Eben Etzebeth in hot water after making contact with Greig Laidlaw’s eyes

first_imgTuesday Nov 20, 2012 Eben Etzebeth in hot water after making contact with Greig Laidlaw’s eyes Lock Eben Etzebeth has been cited following the Springboks’ 21-10 victory over Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday. The IRB disciplinary hearing was due to take place today but we’re still waiting for the outcome. Etzebeth has played a pivotal role in not only the Bok lineout success, but their strong forward play in general. If suspended, his loss will be a major blow ahead of the England game at Twickenham.He has been cited by independant citing commissioner Alan Mansell of England.The citing arises after he is alledged to have made contact with the “eye of eye area” of Scotland number ten Greig Laidlaw in the second half of the Murrayfield Test.If deemed to be guilty, Etzebeth will face a lengthy ban that would cause a major disruption to the Springbok forwards, as well as further tarnish his reputation. The 21 year-old was recenty suspended for what was ruled to be a ‘head butt’ on Nathan Sharpe.He has been cited under Law 10.4(m): ‘Acts contrary to good sportsmanship. A player must not do anything that is against the spirit of good sportsmanship in the playing enclosure.’ The IRB’s recommended sanction for eye-contact is a low entry point of 12 weeks, and a max of three years.Coach Heyneke Meyer said that he couldn’t comment on the incident as the case was still under way, but that they had heard mutterings about a citing before it was officially announced, so already had a legal team putting together their defence.Below is a clip of the incident. It looks as though he pulled his hand away as soon as he realised where it was, but any contact with the eye will always going to get you in hot water.On a positive note, the video starts with a great tackle. *UPDATE: Etzebeth has been found not guilty and is free to play against EnglandADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Newton Knight– abolitionist guerrilla leader in Mississippi

first_imgA hidden history of the Civil WarEver hear of the First Alabama Cavalry, or the name Newton Knight? Not likely. The capitalist media have always promoted stories of “former Confederate soldiers” who loyally served the Confederacy, loved Gen. Robert E. Lee, had no issue with slavery and so on. But there is another story, a hidden history, of poor white opposition to the Confederacy and to slavery.Newton KnightNewton Knight was a poor white farmer who fought the Confederacy with all his might. The First Alabama Cavalry was an anti-slavery pro-Union cavalry, mostly white but also Black, about 2,000 in total, whose members fought the Confederacy and eventually were escorts for Gen. Sherman during his historic march through Georgia in 1864.By far the greatest opposition to slavery came from the enslaved themselves, who always had escape in mind, aided both the Union army and Confederate deserters, fought for the right to fight the Confederacy, and heroically struggled for their freedom at every turn. But there was also significant opposition to the Confederacy from poor whites in every slave state.There is no better example than Knight, the leader of a guerilla group that fought the Confederacy and declared the “Free State of Jones” in Jones County, Miss. In 1921, Knight, aged 84 and living in obscurity, called on Meigs Frost, a reporter for the New Orleans Item, to tell his story and “get the true facts about Jones County during the war.” His life story was recorded in “The State of Jones” by Sally Jefferson and John Stauffer. (Doubleday, 2009)Mississippi, a land of large plantations and small farms, was the largest cotton-producing state in the South — cotton produced by the backbreaking forced labor of enslaved Africans. It was a land of rich, slave-owning aristocrats, 500,000 enslaved people, and poor white farmers.Jones County contained some of the poorest soil and poorest farmers in the state. It also had no sympathy for the slave owners. In 1861, the vote in Jones County was overwhelmingly for the anti-secession candidate. But the delegates in Jackson, Miss., represented only the powerful, not the popular, and Mississippi was the second state to secede. Many suspected of Union sympathies were lynched. It was a reign of terror.Knight, well known for his anti-slavery views, joined the Confederate army under threat of arrest and served as a hospital orderly, deserting soon after. He hid out in the swamps of northern Mississippi, learning what life was like for a runaway slave, and that the enslaved people aided Confederate deserters. He wasn’t captured without a fight. Manacled, flogged and taken to prison, Knight was given a choice: fight for the Confederacy or face a firing squad. But it wasn’t long after that that he deserted again, after Vicksburg, Miss., fell to the Union.This time, Knight found company with large bands of fellow deserters and organized. According to Jefferson and Stauffer, “The Newton Knight who returned to Jones County after Vicksburg was a strike-first killer and dedicated enemy of the Confederacy.” As many as 200 in number, the former soldiers elected Knight their captain, calling themselves “The Jones County Scouts,” and declared independence from the Confederacy.It didn’t take long for the Scouts to make a name for themselves, raiding Confederate supply convoys, distributing food to destitute families and helping to free any enslaved people that they could. For example, once the guerilla band seized the local Confederate conscription officer and “in broad daylight called him outside and voted on whether to hang him. He was ‘paroled’ after swearing to leave and never again enter the county.”According to local legend, when Major Amos McLemore of the Confederate army visited Jones County in 1863 to search out deserters, Knight shot him point blank in the head with a shotgun at a local tavern. However, “no one in the room could identify the attacker.”The Scouts had strong allies in the Black population, giving them food, ammunition, information and other supplies. There is no hard information about the composition of the guerilla army, except that “every day more blacks liberated from plantations came into the swamps to join the struggle.”Many enslaved people risked life and limb to help, particularly Rachel, an enslaved person, who married Knight after the war. According to Jenkins and Stauffer, “They had an agreement, she would provide him with food and he would work to secure her freedom.” Knight was as good as his word. Eventually, he committed a “crime” in post-Reconstruction Mississippi by recognizing their own children and fighting for their right to attend school. Rachel and Newton were buried together outside a cemetery, because it was also “illegal” to have integrated cemeteries at the time.The Confederacy responded with fierce repression against the guerrillas. Like the Pentagon did in Vietnam 100 years later, the slaveowners’ army tried to force them out of the swamps by torturing their families, ruining their farms, stealing their food and animals, and beating their spouses and children. An entire regiment of about 500 soldiers was sent to terrorize Jones County. Ten guerrillas were lynched, left hanging as a warning to others. But as soon as the Confederate army left to other war fronts, the Scouts reorganized. Eventually 53 scouts escaped to join the Union army.Newton Knight must rank among the heroes of the Civil War. Thousands of poor whites throughout the South followed his example and became pro-Union. It is no accident that his story was drowned out in the mythology of the neofascist post-Reconstruction period. As false as the racist myth of the “happy” slave of Disney cartoons is the myth that every poor white farmer of the Civil War South was racist and 100-percent loyal to the Confederacy.Due to the Civil Rights Movement, the new Black Lives Matter movement and the campaigns against the Confederate flag of slavery, the truth about the anti-slavery struggle continues to surface. According to Jenkins and Stauffer, “Newton Knight had more in common with the slaves he had met in the swamps, who treated him better and showed him more basic humanity than the Confederate authorities who claimed to be his countrymen.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Black Lives Matter, the elections and self-determination

