Five Spain Players Banned For Confronting Referee

The bans vary in severity with scrum-half Guillaume Rouet and substitute Sebastian Rouet receiving the heaviest sanctions; they were banned for 36 and 43 weeks respectively.Both men were found guilty of physical and verbal abuse of a match official.Three other players – flankers Pierre Barthere and Lucas Guillaume, and fly-half Mathieu Belie – all received 14-week bans. They were found guilty of verbally threatening the match official. The confrontations occurred after the final whistle of the defeat by Belgium, which meant Spain missed out on automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup in Japan, with Romania taking that spot. Instead, Spain would go into a play-off against Portugal, with the winners then facing Samoa.Spain captain Jaime Nava did address the ugly scenes after the match, saying: “I would like to apologise for what happened with the referee. The image at the end of the game does not represent the sport nor the values of this team. It must be understood however, we’ve lost part of our dream.” However, the fact the eligibility of certain players who appeared in the Rugby Europe Championship has been called into question has become an even bigger issue. World Rugby has launched an investigation into that before making any decisions on sanctions.For more news on the World Cup and other rugby competitions, follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.center_img Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup… Expand Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify… World Rugby has said it “was deeply concerned” by the decision to appoint Romanian officials for the Spain-Belgium match given that the outcome affected Romania’s World Cup qualification and was due to order a replay.

Bill Miller. Photo: Bill Miller[Episcopal News Service] The priestly pup Nawiliwili “Wili” Nelson has become quite the celebrity from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Las Vegas, Nevada, and he concluded his road trip with the Rev. Bill Miller on July 16 by topping $10,000 raised for animal wellness charities along the route of their “Last Howlelujah Tour.”Wili, a terrier mix, received a cancer diagnosis in November and was given as little as three months to live, but Miller’s beloved dog has hung on much longer with the help of surgery, chemotherapy and a healthier diet.Miller, rector at Christ Episcopal Church in Covington, Louisiana, decided to take time off this summer to spend quality time with Wili while he could, and they embarked on the road trip together on July 1. Their six-state tour featured events in 18 cities, including visits to churches, breweries and bookstores, where part of the proceeds of sales of Miller’s two books were added to the daily fundraisers.The duo made their final stop July 16 at Mountain View Presbyterian Church in Las Vegas. Miller delivered a sermon at two morning services and then spoke at a gathering hosted at the church in the evening.That one stop raised $3,500 for the Animal Foundation of Las Vegas, Miller said on his Facebook page, and the tour’s final fundraising total reached $12,150.“Thank you to Mountain View Presbyterian for your incredible hospitality,” Miller said. “Thank you to all our Episcopal friends that turned out to support us. … Our hearts overflow with joy and gratitude.”Along the way, Miller and Wili have been featured in news report after news report, from the New Orleans Times-Picayune to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. (Episcopal News Service also reported on the duo in this July 10 article.)Miller, a 58-year-old Texas native, adopted Wili 12 years ago while he was living in Hawaii. (The dog’s full name is intended to be a little bit Hawaiian and a little bit Texan.)He estimated the round trip will add about 5,000 miles to their Honda CRV by the time they get back to Covington, and after all the public events on the way to Las Vegas, the ride home will just be about spending precious time with Wili.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The NHS is one of the organisations most affected by the WannaCry ransomware attack in the UK, although organisations and individuals in over 150 countries have also been affected.In this regard the Commission advises charities:Any email address can be spoofed. Do not open attachments or click on the links within any unsolicited emails you receive, and never respond to emails that ask for personal/charity information or financial detailsThe sender’s name and number in a text message can be spoofed, so even if the message appears to be from an organisation you know of, continue to exercise caution, particularly if the texts are asking you to click on a link or call a number.How charities should report cyber-attacksStaff and trustees who think that their charity has been compromised or affected by a cyber-attack should report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040. Trustees are advised also to report suspected or known fraud incidents to the Charity Commission.Serious incident reporting helps it gauge the volume and impact of incidents within charities and to understand the risks facing the sector as a whole.Harvey Grenville, Head of Investigations and Enforcement at the Charity Commission said: “Charities need to be aware of the imminent danger posed by ransomware threats and take appropriate steps to protect their charity from cyber-attack – a charity’s valuable assets and good reputation can be put at risk from these dangerous scams.“I urge all charities, if they suspect they may have fallen victim to cyber fraud, to report it immediately to Action Fraud and to the Commission, under its serious incident reporting regime.”Charities can also visit Charities Against Fraud for advice and tips on protection against cyber-fraud. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Following the global damage wrought by the WannaCry ransomware attack, the Charity Commission has published an alert advising how charities can be protected from the threat.In issuing its regulatory advice under section 15(2) of the Charities Act 2011, the Commission acknowledges that charities could also be at risk from this attack. It urges charity staff and trustees to be vigilant.Specifically, the Commission, the independent regulator for charities in England and Wales, advises all charities to follow protection advice recently issued by the City of London Police and National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).What to doThe key protection messages from the Charity Commission are:Install system updates on all devices as soon as they become availableInstall anti-virus software on all devices and keep it updatedCreate regular backups of your important/business critical files to a device that is not left connected to your network, as any malware infection could be spread to that tooDo not meet any stated demands and pay a ransom – this may be requested via digital cryptocurrency BitcoinFor technical guidance, including specific software patches, the Commission recommends charities consult the National Cyber Security Centre. The site also contains in-depth technical guidance on how to protect an organisation from ransomware. Advertisement Howard Lake | 15 May 2017 | Newslast_img read more

