Sharks start Super Rugby with bonus point victory over the Bulls

first_imgMonday Feb 17, 2014 Sharks start Super Rugby with bonus point victory over the Bulls Pat Lambie scored a try after the hooter to give the Sharks a 31-16 bonus point victory over the Bulls in Durban on Saturday evening. There was controversy surrounding one of the tries though, and it has since been confirmed that it shouldn’t have been allowed.Impressive centre Paul Jordaan scored the Sharks’ first try after an excellent break by winger Lwazi Mvovo. Ten minutes later Jaco Reinach crossed following a lineout and the intervention of the TMO.It was ruled that lock Anton Bresler had not knocked the ball forward, or played his opponent in the air, but SANZAR referees boss Lyndon Bray has admitted that the try shouldn’t have been awarded.“We unfortunately got the TMO decision wrong,” said Bray. “The Sharks forward did knock the ball forward out of the Bulls player’s hands. Also, there was consideration to the fact that the Sharks player obstructed the Bulls player in the air.”Reinach was involved again on the stroke of halftime as he ripped the ball from number eight Pierre Spies before Francois Steyn’s crosskick set up Odwa Ndungane for a great try in the corner.Victor Matfield made his return to rugby after retiring in 2011, but he didn’t have much of an affect on the outcome. Coach Frans Ludeke believes that he is a classy player and he’ll continue to improve as the tournament goes on. On fulltime the Sharks were searching for a bonus-point try, and they got it following multiple phases after the hooter. Lambie took the try well, ending on a personal haul of 16 points.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Super Rugby 2014 Related Articles 376 WEEKS AGO Brilliant individual effort decides Crusaders… 377 WEEKS AGO The Best Tries scored in Round 5 of Super… 378 WEEKS AGO The Best Tries scored in Round 4 of Super… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Malcolm X and Black Lives Matter

