BEN Fogle was impressed with the pace of Rugby Lea

first_imgBEN Fogle was impressed with the pace of Rugby League when he watched a game at Langtree Park earlier in the season.The TV personality and Typhoo ambassador spoke of how much he enjoyed it when he returned to the club to take part in kicking and tea tasting challenges recently.He was at Langtree Park asSaints announced the extension of their partnership with the brand.“It’s important Typhoo support a club like this,” he said. “I could imagine my kids coming here and watching these great rugby league players. It would inspire them onto the pitch and give them dreams and aspirations to follow.“I was lucky enough to come here earlier in the season and watch a match. Over the last year or two I have got to know the club, meet the players, and I am now beginning to understand the finer points of League. It is really fast, the pace is great.“My school was union based and I played to not a great level… I’m a wannabe sports person in an untoned body!”He continued: “There is a great family feel to the game and it very much felt like a club with great local support. League in general across the country is an untapped sport I think.“Perhaps this is the year for it to change with the World Cup. There will be a lot more focus on League later in the year and maybe more people will want to play it and it will start to grow.”last_img read more

JAMES Roby masterminded an outstanding Saints perf

crnksrcbu

first_imgJAMES Roby masterminded an outstanding Saints performance as they hammered Castleford 41-0.He was at his imperious best to score a brace and create several more to leave Nathan Brown’s men just 80 minutes from Old Trafford.Jordan Turner was magnificent in the centre of the park too and the defence tenacious whenever their line was threatened.It was an attitude that saw Saints lead 13-0 at the end of the first half.And in the second they simply turned the screw and ran in five more tries to underline their total dominance.Turner, Adam Swift and Tommy Makinson – on his 100th appearance for the club – all crossing before Kyle Amor and Mose Masoe bulldozed over.Most talk during the week centred around if the League Leaders could prove their Old Trafford credentials.They readjusted their line-up to move Mark Flanagan to scrum half and Gary Wheeler to centre.Josh Jones missed out; Alex Walmsley was suspended and that allowed Greg Richards and Luke Thompson to return.Saints were presented with the League Leaders Shield before kick off and made a solid start backed by a vociferous crowd.Both sides kicked well and playing out their sets – Saints just edging the territorial possession early doors.15 minutes in a mistake allowed Willie Manu to open up the defence but the home side just couldn’t make it pay.Saints continued to come though and a set right on Castleford’s line after a great Hohaia kick gave them a real opportunity.And they didn’t disappoint, Roby scampering from close in to get Brown’s men on their way.Percival with the extras.Backed the superb kicking of Mark Flanagan and Jordan Turner Saints continued to push home their advantage and it was no surprise when James Roby opened up Castleford once more.Omitted from the Dream Team this week, he sidestepped twice to twist and turn his way to the try-line.Saints should have been further ahead on the half hour mark as Mark Percival – after a superb break – put Tommy Makinson over in the corner.But he was called back for a forward pass that simply never was.Castleford forced Saints to drop out on 37 minutes but two minutes later Jordan Turner emphasised Saints’ dominance with a drop goal right off the training ground.Lance Hohaia went close early in the second half and on their next attack they went further ahead…. and it was typical Saints.They kept the ball alive in the middle of the park and Roby combined with Soliola to catch Turner on a great line for his ninth of the season.Roby almost got his third on around 55 minutes and then Adam Swift picked off a loose ball and went fully 70 metres to increase Castleford’s woe.Michael Shenton was sinbinned on 65 minutes for impeding Paul Wellens on his way for a certain try and with space on the right Makinson crossed for his 28th of the year.Kyle Amor showed massive strength to get Saints’ sixth of the night with around 10 minutes to go and Mose Masoe produced a carbon copy five minutes later to leave the fans in raptures.Saints will choose their opponents in next Friday’s ClubCall.Match Summary:Saints: Tries: Roby (2), Turner, Swift, Makinson, Amor, MasoeGoals: Percival (6 from 7)Drop: TurnerTigers:Tries:Goals:Penalties: Saints: 7Tigers: 5HT: 13-0FT: 41-0REF: James ChildATT: TBCTeams:Saints: 17.

It was underweight. It was a little anemic,” Aquarium Curator, Julie Johnson said. “And so over the last few months we’ve been fattening it up, feeding it lots of food. It’s received some medication, some fluids, but mostly putting the weight back on.”Related Article: Man gets prison time for smuggling turtles in candy wrappersThe aquarium’s Animal Care Team helped the big girl out of a truck around 10:00 a.m. and on to the beach. The turtle slowly made her way down to the water and even stopped a few times to check out the crowd.This sea turtle did not get named during rehabilitation, but those who helped her get back on her fins are more than happy she is back where she belongs.“Seeing as their populations are in decline, it’s a major thing to get these animals back into the water especially when you have females that could be of possible breeding age,” Aquarist, Stacey Murray said. “So by, again, just getting this one healthy and getting her back into her environment hopefully we can get these populations moving along in future generations.”Loggerhead sea turtles are a threatened species in North Carolina and endangered in other states. Experts say there are a few things you can do to help the threatened species.“Clean up after themselves if they’re on the beach,” Johnson said. “Not to leave debris or plastics and to fill in any holes that they make in the beach. You know, you don’t think about that but if you dig a big hole a turtle could get stuck in it whether it’s an adult turtle or a hatchling and not be able to get back out to the ocean.”Many say today’s release was an experience they will never forget.“You could almost feel it, just the turtle sensing the ocean and wanting to get back to its home,” Simmons said.Johnson said the number of sea turtles they rehabilitate varies each year. They hope today’s release made a difference.last_img read more

