Watch: 14-man France score sublime try against Ireland

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS And just like that, @FranceRugby have the first score of the game!Charles Ollivon runs in the try after some slick play from the French ensemble #GuinnessSixNations #IREvFRA pic.twitter.com/ShoWQnS6Iv— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 14, 2021How about Gael Fickou dealing with that bounce pass? It’s one of those things that always appears to catch defences off-guard, when the ball skips off the turf. And then France captain Charles Ollivon gallops away from the cover. But before all that there was a gallery of offloads from France’s stars. And look who was in the middle for all the action – you guessed it, scrum-half Antoine Dupont. The nine is on fire at the moment and the try was simply borne from beautiful stuff.A word for Fickou too. Before this score, he made a telling intervention.James Lowe thinks he has scored against France (Getty Images)With Ireland wing James Lowe getting the ball wide-out (and thumping through contact out there too) he thought he had squeezed in for a score. But Fickou had motored over in cover as a final tackle was put in and pushed Lowe’s legs towards touch.The wing’s foot grazed touch, according to the Television Match Official (TM) and it was ruled ‘no try.’ Shortly after, France got the try you can see above. The centre will be very pleased with his first-half performance at the Aviva Stadium. Despite having a player in the bin, France have a sensational score Charles Ollivon scores a try against Ireland (Inpho) Watch: 14-man France score sublime try against IrelandFrance have lit up these Six Nations with their try-scoring antics and they were at it again against Ireland. Despite having burly lock Bernard le Roux in the sin-bin for tripping Irish wing Keith Earls, they came out of the ten-minute period with 14 menand were actually seven points better off – and it was all due to this sublime score.

Indiana Wheat Harvest Underway

first_img Indiana Wheat Harvest Underway SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 6, 2014 Indiana Wheat Harvest UnderwayWhile most Hoosiers celebrated a holiday weekend, Indiana wheat farmers were busy harvesting this year’s crop.  The Indiana harvest is running behind schedule; but, according to Steve Gauck with Beck’s, the crop is in good shape, “Harvest has been slow to start with the late warm up this spring, so we are a little bit behind.” Despite a harsh winter and wet conditions yields have been good, “Yields have been very good; better than expected and, in most cases, better than average.” He added the quality of the wheat has also been good with fewer cases of vomitoxin than expected.The lateness of the wheat harvest is going to make double crop soybeans difficult in Northern Indiana, but Gauck says it will be a good year to get a second crop of soybeans in Southern Indiana, “I think we have a great opportunity for double crop soybeans this year. Not often to we get the chance to plant double crop soybeans into moist ground, but this year we have plenty of moisture in the soil and that will help the crop get up and off to a great start.” He said planting soybeans in early July will still be enough time to mature the crop before the first frost.According to last week’s USDA update the Indiana winter wheat was 90% mature in the South, 58% in Central counties, and 23% in the North. Winter wheat harvested was 64% complete in the South, only 9% in Central counties, and still 0% for the North region. The Indiana wheat crop was rated as 65% good to excellent and 33% fair to poor with only 2% rated as very poor.USDA crop briefs Monday afternoon will provide an update on wheat harvest progress in Southern Indiana.

Longtime Executive Director of the San Francisco Symphony is Named Executive Director of The Fuller Foundation

