Bryan Habana’s massive hit on Lions winger Tommy Bowe in 2009

first_imgTuesday Feb 23, 2016 Bryan Habana’s massive hit on Lions winger Tommy Bowe in 2009 Bryan Habana was in the news yesterday as he has been called up to join the Springbok 7s team as they prepare for the next two rounds of the World Sevens Series. Here is a clip of him in action against the British & Irish Lions in 2009, with one of the hits of the series.Habana is another in a line of high profile fifteens stars to have switched over to 7s ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Sonny Bill Williams has made the change, and Quade Cooper will also be taking part in the next round in Las Vegas, in two weeks time.World Cup winner Habana scored a try for French club Toulon on the weekend, but they have agreed to release him to join the Springbok Sevens squad in Stellenbosch.Do you think Habana will do well in Sevens?Above is that hit from 2009, and on the next page (or below) you can see an interview with coach Neil Powell, as well as read some of Habana’s achievements in rugby.“Bryan is an unbelievable rugby player and his outstanding playing record and achievements in the Springbok jersey speaks for itself,” said Powell. “I am really excited by the prospects of him joining our training squad.“Bryan is one of those players that always has a lot of energy. Apart from that, he brings with him a lot of experience of playing rugby at the very top level, so in that sense his presence in the squad will also be a great motivational factor for our guys.“I can tell you Bryan is very eager to learn. He realises that it’s been a very long time since he last played Sevens, but he is excited by this challenge and really looking forward to be part of our system.”Habana’s rugby achievements:Holds Springbok record for tries in Tests for South Africa (64) and for most tries overall as a wing (64). Most capped Springbok wing (116). Record-holder for most tries in a career in the Castle Lager Rugby Championship (19). Honours: SA Rugby Player of the Year (2012, 2007 & 2005); Young Player of the Year (2004); IRB Rugby Player of the Year (2007); Vodacom Rugby Super 12 Player of the Tournament (2005); SuperSport Try of the Year (2005, Vodacom Bulls vs Blues in Pretoria; 2007, Vodacom Bulls vs Sharks in the Super 14 Final in Durban; and 2012, South Africa vs New Zealand in Dunedin). Scored a record equalling eight tries during RWC 2007.Equalled Jonah Lomu’s record of 15 tries in all RWC games in 2015 in England.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

On a heavily wooded site, down a gravel road in the heart of a suburban neighborhood, lies the Parks Residence. The house blends into the surrounding forest through the use of subdued materials and reflection, hiding away light-filled volumes inside. Beginning with a simple box, the outer form was manipulated to orient views towards the trees to the east and creek to the west. Envisioned as a Wunderkammer, or “cabinet of wonder”, the interior spaces strive to be a backdrop for the numerous weird and wonderful objects collected by the client over several decades. Save this picture!© Keith IsaacsThe program for the house is a relatively simple one. A retiring boutique owner needed a place to be surrounded by nature, walls to hang her art, and views to the creek so she could watch her grandchildren play. Careful siting of the footprint preserved as many of the existing trees as possible and worked with the topography to minimize earth moving.Save this picture!© Keith IsaacsSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Keith IsaacsThe metal clad first floor houses the main living and sleeping areas with deep overhangs to protect the exterior decks and windows from sun and rain. Large bands of glass to the east and west bring the surrounding forest visually into the house and blur the lines between inside and outside. A double-height central space allows light into the interior and views to the tree canopy beyond. The second-floor box is home to a library loft for reflection and study, an outdoor terrace facing the creek, and two bedrooms for visiting family members.Save this picture!© Keith IsaacsThe Parks residence is located on a steeply sloping site, so a cast in place concrete foundation serves both as retaining wall and crawl space/storage below. Engineered wood floor and roof trusses are used to create the long spans required by the large open living areas and exterior overhangs, reinforced by steel beams. Locally sourced cypress siding used on the exterior creates a physical and visual connection to the forest surrounding the house and dark metal wall panels further make the house visually disappear. Save this picture!© Keith IsaacsA sloping TPO roof is easily accessible for maintenance from the second-floor balcony. The metal staircase leading to the library loft is tube steel with self-tapping connections used for the floating steel stair tread supports. A repurposed steel mesh welding curtain gets a new life as a privacy screen for the large bank of double paned windows at the front elevation.Save this picture!© Keith IsaacsProject gallerySee allShow lessWanderwall / MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANYSelected ProjectsM House / ariasrecalde taller de arquitecturaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Keith Isaacs+ 16Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/912764/parks-residence-the-raleigh-architecture-co Clipboard United States “COPY” Housescenter_img CopyHouses•Raleigh, United States CopyAbout this officeThe Raleigh Architecture Co.OfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRaleighUnited StatesPublished on March 08, 2019Cite: “Parks Residence / The Raleigh Architecture Co.” 08 Mar 2019.

