The Rugby Club Plays of the Week – Lets get excited

first_imgThursday Mar 3, 2011 The Rugby Club Plays of the Week – Lets get excited It’s that time of the week again. Yep, time to look back at the best and worst of the weekend’s goings on in Super Rugby down south. This week’s Plays of the Week with Fox Sports is a roller coaster ride of the best bits from Round 2, squeezed into just two minutes.This week we won’t be doing a RD Pick of the Weekas there were some off-field, personal goings on that needed to be attended to. So while Round 1’s compilation of trieswent quite well, I hope that we’ve at least made up for week 2 by bringing you highlights from every game.Throw in the Plays of the Week from the Australian Rugby Club, and we’ve had a decent helping of clips from Super Rugby, on a weekend where the Rebels beat the Brumbies, the Crusaders and Hurricanes shared their points, and the champion Bulls got out of jail with a late kick.There were a few decent hits too, which are included here, and of course there’s a clich check, this week hosted by young Jaco Taute of the Lions, who nailed it.On another note, big congrats to regular voice over expert Sean Maloney on the birth of his little girl. He told me earlier that all went well, and he’s looking forward to finally having some company for the early morning Super Rugby games from South Africa, which can be at 4am for those in Australia! I’m sure he’ll be back for the Playsagain next week. For now, enjoy.

Joe Marler smashes big wing George North at Franklin’s Gardens

first_imgSunday Jan 5, 2014 Joe Marler smashes big wing George North at Franklin’s Gardens Prop Joe Marler made a huge tackle on big Northampton Saints, Wales and Lions wing George North during Harlequins meeting with the Saints this weekend. Here is a quick look at the hit as well as highlights from the match. Saints won the match 23-9 and North scored a well taken try after bumping off a far smaller challenge in the form of Charlie Walker, but when up against Marler he came off second best.“Young Charlie Walker is a talented player but when you’re one on one with George, you have to make sure you make a good tackle,” said Jim Mallinder of the impressive North try. “We needed that from George, it was fantastic to see him score in the corner.”George Pisi also made a huge hit, but his was of the illegal vareity and he was sinbinned.

Seattle edge Glendale to claim inaugural Major League Rugby title in the USA

first_imgMonday Jul 9, 2018 Seattle edge Glendale to claim inaugural Major League Rugby title in the USA The inaugural season of Major League Rugby in the USA came to a close as the Seattle Seawolves defeated the Glendale Raptors 23-19 in San Diego. While both sides scored three tries apiece, the Seawolves penalties made the difference. The opening 40 minutes proved to be a defensive battle with the Seawolves taking an 8-7 lead into the break. Glendale then jumped out a 19-8 lead courtesy of strong driving mauls and capitalizing on Seattle turnovers.That is when Seattle’s trademarked ‘SeaWall’ defence kicked in. Outside centre William Rasileka and eight-man Riekert Hattingh, the son of former Springbok lock Drikus, put together consecutive tries for a one-point lead, 20-19.A penalty kick for good measure was all the Seawolves needed to upset the top-ranked Raptors.Seattle’s Vili Toluta’u was named Most Valuable Player. Despite one horrific error in particular, the flanker was always in the mix jackalling the ball in the ruck, finding a Glendale ball-carrier to tackle and placing his teammates in a position to gain the upper hand and achieve victory.Seattle head coach and scrumhalf Phil Mack, the Canadian 7s legend, said after the match:“We are really proud to have fronted up and play a full 80 minutes against them. That’s the recipe to beat Glendale, you can’t take any breaks.“This group has been so much this year that when our backs have been against the wall, the cohesiveness of the team really showed in the come back. Bringing back the title to Seattle just reinforces the fact that professional rugby belongs in the Pacific Northwest.”By the look of things, professional rugby belongs in the USA too, as the inaugural season of MLR appears to have gone smoothly and captured the imagination of rugby fans across the nation.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

