Portugal’s Pride

first_imgSaturday Sep 15, 2007 Portugal’s Pride With the Pool C encounter between David and Goliath about to kick off, I’m trying to make a prediction. Will the All Blacks score 80 points against Portugal, 100, or perhaps even 120?This is the unfortunate reality when a team making it’s debut at the World Cup comes up against a side that has a rich rugby heritage and is commonly known to be the best side in the world, and probably favourites to win the tournament.Does it matter what the score is today? No. What matters, is that a minnow of the world game is getting a chance to take the field against living legends, and on the world stage in front of a global audience of millions.Portugal will today go into the toughest battle of their lives, but believe me, they’ll be loving every minute of it.They are a developing rugby nation that, along with a few other sides in the tournament, are made up of amateur players. Every country needs to be given a chance, and unless they’re given that chance, there will forever be only four or five sides in the world that stand a chance of winning the trophy.And what would be better than having sides like Portugal, USA, Fiji, and Georgia (to name a few), being able to compete with the best.It would challenge a few supporters egos, and some people will disagree with me, but it certainly is for the good of the game. Spread the game as far and wide as possible, and make rugby the number one sport in the world.And as you can see by the passion shown in Portugal’s first ever World Cup singing of their national anthem, it means the world to them, which at the end of the day is one of the most important parts of what rugby is all about – pride for your country.

A custom brake in the cladding design provides a vertical texture and emphasizes the contrasting way the modules sit atop the horizontally banded, board-formed concrete plinths. Weathering steel was also used for the railings inside the porch. All steel on the concrete plinths is galvanized steel.

Pic Sean Curtin True Media.THE future of the Mid-West region is autonomous and artificial!That’s according to the Mid-West Action Plan for Jobs Implementation Committee whose vision for the future development of the region is based on a strong collaborative ecosystem that’s at the cutting edge of new technologies.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Órlaith Borthwick, who is programme manager for the Mid-West Action Plan for Jobs, points to the fact that the region is leading the way in a number of emerging disruptive technologies including the autonomous vehicle – through the presence of global leaders such as Jaguar LandRover, Analog Devices, DELL, Intel and General Motors.“While artificial intelligence will impact on all businesses in every sector, our regional opportunity is to ensure that we remain at the forefront in delivering innovations and talent in these growth areas,” she explained.Stating that companies either innovate or evaporate, Minister of State for Trade and Employment Pat Breen told a recent meeting of the Jobs Implementation Committee that regional economies need to adopt the same philosophy to ensure their economic longevity.Praising the levels of collaboration taking place across the public and private sectors in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary Minister Breen said: “The employment creation record of the Mid-West in recent years is a leading example to regions across the country in how public and private stakeholders can work collaboratively to deliver impactful change.“Since the launch of the Mid-West Action Plan for Jobs, under the chairmanship of Barry O’Sullivan an additional 16,600 are in employment; in the first half of 2017 alone over 7,000 extra people were at work.”“I was delighted to learn greater insights into what is working in the region, including recent successes in emerging growth sectors including the BioEconomy Foundation and Emerald Aero Cluster, both recently funded under the first round of the Enterprise Ireland Regional Enterprise Development Fund” he explained.Launched in 2015, the Regional Action Plans for Jobs were recently subject to a ‘Refresh and Refocus’ by Minister Heather Humphreys who reiterated the government’s commitment to regional economic growth opportunities.Commenting on the meeting with Minister Breen, Ms Borthwick said: “we are delighted that Minister Breen could join us to hear from our local authorities, our indigenous business base, our multinational industries, our higher education institutions and several others about our future vision for this region.“The Mid-West Action Plan for Jobs has provided to framework to facilitate collaboration and cooperation; allowing a collective vision and set of strategic objectives to differentiate and lead the region into future growth.

