France are top seeds as New Zealand go out of Women’s Rugby World Cup

first_imgSunday Aug 10, 2014 France are top seeds as New Zealand go out of Women’s Rugby World Cup The final day of pool play at the Women’s Rugby World Cup decided the four sides that will go through to the semi-finals in Paris on Wednesday, August 13th. Ireland will play in their first ever semi-final, against England, while hosts France take on Canada.The French side beat Australia 17-3 to finish top of Pool C, while Ireland beat Kazakhstan to top Pool B. That, combined with England and Canada’s 13-13 draw, meant that for the first time in the tournament’s history, New Zealand will not take place in the semi-finals.“It’s hugely gutting and we’re all down about it. But at the end of the day, we had our fate in our hands in the game against Ireland and we didn’t nail that and we didn’t play well enough that day,” said Black Ferns coach Brian Evans.“We knew the result of the Canada v England game so it was pretty hard. We didn’t tell the players unless they asked, so some of them knew and full credit to them because they performed really, really well even knowing that we were out. But the rest of the team we left it ’til afterwards.”England qualified as top of Pool A, with Canada as the best runners up.“Ireland are a side we know extremely well from playing them in the Six Nations so this is a clash we are really excited about. They play a fast, expansive game and we have now got three days to prepare for this semi-final,” said England coach Gary Street. “With hosts France and Canada into the other semi-finals, I think this is a really exciting line-up for the knock out stages of the Rugby World Cup.”View the highlights from all the other matches on page two of this post    ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In a very narrow assembled building plot the house tries to formulate its architectural idea from the barriers and disadvantages of the split. Only by the self-conscious positioning to the access road in the south and the distance indulgence granted by a neighbor, the densification of the plot was ever possible. On this strip of land which is steeply sloping north to the Lohbach (small stream), from then on an elongated rectangular blank develops over 3 stories vertically into the air.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterOn the ground floor a small studio is enrolled, which uses the few level surface of the exterior area. Cooking and eating is a floor above. There you sit comfortably protected and privatized either at a table inside or in a small loggia.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterTopmost are the living room and fireplace under a sheltering, uniting gabled roof. Strategically placed openings stage different views to the lake, the river and back to the village. The fenestration of the house generates a pleasant pulse of light and darker areas. The opening portion of the façade, deeming appropriate, prevents the spatial flow out of the interior. The windows communicate in a proven way to the outside and privatize at the same time life in the house in a pleasant way.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe house has a massive core zone of concrete. Outwardly to wall and roof completes a wooden mantle from vertical wood elements. The classic theme of a solid characterful center of the house is operated, which includes the stove, the kitchen and the bathrooms. Opposite, towards the windows it becomes continuous wooden, more tender, lighter. The spatial compression of the interior widens softly, with differentiated transitions, to the exterior.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterOutdoor the facade with its black coloring engages in the immediate vicinity to still prevailing images of sunburned agricultural huts. Because of the pushing back of agricultural use in Vorarlberg’s Rhine Valley, too few of these relics have remained.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterProject gallerySee allShow lessSociety of Architectural Historians 70th Annual International ConferenceConferenceMAX IV / Snøhetta + FOJAB arkitekterSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Lochau, Austria 2016 Austria Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY”center_img ArchDaily Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House Bäumle / Bernardo BaderSave this projectSaveHouse Bäumle / Bernardo Bader “COPY” Architects: Bernardo Bader Architekten Area Area of this architecture project Year:  House Bäumle / Bernardo Bader CopyAbout this officeBernardo Bader ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLochauAustriaPublished on August 26, 2016Cite: “House Bäumle / Bernardo Bader” 26 Aug 2016.

