Radike Samo’s big hit on Bryan Habana in RWC Quarter Final

first_imgWednesday Oct 12, 2011 Radike Samo’s big hit on Bryan Habana in RWC Quarter Final Sunday’s epic quarter final between the Springboks and the Wallabies won’t be forgotten in a hurry, as there was plenty to talk about. The performances of Bryce Lawrence and David Pocock are two such things. There was also the Boks’ inability to take their opportunities, and then of course the massive defence from the Australians. One of the biggest hits of the game, and the weekend, came from veteran Radike Samo. As the tournament said farewell to legendary 38 year olds Simon Shaw and Mario Ledesma, Samo has continued to keep the old boys club going, and now finds himself in a Rugby World Cup semi final. Now 35, Samo has played all over the place, both position-wise, and globally. His career has been fascinating to follow and he’s now reaching the cult hero status he first enjoyed at the Brumbies about seven years back. Against Russia he played on the wing, and last month against the All Blacks he scored a fantastic try from about sixty meters out.This past weekend he played a fairly significant role too, as it was he who was taken down in the lineout, leading to the penalty against the Springboks that James O’Connor coolly slotted for the 11-9 lead.His tackle on Bryan Habana earlier in the match also typified the defensive effort of the Wallabies, so many of you mentioned that you’d like to see it again. It was deemed legal, but another day he may have been in a bit of trouble for it, as Habana basically tasted shoulder-pie.The impact was massive whichever way you see it. This coming weekend against the All Blacks he’ll be a key man for the Wallabies, off the back of the scrum, in the loose, and of course, on defence.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Three regulators to hold conference on rules affecting fundraisers

first_img Howard Lake | 17 February 2017 | News The Information Commissioner’s Office, the Charity Commission and the Fundraising Regulator are hosting a conference next week designed to “inform, educate and provide clarity to the sector”.The Fundraising and Regulatory Compliance Conference will take place on 21 February at Manchester Town Hall. Around 300 trustees, fundraisers and decision-makers will hear the three regulators set out the regulatory requirements and expectations for fundraising bodies and their boards under current and forthcoming data protection legislation.The speakers will include:UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth DenhamPaula Sussex, Chief Executive of the Charity CommissionGerald Oppenheim, Head of Policy at the Fundraising RegulatorThe conference follows the issuing of fines against some charities for breaching data protection legislation, debate in the sector about whether opt-in was the right way forward, and confusion over various implications of existing and forthcoming legislation for activities such as prospect research using public information.These follow nearly two years of increased attention and criticism of some fundraising practices by some charities by some media organisations and politicians.The main presentations will be chaired by former BBC news presenter Sir Martyn Lewis, founder of Youthnet and former chair of NCVO.Guidance on consentThe Fundraising Regulator will be launching its guidance on consent at the conference.Head of Policy Gerald Oppenheim said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Researching massive growth in giving. “It is important that charities and fundraisers understand their responsibilities in relation to data protection and data consent, which should be based on consideration of the rights and the wishes of the individual. This is why we are pleased to announce the publication of new guidance for charities and fundraisers on the importance of proper consent.”The ICO reports that Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham will tell the conference delegates:“The most successful organisations think of data protection as something more than mere compliance.“Everyone must stop focusing on the paperwork of privacy and move towards commitment to the people whose data they have – commitment to managing personal data legally, sensitively and ethically.”The ICO has recently fined the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the British Heart Foundation. It has informed another 11 charities of its intent to fine them for breaching the Data Protection Act.Ahead of the conference, Paula Sussex, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission said:“Charities are subject to the same legal requirements as all other organisations and we expect them to properly safeguard personal information according to the law. Trustees should have systems in place so that there is the right level of knowledge and awareness about the rules and expectations, and that they are adhered to. This conference is designed to help charities understand and meet these obligations.”The Fundraising and Regulatory Compliance Conference will be live streamed and recorded.If you are unable to attend the event, you can watch it livestreamed on the ICO‘s website.

And it doesn’t make further use of that personal information for any purpose fair.” Beney and colleagues will be at the Manchester event.Nicola Williams, Research Director at the Factary, has also highlighted five questions that fundraisers should ask of the ICO at the conference:5 Questions to Ask the ICOThe Factary plans to tweet key issues arising throughout the conference.

