Hotshot: Dragons and Wales U20 wing Joe Goodchild

first_img TAGS: Dragons Find out more about Joe Goodchild, the wing who only took up the game in his mid-teens Red alert: Joe Goodchild poses for pictures after a Wales U20 game (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Dragons and Wales U20 wing Joe Goodchild Date of birth 12 April 1998 Born Newport Region Dragons Country Wales Position Back threeWhen did you first play? When I was 15 or 16. My mates were playing so I went along to Garndiffaith. Before that I did gymnastics and a bit of football.How did you link up with the Dragons? I played one or two games for Ponty Schools, then we had a tournament to get drafted to the Dragons U16s. I was picked up from that and went from U16s to U18s and from there to Wales U18. I’ve been in the academy since then.What positions have you played? I’ve always been a winger. I’m tall and fast so they chucked me out there. I’ve also played full-back a bit. The way I want to play seems to fit with wing or full-back.How do you want to play? Running rugby. What feels right at that moment, beating defenders and having a go.What was it like making your Pro14 debut at the Millennium Stadium against Scarlets? Unbelievable. It was a completely different experience to anything else I’ve experienced. As we came out there were fireworks and fire, then how many people were there. As soon as you see that you want more.Who’s been the biggest influence on your career? Probably my parents. My dad played for Pontypool and Newport. Whenever I’ve been down, they’ve been there to pick me back up.What are your goals for next season? I want to kick on to the first team. There’s an U23 league coming in, so I’ll try to put in performances in that and pre-season games. Hopefully I can put a marker down and progress from there.What do you do away from rugby? I just chill out with my mates and try to switch off. It’s nice to have mates who I don’t always talk about rugby with. If I can, I’ll watch them play at local clubs.So you keep in touch with the grass roots?Big time. That’s how we got here at the end of the day. If it wasn’t for those clubs, I wouldn’t be here. RW VERDICT: Goodchild scored a key try in Wales’ win over Australia in the opening round of the Junior World Championship. His pace could be a significant weapon for the Dragons as they aim to climb the Pro14 table next season.This article originally appeared in the August 2018 issue of Rugby World magazine.

April Brings Lower Mortgage Rates

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear TAGSMortgage Previous articleIn case you missed it: Richard Anderson plea highlights the week in newsNext articleUCF Business Incubator Apopka turns 5 this month Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! At the beginning of the year, mortgage rates for the year fell from the previous year to hang around 4.2% across the board, making it the first time in several years that the rate started above 4%. From January to March, these rates rose steadily with March rates around the middle of the month averaging around 4.25%. In our local area, most lenders were much higher with rates averaging around 4.35%. Thankfully, April has brought lower rates along with our April showers with the current week beginning much lower and ending slightly lower than the week before. Overall April has been very favorable moving from the previous 4.25+% to hanging around 4.07% as the national average. Although this is lower, we’re still waiting to see a marked difference between the yearly average so far of 4.125-4.25%.The most recent influence on market trends is the US air strikes in Syria. Traditionally, a conflict involving the US pushes rates lower at first but quickly bounces back with more information available later on. However, with an exceptionally weak job report, rates pushed lower at least for the moment.This has been very good as rates have come down from as high as 4.5% to about 4.2%, though some still remain slightly higher. As long as the trend continues lower, now is as good a time as any to get a new mortgage. The thing to keep an eye on is when it begins to trend upwards again.* The above mortgage loan information is provided to or obtained by, Bankrate. The rate is based on 30-year fixed rate mortgage and a loan of $300,000.center_img You have entered an incorrect email address!

If no justice for Palestine — then no peace!

