Seru Rabeni crunching tackle on Ireland’s Fergus McFadden

first_imgTuesday Jun 8, 2010 Seru Rabeni crunching tackle on Ireland’s Fergus McFadden Irelands Fergus McFadden will miss their tour of Australasia after he broke his jaw against the Barbarians following this huge tackle by Seru Rabeni. The Ireland squad was announced today, with McFadden just one of the many injured players. The match against the Barbarians, which Ireland lost 29-23, took its toll as Irelands depleted squad took another knock in a game that was more physical than free flowing. Powerfully built Fijian centre Rabeni set the tone early on as he smashed McFadden in a head-on tackle which rocked the Irishman backwards and fractured his jaw. He played on but will be sidelined for up to eight weeks, which rules him out for selection to travel to New Zealand and Australia, along with Paul OConnell, Keith Earls, Stephen Ferris, Rory Best, Kevin McLaughlin, Luke Fitzgerald, and Denis Leamy. Jerry Flannery and Shane Horgan are also out, but might join the tour later. So far its not looking good for the Irish, who have not beaten the All Blacks in 22 attempts, with New Zealand winning 21 and them drawing once. Captain Brian ODriscoll puts that down to the rugby culture in New Zealand, with it being the national sport. “We’ve got three or four sports before rugby in our country so it’s difficult when you don’t have the same numbers playing as they do here. We play a number of different sports – Gaelic football, soccer and hurling,” ODriscoll said at a press conference. “And then you lose a number of players to those codes and then with the 120 odd professionals in our country it’s not quite the same numbers to choose from.” New Zealand have 150 full time professional playing in the Super 14, which isnt all that different, but if you look at the senior players in each country, Ireland has 11 500 while New Zealand has over 28 000. ODriscoll did end with an important point though. “At the same time, it is 15 against 15 in the weekend, so you have to treat it as much.” This clip was requested by a few who wanted to watch it again. Fiji probably could have done with an imposing figure such as Rabeni when they played Australia on the weekend. Time: 01:34 Ireland Team to play New Zealand: 15-Robert Kearney, 14-Tommy Bowe, 13-Brian O’Driscoll (captain), 12-Gordon D’Arcy, 11-Andrew Trimble, 10-Ronan O’Gara, 9-Tomas O’Leary; 8-Jamie Heaslip, 7-David Wallace, 6-John Muldoon, 5-Mick O’Driscoll, 4-Donncha O’Callaghan, 3-John Hayes, 2-Sean Cronin, 1-Cian Healy. Replacements: 16-John Fogarty, 17-Tony Buckley, 18-Dan Tuohy, 19-Shane Jennings, 20-Eoin Reddan, 21-Jonathan Sexton, 22-Geordan Murphy.

HWKN + Handel Architects Break Ground on New Jersey’s Tallest …

first_img “COPY” Save this picture!© Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) + Handel ArchitectsWritten by Karissa Rosenfield Share HWKN + Handel Architects Break Ground on New Jersey’s Tallest Building ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyJersey City’s Journal Square will soon reach new heights, as Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) and Handel Architects have broken ground on what will be the tallest building in New Jersey: Journal Squared. The transit-oriented urban renewal project will be completed in three phases; the first, which will add 540 residential units to the area, is planned for completion in mid-2016. Once the 2.3 million square foot project is complete, three metal panel clad towers will dominated the skyline, ultimately totaling in 1,840 units and reaching up to 70 stories. In attempt to relate to the lower density neighborhood in which surrounds the site, the footprint of Journal Squared will “touch the ground lightly as its mass morphs into smaller units.” Programs, such as retail, restaurants and lobbies, will activate its base, while acres of land previously devoted to surface parking and station loading will be transformed into a “tree-filled plaza” that can host a range of community events. From farmer’s markets to bicycle parking and evening film projections, these events will take place along a pathway of low lying stairs, which will gently slope down to connect with the adjacent Journal Square PATH stop.

