Wallabies bounce back with strong second half vs the Springboks

first_imgSunday Sep 9, 2012 Wallabies bounce back with strong second half vs the Springboks The Wallabies got their Rugby Championship campaign back on track with a 26-19 win over the Springboks in Perth on Saturday. Twenty points in the second half marked a much improved performance, easing the pressure on coach Robbie Deans. South Africa led 13-6 at the break and looked to be playing the better rugby. Berrick Barnes kept chipping away at the scoreline with the boot though, and ended with six-from-six kicks at goal, adding to the second half tries by Scott Higginbotham and Ben Alexander.Bryan Habana scored for the Boks in the first half, but the Wallabies got their tails up in the second and with Alexander’s 68th minute converted try, the game seemed out of reach for the visitors.“I don’t think that we can suddenly expect to be the greatest team in the world and just click and play fantastic rugby. We need to learn from the experiences, we need to grow as a team and that takes some time,” said Jean de Villiers. “We want to be winning every single game that we play and those pressures from the media, from the fans, we feel them at times. But we believe that we are on the right track.. that we played much better rugby today and hopefully we can keep on improving when we play next week as well.“It is a young team but it is Test match rugby and you don’t have a lot of time to grow at this level. We need to quickly rectify those mistakes and hopefully get a better result next week,” he said.Both sides have injury concerns, with Wallaby halfback Will Genia out for up to six months after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. “I took the high ball, it twisted and I heard a few cracks,” Genia said.Springbok prop Jannie du Plessis has a hamstring concern, and Habana has a problem with his ankle. Both are in doubt for their upcoming match against New Zealand. 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.

Asia Pacific Virtual Clinical Trials Market (2020 to 2026) – by Study Type, Indication…

first_img Facebook DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The “Asia Pacific Virtual Clinical Trials Market By Study Type, By Indication, By Country, Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2020 – 2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The Asia Pacific Virtual Clinical Trials Market is expected to witness market growth of 7.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2026). The growing rate of neurological diseases like tumors, depression, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s combined with the increasing geriatric population are components anticipated to boost the growth of the virtual clinical trial market over the forecast period. Growing clinical trials to find reliable and effective solutions to cure or decline and prevent the spread of neurological disorders and age-related diseases are components that will boost the growth of the virtual clinical trials market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the instance of tropical and infectious diseases that need new medicines and drugs in numerous countries is a component anticipated to boost the growth of the virtual clinical trial market during the forecast period. Moreover, the modernization of clinical trials to improve productivity and collect information from many sources is a component anticipated to propel the growth of the clinical trial market in the next few years. The oncology segment is expected to be the lead market during the forecast period. This is credited to the growing instances of cancer on a worldwide scale and the growing number of oncology clinical trials. Patients of cancer are the most unprotected during the outbreak of COVID-19. Examiners and sponsors supervising oncology clinical trials have rapidly included remote and virtual trials to maintain the safety of patients and keep the trails going forward. Also, researchers studying cancer confronting major challenges in patient recruitment. Till June 2019, around 14,000 oncology trials were recruited actively with a participation rate of 3% to 8% of possible participants, with a slight number in minority and geriatric populations. Less rate of enrollment presents risks to the effectiveness of particular clinical studies. It may hinder the advancement in treatment and related advantages to results. Therefore, the low rate of recruitment and the requirement for a different population for oncology clinical researches are expected to fuel the acceptance of virtual clinical trials.

The polarization of escaping terrestrial continuum radiation

first_imgPlasma wave measurements from the DE 1 (Dynamics Explorer 1) spacecraft are used to determine the polarization of an escaping terrestrial continuum radiation event that occurred on March 2, 1982. The source of the radiation was determined by direction finding to be located near the magnetic equator on the nightside of the Earth at a radial distance of about 2.8‐3.5 RE. The radiation was emitted in two meridional beams, one north and the other south of the magnetic equator. Polarization measurements using the two orthogonal electric antennas on DE 1 show that the radiation is right‐hand polarized with respect to an outward directed E plane normal in the northern hemisphere and left‐hand polarized in the southern hemisphere. Comparisons with the local magnetic field show that both the northern and southern hemisphere beams are propagating in the L‐O mode at the spacecraft. The mode of propagation has also been confirmed using measurements of the E plane normal angle and ellipse ratio. Because the angle between the magnetic field and the E plane normal rotates through perpendicular as the radiation propagated from the source to the spacecraft, mode coupling effects must be evaluated when considering the mode of propagation in the source. Estimates of the spatial gradients over the ∼ 1‐RE distance between the source and the spacecraft indicate that the radiation has not reached the region of limiting polarization. Therefore the mode of propagation must be the same at the source and at the spacecraft: i.e., the L‐O mode. These observations support the linear conversion model of Jones in which the radiation is produced by coupling from intense upper hybrid resonance emissions near the plasmapause. This conversion mechanism predicts that continuum radiation generated in the vicinity of the plasmapause should be emitted primarily in the L‐O mode. Remote‐sensing analyses based on Jones’ model yield source locations in agreement with those derived by the direction‐finding method.last_img read more

Buy a coffee, a pastry… a house?

