Jarryd Hayne set to compete with Fiji’s superstars in a bid for an Olympic spot

first_imgMonday May 16, 2016 Jarryd Hayne set to compete with Fiji’s superstars in a bid for an Olympic spot Last night huge news broke as Jarryd Hayne left the NFL, opting to have a crack at the Fiji Sevens team. The former Rugby League star has called time on an NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, citing the chance of playing in the Olympics as too good to refuse. Hayne, whose father is Fijian, played rugby league for Fiji in 2008 and recently presented the 7s team their jerseys at the Sydney Sevens in February.It set the wheels in motion for an unprecedented switch, one that has many scratching their heads, with just one leg of the Sevens World Series left.“I am retiring from the NFL because the Fiji Rugby Sevens team reached out to me about the opportunity to join the team for the upcoming Olympics, and I simply could not pass that chance up,” he said in a statement yesterday.“The Olympics has been something I have admired since I was a little boy, and it is an opportunity I feel very similar to me joining the NFL.”Fiji coach Ben Ryan has confirmed that he has been in talks with Hayne for some time now.“I’ve had a few conversations with Jarryd and followed his career in the NRL in Australia, in the Bati with Fiji, and more recently with the NFL as a running-back for the 49ers,” said Ryan.“He got a taste for sevens when he was with the boys in Sydney and that sowed a few seeds, and that has just got bigger.“I have no promises he is going to make the 12, but we will see how he goes. He will then come into Fijian camp for the Olympic period. It is a huge challenge for Jarryd but if he gets into the squad it is only going to be on form, because he is a blinding rugby player. If he doesn’t make it, is just shows how good this Fijian sevens side is.“It is a no lose situation for me. It is no lose for Jarryd either, he gets himself into the possibility of being a part of this journey, and the boys are all going to learn off him as well.He comes in with an ‘A’ but it is up to him to hang onto that, it’s really exciting and really what the Olympics is all about.”Ryan says that getting the talented squad down to just 12 will be similar to a reality show.“The camp will be like Britain’s Got Talent or the X Factor, boys are going to get chopped until we get down to 12, it will be like a shootout. All these stars are going to be back, everyone will be fighting hard. “I have seen a glimpse of it this week, there is no space to play the competition is so high, it’s always at 110 per cent. We are going to have that for six or seven weeks. I need to get that balance right, but I will stay true to my values and pick on form.”NOT ENOUGH TIMEThere are many who feel like Hayne’s chances are very slim, such as former Australian Sevens coach Michael O’Connor. He says that adapting to the shortened form of rugby is a huge ask, and one he personally doesn’t feel Hayne will be up to, based mainly on time. “A lot of the athletes that [Ryan] has over there, they’ve been in a Sevens program for three or four years and he’s got a squad of 30 or 40 players who, you know, athletically are as good as Jarryd Hayne in my opinion,” O’Connor told ESPN.“But they’ve been conditioned, they know Sevens, they’ve been playing it and they’ve been preparing for it and for someone to come in at this late hour with two months to go before the Olympics… they’re a successful side as it is.“I could understand if it was Brazil or a side that was lacking talent, but they’re the world champions. I just can’t get my head around it.“And that’s the other thing, the game is such an aerobic game. You’ve really got to have an engine on you and you’ve got to go back-to-back. And you’ve got to have that aerobic fitness – the game doesn’t stop. You can’t walk anywhere.“So to pick that up in two months, just that alone, would be very difficult.”We’ll keep an eye on his 7s progress and if it doesn’t work out for him, don’t be surprised if he avoids returning to the NRL and instead finds himself in Europe.

Glass, concrete, wood, and metal serve as the basis for drawing rich associations between space, structure, material, and location. What emerges is a house distinguished by contrasting interplays between heavy and light, load and support.  Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelThe horizontal building structure is thoughtfully embedded into the contours of the hillside; the transition from the interior to the exterior seamless and fluid. The narrow retaining walls bordering the residence and the enveloping yard give shape to a courtyard setting and preserve the palpable feel of the sloping terrain. A set of steps delineates the spatial flow of the interiors from entryway to the living, dining, and kitchen areas, picking up on the character of the descending outdoor terrain. The floor, fireplace, and two exterior load-bearing shear walls are made of concrete. A homogeneous structure, seemingly cast in one piece, encases the living room and serves as the foundation to the overlying wood construction. Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelA solid wood construction consisting of four exterior sheer walls and two transverse walls forms the structure of the overlying story, where the bedrooms are located. The wood construction is left exposed to the interior, while glass and metal surfaces form a weather barrier on the exterior. The wood structure rests on two vertical concrete shear walls, cantilevering to the front and back. It is stabilized by way of cross-bracing steel tension bars on the east- and west-facing windows that hold the two wooden shear walls together. The ceiling on the ground floor is hung front to back by way of tension rods attached to the two transverse steel roof beams.Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelThe concrete construction on the ground level and the wood construction on the upper level interlock at two key junctions: the transverse concrete wall balanced over the fireplace forms the rear wall of the upstairs master bedroom and concrete bathtub; on the opposite side by the staircase, the wood construction runs through to the ground level. Two differing construction methods join in mutual dependency. What emerges is a static balancing act that unleashes an energetic, expansive sense of space and engenders an architectural language rich in associations.Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelProject gallerySee allShow lessAvenue Leclerc Office Building / AZCSelected ProjectsLe Vialenc Residential Block / Atelier du Rouget Simon Teyssou & associésSelected Projects Share Houses Architects: Reuter Raeber Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Riehen, Switzerland 2016 Save this picture!© Eik Frenzel+ 16 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeReuter Raeber ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRiehenSwitzerlandPublished on July 14, 2016Cite: “House in Riehen / Reuter Raeber Architects” 14 Jul 2016.

