The Churchill Cup – A World Cup trial

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Hopefully in June, as there’s no other rugby going on, we can focus on that next level of players from all the countries and add the finishing touches before the World Cup.”This article appeared in the June 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK George Skivington celebrates defeating Canada to win the Churchill Cup in 2010In most years the Churchill Cup is little more than a development event, with little at stake, writes Paul Morgan. But in 2011 everything has changed with the competition becoming a trial for England’s squad to go to the World Cup.Usually played in North America, the Churchill Cup arrives in England this year with matches at Sixways, Kingsholm, Esher and Franklin’s Gardens – and Martin Johnson will be naming his initial 50-man squad for the World Cup during the tournament.So if players like Matt Stevens, Joe Simpson, Manu Tuilagi, George Skivington and Billy Twelvetrees are going to stake a claim for a place in the squad – which will go into camp in July and play Wales (twice) and Ireland in August – then here’s their chance.England have a great record in the competition. Since its inception in 2003, they’ve won five of the eight events with New Zealand Maori (2004 and 2006) and Ireland A (2009) taking the others.Neither the Maori nor Ireland have entered this time, leaving Stuart Lancaster’s team as clear favourites. The Saxons will have to beat USA and Tonga in their pool and most likely Canada in the final, as they look stronger than Russia or Italy A.Rob Andrew, the RFU’s operations director, says: “It’s great to get them (USA and Canada) over in England for what will be the second time we’ve hosted the Churchill Cup.center_img Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad?

Moroccan journalist Hajar Raissouni free at last

first_img RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance News Organisation News Receive email alerts June 8, 2021 Find out more October 17, 2019 Moroccan journalist Hajar Raissouni free at last NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes the release of Hajar Raissouni, a Moroccan journalist held since 30 August who was sentenced on 30 September to a year in prison for seeking an “illegal abortion” and for “sexual relations outside marriage.” The Moroccan justice ministry announced yesterday that Raissouni has been pardoned by King Mohammed VI.Raissouni has always insisted that the charges were “fabricated” and “politically motivated” and that they were above all prompted by her articles about persons detained in connection with the so-called “Hirak” protests in Morocco’s northern Rif region in 2016 and 2017.“We are relieved by Hajar Raissouni’s release and we hope that no more Moroccan journalists find their private lives being exploited for political ends,” said Souhaieb Khayati, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk.Morocco’s pro-government media outlets subjected Raissouni to an intense smear campaign focusing on her private life.Taoufik Bouachrine, a newspaper owner and editorialist who was arrested in February 2018, was sentenced in November 2018 to 12 years in prison on charges of human trafficking, abuse of power for sexual purposes, rape and attempted rape. Now prosecutors are trying to get his sentenced increased on appeal to 20 years in prison and a fine of 1 million dirhams (100,000 euros).Morocco is ranked 135th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

County Confirms Some Businesses Opening on Friday

first_img Although coronavirus cases and deaths continued to mount today, Los Angeles County officials confirmed that some “non- essential” retail businesses will be allowed to reopen Friday with curbside pickup only and other safety measures, as will trails and golf courses.The order does not apply to Pasadena. City officials are expected to release a plan this week.According to LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, businesses that will be allowed to reopen beginning Friday include florists, car dealers, toy stores, book stores, clothing retailers, sporting-goods stores and music shops.“The health order will only allow curbside pickup for retail, and in-store shopping will still be on hold for the time being,” Barger said.Car dealership showrooms will be allowed to reopen, but with strict physical-distancing and infection-control requirements,County trails will also reopen, but people using them will have to wear face coverings and adhere to physical distancing requirements. “We will have county staff that will be deployed to prevent crowding on our trails,” Barger said.Golf courses will also be allowed to open, but pro shops will remain closed, and golf course restaurants will be restricted to carry-out only.“These are all in alignment with the governor’s orders,” Barger said. “Los Angeles County cannot be more lenient on which stores can reopen than the state dictates. This list is less about what products are sold and more about the ability to maintain social distancing.”Specific reopening guidelines for various business sectors are expected to be posted on the county’s website before Friday so business owners can make proper arrangements, but in general they require measures to protect employees and customers.“As a reminder, all of the businesses that will be reopening will open in a much modified way that allows for optimum physical distancing and infection-control practices,” said County Health Director Barbara Ferrer.“Employers are also asked to do their part and please not open before all the requirements for safety are able to be met.”Ferrer outlined a series of stage in which businesses will be permitted to reopen in the future, nothing that facilities such as museums, cultural centers and galleries are among those expected to be allowed to open soon.Beaches, however, will remain closed, although Ferrer said a plan for reopening the coastline has been developed and could be implemented “in the very near future.”Similar reopening plans have already been approved by the state for some Orange County beaches, allowing for “active uses” but not sunbathing, but Barger said “what’s best for other counties may not be what’s best” in L.A. County.

