Manu Tuilagi to start for England Saxons

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Manu Tuilagi will make his Saxons debut against Italy ANineteen-year-old Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi will start for England Saxons when they take on Italy A this Saturday at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium. He is joined by team-mate Billy Twelvetrees, who partners him in the centre, while British and Irish Lions wing Ugo Monye and hooker Lee Mears will also make their return to international rugby.Harlequins flanker Chris Robshaw captains the side in which there are five debutants in total – Tuilagi and Twelvetrees, Harlequins prop Joe Marler, Sale flanker James Gaskell and Northampton lock Christian Day.Head coach Stuart Lancaster is delighted with his current crop, but says there’s every possibility he could lose any one of them to Martin Johnson’s World Cup squad later this year.“It’s an exciting group and we’ve got a bit of everything in the squad,” said Lancaster. “There are young players coming through, those getting their opportunities after showing great form in the Aviva Premiership and some who are older and more experienced who are keen to get back in the senior squad all of whom have added great value to the group.“These players have got everything to play for in a World Cup year and they know it. It’s a big chance for all of them and it’s important for them to play for each other. If they do that, the collective performance will enable them to benefit from it as individuals.”The Saxons will go on to play Ireland Wolfhounds the following Friday night in Belfast, and Lancaster says it’s been a whirlwind so far.“It’s been a short week to prepare to play Italy A but everyone’s bought into what we want to do and Worcester’s going to be a great place to play – a nice wide pitch and a passionate crowd – so it should be a great occasion,” continued Lancaster.Full team to face Italy A15 Mike Brown (Harlequins)14 James Simpson-Daniel (Gloucester Rugby)13 Manu Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers)12 Billy Twelvetrees (Leicester Tigers)11 Ugo Monye (Harlequins)10 Stephen Myler (Northampton Saints)9 Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens)1 Joe Marler (Harlequins) 22 Olly Morgan (Gloucester Rugby)Click here to find out why RW Features Editor Sarah Mockford thinks Manu Tuilagi is the answer to England’s midfield problemscenter_img 2 Lee Mears (Bath Rugby)3 Alex Corbisiero (London Irish)4 Graham Kitchener (Worcester Warriors)5 Christian Day (Northampton Saints)6 James Gaskell (Sale Sharks)7 Chris Robshaw (Harlequins, captain)8 Luke Narraway (Gloucester Rugby)Replacements16 James Buckland (London Irish)17 Duncan Bell (Bath Rugby)18 George Robson (Harlequins)19 Andrew Saull (Saracens)20 Paul Hodgson (London Irish)21 Brad Barritt (Saracens)last_img read more

People in Mekong Delta, with an average income under 100 USD per month mainly live in cheap temporary houses. Ironically, poor structures result in high maintenance fee. Therefore, low-cost but permanent house is an urgent social issue here. With the given situation, the aim of “s house” project is to provide stable but lightweight, permanent but affordable homes within a budget of 4,000 USD per unit (30 sqm).Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe first phase of the project started in 2012 with a steel frame prototype. Since 2013, in pursuit of higher stability and thermal comfort in a tropical climate, a new prototype with precast concrete frame was designed and two houses is constructed in Long An Province.Save this picture!AxonometricThe concept of the second prototype is to combine modular components and DIY strategy. Prefabrication helps control quality and cost, and future mass production. Precast concrete frame and foundation guarantee predetermined stability and accuracy. The lightweight structure allows smaller foundation and transportability by small boats, since waterways are still the dominant transportation in Mekong Delta. Light frames with simple bolted connection also encourage dwellers to participate in construction. Locally sourced, finishing materials can all be assembled and replaced easily by dwellers and neighbors for the future change or extension.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiTo cope with harsh weather of the region, the project utilizes passive design strategies. Nipa palm and corrugated cement is combined to form a “double roof”, it helps protect dwellers from excessive rain while providing sufficient thermal comfort. Polycarbonate panels allow natural light to enter and reduce the need for artificial lighting, while the gap between the roof and walls is to promote natural ventilation. Since nipa palms cost next to nothing in Mekong Delta, it is not only a familiar material to the locales but also in harmony with the surrounding scenery.Save this picture!SectionAfter construction of the second, the third prototype with higher durability, lighter structure and more reasonable components is on progress.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessWikiHouse Unveils World’s First Two-Storey Open-Source House at London Design FestivalArchitecture NewsPoszetka Workshop & Showroom / Grzegorz LayerSelected Projects Share “COPY” Houses Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/549049/s-house-vo-trong-nghia-architects Clipboard S House / VTN Architects CopyHouses, Social Housing•tp.

