Not Every Kiwi Wants To Head To Europe

first_img“I heard about all the contracts from overseas but I didn’t think that was going to prove anything. I just want to make sure I at least complete some goals.“I want to make the hundy club with the Canes and it’s every kid’s dream to become an All Black. It’s a hard goal but achieving that one day would be awesome.”As a result Aso has re-signed with the Hurricanes up until 2020.Electric: Aso was brilliant last year for the Hurricanes (Getty Images)An important aspect here is the World Cup next year. New Zealand Rugby is expecting an exodus of players after the tournament, and it is clear Aso is looking to make an impact during that period post-RWC.Aso said: “That’s why I thought I’d hang around. If I keep putting in the work hopefully I’ll get a crack.” Not Every Kiwi Wants To Head To EuropeIn recent times, plenty players from New Zealand have moved to Europe to play rugby, with a large number ending up in the Top 14.Money plays a huge factor here, with players like Aaron Cruden, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, and Victor Vito moving to France for lucrative offers despite having creditable All Blacks careers.The same is happening in Australian and South African rugby too, but there are some who are rejecting these offers to try and play more for their countries.Related: The Great Migration – a Rugby World InvestigationAspiring All Black Vince Aso is the latest to reject a French move. It has been reported that he had several offers with a possible 500,000 New Zealand dollars being offered to the 23-year-old centre.“I’m still young and I’ve got more goals to achieve here in New Zealand,” Aso told the NZ Herald.

His 81% effectiveness epitomises a team sweating spinal fluid to do the job. So far Italy’s best has been well off the mark. But with Federico Mori joining Brex in the centres, Scotland may just have something unexpected to contend with.Right at the back, though, Italy have opted for more experience. Edo Padovani replaces Jacopo Trulla at 15 – a player undoubtedly game to learn, but who has been far too shaky in this championship.Throughout this tournament coach Franco Smith has seesawed over whether to start his best props on the bench, on the field, or a mix of the two (hey, recognising form up front is hard when you regularly lose). However, will Italy be strong enough for 80 minutes this time? And above all else, having conceded 40+ points to every other team this tournament, can Italy finally – finally – plug the gap? If they don’t, it will be one of the most demoralising defensive campaigns in memory.Italy team to play Wales – Saturday 13 MarchJacopo Trulla; Mattia Bellini, Juan Ignacio Brex, Carlo Canna, Montanna Ioane; Paolo Garbisi, Stephen Varney; Danilo Fischetti, Luca Bigi, Giosuè Zilocchi, Niccolò Cannone, David Sisi, Sebastian Negri, Johan Meyer, Michele Lamaro.Replacements: Oliviero Fabiani, Andrea Lovotti, Marco Riccioni, Marco Lazzaroni, Maxime Mbanda, Marcello Violi, Federico Mori, Edoardo Padovani.Italy Team to play Ireland – Saturday 27 FebruaryJacopo Trulla; Luca Sperandio, Juan Ignacio Brex, Carlo Canna, Montanna Ioane; Paolo Garbisi, Callum Braley; Andrea Lovotti, Luca Bigi, Marco Riccioni, Marco Lazzaroni, David Sisi, Sebastian Negri Johan Meyer, Michele Lamaro.Replacements: Gianmarco Lucchesi, Cherif Traore, Giosuè Zilocchi, Niccolò Cannone, Maxime Mbanda, Guglielmo Palazzani, Federico Mori, Mattia Bellini.Italy Team to play England – Saturday 13 FebruaryJacopo Trulla; Luca Sperandio, Juan Ignacio Brex, Carlo Canna, Montanna Ioane; Paolo Garbisi, Stephen Varney; Andrea Lovotti, Luca Bigi, Marco Riccioni, Marco Lazzaroni, David Sisi, Sebastian Negri, Johan Meyer, Michele Lamaro.Replacements: Gianmarco Lucchesi, Danilo Fischetti, Giosuè Zilocchi, Niccolò Cannone, Federico Ruzza, Guglielmo Palazzani, Tommaso Allan, Federico Mori.Italy Team to play France – Saturday 6 FebruaryJacopo Trulla; Luca Sperandio, Marco Zanon, Juan Ignacio Brex, Montanna Ioane; Paolo Garbisi, Stephen Varney; Daniele Rimpelli, Luca Bigi, Marco Riccioni, Marco Lazzaroni, David Sisi, Sebastian Negri, Johan Meyer, Michele Lamaro.Replacements: Gianmarco Lucchesi, Danilo Fischetti, Giosuè Zilocchi, Niccolò Cannone, Federico Ruzza, Maxime Mbanda, Guglielmo Palazzani, Carlo Canna.

