Chris Ashton picks up heavy ban for dangerous play in a ruck

first_imgThursday Apr 1, 2021 Chris Ashton picks up heavy ban for dangerous play in a ruck Chris Ashton has picked up a big suspension following the red card he received against Northampton Saints on Saturday. The Worcester Warriors winger appeared before an online independent disciplinary panel last night. ADVERTISEMENTAshton was shown a red card by referee Andrew Jackson for dangerous play in a ruck or maul contrary to World Rugby Law 9.20a.The former England flyer contested the charge but it was upheld by the independent disciplinary panel comprising Gareth Graham (chair) with Sean Enright and Tony Wheat, which gave him a six week suspension. He is free to play again on 1 June 2021.Independent panel statement – Ashton: “The player accepted that he had committed an act of foul play but challenged the red card on the basis that he had not made direct contact to the head of his opponent.“Any player choosing to contest a red card must prove on the balance of probabilities that the referee’s decision to award a red card was wrong.“The panel took account of all the evidence with which it had been provided and could not be satisfied that the referee’s decision had been wrong. The referee had concluded that the player had committed an act of dangerous play in a ruck or maul that passed the red card threshold, which involved contact to the head/neck area.ADVERTISEMENT“Such an offence carries with it a minimum mid-range entry point of six weeks.“The player does not have a good disciplinary record and the panel increased the sanction by one week to take account of this aggravating factor.“The player had not accepted the charge. There was some limited mitigation present, including on account of the positive way in which the player engaged with the hearing. The panel concluded that a reduction to the entry point of one week on account of the mitigation that was present was proportionate in all the circumstances of the case.“The player is therefore suspended for a period of six weeks.”ADVERTISEMENTYou can view the incident in real time in the match highlights below.

I’m Farming and I Grow It a YouTube Hit

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News I’m Farming and I Grow It a YouTube Hit By Gary Truitt – Jun 28, 2012 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE I’m Farming and I Grow It a YouTube Hit Now a YouTube video gone viral, “I’m Farming and I Grow It” started with one guy having a little fun with a song while hanging out at a Sonic in Manhattan, Kansas. Greg Peterson came up with the lyrics and then persuaded his younger brothers to record the song and appear in the video. Peterson posted the video Monday evening and it went viral in 24 hours with 23-thousand views. Just three hours after that – perhaps aided by an endorsement on the Facebook page of Senator Pat Roberts – the video had passed 53-thousand views. The parody music video that promotes agriculture now stands at more than 889-thousand views. Peterson has been amazed at the reaction. He says they are hearing from people all over the country.The Peterson brothers actually have several videos depicting various aspects of farm life. Their YouTube channel is ThePetersonFarmBros.

Carter Stadium, are used for both home and visiting fans. The fee to park at the lot is $15 but includes a free, air-conditioned shuttle that can transport people to and from the stadium.“We are providing space for people to park and they [TCU] still provide the shuttle to get to the games,” said Terri Mossige, the principal at Paschal. “And then it helps fund our athletic programs.”The school parks around 400 cars and earns $6,000 per TCU game. The funds are then given to each sport to spend on equipment, athletic apparel and traveling expenses.Brittany Rose, the assistant girls soccer coach, said Paschal’s Athletic Booster Club has helped the soccer program purchase goals, balls and practice gear.“The district only funds a limited amount for supplies and uniforms,” Mossige said. “That’s not going to provide anything extra, just the bare bones.”This is where the booster club helps with additional costs. The “Park for Paschal” idea started when TCU joined the Big 12 Conference and the demand for parking rose.Lisa Saucedo, the coordinator for Paschal parking, said the amount raised from each game depends on the opponent.“When it is a sellout game, we get creative and park in the grass and try to utilize all the space that we have here at Paschal,” Saucedo said. “There are many parent volunteers who meet on game days to collect money and direct parking in the school lot.”The partnership between Paschal and TCU is considered a “win-win” by Mossige.“A group of parents went forward, talked to TCU and worked out a deal that was beneficial for both,” Mossige said.To find more information about parking and prices for TCU games, visit Paschal’s website.

