Former Bok skipper describes the moment he deliberately targeted Matt Dawson with THAT vicious swinging arm

first_imgFriday Oct 9, 2020 Former Bok skipper describes the moment he deliberately targeted Matt Dawson with THAT vicious swinging arm Close to two years to the day since Corne Krige tweeted an apology to Matt Dawson – 16 years after the incident – the former Springbok captain has spoken openly about how he deliberately targeted the England scrumhalf on that forgettable day at Twickenham in 2002.ADVERTISEMENTThe Springboks suffered one of their most humiliating defeats on record in 2002 when they went down 50-3 to a powerful England unit.While a powerful England team were building towards their 2003 Rugby World Cup win, the heavy loss to the Springboks was in many ways due to an early red card to lock Jannes Labuschagne, for a challenge on Jonny Wilkinson that is debated to this day.As the visitors unravelled and the points piled up, things got decidedly ugly, led by then captain Krige. The flanker took it upon himself to cause all manners of destruction, including one tackle in particular that Dawson has not forgotten. In 2018, the former England scrumhalf tweeted about it, to which Krige replied.Just recently, he appeared on the new Use It or Lose It show, talking to Jean de Villiers and Schalk Burger about what happened on that day.Krige was so fired up, that he accidentally knocked out his own flyhalf, Andre Pretorius. He tells an amusing story about coach Rudolf Straeuli’s comments post match (see videos below), but Dawson would probably not be too pleased to hear about how he admits to having deliberately targeted him.“In a sense – and this might sound bizarre – I would rather do what I did than chuck the towel in, as some of the other Springbok players did,” Krige wrote in his autobiography.As Krige explains below, Dawson wouldn’t stop talking, so he felt he had to do something about it.ADVERTISEMENTYou can watch a short video of the incident again here, including the moment in the press conference that Krige spoke about: 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.

BYO Ethanol Helping Retailers Apply for REAP Funds

first_img BYO Ethanol Helping Retailers Apply for REAP Funds SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Energy BYO Ethanol Helping Retailers Apply for REAP Funds USDA is accepting applications for Rural Energy for America program funds to help with the installation of blender pumps – which allow gasoline retailers and consumers to choose the blend of ethanol they want from no ethanol content to 85-percent ethanol by volume. For those interested in applying – the Blend Your Own Ethanol Campaign – a joint educational effort by the American Coalition for Ethanol and the Renewable Fuels Association – will offer free grant writing services. RFA Director of Marketing Development Robert White says REAP has provided funding for hundreds of blender pumps the past two years – providing many consumers with the choice and flexibility they deserve to pick the ethanol blends that work for them. He says the BYO Ethanol Campaign can assist retailers in applying for these funds – ultimately helping the Obama Administration achieve the renewable fuels goals they have put forward.With E15 – White says retailers have more options than ever. He says blender pumps will help spread this new blend across the country. Ron Lamberty – ACE Senior Vice President – says we can continue to break the stranglehold oil has over the nation’s economy and energy future by giving consumers more options at the pump. He says USDA’s announcement – along with the efforts of the BYO Ethanol Campaign – will go a long way toward making that happen. RFA and ACE note that increasing the number of blender pumps in operation in conjunction with expanding the size of the America’s flex-fuel vehicle fleet capable of using high level ethanol blends is critical to achieving our nation’s energy goals – including commercializing advanced ethanol technologies.Applications for the grant program are due on April 30th. For more information on the REAP Program, free grant writing services or blender pumps – please visit www dot BYOEthanol.com (www.BYOEthanol.com).

