Julien Bonnaire crunched by a late hit

first_imgSunday Apr 20, 2008 Julien Bonnaire crunched by a late hit With thanks to ‘Merjamone’ on the Rugbydump Forums, we’ve dug up a brutal shoulder-to-solar plexus encounter in the form of Bourgoin’s replacement lock, Karena Wihongi, and Clermont’s flanker, Julien Bonnaire.Though there appeared to be no real damage on Bonnaire in this game from last weekend, other than a hefty winding, it’s fair to say that Bonnaire may opt to offer oncoming tacklers a shoulder next time, instead of an open rib cage.This leads me to the legality of the challenge, which is nonexistent, however as Merjamone on the forums pointed out: He most likely wasn’t expecting a kick and did apologize straight afterwards.Your thoughts?

McCarty leads No. 8 Texas to a 71-58 win over TCU

first_imgReddIt Music professor says Placido Domingo harassed her, grabbed her breast Previous articleFrogs can’t overcome No. 19 Baylor, lose 86-71Next articleBlood drive helps students give back to those in need Associated Press RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook printAUSTIN, Texas (AP) — On a night when the Texas Longhorns celebrated the careers of four departing seniors, a sophomore showed the basketball program is in good hands for the future.Brooke McCarty scored 16 points and matched a career-best with eight assists and No. 8 Texas beat TCU 71-58 Saturday night.The Longhorns (26-2, 15-2 Big 12) can tie Baylor for the conference championship with a win in Waco on Monday night in the final regular season game.McCarty made four 3-pointers. Senior center Imani Boyette contributed 12 points and nine rebounds.Zahna Medley led TCU (15-13, 7-10) with 15 points. Jada Butts scored 12.The Longhorns have won 15 Big 12 games for the first time since 2002-03, when they reached the NCAA Final Four. Texas finished 15-1 that season.Texas was sloppy at times offensively against TCU, committing 19 turnovers. Coach Karen Aston said players were anxious on senior night.“We didn’t have a really great flow,” Aston said. “But I absolutely can’t complain about a team that is 26-2.”Texas struggled in the first quarter but took a 36-27 halftime lead primarily because of McCarty and Brianna Taylor. McCarty had seven points and four assists in the second quarter, and Taylor added six points and two assists.McCarty ignited the rally with a deft pass to Taylor for a basket inside. Taylor returned the favor, assisting on McCarty’s 3-point basket. McCarty then stole a TCU pass, converting the turnover into a fast-break layup, and followed up with a driving basket.TCU coach Raegan Pebley said McCarty has multiple assets.“IQ first and foremost,” Pebley said. “Work ethic and skill. I know she also has tremendous players surrounding her.”Texas turned five TCU turnovers into eight points in that second quarter. The Longhorns scored six fast-break points in the period.“Their defense picked up quite a bit,” Pebley said.Medley initiated a comeback attempt with 10 points in the third quarter, and her driving shot cut the Texas lead to four with 4 minutes remaining in the period. But McCarty responded with a pair of 3-pointers, and Texas finished the period with the same nine-point lead it had at halftime.Texas received a boost in the third quarter from the 6-foot-7 Boyette, who made four baskets inside over the shorter Horned Frogs.That effort came after a rough first half in which Boyette put herself in foul trouble and missed a fast-break layup attempt.“For the record, I was trying to dunk,” Boyette said. “It got a little crazy.”TIP-INSTCU: The Horned Frogs fell to 2-37 against Texas. TCU has never won a game in Austin. … Senior Zahna Medley’s 15 points left her three short of breaking Sandora Irvin’s career scoring record for TCU.Texas: Longhorn starters Boyette, Empress Davenport and Brady Sanders each picked up two fouls in the first half and combined to play only 5 minutes of the second quarter. … Sanders started for the first time this season because it was senior night.TCU SHORTHANDEDThe Horned Frogs were without two players who are suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules — starter Veja Hamilton and sub Destynee Hives-McCray. Hamilton averages 10 points a game.THE STORIES THEY TELLAs senior night approached, Boyette recalled how Texas recruited her to the school twice. Boyette, who is from Los Angeles, signed with Texas when Gail Goestenkors was the coach. Goestenkors resigned before Boyette arrived on campus. Karen Aston took over as coach and brought her staff to Los Angeles to make sure their prized recruit would still become a Longhorn.“I love Texas, so it didn’t matter,” Boyette said. “They had to convince my dad (Kevin Stafford) more than they had to convince me. When (Aston) was re-recruiting me, she came to Compton, California and sat in an all-black church and participated in a Baptist service, the only white woman there. It was wonderful.”UP NEXTTCU hosts Kansas on Monday.Texas is at Baylor on Monday.Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Coronavirus updates: More than 3 million cases worldwide

