first_imgCardale Jones swings and misses at a softball.Twitter/@STN_Sports Every year, NCAA member schools have to self-report dozens of violations, the vast majority of which are quite inane. Ohio State’s student newspaper The Lantern reports that the school reported 29 minor violations, six of which came from the football program. The most interesting of them centers on quarterback Cardale Jones’ attendance as a celebrity softball game hosted by Cleveland Browns star Joe Haden.Cardale Jones and Prime Time at Joe Haden’s Celebrity softball game— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) June 6, 2015In one case, an OSU football player was told that he was neither permitted to participate in nor attend the Joe Haden Celebrity Charity Softball game in Cleveland on June 6. However, on the morning of the event he called his position coach and was told he could attend the event but not participate.Because the school had not provided written approval to attend, a violation had occurred. An OSU spokesman could not confirm the identity of the player, but redshirt junior quarterback Cardale Jones was documented to have attended the game.In response to the violation, a letter of education was provided to all football coaches and staff emphasizing the rules regarding promotional activities, as well as reviewed with football student-athletes.Braxton Miller’s Instagram photo promoting AdvoCare from the spring was also included in the report. It should be noted that there should not be an repercussions for minor offenses like these, but it is always interesting to look at the things that are deemed violations by the NCAA. Many of them are pretty ridiculous.[The Lantern via Eleven Warriors]last_img read more

first_imgThe Sale Sharks’ Danny Cipriani is the star of a brand-new ad campaign for PETA in which he shows off his tattoos – and his chiselled physique – next to the words “Ink, Not Mink”.The ad goes on to say, “Fur looks good only on its original owner. Be comfortable in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs”. The new ad, available here, was shot by top celebrity photographer Trevor Leighton.“The rugby pitch is known for being a tough environment, but it’s nothing compared to what some animals go through when being hunted for their fur”, Cipriani says. “I’m proud to be helping PETA raise awareness of how to help these animals – all you have to do is not wear them!”In the wild, animals caught in cruel steel-jaw traps can languish for days, slowly dying from hunger, thirst, disease, blood loss and predation. Some, especially mothers with babies, chew through their limbs in a desperate attempt to escape. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy cages before they are beaten, gassed or anally electrocuted. Sometimes, they are even skinned while still alive. More than 2 million cats and dogs are skinned in China every year – many while still conscious. Designers such as Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Vivienne Westwood have all publicly sworn off fur. With so many stylish alternatives available, there’s no excuse to harm a hair on an animal’s head.Cipriani – whose impressive 192 points last season helped the Sale Sharks reach the LV= Cup final – is in good company in speaking up for animals. While he is the first rugby player to star in a PETA ad, many top athletes – including strongman competitor Patrik Baboumian, England cricketer Jade Dernbach, squash champion James Willstrop, basketball star Metta World Peace, boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosley, marathon runner Fauja Singh, UFC fighters Jake Shields and Mac Danzig and ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll – have previously teamed up with PETA or its affiliates to encourage kindness towards animals.For more information or to view the ad, please visit read more

Although there is a great risk of trafficking, so far there has only been anecdotal evidence, UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) spokesperson Sarah Crowe told a news briefing in Geneva, giving the latest update on the situation.For the first time since the start of the crisis, the majority of those crossing from Greece into the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia at Gevgelija, nearly 60 per cent, have been children and women, she noted.Germany and Sweden have the most thorough data on the numbers of unaccompanied children who have requested asylum – 60,000 and 35,400 respectively. More and more children and women are at risk at sea and need support on land through enhanced protection, health and welfare systems, she said. Effective guardianship programs for children on the move are needed every step of the way and reports of children who are not fully accounted for in these systems are extremely worrying, she stressed. Effective guardianship programmes for children on the move are needed every step of the way.Unaccompanied children are mainly adolescents 15 to 17 years old, coming primarily from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, Ms. Crowe said. In some countries, they are temporarily delayed, get frustrated and tend to move on, as they do not want to be detained in centres. UNICEF has no concrete evidence regarding violence experienced by children and women, Ms. Crowe said. The reunification rate for children lost in transit has been 100 per cent so far and there are no children who are definitively lost. UNICEF is waiting for a green light from the Greek Government to operate fully in Greece, since it now is only present through its national committee, focusing on advocacy and awareness-raising. read more

