Luxury names sign for One Hyde Park

first_img whatsapp Luxury names sign for One Hyde Park KCS-content Tags: NULL Sunday 7 November 2010 8:37 pm Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp OPULENT brands Rolex and Chanel are on the verge of signing a deal to take the final two shops at One Hyde Park, the £1bn London development by Nick and Christian Candy.British watchmaker Rolex is believed to have signed for the second retail space in the development, which is slated as London’s most expensive residential complex.Parisian fashion house Chanel is also on the verge of signing a lease for the third and final spot in the luxurious development.Seven other possible tenants were reportedly in talks with the Candy Brothers over leasing the retail lots, though the two brands are thought to have secured a deal according to reports yesterday.The pair join high-performance car manufacturer McLaren, which snapped-up the first of the three retail lots at the Knightsbridge development for its new flagship showroom in August.The Formula 1 racing giant will open at the Hyde Park site in time for the launch of its new McLaren MP4-12C next spring, the first in the Woking-based company’s new range of high-performance sports cars.The development combines residential and retail properties, including 86 apartments starting at around £20m each. A penthouse in the complex was sold for a record-breaking £140m in August, making it the most expensive residential property in Britain.The glamorous complex is designed by Lord Rogers’ firm Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners and features four futuristic pavilions, interlinked by lobbies, lift shafts and stairwells, and looks out over Hyde Park’s famous Serpentine lake.Private lifts in the apartments will contain eye scanners to keep outsiders from accessing residential floors, and the building has been constructed from as many as 15 types of stone from as far away as Egypt and China.The Candy brothers are also known for their bid to redevelop the Chelsea Barracks. The bid collapsed after the Prince of Wales allegedly raised architectural objections with their Qatari partners.

Royston Wild | Saturday, 18th April, 2020 | More on: CNA You might think that Centrica (LSE: CNA) would be a brilliantly-defensive FTSE 100 share to buy today. It’s safe to say that the essential services of utilities providers gives them better earnings visibility than most other shares in these troubled times. Unfortunately the British Gas owner can enjoy no such luxury.Why? Well customers continue to leave it in whopping great numbers in search of a better deal. Latest data from Energy UK showed that more than 1m individuals had changed their energy supplier in January and February. This was up 20% from the same period in 2019.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The trade association’s data showed that growth in the numbers switching was highest in February too. Then a mammoth 558,836 customers changed their provider, a 23% year-on-year rise. Some 34% of all switchers in February went from one of the nation’s largest suppliers like Centrica to one of the small- or mid-tier operators.Under pressureThere have been a number of high-profile casualties in the energy supply market of late. But there’s still a glut of cheap, independent suppliers to pull profits away from the FTSE 100 share’s British Gas unit.As Energy UK head Audrey Gallacher comments: “This a significant increase in switching numbers… [It] shows that increasing numbers of consumers take advantage of the competitive and innovative services on offer by around 60 suppliers.”The coronavirus crisis could well have boosted the number of switchers in more recent weeks too. With millions of furloughed workers now on reduced pay, and economic uncertainty rising, it’s likely that the number of people hunting for a better deal on their energy and gas has risen.You should expect the volumes of households leaving British Gas to remain elevated as a painful recession looms. An Official for National Statistics study shows that more than one in five adults are already reporting a hit to their household finances following the Covid-19 breakout. And almost half of adults expect their finances to deteriorate over the next 12 months.Avoid this FTSE 100 shareBut of course, Centrica’s problems aren’t confined to its retail division. Falling Brent prices will hit adjusted operating cash flows at its Upstream division by around £100m, it advised recently. But this is not all that’s been plaguing the FTSE 100 stock.The planned sales of Spirit Energy and its nuclear asset, meanwhile, have had to be paused “until financial and commodity markets have settled,” it said. To complete the run of bad news, Centrica has also endured additional power outages at its Dungeness B and Hinkley Point B nuclear plants.Centrica comes pretty cheap right now, its share price commanding a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of below 5 times. The fallen energy giant is tipped to hit fresh record lows around 32p this month. There’s no reason to expect it to break out of its wretched tailspin either.

Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit an Event Listing Comments are closed. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Youth Minister Lorton, VA [Anglican Communion News Service] Churches in India’s southern Kerala state have given a mixed response to government proposals for a total prohibition of alcohol within 10 years.While Christian leaders have welcomed the ban, which will be gradually phased in over the next decade, some are concerned at calls for Communion wine to be included.Bishop Dharmaraj Rasalam of the Church of South India’s South Kerala diocese, told the Financial Times, “There are so many drunkards in our society – it is a grave concern among the people. It is very good to abolish alcohol from this land. They cannot stop it in a day, a week or a month, but the church is supporting the government to get rid of all these things.”However, there have been calls from some quarters for the church to come under the ban and replace all its Communion wine with non-alcoholic substitutes.ucanews.com reported that Vellapally Natesan, general secretary of the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam, a Hindu political group, demanded the government cancel 23 licenses issued to Roman Catholic dioceses, religious orders and other Christian groups to produce Mass wine.The Press Trust of India (PTI) reported that Archbishop Francis Kallarackal of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Verapolyhad earlier stated that wine was integral to mass being con-celebrated by Christians all over the world and so could not be banned.Syro Malabar Church spokesperson Father Paul Thelekat told PTI, “No church uses anything other than wine. We will continue the tradition,” he said.Thomas K Oommen, bishop of the Central Kerala diocese of the Church of South India (CSI), told the New Indian Express that “it [Communion with wine] will remain unchanged until the world ends,” adding that calling for Communion wine to be included in the alcohol ban was not a proper interpretation of a decision “that could contribute to the cultural advancement of society.”However, Bishop Philiphose Mar Chrysostom of the indigenous Mar Thoma Syrian Church told ucanews.com, “Churches should think about using grape water, as had been the practice in the past, instead of wine.”Speaking to the media on Monday, V M Sudheeran, president of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), said the call to ban wine in churches was not appropriate considering it had been part of centuries-old ritual and tradition.“It is for the Christian church to think over whether liquor should be banned. The interference of external forces is not proper.”Keralans consume the highest amount of alcohol of any state in India and temperance groups have been pressing for a total ban to address a alcohol abuse problem across the state.There are those who have criticized the move, however, saying that it will be a very bad decision for the tourist industry in a state that welcomes around 800,000 visitors a year.

Vimto) and the practice is still continuing.Neither the visiting Bishops or the stationed priests have any concern over it. So what is there special only in Kerala or in India.I feel that the controversy lies in our controvert approach in everything.Any non alcoholic drink if decided to be used for the Holy sacrament will suffice. Once it is consecrated and taken by faith in remembrance of our Lords Sacrifice on the cross will have the same spiritual effect.Regards Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector Columbus, GA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Director of Music Morristown, NJ TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Albany, NY Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Bath, NC Rector Collierville, TN August 29, 2014 at 11:14 am It is foolish to think that “banning” liquor will in any way stop it.

Foto de la Diócesis de Maryland, vía Facebook.[Episcopal News Service] Política y religión. Son los temas de los que no se supone que uno hable si quiere evitar una explosión apasionada.Pero en el clima político intensamente polarizado de la actualidad, donde los debates políticos con frecuencia giran en torno a valores y a cómo cada lado ve el papel del gobierno en las vidas de los estadounidenses, esos debates están siendo influidos por personas que se pronuncian como cristianos, desde evangélicos a episcopales, e incluso el papa Francisco.La participación episcopal en causas y demostraciones políticas ha aumentado en los últimos ocho meses. Episcopales se unieron a millones de personas a través del país el 21 de enero para participar en la Marcha de las Mujeres y otras