first_imgWhat you need to know about Ireland’s 37-27 win over Wales at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin Eye the line: Jacob Stockdale scores Ireland’s opening try against Wales (Getty Images) Ireland – Tries: Stockdale 2, Aki, Leavy, Healy. Cons: Sexton 2, Carbery. Pens: Sexton, Murray.Wales – Tries: G Davies, Shingler, Evans. Cons: Halfpenny 3. Pens: Halfpenny 2. Ireland 37-27 Wales Talking PointsIreland v Wales games are traditionally tight and this one was no exception, the excitement lasting until the final minute. Yet when reflecting on this Six Nations game, the hosts should have been comfortable winners at the Aviva Stadium.They completely dominated the territory (75%) and possession (69%) statistics but were unable to make their advantage tell consistently – and maybe even lifted their foot off the pedal slightly after scoring the bonus-point try midway through the second half.They should have had a far greater advantage than the 15-13 one they took into the break such was their dominance, but it was their own errors that proved costly and they only had that lead after Bundee Aki had stretched for the line in the closing minutes of the half and Johnny Sexton had slotted the conversion.Related: Six Nations bonus pointsIreland started the second period on their mettle and secured the try bonus after 55 minutes with scores from Dan Leavy and Cian Healy.Arm’s length: Bundee Aki stretches for the line to score Ireland’s second try (Getty Images)That Wales then narrowed the gap to seven points through Aaron Shingler’s 62nd-minute try was a testament to the visitors’ desire and resilience for Ireland surely should have been out of sight by that point.And even when Conor Murray slotted a penalty to take Ireland’s lead to ten points, Wales hit back with a Steff Evans try.Jacob Stockdale, who had touched down at the start of the game, had the final say with an interception try as Wales looked for a winning score and that summed up just how crazy this match was, ebbing and flowing in all directions. And it was brilliant to see two sides committed to playing attacking, ball-in-hand rugbyTwo things we learnt – Ireland are making hard work of winning; Wales are an extremely difficult side to kill off as they keep coming back! In fact, they were unlucky not to finish with a losing bonus point in the end.Here are the big talking points from the game…Missed opportunitiesJohnny Sexton didn’t get any points on the board until the 35th minute, missing three kicks at goal in succession for the first time since 2010, when he was off-target with four for Leinster against Scarlets (stat courtesy of Stuart Farmer!).The Ireland fly-half may have been controlling matters with ball in hand but he didn’t look all that comfortable when putting his boot to it, perhaps a symptom of the back injury that caused him to miss part of the captain’s run the previous day.He found his groove towards the end of the half, slotting a penalty and a conversion to give Ireland that 15-13 lead.On target: Leigh Halfpenny kicks a penalty at the Aviva Stadium (Getty Images)Yet it wasn’t just Sexton’s kicking that made life difficult for Ireland. Their inability to look after the ball in Wales’ half saw several other opportunities wasted as the visitors were able to snaffle possession and clear pressure – or create pressure of their own.After 20 minutes, Ireland had 70% possession and 81% territory but were only 5-3 up! That was as much down to Ireland’s own errors as anything Wales did.Power gameIreland started the second half with a bang – much like the fireworks that greeted the teams’ arrival on the pitch before kick-off – and the increase in intensity brought tries for Dan Leavy and Cian Healy within the first 15 minutes. The forwards were able to overpower Wales from close range and their maul became a more prominent feature of proceedings.As Warren Gatland said: “What Ireland are good at is squeezing sides and they squeezed us today.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It is the statistics that show why Ireland should have won this fixture far more comfortably as they dominated every area: 166 ball carries to Wales’ 74; 457 metres made to Wales’ 251; 93 tackles made to Wales’ 175. No wonder Alun Wyn Jones used the word “sapping” afterwards.Pass masterThe game was still in single digits for minutes when Johnny Sexton fired a beautifully crisp, long, flat pass in front of Wales’ rush defence, missing out two team-mates and finding the grateful hands of Jacob Stockdale on the wing. It made the speed of the defensive line in red an irrelevance and Stockdale had a clear run for the line from five metres out to score his seventh try in seven Tests.Playmaker: Johnny Sexton was in the thick of action against Wales (Getty Images)In the lead-up to Ireland’s second try Sexton produced another sublime pass, releasing Cian Healy with an inside ball, and then one of his trademark loops with Chris Farrell gained his side a few extra metres before Bundee Aki stretched for the line.Sexton’s boot may have been off-target early on but his distribution was en pointe. We