Safety comes first in Brazil as ambulance drives straight onto the field during play

first_imgThursday Sep 27, 2018 Safety comes first in Brazil as ambulance drives straight onto the field during play We’ve seen all sorts of strange things happen on rugby fields over the years, but this must be up there with one of the craziest, and potentially also the most dangerous.ADVERTISEMENTThe bizarre incident took place in last weekend’s Brazil national premiership quarter-final between Poli-USP and São José.As the story goes, the paramedics were apparently told that they could enter the pitch to treat minor injuries without the game having to be stopped. But for some reason, they decided it was a good idea to do so by actually driving onto the field in an ambulance.As you can see, the run of play almost went straight into the vehicle. Thankfully, there were no further injuries. But if there were, help was nearby.São José won the first leg 30-29 with the second leg to be played this Saturday… hopefully without any ambulances on the field. credit: Rugby m1L Gr4UADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Amateur , See it to Believe it Related Articles 32 WEEKS AGO Viral video of Scottish club brawl goes down… 69 WEEKS AGO RUGBYDUMP BLITZ: This Best of the Week round… 69 WEEKS AGO RD BLITZ – Disaster, just when it looked… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Customers accessing the service via phone will need to quote ‘Remember A Charity’.The discount is open to anyone, not solely supporters of charities that are members of the Remember a Charity consortium.The partnership has been announced on the first day of Remember A Charity in your Will Week (11-17 September 2017), the annual campaign to promote and encourage charitable bequests in people’s Wills. This is the fifth year that Co-Op Legal Services have partnered with Remember A Charity.James Antoniou, Head of Wills for Co-op Legal Services said: “We work with a number of large and smaller charities offering affordable Will-writing services to their supporters.   As such we understand that there is certainly a desire for clients to leave charitable gifts of all types in Wills for a variety of reasons and this is something that the charities heavily rely on. These gifts can be small or large and they don’t necessarily have to be financial.” Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity added: “We hope this Remember A Charity Week will encourage even more people to consider how they can have their say on the world they want to pass on. If everyone left just a small amount to good causes, once they’ve taken care of loved ones, it could make an enormous difference for future generations.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Howard Lake | 11 September 2017 | News Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Conferencia une fuerzas del movimiento negro del sur

