The Rugby Championship Review: New Zealand

first_imgLA PLATA, ARGENTINA – SEPTEMBER 29: Richie McCaw, the All Blacks captain celebrates after his team win the inaugural Rugby Chamionship after their victory in the Rugby Championship match between Argentina and the New Zealand All Blacks at Estadio Ciudad de La Plata on September 29, 2012 in La Plata, Argentina. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Their level of execution, strength-in-depth and obsession with being the best is the envy of very other rugby nation. What everyone else is wondering however, is are the All Blacks at their peak? And if so, can they be caught?Star Player: Owen FranksWhile McCaw may justifiably take the plaudits, Franks continues to develop into one of the world’s best props. Not solely an excellent operator at the set-piece, the Crusader is very useful around the paddock and made more tackles than any other front rower at an average of nearly nine tackles a game. Conceding only three penalties in six matches is another impressive statistic to back up his burgeoning credentials.Rising Talent: Luke Romano Replacing Brad Thorn is no easy task, but Luke Romano is making a pretty decent fist of it. The 26-year old Crusader held the No 4 shirt for the majority of this year’s tournament and finished it with enough stitches to his face to show that Thorn’s durability lives on. He faces tough competition from Brodie Retallick for his shirt, but for the moment he is the man in possession of the shirt.Follow Ben Coles on Twitter @bencoles_ LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The world’s greatest: Richie McCaw became the first player to reach 100 Test winsby Ben ColesFinished: 1stALL HAIL the All Blacks. Six wins out of six and a 14 point gap between the champions and second placed Australia show just how far ahead of the rest of the world New Zealand are right now. In fact, to rub salt into the wound, they nilled their Tasman rivals for the first time since 1962 with the 22-0 victory at Eden Park.The other major landmark was Richie McCaw reaching 100 Test wins, the first player to ever reach three figures with an astonishing win percentage of 89.28%. Regarded by many as the greatest flanker of all time, McCaw was outstanding throughout the inaugural Rugby Championship, making more tackles than anyone else with an average of 13 per game. It’s clear that before the most capped All Black of all time takes his sabbatical next year, he plans to leave everything out on the field.McCaw was not alone in producing peerless performances. Daniel Carter returned to finish as the tournament’s top points scorer with 58. Ma’a Nonu made the absence of Sonny Bill Williams feel completely insignificant. Cory Jane finished with five tries in six matches to bounce back after a disappointing Super Rugby tournament. Aaron Smith continued to show why he is the All Black No 9 for the future, scoring a try in each of the last three matches.At their best New Zealand are simply unplayable, but there were moments of concern when they conceded early tries against Argentina both at home and away, and also in the final match against South Africa. Those worries however, of course, were forgotten by the final whistle as the All Blacks hit the accelerator.Now unbeaten in their last 16 matches since their loss to Australia in the final of last year’s Tri-Nations, New Zealand will look to break the record for the longest winning streak in Tests on their tour of the Northern Hemisphere this November, with the current longest streak of 18 matches held by, surprisingly, Lithuania.last_img read more

For creating the feeling of being surrounded by the treetops, the refuge was raised from the ground, creating a space under it, where it is possible to do outside activities.

The idea of minimal interference extends to the limit, so there is no construction for the parking area and accesses, these are made by trails on the ground.Save this picture!© André ScarpaThe structure was designed as panels made of metal tubular steel profiles, previously built on frames, and only welded in place. The exterior is lined with cementitious slab on the sides to stop some of the late afternoon suns. The interior has thermoacoustic insulation coated with plywood lightly dyed in white. The roof is made with metallic layered tiles and the interior trimming liner keeps the interior cozy and even.

