Bundee Aki picks up sizeable ban after heavily debated red card

first_imgWednesday Mar 24, 2021 Bundee Aki picks up sizeable ban after heavily debated red card Ireland and Connacht centre Bundee Aki was last night handed a four-match ban following his high tackle on Billy Vunipola during Saturday’s 32-18 win over England.ADVERTISEMENTAki became the first Irish player in history to receive two red cards at Test level after making contact with the head of Vunipola in the second half of the Guinness Six Nations clash in Dublin.An independent disciplinary committee accepted the challenge was “reckless rather than deliberate or intentional” and deemed it “just inches too high”.The 30-year-old will now miss Connacht’s Challenge Cup last-16 tie with Leicester on Saturday, April 3, as well as the province’s following three games either in Europe or the Rainbow Cup.“The disciplinary committee determined that the suspension should cover Mr Aki’s next four matches for Connacht in competitions organised by EPCR (European Professional Club Rugby) or Pro Rugby Championship,” read a statement.Aki, who was previously sent off against Samoa at the 2019 World Cup, accepted during his hearing that he had committed an act of foul play and it warranted a red card.ADVERTISEMENTWith the entry point for the offence set at six weeks, he was denied the maximum 50 per cent discount because of his previous disciplinary record but his sanction was reduced by two weeks, partly due to his “clear remorse and concern for the welfare of Mr Vunipola”.Vunipola was left motionless on the Aviva Stadium pitch following the 63rd-minute collision before being replaced.Speaking about the incident in the aftermath of the game, Ireland head coach Andy Farrell said: “It’s a tough one. The rules are the rules but at the same time Billy seemed to be on a downward motion certainly with his head.“But if there’s any contact, they are very stringent with that at this moment in time. He’s gutted, Bundee. He’s good mates with Billy as well and he was in the tunnel making sure they’re still friends, which they definitely are.”ADVERTISEMENTAki received a three-week suspension for his World Cup red card following a high tackle on UJ Seuteni, causing him to miss the remainder of that tournament.The New Zealand-born player, who has won 31 Test caps for Ireland, was making his first appearance of the 2021 Six Nations in place of the injured Garry Ringrose.Elsewhere, France lock Paul Willemse received a two-week ban for the illegal challenge he made against Wales.

McKinney Focused on Trade Expansion

first_img McKinney Focused on Trade Expansion Home Indiana Agriculture News McKinney Focused on Trade Expansion Ted McKinney, the new USDA Undersecretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs, has been busy since being sworn in. He has visited India, Brazil, Columbia, and Panama recently with the goal of increasing trade opportunities.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture is putting a new emphasis on generating more trade opportunities overseas for American agriculture. Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue recently said his goal is to have McKinney become a member of the “million-mile club.” McKinney spoke from a recent trip to Panama City, saying the goal is to remind trade partners that “we’re open for business, including both exports and imports.” The four countries he has taken trips to are not the biggest U.S. trading partners, but the goal is to “leave no stone unturned” when it comes to generating more business for agriculture. The U.S. signed free-trade agreements with Colombia and Panama in 2012 and trade has flourished since then.The intention of these trips is also to grow trade both ways, with McKinney saying the U.S. benefits from imports too, especially of products the country does not produce itself.

