NATIONWIDE LEAGUE SUPER 8A free kick goal by Steven Anyanwu within two minutes of added time in the second half was all AS Racine needed to condemn Enyimba Feeders to a 1-0 defeat and to qualify for the semi- finals of the on-going Bet9ja Nationwide League Super 8 Tournament at the Agege Township Stadium in Lagos.Prior to the goal, both teams created several chances in front of goal, but could not find the back of the net. AS Racine were dominant through Olafimihan Gafar and Olawale Mutiu, who initiated attack after attack, but Andrew Azubuike and Chukwudi Nwagwu in the central defence of Enyimba Feeders, and goalkeeper Kelvin Ogunga, thwarted their efforts. Enyimba Feeders resulted to using quick counter attacks that rattled the defence of AS Racine, but Adeyemi Taiwo, the goalkeeper of the Agege-based team was equal to the task.As the clock continued to tick towards a barren draw, the referee awarded a free kick to AS Racine on the Feeders’ left side of the box and the resultant kick was beautifully curled into the net by substitute Anyanwu.The goal sent fans at the stadium into wild jubilation and great excitement filled the atmosphere as majority of the fans clamoured for AS Racine victory.A smiling Agali told thenff.com: “It was a good game of football. Enyimba Feeders are not a bad side but I am happy that we won.”On his part, Feeders’ tactician Lawrence Ukaegbu said: “Such is football. It was a game I believe we would have won. The players are very sad to have lost the game in added time.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

DES MOINES — Late this afternoon, the state’s top election official will ask the Iowa Legislative Council for permission to mail absentee ballot request forms to every active Iowa voter.Secretary of State Paul Pate mailed the forms to voters before the June Primary, encouraging Iowans to vote-from-home during the pandemic rather than risk their health standing in line at a polling place. There was record participation in the primary and about 80 percent voted early.Ten days later, the Republican-led legislature voted to force Pate to seek approval from the Legislative Council if he planned a similar mailing in the future. Pate, in a document for the Council’s meeting today, said he’d use federal “Help America Vote” money to cover the cost of the mailing.Some county auditors have said they intend to mail absentee ballot request forms, with some of the information on the form filled in for the voter. Pate is asking the Legislative Council to prevent auditors from doing that and require only blank forms be mailed from county auditors to voters. A new state law about how county auditors may confirm and correct information on the forms they receive is being challenged in court.
England Golf has announced that it will be running another two County Rules Schools this spring, at venues in Cheshire and Devon. Following the success of seven County Rules Schools in 2011, which proved to be very popular attracting over 200 delegates, England Golf are delighted to be offering the chance for more people to participate in rules education. To date, 67 of those delegates who sat the County Rules exam last year achieved a distinction. This in turn has provided their respective County Unions with a potential new source of qualified ‘County Referees’ to assist at county tournaments. Barry Morgan, Secretary of Hampshire County Golf Union, who hosted a Rules School at Basingstoke golf club last year said, “The England Golf County Rules School has proved to be an invaluable tool, enabling Hampshire Golf Union to formulate the nucleus of a tournament panel for our County events. Those that attended are now much more confident in their knowledge of the rules and the school has given them the confidence and self belief to be able to deal with rules situations on and off the golf course”. Toby Thorne, England Golf Deputy Championship Manager says, “The schools cater for all levels of rules knowledge, endorsed by the wide variety of delegates who have attended and the feedback that we have received. There is something for everyone to learn about the rules of golf and with the new changes coming into effect from 1st January it will be important to ensure all delegates are aware of and well informed about these changes. The format of the School, with a mix of outdoor practical demonstrations, refereeing role-play scenarios and some indoor tutorials, keeps everyone interested and on their toes throughout the day”. Delegates should have at least a basic understanding of the Rules of Golf before attending the school, although advice will be given on how to prepare for the exam which is several weeks after the first day of practical tuition. The following dates and venues are finalised for spring 2012: Cheshire: Day 1: Wed 28th March Day 2 (inc. Exam): Thu 3rd May (North) Entry deadline: Fri 9th March Venue: Sandiway Golf Club, Northwich Devon: Day 1: Thu 26th April Day 2 (inc. Exam): Thu 7th June (South West) Entry deadline: Fri 30th March Venue: Exeter Golf & Country Club, Exeter The fee for attending an England Golf County Rules School is £50, which includes all tuition, lunches, teas and coffees on both days. Although hosted in a particular county, delegates from other counties will also be made welcome. Further Schools are being scheduled for Autumn 2012 and will be announced in due course.

