Kenya close to RWC 2019 spot but this sneaky try raised some eyebrows

first_imgMonday Aug 13, 2018 Kenya close to RWC 2019 spot but this sneaky try raised some eyebrows Saturday’s Africa Gold Cup clash between Kenya and Tunisia in Nairobi was hugely significant as it’s set up a direct qualification route for Rugby World Cup 2019. Despite the convincing win, the try below caused a bit of debate surrounding its legality.  Kenya scored 11 tries to beat Tunisia 67-0, picking up five points for the win and stay three points behind leaders Namibia in this year’s Africa Gold Cup.This year’s tournament doubles as a qualifier for next year’s Rugby World Cup, with the overall winner getting a spot as Pool B’s Africa 1 in Japan.Captain Davies Chenge scored one of their more memorable tries. It came from some sneaky deception by his number nine, but questions have been asked about whether it was legal or not. The dummy run took out a number of the opposition, opening up the space for Chenge to cruise through as three Tunisian defenders were wrong-footed.The resultant win sets up this coming weekend’s decider between Kenya and Namibia, with the winner set to claim the tournament title and that coveted Rugby World Cup spot.The runner up will remain in world cup contention, but will have to win November’s repechage in Marseille, where they will face Canada, Hong Kong and Germany. That will be their last chance to qualify. Elsewhere, Uganda beat Morocco 47-29 but Kenya’s bonus point win over Tunisia killed the Ugandan hopes of picking up a repechage place.Kenya and Namibia’s decider takes place this Saturday in Windhoek (KO 16:00 local time).Another angle of the Chenge try can be seen below belowcredit: apo/worldrugbyIts not illegal. The scrum ends when the ball is picked from the hindmost foot. The movement by #9 was simultaneous to that of #8 .No delay whatsoever occur hence no dummy. pic.twitter.com/P83t5k0dWi— Obara™ (@obara_89) August 12, 2018ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

U.S. intervenes against popular uprising in Sudan

first_imgThis article was first published May 3 in Avante, weekly newspaper of the Portuguese Communist Party. Its author, a former member of the Secretariat of the PAIGC, the party leading the struggle for the liberation of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, writes on African events for Avante. Translation by WW Managing Editor John Catalinotto.The African Union has given the Sudanese military junta two months to hand over power to a civilian authority that manages the transition from military to democratic rule.By doing this, the Pan-African organization has complied with the demands of the Sudanese democratic forces, which for many months have intensified the struggle against dictatorship and for freedom.Sudanese women were at the forefront of recent mass democratic organizing.Sudan is the third largest African country in land area and has more than 40 million inhabitants. It is rich in oil and natural gas — despite having lost three quarters of those resources following the secession of South Sudan in 2011. In addition to possessing hydrocarbons [fossil fuels], Sudan benefits from its location on the Red Sea, which is a fundamental passageway for world trade.Since December 2018, the Sudanese revolt has constantly grown. It started with protests against the rise in the price of bread, then demonstrations in the streets and squares of Khartoum and other cities. Not even the regime’s proclamation of a state of emergency and its brutal repression, with deaths and imprisonment, could stop it.The popular uprising, with continuous demonstrations at the gates to the Ministry of Defense, which was surrounded by the masses, forced the April 11 removal and imprisonment of longtime President Omar al-Bashir. Officers committed to the regime carried out a palace coup in an attempt to preserve dictatorial power with new faces at the top.The generals created a Transitional Military Council, which announced it would prolong the state of emergency and promised to hand over civilian governance within two years. This offer was rejected by the prodemocratic forces, who are supported by hundreds of thousands of people in the streets demanding the immediate transfer of power to civilians.Sudanese democrats are represented by the Forces for Freedom and Change platform, which brings together different political parties, including the Sudanese Communist Party, professional associations and other organizations that oppose the al-Bashir dictatorship. In recent days, they have been in talks with the military junta to form a transitional body with the majority participation of civilians. So far, the generals have refused these terms.The situation in Sudan is tense: On the one hand the TMC refuses to hand over or even share power with civilians; on the other hand, the masses demand the advance of democratic change. U.S. backs military juntaThis stalemate is all the more serious since the United States and its allies in the region are supporting the generals in the military junta, with their usual maneuvers of pressure and interference. In fact, while the Sudanese people rejected the illegitimate usurpation of power by the generals, the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates recognized the TMC. Washington envoy Steven Koutsis met a few days ago in Khartoum with Mohamed Daglo, number two in the TMC. This general, Sudanese democrats explain, is the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, formed essentially from the Janjaweed militias. The democrats say these militias have spread terror for 15 years in the Darfur region, where they have murdered thousands of people and are therefore responsible for crimes against humanity.Despite the interference by U.S. imperialism, the Sudanese people’s struggle will win and, sooner rather than later, realize their aspirations for freedom, peace and progress.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Restaurant trade continues to feel the pinch

