Friday Funnies – Crouch, touch, slap, engage

first_imgFriday Sep 24, 2010 Friday Funnies – Crouch, touch, slap, engage Unfortunately there hasn’t been time for Magners League or Aviva Premiership highlights this week but hopefully tomorrow I’ll get some time to post something. It is Friday though, so time for a laugh with the latest Friday Funnies clip. This one comes from Southland’s meeting with Waikato in the ITM Cup in New Zealand, a match that was low scoring but resulted in Southland continuing their winning run in the tournament. You can view highlights of the match here, in yesterdays post. This particular moment was picked up by a forum member who watched the game live and took the time to send in the request. If he’d not done that, classic moments like this would be missed so please try do the same when you see something happen that you think would be good to share. There’s been a lot of debate lately about the way refs are handling the scrum engagement, with refs down south in New Zealand and South Africa deliberately taking ages to do the call, while up North it’s more regulation and what we’re used to. There are critics of both, as some say the old way isn’t steady enough, while others don’t like the slow, delayed calls down South. What the delay did produce however was Southland prop Chris King doing something you won’t often see at scrumtime. Somehow the ref spotted it though, penalising him and allowing Waikato to snatch three points in a tight game. We can’t condone it, but it was hilarious to watch. Have a great weekend, and keep your hands to yourself.

Free Oscar López Rivera, NOW!

first_imgOscar LópezThe Dec. 31 New York Times editorial titled “Mr. Obama’s Trickle of Mercy” sharply criticized Barack Obama’s miserly use of the presidential clemency process, which has only released 95 federal prisoners who were serving “absurdly long” prison sentences. Oscar López Rivera was not among the 95, but after 34 years, he certainly should have been. Instead, on Jan. 6, as he marks his 73rd birthday in the Terre Haute, Ind., Federal Penitentiary, millions of people will redouble their campaigns to free him. That President Obama has chosen to ignore López to this point is an example of the special punishment meted out to men and women of uncompromising principle and conscience. López was convicted of “seditious conspiracy” along with other Fuerza Armadas de Liberación Nacional members. But it was his political beliefs, his lifelong commitment to Puerto Rican independence and self-determination for the Puerto Rican people, that were unforgivable to the profiteering U.S. bankers and bosses and their courts. Now his comrades have been freed and returned home. It is past time for López, too. All of Puerto Rico — from the independence movement to the proponents of U.S. statehood and commonwealth, to the youth and students fighting for education, to the Puerto Rican workers fighting pension cuts and austerity — demands freedom for López. The support is so strong that the governor of Puerto Rico officially visited López in prison. And in the Puerto Rican diaspora, in the schools and community organizations that López and his brother helped to lead in Chicago, in New York City, where the City Council endorsed a resolution to free him, the voices are loud and united for López’s freedom. Since 1898, when the U.S. defeated Spain and occupied Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Philippines in its imperial expansion beyond the North American continent, the struggle for self-determination and independence against colonialism has been irrepressible. In Cuba, liberated territory has been won. The struggle continues in Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Free Oscar López Rivera and all political prisoners!

Anger at harassment of Palestinian journalists at Israel checkpoints

first_img Reporters Without Borders today condemned abusive behaviour by Israeli security agents towards Palestinian journalists moving around the Territories or returning from visits abroad.The worldwide press freedom organisation said it had recorded five incidents of wrongful arrest in the past ten days. One journalist is still being held, while another needed hospital treatment after being subjected to brutality and humiliation at an Israeli checkpoint by members of Shin Bet (Israeli internal security service).Mohammed Omer (logo), aged 24, was stopped by Shin Bet agents on 26 June after crossing on the Allenby Bridge, one of the borders posts between Israel and Jordan. He told Reporters Without Borders that he was forced to strip naked and to undergo a humiliating body search. He was questioned him for several hours about his trips to Europe. “I was hit in the face and the chest until I lost consciousness. I was then taken to a hospital in Ramallah before being able to come back to Gaza two hours later with the help of Dutch diplomats”, said the journalist, who was left with broken ribs and bruises to the body.The journalist works for several foreign publications and was returning from a work visit to Europe where on 16 June he was awarded the Martha Gelhorn prize in London. On his return he had to wait several days in Jordan for permission to return to his home town of Rafah in the Gaza Strip.“The behaviour of Israeli security services towards Mohammed Omer is unacceptable. The journalist obeyed every one of the Shin Bet agents’ orders. But despite that they had no hesitation in using violence against him and humiliating him.”“We urge the Israeli authorities to accept their responsibility for this abuse, because this type of harassment is never punished”, Reporters Without Borders said.The organisation also called for the release of Fouad Farukh a film editor with the Palestinian news agency Ramattan News, held without charge by Israeli police for more than one week.He was with a group of four journalists and technicians working for the agency who were arrested at the Zaatara crossing near Nablus on the West Bank as they were heading to Nablus in a vehicle marked TV. The soundman Nubul Nabil and journalist Mohammed Marbu were released after six hours in custody while cameraman Rami Jahajha was only freed on 29 June. The four men had wrongly been accused of throwing stones at an Israeli settler, an allegation they immediately denied while they were held at the Ben Yamin police post, to which they were taken with their feet and wrists bound.

