Scotland undone by New Zealand at Murrayfield

first_imgTuesday Nov 11, 2008 Scotland undone by New Zealand at Murrayfield New Zealand got the first leg of their Grand Slam tour under way with a comfortable 32-6 victory over Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday. With plenty of talk pre-match about the second string All Black outfit that coach Graeme Henry selected, the Scots still werent quite good enough to pose a threat to the Tri Nations champions.The Scots got off to a good start in the match, looking dangerous through Mike Blair and Chris Paterson, but they couldnt maintain it and they will need to lift their game once again as they face the Springboks on Saturday.The finishing of the visitors, as well as their superior pace and handling, outdid the at times shaky Scottish defence. The physicality of the match wasnt in question though, as this was no easy task for the men in black. Despite that, their four tries were ultimately enough to see them home for a relatively straight forward win.Tries by Anthony Tuitavake, Richard Kahui, Piri Weepu and Anthony Boric meant that they can now put a little tick next to the checkbox for game one of this arduous tour.Coach Graeme Henry was quick to praise his experimental side.“It was a good start to the tour of the UK,” said Henry.“There was some quick defence out there when we were under the cosh.“The Scots played with adventure and probably deserved a couple of tries. I’m told there were nine line breaks by Scotland. That shows we’re a bit rusty. But this was a first time together for this team”.Scottish coach Frank Hadden was more frustrated than disappointed with the result.“After having had so much possession and territory it was hard to accept this but when it came it to finishing New Zealand showed real class,” he told reporters.“However, I thought that we gave their defence a tough examination”.Regarding New Zealands chances of completing a Grand Slam, “They rode their luck today but they clearly have an abundance of talent. There is no denying the differences in resources between them and us”.New Zealand play Ireland at Croke Park on Saturday, with Scotland hosting South Africa at Murrayfield.

Prefecture denies journalist access to minister

first_img FranceEurope – Central Asia News September 27, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prefecture denies journalist access to minister News RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story to go further Organisation Receive email alerts News Help by sharing this information Newscenter_img Follow the news on France May 10, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU RSF has expressed concern over the Cayenne prefecture’s refusalto grant journalist Frédéric Farine permission to cover French OverseasDepartments Minister Brigitte Girardin’s visit to French Guiana. Cayenne isthe capital of French Guiana.On 16 September 2004, Farine, a correspondent for Radio FranceInternational’s (RFI) online news service, was refused permission toaccompany the Overseas Departments Minister on an 18 September mission -dubbed “Operation Anaconda” – to wipe-out illegal gold-washing sites in thesouth. When the journalist requested permission to board the army helicopterthat had been assigned for the press, he was reportedly told by theprefecture’s administrative director, Daniel Josserand-Jaillet, “You areconstantly writing negative things about the prefectural services. I am notgoing to put you on the press list for Ms. Girardin’s visit.”When contacted by “Le Monde” correspondent Laurent Marot on the afternoon of16 September, Josserand-Jaillet confirmed that Farine had been excluded forhis “presumptuous behaviour” and for his “negative articles” about variousprefectural departments. Josserand-Jaillet reportedly told Marot that “alldepartments have been instructed not to communicate with (Farine).” Anotherjournalist, who was with Marot at the time of the conversation, confirmedthe director’s statement.When reached by RSF on September 22, however, Josserand-Jaillet deniedhaving made the comments, saying that Farine was not allowed on thehelicopter because there were no seats available when he called two daysearlier. Other journalists who were on the helicopter have confirmed that aseat was, in fact, available on the aircraft, and that Farine, who waspresent during take-off, was nevertheless not allowed to board.In the July 2004 edition of “Menmomag” magazine, Farine published aninvestigative report on the Cayenne prefecture’s alleged fraudulent grantingof visas. The journalist is also known for his reporting on gold-washingindustry violence. In July 2001, he co-authored a report with “Le Monde'”sMarot denouncing the reign of terror of “quasi-militias” at the service ofgold-washing lords and the authorities’ complacent attitude toward them.On 14 May 2003, Farine was violently attacked by gold-washing lord Jean Benawhile he was covering the murder trial of a former Bena employee for the RFOGuyane radio station. On 16 December, a Cayenne court found Bena guilty ofassault in the incident and sentenced him to a four-month suspended prisonsentence and a fine of 3,000 euros (approx. US$ 3,680). The court justifiedthe harsh sentence by the serious nature of the incident, its context andthe high profile of the accused. Bena has appealed the verdict.

