first_imgSo that is another argument for reducing the numbers. With fewer players on the pitch, everybody is moving about more quickly and you don’t need behemoths coming on to pretend to scrummage. Your substitutes would be much more all-rounders, able to play in virtually any position. Lions great Ken Scotland says rugby must become 13-a-side to create space on the field If the laws were being properly applied, that would help rugby as well. Players going off their feet into rucks, or being taken out without the ball – there are things that aren’t being refereed. But I think criticism should be directed more at the actual laws than the referees.I’m also against a team having five or six or seven goes to gain a yard. That is killing the game. So I think you shouldn’t be allowed more than, say, six phases. You shouldn’t be able to go on hitting a brick wall without losing possession. “You shouldn’t be able to keep hitting a brick wall without losing possession. It’s killing the game” Congested area:Newcastle’s Luther Burrell is trapped by Bath (Getty) It could be that if you have been hammering away at your opponents for six plays, the opposition get the ball. They would have a penalty, basically.In saying this, you’ve got to be aware of the law of unintended consequences. You might make one law change and create two new problems. I think it’s something that has to be done but it’s got to be done very carefully.This article originally appeared in Rugby World magazine in January.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A result of doing that is that you would need fewer replacements. And your scrums would become virtually like rugby league scrums, which in effect is what union scrums are at the moment, except they have a referee orchestrating 16 people heaving and shoving and wasting time. The ball is put in squint yet it doesn’t come out quickly. The forwards continue to huff and puff, which is totally ridiculous. What you want is a quick heel to get the ball in and out quickly, not the game getting bogged down. Rugby Rant: Make rugby union 13-a-sideI WATCH club rugby, Heriot’s mainly, on most Saturday afternoons and also professional rugby on television. I took out a subscription on Amazon Prime for the Autumn Nations Cup. It’s clear the game at the moment has a problem. There is no space to play attacking, fluent rugby.We’re not going to get bigger pitches, so to create more space the obvious answer is to have fewer players.Unlike in my playing days, the game now involves 46 players rather than 30. If you have 46 people expending 100% energy in a limited space, there’s obviously a lot more energy being generated than there would be by 30 people. That is a major argument for reducing the number of players and I think having 13 players in a team makes a lot of sense. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

first_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Pike County Board of Education approved the school calendar for the year 2013-2014 at its Monday meeting.Dr. Mark Bazzell, superintendent of education, said the restricted starting date will be Aug. 19, 2013 but, because there is no restriction on the ending date, the board was able to restore several holidays.“We are feeling the stress of having to cram in days in the spring,” he said. “The most common suggestion was that Labor Day be taken out as a holiday and Good Friday added. That will give a break during the spring.” Book Nook to reopen Bazzell also brought the board up to date on efforts by Goshen High School parents and community members to build a softball field on the school campus.“Back in 2004, the girls’ softball team was practicing and playing in Troy,” he said. “So, the board entered into a lease agreement with the Goshen Lions Club and the Town of Goshen for the use of the Lion’s Club field.”Bazzell said the field and concession stand were in bad shape and the school board invested about $50,000 into getting the field back in shape and the concession stand usable. By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Latest Stories Email the author “Our lease expires in 2015 and we had hoped to be able to extend the lease,” he said. “But we support the efforts of the parents and the community to raise funds for a softball field on campus and, it might be possible for the board to kick in funds for the project.”However, Bazzell said the project is not a school board project and he wants to make sure that vendors, who do business with the board of education, know that this project will have no impact on their relationship with the board.The board gave its approval for the Pike County Schools to partner with the City of Brundidge to provide a summer school program at Pike County Elementary School.The summer school program will be from 8 a.m. until noon and the summer feeding program will be from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. until noon.

first_img[1] Marine geophysical data from the Antarctic continental shelf indicate the former presence of ice streams that drained through bathymetric troughs during the last glacial cycle. Streaming flow is recorded by elongate subglacial bedforms, formed in the upper part of an acoustically transparent sediment layer. Cores from the layer demonstrate that it is a weak and porous subglacial till (“soft till”). Shear within the soft till was concentrated in zones that were 0.1-0.9 m thick. The soft till is a “hybrid” till, formed by a combination of subglacial sediment deformation and lodgment. The base of the soft till is marked by a strong reflector which represents the top of a denser and stronger “stiff till.” The form of this reflector ranges from flat and continuous to deeply grooved and irregular, implying the operation of different mechanisms of sediment mobilization and incorporation into the soft till layer. The irregular form of the basal reflector is consistent with grooving, whereas the flat and continuous form is more consistent with sediment mobilization as a subglacial traction carpet related to changes in basal effective stress. Geophysical evidence for large-scale advection of the soft till, combined with evidence for deformation partitioning into relatively thin layers up to 0.9 m thick, indicates that localized shear zones integrated to transport significant volumes of sediment beneath Antarctic paleo-ice streams.last_img read more

first_imgGive George Bush credit. You might think the day he acknowledges environmental and climate change will be the day he can heat up one of those killer pretzels of his simply by the power of the sun’s rays. However, the earth’s not the only thing to have been feeling the heat – the environmental record of the former oil man has become an electoral issue. And, as with so many other issues, the Bush team has done a brilliant job of obfuscating the facts. Bush was recently in Florida’s Everglades to tout his “commitment to conserving Florida’s natural beauty.” His administration has backed an $8bn conservation project in the swing state that handed him the presidency. Though the photo-op was a curious one – Bush was actually shown cutting down trees – the Florida project is brilliant electoral politics and helps to distract from the fact that he approved the scrapping of a mandated clean-up of 161 mercury- polluted streams, rivers and lakes in Florida alone. Meanwhile, John Kerry has run a disastrous campaign, allowing the Republicans to brand him a flip-flopper on issues with which he should be pounding Bush. To the delight of the Bushies, Kerry denied owning an SUV only for reporters to point to his Audi Quattro which Kerry explained away by weakly saying that it belonged to his wife. Similarly, it seems incredible but Kerry’s war record – a major asset in this Khaki election – has also been successfully trashed. Republicans have questioned whether Kerry, still walking around with Vietnamese shrapnel lodged in his body, deserved his Purple Heart for bravery because he had not been sufficiently wounded. The sheer audacity of the Bush team needs little explanation; most went out of their way to avoid combat. It’s been an awful few months for Bush but he is still neck and neck with his opponent, who has allowed himself to be defined in the worst possible terms. The smearing of Kerry and his record is crass and dishonest but, by George, it’s working.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img read more
