World Rugby Sevens Series schedule announced for 2021

first_img The World Rugby Sevens Series returns for a shortened 2021 season (Getty Images) The 2021 series is shortened due to the pandemic, late start and the Olympics. New Zealand are the reigning champions in both tournaments after a premature ending to the 2019-20 series. The men’s series played six of ten scheduled fixtures, while the women’s series managed to fulfil five of eight rounds.World Rugby Interim Chief Executive Alan Gilpin said: “Today’s announcement of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2021 schedule marks a significant moment for rugby sevens. We thank HSBC and all Series partners for their unwavering support. We also thank host organisations and participating unions for their hard work, patience and spirit of collaboration.“The continued success of the Sevens Series is a strategic priority for World Rugby. This unique Olympic year provides a huge opportunity to reach new audiences around the world. We hope to introduce them to the speed, skill and excitement of rugby sevens.“Above all, the health, safety and wellbeing of players, fans and the wider community remains our top priority. All stakeholders will continue to closely monitor global developments with the COVID-19 pandemic. We will work closely with host governments and health agencies to ensure a safe and secure return to the series.” Can’t get to the shops?

This will maintain safety for players and officials amid the pandemic, while still showcasing sevens rugby.There are five rounds in the women’s series, and four confirmed rounds in the men’s. This is subject to change though, with discussions for London and Vancouver to host the series ongoing. World Rugby suggests these rounds will commence after the Olympic games and before the first scheduled round in Singapore.Hong Kong, Dubai and Cape Town will all host joint men’s and women’s events of the series for the three final rounds.Kicking off their campaign in Paris with back to back rounds on May 15 – 16 and May 22 – 23, the women’s series will then have to wait until November 5 – 7 in Hong Kong before recommencing fixtures. However, the Tokyo Olympics interrupts the break in late July, as teams prepare for the summer tournament with a joint women’s and men’s event in Los Angeles over the weekend of June 25 – 27.Currently, the men’s first round of the series is due for October 29 – 30 in Singapore, although that is likely to change if London and Vancouver are added to the schedule.The series heads to Dubai for December 3 – 4 for the penultimate stage of the season. Cape Town will then host the final round of both the men’s and women’s series, on 10-12 December.Japan’s success in the 2020 Challenger Series sees them join the 16 core teams for the 2021 men’s series. Additionally, England, Scotland and Wales will all combine to create a GB Sevens team in both the men’s and women’s series in this Olympic year. Therefore, the men’s series will invite two additional teams in order to maintain the 16-team tournament. However, the women’s series won’t invite anymore nations as Wales and Scotland aren’t part of the 11 core teams.last_img read more