Paid parking a possibility for Oak Islands future

crnksrcbu

first_img For others, like Eric Dawson, it can be a bit of a hassle.“We were down earlier in the week and we had a little bit of trouble parking, Eric Dawson said. “So we just kept riding around until a spot opened up.”Oak Island Mayor Cin Brochure says the town is in the process of making a proposal to see what costs would be to put in mobile pay for parking spaces. Some people don’t mind paying, while others don’t like the idea.Related Article: Near drowning at Oak Island, man airlifted to hospital“We don’t know if it’s safe to park here or if you can park here if you need a permit, Dawson said. “You don’t need a permit so if it’s a parking lot and we have to pay, we know we’re safe and we would definitely pay,” Dawson said.“That’s one of the nice draws to come to this beach, Rash said. “Because you can find a parking space and you’re not having to pay for it because you know we’re paying for other things at Oak Island. So i don’t think that’s a great idea. I don’t see it as a hectic situation,” Rash said.If the change ends up going through there will be no meters and people will pay online for parking.This proposal still has a long way to go, but if it all goes through residents who use the online application can be exempt from paying the parking fee. OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — One big perk of going to the beach at Oak island is free parking. Many people take full advantage of it, but could it become a thing of the past? If the Town of Oak Island has its way, paid parking could be in beach town’s future. For some, like Angie Rash, parking in Oak Island is effortless.“It’s been a really convenient experience, Angie Rash said. “There are multiple lots where you can park for free and it’s easy beach access and it’s one of the reasons why we come down to Oak Island.”- Advertisement – last_img read more

Teacher of the Week inspires AIG students at Southport Elementary

crnksrcbu

first_img A teacher for 19 years, Kleva has taught at Southport Elementary School in Brunswick County for the last eight years. This year, she’s teaching fourth grade English/Language Arts and Social Studies to Academically or Intellectually Gifted, also known as AIG, students.There are, of course, days that tug at her heart like the one day a student came to class devastated about a situation at home.“He just came to me one morning in tears and just cried, and we hugged,” she said. “I just wanted to take him home with me and make sure he was loved every minute, and couldn’t and so you just have to send them on their way and just pray they’re going to come back the next morning.”Related Article: South Brunswick parents talk growing vaping trend and how to get ahead of itSo what’s Kleva’s secret for keeping her AIG students engaged with the curriculum?“I’m loud, animated and have a really good rapport with my kids,” and she added, “We use humor a lot.”Having taught regular education students all her career, this school year posed a bit of a challenge for Kleva.“To pick up the pace and keep them challenged has been a challenge for me because they are such firecrackers and they are such different thinkers,” she said. “It’s interesting to take a step back and let them do some of the thinking and I love when they challenge me with questions that I marked wrong and why they knew they were right.”Because of Kleva’s ability to adjust to new challenges and engage her students daily, we selected her as WWAY and Mattress and Furniture Liquidators’ “Teacher of the Week.”SES Principal Peg Bourne says Kleva is extremely conscientious and deserving of this praise.“She cares very deeply about her students and it comes through every day in her teaching style,” Bourne said. “She’s really grown this year taking on the AIG chairperson [role] for our school.”So how does Kleva feel about this recognition?“I just feel so honored, we all deserve this all the time, I feel like I work with such great colleagues,” she said. “My administration is wonderfully supportive. I just think it’s just because of everybody else, that I’ve been nominated.”Despite the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ of teaching, Kleva knows she’s making an impact here with her students.“I go home on my toughest days and I’ve left here in tears and I’ve left here frustrated and I go home and I pray about it, and I really know that there is nothing else on this planet I want to do,” she said. SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — Teaching brings Amy Kleva lots of joy but there’s one day in particular she looks forward to each year, the first day of school.“Its that excitement of kids coming in and the brand newness,” she said. “Every single first day of school is my favorite.”- Advertisement – last_img read more

