Vodafone eyes India IPO

first_img VODAFONE is to look into a possible IPO of its majority-owned Indian venture Vodafone Essar, it said yesterday.Chief executive Vittorio Colao said in an interview that the firm would consider the move in the next nine to 12 months.It follows the mobile operator’s withdrawal from the partnership of Essar Group, which has opted to exercise an option to sell a 33 per cent stake in the venture.Vodafone will pay in the region of $5bn (£3bn) in cash for Essar Group’s stake, which will boost its holding in the entity to around 75 per cent.It is thought the IPO decision will rest on the outcome of a long-running tax case with Indian authorities worth around $2.6bn. The action relates to the $11.2bn purchase of Hutchison Telecom’s operations in 2007. If the case is lost Vodafone may reconsider its investment in India.

Michael Brial’s assault on Frank Bunce in 1996

first_imgThursday Nov 6, 2008 Michael Brial’s assault on Frank Bunce in 1996 Not too long ago we featured the 1996 classic Bledisloe Cup match between the Wallabies and the All Blacks from Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Frank Bunce scored the late winning try, but it was Michael Brials malicious attack on him early on that had many people talking. Six minutes into the crucial Tri Nations match big Jonah Lomu was superbly tackled by the much smaller Ben Tune. As the ball was recycled, All Black center Bunce picked up, but was confronted by the uncompromising Wallaby number eight, Michael Brial. Brial unleashed a barrage of seemingly unprovoked strikes as Bunce played punching bag for what seemed like ages. Not too many of the shots actually landed, but the incident sparked outrage in the New Zealand camp. Astonishingly, referee Jim Fleming chose not to send Brial from the field, instead only reversing the penalty that was originally awarded to the Wallabies. New Zealand coach John Hart was outraged at Flemings ruling of the incident, with Bunce, the man on the wrong end of it, being equally surprised. “I couldn’t believe it he went right over the top,” Bunce said afterwards. It later emerged that Brial may still have held a grudge about the way Bunce flew into him at a maul, injuring him, four years earlier.

Brett Sheehan’s big hit on Quade Cooper, & Berrick Barnes update

first_imgFriday Jun 17, 2011 Brett Sheehan’s big hit on Quade Cooper, & Berrick Barnes update The good news is it’s Friday. The bad news? There isn’t any, it’s Friday. For most of you that will mean knocking off work early (if you haven’t already), hooking up with mates, and watching rugby all weekend. Here’s two clips to start it. The first comes from last weekend’s Super Rugby game between the Reds and the Force, a game that the Reds won in the dying moments thanks to a long pass from flyhalf Quade Cooper. Earlier in the match Cooper took a big hit though from fiery scrumhalf Brett Sheehan as he passed infield. Sheehan, despite being short in stature, punches well above his weight and pretty much resembles an angry pitbull. Of course Cooper was there for the taking and probably off balance, but it was a big impact, so well worth sharing with those big hit lovers out there. The second clip here is a lot more tragic in nature, although somehow the Aussie sense of humour manages to make light of a serious situation, and not necessarily in a bad way. You might have heard about Waratahs and Wallabies back Berrick Barnes having experienced a few big knocks of late, and complaining of experiencing bad headaches. It’s now got to the point that he’s made the decision to hang up his boots, until things improve. It’s a big call so close to a Rugby World Cup that he would no doubt be a big part of, but it sounds like his hands were tied in terms of what he can and can’t do on the field and in training, so we wish him all the best for the near future, and hope to see him out there playing for the Wallabies at the world cup in New Zealand later this year. Below are both clips, the first being the hit on Cooper, and the second being a discussion on The Rugby Club about the Barnes situation. On a sidenote, there have already been two games of Super Rugby this weekend, but tomorrow will be what decides the positioning on the final table. To find out how that all works, we’ve got a handy explanation that outlines who will finish where, who plays who, etc. . :: Related Posts :: Midweek Madness – Piggies vs Princesses – Dave Dennis vs Brett Sheehan Brett Sheehan shoulder knocks Brad Barritt out cold Bakkies Botha big hit on Berrick Barnes at Newlands Gareth Thomas late hit on Berrick Barnes ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

