The problems with the Amlin Challenge Cup

first_img For all the excellent rugby and intriguing on-field plotlines, both of which have been abundant, 2013-14 will always be remembered for its ugly European saga. A very public process of bureaucratic bickering between unions left onlookers alienated, not to mention fearful for the future.Professionalism turned 18 years old at the start of the season, and it felt like the era had reached a particularly unruly adolescence – if not acne-ridden then certainly riled by hormones and sulking disruptively.Friday’s Amlin Challenge Cup climax at the Cardiff Arms Parks feels like a reminder of such frustration. For starters, it is an irrelevance in terms of qualification for the inaugural Rugby Champions Cup. Wasps’ second showdown with Stade Francais in Paris this weekend would have determined the last tournament place even if finalists Northampton and Bath hadn’t already secured involvement thanks to fine domestic campaigns.Brive and Stade, the French sides who reached the quarters, figured that out early. They deployed vastly depleted line-ups in order not to compromise their Top 14 prospects. The indifference spoke volumes.Squad depth and impressive stamina have allowed two English challengers to battle through to a decider, but this is a hugely undermined competition.After an epic win over Leicester in Friday’s Premiership semi, Jim Mallinder must think hard about how to manage his resources. As ever, the East Midlands derby was an immensely draining affair – physically and emotionally – so resting some key names, such as match-winner Tom Wood, before facing Saracens at Twickenham on May 31 could be wise.Bluntly speaking, this game is more of a hindrance to Saints hopes of a first ever league title. Sure, there is a chance to hand valuable game-time to recovering players, but it feels rather sad to be focusing on that.Gaining game time: Saints prop Alex Corbisiero would be happy for match practiceNobody would begrudge Bath a trophy to cap an impressive period of development. Since beating Newcastle Falcons 21-0 in grim conditions on the opening evening, Mike Ford’s men did not drop out of top-four contention in the Premiership until Harlequins hi-jacked them nine days ago. Silverware could ease the pain of such a cruel finish. However, viewers with England’s trip to New Zealand in mind will dwell on something else – the fitness of both George Ford and David Wilson. Injuries to either of those men would intensify Stuart Lancaster’s current headache into a crippling migraine. Without disrespecting possible stand-ins Danny Cipriani and Henry Thomas, both the former are central to the tourists’ plans for that ominous first Test in Auckland.Of course, even those with big summer assignments ahead will not hold back for a nanosecond. On an all-weather surface in South Wales, the pace should be too fast for tentative thoughts anyway. Even if fringe players do feature, there is no reason why supporters should not be treated to a decent contest. One set will head back over the Severn Bridge full of good cheer.But it must be tough for fans to feel affection for the Amlin Cup, a tournament of awkward kick-off times that is bullied by television schedules. Take the quarter-final between Sale and Saints on a Thursday evening at the beginning of April. Just 4,650 hardy souls braved the AJ Bell Stadium.Although Sale drew the second smallest total Premiership attendance behind Newcastle over the entire season, invariably rainy Friday nights in Salford still brought an average of 6,350 through the turnstiles. This was a knockout tie. A 27 per cent decrease in attendance should sound alarm bells. Then again, television is the all-consuming cash cow that nudges the loyal fan into touch.Man of value: David WilsonAlmost inevitably, embarrassing administrative issues have foreshadowed Friday’s final. Bath and Northampton were only allocated an initial 1,000 tickets each by European Rugby Cup – a laughable insult. An online petition ensued, demanding to move the fixture to a more suitable venue, such as Cardiff City Stadium (capacity: 26,828), from the Arms Parks (capacity 12,125). It drew 1,786 signatures.Without achieving its primary goal, the commotion did free a few more tickets up to the clubs. Queues snaked back from office windows and a sell-out awaits. That said, most of Bath and Northampton’s regular-season followers missed out. They were understandably angry and will either be at home or feeling it in the pocket having had to garner a seat through a middleman for an extortionate amount. TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Running the risk: Players like Bath’s George Ford and Northampton’s Tom Wood may risk it for silverware It feels a fittingly farcical way of saying goodbye to the ERC’s governance.

