Championship blog: Round 20 wrap

first_img… And finallyBristol welcome Rotherham to the Memorial ground on Friday night in the B&I Cup for what could be a dress rehearsal for the play-offs, as the GKIPA Championship takes a break this weekend. By Richard GraingerWith three rounds remaining in Stage 1 of the Greene King IPA Championship, Bristol and London Welsh have already booked their place in the play-offs.Welsh win battle of ExilesLondon Scottish 21, London Welsh 32To the men in red, Sunday’s trip to the Athletic Ground was a huge potential banana skin on the promotion trail, having already lost twice to their former neighbours. Scottish led 14-12 at the break, and another reversal for Welsh looked on the cards.Playoffs to ponder: Burnell of London WelshBut Scottish, who were the only side outside the top four with any hope of making the play-offs, were blown away by a polished second half performance, with tries from Dan Browne and a late score from the powerful Joe Ajuwa. Alex Davies, who spent 10 minutes in the bin for a deliberate knock-on, added 17 points with the boot and Seb Jewell added another five.Head coach Justin Burnell later took his men down the road to the Old Deer Park for a beer at his own expense to celebrate progress to the next stage.“Unfortunately I’ve got to foot the bill now,” said Burnell. “It will cost me, but I’ve got no problem with that… our goal was to get into the top four.”But Burnell was quick to lower expectations for the two-legged knockout stage saying, “I think we’re the dark horses. Bristol are a very good side and so too are Leeds and Rotherham, but we’ve lost the least amount of the games and conceded the least amount – we’re not a bad little team.”Bristol romp to record league winBristol 82, Ealing Trailfinders 28When is a rout not a rout? The answer to this is when you score twelve tries but still concede a try bonus point. Ealing stuck to the task throughout — even when down to 13 men. And in what was more of a romp than a rout, nine different Bristol players touching down.Ealing, now on their second pint in the Last Chance Saloon, were blown away by an emphatic display of attacking rugby, but a performance that bore the hallmark of Bristol’s season: a lack of ruthless defence when the opposition had the ball.“We need to focus on being as ruthless as we can,” said Director of Rugby Andy Robinson, “Ealing were a nuisance and we expected that.”Ealing now face Nottingham and Plymouth — two sides who will be putting their feet up at the end of Stage 1 — as well as Rotherham, who won’t. Jersey play both Exiles sides and face a tricky trip to Bedford on the final Saturday. With an eight-point gap, matters still aren’t quite settled at the foot of the division.Leeds lack concentration in final quarter LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Nottingham 20, Leeds Carnegie 27In his sevens days: Rob Vickerman of LeedsTries from David Doherty, Oli Goss and replacement Rob Vickerman and 12 points from the boot of Ian Hughes at Meadow Lane on Sunday gave Carnegie a 3-27 point lead in the 65th minute, but the Green and Whites fought back to pick up a losing bonus point. Ryan Hough, Henry Purdy and Javiah Pohe crossed for the hosts with a late flourish in similar vein to Leeds’ comeback against Bristol last Sunday. This leaves Carnegie with one foot in the play-off zone.Islanders marooned by MoseleyJersey 8, Moseley 39A resounding five-try win for Moseley at St. Peter on Saturday nudged the Midlanders into seventh place. This wasn’t in the script for the Islanders, who would have looked on this fixture as the means of settling the relegation battle with Ealing once and for all. And failing to pick up even a losing bonus point could yet be costly.Wingman Simon Hunt scored a hat-trick for the visitors while Anthony Carter and Matt Williams also touched down.Despite trailing just 8-10 at the break, Jersey binned their low-risk gameplan and ran the ball from deep, conceding two interceptions in the process.Titans dish out more blues for BedfordBedford Blues 12, Rotherham 33All action: Tom Cruse for Sale in 2012Rotherham have had little difficulty in dispatching sides below them in the division, so it was business as usual at Goldington Road on Saturday, despite being reduced to 13 men in the first half. But with the Blues also losing two men to the bin, Titans’ dominated the second half with tries from Tom Cruse, Ali Birch and Dan Sanderson. The league’s top scorer, Juan Pablo Socini added18 points with the boot to pass the 300 mark for the season and keep the Titans on course for the play-offs.Pirates win the battle of the TamarPlymouth 20, Cornish Pirates 26With nothing on this game other than trans-Tamar bragging rights, Pirates shaded it with a Tom Kessell try two minutes from time. However, both sides are in action in the quarter-finals of the British & Irish Cup as Pirates face Pontypridd at the Mennaye Field on Sunday and Plymouth travel to Leeds on Friday for an 8pm kick-off.

Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists

November 11, 2020 Find out more Tunisia’s new president urged to consolidate press freedom gains News October 25, 2019 Find out more Receive email alerts News Reporters from Al-Jazeera, Al-Hurra, Al-Arabiya, Al-Mayadeen, Deutsche Presse-Agentur, Reuters and SIPAUSA were refused entry to Carthage Palace for the press conference that Tunisia’s President Kais Saied and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, gave yesterday.Presidential guards confiscated the professional cards of journalists from the Al-Araby TV channel.Rachida Ennaifer, the presidential adviser in charge of information and communication, said only a small number of reporters were admitted to the press conference because of the sudden nature of President Erdogan’s visit and the extensive security measures that had to be taken at short notice.“The grounds given by the Tunisian president’s office are completely specious,” said Souhaieb Khayati, the head of RSF’s North Africa bureau. “The discrimination between media outlets, the lack of transparency and the random announcements about the presidential activities violated press freedom, one of the Tunisian revolution’s most solid achievements. We urge the president’s office to establish a clear strategy for handling journalists and ensuring that all media outlets have access to information.”Ever since Saied’s installation as Tunisia’s president in October, Tunisian and foreign journalists have noted an amateurish approach to press relations and increasing mistrust towards journalists on the part of presidential aides. When President Saied visited the central city of Sidi Bouzid, the cradle of the revolution, on 17 December, journalists were physically attacked by members of the presidential guard while the president and members of his staff looked on without reacting.Since the Ben Ali regime’s fall in 2011, Tunisia has engaged in an overhaul of the country’s media sector with the aim of enabling media outlets and journalists to fully play their democratic role.Tunisia joined some 30 other countries in September in encouraging access to freely-reported, independent, pluralistic and reliable news and information in the digital age by signing the Information and Democracy Partnership, an initiative launched by RSF.Although much remains to be done, Tunisia’s commitment to press freedom since the revolution has borne fruit and its ranking inRSF’s World Press Freedom Index has gone from 164th in 2011 to 72nd in 2019. to go further Organisation December 26, 2019 Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists News November 12, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information News TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Activities in the fieldCondemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedoms Conflicts of interestFreedom of expressionViolence last_img read more

PUSD’s grant is one of 40 totaling $244 million announced today by the California Department of Education (See CDE release below).PUSD, Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, Pasadena City College (PCC), Foothill Workforce Investment Board (FWIB), Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF), and the city of Pasadena have formalized a partnership to prepare students for college and careers, successfully transition to postsecondary education, and effectively link them to careers in high wage, high need industries. This local consortium, LINC (Linking Industry for NextGen Careers) Pasadena, builds capacity and coherently links existing local and regional structures to sustain PUSD and PCC pathways to careers by establishing a strong local intermediary structure. It also strengthens and expands K-12 Pathways not currently linked to regional consortia and helps recruit and retain students. The goal is to ensure all students have the skills, attributes and experiences that will prepare them for college, careers and life.LINC Pasadena builds upon the statewide support structure PUSD has been a part of since its selection in 2009 as one of nine Linked Learning Districts in California. The secondary program has grown to serve 1871 students in grades 9-12 within ten Pathways at all six high schools, including two alternative education sites. Four of the ten PUSD Pathways are part of two large regional California Career Pathways Trust consortia grants focusing on information and communication technology led by PCC and advanced manufacturing led by Long Beach Community College. This grant expands the six innovative career pathway programs focused on the health care industry, legal careers, business and entrepreneurship, culinary arts and hospitality, and other creative industries supporting the community’s workforce development needs that do not yet benefit from the systematic linkage to regional and local industry resources.For more information, visit read more