Operation Stovewood has been looking into abuse in Rotherham The intimidation only stopped when he was remanded into custody in March this year.But while he was awaiting his trial, Khaliq contacted two NCA investigators telling one he knew where they lived and warning the other he was close to finding out his address.He also told them he hoped they died of cancer or AIDS. NCA senior investigating officer Phillip Marshall said: “Through his vindictive campaign of social media trolling Khaliq only compounded the suffering his victims had already gone through.“They showed extreme bravery in coming forward and continuing to give evidence despite this, and I once again pay tribute to them.“Our investigation has been victim focused throughout, and this conviction demonstrates that we will not tolerate attempts to intimidate victims or our officers who work with them.”Kate Hurst, of the CPS, said: “Engaging in acts of any kind which are intended to ‎intimidate victims and witnesses in a criminal trial is an offence which strikes at the heart of the criminal justice system.”The CPS will always treat any such activity with the utmost seriousness and in this case it has led to further charges and an additional sentence for Waseem Khaliq.” Investigators from the National Crime Agency contacted Facebook and had the account closed down, but Khaliq continued to post comments on other accounts. A paedophile, who was jailed for ten years for abusing young girls in Rotherham, has had another 45 months added to his sentence after admitting trolling one of his victims.Waseem Khaliq, 35, set up a fake Facebook account and used it in an attempt to intimidate the girl and undermine her evidence.He also made a threatening phone call from prison, telling officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) who were investigating him that he knew where they lived.Khaliq was convicted of child abduction and indecent assault at Sheffield Crown Court last month as part of the long running Operation Stovewood investigation into sexual abuse and exploitation in Rotherham.But after he was charged, Khaliq set up a fake Facebook account using the name, Andros Simpson, and used it to troll one of his victims.Claiming to be an investigative journalist, who was looking into what happened in Rotherham, he claimed the victim was lying and said she was only giving evidence because she had been offered cash and a new house.He also used the account to contact a number of associates of the victim in an attempt to intimidate her and prevent her from giving evidence.

