Hooker Nathan Harris throws silky no look pass on opening day of Super Rugby

first_imgFriday Feb 15, 2019 Hooker Nathan Harris throws silky no look pass on opening day of Super Rugby As far as opening games of a tournament go, the Chiefs vs Highlanders match had everything. There was a comeback, a red card and tries aplenty. One try in particular by the Chiefs not only showed what the team are capable of this year but shows that there is no rust after the off-season.ADVERTISEMENTIf this try is anything to go by, the Chiefs are going to be threatening this season.The offload from second-row Michael Allardice was good, then the pass from Anton Lienert-Brown whilst being tackled to pick out Nathan Harris was better, then the perfectly weighted pop from the hooker to Etene Nanai-Seturo capped off some wonderful interplay between forwards and backs, in what was a silky finish for the first game of the season.The try helped the Chiefs extend their lead to 19-7 at half time, and many fans and players would have thought that they had their foot in the door of their first win of the season. However, a late comeback by the Highlanders stunned them, as they went down 30-27.Harris made another sublime pass later in the match flicking it out the back under pressure to set his winger free.The Highlanders played the last 15 minutes of the match with 14 players after Sio Tomkinson saw red for a no-arms tackle, so it would be tough for the Chiefs to see a lead like that slip in those circumstances.ADVERTISEMENTNonetheless, there is certainly no lack of skill in the Chiefs team, and they will definitely be a force this season.Full highlights from the matchADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

A 12-2 run with points scored by four different Horned Frogs gave TCU a 40-35 lead at the halftime break.The teams traded scores in the third quarter, withHeard hitting her fourth three after Carleton reached 22 for the game.  This intensity carried over into the fourth quarter, with the Horned Frogs fighting hard to complete the upset. Though TCU never led by more than eight, the Horned Frogs shot too well from the free throw line down the stretch for Iowa State to come back, 22-29 in the game.Amy Okonkwo poured in 17 points and grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds for TCU in the win. Jordan Moore added 10 points and five blocks.“I think it’s a really big win,” Okonkwo said. “It’s great to know that we won this game because we have so much more to give.”The Horned Frogs will return to the hardwood at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 in Morgantown, West Virginia.

The Observer’s Carole Cadwalladr wins Reporters Without Borders’ ‘L’esprit de RSF’ award

