Should Tendai Mtawarira tip tackle have resulted in red card?Eight years ago, Sam Warburton was sent off for a tip tackle on Vincent Clerc in Wales’ World Cup semi-final against France. Wales fought admirably in that match but ultimately lost by a point – history repeated itself in the two nations’ quarter-final this weekend, only the result was reversed.Referees were clamping down on the tip-tackle offence back in 2011 and it’s fair to say that type of tackle has become less prevalent in the game since.Yet in this year’s quarter-final between Japan and South Africa, Tendai Mtawarira was penalised for a similar tackle on his opposite number Keita Inagaki.The Japan loosehead was carrying the ball forward in the tenth minute when Mtawarira stepped in to make the tackle. Yet with the power of his hit he ended up taking Inagaki beyond the horizontal and dangerously tip-tackling him.The seriousness of the tackle was evident in the reaction of Jamie Joseph sitting in the Japan coaching box while Springbok Mtawarira immediately apologised too.Referee Wayne Barnes was quick to brandish the yellow card. The fact Inagaki landed on his shoulder appeared to be the mitigating factor in why a red card was not shown, but the fact Barnes didn’t consult the TMO did raise some eyebrows.Watch the tackle here and see whether you think it should have been a red or yellow card…last_img read more

A Good Year for Indiana Christmas Tree Growers

first_img By Gary Truitt – Dec 24, 2013 The dull Tree FarmA Good Year for Indiana Christmas Tree Growers This Christmas season, more and more Hoosier households gathered around a real Christmas tree. This made for very good year for Christmas tree farmers. Tom and Carrie Dull of Dull’s Tree Farm in Thorntown realized early this season that they did not have the supply to meet what was an increasing demand for real Christmas trees.  Since it takes 7 – 8 years to grow a tree, the industry cannot respond quickly to increases in demand. Dulls exhausted their field supply of trees and brought in cut trees from other growers to help meet the demand.Other growers from around the nation reported that their sales were also up about 20% this year.  “Sales are ahead of last year. An increase in interest to purchase local grown trees direct from the farm,” said Tom Langlais of Thomaston, CT. Steve Meier of Jackson MO reported strong sales from the beginning of the season on, “This has been the strongest first weekend in over 12 years.”Oregon tree farmer Bob Schaefer said the environmental benefits of real trees are attracting more people. This year the Indiana Department of environmental management actually recommended that Hoosiers buy a real tree. Schaefer said artificial trees are not good for the environment, “It’s a petroleum-based product, you know. It’s made in China. So it has to be shipped over here. Just the production and the shipping of the product is probably not the most environmentally sound thing in the world.” Nationally about 30 million Christmas trees were sold this year, and much of the land used for trees cannot be used for other purposes, “A lot of Christmas trees are planted on marginal farm ground, but it’s good for Christmas trees. So it’s utilizing ground that might otherwise not be very productive.”Schaefer added real Christmas trees can also be recycled, “Recycling is really encouraged. All of our trees have recycling information on them, and we certainly hope people will recycle them. You throw an artificial tree in the landfill, and it’s going to be there 10,000 years from now.” After the holidays, trees are recycled throughout the country into mulch and compost, and even used to prevent beach erosion and provide fish habitat.For each tree harvested, three seedlings are planted in its place.  One acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen needed for 18 people. Plus, tree farms provide habitat for wildlife.

Mauritanian blogger freed after being held for nearly six years

first_imgNews RSF_en Follow the news on Mauritania Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is delighted to report that Mohamed Cheikh Ould Mohamed Mkhaitir, a Mauritian blogger who had been held for more than five and a half years and who was originally sentenced to death for apostasy, was released at dawn yesterday. RSF backs joint op-ed by 120 West African media and journalists calling for Beninese journalist’s release News Help by sharing this information News July 6, 2020 Find out more MauritaniaAfrica Protecting journalists ImprisonedFreedom of expression News Mauritanian reporter held for two days over Facebook post May 20, 2021 Find out more July 30, 2019 Mauritanian blogger freed after being held for nearly six years Organisation to go further MauritaniaAfrica Protecting journalists ImprisonedFreedom of expression When contacted by RSF after his release, Mkhaitir thanked all the organizations who have been campaigning on his behalf ever since his arrest in January 2014. He was arrested for a Facebook post criticizing the use of religion to justify discriminatory practices against the blacksmith community to which he belongs.The death sentence he received in December 2014 on a charge of apostasy was eventually commuted to two years in prison by a Nouadhibou appeal court in November 2017. He should then have been released but many demonstrations calling for his execution had been held during his trial and the authorities continued to detain him on “security grounds”, denying him access to his family and lawyers.“We are deeply relieved that he has finally been freed after being held for more than five and a half years in almost total isolation,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “For nothing more than a social network post, he was subjected to a terrible ordeal that violated a decision by his own country’s judicial system. This blogger was francophone Africa’s longest-held citizen-journalist. We thank all those who contributed to his release.”Mkhaitir had made formal statements of repentance on Facebook and TV in the past few weeks. This was the condition that was set for his release after a meeting at the start of July between outgoing President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz and several religious officials. The new president, former defence minister Mohamed Ould Ghazouani, is to be sworn in on 1 August.Mkhaitir’s release was the outcome of a major international campaign to which RSF, many other NGOs and his lawyers all contributed. RSF co-signed two open letters to President Aziz urging him to end Mkhaitir’s detention.Mainly because of Mkhaitir’s arbitrary detention, Mauritania has fallen 46 places in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index since 2016 and is ranked 94th out of 180 countries in the 2019 Index. Aside from Tanzania, no other country has fallen so sharply in the same period. March 13, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Congolese academic freed, but declared persona non grata and expelled

