We will not take any risks.”There is, though, no question of further changes being made to the formats despite concerns about an increase in Covid-19 cases in and around Lisbon, and more recent worries in Germany about a rise in cases there.UEFA also recently insisted it was “confident” there would be no more delays despite cases of coronavirus emerging among players at Real Madrid and Sevilla.It is, in any case, now or never.Indeed, the preliminary round of next season’s Champions League begins next Saturday, the same day Bayern Munich entertain Chelsea and Napoli visit Barcelona in their outstanding last 16 second legs.Before that, Manchester City defend a 2-1 first-leg lead at home against Real on Friday as Pep Guardiola’s side target Champions League glory on the back of the club’s success at getting a two-year ban from the competition overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.The winner of that tie will face Juventus or Lyon in the quarter-finals in Lisbon.It is the Europa League which is first up, though, with the last 16 being completed on Wednesday and Thursday.Two ties — Inter Milan against Getafe and Sevilla against Roma — will go ahead as one-off ties in Germany as the first legs were never played.Six second legs will also be played with the winners heading to Germany for the last eight.Among the ties to be completed is Manchester United’s against Austrian side LASK, which will be a formality for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team after they won 5-0 in the first leg in March.Their form since the Premier League resumed in mid-June has been excellent and they have already sealed a place in the 2020-21 Champions League, but now they want to finish this never-ending season with a trophy.“Now our focus is on the Europa League because this is a really good trophy and we want to win,” Bruno Fernandes told MUTV.“I came to Manchester to win trophies. We need to play every game to win. If we go into the Europa League and win every game, we know we’ll win the trophy.”United, Europa League winners in 2017, could yet find themselves facing Premier League rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in the semi-finals in Cologne on August 16 should both teams get there.Wolves entertain Greek champions Olympiakos on Thursday having drawn 1-1 in the first leg of their last-16 tie.Their campaign started more than a year ago now, with a 2-0 win over Northern Irish side Crusaders in the second qualifying round on July 25, 2019.Extending it by another couple of weeks would do them no harm.

Canterbury into ITM Cup final after action packed semi with Wellington

first_imgSunday Oct 31, 2010 Canterbury into ITM Cup final after action packed semi with Wellington Canterbury are on track to pick up their third consecutive National Provincial Championship after they beat Wellington 57-41 in a frenetic ITM Cup semi final in Christchurch on Friday. They will face Waikato in the final, who edged Auckland.In a see-saw battle that had 60 points scored in the first half alone, Canterbury managed to hang in and come out on top to achieve the home final next week. Ten tries were scored in total in a thoroughly entertaining game that was unfortunately watched by less than 7000 people at the ground.Colin Slade showed his quality yet again as he kicked 11 from 11 at goal, but it was Robbie Fruean who reiterated the feeling that he should be on the end of year All Blacks tour as he scored a try and set up two others. The 22 year old former Wellington player caused havoc all night long, prompting coach Rob Penney to state hes ready for Test rugby.“If they could find room for him, he’s ready to go,” Penney said. “He’s got some areas of his game that he’s developing but look at the form he’s in. There’s been worse players wearing the All Black jersey than him. He’d be a fantastic addition to their group.”He may still get the call up if they decide to replace injured wing Sitiveni Sivivatu. Fruean played wing for Wellington last season, so is no stranger to the position. He said Friday was one of his best games, but he remained humble, saying he could play better.“We wanted to create the opportunity out wide, but we had to make sure we set it up inside first. The guys running the decoy behind me created the opportunity for me, massively. Tu Umaga-Marshall ran a nice decoy line and drew the 12 out wide and left the 10 by himself,” he said about the try he scored.Penney said theyre hoping for a better turnout for the final after the disappointing number of fans there, but he believes the economy, rather than disinterest, is the reason for it. Sky has all the games on television and a large percentage of the population have access to Sky,” he said.“It’s Cup and Show Week next week and people are still recovering from the earthquake. They just don’t have the dollars to throw around since the recession.“The guys love playing in front of big crowds. When we played Wellington on the afternoon of the quake game, it just added so much. It was a great game and people really enjoyed it.“These guys are playing a really exciting brand; there’s a bit of edge-of-your-seat stuff at times and Waikato have got firepower right across the park. I expect it will be a cracker, he added.

