Air New Zealand Cup – Round 3 Highlights

first_imgSaturday Aug 22, 2009 Air New Zealand Cup – Round 3 Highlights Round three of the Air New Zealand Cup produced a few classic tries, and closely contested matches. So far this season, the tournament has experienced great success, with fans from all over the country getting out and supporting their sides.In Christchurch Canterbury ran Waikato ragged with five tries as they romped to a 46-13 win. Dan Carter was on form again, as he sent the impressive Colin Slade through the gap, who then offloaded for Tim Bateman to cross for a nice try.Big prop Wyatt Crockett scored too, finding a gap and sprinting from 25 meters out to cross for a nice try from a front rower.Manawatu beat Southland 25-13, with their electric young winger Andre Taylor scoring two tries as both himself, and young flyhalf Aaron Cruden, stuck their hands up for higher honours in the future.In the match in Kerikeri, which we featured a few days ago, Joe Rokocoko hit his straps as he helped Dave Thomas score a nice try in the corner.The match of the weekend though was the Taranaki Hawkes Bay meeting, in which they drew 24-24 after a late try by Taranaki was disallowed by a poor ref decision.The game produced two incredible tries though, amazingly, one directly after the other.First it was Jason Kupa who crossed after some brilliant hands from forwards and backs, including a neat flick from Zac Guildford.Straight from the kickoff, they were at it again, with superb interplay and support by Thomas Waldrom and Jason Shoemark, with Shoemark finishing off a brilliant team try.It was a great weekend of action, with this short video hopefully giving you an idea of some of the quality rugby being played in New Zealand’s provincial championship.

Museum of London uses NFC for information and purchases

first_img Advertisement The Museum of London is one of the first public organisations in the UK to use NFC (Near Field Communications). By tapping their phone near to an exhibit they can receive information on their phone faster than with Bluetooth or QR codes.In addition, according to Springwise.com, “by tapping their phone on sensor tags around the museums users are able to access vouchers for the museums’ shops and cafés, book tickets for future exhibitions, receive more information about exhibits, join the Museum’s Friends scheme, and buy prints.” So the system has considerable income generation potential.www.museumoflondon.org.uk/Explore-online/NFC.htm  37 total views,  1 views today Museum of London uses NFC for information and purchases AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Howard Lake | 14 October 2011 | News  38 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Last year’s campaign raised £7.1 million for Macmillan, with more than half (55%) of the 23,000 people who signed up opted to take part because their loved ones had been affected by cancer and they wanted to do something to make a difference. The 2017 campaign will again focus on the Shavers’ stories as they reveal their motivations and reasons for taking part.The project included an overhaul of the charity’s current website technology following on from Macmillan’s wider digital transformation plans. Initials worked closely with Macmillan on the development of the new Brave the Shave website, to helping to more closely align the product portfolio with Macmillan’s plans, and to streamline internal processes and drive greater operational efficiency.Lisa Shorter, National Events Marketing Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said:“Initials was selected after a thorough competitive pitch and evaluation process, we were impressed with the breadth of skills and expertise, as well as the team’s dedicated approach to delivering in true partnership. We are very happy with the results.”Dipesh Bhimjiyani, Head of Digital at Initials, said: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Ireland and Mexico act to reduce global warming

