Ireland fail to impress as Georgia register points at last

first_img Unclean ball: Georgia make a mess of an Irish scrum during today’s Autumn Nations Cup match (Inpho) Ireland fail to impress as Georgia register points at lastIreland got the Autumn Nations Cup win that all predicted but drew little comfort from their performance at the Aviva Stadium.At a time when the entertainment value of rugby is being questioned because of a proliferation of kicking, Ireland’s 23-10 defeat of Georgia did little to assuage concerns.The second half was desperately poor, with a rash of penalties, handling errors and substitutions disrupting the flow of the game. In addition, there was a serious injury to Georgia’s excellent No 8 Beka Gorgadze.Coming off the back of defeat at Twickenham, Ireland vowed to fix the set-piece. They were half-successful because the lineout functioned like clockwork, albeit throwing to the safer areas. They achieved scrum parity in the first half but fell away after the break against a Georgia side finally delivering this autumn on their assumed area of expertise. Rob Herring also came close, from a lineout drive, and credit to Gorgadze, so often Georgia’s best player, for getting underneath the hooker to deny the score. The Lelos’ captain, Merab Sharikadze, also had an outstanding match, making more than 20 tackles to go with his powerful ball carrying.For Ireland, there will be last one opportunity this autumn to try to prove that they can produce the goods in the collision area. Georgia will hope that Fiji will be available to play their scheduled play-off game next weekend. It has been a tough few weeks for the East Europeans but today’s performance will give them much encouragement.Special moment: fly-half Billy Burns celebrates his first Test try as Ireland make a strong start (Inpho)Ireland: Jacob Stockdale; Hugo Keenan, Chris Farrell, Stuart McCloskey, Keith Earls (Shane Daly 63); Billy Burns (Ross Byrne 46), Conor Murray (Kieran Marmion 57); Finlay Bealham (Cian Healy 57), Rob Herring, Andrew Porter (John Ryan 41), Iain Henderson, James Ryan (capt, Quinn Roux 62), Tadhg Beirne (Peter O’Mahony 62), Will Connors (Dave Heffernan 67), CJ Stander.Tries: Burns, Keenan.

Ireland book a play-off match with Scotland as they complete the Autumn Nations Cup pool phase with a 23-10 win in Dublin. But it was the Lelos who emerged the happier The highlight of the match was Georgia’s first try of their Autumn Nations Cup campaign, having been nilled by England and Wales over the past fortnight. And it was a beauty, Kveseladze taking an inside pass just inside his own half and embarking on a swerving run past Billy Burns and beyond the sprawling reach of Jacob Stockdale and Stuart McCloskey.Ulster fly-half Burns had opened the scoring after nine minutes, darting across from ten metres for his first Test try on his third appearance. He added two penalties and two conversions for a 15-point haul by the break, before giving way to Ross Byrne.Hugo Keenan scored Ireland’s other first-half try from Stockdale’s perfect long left-hand pass. However, Ireland were left aggrieved that another effort was ruled out.Stockdale produced another peach of a pass to find McCloskey wide on the left and the centre scooted up the touchline to dot down. But the try was controversially chalked off for a ‘forward’ pass after TMO intervention. Worryingly for Ireland, Georgia also won the physical battle, as typified by their try-scorer, Giorgi Kveseladze, driving back Irish prop John Ryan powerfully in midfield. In the closing moments, the centre resisted CJ Stander’s close-range drive in similarly robust fashion.Andy Farrell’s team was never in danger of losing the game and, having clinched second place in Pool A, they now advance to a play-off with Scotland at the same ground next Saturday.But major doubts persist about their ability to get gain-line dominance. The stats show that Georgia made a higher number of dominant tackles and also of turnover tackles, although in fairness they went through a heap more work in that department. Ireland had 68% of the possession, along with 63% of the territory. Jerry Flannery, commentating for Channel 4, said: “Ireland were physically dominated in the one-to-one battles. Georgia do not go away. How well they pitched against an Ireland side that has underperformed has been admirable.”last_img read more