Luke 2:7Dear Friends,As we prepare to celebrate the child who was born for us, we grieve for the children taken from us too soon. The Newtown children and their teachers were not the only ones to be killed by gun violence this year, but we feel their deaths at a deeper, collective level somehow, as if at last we can acknowledge that by our passivity, we have allowed too many such deaths to occur.In the aftermath of the violence that unfolded at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we would be made of stone if our faith in a loving God didn’t falter. “Where was God?” we ask. “How could God let this happen?”Yet the more compelling question isn’t where God was last Friday morning, but rather, where we were.As St. Teresa of Avila once wrote, “Christ has no body on earth but ours. Ours are the feet with which he walks, ours the hands with which he blesses, our the eyes with which looks on this world with compassion.”Surely those who gave their lives for the children’s sake were running with the feet of Christ, and those who grieve are crying Christ’s tears as well as their own. But what about the rest of us? Where are we now?As people of faith, we are good at showing up with flowers, platters of food, and candles to light a dark sky, and we need these things to remind us that goodness is stronger than evil and love is stronger than hate. But now is also a time for us to show up in ways that will prevent such deaths in the future.There is a new Spirit blowing in our land. Surely you have felt it. Momentum is building daily as more and more voices cry out for change. I am convinced that we are at an opportune moment to fundamentally change the course of our nation, a time when even the smallest of gestures can make a tremendous difference for good.I invite you to join with people of faith and good will across our land.On Friday morning at 9.30 a.m. EST, hundreds of faith communities will mark the one-week anniversary of the Newtown killings with a moment of prayer. If you have a church bell, let it toll 28 times for the dead. Dean Gary Hall and I will be at the National Cathedral with an interfaith gathering of religious leaders committed to a sustained campaign against the root causes of gun violence. We will listen to the tolling of the Cathedral’s largest bell, offer prayers, and urge our elected officials to act with wisdom and courage in confronting the appalling violence that has plagued our country for decades.In the days before Christmas, please write or call your congressional representatives, Senators, and President Obama. Express your grief, concerns and longing for an end to gun violence. You don’t need to be an expert; our strength is in moral and spiritual clarity. Speak from your faith and love of children. Invite your family and friends to do the same. Here is how you can contact them: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtmlIf you’d like to speak of specific action, there is an emerging spiritual and moral consensus that the following steps need to be taken:1. A clear ban on all semi-automatic weapons and large rounds of ammunition2. Tighter controls on all gun sales3. Mental health care reform, including improved care for our most vulnerable citizens4. A critical look at our culture’s’ glorification of violence.The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations has just issued a nationwide call to action and prayer, including a commemoration of the Feast of Holy Innocents. Please consider whether you and your congregation would like to participate.Hold your children and loved ones especially close this Christmas. And in honor of those lost and those who grieve, please consider adding your voice to the chorus that is calling for change. Christ has no hands, feet, or voice on earth but ours.May he find room in our hearts.Faithfully,Mariann Edgar BuddeBishop of Washington Rector Shreveport, LA TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Submit a Press Release Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Comments (1) Press Release Service Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Jane Graham says: last_img read more

Gillum vs. DeSantis: Let’s Talk about it

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia This Monday on LET’S TALK ABOUT IT with Rod Love and Greg Jackson, as the debate rages on over the pending confirmation SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, the burning question is whether this is truly about an alleged sexual assault from nearly 40 years ago, or is this just politics at play. The “Dynamic Duo” will once again step forward to facilitate a discussion that others are afraid to have.Also, the race for Florida Governor is getting very interesting. With allegations of racism, infidelity, anti-semitism, etc., is “Chicago-style” politics becoming the new norm in Florida? These and other topics will be discussed on Central Florida’s top-rated Monday Night radio talk show — LET’S TALK ABOUT IT!Join Rod Love, Greg Jackson and the entire Let’s Talk Nation on LET’S TALK ABOUT IT, every Monday from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on 1680am WOKB, online at www.wokbradio.com, on Facebook @letstalkaboutitlive or call-in to 407-894-1680.

Well that sure is funny, because I have read that the Alaskan Native Tribes do not like Kavanaugh at all, because of some of his past rulings that rubbed them wrong….while I don’t always agree with Lisa Murkowski, I have listened to her being interviewed several times, and she is a very intelligent lady, I will say that about her. Mama Mia Dr. Christine Ford says she doesn’t want Kavanaugh impeached. I sure don’t know why, but I didn’t even know that Supreme Court Justices could be impeached….so there, that fact gives me HOPE!