manifestaciones afines. Varios centenares participaron en una Marcha por los Refugiados el sábado 4 de marzo en Baltimore, una de las varias ciudades donde tuvieron lugar manifestaciones semejantes. Y el 10 de marzo, algunos líderes episcopales se unieron a otros activistas en Washington, D.C., para una marcha en apoyo de la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta en su lucha contra un oleoducto en Dakota del Norte que la tribu dice que amenaza su agua potable y sus tratados territoriales.Episcopales de Minnesota hicieron acto de presencia frente el capitolio estatal en San Pablo en una de las aproximadamente 600 “marchas hermanas” del 21 de enero. Foto de LeeAnne WatkinsEn congregaciones episcopales más progresistas, la conversación acerca de un “movimiento de Jesús” dirigido por la Iglesia puede coincidir con un continuo activismo político. Pero no todo el mundo cree que las protestas y otras formas de activismo se derivan de manera fácil y natural de Jesús, la historia de la Iglesia y la teología.“Una protesta es un instrumento contundente” le dijo Garwood Anderson, profesor de Nuevo Testamento en el Seminario Teológico Nashotah House en Wisconsin,  Episcopal News Service. “Una protesta no estimula realmente un discurso matizado. Estimula un pensamiento simplista”.Anderson dijo que él aun cree que puede haber una manera que merezca la pena de hacer causa común con otros, de llamar la atención de problemas y de satisfacer nuestro “deseo de no consentir pasivamente con cosas que creemos injustas” y él personalmente siente simpatía por algunos de los debates que las recientes protestas políticas han suscitado nacionalmente.Pero se muestra cauteloso de mezclar las enseñanzas cristianas con mensajes políticos. Se corre el riesgo de distorsionar el significado de esas enseñanzas, apuntó Anderson. Si como cristianos nos sumamos indiscriminadamente a las protestas políticas, podemos perder de vista “lo que es distintiva y exclusivamente cristiano” respecto a nuestro activismo político, tal como las enseñanzas de Jesús en el Sermón del Monte y las Bienaventuranzas.¿Puede ser la protesta una expresión correcta de la fe de uno? En la trayectoria cristiana, ¿existe el riesgo de comprometerse demasiado profundamente con el dominio secular? ¿Cómo sabemos cuando es apropiado hablar en el nombre de Jesús? Diversas congregaciones en Estados Unidos están lidiando con estas interrogantes.Esa diversidad en la Iglesia es parte de lo que atrae a la Rda. Noelle York-Simmons, rectora de la iglesia de Cristo [Christ Church] en Alexandria.“Uno puede encontrar un lugar que responda a sus necesidades espirituales o políticas, teológicas o sociales, o a todas ellas”, afirmó.York-Simmons vio la “idiosincrasia” de su parroquia en acción con la decisión de la junta parroquial a principios de febrero de publicar una declaración en la que se oponía a la supremacía blanca, respuesta a un clamor que se produjo en Alexandria luego que un prominente nacionalista blanco, Richard Spencer, se mudara en el barrio y abriera una tienda.De izquierda a derecha, David Hoover, William Roberts y la Rda. Heather VanDeventer representan a la iglesia de Cristo en Alexandria en una protesta el 29 de enero frente a la casa donde el nacionalista blanco Richard Spencer abrió recientemente una tienda.Algunos miembros de la congregación también han participado en manifestaciones pacíficas frente al nuevo cuartel general de Spencer, y la congregación ocasionalmente ha ayudado a movilizar a miembros para protestar. Su mensaje: “Nuestra ciudad y nuestro barrio no son lugares que van a permitir tranquilamente que ese tipo de odio se encone y viva en nuestra área”, dijo York-Simmons.Ella ve este tipo de activismo como parte de ser cristiano, no lo contrario.“Si vamos a seguir nuestros votos bautismales, luego vamos a tener que salirle al paso, ocasionalmente, a las injusticias que vemos”, afirmó.Scott Bader-Saye, profesor de ética cristiana en el Seminario del Sudoeste en Austin, Texas, le dijo a Episcopal News Service que él intenta conseguir que los estudiantes piensen en lo que significa desarrollarse como un ser humano creado a imagen de Dios, y cree que “ser espiritual a la manera de Jesús es comprometerse con lo que creemos de las cuestiones políticas actuales”.Nuestras respuestas a esas cuestiones deben típicamente configurarse por quienes somos como cristianos, afirmó, y espiritualmente también debe configurar los medios que usamos para procurar esos fines. Bader-Saye señaló la adhesión de Martin Luther King Jr. a la protesta no violenta como un ejemplo de una táctica determinada por su fe cristiana.Desde la elección del presidente Donald Trump, Bader-Saye ve aún más razones para que los episcopales se expresen sobre los problemas de actualidad, al tiempo que ellos y la Iglesia Episcopal ponen a prueba la urgencia de este momento por un compromiso espiritual y político.