Scotland 29-0 ItalyCotter finishes with record of 19 wins from 36 matches in charge Not the fireworks that Scotland hoped for on Vern Cotter’s farewell but a final flourish that maintains their hopes of finishing second in the Six Nations after ending their campaign with three victories for the first time since 2006. Tries for Finn Russell – who was far more assured than his erratic display against England – the replacement Matt Scott, Tim Visser and Tommy Seymour made sure of the bonus point the sell-out crowd were expecting against a forlorn Italy side who have now lost 12 Six Nations matches in a row. It was a performance that rather aptly summed up Cotter’s tenure. A slow start, a storm weathered and a fast finish and it ensures the New Zealander departs with 19 victories from his 36 matches in charge. Their failure to truly put Italy to the sword means they will need Wales to deny France victory, without a bonus point win themselves, in Paris and England to deny Ireland in Dublin if they are to finish as runners-up but Scotland can reflect on a campaign where optimism at the outset was, on this occasion, justified.

As the Israeli army attacked Palestinian communities close by, the 17-year-old used the family’s savings to buy lambs to fatten up and sell in time for Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. He never got his investment back. Ignoring the limits set by the UN plan, Israel attacked Saffuriya one evening during Ramadan. It bombed the village from the air, “softening it up” before ground troops arrived from the south the following morning. Gunfire from the Israeli army propelled Saffuriya’s families northwards, forcing them to refugee camps in Lebanon. Taha recounts that flight in this extract from his poem There Was No Farewell (1988): We did not stay awake all night (and did not doze) the night of our leaving. That night we had neither night nor light, and no moon rose. That night we lost our star, our lamp misled us; we didnt receive our share of sleeplessness – so where would wakefulness have come from? Taha would spend several months in a Lebanese camp with his parents, two brothers and a sister.

If you thought Flappy Bird was frustratingly addictive, you're going to love this voice-activated version. Eight Note is rapidly going viral across Asia, with thousands of players literally screaming at their phones. SEE ALSO: Farewell, Flappy Bird The game sounds pretty simple. The character has to jump across blocks and avoid falling. The only catch? The character's jumps are controlled by the volume of your voice. It's pretty great to watch. A small murmur will cause the character to shuffle slightly, whereas a shrill scream will result in a huge leap. The game has two modes: Endless and Stages which are pretty self-explanatory.
