Wallabies pick up big win in historic once off Test vs USA in Chicago

first_imgMonday Sep 7, 2015 Wallabies pick up big win in historic once off Test vs USA in Chicago The Wallabies notched up a 47-10 victory over the USA Eagles in their World Cup warm-up match at Soldier Field in Chicago this past weekend. The home trailed by just four points at halftime, but the Wallabies powered through the second half for a big win.Young Sean McMahon, who has been out with injury for a lengthy period, scored his first Test try and produced a man of the match performance, while other tries were scored by Bernard Foley, Nick Phipps, Dean Mumm, Kurtley Beale, Quade Cooper and Taqele Naiyaravoro. The Eagles scored a stunning try through scrumhalf Mike Petri and a lovely Zee Ngwenya run, while the bets from the Wallabies was probably Kurtley Beale’s, that came from way back in their own half.Wallaby skipper on the day, James Slipper, praised the opposition.“It was a good win. We came here to win. We ended up doing that. Proves how good the Eagles are. They came out in that first half and played some really great rugby. They’re going to go far in the World Cup. Credit to them. Both teams showed physicality,” he said.The Wallabies didn’t concede a point in the second half, which will please coach Michael Cheika as they get ready for a tough Pool A at the World Cup. They open their tournament against Fiji on September 23, while the USA face Samoa three days earlier.The tries are below, while longer, US commentary highlights can be viewed on page twoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error USA Rugby , Wallabies Related Articles 117 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Argentina XV run in 13 tries over… 128 WEEKS AGO Ross Geller’s form dissected as Squidge Rugby… 137 WEEKS AGO USA Rugby chase greatness in The Pioneers,… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The threats were made in two email messages signed by the Black Eagles, a branch of the paramilitary alliance known as the United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC), which has a strong presence in Colombia’s northern departments.“Community media such as Ecos de Tiquisio play a very important role in local life in Bolívar and are very popular with the local population,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Black Eagles are using these threats to both intimidate the station’s personnel and undermine their credibility, with the aim of consolidating their own influence in a region wracked by armed violence. We urge the Bolívar departmental authorities to protect Father Gallego and all of the station’s personnel.”The Network of Community Radio Stations of the Mid-Magdalena Region (AREDMAG), of which Ecos de Tiquisio is a member, reported in a 16 April release that death threats had been made against representatives of several regional organisations including Father Gallego in a message signed by Commander Camilo Mora of the Northern Block of the Black Eagles. It referred to them as “military targets”and announced an “annihilation plan” in which they would be “exterminated one by one.”A second email was sent by the same group on 19 April, using insulting language to accuse leaders of civil society, religious and human rights groups of complicity with the leftist guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and National Liberation Army (ELN). The message ended: “ We will begin with you and then we will deal with all the others until no one is left. You sons of bitches, we are going to do you in. For a Colombia without guerrillas.”A meeting was held the same day in Cartagena, the capital of Bolívar, between the president of the department, central government representatives and Catholic church officials to devise a security plan for the threatened individuals and organisations.After the meeting, Father Gallego told journalists that he and the other threatened priests had decided to decline the offer of police protection and opt for “the protection that the people themselves offer us.” The departmental authorities nonetheless said a round table would be organised in May with civil society organisations to analyse the situation and step security measures.

first_imgLinkedin The bogus caller targeted the elderly lady late at nightA FAKE garda conned his way into the home of elderly Limerick lady last Sunday night and made off with a sum of cash in one of the latest scams to hit the city.Gardai in Roxboro are treating the incident as very serious.Sometime around 10pm last Sunday, a man called to a house on Bengal Terrace and told the the elderly woman, who was alone, that he was a member of An Garda Siochana and was investigating a crime.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It is understood that he conned his way in to the house and subsequently made off with a sum of cash.The elderly pensioner was left shaken and confused over the whole episode.Detectives at Roxboro are now warning members of the public over these “bogus callers” and are asking that homeowners exercise caution.Homeowners have been reminded that Garda will identify themselves with proper An garda Siocahna identification.Anyone who may have information on this or similar incidents are asked to contact Roxboro Road Station on 061 214340 or on the garda confidential number on 1800 666 111.

Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. John Costelloe, Sinn Féin. Photo: Cian ReinhardtVOLUNTEERS who respond to people contemplating suicide are operating out the back of their own cars, Limerick city councillors were told at their monthly meeting on Monday.Cllr John Costello (SF) had proposed that the council provide a base for the various suicide patrols who walk the banks of the River Shannon in every kind of weather.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Many years ago, I saw a young girl drown in the river and it has affected me ever since.“Limerick Suicide Watch has 67 members and they are hoping to recruit more. To say these people are the guardians of our riverbanks is an understatement”.The Sinn Féin councillor said that the lease on the premises that serves as the group’s base is about to expire and it was “incumbent on this council to provide a facility for this wonderful group”.City West councillor, James Collins (FF) said that there are a number of suicide patrol groups as well as a land search and recovery group.“They are all volunteers providing an invaluable service in their own time and at their own expense. I met one group and they operate out of the back of their cars.“They have no base, no place to store or dry equipment. Even if was a shared space, we should provide a facility for these groups.”City East councillor, Kieran O’Hanlon (FF) suggested a shared facility with St Michael’s Rowing Club at the former Cleeves factory site.“We are a university city and we have a lot of young students who have tragically taken their own lives,” he said.City North councillor, Frankie Daly (IND) suggested that “something as simple as a converted freight container could be a start and it could be used by all of the groups”.However, Solidarity councillor for City North, Mary Cahillane warned that any interim measure could become a permanent solution.“We have a suicide rate which is double the national average but when the volunteers talk someone down, they need somewhere to bring them.“Not only should the council provide a space but we should also look at providing a full-time counsellor”.Cllr Sean Lynch (FF) said there was nowhere for families to turn when there is a mental health crisis.“We need a centre of excellence here. The only such centre is in Dublin. We need a bigger conversation about this”.City North councillor, John Gilligan suggested that whichever company gets the contract for the planned building works along the river should be told that the provision of a centre for the services was a condition of the contract.Metropolitan Mayor Daniel Butler (FG) said it would be wrong to give the impression that there was nothing in Limerick for mental health.“There are many organisations such as My Mind, Blue Box and Pieta House. What we are talking about here are people in crisis. People are admitted to the psychiatric assessment unit at University Hospital Limerick and they can be there for a week without seeing a psychiatrist. Then they leave and it happens all over again,” he said.

The bench also noted the statement made by the Union Minister before the Lok Sabha on 15th September.Before the Parliament, the Union Minister stated that since April, Indian side had noticed a buildup of troops and armaments by the Chinese side in the border areas adjacent to Eastern Ladakh. In early May, the Chinese side had taken action to hinder the normal, traditional patrolling pattern of our troops in the Galwan Valley area, which resulted in a face-off. “Given the growing friction along the LAC, the Senior Commanders of the two sides in a meeting on June 6 2020agreed on a process of disengagement that involved reciprocal actions. Both sides also agreed to respect and abide by the LAC and not undertake any activity to alter the status quo. However in violation of this the Chinese side created a violent face off on June 15th at Galwan. Our brave soldiers laid down their lives and also inflicted costs including casualties on the Chinese side.”, he added.”The conduct of our armed forces throughout these incidents shows that while they maintained “Sayyam” in the face of provocative actions, they also equally displayed “Shaurya” when required to protect the territorial integrity of India.I would like the House to join me in recognizing the courage and valour of our soldiers, who undergo immense hardship in the most difficult conditions to keep us all safe and secure.”,Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had stated.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