By an almost 40m wide cobblestone street that integrates a very generous lineal park full of tress is located “Home and Studio”. Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe plot has a 330m2 surface (11 x 30 north-south) and its topography is completely flat. It is located in the border of two contrasted realities in México: south, it overlooks a lineal park full of eucalyptus trees that belong to one of the city´s privileged colonies; north, it overlooks a mosaic of rooftops and water tanks from a low-income part of the city. Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe project had to optimize all kind of resources: economical, energetic, time and land. Also the family requested to have a big garden and distant views.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasIn order to take the most from the immediate context, the house is oriented south, towards the trees, the park and the winter sun. That also reinforced the park´s security as the house gives a sense of vigilance by opening the windows towards it.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasIn this street there is no setback regulation which allows the project to occupy 100% of the plot. The architect also decided that the studio had to be an extension of the house so he wouldn’t waste time in transportation and save money from expenses from an office elsewhere. Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasDescription:The first level is above the street level in order to generate an extension of the visuals from the terrace-salon benefiting from the wide street and creating a “garden-balcony” that makes the house more secure by being in a higher level than the street.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe house has four levels: the basement (street level) that occupies the most possible surface so that the three other levels were slimmer and concentrated on the back to liberate the front and have more space for the garden-balcony above the garage and the studio.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe studio is completely independent from the house. For both, you access from the street level by different doors. The studio ventilates and illuminates from a patio that connects with the garden from a “hole” delimitated from the garden by tall, translucid crystals that contribute for a shared intimacy.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe house is staggered at its northern end to maintain a proportional scale with the neighbors at the southern end. Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe library crowns the house on the fourth floor with a longitudinal tunnel vault which follows the direction of the space. It is a generous place where you can enjoy the free visuals both north and south. Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasSome of the materials used for “home and studio”  are recycled, like the waste from the marble that was used to cover some walls, was used in smaller pieces as a mosaic.  Project gallerySee allShow lessTourist Centre on Klekovaca Mountain International CompetitionArticlesSnøhetta Unveils Version 3.0 of San Francisco’s Golden State Warriors’ StadiumUnbuilt Project Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Zapopan, Mexico Home and Studio / Juan Ignacio Castiello ArquitectosSave this projectSaveHome and Studio / Juan Ignacio Castiello Arquitectos Year:  Save this picture!© Mito Covarrubias+ 28 Share Home and Studio / Juan Ignacio Castiello Arquitectos Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/472771/home-and-studio-juan-ignacio-castiello-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” Architects: Juan Ignacio Castiello Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Houses 2010 2010 CopyAbout this officeJuan Ignacio Castiello ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZapopanHousesMexicoPublished on February 03, 2014Cite: “Home and Studio / Juan Ignacio Castiello Arquitectos” 03 Feb 2014.

‘The Murder of Fred Hampton’ still resonates today

first_imgA packed hall of mainly young activists attended a showing of the remastered 1971 documentary, “The Murder of Fred Hampton,” at the Solidarity Center in New York City on Dec. 7.  The film showing was co-sponsored by the Peoples Power Assemblies/NYC and Workers World Party.Makasi MotemaHampton had been the chairperson of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party and deputy chair of the national BPP. At the age of 21, he was assassinated by police on Dec. 4, 1969, while asleep next to his partner, Deborah Johnson, who was eight months pregnant. Following this cowardly act on the part of both Chicago and state police, demonstrations sprang up around the country calling to “Avenge Fred Hampton.” Makasi Motema, a leader of the PPA, introduced the film by providing historical background on the Panthers.  Motema talked about the Panthers’ stance on self-defense against racist state terror and also their programs that provided free breakfasts for children, free medical care and free revolutionary education for Black communities around the country.  The film showed the interaction between the Panthers and the people they were serving.  Larry Holmes, First Secretary of WWP, praised the Panthers for their position on fighting racism and for upholding the right to self-determination of all oppressed peoples, an ongoing global class struggle today.  Holmes remarked that the Panthers were the most dynamic Black Liberation organization during the mid-1960s and early 1970s, which sought to unite with other like-minded revolutionaries and movements.  For example, on Aug. 15, 1970, one year after the historic Stonewall Rebellion in New York City, BPP Minister of Defense Huey P. Newton stated: “Homosexuals are not our enemies.”  After the film showing, Fred Hampton, Jr. spoke to the audience by telephone, quoting his dad’s revolutionary message:  “Dare to struggle, dare to win.”  — Report by Monica Moorehead FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Major decline in freedom of information since army takeover

