No phones on Tube as talks fail

first_img PLANS to provide a mobile phone signal on the London underground in time for the Olympics have collapsed.Sources close to the deal told City A.M. that the sheer complexity of the project means there is no way it can be completed in time for the Games.The collapse also jeopardises a £50m “gift” from Chinese telecoms giant Huawei. The firm had offered to supply heavily discounted equipment for the project as a goodwill gesture to the next Olympic city. However, it is not clear whether Huawei will remain involved with the project if it is resurrected after the Olympics.A joint statement from the operators said: “We have been working closely with infrastructure partners and London Underground for some time with the hope of delivering mobile services to the London Underground and are disappointed that it will not be possible to deliver such services in time for next year’s Olympic Games. As a group, we will continue to positively explore all other avenues available to us in order to provide a service at a later date.”Huawei and the four UK mobile network operators are understood to be millions of pounds out of pocket after investing heavily in development.It is understood the collapse was not linked to Boris Johnson’s insistence that public money should not be used to fund the project. A separate project to install wi-fi access in 120 stations is not affected.

Leigh Halfpenny injured making brave try-saving tackle on Luther Burrell

first_imgMonday Mar 10, 2014 Leigh Halfpenny injured making brave try-saving tackle on Luther Burrell Wales fullback Leigh Halfpenny won’t take any further part in the Six Nations after he injured his shoulder during Wales’ 29-18 loss to England on Sunday. Halfpenny left the field after making a brave try-saving tackle on 6ft3 England centre Luther Burrell.As if this year’s campaign couldn’t get more disappointing for Wales, Halfpenny is now out for the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder. Scrumhalf Rhys Webb also left the field with an injury.“Leigh has dislocated his shoulder and that is him gone for the rest of the season,” said coach Warren Gatland. “We are not sure about Rhys, but it’s Leigh’s season over anyway.”Halfpenny kicked all of Wales’ points, but he’ll take no further part in the tournament and will likely be replaced by Liam Williams, who was penalised within minutes of coming on against England.Burrell, who has had an impressive start to his Test career, nearly crossed again but a foot in touch, due to the strong tackle by Halfpenny, meant he wasn’t able to finish off an exciting bit of play.It wasn’t a technically sound tackle, but Halfpenny’s commitment is what prevented the try. It also ended his season though, meaning he has played his final match for the Cardiff Blues (in January) ahead of his move to Toulon next season. He will be there for at least two seasons.Wales play Scotland in Cardiff in this coming weekend. The team will be announced on Tuesday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Six Nations 2014 Related Articles 377 WEEKS AGO Angelo Esposito’s big tackle on Jonny May… 377 WEEKS AGO Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge… 378 WEEKS AGO Ireland and O’Driscoll celebrate 2014 Six… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Mississippi prisoner deaths demand mass action

first_imgAtlantaJan. 13 — For more than 100 years, Parchman Prison in Sunflower County, in Mississippi’s Delta region, has been the location of brutal racism, wretched conditions and unrelenting cruelty.Six Parchman prisoners in one cell, sleeping on cold floor with no blankets.Parchman is also the site of Mississippi’s Death Row execution chamber.The deaths of five inmates in Mississippi prisons during the first week of January 2020 — three of those at Parchman – has brought much needed attention to the inhumane conditions endured by the state’s prison population. The official response to the deaths was a statewide lockdown that stopped visitation and phone calls — and locked all inmates in their cells for days without required showers, medical care, legal visits or exercise.At a Jan. 9 rally at the Georgia State Capitol building in support of the Mississippi prisoners, two Black women with relatives in Parchman’s Unit 29 brought their stories of days of fearful waiting, not knowing if a brother or fiancé were dead or alive, injured or safe.Parchman’s legacy of slaveryMississippi Corrections officials released next to no information despite numerous phone calls. The spate of violent death only became public knowledge because of cell phone videos and text messages from those held in Unit 29, the largest housing section at Parchman.Both women provided virtually the same descriptions of conditions their loved ones were enduring — rats and roaches everywhere, mold on the walls, no running water, broken toilets, no lights, exposed wiring, inedible food, callous and intimidating guards, collapsing ceilings, rain pouring in from holes in the roof with stifling heat in the summer, damp cold in the winter.Porshia Evans said her brother was stabbed multiple times in Wilkinson County Jail prior to being sent to Parchman in November — evidence that violent conditions are throughout the system. Her brother, her only sibling, sent word that he has survived at Parchman, but guards have confiscated his canteen items, hygiene products, legal papers, letter writing materials and books. He was removed from Unit 29 to Unit 32, a building taken out of use 10 years ago because of its decrepit condition. There he and others were put, six or more, into cells without running water and had to sleep on the floor with no mats or blankets.The second woman, worried about repercussions for her fiancé, asked to be known only by her initials, CCC, to tell his story. A fast food worker and mother of six, she actually got confirmation that he was alive and uninjured while at the Jan. 9 rally. He related to her that by chance he was standing near one of the men who was killed and that he and others had been in the “hole” (solitary) for seven days. With more recent news, she knows he was later removed to Unit 32 and hasn’t had a shower since New Year’s Eve. He says many have been injured in encounters with other inmates and prison forces.Evans and CCC both said that bad storms in the area Jan. 10-11 caused the electrical power to go out at Parchman. There were no lights and no running water. Though power was restored in the area, prison officials had not manually turned the power back on as of Jan. 12.Death at ParchmanMeanwhile, prison officials continue to provide little information to the families of the men who were killed. In a Jan. 12 Atlanta Journal Constitution article, Rotonia Gates, the mother of Walter “Keon” Gates who was killed Dec. 31; Jeffrie Hollman, whose son Roosevelt Hollman was beaten and stabbed to death Jan. 2; and other relatives provided details about their loved ones’ fate.Denorris Howell’s blood-covered body was found Jan. 3 in Unit 29. He had spoken to his mother just hours before his murder, pleading for help, fearful he was going to die. Relatives of the five men who were killed question the role of the guards, are critical of Department of Corrections officials, and wonder about the inaction of elected state officials related to the deaths of their loved ones. Mississippi has the third highest incarceration rate in the U.S. — the country that leads the world in incarceration. Parchman Prison has been a death trap since its earliest days. In addition, Parchman is part of the Southern prison-industrial complex, with its roots in slavery, which made money off convict leasing to big plantations and companies through the 1920s and profited from notorious chain gangs during Jim Crow segregation. Now, prisons sign lucrative contracts with private companies for commissary or phone services, while mass incarceration laws continue to target people of color communities. Mass incarceration needs a mass activist response. Justice for the Mississippi Five!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Delhi High Court Seeks Centre’s Response On Delhi Govt Request For Armed Forces Support For Oxygen Supplies, COVID Facilities

