  • England v France – the Rugby World preview, with video and teams

    first_imgBAGSHOT, ENGLAND – OCTOBER 25: Martin Johnson, the England manager looks on during the England rugby training at Pennyhill Park Hotel on October 25, 2010 in Bagshot, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Johnson was also asked why he thought things were seemingly coming together for England in this Six Nations? “How do things come together? Over the last 18 months we have had a group of young players who have forced their way into the team, they have had their opportunities to play and taken them,” Johnson added. “The form and consistency has improved and we are starting to get to a place where the foundations are in place.”Reflecting on the defeat a year ago Johnson added: “We have got to be a bit better. We can’t let them have their way and then it went into the refs hands. A lot of times at scrums you can argue either way who is right and who is wrong but he stuck his arm up Without being too technical and naming names we have got to stop them doing what they have got to do. We are better equipped at doing that now.”Last year, we took Dan off and put Dave on but it wasnt really down to Dan at that point. It is pretty clear when you look at what was happening. We have to be very strong on our loosehead side. Mas likes to get into that gap and put a lot of pressure through there. We have to stop him. know it’s coming. We have got to be up to it.Look out for Chris Ashton breaking another record…if he scores it will be his 10th try in 1o Tests, making him the fastest Englishman to score 10, two ahead of Mark Cueto’s previous record.To watch a video interview with Martin Johnson click here England: Ben Foden (Northampton); Chris Ashton (Northampton), Mike Tindall (Gloucester, captain), Shontanye Hape (Bath), Mark Cueto (Sale); Toby Flood (Leicester), Ben Youngs (Leicester); Andrew Sheridan (Sale), Dylan Hartley (Northampton), Dan Cole (Leicester), Louis Deacon (Leicester), Tom Palmer (Stade Francais), Tom Wood (Northampton), James Haskell (Stade Francais), Nick Easter (Harlequins).Replacements: Steve Thompson (Leeds), Alex Corbisiero (London Irish), Simon Shaw (Wasps), Hendre Fourie (Leeds), Danny Care (Harlequins), Jonny Wilkinson (Toulon), Matt Banahan (Bath).France: Clement Poitrenaud (Toulouse); Yoann Huget (Bayonne), Aurelien Rougerie (Clermont), Yannick Jauzion (Toulouse), Vincent Clerc (Toulouse); Francois Trinh-Duc (Montpellier), Dimitri Yachvili (Biarritz); Thomas Domingo (Clermont), William Servat (Toulouse), Nicolas Mas (Perpignan), Julien Pierre (Clermont), Lionel Nallet (Racing-Metro), Thierry Dusautoir (Toulouse, captain), Imanol Harinordoquy (Biarritz), Sebastien Chabal (Racing-Metro).Replacements: Guilhem Guirado (Perpignan), Sylvain Marconnet (Biarritz), Jerome Thion (Biarritz), Julien Bonnaire (Clermont), Morgan Parra (Clermont), Damien Traille (Biarritz), Alexis Palisson (Brive) RBS Six Nations: England v FranceVenue: Twickenham Date: Saturday, 26 February Kick-off: 1700 GMTCoverage: Watch on BBC One, BBC HD channel, Red Button and BBC Sport website (also on BBC America); post-match forum 1900-1930; listen on BBC Radio 5 live & online; text commentary on BBC Sport website and mobilesThis year’s Grand Slam could be decided at Twickenham when the only two unbeaten teams in the Championship go head-t0-head in the Championship, England being the bookies favourites, which they always when they are at home, almost ignoring who they are playing.Manager Martin Johnson was in typically pragmatic mood this week, even correcting the media who suggested this was a Grand Slam decider. “That’s factually inaccurate for a start,” he chided the media!A year ago England first showcased their new expansive style but it wasn’t good  enough because they lost the battle in the scrum and if they lose again at Twickenham, France will win their ninth successive match in the RBS 6 Nations.In Paris the France front row out-thought an inexperienced England team by refusing to scrum straight on, the responsibility of both tighthead Dan Cole and hooker Dylan Hartley. At Twickenham Cole, Hartley and Andrew Sheridan need to take responsibility for keeping the scrum straight. The battle within a battle could decide the game. Sheridan’s return is crucial.“Andrew is a big powerful man. He is against a smart tighthead in Dan Cole,” said Johnson. “They will want to get an advantage there rugby-wise and that will also be a psychological advantage. Andrew has been good with us this year. He is strong and powerful and he stands up in the tougest physical challenges in world rugby. He is developing aroudn the field and hopefylly we will see him carry on Satrurday. First things first he has a job to do in that front row.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The performances take place in churches, concert halls and theatres, village venues and large auditoria in places as diverse as Germany and Sierra Leone as well as the UK.Kate Meadows, Project Director, Voices for Hospices said: “Voices for Hospices raises much needed awareness and finance for the hospice movement, which relies very heavily on voluntary support for funding in order that it can extend its care free of charge to patients and their loved ones.