Shell cancels Arctic drilling, for now

first_imgRoyal Dutch Shell Oil announced on Sept. 28 that it is shutting down — for now — its drilling operations in the Arctic Ocean off the coast of northern Alaska.For three years, Indigenous community and environmental groups have waged a fierce “sHell No!” campaign against the corporation’s $7 billion program to drill for and extract billions of gallons of oil and natural gas from wells in the Arctic’s harsh environment. The Obama administration had approved the oil giant’s drilling plans.Indigenous activists protest in 2013.Photo: priceofoil.orgLast spring, thousands of protesters massed at Shell’s company terminal in Seattle, while some activists in kayaks even tried to block the oil company’s drilling rig from leaving the harbor.At the end of July, activists dangled on cables strung from the high St. John’s Bridge over the Willamette River for an entire day to block a Shell Oil support vessel. Sixty other protesters were in kayaks in the river below. This followed another action by 200 kayakers a week earlier.Already, activist groups had forced the oil giant to cut in half its drilling this past summer. They drew attention to noise violations that threatened polar bears, walruses and other wildlife caused by Shell’s planned simultaneous drilling in another nearby site. The government agreed with the activists’ argument.Certainly the strong campaign of Indigenous groups and environmentalists, which aroused massive public opposition to the drilling, was a factor in Shell’s decision. They are rightfully declaring Shell’s decision to withdraw its rigs a victory. “Big oil has sustained an unmitigated defeat,” said John Sauven, Greenpeace’s executive director, on Sept. 28 at the organization’s blog.Arctic drilling’s dangersNot only are fisheries and wildlife in the area directly threatened by the drilling there, but the extraction and burning of this oil would result in a huge increase in worldwide carbon emissions and global warming. The climate in the Arctic regions is already warming at twice the rate of that of the rest of the globe. This severely threatens the livelihoods of the Indigenous communities in the area who depend on hunting and fishing.The Obama administration has taken a public stance against burning fossil fuels. Yet its “Energy Department advisory council called for an immediate expansion of oil exploration in the American Arctic to avoid an increased reliance on imported oil in the future,” — in part, because it would take more than 10 years for oil in the Arctic to get to market, said Hawaii News on Sept. 28.The same article reported, “The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that American Arctic waters in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas contain 26 billion barrels or more of recoverable oil.”As Workers World newspaper pointed out on Sept. 3, the Pentagon had already drawn up plans to parade its naval fleet in the steadily melting Arctic Ocean to back up Big Oil’s dangerous oil drilling with military force.Oil prices downAnother consideration in the oil giant’s decision to quit the Arctic is that oil prices have decreased over the past year from more than $100 a barrel to today’s price of $45. With a stagnant global economy and the current glut in oil stockpiles, Shell reckoned that the expensive drilling in the Arctic Ocean’s harsh environment would not generate enough profits.That could change. Big Oil and the rest of the U.S.’s capitalist class, government and Navy are all waiting with baited breath for oil prices to rise. If that happens, the oil companies will waste no time resuming their drilling ventures, no matter what the catastrophic cost to the Arctic and global environments.All the terrible effects of global warming, such as drought, wildfires, flooding and increasing storms, mean nothing to the imperialists in their insatiable thirst for greater and greater profits.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fort Wayne Farm Show Changes Dates for 2021

first_img SHARE SHARE By Gary Truitt – Nov 24, 2020 Home Indiana Agriculture News Fort Wayne Farm Show Changes Dates for 2021 This fall many farm trade shows went virtual or some even canceled, including the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo. The Fort Wayne Farm Show has taken a different approach.Historically held in January, health officials and show producers, Trade Expos, felt the current COVID-19 outbreak would make a January show too dangerous.  Show Manager Fred Cline said pushing the show back to March was something exhibitors and Allen County health officials were comfortable with.“It seemed that trying to produce a show in January was just too dangerous. But holding off and having the show at a later date gave the opportunity for things to change.”The new show dates are March 9-11, and keep the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday format of the event that draws thousands from a three state area.“Hopefully, looking at those dates, we will be in a different world. We may have a vaccine by then,” said Cline.He added that Allen County health officials felt the situation would be improved by March. Kline said the later dates will also help the seminar series by allowing the presenters to be in person rather than virtual.“Purdue and the SWCD will present the seminars again; and, with the later dates, they hope to have presenters in person and not on a screen.”The March dates will still be in advance of planting and may even provide some more favorable weather in NE Indiana. Kline told HAT they had given some consideration to a virtual show, but they had received feedback from exhibitors that they would not then participate.

