George North’s monster hit on debutant Embrose Papier shuts down Springboks

first_imgThursday Jun 7, 2018 George North’s monster hit on debutant Embrose Papier shuts down Springboks George North capped off Wales’ 22-20 win over South Africa in Washington DC with this monster tackle late in the game, shutting down a possible counter-attack and last-minute comeback. While North was playing in the midfield, he will move back to the wing this weekend. Wales snatched the win late in the game after two charge downs on replacement flyhalf Robert du Preez, who had a shocking few minutes and a Test debut he would rather forget.He was the 12th South African debutant on the day, with his performance summing up the overall showing, from a young side that will look very different when the Springboks take on England this coming weekend.Wales also fielded a lot of youngsters but North, now a veteran of 74 Tests at the age of just 26, showed his experience when he flew in to make this stop tackle and smash young Embrose Papier.It was described as a ‘monster hit’ and it too came from an unforgiving Du Preez pass, just minutes after he had been charged down twice, allowing Wales to score the all important winning try.Du Preez obviously spotted the three-man overlap out wide, so if Papier had managed to shift it, who knows what might have happened in those closing minutes.While North played at centre in the USA, he will move back to his more familiar role on the wing when Wales face Argentina this coming weekend in San Juan.WALES TEAM TO FACE ARGENTINA: Hallam Amos; Josh Adams, Scott Williams, Hadleigh Parkes, George North; Rhys Patchell, Gareth Davies; Wyn Jones, Elliot Dee, Dillon Lewis, Adam Beard, Cory Hill (capt), Seb Davies, James Davies, Ross Moriarty.Replacements: Ryan Elias, Rob Evans, Tomas Francis, Josh Turnbull, Aaron Wainwright, Aled Davies, Gareth Anscombe, Owen Watkin.MATCH HIGHLIGHTS:ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Containers have been selected by colors to be left unpainted, with availability dictating the ultimate building color. They were stacked and cut on site, and combined to form the units.

Chris, 40, co-owner with his wife Kiri Lewin, of Cafe Crema in New Cross has taken the unusual step of asking friends and family to sponsor him to live in Lewisham for the next five years.The cafe has been running benefit gigs but Chris wanted something more on going and unusual to encourage donors to continue to give and others to sign up to their own campaigns. Working through Bmycharity, Chris has set up a fundraising page, that gives all the details of his campaign and the work undertaken by MAP.Ben Brabyn, MD of Bmycharity said “Chris is a fine example of a dedicated fundraiser who has thought of an imaginative project to fundraise for a cause close to his heart. I hope that Chris will inspire others as he has proved that fundraisers with passionate ideas can go ahead and successfully set up a campaign. Organising a page on Bmycharity is very quick and easy, fundraising can begin immediately. You would have to ask yourself why not!”In October 2007 Chris visited Palestine in response to an email asking for help with the Olive harvest – he sells Palestinian olive oil at his cafe. To have Westerners present when collecting the harvest reduces the intimidation and violence the farmers receive from the Israeli soldiers and settlers. Chris said “I stayed in Nablus and saw the devastation (loads of buildings destroyed by the Israelis, with neatly dressed school children picking their way through the rubble) and daily humiliations (particularly at the checkpoints; soldiers, with fingers on triggers, aiming their guns at very patient civilians who are just trying to get to work or college) that the people have to suffer. And that’s just the West Bank. I’m too chicken to go to Gaza. So I chose MAP because they’re evidently very active there, and they must need all the money they can get. I’m not very impartial.”With the estimated cost of rebuilding Gaza after recent events running into the billions, charities working in the region are currently running extensive fundraising programmes just to bring aid to the affected Palestinians. Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) is a British charity that operates in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Lebanon. They deliver health and medical care to vulnerable Palestinians and strive to establish a permanent medical infrastructure in Palestinian communities by training health care practitioners, teaching medical vocational skills and addressing the requirements of particularly vulnerable groups such as people with disabilities.MAP offers practical medical support to Palestinians, and other victims of conflict and displacement, by working with local non-governmental organisations and the Palestinian Health Service.Bmycharity is a unique website that offers fundraisers the ability to run their own fundraising campaign through the site or choose the appropriate event to fundraise for the charity of their choice. Their system is entirely automated showing a real-time fundraising total on every fundraisers page. Through the Bmycharity website it has been proven that charities can recruit new supporters. Chris hopes to do just that through his campaign for MAP as well as increase awareness of the work they do and encourage others to fundraise.For further information on how to fundraise for charity with Bmycharity, please visit or call 0845 058 0549.-ends-For further press information and photography, please contact:Emma Walton, Walton Public Relations, 86 Roman Way, Bourton-on-the-Water, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire GL54 2HD Tel: 01451 821800 Mobile: 07515 357842 Email: [email protected] to Editors:• Bmycharity was founded in 2000 by Ben Brabyn and Matt Cooper.• Bmycharity is unique website that offers charities the opportunity to recruit fundraisers and collect sponsorship and fundraisers the ability to choose the appropriate event to fundraise for the charity of their choice.• The new automated system shows one total in real time on every fundraisers page, reducing administration for both the charity and the fundraiser.• Once the fundraising target is reached the place on the chosen challenge is confirmed.• Fees are 20%-30% lower than other fundraising websites.• Bmycharity gives fundraisers a lifetime experience whilst helping their favourite charity.  32 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