    first_imgTwitter A PUBLIC meeting to discuss the proposed €18million footbridge across the River Shannon will examine the project in the context of overall development plans for the city.The meeting, in the Strand Hotel at 8pm on Monday, April 25, is being organised by the Footbridge Folly Action Group who will be writing to the City Manager and local representatives of Fáilte Ireland, inviting them to attend the meeting and explain their vision for their proposed bridge.Spokesperson for the group Dr Catherine Swift explained, “Even before they’ve told the council their plans, this bridge is already costing millions. If the council painted their own properties in Nicholas Street, that would cost only a few hundreds and it would indicate to all that they are serious about developing a positive image of the city for visitors.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Dr Swift suggests that pop-up displays in and around King John’s Castle, including on Nicholas Street, Merchant’s Quay, the park by Arthur’s Quay and Thomond Bridge to create footfall in the area, should be encouraged.“In that context, shouldn’t we be thinking of ways to showcase the talents and initiatives of Limerick people themselves?“Tourists tend to seek out the unique and unusual – that’s best found when communities are expressing their own voice and their own heritage,” she Alan [email protected] Facebook Advertisement Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Linkedin WhatsApp TAGSDr Catherine SwiftFáilte IrelandFootbridge Folly Action GrouplimerickRiver Shannon center_img NewsLocal NewsPublic meeting in Limerick over €18 million footbridgeBy Alan Jacques – April 22, 2016 927 Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Previous articleBig increase in patients waiting more than a year for appointment at University Hospital LimerickNext article#Limerick infant to remain in emergency foster care Alan Jacques Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Email WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads last_img read more

The superintendence, direction and control over the conduct of elections in exclusively within the domain of the Election Commission as held in Mohinder Singh Gill vs. The Chief Election Commissioner, (1978) 1 SCC 405 and could not have been substituted by the Hon’ble High Court. The balance of convenience is in favour of the Petitioner and against the Respondents. The Petitioner would be subject to irreparable injury if the impugned interim order is not stayed by this Hon’ble Court”- Excerpt of PleaThe order of the MP High Court is further challenged on the ground that the State of Madhya Pradesh also permitted “public gatherings” in assemblies where elections are being held, subject to specified restrictions.In this context, the SLP states,”In the PIL filed by the Petitioner, there is no challenge to either the Covid-19 Guidelines dated 29.09.2020 issued by the Election Commission or the orders dated 08.10.2020 passed by the Central Government and the State of Madhya Pradesh respectively….. The restraint on District Magistrates in issuing permission for public gathering and the condition to deposit double the money for masks and sanitizers is completely without jurisdiction”It is further contended that since Tomar was not a party before the Madhya Pradesh High Court in which the impugned order was passed (in the case titled Ashish Pratap Singh v. State of MP & Ors.), violated the Petitioner’s right to conduct election campaign through physical gatherings as permitted by the Election Commission; Central Government and State of Madhya Pradesh.Next Storylast_img read more