saw his feisty side, too, as he looked to barge over from close range, making a couple of metres to help set up Cian Healy’s try, later won a breakdown turnover and took a quick tap penalty rather than opting for the safer option of the posts.That tap may have come to nothing but the intent was there and Joe Schmidt revealed Sexton had highlighted at half-time that Wales were turning their backs at penalties and in that instance he was clearly looking to take advantage.Paying the penaltyWithin ten minutes, Wales had given away as many penalties as they did in the whole match against England. By half-time, Aaron Shingler had matched that Twickenham tally (two) on his own.Related: England 12-6 Wales match reportWales could not get on the right side of referee Glen Jackson, particularly at the contact area, and that meant they could not build momentum. They conceded none penalties across the 80 minutes to Ireland’s four.Gareth Davies showed a lovely sidestep to score his try but in reality it was Wales’ only try-scoring opportunity of the half. They were second best in all facets and struggled to retain possession long enough to break down the green wall or create chances.Hot stepper: Gareth Davies dives over for Wales’ first-half try (Getty Images)New facesMuch of the discussion in the build-up was of the return of three Lions for Wales and the absence of three Lions for Ireland. Yet it was a couple of lesser-known names that so impressed here.Chris Farrell, who was Man of the Match, may have been playing in only his third Test but he made notable impacts in attack and defence, his work-rate matching that of Dan Leavy in the back row. Leavy was another who popped up all over the pitch, offering himself as a carrier and making telling tackles – he topped Ireland’s tackle charts with 12 while Farrell was second with eight.Green giant: Chris Farrell impressed in only his third Test for Ireland (Getty Images)Andrew Porter may not match Tadhg Furlong’s skills in open play but he did a fine job at the scrum to show that Ireland are building more depth to the squad, just as Wales have done with the form of Josh Navidi and Aaron Shingler in this championship. It was Navidi who provided the scoring pass for Shingler in Dublin.Jump to it: Aaron Shingler impressed at the lineout and scored a try (Getty Images)Poor PatchSpare a thought for Rhys Patchell. He started the first two games at fly-half but was left out of the match-day 23 for this encounter following the return of Dan Biggar.Yet he was still in Dublin as a travelling reserve and took part in the warm-up – and then, once the match squad returned to the changing room for their final preparations, Patchell had to do a series of sprints and fitness drills on the pitch.last_img read more

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Efforts to build wealth for Black Americans could focus on property ownership.Matt McClain/The Washington Post via Getty Images Community land trusts today are community-run, nonprofit landholding organizations that aim to help low-income buyers obtain homes. The residents, who become members of the trust, elect board members to govern the organization and guide its development and investments to meet community needs and priorities.By Mark Roseland, Professor of Community Resources and Development, Arizona State University and Christopher Boone, Dean and Professor of Sustainability, Arizona State UniversityAmerican cities represent part of the nation’s long and grim history of discrimination and oppression against Black people. They can also be part of the recovery from all that harm.Some cities’ work can be symbolically important, such as removing public monuments that honor oppression. But as professors of urban sustainability and community development at Arizona State University, we see that cities can do much more to address inequality, starting with an area that was key to past discrimination: how land is used.Zoning rules, including requirements that prohibit duplexes or anything other than single-family homes on residential lots, have helped maintain class and racial segregation. Lending practices like redlining that discriminate mostly against people of color in specific urban neighborhoods have entrenched poverty and inequality in U.S. cities.One result is that the average Black family with children in the U.S. has just one cent of wealth for every dollar held by the average white family with children.Some calls to resolve these inequalities have raised an idea with century-old roots: community land trusts to assemble land for the benefit of Black Americans.Cities consider compensationSome cities are already looking at ways to promote racial equality. In July, the Asheville, North Carolina, city council unanimously passed a resolution directing the city manager “to boost economic mobility and opportunity in the Black community.”Also in July, the mayor of Providence, Rhode Island issued an executive order “committing the City to a process of truth, reconciliation and municipal reparations for Black, Indigenous (Indian) People, and People of Color in