The British and Irish Lions win the first Test as Kurtley Beale misses late penalties

first_imgSaturday Jun 22, 2013 The British and Irish Lions win the first Test as Kurtley Beale misses late penalties The Lions held on to win the first Test as the Wallabies, who had multiple injuries to contend with, missed two chances to take the lead late in the game. The outcome of the series now looks as though it’ll be down to who adapts best to injury setbacks. The Wallabies got off to an awful start as debutant Christian Leali’ifano was knocked out cold in the first minute after a strong carry from centre Jonathan Davies. It set the tone for the match, as Berrick Barnes, Pat McCabe, Digby Ioane and Adam Ashley Cooper followed. At one stage in the second half the Wallabies had flanker Michael Hooper in the backline, but they showed great courage to hang on nevertheless, coming painfully close to snatching the win from two late penalty attempts. Earlier brilliant tries were scored in a scintilating first half, with debutant Israel Folau scoring after a brilliant Will Genia break, and then George North scoring arguably one of the greatest Lions tries.Folau got his second try with a sensational inside step and fend, before Alex Cuthbert crossed through the disorganised Wallaby midfield later in the game. In the end it all came down to a penalty attempt from Kurtley Beale at the death. Beale, just having returned from time out of the game due to some personal issues, slipped on the chewed up turf, allowing the Lions to take the win and go 1-0 in a series that has already been a fantastic advert for the code of Union in Australia. “KB did as well as he could. I told him not to worry about it… everyone in the team still loves him,” said captain James Horwill, who was later cited for a stamp. Multiple players will undergo scans today and this week, and it looks as though Paul O’Connell is on his way home after suffering with a broken bone in his arm. Prop Alex Corbisiero is also under an injury cloud, so Australian born Ireland prop Tom Court joins the Lions squad as cover.On the balance of the first Test, one might say that the Lions were lucky to take the win. They played some great rugby but the Wallabies had very little luck, missing early kicks at goal from James O’Connor, losing key players to injury, and of course missing those late Beale kicks at goal.It’ll be interesting to see the approach to the next Test as both units will have to rebuild, restructure and reinvent themselves somewhat, especially the Wallabies, if they aim to take the series victory.

The building features a plethora of handcrafted and artisanal details, none more striking than the signature façade of rough-hewn bluestone quarried in upstate New York. The hand-laid façade is already an impressive addition to one of Manhattan’s most desired residential neighborhoods, creating an engaging contrast when seen among TriBeCa’s historic loft buildings and modern glass structures.

Windows are 7 feet tall, allowing for an abundance of natural light to fill each home.

