WATCH: The best of the young halfbacks tasked with turning French hopes around

first_imgTuesday Feb 19, 2019 WATCH: The best of the young halfbacks tasked with turning French hopes around France will be entering a new era when they face Scotland on Saturday, as Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack will start as halfbacks for the first time together.ADVERTISEMENTThe Toulouse duo replace Morgan Parra and Camille Lopez, who have both been critical of Jacques Brunel after their humbling loss to England at Twickenham in round two.Dupont has been knocking on the door to start for France for a long time, and while he has faced a lot of competition from Parra and Baptiste Serin, his cameo against England was an indication of what he can bring to Les Bleus.In 34 minutes he managed to make five clean breaks, beat nine defenders and offload four times; the prospect of him starting alongside Ntamack will excite French fans as this is the future.This is what the fans can expect from the 22-year-old Dupont:Saturday will also be the first game in which Ntamack has started at fly-half for France. The 19-year-old is equally as comfortable playing at inside centre as he is as an outside half, and Brunel will be hoping that he can recreate some of the magic that Toulouse have created this season.ADVERTISEMENTThe French giants currently sit top of the Top 14, and Dupont and Ntamack have been major catalysts in their revival.The teenager was part of the France under-20 team that won the World Championship last year and is seen by many as one of the faces of this new wave of talent that is coming through in France.This is what Ntamack has to offer:ADVERTISEMENTAnother bonus to France’s team is the inclusion of Thomas Ramos at fullback. Firstly, this will please French fans as Brunel is largely playing players in their correct positions.The makeshift back three was majorly exposed against England, and subsequently, Gaël Fickou has reverted back to centre and Yoann Huget returns to the wing.The 23-year-old Ramos is also part of this young cohort of Toulouse players, and is now part of a very promising French backline, with Dupont, Ntamack, Fickou and Damian Penaud all being under 25.Capable of playing as a fly-half as well, Ramos will offer ball playing options to the French team, and could help usher in a new era.France15 Thomas Ramos, 14 Damien Penaud, 13 Mathieu Bastareaud, 12 Gael Fickou, 11 Yoann Huget, 10 Romain Ntamack, 9 Antoine Dupont, 8 Louis Picamoles, 7 Arthur Iturria, 6 Wenceslas Lauret, 5 Felix Lambey, 4 Sebastien Vahaamahina, 3 Demba Bamba, 2 Guilhem Guirado (captain), 1 Jefferson PoirotSubstitutes: 16 Camille Chat, 17 Etienne Falgoux, 18 Dorian Aldegheri, 19 Paul Willemse, 20 Gregory Alldritt, 21 Baptiste Serin, 22 Anthony Belleau, 23 Maxime Medard Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution? An open letter to revolutionaries everywhere

first_imgLarry HOlmesRevolutionary greetings to all, on the centennial of the Russian Revolution.The 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution may have different meanings for many of us across the world, based on our age, background and political experiences. That’s understandable.Why is this such an important anniversary?The 1917 revolution, referred to sometimes as the October Revolution, and the establishment of the first socialist country, the Soviet Union, was a new beginning, not just for Russia, but for the entire world. The conditions for the revolution grew out of the suffering that the imperialist war subjected the masses of Russia and all of Europe to. Revolutionaries in Russia hoped that their revolution would spread to Europe. That did not happen.  Still the Russian Revolution opened up a century of struggle for socialism, for revolution and for solidarity with the national liberation struggles throughout Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Middle East. It was the precursor to the Chinese and Cuban revolutions,  other revolutions, and all of the chapters of a century of worldwide class struggle against capitalism and all forms of oppression. The Russian Revolution convinced millions of people in every part of the world that another world is possible.  The capitalist ruling class will mark this anniversary by loudly reminding us that the Soviet Union is no more, and that this is proof that communism failed and capitalism prevailed.  In a sense, all who believe that history has not ended, and that there has to be an alternative to capitalism, will be put on trial this anniversary by the ruling class.It is unlikely that the capitalists will tell the truth about how much they hated and feared the revolution from the very beginning, and how the idea that workers and peasants would dare to rise up against the ruling class and free themselves from their masters horrified them. Nor are they likely to mention that world imperialism, led by U.S. imperialism, dedicated itself to crushing the Soviet Union in one way or another and spared no effort economically, militarily, covertly and overtly in accomplishing this.Why is the Soviet Union no more? Like Workers World Party, most political tendencies in the movement have their own ideas about that.It is a discussion that is inexhaustible. It’s a discussion we should have, even if it leads to arguments, as long as we agree not to let the arguing get in the way of the work we must do going forward. Which