Coach Didier Deschamps, captain of Jacquet's squad when they won France's only World Cup title, had lunch with the players before visiting the National Football Centre in Clairefontaine, south-west of the capital. "This is a coach who was world champion, he gave us some coaching tips, told us to stand united, to have fun and to go after our dream," said Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema. "He told us that the World Cup was a fabulous moment to share together," added Paris Saint-Germain defender Lucas Digne. "You have reference to remember that this is Aime Jacquet, the first French coach to win the World Cup." A former defensive midfielder during his playing career Jacquet earned two caps for France in 1968. He coached France from 1993, retiring straight after their World Cup success at home in 1998. France's 2010 World Cup campaign in South Africa was marked by a players' strike and a group-stage exit. Deschamps's side have been drawn against Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras in this year's World Cup which starts on June 12.

Budget Cuts Lead To Lab Closures In Australia | Science/aaas | News

The Directions Statement, released to staff on Wednesday, specifies that the Mopra Telescope will close. But Lewis Ball, chief of CSIROs Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) program, hopes alternative funding can be found for the 22-meter telescope, which since 2012 has been run by a consortium that includes the University of New South Wales and the National Astronomical Observatory (visit site) of Japan. Were exploring the possibility that our partners can pick up the cost of Mopra, he says. While the partnership agreement runs to 2015, the budget cuts would take effect on 1 July. Research at two of Australias other four radio observatories, Parkes and Narrabri, will also be reduced. Ball says CASS is working out details of the reduction and the number of staff members who will lose their jobs. He affirms that CSIRO intends to meet its obligations over the next 2 years to the $2.5 billion international Square Kilometre Array, the worlds largest radio telescope, and the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder instrument. Other CSIRO facilities on the chopping block, according to the Directions Statement, are a Queensland site housing the Australian e-Health Research Centre; Victorias more.. Highett Laboratories, home to advanced processing, materials and infrastructure research, and sustainable ecosystems; and the Victorian Science Education Centre.
