Barden left out of Essenta’s top team

first_imgWednesday 17 November 2010 8:49 pm Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp THE CREATION of Essenta has forced Northern Foods chief executive Stefan Barden out of the firm, after the chairmen of the two firms omitted him from the rejigged executive team. The chairmen of Northern and Greencore, old friends Anthony Hobson and Ned Sullivan, thrashed out the make-up of the combined board in private meetings over the last three months. Hobson will become chairman of the enlarged group, with Sullivan as his deputy.Greencore’s chief executive Patrick Coveney was chosen to head the new company, leaving Northern’s chief executive out of the final line-up.A spokesperson for Northern Foods said the company would make an announcement about Barden’s future in due course. A source close to Barden said: “Stefan has given his full support to the merger. He is still working with the business during the interim period, helping to integrate the businesses, but after this he will move elsewhere.“He was fully in the loop during the negotiations but the two chairmen sat down and discussed the final line-up for the new board between themselves.”Northern’s Simon Herrick was appointed group finance director, after his Greencore counterpart Geoff Doherty decided to step down.“Putting the new board together was interesting,” Herrick told City A.M.. “My role was relatively easy, but the other roles were a bit trickier. But the chairmen of the two companies sorted the rest of the board.” center_img More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeWolf & ShepherdNFL Star Rob Gronkowski’s Favorite ShoesWolf & ShepherdBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure SolutionBlood Pressure For LifeWhy Doctors May No Longer Prescribe Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure For LifeThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailDaily Finance StoriesChrissy Metz, 40, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoDaily Finance StoriesTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBleacherBreaker4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

first_imgSunday Jun 22, 2014 South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales A dramatic late penalty try denied Wales a first ever win in South Africa, as the Springboks fought back twice to snatch victory at the death. It was an agonising 31-30 defeat for the Welsh, who led for 78 minutes before referee Steve Walsh’s big decision. After a tense start to the game, in which Wales put up far more of a fight than last week, the visitors shot out to 17-0 lead following tries to Jamie Roberts and the outstanding Alex Cuthbert.Late in the half the Springboks came back, putting enourmous pressure on the Welsh close to the tryline, leading to two yellow cards and a penalty try. By halftime the Boks trailed by just three points, 17-14, but Wales started the second well, scoring a controversial try through Ken Owens.Dan Biggar extended the lead to 13 points with ten minutes remaining, as the Springboks trailed 30-17 and looked set for their first ever loss to Wales at home, after a performance that was anything but what they displayed in Durban a week earlier.Willie Le Roux had a strong second half though, scoring a try himself and helping Cornal Hendricks to not only a try, but an opportunity to score in the corner with time almost up.Wales fullback Liam Williams came in for what was an incredible try saving tackle, but made with no use of the arms, so Walsh stepped up and after conferring with the TMO, dramatically awarded a penalty try in what one has to say was one of the most dramatic decisions of recent times.Biggar came close with a drop goal in the final seconds, but it went wide and South Africa hung on to take the series 2-0 ahead of a meeting with Scotland in Port Elizabeth next weekend. “As a collective, we can be proud moving forward,” said Wales tour captain Alun-Wyn Jones. “This is not the result we would have wanted going into the off season, but definitely the performance.”Following the match prop Samson Lee received a citing for an alleged second half headbutt that occurred shortly before the Owens try in the second half. The hearing was last night but the result has been deferred until midweek. It was a Test match of epic proportions, with multiple talking points, so feel free to discuss in the comments rather than have each and every incident or dramatic moment written about here.