Providence.”To carry out these lofty goals, they could take a page from history.A new kind of land ownershipIn the 1960s, civil rights organizers recognized that denying property rights was a key method of reinforcing white supremacy in the U.S., blocking people from putting down roots in a community, limiting their political power as well as wealth.They devised a system called a “community land trust” as a way for African American farmers to work rural land for their own benefit. This was in stark contrast to the sharecropping system prevalent after the Civil War, where black families would rent small plots of land, or shares, to work themselves and in return give a portion of their crop to the landowner at the end of the year.The first community land trust in rural Georgia in 1970 was established on land purchased by a small group of individuals with some federal grant assistance and became the largest single piece of land in the country owned by African Americans, who got to keep all the proceeds from their labor. Although the trust, New Communities Inc., was beset by drought and discrimination from the start and was forced to close by the late 1980s, it helped inspire people to create similar organizations across the country.Community land trusts today are more often focused on housing. They are community-run, nonprofit landholding organizations that aim to help low-income buyers obtain homes. Trust land can be purchased or donated. The model allows community ownership of the land with individual ownership of houses.With this model, a buyer can get into a home for less money than elsewhere in the local market, because they aren’t paying for the land – just the building. This makes homes more affordable, especially for low-income families who often can get down-payment assistance and low-interest mortgages from the trust as well.The residents, who become members of the trust, elect board members to govern the organization and guide its development and investments to meet community needs and priorities.Community land trusts are a form of permanently affordable housing based on shared equity. The trust retains ownership of the land and maintains it for the benefit of homeowners present and future and the community as a whole. The homeowner leases the land but owns the building and pays for improvements.The land lease sets out terms for any future sale of the property, letting the homeowner build equity through appreciation in value, while ensuring the home remains affordable for future limited-income buyers. This sort of shared-equity model may not appeal to people who can afford open-market housing. But for those otherwise priced out of the housing market, it is an opportunity to build equity and wealth, and establish credit and financial stability.These trusts also serve renters by providing long-term leases with limits on rent prices, as well as by investing in housing in communities where others won’t. They also can give a more formal voice to tenants, who otherwise are often ignored by local officials.There are now between 225 and 280 community land trusts in the U.S., which together have around 15,000 home ownership units and 20,000 rental units.To encourage more of this type of development, New York City passed a bill in 2017 exempting community land trusts from certain taxes. Houston in 2019 announced a plan to use a community land trust to develop 1,000 affordable units.This decommissioned fire station in central Seattle is slated to be turned over to a community land trust to benefit people of African descent in the area.Joe Mabel/City of SeattleA history of working togetherLocal governments have formed several kinds of partnerships with community land trusts. In June, the city of Seattle announced it would transfer a decommissioned fire station to the Africatown Community Land Trust, saying “we understand the urgency behind making bold investments in the Black community and increasing community ownership of land.” Community members hope the site will play a key role in a city development plan that highlights Black entrepreneurs. It’s one of several proposals in the region for Black-led community organizations to acquire underutilized public property.Cities have also used municipal zoning powers to require larger developers to donate a portion of new development to community land trusts or related entities such as housing trust funds for permanently affordable housing.Partnerships between cities and community land trusts are a promising way to provide affordable housing and help low-income and minority families. As cities reflect on their roles in perpetuating institutional racism and what they can do to relieve it, they can use their zoning laws and negotiating power to support community land trusts, as one way to keep housing affordable and benefit minority communities.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

As the digital world is increasingly moving further towards mobile, and a huge amount of charity traffic comes through mobile social media app referrals, charities at the very least need to have a mobile-friendly website.