first_img“It’s a tough nut at the moment and there’s no easy way out”RESTAURANTS in Limerick and throughout the country need to be “full three or four nights of the week to survive”. That’s according to TV chef and restaurateur Richard Corrigan who was in Limerick ahead of his live cooking demonstration in Thomond Park next Tuesday, September 14.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Corrigan when speaking to the Limerick Post, revealed that he felt the restaurant trade was “at the bottom” and that they “can’t cut anymore”, adding that he returns home to Ireland every two weeks and visits his “buddies in the restaurant business” and his “heart goes out them, it’s tough, it really is very, very tough for them.”Speaking at Thomond Park last week, the popular chef spoke openly and for the first time regarding his former business ties in the country.  The often outspoken chef said that he pulled out of the Dublin based Bentley’s Oyster Bar and Grill on Stephen’s Green earlier this year and focused his attention to his two London restaurants in Piccadilly and Mayfair.Tough economic times were evident for the industry and Corrigan noted that everyone was struggling.“It’s a tough nut at the moment and there’s no easy way out – the restaurant trade is at the bottom of their rethinking, they’ve done all of that.”And with little let up or breaks in leases, rates or rents, the chef added: “Restaurants and hotels are always going to take a hit in a downturn – people will choose to stop eating out as they have every right to. It is up to our sector to fight back and woo them in with great deals, which most have in fairness.”But Corrigan looks to the other side of the table too and notes that it is one of the best times for diners to eat out.“Family-run restaurants around Ireland are flourishing where people know there is great natural food. The image of Ireland to me is walking into a pub and a barman pulling a nice pint of Guinness and going to the restaurant and having some delicious natural food from the countryside from a great chef”, added Corrigan.

