first_imgWednesday Aug 23, 2006 Rupeni Caucaunibuca try against France Anyone who’s ever seen Rupeni Caucaunibuca play will know that on form, and when fit, he’s probably the most explosive winger we’ve seen in a long time.He was with Auckland a cpl of years back in the Super 12. Since then, he’s wandered around clubs in France and has been a regular no shower at important matches.He’s done it once again. The Fijian wingers future at the club is in doubt, with club officials seeking clarification regarding his commitment to the club.Anyone who has more clips of this guy plz let me know. Update: As Jeff has so kindly & politely pointed out in the comments section, Caucaunibuca has been playing in France for Agen and doing pretty well apparently. Still would love to see him in the Super 14.

Three months of quiet repression, arrests, censorship and propaganda

first_img RSF_en May 26, 2021 Find out more News May 31, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Myanmar Organisation MyanmarAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association deplore the climate of fear imposed by the militarygovernment for the past three months. Despite international condemnation, the police and army continue to huntfor those who photographed and filmed the crackdown on peaceful demonstrations. At least nine have had to fleethe country for fear of being arrested. The military government has constantly hounded Burma’s journalists during the three months that have gone by since 27 September, the day that Japanese video reporter Kenji Nagai was murdered by a soldier in Rangoon, Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association said today.The police and army continue to hunt for journalists and activists who photographed and filmed the crackdown on the pro-democracy demonstrations. At least nine have had to flee to Thailand. The privately-owned media have resumed publishing but the Censorship Board has stepped up its control.“The impression that things are back to normal is false,” the two organisations said. “The security services are still looking for the underground journalists who let the world know about the violence against monks and pro-democracy activists. We call for an end to the intimidation of the press and for the release of the six journalists currently held. The international community must find a way to get UN special rapporteur Sergio Pinheiro’s recommendations implemented.”The UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution on Burma on 14 December that calls on the government to guarantee the freedom of the independent media. A Reporters Without Borders addressed the council, calling for the release of Burma’s journalists and an end to the censorship.Ko Aung Gyi, the former editor of the sports magazine 90 Minutes, is one of the latest journalists to be detained. It is not known why he was arrested in Rangoon. Two other former journalists, Ko Win Maw and Ko Aung Aung, have also been arrested without being charged. At least 15 other journalists have been arrested since September and then released. The six currently in prison include Win Tin, a prominent journalist held since July 1989.People who have been arrested and then released say the police ask everyone for the names of the “cameramen,” meaning the journalists who work clandestinely for foreign news media or Democratic Voice of Burma, an exile radio and TV station based in Oslo. Many photographers and cameramen who contributed to exile media have stopped working altogether for fear of being identified and some have even thrown away their equipment.The Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA), a pro-government militia, continues to be hostile towards journalists. The Myanmar Nation photographer Aung Khine Nyunt was beaten by thugs believed to be USDA members while taking photos of a march on 21 October. In all, about ten journalists were beaten or roughed up during the demonstrations.At least nine Burmese journalists have fled the country because of the repression, and have sought refuge in Thailand. Most of them left the capital during the first wave of arrests at the end of September.The Censorship Board has had no qualms about asserting itself. The weekly News Watch was banned for a week in mid-November after proposing the publication of photos that displeased the military. The military censors have even forced editors to resign. In early December, the authorities punished the magazine Action for failing to withdraw articles censored by the government. A censorship official publicly criticised Action for not being “constructive.” The newspaper Middle Line also got into trouble. It was suspended after its editor, Oo Swe, complained that some media were getting favourable treatment from the censors, according to the exile magazine and website Irrawaddy.To prevent Burmese from seeing reports and pictures of the crackdown in September, the military government has controlled the sale of foreign publications very strictly since mid-October. The magazines Time and Newsweek and Thai newspapers have not been seen in news stands for the past few weeks. The Internet has been restored but surveillance has been stepped up in Internet cafés. For fear of reprisals, many Internet café owners have removed the programmes from their computers that allowed users to circumvent the government’s filters.Around 10 journalists suspected of sympathising with the pro-democracy protests have been banned from being published or interviewed. They include sports reporter Zaw Thet Htwe, cartoonist Au Pi Kyee and writer Pe Myint.The censorship is not limited to political topics. The military government, for example, banned coverage of a new outbreak of bird flu on 20 October, although the outbreak was announced by the government agency responsible for dealing with it.Anyone who criticises the government can be the target of repression. This is why the authorities banned a video of a show by the comic troupe “Say Young Sone.” According to Democratic Voice of Burma, which decided to televise it, the DVD is selling very well on the streets of Rangoon. Similarly, a spokesman for the Zantila Rama monastery was sentenced to two years in prison in December for complaining that military personnel stole money during a search. Democratic Voice of Burma said he was found guilty of defamation. A Burmese rapper was arrested in November for paying tribute to the monks at a concert. And Irrawaddy reported in early November that Tin Yu, a resident of a Rangoon suburb, was arrested for “talking to foreign media.”The government media continue to pump out their propaganda, putting all of the activities of the military government’s leaders on the front page. The government’s TV stations have on several occasions vilified the reporting of the foreign media, such as the BBC, RFA and VOA, accusing them of trying to “destabilise” Burma. The government media have been ordered to praise the return to normality and the country’s economic progress. At the end of November, the USDA militia announced the launch of a new daily newspaper to reinforce the public’s support for the regime.Finally, many Rangoon-based journalists have criticised Myat Khaine, the editor of the weekly Snap Shot, for voluntarily giving the information ministry photos of protesters. to go further Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum MyanmarAsia – Pacific News US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture Help by sharing this information May 12, 2021 Find out more December 26, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three months of quiet repression, arrests, censorship and propaganda Receive email alertslast_img read more

