Nick Easter and Jack Nowell both scored hat-tricks as England ended their World Cup campaign with a big win over Uruguay at Manchester City Stadium. They scored ten tries in all as the decision to field more playmakers in their back-line brought more creativity to their game, Henry Slade standing out particularly. Still, there is no escaping how disappointing this campaign has been for the World Cup hosts as their involvement in the tournament is now over.WHAT’S HOTDue North – Given the fact this was a dead rubber it was quite a turnout, with more than 50,000 people at Manchester City Stadium. The crowd weren’t always loud; in fact, the ground was often quieter than we’ve heard it at any game of RWC 2015, but fair play to them for turning up and enjoying the occasion.Northern lights: Young England fans enjoy the game in Manchester. Photo: Getty ImagesSo how about playing a few more fixtures in the North of England? We all know that Tests at Twickenham generate lots of cash for the RFU but spreading the game throughout England is surely just as important as money. Why not stage one autumn Test in Manchester or Leeds or Newcastle ever year?Spirit of adventure – It was refreshing to see England play with such abandon in attack, spinning the ball wide, running inside lines, putting in deft kicks. Obviously there was none of the pressure of their previous pool games, given that their hopes of making the last eight ended against Australia, but Henry Slade’s distribution and the liveliness of Jack Nowell definitely stood out. Jonathan Joseph also made an impact when he came on. It must be said, however, that there needs to be a balance between being creative and being pragmatic – it doesn’t have to be one or the other. Yes, there was nothing riding on this game, but some of the quick lineouts and risky passes were unnecessary. Looking after the ball and more of a calm approach were called for at times.Central figure: Henry Slade showed great footballing skills for his try. Photo: Getty ImagesUruguayan passion – The non-playing members of Uruguay’s squad were sat in front of the press box and it’s fair to say they relished every decision or piece of play that was in their side’s favour. Up on their feet, arms in air, loud cheers. Uruguay deserved praise for their resistance and it was good to see a team celebrating the small victories in a game – one can only imagine the scenes had los Teros managed to score a try!WHAT’S NOTThe breakdown – Yet again England were heavily penalised at the contact area and Uruguay won more turnovers than them (nine to eight). It’s been a theme of their World Cup, but against a largely amateur team like Uruguay they should dominate the contest, particularly given the size differential. There are clearly fundamental flaws to their strategy and technique at the breakdown. Whether this coaching team remains or a new one comes in, this is the area that needs the most attention.Making contact: Uruguay caused England problems at the breakdown. Photo: Getty ImagesNeck roll – Since the first game of this World Cup, the neck roll has been high on referees’ agenda, so why are players still doing it? They knew before the tournament that officials had been told to look out for the offence. A bit of common sense would see players avoid going anywhere near an opponent’s neck when trying to clear them from a ruck.Chatter – More than once referee Chris Pollock had a word with England players for appealing for decisions during the game. One, this is unnecessary – play to the whistle. Two, another directive to referees is to clamp down on players other than the captain continually speaking to them. What were we saying about common sense? Less talk, more action.STATISTICS12 – The number of clean breaks made by England compared to two by Uruguay. Balancing act: Anthony Watson shows great ball control to score England’s first try. Photo: Getty Images LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

A new variety of daffodil created for Marie Curie Cancer Care will be sold in all 300 UK Homebase stores from 13 September to 17 November 17 at £1. The variety has been named ‘Choice’ to reflect the charity’s efforts to give more people the choice to die at home.With each bulb sold at £1, Marie Curie Cancer Care believe the initiative, the first of its kind for Homebase, could raise up to £300,000, which would make it the most successful CRM (Cause Related Marketing) campaign for the charity to date.The charity has set up a website to capture email addresses from those who buy the bulb and wish to back Marie Curie Cancer Care’s ‘Supporting the Choice to Die at Home’ campaign. People will be driven to the site by a leaflet inside the bulb boxes sold and via consumer PR. Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Joint mission investigates Mora García’s death

