Rugby World Cup Daily – France to wear white as Craig Joubert gets final

first_imgMonday Oct 17, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – France to wear white as Craig Joubert gets final After another weekend of controversy, the referee for the World Cup final between New Zealand and France has been named as South African Craig Joubert. In other news, France will wear white in the final, so New Zealand can wear their traditional black. In 2007 France famously beat New Zealand in Cardiff with the All Blacks forced to wear their alternate grey strip that clearly didn’t work out too well for them. This year France won the coin toss to determine the home side, but allowed New Zealand to have the choice of wearing their famous black kit.“We decided to allow the All Blacks the choice to play in black. For us it is a sign of respect and a way for our team to thank New Zealanders for a remarkable World Cup,” said French team manager Jo Maso.“It is an honour to play the All Blacks when they play in their black jerseys and it is logical with the World Cup final being held at Eden Park,” he added.The gesture seemed a little lost of Graham Henry though. “We’re the All Blacks, we’re playing at home and we wear black, so it’s an obvious one. But I do thank him,” he said.The other big news of the day is that France are now ranked third in the world, having moved into that position following their win over Wales on the weekend. Wales drop to sixth but can make up ground with a third place play off win. Australia remain second despite their loss to New Zealand, while South Africa move out of the top three for the first time in a while.Craig Joubert will take charge of the final after having had a solid tournament with the whistle. In today’s RWC Daily there’s a bit of a chat with him, some random cooking classes, and New Zealand coach Henry talks about preparing for the World Cup Final. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

GOSH Charity & Sparks announce merger

first_img Tagged with: mergers Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and Sparks are to merge at the end of this financial year, their joint Chief Executive Louise Parkes has announced. Sparks launched 30 years ago and funds child health research. It joined GOSH Charity as a partner in 2017 to share resources and expertise. As part of the partnership, since then Sparks has contributed £2.2million to the jointly funded National Call, which funds medical research projects that could diagnose, treat and potentially cure rare childhood conditions.Sparks is the smaller charity of the two and has been hard hit by the Covid crisis, with much of its fundraising reliant on events. As a result and to ensure that resources continue to be used efficiently moving forward, the two charities have made the decision to fully merge Sparks into GOSH Charity by the end of March next year.In a letter posted on both charities’ sites, Chief Executive Louise Parkes comments:“We have made this decision, as being a single charity is the most efficient use of our resources moving forward, and it means we can make the biggest difference possible to the critically ill children we exist to help.“Our decision to merge Sparks with GOSH Charity does not change our commitment to funding paediatric research nationally, and investing in the work of scientists and researchers who are working around the clock to find ways to change and save children’s lives, remains a top priority for us.“By taking this decision to merge we can guarantee the continuation of Sparks’ important work as GOSH Charity has committed to the same level of funding for research into rare and complex diseases. We will make sure the history of Sparks, its name and all the fantastic successes it has achieved will live on within GOSH Charity, and we will continue to fundraise through Sparks for the rest of this financial year.”  290 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 2 November 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

