Two tries from Henry Slade in the last quarter of this Six Nations match in Dublin secure England a famous win over Ireland LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Henry Slade scores brace as England beat defending champions IrelandHenry Slade scored two tries in ten minutes to seal England’s 32-20 Six Nations win over Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.The defending champions were the favourites for this first-round match in Dublin, but England put the hosts under pressure with their kicking game and were clinical when creating scoring opportunities in the second half to secure a bonus-point victory.The crucial score game in the 67th minute. England led 17-13 and from a scrum in the middle of the pitch, they opted to attack the blindside with Ben Youngs passing to Slade and the centre sending the ball out to Jonny May on the touchline.With Ireland’s defenders drawn to the threat of May’s pace and Slade highlighting the space in front of him, the winger kicked downfield and his team-mate had green grass in front of him to touch down.Referee Jerome Garces called in the TMO to check that Slade hadn’t been in front of May when the kick was made. It was tight but he wasn’t in front and the try stood.Watch the try here…Ten minutes later, Slade then added gloss to the victory by intercepting a Johnny Sexton pass in the Ireland 22. He fell over but retained possession, got up and stretched over the line.

Data released by the Department of Agriculture indicates net farm income could rise 10 percent this year to roughly $69 billion, following a 16 percent decline in 2018. But American Farm Bureau Federation Chief Economist John Newton says these early projections offer a best-case scenario.“It’s important for folks to remember that this is a very, very early estimate of what farm income could look like in 2019. USDA assumes in this forecast record production of livestock products, they assume trend yields for many of the major field crops, and they also assume slightly higher prices for many of the commodities, except for pork and soybeans.”Newton says there are many uncertainties that could change this outlook.“The expectation is for slightly higher farm income in 2019, but this is still a really early estimate. A number of uncertainties remain when you think about weather conditions, you think about acreage allocations, and ultimately, we need to see these tariffs removed for us to continue to serve those key export markets.”He says the forecast also shows a low return on assets for farmers and ranchers.“USDA’s most recent projections have U.S. farmer, on average, return to assets of about 1.3 percent. That’s about half what you would get from the U.S. Treasury equities, and well below the average rate of return for many other financial instruments. And this is at a level that we haven’t seen since the ‘80s and 2000s. So, return on assets remains very, very low.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Economists Explain USDA’s Early Projections for Increased Farm Income in ’19 Economists Explain USDA’s Early Projections for Increased Farm Income in ’19 SHARE By NAFB News Service – Mar 10, 2019 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleCommentary: It is National Ag Day, AgainNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 11, 2019 NAFB News Service
September 28, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Decriminalization urged after suspended jail terms for two journalists PeruAmericas News to go further December 4, 2019 Find out more Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable China’s diplomats must stop attacking media over coronavirus reporting News News PeruAmericas Follow the news on Peru News Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites April 1, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today urged Peru to quickly decriminalize press offences after a court in the southern city of Arequipa passed two-year suspended prison sentences on 22 September on Fritz Du Bois (photo), the editor of the daily Perú21, and Gessler Ojeda, one of his reporters, in a libel case. The court also fined them 30,000 soles (10,700 dollars).“This sentence contradicts the promise that President Ollanta Humala gave at a forum organized by the Press and Society Institute (IPYS) on 29 April, during the election campaign, to refrain from bringing any prosecution against journalists in connection with their work,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are also still awaiting promulgation of an amendment to the criminal code eliminating prisons sentences for defamation. Peru must respect the Inter-American system’s judicial decisions, which rule out imprisonment for media offences. Decriminalization must be implemented without delay.”The libel suit against Perú21 was prompted by a story by Ojeda last March about Ana María Solórzano Flores, the leading parliamentary candidate of Humala’s party, Gana Perú, in Arequipa. It claimed that relatives of Solórzano, above all her aunt, Rosario Flores Bedregal, were linked to prostitution. In a column in the same issue, Du Bois accused Solórzano of lacking experience and suggested that her relatives were financing her campaign.It was the aunt, Rosario Flores Bedregal, who brought the libel suit against the two journalists. The suspension of their jail sentences is conditional on their complying with judicial controls that restrict their movements. Press reports quoted their lawyer, Augusto Loli Carrillo, as describing the sentence as “arbitrary,” “illegal” and “biased.” He said they would appeal.Reporters Without Borders takes this opportunity to reiterate its call for the immediate release of Paul Garay Ramírez, a programme producer for Visión 47 TV and a correspondent for Radio La Exitosa, who was sentenced to three years in prison on 19 April for allegedly defaming a prosecutor although no evidence was presented against him. The sentence was subsequently reduced to 18 months. Receive email alerts Organisation February 10, 2017 Find out more RSF_en