Solidarity with the people of Ecuador & Brazil

first_imgU.S. imperialism attempts to undermine any government in Latin America that exhibits independence from Washington’s dictates. In the past weeks especially, the governments of Ecuador and Brazil have been facing protest demonstrations, including rightist elements, which are promoted by imperialist media.The following statement was written by leftist intellectuals in the region opposing U.S. intervention and translated by WW managing editor John Catalinotto.Network of Intellectuals, Artists and Social Movements in Defense of Humanity.Photo: teleSURtv.netAug. 20, 2015We, representatives of social movements of Panama, as a broad expression from the Panamanian people, first of all express our strong support for the statement by the Political Council of the ALBA-TCP, developed at an extraordinary meeting in Caracas on Aug. 10. [ALBA-TCP is a trade agreement among Latin American nations. — WW]Likewise, we denounce the plans of imperialism, which by using strategies of destabilization, stalks and conspires to overturn progressive governments of the region legitimately elected by their ­peoples.It is no coincidence that demonstrations with similar characteristics are taking place simultaneously in countries whose peoples have decided to take the path of emancipation. Such demonstrations are encouraged and supported by external elements and the media that serve the interests of the oligarchies.This description fits the specific cases involving the incessant attacks against Argentina, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the Republic of Ecuador, the Plurinational State of Bolivia and more recently against the Federal Republic of Brazil and the Republic of Ecuador, where similar destabilization scripts have been repeated, put into effect through financing, training, manipulation and other strategies of UNCONVENTIONAL WARFARE,* like those that have already been carried out in countries such as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Ukraine and others, in order to undermine the sovereignty and seize natural resources belonging to the people.*According to Training Circular 18-01, one of the principal U.S. documents on the doctrine of unconventional warfare for the Special Forces Operations of the United States Army, unconventional warfare is interference in a country, and its political purpose is to obtain dominance without using war technology. It is a physical penetration of a political, economic and cultural character, carried out by a powerful country in unequal conditions in order to force the other country to submit and to expropriate its water, mineral and/or energy resources. This tactic has been devised not only as a major form of aggression, but as a strategic tool of U.S. foreign policy.The United States deploys all its might beyond its borders, using a strategy that is not in itself new, but it is now assigning this strategy a new level of priority. Acts of unconventional warfare are those aiming to undermine and degrade the morale and the political, psychological, military and economic strength of the country as well as to trigger events that are catalysts for creating conditions leading to foreign intervention.The media play a crucial role in this strategy. In Panama, for example, we have a press that misrepresents the facts, spreads disinformation and distorts the news in the interest of powerful groups in the country.In this regard, we reaffirm our commitment to respect the sovereignty of states and non-intervention in the internal affairs of our people. At the same time, we express our repudiation of the attempt to undermine the democratic institutions of Ecuador and Brazil, carried out by sectors of the right wing orchestrated by U.S. imperialism and groups possessing media and economic power at an international level. We support the people and the government led by President Rafael Correa in Ecuador and President Dilma Rousseff in Brazil, in their efforts to solve their problems while preserving peace, democracy and the well-being of their peoples. We reject the implementation of “soft coups,” through the use of psychological warfare operations that undermine legitimately constituted governments using the means of communications.Likewise, the undersigned reaffirm the need to strengthen the continental unity of our peoples and regional integration, to address these threats, in order to defend human rights, our sovereignty and the free development of our peoples.We the undersigned: Network of Intellectuals, Artists and Social Movements in Defense of Humanity, Panama chapter.Coordinators: Ana Maria Pinilla V; Gilma Camargo; Association of Relatives and Friends of the Fallen of Dec. 20, 1989 – Trinidad Ayola; Broad Front for Democracy-FAD; Peoples Party – Moisés Carrasquilla; Citizens’ Pole – Olmedo Beluche; Independent Movement for National Refoundation – MIREN.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Oakland, Calif., rally against racist verdict

first_imgHundreds rallied June 17 at Oscar Grant Plaza in downtown Oakland, Calif., angered by the not-guilty verdict for the cop who killed Philando Castile. The rally was called by a 16-year-old Oakland High School student, who opened the rally talking about Black Lives Matter and the need to use the phrase “police terror,” rather than police brutality. She opened the mic to any of the Black people in the audience who wished to speak. One at a time, people got up and told how this police murder and the not-guilty verdict affected them.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

¡Tolerancia cero! ¡Abusadores fuera!