The Prime Minister said this whilst addressing a political activity in Mosta.He said that the issue is not a question of whether to publish or not but a question of when as it cannot prejudice Police investigations. He also said that he and his family have a vested interest in seeing this report published.The Prime Minister said that the European Union (EU) admitted in making a mistake because the Maltese economy is growing more than forecasted. He said that the number of people registering for work has decreased from 7,000 to 1,800 meaning that two-thirds of those that where registered as unemployed are now in employment.Muscat also said that poverty can only be contended with work and social services. He added that there are still 14,000 individuals that are living in unacceptable circumstances, and this is something that the government does not want to conceal, because it will not rest until its sees such a travesty eradicated.PL has created more work than the PNThe Prime Minister then mentioned how a government led by the PL has generated more work opportunities in the past six years than a government under the helm of the Partit Nazzjonalista (PN) did during its 25 year tenure.“Between 1987 and 2012, the others have created 56,500 jobs. We have created 66,000 in six years…. what took others 25 years, we did in only five years” said the Prime Minister.Infrastructure, Innovation and InclusionJoseph Muscat said that the priority is no longer on creating work but on improving the quality of life. He said that once the Maltese are putting the quality of life as a priority so will the government. He said that the government is basing it strategies for this principle on three pillars: infrastructure, innovation, and inclusion.Muscat said that the government wants to improve the current roads infrastructure so that travel time is reduced, wants to create innovation that allows workers to find a balance between their jobs and their families and also include by promoting unity instead of division.Muscat continued saying that the PN still does not have any principles and is therefore making contradicting declarations that are making no logical sense.The government’s social conscience The Prime Minister explained how the government is also showing its social conscience where from the original plan of creating 1,000 new social accommodation units; it will now be able to offer 1,700 of such units thanks to a change of plans.“This is a government that does not rest on its laurels… we are not going to rest after all these successes” said the Prime Minister who also mentioned the investments in the orthopaedic centre and at St Vincent de Paul, which also included restructuring of the section which accommodated young people who need care around the clock.last_img read more

MTN adverts insult Cell C and invade Vodacom turf

first_imgAdvertisement The ongoing battle between South Africa’s three major mobile networks has seen MTN advertise outside Vodacom’s headquarters and suggest Cell C’s new pricing structure is inferior.MTN’s new outdoor campaign featuring posters on street poles right outside Vodacom’s headquarters in Lever Road, Midrand, Johannesburg.The advertising campaign seems to be directed at Vodacom since it advises customers who have a malfunctioning mobile phone to “go back” and visit their walk-in and repair service centre on Richard’s Drive, which is only an 11 minute drive (7km) south of Vodacom World in Midrand.MTN seems actively on a mission to conquer their competitors using their current semi-comparative advertising campaign without mentioning any names.South Africa’s third largest network, Cell C was also targeted by MTN’s advertising campaign through radio adverts prior to the invasion of Vodacom World. – Advertisement – Cell C launched their “papa’s got a brand new pack” campaign earlier this year and MTN’s latest radio adverts suggest Cell C’s new “99c For Real” pricing structure is inferior.MTN said its “MTN Zone Mahala” has “the most attractive rates” that “are applicable at various times of the day which allows customers flexibility for when they would like to call.”“The new pricing announced by competitors would in fact be uncompetitive based on our customers’ current usage,” explained MTN.Following this, MTN released their radio adverts which feature Cell C’s “papa” and ultimately dismisses Cell C’s product as inferior.Cell C CEO, Alan Knott-Craig responded to MTN’s radio ad campaign by telling BusinessTech: “It’s nice that someone else is paying for our advertising.”Chris Moerdyk, a leader in South African marketing, explained to mybroadband these telecommunication companies are not engaging in comparative advertising since the only comparisons being made are “couched in innuendo” because they are not allowed to make use of comparative advertising in the country.Source: HumanIPOlast_img read more

Assange to Googles Schmidt I dont use email

crnksrcbu

first_imgAdvertisement Wikileaks has released a transcript of a wide-ranging meeting between Eric Schmidt and Julian Assange ahead of a book launch.The site on Friday released a five-hour transcript of a June 2011 meeting between Julian Assange, one of the whistle-blowing site’s founders, and Eric E. Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman.The meeting was also attended by Jared Cohen, who was an advisor to former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Cohen has been working with Schmidt on a book called “The New Digital World” due to be released next Tuesday. – Advertisement – At the time of the chat, Assange was staying in Norfolk, England, with Vaughan Smith, the founder of the journalism organization the Frontline Club while his extradition case continued. Assange remains in the U.K. today, holed up in Ecuador’s London embassy although Britain has approved his extradition to Sweden related to sexual assault allegations.The lengthy transcript of the meeting with Schmidt offers an interesting fly-on-the-wall account of a wide-ranging conversation between two technology luminaries, with Assange recounting anecdotes of his Wikileaks work and weaknesses in computer security that have rendered Wikileaks much less active.Assange told Schmidt that the system for issuing SSL certificates — which cryptographically verify that a web site is legitimate — is flawed. Hackers have been able to break into companies that issue the certificates and generate their own, which could compromise the secrecy of submission to websites such as Wikileaks.“The browser-based public key system that we have for authenticating what websites you are going to, it is awful. It is truly awful,” Assange said. “The number of people that have been licensed to mint keys is so tremendous.”Near the end of the transcript, Schmidt asks Assange how he is able to communicate with Wikileaks’ staff. Assange goes on to say he tends to meet people in person.“I mean I assume you can do email and all that, no?” Schmidt asks.“I don’t use email,” Assange responds.“Why not, because it’s…?” Schmidt asks.“Too dangerous,” Assange said. “And encrypted email is possibly even worse, because it is such a flag for end point attacks … but we do have encrypting phones. Unfortunately they don’t work in all countries, but the SMSs work in all countries.”Assange also recounted an amusing story of a Wikileaks volunteer who was being stalked.In 2008, the Wikileaks staff member was approached in a supermarket parking lot by a person Assange claims in the transcript may have been with British intelligence. The confident, well-dressed agent told the Wikileaks volunteer that it would be in his best interest to have a chat over coffee, which Assange said was “a clear threat.”The agent, Assange said, was told by the Wikileaks worker that he “wasn’t interested in men. See you later! Sorry buddy!” according to the transcript.Credit: ComputerWorldlast_img read more

