Toulon’s steps to Heineken Cup success

first_imgToulon retained the Heineken Cup with a 23-6 victory over Saracens in the final at the Millennium Stadium. So how did they do it? Jonny Wilkinson‘s kicking ability has dominated rugby headlines for more than a decade and in his penultimate game his accuracy in front of the posts again came to the fore. First there was the conversion out wide, then a drop-goal with his ‘wrong’ right foot and in the second half he slotted two penalties, one from long range, and another touchline conversion. Toulon will be hoping he is similarly on target in the Top 14 final against Castres on Saturday, but when the final whistle blows in Paris his famous feet will grace a rugby pitch no more, at least in a playing sense. He and his boots will be missed.Boot boy: Jonny Wilkinson drops a right-footed goal at the Millennium StadiumCool handsIt was a match in which players rarely broke free from close-quarter exchanges but there were a couple of moments when Toulon’s huge forwards showed surprisingly soft hands – and one such moment led to their second try. Red-letter day: Toulon captain Jonny Wilkinson lifts the Heineken Cup after their win over Saracens Midway through the second half, Toulon released the ball wide and Mathieu Bastareaud charged forward. On his outside were Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe and Juan Smith. Some players would be wary of releasing the ball to a pair of back-rows famed more for their skills without the ball, but these two produced a sublime back and forth down the right touchline to outfox Alex Goode. Smith was the man to supply the finishing touch, defying the doctors who told him he would never play again in the process.So Toulon march on to a Top 14 final and with more big names joining the French club next season they are sure to be contenders in the new European Rugby Champions Cup too. Smash hits Saracens may be famed for their ‘Wolf Pack’ defence but on many occasions in Cardiff it was they who were on the receiving end of huge hits. Toulon hooker Craig Burden nailed opposite number Schalk Brits with one tackle in the first half that had the whole stadium wincing, while Bakkies Botha, Juan Smith and Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe weren’t adverse to making brute force count either. By putting Saracens on the back foot at the contact area, Toulon were able to gain control as the first-time European finalists struggled to adapt to not being the most physical team on the pitch.As a sidenote, one tackle not worthy of the reaction it received was Owen Farrell’s hit on Bryan Habana. Yes, it was late but the flamboyant dive Habana delivered was completely unnecessary – that has no place in rugby.

In the 31st minute, however, Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell combined to reawaken any fans who had nodded off with a well-worked try.Giteau kicked ahead, Mitchell chased hard, collected the ball and produced a great offload back to his fellow Aussie, who scampered past Richard Wigglesworth to touch down. It was a classy score worthy of a Heineken Cup final.Happy feet LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight last_img read more