first_imgWhile the Trump administration in the U.S. continues to deny the pressing impact of global warming — and acts to reduce environmental protections for the benefit of gas, oil and coal companies — governments in at least two other countries have taken positive actions in recent weeks.On July 12, the Republic of Ireland became the first country in the world to divest from fossil fuel companies. Then, on Aug. 1, Mexico’s President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador pledged to outlaw hydraulic fracturing, a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.The Irish Parliament ratified the Fossil Fuel Divestment Bill to compel the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund to sell off its shares in coal, oil, peat and gas “as soon as practicable [within five years].”  To emphasize that, “A message to the Irish government to divest from fossil fuels is spelled out in lights in front of the lower house of parliament.” (Guardian, July 12) The bill is expected to become law before the end of 2018.Previously, Norway had divested from some fossil fuels, targeting coal companies, but still has major gas and oil holdings.  Globally, the movement to divest from fossil fuels has impacted trillions of dollars of investment funds from pensions, insurers, cities, including New York, churches and universities.The Irish state holds more than $367 million in fossil fuel investments in 150 companies. “The bill considers a company to be a fossil fuel company if 20 percent or more of its revenue stems from exploration, extraction, or refinement of fossil fuels.”Unlike the U.S., which recently pulled out of the 2016 Paris Agreement on global warming, the bill enforces Ireland’s climate change commitments to the agreement and has bipartisan backing throughout the government.   In June, Ireland was ranked the second-worst European country on climate action, so the passage of this bill is welcome news. Environmental activists view this as a powerful statement.Mexico to ban frackingLópez Obrador, who won Mexico’s presidential election on July 7, stated in a press conference on Aug. 1 that he will ban hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”).  Fracking for natural gas is thought to be a major contributor to higher atmospheric levels of carbon monoxide (CO) gas directly linked to increasing global warming.Food and Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter applauded this call, while urging López Obrador to “move even further by pledging to transition Mexico to a fully clean, renewable energy future, thereby setting a remarkable example for its neighbors to the north.” (Mintpressnews.com, Aug. 1)López Obrador, who will take office on Dec. 1, also spoke out in opposition to the 2013 privatization of Mexico’s oil and gas reserves, which had been previously controlled by the state-owned Federal Electricity Commission (CFE).  He accused the previous neoliberal government of deliberately closing the CFE plants to buy electricity from foreign countries at very high prices.These measures demonstrate that progress is being made in the worldwide  campaign to curtail global warming, stop corporate pollution and move toward “a clean, renewable energy future.” But the movement must go further and challenge the capitalists who ravage the earth in their drive for superprofits, no matter what damage they cause. The capitalist system is the main danger to the planet and its inhabitants. It’s time to say so!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Attempts to censor and intimidate two Kabul news media

first_img Organisation RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan News News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns attempts to censor Pajhwok Afghan News and Radio Killid after they reported that there was a shootout on 25 July at a Kabul clinic between gunmen working for two Members of Parliament. An attempt was also made to intimidate the head of the Killid Media Group.“The government’s interference in the activities of Radio Killid and Pajhwok Afghan News is illegal and constitutes a direct attack on their independence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “No official or elected representative should be allowed to violate media freedom by trying to censor criticism. This is an abuse of authority.”The sequence of violent events began when a man employed by the MP Mulavi Tarakhel went to a clinic in the Kabul district of Pul-i-Charkhi on 25 July for a medical check and insisted on seeing a doctor at once. The clinic’s staff refused, and other patients – who included gunmen working for another MP, Haji Allah Gul Mujahid – objected.Tarakhel’s man reportedly left but returned an hour late and began shooting indiscriminately inside the clinic. An exchange of shots began at about 5:30 pm and continued for seven hours without any intervention on the part of the security forces.Radio Killid carried an initial report about the gun battle and subsequent updates. Pajhwok Afghan News also covered it. Najiba Ayubi, a reporter who heads of the Killid Media Group, was quoted by Pajhwok Afghan News as saying: “We updated the report with quotes from security officials. We also did our bit to take comments from the MPs, but they could not be reached.”An information ministry official telephoned Ayubi at around 7:30 a.m. on 27 July and asked her to stop broadcasting reports on the incident. The information ministry later acknowledged calling the Killid Media Group but denied requesting the suppression of any information.Two unidentified individuals subsequently went to Ayubi’s home. She did not open the door.The two MPs filed a complaint which the information ministry passed on to the Media Offences Verification Commission. At a meeting on 31 July, the two MPs asked representatives from Pajhwok Afghan News and Radio Killid to apologize but they refused and called for a police investigation. Yesterday, the MPs asked the judicial authorities to start proceeding against the two media.“We regret that the two MPs are abusing their authority to censor news coverage and we point out that they can always use their right of reply, which is more conducive to a peaceful settlement of a dispute,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We support Pajhwok Afghan News and Radio Killid, which are among Afghanistan’s most professional media, and we urge the authorities to ensure their journalists are protected, especially Najiba Ayubi.” News May 3, 2021 Find out more Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report sayscenter_img Follow the news on Afghanistan August 3, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Attempts to censor and intimidate two Kabul news media June 2, 2021 Find out more News to go further RSF_en Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Help by sharing this information March 11, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