(company running Republic TV and R Bharat channels) has told the Bombay High Court that the investigation carried out by Mumbai Police in the TRP Scam case is guided by unparalleled political vendetta and a malicious witch hunt. In a rejoinder affidavit filed before the High Court on Tuesday, it is stated the Mumbai Police has failed to establish any criminality on the part of the company or its Chief Arnab Goswami, and the charge sheet filed in the case does not disclose any incriminating evidence against them. It is further contended that not a single shred of evidence of wrongdoing on part of the Petitioners is mentioned in the chargesheet and the Mumabi Police has named them only in order to wreak vengeance for their relentless reporting on the Palghar incident and the Sushant Singh Rajput case. “While a series of canards have been uttered and spread regarding the Petitioners and its affiliates, there is still not a single shred of wrongdoing or any evidence, at all, that establishes any financial trail of inducement for buying/ manipulation/ doctoring of TRPs by the Petitioners,” the company submitted. The rejoinder comes in response to the counter-affidavit filed by the Mumbai Police in a writ petition filed by ARG Outlier and news anchor Arnab Goswami challenging the probe in TRP Scam case. Investigating agencies functioning with preconceived notions In its rejoinder affidavit, ARG Outlier has emphasized that the Chargesheet filed by the Mumbai Police names the owners/operators of Republic TV channel as ‘suspects’ (accused persons not chargesheeted). “This nomenclature of ‘suspect’ in a Chargesheet is both unprecedented and illegal and exposes the fact that the investigating agencies are functioning with a preconceived notion and pre-scripted outcomes vis-a-vis the investigation, even as the law-and-order officers have failed to establish a single shred of evidence against the Petitioner in their Chargesheet,” it submitted. Labelling as ‘accused’ at this stage patently illegal & unconstitutional It is submitted that as per well-established principles of law, a chargesheet can only name accused who are sent for trial, unknown accused or absconding accused and a suspect cannot be named in the Chargesheet. Thus, it is contended that “Form 5-C, mentioning the owners/operators/ employees of Republic TV channel and their concerned / connected personnel under the column of particulars of accused person not charge-sheeted/suspects is illegal, arbitrary, unconstitutional and contrary to well established principles of law.” Outright violation of Constitutional & Fundamental Rights It is submitted that the reference made to the Petitioners in suspect category as against particulars of persons not charge-sheeted (suspects) is in violation of their right to reputation and in contravention of Article 21 of the Constitution. “It is well-settled principle of law that naming a person as ‘suspect’ in a chargesheet will inevitably and permanently damage his reputation and tarnish his image in the society,” the rejoinder states. False implication of key officials It is stated that the company’s key officials were falsely implicated during the course of investigation, and company’s VP Ghanshyam Singh and CEO Vikas Khanchandani were baselessly arrested by the Mumbai Police despite the said employees offering full cooperation in the investigation, in a desperate attempt to pressurize them to implicate the Petitioners in the alleged TRP scam. It is alleged that Ghanshyam Singh was even physically and mentally tortured in custody to falsely self-incriminate and falsely implicate his organisation. Mumbai Police has no Jurisdiction to investigate TRP Manipulations The Petitioners have contended that the aspect of placement of channels on dual LCN/ promotional LCN is strictly within the domain of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and it is alleged that Mumbai Police has failed to explain or provide any reason for investigating into issues which are within the exclusive domain of TRAI. No evidence by Hansa Research Group to suggest Petitioners manipulated TRPs The Petitioners said that the complainant, Hansa Research Group, had not named the Republic TV or its employees in its complaints. Nevertheless, Respondent 4, out of sheer malice and without proper investigation, implicated them in a press statement on October 8, 2020. [TRP Scam] Our Complaint Was To Unearth TRP Scam Not Against Any Channel; Hansa Research Tells Bombay HC Further, that Hansa Group itself disclosed that it as being intimidated by Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Vaze and his team of Crime Branch, Mumbai police to make false statements against Republic TV. Background The Mumbai Police registered an FIR on October 6, 2020, under sections 409, 420(cheating) & 120B (conspiracy). The Mumbai Police had claimed that Partho Dasgupta had in alleged connivance with another ex-senior BARC official and Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, manipulated the television rating points (TRP) of Republic TV and its Hindi arm.Only two employees of Republic TV including its CEO Vikas Khanchandani have been named in the two charge sheets filed, so far. Other accused include Romil Ramgarhia and Partho Dasgupta, former CCO and CEO of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), respectively. On January 30, the Mumbai police told the Bombay High Court that the investigation conducted so far in the TRP scam case has prima facie indicated collusion between officials of the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) and others to manipulate TRP.

AstraZeneca to now deliver 40m doses by end of March

first_img Facebook Harps come back to win in Waterford Pharma firm AstraZeneca will now deliver 40 million doses of its vaccine against Covid-19 by the end of March.It’s been called a “step forward” by Brussels, after the bitter row over supply cuts which nearly derailed the Brexit agreement on the North.Brussels was expecting 80 million doses by the end of March at least.But that was before the pharma firm said a production glitch meant it had it to slash its deliveries by around 60 per cent — right down to 31 million doses.Now it seems Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is settling for about half.In a statement last night, she said AstraZeneca would supply nine million extra doses — bringing the deliveries planned up to the end of March up to an even 40 million.Ireland has been getting about 1% of the EU’s total vaccine deliveries — so last night’s announcement means the HSE is in line to receive around 90-thousand more doses.

