(Photo by Warren Little/Getty Images) “Edinburgh rugby has taken a positive step forward. The player talent is stunning. There’s young guys coming through who are exceptional, but we also have international players that have a burning desire to win, and we saw that today.”Top statsUlster have appeared in just two semi-finals – and have won both. They faced Stade Francais at Ravenhill in 1999, winning 33-27 before going on to beat Colomiers 21-6 in the final. They will face the winner of Sunday’s Clermont v Leinster at Twickenham. Connacht fans will be cheering for an all-Ireland final, as if one of their fellow provinces lifts the trophy, they will earn them a spot in next year’s tournament.ULSTER: Stefan Terblanche; Andrew Trimble, Darren Cave, Paddy Wallace, Craig Gilroy; Paddy Jackson, Ruan Pienaar; Tom Court (Paddy McAllister 77), Rory Best, Declan Fitzpatrick (Adam Macklin 65), Johann Muller (capt), Dan Tuohy, Stephen Ferrism(Lewis Stevenson 77), Willie Faloon (Robbie Diack 73), Pedrie Wannenburg.Not used: Nigel Brady, Paul Marshall, Ian Humphreys, Adam D’Arcy.Try: Wannenburg.

TAGS: Edinburgh RugbyUlster Ulster’s try-scorer Pedrie Wannenburg celebrates with the fansBy Bea Asprey, Rugby World Writer In a nutshellEdinburgh put up a hearty fight, but in a performance that echoed recent Scotland outings, they could not convert their pressure to points. The visitors threw everything they could at Ulster in attack, but mistakes at crucial moments meant they butchered many chances to add to their points tally. Ulster’s scrum dominated that of Edinburgh despite the absence of All Black prop John Afoa, and the Northern Irish province will travel to Twickenham on 19 May to play in their first Heineken Cup final since they won the tournament in 1999.Key momentEdinburgh captain Greig Laidlaw stripping the ball off Ulster’s No 8 Pedrie Wannenburg, a man twice his size, in the third quarter of the game epitomised the Scots’ determination. It wasn’t to turn the game the around for the visitors, but the No 10 inspired his team to keep the pressure on until the final whistle, and national coach Andy Robinson will have been delighted with his gritty performance.Star manUlster were never short of power, but their display was masterminded by Man of the Match Ruan Pienaar (right). The South African oozed class, and his flawless kicking display booted the province to victory.Room for improvementEdinburgh lacked composure in attack, and their mistakes cost them dearly. They spilt the ball a number of times in Ulster’s half, and although they exerted constant pressure they were unable to impose themselves where it mattered – on the score board.In quotesUlster coach Brian McLaughlin: “We’re very pleased to have won but disappointed with the way we played the game. We’re looking forward to getting to Twickenham now, we’re a better rugby side than that.“Our set piece was outstanding throughout the whole game and our defence was rock solid. We turned over the ball in vital moments.“The whole street was red and white this morning, the support has been fantastic, and this has been an unforgettable experience.”Edinburgh captain Greig Laidlaw is stifled by Ulster wing Craig GilroyEdinburgh coach Michael Bradley: “We’re feeling a mixture of disappointment and frustration. We had a number of opportunities deep in their 22, which we overplayed, and we were not able to force our game on Ulster. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Nelson, Sullivan land on Central Florida’s 25 Most Powerful Politicians list

first_img August 2, 2019 at 2:43 pm Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 August 2, 2019 at 2:58 pm Reply Please enter your comment! Apopka Mayor ranks #19 in Florida Politics listApopka Mayor Bryan Nelson and District 31 State Representative Jennifer Sullivan made the inaugural ranking of Florida Politics’ “25 Most Powerful Politicians in Central Florida”. Nelson ranked 19th, while Sullivan was slotted at #14.Apopka Mayor Bryan NelsonAt the top of the list is Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, followed by Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings at #2, District 7 US Representative Stephanie Murphy at #3, Orange County Sheriff John Mina at #4, and District 10 US Representative Val Demings at #5.Nelson, now in his second year as mayor of the second-largest city in Orange County, came into office with a strong showing in the 2018 election, defeating incumbent Joe Kilsheimer with 63% of the vote.“Apopka Mayor Bryan Nelson carries with him the rare trifecta of Central Florida politics of having served in state, county, and city leadership positions,” writes Scott Powers of Florida Politics about Nelson. “(This) gives him a broad base of support and experience in government, which he needs along with his famous sense of humor.”Nelson, 60, was a former Orange County Commissioner and Florida House of Representatives member before becoming mayor of Apopka.District 31 State Representative Jennifer SullivanSullivan is a three-term representative in the Florida Legislature from District 31, which covers much of Lake County and the northwest corner of Orange County including parts of Apopka. She was named the chair of the House Education Committee and also has key appointments to the Ways and Means and the Public Integrity & Ethics committees of the Florida Legislature.“Republican state Rep. Jennifer Sullivan‘s growth to power in Central Florida rose from so many nontraditional roots, she has proven she can be an exception to almost any rule,” writes Powers. “Sullivan was one of the youngest lawmakers ever elected in 2014 and is still younger — at age 27 — than almost all of her colleagues.” I couldn’t get the Democrat debate on tv because of having antenna free tv, and bad weather interference usually in the afternoons and evenings too. I have watched the debates on the internet though. I am disappointed in general, of the debates, with all the attacking each other, and Obama, instead of focusing on taking on Trump. I don’t care for Marianne Williamson, John Delaney, especially, in this debate. Booker and Harris just wanted to fight Biden. I spelled Kamala Harris’s name wrong on here before, and I don’t know why I kept referring to her as Camilla, like Prince Charles’s old lady, but with a K. My mistake. Anyway, I see she was back at her old tricks of attacking Biden for crap an era ago, but she got called out by that Hawaiian candidate who attacked her on her prosecuting marijuana offenders, putting them in jail, and when asked if she ever used weed, she laughed, and other stuff about her prosecutor job that she didn’t want brought up. I guess she got what she deserved in this debate. Oh, and Booker and his Kool Aid backtalk was just stupid, IMO. I still like Elizabeth Warren, the best, and Biden and Mayor Pete B. IMO.

