Heineken Cup quarter-final previews

first_imgPredicted winner: LeinsterThis article orignally appeared in the April 2014 issue of Rugby World. Find out how to download back issues of Rugby World here. Munster v Toulouse Saturday 5 April, 1.30pm, Live on Sky Sports 2It might be considered in France a treasonable act to declare it, but  Toulouse coachGuy Novès has surely had his day. The great French club still have two international-class players in almost every position but some days they refuse to become switched on.Munster are the exact opposite. With Paul O’Connell defying the years so beautifully, Munster have talismen, intensity and staying power. They do not remotely have the same class as Toulouse, which makes you dream of a side that combines the pedigree of the French club with the passion of the Irish club. That combined team could dominate the tournament until kingdom come, or until O’Connell retires – whichever is the sooner.Are Toulouse bothered? They are  certainly good enough to win, but there is always the chance that they will be kicked out, in one sense (place-kicking) literally. The pretenders to the throne of the departed Ronan O’Gara have the chance to crown themselves. Close.Predicted winner: ToulouseBanging the drum: Clermont fans will be getting behind their team this weekendClermont v Leicester Saturday 5 April, 4pm, Live on Sky Sports 2The heart still bleeds for Clermont and their magnificent supporters. For me, their fans are the best in the tournament and, they seemed to fill about nine-tenths of the Aviva Stadium for last year’s final against Toulon. They also dominated about nine-tenths of the game, and it is to their credit that they have bounced back from that loss this season in the league and the Heineken Cup to become real contenders. Clermont are the best team in the competition, although that does not necessarily mean they will win it.Take Leicester away from the raucous Welford Road and they aren’t nearly so deadly. Against Ulster, neither Ben Youngs nor Toby Flood could give them any sort of edge. Indeed, it is a long time since Leicester’s play in attack was anything to write home about.It would be very surprising if their formidable willpower is enough to shake the French team burning with a desire to right the wrongs of last season.Predicted winner: ClermontMiddle man: Saracens prop Matt Stevens in action during last season’s game against UlsterUlster v Saracens Saturday 5 April, 6.30pm, Live on Sky Sports 2 Saracens fought back so well in their pool after an early home defeat by Toulouse that they marched to France with some confidence in a winner-tops-pool match. But they could not break out of the grip of a much-improved and deeply pragmatic Toulouse team, and therefore they were shunted through into the last eight only as a best runner-up.Ulster passed their own pool challenge – away to Leicester – with flying colours. With Ruan Pienaar orchestrating, they eventually saw the Tigers off with something to spare.Saracens will not be worried by the strength of the home support at Ravenhill, but whether they have the scoring power to cash in on periods of pressure is another matter. If you take it for granted that the home side will be awarded a minimum of six kickable penalties and that Pienaar will put over most of them, then you see the size of the Saracens task.Predicted winner: UlsterFinal hurrah: Leinster will be hoping they can mark Brian O’Driscoll’s last season with successToulon v Leinster Sunday 6 April, 4.30pm, Live on Sky Sports 3Another fascinating tie because the holders of the Heineken Cup have not quite been themselves this season. It is likely to be a contest between Jonny Wilkinson’s boot – and there are suggestions that his brilliant early-season form is now waning – and Leinster’s ability to score through positive attacking play.Toulon will need to choose their first team and stick to it; they will need all the old veterans in their squad to stay the course, and Bakkies Botha to be at his stroppy best. Leinster have the extra goal that any game now could be Brian O’Driscoll’s last hurrah in European competition, in which both he and his club have played at rarefied heights.Toulon, if they are on their game, may sneak it but this is the most difficult quarter-final to predict, and if Leinster’s attacking machine is purring, it may yet put them beyond the range of Wilkinson from the kicking tee.