However, half of the sites had poor colour contrast, and only two out of ten contained captions on their online videos. In terms of usability, half of the websites didn’t contain an HTML sitemap, or easy-to-use navigation bars.While mobile donations are growing, only three of the ten sites had a specific mobile application, with just two having a responsive website, and three having an adaptive one.

first_imgBy Feb. 22, COVID-19 related deaths in the U.S. surpassed 500,000. Since then, another 55,000 people have died from the virus, and numbers are trending up. More U.S. lives have been lost in this pandemic than in combat during World Wars I and II combined.   U.S. combined military spending for those two major wars was over $5.07 trillion in 2019 dollars. And military spending has been prioritized ever since. The 2020 military budget — $721.5 billion — was the largest portion of the discretionary U.S. federal budget.In 2019, the U.S. spent $35.4 billion on nuclear weapons. Over the next three decades, nuclear weapons modernization plans could cost up to $2 trillion.Ask Congress for money to spend making war and/or producing nuclear weapons and they will likely shell out more than you requested. It fills the coffers of their backers in the military-industrial complex. But suggest raising the hourly minimum wage to $15 — which would benefit over 27 million workers — and politicians will fight you tooth and nail.Politicians from both bourgeois parties were ready to go to war to block passage of long overdue relief for low-wage workers — predominantly people of color, immigrants, women and gender oppressed — because the new COVID legislation initially included the minimum wage increase.Millions of people who survived COVID-19 still face job loss and evictions. Two million people may experience food insecurity in the U.S. this year — but apparently addressing starvation is not a Congressional priority. Nor is funding infrastructure such as public schools, housing, and transportation.Biden’s $1.9 billion American Rescue Plan, signed March 11, was described by House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) as “too costly, too corrupt and too liberal.” He called it “a laundry list of left-wing priorities that predate the pandemic and do not meet the needs of American families” during a floor speech March 10.He is partially right — the needs of U.S. families have been ignored for decades, and the provisions of the Biden bill do not go far enough in addressing them.Workers’ needs vs. capitalist greedPoliticians who voted against the bill claimed they were motivated by concerns about increasing the national debt. Flashback to March 2020, when Trump signed the $2.2 trillion CARES Act surrounded by top GOP leaders. Or travel back to 2017, when Trump signed the Tax Cut and Jobs Act that cut corporate taxes by $1.5 trillion, resulting in deficit spending reaching $984 billion and causing federal borrowing to skyrocket.The CARES Act and three smaller measures passed in 2020, with support from both sides of the aisle, were crafted to make sure the biggest beneficiaries were corporations and the country’s wealthiest individuals. While the CARES Act gave $1,200 stimulus payments to around 159 million people, this was small change compared to the billions in additional tax breaks handed out to the 1% for multiple years or to the total costs of wars.The Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation found that five tax provisions specifically aimed at the wealthiest families, including the Trumps, would cost nearly as much as all the stimulus checks combined. These measures gave immensely bigger benefits to corporations and a handful of the ultrarich. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, the major concern of most U.S. corporations has not been the rising death toll but their falling bottom lines.  Capitalists can gamble on the stock market and will benefit from tax breaks handed to them by lackey politicians. But without workers on the job, producing more wealth for the bosses than the bosses pay them in wages, their profit system starts to crumble. Under capitalism, labor is the source of all wealth. The push to get workers back on the job is what motivated pro-capitalist politicians to throw COVID caution to the wind and pass only minimal economic relief measures.Workers need the guarantee of a livable monthly income, protection against evictions and adequate access to food and health care, so that they cannot be forced to work in unsafe conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic just to survive. This is what workers have in socialist countries.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
