first_imgWednesday Sep 24, 2014 All Black Conrad Smith on record midfield partnerships and what the future holds Total Rugby caught up with All Black centre Conrad Smith recently to speak about his life as an All Black, his midfield partnership with Ma’a Nonu, and what the future holds as we head into another Rugby World Cup year. He’ll be 33 next month, but hopes to be in England to defend the title.Smith has played 80 Tests for his country, with a winning rate of an unbelievable 90% – he’s only ever lost 7 times at that level. It’s no coicidence either as Smith, along with midfield partner Nonu, has become an integral part of the team setup.They equalled the record for the midfield partnership with the most Test caps recently, but with Nonu injured, won’t be able to add to that for a while.This interview gives us a nice insight into the mindset of the man that has a law degree to his name.View more archived Player Features hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Player Features Related Articles 28 WEEKS AGO New Zealand rugby pod admit Owen Farrell… 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary… 30 WEEKS AGO The highs and lows of Yoann Huget after he… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Two other journalists attacked, Medvedev promises to protect journalists

first_imgA witness said the attack was premeditated. Two people waited for Kashin at the door of his apartment building. When he arrived, they beat him with a blunt object without taking his money, documents, iPhone or any other personal effects. Under interior minister Rashid Nurgalyev’s control, the Moscow prosecutor’s office opened an investigation into attempted murder. News Reporters Without Borders is deeply disturbed to learn that two other journalists were the victims of physical attacks this past weekend, in addition to Kommersant reporter Oleg Kashin, who was very badly injured in an assault outside his Moscow apartment. Sergei Mikhailov, the editor of the local newspaper Saratovsky Reporters, was beaten by unidentified assailants on 5 November in the southern city of Saratov. His attackers fled at the approach of passers-by and he was not badly hurt. Anatoly Adamchuk, a reporter for the local newspaper Zhukovskiye Vesti, was assaulted near his office in the south Moscow suburb of Zhukovsky on the night of 7 November and was hospitalized with concussion and bruising. Like Kashin, who had recently written about opposition to plans to route the new Moscow – St. Petersburg freeway through Khimky forest, Adamchuk had covered protests against a planned freeway through Tsagovsky Forest.The attack on Kashin has prompted a large number of Russian news media to jointly urge the government to guarantee the safety of journalists and ensure that Kashin’s assailants are arrested and brought to justice. An open letter to President Dmitry Medvedev posted on the Openspace.ru website has been signed by more than 2,000 people.President Medvedev yesterday pledged that those responsible for the assault on Kashin would be punished regardless of their status or position in society. He also said the Russian state would henceforth pay more attention to journalists. The United States, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the European Union have all urged the Russian authorities to make good on these promises.Reporters Without Borders hails President Medvedev’s statements and joins all those who are pressing the authorities to protect journalists and bring their attackers to justice. Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Organisation May 21, 2021 Find out more “By saying ‘the criminals must be found and punished,’ President Medvedev seems to be taking the matter seriously,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “We hold him to his word and we urge the authorities to put all the necessary conditions in place for the police and judicial authorities to be able to work independently and get results.” Julliard added: “The culture of impunity has prevailed for too long. No crime of violence against journalists has been solved since the start of the past decade. A month ago, we marked the fourth anniversary of journalist Anna Politkovskaya’s murder and we sadly noted that the investigation has gone nowhere. We hope the president’s statement will be transformed into action. News November 9, 2010 – Updated on November 6, 2018 Two other journalists attacked, Medvedev promises to protect journalists RussiaEurope – Central Asia Kommersant editor Mikhail Mikhailin said the attack was without doubt linked to Kashin’s work as a journalist.

News “We are awaiting signs of a real political will on the part of the Russian authorities to defend and ensure respect for the independent press. They should begin by bringing those responsible for acts of violence against the press to justice. They should begin by respecting the rule of law. Kashin is clearly one of his generation’s most brilliant and courageous journalists. Our thoughts are with him and his family.” to go further Reporters Without Borders is horrified and appalled by a brutal attack on leading journalist Oleg Kashin outside his Moscow home on the night of 5 November, in which he sustained fractures to the jaw, legs and fingers, and concussion. Kashin, who works for the Moscow-based daily Kommersant, underwent emergency surgery and was placed in an artificial coma. Kashin was recently threatened by the pro-Kremlin youth movement Molodaya Gvardia, whose website called for him to be “punished” for interviewing one of the young men involved in ransacking the Khimki municipal administrative building in July. After the attack on Kashin, Molodaya Gvardia voiced support for him. Mikhail Beketov, editor of the Khimki-based newspaper Khimkinskaya Pravda and outspoken critic of local municipal corruption and the irregularities surrounding the Khimki forest freeway project, was himself attacked and severely beaten outside his home in 2008. He lost a leg and the use of his hands and has irreversible neurological damage.

Reporters Without Borders calls for immediate release of Maka Gbossokotto

The prosecution has demanded a year-long prison sentence and a fine.The arrest and trial of Gbossokotto, who edits the independent daily Le Citoyen and is also the worldwide press freedom organisation’s local correspondent, showed that the promise to decriminalise press offences made when the present government took power in March 2003 was “very far from being fulfilled,” Reporters Without Borders said. It called for the charges against him of libel and “public insults” to be dropped. “The prosecutor’s call for harsh punishment is totally against press freedom and makes the government of President François Bozizé one of the most repressive regimes in Africa towards the media,” it said.”It is quite unacceptable that this journalist, arrested on 8 July, should be held in custody for a month until the court announces its verdict on 9 August, when he might be released. Only his immediate release and the dropping of all charges against him can put an end to this scandalous matter.”Gbossokotto is being sued by Jean-Serge Wafio, the former head of the state electricity company Enerca, for writing that he had stolen company funds. Wafio was sacked by Bozizé last month for bad management.Judge Trinité M’Bango-Sangafio refused to release the journalist on bail when he appeared before him in Bamako on 16 July. Gbossokotto’s lawyers, including Nicolas Tiangaye, head of the country’s provisional parliament, the National Transition Council (CNT), called for his release and said the case was technically flawed.

Col. Parfait Mbay threatened the independent media on 7 July in two official statements. The first condemned “recent serious excesses by independent newspapers, some of which are being used by certain Central African citizens to misinform and manipulate people and discredit top government officials and other citizens.” Editors should “tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, while remembering that not every truth should be told.” In the second statement, he threatened the same editors that he would close their newspapers if they did not comply by 15 July with press law rules for permission to publish.

The seasonality of Antarctic sea ice trends

first_imgAntarctic sea ice is experiencing a weak overall increase in area that is the residual of opposing regional trends. This study considers their seasonal pattern. In addition to traditional ice concentration and total ice area, temporal derivatives of these quantities are investigated (‘intensification’ and ‘expansion’ respectively). This is crucial to the attribution of trends, since changes in forcing directly affect ice areal change (rather than ice area). Diverse regional trends all contribute significantly to the overall increase. Trends in the Weddell and Amundsen—Bellingshausen regions compensate in magnitude and seasonality. The largest concentration trends, in autumn, are actually caused by intensification trends during spring. Autumn intensification trends directly oppose autumn concentration trends in most places, seemingly as a result of ice and ocean feedbacks. Springtime trends are reconcilable with wind trends, but further study of changes during the spring melting season is required to unravel the Antarctic sea ice increase.last_img read more
