O2 Inside Line – Six Nations 2012, episode 3

first_imgThursday Feb 23, 2012 O2 Inside Line – Six Nations 2012, episode 3 One of the most anticipated Six Nations games of the season takes place this weekend as England host Wales at Twickenham with both sides currently unbeaten. We catch up with O2 Inside Line this week to see what’s been going on. England have made four changes for this game, with Manu Tuilagi coming into the midfield to join Brad Barritt, and Owen Farrell shifting over to flyhalf in the absence of injured Charlie Hodgson.Barrit and Tuilagi, both known for the physically, may well prove the key to England halting the fire power the Welsh backs have out wide and in their centers. On today’s O2 Inside Line we see Tuilagi cooking up a pancake storm with Toby Flood, who moves onto the bench.Ben Youngs shifts to the bench after an apparent drop in form, with Lee Dickson taking up the number nine role, while Geoff Parling gets a start in front of him, with Tom Palmer being dropped.During the week the forwards did some intensive cardio that replicated match day situations, where they were required to get up off the floor rapidly, working on their speed and agility. We can see how that went in the video, as well as the usual team banter among the players, specifically directed at new captain Chris Robshaw, who seems to be a lot busier these days. England team:15 Ben Foden, 14 Chris Ashton, 13 Manu Tuilagi, 12 Brad Barritt, 11 David Strettle; 10 Owen Farrell, 9 Lee Dickson, 1 Alex Corbisiero, 2 Dylan Hartley, 3 Dan Cole, 4 Mouritz Botha, 5 Geoff Parling, 6 Tom Croft, 7 Chris Robshaw, 8 Ben MorganReplacements: 16 Rob Webber, 17 Matt Stevens, 18 Courtney Lawes, 19 Phil Dowson, 20 Ben Youngs, 21 Toby Flood, 22 Mike BrownWales team:15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Jonathan Davies, Jamie Roberts, 11 George North, 10 Rhys Priestland, 9 Mike Phillips, 1, Gethin Jenkins, 2 Ken Owens, 3 Adam Jones, 4 Alun-Wyn Jones, 5 Ian Evans, 6 Dan Lydiate, 7 Sam Warburton, 8 Toby FaletauReplacements: 16 Richard Hibbard, 17 Paul James, 18 Ryan Jones, 19 Justin Tipuric, 20 Lloyd Williams, 21 Stephen Jones, 22 Scott Williams To get the inside scoop on the squad, as well as fun features, match analysis and up to the minute player interviews with presenters Austin Healey and Abi Griffiths, sign up for alerts and watch O2 Inside Line on RFU TV at / #O2InsideLineADVERTISEMENT 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.

