Triumphant Montpellier struggle to win popularity contest

first_img It’s hard for the French to love Montpellier. Admire them, respect them, yes, but affection? Few in France are fond of the Languedoc club who on Friday crushed Harlequins to win the European Challenge Cup. Jake White won’t care. As he said last week: “I’m not paid so that some people can be happy, I’m paid to win.”The South African coach has now banked one trophy and another could be his next month given Montpellier’s form in the Top 14. But in a country reared on the art of seduction, the French find Montpellier singularly charmless. “Cold and methodical,” was how Le Figaro newspaper described their Challenge Cup triumph, while another attributed a “cold pragmatism” to their methods.Top two: Jake White with Montpellier president Mohed Altrad. Photo: Getty ImagesIn Monday’s Midi Olympique, they called Montpellier a machine and lamented the fact that Thibault Privat, Nicolas Mas, Robins Tchale-Watchou and Francois Trinh-Duc had been omitted from the match-day squad. White was unapologetic for overlooking the Frenchmen. “The choices are difficult,” he said in the week before the final. “If I take the case of Francois Trinh-Duc, the sentimental thing would be to pick him for the match, but that’s not possible… my job is to select the best.”He’s right, of course. Rugby is a professional sport. Perhaps that’s why Montpellier won their European trophy and Racing 92 lost theirs. It’s hard to imagine White allowing an unfit fly-half to take the field – no matter who he was.Double time: Jesse Mogg scores the first of his two tries in the final: Photo: Getty ImagesBut the French cherish sentiment, and that’s why White’s Montpellier will never be clutched to the Gallic bosom in the way the all-conquering Toulouse side of a decade ago was. Even Toulon at their peak had a lovable rogue quality to them. Yes, it seemed at times that their president had more money than sense, but it was hard not to feel a certain warmth for a club that boasted such men as Jonny Wilkinson, Matt Giteau, Freddie Michalak and Bakkies Botha.Botha was one of four South Africans in the Toulon squad that beat Clermont in last season’s Champions Cup final; Montpellier fielded seven in the starting XV against Quins, prompting Midi Olympique to dub them the “Langueboks”. Fulgence Ouedraogo was one of the three Frenchmen in the Montpellier team, the last survivor of the quartet of young stars who burst onto the scene more than a decade ago. Together with Louis Picamoles, Julien Thomas and Francois Trinh-Duc, Ouedraogo was one of Montpellier’s local lads who went on to play for France. Picamoles and Thomas are long gone, and Trinh-Duc will be joining Toulon next season.On the move: Francois Trinh-Duc is leaving Montpellier for Toulon this summer. Photo: Getty ImagesThe four came of age at just the right moment, becoming the beating lifeblood of a club determined to go places. They literally did in 2007, upgrading from the small and ramshackle Stade Sabathé to the swanky new Stade Yves-du-Manoir. They also went from being one of the Top 14 also-rans to a major player, reaching their first final in 2011.They lost to Toulouse, a match that in hindsight was heavy with symbolism. The sun was beginning to set on Toulouse’s empire in 2011, while Montpellier were at the dawn of theirs. The month before the 2011 final Mohed Altrad, who made his millions through his eponymous construction company, became the principal stakeholder in the club. Five years on and the empire that Altrad has overseen is starting to take shape.Altrad, who renamed the Stade Yves-du-Manoir after himself, recruited Jake White at the start of last year. The pair are cut from the same cloth. Realists not romantics. “I didn’t get into rugby to be famous,” Altrad said in an interview last week. “But to seek a visibility for the Altrad Group, the principal sponsor.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS He’s got the visibility, all right, but popularity remains some way off.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.center_img We are the champions!

