The purchasing managers’ index survey came on the heels of data last week indicating the manufacturing sector was also back in recession.“It’s important to anchoring fiscal expectations that the government comes up with a credible plan to bring the deficit below three per cent of GDP by 2014, and in that context additional measures are to be expected,” said Dietmar Hornung, Moody’s lead sovereign analyst for Ireland.•Meanwhile, Allied Irish Banks (AIB) said yesterday it will sell a 22 per cent stake, currently valued at around $2.2bn, in New York regional lender M&T Bank Corp in a public offering.The Irish government will take a majority stake in AIB next month to help it fill a capital hole of €10.4bn caused by the bank’s fatal courtship of property developers during the go-go years of the “Celtic Tiger” economy. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more

Aaron Cruden on Pat McCabe’s injury

first_img TAGS: Highlight Test rugby: blink and you can miss a major moment. Sometimes, in the direst of circumstances you can miss a career.On Saturday, as the Wallabies were choking on the spoon their medicine had been served with – at 51-20 in Eden Park against the All Blacks, that dose of medicine doesn’t much nippier ­– one of their players was helped off. Pat McCabe, who had twice suffered a fractured neck before, damaged it again. This third fracture would be the one that ended his career. At the age of 26.For All Blacks stand-off Aaron Cruden, who orchestrated the Wallabies’ rugby downfall, it came as a shock.“I wasn’t aware of Pat’s injury during the game,” Cruden tells Rugby World, “but I saw him afterwards. I headed into the physio’s area to get my pectoral (sic) checked out, and Pat was there with a neck brace on. I asked him how he was and he said he was ‘hoping to be just fine.’ Then, it turns out he cannot play.“It doesn’t get much more physical that a (Bledisloe) Test. It’s like that in the heat of the moment, but you never wish injuries like that on any opponent. For Pat it was just one of those things, and he won’t want it to be, even if he lost. But he can walk away, which is the important thing.”In the middle of it all: Cruden was at the centre of the All Blacks’ good playFor Cruden, talking on behalf of AIG who have launched a safety campaign to educate clubs and  grass-roots level players, it is a particularly poignant issue. Things have come a long way in a short space of time with on-field safety, he says, but international players are beholden to spread a message of safety. The fly-half tells of passing on “good habits”, in terms of learning proper technique and using the right equipment. He also is saddened by those trying to tear down the game, rather than focusing on improving standards.In the May edition of Rugby World, the Rugby Rant was about professor Allyson Pollock, from Queen Mary University of London, calling for a ban of the sport. Despite McCabe’s extreme misfortune, Cruden isn’t convinced.“It can be difficult to hear people like that on the sport that I love,” the Waikato Chief says, “but you cannot please everyone. The important thing is to educate parents and young players and to take safety forward.”Of course, before McCabe left the game, there was plenty of inspiration on display for those fond of a comeback tale. The Wallaby winger had recovered from two neck fractures, his team-mate Nathan Charles is playing Test union despite living with Cystic Fibrosis and Cruden himself has famously recovered since suffering from testicular cancer at the age of 19. Calling it quits: Wallaby Pat McCabe has called time on his career after a third fractured neck LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Cruden agrees that there was plenty to admire there. “I think it is special to see these guys play. Life throws up a lot of challenges and you are defined by how you respond. That’s especially true of rugby. It’s a sport we all truly love and you have to make the most of it while it lasts. You’ve got to do what you can when you get that chance.”In rugby terms Cruden is particularly pleased with how his game has improved since he last spoke to Rugby World, just before the All Black’s first summer Test against England. Then, he felt he had a lot to prove to himself after sloppy Super Rugby performances and breaking his thumb. By the time he was masterminding a heavy Bledisloe win, he had played into form.Impressive: He may be unattached, but Nicolas Sanchez has shoneHe is also pleased with how he and close friend Aaron Smith are growing as a half-back pairing. After getting a ‘boot up the backside’ before the second Rugby Championship Test, they upped their work-rate, went on the attack and shone. Keeping Australia‘s playmaker Kurtley Beale quite by shutting him down definitely pleased him – though obviously he did so with the help of a voracious back-row unit.Certainly Beale has extreme talent and you cannot keep him too quiet for too long, as evidenced when the Waratah popped up to flick a “little, sneaky inside ball to Izzy Folau to score.” However, Cruden passed that Test. Now his sights are on Argentina’s No 10.“From the few games I’ve seen from Nicolas Sanchez, he has been fantastic. He brings natural flair, in unpredictable, adds balance to their team and, like me, he’s not afraid to attack the line even if he’s not the biggest guy.“It does seem bizarre that he is not attached to any team, considering he is Argentina’s leading No 10. You’d think they would want him to find his timing before a World Cup campaign. But then again, look at his last two results – he’s clearly doing something right!” Aaron Cruden was speaking at the launch of the AIG Rugby Safety Awards, a global campaign to tackle safety in rugby.

