David Lemi runs circles around Bath for this superb try

first_imgTuesday Sep 23, 2008 David Lemi runs circles around Bath for this superb try A few weeks back in the first round of the Guinness Premiership in England, Bath took on Bristol at the Memorial Ground, a venue at which they hadn’t won at since 1998. Despite scores being tied at the break and Bristol matching them in most facets of play, Bath were too strong in the second half, and came out eventual winners 33-20.One of the best moments of the game, and perhaps the season, came shortly before the halftime break from little Samoan bullet, David Lemi.Lemi, who weighs in at 75kg’s, is one of the smallest professional players around. That lack of size does nothing to deter him though, as he has had two successful seasons with Bristol, coming out top try scorer in the Guinness Premiership in his second. He’s also a Sevens star of note, and turned out for his country at the Rugby World Cup in 2007.This try scored against Bath in the 37th minute was sublime, and while there were unfortunately no other angles of it at the time, we felt it had to be shared as he beat no less than six defenders with his balanced running and well timed stepping. He then chipped ahead, getting an unfortunate bounce but still managing to time the dive on the ball under the close attention of big Justin Harrison.In a time when players the size of Matt Banahan are turning out on the wing, Lemi is another one of those small, fast guys who is no doubt an inspiration to the smaller wingers out there. If you’re quick, but you’ve ever doubted you can make it because of your size, just watch Lemi in action.

Even disability organisations fail basic Web site accessibility

The results showed that Web accessibility is still not yet embedded within the sector, with only a handlful of Web sites leading the way with fully accessible features.Ethical Media’s ‘Disability 50 Accessibility Report’ found that the majority of disability organisations do not address accessibility needs sufficiently in their Web and digital communications. Advertisement The agency benchmarked the selected Web sites against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) developed by global and industry-led standards body W3C. Significantly, 58% failed to achieve a compliance level, which the WCAG state as ‘compulsory. Head of Digital Communications at Ethical Media, Keith Patton said: “This shows what many people have suspected for some time: that organisations in or supporting the disability sector do not yet adequately consider Web accessibility and usability as a priority in their communications strategies. As a result, significant proportions of users are likely to find it difficult, even impossible, to access information, restricting the flow of communication between any given organisation and its customer base.” The report was able to point to a few organisations that have addressed these issues in an exemplary manner. These include AbilityNet, Action for Blind People, British Council for Disabled People and the Disability Rights Commission. The research was carried out between February and March 2004.center_img Even disability organisations fail basic Web site accessibility AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Habitual hospital bombers

first_imgA fluke or a war crime?U.S. warplanes bombed and destroyed a hospital operated by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières/MSF) in Kunduz, Afghanistan, on Oct. 3. For 65 minutes, an AC-130U gunship circled the hospital, aiming cannon fire and incendiary munitions at its main building, housing the intensive care unit and operating and emergency rooms.Doctors Without Borders staff members at the hospital in Kunduz destroyed by a U.S. military bombardment.Photo: Doctors Without BordersSome 180 patients and staff were inside. At least 12 MSF personnel and 10 patients, all Afghans, were killed; some burned to death. Another 37 were wounded; 33 are still missing as of Oct. 12.To prevent such an attack, hospital staff had repeatedly reported their GPS coordinates to U.S., NATO and Afghan forces. During the bombing, MSF officials called U.S. officials in Kabul and Washington, including the Pentagon’s Joint Staff, pleading for them to stop the airstrikes. But the strikes continued for another 30 minutes.Consequently, MSF left Kunduz. Northern Afghanistan is now without a trauma center to treat war injuries. The aid organization charges the U.S. with committing a war crime in violation of basic human rights, and humanitarian and international law. MSF asserts the bombing was an attack on the Geneva Conventions, which protect civilians, including medical workers, and prohibit bombings of hospitals in war zones. The U.S. ratified these principles in 1955.Hearing a global outcry, the Pentagon changed its story four times. It kept insisting the airstrikes were “accidental.” Now Gen. John Campbell, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, admits the lethal assault was the result of a “U.S. decision made within the U.S. chain of command.” So far the military refuses to provide details.In a rare wartime act, President Barack Obama apologized to MFS. The Pentagon has even offered compensation to victims’ families. This falls far short of earning a pardon for such a heinous crime.MSF strongly repudiates the investigations set up by the U.S., NATO and Afghanistan, and is demanding an independent fact-finding probe of the bombing, under a body set up under Geneva Convention protocols.After 14 years of occupying Afghanistan, the imperialists are still losing. In their desperation, the U.S. ruling class and its NATO allies are ready to commit any crime, violate any international treaty, flout human rights and disregard human life. It’s their standard behavior in the quest for super-profits.Bombing hospitals – nothing new for U.S.U.S. imperialism is a repeat war crime offender, with a long, sordid history of bombing hospitals and killing injured civilians and medical personnel. These were no accidents. They were acts aimed at terrorizing populations and forcing governments to submit. The record speaks for itself.During the 1950s’ U.S. war on north Korea, U.S. warplanes bombed hundreds of hospitals. Pentagon B-52 bombers obliterated Bach Mai Hospital in Hanoi, the largest medical facility in North Vietnam, during the “Christmas bombings” in December 1972.In Mogadishu, Somalia, a U.N. “peacekeeping force” from Turkey and the U.S. bombed a Digfer hospital in 1993.When the U.S. and NATO waged war to dismantle Yugoslavia, NATO launched cruise missiles against a Belgrade hospital and dropped cluster bombs on a Nis hospital in May 1999 — and bombed four other hospitals.The U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan followed the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, ostensibly to pursue Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida. U.S. warplanes then bombed at least six hospitals and clinics in Kabul, Kandahar and elsewhere. In a stunning blow, U.S. planes even dropped a 1,000-pound cluster bomb on a hospital in Herat.In the 2003 “Shock and Awe” bombing campaign against Iraq, Pentagon aircraft bombed a Red Crescent maternity hospital in Baghdad, killing and wounding medics and patients. A year later in Fallujah, U.S. rockets razed the newly built Hai Nazal hospital. U.S. bombs killed 63 staff and patients at the Fallujah Central Health Clinic.With much international support, Doctors Without Borders continues to demand truth and accountability from the Pentagon and Obama administration.More must be done. The filthy-rich U.S. ruling class must pay reparations for its war crimes!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

