NSWCIS BREAK WINNING DROUGHT

first_imgYesterday was a historic day for NSW Combined Independent Schools (NSWCIS) putting all demons to rest with the girls winning their first game ever at an 18 Years National Championship. The girls defeated South West Queensland 9-5 with Cobie Morgan and Emma Sommerlad starring with three touchdowns each. Among the players is Sally Walker, daughter of Rugby Union legend Lloyd Walker. Sally was part of the NSWCIS team last year and is thrilled with the success her team has had so far this tournament. “Our first win was really exciting, and hopefully we can just continue to improve over the next few days,” she said. Their next game against Brisbane City Cobras should be a close one with both teams losing to Queensland Secondary Schools Touch by the same margin. With the exception of one player, all the girls were part of the NSWCIS 16 years team last year and have proceeded on to the 18 years team for these National Championships. NSWCIS Convener and manager of the girls team Chris Oliver, attributes the success to the change of approach to their touch sides by NSWCIS. “In the past we’ve lost players with potential to regional sides, but we’ve been concentrating on developing our juniors and retaining those players, taking them through to the 18 years teams,” said Ms Oliver. NSWCIS has had trouble improving over the years due to touch not being played frequently in the private school system, which tends to focus on rugby and netball. Through extended training camps and developing a greater sense of team spirit, the teams are enjoying their success. The boys are also progressing in the competition having won one of their two games yesterday. By Lisa Plummerlast_img read more

Since it’s the offseason (and we have to pass the time in some way), we figured we’d show you a custom helmet recently made by the guys over at JVince Custom Lids. It’s the same design, but it instead features a black cherry base. Needless to say, it’s clean.

first_imgFor non-urgent care, use community health services including making an appointment with your family practitionerRemember, flu season is upon us; check immunizebc.ca for clinic dates.If you have a cold, call HealthLinkBC at 8-1-1 for advice, or ask your pharmacist about over-the-counter medications to ease symptoms.If you are concerned about a possible poisoning or exposure to a toxic substance, call Poison Control at 1-800-567-8911. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – After a recent request by Northern Health asking residents to only use the ER if needed has people needing clarity as to what to do then.Speaking with Eryn Collins, Communications Officer with Northern Health, she said “We absolutely recognize that the reminder put out to the community December 14th, 2018 in FSJ is used when a Hospital is experiencing a period of higher than normal patient volume. This can depend on the time of year, such as flu season, long weekends and sometimes its a mix of patients in the hospital with complex health care issues that will make the Hospital busier than usual. It is not being said the Hospital is busier because people are coming and using it inappropriately its more of a reminder,” Collins goes on to say “When there are higher than normal patient volumes there are steps the public can take to avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital because they will probably experience longer wait times for example if their condition is not urgent.”Emergency rooms are designed to be focused on tending to patients that have an emergency and urgent health care needs such as difficulty breathing, chest pains, broken bones, bleeding and suspected overdoses, situations that require attendance right away. The NH wants the public to know there are other options for getting advice if you truly warrant an emergency room visit. Health link BC is an online tool, as well as calling 811 anytime day or night to receive non-emergency help from registered nurses and health care professionals who can offer trusted advice on managing symptoms at home.Book appointments with family practitioners, it is known some of the public do not have a physician and it can be challenging as well if there is not an available walk-in clinic yet NH does not have a direct role in how these local primary care clinics structure their practices or the availability of their appointments. These are private physician practices although NH does work closely with family physicians recruitment of primary care providers to the community.It is important for the public to contact their local medical clinics and inquire about becoming patients or being put on a waitlist.“In the meantime, it’s about reminding people the Hospital is busier than usual and any unnecessary trips to the Hospital wait longer,” said Collins.Steps the public can take to help avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital include;People who aren’t sure whether their condition would warrant an emergency room visit, or who need health advice can call HealthLink BC (8-1-1), or visit www.HealthLinkBC.ca for non-emergency health information from nurses, dietitians, and pharmacists 24/7.For deaf and hearing-impaired assistance (TTY), call 7-1-1.last_img read more

Relics revisited: Victoria Memorial to unveil Tagore’s letters penned in 1920s

first_imgKolkata: Victoria Memorial Hall (VMH) is all set to unveil two letters penned by Rabindranath Tagore to Dilip Kumar Roy in the 1920s, to mark the occasion of the legendary bard’s 158th birth anniversary, which falls on May 9.The memorial has a large collection of various literary works of Tagore and every year, it retrieves something and brings it to public display. “These two original letters by Tagore are our ‘Objects of the Month’ for May and they will be put on display at the Prince Hall of Victoria Memorial in the afternoon on May 8, for the first time ever. The two letters will be on display for three weeks,” said Jayanta Sengupta, curator and secretary of VMH. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaDilip Kumar Roy, son of playwright Dwijendralal Roy, was an eminent Bengali musician, musicologist, novelist, poet and essayist. Tagore and Roy shared many stimulating conversations and exchanged many letters, most of them on music and literature. The two letters that will be put on display are the one written on April 3, 1924, which is a warm invitation to Roy to have more conversations with him and another written in verse in a humorous style on January 18, 1928, saying how much the poet misses his company. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayThe VMH will also hold an illustrated lecture titled ‘New Vistas into Tagorean Theatre’ by Ananda Lal, eminent theatre critic and former Professor of English, Jadavpur University, in the conference hall on May 8. “The world of Tagorean performance is the most under-researched in his huge corpus of work. The Abanindranath Tagore and Gaganendranath Tagore paintings of his theatre art in the Rabindra Bharati Society collection, presently under the care of VMH, are largely unfamiliar to the public and provide many important glimpses into their stage creativity. The lecture will highlight a representative sample of them,” Sengupta added. The talk will also discuss Lal’s recent study of non-Bengali political productions of Tagore, which has unearthed a few unknown but significant interpretations, from the world premiere of Red Oleanders in 1928 to Muktadhara in the Narmada Valley in 1993. The VMH also has an original exercise book in its collection, with writings of Tagore during his stay at Budapest. Tagore’s writings have been popular in Hungary ever since he won the Nobel Prize in 1913 and resulted in many Hungarian poets treading the long journey to Santiniketan. Most of his books have also been translated into Hungarian.last_img read more

Ewing requested information on how much the law suit was costing the TCI and questioned the validity of any settlement with the group. This brought cautions from the governing side and the Attorney General; who said the Member from Blue Hills ought not have the information he claimed to have; it was labeled a breach in protocol because he seemed to have Cabinet minutes. In fact, AG Rhondalee Knowles informed the House Speaker that he was wrong for asking that the Government responds to the question raised by the Member from Blue Hills as the government is not under an obligation to do so. Hon Goldray Ewing, in wrapping up his question on the pelagic fish study had said if the former PNP Administration could be investigated for alleged ‘bad governance’, then so could the UK Interim Administration.
