From unwanted records to the great players who could have played for Namibia – find out some trivia about the World Cup’s lowest ranked nation Jacks (and Jacques) of all tradesJacques Burger before the 2015 World CupThe team for the 2015 World Cup is made up of professionals and amateurs, with dentists, engineers, farmers and diamond traders.Saracens back-row Jacques Burger is by far the most well-known player in the squad, but when training together everyone has to wait for the amateurs to finish work until they can hit the field.Another unwanted recordGeorge North scores against Namibia in 2011When George North scored two tries against Namibia in the 2011 he became the youngest try scorer in World Cup history.Wales put 81 points on the African team, who replied with a try from Heinz Koll. North was one of nine Wales players who crossed the whitewash, with Shane Williams touching down three times.The ones that got awayPercy Montgomery plays against Namibia in 2007Before Namibia gained independence, players born in the then named South West Africa were eligible to play for South Africa. Two notable players who plied their trade for the Springboks are full-back Percy Montgomery and flanker Jan Ellis. TAGS: Namibia There’s no such thing as an easy game when you’re a Namibian international, but opening your Rugby World Cup campaign against reigning champions New Zealand is particularly tough.As the tournament’s lowest ranked team, Namibia are not expecting to spring an upset, but hope to put in a good show against the side at the top of the World Rugby rankings table.But as the mix of professionals and amateurs prepare for their moment in the spotlight on Thursday night, take a look at some facts you may not have known about the African nation’s rugby history.142-0Australian captain Chris Whitaker is tackled in the 2003 World CupNamibia made Rugby World Cup history when they conceded 142 points against Australia in 2003, and with the African side failing to get on the scoresheet the result is the biggest losing margin ever in the tournament.They conceded 22 tries in that defeat, which is also still a World Cup record. Australia were only three points shy of matching New Zealand’s all-time scoring record in the finals, which they set in 1995 by beating Japan 145-17.BlankedJaque Fourie against Namibia in a 2007 gameNamibia’s record loss to Australia was the first of three occasions in which they’ve been held scoreless at a World Cup. In 2007 they lost 30-0 to Georgia, while four years later they conceded 87 points without reply against South Africa.In total, teams have been failed to record a single point ten times in finals history, with Namibia making up 30% of these.

The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP, the new Secretary of State for International Development, has written to civil society organisations about the government’s planning for Brexit, with a reminder for those that deliver services throughout the EU and risk having funding cut to respond to its offer of financial assurance.In a letter published on Friday 16 August, Sharma said that the Government was gearing up to leave on 31 October, deal or no deal.DFID’s priority, he said, was ensuring that the country’s civil society organisations remain able to continue their if there is a no deal exit following the EU’s statement that it intends to terminate funding to some on-going programmes delivered by UK civil society organisations in this event.He stated: “As you will be aware, the Government has offered to provide financial assurance to UK civil society organisations that lead and deliver development, external action and humanitarian programmes through the European Commission that are at risk of having their funding terminated in a no deal scenario.“I continue to encourage organisations to apply for our financial assurance for any new programme that is agreed.”The deadline for applying for this to prevent any loss of funding is 31 October. More information is available on the .gov site.Sharma also addressed reports of EU discrimination against British civil society organisations. He stated that while DFID had received assurances from the EU Commission that no discrimination was taking place, with reports to contrary, he will continue to raise further reported cases with them and to monitor the situation closely.

