Famous Simon Shaw run from the Lions Tour 2005

first_imgTuesday Nov 27, 2007 Famous Simon Shaw run from the Lions Tour 2005 After posting the clip of Andries Bekker man-handling some of the smaller guys, there was a lot of talk about Bekker’s height, and in particular, comparing him to Simon Shaw. That brought back memories of this great moment from the 2005 British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand. In a midweek game against Manawatu in Palmeston North, the touring side ran riot, running in 17 tries on their way to a 109-6 victory against the smaller provincial side. After a Shane Williams try that took the score over the half century mark, big England second-rower Simon Shaw took the ball beautifully from the restart, taking off for an inspirational 55m rampage that would see him tackled just short of the line. The ball was presented cleanly for always present teamate Neil Back, who was close at hand to finish off this classic try that was started by the skill and pace of the big man Shaw.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

¿Muy grande para fallar?

first_imgComo hemos escrito antes, el capitalismo en esta era globalizada de alta tecnología, se encuentra en un callejón sin salida. Para que funcione, necesita expandirse. Para expandirse, necesita clientes. Pero la producción, que está cada vez más robotizada y de alta tecnología no necesita de muchos trabajadoras/es. De hecho, para las/os trabajadores esta ha sido una época de despidos y salarios bajos, no la transición de la clase obrera a “clase media”. Entonces, ¿quién va a comprarlo todo? El capitalismo se enfrenta a un callejón sin salida, sin ninguna escapatoria. Si llega una crisis financiera, ¿que va a pasar? ¿Algún presidente estadounidense, conservador o liberal, podría resistir la presión para evitar que se arruinaran los grandes bancos, lo requeriría infusiones de billones de dólares producto del duro trabajo del pueblo? La regulación de los bancos no es suficiente. Es un pequeño vendaje en una herida profunda. Lo que realmente se necesita es un gobierno dirigido por el pueblo que se apodere de los bancos y las corporaciones y utilice la riqueza que le han robado a las/os trabajadores para reconstruir nuestras ciudades, la infraestructura y el medio ambiente que ha sido tan destruido por el sistema de ganancias. Para eso es necesario mirar más allá de las elecciones y construir un movimiento revolucionario contra el capitalismo y por el socialismo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Los defectos evidentes del capitalismo están alimentando dos movimientos políticos en los EUA. La extrema derecha, que está detrás de Trump por ahora, pero que probablemente gire hacia Cruz, quiere aumentar la represión frente al inminente desastre. El movimiento más liberal, e incluso la izquierda, está mirando hacia Sanders para que enfrente a Wall Street, al menos para regular los grandes bancos. Algo como el movimiento de Sanders no había sucedido en este país desde hace mucho, mucho tiempo, y muestra la gravedad de la crisis existente. Eso es por lo que los políticos en Washington y los financieros de Wall Street están preocupados en este momento. Tomó millones de millones de dólares la última vez para que la economía capitalista trabajase de nuevo – y no ha funcionado muy bien, con excepción de los multimillonarios quienes sí se han beneficiado. Pero para los demás, ni aquí, ni en el resto del mundo capitalista. El desempleo sigue siendo alto, especialmente entre las personas oprimidas y jóvenes. Los salarios siguen siendo bajos. “Demasiado grandes para caer”. ¿Cuántas veces hemos oído eso recientemente? La Junta de la Reserva Federal dice que cinco bancos estadounidenses son demasiado grandes para caer: JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Bank of New York Mellon y State Street. No todos son nombres reconocidos, pero sí son grandes. Juntos, tienen casi $9 billones de dólares en activos.¿De dónde provino toda esa riqueza? Después de todo, es sólo papel, o barrotes de oro, o números electrónicos, que no tendrían valor si no hubiera cientos de millones de trabajadoras/es por todo el mundo creando los productos y servicios que ese dinero puede comprar.Sin embargo, de algún modo estos bancos pueden afirmar que es de ellos. Y tienen miedo de que gran parte de esa riqueza pueda evaporarse. Los productos que se pueden comprar con el dinero no pueden evaporarse. Pero pueden permanecer por mucho tiempo en los almacenes si la gente no puede pagarlos. Y las personas que prestan servicios no pueden evaporarse. Sin embargo, pueden perder su puesto de trabajo.¿Cómo pudo pasar esto? Pasa si una crisis financiera conduce a la parálisis de la economía. Sucedió en 2008-2009 y podría ocurrir de nuevo. Y si pasara, estos bancos y un montón de otras entidades capitalistas “demasiado grandes para caer” le pedirían al gobierno estadounidense que los rescatara – otra vez. Todos los tipos de medios artificiales se han tratado para darle vida a la economía. Principalmente, esto ha significado amasar enormes cantidades de deuda con la esperanza de que esto le dará el sistema la sacudida necesaria. En su lugar, se ha convertido en una horca alrededor de sus cuellos. Cuanto más grande es la deuda, más dura es la caída.last_img read more

