These are uncertain times. The economic, political and social consequences of the coronavirus outbreak — even in the short term — are still as clear as mud.The tension continues to reverberate across financial markets. One day, share pickers are cheering signs of slowing Covid-19 infection rates and talk of lockdowns being eased. The next, sees bad pandemic-related news released alongside bouts of shocking economic data. Yesterday, news emerged that US industrial production in March had collapsed at its sharpest pace since 1946!5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Share pickers who’ve bought quality stocks should see their investment portfolios bounce broadly back over the long term. It’s still not helpful for the nerves, of course. And it comes as little consolation for stock owners who had plans to cash in their holdings now, or in the near future.Make it count with these 6% yieldsWhy not play this intense volatility to your advantage though? Trading volumes continue to boom as traders frantically buy and sell with every little change on the news ticker. It’s a trend that’s boosted business at Plus500, a platform operator specialising in CFDs, of late.This particular share has surged more than 60% in value over the past month. Compare this with, say, the 8% gain that the broader FTSE 100 has reported. Plus 500 isn’t the only trading house to enjoy stunning gains however. IG Group’s risen a decent 16% over the same period.What also brings these shares together is the promise of big dividend yields. The probability that they can keep paying ultra-generous rewards to their shareholders is, of course, particularly desirable. That’s because dividends are being slashed across the London stock market (around a third of Footsie-listed firms have already swung the axe).So what are these yields? Well, at IG Group, the forward reading sits at 6.2%. Meanwhile, Plus500 boasts a figure of 6.6%.But forget about their value from an income perspective for a moment. Both shares also offer plenty of bang for your buck from an earnings perspective. IG sports a corresponding price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 14.1 times and Plus500 carries a bargain-basement ratio of 6.8 times.Before you go…These firms are too cheap, given their bright profits outlook for the short-to-medium term, I believe. And I’d happily buy them for my ISA.While I’m at it, I’d also load up on Vectura Group (LSE: VEC). The healthcare play has also exploded in value of late, up almost 50% over the past month. And yet it still looks very reasonable valued, the share sporting a forward P/E ratio of 17 times.Look, this isn’t cheap on paper. But when you consider the essential nature of its products — Vectura provides a variety of services to help bring inhaled drug products to market — and therefore its brilliant earnings visibility, I consider this to be a pretty small premium.The small-cap noted last month that “no signals of diminished demand for these services have been noted” following the Covid-19 outbreak. I’d happily load this share into my investment portfolio, along with those 6% dividend yields.center_img Enter Your Email Address I’d buy these 6% dividend yields as stock market volatility continues I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Should I buy Trustpilot shares after the IPO? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. One UK stock that’s getting plenty of attention from investors right now is Trustpilot (LSE: TRST). Last week, it listed on the London Stock Exchange via an Initial Public Offering (IPO).Should I buy Trustpilot shares for my own portfolio? Let’s take a look at the investment case.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Trustpilot’s business modelTrustpilot is the owner of trustpilot.com – a consumer website that hosts reviews of businesses worldwide. At the end of 2020, over 529,000 domains had been reviewed on the website, with over 120m reviews by consumers.Trustpilot sees itself as a ‘software-as-a-service’ company (providing software services to companies in return for a regular subscription fee) and operates a ‘freemium‘ business model. This is where businesses get a limited service for free, but can pay for additional services.The subscription offering provides businesses with a range of benefits including access to actionable insights from Trustpilot’s big-data ecosystem and proprietary data analytics software. These services can help businesses raise their profile, build their own trust credentials, and serve their customers more effectively.At the end of 2020, Trustpilot had over 19,500 customers from over 100 countries and territories subscribing for its premium services.What I like about Trustpilot sharesThere are a number of things I like about Trustpilot from an investment perspective. Firstly, the company is easy to understand and its business model is quite straightforward. That’s a plus.Secondly, Trustpilot has registered impressive growth in recent years. For the year ended 31 December 2020, the company recorded revenue of $102m. That compares to revenue of $81.9m and $64.3m in 2019 and 2018 respectively. However, it notes in its prospectus that in future periods, it may not be able to sustain revenue growth at levels consistent with historical periods, or at all. Third, the company should benefit from the continued growth of e-commerce. This is an industry that’s set to get much bigger in the years ahead. This should provide tailwinds for Trustpilot.What I don’t like about Trustpilot sharesHaving said all that, I have some reservations about Trustpilot shares. One is that the company isn’t making money. Last year, it had an operating loss of $9.4m. This is pretty normal for a young, tech start-up but it does add risk. Adjusted EBITDA in 2020 was $6.1m.Another issue is that the stock’s expensive. At the current share price, the company’s market-cap is around £1.1bn. That means the trailing price-to-sales ratio is about 15. That’s relatively high which, again, adds risk.Additionally, I have concerns over barriers to enter in the industry. While I like the fact that Trustpilot has a simple product and business model, this could potentially be a weakness. Is there anything to stop another company such as Alphabet (Google) launching a similar product and stealing market share?Finally, I have some concerns over the company’s reputation. In the past, it’s been criticised for allowing fake reviews to be posted on its website. It’s worth noting that trustpilot.com has 15% bad reviews on its own platform.My viewWeighing everything up, I’m going to keep Trustpilot shares on my watchlist for now. The company looks interesting, but I think there are better growth shares I could buy right now.

