Ireland v France – preview with teams and match stat attack!

first_img* Brian O’Driscoll is within touching distance of yet another remarkable milestone – the Championship try-scoring record that has stood since 1933. The Irish captain and try scoring machine took his RBS 6 Nations tournament tally to 23 with Ireland’s only try in their 13-11 win over Italy in Rome last Saturday, one behind Championship record-holder Ian Smith, the Scotland wing.* France have won 8 of the last 9 meetings between the countries including RWC2003 and RWC2007 successes –Ireland’s win was in their 2009 Grand Slam season* The five draws have been: 1950 (3‐3 at Paris); 1965 (3‐3 at Dublin), 1971 (9‐9 at Dublin), 1979 (9‐9 at Dublin) & 1985 (15‐15 at Dublin)* All matches – Played 86, Ireland won 29, France won 52, Drawn 5* Biggest Wins: Ireland (Points) 31‐43 2006,  Ireland recovered from 3‐43 down, Margin 24‐0 1913* Biggest Win: France Points 45‐10 1996, Margin 44‐5 2002* Ireland Changes: Jamie Heaslip returns to the Ireland side for the match with France at Dublin in the only change from the team that narrowly beat Italy last weekend in Rome. Heaslip returns at No 8 after being out since December with an ankle injury, which allows Sean O’Brien to move to flanker in place of Denis Leamy, who reverts to the bench. Shane Jennings, the only player not to feature in Rome, drops out of the matchday 22.* Ireland Injuries: Tommy Bowe (knee) Stephen Ferris (knee) John Hayes Jerry Flannery (calf) Shane Horgan Geordan Murphy (broken foot) Andrew Trimble (broken hand) Rob Kearney (knee)* France Changes: France make one change to the starting XV from the team that beat Scotland in Paris last Saturday. Full-back Damien Traille switches to centre to replace Maxime Mermoz, who injured shoulder ligaments against the Scots, with Clement Poitrenaud coming off the bench to start at full-back. On the bench, Yannick Jauzion comes in for the promoted Poitrenaud, whilst Sylvain Marconnet is preferred to Luc Ducalcon as substitute prop. Vincent Clerc, a late replacement for David Skrela on the bench against Scotland, keeps his place. * France Injuries: Romain Millo‐Chluski (calf) Dimitri Szarzewski (achilles) Maxime Mermoz (shoulder ligaments v Scotland) David Skrela (calf injury in training before Scotland)But what do you think? Some predictions pls! Venue: Aviva Stadium, Dublin Date: Sunday, 13 February Kick-off: 3pm GMTCoverage: Live on BBC Two, Red Button and online from 1430-1700; Commentary on Radio 5 live and live text commentary on BBC Sport websiteAfter Ireland stuttered their way to a win over Italy last weekend and France put up an impressive showing in beating the Scots, Jamie Heaslip will really need to hit the ground running if he is to help Ireland win this encounter, writes Rugby World’s Katie Field. I am glad Jonathan Sexton has kept his place in the Ireland team. I know Ronan O’Gara was cool as a cucumber in slotting that winning drop-goal but it took a team effort to get him in position and Sexton might have landed it too. I am glad Declan Kidney has stuck with his front five. Italy had them under a lot of pressure in the scrums last week but this combination will only improve as they get used to playing together.It’s also great to see Marc Lievremont making minimal changes to his side. Maybe the catastrophic result against Australia in November has finally taught him that wholesale changes usually bring trouble. Surely Ireland can’t make as many mistakes as they did in Rome, where the knock-ons and bad passes were too numerous to count.They will need to improve enormously to beat a French side which looked powerful up front and super-confident behind. If both teams bring their A game to the Aviva it should be a great afternoon. Can’t wait!Teams:Ireland: L Fitzgerald (Leinster), F McFadden (Leinster), B O’Driscoll (Leinster, captain), G D’Arcy (Leinster), K Earls (Munster), J Sexton (Leinster), T O’Leary (Munster); C Healy (Leinster), R Best (Ulster), M Ross (Leinster), D O’Callaghan (Munster), P O’Connell (Munster), S O’Brien (Leinster), D Wallace (Munster), J Heaslip (Leinster).Replacements: S Cronin (Connacht), T Court (Ulster), L Cullen (Leinster), D Leamy (Munster), E Reddan (Leinster), R O’Gara (Munster), P Wallace (Ulster).France: Clement Poitrenaud (Toulouse); Yoann Huget (Bayonne), Aurelien Rougerie (Clermont), Damien Traille (Biarritz), Maxime Medard (Toulouse); Francois Trinh-Duc (Montpellier), Morgan Parra (Clermont); Thomas Domingo (Clermont), William Servat (Toulouse), Nicolas Mas (Perpignan), Julien Pierre (Clermont), Lionel Nallet (Racing Metro), Thierry Dusautoir (captain, Toulouse), Julien Bonnaire (Clermont), Imanol Harinordoquy (Biarritz).Replacements: Guilhem Guirado (Perpignan), Sylvain Marconnet (Biarritz), Jerome Thion (Biarritz), Sebastien Chabal (Racing Metro), Dimitri Yachvili (Biarritz), Yannick Jauzion (Toulouse), Vincent Clerc (Toulouse).Stat Attack|:center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The restoration and adaption of a 1905 former army drill hall in Sydney’s Inner West, involved the careful interweaving of the building’s original details and material palette with contemporary additions to create a relaxing home to suit the new owners. Although the original building had been altered substantially and unsympathetically in the 1990s by former owners, key elements remained intact or salvageable so the design approach was twofold: restore and reconstruct the drill hall’s key details; and introduce new architectural elements that responded to the brief, the form of the existing building and the site. Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderSave this picture!Street level floor planSave this picture!© Justin AlexanderKey design moves involved restoring the front façade, side elevations, slate roof, interior roof form, steel roof trusses, and double-height volume, before carefully stitching in new spaces and opening the building up to the landscaped garden. Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderAn over-scaled brick archway frames the entry at street level with large timber doors opening into the main hall where living, dining and kitchen areas flow together and connect with the large north-facing terrace and garden.

