Putin said the restriction could be extended into next year if the harvest was bad.“We must not allow an increase in domestic prices and must preserve the headcount of our cattle,” the Russian PM said.Russia harvested 97m tonnes of grain in 2009, and it needs 78m tonnes to cover domestic consumption. First deputy Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov stressed that the government had to balance the interests of grain traders with the need to maintain stability on the domestic food market. He said: “We are continually monitoring and analysing grain, feed and seed supplies on the domestic market.” Sharelast_img read more

Nakisa Bidarian, the CEO of Fertitta Capital, has joined the Action Network’s board of directors after the private equity firm led a $17.5m (£13.4m/€15.4m) Series B funding round for the sports betting analytics provider.Fertitta Capital’s chairman and principal is Lorenzo Fertitta, who created what is now the Red Rock Resorts casino empire in the United States alongside his brother, Frank. The duo also established Zuffa, which acquired the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2001 before selling the mixed martial arts series to the WME|IMG agency in 2016 in a deal worth at least $4bn.“Since its inception, Fertitta Capital has focused on uncovering opportunities to leverage our unique combination of experience across sports, media and betting,” Bidarian (pictured) said. “The Action Network is the ideal investment to allow us to fully leverage that experience. We are confident that the company’s best-in-class leadership team, products and content will continue to expand its position as the leading sports betting media company.”The funding round also included some high-profile figures and organisations from the sports industry, including Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs, as well as David Blitzer of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, which owns stakes in the Philadelphia 76ers NBA basketball franchise and the New Jersey Devils NHL ice hockey team.Esports equity firm Bitkraft Esports Ventures, former Twitter chief operating officer Anthony Noto and 6721 Capital, a new fund established by renowned sports marketing executive Casey Wasserman, were among the other investors.The Chernin Group, the media holding company that founded the Action Network in October 2017 ahead of its full launch in January 2018, also reinvested, with Mike Kerns, president of Chernin Digital, confirmed as the new chairman of the company’s board of directors as a result.“The company’s remarkable growth this last year is a testament to our strong leadership team, and this latest financing will help us expand our audience reach and depth of product offerings for years to come,” Kerns said.The Action Network was formed after media tycoon Peter Chernin acquired Sports Insights, FantasyLabs and SportsAction, combining the three to create the new business.FantasyLabs specialised in data and tools for daily fantasy sports theories, while Sports Insights operated as a betting enterprise, tracking real-time scores and offering betting line analysis. SportsAction was an app that featured live scores, betting odds and gambling advice.The combined company now operates as a subscription-based platform, offering punters access to data and analytical tools, as well as relevant articles, podcasts and videos.Patrick Keane, who was appointed as the company’s CEO in November, said: “With sports betting now legal in eight states and more than a dozen other states considering legislation to legalise, we see an incredible opportunity as we focus on securing the necessary approvals in regulated US sports betting jurisdictions as well as those around the world.”Downloads of the Action Network’s app increased by more than 700% on the NFL’s Super Bowl Sunday earlier this month in comparison with last year’s American football showpiece, with registered users also rocketing by over 500% year-on-year.

Rugby Championship: Who will lead the Haka?

