first_imgLEICESTER, UNITED KINGDOM – JANUARY 10: A general view of the snow-covered pitch at Leicester Lions Rugby Club on January 10, 2010 in Leicester, United Kingdom. (Photo by Matthew Lewis/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Third-placed Bedford’s match against Plymouth Albion has been re-scheduled for Saturday at 2pm. Plymouth, third from bottom, are capable of causing an upset or two, as they showed with a comfortable home win over Leeds. With all sorts of trouble off the pitch, cash-strapped Albion are fighting every inch of the way to stay in the Championship. To review recent developments at Brickfields, follow this link.Moseley travel to leaders Bristol on Sunday with a mathematical chance of catching Nottingham, who still need a point for a place in the top eight, and avoiding the relegation scrap. However, Bristol should breeze past the finish line ahead of the visitors, especially as many recent signings will be keen to make an impact.Also on Sunday, Nottingham are at home to the inconsistent Leeds – currently in fifth place. Carnegie have only won four times away from home but should start as favourites, particularly as Nottingham have only managed five home wins this season. Leeds are targeting a place in the top four which would give them two points to take into the play-offs.So too are London Welsh, currently in fourth slot, and they play hosts to Doncaster on Sunday. The Exiles will be looking for their seventh win on the trot, and start in pole position, although their home record is unremarkable. It would have been even worse had they not managed to close out a couple of tight encounters.Rotherham, who have an enviable home record with eight wins already under their belts, take on the Cornish Pirates – whose away record is dire – at Clifton Lane on Saturday. Although the Pirates are sitting in second place, the Titans should shade this one. Championship: Round 20 was a no-go this weekCHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP – ROUND 20…or not…as was the case.With a fairness seldom seen in any sport, the return of winter managed to wipe out the entire Championship programme last weekend, writes Richard Grainger.And with foresight not normally attributable to the RFU, this weekend was left as a reserve date, should it be necessary for any clubs to catch up on cancellations. And so the whole of week 20’s fixtures have been re-arranged for one week hence.With heavy snow blanketing most of England, especially in the south, matches scheduled for Friday at Bristol, Rotherham and Bedford were the first casualties of the freeze.The remaining fixtures at the Old Deer Park, Esher and Nottingham were later called off. Bedford used the postponement to fit in some extra training and even found time to share this on YouTube:This being the only Championship rugby related activity on offer last weekend, I thought it worthy of inclusion. In the old days, a cancellation would have allowed us to adjourn to the club bar for a drunken afternoon watching the internationals followed by a curry and a few more beers. How times have changed. Finally, the league’s two bottom sides meet when Esher take on London Scottish at Molesey Road on Saturday at 3pm. Esher, whose Chairman of Rugby is John Inverdale, have only recorded one Championship win this term against Rotherham on New Year’s Eve. This could be the clash of the weekend, as both clubs are now guaranteed a place in the relegation play-offs and will be keen to build some form going into stage two.Just to remind you, this is how the table currently stands.last_img read more

first_imgConcussion protocols have come a long way in rugby, but officials got it wrong on Friday night at the Toulouse v Racing Métro Top 14 quarter-final TAGS: Highlight Watch the Fritz incident below – what do you think? Tell us on Twitter @Rugbyworldmag or Facebook Rugby World Magazine FRIDAY NIGHT was a disaster for Guy Noves. The quarter-final home defeat to Racing Métro was bad enough for the reputation of the Toulouse coach, it but it was the sight of him at the dressing room door, ordering his medical staff to send the blooded Florian Fritz back onto the field that called into question the 60-year-old’s judgement.If you missed Fritz’s shocking injury then maybe it was just as well. It was one of the most distressing scenes you’re likely to see on a rugby field. Midway through the first-half the Toulouse centre took a terrible blow to the head in an accidental collision with Racing lock Francois Van der Merwe. As blood pumped from the gaping wound in Fritz’s temple his uncomprehending eyes gazed into the distance, what combat soldiers in the Second World War called the ‘1000-yard stare’.To everyone watching it was clear Fritz had been concussed. It was also apparent that, as the blood coursed down his face, he would not be able to continue. Fritz was led from the field by the Toulouse medical staff but even that proved too much, and he slumped to the turf where he remained for a couple of minutes until, finally, two staff helped him into the changing room.Tackle bag: Fickou, who replaced Fritz for a short while, tackles Racing’s HernándezAnd that was the end of that, or so we assumed. Gael Fickou – no mean replacement – came on in Fritz’s stead and the game continued, though the sight