first_imgTourisme médical : des avantages financiers mais des risques accrusFrance – Si l’Hexagone possède un système de santé parmi les plus performants au monde, certains de nos concitoyens sont pourtant tentés d’aller voir ailleurs. Leur motivation : les prix. Le problème : les maladies nosocomiales. La sécurité sociale et les mutuelles ne remboursent pas tous les soins. Parmi les actes les moins bien pris en charge se trouvent les soins dentaires, la chirurgie esthétique et les implants capillaires. Pour ceux qui souhaitent y avoir recours, la facture est parfois très salée.À lire aussiErysipèle : contagion, traitement, de quoi s’agit-il ?C’est ainsi que le tourisme médical a vu le jour. Les pays en développement ou les pays émergents proposent, avec des agences de voyage spécialisées, des séjours tout compris : hôtel avec piscine, visite d’un village pittoresque et hospitalisation. Leurs prix défient toute concurrence hexagonale, même avec le billet d’avion.Le tourisme médical peut sembler être la solution idéale pour s’offrir un nouveau nez ou des nouveaux cheveux à un tarif raisonnable, avec en prime la découverte d’un pays étranger. Malheureusement, le tableau n’est pas si rose. En effet, la presse décrit depuis quelques jours déjà le développement et la progression mondiale d’une famille de bactéries résistant aux antibiotiques. Apparues en Inde et au Pakistan, ces bactéries ont été contractées par des touristes sur le lieu de leur hospitalisation, avant d’être ramenées dans le pays d’origine des patients. Le tourisme médical pose donc aujourd’hui un véritable problème de santé publique, en favorisant le développement et l’exportation de nouvelles maladies nosocomiales.      Le 17 août 2010 à 10:49 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgAfter a lot of debates and deliberations, India finally handed young Rishabh Pant his World Cup debut in the match against England at Edgbaston. The left-hander was included in the India squad after Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of World Cup with a thumb injury. Dhawan suffered a hairline fracture during his match-winning 117 against Australia at The Oval on June 9.”He brings in a lot of fearlessness. There is a small boundary for him to play for. Once he gets to 20, then it’s a different ball game,” skipper Virat Kohli said at the toss. The young man had a great chance to stamp his authority over the game, but after a frenetic start, he was dismissed trying to up the ante and was caught brilliantly by Chris Woakes at the square leg boundary.Pant at number 4 can be a long-term option and the management should give him a longer rope at that position. However, vice-captain Rohit Sharma was quite casual in his assessment of the young man batting at that position. He said he was not surprised at all when Pant walked in to bat at the number 4 position.Pant had replaced Vijay Shankar in the squad Rohit SharmaICC Twitter”No, not really because you all guys wanted Rishabh Pant to play right?, right from India, you were like where’s Rishabh Pant, where’s Rishabh Pant, there he is at No.4,” Rohit Sharma responded in a hilarious manner when asked if he was surprised at the decision.Vice-captain @ImRo45 lightened up the post-match press conference when asked about Rishabh Pant ?? #TeamIndia #ENGvIND #CWC19— BCCI (@BCCI) June 30, 2019Rishabh Pant had replaced injured Vijay Shankar in India’s playing XI against England. Vijay Shankar, who was backed as India’s No.4 batsman, by chief selector MSK Prasad was ruled out of the match with a toe niggle as per captain Virat Kohli. India’s chase meandered along in the final few overs and Rohit said that the pitch had slowed down which made finding boundaries tough for MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav towards the back end of the innings.”When Mahi and Kedar were batting, they were trying to hit (boundaries) but were not able to because of the slowness of the pitch,” Rohit Sharma, who top-scored for India with 102, said after the team’s first loss in the tournament. MS DhoniICC TwitterHe also said that the English bowlers were very good and they utilised the conditions brilliantly towards the end. The 32-year-old opener said, “Towards the end, it got pretty slow. We got to give credit to the English team, they used the conditions very well.””They mixed up their variations quite nicely and kept us guessing all through the game,” he further added.last_img read more

The BNP also termed conviction of party chairperson Khaleda Zia a politically motivated action.Mirza Fakhrul, speaking at a discussion, protested at the remarks the prime minister made in parliament on Wednesday, criticising the BNP.”You (PM) should see your own face in the mirror and know what the people’s perception is about you… People know very well who’re plundering thousands of crores of taka from mega projects and different banks. They also know who’re not indulging in corruption,” UNB quoted the BNP leader as saying.”The prime minister on Wednesday made some objectionable remarks in parliament. She called a major party corrupt, but it had ruled the country five times since its inception and introduced multi-party democracy and restored the press freedom,” he said.Jatiya Ganotantrik Odhikar Mancha arranged the programme at the National Press Club, demanding the release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and its standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy.On Wednesday, prime minister Sheikh Hasina sharply criticised the BNP for dropping section 7 from its charter and making a convict its head.”Will the party which accepts corruption as a policy or supports it in its charter and accepts a corrupt leader work for the wellbeing of people?

