ULSTER BANK LEAGUE: DIVISION 1B TABLE

In damp conditions on Thomond Park’s back pitch, Dublin University failed to match the level of performance they produced before the Christmas break but tries from Tim Maupin, captain Nick McCarthy and Tom Ryan steered them to an eighth straight win.

25 point winners when the sides met in early December, the students dominated possession in the first quarter and lovely running and offloading from full back Conor Kearns created a converted try for winger Maupin.

However, with Trinity flanker Brian du Toit in the sin bin, Shannon talisman Tadhg Bennett kicked a penalty and converted young lock Frank Bradshaw Ryan’s try, with the strong running Will Leonard involved in the build up.

The visitors hit back on the stroke of half time to lead 15 10, McCarthy cutting through from 30 metres out to finish a free flowing attack, and the margin was out to 15 points after a Jack McDermott penalty and try from number 8 Ryan, who evaded two tacklers on a fine 40 metre burst.

Aided by the introduction of flying winger Greg O’Shea after a long injury absence, Shannon improved in the third quarter with a series of pick and goes ending with hooker Simon Malone crashing over.

Marcus Horan’s men had a couple of near misses as centre Leonard was bundled into touch and Trinity did well to defend a quick tap penalty, before some neat passing opened the way for Leonard’s late converted effort to secure Shannon’s deserved losing bonus point.

Ballymena blew promotion rivals Old Wesley away in a 48 0 demolition job at Eaton Park as the Dubliners fell to their third successive league defeat.

Second placed Ballymena stayed just two points behind leaders St. Mary’s College in the Division 1B table, with winger James Beattie running in two of their seven tries.

A minute’s silence was held before kick off in honour of Old Wesley PRO Billy Browne who sadly passed away just before Christmas. Unfortunately a spilled ball brought an early Wesley attack to an end, and the clinical hosts immediately struck for a try as centre Callum Patterson cut back inside for his sixth score of the campaign.

Turnovers and a poor kick chase hampered Wesley’s hopes of hitting back, and an Andrew Magrath penalty kickstarted a strong scoring spell from the Braidmen as they tagged on three more tries before half time, including one from Ulster capped flanker Clive Ross.

Leading 29 0 at the turnaround, Andy Graham’s charges were then awarded a penalty try following a length of the field attack. Despite losing Magrath to the sin bin for hands in the ruck, Ballymena maintained their high rate of scoring with hooker John Andrew and replacement James Gallagher touching down via a lineout maul and a quick tap penalty respectively.

Blackrock College avenged their recent defeat in Cork as they squeezed past Dolphin on a 14 13 scoreline at Stradbrook.

Leo Cullen’s younger brother Owen touched down and ‘Rock also picked up a penalty try as they produced a gritty comeback to secure only their second win in eight Division 1B outings.

Out half Peter Quirke had a key contribution, with his touchline conversion of Cullen’s effort proving crucial in getting the home side over the finish line.

Dolphin were leading 3 0 after a defence dominated first half, and left winger Dave Griffin crossed for their only try of the afternoon on the way to a 13 0 scoreline. But ‘Rock prevailed in the end thanks to a very strong finish.

Rory O’Connor weighed in with two tries either side of half time to guide Buccaneers to a well merited 18 7 victory over UL Bohemians at Dubarry Park.

Right winger O’Connor, a regular scorer for Buccs during the first half of the season, struck twice off replica moves to take his league tally to eight tries in ten rounds.

A maul try from Munster hooker Kevin O’Byrne reduced the arrears for UL Bohs who were trailing 8 0 at half time. However, Bohs struggled to convert their possession and pressure into points and an eight point kicking contribution from Connacht out half Conor McKeon moved Buccs out of reach.

A 38 13 bonus point win was a fitting way for St. Mary’s College to pay tribute to departing head coach Peter Smyth as they completed a season’s double over Belfast Harlequins.

Smyth, who is leaving to manage the Leinster Rugby Academy, watched the Division 1B leaders tally up five tries in this entertaining clash at Templeville Road.

Bottom side Harlequins should have made more of a series of penalties and a yellow card against St. Mary’s, whose discipline let them down in the early exchanges.

