Yet again the Tigers went back on top with a solo home run in the fifth. After a scoreless sixth, a solo home run from Hale tied the game for the third time at 5-5. Tags: BYU Cougars Baseball/WCC With two outs and two on, Pacific moved ahead via a single up the middle to take the 6-5 lead. But the Valdez two-RBI double kept the Cougars alive, eventually leading to the Peterson grand slam in the 10th to win. Danny Gelalich was hit by a pitch, Casey Jacobsen reached on an error and Brian Hsu was intentionally walked to load the bases in the 10th for BYU with one out. Peterson, who entered the game in the bottom of the ninth at second base, stepped up to the plate and blasted a no-doubt home run to left to give BYU the 11-7 lead and eventually the victory. The Cougars (27-10, 11-5) trailed Pacific (21-20, 8-11) four separate times throughout the game, including deficits of 3-0, 4-3, 5-4 and 6-5, but fought back each time. BYU finally took its first lead in the top of the ninth with two outs when Abraham Valdez hit a pinch-hit, two-RBI double down the left line.

Galilee Energy to begin initial drilling program at Kumbarilla Project (Credit: Galilee Energy.) Australian oil and gas explorer Galilee Energy has secured Savanna Rig 406 to drill three exploration coreholes at the Kumbarilla project, in April 2020.The Kumbarilla project is located in ATP 2043, a 384km2 exploration drilling prospect, owned and operated by the company, in the Surat and Bowen Basins.Kumbarilla is said to have dual prospectivity within the Walloon Subgroup coal seam gas (CSG) fairway and the oil and gas prone eastern flank of the Taroom Trough.Galilee managing director Peter Lansom said: “Kumbarilla is a key project in the company’s portfolio and I’m pleased to have secured Savanna Rig 406 to perform the initial exploration drilling.“Kumbarilla possesses both high-quality coal seam gas prospectivity in the Walloons and outstanding strategic value due to its proximity to market. The fast-tracking of this drilling programme by more than a year also provides Galilee with an excellent opportunity to realise our strategy of expediting commercial gas reserves to the east coast.”Kumbarilla drilling programme will determine resource volume and potential for productionGalilee said that the three exploration wells planned to be drilled at the Kumbarilla project, are part of the initial exploration programme.The drilling programme is intended to capture a full suite of coal and subsurface properties of the Walloon Subgroup, to determine the coal seam gas prospectivity in the area, for future reserves and production.The company said that all three wells would be positioned within the interpreted coal seam gas sweetspot and be fully cored across the 300m thick, coal-bearing section of the Walloons.The testing program will be conducted to determine the resource volume and potential for commercial production, and the drilling programme is expected to be completed within 3 to 4 weeks.In addition, the company intends to use the results of the initial drilling to define further exploration drilling across the Kumbarilla and carry out a production pilot for maturing the certified 2C resources to reserves status of the project.Furthermore, Galilee is planning to drill a vertical monitoring well at the Glenaras multi-lateral pilot, as an extension to the drilling programme using Savanna Rig 406, before or after drilling Kumbarilla wells. Galilee’s drilling program is aimed at determining prospectivity of the Walloons coal seam gas potential for future reserves and commercial production

August 10, 2017 Back to overview,Home naval-today Australia commemorates loss of HMAS Canberra Authorities Share this article View post tag: WWII The Royal Australian Navy on August 9 marked the 75th anniversary of the loss of HMAS Canberra (I) during the World War II Guadalcanal Campaign.The commemorative service took place over her final resting place in waters off the Solomon Islands.As part of a series of commemorations for the battles at Guadalcanal, Navy personnel from HMAS Success, along with a detachment from the current HMAS Canberra, paid their respects at sea, laying wreaths over the wreck in memory of the lives lost on both sides of the Battle of Savo Island.Commander Australian Fleet, Rear Admiral Stuart Mayer, said the outcome of the war in the Pacific was dictated as much by the efforts to command the sea as the legendary land campaigns of Kokoda and Guadalcanal.“The battle fields at sea can too easily be forgotten when there is no monument that we can we can look at and touch and feel, but our sea battles have been just as decisive and just as bloody as those on land,” Rear Admiral Mayer said.