All Blacks remain unbeaten with strong win over Boks in Soweto

first_imgSunday Oct 7, 2012 All Blacks remain unbeaten with strong win over Boks in Soweto New Zealand finished the inaugural Rugby Championship with six wins out of six games as they put on a strong second half performance to crush the Springboks 32-16 in Soweto on Saturday. The home side had led 16-12 at halftime. Soccer City (also know as the FNB Stadium or National Stadium) had over 80 000 fans on hand to witness Richie McCaw’s 100th Test match win, which he has achieved in 112 Tests.Bryan Habana continued his try-scoring form but it was the Springboks’ only try, as the visitors ended with four in total, scored by Sam Whitelock, Aaron Smith, Ma’a Nonu, and Conrad Smith.The Springboks got the better of the collision game in the first half but when things got a bit loose, the All Blacks tore them apart with some typically clinical play, including 11 points from the boot of Dan Carter. The visitors effectively won the second half 20-0. “At 16-12 we were in the game. They were forced to play from deep and we managed to put them under huge pressure,” said Bok coach Heyneke Meyer. “Just after half-time they scored from a turn-over, then Carter took over. They were superb to close out the game and we need to learn from that. They used their opportunities, we did not.”All Black captain McCaw, who was showing the bruises of battle after the game, said that his 100th Test win was hugely satisfying. “These test matches are brutal and you have to be on your game, and I was proud of the boys tonight.”Coach Meyer has praised McCaw, saying that he’s never seen him play a bad game, and that his son is actually in awe of the great All Black skipper.“My kid is a big Richie McCaw fan. After the match (at Loftus in 2006) he gave his boots to my son. That’s the type of thing the public doesn’t always see.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Situated in the Casa Muraro in Venice and staged as an open house, the exhibition responds unsolicited to the proposal by Rem Koolhaas, curator of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, that architecture focus on its “fundamentals.”According to the organisers, “House Housing replies by considering architecture’s economic fundamentals, which locate housing at the center of the current economic regime, with the United States as an influential node in a transnational network. In architecture, economic fundamentals are built from the ground up. The laws of real estate—relating to the acquisition of land, the financing of construction, the cost of building maintenance and services, profit from rent or resale, the value of equity, or the price of credit—inexorably shape any building component (like a window) and any building type (like a house).””They are visible even in the residential work of such singular figures as Frank Lloyd Wright, not least because the Greek oikos, or household, forms the root of the word “economy” itself. But look closely and you will see that what seems fundamental, basic, or natural is, like any other law, a historical artifact permanently under construction and subject to change. House Housing narrates nineteen brief episodes from across the last one hundred years in a mixture of domestic media.”Find out more about the event here.Dae Student Building / Arkylab + Mauricio RuizSelected ProjectsVenice Biennale 2014: Pedro Gadanho Explains Why Portugal’s Pavilion Has No Building…Architecture News Share Save this picture!June 06, 2014 Share “COPY” ArchDaily “COPY” Event: “House Housing: An Untimely History of Architecture and Real Estate” Copy#TagsEventsResidential ArchitectureHousingVenice Biennale 2014VeniceHousingColumbia UniversityThis event was submitted by an ArchDaily user.

Qatar charges Kenyan with “disinformation” for blogging about migrant workers

0 Comments

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Qatari authorities to drop the “disinformation” charges they have brought against Malcolm Bidali, a Kenyan blogger they detained for a month for blogging about migrant worker rights, and regrets that this is still such a sensitive subject to cover in Qatar. Employed as a security guard in Doha, Bidali blogged under the pseudonym of “Noaharticulates” about conditions for himself and other migrant workers in Qatar. He was finally released on 2 June after being arrested on 4 May at the Doha dormitory when he lived. His Twitter and Instagram accounts have been inactive since then.After holding him incommunicado for the first three weeks following his arrest, the Qatari authorities finally revealed on 26 May that he is charged with receiving payments from a “foreign agent” to “create and spread disinformation.” He often denounced violations of the rights of migrants employed at the various 2022 FIFA World Cup construction sites in Qatar.He was held in solitary confinement and was interrogated without being accompanied by a lawyer, according to Migrants-Rights.org, a site specialising in migrant worker rights in the Middle East, to which he regularly contributed.According to Amnesty International, Bidali may have been a phishing victim in the days prior to his arrest. Tweets by apparent human rights groups that mentioned him had a link leading to an URL capable of recording data about anyone clicking on it. It may have been used to identify him.“The jailing of Malcolm Bidali shows that the rights of foreign workers is still a very sensitive subject in Qatar, despite what the authorities would like us to believe,” said Sabrina Bennoui. “They must drop the charges against this blogger and allow all journalists the freedom to cover any subject in Qatar, instead of trying to restrict coverage to the 2022 FIFA World Cup they are hosting.”Qatar is ranked 128th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2021 World Press Freedom Index.

The televisions are breathtaking; 9 beauties including two 90 inch LEDs that are the largest commercially produced televisions in the world. And we can’t wait to see what Big Daddy does with his Chicken Wings.“This location is much larger so we can accommodate more guests more comfortably” said Big Daddy’s Fire Grill Partner Amer Hanna. “We are introducing our soon to be famous Chicken Wings, and a Catering Menu that will blow you away.”“Customers are so excited to have us there,” Amer said, referring to the original East Pasadena location. “They begged us to open another one!”Big Daddy’s became wildly popular among both foodies and burger fanatics because their food is prepared with a delicious difference: the beef is 100% Angus (even the chili) and the meat is marinated and smoked by 100% Oak Fire – imbuing the meat with a bold flavor and searing in the juices.Wood grilling plays an essential role in the restaurant’s unusually flavorful burgers and meats. The technique is more costly and harder to produce – but the incredible aroma and juicy meats just cannot be imitated by any other method.“Being across the street from the Hospital is going to be great. The people at the hospital are very excited to have us there – especially since we are planning on being open 24 hours” said Hanna. “We are going to create an atmosphere here that will be something of a safe haven; a place where all hospital employees and visitors can come relax and feel at home with our amazing food and friendly staff.”“And the televisions are just amazing. 9 screens all together that can all play different games. The two 90 inch screens are unreal. It’s going to be like watching the Lakers courtside!”Big Daddy’s Fire Grill will open November 1st, opposite The Huntington Memorial Hospital in the busy Orangewood Shopping Center at 147 W California Blvd., Pasadena, Â (626) 356-4900.The first location can be found at 2122 E.
