Luke Rooney welcomed to New Zealand by Patrick Osborne

first_imgSunday Aug 1, 2010 Luke Rooney welcomed to New Zealand by Patrick Osborne The ITM Cup kicked off this weekend with hard fought matches around the New Zealand. A wrap up of the best action will follow during the week, but for now heres a requested clip of a young guy making a return to Australasia.Luke Rooney will be better known by fans of the French Top 14 as Toulons fullback from last season. In Australia, hes known as a former New South Wales, Penrith, and Kangaroos capped Rugby League winger.Hes has now left the French port city and will be joining the Melbourne Rebels in next years Super 15. En route, the 27 year old has taken up residency as Hawkes Bays new fullback for the provincial championship, yet another path on his union learning curve.“It is pretty hard switching codes. It’s just so technical, union, compared to league. The rucks I’ve never experienced anything like that. I hadn’t ever played union until a year and a half ago, so it’s still a huge learning curve for me, says Rooney.“League was like second nature. I’ve played it all my life. Here I have to kick more and it’s still pretty hard to come to grips with. I think I’m going all right and I’m really enjoying it, and that’s the main thing.”This weekend against Canterbury, a game that incidentally was drawn 23-23 with a late penalty kick, Rooney was welcomed to New Zealand by a youngster who himself has quite a fascinating story.On completion of his studies, young Fijian Patrick Osborne went to Wellington to see relatives last year, but through a strange set of events, ended up being picked to play for a side in a Sevens tournament that was being watched by Canterbury academy manager Matt Sexton.Osborne was asked to go down to them and do some tests. Very soon, a contract was being offered to him after they were so impressed with his speed, workrate, and his bravery on the wing.As you can see in this clip, hes not too bad on defence either as he hit Rooney full on and drove him back in the tackle. Hell be one to watch out for this season, as will Rooney. The ITM Cup is great to watch so do so if you can, and keep the requests coming. The tournament will feature on RD when possible over the next few months.

Second near-disaster as shale oil train derails

first_imgPhiladelphia — For the second time in just over a year, a train carrying Bakken Shale crude oil derailed in Philadelphia, again in an area where potential harm to surrounding communities could have been catastrophic for thousands of people.Eleven cars of a 111-car CSX train traveling from Chicago jumped the tracks around 3 a.m. on Jan. 31 in a South Philadelphia rail yard. It was near the Lincoln Financial Field sports arena and the Philadelphia Naval Yard. The area is also near Interstate 95, one of the busiest highways in the U.S., and close to waterways.While none of the derailed cars carrying the crude oil ruptured, this second near-miss has again raised concerns.A little over a year ago, on Martin Luther King Day, seven cars carrying Bakken Shale crude derailed over the Schuylkill River here in what was described as “a near miss from disaster.” That derailment put several major institutions at risk, including the University of Pennsylvania medical complex, Children’s Hospital and the Veterans Administration, as well as a heavily populated residential section of Philadelphia.Both accidents were predictable. These mile-long trains carrying oil to the Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery in South Philadelphia run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is very little regulation or oversight.The trains carry crude from shale formations in North Dakota, Colorado and Texas. With over 100 cars, each carrying 30,000 gallons or more of highly volatile oil, they have been described as “ticking bombs.”Crude oil from the North Dakota Bakken formation contains a high content of combustible gas, making it more volatile than most traditional light crude. Chemicals used in the hydraulic fracturing process are also thought to contribute to the combustible nature of shale crude.A runaway train carrying Bakken crude oil derailed and exploded on July 6, 2013, near the village of Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, killing 47 people and demolishing the town center.At least eight significant incidents involving crude-by-rail have taken place in the U.S. since 2013, resulting in over one million gallons of oil spilled — more than in the previous 38 years combined. ( Lac-Mégantic, fiery derailments of oil trains have occurred in the Canadian province of New Brunswick as well as in Alabama, North Dakota and Lynchburg, Va. Major derailments of crude trains not involving explosions have taken place outside Albany, N.Y., and in Greeley, Colo.Whether this highly combustible fossil fuel is transported by rail, barge or pipeline, it will still pose a danger. More oil is released into the environment through pipeline spills while explosions caused by train derailments put major populated areas at risk. It is not a question of substituting one method of transit for another. All three methods have proven to be destructive. They all attest to the hazards created by the capitalist system, where greed for profits outweighs all other considerations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Press freedom in great danger after bad month in Nicaragua