Go for it! Let’s talk about what Senator Lindsey Graham stated AFTER Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as the Supreme Court Justice for life….Lindsey Graham talked a little then said, “God Help Us All”…yeah, that didn’t sound like someone who was Kavanaugh’s biggest supporter on the committee, which that is what he seemed to be before his confirmation, but with this comment of his afterwards, it seems even Graham is even worried now! I think Graham’s crazy carrying on at the confirmation hearings was only sucking up to Trump in order to try to get himself the AG position, or maybe the chairman position of the Senate Judicial Committee, I don’t think it was about his advocating for Kavanaugh as the SCOTUS at all….IMO Please enter your name here The scariest thing I have heard is that Brett Kavanaugh knows secrets of this country that others don’t know. He said something of this nature in the confirmation hearings, but then I read that he is privy to the nuclear codes….OMG, I don’t know if this is true or not, but what is he doing with them? Who else other than him, and Trump has them? I HOPE that was fake news! Now two very angry arrogant men have the nuclear codes….that is frightening!

Living in the shadow of Limerick’s superdump

first_imgLinkedin Print Cautious welcome for easing of Aughinish sanctions Pedestrian crossing falls ‘out of the sky’ in Pallaskenry Council row over funding for Ballingarry and Askeaton NewsLocal NewsLiving in the shadow of Limerick’s superdumpBy Alan Jacques – May 21, 2015 1501 Proposal for Adare affordable housing pilot project Advertisement Email Alan Jacques takes a look at the impact the local authority deal to lease the former landfill site to a US firm is having in West Limerick.WHEN Gortadroma landfill was sealed and the site closed last year after 25 years, residents in Ballyhahill finally breathed a sigh of relief.The burden of living in the shadow of a malodorous rubbish heap where the detritus of modern life was buried appeared to be lifted at long last for the local community.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Gortadroma was the largest landfill site in Limerick since opening in 1990, and with operations at the site coming to an end in April 2014, families in close proximity hoped that their quality of life might now improve.No more would they have to suffer the sickening stench that filled the air and prevented them from opening windows on fine summer days. No more would they have the worry about being plagued with rats and fear for their children while playing outside. No more would they have to contend with traffic congestion on their rural country roads from heavy trucks travelling in and out of the dump. No more would people’s homes be deemed worthless or unsellable, and perhaps in time, sons and daughters of landowners who had long left the area might even return and build new houses to raise their families. These were the very real hopes of families living in Gortadroma, many who have been there for generations.These hopes, however, proved short-lived for the local community in Ballyhahill when last September Limerick City and County Council announced a joint bid for the lease on the Gortadroma landfill by two American companies to develop a gasification plant and create 150 new jobs.Cadence EnviroPower (CEP) proposed to convert 1,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste a day into syngas at the Ballyhahill site. Estimated to be worth €190 million over 30 years, CEP will pay the local authority a lump sum of €50,000 on the signing of the lease agreement for the landfill, which is due to happen this week.On receipt of all necessary consents and closure of their debt financing, they will then pay the council a further lump sum of €4 million.According to CEP’s lease submission, the joint bid from Cadence Infrastructure LLC and EnviroPower Management Incorporated expects construction and commissioning to take one year. When operations get under way, they will pay the council €4 million a year for 30 years.But while the deal might signify a serious windfall for Limerick City and County Council and the local economy with the creation of jobs, residents living a stone’s throw from the landfill site are still reeling from the announcement. Families in Ballyhahill are deeply angered that the lease for the gasification plant will be signed, sealed and delivered before any public consultation process takes place with those whose lives will be impacted the most — the residents. This they say only adds insult to injury.Residents claim the council has not given them any information on the proposed gasification plant and any information they have uncovered has been through newspapers and the internet. They feel they have been left them high and dry by the council and their local representatives.The residents I met tell me that the only correspondence they have received so far on the Gortadroma lease was a letter from Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien to outline the pros and cons of the CEP bid.This week Cllr O’Brien said: “Following corresponding with the residents adjacent to Gortadroma by way of an information letter, I have met and received calls from these residents with respect to the proposed gasification plant at the site. Whether their concerns are real or perceived, we as public representatives must meet and listen to these residents’ concerns and a public meeting is needed in Ballyhahill to address these concerns.”Ballyhahill residents Michael Purtill and Anthony ShineMichael Purtill, like his grandfather and great-grandfather before him has lived in Ballyhahill all his life. From the young father-of-three’s back garden you are looking straight across at the Gortadroma site and its three lofty mounds of rubbish sealed under a deceiving carpet of green grass.Looking across the wild and windswept rural landscape, I shuddered as the unpleasant realisation of what actually is in them thar hills sunk in.Turning his worried gaze from the landfill, Michael tells me that he worries for the future of his children and what they will be faced with in the coming years. He fears the next three decades will return local families to the landfill days of foul odours and the scourge of rodents for another 30 years.“We live in a lovely rural area. Gortadroma was a local dump that became a super dump and now there are talks of a gasification plant. Where will it all end?” he asked.“It’s all cash and dash with the council. They did this and got away with it before. They are only interested in money. They have shown absolutely no respect to the people that have to live here.“There’s one thing saying that the plant will create 150 jobs, but we have to live next to the site, we will still be here when those workers clock out and go home. We are the ones that will be left with the mess 24/7, 365 days a year,” Mr Purtill predicts.Anthony Shine, who has lived in Ballyhahill for 60 years, was equally concerned when the Limerick Post visited the area this week. Anthony picketed the landfill site when it first opened 25 years ago and insists that residents will not take this latest development lying down.