first_imgSavannah, Georgia“La profunda crisis que enfrenta el pueblo negro requiere una acción audaz y radical”, comienza el borrador del Manifiesto para la Liberación Negra que se distribuyó en la Conferencia Organizativa en el Sur sobre Derechos Humanos (SHROC X), celebrada en Savannah, Georgia del 12 al 14 de diciembre.Este poderoso encuentro reunió principalmente a activistas negras/os de muchos estados del sur para discutir las campañas y las condiciones de la región y el desarrollo de estrategias para la construcción de un movimiento anti-racista de ddhh, así como el resurgimiento de un movimiento nacional unificado de liberación negra.El enfoque de la conferencia fue la emergente rebelión en el país contra los asesinatos y el terror racista de la policía. Con el tema “Guerra, Crisis y Represión – Sin Justicia no hay Paz”, la conferencia conectó la guerra interna contra la América Negra con las dos guerras sin fin en el exterior y la crisis económica del capitalismo en un callejón sin salida.En su discurso de apertura, Ajamu Baraka, organizador y activista veterano de ddhh, habló de cómo la crisis capitalista, que ha dejado a millones de personas en EUA permanente y estructuralmente desempleadas, junto a la supremacía blanca sistemática, está creando la base material de esta enorme plaga de terror racista de la policía.La conferencia fue organizada para honrar la vida y la lucha de Troy Davis, un hombre inocente ejecutado por el estado de Georgia en septiembre de 2011 tras cumplir 20 años de prisión bajo una acusación falsa. Amigos y familiares de Davis lucharon muchos años por su libertad, sabiendo que era inocente. Davis era de Savannah y su familia participó en la SHROC X.Kim Davis, la hermana de Davis, habló de cómo en una de las luchas finales para liberar a su hermano, un juez de la Corte de Apelaciones del 11º Circuito rechazó la apelación, negándose a considerar las pruebas que habían sido ignoradas durante 20 años.  La comunidad se refiere al Condado de Chatham donde ocurrió esta farsa, como “Condado Cheat-em” [nota ed: juego de palabras en inglés donde “cheat” quiere decir “engañar”].En las paredes había retratos de otras personas negras muertas o encarceladas recientemente por departamentos de policía en el país, entre ellos Charles Smith, un joven baleado y muerto mientras estaba esposado por la policía de Savannah en septiembre 2014.  Otras/os fotografiados incluyen Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Renisha McBride y Trayvon Martin.  También había fotos de Marissa Alexander, Monica Jones y CeCe McDonald, tres mujeres negras, dos de ellas trangénero, quienes fueron encarceladas por defenderse. McDonald fue liberada recientemente.Jamala Rogers, de la Organización por la Lucha Negra en St. Louis, habló sobre las acciones espontáneas diarias en Ferguson, Misuri.  Habló sobre el fuerte y valiente liderazgo emergiendo de jóvenes negras/os, incluyendo grupos como Hands Up United establecido por Taureen “Tory” Russell y el poeta Tef Poe.La conferencia también enfocó las luchas obreras del sur por la justicia económica y el empoderamiento. Muchas/os de la Asamblea de Trabajadoras/es del Sur (SWA por sus siglas en inglés) y del Congreso de Trabajadoras/es Unidos discutieron la lucha contra el racismo, las leyes reaccionarias llamadas “derecho a trabajar” (por menos), y otras cuestiones que enfrentan las/os trabajadores de la región como la lucha por $15/hr y un sindicato.Un poderoso panel incluyó a Lisa López, una ex-trabajadora de Walmart miembro de OUR Walmart;  Alfred Marshall, del Centro de Trabajadores de Nueva Orleans;  Bernetta Lanier, de la Asoc. Internacional de Estibadores, L-1414;  Jerome Irwin, conductor de autobús escolar del Condado de Chatham empleado por First Student, un contratista privado de autobuses escolares;  Sarah White, del Centro de Trabajadores de Mississippi;  y una mujer de la Alianza Nacional de Trabajadoras/es del Hogar en Atlanta.Irwin, organizador del sindicato Teamsters, habló sobre los esfuerzos para organizar a las/os 500 empleados de First Student.  Habló de un reciente acuerdo que resultó en pago anual. Según Irwin, esta es la primera vez que el pago anual se ha negociado en el país con una compañía privada de autobuses escolares. También habló de una importante victoria en la que 19 trabajadoras/es fueron recontratados después de ser despedidos en 2006, resultando en la paga de $250.000 en salarios atrasados divididos entre las/os trabajadores.Los Teamsters también continúan con su campaña iniciada en 1995 para organizar a los conductores de camiones en el Puerto de Savannah. Campañas similares de Teamsters están ocurriendo en todo el país, incluso en Long Beach, Calif.Con cara al futuro, el SWA está tratando de organizar piquetes en los sitios de trabajo en todo el sur apoyando al movimiento Black Lives Matter — un esfuerzo para que los sindicatos participen más en los levantamientos que están sucediendo en todo el país.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The hard work of keeping the trains running