of Fritz’s appalling wound lingered in the memory.But minutes later television pictures showed Noves at the door of the Toulouse dressing room, urging the medical staff to hurry in their work because the 15 minute blood injury time limit was nearly up. Moments later Fritz, the white strapping on his arm stained red, re-entered the arena, and played on till half-time when he was permanently replaced by Fickou. “I had a small KO. I don’t remember everything,” admitted Fritz later.The initial reaction from Toulouse fans was one of admiration with Fritz hailed as a “Guerrier” (warrior) on website message boards for his bravery. In the cold light of day, however, the overriding emotion is one of horror that he was allowed – even encouraged – to return to the field when he was in no fit state. It raises questions about the concussion protocol, which was clearly not followed by the match officials or medical staff in this case, but above all it raises questions about Noves and the duty of care that every rugby coach, no matter the level, owes the players in his charge when they have suffered such an injury.center_img Head case: Fritz was helped off the field, concussed, by medical staff – but was later allowed to play on Jean-Claude Peyrin, president of the FFR medical commission, told Midi Olympique on Monday that what shocked him as much as the doctors’ alleged negligence “was the attitude of Guy Noves, who came looking for (Fritz) in the dressing room in order to get him back before the 15 minutes time limit for blood injuries expired”.Noves’s response to the furore was alarmingly flippant, declaring: “I have been knocked out, played on and was fine; as you can see, I am still standing here”. But perhaps Noves’s reaction should come as no great surprise for this is a man stuck firmly in the past. Last week he adorned the front of the Midi Olympique monthly magazine alongside one of his quotes from the interview inside: “Pro Rugby has become absurd.”Shock doc: Noves’s attitude alarmed Peyrin, President of the FFR medical commissionWell, he would say that, wouldn’t he, seeking to blame the way the sport is run rather than examining his own performance. In the last two seasons Toulouse’s decline has been precipitous. The four times winners of the Heineken Cup haven’t progressed beyond the last eight of the tournament since 2011, and their failure against Racing last week wasn’t a great shock, even though it was the first time in three years that an away side has won a Top 14 quarter-final. In the Top 14 regular season Toulouse won 13 of their 26 matches, drawing two and losing the other 11. Contrast that with the 2011-12 season (the last time they were champions) when they lost just six league matches.In 2010 Toulouse won their fourth European title by beating Biarritz 21-19 at the Stade de France, and who could have imagined that four years later the Basques would be relegated to Pro2 after finishing bottom of the Top 14. Toulouse are too good to be relegated next season but as long as Noves remains in charge they’re going to struggle to remain one of France’s premier clubs. In the past their budget has dwarfed that of most of their rivals – in 2013-14 it was €35.4m, nine million more than Clermont’s  who boasted the second biggest budget – but the huge television deal agreed with Canal Plus earlier in the year will clubs on a more level footing.At its height the empire that Noves constructed at Toulouse was magnificent but in the end all empires must fall.last_img read more

first_imgAmid escalated police presence, Los Angeles-area Episcopal church offers sanctuary to protesters Rector Bath, NC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Jasmine Richards crosses her arms while addressing protesters on Aug. 21, 2020, in Pasadena, California. Photo: Alejandra Molina/Religion News Service[Religion News Service — Pasadena, California] The Rev. Mike Kinman, rector at All Saints Episcopal Church, got the call just before midnight on Aug. 21.It was his son letting him know police had blocked off streets near Pasadena City Hall and All Saints Church. Officers were standing in a line on the City Hall steps in riot gear and demanding that Black Lives Matter protesters leave the encampment they had set up.Protesters have been holding demonstrations since police in Pasadena, just outside Los Angeles, on Aug. 15 shot and killed Anthony McClain, a 32-year-old Black man from Pasadena, according to the Pasadena Star-News. They’re demanding Pasadena police to not only release the names of the officers involved in McClain’s death but also to fire and prosecute them.Kinman decided to join his son on the scene Thursday night, and by the time he got there, protesters had already moved to another nearby location. Police declared their gathering an unlawful assembly and demanded they disperse or be arrested, Kinman said. Kinman helped route protesters out of the area and into the parking lot of All Saints Church. Roadblocks made it difficult for protesters to get to their cars, Kinman said.Protest signs declaring “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund PPD” are taped on City Hall in Pasadena, California, on Aug. 21, 2020. Photo: Alejandra Molina/Religion News ServiceMore than 10 protesters wound up spending the night at All Saints Church after a brief standoff with police ensued outside the church, Kinman said. In video footage, activist and Black Lives Matter leader Andre Henry is heard telling the officers: “Am I leading an armed rebellion that you guys come out in guns and shields?” is a columnist for Religion News Service.)Kinman said the doors of All Saints Church will remain open for protesters whenever they see themselves “in danger from the police.”