What Mumia means to the youth

first_imgThe following talk was given by Christian Cobb at a June 1 forum on “Mumia Abu-Jamal Victories and Historic MOVE Conference” in New York City, which also featured MOVE members Pam Africa and Ramona Africa; lawyers Bob Boyle and Rachel Wolkenstein; and long-time Puerto Rican activist Esperanza Martell. The meeting was chaired by Suzanne Ross from the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal.Mumia Abu-JamalI’m here today to talk about what Mumia Abu-Jamal means to the youth. I will do that by talking about what he means to me. Prior to getting involved with Workers World Party, I had not heard of Mumia Abu-Jamal. When I stepped through these doors, I couldn’t not hear the name Mumia Abu-Jamal: from stories of other people’s visits to his court cases to the necessity of his freedom and to the impact he had, has, and will have as a freed man on the movement.So I began to learn and I began to share in the inspiration that my new comrades shared about this amazing man. From stories about Mumia joining the Black Panthers when he was 15 years old to him standing up against Mayor Rizzo in the 1970s to how he was also a MOVE supporter. Then I learned more about how he was framed for the death of a white cop in 1981 and sentenced to death in 1982.We all know the real reason why he was sentenced. It was because he was a Black Panther and a Black revolutionary.That is why when I heard that there was a new court hearing, all I had to know was where do I sign up. Myself and other comrades went down to Philly to pack the courtroom and to join in with demonstrations outside demanding the freedom of Mumia as well as all political prisoners.I stayed outside, where I learned the chant: “Brick-by-brick, wall-by-wall, we’re going to free Mumia Abu-Jamal!” Many of us lined the sidewalk chanting, holding up signs and passing out literature to those walking by and to those going to and from the courthouse. We also wished Mumia a “Happy Birthday” as well, since it was, in fact, his birthday that day.Finally, Mumia’s lawyers came out and spoke about how the hearing had gone. They talked about how they had fought to get a right to discovery on former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Ronald D. Castille. They stated that they didn’t know how long it was going to take to get the judge’s decision.But in that space, surrounded by Mumia’s supporters, hope was everywhere. If you breathed, it filled your lungs. Everyone knew he would win the right to discovery. Everyone knew that one day Mumia would be free.Now, Mumia has won the right to discovery on that judge, who should have never been his judge in the first place. Now he is one step closer to being free!He will be free! Leonard Peltier will be free! The Move 9 will be free! Just like Oscar López Rivera was freed. Just like Chelsea Manning was freed. All political prisoners will be free! Free them all!So I came away inspired and motivated, having seen the impact that People Power can have on a case, and seeing the impact that Mumia had on everyone who was gathered there, especially the varying generations.All the work that the elders have done is impressive. And they have done a lot of work. Workers World Party has been involved in the fight to free Mumia since 1995. That’s now over 20 years. The party was vital to a huge 1995 rally, where over 10,000 people filled the streets of Philly to protest Mumia’s execution date. And they stopped his death.The fight kept continuing to 2010, when Mumia was successfully taken off of death row.This fight has continued for so long because Mumia has been able to inspire each succeeding generation, from the 1980s to the 1990s to now. Through the work he continues to do even now behind bars and at the age of 63, he is able to reach the youth. He still talks about various struggles that allow him to unite the movement, to generalize the struggle, and to serve as a symbol for anti-capitalism and anti-imperialism.Mumia is a symbol of hope for the oppressed.This is why it is vital for the youth and newer comrades to take up the fight to free Mumia. We have to work to sustain and build upon the work that was done before us. We have to invigorate the movement.It is up to us to see the fight through to its conclusion: the freedom of Mumia Abu-Jamal! Free political prisoners! Free them all!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Former Frog Arrieta Throws No-Hitter

