Great Barbarians try vs the Boks – 2000

first_imgFriday Nov 30, 2007 Great Barbarians try vs the Boks – 2000 In preparation for the highly anticipated Barbarians vs Springboks clash on Saturday, we’ve dug up a fantastic try from 2000 which saw stars such as former Wallabies Richard Harry, Daniel Herbert, ex All Black number eight Ron Cribb, and enigmatic Argentinian leader Augustin Pichot playing some great rugby and throwing some classic passes.Harry got it going, showing good pace for a big guy, but Ron Cribb threw a vital slip pass to Pichot who put the foot down and flew away from the hapless Bok defenders. A classic try by the Barbarians, who are tradtionally famous for this type of crowd friendly flair.For this years clash between the two sides at Twickenham though, the Baa Baa’s unfortunately are missing a lot of mainline players from England, Ireland, and France due to club commitments. Therefore, the side is built up of a familiar bunch of Southern Hemisphere names that the South African’s will know well.The Boks on the other hand are also missing a few of their stars, with players like captain John Smit not being available and others being out because of injury.Both sides are looking strong though, and in all honesty this Barbarians side could and probably will give the World Champions a really tough challenge.With the likes of Joe Rokocoko, Mat Giteau, and Jason Robinson, you can expect to see some highly attractive rugby and some tremendous skill on show.Expect the Boks to play it tight at first though. Although Barbarian clashes are meant to be a festival of running rugby, the World Cup Winners still have a reputation to uphold, and they wont be playing loose rugby to start out with. Tight, hard, and physical, they’ll pick up the scraps and then hopefully later in the game throw the ball around and show the precision finishing that they displayed against Wales last week.It’s a mouth watering confrontation for the neutral and Bok supporter alike. With such talented players on both sides, lets hope the game lives up to expectations.

Chiefs thrash the Stormers in quarter final playoff in Cape Town

first_imgMonday Jul 25, 2016 Chiefs thrash the Stormers in quarter final playoff in Cape Town The Chiefs destroyed Schalk Burger’s Newlands farewell as they ran in eight tries for a punishing 60-21 win to book their place in the semi finals, where they will play the Hurricanes next weekend. The Stormers were outclassed by the more intense New Zealanders, who weren’t fazed by playing away from home.Burger, who will head to Saracens for his swansong, described the match as a horror movie.“Let us give credit to Chiefs for blowing us out of the water. It seemed like the harder we tried the worse it got. I feel sorry for our wonderful supporters — some harsh lessons were learnt out there tonight,” he said.Chiefs skipper Aaron Cruden meanwhile lauded his team’s effort away from home.“This was an exceptional team effort A really good performance after coming all the way from Dunedin to play here.“Those two tries that built an early lead set the tone and we never slackened. Our boys put their bodies on the line to prevent the Stormers scoring for much of the second half.“We have a young team who enjoy the game and play with passion. That was very evident here.“The boys prepared well and now we must do so again before facing the Hurricanes. All I can promise is that we will give our all.”The Chiefs will fly home to New Zealand to play the Hurricanes in the first semi final in Wellington, while the Lions will take on the Highlanders in Johannesburg.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.

Outside the funeral, conversations about racist brutality

first_imgAt the Michael Brown funeral.WW photo: John ParkerFerguson, Mo., Aug. 25 — Many thousands of people, the majority of them standing outside the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church, gathered here in solidarity today to comfort the family of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a Ferguson police officer on Aug. 9.Brown’s mother and father, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., were accompanied by notable public figures, including Spike Lee, Wesley Snipes, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton, Sen. Claire McCaskill and Rep. Maxine Waters. Sharpton delivered the eulogy.Most of the people present had not known Michael Brown, but those from the Ferguson area do know the atmosphere of raw terror produced by the police who are now engaged in an extreme version of military occupation against their community.While traveling to the funeral, a cab driver born in Nigeria told this reporter of the many instances of harassment and terror he has experienced. The driver, afraid to give his name for fear of repercussions from the cops, said, “I approached a stop sign and I stopped. A cop pulled up to me, and he was Black. He pulled me out of the car window when I asked him what I’d done and just started beating me.” The driver was then told to leave and threatened again.In Ferguson there are 53 cops, three of whom are Black. The majority white, racist police force in Ferguson undoubtedly puts much pressure on these Black cops to “prove” themselves. The cab driver added that Black people cannot even drive in the nearby town of Calverton Park without great risk of being stopped and beaten.The cab drivers themselves are also encouraged to follow racist codes when dealing with outlying areas of Ferguson. He said that when you take a job as a driver, you’re told not to pick up Black people.Outside the funeral, an older man who also didn’t want to be identified said he’d been beaten when he was a teenager by a cop who mistook him for someone else. “He took me out of the car, then broke three of my ribs with the butt of his shotgun, then pointed it at me and, after staring at me, realized I wasn’t who he was looking for.”Many youth at the funeral said they were providing security so that the cops wouldn’t be needed. They also spoke of many violent incidents they had experienced that were caused by the police.All these events occurred well before the horrible murder of Michael Brown. So the message of “peace and stay out of the streets,” to paraphrase remarks delivered by Rev. Sharpton and some of the clergy here, is not resonating with many youth. In their eyes the only reason the government, the country and the world are taking this latest example of police brutality so seriously is exactly because the youth refuse to remain quiet, docile and vulnerable.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Women’s hockey team threatens boycott over unequal pay

