The History of Rugby – Part 2

first_imgSunday Jul 4, 2010 The History of Rugby – Part 2 Today we continue on with the History of Rugby series as Part 2 brings more insight into how the game as we know it was formed and the events that took place along the way. From a twenty a side game as the first international, the a murderous pigs bladder, its well worth the watch. As rugby developed from football, it started out as more of a kicking game. It soon became apparent though that passing through the hands was the way to go, so the ball became more streamlined and developed from a pigs bladder encased in leather to a rubber inside. Off the field, the laws and regulations around the game were always up for discussion, resulting in the breakaway Northern Union becoming Rugby League. Over time, the running game developed, and positions soon became more important and specialist forwards and backs came about. As it spread around the world, the southern hemisphere became a powerhouse as New Zealand and South Africa took to the sport as a religion. It remains the same to this day. Politics and policies soon changed things though, as we’ll see in the next part. Its a fascinating documentary and youll hopefully learn something new by watching. The other parts will be posted soon. Enjoy and have a great rest of the weekend.

The idea of journey as architectural experience, almost cinematographic, generates a sequence of spaces, finding a range of area that link the interior with the exterior in an intense way, involving the rocky surroundings and panoramic views.

NSPCC benefits from spontaneous Facebook cartoon campaign

first_img Howard Lake | 13 December 2010 | News A spontaneous campaign last week on Facebook has resulted in the NSPCC gaining 50,000 new Facebook supporters and around £100,000 in donations in just 48 hours. The number of visitors to the children’s charity’s website also increased by 500% as a result.The NSPCC did not initiative the campaign and is not sure quite who started it. The campaign urged people to change their Facebook profiles to a favourite cartoon character as a sign they were in favour of ending violence against children. Very quickly, many also added messages of support for the NSPCC, some pledging to double amounts of money being raised.The campaign spread worldwide in the run-up to 6 December, and resulted in:· The NSPCC’s Facebook supporter numbers increasing from 65,000 to 115,000.· Over 200,000 visits to the charity’s website.· Total donations of £100,000.· Thousands of people donating on JustGiving pages in support of the NSPCC.· One supporter pledging to double £10,000 raised.· Media and online enquiries and coverage from across the world.Paul Amadi, NSPCC director of fundraising, said: “The speed, scale and impact of the campaign has been quite astonishing – an avalanche of support and donations from people across the world. Social networking campaigns can have amazing reach and while the NSPCC was not behind this particular activity, we have been able to attract many new supporters which will help us in our work to end cruelty to children in the UK.”www.nspcc.org.uk NSPCC benefits from spontaneous Facebook cartoon campaign About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Two cyber-dissidents harassed for calling for Middle East-style protests

Their poor health would only be exacerbated if they were sent back to jail.They are Nguyen Dan Que, 69, an independent journalist, who has been charged with anti-government propaganda and Nguyen Van Ly, a Catholic priest and human rights activist, 64, who has a brain tumour and whose very worrying condition would inevitably suffer if he had to resume serving an existing jail sentence.“We are dismayed to see that arrests and harassment of democracy advocates are continuing after the increase in repression of dissidents caused by January’s Communist Party congress,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Worried about possible contagion from the protests in the Maghreb and Middle East and obsessed with protecting stability at all cost, Hanoi is determined to silence its outspoken citizens and reinforce online censorship.”Que was arrested in Ho Chi Minh City, in the south of the country, on 28 February for urging the population to “be inspired by the pro-democracy movements in Africa and the Middle East” and to “get rid of the communist dictatorship and to build a new, free, democratic, human and progressive Vietnam.” He was released 48 hours later on condition that he would cooperate closely with the authorities.Reporters Without Borders has learned that Que nonetheless issued a statement on 3 March announcing his refusal to cooperate with the police and denouncing the arbitrary charges brought against him. He was placed under close surveillance when he was granted a conditional release in 2005 after more than 20 years in prison.Father Ly, a member of the Bloc 8406 pro-democracy network, has been under growing pressure from the authorities for calling for Middle East-style protests and for criticising the government in his articles. Sentenced to eight years in prison in 2007, he was granted a 12-month suspension of his sentence so that he could receive treatment for his brain condition.The judicial authorities are supposed to decide on 14 March whether to extend the suspension of his sentence or send him back to prison. Ly has ruled out any possibility of compromising with the authorities, announcing: “I don’t care if I go back to prison (…) if necessary I will go on hunger strike.”Sixteen other netizens are currently detained in Vietnam for expressing their views freely online.last_img read more

Cyber-dissident Du Daobin finally falls victim to permanent threat of reimprisonment

