Alun Wyn Jones retained despite Gatland’s threat

first_imgTuesday Feb 9, 2010 Alun Wyn Jones retained despite Gatland’s threat Welsh coach Warren Gatland publicly stated that Alun Wyn Jones punishment for the yellow card he received against England could be a sacking for Waless next match. Hes gone against that now though, picking Jones for the team to play Scotland.Jones was spotted by referee Alain Roland as he stuck out a leg to trip England hooker Dylan Hartley. Roland immediately issued the sin-binning, and Wales conceded 17 points while Jones was on the sideline.So often we see teams doing okay with only 14 men, with the average points being scored during that period being seven. But on this occasion England scored two converted tries, and kicked the penalty that was awarded for the trip.Ultimately, according to coach Gatland, that cost Wales the match. His frankness in the interview after the match was refreshing to see, if not surprising. Normally coaches will stand by their player publicly and give them a telling off in private.Some will say Gatland should have reacted differently, and others will say that hes quite simply using Jones as a scapegoat for an under par performance. Seventy minutes were played with 15 men, and Wales managed to get within three points at one stage, before throwing a loose pass that was intercepted.So despite what he said in that interview, Gatland decided to retain the British & Irish Lions lock in the starting lineup for the next match.Kicking coach Neil Jenkins predicted that Jones wouldnt be dropped.“I think we’ve all made mistakes and Alun made one on the weekend and we’ve had other players in the past that have been sin-binned and we’ve come through it unscathed.“On Saturday we didn’t, we conceded some points, but it’s one of them things. I think we learned from it and we move on. I think sometimes some things are said, aren’t they? Alun’s a fantastic rugby player.“He’s made a genuine mistake and we’ve got to accept that, deal with it and move on and hopefully discipline-wise we’ll be fine next Saturday,” Jenkins said.This clip shows the incident at hand, as well as the resultant points scored within that ten minute period when Jones was off the field. It also then features the interview with Gatland, and some thoughts from Shane Williams. What do you think of Gatland’s reaction, and the subsequent selection of Jones? Time: 04:58 Wales team to face Scotland on Saturday: Lee Byrne, Leigh Halfpenny, James Hook, Jamie Roberts, Shane Williams, Stephen Jones, Gareth Cooper, Paul James, Gareth Williams, Adam Jones, Jonathan Thomas, Alun Wyn Jones, Andy Powell, Martyn Williams, Ryan Jones. Replacements: Huw Bennett, Gethin Jenkins, Bradley Davies, Sam Warburton, Richie Rees, Andrew Bishop, Tom Shanklin.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.

