Face-off: Should there be fewer substitutions in rugby?

first_imgThis debate first appeared in the issue of Rugby World out in January.Keep up to date with the Six Nations on Rugby World’s social media channels, on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A big debate that first appeared in the issue of Rugby World out in January. “The notion that rugby will become more attractive by decreasing substitutions 
is short-sighted. Modern demands on players and the ever-increasing calendar has added to the reliance on the bench. Some coaches use this better than others and in the process, brought about a new breed of player: the “super sub” or “impact” player who can ignite an attack.“This is great for rugby – it’s allowed a type of player to entertain us on a stage he/she might not have previously. If subs numbers were decreased, this type of star would be the first to be cut, with specialised positions taking preference, a contradictory move.“Science shows that most soft-tissue injuries happen in the latter part of the game. Trauma injuries also increase due to fatigue and slower reactions in the tackle and scrum. Specialists – ie, the front row – can’t be compromised on.“Everyone wants to contribute. It’s hard to juggle motivations if some weeks they are less likely to come on and fight to get a start.”center_img Face-off: Should there be fewer substitutions in rugby?Paul GraysonEx-England ten turned pundit“I’ve long thought the number of subs available in rugby was a subject for discussion. I tweeted about it in March and had some interesting responses to my idea of having as many subs on the bench as we do now, but only being able to use three. My basic question is that as players get bigger, impacts more fierce and injuries more prevalent, how do you reverse the trends?“My answer is to replace the search for more power with a need for more endurance. If it’s an 80-minute exercise for a dozen of your team – if all backs go the distance, five forwards do too – you get rid of the 50- or 30-minute monsters.“You also reduce the impacts without fresh meat to go berserk for a few minutes. Set-piece is crucial and specialists would populate the bench so uncontested scrums are not an issue, nor collapsed scrums. With little space these days, fatigue creates space. This also brings back the one-on-one contest for 80 minutes against your opposite number.”BJ Botha Former Springboks prop Stacked pack: The Bok benchwas strong at the RWC (Getty Images) last_img read more

