LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sergio Parisse closing in on 100 Test lossesIf Italy captain Sergio Parisse loses his next Test, against Scotland on Saturday, he will have lost 100 international matches.The 34-year-old No 8 already holds the record for Test match losses. He has lost three times as many matches as he has played for the Azzurri, with 33 wins to his name, alongside the 99 losses (and a draw against Wales). No matter the result this weekend, Italy will take the Wooden Spoon for this year’s Six Nations. However a win would not only freeze Parisse on 99 losses, but also avoid a tournament whitewash.Related: What is the Wooden Spoon?Although Parisse is already considered one of the all-time great No 8, the Stade Francais back-rower has always been up against it. His record may also suffer due to the sheer volume of international matches he has played in, with 133 games to his name. He is now fifth on the list of most-capped players ever.Happy memory: Parisse after defeating Scotland in Edinburgh in 2015His first ever Tests outing was against the All Blacks – a team he has faced seven times, losing every time. He has never overcome England in his 14 attempts, or Australia in any of the ten times he has met them. No stranger to kicking: Parisse can put boot to ballCuriously, Parisse has never scored a try against Scotland. He has scored 15 Test tries in his career and he has scored against all of the other Six Nations sides. We cannot forget that scored a drop-goal against them, knocking the kick over in the 21st minute of the 26-6 loss in Edinburgh, in 2009. Perhaps he is overdue a try against them…Italy’s final outing of the 2018 Six Nations takes place against Scotland at the Stadio Olimpico, with kick-off at 12:30pm on Saturday 17 March. Holding nothing back: Proud Parisse talks to his defence against France He has defeated South Africa, leading his team to that stunning 20-18 victory in Florence, in 2016. And who can forget the 22-15 win over Ireland, in Rome, back in 2013 (even if Parisse was yellow carded in that encounter)? He has also famously defeated France twice, and Wales once.Related: The Six Nations tableFiji, Samoa, Tonga, USA, Russia, Japan, Argentina, Portugal, Romania, Georgia, Canada and Spain have all fallen to him.So what about Scotland? Well the good news is that Parisse has faced the Scots 17 times and won five times – and only three of those were at home, showing that fear factor is not an issue.
LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The trophy: This year’s Heineken Champions Cup final will be played at St James’ Park (Inpho) European Champions Cup Quarter-finals PreviewIt’s quarter-finals weekend in European rugby and we asked Ed Jackson, the former Bath, Wasps and Dragons back-row, to make his predictions as to who will reach the semi-finals of the Heineken Champions Cup. Will you agree with his choices?EDINBURGH v MUNSTERSaturday 30 March, 12.45pm, Live on BT Sport, Channel 4 & Virgin MediaThe pick of the bunch for me. The Irish national side might be operating slightly off the pace at the moment but it would be naïve to expect the same from Munster.They made a slow start to the group stages but since round two they have looked imperious. They’re the only group winners to find themselves away from home, but there’s no doubt the passionate Munster faithful will be doing their best to make BT Murrayfield feel like Thomond Park.Wrapped up: Munster’s Niall Scannell is caught by the Edinburgh defence (Getty Images)By this stage of the competition, when European giants Munster head across the Irish Sea in search of their next victim, it is usually to England or France. Rarely do they venture to their Celtic brothers in the North but there’s something happening in the Scottish capital that’s making everyone sit up and take notice.The appointment of Richard Cockerill as DoR is proving to be an inspired one. The former Leicester Tiger is renowned for his uncompromising approach, both as a player and coach, but his tactical astuteness is often overlooked. Both of these facets have undoubtedly rubbed off on his Edinburgh side, who are now not only scoring some scintillating tries but have the ability to strangle teams into submission.Sprinkle that with some stardust like Viliame Mata, Duhan van der Merwe, Darcy Graham and the returning John Barclay, and all of a sudden the men from Auld Reekie are a formidable opponent for any invading army.It’s going to be a close one but, hold on to your kilts, I think Edinburgh are the real deal this year.Prediction: Edinburgh by four.SARACENS v GLASGOWSaturday 30 March, 3.15pm, Live on BT SportThis will be the third time these two meet this season