Hat-trick hero Mitchell gets ‘pass mark’

first_imgAs the Roosters ran riot in the first half to open up a 28-0 lead at the break Mitchell was one of the major beneficiaries, scoring two tries in the first 40 minutes before sealing the 32-18 Telstra Premiership win with the final try of the night.Robinson was unaware that Mitchell had even scored the first hat-trick of his young career and said the decision to move him into the centres was made just two days after the 2016 season came to a close.After scoring 10 tries in 16 games at fullback last season the freakishly gifted athlete looked set for a lengthy tenure as the Roosters’ custodian but the arrival of Michael Gordon in the off-season saw Mitchell moved to left centre.He caused the Titans defence issues with virtually every touch in the first half yet despite his three tries and seven tackle busts only received a muted accolade from his coach.”They’re there to finish those tries and score those tries,” was Robinson’s blunt assessment.”People are going to value that but I didn’t know he’d scored three until someone reminded me after the game.”We’re looking at the other stuff that was good and it wasn’t a bad game from him. It was a pass mark from what we want from our centres but it’s a good start to our season.”Mitchell declined to be interviewed after the game but his partner on the left edge, Roosters winger Daniel Tupou, believes they merely scratched the surface of what’s possible in their first game together.Tupou was among the Roosters’ best with some damaging runs (210 metres) and six offloads and says he has to be alert at all times as to what Mitchell may produce.”It’s a good start, especially for us two as a new combo,” Tupou told”We’ve still got stuff we need to work on but in the meantime we’re happy with that start and we’ll just get ready for next week.”I’ve just got to adjust to whatever he does because he can play and you don’t know what he’s going to come up with.”He’s a good attacker so I’ve got to be alert all the time because he can offload at any time.”Tupou’s six offloads were four more than the next highest from either team on Saturday night with wing partner Shaun Kenny-Dowall coming up with two of his own.A freedom to promote the ball granted by coach Trent Robinson allowed the Roosters wingers to generate plenty of momentum for their team in the first half but Tupou admitted they pushed their luck too often in the second term.Tupou twice came up with turnovers after making long breaks late in the second half that kept the Titans within reach and said the fatigue factor led to some poor decision-making.”Fatigue just took over and I should have just held the ball there,” Tupou said.”I was a bit filthy on those two errors but I’ve just got to improve and back it up again on Thursday.”[Robinson] does [allow us to play footy] which is good but tonight we overdid it so we’ve just got to go back and take the ball up and get a quick play-the-ball and get our sets started for the boys.”The first half was pretty good, we should have just held onto the ball more in the second half.”last_img read more

“Mad rush” for land at Millie’s Hideout – Region 10 REO

first_imgAs some 628 applications have been received for land at Millie’s Hideout, there continues to be a “mad rush” for land, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) Regional Executive Officer (REO) Orrin Gordon said.According to the REO, with the Region Ten administration’s efforts in constructing a road that will lead to the Berbice River, the interest by farmers and others to secure land there continues to be significant.Millie’s Hideout is the area in Region 10 where Police conduct constant raids as it is a haven for marijuana cultivation. This year alone, Police have unearthed and destroyed thousands of marijuana plants on large acreage in that area.According to Gordon, Government had given the region $13 million, which was supposed to complete some two miles of road; however, they were able to complete nine miles instead, and is determined that the project which was originally pegged at $300 million can be completed for one-fifth of that amount.Gordon said that some 628 persons have applied for land at the area, noting that the interest in farming continues to increase, and stressed that the public is becoming aware that agriculture is critically important to Guyana.He disclosed that from the 628 applications, the Region has some 21,000 acres of land that will be distributed among the applicants. He added that the region is awaiting the green light from Guyana Lands and Survey Commission before the applications are processed.The REO stressed that the greatest challenge facing the Region Ten administration in its distribution is that the Lands and Survey Commission is not moving as fast as they expected them to move, noting that its slowing the process.REO Gordon declared that the lands that the Region intends to distribute are for serious farmers, warning that the monitoring and evaluation process would be rigged so as to ensure that those who are genuine about farming can benefit.In June, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo called on President David Granger to answer for a massive distribution of prime State lands to certain employees of the Ministry of the Presidency, as well as to cronies in the PNC-led A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) fraction of the coalition Government and officials of the States Assets Recovery Agency (SARA), which were supposed to recover State assets.Meanwhile, the Opposition Leader said its quite worrying since a top-ranking official of Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) also received land. That land is located at Millie’s Hideout in Linden.last_img read more

