HAMILTON, NEW ZEALAND – OCTOBER 08: Josh Tatupu of Otago off loads the ball in a tackle during the round 11 ITM Cup match between Waikato and Otago at Waikato Stadium on October 8, 2010 in Hamilton, New Zealand. (Photo by Sandra Mu/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Tatupu trying his hand at English rugbyExeter Chiefs newcomer Josh Tatupu said the chance to sample rugby life in England was one of the reasons behind his decision to join the Aviva Premiership club this summer.The 25-year-old, who is equally adept on both the wing and in the centre, is one of nine new faces Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter has brought to Sandy Park as the Devon club look to tackle their second season in English rugby’s top flight. Arriving from New Zealand last weekend, the Samoan international has quickly been thrown in at the deep end as he joined his new team-mates for a testing first few days of pre-season.“It’s good to be finally here with the Chiefs,” said Tatupu. “The club seems very professional and everybody is putting in a lot of hard work. I’ve been in a hotel for the first few days, but I’m moving into my house this week, so I should really start to settle in soon. All the boys, though, have been very welcoming and I’m looking forward to it all.”Having previously plied his trade with Super Rugby side Western Force and Melbourne Storm (Rugby League) in Australia, as well as Otago in New Zealand and, more recently, with French outfit Castres, Tatupu arrives in England with a wealth of experience already at his disposal.It is, however, the opportunity to try his hand at English rugby which appeals to him right now. He added: “It was something new and different for me to try out. I remember when I played for the Force against a few English sides a few years back, I really enjoyed the trip. I thought England was a nice place.“Also I was keen to become a Premiership player and try my hand at another style of the game. Over in France I did OK, but my partner didn’t speak French, so she found it hard over there and she was keen to come to England as well.” “As I said, I am looking forward to it. I’ve spoken to a few of the boys, like Jason Shoemark and Junior Poluleuligaga, and they’ve told me it is a lot more physical compared to back home.”For now though, Tatupu’s priority is making sure he gets himself fully integrated into Chiefs life and in fine fettle for the new season. That means working hard during the pre-season build up which, he says, has similarities to life back home.“It’s a tough time for any player, but you know you have to work hard and just get stuck into it,” said the Christchurch-born player. “You have to make the most of this time to ensure you get all your fitness in – already though the trainers are making sure of that! “I’ve only been here a few days so far, but it’s not a whole lot different to what I have done in the past, the weights side of things are pretty similar and. The biggest difference, I suppose, is when I was in Australia you had a 14-week pre-season and the first half of that was all running and you didn’t see a ball at all. Here it’s good that we are incorporating the anaerobic games into our programmes and that we are getting to do some rugby early on rather than just running up hills all day.”Certainly Tatupu can expect some hill running in the coming weeks, but with pre-season tests against Connacht, Cornish Pirates and Scarlets on the horizon, the chance to play some ball is never too far away.

Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 27, 2021 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Harvard, Tufts, EH&E Scientists Find Corn Ethanol Reduces Carbon Emissions by Nearly… A comprehensive new study by scientists from Harvard University, Tufts University and Environmental Health & Engineering Inc. shows that using corn ethanol in place of gasoline reduces greenhouse gas emissions by almost half.The “central best estimate” of corn ethanol’s carbon intensity is 46% lower than the average carbon intensity of gasoline, according to the study’s authors, with some corn ethanol in the market today achieving a 61% reduction.The study credits recent efficiency improvements and the adoption of new technologies for the steady reduction in the lifecycle carbon intensity of corn ethanol. The new study will be published in an upcoming volume of Environmental Research Letters, a well-respected academic journal.“This new study provides further validation that ethanol is a highly effective tool that for decarbonizing liquid transportation fuels and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector,” said Renewable Fuels Association President & CEO Geoff Cooper. “And with ethanol, we don’t have to wait and hope for technological and economic breakthroughs. It’s here today at a low cost and already has a proven track record. Ethanol can and should be allowed to do more to contribute to the fight against climate change, and that starts by breaking down the barriers to higher blends like E15, E30, and flex fuels like E85. As President Biden’s administration and the new Congress consider actions and policies to address climate change, we encourage them to examine the best available science and properly account for the critical role ethanol and other renewable fuels can play in securing immediate GHG reductions.”Cooper pointed out that the scientists found that emissions from land-use change are only “a minor contributor” to the overall carbon footprint of corn ethanol, accounting for just 7% of total GHG emissions.According to EH&E’s Chief Science Officer David MacIntosh, one of the study’s authors, “This research provides an up-to-date accounting of corn starch ethanol’s GHG profile in comparison to that of gasoline refined from crude oil. The results of this research are timely for the scientific, public health, legislative, and business communities seeking to establish a net-zero carbon economy while addressing related technological, political and economic challenges.”For more information on ethanol’s carbon footprint, check out RFA’s reports and studies section here.Source: RFA news release Harvard, Tufts, EH&E Scientists Find Corn Ethanol Reduces Carbon Emissions by Nearly 50% Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleHoosier Ag Today Podcast for 1-27-21Next articleNew Animal Sciences Department Head Joins Purdue Agriculture Leadership Team Hoosier Ag Today

