As a result Nintendo was forced to cut its earnings forecast for the year by a third. The company trimmed its projection for overall DS sales for the year to 23.5m units from 30m and lowered its estimate for Wii consoles to 17.5m machines from 18m.Net revenues are expected to be £680m, down from £1.51bn last year.Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said yesterday: “At first we thought it would be desirable to launch the 3DS within the year, so we made our forecasts on that basis. At this point it is clear that if we launch within the year, we will not be able to supply enough units.”The 3DS is expected to cost around the £200 mark, although exact details have not been released yet. The casing of the console is expected to be almost identical to one demonstrated at the annual E3 games event in June.The 3DS will also allow users to download games from a platform similar to Apple’s App Store, cashing in on the trend for classic games. whatsapp Wednesday 29 September 2010 10:33 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comcenter_img Nintendo 3DS not ready in time for Xmas whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Rugby is getting safer in England’s top flight

first_img“The injury audit is the main part of what is a much wider programme of medical initiatives taking place in England designed to promote the safest playing and training environment in world rugby. Cardiac screening, the illicit drugs education programme, the alcohol education programme, pitch side trauma care and concussion management are all examples of what is happening at the elite levelin England and an example of what can be achieved when clubs, players and the union work together.”David Barnes, Bath Rugby player and Chairman of the Rugby Players’ Association, said: “Maintaining good player welfare is key to the continuing success of the game and we are pleased to see injury rates falling in this latest audit. It’s important now to remain vigilant and sustain the levels of research that will improve our understanding of the causes and nature of rugby injuries. Using this knowledge and working to ensure best practice continues to be present and consistent in all club and international teams will enable us to continue this downward trend in rates of injury.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON – FEBRUARY 02: England team doctor, Simon Kemp signals to the bench for a stretcher to carry off the injured Mike Tindall during the RBS Six Nations Championship match between England and Wales at Twickenham on February 2, 2008 in London, England. Mike Tindall was later admitted to hospital wiith a bruised liver. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) “On behalf of the group I would like to thank the doctors, physiotherapists and strength and conditioning staff at all the clubs and those involved with the England teams for their support in producing the data contained in this report.”England Rugby Head Coach Martin Johnson CBE said: “I am encouraged by the results of the latest injury audit and the reduction in both the likelihood and severity of injury.“Investment in the injury audit has been crucial, providing the game in England with a robust, clinical programme of research that allows the kind of accurate assessment of the injury risk involved in training for and playing elite rugby union that no other country can replicate.”Phil Winstanley, Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby, added: “The reduction in injury rates shown in the latest audit is encouraging, however the value is in the ongoing analysis of data and the changes that can inform. England team doctor Simon KempTHE ANNUAL injury audit by Premiership Rugby, the Rugby Players’ Association and the Rugby Football Union shows a 20% reduction in the likelihood of sustaining a match injury in season 2009-10 compared with the previous season. There was also a reduction in the severity of each injury from 23 days to 22 days and as a result a commensurate reduction in the total number of days absent due to injury of 26%.The data is contained in the seventh England Rugby Premiership Training & Injury Audit 2009-10 presented and accepted by the Professional Game Board on January 20. The injury audit has been conducted since the 2002-3 season and is the largest continuous study of injuries in world rugby.An injury is defined in the study as ‘any injury that prevents a player from taking a full part in all training activities typically planned for that day and/or match play for more than 24 hours’.Data was gathered from all registered Premiership Rugby players and covered training and playing in all the major competitions. Data was also gathered from the elite England team, but due to the relatively low number of matches played, the main body of the audit is based on data gathered from the Premiership Rugby clubs.Key findings:636 match injuries at Premiership Rugby clubs were reported in 2009-10; an average of 1.6 injuries per match leading to an average absence from playing and training of 22 daysThe likelihood of sustaining an injury dropped from 100 injuries per 1,000 hours in 2008-9 to 80 injuries per 1,000 hours in 2009-10Small decrease in the number of knee Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries, which had significantly affected the figures in 2008-9, but injuries fell across all levels of severityReduced likelihood and reduced severity meant that the average days’ absence per club, per match, fell from 46 days in 2008-9 to 34 days in 2009-10, a reduction of 26%Largest drop seen in the incidence of recurrence of injury. Days absence per 1,000 hours due to recurrence of an injury dropped from 485 in 2008-9 to 207 in 2009-10, a decrease of 43% and reported as “a marker of the completeness of rehabilitation by Premiership Rugby and England medical and conditioning staff and a very encouraging trend”Dr. Simon Kemp, RFU Head of Sports Medicine and Chair of the England Rugby Premiership Injury and Training Audit Steering Group that produced the report, said: “The data contained in the latest report shows a welcome reduction in the likelihood of match injuries and in that regard is much closer to the results of previous years.“There was a reduction in the severity of injuries across all categories and a marked reduction in the recurrence of match injuries. That suggests a more complete and effective rehabilitation of all injuries by club and England medics.last_img read more