Developing working-class resistance to fascism

first_imgThese excerpts were taken from the Jan. 14 webinar, “Workers Can Defeat Fascism & Racism,” sponsored by Workers World Party. To view the entire panel discussion, go to tinyurl.com/y25tapr2.Like most people, I had been very much aware that this fascist rally was going to take place in Washington[, D.C.,] on Wednesday, the same day that the Congress was going to declare Biden the winner of the presidential election. Just by happenstance I turned on the TV at the moment when the storming of the Capitol steps happened. Along with many other activists, I have been at many demonstrations in Washington or at our own capitals or whatever.Dianne MathiowetzAnd even when we were only going to be a few hundred, if that, the place would be lined with cops. There would be helicopters overhead — there would be all this stuff. So I have to admit, when I saw how easy it was for this group to break windows, break into the Capitol and make it all the way to the Senate and House floors, I was taken aback. I was not surprised by the organization that was evident, because we’ve encountered that here in Georgia, in the past and not too long ago.I do think that part of the intensity of some of these white supremacists was the fact that Georgia, which had been a very reliable, right-wing red state, had just elected not only the first Black senator but the first Jewish senator. And so that really got them, based on their anti-Semitism and racism. The elections of those two men, who had espoused kind of progressive views and had both participated in Black Lives Matter demonstrations, was not so much the result of the Democratic Party machinery here in Georgia. It was what I would describe as all of the mass organizations and communities that really just wanted to get rid of Trump and all his minions.They both worked really hard in getting new registrations among youth, particularly of color, and worked hard with the women’s community and the migrant community. It was really an amazing effort at the grass roots. So I have no doubt that, besides the fact that Trump had lost, that these two other senators from Georgia are part of what made the fascists so angry.We’ve seen this kind of violence here in the South. I’ve lived in the South for over 50 years. A lot of this is not surprising to see: armed, white, racist men rampaging.Developing working-class resistanceWe’re talking about how we need to develop the working class, to have the working class recognize its class obligation and its possibilities. One of the things I was thinking about–because I was in Buffalo for a number of years–was how the party mobilized there against the fascist, women-hating Operation Rescue. We have also organized demonstrations all across the country against racist elements, Ku Klux Klan, Nazis and other white supremacists.We call things the Civil Rights Movement, the women’s movement or the immigrant rights movement. What we need to say is that every single one of those were workers’ movements against an issue. They were not necessarily recognizing their class identity, but that’s who it’s always been. Workers have always taken on the obligation, the charge, to fight against all forms of oppression and exploitation.The challenge is how do we meld all those elements of the working class and have them realize that they’re a class that’s fighting together? In Atlanta, the [party] branch has been here since the early 1970s. And we’ve had the opportunity to actually chase, I’m talking physically chase, the Ku Klux Klan out of the city of Atlanta. I think it was 1989, when the thousands of largely youth literally chased them down the street even though there were over 1,000 cops protecting.And it hasn’t just been here. Oftentimes our comrades have been asked to go to small towns in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee or Mississippi to help the residents of a town that was being confronted by violent white supremacists. We have, in the party, brought thousands of people out in Boston against people who were opposing the right of Black children to go to school.So we have seen exactly what we need to see on a national scale: That workers can come to a conclusion about how to organize and fight back against even the most violent armed groups — certainly during the history of what’s called the Civil Rights Movement or the Black Liberation struggle in the South. We can even talk about the Lumbee people in North Carolina who fought the Klan with guns, and that’s not the only instance of that. I say this because it can be daunting.This for many people is a new experience, seeing this kind of organized, right-wing assault on anything. But it’s clearly something that our class is capable of combating, and that we as members of a communist party, as members of other organizations, have the capacity to help push forward to victory.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Many of these students missed milestone events in high school, including attending a senior prom and walking across the stage at commencement ceremonies. Now at TCU, they have spent the past few months adjusting to college while dealing with COVID-19 regulations. Several of them have struggled with certain parts of their college experiences, but they have been able to adapt. Alexis Gugasian, a first-year communication major, said she did not think COVID-19 would last long enough to interrupt her first year of college. “There is absolutely no way a first-year college student is able to get the full college experience with all the COVID-19 restrictions,” Gugasian said. “However, given the circumstance, I am happy with how my first semester of college went.”Gugasian said she participated in virtual recruitment and was able to join a sorority, which she said has been the best decision she’s made in college so far. She said she hopes to join more extracurriculars later, but right now she is still adjusting.Sherley Hall. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)“I love TCU so much, and being able to be independent and in a new environment has had a positive effect on my mental health,” Gugasian said. “I like being able to set my own boundaries and rules.”Brice Christianson, a first-year pre-business major, said the only thing he feels like he is missing out on is the dorm experience.“The resident advisers are very strict and do their best to not allow non-TCU visitors, and there is a maximum number of people in one room,” Christianson said. “Hearing stories from previous years of what Sherley Hall was like makes me wish I was getting that same experience.”Christianson said he thinks TCU has done a great job making campus as normal as possible. “I feel like my freshman year has been great, and if this isn’t all TCU has to offer, then I am even more excited for the future with in-person classes and no masks,” Christianson said.

