PJ Powers and Ladysmith Black Mambazo produced a version in 1995. In 1999 Shirley Bassey and Bryn Terfel put their spin on things, Hayley Westenra recorded one in 2011 and in 2015 Paloma Faith sang a version that was used on ITV’s coverage of the Rugby World Cup.The Faith number was not well received and during that tournament a petition to replace the singer’s version received over 10,000 signatures.For the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the official song was recorded by Japanese singer Kiyoe Yoshioka. Also, in the UK, a specially-recorded version by Emeli Sande will be used as ITV’s theme music for coverage of the event. History Of The Rugby World Cup Anthem World In UnionThe anthem World in Union was first heard at the 1991 Rugby World Cup, held in England. In this first instance it was performed by New Zealand soprano Kiri Te Kanawa.The melody used is known as Thaxted – it is taken from the central section of Jupiter, a movement from Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite The Planets, but is probably best known for it’s use in the hymn I Vow To Thee My Country. In 1991 composer and lyricist Charlie Skarbek was commissioned by World Rugby (then the International Rugby Football Board (IRFB)) to produce an anthem that encapsulated the spirit and values of the game.Skarbek’s lyrics for the song are: Who Are ITV’s Rugby World Cup Pundits?

The buildings in the higher part of the plot are elevated on slender columns in order to „catch the sun“ and leave the walls of historical vaults undisturbed. Meanwhile the buildings down the slope are lowered and provided with the yards on the creek bank.The houses are clad in wooden planks of different textures.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajStructure8 ELEVATED houses are designed along the street in the southern part of the plot. These buildings are set between the retaining walls of the ammunition vaults or placed above their cornices. These buildings are paired around outside staircases. The houses are elevated to ensure the free access to the historical vaults and their visibility from the street. The pairs of houses correspond to the pairs of entrances to the vaults. These houses have regular plans, traditional pitched roofs and are rotated according to the orientation of the vaults‘ facades.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajThe northern side of the street is shaped by the intermittent perimeter of LOWERED houses. 10 separate buildings with regular plans and pitched roofs connect two terraces: the bank of the creek and the street. Due to the difference of terrain they seem to be 1 storey high from the street and two storey high when observed from the lower terrace. Retaining walls between the houses separate the places for cars on the street level and private terraces below.Save this picture!SectionArchitectural HarmonyTraditional archetypical silhouette of the buildings is supplemented by moderate contemporary details and elements. Shapes are lightened by abstract volumes of bay windows and skylights. The complex of houses is harmonized by uniform materialization: buildings are clad in wood planks of several different textures, influenced by local traditions. Homogenous architectural details, scale and color of the buildings enhance the idea of unity even further.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajThe perspective of the street is not obstructed, but rather extending into the valley of Ribiskes landscape reserve.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajProject gallerySee allShow lessMonocle 24 Explores Women in UrbanismArchitecture NewsPensão Agricola / atelier RuaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Vilnius, LithuaniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

As part of the event, Fly the Tyne is auctioning 15 exclusive seats to fly with the pilots and experience the North East from a completely different perspective. Seats are available to the top 15 bidders with all money raised to be donated to Streetwise.Newcastle Air Traffic Control will navigate the 100 microlights (fixed, flexwing and gyrocopters) through their controlled airspace, with each pilot taking off from Eshott Airfield near Morpeth in 30 second intervals. The 110-mile route will take each aircraft west towards Hallington Reservoir, then south towards Chester le Street, before flying low level over the Angel of the North. They will then head towards Newcastle city centre, and fly over the Tyne Bridge and down the River Tyne towards Tynemouth, then back north along the coast to land back at Eshott.Coppin said:“Fly The Tyne made its debut in 2016, which saw 42 microlights take part in a flypass along the River Tyne, this year the event is expected to be even bigger and better with more than double taking to the sky.“The aim of Fly The Tyne is to raise awareness and celebrate the thousands of young people from the North East who have changed their lives with the help of projects like Streetwise.“Many local businesses help support projects like Streetwise, and events like Fly The Tyne aid in shining a spotlight on their support and passion too. Flying with the pilots is a great opportunity to see your business, home and city from the air and really will be a once in a lifetime experience for those involved.”Bidding for the seats starts at £500 and the top 15 pledges will be allocated a seat to fly with the fleet. People can contact [email protected] to request a bidding form with the closing date for all bids Saturday 19 May and the top 15 bidders contacted on Sunday 20 May 2018.