first_imgLet’s be honest, Bernie Sanders and his campaign of “democratic socialism” have struck a chord with young people and the millennials. To deny that would not only be inaccurate; it would be a lie, because it’s true. His primary base is among the youth, who are looking and ready right now for something new. They’re not afraid of socialism. They weren’t indoctrinated by Ronald Reagan’s propaganda against communism.For millennials, just to have a bourgeois presidential candidate actually utter the words “racism, poverty, inequality and police brutality” is enough to offer a glimmer of hope, which is why there are a few factions of the Black Lives Matter movement who do indeed support Bernie Sanders. Mind you, this is the same “hope” that Barack Obama spoke of, but never delivered, and had never planned to deliver. The numbers among young people certainly reflect this “loss of hope.”Voters aged 18 to 29 who cast ballots in 2008 were a record high at 48 percent. (Washington Post, May 14) By 2012, that number had fallen to 41 percent. Young people began to realize that just because Barack Obama looked Black didn’t mean that he was going to speak to the issues of Black bodies, not only here in the U.S. but internationally.In 2008, dark nations from all over the world were absolutely thrilled with the Obama win! People of color were celebrating all over the world: Brazil, Haiti, India, Kenya, Puerto Rico. Everyone was excited; that is, until this same face became a facelift of U.S. imperialism.Iraq, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Libya, Somalia, etc., all became targets of this same facelift. And as more and more of the working class right here at home — white, Black, Latino/a — suffered the brunt of ruling-class priorities and corporate thuggery, with a continuation of the status quo, school closings and the construction of private prisons, the covers began to be pulled back.Young people saw all this for themselves firsthand! You wonder why the youth are taking over streets and highways? That’s why! You wonder why young people are sitting in, dying in and shutting stuff down? That’s why!Yet people are wondering why the students at Missouri, UCLA, Duke, Harvard, even The Citadel are raising their voices and making some serious demands. That’s why! We lived the false promises. We saw what happened to Oscar Grant. We saw what happened to Troy Davis. We saw what happened to Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Sandra Bland. We saw the truth of this ugly system! And it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out just how messed up it really is.It hurt the old and the young — something that really lit a fire within this generation, particularly among Black women.We watched a Black president, married to a Black woman, who fathered two beautiful Black girls, have the nerve to support a $2 million bounty on the head of an exiled Black woman freedom fighter, Assata Shakur, who has given her life to the pursuit of Black Liberation, who has had no choice but to live separated from her family and kinfolk.When the U.S. government waged a new war on Assata, President Obama and this racist, capitalist system truly revealed itself to a new generation. It was a new war on all of us, a new war on the same people who actually believed in 2008. After Mike Brown’s body lay in the street for four hours, dangling in the streets of Ferguson like strange fruit, all bets were off!So here we are, a year and half later. Black Lives Matter and a host of others are shutting these candidates down, Republicans and the Democrats.“To hell with ‘em! To hell with the whole damn system, and everything it stands for!” That’s the sentiment now, the raw and unfiltered emotion that neither Hillary or Bernie nor the Democratic Party had prepared for.The Black, Brown and poor vote has always been taken for granted. Black youth have always been written off as “Well, they don’t vote anyway, so who cares.”But, thankfully, the effectiveness of this movement isn’t leaning on the vote because it’s rooted in the streets. It is fueled not only by our constant state of mental and physical oppression, but by direct action and radical resistance — by any means necessary.If that means interrupting Bill Clinton, so be it. If that means shutting Trump down, so be it. If that means boycotting Christmas sales, so be it. If that means holding officials of color like [Cook County State’s Attorney] Anita Alvarez accountable, so be it. And if that means that Black youth need the space and time to organize ourselves, as in the Movement for Black Lives Convening in Cleveland, Ohio, last year, so be it.As a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist Party, we have to support that, respect that and get behind it.Defending a political rightAs Workers World Party’s founder, Sam Marcy, declared in a 1971 document entitled “Political and Organizational Problems Facing Our Party,” “Our Party has consistently advocated self-determination under difficult circumstances and has given the liberation struggle its utmost support as much as circumstances possibly permit.”Marcy continued, “The tendency of white radicals has been to try to explain the ‘liberation struggle’ to Black people while neglecting their main task of fighting racism and defending the Black liberation struggle.”What we see today from several socialist tendencies is so whitewashed, academic and judgmental. What we’re seeing from this new surge of Black and Brown millennials is an internal struggle being played out publicly of what self-determination is going to look like for them in the U.S.The job of revolutionaries is to try to understand them, not to silence them.Marcy so eloquently stated: “The right to self-determination is a political right which oppressed nations may use in whatever form they may ultimately decide as a nation. We must advocate and support that right. But we do not advocate separation, secession, federation or amalgamation. That is for the oppressed nation to decide. Our continuing propaganda for self-determination is aimed at helping the oppressed nations in whatever decision they make. The building of a workers’ party is not to be confused with the exercise of self-determination. And foremost of the tasks of the Party is the struggle against racism, repression and for self-determination.”The struggle will continue in the streets, on the picket lines, in the classrooms of college campuses. Revolutionaries should be on the right side and ready to fight with every weapon at our disposal.Marcy would agree that Black lives will only matter when self-determination matters.All power to the people!Lilly is the 2016 vice presidential candidate of Workers World Party.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Future of eBikes is Coming

