Metuisela Talebula brilliant finish to 90m try in London Welsh thrashing

first_imgMonday Oct 27, 2014 Metuisela Talebula brilliant finish to 90m try in London Welsh thrashing Fijian flyer Metuisela Talebula has been making his mark in the Top 14 this season with some sensational performances for Bordeaux, and on Thursday night he continued that fine form against London Welsh in the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Talebula was actually the top try scorer in the French Top 14 last season, so the former Fiji Sevens star knows his way to the tryline, and given a sniff, usually finishes with aplomb.Bordeaux-Begles recently played some beautiful rugby to thrash Castres 59-7, so they’re in with a real shout this year and their 52-20 win away at the Kassam goes some way to confirm that.They scored four first half tries, with Lucas Blanc, Talebula, Clement Maynadier and Matthew Clarkin all scoring to give them an imposing 31-6 lead at the half time break.“There are no margins at the top of the Aviva Premiership or the Top 14. You have got no room and once you make a mistake you are toast basically,” said London Welsh head coach Justin Burnell.By the end of the match they’d scored seven in total, with Pierre Bernard adding to his points with the boot, and Darly Domvo scoring twice, thanks also to Talebula.The latter’s finish to his first half try was outstanding, as Bordeaux counter-attacked from a turnover deep in their half, before he sprinted away then put the ball on the boot twice and collected to dot down in the corner in one motion.It was supreme control and another example of the kind of talent Fijian rugby regularly produces.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Other sites run by independent journalists have also been blocked and some ISPs have anonymously admitted to Reporters Without Borders they received daily lists of websites to be censored. “Such lists are not new but the frequency of such action is significantly increasing control of the Internet,” the organisations said. Cyber-feminists Maryam Hosseinkhah and Jelveh Javaheri were summoned on 18 May to appear before a revolutionary court in Teheran for their online activities, including their work with the Tagir Bary Barbary (Change for Equality) site. Hosseinkhah was interrogated and Javaheri is due to appear on 2 August.Communication and information technology minister Mohammad Soleimani meanwhile said on 17 May that a 56K Internet connection was “quite sufficient” for the country’s Internet users.Iran is 166th in the 169-country Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is also on the organisation’s Enemies of the Internet list.

Nigerian investigative journalist forced to flee after massacre disclosures

During the day, it is impossible to end some calls without switching the phone off.Isine, who has won several awards, no longer trusts the cell phones which he believes are compromised and bugged because of his investigations into massacres carried out in the south of Kaduna State in the north of the country.Editor of the The Next Edition, one of the leading investigative news websites in the country, he has moved away from his home after threats over his work became intolerable. Since he began his investigations, the fourth and final of which was published on 23 January, several of his sources have died.A Head of district was murdered in his home. A lawyer and a former governor died suddenly. All of them had pointed out in Isine’s report the murky role played by the the state governor Malam Nasir El-Rufai in the intercommunal clashes in which several hundred people have been killed in the past year.“After what happened to some of his sources, the journalist has many reasons to worry and to take precautions so he doesn’t meet the same fate,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“In view of his important contribution in highlighting and reporting these massacres in order to bring them to an end, we ask the Nigerian authorities to guarantee his safety and to make every effort to allow him to carry out his work without fear of reprisals.”The Kaduna state governor did not respond to requests by RSF for information about the safety of Isine and his sources.“Here, not so many journalists have the guts to undertake this kind of in-depth investigations because they fear for their lives,” said a local reporter who asked not to be identified.”It’s almost impossible to balance your story because authorities do not respond or use intimidation to prevent you from investigating”.Kaduna is among the states to have recorded the most arrests of journalists in recent years and criticism of the governor sometimes leads to prison.Overall, Nigeria had become one of Africa’s most dangerous countries for journalists. Since 2019, three reporters have been shot dead with total impunity during protests or rallies that have been violently broken up by the security forces. Despite proceedings launched by the families and supported by civil society organizations including RSF, no perpetrators have been identified and brought to justice.Nigeria is ranked 115th of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index compiled by RSF.