first_imgRamiro Fúnez, Jane Ledesma, Monica Moorehead, Colin Ashley, Larry Holmes, Alexia Filpo and Simone Gamble. New York, Feb. 21. WW photo: Brenda RyanThe 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X was commemorated in many cities throughout the U.S. on the weekend of Feb. 21-22, with events that included street actions against police terror, speak-outs, forums, vigils and more.A common thread running through many activities was the use of Malcolm’s legacy to forward the current fight against all forms of imperialism, especially racism and national oppression, in the form of the Black Lives Matter movement — by any means necessary. Workers World Party held forums and participated in numerous events with other progressive forces to honor this great anti-racist, anti-imperialist leader. Several activities are described below.The Baltimore chapter of WWP and Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) youth group held a special joint forum to honor Malcolm X on Feb. 22.  Despite a major snowstorm, the Baltimore Solidarity Center meeting space was packed. All seats were filled by a diverse crowd of mostly young activists of all nationalities.Abayomi Azikiwe, Detroit, Feb 21.WW photo: Kris HamelThe event featured Larry Holmes, first secretary of WWP, who spoke on the legacy of Malcolm X and what it means for the Black Lives Matter movement.The program and discussion lasted more than three hours because of the number of lively questions and comments. The majority of participants came from the Black Lives Matter movement.It was standing room only at the Malcolm X tribute hosted by Detroit WWP and FIST on Feb. 21. Chaired by Tachae Davis, a member of both groups, the program included a video of an interview with Malcolm X as well as talks and a delicious soul food dinner.Marcina Cole spoke on the struggle to free political prisoner Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor, Mich., who is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 27. Pinkney was convicted on charges of allegedly forging dates on petitions to oust the city’s mayor.Joe Mchahwar of FIST and WWP presented the militant, anti-racist history of the Boston School Bus Drivers Union, United Steelworkers Local 8751, and told of the Veolia corporation’s campaign to bust the union and criminalize its leaders.Davis spoke about Assata Shakur, Black Panther Party member and political exile, who escaped from prison in 1979 and took refuge in revolutionary Cuba. Debbie Johnson of WWP exposed the role of the corporate media in perpetuating racist lies and urged the audience to read Workers World newspaper for revolutionary and working-class truth. After the meeting, copies were quickly grabbed up.‘Revolutionary Voice of Struggle and Liberation’Abayomi Azikiwe, a leader of the Moratorium NOW! Coalition and Detroit WWP, as well as editor of the Pan-African News Wire and WW contributing editor, gave the main presentation on the struggle legacy of Malcolm X. His powerful and informative talk, entitled “Malcolm X: Revolutionary Voice of Struggle and Liberation,” was published by Modern Ghana and can be read at tinyurl.com/qevsm8l.The New York City branch of WWP held “A Tribute to Malcolm X” forum at the Solidarity Center on Feb. 21. Despite a winter storm, a standing-room-only crowd participated in a more than two-hour dialogue on how the contributions made by Malcolm X impact the Black Lives Matter movement today.Opening remarks were made by Alexia Filpo and Colin Ashley from the Peoples Power Assembly; Simone Gamble from Brooklyn’s East Flatbush Cop Watch; Ramiro Fúnez from FIST and Larry Holmes from WWP. Three videos featuring Malcolm X were played.“A walk in his footsteps in Harlem,” organized by the PPA and Occu-Evolve, took place earlier that day. It started where Malcolm X once held street meetings at 125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, followed by a walk to the police precinct where he organized a protest against police brutality in 1957.The Buffalo, N.Y., Anti Racism Coalition hosted an event Feb. 22 to honor all young Black lives stolen by state violence, with speakers, poetry, music and a reading of Malcolm X’s words.The Los Angeles WWP branch organized a Feb. 21 film showing of Spike Lee’s 1992 feature film, “Malcolm X,” starring Denzel Washington. After the movie, a political discussion was held on how Pan-Africanism, international solidarity, the right of Black people to self-defense and other concepts popularized by Malcolm X apply to today’s movement against state violence and for Black Liberation.The Durham, N.C., branch of WWP held a “Malcolm X: Black Liberation and Black Lives Matter” forum on Feb. 21 at the Hayti Heritage Center. Featured speakers included Manzoor Cheema from Muslims for Social Justice and Larry Hales from WWP and PPA. The meeting explored the movement that Malcolm came to inspire and represent, his thoughts, political practice and militancy.Other Malcolm X/Black History Month WWP forums are scheduled for Philadelphia on Feb. 24 and Boston on Feb. 28.Contributors to this article include Sharon Black, Ellie Dorritie, Kris Hamel, Andy Katz and John Parker.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 28, 2017

first_img SHARE Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 28, 2017 SHARE A few tweaks to the forecast this morning. Generally, we are keeping similar rain totals for the overall 10 day period. But, we are spreading out the moisture that is coming in for the rest of this week, weekend and next week.First things first: we have a nice, sunny, dry day today still over the entire state. We are on the backside of a strong high-pressure dome and that will swing winds around to the south. In fact, those winds look to increase through the day, allowing for significant warming statewide, and a very breezy afternoon and evening. This will be a nice day over the state.Tomorrow, we still have a strong cold front moving toward us. However, it looks to not be quite as quick and the moisture is not leading the charge, at least at first. Our daytime precipitation tomorrow may be pretty light, with minimal coverage. The best showers and thunderstorms kick off tomorrow evening and then especially overnight and through Friday. We like our .25”-1” rain totals for the event, but most of that will come overnight tomorrow night through Friday. Coverage will end up around 80%.The biggest change in our forecast is on timing for the next system. AT this time, we look for a mostly dry start to the holiday weekend. WE think that Saturday and Sunday both can be dry, with our next system waiting until early next week. Clouds may still play a central role early Saturday, but it should be a warmer and more humid weekend in the wake of the front tomorrow night and Friday. Temps will be normal to above normal. This dry pattern actually stretches through the first part of Monday, but from late Monday afternoon right on through Tuesday the 4th, we can see our next strong wave move through. This front looks much more powerful, now that it has delayed a couple of days and strengthened. WE can see a rain of .5”-1.5” across 100% of the state. If severe weather develops, there is potential for some 2”+ showers of rain…but, for now, we are not going to hype those up. Still, what this means is that 1) we have plentiful rains coming as we start July, and 2) the holiday itself (4th) is hosed. The map shows a snapshot of the potential precipitation set up around midnight July 3rd…this pattern will lead to a wet 4th.Behind that system, much drier weather settles in for the balance of next week with high pressure in control. That pattern continues through the 11-16 day forecast window as well, and we think there may be an upper-level ridge developing for that period. What that means is that we can see very warm and dry weather developing late next week through mid-month. So, perhaps the heavy rain we have coming will be useful after all?