Journalist disputes court’s legality as trial opens

first_imgNews Organisation October 26, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist disputes court’s legality as trial opens ————————-25.10.2010Unjust trial : Preposterous charges, arbitrary arrests and physical attacksReporters Without Borders firmly condemns the preposterous charges brought against the Sabaa news agency reporter Abdul Ilah Haydar Shae, whose trial before a special state security court is due to start today, and calls for his immediate release.A specialist in covering Al-Qaeda, Shae has been charged by the attorney-general with inciting the murder of the president and his son, “belonging to a rebel group seeking to attack the country’s security” and “supporting it through the media and encouraging young people to join it.” His lawyers, who have not been allowed to visit him since his arrest in August, have said they will boycott the trial on the grounds that it is illegal and unjust.“Shae has been detained in an iniquitous manner that contravenes all the legal principles in force in Yemen and his physical condition has been undermined by mistreatment, torture and solitary confinement,” Reporters Without Borders said. “As a party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights since 1987, Yemen should respect his right to a fair trial.”Initially arrested on a Sanaa street on 11 July, Shae was released after being interrogated for several hours. He was rearrested on 16 August, placed in a Sanaa prison and then taken to a detention centre run by the intelligence services.According to his lawyers, he bore the marks of blows on various parts of his body when he was taken before a court on 22 September, and one of his teeth was broken. The court ordered him held for another 30 days on the grounds that further investigation was needed. That deadline expired on 22 October.Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about the continual attacks on journalists, especially by members of the security forces, who should be protecting them.Al Jazeera cameraman Mohammed Al-Said and correspondent Hamdy Al-Bakary were manhandled by police and briefly detained in the southern city of Aden on 24 October while covering the trial of five men accused of bombing the Al-Wahda sports club in Aden earlier this month. The authorities did not offer any explanation for the incident.Ghazi Al-Alawi, a member of the staff of the Aden-based newspaper Al-Oumana Al-Ahliya and a correspondent for the Al-Masdar Online news website, was beaten up by gunmen while covering an independence day celebration organized by the secessionist South Yemen Movement in Al-Habilin on 14 October. His camera was broken and he was taken to Radfan hospital for treatment to his injuries,The assault took place just hours after his newspaper reported that President Ali Abdallah Saleh had met secretly with Ali Mounassar Mohammed, the secretary of the opposition Yemeni Socialist Party in Aden and leader of the South Yemen Movement, who was one of Alawi’s assailants. Journalist and human rights activist Tawakol Abdulsalam Karman, the head of Women Journalists Without Chains, was detained for three hours on 12 October for organizing and participating in a demonstration in solidarity with residents of the Jaachen neighbourhood in Sanaa who had been evicted by Sheikh Nafedh.A special court for press and publication matters fined Al-Nass managing editor Oussama Ghalib and reporter Fawzy Al-Kahily 50,000 real (165 euros) on 9 October on a charge of insulting and libelling the head of the Al-Mithaq Foundation for Publications, Adil Mohamed Qaid, by publishing documents in issue No. 20 of 2008 implicating members of the foundation in corruption. News News On the first day of his trial yesterday before a state security court, journalist Abdul Ilah Haydar Shae challenged the court’s legality and said those responsible for his abduction and forced disappearance should also be on trial.His lawyers, Abdel Rahman Barman and Khaled Al-Anssi, attended the hearing as observers and reaffirmed their support for him, but refused to participate as his defence on the grounds that the trial was illegal. It was adjourned until 2 November.“This court is utterly illegal,” Barman told Reporters Without Borders. “Article 49 of the constitution forbids setting up special courts to try people. Furthermore, Shae was arrested and imprisoned without any official grounds being given. He was beaten in front of his family and forcibly taken away at night to an unknown location. His personal effects were seized by the police and furniture was smashed because of the violence used in the raid. And then a month went by without anyone knowing what had happened to him.”Abducted from his home by a special security unit on 16 August, Shae was held incommunicado for 34 days. The court ordered him moved to a state security detention centre on 22 September for interrogation. Barman said these detention centres had no legal basis, either under Yemeni law or under international law. They are not subject to any judicial control.Barman added: “Shae was kept in solitary confinement for a further month, in a room without a toilet. He was tortured and has a broken tooth. At no time during his detention have we had access to his case file or been able to question him. Human rights and Yemeni law have been flouted. This court was created by presidential decision. It is a direct creation of the executive. The prosecutor is judge and jury.”Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to free Shae at once and to abolish the special courts.