Journalist sentenced to a year in prison on trumped-up charges

first_img Follow the news on Tunisia November 11, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is stunned by the one-year prison sentence imposed today on journalist Slim Boukhdir by a district court in Sakiet Ezzit, a suburb of Sfax (230 km south of Tunis) on charges of insulting behaviour towards an official, affront to public decency and refusing to produce his identity papers.Boukhdir has been in custody ever since police arrested him on the outskirts of Sfax on the morning of 26 November while checking the ID papers of passengers in a collective taxi bound for Tunis.“Tunisian journalists are often jailed on grounds unrelated to their work so that the authorities cannot be accused of censorship,” the press freedom organisation said. “But no one is fooled. Boukhdir is paying the price for being outspoken. Banned from working for the government newspaper that used to employ him and harassed by the police, Boukhdir has never stopped covering the human rights violations committed under President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali.” Reporters Without Borders added: “We appeal to foreign diplomats in Tunisia to openly express their support for Boukhdir as quickly as possible or else his sentence will be confirmed on appeal and he will have to stay in jail. The hope of an improvement in press freedom that followed the release of human rights lawyer Mohammed Abbou in July has evaporated.”At the end of today’s trial, judge Hatem Ouerda sentenced Boukhdir to eight months in prison for “insulting behaviour towards an official in the exercise of his duty,” four months in prison for “affront to public decency” and five dinars (2.8 euros) for “refusing to produce his identity papers.”His lawyer, Radia Nasraoui, told Reporters Without Borders the trial was marred by “procedural irregularities.” The judge refused to listen to the defence’s arguments and let two witnesses – the collective taxi driver and one of the passengers – testify without taking an oath, she said. The judge in charge of the case refused to release Boukhdir on bail the day after his arrest, and now he will have to remain in detention until his appeal is heard.Aged 39, Boukhdir is the correspondent of the London-based, pan-Arab newspaper Al Quds Al Arabi and the website of the satellite TV station Al-Arabiya. He also writes for other websites such as Tunisnews and Kantara.President Ben Ali is on the Reporters Without Borders list of the world’s 34 worst press freedom predators.One the same subject:28.11.2007 – Judge orders journalist detained until trial TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News Reporters Without Borders is stunned by the one-year prison sentence imposed on journalist Slim Boukhdir. “Tunisian journalists are often jailed on grounds unrelated to their work so that the authorities cannot be accused of censorship.

