Rugby, from the bubble to the scrum | sports

The players from Wales and France collide in a scrum during the match played last Saturday at the Stade de France.BENOIT TESSIER / ReutersThe way in which European rugby recovered its great showcase, the Six Nations this past Saturday, illustrates its unequal fight against the pandemic. The Irish government made an exception so that professional sport could be practiced in its confined capital, Dublin. Teams such as Ireland and Italy represent the elite of a sport marked in its genome by the coronavirus: no discipline like this goes from isolation to breathing down the neck of the rival in the famous melés. But while the most traditional tournament has returned after a 32-week break, modest rugby is experiencing a survival exercise.The global governance of rugby suggested regulatory ...

Bolsonaro Branded a ‘Negligent Murderer’ Over Brazil’s Vaccine Planning | Brazil

Jair Bolsonaro is facing a furious backlash over what critics call his "murderous negligence" failure to prepare a coherent coronavirus vaccination program as the death toll in Brazil rises again.More than 181,000 Brazilians have died from the illness the president calls "a little flu," and Latin America's largest economy is hurtling into a painful second wave.But Bolsonaro's far-right administration has been slow to explain plans to vaccinate Brazil's 212 million citizens, betting almost all of its chips on the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine.Despite having the sixth largest population in the world, Brazil has yet to sign a contract with Pfizer and it has avoided the experimental Chinese CoronaVac vaccine for what many suspect are political motives. The CoronaVac has been championed by t...

Champions Cup winners Exeter kick off defense with record win over Glasgow | Sport

It has been the shortest honeymoon period in club rugby history, but Exeter just picks up where it left off in October. Last season's winning doubles have already won their first three Premiership games and marked the first game of their Champions Cup defense with their highest margin of victory in Europe. If the Chiefs didn't always reach stratospheric heights on a rainy and stormy afternoon, they had too much horsepower for Glasgow, who could at least say they were victims of friendly fire. Jonny Gray and Stuart Hogg used to be key players on their squad, but these days it is the English champions who are reinforced by their presence. The two Scotland internationals made the roster, but perhaps the most prominent people involved were in the stands. While the terrain was sparsely ...

What once seemed unthinkable has become, in just a few years, irrefutable. The evidence accumulated by academics, journalists and activists of grotesque human rights abuses in Xinjiang has begun to reach the general public. On Thursday, France and Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann cut his business ties with Chinese tech giant Huawei, saying there were "strong suspicions" that he has contributed to the crackdown on Uighurs. His statement continued a report that Huawei tested a facial recognition system developed by the artificial intelligence firm Megvii that could be used to identify Uighurs and trigger an alert of their presence. (Huawei has said that its technologies are not designed to identify ethnic groups.)In parallel, a rare leak from a list of prisoners in a camp has shown...