“Ahora mismo, siento que si una reunión de la Iglesia no se percibe como un acto de resistencia, estamos haciendo algo mal”, dijo él.Sobran ejemplos de problemas políticos asumidos recientemente por la Iglesia Episcopal: reasentamiento de refugiados, inmigración, [protesta de la tribu sioux] de Roca Enhiesta, reforma de la atención sanitaria —incluso si EE.UU. debería mudar su embajada en Israel a Jerusalén, a lo cual la Red Episcopal de Política Pública se opuso en una alerta política el 14 de febrero.Lo que Bader-Saye llama “protesta colectiva”, como opuesta a la actividad política de individuos episcopales, es orientada por las resoluciones aprobadas por la Convención General. Le corresponde al Obispo Primado, a la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y al Consejo Ejecutivo determinar cómo tal orientación debe conformar la posición de la Iglesia sobre los temas de actualidad.En un ejemplo reciente, el obispo primado Michael Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings fueron los primeros signatarios de un informe amistoso presentado el 2 de marzo por 1.800 clérigos y líderes religiosos en un caso ante el Tribunal Supremo de EE.UU. que implicaba las normas sobre el uso de baños públicos para transexuales. El 6 de marzo, el tribunal dio a conocer que no juzgaría el caso, un revés para el adolescente transexual cuyo reclamo apoyaban Curry y Jennings.El Rdo. Michael Battle, profesor de Iglesia y sociedad en el Seminario Teológico General, ve los recientes ejemplos de activismo episcopal como parte de un cambio profundo en la Iglesia desde que llegó por primera vez a América en la era colonial.“La Iglesia Episcopal ha pasado de ser la Iglesia de la clase dirigente a una Iglesia de activismo social”, afirmó él, identificando el año 2003 y la ordenación de Gene Robinson, el primer obispo [abiertamente] homosexual, como un punto de inflexión clave.Según cambia la perspectiva de la Iglesia, de una [institución] de poder a una que aboga por los que no tienen poder, Battle ve paralelos con la Iglesia negra como institución al servicio de los oprimidos.“Si formas parte de los grupos que están siendo victimizados y no están en el poder, luego hay otra manera completamente distinta de entender la Iglesia”, subrayó.Battle se vio influido por el tiempo que prestó servicios en Sudáfrica con el arzobispo Desmond Tutu a principios de los años 90. Tutu era políticamente franco en su oposición al apartheid, pero Battle dijo que él también desplegaba un cristianismo profundo que conformaba todo lo que hacía en la esfera pública.“Siempre rezaba sus oraciones diariamente. Siempre conservó hábitos que lo mantenían afincado en Jesús”, dijo. Battle cree que hay mucho activismo que carece de ese tipo de profundidad espiritual, la cual puede trascender esta o aquella protesta.El valerse de esa profundidad espiritual como una fuente para las acciones de la Iglesia en el mundo está a la vanguardia de lo que Curry ve como el Movimiento de Jesús, y él no ha rehuido los problemas políticos y sociales. En septiembre, visitó el sitio de las protestas en [la reserva indígena de] Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock] en Dakota del Norte para mostrar la solidaridad de la Iglesia Episcopal con la tribu, a partir del llamado cristiano a defender la dignidad humana y la justicia medioambiental. Ha habido episcopales en las primeras filas de las manifestaciones allí desde agosto.El obispo primado Michael Curry de pie junto a la Autopista 1806 de Dakota del Norte el pasado 24 de septiembre para presenciar como los agentes de la fuerza pública llegan a un pequeño campamento de opositores al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas para arrestar a personas acusadas de quitar los carteles de “prohibido el paso” de los terrenos de una estancia cercana que había comprado recientemente la compañía constructora del oleoducto. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.“Siempre se nos presentan problemas e intereses en la esfera pública. Esa es la vida. Y nosotros los que seguimos en los caminos de Jesús debemos participar de lo público”, dijo él en comentarios al Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal el 8 de febrero. “Somos un pueblo encarnacional, lo cual significa que la Palabra se hizo carne y habitó entre nosotros. La manera en que uno participa de ese ambiente, y los problemas e intereses que surgen, eso se convierte en la cuestión decisiva”.