first_imgWorkers World Party expresses its utmost solidarity with the people of Palestine, who are facing an increased onslaught of U.S.-Israeli aggression.The Jan. 28 “Peace to Prosperity” plan jointly announced by Israel and the U.S. — after not even the pretense of discussion with the Palestinians — would essentially seize much of what little land is left to Palestinians and continue Israeli military control over an even-more-fragmented Palestine. It would deny the right of return to those driven from their homes and land during the violence of the Nakba in the 1948 formation of Israel.In 1967, when Israel went to war and seized the Golan Heights, the West Bank, Gaza and the Sinai Peninsula, WWP mounted an outraged and continuing protest of that aggression and affirmed unbending solidarity with Palestine.Now in 2020, Palestinians are fiercely united in opposition to the Trump-Netanyahu plan, and WWP unites with them in that opposition. (See  article titled “ ‘Steal of the century’: Palestinians reject U.S. colonial plan” in this issue.)The fascistic proposal marks the end of the Oslo Accord pretense of 1993 that it would allow a Palestinian state with any form of independence. The plan is a blatant move to try to end forever the Palestinian struggle for national liberation.Trump described the plan as the “deal of the century.” But it is more accurately dubbed the “steal of the century” —  a blatant land grab in order to create “business opportunities” and a captive workforce to make profits for a flailing and failing capitalist system. As Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network notes, the U.S.-Israeli plan “repeatedly demands of its envisioned Palestinian bantustans that they must be ‘business-friendly,’ welcoming to ‘multinational corporations’ and ‘foreign direct investment.’” ( also notes: “This ‘deal’ blatantly enshrines settler colonialism and Zionism without even a facade of concern for allegedly universal principles of justice, sovereignty, self-determination and international law from which Palestinians are systematically excluded.”Palestinians are living in apartheid-like confined areas of land, linked only by heavily militarized and fortified Israeli roads and checkpoints. They are frequently deprived of food, water and electricity by Israeli authorities. They are subjected to arbitrary imprisonment, interrogation and execution for defending their right to their homeland —  their right to existence.Palestinian children are shot for throwing stones, their only weapons, at Israeli soldiers armed with bullpup assault rifles that can be fired at will in semi-automatic or full-automatic mode.Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, collective punishment is considered a war crime. But whole Palestinian neighborhoods and communities are collectively punished — homes and olive orchards bulldozed — even if only one person becomes a leader and acts against Israeli occupation.This new land grab follows the pattern of centuries of capitalist/imperialist crime: settler-colonial occupation and theft of Indigenous lands, genocidal killing of peoples and obliteration of independent nations, exploitation of stolen resources, and building industries for profit with captured or enforced labor.This has been the death-dealing path of U.S. “Manifest Destiny,” now in league with Israel’s Zionism — both state powers using far-right religion as an excuse to justify crimes against humanity for profit.For over a hundred years, the Palestinian people have struggled to keep and remain in their homeland — ever since the 1917 Balfour Declaration by the British began the settler-colonial push to take their land. The situation of the Palestinians became even worse after World War II. The U.S. and other Allies refused to welcome desperate Jewish refugees from Nazi-occupied Europe. Instead those countries gave support to a “solution” that pushed Jewish survivors of the Holocaust to settle in what by 1948 would become Israel — at the expense of the Palestinian people who had been living there for generations.This Jan. 31, as news of the Trump-Netanyahu plan spread through the West Bank, thousands of Palestinians demonstrated in a “Friday of Rage.” And, once more, Israeli soldiers fired live ammunition at unarmed protesters. Now solidarity actions with Palestine have been happening worldwide and throughout the U.S. from Los Angeles to Boston, Columbia, S.C., to Columbus, Ohio.Palestinians, united in outrage, have emphasized that solidarity actions should include support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement and freedom for Palestinian political prisoners, who are leaders of the liberation movement.Those of us living inside the U.S. witness and experience every day the horrific impact of an economic and social system built on settler-colonial genocide against Indigenous peoples and theft of their lands as well as  enslavement and forced labor of African peoples.The same vile system is at work this very minute against the Palestinian people. As we struggle for Indigenous sovereignty and Black liberation, as we denounce continued colonization from the Philippines to Puerto Rico, as we fight to support freedom from imperialist austerity in Latin America and paths toward socialism in Cuba and Venezuela, as we fight against the predations of capitalism everywhere — with that same dedication we are in solidarity with the Palestinian people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Clothes, ammunition tied to fatal Portland protest shooting found in suspect’s home: Officials

first_imgNathan Howard/Getty ImagesBY: MEREDITH DELISO, ABC NEWS    (PORTLAND, Wash.) —  Police found clothing and ammunition connecting a suspect killed during an encounter with authorities Thursday to the death of a pro-Trump protester in Portland, Oregon, days earlier, officials said.Michael Reinoehl, 48, was wanted for murder in the second degree with a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon with a firearm, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said Friday, when he was located by the FBI and U.S. Marshals in Lacey, Washington.The district attorney’s office was preparing to prove that Reinoehl intentionally killed 39-year-old Aaron Danielson during violent protests last weekend between a large caravan of pro-Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter protesters. On Friday, it released previously sealed evidence in its case, including the search warrant and arrest warrant affidavits for Reinoehl.Reinoehl was under surveillance Thursday night when he left an apartment and got into a vehicle, officials said. When officers tried to stop the vehicle, shots were fired and the suspect was killed. Reinoehl allegedly pulled a gun, a law enforcement official told ABC News. There were no other injuries, officials said.During the execution of a search warrant issued Thursday for Reinoehl’s residence, Portland police recovered clothing that matched what he was wearing on Aug. 29, at the time of Danielson’s death, according to the district attorney. They also found ammunition that matched the ballistic evidence recovered from the crime scene, authorities said.The shooting death of Reinoehl is still being investigated, said Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, who did not share more details on the incident.“We still do not have a full understanding of what led to the death of Michael Forest Reinoehl,” Schmidt said in a statement.“The apprehension of a fugitive, in particular one under investigation for murder, is especially dangerous for law enforcement,” he continued. “I am thankful that no one else was injured or killed during last night’s incident in Lacey, Washington, and I appreciate the coordination between law enforcement agencies throughout this investigation.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