Saving Hope

first_imgFacebook TCU’s diversity falls middle of the road compared to peer institutions Linkedin TCU Office of Admission to add new programs to attract and keep diversity printHope’s eye shifted from person-to-person as doctors reconstructed her face.Although under sedation, she flinched as screws were drilled into her gaping facial wound to connect sutures in what was her fifth surgery.Poachers attacked Hope, cutting the rhinoceros’s horn from her face, leaving her nasal cavities open. Veterinarians saved her life.In this July 2015 photo provided by Michael Slattery, doctors place a cover over Hope’s facial wound. Hope was attacked by poachers for her horn.Hope’s fifth surgery, just one of the attempts to rebuild her face, was done in July as 15 TCU students watched.“I took the pulse of a dehorned rhino,” Wildlife Society President Sharra Blair-Kucera said in an email. “I watched a baby rhino play and then run and hide behind it’s dehorned mother.”The students traveled to the Amakhala Game Reserve in South Africa to see the effects of rhino poaching. They returned to the states determined to bolster the Rhino Initiative, a partnership between the game reserve and TCU.Michael Slattery, the director of the Institute for Environmental Studies, used a $25,000 grant through TCU’s Global Innovators Initiative which is part of TCU’s Discovering Global Citizenship program to start the conservation project.“I knew I wanted to do something in South Africa and take students back to my home country,” Slattery said. “I knew wildlife trafficking was a huge problem globally, and I wanted someone who was working on the ground on wildlife issues.”In this July 2015 photo provided by Michael Slattery, Hope the rhino focuses on the camera during a surgery to reconstruct her face. This was Hope’s fifth surgery.Through a friend of his brother, Slattery found Dr. William Fowlds, a wildlife veterinarian, who would become TCU’s main contact in South Africa for the Rhino Initiative.Fowlds visited the campus in April 2014. He gave lectures and worked with students to create a multifaceted response plan to the rhino crisis.“We lose more than three rhinos a day in [South Africa] that we know about,” Fowlds said in a Skype interview. “Animals like Hope are not even counted in the statistics because they survive.”The Trip“Traveling to South Africa was a way for students to truly understand wildlife management in a geopolitical context,” Slattery said.They visited Fowlds in South Africa and watched as he and his team cared for rhinos and wildebeests.“The students were blown away,” James English, a co-chair of the Global Innovators Initiative, said. “It’s very hands-on. It’s not theoretical at all.”The procedure on Hope was the epitome of real.“That one was hard to watch,” said Sidney Dennis, a junior communication studies major. “Her eyes were open and being able to watch her eye move around and focus on other people was really interesting because you really saw the animal, like you saw she was actually there.”Video Playerhttp://www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/090915_RT_StudentReactions_VX-26183_lowres.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundDownload File: https://www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/090915_RT_StudentReactions_VX-26183_lowres.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.“When poachers attacked Hope, they hacked off her horn, and took with it a significant portion of her face, sinuses and skull,” Haley King, a political science major who graduated in May, wrote on the TCU Global blog.Fowlds said he and his team had trouble finding anchor points for a cover because so much bone was gone.“While the TCU students were with us, we got halfway through the procedure and decided that attempt was not going to work, so we actually had to scrap that mask and try something else,” Fowlds said.They sutured elephant hide, which is flexible, to her face. However, it only lasted two and a half weeks.“We were looking for something that could sort of give when she tried to rub, because it must be extremely itchy for her,” Fowlds said. “We still haven’t come up with a solution.”Video Playerhttp://www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/091515_RT_RhinoAudioSlideshowFINAL_VX-25941_lowres.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundDownload File: https://www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/091515_RT_RhinoAudioSlideshowFINAL_VX-25941_lowres.mp4?_=200:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Fowlds added that with every failure, he and his team learn how to treat injured rhinos in the future.“The sad reality is she won’t be the last one we have to deal with,” Fowlds said. “There will be more like her.”TCU’s Plan of ActionWhile Hope recovers in South Africa, TCU students are attacking the rhino problem on five fronts: rescue, protection, demand reduction, community development and cyberconservation.Students meet once a week in a follow-up class to create TCU’s response to the rhino crisis.“In that class we’re going to be working on maybe one or two other grants to provide other funding for them,” Dennis said. “We’re also working on some videos to show the greater TCU community.”A main focus of the Rhino Initiative is to create a website, an insight into conservation activities and issues, Slattery said.“It might show things like rhino procedures being done in real time,” English said.TCU has also donated a drone that is used for checking up on rhinos during the day, as well as for tracking rhinos that have already been darted before a medical procedure, Slattery said.“Once you dart an animal you’ve got to make sure you know where it goes, because if it runs off into the bush and you don’t reach it within a certain time frame, it’ll die from the drugs,” Slattery said.Students are also looking for ways to reduce demand for rhino horn, specifically in Vietnam and China. A belief that rhino horn can cure medical ailments, as well as the high price for the horn, drives the poaching.Spreading HopeDespite the rhino’s population decreasing, Fowlds said he is hopeful.“There is this degree of helplessness and despondency that has been creeping into South Africans because we’ve been throwing everything we can at it for four years and the crisis just gets deeper,” Fowlds said. “So to have a project like what TCU has committed to on our side with the potential for it to grow for us is extremely motivating.”Fowlds said the energy and concern the Fort Worth community is showing in the rhino project is invoking new hope in the fight for the rhino.“I don’t want TCU to underestimate the impact that it will have,” Fowlds said. “It’s just this energizing effect that they are already having on our community.”It’s an energy that can save other rhinos like Hope.“She’s doing well; she’s eating well,” Fowlds said. “She’s an amazing animal.” Is TCU’s firework obsession because of Boschini? ‘It doesn’t hurt.’ ReddIt TCU Values and Ventures competition grows to largest in school history Rachel Tiedehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/rachel-tiede/ Return of the disco: Latest fashion trends mirror the 1970s Rachel Tiedehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/rachel-tiede/ Sustainability is the new green: Fashion companies work towards environmentally-conscious practices Linkedin Rachel Tiedehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/rachel-tiede/center_img Rachel Tiedehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/rachel-tiede/ Website| + posts ReddIt Previous articleMike Freeze attends tryout for junior college baseball teamNext articleThe Boykin-Doctson connection continues to thrive Rachel Tiede RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Rachel is a senior multimedia reporter for TCU360.com.

