Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape’s apology but is out injured

first_imgWednesday Feb 18, 2015 Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape’s apology but is out injured Jamie Heaslip has accepted the apology offered to him by Pascal Pape on Twitter last night. The French lock faces a disciplinary hearing today to judge whether he will be banned or not for the knee to the back that has possibly ended the tournament for both. France second row Pape was shown a yellow card by referee Wayne Barnes for kneeing Heaslip in the back during the weekend’s Six Nations clash in Dublin, a contest that Ireland won 18-11. He will appear before an independant disciplinary committee in London today.Heaslip was replaced shortly after the incident, and will miss the England match due to the injury, damage to three vertebrae. He may be available to play again in four weeks.“Although this injury causes a good deal of discomfort, it does not impact on the structural integrity of the spine, and once healed should pose no long term issues,” said an Ireland medical report.“Typically this injury is treated akin to a soft tissue injury, according to symptoms. Jamie is already feeling more comfortable and it is hoped that he will be available to play again in approximately four weeks,” it said, also confirming the injury: “fractures of the transverse process of three vertebrae”.Last night, Tuesday, Pape took to twitter to apologise to Heaslip. He wrote in French, saying “Sincerely sorry to have injured @jamieheaslip in this action of the match, not at all my intention to do him any harm #objectivityforsome”, to which Heaslip graciously replied “Thanks for your message. Rugby is a physical game and one accepts that can happen. I accept your apology completely”.French coach Philippe Saint-Andre has defended his man, saying that he didn’t think it looked as though it was a deliberate knee to the back.“When you watch the images of the incident I don’t think you can say it was deliberate,” said Saint-Andre. “However, I said to Pascal you received a yellow card just at the moment we were gaining the upper hand both physically and territorially as we were in their 22.“Although we didn’t concede many points it was still a pivotal moment. You expect something like that from an inexperienced player, not one with over 50 Tests under his belt. It was the worst possible moment for that to happen.”UPDATED VERDICT: Pape has been banned for 10 weeks following two days of hearings in London. The panel ruled that the offence was ‘at the top end of World Rugby’s scale of seriousness’, and banned him for 15 weeks before reducing it by 5 due to his ‘admission of foul play and his experession of remorse for what had occurred’.