first_imgMarch 20 — As everyone knows, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, both sat and kneeled in protest during the playing of the national anthem during the 2016 National Football League season to bring attention to racist oppression, especially police brutality.This individual act of heroism helped to elevate the Black Lives Matter movement to an unprecedented level of visibility and solidarity among broader sectors of the U.S. population, reminiscent of the late, great Muhammad Ali, who took a stand against the Vietnam war 50 years ago.To this day, Kaepernick’s protest continues to have a social impact on other important issues exposing inequality in the U.S. This includes the ongoing struggle against pay inequity when it comes to female and male athletes.In a major development, members of the U.S. women’s hockey team announced on March 15 that they will be boycotting the upcoming world championship games scheduled March 31 through April 7 in Plymouth, Mich.This women’s team is currently ranked number one in the world. Since women’s hockey came on the world scene in 1998, the U.S. team has won seven gold medals, along with diverse medals in every Olympic game. According to ESPN.com, USA Hockey, sponsor of the women’s and men’s teams, reported a gross revenue of $42 million in 2014-15, and paid its executive staff compensation ranging from $440,209 in salary and bonuses for director Dave Ogrean to $250,000 to $300,000 for other senior officials. (March 16)How do these exorbitant salaries and bonuses compare to those of women players, whom fans turn out to see excel?“Out of a four-year cycle, USA Hockey pays for only six months out of an entire four years. They pay us $1,000 per month in those six months. So, for the other 42 months we don’t get paid at all by USA Hockey,” Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, a two-time Olympic silver medalist, told ESPN. “It is a full-time job, and to not get paid is a financial burden and stress on the players, obviously.”This amounts to a measly $6,000 per six months whenever the team trains in preparation for the Olympic games. During the rest of the three-and-a-half years of training, the United States Olympic Committee can supplement their salaries. But that is capped at $24,000 depending on the degree of “accomplishment” of certain players. In other words, the USOC has various tiers of wages, like many other corporations. Those players viewed as average or below average receive no more than $700 a month from the USOC.It should be noted that many USA Hockey male players are also members of professional hockey teams, making at least six-figure salaries, if not more.Besides the terrible pay, women players have complained to USA Hockey officials about goalies having to use their own antiquated college equipment; horrible, cramped, unsanitary living quarters resulting in spider bites; and strenuous travel that none of their male counterparts are asked to endure to get to competitions.Instead of coming to terms with the women’s demands, USA Hockey officials are threatening to replace the women’s team. This amounts to management saying it will call in scab labor.The women hockey players have also complained that, while more than $3.5 million per year has been publicly earmarked to support boys participating in the national hockey team development program, there is no equivalent program for girls.Is this just another example exposing that any amount of patriotism exhibited by U.S. athletes cannot make them immune to all the levels of institutionalized inequality, be that racism, sexism, homophobia or discrimination against those with disabilities?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Specifically, AB 102 would eliminate the 2027 sunset date for College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) partnerships, while AB 103 increase access to dual enrollment opportunities for students in juvenile court schools.“Dual enrollment increases the number of college graduates, reduces time and money spent for college, and helps close the achievement gap,” said Holden. “Making dual enrollment permanent means more school districts will be able to invest in creating these partnership agreements that benefit their students and prepare them for college.”Dual and concurrent enrollment provides high school students access to college-level coursework. In some cases, students earn both high school and college credit for the same course depending on approval from local school and community college governing boards. Assemblymember Holden first established the College and Career Access Pathways program in 2015 (AB 288) and has since passed numerous bills to increase and expand dual enrollment opportunities through these partnerships.According to an October 2018 Career Ladders study, students who participate in dual enrollment at a community college during high school are more likely to graduate and enter college and more likely to complete a certificate, degree, or transfer. A key finding was that students most underrepresented in community colleges often benefit the most.AB 103 would allow juvenile court schools, through the county offices of education, to participate in College and Career Access Pathways partnerships in the same way local school districts do. Students in juvenile court schools experience high rates of educational instability, and are likely to be behind in credits. As the quality of court school education varies widely, many students express that they feel disengaged from school, or that they are constantly repeating material that they have already covered. Increasing educational opportunities, like dual enrollment, for students in juvenile hall could provide a turning point that leads to academic success and future employment.“Despite the high aspirations of youth in the juvenile justice system for postsecondary educational attainment, the system fails to support access to college,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “AB 103 provides an opportunity for a uniquely vulnerable population to make academic progress and jump-start their college education.