and there are a raft of players getting very familiar with each other for both club and country. There’s certainly no love lost between them and if previous fixtures are anything to go by you can expect plenty of niggle.Soft hands: Billy Vunipola passes the ball as Saracens take on Glasgow (Getty Images)Saracens took the bragging rights in the previous two pool encounters but it was by no means straightforward. Glasgow pose a potent attacking threat and their loose and unconventional style has the ability to make a mockery of most.However, that same style can cause them issues in defence, Saracens crossing the whitewash five times last time they met. Still, the 38-19 scoreline flattered Saracens in what was largely a very competitive game.You can expect a much closer affair this time out, but the two-times European champions want their title back and it’s difficult to see the Scots being the ones to deny them that.Expect tempers to be tested and plenty of points on the board. The May 2019 issue of Rugby World – out now – features an exclusive interview with Edinburgh’s Viliame Mata.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Prediction: Saracens by 15.Defending champs: Leinster celebrate their European victory last year (Getty Images)LEINSTER v ULSTERSaturday 30 March, 5.45pm, Live on BT SportAn all-Irish affair will see the Ulstermen travel down the M1 to confront European giants Leinster. Ulster have looked inspired in periods this year but, as head coach Dan McFarland pointed out this week, it’s going to take more than just periods of inspiration to topple the defending champions.Injuries aren’t helping Ulster either with Louis Ludik, Iain Henderson, Darren Cave and Will Addison all doubts and Luke Marshall still sidelined – but they might have a trick up their sleeve. Back-row Jordi Murphy moved to Belfast from Dublin last summer having been an integral part of Leinster’s double success in 2018 and is bound to be able to offer his new team an insight into the inner workings of the big blue beast.Insider knowledge: Jordi Murphy wins a lineout for Ulster (Getty Images)How much difference that will make remains to be seen but it’s certainly on the radar of Leinster coach Leo Cullen, who said recently that he is trying to remember what Murphy will know and adjust accordingly.It’s not a done deal as Ulster are yet to put in a full 80-minute performance this year and still find themselves in a European quarter-final. The question is: if they can finally produce a complete display, will it be enough? I suspect not.Prediction: Leinster by 12.RACING 92 v TOULOUSESunday 31 March, 3.15pm, Live on BT SportFrench giants collide in Paris and I imagine we’re going to see fireworks. The resurgence of Toulouse has warmed the cockles of any red-blooded rugby fan, as has the manor in which they have been playing.Foot race: Juan Imhoff makes a break for Racing against Toulouse (Getty Images)Toulouse top the French domestic competition and with the likes of Maxime Medard, Thomas Ramos, Jerome Kaino and Antoine Dupont in fine form, you wouldn’t right them off from coming out on top in Europe as well.However, last year’s finalists might have something to say about that. In Scotland fly-half Finn Russell, Racing have one of the most talented operators on the planet and if he shows anywhere near the form that he did in the second half against England a couple of weeks ago then they should be in business.Two teams with a passion for attacking rugby and the players to produce it, this should be a cracker but my heart says that the team from La Ville Rose will march on.Prediction: Toulouse by two. Former Bath, Wasps and Dragons back-row Ed Jackson runs the rule over this weekend’s four European Cup ties

Italian oil group Eni has said the next spike could be around $200 a barrel. Eni’s chief executive, Claudio Descalzi, said the oil industry would cut capital spending by 10-13% this year because of slumping prices. He said that would create longer-term shortages and sharp price rises in four to five years’ time, if the Opec cartel fails to cut supplies. Mr Descalzi was speaking at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort of Davos. SHARE SHARE Home Energy Oil prices ‘low for up to 3 years’ Oil prices ‘low for up to 3 years’ The boss of oil giant BP Bob Dudley has said that oil prices could remain low for up to three years. He added that could send UK petrol prices below £1 per litre. He told BBC Business editor Kamal Ahmed in Davos BP was planning for low oil prices for years to come. That is expected to lead to job losses and falling investment in the North Sea oil industry and elsewhere, curbing supply and eventually forcing the price back up.

