Mathieu Bastareaud admits he lied about being assaulted in New Zealand

first_imgFriday Jun 26, 2009 Mathieu Bastareaud admits he lied about being assaulted in New Zealand Young French centre Mathieu Bastareaud, who initially made claims that hed been attacked by between four and five men in Wellington on the weekend, has now changed his story and admitted that he actually lied about what actually happened.Bastareaud sustained several facial injuries in New Zealand after a night out, with his original story being that he got them from a racial attack by a group of thugs on the streets of Wellington. It has now been revealed, that they actually came from a drunken fall.He suffered a broken eye socket, facial cuts, and severe bruising. The attack was such an embarrassment for the country ahead of the 2011 World Cup, that the New Zealand Prime Minister even issued a written apology, along with the mayor of Wellington.He is now back in France, where he came clean about the story. Mayor Kerry Prendergast is furious, especially as it seems that he wasnt alone in the cover up.“There were other players involved, the team doctor was involved, the coach (was involved) because he got sent back so quickly. This is wider than just one player and I think we need an apology.“My understanding is that other players knew about it, so we cant just say that this is one player. Clearly the doctor who did the stitching and the fact that he was sent back… other people knew.”Security footage has shown him returning to his hotel uninjured with four other people, at 5:22am. He’s said that he made up the story to avoid getting in trouble with the French RFU.“On Saturday evening, I returned to the hotel after having drunk too much,” he said.“I fell in my bedroom and scarred my cheekbone on the table in the room. I was ashamed and panicked and I thought I would be sent packing by the team management.“I told the original story because I thought it would be believed, but given the coverage it has subsequently received I thought it would be better to tell the truth.”Were yet to find out what kind of punishment the 20 year old Stade Francais player will receive. Perhaps the shame and worldwide criticism he’ll face is enough at this stage. :: Related Posts :: New Zealand level the series against France in Wellington Time: 04:45ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Court was moved in a Habeas plea against the detention of a person claiming to be a Siddha Medical Practitioner and the producer of an alleged cure medicine for Covid 19. Appreciating that Siddha medicine is the native medicine of southern States, especially Tamil Nadu, the division bench rebuked that “It seems vested interests are acting against development of Siddha and that is the reason why the Siddha medicines are not properly promoted and published in media”. Justices N. Kirubakaran and V. M. Vilumani said that a Siddha Doctor, who prepared a medicine for Covid 19 infection making use of 66 herbs, had submitted the same to the State Government for analysis, however the said medicine was not put to analysis, compelling him to approach Madurai Bench of this Court. Only after the directions given by the Madurai Bench, the medicine was tested and the State Government came out with a statement that the said Siddha medicine has got anti-viral properties. Thereafter, the drug was directed to be sent to the AYUSH Department for analysis and efficacy and to file a report. “Even though Siddha Doctors are independently curing Covid patients successfully and Tamil Media is reporting the same promptly, English media is not giving any importance and recognition to such an important news”, reprimanded the court. “When a Siddha Doctor has come out with the Siddha drug about three months ago, ie., during the initial stages of Covid 19 infection and if the State Government had been prompt enough to analyse the medicine properly and recommend the same to the AYUSH Department, by this time, the new Siddha medicine would have been recognized by the AYUSH Department and the Siddha Doctor, who developed/produced it and the Siddha medicine would have been celebrated throughout India and the nation would have got a cure for Covid 19 pandemic”, scolded the court, adding that this is only “a tip of an iceberg” and that here are many Siddha Doctors who have developed/produced Siddha medicines for Covid 19 infection and other illnesses and have forwarded the same to the State Government. Noting that it is a fact that throughout the world everyone is desperate for a solution to get rid of the pandemic and so far, no cure has been found for treating Covid 19, the bench stated that “when someone comes forward with a remedy for the said disease, it is the bounden duty of the State Government to analyse the medicine to find out whether it has got anti-viral properties to fight the virus”. Commenting that so far, no Indian Doctor or Researcher has developed any medicine for any disease, the bench fumed that “The apathetic attitude exhibited by the Government is not going to help the Siddha Doctors or the Government or the public in general”. The bench observed that it is common knowledge that no allopathic medicine rather no medicine has been found for treating Covid 19 infection. It is said that in all the hospitals, including Private Hospitals only “kabasura kudineer” is given to Covid patients apart from immunity boosting medicines like Vitamin C and Zinc tablets and paracetamol and antibiotics, in case of fever. “Therefore, the Government has to come out with a statement as to what are all the medicines given for treating Covid 19 patients in Tamil Nadu and as to whether Siddha medicines play vital role in curing Covid 19”, asserted the bench, impleading the Ministry OF AYUSH and the Health Department, State of Tamil Nadu, in the present proceedings. The Court raised the following queries to be answered by the newly impleaded respondents: (i) How many Siddha Doctors have, so far, given samples of Siddha drugs developed/produced by them for treating Covid 19 infection for testing/analysis?(ii) How many medicines have been analysed? (iii) How many such medicines have been found to be containing anti-viral properties? (iv) How many such medicines have been recommended to the Department of AYUSH for testing/analysis/approval so far?(v) Whether AYUSH department has tested Siddha drugs and sent report regarding efficacy of the drugs?(vi) How much is the allocation of fund made for development of Siddha system of Medicine and Research for the past 10 years by the State Government? (vii) Are there any research facilities and institutes available in the State of Tamil Nadu for research and development Siddha Medicines? (viii) Whether proper experts have been appointed in those research institute for research work?(ix) What are the details of allotment of funds made by the Department of AYUSH to various systems of Indian Medicine viz., Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy for the past 10 years ? (Details regarding each year in respect of each system has to be produced)(x) How many research institutes/centres of each Indian Medicine Systems have been established?(xi) Whether infrastructure facilities for conducting researches are provided in all the Centres/institutes in respect of each system of medicine?(xii) Is there any indigenous medicine developed as a cure for any illness in Indian alternative medicines on par with allopathy medicine?(xiii) What are the plans of the Department of AYUSH and the State Government for the development of indigenous system of medicine?(xiv) Whether proper steps have been taken by the Department of AYUSH as well as the State Government to encourage people to avail alternate system of medicine which has no side effects when compared to Allopathy? The matter will be next heard on July 23. H.C.P.Nos. 773 of 2020 Kaliyaperumal v. Government of Tamil Nadu & Ors. Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Man United reveal new plan for Sanchez after Inter loan

