Michael Lynagh’s marathon mission

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Marathon effort: Michael Lynagh (centre) with other members of Team Sky for Stroke, who aim to raise £80kBy Sarah MockfordMICHAEL LYNAGH is going to run the London Marathon on Sunday 21 April – almost a year to the day that he suffered a near-fatal stroke.Look at the 1991 World Cup-winning Wallaby fly-half now and there are no outward signs of the trauma he suffered in Australia last April; he’s made a remarkable recovery, although he has lost nearly half the sight in his left eye.Lynagh realises how fortunate he is and, having met fellow stroke survivors, he decided he wanted to give something back, which is where a Sky Sports colleague stepped in.Wallaby wonder: Michael LynaghJames Gemmell, one of Sky’s rugby presenters, told Lynagh he wanted to run the London Marathon for the Stroke Association and rather than simply give him a pat on the back, 49-year-old Lynagh decided to join his antipodean workmate. You can sponsor Lynagh and his team by visiting justgiving.com/teamskyforstrokeHe may have won the 1991 World Cup with Australia but this is set to be Lynagh’s biggest challenge yet – and it is certainly an inspiring one. As he says: “I look forward to making a difference.”center_img Since then the whole thing has spiralled and now Team Sky for Stroke, an eight-strong squad including Scotland’s interim forwards coach Dean Ryan and former Ireland wing Tyrone Howe, will be pounding London’s streets in April to raise money for the charity.Lynagh has earmarked a specific project for the funds raised by his team’s efforts, too. He wants to focus on the Stroke Association’s ‘Back to Work’ scheme, helping survivors to return to work after their strokes.“I see myself as one of the lucky ones being able to go back to work,” he says. “Not all stroke survivors get that chance and by supporting the Stroke Association, I’m excited to try and help change that.”last_img read more

Clermont brilliance sees off Saracens to set up place in Champions Cup Final

first_imgMonday Apr 20, 2015 Clermont brilliance sees off Saracens to set up place in Champions Cup Final Wesley Fofana scored the only try of a tight first European Champions Cup Semi Final on Saturday, as Clermont beat visiting Saracens 13-9 to set up an all-French final meeting with Toulon. They faced the same team in the 2013 final, but came up short on that occasion. Stade Geoffrey-Guichard was packed with 42 000 fans and despite the close scoreline, they were not dissapointed, as a piece of brilliance from flyhalf Brock James set Fofana up for what proved to be a crucial score in the grand scheme of things.Earlier bustling winger Napolioni Nalaga came within inches of crossing, but was bundled into touch by Chris Ashton, who on another day might have been dealt with for a no-arms tackle.Clermont’s Welsh centre Jonathan Davies has said that wins like that justify his move to France.“Days like today are why I joined Clermont. As a rugby player you want to play in front of big crowds and you want to win things, and the reason I came to Clermont was to win things.“That was a big thing for me: Clermont were traditionally always up there competing for championships. So the opportunity for me to come here and play with some great players and be involved with a great club, I’m very lucky.“There’s a lot of rugby to be played and I look forward to being involved in it and hopefully we can get some silverware, because this club deserves some silverware after some painful, close shaves. We need to make sure that we get championships for this great club,” Davies said.Fullback Nick Abendanon said that he feels it’s time for Clermont to take the top spot.“It is another final for Clermont and we honestly believe this is our year. We have worked so hard to get here that, hopefully, it will be our year. It has been a hell of a ride in the Champions Cup this season.”He too said that days like that were one of the reasons he moved to France.“The noise in the stadium was deafening and you simply don’t experience anything like that kind of atmosphere in English rugby.”The final against defending champions Toulon will be played at Twickenham on 2 May 2015.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

No Need to Sign Up for ‘Top-Up’ Payments

first_img SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Sep 29, 2019 Facebook Twitter No Need to Sign Up for ‘Top-Up’ Payments Previous articleDealing with Weeds in Unplanted FieldsNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Farm Forecast for September 30, 2019 Eric Pfeiffer SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News No Need to Sign Up for ‘Top-Up’ Payments Facebook Twitter USDA has announced that producers with federal crop insurance will receive what they’re calling a “top-up” payment on their prevent plant acres this year.Producers with Yield Protection and Revenue Protection with Harvest Price Exclusion will receive a 10 percent top-up payment, while producers with Revenue Protection will receive 15 percent. You do not need to sign up to receive payments; all producers with a 2019 prevented planting indemnity will receive the top-up through their crop insurance company.When this idea was floated a couple of weeks ago in a USDA press release, producers flooded their local FSA offices to get signed up. Indiana FSA Executive Director Steve Brown reiterates that this top-up payment will happen automatically and is not administered by FSA.Here’s what Brown says you should be going to your local FSA office for:“If you haven’t signed up for your Market Facilitation Payment Program number 2, you need to get in and get an application filed so we can get producers paid. We’ve had great response so far. We’ve processed a lot of payments statewide and we’ve got more out there to do, so I would in encourage producers, if they haven’t been in, to get in, and also we started ARC/PLC.”Many producers are waiting for the ARC/PLC deadline to take time to evaluate which option is best for them after changes in last year’s farm bill. Brown says they want to be able to help with that process.“We’re going to get together and put on some public meetings. We’re in the process of trying to get to work with Purdue University and go out and do this with some of their staff and try to assist producers in making the right decision for their operations.”The deadline for your ARC/PLC decision will be in March.last_img read more