“Llamándonos” a la oración y al testimonio público”Los valores cristianos también han aportado profundidad a Obispos Unidos contra la Violencia Armada, un grupo de 80 obispos episcopales que se ha arraigado y sigue persistiendo en su misión años después de que se creará luego de la masacre de la escuela de Newtown, Connecticut, en diciembre de 2012 y de otros tiroteos de gran relieve.El Rvdmo. Jim Curry era obispo sufragáneo de la Diócesis de Connecticut en el momento de la masacre de Newtown. Él y otros dos obispos de la diócesis quisieron hacer algo que convocara a los cristianos a un ministerio de oración, al tiempo que también diera un testimonio público sobre el problema de la violencia armada.La obispa Mariann Edgan Budde, de la Diócesis Episcopal de Washington, reza las oraciones de la primera estación del Via Crucis el 21 de marzo de 2013, en la Plaza Lafayette, en Washington, D.C. Junto a ella, de izquierda a derecha, James Curry, obispo sufragáneo de la Diócesis de Connecticut, y Ian Douglas, obispo de Connecticut. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Ellos organizaron un a Vía Crucis por el corazón de Washington, D.C., en marzo de 2013, durante la Semana Santa, añadiéndole un significado contemporáneo a la representación tradicional del camino de Jesús al Calvario y a la tumba. En la procesión participaron unos 400 episcopales, entre ellos 30 obispos.No fue una “protesta confrontacional, dijo Curry, pero llevo la tradición cristiana del Vía Crucis a la escena pública, para provocar una “solemne reflexión sobre el don de Jesús”, así como del “quebranto de nuestras vidas”.“Ese es el lugar de la Iglesia, llamándonos a la oración y al testimonio público”, dijo Curry, actualmente jubilado, a Episcopal News Service. “E hicimos eso desde lo profundo de nuestra propia tradición, pero con la esperanza de que la comunidad en general pueda ver en ese testimonio tanto esperanza como posibilidad”.Al igual que Battle, Jim Curry cree que la Iglesia Episcopal tuvo razón en incorporar más activismo social en su misión, una evolución que él remonta a los derechos civiles y a los movimientos antibélicos de los años 60 y 70. Vale la pena, afirmó, que la Iglesia se alce como un líder moral en cuestiones políticas, aunque ese activismo debe fundamentarse en la fe. Pero, advirtió él, “es responsabilidad de los líderes de la Iglesia no ir demasiado lejos al frente de la comunidad no sea que pierdan de vista su responsabilidad de ser pastores de todo el rebaño”.El activismo cristiano también ha suscitado diferentes opiniones respecto a cuán político fue Jesús. Eruditos bíblicos y teológicos tienden a convenir en que él fue una figura política, aunque la “política” en tiempos de Jesús significaba algo totalmente diferente de lo que significa hoy.“Es una suerte de anacronismo hablar de protesta en los tiempos bíblicos”, cuando los sistemas políticos no eran democráticos y no le daban cabida a la protesta tal como la conocemos hoy, dijo Bader-Saye, el profesor del Seminario del Sudoeste. Las protestas y el activismo político de hoy día tienen por objeto influir en la opinión pública, pero el objetivo último es influir en la manera en que los funcionarios electos votan sobre ciertos proyectos de leyes. Ese tipo de estructura de poder “simplemente no existía en tiempos de Jesús”.No obstante, las palabras y acciones de Jesús pueden verse como políticas, afirmó él, en la manera en que lo pusieron en conflicto con los poderes de su tiempo, como se ve en su viaje a Jerusalén al final de su vida. Bader-Saye ve ese viaje como análogo a algunas de las grandes marchas de protesta de nuestro tiempo, desde la marcha por los derechos civiles de Selma a Montgomery en 1965 a la Marcha de las Mujeres este año.“Jesús deliberadamente fue llevando su testimonio y su proclamación al lugar en que iba a ser oído por la gente que estaba en el poder”, explicó él.Pero Anderson, el profesor de Nashotah House, advierte a los cristianos políticamente activos que no esperen que Jesús ofrezca una precisa justificación espiritual a las causas políticas del presente.“Jesús tal como le conocemos en las Escrituras se convierten en una especie de talismán para causas con las que ya estamos comprometidos”, dijo Anderson, pero al leer implicaciones sociopolíticas en sus enseñanzas podemos estar oscureciendo su significado con un bagaje partidario.“A veces la participación en asuntos políticos desvirtúa en verdad el carácter distintivamente cristiano en pro de los fines políticos que procuramos”, dijo. ‘Participación basada en valores’El Obispo Primado pareció abordar esas preocupaciones en sus comentarios al Consejo Ejecutivo el 8 de febrero, al decir que la Iglesia Episcopal debe hacer más que “convertirse en otro grupo de interés”.