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Hacked off: Piri Weepu normally leads the Haka, but now he has been dropped there is a position vacantBy Alan DymockTHERE IS not quite a revolving door with the All Blacks, but there are certainly a few international stars spinning right round, baby, right round in the build up to the Rugby Championship.There is no waiting around for the big clashes in the competition as Australia and New Zealand contest the Bledisloe Cup in Sydney on August 17, with new Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie set for a baptism of fire. However, while New Zealand are favourites to win the whole thing, they may do so without a few familiar names. Rugby aside, this could also affect their Haka.Piri Weepu, the rugby-players rugby player, normally leads the All Black battle cry before kick-off, but the 71-cap scrum-half has been omitted in favour of promoting young bucks TJ Perenara, Aaron Smith and Tawera Kerr-Barlow.Haka favourite: Liam Messam to lead?The move is one which should not be argued with. The Kiwi isles are blessed with a great depth of talent and inter-squad competition is part of what keeps New Zealand ahead of the rest of world rugby. Weepu has fallen in stature of late, with many assuming that the half-back’s value as a back-up kicker was all that saw his name jotted down on squad lists. There is enough zip and guile in the trio of nines brought in to the squad to justify leaving out Weepu. However, for those fond of the aesthetic and familiar, there is now a gap at the front of the Haka.As a leading light in the Super Rugby winning Waikato Chiefs side, Liam Messam is a stand out choice. Would he be as bombastic and animated as Weepu was? Perhaps, but at the very least we can all accept that he is a fearsome player and unquestionably one of the best back rowers on the planet.Andrew Hore is another name that has been mentioned in passing, but there may be no ring of truth to this one… In other news, Steve Hansen has thrown cold water over those saying that soon-to-be converted league star Benji Marshall will walk into the All Blacks squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. “He’s a world-class rugby league player and a world-class athlete,” Hansen said, “so to have someone like that who wants to be an All Black is great.”However he could not be drawn on the playmakers chances having not seen him play union, stating: “I can’t [talk of his All Black chances], because I don’t have any information to back it up, other than what I’ve seen.”center_img Pre-game challenge, aside, there will also be no Rene Ranger for the All Blacks after the pin-ball centre pulled himself out of the squad for “family reasons.” He is off to Montpellier shortly and did not want to commit to the Rugby Championship. Coach Steve Hansen has begrudgingly accepted Ranger’s decision.The All Blacks, it seems, are happy to secede on minor points like the Haka and fringe selections because they truly believe that they will get their consistency on the pitch and that anyone coming in as back-up is still better than in those teams they will play in the Championship. And who is to argue with their logic?The past and present: Weepu and SmithOf course, when you have Dan Carter at stand-off and Richie McCaw returning from a sabbatical – having played a measly 25 minutes of Super Rugby for the Canterbury Crusaders during their playoff bouts – it is easy to see why the likes of Weepu and Ranger will not be missed. Carter, McCaw, Messam and Kieran Read should be more than enough to lead the Haka and then the team to the lip of victory.After this, the question is whether or not this group will be so dominant that the All Blacks will see their way past South Africa as well as Argentina and a rejuvenated Wallaby side.last_img read more

A year later, the cathedral also removed depictions of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Photo: Danielle E. Thomas/Washington National Cathedral[Episcopal News Service] A Confederate battle flag depicted in stained glass.A pew labeled as the one where the president of the Confederacy once worshipped.A cathedral plaque honoring an Episcopal bishop who fought for the South in the Civil War.Should such symbols remain on display at a time when the nation is increasingly alert to violence fueled by white supremacists who see the Confederacy as a validation of their racist hatred? With statues, plaques, artwork and other representations of Confederate figures found in Episcopal churches across the country, how should a parish priest respond?“This is not just a historical question or a question of the political moment, but these are questions of theological issues that all Episcopal churches face in one way or another,” said Woody Register, a history professor at Sewanee: University of the South who is leading a six-year project intended to tell the full story of the Tennessee university’s ties to slavery and segregation.The answers to those questions are the focus of a pilot workshop at Sewanee in November that was developed by two Sewanee seminary graduates, the Rev. Hannah Pommersheim and the Rev. Kellan Day. Pommersheim and Day have assisted Register with Sewanee’s Project on Slavery, Race and Reconciliation.The workshop Nov. 5-7 will provide “tools for leading change,” guiding Episcopal priests in discernment about the Confederate symbols in their parishes. The workshop’s three parts will examine the theological underpinnings of such symbols, equip the priests with context for understanding art and symbols, and provide best practices for local action.One core theological issue is the sin of racism. Some early Episcopal leaders, including the founders of Sewanee, promoted the myth that slavery was morally defensible and defended the myth even after slavery was abolished. It was a “story built on the subjugation of a lot of human beings,” Day told Episcopal News Service.