UK Counter-Terrorism Bill threatens press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources

first_img to go further The bill, which was tabled in the House of Commons on 6 June 2018 and is currently being scrutinised by the Public Bill Committee, contains a number of provisions that have worrying implications for press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources.“We are alarmed by provisions of this bill that would restrict journalists’ ability to do their jobs and create a chilling effect on freedom of expression. This is particularly worrying in light of the broader trend of moves to restrict press freedom in the UK. Further, the speed at which this legislation is being pushed through is also concerning. We urge MPs to thoroughly scrutinise the bill and ensure that threatening measures are struck and sufficient protections for press freedom included”, said RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent.In particular, RSF has highlighted concerns about Clause 1, which criminalises “reckless” expressions of opinion; Clause 2, which criminalises the publication of images of clothing; Clause 3, which criminalises the repeated viewing of vaguely defined content (a proposal RSF has previously spoken against); Clause 6, which proposes a significant increase in maximum sentences and could have a substantial chilling effect on journalism; Clause 12, which increases powers to enter and search home addresses, threatening the protection of confidential journalistic sources; and Clause 20 and Schedule 3, which create new powers of stop, search, detention, and retention and copying of material at ports and borders – again threatening the protection of journalistic sources.RSF considers these measures unlawful, unnecessary, and disproportionate infringement of the fundamental right to freedom of expression and recommends that they are excised from the bill. The new offences created would threaten press freedom and could criminalise responsible journalists investigating and reporting on issues of public interest.The full text of RSF’s submission is available on the Joint Committee on Human Rights website as well as via download below. The submission was compiled with research and support from Doughty Street Chambers.The UK is ranked 40th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about provisions of the UK’s Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill that threaten press freedom, as outlined in a submission to the Joint Committee on Human Rights for its inquiry into the bill.

But brandishing the spectre of Law 88 is the most outrageous of all these practices, as if the existence of an independent press could threaten a country’s integrity.”Santana received a surprise visit at his home in Santiago de las Vegas (on the outskirts of Havana) on 25 April from the local police chief, the local secretary of the Communist Party, the local coordinator of the Committees for the Defence of the Revolution and a member of the Veterans Association. They told him was henceforth banned from leaving home, under pain of reprisals. Santana described the visit as an act of intimidation orchestrated by State Security with the aim of preventing him from taking part in a teleconference due to take place later that day at the US Interests Section in Havana (which functions as an embassy in the absence of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba).Santana has had other recent run-ins with the political police. He was summoned by the local police chief on 7 April and questioned by two State Security officers, who again told him he should stop working as a journalist or risk being sentenced to 20 years in prison under Law 88. They also mentioned his mother’s frail health.The State Security also tried to discredit him in the eyes of his neighbours and asked them not to greet him any more. Despite this harassment, Santana said he was determined to continue reporting and writing.He was previously summoned and interrogated on 13 February by two State Security officers, Lt. Col. Iván and Maj. Moisés Leonardo. Iván (whose surname is not known) showed Santana a bundle of articles he had written as well as recordings of calls he had made to Miami-based Radio Martí, and threatened him with imprisonment if he did not stop.

