Rugby World Cup Daily – Nearly there

first_imgThursday Sep 8, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Nearly there If you’re in New Zealand, or on that time zone, today is the day. If not, it’s just a few hours of sleep then an exciting morning for the rest of us, as we’ve got New Zealand vs Tonga to look forward to. In today’s RWC Daily, the first round is previewed. Before that though, there is the usual opening ceremony, which lets be honest, can be a bore on occasion. It’s all about kick off and nobody is really that bothered about all the colour, dancing, and displays of local culture. Having said that, at times we can be blown away by what a host nation puts on, so it’ll be interesting to see what Eden Park has in store.Pool B is featured in the video too, as Scotland face Romania and England take on Argentina, the latter of which should be a fascinating game. For now though it’s all about the opening match, as Tonga have been preparing to face the almighty AB’s in their own backyard.There’s a large Tongan following in New Zealand though, so the small nation will be looking to give the hosts a real battle, especially up front where they bring a lot of European experience to the pack.The man with the weight of a nation on his shoulders, Richie McCaw, has final say as he talks about great  expectations. In is third and no doubt final World Cup, McCaw will be doing everthing in his power to ensure that his beloved countrymen aren’t disappointed come October 23rd. On a sidenote, our new Rugbydump App is live and racking up the downloads.

Karachi-based radio station closed for broadcasting BBC earthquake programme

first_img Organisation PakistanAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more News Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder The closure of Karachi-based radio station Mast FM 103 for retransmitting a BBC World Service programme in Urdu about Pakistan’s recent earthquake was a “disproportionate” sanction, Reporters Without Borders said today, calling on the authorities to allow the station to resume broadcasting at once.The press freedom organisation also condemned the fact that two Pakistani satellite TV stations, Rang and Vibe, have been threatened with sanctions if they do not stop carrying “foreign programmes.”“It is true these radio and TV stations do not have appropriate licences but all they did was exercise their right to inform,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By preventing the Pakistani media from using quality news programmes, the regulatory authorities are applying archaic regulations without considering listeners’ and viewers’ interests.”Police in the southern city of Karachi seized Mast FM 103’s transmitter and antennae on 14 November. Accompanied by representatives of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), police also raided the station’s studios and closed them down. The daily newspaper Dawn quoted a journalist as saying the police insulted several of the station’s employees.The authorities said they acted after the station retransmitted a special programmme on the recent earthquake in northern Pakistan that had been produced by the Urdu-language section of the BBC World Service.We have already taken measures against the station in the past for broadcasting foreign programmes,” Dawn quoted a PEMRA official as saying. “But the management went to the courts and the high court’s orders were clear – no radio station may broadcast this kind of programme. The station broke the law and we had to close it.”The BBC World Service was forced in March to put an end to the re-transmission of its Urdu-language news bulletins by Mast FM 103 in Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Faisalabad. The PEMRA had threatened the station with sanctions at the time.

Fate of Swing States In 2017 Election May Come Down to Housing Market

first_img Related Articles Home / Daily Dose / Fate of Swing States In 2017 Election May Come Down to Housing Market  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, News Fate of Swing States In 2017 Election May Come Down to Housing Market States that are battlegrounds for Republican and Democratic control could potentially see their dominate political party reverse come 2017, according to Daren Blomquist, SVP for ATTOM Data Solutions.Currently, homeowners in Republican-controlled districts are winning seven out of 11 battleground states including Michigan, Ohio, Nevada, and Florida, according to recent data from RealtyTrac. Blomquist says that this trend is in part due to the suburban or rural nature of these states over all.“There are definitely exceptions here, but the cities that are in these states are still very much struggling and not seeing the renaissance that some of the other markets have,” says Blomquist. “The other thing to notice about these battleground states is that unlike nationwide where the Democratic districts are out performing the Republican districts two to one, in many of these states it is a very close battle between the Democratic and Republican districts when it comes to housing returns.”He notes that another hallmark of these states is that many of them were the epicenters of the housing crisis, meaning homeowners are still struggling to gain back the value that was lost during the housing market downturn.“The Democratic districts tend to be more densely populated areas as well as coastal markets, and that’s where we have seen the housing market recovery centered during this housing boom over the last four years,” says Blomquist. “This housing recovery has really been about a return to urban, walkable locations and those areas tend to be Democratic districts in nature.”This trend of battleground states being Republican dominated could reverse though, says Blomquist. “I think you may actually see some of these swing states flip in a sense as that trend takes hold there. In places like Ohio and Michigan where Republicans are beating the Democratic districts only marginally, I would expect to see those areas flip especially as places like Detroit start to experience that renaissance that other cities are seeing across the country.”While this reverse could change the orientation of these states, Blomquist notes that current trends seen nationwide for the housing market are expected to continue for the next four years.“I think the trend toward more urban locations especially for the young buyers is going to continue into the next administration, says Blomquist. “It is fair to say, though, that having a Democratic president in place probably had some influence on the market trends but it’s hard to quantify that, so there will probably be some influence depending on who wins the presidency. I think more importantly, though, is the trend toward going back to the cities and I foresee that continuing for the next four years.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

For some it’s still hard to grasp the reality that Donegal where minutes away from an All Ireland Final. On the positive side it has been the most successful year for the county outside of 1992. The Donegal boss has also been hitting out at those who have been critical of his players and the Donegal style of football. Speaking with Charlie Collins, McGuinness says the new challenge for Donegal is to build for next year and move forward.[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/JIMMCG.mp3[/podcast]center_img Pinterest Twitter By admin – September 6, 2011 Pinterest GAA decision not sitting well with Donegal – Mick McGrath NPHET ‘positive’ on easing restrictions – Donnelly Facebook Three factors driving Donegal housing market – Robinson Google+ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

It would be devastating for the people of Donegal if this road was not built.“Sinn Féin is fully behind this project and we know that the political will exists across the Six Counties to get the road built.“However the concerns of the High Court in Belfast must be addressed and it is important that the coming days are used to convene meetings, look at the issues and ultimately to get this project back on track.”Deputy Doherty said, “It is unthinkable for the people of Donegal that this project would not go ahead. Donegal needs this road both for economic regeneration and for the jobs that will be created during the construction phase of the project.“The environmental concerns of the High Court must be addressed in an urgent manner so that this road can go ahead as planned.”And West Tyrone MLA, Declan McAleer said todays announcement is disappointing  but he is hopeful that the Department of Regional Development can satisfy the concerns raised in the High Court today….[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/dec530.mp3[/podcast] Norths Regional Development Minister to prepare submissions in relation to Habitats Directive in relation to A5 WhatsApplast_img read more