Amid violence and fundamentalist pressure, hopes fade for new media laws

first_imgNews Follow the news on Tunisia TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa to go further News June 27, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Amid violence and fundamentalist pressure, hopes fade for new media laws Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate release of Jabeur El-Mejri, who has been jailed under the communication law and criminal code article 121, paragraph 3, for posting cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed on his Facebook page. An appeal court in Monastir upheld his seven-and-a-half-year jail sentence two days ago. The media freedom organization urges the courts to overturn his sentence and the seven-and-a-half-year sentence passed in absentia on Ghazi El-Beji for the same reason. Beji has fled to Europe where he is seeking political asylum.“The confirmation of Mejri’s sentence on appeal, just days after an attack on an exhibition in the Abdellia Palace in the Tunis district of La Marsa and the ensuing riots, has heightened our concern that religious censorship could take a permanent hold in Tunisia,” said Reporters Without Borders, which also deplores the unfair nature of the proceedings and the impact it could have on the future of media freedom.“Such a severe sentence will only encourage the return of self-censorship. Ever since the Nessma TV trial and the jailing of Nasreddine Ben Saida, the owner of the newspaper Attounissia, penalties have been getting steadily more severe in cases involving public decency. The disproportionate sentences and the violence to which journalists are exposed are disturbing omens for the future.”Journalists are subjected to physical violence with complete impunity. They are often targeted by members of Islamist or Salafist groups for allegedly flouting public decency or religious values. Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to deal firmly with those responsible, regardless of their identity or ideology, and to remind everyone that violence is never justified. Freedom of expression and information must be guaranteed and protected in post-Ben Ali Tunisia.

The failure to implement the decree-laws is holding back renewal within the broadcast media and is preventing the emergence of real pluralism in the media and information sector. The vague and contradictory legal situation is extremely dangerous for media freedom. Judges continue to use the criminal code to gag the media, above all article 121, paragraph 3, which penalizes “offending public decency.” In the absence of legislation governing the Internet, the criminal code is being systematically used to punish online content.

first_img 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Education Paula Madison to Speak at PCCs 91st Commencement By ALEX BOEKELHEIDE, PCC Public Relations Executive Director Published on Thursday, March 17, 2016 | 12:17 pm Veteran media executive Paula Madison will address students, family, faculty, staff, and the community at Pasadena City College’s 91st Commencement ceremony.The ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 6, at 7:00 p.m.With more than 35 years’ experience in broadcast journalism and media production, Madison has broken barriers throughout her career.

When she accepted the role of chief diversity officer at NBCUniversal, she was charged with managing relationships with a broad range of communities during the company’s 2011 high-profile merger with Comcast.Beyond the world of media, Madison has interests in media, sports, and various real estate, consumer, financial, and trading businesses, including at one time serving as owner of the Los Angeles Sparks basketball team. She recently produced the documentary “Finding Samuel Lowe: From Harlem to China,” which chronicled her journey to her maternal grandfather’s homeland.Madison serves on the boards of the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education and the Greater Los Angeles United Way, and is a past chairman of the California Science Center Foundation, vice chair of National Medical Fellowships, the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, Cardinal Spellman High School, and chair of The Nell Williams Family Foundation.