SIMON NOTT CHELTENHAM Thursday Report

crnksrcbu

first_imgBEN BEFORE RACING13:30 JLT Novices’ ChaseHalf a million and some down going into day three so a massive hill to climb. Betting was steady in the opener with Terrefort and Shattered Love the two they wanted to be on hence losers with us.The pain continued, the two worst in the book led over the last. We had no possible chance. More noughts added to the ever increasing losses.14:10 Pertemps Network Final Handicap HurdleGlenloe opened at 7/2 for the 23-runner Pertemps so one to take on. It seemed the ring and the exchanges felt the same too as the gelding was soon chased out to 9/2 as everyone tried to get it in their books. The office laid a couple of chunky bets Sort It Out and Forza Milan £48k – £6k and £44k – £4k respectively. Money on the course was steady but modest in comparison.The jolly touched 5/1 in the ring with some books sticking their heads over the exchange price parapet. They might have regretted that when one off course firm started snapping up the 9/2 each-way.Brand ambassador Davy Russell did the ring a small favour landing the gamble on Delta Work by a nose from the jolly as most business was done on the winner before racing. Davy’s mount was a small winner in the on-course book but those on the plot didn’t leave the office out, yet another overall loser.14:50 Ryanair ChaseWith Un De Sceaux odds-on for the Ryanair, Ben was hoping for a so far elusive monster bet to get beaten to try and dig the firm out of the financial hole.Once again the lumpy punters, if there were any left us out. We still managed to take plenty out of the jolly though losing just over five figures at the off on course. The office laid a bet of £8,000- £11,000 but nothing like had been hoped for.Our brand ambassador Davy Russell proved to be the saviour of the betting ring with his famous 8/1 victory on Balko Des Flos. No sooner had we started to celebrate, thinking we might have turned a corner, the office called, they’d laid a bet of £40,000 – £5,000 on the winner virtually as they were off. Talk about a crushing blow. It seemed that faint light at the end of the tunnel is just a pin prick now.15:30 Sun Bets Stayers’ HurdleThe bets came in thick and fast in the office for the Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle with some colossal bets for Sam Spinner at 3/1 then a £100,000 – £7,000 Penhill, on course was smaller and steady though we laid £20,000 – £600 each way The World’s End and some office money on Bacardys at 16/1.You could not make it up. Penhill winning really did appear to be the final nail in the coffin of the Festival for the firm.16:10 Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap ChaseIt’s very difficult to get to work on a race like the Brown Advisory when you’ve just lost £120,000 on one horse that was a cracking result in everyone’s book around you.