Interrogation, searches, arrests of journalists and activists in kgb-orchestrated crackdown

first_img “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation RSF_en Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News News News to go furthercenter_img The authorities in Belarus are continuing a crackdown against journalists with a surge in searches, interrogations and arrests. Lawyers defending them are in turn finding themselves victims of retaliation. At the heart of these major operations, launched nearly three weeks ago, is the State Security Committee (KGB). The central role played by the political police in the current repression is evidence of real political regression. All diplomatic means should be used to secure the unconditional release of journalists, activists and politicians who are being detained or imprisoned. The pressure being brought to bear against those who are still at liberty, as well as the lawyers defending them, must cease. European governments must arrive at and act on a common position towards Belarus. These violations of fundamental rights are unacceptable on the part of a member state of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and an immediate neighbour of the European Union. Belsat and Nasha Niva in the firing line The KGB on 6 January 2011, questioned Viktoria Kolchyna a TV journalist working for Polish-based Belsat, who is currently working on a documentary about Belarusian journalists whose deaths have been linked to their work. She was working on the death of prominent journalist Oleg Bebenin, of the opposition group Charter 97 (Khartia-97), which he founded and headed up its news website. In the early hours of 4 January, KGB officers searched the home of Ales Barzenka, a journalist on the same station, seizing his partner’s computer. Spokesman for Belsat, Mikhaïl Yanchuk, said it was connected with an investigation opened by police in the capital Minsk into “rioting” on 19 December 2010. Barzenka himself was questioned the same day. Several other journalists working for the Polish television station have also come under pressure. Last week the premises of Belsat were searched, as was the apartment of journalist Kastiarina Tkachenka. Three staff members, including Tatiana Bublikova, who were arrested covering the protest demonstrations on 19 December 2010, were sentenced to between 10 and 15 days in prison. A photo-journalist on the privately-owned weekly Nasha Niva on 3 January received anonymous telephone threats after she refused to reply to questions from the KGB. The unknown caller told her that she would soon be “very pale, toothless and with a bloodied mouth”. Earlier that day Tatsiana Haurylchuk had gone to the offices of the State Security Committee along with her lawyer. She left the building after the officers refused to allow her lawyer to be present during questioning. A few days previously, on 31 December, four KGB officers had searched her home looking for material linked to post-election demonstrations. Her camera, computer and memory cards were seized. Another photographer on Nasha Niva, Yulia Daraskevich, received similar treatment on the same day.Lawyers and human rights defenders also under pressure The homes of several human rights activists, opposition representatives and the premises of the Belarus Helsinki Committee were searched for any documents relating to the 19 December unrest. More than 20 people, including activists, politicians and journalists, are still being held, on suspicion of having organised the demonstrations in the capital on that day for which they face between three and 15 years in prison. Among them are Natalia Radzina, editor of the opposition website charter97.org, Irina Khalip, correspondent for Russian independent tri-weekly Novaya Gazeta, and wife of Andrei Sannikau, a presidential candidate, who was himself arrested. Also arrested were many members of the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), a partner organisation of Reporters Without Borders: Pavel Seviarinets, one of the leaders of the Christian Democratic Party, Sergei Vozniak, editor of the weekly Tovarich, and Alexander Fiaduta, both involved in the campaign of another presidential candidate, Vladimir Niakliaieu, and Zmitser Bandarinka, one of those heading the election campaign of Andrei Sannikau. The health of Natalia Radzina, who suffered a head injury on 19 December, is a source of concern and some confusion. Her mother, on 30 December, expressed alarm about her daughter’s wellbeing after her latest meeting with her lawyer who told her that her daughter “needed medical tests which she had been denied”, for headaches, bleeding from her ears and pain around her heart. But the lawyer, Mariana Siamechka, went back on what she had said, denying when questioned by Reporters Without Borders, that the journalist had any health problems. She said that she had met Radzina most recently on 29 December and that she had not complained of anything on that occasion. Lawyers who agree to defend activists and journalists suspected of organising the 19 December protests are working under heavy pressure from the justice ministry, which has struck off lawyer Valientyna Busko, suspecting her of taking part in the demonstrations and called on the Minsk bar to take disciplinary action against the council for Sannikau, Pavel Sapelka. The administration accused him of having made “inappropriate remarks about the bar (…) and questioning the actions of the justice ministry (..) saying it was tantamount to putting government pressure on public lawyers”. The justice ministry referred the case to the information ministry, calling on it to investigate what it considered “biased” media coverage of the actions of the lawyers for Anatol Liabedzka, leader of the United Civil Party and Natalia Radzina.