Fundraising Regulator to publish list of levy paying and non-paying charities

first_imgLord Grade of Yarmouth, Chair of the Board, reiterated the Regulator’s call for the levy to be paid. He said: “The public generously supports charities, so their commitment to good fundraising practice is of vital importance. For charities spending more than £100,000 a year on fundraising, paying the levy is a very clear sign of their commitment to ensuring the maintenance of excellent fundraising standards and professionalism.“I am pleased that so many charities have paid the levy and want to commit to carrying out their fundraising in an exemplary way. The system of voluntary regulation proposed in the Cross-Party Review can only work effectively if those being regulated are prepared to support the Regulator.” She too called on member charities to support the Fundraising Regulator by paying the levy if they fall within its scope or getting in touch with them if they have not yet done so. WATCH: Sir Stuart Etherington at the launch of the Fundraising Preference Service[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIGlnP44RSk[/youtube] At the end of the August the Fundraising Regulator will publish a full list of charities which fall within the scope of its levy. The list will distinguish charities which have paid and those which have not paid the voluntary levy.The Regulator first published a list of those organisations which had registered with it on 10 July and has updated it since. The levy is made on charities which spend more than £100,000 per annum on fundraising. Some charities that spend below that amount have still registered with the Regulator, and these are included on the list.Charities that pay the levy are automatically registered with the Fundraising Regulator and smaller charities are able to register on payment of “a modest fee”, in each case committing to the Fundraising Promise and displaying the Regulator’s badge.The expanded list, to be published at the end of the first year of the levy, will be the first that highlights those charities that have not paid or not responded to the Regulator’s request.SEE ALSO: The Fundraising Regulator one year onThe full list has been published “in the light of calls for full publication”. The Regulator’s Board has concluded that “it would be in the interests of transparency and fairness, particularly to those who have paid, to disclose the complete list of those charities asked to contribute to the costs of regulating fundraising through the levy”.Some sector leaders continue to point out that the levy is voluntary: Advertisement  110 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Name and shame?It did not specify who had made these calls for publication, or indeed how many there had been. Sir Stuart Etherington called for such a “name and shame” approach on the first anniversary of the Fundraising Regulator on 6 July, noting that this approach was not then policy for the Regulator.A journalist from the Daily Mail asked at the anniversary event, at which the Fundraising Preference Service’s launch was announced, also asked if a list of non-paying charities would be published. Lord Grade, Chair of the Regulator, suggested that, with the initial list published, it wouldn’t be hard to search for well-known charity names to see if they were on the list.From the end of August, that journalistic research will no longer be necessary.The list will also be shared with the Charity Commission, although it was not explained what the Commission might do with the information.Who has paid the fundraising levy?The Regulator states that 1,768 charities qualify, based on their fundraising expenditure, for the levy. At 26 July 2017:1,344 of these had paid or committed to pay (including “all but a handful of the largest charities”)244 are in negotiation with the Regulator about payment35 have declined to pay165 have not responded, including to a reminder letter sent by the Chair of the Board or the Chief ExecutiveThe Fundraising Regulator covers England, Northern Ireland and Wales, with a co-regulatory system in Scotland.Reminders to payIn addition to the reminder letter the Regulator has asked NCVO (whose CEO Sir Stuart Etherington chaired the 2015 Cross-party Review of Fundraising which led to the creation of the Fundraising Regulator and Fundraising Preference Service) and the Institute of Fundraising to contact their members to encourage them to pay the levy.Peter Lewis, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, did so, saying: “Fundraisers absolutely want the Fundraising Regulator to succeed. I would encourage all fundraising charities to sign up to support the Regulator and pay the levy as appropriate. We need an effective and properly resourced Regulator to help ensure high levels of trust in our work and to make sure that when things go wrong quick action is taken to deal with it.”The Institute’s new Chair Amanda Bringans met for the first time with Lord Grade to discuss self-regulation and other matters: Fundraising Regulator to publish list of levy paying and non-paying charitiescenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Howard Lake | 29 July 2017 | News Tagged with: Fundraising Regulator Law / policy regulation  109 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The first-year outside hitter was the only Frog to reach the double-digit kill mark in the match.Though the Longhorns only put up 36 kills, they did this while committing just 10 errors, hitting .329 as a team.Most of Adams’ work was done in the first set.