Mark Best’s brace of penalties sandwiched a Sean Kearns effort, before Mary’s first real foray into Harlequins territory yielded a try for young second row David O’Connor. Kearns converted for a 10 6 half time buffer.

Mary’s were much improved in the second period, an early pushover try from Mark Fallon extending their lead to 11 points. The number 8 soon completed his brace with a fine solo effort.

They tagged on two more tries in the final quarter through forwards Ciaran Ruddock and Hugh Kelliher. Darragh Fanning and out half Kearns were the pick of the home backs, the latter converting all five tries to add to his first half penalty.

Harlequins kept pressing for scores late on and were rewarded with a consolation try from replacement Jonathan Siri. But the Ulstermen remain without a win and are ten points adrift of UL Bohs at the bottom of the table.

Ulster Bank League Top Scorers Bruff: Points: Brian Cahill 84; Tries: Cathal O’Regan, Brendan Deady 3 each; Lansdowne: Points: Eoghan Hickey 155; Tries: Matt Healy 7

Preview: A big match for both teams for very different reasons. Bruff have suddenly dropped down the table into second last spot, just two points ahead of bottom side Galwegians.

Lansdowne, by contrast, are still right there with a real chance of promotion. They lie third, and with the way things have gone for Buccaneers recently, the headquarters club could yet overhaul them in second place.

But first they must beat Bruff away and that may not be at at all straightforward. The Limerick outfit will be right up for this game and with the Bateman All Ireland Cup final in two weeks’ time, they will want to get back to winning ways.

Dungannon won a thrilling encounter 28 25 at Stevenson Park on March 5 when the two sides shared eight tries. The last of them, from full back Conor Gaston three minutes from time, gave Dungannon a narrow victory.

Second placed Buccaneers desperately need to end their losing run which has seen them fall 10 points behind leaders Clontarf.

With home advantage, Buccs will probably fancy they can secure that overdue victory,
Division 1B Previews
but Dungannon are also building towards the Bateman All Ireland Cup final.

But they will be looking for much more than that in front of their home fans. Their last outing, a 23 16 away success over Lansdowne, was one of their best displays of the season.

UL Bohemians could represent difficult opponents, particularly if their dangerous backs division see enough of the ball.

‘Tarf will be ‘in the pink’ this weekend when they don a limited edition jersey to raise money for Action Breast Cancer. The replica is also on sale in the club shop and is selling fast.

Diving tours of wreck site to begin in 2018

Diving tours of wreck site to begin in 2018

In 1912, a trip on board the Titanic was the ultimate in luxury travel.

More than a century later, it still is.

Deep pocketed tourists will once again get the chance to explore the Titanic wreckage when London based travel company Blue Marble Private begins dives to the site in May 2018.

Interest in the 20th century most famous maritime disaster has remained high since Robert Ballard and his team discovered the remains of RMS Titanic almost 32 years ago.

However, this could well be one of the last opportunities to visit.

A 2016 study claimed that a recently discovered “extremophile bacteria” could eat away what left of the famous shipwreck inside 15 or 20 years.

$105,129 per person

Blue Marble eight day journey sets off from Newfoundland, Canada and will transport visitors in a purpose built titanium and carbon fiber submersible to the mighty vessel final resting place, more than two miles below the surface of the Atlantic.

The first voyage is already fully booked, despite the experience costing $105,129 per person.

Blue Marble declares in its press release that this is the equivalent (after inflation) to a First Class passage $4,350 on RMS Titanic inaugural and only voyage from Southampton, England to New York.

Three potential days of diving, with dives lasting three hours.

The opportunity to spot weird and wonderful bioluminescent critters during the 90 minute descent.

Three hours exploring the remains of the 269 meter long ship, taking in the deck, the bow, the bridge and the cavern where the grand staircase was once located.

There also be the opportunity to “explore Titanic massive debris field, home to numerous artifacts strewn across the ocean floor, nearly undisturbed for over a century,” says Blue Marble Private founder Elizabeth Ellis.

“During the dive, your crew may conduct 3D and 2D sonar scans or search for one of the ship giant boilers, enormous propellers, and other landmarks of this famous vessel.”