brings us to our main point.How should we use this anniversary?The capitalists pray that the fight for socialist revolution ended with the Soviet Union. It is up to us and millions like us, to affirm that it did not, and that it must not. This is not dreaming; it is cold, calculating realism.We believe that capitalism has reached an unprecedented stage in the process of dying. Any hope that capitalism can be reformed and made more humane, is also dying as it surely must.From the perspective of the working-class movement and the struggle of the oppressed, ultimately this is a reality that can’t be ignored much longer. This reality pushes the class struggle and the global struggle against capitalism into a new phase.The capitalists can no longer pretend that their system can meet the needs of the people. All of the lies and illusions about the wonders of capitalism are crashing, in prelude to the system itself crashing.For the oppressed, all the system has to offer are deportations, prison, death by cops, Muslim bans, occupation and war, and the way Trump is treating the devastated people of Puerto Rico.  Some sections of the working class used to feel secure before globalization, automation, austerity, union busting, bank foreclosures and pauperization. Now, all that capitalism has to offer them is white supremacy, “make American great,” misogyny, anti-LGBTQ bigotry and an opioid epidemic.In more and more ways, capitalism is an existential threat to all life.How much time do we have before capitalism destroys the environment, making the planet uninhabitable?When an empire is falling apart, as the U.S. imperialist empire is, it is more, not less tempting to use its remaining advantage, military might. The question is not if, but when and where the next U.S. war will be? Will it be against Iran? Will it be against Venezuela? Will it be somewhere in Africa, where the Pentagon has thousands of troops in at least 53 countries? Or, will it be against Peoples Korea, which would really be against both Koreas and China, making it a third world war? How much longer can we endure such a threat?A new beginning for revolutionary struggle & higher level of unityWe propose that every group and every individual that considers themselves to be revolutionaries and in the service of the workers and oppressed of the world, including Workers World Party, embrace the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution as a time to rededicate ourselves, not only to fighting capitalism every day, but to bringing it to an end at the earliest possible time, and replacing it with socialism.Furthermore, we propose that we all commit ourselves to achieving a higher level of revolutionary unity in the struggle. The form that this unity might take is not a question that needs to be answered here. The program, basis and plan of action for such unity are questions that we can answer together if there is the understanding and the will to do so. We will all need to reassess whether or not we are holding on to conceptions, attitudes or any baggage that might be a barrier to a higher level of revolutionary unity. It’s the right time to do that.An immediate program & a maximum oneAs much as we’d like to, we cannot predict capitalism’s imminent demise. Revolution, as a practical task in the U.S., is not yet on the table. The masses will be fighting under capitalism indefinitely for their basic needs and against repression, against all of the mounting attacks and for the right to organize.  Revolutionaries can’t be distant from or above these struggles; they must be in them. Revolutionaries have to work with progressive forces knowing that some of these forces will become revolutionary, while others never will.We will be constantly fighting the tendency within the larger movement to be pulled in to the electoral appeals of the capitalist parties. This is all the more reason why, as revolutionaries, we need both an immediate perspective and a maximum one. There must be an end game. However long it takes, we must build an independent, mass revolutionary resistance able to take down capitalism.Trump: a symptom of the crisisTrump is a symptom of the severity of the capitalist crisis and of the political and economic explosions that are ahead of us.  Trump, with a section of the ruling class behind him, has launched a pre-emptive strike against the prospect of class unity in the coming struggle against capitalism. His goal is to smash the working class into a thousand pieces by attacking its most oppressed sections. We must prevent that from happening at all cost. Fighting the white supremacists and neofascist forces that Trump has empowered is our number one task at this momentIt is critical to understand that Trump didn’t win because of “identity politics,” which is a phrase that really means the oppressed. The struggles of Black, Brown and Indigenous peoples, or Muslims, immigrants, women, the disabled and LGBTQ people, are not responsible for Trump. And neither is Russia. The crises of U.S. imperialism and capitalism, plus racism and the Democratic Party’s abandonment of the entire working class, are to blame.Almost 100 years ago the communist movement, with the guidance of Vladimir Lenin, changed its main slogan from “Workers of the world unite” to “Workers and oppressed peoples of the world unite.” This change meant that the best revolutionaries in the working-class movement