534 New Cases of COVID-19 Confirmed in Los Angeles County

first_img Community News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy LA County continues to reach grim new numbers as more people die from the coronavirus.On Thursday the county once again recorded more deaths ever in a single day due to complications from virus when health officials confirmed 13 new deaths and 534 new cases of the deadly virus.That number is up one from Wednesday’s record of 12 deaths. On Tuesday, 10 deaths were reported which was also a record at the time. As of Thursday afternoon, Pasadena has 37 cases of the virus. City officials reported no new deaths as of Thursday afternoon.As for the county numbers, 12-of-the-13 deaths occurred in people over the age of 65; one person was between 41– 65 years old. All head underlying health conditions except for one individual over the age of 65. Additional information regarding some of the new cases is pending further investigation.Over the last 48 hours, there have been 1047 new cases.“The psychological impact of rising case counts and deaths is real, both individually and collectively, and I urge everyone to take care of their emotional health and to check in frequently with those in your extended communities,” LA County Health Director Barbara Ferrer. “This will be a long haul, and we have many weeks of work ahead before we begin to see the benefits of our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. But if we act as one community against this virus, by staying home as much as possible, self-isolating when we are sick and self-quarantining if we’ve been exposed, we will get through this, together.”To date, Public Health has identified 4045 cases across all areas of LA County, including 78 deaths. Upon further investigation, seven cases reported earlier were not LA County residents. As of today, 879 people who tested positive for COVID-19 — 22 percent of positive cases) have been hospitalized at some point during their illness.Ferrer said 241 were hospitalized due to coronavirus as of midday Thursday across the county, and two-thirds of them had no underlying health conditions. She said 28 percent of those people were in intensive care units, including five people under age 35. Roughly 900 of the people who have tested positive for the illness overall have been hospitalized at some point.As of Wednesday, more than 23,300 people in the county have been tested for the virus. Ferrer said about 13 percent of those people turned out to be positive, but she said that percentage is likely inflated because some local labs have not provided complete updates on tests that came back negative.The latest numbers come a day after Ferrer and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti called on residents there to wear scarves or homemade masks to help stop the spread of the virus.“It’s really important that folks understand that while the guidance suggests that it would be beneficial to mask up when you’re out and about, we’re much clearer on the benefits that accrue if you do everything else we’ve asked you to do,” she said. “Most important is social distancing.You’re not going to spread germs if you’re not close to people. That six-foot barrier is essential for us to maintain, even if you’re masked.“I don’t want people to get a sense of security, `Oh, I’ve covered my nose and mouth and now I can be out and about.’ That is not what we’re saying. You must keep that social distancing. The mask will not protect you 100 percent, particularly from infecting others, which is really all that they are appropriate for. You need to wash your hands. Washing your hands is still the most appropriate action you can take to prevent germs from getting inside you. So wash your hands. Don’t touch your face unless your hands are clean.”She also again stressed that residents should not be purchasing hospital-grade surgical masks, which are in short supply and needed by health- care workers. She said people can use scarves or other fabric, suggesting that people go online for instructions on how to fashion a homemade mask.“They’re very simple to make. There’s nothing fancy about them,” she said. Your email address will not be published.