Gallo Report clears first hurdle

first_imgNews May 31, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Gallo Report clears first hurdle Organisation Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News French MEP Marielle Gallo’s report on online file-sharing and copyright infringement was approved today by the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) by 13 votes (EPP and ALDE) to 8 (Greens and S&D). Four amendments were adopted against the rapporteur’s advice but they made no substantive change to the report, which retains its very dogmatic and repressive character (http://www.laquadrature.net/en/gallo-report-copyright-dogmatism-wins-a-battle-not-the-war).The Gallo Report will now be submitted to a full session of the parliament on 14 June and will be put to a vote the following day. Further amendments will be possible only if the Conference of Presidents agrees that it has “strategic” importance for the European Union. Some of the parliamentary groups could decide to present an alternative report.The report is not legislative in nature but, once approved by the parliament, it will influence the measures adopted by the European Commission. These will probably take the form of a new Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive (IPRED 2) designed to standardise the criminal penalties used to enforce intellectual property rights throughout the European Union.The major amendments proposed by the report’s critics were rejected by the Legal Affairs Committee. French MEP Françoise Castex wrote on her website: “By likening file-sharing for non-commercial purposes to counterfeiting and theft, Marielle Gallo and the European right are, like the ACTA, proposing to criminalise millions of Internet users (http://www.francoisecastex.org/).Such repressive policies would probably violate individual freedoms, including freedom of expression.—————————————————————–31/05/2010Concern about report’s call for repressive approach to online copyright violationsReporters Without Borders is worried about a report by French MEP Marielle Gallo of the European People’s Party recommending a more repressive approach to online file-sharing and copyright infringement similar to France’s Hadopi law or Britain’s Digital Economy Act. The report will be submitted to the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) tomorrow.The press freedom organisation supports the amendments to the Gallo Report being proposed by the EPP’s opponents. Once the committee has adopted the report and submitted it to the full parliament, no more amendments will be possible.“This report on measures for copyright enforcement will not have legislative effect but it could establish the parliament’s position on this issue and facilitate an unsatisfactory outcome to the negotiations on the ACTA, the proposed international treaty against counterfeiting,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The report fails to take account of studies that cast doubt on the negative impact of file-sharing and the damage resulting from illegal downloading,” Reporters Without Borders added. “The repressive measures it recommends would also be completely ineffective while violating such fundamental rights as freedom of expression, access to culture and the right to due process. Creativity is stimulated by online exchanges. Once again, a balance must be found between intellectual property rights and free expression.”Two parliamentary groups are at odds over the report. On the one side is Gallo’s right-of-centre EPP, the largest group in the European Parliament, which supports her call for punitive measures against peer-to-peer exchanges, bypassing the need to refer to a judge, and the creation of a private copyright police. It would be a setback for all those who regard the Internet as a basic right and oppose a “graduated response” leading to the disconnection of illegal downloaders.The other camp consists of the Greens, the Socialists & Democrats (S&D) and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE). It does not dispute the need for measures to combat counterfeiting, as proposed by French MEP Françoise Castex, the report’s co-author. But it opposes repression and the criminalisation of Internet users and wants alternative mechanisms and a creative contribution.The Gallo Reports acknowledges that the information about copyright violations is “inconsistent, , incomplete, insufficient and patchy.” Aside from the TERA report, a study commissioned by Vivendi that claims that illegal downloading will result in the loss of 1.2 million jobs by 2015, the leading studies have found that its effect is neutral or even positive. US judicial authorities even concluded that the methodology of studies claiming financial losses were invalid.

Newark Valley man accused of stealing from Walmart and displaying BB gun

first_img Your Crime & Courts news is made possible with support from: Kelsey O’Connor ITHACA, N.Y. — Ithaca police have arrested a man from Newark Valley who allegedly shoplifted from Walmart and when confronted by employees, displayed what appeared to be a handgun. However, it turned out to be a BB gun, according to police.Officers from the Ithaca Police Department responded to a report of a person displaying a handgun during a shoplifting incident at Walmart in Ithaca. When approached by police, the man, identified as 37-year-old Gregory Desamours, allegedly placed his hand on the handle of what looked like a handgun tucked into the waist of his pants before fleeing the store with about $150 in stolen merchandise. With a description of the vehicle, police said they were able to locate the vehicle with Desamours nearby between Lowes and Spring Buffet. They ordered five people out of the vehicle, police said in a news release.Police said Desamours admitted the BB gun was his, and two BB guns were located in the vehicle. Police said the BB gun could “easily be mistaken for a real handgun.”Desamours was charged with petit larceny and processed at the Ithaca Police Department. He was issued an appearance ticket for a later appearance in Ithaca City Court.He was then turned over to New York State Police for warrants related to other charges in another jurisdiction, police said. He had a warrant for petit larceny from Hopewell Town Court, according to Aga Dembinska, public information officer for NYSP Troop C.A second passenger in the vehicle was also wanted for unrelated charges and also turned over to NYSP.
