Scotland go two from two as they beat the Flying Fijians

first_imgMonday Jun 18, 2012 Scotland go two from two as they beat the Flying Fijians Tim Visser scored twice on debut as Scotland beat Fiji 37-25 in Lautoka, Fiji on Saturday. They are now aiming for a tour grand slam as they face Samoa in a week’s time, a match that Visser believes they can win. Scotland are on a high after their famous win over an Australian side, and now this one in sunny Fiji. Their game against Samoa is expected to be their toughest of the tour however.“It had been great for our confidence to be able to beat the Wallabies in bad weather. Then to be able to win in this heat was even better. We are now in a position to make it a clean sweep, which is incredible,” said recently qualified Scotland wing Visser.“Samoa will be a brilliant experience and another massive challenge, especially when you consider it will be even hotter than Fiji. Three wins out of three on the tour would be a marvellous achievement — something really special.“The last time Scotland were in Fiji they took a hammering, so to earn this result against such a passionate bunch of lads was awesome.”The game was finely poised at one stage and Fiji looked as though they could come back and snatch it, but the second Visser try put things out of reach.Unfortunately the broadcast from Fiji wasn’t the best, so the quality of the footage isn’t great. One of the Fijian tries was also missed due to a break in transmission. Highlights are posted below anyway, and if you’d like to watch the full match, you can do so here.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Kevin Durant announces he’ll wear No. 7 with the Nets

first_img Written by Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAnthony Causi / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — When Kevin Durant takes the court as part of the Brooklyn Nets, he won’t be donning the No. 35 on his jersey — the number he’s worn his entire NBA career. Instead, he will have the No. 7 stitched on his jersey, the small forward announced Sunday night.Durant, 30, made the announcement in an Instagram post which featured a photo of a No. 7 Nets jersey in a locker room. He tagged Thirty Five Ventures in the post, which is Durant’s business venture with his manager.On Thirty Five Ventures’ Instagram page, Durant wrote on the number change:“35 took my family and me from Seat Pleasant, MD and showed us the world. 35 allowed me to meet people that I never would’ve had the chance to meet, experience things I would never have had the chance to experience, and achieve things that I never would have been able to achieve. 35 allowed me to go to the University of Texas to play basketball, 35 allowed me to achieve my dream of playing in the NBA in Seattle. 35 allowed me to play basketball in Oklahoma City and form bonds and friendships that will last a lifetime. Lastly, 35 allowed me to go to the Bay Area and win two championships and form brotherhoods that no time or distance will ever break. 35 was chosen in honor of someone very near and dear to me. I will always honor him and honor the number 35. But as I start this new chapter in my basketball life, the number I’ll be wearing on my back is the number 7 next time you see me on the floor. One time Brooklyn.”The Nets on Sunday officially announced the acquisition of Durant in a trade with the Golden State Warriors. Along with Durant, Brooklyn acquired a protected 2020 first round draft pick from the Warriors. Golden State, in return, received guards D’Angelo Russell and Shabazz Napier and forward Treveon Graham.While the Nets did not disclose further details on Durant’s deal, ESPN reports the contract is for four years and worth up to $164 million.The Warriors, with whom Durant played for the past three seasons and won two championships, have announced that they plan to retire Durant’s No. 35.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgMaking Sense by Michael ReaganWhy does California even bother to have a border?Why does the United States of America?In 2013 the governor of our one-party state, Jerry Brown, and the Democrats in Sacramento effectively turned California into a sanctuary state.They told Washington that if any of the illegal immigrants arrested here had not committed a serious crime they would not be turned over to federal immigration officials for deportation.Now the council of Santa Ana has voted to join more than 30 other California towns that have declared themselves sanctuary cities.Already L.A, San Francisco, San Diego and Oakland won’t cooperate with federal officials or spend any of their resources to look for people who are in the USA illegally.We’ll see how tough the politicians running these cities and places like Chicago are when the Trump administration starts cutting off their federal funding.Meanwhile, the state I love continues to be abused by the Progressive Gestapo (PG) in Sacramento that doesn’t care who gets hurts by their open-door immigration policies or their terrible regulations and nonstop tax hikes.The working-class Latinos who live here – the legal ones, the American citizens – and the working poor are the ones who’ll lose their jobs to the cheaper labor of illegal aliens.The state’s “Haves” – the Hollywood elites, Silicon Valley computer engineers and lifetime political hacks — are not going to lose their jobs to an illegal immigrant from Mexico.It’s going to be the “Have Nots” – the gardeners, day laborers and entry-level restaurant workers.They’ll be the ones who’ll be hurt by the incoming waves of illegal immigrants that California’s Progressive Gestapo greets with open arms and treats better than the state’s shrinking number of taxpayers.Illegal immigrants in California already get free health services and schools for their kids. They already can get a driver’s license. Now they’re talking about letting them vote.In California, there’s a whole industry built around supplying fake Social Security cards. You can buy one and get it in an hour. Then you have the paperwork you need to take someone’s job away from them.So watch out, America.California is where most of our worst ideas about government are incubated and put into practice.Unless Donald Trump’s get-tough policy on illegal immigration turns things around, the Progressive Gestapo might be coming to your state and town next – if it’s not already there.California is a 40-year-old train wreck and it’s only getting worse. Major corporations are moving their headquarters to other states. People who own homes and pay taxes are leaving, too.A friend of mine who had immigrated to America from communist Czechoslovakia recently gave up on California.The Golden State was looking more and more to him like the country he escaped from in 1986, so he sold his house and moved to Puerto Rico.Immigrants from around the planet used to come to America to work hard, get rich and become Americans. Now they come here – often illegally — and want Americans to assimilate to their cultures and give them free stuff.It’s getting so crazy in California, legal immigrants from Mexico are thinking of moving back.

