Summer is here (finally). Time to join every other Oxford student in the University Parks. For those of you who enjoy spending your afternoon in close proximity to a hundred sweaty bodies, I highly recommend it. However, others of us seek more space, more solitude in our escapes. For such spatially conscious folk, I suggest taking a little trip to Port Meadow. This beautiful bunch of fields has much to recommend it. First of all it’s not too far away. In Oxford student terms it might be unreachable but, for those of you who can walk more than a few metres without having a coronary, it’s just past the Phoenix Picture House. Go to Peppers (and pick up a kebab to rival the offerings of that greasy van opposite St John’s) and turn left. There you’ll find a vast expanse of green, flowing rivers populated by geese and swans, and long paths that lead to the Trout, itself a haven too oft missed by many an insular Oxonian. The walk to the Trout is a lovely one. A few miles along the river, past the ruins of a twelfth century abbey, and over an old stone bridge. And at the end of that all the Pimms you can drink without passing out. A sweet way to spend a Saturday afternoon. But the best thing about Port Meadow is that, while in reality you are only a stone’s throw from the city centre you feel as though you’ve been transported to some distant location, a tranquil piece of the countryside. It’s expansive, beautiful and, best of all, empty. So make haste. Get there before word gets around and Port Meadow becomes more packed with the upper middle classes than the south of France.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004
With Yemen importing 90% of its food and fuel, it’s essential that Hodeidah and Saleef ports remain fully open to help millions of people who are at risk of starving to death. We recognise Saudi Arabia’s legitimate security concerns and will continue to provide support to prevent illegal arms smuggling into Yemen – this does not require stopping humanitarian and commercial supplies from reaching those in need. The UK Government strongly condemns the continued firing of ballistic missiles from Yemen towards Saudi Arabia. We continue to support Saudi Arabia to strengthen efforts to prevent the flow of illegal weapons by providing extra UK support to the UN’s Verification and Inspection Mechanism. We are also engaging with Saudi Arabia’s plans to develop an operational humanitarian plan for Yemen.Since access reopened, 19 ships have been permitted to enter Hodeidah and Saleef ports, unloading 260,000MT of food and over 95,000MT of fuel. It is vital that commercial and humanitarian supplies of food, fuel and medicine are able to reach vulnerable Yemeni people, particularly in the north where 70% of those in need live.The UK is the second-largest humanitarian donor to the UN’s Yemen Appeal and third-largest donor overall, and will continue to support millions of Yemenis affected by the conflict.Notes to Editors I heard about some of the heartbreaking tragedies suffered by Yemenis when I met with refugees and international aid workers last month. I am pleased restrictions on access have since been eased at the ports of Hodeidah and Saleef, allowing 19 ships to deliver food and critical fuel. This is already saving lives by ensuring hospitals can continue delivering essential medical care, water can be pumped into major cities, grain can continue to be milled into flour and food transported to those most in need. But the situation in Yemen remains dire and will deteriorate rapidly unless unhindered access is maintained, especially to the north of the country. All parties to the conflict must continue to allow unhindered commercial and humanitarian access throughout Yemen to avert the risk of mass starvation, International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt warned today.Yemen is the largest humanitarian catastrophe in the world and has left over three quarters of the Yemeni population in desperate need of assistance.International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt, who visited Saudi Arabia and Djibouti in December to call for access and meet aid workers, said: The UK’s £205 million of support this financial year (2017/18) is providing: enough food for 1.8 million people for at least a month; nutrition support for 1.7 million people; and clean water and sanitation for 1.2 million people. The latest package of UK support, announced by the International Development Secretary in December, will in addition provide enough food for 3.4 million people for at least a month and provide fuel to support the milling of enough wheat to feed a million people for over a year. On 20 December, the coalition announced it would fully re-open Hodeidah port to vital commercial imports, including fuel. This was announced shortly after the Secretary of State visited Saudi Arabia. The UK is providing £1.3m to the UN’s Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM) to facilitate commercial shipping into Yemen’s Red Sea ports and provide assurances against weapons smuggling, and we have seconded British experts into UNVIM in Djibouti to assist with the inspections process.
Swansea appealed against the decision with a written statement and video evidence and a Football Association appeals panel overturned the red card on Thursday afternoon. A club statement said: “Swansea City can confirm that the Football Association has rescinded the red card shown to defender Federico Fernandez against Liverpool in midweek.” Swansea manager Garry Monk had expressed his disappointment at the decision to send off Fernandez, the fourth round tie standing at 1-1 with extra-time beckoning before Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren made the most of the visitors being reduced to 10 men with a 95th-minute winner. “It clearly wasn’t a sending off,” said Monk, who will meet Mike Riley, the general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, on Friday to discuss decisions which he says have consistently gone against his side this season. “Hopefully the referee will see some sense and the authorities will rescind that red card, because it wasn’t a red card at all. “It’s an honest challenge. If anything, Coutinho’s feet were higher than ours and actually went in over the top of our player. “I don’t quite see how the referee saw that, but hopefully he sees sense and rescinds it.” Fernandez is now free to make sixth-place Swansea’s trip to Goodison Park on Saturday. Monk later expressed on Twitter his satisfaction at having Fernandez available for the weekend, and at the fact he will face no Football Association charge for his post-match outburst at Stoke on October 19. The 35-year-old was asked to explain himself after describing Potters winger Victor Moses as “a cheat” for falling inside the penalty box and calling referee Michael Oliver’s decision to award the spot-kick “disgusting”, but will face no punishment. He posted: “Positive news, no FA charge & Fernandez red card rescinded. Glad common sense prevailed. #swans” The Argentinian centre-back was shown a straight red card by referee Keith Stroud for a tackle on Philippe Coutinho during stoppage-time in the 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Anfield. The tackle was deemed as serious foul play and Fernandez faced a three-match ban, starting with Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Everton. Press Association Swansea defender Federico Fernandez has had his red card against Liverpool in midweek rescinded.
Kolkata: He is still bathing in the euphoria of leading Bangladesh to their first global cricket title. But 18-year old Akbar Ali knows all too well that a place in the senior team is still a bridge too far and he has to continue the good work to realise his ultimate dream.Akbar quite literally led from the front as Bangladesh stunned defending champions India to win their maiden U-19 World Cup on Sunday in a thrilling final at Potchefstroom. “It was a dream come true moment for all of us. We have worked really hard for two years. All our hard work came to life at that one moment. We were over the moon and even that is an understatement. I cannot describe the feeling when Rakibul (Hasan) hit the winning runs,” Akbar told IANS in an interview before the team left for Bangladesh.
