(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Bristol 54, Jersey 14Four tries in each half helped Bristol to their biggest points haul in the GKIPA Championship this season at the Memorial Stadium on Sunday. Ross Rennie scored a brace of tries on his debut and Luke Baldwin also touched down on his first outing for the Westcountry outfit. Further tries came from Riki Tipuna, Ross Johnston, Ben Glynn and Luke Eves, to add to a penalty try won by a dominant pack.Debut double for Scot Ross RennieSean Holley was delighted with his side’s performance. “We turned over a lot of ball,” he said, “which shows how we are learning and developing in defence.” This romp takes Bristol into third place with a game in hand.Carnegie Cane the BluesLeeds Carnegie 50, Bedford Blues 6Bedford’s miserable season continues with a six-try thrashing at the hands of Leeds at Headingley on Sunday. Rob Vickerman crossed twice for Carnegie, and Johan Holmes, Ben Hooper and the prolific David Doherty added touchdowns to a penalty try earned by the pack. Bedford, who trailed 28-6 early in the second period, would have served their cause better had Tom Vandermolen and Paul Tupai not been sent to the bin.Below-par Titans take top spotRotherham 16, Moseley 6Mose head coach Kevin Maggs felt his team were unlucky not to take at least a point against promotion chasing Rotherham at Clifton Lane on Saturday. “We’ve improved since we last played Rotherham and gave a good account of ourselves against a side which should finish in the top four,” said Maggs. Jack Roberts scored the only try of the game in the second minute and the GKIPA Championship points machine, Juan Pablo Socini, converted then added three penalties, the last in the final minute cruelly denying Mose a bonus point.Nottingham notch first win in fiveNottingham 15, London Scottish 3 What it is all about: Here are the latest comings, goings and hammer-blowings in the competitive ChampionshipBy Richard GraingerIt’s all change at the top and tight at the bottom of the GKIPA Championship with London Welsh slipping to a third defeat and bottom placed Ealing closing the gap with Jersey to two points.Plymouth punish erratic ExilesPlymouth Albion 36, London Welsh 15Albion recorded their first home win in any competition this season with a resounding five-try defeat of the Exiles to knock them off top spot at Brickfields on Saturday. Plymouth, who have acquired a reputation for letting commanding leads slip, were in no mood to relinquish their stranglehold and defended an interval lead of 28-15 with gusto after the break. The hosts, who had been on the wrong end of four tight home defeats, had secured the bonus point by half time with a brace of tries from Tom Bowen and one each from Toby Howley-Berridge, and Sam Matavesi.Seb-ra crossing: Seb Stegmann scoredNathan Trevett and Seb Stegmann crossed for the visitors in the first period but out-of sorts Exiles were unable to add to their score in the second half. Declan Cusack nudged Albion further towards victory with a penalty after the break, and Chris Elder gilded the lily with a fine individual try in the last minute.Energised Ealing eyeing safetyCornish Pirates 18, Ealing Trailfinders 18Hopes of a play-off place for the Cornishmen are fading fast as the Pirates failed to secure maximum points against the division’s bottom side at the Mennaye Field on Sunday.But Ealing will see this as two points lost having led18-11 with five minutes to go, thanks to two tries from Phil Chesters and one from Andrew Henderson. This leaves them just two points behind Jersey, and with home ties against three of the four sides above them to come, they now look a good bet to secure a second Championship season at Jersey’s expense.“The improvement each game is getting bigger and bigger,” said Ealing scrum half Morgan Thompson, “and with games like Leeds and London Welsh coming up we need that consistency.”With time running out, Pirates’ scrum-half Kyle Moyle touched down in the corner and Kieran Hallett converted from the touchline to tie the score and spoil a perfect afternoon for the Londoners.Bristol bank biggest league win Nottingham, who have been flirting with the relegation spot for most of this season, recorded their first win in five outings thanks to five first-half penalties from Matthew Jarvis in reply to two from Dan Newton.In a dour game played in atrocious conditions, the Green and Whites defence denied the Exiles any daylight and the game drifted into stalemate with neither side able to score in the second period.last_img read more