“I think the legacy of that racism is widespread and rampant, and one of the ways we can repent is by naming the story and sort of naming the ways it affects our built structures and sanctuaries,” she said.Day is now a transitional deacon serving at the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation in Highlands, North Carolina. Pommersheim has signed on for another year with Register’s project team as a research associate. The two developed the workshop because they sensed that, while the nation debated Confederate symbols in public spaces, “these symbols have different meanings in a church space,” Pommersheim said.This plaque honoring Leonidas Polk, an Episcopal bishop and Confederate general, was removed in 2018 from display at Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati, Ohio. Photo: Sarah Hartwig/Christ Church CathedralFor example, Day said a Confederate figure might be seen as sanctified when depicted in stained glass, such as the Confederate generals in windows that were removed two years ago at Washington National Cathedral. The cathedral’s decision was hastened by the national uproar over a deadly standoff in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and counter-protesters. The hate groups had gathered there for a rally in support of a Confederate statue that was the focus of a legal battle.Sewanee and Washington National Cathedral were among the Episcopal institutions that reassessed their own Confederate symbols in the wake of the Charlottesville clashes. Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati, Ohio, removed a plaque honoring Bishop Leonidas Polk, a Sewanee founder who served as a Confederate general in the Civil War. In Lexington, Virginia, an Episcopal church that had been named for Robert E. Lee dropped the Confederate general from its name.In deciding what to do about those symbols, it is critical to understand what motivated communities – and churches – to erect tributes to Confederate history decades after the end of the Civil War, Register said. Often their motivation had less to do with preserving history than with promoting the myth of the Lost Cause, which claimed the Confederacy was a failed but noble campaign.“These memorials and monuments tend to say as much or more about the moment in which they were installed than they do about the period or persons they memorialize,” he said.A pew known as the Jefferson Davis pew is seen among newer pews at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Photo: David BerenguerThe so-called Jefferson Davis pew was a longtime icon at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Montgomery, Alabama, until its removal last year. Church leaders researched the pew’s history and found that its ties to Davis were false and that a dedication ceremony in 1925 was a political act steeped in racism.The Rev. Jamie Osborne, associate rector at St. John’s, was one of 13 bishops and clergy members whom Pommersheim and Day interviewed to build a curriculum for their workshop. Osborne will be leading one of the workshop’s sessions, along with Sewanee art professor Shelly MacLaren and the Rev. Molly Bosscher, who spent four years as associate rector at Richmond, Virginia’s St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, once known as the Cathedral of the Confederacy.This initial workshop received a $5,000 grant from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund and is only open to Episcopal clergy grappling with Confederate symbols at their churches. Pommersheim and Day hope to recruit up to 15 participants, and afterward, they will assess what worked and what changes would make the curriculum stronger.Gathering face to face has the advantage of creating a support network of clergy members grappling with the same questions, they said. One of the intended lessons of the workshop is that it is helpful first to create a space for the parish to talk openly and respectfully about these issues.“How can you pastorally make the best decision but also bring people along with you while you’re making that decision?” Pommersheim said.Edmund Kirby-Smith was a Confederate general who later taught mathematics at the University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee, where this monument to the general is located. It was moved in 2017 from this location to the university cemetery. Photo: Caroline CarsonThe workshop also serves as a milepost for the work of Register’s project team, which already has completed substantial research into the history of the university and the 28 Episcopal dioceses that still own and govern it today. Some of that research is informing how Sewanee’s administrators handle Confederate symbols on campus, such as the decision two years ago to relocate a monument honoring Edmund Kirby-Smith, a 19th-century Sewanee professor who previously served as a Confederate general.As part of the Slavery, Race and Reconciliation project, the team has spent the last six months launching an oral history campaign to record old stories of African American life in the community of Sewanee. The university received $12,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to purchase electronic equipment to scan historic photos and produce audio recordings.The team is considering how to maintain such collections and research after the project winds down in three years. Whatever the outcome, Register says, the research is about more than local history.