Support to Burkinabé media

first_imgThe organisations signing this communiqué, all currently engaged in supporting and accompanying Burkinabè media, wish to congratulate Burkina Faso media – and more broadly the people of Burkina – which have shown the greatest courage in recent days when they were seriously threatened. Despite pressure, threats and attempts to silence them and to prevent them from freely exercising their work of providing fellow citizens with news and information, Burkinabè journalists and media continued to broadcast credible and independent information, notably with their presence on social media, when possible. Alongside them, civil society actors and human rights activists – who were also seriously harassed since the beginning of the coup – took over the internet and the streets to protest against this blow to the democratic transition, which had started after the popular uprising of October 30 and 31, 2014.CFI, Deutsche Welle Akademie, Fondation Hirondelle, International Media Support, Internews and Reporters Without Borders wish to again express their support for their partners, all engaged in defending the current transition in their country, especially since the beginning of the crisis. We are with them and encourage them to continue their mobilization and to inform citizens in an independent manner.We also condemn all forms of violence and threats made against the media and their staff, human rights advocates and Burkinabè citizens. Here is a list, unfortunately not exhaustive, of abuses carried out against the media and journalists in recent days:- The shutting down of transmitters of several radio stations across the country;- The radio Omega FM’s motorbikes set on fire in Ouagadougou;- The pillaging of radio Savane FM’s equipment (including transmitter and computers) in Ouagadougou;- The ransacking and burning of Radio Laafi in Zorgho (a hundred kilometers east of Ouagadougou);- Shootings at Mogtedo and Goudri radio stations; – An attack on the television station BF1 in Ouagadougou;- The taking over of the Radio Television Burkinabè (RTB) by the RSP;- The beating of a photographer with the online newspaper Lefaso.net and a journalist with Burkina24.com near the premises of the BF1 television station;- The assault of a journalist from the newspaper Sidwaya and the destruction of his camera;- The shooting of a correspondent in Ouagadougou for the newspaper Sidwaya in Bogandé;- The physical assault of the editor in chief of Le Pays in Ouagadougou;- Threats and intimidation against of several journalists;- Surveillance of homes and workplaces of several journalists and media managers;- The seizure of two cameras and a car from Droit Libre TV and attacks on several of their reporters.

RFI signal and Internet cut simultaneously in Congo-Brazzaville

first_img March 5, 2021 Find out more “It is hard to believe that these cuts happened by chance on the same day as a demonstration that was clearly feared by the Congolese government, whose media control methods are notorious,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“It would be an incredible coincidence if RFI and the Internet just happened to go down at the same time, especially given the growing importance of social networks in circulating news in real time. The competent authorities must do everything possible to restore the RFI signal as soon as the ‘maintenance’ is completed, and to restore Internet connections.”A Brazzaville journalist said that, while all the pro-government radio and TV stations had no broadcasting problems, it was impossible for independent journalists “to send a photo or report what is going on.”For months, privately-owned media critical of the government have been the target of administrative closures or withdrawals of their operating licence. And of late, the police have taken to questioning or arresting people as soon as a few of them gather in the street. This has made it very difficult for journalists to report and conduct interviews in public. Receive email alerts RSF_en October 23, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RFI signal and Internet cut simultaneously in Congo-Brazzaville Radio France Internationale’s local retransmission signal was disconnected at 6 a.m. on 20 October 2015 in the Republic of Congo (Congo-Brazzaville) while Internet and SMS services went down throughout the country.All this happened just as the opposition was preparing to hold a major demonstration against next Sunday’s referendum on a controversial constitutional amendment that would allow President Denis Sassou Nguesso to run for a third term. Was it just a coincidence?At least four demonstrators were killed when the police used force to disperse the protest.The communication minister was quoted on the RFI website as saying the cut in its signal was due to “maintenance” on the RFI transmitter and that other transmitters were affected. The loss in mobile phone services was said to be due to “overload.” Congo-BrazzavilleAfrica May 4, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Congo-Brazzaville Congo celebrates World Press Freedom Day by sentencing a journalist to six months in prison News Ailing magazine editor held illegally in Brazzaville for more than a month Help by sharing this information March 31, 2021 Find out more News Joint call for Brazzaville journalist’s release News Congo-BrazzavilleAfrica News to go further Organisation last_img read more