News Follow the news on Vietnam RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison News Read in Chinese / 看中文Reporters Without Borders condemns a new crackdown on Vietnam’s bloggers and human rights activists.“The authorities are stopping at nothing to silence dissidents, following them, assaulting them, subjecting them to heavy-handed interrogation and holding them illegally,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They are acting like thugs with peaceful bloggers because they fear that a wave of anti-Chinese demonstrations could pose a threat to internal stability.“Activists whose only crime is having tried to satisfy their fellow citizens’ right to news and information must be released without delay. We also call for the immediate release of Nguyen Van Hai, a blogger better known by the pen-name of Dieu Cay, who continues to be harassed while detained.”Followed, assaulted and interrogatedThe blogger Vi Hoang Nguyen was injured in Ho Chi Minh City on 13 July by plainclothes security agents, who had been following her all day as she visited her mother in hospital and then went to celebrate the birthday of three other bloggers – Tien Kim Trinh, Trang Dem and Hang Minh Bui. As the bloggers were used to this kind of surveillance, they paid little attention to the government agents.After the party, Nguyen and Bui left in the same car with three other people (Lee Nguyen, Quyet Le and Tan Thi Duong, the wife of the well-known detained blogger Dieu Cay). Eight government agents followed them in their own vehicle and, at one point, drove close to the bloggers’ car and smashed its rear window. The shattered glass cut Nguyen’s face, arms and legs. Bui and Lee Nguyen also sustained cuts.Nguyen has been constantly followed by individuals, who photograph her during all of her movements, ever since she was interrogated and arrested by National Security officers on 1 July after participating in demonstration against China.The blogger Huynh Thuc Vy was arrested by police and National Security officers on 4 July and was held overnight. While held, she was subjected to mistreatment which she described in an interview for Radio Free Asia. A local sources speaking on condition of anonymity told Reporters Without Borders that her computers and phones were confiscated.Vy and her husband, Le Khanh Duy, were interrogated for more than 12 hours on 1 July after attending a demonstration against China. They have been followed everywhere since then by agents who have harassed them and, on several occasions, invited them to accompany them to a police station for an aggressive interrogation. The authorities used heady-handed intimidation in an attempt to dissuade activists from attending another demonstration during the weekend of 14 July.Blogger Dieu Cay still heldNguyen Van Hai, the blogger better known as Dieu Cay, should have been released on 19 October 2010 on completing a 30-month jail sentence on a trumped-up charge of tax fraud, but new charges were brought against him. He is now accused of anti-government propaganda under article 88 of the criminal code.He has been held since April 2008, when he was arrested on the tax fraud charge seven months after he and two other bloggers – Phan Thanh Hai (who uses the pen-name of Anhbasg) and Ta Phong Tan – founded the Free Journalists Club.Dieu Cay’s continuing detention is illegal because the case has not been brought to trial. This violates article 176 (2) of the 2003 criminal code, which stipulates that a case must be brought before a judge within three months at the most – a deadline that a judge can extend by another 15 to 30 days, depending in the gravity of the charges.Dieu Cay told his family on 3 July, during one of the rare visits he is permitted, that his detention had now been extended until 18 July. He has refused to plead guilty to the charge and continues to defend the right to free speech. His family is worried about his declining health, especially as he is reportedly been subjected to worse conditions for refusing to sign a confession.Jailed for speaking to foreign mediaThree activists who defend peasant rights were given sentences of up to five and a half years in prison on 16 July on charges of anti-government propaganda. They were arrested in June 2011 after giving interviews to foreign media in which they accused the Communist Party and government officials of human rights violations. The activists were also accused of inciting peasants to take part in demonstrations against China’s territorial policies in the South China Sea.Aware of the unrest in the Arab world and the recent pro-democracy reforms in Burma, Vietnam’s paranoid authorities have been reinforcing control and repressive measures in a bid to head off any destabilization.Vietnam is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” At least 18 people are currently detained for expressing their views freely online. This makes it the world’s third largest prison for bloggers and cyber-dissidents, after China and Iran.

As our sector begins a journey of recovery, interns will engage firsthand in the arts and create networks that help launch their careers.”Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the program timeline has been extended to allow for more flexibility for both interns and work sites, with part-time and remote internships available.

kali9/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(GOLDSBORO, N.C.) — A 12-year-old allegedly shot and killed a home intruder during an armed robbery early Saturday in North Carolina, police said.A resident of the apartment was also shot by the masked intruders during the incident, according to the Goldsboro Police Department.Officers responding to a report of a shooting at the apartment shortly before 1 a.m. found one of the residents, a 73-year-old woman, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, police said.A second person suffering from an apparent gunshot wound was found at an intersection half a block from the apartment, police said. He was identified by police as Khalil Herring, 19, of Goldsboro.Both shooting victims were brought to a local hospital, where Herring died from his injuries, according to police. The 73-year-old victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and is in stable condition, police said.Preliminary evidence suggests that Herring was allegedly one of two masked suspects who “forced their way” into the apartment, “demanded money” and shot the elderly resident, the Goldsboro Police Department said.The 12-year-old, described by police as an occupant of the residence, then allegedly shot at the suspects in self-defense, “causing them to flee the area,” the department said.Charges against the juvenile shooter are not anticipated, the department said.It is unclear what the relationship is between the juvenile and the 73-year-old resident. The police department is not releasing any additional information about the case, a spokesperson told ABC News Saturday.An investigation into the armed robbery and shootings is underway.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