Call for European Union to break with Iran over journalist’s death

first_img July 25, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for European Union to break with Iran over journalist’s death to go further Help by sharing this information Organisation Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 RSF_en News After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists News IranMiddle East – North Africa Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists IranMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders called on the European Union today to break off the “constructive dialogue” it has conducted with Iran since 1998 until officials responsible for the death of Canadian-Iranian photographer Zahra Kazemi earlier this month had been brought to trial.It said it was “unthinkable” that such talks could continue while such a serious crime remained unpunished. It also called on the EU to back Canadian efforts to have Kazemi’s body returned to Canada and for an international commission of enquiry to be set up.The appeal to the EU was made in a letter to the current EU Commission president, Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, to EU external relations commissioner Chris Patten and to Javier Solana, the EU high representative for common foreign and security policy.After official attempts to cover up the cause of Kazemi’s death, Iranian Vice-President Mohamed Ali Abtahi publicly admitted on 16 July that she had been “beaten.” An autopsy and a government commission set up by President Mohammad Khatami was not able to provide full details and the origin of the skull fracture that caused her death remains a mystery.For the past week, Iranian legal officials have strongly opposed further investigation. Kazemi was hastily buried on 22 July in the southern town of Chiraz, making a new autopsy by independent experts more difficult. Canada has repeatedly asked for the body to be repatriated. The case file was handed over on 23 July to a military prosecutor by the hardline Teheran prosecutor Said Mortazavi, who some accuse of being directly responsible for Kazemi’s death. He said errors may have been committed by the intelligence services or security forces but definitely not by his department. Receive email alerts June 9, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Iran News February 25, 2021 Find out more The government commission of enquiry said Mortazavi had personally attended the interrogation of Kazemi shortly after she was arrested. With the military now in charge of the case, any trial will be held in secret without independent observers and without any guarantee of neutrality or impartiality.Kazemi is thought to have been arrested on 23 July as she took photos of Evin prison, in northern Teheran. She was then reportedly beaten and died of her injuries on 11 July.A total of 23 journalists are currently imprisoned in Iran, making it the biggest jail for journalists in the Middle East. Thirteen of them are believed to be held by Mortazavi’s department and by the Guardians of the Revolution, in the same place where Kazemi was interrogated. They are not allowed visits from family or lawyers and are held in very bad conditions. Reporters Without Borders is very worried about their plight. Their families have written to President Khatami saying they have been physically and psychologically tortured. March 18, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Over the past five years, the credit quality of prospective property renters in the U.S. has improved, and applicant incomes in high and middle rent properties stayed relatively the same year-over-year and low rent properties saw an increase in income. Between 2017 and 2018, the RAR index fell two points to a value of 83 points.”For landlords nationwide, it appears the renter quality pool is increasing, which is a promising trend,” said CoreLogic Deputy Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin. “However, it may be because of an increasingly unaffordable rental market, where middle rent applicants are increasingly applying for low rent properties.”Rent-to-income ratios is the highest in high-rent properties, up slightly year-over-year at 23.4% per lease. Meanwhile, the ratio for middle rent properties was 23.6%, and 21.6% for low rent properties,Middle priced rentals saw the biggest increases in prices, increasing by 0.7% year-over-year to an average of $899 per month in 2018. High rent prices increased from $1,520 in 2017 to $1,524 in 2018, while low rent properties remained the same from 2018 to 2018 at $675.By region, the West and Northeast reflect the lowest regional index values for 2018, with an index value of 73 in the West and a value of 85 in the Northeast.The South and Midwest regions show higher index scores than the West and Northeast, and therefore lower credit quality among prospective renters. However, both the South and Midwest also show steady year-over-year decreases, with the South declining eight points since 2014 and the Midwest declining six points during the same period. Compared to the U.S. average index value of 83) the West remains below average, while the Northeast, South and Midwest stay above average.  Print This Post Gauging Risk for Renters Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