‘Expanding Empire’ — in 1969 and today

first_imgThe following excerpt from “Expanding Empire — The global war drive of big business and the forces that will stop it” was written in 1969 during the Vietnam War. The author, Vince Copeland, was a founding member of Workers World Party and had been a militant steel worker fired in 1950 during the Korean War for his revolutionary politics. “Expanding Empire”  is today more relevant than ever. The full pamphlet can be found at www.workers.org/cm/empire.html.The expand-or-die aims of U.S. big business were relatively concealed from the American people during both world wars. The expansion of the internal market in the 1920s, 1940s and 1950s helped to make foreign trade and investment seem unimportant. And the plunder of the external world being almost unaccompanied by territorial acquisition, it went unnoticed by the great masses of this country. Moreover, both world wars were “started” by the “other side.” That is, the pressure of the expand-or-die logic was working harder on German big business — and Japanese and Italian — in World War II, than on the Allies.Furthermore, since Hitler was even more brutal, vicious and reactionary than the Kaiser, it was difficult to recognize in him merely a different type of representative of big business than U.S presidents. It is only today in retrospect that many progressives can clearly see him as the prototype of what some American representatives of the corporations have already become today. World War II seemed, even more than World War I, to be fought “to make the world safe for democracy.”The results of World War II, however, are in themselves the best lecture on what that war was all about as far as the rulers of the United States were concerned. Contrary to the wish-thoughts of many sincere anti-fascists, these rulers fought an imperialist war, rather than an anti-fascist war.U.S. big business, the biggest owner of worldwide property in all history as a result of the war, double-crossed its Soviet and Chinese allies, who had borne the brunt of the fighting and done the bulk of the dying. It cheated and exploited its own capitalist allies — Britain, France, Belgium, Holland, etc. — using Marshall Plan “aid” to honeycomb these countries with U.S. investments.It hobnobbed with its wealthiest Nazi “enemies,” building up their industries, collaborating with the very banks that had backed and virtually created Hitler. It freed the Japanese militarists it had at first purged and imprisoned. It formed partnerships with the Zaibatsu monopolists who had bombed Pearl Harbor. And it raked in billions upon billions in unprecedented profits. This was what World War II meant for U.S. big business.And it was all more or less predictable, on the basis of the character of big business and of the state that was its political instrument.World War II was confusing, however, because it appeared to be a war against Nazism.For the Soviet Union, it was such a war. But there was no big business in the Soviet Union. And independently of the virtues and vices of Stalin, as well as the glorious heroism of Stalingrad, [for the USSR] the war was a defense of a new and progressive social system as against big business gone mad.For the United States, it was a different war. First, it was a war to prevent Hitler from expanding at the expense of the United States. And second, it was a war for the United States to expand at the expense of its soon-to-be exhausted allies — Britain, France, etc. The U.S. has now penetrated into the former colonies of those countries with many billion dollars worth of investments, and in fact, has challenged the hegemony of much of big business in the “mother countries” as well.The most powerful explanation for the cynicism and disillusionment of our age may be unknown to the masses, but the general situation has been all too clear: the sacrifice of 40 million lives for the “four freedoms,” for “peace” and “democracy” and the like, only to see the “freedom” of a world laboring under a $112 billion mortgage to the U.S. banks, the “peace” created by the most deadly war machine in history and the “democracy” guaranteed by military and fascist puppets of the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Police defuse a parcel bomb at El País

first_img News SpainEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Spain News December 13, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police defuse a parcel bomb at El País Reporters Without Borders today voiced its outrage over yesterday’s attempted attack on the El País offices in Barcelona in the form of a parcel bomb that was defused by police. The booby-trapped parcel contained 50 grams of explosive that would have gone off when opened. However, the newspaper’s security guards decided the parcel was suspect when scanning incoming mail and called the police.”The Spanish press is again the target of terrorists, after a long series of attacks in the Basque Country,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “Everything must be done to combat the spread of violence toward the news media in Spain,” Ménard said, pointing out that some 50 persons were present at the El País office when the bomb was detected and many of them could have been injured if it had exploded.According to initial findings, the parcel bomb was mailed from Milan by an “anticapitalist group”. The parcel contained a book and a letter in Italian signed by an anarchist group calling itself “The Five Cs” (Cell against capitalism, prisons, their jailers and their prison cells). The letter contained threats against certain “capitalist enterprises” and demanded the release of prisons held for more than 20 years. The group could be linked to one of the Italian anarchist groups campaigning for the release of prisoners held in special conditions of detention.Anarchists Claudio Lavazza and Giovanni Barcia, the presumed leaders of the “Five Cs,” are serving 50-year sentences in Huelva prison (in southern Spain) for the murder of two policemen in 1996. The Italian police believe that the bomb was sent to the Catalan offices of El País for the sake of increased media impact. The police attribute several attacks to the “Five Cs,” including a parcel bomb that exploded at the Italian television network RT4 on 18 July 2001, inflicting minor injuries on one person.The attempted attack on El País has certain similarities with the one against journalist Jesus Maria Zuloaga at the headquarters of the Madrid daily La Razón on 25 April 2000, in which a video cassette-sized parcel bomb was detected during a scan. Responsibility was claimed by a group calling itself “The Anarchists,” which said it wanted to demonstrate solidarity with prisoners and press for the release of prisoners who were ill. It also demanded the abolition of solitary confinement regimes in prisons. In 2000, a total of seven parcel bombs were sent to newspapers or journalists in Spain.Reporters Without Borders notes that journalists are a preferred target of terrorists in Spain. In all, about 100 Spanish journalists are receiving government protection or the protection of private security companies, and the news media are stepping up security measures, in particular, installing bullet-proof windows and scanning machines.

