World trade picks up again as economy begins to recover

first_img WORLD trade continued to rebound strongly in the first half of this year, rising by over a quarter from year-ago levels, with emerging economies showing particularly powerful export growth, World Trade Organisation (WTO) figures showed yesterday.Trade typically grows and contracts at much faster rates than the overall economy, but the WTO data confirm the strength of the global recovery in the first half of this year.Global exports of merchandise goods, measured by value in current dollars not adjusted for price changes, were 25.8 per cent higher in the second quarter than a year earlier, after a 25.7 per cent rise in the first quarter, WTO statistics showed.That meant trade in the first half of the year was about 25 per cent higher by value than a year earlier, but still below its mid-2008 peaks.The second-quarter rise in Russia and other former Soviet republics was 43.9 per cent, and in Asia 37.5 per cent. Even North America, including Mexico, outpaced the global figure, with a rise of 28.5 per cent, but export growth in Europe at 13.2 per cent grew at only half the overall global rate.The figures are based on monthly statistics from about 70 economies representing about 90 per cent of world trade.

Eddie Jones wins Rugby Book of the Year

first_imgThe England coach’s autobiography has gained recognition at the Telegraph Sports Book Awards. RW appraises the book and the lessons that shaped Eddie Jones’s career Secrets behind the smile: Eddie Jones at the 2020 Six Nations launch in London (Sportsfile/Getty) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Eddie Jones wins Rugby Book of the YearThe World Cup eluded him, a possible third Six Nations title is on hold. But England boss Eddie Jones has bagged one trophy this season after his 2019 autobiography, My Life and Rugby, was named Rugby Book of the Year at the Telegraph Sports Book Awards.BUY NOW with AmazonAfter seeing off a strong field that included his old rival Warren Gatland, Jones said: “I’m delighted. I’m also really pleased for the publishers Macmillan and (ghostwriter) Don McRae. They did such a great job in putting the book together, so this is great recognition for them.“It’s nice that people have enjoyed the book and hopefully they’ve got something out of it as well. Thank you to the panel for selecting the book for this award.”Jones follows another coach, Ben Ryan, in winning the award, which embraces rugby books published in Britain and Ireland during the 2019 calendar year. Eddie Jones: My Life and Rugby is published by Macmillan, RRP £20.BUY NOW with AmazonFor all the latest news, follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.center_img TAGS: Book Review Stardust: Mark Ella, part of a stunningly gifted family that Jones was lucky enough to grow up with (Getty)The ‘Randwick Way’, pioneered by Pat Howard’s grandfather Cyril Towers and taught later by Bob Dwyer, featured straight running, short passing, quick ball movement and constant support, and when played close to the opposition defence was almost impossible to stop.It shaped Jones’s coaching and underpinned the Brumbies’ success around the turn of the century. The Aussie franchise operated a highly structured game designed to get their best attackers running at the opposition’s worst defenders in the third phase of play.At its height, just about everybody tried to copy them and Jones writes, in the wake of the Brumbies’ delectable 36-3 rout of the Sharks in the 2001 Super 12 final: “Rugby will never feel quite the same again for me.”Party time: Jones, right, celebrates a Grand Final win for Randwick in 1987 (Fairfax Media)His reign as Wallaby boss started well and included a World Cup final, but things began to go wrong when Brett Robinson was appointed the ARU’s new head of high performance. Robinson had been his captain at Brumbies when Jones was coach; now he was Jones’s boss and the relationship didn’t work.Jones says he’s not good at managing up and that episode – which ended with his sacking in 2005 – taught him never to get involved with a union’s problems but simply to manage the national team.In fact, if there’s a single reason why you should enjoy this book it’s because of the way Jones explains how so many of his experiences and observations influenced his future thinking and led him to operate more successfully.Examples are numerous, beginning with Ian Chappell’s bullish leadership of the Australia cricket team and Jones’s teaching years at the International Grammar School in Sydney.Classroom lessons: at International Grammar School in 1987, where Jones taught geography and PEHe learnt never to trust administrators after the Japan union went back on a pledge to put him and Glen Ella in charge of the country’s RWC 1999 campaign. He learnt to always prepare for the unexpected after a late arrival at Ellis Park for an International. He learnt to be more sensitive to younger players from his shortcomings as a father to his daughter Chelsea.He learnt how having an “independent sounding board”, a role he fulfilled for 13 weeks with the 2007 World Cup-winning Boks, could benefit a management team and with England he employed Neil Craig largely to monitor his own coaching behaviour.And he learnt heaps from engaging with the likes of Pep Guardiola and Ric Charlesworth, the latter “the most interesting coach in world sport” and an expert in how to maximize ‘performance conversation’ – the downtime in a match when the ball is not in play.Pep talk: Pep Guardiola’s coaching ability left Jones “embarrassed” by his own shortcomings (Man City)Jones admits that, aside from that short spell with the Boks, he struggled to enjoy rugby from 2003-08. Yet he is addicted to the game, to such an extent that he spends holidays coaching at one of his former clubs, Suntory. He ran a session for Japanese schoolchildren the day before November’s World Cup final.“My purpose is to coach rugby. I’m not much good at anything else,” Jones says. “I don’t have a long list of interesting hobbies or a bucket list of crazy adventures to complete. I just like living a simple life and coaching rugby. It’s hard to explain the joy I get out of it.” Such is the extent of Jones’s head-spinning experiences at the rugby coalface, part of the challenge was packing his life story into a book light enough to pick up. That Macmillan achieved it is borne out by print sales that quickly soared past 100,000 – a big number for a sports title in the ever-growing digital age.The book opens with the drama of Japan’s defeat of South Africa at the 2015 World Cup. Jones smashes his walkie-talkie in anger when Michael Leitch declines to opt for the late kick at goal that would secure a draw, but in the next moment acknowledges his captain’s bravery.Japan scored from the scrum, Jones was hailed for masterminding rugby’s greatest upset, and England came calling a few weeks later. Such is the ‘sliding doors’ nature of sport.Delirium: toppling the Boks in 2015 – one of Jones’s four most memorable matches as a coach (Getty)If he has enjoyed his time at the helm for England, it’s not glaringly obvious from the book. He writes: “When I watch so much English club rugby, I often wonder: ‘Is it ever going to change? Whether it’s cultural, the length of the season, the weather, the different competitions or the number of games, the widespread lack of imagination and skill is an anchor that the competition seems unable to lift.”Later he is critical of – in his view – an English tendency to want to be told what to do, rather than be questioning and proactive. He says the Brumbies team that he led to Super 12 success was the most intelligent group of players he’s encountered, followed by the 2007 Springboks.His fiercest criticism is saved for the media, whom he attacks with a regularity I’ve not seen before in a rugby book. He says that Sir Alex Ferguson’s best piece of advice to him was not to read the papers but evidently Jones devours every word because otherwise how would he know that “a lot of (the English media), particularly the more experienced ones, are miserable when we win and miserable when we lose… there is an element of absurdity to the coverage because the English media feeds off hysteria… while they lunch and we work, they misplace opinion for fact. The vanity is astounding.”Love-hate relationship? Jones has more hate than love for the media, judging from his book (Getty)Scathing he may be but Jones appreciates the power of the fourth estate, manipulating them to his advantage, as when he got Steve Hansen answering questions about ‘pressure’ in the week of the RWC 2019 semi-final. Jones has engaged a communications expert, David Pembroke, for more than 20 years to help shape his messages and they converse almost daily.Those of you who read the 2018 biography, Rugby Maverick, will be familiar with the key stepping stones of Jones’s rugby journey. But My Life and Rugby enables you to devour the detail in the man’s own words.His family history is littered with pain and prejudice, with his Japanese mother Nellie being interned in America during World War Two and later subjected to racism in Japan and Australia. The young Eddie used sport as a ticket to inclusion and was blessed to grow up with the Ella brothers, Gary, Glen and Mark; the Matraville High School and Randwick teams in which they and Jones played have achieved legendary status, Randwick reaching 16 consecutive Grand Finals from 1977-92 and winning 12 of them.last_img read more