STAR SPORTS GREYHOUND DERBY Just 12 remain

crnksrcbu

first_imgSTAR SPORTS GREYHOUND DERBY: Just 12 dogs remain and one will be crowned 2019 Star Sports Greyhound Derby Winner. Julie Collier with all the latest news on the semi-final draw and the quarter-final action from Nottingham. I keep thinking the racing in each round of the Star Sports Derby can’t be as good as the previous round. But it keeps delivering! I was at Nottingham for the quarter-finals on Saturday night working for RPGTV. We tried something new, our reports are now completely live plus we have a reporter and presenter as well as an extra camera. We are basically trying to get as close to the old Sky Sports style programme without any of the budget! The feedback I’ve heard so far has been excellent and we will continue to work to make it even better! LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS Something struck me Saturday night. So many of the trainers love a laugh and a joke and there has been a lot of banter during this years Derby. But once they have their hands on their dogs and are parading, the professionalism is amazing. They are fully focused on that dog and getting them through to the next round of the Derby. I was in the middle of the track pre-race and it’s actually very quiet when the dogs are milling around and heading towards the traps, its really intense! And once again, it shows how much it means to everyone involved. LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS I was sad to see Droopys Verve go out of the Star Sports Derby on Saturday night. We all want the good dogs to progress, which they have for the most part, but Verve was the biggest name casualty of the quarter-finals. His flying time in the third round showed what he is still capable of and I had hoped the penny had dropped so to speak. But sadly, it wasn’t to be. A bitterly disappointed Jimmy Wright said after the race ‘thats racing, he looked set to at least qualify, if not win, then got knocked back to last.’ It must have been tough for Angela Harrison coming straight back out to parade Droopys Expert but he is safely through and is doing them proud. LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS Mark and Hayley Keightley have Roxholme Glory through to the semi-finals on Saturday, they lost Roxholme Jim from the competition in the same race. It’s been a really tough time for the kennel as Mark’s mum sadly passed away, the funeral was on Friday. Being part of the Derby at these later stages is hopefully helping to lift their spirits a little and who knows, Mark’s mum loved the dogs so maybe they have an extra helping hand up there now. LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS Well done to Kevin Hutton getting his two runners through to the Star Sports Derby semi-finals. Both defending champion Dorotas Wildcat and Magical Bale are looking like they are at the top of their game and both have very realistic chances of winning the Derby. It’s a shame they’ve been drawn in the same heat alongside each other, Wildcat on the outside of Bale. There were loud groans at the draw when Wildcat’s name came out! One Star Sports punter has certainly taken a view on the race and has bet £2,000 Magical Bale to win the Derby at 4/1. LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS Not only have the kennel mates been drawn together, so have the two bitches, Ballymac Tas and Queen Beyonce (pictured below). Of the two, Beyonce looks like she could beat anything right now and I was particularly taken with her performance on Saturday night. To come from behind an Irish Derby winner is some feat! Rab gives her plenty of cuddles and ear rubs on parade and she is paying him back ten-fold. Hers is a story we will be able to follow for years to come as she will head into their breeding paddocks once her racing career is over. For now though, if anybody out there has any way of contacting THE Beyonce to see if she is interested in whats happening at Nottingham right now, do let me know. LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS I interviewed Patrick Guilfoyle again on Saturday night – he is such a nice man and he thinks the world of his dog Skywalker Logan. He is also convinced the dog is clever rather than lucky in how he finds a bit of room to manoeuvre when needed. He managed to run on to qualify on Saturday night. EVERYONE involved in the Derby would give their right arm just for qualification at this stage. Logan certainly still has his supporters. On Saturday night Star Sports Martin Chapman layed £500 at 10/1 for Logan to win the Derby. If he can get to the final, he could have a big say. LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS I love the little bits you get to see when you’re lucky enough to be as close to the dogs as I am, I am very lucky. There was a nice moment on parade with Nicky Holland and Nice Charmer (who subsequently went out of the Derby). He couldn’t have looked at her more adoringly and gently nuzzled into her when she stopped stroking his chin for a moment. He had pet written all over him; ‘charming by name, charming by nature’ was NIcky’s comment! Then I saw him at the pick-up! He wasn’t interested in the decoy hare, he wanted the real thing with a vengeance! He pulled off the box and got it! Not so charming post-race perhaps… LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDS The ‘fastest to halfway’ stats (provided by The Greyhound Star) from the quarter-finals make for interesting reading. There is no surprise that Magical Bale clocked the fastest sectional to half way after his joint fastest of the competition 4.88 split. Next was Ballyanne Sim, then Droopys Expert, Dorotas Wildcat and Priceless Blake. All five of them are drawn in the same semi-final on Saturday! As they say, early pace wins the race…or in this case, exceptional early pace could win the race… LATEST STARSPORTS.BET ODDSI’m sure by now, many if not all the dogs left in the Derby have a little niggle here and there. For any trainers reading this, I hope you all have a good week with your dogs. Just one race left and you could be in the final of the greatest greyhound race in the world.LATEST VIDEOSSTAR SPORTS GREYHOUND DERBY 2019: Our expert panel preview the 2019 Star Sports Greyhound Derby held for the first time at Nottingham Greyhound Track.Our panel, hosted by Julie Collier is:Kevin Hutton Greyhound Derby Winning TrainerMartin Chapman ‘Lofty’ Star Sports Greyhound ExpertIan Fortune Irish Greyhound ExpertTo check out the latest betting for the Star Sports Greyhound Derby visithttps://starsports.bet/event/greyhoundracing/228423/greyhound-derby-2019/ante-postYou can also download the Star Sports App, full details at:https://www.starsportsbet.co.uk/new-the-star-sports-app/STAR SPORTS GREYHOUND DERBY 2019LEADING ENGLISH CONTENDERS<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>LEADING IRISH CONTENDERS<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>IRISH OUTSIDERS<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>ENGLISH OUTSIDERS<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>WHAT TO EXPECT<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Kevin Hutton is the Star Sports defending Derby champion having won his first ever Greyhound Derby at Towcester last year with superstar dog Dorotas Wildcat. Now the Derby moves to Nottingham and ‘Cat-mandoo’ will be back to defend his crown, backed up by a very smart team.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>BALLYMAC OSBYBallymac Osby was one of the dogs stolen from the Hutton kennel this time last year and came back in the worst state – it was touch and go for a while. He has gone on to become a very nice dog and heads into the Derby as a lively 50/1 chance.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>KINGSBROOK GLYNKevin hasn’t had Kingsbrook Glyn in his hands very long, in fact the first round of the Derby will be just his second race for the kennel. He’s a youngster who looks to have a very big future over slightly further distances than the 500m at Nottingham but, as a staying sort who will handle the trip and the rigours of a Derby, he takes his chance this week.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>DOROTAS WILDCATThe 2018 Star Sports Greyhound Derby winner was a very classy champion. Since then he has won the Eclipse at Nottingham, a track he loves. He’s also been on stud duty but has returned to racing, Kevin believes, as good as ever. He is the fastest dog to go round Nottingham so far in pre-Derby trials and races and is the Star Sports ante-post favourite.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>MAGICAL BALEThis dog has been on a real journey. He was entered into last years Derby at Towcester but went out of the competition in the second round. Following that, he crossed the pond for a tilt at the Irish Derby, eventually finishing second in the final. Things haven’t been straight forward since but the dog looks great and Kevin tells us why he thinks this dog has a real chance of winning the Derby.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>JAYTEE TAYLORJaytee Taylor was a puppy star in the second half of last year at Shelbourne Park when he headed the betting for the Irish Derby after the early rounds. He’s barely raced since in anticipation of the English Derby.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>PRICELESS BLAKEPriceless Blake was most recently knocked out of the Scottish Derby semi-finals in 3rd place. A dog with nice early and a never give up attitude who will take his place in the Star Sports Derby.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>BOYLESPORTS XTRAWhat a stunning looking greyhound! Meet Bob. A dog who can ping the boxes like he is on elastic, as he showed at Shawfield in the Scottish Derby.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>PANTHERPanther is a huge, strong greyhound who has already caught the eye of a few after his trial at Nottingham last week. He didn’t handle the first two bends perfectly and you would think he will improve on his next look around.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>JAYTEE JERRYAn October 2016 dog who still needs to mature a little. If he can do that and the Hennessy’s can keep him sound in the coming weeks, there is no doubting this lovely, friendly dog’s ability and potential.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>DREAMING AGAIN: THE ENGLISH DERBYSusan tells us what it’s like to win an English Derby, why they want more and their best chance of winning a second English Derby this year.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>LENSON WHELAN (name change TULLIG FOOTPAD)A March 2017 dog who is the first of the two new recruits from Pat Buckley’s kennel. Patrick tells us about the dogs temperament and why he thinks he can get better and better as the competition goes on.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>BOCKOS RORYBockos Rory is a VERY young dog, just August 2017, but he will take his place in the Star Sports Greyhound Derby. Patrick believes he is progressive enough and whilst he may be learning on the job, the ability and potential is there. He’s also a ready-made pet with an unusual tail!<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>SEAGLASS TIGERLaid-back by nature, Seaglass Tiger is extremely versatile… and fast! Patrick is hoping his early and middle pace can help him go deep into the Star Sports Derby. He’s already proven in competitions and another youngster that will be improving.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>SEAGLASS PHANTOMAt the moment, this is Patrick’s number one pick for the Star Sports Derby. Here he compares him to other top class dogs in the country and tells us why he is so impressed by the dog he calls ‘the fastest he has trained.’<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>DESPERADO DANThe dog known as ‘Des’ in the kennel won the Coronation Cup over 575m at Romford. This is a staying type of dog with track craft and a great strike rate who Patrick thinks could keep qualifying.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>DROOPYS BIKERThe second dog of a recent intake from Pat Buckley. He went out of the Star Sports Derby in the third round last year – can he go further this year?