US – #WeeklyAddress: February 4 – February 10: Journalists facing harassment while reporting from southern border

first_img Journalists facing harassment while reporting from southern borderJournalists, lawyers and activists have faced harassment from US and Mexican authorities while working from the US-Mexico border, according to a report The Intercept published on February 8. In recent months Mexican officials have approached groups of photojournalists and photographed their passports, on one occasion admitting the photos were “for the Americans,” according to the Intercept report. Spanish journalist Daniel Ochoa de Olza and US-Canadian freelancer Kitra Cahana, both of whom had their passports photographed by Mexican authorities in recent months, were eventually barred from re-entering Mexico from the United States in January. Some journalists, including freelancer Manuel Rapalo, have been accused by border patrol of helping migrants cross into the United States. Rapalo, who has been reporting at the border for Al Jazeera, has twice been brought into secondary screenings when returning to the United States through Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC. During his most recent screening on January 18, a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer told Rapalo he was likely being stopped because of his “line of work.” Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) opened an investigation into CBP’s conduct at the border. Wyden’s statement to The Intercept read: “It would be an outrageous abuse of power for the Trump Administration and CBP to target people for searches based on their political beliefs or because they are journalists.

February 11, 2019 – Updated on February 12, 2019 US – #WeeklyAddress: February 4 – February 10: Journalists facing harassment while reporting from southern border Colorado officers reprimanded for detaining journalists Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information June 7, 2021 Find out more Two members of Denver’s police department will lose two days’ pay following an investigation into a July encounter during which Susan Greene, editor of The Colorado Independent, was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car. Greene said the officers disregarded her claim that she had a First Amendment right to take photos on a public sidewalk. Greene was released after ten minutes and an internal investigation was launched into the matter. Following the incident, a spokeswoman for Denver Mayor Michael Hancock told The Denver Post, “Denver is not about arresting journalists who are doing their job. That said, it will be important not to prejudge the situation until the internal investigation that is underway is completed.” Greene was one of 11 journalists arrested in 2018, according to the US Press Freedom Tracker. Journalists at New Yorker, Daily Beast, AP say they were blackmailed by National Enquirer’s parent companyJournalist Ronan Farrow, reporters from The Daily Beast, and members of The Associated Press’ (AP) investigative reporting team say they have received messages threatening blackmail from National Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc. (AMI) in recent weeks. Not long after the Enquirer published intimate text messages exchanged by Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder hired an attorney to open an investigation to find out how the company obtained those messages and why they were published. On February 7, Bezos published a column that included an email his lawyers received from AMI’s Chief Content Officer threatening to publish illicit photos of Bezos if he didn’t stop investigating the company. Bezos’ column prompted reporters to come forward about threats they received. Farrow said in a February 7 tweet he had fielded “stop digging or we’ll ruin you” blackmail efforts from AMI when covering breaking news stories related to the National Enquirer’s relationship with President Trump. Ted Bridis, a former AP investigative reporter, responded to Farrow’s tweet, saying the AP had also been “warned explicitly by insiders that AMI had hired private investigators to dig into backgrounds of @AP journalists looking into the tabloid’s efforts on behalf of Trump.” The Daily Beast’s Editor-in-Chief Noah Shachtman echoed those sentiments on Twitter and shared an article that citing AMI’s threats.

