Lions 2013: Flattery gets you everywhere

first_imgAshley-Cooper may not be deliberately talking to this end, but he can only explain what he knows or what has been made evident to him. Twin this with the continued Lions capitulation at the lineout and the aerial abilities of the Aussie back three and it certainly suits the Wallabies for the Lions to put the ball through O’Driscoll’s hands often.The reactionary thing Warren Gatland could do after the loss to the Brumbies is to retreat back into his shell and play the tactics he is most comfortable with and Australia are prepared for. You need a compliment: Adam Ashley-Cooper has said some charming things about potential opposition BODBy Alan DymockWHEN MIND games start it is hard to know which tact to take. Overuse of saccharine sweet compliments, describe the opposition as clueless or just call everyone cheats? Well, when it comes to Australia versus the British and Irish Lions we could get seven different shades of sledging, particularly after the Brumbies scalped them.However, when Adam Ashley-Cooper – a man that teammate Benn Robinson tells Rugby World was the down-to-earth spitfire who keeps everyone humble – compliments Brian O’Driscoll, it could be out of deep, masculine, mutual respect.Superfreak: Brian O’Driscoll preparing“He’s an absolute freak and I’m looking forward to lining up against him for the first time,” Ashley-Cooper told Press Association.Ashley-Cooper goes on to say that O’Driscoll still has the spritz that saw him fizz through Australian defences 12 years ago and clearly the admiration is there. Nevertheless, lurking in the background is that hint of ulterior motive. When he said: “I haven’t seen a northern hemisphere side be as expansive as these Lions have been for a while,” there is a sense that he is trying to force Lions’ hands for the sake of his Wallabies.“Their ability to spread the ball has been quite impressive. They’ve come out with a very physical and confrontational approach to the start of the game and then have that ability to throw the ball wide.” CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 18: Billy Twelvetrees of the Lions is tackled by Matt Toomua during the International tour match between the ACT Brumbies and the British & Irish Lions at Canberra Stadium on June 18, 2013 in Canberra, Australia. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Expansive and physical? Bearing in mind the Lions created no space at all against the Brumbies, AAC is blowing hot and cold.There are several messages here, but the essence is that he expects and wants the Lions to hit round the corner several times and spin it wide, as Wales do and as the Wallabies have grown accustomed to. Throwing cut-out passes wide earlier and throwing the ball in behind an in-drifting player from the 13 channel to an inside centre when the defence is stacked is also something the Lions have done since game one.Cut down: Billy Twelvetress and his mates got ‘Brumbied’Against the Waratahs the Lions hinted at a drive from the lineout, were it ever thrown accurately. They did the same against the Brumbies on Tuesday, though there were more wayward throws to contend with. The Wallabies now have glimpses of what they should expect from the Lions and if they can cajole them into playing nearer their game plans it helps.

Houston tenants fight racist landlord

first_imgTenants and supporters demand justice.WW photo: Gloria RubacHouston — It sounds like something that would have happened in the 1950s. In November 2012 an apartment complex in Houston posted notices around their property that stated:“We ask you to report to the office immediately every time you see teenagers or adolescents of Afro-American race or any other suspicious people in the property. The Office, Rock Springs Apartments.”When resident Monica Rodriguez saw the notices, she immediately went to the office to complain that the notices were racist. The management was not interested in the complaints of racism, and then notified Rodriguez that her lease would not be renewed when it was up in January.Rodriguez, an activist with Alianza Mexicana, an organization of Mexican immigrants, told others in her group what happened. The Alianza held a press conference near the end of November to expose this racist attack on African Americans and the retaliation against Rodriguez.After the press conference, the management evicted Rodriguez, her spouse and their two small children. When she went to court to appeal the eviction, the judge sided with the owners of the apartments, and the family had to move during the December holidays. Rodriguez appealed to have the $2,000 court fees discounted because of their low income — only $14,000 a year. But the owner told the judge that the family must have more income than they claimed, since they had put up holiday decorations and “she leaves her Christmas lights on longer at night than the other residents.” Rodriguez also lost that appeal.Houston Unido, a grassroots community organization that defends immigrant rights, held a demonstration at the apartments in early January and generated a lot of media coverage as well as interest from residents.Most residents were fearful of speaking with the media, but some did. They told of not having hot water for months and that needed repairs were seldom made. One man said he was fined $60 for leaving his shoes outside his front door overnight. Now residents are being fined if their children play outside without an adult present.Speaking at the demonstration was Martina Rodriguez, an activist with Alianza Mexicana, who was banned from visiting friends at the apartments. Another speaker was a long-time tenant organizer, Lenwood Johnson, a leader of the Free Man’s Neighborhood Association, who said that what the apartment owners did was totally illegal. Also participating were members of the New Black Panther Party and the International Action Center as well as other activists.A formal complaint has been filed with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. A committee at Houston Unido is planning more actions against these racist owners, who live in the wealthy Houston suburbs but own at least a half dozen run-down apartment complexes in working-class and immigrant neighborhoods.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Concern in Limerick over Lough Derg water extraction plan

first_imgThe Parteen basin on Lough Dergby Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Parteen basin on Lough DergPUBLIC meetings are to be held over a plan to extract water from the Shannon to serve Dublin’s future water demand.A preliminary report by Irish Water has identified abstraction of water at Parteen Basin on the southern end of Lough Derg as the preferred option.Green Party General Election candidate for Limerick City, James Gaffney, is calling for public meetings over the proposal to divert water at a rate of hundreds of millions of litres a day to Dublin for domestic, commercial, and industrial consumption.Mr Gaffney described Irish Water’s consultation process as inadequate, and said there were a range of questions that needed answers before the plan could go ahead.“This proposal by Irish Water is by no means a minor one, and they need to fully explain their thinking to the people who will be affected by the plan,” he told the Limerick Post.“They are carrying out an environmental assessment, but we really don’t know what the implications of water extraction will be over ten, twenty or thirty years. We can’t be expected to make a submission while all the facts aren’t known.”According to Irish Water, the existing water supply sources for the Eastern and Midlands regions do not have the capacity to meet demand for an additional 330 million litres of water a day, which increased population and economic growth will generate by 2050. A new source, they say, must be identified.“Irish Water is working to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective solution that can be implemented with minimal environmental impact. Parteen Basin can deliver a sustainable water supply with the least environmental impact while benefiting the widest number of domestic and commercial water customers throughout the region,” a spokeswoman for the water utility explained.However, the River Shannon Protection Alliance (RSPA) maintain that such a proposal would degrade the Shannon as extraction volumes increase and water levels drop.They also claim that Irish Water now see the Shannon as a “cash cow”, and seem intent on milking it for all it’s worth.“The Shannon is a valuable asset. Vital assets and drivers of economic development have gone east in the past, and there is a real possibility that the same can happen to the Shannon. The opportunity to prevent this from happening is in our hands, but we must act to prevent the threat”, an RSPA spokesman told the Limerick Post.