first_img Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent November 27, 2020 Find out more Reports News News to go further BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist Follow the news on Rwanda Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders hailed the release this morning of Congolese university professor Idesbald Byabuze Katabaruka but deplored the fact that he was then declared persona non grata by the state prosecutor and was immediately escorted by two policemen and an immigration officer to the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.Public prosecutor’s office representative Boniface Mudengeri had announced on 19 March that all charges were being dropped against Byabuze Katabaruka, who had been held in Kigali’s main prison since 16 February. The order for his release was issued yesterday by the president of the Kagarama court in the Kigali district of Kicukiro although it was not carried out until today.______________________________01.03.2007 – Call for release of ailing Congolese university professor held in Kigali prisonReporters Without Borders called today for the release of Congolese university professor Idesbald Byabuze Katabaruka because of the tenuous nature of the charges against him and the risk that detention poses to his frail health. He has been held since 16 February in the Rwandan capital of Kigali in connection with a 2005 report critical of President Paul Kagame which he says he did not write. On 23 February, a court ordered him held for 30 days pending trial.“This distressing case highlights the Rwandan government’s extreme sensitivity to criticism,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We would like to remind the government that a peaceful debate involving conflicting views is the sign of a vibrant democracy, but it is unfair and disproportionate to throw a man in prison because of a critical report if it does not explicitly incite violence or hatred.”The press freedom organisation added: “Katabaruka should be freed because he agrees to appear before a court to answer the charges and because the conditions in which he is being held pose a major danger for his health.”Katabaruka was giving a class at the Adventist Lay University of Kigali (UNILAK) on 16 February when a police officer came and told him he had to “answer a few questions.” After being interrogated for five hours at national police headquarters he was taken to a police station in the Kigali neighbourhood of Kacyiru, where he spent the night in a cell.He was then taken to the Kicukiro police station, and then to the police station in Gikondo, where a prosecutor told him he would be tried for endangering state security, “segregation” and “sectarianism.” It was a court in Kagarama which, on 23 February, ordered him held for 30 days.Also a professor at the Catholic University of Bukavu in Sud-Kivu, a province in the southeast of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Katabaruka was responsible for launching the newspaper Mashariki News, of which two issues have so far appeared. Over the years, he has written a number of alarming reports about the humanitarian situation on the border between Rwanda and the DRC.His name appeared as one of the authors of an 8 June 2005 report for the Missionary Service News Agency (MISNA) entitled “Rwanda Alert.” The other two authors were an Italian nun and a Congolese nun with Catholic missions in the east of the DRC. It was a scathing assessment of Kagame and the ruling Rwandan Patriotic Front (FPR) since Kagame became president in 1994.When Reporters Without Borders met Katabaruka in Kigali central prison (also called “1930”), he said the appearance of his name on the report was “unfortunate” and he was not responsible for its content. “They must have put my name at the foot of the report because, at the time, I was supervising some of the work of these nuns.”At his first court appearance, in Gikondo, Katabaruka asked the court “to accept my modest and true words of pardon, love and reconciliation” between Rwanda and the DRC “which have so much need of this.” As he had three quarters of his stomach removed in an operation, Katabaruka needs a special diet and medicines which he has not been getting ever since he was put in prison.