Tell the IRS, ‘Hands off IFCO’

first_imgThe Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization needs your support and action to turn back a politically motivated attack using the Internal Revenue Service. IFCO is widely known for its Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravans, which have delivered humanitarian aid challenging the U.S. blockade of Cuba since 1992 — a unilateral blockade rejected by the majority of United Nations countries in annual votes since 1992. The decision is expected at any time, so IFCO urges immediate action. Updates and tools, including fax, phone and email contact information for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and Secretary of the Treasury Jacob Lew, are at ifconews.org/irs-plans-to-strip-ifco-of-its-tax-exempt-status.After more than five years of investigation and appeals, IFCO was told the U.S. Internal Revenue Service plans to strip this longtime Civil Rights organization of its tax-exempt status. According to an Oct. 1 letter from IFCO’s attorneys, this action is based on “a unilateral determination by the IRS revenue agent that Pastors had violated the Cuba embargo and thus the Trading with the Enemy Act.” In the 24 years of IFCO’s Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravans to Cuba no enforcement action was ever taken against IFCO by either the Office of Foreign Asset Controls, which administers and enforces U.S. economic sanctions programs, or the IRS itself. So it is a case of punishment without due process.Injury to one, aimed at allIFCO’s Oct. 3 press release states: “IFCO is one of the nation’s oldest, faith-based civil rights organizations and the first ecumenical foundation founded by and for people of color. IFCO administers the Latin American Medical School scholarship program, which brings U.S. students to Cuba to study medicine for free. More than 25,000 students from around the world have graduated from the Cuban medical school, including 134 from the U.S.”IFCO’s support for the U.S. medical students in Cuba was expressly cited in the IRS recommendation against IFCO, saying that conveying small financial donations from families to their students violated the blockade. How much more difficult would it be without IFCO for OFAC-licensed students and their families to take advantage of this full scholarship program, which is providing debt-free doctors in underserved U.S. communities.In addition to IFCO’s medical school program, IFCO has been a fiscal sponsor for many small organizations doing important community work, sometimes projects unpopular with corporate rulers. This includes educational organizations working on behalf of political prisoners like Mumia Abu-Jamal and Dr. Mutulu Shakur, assisting humanitarian efforts to provide ambulances and other material aid to Gaza through the Viva Palestina effort, and Health Care-NOW’s educational work about universal health care programs.“The attack by the U.S. government to rescind our non-profit status is shocking and makes no sense in light of the significant moves of both the Obama and Castro administrations to normalize relations between our two countries,” said Gail Walker, executive director of IFCO, in the Oct. 3 press release.“We need our friends in Congress, the American public and especially the diverse faith communities that we represent to tell the IRS to stop bullying IFCO and allow us to continue our lifesaving, humanitarian work. Our faith and conscience calls us to do this work, and we should not be punished for helping the people of Cuba,” concluded Walker.This attack on IFCO is another example showing the U.S. economic, financial and commercial blockade of Cuba is still in full force and effect. Act now to defend IFCO and end the U.S. blockade of Cuba.

Required fields are marked * Subscribe The Art Center College of Design’s “OutsideIn: The Ascendance of Street Art in Visual Culture” continues through January 10, 2016 at multiple venues in Pasadena.OutsideIn” is an expansive indoor and outdoor exhibition focusing on the insurgent quality of graffiti-based mural painting and its cross-cultural references, resulting in the establishment of a “new porous mainstream in design, fashion and advertising,” according to an Art Center press release.More than 10 famous street artists and pop culture icons started installing original art when the exhibit opened October with a reception at the Williamson Gallery at the Hillside Campus. Sherwin-Williams Paint Store in Pasadena is donating supplies and materials to the artists.The exhibition spans both of ArtCenter’s campuses, appearing in the Williamson at Hillside and five miles away at the South Campus, on the rooftop and on an exterior wall at 950 S. Raymond and inside the Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall at 870 South Raymond.Initiated by Ann Field, ArtCenter’s Illustration Department Chair, the curatorial team also includes author G. James Daichendt and Williamson Gallery Director Stephen Nowlin.“Like many artistic insurgencies, street art has had to navigate around pitfalls of its own commercial success to remain possessed of raw and vital meanings,” Nowlin said. “That tension, along with the breadth of street art’s current influence in contemporary design and visual culture, is what we set out to explore in ‘OutsideIn’.”Featured artists in the show are Olivia Bevilacqua and David Flores, Chase, Robbie Conal, Cryptik, Jeanne Detallante, Shepard Fairey, James Jean, Geoff McFetridge, Risk, Kenny Scharf and Jeff Soto.“OutsideIn” was inspired in part by the mural Keith Haring painted at the ArtCenter’s Hillside Campus in 1989, commemorating the World Health Organization’s second annual AIDS Awareness Day.That piece, which took two days to paint, was Haring’s last completed work. Three months later he died of AIDS.For more information, visit www.williamsongallery.net/outsidein.

