Sona Taumalolo and Yoann Maestri red carded for France vs Tonga fight

first_imgSunday Nov 17, 2013 Sona Taumalolo and Yoann Maestri red carded for France vs Tonga fight France and Tonga each had a player red carded following a punch-up at the beginning of the second half of what was an ill-tempered game in Le Havre. France came out 38-18 victors, avenging the 19-14 defeat to Tonga in the 2011 Rugby World Cup. France scored four tries to two and had the boot of Morgan Parra to slot two conversions and four penalties. Despite the comfortable win, France will need to go up a notch next weekend when they face the Springboks. Captain Thierry Dusautoir was satisfied with the result however.“It’s pleasing. We’ve erased what happened at the World Cup and we can move on to something else,” he said. “We’re very happy but the black mark was losing Yoann (Maestri red card).”Shortly before halftime Taniela Moa was yellow carded for elbowing hooker Dimitri Szarzewski, and France scored from the resultant scrum. They went into the break with a 21-6 lead.Yoann Maestri and Sona Taumalolo then got in a tangle from the second half restart as a bit of contact led to punches being thrown, and a number of players joining in.Referee Glen Jackson, upon referral with his touch judges and the TMO’s TV replay, felt that two red cards was the fairest way of dealing with it. Maestri was clearly dejected, and probably felt pretty hard done by as he appeared to take the first punch on the chin before retaliating.We’ll get highlights from the match, and the other big ones this weekend, archived soon too.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Bill would criminalize protests, turn journalists into police informers

It also contains disastrous provisions for journalists covering protests. Signed by President Sebastián Piñera, interior minister Ricardo Hinzpeter and justice minister Teodoro Ribera, and submitted to congress on 1 October, the bill alludes to the ongoing protests when it says its aim is to “perfect and reinforce the regulations that enable an effective maintenance of public order.”The bill, a copy of which has been obtained by Reporters Without Borders, reaffirms the right to demonstrate peacefully but lumps “public order disturbance,” “paralysis” and “disorder” together with “violence.” By their nature, demonstrations tend to generate disorder and paralysis but do not necessarily lead to violence.The same confusion is seen in the bill’s main innovation, which is a sentence of between 18 months and three years in prison for any person found guilty of:- invading, occupying or ransacking rooms or offices of commercial, industrial, religious or other establishments- preventing or disrupting the free flow of individuals and vehicles on bridges, streets, roads and other similar installations used by the public.“It is hard not to see the first of these two sets of offences as a direct allusion to the (peaceful) student occupations of Chilevisión, the TV station that Piñera owned before he became president,” Reporters Without Borders said. “In the absence of any precision, does this mean that anyone sitting in a corridor or a studio of a news organization could be sentenced to three years in prison?“As regards the second set of offences, it is hard to imagine demonstrators staging a march anywhere other than a street, road or bridge. These provisions would be laughable if they did not threaten the right to demonstrate, one of the pillars of freedom of expression.”Reporters Without Borders accepts the principle of penalizing “attacks on the authority of the security forces,” which would subject to the same sanction (18 months to three years in prison) under this bill. But it condemns the lack of any sanctions for indiscriminate violence against protesters by the police, a frequent occurrence at this year’s student protests.Such violence has also been seen at demonstrations by environmentalist groups and the Mapuche indigenous community against the HydroAysén hydro-electric project.Media informers?Another alarming aspect of the bill is “a new power for the law enforcement and security forces, under which they can request the voluntary transmission of recordings, film or other electronic media material that may serve to substantiate the existence of crimes or participation in crimes, without a prior order from the state prosecutor.” The bill adds that this power would be used “in circumstances in which crimes against public order are committed and in which the frequent presence of mass media facilitates the existence of evidence substantiating these crimes.”“In other words, carabineros and police officers would be able to request and use media material to identify presumed offenders whenever they wanted, violating the rules about judicial controls in the gathering of evidence and violating the confidentiality of journalists’ information,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Journalists are neither police auxiliaries nor police informers. This clause wants to turn them into informers. The bill must be withdrawn.” Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world RSF_en Organisation ChileAmericas News to go further News Receive email alertslast_img read more

