WATCH: Vereniki Goneva Recreates Alan Shearer Celebration At St James’ Park

By on June 23, 2021

first_img WATCH: Vereniki Goneva Recreates Alan Shearer Celebration At St James’ ParkIt was a spectacular enough sight seeing Newcastle Falcons run out at St James’ Park, home of the famous Newcastle United football side. In black and white stripes, no less.But it all got even better when winger Vereniki Goneva scored. His try was an important one as Falcons edged a humdinger of a match, beating Saints 25-22. Many Falcons fans’ thanks will have to go to Toby Flood, whose assured boot saw the North East side through to the win.The original: Alan Shearer celebrates a goal at his beloved St James’ ParkHere are two big reasons why local lad Shearer is so celebrated. He is the top goalscorer in English Premier League history, with 260 goals to his name. He is also the top scorer in Newcastle United history, having netted 206 times for the Magpies. Lethal and local: it’s the stuff of fans dreams.Goneva can be deadly too. In his debut Premiership season, he scored ten tries in 19 outings for Leicester Tigers. He was the league’s top-scorer the next season and was named the player of the season by the RPA. He already has ten tries to his name this season for Falcons.Related: Itoje sends message with try celebrationHis was not the only notable try celebration this weekend, though. In Saracens’ 24-11 victory over Harlequins – also held at a football ground, with West Ham’s London Stadium a sell-out – Maro Itoje sent a clear message with his own try celebration. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Having bashed through to score in the bottom corner, the lock rolled over with his hands under his head, miming as if he was sleeping. This is a clear reference to comments made in recent days that Itoje is one of several England internationals who had seen a collapse in their form due to tiredness.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter.center_img Having picked up from the base of the ruck, Goneva had a clear run to the line, with Northampton Saints left stunned at the Fijian doing a bit of forwards’ work. After he dotted down, the No 14 wheeled away, right arm held aloft in an homage to one of Newcastle’s favourite sons, Alan Shearer.

In Haiti, an earthquake and a quick Cuban response

By on June 15, 2021

first_imgA powerful earthquake shook northern Haiti on Oct. 6 at 8:11 p.m. Though it measured 5.9 on the Richter scale — significantly smaller than the one that hit Port-au-Prince in 2010 — it still created great hardship. Haitian authorities reported that 17 people died and 427 were injured, figures expected to increase.Reports of damaged structures were incomplete. A major aftershock at Richter 5.2 occurred on Oct. 7.The Oct. 6 earthquake, which shook Haiti’s northwest, was foretold. Throughout September, there were a number of smaller shocks, indicating that stress on the two plates underneath Haiti was increasing. Sooner rather than later, it would be released in a major shock.The general director of the Bureau of Mines and Energy, Claude Prépetit, a geological engineer, held a press conference Sept. 24 calling for reinforcing