first_img Scott Williams starts at centre, replacing Jamie RobertsWALES HAVE named a side to play Australia in Brisbane this weekend showing four changes from that which sealed a 16-9 victory over France last March to be crowned Champions of Europe and achieve their third Grand Slam in seven seasons.In the front row Scarlets hooker Ken Owens replaces Matthew Rees and it’s all change in the second row with Bradley Davies (Blues) and Luke Charteris (Dragons) replacing Ian Evans – who joins the tour party immediately after his wedding this weekend – and Alun Wyn Jones (Ospreys), who moves to the bench.There is one change to the backline which remained together for the duration of the 2012 Six Nations clean sweep, with Scarlets centre Scott Williams replacing the injured Jamie Roberts (knee).That means 15 of the players who travelled to Brisbane early last week, and missed Wales’ 30-21 victory over the Barbarians at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, have been handed starting positions with the 16th, uncapped Ospreys centre Ashley Beck, providing cover from the bench.The rest of the replacements bench is made up of starters from the Baa-Baas victory, each of whom were involved in the match day 22 on Grand Slam day.Scarlets hooker Rees joins prop Paul James, lock Jones and back row Ryan Jones (all Ospreys) to provide cover for the forwards with Blues scrum-half Lloyd Williams and Perpignan pivot James Hook complete the line-up.“We are well prepared and looking forward to the challenge this weekend,” said Wales caretaker head coach Rob Howley.

first_img European Champions Cup final likened to Test matchAfter Saracens had beaten Leinster 20-10 to win this year’s European Champions Cup, players described the match as “Test-match quality”.It was a hugely physical match at St James’ Park in Newcastle and Saracens’ dominance of the tight exchanges drew comparison with England’s Six Nations win over Ireland in Dublin.“They’re two extremely physical games,” said Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell. “They were probably played in a different way but the main comparison I’d say is you definitely feel it after the game. You know you’ve been in a tough game and this was a Test match-like game.”Closed down: Brad Barritt is tackled by Johnny Sexton and Sean O’Brien (Getty Images)There were more than 400 tackles made in the game, Man of the Match Brad Barritt topping the charts with 28 and his Saracens team-mate George Kruis not far behind on 27. Even Maro Itoje, who spent ten minutes in the sin-bin, put in 23 tackles.It was that defensive effort that limited Leinster to just two line breaks. And it wasn’t just the big men who defended so resolutely. When Leinster were attacking early in the second half, Liam Williams rushed out of the defensive line to close down Garry Ringrose and win a turnover. That moment was one of many that demonstrated the intensity of both teams. The Leinster contingent agreed with the assessment of the match as international quality. Saracens and Leinster players compare physicality in Newcastle to international rugby Saracens already have this trophy in their cabinet but there is more silverware up for grabs this season for both the English side and Leinster in terms of the Gallagher Premiership and Guinness Pro12 respectively.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. “It was ferocious Test-match stuff,” said Leinster fly-half Johnny Sexton. “We knew it would be. And one thing I’d say is I’m unbelievably proud. We never took a backward step. There were times we weren’t missing any tackles but they’d make half a yard.“They’re very good at what they do and try to steamroller you and at times they did that very well.”Related: Saracens beat Leinster to be crowned European championsLeo Cullen pointed to the sheer size of the Saracens team and the inevitable impact that makes in a rugby match.Leinster’s director of rugby said: “They’re big, big men. Standing down in the tunnel, you see the size of Billy Vunipola, Maro Itoje and Will Skelton in particular. We don’t have access to many of that type of player and they wore us down for sure.“They squeezed the life out of us at times. They’re very comfortable defending and putting the squeeze on teams. They did that really well and strangled us in the last 20 minutes.”Impact sub: Vincent Koch makes a break against Leinster (Getty Images)As well as hailing Barritt’s influence in defence, Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall paid tribute to replacement props Richard Barrington and Vincent Koch. The pair came on for the injured Mako Vunipola and Titi Lamositele after half an hour and impressed at the scrummage while Koch was a rampaging force in the loose.McCall said: “Richard Barrington was superb and is a really important player for the club, on the field and off the field. The way he played was fantastic and Vincent Koch produced his best game of the season.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: LeinsterSaracens Euro stars: Will Skelton leads Saracens’ celebrations (Getty Images) last_img read more