first_img + posts Associated Presshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/associated-press/ This picture was taken after Arrieta’s first no-hitter, against the Dodgers last September. He threw his second tonight, against the Reds. Associated Press ReddIt Facebook Twitter Linkedin printTCU alumnus and current Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta threw his first career no-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night.Arrieta was lights-out on the mound, striking out a season-high 12. He looked ready for lights out afterward, slipping into one-piece pajamas decorated with moustaches for the overnight flight home.Fitting, since the 29-year-old right-hander had thought about throwing a no-hitter since he was a kid. His grandfather witnessed one of Nolan Ryan’s no-hitters in Texas.“You see other guys around the league do it and you want to be a part of something like that,” Arrieta said. “So it’s not only special for me and my family and friends, but for the organization and my teammates. They embraced me after the game, and it was extremely special to see how excited they were for what I was able to do.”The kiddie attire was suggested before the game by manager Joe Maddon, one of his colorful apparel themes to build team unity. The Cubs embraced the goofiness an hour after the final out, coming onto the Dodger Stadium field in their brightly colored PJs to pose for photos.Arrieta tossed the sixth no-hitter in the majors this season with the benefit of a close call by official scorer Jerry White. He charged Starlin Castro with a third-inning error when Kike Hernandez reached on a one-hopper hit right at the second baseman, although several players on both sides believed it should have been ruled a hit.Arrieta thought so, too.“He hit it pretty well. I think (the call) could have gone either way,” he said. “I wasn’t aware that it was an error until I think an inning or two later. It was kind of out of sight, out of mind. But even if it was a hit, I would have kept the same mindset.”White gave Castro an error after he tried to make the play on an in-between hop. The ball bounced off him and rolled away, allowing Hernandez to reach first.“If he stays down on the ball, he makes the play,” White said. “He came up thinking the ball was coming up. The ball was hit right at him and he didn’t have to move to make the play.”White saw the play four times live, on a TV replay in the press box and twice in slow motion in the television video room.“I had no thought even at the time to change it,” he said.Hernandez was sacrificed to second before Arrieta struck out Jimmy Rollins to end the inning.“It should have been a hit,” Hernandez said. “I knew if we didn’t get another hit they weren’t going to change it. He overmatched us tonight and they gave him the benefit of the doubt.”Arrieta (17-6) walked one and became the first 17-game winner in the big leagues by throwing baseball’s third no-hitter in less than three weeks.“He has that kind of stuff nightly,” Maddon said. “It’s really crazy. The ball looks like a whiffle ball from the side. You can see the break on the slider and the curveball. Right now he’s pitching at a different level.”Mike Fiers blanked the NL West leaders 3-0 on Aug. 21 in Houston. Never before had Los Angeles been no-hit twice in one season.“The last one bothered me more,” manager Don Mattingly said. “I thought we got out of the strike zone and weren’t ready to play. Tonight didn’t look anything like Houston.”Carl Crawford nearly broke up the no-hit bid with two outs in the seventh, but Castro caught Crawford’s line drive up the middle with a running grab.As the Dodger Stadium crowd roared, Arrieta struck out all three batters in the ninth: Justin Turner, Rollins and Chase Utley. Those were the same three hitters, in a different order, that Fiers retired to finish his gem.With his 116th pitch, Arrieta fanned Utley on a breaking ball to end it. The pitcher was mobbed by teammates near the mound, and they jumped their way in a huddle over to near the Cubs’ dugout where they high-fived Arrieta.“I was asking Dan Haren and a couple of the guys in the clubhouse, ‘How did I get the last three outs?’” Arrieta said. “Everything happens so fast. After the Utley strikeout, it was just a little relief and excitement, waiting for my teammates to mob me and waiting for the Gatorade bath. That was a great feeling.”Arrieta tossed the 14th no-hitter in team history and became the first Cubs pitcher to throw one since Carlos Zambrano on Sept. 14, 2008, against Houston in a game that was moved to Milwaukee because of Hurricane Ike.Arrieta helped the Cubs snap a four-game skid on the last night of their six-game West Coast trip. He finished August with a 6-0 record, tying Boston’s Joe Kelly as the only pitchers with that many wins in the month.The right-hander lowered his ERA to 0.43 in August while becoming the first Cubs pitcher with that many wins in the month since Rick Sutcliffe in 1984.Kris Bryant hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Alex Wood. The Cubs had 13 hits and stopped the Dodgers’ five-game winning streak.Wood (9-9) gave up eight hits in six innings. The left-hander struck out seven and walked one.Hisashi Iwakuma of the Seattle Mariners pitched a no-hitter Aug. 12 against Baltimore. Cole Hamels of Philadelphia, San Francisco rookie Chris Heston and Washington ace Max Scherzer also have thrown no-hitters this season.The major league record for most in a season since 1900 is seven, done in 1990, 1991 and 2012.SO CLOSEArrieta had come close to making history before.He threw a one-hit shutout against Cincinnati last Sept. 16 at Wrigley Feld, allowing his first hit to Brandon Phillips with one out in the eighth.Last year, Arrieta became the first Cubs pitcher since 1950 to take a no-hitter into the seventh inning three times in one season. Two of those came in consecutive starts, making him the first to do so since Toronto’s Dave Stieb in June 1988.