US Navy Celebrates 112th Submarine Birthday in Tokyo

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Celebrates 112th Submarine Birthday in Tokyo April 23, 2012 View post tag: Naval View post tag: Birthday View post tag: Tokyo View post tag: 112th View post tag: US Share this article View post tag: celebrates View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic Training & Education More than 300 Sailors, spouses and their guests gathered in celebration of the 112th Submarine Birthday Ball held at the New Sanno Hotel in Tokyo April 20.Rear Adm. Phillip G. Sawyer, commander, Submarine Group (COMSUBGRU) 7, Commander Task Force (CTF) 54/74, hosted the event for Yokosuka’s submarine community, and submariner counterparts from the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force.Adm. Kirkland H. Donald, director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion, delivered remarks as guest speaker. Donald praised the submariners for their achievements and thanked them for all their support.“I am proud to say that the United States and Kaijo Jieitai [JMSDF] submarine forces represented here tonight are writing the Submarine Forces’ legacy each day,” Donald said. “Together we support peace and stability in this region through joint classroom training, torpedo firing exercises, and anti-submarine warfare exercises.”Donald emphasized the achievements and sacrifices of individuals and commands associated with the U.S. and JMSDF submarine forces.COMSUBGRU 7 is comprised of submarines and submarine tenders forward deployed to the Western Pacific and Central command regions. U.S. submarines visit several ports in Japan.Crew members from Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Columbus (SSN 762) attended the birthday ball, while enjoying a port visit as part of their deployment to the Western Pacific. “We are honored to be able to share the U.S. Submarine birthday with our fellow Japanese submariners,” said Cmdr. Dave Youtt, commanding officer of Columbus. “More than half of our crew is attending the ball, and I’m sure they will all have fond memories of celebrating our submarine heritage together in Tokyo.”Electrician’s Mate 2nd Class (SU) Brandon C. McKee, of USS Columbus, provided another highlight of the night when he accepted his submarine warfare insignia in front of his friends and other attendees.“This Submarine Birthday Ball is my first ball since joining the Submarine Force, and it is really a memorable day for me,” said McKee. “I can’t think of a better day to become a qualified Submariner!”Also known as “dolphins,” the submarine warfare pin is worn by both officers and enlisted who have passed proficiency tests for all systems aboard a submarine. As the most junior Sailor to earn the insignia, McKee assisted Donald and retired World War II submariner Charlie Brown in cutting the ceremonial birthday cake.The oldest qualified submariner in attendance, Brown, 88, served 20 years as a cook in the Navy, including six war patrols in the Pacific Theater where he was responsible for the kitchen and feeding the men onboard his submarines.The submarine ball commemorates the anniversary of the U.S. Navy’s Submarine Force. The Navy purchased John Philip Holland’s revolutionary submarine April 11,1900 and renamed it the USS Holland (SS-1), America’s first commissioned submarine. Since then, submariners have been patrolling the depths of oceans, taking the fight to enemies and providing maritime security around the world.[mappress]Navaltoday Staff, April 23, 2012; Image: navy US Navy Celebrates 112th Submarine Birthday in Tokyo View post tag: submarinelast_img read more

JCRs clash with colleges over high rent hikes

first_imgColleges have been experiencing clashes between administrators and students as annual rent negotiations have begun.Colleges have been claiming that their endowments are not sustainable in the long run and in the current economic climate interest on these has been minimal. They have sought to recoup their losses from students instead.OUSU Rent and Accommodation officer Jamie Susskind argued: “There is a certain hypocrisy in the fact that when the OCCI (Oxford Colleges Cost Index) is high, colleges insist upon using it, but when it is lower (like this year) they suddenly decide it’s an inadequate measure of inflation. Students have the right to feel hard done by in colleges where this is the case.”At Merton, many students expressed dissatisfaction with the new rates. 4 years ago, rent increases were negotiated to be increased by 12%, to be implemented in the coming year.Alistair Haggerty, JCR President commented “The rent increase was negotiated four years ago, so current students were not consulted. The JCR is displeased at the increase. We hope that in the future rent changes will be decided one year before the proposed implementation.”Hertford also saw high rent increases. JCR president Will Hartshaw said he had negotiated the college down from a 10% increase over two years in real terms to the same increase over three years.He was uncertain whether students felt this concession was enough and said, “I need to take this back to the JCR and get their opinions.”At other colleges, however, students said they were happy with the way negotiations had progressed.Negotiations progressed well at wealthy Magdalen College. According to JCR President Laurence Mills, rent was given top priority in the “JCR Agenda”, which was presented to the President, Home Bursar and the Deans.“The conclusion of our negotiations with college meant that our rent has only gone up by 2.24% for the coming year. We will be working during this term and over the vac, and report back in Michaelmas. The changes that we recommend will be implemented from October 2010.”“All in all, the college has been open to working with us in a constructive fashion. In addition to this, only having our rent go up by 2.24% in the next year is a huge bonus.”The OCCI (Oxford Colleges’ Cost Index) anticipates that college costs will go up by 2.24% this year. However, the previous year’s figures (for 2007/08) were given as 3.91% last year, but have since been revised upwards to 5.92%. Given economics pressures, the figure for this year could also go up.According to OUSU figures, many colleges run annual deficits of over £1 million per year.last_img read more

