first_img Beauden Barrett Sets Fitness Record In First Blues Training SessionThe Auckland Blues and New Zealand fly-half appears to have returned to rugby training in peak physical condition as shown by his personal best and record setting run in what is known as the Bronco test.The Auckland Blues returned to training ahead of the upcoming Super Rugby Aotearoa campaign with the backs going to their Alexandra Park base in Epsom to do a fitness test. Barrett, a player known for his quickness and turn of speed, completed the drill in four minutes and 12 seconds, which was a new club record.The rest of the backs are clearly in fine physical form, too, as Barrett was only a couple of seconds ahead of scrum-half Jonathan Ruru, and their were eight personal best times set in the test.“PB [personal best], mate, always happy with a PB,” a short-breathed Barrett said at the finish line. “I don’t know how much kicking I’ll be doing after this, though.”The new Super Rugby Aotearoa will see the five New Zealand Super Rugby teams go up against each other in 10 weeks of competition. Each team will play home and away fixtures against one another.Related: Super Rugby Aotearoa Schedule AnnouncedThe action begins with the Highlanders welcoming the Chiefs in Dunedin on 13 June. The Blues will face the Hurricanes a day later and could see Barrett make his first appearance for the franchise, against his old team.

Rugby’s 2020 autumn Internationals schedule taking shape Since the Wales v Scotland Six Nations match was cancelled at the last minute in mid-March, Test rugby has had to take a backseat as the sport navigates its way through the Covid-19 pandemic.More pressing issues like struggling finances, training during lockdown and restarting domestic competitions came to the fore in rugby while global events like the 15-a-side summer tours and World Sevens Series were cancelled. Yet there are promising signs regarding the return of international rugby.Super Rugby competitions in New Zealand and Australia have been followed by the Gallagher Premiership and Guinness Pro14 restarting in August. Now the 2020 autumn Internationals schedule has taken shape too.Southern foes: NZ’s Jordie Barrett passes against Australia in last year’s Rugby Championship (Getty Images)The World Rugby Council has approved the governing body’s recommendation of a longer international window later this year, with the objective of “optimising recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic for the betterment of the global game at all levels”.Travel restrictions mean the original November Test schedule, with southern hemisphere sides travelling to Europe, cannot take place, but there are plans for top-level competitions on both sides of the equator.South Africa have withdrawn from the Rugby Championship, so Argentina, Australia and New Zealand will now play a Tri-Nations tournament. Each team will play each other twice between 31 October and 5 December, with matches being staged in Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney.In the northern hemisphere, the Six Nations matches postponed due to coronavirus took place at the end of October while there were also one-off fixtures between Scotland and Georgia and Wales and France.Related: 2020 Six Nations fixturesLeading men: Ireland captain Johnny Sexton and Italy skipper Luca Bigi (Getty Images)The Women’s Six Nations was more complicated because there were six matches to reschedule, including three apiece for Scotland and Italy. The weekend of 24-25 October saw the Scotland v France and Ireland v Italy matches played, and the original final-round matches were all due to be played on 1 November.However, both Wales v Scotland and France v Ireland were postponed due to positive Covid tests, so Italy v England was the only match that took place. The three remaining fixtures – Italy v Scotland, Wales v Scotland and France v Ireland – have since been cancelled, while the European qualifiers for the 2021 World Cup that were due to take place in December have now been postponed until early next year.Related: 2021 Rugby World Cup Qualifying ProcessEngland Women will play a two-Test series against France in November, though.