first_imgThe 600,000 or so people who daily use the transportation hub at Penn Station here depend on maintenance-of-way (MW) workers. These people maintain the tracks so trains can operate safely. Signal maintainers are also needed. Other workers provide information, sell tickets, clean cars and clean the station itself.All these workers must confront the dilapidation of the 107-year-old Penn Station. Amtrak, which is controlled by the U.S. government, has been underfunded since it was founded in 1971.Both New Jersey Transit and the Long Island Railroad are commuter railroads that use Penn Station, with a big increase in the number of passengers since 20 years ago. Their 1,200 daily trains make repairs difficult.April 3 derailmentThe key role that MW workers play can be seen in the April 3 derailment of a NJT commuter train carrying about 1,200 passengers. Three cars in the middle of the train, which was traveling very slowly, came off the rails. This was the second derailment in less than two weeks.The workers’ first task was to get all passengers off the train; there were no major injuries because of the slow speed. Then the re-railing of the cars was a tricky and risky job for workersThe derailment occurred near where switches are thrown to direct incoming trains to their platforms. The MW workers had to be protected from the trains. Dispatchers provided some protection, but workers needed to spot trains and sound a warning to pause the work.This small safeguard was mandated by the 2016 amended Roadway Protection Act, one of the rare national worker-­protection laws passed in the U.S. in the last 30 years.Amtrak, demonstrating a reckless attitude toward worker and rider safety, later admitted that a wooden tie had rotted and that it knew about the problem, but didn’t think it serious enough to replace.May 3 sewage leakOn May 3 a big sewage leak came down from anFor the cleanup, maintenance workers needed rubber gloves and mops. Some had hats or handkerchiefs over their hair.Based on photo coverage by the Daily News, it doesn’t appear any other protective gear was issued to workers handling the seemingly raw sewage.As the sewage flow lasted until the late afternoon, both Amtrak and the LIRR made a point of announcing that train service wasn’t interrupted.The Penn Station MW workers are covered by a union affiliated with the Teamsters, but many workers in the passenger areas don’t have union protection.Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is using the Penn Station incidents to call for turning Amtrak construction and management over to “a private-sector operator.” (Albany Times-Union, May 21)But a move to privatization will not provide better safety, wages or benefits for Penn Station workers.Workers know this, and those at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have been rallying for months to improve their working conditions.Service Employees Local 32BJ announced May 16 that it is organizing for legislation to raise wages to $18 an hour for workers at New York airports and at private companies providing services at bus terminals and train stations. (New York Times, May 16)The union campaign would cover as many as 40,000 workers in those ­locations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fed Minutes Show Concern About Inflation, Broader Economy

Some participants noted that a gradual increase in the federal funds rate would be consistent with their expectation that the neutral short-term real interest rate will rise slowly over the next few years,” the minutes stated.As far as housing is concerned, the residential mortgage market was little changed from the previous meeting.”Credit remained tight for borrowers with low credit scores, hard-to-document income, or higher debt-to-income ratios. Interest rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages increased 30 basis points, in line with increases in yields on mortgage-backed securities and comparable-maturity Treasury securities. Nevertheless, mortgage rates continued to be quite low by historical standards,” the minutes said.In addition, a number of officials found that there appear to be “continued improvement in the housing sector, including ongoing house price appreciation, low levels of home inventories, the substantial gap between the rate of household formation and the relatively slow pace of construction, and the possibility that homebuyers may be entering the market in anticipation of higher mortgage rates.”“Now that liftoff is behind us, the question on everyone’s mind is how quickly rates will normalize,” said National Association of Federal Credit Unions Chief Economist Curt Long. “The Fed appears to be eyeing four quarter-point rate increases in 2016, but that depends on a lot of factors falling into place. The minutes indicated that the committee is somewhat less pessimistic about the possibility of slow growth abroad and the threat that might pose to the U.S. than many observers. As for inflation, there appears to be a growing divergence of views about risks to the Fed’s 2 percent target from lower oil prices and a stronger dollar.”Click here to view the complete minutes.

Turnover rates increased for the third consecutive month in line with the increase in lease expirations.”While vacancy rates trended lower for the sixth consecutive month in March, the authors noted that trend may reverse in the coming months due to the number of pending lease expirations and that Morningstar notes that higher lease expirations generally correlate with higher vacancy rates.The average delinquency rate among the 24 securitzations covered in the report remained low in March, at 0.5 percent; only three of the 24 transactions in the report had a delinquency rate higher than 1.0 percent—HPA 2016-1 (Home Partners of America) at 1.3 percent, SWAY 2014-1 (SWAY Residential) at 1.3 percent, and TAH 2015-SFR1 (Tricon American Homes) at 1.3 percent.Retention rates generally remained strong across the 24 transactions, with 22 of them reporting rates of 73 percent or higher as of February (the latest retention data available). The only two outliers were ARP 2014-SFR1 (American Residential Properties) at 64.1 percent and PRD 2015-SFR1 (Progressive Residential) at 68.9 percent.