Women prisoners in the Yuba County Jail in Marysville, Calif., are on hunger strike in solidarity with detained immigrants. In the first such unified prisoner action in the U.S., women in criminal custody are fasting in solidarity with women in immigration custody. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) rents space in the Yuba County Jail to incarcerate undocumented immigrants. (San Francisco Bay View, Dec. 16)A Dec. 10 solidarity protest in front of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters inWashington, DC, demands the release of all hungerstriking detained immigrants.Photo: Yashi MoriThe Yuba County Jail strike is in support of Rajashree Roy, an immigrant detainee facing deportation to Fiji, where she has not lived since she was eight. Roy has been detained for over a year. She is allowed to see her children only through plexiglass walls.The women in criminal custody who are hunger striking in solidarity with Roy are Jessica Bullock, Tisha Sartor, Kyra Beckles, Juanita Thomas and Ana Marquez.Anoop Prasad, a lawyer with Asian Americans Advancing Justice who is representing Roy, said, “What’s happening in Yuba County is historic and unprecedented. … In terms of people physically putting their bodies on the line [together], this is the first time.” (tinyurl.com/q7c9w96)Protesters rally in solidarity with hungerstrikers on Nov. 30 at Alabama’s Etowah County Detention Center, where immigrants are imprisoned.Photo: William ThorntonThe Yuba County women released this statement: “We are locked up together and refuse to be divided into immigrants and citizens. None of us belong in this cage separated from our families. We join the brave immigrant hunger strikers across the country in fasting to force recognition of our humanity.” (San Francisco Bay View, Dec. 16)Their strike began Dec. 14 before dawn as an extension of the #FreedomGiving hunger strikes launched during the U.S. “Thanksgiving” holiday. Hundreds of South Asian, African and Latino/a detainees participated in hunger strikes in seven ICE detainee centers from California to Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia and Alabama.ASPIRE, a pan-Asian, undocumented youth-led group, announced its members would gather outside the Yuba County Jail to fast in solidarity with the women. ASPIRE is calling for an end to violence faced by Asian and Pacific Island communities, as well as “an end to the unjust policing and the criminalization of all communities of color.” (tinyurl.com/hx3qjdn)A solidarity demonstration with immigrant hunger strikers was held Nov. 30 outside Alabama’s Etowah County Detention Center. The rally supported those refusing food “to denounce the inhumane treatment they endure in these facilities where their human dignity is ignored by the ICE agenda and immigration detention system.” The Etowah facility leases prison space to ICE. (facebook.com/shutdownetowah)The #FreedomGiving strikers have released this list of demands: “End to all detentions and deportations. End to the ICE detention bed quotas. End to indefinite detention: Release on parole or supervision for all asylum seekers held for more than 6 months. Improved conditions in detention (discipline, food, clothing, access to phones, medical access).” (notonemoredeportation.com)“Bed quotas” refers to an obscure Homeland Security policy requiring ICE to keep an average of 34,000 detainees per day in custody. The quota guarantees a constant stream of money to counties that rent public jail space to ICE. (Washington Post, Oct. 13, 2013)Throughout the U.S., detainees report ICE is attempting to end their hunger strike through torture tactics ranging from sleep deprivation and solitary confinement to forced catheterization. Some hunger strikers in the Etowah jail were coerced to eat after a federal judge ordered them force-fed. (Al.com)One Etowah striker, Mahbubar Rahman, said: “When we started this hunger strike, we thought this was only our problem. But when we heard so many other centers also joined the hunger strike, we realized that detention is a national problem. We started to shake the walls of these prisons.” (tinyurl.com/gnjw59t/)For information on sending support messages to the Yuba County Jail striking women, go to tinyurl.com/gtnbg5y.You can support the #FreedomGiving strikers by signing their petition: tinyurl.com/qdhre4wFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Walnut Street in Pasadena.Kaiser Permanente, considered the largest managed healthcare organization in the U.S., is set to play an increasingly important role in Pasadena as the result of its decision to build a major medical training facility here in 2017. The facility will be called Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine (KPSOM) and is scheduled to start accepting students by 2019.The striking RNs, members of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United, say that Kaiser Permanente is ignoring their demands to increase the number of nurses and improve the facilities at LAMC, and to improve their economic conditions by increasing wages.In a statement, Kaiser called the strike “a disappointing tactic to try to influence the bargaining of a first-time contract.”The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United (CAN/NNU) said the walkout involves some 1,200 registered nurses, many of whom are seeking their first collective bargaining contract.“Kaiser has not given these nurses their wage increase for six years, no wage increase,” Roselle Gatdula, a seven-year nurse at LAMC’s neuro-surgical unit, adds. “And then, when they did finally present us what they call a 15 percent wage increase proposal, we take a look at it and it’s not enough if we calculate all the loses, all the wage we’ve lost over the six years. It’s still not enough.”Kaiser said the strike was unjustified, saying it has laid out an “excellent offer” for the nurses in bargaining last month. The company said the proposed wages would keep them among “the best paid nurses in Southern California.”The nurses also took issue with Kaiser Permanente’s announcement to start building a medical school in Pasadena so long as LAMC, according the nurses, continues to deal with a lack of resources.Karen Chan, CAN/NNU’s Kaiser Division Director, says Kaiser should first take a look at what she says are Styrikdeficiencies in their staffing and equipment at LAMC before even thinking of opening a medical school.“A lot of us have trouble looking for thermometers for their patients, and due to the light of the fact that now Kaiser’s trying to open a medical school, they really try and call attention to that fact,” Chan says. “They should fix a lot of issues, their issues, before they open a medical school.”Kaiser Permanente responded by saying setting up the medical school will not impact on the operations and quality of service at LAMC.“Funding for the future School of Medicine is from our nonprofit charitable dollars, separate from our medical center operations funds,” Kaiser said in its press statement. “KPSOM, which is scheduled to open in three years, will educate future physicians who will enter the field providing excellent care in multidisciplinary teams to patients both inside and outside of Kaiser Permanente.”After the Pasadena rally Thursday, the nurses plan to continue their picket outside LAMC premises, with a concluding rally set for Monday, March 21.