Scotland beat Italy at Murrayfield

first_imgMonday Mar 2, 2009 Scotland beat Italy at Murrayfield Scotland beat Italy in a convincing manner at Murrayfield this past weekend to record their first win of this years the Nations championship. Simon Danielli scored an excellent try, helping the hosts to a 26-6 win.“It feels great at Murrayfield, getting the win,” Danielli, scorer of Scotland’s first try, said. “I thought we really deserved it. The forwards were really good today; they gave the backs some space.”Both sides went into the showdown having lost their opening two fixtures, but though Italy had beaten Scotland in the previous two tournaments, they made too many handling errors to seriously threaten a third consecutive win.Chris Paterson kicked Scotland into an early 6-0 lead with two penalties and though Italy fought back, with a drop goal from Sergio Parisse, Phil Godman then kicked a penalty to make it 9-3 to Scotland.The home side made a break through on 34 minutes when Danielli tore down the right flank for the first try of the afternoon. Godman converted and Italy’s Andrea Marcato then missed with a penalty from near the halfway line, making it 16-3 at halftime.Italy squandered chances through poor handling and wayward discipline, repeatedly dropping the ball in scoring positions.Luke McLean cut Scotland’s lead to 16-6 with a 55th minute penalty, but Scott Gray then dived over in the 60th minute and Paterson converted to make it 23-5.Paterson then kicked a 68th minute penalty to complete the scoring, leaving Italy rock bottom of the table.