Bonham robotics teacher makes most of Fuel Your School

first_img Bonham robotics teacher makes most of Fuel Your School By admin – January 5, 2018 Bonham Middle School Robotics Coach Joshua Wimberley was recently awarded funding through Fuel Your School to buy some laptops that will let his students reprogram their robots on the fly.Chevron’s U.S. Fuel Your School program is a collaboration between Chevron and DonorsChoose.org that helps fund eligible classroom projects in several U.S. markets where Chevron has retail operations.Throughout October, Chevron contributes $1 for each fuel purchase of eight or more gallons at participating Chevron and Texaco stations, up to a specified amount in each community, to help fund eligible classroom projects at local public schools.In 2017, $200,000 was generated through the Fuel Your School program to help fund 254 classroom projects, including 123 focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), to help connect real-world experiences to classroom learning for 29,447 students at 66 public schools in Midland and Ector counties.Wimberley, who also coaches soccer and cross country for seventh and eighth-grade students, has 93 students in the robotics program — four sections of a little more than 23 seventh and eighth-grade students per section. Robotics is restricted to seventh and eighth grade, but he said he has talked to Principal James Ramage about having an introductory course for sixth-graders so they can grow into the team.Wimberley said this is his first year coaching the robotics team. Having moved over from the math department, he took over from Julia Kelton, who retired last year, has previous experience with Fuel Your School and was familiar with DonorsChoose.org. He used the program to replace some antiquated equipment in the science department.This year’s competition, set for Jan. 20, requires students to make changes in their programs.“They have a mystery task that the robot has to complete. They’re given a sealed envelope by the referee. They open it and it’s a simple programming instruction, but it has to be done on the field in front of the referee. The robot has to complete that task before they do anything else,” Wimberley said.“The robots are autonomous. As soon as the student presses the button to start the program, they’re hands off for the next two minutes as the robot completes all its challenge. … It was fortunate that I’d written the grant and Chevron stepped up and funded three laptops,” Wimberley said.Before he started teaching, Wimberley was a firefighter and owned an insurance agency.“… When I came on to campus, I didn’t see students as something to be educated. I see our students as the product that our business puts out. When we’re looking at our taxpayers and our employers and our community, to me those are our shareholders. Those are the people that we’re responsible to put out a good product,” Wimberley said.If the school is graduating students who are workforce ready and able to contribute to the community, so much the better, he added.The next robotics competition will be Jan. 20 at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.This year’s theme is “Mission to Mars.” The robot students will build is an unmanned Mars lander. There are a myriad of tasks the robot has to complete with obstacles and an alien life form thrown in.Wimberley said his goal is to get the students to teach themselves.“We’re real big on deadlines. I don’t give them a lot of redirection of, ‘Hey, stay on task. Stay on task.’ I give them a project they’ve got x number of days to complete the project, and when the deadline’s due, it’s due. If you chose to spend your time poorly that’s going to be reflected in your grading,” Wimberley said.“That’s the other part of the equation is teaching them time management and respect for deadlines,” he added.Seventh-graders Isaiah Rodarte and Xavier Sanchez are enjoying the class.Sanchez said he thinks he will be able to use some of what he learned when he gets older and both think the team will fare well at competition.“I’m excited,” Rodarte said. “I think we’ll do good.”Emilio and Julian Parra work on code to run the software for the Mindstorms robots at Bonham Middle School recently. The robotics team’s next competition will be Jan. 20 at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.Ruth Campbell/Odessa AmericanMore Information Twitter Bonham Middle School.Chevron’s Fuel Your School program.

