first_imgBrookes 10 – 8 Greyhounds FREEZING cold conditions did nothing to deter players on either side from attacking with physicality, but Brookes’ staunch defending denied the Greyhounds a second victory to follow their more assured performance at Iffley just over a month ago.From kick-off Oxford carried the ball through the forwards, which proved successful when they scored after just five minutes. A solid lineout gave them good ball from which the forwards could apply pressure on their opponents defence and a rolling maul tumbled over the line to put 5 points on the board. Unlike at the home fixture, Brookes responded quickly to the Greyhounds’ attempt to control the match, and a late tackle on their fly-half put them in a good position. A smoothly executed move saw the ball passed deftly through the backs and put the Brookes full-back in the corner, where he dived over the line to draw his team level.The ‘hounds pack worked hard to dominate up front, but without first-phase ball the backs struggled to link up, and handling errors prevented them from scoring on a few promising breaks. They were also restricted by very aggressive tackling, and the Brookes’ flanker was sent to the sin bin after a series of over-zealous tackles.With the score drawn at 5-5, the game was punctuated with penalties as both teams were caught offside, with Oxford’s scrum-half eventually sent off for 10 minutes. But the winger salvaged three points just before half-time, when Brookes were blown up for pulling down a maul, and the ball sailed between the posts to give the visitors the advantage going into the second half.In an unusual decision, the referee responded to claims against Brookes for foul play in the ruck with a yellow card for the Greyhounds. They then struggled in the scrum and the home side’s flanker burst out to make a break up the left wing and score. In the last quarter, the ‘hounds were unlucky not to score with the ball held-up over the line and a missed penalty, but their inability to convert late possession into chances was testament to the resiliance of the underdogs’ defence.last_img read more

first_imgAt one point during the years of 1994 through 1999, Stinson enjoyed winning streaks of 29 and 38 games, winning five NJSIAA state sectional championships. It was an era never before seen in Hudson County and never will be witnessed again.Think about it. Stinson had a five-year stretch where the Red Wings (back then two words) posted a record of 68-1. That’s no misprint. Any football team posting that kind of record anywhere is astounding. Stinson did it right here in our backyard.“When I think about my career, I had a tremendous amount of great players,” Stinson said.He’s right. Stinson had players like Terrell Dortch, Keeon Walker, Rashard Casey, Ravon Anderson, Jason Cassesa, Wilber Valdez — all of whom went on to major college football.“They went on well beyond high school,” Stinson said. “They went to schools all across the country. Without them, none of this ever happens.”Stinson also thanked his wife, Marie, and his four daughters, Marie, Stacy, Kristen and Erin for their support.“They went beyond being proud of their father and husband,” Stinson said. “They validated the success we had over the years.”Stinson was asked if he reflects back to his Hoboken days, especially at times such as these.“As the years go by, I become more and more nostalgic,” Stinson said. “It’s amazing to think that 20 years ago, I had those great players and it starts to creep into your mind, the historical perspective.”Stinson said that he did pause to reflect about the other Hudson County honorees in the NJSIAA Hall of Fame. This is like the granddaddy of high school Hall of Fames in New Jersey, when the state association honors you.“I did take a look at the others and noticed that Joe Coviello [the legendary Memorial football coach] is the only other football coach from Hudson County in this Hall of Fame,” Stinson said. “Joe Coviello was someone I looked up to. He’s someone who coached against the great Vince Lombardi. He taught so many local people about football. And he was a real gentleman. Being the only other football coach from Hudson County in this Hall is a true humbling experience.”Stinson, who was the head coach at places like St. Anthony and Queen of Peace in recent years, and also had stints at Park Ridge and Pascack Hills High School in between his two stints as head coach at Hoboken, ended his 44-year coaching career with a 254-85-5 record.Stinson gained induction with such legendary figures as Al Leiter, the former Yankee and Mets All-Star hurler who once struck out an unbelievable 32 batters in one game for Central Regional High School back in 1984, Milt Wagner, the Camden basketball star who was a key figure in Louisville’s NCAA championship of 1985, Ron “Itchy” Smith, another Camden High School basketball superstar, the late Dr. David Sime, the Fair Lawn track and field Olympian, and John Millar, the legendary soccer coach from Kearny High School.Stinson remembered his first year of being a head coach at Hoboken. It was 1977 and the district was still reeling from the teacher’s strike. He took over the program and guided the Red Wings to a 2-6-1 record. That’s not exactly Hall of Fame material.“I didn’t know if kids wanted to play football back then,” Stinson said. “But that season was certainly a motivating factor to get better. We didn’t exactly start out great, but we ended up getting greater appreciation.”Three years later, Stinson won the first of his six NJSIAA state championships and the rest, as they say, was history.“We beat some good teams along the way,” Stinson said. “It’s certainly not a bad way to end the career. I was happy to get this award. This is the true Hall of Fame, the real one that is statewide. The others I’ve received are nice, but this one stands out.”As well it should. Of all the inductees going back to the initial Class of 1996, only 11 hailed from Hudson County. That says it all…Probably the biggest surprise of the recent Cutter Classic wrestling tournament over the weekend was the performance of Secaucus 220-pounder Saummy Duran.Duran entered the tourney as the No. 3 seed in his bracket, but advanced to the finals with wins over Patrick Brand of Fair Lawn (a pin in 4:36) in the quarterfinals and a 6-4 overtime decision over Andreas Harilau of River Dell in the semifinals.Duran’s dream tourney ended with a defeat to top seeded Mike Urgiles of New Milford in the finals, but for someone who has only been wrestling since he was a sophomore, the strong outing in the season-opening tourney had to open some eyes.“I’ve been working my butt off for this,” said Duran, who lost twice in the tournament the last two years. “My coach [Ed Roesing] told me that I could do it.”“I’ve been coaching him in football and I thought he had what it takes to be a wrestler, so I encouraged him to come out,” Roesing said. “His work ethic is a cut above everyone. He works as hard as anyone I’ve ever coached. He takes charge out there. He cares about everyone. He set his mind this year at this tournament to do something special.”The Secaucus coaching staff is comprised of Ed Roesing and younger brother Sean. Sister Cory is the head volleyball coach. It’s a family that definitely gives back.The strong performance has to help Duran for the rest of the season.“I was confident coming in, but I am more confident now,” Duran said. “Coach said I was going to make it to the finals and I did it. I think I’m starting to realize what he was talking about. I think I can hang now with anyone.” – Jim HagueJim Hague can be reached via e-mail at [email protected] × It was a great day for Ed Stinson last Monday, when the Hoboken native, current Secaucus resident, and long-time football coach was inducted into the NJSIAA Hall of Fame at the Pines Manor in Edison.It was an honor long overdue for Stinson, who set the high school football world on its ear during a reign of dominance at Hoboken High School in the 1990s.last_img read more

