Lions 2013: Third Test Australia 16-41 Lions

first_imgIn the first half it was the full-back’s boot that was crucial for the Lions, his penalty kicks building a 19-3 lead at one point. Then in the second half he helped prevent a Wallaby try by diving on a kick through when James O’Connor and Kurtley Beale were charging towards him with plenty of space to work in, and he played a part in two of the four tries. First, he provided the scoring pass for Johnny Sexton after being set free by Jonathan Davies and Tommy Bowe, then he caught a high ball and his darting run down the wing set up George North to touch down.Mention must go to his fellow Welshman Alun Wyn Jones, who has been a force in all three Tests, the scrummaging prowess of Alex Corbisiero, Richard Hibbard and Adam Jones, and the hard-hitting performances of Sean O’Brien and Toby Faletau here in Sydney. But Halfpenny’s excellence throughout the tour makes him Man of the Series.StatsAustralia made twice as many clean breaks (six to three) and offloads (12 to six).Sean O’Brien was the top Lions tackler with 15 and Leigh Halfpenny made the most metres (85).Scorers NOT FOR FEATURED Australia – Try: O’Connor.

Scarlet fever: the Lions celebrate their first series win since 1997 after their emphatic victory over AustraliaBy Sarah Mockford at ANZ Stadium in SydneyIn a nutshellWOW! Is there a better word to sum up this win?! The Lions have won their first series for 16 years, absolutely destroying Australia in Sydney. They started the game as they finished, overpowering the Wallabies in the scrum – Romain Poite rewarding the tourists’ dominance with penalty after penalty – but they also outscored Australia four tries to one, damning suggestions that they were simply a side of brute force.Early in the second half the Wallabies were in the ascendancy, having gone from 19-3 down to 19-16, but the pendulum quickly swung the other way and the Lions scored three tries in 12 minutes, Johnny Sexton, George North and Jamie Roberts crossing the whitewash in well-worked moves.It was a resounding victory – highlighted by the fact Lions fans gleefully waved their Australian counterparts from the stadium with ten minutes remaining. The gold may have trooped out early, but the red was blazing long into the night.Key momentToby Faletau’s turnover on the Lions 22 in the 54th minute. The Wallabies had been putting the pressure on the tourists, but Faletau’s quick reactions got them possession, Johnny Sexton kicked ahead for George North, who fed Jonathan Davies. The centre stood up well when tackled by two Wallabies and it resulted in a Lions lineout on the Australia 22 – quite a turnaround. From that set-piece came Sexton’s try and a crucial lead that the Lions never rescinded.Kick-start: Leigh HalfpennyStar man – Leigh Halfpenny LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

All Blacks take the lead in opening Bledisloe Cup clash vs Wallabies

first_imgSunday Aug 19, 2012 All Blacks take the lead in opening Bledisloe Cup clash vs Wallabies The All Blacks went one-nil up in the 2012 Bledisloe Cup with a 27-19 win over the Wallabies in Sydney. The game signalled the start of the inaugral Rugby Championship, and put the visitors in a commanding position ahead of the return match. The Wallabies needed to win in Sydney to have a decent crack at stopping the All Blacks’ ten year Bledisloe Cup reign. As it is, they will need to travel to New Zealand’s Eden park and win next week.AB’s coach Steve Hansen has said that he will keep the same side where possible to make sure that the combinations get their best chance of gelling.“We’ll pick the best team we think for each game depending how people come through the previous match, but it’s unlikely there will be too many changes in the next week I wouldn’t think,” he said.“It just gives us an opportunity to get some miles under the belt as combinations and as a team. There might have to be one or two changes due to circumstances, but I shouldn’t think there will be many.”The All Blacks scored clincally from setpiece, as Israel Dagg and Cory Jane finished well.“I just had to back myself, which is something I haven’t been doing much,” said Dagg of his try.The Wallabies struck back through Nathan Sharpe, but Dan Carter edged the visitors out of reach, slotting a penalty on fulltime, preventing the hosts from getting a valuable losing bonus point.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

