Doran-Jones signs for the Saints‏

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Having quality players in these positions will mean that competition will remain fierce and will also continue to push our standards higher and higher, which we need if we want to stay competing at the top end of the Premiership and in the later stages of Europe.” Doran-Jones (centre) to make the move to Franklins GardensThe 25-year-old prop joins the Saints from Gloucester, where he has played for the last two seasons. Comfortable on either side of the scrum, Doran-Jones was capped by England in the 2009 Autumn Internationals and is in the England Elite Playing Squad currently preparing for the Six Nations. A member of England’s touring party last summer, Doran-Jones has also played non-cap games against the Barbarians, Australia ‘A’ and the New Zealand Maori.Educated at Wellington College, Doran-Jones joined Gloucester from London Welsh, with his previous clubs also including Lansdowne RFC, for whom he played while studying at University College, Dublin, and Leinster, where he spent four seasons between 2003 and 2007.Doran-Jones’s representative career includes caps for England Under-18 and Ireland Under-19 and Under-21, and in addition to his Aviva Premiership Rugby experience in the Cherry and White he has played in the Heineken Cup and in all of Gloucester’s Amlin Challenge Cup pool matches this season.He is excited by the prospect of joining the Saints.  “I played against the Saints in my first game for London Welsh and it’s always been tough playing against them,” he said. “They’ve got a history of having a strong pack and it will be great to be a part of the squad at Franklin’s Gardens. I’m looking forward to getting in and training with the boys. I’ve been with a few of them with England and the banter’s starting already. The likes of Dylan and Courtney and the other guys like Tonga’uiha and Mujati have done really well this season and I want to be a part of that.” “Gloucester has been a great club for me. It’s tough to leave the place where I had my chance. The clubs are similar with great followings and histories and Kingsholm will always be a special place for me. But I’m looking forward to the challenge of moving to Franklin’s Gardens and challenging for my place at the Saints. They are showing where they can be in the current Heineken Cup and I want to be competing at that level week in, week out in the future and improve myself as a player.”Director of rugby Jim Mallinder said that Doran-Jones will be a good addition to the Saints squad.  “Paul is a quality prop who has the added benefit of playing on either side of the scrum,” he said. “As we prepare for a tough Aviva Premiership and European campaign we need players who are flexible enough to play in a variety of positions, and to have props like Paul, Tom Mercey and Brian Mujati who can play at tight and loose-head will only be good for the Saints squad.” TAGS: GloucesterNorthampton Saints last_img read more

Some of her assailants were alleged to be members of the regionally prominent Gardia family, which she had linked to trafficking in women in an article a few days before in the Hindi-language daily Jansatta.”We call on the Mahasamund police to investigate this attack properly so that those responsible can be punished as soon as possible,” the press freedom organisation said. “Das must also be given effective protection so that she can work freely. This attack is all the more worrying as few women work as journalists in Chhattisgarh.”In her report for Jansatta, Das alleged that Sanjay Gardia and his wife Monica Gardia were involved in a ring of traffickers in women being operated under the cover of a centre for impoverished persons.When Das went to the Mahasamund police station to report the attack, the police initially refused to register her complaint. They did so only after a delegation of local journalists went to the police station.

European Union urged to shake off lethargy after seven years of silence since September 2001 crackdown

A visa ban can only be decided by the European Council. Until now, none of the EU’s 27 member countries has agreed to ask the EU presidency to put it on the agenda.On 18 September 2001, President Issaias and his hardline allies in the armed forces and the ruling People’s Front for Democracy and Justice, the country’s only political party, ordered the arrests of some 15 leading personalities who had publicly called for democratic reforms. Around a dozen journalists whose publications had reported their appeal were also thrown in prison.The least expression of criticism or the least suspicion has since then resulted in indefinite imprisonment in one of the many detention centres scattered around the country.None of the detainees is allowed to have contact with their family or a lawyer. Publicly accused on several occasions of being “threats to national security,” they have never been tried and never been able to defend themselves. At least four of the journalists have died in detention, probably in the Eiraeiro high-security camp in the northeast of the country.Reporters Without Borders will participate in a public hearing at the European Parliament in Brussels tomorrow about the strategy the EU should adopt towards the human rights crisis in Eritrea.

