Martin Johnson has placed a huge amount of faith in Northampton back rower Tom Wood, by handing him his Test debut in Cardiff on Friday night, coming in for captain Lewis Moody against Wales.Johnson dare not go into the game without a credible lineout option with both Courtney Lawes and Tom Croft injured so he plumped for in-form Wood.The backs pick themselves but Johnson’s other choices saw him replace Croft with James Haskell, who will also play seven while Louis Deacon’s excellent performances in recent weeks ensures that he won the race to replace Lawes, from Simon Shaw who is on the bench.The bench looks a little unbalance and Johnson will hope that Ben Foden stays fit on Friday as he has no one to take his place in the full-back spot. Subs: Thompson, Wilson, Shaw, Worsley, Care, Wilkinson, Banahan. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England: Foden; Ashton, Tindall (c), Hape, Cueto, Flood, Youngs; Sheridan, Hartley, Cole, Deacon, Palmer, Wood, Easter, Haskell.
“There are no favourites – the winners will be whoever turns up on the night,” says de Carpentier. “But if we get our game right then we’ll be difficult to beat.”Tickets for the JP Morgan Premiership Rugby Series Final on Friday 9 August at the Rec, Bath (7pm) cost just £7.

Chief Warrior: Worcester skipper Richard de Carpentier on the charge during last week’s win against ExeterBy Deputy Editor Alan PeareyTHE BEST way to predict the future is to create it – and Worcester will be going all out to do just that when they line up in the JP Morgan Premiership Rugby 7s Series on Friday night at the Rec.Prior to last week’s opening event, the Warriors had won only one match in the three previous years of the series. At Kingsholm they made a mockery of that statistic, racking up wins against Exeter (26-17), hosts Gloucester (31-19) and Bath (27-14) to win their regional heat at a canter.While no one could doubt the influence of wily ex-England scrum-half Paul Hodgson, the Player of the Round award went to the skipper Richard de Carpentier, a former England Sevens international playing in his first series.“I missed it last year when I was at Leicester because I was injured, so Kingsholm was my first taster,” says the back-row, who arrived at Sixways midway through last season. “Being a Thursday night I wasn’t expecting too much but there were 13,000 there and the atmosphere was amazing.Grafter: Tom Chapman scores against Bath“We trained on the Monday and Tuesday and looked sharp. We feel fresh, at the peak of our fitness, and I wasn’t surprised at our success. I never take to the field expecting anything less than a win.”The likes of Max Stelling, James Stephenson and Tom Chapman typified the grace and graft of a Worcester side with a point to prove. The arrival of Dean Ryan has provided a new focus, the director of rugby demanding that Worcester be competitive every time they take the field, whether that’s with the Cavaliers, Under-18s or sevens team. This summer they spent four weeks training at Malvern College, moving all the equipment down there, ahead of friendlies against Rotherham, Cardiff Blues and the Ospreys.

Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7’s held at Kingsholm Stadium on August 1, 2013 in Gloucester, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) “Dean wants to impose a winning mentality within the club. We’ve had a lot of changes and have worked really hard in pre-season, with everyone trying to impress the coaches. The sevens series has been a goal for us at the end of pre-season.“On one level the series is a fitness blast, with loads of running to raise the aerobic threshold, but we’re also using it to send a message that we’re the new Worcester.“In the past teams have thought ‘It’s only Worcester’ when they face us but we refuse to be a pushover for anyone. We take the field expecting nothing less than a ‘w’ and the boys are gagging to play. We showed a lot of energy at Kingsholm, with players not just scoring tries but chasing back to narrow the angle for opposing kickers.”Summer recruit Cameron Goodhue, a signing from Auckland Blues, will make his Worcester debut on Friday, when the Warriors do battle with fellow qualifiers Gloucester, Newcastle, Leicester, Harlequins and Saracens. Sarries, Newcastle and holders London Irish have won the three series to date.
