CROWD

33,394 at Etihad Stadium.

On a night North Melbourne honoured their 1977 premiership heroes, the grim reality of just how far the Kangaroos have fallen this season was laid bare, as they were thumped by a Collingwood outfit that is coming home with a wet sail.

The Roos snapped their seven-match losing streak last weekend against Melbourne, but that looks very much the exception after one of the most uninspiring performances by any AFL side in 2017.

It was made that much worse when North’s Coleman Medal fancy Ben Brown was carted off Etihad Stadium late in the second quarter after having his head slammed into the ground in a tackle by Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy.

The Pies big man will face scrutiny from the match review panel for the incident, which was reminiscent of one at the same venue a week ago, for which Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield was suspended.

Grundy pinned Brown’s arms as the Roo tried to dispose of the ball on the wing. Brown got rid of the ball as he was being taken to ground, but was not released by Grundy, his head thudding into the turf.

Brown looked to be knocked out as soon as he hit the ground, and it took more than five minutes for him to be stretchered off the arena.

North could also lose Ben Cunnington, with the midfielder likely to be assessed for a head-high bump that left Pies veteran Tyson Goldsack dazed.

The victory means Collingwood have three wins plus a draw against ladder-leaders Adelaide from their last four starts. Whether it is incumbent Nathan Buckley or someone else coaching the Pies next year, there is clearly plenty to work with.

There had been considerable public discussion during the week about the impact Daniel Wells was having at the Magpies, but bar a rousing goal late in the third quarter he had little effect on the match, with a heavily strapped quad a sign he might not have been fully fit against his former side. The Pies didn’t need him though, and nor did they miss skipper Scott Pendlebury. Instead Adam Treloar, Taylor Adams and Jordan De Goey ran riot through the midfield after quarter-time.

That’s not to say it was a vintage Magpies showing. They were just as culpable as the Roos in an error-riddled first quarter that served to remind you that this was 16th playing 13th. Wells started on the bench but even a player of his class was not immune to turning the ball over, with his first kick going straight to Cunnington – the North fans’ boos quickly turning to cheers.

The Pies appeared to have settled the better when Josh Thomas and Alex Fasolo kicked the first two goals of the game, but North remained well within striking distance after Lynden Dunn coughed it up deep in defence, gifting an opportunity to young Roo Declan Mountford, who duly converted.

The Pies did however click into gear in the second term, with their audacious decision making paying off.

Brayden Maynard’s run was a highlight, De Goey was again showing his class, and Darcy Moore looked threatening up forward.

The Pies kicked the only three goals of the quarter, not that North didn’t have chances. But, remarkably, despite getting the ball over the top of Collingwood’s press several times, the Roos repeatedly blew it inside 50, with Shaun Higgins, Cunnington and Shaun Atley all wasteful.

The poor ball use was overshadowed however by the Brown-Grundy incident, followed moments later by a clash between Jack Ziebell and Matt Scharenberg from which the North captain came off worse for wear. Then Levi Greenwood hobbled off with a suspected knee injury, and the injury list was threatening to challenge the goal tally for length.

Just as he did in the first half, Thomas kicked the first goal of the second half as well, and when Tom Phillips put one through from the pocket there was surely no way back for the Roos – who had kicked just one goal in more than a half, and were missing their best forward. Bereft of options, North sent their banged-up skipper to full-forward, where he kicked five goals. All of them however, came well after the game was lost.

Country Victorian tyre dump sold to Panama internet marketing company

09.14.2019, Comments Off on Country Victorian tyre dump sold to Panama internet marketing company, 成都夜生活, by .

An aerial shot from 2014 of the Stawell tyre dump, which holds around 9 million tyres. Photo: Boomerang AllianceA shadowy offshore internet marketing company based in the tax haven of Panama now has control of a toxic dump of 9 million used tyres considered a huge fire risk in the state’s west.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

The notorious Stawell tyre stockpile, one of the world’s biggest, has largely sat dormant for nearly a decade, despite major environmental concerns and repeated orders for it to be cleaned up.

Anger in the community has reached boiling point, as repeated inaction finally led the Environment Protection Authority last week to declare it would take charge of the dump unless the fire danger was reduced. If fully ignited, it could burn for months.

The previous owner had promised residents that it would rid the country town of the dangerous mass of rubber using a controversial recycling process known as pyrolysis, which involves breaking down the tyres at high temperatures.

However that plan has not reached fruition and with the threat of action looming, Fairfax Media can reveal that ownership of the site has been transferred in recent months to an overseas company known as “Internet Marketing Solutions Corp”.

From Stawell to PanamaA title search shows the transfer of the Saleyards Road property by the previous owner Used Tyre Recycling Corporation was completed on June 8.

No ACN or n address is listed for Internet Marketing Solutions Corp on the land title. The company is based in the central American country of Panama.

Panama company records show Internet Marketing Solutions Corp was registered in 2010 as a “sociedad anonima” or anonymous society, a form of private corporation which protects the identity of shareholders.

Directors listed on the company’s documents are linked to hundreds of other entities in Panama.

The sole director of the Used Tyre Recycling Corporation, Matthew Starr, said he was not connected with Internet Marketing Solutions Corp in any way and had completed the deal in New York City earlier this year.

Internet Marketing Solutions Corp bought the dump because they wanted to focus on developing rubber-based products, he said.

“I have never been to Panama and can’t speak or understand any Spanish,” he said.

It appears no money changed hands. On the land title, the property was transferred as a “desire to make a gift”.

Dr Starr said the deal was backended, with an agreement that his company would recycle Internet Marketing Solutions Corp’s tyres at a plant still planned for a neighbouring property.