Rally protests Israeli occupation of Palestine

first_imgPalestinians resist Israeli forces denying them access to al-Aqsa mosque.Washington, D.C. — A crowd of over 200 people, organized by American Muslims for Palestine, gathered around the Israeli Embassy in Washington on July 28 to protest the Israeli occupation of Palestine.Members of the Jewish community, Christians and Muslims all joined together in solidarity in response to recent attacks imposed on the Palestinian people by Israeli troops.For more than two weeks, Israel had imposed restrictions on Palestinians seeking access to the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Palestinian worshippers were unlawfully prohibited access to their place of worship by the Israeli government.Just the day before the demonstration in Washington, “Israeli forces stormed into the masjid [mosque], firing rubber-tipped bullets, and injuring close to 100 worshippers,” said Kristin Szremski, director of media and communications for the AMP.Individuals of both the Jewish and Muslim communities were enraged upon learning of these and other unjust occurrences against the Palestinian people. These include a bill before Congress that would make boycotts against Israel and Israeli goods illegal and punishable by up to 20 years in prison.In response to these issues, the AMP organized the July 28 demonstration with the goal of “educating the public and media about Palestine and forwarding the Palestinian narrative, so that the media and the people start getting the full story,” said Szremski about AMP’s overall mission.During the demonstration, short speeches were given by members of the AMP and other organizations. Afterward, over 200 Muslim men, women and children joined together despite harsh weather conditions for their congregational Friday prayer. After the prayer ended, the crowd began to passionately chant in protest against the Israeli occupation, demanding justice for Palestine.Even as the demonstration was taking place, the Israeli government announced it was finally ending its restrictions on the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The following day, thousands of Palestinians crowded into the mosque in East Jerusalem for noon prayers.Al-Jazeera reported July 30 that over the two weeks: “Israeli forces often met protesters with rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas, and stun grenades. In some areas, live rounds were also used, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.“At least six Palestinians were killed during the two weeks of protests across occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and at least four were killed in alleged attacks on Israeli forces.“According to the Red Crescent, more than 1,300 Palestinians have been injured during demonstrations since July 14.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Medford’s jersey was retired in a pre-game ceremony during the last game of the tournament.Tournament organizers hope to increase the number of participating teams and the value of the scholarship awards in coming years. Ultimately, they said they hope to attract teams from all around the country.They said they want to recognize Medford’s selfless character.“He’s an unbelievable guy, I mean great baseball player but an even better person,” said head coach Darrell Preston. “Drew made me a better coach over the last four years, he made us all great people,” he said.Junior pitcher Matthew Urban said Medford taught him that it doesn’t take velocity to be a good pitcher, it takes placement.“I’ll always remember what Drew told me during playoffs,” said Urban. “It was that nervous pitchers are the worst pitchers because if you’re nervous, you get tense and you can’t play.”Zack Shaw, a freshman at Texas State University and Paschal Baseball alumni, played with Medford in high school. Shaw said he was the fiercest competitor he’s ever played with in his life.“The kid had the biggest heart in the world and he brought up everyone with him. It wasn’t that we were following him, he wanted us to be even with him,” Shaw said. “If our heart wasn’t in it, he was going to be on us the entire time. He was the leader of this team and he was the heart of this team.”The Paschal players all wore the number 12, Medford’s number, on their hats.

Reporters Without Borders concerned about bill before Senate

first_img News Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world to go further November 19, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today about a bill before the Argentine Senate that would impose jail sentences for unauthorised broadcasting. “There is nothing wrong with regulating radio and TV operations, but under no circumstances can exercising the right to inform the public be treated as a criminal offence,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Senate president Juan Carlos Maqueda. “We ask you to see that no provision for jail sentences features in the final version of the bill and that the bill is passed in an open manner.”The measure was proposed because radio broadcasts interfered with the automatic landing system at Buenos Aires airport. Although this was caused by legally-operating radio stations, Reporters Without Borders is alarmed that the bill covers stations that may have nothing to do with this situation. Ménard asked that the communications and freedom of expression committees of parliament consider the bill and that civil society groups be consulted.The proposed amendment to the criminal code conflicts with the UN document adopted in January 2000 in which the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression said clearly that imprisonment for peacefully expressing an opinion is a serious violation of human rights. The measure before the Senate would punish the illegal use of radio frequencies and consists of three new articles, including Article 197b which provides for up to two years in jail for those responsible for illegal radio and TV broadcasting. The airport landing system was disturbed several times, putting planes and passengers at risk. They were initially blamed on “unauthorised” radio broadcasts but authorised stations were also found to be involved, stations that continued broadcasting despite warnings from the national communications commission. The bill was debated by Parliament last October, but the neither the relevant parliamentary committees nor representatives of the sectors concerned were consulted.