How to “kick out” a foreign journalist

first_img RSF_en Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts April 3, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 How to “kick out” a foreign journalist March 12, 2021 Find out more News UgandaAfrica Organisation Follow the news on Uganda Uganda urged to free two journalist held since last week on libel charges to go furthercenter_img News This column appeared in Kampala in The Daily Monitor on 31 March 2006Suppose you are president of Uganda. When you organise a presidential election, you first take care to neutralise your main rival because you think he is incapable of running such a complex and fragile country properly. It would be a disaster. So, there is no way are you going to be defeated. But your country’s press is lively and pushy. One newspaper in particular, called the Daily Monitor, is monitoring you a bit too closely. The foreign media aren’t fools either. The dispatches they send about your country really irritate you. You are also lampooned in radio broadcasts in which both foreigners and Ugandans and even your hapless press attaché take part. So you send some soldiers to put a bit of fear into these hotheads. But then the donors start asking questions. This has to stop.This, in essence, is what we saw happen in Kampala in February and March. It culminated absurdly with Canadian journalist Blake Lambert being turned back on 8 March as he tried to reenter the country at Entebbe international airport with a fellow journalist after a short vacation in South Africa. The Uganda correspondent of The Economist news weekly and the Christian Science Monitor daily, Lambert was stopped by customs officials as if he was a common trafficker and ended up being put on a flight to Kenya which he had to pay for himself. He is now back in Canada.This lamentable episode was not the first flagrant violation of press freedom this year in Uganda and it almost certainly will not be the last. What’s original about Uganda is that this time it was not the police or army or courts that were used by the government to monitor and punish allegedly unruly journalists. It was the ‘Media Centre.’Only recently opened by the government, the Media Centre’s official purpose is “to cause positive and factual awareness of government in the media.” It is headed by Robert Kabushenga, a former lawyer and columnist for The New Vision, a governmental daily newspaper, and it has been put under the president’s direct authority. Located at 36 Clement Hill Road in Kampala, the Media Centre also has the job of “assisting the Uganda Media Council in the accreditation of foreign journalists in Uganda.” It does this by making “recommendations.”It is obvious what recommendation it made about Lambert. In a 1 February letter to the authority in charge of renewing press accreditation, Kabushenga said Lambert’s reports were not just “unfair and biased” but also “prejudicial” to Uganda’s foreign policy. He was more specific in an interview for a radio station on 12 March: “If I had the authority to throw this man out, I would have done that a long time ago.” At the same time, Kabushenga in private made no bones about what he though t of foreign journalists: “We will kick them out.”But things are not that simple, even if you are the president. You preside over a state that has institutions, mechanisms and rules. And a bit of pomp. So it is not that easy to get rid of Blake Lambert. It is true that his precious accreditation, without which foreign journalists are not allowed to work in Uganda, expired in January and has not yet been renewed. But there is a major obstacle complicating a foreign correspondent’s expulsion. It is the Media Council, a body created in 1995 to regulate the news media. Father John Mary Waliggo, who heads this council, wrote to the information minister on 1 February explaining that it would be hard for the council to refuse Lambert accreditation because it had “members who belong to various political affiliations and ideas” and “it is never easy to push them into one direction.” Democracy has its drawbacks.For this reason, Father Waliggo suggested to the information minister and the head of the Media Centre that they should “use the immigration rules, since Lambert’s visa is over, and ask him to leave and from his home re-apply for the visa and when he does so, the visa is denied.” A clever ruse. But it is extraordinary that the person who proposed it to this authoritarian government is the head of an institution that is supposed to ensure that journalism is practised freely, without bowing to pressure. We know what ensued.Kabushenga’s Media Centre, Father Waliggo’s Media Council and Dr. James Nsaba Buturo’s information ministry are supposedly democratic institutions that have been turned into crude tools of repression whose mechanisms are a bit too obvious. Reporters Without Borders is dismayed by the way the Ugandan government has plunged into a universe built of hostility towards the press. If the international community says nothing, we are sure Lambert’s deportation will be followed by more cases. The closure of the Daily Monitor and KFM, perhaps. The expulsion of BBC correspondent Will Ross followed by that of the Canadian Television Network (CTN). And finally, why not, Reuters, AFP and AP. The only news sources for Ugandans would then be local journalists who were either terrified or happy to follow orders.Reporters Without Borders refuses to wait until Uganda gets to that point and calls on the Commonwealth not to delay action until a new Zimbabwe has emerged in its midst. Otherwise all we will be able to do is watch these spots on CNN produced by TERP Consult, an advertising agency run by President Museveni’s son-in-law. What did one of them say? That Uganda was “gifted by nature”? Cursed with impunity is more like it.By Robert MénardReporters Without Borders secretary-general UgandaAfrica News January 13, 2021 Find out more Ugandan president threatens to “bankrupt” leading daily News Uganda blocks social media and messaging apps, isolating election June 4, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

More resources needed to tackle housing crisis

The Government needs to start prioritising spending above and beyond the commitments made through the previous Social Housing 2020 Strategy,” Deputy Collins explained.“Off-balance sheet spending will have to be utilised to achieve this. Fianna Fáil prioritised spending on housing in our manifesto and we will continue to press the Government to release the necessary funding to adequately address the housing crisis.”However, according to Deputy Collins, funding is not the only problem the Government needs to overcome.“Outstanding problems with the planning process must be tackled to help kick start housing construction. Fianna Fáil will be bringing forward robust legislation based on the proposals contained in this report to achieve this. Our legislation will focus on developing strategic infrastructure to accelerate housing development and help avoid planning bottlenecks.”by Alan [email protected] Limerick TD says GLAS payments welcome but ‘much more action’ needed to support Agri-sector Email Previous articleMixed perceptions for Mixed Martial ArtsNext articleA holy show Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp Decision to enter Phase 4 of reopening Ireland deferred to August 10 Priority is to have a decent society with decent public services Politicians should work together to end homeless crisislast_img read more
