Henry Slade(Exeter Chiefs)Henry Slade – Exeter ChiefsFirst there was Olympic diver Tom Daley – now Plymouth College has produced another exceptional athlete in Exeter and England U18 fly-half Henry Slade. The 18-year-old is juggling his studies in biology, PE and graphic design with playing rugby for the Premiership outfit’s academy. And he’s firmly on England’s radar: having toured South Africa with the national U18 side in 2010, he was a pivotal figure in the party that swept all before them in Australia this August.Slade kicked 14 points in a 19-8 opening win against Australia Academy U19 and then, after stepping down for a 27-0 win over Australia A Schools, he scored a try and three conversions in a 46-19 rout of Australia Schools in Sydney. All of which delighted England Academy coach John Fletcher. “Henry was very good in Australia,” he says, “and the way he plays reminds me of a young Toby Flood or Rory Clegg.“Whereas before players had to leave the South-West to play Premiership rugby, there is now no need to do so, and the Chiefs have got a lot of good players in their academy. The future of Exeter rugby is good and Slade will push George Ford for the U20s fly-half position.”A great nephew of former Portsmouth footballer Geoff Williamson, Slade’s performances have earned him a call-up to this season’s England U20 Elite Player Squad, announced last month by head coach Rob Hunter.Rugby World Verdict: Slade could help the Chiefs stay in the top flight for years to come. Bea AspreyTom Brown – EdinburghTom Brown(Edinburgh)A good mentor is cricital to a youngster’s development, and 21-year-old Tom Brown struck gold with his. The full-back has been shadowing Scotland’s sole Test centurion, Chris Paterson, since joining the Edinburgh academy, and he made his debut for the senior side last September in the home victory over Leinster.However, as valuable as Paterson’s experience has been, he is a tough nut to crack, so his departure for the World Cup in New Zealand last month gave Brown the chance to show what he can do. Brown is strong with the ball in hand andgood in contact, but his greatest asset is his pace. He’s a real threat in attack, and can be seen beating defenders all over the park. His skill-set has been noticed by the national selectors, and he has represented Scotland from U17 to U20 level, going to the Junior World Championships in Japan in 2009 and Argentina in 2010. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS For Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170 Brown was unavailable for selection at the start of the season due to a dead leg, but Scotland’s National Academy coach Bryan Easson has no doubt that he will soon be a regular feature on Edinburgh’s starting team sheet.“Tom’s a very hard worker and he’s easy to coach,” says Easson. “He’s very popular in the squad and very easy-going, and he’s easily made the transition to playing in the senior side. His kicking game needs work but he’s aware of this and he has the potential to be involved in the 2015 World Cup.”Rugby World Verdict: A great prospect – Paterson will be looking over his shoulder!

PhiladelphiaA protest against Philadelphia Police Terror on June 13 drew around 1,500 demonstrators to the Osage Avenue site where Philadelphia police dropped a military-grade bomb on the MOVE organization on May 13, 1985. Eleven Black men, women and children were murdered after police and city officials ordered fire fighters to “let the fire burn.” Police shot at MOVE members who tried to escape. June 13 march, Philadelphia. (WW Photo: Joe Piette)While remembering the MOVE victims, today’s protest stood in solidarity with George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and countless other Black people murdered by the state in recent years, and with the growing movement to defund and abolish the policeMike Africa, whose parents, MOVE 9 members Mike Africa Sr. and Debbie Africa, spent over 40 years in prison, called out city officials who are currently offering up apologies for prior blatant acts of racism, as if they were enough to stop the growing movement. “The politicians are dragging their feet as if nothing has happened. People want justice, and we want it now!” Africa said. “And we want Mumia free now!”Following the rally, a spirited march made its way through predominantly Black neighborhoods in West Philadelphia. The response from community residents was electrifying. People came out on their porches to cheer and join in chants. Several joined the march.At a closing rally at Malcolm X Park, speakers raised 13 demands from the radical Black organizing community in Philadelphia. Among the final speakers were high school students from the Philadelphia Student Union who demanded that “every single cop in schools must be out by the time schools reopen. The $30 million used to keep police in schools should go to have safe learning environments. We want police abolition — not more reforms!”Event organizers included the MOVE Organization, BLM Philly, Philly for REAL Justice, Human Rights Coalition Philadelphia, Abolitionists Law Center, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Ubuntu Philadelphia and Mobilization4Mumia.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

At least 70 media workers have been laid off as a result of its closure under a rarely-enforced rule forbidding news media to do original investigative reporting outside the province where they are registered.Based in Beijing but registered in Inner Mongolia, the newspaper published an investigative report in July about allegedly illegal bad-debt accounting by a branch of the Agricultural Bank of China in Changde, in the southern province of Hunan.One of the weekly’s journalists filed a suit on 29 October against the Inner Mongolia Bureau of Press and Publications alleging that the three-month ban it issued in September was an abusive administrative decision that damaged the newspaper’s reputation.

The VFI claim 30,000 jobs have been lost in the pub trade in the last five years alone at an estimated current annual cost to the exchequer of €630m. Advertisement Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking at the meeting, the President of the VFI, Gerry Mellett, himself a rural publican based in Carlow said; “The pub industry is on its knees and more than one pub is closing every day. The industry is haemorrhaging jobs and last year over 5,000 people went out of work from our industry. That is the equivalent of five “Avivas” and next year is looking even bleaker. We have experienced our worst October in over two decades after years of decline and we need urgent action to save jobs.”The publicans, who are all members of the Vintners’ Federation of Ireland (“VFI”), gathered outside Dáil Éireann to highlight the major concerns and challenges facing thousands of pubs, predominantly family-run businesses, throughout Ireland.Photo shows John McMahon, from Limerick who joined the hundreds of publicans, all Vintners’ Federation of Ireland members, as they walked to Dáil Éireann.