first_imgEl siguiente editorial fue escrito por personas no conformes de género y mujeres miembros de Workers World Party/ Partido Mundo Obrero.El movimiento progresista ha recorrido un largo camino desde su vergonzosa historia de abuso de género. Todavía hay una montaña gigantesca para escalar hacia el socialismo, la equidad de género y la justicia. Vinculamos los brazos y seguiremos subiendo juntos.Debemos afirmar rotundamente que nos protegeremos mutuamente del racismo, el sexismo, la homofobia, el poder y el abuso. Si queremos tener éxito, los abusadores y sus facilitadores no deben ser bienvenidos en nuestros espacios o en nuestro movimiento.Al consultar el ensayo de 2010, “Por qué los misóginos son grandes informantes” de la activista y académica de género negra Courtney Desiree Morris, descubrimos que el peligro es doble. Misóginos y abusadores persiguen a las personas de género oprimido fuera del movimiento.Temiendo por nuestra seguridad y en el reconocimiento de que las vidas y contribuciones de mujeres trans y cis, hombres trans, lesbianas, personas homosexuales y personas que no cumplen con el género no se valoran de la misma manera que los hombres cis (heteros), desconfiamos de entrar en espacios donde no se no apoya.Perder compañeros en el movimiento siempre es un detrimento, y perder la perspectiva única de que los compañeros oprimidos por el género contribuyen a la lucha es un camino al fracaso. Al aceptar a los abusadores en los espacios de movimiento, permitimos un terreno fértil para la infiltración estatal que aprovecha los estragos que crean los abusadores.Las personas de género oprimido tienen derecho a defenderse del abuso, la homofobia y la misoginia. Tenemos derecho a responsabilizar a las organizaciones que no apoyan nuestra autodeterminación. Los espacios y las organizaciones que no tienen esto en cuenta crean una situación insostenible para el siglo XXI.Se espera que las mujeres y otras personas de género oprimido se silencien y sufran abusos en un esfuerzo por construir la unidad. ¿Unidad para quién? No la unidad con las mujeres y otras personas de género oprimido que tienen todo el derecho de insistir en su inclusión en el movimiento. Después de todo, también estamos luchando por la liberación. Somos la columna vertebral de la lucha por la liberación.Los abusadores y sus facilitadores verán esta insistencia por la seguridad como prueba de que no estamos poniendo el movimiento primero. Se nos dice que “cerremos los ojos y pensemos en el socialismo”. Pero, ¿qué socialismo podemos visualizar cuando no podemos estar seguros de que priorizará nuestra seguridad y nuestras contribuciones? Solo podemos ver una forma de socialismo que prioriza nuestra seguridad y contribuciones.Bajo una administración de Trump que está atacando los cuerpos de mujeres, personas trans y GNC, las personas de género oprimido tienen una ira cada vez mayor. Es una ira justa. Nuestro temor de que nuestros camaradas y aliados en el movimiento no nos apoyen se manifiesta cada vez que se permite que un abusador permanezca en nuestro movimiento.Si bien la justicia transformadora es un modelo importante para desarrollar, no se puede practicar en un entorno donde las mujeres y las personas de género oprimido se sientan bajo amenaza física. No puede desarrollarse en un entorno en el que sentimos que nuestros camaradas y aliados no nos apoyen. No se puede desarrollar en un entorno donde los abusadores no se responsabilicen por sus acciones.Hasta que haya una unidad en torno a eliminar a los abusadores de nuestro movimiento, no puede haber discusión sobre cómo traerlos de regreso como individuos sanados.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

And after the ‘Horse Outside’ star made a serious impression on RTÉ’s Late Late Show, he is now at 40/1 to become the next President of Ireland.BoyleSports have introduced Blindboy into the betting for the next Presidential election after his eloquent contribution as part of a panel to discuss the 1916 commemoration on the Late Late Show.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “My generation are either leaving the country or jumping in rivers,” he proclaimed during the debate.Known to passport control as Dave Chambers, Blindboy made a real impression on viewers and as a result has been installed into the betting at 40/1 after viewers expressed their opinions about the Limerick man becoming the next President of Ireland on social media.“Blindboy certainly made an impression on the Late Late Show on Friday night with the public quick to react on social media wanting the Rubberbandits member as a future president of Ireland,” Liam Glynn of BoyleSports explained.“Despite currently being a long shot at 40/1, if the public continue to get behind the Limerick man we could see his odds shorten up and wouldn’t it be some sight to see Blindboy’s horse outside Áras an Uachtaráin,” he added.Currently, Mairead McGuinness is the favourite at 11/2 to take over from Michael D Higgins with RTE presenter, Miriam O’Callaghan next in the betting at 6/1. Long shots for the role include former Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern at 100/1, Gerry Adams at 80/1 and Dana Rosemary Scallon who has run as a candidate on two previous occasions at 66/1.
