Leinster knock champions Munster out of the Heineken Cup – Montage

first_imgSaturday May 2, 2009 Leinster knock champions Munster out of the Heineken Cup – Montage Leinster shunned their underdog status as they convincingly beat Munster 25-6 in the Heineken Cup Semi Final at Croke Park on Saturday.They avenged their 30-6 semi-final mauling by Munster in 2006 as they defied the odds to record a famous win over their arch rivals in front of 82 000 fans.Brian ODriscoll received the Man of the Match award, but was humble in acceptance as the Leinster pack were immense on the day.“I’ll certainly accept it on behalf of them,” he added. “They set the platform for us to get our tries.“Games are won and lost at ruck time. The speed of ball is critical.“We managed to get some quick ball ourselves when we were going forward and managed to slow them down which was exactly as we wanted it.We’ve lost twice to Munster this season as well so we really felt we owed them one,” he said.“People had questioned our integrity, our pride, our passion, but we produced a big passionate performance today.”Weve got a short montage from the game for you, but will try get full highlights up soon too.

If so, why was the preferred candidate was chosen ahead of them?They also point out that while Hancock’s statement to the press said ‘Select Committee advisory decisions have often been set aside by appointing Ministers’, such action is in fact unusual, ‘having happened only three times out of nine negative committee reports, following over 100 pre-appointment hearings.’The Committee has asked for a response by noon Monday 26 February, following which they will issue their report on the appointment.Main image: Baroness Stowell.

The panel assessed all candidates against the criteria as set out in the role specification. I confirm that the panel unanimously agreed the outcome that Baroness Stowell was not just the most qualified candidate, but is an exceptionally strong candidate for this role. They noted that she delivered an excellent presentation which was well structured and spanned a wide range of issues, evidencing an ability for clear strategic oversight. They were also impressed by the high degree of emotional intelligence and personal integrity that Baroness Stowell displayed.”However, yesterday (22 February) the Committee wrote again to Hancock in response, expressing disappointment that the concerns they had raised had been so quickly dismissed and demanding more answers to the points they had raised in their previous letter.The Committee also raises further questions: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 DCMS Committee demands more detail over Baroness Stowell appointment About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

WW editorial: Whose State of the Union?

first_imgThe U.S. president’s annual State of the Union address to Congress has morphed from its more humble beginnings into a full-on, Hollywood-style extravaganza, broadcast on all television channels and radio stations to tens of millions of people, in which the big-business party in office tries to burnish its image with a speech full of tear-jerking anecdotes and self-congratulatory platitudes.Trump’s Feb. 5 talk — delayed by two weeks while the government was shut down over his demand for a $5.7 billion wall on the southern border — was no exception to this tradition.It would take more than a modest editorial to tease apart all the lies, exaggerations and threats contained in this 90-minute speech. Suffice it to say that this silver-spoon billionaire repeated, ad nauseam, his usual vicious attacks on migrants and his demagogic attempts to speak for “American workers.” He tried to take credit for gains made by women and Black people — yes, roll your eyes — and of course made a big pitch to increase the already astronomical military budget.In sum, he tried to make it appear that everything is getting better in this country for the people and that he should get all the credit for this presumed progress.Of course, in Trump’s circle things ARE getting better. There are more billionaires, and their wealth has vastly increased, while their taxes decreased. This stands in contrast to the struggle of workers, especially younger people starting their often futile search for a stable, decent-paying job, many of them burdened with immense debt for post-high-school education.Big bright spots Are we saying that everything about the real “State of the Union” is bad? No, there are some pretty big bright spots. Of course, they’re not what Trump or Democratic Party leaders want to talk about.Take the information recently released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics about strikes in 2018.There were 20 major work stoppages in the U.S. — the highest since 2007. And the number of workers involved in them — 485,000 — was the most since 1986. And this is only “major” work stoppages. It doesn’t count all the smaller strikes. According to the BLS, “Educational services and health care and social assistance industry groups accounted for over 90 percent of all workers idled in 2018. “In 2018, the largest work stoppage by days idle was between the Arizona State Legislature and Arizona Education Association and involved 81,000 teachers and staff totaling 486,000 days of idleness. The second largest stoppage in 2018 involved the Oklahoma State Legislature and the Oklahoma Education Association accounting for 405,000 days idle. Statewide major work stoppages in educational services also occurred in West Virginia, Kentucky, Colorado, and North Carolina.”These strikes indicate the many workers today fighting back against their eroding standard of living. Many of these strikes were actually illegal — especially the ones by education workers in states that don’t recognize their right to strike. But the authorities had to negotiate with them and their unions without arrests because the teachers had such strong popular support. This reflects a big change in class consciousness, on the part of both the teachers themselves and the communities they serve.Millenials and Generation Zers Another big shift to include in our rosy “State of the Union” report is the state of mind of the Millennials and Generation Zers, as reflected in polls taken by the Pew Research Center. Millennials were in their 20s and 30s last year. Gen Zers were between 13 and 21. “When it comes to views on race, the two younger generations are more likely than older generations to say that blacks are treated less fairly than whites in the United States today. And they are much more likely than their elders to approve of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem as a sign of protest. “Majorities among Gen Z and the Millennial generation say increasing racial and ethnic diversity in the U.S. is a good thing for society, while older generations are less convinced of this. And they’re more likely to have a positive view of interracial and same-sex marriage than their older counterparts. “Gen Z is the most racially and ethnically diverse generation we have seen. While Generation Z’s views resemble those of Millennials in many areas, Gen Zers are distinct from Millennials and older generations. Gen Zers are more likely than Millennials to say they know someone who prefers that others use gender-neutral pronouns to refer to them.”Look out millionaires, patriarchs, slave-driving bosses and migrant bashers. Gen Z is gonna get ya!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Stop the U.S.-backed massacres in Haiti!