African human rights body urged to pull out of Banjul because of climate of fear imposed by President Jammeh

first_img August 6, 2020 Find out more Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder GambiaAfrica Organisation RSF_en Receive email alerts Three journalist arrested, two radio stations closed in Gambia Reporters Without Borders wrote today to Salamata Sawadogo, the chairperson of the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR), voicing “extreme concern about free expression” in Gambia and suggesting the time has come for the commission to consider transferring its headquarters from Gambia “until the civil and political liberties of Gambians, including freedom of expression, are respected.” News News Help by sharing this information January 27, 2020 Find out more GambiaAfrica News to go further Reporters Without Borders wrote today to Salamata Sawadogo, the chairperson of the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR), voicing “extreme concern about free expression” in Gambia and suggesting the time has come for the commission to consider transferring its headquarters from Gambia “until the civil and political liberties of Gambians, including freedom of expression, are respected.”After thanking Sawadogo for taking advantage of a news conference on 29 May to mention The Point co-editor Deyda Hydara, the Agence France-Presse and Reporters Without Borders correspondent who was gunned down on 16 December 2004, the organisation voiced its “disgust at the behaviour of the Gambian authorities” in this still unpunished murder.“Nearly 18 months have gone by since the murder of one of West Africa’s most respected journalists without any real progress in the case to give the family hope that justice will one day be done,” the letter said. “What is known about the circumstances surrounding Hydara’s murder, including the modus operandi, the repeated prior threats against him and the political context, have not been used by the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).”The letter continued: “The likelihood that it was a political murder linked to the victim’s work as a journalist has not been explored. Forensic analyses of evidence found at the murder scene, including ballistic reports, have not been released. The autopsy report, which the family needs to claim Hydara’s life insurance benefit, has never been made available, despite repeated requests. Even more disturbing is the fact that our investigations revealed that Hydara had been threatened by the NIA and was still under its surveillance just a few minutes before the murder.”In its letter, Reporters Without Borders spoke of its “extreme concern about the unacceptable treatment that press freedom has received in Gambia for several years,” adding that: “The deterioration in the situation, which has been particularly marked in recent weeks, is all the more appalling as Gambia is supposed to host a summit of African Union leaders next month and hold a presidential election in October.”At least three journalists are currently detained in Gambia in violation of all legal procedures and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights that was adopted by the ACHPR. Articles 6, 7, 8 and 9 of this charter, which Gambia signed, provide for protection against arbitrary arrest, the right to a free trial, freedom of opinion and the right to news and information. “All these provisions have recently been flouted by the Gambian authorities, who show no hesitation in arresting people arbitrarily.”Musa Sheriff, a journalist with the privately-owned weekly Gambia News & Report, and Malick Mboob, a former journalist with the privately-owned Daily Observer, were arrested on 26 May and were thereafter held at NIA headquarters in Banjul. They were picked up after their names appeared on a list of subscribers to the online opposition Freedom Newspaper, whose website had been hacked a few days before.Pa Modou Faal, a journalist with the state-owned Gambian Radio Television Service (GRTS), was arrested at the same time and was freed along with Sheriff on 30 May. Mboob is still being held. None of them was charged or saw a lawyer within the 72-hour deadline set by the law. Lamin Cham, a BBC correspondent and former editor of the Daily Observer, was arrested yesterday, while Daily Observer news editor Omar Bah went into hiding to avoid arrest by the NIA.Lamin Fatty, a journalist with the privately-owned bi-weekly The Independent, was arrested at his home by police on 12 April and was held for more than a month without being allowed to see a lawyer. He was charged on 24 May with “publishing false news” under a draconian law providing for heavy prison sentences that was adopted despite the protests of local and international press freedom groups on the eve of Hydara’s murder.The Independent’s general manager, Madi Ceesay, who is also president of the Gambia Press Union, and his editor, Musa Saidykhan, were held secretly for nearly three weeks, from 28 March to 20 April, in violation of all legal procedures. The premises of their newspaper were closed and sealed and have since been illegally prevented from reopening, despite the NIA’s promises.