Mayor awards City of Paris medals to four journalists

first_img 2016 World Press Freedom Index ­– leaders paranoid about journalists to go further Help by sharing this information News May 2, 2016 Find out more International coalition urges UN to appoint “journalists’ protector” The mayor presented the medals at an evening event entitled Les Combats du Journalisme (Journalism’s Front Lines) that RSF organized at the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris to pay tribute to “information heroes.”“We welcome the Paris city hall’s official commitment to these information heroes,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The medals are much more than just symbols. They really help these men and women, who often risk their lives or their freedom to inform their fellow citizens and who are an example for fellow journalists worldwide.”The medals were awarded to:Can Dündar, the editor of the secular and progressive Turkish daily Cumhuriyet. He is also a documentary filmmaker and the author of bestselling books. Dündar and his Ankara bureau chief, Erdem Gül, are charged with spying and divulging state secrets because they published information about arms deliveries by the Turkish intelligence services to Islamists in Syria. Thanks to a major international campaign, he was released in late February but he is now being tried.Antoine Kaburahe, the editor of the privately-owned weekly Iwacu, the last private media outlet to operate in Burundi after radio stations were closed down on President Pierre Nkurunziza’s orders. He fled to Belgium, where he now lives, because of concern for his safety since the May 2015 coup attempt, when the authorities refused to distinguish between coup supporters and journalists who continued to cover political developments.Narges Mohammadi, an Iranian journalist who worked closely with 2003 Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi and acted as spokesperson of the Centre for Human Rights Defenders. Iran is the world’s biggest prison for women journalists and Mohammadi is serving a six-year sentence. Her health is in danger because she is being denied the medical care she needs. In October 2015, she was taken to a Tehran hospital, where she was handcuffed to her bed. She was sent back to prison ten days later against the advice of her doctors.Lotfullah Najafizadeh, the head of Kabul-based Tolo TV, which was awarded the RSF Press Freedom Prize in 2005 and was the target of a Taliban suicide attack in January 2016, a few months after the Taliban declared it to be a “military target.” With 100 employees, Tolo TV is one of the few reliable sources of news and information in Afghanistan.Afghanistan, Turkey, Burundi and Iran are ranked 120th, 151st, 156th and 169th respectively in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Allahabad HC Seeks Report On Treatment Given To Sitting High Court Judge VK Srivastava Who Succumbed To Covid-19 Last Week

first_imgNews UpdatesAllahabad HC Seeks Report On Treatment Given To Sitting High Court Judge VK Srivastava Who Succumbed To Covid-19 Last Week Akshita Saxena4 May 2021 10:29 AMShare This – xThe Allahabad High Court on Tuesday sought response from the State health authorities about the treatment that was given to Justice VirendraKumar Srivastava, a sitting Judge of the High Court, who succumbed to COVID-19 virus last week. A Division Bench comprising of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar directed Additional Advocate General Manish Goyal to file an affidavit bringing on record the treatment given to late Justice Srivastava, at the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in Lucknow, where he was initially admitted. Sitting Judge Of Allahabad High Court Justice Virendra Kumar Srivastava Succumbs To Covid-19 The direction was made after the Bench was informed that various private hospitals and even in Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, Lucknow the patients who were being admitted were not taken good care of. It was further told that even Justice Srivastava was not taken care of until evening, and it was only when his condition deteriorated, he was placed on ventilator. The same night, he was shifted to Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, where he was in ICU for five days and ultimately succumbed to the Covid- 19 infection. In this backdrop, the Bench ordered, “Sri Manish Goyal is directed to file an affidavit bringing on record the treatment given to late Justice V.K. Srivastava at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and it will also be explained why he was not taken immediately to Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, immediately in the morning on 23rd April, 2021.” That apart, the Bench has taken note of misleading information shown on the online portal created by the Government for information on vacant positions of beds. It noted that even though there are no beds in the L-2 and L-3 hospitals, the portal show vacancies and it is only upon calling up these hospitals, it is known that the information on the portal is not updated. “This state of affaires that we have come to know about the management of online portal created by the Government today casts shadow upon the Covid Hospital Management moreso, in the face of the fact that the Government althrough had been claiming that there were sufficient beds in various hospitals and even in the last affidavit, they showed that there were about 17614 isolation beds and 5510 ICU/ SDU beds in the various private hospitals in the State and there was no scarcity,” the Court sternly remarked.