“TV Anchors Like Peddling Hate To Further Ruling Government’s Narrative”: Dr. Kota Neelima & Sangeeta Tyagi Seeks To Intervene In Sudarshan TV Case

Consequently, the Late Shri Rajiv Tyagi suffered a fatal heart attack on the same day immediately after the debate from which he could not recover and passed away soon thereafter. Thus, the Applicant No. 2 has witnessed and suffered the irredeemable consequences of “Hate Speech” , the plea states.Next, the intervenors state that none of the existing laws in India define the term “Hate Speech”, even though the United Nations in its “Strategy and Plan of Action on Hate Speech”, has defined the term “Hate Speech” as “any kind of communication in speech, writing or behaviour, that attacks or uses pejorative or discriminatory language with reference to a person or a group on the basis of who they are, in other words, based on their religion, ethnicity, nationality, race, colour, descent, gender or other identity factor.” The plea states that there is a steady and almost irreversible trend clearly visible these days, whereby the TV Anchors and TV Debates have debased and degenerated themselves into blatant purveyors of “Hate Speech”. The reasons for this are manifold, the plea reads, adding that the “remote control” of these TV debates is in the hands of the political class in power so as to effectuate a narrative that would suit their “electoral and ideological objectives” and “discredit, demonize and vilify their political and ideological opponents”.Plea reads that Dr. Kota Neelima has endeavoured to research and study this “malady”& has developed an independent, factual and an objective research-based study of the Television News Debates known as Rate The Debate (“RTD”), aim of the study being, to highlight “the colonization of democratic deliberative space on media by vested interests”. “It is a platform which analyses debates conducted on leading mainstream Television News Channels, by examining quantitative and qualitative metrics, and evaluating the content of the debate, and conduct of the anchor and panelists….” – Excerpt of pleaIn this backdrop, the applicant states that it found that Topic of discussion, the opening remarks and the ‘flow’ of the “News Debates” conducted by TV Anchors like Amish Devgan, Arnab Goswami, Anjana Om Kashyap and Ananad Narsimhan is to support the Government’s narrative and discredit, demonize and vilify the voices of the opposition or dissenters.”The obliteration of the basic concepts i.e. distinction between the Nation and the Government of the day is complete. These TV Anchors make a priori assumption that everything done by the Central Government is in the best interest of the nation and anyone who speaks a contrarian voice, is a fortiori, an “anti-national”.”Apropos these trends, the applicants have prayed the top court to take judicial notice of those TV Debates/ TV Anchors peddling “Hate Speeches” under the garb of Article 19 of the Constitution of India and pass appropriate directions under Articles 32, 141, 142, 144 of the Constitution of India to combat this over-arching menace till such time that a suitable law is enacted by the Legislature. “A committee can be constituted for the time being which will be aimed to develop norms for mandatory discussions on chosen topics that reflect the concerns in the Constitution of India in order to establish a healthy atmosphere in the Country. It shall strive to develop a mechanism which will have a rating system for the TV Anchors and News Debates, so as to ensure that News Debates are democratic and fair, and do not pander to divisive agenda” – Excerpt of plea Next Storylast_img read more