first_imgThere are an estimated 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK, but many of them lead their lives undiagnosed. For those who then enter the criminal justice system, prison can be extremely challenging. Autistic people can have communication difficulties, they are often hypersensitive to busy environments, sounds, bright lights or smells and may depend on routines.If someone’s disability is not identified, it’s much harder to recognise and meet their needs, reduce the likelihood of them reoffending and help them deal with any issues effectively.Notes to editorsThe National Autistic Society Autism Accreditation was established in 1992. It is the UK’s only autism-specific quality assurance programme of support and development for all those providing services to autistic people. It is a way for organisations to show they offer excellent support to autistic children and adults. To find out more about autism or the National Autistic Society, visit The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for people on the autism spectrum and their families. Founded in 1962, it provides information, support and pioneering services, and campaigns for a better world for people on the autism spectrum. The National Autistic Society has been running Autism Accreditation for over 25 years and started working with HMP/YOI Feltham to develop standards for prisons. Feltham then became the first prison in the world to be accredited in 2015. Accredited status is monitored, and a full re-assessment must take place after 3 years.The 3 institutions will formally be awarded accreditation at an event at the Ministry of Justice today at which both Youth Justice Minister Edward Argar and NAS Director, Carol Povey will make a short speech thanking the staff involved.Director of the National Autistic Society’s Centre for Autism, Carol Povey said: After an intensive inspection process and hundreds of hours of specialist training, the National Autistic Society (NAS) has awarded its prestigious ‘Autism Accreditation’ to HMP/YOI Parc, HMP Wakefield and the National Probation Service in Lancashire.Wakefield is the first Category A prison to be accredited while Parc is the first prison in Wales to receive accreditation. Lancashire is the first National Probation Service division to receive the award.Parc has established a dedicated unit for prisoners with learning difficulties at which specialist autism support is provided, including for education and physical activity, and autistic offenders are mentored by other prisoners throughout their sentence.Probation staff in Lancashire received specialist training at a local hospital to get experience of working with autistic people – this understanding is used to better support autistic offenders as they are released. At the same time, Wakefield is translating all documents into an easy-to-read format to make them more accessible to autistic offenders.Justice Minister Edward Argar said:center_img Prison and probation staff are responsible for supervising some of the most vulnerable people in society, many of whom have complex needs. This prestigious award demonstrates a real gold standard of provision and it takes years of commitment and hard-work to reach the high standards required. I want to pay tribute to the dedicated staff who have partnered with the National Autistic Society to support autistic offenders and I want to see more awards of this kind. We’re delighted to accredit National Probation Service in Lancashire, HMP Wakefield and HMP/YOI Parc – and that the Minister could help us mark this important moment. Prison and probation staff have worked incredibly hard to adapt and improve their practice – and this is already making a difference to the autistic people they work with. We hope that their achievements will encourage other prisons, probation and police services to work with us and improve their own autism practice. Justice Minister Edward Argar calls on other prisons and probation divisions to follow suit 3 more prisons working towards accreditation in coming monthslast_img read more

first_imgGrateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh will return to the East Coast in February, playing a pair of exciting shows at the Brooklyn Bowl. On February 12-13, Lesh will be in the house with his Terrapin Family Band, bringing a taste of the Dead to the renowned New York venue.Though Lesh typically plays The Capitol Theatre during his East Coast runs, recent performances have been a nice change of pace. After playing at the new Coney Island Amphitheater last summer, the bassist will play once more at the Brooklyn Bowl. His band will include Grahame Lesh, Alex Koford and Ross James, who comprise what is essentially the house band at Terrapin Crossroads.

