New Zealand level the series against France in Wellington

first_imgSaturday Jun 20, 2009 New Zealand level the series against France in Wellington The All Blacks drew the two Test series with France in a rain drenched Wellington after a 14-10 win that went some way towards redeeming the pride of the nation.They bounced back well after their 27-22 defeat to Les Blues last weekend, with a much improved forward effort, as they denied France from winning their first series in New Zealand since 1994.It was a tight and hard old style Test match, with the driving rain doing neither side any favours as the ball resembled a piece of soap at times as it spat out of the grasp of both sides on numerous occasions.Stephen Donald struggled in the conditions initially, missing his first three kicks, but when Maa Nonu dived over in the first half, New Zealand looked to be taking shape.Two penalties to Donald and one to his replacement Luke McAllister had the home side in the lead throughout. A superb individual effort from left wing Cedric Heymans kept France in the match though.Heymans got the ball with very little space to move, so little in fact that it seemed he had stepped out. He hadnt though, and he sensationally went on to beat no less than four players on his way to the tryline for a brilliant individual try.Scrumhalf Julien Dupuy converted, before his replacement Dimitri Yachvili slotted a penalty, but it wasnt enough as the All Blacks held on for a well deserved win under immense pressure.

Immigrant workers strike against repression

first_imgSupporting detained immigrants, March 16.Tacoma, Wash. — Immigrant workers imprisoned in the Northwest Detention Center here launched a hunger strike on March 6. As of March 16, the strike continues. This protest at the fourth largest immigrant detention prison in the country has attracted widespread support. The strike is part of the growing movement against deportations and the separation of families. This heroic action puts pressure on the Obama administration to end the Immigration Customs Enforcement deportation regime.The prisoners have made basic survival demands. They want better food — not the same thing every day; better treatment; better pay — they receive only $1 per day for prison labor; lower commissary prices; fairness; and an end to deportations!On March 6, 1,200 prisoners refused meals. Now the strike is down to a smaller number. Activists in touch with the prisoners say twenty of them have been thrown in “the hole” as retaliation for leading the action. One of the organizers, Ramón Mendoza Pascual, says the strike will continue “as long as it takes.”The group Not One More Deportation blocked deportation buses from leaving the prison in late February. That’s when the prisoners said they decided to launch their struggle.Prisoners’ families and an estimated 250 people from the community demonstrated in the street in front of the prison on March 11. Community support vigils/demonstrations also continue outside the prison every day. Speakers on March 11 condemned the for-profit prison industry, since the Northwest Detention Center is owned by the Geo Group, with Wells Fargo Bank being its biggest stockholder.Maru Mora Villalpando of Latino Advocacy told demonstrators on March 11: “The federal government is turning our families over to a corporation that’s driving their treatment down in order to drive their profits up. We will stand with the detainees and ensure their request for fair treatment is met.”The prisoners, refusing to be victims, have joined and are helping to lead a nationwide movement against unprecedented levels of detentions and deportations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Training session for Tamil journalists disrupted

first_img Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge News On 1 July the defence ministry issued an order banning NGOs from organizing activities “beyond their mandate” such as “press conferences, workshops, training for journalists and dissemination of press releases”. All NGOs that organized such activities were ordered to abandon them.Despite the long list of violations of freedom of information recorded since the civil war ended officially in 2009, military spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya said in a statement two days ago: “There has also not been a single attack on journalists reported in the past few years.” Sri Lanka is ranked 165th of 180 countries in the 2014 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders.Photo: Tamilguardian July 29, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial The crackdown on Tamil news organizations was stepped up after the UN Human Rights Council called in March this year for an investigation into allegations of human rights abuses between 2002 and 2009. At that time, Tamil journalists were understood to have begun investigating cases of child rape by troops in the north of the country. News Follow the news on Sri Lanka August 1, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Training session for Tamil journalists disrupted Benjamin Ismaïl, head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific Desk, said: “The Sri Lankan authorities must immediately halt their repressive policy towards the media, and towards Tamil journalists in particular. The latter are regularly targeted by the military since they are among the few journalists still interested in awkward issues such as extra-judicial executions, kidnappings, the military presence in the north of the country and land seizures.” January 13, 2021 Find out more Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information center_img Sri LankaAsia – Pacific to go further Pro-government activists have disrupted media training for Tamil journalists for the second time in two months, this time a two-day workshop on technology safety in Colombo. Such repeated interference, often accompanied by death threats, is a regular occurrence for Tamil journalists. Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists An earlier training session on investigative journalism for Tamil journalists, organized by Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) on 7 June, was interrupted on the orders of the defence ministry with the aim of preventing the journalists from assisting the UN investigators in their work. Thirteen Tamil journalists were forced to leave the hotel where the session was being held.Shan Wijetunga, a senior TISL manager who has also received death threats, said training courses only appeared to be a problem for the authorities when they were attended by Tamil journalists. Receive email alerts The Sri Lankan authorities are trying to muzzle news organizations by denying them the right to training. The workshop, scheduled for 26 and 27 July and attended by some 15 Tamil journalists, was organized by the Sri Lanka Press Institute. It was halted when protesters arrived at the venue and threatened the organizers. On their way to the session, the journalists were held up for several hours after being stopped by soldiers who accused their driver of transporting cannabis.At a news conference, Sunil Jayasekara, coordinator and spokesman for the Free Media Movement, deplored the harassment of the Tamil journalists. He subsequently received seven anonymous death threats.

