IRB Guide to Experimental Law Variations

first_imgMonday Aug 4, 2008 IRB Guide to Experimental Law Variations The International Rugby Board’s Experimental Law Variations (ELV’s) are now in full effect, having got underway globally on August the 1st. The worldwide, 12 month trial will encompass all levels of the game, incorporating 13 experimental laws that were approved by the IRB Council at their recent meeting in Dublin.The ELVs have been trialled in the Super 14, and are currently on display in the Tri Nations. They have been well received by players and fans alike so far, and the next phase of progression will be to see if they will be positively received in Europe.While the ELV’s are designed to simplify the game, they’ve been widely criticised by many, particularly those in the Northern Hemisphere who feel that the new laws are purely in the interest of teams like Australia, who will benefit from the style of play the laws encourage.Rod Macqueen, member of the IRBs Laws Project Group working on the ELVs dismisses those claims, stating that the laws are merely to return the game to what it once was.The people that are saying the ELVs are designed to make the game faster etc, that was never the case, that has never been part of the criteria. The criteria has always been to make sure that we kept it a game for all shapes and sizes, but try and make it simpler and in a lot of ways bring it back to the game we used to have when there was actually more space on the field and more breaks to be able to come about.In fact the game that we have got today, that we saw in the World Cup, under the current laws is quite different to what the game was like 20 years ago. In fact dramatically different.The IRB will meet again early next year to decide whether the proposed laws should be adopted for good or not. Their goal is to get a single set of laws agreed upon as soon as possible.Results so far have been positive. In this years Super 14 there were more tries, fewer lineouts, fewer penalties kicked, and the ball was in play longer. There were roughly the same number of scrums, more mauls and many more free kicks.A recent survey has also shown that 83 percent of players playing under the new laws found them to be a positive for rugby, with almost 90 percent of the 260 respondents stating the laws were easy to understand and result in more continuity.But, for the critics, Why fix something that isnt broken?has become the clich of choice recently, with fans and former players questioning the move to turn the game into more of a Rugby League type contest.The reality is such that like it or not, its going to happen, and we have to adjust to it for now whether it becomes permanent or not.The IRB are by no means out to ruin rugby. They are however experimenting with a few changes that may well improve certain aspects of the game for all involved.Former England flanker Neil Back is one who is optimistic, keeping an open mind about the laws that many have pessimistically dismissed.“The ELVs are here to stay, for this season at least. I approach them as with anything else new in life and in rugby: you have got to be positive. I don’t entirely agree with the rule changes, as I’ve said before, but it is important that we embrace them and deal with them.” This 17 minute video released by the IRB hopes to give you a better understanding of the ELV’s, with footage used to further explain how they look in action.

A third journalist, Mohammad Hidari, was arrested at his work place. The reasons for their arrests and where they are being held are not yet known.At the same time, several other journalists have been summoned and interrogated by intelligence ministry officials in recent days.Amid allegations of corruption and hit by the international economic downturn, the Islamic Republic has been resorting to all possible means to silence its critics – censoring newspapers, controlling online content, arresting journalists and in some cases threatening their relatives.Peter Horrocks, the head of global news at the BBC, reported yesterday that relatives and friends of around 10 Iranians who work in London for BBC Persian Television had been harassed by the Iranian authorities following the broadcast of a documentary about the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.Horrocks said they were summoned for questioning, passports were confiscated and some were banned from leaving the country.This is not the first time that the regime has threatened the families of exile journalists or used this kind of intimidation as a form of blackmail in an attempt to manipulate media.Reporters Without Borders knows of more than 50 cases of threats, arrests and harassment of families of journalists in Iran. In an unprecedented exodus, more than 250 journalists and bloggers have fled the country since the disputed presidential election of June 2009.