first_img February 11, 2021 Find out more November 8, 2018 – Updated on November 9, 2018 The Observer’s Carole Cadwalladr wins Reporters Without Borders’ ‘L’esprit de RSF’ award News March 23, 2021 Find out more United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Events Freedom of expression News February 12, 2021 Find out more Safety of journalists remains active concern in Northern Ireland as BBC Panorama team is threatened RSF_en Solidarity with Swedish media outlet Realtid ahead of UK defamation case hearing Reporters Without Borders (RSF) held its annual Press Freedom Awards in London for the first time ever on 8 November 2018.The three international awards for Courage, Impact, and Independence went to Swati Chaturvedi from India, Matthew Caruana Galizia from Malta, and Inday Espina-Varona from the Philippines.A special ‘L’esprit de RSF’ prize created for the UK media to mark London’s hosting of the prestigious Press Freedom Awards was awarded to The Observer’s Carole Cadwalladr for her investigations into subversion of democratic processes in the UK and US.The UK is ranked 40th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.London 08.11.18. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) honoured The Observer journalist Carole Cadwalladr at its 2018 Press Freedom Awards this evening.The prestigious annual awards ceremony, held in London for the first time ever this year, was presented by Lindsey Hilsum, Channel 4 News’ Chief International Correspondent, and biographer of war correspondent Marie Colvin, who was killed in Syria in 2012.Other noteworthy participants who spoke at the awards included BBC Chief International Correspondent Lyse Doucet, former RSF award winners Can Dundar and Zaina Erhaim, Chinese dissident activist Wu’er Kaixi, Fleet Street legend Eve Pollard, and media commentator Roy Greenslade. The ceremony highlighted the importance of press freedom and safety of journalists, especially in the wake of the killing of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi.A special ‘L’esprit de RSF’ Prize was given to The Observer’s Carole Cadwalladr. ‘L’esprit de RSF’ was created this year, to mark London’s first-ever hosting of the awards, to honour a UK journalist, media organisation, or NGO, that has demonstrated exceptional courage, achieved tremendous impact, or shown independence in the face of significant pressure, embodying the spirit of RSF in their work in the UK or on behalf of a UK media organisation or NGO abroad.An award-winning reporter for The Guardian and The Observer, Cadwalladr’s reporting on the manipulation and subversion of democratic processes in the US and UK resulted in the exposure of the role of Cambridge Analytica and its satellite AggregateIQ in the Trump and Brexit campaigns. Cadwalladr’s investigation found that the data analytics firm that worked with Trump’s election team in the US and the Leave campaign in the UK harvested millions of Facebook profiles of US voters, in one of the tech giant’s biggest-ever data breaches, and used them to build a powerful software programme to predict and influence choice at the ballot box. She continues to face pressure and harassment in backlash for her reporting.Rebecca Vincent, RSF UK Bureau Director, said: “The jury overwhelmingly voted for Carole Cadwalladr, who truly represents the spirit of RSF in the UK. Her reporting on interference in the Brexit campaign here in the UK and the Trump campaign in the US has underscored the vital importance of our democratic institutions, and the need to protect them – including the media itself. The severe backlash she continues to face is a testament to the impact of her reporting, and we are proud to honour her with this special new award.” Established in 1992, previous winners of RSF’s Press Freedom Awards include the renowned late Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, imprisoned Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, courageous Syrian journalist Zaina Erhaim, and embattled Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet.This year’s awards were selected by a high-profile international jury, including notable figures such as Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi and Chinese activist Wu’er Kaixi – both RSF emeritus board members – as well as RSF President Pierre Haski. RSF’s UK advisory board – including Fleet Street legend Eve Pollard, former Director of BBC News James Harding, Channel 4 News Anchor Jon Snow, and media commentator Roy Greenslade – selected the winner of the special ‘L’esprit de RSF’ prize.“Every year I am astounded by the quality and passion of journalists around the world who put their safety at risk in pursuit of the truth, and it is an honour to be able to highlight the work of these courageous individuals. We hope that this recognition will offer them vital support and protection as they carry on their important work in the face of growing pressure against independent media in their home countries,” said RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire.This year’s awards were made possible thanks to the generous support of TV5MONDE – a long-standing partner of RSF’s Press Freedom Awards – along with 4 New Square Solicitors, the European Publishers Council, and Heineken. RSF is grateful for these kind contributions. to go further Organisation News OTHER RSF 2018 PRESS FREEDOM AWARD WINNERSThe Prize for Courage: Swati Chaturvedi, IndiaThe Prize for Courage is awarded to journalists, media or NGOs who demonstrate courage in the practice, defence or promotion of journalism in a hostile environment and despite threats to their freedom or safety.A freelance reporter for print and broadcast media, Swati Chaturvedi has been the target of vicious online harassment campaigns, like many other outspoken journalists in India. She responded by using journalistic weapons, investigating the “IT cell” within the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Hindu nationalist party led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which is notorious for keeping an army of angry trolls. The result was a book entitled I am a Troll: Inside the Secret World of the BJP’s Digital Army. In retaliation for her reporting, Swati Chaturvedi is now even more exposed to calls for revenge by social media trolls.The Prize for Impact: Matthew Caruana Galizia, MaltaThe Prize for Impact is awarded to journalists, media or NGOs whose work has led to concrete improvement in journalistic freedom, independence and pluralism, or to an increase in awareness of these matters.A Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and software engineer, Matthew Caruana Galizia worked at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) for five years, where he co-founded its Data and Research Unit. He left the ICIJ in 2018 to focus on the case of his mother, Daphne Caruana Galizia, herself an investigative journalist who was assassinated by a car bomb near her home in Malta in October 2017. He has worked tirelessly to obtain justice for his mother’s murder and for the crimes she exposed, to galvanise the international community, and to hold the Maltese authorities to account.The Prize for Independence: Inday Espina-Varona, Philippines The Prize for Independence is awarded to journalists, media or NGOs for resisting pressure (including financial, political, economic or religious pressure) or because of the values and rules that enable them to resist.A veteran journalist who is very active on social networks, Inday Espina-Varona is now a contributing editor at the Philippine broadcast network ABS-CBN, where she formerly ran its citizen journalism website Bayan Mo i-Patrol Mo (BMPM). Over the years, she has reported extensively on issues that are sensitive in the Philippines, such as child prostitution, violence against women, LGBT issues and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front on the island of Mindanao. In June 2018, Espina-Varona took over as the head of #BabaeAko (“Me, a woman” in Tagalog), a social media campaign that informs and mobilises the public on women’s rights issues in response to Duterte’s many misogynistic comments and attacks on women.Ends.Notes for editors:The RSF 2018 Press Freedom Awards took place on 8 November at the Getty Images Gallery in London.Prizes were awarded to journalists from around the world for Courage (Swati Chaturvedi, India), Impact (Matthew Caruana Galizia, Malta), and Independence (Inday Espina-Varona, the Philippines).

