The fly-half slotted a last-minute kick to make the Pro14 final Class @Ian_madigan — Sam Davies (@samdavey1993) September 5, 2020 Ulster had to dig themselves out of trouble at several points during their Pro14 semi-final, but the province would ultimately rise to the challenge. Madigan had already nailed a conversion from the touchline to make it 19-19, before stepping up to take the winning kick. It was a fine demonstration of grit.Ulster now head into an all-Ireland Pro14 final, as they face Leinster at the Aviva Stadium at 7.35pm on 12 September.In the aftermath of the big kick, some excited figures took to social media to register their appreciation. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Simon Zebo wasn’t the only star to make a point about Madigan’s mentality – and several others celebrated his focus while considering where he is in his career and what his recent few years have been like.There were also a few light-hearted Tweets about the Irish fly-half. Iceman … nudge @Ian_madigan https://t.co/Xgtw3ysNGV— Amber Reed (@avreed12) September 5, 2020Obviously Edinburgh will be crushed by the result. Head coach Richard Cockerill said post-match: “I’m disappointed that we didn’t understand what we needed to do. “Our international players in those key moments have to step up. It’s about winning the game. It’s about doing the right thing to win a game of knockout rugby and some of our boys clearly don’t understand what that looks like. “I won’t make excuses and say we’re on the right path. We should have won tonight.” The definition of clutch from Ian Madigan— Rúaidhrí O’Connor (@RuaidhriOC) September 5, 2020 Social media reacts to Ian Madigan match-winner for UlsterThere was high drama in the closing stages of the Guinness Pro14 semi-final between Edinburgh and Ulster at Murrayfield last night, as fly-half Ian Madigan slotted an 80th-minute penalty to take a 22-19 win.The ten held his nerve to send the vital kick between the sticks and understandably there were scenes of jubilation as the assistants raised their flags.

Workers in the Catacombs join the protests.Paris, France, June 15 — In recent months, while social conflicts in France have heated up, the corporate media here have fulfilled their role to perfection. They constantly disseminate propaganda aimed at undermining the morale of struggling workers and slavishly relay the lying speeches of President Emmanuel Macron’s government. Backed by high finance, the Macron regime is hiding its intent to systematically destroy public services behind the word “reforms.”After claiming that the numbers of strikers and demonstrators opposed to the government’s wide-ranging neoliberal measures have been diminishing, the media now declare “the imminent end of the railway workers’ strike.” In truth, the most combative unions in the railway sector (CGT, SUD …) are currently discussing the possible continuation of the struggle at the French national railway (SNCF) beyond the initially scheduled end of the strikes on June 28.In fact, simply reading the list of all the strikes that have recently taken place or continue to take place in France would exhaust the airtime of the television news! Commentators who are subservient to the ruling class talk about these conflicts as a “French illness” that should be eradicated. One deputy from the presidential majority has even called this a “strike culture.”We must see this proliferation of social struggles as a reason for optimism. It is in these movements that workers, especially the youngest, are trained. They are relearning how to build indispensable bonds of solidarity and local forms of organization while developing future leaders.Despite the many difficulties encountered, these struggles will gradually increase and bear fruit. Patience is required. Class consciousness is growing, and with it the courage of more and more workers who are leaving behind inertia and resignation.Fast food workers fightThis is especially so since some of these social movements are unusual, even historic. A few examples:The number of unionized fast food employees is increasing sharply. At McDonalds, strikers — some of whom fought for more than six months — demanded better working conditions and wages but also denounced the company owners’ tax evasion and failure to share profits.Workers in other companies no longer hesitate to expose cases of workplace exploitation and abuse. In the wake of the employee mobilization at the Carrefour “big-box” retail stores in France, the movement spread to Belgium, where a hundred Lidl stores had to close during a spontaneous strike.For several months, employees in elder care institutions have been demonstrating to denounce paltry salaries and decry speedups and understaffing. They also denounce poor living conditions for the residents and the exorbitant fees charged.In May, tourists could observe that Paris sanitation and sewer workers were mobilized. These workers sought recognition of the “hardship” of their professions and demanded the right to early retirement.In mid-June farmers blocked 14 oil refineries throughout the country to protest the government’s decision to allow palm oil imports (notably from Indonesia). This oil is intended to feed biofuel production but also threatens the French rapeseed industry.Social unrest deepensGoaded by the latest capitalist drive for privatization, outsourcing and downsizing of the work staff, social unrest is so deep that it even affects professions that never in living memory have been seen to demonstrate.In May, a thousand auditors took to the streets against a bill that would cancel the