South African World Cup kit launched

first_imgChris Stephenson, Canterbury CEO, commented: “The new kit is our most sophisticated to date and as always, we have relished the challenge to release a tougher yet lighter jersey that will be showcased at this year’s Rugby World Cup. We are proud to be associated with South Africa throughout the Rugby World Cup and it is our privilege to support them in the best way we can, with what we believe is the best jersey a player can wear. We look forward to seeing them in action in New Zealand later this year.” Jean De Villiers, John Smit and Victor Matfield model the new kitCanterbury and the South African Rugby Union have launched their revolutionary new jersey that will be worn by Peter De Villiers’ men at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand later this year.The shirt, which incorporates gold detailing and iconic victory dates on the right arm, features the new Loop 21 collar design and latest fabric technology, providing South Africa with the best possible on-field support and making it the strongest jersey that Canterbury have ever produced. As reigning World Champions, we believe that the Springboks are equipped with the latest technological advancements to support their quest to retain glory.Throughout months of research and development, the Loop 21 neckline was tested to destruction by Progressive Sports Technologies (one of the leading Sports Technology institutes based at Loughborough University) to ensure maximum strength and durability. Advancements in temex and the use of LYCRA® SPORT fabric provide improved sweat evaporation, enhanced freedom of movement and superior shape retention. The construction of the jersey and fabric positioning improve player’s ability to evade tackles and provide position support to enhance movement. Jurie Roux, CEO of SARU, said: “The Springboks were extensively involved in the design of the jersey and in its testing and assessment of its epical features and they were more than happy with the outcome. A rugby jersey is one of the key tools of a player’s trade and having one that works to give them that fractional advantage on the field is another way of maximising their ability to perform.”Fans have their opportunity to purchase the RWC 2011 Jersey from www.canterbury.com as well as selected retailers from today onwards. This also includes the new national jersey featuring the new Springboks sponsor, ABSA.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

GMO Labeling Debate Continues as Industry Groups Hold Tight on their…

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 15, 2016 GMO Labeling Debate Continues as Industry Groups Hold Tight on their Positions The U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee continues to negotiate a legislative deal on GMO labeling before the Vermont law goes into effect next month. Committee Chairman Pat Roberts says negotiations are ongoing this week with the committee’s ranking member Debbie Stabenow. However, as the negotiations continue, two sets of groups remain dug in on each side of on-package language versus QR codes. The Coalition for Safe Affordable Food initially supported only voluntary labeling, but is now open to a legislative deal that would make GMO disclosure mandatory if other disclosure methods, like QR codes, 1-800 numbers, and websites, could be used.The Center for Food Safety, the Organic Consumers Association, Food Democracy Now, and other advocacy groups are standing firm for on-package language, as will be required in Vermont.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News GMO Labeling Debate Continues as Industry Groups Hold Tight on their Positions Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleStay on WOTUS Likely Holds into 2017Next articleFSA Says Operating Loan Program Funding to Run Dry Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Drug mule in fear of violent Lithuanian gang

first_imgAdvertisement By Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A DRUG courier used by a Lithuanian criminal gang was in fear of life if he didn’t transport heroin to Limerick.Mindaugas Palizija (21) of Nottingham Street, Dublin was arrested when he stepped of a bus from Dublin with €3,540 worth of heroin in his pocket ready for sale on March 5 last.Having been remanded in custody since his arrest, he pleaded guilty to possession of drugs for sale or supply.Limerick Circuit Court heard that he was to meet another Lithuanian man at Colbert Station but gardaí had him under surveillance.Prosecuting counsel John O’Sullivan said that Palizija was found with 114 clear plastic bags of heroin in his jacket.He told Gardaí that he had been ordered to travel from Dublin to Limerick with the drugs.Defence counsel Cian Kelly said his client fell in with the gang who were the only group that “provided hospitality” to him in Ireland. He was ordered to deal drugs to work off his own debt with the gang.Palizija was one of a number of vulnerable young men from Lithuania who had come to the attention of gardai investigating the sale and supply of drugs in Limerick. Garda said that he was a drug user and was recruited to come to Ireland.From autumn of last year, Gardaí were aware that various Lithuanians who had been in the country only a short time were found in possession of heroin. Interpol confirmed that the accused had no previous convictions either in Ireland or Lithuania.“Palizija was under extreme duress in that there was a threat over his life from people who had the power, the intention, the capability and the form to carry it out”.“He was left with little alternative because his life was in danger,” Mr Kelly added.“This is a notorious and violent drug gang using vulnerable young men to further their vile aims and their profiteering. This man was a pawn in that system. All he wanted to do was return home to his family and further his studies Judge Moran heard”.Accepting the guilty plea, Judge Carroll Moran imposed a three year prison sentence, backdated to March 5.