‘They don’t care’Stawell resident Allan Cooper, 65, said the community had been worried about the tyre stockpile for at least 10 years, after the site’s then-owner Motorway went bust in 2008.

He lives on Longfield Street, about one kilometre away from the dump, and had major concerns about the possibility of the town being blanketed with toxic smoke if it were to go up in flames.

“If it started the whole town would be polluted with smoke,” he said. “There’s no way known you could get everybody out that quickly and it won’t take long to start up once it goes.”

Mr Cooper said the town was sick of the buckpassing that had taken place in recent years between the owners, the EPA, local council and state government, and just wanted something done.

“If it was in Melton, closer to Melbourne, they’d be doing something about,” he said. “They would have that much money poking at it. But they don’t care.”

Environmental groups have previously described the dump as a “Hazelwood waiting to happen”. The CFA has assessed the site as a “very high fire” risk, with the potential for catastrophic consequences for the town of Stawell.

Nine million tyresEnvironmental group Boomerang Alliance, which has advocated for stricter controls on tyre dumping, estimated there were 9 million tyres in the stockpile.

“Every year it stays there, the greater the chance of a massive fire,” said Boomerang Alliance director Jeff Angel.

Lax regulation had allowed the stockpile to grow, he said, as unscrupulous collectors undercut legitimate recyclers with lower rates and then dumped the tyres without fear of reprisal.

He said the problem was improving as state governments tightened their laws, while major tyre brands also had begun sending their used tyres to genuine recyclers.

“However, we’ve got this enormous legacy problem at Stawell,” he said.

EPA chief executive Nial Finegan said there was a long history with Used Tyre Recycling Corporation trying to get them to comply with various notices.

The EPA would seek to recover costs from the owners if it had to take control of the dump and reduce the risk, he said. The current owners have until Wednesday to explain why the EPA shouldn’t take charge.

“If the Environment Protection Authority is stepping in there is a real risk to the community,” he said.

Dr Starr said his company had stopped owning the dump on March 30, before the EPA had slapped the tyre yard with three statutory demands.

Any delays were caused by documentation having to be translated between Spanish and English and then approved, he said.

The company had previously tried to get a permit for a pyrolysis tyre recycling plant but claimed to be slowed down by red tape.

Dr Starr said the company had spent large amounts of money and had improved the site substantially since taking over in 2015.

“It appears that the EPA are overreacting at Stawell given the recent paper recycling dump fire in Coolaroo that took weeks to put out,” he said.

American denies Bolt golden end to solo career – then bows to him

09.14.2019, Comments Off on American denies Bolt golden end to solo career – then bows to him, 成都夜生活, by .

It should never have come to this. The perfect athlete has left his imperfect sport, in the most imperfect of ways to the least perfect athlete.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

The world’s greatest sprinter, Usain Bolt, was beaten in his last race by twice banned drug cheat Justin Gatlin, his pantomime rival.

Bolt was allowed to be beaten … just not by Gatlin. The best the sport has seen should not leave that sport beaten at the last by a cheat. It was OK for him to be beaten – he was in fact, as Christian Coleman also beat him over the line – just not by someone who embodied the worst of the sport.

It should never have come to this because Gatlin – the new 100m world champion – should not have been racing. Twice banned for drugs he should have been banned for life for his cheating.

In 2001, Gatlin was banned for two years after testing positive for an amphetamine found in attention deficit disorder (ADD) medicine. That suspension was later cut to a year.

In 2005, he won the 100m world championship gold, then a year later was banned again, this time for eight years after testing positive for testosterone. The ban was halved because he co-operated with authorities.

The new IAAF head Seb Coe admitted previously to being “queasy” at the thought of an athlete who’d served serious doping bans winning gold and felt life should mean life for dopers.

Today Coe should feel sick. When he made those comments he could still rely on Bolt to deflect attention from the sport’s dirty open secret that dopers are commonplace.

This time there is no distraction or hiding from it. Gatlin, the villainous counterpoint to Bolt, has beaten him. The Roadrunner has been caught, Coyote has won.

The English crowd booed and hissed Gatlin each time he stepped on the track. Gatlin sought to be dignified and above the boos, which was quite some feat to project grace and dignity for actions that lacked both and for which there has been no remorse.

Bolt was more conciliatory.

“I told him congrats and well done,” he added. “He’s done his time over the years. Tonight he was the better man.” Ahem, faster yes, better?

Bolt was beaten by a better and faster man on the night – Christian Coleman. Bolt was beaten to the line by Gatlin and Coleman and so had to accept bronze, a colour it is doubtful he was aware medals came in.

Gatlin ran 9.92s, Coleman 9.94s and Bolt 9.95s. After a slow start the Jamaican ran out of track to fold in the two Americans.

“I’ve proved to the world I’m one of the greatest athletes,” said Bolt. “I’ve done my part as an athlete, to uplift the sport and show it’s getting better. I did my best.”

Bolt had won everything at a major meet since 2008 other than on those occasions such as in 2011 when he beat himself when he false started. He had never been beaten over this distance in an open field in a world championships or Olympics.

So that’s good bye. Usain Bolt has run his last individual race.

What does life look like after Bolt? Does the new world champion return the sport to its grubby past and to a narrative where performances were punctured like needle pricks with stories of doping and corruption.

Maybe the new king of the sport is South African long sprint champ Wayde Van Neikerk. He could yet achieve things like Bolt and so be the torch bearer of his sport.

Van Niekerk has the athletic capacity but to compare Bolt to Van Neikerk is to compare Shane Warne to Glenn McGrath. Both were great but one thrilled, entertained and transcended, the other was Glenn McGrath.

The sport will be different without Bolt because it was different before him.

The reason he will not be readily replaced is he was different from all others and that was not just about his speed.

Bolt stood above his sport.
