The Stormers vs Cheetahs chaos in Cape Town

first_imgFriday May 18, 2012 The Stormers vs Cheetahs chaos in Cape Town The Stormers and the Cheetahs got into an almighty tangle at Newlands last weekend, resulting in two players receiving off-field yellow cards after the whole thing was put on a white card. There were some requests to have it featured, so here you go. Ashley Johnson, who is off to London Wasps soon, and Stormers hooker Deon Fourie were both issued off-field yellow cards for their part in starting an ugly scrap that at one stage appeared to involve most players from either side.While the punches weren’t clear to see in the footage, both players were found guilty of starting the chaos, contravening Law 10.4(m): Acts contrary to good sportsmanship.If you’re still unsure, the off-field yellow card is issued for foul-play incidents that are very close to, but not quite, red card offences. It doesn’t affect the next game at all (teams don’t start with 14..), but it does go on their disciplinary record, as a normal yellow card would.In this instance referee Steve Walsh consulted with assistant ref Jonathan Kaplan, who fell back on the white card for everyone, rather than picking out any players in particular. He did however mention an earlier incident, resulting in a yellow card, and a rather unhappy Stormers captain.It’s an intesting bit of footage as Walsh in action is always entertaining, as is the way Jean De Villiers basically said that a white card is a cop out. There’s also a nice hit by Bryan Habana at the beginning of the clip.The Stormers won the game 16-14, and you can view full highlights of the match hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play 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.

The Gurkhas have fought in the British Army for over 200 years and their recruitment process remains one of the toughest in the world. Central to the recruitment tests is the Doko race – an uphill sprint in the Himalayan foothills with a weighted traditional Nepali Doko basket on your back. The Gurkha Welfare Trust is offering members of the public (and the military) the chance to see if they have what it takes to complete the challenge. Participants will race for 5km and have three choices for their Doko basket weight – 5kg, 10kg or 15kg, all of which are provided. The challenge is to finish within the 46 minutes that Gurkha recruits are required to. The UK fundraising races take place in the historic grounds of Greystoke Castle, Cumbria on Sunday 23 May and on Wimbledon Common, London on Sunday 6 June.

Overall, just under £737,000 has now been raised to help address Ben’s £1million fundraising shortfall. All funds raised will help Ben support automotive industry people with their mental health, physical health and wellbeing.last_img read more

Complaint filed in Paris about jamming of Radio Erena

first_img Receive email alerts EritreaAfrica Activities in the field January 13, 2021 Find out more April 14, 2021 Find out more RSF_en to go further News Help by sharing this information Organisation November 8, 2012 – Updated on May 1, 2016 Complaint filed in Paris about jamming of Radio Erena Newscenter_img Follow the news on Eritrea News Reports Reporters Without Borders filed a complaint with the public prosecutor in Paris on 6 November accusing persons unknown of acts of piracy against Radio Erena, an Eritrean exile radio station based in Paris which broadcasts by satellite to the Horn of Africa and which is backed by Reporters Without Borders.A pirate transmission jammed the station’s signal on 14 August. Arabsat, the satellite operator that carried Radio Erena on its BADR-6 satellite, reacted by suspending the station because the jamming was disrupting other signals. It restored Radio Erena on 2 September only to suspend it again two days later, this time indefinitely, because the jamming had resumed.The station’s website was meanwhile the target of a cyber-attack on 28 August. More information about all these acts of piracy.“Radio Erena’s programmes can no longer be heard by Eritreans living in Eritrea because its satellite broadcasting has been paralysed for more than three months,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A judicial investigation has to be launched in France with the aim of establishing the precise origin of these acts of sabotage and prosecuting all those responsible, both the perpetrators and the instigators. We have done this because we want to shed light on all the circumstances surrounding this piracy, including where the jamming is coming from and who ordered it.“Geolocation indicates that the pirate transmission jamming the signal originates from within Eritrea. The government must be doing this in order to gag an independent broadcaster it clearly finds very irritating. This should come as no surprise from the rulers of a country ranked last in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index for the past five years.“But President Issaias Afeworki’s government will not get away with it. The complaint that we have filed points out that this piracy is completely illegal. Neither Radio Erena nor Reporters Without Borders have said their final word.”The Radio Erena staff and its supporters have been able to repair the damage to the website while mirror sites have been created. But satellite broadcasting has not resumed so the station is not being received in Eritrea or anywhere else in the Horn of Africa. For the time being Radio Erena is only broadcasting on the Internet, but only the Eritrean diaspora can access the web broadcasts because the Internet is not sufficiently developed in Eritrea.As a Paris-based radio station, Radio Erena operates under a convention ratified by France’s Higher Council for Broadcasting (CSA). The complaint alleged “disruption of over-the-air broadcasting by an authorized service” and “disruption of an automated data processing system” under article L. 39-1 of the Post and Electronic Communications Code and articles 323-2 and 323-5 of the Criminal Code. Radio Erena in the French and international press:- “Radio Erena, fighting for the airwaves” (Libération)- “Radio Erena, the free voice that Eritrea wants to gag” (Le Monde)- “Radio Erena is the only independent radio station broadcasting in Eritrea, so it’s no surprise they don’t like it” (Interview with Biniam Simon by RFI’s Sonia Rolley) Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision EritreaAfrica Activities in the field Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home?