Journalist murdered by drug gang in Ciudad Juarez

first_img News May 5, 2021 Find out more Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Organisation Reporters Without Borders today voiced its dismay at the murder of journalist Armando Rodriguez, of El Diario, the largest privately-owned daily in Ciudad Juarez, northern Mexico, who was shot dead outside his home yesterday.Rodriguez, aged 40, became the latest victim in a bloody war between the country’s major drug cartels which is centred on Ciudad Juarez, in Chihuahua State, with more than 1,300 casualties since the start of the year.The journalist, a crime specialist for the past 14 years, was leaving his home to drive his eight year old daughter to school when an unidentified gunman ambushed and shot him dead at point blank range before running to a nearby vehicle where accomplices were waiting. Editor of El Diario, Pedro Torres, told Reporters Without Borders that Rodriguez had received a threatening message on his mobile phone in February 2008 telling him to “tone it down”. As a result, he was transferred to El Paso for two months for his safety but on his return he had insisted on resuming work without any special protection. “First of all we want to voice our solidarity with Armando Rodriguez’s family in their grief for this vile crime that plunges Mexico yet further into the terror of the war of the cartels,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“This crime specialist was in the front line of this savage conflict, which has made Mexico one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists”.“We welcome the authorities’ decision to take on this case through the federal prosecutor’s office. We hope that the inquiry will swiftly identify the killers and those who sent them, thus showing the government’s determination to effectively fight the impunity that sadly so often prevails in Mexico”, it concluded.The journalist’s colleagues are convinced that the murder was linked to his work but have not been able to link it to any particular reports. However Carlos Huerta Munoz, a reporter on the local daily El Norte, pointed out that Rodriguez had on the previous day reported on the killing of two local police officers. A severed head had also been found on 6 November on a monument in the Journalist’s Square in the centre of Ciudad Juarez, which the city’s media took to be a direct threat against them.