“There are 32 allied ships from the US, Australia and New Zealand that fought in the four major battles off the cost of Guadalcanal; a testament to the courage and endurance of the sailors and their commitment to win the sea fight and turn the tide in the Pacific.”In 1942, a combined United States and Australian force provided protection to transports and troops ashore during the landings at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. The campaign to stop the Japanese advance into the South West Pacific was vital to protect the sea lines of communication between Australia, New Zealand and the United States.In the early hours of 9 August, the Guadalcanal campaign culminated in the Battle of Savo Island. The Japanese inflicted great damage to the Allied fleet, but quickly withdrew to avoid daylight counter-attacks, missing the opportunity to destroy the landing forces.Canberra was badly damaged to the point she needed to be abandoned and sunk. While the Battle of Savo Island delayed the liberation of Guadalcanal by several months, the Allies ultimately achieved their objective; prevented the Japanese from capturing a base in the South West Pacific.Eighty-four men lost their lives in the attack on Canberra and a further 10 died of their wounds. HMAS Canberra(I) remains the largest Australian warship ever lost in battle. View post tag: Royal Australian Navy Australia commemorates loss of HMAS Canberra View post tag: HMAS Canberra (I)
St Anne’s football teamhas been banned from holding any team socials after an incident involving twomembers of the team and the College’s deputy dean. On Friday 28 October,several members of the football team returned to the College after their termlysocial and one member of the group argued with the Deputy Dean, Susan James,while another member of the team was verbally abusive towards her. The team hadbeen at an Indian restaurant and did not all return to College together.Inan email to the members of the football team the dean of St Anne’s, ProfessorPeter Ireland, said that he was “appalled at the behaviour of two members ofthe club”, and that he had also “seriously considered banning the football teamfrom representing college. If there are any further complaints about thebehaviour of the football team I will discuss this option with the Principal.”Football team socials have been banned for events organised both on and off theSt Anne’s College site until the further notice. Professor Ireland added inhis email, “The individual who has argued with the Deputy Dean has had thedecency to step forward. The individual who verbally abused the Dean has notdone so… I will consider lifting the ban if the latter identifies himself.”RichardCurran, the Captain of the football team, said, “St Anne’s football club deeplyregrets the incident and has cooperated as fully as possible with the decanalstaff to reach a satisfactory conclusion.” He added, “The club feels that anypunishments should remain between the decanal staff and and the individualsinvolved.”ProfessorIreland told Cherwell that an incident had taken place “where a number ofstudents had conducted themselves in a manner that was in violation of Collegeregulations. Those involved have been punished. The College will not tolerateabusive behaviour.”Sofar the St Anne’s football club’s three teams are still competing in theUniversity’s JCR leagues. Curran added, “It would be pointless for me tospeculate whether further action will occur.”ARCHIVE: 5th week MT 2005
The website trashing.me, established this term to provide trashing supplies for Oxford students, has responded to criticism from the University and colleges.The University discourages the practice of trashing and many colleges have threatened fines and other sanctions for students caught engaged in the activity.A spokesperson for the University told Cherwell, “We urge students to celebrate responsibly and to show consideration for local residents and other students still taking exams. In addition, this year, for the first time, we are working with the Oxford Food Bank to collect any foodstuffs brought to the examinations for misuse, for distribution to people in need in the local area.”A member of the trashing.me team said, “Friends come together to see each other when they have finished exams, and this is a unique thing about Oxford which makes it particularly special: I do not know of any other universities where people come to see their friends when they finish their exams and help them relax and forget about anything that might have happened in the exam hall.“Trashing marks the end of your degree, and the beginning of summer and real life – and as such, is a symbolic and integral part of Oxford life. I understand that throwing food is a common complaint that is made about trashing but would point towards other festivals and events such as Tomatina where the tomatoes paint the street.“Nevertheless, we have deliberately not providedany foodstuffs but only party items.”