Despite projected results, key days still ahead in post-election process

What comes next is a string of key dates in the bureaucratic process that follows every presidential election.Dec. 8 is the deadline for states to resolve election disputes such as recounts and post-election audits. Georgia’s Secretary of State said in a press conference earlier this week that there will be a recount by hand in the state, and officials in Arizona said Thursday their state election audit found no evidence of voter fraud. President Trump’s campaign has also filed lawsuits in several states he is trailing in, including Pennsylvania and Nevada, which would have to be resolved by this deadline.On Dec. 14, electors from individual states will cast their ballots on behalf of the state’s population. These ballots must be delivered to the proper officials by Dec. 23.Congress will then hold a joint session of the Senate and the House of Representatives to officially count the votes and elect the president. According to the AP, these processes are not expected to change the outcome of the presidential election.All these processes traditionally culminate on Inauguration Day, which is scheduled for Jan. 20, when the president-elect will be sworn in as president of the U.S.President-elect Joe Biden, meanwhile, has been holding daily transition press conferences, and assembled his “COVID-19 Advisory Council.” Biden stressed in his conferences the importance of following the science and working with officials at each level of government and health.The AP projected on Saturday that Biden has gained the necessary 270 electoral votes to win the election.Read more: Biden defeats Trump, becomes president-elect + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU News Now 4/1/2021 Noah Parkerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/noah-parker/ Noah Parkerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/noah-parker/ PolitiFrog2020 ElectionsNewsDespite projected results, key days still ahead in post-election processBy Noah Parker – November 13, 2020 1532 ReddIt Previous articleCOVID-19 cases increase as semester comes to an endNext articleHoroscope: November 14, 2020 Noah Parker Big 12 football kicks off season Linkedin Linkedin ReddIt Noah Parkerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/noah-parker/ Facebook TCU News Now 3/17/2021 Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

After visiting Cameroon, Reporters Without Borders urges government to take action

