Dragons v Connacht Preview – Cronin and Sidoli return, Lydiate out

first_img“It means he’s almost certainly out of the Connacht match now, and it’s our most important game of the season. They had him in there and though his neck wasn’t right they’ve messed around with it and made it worse when we distinctly said our players should not be tested this week.“Dan has gone down there with a couple of knocks [he’s also got shoulder and knee problems] but he’s been strength tested and come back unfit.“We have basically got shafted and it will have big implications because of Thursday’s match when we said we had to be looked after because we had a game earlier in the week than anyone else.“I’ve got e-mails which were sent about this and I’m fuming about it. Dan is probably our best player, yet Scarlets players went there on Monday and they weren’t tested.”A WRU spokesman denied the claims saying: “While both Dan and Toby were invited to the WRU national centre of excellence at the Vale of Glamorgan for the testing session, Dan was medically screened and declared unfit to take any part in the testing.“Toby completed one test from the five involved, but this was solely an anaerobic test lasting just 125 seconds which involved running for 450 metres.“There should be no suggestion that this test should in any way damage the preparations of a professional athlete so far out from his next match.“Fellow Dragons players Will Harries. Aled Brew and Luke Charteris were all also invited to the testing session and they each joined Dan in sitting out all of the tests.”DRAGONS TEAM FOR CONNACHT:W Harries, A Hughes, T Riley, A Smith, A Brew, J Tovey, J Evans; H Gustafson, T Willis (c), B Castle, A Jones, R Sidoli, L Evans, G Thomas, T Faletau.Replacements: S Jones, P Palmer, P Price, L Charteris, A Coombs, M Jones, M Petri, P Leach.

Dragons have won their last three games at Rodney Parade, whilst the last seven Irish sides to visit the venue have all lost.Connacht have lost their last eight encounters in all competitions since their 16-13 victory over Bayonne on 15 October. The Irishmen have won just once away from home in the Magners League since April 2008: 19-17 at Glasgow on 17 September 2010.The last five clashes between the two sides have all been won by the home team on the day. Connacht won 40-17 against Dragons in round one but have not achieved a season’s double over the Welshmen since 2007/08.Watch highlights of the Dragons v the Scarlets here The Connacht squad sees a number of positional changes and two personnel changes. Sean Cronin, back from an IRFU imposed break (under the Player Welfare Management Programme), replaces Adrian Flavin at hooker in the starting lineup. Mike McComish has recovered from the illness that ruled him out of last weekend’s clash against Leinster and he replaces Shane Conneely on the bench.The rest of the pack remains unchanged with Academy star Eoin McKeon retaining his place at number 8 following an impressive display last weekend. The reshuffled backine sees the adaptable Ian Keatley move to fullback with former New Zealand Youths Troy Nathan, who qualifies for Ireland through residency, shift to the wing. Nathan has 64 caps for Connacht and has shown his versatility having played in every position in the backline for the Province. Academy graduate Eoin Griffin moves to outside centre and he is joined on the wing by Fionn Carr, with Brian Tuohy providing cover from the bench.15 Ian Keatley LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: ConnachtNewport Gwent Dragons center_img Connacht team news: Dragons team newsThere are a handful of chances from the side which faced the Scarlets last weekend.

Canon Alinafe Kalemba, priest in charge of Chirimba Parish, was elected as bishop on Aug. 24, at St Paul’s Cathedral in Blantyre, Malawi.Tengatenga left the diocese to become dean of Dartmouth University’s Tucker Foundation in New Hampshire, but the appointment was later withdrawn because, the university said, his past comments about homosexuality “have compromised his ability to serve effectively.” Tengatenga said he will take legal action against the school but that he would not withdraw his resignation from South Malawi.In a statement, the acting provincial secretary of the Church of the Province of Central Africa, the Rt. Rev. William Mchombo said he was impressed with the “calm manner in which the elective assembly went about electing a bishop.”In a media interview, the bishop-elect said that he was “humbled to be entrusted with such a challenging responsibility” and was “ready to serve in that capacity.”Bishop Brighton Malasa, chairman of the Anglican Council in Malawi and Upper Shire, told the media that he was happy that the people had spoken through their votes.“He has been duly elected by the church faithful and I wish him well,” he said. “I am ready to work with him and offer my unreserved support to him.Kalemba, 46, is married with two children. He was ordained to priesthood in July 1994 and has a Master of Arts (Theological Research) degree from Durham University, UK and a Bachelor of Art (Theology) degree certificate from the University of Malawi.Besides working as a parish priest and training chaplain from the time of his ordination, Kalemba has also been involved in the formation of candidates for ordination training as lecturer and dean and later as principal of Leonard Kamungu Theological College in Malawi.— Episcopal News Service contributed to this report.

Growth Energy Expands “You’re No Dummy” Campaign

first_img On Monday, Growth Energy launched the second in a series of television ads as part of the “You’re No Dummy” campaign. The latest ad focuses on Big Oil’s attempt to repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).“This ad is part of Growth Energy’s ongoing campaign to help Americans understand how the oil industry is trying to stop the growth of clean, green renewable fuels to protect its own bottom line,” stated Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy. “Big Oil has made repeal of the RFS one of its top policy priorities and it is time the American people know that they are actively seeking to block the use of renewable fuels that are cleaner burning, less expensive and reduce our dependence on foreign oil – it’s time to put an end to Big Oil’s campaign of misinformation to protect their bottom line by trying to eliminate competition,” Buis concluded. SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter “In conjunction with the release of this latest television ad, Growth Energy is holding its annual Advocacy Conference this week to highlight the importance of the RFS and higher blends of renewable fuels for our nation,” Buis added.

Resolving the northern hemisphere source region for the long-distance dispersal event that gave rise to the South American endemic dung moss Tetraplodon fuegianus

first_imgPREMISE OF THE STUDY: American bipolar plant distributions characterize taxa at various taxonomic ranks but are most common in the bryophytes at infraspecific and infrageneric levels. A previous study on the bipolar disjunction in the dung moss genus Tetraplodon found that direct long-distance dispersal from North to South in the Miocene–Pleistocene accounted for the origin of the Southern American endemic Tetraplodon fuegianus, congruent with other molecular studies on bipolar bryophytes. The previous study, however, remained inconclusive regarding a specific northern hemisphere source region for the transequatorial dispersal event that gave rise to T. fuegianus. METHODS: To estimate spatial genetic structure and phylogeographic relationships within the bipolar lineage of Tetraplodon, which includes T. fuegianus, we analyzed thousands of restriction-site-associated DNA (RADseq) loci and single nucleotide polymorphisms using Bayesian individual assignment and maximum likelihood and coalescent model based phylogenetic approaches. KEY RESULTS: Northwestern North America is the most likely source of the recent ancestor to T. fuegianus. CONCLUSIONS: Tetraplodon fuegianus, which marks the southernmost populations in the bipolar lineage of Tetraplodon, arose following a single long-distance dispersal event involving a T. mnioides lineage that is now rare in the northern hemisphere and potentially restricted to the Pacific Northwest of North America. Furthermore, gene flow between sympatric lineages of Tetraplodon mnioides in the northern hemisphere is limited, possibly due to high rates of selfing or reproductive isolation.last_img read more
