Pelu Taele given a straight red card for high hit against Bayonne

first_imgWednesday Sep 16, 2009 Pelu Taele given a straight red card for high hit against Bayonne Biarritz hosted Bayonne in a Top 14 derby match at Estadio Anoeta, San Sebastien in Spain this past weekend. The match was as expected, highly physical and confrontational, with Biarritz winning 12-6.The match was without tries, but still delivered in terms of intensity and entertainment, despite being much of a forward based battle.It was 6-6 at halftime, with Valentine Courrent and Benjamin Arrayet exchanging penalties before Bayonne attempted to spread the all in the second period.Australian Rodney Rodzilla Blake received a yellow card for his part in an altercation, but it was Samoan lock Jordan Pelu Taele-Pavihi who had a moment of madness early in the second half, as he attempted to behead Pepito Elhorga.Elhorga cut inside at full tilt before the huge Samoan stuck a massive forearm out that effectively clothes-lined the Bayonne winger.Taele-Pavihi had been warned earlier in the match after a hit on Craig Gower, so was given a straight red by the referee for this dangerous high shot.Biarrtiz played the last half hour with fourteen men, but still came out on top thanks for another two penalties by Courrent.When asked earlier today about the incident, Taele was regretful.“It wasnt a good tackle. I’m quite disappointed at myself but cant do anything about it!” Time: 0:53ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

N Ireland leads the way in giving, says NICVA

first_img  197 total views,  3 views today Advertisement N Ireland leads the way in giving, says NICVA Tagged with: Individual giving NICVA Northern Ireland Research / statistics Howard Lake | 31 January 2017 | News Nearly 70% of respondents in 2016 donated to charity over a four week period in Northern Ireland, an increase of 11% on a similar survey in 2015.The 2016 Individual Giving Survey undertaken by the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) marked an increase in giving, with 68% of respondents reporting that they donated money to charity over a four week period which equates to an estimated 977,166 people aged 16+ years in Northern Ireland.This marks an increase from 2015 when 57% stated that they donated money to charity, and is similar to 2011 levels (66%). At UK wide level 39% of people were reported to give money to charity in a typical month according to the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).The survey found that a large proportion of respondents donated money to charity (89%) over the last 12 months. This marks an increase of 8 percentage points from 2015, and this figure is considerably higher than UK wide levels which stand at 62%.These findings suggest that people in Northern Ireland are more likely to donate money to charity than other parts of the UK, and this is supported by CAF’s geographical analysis of giving.What is the main barrier to stop you giving to charity?This analysis found that participation in eight charitable activities (for example donating money to charity, giving goods to charity, sponsoring someone for charity) was highest in ‘Ulster’ (89%). Other charitable regions included South West England (88%), Scotland (86%) and South East England (86%). Other research studies have also reported that Northern Ireland is the UK region most likely to give to charity. For example, one study conducted by Barclays titled the UK Wealth Prosperity Map, found that Northern Ireland is the UK’s most charitable region despite ranking sixth for prosperity.Researchers from the CASS Business School at the University of London suggested high levels of giving in Northern Ireland are linked to high levels of church attendance which is considered to provide an impetus and framework for giving.

Cameroonian authorities confuse journalism with spying

first_img News News Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case Organisation Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Cameroon Zacharie Ndiomo, the editor of the bimonthly Le Zénith, spent months in pre-trial detention as a result of a criminal libel suit brought by finance ministry secretary-general Urbain Ebang Mve. Now he is awaiting a second trial on the same charge because the plaintiff thinks the court was too lenient at the first trial.Cameroon is ranked 133rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. April 23, 2021 Find out more CameroonAfrica September 16, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cameroonian authorities confuse journalism with spying Receive email alerts CameroonAfrica center_img May 31, 2021 Find out more News Case against Amadou Vamoulké baseless, French lawyers tell Cameroon court May 19, 2021 Find out more Two journalists – freelance investigative reporter Simon Ateba and Radio France Internationale correspondent Ahmed Abba – are being held illegally by the Cameroonian authorities, who claim that their journalistic work constituted spying.Ateba has been in a jail in the northern city of Mokolo for the past six days after being arrested as he was leaving the Minawao camp for Nigerian refugees, where he had been investigating conditions in the camp.The authorities insist he was spying although he previously told them he wanted to report on conditions there. Since being incarcerated, he has not had access to a lawyer or to his medicine, although he told the prison authorities he needed treatment.“Because of the stalling tactics used by the authorities to prevent him going to the camp, Ateba found another way of getting access to information that was in the public interest,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“It should not be forgotten that Ateba clearly notified the Cameroonian authorities of his intentions from the outset. Is this how a spy behaves? We call for the immediate release of Ateba, who is well known in both Nigeria and Cameroon for his professionalism. It is inconceivable that he was acting as a spy.”Ateba had a grant from the Nigeria-based International Centre for Investigative Reporting to do this report.His case is not isolated.Abba, who is a local Hausa-language reporter for RFI, was arrested on 30 July in the northern city Maroua, where he was working. After 15 days in police custody, he was transferred to Yaoundé, where he has been held incommunicado ever since, with his lawyer being able to see him or have access to his case file.RFI regards his continuing detention as “extra-judicial” in nature because all the deadlines for taking him before a judge and charging him have been exceeded. RFI is pressing for his lawyer to be allowed see Abba and the case file.“It is unacceptable that a journalist whose professionalism cannot be doubted should be treated as a dangerous criminal and in a completely illegal manner. We call on the authorities to respect the law and Abba’s rights, and to release him without delay.” says Reporters Without Borders.Reporters Without Borders has been unsuccessful in its attempts to reach communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakari in order to find out exactly what these two journalists are alleged to have done. Bakari made paternalistic and threatening comments to journalists on 25 August. “It is the media’s duty to speak highly of our nation, to sing the praises of a nation that stands tall and progresses despite difficulties,” he said.In Cameroon, journalists are often harassed and intimidated, some have been detained in recent months and others have been the victims of abusive judicial proceedings. They include Félix Cyriaque Ebole Bola of the newspaper Mutations and Rodrigue Tongue of the newspaper Le Messager, who have been awaiting trial before a military court since October 2014 for allegedly failing to report information of a security nature to the police.

I encountered lots of questions,” Judi explains.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Can you change the past? Beth’s mum, Fiona, fell down the stairs and died when Beth was a baby. When she meets Fiona as a young girl in 1984, Beth is desperate to save her. But if Fiona doesn’t die, Beth’s life will be completely different, and the first part of my book will make no sense at all.“Like I said, there are lots of questions, many of which have no answers, partly because I hope to write a series, and I don’t want to tie myself up in knots.”‘Time After Time’ was published on September 5 and is available now in all Limerick bookshops. Many of Judi’s previous works have been bestsellers in Ireland with her books also published in many countries including Australia, Brazil, Spain, Germany and Russia.