As tenant fees ban goes live in full today, agents warned over advance fees

first_imgARLA Property has today reminded letting agents across England that the full tenant fees ban came into force this morning and now covers all kinds of tenancies.Now, the Tenant Fees Act applies not only to most kinds of new and renewed tenancies but also existing ones, regardless of when they started.“I think some agents will need a nudge to remind them that, in particular, they must examine their records to ensure they have not charged any advance check-out fees or any other advance fees in the past however long ago the money was taken,” says ARLA Chief Executive David Cox.“Agents have to remember that any fees taken in advance previously – and entirely lawfully at the time – have now become prohibited payments this morning, and have to be returned.”Cox reminds agents that although advance fees must be returned, rental deposits of more than five weeks’ rent can be kept until the end of the tenancy, even if an AST becomes a statutory periodic or a contractual periodic tenancy.“That, for the purposes of the tenant fees ban, is a continuation of an existing tenancy,” say Cox (left).He says ARLA has been asking landlords and letting agents to consider transferring tenants with ASTs to these two types of periodic tenancy if they have tenants with pets who have paid a larger deposit because they have a cat or dog.“If they subsequently start these tenants on a new AST or renew an existing one, the deposit will be restricted to five weeks’ rent and anything more than that returned to the tenant,” says Cox.Steve Harriott, Chief Executive of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS), says: “Today is an important date in the calendar for landlords and letting agents in England, as it means that the Tenant Fees Act is fully in force and the transitional period has ended.“The implication for TDS is that we should no longer see deposit disputes where landlords or letting agents seek to make claims for things like unpaid check-in or check-out fees.”Legal expert comment“The Act is not very well-worded and the guidance issued by the MHCLG is unclear in several areas. For example, it is illogical to prohibit landlords and tenants reasonably pre-agreeing  the cost of an end of tenancy clean, which gives tenants a clear understanding of their liabilities,” says Neli Borisova (let), a solicitor in the commercial litigation team at law firm JMW,“The need to justify cleaning costs in each case potentially creates a further point for dispute between landlords and tenants.“The widening of the Act will inevitably add pressure to landlords and letting agents who are already facing significant financial challenge due to coronavirus. Businesses are having to adapt at speed on many fronts. It is also unlikely that the changes required by the Act are on landlords’ and agents’ radars at the moment.“Smaller agents will undoubtedly struggle the most as tenants’ fees represent a significant part of their income and many of them, just like other smaller businesses, may already be on the brink of closing down.”Read more about the fees ban.nelis borisova JMW Solicitors ARLA Propertymark ban on tenant fees David Cox June 1, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Cruice, a Vietnam veteran now retired and living in Ocean City.He said Memorial Day is about remembering those “tested in the crucible in the field of battle,” and he listed the numbers of service men and women killed in each war.“There is only one number you need to remember,” he said. “In all wars, over a million of your citizens have given up their lives.”“A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for a friend. Ladies and gentleman, freedom is never free.”His keynote address was the central part of a ceremony that included Ocean City Intermediate School student Julia Wilson singing the national anthem and “God Bless America,” a POW-MIA ceremony and the reading of the honor roll of Ocean City veterans killed in action.The Sons of the American Legion passed out wristbands that read “Free POW Sgt.