Second Covid Wave-Gauhati High Court Directs Authorities To Release Foreigner Detenues Who Have Completed Two Years Of Detention

first_imgNews UpdatesSecond Covid Wave-Gauhati High Court Directs Authorities To Release Foreigner Detenues Who Have Completed Two Years Of Detention Nupur Thapliyal12 May 2021 11:48 PMShare This – xThe Gauhati High Court on Monday modified its last year order in the suo moto writ petition concerning covid situation in the State and directed the authorities to release the foreigner detenues who have completed their two years of detention on their personal bond of Rs. 5,000 and one surety instead of two sureties owing to the exceptional circumstances of second covid wave. A division bench comprising of Chief Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia and Justice Manash Ranjan Pathak ordered thus: “In fact, we must reiterate that in view of the order of the Division Bench of this Court dated 15.04.2020 passed in WP(C) (Suo Moto) No.1/2020, no separate order needs to be passed in each case and the concerned authority are hereby directed, wherever such detenues are detained, to release them forthwith as and when they complete their two years of detention with the following modification that under these exceptional circumstances of the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic, they may be released on their personal bond of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees Five Thousand) and one surety instead of two sureties.” The Court directed that the aforesaid order shall be communicated to all the Superintendent of Police (Border) of all the districts, including the Superintendent and authorities of all the Jails and such detentions where foreigners are being detained within forty-eight hours from the date of order. In view of this, the Court also clarified that the directions passed in the suo moto writ petition last year shall be complied with at the time of release of a detenue. The direction came in a petition filed by one Samsul Hoque challenging the order passed by Foreigners’ Tribunal, Jorhat dated 13th May 2019 wherein he was declared as a foreigner and had been in detention since then. Observing that the petitioner will shortly be completing two years of his detention, the Court observed thus: “In consideration of the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court dated 13.04.2020 in Suo Motu Writ Petition (Civil) No.1/2020 (In Re: Contagion of Covid 19 virus in prisons), which had been followed by a Division Bench of this Court later in WP(C) (Suo Moto) No.1/2020 (Gauhati High Court -Vs- Union of India & Ors.) dated 15.04.2020, a detenue is liable to be released after completing two years in detention or his furnishing personal bond of Rs.5,000/- (Rupees Five Thousand) and like amount of two sureties.” The High Court had last year issued certain general directions to be observed by all the Foreigners Detention Centers in Assam, while determining and releasing eligible detainees as per the direction of the Supreme Court. The Court directed the concerned Superintendent of Police (Border) to first take stock of the names and period of detention of such detenues under his/her jurisdiction claiming benefit of release on bail for having completed more than 2 years in detention and thereafter take necessary steps for their release on bail, subject to: – Execution of bond with two sureties of Rs.5,000/- (Five Thousand) each of Indian citizens. – Declaration of verifiable address of stay after release. – Capturing and storing of the biometrics of the iris of both eyes and all 10 (ten) fingerprints and photos in a secured database before release from the concerned Detention Centre. – Declaration/Undertaking that the detenue shall report once every week to the Police Station/Out Post (to be specifically named with necessary particulars), located within the vicinity of his/her verifiable address of stay after release. – Declaration/Undertaking that the detenue shall notify any change of his/her address to the said named Police Station/Out Post on the same day. – Declaration/Undertaking that in case of violation of any of the conditions, the detenue will be liable to be apprehended and produced before the Foreigners’ Tribunal concerned. – The High Court has also ordered the jurisdictional Superintendent of Police (Border) to submit a quarterly report to the concerned Foreigners’ Tribunal regarding appearance of the detenue before the concerned Police Station/Out Post, as mentioned above.

