Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgThe Wellington Sevens and Anglo-Welsh Cup come under scrutiny this week as Rugby World hands out some winners’ medals and booby prizes… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS We liked the unfussy refereeing of Dan Jones at Welford Road, the Welsh official only ‘going upstairs’ when necessary, and making good use of the TMO when asking him to look at a potential late hit on Sam Olver while continuing the game.Good performance: Referee Dan Jones (Getty)Exeter forward Sam Simmonds scored an astounding try against Wasps. Standing at first receiver off a lineout, he showed terrific pace and then sidestepped full-back Piers O’Conor with the panache of a winger. More Danie Gerber than Dean Richards by the 22-year-old No 8.That match saw the long-awaited return from injury of Matt Jess, which means Jack Nowell – following a pact not to shave until he and Jess were fit again – has finally been able to lose his Castaway-style look.“That beard was mangy and we’re glad to see the back of it,” said TV pundit David Flatman.The SinnersWatery graveOnce again, the Newport Gwent Dragons’ pitch is making the news when it’s the players who should take centre stage.Yesterday’s Anglo-Welsh Cup tie with Newcastle was abandoned after 69 minutes because the pitch had become unplayable, with vast puddles leaving referee John Meredith no option but to blow up early for safety reasons.With the 60-minute mark passed, the Falcons’ 18-6 lead was allowed to stand as a result.Water sport: The Dragons and Newcastle struggle in the rain at Rodney Parade (Huw Evans Agency)Inevitably, the incident prompts questions over whether the Rodney Parade pitch can cope with having three teams – Dragons, Newport County and Newport RFC – playing on it and what can be done to resolve the problems with the surface.Heavy rain is part and parcel of life in Wales (and Britain generally) and it’s the fans who are being short-changed. The Dragons can’t find new investors quick enough.Wellington vacuumSticking with the spectator theme, the attendance at the Wellington Sevens really was shocking. The venue once had a reputation for being one of the best party scenes around, with the stadium selling out within three minutes in 2011, but as Sir Gordon Tietjens said: “There was just no atmosphere and no people there.”Tietjens, now coaching Samoa, has suggested taking the event to Samoa or Fiji, a proposal enthusiastically endorsed by Fijian great Waisale Serevi.Plenty of space: Falling spectator numbers at the Wellington Sevens may force a rethink (Getty)NZ Rugby has promised to review the situation but the writing appears to be on the wall after just 20,000 people attended over the two days at Westpac Stadium – well below the number needed to make it profitable.Strong wind on the second day, plus the quarter-final exit of New Zealand, did nothing to lift the mood in the stands.Just put it down!Kenyan players just love passing to Collins Injera – even when they shouldn’t.Last year Oscar Ouma cost Kenya victory against Scotland in Singapore when attempting to pass to record try-scorer Injera when already over the try-line.At the weekend Billy ‘the kid’ Odhiambo did exactly the same thing, his lofted pass to Injera being intercepted by Australia’s James Stannard. The ultimate coach-killer! Fortunately for Odhiambo, it didn’t prove expensive. Kenya, leading 7-0 at the time, saw it out 19-17 to win the Trophy final and the player finished the tournament on top of the DHL Performance Tracker – beating the likes of Dan Norton, Senatla, Werner Kok and Perry Baker. All is forgiven. But still…Silly Billy! Kenya’s Billy Odhiambo coughed up a try but still had a tournament to be proud of (Getty)For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. TAGS: HighlightNewport Gwent Dragons The SaintsAwesome ScotsIt’s only two years ago that the SRU were considering disbanding the Scotland Sevens team – how ludicrous an idea that seems now.The Scots followed fourth place in Cape Town with a podium finish at the weekend’s Wellington Sevens, yet the bronze they took for beating Canada 28-22 in an epic third-place match could so easily have been a different colour.Having dispatched England in the quarter-finals, they led Fiji deep into the semi-final before succumbing 19-12 in extra time.James Fleming, whose hat-trick against Canada helped secure him a place in the Wellington Dream Team, said: “We’ve been building for the last two years with a new coach, consistent squad, and (last year’s tournament win at) Twickenham gave us belief.“We are hitting quarters and semis consistently now and it’s awesome to have the squad we do.”Joeli’s magicSouth Africa, HSBC Sevens World Series runners-up for the past four years, are clearly the team to beat. They won their second tournament (out of three) to open a 12-point lead over Fiji (51), with England (49) and Scotland (44) leading the European challenge.A spot of shut eye: Fiji’s Joeli Lutumailagi bagged eight tries at the Westpac Stadium (Getty Images)Seabelo Senatla scored eight tries to surpass Fabian Juries’s all-time Blitzbok record of 179, and he’ll be missed by all when he heads off to Super Rugby with the Stormers after this weekend’s tournament in Sydney. Kwagga Smith (Lions) is also leaving the programme.But one of the sights of the weekend was seeing Joeli Lutumailagi – the wrong side of 30 – take on the South African speedster on the outside and scorch past him. A magic moment.Harry in a hurryHistory suggests that someone unexpected will make this year’s Lions squad, and Will Greenwood has followed that line of thinking by picking the uncapped Leinster wing Adam Byrne in his Lions Test team.So here’s another name to conjure with as a Lions bolter – Harry Mallinder. The man who led England U20 to the world title last summer is always at the heart of the action.Flash Harry: Northampton’s Harry Mallinder scores against the Tigers on Saturday (Getty Images)He’s playing 12 but can play 15 or 10 without difficulty, he has a huge boot and he’s not fazed by making errors, such as when he overcooked a penalty touch-finder on Saturday at Leicester.Northampton’s Champions Cup exit denies him a bigger platform on which to impress in the spring, but the 20-year-old is on an upward curve.Easing back inPeople rightly talk about the Anglo-Welsh Cup as an opportunity to blood young players, but it’s similarly valuable as a tool to bring back older heads.It was great to see Tom Croft back to full fitness on Saturday after his back problems while Italy prop Michele Rizzo made his seasonal bow following knee and calf injuries.Welcome back: Tigers prop Michele Rizzo tackles Saints flanker Jamie Gibson (Action Plus/Getty)Saracens openside Will Fraser (hip), in his first start of the campaign, got through 40 minutes at Scarlets, while Rhys Webb (ankle) managed the same period of time against Bristol to put himself in the frame for Wales selection this weekend.Whistler WoodFair play to the recently retired Nick Wood, Gloucester’s record appearance maker, who took the whistle for a charity match between Gloucester Rugby Heroes and South African Legends.The former prop was on the receiving end of some good-natured banter as the Legends won 12-10 in a match that raised funds for Rugby for Heroes and the Gloucester Rugby Community Charity.TV presenter Nick Knowles, who was in the Gloucester team, said: “I had a word with Woodsy and said it’s a Gloucester game, you’re a Gloucester boy, with the net result that he listened very carefully and penalised us for everything. So I think I’m going to have to find him and have a word with him.”Honourable mentionsA ‘bravery award’ to Bath centre Ben Tapuai, for hurling himself at a Rhys Priestland grubber kick as Gloucester’s Tom Marshall bore down on it.