“Money is the only thing the council cares about, so they are going to have to cough up if they want to satisfy residents,” Mr Shine commented.“The council are public servants and we are their customers; we pay their wages, yet they made no effort to tell us their plans or to organise a public meeting. We are still in the dark,” he added.Paul, who moved into the area six years ago, tells me how his family moved out to this beautiful County Limerick setting in search of country life, fresh air and a good place to bring up children.“It’s ironic isn’t it? In all that time I kept hearing that the landfill was getting closer to its shutdown date and how things would improve when it was gone. What’s our option now? We couldn’t even sell our house if we wanted to. Who would want to buy it?”The three local men took me on a trip around the Ballyhahill countryside. At the back of the dump in Carnagh, Ballyhahill, I am struck by the number of derelict houses. Nine homes within a half-mile of the landfill site are currently unoccupied.“The council bought these and left them to rot. Rats and the smell plagued the people that previously lived in them. They’ve been empty for between five and ten years some of them,” Mr Shine claims.“My own brother’s house is empty for the past two years and we haven’t had one single offer. Seven families are gone from the area and the school and the whole community is affected. People won’t even consider viewing a house here because of the dump.”One of the derelict houses in Carnagh, Ballyhahill.Residents feel “dumped on” by the council and are angry that they have yet to be brought to the table on an issue that has huge impact on their lives. They are fearful of what the future holds and being left out of the loop has not helped matters thus far.The US company behind the multi-million euro energy generation project promises that if the proposal gets the green light that not only will they meet European environmental standards but exceed them “many times over”.CEP is proposing to convert 365,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste into syngas on an annual basis at Gortadroma. The men behind the proposal gave a strong sales pitch to local councillors last November and described their company as “family people”.Sinn Féin councillor Ciara McMahon, who has relatives living in the area, told the Limerick Post that she sees the gasification plant as a “huge opportunity” for the area. However, she insists that the residents must be at the forefront of the decision-making process.“I understand the residents’ feeling of the heartache they have endured with the landfill. But more information needs to be given in a public meeting and public consultation process to allow all the facts to be outlined properly so an informed decision can be made by the residents. I understand the fear of this and I will be calling for the council to make a meeting happen sooner rather than later,” said Cllr McMahon.While supportive of new jobs, Fianna Fáil TD for Limerick, Niall Collins thinks it is a mistake for people to be rushing out prematurely to welcome and promote this proposal.“The fact is that these so-called ‘waste to energy’ plants have caused serious tension in communities where they have been constructed in the past. Residents in Gortadroma and Ballyhahill have genuine concerns about issues such as any potential effects on house prices, potential health and environmental impact, what will be done with the by-products of this process and the ability of the local infrastructure to deal with the massive upsurge in traffic arising from the development,” said Deputy Collins.“All the commentary to date seems to centre around how much the council collect from the plant operators per annum, with little if anything accruing to the local affected community. These concerns are very real and already I have been contacted by quite a number of residents in the area who are deeply distressed by what they think is already ‘a done deal’.“This is not a done deal in my view nor should it be. Instead of hastily rushing out to promote the scheme, I would like to see the council working together to make sure that there is proper understanding about the scale of what is being sought and a proper discussion about the environmental, health and social impacts of these developments. These discussions need to include the local community, which will be asked to have this development on its doorstep. The local community should not be an add-on at the end of the process — it needs to be involved from day one and real concerns need to be taken seriously,” he told the Limerick Post.When contacted for comment this week, a spokesperson for the local authority explained: “Limerick City and County Council looked for expressions of interest for future uses of the landfill in 2013. After due process a preferred bidder was selected. The proposal involved processing waste for energy recovery.“The local Gortadroma Joint Monitoring Committee action group, a group set up to represent the interests of local residents, was informed that this bid was being considered in April 2014. A presentation was given to this committee in December 2014 detailing the proposals of the preferred bidder.“On March 11 and 12, 2015, a visit to was arranged to a plant of a similar type to that proposed. Two local residents, who are members of the monitoring committee, participated on this trip along with four local councillors and two members of staff. On March 23 the council agreed to the proposal to lease 14 hectares of land forming part of Gortadroma Landfill to Cadence EnviroPower.”The council also points out that CEP cannot carry out any works other then a site investigation until they have all permissions in place. These permissions will require public consultation and the public will have its opportunity to object or raise questions as part of the application process.“Following a recent Adare-Rathkeale municipal district meeting, it has been agreed to hold a public meeting in the near future to update local residents,” the council spokesperson concluded.center_img Previous articleLimerick to Cork road is barrier to growthNext articleIf you find us don’t revive us – con woman’s last stand Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSBallyhahillCadence Infrastructure LLCCadenceEnvironPowerCllr Ciara McMahonCllr Emmett O’BrienEnviroPower Management IncorporatedfeaturedGortadroma landfilllimerickLimerick City and County CouncilNiall Collins TD RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Proposal for Adare affordable housing pilot project Adare-Rathkeale district in need of ‘plain-speaking’ voice last_img read more