Mickey Mouse and the rat named Walt Disney

first_imgThis year tens of thousands of workers at Disney resorts have opened up a struggle to counter the drop in inflation-adjusted pay that has left 85 percent of the workers earning less than $15 an hour. Many workers depend on government programs to survive. (To learn more about this struggle, read Kuhlenbeck’s previous WW article at tinyurl.com/y8q3p3xz/.) The current battle is on, but its long history begins with its notorious founder, Walt Disney. “Uncle Walt” is celebrated as the visionary responsible for an entertainment empire “bringing joy to millions.” But the truth about him is far different: He was a union-busting, FBI snitch and his politics were self-serving. The myth of the ‘self-made’ mogulWalt Disney (1901-1966) was born in Chicago. He began his career as a cartoonist and commercial illustrator. At the suggestion of his brother Roy, Disney moved to California in 1923. Together they formed the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in Burbank, which changed its name to the Walt Disney Studio in 1929. The company went on to become the largest animation studio in the world and later a media empire. Disney may have called himself a “self-made man,”  but hundreds of animators toiled in the studio to bring fantastic visions to the screen. Despite the many contributors, Disney was the one who received the credit, the accolades and the awards. Disney was not a “self-made man,” as the success of his company would not have been possible without the labor of those he exploited. Animation Guild President Emeritus Tom Sito told Workers World, “I’m sure the public thought he drew everything by himself. While in actuality, he personally stopped drawing in the 20s, when he could hire better artists.” Despite Disney’s opposition to unions, the 1941 Disney cartoonists’ strike brought the union shop to the company. Disney became more aggressive in his anti-worker politics, but his political views were always troubling. Anti-Semitism and flirtations with fascismWalt Disney often resembled a villain from one of the films he produced. Coinciding with an anti-Semitic world view, he was a member of the isolationist “America First” movement and flirted with pro-Nazi elements before World War II. As Disney animator Arthur Babbitt told Marc Eliot, the author of “Walt Disney: Hollywood’s Dark Prince” (1993): “On more than one occasion I observed Walt Disney and [attorney Gunther Lessing], along with a lot of other prominent Nazi-afflicted [sic] Hollywood personalities. Disney was going to meetings all the time.”The meetings were for such groups as the American Nazi Party and the German American Bund. According to Eliot, Disney was likely trying to mend financial relationships with Nazi Germany so his films could be sold to their market. However, the real picture of a bigot willing to do business with the regime cannot be airbrushed from the historical record. Not surprisingly, Disney was an admirer of auto-industry tycoon Henry Ford. Ford was a fellow anti-Semite and union-buster who reciprocated Disney’s admiration by telling him “he was a successful self-made protestant in a field dominated by Jews,” as quoted in Eliot’s book. Another Ford admirer was Adolf Hitler, who awarded Ford the Grand Cross of the German Eagle.FBI snitch and the Hollywood BlacklistAfter the war, and having rebranded himself as an anti-Nazi patriot, Disney carried out the bidding of the crypto-fascist FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Disney’s reactionary credentials made it likelier for the long-reigning FBI director to enlist Disney’s services as a domestic spy. As noted by Eliot, “His assignment was to report on the activities of Hollywood actors, writers, producers, directors, technicians, and union activists the Federal Bureau of Investigation suspected of political subversion.” The bureau recommended that Disney be a contact for the Los Angeles Bureau’s Special Agent in Charge, as stated in an FBI memo from Dec. 16, 1954. His relationship with the FBI lasted from 1940 until his death in 1966. Disney led a personal crusade in stamping out political dissent, especially in Hollywood. As vice president of the Motion Picture Association, Disney wrote a letter to U.S. Sen. Robert Reynolds (D-NC) urging Congress to investigate “the flagrant manner in which the motion picture industrialists have been coddling Communists.” (March 7, 1944) When Congress investigated Hollywood in the late 1940s, Disney acted as a “friendly witness,” testifying before the House Un-American Activities Committee in an anti-Communist offensive that led to the Hollywood Blacklist. Accusations of having Communist ties or sympathies were used to deny employment to many entertainment professionals through the late 1950s. Disney ratted out artists in his own industry, including his animators. HUAC was created in 1938 to investigate all “subversives,” including Nazis who, especially during World War II, were considered traitors. But its members soon focused their attacks on Communists and even on members of the Franklin Roosevelt administration who opposed the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis during the war. Disney had no qualms throwing his peers into the flames stoked by the hunt for Communists. PostscriptWorkers in the Disney Kingdom are still fighting the forces of corporate greed, fascism and exploitation today. Only by understanding the history of the workers’ struggle will they be able to win future victories.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Flu hits 5 to 24-year-olds hard

