Dimitri Yachvili carded for swinging arm on Delon Armitage

first_imgWednesday Sep 11, 2013 Dimitri Yachvili carded for swinging arm on Delon Armitage Biarritz scrumhalf Dimitri Yachvili was yellow carded for dangerous high tackle against Toulon in the Top 14 this past weekend. Delon Armitage, who we have seen dish out a few of his own in the last few years, was unlucky to be on the receiving end. Armitage wasn’t badly injured by it but he did stay down for a while, clearly shaken by the swinging forearm to the face. Yachvilli received his marching orders, even though he didn’t look too pleased.Both are highly competitive characters, so when Armitage broke and was only just caught by Zee Ngwenya, Yachvili made sure he was there to put in a hit. Unfortunately it was in the face.Armitage hasn’t been too popular with fans in France, particularly after the hand gesture incident with Brock James in the Heineken Cup final. You can actually hear a bit of a boo and some whistles when he set off with the ball at the start of this clip.Some in the crowd also probably felt he was milking it, but after seeing the replays of Yachvili’s tackle, it’s no surprise that the former England fullback stayed down.View the Related Posts for more videos featuring the two colourful charters over the yearsTime: 2:06Credit: parque-toulon.comADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Additional five-year jail term for Bahraini blogger Nabeel Rajab

March 17, 2021 Find out more Bahrain’s high court convicted Rajab of offending Saudi Arabia, which has been fighting Yemen’s Houthis since 2015 with the support of Bahrain and other allies, and of insulting the Bahraini interior ministry by reporting criticism of cases of torture in Bahrain’s Jaw prison. Rajab, who is also president of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, is already serving a two-year jail sentence, which he received last July on a charge of “spreading rumours and false information” for criticizing the Bahraini authorities in TV interviews. “We condemn this unjustified sentence and call for Nabeel Rajab’s immediate release,” RSF said. “We are appalled by the way the Bahraini authorities are persecuting a man whose only crime has been to use his right to free speech to draw attention to human rights violations.” Rajab has been arrested a total of six times since 2011. His health has suffered and he has been hospitalized several times during his many spells in prison. He was released under a royal pardon for “health reasons” in July 2015 but was arrested again in June 2016 and has been held ever since. According to RSF’s “barometer,” a total of 15 journalists and citizen-journalists are currently detained in Bahrain in connection with the provision of news and information. A small Gulf state that hosts the US Fifth Fleet, Bahrain saw a wave of protests in 2011 that prompted allegations that Iran was backing an attempt to topple the government. This led to a crackdown on dissent and an increase in censorship, which has been reinforced this year in the run-up to elections. Bahrain is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

The Pasadena- area non-profits receiving the thousand dollar grants were: Elizabeth House, Five Acres, Friends Outside, Hillsides, Eaton Canyon Foundation, Impact House, the Treasure Little Children Foundation and the Flintridge Center. Each used the monies received to purchase toys, books, and gifts to create special holiday experiences for their recipients.Founded by PCF’s late Executive Director Ginger Krueger and her daughter Dr. Lisa Krueger, the Yes Virginia Fund was organized as a multi-generational effort so that no child in the community would go without during the holidays.PCF Executive Director Jennifer DeVoll noted, “The Yes Virginia Fund is a permanently-endowed fund of the Pasadena Community Foundation ensuring that this holiday effort will continue for generations to come. Over the past 19 years, it has distributed over $230,000 to non-profits serving low-income families.”This year the Fund helped Elizabeth House, which provides shelter and support to homeless pregnant women, purchase gifts for a “family reunion” party. The Fund additionally helped Friends Outside buy gifts for children whose family members are incarcerated as well as helping residents of Impact House, a drug rehabilitation program, buy presents for their children.Impact House Executive Director Jim Stillwell expressed thanks stating, “This project is a vital step in the healing of the family of an addict. Many times we have found this to be a man or woman’s first experience in celebrating the holidays with their children.”The “Yes Virginia Fund” is named for an editorial by eight-year old Virginia O’Hanlon that appeared in the New York Sun on September 21, 1897. Virginia asked the editor if there really was a Santa Claus, to which he famously replied, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, as certainly as love, generosity and devotion exist…”The Pasadena Community Foundation was established in 1953 by Pasadena philanthropists Mr. & Mrs. Louis Webb who pledged their estate to the Foundation. PCF provides funding to six areas each representing important resources that merit support in the Pasadena community. These include: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Health, Human Services, and Youth. Grants are distributed across these broad areas to ensure that the diversity of riches in the community are preserved for the next generation.For more information on the Pasadena Community Foundation, please visit Community News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Pulse PollVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Police arrest teen mom after her 11-month-old is found dead in a plastic bag

first_imgWSOC-TV(CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, S.C.) — A 19-year-old mother was arrested in South Carolina after claiming her 11-month-old had been ripped from her arms by a kidnapper and police later found the child dead in a plastic bag.Breanna Lewis is the primary suspect in the infant’s death, authorities told WSOC-TV. She has been charged with filing a false report, and additional charges are pending.Harlee Lane Lewis, the infant, had been the subject of an Amber Alert in Chesterfield County after her mother said the child was taken from her as they walked outside to get the mail. A man roughed her up, Lewis claimed, and sped off with Harlee in an SUV.When Chesterfield County Sheriffs deputies searched the area on Tuesday, they discovered Harlee’s body inside a plastic bag, inside a diaper box, about 1,000 yards away from her home.The apparent injuries sustained by Lewis are believed to be from a recent car accident, not an assailant, County Sheriff Jay Brooks told WSOC-TV.As for Lewis’ pending charges, Brooks said: “It may be wrongful disposal of body, maybe not reporting child death, maybe murder, not sure.”An autopsy of the 11-month-old is planned.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Guardian charged with abuse and neglect after 1-year-old girl dies in hot car

first_imgaijohn784/iStock(LINDENWOLD, N.J.) — A 60-year-old man has been charged after a 1-year-old girl, of whom he was the legal guardian, died in a hot car in New Jersey, prosecutors said.Shelton Shambry was charged Monday with fourth-degree abuse and neglect for allegedly leaving the 22-month-old girl in a van at a train station in Lindenwold last month, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.After a call to 911 on Aug. 16, responders found the little girl unresponsive in her car seat, prosecutors said.She was pronounced dead at 3:54 p.m. — less than 20 minutes after the call to 911, prosecutors said, and her manner of death was ruled accidental.The temperature in Lindenwold reached 87 degrees that day with a heat index — or what it feels like — of 92.Shambry had allegedly put the 1-year-old in the car shortly before 6:30 a.m. that day and forgot she was in there, prosecutors said.Shambry told police the usual routine was for him to drop the little girl off at day care before bringing a family member to work, but on that morning, the family member asked to be dropped off before heading to the day care, according to court documents.After bringing the family member to work, Shambry told police he drove home, unintentionally leaving the girl in the car, court documents said.At about 11:30 a.m., Shambry told police, he left the house for his work shift and drove to the train station — all while he was unaware the 1-year-old was in the back of the van, court documents said. He told police he parked, locked the van and went to the train, court documents said.Shambry was charged on a summons and released; he’s set to make his first appearance in court on Sept. 26, prosecutors said. He does not yet have an attorney.At least 41 children have died in hot cars so far this year in the U.S., according to national nonprofit group is advocating for Congress to pass the Hot Cars Act to require rear occupant alarm technology in cars.“Without technology to detect the presence of a child inside a vehicle, hot car tragedies will continue to happen week after week because nobody believes this could happen to them,” Amber Rollins, director of, told ABC News last month.Click here for a list of hot car safety tips.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