Senior Advocate Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing on behalf of Dr. Soz, submitted to the Court about the contradictory stands of the government, stating, “One fine day in August, you put me under detention. Now in their Counter, they say that I am not under detention and that I’m free”. To this, Justice Mishra remarked that the Counter averred that Prof. Soz had travelled outside J&K. Dr. Singhvi responded that the Petitioner had been unwell, and had only travelled for medical reasons. Refusing to address any other submissions of Singhvi, the Bench proceeded to dispose of the matter in view of the Counter Affidavit which stated that “no such order [pertaining to detention of Prof. Soz] has ever been passed”. The habeas corpus petition, filed by Advocate-on-Record Sunil Fernandes, on behalf of Prof. Soz’s wife, Mrs. Mumtazunnisa Soz, stated that “ten months have passed since his first detention and he is yet to be informed of his grounds of detention. All efforts by him to obtain a copy of the detention order(s) have been of no avail due to the illegal, arbitrary exercise of powers by the Respondent No. 2”. The plea further contended that the detention was wholly contrary and perverse to the constitutional safeguards laid down under Articles 21 and 22 of the Constitution of India, as well as the law on preventive detention. It was further in contravention of the statutory scheme of the J&K Public Safety Act, 1978, under which the detention order had been purportedly passed. However, in a denial of the contentions placed in the habeas corpus plea, the J&K Home Department filed a Counter Affidavit, claiming that the Petitioner had never been detained, nor put under any house arrest. It further stated that there was no question of provision of detention order as no such order had been passed in the first place. Averring that the submissions in the plea were “false, frivolous and baseless”, the Counter also alluded to two instances of Prof. Soz having travelled outside J&K by air in 2019. Additionally, the claim that the Station House Officer of Budgam had visited the Petitioner’s residence to instruct the security guards about the alleged detention was also denied by the J&K Home Department.
