World Cup 2015: Ireland 50-7 Canada

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Man of the Match: Johnny SextonFor the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Ireland wrapped up the bonus point before half-time in their opening World Cup game but could not build on their advantage until late in the second half in the face of stubborn Canadian defence. They finished with a flourish, scoring three tries in the last 15 minutes, but despite running in seven tries they will feel they could have been more precise in capitalising on attacking opportunities.WHAT’S HOTJohnny Sexton – Whether it was pin-perfect kicks to the corner, booting the ball accurately across the field or setting up his back-line to attack with his sharp distribution, the Ireland fly-half was on fire. He even showed his pace when taking an inside ball to sprint for the corner in the first half.Positive mental attitude – Canada may have conceded four tries within 35 minutes, but they kept playing throughout. Not only did they test the Irish line on several occasions, DTH van der Merwe particularly sprightly and going over for a deserved try late on, but their defence held up well for the most part and kept Ireland scoreless for much of the second half.Green army: Ireland fans get into the spirit at the Millennium Stadium. Photo: Getty ImagesIrish support – Ireland’s fans piled into the Millennium Stadium and the noise they generated will have made it feel like a home game for Paul O’Connell & Co. Ireland will be hoping the supporters do the same as the games go on, particularly when they’re back in Cardiff to face France.Iain Henderson – The Ulster lock has been getting better and better over the past few weeks. His performance against Wales earned him a starting berth ahead of Devin Toner against Canada and he certainly made his case for keeping that shirt throughout the tournament. As a ball-carrier he consistently made dents in the Canada defence, barrelling over for a try, while he also made some critical interventions in defence.WHAT’S NOTJamie Cudmore – Canada’s captain may have a reputation as a ‘bad boy’ but he has not lived up to that in recent seasons. However, he will be ruing the yellow card he picked up after 15 minutes for cynical play as Ireland drove for the line. While he was in the sin-bin, the Irish were able to build a big advantage.Seeing yellow: Jamie Cudmore was sent to the sin-bin early on. Photo: Getty ImagesOpportunities missed – Ireland may have secured the bonus point but they will be disappointing they weren’t more clinical. A few inaccurate cross-kicks and bad decisions cost them tries – and they will need to be more ruthless to top Pool D. The number of penalties Ireland conceded will also be a worry for Joe Schmidt.Trains – First Great Western were forced to apologise after fans travelling to Cardiff endured delays and overcrowding on trains. Some supporters reportedly missed kick-off due to the delays and had to rush from the station to the stadium.STATISTICS97 – The percentage of territory Ireland had in the last ten minutes, to go with 96% possession. 137 – The metres made by DTH van der Merwe, the most of any player.10 – The number of turnovers won by Ireland compared to three by Canada.Red-letter day: DTH Van Der Merwe in full flight against Ireland.

Jon Bruno is among religious and civic leaders who called for a weekend of prayer and compassion July 19-20 for more than 52,000 young children who are in United States custody after fleeing violence, murder and extortion by criminal gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.Bruno, along with Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño of the United Methodist Church, Robert K. Ross, president and CEO of The California Endowment, and Fred Ali of Weingart Foundation visited a temporary shelter at the naval base in Port Hueneme, California, where thousands of children are being housed since crossing the border in search of friends or relatives in the United States.At a media conference in Los Angeles after the visit, the faith leaders called for a humanitarian response to the desperate conditions that cause the children – some as young as eight years old – to leave their homes. Bruno also praised federal officials for the quality of care being provided for the children. (A July 9 Los Angeles Times article about the group’s visit is here.)“Jesus’ words are clear about people in need,” Bruno said in a statement. “‘Let the children come to me,’ he tells his disciples – also stating that those who provide food, shelter and clothing ‘to the least of these’ do so to Christ himself. We need to be the compassionate hands and heart of Jesus in serving all children, and especially to those held in detention on both sides of the Mexico – U.S. border.

The vote, 138-4, is part of the employees’ efforts to slow down or stop a plan to move the agency out of the Washington, DC area. The Economic Research Service employees will be represented by the American Federation of Government Employees, according to the Hagstrom report. USDA, under the direction of the Trump Administration, has proposed to move the Economic Research Service, along with the National Institute for Food and Agriculture, out of the Washington, DC area.Critics say the move will trigger the loss of valuable staff members and isolate the agencies from the Washington, DC community and its resources. Earlier this week, USDA announced the final three potential sites for the two agencies, being the Kansas City metro area, Indiana’s Purdue University and Research Triangle Park of North Carolina. USDA says the moves will cut costs, improve employee quality of life and bring the agencies closer to stakeholders. Employees of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture are scheduled to vote on unionizing next month. SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more


