Executive Director Klaus Toepfer told more than 600 bankers, financiers and members of the financial sector in Tokyo for the UNEP Finance Initiative Global Roundtable that two of world’s most pressing issues – energy security and climate change – will not be solved “by the mindset that created them.””Instead of climate change we need to create the climate for change,” he said.According to a UNEP statement from Tokyo, Mr. Toepfer told the group that “although sustainable energy technologies such as solar cells and wind generators have advanced rapidly, the transaction costs and market uncertainty of many renewable energy projects has led most financiers to adopt a ‘wait-and-see’ attitude, which is compounded by an overall lack of information, experience and the tools needed to quantify, mitigate and hedge project and financial product risks.”He said, “SEFI will help mainstream financiers overcome these barriers and consider renewable energy and energy efficiency as not just niche investments, but key components of secure energy systems based on truly sustainable forms of energy.”Mr. Toepfer said that if the billions of dollars to be invested in new energy infrastructure in the next two decades follows the fossil fuel “business as usual” mindset, the resulting serious and irreparable environmental and social harm could dramatically affect the health of human societies, economies and the ecosystems on which they depend.”For developing countries, in particular, the reliance on fossil fuels and centralized infrastructure will not serve the vast majority of people in rural areas where the economic benefits of a modern energy system are elusive, although the environmental costs from using low quality fuels such as dung, coal and kerosene are not,” he said.

Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Mar 20, 2013 2:00 pm MDT Fed forecasts modest US growth, high unemployment into 2015, a sign rates will remain low WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve foresees unemployment remaining high into 2015, suggesting it will keep short-term interest rates near record lows at least until then.In its latest economic forecasts released Wednesday, the Fed predicts that the unemployment rate will stay above 6.5 per cent for about two more years. Fed policymakers also expect the economy to grow modestly this year and next despite economic gains so far in 2013.The Fed’s updated forecasts are nearly identical to projections it made in December. The Fed has said it plans to keep its benchmark rate near zero as long as unemployment exceeds 6.5 per cent and the inflation outlook is tame.The policymakers expect the economy to grow as little as 2.3 per cent this year — not enough to quickly drive down unemployment — or as high as 2.8 per cent. In 2014, growth could range from 2.9 per cent to 3.4 per cent in 2014, they predict.The Fed has slightly upgraded its outlook for unemployment. It now sees the rate falling to between 7.3 per cent and 7.5 per cent by the end of this year. That’s down from a previous range of 7.4 per cent to 7.7 per cent.The rate fell to 7.7 per cent in February, the lowest in four years.By the end of 2014, the Fed expects the rate to fall between 6.7 per cent and 7 per cent. That’s a narrower range than in December, when it forecast a range of 6.8 per cent to 7.3 per cent.
ATLANTA — Tata Martino’s love affair with Atlanta’s soccer fans didn’t have to last long to have meaning.On Thursday, Atlanta United’s coach expressed his appreciation for the fans’ record-breaking support as his team prepared for Saturday’s MLS Cup final against the Portland Timbers.“First I just want to say thank you to Atlanta for letting me participate from the very beginning in the birth of this new club,” Martino said through a translator.Martino’s leadership played a lead role in Atlanta’s meteoric rise as a MLS power. Led by MLS MVP Josef Martinez , Atlanta United is trying to win the MLS title in only its second season as an expansion franchise.Along the way, Atlanta has set MLS attendance records for a single game and season. Another record is expected Saturday when a crowd of more than 70,000 is expected to pack Mercedes-Benz Stadium.Atlanta United set a single-game attendance record of 72,243 against Seattle on July 15.Martino was voted MLS coach of the year after announcing this would be his final season. Saturday will be his farewell to Atlanta fans, leaving behind a legacy that will be difficult for his successor to match. The former Barcelona and Argentina national coach reportedly is headed to Mexico’s national team.Veteran midfielder Jeff Larentowicz said Martino has been the foundation of the new franchise.“He’s the leader, he’s the pillar in the middle,” Larentowicz said Thursday.“His message from Day 1 has been the same. When he speaks, we listen. That’s really it. Without getting too technical, he’s the boss. What he says goes, and we’ve all bought in.”Larentowicz said Martino won instant respect, even as a newcomer to the MLS, through his “knowledge of the game.”