Bicycle bell crackdown has a ring of the nanny state

Bicycle bell crackdown has a ring of the nanny state

By Melissa Kite, Deputy Political Director
Last Updated: 12:35 AM Paris on September 10, 2006

From Labour plans to seize new laws requiring every bicycle to have a bell and each cyclist to use it to warn pedestrians to their presence.

Those convicted of driving without a bell face on-the-spot fines, with maximum penalties of up to £ 2500 or two years' imprisonment.

High-profile cyclists, as Conservative leader David Cameron and Tory MP Boris Johnson, should be vigilant in compliance with the new rule. President George W. Bush could be in difficulty if it had been in force last year, when he crashed his bike into a policeman during the G8 summit in Gleneagles. It is not known if his bell rang.

Some critics see the nanny state at work. Graeme Obree, the Scottish world record-holding cyclist, marks the passage a "pointless exercise in bureaucracy." He said: "If a cyclist is on the verge of striking a pedestrian, they are not going to hit a bell - they'll scream. Bobby What will enforce a law like this? Yobs will take the bell out of anyway. Only officials could come up with crazy ideas like that. "

The figures show that 12 pedestrians died after being hit by cyclists in the past five years. The number of cyclists killed on the roads has increased by 10 percent last year to 148 - the most since 1999. Current laws require bells to be fitted on new bicycles before being sold, but cyclists are not required to keep them. The ministers want to close the loophole when harmonised European Union cycle construction standards are applied in the fall.

Stephen Ladyman, Transport Minister, said in a written parliamentary answer: "[It is] a good time to review our current policies on cycle construction, including the question of bells." He pledged to consult the public first.

There were also calls for crackdown on cyclists who jump red lights or riding on sidewalks. The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said it plans to require cyclists to wear license plates.

Horse Racing

Horse Racing

(From Geoffrey H. Manning 's A colonial experience)
Each game, like all businesses, a black-market players. In the Exchange of default jostle men over pure spirit. In merchants warehouses occasional commercial sharping discredits the brutal honesty usually prevailed. In societies temperance are dissembling topers, and even in the Church graceless hypocrites. But the racecourse, although some of the most honourable men and generous souls in all communities figure prominently on it, it also draws too many of these despicable characters whose types are far worse than ever - the memorable Jubilee Player and nobles Ailesbury.
(Advertise, May 2, 1897, page 4.)

In its early days racing horses was seen as an innocent and entertainment virile, mainly patronised by "colleagues great honour and probity," but by the end of the 1860 reporters have been warned to put forward a suggestion that some " rascality "was perceptible in time - honour" sport of kings. "

Considered opinion of that day are the men who live by their minds to go, not for sport, but for the looting. Bookmakers, who have nothing to lose, but who still have a chance to win, take the company ... they are the worst type of players, and they bring the grass into disrepute. "

In other colonies "scandalous some tricks ... [a] have revealed the infinite disgust of all rights-minded patron of the race. Notorious horsy men on their luck, [had] levanted without taking the small difficult to settle with their creditors, and serious suspicions that exist a noble horse is safe to take a strong position in its commitments was poisoned by those whose interest it would have had him on the way. "

It was concluded by this observer that:

In our personal ring is not what it should be. The guardians of hell, gambling houses and saloons and dance would not be elected members of Tattersall in the country of origin. Here, no questions are asked. Everyone is respectable, if it is able to pay a book, and find a friend to propose. This is the quarter during which the reform is needed first.

There are people allowed in rooms whose presence is undesirable, not bode well for themselves or their employers. Government officials, bank clerks, merchants, clerks and employees in stores or warehouses should be more engaged in an evening that the ill-smoking tobacco, alcohol ..., speaking of horses, and now And then make a bet with men very dubious background and dubious reputation.

In the long term, they are required to be victims, and for everyone that lands a good thing, ninety-nine suffer considerably, both in character and l ', the acquisition of many habits that ultimately lead them to ruin.