understood that to weaken imperialism, there would have to be solidarity between the workers of the oppressor countries and the people of the oppressed nations.The circumstances and conditions of the struggles of oppressed peoples may be different than they were in Lenin’s time. Oppressed people may have different demands and they may be more intertwined with the workers’ struggle. But they remain extensions of the struggle for national liberation and self-determination.The struggles of oppressed peoples, including women, LGBTQ people and the disabled, are not secondary struggles. They are working-class struggles and they are central to the working-class movement. If our mission is to prevent Trump and the ruling class from smashing working-class solidarity into 10,000 pieces, then first and foremost we have to stand with and defend the most oppressed.Re-empowering the revolutionary perspectiveThe capitalist ruling class is not going to allow itself to be voted out. We cannot live in denial of this fact.  The urgency of this truth must move us all to act.We cannot substitute ourselves for the masses, as tempting as that is sometimes. Nothing can be achieved without the people. We understand that our class must overcome many weaknesses. But we have confidence that it will. It is entirely possible that a time may come when the masses are ready to move and it is the revolutionaries who are not ready, because being ready was not their perspective.When the great revolutionary leader Lenin returned to Russia from exile in Switzerland in April of 1917, many of his comrades told him that the conditions in Russia made a socialist revolution impossible. Fortunately, he convinced them that they were mistaken.Let’s make the anniversary of October 1917 the occasion to restart, in a serious and meaningful way, the perspective of socialist revolution. It’s a perspective that has been far too weak for far too long.This anniversary is a good time to remind the world that there is a future beyond this terrible system. Moreover, that future is not another 100 years away. People who are alive today will help bury capitalism in the graveyard of history.Youth are rising upThere are promising signs. Capitalism is more and more hated with every passing hour. Amongst the youths of the world, socialism is more popular than capitalism.And many of these youths are rising up. They are the ranks of Black Lives Matter, of the immigrant rights movement and of Antifa. They are shutting down white supremacist speakers, pulling down racist statues, and fighting fascism and white supremacy. Young militants are also starting to show that they understand the need to engage and learn from wider sections of the working class.Women and LGBTQ people are visible in the leadership of the rebellion. This bodes well for the future. It is a sign of the transformation of the working class. It’s revolutionary and it must go forward and be defended.Solidarity is so importantCapitalism has always threatened the health of the masses. Now that the system is in an advanced state of decay, its existence is a daily assault on every aspect of our well being, our identities and our social relationships. We must work deliberately to build a culture of solidarity as part of the struggle and as a necessity for our very survival.Inspiration from Che’s wordsThis month also marks the 50th anniversary of Che Guevara’s martyrdom. Che once said that “at the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality.”May Che’s words inspire us all to take a step forward into the future. Happy anniversary comrades!Signed,Larry Holmes, First Secretary of Workers World PartyFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Purdue Economist says U.S. Unlikely to Dominate Future Corn Exports

first_img SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Economist says U.S. Unlikely to Dominate Future Corn Exports Facebook Twitter Purdue Economist says U.S. Unlikely to Dominate Future Corn Exports The United States remains the world’s corn export king, although its empire is shrinking, says a Purdue University agricultural economist.Foreign nations that previously relied on the U.S. for corn are growing more of their own or buying from other producing countries, said Philip Abbott. He predicted the trend will continue even if market conditions improve and U.S. corn production increases.“The U.S. has historically been a very important part of the international corn market,” Abbott said. “Prior to the 2007-08 food crisis and spike in commodity prices, the U.S. exported well over half the amount of corn that entered international markets. Since then, the high prices have caused the rest of the world to expand their production and become more self-sufficient.“Even if we get bigger corn crops in the future, it’s likely that the demand in foreign markets will not soon recover to the level that it once reached.”U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics bear that out. In the 2007-08 marketing year, the U.S. exported 2.4 billion bushels of corn. The USDA estimates just 1.1 billion bushels of U.S. corn will be exported in the 2012-13 marketing year.What has happened to U.S. corn exports, and why might the U.S. not claim 50 percent of future world corn markets? There are a few reasons, Abbott said.First, ethanol. The federal Renewable Fuel Standard mandates that gasoline sold in the U.S. be blended with ethanol. This year, the law requires oil companies blend 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol with the gasoline they produce. Next year, the blending requirement increases to 13.8 billion gallons.Corn is the primary feedstock of ethanol, and 5.5 billion bushels of U.S. corn were used for that purpose in 2011-12.