first_imgNews UpdatesDelhi High Court Seeks Centre’s Response On Delhi Govt Request For Armed Forces Support For Oxygen Supplies, COVID Facilities Srishti Ojha3 May 2021 4:14 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court has on Monday directed Centre to report instructions on action taken on communication made by Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, to Defense Minister Rajnath Singh for lending services of armed forces to set up Covid 19 facilities, oxygen supply, etc.A Division bench comprising of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli sought the instructions on the submissions made by Senior Advocates Abhinav Vashisht, Krishna Venugopal and amicus curiae Rajshekhar Rao.On Oxygen Supply, Transportation and Assistance of Army and Air ForceDuring the course of hearing, the Bench was apprised by Senior Advocate Abhinav Vashisht that the assistance of armed forces is taken for providing logistical support with regards to the oxygen supply. According to Vashisht, this would also do away with instances of black marketing and would eventually lessen the difficulties faced by doctors and patients in the national capital.At this stage, Senior Advocate Krishna Venugopal also suggested the Court that the Delhi Government may contact Local Commanders of Army, Navy and Air force incharge of Delhi establishments, so time of coordination between Ministries may be reduced.Similarly, amicus curiae Rao suggested that Army’s help may be taken to take care of filling stations, where diversion seems to he happening on ground. “A buffer stock can be maintained, atleast for next two days.” Said Rao.Replying to the aforesaid submissions, Rahul Mehra appearing for GNCTD, while relying upon the Supreme Court’s order in the suo moto covid supplies case, submitted thus:”Please ask them till when will Supreme Court’s directions be complied with. We don’t need to argue further. It’s already been said by SC. They have said that Delhi govt and Centre needs to co-operate. I’m requesting this be implemented.”Reading out the Apex court’s order stating that the deficit has to be dealt with by Centre by creating buffer stock, coordinating with states, Mehra went ahead to submit that the issue of transportation of medical oxygen by suppliers should be taken up by the Central Government.”They should not write letters, they should tell us what to do, in need of interest of citizens.” Mehra argued.At this juncture, Advocate Vashisht argued “We’re clear its a war, and wars can be fought by armed forces and not by common citizens. We’re in a war like situation.”The Bench took note of the letter dated 2nd May 2021 written by the Delhi Government to the Defense Minister Rajnath Singh asking for the support of armed forces for setting up covid facilities.At this point, Sharma however submitted that since the Supreme Court had issued directions and the parties were before it, the issue must be left to be considered by the Apex Court.Not agreeing to the aforesaid submission, the Bench remarked thus:”Supreme Court has not dealt with requirement of more beds. SC has considered and dealt with oxygen regarding oxygen and State Cooperation, not regarding hospital beds etc.”Furthermore, Justice Sanghi orally observed “You can’t tell us Supreme Court has passed the order SC will deal with it. We are all duty bound.”The Court took note of the suggestion made by Mr. Venugopal that communication be sent to station commanders in Delhi to expedite the actions to be taken in pursuance of the aforesaid.During the later course of hearing, ASG Chetan Sharma apprised the bench that the Defense Minister, Rajnath Singh is himself looking into the issue.On Covid Guidance and Management of Covid PatientsDuring the course of hearing, suggestions poured in from Mr. Venugopal who apprised the bench about clinical guidance for management of Adult covid19 patients. “I’m told there are now US and UK doctors helping patients in India through tele consultation and retain people even at stage of moderate condition and avoiding hospitalisation. This tele consultation can help. If its done well it would be equally effective in Delhi.” Venugopal submitted.Furthermore, it was also suggested that larger number of retired doctors can be brought in to reduce the crisis in near future.On this, amicus curiae Rao suggested that the Government can put a system in place for people to know when to consult a doctor.Flagging the issues with regards to crematoriums and oxygen Concentrators, Venugopal submitted thus:”I’m told 100s of concentrators are stuck in customs. If the custom can be put on war footing to clear immediately on priority, first to hospitals then individuals followed by distributord with undertaking to not black market. We can make demands from State, but when we see people dying, we feel we need to step up and help. Delhi govt with the LG can being something in.”At this juncture, the Bench enquired about the status of pending oxygen concentrators.”People should not loose lives for this. That there are resources but they are pending clearance”, the bench observed.Portal on Availability of Covid Medicines, Testing, Oxygen Supply: Issues Highlighted by AmicusAmicus Curiae Rao flagged important issues with regards to the administration of covid drugs and covid supplies in the national capital.Starting of, Rao highlighted that the portal for medicines which had to be operational in one day according to court’s order, has.jot been done yet by the GNCTD. Furthermore, Rao also highlighted that issues with regards to oxygen supply and availability of CNG Cylinders.”There’s issue of testing. ICMR has issued appropriate guidelines, but have to br communicated. We’ve pointed out aspects to be considered. One is Direction to Centre and Delhi to clarify status of RTPCR alternative tests.”Furthermore, Rao also suggested that the waitlist status of beds should be updated by hospitals, so that a person won’t go there.”Other issue is Notices are being issued by GNCTD to hospitals threatening coercive action as they’re not augmenting their oxygen capacities.” Rao continued.On Supreme Court Directions Regarding Oxygen SupplyOn an update asked by the Bench on Supreme Court’s directions regarding oxygen supply, ASG Chetan Sharma informed the Court that 6 additional tankers carrying 20 MT each reached yesterday in the national capital, making the total oxygen supply to 120MT.At this juncture, Mehra apprised the Court that a status report will be filed tomorrow before the Court dealing with all the concerns and issues raised by the Court today.In a special Sunday sitting, the Delhi High Court yesterday directed the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi to ensure that COVID drugs, oxygen cylinders and medical equipments for pandemic treatment are not sold above the Maximum Retail Price.

