Austin Healey shares his thoughts as we get closer to kickoff

first_imgFriday Nov 5, 2010 Austin Healey shares his thoughts as we get closer to kickoff One of the true characters of the game, former England back Austin Healey was kind enough to share a few thoughts with Rugbydump ahead of a big month for Test rugby up north. This is what he had to say. RD: Your thoughts on the game England vs New Zealand game this weekend? AH:England rugby matches obviously dont get any bigger or better than this. New Zealand in front of a sold out Twickenham? I think the fans are in for a real treat.This could be the start of something special for England. If we win, people will be talking up our chances of winning the World Cup next year. But if we get hammered, many will say were back to square one. Regardless, if we see England players displaying the three Es Excitement, Emotion and Endeavour I think we will have a good Saturday whichever way the result goes. Will law interpretations affect the Investec Internationals this autumn?I think its time that people stopped using the law interpretations from the Southern and Northern Hemisphere as an excuse. We should just get on with it and let the game flow.Nowadays, the players are good at interpreting which way the referee is going to play the game from his decisions in the first 10 minutes, so I dont really see it being an issue in these four matches. Your ideal Englands halfback combination come World Cup kick off time?The World Cup is still a long time away and there are lots of players pushing to be in the team. All of these players will be seeking to put down a marker in the Investec Internationals, so it will be interesting to see how the contenders perform.I think the RBS 6 Nations next year will be key to deciding who is on the plane to New Zealand, however, they will be coming up against some big, physical sides in these next few weeks so Martin Johnson and his team will be keen to see the players can take the physical battle now. In light of some of the citings and suspensions weve seen this year, is rugby becoming over policed, ie: soft?There is absolutely no way that rugby is becoming ‘soft’. You only have to look at the number of recent retirements due to injury to see that it is now a more physical game than ever.In terms of the game becoming over-policed – no, I dont think it is being, but I would like to see more common sense being used when dishing out punishments. For example, if a player throws a punch at someone and misses, dont ban them for six weeks. But if a player throws a punch and it cuts an opponent so he requires stitches, I think a ban is justified. The punishment needs to fit the crime. Do you expect another surprise package at the 2011 World Cup, as we saw with Argentina in 2007?No, I dont expect there to be any other surprise packages at this years World Cup. Argentina are due to join the Tri-Nations in 2012, so I dont think you can call a potential Tri-Nations team a surprise package anymore.However, I would say keep an eye out for the emergence of Russia as a rugby nation at the World Cup and over the next few years! What is O2 Inside Line all about?O2 Inside Line is all about getting the sport of rugby exposed to the general public and breaking down the barriers for fans to get an insight into the England team.Rugby has traditionally been a very protected sport, so were seeking to give both die hard and casual rugby fans access to the England team in a more irreverent way. Were going to show them the funny side of things that people generally dont get to see!

Bakkies Botha’s amusing conversion kick attempt for the Barbarians

first_imgMonday Nov 23, 2015 Bakkies Botha’s amusing conversion kick attempt for the Barbarians Argentina beat the Barbarians 49-31 in an entertaining game on Saturday, as Los Pumas scored seven tries, with a number of RWC stars on show on both teams. One of the funniest moments from the match came at the end though, as an unlikely kicker stepped up.South African legend Victor Matfield, who skippered the Michael Cheika coached BaaBaas on the day, scored the final try of the match. His long time Bulls and Springboks locking partner Bakkies Botha had taken to the field a little earlier, playing in his final ever match of competitive rugby.So when it came time for someone to convert the try, the ball was tossed in 36-year-old Botha’s direction, and he made an absolute meal of it.Menacing on the field but a quiet, family man off it, Botha took the opportunity to channel his inner Dan Biggar, doing a quick impression of the now infamous pre-kick routine that we saw on numerous occasions at the World Cup.He then shifted into the Jonny Wilkinson pose, before swinging his hefty boot at the ball.It was a great end to a thrilling match, and left the players and crowd in good spirits, as well as gave Botha a nice end to a career that has included numerous accolades.Old friend Matfield actually attempted a conversion in his ‘final match’ (before comeback) a few years ago for the Barbarians too, and that was also a bit of a disaster.– View Highlights of Barbarians vs Argentina –Matfield’s attempt:ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Protest shows solidarity with prison hunger strike

first_imgLos AngelesIn solidarity with the prison hunger strikers now in their fourth week of refusing food, hundreds gathered at the Downtown Federal Building in Los Angeles on July 31 to demand an end to the state-sponsored torture going on in California’s prison system’s Security Housing Units (SHUs) and that prison and state officials meet all of the strikers’ demands regarding the right to basic mental and physical health care and food.According to Amnesty International, conditions in the SHUs blatantly violate the U.N. Convention against Torture and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which was ratified by the U.S. Many of the protesters were also family members of the courageous striking inmates.Pam Africa speaks at a rally in front of the Philadelphia Federal Building on July 31, in solidarity with the California prisoners’ hunger strike.Among the activists attending the rally was actor Danny Glover, whom the Los Angeles Times quoted: “Malcolm X said, ‘We talk about jail, we all in jail.’ We in jail because the power defines us! We have to create a system that works for us.” (July 31)On July 22, prisoner Bill Sell died while participating in the hunger strike.WW photos: John Parker in Los Angeles and Joseph Piette in PhiladelphiaFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Leonard Peltier: ‘Apartheid exists in America’

