Craig Burden smashes Schalk Brits not once but twice in Heineken Cup Final

first_imgMonday May 26, 2014 Craig Burden smashes Schalk Brits not once but twice in Heineken Cup Final There were a lot of big tackles that took place over the weekend, but perhaps the most talked about was this by great shot by Toulon hooker Craig Burden against Saracens. There were some questions about it’s legitimacy, but you be the judge. Powerful hooker Burden came to prominence at the Sharks before heading to Europe after finding himself behind the likes of Bismarck Du Plessis and John Smit at both domestic and Test level.He’s been excellent for Toulon, and in the first half on Saturday he got them on the front foot by knocking back one of Saracens’ most potent forces, another South African hooker, Schalk Brits.Brits loves to take the ball at first receiver as he’s an unbelievable playmaker, but in the 18th minute Burden shot out the line and knocked him into next week. Unlike Burden, Brits has played for the Springboks so whether there was extra bite in it because of that or not, a bit of competitive rivalry makes for a good story.Brits stayed down for a while, but play continued before the Saracens hooker got back up, carried the ball once, and even had time for a neat flick between his legs.Less than two minutes after the initial hit, he got the ball again. Predator Burden, who made his provincial debut as a wing, pounced again with another solid shot on Brits. The second hit wasn’t as big but it was a thrilling few minutes.Replays showed that the main tackle was similar to Bismarck Du Plessis’ huge hit on Dan Carter last year, with the tacklers arms both being wrapped around the hapless victim.The similarities don’t end there, as obviously both players are South African and Du Plessis was also accused of being offside. In this case it looks as though Burden wasn’t either, as the ball appeared to be out of the ruck (stand to be corrected) so he didn’t need to be behind the last man’s feet.Whether you think it was legal or not (wrapped, offside line etc), it’s no doubt one of the biggest hits of the season, from one of the strongest, most mobile and underated hookers in world rugby.There were a few more great hits in this match too, so we’ll get a compilation up soon.

Stop U.S. and Canadian support for Honduras’ Narco-Dictatorship!

first_imgThis statement on recent events in Honduras was issued by the Honduras Solidarity Network Oct. 13.Former President Mel Zelaya leads an August protest against Honduran dictator JOH.Honduras’ Narco-Dictatorship installed through a US backed coup must go! For ten years, since the US backed coup in June 2009, a crisis of the rule of law, constitutionality, and democracy has deepened as a blatantly criminal neoliberal dictatorship has sunk its teeth into Honduras. The 2009 coup, subsequent fraudulent elections, official corruption, and impunity and violence by the state against its people are reasons enough to call for an end to the regime. Now the public exposure of the depths of criminal activity and narco-perversion of the entire state of Honduras by the dictatorship confirms what many Hondurans have denounced for years. The details are emerging in a US federal court in New York City, where Tony Hernandez, brother of current Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez (JOH), went on trial starting October 2nd. The testimony against Tony Hernandez in just the first days of the trial includes information that narcotics traffickers, including El Chapo, gave $4 million to the presidential campaigns of National Party politicians Pepe Lobo and Juan Orlando Hernandez. Pepe Lobo was installed in office through the farcical elections of November 2009, which simply aimed to whitewash the illegal coup. JOH took power in 2013 (the year he got the “donation” from El Chapo) after highly questionable elections, and then he declared himself the winner in a blatantly fraudulent election in 2017. Beyond money, evidence being presented shows that Tony Hernandez was also directly involved in murders. All of these crimes were never prosecuted in Honduras. Witnesses who were involved in the crimes have even stated that they knew that any investigations in Honduras would be blocked by the Honduran government. Meanwhile, the Honduran justice system focuses on arrests and imprisonment of people participating in protests against the narco-dictator: small farmers recuperating land and Indigenous communities protecting land and water from mining and other extraction industries. Throughout this post-coup history, both Democratic and Republican administrations in the U.S. and administrations in Canada have upended Honduran democracy and supported dictatorship while diligently advancing the interests of large corporations engaged in the exploitation of labor and resources in Honduras. In so doing they have aided in the theft of the lives, property, freedom, and rights of the Honduran people.The Honduran Solidarity Network supports the demand of the Honduran people and their organizations that JOH immediately leave office and be held accountable for all of the crimes he and his government have committed. Hondurans want a process to renovate democracy and constitutionality that involves the social movements, opposition political parties and society as a whole and works on solutions for the economic, social and political destruction that has taken place since the 2009 coup. This means support for dictatorship from Canada and the US must end now!For more information, visit hondurassolidarity.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Lawyer held for 12 days is latest victim of government harassment of opposition websites