Only 360 days left for the Christmas post

first_imgAdvertisement Christmas may have gone the way of the turkey carcass, but for most of us, there are still a few days left of indulgence before we head back to the workplace. For the men and women of the An Post depot on Limerick’s Dock Road, it has been a hectic few weeks but any hopes of a relaxing New Year are tempered by the knowledge that there are only 360 days to the next Christmas delivery. by Aoife McLaughlinSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected]’S the most wonderful time of the year… there’ll be parties for hosting, cards and presents for posting…Indeed, it is the most wonderful time of year, and as many of us counted down the last few hours left at work and children counted the “sleeps” left until Mr. Claus left specially requested gifts beneath fairy lit trees, lets not forget those busy workers dressed in green, who have sorted tirelessly through towers of packages and presents while we slept.Big boxes, small parcels, teddy shaped packages, gifts of love and sentiment came from far and wide to greet us when we woke.And, no this wasn’t the work of Father Christmas and his merry little elves, this was just the daily routine for the 220 staff at the An Post Depot on Limerick’s Dock Road.Postmen and women call to each and every one of our houses up to 261 times a year or more. With a brimful mailbag and bicycle in tow, they deliver our post in the early hours of the morning, often greeted by a bark from a disgruntled pet pooch or groggy but courteous hello as we leave our homes to shuffle to work and school.But during the Christmas period, the mail deliveries start to swell with cards and presents 98 per cent of which, will be processed, sorted and delivered in just 24 hours.From postbox to mailboxAs a woman who heavily relies on last minute deliveries from online clothing companies, logging on daily in anticipation to “track my item”, I was intrigued by the whole postal process. So, I took a trip to the Limerick post office depot for some insight into this important service.I was met at the front gate of the Dock road hub, by Acting Delivery Service Manager Brian Murphy. Although it is their busiest time of year, Brian kindly explained just what happens after we drop those envelopes into that iconic green box.“We normally deal with around 100,000 items a night but, at Christmas time you are looking at up to half a million in one night,” says Brian.Mail is collected from the various post boxes and post offices around the city and county and are brought by truck to the depot from 1pm up until 8pm on any given day. The mail is then sorted at the depot to either go to Cork for letter processing or Portlaoise for packages.“All the mail is gone out of here at 8 o’clock in the evening and we have trucks returning from 11pm until 6 in the morning. We then process the mail over the course of the night for the delivery staff to deliver it to your door in the morning,” he explains.“That’s all in the same night and we get the mail back here to Limerick from Cork and Portlaoise and we then sort it into what’s called a ‘route sort’. The timeline for packages and letters are the same and we have 98 per cent next day delivery in the country. Two hundred and twenty staff have been involved in that process.”Up to 87 postmen and postwomen deliver mail everyday to 900 houses each in the city and 400 each in the county.TrendsThe postal service has experienced a lot of change in recent years, especially with the rise of e-billing, which has had knock-on affect on staffing.“There has been a decrease in staff for the past several years since the downturn. There was an increase before that and in the past several years we have seen a decrease. There would be reviews done here on all levels every three years and the whole office has been redesigned to accommodate the volume of mail we currently have,” said Brian.As the service has seen a considerable decline in letters over the years, online shopping has been on the rise, particularly for clothes and books.And the post office staff are the first to notice the new trend.“We are seeing a lot of these small little Chinese packets. I am not quite sure what people are ordering – they are like electronics from China but there has been a huge increase in that lately.”Whilst on the subject of mysterious packages, the Limerick depot has often played host to sting operations for Customs and Excise, tracking incoming or outgoing packages suspected of containing illegal substances.“The guards would come here on a regular basis waiting for some person to come sign for a package, a package that the drug squad would have been tracking.”As my interest peaks, I ask Brian what kind of things staff have seen come into the post office. I imagine it maybe easy to tell what exactly is in a package by it’s shape. I picture all sorts of obviously shaped items spilling from the back of the delivery trucks but, to my disappointment, I am assured that the only time post office workers see what is in a package is when the item is undeliverable due to an incorrect address and the lack of return-to-sender details.“There are definitely some unusual items that come through the post. We actually have an Aladdin’s Cave over in the Return Letter Office”, Brian reveals.Aladdin’s CaveAnd without further ado I am brought across the yard, up two flights of stairs to “the cave”. It is here I meet Operations Manager, Adrian Gordon.I ask Adrian and Brian about the most unusual things they have unearthed at the Returned Letters Office.They show me a glass cupboard with a toy car and some brick-a-brack when I’m distracted by Adrian brandishing some sort of animal horn in front of me. “It’s the horn of the last unicorn in Ireland,” he jokes.As it transpires the horn was that of a North Kerry bull and not of a unicorn. It was almost a foot long, hollow and formed from hair with a black and cream marbling effect.“This came through about a year or two ago. The majority of items we get here are undeliverable and we would try and return them to sender but if we can’t find the sender’s details well then we end up with them here. This cow’s horn would be one of the most memorable we have seen come through. We get literally everything I suppose you could say from a needle to a small anchor.”I’m then presented with a clear plastic zip file with what appears to be old letters.What I didn’t expect was how old the actually letters are. I find myself holding an ancient looking envelope with an evenly ripped edging across the top, that only a letter opener could inflict. The paper has yellowed with age and a dark navy stamp features a white outline of King George of England’s head. In beautifully inked scroll it reads “sender: SS Olympic” and is dated 1934.“I believe the Olympic was a sister ship of the Titanic. It was found in a packet of old letters that someone was posting to somebody else but it was undeliverable. Obviously it’s quite old, so we would hold on to that,” explains Adrian.I was also shown a  ten dollar bond certificate issued in the United States to raise money for the Irish state. It was dated 1920.Both Brian and Adrian explain the importance ensuring that an address is correct and that all mail has a proper return address.“We try to return the items to senders but if we have no senders details, the next step, generally with items we can’t return, like clothing, books or CDs, is to donate them to charity. If it is stuff like papers or items of a personal nature, we will destroy them.Obviously with items like these we will hold them, hoping that at some time in the future, we will get them returned.”Asking have they ever had a case where an unusual item has been returned, I am told the story of a Nazi compass from the 1936 Berlin Olympics that found its way into the “Aladdin’s Cave” at the Limerick Depot for four years.“We did an item on a television programme last year and we had some Nazi memorabilia. A guy actually recognized the compass from the television programme and once we were actually able to authenticate that it was his, we were able to return it to him.“We are the most trusted organization in the country, so we don’t want to be opening people’s letters or packages and that’s why we are encouraging everybody to put a return address on it so if we can’t deliver it, we will be able return it back to the sender”, Adrian explains.As my visit draws to a close, there is just one question I have to ask, given the time of year it is: “Does Santa Clause get all his Santa letters?”Brian tell me they see thousands of Santa letters each year and that Santa himself uses An Post to reply to every single child.“All of Santa’s letters get posted out to every child, the Sunday before Christmas Day… he does have a little help from the Post office elves though.” Email Linkedin Facebook Twittercenter_img Print WhatsApp NewsOnly 360 days left for the Christmas postBy Staff Reporter – January 1, 2015 873 Previous articleNurses to vote for industrial actionNext articleLarge flash and loud bang linked to Limerick powercut Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Veteran Oklahoma police officer killed, rookie in critical condition, after suspect shoots both in the head