Sisters’ concert: A Ryman experience

first_img “And all those girls at Sisters can sing,” Hollis said. “I was very surprised at how good they are. The quality of their voices was excellent. Their selection of songs was appropriate and the variety of the music made for a very entertaining night. It was as good as it gets.”The Sisters’ performance at studio 116 was their first public appearance and also featured Pat’s daughter and granddaughter, Judy and Emily Bryan; the Sisters’ sister, June Shaw; and Naomi Miles, a friend and employee. Trevor Bryan was the Sisters’ “band.”Kathy Sauer, Pike County Chamber of Commerce president, said “fabulous” is the word that comes to mind, “and fabulous it was.” Geraldine worked the register at the restaurant Sunday and people told her they really enjoyed the show.“One lady asked for our recipes so she could eat good when we closed the restaurant to go to Nashville,” Geraldine said, laughing.The big question now is when will Sisters and friends be in concert again.“If we can get up the nerve, we might be ready again in five year,” Geraldine said. “We did have a lot of fun and really appreciated people coming. I hope they did enjoy it.”Geraldine turned serious for a moment, which is a bit out of character for either of the Sisters.“I told Pat that there was an angel up in heaven Saturday night harmonizing right along with us,” she said. “Our mama, Juanita Golden, loved to sing. She would put us out in the swing and we’d sing and sing. Mama had the prettiest, sweetest voice I ever hear. I know that Saturday night she was singing right along with us again.” Sisters’ concert: A Ryman experience Latest Stories Book Nook to reopen This Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The emcee Randy Ross was very entertaining and the man (Broshie Galloway) who went on stage and buck danced brought the house down.“Those who were not there truly missed a wonderful evening … and we all loved the banana pudding.”Geraldine was at the restaurant Monday but Pat was at home packing for the Grand Ole Opry or Hollywood or both.“Cooking comes naturally for us and we’re more comfortable in the kitchen than we are on stage,” Geraldine said of the Sisters debut performance. “I was real nervous at the beginning but it got a little easier when I saw that we could do it.” Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Messenger Photo/Jaine TreadwellThe “Country Comes to Town” audience at studio 116 in Brundidge Saturday night gave “Sisters and friends” a well-deserved standing ovation.