It is a question too common awareness that young men who might have held positions in respectable life became pigeons to those hawks who too often hover around the betting ring and the racecourse which they seek snatch May .. .

With the revelations of the industry in recent years doping horses, corruption by punters, the gaoling of a prominent financier, and infamous conduct on the part of bookmakers, one can be excused for concluding that very little has changed since the sport was introduced to South Australia in 1838.

The first race Reunion
A little more than twelve months from the "Proclamation" ceremony in the Old Gum Tree, on the plains Holdfast Bay, the child colony of the first horse race meeting took place on a "pen Thebarton [which] is far from the animation and excitement from Epsom Downs ... "

The progenitor was hurtle James Fisher, the Resident Commissioner, a great jumper, which was supported by Colonel William Light, Surveyor General, John Brown, regional migration, Dr Cotter, Colonial Surgeon, John Morphett; Samuel Stephens , Colonial Manager South Australian Company and Dr. Wright, a physician. An improvised runway was cleared near the current police barracks and the sponsors announced a programme for a two-day meeting on 1 and 2 January 1838 and one observer said:

On the first of January 1838 left Adelaide for a while speculative orgy acres in town ... neglected for a day the evolution of a city and asked surcease on a gum-studded plain ... "Near the river.

Here ... have been engulfed in matted-coated "nags" in small farms and antennas as far away as Para, island horses shipped to pain and risks of Van Diemen's Land-robust and muscular hacks who came down from the road with Hawdon, Bonney and Eyre. There was no aristocracy of blood or air. They are innocent of pedigree and some were as many corners as a wagonette.

First, a lack of horses created difficulties for authors, but finally, ten horses were nominated to compete in four events including the first day of racing. There were two-three events horse for a bag of ten and twenty guineas, respectively, and the third with £ 10 of money as prizes. The other race has attracted six runners with each owner to contribute to £ 5 that the authors added £ 10.

About 800 people attended and, bearing in mind that the total population of Adelaide was only 2500, Mr. Fisher and friends, stand-holders and itinerant hawkers are more than satisfied with the assembly of customers turf:

Booths for refreshments and dance have been put in place, and every attention was paid to make the case worthy of those who love the sport, which was excellent.

Boxing and the fight


Boxing and the fight
Essay on boxing and fight

(From an unpublished manuscript by Geoffrey H. Manning, from tribal lands in Canton - A history of Thebarton)

In 1845 the public "houses of entertainment Port Road [were] literally crammed with knowledge of those" pink eye morning until Dewy "" "colonial announcing an interest in the fight against prices and which, according to a writer Chief newspaper, should be reported in the same manner in duels, robbery and murder, he was convinced that advertising, in a spirit of right is always the best corrective for such atrocities.

He suggested that the taste for the fight against the price has long been accused of the population of England and he feared that persist affection "among the degraded and polluted sections of the lower classes in the motherland" and hoped and prayed for that the industrious and prosperous workers of South Australia, and a brand, "set their faces stone against this horrible, degrade the defect.

In December 1845 a Thebarton chairmaker, Charley Barnett "resilient" against Johnny White "at the rear of Hindmarsh," the stakes are £ 20 a side - "Charley admirably resisted, but the force of arms and science were said we, too much for the chairmaker who was forced, reluctantly how never to give in. "

To escape the stigma in Adelaide boxing matches were held on the Yorke Peninsula and in 1863, the steamer young Australian has been chartered to convey competitors and supporters through Saint Vincent Gulf of Surveyor point where they landed to witness a battle described as "undecided", but on the return trip two drunk would be "Pugs" aims to settle on the deck. A return match for both professionals took place a few weeks later at the foot where they belaboured another until one of them "felt feint or an indisposition" to continue the contest.

