Campo – A David Campese Tribute

first_imgSaturday Dec 27, 2008 Campo – A David Campese Tribute One of rugby’s greatest characters, both on and off the pitch. With 64 tries in 101 Tests for Australia, David ‘Campo’ Campese is a true legend of the game. He played to entertain and to enjoy himself. Since his two try debut against the All Blacks in 1982, Campese has represented his country at fullback and on the wing, winning everything from Bledisloe Cups to Grand Slam tours to the 1991 Rugby World Cup. His willingness to take chances and make mistakes resulted in more than a handful of memorable moments, particularly for the Barbarians in 1984 and in the 1991 World Cup Semi Final against New Zealand. Having eventually moved on from playing rugby, Campo took to coaching (The Sharks in Durban, South Africa) as well as running his own sports store in a Sydney suburb. It isn’t often the rugby world witnesses a player as expressive as Campese and to acknowledge this, Rugbydump salutes him with this tribute.

Alarmingly, 18% of the 300 UK charities surveyed by PKF and the Charity Finance Directors’ Group (CFDG) between May and June 2004 are not covered for these eventualities. Of these housing, conservation and protection, religion and business/professional association charities were the least likely to have insurance for major risks like flooding. The most likely to have such insurance were health and medicine charities. Advertisementcenter_img Two thirds of respondents identified fire/flood or major incident as a significant risk to their organisation. Almost half of these organisations have a significant degree of dependence on a single site and almost a third of respondents rely on specialist equipment or premises. Charles Cox, head of charities at PKF, said: “Preliminary data from the PKF charities risk survey 2004 suggests that the threat of major incidents like flooding is recognised and, indeed, a number of respondents have directly experienced one. “The lack of insurance cover appears to be a conscious choice as few respondents have cited difficulties obtaining insurance cover as a reason for not having it. “Most organisations are taking some actions in order to address the issue but few are taking the full range of measures needed.”Arrangements that he recommends should include: assessment of actions to minimise the likelihood of the event happening major incident response plan to cope with the incident business continuity plan to keep the organisation running insurance cover to mitigate the inevitable cost of the incident.

Farmers Ready to Rally for Farm Bill

first_imgWith the current bill set to expire at the end of the month, time is running out; but the Michigan Democrat believes there is still time, if the House acts, “There is not a lot of difference between the bill we passed in the Senate and the one that is before the House.” The primary differences involve language in the commodity title and funding for the food and nutrition program, the latter being the main roadblock to House passage.  Yet, Stabenow believes, if the House will pass a Farm Bill, a House/Senate conference committee can hammer out a compromise in short order. Facebook Twitter Farmers Ready to Rally for Farm Bill The much talked about Farm Bill Now rally will take place in Washington, DC on Wednesday. While it will generate lots of rhetoric, will it bring about any action?  In a rare showing of unity and activism, over 40 farm groups will hold a rally on the mall in Washington calling on the House to take action on a Farm Bill.   While there will be lots of speakers, their message will be a simple one, “Pass a Farm Bill now!” That was the phrase repeated over and over by Senate Ag Committee Chairman Debbie Stabenow who got a jump on the rhetoric by holding a press briefing on Tuesday. She told reporters that she believes there is support for a Farm Bill in the House, if the speaker will let it come to the floor, “I have talked with members of the House, and I believe there are enough votes to pass the bill.” House Speaker John Boehner has been quiet on why the House Ag Committee Farm Bill has not been brought to the floor for a vote. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Sep 11, 2012 Home News Feed Farmers Ready to Rally for Farm Bill The “Farm Bill Now!” rally, which will take place at Union Square in front of the Capitol Reflecting Pond, will feature members from the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives addressing the crowd, as well as leaders from a broad range of farm, conservation, energy, consumer, and nutrition organizations.   “Our coalition represents a broad cross-section of agriculture and is extraordinarily varied in its policy priorities,” said ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean farmer from Syracuse, NE. “ASA and its coalition partners may differ on many of the individual aspects in various titles of the farm bill, but more important than that is our commitment first and foremost to getting a bill done. We will work with farmers, with our partner organizations, and with our representatives in Washington to get this job finished in the interest of providing America’s farmers with the security and certainty they need.” National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson and American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman will serve as a masters of ceremonies for the event.Watch live coverage of the rally athttps://www.farmbillnow.com/[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/09/farmbillnowwrap.mp3|titles=Farmers Ready to Rally for Farm Bill]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/09/farmbillnowwrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Previous articleFarm Bill Extension Not Part of Continuing ResolutionNext articleMarket Braces for September Crop and Supply Demand Reports Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Regime again jams foreign-based radio stations

