The Rugby Championship heavily influenced the narrative in August and yet again it was the All Blacks who once again led from the front while Australia and the Springboks waned… Calling the shots: Beauden Barrett’s superlative form has seen him wrestle the 10 jersey from Aaron Cruden Beauden Barrett – the quadruple threat playerAfter Beauden Barrett’s performances in August it seems unfathomable that there was even a debate as to who would wear the ten shirt for the All Blacks. His displays in the first two tests against the Wallabies were simply awesome. A true example of a triple threat individual who can run, kick and pass – a skillset that all of the best outside halves have. But Barrett takes it one step further beyond the third dimension and into the fourth.Threat: All Black Beauden Barrett has a multi-faceted skillsetBarrett is one of the few outside halves who have the top end speed of a test wing – rumoured to be under 11 seconds over 100m which is rapid when you consider that Bryan Habana, in his prime, recorded 10.6. Whereas most test fly halves make the line break and then require a supporting runner to make the second line break to finish the try, Barrett can finish the whole thing on his own – often leaving the last defender as if they have made eye to eye contact with Medusa herself. Awesome Mr Barrett.Pumas and the new world orderWhilst Zebre and Treviso being dropped into an elite competition has proved largely damaging for both themselves and their respective league, the addition of the Pumas into The Rugby Championship (TRC) has been a rampant success. A team which once only had a scrum, a maul and a goal kicker is now playing the most attractive rugby outside of New Zealand. The predicted whipping boys of the TRC have now ripped the said whip from those at SANZAAR and are using it to hand out a few sound thrashings of their own.New world order: Argentina gave the Springboks two torrid games last monthThe Pumas were valiant in defeat against the Boks in Nelspruit and delivered a set of core numbers that would be the envy of any top five nation – whilst the try which they scored in the 24th minute would be the envy of even the All Blacks. All of which was rounded off with a win over the Boks in the second round where they made nearly twice as many line breaks as the Boks – 18 in total. This was their third victory in what is the hardest tournament in the world and rest assured it won’t be their last.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The cross kick is no longer a riskA decade ago the ‘cross kick’ was deemed a last resort in rugby union. A risky play from the cross pollination of union and league which occurred in the mid 1990’s. Well it is no longer a risk in union, it is a must. You only need look at the efficiency with which Beauden Barrett executes the option for New Zealand, Sanchez and Hernandez for Argentina and Colin Slade’s effort in Pau’s recent game against Toulon, to see just how necessary it is in modern rugby.No risk: Juan Martin Hernandez is a keen proponent of the cross kickTo cross the width of the field with the ball in hand requires a minimum of four passes, not to mention the handling and contact errors that can occur in between – the cross kick requires one precision kick and one precision catch to eliminate four to five defenders. And with the increasing height of modern wingers, the crosskick is likely to almost become the third set piece in rugby.Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick are still the benchmarkThere are many good second row combinations in world rugby. Maro Itoje and George Kruis, Alun-Wyn Jones and Luke Charteris to name but two. However, as August proved, Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick remain unrivalled. Whilst their lineout work, ruck clearing and defence are a given (they made 28 tackles between them in Bledisloe One, missing just a single hit) it is their ball handling that sets them apart from the rest – Retallick completed three more passes than even Israel Dagg in the First Test.Tag team: Brodie Retallick and Sam Whitelock form a hugely effective lock pairingThey may wear four and five on their back, but their hands and feet are that of a six and seven. Retallick’s ability to bounce the first tackle and offload through the central channels is hugely important in the All Black’s gameplan. Whilst Whitelock’s ankle high pickup and pass ‘through the back’ of two Wallaby defenders in the first Bledisloe test was the equal of Dynamo’s sleight of hand. Whitelock and Retallick remain on the throne, leaving the rest very much sitting on the bench.Wallabies hit rock bottom.Losing a three test tour to England could be considered a blip. A massive blip, but one that may have been an anomaly. To be absolutely annihilated by the All Blacks, at home, in Bledisloe One is quite another. We must of course take into consideration the injuries which blighted their backline – few teams could cope with losing Matt Giteau (ankle), Matt Toomua (neck/head) and Rob Horne (shoulder), but unless Michael Cheika had something weird up his sleeve, even weirder than a listening device, it’s doubtful that any of the above would have jumped in the lineout or added much weight to the maul and scrum.Shellshocked: The Wallabies have had a woeful summer, losing five games in a rowThe Wallaby lineout was so unstable that it seemed as though Stephen Moore must have posted the calls on Facebook the night before. The Wallabies only managed to make two line breaks compared to the All Blacks’ 22, largely due to the fact that Tevita Kuridrani had to get through an incredible defensive workload – completing 17 hits and missing none. The Wallabies were more competitive in Bledisloe Two, but nowhere near the standard required from one of the great test nations. The Wallabies are bottom of the table after two games, with a points difference of -54, and currently the famous Wallaby gold is starting to look like the stuff you can buy from a street vendor in Magaluf.