This difference in stipulated age of marriage for men and women is based on on patriarchal stereotypes, has no scientific backing, perpetrates de jure and de facto inequality against women, and goes completely against the global trends, the petitioner states.The plea goes on to highlight the provisions under various legislations which stipulate the age of marriage as being discriminatory:Section 60(1) of the Indian Christian Marriage Act, 1872;Section 3(1)(c) of the Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936; Section 4(c) of the Special Marriage Act, 1954;Section 5(iii) of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955;Section 2(a) of the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006. The petitioner has also elaborated that India’s International Human Rights obligations under the provisions of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (“CEDAW”), which it ratified in 1993, inform the content of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution which obliges state parties  “take all appropriate measures… [t]o modify social and cultural patterns of conduct of men and women, with a view to achieving the elimination of prejudices and customary and all other practices which are based on the idea of inferiority or the superiority of either of the sexes or on stereotyped roles for men and women.”In this context, the petitioner has stated that any provision that perpetrates or reinforces discriminatory stereotypes against a class of persons is manifestly arbitrary and a fortiori violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21.”Differential age limit is based solely on stereotypes. The Law Commission has observed that there exists no scientific basis for such distinction and that differential limit “simply contributes to the stereotype that wives must be younger than their husbands”. Likewise, Committee on Elimination of Discrimination against Women has noted that: “Some countries provide for different ages for marriage for men and women. As such provisions assume incorrectly that women have a different rate of intellectual development from men, or that their stage of physical and intellectual development at marriage is immaterial, these provisions should be abolished. In other countries, the betrothal of girls or undertakings by family members on their behalf is permitted. Such measures contravene not only the Convention, but also women’s right freely to choose her partner.” – Excerpt of Plea by Ashwani Kumar UpadhyayIt is averred that differential limit is de facto unequal as between men-women. It aggravates social inequality, thereby breaching Articles 14,15,21. It is a social reality that women in a married relationship are expected to perform a subordinate role vis-à-vis the husband. Hence, there exists a power imbalance between the husband and wife in most marital relationships. This power imbalance is deeply aggravated by the age differential, because age itself constitutes a hierarchy of power, the plea states.”A younger spouse is therefore expected to respect and be servile to her elder partner, which aggravates the pre-existing gender-based hierarchy in the marital relationship.”It is contended that discriminatory provisions should be read down to equalise minimum age of marriage for both men and women at 21 years in light of the global trends that point in this direction.Thus, stating that since similar petitions are pending in two high courts which are more or less common in nature and have similar factual and legal issues, respondents may face extreme difficulty in effectively conducting the same in different Courts and also, that here is every possibility that different judgments and views may be taken by both high courts & thus it be best that all grounds and contentions are decided by a common judgment by the top court.”For this reason also, all these matters require to be withdrawn from the respective High Courts and be transferred to this Hon’ble Court so that all grounds-contentions can be decided by common judgment in order to ensure uniformity in directions. Moreover, the Judgment by this Hon’ble Court will be binding for all and also save precious time of the judicial system,” the petitioner prays.Alternatively, the petitioner has prayed for a direction to the Central Government to take appropriate steps to remove the anomalies in the minimum age of marriage and make it ‘gender neutral, religion neutral and uniform for all citizens’ in spirit of the Articles 14, 15, 21 and International Conventions.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Neighbor kills man with crossbow while trying to save him from pit bull attack: DA

first_imgcarlballou/iStock(ADAMS, Mass.) — A Massachusetts man was being attacked by two pit bulls when his neighbor grabbed a crossbow and tried to intervene, but apparently struck and killed the man instead, prosecutors said.Investigators believe the neighbor heard a commotion Wednesday afternoon and called the Adams Police Department, officials with the Berkshire County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement Thursday.The neighbor “could hear somebody screaming for help, saying, ‘please shoot the dogs,’” Berkshire County District Attorney Andrea Harrington said at a news conference Thursday.The neighbor grabbed his crossbow and fired, striking one of the pit bulls in the scruff of the neck, Harrington said. The arrow then went through a closed door and hit the victim while he was trying to barricade himself from the dogs, Harrington said.A child was in a nearby room at the time and was unharmed, prosecutors said.Meanwhile, the dogs kept fighting, Harrington said.Police had received multiple 911 calls about the ongoing pit bull attack. Responding officers found the two dogs — which both had a “history of being aggressive” — “engaging in a volatile confrontation,” according to prosecutors.The animals then “came at” the officers, Harrington said, so the police used their weapons “to neutralize” them, prosecutors said. Both dogs were killed by police, prosecutors said.The death of the resident — identified as 27-year-old Joshua Jadusingh — appears accidental, prosecutors said.The neighbor is cooperating with police and no charges are expected, prosecutors said.Both dogs — adult males — lived at the victim’s home, prosecutors said.The neighbor has a license for the crossbow, which he uses for hunting, said Harrington, who called the man a good Samaritan. He’s “very distraught” and was good friends with the victim, she added.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Dogs have their day in office

first_imgStress levels will be lowered today for those staff taking advantage of TakeYour Dog to Work Day. The event, organised by the Blue Cross animal charity, will see staff fromfirms such as BT, NatWest, Eurostar, HSBC and Lloyds TSB taking dogs to work toraise funds for the organisation. Rachel Bower, HR director of the Blue Cross, said, “Research shows thatworkers do benefit from being in the company of animals. It calms people downand lowers blood pressure.” Several members of staff at the Blue Cross take their dogs to work each dayand she thinks it can lead to an increase work levels. “Most people who walk their dogs at lunchtime say it improves theirproductivity in the afternoon,” Bower said. “It is a good opportunity for people to get away from their desks andget some fresh air.” Last year, an NOP study into GPs’ attitudes to pet ownership found that 82per cent of doctors think stress levels are reduced by having a pet.