first_img May 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Regime again jams foreign-based radio stations April 1, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts RSF_en Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world Reporters Without Borders calls on the South Korean government and the international community to intercede with the North Korean authorities and get them to stopping jamming five international and exile radio stations. After declining steadily since July 2006, North Korean jamming resumed on 11 May. Reporters Without Borders today deplored the North Korean government’s resumption on 11 May of its jamming of independent and dissident radio stations broadcasting in Korean from outside and called on the South Korean government and the international community to defend their right to broadcast freely.”North and South Korea are celebrating the historic reopening of a railway line between the two countries, yet the Pyongyang regime is trying to stop North Koreans from getting news other than that served up by the regime,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “This is a violation of international law.”The programmes of radio stations Free North Korea Radio, Voice of America, Open Radio for North Korea, Radio Free Asia and Radio Free Chosun (all based in South Korea or the United States) are those targeted, according to the Northeast Asian Broadcasting Institute and the International Shortwave Club.North Korea’s ruling Labour Party, the only party allowed, last month denounced news from the outside world that allegedly aimed to destabilise the regime and ordered the security forces to stop all video cassettes, written material, mobile phones and CDs from entering the country.The jamming may have been part of these measures or, an Open Radio official told Reporters Without Borders, may have been linked to the reopening of the railway. Jamming of these short-wave stations had substantially declined since last July.North Korea’s serious energy crisis apparently prevents the regime jamming all frequencies round the clock.North Korea is ranked bottom in the Reporters Without Borders worldwide Press Freedom Index.

Both Afghan government and international community must protect journalists and media in Afghanistan