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed over 208,000 people worldwide.More than 3 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks. Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 972,000 diagnosed cases and at least 55,118 deaths.Here’s how the news is developing on Monday. All times Eastern:1:01 p.m.: Cuomo says some NY counties may be ready to open on May 15New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that he will likely be extending the shelter-in-place orders for several counties past the state’s current May 15 deadline.“In some regions you could make the cause that you could un-pause in other parts of the state,” he said during his daily briefing.The number of new coronavirus-related hospitalizations is around 1,000 a day, according to the state’s data. There were 337 new deaths recorded on Sunday, bringing the total number of New York COVID-19 fatalities to 17,303, according to the state data.Cuomo reiterated that the state needed to do more testing and contact tracing in order to properly open parts of the state.12:20 p.m.: New York cancels presidential primaryNew York State’s Board of Elections voted to drop the presidential primary that was initially postponed to June 23.The board’s Democratic members voted during a phone meeting and said it was costly to hold the election after Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden. Sanders had pushed for the primary to continue and urged the board to keep the date and find alternatives to in-person voting.New York became the first state to not hold its presidential primary this year. The state’s Republicans canceled their presidential primary in February since the president was the only person on the ballot.When asked about the decision, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he would defer to the election board.“I’m not going to second guess the board of elections. I know there are a number of election employees who are nervous about conducting an election but I’ll leave it up to the board of elections,” he said during his daily briefing.Special elections in select New York counties that are slated for June 23 will still go on, and all voters will have a chance to vote via absentee ballots, according to the board of elections.10:41 a.m.: NYC to open up 40 miles of streets to pedestrians, will hire 1,000 disease detectivesNew York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that he and the city council came to an agreement over a plan that would shut down 40 miles of streets to vehicular traffic and give people more free space as the weather gets warmer.De Blasio said during his daily briefing on Monday that there has been concern about big crowds gathering in parks and said it was sensible to spread them out. The mayor said that he is committed to opening up to 100 miles of streets to pedestrians if need be.“The focus here will be on … where the need is greatest. There are so many communities that have been hardest hit by COVID,” he said.The exact locations will be determined by the mayor’s office, city council, police and transportation department, and de Blasio said one of the locations eyed for the program are the streets near parks.“We will capture the natural flow of people,” he said “One of the most important places to open is where people are going anyways.”The mayor also announced that the city will hire 1,000 contact tracers, or disease detectives, to help with the city’s coronavirus response. He called on any medical worker with relevant experience to apply at the city’s Fund for Public Health’s website“If you had experience in health care field, if you want to lend your talents to the fight, we need you immediately,” de Blasio said.9:27 a.m.: Russian military reports over 2,000 positive casesThe Russian military has reported more than 2,000 cases of COVID-19 among its servicemen, civilian employees and cadets.Russia’s Ministry of Defense revealed on Sunday night that at least 874 military servicemen and 245 civilian employees have tested positive for the disease.Another 971 positive cases were found among cadets and teachers at military schools across the country, according to the defense ministry.More than 87,000 people in Russia have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and at least 794 of them have died, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.8:04 a.m.: USNS Comfort getting ready to depart New York CityThe U.S. Navy is planning for its hospital ship to depart New York City on Thursday and return to the naval base in Norfolk, Virginia. The USNS Comfort has been docked in the city for weeks to help area hospitals with the influx of patients amid the coronavirus pandemic. Medical staff were seen aboard the naval hospital ship Monday morning, breaking down the medical stations and taking inventory.Before the vessel can