The consistent popular support for intelligent design and old-fashioned Biblical creationism is not making hard-core Darwinists any more interested in negotiating or debating. Quite the contrary; as the following stories show, their opposition borders on mania and tyranny.Toad in the hole: A blog named Toad in the Hole expresses some of the fervor of certain Darwinists who cannot tolerate the thought of intelligent design in a scientific context. They are on a campaign to pressure libraries to move copies of Darwin’s Nemesis (an anthology by ID leaders about Phillip Johnson) from the life science section to the religion section. Canadian intolerance: For some Darwinists, it’s not enough to force creation and ID out of the public school science classrooms. The Quebec National Post reported, “The Quebec Ministry of Education has told unlicensed Christian evangelical schools that they must teach Darwin’s theory of evolution and sex education or close their doors….” Read what Evolution News said about this “winter chill” in Quebec.Dawkins Talkin’: Richard Dawkins, on a book tour with The God Delusion, is making the rounds to combat religion. The science journals are mostly praising the book, if not the intensity of his rhetoric. The famous atheist and scientific rationalist has been also facing some stiff opposition, however; see Resurgence link to a YouTube clip (funny), and listen to this MP3 excerpt of debater David Quinn giving him a run for his money. Terry Eagleton, English professor at U of Manchester (and no fundamentalist) was quite incensed at Dawkins and said so on the London Review of Books. In addition, eminent philosopher Thomas Nagel (NYU School of Law) gave him bad press on National Review recently (see ID the Future). At an appearance at a local bookstore in Washington D.C., a visitor asked Dawkins whether it was consistent for him to believe in determinism and then take credit for writing his book. Access Research Network tells how Dawkins hemmed and hawed, and then conceded he had to live as if determinism is false, and society must treat people as if they are responsible for their actions. He admitted “it is an inconsistency that we sort of have to live with otherwise life would be intolerable.” Evolution News has links to more stories about how “everyone’s talkin’ about Dawkins’ crusade against religion.” There’s more Dawkins Talk on William Dembski’s blog Uncommon Descent (Oct 25-26) and on Post-Darwinist.This means war: When a British ID-friendly group named Truth in Science decided to give out free copies of the film Unlocking the Mystery of Life to secondary schools throughout the UK, some in the media went ballistic. Evolution News described the “unsupported assertions, editorializing in a manner that even some of the most agenda-driven reporting in the US has yet to do.”Detective mystery: Who is the “British Centre for Science Education”? David Anderson of Derbyshire decided to investigate. He found some surprising clues about this organization which emerged to condemn the Truth in Science campaign, and reported his findings on his blog BCSE Revealed; it reads like a detective mystery.The Polish front: The deputy education minister of Poland, a member of the conservative League of Polish Families (LPR) that entered the ruling coalition in May, got vocal with anti-Darwin statements recently: “The theory of evolution is a lie” and “It is an error we have legalized as a common truth.” Immediately, the scientific establishment mobilized to fight this “catastrophe.” Nature 10/26 reported that “Members of the Polish Academy of Sciences protested against the LPR campaign in an open letter that was published in several Polish newspapers,” hoping that “the quick response will avert damage to Polish science and education.” Some were worried that “People could easily get the impression that there is a controversy about evolution among scientists.” Included in the report are charges that the LPR is “ultra-right-wing” (see loaded words) and that the deputy education minister has “openly homophobic, anti-Semitic and nationalistic opinions” and “is also known to favour creationist views” (see association). It quoted one signer of the letter that said, “However, the point that really requires further discussion is not evolution, but how a minister can say such stupid things” (see ridicule). Another researcher was “shocked” by the anti-Darwinist statements, saying, “We really did not expect a creationist movement to emerge in Poland.” (Nature 443, 890-891(26 October 2006) | doi:10.1038/443890c).Keep on schmucking: The same issue of Nature contains three favorable book reviews of anti-creationist books: (1) a mostly-favorable review by Lawrence M. Krauss of Dawkins” book The God Delusion, (2) a friendly review by Brian Charlesworth of Sean B. Carroll’s new book