“His management and style is at times uncompromising but I think it’s always best for the team,” Larentowicz said. “His ability to sit down after having never coached in the MLS and to break down a team you’ve played against a million times, and he tells you something you’ve never seen before.”Atlanta fans honoured Martino with a towering, statue-like tribute that showed the coach in his trademark pose, his arms crossed and a sweater tied over his shoulders. “El Tata” was written on the base.“My first reaction was to smile because I thought it was very nice and affectionate,” Martino said Thursday, smiling.“I’m always someone to highlight respect. Aside from the amount of affection I’ve been shown from the fans, the amount of affection they have shown me and continue to show, that they always will show me, that feeling is mutual. Aside from that affection, I value respect a lot and it has always been a mutual respect ever since I came to Atlanta between myself and the fan base.”Players say Martino has not made this Cup final about him. There is ample incentive without challenging players to win one for the coach.“For us, the most important thing is we are very excited to play this game in front of our home fans and with all the emotion and hype going into this match,” Martino said. “We view it as our reward for this season but also these two years of hard work we’ve put in.”__For more AP soccer: https://apnews.com/apf-Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsCharles Odum, The Associated Press
MAST in front of HMS BelfastCredit:Heathcliff O’Malley Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. MAST has been built for the MoD’s defence laboratories and is based on an existing Bladerunner speedboat, but fitted with sensors and robotic technology that is still largely classified.The boat has a sophisticated anti-collision system to avoid hazards and other craft, but current laws meant that when it was unveiled on the Thames, it had to have a human coxswain on board.While the MAST is only a test platform for new technology and will not enter service as it stands, sources said it could it pave the way for future robots vessels that can track, shadow or spy on other craft as well as loitering off coastlines.Elizabeth Quintana, director of military sciences at the Royal United Services Institute, said the Navy was looking at unmanned vehicles to take on “dull, dirty, and dangerous” jobs. The speedboat can be programmed to operate and navigate entirely on its own.Credit:Heathcliff O’Malley A drone speedboat that could pave the way for a Royal Navy robot fleet of high-speed reconnaissance and surveillance vessels has been unveiled by defence scientists.The 34ft boat can skim across the waves at more than 50kts to track high speed targets, while navigating and dodging other ships without the control of a human.Naval commanders believe the Maritime Autonomy Surface Testbed (MAST) could herald a robot fleet of high-speed craft packed with sensors to carry out spy and scouting missions. She said robot speedboats could also prove useful for protecting warships such as the new aircraft carriers from swarms of attacking speedboats like those deployed by the Iranian navy in the Gulf.But she said military chiefs were hesitant about arming unmanned vehicles.She said: “The real issue is the public perception and the nervousness that some in the military might have and the potential legal challenges.“The use of unmanned systems to deliver lethal force is still extremely controversial. It’s facing all sorts of legal challenges, so I think going down that road is quite difficult.”The Navy has already used unmanned vehicles for surveillance and for hunting for underwater mines.Earlier this year it announced its three-year-old fleet of ScanEagle drones which has tracked drug gangs, pirates and people smugglers would be axed, and cost-cutting means there is no budget for replacements.The ScanEagle aircraft, which was described by the Ministry of Defence as “crucial” and “game-changing” when it was bought in, will leave service next year.Exercise Unmanned Warrior will next month (OCT) see defence scientists try out competing maritime drones to see what they can offer the Navy in areas such as reconnaissance and surveillance, submarine hunting and mine detection. The unarmed test craft is one of 40 prototypes to be tested by the Royal Navy in a major robot war game off the coast of northern Scotland in October.The dawn of unmanned vehicles is likely to have the same revolutionary effect on naval warfare as the birth of flight and aircraft carriers, according to the navy’s Fleet Robotics Officer.Cdr Peter Pipkin said: “This is a chance to take a great leap forward in maritime systems – not to take people out of the loop but to enhance everything they do, to extend our reach, our look, our timescales, our efficiency using intelligent and manageable robotics at sea.”