schools and other public buildings and preparating for a major shock. “All this seismic activity could be a precursor to a major earthquake of magnitude 7 or 8.” (Haïti-Liberté, Sept. 28)The main danger in earthquakes comes from collapsing buildings and other structures.The epicenter of the quake was in the ocean, 12 miles north of Port-de-Paix, northwest Haiti’s largest city. No major tsunami was reported.Reporting on Gros-Morne, a large town to the southeast of Port-de-Paix, Deputy Perilus Worms from the National Assembly told the Miami Herald on Oct. 8, “Practically all of the infrastructure has been damaged.” He said that about 500 families were affected, 476 buildings were damaged and 57 homes were destroyed.At least one death occurred on La Tortue Island, which lies to the north of Port-de-Paix. Eight fatalities, perhaps more, occurred in that city.The main hospital in Port-de-Paix, which was scheduled to be replaced, had to be abandoned, because cracks developed in the structure, the power went off, and the staff refused to enter. Emergencies were being treated on the hospital grounds with some patients in beds and others on the ground, writhing in pain from wounds created by falling concrete and rebar. By Oct. 7, a tent big enough for 15 beds had been erected.The hospital director was hoping to obtain more tents, but the government had set up roadblocks to try to coordinate the flow of aid into the afflicted areas, so it was unclear when the tents would arrive.The government wants to control and organize the delivery of aid, but it was clearly not ready to move rapidly.Cuban doctors respond swiftlyBy Oct. 7, two Cuban medical teams were working in afflicted areas. One was in Gonaïves, the large city south of Gros-Morne, where there were casualties and injuries. A surgical team went to Port-de-Paix, where they treated 164 patients shortly after their arrival. (Miami Herald, Oct. 8)The international response to this crisis, other than Cuba’s, was so tepid that the International Organization of Francophonie, a collection of French speaking countries to which Haiti belongs, which was meeting in Erevan, Armenia, issued a call for its members to rapidly and concretely respond to Haiti’s crisis. (AlterPresse, Oct. 8)Cuba’s medical assistance in Haiti began in 1998, after Haiti was hit by Hurricane George, which caused 230 deaths, destroyed 80 percent of Haiti’s crops and left 167,000 people homeless. Cuba’s response to this disaster was to immediately offer medical aid.Since 1998, Cuba has trained Haitians in medical skills. Trainees are urged to return to their home communities afterwards —  a policy of “brain gain” rather than “brain drain.” Some specialists have estimated that Cuban medical teams provide 70 percent of all medical care in Haiti. Vital statistics from 2007, after 10 years of Cuban medical presence in Haiti, showed a clear improvement in overall health. (Counterpunch, April 1, 2010)The U.S. doesn’t appear to have made any official response to this crisis. It is still maintaining its right to deport 50,000 Haitians living in the U.S., denying them temporary protective status which they obtained after the 2010 earthquake.