News RSF_en News to go further Detained and accused by the Cameroonian authorities of being a terrorist, Samuel Wazizi disappeared on 7 August 2019, the date on which he was removed from a police station in the western city of Buea and taken to a military installation in the same city.A journalist working for Chillen Music Television (CMTV), Wazizi had been arrested by the Buea police five days earlier, on 2 August 2019, when he told his lawyer – the last of his friends and associates to see him alive – that he had been arrested for criticizing the government’s handling of the crisis in the English-speaking parts of the country.It took ten months for the Cameroonian authorities to concede that Wazizi died in detention, and they did so only after reports of his death in the national press.Col. Serge Cyrille Atonfack, the defence ministry’s spokesman, said on 5 June 2020 that Wazizi, who he described as an “active member of a separatist group,” had died of a body-wide infection in Yaoundé’s military hospital on 17 August 2019. “He was not subjected to any act of torture of physical mistreatment,” Atonfack claimed, adding that the family had been notified.For ten months, the Cameroonian authorities concealed his death and refused to provide any information about his fate to his family and lawyers, and to NGOs that had raised the issued. The Cameroonian judicial authorities themselves seemed to know nothing about what had happened to Wazizi when his and his family’s lawyers petitioned the courts in a vain attempt to get information.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has seen photos of Wazizi that were taken in Yaoundé, the Cameroonian capital, on 13 August 2019, the day that he was brought there from Buea. The photos show many injuries on different parts of his body.“A journalist in perfect health who suddenly dies in detention while presenting injuries typical of acts of torture, a family that was never notified although the authorities say it was, a justice system that continued to receive petitions from lawyers about a journalist who had been dead for months, an extremely belated and reluctant recognition by the authorities of his death, and a body that was never returned to the family… Much still needs explaining but the Cameroonian authorities are as silent as ever,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The absence of credible explanations led us to refer this case to three United Nations special rapporteurs in August and to ask them to press the Cameroonian authorities to conduct an investigation into the exact circumstances that led to this journalist’s death.”Clément Boursin, who is responsible for Africa at ACAT-France, said: “The National Commission on Human Rights and Freedoms (CNDHL) told ACAT-France on 9 October 2020 that an investigation was carried out by military intelligence and the findings were given to President Paul Biya. However, although it is supposed to be independent and impartial and although it should use all of its influence to ensure that light is shed on a journalist’s death, the CNDHL told ACAT-France that, ‘in the light of Samuel Wazizi’s terrorist activities at the time of his arrest, we do not think it is essential for the president to publicly report the details of this case’.”Was the enquiry independent and impartial? Was it carried out by an agency that was not involved in this journalist’s detention? What methods did it use? Was there an autopsy? In the absence of any communication about the enquiry’s findings, many questions remain unanswered about the circumstances leading to Wazizi’s death.The Cameroonian authorities were responsible for Samuel Wazizi’s safety while they were holding him. They must provide his family and lawyers with a complete account of the circumstances of his detention and death, ACAT-France and RSF insist.Wazizi’s body has still not been returned to his family. Until the family recovers his body, he will continue to be a missing person.Transparency is needed to shed light on Samuel Wazizi’s death. Those responsible must be identified.Cameroon is ranked 134th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Twitter Linkedin GARRYOWEN native Derek Murphy is missing after his boat capsized on the Mississippi River on Saturday afternoon near New Orleans.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Derek, who is in his forties, was a member of the Garryowen AIL League winning team in 1991.According to the US Coast Guard Mr Murphy and the man he was travelling with were last seen on Saturday at about 2.30pm.A search and rescue operation using a helicopter and several boats carried out by members of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries lasted for three days.It is believed that the two men got into difficulty when their small, light, flat bottomed boat became stuck amid a fleet of barges.The Mississippi river is said to be dangerous for small boats and unfortunately neither man was wearing a lifejacket.Mr Murphy, who worked in the construction industry, emigrated to the US more than ten years ago. Rhebogue councillor Kieran O’Hanlon said that it was a terrible tragedy, “From a community point of view, my sympathies go to his family who have been very active with Richmond Rugby and Geraldines soccer club”.