Known as ‘Dave’, Goldies Ginola is still only an April 2017 but may well be part of Patrick’s team depending how he trials.

Peter tells us why he expects this dog to improve through the Star Sports Derby. Only time will tell how far he can go.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>JAZZ BEATJazz Beat is a well bred son of Zero Ten and Volcano. He has had his share of injury problems which means he is lightly raced but he’s now fit, well and raring to go to Nottingham.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>DA HEAD HUNTERDa Head Hunter has a different sort of profile to many of Peter’s others dog in that he is a second season dog. He ran in last years Star Sports Derby at Towcester, winning in the first round before a second round exit. Now at three and a half years of age, he is still lightly raced and will take his place in his second English Derby.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>COOLAVANNY ABOUTA March 2017 dog who has only had 6 races – and won half of them. Now on the comeback from injury, Peter tells us why he thinks this is a dog that will keep improving and also why detecting and fixing niggles is so important to him.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>CROSSFIELD CONCrossfield Con is clearly a dog that Peter likes a lot and it’s easy to see why. The dog has never been out of the first two in his 6 races so far. His seventh race will be in the first round of the Star Sports Derby at Nottingham where Peter tells us why he could be a dark horse for the competition.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>BADMINTON JETBadminton Jet was trained by Matt Dartnall during the Puppy Derby at Monmore where he picked up an injury. He was sent to Peter to race in the Con Kirby at Limerick but injury stopped him being entered.

