From wings to Wasps, Paul Williams casts his eye over rugby’s recent goings-on Dive time: Gloucester’s Louis Rees-Zammit scores against Worcester (Getty Images) Carr ride: Wasps celebrate as Nizaam Carr scores the winning try at Bristol (Getty Images)That was until their win over Bristol, in Bristol. It was a fantastic fixture and one of the games of the month. With Malakai Fekitoa rediscovering early career form and shredding the line like the 50-cap All Black he could have been, Wasps cut the Bears’ midfield to pieces – 100m carried, with three clean breaks and six defenders beaten are big numbers for a centre.Add to that Nizaam Carr’s stunning try, in which the usually immaculate Charles Piutau undid his previous defensive efforts, and Wasps delivered a victory that could be the difference between playing in the Premiership or the Championship next season.Is the Top 14 losing its sheen for Welsh players?The festive period saw confirmation that Rhys Webb will return to the Ospreys – a Christmas present that their supporters dearly needed. It is a significant move for Welsh rugby. Not only does it see one of Wales’ best players return to regional rugby, but it marks the reversing of a trend of Welsh players going to France’s Top 14.In truth, Webb has had a mixed time in Toulon. Injury, and Baptiste Serin, meant that Webb hasn’t had it all his own way, but he has become favourite of Toulon supporters.Coming home: Rhys Webb will leave Toulon for Ospreys at the end of the season (Getty Images)Webb isn’t alone in finding mixed fortunes in France; in fact, he is one of the positive examples. Other than Lee Byrne, Stephen Jones and Gareth Thomas, almost everyone else struggled to adapt in one way or another – even players as good as Gethin Jenkins, Jamie Roberts and Dan Lydiate would consider their trip to France as a ‘learning experience’.Perhaps the final nail in the coffin for Welsh players in France is the lack of Top 14 television coverage in the UK now. Thus, players who move to France become invisible to the Welsh public and selectors very quickly. Plenty of players will still choose to leave Wales, but the Top 14 is no longer the top destination.Exeter Chiefs grow in confidenceExeter Chiefs are a well-run club. Arguably the best in the world game. It has allowed them to grow organically from something local, to something global.With a recruitment policy that only acquires players with a robust work ethic, they’ve built a squad and culture that is the envy of most and places them as many supporters’ second favourite team. Yet for all their positives, they have often been overshadowed by the glitz of the London clubs.However, as we saw in December, that is changing as Exeter grow in confidence on and off the field. Their performance against Saracens over the festive period was massive and straight from page one of the Exeter playbook – tackle and carry until you puke. Rugby World’s February 2020 issue is themed around the future of rugby and comes with a free Six Nations magazine – out now. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The rise of Louis Rees-Zammit‘Damn it, Zammit’ may not be the actual words used by the opposition’s back three, supporters and coaching staff, but they echo the sentiment expressed so far.The impact that Louis Rees-Zammit has had on the Gallagher Premiership would have been massive even if he was a 27-year-old, world conquering Fijian; to do it as an 18-year-old on a development contract is ludicrous. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS HOW?! Exeter Chiefs work wonders holding this up! A HUGE moment! For the first time in two years, Saracens are pointless at half-time… pic.twitter.com/TdMQ2kOoVc— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) December 29, 2019The fixture was of course about more than just rugby. There was a back-room element to this game that spilt onto the pitch and sent us flying back to 1990s rugby, where festive derbies often saw players being hurled into the advertising hoardings.Rob Baxter’s post-match comments were as aggressive as his teams defensive-line and were a welcome sign for those who have stood fast on their criticism of salary cap breaches. Add to that the news that Jonny Gray may soon be joining them, a player who epitomises the Exeter way, and Chiefs are looking like Premiership leaders both on and off the field. With the bonus point wrapped up in the first half, @racing92 took their foot off the gas in the second 40 and @ospreys fought back But it wasn’t enough, and the French side took all points #HeinekenChampionsCup highlights pic.twitter.com/tsXoFqIXwi— Heineken Champions Cup (@ChampionsCup) December 14, 2019Chasing a four-try BP from the kick-off could have a big impact on not only tactics but selection. Why pick a defensively-focused back three when you can select finishers? All of a sudden, the defensively weak but offensively strong outside-half becomes the starting ten and the box-kicking nine is no longer the star of the show.Rugby changes quickly and we could well see this trend develop. Worth keeping an eye on.Wasps win bigWith Wasps looking like an insect that has somehow survived through to early winter, they needed a win. They looked set for the type of post-Christmas run-in that directors of rugby dread – the type that can get a bit ‘sacky’. Rees lightning @LouisReesZammit with the hat-trick try This lad is some player! pic.twitter.com/Rb54VLCCd8— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) December 28, 2019With enough gas for Gloucester to consider mining him as an additional income stream, he has what all head coaches require from a wing – raw pace. Whilst the role of a modern wing has become far more