GenapSys Names Jason Myers CEO

first_img Pinterest Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp TAGS  Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 4, 2021 REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 4, 2021– GenapSys Inc. (GenapSys), the company behind the world’s first highly accurate, affordable, and accessible gene sequencer, today announced it has named Jason Myers as its Chief Executive Officer, effective February 15, 2021. He will also join the GenapSys Board of Directors. Myers will succeed Dr. Hesaam Esfandyarpour, founder and CEO of GenapSys since 2010, who will remain as Chairman. As a strong leader in the biotech industry with a demonstrated track record of scaling businesses and bringing innovative technologies to market, Myers will help GenapSys continue to innovate and expand the reach of its industry-leading solutions. Myers currently serves as a member of the management team and a Director at Invitae, where he leads oncology strategy development. He joined Invitae in 2020 upon the acquisition of ArcherDX, a company he founded and led as President and Chief Executive Officer. Myers is trained as a biochemist with a wealth of experience in genomics and product development. Prior to founding ArcherDX, Myers led cross-functional platform and sequencing application development for Ion TorrentTM, which was acquired by Life Technologies in 2010. In addition, Myers discovered and successfully licensed a novel loss-of-function RNAI screening product to several leading life science tools companies. Myers received his Ph.D. in Molecular Pharmacology from Stanford University School of Medicine and a Bachelor of Science from Colorado State University. Dr. Esfandyarpour is the inventor of electronic DNA sequencing, a technology he developed during his Ph.D. work at Stanford University. He has dedicated the past decade to the development of this novel and higher-efficiency DNA sequencing technology, which at its core represents the convergence of multiple fields of science, engineering, chemistry, biology, and computing. Instead of the optical-based technologies traditionally used in the industry, the GenapSys system centers around a pure electronic chip, enabling a simple, elegant, accurate, and low-cost solution. “I’m thrilled to be joining GenapSys at this moment when the importance of innovative healthcare technology has never been clearer. Hesaam and the team have developed a pioneering sequencer that delivers highly accurate results at a fraction of the cost of other solutions. I’m excited to help further scale and commercialize this technology so that we can deliver the power of sequencing to new communities and industries,” said Myers. “I am pleased to welcome Jason to the GenapSys team and look forward to partnering with him in this next chapter of our growth. With world-class management and best-in-class technology, I’m confident we will continue to capture the huge opportunities ahead and revolutionize healthcare diagnostics, pharmaceutical discovery, personalized medicine, food testing, forensics, agriculture, biology, and more,” said Esfandyarpour. About GenapSys Inc. GenapSys is the company behind the world’s first highly accurate direct electronic sequencing technology. Its system leverages a proprietary electrical microfluidic sequencing chip with a scalable number of detectors, allowing for applications ranging from targeted sequencing of specific amplicons to genome-scale sequencing data collection.