first_img Help by sharing this information March 12, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa News RSF_en Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria News Follow the news on Syria Reporters Without Borders reiterates its condemnation of the government’s behaviour towards certain opposition websites after lawyer and website editor Abdallah Souleiman Ali was detained for 12 days for “persisting in publishing legal and political articles criticising the role of the government.” It was the second time he has been targeted since March.“His arrest was an unacceptable but unfortunately common intimidatory method,” the press freedom organisation said. “The owners of opposition websites are constantly harassed by the Syrian authorities and are often held incommunicado although the constitution guarantees free expression. We urge the government to put a stop to its harassment of Souleiman.”Arrested on 30 July, Souleiman was held for 12 days at the state security department in Damascus because of articles that criticised Prime Minister Muhammad Naji al-Otari and claimed that he headed a “strategic operations” government.Souleiman’s website is called Al Nazaha (http://www.alnazaha.org), which means “Integrity”. Created on 8 August 2005, it focuses mainly on legal and political issues and defends the independence of the judicial system. The company that hosts the site rendered it inaccessible in November 2006 after getting a visit from the Damascus state security department. A hacker attack erased all of the site’s content on 23 June 2007.Access to the site was blocked in October 2007 as a result of a Damascus court decision. Souleiman sued the telecommunications ministry the following month to get the decision rescinded. The complaint was eventually withdrawn.Since March of this year, the Al Nazaha site has been accessible at a new address: http://www.alnazahanews.com. But Souleiman has been repeatedly interrogated and threatened in an attempt to force him to close his site.The Syrian Mirror (http://www.syrian-mirror.com) and Syria Life (http://www.syria-life.com) websites were recently the target of similar threats. An independent news website, Syrian Mirror was blocked on 18 April 2006 after operating for just over three years. Syria Life was blocked on 13 February 2008.Syria is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Internet Enemies”. At least five cyber-dissidents are currently in jail in Syria for expressing their views online, which makes it the Middle East’s most repressive country as regards Internet users. Article 38 of the constitution nonetheless says: “Each citizen has the right to express their views freely to everyone, in writing or by any other means of communication (…) The state guarantees freedom of expression, printing and publication in accordance with the republic’s laws.” to go further Reporters Without Borders reiterates its condemnation of the government’s behaviour towards certain opposition websites after lawyer and website editor Abdallah Souleiman Ali was detained for 12 days for “persisting in publishing legal and political articles criticising the role of the government.” It was the second time he has been targeted since March.

Sexist air controllers ad runs into some turbulence

first_img Previous Article Next Article National Air Traffic Control Services has been forced to apologise to staffafter a controversial recruitment advertisement placed in Loaded magazine wasaccused of being sexist. It features alongside adverts for cannabis seeds, sex lines and sex websitesin this month’s issue of the archetypal lads magazine. Entitled ‘Bird Watching’ it shows a picture of two men leering and askspotential applicants to “imagine the bird you’re talking to is a Boeing747,” adding “you have a rare knack for visualising information in3D”. David Luxton, national secretary of Prospect Union which representscontrollers, has sent a complaint to the NATS chief executive. “Airtraffic controllers are broad minded but this is clearly offensive and veryinsulting, especially to women. It’s so blatantly sexist. Air traffic controlis supposed to be a top class profession – not a top shelf one.” Management at NATS has published a hurried apology on the company intranetafter complaints from employees – 25 per cent of whom are female. A spokesman for NATS said it hoped to recruit 130 new controllers this yearand this was an attempt to attract younger staff. “While the intention was good, the advertisement and where it wasplaced in the magazine was not. We’ve apologised to our staff unreservedlybecause the advert was inappropriate,” he said. The news comes as another blow to the beleaguered service following staffingproblems, a pay dispute, computer failures and a disastrous move to its new£623m base at Swanwick.

