Serious gas shown by Eagles wing Ngwenya

first_imgSunday Sep 30, 2007 Serious gas shown by Eagles wing Ngwenya Zimbabwean born Takudzwa Ngwenya scored this electric solo 50 meter dash out of nothing against Samoa a few days ago.He got the ball with not a helluva lot of space but showed exactly what a bit of determination and raw speed can do for a side.Yes, the Samoan tackles weren’t great (as the commentator went out of his way to point out), but the running and fend were great.Fantastic to see the USA score a try like this. It also lifted their side and they ended up getting within 5 points of the eventual winners Samoa, thanks to an excellent conversion from captain Mike Hercus. Final Score: 25-21 to Samoa UPDATE: Watch his more recent brilliant try against the Springboks here.

Friday Funnies – New Ireland jersey gets aired

first_imgFriday Sep 18, 2009 Friday Funnies – New Ireland jersey gets aired The long awaited unveiling of the new Puma Irish rugby jersey took place in Dublin on Tuesday as nine members of the Irish team, including Ireland Womens international Grace Davitt, modelled the range.The new kit deal is reportedly worth 5 million per annum over the next eight years. Thats huge in rugby terms, and kit will go to the Irish senior and under-age squads.The design has gone back to the more traditional Ireland colour of Power Green, and comes with a revolutionary double layer construction for rapid evaporation, along with pumaflex stretch panels for great freedom whatever that means.While Puma have taken the step to position themselves brilliantly in the market, the seriousness of the event was lost on two of rugbys most senior professionals.As Brian ODriscoll and Paul OConnell stepped forward to be interviewed, Gordon Darcy couldnt control himself, and just at the right moment, broke wind.OConnell couldnt contain himself, as the fits of laughter made the launch a bit of a joke, but was hilarious to watch. Each time he tried to speak, he cracked up laughing again, until eventually the mic was turned to ODriscoll, who was a bit more composed.Im glad I didnt hear it, admitted ODriscoll afterwards, lets put it that way, because Im sure I would have reacted somewhat similarly.Asked if Lions captain OConnell becomes embarrassed easily, ODriscoll joked: Hes half way there already from the reddener point of view anyway with the colour of his head. Once you get in those fits, its hard to stop.Boys will be boys. :: Related Posts :: Friday Funnies – A day in the life of Paul O’Connell Time: 03:02 Note: Apologies for the poor audio.

Capacity building charity the Resource Alliance has announced the Global Awards For Fundraising, which will draw together the winners of more than a dozen country’s national awards. Each country’s winners will then be judged against each other to determine the international winners.Participating national awards hosts include the UK’s Institute of Fundraising, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) based in the USA, the Fundraising Institute of Australia, together with associations in Europe, and from India, Japan and Brazil.The new awards are designed to “honour and celebrate fundraising excellence while setting aspirational standards and best practice on a world-wide scale”. The awards are part of the Resource Alliance’s core objectives of professionalising and stimulating fundraising through promoting best practice and innovation.The organisation hopes that the new awards will be an incentive for more countries to set up national associations to support their non-profit organisations.The RA has itself already set up national awards schemes across 10 countries in the global South, including the India NGO Awards, launched in 2005 and supported by the Rockefeller Foundation.The first global awards will be presented at the Resource Alliance’s flagship event the International Fundraising Congress (IFC) 2010, held in the Netherlands this October, where the RA will celebrate its 30th anniversary remembering three decades of developing fundraising capabilities worldwide.Neelam Makhijani, CEO of the Resource Alliance, announces the first RA Global Awards for FundraisingLindsay Boswell, CEO of the UK’s Institute of Fundraising, said: “The Resource Alliance Global Awards for Fundraising programme is a great idea and is absolutely the RA’s territory as they are truly global in their reach. I’m really looking forward to seeing our own awards winners proving that the best of British can also lead the world when it comes to fundraising. We are really pleased to be working in partnership with the RA in recognising the ‘best of the best’.”Paulette Maehara, CEO of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) based in the USA, added her support for the new awards saying: “AFP encourages the recognition of fundraising excellence and the importance of philanthropy to increasing capacity of civil societies around the world.”Only winners of the current year’s national awards will be eligible for entry into the Resource Alliance Global Awards for Fundraising, and entries will be accepted only from national awards hosts. The national hosts will determine which of their awards winners will be entered to represent their country on the global awards stage and they will be required to submit a brief entry form. They can choose to enter one or more categories and shortlisted entrants will be invited to the awards ceremony at the IFC. Entries will be judged by an independent jury made up of five eminent professionals from around the world.The Resource Alliance Global Awards for Fundraising will comprise four categories, two for organisations and two for individuals:* Big Idea, Small Budget Award* Innovative Fundraising Campaign Award* The Global Fundraiser Award* The Outstanding Volunteer AwardThe deadline for entries is 1 September 2010.www.resource-alliance.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Over 900 exhibitors fill the Kentucky Exposition center in Louisville, showcasing the latest in innovation for agriculture. Exhibitors said anything that can help producers reduce costs was getting a lot of attention. “These guys are looking under every rock they can find to try and cut costs,” said Elston Sayers, with Seed Consultants.  He told HAT he had seen producer attitudes improve in the past few weeks.Cody GaultAt Farm Credit Mid-America, the talk was about finding ways to get producers the operating credit they need and protecting the interests of both borrowers and lenders with crop insurance. Cody Gault, with Farm Credit Mid-America, told HAT farmers need to focus on protecting their operation with crop insurance, “They need to understand how their policy works and understand their guarantee. You need to have a sound plan and make it part of your marketing plan for the 2018 crop.”Lenders are taking more of a risk with many operations this year and are requiring crop insurance as a way of protecting their investment. “We want to work with growers and help them limit their risk exposure and have that repayment capacity,” said Gault. “Helping to secure the future of agriculture, that is what we are here for.”Wendy osbornWendy Osborn with Farm Credit Mid-America said they are optimistic about the future and feel 2019 will bring recover and better margins to many operations. “Many farmers are taking a look at their balance sheet and finding ways to improve their operations,” she stated. “I think farmers are finding ways to make some changes and set their operation up for a more profitable future.” Facebook Twitter Farm Show Crowds Focused on Cost Cutting Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Show Crowds Focused on Cost Cutting SHARElast_img read more