ARE YOU FORFEITING PATENT PROTECTION?

first_imgPITCH PERFECT–WHEN YOU PITCH YOUR IDEA TO POTENTIAL INVESTORS?December 20, 2017 by Rick Martin FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Since the debut of Shark Tank in 2009, a number of similar contests and competitions involving entrepreneurs publicly “pitching” their idea or invention to a group of people have arisen across the country. The general premise is that a select number of entrepreneurs have a limited amount of time (say 3 minutes) to pitch their idea to those in attendance. At the end of the evening a panel, or in some cases all those in attendance, vote for their favorite and awards are given for the best pitches. In some cases, seed money is awarded to the winning entrepreneurs to help move their project forward.For the entrepreneur, making such a public pitch before filing an application for patent protection is potentially devastating. Securing patent protection for an invention provides a huge competitive advantage to a start-up – the ability to exclude all others from making, using, importing, selling or offering to sell your patented invention for up to 20 years. In many cases, without proper patent protection, the barriers to entering the market are so low that good ideas can be legally copied by those with market influence leaving the entrepreneur/inventor empty handed. The best way to avoid such a devastating loss – file at least a provisional patent application that provides “full disclosure” of your invention prior to making your pitch.Prior to the America Invents Act (AIA), which took effect on March 13, 2013, inventors had a one-year grace period after a public disclosure to file their application for patent in the United States before that disclosure would be considered to be prior art barring issuance of a patent. The biggest change in the AIA was going from a “first to invent” system to a “first to file” system. Accordingly, if two patent applications are filed after March 13, 2013 claiming the same invention, the USPTO does not consider who was the first to “invent”, but rather who won the race to the Patent Office by filing first. An inventor who publicly pitches an idea before filing for patent protection runs the risk that someone in the audience will take that idea, modify or expand on it, and file for patent protection first, effectively precluding the pitching inventor from securing patent protection.Another potential problem that may arise when an inventor pitches before filing is the subsequent re-disclosure of the invention by a third party. Consider the following common scenario – Inventor discloses her idea at a Pitch Competition on December 22, 2016. A third party who was in attendance presents his “improvement” to the original pitch to potential investors on July 10, 2017. Inventor files her provisional application on December 21, 2017. One would think that the one-year grace period clearly applies under these circumstances. However, the answer, as is often the case in the law, is not so clear cut.Under the AIA, the inventor’s ability to overcome the July 10, 2017 third party prior art is significantly limited. First, in order to avoid the third party prior art, the inventor must first prove that the third party did indeed obtain the information form the inventor. If third party was in attendance at the December 22, 2016 presentation, proof of that may not be too difficult. However, as is often the case, the third party may have received the information indirectly such as from another person who was in attendance. As the link to the original presentation becomes more distant, it becomes more difficult to prove the third party’s disclosure was obtained from the inventor. If such a situation arises, affidavits must be prepared and filed with the USPTO during the prosecution of the patent application, adding significant time and cost to the process of obtaining a patent.All of this can be avoided by simply filing an “appropriate” provisional application before the pitch is made. For the application to be “appropriate”, it must include a written description that enables a person of ordinary skill in the art to make and use the invention. Thus, while a provisional application can be a useful tool for establishing an early filing date, simply filing academic papers, white papers, inventor notes or anything else that may be lying around does not necessarily provide protection. Therefore, when filing a provisional application, it is a good idea to seek the assistance of a registered patent attorney or agent who is experienced and familiar with the written description requirement of the USPTO.To further complicate the one-year grace period, it can often times be difficult to establish just exactly when the grace period begins. Clearly, pitching your invention at a pitch completion attended by the public would trigger the start of the grace period. But looking deeper, was there some other activity that you engaged in earlier that may have triggered an earlier start to the grace period? Has there been another earlier “public” disclosure of the invention or an “offer to sell” the invention? There are a variety of risks associated with reliance on the one-year grace period that make it easy for an inventor to misjudge the actual beginning and end dates of the grace period.Lastly, if you have global aspirations for your invention (which you should), most other countries have no such grace period, and such prior public disclosures are considered to be an “absolute bar” to obtaining patent protection. Australia and Canada operate under a 12-month grace period similar to the United States. Japan, Europe and the UK operate under a 6-month grace period, but under very limited circumstances. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) maintains a  for a number of countries throughout the world. The filing of an appropriate US provisional application prior to any public disclosure as discussed above effectively gives a one-year grace period from the date of filing to the inventor for purposes of pursuing foreign patents. A knowledgeable patent attorney will be able to devise a filing strategy to best fit the needs of any inventor.Are you about to pitch your idea to potential investors and/or the public in a pitch competition and concerned about protecting your patent rights?