ARIANA DREHSLER / AFP Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of February 4 – February 10: News News RSF_en Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Follow the news on United States to go further June 3, 2021 Find out more News BuzzFeed News’ deputy director of breaking news, David Mack, said he was aggressively questioned by a border patrol agent upon arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport on February 3. The agent repeatedly asked about a highly-discussed BuzzFeed investigation that was published in January alleging that President Donald Trump had ordered his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Russia — allegations that Robert Mueller, special counsel in the Russia investigation, disputed. Mack wrote about his experience with the border agent in a Twitter thread, saying he felt compelled to respond politely for fear of angering him and potentially not being allowed into the country.  Andrew Meehan, CBP Assistant Commissioner for Public Affairs, apologized on behalf of the agency in a statement BuzzFeed published on February 5, referencing the agent’s “inappropriate remarks,” and also called the reporter to personally apologize that same morning. Mack had just arrived in the United States from the United Kingdom, where he had traveled to renew his work visa. An RSF analysis published in October outlines the difficulties many foreign correspondents face in obtaining such visas, while a report the Committee to Protect Journalists published on the the same day found that 37 journalists were stopped for secondary screenings at US ports of entry more than 110 times between 2006 and June 2018. Thirty of those journalists reported they had been questioned about their reporting. WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists United StatesAmericas A federal judge reportedly ordered the Chicago Sun-Times not to publish the details of a court document that revealed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had secretly recorded an Illinois politician offering up his private law firm’s services to a developer, according to an incident the US Press Freedom Tracker reported on February 7. The document, which Sun-Times reporters downloaded after it was accidentally posted online to PACER, a website journalists often use to access federal court records. It revealed Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan’s intentions to lend his private law firm’s services to a developer interested in building a hotel in Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood. The reporters defied the judge’s order and used this information in a January 29 report. A week later, business news website Chicago Business reported in a follow-up article that the judge decided to order the newspaper not to publish likely on the grounds that “premature publicity could undermine what appears to be an extremely wide-ranging federal probe.” Chicago Business reported that it was unclear whether the judge would take further action against the Sun-Times.

Ivorian media’s slow death

Harassed, threatened and exposed to physical violence, journalists are now finding it virtually impossible to work freely.The press freedom organization urges civil society and the two rival camps led by Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouattara to respect freedom of expression and the right to news and information.All journalists, without exception, are the victims of this steady worsening in the political situation. Newspapers of all political sympathies are encountering great difficulty in operating. Journalists identified with the Gbagbo camp cannot visit and work in the north, centre and west, which are still controlled by the pro-Ouattara former rebels of the New Forces. The pro-Ouattara media are unwelcome in the Gbagbo-controlled south.Reporters and editors from four newspapers – Le Démocrate, Le Mandat, Nord Sud Quotidien and Le Nouveau Réveil – were questioned for several hours on 18 February by members of the criminal investigation police on the orders of state prosecutor Raymond Tchimou. Supervised by deputy prosecutor Mamadou Diakité, the interrogations were carried out in accordance with a report prepared by the prosecutor’s office entitled “Impact of the opposition press on Côte d’Ivoire’s post-electoral crisis.”The management of Horizon Média, the company that publishes the pro-Ouattara daily Le Mandat, said members of the Security Operations Command Centre (SECOS) attacked several of the newspaper’s employees as they were travelling to the printer’s on the evening of 18 February. As a result, the next day’s issue did not appear. The two journalists working for the pro-New Forces TV Notre Patrie who were arrested on arrival and Abidjan air base on 28 January – Sanogo Aboubakar (aka Abou Sanogo) and Kangbé Yayoro Charles Lopez (aka Gnahoré Charly) – have been incarcerated in the main Abidjan penitentiary on the orders of the Abidjan-Plateau state prosecutor .In a communiqué published on 18 February, the new president of the National Press Council (CNP), Deby Dalli Gbalawoulou, issued a stern warning to the national news media and threatened then with severe penalties. The Côte d’Ivoire Press Editors Group (GEPCI) has suspended its participation in the CNP’s new governing body.A driver employed by the Nord Sud Quotidien newspaper was kidnapped yesterday by gunmen travelling in an unmarked car. There is still no news of him.The CNP today imposed fines of 1 million CFA francs (1,525 euros) on two newspapers, Jour Plus and Le Nouveau Réveil, on the grounds that they had printed an article that defended violence.“We urge all the media not to stir up hatred and social tension in the fraught and sensitive climate currently prevailing in Côte d’Ivoire,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “It is now more necessary than ever to act professionally and respect journalistic ethics.