first_img NicaraguaAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists CorruptionFreedom of expressionViolence to go further Local media badly hit Organisation A drone hovered over his home and its garden for several hours on 25 November. After forcing him to get into a police car on 30 November, policemen hit him and made death threats, mentioning members of his family. Arrested a total of six times since 24 November, he is now charged with inciting hatred and promoting hate campaigns on his website. News Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage News RSF issued several alerts and recommendations about the situation of Nicaragua’s independent media after a joint visit with the Inter-American Press Association in August. Nicaragua is ranked 90th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. NicaraguaAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists CorruptionFreedom of expressionViolence Radio frequencies cut, transmitters trashed News News Their targets have included Gustavo Jarquín, a journalist with Radio Corporación, who was stopped and insulted by three police officers near the radio station’s headquarters in Managua on 24 November. “You’re from the terrorist radio station that wants to overthrow the government,” one of the policemen said, before hitting him in the face. Spy drones, police violence “The common feature of the journalists and media outlets that are being hounded by the police and by Daniel Ortega’s personal bodyguards is their independent and critical news coverage, which is something the government is unable to tolerate,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. Gruesome death threats against Nicaraguan exile journalist Those who have fled abroad include Carlos Pastora of Canal 10, Edgardo Pinell of VOS TV and Canal TV, and Jaime Arellano, the host of “Jaime Arellano en La Nación” on 100% Noticias. Arellano fled on 25 November because of repeated death threats and other forms of harassment. Other journalists are likely to follow if the persecution continues or intensifies. “These independent media outlets are nonetheless doing a vital job, which is to draw attention to the Ortega family’s violent crackdown and the almost complete control it wields over the country. The persecution of dissident journalists is unacceptable and poses a grave threat to press freedom. RSF supports all of Nicaragua’s independent media and calls on the international community not to ignore these abuses.” July 29, 2020 Find out more RSF also condemns the arbitrary detention of Luis Sánchez Sáncho, a 76-year-old columnist for La Prensa, who spent six days in prison as a result of an ordinary traffic accident, and the fact that many journalists have had to flee the country. After more harassment of independent journalists in November, including arbitrary detention, violence, death threats and spying, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) sounds the alarm about President Daniel Ortega’s increasing authoritarianism and the danger of press freedom being throttled to death in Nicaragua. Policemen have threatened to kill Miguel Mora, the owner and director of the TV news channel 100% Noticias, and his wife, Verónica Chávez, who presents the programme “Ellas lo dicen.” The police have been harassing him for weeks, and both the radio station and his home are permanently watched by individuals posted outside. December 5, 2018 – Updated on December 24, 2018 Press freedom in great danger after bad month in Nicaragua Follow the news on Nicaragua Outside the big cities, community media and local radio stations are being hit very hard by the purge. In the town of León, several members of the staff of Radio Dario – which Ortega supporters torched in April – were arrested arbitrarily by riot police on 23 November and were held for several hours before being released. The staff of Radio Vos in Matagalpa had a similar experience.

RSF and PEN urge Nicaraguan legislators to reject “foreign agents” bill September 29, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information The censorship and harassment take many forms. The telecommunications regulator TELCOR suddenly deprived 100% Noticias of its broadcast signal on 30 November without giving any reason. Other TV channels (including Canal 12, Telenorte, CDNN23, Canal 12, Canal 23 and Canal 51) were temporarily deprived of their frequencies earlier this year. The persecution of Nicaragua’s political opposition and media critics has not let up since April. But now, instead of just obstructing journalists covering protests and social unrest, the police are undertaking direct, violent action against those regarded as overly critical of the government. RSF_en Cartoon from Pedro Molina, a cartoonist and illustrator from Nicaragua persecuted by the authoritiesCarlos Salinas Maldonado, a journalist and editor for the website who also writes for the Madrid daily El País, has been a repeated target of cyber-attacks and online harassment campaigns, while police patrol cars often spy on his home. Motorcyclists followed him as he drove from his home to El Confidencial on 27 and 28 November, repeatedly shouting: “You’re f***ed, that’s definite, you’re f***ed.” RSF has registered many other recent cases of journalists being harassed by Sandinista government supporters, who are particularly active in León, one of the towns that has been hit worst by censorship. The targets have included Eddy López, a reporter for the Managua newspaper La Prensa, as well as Radio Mi Voz director Montalván and several members of his staff.last_img read more

Investigating attack on Monterrey TV studios a “test” for federal justice ministry

