New South Wales Combined Catholic Colleges have survived a late comeback from the Queensland Secondary Schools Touch side to win the title at the 2009 X-Blades National Youth Championships.CCC got out to a three touchdown lead before QSST hit back to level the game with minutes remaining.QSST had the opportunity to again level the scores late in the game when CCC’s Edan Price got sent to the sin bin with less than two minutes remaining, but were unable to capitalise, with the NSW boys taking the game by one touchdown.

jamal danley facebook postIn 2014, Oklahoma posted an 8-5 record, finished fourth in the Big 12, and got blasted by Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl, 40-6. In the offseason, the Sooners made a number of coaching changes – especially on the offensive side of the ball – in an attempt to reestablish dominance in the conference. A year later, they’re 11-1 and a lock to make the College Football Playoff.Tuesday, junior offensive lineman Jamal Danley, who was a four-star JUCO transfer this year, posted a Facebook message that was written to him while he was making his decision on where to play in 2015. The post, which looks to have been sent by a fan, focuses on Oklahoma’s demise and calls Danley “SEC material.” Danley clearly finds it amusing, seeing where OU is right now.1 year later! pic.twitter.com/Z9HiJrX8NG— Jamal Danley™ (@JDanley54) November 30, 2015Oklahoma has off this week as it prepares for to play for a national championship. Apparently, not everyone saw that coming a year ago.

France’s Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC) has unveiled changes to the way it supports film production in the country, with producers able to access funding automatically if they accumulate a number of points granted for meeting certain criteria.CNC president Frédérique Bredin said that the system required reform in the light of changes to the way the sector worked, driven by digitization and the internationalization of production.The CNC said that the new points system would take into account factors such as the rise in importance of digital visual effects, but would also give additional credit for the extent to which a film is produced in France. Bredin said that the latter move would, alongside the implementation of new tax credits, boost production activity in France. He said the system would also place greater value on the work of writers, graphics designers and other professionals involved in the creative process. The system will also be geared towards the support of French-language production.The move follows a report compiled by Alain Sussfeld last year and a consultation with industry stakeholders including groups representing writers, producers, distributors and others.Writers copyright collection society SACD welcomed the changes – in particular the attribution of an additional point to authors in the 100-point scale used to assess projects, and additional recognition for scriptwriters.
Twenty-first Century Fox has increased its offer for Sky to £24.5 billion (€27.7 billion), outbidding rival Comcast which made a £22.1 billion approach for the pay TV operator earlier this year.Fox’s increased offer of £14 for each Sky share marks a 12% premium on Comcast’s £12.50 per-share offer and is roughly 30.2% higher than the initial offer price that it tabled in late 2016.Fox’s initial £10.75 per-share offer for the 61% it doesn’t already own of Sky had valued the operator at some £18.5 billion – a premium of approximately 40% on Sky’s closing share price on December 6, 2016, the last business day before Sky received the Fox offer.The new offer by Fox marks a premium of approximately 82.1% on that same December 6, 2016 closing price of £7.69 per Sky share. However, it is slightly below the price that Sky’s shares have been trading at this week.In a statement, 21st Century Fox said: “We strongly believe that a combined 21CF and Sky will be a powerful driver for the continued growth and vibrancy of the UK and broader global creative industries.”News of the improved offer comes after the UK government last month accepted deal terms between 21st Century Fox and Sky, following an improved commitment from Disney to operate Sky News for a period of 15 years.Then-UK culture secretary Matt Hancock said that new deal terms had been offered that meet the criteria he laid out in parliament earlier the same month – namely that that Sky News remains financially viable over the long term; is able to operate as a major UK-based news provider; and is able to make editorial decisions that are free from any outside influence.Final sign-off from the UK government is expected this week, following a 15-day consultation on the matter, which ended on July 4.Independent telecoms and media analyst, Paolo Pescatore, said: “There’s no way that Disney, nor 21st Century Fox want to let Sky go to Comcast. Therefore, expect another round of counter bids. The price is heading in one direction. It’s a great time to be a Sky shareholder.”