Held at a stunning 1941 Monterey Colonial style estate that was designed by noted residential architect, Roland E. Coate, Sr., the event unveiled the 2013 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. At the Empty House Party, chaired by Beverly Marksbury and Donna Gotch, guests and media were treated to a sneak peek of the property before it will undergo a dramatic transformation at the hands of 19 interior designers and nine landscape designers. The home, a perfect example of Coate’s “California Style” with its infusion of various Colonial Revival stylistic features, will be revitalized in the coming months, and by April, be fully restored into an extraordinary, must-see destination.“This is a very exciting night for all of us who have been planning behind the scenes over the past months to bring this project to this point,” said PSHA Benefit Chair Katherine Watkins. “It takes a small army to produce the Showcase House each year and I am extremely fortunate to have such a stellar committee. They amaze me every day with their resourcefulness, tenacity, and dedication.”After passing through the expansive bucolic grounds, guests gathered inside to view the designers’ concepts and share a glimpse of how the 49th Showcase House will appear when it opens to the public on April 21st. While perusing illustrations, color palettes, fabrics and sketches, attendees enjoyed an impressive selection of culinary offerings from The Kitchen for Exploring Foods. The menu, overseen by Peggy Dark, included a lavish gourmet spread: fresh steamed seafood, hearty soups, savory beef short ribs coupled with truffle mashed potatoes and haricot vert, an assortment of Asian-inspired cuisine from grilled vegetable skewers to skewered Teriyaki beef, and a medley of Mexican quesadillas and mini chile rellenos. To complete the menu, guests enjoyed an irresistible selection of desserts, including ganache filled chocolate cupcakes, apple upside-down cake topped with vanilla ice cream and pear spice cake. Coffee and after dinner drinks were also served.Built in 1941 for prominent furniture executive C. Lawrence Barker, of the former Southland furniture company, Barker Brothers, the estate features a two-story, 10,433 square foot home, several gardens, a tennis/basketball court, a swimming pool with spa, and a pool house, set on 1.79 acres amongst mature trees that add to its tranquil ambiance. True to Coate’s style, the mansion presents a formal exterior, while the interiors are much more informal and open to the outdoors.The Empty House Party is the official announcement for PSHA’s annual benefit, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design for 2013. The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the United States. Each year, Southern California’s most prominent interior and exterior designers renovate an estate of architectural significance using the latest design products and concepts.“Through the proceeds from Showcase House, we are able to fund school music and arts programs that have been eliminated due to cutbacks in support of the arts,” said PSHA President Kathryn Hofgaarden. “I believe wholeheartedly in PSHA’s mission and am grateful to our members who volunteer countless hours to make Showcase a success.”Approximately 30,000 guests will visit the House, its restaurant, and the Shops at Showcase this Spring to view the results of the time and dedication invested by the designers and the PSHA volunteers. Tickets cost between $35-$45 and can be ordered by mail, online at PasadenaShowcase.org or by calling (714) 442-3872. Tickets go on sale February 4, 2013. The success of Showcase has enabled PSHA to make cumulative donations of over $18 million to support outstanding music and arts programs throughout the community.

Poor work still earns bonusesOn 15 May 2001 in Personnel Today Eight out of 10 directors receive bonuses for sub-standard performance, asurvey has revealed. Sharing in the Boardroom found a lack of information about remunerationschemes means shareholders find it impossible to establish a clear link betweendirectors’ pay and performance. The PricewaterhouseCoopers research, based on annual reports and accountsfrom 128 firms in the lower half of the FTSE 500, shows 82 per cent ofdirectors get bonuses for below-par work. The proportion has risen since a similar survey last year, when the figurewas 75 per cent. Another piece of research released last week shows that executive pay hasrisen by 8 per cent in the past year. Those in the top 30 FTSE 100 companies received median basic salaries ofmore than £600,000 last year plus a £200,000 bonus.

Robin Paterson makes his next (highly critical) move on Countrywide

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Robin Paterson makes his next (highly critical) move on Countrywide previous nextAgencies & PeopleRobin Paterson makes his next (highly critical) move on CountrywideIndustry veteran and Sotheby’s Realty UK owner says unless Countrywide takes his suggestions on board, he will entertain ‘other options’ to turn the company around.Nigel Lewis20th August 202001,833 Views Senior industry veteran Robin Paterson has launched an extraordinary broadside against Countrywide within a five-page letter to its chairman Peter Long setting out his plan for the company.As The Negotiator revealed at the end of July, Paterson has spent the past month hoovering up Countrywide shares via his company Catalist Partners and now holds 3.44 million or 10.48% of the estate agency’s total stock.Catalist is now a significant shareholder and Paterson says he has held several virtual meetings with Long to discuss the company’s ailing performance.The letter says: “We believe it paramount that Countrywide’s stakeholders – employees, shareholders, lenders and customers – receive immediate clarity on the Company’s plans to address the significant fall in the share price; adapt to current trading conditions; address emerging customer needs; respond to evolving competitor models and; critically, explain how this will be achieved, over what time frame and who will implement such change.“The decline in Countrywide’s financial performance over the past four years has been disappointing.“The company’s competitors have outperformed on several key metrics and now command far higher valuations, despite generating lower revenues.”Paterson reveals that he has published the letter because Long has refused to engage any further following initial meetings in July.The proposals include some radical surgery including consolidating many of its 50 brands and reducing its 700-strong branch network and setting up regional off-high street super-hubs.A new senior team is also needed including a CEO (which is currently being sought) and COO as well as a CMO marketing whizz to sell the company’s brands.£300m sell offAs well as establishing a modern CRM system, Paterson suggests selling off its surveying, financial services and commercial arm Lambert Smith Hampton for £300m to clear it debts.Most ominously, Paterson signs off the letter with a threat – that unless Long pulls his finger out, ‘all options’ will be pursued.Paterson’s spokesperson would not reveal what this means in practice, but Long will know it could include a hostile takeover bid or a bid to have the company’s senior management replaced.Read the full text of the letter here. Robin Paterson Peter Long Countrywide August 20, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