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * People Longtime Executive Director of the San Francisco Symphony is Named Executive Director of The Fuller Foundation From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, April 24, 2017 | 1:17 pm Brent Assink Photo courtesy Fuller Theological SeminaryThe Fuller Foundation and Fuller Seminary are pleased to announce that Brent Assink has been appointed executive director of The Fuller Foundation beginning May 1, 2017. With nearly four decades of nonprofit leadership experience, Assink is a consummate strategic leader recognized for his creative thinking, deep personal integrity, financial stewardship, passionate advocacy for the broad work of nonprofits, and considerable fundraising experience.“I have long admired the essential ministry of Fuller Seminary, and have become ever more aware of the great need that its faculty and students have met and will continue to meet throughout the world,” said Assink. “To have the opportunity to support this vital kingdom work through the leadership of the foundation and through connections with Fuller’s constituency is truly a gift from God that I humbly receive.”Assink comes to The Fuller Foundation having served 18 years as executive director of the San Francisco Symphony, recognized as one of the world’s most innovative and successful orchestras. A top leader in the classical music field, Assink’s long tenure at the San Francisco Symphony included a successful partnership with music director Michael Tilson Thomas; frequent orchestra tours of Asia, Europe, and the US; Grammy Award-winning recordings; and a year-long celebration of the orchestra’s centennial season in 2011–2012. Dedicated to making classical music accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, Assink led efforts to create the groundbreaking PBS television series “Keeping Score,” significantly expanded the reach of the institution’s acclaimed education programs, and created a new innovative performance venue, SoundBox, now the most coveted ticket in San Francisco. His strategic leadership responsibilities included managing a budget of nearly $75 million while working closely with the institution’s 80-member Board of Governors, 107 full-time musicians, and an administrative staff of 140. Under his leadership, the institution navigated financial challenges brought on by economic cycles and changing ticket-buying preferences. A hallmark of his tenure was the Symphony’s Second Century Campaign, which raised over $140 million in new endowment and program support, well exceeding its original goal of $100 million. Assink’s tenure at the San Francisco Symphony also included four years as general manager from 1990 to 1994.An organist and pianist, Assink holds dual bachelor degrees in business administration and music from Dordt College and a Master of Arts in musicology from the University of Minnesota. After completing his master’s degree, Assink began his career with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra in 1981. Following his stint as general manager at the San Francisco Symphony, he returned to The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra as president to lead the organization through a financial crisis. After helping turn The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s budget deficit around through artistic and educational initiatives, expanded marketing efforts, and the largest fundraising campaign in its history up to that point, Assink was invited to return to the San Francisco Symphony in 1999 as executive director, where he remained for the following 18 years.As executive director of The Fuller Foundation, Assink will work with seminary and foundation staff to deepen relationships with generous friends of the seminary and generate involvement and support for Fuller’s vision. Under his direction, the seminary and foundation will work collaboratively toward the goal of raising funds to grow the Fuller Endowment through fundraising, investment management, estate planning, and planned giving. The Fuller Endowment provides the seminary with needed funding for professorships, teaching, research, lectureships, scholarships, fellowships, and library resources to achieve its mission. Growing the endowment is an important step in securing the future viability of the seminary.Mark Labberton, president of Fuller Seminary since 2013, is delighted to welcome and work alongside Assink and the foundation with shared aspirations for the future. “Brent Assink brings a remarkable blend of strengths: experience and humility, intelligence and professionalism, vision and management, relationships and strategy, collaboration and innovation, character and faith. We are thrilled he is going to lead The Fuller Foundation and its unique partnership with Fuller Seminary.”“Brent Assink will be a great fundraiser and will grow the endowment for the benefit of Fuller Seminary,” said Roy Rogers, chairman of The Fuller Foundation’s Board of Directors. “Brent brings great fundraising and administrative skills developed as executive director of the San Francisco Symphony. Upon his retirement from the symphony, he had many different career opportunities, but I am glad he chose to work with the foundation and the seminary.”A lifelong Christian, Assink was born and raised on a 40-acre dairy farm near Lynden, Washington—a small community comprised primarily of Dutch immigrants. His faith began as part of family life, and he has sought God’s call in all areas of his life through church leadership roles, nonprofit board service, college life involvement, and throughout his professional career.Assink is a faculty member of the Orchestra Leadership Academy and serves on the board of the League of American Orchestras and the Russell/Engleman Rheumatology Research Center at the University of California San Francisco. He has published articles on church music, is a published composer, and has been recognized as a distinguished alumnus of Dordt College. He and his wife, Jan, an alumna of Dordt, have three adult children.About The Fuller FoundationSince 1987, The Fuller Foundation has helped raise millions of dollars in funding to advance Fuller Seminary’s mission. The foundation manages the Fuller Endowment and facilitates charitable giving for the seminary’s supporters. The Fuller Foundation’s comprehensive professional services, available to the seminary’s donors, include investment management, trust administration, estate planning, planned giving, donor-advised funds, and charitable giving education.The Fuller Foundation’s investment management services are provided by Fuller Investment Management Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Fuller Foundation.

Day after Christmas expected to be a travel nightmare, experts say

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — If you are traveling today, expect some travel headaches.According to Airlines for America, 2.9 million travelers are expected to fly on Dec. 26 and 27. That exceeds the 2.4 million who travel on U.S. airlines on a normal travel day.Thursday will also be the worst time to be on the road according to the American Automobile Association. AAA projects that trips will take twice as long as normal in major U.S. cities.An estimated 104 million holiday travelers are expected to drive to and from their holiday destinations from Saturday, Dec. 21 through Wednesday, Jan 1. That’s the highest number on record.“With kids out of school and many Americans taking extended time off for the holidays, drivers will experience only incremental delays throughout the week. Although congestion will be lighter than normal, knowing when and where major delays will likely happen will help save time and reduce stress this holiday season,” said transportation analyst Trevor Reed in a post on the website of INRIX, a location-based data and analytics firm.According to INRIX, here are the worst days to travel this holiday season and the peak congestion period in major U.S. cities:Atlanta, worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period: 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.Boston, worst travel day: Dec. 27, peak congestion period: 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.Chicago, worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period 4:45 – 6:45 p.m.Detroit, worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period: 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.Houston, worst travel day: Dec. 27, peak congestion period: 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.Los Angeles, worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period: 4:25 – 6:25 p.m.New York, worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period: 4:15 – 6:15 p.m.San Francisco, worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period: 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.Seattle, worst travel day: Dec. 27, peak congestion period: 4:15 – 6:15 p.m.Washington, D.C., worst travel day: Dec. 26, peak congestion period: 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