Three journalists murdered in one week in Mexico

first_img Organisation Reports MexicoAmericas Receive email alerts RSF_en The western hemisphere’s deadliest country for journalists in 2015, Mexico is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. to go further The past week’s third victim was Gerardo Nieto Alvarez, the editor of El Tábano, a local newspaper, whose body was found in Comonfort, in the central state of Guanajuato, on 26 June. His throat had been cut. This is the first time a journalist has been murdered in such a violent manner in Guanajuato.The prosecutor in charge of investigating Nieto’s murder immediately ruled out any possibility of a link with his journalism, eliciting protests from his family, who told Reporters Without Borders they were convinced he was killed because of his work as a journalist.His son told Reporters Without Borders: “My father’s laptop has disappeared. It contained all the information he was going to publish. The prosecutor has not said anything about that.”Veracruz and Oaxaca are among Mexico’s deadliest states for journalists. The high rate of violent crime in these two states is blamed on the organized crime presence and local government corruption.Three other journalists have been murdered so far this year in Mexico: Moisés Sánchez Cerezo in Veracruz, and Abel Manuel Bautista Raymundo and Armando Saldaña Morales in Oaxaca. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 13, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Local radio presenter Filadelfo Sánchez Sarmiento was gunned down by two men yesterday as he was leaving his radio station in Miahuatlan, a town in the southern state of Oaxaca, becoming the third journalist to be killed in Mexico in the space of a week. The other two were murdered in Veracruz and Guanajuato states. News News Sánchez, who worked for La Favorita 103.3 FM, had reported receiving threats, during elections last month. In a Facebook post on 6 June, he wrote: “Death threats against me again, and the announcement that the radio will be burned down on Sunday 7 June…”Relatives also reported that he and one of his colleagues received several death threats in September 2014 from persons close to Miahuatlan’s mayor without any investigation ever being carried out.Oaxaca’s governor said in a press release that he had asked the state prosecutor to “deploy all the human and legal resources necessary for carrying out the investigation and obtaining the arrest of these responsible for the radio announcer’s murder.”“We are appalled by all these murders of journalists in Mexico,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “Three deaths in a week – when will the violence stop?“We call on the Oaxaca, Veracruz and Guanajuato authorities to ensure that impartial, independent and thorough investigations are carried out and that those responsible for these despicable crimes are arrested. We also urge the authorities to make sure investigators do not systematically rule a possible link to the victim’s journalistic work right from the start of the investigation.”The body of Juan Mendoza Delgado, a local news website editor based in Medellín de Bravo, in the eastern state of Veracruz, was found in a Veracruz morgue yesterday, a day after he was reported missing. His body was reportedly taken to the morgue after he was run down by a car.Just a few days ago, the governor of Veracruz was very critical of journalists, accusing them of being linked to organized crime and warning them to “behave themselves.” News Follow the news on Mexico MexicoAmericas Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state May 5, 2021 Find out more July 3, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three journalists murdered in one week in Mexico NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Subscribe STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  California’s housing crisis is a complex problem requiring thoughtful and innovative solutions. So far, our representatives in Sacramento have failed to deliver. The legislature’s answer to the housing problem has amounted to a ham-handed effort to rezone every city in the state for multifamily housing. This myopic quick-fix has encroached on local control of our community and undermined years of painstaking city planning. Pasadena ought to demand more. Our housing solutions have to be multifaceted and interdimensional, taking account of the social, environmental, and economic consequences of our choices. We cannot solve one problem only to create another.One creative proposal being floated at both the state and local levels is to allow affordable housing on religious institution properties. When the idea first came before the Pasadena Planning Commission last year, I was inspired by the passion of the measure’s proponents and impressed with their out-of-the-box thinking. This is a great example of taking what we have and making the best use of it, marrying religious institutions’ mission of helping others with the community’s need for available land to build affordable units.At the same time, we have to consider the special limitations on government to regulate the activities of religious institutions. The First Amendment prevents governmental entities, including state and local authorities, from making any “law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The contours of the Free Exercise Clause have evolved over time and continue to be subject to a great deal of litigation. Before adopting by-right development of affordable housing on religious institution properties, we have to account for the constitutional limitations on the government’s ability to regulate church-owned properties.One particularly heated current First Amendment debate is the extent to which religious institutions are permitted to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons. Although the State of California prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of LGBT+ identity, it remains an open question whether the State has the power to enforce those statutes against religious institutions.Until recently, the U. S. Supreme Court held that a state could enforce a “neutral law of general applicability” even if that law had the incidental effect of burdening the free exercise of religion. A 2018 case, however, seemed to shift away from that principle. In Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the Supreme Court held that a state commission improperly enforced Colorado’s non-discrimination law against a baker who refused to provide a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The Court stopped short of declaring that a state can never enforce such laws against religious adherents, but it found that special consideration must be given to religious objections even if the law is facially neutral and applicable to all.Then, last fall, a U. S. district court in Los Angeles dismissed a lawsuit against Pasadena’s Fuller Seminary, finding that Fuller is entitled to deny housing and admission to students on the basis of sexual orientation. The case is likely to end up before the Supreme Court. For now, the takeaway is that it is far from clear whether a state or local government can prohibit a religious institution from denying housing to LGBT+ persons.That uncertainty must give us pause before creating a special zone for church-owned housing.Another concern is the federal Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000, which prohibits local zoning authorities from “substantially burdening” the exercise of religion through land use regulations. Religious institutions have used the law to challenge seemingly routine land use decisions It is not far-fetched to imagine that Pasadena could find itself defending a religious discrimination suit for, say, making a discretionary decision to limit the height of a church’s planned residential development.California’s churches, mosques, and synagogues offer tantalizing opportunities to open up valuable land for the construction of affordable housing. With dialogue and collaboration between our elected representatives, stakeholders, and communities of faith, this could be one solution that works for all Californians. But we cannot create zones of lawful discrimination against a group of our neighbors who already experience housing instability at disproportionate rates. We also cannot create pockets of land that are beyond the reach of the local planning authority.One option may be to assist religious institutions that wish to develop affordable housing in transferring ownership of the affected parcel to a non-profit holding company with an expressly non-religious purpose. Other possibilities will likely present themselves as we continue the conversation.In the meantime, we must move with caution and not rush to solve one pressing problem only to create equally unacceptable downstream consequences.Jason Lyon is a commercial litigation attorney at Hahn & Hahn LLP and a member of Pasadena’s Planning Commission.