An exceptionally fast dog that has been plagued by an injury that threatened to end his career. But now he is back racing, Mark gives us his assessment of the dog’s current form.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>ANTIGUA ROMEORomeo is the dog with the BIG character and a tail that wags so much he has injured it many times! To the eye, he is starting to look like the real deal and as Mark explains, he is expecting plenty more over the coming weeks.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>ALIEN SEAKnown as Merlin in the kennel, this dog came over from Ireland with a big reputation. He turned 2 in April and has had very little racing so is one we can expect to see improving as the competition progresses.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>ANTIGUA SANDS and ANTIGUA VOWThese two girls have big futures ahead of them and although Mark thinks it’s a big ask for a bitch to win a Derby, this pair could be in the reckoning for bitch to go the furthest in the competition.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>NOELLES PHELPSOHere David tells us why he thinks Noelles Phelpso has the attributes that will be required for the Greyhound Derby at Nottingham.

David doesn’t have much time to get him ready for the Derby but there is no doubt the dog can run!<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>LIGHTFOOT KINGLightfoot King has been an unlucky dog when it comes to big finals. Now, as a December 2015 dog, he is as good as ever, lightly raced and has plenty of ability as we head towards to first round of the Star Sports Greyhound Derby.

Rice launches Center for Quantum Materials

first_imgAddThis Share1David Ruth713-348-6327david@rice.eduJade Boyd713-348-6778jadeboyd@rice.eduRice launches Center for Quantum MaterialsRCQM will immerse global visitors in cross-disciplinary researchHOUSTON — (Sept. 30, 2014) — Rice University today launched the Rice Center for Quantum Materials (RCQM), a multidisciplinary effort to solidify Rice’s leadership in the exploration of high-temperature superconductors and other exotic materials both by attracting top faculty and students and by inviting the world’s leading experts to Rice to collaborate on research.The Rice Center for Quantum Materials is a multidisciplinary effort to solidify Rice University’s leadership in the exploration of high-temperature superconductors and other exotic materials.“Materials research is a major strength at Rice University,” said Provost George McLendon. “The Rice Center for Quantum Materials will propel us to pre-eminence in this key area of research at the intersection of materials science, physics and chemistry.”Quantum materials are substances that take on exotic physical properties due to strong interactions of billions upon billions of subatomic particles. High-temperature superconductivity, the best-known of these properties, occurs when electrons form pairs and flow without resistance. But quantum materials also can exhibit other, equally strange properties: electrons that appear to be thousands of times more massive than they should; electrons that split apart and behave as several independent “quasiparticles;” and colossal magnetic responses that could be the foundation of a new form of information technology.Center director Qimiao Si, Rice’s Harry C. and Olga K. Wiess Professor of Physics and Astronomy, said Rice is making a substantial investment to bring many of the world’s leading experts in quantum materials to campus. The center will foster fundamental research at Rice and it will incubate new collaborations by organizing conferences and workshops, hosting distinguished visitors, attracting top faculty and postdoctoral fellows and developing international and domestic partnerships.Qimiao Si“The center will address some of today’s most intriguing and important areas of physics by leveraging more than 20 Rice research groups that are already studying quantum materials, both from an experimental and theoretical perspective,” Si said.Registration opened today for the center’s inaugural conference December 15-16. Si said the meeting is expected to draw about 80 participants, including distinguished quantum materials researchers from the U.S. and abroad. He said the scientific program will include both technical sessions and a panel discussion about the current state of quantum materials research worldwide.“Some of the phenomena in this field have stymied physicists for decades, but enormous progress — both experimental and theoretical — has been made in recent years,” Si said. “There is a growing expectation that major breakthroughs are on the horizon, and that is driving competition for top talent. Institutions across Asia, Europe and North America are investing heavily in quantum materials expertise.“Rice is well-positioned to lead in this area,” Si said. “First, the university has an intimacy that makes cross-disciplinary research the norm rather than the exception. Collaboration comes naturally here. We are small enough that almost everyone on campus can be on a first-name basis, and we have always used that to our advantage.The Rice Center for Quantum Materials sprang from a grassroots effort by Rice University faculty to work more closely together and to build international collaborations.“But in the area of quantum materials, we also have numbers,” Si said. “We woke up one day and said, ‘Wow. We’re big.’ That’s unusual for Rice, and it presents us with an opportunity to capitalize on our broad expertise in this field and on our unique collaborative culture.”Rice already has leading research programs in areas like materials synthesis, quantum criticality, ultracold atomic physics, non-equilibrium dynamics, nanoscale physics and functional materials for energy applications. Si said RCQM sprang from a grassroots effort by Rice faculty in these areas to work more closely to build international collaborations that could spur breakthroughs.“Rice’s leadership realized that we have the right combination of interdisciplinary partnerships and in-depth expertise to really make a difference,” said Yousif Shamoo, vice provost for research. “This is an incredibly exciting time to be a quantum materials researcher, and RCQM positions Rice to do great things over the next few years.”RCQM is jointly supported by Rice’s offices of the Provost and Vice Provost for Research, the Wiess School of Natural Sciences, the Brown School of Engineering, the Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology and the departments of Physics and Astronomy, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Materials Science and NanoEngineering.-30-High-resolution IMAGES are available for download at:http://news.rice.edu/files/2014/09/0929-RCQM-purple1-lg.jpgCAPTION: The Rice Center for Quantum Materials is a multidisciplinary effort to solidify Rice University’s leadership in the exploration of high-temperature superconductors and other exotic materials.CREDIT: Rice Universityhttp://news.rice.edu/files/2014/09/0929_RCQM-Si1-lg.jpgCAPTION: Qimiao SiCREDIT: Jeff Fitlow/Rice Universityhttp://news.rice.edu/files/2014/09/0929_RCQM-red-lg.jpgCAPTION: The Rice Center for Quantum Materials sprang from a grassroots effort by Rice University faculty to work more closely together and to build international collaborations.CREDIT: Rice UniversityFor additional information, visit:RCQM homepagehttp://rcqm.rice.eduRecent quantum materials news from Rice:Rice physicist emerges as leader in quantum materials researchhttp://news.rice.edu/2014/08/20/rice-physicist-emerges-as-leader-in-quantum-materials-research-2/Moore quantum materials: Recipe for serendipityhttp://news.rice.edu/2014/08/12/moore-quantum-materials-recipe-for-serendipity-2/Study finds physical link to strange electronic behaviorhttp://news.rice.edu/2014/07/31/study-finds-physical-link-to-strange-electronic-behavior/Quantum criticality observed in new class of materialshttp://news.rice.edu/2014/06/04/quantum-criticality-observed-in-new-class-of-materials-2/Located on a 300-acre forested campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report.