first_img May 13, 2021 Find out more MexicoAmericas Reports Organisation MexicoAmericas RSF_en Reporters Without Borders hopes for quick results from the investigation into yesterday’s armed attack in Monterrey (in the northeastern state of Nuevo León), in which gunmen threw a grenade and opened fire on the regional studios of the privately-owned national TV network Televisa and left a message criticising media coverage of drug trafficking. The federal justice ministry is leading the investigation.“Fortunately there were no victims, but this attack shows that organised crime is targeting national as well as local media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Solving this attack will be a new test for the government, which wants to make it a federal crime to use violence against the press.”The press freedom organisation added: “The reference in the gunmen’s message to government involvement in drug trafficking should obviously be treated with prudence, but should encourage the authorities to monitor what goes on in their own ranks. We hail the measures taken to protect the Televisa building and the two other national networks in Monterrey, TV Azteca and Multimedios.”Yesterday evening’s attack was carried out by masked men in two pickup trucks. Televisa’s management said 12 bullet impacts were found in the building’s entrance while the grenade damaged a workshop used by cameramen. No one was injured, but a journalist, Karina Garza Ochoa, received treatment for shockThe hand-written message left by the gunmen said: “Stop reporting only about us, also report about the narco-officials.”Troops and members of the Federal Preventive Police (PFP) immediately set up a security cordon around the Televisa building and the Monterrey headquarters of TV Azteca Noroeste and Multimedios, while the federal justice ministry took charge of the investigation. The Nuevo León justice department said it was the first armed attack on a news organisation in the state.However, it was not the first time journalists have been the targets of violence in Nuevo León. The disappearance of TV Azteca Noroeste reporter Gamaliel López and cameraman Gerardo Paredes on 10 May 2007 in Monterrey has never been solved.Amado Ramírez, Televisa’s correspondent in Acapulco (in the southern state of Guerrero), was murdered on 6 April 2007, after the start of a federal offensive against organised crime. The investigation into Ramírez’s murder has been marred by many irregularities. Reporters Without Borders hopes for quick progress in the investigation into yesterday’s armed attack on the regional studios of the national TV network Televisa in Monterrey, which was claimed by drug traffickers.

first_imgNew assemblages of Radiolaria, including some of the few occurrences of high southern latitude Jurassic and Cretaceous radiolarian faunas, show that several localities in the LeMay Group of Alexander Island range in age from latest Jurassic–earliest Cretaceous to at least Albian. By demonstrating that sedimentation and deformation in the LeMay Group was diachronous, younging oceanwards to the northwest, these new age assessments support the model of the LeMay Group as an accretionary complex. The polarity of subduction beneath Alexander Island was not affected by arc collisions from at least the Lower Jurassic to the Oligocene, and such a long period of continuous accretion appears to be unusual. Deposition of the LeMay Group spans the Kimmeridgian to Albian sedimentation in the Fossil Bluff Group fore-arc basin, thus making the earlier concept of the LeMay Group as pre-Jurassic ‘basement’ untenable. Allochthonous latest Jurassic–earliest Cretaceous radiolarian assemblages with some supposed Tethyan affinities are present in the LeMay Group. In contrast, an in situ latest Jurassic assemblage from the Nordenskjöld Formation of the back-arc basin and a further Jurassic assemblage from a probable trench-slope basin have characteristics believed diagnostic of high latitudes. The biogeographic affinities of radiolarians from cherts in the LeMay Group accretionary complex suggest that both these cherts, and associated basalts, are far-travelled slices of the Phoenix plate. Rocks from the probable trench-slope basin, formerly assigned to the younger Fossil Bluff Group fore-arc basin sequence, now appear to be part of a new, previously unrecognized formation.last_img read more

Culley Two was back up and running by 4 a.m. Monday.Culley Three that produces 270 megawatts of electricity will not be able to run for the next four to five weeks.Vectren says if it continues to have problems, it will turn to Alcoa and other power plants in the Tri-State for assistance.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Warrick County Power Plant Deals Major Setbacks A Warrick County Power Plant is dealing with some major setbacks after a coal silo collapsed Sunday. Evansville City Council Looks to Change Homestead Tax Credit      reported by CHELSEA KOERBLENThe Evansville city council is looking to change the county’s homestead tax.While that resolution was withdrawn at Monday’s city council meeting, it’s not the end of the discussion.Council will bring it back up in a meeting before November 1st, to get it passed.“I personally believe we can not afford eight percent of our homestead tax credit,” said city councilman Dan McGinn.In 2015, Evansville joined nine other Indiana counties offering a homestead tax exemption to homeowners. City council chose the highest homestead tax allowed by the state, eight percent.For example, if someone in Vanderburgh County owes $1,000 in property taxes, with the homestead tax credit they would only have to pay $920.McGinn says, the decision to have the homestead tax at eight percent, something he did vote in favor of, was “election exuberance.”“I wish I voted against it,” said McGinn. “Because it caused us some financial issues with some problems because it costs us $450,000 to $460,000.”Vanderburgh County is the only county in Indiana that offers the full eight percent homestead tax credit.Allen County, where Fort Wayne sits, is the second highest at 7.0404%“Let me tell you folks,” said McGinn. “We can not afford that, I’ll tell you that upfront.”Council has until November to change the current homestead tax credit.McGinn says they plan to use a new formula to decide the new percentage the tax credit should be. He hopes it will be lowered to around six percent.“That may allow us to keep all of our police and all of our firefighters and all of our road crews on,” said McGinn. “Which is something we need to do.”Indiana Counties that have a Homestead Credit:Allen – 7.0404%Marion – 3.0844%Miami – 2.6280%Monroe – 3.4820%Perry – 2.3328%Posey – 5.4261%St. Joseph – 5.8243%Spencer – 4.4136%Tippecanoe – 3.4022%Vanderburgh – 8.0000%last_img read more