“Sewanee’s story is not just a mountaintop story, and it’s not just an Episcopal story, though it certainly is that,” Register said. “Its history is the history of race and religion and higher education throughout the United States.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Another red card for striking leaves Andre Esterhuizen facing more time off

first_imgMonday Apr 26, 2021 Another red card for striking leaves Andre Esterhuizen facing more time off Harlequins centre Andre Esterhuizen faces another ban after he was red carded for his part in an altercation against London Irish in the Guinness Premiership this past weekend. ADVERTISEMENTThe big Springbok was previously red carded as recently as December when he dropped an elbow into the face of Gloucester’s Lloyd Evans.Although that was considered reckless and not deliberate, he was suspended for four weeks.WATCH: Quins commentary team lose it at thumping Esterhuizen tackle against GloucesterOn this occasion, against London Irish, Esterhuizen was involved in a scuffle off the ball and it was again an elbow that was to blame, albeit in very different circumstances.He was shown a red card by referee Matthew Carley for striking with the elbow, contrary to World Rugby Law 9.12.The frustrating aspect for fans, and indeed himself, will be that he wasn’t even involved in the initial scuffle, but went in and then things escalated.Esterhuizen was also suspended for four weeks in 2015, that time for a dangerous tip-tackle on Michael Rhodes.The former Natal Sharks player will appear before an online independent disciplinary panel tomorrow night (Tuesday 27 April 2021).ADVERTISEMENTYou can see the incident in the highlights video below Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 7 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Pure head-loss from Rebels star leads… 7 WEEKS AGO Brutal breakdown stamping in 2003 shows just… 7 WEEKS AGO Matu’u bemused by his ban after footage shows… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Black Liberation and the Vietnamese struggle

first_imgDuring the height of the genocidal war waged by the United States against the people of Vietnam during the 1960s and early 1970s, African Americans were involved in a life-and-death campaign in the U.S. aimed at reclaiming their national identity, human rights and racial dignity.January 30 was the 50th anniversary of the Tet Offensive that shook the foundations of the U.S. war strategy in Vietnam. In a surprise move, the forces of the National Liberation Front and the People’s Army of Vietnam attacked more than 100 cities and towns across the country.The U.S. anti-war movement during this period is often portrayed as led by white university students who had left-wing political leanings, with African Americans being almost exclusively preoccupied with Civil Rights and Black Power demands within a domestic framework.The reality of the period proves to be quite the contrary. From the early 1960s, leading figures in the Civil Rights and Black nationalists movements expressed their opposition to the U.S. role in Vietnam.The most advanced elements offered concrete acts of solidarity with the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in the North and the National Liberation Front operating in the Pentagon-occupied South.Both Vietnamese and the African-American people were subjected to imperialism and national oppression by an enemy that sought to crush their respective entitlements to peace, social justice, self-determination and sovereignty.Dating back to at least 1924, the man who became known as Ho Chi Minh (Nguyen Ai Quoc) had lived in upper Manhattan as an activist among the African-American community during the period known as the Harlem Renaissance.Ho had worked with the organization led by Marcus Garvey known as the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League, headquartered in New York City at its zenith in the early 1920s.Ho reflected on his observations conducted just six decades after the conclusion of the U.S. Civil War and the legal dissolution of chattel slavery, in a period of extreme state repression, widespread institutional racism and arbitrary violence, in a 1924 pamphlet entitled ”On Lynching and the Ku Klux Klan.” The work documents various aspects of social conditions prevailing in African-American communities throughout the U.S.