TAGS WhatsApp Revelation Biosciences Inc. Completes Dosing of Five Single Dose Cohorts and Receives Approval to Initiate a Multiple Dose Cohort to Phase 1 Clinical Study of REVTx-99, an Experimental Treatment for Respiratory Viral Infection, Including COVID-19 Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp MENLO PARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Revelation Biosciences Inc. (Revelation), a clinical stage life sciences company focused on the development of immunologic-based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease, announced today that it has been granted approval by the Bellberry Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) in Australia to add a multiple dose cohort to its Phase 1 clinical study of REVTx-99 in healthy volunteers (RVL-NHV01 study). REVTx-99 is in development for the treatment and prevention of respiratory viral infection, including SARS-CoV-2 Infection (COVID-19). RVL-NHV01 is a single site, placebo-controlled, single dose, escalating dose, followed by multiple dose arm to determine the safety and tolerability of intranasal REVTx-99 in healthy adult volunteers. The Phase 1 study single dose escalation portion of the study was completed in January 2021, in which 40 study participants were dosed with REVTx-99 (n=6) or placebo (n=2). The primary endpoints were to determine the safety and tolerability of escalating intranasal doses of REVTx-99 in healthy adult volunteers, and to determine the pharmacodynamic effect of REVTx-99 in healthy adult volunteers as measured by nasal and systemic cytokine levels throughout the course of treatment. “We are pleased to have completed enrollment of all single dose cohorts with only mild local side effects and look forward to conducting the multiple dose cohort to further enable our planned COVID-19 studies,” said James Rolke, Chief Executive Officer of Revelation. “With new SARS-CoV-2 variants emerging, and the continued impact of COVID-19 on the daily lives of people around the world, we remain focused on rapidly advancing an urgently needed therapy for patients in need.” Revelation expects the multiple dose cohort enrollment of RVL-NHV01 to be completed in February 2021, followed by the announcement of topline data by the end of the first quarter of 2021. Revelation plans to initiate a Phase 1/2 study during the first half of 2021 in early stage COVID-19 patients at risk for hospitalization. For more information on Revelation, please visit www.RevBiosciences.com. About REVTx-99 REVTx-99 is a proprietary intranasal drop formulation in development for the treatment of respiratory viral infection and is broadly applicable to most infectious viruses including SARS-CoV-2 and its variants. SARS-CoV-2 viral proteins have been shown to block the production of interferons, a key part of the innate immune response to viral infection, resulting in worsened clinical outcomes. REVTx-99 acts by stimulating the innate immune system at the site of infection via an alternative pathway (TLR4) to produce protective cytokines including Type I and Type II interferons. The innate immune system is the first line of defense against invading pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are associated with sentinel cells (e.g. macrophages, dendritic cells) and serve a vital role in the innate immune system response. TLRs recognize repeated molecular patterns associated with pathogens (PAMPS). When a pathogen invades a subject, TLRs recognize PAMPS as foreign and activate the innate immune response, inducing the production of numerous cytokines to combat the invading pathogen and stimulate the adaptive immune response. About REVDx-501 REVDx-501, a rapid point of care diagnostic product that can be used to detect any respiratory viral infection including SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, Influenza B, parainfluenza, respiratory syncytial virus, etc. The diagnostic is based on a lateral flow assay format, similar to a home pregnancy test with a simple to read visual readout that provides a result in less than 10 minutes without the need for specialized instrumentation or complicated sample collection. The commercial version of the kit is self-contained, portable, and able to be shipped anywhere. The instructions will direct users with a positive result to seek confirmatory testing and/or medical treatment. About Revelation Biosciences Inc. Revelation Biosciences, Inc. is a clinical stage life sciences company focused on the development of immunologic-based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease. The Company has several product candidates in development. REVTx-99, the lead therapeutic candidate, is an intranasal immunomodulator for the early treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection. An expansion of REVTx-99 therapeutic indications is planned, targeting early treatment and prevention of respiratory viral infection such as influenza A or B, parainfluenza, and respiratory syncytial virus. REVTx-200 is an intranasal immunomodulator adjunct to be used in combination with an intramuscular vaccination for more complete immunity. REVTx-200 is based on the same technology used in REVTx-99. In addition to the Company’s therapeutic pipeline, Revelation is also developing REVDx-501, a rapid point of care diagnostic that can be used to detect any respiratory viral infection, regardless of virus type or strain, without the need for specialized instrumentation.