Obama Administration Announces Additional Steps to Increase Energy Security

first_imgThe Ground Systems Power and Energy Lab (GSPEL)’s 8 state-of-the-art labs offer an unprecedented range of test and validation capabilities for emerging power, energy and mobility technologies at a single facility.  The Army’s best and brightest ground vehicle research scientists, engineers and technicians combined with GSPEL’s unique facilities, will enable the Army to innovate tomorrow’s energy solutions. SHARE Army Opens a New Lab to Develop the Next Generation of Combat VehiclesOn April 11, the Army will open a new lab at Detroit Arsenal that will develop cutting edge energy technologies for the next generation of combat vehicles.  Through a partnership with academia and industry, these advances may also hold promise for passenger and commercial vehicles.  Shared access of this facility with industry and academia will facilitate the exchange of information and ideas to develop emerging energy technologies.  Developing advanced technologies for tactical and non-tactical ground vehicles that support our military forces at home and abroad will make our forces more combat effective while helping save American families dollars at the pump. Administration Announces Progress on Advanced Biofuels Initiative Army to Road-Test Advanced Energy Technologies in Green Warrior Convoy As part of required road-tests of advanced energy technologies and systems developed at the GSPEL, the Army will announce its plans to launch a Green Warrior Convoy of vehicles in 2013.  The convoy will test and demonstrate the Army’s advanced vehicle power and technology including fuel cells, hybrid systems, battery technologies and alternative fuels.  These technologies will extend range and endurance of combat forces – helping them to defend the nation better.  This convoy will stop at schools, colleges, communities and military facilities along the way to show members of the military and public the importance of energy improvements. Facebook Twitter Home Energy Obama Administration Announces Additional Steps to Increase Energy Security These new steps build on President Obama’s unwavering commitment to energy security for America’s warfighters, and to a sustained, comprehensive strategy to ensure a secure energy future for all Americans.  Since the President took office, domestic oil and gas production has increased each year.  At the same time, our reliance on foreign oil has decreased – a trend expected to continue thanks in part to the historic fuel economy standards established by President Obama, effectively doubling the efficiency of the cars we drive and saving consumers thousands at the pump.  In 2011, U.S. crude oil production reached its highest level since 2003, increasing by an estimated 120,000 barrels per day over 2010 levels.  Overall, oil imports have been falling since 2005, and net imports as a share of total consumption declined from 57 percent in 2008 to 45 percent in 2011 – the lowest level since 1995. Obama Administration Announces Additional Steps to Increase Energy Security In addition, today, the Energy Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency will launch a research competition to engage our country’s brightest scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs in improving the capability of energy storage devices that can be used in the battlefield and for civilian applications.  And, building on President Obama’s State of the Union commitment, the Department of Defense (DoD) will make one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, with a new goal to deploy three gigawatts of renewable energy – including solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal – on Army, Navy, and Air Force installations by 2025 – enough to power 750,000 homes. Energy Department Launches Competition to Make Energy Storage More Effective and Safe Through its Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E), the Department of Energy is funding a $30 million research competition that will engage our country’s brightest scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs in improving the capability of energy storage devices, including batteries.  ARPA-E’s new “Advanced Management and Protection of Energy-storage Devices” (AMPED) program will promote the development of next-generation energy storage sensing and control technologies, including enhancing the performance of hybrid energy storage modules being developed by the DoD for war-fighting equipment.  Specifically, AMPED technologies have the potential to: SHAREcenter_img Renewable energy is critical to making our bases more energy secure.  Together with emerging microgrid and storage technologies, reliable, local sources of renewable power will increase the energy security of our nation’s military installations.  By doing so, the DoD is better able to carry out its mission to defend the nation.  To meet these goals at no additional cost to the taxpayer, DoD will leverage private sector financing through authorities such as Power Purchase Agreements, Enhanced Use Leasing, Utility Energy Savings Contracts, and Energy Savings Performance Contracts.  Increase the fuel efficiency of military generators to help reduce the need for fuel-convoys on the battlefield;Improve the reliability of military aircraft generators to help to reduce operation and maintenance costs;Enable next generation high power weapons systems and fuel efficient operations for Navy ships;Create a new generation of electric and hybrid-electric vehicles; andEnhance the efficiency and reliability of the U.S. electricity grid. Facebook Twitter To date, ARPA-E has hosted four rounds of competitions and attracted over 5,000 applications from research teams, resulting in approximately 180 cutting edge projects. By Gary Truitt – Apr 11, 2012 Today, the Obama Administration is announcing new steps to bolster energy security for America’s warfighters – underscoring the significant and inherent connection between energy independence and national security.  In Michigan, the Army will open a new 30,000-square-foot lab to develop cutting edge energy technologies for the next generation of combat vehicles.  This new lab will support the launch of the Army Green Warrior Convoy, which will test and demonstrate advanced vehicle technology including fuel cells, hybrid systems, battery technologies and alternative fuels. High global oil prices affect every part of our economy – from middle class families, to small businesses, to the Department of Defense.  DoD estimates that for every $1 increase in the price of a barrel of oil, we incur an additional $130 million in fuel costs.  That is why, as part of his Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future, President Obama challenged the Departments of Navy, Energy and Agriculture to partner with private industry to accelerate the commercialization of drop-in biofuels for military and commercial use. The three departments developed a plan to spur private industry and financiers to construct or retrofit multiple integrated biorefineries capable of producing millions of gallons of fuel annually from domestic feedstocks and at a competitive price.  On March 29, the Department of Defense’s Defense Production Act Executive Agent published advanced notice of a broad area announcement (BAA) soliciting proposals for the advanced drop-in biofuel production project.  The project’s goal is to establish commercial-scale biorefineries in different regions of the U.S. producing jet and naval biofuels from diverse feedstocks via different processes. A Biofuel Industry Roundtable will be held on May 18 in Washington D.C. and will bring together the market and industry expertise necessary to develop a domestic biofuel market capable of producing alternative fuel that is cost-competitive with traditional fuel. Source: The White House Defense Department Increases Commitment to Renewable Energy to 3 Gigawatts DoD is making one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by developing a goal to deploy three gigawatts of renewable energy – including solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal – on Army, Navy, and Air Force installations by 2025 – enough to power 750,000 homes.  This effort furthers the commitment President Obama made during the State of the Union to develop 1 gigawatt of renewable energy on Navy installations by 2020.  The Air Force goal of obtaining 1 gigawatt by 2016 and the Army goal of obtaining 1 gigawatt by 2025 support the broader DoD goal to meet 25 percent of its energy needs with renewable energy by 2025.