first_imgMonday Apr 6, 2015 Mils Muliaina released on bail after post match arrest on Friday All Black legend Mils Muliaina has been released on bail following an awkward few days that started off with him being arrested directly after his team, Connacht, played Gloucester at Kingsholm. A statement has just confirmed that he has been released without charge. The arrest reportedly involves allegations of sexual assault that took place in Cardiff last month. South Wales Police are said to be continuing their investigation.Muliaina denies any wrong doing and reportedly felt that he was being hauled off for drug testing when the police seized him at Kingsholm in the full view of tv cameras.“When he got approached as he was walking off the pitch he thought he was getting drug tested – he just had no idea what was coming and was just shocked,” said manager Simon Porter, referring to what can be seen in this Vine video below.“I guess they’ve deemed that he was somehow a flight risk, given that he was living in Ireland, and they waited till he was back on British soil before they took any further steps. “He denies all allegations of wrongdoing and we’re sure that in time as all of it is processed we will clear his name.”Capped 100 times by New Zealand, the Connacht fullback recently signed a deal to move to Italian side Zebre in August. The World Cup winner is free to travel for now, but has been ordered to return to Wales in July.In the meantime police will investigate the claim made by a 19-year-old Cardiff female.“It’s just a matter of wait and see what happens next in to the police investigation,” said Porter.“He hasn’t been charged, they haven’t indicated whether he will be charged. He’s just agreed to return to Cardiff if and when required. There’s an ongoing police investigation and we’re just going to have to bide our time.”This evening’s release from Connacht stated:  Muliaina returned to Galway on Sunday April 5th having cooperated fully with police investigations. He denies any wrong doing and will meet with Connacht Rugby officials in the coming days to review the situation internally. As this remains a legal matter, Connacht Rugby can provide no further comment at this time.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

first_imgB&Q Foundation opens with grants of up to £5k available 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. B&Q has set up a new foundation, with grants of up to £5,000 available for local charities that support people experiencing bad housing or homelessness, as well as community projects looking to improve their spaces.The B&Q Foundation officially launched yesterday (5 October) with an initial fund of £500,000, raised this year to date by B&Q to support charities across the UK.It has already awarded its first grants and is now calling for charities to apply now for the next round of funding, which will be awarded before the end of the year.The Foundation awarded £175,000 in its first round of grants to 39 charities across the UK, ranging from homelessness and abuse charities, to children’s hospices and rehabilitation centres. The grants will be used for projects including creating community gardens, redecorating properties, and converting rooms at hostels to additional bedrooms.One of the first grants has been awarded to homelessness charity St Martins in Norwich (pictured), which supports vulnerable adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The £3,500 grant is being used to create a safe and welcoming outdoor area for clients to wait for appointments, and meet and socialise in without the fear of being moved on.Another charity, Herts Young Homeless charity in Hatfield, is using its £5,000 grant from the B&Q Foundation to help furnish accommodation for the vulnerable 16-24 year olds at risk of homelessness it supports.Catherine Burge, Transformation Director, B&Q and Chair, B&Q Foundation, said:“The B&Q Foundation was born out of a belief that anyone can improve where they live to make life better. We are committed to helping charities transform the environment around their clients, to have a positive impact on their physical and mental health. This year has been difficult for so many in different ways, with charities suffering the double whammy of falling donations and increased need for their services. It felt the right time to launch the Foundation and we look forward to supporting more charities and communities over the months and years to come.”The £500,000 raised this year to date was primarily from the sale of facemasks at B&Q, with all profits going to the B&Q Foundation. B&Q will continue to support the B&Q Foundation by launching further initiatives to raise funds in-store, as well as providing volunteers from its teams and donating products.  1,361 total views,  2 views today Tagged with: Funding grants Advertisement Melanie May | 6 October 2020 | News  1,362 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2last_img read more

first_imgRooftop solar water heaters are ubiquitous in China.It’s easy to feel gloomy when all your news input comes from the powerful media conglomerates controlling what most people in the U.S. see and hear. Their focus is on horror and violence, and there is plenty of that to go around.When it comes to the environment, we read about melting glaciers, deaths from sweltering heat, destructive storms and rising sea levels. We also hear about the Trump administration’s reactionary retreat from even the mildest government efforts to mitigate global warming. And, of course, all of this is true.But something else is going on in the world, and it’s very big. Yet, for obvious political reasons, we don’t hear much about it.You see, something CAN be done about global warming. And the country that is doing the most is one that just two generations ago was mired in poverty and underdevelopment: the People’s Republic of China.A report on how much new investment around the world was spent on renewable energy in 2017 was published this April 5 