Print Email Facebook Twitter Advertisement Waiting lists could be slashed – consultantTHE MID-WEST’S only consultant orthodontist wants immediate action taken by the government to address public waiting lists for children needing braces.Dr Ted McNamara of St Camillus Hospital, points out that recommendations made eight years can free up four-year waiting lists at little cost-if introduced.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Private treatment, he said, costs up to £4,000 – “which is a huge amount of money for most”.He alleged that there is a lot of obscene dental politics involved.“Politicians are afraid to take action on 2002 and 2005 reports from the Joint Oireachtais Committees on Health and Children, that made very good recommendations.“They found that certain practices are artificially blocking the system and creating longer waiting lists -these politicians need to have the courage to implement the changes recommended”. Dr McNamara has written to Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly, and asked him to implement the recommendations.Biteback, a group of concerned parents who are working together for children in need of braces, also want the government to act.At the first public meeting on the issue last year, 300 parents with children on the HSE orthodontic waiting list turned up. Biteback secretary, Ursula Cosgrove, explained the situation to the Limerick Post:“We are frustrated with the long delays and want to hear from parents in the same situation. My child was on the list for orthodontic treatment for eight years”.The parent-run group is developing a website which will include an online petition.“We want our children taken off the waiting list and we need to get our current Minister for Health to act”.The issue, she added, is affecting hundreds of parents. “At present, they are visiting local health centres and being told the waiting list is three to four years, and that they are better off going private. A lot of parents aren’t even going on the waiting list, so if we have 1,100 and 1,200 children in the Mid West, that’s not a true reflection.“There are thousands of children in need of treatment”She said that internationally, 30% of children needed orthodontic treatment, which means that the correct figure for the Mid West could be around 6,000.“We would encourage parents to put their children on the waiting list to make it more accurate”.Biteback meet at Watchhouse Cross library on the first Thursday of every month.Anyone seeking more information can contact Biteback via email at [email protected] Linkedin WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsParents bite back on orthodontic issuesBy admin – May 19, 2011 769 Previous articleMoney scams rampant in LimerickNext articleNews briefs admin

Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Print WhatsApp A €30 million commercial power plant, which could create dozens of jobs and provide enough energy to power more than one thousand homes has reached the planning stage.Plans for the project, along with an environmental impact statement, have been lodged with the local authority concerning the proposed project at Ballymorris, just off the Ennis-Limerick road.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The 12.4 hectare farm will be connected to the national grid and will generate enough electricity to power 1,200 homes over a 25-year period.Following a number of pre-planning meetings with the local planning authority, Terra Solar will lodge its first planning application to develop a solar farm at its Ballymorris site in Cratloe in the coming weeks.The company has has applied for this and five other sites in the county for grid connection to ESB Networks.Requiring an investment of €5 million each, the six sites in the Shannon area will provide enough electricity to power 6,000 homes.The company says that jobs will be created in the construction phase of the plan although other than security monitoring, it is unlikely that any full time jobs will be involved in the resulting construction.The overall investment will also make the Shannon region more attractive for new industry as the overall energy created by the local solar farms would almost be the equivalent of decarbonising Shannon.“It will create a good platform to attract multinationals such as the likes of Google and Apple, who want to source renewable energy. It should lead to a springboard for other jobs.” said Terra Solar director Andre Fernon.