The greatest day in Uruguay rugby history

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Why Uruguay’s victory over Fiji at the 2019 World Cup has global significance too The greatest day in Uruguay rugby historyHow do you miss 48 tackles in 80 minutes and still win a Test match against a top-ten team? Ask Uruguay, for that’s exactly what they did against Fiji in their opening game of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.That tackle statistic is quite incredible. The Teros may have made 155 tackles but they missed 48 for a success rate of 76% – hardly the sort of figures that usually lead to a victory. Yet they scrambled effectively on so many occasions when a tackle was missed to bring down Fiji’s dangerous runners – and there were plenty of them!Mad scramble: Filipo Nakosi is halted by two Uruguay defenders (Getty Images)Related: Fiji 27-30 Uruguay Match ReportA quick glance through the statistics without knowing the result would suggest the islanders had run away with this game – 687 metres made, 15 line breaks, 21 ball carries from Leone Nakarawa alone. But pride and passion cannot be measured as easily and that’s exactly what Uruguay delivered.Fiji may have had the individual stars in their line-up, but the power of the collective is what came to the fore for the South Americans and secured only their third World Cup win in history.People will point to the four-day turnaround Fiji had between the Australia and Uruguay matches, as well as their profligacy in possession – they conceded 27 turnovers – and goalkicking inaccuracy, but to highlight Fiji’s flaws is to miss Uruguay’s strengths and does the Teros a disservice.Fiji have inflicted a few World Cup shocks in their time but it was they who got caught out by perhaps underestimating the Uruguayans here.Uruguay are 19th in the world rankings – higher only than Russia (20), Canada (22) and Namibia (23) at this World Cup. Little was expected of them, especially in a pool as competitive as this, although it’s not quite as bad as the one they had in 2015, when they lost all their games to Australia, England, Fiji and Wales.Fitting stage: A lineout during Fiji v Uruguay (Getty Images)Yet the reason we love sport is when people or teams exceed expectations, spring surprises and cause upsets. That’s exactly what we saw from Uruguay – and it was apt that it happened in Kamaishi, the ground built to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. An emotional setting for an emotional win.Related: Rugby World Cup Greatest Shocks And that raw emotion shown at the final whistle, players and coaches in tears, was reminiscent of Uruguay’s first foray into this tournament in 1999, when Diego Ormaechea scored a try – at the age of 40 no less – as he led his country to victory against Spain.It’s somewhat fitting, then, that his two sons – Juan Diego and Agustin – came off the bench to share in another famous win here at Japan 2019.Rugby is a strong tradition in the Ormaechea family and the hope is that a victory such as this can act as a springboard to get more Uruguayans involved in the sport. For so long, they have been the little brother to Argentina in South American rugby but if they can build on this, their greatest day, they can increase their talent pool and become more competitive on the world stage.Show of support: Uruguay fans celebrate a famous victory (Getty Images)Uruguay already have several players involved with Major League Rugby clubs in the USA and there are plans to launch a professional league in South America too. This result will only help raise the profile of the sport and hopefully speed up such developments.Plus, with the youngest squad at this World Cup, there is huge scope for improvement – and more significant victories – over the coming years.“We were looking to shock the world – and we have taken the first step,” said Uruguay captain Juan Manuel Gaminara afterwards. “Now we want the win with Georgia as well as to continue achieving our goals – and that is to win both matches. We are all confident and believe it’s possible. We set out to be leaders. This team did a great job today and will do so again.”While Uruguay play Georgia on Sunday, they should take the time to savour this win. It’s significant not just for them but the global game, proving that there is still scope for shocks in Test rugby.Let’s hope this is the first but not the last upset we see at Japan 2019.