Where football’s offense stands entering conference play

By on June 13, 2021

first_imgLinkedin Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ printPro Wells (81) caught his first two career touchdown passes for TCU against SMU last week. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.After TCU football fell to SMU last week 41-38, a lot of the blame was placed on the offense, offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie in particular. Down seven with just under four minutes left in the third quarter, Cumbie called for running back Sewo Olonilua to throw a pass on 4th-and-1.  The Mustangs read it perfectly, and Olonilua, who benches 470 pounds, did not even get a throw off.“For three years, we’ve run two plays out of thatformation,” Cumbie said following the game. “We’ve had that play for a long time, and we practice it a lot; and theone time we call it, they cover it up.”Now, does that mean Frog fans should give up on any hope of having an effective offense this year? Absolutely not. Here are four things to know about the TCU offense heading into Big 12 play.There is no beef between Cumbie and head coach Gary Patterson, according to PattersonSince Cumbie joined Patterson’s coaching staff in2014, he has called plays from the coach’s booth.  This year, Cumbie has been on the sideline forthe entirety of TCU’s first three games.After TCU’s 41-38 loss to SMU, Cumbie addressed the media about the way the offense had performed on Saturday.  As this was the first time for Cumbie to talk to the media postgame in his career at TCU, many saw this as Patterson throwing Cumbie “under the bus.”Patterson denied any of these claims the following Tuesday.“I was a little bit disappointed in the articles written that I’d put coach Cumbie under the bus,” Patterson said.  “I never said anything about coach Cumbie. I’ve been here a long time, and, in all those times, I’ve never thrown anyone underneath the bus to be honest with you. So, the key is, ‘Why would you start now?’”2. Duggan has done well, but we may see other guys in the futureAfter he started last Saturday for the first time in his young career, it seemed like quarterback Max Duggan would be the Frogs’ quarterback for the foreseeable future.  Then, he completed just one pass for 22 yards in a first half that included bad decisions, overthrows and struggles in the red zone from the young signal caller. Though Duggan would improve significantly in the secondhalf, finishing 16-for-36 with 188 yards and three touchdowns, his efforts werenot enough to finish TCU’s comeback efforts.With that in mind, Patterson had not ruled out thechance that other guys see time at quarterback on Saturday.  The obvious choice is Alex Delton, whostarted the first two games of the season for TCU.  The graduate transfer has 124 passing yardson the season.Behind Delton, Patterson also mentioned that juniorMichael Collins could see time on Saturday against the Jayhawks.“Mike’s[Collins] gotten himself healthy, finally,” Patterson said.  “Heunderstands the offense.  He’s a guy that played last year.”Collins made four starts in 2018 after starting quarterback Shawn Robinson was benched then suffered a season-ending injury.3. The Frogs can run the ball, really wellIn lieu of the questions at who will play quarterbackfor TCU, an excellent sign for the Frogs is that they have basically been ableto run the ball at will.Senior Darius Anderson has been off to an explosivestart, including back-to-back 150-plus yard games against Purdue and SMU.  The Richmond, Texas, native is headed forcareer-highs in yards and touchdowns, as he has totaled 368 yards and fourtouchdowns this season.  He is currently secondbehind Jalen Hurts in the Big 12 in yards per carry with 9.0.Anderson is not alone though, as Olonilua tallied 106 yards himself in TCU’s 34-13 win over Purdue.  Olonilua has tallied 163 rushing yards, a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown this year in just ten quarters played.Anderson and Olonilua, paired with the occasional sweep from wide receiver Jalen Reagor (four carries for 40 yards on the season) have been almost unstoppable for TCU this season.  The Frogs have gained 260.7 yards per game on the ground, worth 59% of their total yards, so don’t expect anything different heading into Big 12 action.4. Reagor has been limited, but the tight ends have gotten involvedAfter being named to watch lists for five national awards during the offseason, Reagor was expected to be the core of TCU’s offensive attack in 2019.  Through three games, the 2018 All-Big 12 second team receiver has caught just 10 passes for 102 yards and one touchdown.  Though he has been effective when used in the running game and the return game (eight punt returns for 93 yards), Reagor has been largely a non-factor for the Frogs so far this season.While Reagor has struggled, a very unlikely position has stepped up in Cumbie’s offense—the tight ends.  Though Patterson isn’t known for using tight ends often, he turned to them in crunch time. Sophomore Pro Wells caught two crucial touchdowns to give TCU a chance at a comeback in the contest with the Mustangs.This was the first time that a TCU tight end hadcaught two touchdowns in a game since the Frogs’ season opener in 2011.The blame for Reagor’s slow start doesn’t necessarily fallon him, as he has often been overthrown or missed on his routes.  Regardless, it’s a good sign for TCU thatthey have gotten other weapons going in the receiving core as they work to gettheir star wideout the ball more often.TCU faces Kansas at home in their conference openerbefore heading on the road to face Iowa State and Kansas State. + posts Colin Post Facebook Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