Brundidge Rotarians talk tornadoes, tires

first_img Email the author Print Article Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day You Might Like Alabama lawmakers vote no 7-2 The U.S. Representative for Alabama’s Second Congressional District, including Pike County, did not vote in favor of a last-minute tax… read more Brundidge Rotarians talk tornadoes, tires Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Lawler said the club has money in its Christmas fund that could be donated to the victims’ fund, with the Pike County Branch of the American Red Cross as the case management lead.“We could also look to see if the District has funding available for disasters and, if so, the possibility of a matching grant,” Lawler said. “Or the club could take a family as a project.”The Club will consider its options in providing assistance to the victims. The Rotarians recognized Tonya Carter and The Wagon Wheel Restaurant on the one-year anniversary of Club’s meeting at The Wagon Wheel.Rotarian Lamar Steed, owner of Steed Tire Service in Brundidge, was the program host and talked tires with the club members.Steed said the tire business has “moved fast,” especially in the last five to 10 years with technology playing a huge role in the motor vehicle business.“Gas mileage comes from the tires,” Steed said. “So, it’s important to keep the air pressure at the recommended level. The air pressure in your tires could drop up to four pounds in cold weather and could rise that much in hot weather.” By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell Skip Steed said keeping a check on the air pressure is worth the trouble.“When the air pressure drop so does the mileage,” he said. “Not having the recommended level of air pressure puts drag on the car and the gas mileage goes down.”Steed said there are small computers inside tires that alert motorists when the air pressure is not at the recommended level.“Some of the newer tires have green valve caps,” he said. “That indicates that there’s nitrogen in the tire that helps hold the air pressure at 32 pounds. Keeping the air pressure level means better gas mileage so it is worth it to keep it checked.”Steed said a recent change that increases gas mileage is the elimination of the spare tire.“That takes off about 50 pounds and the lighter the car, the better the gas mileage,” he said. “When most people have a flat, they don’t usually change it themselves. They call for help. So, the spare tire is not as important as it used to be.”Air tanks are replacing the spare tire in some vehicles and can be used to inflate the tire long enough to get to a service station, Steed said.The life expectancy of tires in continually increasing. Steed said some tires have an expectancy of 80,000 to 120,000 miles.That being so, Steed said it would seem that tire dealerships would have a difficult time surviving.“But, where we used to have one-car families, the average family now has three cars,” Steed said. “Even though tires are lasting a lot longer, we’ve got a lot more cars on the road. And, that’s good if you’re in the tire business.” The Brundidge Rotary Club discussed ways the club could assist the victims of the two tornadoes that hit Pike County on Christmas Day at its Wednesday meeting.Michael Lawler, immediate past president, told the Rotarians that 66 structures were damaged by the tornadoes and, as of Wednesday, only 10 of those structures are livable.“Twelve homes were totally destroyed and 27 of the structures were uninsured,” Lawler said. “It’s unknown how many of the other structures were under insured. When you have damage like this, it’s likely that many of them were under insured.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Latest Stories Published 11:00 pm Wednesday, January 2, 2013 Book Nook to reopen Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Hospital trusts failing to impose latex policy

first_img Previous Article Next Article A yet to be published survey will reveal that a third of English and Welshtrusts do not have a latex policy, which is a disgrace, according to the vicechair of the latex allergy support group. In her address – Latex and staff health, managing safely – Lesley Fudge, anindependent nurse consultant, said these trusts have no accurate figures forthe number of staff who are diagnosed or self-diagnosed with natural rubberlatex (NRL) allergy (type I) or chemical allergy (type IV). She also told delegates that despite a growing number of people in the UKwith asthma, there is no proper allergy service available – something which isbadly needed. For OHNs working outside the health service, she said they should rememberthat it is not just healthcare workers who are exposed to NRL, but many otherprofessions as well, including the police, hairdressers and firemen. Fudge explained the alternatives to NRL, and the ways in which OH servicescan help and advise clients concerned that they may have, or may be developing,a problem. She also warned against penalising people for developing an allergy, byredeploying or even ruling them unfit for work in pre-employment healthchecks,especially as latex is not yet classified as a disability. She said that OH may need to help re-educate staff to “stop wearing thedamn things” for every task but instead encourage healthy hand care. www.hse.gov.uk/latex Comments are closed.