Conditions for African farmers improve after land reform

first_imgThe imperialist states are very concerned about the success of the land redistribution program in Zimbabwe.Black Zimbabweans lost their land during the colonial era, beginning in the late 19th century. In 1998 it became clear that the Republic of Zimbabwe in southern Africa would take action regarding long-delayed promises to distribute land to African farmers.Consequently, over the last 14 years, the Zimbabwe government has come under vicious attack by the imperialist states.The country gained national independence in 1980 after more than a decade of armed struggle led by the Zimbabwe African National Union and the Zimbabwe African People’s Union. Both liberation movements joined together during the late 1970s and formed the Patriotic Front to coordinate armed actions and to receive adequate assistance from the Organization of African Unity Liberation Committee and other internationalist forces.Zimbabwe, known under colonialism as Rhodesia, was one of the most prosperous of British colonies. The rich agricultural soil and its vast deposits of diamonds made the country a source of tremendous wealth for mine owners and commercial European-settler farmers.In 2000, a movement of veterans of the revolutionary war, backed up by legislation, seized land controlled by several thousand descendants of British colonialists. These land holdings were broken up into smaller farms, allowing millions of Africans to gain access to agricultural production as stakeholders and not as subservient low-wage workers.The land redistribution program of 2000 aroused tremendous imperialist pressure against the ZANU-PF government (which had subsumed ZAPU in late 1987). Britain, the United States, the European Union and Australia leveled economic sanctions against Zimbabwe.For many years the Western corporate media attacked the land redistribution program, blaming it for the economic crisis in Zimbabwe. Government opponents formed a party, the Movement for Democratic Change, which the displaced white settlers and their allies in the imperialist countries bankrolled.The imperialists and their local allies undertook numerous efforts to plot regime-change strategies against Zimbabwe. The corporate media played an instrumental role in these destabilization programs — to the extent of printing outright falsehoods and provocative appeals for the removal of the sovereign government.Over the last two years, however, economic conditions in Zimbabwe have improved. Zimbabweans discovered new sources of diamonds and defeated a Western effort to prevent these resources from being marketed internationally, thus bringing additional revenues to the state.Economic and political assistance from the Republic of South Africa and the People’s Republic of China helped avoid a total economic collapse. The ZANU-PF ruling party created the “Look East” policy that emphasized trade and other economic agreements with African and Asian states.In 2008, national elections resulted in a political crisis that the West exploited. At the time, the ZANU-PF government, with mediation from then President Thabo Mbeki of the Republic of South Africa, agreed to a Global Political Agreement. This agreement led to the formation of a coalition government with the MDC, which by then had broken into two factions. MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai was appointed prime minister, while President Robert Mugabe of ZANU-PF maintained his post.Since 2008, the country and the government have moved toward stability. At present those involved in the process of drafting a new constitution are finalizing their work, which will lead to another round of national elections.Corporate media’s new view of land programThis July the media published two articles with a more positive view of Zimbabwe’s land redistribution program. Lydia Polgreen reported in the July 20 New York Times, “The success of these small-scale farmers has led some experts to reassess the legacy of Zimbabwe’s forced land redistribution, even as they condemn its violence and destruction.”The Times article still regurgitated the false claims that widespread corruption within the agrarian program favored members of the ZANU-PF ruling party. Nevertheless, it had to admit upon direct observation that “tens of thousands of people got small farm plots under the land reform, and in recent years many of these new farmers overcame early struggles to fare pretty well. … The result has been a broad, if painful, shift of wealth in agriculture from white commercial growers on huge farms to black farmers on much smaller plots of land.”A July 29 Zimbabwe Standard article reported on a slump in the tobacco industry: “Tobacco production had dipped following the chaotic land reform program to 48 million kg in 2008 from the peak of 236 million kg in 2000.”But it goes on to point out that incomes have since risen in that industry: “The rebound in tobacco production started in 2009. Although some tobacco farmers complained about the relatively low prices, most of them were happy with the price and the organized manner in which the crop was sold, unlike in previous years.”Prior to the land redistribution program the tobacco industry was dominated by less than 2,000 white farmers. Today 60,000 farmers, most of whom are African, have raised production levels more than 300 percent in a four-year period.The New York Times article quoted Stuart Mhavei, a farmer who supports the ZANU-PF party of President Mugabe, as saying that his small plot of land has earned him $10,000 this season. He emphasizes his support for the party, asking the question, “Why should one white man have all this?” pointing at the vast land surrounding him. “This is Zimbabwe. Black people must come first.”Implications of Zimbabwe reformsThe land redistribution program in Zimbabwe is being followed by other efforts aimed at creating greater incomes and wealth among the indigenous population. Indigenization programs are aiming to create independent diamond miners and owners of that lucrative industry.The repository of diamonds in Zimbabwe is estimated to be one of the largest in the world. The harnessing of these resources and their equitable distribution could raise living standards tremendously in the country.In the southern Africa region, there is enormous interest in developments related to agrarian reform. In South Africa and Namibia, African populations have not been given back the land stolen by European settlers under colonialism. There are indications that many long for a transformation similar to that taking place in Zimbabwe.The imperialist states are very concerned about the success of the land redistribution program in Zimbabwe. If the same initiative is undertaken in mining and finance, it would threaten even further the grip of international capital on the resources and wealth of the people of southern Africa and the continent as a whole.Progressive forces in the U.S. and other capitalist states should follow developments in Zimbabwe and defend the right of the people to self-determination and sovereignty. Progressive and revolutionary initiatives aimed at the reallocation of wealth should be supported and sanctions against such efforts, as in Zimbabwe, should be opposed and condemned.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Solidarity between French and U.S. workers!