Release of six activists arrested during raid, nine still held

first_img Receive email alerts February 22, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Release of six activists arrested during raid, nine still held SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that six of the activists arrested during the 16 February raid on the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM) – Yara Badr, Mayadah Khaleel, Razan Ghazzawi, Rita Dayoub, Sana Zetani and Hanadi Zahlout – were released two days later, on the evening of 18 February. The six – all of the six women still held since the raid – were nonetheless told to report every day to the headquarters of the Syrian air force intelligence for as long as the investigation continues, a form of harassment that Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns. A seventh woman arrested during the raid, Maha Assabalani, was released within a few hours.Reporters Without Borders has learned that two other people were arrested during the raid on the SCM – Ayham Ghazzoul and Shady Yazbek, a visitor. This brings the total number of people arrested in the raid to 16, of whom nine are still being held at air force intelligence in the Damascus suburb of Mezzeh.The nine still held are:- SCM president Mazen Darwish- Hussein Ghareer- Hani Zetani- Joan Farso- Bassam Al-Ahmad- Mansour Al-Omari- Abdelrahman Hamada- Ayham Ghazzoul- Shady YazbekReporters Without Borders calls for their immediate and unconditional release and condemns the methods used by authorities, who will be called to account for any mistreatment. The detainees have reportedly been tortured. Four United Nations experts have also condemned the raid and expressed concern about the way the detained activists are being treated.Reporters Without Borders would also like to express its condolences to the family and colleagues of New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid, who died during a reporting visit to Syria on 16 February as a result of an asthma attack. The staff of the New York Times has paid tribute to Shadid, who was a Middle East specialist (read the tributes).The detained filmmaker and cyber-activist Firas Fayyad was meanwhile released on 19 February. Arrested on 1 December at Damascus airport as he was about to fly to Dubai, Fayyad was held on charges of spreading false information and belonging to an opposition movement.Access to Bambuser, a Swedish website that allows users to post video footage shot with a mobile phone, has been blocked in Syria since 16 February. Confirming this the next day, the head of the site said “dictators don’t like Bambuser” and that the Assad regime regarded it as a “serious threat.”The Syrian opposition has been using Bambuser to circulate video footage of the government’s brutal repression. Video of the bombardment of Homs that had been posted on Bambuser was recently broadcast by the main Syrian TV stations. Bambuser was blocked in Egypt in January 2011 and has been blocked in Bahrain for the past seven months.

Security forces arrested him during a raid on his office in Damascus at midday together with his companion Yara Badr and the blogger Razan Ghazzawi.Twelve other people, including employees of the centre, journalists, bloggers and human rights activists, were arrested during the raid. They were identified as Hanadi Zahlout, Hussein Ghareer, Hani Zetani, Sana Zetani, Rita Dayoub, Joan Farso, Bassam Al-Ahmad, Mayadah Khaleel, Maha Al-Assablani, Mansour Al-Omari and Abdelrahman Hamada.Assablani was freed a few hours later but she is facing the possibility of deportation.Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned for the physical safety of the others and calls for their immediate release.Darwish has had run-ins with the authorities before. He was questioned by intelligence officials in Damascus for four hours on the evening of 22 March 2011 and was interrogated again the next day. A week before that, on 16 March, he was briefly arrested while attending a peaceful sit-in outside the interior ministry in Damascus as an observer. His centre, which is the only NGO in Syria that monitors the media and the Internet, has been closed by the authorities twice, in 2005 and 2009.Ghazzawi was previously arrested on 4 December as she was about to cross the border into Jordan and was held for two weeks.Zahlout, a blogger, has been arrested three times before. The last time she was arrested, on 4 August 2011, she was held until 30 November. Ghareer, who is also a blogger, was previously the victim of an abduction-style arrest on 24 October and was released on 1 December (http://en.rsf.org/syrie-arrest-of-noted-blogger-shows-no-05-12-2011,41512.html).The Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression was accorded consultative status by the United Nations Economic and Social Council in July 2011.

