Scott Gibbs and that famous win over England in ’99

first_imgFriday Feb 13, 2009 Scott Gibbs and that famous win over England in ’99 The Five Nations of 1999 will forever be remembered for the day that Wales beat England at Wembley in the most dramatic of circumstances. Welsh and Lions centre Scott Gibbs wrote his name in the history books, as a few seconds of brilliance turned him into a legend for all of time. ADVERTISEMENTTen years ago, the outstanding Millennium Stadium as we know it today was under construction, so, in a strange twist of events, Wales adopted Wembley Stadium, in England, as their home ground.It was England, the visitors, who came to Wembley needed a victory to secure the Grand Slam. As you can see by this awesome video, it was all about Wales pre-match, and one had the feeling something special might happen.England led the game right up till the end before one last Welsh lineout meant that the Welsh had a chance to create history.A fantastic lineout followed, shortly before the little tank Scott Gibbs came barging through the line at great pace and a superb angle, beating English players with pure instinct before diving over the line for one of the greatest moments in rugby youre ever likely to see.But it wasnt over yet, as record points scorer Neil Jenkins still had the conversion to take to seal the win. If there was ever a man youd want lining up for that kick though, Jenkins would be him, as he proved by calmly slotting the ball over as if he were on the training ground.Wales won 32-31, taking the Grand Slam away from England, and handing Scotland the Five Nations Championship on points difference.ADVERTISEMENTFormer Scotland player and revered coach Jim Telfer was at home, watching the events from Wembley unfold on TV.“I always liked that wee bugger Gibbs,” he said.

The build up to the Drew Mitchell red card

first_imgSunday Aug 1, 2010 The build up to the Drew Mitchell red card Theres been a bit of confusion about the first yellow card issued to Drew Mitchell in the Wallabies 49-28 loss to the All Blacks this weekend. As discussed on the RD Facebook page earlier today, the reason for this is that a replay of the tackle was not shown on certain broadcasts. In this clip though you can see the tackle, as well as the lead up to the rare red card for a professional foul.The Wallabies were down 32-14 then had to play the majority of the second half with just 14 men after Mitchell was given a second yellow card, resulting in a red, for preventing a quick lineout throw in from taking place.He was initially sin binned for a late, no arms tackle on All Blacks captain Richie McCaw. It was spotted by both the tough judge and referee Craig Joubert, but play continued until the ball went dead, which is what led to things not being completely clear at first.While he was off the park, both Australia and New Zealand infringed by preventing one another from taking quick taps from penalties. Joubert eventually chatted to the captains and gave them a general warning. Mitchell then returned two minutes into the second half, and paid the price for being the next player to infringe.“Unfortunately the referee had given a general warning… but for a test match, it seemed a bit sort of out of kilter that you’ve lost one man because a player throws a ball away,” said unhappy Australian rugby boss John O’Neill. “It’s not as though he punched someone or it’s a dangerous tackle. But you’ve got to live with it.”While ONeill, and of course many others, have criticised not only the Mitchell decisions, but the Owen Franks yellow for a shoulder charge as well, All Blacks coach Graham Henry accepted the firm stance.“The referee’s pretty tough but I think that’s important you get a decent game of footy,” he said. “If he is grey on the tackle area or grey on people throwing the ball away when the other side wants it then you’ve got a shambles on your hands.“It’s good that he’s strict and he sticks to what he says he’s got to do. You’d prefer a referee who’s tough even if he goes over the top occasionally. That’s better than someone who sits on the fence and doesn’t rule,” said Henry.Mitchell was cited but cleared after the punishment he received was deemed sufficient.If you’re a Facebook user and haven’t already ‘liked’ Rugbydump,do so now to make sure you get the latest updates from not only this website, but other interesting clips, news stories, and more. The big discussion for now is, was this red card harsh, or is everyone happy as long as the referees are consistent?

