LV Cup semi-finals preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Gloucester will look to make it 10 wins on the bounce in all competitions when they take on Newport Gwent Dragons in the semi- final of the LV= Cup at Kingsholm on Sunday. Bryan Redpath’s side produced one of their best performances of the season against Bath last week, winning 34-22 to consolidate their place in the Premiership’s top three. And they are now just one game away from reaching the final of the Anglo- Welsh competition for the second year running.Gloucester lost out to Northampton in a thrilling showpiece at Sixways Stadium last year, and will hope to go one better 12 months on. But first they will have to overcome a Dragons side that beat them 18-12 at Rodney Parade in the first game of the pool stages back in November. Wales’ sole representatives in the last four go into Sunday’s game bidding to make their first final in a major competition. Friday evening’s semi- final is an all- English affair involving Harlequins and Newcastle Falcons.The two sides met only last week in the Aviva Premiership, the Falcons turning in a superb second- half performance to win 33-18. The success came just five days after the Falcons had clinically dispatched relegation rivals Leeds Carnegie at Headingley and Newcastle will travel south in good spirits. However the Londoners have beaten Newcastle twice at home already this season, winning 23-12 in the Premiership on October 2nd and, six weeks later, by 28-20 in the pool stages of the LV= Cup.last_img read more

Rugby Championship could be at the end of the year as Australian rugby hiatus gets set to extend

first_imgWednesday Apr 15, 2020 Rugby Championship could be at the end of the year as Australian rugby hiatus gets set to extend Rugby Australia is set to indefinitely extend their suspension of professional competitions beyond May 1, but has already drawn up several models for rescheduled domestic and Test competitions.ADVERTISEMENTThere were no talks on Wednesday between RA and the Rugby Union Players Association over an interim pay deal, but the national body continues to plan for the resumption of the game.A proposed domestic competition to replace the suspended Super Rugby tournament was scheduled to start on April 3, but was deferred to May 1, as the coronavirus pandemic continues.“We are aware that (May 1) will most likely be moved out,” RA general manager of professional rugby services Ben Whitaker told AAP.There are five and six team models for the competition to replace Super Rugby in Australia, with the Western Force and Japan’s Sunwolves potentially joining the four existing local franchises.“Based on where we’re heading the Sunwolves will need to be based in Australia,” Whitaker said.“Those discussions continue and we’ve been talking to the Western Force about them joining to create a five or six team competition.”ADVERTISEMENTThe three home Tests in June, two against Ireland and one with Fiji, look likely to be postponed, but there was a slight chance they could be rescheduled.With northern hemisphere nations yet to decide when, or even if, their club and provincial season’s will resume, that adds another layer of complexity to firming up the Test calendar.“It becomes difficult although there are ongoing discussions led by SANZAAR at the moment to talk about July and whatever options exist,” Whitaker said.He added SANZAAR may have to look at playing Rugby Championship matches in November and early December if the pandemic didn’t allow the tournament to start on time in August.ADVERTISEMENTWhitaker wouldn’t rule out the Wallabies’ three-match spring tour of Europe in November being sacrificed if the Rugby Championship wasn’t completed by then.Rugby Championship options include a truncated competition of just one round, as happens in a World Cup year, or shifting all the Tests to one country.“It’s a sort of worst case scenario,” Whitaker admitted.“But if that was one way of getting rugby going in this country in an environment that’s also safe for the community … that’s a model we have drafted up.”RELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The Institute of Fundraising and THINK Consulting Solutions have created a free online diagnostic tool designed to help charities to understand the impact of the recession on their income portfolios over the coming years.The ‘Fundraising Healthcheck’ has been created in recognition of the fact that charities need strategic fundraising advice and support to help them continue functioning effectively amid the recession. The diagnostic tool is suitable for charities of all sizes that wish to check the viability of their fundraising, anonymously and confidentially.It offers two analysis routes. The Net Income Report scrutinises a charity’s fundraising profitability across a mix of channels to determine the most profitable income streams and donor groups, and areas needing focus.The second route, an Investment Report, assesses the mix and risk of a charity’s investment portfolio, looking at recruitment and donor development across techniques and channels to ensure strategic risk management.Although the participant is asked to register an email address, the identity of the charity can remain anonymous if they do not wish to use a work email address. The name of the charity is not requested during the analysis.Neither the Institute of Fundraising nor THINK Consulting Solutions will store, nor have access, to any fundraising details submitted. No information is saved and participants will be advised to print their bespoke report before exiting the site.Lindsay Boswell, chief executive of the Institute of Fundraising, said: “In launching Fundraising Healthcheck we are recognising and responding to the need of fundraisers to present a clear case to their trustee boards and CEOs for continued and vital investment in diverse fundraising strategies.“It would be easy for the Institute to write to our members to encourage them to continue trying to convince their boards, but we wanted to do more. Fundraising Healthcheck is a powerful tool that can give fundraisers something tangible to help guide and support their strategies”.He added that he believed that the Fundraising Healthcheck would be particularly useful to small to medium-sized charities “that do not have a corporate business infrastructure or previous recession experience to draw from, nor the funds to seek professional consulting advice.”Tony Elischer, managing director of THINK Consulting Solutions, said: “We have pooled our consultants’ experience, expertise and time into the biggest pro bono project we have ever undertaken. I firmly believe it is the responsibility of organisations such as ours to rally and go the extra mile to offer support and original thinking.“We want charities to be able to see clearly and understand the impact the recession may have on their organisations and with the help of expert advice, to be able to come to their own conclusions when planning their course through the recession and out the other side.”The site will be updated, with new features and tools being added, and users will be invited by email to resubmit data at future dates.Currently Fundraising Healthcheck is available exclusively to members of the Institute of Fundraising through the members-only area of the organisation’s website.From the end of March 2009 it will be available to the sector at large atwww.fundraisinghealthcheck.org Howard Lake | 10 March 2009 | Newslast_img read more