WW photo: Greg ButterfieldSeveral hundred people rallied at One Police Plaza in New York City Aug. 18 to demand justice for Michael Brown and to support the rebellion of youth against police brutality in Ferguson, Mo. The rally also demanded justice for those people of color killed by New York police such as Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham and Kyam Livingston. The protesters then marched to City Hall to protest a call made by Mayor Bill de Blasio for people “not to resist arrest” by the police. The protest was called by the People’s Power Assembly.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the sentences ranging from eight to 12 years in prison which a Tashkent criminal court imposed on five journalists on 26 February for allegedly belonging to a banned Islamic organisation and for producing an independent magazine, Irmok, which was allegedly funded by the organisation.Bakhrom Ibragimov and Davron Kabilov were sentenced to 12 years in prison. Ravshanbek Vafoev got 10 years. Abdulaziz Dadakhonov and Botyrbek Eshkuziev got eight years. They were all convicted under criminal code articles 244.1 and 244.2 of “producing and distributing material whose content threatened public order and security” and “participating in a banned religious, extremist, separatist and fundamentalist organisation.”“The religious beliefs of these five journalists are just a pretext for preventing an independent press from existing in Uzbekistan,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The prosecution produced no evidence. We urge the defence lawyers to appeal against this verdict and we remind the Uzbek authorities that are engaged in a dialogue on human rights with the European Union that is meant to improve the situation.”Human rights activists who attended the trial agreed with the defence that the prosecution failed to produce any evidence against the five journalists and that the case was marked inconsistencies and irregularities.The five journalists are all reportedly members of Nurcular, an Islamic religious movement that is banned in Uzbekistan, Turkey and Russia. The magazine allegedly received financial support from Nurcular.Launched in 2007, Irmok had a print run of 1,500 copies and was enjoying a degree of success until it was closed down in August 2008 for being funded by Nurcular. The government agency for press and information had previously closed down another independent weekly, Odamlar Orasida, on the same grounds in January 2007.Uzbekistan was ranked 162nd out of 173 countries in the 2008 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Independent journalist Jamshid Karimov and two journalists with the opposition newspaper Ekr, Jusuf Ruzimuradov and Mohammed Bekjanov, are also currently detained in Uzbekistan, either in prison or psychiatric hospitals. to go further October 15, 2020 Find out more More than six years in prison for Uzbek blogger who covered corruption UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia News RSF_en Follow the news on Uzbekistan News February 11, 2021 Find out more Uzbek blogger facing possible 10-year jail term Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts March 9, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sentences of 5 to 12 years in prison for five journalists News News May 11, 2021 Find out more New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council Organisation

Twenty-percent of them were being treated in ICUs, and of those, 19% were being treated on ventilators.The state-calculated ICU availability rate for the 11-county region encompassing L.A. County remained at 0%, according to state data.L.A. County Health Services reported 577 total available hospital beds at county hospitals, and 47 ICU beds.As cases related to recent holidays gatherings continue to pour in, “We’re likely to experience the worst conditions in January that we’ve faced the entire pandemic, and that’s hard to imagine,” Ferrer warned.With nearly one in five people who are being tested receiving positive results, “You run the risk of an exposure whenever you leave your home,” according to Ferrer. “Assume that this deadly, invisible virus is everywhere, looking for a willing host. Don’t let that be you or someone you care about.“It’s better to be lonely than to be sick. It’s better to care for others by following the rules than passing along the virus to someone else who may get hospitalized and even die,” she said.At the state level, the California Department of Public Health reported 29,633 new infections and 97 additional deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior seven days was recorded at 13.3%, and the 14-day average was 12.4%, according to a CDPH statement.As of Monday, L.A.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Amtrak passengers were left in the cold on Wednesday night when a mechanical issue caused two train cars to detach, stranding riders on a dark railway ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Amtrak Train 68 was traveling from Montreal to New York City on Wednesday evening when two of its cars, with 287 passengers onboard, separated from the rest of the train, the company said.No injuries were reported.The passengers eventually were transferred to another train to continue their trip, according to Amtrak.“Due to the mechanical issue on Train 68 in Albany (ALB), a recovery engine has been dispatched to transfer passengers from the disabled train. We will update as more information is provided,” the company tweeted at 8:41 p.m., about 90 minutes after the incident.“There were no reported injuries to the 287 passengers or crew. The passengers are being transferred to another train to continue to their destination. We are currently investigating the cause of the car separation,” the company said in a later statement.One passenger said he heard a loud noise right before two cars broke apart, leaving him and other riders stranded on the rails.“It was like an air noise. And I turned around and watched the train rip apart and the train — our train — kept going while the rest of the train was stopping in the back,” Billy Osher-Dugan told ABC Albany affiliate WTEN-TV. “It was crazy. We thought the other train was going to hit us.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
iStock/ilbusca(NEW YORK) — West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice approved a recommendation to fire all the graduates of a West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation training class who appeared to be giving a Nazi salute in a photo.The offensive image, which was printed on state letterhead, showed about 30 trainees in uniform displaying the Nazi salute under a sign that read “HAIL BYRD.” The photo said the group was part of a Basic Training Class No. 18, which was conducted Oct. 21 through Nov. 27.An investigation into the incident showed an “appalling lack of judgment among the cadets and some members of the Academy staff,” Betsy Jividen, the commissioner of the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation, wrote in a memo.According to Jividen’s investigation, the gesture was described by one of the cadets as a “sign of respect to Byrd,” an instructor.“Instructor Byrd stated she was completely unaware of the historical or racial implication of the gesture,” read a portion of Jividen’s report.“There is no dispute that the ‘Hail Byrd’ gesture and photograph were highly offensive and egregious in appearance,” the report concluded. “But the investigation did not reveal any overt motivation or intent that this was a discriminatory act towards any racial, religious, or ethnic group.”Nevertheless, Jeff Sandy, cabinet secretary for West Virginia, made a recommendation to the governor to terminate “all cadets in the open-handed salute and the closed fist salute” in the photo.“The inevitable consequence of the conduct not only damages the reputation of the Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation but also negatively impacts morale across the workforce,” he wrote in his report to Justice.A news release from the governor’s office on Monday said he had reviewed Sandy’s report and had approved all the recommendations made, including firing the cadets, reported ABC News’ Washington D.C. affiliate, WJLA-TV.Jividen ordered all copies of the image to be destroyed and be taken out of circulation “to keep its harm from spreading,” according to a letter sent to employees.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