‘The Black race is most oppressed’Ho Chi Minh noted in this important work: “It is well-known that the Black race is the most oppressed and the most exploited of the human family. It is well-known that the spread of capitalism and the discovery of the New World had as an immediate result the rebirth of slavery. What everyone does not perhaps know is that after 65 years of so-called emancipation, American Negroes still endure atrocious moral and material sufferings, of which the most cruel and horrible is the custom of lynching.”Ho chronicles the history of racial terror against African people from the end of the war between the states over the future of slavery to the burgeoning resistance of the people following World War I.During the war and afterward, African Americans migrated in the millions to Northern, Midwestern and Western cities, becoming a social force in the struggle for freedom and democratic rights whose impact extended beyond their own population.This same pamphlet emphasized the significance of this transformation: “The victory of the federal government had just freed the Negroes and made them citizens. The agriculture of the South, deprived of its Black labor, was short of hands. Former landlords were exposed to ruin. The Klansmen proclaimed the principle of the supremacy of the white race. Anti-Negro was their only policy.“The agrarian and slaveholding bourgeoisie saw in the Klan a useful agent, almost a savior. They gave it all the help in their power. The Klan’s methods ranged from intimidation to murder. The Klan is for many reasons doomed to disappear. The Negroes, having learned during the war that they are a force if united, are no longer allowing their kinsmen to be beaten or murdered with impunity. They are replying to each attempt at violence by the Klan.“In July 1919, in Washington, they stood up to the Klan and a wild mob. The battle raged in the capital for four days. In August, they fought for five days against the Klan and the mob in Chicago. Seven regiments were mobilized to restore order. In September the government was obliged to send federal troops to Omaha to put down similar strife. In various other states the Negroes defend themselves no less energetically.”The Vietnamese Revolution and challenges to imperialismHo Chi Minh left the U.S. and traveled to other parts of the world including Europe. In 1930, the Indochinese Communist Party was formed, encompassing revolutionaries from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia who were battling French colonialism. Later Vietnam was occupied by both France and Japan.The struggle for national liberation and unity consequently took on an international character. After the defeat of Japan, the Democratic Republic of Vietnam was proclaimed in December 1945, prompting another guerrilla war against French imperialism.By 1954, France had been humiliated at the battle of Dien Bien Phu. Ho Chi Minh had become a hero in the international movement for independence and socialism.However, U.S. imperialism took over the war of domination from France, and by the early 1960s President John F. Kennedy was deploying “advisors” in the form of military personnel to South Vietnam, which was under U.S. occupation. The U.S. refused to allow free elections and the war continued.African-American opposition to the Vietnam War and solidarity with the NLF and the government in Hanoi were embodied by Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) and the Nation of Islam (NOI). They had been against U.S. involvement in Vietnam since the early 1960s.After leaving the NOI, Malcolm X adopted a decisively revolutionary position related to world revolution and spoke frequently of solidarity with the People’s Republic of China and the Vietnamese Revolution.Next: The rising tide of the Black Liberation Movement and international struggles for national liberation and socialism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The threat followed his newspaper’s prominent coverage of the so-called “memogate” scandal, which led to the resignation of Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States this week.“We ask the Pakistani authorities to take the telephone threats against Mohammad Malick seriously and to pay attention to his safety in the coming weeks,” the press freedom organization said.“We do not want to see another tragedy like the kidnapping and murder of Saleem Shahzad.”The body of Shahzad, an investigative reporter who wrote about Islamic militants and Al-Qaeda for the Asia Times online newspaper, was found in Punjab province on 31 May 48 hours after he went missing.“The climate of insecurity surrounding journalists in the country continues while nothing is done to bring it to an end. The government must respond urgently, first by ensuring that the continual attacks on media workers do not go unpunished. If the perpetrators of the crimes and those behind them are not brought to justice, self-censorship by journalists, already widespread, will become standard practice,” Reporters Without Borders continued.Malick, contacted by Reporters Without Borders, quoted the caller as saying: “You are driving fast … and be careful as you may have accident,” adding: “I am telling you, better to think.” The caller went on to warn the Rawalpindi-based journalist of serious repercussions if he continued to follow the “memogate” story.Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States, Husain Haqqani, resigned on Tuesday after it emerged that he had allegedly written a memo to the U.S. government asking for Washington’s help in controlling the Pakistani army.Malick believed the threats came from one of Pakistan’s intelligence agencies and resulted from his coverage of the scandal via his newspaper and on the television station Geo News TV.