“This is the job of the church,” Kinman said. “If they’re not safe at City Hall, where are they safe? Well, you’re safe here.”By Saturday, Kinman said, protesters were no longer using All Saints as a home base since they were no longer in danger.Pasadena police Lt. Bill Grisafe told Religion News Service that officers declared the Thursday night gathering an unlawful assembly “to keep City Hall and surrounding area safe and secure.”“There was no force used by officer(s) to disperse the group, and no arrests were made,” Grisafe said.Protesters, however, describe an overwhelming scene that night.Henry said that when they started to pack up again, “the police started to advance on us by making this loud grunt.”“We ran. We fled,” he said.The protesters set up their tents in the enclosed church grounds, next to about 20 people who are homeless and who also sleep on the church campus.Some activists continued to gather at the church on Friday, debriefing and planning to protest at the nearby Old Town Pasadena shopping and restaurant district that evening.Dozens of protesters wound up marching along Colorado Boulevard Friday evening, blocking intersections as diners ate outside restaurants. They chanted, “Black lives, they matter here!” and “Whose streets? Our streets!” and held signs declaring “Cop = Slave-Catcher.”After the police killing, the community is lamenting and gathering peacefully, Kinman added.Instead of sending therapists and social workers, he said, “we send police with riot gear and guns.”A Black Lives Matter banner hangs outside All Saints Church in Pasadena, California, on Aug. 21, 2020. Photo: Alejandra Molina/Religion News ServiceIn a Facebook post, Kinman wrote that he is inspired by the protesters is thankful for All Saints Church.“Grateful for the opportunity to put our values of radical inclusion, courageous justice, joyful spirituality and ethical stewardship into action,” Kinman said.Kinman said the church’s commitment to be a sanctuary church embodies “the sentiment on the banner on our lawn that Black Lives Matter.”This article is republished with permission from Religion News Service.

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Nov. 11 — The Anti-Imperialist meeting of Solidarity for Democracy and against Neoliberalism  (Encuentro Antimperialista de Solidaridad por la Democracia y contra el Neoliberalismo) was held at the Havana Convention Center Nov. 1-3. The conference was attended by more than 1,200 delegates from around the world, with nearly 100 coming from North America. Notable large delegations included movement representatives from Puerto Rico, Argentináa, Brazil and Chile, as well as delegates from as far away as Vietnam and New Zealand. The meeting was opened by Fernando Gonzáles, a “Cuban Five” hero of the Cuban people and president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).   The meeting was closed by President of the Cuban Republic Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez; Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, first secretary of the Communist Party of the Cuban Central Committee; and President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro Moros. Also attending were the Second Cuban Communist Party Secretary José Ramón Machado Ventura and Eseban Lazo, president of the Cuban National Assembly of People’s Power and the Council of State.Powerful addresses were made by a number of delegates, including Glesei Hoffman of the Workers Party of Brazil; Dr. Hannah Bissiw of the National Democratic Congress of Ghana; Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of Saint Vincents and the Grenadines; and a representative of the Communist Party of China. All stressed that coordination and unity against neoliberalism and in defense of democracy were urgently needed. The assembly declared the year 2020 as a year of left counteroffensive. The struggles to Free Lula in Brazil (he was freed Nov. 8) and to win independence for Puerto Rico were also raised. Six breakout sessions took place, including “Solidarity with Cuba and other just causes” held at the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM), “Integration, identities and common struggles” and “Strategic communication and social struggle/decolonization and the culture war.”Gail Walker of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organizationrepresented the U.S. delegation at the front podium and had the honor of introducing the closing plenary speakers.In his closing remarks, President Díaz-Canel said in part, “A special greeting to all who resist and have come to the Cuban capital, which has always been, and will be, a meeting point for those who defend peace and solidarity among peoples. The new generation of Cuban leaders, trained and educated by the historical generation of Fidel and Raúl, are revolutionaries, socialists, faithful to Fidel and Marti, and we will not yield a millimeter in our positions in favor of independence, sovereignty and social justice. And as a link with the peoples who struggle and resist, we will always uphold solidarity as a fundamental principle to which we owe so much.” (, Nov. 4)last_img read more