The goal of the program is to help incoming students transition into TCU and learn more about themselves and their personal leadership skills.Layton Spence, one of the Connections directors and a sophomore business major, said Connections will help students learn about their personal style of leadership.“Knowing the different strengths of your leadership skills is a huge thing to go on, even if you don’t get a leadership role in [Student Development Services],” Spence said.Tyler Fisher, the assistant director of the TCU Leadership Center, said the structure of the program emphasizes StrengthsQuest and values to help students perform in college more efficiently. He also said the program uses the TCU mission statement to create SMART goals.SMART goals are goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.Because of the focus on personal leadership development skills and goal setting, Fisher said incoming students will be able to “function in a higher fashion.”Kalaouze said the takeaway from Connections is making friendships with other people.“Life is all about connections,” Kalaouze said.Spence agreed.“I don’t want to use the pun, but you really do get great connections from it,” Spence said.Fisher said he also wanted to emphasize the amount of resources first-year students learn about during Connections.“This is a nice way during those really tricky first two months on campus to find out what resources are available to you as a first-year student,” Fisher said. “It’s a great opportunity to continue and grow your individual legacy and the overall culture at TCU.” Fort Worth resident dedicates life to rescuing dogs Tobi Carter Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Previous articleStudent publishes children’s book, “The Howard Gardner Zoo”Next articleStudy abroad office is sending the most students ever, despite travel alert Tobi Carter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR New bus route eases commute to Denton Twitter TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summerlast_img read more

The defendants have made statements directly accusing western journalists from the BBC and Associated Press who had the courage to cover this particularly terrible event, but also journalists who never went to Andijan,” the organisation said.“ This trial demonstrates once again the pressure brought to bear on those who exposed what really happened that day ” it said.The defendants called the Andijan revolt a “foreign plot” and said, among other things, that the journalists on the spot had been “financed by foreign terrorist organisations”. According to them it was the western journalists who suggested to the accused that they should “imitate a peaceful revolution to create chaos.”One of the defendants quoted by name a Reuters reporters who had not even been there during the uprising. A western diplomat attending the trial said it appeared the defendants were repeating confessions that had been dictated to them.Elsewhere, on 19 September, the Namangan appeal court confirmed a six-month jail sentence against Nosir Zokirov, correspondent for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty for “insulting a member of the Uzbek security services”. Zokirov was one of the first journalists to cover the Andijan uprising. Eight other local correspondents for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty have been harassed by the Uzbek authorities since the events of 13 May.Overnight on 12-13 May 2005, an armed group raided the prison in Andijan to release 23 Muslim businessmen who had been accused of Islamism. The government of President Islam Karimov acknowledged the deaths, as a result of police intervention, of 187 people, the majority of whom it described as “Islamist terrorists”. Human rights activists put the deaths at between 500 and 1,000 and have accused the Uzbek government of staging this trial to conceal its own key role in the massacre.

The petition filed by one Nimesh Pathak had sought a direction to the State Bar Council to invoke the provisions of Advocate Act, 1961 and to prepare an Advocates Welfare Scheme so as to meet the current COVID-19 situation. He had prayed that an Emergency Fund for the young Advocates and financial not well off/needy Advocates must be created. Responding to the petition, Advocate General PK Kaurav pointed out that during the pendency of the petition, the State Government had formulated a Scheme to extend financial assistance to the needy lawyers and clerks etc., which was published in the Gazette of MP on 4th May, 2020 and various amounts had been distributed thereunder. In view thereof, the Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice AK Mittal and Justice VK Shukla granted liberty to the Petitioner to withdraw the petition. However, the Petitioner submitted that there are certain impugned clauses in the said Welfare Scheme that are required to be challenged. The bench thus ordered, “learned counsel for the petitioner stated that he may be permitted to withdraw the present writ petition with liberty to file fresh one on the same cause of action impugning the scheme formulated to extend the financial assistance to the needy lawyers and clerks etc. as there are certain impugned clauses which are required to be challenged. Dismissed as withdrawn with liberty as prayed for.” The District Bar Association of Bhopal has already approached the high court challenging the MP Advocate’s Welfare Scheme for being “irrational”. The scheme, drafted by the MP State Bar Council, is alleged to be drafted in an “improper manner” inasmuch as it does not lay down proper rules, criteria and guidelines for identification of eligible needy Advocates.