Liberation for mammals?

first_imgThe second burst had shown up in the fossil record, MacPhee said. But he said the new study explains why scientists have been unable to find relatively modern-looking ancestors of the creatures known from that time: Without any evolutionary boost from the dinosaur demise, those ancestors were still relatively primitive. Other experts praised the large scale of the new evolutionary tree, which used a controversial “supertree” method to combine data covering the vast majority of mammal species. It challenges paleontologists to find new fossils that can shed light on mammal history, said Greg Wilson, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. William J. Murphy of Texas A&M University, who is working on a similar project, said no previous analysis had included so many mammal species. However, he said, “I don’t think this is the final word.” The study’s approach for assigning dates was relatively crude, he said, and some dates it produced for particular lineages disagree with those obtained by more updated methods. So as for its interpretation of what happened when the dinosaurs died off, “I’m not sure that conclusion is well-founded,” Murphy said. John Gittleman, a study co-author and director of the University of Georgia Institute of Ecology, said the researchers considered a range of previously reported dates for when various lineages split. They found the overall conclusions of the study were not significantly affected by which dates they chose, he said. Researchers should now look at such things as the rise of flowering plants and a cooling of the worldwide climate to explain why ancestors of modern-day mammals took off before the dinosaurs died out, Gittleman said. The cause of the later boom is also a mystery, he said. The study’s family tree includes 4,510 species, more than 99 percent of mammal species covered by an authoritative listing published in 1993. (Nearly 300 species have since been added to the listing, but the researchers said that doesn’t affect their study’s conclusions.) To construct it, the researchers combined previously published work that relied on analysis of DNA, fossils, anatomy and other information. S. Blair Hedges, an evolutionary biologist at Pennsylvania State University, said the new work “pushes the envelope in the methods and data, and that’s really important.” He said the demise of the dinosaurs may have affected mammal evolution by influencing characteristics like body size rather than boosting the number of new species created. Such changes wouldn’t be picked up by the new study, he noted. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – Maybe you learned this in school: The big dinosaur die-off 65 million years ago was a liberation for mammals, and they quickly produced a bunch of new species that included ancestors of humans and other modern-day creatures. Remember? Well, a new study says, forget it. Scientists who constructed a massive evolutionary family tree for mammals found no sign of such a burst of new species at that time among the ancestors of present-day animals. Only mammals with no modern-day descendants showed that effect. “I was flabbergasted,” said study co-author Ross MacPhee, curator of vertebrate zoology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. At the time of the dinosaur demise, mammals were small, about the size of shrews and cats. The long-standing idea has been that once the dinosaurs were gone, mammals were suddenly free to exploit new food sources and habitats, and as a result they produced a burst of new species. The new study says that happened to some extent, but that the new species largely led to evolutionary dead ends. In contrast, no such explosion of species was found among the ancestors of modern-day mammals like rodents, cats, horses, elephants and people. Instead, researchers report in today’s issue of the journal Nature, they showed an initial burst between about 100 million and 85 million years ago, with another between about 55 million and 35 million years ago. The timing of that first period of development generally agrees with the conclusions of some previous studies of mammal DNA, which argue for a much earlier origin of some mammal lineages than the fossil record does. last_img read more