New National Database Tells You the Quality of Your Drinking Water in Ocean City

first_imgWater conservation is a top priority for Ocean City High School Water Champions.(Photo courtesy Flickr) By Donald WittkowskiIt appears to be clean, but is the water coming out of your tap really as safe as it looks and tastes?Consumers now have a new tool to check the quality of their drinking water simply by going online and doing a little research.The research group Environmental Working Group compiled information from nearly 50,000 public water systems in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in its database at enter their zip code or the name of their local water utility in the database to find out whether any contaminants have been detected in tests by the water suppliers and reported to federal or state authorities.“It really is to serve as a consumer education tool,” David Andrews, EWG’s senior scientist, said in an interview Monday.Water utilities serving the Jersey Shore towns of Ocean City, Somers Point and Sea Isle City assured the public that their drinking water is of the highest quality.New Jersey American Water Co., which serves Ocean City and Somers Point, called its water “outstanding.”“New Jersey American Water meets or surpasses all EPA standards for safe drinking water for all service areas across the state,” company spokeswoman Denise Venuti Free said.Venuti Free noted New Jersey American Water maintains its own water quality reports that are available to the public at the company’s website at Reports can be found for each town by typing in the zip code.Sea Isle City, which has its own municipal water department, is “extremely proud of the water quality we offer to our residents and visitors,” city spokeswoman Katherine Custer said.“Sea Isle City’s water department works very hard to maintain very high standards for our water quality,” Custer added. “Our water is clean and tastes delicious.”Although the vast majority of water utilities nationwide are in compliance with federal regulations, their water still may contain contaminants in concentrations exceeding the levels that scientists say pose health risks, EWG said.“The disturbing truth is that, all too often, a glass of tap water also comes with a dose of industrial and agricultural contaminants that have been linked to cancer, brain and nervous system damage, or developmental defects,” EWG said in a press release.Andrews said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has not added any new chemicals to the list of regulated contaminants in 20 years. He called it a “logjam.”He explained that more than half of the contaminants detected in U.S. tap water had no regulatory limit at all, meaning they could legally be present at any concentration and that utilities don’t have to test for them or tell their customers about them.“There is a significant difference between the health guidelines and the legal limits,” Andrews said.High levels of lead contamination found in the water supply of Flint, Mich., in what is now a criminal case, have brought heightened national attention to the dangers of drinking water tainted with harmful chemicals.EWG researchers spent the last two years collecting data from state agencies and the EPA for drinking water tests conducted from 2010 to 2015 by 48,712 water utilities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. All told, the utilities tested for approximately 500 different contaminants and found 267, EWG said.Among the chemicals that were detected, 93 are linked to an increased risk of cancer, 78 are connected to damage to the brain and nervous system and 63 are associated with developmental harm to children or fetuses, according to EWG.“These are not numbers that we are pulling out of the air,” Andrews said.last_img read more