Thousands in Ukraine protest Kiev regime

first_imgMass rally in Kharkiv against right-wing junta.Photo: BorotbaAs reported by the Union Borotba (Struggle), a mass protest took place on the March 8 International Women’s Day holiday in Kharkiv city center in the eastern Ukraine. Many of the thousands carried red flags and gathered near the monument to Lenin, “which we managed to protect from the Nazis during recent rallies.”Borotba describes itself as representing four or five anti-capitalist and anti-racist groups, including former members of the youth organization of the Communist Party of Ukraine.Participants denounced the new Kiev regime as representing a collaboration of the oligarchs and Nazis who, unable to cope with the socioeconomic crisis looming in Ukraine, are trying to dump the costs onto the majority of working people.The speakers also opposed war within Ukraine, arguing that workers in western Ukraine are not their enemies. They attacked the Kiev right-wing junta for trying to “bang their heads” against the people living in the southeast of the country.Borotba reported that the Kiev regime had sent political police to Kharkiv who tried to intimidate printers from printing leaflets against the coup “government.” They were printed anyway.For more information on the protest or on the Borotba program, see a longer article online at or the English section of thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF calls for an end to social media ban in Kashmir

first_img RSF_en Organisation IndiaAsia – Pacific IndiaAsia – Pacific News June 10, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Indian authorities to restore access to social media platforms in Kashmir, blocked since bloody protests in the region last month, and urges an end to threats against journalists and citizen-journalists. Help by sharing this information March 3, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more to go further Receive email alertscenter_img May 19, 2017 – Updated on August 23, 2019 RSF calls for an end to social media ban in Kashmir In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival News Follow the news on India The government banned 22 social media sites on 26 April, including Facebook and Twitter, saying they were being used to incite violence.Since 8 April, eight people have been killed and more than 80 injured in scuffles between police and protesters. Against this background of widespread violence, journalists are often targeted. Our sources report that during one clash, a police officer told a journalist to stop filming or “I will break your bones and your cameras”.Another journalist who was threatened with a gun said: “This is what they do with media personnel; it shows the sort of impunity police exercises in our state.”A third added: “As I took out my phone to capture the scene, a cop who was firing aerial shots charged towards me, asking me to not click any photographs or else he will shoot me down just there. Shocked at the sudden attack on me for discharging my professional duties, I handed over my phone to the cop.”Preventing journalists from reporting on events is not enough for the Indian authorities, who regularly cut Internet access and have done so since early April. Internet communications have been cut 28 times in five years, including a five-month blackout in 2016 after the death of separatist military commander, Burhan Wani.The government has taken it to a new level this year. April was a particularly worrying time for freedom of information. On 8 April Internet access was cut for four days after a demonstration in which several people were killed.Ten days later there were violent clashes again between student demonstrators and police, in which water cannon and tear gas were used and stones were thrown. Sixty-five students were injured.After the protests, the government blocked the 3G and 4G phone networks and banned 22 social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter, for a month. According to a government statement, social media were being “misused” by “elements inimical to public order and tranquillity”.The order said: “… Continued misuse of social networking sites and instant messaging services is likely to be detrimental to the interests of peace and tranquillity in the state.”The Indian government and its police force remain a threat to basic freedoms in the region. In the past year, violence against journalists has been a cause of concern to press freedom organizations. In July last year, RSF condemned attacks on two journalists Muneeb Ul Islam and Mir Javid.India is ranked 136th of 180 countries in the 2017 World Press Freedom Index, two places lower than in 2016. This relatively minor fall can be explained by a reduction in the number of journalists’ deaths, while the level of threats and physical violence remains indisputably high.