Linkedin Taylor Freetagehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/taylor-freetage/ Taylor Freetagehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/taylor-freetage/ Taylor Freetagehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/taylor-freetage/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Website| + posts printThe months of January and February are commonly known as “flu season,” and based on the the percentage of sick students on campus, these months have lived up to their name. According to statistics from the Tarrant County Health Department, this year’s flu has been particularly hard on five through 24-year-olds. “Although TCU does not report flu statistic specific to campus, the campus does participate in the Flu surveillance project with Tarrant County and the State of Texas,” said Kelle Tillman, associate director of the Brown Lupton Health Center.Flu season typically starts in October and peaks in February, a time when the semester starts to pick up and healthy habits become scarce. “Midterms are stressful for a lot of people and as a college student it’s hard to balance tests and projects with getting enough sleep and taking care of yourself,” said Junior writing major, Mason Ledonne. According to Tarrant County Public Health, the first week of February showed a spike in reported influenza-like illnesses from 3.59 percent to 5.02 percent, which is higher than the Tarrant county baseline of 3.89 percent.The following week (Feb. 4. through Feb. 11.) increased to 5.47  percent, especially for those between the ages of five and 24.According to the graph from the Tarrant County Division of Epidemiology and Health information, the Texas state line for influenza like illnesses is 7 percent, making the second week in February the closest it’s been to the state baseline this year.Tillman said that although there has been an increase in influenza like illnesses on campus, there is not a specific percentage of students who have reported missing class due to the sickness.While sickness has been spreading on campus, so has a rumor about a class cancellation policy if too many students get sick at one time. Tillman said the rumor around campus that classes will be cancelled for 48 hours if 20 percent of students get sick is not true, and that TCU does not have a policy regarding the issue. “If a significant number of the student population is sick, we would consult with the Tarrant County Health Department and follow their advice and directions regarding any communicable diseases,” said Tillman. Although there is no one reason that causes the flu, Tillman said students should be doing all they can to be preventative by getting vaccinated against the flu, getting plenty of rest, practicing good hand washing, and not drinking out of shared containers.The TCU Health Center offers free flu shots that are available to all students until June 1.

Duke scores Pennsylvania first with IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car crown

first_img“A lot of the races we ran have ‘B’ mains and a lot of guys don’t qualify for the feature,” said Duke, not­ing the series averaged better than 28 cars a night over the course of its 2019 run. “I think the competition in Pennsylvania is about as good as it gets.” He won that series crown for the second time in four years while earning his career-first E3 Spark Plugs Pennsylvania State title. Starts       34            Wins           10         Additional Top Five’s             12 HIS CREW: Parents Ken Sr. and Sandy Duke, Brian Snyder, Mark Hackett, Darrell Troxell and girlfriend Donna Reigle. “We’ve been in the top 20 every year we’ve raced IMCA. Up until this year, I didn’t know if a na­tional championship was feasible,” said Duke. “We went after it 100 percent and got it done.” Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove became the first driver from Pennsylvania to win a national champion­ship in any sanctioned division, topping standings for the winged class in his fifth IMCA season. Now in his 24th season on the track, Duke raced go-karts and then microsprints before making his home in the RaceSaver class. Duke collected 10 feature victories in all, eight of them in Pennsylvania Sprint Series action. “Knowing how the national point deal worked, we wanted to finish in the top three 20 times,” said Duke. “We went to PRI in December to figure out how to get better, prepared accordingly and got a great start, winning our first two and three out of our first four races.” Duke and Colorado pilot Jake Bubak shared the division lead in feature wins. Duke had another 13 top-five finishes. Two of his three checkered flag runs at Clinton County Motor Speedway came in Laurel High­lands Sprint Series outings. Duke also collected two wins each at hometown Selinsgrove Speed­way, Path Valley Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, and won once at BAPS Motor Speedway. “It’s kind of unbelievable. It’s an honor for sure, with as much racing as goes on and with how many dirt tracks we have here,” he said. “Winning the national championship hasn’t sunk in yet. Maybe it will when we get out to the banquet. I know what we’ve done and how hard we worked, but it’s still a little hard to believe. It’s pretty amazing.” HIS SPONSORS: Fairfield Chevrolet and Susquehanna Valley Auto Glass, both of Lewisburg; Bud Godek Auto Body, Apache Tree Service and Tom Tice Powder Coating, all of Middleburg; SprintCarUnlimited.com; Fred Keller; and Seth’s Racing Engines, Beaver Springs. “Winning at Selinsgrove was the highlight of the season,” he said. “That’s where I was born and raised. I’d never won there before, but I won two of the four races there this year.” The first Pennsylvania driver to win an IMCA national championship, Ken Duke Jr. ruled the RaceSaver Sprint Car standings in 2019.

(Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photography) SELINSGROVE, Pa. – A Duke was king of the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car division this season. Duke has been about as consistent as a driver can get, finishing in the top 20 nationally in each of his five IMCA campaigns. Eighth last season, he took over the point lead for good in late July and was one of seven Keystone State speedsters in this year’s top 20.last_img read more