High Oleic Soybean Acres Needed in Northeast Indiana

first_img Facebook Twitter Looking for high oleic growersWanted in northeast Indiana: farmers to accept premiums for growing high oleic soybeans. Last week Monsanto gathered groundbreakers who will be the first to plant their Asgrow Vistive Gold beans in Indiana this year. They are paying premiums and more growers are needed, according to Sarah Vacek, Vistive Gold product manager.“It’s not too late to sign up and this year we have a 60 cent per bushel premium for every bushel of soybeans that are produced. In addition because of extra stewardship steps there’s an extra $12.50 per acre for the growers growing Vistive Gold soybeans this year.”Those stewardship steps are necessary while Monsanto awaits some key global approvals for Vistive Gold.Jim Schriver is an Indiana farmer and board member for the United Soybean Board. He told the groundbreakers that these new soybeans that produce zero trans fat oil will help soybean growers get back in the food service game.“We lost a large percentage, a great deal of our oil market because of the trans fat issue, and because of the requirement for labeling trans fats back in 2006. We lost about 4 billion pounds of oil from the marketplace which affected our price ability. So we’re trying to come into the market with high oleic to capture that market back, and the high oleic has a lot of properties that the frying industry likes.”He told HAT the product also has benefits at the cold end of the spectrum.“We’re not sure where that will go long range. There are a lot of people who think that the yellow grease market has more cold flow ability and a second use will be in the biofuels industry or some other industry of that nature. But this product has a lot of opportunity.”Tyson Franks of Fremont, Indiana is a farmer signed on for 2014.“I think it’s extremely important. I’m involved in social media and seeing a lot of the concerns out there with GMO’s and nutrition, and I think it’s important for us to show the  world and our neighbors and our landlords and those involved with us that we are trying to utilize these things for the betterment of everyone. Everyone’s health is at the top of the list and I think it’s interesting and exciting to be a part of such a thing that can revolutionize the food industry.” Home Indiana Agriculture News High Oleic Soybean Acres Needed in Northeast Indiana SHARE SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 12, 2014 Facebook Twitter High Oleic Soybean Acres Needed in Northeast Indiana Previous articleSeed Treatment Could End SDS ImpactNext articleAg Groups to Administration: Reject Japan’s TPP Offer Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Womply Hits Milestone by Helping 250,000 Small Businesses Access Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loans

first_img Previous articleFaurecia ed Immersion instaurano una collaborazione nel ramo delle tecnologie aptiche per il settore automobilisticoNext articleJustice Department drops Yale admissions discrimination suit Digital AIM Web Support SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– As of today, 250,000 small businesses have used Womply—the local commerce platform—to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). We are proud to have partnered with talented and tireless public servants at the Small Business Administration and Treasury Department to make the PPP successful. Our data shows that PPP stimulus has saved hundreds of thousands of businesses and protected millions of jobs.In 2020, Womply helped more than 100,000 small businesses access the PPP program, and the average loan size for our customers was $59,000.So far in 2021, Womply has helped another 150,000 businesses access the latest round of PPP. Year over year, Womply’s average loan size has fallen by 63% to $22,000—a direct result of our efforts to reach underserved, minority, and under-banked borrowers.Womply estimates that up to 30 million individuals and businesses are eligible for PPP loans.Government data from the Small Business Administration shows that only 6.1m PPP loans have been issued since the program launched last year. Therefore, nearly 80% of eligible borrowers have not yet benefited from this program. Womply has helped more than 100,000 non-employers access PPP stimulus so far. Non-employers include workers with independent contractor earnings, self-employed income, or people who consider themselves sole proprietors. Womply has helped tens of thousands of gig workers and micro-businesses apply for PPP stimulus including those that receive payments from companies such as Airbnb (ABNB), DoorDash (DASH), Etsy (ETSY), Fiverr (FVRR), Shopify (SHOP), Square (SQ), Uber (UBER), Upwork (UPWK), Wix (WIX). People who work as contractors, truckers, housekeepers, farmers, gardeners, creators, resellers, and real estate agents may qualify. “Non-employers don’t think of themselves as “small businesses” and therefore they don’t apply for the PPP even though they’re eligible. When in doubt, they should apply,” said Womply founder and CEO, Toby Scammell. Borrowers don’t need a registered business entity, business license, official place of business, business bank account, accountant, lawyer, or business banker to apply. Applications take less than thirty minutes to complete. It’s free to apply and there is no credit check either for the individual or business. When in doubt, apply at womply.com/ppp If they act quickly, non-employers can receive immediate emergency PPP stimulus in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $41,666. Eligible non-employers that did not receive PPP stimulus in 2020 may be eligible for two PPP stimulus loans of up to $20,833 each (a so-called First Draw and Second Draw). Businesses with employees may receive a total of $12m. “With the latest round of PPP funding we’ve deployed our data platform to help with eligibility, qualification, business verification, fraud detection, and streamlining applications,” said Womply founder and CEO, Toby Scammell. “We are supporting nearly 100 other companies that have small business customers or workers to help them all get access to the PPP program. And we are expanding our referral and affiliate programs to reach new applicants who can put PPP money to work rebuilding America.” Apply now at: womply.com/ppp Learn more about the PPP program at womply.com/ppp/faq View Womply’s PPP Stimulus Fact Sheet To learn more about our referral program: [email protected] Submit press inquiries to Justin Davies: [email protected] About Womply Womply’s mission is to help local businesses thrive in a digital world.

