Calls for consistency after Tuilagi red card and Parkes tackle

first_imgMonday Mar 9, 2020 Calls for consistency after Tuilagi red card and Parkes tackle In a weekend of red cards, the Six Nations has left plenty to be debated about over the coming days.ADVERTISEMENTManu Tuilagi’s late red card for a tackle on George North at Twickenham on Saturday is one that has divided opinion.The outside centre was dismissed by referee Ben O’Keeffe after much deliberation for a shoulder charge to North’s head. Many have accepted that it was a red card offence, although it was mitigated by the fact that the winger was almost at ground level when the hit came in.What is proving to be more contentious is Hadleigh Parkes’ tackle on Tuilagi in the first half, for which the inside centre only conceded a penalty.These two tackles looked completely different, as Parkes made a discernible effort to wrap his arms around in the tackle, but there was nonetheless clear shoulder to neck, or even head to head contact. Equally, Tuilagi’s level did not drop when being tackled, which would have made it easier for Parkes to make a legal hit.ADVERTISEMENTWhat horrendous consistency. Parkes given nothing for a shoulder to Tuilagi’s head in the first half with no mitigating circumstances. Tuilagi sent off for one on North where North is already going down. Awful, and it’s Joncker as the TMO. Shock.— Theo Livesey (@LiveseyTheo) March 7, 2020There are those that feel Tuilagi’s tackle warranted a yellow card only, but when compared to Parkes’ hit, it is hard to argue that there was such a gulf between the two that one was only a penalty and the other was a red card.ADVERTISEMENTThis has led to calls for greater consistency in refereeing. It will always be nigh on impossible to have consistency between different matches, but there is an expectation that the same standards must be adhered to across eighty minutes, and many feel that did not happen at Twickenham.The outcome of both tackles may have played a part as well in the decision making of O’Keeffe and the television match official. The Leicester Tigers centre was able to carry on moving forward after the Welshman’s hit on him. The fact that Parkes struggled to make sufficient impact on one of the strongest carriers in the game may have actually saved him.In contrast, North lay on the floor incapacitated after receiving his tackle, which may have played on the match officials’ minds.Based on the current tackling framework, Tuilagi’s red was perfectly justifiable and that is understandable, it is the level of consistency that is still causing problems.

This new construction was thought for their children and grandchildren to use for the holiday seasons, in order to generate independence from the main house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva & ArquitectosThe first thing we did was to design a simple, practical and functional place. A house that could exploit the space as efficiently as possible, resulting in a cottage-style house. This is emplaced on a hill with a gentle slope, favoring the views of the lake and to the Villarrica Volcano. The house is built on a square of 9x9mts that rises above the natural ground by a concrete base that protects it from moisture. Above this perimeter stands a wooden partition, that from a simple geometry, seeks to maximize the indoor-outdoor connection. Considering its location and climate of extreme rain, we decided to project the ceilings in two well defined parts, which are the key element of the architectural proposal that seeks to frame and contain the inside of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva & ArquitectosThe interior program is distributed from a public space that seeks to leverage each m2, eliminating any type of corridor. Thus, all environments complement each other in an efficient way. The access area is an open space that is integrated under a double-height ceiling. This level is the most private area of the house, which is independent from the rest by a staircase that faces the volcano and rises to an attic that is located above the living room.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva & ArquitectosThe facades are worked independently according to their views, but under the same language of continuous coating (roof-wall) that gives body, contains, and highlights its shape.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva & ArquitectosProject gallerySee allShow lessGuerrilla Green Sustainable Showdown CompetitionArticlesHelsinki Central Library Competition Entry / Tanni Lam, Johnny Chiu, Adrian LoArticles Share 2010 Architects: Matías Silva & Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Bascuñan House / Matías Silva Aldunate Architectlast_img read more

NAFTA Talks Turn to Dairy Dispute

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News NAFTA Talks Turn to Dairy Dispute SHARE NAFTA Talks Turn to Dairy Dispute Facebook Twitter The U.S. wants to reverse Canada’s dairy supply management system as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiation. U.S. negotiators centered on the agriculture chapter of NAFTA over the weekend, and proposed to reverse Canadian dairy pricing program that has undercut certain U.S. dairy exports to Canada. The text, which demands that Canada eliminates an industry pricing classification that lowered domestic prices for certain milk protein products to the minimum global price, was met with swift pushback. The proposal, called a “five-page attack” on Canada’s management system, also includes transparency requirements for Canada to report pricing decisions.A labor union representing dairy workers in Canada said the U.S. is “preparing a full assault on Canada’s supply management system.” The U.S. has long protested Canada’s system of tariffs and export limits designed to protect the domestic market, which is not part of the original NAFTA agreement.Source: NAFB News Service By NAFB News Service – Oct 17, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleWeed Scientist Has Doubts Over Dicamba Restrictions’ EffectivenessNext articleDow AgroSciences and ADM Collaborate to Bring Enlist E3™ Soybeans to U.S. Farmers NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Journalists in conflict zones: train with the French army

first_img From the 9th to the 14th of December 2012, the press service of the French Defence Department’s Delegation for Defence Information and Communication (DICoD) welcomed the 450th recipient of the training internship for journalists in conflict zones, organised by the National Commando Training Centre in Collioure (Pyrénées Orientales).Since 1993, the DICoD has hosted two annual sessions, each of around 20 people, to journalists, whether freelance or working on behalf of international, national or regional media, and who would like to benefit from being trained in the dangers inherent to reporting in high risk areas. What’s in Store? Theory lessons, introduction to different types of weapons (from handguns to light machine guns), shooting practice, evasion and self-defence techniques, simulations in “war zone” reporting, clearing obstacle courses…The Purpose of the Exercises? To understand the risks in order to protect themselves in dangerous zones, to learn stress management techniques, handle basic first aid, get tips and advice, and finally: – to avoid moving around, where possible – to have people come to them, rather than going to see them,- to avoid being alone,- not to enter buildings,- to be courteous, but not submissive, at check-points… April 22, 2013 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Journalists in conflict zones: train with the French army Organisation RSF_en See also:- A video presentation of the training by the French Ministry of Defence (in French)For further reading: – The journalist Quentin Michaud’s story published in Journal du Dimanche – RSF safety ressources for journalists travelling abroad 3.

At a time when more and more reporters are joining soldiers on the ground, including sometimes to the frontlines, training journalists also allows the army to ensure their operations are not disturbed. The main aims of the internship as described by the DICoD are:1. To train participants in the risks of urban environment battlefields:- the effects of light infantry weapons, shelling and explosives, and the danger of mines and booby-traps;- check-points, security checks and roadblocks;- summary arrests and detention.2. Teach techniques to limit the effects of these risks:- reaction to open fire (evacuation, protection);- being vigilant about the danger of mines and booby-traps;- attitudes towards provocations during arrests at roadblocks set up by government forces, militia or bandits;- basic first aid (evacuating an injured or traumatised person);- what to wear News Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more