At the time, he was more engaged in building his business than in focusing on charitable activities. Although he did express some interest in supporting education both at the high school and college level, he never formulated any plan or gave any specific directions with regard to the priorities of his Foundation.After Fletcher Jones died in a plane crash in 1972, the original Trustees of the Foundation decided that support of the private colleges and universities in California should be their primary emphasis. That policy has been reaffirmed by subsequent Trustees and continues to this day.The Fletcher Jones Foundation is governed by a distinguished eleven member Board of Trustees drawn from the ranks of business, law, finance, banking, education and government. The Foundation is administered by a two-person staff, based at its office in Pasadena, located at 117 E.

Climate change slows weakening of North Atlantic hurricanes once they make landfall

first_imgWoodysPhotos/iStockBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Climate change is slowing the weakening of hurricanes after they make landfall from the North Atlantic, which could result in more destruction for areas further inland, according to a new study.Hurricane storm systems, which derive their power from the moisture in open seas, typically “decay rapidly” once hitting land, and the damage is largely confined to coastal areas, according to the study, published in Nature on Wednesday.When a hurricane first makes landfall, the center of the storm is over land, but about half of the system is still over the ocean, which allows the moisture supply to persist until the storm is completely over land, typically about 3.5 hours later.However, the study’s findings suggest that warmer seas are allowing storm systems to hold more moisture, even after they make landfall, slowing the rate at which they dissipate.“The maximum intensity the hurricane can achieve over its lifestyle” is expected to increase as the world warms and storm systems collect more moisture, according to the scientists.The researchers analyzed data from hurricanes that made landfall in the North Atlantic from 1967 to 2018 and found the extent of hurricane decay has declined in correlation with a rise in sea temperatures.According to the data, storms that made landfall in 1960 likely would decay by 75% within a day of hitting land, while hurricanes today only weaken by about 50% within a day of landfall.The timescale of decay after hitting land has also nearly doubled over the past half century, from 17 hours to 33 hours.More inland areas typically less prepared for such storms could find themselves at greater risk, the authors noted.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Kobe Bryant honored at memorial by his Philadelphia-area high school