A key player in ultraright Breitbart media who became the mastermind of Trump’s 2016 election campaign, which got the real-estate magnate into the presidency. After leaving his post as Trump’s “Chief Strategist,” Bannon has been connecting neofascist European parties with neo-Nazi groups in the U.S.On Aug. 20, Bannon and several alleged co-conspirators were arrested for fraud and charged with siphoning money from a supposed charity called “We Build the Wall.” The money they pocketed came from donations to build Donald Trump’s wall against migrants on the southern border.It’s more than ironic that Bannon was arrested while enjoying life on the 150-foot yacht of a fugitive Chinese billionaire, Guo Wengui. There are no walls to keep billionaires out of this country — only poor people.Guo, of course, is no impoverished immigrant. He owns a 9,000-square-foot apartment facing Central Park in New York City. Guo is wanted in People’s China on a bunch of corruption charges, but is hailed here as a “refugee” from communism.Bannon’s arrest may be a sign that Trump isn’t expected to win the next election.

TCU receives 100 more COVID-19 vaccines

June 13, 2021 | shgcmyqk | No Comments

first_imgDrew Mitchell Linkedin Drew Mitchell Timeka Gordon influences America’s future leaders Students elect new SGA vice president printSome TCU students are eager to receive the COVID-19 vaccine while others remain weary. The university received its second round of 100 doses from Moderna last month, Brown-Lupton Health Center Medical Director Dr. Jane Torgerson said.TCU will not require students to take the vaccine but will encourage those eligible to take it.First year pre-business student, Leslie Parra, said she plans on taking the vaccine as soon as she can. “Ever since the beginning of the pandemic, I have witnessed the horrors that such a virus has imposed on our society; therefore, I have been anxiously waiting for a vaccine hoping that it will help our country manage our COVID-19 cases,” Parra said. “I am just trying to do my part in the larger effort to end the pandemic.”This May 4, 2020, file photo provided by the University of Maryland School of Medicine, shows the first patient enrolled in Pfizer’s COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine clinical trial at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. On Monday, Nov. 9, 2020, Pfizer said an early peek at its vaccine data suggests the shots may be 90% effective at preventing COVID-19. (Courtesy of University of Maryland School of Medicine via AP, File)Speculation around the vaccineThere are many speculations around the vaccines. Some say they were too rushed, they will permanently change your DNA, or are more dangerous than COVID-19, according to CNN.Dr. Torgerson said she believes the science behind the vaccines. “The fact that they were developed quickly does not concern me,” she said. “I have received my first dose and will encourage my children to get the vaccine when it is their turn.”First year nursing student, Temi Akande, said she also plans on taking the vaccine because she trusts the good they can do.“If people took 5 minutes to research the COVID-19 vaccine, they would be able to come up with their own reasons to take or not to take the vaccine,” she said. “I plan on taking it because I care enough about my life and the lives of others to do my part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.”First year pre-business accounting student, Se’myris Morris, said she doesn’t plan on taking the vaccine. “At this point, I do not plan on taking the vaccine because I am worried about how it will affect my reproductive system long term,” Morris said. “I do not think there is enough research done to take it yet.”A longing for normal Both Parra and Morris spoke about how the pandemic has affected their college experience. Parra said COVID-19 has negatively impacted her first-year on campus. TCU will not require students to take the Covid-19 vaccine. (Esau Rodriguez Olvera/Staff Photographer)“Because of the pandemic, my class has had very limited opportunities to socialize and establish relationships, and we missed out on many of TCU’s traditions designed to help us integrate into the school,” she said. Morris talked about how the pandemic has changed how she builds relationships. “Before coming to TCU, I was visiting with my sister and I was excited about being on campus, and since COVID-19 has happened a lot of events were canceled and we were forced to build bonds virtually,” she said.No timeline for next shipment Director of Emergency Management Sean Taylor said TCU is following allocation guidance from the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).“We have asked the campus community to register with us and Tarrant County both,” he said. “Our primary goal is to improve immunity to COVID-19 at TCU and in the greater community.”There is a link to register for the COVID-19 vaccine on the TCU website.The university began vaccinating Health Center staff and other campus priority members in December.