Morgan: “We need spiritual food just as we need natural food”

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply America: Land that I loveBy Pastor Darrell Morgan, D.D.Have you ever wondered where our founding fathers got the idea of a nation of people who could govern themselves? The idea of a nation – of the people, by the people, and for the people – was not a new one.One other nation had this type of government. That was the nation of Israel. When God brought the children of Israel out of Egypt, they had no king except God. God used Moses to deliver them from bondage and then He gave them the Law. Whenever anyone wanted to know what God said about any subject, they went to Moses (later they went to the synagogue to a priest) to find out what to do and how to conduct everything from business to family.Pastor Darrell MorganThe idea of a self- governing people has produced the greatest nation in the history of the world. This is the reason why everyone (or most everyone) wants to come here. Has the idea worked? Yes, for over 200 years now. But our forefathers knew that self-government would only work for a righteous, moral people. It will not work for any other. It’s been said that America’s greatness is found in her churches.In the last twenty-seven years I have had the honor and privilege to pastor the Word of Life Church here in Apopka. The city of Apopka is a great place to grow up, raise a family and grow a business. We have good schools, good people and even a really good baseball team!Having been asked to serve as President of the Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance, I will start in this position on January 1, 2017. Pastor Hezekiah Bradford who is currently (and will remain) the President of the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance is handing these reins over to me. Pastor Doug Bankson of Victory Church is the founder of the alliance and all of the participating pastors have done a great job of coming together to build an organization of ministers of different denominations and ethnic backgrounds. The Apopka Voice has asked us as pastors to write articles on a weekly basis. Just like Israel went to the synagogue to hear the Word of God, so we as citizens of this great nation recognize that we need spiritual food, just as we need natural food. Our desire as pastors and ministers is to strengthen our community by bringing to you what the Word of God has to say about current events. Each week you will hear from a different minister from churches throughout our city. And not only is our goal to bring the Word of God to you, but to also serve you by being an example.As your pastors, and being from different denominations and cultures, we do not always agree with each other, but we have decided to lay our differences aside for the greater cause. Jesus said that the world would know us by our love for one another. So, we have reached across the aisle to work together to bring America back to God and to make Apopka an awesome place to live.Please join with us by reaching out to your neighbors and let’s make Apopka the greatest city to live in!Darrell Morgan is the Lead Pastor at The Word of Life Church in Apopka and the President of the Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance.