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock(PHILADELPHIA) — Kobe Bryant was honored Saturday at his former high school in a packed gymnasium, nearly a week after his shocking death.Around 1,600 people, including Bryant’s cousin and former high school teammates, showed up for the tribute at Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, in the Kobe Bryant Gymnasium.Kevin Grugan, one of the NBA legend’s high school teammates, who is now the assistant coach for the school’s boys basketball team, thanked those who have shown an “outpouring of love and support.”Grugan also announced that Bryant’s legacy would be commemorated in the gym, with his high-school jersey framed on a wall.“We will welcome Kobe home in a small way,” Grugan said. “As the jersey that belongs here is finally here.”A video montage of Bryant’s life and career was also played, including a final image of him smiling court-side with his arm wrapped around his 13-year-old daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant. The two were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26.The other victims were identified as college baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri Altobelli, their daughter Alyssa Altobelli, basketball coach Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester, her daughter Payton Chester and pilot Ara Zobayan.The tribute took place between the varsity girls and varsity boys basketball games.Bryant graduated from Lower Merion, located in the suburbs of Philadelphia, in 1996 and went straight to the NBA.Gregg Downer, who was Bryant’s coach throughout high school, was in attendance at the ceremony but did not publicly speak. Bryant’s cousin, John Cox, who plays French professional basketball, also attended the ceremony but did not publicly speak.“Aces Nation has lost its heartbeat,” Downer said in an earlier statement, referring to the school’s nickname for its basketball team.The high school memorial is among the countless that have poured in since his death. On Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers returned to the court for their first game since the tragedy. Bryant spent his entire 20-year career with the Lakers.“Tonight we celebrate the kid that came here at 18, retired at 38 and became probably the best dad we’ve seen over the last three years,” James said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Master Chief Petty Officer of US Navy Visits NAS Jacksonville, Naval Base GTMO

first_imgMaster Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON)(AW/NAC) Mike D. Stevens completed a three-day trip to Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville and Naval Base Guantanamo Bay Cuba (GTMO) February 15.MCPON participated in CPO 365 events, toured base facilities, took the opportunity to discuss the focus areas of his “Zeroing in on Excellence” initiative, and answered questions about new uniforms, budget cuts, Family Readiness Group, the Performance to Serve program, and deployments during base-wide all hands calls.CPO 365, a year-long development and training for First Class Petty Officers, was first introduced in 2010 under former MCPON Rick West. It includes two phases, the first of which begins in September each year. Under MCPON Steven’s revised program, detailed in his 2012-2013 CPO 365 Guidance, all First Class Petty Officers will participate through the duration of Phase One, whether they are board-eligible or not.“CPO 365 is so important for the future development of our First Class Petty Officers. “I believe that if you’re going to lead the future force of our Navy that you must be armed with the best opportunities to succeed,” said Stevens.CPO 365 is designed to develop leaders through a combination of mentorship, practical experience and training.“I view this training as our most creative avenue to productively engage Chiefs with petty officers and junior officers, and to form enduring relationships characterized by mutual respect,” said Stevens.MCPON talked about the importance of effective leadership during a CPO 365 training session in GTMO.“As you go through CPO 365, you will become a more effective leader. If everything we do starts and stops with leadership, then every Sailor will benefit from a more effective leader.”He also discussed the value of the Navy’s leading petty officers.“We must have exceptional leading petty officers, because you are one of the critical components to the engine that makes the Navy run,” said Stevens.Many Sailors showed concern about the looming fiscal environment. MCPON recognized the challenges the Navy is currently facing, but asked that Sailors focus on controlling what we own.“It is easy to become distracted by things that are beyond our control,” said Stevens. He also reminded Sailors of the things they do own and control; such as technical training, administrative production, and the execution of orders. “We also have the ability to control much of our own lives by becoming and remaining physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually sound.”Fleet engagements are intended to provide senior leadership with a frontline assessment of Sailors and what they are doing in the Fleet.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 17, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Jacksonville View post tag: Petty View post tag: Base View post tag: Defense Master Chief Petty Officer of US Navy Visits NAS Jacksonville, Naval Base GTMO View post tag: Defence View post tag: Officer View post tag: Master View post tag: UScenter_img February 17, 2013 View post tag: NAS Authorities View post tag: GTMO Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today Master Chief Petty Officer of US Navy Visits NAS Jacksonville, Naval Base GTMO View post tag: Navy View post tag: chief View post tag: Navallast_img read more