The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution, and (3) a positive review by Paul Bloom and Izzat Jarudi of Marc D. Hauser’s book Moral Minds: How Nature Designed Our Universal Sense of Right and Wrong which presents “A view of morality as the product of an innate mental faculty – rather like language.” When creationism or intelligent design is mentioned at all in these reviews, it is only to dismiss it briefly; Charlesworth, for instance, says “A favourite ploy of creationists is to accept the possibility of small-scale evolutionary change by darwinian means, but to deny that this has any relevance to the evolution of complex structures or new species.” A large cartoon in Krauss’s review shows a man with a sandwich board proclaiming, “Renounce God and be saved.”Remote slander takes no guts: Columnist Mike Adams in his Oct 30 entry on TownHall.com describes how he had to give a speech to a hostile audience at the University of Minnesota. Before he even arrived, he had been lambasted by P.Z. Myers, associate professor of biology at UMM and author of the anti-creationist blog Pharyngula (07/06/2006, 11/21/2005). How had Myers described Adams? For starters, “Horowitzian shill, anti-feminist, creationist clown, homophobic bigot, warrior for free speech, professional racist, gun kook, academic-by-accident, beauty contest judge, and just generally contemptible far, far right-wing nutcase.”1 Adams told how Myers, though vicious in his attacks online, did not have the courage to ask any questions in person. After the talk, which went smoothly without incident, Myers continued his web attacks afterwards, including telling lies that were refuted by the videotape.Journalist Denyse O’Leary takes all this in stride on her blog Post-Darwinist. She says this proves that the media and the Darwinists themselves are ID’s best friends. Such outbursts only makes her job as a reporter on ID issues easier. A much calmer analysis was given by philosophy professor Douglas Groothuis [Denver Seminary] in The Denver Post 10/29. Groothuis compared the arguments given by opposite sides in two recent books by ID advocate Jonathan Wells and skeptic Michael Shermer; “Wells’ case is arguably the more thorough, respectful and thought-provoking of the two,” he said, claiming that Shermer’s case depended less on scientific evidence than psychological and theological claims and excluding design by definition. “In informal logic, this is known as the fallacy of begging the question,” Groothuis explained: “What should be proved is instead presumed.” Shermer also resorted to emotional attacks, such as making an abrupt assertion, “Creation by intelligent design is absurd.” To Groothuis, “This premature editorializing sets a sharp tone for the rest of the book.”1Mike Adams’ actual views on such things are freely available on TownHall.com; Adams, PhD in sociology, was formerly an atheist, but is now a well-known Christian conservative and critic of left-wing academic politics; he is on the faculty of U of North Carolina at Wilmington. It should be noted that Adams is a master of sarcasm and satire, so quotes on issues must not be taken out of context.The intensity of anti-creationist rhetoric exceeds all bounds of reason. One cannot imagine these same people being as angry at the Taliban or child molesters as they are against a lot of innocent people who simply feel that whenever Darwinism is taught, students should have the right to know the problems also, and that evidence for design deserves to be discussed. Remember: first they ignore you, then they fight you, then they become hysterical, then they collapse from brain short-circuits, then you win. With reaction #3 right on cue, the ID Movement has a bright future.(Visited 18 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Global travel group Flight Centre faces stiff fines after Australia’s competition regulator won a High Court appeal over allegations of price fixing involving three international airlines.The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission took action against Flight Centre in 2012, alleging that it attempted to induce Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and Emirates to enter price fixing arrangments on six occasions between 2005 and 2009.The airlines had been offering cheaper fares than Flight Centre’s, which had a “Price Beat Guarantee’’ that forced it to beat fares by $1 and offer a $20 voucher.According to the High Court judgment, Flight Centre sent a series of emails to the three airlines between 2005 and 2009 in an attempt to get each airline to stop offering international airline tickets directly to customers at prices lower than those published to travel agents.It went as far as threatening to stop selling the tickets of each airline if that airline did not agree,The Federal Court fined the