History of Anglicanism in Rwanda preserved in new Kigali archive

first_img Juliette Mukankwiro and Dinah Igiraneza, part of the Kigali archive team, pose in front of some of the material they have sorted and stored. Photo: Jesse Zink[Anglican Communion News Service] A new archive in the Diocese of Kigali is allowing Anglicans the opportunity to learn more about the history of the church in Rwanda.In early 2015, a small group of people began wading through years of old files and papers that were kept in a shipping container near the diocesan offices. The team spent much of their time cleaning and dusting off the paperwork and then bringing it into a special room prepared for this purpose. There, over a period of about nine weeks concentrated work, they sorted the material by subject and time period and filed it in new binders.Juliette Mukankwiro, a parishioner at St Peter’s Church in the Remera neighbourhood of Kigali, coordinated the project. She recalled that “it was exhausting work and mentally tiring. But we felt really satisfied because we were serving the church that we belong to.”By day, Mukankwiro works at the Ministry of Agriculture where an important part of her job is keeping track of records so she was well prepared for this task.The collection – which is in French, Kinyarwanda, and English – is now stored in close to 200 binders, with a small amount of material still unsorted. The material represents a remarkable range of Rwandan ecclesial, social, and political history. It begins with the arrival of Anglican missionaries in Kigali in the 1940s and stretches to the present day. It includes minutes of Mothers’ Union meetings over the decades, correspondence of church leaders with local government officials, parochial reports and statistics of church attendance, reports on the church’s work of reconciliation after the 1994 genocide, and much, much else.Mukankwiro was delighted to find the deed of land in which a local chief granted to Anglican missionaries the land on which her Remera parish church now sits. Dating to 1948, the deed has a hand-drawn map showing the plot of land and the chief’s thumbprint in lieu of a signature. “People have forgotten this history,” she said. “We can now remember these people who helped build our churches.”Because the Diocese of Kigali was once the only diocese in Rwanda, there are documents from around the country. There are also documents related to the life of the former province of Rwanda, Burundi, and Boga-Zaire and its division into three in the early 1990s. Preparatory documents for various Lambeth Conferences are contained in the archive, as is correspondence between Rwandan church leaders and the Anglican Communion Office during periods of painful church conflict before and after the genocide.The project had the support of the diocesan bishop Louis Muvunyi, as well as the support of Kigali’s link diocese, Ely, in the Church of England, which contributed towards the cost of the project. The diocese is currently considering ways to develop the collection further, including how to continue to add new material and make it available to researchers and others.The archive team created a catalogue to the various binders, which details what is in each. A copy of the catalogue is kept in the diocesan office. A separate copy is now also kept at the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide in England.Mukankwiro thinks that the church’s past is important for the church’s life today: “The church in the past had people who had the life of the church at their heart. People today can learn a lot from the faith others used to have.” Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Shreveport, LA Tags Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit an Event Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit a Job Listing Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Director of Music Morristown, NJ Press Release Service Africa, By Jesse ZinkPosted Jun 16, 2016 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Youth Minister Lorton, VA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group 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 Rector Martinsville, VA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Albany, NY center_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Anglican Communion Rector Belleville, IL AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Washington, DC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Is separating asylum-seeking refugees’ children from their parents ethical or a…