Limerick support for call to ban sulky racing

By on June 4, 2021

first_imgWhatsApp WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Linkedin Twitter Facebook A young horse lies dead on the side of the Kilkenny to Waterford Road, near the Kilkenny Rugby Club grounds after an accident in a sulky race.THE Limerick Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LSPCA) has come out in full support to a call to ban sulkies on public roads.Following an accident in Tipperary involving a young horse last week, the Irish Society for the Prevention to Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA) has stated that the use of sulkies on public roads should now be banned.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The horse involved in the horrific incident broke free from its sulky and smashed into an oncoming vehicle. The driver was uninjured but because of the severity of the injuries caused to the horse, a vet had to put the animal to sleep to prevent further suffering.ISPCA chief executive Dr Andrew Kelly says he wants to see an end to this “life-threatening” activity.“Driving young horses and ponies at excessive speed on busy roads, often by children as young as 10-years-old, is not only risking the lives of innocent road users, and the people involved in sulky road trotting but also the welfare of the animals”, he explained.Dr Kelly maintains that the welfare of the horses has been blatantly ignored and the ISPCA has called on the Government to deal not only with this public safety and animal welfare issue, but to ensure that local authorities carry out their responsibilities under the Control of Horses Act.“We rescue and treat many horses and ponies abandoned and injured from sulky road trotting. The most common injuries we see are broken knees, swollen joints, and neck injuries caused by badly fitted tack,” he said.The Limerick Society for Prevention of Cruelty of Animals say they are inundated with calls from concerned citizens about the mistreatment of horses in sulky racing on the city’s roads.LSPCA chairwoman Geraldine Nardone maintains that the enforcement of current bye-laws by the local authority and Gardaí is all the deterrent that is needed.“More often than not these horses are too small and too thin to be pulling grown men and sometimes entire families. They are unnecessarily beaten and pose a huge danger to the public on the roads,” she told the Limerick Post.“It is also particularly worrying to see small children driving these sulkies. The bye laws state that there should be no horses allowed in the city and were these laws abided by, the problem would be hugely alleviated,” she added.Limerick SPCA are also urging horse-owners to leave plenty of water out for their animals in the hot weather.

Accordingly, a single bench passed an interim order allowing schools to take 70% of tuition fees from students for period from March 2020 in 3 installments.The three installments shall be fixed by depositing the first installment on or before 30.9.2020 while the second installment shall be paid by 30.11.2020 and third installment shall be paid by 31.1.2021, ordered the Court.The bench of Justice Sanjeev Prakash Sharma further held that students who default on the payment of fees cannot be expelled from the school but can be disallowed from attending the online classes, the HC added.The Court passed the interim order in the writ petitions filed by Society of Catholic Education Institutions in Rajasthan and Progressive Schools Association, Nisa Education,School Shiksha Pariwar Sanstha and D.G.J. Educational Society challenging the orders passed by the State Government asking schools to defer the collection of fees from students indefinitely till the State Government takes any decision for the opening of the schools.  The Government also directed that the names of students should not be struck off for non-payment of fees.The petitioners challenged the government orders contending that such directions were beyond the scope of the Disaster Management Act. It was further contended that the schools were delivering online classes in full-scale, incurring expenses. Salaries of teachers also need to be paid, the schools submitted. Hence, the petitioners contended that an absolute embargo on the collection of fees was unreasonable and arbitrary.The State Government defended the order stating that it was issued taking note of the impact of the pandemic and the lockdown on the lives of the people. Parents had to incur extra expenditure to buy laptops for onlnie classes of their children and therefore, compelling them to meet the heavy fee structure, when regular earnings have dropped, is not humane., submitted the stated.The bench, referring to various orders passed by different High Courts on the issue, observed :”…this Court is of the view that prima facie, members of the petitioner association cannot be deprived of receiving the tuition fees for the students, who continued to remain on their roll”.School Fee Waiver Amid Lockdown : How Various High Courts Dealt With The Issue? The Court also expressed the prima facie view that the orders will come within the ambit of Disaster Management Act as the State has wide powers to lay down guidelines to mitigate the loss to the citizens during a disaster.To strike a balance between the competing interests, the Court ordered :”…this Court by an interim measure and till the situation gets normalized, directs the school authorities to allow the students to continue their studies online and allow them to deposit 70% of the tuition fees element from the total fees being charged for the year. The said 70% of the tuition fees shall be paid for the period from March, 2020 in three installments to the respective schools. However, it is made clear that on nonpayment of the said fees, the student(s) may not be allowed to join online classes, but shall not be expelled from the school. The three installments shall be fixed by depositing the first installment on or before 30.9.2020 while the second installment shall be paid by 30.11.2020 and third installment shall be paid by 31.1.2021.However, it is further made clear that the question regarding remaining fees shall be examined at the stage of final disposal of these writ petitions.