travel group $A11m in 2013 after finding it had attempted to induce “anti-competitive arrangements or understandings” with the airlines to prevent them from offering international online fares on their websites which undercut the fares on the Flight centre website.However, flight centre appealed the decision and it was overturned by the Full Federal Court which found there was no separate market for booking and distributing airline services and that Flight Centre did not compete with the carriers.The ACCC took the case to the High Court and a judgment delivered Wednesday allowed the appeal. The majority opinion was that Flight Centre was in competition with each airline, despite the fact it was also acting as their agents, and its actions contravened the Trade Practices Act.Each side will bear their own costs because not all of the ACCCs arguments were accepted by the court but the case will return to the federal Court to decide penalties.”The ACCC pursued this matter because we were concerned that Flight Centre’s conduct in this case affected the competitive process,” ACCC chairman Rod Sims said in a statement. “At the core of the matter is the question of whether Flight Centre and the airlines are legally considered competitors.“The ACCC has always maintained that they are in competition with one another to sell flights to consumers.”Sims said the decision would provide important guidance for the future application of Australian competition laws where competing offers were made directly to consumers by both agents and their principal.Flight Centre managing director Graham Turner said the company was pleased the long-running saga had been resolved and respected the Court’s decision. However, he was disappointed it had reached this point.”Flight Centre has sought to deliver cheaper airfares to the travelling public for more than 30 years and is not in the business of attempting to make airfares more expensive,” he said.”As an agent that provides considerable advice and help to the travelling public and extensive marketing for airlines, FLT asks for appropriate commissions from suppliers and also reasonable access to all deals that they release to the market.”This is a logical and natural business request for an agent to make to ensure the customers it serves on behalf of airlines are not disadvantaged.”
Learn the origin of the term cinéma vérité, the vérité tradition, and tips for creating your own cinéma vérité documentary projects.In the world of filmmaking, there’s perhaps no nobler style of film than the documentary. But, within the many sub-genres of documentary, the most pure and noble is perhaps the cinéma vérité style.There are some differences of opinion on what true “cinéma vérité” means. However, the style itself is unique and — when done properly — it’s one of the truest forms of filmmaking.Here’s how to harness the cinéma vérité style for your documentary projects.What Is Cinéma Vérité?French filmmaker Jean Rouch is attributed as one of the originators of cinéma vérité. (Image via Lusouser.)The origins of the term come from the French filmmaker Jean Rouch. He was one of the first filmmakers associated with the term, which translates to “truthful cinema.” Its roots trace back to the earliest days of filmmaking and cinematography, when the principles of documentary filmmaking were first becoming defined.Cinéma vérité is also called observational cinema or direct cinema (more on those terms below). Some of the earliest filmmakers working in the style were Robert Drew, Richard Leacock, D.A. Pennebaker, and the aforementioned Jean Rouch. Each began defining their own rules and styles for “true” documentary filmmaking in the 1960s.Observational Cinema or Direct CinemaFrom a modern filmmaking perspective, it’s important to understand the distinctions between the terms and individual movements and styles in regards to film history. However, outside of academia, the cinéma vérité term is often a catchall for pure vérité, observational cinema, and direct cinema styles when talking about documentary projects.From vérité films like Primary (1960), Dont Look Back (1967, filmed 1965), Grey Gardens (1975), through The War Room (1993), the vérité style evolved as many of the associated filmmakers refined their techniques and developed their own vérité-inspired methods.No Voice-Over or SubtitlesDocumentary filmmaking is meant for the viewer to reach their own conclusions about the “truth.” (Image via The War Room.)One of the early rules of cinéma vérité styles — like direct and observational cinema — was to remove any of the newsreel-style voiceover or title cards and subtitles from their documentary projects. The vérité style developed in direct opposition to contemporaneous war reporting and television news styles. Both war reporting and television news promoted quick facts and