The Cuban Five: 16 years of unjust imprisonment

first_imgGerardo Hernández Nordelo, Antonio Guerrero Rodríguez, Fernando González Llort, Ramón Labañino Salazar, and Rene González Sehewert.People of conscience gathered Sept. 12 in cities across the country and the world to commemorate the 16th year since Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González — known collectively as the Cuban Five — were arrested in Miami.Several years before their arrest in 1998, these five intelligence officers ­began a ­mission to infiltrate and monitor anti-Cuban terrorist organizations in the Miami area. They passed on their findings, including plots against Cuba, to the Cuban authorities, who in turn informed the FBI. But instead of prosecuting the right-wing groups, the FBI arrested the five.For 17 months following their arrest, the five were held in isolation, as 26 charges were brought against them, including conspiracy to commit espionage and conspiracy to commit murder. The latter charge was only brought against Hernández nine months after his arrest, in an atmosphere of intense media pressure for his alleged involvement in the 1996 shooting down of a “Brothers to the Rescue” plane over Cuba.Between 2000 and 2001, the Five were tried in Miami, despite attempts to have the venue changed to a less biased and hostile environment. It was subsequently discovered that the U.S. government was secretly paying journalists in Miami while they covered the trial, which helped to create an atmosphere of pressure that contributed to the Five’s conviction and harsh sentencing.The Five’s attorneys and the international movement for their freedom scored an important legal and political victory in 2005, when a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the convictions and ordered a new trial, citing the prejudicial atmosphere of the trial as well as the U.S. government’s misconduct. This victory did not last, however. In response to the prosecution’s appeal, the full court agreed to re-hear the case, and exactly one year after the Cuban Five’s convictions were overturned, they were reinstated. In 2009, the Supreme Court refused to review the case, exhausting nearly all judicial avenues for their release.Solidarity can free the FiveCurrently, two of the Five are free in Cuba; three are still imprisoned in the U.S. René González endured 13 years in prison, completing his sentence in 2011, and was allowed to return to Cuba in 2013. Fernando González was imprisoned 15 years and returned to Cuba in February. Guerrero, Labañino and Hernández remain unjustly incarcerated. Guerrero’s sentence was reduced in 2009 from life to 21 years, 10 months; if he completes his sentence, he will be released in 2017. Labañino’s sentence was also reduced, from life to 30 years, with a release date in 2024. Gerardo Hernández’s sentence was not reduced, and his situation is the most dire, as he is serving two life terms plus 15 years.The only possible legal solution at this point are habeas corpus appeals, based mostly on the new evidence of U.S. government misconduct in paying Miami journalists before, during and after the trial. Although the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear the case, appeals of a future habeas decision could wind their way to the Supreme Court, but, given the makeup of federal courts in the U.S., a dismissal is not likely, and there is no time frame for such a decision.What has been said from the beginning of this case — and continues to be emphasized by the Cuban people, the Five, their families and their supporters all over the globe — is that this is a political case determined by political factors. The Cuban Five are political prisoners, and as has been shown by historical movements to free political prisoners, the solution will only be motivated by political calculations.One of these calculations could have to do with Alan Gross, the U.S. Agency for International Development subcontractor arrested in 2009 in Havana. He was there to illegally distribute telecommunications equipment as part of one of the U.S. government’s so-called “Cuba democracy” programs aimed at subverting the revolution. He is currently serving a 15-year sentence, and there has been talk on both the U.S. and Cuban sides of the possibility of an exchange of Gross for the remaining members of the Five. But just as the Five’s supporters are not holding their breath for a victory in the courts, neither can we wait for a deal from the U.S. government, which has continually rejected gestures of goodwill from Cuba.That is why the Cubans attach so much importance to solidarity, especially coming from the people of the U.S. It is this solidarity, in demanding freedom for Guerrero, Labañino and Hernández, that, if strong enough, might achieve justice. Free all the Cuban Five!Want to know more about the case of the Cuban Five?

Independent bi-weekly Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta financially squeezed