Hu Jia arrived home at 2:30 in the morning. Safe, very happy.”She followed up today with this Tweet for journalists and her husband’s supporters: “Don’t come to see us. You would not be able to enter.” The couple’s home has been placed under tight police surveillance.Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Hu is finally free, but is concerned about his current circumstances, the curbs on his freedom of expression and movement and the pressure being put on him and his family. The press freedom organization will closely follow the treatment he receives, especially after the media’s attention has moved elsewhere.His release, coinciding with a visit to Europe by Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, must not divert attention from the intensified crackdown on dissidents in recent months, at a time when China risks being infected by the Arab revolutions.The police recently told Zeng that her husband would probably not be able to lead a “normal life” after his release. It seems that he is being placed under a form of house arrest, as other newly released activists have in recent months.Interviewed yesterday by Hong Kong-based Cable TV, Hu said he wanted to resume his political activities, but in a careful way, taking account of the possible consequences to his family. “You should be loyal to your conscience,” he said, adding: “They have told me to live an ordinary life and not clash with the regime, because this regime is very cruel and it arbitrarily violates the dignity of its citizens.”An environmentalist and campaigner for the rights of AIDS sufferers, Hu was released on completing a three-and-a-half-year jail sentence on a charge of attempted subversion in comments he posted online and interviews he gave to the foreign media. Under his sentence, he is now deprived of his political rights for a year.The European parliament awarded Hu the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 2008.AFP PHOTO/ Zeng Jinyan/HO ChinaAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF_en to go further News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Prime Minister sues fourth journalist over Clearstream allegations

first_img News News FranceEurope – Central Asia Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin yesterday brought a libel suit against journalist Airy Routier, the author of a book about the Clearstream affair entitled “Complot des paranos,” and against his publisher, Albin Michel. Routier is the fourth journalist to be sued by the prime minister in connection with this case.————21 of juneGovernment told that ‘deeds not words’ will protect press freedomReporters Without Borders has voiced disappointment at the French government’s apparent failure to act on its promise to allow journalists to protect their sources of information.The press freedom organisation said that remarks made by the justice minister on 20 June simply repeated what had been announced in a New Year message to the press on 11 January 2006 and in even less definite terms.“There has been no concrete progress since then and no law has been drafted on the issue. We hope that parliamentarians will get back onto this case in the autumn,” the press freedom organisation said.“We have doubts about whether the government really wants to protect press freedom in France, when the Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin had just laid a complaint for defamation against three journalists.“Mr de Villepin’s decision just confuses the justice minister’s message”, it said. “To our knowledge, no prime minister while in office has ever acted against the press before Mr de Villepin, and the presidents of the 5th Republic had promised never to do so,” it added.French Justice Minister, Pascal Clément, said on 11 January 2006, that the right to protect sources was to be included in the press law of 29 July 1881. Reporters Without Borders had welcomed the initiative which it hailed as “real progress” explaining that journalists would get the advantage of increased guarantees, particularly during searches of their homes.But at a conference in Paris on 20 June, organised by the organisation, Presse-Liberté, Mr Clément said he “was hoping” to include the right of protection of sources, when he had said in January it would indeed be inscribed in law.He also said that he was “contemplating” extending the same rules about searches of press business premises to the homes of journalists. In his January speech, the minister had promised to do so.Meanwhile, on 19 June, Mr de Villepin launched libel proceedings against Denis Robert, journalist and writer, author of several books on the Clearstream case – involving faked bribery allegations against senior politicians – the latest of which, “Clearstream, the Investigation”, has been temporarily withdrawn from sale. The prime minister is also suing Jean-Marie Pontaut and Gilles Gaetner, authors of “Showdown at the Elysee”. They are respectively editor and deputy editor of the investigative service of the weekly L’Express.

Salvation Army seeks response volunteers

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Disaster Response Team will be made up of about six individuals who would assist the Salvation Army during a disaster.“The employees at the Service Center would be available to help if there was not a need to keep the Thrift Store open,” May said. “But, if people are needing the services that the store provides, the employees would have to be available so we would need volunteers to go out into the field.”Those who volunteer for the Disaster Response Team will receive training and will make valuable contributions to the community as members of a preparedness team. In an effort to meet the needs of the community, the local Salvation Army is selling the famous Carter Sanders’ camp stew at $10 a quart. The stew will be available for pickup from noon until 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 4, at the Salvation Army Service Center.Orders may be placed at the Service Center on South Brundidge Street.