Zoo Welcomes Baby Cotton-Top Tamarin

first_imgZoo baby tamarin and the mother. (Photo courtesy Cape May County Parks and Zoo) Cape May County Zoo officials are happy to announce the birth of a Cotton-Top Tamarin, born on Aug. 3, to parents Cordelia and Tam-Tam.The baby is the first one born at the zoo in over 17 years, according to a county press release.Considered one of the smallest primates, from Columbia, the Cotton-Top Tamarin is easily recognized by the long, white sagittal crest extending from its forehead to its shoulders.Dr. Alex Ernst, associate veterinarian, reported the birth as the first “quarantine” birth at the zoo during the coronavirus pandemic. Gestation is usually five months and one to two babies are common.“Our Cotton-Top Tamarins are a Species Survival Plan (SSP) pair and every successful birth helps to stabilize the future for these critically endangered South American primates,” Ernst explained.The goal of the SSP is to cooperatively manage animal populations within AZA-accredited zoos to ensure the sustainability of a healthy and genetically diverse population while enhancing the conservation of this species in the wild.Freeholder E. Marie Hayes, liaison to the county parks and zoo, added, “It is always exciting to announce a new birth at the zoo. However, the birth of an SSP-protected tamarin is significant in the worldwide conservation effort.”She continued, “The fact that our zoo participates in this program is a source of pride for all of us. The zoo is AZA-accredited. That involves a rigorous program to meet the criteria of the American Zoological Association and only about 10 percent of the zoos and aquariums meet the standards to become accredited.”It is through the AZA that Cape May County can participate in the SSP.“We have several species at the zoo that are protected under the SSP,” Hayes said. “We have two remarkable veterinarians and dedicated zookeepers that make our zoo one of the best in the state. Our zoo and park staff do a great job to keep the grounds beautiful for the millions of visitors who have made the parks and zoo one of the top attractions in Cape May County.”Since 1976, Cotton-Top Tamarins have been given the highest level of protection and all international trade was banned.Currently, the species is at risk due to large-scale habitat destruction. The Cotton-Top Tamarin is classified as “critically endangered” and is one of the rarest primates in the world with an estimated 6,000 left in the wild, according to the press release.The Cotton-Top Tamarins are one of three Amazonian species of tamarin and are found in a small area of northwest Colombia. Their average weight is between 14 to 15 ounces and the average height is between 9 and 13 inches.Their average lifespan is 13.5 years in the wild and longer in captivity, with the oldest recorded tamarin living to 24 years in captivity.“The baby is strong and healthy and will be carried closely by both mom and dad for several weeks until it is strong enough to venture out on its own,” Hayes said.The gender has not been identified because the baby is held by the mother. They are out and about in their habitat and can be viewed by the public.Visitors will have to look closely at mom to see the baby because she will be holding on to it very tight, Ernst noted.The zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Masks or face coverings for visitors over two years old and social distancing are required.The zoo is free but donations are accepted.For more information visit read more