One horse, two riders

first_img Email the author Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Published 8:16 pm Friday, September 14, 2012 Book Nook to reopen Now, if it had just been Jimmy and me, we might could have shared that horse and everything would have been all right. We could have taken turns, being in the saddle and riding behind, but our friends “laid” their bicycles down by the side of the road. They wanted to ride that big, black stallion called Lightning.Pop said the boys and girls would have to take turns, which we decided was the same thing as sharing. We didn’t want to do either one.But like Pop said to do, we drew straws to see who would get to ride first, Betty Kay and me or Jimmy and Preston.We got the long straw and got to ride first.What Pop didn’t say anything about was how long we got to ride “first.”We, Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane, saddled up and rode and rode and kept on riding.Jimmy and Preston were waiting their turn on Preston’s front porch. We would wave and laugh every time we went by. They would holler something like, “Stop” or “Get off. It’s our turn.”But we weren’t for sure what they were yelling.On one pass by, Jimmy tried to pull us off by our feet but we giddy-upped Lighting and took off dragging him in the sand until he had to let go.Now, you can only ride a horse so long before your hind end tells you it’s time to get off. Ours spoke to us.We went back to the barn and were taking off the saddle when Jimmy jumped from the barn loft onto my back and hauled me to the ground. We usually settled our differences with our fists but he caught me by surprise and from the back. Before I knew what was happening, Jimmy was punching me in the stomach with both of his balled up fists. Betty Kay jumped on his back and started beating him and Preston jumped on her and started walloping her. We had a free for all.Dora, Pop’s cook, came running out of her house and beat us off each other with a straw broom.Before our noses stopped bleeding, Lightning was being loaded in the cattle truck and the last thing we saw of him was his shiny back end on his way out of town.That was a hard-learned lesson in sharing. In my child’s heart, all I wanted was a horse. A horse of my own.I had to share the horse that my granddaddy, Pop, bought us with my cousin, Jimmy.  Neither of us knew much about sharing nor wanted to participate in it.Pop told us the story about the two women in the Bible that were fighting over a baby and how King Solomon told them he would cut the baby in two and give each one of them half. By Jaine Treadwell One horse, two riders Print Article We decided half of a horse wasn’t much, especially if you got the tail end. We thought we’d give sharing a try.For a while, it worked out all right. Ol’ Betty’s next stop was the glue factory. We rode her in tandem without a saddle or bridle as she moseyed around the chicken yard.Ol’ Betty was not Trigger or Champion so we weren’t exactly the envy of the other children who were flying up and down the dirt road on their shiny Schwinns … until. One day Pop unloaded  “Black Beauty” in the catch pen. It was the prettiest, shiniest horse I had ever seen in my whole life. Pop said Lightning was ours, mine and Jimmy’s to SHARE.As pretty as that horse was, I wouldn’t have cared if Pop had hacked it in half and I’d gotten the tail end. It would have been all mine.But, no. We had to share.Pop bought a saddle and a bridle and a horse blanket for Lightning. I’d never seen such a fine horse all dressed up like that.

View post tag: europe View post tag: Naval View post tag: FREMM Normandie Authorities These trials have allowed the validation of the frigate’s combat system performance before its delivery to the French Navy at the end of 2014.The series of trials for the FREMM Normandie, which has just been completed in the Mediterranean, was principally dedicated to the verification of the vessel’s combat system. To perform these, the frigate was integrated into numerous scenarios, allowing progress in the setting up of its capacities in all areas of warfare.“In total, we performed around fifty trials on the FREMM Normandie, thanks to the active involvement of all the DCNS, French Navy, DGA and OCCAR teams. These trials contribute to the proper integration of the frigate’s different sensors and weapons into the latest-generation SETIS® combat management system developed by DCNS,” indicates Anne Bianchi, Director of the FREMM program.The presence of the frigate in Toulon also allowed the completion of certain trial relating to the vessel’s platform with, as the high point, the first deck landing of the Caïman NH90 helicopter.After a final test performed with the support of the FREMM Aquitaine on Tuesday 24 June, and allowing the verification of the interoperability between the 2 frigates, the Normandie frigate has now sailed to the DCNS site in Lorient. Final finishing work will be carried out on the vessel over the summer before its delivery to the French Navy, expected over the course of the last quarter of 2014.[mappress]Press Release, July 01, 2014; Image: DCNS View post tag: Toulon FREMM Normandie Ends Trials off Toulon July 1, 2014 View post tag: trials View post tag: News by topic View post tag: France View post tag: Navy Share this articlelast_img read more