Obsolete laws used to persecute two detained journalists

first_imgNews May 19, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Obsolete laws used to persecute two detained journalists RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists to go further SomaliaAfrica SomaliaAfrica photo : Somaliland Sun RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia March 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Somalia News Organisation News Reporters Without Borders condemns the unfairness of the proceedings to which Yusuf Abdi Gabobe, the owner and founder of the newspaper Haatuf, and Ahmed Ali Egeh, the editor of its Somali-language version, are being subjected in Hargeisa, the capital of the breakaway northwestern territory of Somaliland.Gabobe and Egeh have been held since 10 May, when they were arrested and appeared in court for allegedly libelling two government ministers, while the newspaper has been closed since 7 April.“We call on the authorities to drop all the charges against Gabobe and Egeh and to end this sham trial, which reflects a poorly concealed desire to intimidate Somaliland’s media,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“The proceedings against these two journalists violate Somaliland’s own laws, especially the 2004 press law, which decriminalizes media offences and which, according to the Somaliland constitution, takes precedence over Somalia’s penal code. This judicial farce is compounded by a conflict of interest, since the two government ministers named in the offending article are so far the only people to have testified.”Kahn-Sriber added: “To cap it all, the courtroom was occupied solely by supporters of the two ministers, who insulted and intimidated the journalists. All these circumstances undermine the Somaliland government’s credibility and may help to explain why it finds it so hard to win the international community’s confidence.”Immediately after their arrest on 10 May, Gabobe and Egeh were brought before the court for a hearing lasting several hours, during which they were charged with making false accusations, subversive propaganda, publishing false or tendentious information liable to endanger public order, and insulting officials.During the hearing, the lawyers for the plaintiffs demanded the application of five articles of Somalia’s 1960 penal code to the 11 charges rather than Somaliland’s 2004 media law (Media Act No. 27), which decriminalized media offences and which is clearly the applicable law.A request for the conditional release of Gabobe and Egeh was denied during the 10 May hearing, despite the objections of their lawyers.The police closed the Hargeisa-based Haatuf when they raided it on 7 April in response to the offending article about the two ministers. Unfortunately, such an act of censorship is not isolated in Somaliland.Somalia is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

RN Sues Huntington Hospital, Alleging Age Discrimination

first_imgCommunity News RN Sues Huntington Hospital, Alleging Age Discrimination CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Friday, April 30, 2021 | 5:43 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena A registered nurse who formerly worked at Huntington Hospital is suing the Pasadena medical center, alleging she was the victim of age discrimination when she was stripped of her job in 2019 at age 60 despite being told by the new CEO she would be rehired.Lynda Browning’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit alleges wrongful termination, age discrimination, retaliation and failure to prevent discrimination and retaliation. Browning seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages in the suit filed Thursday against the hospital and its parent company, Huntington Health Physicians.A hospital representative did not immediately reply to a request for comment.Browning, now 62, was hired at the hospital in the pediatrics department in January 1995, and her duties included triaging patients, assessing their needs, administering medications and advising people on home care for their children, according to her court papers. Browning also was a certified lactation educator and provided consultations to new mothers to help them with breastfeeding.From 2015-18, Huntington Hospital rated Browning’s technical and professional knowledge as “exceptional” and entrusted her to train new RNs, according to the plaintiff.The hospital’s human resources department notified Browning in April 2019 that her nursing license had expired, which surprised her because she had already submitted the appropriate fees and proof of her 30 hours of continuing education to renew her license, according to the lawsuit.Browning was placed off work for two weeks, but renewed her license in half that time, the suit states. However, the hospital’s new CEO, Dr. Timothy S. Albert, told her in May 2019 that she should resign so that she could then be rehired, according to her court papers.“Relying on this representation … Browning immediately submitted a handwritten resignation letter,” the suit states.Browning reapplied about six weeks later, but she was not rehired and her position was filled with a woman about 30 years younger who was not licensed at the time and was paid less money than the plaintiff, according to the lawsuit.Prior to Browning’s resignation and continuing to the present, the hospital has been replacing RNs with licensed-vocational nurses who require more supervision and cannot perform as many duties as an RN, and are typically younger and paid less, according to the suit.When Browning applied online for open nursing positions at the hospital, her applications were blocked based on her social security number, the suit states. She says she was eventually able to submit her application and resume for an open job in April 2020 but was never contacted.

