Socrates had threatened to resign if the cuts – the fourth package of reforms designed to help the country avoid a rescue – were rejected. But all five opposition parties voted against the measures and the primary opposition Social Democrat party called for an election. “This political crisis has very grave consequences for the confidence Portugal needs from institutions and the financial markets,” Socrates said.He presented his resignation two hours after the vote to President Anibal Cavaco da Silva, who said he would meet all political parties on Friday but the government would continue to hold authority until then.Socrates said he would remain in power in a caretaker capacity but the country faces weeks of political uncertainty until an election can be held in two months’ time.The yield on Portuguese government bonds shot to euro lifetime highs of 8.18 per cent preceeding the vote, a level the market views as unsustainable and that makes a bailout almost inevitable.The collapse of the government leaves Portugal without permanent leadership for a crucial two-day summit starting today in Brussels, where the EU?will hammer out a solution to the bloc’s debt problems. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 23 March 2011 10:04 pm whatsapp Portugal PM forced to quit Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Italy v England matches latest to be hit by coronavirus

first_imgMen’s, women’s and U20 championship fixtures postponed due to outbreak LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Italy v England matches latest to be hit by coronavirusThe Italy v England matches – men’s, women’s and U20 – on the final weekend of the Six Nations are the latest to be affected by the coronavirus outbreak.The Italian government decreed on Wednesday night that all sport in the country must be played behind closed doors until 3 April to try to stop the spread of Covid-19 and Six Nations organisers have decided to postpone the three championship fixtures in Italy next weekend rather than play in empty stadiums.England’s men were due to face the Italians at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Saturday 14 March, with the women’s and U20 Sunday fixtures scheduled for Padua and Verona respectively.A Six Nations statement read: “The decision has now been taken to postpone the three matches between Italy and England, with the intention to reschedule them at later dates.“Based on the information that is currently available, all other Six Nations matches are set to go ahead as scheduled. As previously stated, Six Nations fully intends to complete all 15 games across all three championships when time allows.”More than 100 people have died in Italy because of the coronavirus and it has had more cases than any other European country.A statement from the Italian government read: “There will be no sporting events with the presence of the public in order to prevent further contagion opportunities.” When in Rome: Italy and England line up for the anthems at Stadio Olimpico in 2018 (Getty Images) center_img The April issue of Rugby World magazine – focusing on a new generation of Six Nations stars – is out now.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Having already postponed this weekend’s Ireland v Italy matches, the big challenge for the Six Nations now will be trying to find dates in the calendar to reschedule them. There are club fixtures on every weekend until the end of the season and then there are the summer tours.When matches were postponed in the 2001 championship due to the foot-and-mouth outbreak they were not played until September and October of that year. Further measures being put in place to contain the coronavirus could also affect the ability to reschedule matches.The England v Wales and Scotland v France matches this weekend are still due to go ahead, but there are also doubts over the France v Ireland match in Paris on 14 March. France are the only team still able to win a Grand Slam this year.There have already been postponements in the Guinness Pro14 and the league organisers have said: “In the event that any future games are postponed and no alternative dates can be found to ensure the fixture is fulfilled, the board of Celtic Rugby DAC has agreed that both teams will be awarded two match points and the game will be deemed a 0-0 draw.”The Six Nations will not want to go down this route given the financial impact on unions of cancelling a Test match, but it will be a challenge to find new fixture dates for multiple postponements.last_img read more