Doctor dragged off United flight after watching viral video of himself: ‘I just cried’

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The Kentucky doctor seen in a viral video being forcibly removed off an United Airlines flight has spoken publicly for the first time since the 2017 incident, telling ABC News that while the ordeal caused distress for him and his family, he doesn’t regret standing his ground because it caused the airline to take a closer look at its policies.On April 9, 2017, David Dao was traveling from Chicago O’Hare International Airport to Louisville, Kentucky, on United Airlines Flight 3411 and already was in his seat with his seat belt fastened when an airline employee informed him that he would need to deplane because the flight was overbooked, he told ABC News.Fellow passengers took cellphone videos of a bloodied Dao being dragged off the plane.Even months after the incident, Dao found the video hard to watch.“I just cried,” he said.Dao said he stood his ground and refused to get off the plane because he felt he was being discriminated against and was trying to get back to Kentucky to oversee the opening of a clinic he founded for U.S. veterans. He and his wife started the clinic as a way to thank American servicemen and women, because he was plucked out of ocean waters by the U.S. Navy as he fled communism in his home country of Vietnam about 44 years ago, he said.He said while in his seat, belt still fastened, he was on the phone with a friend, asking for advice on whether he should get up, when the next thing he knew, he was being pulled from his seat. He doesn’t remember anything after he bumped his head on a low ceiling.“After that, to be honest, I don’t know what happened,” he said, adding that he heard a “big noise” and later woke up in the hospital with a trauma team surrounding him.The first few months were “horrible,” he said. He suffered a concussion, lacerations to his mouth and nose, and several of his teeth were knocked out, he said. He was put on suicide watch by hospital staff and later spent months learning to walk again, he said. Dao relied on his faith during his recovery, he said, adding that he made a promise to God that if he got better, he would devote his time to charity work. Since then, he has helped residents in Texas displaced by Hurricane Harvey and traveled to Vietnam and Cambodia to help install solar power in villages with no electricity, he said. Even in the Far East, people knew his story, he said.One elderly man approached him and asked, “You the one on airplane?” Dao said.“That touched me,” the doctor said, holding back tears.Dao still struggles with issues sleeping and with his concentration and balance, he said. While he’d run more than 20 marathons before the incident, now he can only do about 3 miles — with at least one of them by walking, he added.While United’s initial statement labeled Dao as “belligerent,” the airline later apologized, vowing to conduct a “thorough review” of the “truly horrific event.”Oscar Munoz, the CEO of United Airlines, said he felt “shame” when he saw the video.“This will never happen again,” Munoz told ABC News’ Good Morning America in an interview three days after the incident. “We are not going to put a law enforcement official onto a plane to take them off … to remove a booked, paid, seated passenger. We can’t do that.” When asked whether United should have done anything differently, Dao said the airline employees could have explained their reasoning for booting him from the flight “nicely” and “reasonably.”“That makes a difference,” he said.Still, the retired doctor said his ordeal actually was “positive” because the airline was willing to take a hard look at its policies and change them.“Everything happens with a reason,” he said.Weeks after the incident, the airline offered Dao a settlement that his attorney at the time, Thomas A. Demetrio, described as “amicable,” which Dao accepted. The settlement included a provision that the amount offered remain confidential.Dao said he decided to speak publicly for the first time to thank his supporters all over the world.United Airlines issued a statement to ABC News, saying the changes they’ve implemented since the incident “better serve out customers and further empower our employees.”“Flight 3411 was a defining moment for United Airlines and it is our responsibility to make sure we as a company and all of our 90,000 employees continue to learn from that experience. The changes we have implemented since that incident better serve our customers and further empower our employees,” according to the statement from United Airlines. “This year, we are focused more than ever on our commitment to our customers, looking at every aspect of our business to ensure that we keep their best interests at the center of everything that we do. As our CEO Oscar Munoz has said, we at United never want anyone in the United family to forget the experience of Flight 3411. It makes us a better airline, a more caring company and a stronger team.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
