LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In quotes – losers Wales captain, Sam Warburton: “That’s the worst defeat I’ve ever been involved with. To be in control really for the majority of the second half and in the last play of the game we slip up. It’s really hard to take.”Top stats Wales made 112 tackles, missing 15, a success rate of 88.2%. Australia made 81 tackles, missing seven, a success rate of 92%. Australia carried 470 metres with the ball compared to Wales’ 293. Alex Cuthbert was Wales’ top carrier with 86 metres, followed closely by Leigh Halfpenny with 82 metres. Jamie Roberts was their top tackler with 17.Match highlightsWales: Halfpenny; Cuthbert, Davies, Roberts, Williams; Priestland, Phillips; Jenkins, Rees (Owens 66), Andrews, Reed, Charteris (R Jones ht), Shingler, Warburton (c), Faletau (Tipuric 66).Pens: Halfpenny 4.Australia: Barnes; Cummins (Ioane 48), Ashley-Cooper, Tapuai (Harris 59), Mitchell; Beale, Phipps; Robinson (Slipper 61), Nau (Moore ht), Alexander (Kepu 67), Douglas (Hooper 52), Sharpe, Higginbotham (Dennis 16), Pocock, Palu. Try: Beale Pens: Beale 3.Referee: Wayne Barnes (Eng). Late flourish: Kurtley Beale scores the last-minute try that secured the Wallabies another win against WalesBy Owain Jones, Rugby World EditorIn a nutshellThis game was the horror movie version of Groundhog Day for Wales, who put in their best performance of a hugely disappointing autumn series only to finish bereft after losing narrowly to Australia for a seventh time in 13 months. The game was no spectacle of running rugby – in truth it was more of a kicking duel – but no one could say the game was meaningless. Australia were playing for their retiring lock colossus Nathan Sharpe and Wales for pride and a place in the second tier of the World Cup draw. Neither side were able to pull away from one another until the fateful 79th minute, when Kurtley Beale broke Welsh hearts with a killer try.Making ground: Jamie RobertsKey moment Not too difficult to pinpoint. There were just 28 seconds left on the clock, with Wales leading 12-9, when Kurtley Beale was released to scamper over in the corner to render a near 60,000 crowd speechless. Credit must go to the Wallabies, they’d kept plugging away, all too aware of their previous last-minute successes. Nick Phipps fed Berrick Barnes, who put out a cross-field pass to Mike Harris, who in turn outpaced an exhausted Lou Reed. Harris fed Dave Dennis down the touchline and when Dennis flung the ball back to the supporting Beale, it was all over for Wales, again.Star manIf there was one man who didn’t deserve to be on the losing side, it was Leigh Halfpenny. What he lacks in height and bulk, he more than makes up for in courage and derring-do. Rock-solid under the high ball, explosive on the counter-attack and, like all great full-backs, brave without due regard for his body – he was taken to hospital at the end after putting in a brave tackle on Dave Dennis. Halfpenny is also an 80% Test kicker and barring injury, is certain to be facing the Wallabies again in the summer with the Lions.Room for improvement Wales are now fit enough to go toe-to-toe with the world’s best sides, a quality they haven’t always been able boast, yet over the last 13 months they have continually been unable to close out tight games against southern hemisphere rivals. A solution has to be found to Wales’ loss of composure at crucial times. With Warren Gatland now committed to Lions duty, Rob Howley has a job to rebuild Wales’ shattered psyche as much as their battered bodies.Fitting finale: retiring lock Nathan SharpeIn quotes – winners Australia head coach Robbie Deans: “It was a great game as all of our encounters with Wales have been this year. Credit to the lads for even being in the game at the end, they have had a huge year and that was a fast and physical game so to be in the game, but to get up to win it was even better NOT FOR FEATURED