FareShare takes fun approach to recruit volunteers with first national advertising campaign

first_img Tagged with: Advertising recruitment Volunteering AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis42 FareShare has teamed up with specialist branded content agency Raw London to create the campaign, which was made possible after FareShare won the 2018 Creative Shootout , from which it received £250,000 of media spend donated by premium publisher cooperative 1XL.Using the slogan “If you’ve got the time, we’ve got the food. Let’s get together”, the campaign focuses on the relationship between people and food in a way that paints FareShare as a fun and inclusive place to volunteer. It aims to make people laugh, raise awareness, and interest people enough to encourage them to volunteer either remotely or at one of FareShare’s 21 regional centres around the country. FareShare has launched a national volunteer recruitment campaign portraying people with the food they most resemble.The quirky ad is running in UK-wide articles and advertisements with the hope of recruiting thousands more volunteers, and is the charity’s first national advertising campaign. FareShare Chief Executive Lindsay Boswell said the campaign was only possible because of Creative Shootout:“As a charity, our small budget goes towards operational costs, so winning the 2018 Creative Shootout was a huge deal for us.“It was a no brainer for the campaign to be about volunteering because we just couldn’t feed 770,000 people a week without our amazing volunteers. We’ve got lots of interesting types of roles that people can help us with, so come and join us and help feed people first.“Many thanks to FareShare supporter Hugh Bonneville, and all the agencies and media suppliers involved, for galvanising creative agencies to ‘do their best for FareShare’ during the competition stages.”The campaign, which runs until the end of October, will be brought to life in print and online regional news titles across the UK, directing readers to a dedicated campaign microsite to sign up.

Opposition also threatens media

first_img The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell November 27, 2020 Find out more November 12, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders expresses its grave concern for freedom of information in Zimbabwe and the safety of local journalists after threats and attacks by members of the Movement for Democratic Change.Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai leads the MDC, which is the opposition party.“The ruling Zanu-PF party is not alone in showing hostility to the media and in opposing press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Members of the opposition are also responsible for a climate of intimidation. We call on the two leading government officials, President Robert Mugabe and the prime minister, as well as all political figures, to demonstrate respect for diversity of opinion.”On 7 June, journalist Herbert Moyo of the weekly Zimbabwe Independent, was attacked by young MDC members while covering a demonstration in the Sunningdale neighbourhood of Harare, the capital. Moyo was taking photos of demonstrators when a group of young men surrounded him and beat him. MDC spokesman Douglas Mwonzora, stepped in to end the attack.The day before, Tsvangirai bodyguards roughed up Mashudu Netsianda, a reporter for the daily Chronicle Newspaper in Bulawayo, before seizing his notebook and deleting recordings he had made on his mobile phone.In May, the prime minister himself threatened the media. “You cannot have a newspaper with six articles saying Tsvangirai this and Tsvangirai that,” he said. “Every day! Ragai vakadaro. But musi umwe gava richadambura musungo (Leave them like that, but one day the tables will be turned). That kind of media has no future in a democratic Zimbabwe. “I want to tell you this, muchadya izvozvo (you will face the music).” Reporters Without Borders expressed its concern in May about a harassment campaign against the media in the run-up to elections.Zimbabwe’s president, Robert Mugabe, has been placed on Reporters Without Borders’ list of 39 “Predators of Press Freedom” published on 3 May.For more information on press freedom in Zimbabwe.

Picture: Alan Place.LIMERICK’S high number of skilled graduates plays a key role in attracting new companies to set up operations here, according to Limerick Institute of Technology president Dr Maria Hinfelaar.Speaking at the college’s recent graduation ceremony, Dr Hinfelaar said: “We know that your employment record is good and that more and more companies are deciding to set up operations in Limerick and the wider region – a very direct influencing factor has been that they know there is a pipeline of graduates from LIT. They could have chosen to set up somewhere else, but they decided to come here.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Dr Hinfelaar said the college is “in constant communication” with various companies and was “involved at an early stage when they were weighing up the pros and cons of coming here”.“We work closely with the IDA in that regard, and we know how crucial the provision of education, training and research is in the decision-making process,” she added.More than 1,700 students graduated from LIT last week with academic awards ranging Higher Certificate through to PhD.Dr Hinfelaar encouraged graduates to become active members of the LIT Alumni Association.She said: “As well as providing strategic level support to LIT’s initiatives such as the €200 million Campus Masterplan, they open up their personal and business networks internationally for the benefit of LIT and our graduates.”LIT alumni include former Kerry Group CEO and chairman of the Mid West Task Force, Denis Brosnan, and president and founder of the Irish Technology Leadership Group in Silicon Valley, John Hartnett.

