The British & Irish Lions blasted the Maori All Blacks 32-10. Here are all the talking points from the match-up in Rotorua British & Irish Lions: Leigh Halfpenny; Anthony Watson, Jonathan Davies, Ben Te’o, George North (Elliot Daly 62); Johnny Sexton (D Biggar 66), Conor Murray (Greig Laidlaw 66); Mako Vunipola (Jack McGrath 59), Jamie George (Ken Owens 64), Tadhg Furlong (Kyle Sinckler 64), Maro Itoje, George Kruis (Iain Henderson 59), Peter O’Mahony (capt)(Sam Warburton 62), Sean O’Brien, Taulupe Faletau.Tries: Penalty try (7 points), Itoje. Cons: Halfpenny. Pens: Halfpenny 6. Chasing – The kicks that rained down (until the Maori lost their defensive shape and the Lions ran at the them) looked all the better for improved chasing. Too often people use missed tackle statistics as a stick to beat players, but on this night, if a tackle was missed on a kick chase, the catcher was invariably gobbled up. In the aerial game of chicken, the Lions edged it.What’s not?The conditions – The weather was rank. But it has been most of the tour. Not something to complain about but something to help explain why Murray and Halfpenny hoisted so many kicks skywards.Maori cynicism – In the first half a complaint came in about the Maori All Blacks killing ball in their own 22. In the second half such tactics finally got on referee Jaco Peyper’s wick and he eventually snapped ten minutes into the second half.Poor tannoy work – In a land where everyone is told to respect tradition and values, making potato jokes about the Irish seemed poor. Then when Itoje scored, it was announced that “Courtney Lawes” had gone over. The man on the mic also announced some phantom substitutions. Not a great day at the office.All smiles: James Lowe of the Maori All Blacks had a night to forgetStatistics1 – The number of penalties given away by the Lions in the second half.75% – The territory the Lions enjoyed in the game. According to Gatland, they “squeezed the life out of them.”67 – Tackles made by the Lions. That is so few, it is scary. They didn’t need to.21 – Broken tackles by the Lions. With ten offloads added in, this was a more adventurous showing, but both of their tries came from the scrum.Maori All Blacks: James Lowe; Nehe Milner-Skudder, Matt Proctor (Rob Thompson 53), Charlie Ngatai, Rieko Ioane; Damian McKenzie (Ihaia West 62), Tawera Kerr-Barlow (Bryn Hall 74); Kane Hames (Chris Eves 61), Ash Dixon (capt) (Hikawera Elliot 70), Ben May (Marcel Renata 70), Joe Wheeler (Leighton Price 70), Tom Franklin, Akira Ioane, Elliot Dixon (Kara Pryor 74), Liam Messam.Tries: Messam. Cons: McKenzie. Pens: McKenzie.Yellow card: Kerr-Barlow Watch as all the talk of this being the “unofficial fourth Test” disappears – the Lions exerted total and utter control over a Maori All Blacks team that never even flirted with the flair we were promised pre-match. In their 32-10 win, the Lions finally played unapologetically like themselves.Several local fans were grumbling as Leigh Halfpenny unlatched his unerring boot, kicking seven from seven. They had paid to see basketball-style rugby, but what they got was a confident northern hemisphere showing. It was high kicks, punishment of infringements and calmness. The difference between their half-time score (the Lions led 12-10) and their full-time score shows the steadiness.The hosts opened their try account first, though, with a jolter early on. The Maori try was a product of panic. With a Kick in behind, George North and Halfpenny raced back. North slid but spilt the ball after fly-hacking forward, Liam Messam helped himself to a score. North, unlike so many others, still does not look confident in himself.Sure footed: Leigh Halfpenny kicked seven from sevenIt was the only moment of Maori dominance. This was a controlled display – though still mottled by the odd spill, and although discipline was markedly improved by the Lions it is worth noting that referee Jaco Peyper – who takes the whistle in the first Test against the All Blacks at Eden Park – is not a fan of petulance from players.Halfpenny kept the scoreboard ticking over, though, and just as encouraging for them, there was a high level of set-piece superiority.This showed at 51 minutes when the Lions scrum obliterated their Maori counterparts and Peyper went under the posts for a penalty try. This came after a number of offences by the hosts anyway, and Tawera Kerr-Barlow was shown a yellow card for a shoulder shunt on Halfpenny as he made a break for the line.A second Lions try came from Itoje after another strong scrum. The pack will be eager to go again after this, and although there was no breakout score, again, there were glimmers as centres Ben Te’o and Jonathan Davies created plenty of chances.They were so nearly there against the Maori.A convincing win here may render it unimportant for many, but can the Lions score a few more tries? It is still a big thing to work on, alongside eradicating the errors that the All Blacks thrive on. Which in itself is a positive.Here is what’s hot and what’s not from this one.Finding his rhythm: Jonathan Davies looked comfortable alongside Ben Te’oWhich Lions caught the eye?George Kruis – With ten minutes left, under the shadow of the Maori sticks, there was a slow ruck, ripe for picking off. Kruis saw off the danger with a monster clearout. It is this kind of work, allied with set-piece solidity, that makes Kruis an invaluable athlete. He only played an hour, but Henderson added fresh impetus from the pine. With Kruis’s mate Itoje winning Sky’s man of the match, there is a real sense of competition in the boiler house.Johnny Sexton – All that fuss about Farrell tumbled away in the rain as Sexton showed what makes him such a strong competitor. Shouting the odds, making late challenges on the rucks. Two moments in the first half stood out in particular. The first was an outside break when the hole appeared in front of him and the second was a smart turn and nudge into the corner that was millimetre perfect. After the game, John Kirwan praised the fly-half and his mate Conor Murray for a smart performance.Jonathan Davies – He is still missing that final pass, something that was displayed in the first half as he broke up the left side of the pitch and cut inside past defenders instead of running to draw men and unbutton a pass to the outside for support. However, when he surges through the line or floats near a menacing Te’o, he can alter a defence’s shape.