Across the UK, among the worst-hit areas were Yorkshire, the North East and Northern Ireland, all of which already suffer unemployment rates over nine per cent, and saw big drops in total employment.London, the East and Scotland saw their unemployment rates fall slightly.“The increase in joblessness is a bit of a standout and markets may focus on it as an example of what may happen in 2011,” said Investec analyst Philip Shaw.

Hotshot: Yorkshire Carnegie flanker Josh Bainbridge

first_imgWhat are your immediate aims?To play as many first-team games as I can and gain promotion. We’ve signed a lot of good players. What are your interests outside rugby?I’m in the second year of a part-time degree and do voluntary coaching at Moortown U15 – it’s really good working with the kids. So Josh, when did you start rugby?I joined Guisborough from U10s because a lot of friends played and my grandad used to play. I had a season at U15s for Middlesbrough, then two years at Prince Henry’s Grammar School. When did you join Carnegie?At 15. I got a call on 1 April 2011 asking me to join their academy and my grandad wondered if it might be an April fool! Have you always been a seven?I was a centre but the academy said I had the fundamentals to be a good back-row, so I switched to openside. Andy Rock (academy director) has been a massive influence.Has your game improved a lot playing senior rugby for Carnegie?Yes. One of the biggest factors is being with players of all ages, not just those in your age group. And we had Kevin Sinfield, who you could speak to about anything.You got five tries against Bristol last season…I’d scored two against Doncaster the week before and everyone was joking that it would be amazing if I got a hat-trick at Ashton Gate! It was all down to the forwards as they were lineout drives, but I’m proud of it. Date of birth 17 April 1996.

first_img Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Washington, DC The Rev. Steven Peay named dean and president of Nashotah House The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Father Peay’s undergraduate study of Church History led him toward monastic life, which he entered at Saint Vincent Archabbey (Latrobe, PA) in 1977. Following his first profession of vows he studied for the priesthood and after final vows was ordained deacon in 1981 and priest in 1982. The studies he began in college and pursued in seminary continued following ordination. He returned to Saint Vincent to teach as Assistant Professor of Homiletics and Historical Theology. During his tenure at the seminary he also served as Academic Dean for five years. Leaving monastic life in 1994, he devoted himself to parish work for the next fifteen years in Congregational churches in Wisconsin, while continuing to research, write, and teach in various venues. Father Peay came to Nashotah House as Adjunct Professor of Church History in 2008 and was elected to the faculty in 2010. His orders were received in August 2010, and he is now a priest of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany.Father Peay was married to his wife Julie in 1996 and is the proud stepfather of Jeremy and Matthew. I am completely delighted with the election of Father Peay to be our next Dean and President. He has already shown himself to be an effective leader, pastor, and scholar while a member of the Nashotah House faculty. He is intimately familiar with our operations and will be able to hit the ground running in a seamless transition from the ministry of Bishop Edward Salmon.

A year of Chinese prison mistreatment for RSF laureate

first_img China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison November 24, 2017 – Updated on November 25, 2017 A year of Chinese prison mistreatment for RSF laureate Help by sharing this information ChinaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists CorruptionPredatorsViolenceImprisonedRSF PrizeCitizen-journalistsInternet News News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned for the survival of Huang Qi, a leading civil rights journalist who will complete a year in detention on 28 November and who is being subjected to mistreatment and violence in prison. to go further News ChinaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists CorruptionPredatorsViolenceImprisonedRSF PrizeCitizen-journalistsInternet PHOTO AFP April 27, 2021 Find out morecenter_img China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News The founder of the 64 Tianwang civil rights website and winner of the RSF Press Freedom Prize in 2004, Huang Qi was arrested at his home in Chengdu, in the western province of Sichuan, on 28 November 2016. A year later, he is still detained provisionally in alarming conditions in Mianyang prison.According to his lawyer, Li Jinlin, who was able to visit him on 3 November, the 54-year-old Huang has “lost weight,” complains of being “forced to work four to six hours a day” despite being in poor health, and has been beaten several times. A large bruise testified to the violence.Unlike other detainees, Huang is denied access to medicines, food supplements and other basic supplies that he needs.“Mistreatment and denial of medical care are common practice in Chinese prisons,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia desk. “Evidence of this was seen in he recent deaths of Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo, also an RSF prize winner, and the blogger Yang Tongyan. Both were the victims of cancer left untreated in detention. We urge the Chinese authorities to show humanity by immediately freeing Huang Qi and all other detainees in poor health.”Effects of eight previous years in prisonAs a result of his journalistic work, which has always focused on the victims of the Chinese state apparatus, Huang had already spent a total of eight years in prison, during which he developed heart problems, nephritis and liver cysts.His arrest on 28 November 2016 was apparently prompted by what he had written about Sichuan police violence against local petitioners. Eighteen days after his arrest, he was formally detained on the catch-all charge of “illegally providing state secrets abroad,” which in extreme cases is punishable by death.Other detained Chinese journalists whose lives are in danger include:- Gao Yu, 73, a well-known reporter who was awarded the Plume d’Or de la Liberté in 1995 and UNESCO’s Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize in 1997. She is under house arrest and is being prevented from travelling abroad to seek treatment.- Yiu Mantin, 73, a Hong Kong publisher who is serving a ten-year jail term for trying to publish revelations about President Xi Jinping.- Liu Xia, 56, who is Liu Xiaobo’s widow. The authorities have kept her isolated for the past 10 years.The world’s biggest prison for journalists and civil rights activists, China is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
