Cipriani in as Jones names England’s RWC training squad of 35 players

first_imgThursday Jul 4, 2019 Cipriani in as Jones names England’s RWC training squad of 35 players England men’s head coach Eddie Jones has named his official Rugby World Cup 2019 training squad. There are four uncapped players in the group of 35 players, who will all assemble on Sunday for England’s first official training camp.ADVERTISEMENTJones said: “We can’t wait to have the full squad in place and to have players competing for those 31 places. It is a process of building the team up, building the cohesion, the tactical understanding of the team and our adaptability.“We will need to get those things right to win the World Cup, and that is our aim.”Premiership finalists Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs), Owen Farrell (Saracens), Jamie George (Saracens), Maro Itoje (Saracens), Ben Moon (Exeter Chiefs), Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs), Ben Spencer (Saracens), Billy Vunipola (Saracens) and Harry Williams (Exeter Chiefs) return to the England setup following their off-season.Joe Marler (Harlequins) is named after making himself available for selection. The 29 year-old prop retired from international rugby in last September having played 59 Tests for England.On Marler’s decision to come out of international retirement, Jones said “I saw Joe during the Barbarians’ week and he indicated that he had a desire to come back. We have since had a couple of chats and we have given him the opportunity to do that. Now it is up to him to show us what he has got.”Jones has included four uncapped players in the group. Gloucester Rugby’s halfback and captain Willi Heinz is joined by former England U20 forward Lewis Ludlam (Northampton Saints), former England Sevens player and Olympic silver medallist Ruaridh McConnochie (Bath Rugby) and Saracens’ new signing Jack Singleton.ADVERTISEMENTWhile not named in the initial 35-man squad, George Kruis (Saracens), Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs) and Mako Vunipola (Saracens) will continue their rehabilitation in camp and are still considered for selection.On his selection decisions Jones said: “World Cup selection is a four-year process. We have looked at the squad carefully, tried to build up a squad that has enough experience, attitude and energy to be winners and I think we have that. In the process, we have left out some players who can feel unlucky.“For those guys who have missed out, the door is never closed but they have just got to be ready, as you never know when the opportunity comes.”Following two weeks of England training camps, Jones added: “The last two camps have been a head start for us. It has allowed the guys who didn’t play in the semi-finals or final to get some good conditioning work in and also some fundamental skill work so we expect them to set a high standard when the rest of the squad join us on July 7.ADVERTISEMENT“The players have come in the best physical condition I have ever seen an England squad. The attitude of the players is that they are excited and hungry, they want to do well for themselves, their family and for their country.”With England’s first official training camp starting on Sunday Jones said: “For the fans it is the start of the journey so we want you to be with us; we are all in this together. We are looking forward to seeing your support.”Quilter International Fixtures:England vs Wales – 11 August – TwickenhamEngland vs Ireland – 24 August – TwickenhamEngland vs Italy – 6 September – NewcastleEngland vs Wales – 17 August – CardiffEngland will travel to Treviso, Italy for a heat camp from 22 July until 2 August before returning to Italy on 28 August until 5 September.

The annual report showed that its largest grant (£250,000) went to Townsend Street Presbyterian Church for the redevelopment of its school house. Other six figure grants were given to Action Cancer for medical equipment and to The MAC arts centre for capital work.Many grants are in the £10,000 to £30,000 bracket and reflect UGV’s interests in projects supporting disabled people, health, community, research, cultural and heritage and education and training.

Rally against ‘back-in-the-day’ firing

first_imgBefore unions were recognized in the auto industry, a worker could be fired for the slightest infraction, even laughing or talking.Things are different now in a union shop — but not as different as one might think. In Macomb County, a county north of Detroit credited with delivering Michigan to Trump in the November election, things are still a lot like the old days. There, at McLaren Hospital, an African-American woman lost her job for “slamming her hand on a desk and making an audible sigh.”Krystal Benson, chief steward with American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2569 and a hospital employee for three years, was also fired after being accused of putting her hand on her hip — hardly grounds for discharge! In her words, she had been “experiencing racial discrimination, being stereotyped, harassed, intimidation tactics and unfair labor practice.” Her termination came after an argument with a white supervisor.Macomb County is less than 9 percent Black, and Black residents make up only one-quarter of Mt. Clemens, where the hospital is located. The Trump election has emboldened racists, especially where they are the overwhelming majority.On June 3, Benson gathered outside the hospital with family members, co-workers and supporters from the Moratorium NOW! Coalition. Protesters carried signs charging the hospital with racism and demanding Benson be rehired. More protests are planned.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Prime Minister wages personal war against outspoken newspaper