  • Christopher Columbus statue debate rises as controversial statues fall across the country

    first_imgSpencer Platt/Getty ImagesBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — As cities and organizations across the country continue to take down monuments, memorials and other symbols of hate, one controversial historical figure has come back into the spotlight: Christopher Columbus.While the debate over the controversial European explorer reignited, some of his opponents have already taken bold action to his memorials.On Tuesday night, a Columbus statue in Richmond, Virginia, was torn down by protesters, set on fire and then submerged into a lake, police said. Overnight Tuesday, another Columbus statue in Boston was decapitated, according to Boston police.In New York City, Columbus’s opponents are re-upping their calls to the city to remove the 14-foot marble statue that stands above a pedestal in Columbus Circle outside Central Park.Melissa Iakowi:he’ne’ Oakes, the executive director of the nonprofit American Indian Community House, said now is the right time to remove the 128-year-old statue, because the city did not need a monument to a figure who had a history of destroying and enslaving indigenous people.“I think with everything that is going on now … I don’t see why (the city) would have an argument against keeping the Christopher Columbus statue,” she told ABC News.Proponents for the statue acknowledge that Columbus’ history was far from the heroic, noble explorer portrayed in some history books; however, they said the history behind the New York statue is more nuanced.Richard Alba, a distinguished professor of sociology at the Graduate Center of CUNY, who was part of a special commission that reviewed controversial monuments in New York City, noted that the New York statue was erected mostly to honor Italian Americans persecuted during the 19th century.“The history of that statue is different from the Confederate statues of the south, which were put up to symbolize the triumph of whites over blacks in the south,” Alba told ABC News.Experts say that the future of the New York statue and other Columbus monuments will have to have some changes to educate the public on the figure’s nuances and help people understand the nation’s history.Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office did not immediately return messages for comment about the Columbus statue, however, in the past, he has spoken in favor of its current placement. In 2018, after the monument commission turned in its report, de Blasio ordered that new signage be placed around the statue that explained Columbus’s history and the specific history behind the monument.A spokeswoman for the mayor reiterated that the city decided not to remove the Columbus statue based on the commission’s report and will work on other measures to “add context to the monument and honor Indigenous Peoples.”Oakes said for her and other indigenous Americans, that wasn’t enough. Having a tall statue of Columbus look down on the community from a 27-foot pedestal is degrading, even if there is signage describing his history, according to Oakes.“They don’t care, and they don’t accept it,” she said.Alba, who said he supports the removal of Confederate statues across the country, said that he and other commission members listened very carefully to the statue opponents and acknowledged their concerns. In the end, the commission contended that the best move forward was to supplement Columbus’ monument with new memorials of diverse historical figures.“I think, again, our monuments have to represent our diversity, and part of that diversity is Italian Americans who came in as the most disparaged of those European groups,” Alba said.In 2018, the city removed a statue of J. Marion Sims, a 19th-century surgeon who conducted experimental operations on female slaves, from Central Park, following the commission’s report. It also has plans to erect statues of minority women figures including Rep. Shirley Chisholm and Billie Holiday, based on feedback from New Yorkers.Saul Cornell, the Paul and Diane Guenther Chair in American History at Fordham University, said statues of historical figures are problematic for educational purposes since most classical statue designs are made to glorify the figure. In Columbus’s case, the statues on their own do not help with the debate about the explorer’s complicated legacy to indigenous and Italian Americans.“We don’t have a good public record of dealing with our history thoughtfully and engagingly,” Cornell told ABC News. “A statue is a very specific form of the past.”Cornell said such memorials could be instructive if they are in a setting like a museum that is filled with historical literature that paints a full picture to the public. He suggested that cities with Columbus statues bring all the stakeholders together and work out a solution.As for the reports of vandalism of other Columbus statues, Cornell noted that this type of protest has been going on throughout history, especially when figures are revealed to be less than heroic.He said those who own those Columbus memorials should address the concerns from the public and work quickly on a solution for all parties.“History is a powerful wave and those who try to hold it back will be crushed,” Cornell said. “The question is how do you control the wave so that it has positive results and not destructive results.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
