The Exiles only had an Adam Coleman try in the second half to show they had anything to throw back at Bath.But while a lot has changed since the pandemic hit, there has not been a huge gulf between the pair when the Premiership ground to a halt.Just two points separate Bath in sixth, on 30 points, and Irish in eighth, on 28. Each side took heavy losses in their last outings – Bath lost 57-20 to Chiefs and Irish lost 39-0 to Sale – and while both teams have won three and lost three in their last six games, Irish earned 16 points from those while Bath only had 13.However, we have had an unprecedented break and plenty of personnel swaps, so form could well be irrelevant.In recent days Bath promoted former London Irish hero Neal Hatley to the role of head coach. Bath have also signed scrum-half Ben Spencer from Saracens and no-nonsense lock Will Spencer. But gone are Rhys Webb, Freddie Burns, Francois Louw and Tom Homer, with the full-back returning to Irish.The Exiles have also added a huge number of international caps to their ranks, with former Argentina skipper Agustin Creevy joining up, alongside 100-cap Wallabies lock Rob Simmons. With Ireland back-rower Sean O’Brien also raring to get torn in for London Irish, they will be optimistic of a reversal of last year’s festive flop.Bath: Anthony Watson; Samesa Rokoduguni, Jonathan Joseph, Josh Matavesi, Ruaridh McConnochie; Rhys Priestland, Ben Spencer; Lewis Boyce, Tom Dunn, Will Stuart, Josh McNally, Charlie Ewels (captain), Zach Mercer, Sam Underhill, Taulupe Faletau.Replacements: Jack Walker, Beno Obano, Christian Judge, Elliott Stooke, Josh Bayliss, Will Chudley, Cmeron Redpath, Tom De GlanvilleLondon Irish: Tom Parton; Ben Loader, Curtis Rona, Terrence Hepetema, Ollie Hassell-Collins; Paddy Jackson, Nick Phipps, Harry Elrington, Motu Matu’u, Sekope Kepu, Ben Donnell, George Nott, Matt Rogerson, Seán O’Brien (captain), Albert Tuisue.Replacements: Matt Cornish, Will Goodrick-Clarke, Ollie Hoskins, Sebastian de Chaves, Blair Cowan, Ben Meehan, Theo Brophy Clews, Matt Williams.Below we explain how to find a reliable live stream for Bath v London Irish wherever you are.How to watch Bath v London Irish from outside your countryIf you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, like Bath v London Irish, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Premiership live stream you would at home.Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.last_img read more

Although “the information you would need is actually all there… it’s ever so boring.”The review wasn’t entirely accurate, stating for example that the home page has no images. Still, it is interesting to see the increasing levels of expectations of major charities’ Web sites from industry commentators. The true test, of course, is meeting or exceeding the expectations of online supporters or visitors.By contrast, the Tate Galleries received four out of five stars from Net Profit magazine, which described it as “a highly professional and visually pleasing site for the London, Liverpool and St Ives-based Tate galleries.” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Bahrain Racing in Circles

first_img—–CPJ is an independent, nonprofit organization that works to safeguard press freedom worldwide.Reporters Without Borders promotes and defends the freedom to be informed and to inform others throughout the world Press freedom campaign launch timed to Formula One race in BahrainNew York and Paris, April 3, 2014—The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) have launched a joint social media campaign calling on the Bahraini government to allow journalists to work freely during the Formula One Grand Prix race in Bahrain on April 6, 2014. Using the social media tool Thunderclap, the “Bahrain Racing in Circles” campaign participants will call for press freedom in Bahrain at the exact start of the Formula One race. As of April 2, the campaign had gained a potential audience of 2.6 million people, twice the population of Bahrain.“It’s clear that it’s not only F1 cars that are racing circles in Bahrain, as we see the same cycle of protests, repression, and censorship every year,” said CPJ Middle East and North Africa Program Coordinator Sherif Mansour. “Every year, the Bahraini government hopes the roar of Formula One cars will drown out criticism of the regime’s human rights violations,” said Soazig Dollet, head of RSF’s Middle East and North Africa desk. “This year, we’re calling on everyone to join our F1 campaign to make sure that does not happen.” CPJ and RSF have documented a consistent attempt by the Bahraini government to censor the press since the launch of a mass protest movement on February 14, 2011. Most recently, on March 26, freelance photographer Ahmed Humaidan was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment on charges of attacking a police station in 2012. Humaidan was at the station to document the incident as part of his coverage of unrest in the country.

