Rod Davies finishes off brilliant 95m Reds try against the Sharks

first_imgMonday May 13, 2013 Rod Davies finishes off brilliant 95m Reds try against the Sharks Rocket Rod Davies scored one of the tries of the season on Saturday as the Reds powered past the struggling Sharks to claim a 32-17 bonus point win at home. They now head to South Africa with goals of reaching the top of the Australian conference. The Reds shot out to a 29-3 halftime lead in Brisbane, blowing the visiting Sharks off the park in what was a frustrating performance for last year’s finalists.Much is said of turning points, and with the Sharks five meters out and hot on attack just fifteen minutes into the game, turning over possession proved vital.The Reds spun it wide and before the Sharks knew what hit them, through some great play by Wallabies Digby Ioane and Will Genia, flyer Rod Davies was in for a try at the other end.“That old notion ‘speed kills’ is very true. That pace is always in the back pocket to use and you get a good footy brain with Rocket (Davies) as well,” Quade Cooper told the Courier Mail.The Faingaa twins, Saia and Anthony, scored a try each, while Davies scored a brace. He has now scored five tries in the last four matches, putting his hand up for Wallaby contention.“Guys can honeypot to the breakdown when breaks are made, but Rocket and Anthony, for his try, kept that width right across the field that is so important. The defence then has to spread, you can get through a bit and scoring chances come,” added optimistic Cooper.The Sharks played better in the second half but weren’t able to pull things back after such a great first period by the home side, who now set sail for South Africa and two tough tour matches.View extended highlights of the matchExtended Highlights of the Reds vs the Sharks from BrisbaneTime: 12:34Credit: ttrugbyvidsADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The elevation in Most on which Hněvín castle stands forms the dominant landmark of this northern Bohemian city. The southern slope is covered with vineyards, and the northern slope with allotment gardens. The latter has been undergoing a gradual transformation away from recreational use by cottage gardeners, towards the year-round inhabitation of individual residential properties. The land plot in question, which is located in the upper half of the northern slope, has several peculiar aspects that had to be dealt with: a conical, irregular shape; undersized access via a local one-way road; a significant downhill gradient – but also, and in spite of all this, a gorgeous view across the ČSA strip mine of the Ore Mountains, a massif crowned with wind turbines. This particular spot, as well as the city at large, are full of contrasts. A landscape violated by the declining coal strip mining industry is juxtaposed against the primeval vista of the massif that is the Ore Mountains.Save this picture!© Martin KocichSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Martin KocichThe specific character of the plot had fundamental impact on where to put the house, and how to resolve its mass composition.  The footprint of the house follows the line of the extant support wall.  The house is inserted into the hillside on a platform such that its mono-pitched roof traces the inward slope of the road above the land plot.  In this manner, the bulk of the house interferes minimally with the road, and does not obstruct the view of the valley below.  The overall composition culminates in the upper floor, reminiscent of a spire, which affords the best views of all rooms inside the house.  The interior is dominated by clean shapes and lines, with a basic color palette of white, grey, and yellow.  The large windows create framed landscape panoramas – ever-changing pictures of the outdoors.  Save this picture!© Martin KocichProject gallerySee allShow lessRIBA Hosts Architecture in Animation SeminarEventHousing Design: Building a Better FutureEvent Share Houseslast_img read more