Ellis says further missions are already planned for summer 2019.

Blue Marble might face some competition.

Los Angeles based luxury concierge firm Bluefish is also taking reservations for Titanic expeditions for 2018/19, but has yet to confirm itinerary and price.

That all very well for deep sea divers, but what if you a hardcore Titanic enthusiast who afraid of seawater?

Not a problem.

China is currently building a life size replica of the doomed ship in landlocked Sichuan Province, more than 1,200 kilometers from the sea.

The multi million dollar project will include reproductions of the original Titanic features, including a ballroom, theater and swimming pool, and will be permanently docked in a reservoir in the Qijiang River.

More ambitious plans by an Australian tycoon, Clive Palmer, for a full size, seaworthy replica have reportedly been delayed. It was originally scheduled for launch in 2016 but, this was moved to 2018.

For shipwreck fans with a more modest budget, there also Northern Ireland Titanic Museum.

The vessel was built at the city shipyards before hitting the water for the first time on its journey down to Southampton.

District debates squatters’ cabin

District debates squatters’ cabin

The cabin was where artists Al Neil and Carole Itter composed and created. It has been sitting at Canexus Chemicals since it was moved off the waterfront to make way for a Polygon condo development last year.

But before the historic building can float on the inlet, the consortium of artists attempting to save it are asking the district to float them some cash. The committee, led by Glenn Alteen, made its pitch for $10,000 in seed money at council on Monday night.

Coun. Lisa Muri led the effort at council to put up the money from council’s contingency fund to do some basic remediation work in the name of saving a piece of North Vancouver history.

“It’s something that is dear to many people and in this time of such great change in the Lower Mainland, particularly on the North Shore where we’re seeing so many things torn down. . it’s hard for many of us to see such change. It’s certainly hard for me. I don’t think I’ve ever been very open to change,” she said. “It’s a small amount of money, council, to retain a very historical part of our community.”

Despite some initial concerns, Coun. Doug MacKay Dunn also sided with preserving history amid the tide of redevelopment.

“We risk forgetting our past. This blue cabin is a link with the unique history of our community and a contribution,” he said.

Council was split, however. Coun. Robin Hicks spoke against giving the grant in aid of a “dilapidated hut” when there are so many more pressing funding needs from the district.

“I think $10,000 is not an insignificant amount that could be used to help the homeless or more charitable endeavours within the district,” he said.

The next item on council’s agenda, was a similar emergency funding request for the North Shore Community Resource Society’s community housing action committee,
District debates squatters' cabin
which passed unanimously.

Coun. Roger Bassam too warned against “throwing good money after bad,” especially given the condition of the cabin.

“Essentially the entire exo structure is rotted on the perimeter on the bottom two feet. The whole thing has to be rebuilt,” he said.

There’s no way the cabin could be brought up to code in order to get an occupancy permit, he added, and there are also no clear answers on how it can receive heritage protection while being placed on a movable barge.

“The heritage value is in the esthetic, which probably could be reproduced. You may actually find much better cultural value in recreating this from new a replica,” he said.

It’s true, big questions remain, especially about logistics, legalities, feasibility and governance over the cabin, according to Alteen, but the fundamentals of the project remain strong, he added.

“The thing is structurally sound. There’s a lot of life left in it,” he said. “Ten thousand dollars is not going to remediate the cabin. But it is going to buy us time to get that cabin up to snuff so it does live through the next 10 months while we’re planning the project,

” he said.

Disney to Buy Marvel and Its 5000 Characters for

Disney to Buy Marvel and Its 5000 Characters for

LOS ANGELES The Walt Disney Company’s surprise deal to acquire Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion redraws the architecture of Hollywood and spotlights how the media giant has become more aggressive than its peers about growth.

Disney said on Monday that it would pay cash and stock to acquire Marvel, the comic book publisher and movie studio whose library of 5,000 characters includes some of the world’s best known superheroes: Spider Man, the X Men, Thor, Iron Man and the Fantastic Four.

Marvel has forcefully exploited its most popular characters through motion pictures, video games and consumer products. But Disney sees an opportunity to plug Marvel into its vaunted global marketing and distribution system.