Before the Bench of Justice Pankaj Mithal and Justice Rajan Roy, the Senior Counsel appearing for the State Government, S.V. Raju also attempted to justify the cremation of the victim in the night & he contended that the District Magistrate did not commit any wrong in this regard. It may be noted that on the last hearing, the Bench had asked Senior Advocate Shri S. V. Raju as to whether it was fair and reasonable to allow the District Magistrate to continue at Hathras during pendency of the investigation as also these proceedings before it regarding illegal cremation etc. when he was in the thick of things? Notably, dissatisfied with the reasons given by the UP administration for hasty cremation of the body the Dalit woman, the Allahabad High Court had on Tuesday (13th October) expressed its displeasure on the entire incident and deprecated the local authorities for violating the victim and her family’s human and fundamental rights. CBI’s Submission On the last hearing, the Allahabad High Court had called for a status report from the CBI on the status of its investigation into the Hathras gang-rape, also inquiring as to how much time would be required to complete the probe. Responding to the query, Advocate Anurag Singh, the Counsel for the C.B.I. submitted a report before the Court pertaining to the status of the investigation by the C.B.I. which the Court perused. The Court directed that the same be put back in a sealed cover. Further, the Counsel informed the Court that investigation by Central Bureau of Investigation (C.B.I.) “is expected to be completed by 10.12.2020.” Victim’s Family’s Submission Advocate Seema Kushwaha, the Counsel appearing for the victim’s family submitted before the Court that a job, which was promised by the Government to one of the members of the victim’s family, has not yet been provided. To this, the Court directed the Counsel for the State to ascertain the facts in this regard and assist the Court accordingly on the next date. Further, the Counsel for the Victim’s Family placed before the Court, a letter of the District Magistrate dated 23.10.2020 wherein the statement of one of the family member of the victim allegedly made before this Court finds mention that the family did not want the compensation announced by the State Government and seeking its opinion in this regard, has been referred. In response to this, she said that the family never declined to accept the compensation, but it was only in an emotional moment that one of the family members, who had been referred in the earlier order as ‘BW’ stated that “once we have lost the girl no amount of money can compensate her loss”. The Counsel told the Court that the Statement did not imply refusal to accept the compensation, yet such recitals have been made in the letter of the District Magistrate. State Government’s Submission On the last hearing, the Bench had asked Senior Advocate Shri S. V. Raju – would it not be appropriate to shift him elsewhere during the pendency of these proceedings without there being any stigma attached to such action only to ensure fairness and transparency in the matter? It may be noted that on Monday (02nd November) the Allahabad High Court had expressed its concern regarding the fact that Uttar Pradesh government was not taking any action against District Magistrate Pravin Kumar for fairness of the probe. The state government had assured the court of a decision in this regard by November 25. Now, on Wednesday (25th November), when the Court asked Advocate Raju, Senior Counsel appearing for the State as to what are his instructions with regard to continuance of the District Magistrate at Hathras, the Counsel submitted that after pondering over the issue Government has decided not to transfer the District Magistrate. Stating reasons for the same he submitted before the Court:- Firstly, that a political game is being played and the transfer of District Magistrate has been made a political issue by political parties with oblique motive so as to exert political pressure. Secondly, he submitted that there is no question of the District Magistrate tampering with the evidence relevant to the investigation. Thirdly, security of the family is now in the hands of the C.R.P.F. with which the State Government and its authorities have no concern. Fourthly, the investigation itself is being conducted by the Central Bureau of Investigation and here also the State Government does not have any role. Noting the submissions made by the parties, the Court listed the matter for further hearing on 16.12.2020 at 3:15 P.M. Background The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court had taken suo moto cognizance of the Hathras gang rape case on Thursday (01st October), stating that is an “extremely sensitive” matter, touching upon the basic human/ fundamental rights of the citizens. Further, on Saturday (10th October) the Central Government had issued a notification for the investigation in the case by the CBI. Also, on Tuesday (27th October), the Supreme Court had asked the Allahabad High Court to monitor the on-going the CBI probe into the this matter. As regards the plea for transfer of trial outside the State of Uttar Pradesh, the CJI-led bench had stated that the question of transfer is left open until the investigation is completed.

WABC-TV(NEW YORK) — A man is in custody after a possible road-rage incident led to the death of a New York City firefighter, law enforcement sources told ABC News. Faizal Coto, 33, of the New York Fire Department, was killed Sunday morning, police said. Coto’s car collided with the suspect’s silver Infiniti on the Belt Parkway just before 5 a.m. Sunday, police said. The cars pulled over and shortly after the suspect’s car took off. The victim was found on the ground next to his car, unconscious and unresponsive with trauma to his face and head, police said. Coto was pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital. Surveillance video from that night showed Coto, a three-year FDNY employee, pulling his 2008 Ford Mustang over to the right shoulder of the road in the Bath Beach area of Brooklyn. Another vehicle then pulled up next to him. Coto was found on the side of the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn around 5 a.m., suffering from blunt force trauma to the head, police said. Joseph Desmond, the owner of the Infiniti involved in the incident, was arrested Monday by the U.S. Marshals in New Jersey, law enforcement sources told ABC News. No charges have been filed against Desmond, 29, in connection with Coto’s death, sources said, though Coto’s death was ruled a homicide, according to police. Authorities released images of the vehicle of interest, which they described as a gray or silver Infiniti G35. Desmond is being held in Middlesex County, New Jersey, on charges of being a fugitive from justice in New York, sources said. Meanwhile, firefighters gathered in Brooklyn Monday, donning protection gear and stiff salutes, to pay tribute to the fallen officer. Coto served in Brooklyn’s Coney Island neighborhood.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