Statue of Chinese Nobel peace laureate to be unveiled in Taipei

first_imgNews TaiwanChinaHong KongAsia – Pacific Events ImprisonedFreedom of expressionRSF PrizeNobel Prize June 28, 2018 Statue of Chinese Nobel peace laureate to be unveiled in Taipei to go further Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom A statue of Chinese writer and Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo will be unveiled by the “Friends of Liu Xiaobo” and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in Taipei on 13 July, the first anniversary of his death in China from a cancer left untreated in detention. The Friends of Liu Xiaobo is a group led by Wu’er Kaixi, a Chinese-born activist and member of RSF’s Emeritus Board. Designed by the Taiwanese artist Cheng Ai-Hua and funded by subscription with support from RSF, the statue will initially be installed in a public space near the famous Taipei 101 Tower, an area that attracts many Chinese tourists.Another statue of Liu was temporarily installed on 12 June outside the Times Square shopping centre in Hong Kong and has been removed since. In Canada, the home of many people of Chinese and Taiwanese origin, Amnesty International Canada, PEN Canada and the Toronto Association for Democracy in China have announced plans to unveil a statue in honour of Liu in June 2019, on the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre.A tireless advocate of freedom of expression and the freedom to inform, Liu embodied the resistance to oppression in China. RSF awarded him its Press Freedom Prize in 2004, six years before he became a Nobel peace laureate.He was sentenced to 11 years in prison in 2009 for calling for peaceful political reform in his “Charter 08” manifesto, which had been posted online the previous year. When he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010, he dedicated it in his prison cell to the “wandering souls of 4 June,” in reference to the victims of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.Widow still detainedLiu died less than three weeks after it was reported that he had been transferred to a hospital with terminal liver cancer. He was isolated and closely watched during his final weeks in the hospital and the Chinese authorities did not heed the many international calls for him to be allowed to receive treatment abroad.International concern is now focused on his widow, the painter, poet and photographer Liu Xia. Although not accused of any crime, she has been under house arrest in Beijing ever since her husband’s Nobel award was announced in 2010.Last month, the Berlin-based dissident Liao Yiwu released the recording of a phone conversation in which Liu Xia can be heard expressing her despair about the Chinese government’s refusal to let her travel to Berlin.Ranked 176th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, China continues to be one of the worlds biggest jailer of journalists.

Aran Narayan Dekate died in hospital two days later.Fellow journalists in Nagpur told Reporters Without Borders that his death was very likely to be linked to articles he wrote in the Marathi-language regional daily Tarun Bharat. He was the second journalist to be killed in India since the start of 2006.Reporters Without Borders called on the Maharashtra state government to carry out a thorough investigation to find those who attacked and killed Narayan Dekate. “When a government promises to guarantee press freedom, there are no famous or unknown journalists. The police and the courts should put the same resources into the inquiry into this case as they would for a well-known journalist in Nagpur.“The death of this correspondent in a rural area dramatically highlights the levels of violence against the press in some regions of India, the organisation said.At least four people ambushed Narayan Dekate as he travelled on a motorbike with a friend on the road between Nagpur and Wardha, hitting him with several stones. He was taken to hospital in Nagpur badly injured and died on 10 June.Local police who have opened an investigation said the journalist had recently written an article in Tarun Bharat, a paper close to the Hindu nationalist movement RSS, about a scam in the world of illegal gaming .

first_imgbaona/iStock(WYOMING, Mich.) — A Michigan church said it raised enough money to pay off the medical debt of nearly 2,000 struggling families.Sam Rijfkogel, pastor of Grand Rapids First in Wyoming, Michigan, said the church purchased more than $1.8 million worth of medical debt for “less than a penny on the dollar” through a nonprofit group. “There are people whose medical debt, they cannot pay. There is no way. It’s looming over their head,” Rijfkogel said during Sunday’s service. “Most of these folks are in poverty levels or below poverty levels and there’s no way that it can be repaid, but they feel the creditor banging on their doors.”“Today, that $1,832,439.26 that’s looming over families right now — those families that are living in poverty rates or less — has been paid in full as a result of a gift from this church,” he added.Rijfkogel said the debt was paid off by RIP Medical Debt, a nonprofit group that says it has abolished more than $624 million in medical debt since it’s creation in 2014, according to its website.The organization eliminated the medical debt of 1,899 local families using the church’s donation, according to Rijfkogel.The families were from four Michigan counties — Kent, Ottawa, Allegan and Ionia — and the largest debt paid off was $75,581, according to the church.“They owe us nothing,” Rijfkogel said. “We can be peacemakers. Just as Jesus forgave and canceled the debt of our sins, we also canceled the debt of those in our community.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