Daniel Prude’s brother speaks out about ongoing protests

first_imgPrude FamilyBy HALEY YAMADA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Joe Prude said learning that seven police officers involved in his brother’s death were suspended brought immediate “relief for me and the family.”“This is the moment that I’ve been waiting to see and dying to see,” Prude, Rochester, New York, said. “I got it. Now all I’m waiting on is to see [the] people get prosecuted to the fullest of the law.”Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren announced the officers’ paid suspensions on Thursday. Daniel Prude died in police custody in March after being restrained during a mental health emergency.Prude said that the past six months without his brother have been filled with loneliness, emptiness, sadness, hurt and anger.“There’s so much, you know what I mean. I just can’t round it up into one statement,” said Prude. “[He] was connected to my hip.”On March 23, officers responded to a 911 call made by Prude’s family after they said he was going through a mental health issue. The disturbing body camera footage first obtained by the Democrat and Chronicle on Wednesday showed several officers approaching Prude, 41, who was naked and kneeling on the cold street.In the video, Prude appears to comply with the officers’ orders and questions as they place him in handcuffs. He then begins to shout and spit at the officers, who then placed a spit bag over his head, the video shows.“That horrific moment was something that I won’t wish upon nobody to see. Don’t no family member deserve to see their family member there being tortured like that,” Prude told ABC News.Elliot Shield, the attorney representing the Prude family, said the family intends to sue “everyone responsible for Daniel’s death.”“This incident is only coming to light right now because we requested the body camera footage and all of the police reports under New York’s Freedom of Information law,” said Shield.He added that they finally obtained the video once police released it to the public, after months of delay.Protests began outside the Rochester police station on Wednesday and calls for justice have since spread across the country.“Well, what I want people to know about him is that he was a good brother. He was a good son. He was a good uncle. You know… charismatic guy,” said Prude.“These people [were] out here peaceful[ly] protesting on my brother’s behalf and I appreciate their time,” he added. “I appreciate their compassion.”ABC News’ Ivan Pereira, Rachel Katz and Cheryl Gendron contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Avoiding pesticide residue on fruits and veggies

first_img Read Full Story Chensheng (Alex) Lu, associate professor of environmental exposure biology at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), discusses the problem of pesticide residue on fruits and vegetables in a new video on the website of Environmental Working Group (EWG), a leading environmental health research and advocacy organization. The video appears in conjunction with the release of EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce 2013.In the video, Lu cites his 2008 study that monitored pesticide levels in children who normally ate non-organic fruits and vegetables but who were given only organic over a five-day period. “During that five-day period, most of the pesticides [in the children’s urine] disappeared,” Lu said. “We believe the most vulnerable population would be small infants and children, because of their small body weight.” Possible negative health effects from pesticides include impaired mental development or problems with motor skills.Lu recommends that families seek information about which fruits and vegetables have the highest pesticide residue levels—EWG’s Shopper’s Guide lists a “dirty dozen” on its website, for example—so they can decide when to buy organic instead of regular.See EWG video featuring Alex Lulast_img read more

Power outage darkens campus

first_imgA power outage across campus left several dorms and classrooms in the dark Wednesday morning, but campus officials have not yet determined the cause, according to an email from Paul Kempf, director of utilities and maintenance.The email was sent to building managers and rectors Wednesday afternoon.“While performing a minor maintenance activity this morning at our electrical substation an unexpected and currently unexplained anomaly resulted in the loss of our interconnect with the grid,” Kempf said in the email. “The result of this loss required the shedding of electrical loads affecting a portion of campus. Our systems are currently stable, but the cause of the issue still remains unexplained.”University spokesman Dennis Brown said only parts of campus were affected by the power outage, which began just before 9:30 a.m.“About 50 percent of the campus was without power for 10 minutes,” Brown said.Workers were scheduled to investigate the cause of the outage by testing the electrical system after 9 p.m. Wednesday, which would cause “some risk of a repeat occurrence,” Kempf said in the email. He told The Observer on Wednesday night another outage was not expected.“The problem we had this morning isn’t totally explained yet,” Kempf said. “… We’re trying to avoid the disruption to classes, and this evening is when we’re trying to work on it.”Breen-Phillips, Farley, Zahm, Cavanaugh, Alumni, Pangborn, Dillon, Lyons, Carroll, Duncan, Welsh Family, McGlinn and O’Neill were reportedly among the affected dorms, according to hall residents.The outage went unnoticed by some West Quad residents because of backup generators kicking in, according to students.“We had backup generators so it was pretty hard to notice,” junior Thom Behrens, a Duncan Hall resident, said. Junior Kyle McCaffery said generators also supplied electricity to O’Neill Hall during the outage.The Hayes-Healy Center and O’Shaughnessy, Galvin, and Geddes Halls lost power, according to students present in the buildings during the outage. DeBartolo Hall was not affected.Brown said Main Building and the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center also lost power.Rectors cautioned their residents to take precautions throughout Wednesday night’s testing period.“As tests are conducted this evening, the campus may experience rolling power outages after 9 p.m.,” Morrissey rector Ronald Vierling said in an email sent to the hall.In the event of a second outage, “your ID [cards] will not be able to swipe you into any building,” Elaine DeBassige, Farley Hall rector, said in an email to residents.Kempf advised students to limit their use of electronics Wednesday night.“If you’re doing something and you don’t necessarily need to have it on after nine o’clock, you can turn it off,” he said.Brown said the outage was not related to the Aug. 20 partial collapse of a cooling cell in the University’s steam generation system, which provides cool water and air conditioning to campus.Tags: blackout, Dennis Brown, electricity, Paul Kempf, power outage, residence halls, utilitieslast_img read more