Appraisals are of paramount importance in pushing through loan applications, as financial institutions will not supply a mortgage to a prospective buyer for more than the property is valued by the appraisal.The advisory offers two possible solutions for effected areas to deal with the shortage. The first and most ideal option is for states to issue temporary practice permits, which would allow appraisers licensed in other states to work in areas experiencing shortages. Out-of-state licensed appraisers must apply to the wanting state’s regulatory agency for their temporary permit. Per Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act, states are barred from requiring extreme licensing requirements or charging excessive fees in order to secure the permit.States experiencing shortages are also encouraged to engage in reciprocity with one another and recognize each state’s appraisal certification and licensing, allowing out-of-state appraisers to perform duties for federally related transactions without having to go through all the red tape.The second, and more complicated and cumbersome option would be for the Appraisal Subcommittee (ASC) to issue temporary waivers of any state imposed certification or licensing requirements to facilitate the timely completion of federally related transactions.In order for the ASC to consider a temporary waiver, a federal bank regulatory agency, regulated credit union or financial institution, or state appraisal licensing agency must submit a request and provide evidence of the shortage of appraisers in a certain geographic area and also prove that the shortage is the cause of “significant delays.”This route is also the more time consuming of the two, as the ASC is required to post a public notice on the Federal Registrar and has 15 days to post its decision. And, even if the temporary waiver is approved by the ASC, its validity is still up to the discretion of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), who has the final say.There is, however, one benefit for institutions to attempt to obtain a temporary waiver, which is that, once approved, the waiver will apply to all regulated institutions in that geographical area regardless of which institution submitted the application. The ASC determines how long the waiver will be valid, and may terminate the waiver if the shortage ebbs. Financial institutions may also petition for an extension if the shortage persists after the waiver’s expiration, although that, once again, will be subject to review by both the ASC and the FFIEC.

first_img NPHET ‘positive’ on easing restrictions – Donnelly RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Three factors driving Donegal housing market – Robinson Twitter Frontline workers say they expect thousands to turn out in Tallaght in Dublin this evening for a rally against pay-cuts.It comes as talks get underway this morning between union and government reps in a bid to hammer out a new deal on public sector pay.Gardai say they are withdrawing ‘goodwill’ gestures from next Friday and will not be using their own cars or phones for duty.John Redmond is from the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) which is part of the 24/ 7 Frontline Alliance.He says he hopes this evening’s protest sends a clear message to the government.”They need to realise that we are providing essential emergency frontline services; our people are out facing dangers day in, day out – during the nights (and) at weekends” he said.”The idea that somehow Sunday or working nights is no different than working days – it’s just not true” he added.

Further, the petitioner has already deleted the post and begged apology for his conduct.”In such a backdrop, it was the considered opinion of the Court that custodial detention of the accused petitioner was not warranted.Accordingly, interim bail granted earlier to the petitioner was made absolute. Thus, the Anticipatory Bail Application stood disposed of.Notably, the Kerala High Court on 22nd September (Tuesday) granted anticipatory bail to Christian preacher who has been accused of promoting religious enmity.The Single Bench of Justice Ashok Menon was hearing the pre-arrest bail plea of an applicant, who has been arrayed as an accused in Crime No.582/2020 of Ernakulam Central Police Station for having allegedly committed offences punishable under Section 153A of the IPC.Also, while hearing a bail application, wherein the Applicant was accused of preparing posters and pasting them at several places, thereby creating or promoting hatred or ill will between two religious groups, the Kerala High Court granted the Bail to the Applicant on Monday (28th September).The Bench of Justice Ashok Menon was of the view that if the poster allegedly published by the accused is perused, it cannot be said that the intention of the accused was to promote ill will or hatred between two communities.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
