Northampton Saints beat Munster in nail biter at Franklins Gardens

first_imgMonday Oct 12, 2009 Northampton Saints beat Munster in nail biter at Franklins Gardens Northampton Saints did Munster no favours as they beat them 31-27 in an energy charged Heineken Cup match at Franklin Gardens on Saturday. It was a brilliant return to the Heineken Cup for Saints, following a three-season absence.Shame Geraghty was the standout player of the match as he impressed with his dynamic flyhalf display. England coach Martin Johnson was watching from the stands and will no doubt have taken notice of the star Saints number ten.He scored a try and created two others as he tallied up 21 points, helping Saints with a repeat of their win over Munster in the 2000 final, the last time these two sides met in the competition.Three times capped Geraghty turned a tight game in his teams favour with an opportunist try on the stroke of half time as he tapped and ran a penalty when Munster expected him to kick for goal.Wing Chris Ashton crossed with two tries, with David Wallace scoring once for Munster.Geraghty killed them off though on 75 minutes with a penalty, halting their stirring fightback following four penalties from Ronan OGara and a neatly taken try by Tomas OLeary.It was a high quality contest that had elements of all the ingredients required for a great spectacle. Munster hammered away at the line relentlessly as the clock counted down, but Saints held out with staunch defence, picking up a truly memorable win.

RSF denounces the outrageous reversal of Angolan justice in the Rafael Marques case.