Breve historia de la OTAN

first_img16 de julio — Solo porque el presidente estadounidense, un misógino, xenófobo y enemigo de la humanidad abiertamente racista, criticara a la OTAN (Organización del Tratado del Atlántico Norte) en la Cumbre de Bruselas del 11 al 12 de julio, alguien podría tener la falsa impresión de que se debe defender a esta organización. Pero no es así.Cualquiera que sea el objetivo a largo plazo de Donald Trump con respecto a la OTAN, suponiendo que lo tenga, esta alianza es enemiga de los pueblos del mundo como siempre lo ha sido.Un vistazo a sus miembros y su historia muestra el por qué.La OTAN consiste de …Durante la mayor parte de su historia, la OTAN ha incluido a todas las principales potencias imperialistas excepto a Japón y Australia. Los miembros han sido Estados Unidos, Francia, Bretaña, Italia y Canadá desde 1949 en adelante, y Alemania desde 1955, cuando era Alemania Occidental. Estos seis, más Japón conforman los países del G7 que actualmente establecen reglas económicas para el mundo.La OTAN también incluye a países más pequeños que son antiguos miembros del mundo imperialista, como España, Portugal, Bélgica, los Países Bajos, Luxemburgo, Noruega, Dinamarca y la pequeña Islandia. Grecia y Turquía también están en la OTAN.Los principales poderes de la OTAN son los países imperialistas porque sus clases gobernantes corporativas y financieras, principalmente a través de sus bancos, controlan la mayor parte de la riqueza mundial. El capital bajo su control se usa para explotar la mano de obra y extraer recursos en todo el mundo.Hasta la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Bretaña y Francia gobernaron directamente vastas partes de África y Asia en forma de colonias. Alemania también tenía colonias, pero menos que esos dos poderes. Los Países Bajos, Bélgica e incluso la pequeña Dinamarca tenían colonias más grandes que ellos.Los principales países de la OTAN ahora poseen tecnologías de vanguardia, controlan los medios de comunicación, fabrican armas poderosas y son los más fuertemente armados. Venden armas al mundo, pero guardan las armas más avanzadas para ellos.A través de su control del mercado mundial, los intercambios de divisas y la banca, y con sus ventajas tecnológicas, estos siete países ahora oprimen directa e indirectamente a la mayor parte del mundo.De los países del G7, el imperialista Estados Unidos, con la economía nacional más grande y con la mayor potencia militar, es el más peligroso para la humanidad.El papel de la OTAN 1949-89Durante la primera mitad del siglo 20, estos estados depredadores pugnaron por mercados, colonias y materias primas. En su rivalidad, lanzaron dos guerras mundiales que juntas mataron de 100 a 200 millones de personas, en su mayoría trabajadoras/es, campesinas/os y otras/os jornaleros.Después de que terminó la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la clase de saqueadores y ladrones que gobernaba a esos países vio que, mientras luchaban entre sí, un tercio de la humanidad se había liberado de su control.La Revolución Rusa, que puso fin a la Primera Guerra Mundial, también sobrevivió la embestida de la Alemania nazi. La Segunda Guerra Mundial terminó en Europa con las revoluciones yugoslava y albanesa y la marcha del Ejército Rojo Soviético a Berlín. En 1949, toda China fue liberada y la mitad de Corea. El pueblo vietnamita estaba ganando contra los franceses.Había una guerra civil revolucionaria en Grecia. Los regímenes coloniales comenzaban a desmoronarse alrededor del mundo. La clase trabajadora en Francia e Italia parecía estar a punto de tomar el poder en estos países donde los partidos comunistas habían organizado la resistencia armada de las/os trabajadores contra el fascismo.Así que en 1949, Washington, la potencia imperialista dominante más fuerte, fundó entonces la OTAN para evitar las revoluciones obreras en la Europa occidental que estaba devastada por la guerra y para enfrentarse a la Unión Soviética y sus aliados en Europa del Este. Fue en 1955 que la Unión Soviética estableció el Pacto de Varsovia con sus aliados en Europa del Este.El papel reaccionario de la OTAN incluyó la planificación de un golpe militar en Grecia en 1967 que duró hasta 1974. Se sospecha que participó en una “estrategia de tensión” de 1968-82 en Italia, cuando agrupaciones derechistas clandestinas en la clase dominante y el estado italiano llevaron a cabo ataques terroristas. En 1975, la OTAN envió buques de guerra para intervenir en Portugal y evitar que la clase obrera de allí abriera una lucha por el socialismo, después de que una revolución derrocara al régimen fascista.El presidente de los EUA siempre elige al comandante de la OTAN, y el general a cargo siempre es del Pentágono. Por lo tanto, la OTAN siempre ha sido una herramienta de la política imperialista de los EUA. Y sigue siendo así, a pesar de las quejas de Trump.Nueva función de la OTAN: policía capitalista mundialEn 1990, durante las negociaciones entre los líderes soviéticos y estadounidenses para poner fin a la Guerra Fría, Washington prometió no mover la OTAN hacia el este. El propósito declarado de la OTAN hasta ese momento era “defender a las naciones miembros, de las amenazas de los países comunistas”. Este propósito aparentemente terminaba con la inminente desintegración de la Unión Soviética en 1991 y la disolución del Pacto de Varsovia.Pero desde 1991, lejos de disolver la OTAN, Washington ha insistido en que el pacto militar se expanda, mientras permanece bajo el mando de los EUA.La política de los EUA convirtió a la OTAN en un tipo de fuerza policial imperialista. Ya no confinada a Europa, la OTAN se ha convertido en una fuerza de intervención mundial al servicio de los monopolios transnacionales que explotan el trabajo y los recursos mundiales.Polonia, Hungría y la República Checa se unieron a la OTAN en abril de 1999. Esta expansión coincidió con la guerra aérea de EUA-OTAN en los Balcanes que destruyó el país soberano y multinacional de Yugoslavia.Los imperialistas aún mienten sobre las razones de la guerra en Yugoslavia, alegando que era para defender a Kosovo, un área de mayoría musulmana. En su libro “Waging Modern Warfare” (Librando una guerra moderna), el comandante de la OTAN en 1999, el general Wesley Clark, admitió que la guerra de Kosovo era “diplomacia coercitiva … mucho más como las intervenciones de una época anterior”, es decir, antes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, en un momento en que las potencias imperialistas ocuparon abiertamente colonias y protectorados. (p.418)La ex Yugoslavia, que una vez fue un estado que representaba a unos 20 millones de habitantes de los Balcanes, fue dividida en siete mini estados que son presa fácil para el imperialismo de Europa Occidental y Estados Unidos.Otras intervenciones militares de la OTAN siguieron, lideradas por EUA. Los EUA invadieron Afganistán en Asia Central a partir de 2001, utilizando el pretexto del ataque del 11 de septiembre e invocando el Artículo 5 de la carta de la OTAN que llama a la defensa colectiva. La ocupación continúa con la ayuda de la OTAN.En 2011, con el más frágil de los pretextos, la OTAN atacó y destruyó Libia. Ese mismo año, los países de la OTAN también sabotearon y derrocaron al gobierno de Damasco en Siria.La destrucción que provocaron estas intervenciones ha exacerbado horriblemente la crisis de refugiadas/os que continúa en la actualidad.Francia y Alemania rehusaron unirse a la invasión EUA-Bretaña a Irak en 2003 porque sus gobiernos lo consideraban un esfuerzo peligroso e imprudente. Por esa razón, la OTAN no comenzó ese desastre. Más tarde, sin embargo, muchos estados de la OTAN ayudaron a la ocupación de Iraq, a pesar de que era un secreto a voces que el pretexto de EUA para la guerra – la existencia de las “armas de destrucción masiva” iraquíes – era una mentira.La última expansión de la OTANBulgaria, Estonia, Letonia, Lituania, Rumania, Eslovaquia y Eslovenia fueron admitidas en la OTAN en 2004. Albania y Croacia se adhirieron a la alianza en 2009. Ahora hay 29 miembros, además de otros países como Suecia que tienen una relación especial con la OTAN, y Colombia que es el primer socio global en América Latina.Los apologistas de la OTAN afirman que la alianza defiende la libertad y los derechos humanos. Por el contrario, el papel de la OTAN ahora es reconquistar aquellas áreas del mundo que se habían independizado del imperialismo durante la existencia de la Unión Soviética.Para enfrentar la embestida del imperialismo estadounidense, es necesario decir “¡Abajo Trump!”, e igualmente “¡No a la OTAN!”Catalinotto, editor auxiliar del periódico Workers World-Mundo Obrero, co-editó el libro “Hidden Agenda: U.S./NATO Takeover of Yugoslavia”, Nueva York: International Action Center, 2001.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