FAR MORE WOMEN are being trafficked into Ireland than official numbers would suggest, the head of the Immigrant Council has said, as anti-trafficking organisations marked EU anti-trafficking day today.91 victims of sex trafficking were assisted by the organisation Ruhama last year, but over 1,000 women appear on escort and prostitute websites in the country every day. Ruhama works with women affected by prostitution in Ireland.“On any given day there are around 1,000 women for sale on the internet in Ireland” Denise Charlton, CEO of the Immigrant Council of Ireland told TheJournal.ie. “The last time we checked three weeks ago there were 1,027. They can appear as independent agents but the reality is that many are controlled by third parties.”Along with over 50 other organisations, the Immigrant Council is running the ‘Turn off the Red Light’ campaign, which aims to end sex trafficking to Ireland.Under the latest EU Directive on Human Trafficking which Ireland has signed, each country is required to take measures to discourage and reduce demand. Members of the ‘Turn off the Red Light’ campaign are calling on the government to reduce the demand in the sex trade by introducing legislation which will criminalise the buying of sex.“It is very hard for victims to come forward. The are often controlled and moved around. Many are too frightened to come forward and are severely exploited. The best way to end the human rights abuses which are taking place in every county in Ireland is to target demand by making it illegal to pay for sex. We reject the notion that the traffickers, pimps and other criminals operating a sex ‘trade’ here will ever respect the rights of workers.Column: Think about sex trafficking. Do Irish people come to mind?>
As the average age of gamers increases, the medium matures, and we start to reach the limit of how much game-based ultra-violence we need to consume. The marketplace has therefore started to embrace more experiential games. These games aren’t exactly flooding the stores yet, but it’s gotten to the point where some of them are notable releases and they are more than just a break between the release of Modern Warfare and Battlefield. One of the best games in this genre (if you can call it that) is Journey, which was released on PSN earlier this month.The blandly name game sounds like something straight out of the MUD era, but it’s anything but. The game is starkly beautiful, with striking sound and absolutely no unnecessary adornment. You have two buttons — most of which serve no purpose for large parts of the game — and then one stick to control the character and another for the camera. The character is faceless, nameless, mute, and vaguely feminine, with no goal aside from a destination off in the distance. The game has no directions, no tutorial, and while it’s multiplayer you can’t choose your companions and you can only communicate with them through musical notes that the character emits.Speaking of the multiplayer — it’s oddly fantastic. With no way to communicate with other players aside from emitting ghostly chords, jumping in the air, or running in circles around them, people that I regularly mute when playing other games are transformed into docile, helpful companions that I spent large parts of my quest with.If this sounds unlike any game you’ve played lately, then you’re starting to catch on. It combines the beauty and loosely defined goals of Flower with exploration and unparallelled simplicity. You can’t die, you can’t kill anything, and there are not RPG-like features.I could say more about the game, but frankly I think I’d be doing you a disservice by over-explaining it. It’s a wonderful experience that will last you about two hours. I, like many people, wish it could have been longer, but if that would have meant diluting the experience or feeling less connection between the character and myself, then I’m glad the developers didn’t feel the need to add fluff to the game just to increase playtime.There’s not much else to say aside from that you should set aside some time, mute your phone, and give Journey a try. Even if you don’t buy into the whole experiential thing, this is the best looking game I’ve played in years, maybe ever.
Earlier this week there was a rumor going around that Microsoft was set to launch the Xbox One on Friday, November 8. That rumor came via a marketing company that was handling signage for the launch, and therefore understandably would be seeing dates.Since then another source has appeared, this time “closer to Microsoft” stating that November 8 isn’t the date, and that’s too early in the month anyway.So we are back to best guesses, and I think the safest thing to do is look back at the launch of the Xbox 360. That happened on a Tuesday, the date was November 22, 2005. If Microsoft was to repeat that and launch on November 22 again, that’s a Friday, which is no bad thing. It’s also the week before Black Friday, giving Microsoft 7 days to sell all the launch stock it has available and get out of the way of the sales.Of course, there’s the PS4 to consider. Sony has confirmed its next-gen console will launch on November 15, so if Xbox One arrives on the 22nd Sony will have had a week to itself. That’s not ideal, especially when it is the console that has had much more favorable press than the Xbox One over the past few months.When to launch the Xbox One is ultimately a difficult decision for Microsoft. Do they launch on the Tuesday before the PS4 and risk people waiting until the weekend to buy a new console? Launching on the same day as the PS4 is even more risky, and would probably hurt both console sales, so seems very unlikely. And if they launch after the PS4 then there’s the chance gamers will decide to pick up the cheaper console and won’t have the cash to buy an Xbox One as well.I think I’d have to put my money on the Xbox One launch date being Tuesday, November 12. That way Microsoft has a next-gen console available before Sony and it isn’t going to get squeezed out of the picture a week after launch by the Black Friday sales.