Previous articleDuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 11/9/16Next articleWith Election Day Over, Farm Groups Push for TPP Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter The National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (NDB) honored Steve Frischknecht and Donald Gurtner as the 2016 recipients of the Richard E. Lyng Award for their contributions and distinguished service to dairy promotion.Frischknecht, a dairy farmer from Manti, Utah, and Gurtner, a dairy farmer from Fremont, Ind., were recognized at the Joint NDB/National Milk Producers Federation/ United Dairy Industry Association (UDIA) Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tenn.The award is named for former U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Richard E. Lyng, who played a critical role in implementing policies that led to the establishment of the NDB more than 30 years ago. The Lyng Award honors leaders who have made a significant contribution to dairy promotion that benefits the entire industry.“Steve and Don are stellar examples of dairy farmer leadership,” said Zach Myers, North Carolina dairy farmer and chair of the NDB. Frischknecht was a leader in dairy promotion for more than 20 years, including several as secretary of UDIA. Gurtner has devoted 35-plus years to promoting dairy in Indiana, serving as a national director of UDIA for more than 20 years and as chair of American Dairy Association Indiana since 1985.“Steve’s work on both local and national promotion boards helped pave the road to creating partnerships and advancing the checkoff’s mission,” Myers said. “Within Utah, he worked tirelessly to ensure that dairy and agriculture were in the forefront, from serving on county and state fair boards to being an advocate for dairy with consumers and thought leaders.”Gurtner’s impact transformed dairy promotion in Indiana, helping guide the merger of three separate dairy promotion organizations to eliminate redundancies, save resources and to strengthen dairy’s voice. “Don has dedicated his time, knowledge and leadership to farmers for decades, making a real difference for farmers not just in Indiana, but throughout the country,” Myers added.As part of the Richard E. Lyng Award, the NDB will contribute $2,500 to Snow College (Ephraim, Utah) in Frischknecht’s name and $2,500 to Purdue University in Gurtner’s name.

Your government news is made possible with support from: Vaughn Golden is a freelance radio and print reporter covering politics around the southern tier and central New York. He authors the weekly “Capitol Watch” watchdog report on Ithaca’s representatives… More by Vaughn Golden “I understand the crushing burden that high property taxes can bring to New York residents, but I believe there are better ways to deal with this problem than a permanent tax cap, such as a state takeover of Medicaid or increased state aid to local school districts,” Lifton said in a statement to the Ithaca Voice last week. “For these reasons, I don’t support a permanent property tax cap, but I support an extension of the current tax cap without making it permanent.”Lifton joins the Assembly leadership in that stance. Despite the pressure, Cuomo has reaffirmed that he will not budge, leading to potentially heated negotiations as the state draws close to the April 1 deadline to approve its budget.A former high school teacher, Lifton was named to the legislature’s joint committee charged with overseeing the state’s education budget for the 2020 fiscal year. In a hearing last week she praised the proposed raises for school district funding especially in the areas of technical education and libraries, but called for more investment in capital funds for BOCES units.The Assembly also passed a bill that would effectively block the construction of a trash incinerator within the Seneca Army Depot complex in Romulus. The project drew intense backlash from Democrats and Republicans across the board. Lifton co-sponsored the legislation. State Senator Tom O’Mara (R-58th N.Y. Senate District)State Senator Tom O’Mara was named as an alternate for the join Senate-Assembly budget conference committee on transportation funding, but he was not called on to serve in the body’s hearing last week.O’Mara spoke out against a Democratic piece of legislation that’s been around Albany for the last few years which would strengthen labor regulations on farms and other agriculture-based businesses. The Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act would mandate that farm workers be compensated for overtime, be given a 24-hour period off per week and be allowed collective bargaining rights. O’Mara is not a fan.“The misguided and misrepresented Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act poses an extreme action at a time of already severe economic struggle for New York State farmers,” O’Mara wrote in a letter to the Democratic leadership last week. “Worse, the Act’s consequences would produce a nightmare of a ripple effect across local communities in every region of this state and profoundly diminish the future of high quality, local food production.”The state Senate also took action to bring young Bingo enthusiasts out of the back rooms and dark alleys where they have been playing, since those under the age of 18 have been legally barred from the game in the state. O’Mara voted, with all but one senator, to allow young Bingo fans to play the game freely… or at least with adult supervision.U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer & U.S. Senator Kirsten