first_imgOn Sunday night, Eric Clapton headlined the British Summer Time Hyde Park concert series in London. Clapton’s current touring band consists of Doyle Bramhall II (guitar), Sonny Emory (drums), Nathan East (bass), Paul Carrack (keys), Chris Stainton (keys), Sharon White (vocals), and Sharlotte Gibson (vocals). The London set was highlighted by several special guest appearances, including Marcella Detroit (Marcy Levy) and Carlos Santana.During his set, Clapton delivered 14 songs from his extensive catalog, including “Got To Get Better In A Little While” and “Layla” from his Derek and the Dominos days. He also pulled heavily from his influences with covers of J. J. Cale (“Somebody’s Knocking”, “Cocaine”), Robert Johnson (“Cross Road Blues”, “Little Queen of Spades”), Charles Segar (“Key To the Highway”), Willie Dixon (“I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man”), and more.Four songs into the set, Clapton switched gears from electric to acoustic for a four-song seated portion of the evening, which saw him perform “Driftin’ Blues” by Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” by Jimmy Cox, as well as “Layla” and “Tears in Heaven” from his own personal songbook.Upon returning to the electric guitar, Slowhand welcomed out vocalist and frequent collaborator Marcella Detroit, also known as Marcy Levy, to sing on “Lay Down Sally” and “The Core”, both songs she co-wrote with Clapton in the 1980s.During the encore of his set, Clapton welcomed out guitarist Carlos Santana to collaborate on a cover of Joe Cocker‘s “High Time We Went”, featuring keyboardist Paul Carrack on lead vocals.Thanks to YouTube, you can watch videos highlights from Eric Clapton’s set at British Summer Time Hyde Park below.[Video: Brosef Wilson][Video: banfibill]In related news, Eric Clapton recently announced that his final North American shows of 2018 will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City on October 6th and 7th. Earlier this year, he told BBC Radio 2 that he is losing his hearing and suffering from tinnitus, a ringing inside the ear that is often caused by prolonged exposure to loud noise. In that same interview, the legendary English musician—widely considered one of the greatest guitarist of all time—explained that he’s anxious about his ability to play his instrument and sing proficiently at the British Summer Time Festival in London’s Hyde Park (read interesting excerpts from that interview here). Now that the festival is behind him, Clapton only has the two NYC shows scheduled before he can finally call it quits.Setlist: Eric Clapton | British Summer Time Hyde Park | London, England | 7/8/18Somebody’s Knocking, Key to the Highway, I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man, Got To Get Better in a Little WhileAcoustic & Seated: Driftin’ Blues, Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out, Layla, Tears in Heaven, Lay Down Sally (w/ Marcy Levy), The Core (w/Marcy Levy), Wonderful Tonight, Cross Road Blues, Little Queen of Spades, CocaineE: High Time We Went (w/ Carlos Santana, Paul Carrack on vocals)last_img read more

first_imgBritain breaks record for coal-free electric generation FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:Britain has gone without coal-fired power generation for its longest stretch since the Industrial Revolution, breaking the existing record of 18 consecutive days this morning. The UK’s energy system has not used coal-fired plants for more than 438 hours, according to National Grid data, the longest uninterrupted period since 1882.The 18-day stretch has broken the UK’s previous record, which was set on 4 June 2019, partly because of a collapse in demand for electricity during the coronavirus lockdown and because of greater use of solar power.The UK set a new solar power record on 20 April after solar farms generated more than 9.6GW of electricity for the first time.The new coal-free record comes almost three years after the grid first ran without coal power for 24 hours for the first time. Since then, all but four of the UK’s coal power plants have shut in advance of a government ban on coal generation from 2025.Coal made up only 2.1% of the country’s total power mix last year, a dramatic fall from almost a quarter just four years ago.Britain’s dwindling fleet of coal plants still includes the West Burton A and Ratcliffe-on-Soar power stations in Nottinghamshire, the Kilroot facility in Northern Ireland and two generation units at the Drax site in Yorkshire, which are earmarked for conversion to burn gas.[Jillian Ambrose and Niko Kommenda]More: Britain breaks record for coal-free power generationlast_img read more

first_img continue reading » In February 2019, released their 2018 Generational Propensity Report which outlined homebuying trends based on generational groups. Here are the biggest takeaways:Millennials passed Generation X as the group taking on the most new mortgages in January 2017.As of November 2018, Millennials have the largest share of loan originations by dollar volume.Millennials make lower down payments and purchase less expensive homes than Gen X and Baby Boomers.Millennials take on larger mortgages due to making low down payments.So, what does this mean for you? Well, that long-held perception of Millennials being the quintessential renters in our economy should be thrown out the window. If you’re writing off Millennials as potential borrowers, you’re missing out on a huge piece of the homebuying market! While Generation X and Baby Boomers are in their prime (or beyond their prime) stage to earn income, Millennials are just now at the cusp—purchasing starter homes as their careers and income become solidified.