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREWhat’s hot?Game management – No one wants to get carried away just yet about the Lions and the Maori backs in particular disappointed, the tourists made their hosts play the game they wanted. The key in New Zealand is never to be press-ganged into a game they enjoy. This was a good example of bloody-mindedness.Dominant: The Lions scrum shoneLions set-piece – They drove well from the lineout and embarrassed the Maori scrum. Kick receptions worked well too. But perhaps what will have pleased Gatland’s assistants the most is ruck clearouts. We saw savage blasts from Kruis and then Henderson, but the team effort was impressive.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Christmas Bird Count sponsored by National Audubon SocietyThe St. Johns River Water Management District is partnering with the National Audubon Society for its 117th Annual Christmas Bird Count. Several district properties will host birdwatchers during the nationwide event.“District properties play an important role in protecting our water resources, but also provide wildlife habitat,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “We are happy for an opportunity to collaborate with Audubon and birders in our area on this annual census in recognition of the value of these lands for bird habitat.”This nationwide wildlife census is organized by the National Audubon Society. Each count takes place in a 15-mile diameter circle where every bird sited is included in the count, giving an indication of the total number of birds in the circle that day.The district regularly partners with local chapters of Audubon Florida to benefit Florida’s natural resources. For the Christmas Bird Count, the district helps by providing access to land and, in some cases, providing staff to participate in the count. Multiple district properties will host count circles, including:Lake Apopka North Shore in Lake and Orange countiesMoses Creek Conservation Area in St. Johns CountyParts of Hal Scott Regional Preserve and Park in Orange CountyParts of Seminole Ranch Conservation Area in Seminole CountyParts of Canaveral Marshes Conservation Area in Brevard CountyData collection during the count provides not only an assessment of the long-term health and status of bird populations but also contributes to the district’s species list for each property.The nationwide, volunteer-driven event runs from Dec. 14 to Jan. 5.

The diet of toothfish species Dissostichus eleginoides and Dissostichus mawsoni with overlapping distributions
The diets of Antarctic toothfish Dissostichus mawsoni and Patagonian toothfish Dissostichus eleginoides were examined around the South Sandwich Islands in the Southern Ocean, one of few regions with overlapping populations of the two species. Despite large differences in the proportion of stomachs containing prey (76.2% of D. mawsoni compared to 7.2% of D. eleginoides), diet composition was broadly similar (Schoener overlap index of 74.4% based on prey mass) with finfishes (particularly macrourids and muraenolepidids) and cephalopods (mainly Kondakovia longimana) comprising > 90% of the prey mass of both species. Predation rates of the main fish prey, as mean counts per stomach sampled, were spatially correlated with their relative abundance around the islands derived from fishery by-catch data, suggesting a general lack of prey selectivity. This study supports the view that bathyal Dissostichus are opportunistic carnivores and finds that D. mawsoni and D. eleginoides occupy a similar trophic niche and are likely to compete for prey in regions where both are distributed. The large increase in rate of prey occurrence and size of prey in D. mawsoni stomachs relative to D. eleginoides suggests, however, species differences in feeding behaviour, which may reflect the increased metabolic demands of a cold-water adapted physiology.

Magic Mountain Ski and Snowboard Resort,The phone has been ringing off the hook and Magic has answered. The Magic Mountain Tube Park is officially open for the season so southern Vermont has its tube back. In a snow-starved winter so far, people are even more anxious to get outside and do something. And, besides skiing and riding, one of those things is sledding which is pretty tough to do if theres no snow in the backyard.Magic Mountain’s Tube Park, conveniently located at the central base of the mountain will have all three lanes grooved out and ready to go starting Friday January 6th.After school from 4-7pm. Saturdays the park is open from 11am to 7pm and on Sundays from 11am to 4pm. The Alakazaam Tube Park has great viewing from the lodge and families can enjoy great food and refreshments at the Black Line Brew Pub located on the upper floor.‘We’ve been focused on making snow first on our trail system to good effect, but the demand over the New Year’s break was very high for tubing,’ said Jim Sullivan, Magic Mountain’s president. ‘So, wesqueezed snowmaking and grooming in for the tubing as well as the ski and snowboard learning areas at the base when the temperatures dropped this week.’Magic first opened in 1960 and will be celebrating this season its 50th anniversary of peak to bottom skiing dating from 1962, which to this day, is still one of the most exciting, challenging and authenticVermont ski experiences. Different than the corporate resorts, Magic has stayed true to the original Vermont ski culture. Magic skiers enjoy a mountain emphasizing natural, diverse ski terrain in anatmosphere of shared camaraderie for the sport both on the slopes and in the lodge after a long, rewarding day. Magic has an authentic vibe because, in reality, it still remains first and foremost a ski area, not a resort and a distinctly Vermont one at that. It’s a community spirit that keeps Magic thriving for those committed ski and riding enthusiasts who want to carve their own trail and experience realsnow and obstacles that mother-nature puts on the hill. And, it’s why Magic skiers love the mountain so much that they are personally investing in the ski area via The Magic Partnership in order toenhance and preserve it for future generations to enjoy.January 5, 2012, Londonderry, VT