Schneider Electric Calls for Stronger Collaboration in Industries of the Future

first_img BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, introduced its Industries of the Future vision at ARC Industry Forum 2021 today. The industry-wide call to action urges industrial enterprises to embrace universal automation, sustainable efficiency, and digitalization to boost global economic recovery and advance manufacturing and process industries. As the most sustainable corporation in the world and a global manufacturer with an end-to-end network of smart factories and smart distribution centers , including three designated by The World Economic Forum as Advanced Lighthouses, Schneider is on a mission to make the industry of the future possible for all. Its next-generation framework and winning formula for industrial settings is founded around three core pillars: universal automation, sustainable efficiency, and software-centric automation. These create a firm foundation for protecting biodiversity and improving health and safety, while also enabling real-time data sharing and remote operations – resulting in step-change improvements in productivity and cost savings [Source: BloombergNEF ]. “As we strive to recover from the impact of the pandemic, improve productivity and drive sustainable agendas, industry has a golden opportunity to become a central pillar of global economic recovery,” said Peter Herweck, executive vice president, industrial automation, Schneider Electric. “Industrial automation helps build stronger eco-efficiency and a more innovative and resilient ecosystem. Today’s industrial innovation is driven by powerful software and data analytics that increases both productivity and sustainability. With net zero factories now possible due to increased computational power and connectivity, as well as advanced digital supply chains, ecology and progress are no longer at the opposing ends of the environmental spectrum.” Schneider Electric’s newest industrial solutions based on its EcoStruxure™ platform, and released at its Innovation Summit World Tour 2020, bring the benefits of universal automation, sustainability and software to the market. These include: EcoStruxure Automation Expert, EcoStruxure Power and Process, and EcoStruxure Plant Advisor. Universal automation Schneider Electric has challenged industry to advance the underlying technology model to meet modern agility and resiliency demands. “Open automation,” as it exists today, is not open enough as companies are bound by automation solutions that prioritize vendor lock-in rather than innovation. By contrast, “universal automation” is the world of interoperable, “plug and produce” automation software components, enabled by the IEC61499 standard. Portable application software is an essential enabler for next-generation industries, capable of unlocking step-change improvements in efficiency and sustainability impossible a decade ago. EcoStruxure Automation Expert is Schneider Electric’s first offer based on the universal automation vision. The benefits of universal automation are demonstrated by Schneider Electric’s strategic relationship with Wood, a global leader in delivering automation solutions. The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding agreement to provide Wood’s automation and control group access to Schneider Electric’s IEC61499-based technology. This is helping Wood to deliver innovative automation solutions to their global energy and industrial customers. Sustainable efficiency As the pathway to net zero factories protecting biodiversity, empowering workers and improving productivity, Schneider Electric has also called on manufacturing and process industries to approach production with a sustainable mindset. According to BloombergNEF, industrial digitization supports corporate sustainability, promotes decarbonization and circularity, reduces material waste, prolongs equipment lifetime and enables better emissions monitoring. EcoStruxure Power and Process empowers manufacturers to drive sustainability across the world’s most energy intensive sites. Using industry leading software from AVEVA and Schneider Electric, users can connect assets across the full lifecycle, resulting in one real-time view of projects and/or operations. By embracing innovative technologies alongside achievable sustainability goals, companies can easily accommodate new business opportunities while also conserving energy and safeguarding the natural environment. For example, Schneider Electric helped Argentina’s largest refinery develop and easily integrate the smallest footprint solution in the market for continuous energy improvement. Software-centric automation Faced with the continuing disruption of the pandemic and ever-changing customer requirements, Schneider Electric has underlined the importance of software. EcoStruxure Plant Advisor is the next evolution of the company’s IIoT digital plant management. Based on results from pilot projects, EcoStruxure Plant Advisor could generate up to €2.8 million / year of improvements for a typical €100 million manufacturing site. Tomorrow’s challenges will not be addressed with new hardware but will require the intelligent application of software-based technologies. This digital paradigm has the potential to provide unprecedented operational capabilities and support new business opportunities for all industrial stakeholders.

This is a reversal from the recent trend in which home asking prices have risen more quickly in non-judicial states because the “foreclosure wave” in certain areas came and went faster in those states as a result of not having to pass through courts. Tighter inventory at the end of a foreclosure wave typically results in an increase in asking prices, according to Trulia.For August, asking prices for homes in judicial states increased by 6.9 percent year-over-year, which is close behind the 7.8 jump in non-judicial states. By comparison, there was a much wider gap between the two in August 2013 when asking prices in judicial states rose by just 5.1 percent compared to 14.1 percent in non-judicial states. Only four metros out of the top 100 experienced a year-over-year decrease in home asking prices from August 2013 to August 2014: Albany, New York; El Paso, Texas; New Haven, Connecticut; and Little Rock, Arkansas.Foreclosure prevention counselors have saved homeowners millions of dollars annually, according to a recent study by the Urban Institute for NeighborWorks America. The September 2014 Urban Institute Report on the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling Program concluded that homeowners in default or in danger of defaulting who consult NFMC counselors are almost three times more likely to prevent foreclosure by way of mortgage modification. The average annual payment reduction for an NFMC-counseled homeowner who obtained a mortgage modification was $4,980.