first_img Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Help by sharing this information RSF_en ——————————————————————–19 March – Journalist murdered in the north of the countryReporters Without Borders expressed its deep concern at the death of Roberto Javier Mora García, editorial director of the newspaper El Mañana, who was murdered on 19 March in the town of Nuevo Laredo bordering the United States.The international press freedom organisation called for the opening of an investigation to identify the killers and to establish whether the murder was linked to his work as a journalist. The motive for the killing so far appears unclear.”No stone should be left unturned. The border between Mexico and the United States, notorious for many kinds of trafficking is known to be dangerous for journalists working on sensitive investigations,” the organisation said.The last time a journalist was murdered in the northeastern Tamaulipas state goes back to 2002.García, who as well as running El Mañana was editor-in-chief of the local financial weekly North Mexico Business, was murdered just outside his home. Investigators said it appeared he was killed around 2am as he returned from work at the newspaper.His body was found about 15 metres away from his vehicle, which had been left with the door open and with the keys still in the ignition. He had been stabbed about 20 times.Police ruled out the possibility of theft as the motive for the crime since his wallet was found on him.García had published several articles about the Gulf cartel, a regional drug-trafficking gang. Heriberto Cantu, the publisher of El Mañana told the Associated Press (AP) news agency that police did not believe the cartel could have been behind the murder.”We cannot dismiss the possibility that it has something to do with the exercise of journalism, or something personal,” Cantu said however.In an article posted on its website, El Mañana attributed the killing to the “climate of violence and instability that has taken hold in Nuevo Laredo”. The daily pointed out that the journalist was the town’s 16th murder victim this year.It also lamented the fact that the investigation had been given to the state prosecutor’s office in Tamaulipas and not to the Mexico City-based federal prosecutor’s office, which had disqualified itself on the grounds this was a “minor crime”. El Mañana stressed the “integrity, ethics and extraordinary rigour” of its editorial director.The last journalist to be killed in Tamaulipas state was Félix Alonso Fernández García, boss of the weekly Nueva Opción. He was shot dead on 18 January 2002, in the town of Miguel Alemán after revealing alleged links between the former mayor and drug-traffickers.Some sources however suggested that the actual articles that the journalist wrote did not touch on sensitive issues and that a dose of cocaine had been found on him.

A total of six national and international press freedom organisations participated in the mission. Its purpose was to establish how far the investigations had progressed and, if appropriate, to criticise any irregularities or gaps. A report will be released in mid-May.The mission met senior staff of the daily El Mañana, the two suspects’ lawyers and relatives, the state of Tamaulipas public prosecutor and a member of the State Commission for Human Rights.Three of the five other organisations taking part in this fact-finding mission – called the “Commission in Memoriam” – were Mexican: the Centro de Estudios Fronterizos y de Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (CEFPDH), Libertad de Información-México (LIMAC) and Centro de Periodismo y Etica Pública (CEPET). The other two were international: PEN Club and Periodistas Frente a la Corrupción (PFC).The Nuevo Laredo police arrested a gay couple, Mario Medina Vázquez and Hiram Oliveros Ortiz, on 28 March for Mora’s murder. The two men were his neighbours. The police claim that Medina suspected Mora of having a relationship with his partner, Oliveros, and killed Mora out of jealousy. Oliveros then helped Medina remove all traces of the murder, according to the police.The state of Tamaulipas prosecutor said a police search of the suspects’ apartment turned up a knife that could have been the murder weapon and traces of the victim’s blood, as well as compromising finger-prints and e-mail messages. The judge however said the investigation is not yet over. A DNA analysis of blood found at the suspects’ home must still be carried out.After allegedly admitting their involvement to police, the two suspects have retracted their supposed confessions, claiming that they were tortured. They told the judge, and then the press, that they were forced to sign depositions in which they first said they were witnesses to the murder and then said they did it. Medina, who has US nationality, has received the support the US consulate in Nuevo Laredo, which has protested about the violence he has undergone.Mora wrote several articles about the activities of the Gulf Cartel, a drug-trafficking organisation operating in the region. His reports highlighted the alleged involvement of police and officials in the trafficking, and the involvement of former policemen known as “Zetas” in extorting businessmen on behalf of the drug traffickers. He also blamed the authorities for the climate of impunity prevailing in the state of Tamaulipas. Mora was recognised locally as a very conscientious and thorough investigative journalist.last_img read more

School staff charged with manslaughter in death of autistic student

first_imgKuzma/iStock(EL DORADO HILLS, Calif.) — A Northern California school and three of its employees have been charged after an autistic student died as a result of being restrained.Guiding Hands School, a former private school in El Dorado Hills, California, and three of its ex-employees were charged with felony involuntary manslaughter on Tuesday, nearly a year after 13-year-old Max Benson died while in the school’s care, authorities said.The school’s executive director, principal and a special education teacher were each charged with manslaughter in connection to the student’s death, according to the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office.Max, who was diagnosed with severe autism, died on Nov. 28, 2018, after he was placed in a prone restraint by the teacher, who claimed he spat on a classmate and became violent, according to police.The student, who was described as being 6 feet tall and 280 pounds, became unresponsive while being restrained. A teacher then began administering CPR until a medic arrived.He was transported to Mercy Hospital of Folsom in critical condition and later to UC Davis Medical Center, where he died two days later, police said.Founded in 1993, the private school offered education to students ages 2 to 21 in small class sizes from kindergarten through 12th grade, according to its website.The California Department of Education later suspended the school’s certification in the wake of the child’s death and it shuttered for good in January, Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV reported.An inspection report from the California Department of Education found sufficient evidence that Guiding Hands staff restrained Benson “for longer than was necessary” and used more than reasonable force, according to KXTV.A spokesperson for Guiding Hands did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment late Tuesday.The three individuals charged will appear for an arraignment on Nov. 13.