requirement that small and medium-sized businesses have their accounts certified by accounting firms (which would cause a loss of auditor income).A month earlier, magistrates and lawyers were on strike to protest the Ministry of Justice’s decision to “merge” (in reality, to close) the small-claims courts, which hear claims that do not exceed 5,000 euros ($5,800), and have these claims heard in higher courts. In addition to cuts in budgets and jobs, this move would lead to dehumanized and privatized justice and deter the poorest from initiating legal proceedings to defend their rights.In May, it was the turn of workers at the Catacombs (an underground cemetery where many thousands of skeletons are stored beneath Denfert-Rochereau Square) and the Archaeological Crypt to engage in the longest strike ever held at Paris museums. The employees are demanding “dignified and fair” working conditions, safety for the agents and security at these tourist sites, and a bonus for working underground in difficult conditions.Thus, the strike wave of the spring of 2018 has already drawn new sectors of the working class into struggle and trained rank-and-file leaders of tomorrow.Herrera is a Marxist economist, a researcher at the Centre National Recherche Scientifique, who works at the Centre d’Économie de la Sorbonne, Paris.

February 10, 2017 Find out more Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable RSF_en to go further April 1, 2020 Find out more Organisation September 20, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three murder suspects arrested amid growing risk of pressure on investigators Help by sharing this information News There has been encouraging progress in the investigation into the 7 September murder of Canal 6 TV programme director Pedro Alonso Flores Silva in the northwestern city of Casma. Police say they arrested three suspected perpetrators between 14 and 16 September.They are Emilio José Ciriaco Ágreda, 21, also known as “Macuto,” Rubén Darío Castillo Antaihua, 38, also known as “El Viejo,” and a man so far only identified as “Alex.” During a search of the home of Castillo, who has a police record, the police said they found the murder weapon, as well as a ski mask and two motorcycles allegedly used in the murder.Castillo has reportedly confessed to his involvement, and to recruiting Ciriaco with the intention of just “scaring” the victim. According to the newspaper Cronica Viva, he acted on the orders of a local official who even tried to bribe the investigators. This alleged mastermind’s identity has not so far been released.“The remarkable progress in this murder investigation encourages us in the hope that the police will quickly establish the motive and identify all those responsible,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also hope for similar results in the two other murders of journalists this year, Radio Ollantay programme director Julio Castillo Narváez and BTV Canal 45 programme producer and host José Oquendo Reyes. In all three cases, the truth will emerge only if the investigators are able to resist all forms of pressure.”____________9.09.11 – Second journalist murdered this year, authorities urged to actReporters Without Borders calls on the Peruvian authorities to give clear evidence of a determination to combat impunity after the second murder of a journalist in Peru this year. Shot by masked gunmen near his home in the northwestern city of Casma on 7 September, TV journalist Pedro Alonso Flores Silva died of injuries to the liver and colon yesterday.Aged 36, Flores was the programme director of Casma’s Canal 6 TV station. The Press and Society Institute (IPYS) and the National Association of Journalists (ANP) quoted his wife and fellow journalist, Mercedes Cueva, as saying the murder was politically motivated.Flores had been the target of frequent threats during the past three months for linking the mayor of the nearby district of Comandante Noel, Marco Rivera Huerta, to alleged corruption cases. The mayor, who had brought a defamation action against Flores, has denied having anything to do with his murder.“The circumstances surrounding Flores’ murder have much in common with those surrounding the murder of fellow journalist Julio Castillo Narváez on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day.” Reporters Without Borders said. “Both were in the north. Both had covered sensitive stories. Both had received the same kinds of threats. And a political motive was suspected in both cases. “Given the lack of progress in the Castillo murder – the arrests of two possible suspects but no other results – we fear that the investigation into the Flores murder could be just as slow. Experience has unfortunately shown a very high level of impunity for murders of journalists when politicians, judges or police officers are suspected of being in any way involved.“We offer our condolences to Flores’ family and colleagues, and we reiterate our appeal to the government and the highest judicial authorties to lose no time in demonstrating a strong determination to combat impunity and defend the right to report the news.”Two signals of such a determination would be the decriminalization of media offences and the immediate release of Paul Garay Ramírez, a programme producer for Visión 47 TV and a correspondent for Radio La Exitosa, who was sentenced to three years in prison by a court in the east-central region of Ucayali on 19 April for allegedly defaming a prosecutor.Garay’s sentenced has since been halved but Reporters Without Borders supports the Peruvian journalists’ groups that say he should be freed at once.