Political police try to blackmail dissident journalist

The policemen warned me that, if I continue to write, the next time she will be refused entry into Cuba.”González said he would not give into their blackmail “even if the price I must pay is not seeing my family again.” He could therefore he summoned for further questioning at any moment. “I just describe today’s Cuban reality and the regime cannot stand that,” he added.Three of the 21 journalists who have been in prison since the March 2003 crackdown are members of the Grupo de Trabajo Decoro news agency. The three are Héctor Maseda Gutiérrez (serving a 20-year prison sentence), Omar Moisés Ruiz Hernández (18 years) and José Ubaldo Izquierdo Hernández (16 years). to go further When interrogated by the political police in Havana on 24 March, Oscar Mario González was told that, if he does not stop working as an independent journalist, he may never again see his family members who live in exile.

Government imposes censorship and self-censorship on religious issues

first_img Record fine for Malaysian news site over readers’ comments News News Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again Organisation March 9, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government imposes censorship and self-censorship on religious issues MalaysiaAsia – Pacific RSF_en Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders condemns the censorship and self-censorship which the home affairs ministry has imposed on Malaysia’s leading English-language daily, The Star, by issuing it with a warning about an article criticising the caning of three Muslim women under Sharia law.“As one of the country’s most widely-read newspapers, The Star should have a free hand to provide its readers with the broadest range of news and views on social issues,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge Prime Minister Najib Razak to reconsider this decision and to quickly amend the 1984 Publishing and Printing Presses Act, whose licence renewal system denies newspapers the security they need.”In response to the pressure from the government and Muslim groups, the newspaper was forced to publish an apology and withdraw the offending article from its website (www.thestar.com.my). Written by managing editor P. Gunasegaram and published in the paper on 19 February, the article, entitled “Persuasion, not compulsion,” said the sentence of caning passed on 9 February on three Muslim women accused of adultery was disproportionate. It was the first time in years that a Malaysian court has issued such a sentence.After receiving the home affairs ministry’s warning letter, the newspaper refused to publish an article by one of the newspapers contributing columnists, Marina Mahathir , in which she argued that Sharia laws were written by men, not God, and as such were open to debate. She finally posted the column on her blog (http://rantingsbymm.blogspot.com/). Urging the media to do their duty as a “fourth estate,” the Centre for Independent Journalism (www.cijmalaysia.org), a Malaysian NGO, noted that, “When censored content surfaces online, it only entrenches the public’s impression that the mainstream media are less reliable than their online counterparts.”The Publishing and Printing Presses Act, which covers books and foreign publications as well as Malaysian newspapers, provides the government with a powerful array of legal instruments for enforcing its will, above all the ability to grant and revoke publishing permits.Copies of two books published by Malaysiakini.com, “Where is Justice?” and “1 Funny Malaysia,” were recently confiscated in two states. They contained cartoons by Zulkiflee Anwar Haque, a cartoonist better known as Zunar, whose magazine was banned last year. A book by a foreign journalist about a former prime minister, “Malaysian Maverick: Mahathir Mohamad in Turbulent Times,” has also been banned in Malaysia.On the other hand, in January a court authorised the sale of a book published by the organisation Sisters in Islam which had previously been banned by the government.These acts of censorship come amid continuing tension about the Malaysian Catholic weekly The Herald’s use of the word “Allah” to refer to the Christian God in its Malay-language publications. The office of the newspaper’s lawyers was broken into and ransacked on 14 February. After banning Christian publications from using the word, the government is now reportedly ready to permit it in certain states.Malaysia is ranked 131th out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. to go furthercenter_img MalaysiaAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Malaysia March 17, 2021 Find out more News New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth February 22, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information January 29, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
