Matthew Morgan salvages a draw for Ospreys against Treviso

first_imgFriday Nov 25, 2011 Matthew Morgan salvages a draw for Ospreys against Treviso Here is a quick look at the Heineken Cup game between Treviso and Ospreys that ended in a 26-26 draw thanks to a late penalty from young Matthew Morgan. The game also included a few great tries, and a very soft looking yellow card decision. The home side looked as though they were on course for a famous upset but were undone by the long range penalty from 19 year old Morgan, who is already showing signs of being a future Welsh rugby great.Tommaso Benvenuti was yellow carded after he picked up and dumped Shane Williams in yet another example of a controversial tip tackle decision. On first look it was dangerous as Williams’ legs faced skyward, but Benvenut then looked to control it, bringing him to ground safely.Williams himself said that the result was disappointing for the Ospreys in a ‘strange’ game of rugby.“Discipline in the first-half was quite poor – little, silly penalties that kind of takes the wind out of your sails at times. It was very frustrating and, of course, the tries that we conceded were all from our mistakes.“We got out of jail in the end, but we’re disappointed we didn’t put that game to bed. But it’s never easy to come to Treviso. They are a side that’s progressing each year,” he added.Feel free to share your thoughts on the Morgan kick, some great tries, and that yellow card.ADVERTISEMENT 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 volunteer fair is held every fall for students and faculty to meet with representatives from various community agencies to learn about the service opportunities in Fort Worth, according to director of community engagement Rosangela BoydStudents visit the Volunteer Fair to learn about service opportunities (Nicole Strong/TCU360).“It is our hope that our students will find ways of participating and be engaged in service throughout Fort Worth and show that we are living up to our mission,” Boyd said.  Lillie Dewar, a first-year mechanical engineering major, said having the event on campus was convenient for students. “It’s nice to have them come out and help us find those areas rather than having to go out ourselves and find those outlets,” Dewar said. Opportunities at the event included joining an American Heart Association advocacy team, preserving Texas State Parks and caring for animals at the Humane Society of North Texas.American Heart Association spokesperson Victoria Nelson said students should be active and donate as much time as possible. Each agency set up tables with pamphlets, brochures and free merchandise for students and faculty to learn more about their respective organizations. Clare McGrady, a first-year mathematics major, said the event was helpful for students that are from out-of-state. “I’m really looking for something specific to Texas so that I can get to know the area better,” McGrady said. “I really want to get connected in the Texas community and Fort Worth.” For more information about service opportunities, visit http://involved.tcu.edu or stop by the office for community engagement in Jarvis Hall.   Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Roach Honors College is hosting Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder at this year’s Fogelson Forum.Koenig and Snyder created “Serial” in 2014.  The first season, featuring 12 parts, has been downloaded more than 100 million times.“Serial” has won many awards including the Peabody and Edward R. Murrow awards. “There’s always a balance between bringing someone with name-recognition and someone who is an academic expert in their field,” said Lauren Nixon, an organizer of the Fogelson Forum.  “It’s nice when you can do both.”Koenig, host and executive producer of the podcast, is a journalist, public radio personality and one of TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” of 2015.  Snyder, the executive producer, has won four Peabody Awards for her work in broadcast.Season one tells the story of a 1999 murder case and its complicated trial in Baltimore County, Maryland.  Season two explores the return of U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl after being a prisoner of the Taliban. Nixon said with the rebirth of podcasts, the way information is shared is changing.“I want people to be aware of this new and evolving form of storytelling,” said Nixon. When faculty and staff met to discuss speaker ideas, names of many journalists came up.  “I haven’t gotten to see Sarah and Julie’s presentation yet, but I’ve been told it’s amazing,” said Nixon.One goal of the Fogelson Forum is to engender open dialogue and conversation.“It’s a great opportunity to bring somebody thought-provoking and interesting to campus,” said Nixon.A few of the past speakers include: Ben Stein, Sanjay Gupta, Jeb Bush and Bill Bradley, Amy Tan, Paul Begala and Art Fleischer, Mary Matalin and James Carville.The Honors College is capable of hosting the Fogelson Forum thanks to an endowment from E.E.