The party had sought the time to substitute its candidate who has defected to BJP. A three-judge Bench of CJI Bobde, Justice Bopanna and Justice Ramasubramanian has allowed petitioner to withdraw the plea and approach the Gauhati High Court.The petitioner was represented by Senior Advocates AM Singhvi and Devdatt Kamat before the Court today. The petition was filed by Advocates Varun Chopra, Javedur Rahman, Rajesh Inamdar, Aditya Bhat, Gurtejpal Singh and Aman Pawar.The President of the Bodoland Peoples Front Hangrama Mohilary filed the present plea seeking urgent directions to the Election Commission to decide their representations dated 1st April and 2nd April 2021 and pass appropriate orders to enable the Petitioner’s political party to substitute its candidate Rangja Khungur Basuatary, who has defected to the BJP after filing the nomination on behalf of BPF.The plea sought directions to the Election Commission to amend the election schedule prescribed in the gazette notification dated12th March 2021 for the 3rd phase of the Assam Assembly Elections, in terms of Section 153 and Section 30 of the Representation of People Act, 1951, so as to enable Petitioner’s party i.e. the Bodoland Peoples Front, to substitute its candidate to contest the election. According to Mohilary, he along with BPF have been denied the right of nomination to contest the elections to Tamulpur assembly constituency by a complete and wanton act of subterfuge and fraud committed by the said Rangja Khungur Basuatary who has defected to BJP.The petitioner contended that it is apparent that the present case is not one of voluntarily joining another political party, and is result of BJP’s decision to adopt an ingenious method to sabotage election prospects of other political parties, after realizing its poor performance in the first and second phase and its imminent defeat in the Assam Elections.According to the petitioner, it is incontrovertible that BJP leaders have used illicit and illegal influence and even bribery to pressurize Basumatary to join the BJP and their actions have caused grave prejudice to the Petitioner’s party since no replacement candidate can be fielded by them and election to the 58- Tamulpur Assembly Constituency has effectively become a sham.The petitioner also contended that the bar contained under Article 329(b) of the Constitution is not at all attracted in the present case since, as held by the Constitution Bench in Mohinder Singh Gill v. Chief Election Commr, and reiterated by a bench of three Judges in Election Commission of India v. Ashok Kumar, the Petitioner herein is not “calling in question an election” but is only seeking directions for the furtherance and completion of the election proceedings in a free and fair manner.According to the petitioner, the presentation plea seeks necessary directions to the Election Commission to not rescind the election, but merely to extend the completion of the same by deferring the poll to the constituency in question so as to allow the Petitioner’s political party to field a genuine candidate who would substitute its erstwhile candidate who has so flagrantly defected to the BJP.The petitioner has stated that they had approached the Election Commission with this request after the candidate set up by it to contest the polls, Rangja Khungur Basumatary, defected to BJP on the eve of the polls and much later than the last date of filing nominations” Such ingenious method of sabotaging a political party from participating in elections is not only an affront to the democratic and constitutional spirit of free and fair elections but the inaction of the Election Commission in exercising its powers under Section 153 to ensure the furtherance of election in a free and fair manner is completely antithetical to the concept of equality before law enshrined in Article 14 of the Constitution and a deprivation of the fundamental right of free speech and expression of the political party under Article 19 to express itself and seek votes through a candidate of its choice.” The plea has stated.Next Story