He was released into house arrest on 11 June 2004, when a court convicted him of inciting subversion of the state and sentenced him to three years in prison and four years of house arrest.“Du was living under a permanent threat,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He could have been imprisoned at any time under the sentence he received more than four years ago. He is the third leading cyber-dissident to be imprisoned in the run-up to the Olympic Games, after Hu Jia and Huang Qi.”The press freedom organisation added: “The Chinese authorities fear the influence of these Internet users and find it increasingly difficult to rein them in. We call for Du’s release and the withdrawal of the charges against him.”Aged 43, Du posted many articles online calling for more democracy and freedom of expression in China. Prior to his arrest in October 2003, he posts also called for the release of Liu Di, a young student who was imprisoned for posting messages on online forums advocating democracy in China. She was released on 28 November 2003 after more than a year in prison without being tried.More information about Du Daobin News ChinaAsia – Pacific China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China to go further China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prisonlast_img read more

Independent media hounded by violence and libel suits

first_img Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Follow the news on Thailand Help by sharing this information Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has brought criminal complaints against at least six news media in the space of two weeks, while pro-Thaksin demonstrators have attacked and threatened several journalists. Reporters Without Borders calls for the withdrawal of Thaksin’s lawsuits and an end to the harassment of the independent press. RSF_en Organisation News News ThailandAsia – Pacific April 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent media hounded by violence and libel suits Receive email alerts Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years News Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar May 12, 2021 Find out more News August 21, 2020 Find out more ThailandAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders expressed dismay that Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who has announced his resignation, continues to harass the independent press with criminal cases against at least six journalists and media for “defamation”.The press freedom organisation said it had also recorded seven cases of physical assault, threats and censorship of newspapers on the part of Thaksin’s sympathisers over the past two weeks.”It was, among other things, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s inability to accept the least criticism which brought about his downfall,” it said. “It is appalling that he continues to drag journalists and editors before the courts. We urge the outgoing head of government to withdraw the defamation complaints and bring his supporters in line.”“Thai journalists need to work without interference in this period of political crisis,” added Reporters Without Borders.“One of the first tasks of the next government should be to decriminalise defamation and to bring an end to political and financial harassment of independent media. After several years of interventionism, it is urgent that Thailand acts if it wants to improve the state of press freedom,” it said.Hundreds of journalists rallied in Bangkok on 5 April in response to a call from the Thai Journalists’ Association (TJA) to protest against violence and intimidation. “Some want the media to choose their camp, but our position is to remain rigorous and to report the news fairly,” said TJA official Pattara Khumphitak.Lawyers for Thaksin lodged a complaint for “defamation” on 4 April against the privately-owned daily The Nation which on 20 March carried an article saying that the head of government would not be chairing the committee organising King Bhumibol Aduljadej’s 60th anniversary of accession to the throne. According to the Bangkok Post, the criminal court accepted the complaint against Nation Multimedia Group Plc and its managing editor, Pana Janviroj. The prime minister’s lawyers are calling for a “punishment” to be imposed and for the verdict and an apology to be published over a two-week period.A group of demonstrators, some of them members of the ruling Thai Rak Thai party, on 31 March hurled stones at the offices of the press group Manager Media Group, founded by Sondhi Limthongkul. Supporters of the prime minister accuse him of “lèse-majesté”. He was behind the first demonstrations against the premier.Limthongkul has already had around 40 complaints lodged against him, including one by the head of state, on 4 April. The press boss has counter-attacked by accusing a government minister of defamation. He denies having made offensive remarks about the king, during a meeting on 23 March.Elsewhere, Thai police on 30 March banned the distribution of the October-December 2005 edition of the political magazine Fah Diew Kan under the Press Act of 1944. Police also seized copies of the publication. The authorities claimed the magazine had attempted to spread disorder and violate “moral standards”. In fact the demonstrators had simply loudly read out articles from the magazine. Its editor, Thanapol Eawsakul, said he would appeal to the administrative court.Also on 30 March, thousands of pro-Thaksin demonstrators besieged the premises of the Nation group which publishes the daily Thai-language Kom Chad Luek, accused of having insulted the king and the monarchy. Under pressure, the management sacked the chief editor and suspended publication for five days.The Nation group laid a complaint on 4 April against two Thaksin supporters for “threats” and “false imprisonment”. Around 100 police were deployed to secure the building after further threats were made.On the same day, members of Thai Rak Thai assaulted Prachuab Wangjai, journalist on Nation Channel TV, while he was covering an opposition meeting in Chiang Mai in the north-west.Lawyers for the prime minister said on 23 March they had laid a criminal complaint against four privately-owned newspapers, Manager Daily, Krungthep Tooragit, Post Today and Thai Post. The head of government accuses these media of publishing opposition speeches accusing him of selling off the country’s assets. Thaksin and other close to him have also threatened to lodge 30 complaints against press chief Sondhi Limthongkul.On the same day, Chalermchai Yodmalai, head of morning programmes on Channel 9 television, was dismissed by the management. The previous week, the channel reported that pro-Thaksin demonstrators had attracted only 10,000 people in Chiang Rai in the north. Supporters of Thai Rak Thai then left a funeral wreath in front of Channel 9 offices in the city. June 12, 2020 Find out more to go furtherlast_img read more