Reporters Without Borders backs London demonstration in protest at murder of leading editor

first_imgNews July 15, 2020 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today voiced its public support for a demonstration to be held in London on 15 January in protest at the killing of a prominent Sri Lankan editor.The demonstration will be the occasion for “a new strong condemnation of the murder” of Lasantha Wickrematunga of the Sunday Leader, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“We urge the government to react quickly to end the climate of impunity in Sri Lanka and we urge Londoners to join the rally in memory of the murdered journalist, to condemn repression and the critical situation for journalists in Sri Lanka”, the organisation said. The demonstration, organised by the editor’s colleagues and backed by Reporters Without Borders and other organisations, will take place from 2 to 5pm outside the residence of the prime minister of the United Kingdom at 10 Downing Street.The objective is to denounce the killing of Lasantha Wickrematunga, a crackdown on the media and the desperate plight of many of the country’s journalists.At least 4,000 people demonstrated in the streets of the capital Colombo calling for justice during the funeral on 12 January of the outspoken editor of the Sunday Leader who was highly critical of the government.Demonstrators wore black arms bands and chanted anti-government slogans. It was the biggest demonstration against the government of Mahinda Rajapaksa since he took power more than three years ago. The government has denied any implication in the murder of the editor and has promised to carry out a thorough investigation.In his final editorial, published posthumously on 11 January, the journalist said he knew that he was being targeted by the government. “When finally I am killed, it will be the government that kills me”, he wrote.

Urban Areas Lead in Home Prices; Suburbs Grow Faster

According to Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia, while cities are outpacing the suburbs in price gains, the suburbs are leading the way in population growth.According to Kolko, citing Trulia’s joint Price Monitor and Rent Monitor reports, released Wednesday, asking prices for homes in densely populated (i.e., high-rise-rich) and urban settings are still rising as the spring buying market catches its stride. Asking prices typically lead actual sale prices by about two months, meaning today’s asking prices should be a good indicator of what typical sale prices will be as housing enters the summer.Trulia found that month-to-month asking prices nationally in urban markets rose 1.2 percent in March. Quarter-to-quarter, prices rose 2.9 percent in March, reflecting three straight months of solid month-over-month gains. Both calculations were seasonally adjusted.More encouraging is that asking prices are up a full 10 percent since last year, rising in 97 of the 100 largest metros. Only three metro areas—Albany, New York; and Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut, showed a drop in asking prices year-over-year.It’s the suburbs, however, where population is growing most—something Kolko admits can seem rather strange. After all, he says, “locations with stronger demand should have both higher price growth and more population growth.” And there has been greater demand for urban living since the construction bubble burst in 2009 and badly damaged new home construction in suburban areas. The answer, however, lies in the supply.“Suburbs can have faster household growth but smaller price gains because it’s easier to build new housing in suburbs than in dense urban neighborhoods,” Kolko said. “New construction accommodates population growth while taking pressure off rising prices.”It only seems as if cities have the edge in housing recovery, he said, because home prices in high-density high-rise neighborhoods in cities such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco have risen faster than those for other urban and suburban areas.It also appears to have the lead because construction recovery has been disproportionately urban. In 2013, apartment building construction hit a 15-year high, but single-family home construction is still considerably below normal levels. That means many dense cities where much of the housing stock is comprised of rental apartments have seen a construction boom relative to their local normal level of construction, Kolko said.“Population growth since the housing bust has slowed most in the bottom quartile of counties, which are largely rural areas, not suburbs,” Kolko said. “The suburbs are far from over.” Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.

The original plan called for a octagonal façade and it was changed to a gable which gives the library a more traditional look that, I think, will compliment the city’s design rather than stand apart from it.” Print Article White said the new library design will have more of a stereotypical historical library/ schoolhouse look.The Elm Street entrance of the library will be reminiscent of the old Troy High School.“The front door unit of the old schoolhouse has been incorporated into the design,” White said. “If you take an old post card photograph of Troy High School and put it next to the Elm Street entrance design, they are very close to the same.”Several other changes were made to bring the project on budget. Latest Stories Library projects on track “These changes had to do with things like reducing the number of light fixtures but they were not changes that anyone would know or recognize,” White said.The new Troy Public Library will be a 24,000-square-foot structure with a meeting room that will accommodate 140, an expanded children’s area with its own storytime room, a genealogy department, an Internet area that will double the present number of computer stations and adequate parking.“We will also have an amphitheater on the Elm Street side of the building and lighted sidewalks and seating areas on the Academy Street side,” White said. “The new library has been designed so that it will be as effective and efficient in 20 years as it is today.”White said the library project is moving along at a quick but careful pace.“We don’t want to make a small mistake that could send the project over budget,” he said. “The new library is very important. Right now, we are registering 1,000 new patrons each year. The need for a library is greater than ever and it will continue to grow as more people realize all that our library has to offer.” Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Published 8:52 pm Wednesday, February 16, 2011 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip An artist’s rendering shows the future Troy Public Library.