They were accused of murdering a law student by firing shots at him.Reappreciating the evidence on record, the Apex Court bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud observed that the ballistics evidence connecting the empty cartridges and the bullets recovered from the body of the deceased with an alleged weapon of offence is contradictory and suffers from serious infirmities. Regarding the eye witness testimony, the bench, also comprising Justices Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee, said that there is a grave element of doubt as to whether they were witnesses at the scene of occurrence. The Court observed that the failure of the prosecution in a given case, to examine a ballistics expert has to be assessed bearing in mind the overall context of the nature of the evidence which is available. “When direct evidence of an unimpeachable character is available and the nature of injuries is consistent with the direct evidence, the examination of a ballistics expert need not be insisted upon as a condition to the prosecution proving its case.”, the bench said. The prosecution cited a ballistics examiner as a witness and yet, did not lead his evidence, the bench noted. At this juncture, the prosecution contended that an adverse inference should be drawn against the accused for refusing to submit themselves to a TIP. To address this argument, the bench summarized the principles regarding TIP:(i) The purpose of conducting a TIP is that persons who claim to have seen the offender at the time of the occurrence identify them from amongst the other individuals without tutoring or aid from any source. An identification parade, in other words, tests the memory of the witnesses, in order for the prosecution to determine whether any or all of them can be cited as eyewitness to the crime; (ii) There is no specific provision either in the CrPC or the Indian Evidence Act, 187218 which lends statutory authority to an identification parade. Identification parades belong to the stage of the investigation of crime and there is no provision which compels the investigating agency to hold or confers a right on the accused to claim a TIP; (iii) Identification parades are governed in that context by the provision of Section 162 of the CrPC;(iv) A TIP should ordinarily be conducted soon after the arrest of the accused, so as to preclude a possibility of the accused being shown to the witnesses before it is held; (v) The identification of the accused in court constitutes substantive evidence; (vi) Facts which establish the identity of the accused person are treated to be relevant under Section 9 of the Evidence Act; (vii) A TIP may lend corroboration to the identification of the witness in court, if so required; (viii) As a rule of prudence, the court would, generally speaking, look for corroboration of the witness’ identification of the accused in court, in the form of earlier identification proceedings. The rule of prudence is subject to the exception when the court considers it safe to rely upon the evidence of a particular witness without such, or other corroboration; (ix) Since a TIP does not constitute substantive evidence, the failure to hold it does not ipso facto make the evidence of identification inadmissible; (x) The weight that is attached to such identification is a matter to be determined by the court in the circumstances of that particular case; (xi) Identification of the accused in a TIP or in court is not essential in every case where guilt is established on the basis of circumstances which lend assurance to the nature and the quality of the evidence; and (xii) The court of fact may, in the context and circumstances of each case, determine whether an adverse inference should be drawn against the accused for refusing to participate in a TIP. However, the court would look for corroborating material of a substantial nature before it enters a finding in regard to the guilt of the accused.While acquitting the accused, the bench, applied the above principles, and observed:”Consequently, in a case, such as the present, the Court would be circumspect about drawing an adverse inference from the facts, as they have emerged. In any event, as we have noticed, the identification in the course of a TIP is intended to lend assurance to the identity of the accused. The finding of guilt cannot be based purely on the refusal of the accused to undergo an identification parade. In the present case, we have already indicated the presence of the alleged eyewitnesses PW4 and PW5 at the scene of the occurrence is seriously in doubt. The ballistics evidence connecting the empty cartridges and the bullets recovered from the body of the deceased with an alleged weapon of offence is contradictory and suffers from serious infirmities. Hence, in this backdrop, a refusal to undergo a TIP assumes secondary importance, if at all, and cannot survive independently in the absence of it being a substantive piece of evidence.”Case: Rajesh @ Sarkari vs. State of Haryana [Criminal Appeal No. 1648 of 2019] Coram: Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira BanerjeeCounsel: Sr. Adv Rakesh Khanna and Adv Deepak ThukralClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Story