LCS ASW mission package reaches two testing milestones

first_imgThe anti-submarine warfare mission package for the littoral combat ships has met two testing milestones, the US Navy’s Program Executive Office Unmanned and Small Combatants (PEO USC) has announced.The first was a ten-day Dockside-1 test event on the dual-mode array transmitter (DART) mission system towed body and associated launch-and-recovery assembly components in Fort Pierce, Florida.The second was a full-power, in-water test of the active array at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Seneca Lake Detachment’s test facility in Dresden, New York.“The Seneca Lake Test was a huge step forward for the DART System and the ASW Mission Package as a whole. This revolutionary technology is critical to countering the rising submarine threats worldwide,” said LCS Mission Module Program Manager Capt. Ted Zobel.The array previously was tested at Raytheon’s shallow-water facilities in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. This test on Seneca Lake was the first opportunity for the new technology to be demonstrated in an open-water test environment, which allows better understanding of how the system will perform when deployed on an LCS. The successful completion of this test event provided navy officials and industry partners valuable information on performance specifications and options for future modifications.DART development includes incremental testing of the individual system components followed by progressively more inclusive integration and testing until the full ASW mission package has been tested.The Dockside-1 test a week prior to the Seneca Lake event had LCS sailors overseeing and actively engaging in the operation of the DART mission system at the Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute’s waterside product integration, assembly and test complex.Dockside-2 testing, planned for autumn 2018, will expand the scope of DART system integration to add three additional Raytheon mission modules to complete the system. The navy will take delivery of the DART Mission System from Raytheon later this year and plans to take the system to the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center early next year for additional testing.

Oxford club in zebra furore

first_imgOrganisers of Carbon club night ‘Zoo’ have cancelled controversial plans to showcase a “real life zebra” at their Mayday party following pressure from animal rights groups and local people.A statement on their Facebook page yesterday announced, “Due to problems with…Animal Rights opposition we are no longer allowed the Zebra for the evening. Please note that it was never in our intentions to cause any distress to the Zebra, it was to be enclosed in a large pen OUTSIDE of the smoking area.”Following the cancellation, PETA, The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation, commented, “We’re delighted to hear that the club has decided against having a zebra at its venue after receiving complaints from local people.“We commend the club for turning its back on this ill-conceived plan and are very grateful to the people of Oxford who have expressed their objection – it’s a wonderful example of the power that individuals have to make a positive difference in their community.”Upon learning of the intended plan prior to its cancellation, RSPCA Oxfordshire commented, “The idea is appalling.” They added, “Organizers of this event should be reported to the RSPCA and the venue should be boycotted by all those concerned for animal welfare. The only thing that could be done to ensure that no distress is caused to the animal would be for the idea to be quashed.”When initially contacted for comment earlier this week, PETA told Cherwell, “With high-tech animatronics and video deejays, there can be no justification for subjecting animals to the stress of travel, confinement, confusing conditions, bright lights and loud and scary noise. We hope Oxford students will see this stunt for what it is – a shameless ploy to sell tickets to an event on a competitive party night – and choose to support other local clubs that don’t exploit animals.” Carbon nightclub declined to respond to such criticisms.The national RSPCA stated that it is “not against the use of animals for any form of entertainment unless distress or suffering is likely to be caused.” In this case, however, the RSPCA stated it was “concerned that the safety and welfare of the zebra, or any other animal they may use, may be unnecessarily compromised for the purpose of entertainment,” and advised that the organisers sought expert advice about the welfare of animals used for entertainment. Several students have expressed their disbelief at the scheme, with one third year student commenting, “I think this a ridiculous and insane idea.”The Facebook group for the event advertised the night as “Guaranteed to be the biggest Mayday party in Oxford” with “something the Oxford clubbing scene has never seen before – a REAL LIFE ZEBRA!!”On the Facebook event page, the news that a live zebra was coming to Carbon was greeted by 27 likes, with one attendee commenting “genius!” and another stating it was going to be “epic.” Not everyone was so positive, however, with another posting, “Genius? I don’t think so. What a step backward for animal rights. How disappointing. A zebra will be transported, kept in a confined space and exposed to massive stress, how on earth is being responsible for animal cruelty something to be proud of?”Another posted, “This is absolutely abhorrent. How can these people use any animal in the name of entertainment? Have you got no respect or compassion for a creature that will be utterly stressed out of its mind. WHY? Is this poor Zebra really going to add to the nights ‘entertainment’? PLEASE think again – I don’t think having a zebra or any creature is going to add to the night out.”The organisers initially responded to the post by stating that it would be “outside” and “in its own pen” with “plenty of space.”The decision to withdraw plans for a zebra prompted mixed reactions. Second year Jane Northfield commented, “This has ruined my Mayday. I was really looking forward to seeing the zebra, and in fact, it was the main reason I chose to go. It really would have been special. It’s now going to be like Itchy Feet without the music.”However, Brookes student Eddy Allison stated, “Don’t worry ladies, the animal issue is sorted, I’ll be bringing a snake with me.”last_img read more
