Match verdict: Ireland 22-24 New Zealand

first_imgLate show: Ryan Crotty goes over for the last-minute try that condemned Ireland to defeatBy Sarah Mockford at Aviva StadiumIn a nutshellWhat a difference a week makes. Last Saturday Ireland were lambasted for their dire showing against Australia. Today they came within 30 seconds of their first-ever win over the All Blacks.It was clear from the anthems that Ireland were fired up for this match. Peter O’Mahony, for one, looked to be holding back the tears. Perhaps the previous week’s display had been a ploy to lull New Zealand into a feeling of complacency. It certainly worked. Ireland had scored three tries – through Conor Murray, Rory Best and Rob Kearney – and were 19-0 up after just 20 minutes.Rapid Rob: Kearney scores Ireland’s third tryThey played at such pace with and without the ball that they caught New Zealand on the back foot when in attack and didn’t allow the visitors to get any rhythm to their game when they were in possession.Julian Savea pulled a try back for New Zealand, collecting an Aaron Cruden grubber and picking a great line to score, and Ben Franks barrelled over with 15 minutes to go. Ireland then seemed to regather control and looked set for a historic win. However, Johnny Sexton missed with a penalty that would have meant New Zealand needed to score more than a converted try. Then came the sucker punch: a Ryan Crotty try brought the scores level and Cruden converted at the second attempt to ensure it was the All Blacks, not Ireland, who entered the record books as the first team in the pro ere to win all of their Tests in a calendar year.Much will be made of Ireland’s heroic performance, the passion and commitment they brought to the game, but it also must be said that having built such a lead they should have closed out the win. Whether that is a question of tactics or mentality is something Joe Schmidt will have to answer before the Six Nations.Key momentThe penalty awarded to New Zealand in the final minute. There were less than 30 seconds left on the clock so they had to take a quick tap but showed great patience to take play from their own half to Ireland’s 22. From there they stretched Ireland left and right before Aaron Cruden passed wide to Dane Coles, who in turn fed Ryan Crotty and the replacement went over. The TMO ruled that the try was good and the scores were level. Up stepped Cruden to take the conversion from out wide. He missed but was allowed to retake it as Ireland’s defenders had charged up too quickly. There was no mistake the second time and it was New Zealand who were celebrating victory. On the ball: Paul O’Connell is wrapped up by NZStar man – Paul O’ConnellIt’s hard to pick one standout performer but the Ireland captain was at his warrior-like best in Dublin. He led the forward effort with aplomb, powering into defenders whenever called upon to carry, tackling hard in a ferocious defensive performance, making his considerable presence felt at the breakdown and calling many a lineout to himself as Ireland got their mauling game going. In one word: immense.StatsNew Zealand made 554 metres with the ball compared to Ireland’s 261 and beat 19 defenders to the hosts’ 12.Ireland made 183 tackles to New Zealand’s 138, with Jamie Heaslip (25) and Sean O’Brien (19) top of the charts.Ben Smith was New Zealand’s top metre maker with 108.Scorers LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Ireland – Tries: Murray, Best, R Kearney Cons: Sexton 2 Pen: SextonNew Zealand – Tries: Savea, B Franks, Crotty Cons: Cruden 3 Pen: Crudenlast_img read more