first_img RSF_en Organisation May 21, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Major decline in freedom of information since army takeover Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution News Help by sharing this information EgyptMiddle East – North Africa January 22, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Egypt With an eye to Egypt’s 26-27 May presidential election and Field Marshal Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi’s probable victory, Reporters Without Borders has compiled the following overview of the impact of the past 11 months of Sisi-backed rule on the media, journalists and freedom of information in Egypt.Although the new constitution, adopted by referendum in January, guarantees freedom of information, the situation on the ground has been bad and the lists of journalists who have been arrested or killed and media that have been closed are long.“Respect for media freedom has declined considerably since the army seized power,” said Reporters Without Borders research director Lucie Morillon. “At least 65 journalists have been arrested and 17 are still in detention. We urge the authorities to respect the new constitution, which guarantees media freedom. All the journalists currently held must be released at once and all charges against them must be dismissed.”Six journalists killedA total of six journalists have been killed by live rounds since President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood government was deposed on 3 July 2013. Most were killed while covering pro-Morsi demonstrations.The first victim was Ahmed Samir Assem El-Senoussi, a photographer for the newspaper Al-Horreya-Wal-Adalah (Freedom and Justice), who sustained a fatal gunshot injury while covering clashes outside the Republican Guard building in Cairo on 8 July.Sky News cameraman Mick Deane, Ahmed Abdel Gawad, a reporter for the Egyptian daily Al-Akhbar, and photojournalist Mosab Al-Shami were killed while covering clashes between police and pro-Morsi demonstrators in Cairo’s Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square on 14 August, one of the darkest days for the media in modern Egyptian history.Tamer Abdel Raouf, the Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram’s regional bureau chief, was shot dead at an army checkpoint in Damanhur, in the northern governorate of Beheira, on the night of 19 August.Mayada Ashraf, a reporter for the Al-Dostour daily newspaper and the Masr Al-Arabiyya news website, was fatally shot in the head as she was covering a demonstration that Muslim Brotherhood supporters organized in the eastern Cairo district of Ain Shams on 28 March in response to the announcement that Field Marshal Sisi would be a presidential candidate.No independent and impartial investigations have so far been carried out with the aim of identifying those responsible for the deaths of these journalists.Many arrestsThe number of arrests of journalists during the past 11 months is particularly disturbing. According to the tally kept by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), more than 65 journalists were arrested for varying periods of time between 3 July and 30 April.The authorities systematically target media and journalists affiliated (or regarded as sympathetic) to the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been banned again. This witch-hunt against suspected Brotherhood supporters, which affects Turkish, Palestinian and Syrian journalists as well as Egyptian ones, violates the new constitution. Trumped-up charges are used to keep journalists in detention.A total of 17 journalists are currently detained, according to the CPJ. They include three Al-Jazeera journalists who were arrested on 29 December: Cairo bureau chief Mohamed Adel Fahmy, Australian reporter Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed. Their trial, along with the trial of 17 other alleged Al-Jazeera journalists, began on 20 February and has been repeatedly adjourned ever since.A total of 20 people identified by the authorities as Al-Jazeera journalists (including four foreign journalists) are being prosecuted on charges of attacking national unity and social peace, spreading false reports and (in the case of those who are Egyptian) membership of a “terrorist organization.” Eight of these 20 defendants are detained while the other 12 are being tried in absentia. Al-Jazeera says only four of these defendants are its employees. The trial of the Al-Jazeera journalists is emblematic of the current situation of freedom of information in Egypt.Abdullah Al-Shami, one of the confirmed Al-Jazeera journalists being held, has been detained since 14 August although no formal charges have been brought against him. He has been on hunger strike since 21 January in protest against the arbitrary nature of his detention, which was extended for another 45 days on 3 May.He was secretly transferred to the Al-Aqrab (Scorpion) high-security wing of the Tora prison complex in southern Cairo on 12 May, although his lawyer says his state of health is now very worrying.Like Shami, Mahmoud Abu Zied, a photographer for the Demotix and Corbis agencies, has been held since his arrest in Cairo’s Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square on 14 August and is also currently held in Tora prison. Yaqeen website reporters Saaid Shihata and Ahmed Gamal, arrested on 30 December while covering clashes between police and students at Cairo’s Al-Azhar university, are being held on charges of participating in an illegal demonstration and insulting a police officer.El-Masdr reporter Karim Shalaby, who was arrested while covering an anti-government demonstration on 25 January, is also charged with participating in an illegal demonstration. Abdel Rahman Shaheen, a correspondent for Al-Horreya-Wal-Adalah (Freedom and Justice), a website affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood, is being held on a charge of inciting violence following his arrest on 3 April.Samah Ibrahim, a reporter for the same site who was arrested on 14 January while covering a pro-Morsi march, was sentenced on 17 March to a year of forced labour. This was reduced on appeal to six months in prison and a fine of 50,000 Egyptian pounds (5,300 euros).Detaining journalists arbitrarily in this manner violates the new constitution, especially article 71.The extreme polarization of the Egyptian media (into pro and anti-Morsi factions) is reinforcing the polarization of Egyptian society. As confirmed since the start of the election campaign, many media openly support the current government and, as a result, are not performing the watchdog role that the media are supposed to play in a democratic society. to go furthercenter_img News Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison February 6, 2021 Find out more February 1, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News News Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison stafflast_img read more

Next: Putting $331M Toward Affordable Housing and Foreclosure A survey by the National Association of Business Economics (NABE) revealed that most of the surveyed economists believe a recession will begin by 2020 or 2021.“Survey respondents indicate that the expansion will be extended by the shift in monetary policy, and most expect the next economic recession will occur later than anticipated when the February policy survey was conducted,” said NABE President and Chief Economist Constance Hunter. The survey states that of the 98% who believe a recession will come after 2019, the panel is split between whether it will arrive in 2020 or 2021. The August 2019 NAbE Economic Policy Survey is compiled with the responses of 226 members of the NABE. “Respondent attitudes towards current fiscal policy have shifted significantly as well,” Hunter said. The report states that 51% of respondents feel that fiscal policies are “too stimulative,” with 37% saying they are “about right.” Eight percent said current policies are too restrictive. “Similar shares of panelists believe that the primary objective of current fiscal policy should either be to stimulate more robust economic growth in the medium-to-long term (40%) or to reduce the deficit and debt (37%). Another 15% believe fiscal policy should be used primarily to address income inequality,” the report states. On possible ways to increase revenue, 55% of respondents said there should be a broadening of the individual or corporate tax base and 53% said to enact a broader-based energy or carbon tax. Thirty-two percent of respondents agreed that interest rates for both individuals and corporations should rise. The state of the economy and the threat of a possible recession has been at the forefront of economic across the nation. Stocks tumbled last week, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 800 points and the 10-year and 2-year Treasury yields inverting for the first time since 2005.Since then, though, the market has bounced back, and as of 6 p.m. CDT Monday the Dow increased by nearly 1%.