Billy Connolly on compassion fatigue

If you use too much somehow you don’t have compassion left any more. “Oh, I’ve been far too compassionate this month. I’ll be cold heart next month”.“What nonsense! If you can just change compassion to love, you can see how ridiculous it is. “I’ve got love fatigue. I’ve only got a wee bit of love to go round.”“Crap! Let me tell you something. You have been impressive so far with the money you’ve given, the time and the energy you’ve given to these amazing causes and it isn’t easy – it’s a long-term commitment – whether it’s because of war or some political disturbance or famine or natural disaster. It is a very long-term commitment.“Even right here, for instance, in Mozambique the water’s very dirty and people wash their clothes and animals go in it and all sorts and they used to drink it. But now there’s little wells being dug for fresh drinking water and this kind of thing goes on and on and on. It’s a long-term project and it’s great to stand here and say I’m very proud of you. Don’t listen to talk about compassion fatigue.”Wine Relief’s “The Good Nose” magazine costs £1 of which 90p will be donated to Comic Relief. Howard Lake | 2 March 1999 | News “Don’t listen to talk about compassion fatigue”, argued comedian Billy Connolly in his 1995 film in Mozambique for Comic Relief. This year’s Wine Relief magazine for Comic Relief republishes his stirring call to give and keep giving.Wine Relief, in support of this month’s Comic Relief campaign, has published a magazine which includes the text of Billy Connolly’s criticism of the concept of “compassion fatigue” which he explained in his 1995 film “Return to Nose and Beak”, filmed in Mozambique.It is a stirring and compelling call to donors and indirectly to fundraisers.

They believe that the current and longstanding public policy that lotteries must benefit good causes is in jeopardy because of proposed changes to prize competition laws.The submission calls calls for the definitions of ‘lotteries’ (games determined by chance) and ‘prize competitions’ (games involving skill) to be amplified to deal with twenty-first century developments such as premium-rate lines, text messages and the Internet and to ensure that charities continue to benefit from the proceeds of lotteries.

first_img Follow the news on India Reporters Without Borders appeals again to the Indian government to set up a national plan for the protection of journalists amid a continuing wave of physical attacks on media personnel. RSF_en Organisation July 22, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Renewed call for protection plan after third journalist murdered News News Help by sharing this information News RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 Receive email alerts Raghavendra Dube, the 44-year-old owner and editor of Khushboo Ujala, a local weekly in Mumbai, the capital of the western state of Maharashtra, last week became the third Indian journalist to be murdered this year.His body was found near Mira Road police station, in a Mumbai suburb, at around 5:30 a.m. on 17 July, just half an hour after he left the police station, where he had been helping a police investigation into an attack on two other journalists. He was beaten and stabbed to death.Although the murder motive has yet to be determined, sources said he often helped the local police by informing them about bars that were operating illegally. The police investigating his murder have arrested several suspects.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to Raghavendra Dube’s family and colleagues,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “The investigation into this barbaric murder must be thorough and transparent in order to shed light on all the circumstances and bring those responsible to justice.”“We reiterate our appeal to the Indian authorities to establish a national plan for the protection of journalists and other news providers in order to ensure the safety of those who contribute to the public debate in Indian society.”Dube’s murder appears to be linked to the previous evening’s attack on two other journalists, Mumbai Headlines reporter Santosh Mishra, 45, and Dabang Khabr reporter Shashi Sharma, 49. They were covering a police raid on a Mumbai suburb bar called the White House when they were attacked by around ten of the bar’s employees for photographing its owner, Ganesh Kamath. Four police officers, including an inspector, looked on without intervening, they said. Both journalists were hospitalized with serious injuries.Violence against journalists in India usually goes unpunished. Although an alarming number of journalists have been killed in connection with their coverage of corruption, politics, crime or other sensitive subjects, the government has yet to adopt any measures to protect media personnel.This year’s two other media murder victims were Jagendra Singh, allegedly killed by police officers because of his coverage of illegal activities by certain Uttar Pradesh state officials, and Sandeep Kothari, who was murdered in connection with his coverage of organized crime in Madhya Pradesh.Climate of violenceMany other media freedom violations, including physical attacks on journalists, continue to be reported.Manashree Pathak, a 24-year-old reporter for Marathi-language TV station ABP Majha, was verbally harassed and then physically attacked by a group of men while covering a deadly fire in Mumbai on 16 July. Her cameraman, Narayan Parmar, and two other ABP Majha journalists, Sachin Gaad and Shrikant Sankpal, were also hit when they tried to defend her.Katak TV reporter Satyajit Sen and his cameraman were beaten and their equipment was damaged by a railway security officer while they were covering a protest by the passengers of a train that had been delayed for several hours on 29 June.Uttar Pradesh journalist Haider Khan was beaten unconscious and then dragged behind a motorcycle for a hundred metres on 13 June after writing about questionable land expropriations.India’s journalists are favourite targets for all those opposed to freely and independently reported news and information. By repeatedly ignoring the need to protect journalists and by denying the current climate of violence, the federal government is just encouraging the enemies of media freedom.India is ranked 136th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.center_img March 3, 2021 Find out more IndiaAsia – Pacific to go further In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival IndiaAsia – Pacific June 10, 2021 Find out more (Logo : cartoon by Aseem Trivedi) India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media News April 27, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