Leading journalist released but banned from working

first_img RSF_en Help by sharing this information —–4 December 2010 – Emadoldin Baghi threatened with imprisonmentReporters Without Borders is extremely concerned about the plight of journalist Emadoldin Baghi, and emblematic figure in the defence of human rights in Iran, who on 27 November 2010 received a summons ordering him to present himself at Evin jail by 5 December.We are extremely worried about the summons which will probably lead to his arrest. Baghi is currently under medical treatment and his state of health is fragile. We call on European states which have opened negotiations with Iran on nuclear issues to pay careful attention to the case of this passionate defender of freedom of expression. Baghi was arrested on 28 December 2009, the day after opposition demonstrations on 27 December 2009, in a roundup orchestrated by the Ministry of Intelligence and the Revolutionary Guards. He was sentenced in July 2010, by the 15th chamber of the revolutionary court to one year in prison and to a five year ban on working as a journalist. He was also sentenced by the 26th chamber of the revolutionary court to six years in prison for having appeared on the Persian service of the BBC along with dissident religious leader Hossein Ali Montazeri, who died in December.Emadoldin Baghi, 48, has been summonsed, sentenced and imprisoned more than 80 times over the past ten years. The president of the Association for the defence of prisoners’rights, was awarded The Human Rights Prize of the French Republic in 2005, for his work in support of the abolition of the death penalty in Iran. He also received the Martin Ennals prize for his commitment to human rights. News Organisation Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 News News Reporters Without Borders hails leading human rights activist and journalist Emadoldin Baghi’s release on 21 June but deplores the fact that he is banned from any kind of political or journalistic activity for the next four years. He was originally given a six-year prison sentence but it was reduced to one year last July. He had been held since 5 December 2010, when he complied with a summons to present himself to Tehran’s Evin prison (http://en.rsf.org/iran-emadoldin-baghi-07-12-2010,38972.html).Baghi began a hunger strike on 18 June together with other inmates in Evin prison in protest against human rights violations in Iran. The protest was prompted by journalist Hoda Saber’s death in detention on 11 June (http://en.rsf.org/iran-iranian-authorities-responsible-15-06-2011,40455….) and activist Haleh Salabi’s death in a scuffle at her journalist father’s funeral 10 days before that (http://en.rsf.org/iran-activist-dies-in-fight-with-01-06-2011,40392.html). Aged 48, Baghi has been summoned, convicted or jailed at least 80 times in the course of his career as a journalist.The head of the Association for the Defence of Prisoners’ Rights, Baghi was awarded the French Republic’s Human Rights Prize in 2005 for his campaign to abolish the death penalty in Iran. He has also received the Martin Ennals Award for Human Rights Defenders.

Before turning himself in at Evin prison he said in an interview: In fact neither I nor my lawyers know whether the sentences have been upheld, by what court and in front of which judge! All that happened is that I received a phone call telling me to give myself up at the prison! … All this bears no relation to law and justice”. According to information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, several other journalists are in exactly the same situation as Emadoldin Baghi: under order to present themselves at the prison certain of being arrested. With 27 journalists, nine netizens and one media contributor already in jail, Iran is now the world’s third largest prison for journalists. last_img read more