Budget 2020, Brexit, and global economic issues discussed at Limerick Chamber…

first_imgBusinessNewsVideoBudget 2020, Brexit, and global economic issues discussed at Limerick Chamber eventBy Staff Reporter – September 24, 2019 285 The business community turned out in great numbers to hear Leanne Storan, Head of Tax, EY, Seamus Coffey, Chairperson Irish Fiscal Advisory and Professor Stephen Kinsella at Limerick Chamber’s Autumn lunch event sponsored by EY and supported by our media partner the Limerick Post. The Autumn lunch looked at topical issues such as Budget 2020, Brexit, and global economic issues.First speaker, Leanne Storan, Head of Tax, EY, spoke on a conservative budget with minimal personal tax changes, social welfare increases and spending changes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Dr Catriona Cahill, Chamber Economist Limerick Chamber described our next speaker as the best positioned person in the country to speak about the upcoming budget, Seamus Coffey, Chairperson Irish Fiscal Advisory Council, voiced his concern about the worrying trend emerging in recent years in net policy spending. He was critical of the government failure to spend within budget parameters.Lastly, we had Professor Stephen Kinsella who gave a good insight into Brexit and the potential implications. Professor Kinsella gave a valuable insight into how workers will fare in Brexit exposed sectors, showing South Dublin as the least affected and counties such as Donegal, Longford and Leitrim being potentially most affected. Professor Kinsella closed his talk with an insight into how we are fairly well prepared for the sectoral shock and for the balance of payments shock, but we are not at all prepared for the regional shock.Leanne Storan, Head of Tax, EY, commented, “EY were delighted to sponsor the luncheon with Limerick Chamber. Great insights and perspectives from Seamus Coffey and Stephen Kinsella, leaving us lots to think about and indeed worry about as we edge closer to a no deal Brexit. As I mentioned in my presentation while there is little to look forward to in Budget 2020, there are many issues which should remain on the Government’s agenda in the short term which would support in particular our Irish SMEs and encourage investment for example enhancements to Entrepreneurs relief and the R&D tax credit regime.” Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic Advertisement Linkedin Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow WhatsApp Twittercenter_img Previous articleLimerick students walk the walk for climate changeNext articleCyclovia gives the city a new perspective Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Print TAGSBrexitBudget 2020businessdr catriona cahillLeanne StoranLIMERICK ChamberNewsSeamus CoffeyStephen Kinsella Email Facebook Enterprise Support Grant should include older self-employed people TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type! last_img read more

Public consultation process for directly elected Mayor

first_imgLocal backlash over Aer Lingus threat WHAT do you want from a directly elected Mayor of Limerick?That is the question now being asked this week after a public consultation exercise was launched by Mayor Michael Collins, and the Minister of State for Local Government  Peter Burke.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Since it was established at the end of 2019, the Independent Advisory Group, formed to advise the Minister on the establishment of a directly elected mayor, has been working to shape a new local authority with a directly elected mayor that will deliver fresh possibilities for Limerick. The Group will report to the Minister later this year.As part of this report, a public consultation exercise was commissioned from and developed by Professor Maura Adshead and her team in the Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Limerick.“On 24 May 2019, the people of Limerick voted to be the first county in Ireland where people will directly elect their mayor. We are now asking the people to think about the potential of that role for Limerick and to tell us what they would like of their new Mayor,” said Mayor Collins.“Limerick has a reputation for being at the forefront of innovation and driving change in the local government sector. And once again here we are going to become the first county with a directly elected mayor. I’m encouraging everyone to have their say and together with our partners in UL we have developed a new and exciting way for people to do that.”Minister of State Peter Burke believes that this exercise in public participation gives individuals and communities across Limerick the opportunity to help shape the new role of directly elected mayor, in advance of mayoral elections planned for next year.“We want the people of Limerick to be involved and invested in this major reform project, which offers huge potential for their City and County. We encourage everyone in Limerick to participate in shaping this new role of Mayor,” he said.Chairman of the Implementation Advisory Group, Limerick-man Tim O’Connor who is a former career diplomat and Secretary General to the President welcomed the launch of the public consultation.“The  Advisory Group has commissioned the University of Limerick to create a forum for people to engage with our work. The Covid-19 emergency has meant that this will be no ordinary public consultation. An exciting new digital way of asking the public, what they want, has been especially created for this exercise. It will be visual, interactive and provides real-time feedback. People can participate as part of a community group, with their family and friends, or as individuals,” said Mr O’Connor.The online consultation can be accessed at https://ourmayor.limerick.ie.

KFO chief says new decommissioning scheme may be needed after haddock quota cut

first_imgThe CEO of the Killybegs Fishermens Organisation has said another fleet decommissioning scheme may have to be introduced next year.Sean O’Donaghue was speaking after the European Commission announced deductions from the 2013 fishing quotas for a number of species, including a 10% reduction  in Ireland’s haddock quota, to offset overfishing last year.Sean O’Donaghue says quota was effectively “borrowed” last year, and the reduction was expected.However, he says the EU scientific advisors are recommending a massive cut in haddock quota next year, and that is going to have serious consequences……….[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/kfo1pm.mp3[/podcast] Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal WhatsApp Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th By News Highland – August 12, 2013 Twitter Twitter 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North News Pinterest KFO chief says new decommissioning scheme may be needed after haddock quota cutcenter_img Pinterest Google+ Previous articleDonegal Competitions Control Committee meet discuss Champiohsip fixturesNext articleLocal man hailed a hero as two men are rescued from Lough Foyle News Highland WhatsApp 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Google+ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Facebook Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firelast_img read more