first_img RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” June 29, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent bi-weekly Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta financially squeezed – – – – – – – – -Swinging fine threatens to bankrupt an independent bi-weekly Organisation News News “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more According to Khalip, Mar’s aim was to extract money from the Belarus authorities in exchange for a promise of a favourable report on the president in a foreign media at a time when Minsk government is coming under growing criticism from the international community. Khalip said that Lukashenko was the third head of state to be set up in this way.During the trial, the judge rejected Khalip’s request to question the US ambassador in Belarus about whether Arkady Mar was really the editor of Russkaya Amerika. Mar, who initially claimed one million dollars in damages after the article appeared, did not deign to attend the trial.This is not the first time the Belarus authorities had tried to crush BDG: In January 2004, Belpochta, the Belarus postal service that delivers newspapers to subscribers throughout the country, and the state distributor Belsayuzdruk, cancelled their contract with the bi-weekly for 2004, forcing it to be printed abroad. The information minister also suspended publication for three months on 28 May 2003 following legal action for defaming Lukashenko. Follow the news on Belarus News to go furthercenter_img May 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia May 28, 2021 Find out more On 22 February BDG carried a sarcastic article by-lined Irina Khalip and headlined, “The inhabitants of Oklahoma won’t find out anything about Lukashenko” followed by a letter from a letter from Valery Tarasov, editor of Russkaya Amerika in Oklahoma, stating that no member of staff had interviewed the president of Belarus.Khalip maintains that the legal case was orchestrated behind the scenes by the chairman of the National Assembly’s permanent committee, Mikhail Charhinets, and deputy director for ideology in the presidential office, Aleh Pralyaskowski.”These fines inflicted on an editor and her newspaper for comments on a so-called interview with President Lukashenko are utterly disproportionate,” said Reporters Without Borders. “Once again the Belarus authorities show they will not tolerate dissident voices in the country by attempting to bankrupt one of the few independent newspapers. The executive should not exploit the Belarus court system. It is a scandalous travesty of justice inconceivable in a democratic country.” Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown 13 April 2005Reporters Without Borders voiced dismay after a Minsk court imposed a fine of nearly 3,500 euros on Irina Khalip, deputy editor of independent bi-weekly Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta (BDG), and a swinging fine against the paper itself of some 17,800 euros in damages for defamation.Khalip was brought before the district court in Kastrychnitski on 11 April 2005 for defaming a certain Arkady Mar, described as editor of US-based newspaper Russkaya Amerika. The complainant Mar apparently interviewed President Alexander Lukashenko (picture) on 14 February 2005, promising him around a dozen positive pages about him personally in a forthcoming issue. A court in Minsk upheld a sentence against Irina Khalip, editor of independent bi-weekly Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta (BDG), and her newspaper of respectively 4,500 dollars and 23,000 dollars in damages on 27 June. Arkady Amar, editor of the New-York based Russkaya Amerika had laid a complaint after the newspaper carried a sarcastic article on 22 February in which Khalip accused the American journalist of intended to extort money from the authorities in Minsk in exchange for a special 12-page issue eulogising President Alexander Lukashenko.The Supreme Court in Kastrychnitski also confirmed on 27 June a warning from the information ministry to BDG on 13 April for violation of Article 5 of the media law. The bi-weekly carried an article on 3 March about a court case headlined “The virtual war between a granddaughter and her grandmother” without obtaining prior permission from the judge.The authorities will have the right to close BDG if the newspaper receives a further warning this year.

But doesn’t anyone, other than me, recognize our daughters and our sons are being set up to kill, wipe away for good, what was once a proud and honorable culture.The DNA test proving which of the multitude of men Maury’s wronged female guest slept with is actually the “baby daddy” is a foot-stomping audience-yelling pleaser.The parading of false fingernails and eyelashes and too much store-bought Chinese hair twisted into various styles coupled with inappropriate wardrobe choices is figuratively killing our young black daughters.Not only do Black Lives Matter, but because our lives are made up of pride, culture and respect for ourselves, we don’t matter once we’ve lost hold of who we are.The police are killing our black sons, our black brothers, and our black male friends. The rallying cry is Black Lives Matter.Maury Povich is providing a viewing platform for our young daughters and our young sons of color to degrade themselves and at the same time sending a message to others that a valueless lifestyle will get them their 15 minutes of fame.Where are the protesters outside the Rich Forum Theater in Stamford CT where the show is taped? Where are the bullhorns declaring Maury is killing our young people?Why haven’t the stage doors to the studio been blocked to keep the sex-craved young women from entering and to confront the multiple baby-daddy contestantsIf the movement Black Lives Matter really believes our lives matter, they’ll put Maury in the unemployment line while he shops around for another TV show.