New Report Explains Impact of Labor Shortages on Agriculture, U.S. Economy Home Indiana Agriculture News New Report Explains Impact of Labor Shortages on Agriculture, U.S. Economy By Gary Truitt – Mar 18, 2014 Previous articleSmartphone to Become Smarter with ‘Deep Learning’ InnovationNext articleCelebrate National Biodiesel Day Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE The report shows the share of fresh fruits and vegetables imported and consumed by American families has grown by 79.3-percent in recent years. It also shows America’s production of fresh produce and consumer demands are out of sync because fresh produce consumption has grown – but production levels have barely grown or declined. Another finding from the report is that U.S. GDP would have been 12.4-billion dollars higher in 2012 if U.S. fresh fruit and vegetable growers had been able to maintain the domestic market share they held from 1998 to 2000. The report also notes labor challenges faced by U.S. farmers and the inadequacies of the H-2A visa program are a key reason why American farmers have been unable to maintain that domestic market share. Labor alone accounts for as much as 3.3-billion dollars in missed GDP growth in 2012 and for 1.4-billion dollars in farm income not realized in 2012. Facebook Twitter The Partnership for a New American Economy and the Agriculture Coalition for Immigration Reform has released a new report titled No Longer Home Grown – How Labor Shortages are Increasing America’s Reliance on Imported Fresh Produce and Slowing U.S. Economic Growth. The report is part of the #iFarmImmigration campaign of more than 70 agriculture groups – including the American Farm Bureau Federation – partnering to express the importance of immigration reform to lawmakers. Partnership for a New American Economy Chair John Feinblatt says American consumers want fresh U.S. grown fruits and vegetables – but U.S. farmers don’t have the labor force available to meet that demand – which means more produce is imported – resulting in the U.S. economy losing millions of dollars and thousands of jobs each year. AFBF President Bob Stallman says more evidence points in the same direction – farmers and consumers both need responsible immigration reform. Source: NAFB News Service SHARE
September 14, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Anti-corruption blogger missing in another post-election setback to go further News Receive email alerts The Mexican blog El 5antuario reported today that its founder, known as Ruy Salgado or “El 5anto”, has been missing for the past six days. “Salgado’s disappearance may be voluntary, but he may have been kidnapped or worse and every day that passes without his reappearing rightly increases the concern about his fate,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If he disappeared voluntarily, he would not be the first person to choose temporary silence. More and more journalists are fleeing the country or the region where they work.”The fact that El 5antuario has been weakened by Salgado’s disappearance is another setback for the free flow of news and information, which has already been dealt a series of blows since last July’s elections. Every effort must be made to locate him or to enable him to resume blogging safely.” Salgado has been missing since 8 September, a day before he was due to attend a speech by left-wing presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico City’s central Zócalo square, at which López Obrador announced he was leaving the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) for the National Regeneration Movement (MORENA).El 5antuario’s supporters and contributors have announced that, if Salgado does not turn up within 48 hours, they will file a missing person’s report with the authorities and provide all the information needed for a judicial investigation.El 5antuario, which did a lot of reporting during the controversial 1 July election, has specialized in covering corruption within government institutions. Some of its contributors work for these institutions and are direct witnesses of the corruption. As a safety measure, El 5antuario’s contributors are anonymous. They use pseudonyms, do not know each other personally and wear masks when they appear in a video. Salgado nonetheless reported that he and his blog had been the target of serious threats in recent months: Reports Blocked mechanismThe day Salgado disappeared, 20 free speech NGOs, including Article 19 and the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), denounced the way of elaboration of the Federal Mechanism for Protecting Human Rights Defenders and Journalists, an entity required under a newly promulgated constitutional reform making violence against freedom of information a federal crime. The NGOs criticized the lack of transparency in the way the government is choosing organizations to be members of the mechanism’s consultative council, and called for the selection to be subjected to public scrutiny. They also accused the government of failing to specify its selection criteria or say what skills it is looking for in the council’s members.The mechanism’s executive coordinator, Omeheira Lopez Reyna, refused to recognize any errors in the methods she is using but told Reporters Without Borders she was ready to reopen talks about the consultative council’s composition. Reporters Without Borders supports the demand for more transparency.