first_imgTaken from a Dec. 5 statement which can be read in its entirety at Native News Online at tinyurl.com/q7rcsnp. Political prisoner Leonard Peltier has been incarcerated for 37 years.It saddens me to hear that a great man like Nelson Mandela has departed from this lifetime. He was a man who was truly inspirational and showed us the possibilities of how a continued struggle by Indigenous people could manifest itself in levels of freedom that have been marred by centuries of oppression.Our Native people suffered the same types of oppression many times. It is not as overt and as easily distinguished as in some places; however, if you are dead because a policeman shot you, or dead because you could not stand the racial and cultural genocide, so you committed suicide — you are just as dead either away.Nelson Mandela is known for leading the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. America talked about ending apartheid and put sanctions on South Africa. Not being all that adept at the English language, it is my understanding that “apartheid” means to keep someone apart from something. My people have been kept apart purposely from the sacred Black Hills of South Dakota. There were, and still are, measures that keep us apart from our true history, perpetrated by an education system that limits the truth of our being.Right now in Canada, Native people are struggling to protect their aboriginal lands from fracking, which destroys the water tables and disturbs the natural balance of the Earth. With an apartheid mentality, they seek to build pipelines across Native lands that have the potential of great ecological destruction.Right now, there is an apartheid that seeks to separate us from the protection of the Constitution of the United States, which says treaty law is the supreme law of the land; which also says you have a right to an unbiased fair trial; which also says you have a right to a jury of your peers. Right now our young Native people are tried as adults THREE times more than other groups and kept “apartheid” from their families and kept “apartheid” from competent legal representation.We must all consider Nelson Mandela an inspiration, but I am also inspired by the least of our people who stand up for what is right, like the young man or young woman who peacefully mans a roadblock against developers or fracking companies or some factory that hurts our air.I want to remember Wanbli Tate who tirelessly championed the rights of Indigenous people to bring attention to the wrongdoers represented in government and corporations.I remember my brother Russell Means who was also tireless in his efforts in trying to bring about an end to this American version of apartheid that faces Native people.In the spirit of all those who have gone before us in this struggle, stay strong and NEVER, NEVER give up.In the spirit of Crazy Horse,Leonard PeltierMitakuye OyasinFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two journalists imprisoned for libel

first_img Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Follow the news on Egypt EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Organisation EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information to go further January 22, 2021 Find out more News February 1, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders today protested against the imprisonment yesterday of newspaper editor Mustapha Bakri and his brother and fellow journalist Mahmoud Bakri after an appeal court upheld their conviction and one-year prison sentences for libel.”We call for the immediate release of these journalists, who could be fined if they have broken the law but should under no circumstances be sentenced to prison,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “At a time when Egypt wants to establish a human rights council and there is talk of doing away with the state security courts, it does the country’s image a great deal of harm to imprison journalists for press crimes,” Ménard said.Ménard pointed out that the UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, Abid Hussain, called on all governments on 18 January 2000 “to ensure that press crimes are no longer subject to prison sentences except for crimes such as racist or discriminatory comments or appeals for violence.” Hussain said the imposition of a prison sentence for the peaceful expression of opinion “constitutes a serious violation of human rights.” Mustapha Bakri is the editor of the weekly Al Ousbou and his brother is a journalist with the same newspaper. An appeal court on 1 June upheld the one-year prison sentences passed on them three years ago. They are being held in Tora prison, south of Cairo.They were convicted of libelling Mohammed Abdel Al, head of the opposition Social Justice Party and editor of the newspaper Al-Watan Al-Arabi, on the grounds that they accused him of corruption without offering any evidence. Abdel Al was himself sentenced to 10 years in prison by the high court of state security on 25 May for taking bribes from businessmen in return for a promise never to criticise them in his newspaper.

Seven-year veteran Paulino do Rego Barros, Jr., who recently served as President of the company’s Asia-Pacific business, has been appointed as interim CEO as the Board searches for a permanent individual both within and outside of the company.“We are working intensely to support consumers and make the necessary changes to minimize the risk that something like this happens again,” Feidler said. “Speaking for everyone on the Board, I sincerely apologize.”Feidler continued that Equifax is a substantially stronger company than it was 12 years ago when Smith began with the company, but “the Board and [Smith] agree that a change of leadership is in order.”However, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) believes the change in leadership comes in poor timing. With only days left until Smith is scheduled to testify at congressional hearings about the breach, Waters warns that his retirement does not relieve the company of its duty to provide answers to, and adequate address for, the many Americans who were affected.“The public deserves answers about what occurred at Equifax, and its entire board of directors and senior management team should be accountable for the enormous harm caused to consumers across the country,” Waters said. “There will be consequences.

Streamlining the Uniform Mortgage-Backed Security

A material divergence in the performance of Fannie and Freddie’s pools will lead investors to trade more and more in the specified and stipulated pool markets, reducing liquidity in the TBA market and thereby undermining pricing marketwide.”The FHFA, Urban notes, should be focusing on the rise of specified pools, as this could drive a loss of TBA liquidity. However, it needs to “dig deeper” to what is causing the rise of specified pools.For example, if a lender is faster than others, it may be required to explain why to Fannie and Freddie, and be able to show that they are simply providing borrowers with a beneficial refinance option more quickly than the rest of the market.Urban’s proposed practices would require the FHFA to utilize a bottom-up market-oriented approach, rather than a top-down regulatory approach.Find Urban’s complete report here.