Press release: Demonstration road gifted to rugby club for car parking

first_imgAlison Chambers, head teacher at English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy, said: General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer. Crowds gathered to watch Highways England and the emergency services act out ‘incident responses’ on the newly-created road which has now been handed over to Oakham Rugby Club.Ten-year-old pupils Lilly Gerstner and Sophia Rice created winning posters to net the prize for their school and gift vouchers for themselves.Local schools were visited by experts from East Midlands Asset Delivery (EMAD) – which is made up of Highways England and 22 partners including nmcn and Kier – in the run-up to the show.Pupils between the ages of eight and 11 were helped to plan, design and build their own road bridges as well as learning about the work that Highways England does.They were invited to design a poster reflecting that work with some of the best examples displayed in the Highways England marquee at the show on Sunday (2 June) where the winner was announced.As well as the demonstrations, Highways England hosted a range of displays and activities at the Rutland County Show, one of the oldest events of its kind in the country.Visitors were able to see up close, and even sit inside, a number of Highways England’s vehicles ranging from the huge gritters and construction machinery to safety and traffic officers’ vehicles, as well as getting to chat to traffic officers.On display in the marquee were exhibitions covering the work of Highways England, details of careers in the business and a focus on some of the safety campaigns now running.A centrepiece was the environmental stand with wildlife and small creatures to interact with. There were also lots of activities for children including a treasure hunt and the chance to operate one of our robots used for line painting.Visitors were full of praise for the Highways England displays, recording such comments as:“It was our favourite bit of the whole show, spent two hours here.”“It was all very interesting. I was surprised at how much goes into maintaining the road network.” We are thrilled to have won the competition set up by Highways England. All the children found the workshop interesting and informative, making them want to become engineers of the future. We would definitely like to invite the team back in again to our school. We had an incredible response and some lovely feedback from the crowds of people who came along to see exactly what Highways England does. The marquee was busy all day with families and visitors learning about our varied role and responsibilities as well as taking on board our important safety messages. It was a privilege to be part of the show and we wanted to give something back to the community. We are delighted that the demonstration road will provide the rugby club with some welcome car park spaces. We would also like to thank all the children who took part in our poster competition, there were some fantastic entries and I look forward to finding out what tasks English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy have lined up for our team.center_img Andrew Nelson, CEO of Rutland Agricultural Society, said: It was a great privilege to be able to host EMAD at the Rutland Show. They added an exciting new dynamic to the event. I think few of us realise how complex it is to manage the repair and maintenance of our highways. Thank you very much for all your help and support and leaving us with a brilliant legacy of an additional car park.

BSA calls for fairer coffee shop tax

first_imgThe Beverage Standards Association (BSA) has hit out at Starbucks and other multinational coffee shop chains that it claims are avoiding paying tax in the UK.The representative body for the beverage industry is calling for fairer tax rules for its members, including small independent coffee shop businesses, after Starbucks hit the headlines this month for not paying UK corporation tax in the last year.In a special report by Reuters it was discovered that the international coffee shop giant had only paid £8.6m in taxes on its UK sales since 1998, despite turning over more than £3bn during the period.Martyn Herriott, chairman of the BSA, said: “Multinationals like Starbucks take advantage of the fact that UK corporate tax is levied on profits, not sales. They are taking the HM Revenue & Customs, small business tax payers and the independent coffee shop for a ride. Our members serve Fairtrade beverages – what about fair tax?“Following the lead of the Federation of Small Businesses we ask that the government follows two principles when making tax policy – that it is constant and stable and that it is competitive, so that it encourages investment and trade in the UK.”Barry Cook, owner of Cafelicious in Swindon and a BSA member, said: “Technically it’s legal for these US multinationals not to pay tax, but morally it’s completely wrong. It’s conning the British system. None of us want to pay tax, but we do. It’s very unfair that they do this. It’s a morally incorrect way of doing business.“As a small business, we get no assistance with business rates and we have to pay the full whack of tax. We have other issues to contend with – big coffee chains operating units that run at a loss to keep out competition, and opening units without planning permission. The rest of us have to stick to the rules. Why shouldn’t they?”last_img read more