first_img AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsInternational bodies Armed conflictsViolenceCouncil of Europe Help by sharing this information News Organisation Receive email alerts AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsInternational bodies Armed conflictsViolenceCouncil of Europe More than 70 countries and 20 international organizations and agencies are attending the conference, which has been organized by the EU and the Afghan government.The conference is intended to allow the Afghan government to defend its record on reforms, explain its plans for the future, and urge the international community to pledge lasting political and financial support for peace, the consolidation of the state and development in Afghanistan.RSF is using the occasion to express deep concern about the safety of hundreds of journalists and media outlets in several Afghan provinces where attacks by the Taliban and Islamic State (Daesh) have intensified.Around ten media outlets and 100 journalists are currently operating in these provinces under direct threat from rebel forces and sometimes under pressure from local authorities. According to RSF’s tally, there have been at least 35 cases of violence against journalists and media in Afghanistan since the start of the year.“On the eve of the conference, the Taliban stepped up their attacks in several regions including Kunduz and Helmand,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Afghanistan bureau. “Journalists have been forced to flee. In the light of the critical situation in Afghanistan, we reiterate the need to create the position of special representative of the UN secretary-general for the safety of journalists.”The government, police and security services have a duty to protect journalists and media outlets. Guaranteeing the safety of the Afghan people includes protecting the right of journalists to provide them with news and information. At this time of danger, the democratic nations involved in Afghanistan must also face up to their responsibilities. We must not let Afghan journalists be discouraged by the Taliban threats and by the international community’s silence.Journalists have paid a high price. At least 35 journalists have been killed in connection with their work in Afghanistan since 2001. They include 16 foreign journalists (four Germans, two Americans, two French, two Italians, two Swedes, one Australian, one Canadian, one Norwegian and one Briton). Most of these journalists were killed by the Taliban and most of these deaths have gone unpunished.The Taliban and Islamic State are media freedom predators and one of their leading goals is to deprive the public of independently reported news and information by creating a climate of terror and reducing the media to silence.Despite courageous efforts by journalists to do their duty to provide news coverage, Afghanistan’s war zones – the provinces of Helmand, Kunduz, Baghlan, Nangarhar, Takhar, Ghazni and Farah – are in the process of becoming news and information “black holes” in which media freedom is disappearing.The single deadliest attack on the media since the fall of the Taliban government in 2001 – the suicide bombing of a Kabura production company bus in Kabul on 20 January 2016 that killed seven Moby Group media workers – was typical of the Taliban policy of undermining peace and democracy.The attack was clearly premeditated because Tolo TV and 1TV – Afghanistan’s two leading privately-owned TV channels – were named as “military targets” in a Taliban communiqué on 12 October 2015.Signed by the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Military Commission,” it said: “We henceforth regard Tolo TV and 1TV as military targets, not as news media (…) Nothing is safe from our attacks, neither personnel (presenter, reporters or crews) nor the building themselves.”RSF finds it unacceptable that democratic countries and the Afghan government do not condition all negotiations with the Taliban on an explicit prior commitment to respect to respect the Geneva Conventions and the other basic international humanitarian law treaties – treaties that these countries have themselves signed.RSF calls on President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah to implement effective measures to protect journalists and it supports this appeal by the Afghanistan Journalists Federation:“We, Afghan journalists and members of the Afghan media, call on all of you at the Brussels Conference to make the Afghan government more accountable in providing information, implementing laws and regulations to support free media and to ensure the safety of journalists. We also reiterate our calls to the international community to support Afghan media on the road to sustainability throughout the decade of transformation.”Afghanistan’s recent history shows that it is impossible to build peace without enforcing justice. The violence against journalists is encouraged by the systematic impunity for those responsible for the violence. RSF points out that murders of journalists are not only crimes against freedom of expression but must also be treated as war crimes and, as such, must be punished severely.Afghanistan is ranked 120th out of 180 countries in RSFs 2016 World Press Freedom Index. News RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan On the eve of a two-day international conference in Brussels on Afghanistan, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reiterates its appeal to the Afghan government and to the governments of participating countries, including the European Union, to defend press freedom, journalists and the media in Afghanistan.

We thank Nellie for her long career of public service and wish her well.”“I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration to be a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve because the likelihood of a prolonged process could have left me in professional limbo for too long,” Liang said in an email, as reported in an article by Bloomberg.The article pointed out that Liang dropped out of her own accord and wasn’t pressured by the White House. “There haven’t been any White House discussions of withdrawing the other pending nominee for a vacancy on the Fed board, Carnegie Mellon University professor Marvin Goodfriend”, according to sources, Bloomberg said.The Fed would have had its first Asian-American, and just the 10th woman to serve on its board in the form of Liang. She was nominated in September. According to The New York Times, several current and former Fed officials applauded Liang’s nomination including Jerome H. Powell, the Fed’s chairman, who encouraged the Senate Republicans to confirm her. As the Senate Banking Committee did not schedule a confirmation hearing in the fall, and Ms. Liang’s nomination expired when the 115th Congress ended this month. Liang has served at the fed for most of her professional life, helping organize stricter postcrisis oversight of the financial industry—the annual “stress tests” to determine whether the nation’s banks could withstand a severe economic downturn—being one of her significant initiatives, the article pointed out. Liang’s nomination caused unease among some Republican lawmakers over her role in helping to construct the post-crisis regulatory structure for banks. That, in turn, has triggered accusations that “Wall Street’s biggest banks were out to block her nomination,” stated Bloomberg.Liang is a fellow at the Brookings Institution and has served as a Fed staff for 30 years. She joined the Fed as a Research Economist immediately after completing her doctorate from the University of Maryland in 1986. Following the financial crisis, she was in charge of the department that monitored financial stability. Liang graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1979. Liang’s decision to withdraw from consideration leaves two vacancies on the Fed’s seven-member board.
