Gethin Jenkins’ fantastic solo effort against Namibia

first_imgMonday Sep 26, 2011 Gethin Jenkins’ fantastic solo effort against Namibia Welsh prop Gethin Jenkins scored a wonderful solo effort as Wales beat Namibia 81-7 earlier today in New Plymouth, scoring 12 tries as they produced a strong second half performance against the fatigued African outfit. Namibia, who took a thumping from the Springboks just a few days back, were somehow expected to get up to face Wales today in a fixture that has once again highlighted the problems that exist within the format of the competition. Made up of a handful of professionals and mostly amateur players, the Namibians are now the first team to officially to exit the tournament. They did okay in the first half as they showed their fighting spirit and Wales took a while to get going. The second however was a task too much, and they ended up shipping over 80 points in two matches, in just five days.Welsh center Scott Williams scored a hat-trick, and as his side ran riot in the second half, prop Gethin Jenkins scored a fantastic solo effort. Having returned from horrible injury problems, Jenkins was delighted just to be out there, and as everyone knows, he just needs the ball in a bit of space to show that he himself is a frustrated backline player.Speaking about his nine month long injury problems, Jenkins said earlier in the week “It has been a long road back, and I have to thank Wales’ medical and physiotherapy staff for doing great work with me.“It is a dark time when you are injured, but the medical staff around me kept me going and kept reassuring me it was going to be right,” he said. Wales and world rugby are the better for it, as today we saw a wonderful player score a brilliant front-rowers try, his second entry in our archive of the best prop tries ever.

Renewable Fuels Groups Attack Api’s Saudi Interests

first_imgHome Energy Renewable Fuels Groups Attack Api’s Saudi Interests Numerous companies that support the U.S. biofuels industry are also foreign, such as Spain’s Abengoa or Dutch-based DSM. When asked about that, officials from the pro-renewable fuel groups countered that the fuels are grown and produced in the United States. By Erica Martinson By Gary Truitt – Apr 30, 2014 “This is deeply troubling,” AUFC President Brad Woodhouse said. “The American people deserve to know who is funding ads” aimed at bringing down the RFS and “lengthening this country’s addiction to foreign oil,” he said. Pro-renewable fuels groups will run a television ad on Washington Sunday shows this week criticizing the American Petroleum Institute’s ties to Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco.Americans United for Change andVoteVets.org are sponsoring a commercial Sunday as part of their effort to oppose EPA’s proposed cut in volume mandates in the 2014 renewable fuels. The near-six-figure ad will air May 4 during Meet the Press, Face the Nation, This Week and Fox News Sunday.Saudi Arabia is 7,000 miles away, but “they’ve got some good friends here at home — the American Petroleum Institute,” the ad begins. It implores viewers who see API’s ads against the RFS to “remember who’s paying for them, and what they want — to keep you addicted to their oil.” Facebook Twitter Previous articlePaying it Forward: Indiana Farmer Wins Contest and Makes DonationNext articleGet Answers to GMO Questions at GMO Answers Website Gary Truitt SHARE Renewable Fuels Groups Attack Api’s Saudi Interests SHARE Facebook Twitter The groups joined in releasing information from API’s IRS disclosures, and subsidiaries of Saudi Aramco listed on API’s membership list. IRS forms also showed that Saudi Refining CEO Tofiq Al-Gabsani, who is also a registered agent for the kingdom, was on API’s board of directors in 2010 and 2011. Currently Nabeel Amudi, CEO of Aramco Services, another Saudi Aramco subsidiary, is on the board at API, the groups said.last_img read more

New Jersey school district bans students with lunch debt from participating in extracurricular activities

first_imgiStock(CHERRY HILL, N.J.) — A New Jersey school district is banning students with school lunch debt from attending extracurricular activities, including prom and field trips.The Cherry Hill school district passed a policy that prohibits high school students who owe $75 or more in meal payments from “participating in extracurricular activities, purchasing tickets for school dances including proms, attending class trips including the Senior Trip, and purchasing a yearbook,” according to a detailed outline of the policy.Middle school students who owe $75 or more in school lunch fees will face the same punishment, while elementary school students will be barred from participating in after-school events and attending class trips.The policy, which was approved last Tuesday at a board of education meeting, received swift backlash from parents and students.Video of the board meeting, which was posted to the district’s website, showed students, teachers and parents addressing the board to condemn the policy.Dr. Vibiana Cvetkovic, whose grandchildren attend schools in the district, said at the meeting, “there are many reasons why parents can’t pay. It is an elitist assumption on the part of this school board that parents are not paying a bill because they don’t want to.”Jacob Graff, a senior at Cherry Hill East, said, “If my mom or dad can’t pay for lunch, why should I be restricted from my passions?”“What are colleges gonna think?” he asked the board, noting how important extracurricular activities are on applications.The school district had $14,343 in unpaid meal debt in the last school year from more than 300 students who had a debt of more than $10, according to NJ.com.Superintendent Dr. Joseph Meloche said at the meeting the district’s goal is “responsibility with compassion.”He urged those criticizing the policy to take note that it does not include a state statute, which would require meals to be withheld from students who owe lunch money.“Money is certainly something that we have to deal with. That’s our world, but that’s not the most important thing that we’re addressing in terms of the policy and the work that’s being done,” Meloche said. “It’s about supporting children and supporting families … sometimes the right thing is not the easy thing to do.”Multiple calls to the school district were not returned.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Trump accuser E. Jean Carroll appears in court in defamation lawsuit

first_imgMarilyn Nieves/iStockBy AARON KATERSKY and MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Department of Justice opted to forego oral arguments at a hearing Wednesday afternoon on whether the United States will be allowed to take over for President Donald Trump as a defendant in E. Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit, after its lawyer was not able to appear in court due to quarantine restrictions.The former Elle columnist, who appeared at the New York courthouse in person for the hearing, sued the president last year over his denial of her rape allegation. The president has denied ever meeting her.The DOJ argued in a court filing last month that Trump was “acting within the scope of his office” at the time. Carroll’s attorney, Roberta Kaplan, argued in a subsequent court filing this month that Trump is not covered by the Federal Tort Claims Act, which assumes liability for the wrongful acts of government employees.Before the hearing started, the federal judge denied a request from the DOJ to delay Wednesday’s proceedings. Stephen Terrell, the attorney set to make the government’s case, traveled to New York from Virginia, which requires a 14-day quarantine and thus could not access the Manhattan courthouse, the DOJ argued.In denying the postponement, the judge gave the DOJ three options: find a substitute attorney, make the argument by phone or submit paperwork and forego oral argument. The DOJ decided on the latter and to rely on its written submissions.Kaplan noted Carroll had “traveled some distance” to attend the hearing and asked the judge for a chance to answer his questions.“The motion before your honor is essentially a motion to dismiss,” Kaplan said.Carroll, who served as an advice columnist at Elle magazine for more than 20 years, accused Trump last year of sexually assaulting her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the 1990s. She is suing him for defamation, arguing he damaged her reputation and career by denying her story and claiming she took money from political opponents to fabricate it.Carroll’s lawsuit was on the verge of the evidentiary stage before the Justice Department intervened and moved the case into federal court. A state court had rejected the president’s argument that he’s immune from Carroll’s accusations, clearing the way for him to sit for a deposition.In a June 2019 interview with The Hill, the president said Carroll was “totally lying” about her accusation, adding, “I’ll say it with great respect: No. 1, she’s not my type. No. 2, it never happened. It never happened, OK?”Carroll’s lawsuit asserts this statement, as well as two others made during the same time period, were false and defamatory.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