The three-member bench comprising of Acting Chairperson Justices Bansi Lal Bhat, V. P. Singh Member (Technical) and Shreesha Merla Member (Technical) while rejecting Allied Silica’s (‘Operational Creditor’) claim for Rs 68.44 crore held – ” the Ld. Adjudicating Authority has rightly dismissed the application filed under Section 9 of IBC. Thus, we do not find any reason to interfere with the impugned Order. There is no substance in Appeal which is accordingly dismissed.” In 2018, Tata Chemicals had entered into a Business Transfer Agreement (‘BTA’) for the transfer of Operational Creditor’s silica business on a Slump Sale basis for a consideration of Rs 123 crore. Operational Creditor had contended that the Tata group had transferred only a sum of Rs. 65 Crores and the balance amount of Rs 58 Crores remained unpaid. On account of default, the interest amounted to Rs. 10.44 Crores, and therefore a total of Rs. 68 Crores was due. They further contended that post-transfer of the undertaking, both parties had mutually agreed to continue their respective rights and obligations to lay down the pipeline, trial run, and satisfactory operation etc with the additional scope of work with other tranche payments, which were separate and distinct from slump sale. Refuting their claim, Tata’s contended that the Operational Creditor had suppressed facts and information and that the said debt did not fall under the definition of an ‘Operational Debt’ and the Appellant was not an ‘Operational Creditor’ as defined under IBC. They argued that the consideration under BTA was divided into a 3 Tranche Payment system and that they had duly paid the Closing Balance consideration and Tranche I and Tranche II payments to the Operational creditor even though there existed a non-completion of Tranche I and Tranche II Conditions Precedent. On account of non-completion of Tranche II conditions precedent by the Operational Creditor, Tata’s had adjusted the Tranche III payment against the improvement costs borne by it. Further, they had submitted their reply to the demand notice of the Operational Creditor within 10 days, raising dispute to the claim. The NCLT had rejected the application, mainly on the ground of pre-existing debt. The Appellate bench stated that the Operational Creditor had failed to prove the operational debt and its default and there was a ground of a pre-existing dispute and held – “It is further evident from the Letter of Corporate Debtor dated 06.03.2019, wherein the Corporate Debtor had demanded a refund from the Applicant of Rs 15.01 Crores along with interest for violation of terms of Letter dated 08.01.2019 by the Applicant, in the same Letter the Company Appeal (AT) (Insolvency) No. 1522 of 2019 18 of 18 Corporate Debtor had also disputed that the Applicant is in non-compliance of the BTA and therefore is not liable to receive Tranche II and Tranche III payment under the BTA. These disputes by the Corporate Debtor are raised before the receipt of demand notices. Further, it is also pertinent to note that the Corporate Debtor had replied to the Demand Notices within the statutory period of 10 (Ten) days raising disputes with regards to the claim of Applicant and noncompliance of the BTA by the Applicant. Therefore, in the facts and circumstances of the present case, we are satisfied that there is a plausible contention in the defence raised by the corporate debtor which requires further investigation and that the alleged “dispute” is not a patently feeble legal argument or an assertion of fact unsupported by evidence.” Mr Bishwajit Bhattacharyya, Senior Advocate with Mr D.

After trailing by two runs since the third inning, Utah came up with two runs off of three hits and an error by SDSU in the top half of the eighth to tie the score.