Ousted MCH board member says Napper retiring but then backtracks

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Previous articleWest Texas educator set for Harvard programNext articleoat051519 Antonio Branco.jpg Digital AIM Web Support Facebook WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Facebook MCH photo logo In a landslide, challenger Wallace Dunn won the District 6 spot on the Ector County Hospital District Board beating out Mary Thompson, current president and longtime board member. Thompson left a voice mail for an OA reporter saying CEO Rick Napper was retiring but later backtracked and said she meant he would eventually retire. In unofficial final results, Dunn received 151 votes, or 68.95 percent; and Thompson got 68 votes, or 31.05 percent. The total number of voters in the joint hospital board -Odessa College election was 637 of 41,693, or 1.53 percent, according to the Ector County Elections Office. This was Dunn’s first time running for office. He is an oilfield salesman. “I’m excited,” Dunn said. “I was looking for something to do to give back to the community. This just was good timing.” He said he felt confident all along that he would win. “I tried to run a clean campaign. Anytime I ever talked about my opponent, I thanked her for her 30 years of service. I told her I’m a gentleman and I planned to act like one,” Dunn said. Dunn said the things he ran on were transparency, community, financial stability. “I’m excited that I can work towards that,” Dunn said. The past week has shown “we have a lot of issues up there,” he added. “If I could do one thing, I would improve the image in the community, and again, I’m excited. Now it’s time to get to work,” Dunn said. He added that win or lose, he made a lot of new friends. Results will be canvassed by the hospital board and OC board of trustees. Thompson said the voters have spoken. “And I am holding my head high. I’m proud of the 29 years that I have served on that board. I just don’t think anybody else is ever going to serve that long, but we’ve got the hospital turned around into a ship going in the right direction now,” Thompson said. A voice mail from her said: “I do hate it that (President and CEO Rick) Napper is going to retire because that’s going to leave a big void in the hospital. But the hospital will carry on and it’s a wonderful hospital and I can be nothing but proud of my 29 years of service,” she added. Thompson called CBS 7 and the OA later to say she meant he would probably going to retire in the future and that she misspoke. The race between Thompson and Dunn grew contentious when Thompson called for Dunn to step down after bringing up Dunn’s 2004 arrest record in Bexar County during a candidate forum. Thompson said at the time Dunn, who stressed transparency in his campaign, had not been very transparent with the public in disclosing his troubled past. Dunn, who said all of his charges had been dismissed, said at the time Thompson’s attack was out of desperation and “her heady vindictiveness is just a sign of her insecurity because she knows she’s going to lose this election.” Thompson, a retired nurse, had only drawn a few challengers for the District 6 seat during her tenure on the board with the most recent election prior to Saturday’s being in 2006. Thompson won the seat in 2006 by getting 19 more votes than her opponent at the time, Mark Darville, an Ector County Elections Office official previously told the Odessa American. Incumbent Odessa College Board of Trustees President Tommy Clark was reelected to his District 9 position. Clark is vice president of operations with AmeriPride. He faced challengers Laci Harris and Robert Brescia. Harris is unit director for the 6 Central and 6 West floors at Medical Center Hospital. Bresica was executive director of the University of Texas Permian Basin’s John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute. He is is currently a post doctoral student at Sul Ross State University in Alpine where he is enrolled in the superintendent certification course to obtain a license for kindergarten through 12th grade districts. The OC position is a six-year term and the hospital board is a four-year term. Clark has been on the board for six years and this gives him another six. Clark netted 314 votes, or 51.22 percent; Harris got 173 votes, or 28.22 percent; and Brescia received 126 votes, or 20.55 percent. “I do believe it was a very well run race by all three candidates for this position,” Clark said. He added that he appreciated the efforts of Harris and Brescia to step up and run. “… I think both of the are very fine people and winners in my book. They did a great job. I was real proud to stand with them today,” Clark said. He thanked everyone for their support and said he would try to continue with the good things going on at OC. Harris could not be reached for comment Saturday. Brescia offered congratulations to all the winners and said the races were all well conducted and well fought. “I think in the case of Odessa College, it’s a great school doing wonderful things. Any of us that would have won would have been up to the task and would have served well. Odessa College and Odessa City is the winner of this contest. I think both of them, Ms. Harris and Mr. Clark, are both great folks. I was wonderful to get to know them,” Brescia said. He said he may run for office again. In early voting, 270 people cast votes. Sixty-six people, or 69.47 percent of voters cast ballots for Dunn. Thompson got 29 votes, or 30.53 percent. Dunn, an oilfield salesman, had never run for office before. Clark got 148 votes, or 57.59 percent; Harris received 58 votes, or 22.57 percent; and Brescia got 51 votes, or 19.84 percent.center_img TAGS  Ousted MCH board member says Napper retiring but then backtracks WhatsApp Pinterest Local News Twitterlast_img read more