Confidential IOC memo on Olympic torch relay did not foresee major protests about human rights violations

first_imgNews April 9, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Confidential IOC memo on Olympic torch relay did not foresee major protests about human rights violations News Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more News News Help by sharing this information ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further Follow the news on Chinacenter_img ChinaAsia – Pacific China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison June 2, 2021 Find out more March 12, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Receive email alerts RSF_en China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Reporters Without Borders has obtained a copy of a confidential International Olympic Committee memo about the Olympic torch relay. Sent to national Olympic committees on 26 March, two days after the Reporters Without Borders protest at the torch-lighting ceremony in Olympia, it recognises that the Olympic movement may have to deal with “incidents” or “crisis” but it did not foresee the major protests on the streets of London and Paris.Reporters Without Borders is shocked by the cynicism of this IOC memo at a time when the Olympic movement is facing an historic crisis. The press freedom organisation is waiting for the Olympic movement to take firm decisions to get the Chinese authorities to release political prisoners, guarantee complete freedom for the foreign press and guarantee free expression in Tibet.In its 26-page memo, marked “confidential,” the IOC says it has worked with the Beijing Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG) to prepare “response protocols” for any crisis. National Olympic Committees are asked to follow the guidelines when responding to the press and to pressure groups.The IOC’s head of public relations, Giselle Davies, defines a crisis in these terms: “A crisis is any event or sequence of events that could potentially lead to the disruption or cancellation of a torch relay stop, or seriously affect the image of the IOC and the Olympic movement.” The example given is that of a terrorist attack during the relay.The IOC advises its members, national Olympic committees, sports federations and Olympic partners to be “humility” and “honesty” in order to avoid being put on the defensive by journalists’ questions. “The IOC should always remind the journalist/lobby group that the IOC’s influence lies in the sport arena.”The Olympic torch relay, which the Chinese are calling the “Journey of Harmony,” is portrayed by the IOC as the most “ambitious” of its kind since the start of the modern Olympic Games. The memo stresses that the BOCOG is in charge of organising each stage of the relay in coordination with the local authorities.As regards problems that could affect the torch relay, the memo lists “Security of bearers and spectators, Terrorism, Demonstrations, Mount Everest, Tibet, Taiwan and Tiananmen Square.” It shows that the issues of human rights and Tibet are at the heart of the Beijing Olympic Games despites the Chinese government’s denials. But instead of offering any substantive responses, the IOC gives instructions based essentially on China’s propaganda, which rejects any attempt to politicise the games.The ascent of Mount Everest with the torch is portrayed by the IOC as an opportunity to contribute “new meaning to the Olympic motto: Faster, Higher, Stronger.” It adds that taking the “torch to the top of Everest symbolises that there are no limits to the reach of Olympic values.”As regards the controversial ascent of Everest, the IOC says it respects the rights of demonstrators but adds that “the BOCOG and local authorities along the relay will not hesitate to take action if and when needed to ensure the safety of the torch-bearer and the climbing team.” In general, the Lausanne-based IOC says it refuses to “interfere with the actions deemed necessary by local authorities to maintain order and local law.”Defending the decision to hold a ceremony in honour of the Olympic flame on Tiananmen Square, the IOC calls it one of “the most famous public squares in the world.” It also says it was the Beijing organisers who decided to make the square the starting point for the marathon. Reiterating that the Olympic torch’s message of one of harmony and humanity, the memo adds: “The IOC is a sport organisation. It is not appropriate for us to dictate the usage of sites that may have an historical and political significance for large numbers of people.”The IOC and BOCOG give examples of the kind of “crisis” that could occur during the torch relay. As regards demonstrations, the two organisations say they will tell the media that it is normal that some group try to use the relay to “put their cause in the news spotlight that the Beijing Olympic Games attracts.”If the relatives of “disappeared” persons demonstrate during the relay, the memo recommends saying that one shares the concerns of the families and hopes the Chinese authorities will shed light on the matter. And it is again recommended that responsibility should be put on the human rights organisations that use the games to promote their cause. In the event of an “extreme crisis,” the IOC and BOCOG suggest making no comment or – the height of cynicism – expressing condolences with any victims.In order to help the Olympic movement’s various actors handle any incident or crisis, the memo announces that a Crisis Management Team has been created under the leadership of IOC president Jacques Rogge. But it adds that the BOCOG is in charge of taking any necessary action in the field.The memo finally reiterates the need not to interfere in China’s internal affairs: “The IOC does not feel it is appropriate to question the rules and laws of a country. (…) This does not mean, however, that the IOC cannot demonstrate that its supports freedom of expression.”Reporters Without Borders says: “IOC president Jacques Rogge is not going to extricate these Olympics from this predicament by preventing athletes, including French athletes, from expressing their views. On the contrary, he must convince the Chinese government to completely change its approach to the games. It is no longer the time to be saying, as this memo does, that criticising China will just create ‘resentment and complications.’ The time has come for action to save what remains of the Olympic spirit for the Beijing games.” last_img read more