Impacto a largo plazo de caída histórica del precio del petróleo

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Por primera vez en la historia, el 20 de abril, el precio del petróleo estadounidense cayó a menos $38 por barril. Esta fue una caída de casi $100 por barril desde enero de 2020 cuando el petróleo era de $60 por barril. El 21 de abril, los precios del petróleo cayeron aún más, hundiendo las acciones de Estados Unidos a su peor pérdida desde el 1 de abril. Los rendimientos del Tesoro también cayeron, aumentando aún más las preocupaciones del mercado. La caída negativa de los precios afecta los contratos de futuros sobre el petróleo que se entregarán en mayo. Los “contratos de futuros” se refieren al precio del petróleo entregado en una fecha posterior. El “rendimiento del Tesoro” es el porcentaje de interés del rendimiento de la inversión en la obligación de deuda del gobierno de los Estados Unidos.El exceso, particularmente en el petróleo crudo, es tan grave que los comerciantes se encuentran con reservas de petróleo, no hay lugar para ponerlas y pocos compradores. Además del gasto, después de que el petróleo ha sido bombeado desde el suelo, debe almacenarse antes de las ventas futuras. Las instalaciones de almacenamiento podrían alcanzar la capacidad máxima en tres semanas. La alternativa, cerrar la producción de petróleo, corre el riesgo de dañar los costosos equipos de perforación.¿Qué hay detrás de la drástica caída del precio del petróleo, cuánto durará y qué revela este momento histórico sobre la sobreproducción capitalista?¿Regalando aceite?Con muy poca gente conduciendo o volando, y con las fábricas cerradas, se anticipa que la demanda mundial de petróleo caerá a los niveles vistos por última vez a mediados de la década de 1990. Actualmente, el precio anticipado del petróleo estadounidense que se entregará en junio y julio cayó a $11,57 por barril. Después de que el presidente Trump hizo nuevas amenazas de guerra contra Irán el 22 de abril, el precio de los futuros subió a $13,78.Pero si el precio sigue siendo negativo, los productores de petróleo se enfrentarán al dilema de regalar petróleo o pagarle a alguien para que lo tome.En un mundo socialista, los productores distribuirían petróleo a los países más necesitados. En 2005, por ejemplo, cuando Argentina, endeudada por el FMI, enfrentó una escasez de combustible, Venezuela, que se inclina por los socialistas y productora de petróleo, enfrentando su propia escasez de leche y productos lácteos, organizó un intercambio de productos.La caída en los precios del petróleo debería significar que las personas en los EE.UU. Y otros países capitalistas podrían pagar menos para calentar sus hogares o llenar sus automóviles. Pero no esperes que algo así suceda bajo el capitalismo impulsado por las ganancias.¿Por qué la caída del precio del petróleo?Gran parte de la culpa de esta crisis se ha atribuido a la pandemia de COVID-19. Sin embargo, el impacto de la sobreproducción de gas natural y petróleo a partir de la fracturación hidráulica (fracking) se sintió mucho antes de la pandemia. Incluso antes de que llegara el coronavirus, un exceso de petróleo mundial, debido a la sobreproducción, estaba afectando los mercados de inversión.A principios de marzo, la OPEP y Rusia acordaron reducir el precio del petróleo por barril. Ambas entidades disfrutan de bajos costos de producción que lo hacen posible. La OPEP anunció que también reduciría la producción. Arabia Saudita, miembro de la OPEP, vio una posible ventaja ya que los precios más bajos podrían dañar la producción de petróleo de esquisto bituminoso en los EE.UU., ahora un importante competidor de exportación de petróleo.Rusia, que ya se vio afectada por las sanciones de Estados Unidos, anunció que mantendría la producción en los niveles actuales porque necesita los ingresos. Con la producción afectada por las sanciones de Estados Unidos, Rusia no tenía ningún incentivo para cargar con la carga de la deuda energética de Estados Unidos.Recientemente, más de 12 de los principales países productores de petróleo han acordado limitar la producción a entre 10 y 15 millones de barriles por día, a partir de mayo. Sin embargo, incluso eso no fue suficiente para detener la caída histórica de los precios.“Cambio radical en las perspectivas económicas”Gran parte del petróleo y el gas natural producido en los Estados Unidos depende de las formaciones de esquisto bituminoso. El costo de producción estadounidense por barril es considerablemente más alto que en los principales competidores productores de petróleo y gas. Durante más de una década, el petróleo y el gas de esquisto bituminoso de EE.UU. se basaron en dos factores: inversiones constantes de gigantes de compañías petroleras, bancos y firmas de inversión, y una creciente demanda del mercado mundial de petróleo y gas de EE.UU. Estados Unidos también usa sanciones contra los principales exportadores de petróleo como Venezuela, Irán y Rusia para aumentar su ventaja en el mercado.Desde el inicio, el fracking se ha basado en inversionistas de bolsillo profundo que están dispuestos a apostar en ventas futuras. Pero para cubrir el costo de las inversiones de la producción de petróleo y gas de esquisto se requería un rendimiento de al menos $48 por barril. Por el contrario, los costos actuales de producción de petróleo en Arabia Saudita rondan los $2,80 por barril.En abril, el gigante energético estadounidense Halliburton, un importante productor de petróleo de esquisto bituminoso, informó una pérdida de $1.1 mil millones en el primer trimestre de 2020. Redujo drásticamente los costos de producción, despidió a cientos permanentemente y despidió temporalmente a miles de trabajadores. Se espera una nueva disminución en los ingresos y la rentabilidad para el resto de 2020.Chris Rupkey, economista financiero jefe de MUFG Union Bank, ha declarado: “El mercado del petróleo está operando como si estuviéramos en una nueva Gran Depresión y la demanda no va a volver en meses, sino en años. Ha habido un cambio radical en las perspectivas económicas”. (New York Post, 20 de abril)Sin embargo, algunos países consumidores de petróleo pueden beneficiarse de esta crisis del precio del petróleo. Durante décadas, los importadores de petróleo han pagado a los exportadores de $60 a $70 por barril o más. Actualmente, debido a la falta de demanda, los precios del petróleo han sido de $27 a $30 por barril.Entonces, a pesar de que el uso de petróleo ha disminuido recientemente en China e India debido a las restricciones de cuarentena de COVID-19, la crisis del precio del exceso de petróleo podría significar miles de millones en ahorros anuales para India y China.Con un futuro incierto para la producción mundial a raíz de la pandemia de COVID-19, esta transferencia de riqueza de los países productores de petróleo a los países consumidores de petróleo podría ser un factor económico y político en el futuro.last_img read more