kick-chase/defence-based in recent years, speed remains the primary function of a wing.Some may say that we’ve seen this all before in the Premiership. Players like Christian Wade had the legs, but maybe not the shoulders to succeed at the very top level, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with the Gloucester wing. He seems comfortable defensively and his positioning is promising for such a young player.Social media has been awash with English pundits and supporters trying to claim Rees-Zammit as their own. But as he has publicly declared, he is Welsh. Over to you, Mr Pivac.A new approach to away games in EuropeAway wins in Europe, especially the Champions Cup, are rare. They always have been. The reality is that a bonus point (BP) is the goal from the outset. But with rugby becoming ever more professional, and ruthless, we could see a new approach to away games in Europe.As we saw in December, some teams, the Ospreys being one, managed to get a four-try BP in a largely one-sided game. It begs the question, is there any point in approaching away games defensively, when outright attack from all areas can secure you four tries?

Cantor responded that separating the Farm Bill and the nutrition bill was not about political expediency but rather about setting a new course for US Farm and Food policy, “We believe that the marriage of the two constituencies of the old Farm Bill that began 40 years ago makes little sense today.” There are just two four-day weeks left on the House calendar before Congress breaks for its long August recess. The House Ag Committee has two public hearings this week on the future of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission; and the full House is set to take up defense spending, coal reuse and consumer energy relief, but there is nothing scheduled for a nutrition bill or for a move to conference with the Senate on the Farm Bill. Meanwhile Senate leaders say they will have nothing to do with a Farm Bill that does not have a nutrition title.

SHARE Last week it looked as though there was some movement toward a new Farm Bill in Congress. The House sent its Farm Bill to the Senate, and the Senate said it was ready to go conference. But as this week began with no further progress and with more political posturing. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said, on the House floor, that Republicans do not want to conference with the Senate on the Farm Bill until the House passes a nutrition bill, “It is our hope that we can get a nutrition bill to the floor.” He added that the GOP feels these programs are important but are in need of serious reform. House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer was furious about what he sees as another delay, “Three weeks ago you said we needed to pass a Farm Bill with no nutrition title as a way to get to conference. We did that, but there is still no move to go to conference with the Senate.” Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Another Week Begins With No Progress on Farm Bill
A year after Francisco Arratia Saldierna’s murder in Matamoros, Reporters Without Borders urges the Mexican authorities to put an end to the continuing impunity in this case and at the time press on with the federal government’s recent efforts to give journalists better protection. Reports News Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more News September 1, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for concrete results from investigators a year after columnist’s murder A year after the murder of newspaper columnist Francisco Arratia Saldierna on 31 August 2004 in Matamoros (in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas), Reporters Without Borders today drew attention to the continuing impunity in this case and at the time urged the federal government to continue its efforts to give journalists better protection. Arratia wrote for the El Imparcial, El Regional, Mercurio and El Cinco newspapers.”The arrest of Arratia’s presumed killer, Raúl Castelán, on 24 September 2004 was not followed by any significant progress in the case and, although Castelán admitted being involved, he has never been charged with this murder,” the press freedom organisation said.”We welcomed the recent statements by the federal authorities in support of press freedom, but we would like to see concrete results, especially from the investigations into the murders of journalists,” Reporters Without Borders added.President Vicente Fox and his government have recently shown renewed interest in journalists’ problems. On 29 August, Fox met Inter-American Press Association president Alejandro Miró Quesada, who talked about legislative needs and the need to punish crimes against journalists.At this meeting, Miró was promised government support for a bill to make attacks on journalists federal crimes, meaning they would have to be investigated by the federal authorities, who are better equipped and less susceptible to pressure from local authorities. It would also abolish any time limitation on the punishment of such crimes and would establish heavier sentences.Miguel Ángel Meneses Maciel, a former senior official in the department of prosecutions, was meanwhile named on 25 August as special prosecutor for crimes against journalists. He will be attached to the federal prosecutor’s office.As well as the Arratia case, Reporters Without Borders hopes all these measures will help produce results in the cases of Francisco Javier Ortiz Franco of the weekly Zeta, killed on 22 June 2004 in Tijuana, Raúl Gibb Guerrero of the regional daily La Opinión, killed on 8 April 2005 in Veracruz state, and Dolores Guadalupe García Escamilla, killed on 5 April 2005 in Nuevo Laredo.