The Great Migration: The Scotsman in Romania

first_imgBack in Scotland: Doneghan helps make a tackle for the Gael Force vs Leinster in the B&I Cup“I’d love to end on a high, either the Challenge Cup or international rugby. There are so many guys who have gone down the road and thought: ‘I can take the chance and miss out on a few years of life, so to speak, or I don’t risk it and do something else.’ I’ve chosen to take the risk. I’m a single guy, I still love rugby, so why not? If I don’t like it, c’est la vie, I can come back to the UK. That’s one thing. People in Britain and France sometimes don’t realise how lucky they are in terms of handouts, the NHS, minimum wage… in Romania doctors will be earning €300 a month. They’ve not got motorways and there are issues with horses and carts, stray dogs. You can get maybe five people in a one-bedroom apartment. So I’m quite lucky (to earn a good wage to play rugby). If anything does go wrong, I’ve got a nation to go back to that will help me. Well, I hope so anyway!”There are little things to deal with aside from playing. The lack of good vegetarian food or Irn Bru is a bit of a concern, and travelling from the north of Romania to face a rival can take up to 12 hours on a sleeper bus. But those minor issues won’t stop him from hustling for his club, in the hope he can do just the same for the Romanian national team one day. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The man to impress: Lynn Howells (C) at RWC 2015“I’m the only Scotsman in the league. There’s Jack Cobden at CSM Bucharest. He’s played for the national team. He’s English. We’ve got four Fijians, four Tongans, two South Africans, myself and two Georgians. There’s maybe five or six guys who may say they’re Moldovan, but may just be from the Moldovan region of the country, so they’re Romanian but will speak a different dialect. It’s very multicultural here. I remember one of our games, our entire back-line were speaking English and we were facing Timisoara ,whose entire back-line were speaking English. I felt like I was back in the Championship. In France there wasn’t a lot of that.”There is more opportunity to pack your boots and travel the world than ever before. The motivations of why players do so is something we can seek to understand. For Doneghan it is the desire not to give up on his dream – he never went to university, he just wanted to play rugby and he is not prepared to head back to the UK just yet. He is enjoying himself too, playing among athletes from different cultures. He is learning the language, a little bit at a time. There are so many positives for the back.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREBut what went through his head when he first rocked up to Romania? “I thought, ‘If I don’t like it I can just leave.’ What’s really attractive for Romanian rugby, particularly the best four teams, is that we can get into the Challenge Cup. I was really pleasantly surprised with how good the rugby is here. It’s maybe lacking in things like cryochambers and top analysis, but our changing rooms are the best I’ve ever had; we’ve got a sauna, we’ve got a big bath for hot and one for ice, the showers are great… The pitches are usually pretty good. It seems most guys sign for at least two years too. Meeting the press: Michael Doneghan talks to local press in Baia Mare Credit: Alin Boțioc center_img Michael Doneghan came through the Scottish Academy system, spending time with Glasgow and the sevens before playing in the English Championship with London Scottish. And after a brief stint with AS Macon in Fédérale 1, he is now into his second season with Baia Mare in Romania’s professional league.At the ground: DoneghanAs the centre-cum-winger explains, he’s not far off realising a unique dream: “I’ll openly say it to you, come my three years in Romania, that’ll enable me to push for the national team with them. I’d love to make the World Cup squad. They’re playing in the European Nations Cup, they’re winning that. They’re playing Six Nations B, they’ve won that. It’s really competitive now. If Scotland gave me the call I don’t know what I’d say, but it’s not likely. I’d love to be in that group with Romania, if they qualify.”He has trained with a Romania B squad masquerading as a ‘President’s Select’, under the watchful eyes of the Romanian national coaches, Lynn Howells, Rob Moffat and Massimo Cuttitta, the very group who coached Edinburgh back in the 2006-07 season. Doneghan hopes he can impress over the rest of this season, with Baia Mare second in the SuperLiga table.SEE OUR INVESTIGATION IN THE NEW ISSUERomania’s professional league is somewhat of a mystery to those of us rooted in the West. There are seven professional teams, with the top four sides, Baia Mare, Timisoara Saracens, Steaua Bucharest and CSM Bucharest, competing strongly. But there are only seven for a reason. Money is king in Romania. With teams privately owned, the size of the bank balance is key to success and survival. It is very easy to go from boom to bust, as demonstrated by Farul Constanta, who suffered a recent financial collapse and fell out of the league.Some also see Romania as a haven for players from foreign climes who are not considered must-haves in other pro leagues around the world. More talent coming into the league for a few years creates the opportunity to play under a different flag, as Doneghan hopes to do, and this has drawn criticism from some, at least it did when the news reached the greater rugby public that Romania had selected seven Pacific-born players in their November squad.“I think every single team has at least two foreign guys, probably more than that,” Doneghan says on the outside influence coming into the league. “The majority are Tongan. There’s a rule that you can have eight foreign guys in the squad. We’ve got maybe 12 or 13, however two of them have played for Romania, so don’t count any more. Forget players coming in to established rugby powerhouses, Alan Dymock talks with one Scot who hopes to play for Romania in Rugby World Cup 2019.