US Naval Academy ‘plebes’ climb greased monument to end freshmen year

first_imgMatt Seyler/ABC News(ANNAPOLIS, Md.) — The U.S. Naval Academy freshmen scaled the Herndon Monument in the annual climb Monday.The event was part of a tradition in Annapolis, Maryland, where the freshmen or “plebes” build a human pyramid and climb a 21-foot monument to replace the “dixie cup” hat with an upperclassman’s hat. Finishing in one hour and five minutes, they beat last year’s time of two hours and 21 minutes.Upperclassmen slathered the monument in nearly 50 pounds of vegetable shortening and freshmen were required to remove their shoes before they started.“We call it the culminating event for the end of their freshmen year,” said Jenny Erickson, a U.S. Naval Academy spokesperson.The first recorded climb was in 1950, without grease. The greasy climb is a rite of passage for “plebes,” or freshmen, to mark officially becoming Midshipmen 4th Class. Christian Schwein, 19, from the 27th Company, had the honor of placing the hat atop the monument this year.According to tradition, the midshipman who gets the hat on top will become the first admiral in the class.The Herndon Monument is named for Navy Cmdr. William Lewis Herndon, who “possessed the qualities of discipline, teamwork and courage.”Much like the monument, the climb represents the teamwork, and perseverance freshmen have to endure in the first year at the academy. In addition to their academic responsibilities, they undergo military-style training including six weeks of “Plebe Summer” which is similar to basic training in the military.

My resources

first_imgMy resourcesOn 9 Sep 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Andrew Thompson, International HR director, OxfamPublications When it comes to magazines, I’m a binge-reader. I starve myself ofintelligent reading for up to three weeks, until the stack of magazines in myreading tray has reached crisis proportions, and then I take the lot on thetrain and read them all in one go – skimming through the articles until I findones I want to ‘feed’ on. We also subscribe to an excellent service that Cranfield University offersfor binge-readers – every few months, it circulates the contents pages of awide range of management magazines published recently and you select thearticles you want copies of. With newspapers and Personnel Today, I am much more of a grazer. I read themas they come in or as people leave them on the train – The Metro, The Mirror,whatever happens to be lying around. Of course, I also need to keep up with world events but I vary my intakefrom day-to-day: The Guardian, The Economist, The Times, Radio 4 Todayprogramme, BBC News, BBC World Service, and any newspaper written in Englishoutside the UK, depending on what I’m doing and where in the world I’m doingit. Books It’s been a while since I read anything academic or conceptual longer thanfive pages. Most of the gurus manage to turn a concept that could be summed up in a fewpages into 300 pages by the simple but boring device of giving us lots ofsimilar examples. However, I have just ordered David Urich’s Human ResourceChampions and HR Scorecard, as five pages is not enough sometimes. Normally, I like to lose myself in a good fantasy story such as The Wheel OfTime series by Robert Jordan. I have always tried to stimulate my imaginationby whatever means, as it helps me to think out of the box and tell storiesabout my vision to my team and colleagues. Television Television is something I watch after the kids are in bed and while I’mwaiting for my wife to come off the internet. I rarely watch a whole programme,as I’d rather be sitting with my wife while she is on the computer. Withtravelling, friends, three children and DIY, we don’t get many otheropportunities to be alone. Radio The radio is always on in our house. We really enjoy music in the backgroundand our youngest child now seems to know the words to most songs. Music is another source of inspiration and energy, but it seems thateveryone tells me to turn the music down, even my children. Surely it should bethe other way around? Advertisements Hate them, unless they’ve got decent music or make me laugh. The Linx adwith the Room 5 track is my ideal. Internet Having recently upgraded my PC and signed up to broadband, I am now hooked.But not to the worldwide web. There’s this great online jukebox service thathas the full track history of more than 10,000 artists. You can dial-up anartist and listen to all the tracks at random without paying for each download.Great for dinner parties or just to have constantly playing in the background.I also download music from subscription sites so I can load it onto my laptopfor when I’m travelling. Afghanistan can be a home from home as long as I havemy music with me. Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