A black day for free expression in Abidjan

first_imgNews Côte d’IvoireAfrica October 29, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders said it was “outraged and sickened” by a crackdown yesterday on the opposition press in Ivory Coast that is coinciding with a sharp deterioration in the political and military climate and attacks by pro-government forces on former rebels.”Yesterday was a black day for free expression in Ivory coast and it was the result of a concerted operation aimed a silencing dissident voices in Abidjan,” the organisation said.”The authorities must understand that politically-motivated raids, carried out by loyalist militia and sanctioned by the armed forces, are not only illegal but also unacceptable for a government that calls itself democratic,” Reporters Without Borders continued. “As we have said over and again, President Laurent Gbagbo must not allow armed civilians to install a reign of terror in Abidjan.”Reporters Without Borders urged international organisations and countries that still have influence in Ivory Coast to do everything possible to get the authorities to stop the current crackdown, which comes against a backdrop of political violence in which the media are viewed as military targets.”We are confident that the United Nations, which is a guarantor of the Accra accords, will intercede forcefully as the gagging of the opposition press is always a harbinger of more violence,” the press freedom organisation said.In yesterday’s violence, the offices of the dailies 24 Heures and Le Patriote (a newspaper that supports Alassane Ouattara’s party, the RDR), were ransacked and torched in the afternoon by groups of pro-government “Young Patriots.” All of the equipment at the Nouveau Réveil (a daily that supports former president Henri Konan Bédié’s party, the PDCI-RDA) was wrecked by about 200 civilians armed with iron bars and clubs and wearing the T-shirts of the hardline wing of President Gbagbo’s party, the FPI.A military source told the Agence France-Presse bureau in Abidjan in the evening that distribution of daily newspapers that support the opposition and former rebels had been banned in pro-government areas. “These protective measures against the pro-rebel newspapers have been taken to accompany the movements on the ground,” the source said.The newspapers affected were Le Patriote, Le Libéral, Le Front, Le Nouveau Réveil, Jour Plus and 24 Heures, which are all accused of “defending the rebellion.” The ban was imposed as air raids were carried out by the Ivorian armed forces against former rebel positions in the central city of Bouaké and in the north.Local re-transmission of Radio France Internationale (RFI), the BBC World Service and Africa N°1 on FM frequencies has been cut since the night of 3 November when a commando sabotaged their joint relay installations.Reporters Without Borders had already voiced concern on 27 October about a growing campaign of censorship, intimidation and violence against opposition newspapers in Ivory Coast following reports of raids by Ivorian youth groups on street vendors in Abidjan.