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 17, 2017

first_imgHome News Feed Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 17, 2017 Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 17, 2017 By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 17, 2017 Facebook Twitter Absolutely no changes to the forecast and the pattern for the rest of this week through Saturday. Sunshine and blue sky will dominate and we will see temps slowly but surely move upward. WE will be near normal by midweek (tomorrow) and above normal to finish the week and weekend. Winds kick up late week, and we will see low humidity levels alongside excellent evaporation rates.Our next front does try and move in on Sunday, but still has very little left in the tank as it arrives. As such, we are leaving our forecast basically alone, except we are dropping our coverage down to about 30% for Sunday. We will stay warm and windy that day.Next week still looks mostly dry. However, we have one-time frame we are watching closely this morning. Some models late yesterday tried to bring a secondary surge of moisture up that old Sunday frontal boundary, bringing in some light rain for Monday afternoon, evening, and into early Tuesday. At this time, we think that is unlikely, and as such, we are leaving our forecast alone. However, if we see some other models jump on the bandwagon, it will be worth another look. So, for now, we are just running with the status quo, and looking for a dry week right on through the start of next weekend.We do still see a nice strong front for the start of the extended period, for the 29th. This front may linger into the 30th and looks potent. IT could bring anywhere from .25”-1” of moisture to about 80% of the state. There will be significantly colder air coming in behind that front.But, for the rest of this week, we continue to see a significant harvest window opening – wider and wider!!

Alternative France-Russia Year to address civil society’s omission from official event