Student Government Association’s (SGA) Council of Committee Chairs (CCC) sought to continue last year’s goal of transparency as well as increase student attendance in events this semester, CCC director and vice president of external affairs Katie Stare said.Stare, a senior, said the 18 committee chairs and co-chairs work to address student interests and needs in the most effective way possible. The 12 committees include alumnae, athletic, community, first-years’ concerns, food services, international, market research and media, mission, social concerns, Sophia Program, sustainability and technology.“Of the 12 committees, the media chair has been the one that has seen the most changes this year,” Stare said. “Katie Calhoun, who is the chair of the committee, has worked extremely hard to make sure all of the SGA events are advertised on all social media outlets. She also personally designs the t-shirts for many of the events.“Katie[Calhoun] has been a huge help this year in furthering our overarching goal in SGA to improve student participation and attendance.”Stare said the committee chairs and co-chairs meet on a weekly basis to update one another on issues that come up, student feedback on events or their upcoming plans and goals.“We are a very collaborative group, and as one of our main goals this year is to have every committee planning more events in order to best utilize our budgets, it’s great to have these weekly meetings so we can all join forces and inspire each other to be successful,” she said. “Our CCC budget is larger than it has been in the past, so we are all trying our best to reap the most benefits from this upgrade.”Five of the committees put on “big weeks” on campus to highlight different issues among the campus community and raise awareness of different social concerns. These “big weeks” take extensive planning — the committees work months in advance to design the weeks — and thus, the committees’ duties are mostly narrowed to one specific focus.“I think that’s something that could definitely be improved,” international co-chair and senior Catherine Sullivan said. “Right now, it’s like the committee chairs have their ‘big weeks’ to focus on, and then they are pretty much done for the year after the week takes place.“My chair is one of the few positions that actually has to think of one or two events for every month, since I don’t have a ‘big week’ to plan for. It helps me involve my issue of the international community at Saint Mary’s in events throughout the year.”Stare said the “big weeks” that have taken place already this fall semester have been Support a Belle, Love a Belle (SABLAB) and Food Week. SABLAB was organized by social concerns co-chairs and seniors Kaitlyn Tarullo and Chloe Deranek, and Food Week was planned by food services chair and sophomore Mary Kate Luft and sustainability co-chairs Chelsey Fattal and Eleanor Jones, both juniors. (Editor’s note: Luft is a Viewpoint copyeditor at The Observer. Fattal is a News writer.)“I was really impressed with both of the ‘big weeks’ that have happened so far,” Stare said. “I think what made the weeks so successful were their emphases on diversity.”“SABLAB had the student panel with a lot of different mental illnesses being represented and talked about, and then the week concluded with Mr. [Tom] Seeberg coming to talk and be an inspiration for all of us,” she said. “Similarly, Food Week incorporated different sorts of food but also a yoga event, so healthy eating and living were shown working hand-in-hand. Diversity is something we always try to accommodate in all SGA events, so these weeks did a great job integrating that goal.”The CCC will be especially busy helping the alumnae and mission committees and social concerns committee plan Heritage Week and Love Your Body Week, respectively, in the spring semester, Stare said.“Since student attendance at the events that have already happened this year has been greatly improved, we hope that in the ‘big weeks’ to come, the same sort of turn out will occur,” she said. “It’s amazing what the small but mighty Saint Mary’s community can do when we collaborate and come together to unite behind certain causes and events.”The Council of Committee Chairs has been successful in facilitating the 12 committees’ events and ambitions, aimed to promote student participation in SGA events to build a strong community and utilize the allocated budgets in fruitful ways.