These pro-democracy activists have still not been charged. Ali Abdallah, 57, contributes to several Arabic-language media including the daily newspapers al-Khalij and al-Arab. He was arrested yesterday at his home in the Damascus suburbs. He has fallen foul of the Syrian regime and been arrested on several previous occasions. He was imprisoned for six months in 2006 for criticising government policy including in an article in which he characterised the Syrian economy as “weak”.The journalist on 1st December 2007, attended along with Walid Bunni and Mohammad Yasser Al-Iti, the national council of the Damascus Declaration for democratic change.————17.12.2007 – New wave of arrests as journalist Michel Kilo begins his 84th week in prisonReporters Without Borders today condemned a wave of arrests against signatories of a petition calling for “democratic change” in Syria and highlighted the continuing plight of journalist Michel Kilo, serving a three-year jail sentence also for signing a petition.At least 39 signatories of the Damascus Declaration were arrested on 11 December 2007 in several cities in the country. They had met at the start of the month to elect a new executive bureau.The Damascus Declaration was launched in October 2005 and groups several members of political parties which are banned in Syria. Signatories call for “democratic and radical change”.Most of those arrested were released within a few hours, but four members of the bureau, including the president, Fida’a al-Horani, and the secretary Akram al-Bunni – brother of human rights lawyer, Anwar al-Bunni, who was arrested at the same time as Michael Kilo in 2006 – and are still being held in the capital by the state security services. Akram al-Bunni’s arrest came just a few days after he was elected to the opposition National Council of the Damascus Declaration.Kilo, 67, and human rights lawyer, Anwar al-Bunni, 48, were arrested in May 2006 after signing the “Beirut-Damascus, Damascus-Beirut manifesto, which was signed by many intellectuals and human rights activists, urging “respect and consolidation of the sovereignty and independence of Lebanon and Syria in a framework of institutionalised and open relations”. Anwar al-Bunni was sentenced on 24 April 2007, to five years in prison for “spreading false rumours which weaken the nation” while Michel Kilo was sentenced on 13 May 2007, to three years in prison for “undermining national sentiment”. “Michel Kilo and Anwar al-Bunni have been victims of injustice for more than a year. This cannot go on any longer,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“The Syrian regime allows no room for freedom of expression. This latest campaign of arrests against signatories of a document calling on the regime to show more openness is just the latest confirmation of it. Syrians who dare to call for more democracy find themselves in prison after trials which are a mere formality, the outcomes of which are known in advance.”Syria is ranked in 154th place out of 169 countries in Reporters Without Borders 2007 world press freedom index. More than 16 years ago, Reporters Without Borders set up a system of “adoption” of imprisoned journalists and called on international media to support one of them. More than 200 media, journalists’ organisations, press clubs and institutions worldwide now support a colleague and regularly call on the relevant authorities for their release and publicise their cases so they are not forgotten.Michel Kilo is sponsored in this way by: Le Pèlerin (France), Club de la presse Méditerranée 06 (France), Varios Foros (Spain), Asociacion de la Prensa de Almeria (Spain), and Ayuntamiento de Calafell (Spain).