Certain Marvel characters can be immediately integrated into Disney’s theme parks in California, Paris and Hong Kong. (For now, Walt Disney World in Florida is off limits because of a pact Marvel has in place with Universal Studios there.) Disney’s cable channels, in particular Disney XD, will have new intellectual property to mine. And the potential in consumer products is huge, especially overseas.

The brooding Marvel characters tend to be more popular with boys an area where Disney could use help. While the likes of “Hannah Montana” and the blockbuster Princesses merchandising line have solidified Disney’s hold on little girls, franchises for boys have been harder to come by.

The acquisition points to the film industry’s biggest issue at the moment: access to capital. Those who have it are finding opportunity; those who do not may be left behind.

Marvel had tried to pay for its films with the help of $525 million in financing, but found it impossible on “Iron Man” and “Hulk” to meet a condition that required it to raise a third of its cash by selling off certain overseas distribution rights. F. Peter Cuneo, Marvel’s vice chairman, told investors in May that the company would self finance a third of each film to get around that requirement. This would be a much easier chore with Disney’s muscle behind it.

The deal underscores Disney’s focus on growth and could herald a new wave of media consolidation, analysts said. While some observers questioned the price as too steep Disney shares fell 3 percent to about $26 on Monday most saw the acquisition as a smart, ambitious expansion maneuver. Mr. Iger, who orchestrated Disney’s $7.4 billion purchase of Pixar in 2006, is now firmly one of the media world’s most powerful dealmakers.

Acquiring Marvel makes Disney a partner with Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment and 20th Century Fox, all of which have long term deals to make or distribute movies based on superhero characters. Sony holds the film rights to Spider Man, for instance, while Fox has the X Men and Fantastic Four in perpetuity.

Paramount, a unit of Viacom, has an agreement to distribute five Marvel films,
Disney to Buy Marvel and Its 5000 Characters for
including two “Iron Man” sequels, over the next few years. Disney said it would honor the contract, but the goal is clearly to bring Marvel’s movies in house.

As Disney’s film division becomes suddenly crowded, the company may find its new partnerships bumping into one another. Just last month, Disney’s new DreamWorks partners found themselves assuring executives that they would avoid any conflict with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise as they sought to develop a film based on Michael Crichton’s novel “Pirate Latitudes.”

The deal is not without risk. Questions include whether Marvel’s lesser known characters can be effectively groomed into stars and to what degree the most valuable and heavily exploited assets (Spider Man, the X Men) have weakened in box office power. “If you want poor kids in Bali to run around with a Hulk lunchbox, then sign on with Disney,” one poster, peterpersy, wrote.

Marvel’s development slate is relatively thin: the company works on only five or six scripts at once, compared with the dozens under way at major studios, though in Marvel’s case virtually all are expected to become finished films.

Yet Marvel, like Pixar, has made an enormous impression by racking up an almost unbroken series of hits two films based on the Incredible Hulk were soft after having risen from bankruptcy in 1998. Last year, the studio struck gold with “Iron Man,” which sold $585 million in tickets at the global box office.

Marvel’s publishing business is also strong. The company was the top comics publisher in 2008, edging out its closest rival, DC Comics, in both unit market share (46 percent to 32 percent) and retail dollar share (41 percent to 30 percent). The comic book industry had about $715 million in sales last year, according to Milton Griepp, the publisher and founder of ICv2, an online trade publication that covers pop culture for retailers.

Ike Perlmutter, Marvel’s chief executive, will continue to oversee the superhero properties, and will work directly with Disney’s global lines of business to build and further integrate Marvel’s characters. The executive, who outmaneuvered the billionaire financiers Ronald O. Perelman and Carl C. Icahn to acquire Marvel out of bankruptcy, will receive about $1.44 billion in cash and Disney stock,

“Finally, cabins will slow down at the Disney Skyliner turn station along Buena Vista Drive, where guests can see the mechanical and aerial components that make up the Disney Skyliner,” the blog said.

The blog did not say when the gondolas will open.

“Select Disney Skyliner cabins will have iconic Disney characters incorporated into their exterior design to give the appearance that a Disney pal is riding along with guests, such as characters from the ‘Fab Five,