first_imgA week of solidarity actions for the people’s struggle in Haiti reached hundreds of people from Oakland to San Jose beginning Sept. 30. The public meetings and demonstrations were organized by the Haiti Action Committee to protest police terror and massacre of the Haitian people who are resisting with their lives the current U.S.-financed and -armed corrupt government of President Jovenel Moïse.The week began on September 28 with a well-attended public meeting, “The Lasalin Massacre and the Human Rights Crisis in Haiti” at the Eastside Arts Alliance in Oakland. Videos documenting police shooting unarmed Haitian demonstrators in Lasalin were shown. Pierre Labossiere, a leader of the Haiti Action Committee, gave a political update about the situation in Haiti. Seth Donnelly, of HAC, and Judith Mirkinson, of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, announced the release of a joint report condemning human rights violations in Haiti. September 30 was chosen for a rally to mark the anniversary of the first coup against democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 1991, orchestrated by the U.S.People rallied again that day in front of the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco to demand an end to U.S. support and financing of the current Haitian government. Labossiere spoke on the inhumanity of the U.S.-backed Haitian regime, saying: “The people of Haiti — what they want is to have access to a decent job, to have access to education, to have access to health care, to have access to clean water — everything that human beings are entitled to.“ He pointed out that, throughout the country’s history, the people of Haiti have suffered countless bloody military coups and massacres by fighting for these basic rights. Many organizations, including the Task Force on the Americas, Arab Resource and Organizing Center, and Workers World Party, delivered solidarity messages to the struggle of the Haitian people at the rally.On Oct. 2, students led a rally and march in the South Bay. Chanting “Stop the occupation of the Haitian nation,” people gathered in San Jose in front of the Robert Peckham U.S. Federal Building to demand “U.S. out now!” The event featured many local activists and leaders, including Akubundu Amazu, of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party, who has been on two delegations to Haiti. Amazu expressed his organization’s admiration for  the Haitian people, for their “resilience” and their continued resistance to U.S. colonialism. Following the rally, a small group of students and other Haiti activists marched and blocked the entrance of the federal building to demand an end to the U.S.-backed massacres. Labossiere and the Haiti Action Committee affirmed its continuing fight for justice for the people of Haiti.For more information about the struggle in Haiti and to get involved in the Haiti Action Committee, check out facebook.com/HaitiActionCommittee/.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Foreign news media still being arbitrarily denied accreditation

first_img “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation News News Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more September 29, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Foreign news media still being arbitrarily denied accreditation May 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Belarus May 28, 2021 Find out more The press freedom organisation has signed a statement issued by the mission at the end of its five-day visit noting that: “Accreditation of journalists working for Belarus or foreign media, as well as the registration of offices of media, are restricted by non-transparent and discriminatory decisions of the authorities.”Under a new media law that took effect on 8 February, foreign news media and their correspondents – both foreigners and Belarusians – must obtain accreditation from the foreign ministry before they can begin working. In practice, the authorities reject or ignore most requests, forcing journalists to work illegally.“Despite our repeated calls, the Belarusian authorities continue to demonstrate bad faith by rejecting requests for accreditation by foreign media and their local correspondents,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We therefore reiterate our appeal to the foreign ministry to examine all these requests and respond favourably to them.”Aleksey Malkov and Yuri Babenko, two journalists working for the Russian television station NTV, were expelled from Belarus on 14 August for working without accreditation. They had been trying to do a story about the disappearances of a journalist, two opposition members and a businessman in 1999 and 2000. Dzmitry Kisel, the local correspondent of the Polish-Dutch radio station Radio Racyja, and Aleh Razhku, a journalist accused of working for Belsat TV without permission, received warnings from the prosecutors of Brest and Homyel on 23 September. If they continue working, they could be fined the equivalent of about 500 euros.Belsat TV originally requested accreditation on 20 December 2008, before the new law was promulgated, but it had to start over in March after the foreign ministry told it that certain documents were missing from its application. Under the new law, the ministry is supposed to respond to requests within a month, but the station is still waiting to be told of its final decision.Radio Racyja journalists Viktar Parfyonenka was refused accreditation on 25 September on the grounds that he had begun to work illegally without waiting for permission. Parfyonenka insists that he followed all the procedure correctly. “Before beginning to work for Radio Racyja, I submitted an application for accreditation to the ministry in May,” he told Reporters Without Borders. When I called them, they told me all my papers were in order. But then they took four months to respond. Meanwhile, I had to earn a living. So I began working for the station before getting a reply.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Radio Racyja and Belsat TV are among the few independent news outlets in Belarus and the foreign ministry would do well to to stop obstructing their work. As Belarusian government says it is determined to pursue an ‘Eastern Partnership’ with the European Union, it should show a real determination to improve the press freedom situation.” News Four days after a joint international press freedom mission to Belarus, Reporters Without Borders today called on the Belarusian government to stop obstructing the work of journalists working for foreign news media.