Concerns over unfair arrests after anti-corruption drive

first_img Organisation BangladeshAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders today called for the release of three imprisoned journalists. The security forces have in the past few days arrested the publisher of the national daily Janakantha and two local journalists. Both police and the army have been making use of emergency laws.”We are worried that the security forces are confusing the fight against corruption with the crackdown on critics, particularly in the press,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.The gains made in the battle against corrupt politicians, some implicated in serious attacks on the press, should not be turned into a witch-hunt against opponents. We call on the interim government to order the release of all journalists currently imprisoned in the country.”In January, the interim government launched a major anti-corruption campaign which has already led to the arrest of about 60 political figures, 13 of them former ministers, and the son of the former head of government. Those implicated in the attacks on journalists, particularly a former deputy from the Kushtia region, Shahidul Islam, are currently being sought.The army on 7 March arrested Atiqullah Khan Masud, publisher and editor of the daily Janakantha, one of the country’s leading newspapers, at his Dhaka office. More than 200 soldiers and police took part in the raid. After arresting the editor they proceeded to search his home.Two days later, police accused him of “corruption”, “criminal activities” and “tarnishing the country’s image abroad”. He was put in custody for one month under the Special Powers Act of 1974 and the courts have already rejected an initial application for bail.Atiqullah Khan Masud is being held at Dhaka central prison where his family has been allowed to visit him. The management of Janakantha told Reporters Without Borders that he is in good health but depressed by his unfair detention.Khan Masud was at the end of January one of the media editors to openly criticise the interim government’s decision to impose censorship under the state of emergency. “Why were journalists not consulted in advance?” he asked the interim government’s information adviser, Mainul Hosein.Police on 9 March arrested Idris Ali, editor of a local weekly, and M. A. Muhit, correspondent for the national newspaper Jugantor in Moulvibazar district in the north-east, under the State Emergency Ordinance 2007. Security forces confiscated their computers and documents. According to the Daily Star, local politicians laid a complaint against the journalists after they wrote about corruption.Police on 9 February searched the homes of seven journalists in Rupgonj, near the capital, after the publication of articles critical of a police officer.Elsewhere, Mosaddek Ali Falu, head of TV channels NTV and RTV and the newspaper Amar Desh, was arrested on 5 February in the framework of the anti-corruption drive. Three weeks later, a fire of unknown origin ripped through a building in the capital housing all three media. The offices of NTV, RTV and Amar Desh, supporters of the former ruling party, the BNP, were all very badly damaged and three staff members died in the blaze.Meanwhile, journalists and newspaper bosses in the privately-owned press are still being targeted by abusive defamation suits. Mahfuz Anam, Matiur Rahman and Hamrul Hasan of the newspaper Prothom Alo were summoned on 8 March by a court in Rajshahi, near Dhaka, based on a complaint from a local official. Editors and journalists on the dailies Inqilab, Amader Shomoy, Jugantor, Daily Star and Shamokal are also facing defamation cases, which are still punishable in Bangladesh by prison sentences.

HONORING LEWIS: Troy dedicates ‘Lewis’ hall in honor of civil rights leader

first_img Sizemore said Lewis was irritated by the injustices of society but had the grit to become a man of “Good Trouble” and play a key role in the civil right movement and its actions to end legalized racial segregation in the United States. Gibson Vance and Lamar Higgins, members of the Troy University Board of Trustees, also heralded Lewis for his commitment and dedication to bringing equality to all people. Lewis, Vance said, possessed the fruit of the spirit – love, joy, peace and longsuffering – and that spirit reflected back on Troy.Higgins remembered Lewis as one who would not support a cause unless he was willing to risk his all for the betterment of his fellowman. Alabama Congressional representatives Martha Roby and Terri Sewell praised Lewis for his courage and his leadership.“John Lewis was not afraid to be a leader,” Roby said. “He had courage, raw courage.”And his courage and leadership helped bring about progress in racial equality but Sewell said the past cannot be erased.“But we must continue to move forward to ensure that we are on the right side of history and that the best days are ahead,” she said. “The arc of the universe is long but it bends toward justice.”The Lewis family expressed appreciation to Troy University for the high honor that it bestowed on John Lewis on Friday and all the days following. “John Robert Lewis Hall” pays tribute to a leader in the Civil Rights Movement and to a national leader who continued to fight for equal justice for all people throughout his life, Hawkins said. The building was constructed in 1929 and was originally named in memory of Alabama Governor Bibb Graves and was renamed in memory of Lewis in 2020. Lewis was the youngest speaker in the famed 1963 March on Washington and was a key figure in the Selma-Montgomery March that sped the passage of the Voting Rights Act. In 1986, Lewis was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives representing Georgia’s 5th Congressional District and served until his death in 2020. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… You Might Like Friday, November 13, 2020, was a monumental day as Troy University dedicated the most iconic building on its campus to Civil Rights leader, the late John Robert Lewis.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to the Pike County native as the “Boy from Troy” who became not only a leader in the Civil Rights movement but continued to work for equality for all Americans as a member of the United States House of Representatives for Georgia’s 5th Congressional District.Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. said the naming of the storied building was the right thing to do, for today and for eternity. Skip By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Lewis held the honorary Doctorate of Laws from Troy University and Chancellor Hawkins said Lewis never let him forget that, in 1957, he was denied admission to Troy State Teachers College but was so smart he held 32 honorary doctoral degrees.Hawkins said he is proud that today, one-third of Troy University’s student population is African American and that the university has 28,000 African American alumni. He also expressed pride in that Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery was constructed on the site where Parks was arrested in the Montgomery bus boycott. Lewis, Hawkins said, led a group of U.S. Congressional members on a tour of the Rosa Parks Museum.The John Robert Lewis Hall Dedication provided Troy University students and university leaders with an opportunity to acknowledge Lewis’ contributions and also recognize members of his family.Titus Sizemore, Alpha Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, referred to Lewis as a pearl irritated by the sand.

Alleged robber at Bellagio casino trades gunfire with police on Las Vegas strip

first_imgMGM Resorts International(LAS VEGAS) — An attempted robbery at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas ended in a gunfight between police and the suspect late Friday.The suspect attempted to carjack someone at the valet, but was confronted immediately by four uniformed officers.The man turned and fired at least one shot in the direction of an officer, who was struck in the chest, police said.A second officer returned fire, striking the suspect.“The officer had his bulletproof vest on, which probably saved his life,” Las Vegas Police Department Capt. Nichole Splinter said.He was treated and released, police said.The suspect was also struck in the chest and remains in critical condition.There were two robberies at the Bellagio in 2017. In March 2017, three men in animal masks used sledgehammers to smash their way into a luxury jewelry store before at least one of those suspects was apprehended.In a robbery similar to Friday night, a man was able to make off with money from a poker cage at the Bellagio in November 2017. He was able to get away with an unspecified amount of cash.Almost a year later, that suspect had yet to be caught, according to CardPlayer, a casino gaming news site.The Bellagio, and its famous dancing fountains, play prominently as one of the casinos robbed in the film Ocean’s 11.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
