in the nation for the carrying of concealed or visible weapons’in a car or on your person’without a permit. ‘There are no gun licensing or registration requirements, no waiting period to buy a gun, no requirement for firearms safety training before you can buy a gun, private sales do not require records and there are no state laws limiting who can buy a gun,’ Robinson wrote.The bill the NRA was worried about, H.83, which proposed stiffening penalties for gun owners whose guns have been used in teenage suicides, has gone nowhere this year.H. 244, however, a bill allowing Vermont law enforcement officials to use gun silencers was introduced in February.THE GRASS ISN’T GREENER IN VERMONTJohn Gregg reports this week in the Valley News that population growth in towns along the Connecticut River is decidedly lopsided. More people are moving to sort of tax-free New Hampshire (the Granite state does charge a 5 percent tax on unearned income) than the Green Mountain State.