first_imgOak Brook, Ill., May 20.Chanting “We work! We sweat! Put $15 in our check!” as they marched behind a banner reading “McDonald’s: $15 and union rights, not food stamps,” thousands of McDonald’s workers and their supporters marched on the fast food chain’s corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., on May 20.They carried a petition signed by 1.4 million people supporting their demands, which they delivered to a McDonald’s representative.A smaller demonstration took place the next day when McDonald’s had its annual meeting in Oak Brook, west of Chicago.Mary Kay Henry, president of the Service Employees International Union, which has financed many of the protests against McDonald’s, called on it to bargain and give its workers a bigger share of its profits.The NAACP also supported this protest. Many of the workers engaged in the struggle are Black.“Even when we get $15 and a union, we will keep fighting,” said Henry. “It doesn’t matter to us [what union the workers join]. What matters to us is that these workers win a union.” (Chicago Tribune, May 21)McDonald’s, whose financial gains are lagging, has a new CEO, Steve Easterbrook, who wants to reinvigorate the company. He has announced a dollar-an-hour raise over the minimum wage — which varies from locality to locality — as well as benefit increases for the 90,000 workers the company directly employs.But 80 percent of McDonald’s workers are employed by franchise owners, and they will not be getting this increase.The SEIU is pursuing a legal strategy before the National Labor Relations Board to get around this issue by declaring McDonald’s a “joint” employer with the franchisees.McDonald’s workers are applying direct pressure on the company with numerous nationwide strikes, protests and occupations. In retaliation, the company has accused the SEIU of spending millions of dollars to injure its brand. (CNN Money, May 21)McDonald’s wanted to use its wage hike to present itself as a progressive burger company, but the two days of militant protests in Oak Brook exposed its pretenses.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Informal talks are likely over the next few days, according to Reuters, as global attention turns towards a U.N. meeting this week. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says nothing had formally been arranged for this week, however, leaving further uncertainty as to whether the U.S. will continue to seek a trilateral agreement.The U.S. appears likely to forge ahead with a U.S.-Mexico only trade agreement until the U.S. can reach an agreement with Canada beyond the September 30th deadline. Trudeau offered some pushback over the weekend, saying Canada would not be rushed into reaching an agreement and that he would not sign “a bad NAFTA deal.” Dairy market access remains a sticking point between the two nations, among a handful of other remaining issues.A new trade agreement was signed on Monday between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued the following statement following the KORUS Free Trade Agreement:“We are entering into a new KORUS agreement that is a better deal for the entire United States economy, including the agricultural sector. This represents an important improvement in trade relations between our two nations, building on long-standing cooperation we have enjoyed. This agreement adds to the momentum building for President Trump’s approach to trade, which is to stand strong for America’s interests and strike better deals. I am optimistic that the dominoes will continue to fall: KORUS, then a new NAFTA, and new agreements with the European Union, Japan, and, most notably, China. As an avid sportsman, I would say ‘put this one in the bag and keep hunting for more.’”Sources: NAFB News Service and USDA U.S., Canada Talks on NAFTA Offer Little Progress; KORUS Completedlast_img read more

Ramasubramanium stated that his appeal against conviction will be heard once top court starts physical hearings. Bench also refused his hospitalisation, stating that medical reports suggest that he doesn’t require any.Senior Advocate Vikas Singh appeared for Kumar and asked the bench to consider the bail plea on merits as the High Court’s judgment was faulty. “The witnesses deposition was completely reversed in the High Court and Trial Court,” said Singh.However, the CJI led bench refused to grant bail to him, adding that neither does that justify a “faulty” judgment and nor does his health require hospitalisation.CJI Bobde said that this was not a “small case” and that bail will not be considered at all at this stage.Singh urged to Court to grant bail to the accused on account of ailing health and spiralling weight loss but Senior Advocate HS Phoolka opposed this by submitting that Kumar was being well taken care of.The top court has been consistently denying bail to Kumar. On May 13, it refused to grant interim bail to the ex-congress MP stating that there was no ground for hospitalisation reflected in the medical report submitted by AIIMS board warranting bail.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had then argued that the case was in fact of “genocide” and that “Kumar was leading a mob”.On March 4, the top court had directed Sajjan Kumar to appear before an AIIMS Board to determine whether his medical condition warranted institutionalisation. The Board was directed to submit its report in a week.The former Congress MP had moved a bail application before the apex court on health grounds, and his counsel, Senior Advocate Vikas Singh had asked the court to hear it on an urgent basis.Singh informed the court that Kumar had lost 7 kgs and was dealing with a life threatening disease due to which he must get interim bail to be admitted to hospital for immediate medical attention.On January 14, Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had issued notice on Congress Leader Sajjan Kumar’s plea against his conviction and sentence in the 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots Case.Next Storylast_img read more