Murderer executed in 1999 identified through DNA as man allegedly behind woman’s 1979 cold case killing

first_imgPortland Police Bureau(PORTLAND, Wash.) — A killer and rapist who led police on “the biggest manhunt in Texas history” has been identified as the man allegedly behind a 1979 cold case killing in Portland, Oregon, officials said.But Jerry Walter McFadden, whom authorities now believe killed Anna Marie Hlavka, won’t be tried for the crime because he was executed nearly 20 years ago.The cold case killing of 20-year-old Anna Marie Hlavka dates back to July 24, 1979, when she was sexually assaulted and strangled to death in her apartment, Portland police said Thursday.Hlavka, who was strangled with the electric cord from her clock radio, was discovered by her sister at the home the two shared with Hlavka’s fiance, police said.Decades went by without progress in her murder.The first lead came in 2011 when an unknown male DNA profile was recovered from crime scene evidence, police said.From 2012 to 2016, authorities submitted DNA from eight people to try to identify the killer, but none of the DNA submissions matched the crime scene, police said.The turning point was last year, when detectives looked into the use of genetic genealogy, police said.The new investigative technology uses an unknown suspect’s DNA left at a crime scene to trace his or her family tree. By creating a family tree based on the unknown suspect’s relatives who voluntarily submit DNA to genealogy websites, authorities can zero in on a suspect.The first public arrest through genetic genealogy was the arrest of the suspected “Golden State Killer” in April. Since then, genetic genealogy has helped lead to more than 20 other suspect identifications.By October, a genealogy expert working with police zeroed in on McFadden as the suspect in Hlavka’s case, authorities said.But McFadden, a convicted murderer, was executed in Texas in 1999.“Due to McFadden’s execution date, his DNA profile was never entered into the FBI CODIS database for comparison,” police said in Thursday’s news release.McFadden’s family members gave DNA to detectives, who confirmed a match to the DNA at the Portland murder scene, police said.McFadden had a lengthy and violent criminal record, including murder, rape and kidnapping.In 1973, he was sentenced to 15 years behind bars for two counts of rape, police said.But he was paroled in December 1978 — eight months before Hlavka’s murder, police said.Detectives have since learned McFadden went to the Pacific Northwest in 1979 with a woman who “reported dropping him off in Portland and having no further contact with him,” police said.In 1979, McFadden was convicted of kidnapping and raping an 18-year-old woman at knife-point, police said.McFadden was paroled in July 1985.He arrested again less than a year later for raping and killing an 18-year-old high schooler and shooting two others, police said.McFadden was in jail awaiting a capital murder trial when he escaped and kidnapped a corrections officer, holding her hostage for three days, police said.The search for McFadden was called “the biggest manhunt in Texas history,” with more than 1,000 officers involved, Portland police said.McFadden’s crimes led to parole changes in Texas, according to police.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Paulson votes against proposed Callon acquisition of Carrizo

first_img Image: Paulson votes against proposed Callon acquisition of Carrizo. Photo: Courtesy of Tumisu from Pixabay. Paulson & Co. Inc. (“Paulson”), as manager of funds holding 21.6 million shares, or 9.5% of those outstanding, of Callon Petroleum Company (“Callon” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CPE), today voted its Callon shares against the proposed acquisition of Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc. (“Carrizo”) (NASDAQ: CRZO).Paulson notes that Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) and Glass Lewis & Co. (“Glass Lewis”) both recommend that Callon shareholders vote against the Company’s proposed acquisition of Carrizo.  Both proxy advisors provide valuable, independent perspectives to constituencies concerning proxy matters.Callon shareholders and analysts have expressed a strong interest in our views and have communicated that they share many of our concerns.  The Callon Board, which has to date been unresponsive to any of our communications, should listen to its shareholders.If, on November 14th, Callon shareholders reject the approval of the proposed acquisition, Paulson requests that the Callon Board should follow the will of its shareholders and direct management to focus on:Reducing G&A costs, which have risen by over $12 million for the first nine months of 2019 versus 2018;Focusing its SIMOPS mega-pad development on its extensive stand-alone acreage;Delivering on generating true corporate-level free cash flow organically starting in the fourth quarter of this year assuming $50/bbl, as previously guided (page 14 of its February 26, 2019 presentation); andEngaging new, independent advisors to pursue a sale of Callon.As ISS states, a standalone Callon would be less risky and, combined with a reduction in its own operating costs, a shorter path to shareholder value than an overpriced acquisition.  As Glass Lewis concludes, investors could be pleasantly surprised once the Company begins to generate positive free cash flow on a standalone basis, or if the board actively solicited interest from would-be suitors, which the board didn’t do before signing the merger agreement with Carrizo.