Pasadena Homeless Count Drops Sharply

first_imgGovernment Pasadena Homeless Count Drops Sharply Pasadena’s declines in homelessness in recent years are in sharp contrast to the County’s increases By RON ROKHY with DAVID CROSS | Graphics by the PASADENA PARTNERSHIP TO END HOMELESSNESS Published on Thursday, September 15, 2016 | 1:59 pm Community News A Pasadena Commission heard Wednesday that the number of homeless in Pasadena dropped by 16 percent to 530 in 2016, down 56 percent from the all-time high of 1,216 in 2011.According to the report, the biggest subgroups found and surveyed are chronically homeless individuals (225), people with mental health problems (149) and people with chronic health conditions (154).The survey was the result of a collaborative effort between the Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness, Urban Initiatives and the City of Pasadena’s Housing Department. The results of the 2016 Homeless Count Survey were presented as an informational item to the Human Service Commission.By contrast, the total estimated number of homeless people in Los Angeles County grew 5.7 percent in the same time frame, according to a just-released report.Pasadena’s report breaks down the homeless population into two categories — sheltered and unsheltered. Those counted as “homeless” include people living in places not meant for human habitation and those residing in shelters.Among the findings was a 14 percent increase in the number of chronically homeless individuals.Ann Lansing, a Project Planner for Pasadena Housing Department, said that chronically homeless people may recover from homelessness only to find themselves in the same situation later.“In the Pasadena Continuum of Care, eight percent of the persons who exit homelessness return within two years,” Lansing said. “Those persons may be considered chronic once they return to homelessness, depending on how many times the person had been homeless prior to getting housed.”Sofia Herrera, spokesperson for the Urban Initiative, a nonprofit organization that helped coordinate and conduct the survey, said that Pasadena is one of the first cities to manage an accurate homeless count after realizing the United States government wasn’t doing a good job of it via the census.“In Pasadena, we have been doing this since 1992. We were one of the first jurisdictions in the nation to be conducting a homeless count,” Herrera said. “Pasadena has been very consistent in the last 20 years in conducting a homeless count. The methodology is probably one of the most consistent in the United States in terms of keeping accurate numbers.”Herrera said that chronically homeless people make up the biggest portion because those who have stayed out on the streets the longest are the hardest to get off the streets — but their numbers are slowly decreasing overall despite an uptick in 2016.“Those who are chronically homeless make up a higher percentage of those who are in shelters,” she said. “We have been very good at decreasing their numbers.”According to the report, the methodology of the survey involved sending about 130 volunteers into 16 city zones to count homeless people and categorize them by gender, race, age, the state they were born into and the first initial of their first and last names.Broken down by ethnicity, the report found that homeless persons in Pasadena were comprised of 26 percent Latino, 40 percent African-American, 53 percent White and 1 percent Asian.To count the population in more dangerous places such as alleys, freeways and freeway embankments, police are used even though volunteers are put through a safety orientation, according to Herrera.“Safety comes first. We don’t want to send the average person in those areas,” Herrera said. “We send a team within the Pasadena Police Department that is very active in the count. It is very natural for them to go out to the outlying areas where we don’t want to send volunteers.”Though Pasadena’s overall homeless population decreased from 2015 to 2016, the number of unaccompanied children has remained relatively unchanged compared to last year’s count of four, according to the report.“Some of the reasons that could make a youth homeless are running away from home due to a history of trauma in their family or they could have been abandoned,” Herrera said. “We need to react properly if we find a youth on the street because we want to make sure they aren’t being abused by human traffickers.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