Black anti-imperialist defended

first_imgAjamu BarakaThe irony of the first full-blown demonstration against a speaker at the Left Forum in New York City being aimed at a Black anti-imperialist calls into question the motivations of supposedly anti-genocide protesters.An article being circulated throughout the conference weekend on June 1-3, as well as a walkout protest during the closing plenary of the annual event, decried Black Alliance for Peace national organizer Ajamu Baraka’s support for the Syrian state.Syria has been devastated by a seven-year, U.S.-led intervention that has armed so-called rebels and created millions of refugees. An international attempt to investigate Syria for allegedly possessing chemical weapons, used to allegedly commit genocide, was thwarted by an April 13 attack by a U.S.-led coalition that included France and the United Kingdom.Protesters at the Left Forum called Baraka an “Assadist” and a Trump supporter, as well as a “genocide denialist.”“This was not an attack against me personally, but against all of us who take an uncompromising stance on U.S. and European imperialism,” Baraka said. “The Black Alliance for Peace will continue to call out the petty-bourgeois moralism that aligns itself with the humanitarian fiction of the ‘responsibility to protect’ — the 21st century version of the ‘white man’s burden.’”The United National Antiwar Coalition issued the following “Defense of Anti-Imperialism” on June 6:“Two organizations used Ajamu Baraka’s presence at the recent Left Forum in order to attack anti-imperialism itself. They falsely accuse him of being a defender of genocide and a Donald Trump supporter as a ruse to hide their support of imperialism as carried out not just in Syria but around the world.“Ajamu Baraka’s history of activism and his role as National Organizer and National Spokesperson for the Black Alliance for Peace demonstrate a commitment to democracy, justice, and the rights of all people to self-determination.“United National Antiwar Coalition is a partner with BAP on initiatives such as the Coalition Against U.S. Foreign Military Bases. BAP is also represented on the UNAC Coordinating Committee. The two groups work together because we share the same determination to end U.S. state-sponsored violence wherever it is carried out. In just one year since its founding, the Black Alliance for Peace has made great strides in reviving the black radical tradition of opposing ‘the greatest purveyor of violence in the world.’“While the lies and vitriol directed at Ajamu Baraka were not strictly personal, they were in essence attacks carried out against this black-led movement as well. BAP’s success in a short period of time makes it a target of faux leftists, whose goal is to legitimize U.S. foreign policy while cynically appearing to oppose it. The attempt to silence a leading black anti-war organization is therefore racist and makes their actions all the more insidious.“These organizations reveal themselves to be supporters of the U.S. hegemon, telling slanderous falsehoods in order to hide their true political stance. They have a history of disrupting anti-war actions and forums hosted by UNAC and others whenever an anti-imperialist position on Syria or other issues are being discussed.“UNAC stands with everyone who is clear about the necessity of ending the U.S. goal of reaching full-spectrum dominance in Syria and everywhere. As such, it is vital for us to stand with Black Alliance for Peace and against any effort to denounce its work and its leadership. We encourage other organizations to add their names to this statement or to issue their own statements of support and solidarity.”Varughese is a communications adviser for Black ­Alliance for Peace.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The authorities in Manila must restart enquiries as a matter of urgency.”A freelance journalist who presented the programme Pag-usapan Natin (Let’s talk about that) on local radio station DZJO, Estriber was kidnapped by four gunmen. According to a representative of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP), the kidnapping took place a few yards from a police station, but the police never questioned the witnesses.Estriber has five dependants – his wife and four children – who have had no source of income since his disappearance.A well-known critic of deforestation in Aurora province, he often used his radio programme to condemn the intensive logging being carried out by companies with the support of people within the local government, and he had participated in a campaign calling for the withdrawal of the nine licences issued to logging companies in the province.Estriber also worked for a local development NGO, Bataris, which a military officer speaking on a radio station in February described as the kind of organisation that should be combated.