Customers Bank Introduces ReStart America Biz Checking Account

first_img WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 22, 2021 Twitter Local NewsBusiness TAGS  center_img WEST READING, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Customers Bank, a top-5 nationally ranked PPP lender that participated in more than 100,000 SBA-approved PPP loans during the first rounds of the federal stimulus providing an aggregate value of more than $5 billion to small businesses, announced its newest financial account designed specifically to help businesses through this next phase of recovery. The ReStart America Biz Checking account provides a 1.00% APY* for 28 weeks. For nearly a year, the pandemic has created many challenges, especially for small business owners who had to take swift action and make tough decisions to protect the health of their employees and businesses. Knowing that small businesses are still struggling, the bank made the deliberate decision that to assist a larger number of small businesses, it would go beyond participating in Second Draw PPP loans, as other lenders struggled to overcome PPP fatigue while still assisting their customers. In January, the bank created a white-label PPP solution to empower other lenders to offer an online PPP loan application, funding and servicing solution to first-time and Second Draw borrowers. More than 300 banks and approximately two dozen chambers of commerce and other organizations are currently offering their members and small businesses in the surrounding communities access to PPP loans through the white-label program. Customers Bank is furthering its support for small businesses by introducing the new business checking account that is especially helpful for companies with 20 or fewer employees and firms which have not been able to access a banking relationship with a traditional financial institution. “We understand that regardless of whether you are a sole proprietor or managing a business with hundreds of employees, it’s crucial to have a long-term financial partner focused on your success,” stated Richard Ehst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Customers Bank. “That means having intelligent people capable of creating short and long-term strategies to meet your immediate recovery needs and support your future growth.” As a leading super-community bank with a growing national footprint, Customers Bank created the ReStart America Biz Checking Account to support the second phase of the American economic recovery. The new account provides commercial customers with convenient access to the accounts and services they need to forge ahead. “Many financial experts recommend establishing new accounts for First Draw and Second Draw PPP loans to aid in the forgiveness process, but not all business checking accounts are equal,” stated Sam Sidhu, Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Customers Bank. “We established the ReStart America account to enable small businesses to manage PPP funds and pay for eligible expenses while earning interest.” Key product features of the ReStart America Biz Checking account include 1.00% APY for the 28-week PPP covered period or 196 days (28 weeks), as well as a low $50 minimum balance to open the account. Businesses interested in opening a Customers Bank ReStart America Biz Checking account can visit To learn more about Customers Bank’s commercial banking offerings and any of its other products or services, please visit * Available wherever permitted by law to new commercial customers with no active Customers Bank Commercial Checking account. As of 2/5/2021, earn 1.00% Annual Percentage Yield (APY) on all balances for the period beginning on opening date of the Restart America Biz Checking and continuing 196 calendar days, thereafter earn 0.05% APY. This is a variable rate account and the interest rate APY may change after the first 196 calendar days from the account opening date. Offer may be withdrawn at any time without notice. Fees may reduce earnings. Available to Commercial customers only. About Customers Bank Customers Bank, a subsidiary of Customers Bancorp, Inc.