Local and international media defense organizations express alarm over cybercrime law adopted today in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

first_img Follow the news on OECS OECSAmericas Online freedoms Freedom of expressionInternet OECS – General Manager of Grenada Broadcasting Network censors coverage of staff protest We the undersigned organizations defending freedom of the press and access to information are deeply concerned by the cybercrime law adopted today in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Several provisions of this bill pose a serious threat to freedom of the press, the free flow of online information, and public debate. Defamation in print, written and broadcast media is punishable by up to two years’ imprisonment under Saint Vincent’s penal code, pre-dating the adoption of the Cybercrime Law, but the new legislation extends criminal defamation to online content. In addition to broadening criminal defamation to include online expression, the law also introduces worryingly vague and subjective definitions of cyber-harassment and cyber-bullying, both of which are punishable by imprisonment. The negative value and chilling effect that criminal defamation places on freedom of expression and of the press have been well noted at the local, regional and international level, and states have been repeatedly called on to abolish criminal defamation laws. The issue of criminal defamation has particular importance in the Caribbean, where a similar law was adopted in Grenada in 2013 and subsequently amended after international outcry. Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana are currently considering similar legislation now under critical review by national, regional, and international stakeholders. The steps taken today in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to strengthen criminal defamation laws and stifle online dissent and discussion could reverse the positive legislative trend in the Caribbean and serve as a negative example for Saint Vincent’s regional neighbors. It is therefore our view that the law as adopted today must be revised and criminal defamation must be abolished, and we urge the government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to do so as soon as possible. Association of Caribbean Media Workers (ACM) Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) International Press Institute (IPI) Reporters Without Borders (RSF)Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is a member of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), which ranks 30th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

I am delighted to say that this idea has truly captured the public’s imagination. We have received hundreds of nominations and heard incredible stories of teachers who have gone above and beyond for their students and their communities.“The nominations highlighted teachers dealing with issues such as homelessness, mental health, immigration, unplanned pregnancies, gender identity support, community regeneration, and climate change.  They were submitted by schoolchildren, parents, and people whose school days are long behind them but who remember their teachers with great fondness and gratitude.“I congratulate Sinead, and all the teachers recognised and celebrated at the gala event.  Their awards are hugely well deserved.”Sinead was selected as the Munster awardee for her unstinting dedication to her students, consistently going the “extra mile” and for the manner in which she fosters and cultivates a culture of inclusion for all within the school system. Sinead constantly attends workshops and seminars outside school hours and is strongly involved in the deaf community, supporting families to bring their children together outside of school. Sinead was nominated by parent Rachel Broderick whose son, Daniel, is a student of Sinead’s.Further information about Teachers Inspire Ireland – and all the teachers who were recognised at last night’s event – is available at www.teachersinspire.ie.

Moved by Public Prosecutor Amit Prasad, the modification is sought on the ground that certain prisoners convicted of heinous crimes are misusing the order of the court which has automatically extended the interim bail granted to prisoners in light of the pandemic for another 45 days. Today, the Special Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel, Justice Siddharth Mridul, and Justice Talwant Singh has directed the Delhi Government to submit an affidavit stating the total number of inmates in the central prison who are COVID positive. The State also has to inform the court as to how many prisoners have been released so far on interim bail, and how many of such prisoners are due to surrender next month. Mr Prasad, while moving the application, submitted that many accused persons first seek interim bail of one week on ‘humanitarian grounds’ and then never come back to the prison by claiming relief under the extension of ‘COVID bails’ granted by the Full Bench of the Delhi High Court in a suo moto matter. Mr Prasad further informed the court that two jails in Mandoli have been notified as isolation wards for incoming persons. ‘These jails have a total of 248 isolation wards’, Mr Prasad submitted. At this point, the court asked the State how will it manage to isolate thousands of returning prisoners when it only has 248 isolation wards? In light of these submissions, the court also directed the Director General (Prisons) to be present on the date of hearing. The court will next take up this matter on October 16.