The Rhodes Scholarship will be made available to candidates from anywhere in the world, the Rhodes Trust has announced.Rhodes Scholarships are currently only available to applicants from a list of more than 60 specified countries.Recognised as one of the oldest and most prestigious international graduate awards, the majority of scholarships are reserved for residents of just three countries: the US, South Africa, and Canada.From April 2018, for the first time in the history of the 115-year-old programme, applicants from the rest of the world will be able to apply for the scholarship.The first two successful Global Rhodes Scholars will arrive in Oxford in October 2019.In a statement, the Rhodes Trust said: “Opening up the Scholarship programme to powerful minds from all around the world demonstrates the Rhodes Trust’s commitment to be a truly global organisation that re ects the world’s diversity.“[The expansion] marks a historic moment for the Rhodes Trust, and further strengthens the reach of the Scholarship around the world.”The expansion of the programme will be seen as a move to modernise the Rhodes Trust, and move it away from the controversial legacy of its founder, the imperialist Cecil Rhodes.The CEO of the Rhodes Trust, Charles Conn, emphasised the increasing global diversity of the scheme, while also recognising that the programme would mean that for the first time in its history, the Rhodes Scholarship would be available to students from the UK.Conn said: “As an organisation based in Oxford, we are very excited to be able to now offer the opportunity to British students to join the Rhodes community for the first time since the Scholarship programme was launched in 1903. Students from regions such as Latin America and elsewhere who did not previously have access to a route to a Rhodes Scholarship can now also join our international network.”The University reacted positively to the introduction of the new scholarships.A spokesperson told Cherwell: “The Rhodes Scholarships have been important to the University of Oxford since they started in 1903. They have led to many international postgraduate students being able to study here, and we are delighted that the new Global Scholarships allow for their reach to be even greater in terms of where Scholars can come from around the world.”Previous notable holders of the historic award include the former US President Bill Clinton, current Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and feminist author Naomi Wolf.
Overall Employment Rate For Recent Law School Graduates ImprovedIL for www.theindianalawyer.comThe overall employment rate for recent law school graduates improved slightly in 2016 despite a drop in the number of jobs available and overall class size, according to a new report.In its “Employment for the Class of 2016 – Selected Findings” report released Wednesday, the National Association for Law Placement found that 87.5 percent of Class of 2016 law school graduates were employed 10 months after graduation. That’s a slight improvement over the Class of 2015, which had an 86.7 percent employment rate at the same time last year.However, only 31,354 Class of 2016 graduates found jobs in their first 10 months out of law school, down roughly 2,000 jobs from the previous year. The number of jobs secured decreased in every sector except for the largest law firms with more than 500 lawyers, which claimed roughly a quarter of all law firm jobs in 2016.“The employment rate has risen because the falloff in the size of the graduating class has been larger than the falloff in the number of jobs secured,” NALP Executive Director James G. Leipold said in a statement. “While the percentage of law school graduates who are unemployed and still seeking work ten months after graduation has come down by two and a half percentage points to 8.7 percent over the last three years, it continues to be more than twice as high as the unemployment rate measured nine months after graduation in the period prior to the recession, and this, more than anything remains an important marker of the current job market for law school graduates.”Jobs in private practice continue to be the largest source of jobs for recent graduates, employing 52.9 percent of the Class of 2016. The national median salary of $65,000 was essentially unchanged from the Class of 2015, a fact likely caused by a starting salary increase to $180,000, which shifted the distribution of salaries in the upper half of the salary range.The national mean salary, however increased from roughly $84,000 to roughly $90,300, while the mean law firm salary of $113,571 approached the mean of $115,000 for the Class of 2009. The report attributed the increase to the fact that there are fewer of the highest paying law firm jobs today than before the recession, but many of those jobs carry a higher starting salary.Other highlights from the report, which proceeds the annual “Jobs and JDs: Employment and Salaries of New Law School Graduates – Class of 2016” report that will be released this fall, include:• Full-time, long-term bar passage required jobs continue to be on the rise, yet have not reached pre-recession levels.• Government work continues to offer a steady source of jobs for law school graduates before, during and after the recession.• Jobs in education and solo practice have dropped back down to pre-recession levels.“There is some hope that we might be approaching homeostasis with supply and demand, that is, with law school enrollment ‘right-sizing’ itself we might be entering a period of time when the number of law school graduates more closely matches the number of jobs available,” Leipold said in the statement. “But, we also know that most jobs are not in fact earmarked for new law school graduates, and in many instances other than certain clerkship opportunities and many large law firm opportunities, graduates will continue to compete with other junior lawyers for most jobs, and it is still a scrappy and entrepreneurial job market where graduates often create their own job opportunities rather than being hired for a position that is vacant.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