Free prostate cancer screenings Saturday

first_imgLatest Stories Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “Pike County rates high in the number of participants in the free screenings offered by Urology Centers of Alabama,” Bivins said. “The more we educate the public about the importance of prostate cancer screenings, the greater the number of screenings that will be done and the greater the number of lives that will be saved.”Bivins will be at the Pike County Health Department Saturday for the free prostate cancer screenings conducted by the Urology Centers of Alabama in Birmingham.The screening is a simple procedure and takes about 10 minutes, which could be live-saving minutes. All men ages 40 and over should have annual prostate screenings. Bivins said.All that is needed to conduct the screening is a name and reliable address to send the results.If an abnormality is found, Urology Centers of Alabama in Birmingham will follow-up with a phone call and strongly recommend seeing a physician of choice, if that has not already been done.In cases where there is no insurance, and regardless of ability to pay, Urology Centers of Alabama will make arrangements for those with abnormalities. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration For that reason, Urology Centers of Alabama offers the opportunity for free prostate cancer screenings in rural Alabama and to underserved populations.“In Alabama we typically see a prevalence of prostate cancer in the Black Belt areas and in at-risk, small rural areas,” Bivins said. “We want to reach out to those areas with free screenings because early diagnosis is the key. If we can catch the cancer at the early stage, lives can be saved.”Since Urology Centers of Alabama’s first time to screen in Pike County in 2012, 286 men have been screened with 13 percent found to have an abnormality.Bivins said participation has been very good in Pike County and he expects a large number of men to participate in the free prostate screening from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at the Pike County Health Department. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By Jaine Treadwell By The Penny Hoarder The death of his grandfather had a big impact on Bivins’ life and he is committed to helping save lives, “one screen at a time.”Although, prostate cancer screenings can save lives, prostate cancer continues to be the most prevalent cancer in men after skin cancer and is the second leading cause of death. The death rate from prostate cancer in Alabama is the third highest in the nation. Alabama is now number one in the United States for prostate cancer death among African Americans.“Even when you accumulate this, prostate cancer screenings saves a lot of lives,” Bivins said.

House And Senate Hire Lawyer To Intervene In Curtis Hill Lawsuit

first_imgHouse And Senate Hire Lawyer To Intervene In Curtis Hill LawsuitJuly 23, 2019 By Brandon BargerTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Leaders of the Indiana House and Senate have asked a federal court to allow them to intervene in a lawsuit filed by four women who say that Attorney General Curtis Hill groped them at a party at the end of the 2018 legislative session.House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, and Senate President Pro Tempore Rodric Bray, R-Martinsville, said late Monday that they had hired Susan M. Zoeller of Jackson Lewis P.C. to represent them in the case. Zoeller, who previously helped lawmakers craft new sexual harassment policies, has been paid $54,474 for her services so far, according to the Legislative Services Agency.Four women—Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon, D-Munster; Niki DaSilva, a legislative assistant for Indiana Senate Republicans; Samantha Lozano, a legislative assistant for Indiana House Democrats; and Gabrielle McLemore, communications director for Indiana Senate Democrats— sued Hill and the state of Indiana in U.S District Court for sexual harassment, gender discrimination, retaliation, battery, invasion of privacy and defamation related to the March 2018 incident.Hill is being sued both personally and in his role as attorney general. Indiana is being sued because, the women say, lawmakers and policy-making officials failed to act when concerns about workplace discrimination and retaliation were reported.But neither the House nor the Senate was sued separately, which is why the lawmakers are asking the court to allow them to intervene in the case.Attorneys for the women at Katz, Korin, and Cunningham declined to comment on why the General Assembly wasn’t included in the lawsuit.In motions to intervene on behalf of each legislative chamber, Zoeller wrote that by not naming the House or the Senate, the four women are requiring them to change policies without giving either of them an opportunity to defend current policies.In addition to the allegations against Hill, the lawsuit says that the state’s policies to protect employees against sexual harassment have been weak or non-existent. In January, the General Assembly passed its first sexual harassment policy, but the lawsuit claims the policy does not go far enough to protect employees.Zoeller wrote that the House and Senate have a long-term interest in defending its policies and investigative actions from attack.In separate responses on behalf of the House and Senate, Zoeller responded line by line to every point made in the women’s lawsuit, including whether the sine die party held at the end of the session was an officially sanctioned event.“Answering further, the Indiana House denies there is an official, sanctioned sine die Celebration,” she wrote. Zoeller had a similar statement in the Senate response.In addition to seeking damages against Hill and the state, the women in their lawsuit are asking the court to order the state to improve policies and procedures to for preventing and reporting sexual harassment and retaliation.Hill has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, saying that the charges against him do not rise to the level of a civil rights violation.Hill faces a hearing in October before retired Supreme Court Justice Myra Selby on charges filed against him by the Indiana Supreme Court disciplinary commission. The 10-page complaint accuses him of committing both felony-level and misdemeanor battery while acting “with the selfish motive to arouse his sexual desires.”Hill could face the loss of his law license, which in turn could cost him his elective office because Indiana law requires the attorney general to be licensed to practice law.FOOTNOTE: Brandon Barger is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, anews website powered by Franklin College journalists.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