sensationalism over letting audiences actually see, hear, and experience events so they could come to their own conclusions.In modern documentary filmmaking, it’s rare to see a feature presentation completely devoid of voiceover and subtitles (as opposed to the now-popular Michael Moore-style documentary, where documentarians put themselves in the middle of the narrative).However, the vérité style is itself useful for certain projects and segments of other features as a stylistic choice. Vérité allows viewers to connect emotionally with certain scenes and situations.The Fly-on-the-Wall ApproachAs a filmmaker, being an observer rather than a participant is important in telling the true story. (Image by guruXOX.)Another loosely defined vérité rule is the “fly-on-the-wall” approach of direct cinema. In this purest iteration of cinéma vérité, the goal of the documentarian is to simply observe with as few artistic decisions or edits as possible.Having been on several vérité-inspired documentary projects, this approach is actually one of the most difficult to pull off. For filmmakers who often alternate between documentary, narrative, and commercial projects, the desire to “stage” scenes, set up interviews, and coordinate everything beforehand is second nature.Although, when you force yourself to simply observe, you can quickly discover how many preconceived notions and narratives you may have brought with you. Instead, allow the story to develop on its own.Aim for “Truthful Cinema”Being familiar with cinéma vérité is useful when your director or client asks you to shoot in this style. (Image by guruXOX.)At the heart of cinéma vérité is the simple definition of “truthful cinema.” If you work in film and video long enough, you’ll find yourself on shoots where a client or director may ask for “verite-style” shooting. This is usually quick-speak for run-and-gun without much direction or planning.However, if you find an interest in the roots of documentary filmmaking, reading up on the genre, watching the classics, and challenging yourself to explore the style, you can discover a great deal about the art of documentary filmmaking.Cover image via Grey Gardens.For more documentary advice and resources, check out some of these articles below.The 6 Types of Documentary FilmsComparing Documentary Styles: Cinéma Vérité to Modern DocsSupport Your Documentary Vision with a Thoughtfully Considered SoundtrackSundance 2019: Tips for Shooting Verité Documentary FootageA Complete Guide to Documentary Filmmaking
The Punjab Police issued the first of its alert on Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s supporters turning violent in case of an adverse verdict on August 13, indicating the build up and violence being planned by the Dera followers, a Punjab police official told The Hindu. Additional Director General, Punjab, Hardeep Singh Dhillon said the instructions to field units were sent on August 13 and they liaised with the Army well in advance.“As soon as the verdict was announced and violence was reported, we mobilised the Army in five mins, as we had already liaised with them. Curfew was imposed immediately at places where we expected trouble. We asked the Haryana administration several times to tell us the date of the verdict as we didn’t want to be caught napping,” Mr. Dhillon said. On August 22, three days before the verdict was announced at a special CBI court in Panchkula, the Punjab Police had issued an internal order that the Dera properties had “started storing petrol, diesel in drums at Naam Charcha Ghars in Faridkot; they have also stored sharp edged weapons and stones on the roof of the Charcha Ghars. On 25.8.2017, if the Hon’ble court would give verdict against Gurmeet Ram Rahim then devotees can use petrol and weapons to harm/destroy the government/public properties,” the communication said. The Centre has refused to hold the Haryana government responsible for its failure to avert Friday’s violence and arson in Panchkula and Sirsa where 32 people were killed, even though intelligence agencies said multiple alerts were issued a month in advance. No casualties were reported in neighbouring Punjab, which also has many Dera ashrams. Home Minister Rajnath Singh held a high level meeting at his residence on Saturday, which was attended by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said, “DGP Haryana assured the situation is under control. In an ongoing situation, we cannot blame anyone (on Haryana government’s role).”Mr. Dhillon said it was difficult to identify and segregate the Dera followers on the streets. “They were moving around in normal clothes and in private cars, difficult to have stopped each vehicle to check their presence. This is why we enforced curfew in Punjab.” He added that 18,000 police personnel were mobilised and put on alert in the State.
