Williams was suspended for four weeks for a charge on Lions wing Anthony Watson – it was hoped he would be able to serve the ban before the Rugby Championship.RNZI reports World Rugby has confirmed the suspension is for four matches.Since a hearing on July 2nd, World Rugby says the disciplinary committee had been receiving and reviewing additional submissions and evidence from the player’s side relating to his upcoming schedule of matches.”The player had admitted that he committed an act of foul play contrary to Law 10.4 (g) which deals with dangerous charging, and he received the suspension of four weeks, equating to four meaningful matches as considered by the judicial committee,” the committee said in a statement.Following due consideration, the disciplinary committee has ruled that Williams’ suspension will extend up to and including 19 August, which is the day of the first game against Australia.Williams will therefore be available for the second game against Australia in Dunedin on August 26th.
As soon as Liverpool went 3-0 down against Arsenal the jokes were going to fly.Three goals in eight minutes from Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez saw the Gunners go in at the break very comfortably, with Olivier Giroud making it 4-1 at the end after Jordan Henderson had grabbed a consolation from the penalty spot.The Gunners’ victory moves them into second place, above Man City, who play Crystal Palace on Monday, and during this rout, Liverpool’s defence came in for particularly heavy criticism. 1 Funniest reaction to Arsenal’s thrashing of Liverpool
Starting next summer, Los Angeles apartment dwellers will have the opportunity to sort paper, plastic and glass recyclables at home under a plan finalized Tuesday by the City Council. Recycling pickup for multifamily buildings will initially be voluntary, but Bureau of Sanitation officials gave trash haulers a warning: If the city doesn’t get enough participation after seven years, it could become mandatory. “This is a very good proposal for (the) city of Los Angeles to take the next giant leap in recycling,” said Councilman Greig Smith, whose RENEW LA plan outlines a 20-year blueprint to handle the city’s trash. Multifamily buildings generate 550,000 tons of waste per year, about 10 percent of the city’s total.

The city will place blue recycling bins at participating buildings. Collection should start by mid-2007 and be implemented citywide a year later, said Neil Guglielmo of the Bureau of Sanitation. “We’re trying to make it as convenient as possible,” he said. The city tested free recycling at apartments beginning in 2004, and signed up 64,000 units. Some buildings in the program are recycling up to 40 percent. Approximately 750,000 single-family homes and and small apartment complexes now have curbside recycling provided by the city’s Bureau of Sanitation. Roughly 540,000 apartment units and condos hire private haulers and rarely pay the extra money for recycling services. Officials estimate that the program will cost the city $6 million to $10 million, depending on the hauler bids and the number of units signed up for the service. The funding will come from permit fees paid by private waste haulers operating in the city. firstname.lastname@example.org (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1 Chinese investors are reportedly interested in Newcastle United Newcastle owner Mike Ashley could be ready to listen to genuine offers for the club amid interest from China.Reports on Monday suggested there has been fresh interest in United, who won promotion back to the Premier League at the end of last season, from Asia.The Magpies were not commenting on the matter, but there was no outright dismissal from sources on Tyneside either, which there has been in the past.It is not the first time a potential buyer has expressed an interest in the club, bought by Ashley for £134.4million in April 2007.However, no acceptable offer has ever been received and the Sports Direct tycoon has remained at the helm, much to the annoyance of his most vociferous critics.While he has not actively been looking for a buyer in recent years, he has always been open to an offer he could not refuse.Having regained top-flight for the second time in Ashley’s tenure, Newcastle represents an attractive proposition once again, although it remains to be seen whether or not anyone puts the required cash on the table, and if he is indeed prepared to do business.The sportswear magnate has already promised manager Rafael Benitez “every last penny that the club generates” from promotion, player sales and other income in the wake of promotion, and the Spaniard and chief executive Lee Charnley are currently working on his summer transfer wish-list.