It is high time that Fianna Fáil laid off targeting hard-pressed families and older people, and supported this progressive move,” he said.The Fianna Fáil Mayor of Limerick City and County, Cllr Kevin Sheahan, said he had no comment to make when asked whether he agreed with his party’s national position on the free GP scheme.Fianna Fáil councillor for City West, Sean Lynch praised Cllr Daly for his integrity and the passion he brings on all topics relevant to Limerick City and County. However, he believes the Labour representative may have misinterpreted Fianna Fáil policy on health care.“Fianna Fáil have always been the party of the people. They would expand on the free GP care for both the young and old,” Cllr Lynch commented.“They will focus on primary and community care services and increase primary care budget.” Facebook NewsLocal NewsFianna Fáil told to stop picking on pensioners and families in LimerickBy Alan Jacques – April 23, 2015 697 Linkedin Top Fianna Fáil councillor will reject Green coalition deal Email Advertisement Printlast_img read more

77 dead in Spanish train crash

first_img Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal WhatsApp Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry 77 dead in Spanish train crash Google+ Google+ Pinterest Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire Twitter Facebook Facebookcenter_img Twitter By News Highland – July 25, 2013 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic News WhatsApp Pinterest A train has derailed outside the ancient northwestern Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela killing at least 77 people.Some 140 are injured in what is turning out to be one of Europe’s worst ever rail disasters. Officials say it is possible that up to 50 of the injured are in a serious condition – the region’s Health minister said he was aware of 5 people who are in comas at hospitals in Santiago.The government says it thinks the derailment was an accident not sabotage but reports suggest the train may have been travelling too fast.Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who is from the area, will visit the site of the crash later.Rescue workers are still working through the wreckage in hopes of finding more survivors. Lines of bodies covered with blankets can be seen at the side of the tracks.In a statement issued this morning, the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Eamon Gilmore, has expressed his deepest sympathies to the families of those killed and injured.”My thoughts are with those who have lost family and loved ones in this tragic accident. The Galician region and the city of Santiago is a popular destination for Irish travellers and the Irish Embassy in Madrid has been in contact with the regional authorities since the accident occured. While at this stage, there is no indication of any Irish involvement, the situation is still developing and it will be some time before all of those involved have been identified.I would ask any family who are concerned for loved ones they believe may have been travelling on the train to contact my Department at 01-4082000″.It happened just outside the city of Santiago de Compostela where a local festival was due to start last night.Spanish journalist Miguel Anxo-Murado says the train should have reduced its speed on the stretch of track where it crashed.”This is an area in which there are very sharp bends – one of them is particularly dangerous – so he should have gone at much, much lower speeds; say 80 kilometres per hour maximum” he said.”It appears that it was totaling its speed”.”The reason for that (is) apparently that the train was running with a 5 minute delay” he added.

‘Brazen’ robbers blow up ATM, steal unknown amount of cash: Police

first_imgHillsborough County Sheriff(TAMPA, Fla.) — Authorities in Florida are looking for the person responsible for blowing up a drive-thru ATM in the early morning hours Sunday and taking an unknown amount of cash. The blast occurred at the Regions Bank “between the evening of January 11, 2020 and the morning of January 12,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Sunday.Police said that before the blast occurred, an individual used black spray paint to cover the lenses of surveillance cameras in the vicinity of the bank. It was not clear how much money had been stolen from the ATM, police said. The explosion was the third one of its kind in the Tampa area, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said during a news conference Monday. He said that while authorities believe the blasts were connected, they could not say with 100% certainty.“This individual’s becoming extremely brazen in the way he’s detonating these devices,” Chronister said. All three cases occurred in the early morning hours between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.Chronister also said the individual was not detonating the explosive device remotely, which the sheriff said would have put customers at risk. “He’s detonating in person, at the ATM,” he said. “We’re trying to do a profile on this individual to find out any little lead. … I can’t say with any certainty that someone else isn’t helping him in the process, but it appears to us that it’s him, the one, detonating and trying to access the cash at the scene.”While there was grainy surveillance video from the Region Bank explosion, a description of a suspect or suspects was not available. Chronister said he didn’t have any information on how sophisticated the explosives were. “Our detectives are out now canvassing local businesses that were close to the bank to try to see whatever surveillance video they may have,” he said.There was a similar incident on Dec. 22 in Tampa and another in November 2019 in Pinellas County. Chronister said the suspect or suspects in those blasts were not able to retrieve any money from those ATMs. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were also working with his department to investigate the explosions.Anyone with information on a possible suspect was asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200. “If you hear an explosion, please reach out and call us,” Chronister said. “It will help us not only narrow down the timeline but try to catch this suspect in the course of what he’s doing. … You never know the damage or the harm he could cause to anyone else.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