The rulers branded persons as criminals. And then there were slaves. The chosen few from this brood were brought into huge stadiums called Roman circuses, and were made to fight other gladiators or wild beasts. These were fights unto death witnessed by thousands. The audience would egg on till the person is mauled to their gory death by man or beast. That this entertainment survived for 7 centuries, is a testimony of the political purpose it served, of keeping the populace entertained and distracted with brutal violence. In a sense, the present-day television has replaced the cruel morbidity of the Roman circus. The TV anchors of today, in the absence of any deterrence, can brand any citizen, a criminal or a depraved mortal and try them on their media platform. These victims are branded and instantly stigmatized as criminals, drug users, rapists, murderers according to the convenient choice of the anchors. It is indeed strange that under the Constitution which guarantees life and liberty and a fair trial, these victims of media trial have no escape nor redress. The unfortunate part is that not only the stigma of unproved crime tagged onto the victim, but their right to a fair trial is drowned in an atmosphere of public hysteria. The media which airs this one-sided viewpoint is under no obligation to hear the other side. They as a matter of course bring in the lynch mob into their TV stations and outshout whatever little voice of reason emanates through this odious din. Do these victims have a right to be heard? What is happening here appears grotesque by any standard. The manner in which a movie actress was branded, lynched and molested by the media almost gave away the society’s desire to violate the woman’s liberty and her right to a fair trial. In the United Kingdom strict Contempt of Court Regulations restricts the media’s reporting of legal proceedings after arrest and prevent prejudice to the accused persons. These rules are so designed that the accused receives a fair trial in front of a jury and prevent taint by media coverage. The newspapers like Daily Mirror and the Sun have been prosecuted under these regulations time and time again. That is a society which values human liberties. In the din and cacophony of the gladiatorial television trials, one judgment has been forgotten, that of Life Insurance Corporation of India v. Prof Manubhai Shah (1992) 3 SCC 637. Professor Manubhai Shah was the Trustee of the Consumer Education and Research Centre (hereafter CERC), Ahmedabad. In June 1978, he published an independent full-fledged study entitled “A Fraud on Policyholders—A Shocking Story”. The subject of the study was the the discriminatory practices and the working of the Life Insurance Corporation which adversely affect a large number of policy-holders. An official of the LIC published a reply to the article in LIC’s in-house magazine ‘Yogakshema’. Manubhai Shah sent in his rejoinder and sought publication of it in the Yogakshema. LIC refused to publish it. Manubhai Shah filed a Writ Petition in the Gujarat High Court praying to the Court to issue a writ of mandamus directing the Life Insurance Corporation of India to publish, in its monthly magazine Yogakshema. His arguments found favour with the High Court. LIC appealed and in a path breaking judgment the Supreme Court also found merit in Manubhai Shah’s argument. It held: “the respondents fundamental right of speech and expression clearly entitled him to insist that his views on the subject to reach those who read the magazine so that they have a complete picture before them and not a one-sided or distorted one” And went on to hold: “.. the right extends to the citizens being permitted to use the media to answer the media criticism leveled against the views propagated by him”. Of course, the basis of the decision was the fact that LIC was state and had to act fairly in accordance with article 14 of the Constitution. But what about those media channels who have complete power to violate those rights of an individual which even a state or its instrumentality is not allowed to do?Views are personal.(Author is a Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India)Next Storylast_img read more

California engineer arrested on charges of attempting to poison colleague with ‘toxic amount of cadmium’: Police

first_imgGoogle Maps(OAKLAND, Calif.) — A Northern California chemical engineer was arrested on attempted murder charges after he was caught on surveillance footage allegedly spiking a colleague’s water bottle with “toxic amounts of cadmium,” authorities said.David Xu, 32, was arraigned on Tuesday afternoon in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland, California.Xu was arrested on Thursday following an investigation that showed he had allegedly been trying to poison a female colleague for more than a year, according to an arrest warrant obtained by ABC News.In addition to one count of willful, deliberate, premeditated attempted murder, Xu was charged with felony poisoning and inflicting great bodily injury.“As you all know, he’s presumed innocent,” Xu’s attorney, Julia Jayne, told reporters following Tuesday’s court hearing. “These are allegations, only allegations. Charges have been filed.”Authorities said Xu and the victim, who court papers identified as Rong Yuan, work at Berkeley Engineering and Research in Berkeley, California. Officials at the company declined to comment when contacted by ABC News.“That’s insane, can’t imagine anyone trying to poison anyone,” Morgan Davis, Xu’s neighbor in the Bay Area town of Lafayette, told ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco.Yuan told investigators that she noticed a “strange taste and smell from her water and food” that she had left unattended in her office, according to court documents. She became sick last year and grew suspicious when two relatives who drank from her water bottle also fell ill, according to the court documents.Investigators combed through security video at Berkeley Engineering and Research and spotted Xu allegedly pouring a substance into his colleague’s water bottle on Feb. 11 and again on March 4, authorities allege in court documents.Water samples from the victim’s water bottle tested positive for cadmium, which is often found in rechargeable batteries, according to the court documents.Yuan is still recovering from the attempted poisoning, according to the court records. She declined to comment when reached by KGO-TV.Investigators have not commented on a motive in the case.On his LinkedIn page, Xu claims he had served as an engineering expert witness and consultant in materials and chemicals.The case comes about a year after a 57-year-old man was arrested in the deaths of 21 co-workers at a valve manufacturing plant in Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany. The suspect, identified only as Klaus O. under German privacy laws, was convicted last month and sentenced to life in prison for killing his colleagues by spiking their sandwiches with high levels of cadmium and mercury, authorities said.German authorities said the suspect was caught after managers at the plant installed a surveillance camera in the lunch break room and recorded Klaus O. spiking his colleague’s lunches.
