We’ll keep digging in – Doak

first_img “The first two games were pretty difficult (for us),” he said of the loss to Toulon, who scored tries through Bryan Habana and Delon Armitage and had 13 points from the boot of Leigh Halfpenny, and their opening reverse at Leicester. “But we’ve got four games still to go and the potential to pick up 20 points in that. “Obviously we’ve got to go away to Toulon and that’s going to be a pretty tough ask. “I suppose after the Tigers it makes it disappointing that we didn’t come out better than that. “But it’s a long season and we’ll just have to keep digging in and we’ve got to pick ourselves up.” Ulster captain Rory Best admitted the home side’s scrum had not functioned as well as had been hoped against a mighty Toulon eight. “Against a big pack like that we knew we had to move them around a bit and to do that you’ve got to get quick ball,” he said. “It’s something we’ve worked hard on and we needed returns on that but we couldn’t get the ball we wanted. “We got penalised a bit at scrum time, which we were a bit disappointed with. We felt we were better than the amount of penalties we conceded and we felt we should have had more (of a positive outcome) than that as we had the upper hand at times but we probably weren’t as neat and tidy as we’d been before.” The French side were impressive 23-13 winners at the Kingspan Stadium, putting themselves in a strong position to progress but leaving Ulster’s hopes of making the last eight appearing remote. Doak was trying to look on the bright side, however. Ulster coach Neil Doak refused to admit defeat in his side’s European campaign despite a second straight loss in Pool Three at the hands of champions Toulon. Toulon skipper Carl Hayman was clearly delighted with bagging the away win and the position it now puts his side in regarding their ultimate aim of winning the group. “There are not a lot of teams that come here and win, and for us to come here and get a victory, we’re really happy,” he said. “We knew it was going to be a tough battle and a very important part of the game. The scrum, rolling maul and breakdown is always a hotly contested part of the game – it was an area that we knew we’d have to come here and dominate. “It’s an area of our game that we try to work hard on every week – it’s the basics of rugby and we are happy to come away with the win. “The intercept from Delon (Armitage) was a real key turning point in the game that gave us breathing space. It was a crucial score at a crucial time against the wind. “We already had a good lead at half-time and we knew that we would always have to get a try in the second half. “I was really proud of the guys in defence. We talked over the last few days what we’d need to win here and we respect the Ulster team hugely for what they have done here in the previous years and their home record, so I’m really proud of the guys the way they stuck in.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Latino leaders discuss role in conservation campaigns

first_imgLeaders in politics, business and advocacy said Wednesday that the Latino community is one of the most involved in the fight for conservation during an event at the Davidson Conference Center.Policymaker · California State Senator Kevin de León discusses the role of deadlock and environomental policy on Wednesday. – Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanExperts at the California League of Conservation Voters Education Fund’s “Salud, Familia, Comunidad: California Latino Voters and Our Air, Land, and Water” also said that global preservation should be a more pressing issue for state policymakers.The conference’s panel featured Sen. Kevin de León, representing California’s 22nd Senate District; Assemblyman Ricardo Lara, representing California’s 50th Assembly District; Veronica Gutierrez, vice president of local public affairs for Southern California Edison; Irma Muñoz, CEO and president of Mujeres de la Tierra; and Marta Segura of Diverse Strategies for Organizing, Inc.Other featured commentators included Sarah Rose, CEO of the California League of Conservation Voters Education Fund; Ben Tulchin, president of Tulchin Research; and moderator Victor Griego of the Diverse Strategies for Organizing, Inc.While introducing the panel, Rose said that the state can improve its current environmental policies.All the panelists agreed that California needs to become more active in its policies regarding the preservation of the earth, but also that Latinos serve as one of the most active communities regarding these issues.Lara, a state representative, emphasized the effect of environmental issues on Latino communities. Latinos in Southeast Los Angeles had an 80 percent chance of contracting some sort of cancer, Lara said. Children in Latino communities are forced to play in the street because there are no parks and water is not affordable, he said.According to a study from the CLCV Education Fund that looks at the environmental attitudes of California Latino voters, 90 percent said they believe that protecting the environment and creating jobs are not exclusive. Additionally, 66 percent refer to themselves as conservationists.Veronica Gutierrez places her faith in the various communities with agriculture backgrounds who immigrated to the United States. She referred to Latinos as the “original folk with the reusable bag,” arguing that Latinos come from a history of farming and agriculture, and understand more than most the importance of conserving our natural resources.Some of the issues that Latinos list as important in the CLCV survey include water pollution, renewable energy, energy conservation, toxic pollution resulting in disease and conserving fish and wildlife habitats.Concerns from the Latino community seem to be substantiated by recent data. According to Executive Summary from the California League of Conservation Voters, 25 percent of Latinos in California have at least one household member suffering from asthma.“We’re speaking different languages at times, but we all want the same thing — we want clean air and clean water,” said de León.last_img read more

Rick Ross speaks to students about drugs, life in prison

first_imgThough the crack epidemic is associated with the 1980s, former drug trafficker Rick Ross said the epidemic still affects people today.Ross spoke Wednesday about the history of the crack epidemic and its current impact on society at a discussion hosted by the Gould School of Law.Jody Armour, professor of law,who hosted the event with former prosecutor Antonio J. Moore, kicked off the speech, “White Reign; the Rise and Fall of a Crack Empire,” by summarizing a report by Secretary of State John Kerry.“The crack plague was the product of certain foreign policy priorities taking precedence over drug enforcement priorities,” Armour said. “That’s what was found in the Kerry report in 1987.”Ross said that it was opportunity that separates him from the people he knew in prison.“When I left prison, I had tears in my eyes because I was glad to come home,” Ross said, “but then I left friends [in prison] that I know were no worse of a person than I was and that the only reason that I was getting out was because the police just did not catch me right.”Ross said the lack of job opportunities in South Central during the 1980s contributed to a rise in drug dealing.“They are usually the guys who are willing to take a chance —trailblazers, almost,” Ross said. “Because, without that drive and without that energy, you will not do good in selling drugs.”Armour said the crack epidemic in the United States was based on international conflicts in the 1980s between the U.S. and Nicaragua. Armour said the CIA helped to support a counter-revolutionary group in Nicaragua — the Contras — and used cocaine trade to support their efforts.Armour also said this initial support of the drug trade was not meant to target the black community.“What you had was a decision made that national security interests were more important than drug enforcement interests,” Armour said. “That’s because there is no personal animist against black America, rather it’s concern for the greater good.”Ross said that since his release from prison, he has been using the same business skills he developed as a drug dealer to start new legitimate businesses, such as launching a T-shirt company and making a documentary.“It is unbelievable how well the same type of skills work,” Ross said.Though Ross has served his prison sentence, he is concerned about the current punishments for drug dealers.“I believe that it is high time to say, ‘You know what, these guys have been in prison long enough for non-violent crimes,’” Ross said. “It’s time to cut their sentences, and we should make it retroactive. We should not be punishing guys who have committed non-violent crimes.”last_img read more