Les pommes changent de goût sous le coup du réchauffement climatiqueLe réchauffement climatique peut avoir des conséquences inattendues. Il est par exemple responsable du changement du goût des pommes révèle une étude japonaise publiée la semaine dernière.Selon une étude japonaise publiée jeudi dernier dans Scientific Reporter, les pommes changent de goût sous l’effet du réchauffement climatique. Les chercheurs japonais auteurs de la recherche jugent qu’elles sont plus sucrées mais moins croquantes qu’auparavant.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ? Deux variétés de pommes ont été étudiées : la Fuji (qui serait la plus répandue dans le monde) et la Tsugaru. Dans les régions de Nagano et d’Aomori d’où proviennent ces pommes, les températures moyennes ont augmentés de respectivement de 0,31°C et de 0,34°C par décennie depuis 1970.De fait, l’ouverture des bourgeons et la floraison des pommiers se sont faites de plus en plus précoces. Mais c’est bien le goût lui-même qui a changé relèvent les chercheurs qui ont retrouvé une diminution de l’acidité au cours du temps tandis que le taux de sucres augmentait. Les changements sont jugés modérés mais toutefois “significatifs”.Pour l’équipe japonaise, si le changement climatique se poursuit, “les modifications dans les attributs de goût et de texture des pommes pourraient être plus frappantes avec des floraisons encore plus précoces et une hausse des températures pendant la période de maturation du fruit”.

Alarming news coming from Argentina of alleged negotiations between a club in Mexico that is interested in signing Diego Maradona as their manager.The memory of Argentine legend Diego Armando Maradona celebrating his national team’s victory against Nigeria is still fresh in our minds, now there are reports that suggest he wants to come to Mexico and manage Dorados from Sinaloa. The Mexican football club that is in the heart of where the major drug cartels in the world operate is not a very good destination for Diego Maradona, who could potentially get into a lot of trouble really fast if he manages to get the job. According to TyC Sports from Argentina, the negotiations have just started between the club and Maradona’s agents and there is a major issue that would prevent the football legend from fulfilling his purpose of coming to Mexico. The issue has to do with a contract Maradona signed with Belarus club Dynamo Brest to become the club’s president, this would be the only obstacle between Diego Maradona and one of the world’s cocaine capital in Sinaloa, Mexico. Anyone who thinks the Argentine former player is going to this country of all places to continue his career as a manager, clearly is too innocent and hasn’t followed Diego’s lifestyle.Según @TyCSports, los @Dorados de Sinaloa negocian con Diego Armando Maradona para que sea su próximo DT pic.twitter.com/tkrBUxAwbB— San Cadilla ?? (@SanCadilla) September 6, 2018Diego’s most recent party incidents.After his failed attempt to excuse himself from the embarrassing World Cup incident during the Argentina vs Nigeria group stage match, Diego Maradona seems like he hasn’t stopped partying like an animal. There were interviews he gave to the press in a clear intoxicated state of mind where he could barely speak, then there was last week’s incident in Belarus where he was filmed partying with many Dynamo Brest fans on top of a car and showing his nipples. This man is completely out of control and now he wants to go to the city that is mostly controlled by one of the deadliest drug cartels in history, the Sinaloa Cartel. Maradona and Culiacan, what on earth could go wrong right? The Napoli legend’s addiction problems started way back during the eighties when he played in Serie A for the Naples club where he became a God-like figure for the Napoli fans and he has always struggled to stay sober ever since. But Diego had a recent relapse in the past years that has increased at a faster pace lately.On the football side of things, Maradona is looking to sign this new contract with the same club that Pep Guardiola played for during the twilight of his career. Dorados is currently in Mexico’s Second Division and just last season, the promotion was completely eliminated for the following years. So knowing that there is no chance of promoting the squad to Liga MX, there really is no reason for Diego Maradona to manage a Mexican club other than to keep partying as hard as he can until either his heart stops beating or he gets into some deep problems with the drug cartel. This is brewing fast, it’s a recipe for disaster that can only end up in even more bad publicity for Mexico as a country because one of the most revered football players of all time can’t control his urges and he is coming to the least ideal place where he can satiate them. Hopefully, nothing goes wrong in Sinaloa, but there is nothing that surprises us about Diego Maradona at this point.