Canterbury to become England’s official kit partner

first_img“We believe we create the strongest kit out there – the last time our kit ripped in an international game was in 1976 – and we produce a technically advanced kit. The QBE Internationals in November will be the first presentation of the new kit, although it will be in retail from September onwards.”England have traditionally played in white, but Goldschmidt admitted today that the two parties were in discussions and any colour was possible for the new kit. What colour would you like to see England play in?

Canterbury CEO Chris Stephenson said: “Having watched the Six Nations the team look re-energised and have presented themselves well, and we’re very excited about the future. England unveil their black kit at Twickenham in 2011THE RFU have signed a four-year deal with Canterbury, who will supply kit for England’s senior team, Saxons, Sevens, Women’s and age-grade teams from September 2012 until after the World Cup in 2015, as the official kit partner to England Rugby.England’s kit has been provided by Nike in recent years, who were the mastermind behind the controversial black kit unveiled just before last season’s World Cup in New Zealand, and although the brand were keen to continue their sponsorship a deal could not be reached. However, the RFU are delighted to have struck a deal with traditional rugby brand, and RFU Chief Commercial Officer Sophie Goldschmidt said: “The technical aspect that Canterbury put into their kit and the quality of it speaks for itself, and it’s important to have a technically advanced kit to give us an edge on the field.“Canterbury is the leading rugby brand worldwide and has been making kit for years, and that tradition is important to the RFU. This is a very significant partnership and we’re very excited about this new relationship.”Goldschmidt revealed that discussions with Nike had reached advanced stages, and added: “I would like to thank Nike who have invested a lot in us over many years. It’s a partnership that has ended amicably.”last_img read more

She received several anonymous phone calls on 7 and 8 September and managed to record some of them.She complained about the threats to the human rights office of the national police, which considered them very alarming. She supplied the registration numbers of vehicles that had followed her. But when the national Press Freedom Foundation, FLIP, asked the prosecutor’s office about how the investigation was going, it said it had no information on the case.The threats to Duque began in 1999, when she began looking into irregularities in the official investigation of the Garzón case, with whose prosecution Reporters Without Borders is officially associated.

Late Quaternary glacial history, flow dynamics and sedimentation along the eastern margin of the Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheet

first_imgGeological and geophysical data from the NE Antarctic Peninsula continental shelf are used to reconstruct the glacial history, flow-dynamics and sedimentation of the Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheet (APIS) along its eastern margin during the Late Quaternary. Ice advanced to the shelf edge during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and deposited a stiff till across the shelf. The presence of highly attenuated bedforms indicates that fast-flowing outlets drained the APIS through cross-shelf troughs to the outer shelf after this ice advance. The bedforms are formed in deformation till in response to deforming bed processes. Deglaciation of Robertson Trough and the troughs of Prince Gustav Channel, Larsen-A and Larsen Inlet was continuous (and possibly rapid) on account of the absence of ice-margin recessional features. In contrast, grounding-zone wedges across the shelf of Northern Larsen-A and south of Prince Gustav Channel indicate that ice retreat was gradual and was punctuated by stillstands. The transition from a grounded ice sheet to ice shelf conditions was completed before 11–12 14C ka BP on the shelf south of Prince GustavChannel, and is marked across the shelf by a change from subglacial till to a transitional heterogeneous unit dominated by coarse-grained facies. Transitional sediments record mainly sub-ice shelf rain-out and restricted bottom current and sediment-laden plume activity, as well as localised debris flows. Meltwater-derived facies are largely absent indicating that release of meltwater was not significant beneath polar ice shelves, or during deglaciation of the APIS. In the broader context, the colder, eastern side of the APIS was extensive and was drained mainly through fast-flowing outlets (palaeo-ice streams). Therefore, the eastern APIS would have been an important contributor to sediment and iceberg flux to the Weddell Sea Embayment during the LGM and subsequent deglaciation.last_img read more

first_imgBar Risa, Hythe Bridge StreetSaturday 16 AprilAfter an hour and a half of freely flowing beer and copius numbers of cocktail pitchers, the Saturday night Jongleurs crowd were always going to be up for a laugh. This certainly made it easier for compere Andy White as he worked his way through some standard audience banter complete with reasonably witty topical comments, before handing a thoroughly warmed-up audience over to Kevin Dewsbury. Dewsbury delivered a series of wry social observations, making it clear what makes him a Kevin and definately not a ‘Kev’, and sharing his frustration at the frequent need to explain that Cheshire is not in fact populated by the fit female denizens of Hollyoaks: “’Cos if it were, why would I leave?” Quite.Next up was self-proclaimed ‘Souf London geezer’ Harry Denford, a man whose bombastic voice is second only to his girth. Blustering on stage in a roar of expletives, Denford’s presence commanded complete attention and he quickly gained control of his audience. After dispensing with the obligatory “fat bastard” and :Souf London” gags, he moved onto more original territory by recounting his experiences as a former airline pilot and his way with the ladies. In these routines he deftly led seemingly predictable gags in unexpected directions, delivering punchy lines to confound the audience. He used bully- boy tactics, and even managed to force some unsuspecting males from the crowd onstage for what seemed little more than a torrent of unnecessarily harsh abuse. But towards the end of the show, even this achieved a comic climax as he somehow convinced them to perform a Full Monty.With a regular Tuesday night slot at London’s Comedy Store and numerous TV and radio appearances under his belt, veteran circuit performer Sean Meo came equipped with a reputation for brutal satire. He began his set tamely, playing the laconic Brit delivering pithy observations on the state of the British railways and illegal immigrant London cabbies. As the set progressed, Meo’s profoundly macabre humour knew no bounds, venting spleen on Germans and starving African children with equal vehemence. Gags about terrorist taxi drivers and deformed midgets occasionally stretched beyond the bounds of decency, yet Meo broadly managed to walk the fine line between humour and discomfort with the ease of a consummate professional.Meo’s biggest crowd pleaser was undoubtedly his audience banter. Within minutes he honed in on his chosen unwitting targets for the evening, manipulating their responses to his seemingly innocuous questions and then launching into a relentless barrage of cutting jibes. With a group of hairdressers in the front row, he was never going to be short of material. Despite often resorting to cheap insults, his vituperative wit remained close enough to real life to ensure that laughs were plentiful: proof positive that well-aimed invectives will always be funny however unashamedly un-PC.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2005last_img read more