Heavy snowstorm pounds Germany, upends travel

first_imgLocal NewsBusinessUS NewsWorld News By Digital AIM Web Support – February 7, 2021 Pinterest Facebook Facebook Pinterest Heavy snowstorm pounds Germany, upends travel WhatsAppcenter_img Twitter TAGS  BERLIN (AP) — A snowstorm and strong winds pounded northern and western Germany on Sunday, forcing trains to cancel trips and leading to hundreds of vehicle crashes. Police said 28 people were injured on icy roads. The German Weather Service DWD urged people to stay at home and authorities brought homeless people into warm shelters amid the sub-freezing temperatures. National train operator Deutsche Bahn said main train routes between Hamburg and Hannover, Berlin and the west were canceled as snowdrifts piled up on the tracks and power lines. Some train connections in the east were also canceled, though most of the snow came down in the northwest. Police in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia said early Sunday they had counted 222 road crashes because of the bad weather conditions since Saturday afternoon. They said two people among the 28 were severely injured. In the Muensterland region and eastern Westphalia, authorities banned trucks from driving on highways until 8 p.m. on Sunday, while in Hesse state, 55 trucks got stuck in the snow trying to drive up a rising stretch of a highway near Knuellwald in the direction of Kassel and elsewhere. The Bundesliga soccer game between Arminia Bielefeld and Werder Bremen was called off hours before kickoff Sunday because of the snowstorm. “Due to the heavy and prolonged snowfall combined with frost, it’s not guaranteed that the game can be carried out properly,” the German soccer league said in statement. “A new date for the game will be announced shortly.” In the western city of Muenster, among the hardest hit places, there was so much snow on the streets that ambulances could no longer drive and all public transportation was shut down. More than 30 centimeters (almost 12 inches) of snow had fallen, piling up to a meter (over three feet) in some parts, and more snow was expected to fall on Sunday. In Wuppertal, in western Germany, firefighters had to rescue six passengers out of the city’s famous elevated railway after a train stopped moving due to the icy conditions. They had to climb up on ladders to reach the people on the train and help them down to the ground, dpa reported. In the western town of Hagen, a circus tent collapsed under the weight of the snow, but firefighters succeeded in rescuing all 13 animals buried by the tent. Seven horses, two camels, two goats and two lamas were found underneath the tent and the snow, but none of the animals were injured, officials said. Also in Hagen, city authorities walked through the streets at night waking up homeless people sleeping outside and taking them to shelters, the German news agency dpa reported. In Berlin, the capital’s biggest shelter, a tent city on the outskirts, was cleared early Saturday to make sure people don’t freeze to death in sub-freezing temperatures. While the west of the country was freezing, southern Germany experienced balmy, spring-like temperatures. The unusual weather and temperature divide was caused by a polar vortex pushing icy air from the Arctic toward northern Germany just as a low pressure front brings wet, warm weather from the southwest, the DWD said. In the Netherlands, snow blanketed much of the country, forcing the government to cancel a weekly crisis meeting to discuss the coronavirus pandemic. Train services were suspended and Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport warned passengers of possible flight cancellations. National broadcaster NOS showed images of an early morning snowball fight involving residents and police on Amsterdam’s central Dam Square. The Dutch meteorological office KNMI raised its weather warning to code red for the whole country. ——— Ciaran Fahey in Berlin, and Mike Corder in Wekerom, Netherlands, contributed to this report.

Let Employees Cast Their Vote On Election Day, Even If It Causes Inconvenience To Employers: Madras High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesLet Employees Cast Their Vote On Election Day, Even If It Causes Inconvenience To Employers: Madras High Court Sparsh Upadhyay27 March 2021 7:27 AMShare This – xAt least on the date of the election, every citizen should make it possible for every other citizen to participate in the celebration of democracy: Madras High courtIn a significant observation, the Madras High Court on Thursday (25th March) said that at least on the date of the election, every citizen should make it possible for every other citizen to participate in the celebration of democracy. The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy made an ardent appeal to all the employers to make it possible for their employees to cast their vote on election day, even if it entails a degree of inconvenience to the employers. Noting that under the Constitutional scheme, every citizen has equal rights, the Court directed both the State Government and the Election Commission “To publish appropriate notifications to make the employees aware of their rights so that the employees may assert themselves and take appropriate steps to exercise their franchise.” Significantly, Election Commission has also been given the liberty to indicate that subsequent complaints may be entertained and if found credible, the complaints may result in criminal proceedings being instituted. The matter before the Court The Court was hearing public interest litigation filed to ensure that person engaged primarily in the unorganized sector and in private employment are afforded a chance to participate in the exercise of voting at the ensuing State elections. The petitioner pointed out that even though Section 135B of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 [Grant of paid holiday to employees on the day of poll], mandated that election day would be a paid holiday for employees engaged in any business, trade, industrial undertaking or any other establishment and who are entitled to vote, as a matter of fact, employers do not allow the concerned employees to take a day off and there is little done in the enforcement of the provision. In response to this, the Election Commission said that the fine is so insignificant (rupees 500) that the provision does not work effectively as a deterrent. Further, it was also submitted that the exception carved out in sub-Section (4) to Section 135B of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 gives a handle to employers to use the same as an excuse. Notably, sub-section 4 states that the section shall not apply to any elector whose absence may cause danger or substantial loss in respect of the employment in which he is engaged. Case title- M.
