Winton boss Harding gives £20m to green energy lab

first_img KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp HEDGE FUND star David Harding has donated £20m to Cambridge University to create a green energy research centre. Harding, reported to be the City’s highest earner, plans to give the money to his old university’s Cavendish Laboratory to fund investigation into energy-saving materials and energy storage. The university said yesterday the donation is the largest ever received in its 136-year history. The Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability will be launched next year. Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, vice chancellor at Cambridge, said: “The University is most grateful to David for this donation, which is truly exceptional both in its generosity and in its vision of translating fundamental discoveries in physics, to meet one of the most pressing needs of our generation.”Harding made his fortune as the co- founder of AHL and Winton Capital Management, and received a dividend payment of £54m last year. The Cavendish has produced a number of Nobel prizewinners, including physicist Ernest Rutherford and Francis Crick and James Watson, who discovered the DNA double helix.

Six Nations: France 20-22 Ireland

first_imgPARIS, FRANCE – MARCH 15: Brian O’Driscoll of Ireland celebrates after winning the Six Nations Championship during the RBS Six Nations match between France and Ireland at Stade de France on March 15, 2014 in Paris, France. (Photo by Julian Finney/Getty Images) By Bea Asprey in Paris The match in 30 secondsThe RBS 6 Nations ended in a fairytale fashion rarely seen in sport as Brian O’Driscoll took home the title in his last ever Test match. France came out of the blocks firing and Ireland looked nervy in patches, but three tries to two won Ireland their first title since 2009, in Joe Schmidt’s first season as coach.France – Tries: Dulin, Szarzewski. Cons: Machenaud 2. Pens: Machenaud 2. Ireland – Tries: Sexton 2, Trimble. Cons: Sexton 2. Pen: Sexton.  Try or no try? Szarzewski goes overPost-match bulletin–       Ireland won 100% of their mauls to France’s 75% though France trumped them at the ruck – 97.6% to Ireland’s 95.2%–       France made more than three times as many offloads – 16 to Ireland’s five and also conceded 16 turnovers to Ireland’s four–       Mathieu Bastareaud ran more metres than any other player – 87 – but Andrew Trimble came in just short of him with 85–       The opensides topped their teams’ tackle stats – Alexandre Lapandry made 12 and Chris Henry made 15–       Philippe Saint-André: “High level rugby can be very cruel. France played very well but of course Ireland won. In the end it’s O’Driscoll who wins and leaves town with the trophy.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img –       Saint-André also praised his young team for an improved result on last year, and says he is still very hopeful that this group can win the World Cup next year–       A satisfied Paul O’Connell said Ireland would need to address the final 20 minutes of the game at a later date, to ensure they are able to close games out with more composure–       He said: “We’ve had success in Munster and Leinster in recent years but this is where you really want to achieve as an Irishman – in the green jersey”–       Joe Schmidt: “I’ve worked with Brian for four years and he’s a man I respect immensely, and a player I really enjoy coaching. He’s been grooming a couple of guys to come in. I don’t think we’re about to fill his shoes – we’ll have to put in someone with slightly smaller feet, but hopefully they’ll grow into them”–       Schmidt confirmed that Sexton was concussed during the game, but said he was soon up and moving about, and that the support around his neck was purely precautionary–       Brian O’Driscoll: “I’m absolutely delighted. I played for one more year because I wanted to beat the All Blacks, and that didn’t happen, and I wanted to win the Six Nations. It’s 45 minutes or an hour after the game and I don’t want to take this jersey off, because I know when I do that I won’t put it on again. It would be a bit weird if I put it on at home…!”Last laugh: But who’ll replace O’Driscoll?What’s next for Ireland?Ireland will go on tour without O’Driscoll this summer, and though Ulster’s Jared Payne is widely tipped to replace him in the autumn, he will not yet be Ireland-qualified. So Robbie Henshaw should deputise – a likely long-term option.Sexton should be given the summer off after a long season in France following the Lions tour last summer, giving Ian Madigan and Paddy Jackson a chance to make their mark on the Test scene.The replacement front row need to be allowed to continue to develop, and a physical Argentina side will be the perfect testing ground for Jack McGrath, Sean Cronin and Martin Moore.last_img read more

Two journalists freed on bail, two others in separate case remain in detention

first_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders notes that Haileyesus Worku, the editor of the state-owned Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency (ERTA), and one of his reporters, Abdulsemed Mohammed, were finally released on bail of 5,000 birr (205 euros) on 22 July after being held for 15 months on charges of illegally selling state-owned news content for personal gain.The court has scheduled a hearing for 12 November to hear defence arguments. The two journalists are meanwhile banned from leaving the country.They were arrested on 26 April 2010 on charges of illegally obtaining TV news content and passing it to a foreign TV company for personal profit, causing considerable losses for ERTA and violating copyright. They could be fined and jailed if convicted. More informationReporters Without Borders has also learned that Woubeshet Taye, the deputy editor of the Amharic-language weekly Awramba Times, who was arrested on 19 June, and Reyot Alemu, a woman reporter for the Amharic-language weekly Fitih, who was arrested on 21 June, appeared last week before judges, who ordered that they remain in detention.Alemu was brought before a federal court in the utmost secrecy on 20 July without her family or her colleagues being notified of the hearing. Taye was also brought before a federal court. In both cases, a 28-day extension of their detention was ordered to allow for further police investigation.Both are accused of complicity with Ginbot 7, a US-based opposition group which parliament recently declared to be a “terrorist” organization.

This is what Christianity wants to proclaim and live,” he said.Bishop Leahy said that to mark this very special and solemn time, all churches throughout the diocese will turn on lights on Holy Saturday evening at around the same time, with the Paschal Candle lit in the Cathedral (around 8.30-9.00).Churches will remain with lights on throughout Holy Saturday night.Along with this, bells in churches throughout the diocese will ring out at 10 pm on Saturday evening.“The Easter ‘Alleluia’ can be announced even when we are shrouded in darkness and difficulties because of the Covid-19 crisis,” said Bishop Leahy.This initiative, he said, will be an ecumenical one, with Church of Ireland lights lit and bells also ringing, Bishop Leahy added.Bishop Kearon, the Church of Ireland bishop of Limerick and Killaloe said that Church of Ireland churches in the diocese would be invited to join in the lighting of churches on Holy Saturday night as a sign of our common Chrsitian witness.“The light of the good news of the Resurrection is a message to the whole world. The difficult situation we’re experiencing at this time will pass, but the Good News is for all times and for all places,” he added.The public will also be able to access a range of services both online and on community radio. All links to these can be found on the diocesan website www.limerickdiocese.org or (direct link)https://www.limerickdiocese.org/news/masses-available-online-and-on-the-radio-in-the-diocese-of-limerick/  .Online services from the Church of Ireland are listed on www.limerick.anglican.org.Said Bishop Leahy: “It’s a difficult time for us all who cherish Easter for the great celebration of hope that it is.  But the light and promise of Easter is exactly what we need now.  We must look beyond what’s shaping these difficult days and know that a much better one lies ahead. The Resurrection is our hope and light.“One thing we can say for sure is that while we have never been as distanced physically, we have the ability to be closer than ever spiritually.  More than ever we can join in prayer, celebrating the Risen Lord and the hope that this brings for us all.” he added.