first_imgNews News BangladeshAsia – Pacific BangladeshAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to stop hounding Daily Star editor Mahfuz Anam over his admission on 4 February that, like many of the country’s newspapers and TV stations, he published information in 2007 that seemed to implicate Hasina in corruption although it could not be verified independently.The information was provided to him and to Bangladesh’s other media outlets by the military, who were in power in Bangladesh from 2007 to 2009.In a 22 February address, Hasina called on Anam to resign, blamed his editorial error for her imprisonment at the time, insinuated that his newspaper had colluded with the military and accused him of trying to sabotage the constitution during the period of military-backed rule.Taking advantage of the outspoken and critical newspaper’s mistake, Hasina went on to ask the leaders of her party, the Awami League, to unanimously condemn the actions of Anam, currently the target of a campaign of harassment that is without precedent in Bangladesh.No fewer than 79 legal actions have been filed against Anam in the past three weeks in 53 districts throughout the country. Seventeen accuse him of sedition, which is punishable by three years in prison, and 62 accuse him of defamation, which carries a possible two-year sentence. More than a trillion taka (15 billion euros) in damages are being demanded by the plaintiffs, who do not include Hasina herself.“This public lynching, orchestrated by a prime minister who claims to respect democracy and media freedom in her country, is completely unacceptable,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“The law is being flouted on the pretext of seeking justice in what is just a matter of journalistic ethics. Mahfuz Anam can in no way be accused of sedition because he did not violate the constitution. And he cannot be prosecuted 72 times for the same mistake. It is time the Awami League understood that political opposition is necessary in a democracy and that suppressing critical media is a direct violation of fundamental freedoms and human rights.” Anam owned up to his error during a political discussion programme on the ATN News TV station on 4 February, acknowledging that he should not have run stories based solely on information provided by the Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI), which was running the country at the time.In his articles, Anam conceded that he had not been able to verify the authenticity of the confessions he was reporting. At the time only two publications, the daily New Age and the online newspaper bdnews24, refused to run stories based on the information.The English-language Daily Star and its sister newspaper Prothom Alo (the leading Bengali-language daily) provide critical coverage of all the various branches of government in Bangladesh.The country’s biggest companies, including mobile phone operations such Grameenphone, have been forbidden to advertise in either of these two independent newspapers for the past six months.The ban, issued by the DGFI on 16 August 2015, the day after the Daily Star ran a story about crimes newly committed by the military in the eastern division of Chittagong, has resulted in an approximately 30 percent loss in revenue for the newspapers. No Bangladeshi media outlets have reported the existence of this illegal and discriminatory order, which is designed to throttle the two newspapers economically.Bangladesh is ranked 146th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index.© Photo RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage May 19, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Bangladesh RSF_en News Organisation News February 26, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 Prime Minister wages personal war against outspoken newspaper to go further Receive email alerts February 26, 2021 Find out more February 22, 2021 Find out more Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activistslast_img read more

First arrests of bloggers after creation of anti-blasphemy committee

first_imgNews News Organisation February 26, 2021 Find out more to go further News February 22, 2021 Find out more BangladeshAsia – Pacific News The Dhaka police Detective Branch last night arrested three bloggers – Subrata Adhikari Shuvo, Mashiur Rahman Biplob and Rasel Parvez – for alleged posting “inflammatory” comments online on sensitive religious issues. Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to release them at once and to stop persecuting news providers. The three bloggers are the first to be arrested since the creation of a government committee to combat online blasphemy on 13 March.“The desire to restore calm does not justify persecuting non-religious bloggers, especially as these arrests, carried out on the pretext of combatting blasphemy, do not in any way guarantee an end to the tension and unrest linked to the current trial of former Islamist politicians for war crimes,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must stop trying to appease the Islamist groups and instead protect the country’s citizens.”Detective Branch spokesman Masudur Rahman told that the three bloggers were arrested in the Indira Road, Palashi and Monipuri Parha districts of Dhaka last night and that their laptop and personal computers were seized.Shuvo was identified as a Dhaka University student by classmate Abdur Rahim, who said he was arrested at the Jagannath university dormitory for minorities by two men who arrived at the entrance in a white minibus at around 10:30 pm.After several hours in police custody, a Dhaka court ordered them detained provisionally for seven days, the Daily Times reported.