first_imgcarlballou/iStockBy CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(TULSA, Okla.) — A veteran Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer died Tuesday after a traffic stop went wrong.Six weeks after Officer Aurash Zarkeshan completed training with the Tulsa Police Department, he made a regular traffic stop on East 21st Street early Monday morning, police said.After Zarkeshan ran David Anthony Ware‘s information into the system, he called for backup.Sargent Craig Johnson arrived at the scene.Ware refused to comply with officers’ commands to step out of his car, said Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin at a press conference on Monday.Johnson displayed a stun gun and asked Ware to get out of the car 12 times before firing. Franklin said the stun gun was not effective and Zarkeshan also pepper-sprayed Ware.A struggle ensued and Ware pulled out a gun and fired “several shots at close range,” striking both officers in the head, said Franklin.“The driver slowly walked away from the vehicle and went to another car that was waiting for him,” Franklin said.Both officers were taken to the hospital in critical condition.Johnson, a 15-year veteran, died on Tuesday afternoon. He leaves behind a wife and two young sons.His family was presented with a Purple Heart for his service in the line of duty.Ware, 33, and his accomplice 29-year-old Matthew Hall were arrested.Prosecutors added first-degree murder to Ware’s case on Tuesday in addition to two counts of shooting with intent to kill and criminal possession of a weapon charges. Hall faces accomplice to murder and accomplice to felony charges.Ware is expected to appear before a judge on Thursday and Hall is expected in court on September 2, according to online records.They are both being held without bond in Tulsa County jail, according to online records.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Feeding habits of bluenose warehou, Hyperoglyphe antarctica (Carmichael, 1819) (Centrolophidae) at seamounts of the Southern Atlantic.

first_imgDiet of bluenose warehou, Hyperoglyphe antarctica, was investigated from samples collected during commercial fishing (trawling and longlining) on seamounts in the Tristan da Cunha EEZ in the South Atlantic Ocean. Bluenose warehou (57–123 cm TL, N = 309) was found to forage on a broad range of prey, dominated by mesopelagic cephalopods (squid families Onychoteuthidae and Histioteuthidae, Pholidoteuthis massyae and octopus Haliphron atlanticus), Thaliacea (salps and pyrosomes) and a sternoptychid Maurolicus inventionis. Bluenose warehou exhibited a range of foraging strategies from browsing on dense aggregations of passively drifting jelly-like zooplankton to catching mobile nektonic fish. Bluenose also consumed body parts of the gelatinous giant octopus H. atlanticus, which may have been scavenged or predated. The study indicates that bluenose warehou has an unusually broad prey range for a teleost. The diversity of prey and high flexibility of the hunting strategies permitted the bluenose warehou to prosper in the highly changeable and dynamic environments of underwater seamounts.last_img read more