first_imgSud Rail workers at a demonstration in Paris as part of a nationwide strike, France, April 3, 2018.Workers World Party in the United States wants to express its great admiration and total solidarity for the current struggle of French workers against their government’s intention to destroy gains French workers have won over decades of protests and mass movements, through the imposition of austerity and the laying off of 120,000 public service employees.While workers in France do have a constitutional right to strike, the administration of the former Rothschild banker Emmanuel Macron and his prime minister Edouard Philippe have made it clear that they do not intend to bargain. They intend to break the railroad unions: the General Confederation of Labour (CGT), National Union of Autonomous Trade Unions (UNSA), French Democratic Confederation of Labour (CFDT) and SUD-Rail. In that process, they also want to sweep away unions representing sanitation and sewerage workers (éboueurs et égoutiers), the employees of Air France and Electricity of France, and students whose status is being challenged.Workers in the U.S., especially teachers and other workers in education, have been confronting austerity for decades. Teaching in the U.S. is a high-skill, low-pay job. In most states, teachers do not have the legal right to strike and to bargain collectively. U.S. public sector workers and their unions are increasingly under attack.But a successful, albeit illegal, statewide education strike in West Virginia and ongoing teacher walkouts in Oklahoma and Kentucky, indicate a rising sentiment against government-imposed austerity in the U.S.There is an objective basis for solidarity between French and U.S. workers in the current struggles against austerity and for higher wages, better pensions and better working conditions.Long live the solidarity between French and U.S. workers! On to final victory!Workers World Party, USAApril 2018FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Rape accused denies he was fleeing country when stopped at airport…

first_imgWATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A NATIVE of the Ivory Coast who was stopped at the boarding gate in Dublin Airport gate denies that he was trying to flee the jurisdiction before being charged with the alleged rape of his former girlfriend in Limerick.The 26-year-old, who can not be named for legal reasons says that he was not leaving the country because he was aware gardai were looking to speak with him in connection with an alleged incident instead he was travelling to Morocco to buy robes and clothing for the upcoming Muslim Ramadan.During a contested bail hearing at Limerick District Court, Judge O’Kelly heard the defendant say “I was not running away,” as he offered his explanation for attempting to board the flight.Having being detained in the early hours of last Friday morning in the airport, security staff alerted Det Garda Ivan Muldoon and Det Gda Brendan Stokes.

Maryland Case Puts the Brakes on Foreclosures

Next: November Was Hot for Housing Prices Share Save Tagged with: black book 2018 Court of Appeals Foreclosure Legal Update Maryland Maryland Supreme Court Mortgage Servicers Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Editor’s note: This story was originally featured in the January issue of DS News, out now.On June 6, 2017, the Court of Special Appeals, Maryland’s intermediate appellate court, issued an opinion in the combined cases of Blackstone v. Sharma, Sept. 2015 No. 1524, and Shanahan v. Marvastian, Sept. 2015, 1525. This case arose out of challenges filed in two foreclosure cases docketed there and can conservatively be said to have sent shock waves through some servicers and their attorneys in the state.The case has resulted in hundreds, if not thousands of foreclosure cases being placed on hold, with their futures uncertain. Specifically, the Court of Special Appeals upheld the dismissal of two foreclosure actions initiated on behalf of a Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) because the DST was not a licensed collection agency pursuant to the Maryland Collection Agency Licensing Act, Md. Code, Bus. Reg. § 7-101, et seq. (“MCALA”). It also held that any judgment entered as a result of the foreclosure actions would be void. In declaring such matters void, as opposed to merely voidable, the court has cast a cloud on the title of potentially thousands of foreclosures that have been completed since MCALA was enacted in 2007. While MCALA has numerous exceptions (including for licensed banks, credit unions, and mortgage lenders), the licensing requirement applies “whenever the person does business as a collection agency in the State.” Md. Code, Bus. Reg. § 7-301(a). Although it also contains an exception for trust companies, the court here explicitly found that the type of trust in question did not meet the criteria of “trust company.” Notably, MCALA also does not apply if the debt in question was not in default at the time it was acquired.In the wake of this opinion, numerous foreclosures already in process were put on hold, and many new cases were not filed while servicers and attorneys scrubbed files to ascertain if the licensing requirement was applicable. Further, many sales that had already been ratified but where the trustee’s deed had not been recorded were also put on hold, thereby also putting many REO transactions in jeopardy. Many owners of these mortgage loans also have had to set up special entities to transfer loans specifically for the purpose of being able to obtain the license.On November 30, 2017, the Maryland Court of Appeals (Maryland’s highest appellate court) heard oral argument on the appeal filed in response to this opinion, as well as two related cases taken directly on appeal from the circuit court as to the applicability of MCALA to foreclosure proceedings. It is unclear when the Court of Appeals will issue its opinion in the matter.In the meantime, files will stay on hold, and unpaid defaulted loans will continue to weigh on servicers’ and debt owners’ operations. Needless to say, all of the affected parties are anxiously awaiting the outcome of the Court of Appeals ruling.