first_img News May 5, 2021 Find out more RussiaEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information News January 28, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Alternative France-Russia Year to address civil society’s omission from official event Organisation May 21, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Russia The historic links between France and Russia are part of a long tradition of exchanges and mutual fascination. Our two countries maintain intense cultural, economic and strategic relations that have had their ups and downs and, of late, a vigorous revival.The most recent developments point clearly to a rapprochement between the two states, one that bears the regrettable mark of Realpolitik (sale of Mistral-type warships, industrial and financial contracts and the development of stronger links between Total, EDF and GDF-Suez on the one hand and Gazprom on the other). The lack of the rule of law in Russia does not trouble France’s biggest corporations.To celebrate their friendship and cultural closeness, France and Russia are paying tribute to each other in 2010 in 12 months of exchanges called the France-Russia Year. Prestigious art exhibitions, conferences, concerts and theatre presentations will offer French and Russians a chance to sample the pleasures of each other’s culture. Such an initiative is of a kind that cannot be criticised.Except that an essential dimension has been completely eclipsed by this dazzling event.The missing dimension is civil society. It has not been invited to the party. It is not represented, or only in a very limited manner. And in so doing, Russian reality that has been stripped of one of its most vibrant, most persistent and most humanistic dimensions.We, the representatives of several human rights organisations, believe you cannot just ignore certain realities, no matter how disturbing they may be. Russia, like every nation, is not limited to its government officials, its cultural monuments and its uniform spokesmen.For this reason, to render Russia in all its complexity, to recognise its various voices and its various faces, which are contradictory, sometime controversial and often painful, we have joined together to offer an “Alternative” France-Russia Year to all those who would like to know Russia and not just celebrate it.This initiative is motivated by a desire not to abandon this event to the official discourse. We are all in contact with Russian citizens every day. We work with them and we defend them. And we are all confronted by the most brutal aspects of what Russian reality can offer.Our goal is to shed light on Russia’s hidden face, to tackle questions that are crucial for its future, and Europe’s future and to offer the possibility of talking to other protagonists.Throughout the year, this Alternative event will offer the possible of meeting and paying tribute to political prisoners, human rights activists and independent thinkers and writers with the aim of fostering an interest in this other Russia, for nurturing real solidarity between French and Russian citizens.Russia’s human rights activists need us. When Memorial’s representatives received the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize on 16 December, they appealed to the European Union to come to their aid. A few weeks later, one of their most respected spokespersons, Lyudmila Alexeyeva, was arrested!We want this appeal to be heard because there are fewer and fewer people who can issue it. In this respect, 2009 was one of the grimmest years. Many of those struggling for a Russia with more justice, a Russia more respectful of human rights, lost their lives last year.Stanislav Markelov (a lawyer), Anastasia Baburova (a Novaya Gazeta journalist, one of five journalists murdered in 2009), Natalia Estemirova (Memorial’s representative in Grozny), Zarema Sadulaeva (of the NGO Spasem Pokolenye – Save the Generation) and her husband Alik Djibralov, Sergei Magnitsky (a Hermitage Fund lawyer, who died in detention for lack of appropriate medical attention) and Maksharip Aushev (an Ingush opposition leader) are no longer around to speak out about the dramatic deterioration in human rights over the past six years in their country. There were also attempts to murder journalists such as Mikhail Beketov, who has been left maimed.Others have been or continue to be victims of an authoritarian regime: Alexander Podrabinek, a journalist forced into hiding for criticising the rampant neo-Stalinism; Oleg Orlov, the head of Memorial, who is the target of a criminal prosecution brought by Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov; Yuri Samodurov, the former head of the Sakharov Centre, and Andrei Yerofeyev, the former curator of the Tretyakov Gallery, who are being tried for organising an exhibition of censored art works; and Alexei Sokolov, a human rights activist who has been held for more than eight months for combating torture in detention centres.Mikhail Khodorkovsky is meanwhile still in prison and is facing the possibility of an additional 20-year sentence. Khodorkovsky’s case is far from an isolated one. Russia now has several dozen political prisoners who are recognised as such by Russian and western NGOs.Whether journalists, lawyers, members of human rights NGOs, heads of major corporations or activists calling for a freer civil society and a democracy with checks and balances, all are constantly subjected to considerable pressure and are sometimes threatened with death or imprisonment.The Russian population in its entirety is immersed in ubiquitous violence. The violence is growing in some regions of the country such as the republics of the Caucasus, where atrocities are frequent and cannot be blamed solely on the rebels operating there. This unbearable level of violence is often accompanied an appalling degree of impunity.No one has been arrested and punished for any of the murders of journalists or human rights activists in Russia in recent years!Our resources obviously cannot be compared with those of the official France-Russia Year. But our determination matches our conviction that nothing is inevitable, than Russia is not doomed to authoritarianism, that another Russia is already gestating and is waiting to be born, and that the architects of this change must be supported. The Alternative France-Russia Year is for those who share our interest in this other Russia,The Alternative France-Russia Year collective:- ACAT-France (Christian Action for the Abolition of Torture)- Amnesty International France – Maison d’Europe et d’Orient- Reporters Without BordersWith the support of the Russian NGOs: Sakharov Centre, Memorial, Glasnost Defence Foundation and Citizen Aid.

I was aiming for a clean test which didn’t happen, but I do feel like sometimes the mistakes are necessary to improve and show me where I need to fine tune.
