The Craig Chalmers Column

first_img RESULTS AREN’T coming for Scotland but head coach Vern Cotter hasgot my backing. Even after four successive Six Nations defeats, I can see that things are moving forward.The New Zealander has brought a lot to the party. He plays his cards close to his chest but the players have massive respect for him, similar to the respect we had for Jim Telfer in my day. Scott Johnson (his predecessor) was more flamboyant and it was hard forplayers to read him.We could have beaten France, and should have beaten Wales and Italy. Expectations have been high and, until Italy, performances much improved. The former Scotland and Lions fly-half analyses his nation’s performance during the RBS Six Nations and calls for one major change Down and out? Chalmers says Scotland need to replace Greig Laidlaw as captain. (Photo: Inpho) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS We lack real leadership in the team, and I’d give the captaincy to a younger player. Greig Laidlaw, the current captain, isn’t the best player in his position. He knows the game well and kicks his goals, but he slows the ball down a lot. Speeding the game up with the ‘tap and go’, like Gary Armstrong used to do, doesn’t come naturally to him.To find out who Chalmers thinks should captain Scotland for the Rugby World Cup, you can read the rest of his exclusive column in the April edition of Rugby World magazine, which is on sale now.

Waikato have two carded in punch-up with Taranaki

first_imgWednesday Aug 18, 2010 Waikato have two carded in punch-up with Taranaki Waikato had all the momentum as they made a great comeback against Taranaki in the ITM Cup on Sunday, but controversial yellow cards for forwards Liam Messam and Romana Graham halted their progress as they went down 33-23 in the end.Taranaki escaped punishment for their part in a scuffle that looked like it was started by hooker Laurence Corlett. Corlett reacted to something which led to him striking out at Messam, who in turn retaliated, only to be joined by lock Graham for an old style scrap that is rare these days.Somehow, the assistant referees not only failed to name Corlett as the instigator, but also tried to dog-in the Waikato number eight, who was already sitting on the bench.Unfortunately for Waikato the two powerful forwards being sinbinned meant an end to their rousing comeback, but they did manage to show great courage as they didnt concede any points during that ten minute spell.The home side were 30-3 down at one stage but managed to get to 30-23 and have the momentum going forward. The fisticuffs ended all that, costing them dearly. The frustration for Waikato afterwards lay with the fact that Corlett wasnt pinged at all.The sight of two Waikato men letting loose on the solitary Taranaki hooker led to the inexperienced officials recommending cards for the Hamilton men only.Taranaki captain Craig Clarke said he wasnt aware of exactly what happened shortly before referee Nick Briant sent the pair from the park for swinging, and quite possibly landing, a flurry of punches.This shows yet again that when you retaliate, you’re usually going to end up drawing the short straw when it comes to the onfield decisions. It’s also possibly a decent case for allowing the TMO to take a look at foul play, a system that was actually trialled in the Currie Cup last season.

Comments are closed. • A plan to require recipients of unemployment benefit to sign up to individual back-to-work plans has provoked deadlock among the French employers’ organisation MEDEF and five main unions. The proposals, put forward by MEDEF, have won the agreement of two of the unions. But the CGC, the CGT and Force Ouvriäre have all refused to sign up to the proposals, complaining that they would impose unacceptable sanctions on job seekers who did not accept the plan drawn up for them. The disagreement has brought to an end negotiations aimed at establishing a new framework for the organisation of unemployment benefits after the current cross-industry agreement expires at the end of June.Rivals call for action on telecoms takeover• The European Commission is planning to block WorldCom’s $130bn takeover of rival US telecoms company Sprint. Officials have drafted a decision to veto the merger because they are concerned about the market power of the merged company. Rivals of the two have pressed the commission to be tough on the merger and some have called for the sale of WorldCom’s Internet arm Uunet. Commission officials have also been discussing the sale of Sprint’s long-distance telecoms network. The commission will now discuss the issue with competition authorities from each EU country. Joint bid looks set to win in Nabisco deal• The £16bn auction of Nabisco entered its final stage this week after the French food group Danone finalised its plans for a joint offer with Cadbury Schweppes. Second-round bids for the maker of Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers are due in on Wednesday. US analysts feared US tobacco group Philip Morris, which owns Kraft Foods, would not face competition for Nabisco because competitors were thought to face tax hurdles. But Danone and Cadbury have reportedly agreed on a structure for a joint bid, which they hope will avoid tax obstacles associated with splitting the company in two.last_img read more