Period of stability key to region’s recovery

first_imgNewsLocal NewsPeriod of stability key to region’s recoveryBy admin – November 25, 2010 487 Twitter Linkedin LIMERICK people are afraid to part with their money ahead of Budget 2011 as they don’t know how much will be left in their pockets, but with a general election on the horizon, hopes have been expressed by the local business community that such an eventuality could spark increased growth and stability in the region. Maria Kelly, CEO Limerick Chamber, insists it is “most important that the Government gets its budget and four-year plan through to meet the conditions of the IMF and the EU”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Her comments came after Taoiseach, Brian Cowen declared on Monday he will call a general election early in the new year, “as soon as the budget process has been seen through”. Noting that the within the next two years, a declining Limerick city centre and indeed, the economic picture as a whole, could see a return to growth, Ms Kelly told the Limerick Post that the reaction to the IMF has been somewhat peculiar.“We have been in free-fall for some time and we have never hit the bottom, but maybe now we have hit the bottom, and I hope that the political parties recognise the importance of seeing this process through and then let the people have their say in the new year”.However, Ms Kelly, adopting a positive stance, revealed she had spoken to many business owners who had acknowledged a substantial increase in their turnover, and she expressed confidence that 2011 could see a return for the majority of those that suffered at the front-line of the economy.This sentiment is echoed by Graham Byrnes, regional director at CPL, who says that he would welcome the announcement of the general election as he feels that Limerick is in need of representation at the Cabinet table. “We need stability here, and potential investors crave certainty if multinationals are to set up in the region, while allowing exporters to avail of opportunity.“Companies are hiring and we have seen an increase in demand to fill jobs, but this needs to grow once the size of this financial bail out is identified. Ireland and indeed, Limerick, has seen an increase in competitiveness as salaries and costs have fallen.“Now is the time for direct foreign investment to pick up an educated workforce. It is two years now since the Dell closure and with the support of grants and training stimulus packages, Limerick is getting back on its feet”.Commentators and the business community are embracing the announcement of a general election on the whole, citing a period of stability as the key to recovery.