The High Court confirmed the conviction of Samadhan and reversed acquittal of others.One of the contentions raised by the appellant was that the initial information [at 5.45 P.M.) on the day of the incident] talked of an attack by one motorcycle ridden by two persons. However, when the FIR was actually allegedly recorded, this version disappeared and an improvement, which had involved other accused in order that they be implicated, was registered, they contended. According to them, it is the first intimation of the crime which constitutes the first information report (FIR) and that the credibility of an “official” or formal FIR shown to have been registered later, is suspect as it affords considerable leeway to the police to cook up fictions and falsely implicate innocent persons. They argued that the subsequent statement (registered late in the night at 11.45 P.M.) of the complainant, had to be treated as a statement under Section 161 of the Cr.PC. The Trial Court, to acquit Netaji and Balasaheb, agreed with this contention, while the High Court rejected it.So the Apex Court bench comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and S. Ravindra Bhat considered the issue whether the initial intimation received by the police on telephone (at 5.45 P.M.) on the day of the incident, constituted an FIR. “A cryptic phone call without complete information or containing part-information about the commission of a cognizable offence cannot always be treated as an FIR. This proposition has been accepted by this Court in T.T. Antony v. State of Kerala (2001) 6 SCC 181 and Damodar v. State of Rajasthan (2004) 12 SCC 336. A mere message or a telephonic message which does not clearly specify the offence, cannot be treated as an FIR.”The court also referred to following observations made in Surajit Sarkar v. State of West Bengal (2013) 2 SCC 146: “A bare reading of this makes it clear that even though oral information given to an officer-in-charge of a police station can be treated as an FIR, yet some procedural formalities are required to be completed. They include reducing the information in writing and reading it over to the informant and obtaining his or her signature on the transcribed information. . In the case of a telephonic conversation received from an unknown person, the question of reading over that information to the anonymous informant does not arise nor does the appending of a signature to the information, as recorded, arise.”Taking note of the facts of the case, the bench said:”It is quite evident from the record, therefore, that the intimation given by two individuals – Ravi Harkar and Vishwajeet Thombre merely set out the bare facts of an attack; the information was incomplete; neither the name of the victim nor the names of the alleged attackers nor even the precise location where the incident occurred were mentioned. Applying the tests indicated by the judgments of this Court (referred to previously), this court is of the opinion that the High Court, in the appeal before it, correctly inferred that the first information recorded at 17.45 hrs could not be treated as an FIR. In these circumstances, the details of the event which occurred, the nature of the attack, the place of the attack, the names and identities of the accused were set out fully when PW-1 recorded the statement at 23.45 hrs. – that constitutes the FIR.The bench also rejected the contention that the police sought to improve the initial version and somehow roped in the accused falsely.”Quite often, depending upon how and what people see and perceive about an incident, when they narrate it subsequently, the rendition might not be accurate in describing the sequence or even the facts completely. Much would depend on the relative distances and the angles where those individuals might have been placed or located, relative to the incident or event. Therefore, the inclusion or omission of more than two accused cannot be a matter of grave suspicion. It may be in the given case, an aspect to be kept in mind when other circumstances pointing to false implication might well exist. Per se, however, it cannot be said that the omission to mention four assailants falsifies the prosecution story.”, the bench added.Upholding the High Court judgment, the bench observed that the physical presence of the accused  at the site of the actual commission of the crime and the deposition of independent witnesses about their role, clearly establishes that it was for the purpose of facilitating the offence, the commission of which was the aim of the joint criminal venture. “The presence of these accused, to facilitate the execution of the common design amounts to actual participation in the criminal act. The evidence – i.e. the exhortation by these accused, their active role in attacking the deceased, chasing him and leaving the crime scene together, clinches that there was a consensus of the minds of persons participating in the criminal action to bring about a particular result. It was this aspect which the trial court glaringly overlooked, and instead, misdirected itself grossly in focusing upon the first intimation, treating it as the FIR, and therefore, proceeding to doubt the prosecution version. It found no lacunae in the testimonies of the eyewitnesses discussed above. However, proceeding on the thesis that the first intimation was the FIR, and that it did not describe the role of four persons, but only mentioned two, the trial court acquitted the two accused”, the court said.Case: Netaji Achyut Shinde (Patil) Vs.