Patterson: Not surprised by LT’s success

first_imgKristen Clarke Facebook printWhen Gary Patterson came to TCU in 1998 as a defensive coordinator, LaDanian Tomlinson was a backup running back.Now, Patterson is the winningest coach in Horned Frogs’ history, and Tomlinson is set to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.“LT was a great player but an even better person,” Patterson said. “The way he represents the NFL and TCU is unbelievable. His legacy will carry on for many years in the community.”Tomlinson was a running back for TCU from 1997 to 2000. Tomlinson was selected by the San Diego Chargers as the fifth overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft. He played 11 seasons in the league, from 2001 to 2011. His first nine seasons were with the Chargers, before ending his career with two years as a New York Jet.Tomlinson is the Horned Frogs’ all-time leading rusher with 5,263 yards while holding 14 of TCU’s 17 rushing records.Tomlinson was the 2006 NFL Most Valuable Player when he led the league with 1,815 yards rushing while setting a single-season record with 28 rushing touchdowns. He was also that year’s recipient of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.“Wins and losses, they keep your job,” Patterson said. “What we appreciate most is getting a chance to see how they’ve grown up and know that we were a part of them being able to have a better life.”TCU was one of the few schools to offer Tomlinson a scholarship to play college football.“It’s never been about how you start anyway,” said Patterson. “All it is proof that you can move forward.”Tomlinson, selected in 2014 as the 11th Horned Frog in the College Football Hall of Fame, earned his TCU degree in August 2005.“Greatness always comes at a price,” Patterson said. “No matter how much running we would do in the summertime or whenever, whenever he got done he did more.”Patterson said the thing that sets great TCU players apart is what they do and how they do it.“When LT first came to TCU as a sophomore, he weighed 210 pounds and ran a 4.60. In the offseason, he gained 10 pounds and ran a 4.38,” Patterson said. “I thought the watches broke, and we even went back and ran it again,” he said.Patterson said that Tomlinson would go back out after practice and work for another 30 or 45 minutes.“Ability is ability and then you’ve got to have a little luck to get where you need to be, but if you look at the kind of people they’ve become and how they’ve done things, that speaks volumes,” Patterson said. “That’s the thing that I’m most proud of.”[<a href=”//” target=”_blank”>View the story “LT” on Storify</a>]Patterson said it helps that alumni like Tomlinson come back to visit. Tomlinson was in Fort Worth cheering on TCU Men’s Basketball just a few days ago.“There’s not a better example of what you want to become to motivate our kids,” Patterson said. “It’s a circle of life, and it helps us with every facet.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin Defender first TCU soccer player be drafted into the National Women’s Soccer League Kristen Clarke Kristen Clarke is a senior studying sports & broadcast journalism from Barrington, Illinois.

While the official primary election day for Texas isn’t until March 6, registered voters don’t have to wait any longer because early voting is already happening.Tarrant County registered voters can vote early in the primary elections at the Brown Lupton University Union Feb. 26 to March 1, every day between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Residents can vote either in the Democratic or Republican primary election (ooooh the choices).The state of Texas requires every voter to bring at least one valid form of either Texas or U.S. identification from the following list:Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPSTexas Personal Identification Card issued by DPSTexas Handgun License issued by DPSUnited States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photographUnited States Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photographUnited States Passport (book or card)Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos encouraged voters to make use of the early voting period to ensure they had the time to vote. He also gave a shoutout to the millennial generation.“I commend all Texans who take responsibility for their civic duty by exercising their right to vote,”  Pablos said. “Most importantly, I encourage all Texans to work together to ensure that our youngest generation is instilled with a tradition of voting and encouraged to make their voices heard at the ballot box.”The primary features several exciting races but just to highlight a few:On the federal level:Senator Ted Cruz is facing a jammed back Republican primary against Bruce Jacobson, Stefano de Stefano, Mary Miller and Geraldine SamThe Democrats have a primary race of their own for the Senate election with Beto O’Rourke, Sema Hernandez and Edward KimbroughRepublican Rep.

As the stage is set for the Republican and Democratic primaries, it seems likely that the midterm election will be between incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke from El Paso, according to a recent poll from the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Tribune. The poll has Cruz favored by 91 percent and O’Rourke by 73 percent.In the House of Representatives, Texas’ 36 reps are mostly affiliated with the GOP. However, there is potential for a massive shift in the lone-star state’s representation in  Congress.For the first time in 25 years, there is at least one Democrat running in each of Texas’ 36 congressional elections, according to information from the Texas Secretary of State’s office. This could lead to the “blue wave” political junkies keep hinting at but only counting ballots will give us that answer.All of this exciting primary goodness is just the preview for the Nov. 6 general election though so stay tuned for more!

Journalists under threat from mounting violence and political unrest

first_img Follow the news on Burundi June 16, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists under threat from mounting violence and political unrest News Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention Receive email alerts to go further BurundiAfrica News Organisation RSF_en BurundiAfrica center_img Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about growing threats to the safety of journalists in Burundi in the run-up to the 28 June presidential election. Several incidents directly affecting Burundian journalists and media have been reported in the past few weeks.“These abuses are particularly serious in a country that was still enjoying a degree of calm a few months ago,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Since the municipal elections on 24 May, as a result of which 13 political parties withdrew from the presidential elections, journalists have been under threat from violence and political manipulation. We urge the authorities to do everything possible to guarantee their physical safety.”As Emmanuel Ndayishimiye of Radio Publique Africaine was returning home on the evening of 7 June, he was attacked and hit with bricks by police officers because of a report three months ago that a Muslim leader in the northern province of Ngozi had been badly beaten by policemen.“The police officers asked me why I broadcast that report,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “I replied that I was a journalist and I was just doing my job. They then started hitting me about the knees and stomach. I had to be hospitalised.”Ndayishimiye added: “It is not clear whether it will be possible to work amid all this tension. I am really afraid. I filed a complaint but I do not know whether it will result in those responsible being punished.”Several organisations that represent news media and journalists sent a joint letter to the National Council for Communication (CNC), the media regulatory body, on 8 June accusing Rema FM, a privately-owned radio station that supports the government, of manipulating the news, promoting hatred and stigmatising certain politicians, mainly opposition ones.Chiding the CNC for its failure to react, the letter said the regulatory body should now move very quickly to prevent Rema FM from continuing to broadcast information that could jeopardise social peace in Burundi.Reporters Without Borders is saddened to learn that Aurore Citegetse, a technician employed by Bonesha FM, was killed by a stray bullet as she was returning home on 13 June. She was hit in the head by one of the shots that were fired wildly by armed robbers holding up a service station.