depart, Navy officials must go through a checklist and make sure everything is functioning. Weather could also be a determining factor on whether the ship can leave Thursday. Medical personnel who worked in the ship’s coronavirus ward will begin their 14-day isolation on board. It’s unclear where they will continue isolating once the ship arrives back in Norfolk.7:12 a.m.: Volkswagen reopens Europe’s largest car factory after coronavirus shutdownVolkswagen, the world’s largest automaker by sales, resumed production at its biggest factory on Monday. Some 8,000 employees returned to the plant in the northern German city of Wolfsburg, the largest car factory in Europe, with “significantly expanded” measures to protect the health of the company’s workforce, according to a press release from Volkswagen. The company said it expects some 1,400 cars to have been built at the Wolfsburg plant by the end of this week. Next week, production will be ramped up to more than 6,000 vehicles — approximately 40% of production prior to the start of the coronavirus pandemic. “Step-by-step resumption of production is an important signal for the workforce, dealerships, suppliers and the wider economy,” Ralf Brandstaetter, chief operating officer of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, said in a statement Monday. “In terms of managing the crisis, though, this is just the first step. Additional momentum is needed to stimulate demand in Germany and throughout Europe so that production volumes can be successively increased.”Volkswagen said it has imposed new measures at the factory for hygiene and physical distancing. Employees are expected to take their temperatures at home every morning and go through a health checklist before they leave for work. Walkway diversions have been set up at the plant to avoid contacts, while markers on the floors will help employees maintain a 1.5-meter distance from one another. Face masks must be worn in areas where this is not possible. The company said employees are also being given more time to disinfect their tools, and several hundred additional hand-washing facilities are being installed throughout the Wolfsburg plant. Volkswagen was forced to halt production at the factory and several others in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.6:27 a.m.: France reports major drop in daily death tollFrance has reported a major drop in its daily death toll from the novel coronavirus.The European country recorded 242 more deaths on Sunday, down from 369 new deaths the previous day, bringing the national tally to 22,856, according to health officials.The number of new deaths that occurred in hospitals — 152 — was the lowest daily toll so far in the country’s battle against the outbreak.France is one of the worst-affected countries in the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 162,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The country and several others in Europe are preparing to loosen restrictions after several weeks of total lockdowns.6:08 a.m.: Italy unveils plan for life after lockdownItalian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte laid out a plan on Sunday night for gradually easing restrictions across the country after seven weeks of lockdown.Construction sites, factories and wholesale supply businesses can resume work Monday or as soon as they implement safety measures against the novel coronavirus, Conte said.Starting May 4, parks will reopen, people will be allowed to visit relatives within the same region, restaurants can provide takeaway services and athletes will be able to resume training for individual sports. However, Conte insisted that social distancing must remain at all times and large gatherings will not be permitted.“If you love Italy, keep your distance,” Conte said in a televised address to the nation on Sunday night.Then if all goes well, shops, museums and libraries will reopen on May 18, followed by bars, restaurants, cafes and beauty salons on June 1. Schools, however, will not reopen before September, Conte said.Italy, one of the worst-hit countries in the coronavirus pandemic, has been under a nationwide lockdown since March 9. More than 197,000 people in the European country have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and over 26,000 have died, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.4:42 a.m.: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson returns to work after recoveryU.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson returned to work Monday after recovering from COVID-19.A week after being admitted to a London hospital for worsening coronavirus symptoms, Johnson was discharged on April 12 and continued to recuperate at home. He had spent three days in intensive care.The prime minister delivered a statement Monday morning for the first time since his battle with the novel coronavirus.