Doctors who say no to opioid use face threats from patients

first_img Facebook WhatsApp Doctors who say no to opioid use face threats from patients Facebook Previous articleCarter scores 19 to carry Norfolk St. past Morgan St. 68-65Next articleNew Zealand city enters 3-day lockdown after virus found Digital AIM Web Support One patient threatened to shoot Dr. Terry Hunt if physical therapy didn’t relieve his pain as effectively as opioids did. Another harassed his staff, then roamed a hospital searching for Hunt after being told he would be weaned off painkillers he had used inappropriately. Hunt was unharmed, but shaken enough to ask the central Illinois hospital system where he worked to dismiss both patients. So when he heard about Tuesday’s attack at a medical clinic in Buffalo, Minnesota, that left one person dead and four injured, “the first thing I assumed is that it was something to do with pain medication,” said Hunt, who now works for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and a Mayo Clinic Health System facility in Red Wing, Minnesota. “It makes us ask about our own workplace: How secure are we?” Authorities said Gregory Paul Ulrich, 67, was angry about his medical treatment before he shot five workers and detonated three apparent pipe bombs at an Allina Health clinic. A police report says he had threatened a similar mass shooting in 2018, allegedly as revenge against people who he said “tortured” him with back surgeries and prescribed medication. A former roommate said Ulrich became upset when a doctor stopped prescribing painkillers, and that Ulrich also used other drugs and had untreated mental health issues. Law enforcement and the health system have not addressed the specifics of Ulrich’s treatment or medications. Doctors who treat pain say threats of violence escalated markedly in recent years as mounting legal and regulatory pressure stemming from the deadly opioid epidemic led many to prescribe alternatives and taper their patients off addictive painkillers. While some patients benefit from careful use of opioids, and doctors don’t want to stigmatize them, many would be better off treating pain with other therapies, experts say. But many become addicted to the drugs that are often intended for short-term use following surgeries. “It hijacks their brain,” said Dr. Carrie DeLone, regional medical director at Penn State Health Community Medical Group. “They don’t see themselves as having a problem.” Pain specialist Dr. Andrew Kolodny, a professor at Brandeis University and a founder of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing, said patients are convinced that opioids are treating their underlying problem because if they try to go without a dose or as their previous dose wears off, “they’re feeling horrible, agonizing pain,” when it can be the withdrawal that is causing pain hypersensitivity. “It’s much easier to give the patient what they want. You write the prescription … they walk out the door happy and there are no problems. To try and help a patient taper down … is much harder,” Kolodny said. And when a doctor says no, things can turn ugly. “We’ve had patients waiting for doctors in parking lots to harass them. We’ve had them say ‘We’re going to shoot you’ or ‘We’re going to burn your house down,’” DeLone said. Almost half of pain specialists surveyed during a violence education session at a 2019 American Academy of Pain Medicine meeting cited opioid management as the reason they had been threatened, said Dr. W. Michael Hooten, president-elect of the organization. In response to threats, doctors have dismissed patients. But they have also installed alarm systems and panic buttons and set up exam rooms so doctors are closest to the door. Some even advocate carrying weapons, said Hooten, noting that smaller clinics are at greatest risk because they might not be able to afford security. After his 2018 threat, police took Ulrich for a mental health evaluation, and Allina took legal action to bar him from the company’s property. A restraining order prohibited Ulrich from contact with the doctor or going into the clinic and nearby Allina-run Buffalo Hospital, where he once frightened a nurse so much that a colleague hit a panic button for help. Police said they had had no recent interactions with Ulrich that would have raised alarms before the attack in Buffalo, a small city about 40 miles (65 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis. St. Joseph County, Indiana, Prosecutor Ken Cotter said he didn’t know that such threats were common until 2017, when a man shot and killed a doctor who refused to prescribe opioids to his wife. Michael Jarvis ambushed Dr. Todd Graham in a parking lot hours after the appointment, said Cotter, adding there was evidence that Jarvis also was using opioids. Jarvis took his own life soon after. Before that, “I do not recall ever reading a threat report” from a doctor, said Cotter, who said he received calls from about 20 doctors after the shooting telling him how common they were. “They took (threats) as a cost of doing business.” Cotter said about a dozen meetings were held with doctors, law enforcement officials and others to discuss how to keep doctors safe, including deescalating tense situations, but also alternatives to opioids, disposal of old medications, and tackling the addiction problems that plague their communities. “When you’ve got doctors calling to say we have to do something, this is… literally our whole community’s crusade,” Cotter said. Kolodny, from Brandeis, said he has been compared to Hitler, threatened on Twitter, and a bag of nails was mailed to his home. Last month, protesters carried signs near his office demanding that he be fired because of his work advocating for less opioid use and helping states sue opioid manufacturers. The threats have “gotten really scary,” he said. “It’s just gotten really heated up.” ——— Webber reported from Fenton, Michigan. Associated Press Writer Amy Forliti contributed from Minneapolis.