Torture hoods used in U.S. prisons

first_imgAsphyxia: (1) stopping of the pulse (2) lack of oxygen, (3) excess carbon dioxide in the body that results in unconsciousness and death, (4) caused by interruption of breathing or inadequate oxygen supply.Revolutionary greetings to all the workers worldwide! The above definitions describe a condition that too often occurs in U.S. torture sites (prisons/slave plantations) across the nation when human beings are suffocated by what is commonly called “spit mask” by torturecrats (prison officials).Even though the United States allows domestic torture centers inside its borders of 50 states and U.S. territories, this is somehow conspiratorially blocked out of U.S. corporate media outlets — newspapers and especially television.For most of the public, everyday working-class people have never heard of such a thing as a “spit mask,” never alone even seen one in their lifetime.Here, for what is probably most likely the first viewing for many, is a photo of the white spit mask as displayed by a torturecrat.The white square cloth division of the mask covering the lower nostril holes causes one to suffocate.The black knitted thread division of the mask (at the top of the face and head) is used for masking prisoners. It is pulled back with the torturecrat’s palms flat down on it in such a fashion that the white cloth part is fully blocking the prisoner’s entire face. This allows the torturer to control air flow. In some cases this is used while prisoners are in the torture chair and in other cases while they are shackled and belted in full body restraints.It is not uncommon for vomiting, epileptic seizures, panic attacks and anxiety attacks to happen to the prisoner. When Tased or beaten, no prisoner is able to identity the torturers because viewing is obstructed by the mask.The combination of the torture chair with the torture hood means many have suffered from pulmonary embolisms, and some died from blood clots caused by trauma, followed by the immobility in the torture chair. (Prison Legal News, Oct. 14, 2016)In other cases nationwide, the white mask serves as a torture hood and creates “positional asphyxia” — the restriction of airflow during breathing causing suffocation.In spite of many deaths across the U.S., there is a media block-out. There is also the complicity of lawyers who never protect the victims, despite their knowledge of systematic abuses across the spectrum. The tortured include minorities, LGBTQ individuals, people with physical and mental disabilities, and all races and religions and atheists.The reason professional lawyer groups are silent is because prison plantation cases are not profitable since the Prison Litigation Reform Act (signed into law under ex-president William Jefferson Clinton) put a cap on attorneys’ representing prisoners for financial rewards. This act also made it more difficult for prisoners because they must first establish physical injury before any psychological injury can be compensated.This article does not intend to make a complete generalization that includes the National Lawyers Guild and other peoples’ lawyers groups and individuals in private practice, but for the most part applies to the American Bar Association and definitely law schools. Lawyers in Pennsylvania particularly are the absolute worst nationwide, including Pennsylvania members of the National Lawyers Guild.One of the most horrendous deaths imaginable, choking to death while gasping to live, brings to mind how Eric Garner was choked to death by torturecrats. There were and still are protests as remembrance; often there are text hashtags, and demonstrations with signs “I can’t breathe” have been national news.This writer has yet to ever see or hear one corporate news story about being choked to death in U.S. prisons — from Office of Corrections chemical munitions to the torture hood causing asphyxias.Alleged terrorist suspects were hooded and brought to Guantanamo Bay and other torture sites, so the U.S. operates torture worldwide, as reported in international news about “extraordinary rendition.” All kinds of lawyers, civil rights groups and human rights organizations have petitioned all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court about U.S. detention and torture injustice.Inside the U.S., Black people in prisons who are the majority in local, state and federal concentration camps — neo-slave plantations — die daily of asphyxia and other state-sponsored deaths.I write to remind the movement globally that the U.S. and its states did not stop unjust executions after Julius and Ethel Rosenberg [1], did not stop sadistic torture with Albizu Campos [2], did not stop assassination with George Jackson at San Quentin prison. Dr. Mumia Abu-Jamal is still under a state-sponsored death-by-incarceration sentence. Sandra Bland was made dead before her day before any court. Of course, Black Lives Matter now, but do Black Lives Matter in prison? For that matter do any lives matter in prison?So with this article and your viewing of yet another torture device, I ask workers and readers to ponder what asphyxia is like and when does this all end — the senseless wars, the greedy wage exploitation of labor, the daily killings, the endless torture and the perpetual slavery? Or is humanity just in a doomed cycle of death by asphyxia?[1] The Rosenbergs were falsely convicted and executed by the U.S. government for allegedly “stealing” atom bomb secrets.[2] Albizu Campos was a leader of the Puerto Rican independence movement who was tortured during imprisonment for 26 years and died shortly after being released.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fannie Mae: Housing Sentiment Flip Flops

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Mounting concerns over supply and affordability are driving down consumers’ home purchase decisions, according to the latest Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI).The index dropped 0.5 points in June after reaching its survey high of 91.5 in May, the data indicated. This, despite an eight-percentage-point spike in consumer expectation of lower mortgage rates.“Growing expectations that mortgage rates will remain steady suggest improved stability for housing affordability and helped keep the HPSI relatively flat this month, despite modest declines in other components,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and Chief Economist at Fannie Mae.The HPSI for June indicated a four-percentage-point drop to 23% in consumer sentiment on “Good Time to Buy.” Despite these dips, the overall HPSI remained slightly above (0.8 points) last year’s June data.The net share of those who said that now was a good time to sell remained unchanged at 43%, though this was four-percentage-points down compared to last year.Consumer sentiment relating to home prices was also down eight-percentage-points compared to last year and decreased three-percentage-points month-over-month to 38%.According to Duncan, the June home purchase sentiment was also driven by regional housing trends. “Regional variations in housing optimism appear to be tied to a divergence in housing affordability; for example, home purchase sentiment is higher in the Midwest and South than in the West and, to a lesser extent, the Northeast, where the lack of entry-level inventory and the resultant strong price appreciation has had a more profound impact on affordability,” he noted. “With fewer consumers expecting rates to jump back up–thereby creating less urgency to buy now–we expect housing market activity to remain stable.”Looking at wider economic indicators that typically impact housing, the HPSI data indicated that the share of Americans who said they were not concerned about losing their job decreased three-percentage-points to 73%. This component is down three-percentage-points from last year. Similarly, the share of those who said that their household income was significantly higher compared to last year dipped a percentage point to 20%, month-over-month.

The wording of the legal issue will be decided later, and Deputy Pringle and his legal team say the determination of that legal question could have an impact on the effect and operation of the ESM treaty.Mr Pringle’s application for a declaration that any purported ratification of the ESM treaty is invalid has been adjourned pending the CJEU ruling, while the Government has agreed not to ratify the treaty pending the Supreme Court appeal.Ms Justice Mary Laffoy refused to grant an injunction restraining the Government from ratifying the treaty pending the CJEU decision, on grounds including that it was “impossible to predict the fallout” from such a restraint except to say it would probably be “extremely detrimental” to Ireland and the other members of the ESM.
