France break Scottish hearts with late winning penalty at Murrayfield

first_imgMonday Mar 10, 2014 France break Scottish hearts with late winning penalty at Murrayfield France snatched victory from Scotland with a dramatic late win at Murrayfield on Saturday. A Jean-Marc Doussain penalty handed France a 19-17 victory, shortly after flyhalf Duncan Weir missed a chance to extend their lead and secure the win. Scotland led 14-9 at half-time through tries by Stuart Hogg and Tommy Seymour, and despite a Yoann Huget intercept try, the hosts looked on track for an upset victory.It was a decisive moment as had the Duncan Weir long pass gone to hand, Scotland had an overlap. Instead it was Huget that poached it and ran the length of the field for a well taken try.“It is a good sign how we got back into the game and this win is especially important as it shows we can win away from home,” said Huget post match.Weir, who kicked a 61st minute penalty to give Scotland the lead, then missed a shot at goal, giving France the lifeline they needed. A Doussain penalty was calmly slotted with less than two minutes left on the clock, and Scotland fans were denied a famous victory.France are thus still in contention for this year’s Championship, and face Ireland in Paris next week.“It will be a different game at home at the Stade de France in front of our crowd,” said French coach Philippe Saint-Andre.“We need to start well and accelerate during the 80 minutes but I am sure the guys can do this. I hope the Brian O’Driscoll party was in Dublin last Saturday and not this week at the Stade de France,” he added.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Six Nations 2014 Related Articles 377 WEEKS AGO Angelo Esposito’s big tackle on Jonny May… 377 WEEKS AGO Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge… 378 WEEKS AGO Ireland and O’Driscoll celebrate 2014 Six… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

USS Nevada Finishes First Post-Overhaul Patrol

first_img July 13, 2011 View post tag: finishes View post tag: News by topic Trident ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada (SSBN 733) and its Blue Crew returned to Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor July 3, capping Nevada’s first strategic deterrent patrol following a two-year refueling overhaul.“I am extremely proud of the crew in completing all strategic certifications in the last 12 months and taking the ship to sea for her first strategic patrol in nearly four years,” said Cmdr. Alan Schrader, Blue Crew’s commanding officer.“It is through the crew’s hard work that we completed all tasking,” Schrader continued. “Taking a ship out of refueling overhaul and back to the strategic front lines in the strict timeline required by U.S. Strategic Command was a great accomplishment for both crews and family members of Nevada. It is great to be back as a strategic asset.”Sailors’ families were on hand to greet Nevada as it arrived, with Amanda Voelker receiving the traditional first kiss from her husband, Lt. Nathan Voelker.During Nevada’s 56 days underway, a total of 56 Blue Crew Sailors earned the SSBN Deterrent Patrol Insignia, marking their first deterrent patrol. The crew honored the awardees on the pier with a pinning ceremony during which each was pinned by a representative of his leadership team.Nevada also qualified 10 Blue Crew Sailors – two officers and eight enlisted – as submariners, giving them the honor of wearing the traditional “dolphins.”“Sailors on their first submarine assignment spend a significant amount of time learning the complex systems onboard the submarine,” said Lt. Cmdr. J.W. Hale, Blue Crew’s executive officer. “Their final qualification as a submariner is a significant career achievement that each Sailor can be very proud of. Working with these motivated and intelligent Sailors is the best part of serving as their XO.”Nevada underwent an engineered refueling overhaul at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility from February 2008 to July 2010. The overhaul included a refueling of the ship’s reactor, extending Nevada’s service for 20 more years.After emerging from the shipyard, Nevada underwent several months of post-refueling overhaul certifications, capped by the successful test launch of a Trident II D5 missile during demonstration and shakedown operations off the coast of Southern California in March.“Our Sailors’ dedication and perseverance allowed us to successfully complete every challenge and milestone placed in front of us to get USS Nevada back on the front lines as a strategic asset,” said Command Master Chief(SS) and Chief of the Boat Matt Tresch. “Our Sailors’ sacrifice would not have been possible if not for the support of our families and friends. It has been a complete team effort from both Blue and Gold crews, our family support groups, and the entire Pacific northwest Navy team.”Nevada is one of eight Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines homeported at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, providing the survivable leg of the nation’s strategic deterrent forces.[mappress]Source: navy, July 13, 2011; View post tag: USS View post tag: Post-Overhaul Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Nevada Finishes First Post-Overhaul Patrol View post tag: Patrol View post tag: first View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy USS Nevada Finishes First Post-Overhaul Patrol Training & Education View post tag: Nevada Share this articlelast_img read more

The Transit of Venus

first_imgAstronomical occurrences have always held a particular fascination for humanity. One such example is the Transit of Venus, when the planet can be seen to move across the sun. In celebration of the first transit to occur in 122 years, which coincides with opening night, the play seeks to examine the scientific frenzy caused by the previous transit in 1874 as well as the way in which it captured the popular imagination. The play itself is an interesting piece of abstract theatre. It does not have a distinct plot but is created piecemeal from a variety of first hand accounts about the transit, from newspaper articles and scientific journals and concluding with a poem taken from an 1874 issue of Punch. The play shows us the whole gamut of emotions that accompanied the event, from the initial sense of opportunism and scientific rivalry to feelings of triumphalism, recrimination and acrimony afterwards. The production is especially skilled at the stylistic effects of contrasting these seemingly overwrought accounts with a bare, mechanical rendering of them on stage. In one scene, the actors carry out automaton- like movements accompanied by the steady beat of a metronome effectively bringing out the mechanical exactitude of the scientific endeavour. Another interesting scene has the cast repeating phrases from newspapers such as ‘fatal difficulty’, ‘twelve years of error’ in a canon effect, eventually descending into a monotonous cacophony of voices. As conceptual theatre goes, it is an intriguing and well thought out production.ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img read more