first_imgMary, Queen of Scots also known as Mary Stuart, became known as one of the most controversial figures in British royal history. A daughter of King James V, she inherited the Scottish throne in 1542, while being only six days old. Therefore, a regency was set up to rule Scotland, while she spent her childhood in France. When she came back for the throne in 1561, the British Isles were deeply divided by Protestant Reformation. A Catholic herself, she struggled to keep Scotland loyal to the Pope, in the midst of religious turmoil that caught the British Isles. In such a delicate political situation, she found it necessary to surround herself with trustworthy courtiers, as conspiracies were in the air from the first day of her official reign.Mary Queen of ScotsOne such courtier, in particular, managed to rise quickly in the hierarchy, becoming the Queen’s personal secretary, and by some allegations, her lover. His name was David Rizzio, and he would meet a tragic end in 1566, as a victim of a conspiracy orchestrated against Queen Mary by none other than her husband, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley.Rizzio was an Italian musician who ended up in the Scottish court in 1561, as a member of a diplomatic mission on behalf of Savoy, then a duchy in today’s Switzerland that had strong ties with Piedmont, one of the most powerful of Italian realms at the time.Seventeenth-century portrait, traditionally said to be of David Rizzio, private secretary of Mary, Queen of ScotsAlthough the mission was over, he stayed at the invitation of Queen Mary, who found his musical skills and continental charm quite enchanting.After spending a few years as a court musician and a bass in the Queen’s choir, he would go on to replace Augustine Raulet, one of Mary’s most loyal subjects who acted as her confidential secretary and decipherer, and was the only person apart from the Queen to own the keys to the box containing her personal papers.David Rizzio and Mary Stuart by Amos Cassioli.It remains unclear whether the reason behind this decision was due to Raulet somehow betraying the Queen’s trust, or due to her own misjudgment. Anyhow, this shift wasn’t taken lightly, as Rizzio was soon accused of being a Papal spy, whose real role was to support Queen Mary in her attempt to subvert the Reformation in Scotland.Meanwhile, Lord Darnley and Mary Stuart got married. Darnley, described by historian John Guy, as “a narcissist and a natural conspirator”, and a person who “was cynically exploiting religion for his own political purposes”.Darnley and Mary, Queen of Scots (painting circa 1565, now at Hardwick Hall in DerbyshireDarnley was known for his debauchery and promiscuity with some stories even claiming he also had a love affair with the Italian musician. In fact, Rizzio was known to be his confidant before he switched sides and became one of the Queen’s most intimate advisors.In 1566 the Scottish ― less than a year after their wedding ― the royal couple became very estranged. Darnley’s opportunistic nature surfaced as he tried to push out Mary from all political affairs, assuming the role of King of Scots.Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley king consort of ScotlandThe two became bitter foes, and his suspicion towards Rizzio grew, as the young courtier became more and more close to the Queen. Add to the mixture that Mary Stuart was carrying a child at the time, and that many of the courtiers pointed their fingers at David Rizzio to be the father, although no evidence for such claims existed. Darnley was furious.Together with his father, Matthew Stuart, 4th Earl of Lennox, and a number of other influential figures of the court, he devised a plot which would end in using David Rizzio as a scapegoat for his own coup against Mary.Matthew Stewart, his wife Margaret, their son Charles and grandson James mourn their son HenryOn the night of 9th of March 1566, the conspirators decided to act. A group of 80 men barged into the Queen’s dining room, where she was having dinner with Rizzio and other confidants. Rudely interrupted, Mary Stuart quickly became aware of the gravity of the situation.One of the main conspirators, Lord Ruthven, initiated the previously orchestrated brawl while wearing battle armor. He accused Rizzio of having an affair with the Queen, emphasizing their assault as a matter of honor which needed to be settled.The Murder of Rizzio, 1787 by John OpieThe Queen objected to such accusations while being held tightly by Darnley, with a pistol pointed to her head. During that time, the conspirators stabbed Rizzio with their daggers, killing him. In the aftermath, David Rizzio, the personal secretary of Mary, Queen of Scots, had received 56 stab wounds.Afterward, when Darnley was confronted by Mary, he explained that the plot took place due to his belief that she was having an affair with Rizzio. Although Mary denounced such claims, the argument which followed led to the Queen being locked in her chamber, while the conspirators further desecrated Rizzio’s body.The murder of David Rizzio from the Duke of Buccleuch statue.

Apparently, Darnley cared little for the Protestant cause, upon which he acted against his wife, at first, and decided to switch sides.Related Video: 12 Ye Olde Insults we could use todayThe royal couple then found refuge at the home of the sister of the Earl of Bothwell. As soon as the managed to escape, Queen Mary raised an army of several thousand men and returned to Edinburgh.1567 drawing of Kirk o’ Field after the murder of Darnley, drawn for William Cecil shortly after the murder.At that point, the conspirators were forced to flee, providing Mary Stuart the opportunity to consolidate her power and establish a firm rule over Scotland.Read another story from us: The life of Mary Queen of Scots – Married 3 times, imprisoned and her untimely endHowever, this period of peace was short-lived, for her former ally, Earl of Bothwell allegedly organized the assassination of Darnley, and forced the Queen to marry him.