RSF and JED alarmed by police colonel’s threats against Radio Okapi journalist

first_img February 24, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and Journalist in Danger (JED) call on the police and military authorities in Democratic Republic of Congo to put a stop to the repeated threats against journalists by their personnel and to end the impunity enjoyed by those responsible for such threats. RSF and JED also call on the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO) to do everything possible to provide effective protection for Radio Okapi journalists who are the target of such threats. News to go further Organisation RSF_en August 5, 2016 RSF and JED alarmed by police colonel’s threats against Radio Okapi journalist Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders Help by sharing this information News Newscenter_img Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Gabriel Wamenya, Crédit : C-news Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo Receive email alerts Gabriel Wameyna, a journalist working for MONUSCO-backed Radio Okapi in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, was explicitly and aggresively threatened by Col. Van Kasongo, the deputy commander of the Nord-Kivu police, while in a MONUSCO helicopter with Kasongo Gabriel Wameyna, a journalist working for MONUSCO-backed Radio Okapi in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, was explicitly and aggresively threatened by Col. Van Kasongo, the deputy commander of the Nord-Kivu police, while in a MONUSCO helicopter with Kasongo and other provincial officials on 23 July. Accusing Wamenya of spreading “lies” in a Radio Okapi report, Col. Kasongo added: “I am strict in my habits (…) I am going to pursue you to the end.” Since then, Wamenya says he has been followed by policemen while out reporting and has received telephone threats at night. “We condemn in the strongest terms the threats against this Radio Okapi journalist and we call on the police authorities to send a clear message to their men to end such behaviour, which is unworthy of law enforcement personnel, and to punish those responsible,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We also call on Col. Kasongo to immediately retract his threats, failing which we will hold him responsible for anything that may happen to Gabriel Wamenya,” JED secretary-general Tshivis Tshivuadi said. Broadcast on 21 July, the offending report on Radio Okapi was about the severe beating received by a youth in Goma, the capital of Nord-Kivu, and his subsequent death. The director of the Nord-Kivu branch of Radio Okapi confirmed that the report was balanced and that all relevant parties were interviewed. Wamenya interviewed the youth’s family, who said they saw him being arrested and beaten by the police. The police dumped him outside the hospital morgue, but he was still alive and doctors tried to save him until he finally died of his injuries a week later. When Wamenya then contacted the police for a comment, Col. Kasongo said he was not aware of these events but, if they proved to be true, he would ensure that those responsible were prosecuted. After the threats were made, MONUSCO officials suggested a mediation meeting but their proposal was rejected by Col. Kasongo. He instead sent a letter to Radio Okapi and MONUSCO with an attached police report dated on the night of the event claiming that police officers found the young man in a gravely injured condition and took him to the hospital. If the police filed this report on the night of the event, it is astonishing that Col. Kasongo was not aware of it when interviewed by Wamenya a week later. When reached by RSF, Col. Kasongo denied threatening Wamenya, called him a liar and accused him of trying to defame the police. Paradoxically, he also said the police were very busy and did not have time to worry about Wamenya. “I am not this journalist’s keeper,” he concluded cryptically. “We call on the MONUSCO authorities to quickly implement the protective measures that are needed to guarantee the safety of this journalist, who is currently threatened,” RSF added. RSF has registered a total of 63 acts of persecution by the authorities against journalists in the Democratic Republic of Congo since the start of the year, 20 of them in Nord-Kivu. Two Radio Okapi journalists, Serge Maheshe and Didace Namujimbo, were murdered in Bukavu, the capital of the neighbouring province of Sud-Kivu, in 2007 and 2008 respectively. Their murderers were never definitively identified and punished. The DRC is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Amendment enlists ICT companies in protection of state secrets

first_imgNews ChinaAsia – Pacific China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News RSF_en Help by sharing this information News ChinaAsia – Pacific Follow the news on China April 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Amendment enlists ICT companies in protection of state secrets June 2, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News April 27, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts to go further Organisation China today adopted an amendment to the State Secrets Law forcing Internet and telecommunications companies to cooperate closely with the authorities on matters relating to national security.Under the amendment, which will take effect on 1 October, companies in these two sectors will be required to block transmission of state secrets over their networks, keep records of the activity and alert the authorities to possible violations. They could also be forced to suppress certain kinds of content. “This new amendment adds to an already sizable legal arsenal aimed at controlling news and information on the Chinese Internet,” Reporters Without Borders said. “In practice, these companies already cooperate with the authorities on national security matters. It remains to be seen if the government expects a more pro-active role from them or if it is just putting existing practices into writing in order legitimise them. The law does not say whether foreign companies are affected. If they are, we urge them to resists the excessive demands of the Chinese censors.”The press freedom organisation added: “The definition of ‘state secret’ is very broad and leaves the door open to all sorts of abuses. The authorities often use it to justify jailing dissidents and journalists so this amendment seems, on the one hand, to be yet another warning designed to encourage netizens to censor themselves and, on the other, an attempt to present an illusion of legality to the international community.”The head of the National Administration for the Protection of State Secrets told journalists at a briefing today that the law was designed to protect “national security and state secrets” and that other laws existed to protect the communications of individual citizens.When people are charged with violating state secrets, they or their lawyers are rarely allowed to see the details of the charges or the evidence against them.

The Show Off show was held in celebration of National Library Week and in partnership with the Brundidge Nutrition Center’s Easter egg hunt and family day.While the children were busy hunting candy-filled eggs on the grounds of the public library and playing games with their parents and grandparents, the Show Off Car and Truck Show, in the First National Bank parking lot, was the gathering place for vehicle enthusiasts. At first glance, Umbehagen’s vehicle looked like a soaped-up hot rod. Another view gave the appearance of a Model T and, from the back the truck looked like a moonshine runner. “It’s a made vehicle,” Umbehagen said, with a smile. “It’s made out of a lot of different parts. The cab’s from a ’37 Ford. The grill’s from a ’38 and the headlights or eyeballs are from a ’36. Another part of the vehicle was from a Desoto and the fuel tank was a beer keg. Each part has a story and Unbehagen was more than willing to tell the stories. Trawick said hopes are that future shows will attract more participants.“We have enough vintage cars and trucks around the Brundidge area to have a very interesting show,” she said. “Hopefully, more people will participate if we do the show again.“The Easter egg hunt was a lot of fun for the children. Wanda Vinson, center director, and the participants and the Robert E. Barr Nutrition Center did an outstanding job planning and conducting the hunt and the games for the children and adults. It was an inter-generational event and   everyone enjoyed it.