The “grounds” stated in the order are crammed with deprecating words like Scheming, hard headed, short lived marriage, Daddy’s Girl, etc.”the Impugned Detention Order is wholly based on the Impugned Dossier which is manifestly biased, slanderous and libelous against the Detenu and which no reasonable person ought to rely on for depriving a citizen of her fundamental freedoms and person liberty,” she said.She has further submitted that the foremost reason cited for continued detention, now under PSA was that the six months maximum period of detention under section 107 and 117 CrPC was expiring on the very day the Impugned Detention Order was passed, and that the Detenu had declined to sign a bond or “surety”. She pointed out that the bond contained a blanket undertaking that Mufti will not to make any comment on the recent events in the State.”This bond and surety which she was repeatedly asked to sign, the records would show,interalia included the promise that: “In case of release from detention, I will not make any comment(s) or issue statement(s) or make public speech(s) hold or participate in public assemblies related to the recent events in the State of Jammu and Kashmir, at the present time, since it has the potential of endangering the peace and tranquility and law and order in the State or any part thereof,” the plea reads.Opposing such a blanked ban on Mufti’s speech, Iltija has asserted,”On this count alone, the Detention Order should be set aside, for, preventive detention, tolerated by our polity and jurisprudence as a necessary evil, is not meant to stifle legitimate opposition to state policy.”Mufti, along with other prominent leaders of the erstwhile state of J&K was placed under preventive detention on August 5 last year, at the time of abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution. As per Section 116(6) proviso in CrPC, the same was due to expire in six months, i.e. on February 5, 2020.Iltja submitted that another reason cited in the impugned dossier was that Mufti had opposed the abrogation of Article 370 as unconstitutional. This, she asserted, clearly amounted to punishing and preventing “legitimate expression”.”The unconstitutionality of the purported abrogation of Article 370 is a common view held by many legal scholars and political scientists and many articles and writings have published taking the same view. Ex facie it is legitimate expression that is sought to be punished and prevented vide the Impugned Detention Order.… This cannot be justified as “reasonable objective basis for subjective satisfaction” as required by the statute and as interpreted by this Court in several judgments.” she said.Inter alia, she pointed out the dossier cited instances and utterances made by Mufti over the last decade without details and that the Impugned Detention Order was a “simplicitor gag order in the guise of a preventive detention order”.”the grounds are not only stale, for they refer to utterances admittedly made with no adverse consequences to law and order, but are also vitiated for non-application of mind insofar as they fail to show to why the said utterances pose a threat to public order. Other than a bald statement, not a single instance of any public disturbance has been cited. Nor is there any application of mind as to why such utterances if they contravene any law, cannot be managed by the normal criminal process,” she submitted.On this note, she asserted that there was nothing to show that Mufti had been “acting in a manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order” and thus, the impugned order was violative of Section 8(3)(b) of the PSA and Articles 14, 19, 21 and 22 of the Constitution.With these submissions, Iltija has prayed that the impugned order be quashed and that a writ in the nature of Habeas Corpus be issued, commanding the state authorities to set Mufti at liberty.The petition also seeks appropriate compensation for Mufti for the illegal and unconstitutional detention that she has suffered. The petition has been drawn by Advocates Prasanna S and Aakarsh Kamra. Filed by Advocate on Record Aakarsh Kamra.