Company seeks to build $1.5B power plant in North Bergen

first_imgNORTH BERGEN — Los Angeles-based company Diamond Generating Corp – a subsidiary of Mitsubishi – is seeking to build a power plant in North Bergen, according to a spokesman. The plant would send its electricity to New York City.The company has been meeting for several months with elected officials, state agencies, and community stake holders in both New York and New Jersey to determine if the project is environmentally and economically feasible.If approved by the state, the North Bergen Liberty Generating Project would be located at an industrial site at 94th Street and Railroad Avenue.Currently, the space is used for a construction demolition recycling company, according to Diamond, but is zoned for an electric plant.Local officials are onboard with the plans because the proposed location is isolated from residential spaces, and could be a tax boon to the town.The proposed project would cost $1.5 billion. It would consist of multiple components, according to an economic and fiscal analysis. They include the 1,200 mega watt combined cycle electric power generating facility itself; and a 6.5-mile, 345 kilovolt underground and submarine lead cable, which would traverse North Bergen and Bergen County and ultimately connect to a substation in Manhattan.The plant would mitigate the need to run a new gas pipeline under the Hudson River, according to Diamond spokesman Brian Hague. He said the plant would be the “cleanest” electric-generating facility in the region. The plant would also “utilize the latest combustion turbine technology, which is 34 percent more efficient than the average existing power plant serving New York City,” Hague said in a statement.It would bring in $53 million in tax revenue for both states, according to the economic analysis.“While this project is still in the planning stages, we believe it represents a tremendous opportunity to secure the township’s tax base in the coming decades and continue to keep property taxes stable,” North Bergen spokesman Phil Swibinski said, in a statement. ×A coal-powered generating station in Jersey City A coal-powered generating station in Jersey Citylast_img read more

Aqueous Adds Dates To Winter Tour, Including First-Ever All-Improv Performance

first_imgRock quartet Aqueous is scheduled to head out on their 2019 co-headlining winter tour with BIG Something early next month on February 7th. On Wednesday, the band announced two additional shows to the schedule, with new upcoming performances at Anthology in Rochester, New York on March 15th, and Kings Rook Club in Erie, Pennsylvania the following evening on March 16th. The performance at Anthology should be a unique experience for both the band and their fans in attendance, as it will be Aqueous’ first-ever show with one of three sets comprised of all-improvised music.“We’ve always toyed with the idea of doing a fully improvised, completely ‘off the cuff’ set, and Rochester seemed like a perfect place to do it,” guitarist Mike Gantzer said about the upcoming show. “The band really comes alive when we are free to create on-the-fly, and we can’t wait to go on that journey with the audience for one of THREE sets that night.”Related: Aqueous Shares Pro-Shot Video Of ‘Kitty Chaser (Explosions)’ With Umphrey’s McGee’s Andy FaragAs for the March 16th show, fans should still be thrilled to hear the Aqueous crew are set to return to the lake-side city, which sits just a few hours down the road from the band’s home base of Buffalo, New York. Both Gantzer and guitarist/keyboardist Dave Loss were at Kings Rook Club back over the summer for a duet acoustic performance in mid-June.“Erie was an early second home for AQ,” Gantzer continued. “Many of our fans’ favorite sets over the years have gone down in that city, to the point that there’s a saying they created for it; ‘Never miss an Erie show’ – we have to agree on that one!”Tickets for the two added shows are on sale now, and can be purchased through the band’s website.last_img read more
