Rugby’s fastest man, Carlin Isles, has just become even faster

first_imgTuesday Jul 16, 2019 Rugby’s fastest man, Carlin Isles, has just become even faster The USA Sevens’ Carlin Isles has long been deemed the fastest man in rugby, as he has lit up the sevens circuit for the past six years.ADVERTISEMENTHowever, Isles is only getting faster, as he reposted a video on Instagram saying he has improved his speed from 22.72 mph to 23.5 mph.After spraining his ankle at the end of the season, this may be Isles’ best time since recovering from his injury, or could actually be his best time overall.However, what is obvious is that he will continue to be a threat in the World Rugby Sevens Series with his blistering pace, which is only improving.After Australia Sevens signed track sensation Trae Williams a few months ago, it has been speculated that the American will no longer be the fastest man in rugby. That may have motivated him to make sure he does not lose his mantle, and he is clearly working in the off season to come back faster.This is the video: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

‘We will always be a low value brown person’ – former Gloucester back on experiences with prejudice

first_imgTuesday Jun 9, 2020 ‘We will always be a low value brown person’ – former Gloucester back on experiences with prejudice Former Samoa and Gloucester back Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu has spoken about his experience with the unbelievable disparity in pay between Pacific Island players and those from other rugby countries.ADVERTISEMENTFuimaono-Sapolu was talking to the Pacific Rugby Players Welfare trust, an organisation led by Dan Leo who set out to improve the lives and careers of Pacific Rugby players.The New Zealand born back spent three seasons and won multiple awards at Gloucester, but has detailed how he was told that he would not be remunerated to the same level as other players.This came after contract negotiations with former Scotland player, Bryan Redpath.“I was told straight that there’s no way I could be played more than a Scottish player,” the skilful playmaker said. “I will never be what I achieve, I will always be the stereotype in their mind that I am not worthy of a Six Nations contract or a Tier 1 contract regardless of how I played.”“We will always be this low-value brown person.

Refugee crisis grows in Greece

first_imgSeven thousand refugees arrived in July on the small Greek island of Kos, some 2.5 miles off the Turkish coast, according to the International Organization for Migration. The flow of refugees increased in August.The IOM said on Aug. 14 that nearly 250,000 migrants had crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe this year. Greece alone reported 134,988 arrivals from Turkey since January. While the number of refugees crossing the Mediterranean from Libya — a more costly and dangerous journey — has remained steady, the flow to Greece is exploding.But Greece is in the midst of a deep financial crisis, under harsh austerity rules that prohibit hiring enough people to register refugees, according to Panagiotis Nikas, the head of Greece’s reception system. (The Guardian, Aug. 14) Since most refugees arrive at Greece’s Ionian islands, this personnel shortage is compounded by the difficulty of moving people from island to island.The situation in Kos is made more difficult by the anti-migrant attitude of its mayor, George Kiritsis. He opposed creating a reception center and providing relief to the refugees since their presence interferes with the tourist trade.The PAME trade union confederation in Greece, which represents workers on Kos and other nearby islands, released a statement in Greek, English and French on Aug. 12.The PAME statement said in part: “The problems created by the staying of migrants in open areas without the minimum hygiene measures, causes justifiable concern among the residents. …“You cannot blame the migrants who were ‘uprooted’ from their countries and their homes to save their lives and seek their future in another country, and not blame the imperialists who are setting up wars and conflicts in the world, sowing poverty and misery, which eventually prevent the migrants from reaching their destination.”Besides confronting the austerity imposed on the Greek people by the German and other European imperialists, the union federation is expressing solidarity with the refugees fleeing imperialist-inspired violence in their home countries.Most of the refugees on Kos and throughout Greece are from Syria. Since the imperialist-inspired campaign to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, 2 million Syrians have been displaced and are living in Turkey, where they are not allowed to work or attend school. There are also significant numbers of refugees in Turkey from Afghanistan and Pakistan.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bayer CEO Says Monsanto Merger Still a Win-Win

first_img Werner Baumann, Bayer Chief Executive Officer, tried to soothe the frayed nerves of investors after a recent jury award of $289 million during a trial regarding glyphosate. Baumann says the merger between Bayer and Monsanto still makes sense in spite of the challenges ahead. Baumann told a German newspaper that there is “no reason to break out in nervousness” in the aftermath of the verdict on August 10th. In his first public comments since the decision, Baumann says, “The fact is that absolutely nothing has changed about the compelling logic of the Monsanto takeover, the potential value creation for our shareholders, the attractiveness of the agriculture market, and the goals we communicated.”The California court awarded damages to a school groundskeeper that claimed Roundup caused his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma because of allegations the herbicide causes cancer. Bayer has said it will appeal. The verdict shocked case observers both inside and outside of Bayer in the first of what may amount to thousands of cases. While jury verdicts are typically either overturned or reduced, financial analysts say Bayer could still face as much as $5 billion in costs linked to cases involving glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleU.S./China Talks Draw a BlankNext articleCommentary: Dealing with Our Chemical Dependency  Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 26, 2018 SHARE Bayer CEO Says Monsanto Merger Still a Win-Win SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Bayer CEO Says Monsanto Merger Still a Win-Winlast_img read more