Breaking: Journalist Tarun Tejpal Acquitted In 2013 Rape Case

first_imgTop StoriesBreaking: Journalist Tarun Tejpal Acquitted In 2013 Rape Case Sharmeen Hakim20 May 2021 10:25 PMShare This – xTarun Tejpal, the founder and former editor-in-chief of ‘Tehelka has been acquitted of all charges in in the sexual assault and rape case of a junior colleague by the District and Sessions Court at Mapusa, Goa. He was accused of forcing himself on the woman, against her wishes, inside an elevator of the Grand Hyatt, Bambolim, Goa on November 7 and 8, 2013, during the newsmagazine’s official event – the THiNK 13 festival. Advertisement Additional Sessions Judge Kshama Joshi reserved her verdict in the seven-year-old case, last month. The trial was held in-camera at Tejpal’s instance. He was tried for committing offences punishable under IPC Sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 342 (wrongful confinement), 354 (sexual harassment), 354A(1)(I)(II)(demand for sexual favours), 354B (assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe), 376 (2)(f) (person in a position of authority over women, committing rape) and 376(2)(k) (rape by a person in a position of control).Advertisement Special Public Prosecutor Francisco Tavora assisted by advocate Cyndiana D’Silva represented the Goa Police while Advocates Rajeev Gomes and Amir Khan represented Tejpal. The Arrest On November 18, 2013, a few days after the incident, the victim complained to Tehelka’s then managing editor, another acclaimed journalist – Shoma Chaudhry. The next day, in a long email, Tejpal sent a formal apology to the victim in which he said,Advertisement Advertisement “I apologise unconditionally for the shameful lapse of judgement that led me to attempt a sexual liaison with you on two occasions on November 7 and November 8 2013, despite your clear reluctance that you did not want such attention from me.” He further wrote to Chaudhry, in which he called the incident a bad lapse of judgement, an awful misreading of the situation, have led to an unfortunate incident that rails against all we believe in and fight for.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The victim, however, insisted that an anti-sexual harassment cell be set up under the Vishakha guidelines to investigate the matter. Given that his apology presents an entirely different version from my testimony, ie. attempts to establish that a “sexual liaison” took place as opposed to him sexually molesting me, I insist once again in the spirit of justice, to constitute an anti-sexual harassment cell in accordance with Vishakha Guidelines. Tejpal eventually stepped down as editor for six-months to allow a fair internal inquiry. In the meantime, on November 22, 2013, the Goa Police took suo motu cognisance of the allegations that had become front-page news and registered a complaint. Tejpal alleged he was being framed, and the case was a political conspiracy against him, especially since BJP was the ruling party in Goa. It may be noted that Tehelka, and with it Tejpal, shot to fame in 2001 with Operation West End, a sting that exposed the then ruling party – NDA led by BJP’s – corrupt defence deals, forcing the exit of BJP president, late Bengaru Laxman and defence minister George Fernandes. Tejpal had started the news website along with journalist Anirudhha Bahal. As for the sexual harassment case, Tejpal was arrested on November 30, 2013, after a local court in Goa rejected his anticipatory bail application. He was granted regular bail by the Supreme Court less than a year later, in July 2014. In February 2014, the Goa Police Crime Branch filed a 2,846-page charge sheet against him. Three years later, in June 2017, the Sessions Court allowed Tejpal’s application to conduct the trial in-camera to protect both the parties’ dignity, respect, and privacy. On September 28, 2017 the Sessions Court framed charges against him, and the victim testified in March 2018. The prosecution has examined 71 witnesses and cross-examined five defence witnesses in the case. The prosecution’s case mainly rests on the victim’s statement, statements of her colleagues, and electronic evidence in the form of CCTV footage, e-mails and WhatsApp messages. In August 2019, a Supreme Court bench of Justices Arun Mishra, M R Shah and B R Gavai SC rejected Tejpal’s plea to quash the charges against him. Terming the offence “morally abhorrent” and an “assault on the privacy of the victim”, the bench directed the Sessions Court to complete the trial within six months. The prosecution then filed a supplementary charge sheet in January this year, citing ten more witnesses. In March, the prosecution and defence arguments concluded arguments and the case was reserved for orders.
