Valkenswaard United Unbeatable in 2021 GCL Opener in Doha

first_imgValkenswaard United seized the GCL ranking lead in spectacular style in Doha today with unbeatable performances by the team’s top guns in the opener of the 2021 championship race.Heavyweights Peder Fredricson and Marcus Ehning took full advantage of the extraordinary horsepower of Hansson WL and Stargold with flawless rounds to seal the coveted first win of the season.A delighted Marcus Ehning said “It’s always great to be here in Doha. I think I can talk for everyone to say it is a very special event. Peder made my life easier he jumped a fantastic clear round, I know my horse is fast but you also need some luck. I am really lucky to be in a strong team like this. We have 6 very strong riders and I am very lucky to ride with them.”Peder Fredricson explained after his round: “It’s really amazing to be back jumping at top level sport again. It is fantastic to ride with Marcus and I am really looking forward to the rest of the season!”Fans around the world lapped up the welcome return to GCL action and the highest level of team show jumping. The first leg left no doubt that this year’s GCL championship will be a titanic fight for dominance as team owners, managers, riders and trainers set their sights on victory and fantastic prize money.As the sun started to set across Qatar’s capital city Doha, the stunning Longines Arena at Al Shaqab lit up as 15 teams came forward to battle it out for the first time in the 2021 season. Unliano Vezzani’s challenging course saw only two teams manage to jump double clear with the competition full of shock results and cracks under pressure with dramatic changes up and down the gird.Here’s how the competition unfolded:Paris PanthersFirst of the competition to go Gregory Wathelet knew that only a faultless round would do for the Panthers. Nevados S was looking fresh and skipped his way around the huge sand arena opening up to the last fence and producing the all-important clear. Handing over to Penelope Leprevost and the athletic stallion Vancouver de Lanlore they also made it look easy and the team stayed on the same 12 faults carried forward from round 1 in a time of 148.73s.Hamburg GiantsSuus Kuyten was delighted with her round with Alfa Jordan despite 6 faults. Experienced Dutch rider Bart Bles set off at a pace with Kriskras DV, but it all came apart as they picked up two early faults seeing the team tumble down the leaderboard ending today on 22 faults overall and at the bottom of the leaderboard.Prague LionsThe Lions pulled in Anna Kellnerova and Catch Me If You Can Old and the swap paid off as the combination flew round the 1.55m / 1.60m course clear. In excellent form, Delux T & L and Niels Bruynseels secured the second clear helping the Lions finish on 8 faults and 7th place overall.London KnightsWinners here 12 months ago the Knights pulled in Lorenzo De Luca and Nuance Bleue VDM Z but they couldn’t keep all the fences up as the GCL upright coming out of the double fell piling the pressure on teammate Olivier Philippaerts and H&M Legend of Love. But there was disappointment as the pair also picked up four faults leaving the team on a total of 16 overall.Scandinavian VikingsTeam owner Geir Gulliksen and VDL Groep Quatro took centre stage as the sun began to set across the arena. A rattle at the GC Prague Playoffs upright and the penultimate fence put the team out of contention for a podium today. Henrik von Eckermann and King Edward looked determined as they set off at a pace and took a stride out to the final fence clearing it with ease slotting the team in 10th place.Monaco AcesThe Monaco Aces kept everything exactly the same as round 1 not making any rider or horse changes. U25 rider Jeanne Sadran and Vannan got deep into a fence early on knocking a pole and piling the pressure on teammate Jos Verlooy. Jos and Varoune knew a fast clear would keep them in contention for a podium place and they finished 5th overall.Miami CelticsA new face on the GCL team this year young Polish rider Andrzej Oplatek and Stakkatan also got caught out by the GCL upright and the wide GC oxer then fell as well immediately dropping the Celtics down the order. Maurice Tebbel had his hands full with a fresh Don Diarado. His tight roll back to the penultimate fence didn’t pay off as it fell and the team finished with 12 faults.Doha FalconsA fast four for Titouan Schumacher with Atome Z and a clear from Constant van Paesschen riding Isidoor van de Helle put the home team on a score of 8 overall. Constant clearly had the team strategy and tactics in mind, riding a speedy round to help them slot into 6th place.Madrid In MotionPrevious GCL Super Cup winners Madrid In Motion knew they had a good opportunity to start the season on a high and kept their team exactly the same as last year. Eduardo Alvarez Aznar shook his head as he exited the arena on Rokfeller de Pleville Bois Margot, the team now on 8 faults leaving the door open for other teams to take the read more