“Use Ayurveda Medicines In Govt. & Pvt. Hospitals To Treat COVID Patients”: IA Filed In Suo Moto COVID Matter Before Gujarat High Court

By on

first_imgNews Updates”Use Ayurveda Medicines In Govt. & Pvt. Hospitals To Treat COVID Patients”: IA Filed In Suo Moto COVID Matter Before Gujarat High Court Sparsh Upadhyay14 May 2021 9:01 AMShare This – xAn Intervention Application has been moved before Gujarat High Court in the suo motu proceedings initiated by it to take stock of the surge in COVID-19 cases in the state of Gujarat. The Intervention Application has been moved by Petitioner in person, Advocate Nimish Mahendra Kapadia submitting that Ayurvedic Medicines are helpful in preventing the infection and also in curing the patients from COVID-19 infection.Advertisement Further, stressing that such medicines also reduce the financial burden of the State Authorities as well as of the citizens, the IA states “It is noticed that a very less thrust is given to the distribution and use of Ayurvedic Medicines. Wide publicity is required to be given for using Ayurvedic Medicines and for giving Ayurvedic treatment in the hospitals.” Other averments in the IAAdvertisement There is a requirement of more Railway coaches and that too, at all major affected cities/towns of Gujarat to reduce the burden of increasing medical facilities upon the State Government.Several police cases are registered against the black-market of Remdesivir injections and other drugs. More stringent actions are called for like preventive detention under PASA, PBM, NSA, with wide publicity in media. The role of private hospitals in misusing and selling Remdesivir injections or drugs in the black market may also be directed to be investigated by specialized government agencies.Youngsters having no co-morbidity who underwent COVID-19 successfully are not likely to get reinfected for a particular period and may be willing to work as volunteers in COVID care centres and hospitals, however, they are not permitted to enter into such places. A decision to invite such people, with or without remuneration may be helpful to reduce the working hours and stress of medical fraternity. The respondent authorities may consider having a decision that each Hospital should have its own independent oxygen plant, so that thousands of lives can be saved in the present wave as well as in the next waveAdvertisement Advertisement In this backdrop, the intervention application prays thus: -Direct the respondents to increase the number of railway coaches for COVID care and that too at all major railway stations of Gujarat;-Direct the respondents to create all reasonable facilities at all government hospitals for establishing the contacts among the patients and their relatives;-Direct the respondents to consider the aspect of preventive detention against the black marketeers of Remdesivir and other drugs and of oxygen;-Direct the respondents to consider taking help of private citizens in COVID care centres and hospitals on appropriate terms and conditions;-Direct the respondents to use Ayurvedic Medicines in all government hospitals and to encourage the same in all private hospitals;-Direct the respondents to consider making mandatory for all the hospitals giving COVID care in Gujarat to establish oxygen plant within the stipulated time.TagsAyurveda Ayurveda Medicines Covid Treatment Covid19 Treatment COVID COVID-19 Covid-19 Patient Gujarat High Court Remdesivir Black marketing Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

We are looking forward to collaborate closely with YPF on this new exploration opportunity.“Through this agreement Equinor strengthens its position offshore Argentina, in line with our exploration strategy to access at scale in basins with high impact potential.”YPF acquired a 100% stake in the block in May 2019, following which the first exploratory period of four years started at the block.YPF CEO Daniel González said: “We have a strong relationship with Equinor based on mutual trust built on the development of exploration and unconventional projects. This new agreement deepens our bond with Equinor and allows us to learn from their undisputed experience in offshore projects worldwide.”Currently, Equinor and YPF are partnering on the CAN 102 and CAN 114 blocks which are located in the North Argentina Basin. The blocks were awarded to the partners as part of the open bid round for offshore acreage in Argentina conducted by the national government.In May, the Argentina government awarded permits for hydrocarbon exploration in 18 offshore areas across three basins to companies, including Exxon Mobil, Total, Eni, and Royal Dutch Shell.In 2017, YPF announced plans to invest more than $30bn (£24.7bn) over the next five years to boost its oil and gas production capacity as well as power generation capacity.last_img read more