A simple country baker

first_imgMany of the stupid announcements by politicians must irritate you as much as they do me. That arch feminist – she from planet Pluto not Venus – Ms Patricia Hewitt, the then Minister for Trade and Industry who, to the best of my knowledge, has never started, run a business or even worked for a commercial company in her life – which is of course the perfect qualification to tell us how to run our companies – came out with such nonsense in a consultation paper that I can only conclude she had spent the previous 24 hours in a pub trying to prove it is good for you to drink for that period.Mind you, she is now Minister for Health, a logical career move after all day and night pub opening; it’s a case, I suppose, of supplying extra customers for the hospitals.She tells us that, if we give working mothers 12 months maternity leave, allow them to transfer part of it to their husbands or live-in partners and allow them to demand flexible working hours, it will be of great benefit to business. What planet does she live on? After all, if these were such great ideas, we in business would have done it years ago and the government would never need to coerce us into doing it; we would all be doing it to improve our bottom line.Naturally, being a politician, she has no idea of costs. All she knows is the public sector with its bloated staffing levels where, if half the staff were away – and they usually are – no one misses them. This government’s idea of consultation is listening to the public sector unions and the Confederation of British Industry, which represents the very large companies and apparently has no interest in the small companies.Next, they say to us: “We are listening.” Then they totally ignore our needs and do exactly what they were going to do anyway. The only solution I can see is for the private sector to give very serious thought before employing ladies of child-bearing age and to be grateful, for once, to the public sector, which can carry on employing them.The downside, even of the public sector employing all the ladies, is that next, they will be coming to us for even more taxes to pay for extra accommodation to build hundreds of crèches to put all their children in and to fund wages for staff to look after them because they want to be seen as caring employers.We uncaring employers, meanwhile, will either be working our staff and ourselves to death to pay the taxes for this madness or will have said, “No way! I will sell out to some other fool who wants to try and support the country.” Again, as always, the snag: even the supply of fools will dry up.Now I will confess that my views are slightly to the right of centre and, at the moment, are not fashionable to the tie-less brigade of modern politicians.However, fear not! One day, two and two will make four again; I lived through the crazy ’50s and mad ’70s, but the day of reckoning came, as it will – without doubt – come again.

A simple country baker

first_imgFlicking through some back issues of British Baker recently, I came across a point made by the editor Sylvia Macdonald. She argued in February that the Government pays little heed to comments made by trade associations with memberships of less than three thousand.This made me think – where does that leave the National Association of Master Bakers? I am a serving member of the NA board and, like every member, I have my own personal views, which in no way reflect those of the board. In my view, if we want to increase membership to include all craft bakers, the subscription rate has to be lower. This would mean, inevitably, that costs would have to be dramatically reduced. The only way this could be achieved would be by reviewing all the services the NA provides and charging members as and when they use them.No longer would it be possible for a service to be provided for the very few, paid for by the vast majority of members who have no need for it.This means probably providing only a few core services such as advice on employment law, keeping members up to date with current legislation and lobbying. In essence, the NA would become a service facilitator rather than provider. Inevitably, this would upset many stalwart long-term members, but I would suggest our businesses have had to change to survive, in many cases dramatically, and the same must go for the NA – change or perish.Like many, I believe the majority of members want the NA to survive as a group run for and by bakers. To do that and have any influence with Government, we must become larger and more inclusive. This inevitably will mean a comparatively low subscription rate. There will be those who say that by providing a high standard of service, members will be willing to pay for them. True, but not enough will – that is a fact of life. Unfortunately, wishful thinking does not increase membership. There could be the creation of a main board representing various food sectors and consisting of working representatives from each trade association. It could meet, say, once or twice a year. This means actual working members, not just the chief executives of each trade group. I have always believed that, unless you are at the coal face, it is easy to lose a sense of perspective. Just as a poor man who becomes rich forgets what it was like to be poor. Unless you have to meet a wage bill year in and year out, it is only too easy to come up with ways to spend money. I am always being told: “You must realise, Tony, running a trade association is different to running a business.” Well, I thought you still had to balance the books and not waste money. And surely you have to provide a service members want.I have often wondered that if a member knows nothing about running a trade association, how do those running one know my problems? Are they not one and the same? Oh well, that’s the price of being simple I suppose!last_img read more