first_img Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom I think it is shameful to separate families and put these immigrant children in detainment camps. I think if some of the people advocating for the Trump administration’s hardline policy on the immigrants plight, involving their children, causing them to be separated, if the shoe was on the other foot, and it were themselves and their families, they wouldn’t want to be separated from their children they love. I know it is a huge problem in this country, but the biggest problem of all, is Trump’s unwillingness and arrogance, to consider different solutions, and listen to what resolutions people who study these issues have brought forth, and suggested. He is a very cruel man, IMO. I don’t like him at all. Trump has been receiving praise from the Trump supporters for deporting illegal immigrants, and leaving their children in the wake, but what is not being told is that Obama had been quietly and steadily deporting illegal immigrants on a regular basis, but it was the very hard core, criminally involved “bad apples”….that Obama was trying to rid the country of, the most dangerous, and was not truly gunning for going after the family- oriented hard working ones with kids, who were seeking a better life, and were working hard at doing the many jobs that the average Americans shunned, and didn’t want to do, because the jobs were hard or dirty work. The truth! If Trump gets re-elected, I pray for this country, I really do. He is turning the entire globe against America, and is turning our allies on our neighboring borders, Mexico and Canada, against us. He is not as smart as he thinks he is. He sure bends over backwards to please Putin however! On this issue of the detainment of the immigrant children…..ask yourself, WWJD? Tonight on LET’S TALK ABOUT IT with Rod Love and Greg Jackson, the “Dynamic Duo” discuss the U.S. policy of separating children from their parents when families enter our country seeking asylum. Is this policy warranted or a violation of human rights?Also, now that the Florida Ethics Commission has found probable cause that former Apopka Mayor, Joe Kilsheimer improperly used his official position to secure funds for an organization he secretly ran, Rod and Greg will discuss how deep this potential scandal may be. The to close out the show, there will be an update on the upcoming 3rd Annual Spirit of Florida Gospel Festival taking place in Apopka on October 20, 2018, will be provided.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.

Mama Mia I am replying also of what I just saw on the news, and it is not fake news either, CBS evening news…First Lady Melania Trump decided to go visit a illegal immigrant detainment camp where immigrant children have been held without their parents….okay, sounds good. She spoke and stated she was there to see how she could help. That was respectable, then they showed what outer coat she was wearing, and on the back of her coat, it was written in huge block letters that looked almost painted on, and it stated, ” I don’t care, do u” or something almost like that. Look it up, and view it. How darn tacky, how darn disrespectful. She knows exactly how that message on the back of her coat, would be taken on the visit to the detainment camp. Trump addressed her coat’s message, and said she intended the message for the “fake news media” and all their lies….yeah, right. I actually was beginning to respect Melania, and thought she was intelligent, but my opinion of her has totally changed after this tacky message on the back of her coat, that she donned to “go see how she could help”…….!!! Unbelievable!!! Reply Reply 8 COMMENTS Reply June 18, 2018 at 9:46 pm Good morning James….well, at least Trump has been politically pressured into signing an executive order reversing his administration’s policy of separating illegal immigrant parents and their children at the borders, so I don’t think we have to argue about that issue for now. Since he signed this order, at the urging of people all across our nation, and the rest of the world, Republicans, Democrats, former politicians, and oh, his own daughter, Ivanka, who apparently has some degree of “pull” with her daddy, he signed it. Whether it actually keeps the immigrant families and their kids together is anyone’s guess. If you go back and look at what has been happening since Trump got elected, a pattern has been forming…..the Keystone pipeline protestors, many who were our native American Indians, on their own reservation lands, were protesting because of concerns that the pipeline would contaminate their drinking water supply…Trump wanted to bulldoze over the protestors on the roads, or shoot them on site! He bragged about the way ol’ Sheriff Joe A. of Arizona ran his detainment camps of the illegals picked up, that were held in tent cities out in the smoldering desert, and the horrible abuses that went on in those tents, under Joe’s watch, Trump thought it was great! Some of those people were not criminal illegals, but were profiled and thrown in there, because they looked like they were illegals because of their skin color and appearance. Trump advocated for torture of prisoners of war, and just look at that woman he hired, and her record of torture under her direction for the head of the CIA ( I think it was), he thinks that a certain foreign leader that has hired hit squads to shoot on site, suspected drug users and drug dealers, without the benefit of a fair trial….Trump ADVOCATES FOR THAT! He would have it that way here in the good ol’ USA if he could! Great, he thinks! And now that the nation has risen up against putting these innocent children in detainment camps, without their parents, and alone without family, what does he do in the same timeframe as signing this executive order to end the policy…..???…..he signs OFF an international agreement with 47 other countries that have signed, along with our country, which was an agreement on human rights! Look for the patterns forming here, and without the checks and balances, the oversight that the fellow Republicans can oversee to stop him…and this country is headed for some atrocities from the Trump administration, and I pray someone else will win the next election other than Trump, as he will be the most dangerous, if he gets elected a second term.