Research Shows Antibiotic Concerns Unnecessary

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Aug 18, 2013 Research Shows Antibiotic Concerns Unnecessary Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img Due to recent hype surrounding meat raised without antibiotics – Iowa State University’s authority on antibiotics in food production took a look at data to back up his own claims that it’s all antibiotic free. Dr. Scott Hurd says there’s not much difference between conventionally raised animals and antibiotic-free production when it comes to residues in meat. In fact – Hurd says because farmers follow appropriate withdrawal times – there are very few violations. In the last three years of USDA testing – he finds no broiler chickens have been found with violative residues for the scheduled sampling; only two out of 16-hundred were found in beef and for market hogs there were only three out of 22-hundred samples. The bottom line is – the residue detection levels in beef cattle, market hogs and broilers reveal residue levels that are extremely small and well below the levels that would cause adverse effects to a human eating the meat. Hurd notes an animal that tests positive for residues does not enter the food supply – but adds that antibiotics are not toxins. He says they are useful and safe products used by everyone.Source: NAFB New Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Research Shows Antibiotic Concerns Unnecessary Previous articleFor Consumers, Seeing is BelievingNext articleMiss Pulaski County wins Indiana State Fair Queen Pageant Gary Truittlast_img read more

Trial of MBC producers on defamation charges is “act of revenge”

first_img August 18, 2020 Find out more On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia RSF_en News Receive email alerts Follow the news on South Korea Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate withdrawal of defamation charges against four producers and a writer – Neung Hee Cho, Il Jun Song, Bo Seul Kim, Choon Keun Lee and Eun Hee Kim – who were employed in 2008 by the Seoul-based TV station MBC’s investigative programme PD Notebook. Their trial began in Seoul today.The charges are the result of a March complaint by the former agriculture minister and senior government officials over an April 2008 programme about the possibility of catching mad cow disease from imported American beef. MBC issued a formal apology after the broadcast, acknowledging that it contained translation errors.“It is unacceptable that this trial should take place,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the Seoul prosecutor’s office to drop the charges against these journalists, who are the victims of an act of revenge for doing a programme about US beef. We also urge the judge to quickly clear them. It is outrageous that prison sentences can be envisaged for mere translation errors. If the journalists are convicted, it will set a dangerous precedent for South Korean democracy.”After the initial hearing on 9 September, to be headed by judge Moon Sung Guan, five other hearings have been scheduled. After the last of these, on 3 February 2010, the court will have a couple of months to reach a verdict. The defendants are facing the possibility of five-year jail sentences.The MBC production team was formally indicted on 18 June for alleging defaming two former senior government officials, Jung Woon Chun and Min Dong Suk, and “obstructing the commercial activities of certain US beef import companies by disseminating false information.” Some of the accused were detained for 48 hours, during which time they insisted on their right to remain silent.Three months prior to that, on 25 March, one of the programme’s producers, Choon-Keun Lee, was arrested at night and forcibly escorted to the office of the Seoul public prosecutor for questioning about the programme, which had prompted a wave of protests in South Korea when it was broadcast (see article). Five other MBC employees were detained.A Reporters Without Borders representative went to MBC headquarters in March to express the organisation’s solidarity with the station’s journalists, some of whom had not left the premises for several months for fear of being arrested.One of the journalists recently told Reporters Without Borders that he was in the process of gathering evidence of his innocence with the help of his colleagues and his lawyer.