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The plea has also challenged the UP government’s 17th March issued in compliance of the High Court’s order as a consequence of which, the constituency Ishapur, district Jaunpur of the petitioner which was earmarked as unreserved, has now been reserved for the Other Backward Class category.The High Court had quashed an order issued by the Uttar Pradesh government dated 11th February, dealing with the reservation of seats for various categories of candidates in the polls, taking 1995 as the base year. The petitioner, a resident of Ishapur Gram Panchayat has contended that it was not brought to the High Court’s notice that the Uttar Pradesh Panchayat Raj (Reservation and Allotment of Seats) Rules, 1994 were amended by the 11th amendment on 9th Feb 2021 and accordingly the Government order was issued.The plea has been drawn by Advocate Shariq Ahmed and filed by Advocate Sunil Kumar Verma. The petition has stated that when Panchayat elections were due in 2015, the State Govt., on the ground of reorganization of Gram Panchayats since the last elections amended the Rules 1994 through the 10th amendment by incorporating a proviso to Rules 4. The amendment provided for commencement of a new rotation ignoring the prior status of the reservation/rotation for gram panchayats in respect of each of the reserved categories.The plea has added that this led to serious anomalies due to non-implementation of reorganization in four districts of Gonda, Sambhal, Gautambudhnagar and Moradabad, as in the event of the Panchayat election being held as per the 2015 amended Rules, new reservation would have had to be made in the these four districts, whereas in rest of the 71 districts there would have been reservation of the next stage of the rotational reservation of the 2015 election.According to the petitioner, to obviate this anomalous and chaotic situation and to bring uniformity in the panchayat election, the State Govt. amended the said 1994 Rules by the 11th amendment titled ‘The Uttar Pradesh Panchayat Raj (Reservation and Allotment of Seats and Offices) (Eleventh Amendment) Rules, 2021 concerning the reservation of seats in order to ensure that no Panchayat is deprived of the benefit of reservation based on caste.The plea has stated that the High Court erroneously relied on the judgment of Supreme Court in case of Vikas Krishna Gawali Vs. State of Maharashtra. The plea has added that due to the impugned Govt. Order dated 17th March, the constituency of the petitioner which was earlier earmarked as unreserved, has now been reserved for the Other Backward Class Category.”The very object of the principle of rotation that no community or reserved category can lay claim to a reserved seat in perpetuity has been belied by this Govt. order inasmuch as several constituency which were reserved for one category would be reserved for the same category again whereas several constituency may not get the reserve status due do the principle of next descending order of population because of demographic changes after every census.” the plea has stated.The petitioner has also pointed out the anomalies in computation of percentage population of reserved category. According to the petitioner, a rapid survey was done for computation of the percentage population of the reserved category of the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes for the purposes of providing reservation to such categories on the rotational basis. The anomaly of this computation of the various constituencies of Jaunpur district is quite evident from the fact that for some of them the percentage of the Backward Class population is shown to be more than 100 percentThe Allahabad High Court had on 15th March quashed an order issued by the Uttar Pradesh government (dated 11th February) dealing with the reservation of seats for various categories of candidates for the upcoming panchayat polls, taking 1995 as the base year. The State Government had submitted before the bench of Justice Manish Mathur and Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi that it had no objection to implement the reservation and allotment of seats of constituencies in Panchayat’s elections taking 2015 as the base year.Earlier, on 12th March, the High Court had stayed the publication of the final list of seats reserved for the panchayat polls till 15th March. The High Court was hearing a PIL filed by one Ajay Kumar, who challenged the UP-State Government’s decision to take 1995 as the base year, instead of 2015, for reserving the seats for upcoming panchayat polls.Referring to the Government Order dated 16th September 2015, the Petitioner’s counsel contended that substantial demographic changes have taken place in the Districts of the State in the Gram Panchayat and Kshetra Panchayat territories in view of the census of 2001 and 2011. Thus, it was argued that it wouldn’t be conducive to have 1995 as the base year for purposes of applying reservation as per Rule 4 of Rules of 1994 and that the base year in view of the changed demographic situation was required to be taken as 2015.The High Court then directed the State to hold the elections by 10th May 2021 and indirect election by 25th May 2021. The impugned order dated 11th February 2021 was also quashed and the writ petition was allowed.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