“Roughly 40 percent of the corn that’s produced in this country is used in ethanol, although some of it is later used as distillers grain for livestock feed,” Abbott said. “That’s up from about 10-12 percent five years ago. The amount of corn that makes up the increase is more than we export.”Because the law requires that ethanol be produced, there is less corn available for other non-ethanol users, including foreign buyers and U.S. livestock producers. The high demand for corn, coupled with the partially regulated market, has pushed corn prices higher.Secondly, the U.S. has not kept up with many other nations that have significantly increased their corn acreage. Although U.S. farmers have shifted acreage away from other crops and into corn, competing nations and customers have significantly increased their area planted.“We haven’t expanded overall planted area like the rest of the world. Our acreage is basically flat,” Abbott said.Since the late 1990s, South America has boosted crop acreage 53 percent. The nations that make up the former Soviet Union are growing crops on 24 percent more acres, with acreage up 13.4 percent in sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania. By contrast, crop acreage in the European Union is off 4 percent.U.S. corn exports were further hurt by the summer drought. According to the USDA, domestic corn production is expected to be down 13 percent from 2011, at 10.7 billion bushels. That would represent the lowest corn production volume since 2006.For those reasons, the outlook for U.S. corn exports going forward is less positive than a few years ago, Abbott said.“We’ve tried to accommodate the export markets by working to increase production, but we haven’t managed to do that,” he said. “We’ve had to keep feed use flat and watch exports shrink.“All the hard work we did to build export markets has been hurt by the high commodity prices of the last four or five years. As a result, the world has figured out ways to meet their own needs. And with a couple of exceptions like China buying more soybeans, we’re probably going to see weaker export demand in the future.”Source: Purdue Ag Communications By Andy Eubank – Nov 19, 2012 Facebook Twitter Previous articleRoyal DSM Becomes Newest Growth Energy MemberNext articleVerizon Wireless Expands 4g Lte Network In Southern Indiana Andy Eubanklast_img read more

US – FBI renders access to information more difficult

first_img RSF_en News News Help by sharing this information to go further WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Follow the news on United States On February 6, the FBI announced that it would no longer accept any FOIA requests by email as of March 1st, but still allow requests by fax, snail mail, and an online portal for a small number of requests that met additional requirements. These conditions, such as limiting requests to one per day and one per submission, and restricting the length of requests to 3,000 characters, are not actually required by law. FOIA is an important tool used by both journalists and the public to release government documents. One of the more notable examples of the tool’s success was when a VICE News reporter used FOIA to request all of Hillary Clinton’s emails from her time as Secretary of State. What resulted was the discovery that she had in fact used a private and unsecure email server for official government business during that time. Though the FBI declared the following day it would lift all additional restrictions for online portal submissions, the switch from email submissions to fax, snail mail or online portal submissions will still make it more difficult for citizens to access information. Adam Marshall, an attorney who specializes in FOIA at the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP) told RSF that “the FBI is one of the more difficult agencies to deal with when it comes to FOIA requests. They are quite opaque.” Nate Jones, Director of the FOIA project at the National Security Archive, echoes that assessment. “This is one of a long string of instances where the FBI has made it hard for the public to access information on its activities,” he said. According to Jones, it’s not enough that the FBI removed the initial restrictions to submissions via their online portal. “To eliminate the most efficient avenue that the public has used to request information is unacceptable,” Jones told RSF, especially since data shows the portal is a much less effective method than email. Jones told RSF that the FBI is not alone in restricting FOIA requests. Both the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Department of Defense (DOD) Inspector General’s office have started to restrict email submissions as well. “Given the power of FOIA requests to shed light on the activities of government agencies and their employees, we are concerned that the FBI’s changes to how they will accept requests for information will further complicate the process and negatively impact government transparency,” said Margaux Ewen, Advocacy and Communications Director for RSF North America.