by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the sustainable energy finance center run by the United Nations Environment Programme, and the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.This report got barely any attention from the powerful mass media in this country. To them, it wasn’t newsworthy that almost half of the world’s new investment in wind, solar and other renewables — not even counting large hydroelectric projects — came from China. For every dollar that the U.S. invested in renewables, China spent three!For China, it was a 30 percent increase over 2016. U.S. investment in this sector, however, actually dropped by 6 percent last year. The exact figures on new renewable energy investments in 2017 were China $126.6 billion, the U.S. $40.5 billion.More than two-thirds of China’s investment went into solar energy, adding some 53 gigawatts of capacity. Wind was second, at nearly a third of the total.This is not at all where China intends to be in the future, however, as renewables still account for only 20 percent of its total energy use. China has four times the population of the U.S. and has also become a huge factory for the world, so it uses a lot of energy.A planned economyWhat is important about these investment figures is that the Chinese government is carrying out an economic plan for the overall development of its economy — and that plan extends well into the future. It has consistently reached its goals, year after year. It has proven that rational planning on this scale is not only possible but absolutely necessary to bring its huge population up out of poverty — and to meet the challenge of global warming.The United States has no such plan. How could it? The economy here is owned by competing and colluding billionaires whose driving purpose is to make as much money as possible. The government has long been the tool of this billionaire class. Trump has only made its totally chaotic and venal character more obvious.Yes, there are capitalist enterprises in China. There are even billionaires. And that’s a real danger for a country building socialism. The Chinese Revolution has had great advances, but also great setbacks.But the state, created by a profound revolution of the masses of people and led by the Communist Party, has not been overthrown. The working class itself has grown enormously since the revolution. In 2015, there were 225 million registered rural migrants working in the big cities — in other words, 225 million former peasants who had recently become proletarians.And they are not passive. The power of the workers in China has been seen over the last decade in the hundreds — maybe even thousands — of strikes that have demanded better wages and working conditions, mainly against capitalist companies owned by foreigners.Global warming is not an inevitability. It is tightly linked to which social class is in power. The day when capitalist exploitation is finally abolished, and the means of production are liberated to serve the needs of humanity, will be the day that planning can truly begin on a world scale to heal the wounds inflicted on our mother Earth.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This violates Saudi Arabia’s international obligations.”Other recent victims of the crackdown include Waleed Abu Al-Khair, the founder of the Monitor of Human Rights in Saudi Arabia (MHRSA). A Riyadh court sentenced him on 6 July to 15 years in jail on charges of “preparing, storing and transmitting information that undermines public order,” inciting rebellion”, “publishing false information with the aim of harming the state, contempt of court” “and creating an NGO without permission”.According to Gulf Centre for Human Rights, Khair has also been the victim of mistreatment since his arrest.Well-known writer Mukhlif Al-Shammari’s five-year jail term was upheld on second appeal on 3 July. His sentence also includes a ban on writing for newspapers or websites or appearing in the media, and a ten-year ban on travelling abroad.Fawzan Al-Harbi, one of the founders of the Arabian Civil and Political Rights Association (ACPRA), which monitors human rights violations in Saudi Arabia, was sentenced on 25 June to seven years in prison and a seven-year ban on foreign travel. The charges on which he was convicted included “preparing, storing and transmitting information that undermines public order” under cyber-crime law. Reporters Without Borders condemns the seven-year jail term that a Jeddah criminal court specializing in national security and terrorism passed on independent news photographer Jassim Mekki A’al Safar on 18 June. He was also sentenced to a seven-year ban on foreign travel after his release. Safar was accused of “posting photos and videos on YouTube that could discredit the kingdom,” “posting photos of prisoners in public places,” “creating a terrorist cell,” “chanting anti-government slogans at protests” and “meeting with foreign reporters.”He was one of a total of 11 activists who were given sentences ranging from four to 19 years in prison on 18 June on charges that including sedition and “demonstrating.” The sentencing ending a trial that began on 26 November. Three of the years that made up Safar’s seven-year term were imposed under the March 2007 cyber-crime law. RSF_en Organisation NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say According to the Arabic Network For Human Rights Information, Safar told the judge during the trial that he had been tortured and mistreated since his arrest, but the judge rejected his claims.