¿Vuelve a dirigir a Maradona?: https://t.co/WbhRjMSwn2 pic.twitter.com/DlWxi1kAv9Top 5 best players from the international break weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After a fresh international break just came to an end, we need to talk about the Top 5 best players during this whole weekend.We…— TyC Sports (@TyCSports) September 5, 2018During his managerial career, Diego Maradona has been the coach of five squads. The first one back in 1994 when he was banned from football for doping, was Argentine club Deportivo Mandiyu. One year after that, Diego Maradona coached Racing Club from his country as well. Then long after his retirement from professional football, Diego Maradona got an offer he couldn’t refuse to coach the Argentina National Team between 2008 and 2010 where he had the opportunity to coach Lionel Messi. After that two-year spell, Diego Maradona went on to manage Dubai clubs Al Wasl and Al Fujairah most recently. The Argentina former player never won a trophy throughout his managerial career, something that could play against him in Mexico if he finally gets to sign a new contract for Dorados. But this whole situation smells really bad, it has the makings of a tragic movie ending that will be hard to forget for the country of Mexico.La trayectoria de Maradona como DT ???

Harry Potter Tags Comment Share your voice Harry Potter fans will soon get four new e-books that offer up the background and folklore behind wizard magic.For those of us Muggles who can’t attend Hogwarts, there’ll soon be a chance to go deeper into our favorite Harry Potter wizarding subjects, with the release of four new e-books.Pottermore Publishing said last week that it’ll release a series of short e-books that explore the “traditional folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter series.”The books, set to start appearing in June, will go into subjects offered to wizarding students at Hogwarts. The four titles include: “Harry Potter: A Journey Through Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts,” “Harry Potter: A Journey Through Potions and Herbology,” “Harry Potter: A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy” and “Harry Potter: A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures.” The collection may offer insight into the origin of the Patronus charm, which provides individualized guardians for wizards, or the best way to quiet Mandrakes, whose screams can literally kill you.J.K. Rowling, creator of Harry Potter, launched the popular fantasy series over 20 years ago. Since then, more than half a million Harry Potter books have been sold and the series has been translated into 80 languages, according to the Pottermore website.The seventh and final book in the series was released in 2007, but fans have been hungry for more. Rowling has repeatedly said there’ll be no more Harry Potter books. Instead, she’s focused on releasing new material about the characters, places and objects in the Harry Potter stories. In 2016, the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” considered the eighth installment in the series, debuted. In addition to the play, Rowling has also written the book “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which has also been made into a movie. The insatiable appetite for all things Harry Potter, fueled by the successful feature film franchise depicting the books, has also spawned other offshoots, such as Harry Potter theme park attractions and Potter-themed games. Later this year, the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite augmented reality game is set for release. Similar to the wildly successful Pokemon Go, the game relies on your phone’s GPS, moves around the physical world and allows players to interact with beasts, objects, points of interest and other witches and wizards that come across the game’s map and are overlaid onto the actual environment. The first of the new e-books, “A Journey Through Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts” and “A Journey Through Potions and Herbology,” are scheduled for publication on June 27. The two other books, “A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy” and “A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures,” don’t have release dates yet.Fans can preorder the first new Harry Potter e-books on Amazon for $2.99 apiece. The new Potter books are also available for preorder through Apple Books for the same price. TV and Movies 1

They also have to mention if any tender has been floated or sanctioned to carry out repair work of any stretch of road till June 30. Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJPBased on the report, the discussion in the meeting will be held. There will also be discussion to decide if work needs to be carried out for any road.It has been learnt that the top brass of the PWD had reviewed the condition of the roads in April. Now, the Chief Secretary is going to review the entire situation and wouldsuggest steps that need to be taken.It may be mentioned that the condition of roads has improved in the past seven years, with a series of projects taken up by the Mamata Banerjee government since 2011. Both in the urban and rural parts of the state, road condition has improved and for the first time ever in the history of Bengal, roads in villages have also been concretised. Steps have also been taken to construct 27,000 new rural roads.Apart from constructing new roads that ensure a development of infrastructure, the state government also maintains vigil to know if any stretch of road is in poor condition and the repairing work is taken up on an immediate basis, so that people do not face any problem.
Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Listen Now 3 min read January 8, 2015 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. LAS VEGAS – What if you could scan a piece of cheese to discover its caloric content or a stray pill to figure out if it’s a vitamin or your pain medication? It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s a feat that’s already possible thanks to a tiny device called SCiO. After raising close to $3 million on Kickstarter last year, the company showed off a prototype of its molecular scanner this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.Since its time on Kickstarter the device has gotten even better. “SCiO’s current design incorporates more features and increased functionality than the original molecular sensor we promised,” says Dror Sharon, CEO and co-founder of Consumer Physics, the company behind SciO.Related: 9 New Fitness Gadgets to Help You Get Into Shape This YearThe device is about the size of your average Zippo lighter and scans food when you press a button its side. SCiO analyzes whatever you have it pointed at on a molecular level and then reports back its findings to the scanner’s app. Details include not only what something is but also its nutritional information.Image credit: Consumer PhysicsSince Kickstarter, SCiO has added a remote temperature sensor, a protective cover that pulls double duty as a calibration mechanism and a new light indicator on the activation button to let you know a scan is underway.Related: An Insider’s Look Into CES 2015“You don’t have to be a scientist,” says Sharon “Users can just follow their curiosity. The applications are truly endless and as SCiO grows and learns so will our users be able to scan more and more materials. “That learning is an important piece of the puzzle. In order for SCiO to accurately scan something, it will need to have scanned it before and have the item in its database. Once it’s saved, it can always identity that item in the future. It can even tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi. The more people who use SCiO the greater that database will eventually become.Image credit: Emily PriceSCiO is currently available for pre-order on the company’s website with as estimated ship date of July 2015. Just the scanner is $249 while the device’s software development kit is $449.Related: Lessons from a Food-Tech Startup: Big Data Isn’t Just a Buzzword — It Can Be Your Secret Weapon
Tourism Funding Boost for NSW North CoastThe NSW Government today announced a dedicated Flood Recovery Support Program worth $300,000 to help drive visitors back to the NSW North Coast this Spring.Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall were in Lismore to make the announcement and said the NSW Government is doing everything it can to assist the North Coast tourism industry following the devastating floods in March.After consulting with our key industry stakeholders and listening to their concerns, I’m very pleased to announce the NSW Government will be delivering a Flood Recovery Support Program,” Ms Berejilklian said.“It’s important we send a clear message that the North Coast is open for business.”Mr Marshall said the NSW Government’s campaign was designed to have a significant impact on local tourism.“The funding program will include new marketing initiatives, an extensive digital and social media program, media familiarisations as well as industry partnerships with HotelsCombined, Webjet, Stayz and National Geographic,” Mr Marshall said.Member for Tweed Geoff Provest, who joined the Premier and Minister Marshall for today’s announcement, said the campaign will help grab the attention of those wanting to book a short break or longer holiday.“Our region is back on its feet. We want to make sure that every bed in every hotel is on the bookings radar over the coming Spring period,” Mr Provest said.Member for Lismore Thomas George said the Flood Recovery Support Program follows the announcement of the exclusive Barbarians Rugby match.“With the Barbarians taking on a Classic Wallabies and National Rugby Championship select side this October, this event will provide a strong boost to the local economy and further showcase regional NSW’s number one destination,” he said.The support and promotional package will run until September 2017.Source = Destination NSW