Drop in demand leaves oil companies ‘grappling for storage space’

first_imgThe coronavirus pandemic’s impact on oil demand has led to storage costs jumping by almost 40% in the Asia Pacific region The impact of coronavirus continues to hit oil markets and reduce energy consumption (Credit: Flickr/Steven Straiton) Plunging global demand for oil has left companies “grappling for storage space”, says an industry analyst.This is just one of many challenges facing the industry as the impact of the coronavirus pandemic continues to crush world markets and cut energy consumption.The latest analysis by the International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts global oil demand will fall by a “staggering” 9.3 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2020 — marking a drop of about 9%.According to data and analytics firm GlobalData, overseas storage facilities have hiked transportation fees for some companies, while others are dealing with the relatively short shelf life of gasoline and jet fuel, and the limitations of storing light and heavy crude alongside one another.GlobalData Oil and gas analyst Haseeb Ahmed said: “North America is battling a severe shortage of storage capacity.“The US Energy Department is leasing spare Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) capacity to private companies.“But with US crude inventories surging, it may be only a matter of time before the country runs out of storage space.” Drop in oil demand leaves storage space challenges for companiesOil companies in the Asia Pacific region are feeling the effects of the drop in demand, as storage costs have increased by almost 40% as rivals fight for sites to store fuel, according to Ahmed.But despite the inflated prices, companies such as South Korea-based SK Energy and Indian firm Nayara Energy have taken on lease SPR spaces from their respective countries to store crude.Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is filling up its large spare storage capacity with domestic production.In the wake of demand destruction and a lack of storage space, the kingdom’s state-owned oil giant – Saudi Aramco – has offered up to a 90-day deferred payment option for its crude deliveries to European oil refiners.Saudi Arabia is filling up its large spare storage capacity with domestic production (Credit: Saudi Aramco)In Europe, maintenance activities at storage terminals are being delayed in Germany, Italy and France, while capacity expansions of terminals are likely to be put back due to lockdown restrictions limiting the number of workers available on sites.To store surplus crude volumes, tankers anchored in ports are also serving as floating storage points.But Ahmed believes the brighter side of this “chaotic situation” could be the likelihood that operators are thinking along the lines of “building enough storage spaces to tackle such unforeseen challenges”.“This may pave a way for increased investment in storage projects from private and foreign entities — particularly in nations that lack enough storage space,” he added.“While India is one such example, developing four additional SPRs, countries such as Japan and South Korea may follow, especially when it comes to building emergency reserves.”last_img read more

Praise for Bhalla’s arts trust fund order

first_imgDear Editor:I am a resident of Hoboken. I am an artist, art teacher, and president of hob’art cooperative gallery (Hoboken’s only nonprofit artists’ cooperative.) I am writing to commend our Mayor Ravi Bhalla for his newest executive order.The executive order requires that all future bond ordinances in Hoboken include an additional 1 percent. These funds will go directly into a Hoboken arts trust fund. For example, when Hoboken bonds for road construction or to purchase a park, however much those items cost, an additional 1 percent specifically allocated for the arts will be added to the bond ordinance.Last year, Hoboken bonded for approximately $20 million. Had this executive order been in effect last year, the city could have potentially generated $200,000 for the trust fund.This is, as the mayor himself said, a “game changer” for the arts in Hoboken. In the 40 years that I have lived in the beautiful city of Hoboken, our municipal government has never funded the arts. It is ironic because we artists who came here 40 and more years ago bought decaying properties, renovated them and began the process of making Hoboken one of the most desirable and lovely communities in which to live.As with most cities, we pioneering artists have been finding it more and more difficult to pay for the rising costs of housing and work space in our gentrifying community. Young and old artists, musicians, dancers and performers have been leaving Hoboken in large numbers. This new order from Mayor Bhalla may enable the city to create cultural events and venues that make it possible for the artists, musicians and performers to move back.I am grateful that the mayor understands the NEA statement “Art Works” because when creative thinkers live in a community business grows, economies become strong, and the quality of life of all citizens improves. Art districts attract a myriad of small businesses from restaurants to theaters. Small business generates income. Income generates revenue to fund parks, exhibition halls, dance and theater spaces, and concert halls. The economic wheel can then keep turning to make everyone’s lives better. Thank you, Mayor Bhalla!Sincerely,Elizabeth Cohen Ndoyelast_img read more