PALMDALE – Highland High’s wrestling team is hoping a new look brings familiar results. For the first time in years, the Bulldogs have no returning Southern Section medalists and just one defending league champion. Expectations nonetheless remain high for a program that has won Golden League titles 12 of the past 13 years, including the last three. “Normally, we do have more returnees, but I think we’re going to be just as good this year,” said senior Josh Purpose, the league’s defending 125-pound champion. “Knowing that we’re missing so many people, we need to step it up this year.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Purpose is among a group of talented wrestlers longtime Highland coach Michael Young believes can progress to elite status as the season progresses. Junior Ryan Gifford (152), a runner-up last season, and senior Paul Petros (130) and junior Randy Wallerstein (140), who finished third and fourth in league last season, are the most notable wrestlers with the potential make an impact. Seniors Heath Ikahihifo (189), the younger brother of former Highland standout John, and Robert Davis (215) are among those Young believes can be standouts, too. Highland hasn’t had a state qualifier since 2003. “We don’t really have any stallions,” Young said. “I think we will by the end of the year, but right now we have a lot of mules and they all pull together.” Highland’s depth will be a factor as it tries to fend off challenges from emerging league powers Littlerock, Antelope Valley, Lancaster and Quartz Hill. Littlerock, which interrupted Highland’s title run with a league championship in 2002, features Ryan Cambaliza (215) and Antelope Valley has Eric Timson (145), the league’s top two wrestlers and Southern Section medalists. Lancaster features standouts Jeff Merrill (112) and Kevin Plunkett (215). Quartz Hill is led by Jason Fonze (275) and Russell Curry (171). “I just think all the juniors and seniors need to step it up and help the freshmen and sophomores step up,” Purpose said. “If we do that, we’ll be successful.” It is an unfamiliar role for those who in years past took their cues from standouts Steve Frehn and Kyle Burnett. “They had intensity when they wrestled,” Purpose said. “We’re trying to bring what we learned from them to the new guys.” Said Gifford: “I feel like everybody looks up to us and expects to go out and win every match. They watch what we’re doing in practices. If we slack off, we know they’re going to slack off. If we’re working hard, then they’re going to work hard, too.” Gideon Rubin, (818)713-3607 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The then Sports Science student was dating one of Cllr Murray’s long lost relatives in California and had come to Donegal with her that summer.The top picture shows Will with Jack’s uncle Dom, at Dom’s home in Bundoran.Said Jack: “Our cousin came to Ireland regularly to visit relatives and on this trip she brought her boyfriend Will to Bundoran.“They were there for a week or so and met all the family who lived there.

OAKLAND – On the surface, everything about Stephen Curry looked the same.On Wednesday, Curry showed his competitive side by renewing his post-practice shooting routine with Kevin Durant. On Tuesday, Curry showed his nurturing side by including fourth-year guard Quinn Cook as well as training camp invitees Tyler Ulis and Kendrick Nunn in his post-practice workout.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Vermeer Corporation continues to expand its mower conditioner line with the addition of the MC4500 mower conditioner. Designed with productivity, flexibility and convenience in mind, the MC4500 has a 15-foot (4.5-m) cutting width to meet the needs of large volume operators.“Vermeer added a larger model to the mower conditioner line to help large volume operators cover more acres in a shorter amount of time” said Vermeer Product Manager, Josh Vrieze. “The MC4500 mower conditioner brings more size, speed, versatility and reliability to the operator in the field.”Efficiency features like a drawbar swivel hitch allow hooking up the implement to become a hassle-free, one man job. Similarly, the Quick-Clip® Blade Retention System makes replacing and reversing blades quick and convenient.Q3® Cutter Bar technology helps maximize productivity by making the mower more fuel-efficient with minimal gear-to-gear interface, requiring less horsepower than gear-bed style cutter bars. The Quick-ChangeTM Shear Ring sits within the disc hub and shears when a potentially damaging object encounters the disc to protect the internal gears and drive spline. All combined, these Q3 Cutter Bar features make maintenance and repair user-friendly.In addition to the unique cutter bar features, Vermeer mower conditioners are equipped with a nitrogen-charged accumulator suspension system to provide a consistent weight on the cutter bar throughout the full range of motion. Operators can easily customize suspension settings for their specific field conditions, resulting in less cutter bar weight on the ground and less stress on the header and framework compared to traditional mechanical spring systems.With the option of either a steel roller or v-tine conditioner on all models of mower conditioners, the operator can choose the conditioning method preferred for their operation. In addition, multiple swath adjustments give users more control over their windrow formation. The Vermeer MC-series mower conditioners offers cutting widths of 9.1 feet (2.8 m) on the MC2800, 10.5 feet (3.3 m) on the MC3300, 12 feet (3.7 m) on the MC3700 and now 15 feet (4.5 m) on the MC4500.To learn more about Vermeer Corporation, products, the dealer network and financing options, visit vermeer.com.