first_imgShare1NEWS RELEASEDavid Ruth713-348-6327david@rice.eduRenovation to Rice track and field, cross-country and soccer facility completedHOUSTON – (Feb. 24, 2016) – Renovation of Rice University’s Wendel D. Ley Track has been completed. The $2.2 million project replaced the grandstand and added a new enclosed press box. The project also included a newly built 3,250-square-foot building for the soccer and men’s and women’s track and field and cross-country teams.“This upgrade has been something our track and soccer programs have needed for some time, and we are grateful for the support the university has provided to bring the project to fruition,” said Joe Karlgaard, Rice’s director of athletics. “It is a terrific step forward in the quest to address the facilities needs for these programs.”Each of the teams will have its own meeting space in the new air-conditioned facility, along with space for student-athletes to store their belongings, a weight room and restrooms.“I’m really thankful for this progress being made,” said soccer head coach Nicky Adams. “A place to call their own is important for any team sport. The day that they (soccer student-athletes) were able to move into that facility, we saw a lot of wide eyes and big smiles. It did mean a lot for the university to back us up with this project.”For soccer events, the facility will be referred to as Holloway Field at Wendel D. Ley Track.The grandstand will now have assigned seating for more than 1,100 spectators, including 112-premium chair-back seats and new public restrooms. It includes a new press box, consisting of four booths and three filming platforms and a new sound system. The previous grandstand was built in 1966 on the site of Rice’s original football stadium. The new grandstand was designed by Jackson & Ryan Architects, the firm that also oversaw the renovation of Rice baseball’s Reckling Park.Entering his 30th season at Rice as cross-country and women’s track and field coach, Jim Bevan said the renovation is a big improvement.“This new facility does volumes better for us,” Bevan said. “It does volumes for us in the way it looks and it helps us in recruiting; it shows we’re changing with the times and moving forward.”Men’s track and field head coach Jon Warren has been on campus since 1983, first as a student, then a volunteer coach and now head coach. He said entering the new facility is akin to walking into a new house.“Since I’ve been here, the only change in the facility is when they added soccer in 2001, and that’s when we moved the field events outside of track,” Warren said. “In my opinion, this is the biggest change to the facility since football moved out in 1950.“Before the renovation, it was like an old house that had some issues,” he said. “Now, it’s just wonderful; it’s going to have a big impact on our kids and on our fans. It’s almost like a rebuilt house. It’s not a bigger house, but it’s a much better house.”Robert H. Allen, the late son-in-law of Wendel D. Ley, made a $200,000 contribution toward the renovation through his estate in memory of Ley. The university funded the rest of the project.Over the recent years, Rice has made significant investments in improving the infrastructure for students and student-athletes alike. Rice has renovated its multipurpose arena, Tudor Fieldhouse; constructed the award-winning Barbara and David Gibbs Recreation and Wellness Center, which replaced Rice’s 1950-era rec center; and opened the new George R. Brown Tennis Center. Construction of the Brian Patterson Sports Performance Center in the north end zone of Rice Stadium is slated to be completed in time for this year’s football events.For more information, contact David Ruth, director of national and broadcast media at Rice, at david@rice.edu or 713-348-6327.-30-This media advisory can be found online at http://news.rice.edu.Follow Rice News and Media Relations via Twitter @RiceUNews.Located on a 300-acre forested campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report.