“Participar en el nivel de los valores y los compromisos que tanto apreciamos, los cuales provienen de Jesús de Nazaret y de nuestra tradición como cristianos episcopales anglicanos… esa participación basada en valores no es simplemente un grupo de interés”, dijo Curry.Abordando el activismo de la Iglesia en los problemas del reasentamiento de refugiados y la inmigración, Curry invocó la parábola de Jesús del Buen Samaritano al expandir el significado de “ama a tu prójimo” y animando a Estados Unidos a acoger a extranjeros provenientes de otros países que necesitan nuestra ayuda.“Vean ustedes, eso no es un problema, eso es un valor. Luego uno se compromete con los refugiados y la política de inmigración, no a partir del problema, sino de los valores de Jesús,” afirmó.York-Simmons dijo que ella personalmente favorece una mayor participación política de parte de las congregaciones episcopales, pero no esperaría eso de todas las congregaciones. Servir a los menos afortunados puede asumir una variedad de formas, y las congregaciones más tradicionales pueden llevar a cabo su pacto bautismal por sus propios medios.“Todo no va a parecer un movimiento político”, dijo ella. “Y eso está bien”.— David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Leinster defeat Edinburgh at Murrayfield

first_imgTuesday Oct 14, 2008 Leinster defeat Edinburgh at Murrayfield Leinster got their Heineken Cup campaign off to a successful start on Saturday afternoon as they notched up a 27-16 bonus point win over Edinburgh at Murrayfield.Australian Rocky Elsom, who was playing in his first ever Heineken Cup match, picked up the Heineken Man of the Match award, in part due to his fine solo try. Beating the tackles was the first step, but the speed he showed to pull away and keep the lead was impressive.Center Brian ODriscoll, whos been below par in the past year or so, looked to come back to form as he sparked the midfield with typical BOD style runs, and himself got on the end of a nice break from Felipe Contepomi. The try itself was fuelled with controversy though as it looked to have come from an earlier forward pass.The good news for Leinster fans is that ODriscoll showed a few moments of pure class, the type of which were seeing from the man once hailed as the best center in the world. Importantly, hes looking in good shape too.I’ve lost a few pounds. I was too, not muscle bound, but I was too heavy last year. I was carrying a bit but I was probably eating the weights a bit more too. I’ve come down the guts of a stone.”“I feel quick, I definitely feel quicker than last year, but 80 minutes is a long time to carry around an extra stone, if you look at it that way. I’ve worked on that side of things a lot more, I’ve worked on being able to make it through 80 minutes. I used to struggle, after 65-70 it used to start getting to me. Now I’m still struggling at times in games but I’m finishing strong, which is important.”It was an admirable performance by Edinburgh to stay within reach, but the experience and star quality of the Leinster side got them through for a comfortable start to the fascinating Heineken Cup.

Major buzzkill as bees delay Currie Cup Semi Final kick off

first_imgSaturday Oct 16, 2010 Major buzzkill as bees delay Currie Cup Semi Final kick off There was a quite bizarre occurrence in Durban earlier today as the kick-off for the first semi final of the Currie Cup, to be played by the Sharks and the Blue Bulls, was delayed due to a swarm of bees invading the field. This is a short report of the scenes prematch.The players had run out onto the pitch in front of 40 000 expectant fans but it soon became apparent that a swarm of bees had been disturbed and it became unsafe for the game to continue. The game was delayed while a frantic effort was made to find the source and get rid of the bees.Eventually the players, after standing around aimlessly for a good 5 minutes, went up the tunnel to relax in the safety of the change rooms.Smoke machines and leaf blowers were used as clearly there was no resident beekeeper to be found. It was all a bit chaotic and a delay that brought back memories of the rain delayed 1995 World Cup semi final between the Springboks and France at the same venue.Eventually things settled down and while some of the bees were removed manually, others were scared off with smoke, and the rest seemed to settle on small palm trees that were then placed on the sides of the field.The game kicked off 40 minutes late, causing the second semi final to also be pushed back, but there was no sign of the bees again and not too much harm done, bar the occasional sting, and some very bad puns flying around the ground.
