France’s lock Pascal Pape (L), prop Vincent Debaty (C) look dejected after losing to ArgentinaIN CASE you missed it what with all the misery surrounding the Home Nations narrow defeats at the weekend, France also suffered at the hands of the southern hemisphere. Their 23-20 loss to Argentina in Cordoba was Les Bleus eighth defeat in 11 matches against the Pumas, writes Gavin Mortimer.France have the chance to level the two-Test series this Saturday when they face Argentina in Tucuman but coach Philippe Saint-Andre was brutally honest in his assessment of the defeat. Asked in an interview with L’Equipe, the French sports daily, if his side had failed to close out the game having led at half-time, Saint-Andre snapped: “The truth is that in the Top 14 final props of both sides [Toulouse and Toulon] were foreign. The fly-halves also. So there you are. End of story.”It’s not the first time Saint-Andre has criticised the number of overseas players in the Top 14 (despite his having been in charge of Toulon for two years) and the detrimental effect it’s having on the national side. But what can be done about it?Unlike the comparatively smooth relationship that now exists between the RFU and the leading English clubs, relations in France are far more fractious with Saint-Andre – like his predecessor Marc Lievremont – bemoaning the lack of time he has with his players. He was at it again in the L’Equipe interview, saying of Argentina: “They have 25 players who have been in a World Cup-type training camp ahead of the Four Nations later this summer, and all paid for by the French clubs! And us [France], we tried to have three and a half days before taking on a side who have had three weeks together.”Saint-Andre has a point. Three of the French XV – Louis Picamoles, Florian Fritz and Yoann Maestri – that started against the Pumas had been playing in the final of the Top 14 seven days earlier before jumping on a plane and arriving exhausted on the other side of the world. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS France’s lock Pascal Pape (R), prop Vincent Debaty (C) and flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo, react after being defeated by Argentina’s Pumas during their rugby union international test match at Mario Kempes stadium in Cordoba, some 700 Km northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina, on June 16, 2012. Argentina won by 23-20. AFP PHOTO / Juan Mabromata (Photo credit should read JUAN MABROMATA/AFP/GettyImages) Saint-Andre is aware that he’s echoing the complaints made by his predecessors and he’s realistic to acknowledge it’s highly unlikely the FFR [French Federation] and LNR [the Top 14 governing body] will cooperate to make his life easier. Only recently the top clubs mooted the idea of expanding the Top 14 by two clubs, a crazy idea considering the already packed fixture list. Fortunately the proposal didn’t come to pass but Saint-Andre remains pessimistic about the future.One of the most startling statistics to emerge from the recent Top 14 season was that both the semi-finals and the final of the competition failed to produce a single try: imagine, 240 minutes of rugby and no one managed to dot down for a five pointer. The Top 14 final was roundly acknowledged by the neutral to have been one of the most tedious matches in the league’s 120-year history and who can forget the all-French borefest that was this year’s Amlin Cup final between Biarritz and Toulon. Again not a try to be seen. The brutal fact is – and let’s hope the Welsh boys heading to France next season are aware of this – players in France are being worked into the ground. The final of the Top 14 was on June 9 and the 2012-13 season kicks off on August 18. Compare that with the Aviva Premiership, which climaxed on May 26 and reconvenes on September 1. French players are exhausted most of the year round, and Saint-Andre knows it. As he admitted sardonically of the defeat to Argentina: “It wasn’t a match of high quality but the ball was in play for 11 minutes more than the Top 14 final.”French flair isn’t dead but it’s in a deep sleep.

The rebellion against the company’s remunerations’ committee report saw the pay deal rejected in a non-binding vote of some 60 per cent of shareholders.The vote against the Remunerations Committee’s report is non-binding because the company sets its pay policy for a period of three years; but the company’s chairman, Carl-Henric Svanberg, told shareholders: “We hear you!”“Let me be clear: We hear you,” he said. “We will sit down with our largest shareholders to make sure we understand their concerns and return to seek your support for a renewed policy.A spokesman for the C of E confirmed to ACNS that the church’s national investing bodies “did vote against the package in line with our ethical policies.”The Guardian newspaper reports that the C of E Pensions Board asked the meeting whether the proposed £14 million pay deal was “morally right” asking how much an individual executive needed to be incentivize to make him work. This year the company reported record losses, cut thousands of jobs and froze the pay of most employees.In a separate move, the C of E has announced that it now has the support of 30 institutional investors for its shareholder proposal urging ExxonMobil to disclose the impact of climate change policy on its business. The motion will be put to the company’s AGM on May 25 after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission overruled an attempt by the company to reject it.The resolution, co-filed by the Church Commissioners for England and New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, asks Exxon to disclose how resilient its portfolio and strategy is in light of the agreement at the COP21 talks in Paris last December to restrict global warming to two degrees.The institutional investors backing the motion include AXA Investment Management, BNP Paribas, Legal & General Investment Management and Schroder’s. Together, the 30 investors have more than $6 trillion of assets under management.

Around 30 street fundraisers will be giving up their time and their clipboards to lend their weight to the Tsunami Appeal this Saturday.The fundraisers, who work for several Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) member companies, will be joining forces to encourage passers-by in the Islington area of London to donate their small change. All the funds raised on the day will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee Appeal Fund to support victims of the tsunami.Speaking on behalf of the fundraisers Sue Brumpton of the PFRA said: “Street fundraisers are extraordinary people and I am not surprised at the willingness they have shown to give their own time to collect cash for the appeal.

Indiana Corn Entering Critical Development State By Gary Truitt – Jun 5, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHARE Indiana Corn Entering Critical Development StateMatt MaughanEarly crop development in Indiana is generally good, but corn is entering a critical development stage. Adequate moisture in most areas helped this year’s crop get off to a good start, but Matt Maughan, field agronomist with DuPont Pioneer, says crops in NW Indiana are entering a vulnerable growth stage, “Generally in the area the corn is in the 3 leaf to 5 leaf stage.” He said this is a critical stage where the plants are transitioning from one root system to another, “Oftentimes in this stage we will see uneven development, yellowing or even purple corn.” He said this is typical and should improve, “As we get into warmer weather and dryer conditions, the crops will straighten out.”Maughan said heavy rain in some areas have damaged the young plants to the point where replanting will be needed, “Some areas got very heavy rains this past weekend, and I am sure there will be some replanting, especially for corn.” Despite the late date, he said with shorter season hybrids replant on corn is still an option.Another factor impacting early crop development is the last of heat units and growing degree days. But Maughan says the forecast looks warmer and cool temperatures in May and early June should not have much of an impact, “I am not concerned with a warming trend in the forecast, it will take off with some warmer weather.”Listen to reports from DuPont Pioneer agronomists from around the state here.