first_imgManchester United have told Alexis Sanchez that he will be expected back at Carrington in the summer, according to reports. The 31-year-old is currently spending the season on loan at Inter, although his campaign has been severely disrupted after undergoing ankle surgery in October. Alexis Sanchez has struggled at Inter after undergoing ankle surgery. The Serie A club do not have an option to buy Sanchez once his loan spell ends. And according to ESPN, United have decided to throw Sanchez a lifeline by giving him a chance to impress during pre-season training. The report claims that United remain open to offers for the Chilean, but will not sell him for a cut-price fee. Sanchez will still have two years remaining on his £500,000-a-week deal this summer. It’s also claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told by United’s hierarchy to include Sanchez for his plans next season. Earlier this month, Antonio Conte lashed out at reporters who questioned his decision not to play Sanchez in Inter’s draw against Atalanta. ‘You mention Sanchez, well gentlemen, players must be fit to play. I am not crazy,’ said Conte. ‘So, either I am a moron, or I want to hurt myself. I believe one plus one equals two. If you make one plus one equal five. ‘If I put someone out of our line-up it is for a reason. It is not about performing a hara-kiri or because I am a mad man.

Duerig verbals to Syracuse with ambitions to contribute right away

first_imgAndrejas Duerig’s dream school was not Syracuse. He didn’t see himself playing for the Orange in “a million years.”But when his National Collegiate Scouting Association recruiting profile matched him up with a bunch of potential schools, Syracuse was the only one that came back as a 100-percent match. Soon after that, SU offered him a spot in the Class of 2015. “I was like, there’s got to be something that God’s telling us here,” Duerig said, “that this is the school I need to go to.” Duerig committed to Syracuse on June 17 while he was on campus during his official visit. A versatile offensive guard that is transferring to Mount Carmel (Ill.) High School for his senior season, Duerig can also play tight end, as well as other positions on the offensive line. But one of the primary things that drew him to the Orange, though, was the possibility of starting at center right away. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I like making a mark,” Duerig said. “Where I can make a mark most is where I play. And if I can come into a program and give my heart and do my best and start for four years…I think that’d be fantastic.” His versatility will likely land him more offers from big-time programs in the coming weeks and months, but Duerig insists that he remains steadfast in his decision to play for Syracuse. He’s changed his cellphone number, and he’s having his mom monitor his Twitter and Facebook accounts to shoo off other college coaches. “When he sees something and he wants it, he just does it,” said Shane Tucker, Duerig’s former coach. “That’s him. He doesn’t want to mess around.” Duerig knows that he can have a chance to have an immediate effect on the Syracuse offense in a multitude of ways. In middle school, he was forced to learn how to play many different positions, many of which he still plays in high school. Now he’s a 6-foot-4, 272-pound rising senior, but it was in those formative years that Duerig developed a feel for the game. Tucker said that from the moment Duerig started playing football he was a “mountain man”— and a strong lineman unlike some of the other, “softer” players on his seventh-grade team.Tucker, whose son also plays for Mount Carmel, now serves as a mentor figure to Duerig and said the lineman will leave a positive mark on the Syracuse program. But before he gets to SU, he still has one high school season to play. This summer, he’s been working out with MC assistant coach Joe Kubik as he prepares to play his first season with a top-flight high school football program. Immediately, Kubik said, he understood why Duerig has become such a highly recruited player. “He’s been a great worker,” Kubik said. “He’s been a great leader. He’s been a great team-first guy. We expect great things out of him.” Mount Carmel is Duerig’s focus right now, but it’s just a stop for him. Syracuse is the long-term future for Duerig, and one he admittedly didn’t believe in for quite a while. But once he visited Syracuse, and came to understand what he could potentially mean to the program, it was no longer an unknown decision. It was an obvious one. “When I did take that visit,” Duerig said. “…It just all built together to make the easy decision. It’s kind of funny how things work out.”  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on July 17, 2014 at 12:08 am Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3last_img read more