Size, shape and the distribution of organic matter in the Recent Antarctic brachiopod Liothyrella uva

first_imgThe living terebratulid articulate brachiopod Liothyrella uva (Jackson 1912) was sampled from a shallow water population at Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, Antarctica. Neither shell height nor shell breadth were directly proportional to length and as a result there was a change in shell shape with size (and hence age); this change was small but statistically significant. The proportion of the total organic matter found in the shell and internal (mantle) tissues also changed with size. In small (5–7 mm length) brachiopods 70–80% of the total organic matter was located within the shell; this fraction decreased with increasing size until above about 25 mm length the proportion of organic matter in the shell was constant at 30–45%. Variability in this measure was influenced by infection with endolithic red algae. Punctal density was independent of size with a mean value of 95.7 per mm2 [SE (standard error) ± 2.2], which was greater than in populations sampled from higher latitudes. With increasing shell length there was a slight increase in the size of puncta close to the shell edge. In all morphometric measures the range of variation observed was similar to that described from populations of Liothyrella from other areas of the Southern Ocean.last_img read more

Australian Navy concludes exercise Sea Explorer

first_img View post tag: Royal Australian Navy View post tag: Sea Explorer The Royal Australian Navy has concluded the amphibious exercise Sea Explorer off the coast of Queensland.The exercise was held over the anniversary of the D-Day landings, which took place on the 6th June 1944 on the coast of France.Commander of the Amphibious Task Group, Captain Paul O’Grady, acknowledged both the historic significance of the exercise as well as the importance of support from the community.“Sea Explorer 2018 coincided with the anniversary of the D-Day landings which of course was the largest amphibious operation in history,” he said.“Some 500 Australian sailors participated in D-Day, with the Royal Navy operating landing craft with similarity to the landing craft activity that has been undertaken with this exercise.”HMAS Choules was among ships participating in the exercise, having just completed another amphibious activity during exercise Croix du Sud in New Caledonia. But it was Navy’s LHD HMAS Canberra which was centrepiece to the exercise with aircraft and landing craft being deployed on a constant basis to move and support troops as they made landings along the coastline around Bowen.Commander Landing Force, Colonel Malcolm Wells said Sea Explorer provided a first-class opportunity to continue the ADF’s development of a full-spectrum, truly joint, amphibious capability.“Each time we do this our understanding of each Service grows,” COL Wells said.“Unquestionably this is a joint endeavour and not possible without the full cooperation of each Service.”Exercise Sea Explorer also involved significant efforts ashore. The Amphibious Task Group (ATG) itself is based at Fleet Headquarters in Sydney. They are an integral part of the Fleet Battle Staff in the COMWAR Branch. The ATG Headquarters typically comprises a standing staff of 60 personnel from across Navy, Army and Airforce with a diverse array of ranks and specialisations represented.“Our people are permanently on 48 hours notice to move for a range of situations,” CAPT O’Grady said.“In fact, our staff can double in size to well over 100 for activities such as the Sea Series and major Exercises such as Talisman Sabre.“I am very proud of our people’s ability to plan, adapt to and execute complex amphibious activities across the full spectrum of operations.” Photo: Soldiers from the Ground Combat Element of the Australian Amphibious Force move ashore from landing craft during exercise Sea Explorer 2018.