“I’m sorry I’ve been away from my desk for much longer than I would have liked,” Johnson told reporters outside his official residence and office in London, 10 Downing Street. “If this virus were a physical assailant, an unexpected and invisible mugger — which I can tell you from personal experience it is — then this is the moment when we have begun together to wrestle it to the floor.”More than 154,000 people in the United Kingdom have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and at least 20,795 have died from the disease, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University. Johnson said the country is making progress in its efforts to control the virus outbreak and there are “real signs now that we are passing through the peak,” with the number of admissions to National Health Service hospitals down and fewer COVID-19 patients in intensive care.“And that’s why we are now beginning to turn the tide,” he said. “We collectively flattened the peak.”The prime minister acknowledged the impact the nationwide lockdown has had on the U.K. economy and its citizens, but he indicated it would be premature to start lifting the restrictions now.“I can see the longterm consequences of lockdown as clearly as anyone,” he said. “And yet we must also recognize the risk of a second spike, the risk of losing control of that virus.”Johnson told reporters a new wave of infections and death would be an “economic disaster” for the country.“I refuse to throw away all the effort and sacrifice of the British people and to risk a second major outbreak and huge loss of life and the overwhelming of the NHS,” he said. “I ask you to contain your impatience because I believe we are coming now to the end of the first phase of this conflict.”Once officials are certain the first phase is over, the prime minister said, then it will be time to move onto the “second phase” in which the country continues to suppress the disease while beginning to gradually ease restrictions and reopen the economy.“And in that process, difficult judgments will be made,” he added, “and we simply cannot spell out now how fast or slow or even when those changes will be made, though clearly the government will be saying much more about this in the coming days.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgSUPPORT A “HOME OWNED AND HOME GROWN” RESTAURANT-BAR ON WEST FRANKLIN STREETIn our 15 years in the publishing business we have never experienced such opened support for a project shown by average everyday citizens.  What is so impressive about this movement is that the majority of these people could care less about the political happenings at the Civic Center.Over the last several months members of the Zoning Appeals Board and successful Restaurant-Bar owner and developer Kerry Chesser have been discussing the merits of a new West Franklin street Restaurant-Bar. Today Mr. Chesser and the Board shall meet at 4:00 P M on the 3rd floor of the Civic Center to discuss his petition to develop a Restaurant-Bar on West Franklin street.  At the last Zoning Appeals Board meeting the board was deadlocked with 3 for and 3 against vote.  One board member was absent.  We are expecting that all 7 board members will attend todays meeting.Yesterday we posted on our site what we consider a simple “Readers Poll’ question concerning Mr. Chesser’s desire to open a Restaurant-Bar on West Franklin street.  Our ‘READERS POLL” questions was as follows: Do you feel that the Zoning Board of Appeals should approve the request to allow a new upscale Restaurant-Bar to be located on West Franklin street?  We are stunned by the number of votes this poll generated.  As of 2;00 A M the results were as follows: 1214 people voted on our ‘Readers Poll” question.  1137 people voted YES.  49 voted No and 28 said they had no idea.  This is by far the largest amount of votes every generated on any City County Observer “Readers Poll”.   It’s important to point out that this poll isn’t scientific but it should be considered trendy.For many years all we heard from members of the Area Chamber of Commerce, elected , appointed City and County officials we need to have more “Home Owned and Home Grown” businesses in order that Evansville/Vanderburgh County can become an even more progressive community.  This is exactly what self made businessman Kerry Chesser is trying to do on West Franklin street.  This why we are surprise that all of sudden the Zoning Appeals Board is considering rejecting Mr. Chesser’s petition to establish an upscale Restaurant-Bar in the West Franklin Street area.Today at 4:00 P M the Zoning Appeals Board shall meet and discuss the final fate of a much needed project for the West Franklin Street area.  We urge you to attend this meeting and stand up and express your desire for the Zoning Appeals Board to approve a Restaurant-Bar located on West Franklin street owned and developed by businessman Kerry Chesser!FOOTNOTE:  Please take time and go to our “READERS POLL” and cast your vote on this issue.  .FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