WhatsApp Email Twitter Print NewsHealthUHL tops monthly trolley countBy Bernie English – June 9, 2019 153 Linkedin Advertisement Facebook University Hospital LimerickUNIVERSITY Hospital Limerick once again topped the league for the number of patients who had to wait on trolleys for a hospital bed.The Irish Midwives and Nurses Organisation relayed figures for the month of May, which show that 1,102 patients had to wait in the Emergency Department after being admitted to the hospital.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cork University Hospital had the second highest figures at 824.9,015 admitted patients were forced to wait without hospital beds in May 2019 according to the new monthly analysis.This is a 114 per cent increase on May 2006, when figures began to be recorded. University Hospital Limerick and South Tipperary General Hospital recorded their worst May ever for overcrowding. Among the 9,015 patients were 78 children.In a statement, UL Hospitals Group said it would like to “sincerely apologise to our patients who have had to wait for an extended period in our Emergency Department (ED) in the month of May and any distress or inconvenience this caused to patients and their loved ones.“When a patient attends the ED, they are triaged and observations recorded by nursing staff. Patients continue to be cared for by nursing staff whilst awaiting medical/surgical intervention. Once the decision is made to admit a patient, relevant documentation and interventions are completed by nursing staff while awaiting an inpatient bed.To avoid all patients who require admission waiting in ED, we move two patients on trolleys to the inpatient wards for an available bed following discharges. This allows us to provide additional comfort, privacy screens and locate patients in quieter areas on the wards while they wait for a bed. These patients are included in the overall trolley figures.On a daily basis, we make every effort to minimise the number of patients who wait on trolleys in the ED and we continue to do so.We actively encourage people with minor injuries to attend the Injury Units in Ennis, Nenagh and St. John’s hospitals. It is important that we keep the ED for emergencies only and we urge the public to do so. Injury Units treat broken bones, dislocations sprains strains, wounds, scalds and minor burns and save long waiting times.“We also recommend that people consider attending their GP or the out of hours GP service. Their GP can refer them to a Medical Assessment Unit the following day if required.”The Emergency Department at University Hospital Limerick is one of the busiest in the country and the numbers presenting continues to increase year on year.Attendances to the end of December 2018 were 71,823 – an increase of 6.2 per cent on 2017.“Overcrowding and understaffing mean patients take longer to recover. That means worse care, higher costs, and greater risk of infection. Investment in beds and safe staffing is key to resolving this ongoing crisis.” Previous articleHundreds of children losing care places in LimerickNext articleLimerick hammer Banner to take huge step toward Munster progression Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

A third of dotcoms were forced to cut staff over the past year, according toresearch by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The study also reveals that a quarter of dotcom chief executives now rateexperience as the most important quality for staff. The 2001 PwC findings contrast sharply with last year’s, which revealed thateight out of 10 dotcom CEOs thought the race for talent was their mostimportant challenge. Kevin Delaney, a partner at PwC Human Resource Consulting, said dotcoms arein danger of losing the spirit of adventure and dynamism which was responsiblefor their initial success. “We are witnessing a growing bunker mentality that has led to a driveto recruit more experienced managers. This focus on survival placesprofitability and the bottom line above creativity and risk-taking,” hesaid. Delaney advises HR professionals in dotcoms to ensure their companies do notlose the excitement and energy that attracted talented people to them. He also recommends HR departments find the balance between experience andthe willingness to work in new ways among the people they recruit and that theyidentify those employees who have the ability to take the company forward. Over 400 dotcom managers were surveyed for the report. www.pricewaterhousecoopers.com Related posts:No related photos.

Although it will probably never be as complete as that known from any of the other continents, the Antarctic fossil record comprises a surprising amount of information. Originally gathered primarily for stratigraphical purposes, much of this is now amenable to biogeographical synthesis. In theory there are a number of ways in which this can be achieved, but one of the most important, and exciting, lies in the study of taxonomic diversity gradients. Polar-equatorial gradients, in particular, hold one of the keys to elucidating the origin and maintenance of large scale biodiversity patterns. Latitudinal gradients in species richness in the Southern Hemisphere are not necessarily a mirror-image of those seen in the north. There is growing evidence to suggest that the Southern Ocean is a repository of considerable taxonomic diversity, especially for epifaunal marine invertebrate taxa which have adapted to coarse-grained, glacial substrates. Living Antarctic gastropods, for example, comprise a surprisingly diverse group and there is evidence from the fossil record that they are the product of a substantial historical legacy. We still have a lot to learn about the nature of taxonomic diversity gradients in the fossil record. Nevertheless, a picture is beginning to emerge of comparatively steep latitudinal gradients for both bivalves and gastropods in the latest Jurassic (Tithonian). If this is substantiated through the Cretaceous, it would seem to provide striking evidence of steep gradients on a pre-glacial Earth. To some this will be taken as confirmation of the fact that gradients are a time-invariant feature of the Earth’ s surface; a direct consequence of the tropics comprising by far the largest natural region (or biome). However, care must always be exercised in attributing simple patterns to simple processes, and other factors may well be involved. Studies based on the fossil record have not yet been able to show that there have been either enhanced rates of speciation in the tropics or extinction towards the poles. This fact alone suggests that something else besides area must be involved in the generation of large scale biodiversity patterns. Time is an obvious candidate here, but it should be stressed that this is very much on a geological timescale of tens or even hundreds of millions of years. Rather than concentrate on intrinsic properties of organisms which may have enabled them to proliferate in the tropics or limited their success at the poles, it may be that more attention should be paid to the role of extrinsic factors. Of prime importance among these may well have been serial range expansions and contractions in concert with repeated climatic change.