Also while I am replying to d, I have to wonder just why that our representatives, our legislators, or lawmakers, have been BANNED from entering the detainment camps here in Florida? Two of our Florida senators tried to go visit the detainment facility, to see for themselves, just what the conditions were here in Florida, at the Homestead facility, and were denied entry! Senator Bill Nelson, and Senator Debbie Wasserman Shultz… sorry, if I spelled her name wrong…. If you, or myself, tried to go see for ourselves, yes, I would understand, being banned from going in, but legislators, senators at that, BANNED, when IT IS THEIR BUSINESS to know just what is going on in these detainment camps, and this one in Homestead has 1000 beds! Do you all think this is right? It seems like a cover- up to me………US citizens need to question this, along with the legislators, and a lawsuit needs to be filed, for this alleged cover- up. Is this the good old USA, or is this Nazi Germany now, under Trump? I also don’t like calling these camps, detention camps, I prefer to call them detainment camps, because the word, “detention” used such as an example in “placing a child in detention” usually, to me, indicates the child has done something wrong, or has been bad, and that is not the case here…..IMO Episode 35From Let’s Talk About It with Rod Love and Greg Jackson June 21, 2018 at 7:01 pm Please enter your comment! Reply Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here What about all the children whose parents broke the law entering the US illegally, you ask…..? That is just the problem, but this zero- tolerance policy, of the Trump administration, is not the best solution! His policy detains innocent kids, in what amounts to jail, is how I have been hearing it….not nice summer camp- like conditions, like American kids go to for fun in the summer, when schools out, at all! More like big CAGES with multiple kids inside each, crying their eyes out, begging for their mommies and daddies, while the border patrol people seem amused. Yes, their parents broke the law, I acknowledge that, as well as other American citizens, but many of these parents were desperate, as the ruthless drug cartels have been forcing many of them to work for them, threaten them, and their kids are $$$$ cash cows for human trafficking, in the sick world of child sex predators…..grow a heart, Trump supporter! It is not the Democrats that came up with this cruel zero- tolerance policy back in April, …it was Trump’s idea, and a stupid one too. He blames the Democrats, to shift the blame for his own dumb actions, but the previous presidential administrations were enforcing the law against the illegals, all along, and deporting them, quietly, but not taking their children away from them, which according to the former head of ICE, can now be permanent, and the children and their parents may never be reunited! Trump is untethered to the truth, so I know who is to blame for this mess! Would you want that to happen to your children, that caused you and your children a separation, for whatever reason, legal or not? Or think back to when you were a small innocent child, and what if that had of been you, not knowing if you would ever see your parents again, and held in these prison- like conditions? What now, are we are going to house permanent camps for all the illegal’s children, thousands of them, at a high cost to the American taxpayers, when this is not necessary, but is only Trump flexing his muscle, to look tough, in the name of punishing their desperate parents, and the children, so Trump can continue on pushing his heartless policies, and brag on his heartlessness? Wow, I am really surprised he doesn’t hire ol’ Sheriff Joe A. of Arizona, that he pardoned, to be over and run the child detainment camps….. And for the record, all the Republicans are NOT fine with Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy! Trump has no idea where this situation is headed, and has not thought it out carefully, before he put this zero-tolerance immigration policy in place in April, but has just reacted, and this is why he is such a pity poor president. Impeachment now!

Jones suggests powerhouse Lions centres to fight fire with fire against gigantic Springboks

first_imgWednesday May 12, 2021 Jones suggests powerhouse Lions centres to fight fire with fire against gigantic Springboks Two-time British and Irish Lions tourist Adam Jones has predicted Warren Gatland will start Robbie Henshaw and Bundee Aki in the centres to “go fire with fire” with South Africa this year.ADVERTISEMENTGatland named his 37-man squad last week to face the world champions this summer, and the midfield has proven to be an area that not only included some surprise inclusions but is up for debate as to who will wear the No.12 and No.13 jerseys.Robbie Henshaw, Bundee Aki, Chris Harris and Elliot Daly were the four centres selected, with Owen Farrell also an option, which means the likes of Jonathan Davies, Garry Ringrose and Manu Tuilagi were not called upon by Gatland and his coaching team.The Harlequins scrum coach Jones expects the Springboks to start either Damian de Allende or Harlequins’ André Esterhuizen, who Jones will know well, at inside centre, and therefore feels the Lions should try and match them physically.WATCH: De Allende shows his class as Munster dominate Leinster“I think they will go Henshaw at No.13 and Bundee Aki No.12,” the 100-cap former tighthead said on the House of Rugby podcast this week alongside Lee McKenzie and Sean O’Brien.“My reasoning behind this is [South Africa] are going to come with an absolutely gigantic inside centre, whether it’s de Allende or maybe André Esterhuizen if he gets picked.“I think [the Lions] will want to go fire for fire with them. So you go Bundee Aki, big lump, hard, gets you over the gain line, which Gats loves.“I just think Aki and Henshaw are going to be the pairing.”ADVERTISEMENTO’Brien also suggested that Gatland may opt for Farrell at inside centre with Henshaw outside him, but expects South Africa to be direct in the first Test to see if the Lions can “stand up to them with that type of challenge”.