GillibrandSenator Gillibrand scored a small victory for the Finger Lakes region in the Senate last week. A piece of legislation authorizing a study that could lead to the designation of the region as a National Heritage Area was passed as part of the Natural Resource Management Act. If the study by the National Park Service is approved, it could open additional avenues for federal funding to support the area’s tourism.The Senate voted to disapprove of President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a southern border wall. Gillibrand and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer voted for the resolution (against the emergency) along with 59 other senators including 12 Republicans. The move led to President Trump’s first presidential veto, which is unlikely to be overridden by the House or Senate.Featured image: Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton answers questions at a meeting. (Ithaca Voice file photo) Vaughn Golden Tagged: barbara lifton, capitol watch, chuck schumer, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, kirsten gillibrand, politics, tom reed In the latest from Albany and Washington … Republican Rep. Tom Reed supported Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s calls to institute a permanent property tax cap on municipalities and school districts, but Democratic Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton isn’t siding with Cuomo. State Senator Tom O’Mara called out state Democrats’ proposed farm labor regulations and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand put the Finger Lakes on track to potentially see more federal money for local tourism.Rep. Tom Reed (23rd Congressional District)Last week, Rep. Tom Reed reaffirmed his support for permanently capping the amount New York state property taxes can be raised by municipalities and school districts each year. While the U.S. Representative does not have a vote in Albany, it’s a rare occasion where Reed is allied with Cuomo, who is pushing for the permanent cap to be included in this year’s state budget.“I’d like to open this week by doing something that’s a little unusual,” Reed said on a conference call with reporters last week. “I’d like to applaud Governor Cuomo for his recent commitment in black and white that he would not sign a budget in New York that does not include the property tax cap.”Reed did however buck Cuomo on his continued attacks against President Trump on the state and local tax (SALT) cap provision of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The SALT cap limits the amount of itemized deductions taxpayers can claim on their federal return for state and local taxes, capping it at $10,000. Cuomo has been railing that the provision targets richer states, like New York, claiming it’s caused a $2.6 billion shortfall in tax revenue in New York for this fiscal year.Rep. Tom Reed addresses the crowd in Enfield at a town hall. (Kelsey O’Connor/The Ithaca Voice)In Washington last week, Reed took to the dais in the House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Social Security where he presided as ranking member over a hearing regarding the program’s long-term funding. In his opening statement, Reed said Republicans want to keep Social Security solvent for the middle class without raising taxes. “Our principals in this mission are simple,” Reed said. “Long term economic growth by encouraging work, not penalizing it, equal treatment for public servants, acting now to defend those future generations’ benefits and protecting the most vulnerable people through focused reforms.”He questioned witnesses later in the hearing, emphasizing the idea that greater economic growth should lead to increased wages and therefore greater payouts for Social Security beneficiaries in retirement. His questioning garnered muted responses from the panel.Later in the week, Reed voted in favor of a symbolic resolution encouraging the Department of Justice to publicly release the full report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia Investigation. The resolution passed by a vote of 420-0 in the House, but was blocked from coming up for a vote in the Senate by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). It’s currently up to recently confirmed Attorney General William Barr how much, if any, of the report will be released.Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton (D-125th Assembly District)Assemblywoman Lifton struck a different tone than Reed when it comes to Cuomo’s proposal to make the property tax cap permanent.
The orbital-scale transition from the last interglacial toglacial climate corresponds to the progressive organization of global millennial-scale climate variability. Here, we investigate the structure and the global fingerprint of the first warming event occurring during the last glacial inception, the Greenland InterStadial 25 (GIS 25). Using centennial to decadal-resolution measurements of d18O and dD in the ice together with d15N, d18O2 and CH4 in the trapped air, we show that GIS 25 does not coincide with large environmental changes at lower latitudes. Such an equivocal fingerprint questions whether GIS 25 is simply a smaller amplitude version of later rapid events or whether it reflects a more regional northern hemisphere origin for the initiation of the millennialscale climatic variability. After this ambiguous first rapid event, the onset of the global millennial-scale variability – characteristic of the last glacial period- occurs as a short (300 years) event ending GIS 25.