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Buy a coffee, a pastry… a house? previous nextAgencies & PeopleBuy a coffee, a pastry… a house?Hertford coffee drinkers could find they go home with a very sweet bonus!The Negotiator19th July 201601,419 Views There is a realisation that estate agency needs to modernise to compete with purely online agencies, many of whom are already going ‘hybrid’ – but, say traditional agents, how do you do it? Innovation – that’s how.One lively agency is taking a softer route to modernising and attracting potential new clients. Gomovehome has just launched in Hertford. Its parent company is Go Holdings, property developers, architects and planning experts; who wanted to add a quality agency offering under the GO brand.Edward Casson, Managing Director, said, “We have invested in a very nice shop unit in Hertford, to open what we believe to be the UK’s first Coffee Shop Estate Agency. The unit has been completely stripped out (it was a colourmax until April). We have built a coffee bar, which we have employed three baristas to run.“We have built an estate agent bar too (complete with three estate agents) in the shop and there is a further part to the shop where you will find an office. There will be a coffee bar menu like any other coffee shop and next to our estate agency bar, you’ll find a menu (to comply with legislation) with the fees for our estate agent services in the same style as the coffee shop menu.“On top of all of this, we have a large touch screen going in this week in one of the large front windows and have also built a virtual reality room in our back office where we will be showing properties we are marketing for sale and rent, virtually through a headset.The shop opens at 7am in the morning, until 7pm in the evening Monday to Friday. 8am – 5pm Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sunday.www.gomovehome.co.ukGomovehome Hertford Go Holdings GO Coffee Shop Estate Agency July 19, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Ki-moon in Oxford

first_imgBan Ki-moon became the fourth Secretary-General of the United Nations to give the annual Oxford University Cyril Foster lecture when he spoke at Examination schools last Wednesday.He spoke for an hour on the topic of “Human Protection and the 21st Century United Nations” and then answered questions, having flown in to Britain from the African Union summit in Addis Ababa earlier that morning.He conceded that often “our words are ahead of our deeds” when it came to human protection, but claimed that “momentum is on our side”.There was a huge demand for seats for the event. By 5pm, and hour before the talk was due to start, a queue already stretched up the High Street past University College. There was an overflow room with a video link, yet even so, by around 5.30pm University officials had to begin turning people away. Morgan Norris-Grey, a first year PPE student, was one of those who couldn’t get in. “It’s disappointing but understandable,” he said.Norris-Grey added that he wasn’t surprised that the Examination Schools weren’t large enough to hold everyone. “He’s a fairly important figure so I suppose people came from quite a distance to see him.”Professor Anne Deighton, the Chair of the Cyril Foster Committee, expressed her sorrow that some were disappointed, saying it was “a great shame that we could not accommodate everyone.”Towards the end of the lecture, chants from outside could be heard within the chamber. The protestors were acting out of solidarity with the people of Egypt. They denied that they were opposing Ban’s visit, and stated that they in fact wanted to speak to him. Roland Singer-Kingsmith, a fourth year Pembroke student protestor, said, “Although an audience with or a statement from him might have been ambitious, I’m glad that we were heard in the exam schools at the end of the talk. “It is important that our leaders continue to hear our demands.” Inside the Examination Schools, Ban in fact made explicit reference to the rebellion in Egypt, and said that violence against peaceful protestors were “unacceptable”, as he urged “restraint on all sides”. This echoed what he had said earlier on in the day when he met the Prime Minister, David Cameron, who condemned the violence in Egypt as “despicable”.Professor Deighton also added “These protests were not about the UN itself, but were urging our leaders to effective responses.” Ban also talked about the UN’s newest agency, UN Women, speaking of its important role in “the empowerment of women as a crucial protection tool”. This comes ahead of a day of lobbying planned for Wednesday 16th February at Westminster, in order to ensure proper funding from the UK government.last_img read more

Oxford student launches app to help social distancing

first_imgAn Oxford doctoral student has co-designed an app to help users practise social distancing by locating crowded areas in their neighbourhood, which can then be avoided.  The app is available for free on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.  As a GDPR compliant app, it does not collect users’ personal information and adheres to data privacy protection standards. The information provided is collected on an opt-in basis, using only the most relevant results. The enterprise works closely with Adapt to ensure that data protection standards are met. Launched on 20th April, the app was developed by Lanterne, a UK-based social enterprise co-founded by Sebastian Müller, Yohan Iddawela, and Alex Barnes, a doctoral student at Oxford.  Image courtesy of Lanterne Ltd. The highest number of users are based in Germany and Spain, and they aim to reach 100,000 weekly users around the world within the next three months. The app, Crowdless, uses real-time data, both crowdsourced and taken from existing sources such as Google Maps, to provide information on how busy they are. It aims to encourage safe social distancing by advising the public on when to visit supermarkets and other public places. All three specialise in conflict technology, and the app had originally been conceived as a way of helping those living in conflict zones avoid danger, but the COVID-19 pandemic led them to shift their focus towards encouraging the public to safely follow government regulations.  Alex Barnes said: “Our plans to roll out our core product — an app to help people navigate safely in conflict areas — were heavily disrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak. We were keen to see what we could do to help in the current circumstances, and we came up with Crowdless. We think it will be extremely useful for people who need to travel to shops and grocery stores but are trying to do social distancing effectively to protect themselves and the wider population.” The app was developed with the support of Oxford Foundry, an organisation set up in 2017 with the aim of supporting Oxford students and alumni in their entrepreneurial endeavours. Last year, Lanterne won the best post-graduate idea award at the Foundry’s All-Innovate competition, and in March of this year the enterprise was presented at the Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum.  Lanterne has been featured on the Foundry’s website as one of 13 ventures who are actively responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of whom are being supported as part of the Foundry’s OXFO COVID-19 Action Plan. last_img read more