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Nageswara Rao, Krishna Murari and S. Ravindra Bhat disagreed with the Delhi High Court view that addition in income towards “future prospects” can only be given in case of death, and not for injury. It observed that that the Courts should not adopt a stereotypical or myopic approach, but instead, view the matter taking into account the realities of life, both in the assessment of the extent of disabilities, and compensation under various heads.The Apex Court considered the following issues in the appeal against High Court judgment: One, whether in cases of permanent disablement incurred as a result of a motor accident, the claimant can seek, apart from compensation for future loss of income, amounts for future prospects too; and two, the extent of disability.On the first question, the bench noted that the High Court was not correct in excluding the possibility of compensation for future prospects in accident cases involving serious injuries resulting in permanent disablement. It said:On the first question, the High Court no doubt, is technically correct in holding that Pranay Sethi involved assessment of compensation in a case where the victim died. However, it went wrong in saying that later, the three-judge bench decision in Jagdish was not binding, but rather that the subsequent decision in Anant to the extent that it did not award compensation for future prospects, was binding. This court is of the opinion that there was no justification for the High Court to have read the previous rulings of this court, to exclude the possibility of compensation for future prospects in accident cases involving serious injuries resulting in permanent disablement. Such a narrow reading of Pranay Sethi is illogical, because it denies altogether the possibility of the living victim progressing further in life in accident cases – and admits such possibility of future prospects, in case of the victim’s death. This court has emphasized time and again that “just compensation” should include all elements that would go to place the victim in as near a position as she or he was in, before the occurrence of the accident. Whilst no amount of money or other material compensation can erase the trauma, pain and suffering that a victim undergoes after a serious accident, (or replace the loss of a loved one), monetary compensation is the manner known to law, whereby society assures some measure of restitution to those who survive, and the victims who have to face their lives. Courts should not adopt a stereotypical or myopic approach In this case, the claimant, a 20-year-old data entry operator (who had studied up to 12th standard) had incurred permanent disability, i.e. loss of his right hand (which was amputated), which was assessed to be 89%. The tribunal and the High Court re-assessed the disability to be only 45%, on the assumption that the assessment for compensation was to be on a different basis, as the injury entailed loss of only one arm. Disagreeing with this approach, the bench observed:”This approach, in the opinion of this court, is completely mechanical and entirely ignores realities. Whilst it is true that assessment of injury of one limb or to one part may not entail permanent injury to the whole body, the inquiry which the court has to conduct is the resultant loss which the injury entails to the earning or income generating capacity of the claimant. Thus, loss of one leg to someone carrying on a vocation such as driving or something that entails walking or constant mobility, results in severe income generating impairment or its extinguishment altogether. Likewise, for one involved in a job like a carpenter or hairdresser, or machinist, and an experienced one at that, loss of an arm, (more so a functional arm) leads to near extinction of income generation. If the age of the victim is beyond, the scope of rehabilitation too diminishes. These individual factors are of crucial importance which are to be borne in mind while determining the extent of permanent disablement, for the purpose of assessment of loss of earning capacity. “”Courts should not adopt a stereotypical or myopic approach, but instead, view the matter taking into account the realities of life, both in the assessment of the extent of disabilities, and compensation under various heads. In the present case, the loss of an arm, in the opinion of the court, resulted in severe income earning impairment upon the appellant. As a typist/data entry operator, full functioning of his hands was essential to his livelihood. The extent of his permanent disablement was assessed at 89%; however, the High Court halved it to 45% on an entirely wrong application of some ‘proportionate’ principle, which was illogical and is unsupportable in law. What is to be seen, as emphasized by decision after decision, is the impact of the injury upon the income generating capacity of the victim. The loss of a limb (a leg or arm) and its severity on that account is to be judged in relation to the profession, vocation or business of the victim; there cannot be a blind arithmetic formula for ready application. On an overview of the principles outlined in the previous decisions, it is apparent that the income generating capacity of the appellant was undoubtedly severely affected. Maybe, it is not to the extent of 89%, given that he still has the use of one arm, is young and as yet, hopefully training (and rehabilitating) himself adequately for some other calling. Nevertheless, the assessment of disability cannot be 45%; it is assessed at 65% in the circumstances of this case.”Mental Trauma Also Needs To Be ConsideredPartly allowing the appeal, the bench enhanced the compensation to ₹19,65,600/-. While parting, the bench further observed:”It needs to be underlined that Courts should be mindful that a serious injury not only permanently imposes physical limitations and disabilities but too often inflicts deep mental and emotional scars upon the victim. The attendant trauma of the victim’s having to live in a world entirely different from the one she or he is born into, as an invalid, and with degrees of dependence on others, robbed of complete personal choice or autonomy, should forever be in the judge’s mind, whenever tasked to adjudge compensation claims. Severe limitations inflicted due to such injuries undermine the dignity (which is now recognized as an intrinsic component of the right to life under Article 21) of the individual, thus depriving the person of the essence of the right to a wholesome life which she or he had lived, hitherto. From the world of the able bodied, the victim is thrust into the world of the disabled, itself most discomfiting and unsettling. If courts nit-pick and award niggardly amounts oblivious of these circumstances, there is resultant affront to the injured victim.”Case name: PAPPU DEO YADAV vs. NARESH KUMAR Case no.: CIVIL APPEAL NO. 2567 OF 2020Coram: Justices L.
