Sonny-Bill inspires Toulon to a great comeback vs Mont-de-Marsan

first_imgTuesday Feb 3, 2009 Sonny-Bill inspires Toulon to a great comeback vs Mont-de-Marsan Toulon came from behind to put in an inspired second half performance against fellow relegation candidates Mont De Marsan this past weekend.With all the talk focussing on the comeback of coach Tana Umaga, it was in fact another New Zealander who took center stage, sparking the impressive comeback which saw them score some fantastic tries.Playing at number 13, Sonny Bill Williams finally came right for the southerners as he played a staring role in the 38-22 win, sparking the home side that were down to 14 men twice during the match.The 15th man though, the crowd, lifted the team to victory as they came back from being 19-13 down at halftime.The win gave them a much needed bonus point, and lifted them two places in the table, up to 11th.Umaga stayed in the stands, so is yet to make his comeback appearance, but he was not needed as Czech international Martin Jagr scored a classy double, as did New Zealand winger Sinoti Sinoti.It was Toulons first league win since beating Biarritz in November.“Tonight we had cohesion, togetherness and we saw players like Sonny Bill Williams expressing themselves 100 per cent,” Toulon assistant coach Aubin Hueber said.

Dogs Trust launches 2019 ‘A dog is for life’ Christmas campaign

She can be reached via The 60 second version features vocals by Academy Award winning songwriter Sam Smith, in a cover of the Christmas classic ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ and launches on ITV1 on 9 November. 40, 20 and 10-second versions will follow in cinemas, on social media and in digital adverts in shopping centres and on high streets.The advert is supported by a through the line campaign which reminds people of the ease with which dogs can get caught up in rush buying and how the charity’s message can be shared in the lead up to Christmas.Nick Daniel, Dogs Trust Marketing Director said:“We wanted to create an emotional connection with our saying ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas®’ and communicate the idea that it’s not just a slogan, but a serious message.“Sharing your life with a dog is an amazing thing but today’s online reality is that puppies can now be bought in moments. And whilst most people fully understand the commitment, in the lead up to Christmas some can get wrapped up in the fever of present buying. We hope to encourage more people to plan for the commitment that comes with owning a dog and land the message that we’re also here to help.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis35 On average, Dogs Trust receives a call every six minutes from people wanting to give up a dog. Last year, online searches to get a puppy increased by 44% a week before Christmas compared to the yearly average and searches to give up a dog peaked in January. Dogs Trust has chosen to launch its campaign in November when online shopping reaches fever pitch in a bid to encourage more people to consider the longer-term commitment that dogs deserve.Anna Arnell, Creative Partner at And Rising, who created the advert said:“It’s hard to imagine that dogs are bought and discarded in the same way we pop corks, then throw them away the next. ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas®’ is such a well-known slogan. We hope our creative brings to life the true meaning behind it.”  614 total views,  2 views todaycenter_img Melanie May | 6 November 2019 | News The video:[youtube height=”450″width=”800″][/youtube]  615 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis35 Dogs Trust unveils its long-standing ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.®’ 2019 campaign today.‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas®’ was created by former Dogs Trust CEO and Trustee, Clarissa Baldwin CBE in 1978.

BREAKING : Supreme Court To Pronounce Judgment In Pleas Challenging Maratha Quota Tomorrow

first_imgTop StoriesBREAKING : Supreme Court To Pronounce Judgment In Pleas Challenging Maratha Quota Tomorrow LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK4 May 2021 8:55 AMShare This – xA Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court will pronounce judgement tomorrow in a batch of pleas challenging the Maharashtra SEBC Act, 2018, which provides for reservation for Marathas in jobs and education.A 5-Judge Bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, L. Nageswara Rao, S. Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and S. Ravindra Bhat had reserved judgment in the case on March 26 after a consecutive hearing of 10 days.As per the causelist, Justices Ashok Bhushan, Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ravindra Bhat have written judgments in the case.The pleas before the Constitution Bench challenges the Bombay High Court judgment passed in June 2019, and submits that the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC) Act, 2018, which provides for 12% and 13% quota to the Maratha community in education and jobs respectively, violated the principles laid in the case of Indira Sawhney v. Union of India (1992) as per which the Apex Court capped the reservation limit at 50%. The Bombay High Court, while upholding the Maratha quota, held that 16% reservation is not justifiable and ruled that reservation should not exceed 12% in employment and 13% in education as recommended by the State Backward Commission. On September 9, 2020, a three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court referred the cases to a larger Bench to determine the issue whether State Government has the power to declare a class as Socially and Economically Backward after the Constitution (102nd) amendment.While referring the case to larger bench, the 3-judge bench also stayed the operation of Maratha reservations.

Woman holding gun and baby makes bomb threat at California Easter services: Police

first_imgFedorovekb/iStock(SAN DIEGO) — A woman allegedly wielding an unloaded gun in one hand and holding a baby in the other interrupted an Easter service at a Southern California church by shouting bomb threats before she was detained by worshippers, police said.The incident occurred around noon on Sunday at the Tsidkenu Church, a non-denominational church, in the San Diego suburb of Clairemont, according to the San Diego Police Department.The suspect, Anna Conkey, 31, was taken into custody and booked at the San Diego County jail on suspicion of making criminal threats and displaying a handgun in a threatening manner, police said.The incident unfolded just hours after suicide bombers killed nearly 300 people in a series of coordinated explosions at churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka, more than 9,000 miles away.NBC station KNSD-TV in San Diego reported that Conkey had worked for the station as a freelance producer and intern.Police said the congregation of the Tsidkenu Church, which uses an auditorium at a public school for Sunday services, was wrapping up Easter services when Conkey walked in holding a gun and a 10-month-old baby.“The female walked up on stage and made threats that she was going to blow up the church while waving the handgun,” San Diego police said in a statement.Before police officers arrived at the church, members of the congregation disarmed the women, according to the police statement.“We were just about to finish up our service and a lady came in with a gun and started talking delusional stuff and just kind of kept it [the gun] at the ground, didn’t really have a finger in it and she had an infant baby with her,” Ronald Farmer, a member of the congregation, told OnScene TV. “So my first thought was get my family out of there and I went back in to just make sure if everything happened that there were enough men around that the situation could be controlled.”Another member of the church, who only wanted to be identified as Craig, said that he managed to take the gun away from the women while other church-goers tackled her.Church member, David Michael Miller, a military serviceman, said the woman at one point pointed the gun at the baby.“She starts talking all this craziness about the rapture not being real and everyone’s going to hell and so everyone started praying and then they all ushered out of the service and the leaders and the pastor were up front and they were trying to talk her down,” Miller told OnScene TV. “I was just slowly approaching watching them talk her down. And she was just being very apprehensive, pointing the gun at them, pointing the gun at her baby, saying, ‘Don’t come any closer. Don’t come any closer.’”He said that after Craig grabbed the gun from Conkey, a couple of other men tackled her.“We got the baby away from her,” Miller said. “A few minutes after that, the cops came in. She was trying to run away or something so a cop tackled her through a row of chairs.”Police said the gun Conkey was allegedly armed with was not loaded.Conkey’s baby was not harmed and was placed in protective custody, police said. An investigation led police to Conkey’s 5-year-old daughter at an undisclosed location and she was placed into protective custody, police said.“She just wanted attention, she wanted a conversation, she wanted to say all this stuff,” Ben Wisan, the pastor of the church, told On Scene TV. “We knew who she was, she had been coming on and off for a little bit of time and we’d been praying for her because we wanted to see her set free. There was a lot of stuff bugging her.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
