Six Nations 2018: England coach Eddie Jones SAVAGES journalist over Rhys Patchell question

Jones had spent much of his pre-match press conference talking about Wales’ 24-year-old fly-half Rhys Patchell, questioning whether he had the “bottle” to cope with the pressure of a first ever Six Nations start away from home. The seven-cap Scarlet was bombarded with big hits and high balls by England and was eventually substituted after 56 minutes, full-back Gareth Anscombe moving up to take his place at No 10. But Jones refused to take any credit for pressuring Patchell into a poor performance and refused even to consider the effect…

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — The father of American college student Otto Warmbier, who died shortly after being released from prison in North Korea last year, said he hopes his family’s presence at the Olympics is a physical reminder of the power and brutality of the Kim regime. “I’m telling the truth about the regime’s treatment of my son. But guess what, they do this to countless other people,” Fred Warmbier said in an exclusive interview with NBC News on the sidelines of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. “This isn’t defiance. This…

Arsenal signed Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund last month with the Gabon international moving to the Emirates for a huge £53million.

North Korea says it is unable to pay U.N. dues, blames sanctions

UNITED NATIONS — North Korea is unable to pay its share of the 2018 U.N. budgets because of international sanctions on its foreign exchange bank and has asked a senior U.N. official for help, the country’s U.N. mission said in a statement.

Ambassador Ja Song Nam met with U.N. management chief Jan Beagle on Friday to ask the world body to help secure a bank transaction channel so Pyongyang could pay the nearly $184,000 it says it owes for 2018. U.N. member states are required to pay…

The case against subwoofers for music – CNET

Big woofers for big bass Steve Guttenberg/CNET Subwoofers for music systems don’t make sense to me anymore. For home theater, where movies rely on low-frequency effects subs to make the magic happen, subs are essential. No argument here, but music rarely has extremely deep, under-50Hz bass, and most speakers with 5-inch (127mm) or larger woofers can muster 50Hz bass in small or midsize rooms. Of course, if you crave gut-shaking bass or you have a big room, larger speakers and subs are recommended. I started mulling this over after I…

England 12 – Wales 6: Jonny May proves difference in BRUTAL Six Nations clash

May had two men to thank – Joe Launchbury and Owen Farrell – for the assists for his tries but at least one still required the finish to give England an early lead in an increasingly wet and windy west London. Rhys Patchell had been warned by Eddie Jones to expect a barrage and he was given as much, and when replaced by Gareth Anscombe at No 10 the difference was palpable. However, it was too little too late for Warren Gatland’s side, whose lack of precision with ball in…