TCU 360 is an official, student-produced product of the School of Journalism at Texas Christian University. TCU 360 Staffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/tcu-360-staff/ + posts printEDITOR’S NOTE: Oregon’s student media organization, the Daily Emerald, has a tradition of featuring a piece from Oregon football’s opponent each week on why the Ducks will lose. We recently participated in this, and in return we are featuring a piece from Kenny Jacoby of the Daily Emerald on why Oregon will beat TCU in the Valero Alamo Bowl. The Alamo Bowl is almost sure to be a high-scoring affair, but ultimately, No. 15 Oregon will surge past No. 11 TCU because the Ducks will be more motivated to bring their A-game.Since Oregon played its first-ever national championship game in 2011, the program has whole-heartedly believed it can achieve anything. The Ducks were 12-0 heading into that game, and if not for a game-winning field goal as time expired, they would have gone down as one of the greatest college football teams of all-time.Since then, Oregon has won two Rose Bowls, a Fiesta Bowl and an Alamo Bowl, been gifted a $95 million football performance center, chanted “We want ‘Bama,” secured its first Heisman Trophy in school history and played in and lost another national championship game last year. Each year, fans and critics alike have reinforced the notion that the Ducks can hang with the best, even though the grand title eluded them.The 2015 season was a different story. It was the first time the current players were told they weren’t good enough. With a 3-3 record at the halfway point, the Ducks were written off and told their era of greatness was over. Student fans walked out on games before they ended, national reporters stopped showing up to practices and few people still believed in Oregon.The Ducks played the rest of their season with chips on their shoulders and a mission to accomplish. They proved the doubters wrong, winning their last six games by an average of 10 points and dragging No. 7 Stanford out of College Football Playoff contention with them.Perhaps no one player will be more motivated in San Antonio than quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. An FCS transfer, Adams almost didn’t graduate in time to enroll at Oregon. His work ethic and priorities were called into question, and the scrutiny only multiplied when he overthrew the would-be, go-ahead touchdown against Michigan State. Fans chanted, “Lock-ie, Lock-ie,” when Adams, whose right index finger was broken, failed to get anything going offensively against Utah and was subsequently benched.Since his return to full-strength and action against Washington, Adams has been one of the best quarterbacks in the game. He posted a 179.6 QB rating — good for second nationally — after being told he can’t succeed in Division I football. He’s still told he can’t play in the NFL; he’s never been more motivated to deliver a signature performance in front of the pro scouts than in his final college game.Running back Royce Freeman shares that motivation. He was completely overlooked as a Heisman candidate despite finishing fourth in the nation in rushing yards with a 6.6-yard average. He’ll set out to make a statement to those who didn’t give him a chance as to why they’d best not toss him aside next season.The coaching staff has every reason to bring its A-game, as well. The game represents a huge opportunity for Helfrich to impress a hotbed of potential Texan recruits by embarrassing a perennial powerhouse on its home soil. It’s also essentially a tryout for wide receivers coach Matt Lubick to take over Scott Frost’s old job as offensive coordinator. Expect a dominant showing on offense.Oh, and let’s not forget the matter of an eighth consecutive 10-win season at stake.Follow Kenny Jacoby on Twitter @KennyJacoby TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks TCU 360 Staff TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hellolast_img read more

