Flying in: George Pisi dives over in the corner to score a brilliant try for Samoa at the Millennium StadiumBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellDEMOLITION DERBY. Those are the two words that spring to mind after this game. The hits were fearsome, the tackle contest was ferocious and Samoa so effectively shut Wales down that the hosts were unable to offer any significant threat in attack for the second week running. Samoa got off to a cracking start, Fa’atoina Autagavaia scoring a try inside two minutes, and wrapped the win up with two second-half tries – George Pisi with a great finish in the corner and Johnny Leota pouncing on a loose ball in the closing moments. Wales’ points came from an Ashley Beck intercept try and Leigh Halfpenny’s boot.General: Samoa No 9 Kahn Fotuali’iKey momentTaiasina Tuifu’a’s break in the opening minute set the tone for the whole match. He beat nearly a handful of Wales defenders to make it into the 22 and the ball was then spread wide for the opening try. Samoa had come to play and Wales were immediately on the back foot.Star manLeigh Halfpenny was superb – a rock under the high ball and accurate with the boot – while Jamie Roberts produced some of the biggest hits of the game, some feat when playing Samoa. But it was Kahn Fotuali’i who was the standout in this match. The Ospreys scrum-half bossed the game, ordering his forwards around the pitch and deciding when and where  to spread the ball wide. He was the general as Samoa condemned Wales to defeat.Room for improvementSamoa’s win has highlighted the need for the Pacific Islanders to have more regular top-level competition (a quick look at the players’ boots shows how professional they are these days!). Tier One nations – Australia and New Zealand in particular – must tour Samoa, Fiji and Tonga regularly and Super Rugby should look at introducing a franchise from the South Seas. Over to the IRB.Wales need to improve significantly if they are to even contain the All Blacks next week. They were caught out defensively after a couple of turnovers but their biggest worry should be the dearth of creativity. They simply don’t look like scoring tries and the Samoans shut down their ball-carriers with worrying ease.Oh – and the scrum. That disintegrated in the second half, Samoa winning a succession of penalties, so Wales need to do a lot of work on that this week.Finally, there were too many dangerous tackles that went unpunished in Cardiff. Using arms is a prerequisite in a tackle. If you don’t, you must be punished. It’s time for match officials to clamp down.Just kick it: Wales full-back Leigh HalfpennyIn quotes – winnersSamoa captain David Lemi: “This was an opportunity to help us make the top eight and have a good ranking for the World Cup draw. If you stop Wales’ go-forward men, you stop their game. Wales strength is their tight five and if you stop them going forwards and the backs get slow ball, they can’t play rugby.” TAGS: Northampton SaintsSamoa LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Journalist to return to Russia after top investigator guarantees his safety

first_img News News News Novaya Gazeta deputy editor Sergei Sokolov has announced that he will return to Russia this week following an apology from Gen. Alexander Bastrykin, the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, for threatening to kill him (see below). The death threat caused a major outcry in Russia.Gen. Bastrykin and the newspaper’s editor, Dmitry Muratov apologised to each other during a meeting in the presence of representatives of leading news media on 14 June and Bastrykin gave a guarantee that both Sokolov and Novaya Gazeta’s reporters in the Russian Caucasus would be safe. The two men shook hands at the end of the meeting and said their differences had beenresolved.Muratov said the important thing was that the demands he made in his open letter had been satisfied. But many aspects of the case are still unexplained. Gen. Bastrykin has admitted “flying off the handle” but still denies taking Sokolov to a forest outside Moscow to intimidate him.——————————————————————————————–13.06.2012 – Novaya Gazeta deputy editor flees into exile after threat from top copReporters Without Borders is appalled to learn that Gen. Alexander Bastrykin, the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, an agency with powers similar to the FBI, personally threatened to kill Sergei Sokolov, the deputy editor of the independent Moscow-based tri-weekly Novaya Gazeta, because of his critical coverage of his agency.The press freedom organization also voices its full support for the journalists who are currently staging a protest in Moscow about the threat, some of whom were arrested illegally.“How ironic,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Gen. Bastrykin is one of Russia’s top police officers and is in charge of the investigation into Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya’s 2006 murder. Yet he explicitly threatened a representative of the same newspaper, one that has become the symbol of the martyrdom of independent journalists in Russia.