State Fair Board President Uhl Receives Sagamore of the Wabash

first_img State Fair Board President Uhl Receives Sagamore of the WabashIf you haven’t made your way yet to the Indiana State Fair, you have a little over a week to get there to enjoy the food, the free concerts, the rides, and the animals. Many people and much hard work goes into preparing each year for the fair. Outgoing Indiana State Fair Board President Todd Uhl explains that it’s a year-long process for the ISF staff and board members.“We love the Indiana State Fair, so it’s not really a job. It takes a lot of time. We have a meeting a month plus we’re up here for the 17 days of the fair. In my case, I’m here 10 days before and three or four days afterwards, but it’s just an amazing place. We’re here to teach agriculture education and we work hard at that, and it’s just a joy to be able to put on the Indiana State Fair.”Uhl is in his 8th and final year serving on the State Fair board of directors. For his commitment to the fair, Governor Eric Holcomb presented Uhl with the state’s highest civilian honor, the Sagamore of the Wabash award. Uhl told Hoosier Ag Today that he was shocked to receive the award and grateful.“To receive it from Governor Holcomb, such a class act, that just means so much more, but I had no idea that I was getting that award.”Uhl says even though he won’t be on the fair board, he will certainly still be around volunteering or becoming an employee of the fair to participate in some way. Uhl says if all else fails, “I cut a hole in the back fence so I can sneak in next year.”The fair concludes on Sunday, the 18th.