Details emerge of George Osborne’s Isis editorship

first_imgThe article was amended on 22/03/17. It had stated: “According to the University’s SOLO library system, all remaining copies of the Trinity 1992 magazine, which are archived in the Oxford Union library, have been “reported missing” – Osborne’s year is the only to have been lost.” However, the Bodleian Libraries never received a copy of this edition of Isis (Trinity term 1992). George Osborne, who was announced yesterday as the editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper, had his most recent editing experience producing a “hemp edition” of the Oxford magazine the Isis.According to the University’s SOLO library system, the copy of the Trinity 1992 magazine, which is archived in the Oxford Union library, has been “reported missing”.https://twitter.com/jimwaterson/status/842728279614414849However, a surviving copy has since been unearthed.The former chancellor, who studied History at Magdalen between 1990 and 1993, edited the Isis in 1992, producing the first-ever “hemp edition” of the magazine. The front cover displayed two large cannabis leaves with the words “read it and reap”. It was completed with a “government health warning” not to smoke it.Osborne’s editorial, Trinity 1992. Credit: BuzzFeedThe magazine’s editorial claims “For the first time in the history of the magazine, The ISIS has been printed on hemp paper.” This, however, turned out to be two pages in the middle of one Trinity term edition of the magazine.Osborne co-edited the magazine alongside fellow Bullingdon Club member Chris Coleridge. The features editors of the same edition included Jo Johnson, the current Universities Minister and brother of Boris.In the edition, Osborne wrote an essay investigating “the secret world of Britain’s security services”.“MI5 can decide to tap your telephone, open your mail, record intimate details of your private life in its computers (which have the capacity to hold 20 million files), and even scupper your prospects of ever being employed by a major company, if, in its judgement, you might constitute a threat to that wonderfully nebulous concept of our ‘national security’,” he wrote.Credit: BuzzFeedHe lamented the apparent public apathy about being “under the watchful eyes of Big Brother.”After leaving Oxford, Osborne was rejected from graduate journalism schemes at the Times and the Economist.The Isis, which was first established in 1892, is the sister publication to Cherwell, and is published under the same publishing house, Oxford Student Publications limited.Osborne will take up his position at the Evening Standard in May.last_img

Indiana University fighting the spread of disinformation

NY Heroin Law Deal Scorecard: What Passed, What Didn’t

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Less than half of the 23 bills that a New York State heroin task force proposed two weeks ago passed the state legislature before lawmakers went on summer break last week.The 11 bills that passed in a much-anticipated legislative package deal mostly deal with treatment and prevention of heroin and prescription painkiller abuse, while only some bills that would have enacted harsher penalties in drug crimes made the cut.“Government doesn’t really solve problems like this,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed the bills into law Monday. “These problems get solved when everybody takes responsibility towards the issue.”The legislation aimed at combating the statewide heroin epidemic that has gripped Long Island for years followed the task force’s 18 public hearings in nine weeks this spring, busloads of anti-drug advocates lobbying Albany and a steady stream of major drug busts in the state—home to a third of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s heroin seizures nationwide last year.Read More: How Long Island is Losing its War on HeroinAmong the most notable new laws requires insurers to cover substance-abuse treatment based on decisions made by medical professionals and requires insurance companies use the same criteria as rehabilitation providers.“We made a lot of comments on the language of the bill and we brought families up to Albany to advocate for this,” said Jeffrey Reynolds, executive director of the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. “We’re trying to curb what we’ve seen, which is insurers trying to create barriers to treatment.”Other new laws were also aimed at increasing the availability of rehab. One directed the state Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) to create a relapse prevention program to provide case management and referral services for people who successfully complete treatment. The state health department will also develop a new model of services for those in recovery with the goal of reducing reliance on emergency room services.Another law will allow parents to have drug-abusing children assessed by an OASAS-certified provider through the Person in Need of Supervision (PINS) program. A similar task force proposal that was not included in the final package would have also allowed courts to require a PINS child to undergo treatment. The measure is aimed at helping abusers who are over the age of 18 who refuse parents’ attempts to get them treatment.Other failed bills would have directed OASAS and the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to look into converting closed correctional facilities into rehab facilities.Among those that passed were new laws expanding the use of naloxone, an opioid-overdose antidote known by its brand name, Narcan, which has been credited with saving countless people from fatally overdosing.One of the new laws require naloxone kits to include instructions on how to administer the drug, how to identify an overdose and where to find treatment services. Another allows health care professionals and pharmacists greater flexibility in prescribing Narcan, ensuring it’s more readily available. On the other hand, a bill that would have allowed schools administer naloxone was not signed into law.Other new laws add drug prevention information to junior and high school health class curricula and a public awareness program by the OASAS and the state health department.Among the rejected bills was one that would have put guidelines for prescription drug take-back events on the OASAS website and another that would have created standards for a continuing medical education program for drug prescribers. Another bill that didn’t pass would have limited prescriptions of controlled substances to patients suffering from acute pain.“We in the Senate agreed that that prevention and treatment was most important,” said state Sen. Phil Boyle (R-Bay Shore), the chairman of the Senate’s heroin task force. “But we realize that there need to be criminal penalties.”Most of the bills that were cut from the deal between Cuomo and the Senate were designed to tighten up law enforcement of drug-related crimes, although some still made it through.The failed bills would have classified the transportation or sale of an opioid that causes a death as homicide, the theft of a blank prescription form as grand larceny and the sale of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a drug treatment center as a B felony.One bill that was sponsored by Boyle would have made harsher penalties for transporting an opioid more than five miles within New York or between counties. Boyle said that he was disappointed that the bill failed.“Opioid drug dealers come out of New York City, Long Island and all over upstate,” he said. “You can get heroin bags pretty cheap in the city but once you get up to Plattsburgh, read more
