Heritage refused to pay capital gains tax on the sale, which the government and Tullow said was due, and subsequently the government refused to renew the licences for Tullow which had planned to sell stakes to France’s Total and China’s CNOOC. The licence dispute has forced Tullow to halt operations at the blocks. last_img read more

Edinburgh secure Lee Jones until 2014

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jones first signed for Edinburgh Rugby in 2009 after some stirring performances for former club Selkirk.Just a season after signing straight from Scotland’s domestic divisions, the Heriot-Watt graduate was excelling in the 2010 Commonwealth Games and in the HSBC Sevens World Series, before coming into his own in his second season at the capital club. Wing Lee jones seen celebrating a try against London Irish during the pool stages of the Heinieken CupScotland and Edinburgh Rugby winger Lee Jones has capped a breakthrough season with an extended deal that will keep him at the Murrayfield club until 2014.As one of the season’s stand-out performers, the young Borderer has shown an extraordinary strength and guile as a line-breaking, try-scoring winger, running in five scores in 16 appearances so far this season, two of which bookended the club’s historic pool campaign in the Heineken Cup.Jones kick-started the club’s fight-back away against London Irish in round one and the last secured the all-important bonus-point against the same opposition at Murrayfield in round six to earn home advantage in the quarter-final against Toulouse on Easter weekend (Saturday 7 April).As a player who has shown consistent improvements since turning professional in 2009, Jones was rewarded with selection in Scotland’s 2012 RBS 6 Nations squad, making his debut against England at Murrayfield before being reselected for the second Test against Wales. Edinburgh Rugby head coach Michael Bradley said: “Lee [Jones] has grasped all the opportunities presented to him improve and perform. His performances have undoubtedly lifted the team on a number of occasions and he has an exceptional engine which always helps him to hunt out scores from the opposite wing.“Some of his highlights would certainly be his covering defensive work and an incredible strength in the contact area that regularly takes teams by surprise. Few can afford to give him a glimpse of a gap or he’ll be away. His work rate is exceptional and he’s a great professional. He brings great energy to squad and we’re delighted to have such a committed player extend his time at the club.” EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – JANUARY 22: Edinburgh Rugby wing Lee Jones (l) celebrates with Stuart Mcinally after scoring the fourth try during the Pool two match between Edinburgh Rugby and London Irish at Murrayfield Stadium on January 22, 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

In fact, here’s some things you can do to make the day great.1. Treat yo’  self Spend the day doing what your nonexistent lover would do for you. Go to one of the many spas around town like Perfect Touch Day Spa or Mokara Spa at the Omni and treat yourself to a massage or a facial. Enjoy a day celebrating you, because you deserve it.

Take care of your household chores Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, a day that is often reserved for catching up on all that laundry you didn’t do or all the dishes sitting in your sink. So you can do exactly that. Then when Monday morning rolls around you’ll have your full wardrobe at your disposal and a clean kitchen to brag about. Plus it may even make your life seem much more put together than it really is.via GIPHY9. Do absolutely nothing differentWhen it comes down to it, Valentine’s day is just like every other day. Treat it as such. Tomorrow will be just an ordinary Monday. You do you. 2. Have a partyCourtesy of giphy.comEverybody loves a good ol’ anti-Valentine’s Day party. Invite all your single friends over, stock up on the snacks and drinks and enjoy a night of pure unattached bliss at home. 3. Have a girl’s or guy’s night outGrab your crew, get dressed up in your favorite outfit and hit the club. It’ll be full of single people, so if you’re feeling sappy and lonely, the odds are in your favor. Check out Varsity Tavern on 7th Street or catch a good jazz show at Scat Jazz Lounge downtown. Linkedin Ripple Effect: TCU professor talks gravitational waves Severe thunderstorms moving through Fort Worth 4. Get out of townTake all that money you’re saving by not buying someone a cheesy gift and date night and go on a trip.

All we need to do is see and appreciate its value.Blair Health Academy, together with Men Educating Men About Health (MEMAH), aims to educate the young people on the basics and importance of eye health with the Lions Club’s Eyemobile.The partnership was formed when “we were contacted by MEMAH and asked if we were interested in a partnership and of course we jumped on the opportunity,” says Debbie Curtin, director of the Blair Health Careers Academy.Courtain tells us how “this kind of opportunity, gets our students a chance to be trained and exposed to health professionals, how to work with patients and clients.”The Lions International Eyemobile, is a “a van that’s totally equipped with eye and hearing equipment,” says Curtin.An optometrist and audiologist volunteers their services while students help them by “organizing the patients, taking the patients’ histories and doing the initial eye exam, and then filtering the patients into the eye doctor and the hearing where they do the actual test. The patient would come out of the bus and we would do any referral that the doctor’s recommended,” says Curtin.For the high school students, it is a chance to have them involved in community service. This is important for them, Curtin says, because “all colleges and employers want to look and see what these kids get back to the community before they take them in.”The students will also get to learn the “soft skills which would employ ability skills like customer service, patient care, communication, technical fields, etc.,” Curtin explains.Also, Curtin adds, the students “can use these hours towards their internship. They need to complete 180-hour internship in the health field and so that also helps them to be employable and helps colleges, universities to look at them because they have a little bit more than the average student would have.”The eyemobile is part of the Pasadena Host Lions International, and the students are part of the Leo Club, “which is like the baby Lions,” says Curtin. So in a way, these students are being mentored by the Lions Host by providing the eyemobile and the opportunity to hone and sharpen their skills in health care.To learn about the Pasadena Host Lions Club, visit http://www.pasadenahostlions.org for more information.For more on Blair High School, located at 1201 South Marengo Ave., visit http://blair.pasadenausd.org.Discover what MEMAH is all about by visiting http://memah.org.