first_img October 28, 2020 Find out more May 28, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RSF denounces the outrageous reversal of Angolan justice in the Rafael Marques case. News RSF_en Receive email alerts News Organisation Help by sharing this information AngolaAfrica Follow the news on Angola Crackdown on reporters covering Luanda demonstration February 17, 2021 Find out more News AngolaAfrica In an outrageous U-turn, an Angolan court today imposed a six-month suspended prison sentence on journalist Rafael Marques de Morais on a criminal defamation charge after dropping all charges against him a week ago in connection with his book “Blood Diamonds: Corruption and Torture in Angola.”The judge also ordered Marques to withdraw his book from sale in any form, including online, and to not republish it or have it translated into any other language, on pain of imprisonment.Under the terms of the sentence, Marques will have to serve the six-month jail term if he commits any offence during a probationary period of two years. His lawyers said they will appeal.The grounds given by the prosecution for pressing for a conviction was part of the statement Marques gave to the court in order to get the charges dropped. Marques said he had not directly questioned the army generals whose security and mining companies were implicated in his book, and that he would have included their replies if he had.The prosecution took this statement out of context and used it to claim that Marques had admitted his guilt. On this basis, the prosecution sought a one-month suspended sentence, but the court went further and imposed a six-month one today.“This sentence, coming after the plaintiffs agreed to withdraw their complaint, is absolutely iniquitous,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“The way the Angolan authorities twisted Marques’ words shows that they are determined to break him, to reduce him to permanent silence. More generally, it is a message designed to deter all Angolan journalists from covering anything to do with the misdeeds of those in power. We call on the courts to overturn this conviction, which is a disgraceful violation of the very principle of due process.”Reporters Without Borders joined 50 other human rights groups yesterday in sending an open letter to President José Eduardo dos Santos voicing deep concern about the Marques case and the deterioration in the environment for freedom of expression in Angola.Angola is ranked 123rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.______________________________________________________________Reporters Without Borders hails yesterday’s decision by a Luanda provincial court to drop all 24 charges in the criminal libel trial against investigative journalist and activist Rafael Marques de Morais that began in March. Marques had been facing up to 14 years in prison in the case brought against him by seven army generals and a group of private companies over his allegations of grave human rights violations and corruption in connection with the diamond mining industry in the Lundas region.In his book “Blood Diamonds: Corruption and Torture in Angola,” published in Portugal in 2011, he documented 500 cases of torture and 100 murders of villagers by military personnel and private security companies, and accused the generals of endorsing these “crimes against humanity.”Marques agreed yesterday not to republish his book, which remains available in electronic form. This undertaking was a “voluntary action designed to facilitate dialogue and future exchanges of information,” said Marques, who intends to continue investigating human rights in the Lundas region.“We are very happy and relieved to learn that all charges have been dropped against Rafael Marques,” Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles said.“We hope that the end of this trial marks the end of the judicial harassment endured by this journalist for several years. Marques is an investigative journalist who just did his job and who, after concluding his research, revealed to the entire world vital information about appalling crimes in the mining industry. “Dangles added: “By being crowned with success, this battle has become a source of optimism. It is a victory for freedom of information in Angola.”The seven generals originally filed suit in Portugal, but they refiled in Angola after the case was dismissed in Portugal in February 2013. Marques initially faced nine counts of criminal defamation but another 15 counts were added when he appeared in court on 24 March 2015.The case drew a great deal of international attention. On the eve of the 24 March hearing, Reporters Without Borders and nine other human rights organizations issued a joint call for the withdrawal of all charges against Marques.Previously, in December 2014, Reporters Without Borders and 16 other NGOs sent a joint letter to the special rapporteurs (for freedom of expression and the situation of human rights defenders) of the United Nations and the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights, asking them to press the Angolan government to end the prosecution.A renowned journalist who has won many awards for the quality of his reporting, Marques has been hounded for years by the Angolan authorities. Ever since the late 1990s, he has been the target of arbitrary arrests, prolonged judicial proceedings and travel bans – all aimed at silencing one of the last independent journalists in this wealthy African country.Defamation continues to be a crime in Angola and the authorities often use defamation charges to gag journalists who expose corruption in the state or private sector. Angola is ranked 123rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Bullocks would dress the Pasadena Showcase House committee members in fine dresses and bring a jeweler that would garb the ladies “dripping in diamonds.”Times have changed, but the Pasadena Showcase House continues to throw a stunning Empty House Party with scrumptious delicacies in every room of the gutted home that will see transformation in a matter of four months.“Were pleased people are responding to the house so well and coming to celebrate 50 years of the Pasadena Showcase House. After four years we’re glad to be back in Pasadena, its special for the 50th house,” co-chair of the event Vicki McChiggage said.The grand 1915 English country estate boasts seven bedrooms, ten baths, five fireplaces, oak floors, redwood wall paneling and floor to ceiling leaded glass windows. The house sits on 3.5 wooded acres and features a pool, bathhouse, river rock springhouse, tennis and badminton courts, a greenhouse and a carriage house.At the time the house was built, his and her bathrooms were the usual. The current master bedroom will be transformed by turning one bathroom into a luxuriously elegant dream closet with white paneling trimmed in gold and the other into a spacious bathroom.The 33 designers walk through or around the house one time and then cast a vision. Their grandeur ideas will entirely transform the English cottage home to a modern resort that will utilize eco-friendly landscaping.One of only four designers from Pasadena, Cynthia Lambakis and Samantha Williams of Ederra Design Studio will participate in Showcase House for the first time by designing the Nanny’s Room. Envision a daybed, an elegant chair and creamy tones.While the two ladies loved those days of glamour and red carpet before the time of Hollywood, the long time friends Zimmer and Marevich are connected by their deep care for giving musical experiences to budding students to open their worlds and horizons.From the Music Mobile that gives 3rd graders hands on instrument experience to a concert in Walt Disney Hall concert experience for 4th graders, Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts views music as essential to a child’s education. The Instrumental Competition rewards musicians between the ages of 16-24 with monetary awards that have totaled more than $550,000.Founded in 1948, Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts is an all-volunteer organization that has enriched thousands of lives with music.The 50th Pasadena Showcase House will open in April.

Fracture of Antarctic shelf ice

first_imgWe have investigated the fracture of Antarctic shelf ice core using two fracture mechanics test methods: the chevron-notched short-rod specimen loaded in tension and the chevron-notched round-bar specimen loaded in three-point bending. These tests have been used to measure the fracture initiation toughness, Kinit, at which crack growth starts, on samples taken through the entire thickness of the Ronne Ice Shelf, from low-density firn through consolidated meteoric ice to basal marine ice. The fracture data are presented together with depth profiles of relevant physical and mechanical properties derived from the test specimens: temperature, density, elastic modulus, and grain size. It is found that the trend in measured fracture toughness closely reflects changes in ice density and elastic modulus. We augment the experimental study by presenting a fracture mechanics analysis of ice shelf surface and basal crevassing which directly incorporates our measurements. For the examined ice shelf profiles, basal crevasses are found to be inherently unstable unless an external restraining force is imposed, which has important implications for overall ice shelf stability. On the other hand, surface crevassing is shown to be innately stable at depth. Our fracture mechanics model is used to predict local ice shelf back stresses in the vicinity of basal crevassing and is validated directly against field observations of crevasse penetration on the Ronne Ice Shelf.last_img read more
