Michael Brial’s assault on Frank Bunce in 1996

first_imgThursday Nov 6, 2008 Michael Brial’s assault on Frank Bunce in 1996 Not too long ago we featured the 1996 classic Bledisloe Cup match between the Wallabies and the All Blacks from Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Frank Bunce scored the late winning try, but it was Michael Brials malicious attack on him early on that had many people talking. Six minutes into the crucial Tri Nations match big Jonah Lomu was superbly tackled by the much smaller Ben Tune. As the ball was recycled, All Black center Bunce picked up, but was confronted by the uncompromising Wallaby number eight, Michael Brial. Brial unleashed a barrage of seemingly unprovoked strikes as Bunce played punching bag for what seemed like ages. Not too many of the shots actually landed, but the incident sparked outrage in the New Zealand camp. Astonishingly, referee Jim Fleming chose not to send Brial from the field, instead only reversing the penalty that was originally awarded to the Wallabies. New Zealand coach John Hart was outraged at Flemings ruling of the incident, with Bunce, the man on the wrong end of it, being equally surprised. “I couldn’t believe it he went right over the top,” Bunce said afterwards. It later emerged that Brial may still have held a grudge about the way Bunce flew into him at a maul, injuring him, four years earlier.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumors Begin With A Video And An Eye Scroll

first_imgdan rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Samsung Galaxy Related Posts Other than playing cute with suburbanites, the video does not actually reveal anything about the supposed S4. For actual rumor-mongering, we turn to The New York Times. Eye Scrolling?The Times reports that the Galaxy S4 will have a feature where users can scroll down a page… using their eyes. The software will track a user’s eye movement to navigate the screen. Well, so much for the touchscreen revolution. Samsung apparently has figured out a way to interact with a smartphone without touching it at all. The Times also uncovered patents by Samsung for “Eye Scroll” describing it as: “Computer application software having a feature of sensing eye movements and scrolling displays of mobile devices, namely, mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers according to eye movements; digital cameras; mobile telephones; smartphones; tablet computers.”The Times’ source does not know if Eye Scroll will be debuted at the Unpacked event on the 14th. What’s On The Rumor Mill?It seems funny that Samsung is better able to keep a secret than Apple is these days. That may be because Samsung makes many of the components for its devices – like the processors – whereas Apple’s supply chain is prone to leaks and rumors. We knew almost everything there was to known about the iPhone 5 by the time it was released. We know very little about the Galaxy S4. TechRadar reports that it will have a 5-inch screen (bigger than the 4.8-inch screen of the Galaxy S3), 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core processor and Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2. CNET reports that it will have a 13 megapixel back camera and 2 MP front camera. If the Times’ source is to be believed, the software features running on the S4 “outweighed the importance of the hardware.” This is probably true, at least from Samsung’s perspective. Over its last couple of device releases, Samsung has focused on shiny new features it’s layered onto Android, such as camera options, the S Pen (and assorted “S” apps) and various ways of playing and sharing video, music and what-have-you.Over time, the trend is clear: Samsung want the experience of using its phones to be as unique as possible, likely to the point that Android may become completely unrecognizable on its devices. That may be a very good or very bad thing, depending on your opinion of Samsung’s software decisions. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … For a smartphone with as much hype and anticipation as Samsung’s Galaxy S4, we know surprisingly little about it. We know that it is likely to launch on March 14th at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. We know that Samsung will have a huge marketing plan around it and worldwide distribution on a mammoth scale.That’s Samsung. Big is what it does. Other than that? Not so much.This Maxwell Equation Doesn’t ComputeWe got a couple more hints today at what Samsung will unveil next week. First, we get a truly terrible video from the Samsung marketing department that is so cringe-worthy that it makes me want to drown a burlap sack full of kittens. It features Samsung’s “secret messenger,” a preppy young white boy by the name of Jeremy Maxwell. Little Jeremy signs what is likely a non-disclosure agreement, gets a peak into the Samsung “Unpacked” box and takes his trophy home, where he starts to be terrorized by the neighbor girl. The video ends “to be continued.”Let’s hope not. I will be at the launch event for the Galaxy S4 and I hope that annoying little twit Jeremy Maxwell makes it nowhere near the stage.