News News Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources April 10, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Receive email alerts News SingaporeAsia – Pacific October 2, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has condemned rules gagging free expression online, in the same way as for traditional media, in the run-up to parliamentary elections in Singapore.Singapore Information, Communications and Arts minister, Balaji Sadasivan, repeated on 3 April 2006, the strict rules in force since 2001 on Internet use in electoral periods. The Singapore government has already warned Internet users who are likely to discsuss politics online that they are at risk of legal action. No official date has been announced for the elections but they are due to be held in the next few months.”Once again the Singapore authorities are showing their determination to prevent the holding of a genuinely democratic debate on the Internet,” the press freedom organisation said.During a parliamentary debate on 3 April 2006, Balaji Sadasivan repeated and enlarged on the very restrictive measures applying to Internet use during election campaigns. Bloggers and website managers do not have the right to back a particular candidate’s programme. Outside of elections periods, bloggers have to register with the Media Development Authority (MDA) if they want to openly and regularly defend a political line. But during election periods, the fact of being registered does not allow them to express opinons on political issues. Website managers are subjected to the same rules.These restrictions will now also apply to new Internet technology. The minister specified that use during the campaign of podcasting and videocasting, two new devices for putting audio or video online, will be banned if they carry political content. During the last election campaign, in November 2001, the main opposition party, the Singapore Democratic Party, made use of podcasting.Sinapan Samydorai, chairman of the freedom of expression organisation Think Centre, who has been forced to register his website, said that there has been no improvement since the last elections in 2001, during which official party websites were the only authorised source of political news and information. Another Singaporean blogger, known under the pseudonym of Alex, highlighted the confusion that has been caused by the minister’s remarks about the exact limits of Internet-users rights to express themselves politically in his country. “The minister’s statements raise more new questions than it provides clarification”, he told Reporters Without Borders.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org to go further Help by sharing this information April 5, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government steps up online censorship in run-up to elections Organisation SingaporeAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Singapore News Reporters Without Borders condemned the Singapore government’s determination to prevent democratic debate online after information minister Balaji Sadasivan reminded a parliamentary session on 3 April 2006, of the very strict rules in forces since 2001 on use of the Internet in election periods.

Mark Wilson/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Pastor Andrew Brunson, the American who was detained in Turkey for two years before his release over the weekend, said he is “hated” in the country where he had lived and worked for more than 20 years in large part because of the Turkish government’s accusation that he spied and was linked to terrorism.“At this point I’m one of the most hated men in Turkey, probably,” Brunson told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America” Tuesday.Brunson, 50, was a Christian evangelist in Turkey for more than 20 years before he was arrested in October 2016 and accused by the Turkish government of espionage and ties to terrorist groups. He, his lawyers and the U.S. deny those charges.“We were never involved in anything political,” Brunson told Stephanopoulos. He said he and his wife were shocked by their arrest, which happened on their oldest son’s birthday.Prior to his release over the weekend, Brunson’s case had created a deep rift in U.S.-Turkish relations, with the Trump administration heavily committed to securing his freedom and punishing its NATO ally with economic penalties for not doing so. An evangelical Christian pastor, he had also become a rallying cry for religious freedom advocates in the U.S.The Turkish court sentenced him Friday to three years and one a half months, but given his time served and that it was his first arrest, his house arrest and travel ban were lifted. He was flown out of the country that Friday on a U.S. military aircraft, stopping in Germany for a medical evacuation before landing in Washington Saturday. There, he met with President Trump in an Oval Office welcome celebration.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