first_img Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy More Cool Stuff Make a comment Subscribe Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Ebikes are about to get a major boost as the Bosch motor system is about to hit American shores next year.Massively popular in Europe, the USA version of the motor system will be more powerful and zippier (as most US state laws are more liberal than Europe’s). Brio Electric Bikes in Monrovia will be carrying several models from Haibike, a German brand imported by Currie/IZIP, that features the new Bosch motor system.Haibike models will feature Bosch’s Performance Line motor, and is designed for sportive, powerful cycling and accelerating in hilly terrain. The motor is mounted at the crank (pedal arms), which gives better weight distribution than hub motors, and allows the motor to run more efficiently.The Haibikes themselves are beautiful bikes that look more like modern mountain and hybrid bikes than electric bikes. There are full suspension models, making off road riding possible for the less athletic. The battery is pack mounted where the water bottle rack is usually found, which makes them look ‘natural’ and a low center of gravity.Haibike, as all bikes with the Bosch system, won’t come cheap and will not be available until the spring. If you don’t want to wait and spend top dollar for the latest, check out the 2013 clearance going on now at Brio.Check out Brio Electric Bikes’ Facebook announcement here https://facebook.com/BrioElectricBikes.Brio Electric Bikes is located at 113 E.

Woman missing for months found alive; foraged for grass, moss to survive: Utah officials

first_imgUtah County Sheriff’s Office(UTAH COUNTY, Utah) — A “resourceful” 47-year-old woman missing for months has been found alive in a tent in Utah County, Utah, telling officials she foraged for grass and moss to survive.Officials believe the woman — who was weak and had lost weight when found Monday — chose to stay in the Diamond Fork area over the last few months, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said.Search and rescue crews first looked for her in December after finding an abandoned car and camping equipment.“Over the next several months efforts were made to identify and contact family without success,” the sheriff’s office said Monday. “Detectives did make contact with this woman’s former co-workers but they did not get any information that suggested where this woman might be. They did, however, find information that suggested this woman might struggle with mental health challenges.”On Sunday, a sheriff’s office sergeant and other searchers returned to Diamond Fork to look for her. When their drone crashed, the sergeant and drone pilot walked into the hills to retrieve it, and came across a tent, the sheriff’s office said. Inside was the missing woman.She had a small amount of food with her and access to water in a nearby river, officials said.Deputies took the woman to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation, officials said.The sheriff’s office said, “While many people might choose to not live in the circumstances and conditions this woman did, she did nothing against the law.