Kurdish journalist freed on bail after being held for four months

first_img Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Turkey TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Receive email alerts News News April 28, 2021 Find out more Birol Duru, a correspondent for the pro-Kurdish news agency DIHA, has been released provisionally from Diyarbakir prison in southeastern Turkey, where he had been held since 10 August. His release was granted yesterday at the end of the second hearing in his trial, which began on 8 December. Duru is still being prosecuted for alleged membership of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which is considered a terrorist organisation by the Turkish authorities.He was found in possession of a PKK propaganda cassette when detained while he was investigating cannabis trafficking in the southeastern town of Bingöl, in which the local police chief was allegedly implicated. He denies being a PKK member and claims he has been the victim of plot. He was additionally charged on 17 November with “denigrating the security forces” in the same case. He faces a sentence of between three and ten years in prison. No date has been set for the next hearing.

He is currently being held in Diyarbakir jail.“The hasty accusations the authorities have laid against the journalist are evidence of abusive use of the Turkish criminal code to act against human rights activists and journalists”, said Reporters Without Borders.“The imprisonment of Birol Duru is based on badly drawn up articles, the vagueness of which allows the authorities to attack journalists at will,” it added.The authorities accuse Duru of being in possession of a video-tape showing Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants attacking a Turkish military vehicle in the village of Eskibalta on 26 July. They also accuse him of planning to supply the tape to news agencies and national TV channels. Police in Dinarbey seized his film camera, sound recorder and stills camera so that “the evidence should not be destroyed”.The journalist’s lawyers have been trying unsuccessfully to secure his release by successively taking the case before a court in Karlovia, the Bingol correctional tribunal and the court of assizes in Diyarkabir. Article 100 of the law on criminal procedure, requires that the accused should remain in custody “if there is a risk of escape, a possibility of destroying, hiding or tampering with evidence or if there is a risk of intimidating witnesses on the part of the accused.”Duru was on 17 November also charged with “denigrating the security forces”, under Article 301 of the Turkish criminal code, for publishing via the Diha news agency, in collaboration with the local section of the Turkish human rights organisation (IHD), a report that security forces were burning forests in Bingol and Tunceli, in the south-east of the country. News The court in Diyarbakir has still not reached a decision on Duru’s fate, or of that of Daimi Acig, a member of IHD, who was arrested with the journalist on 10 August. The first hearing in the trial was held on 8 December before the 4th chamber of assizes in Diyarkabir. One of Duru’s lawyers, Servet Ozen, contested the charge, saying that the video-tape did not belong to his client, and in any case, it was only a propaganda tape the organisation had supplied to a journalist. “My client only wanted to inform public opinion about an existing fact“, said Ozen.The case has now been adjourned 28 December.

The trust filed an application in which it requested the State Government to correct the wrong entry (as internal road to the Trust) in the name of Pune Municipal Corporation. The Urban Development Department, Government of Maharashtra rejected the proposal and held that the Pune Municipal Corporation is the owner in respect of the land. The High Court dismissed the writ petition challenging the said order passed by the Government and held that the land in question had vested under Section 88 of the Regional and Town Planning Act.   While setting aside the High Court judgment which had dismissed a writ petition filed by Hare Krishna Mandir Trust, the Court observed that admittedly the private road in question did not at any point of time belong to the Pune Municipal Corporation. On its refusal to issue mandamus to correct the wrong entry, the bench observed:”The High Courts exercising their jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, not only have the power to issue a Writ of Mandamus or in the nature of Mandamus, but are duty bound to exercise such power, where the Government or a public authority has failed to exercise or has wrongly exercised discretion conferred upon it by a Statute, or a rule, or a policy decision of the Government or has exercised such discretion malafide, or on irrelevant consideration. In all such cases, the High Court must issue a Writ of Mandamus and give directions to compel performance in an appropriate and lawful manner of the discretion conferred upon the Government or a public authority.”The court further observed:”The Court is duty bound to issue a writ of Mandamus for enforcement of a public duty. There can be no doubt that an important requisite for issue of Mandamus is that Mandamus lies to enforce a legal duty. This duty must be shown to exist towards the applicant. A statutory duty must exist before it can be enforced through Mandamus. Unless a statutory duty or right can be read in the provision, Mandamus cannot be issued to enforce the same.””The High Court is not deprived of its jurisdiction to entertain a petition under Article 226 merely because in considering the petitioner’s right to relief questions of fact may fall to be determined. In a petition under Article 226 the High Court has jurisdiction to try issues both of fact and law. Exercise of the jurisdiction is, it is true, discretionary, but the discretion must be exercised on sound judicial principles.”Case detailsCase no.: CIVIL APPEAL NO.6156 OF 2013 Case name: HARI KRISHNA MANDIR TRUST vs. STATE OF MAHARASHTRA Coram: Justices Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee Counsel: Sr. Adv Pallav Sisodia  assisted by Adv Braj K Mishra for Appellants, Nishant R.