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Tagged with: housing debt Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Only about 11% of Americans have no consumer debt, which encompasses credit card debt and medical bills, according to a survey from Discover. This does not factor in mortgage debt or auto loan debt. Another 10% have less than $1,000. While mortgage debt specifically is not counted as “consumer debt,” about 14% of survey respondents said buying a home, leasing a home, or repairing their home was their No. 1 reason for acquiring consumer debt. Nearly 50% of Americans carry between $1,000 and $20,000 in consumer debt. When asked what was the No. 1 reason for acquiring debt, medical expenses took the lead with 23.5% of survey respondents citing this as their top reason. Student loans were the next highest culprit with 15.3% of respondents saying this was the No. 1 reason for their debt. While a majority of Americans carry debt, a large percentage of them report feeling burdened by their debt, according to a recent article in MReport. About 60% of Americans feel burdened by their debt, but only 12.4% said their mortgage debt was their biggest burden, according to a survey from LendingTree. Instead of worrying about mortgage debt, which consumers view as contributing to their financial future, consumers tended to worry about credit card debt. That’s despite the fact that mortgage debt tends to make up the largest percentage of debt for Americans. This concern may be founded. Credit card delinquencies “have steadily risen since 2016, notably among younger borrowers,” said Wilbert Van Der Klaauw, SVP of the New York Fed earlier this month with the release of the New York Fed’s quarterly Household Debt and Credit Report. Almost 14% of survey respondents told Discover they believe they will be debt-free in less than one year, and the majority—nearly 60%—believe they will be out of debt in at most five years. The New York Fed reported that household debt has been on the rise for 27 consecutive quarters, rising to $14.15 trillion in Q4 2019. However, about 17% of people feel their debt is seemingly hopeless, telling Discover they don’t think they’ll ever get out of debt. Mortgage originations rose 42% in Q4 2019, reaching $752 billion, which the New York Fed reported as the highest mortgage loan origination volume reported since Q4 2005.  Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: A Look Back at Real Estate Performance Next: Top Markets for REO ‘Fix-and-Flip’ Buyerslast_img read more

The petitioner highlights the dire straits that these Indians have been left in, destitute and without any help,”That the husband of the petitioner along with 860 Indian fishermen belonging to the States of Tamil Nadu, Kerela & Gujarat are stranded in Iran in temporary shed & anchored boats in the coast of Bandar-e Moqam, a coastal village and Lavan Island both in Hormozgan Province of Iran. There is a complete lockdown and they are left to fend for themselves in an unknown foreign terrain with no help whatsoever coming from the Embassy or from the Iran Government”The petitioner urges the court’s intervention in bringing back the stranded fishermen to India and states that they have taken all requisite precautions so as to steer clear of the deadly virus. However, even if they to be found infected, the petitioner urges that they still be brought back to India and be kept in necessary quarantine conditions. Accordingly, the petitioner states that not doing so is the purely antithetical to Article 21 of the Constitution.”…this measure of testing and then repatriation on the condition of negative result and of allowing the citizens of India to perish in a foreign country out of starvation and dehydration much less then the infected, to say the least is inhuman and completely contrary to Article 21.” – the petition says.In light of this, the petitioner, while calling out the Government for not bringing back infected Indian Citizens, draws a corollary between the Nazi Germany’s stand of extremism.”….’I will take you back if you are not infected’ could be a British or Nazi German way of things and it is definitely not India way of things that too living with a constitution in hand. Moreover, it is unacceptable in any civilised society” – avers the petitioner.The petition further elucidates callousness of the Government of India and states that even though an order was passed by the top court on April 1, 2020 (In the matter of Mustafa MH V. Union Of India) to bring back those citizens who are tested negative for Coronavirus, no test or visit has been undertaken by the Ministry of External Affairs as of today. Apropos this, it has been prayed by the petitioner that the Court immediately direct the Government to send “a team of at least 25 medicos herein to immediately test and treat the 860 stranded fishemen from the coasts and boats stationed in the shored of Bandar- e Moqamand…” and thereby send a flight to Lavan airport (or any other airport feasible to rescue the 860 fishermen).Meanwhile, the petitioner prays, all requisite facilities for food, water and medical supplies must be provided the the stranded fishermen lot.The petitioner has also annexed a document which lays down Member of Parliament H. Vasanthakumar’s letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, dated March 12, 2020 seeking evacuation of the stranded fishermen in Iran.On April 1, 2020, the Supreme Court had observed that the situation of 250 stranded Indian citizens at Qom, Iran, who had been tested positive for Coronavirus shall be closely monitored by the Indian Embassy & a decision to repatriate could not be taken currently.The petition has been filed by Advocate K. Paari Vedhan on behalf of Mrs. Santha Muthulingam.[Read Petition]Next Storylast_img read more