first_img May 19, 2021 Find out more Organisation Receive email alerts May 31, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case Case against Amadou Vamoulké baseless, French lawyers tell Cameroon court to go further CameroonAfrica Follow the news on Camerooncenter_img CameroonAfrica October 5, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 After visiting Cameroon, Reporters Without Borders urges government to take action News April 23, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders visited Cameroon from 26 September to 2 October to assess the degree of media freedom during the campaign for the 9 October presidential election and to promote a series of reforms that are needed to improve media freedom, including a new media law and the decriminalization of press offences.Communication minister and government spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary said a national conference on media and communication will be held in 2012.“The media’s coverage of the campaign is trying to be balanced but the campaign itself is not,” Reporters Without Borders said. “President Paul Biya, who is running for reelection, and the ruling Cameroon People’s Democratic Rally (RDPC) are everywhere. Biya is the only candidate to be seen on campaign posters. The opposition is hardly managing to make its voice heard. Everyone agrees that there is little political debate and this is reflected in the media.“It is clear from the diversity of the media and the outspoken reporting style that press freedom is a reality in Cameroon. But much needs to be done to improve the media, protect journalists and enable them to work effectively. We stand ready to help the Cameroonian authorities carry out these reforms. They showed a readiness to listen. We are now waiting for them to act. The statements of good intention must be followed by action.”Reporters Without Borders has written to the 23 presidential candidates asking them to give an undertaking to defend and promote media freedom if elected.The press freedom organization also handed in a formal note to the government urging it to organize a national conference on media and communication in the very near future, to reform the legal and institutional system affecting the media, and to decriminalize press offences.The decriminalization of media offences would protect journalists from being jailed in connection with their work. Cameroon’s image was badly damaged by the death of Germain Ngota Ngota, a newspaper editor also known as Bibi Ngota, in Yaoundé’s Kondengui prison in April 2010. It highlighted the fact that journalists can still be sent to prison in Cameroon and do not receive adequate medical care while there. Cameroon had risen 20 places (to 109th) in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index but it fell by a similar number in 2010 as a result of this tragedy.Decriminalization does not put journalists beyond the law and does not mean they are free to do as they like. A press offence can still be punished, but only by measures that are fair, appropriate and proportionate, not by prison sentences.“There is still some reticence in Cameroon on this issue,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Some senior officials think that the threat of imprisonment is still a necessary safeguard. But in practice it is ineffective, repressive and counter-productive for the country’s image. For these reasons, Cameroon must decriminalize press offences.”The legislation affecting the media, mainly to be found in the 1996 Social Communication Law and in the criminal code, sits poorly with the vitality of the country’s press. It makes no provision for online media, it confuses media offences with common crimes, gives too much power to political and administrative officials and does not provide enough protection for access to information and the confidentiality of sources. The media’s entire legislative and institutional framework needs modernizing.“In Cameroon, an offence committed by means of the media is not a media offence, and this is not right,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The law should recognize the special nature of a journalist’s work, just as it should recognize that a media offence is a specific kind of offence.”These two important reforms – the adoption of a new media law and the decriminalization of media offences – should be discussed when the national conference on media and communication is held. This event would enable a redefinition of the rules and pave the way for an overhaul of the media sector. Who is a journalist and who isn’t? What is the significance of a press card? Who issues it? Who has the right to one? What are the conditions for creating a media? And what about journalism training, media regulation and self-regulation?Reporters Without Borders raised two important issues with the authorities. One was the economic environment in which the media operate. The communication minister acknowledged that the media receive very little assistance from the state. The other was official recognition of the privately-owned media, which are not accredited with the president’s and prime minister’s offices and are never invited to accompany the president on official trips.Abusive practices within the media were also discussed. The authorities complained of the existence of a “gutter press” and of media that do a great deal of harm. Rather than passively lament this state of affairs, the authorities were urged to do something about it. Many observers think Cameroon’s politicians just reap what they sow when they exploit the weaknesses of the media to settle scores with each other.“The gutter press is fuelled by the hidden corridors of power, which provide it with much of its funding,” a newspaper editor told Reporters Without Borders. “Disreputable journalists who do not respect professional ethics or codes of conduct feed from the breast of these political predators.”“The media are varied in Cameroon, but they are not independent and they let themselves be used,” a Yaoundé-based journalist said. Lots of politicians fight their battles through the media. At the same time, some journalists use information or rumours to blackmail leading figures. They are denounced as “hold-up journalists” or “blackmail journalists” by some of their colleagues.All these terms reflect the sad reality of the Cameroonian press, its relations with politicians and businessmen, and how it is bought and exploited by them for their offensives and counter-offensives.*During this visit, Ambroise Pierre, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa Desk, accompanied by Jules Koum Koum, the Reporters Without Borders Cameroon correspondent, met with communication minister and government spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary, presidential private secretary and chief of staff Martin Belinga Eboutou, and Msgr. Joseph Befe Ateba, the head of the National Communication Council (CNC), a media regulatory body.They also met with lawyers, European diplomats and many journalists, and visited most of the newspapers in Douala and Yaoundé.Picture : President Paul Biya’s campaign (STR/AFP) News Cameroonian reporter jailed since August, abandoned by justice system Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Alleyway to be closed due to anti-social behaviour

first_imgWhatsApp Limerick City and County Council will close public access to the alleyway at the back of the Track Bar between South Claughaun Road and Greenhills Road in Garryowen.The move comes following representations from Fianna Fail TD Willie O’Dea and Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “This is being done in line with the wishes of local residents to help combat antisocial behaviour and illegal dumping which has been prevalent at this location,” Deputy O’Dea told the Limerick Post this week.“Local residents have had to endure constant noise and littering in and around the alleyway. The fact that an alleyway which has been there for decades has to be closed off shows there is an epidemic of antisocial behaviour in this city and that people’s lives are being made a misery.”“I am being contacted almost on a daily basis by individuals and community groups with stories about how their lives and the lives of their neighbours are being made a living hell by gurriers and gangs of youths who are terrorising neighbourhoods.“I am constantly liaising with the Council and An Garda Siochana on the matter. The Gardaí in Limerick are completely stretched and need far more resources to tackle the issue in an effective manner.“We also have to change the laws to make sure that the sanctions, even for younger children, are appropriate. We have to stamp out the scourge that is anti-social behaviour.”Contractors are due to start work on blocking off the alleyway within the next fortnight.Read more politics news here.