Donald Griffin “I honestly had no idea we had a campus dietitian,” junior music education major Alex Kilcoyne said. “I think students would use [the dietitian] more if they knew we had one.”Mathes wants students to know that she is available to all students.“I want them to know that my services are completely complementary,” Mathes said. “ I will talk to anybody about any nutrition related concern.”Food allergies, eating disorders and exercise concerns all fall under things Mathes said she addresses with students.“There may be students that I have to refer out because they are beyond my scope of practice,” Mathes said. “However, if I can be their starting point, I would be thrilled.” Donald Griffin is a senior journalism major and serves as the Executive Editor for TCU360. He just returned from a semester in Washington D.C. where he interned for the Center for Strategic and International Studies. In his spare time, he enjoys playing TCU club volleyball, competing for TCU Forensics and giving side-eye during daily conversation. Library makes study space changes for finals week ReddIt Linkedin Twitter printThe TCU Health Center added a new campus dietitian to its staff to help address the dietary concerns of students.Lindsey Mathes, from Buffalo, New York, now serves as the TCU Campus Dietitian in order to help aid the dietary concerns of Horned Frog students.Mathes said she left a desk job in 2007 because she wanted to be involved in the health of society. After earning a degree from the distance dietetics program at Kansas State University and receiving her license, Mathes came to TCU on Aug. 9.“TCU is seeing more students with dietary restrictions and food allergies, according to Director of Operations of TCU Dining Services Michael Dahl,” Mathes said.There was uncertainty for these students and parents about who to contact about dining hall concerns. Mathes now serves as that point of contact.“Students will come to me and say ‘I have celiac. I’m afraid to eat in the dining halls because of cross-contamination,’” Mathes said.In addition to seeing students with dietary restrictions, Mathes said she sees students with general dietary concerns.“The ‘freshman fifteen’ phrase continues to exist,” Mathes said. “Some are finding [they’re] gaining weight and don’t know how to balance their diets.”Mathes provides students with tips on balancing their diets and living healthier lives.TCU Campus Dietitian Lindsey Mathes said these three tips will help college students to maintain a healthy lifestyle during their time at TCU.

Suspended prison sentences for four Moroccan journalists

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the absurd six-month suspended prison sentences and fines of 10,000 dirhams that a court in the Moroccan capital, Rabat, passed today on four journalists for covering a parliamentary commission’s debate about the Moroccan Retiree Fund’s deficit. News June 8, 2021 Find out more The four journalists – Mohammed Ahdad of the newspaper Almassae, Abdehak Belchkar, who is Akhbar Alyawm’s Rabat bureau chief, and Eljarida 24 reporters Kawtar Zaki and Abdelilah Sakhir – were prosecuted as a result of a complaint by the speaker of the Moroccan parliament’s upper chamber, known as the House of Councillors.“Imposing suspended prison sentences on journalists who just did their job as reporters is completely unwarranted,” RSF said. “This verdict is unjustified because it is based on a law specific to the functioning of the House of Councillors that criminalizes the publication of information about the work of its commissions. We point out that Morocco has had a new press law since 2016 that abolishes prison sentences for journalists.”Morocco is ranked 135rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

They might not know the road and they are overtaking trucks at 100kph. Something must be done about this section of road. Reduce the speed limit at least.“People use the path alongside the road, which is at the same level, for walking and staying fit. We are trying to promote healthy living but someone could be sucked under the trucks very easily,” he warned.Cllr Lynch called for works on traffic calming measures to be prioritised in Clarina as a matter of urgency.Senior Engineer for Limerick City and County Council, Vincent Murray said he understood Cllr Lynch’s frustration and explained that speed limit bye-laws would be reviewed this year.

Limerick School Shines on St. Patrick’s Day

A fantastic, diverse line-up of well-known personalities, including actor Dominic West, and actor/writer Malachy McCourt feature in a new video released by Limerick Civic Trust to mark St. Patrick’s Festival.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The St. Patrick’s Festival ‘Love Limerick’ video captures faces and voices strongly associated with Limerick, including Sean-Nós rapper Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Richard Lynch of, musician Emma Langford, President of UL Kerstin Mey and owners of ‘Dolans’ Live Music Venue and Bar’ Mick and Valerie Dolan. One thing each personality has in common is that they all share a strong passion and grá for Limerick. Despite this star-studded video, the people who may have stolen the show, certainly our hearts were the students of the Mid West School for the Deaf who appeared in the second video released by Limerick Civic Trust.Given its’ small size, the entire school was able to take part in wishing the world a Happy St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Sign Language. Despite a very busy first week back to school, their dedicated teachers arranged for the students to come to school in green clothes, with flags and banners galore!The students even took the time to create green hearts to symbolize virtual hugs, which they waved proudly (alongside a few Limerick flags) at the end of the video.