Arsenal v Barcelona: This is exactly what will happen tonight at the Emirates

first_img4 Arsenal face the unenviable task of stopping Lionel Messi and co. in the Champions League on Tuesday as Barcelona travel to north London.While there are many pundits predicting a goal-fest for the Catalan giants, here is a more light-hearted prediction of what could unfold at the Emirates…Francis Coquelin begins the night by scything down Messi in the opening minutes and somehow escapes a red card. However, Arsene Wenger claims he “did not see it” as he was too busy trying to zip up his coat.via GIPHYArsenal start well, as Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez go close and belief engulfs the home fans.The Gunners duly take the lead, as Olivier Giroud’s freshly-styled quiff gets enough on the ball to guide Sanchez’s cross into the bottom corner.  via GIPHYSatisfied with their opening few minutes work, Arsenal sit back and find themselves 3-1 down 15 minutes later, with Neymar bagging a brace and Luis Suarez getting the third.The camera cuts to Thierry Henry celebrating in the stands with an Arsenal-Barcelona ‘half and half’ scarf. Jack Wilshere challenges Lionel Messi in 2011 Per Mertesacker – left in a daze after fast moving objects by the names of Neymar and Suarez flash past him – is withdrawn at half time at the request of Hollywood director Peter Jackson, who wants the German to star as an Ent tree-like being in his next adaptation of a J.R.R Tolkien book.via GIPHYAn interactive poll for who should replace Mertesacker takes place during the break and is won by Gunnersaurus, who immediately lines up next to Laurent Koscielny at the back.Twitter then erupts and celebrity fan Piers Morgan makes a witty comment about Gunnersaurus being only the second footballing dinosaur on display, after Wenger. Barcelona dominate possession in the second half, which begins to frustrate Mesut Ozil, who is so concerned about his assist-to-game ratio he begins to play killer balls through to ‘MSN’, and is applauded by Gunners for his imagination and ‘out-of-the-box thinking’.via GIPHYOne of Ozil’s passes finds Lionel Messi, who has had a stinker of a game due to his complete inability to score against Petr Cech (a run which now stretches to eight games), but the Argentine is brought down in the area after a clumsy foul from Gunnersaurus.Messi, totally psyched out by Cech, slips as he steps up to strike the ball, but the ball rolls two yards into the path of Suarez, who taps in. The commentators hail Messi’s genius, while the watching Thierry Henry and Robert Pires get their coats.Meanwhile, Wenger throws a pound coin in the direction of Suarez and whispers “there’s 40 million more where that came from”.Despite losing 4-1, Arsenal win a Twitter poll to decide the most likely Champions League winners and the home side take a celebratory selfie…center_img 4 4 4last_img read more

Rose Bowl activists sue to stop initiative

first_imgRose Bowl neighborhood activists filed suit Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court seeking to thwart Pasadena councilman Chris Holden’s effort to put an initiative on the ballot that would require the city to resume negotiations with the league. The suit asks that the court stop the initiative process because it violates several provisions of state law, including the naming of a private corporation in this case, the NFL in an initiative.

Benson’s statement came two days after New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin said talk of moving the Saints in the wake of Hurricane Katrina was a shameful act of disrespect to fans who supported the franchise for nearly four decades. But Benson said he wanted to “make it clear that no decisions have been made regarding our future plans,” and added that none would be made until the 2005 season is over. “There are many factors that will affect the future location of our team,” Benson said. “That is also true of many other New Orleans-based companies that are faced with deciding their future homes.” Viking punishment Minnesota coach Mike Tice said he would consider reducing playing time as punishment for Vikings found to have acted inappropriately or criminally at an infamous boat party. “Ultimately, we’re seeking to ask the court that the city isn’t forced to spend money on an invalid measure,” said Fredric Woocher, an attorney representing Pasadena First, a political action committee formed mainly by Rose Bowl neighborhood residents. :-by Billy Witz center_img Tice said he didn’t expect any punishments to be announced before Sunday’s game against Green Bay.