“With a total of five of its journalists killed in connection with their work, Novaya Gazeta has paid a high price for its determination to do its duty to report the news. It is more than shocking that Bastrykin played on the failure to punish these murders and suggested that the police and justice system would protect those who murder journalists.”In an open letter to Bastrykin in today’s issue, Novaya Gazeta editor Dmitry Muratov accused him of organizing a disturbing one-on-one meeting in a forest with Sokolov on 4 June at which he threatened to have the journalist killed. If safety guarantees are not given to Sokolov, who has since left the country, other methods, including judicial ones, will be used, the letter said.Journalists have been demonstrating outside the Investigative Committee’s Moscow headquarters today in support of Sokolov and the rest of the Novaya Gazeta staff. Although they are demonstrating one by one, a form of protest that does not need any permission, the police briefly detained the first demonstrators, most of whom were in the process of preparing placards at the time.Radio Echo of Moscow deputy editor Vladimir Varfolomeyev, Alina Grebneva, Olga Bychkova and Natella Boltianskaya were among the journalists who were detained. They were taken to the Basmanny district police station. The well-known journalist and dissident Alexander Podrabinek was also detained.Bastrykin’s threats were prompted by a 4 June article by Sokolov about the fact that a former parliamentary representative for the southwestern region of Krasnodar had just been sentenced to nothing more than a fine although he had been found guilty of protecting a criminal gang responsible for the deaths of 12 people in 2010. Sokolov’s article also accused Bastrykin of colluding with this gang.Bastrykin invited Sokolov to a public event linked to the case the same day, during which Sokolov apologized for the “pointlessly virulent words” he used in his article. Bastrykin refused to accept his apology and summarily ordered him to leave the room. In his open letter, Muratov said he found this to be fair, but added, “unfortunately, the story did not stop there.”On returning from this event, Sokolov was bundled into Bastrykin bodyguards’ car and, without explanation, was driven to an isolated spot in a forest on the outskirts of Moscow for a one-on-one meeting with Bastrykin. According to the open letter, Bastrykin threatened to kill him, said what he thought about Novaya Gazeta, its editorial policies and Anna Politkovskaya “in a manner that could not have been more expressive” and said that if something happened to Sokolov, “he would be the one who led the investigation.”The Investigative Committee declined to comment when contacted by Reporters Without Borders.Follow the protest outside the Investigative Committee live here or here On Twitter: #оккупайскOn Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/groups/456057601089902/members/ Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Help by sharing this information (Photo: Yuri Timofeyev, Radio Svoboda) June 19, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist to return to Russia after top investigator guarantees his safety to go further June 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing May 21, 2021 Find out more RSF_en RussiaEurope – Central Asia News Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption Follow the news on Russia RussiaEurope – Central Asia Organisation May 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The Western Festival and PCA rodeo on Saturday might have set attendance records for Saturday night rodeos.“We had a great rodeo weekend at Cattleman Park,” said B.B. Palmer, park director. “We got off to a rocky start Friday night with a horse going down in the bareback event. It was the first horse out of the gate, and it kept bucking and came down on the fence. It was feared that its neck might be broken but fortunately it’s not. She may not rodeo anymore, but she’s a good brood mare and she’ll be kept for that.”But, all in all, it was a great rodeo and a successful one,” Palmer said. “We had 212 cowboys and cowgirls to participate on Friday and Saturday, and in slack and that was a good number. The times were fast and the riding was furious. Pike County Cattlemen’s Rodeo one of best ever Published 3:00 am Tuesday, August 25, 2015 Skip By Jaine Treadwell “We had one of the best announcers around in Clint Allemand. He kept the audience informed and entertained. We hope to have him back every time. Jake Willcox is a young clown, but you wouldn’t know it the way he had the fans laughing and having a good time.”Nearly 200 kids participated in the Western Festival Saturday afternoon, and Palmer said the children had loads of fun and the parents had just as much fun watching them.“It’s always good to see kids coming out and enjoying the rodeo and the Western Festival will be a part of the rodeo, hopefully, from now on.” By Secrets Revealed Palmer said many parents took advantage of the free kids’ tickets to bring the family out to enjoy the rodeo.“Rodeo is good, clean family entertainment,” he said. “This year’s rodeo was about as perfect as we’ve had. Of course, there’s no perfect weekend or no perfect weather for rodeo. But we sure had a good one. The Cattlemen were happy, the cowboys and cowgirls were happy, the kids were happy and I think the fans were happy. That’s just about as perfect as it gets.” Email the author Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Palmer said the Cattlemen plan events for the kids at each rodeo.“At intermission, we always have the calf scramble where the kids come into the area and try to take a ribbon off a calf’s tail,” he said. “We also had the Gold Rush where kids searched in hay for quarters and we had mutton bustin’ and the kids tired to ride a bucking sheep.” Book Nook to reopen Print Article Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Daylast_img read more