TALE TO TELL

first_img Jayden agreed that when a large number of teenagers really pay attention, “it’s got to be good.”Goforth played the guitar, the banjo and the fiddle. He sang songs and told stories.One of those stories was about his grandfather and there were more than a few misty eyes in the crowd.“I think that story kind of got to everybody,” said Forrest Dennis, Troy University junior. “Josh Goforth is a great storyteller and he is a great musician. He’s awesome. I would love to see him again. If that’s what storytelling is like, I like it.”Virgil Warrick sat almost spellbound throughout the performance.“I had never been up close to a performer before,” he said. “I liked the music and the stories. I’m glad I got to be there. I’ll always remember it.”Josh Goforth, Donald Davis, Elizabeth Ellis and Tim Lowry will be the featured tellers at the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival today at the Trojan Center Theater.

Troy High School class of ‘48 reunites

first_imgSkip You Might Like Book Nook to reopen In the year 1948, average yearly wages were $2,950 and the average cost of a new house was $7,700.  A new automobile cost $1,250 and a gallon of gas was 16 cents. A loaf of bread cost 14 cents, a pound of hamburger meat was 45 cents and a two-pound bag of coffee was a whopping 85 cents.Bikinis were becoming fashionable and television sets were appearing in more homes.And, down south in Troy, Alabama, the Troy High School Class of 1948 was ready to step out into a big world of wonder. By Jaine Treadwell Sanders also remembered one special teacher, Miss Roxie Dunbar.“She was a pretty lady with real white skin. She loved pansies and she wore them as often as she could,” Sanders said. “In her class, we painted pansies and I loved them, too. Now, the faces have been taken off pansies and that’s sad. Pansies need faces for us to enjoy.”Sanders said, she, like most of her classmates “took D.O.- Diversified Occupation.” The students took classes in the morning and worked in the afternoon. Sanders worked at Edge Hospital as a nurse’s aide.Sanders said, in the aftermath of WWII, many of the young men in the Troy High School Class of 1948 were anxious to answer Uncle Sam’s call.“We have a long list of veterans in our class,” she said. “They were proud to serve.”Seated nearby where the THS Class of 1948 was enjoying renewing old friendships, members of the Mercer College basketball team were enjoying Julia’s buffet.“One of our classmates was talking with the players and told them that we all graduated high school here in Troy 70 years ago and that made us all way past 80 years,” Sanders said. “He told the players to take a good look at us because, in 70 years, that’s how they would look.”To the delight of the classmates, the young Mercer man said, “If we look that good, we’ll be in good shape.” And that was a high note on which to end the THS Class of 1948 reunion. Sponsored Content On Saturday, October 20, 2018, nine members of the Troy High School Class of 1948 gathered at Julia’s Restaurant for its 70th reunion.“There are a few more of us but we weren’t able to get in touch with everyone,” said Mary Alice Carter Sanders. We were proud to have nine. It’s been a long time since 1948.”Class members in attendance were Sanders, Sarah Griffin Knight, Edge Senn, Douglas Griffin, Veryl Lassiter, Louise Boutwell Reeves. Nell Grant Fannin, Eugene “Pick” Daughtry and Raymond Hill. Messenger photo/Jaine TreadwellThe Troy High School Class of 1948 celebrated its 70th anniversary on October 20 at Julia’s Restaurant.

Back then, we didn’t have buses to take us to school and I remember walking to school from where we lived on Skinner Crossing off South Three Notch Street to the schoolhouse on Elm Street.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 11:41 pm Thursday, October 25, 2018 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Print Article By The Penny Hoarder PARENT EXPO: Pike County Schools shows off programs Parents of children in the Pike County Schools system got an inside look at the programs and resources offered to… read more Troy High School class of ‘48 reunites Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