The project is located in Mohammad Shahr, on the margin of Tehran with a short distance from it. The residents of Mohammad Shahr are mostly those who work in Tehran but cannot afford a living there because of its expensive apartments (Housing price in Tehran is 6 times higher than Mohammad Shahr). The increasing population of low income people in this region has filled up all the empty lands with low quality buildings. Our project is based on one of these lands.Save this picture!© Hossein FarahaniThe Budget we had for this project was only 170€ per m².In order to reduce costs, we replaced the expensive details with simple and inexpensive ones and we used vernacular material which were from native mines of the region. The white complex of the material of façade fits the hot and dry climate of Mohammad Shahr.In Iranian culture the relationship between neighbors is remarkable which is neglected in modern life. Neighbors used to spend some time together during the day and children used to play in the alley.Save this picture!© Hossein FarahaniHere we designed open, semi- open and closed spaces. We made rooms for children’s playing, for reading, for exercising and a place for neighbors to hang out in order to keep the Iranian neighborhood culture alive.Save this picture!SectionBecause of low price of apartments in Mohammad Shahr, the landlords sell their apartments without any extra equipment. So we tried to improve interior spaces by designing a diverse façade therefore every single unit experiments a different interior space, with no extra charge!Save this picture!© Hossein FarahaniIn the neighborhood, for the sake of security, the walls of the courtyards are high.

Reporters Without Borders protests against restrictions on press coverage of government talks with paramilitaries

first_img News June 17, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders protests against restrictions on press coverage of government talks with paramilitaries RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Reports Organisation Reporters Without Borders voiced concern about the threat to press freedom posed by restrictions on media coverage of talks between the government and leaders of the AUC paramilitary forces, that open on 1 July in Tierralta, in north-western Cordoba region. RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Receive email alerts “While accepting the need for journalists travelling to the area to be accredited, the deadline that has been set is at best pointless and at worst a danger for press freedom,” it said.””We therefore ask you to do away with the time limit for accreditation,” the organisation asked the High Commissioner. “Your desire not to turn the negotiations into a ‘show’ should not lead you to infringe press freedom,” it concluded.In a statement put out by the press service of the High Commissioner for Peace on 15 June 2004, media were told that they had until 18 June to put in requests for accreditation, in which they must name the journalists they intended sending to Tierralta. It added that accreditation had to be collected at the press service itself in the capital and only on 24 and 25 June. It stressed that media failing to comply with the procedure “would not enter the area in question”.Contacted by Reporters Without Borders, the press service said that there was room for flexibility. A request that arrived on 15 July would be looked at and would not immediately be rejected. A media should also succeed in accrediting a second journalist to replace a first one.Questioned about the reasons for a three-day deadline, the press service explained, “In Colombia people always wait until the last moment to do anything, so we had to fix a deadline.”Restrepo said on 16 May that the peace talks process would be disciplined and there would be no media circus, in reference to negotiations held in 1998-2002 by President Andrés Pastrana with the FARC guerrillas in an area to which there was, at the start, uncontrolled access. October 21, 2020 Find out more ColombiaAmericas to go further In a letter sent to the High Commissioner for Peace, Reporters Without Borders has protested that a three-day deadline for journalists to seek accreditation to cover peace talks will particularly penalise foreign correspondents who will only fall foul of the restrictions once negotiations have started. “The three-day deadline for journalists to seek accreditation, starting from 15 June, for talks expected to last six months is excessively short,” said the international press freedom organisation.”It will particularly penalise foreign press correspondents who will only find out about the restrictions after the talks have started,” it said in a letter to High Commissioner for Peace Luis Carlos Restrepo.”Forcing the press to get accreditation in Bogota will also be likely to disadvantage provincial publications who want to cover the event but do not have representatives in the capital, the organisation added.