Political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal speaks on mass shootings

first_imgFree Mumia Abu-Jamal!Transcribed from Oct. 2 broadcast from Prison Radio.The sounds of gunfire crackle through the night air, but few seem to realize its import.Some think it’s firecrackers; some, the thump, thump of helicopter blades chopping through the air; some even think it is sound effects to accentuate tunes of a Country Western band.Then, the music stops, and people fall, their bodies sprouting expanding flowers of deep crimson.And slowly, as in a dream (or a real-life horror show), comes the realization, and screams rip through the air, grim accompaniment to the sound of automatic weapons fire.A new city joins the carnage that is uniquely American. In the space of 15 minutes, dozens are dead, and over half a thousand wounded. A new record, a uniquely American one, is made.Las Vegas, Nevada — America’s deadliest, modern-day mass shooting.Politicians and cops hurl curses at a corpse — a man once, yes, but now, a number, for he is the last victim of his own hand.Politicians have never seemed so helpless than at times like these.Politicians — the most powerful people in powerful systems — offer prayers for the dead, and little else.Why are they so helpless?Because they’ve sold their souls to the gun lobby, and because the killer killed himself, he is beyond threats of prison or death sentences.They will bow their heads, pray or even order flags flown low on their poles.And little else.For like the killings of children in 2012, or the slaughter of dancers at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando a year ago, they have nothing but prayers to offer.As we witness the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history — that is, until the next time.Mumia Abu-Jamal © 2017FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


New Study Shows Lean Pork Beneficial in DASH Eating Plan

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleGet Answers to GMO Questions at GMO Answers WebsiteNext articleDonnelly Questions USDA on Plan for the Future of Rural Communities Andy Eubank A new pork checkoff-funded study through Purdue University has found when adults eat lean pork instead of chicken and fish as their main protein source – the blood pressure benefits were the same. Researchers studied 19 overweight or obese older adults – 13 women and six men – with elevated blood pressure. Participants were randomly assigned to consume the DASH diet for two six-week periods that included chicken and fish or lean pork as the major protein source.  For adults following the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension – or DASH – eating plan – this study shows they can include lean pork in their diet. Purdue University’s Dr. Wayne Campbell – lead author of the study – says the DASH diet has been recognized by government and health organizations as an eating pattern that can promote health and help decrease the risk of chronic diseases.

What we’re reading: A first for Chicago

Today, we have Chicago naming a new mayor, a new subpoena in the Mueller investigation and new fluoride standards for water bottles.Chicago elects its first black female and openly gay mayorA monumental moment took place in Chicago last night as the city elected its first black female and openly gay mayor.According to NBC News, the runoff between Lori Lightfoot and Toni Preckwinkle was called on April 2 shortly before 8 p.m. Upon her election, Lightfoot said, “In this election Toni and I were competitors, but our differences are nothing compared to what we can achieve together. Now that it’s over, I know we will work together for the city that we both love.”This runoff was iconic for the city, because both candidates were going to be Chicago’s first black female mayor.House Judiciary Committee approves subpoena for Mueller reportEarly Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee sanctioned its chairman to use a subpoena in hopes of forcing the Justice Department to give Congress a full copy of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report and all other evidence, according to the New York Times.The subpoena is not being issued immediately as Attorney General William P. Barr is deciding how much of the 400-page report he wants to share with the lawmakers.The committee has also approved five other subpoenas for five former White House aides who are believed to be relevant in an investigation in a possible obstruction of justice.FDA approves new fluoride standard for bottled waterCNN reported the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is suggesting a lower concentration level of fluoride in bottled water.The new regulation would allow for domestically packaged and imported water to contain 0.7 milligrams per liter, a slight reduction of the 0.8 milligram per liter already allowed by the FDA.Some scientists and environmental groups still view this number as too high and believe it could still be harmful to human health.The new standard would only affect bottled water where fluoride is added and would not affect fluoride levels where the water source may contain fluoride.Deadly floods in IranIran has been hit with three deadly floods in the last two weeks. ABC News reported that the death toll is still on the rise, but so far 62 people have been found dead.Iranian President Hassan Rouhani claimed that the U.S. imposed sanctions blocking international relief assistance for the people affected by the flood is an “unprecedented crime.”These floods have hurt hundreds of villages, towns and cities in the western half of the country. A new state of emergency has been issued by authorities in some of these areas.That’s all we have for today. Check back tomorrow for more.