Reporter gunned down in Veracruz while under state protection

first_img News July 22, 2016 Reporter gunned down in Veracruz while under state protection Tamayo, who worked for two dailies, Al Calor Politico and Piñero de la Cuenca, was shot by two unidentified gunmen outside his home in front of his wife and two children. He left Tierra Blanca for the neighbouring state of Oaxaca on 25 January, after being threatened, and was subsequently placed under the protection of the Commission for the Attention and Protection of Journalists of Veracruz, which moved him to the northwestern city of Tijuana. After several months, he decided to return to Tierra Blanca, where he continued to receive Veracruz state protection. This consisted of a police patrol car that drove past his home from time to time. Tamayo’s family said the gunmen had no problem getting away although a police car was only ten metres away at the time. The police took no action aside from delaying the arrival of an ambulance by twice giving the wrong address to emergency services. “We urge the authorities to carry out an exhaustive investigation into Pedro Tamayo’s death and to prioritize the probable link to his journalistic work,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America’s desk “The level of violence against the media in Mexico, and especially in Veracruz, is overwhelming. Journalists are killed even when they are under state protection. Under these circumstances, how is it possible for reporters to continue covering sensitive local stories?” Tamayo covered local crime-related stories and kept a Facebook page called En la linea de fuego, los riesgos de la noticia (In the line of fire, the risks of reporting). He was the third journalist to be murdered in Veracruz this year. The previous victims were Anabel Flores in February and Manuel Torres González in May. When a suspect was arrested three months after Flores’ murder, the state prosecutor confirmed that she had been killed in connection with her reporting, which had angered a local criminal organization, he said. Veracruz is regarded as Mexico’s most dangerous state for journalists, with at least 17 murdered there since 2010. Mexico is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

What Would Housing Finance Reform Look Like Under Clinton?

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / What Would Housing Finance Reform Look Like Under Clinton? Tagged with: Gene Sperling GSE Reform Hillary Clinton Housing Finance Policy The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: CFPB Plans Further Servicing Rules Updates Next: Counsel’s Corner: Reversal of the “Free House” Decision Hillary ClintonThe possibility of Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic nomination for the presidency is becoming more of a likelihood and GSE reform has become more and more of a hot button topic as of late.A few months ago, Clinton laid out her plan to provide “a fair shot at homeownership” for everyone, but has not spoken on the possibility of GSE reform—nor have any of the presidential candidates. The closest they have come was earlier this week when presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump said that in a couple of weeks he would overhaul the controversial Dodd-Frank Act if he is elected.Clinton may have indirectly commented on a plan for GSE reform with the hiring of Gene Sperling, who was Director of the National Economic Council under Clinton’s husband and Obama and also served as Counselor to former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, as her top economic adviser. Sperling and noted economists Jim Parrott, Lewis Ranieri, Mark Zandi, and Barry Zigas in March authored a white paper for Urban Institute titled “A More Promising Road to GSE Reform” in which they not only proposed to merge Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into one government entity, but they highlighted the urgency of the situation, saying that the FHFA is helping Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac “tread water” and that “the situation is not healthy.” They insisted, “Let’s not wait until the next crisis” for GSE reform.Gene SperlingIn that paper, the authors contend that a government corporation titled the National Mortgage Reinsurance Corporation (NMRC) would replace Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and would perform the same functions as the GSEs do currently—it would purchase conforming single-family and multi-family mortgages and issue securities backing the loans through a single issuing platform operated by the NMRC—but unlike the GSEs, would be required to transfer all non-catastrophic debt risk on the securities it issues to a broad range of private entities.Perhaps the most important difference between the NMRC and the current GSEs is that the NMRC “would be motivated neither by profit nor market share, but by a mandate to balance broad access to credit with the safety and soundness of the mortgage market.”The plan offered by Sperling and his co-authors is similar to a plan offered earlier by Senators Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) when the two were, respectively, Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Banking Committee. That plan included a government backstop for any catastrophic losses the mortgage industry might incur.There is speculation that if Clinton is elected, she would likely tackle GSE reform at some point during her first 18 months in office. The hiring of Sperling as a top economic adviser would seem to indicate that she would share his views on housing policy reform.