November 23, 2020 Find out more LuxembourgEurope – Central Asia LuxembourgEurope – Central Asia Organisation Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is stunned to learn that French journalist Edouard Perrin was charged in connection with investigative reporting that served the public interest by helping to expose major tax avoidance schemes.Prosecutors said Perrin was charged as part of an investigation into a leak from within the Luxembourg branch of international accounting company PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). He is accused of being “co-author, if not an accomplice, in infractions committed by one of PwC’s former employees,” they said.Perrin, who works for the production company Premières Lignes, did a report for Cash Investigation in May 2012 that had evidence of accords signed between major multinational corporations and the Luxembourg government allowing them to avoid taxes in other European countries.As a result of this report PricewaterhouseCoopers filed a complaint about the theft of confidential documents with the Luxembourg judicial authorities, whose investigation already led to two former employees, including French auditor Antoine Deltour, being charged with “violating business confidentiality.”Perrin is the third person to be charged.“Luxembourg’s judicial authorities are forgetting a key point, which is that exposing the LuxLeaks tax scandal was in the public interest,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “The public had a right to know about Luxembourg’s now famous ‘rulings,’ which allow multinationals to avoid tax. Are the Luxembourg judicial authorities now defying the case law established by the European Court of Human Rights by punishing the journalist who first shed light on the scandal?”Morillon added: “Such judicial methods are unworthy of a country such as Luxembourg. The right to information is a pillar of democracy and should take precedence in a case like this.”It was after his 2012 report that Perrin was contacted by the US-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and they began working together. Their joint investigation resulted in the LuxLeaks disclosures in late 2014 exposing the vast scale of Luxembourg tax avoidance deals with multinationals.Luxembourg is ranked 19th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, falling 15 places in a single year.

A graduate of Harding University, he has covered numerous topics across the real estate and default servicing industries. Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. About Author: Seth Welborn Sign up for DS News Daily Bank of America has announced that it will be investing $3 million in Detroit neighborhoods aimed at helping homeowners and small-business entrepreneurs, as well as another $2.5 million in support of Detroit’s neighborhoods.“Bank of America is committed to investing in the people, places and projects that move Detroit forward. Our neighborhood strategy is providing support that spurs economic mobility for individuals and families,” said Matt Elliott, Michigan market president at Bank of America. “This foundation grant and the business investments we’ve made to support entrepreneurship, create jobs and make homeownership more attainable are helping to drive economic mobility and strengthen Detroit now and for future generations.”Elliot also announced an additional investment of $1.5 million in the 0% Interest Home Repair Program and a $1 million operating grant to Invest Detroit to support its expansion of the Strategic Neighborhood Fund and Affordable Housing Leverage Fund“Detroit’s comeback cannot succeed unless it includes its neighborhoods,” Mayor Mike Duggan said. “That’s why these programs supported by Bank of America are so vitally important. They are helping longtime Detroiters participate in the city’s recovery by helping them start their own business, purchase a new home or renovate the home they’ve lived in since long before our city’s comeback began.”Detroit is facing an increase in demand for affordable housing as the city continues to bounce back from the 2008 crash. Despite holding nearly 81,000 off-market vacant units and a net supply of nearly 25,000 owned units expected by 2045, tight inventory of homes and the lower supply has pushed up prices, Hour Detroit reports.“Detroit was hit so hard by the economic crisis that it needs more developers and people willing to rehab homes than currently available,” Chase Cantrell, Executive Director of Building Community Value told Hour Detroit. “Fixer-uppers abound throughout the city but many don’t want to go through that process. First-time home buyers are not signing up to be developers.”Additionally, Detroit is one of the leading cities in the nation in reverse mortgage foreclosures, according to reporting from Detroit Free Press. USA Today analysis estimates there has been around 1,884 reverse mortgage foreclosures in Detroit between 2013 and 2017, the highest number in the country.