RSF new scholarship program trains journalists in digital security

first_imgUlrike Gruska / Christoph Dreyer / Anne Renzenbrink / Juliane Matthey German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom Follow the news on Germany “Across the globe, journalists are increasingly being monitored by governments and intelligence agencies. This jeopardizes their own security and that of their sources,” said RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “We want to support these brave colleagues by providing them with security training. From now on, journalists who fear to be victims of digital surveillance will be able to turn to the RSF Emergency Help Desk in Germany. That’s a new example of the RSF innovation spirit in order to address the key challenges of our times.” May 31, 2021 Find out more With this scholarship program Reporters Without Borders is expanding its current range of Berlin-based programs aimed at protecting journalists. Together with the taz panter foundation, the organization is also organizing a rest and refuge scholarship (http://ogy.de/jd68) which offers journalists from war and crisis regions the opportunity to spend a rest period of three months in Berlin. So far scholarship holders from Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Burundi, Zimbabwe, Turkey, Uganda and Ukraine have been invited. From 2013 to 2016 Reporters Without Borders, in cooperation with the Tactical Technology Collective and with funding from the German Federal Foreign Office, invited journalists from several countries including Azerbaijan, Bahrain and Myanmar to Berlin and trained them in digital security (http://ogy.de/16u9). – German section March 30, 2021 Find out more In parallel with the scholarship program, Reporters Without Borders is setting up a digital help desk in Berlin which journalists from all over the world can contact with enquiries about digital security. At the end of their scholarship, participants in the program will spend time working at the help desk and applying their newly acquired knowledge. The scholarship program is initially planned for a period of one and a half years. During this time, a total of 16 journalists from all over the world and three journalists working for Berlin-based exile media will be trained in a series of four separate rounds. The program covers the travel and visa costs of scholarship holders, their rent in Berlin and their health insurance costs. In addition, participants will receive a monthly allowance of approximately 1,000 euros. Exiled journalists who work for Berlin-based exile media will also be included in the scholarship program and trained in digital security. Berlin has become an important location for exile media outlets from all over the world, including the Azerbaijani television channel Meydan TV, the German-Turkish website taz.gazete and the online magazine Syria Untold. These media are published almost exclusively online while some of their employees continue to work anonymously from their home countries. This renders them particularly vulnerable to digital threats. A large number of whistleblowers and hackers have sought refuge in Berlin over the past few years, leading to the emergence in the German capital of a web activist scene that is unique in Europe. Help by sharing this information Reporters without borders July 24, 2018 RSF new scholarship program trains journalists in digital security “In many countries, journalists and bloggers are intimidated, threatened and persecuted because of their work,” said Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, Ramona Pop. “Berlin has established itself in recent years as Europe’s ‘web activism capital’, where a significant digital activist scene has developed. Now we are inviting digital media journalists who are under threat in their home countries to Berlin and supporting them with a scholarship program. Berlin as a city of freedom exerts a strong attraction, and we assume our responsibility to defend freedom of expression and the press.” The scholarship program will begin with a rest period during which journalists from crisis regions in particular can relax and acclimatize to Berlin. After that the participants will receive several weeks of intensive training in digital security during which they will learn, for example, how to communicate safely and protect themselves against hacker attacks. One of the objectives of the scholarship program is for the journalists to pass on the knowledge they acquire to colleagues in their home regions and become local contact persons for issues related to digital threats. The program therefore also includes didactic training.

In Bahrain, the authorities use the Internet for the systematic surveillance of dissidents. The phone connection of Bahraini journalist Nazeeha Saeed, for example, was deliberately and repeatedly infected with malware (http://ogy.de/lds5). In Morocco, spyware was installed on the computers at the editorial offices of the anti-government website Mamfakinch. Because its informants were also affected by the measure, other sources lost confidence in the website. (http://ogy.de/sza4). In China, the government has created a sophisticated system of surveillance and online censorship. In Turkey, around a year ago opposition members and activists were targeted by a professional surveillance campaign.

Earlier this year, the Tripura High Court held that government servants are entitled to hold and express their political beliefs, subject to the restrictions laid under Rule 5 of the Tripura Civil Services (Conduct) Rules. “As a Government servant the petitioner is not devoid of her right of free speech, a fundamental right which can be curtailed only by a valid law. She was entitled to hold her own beliefs and express them in the manner she desired of course subject to not crossing the borders laid down in sub-rule (4) of Rule 5 of the Conduct Rules,” Chief Justice Akil Kureshi had held while setting aside suspension of an employee for an Facebook post she had made. In 2018, the Kerala High Court had ordered the reinstatement of a Professor who was placed under suspension for a making a post in Facebook criticising the University’s action against a student.””One cannot be prevented from expressing his views merely because he is an employee. In a democratic society, every institution is governed by democratic norms. Healthy criticism is a better way to govern a public institution”, Justice Muhamed Mustaque, who dealt with the matter, had said in the order. Justice PV Asha of Kerala High Court had directed the Travancore Devaswom Board to reinstate a temple employee, who was kept under suspension for his Facebook posts allegedly insulting Chief Minister and the Devaswom Minister.