On Sunday, Interpol announced Hongwei’s resignation via Twitter.According to BBC, China detaining its own citizens has led to concerns from international institutions, like the World Bank and the United Nations, appointing Chinese officials. The awkward press conference between the U.S. and the Chinese Heads of StateFollowing his trip to North Korea, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo answered reporters’ questions with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the exchange showed the increasing friction between the two nations.Along with the growing trade war that President Trump constantly mentions in stump speeches, the Chinese government is wary of U.S. policies when it comes to Taiwan. According to Reuters, China views policies like selling arms to Taiwan as direct attack on mutual trust.New climate report says the Paris Accord isn’t enough to prevent rising temperaturesThe United Nations (UN) has released a new report on climate change that predicts increasing mass die-off of coral reefs, wildfires and increasing food shortages by 2040.The researchers, 91 scientists from 40 countries, propose several changes that would have to be implemented immediately to prevent the rise of temperature by 2.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Implementing a large carbon tax, limiting coal as electricity sources from 40 percent to between one and seven percent and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by less than half by 2030 and completely by 2050 were some of the changes suggested.According to the New York Times, these recommendations not only go against President Trump’s positions on climate change, but the Trump administration also disagrees with UN report. The administration released their own report in August that says while climate change is real, the rise of temperatures by seven degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 is unavoidable at this point, so there is no reason to implement regulations.Deadly aftershock in HaitiHaiti is recovering after a 5.2 magnitude aftershock killed at least 12 and injured 188 others only one day after a 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit.According to the Washington Post, the aftershock originated 9.8 miles north-northwest of the Haitian town Port-de Paix, which was the most damaged area.Officials have not reported an estimated cost of the damage. But with government instability and a weak economy, the nation remains vulnerable.Showtime airs short documentary on New York Times investigation in Trump’s wealthThe premium cable network Showtime aired a 24-minute documentary following the three investigative journalists – Susanne Craig, Russell Buettner and David Barstow – who looked into the transfer of wealth from Fred Trump to his children, including President Donald Trump, in the New York Times special investigation released last week.While the documentary does not have additional information than what’s in the lengthy piece, what the film does show is the journalists’ methodology and perspective as they follow this story.This film seems to operate as just another piece of media that goes in conjunction with the New York Times piece to proactively combat the accusations of fake news.That’s all we have for today.

NRA turn blind eye to County Limerick ‘deathtrap’

He described the stretch of road at the entrance to Kilcornan National School as “treacherous” before raising concerns about children’s safety due to the lack of public footpath in the area.“We have never gotten anywhere with the NRA. We have tried everything but have no authority of our own to implement safety measures. This is a national roads issue,” Cllr Sheahan pointed out.“Even if we won the Lotto tonight we would need the NRA’s authorisation. Road safety in Kilcornan has been a bone of contention for a long time. The road is a deathtrap,” he added.Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien also raised major concerns about the lack of lighting and traffic calming measures in the vicinity of the primary school and community hall, which is located beside Curraghchase Forest Park.“This is a great facility. What we can do we will do for the people of Kilcornan,” Cllr O’Brien promised.Fine Gael councillor Tom Neville echoed the sentiments of his fellow councillors and told members of Kilcornan Community Council that they had been “flogging a dead horse” in their dealings with the NRA.“They are not forthcoming,” he said.Cllr Stephen Keary expressed his disappointment with the NRA and said the people of Kilcornan were at a “huge disadvantage from a traffic safety point of view”.“The infrastructure is not adequate and it’s a huge public safety risk. Nothing has been done.”Limerick City and County Council’s Operations manager for the South and West Divisions, Brian Kennedy told council members that the NRA are aware of the issues in Kilcornan and don’t consider it a priority.

The Council has issued the following specific directives to all the centers of legal education while generally advising the legal educational institutes to be considerate towards students and to lend them a helping hand during these extraordinary circumstances. To frame an alternative flexible scheme for payment of fees in easy installments instead of a lumpsum payment in one stretchTo adjust the payable fees by reducing the proportionate costs on electricity and infrastructure maintenance which are being saved due to absence of physical classesTo sympathetically consider any specific request(s) by students concerning payment of fees keeping in mind the hardships due to the ongoing pandemicTo lend a helping hand to troubled students and to not impose any penalty on fees and to not debar them from attending online classes in case of their inability to pay fees. The said directive has been issued in response to the requests of students received by the Bar Council of India from across the country with one consistent plea that Centers of Legal Education should accept payment of fees in installment during these times. They stated that their failure to meet the fee demand will result in their debarment from online classes which will result in huge mental agony and a loss of opportunity to have access to legal education. Requests to issue directions to waive off certain components like utilization of infrastructure fees, library and other on ground facilities that are not being utilized from the total fee were also made to the BCI. The students pleaded that due to the pandemic, there is a general loss of income of parents owing to lay-offs, reduced salaries and losses in businesses and reasonable concessions in fee must be granted to them to face these tough times. They also stated that their cost of education has seen an increase during the pandemic due to the incurring costs on data packs, desktops/ laptops that are needed to access online classes.Click Here To Download Letter[Read Letter] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