Brazeau defence We will challenge that lady

first_imgSuspended Senator Patrick BrazeauBy Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsThe lawyer defending suspended Senator Patrick Brazeau in his ongoing assault and sexual assault case wants to use statements made by the alleged victim to the RCMP during a separate Senate expenses investigation to challenge her credibility, Quebec provincial court heard Friday.Brazeau was not present for his Valentine’s Day date with the court. His defence lawyer Gerard Larocque appeared on his behalf.Brazeau’s next court date was set for April 11 for a preparatory conference which could lead his eventual trial date.The Algonquin Senator, who was appointed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2008, was charged last Feb. 7 after Gatineau police arrived at his rented townhouse and found him locked in an upstairs bedroom. Police received had two phone calls from a crying woman earlier that morning.Gatineau police allege Brazeau choked and spat on the woman, his former partner, according to a court document. Police also allege he pushed her down stairs, grabbed her breasts and pulled her pants down hard enough to snap a button and break a zipper.Larocque was trying to move the next court date to June arguing the defence was still going though disclosure and needed to obtain video and RCMP police notes of an interview Brazeau’s alleged victim gave the RCMP as part of the federal force’s fraud investigation into Senate expenses.Brazeau, along with retired Liberal senator Mac Harb, was charged by the RCMP earlier this month with breach of trust and fraud as a result of the investigation leading to those charges.Brazeau was suspended from the Senate late last year over his Senate expenses along with fellow, former Conservative Senators Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin.Larocque has already obtained an audio recording and transcript of the RCMP interview, said Quebec Crown prosecutor Sylvain Peticlerc. Petitclerc said he wasn’t aware that any video existed of the interview and said the defence was simply trying to play for time.Brazeau’s lawyer, however, told APTN National News the video existed because of the type of interview the RCMP conducted with the alleged victim. He said if the Crown doesn’t provide the video, the RCMP will.Larocque said the RCMP interview was pertinent to the case because it would speak to the alleged victim’s credibility.“Come to the trial, we will be able to challenge the lady,” said Larocque.Larocque also said that he doesn’t believe the Crown has provided him with all the disclosure yet.Peticlerc told the court he had.RCMP Cpl. Ben Jolette interviewed Brazeau’s alleged victim in June and July of last year as part of the Senate expense investigation, according to an Information to Obtain, filed in Ontario court by the RCMP in August.According to the ITO, which was used by the RCMP to obtain access to Brazeau’s Bank of Nova Scotia and TD Bank accounts, the alleged victim described when and where she met Brazeau and how their relationship evolved.She told the RCMP that in the 20 months she lived with Brazeau he never lived in Maniwaki, Que., which he had listed as a primary residence to claim housing expenses.The alleged victim told the RCMP Brazeau was basically homeless after his last marriage broke up, alternately living with his brother in Gatineau, his administrative assistant or at an Ottawa hotel. The pair eventually moved into the Gatineau townhouse from where police received the two phone calls on the morning of Feb. 7.Brazeau has also recently run into some financial difficulty. Last month, the Bank of Nova Scotia moved to repossess a home he co-owned with his former wife, according to a document filed with the  District Registrar of the Land Registry District of Gatineau. The bank said they owed $201, 015 of their mortgage and a separate loan, according to the document.The house was vacated on Jan. 5, said the document, which was filed on January 27.Larocque wouldn’t comment on whether he believed Brazeau could pay him until the end of the trial.Brazeau, however, has managed to reconstruct his love life. His new partner, Vanessa Brisson, appeared with him on the night of Nov. 6 when he the Senate voted to suspend him.Brisson, who works as a server at a Gatineau bar, is scheduled to appear in Quebec court on Feb. 25 to face cocaine and marijuana possession charges, according to court [email protected]@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Kinder Morgan Canada income falls despite rise in pipeline and terminals revenue

first_imgCALGARY — Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. is reporting second-quarter income from continuing operations of $21.6 million, a decrease of $1.9 million from the second quarter of 2018.Earnings were boosted in the second quarter of 2018 by the gain on the sale of an Edmonton area pipeline segment, resulting in an apparent five per cent decline in the recent period.Excluding that gain, however, the segment was actually up 15 per cent, driven by storage capacity additions at its Edmonton terminal joint venture, the company said. Kinder Morgan says revenue rose in the three months ended June 30 to $104.9 million, up from $95.7 million in the same period of 2018, thanks to strong performance from its pipelines and terminals.Kinder Morgan Canada announced in May it had decided to remain a stand-alone public company after a strategic review of options that could have included the sale of part or all of the corporation.The company was spun off from its American parent, Kinder Morgan, Inc., in mid-2017 to raise money to build the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion but it sold the pipeline and its expansion project to the federal government for $4.5 billion last summer.last_img read more

Decision on funding to Jet Airways to be on collective basis says

first_imgMumbai: State-run Punjab National Bank (PNB) Wednesday said any decision to provide emergency funds to cash-strapped Jet Airways will be taken collectively by the lenders and not on a standalone basis. The assertion comes in the backdrop of media reports that PNB had approved Rs 2,050 crore of emergency funding to Jet Airways, for which lenders are considering a resolution plan under Project Sashakt. In a filing to exchanges, Jet Airways had earlier clarified it has not received any fresh loan from PNB. “No, we are going (on decision to lend further to Jet Airways) collectively. The resolution will come with the participation of the stakeholders and we are working on it,” the bank’s managing director and CEO, Sunil Mehta, told reporters when asked whether the lender was considering fresh funds to the loss-making Carrier on a standalone basis. Mehta was speaking at the sidelines of the Ficci-IBA event here Thursday. Any emergency funding to Jet Airways will be part of the resolution package, he said. Mehta said the resolution plan for the airline is under deliberation at the joint lender forum and the lead banker, State Bank of India, is in discussion with various stake holders. Bank of India’s managing director and CEO Dinabandhu Mohapatra, who was also present at the event, said bankers are supporting the resolution plan for the airline. “Unless you support, there will be destruction of value. We have to protect the value and the airline,” Mohapatra told reporters. Jet Airways has a debt of over Rs 8,000 crore and needs to make repayments of up to Rs 1,700 crore by the end of March. The airline, has however, already defaulted on repayments on external commercial borrowings due to the paucity of funds. The acute liquidity crunch has forced it to ground aircraft, shut down stations and delay salary payments to its pilots and engineers along with other senior staff. It has been looking at various ways to raise funds. On March 8, Jet Airways chairman Naresh Goyal wrote to Etihad Airways Group CEO Tony Douglas seeking an urgent funding of Rs 750 crore under an MoU signed between various stakeholders. Etihad Board, however, has reportedly not taken a final decision on the pact. Last month, shareholders of Jet Airways cleared approved conversion of loan into shares and other proposals. On 14 February, Jet Airways’ board approved a bank-Led Provisional Resolution Plan (BLPRP), whereby lenders would become the largest shareholders in the airline. Following approval from the shareholders, part of debt would be converted into 11.4 crore shares at a consideration of Re 1 apiece as per the RBI norms.last_img read more