University of Limerick researcher awarded €1m research funding that could help…

first_imgWhatsApp Michael Zaworotko, Bernal Chair of Crystal Engineering & Science Foundation of Ireland Research Professor at the University of Limerick speaking at the first of the Bernal Institute’s Distinguished Lecture Series at University of Limerick. Pic Sean Curtin True Media.A RESEARCHER at the University of Limerick has been awarded almost €1m in ground-breaking research funding to study a new class of materials that could help to reduce the footprint of global energy production.Professor Michael Zaworotko, Bernal Chair of Crystal Engineering and Science Foundation of Ireland Research Professor at the Bernal Institute University of Limerick, has been awarded €967,441.20 through the Irish Research Council 2019 Advanced Laureate Awards Programme, announced this Thursday.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up UL was successful in receiving the significant award under the frontier research programme which was announced by Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD and John Halligan TD, Minister of State for Training, Skills, Innovation, Research and Development and has a total investment of €11.8m.The investment will fund 12 researchers who are at an advanced stage in their careers and will be supported to conduct ground-breaking, world-class research across a wide range of disciplines.Professor Zaworotko’s research is aimed at solving global challenges related to commodity purification by significantly reducing the energy footprint, currently 20-30% of global energy production, needed to produce the most important industrial commodities.“Water, natural gas and ethylene are the primary targets for study. The Laureate Award will study a new class of materials that we call SALMAs – Switching Adsorbent Layered Materials,” he explained.“SALMAs are two dimensional structures that switch between ‘closed’ and ‘open’ phases; this gives them special properties. The idea is that SALMAs will have higher performance than existing sorbents and desiccants because they operate by a different mechanism (i.e. they are not rigid). A few were known before we starting looking at them but they have been understudied compared to their potential,” he added.Dr Mary Shire, Vice-President Research and Enterprise at UL, said: “Prof Zaworotko is one of the leaders in his field, this IRC Advanced Laureate Award is backing world-leading excellent research with impact and builds upon the strong reputation of the dynamic research ecosystem at the Bernal Institute in UL. The IRC Advanced Laureate Programme is an important mechanism to ensure we continue to grow a vibrant research community in Ireland.”Professor Zaworotko joined the University of Limerick in 2013, where he currently serves as Bernal Chair of Crystal Engineering, Science Foundation of Ireland Research Professor and co-director of the Synthesis and Solid-State Pharmaceutical Centre.He has published over 400 peer-reviewed papers, review articles and patents that have been cited over 42,000 times. In 2011, Thomson-Reuters listed him as the 20th highest impact chemist since 2000 and in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018 he was listed as a highly cited researcher in the field of Chemistry by Clarivate Analytics. In 2018 he was listed as a highly cited researcher in a second field, Pharmacology and Toxicology.The other research areas being funded under the 2019 Advanced Laureate Awards Programme range from new approaches in breast cancer treatment to the development of 3-D printed batteries and digitally mapping the full range of cultural activity across languages and ethnic groups in early modern Ireland.  Each awardee will receive a maximum of €1 million in funding over a period of four years.Education minister Joe McHugh said: “The Irish Research Council Advanced Laureate Programme was specifically designed to address gaps in the Irish research and innovation landscape in the area of frontier basic research, as identified in Innovation 2020, Ireland’s five-year strategy for science and technology, research and development. Minister Halligan and I are delighted to launch this round of awards and to congratulate each of the awardees.“Funding frontier research is vital in order for us to compete with our counterparts on the global stage, and to promote Ireland as an attractive location for world-class talent, both homegrown and international, in order to bring new knowledge, skills and innovations to our research institutions,” he added.Peter Brown, Director of the Irish Research Council, said: “The 12 researchers who will receive funding under the Advanced Laureate Awards Programme are all exceptional in their fields and have been selected following a rigorous and independent international peer-review process.“A total of 140 applications were received under this funding call. In addition to the 12 funded awards, a further 48 proposals were deemed to be excellent and fundable by the international panels of experts. This illustrates the high quality of researchers and the calibre of proposals being generated in frontier research in Ireland. The Council is committed to establishing regular calls under the Laureate awards to ensure that leading-edge, world-class research does not go unfunded.”The Irish Research Council opened the first call under the Laureate Awards Programme in 2017, resulting in 36 awards with an associated investment of €18 million.

The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice R. Hemalatha specifically observed, “Temple lands often fall into disuse and are encroached upon and waterbodies within temple lands become virtual public properties without any protection. It is imperative that appropriate measures are taken in such regard all over the State.” The matter before the Court The Court was hearing a plea seeking directions to State Government, among others, to constitute Committees to inspect the records maintained by Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department Officials all over the State as well as the records maintained by Arulmigu Subramaniaswamy Thirukoil Temple and other temples all over the State. The Plea further sought directions to secure and safeguard the interest of the temples all over the State and to direct Commissioner, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department to initiate appropriate departmental action as against the erring officials who are held responsible for the missing of temple records and properties. Court’s observations The Court took into account the response of the respondent authorities who submitted before the Court that following petitioner’s representation, the Principal Secretary in the department had issued substantive directions. Noting thus, the Court said, “For the moment, no immediate action is called for, if only to allow the steps suggested by the Principal Secretary to be implemented. It must be emphasized, however, that every effort should be made by the relevant department to protect temple properties all over the State, to mobilize the funds for the purpose of the maintenance, upkeep and even restoration of temples.” Further, the Court remarked that in view of the Principal Secretary’s directions and suggestions, no immediate action is called for. However, the Court granted the liberty to the petitioner to approach the Court after the passage of reasonable time, if the measures have not resulted in any improvement at the ground level. Significantly, the Court directed that in the event the petitioner seeks a general direction pertaining to the temples all over the State, the matter should be moved before the principal seat. The Court made this observation as it noted that while Public Interest Litigations pertaining to the districts covered by the Madurai Bench of the High Court of Madras could be instituted before the Madurai Bench of the HC, but, when pan–State matters are the subject-matter of any litigation, including the public interest litigation, they should be carried to the principal seat of the Court With this, the petition was disposed of.