Apparently unaware of the past history of Thebarton in the field of pugilism, an interesting three angles "competition" between the Company, a boxing promoter and owner of the site took place in 1894 as indicated in the following newspaper report:

At a meeting of the Society Thebarton ... a very large delegation of Southwark residents and members of the local Vigilance Committee attended request that the Council ... remove boxing competitions ... Mr. John Ryan said that the attempt has recently been taken to organize a series of boxing competitions in the room adjoining the hotel Southwark.

The hall had been hired by Mrs. Coveney for the purpose of holding a "variety of entertainment." Once the building was obtained posters were published a boxing contest between Billy Evans and Stan Osborne through the door silver and ten pounds a side.

Ms. Coveney then refused permission for the use of the hall but concerned citizens to fear that other owners of potential sites may be less scrupulous and, accordingly, the Company has asked to formulate a regulation prohibiting such events .

Councillors were unanimous in their support of the request and advise Boland said he would be sorry to see "whatever kind of get a foothold in Thebarton, as it is certain that the decline in the tone of the city of result" and presented a motion to ban such competitions in the city which was adopted without opposition.

Thebarton goes to the honour of being the place for the first catch in the south of Australia in January 1848 for an event took place on the field of racing Thebarton when a journalist proclaimed that:

We could not ... but admire the snatch of Marrs, a former veteran the same game in England and the founder of this imitation of English customs in South Australia ... There was no "kicking-kinky" or misuse through, and, considering this first test, it was very good.

Wimbledon, England - Sisters of life and doubles partners later in the afternoon, Venus and Serena Williams put most of the samples for almost two hours on Saturday at Wimbledon, smacking serves and ground strokes in each other's direction with a vengeance and a precision that has often been lacking in their previous family reunions.

Venus Williams rebounded from a slow start to win her second straight Wimbledon title and fifth over all, to defeat her sister Serena, 7-5, 6-4. More Photos>

It had been five years since they squared off in a Grand Slam singles final, and the long wait produced one of their most consistently intense and entertaining games despite the gusty conditions, which often made Centre Court feel more as the front tyres on a ship.

But there is still no doubt, Williams sister has the best record in Wimbledon.

Despite a dramatic start from Serena and Venus withstood the pressure and gradually introduced her long-limbed presence on her favorite tennis court. Her 7-5, 6-4 victory gave her a fifth Wimbledon singles title, leaving Serena with two.

"I can not believe it is five, but when you are in the final against Serena Williams, five seems so far away from the first point," Venus said in her postmatch remarks to the crowd. "She played so awesome. It was really a task to beat her."

Although Serena hugged her older sister on the net and was responsive during the ceremony, this failure was clearly a major blow. Serena has worked itself into fine form this season, but she has not won a Grand Slam singles title since her surprise run at the 2007 Australian Open.

"I do not think I am pleased with the way I played today," Serena said. "For me, there is nothing to be convinced."

Serena was feeling cheerier by the end of the night, after she and Venus won their third women's doubles title here by beating Lisa Raymond of the United States and Samantha Stosur of Australia, 6-2, 6-2.

This Wimbledon was a Williams revival yes, but it is true that most crucial was the singles. "I had a feeling that they were finally come to play a very good final," the nine-time Wimbledon singles champion Martina Navratilova said. "Today was fantastic tennis."

Serena beat Venus in their previous Wimbledon finals in 2002 and 2003. But the record books now make it clear that the All England Club is more Venus's stamping ground than her. It was Venus's second straight title and her third in four years, but it was number five that popped into her head after she had secured the fight on a backhand errors by Serena.

"I think certainly win this tournament so many times definitely puts you in the stratosphere, to be honest, precisely because of what this tournament means," Venus said. "I think I had had this achievement in any other tournament, it would have been awesome, but not nearly the same meaning as in Wimbledon."

Venus, which was the seventh seed this year, is certainly a different player here. Although she had not reached the final of any tournament this season, she swept through the Wimbledon draw without dropping a set.

"She loves it here," said Venus's framework partner, David Witt. "She comes here, and it just seems like she just stay here and embers. She loves the grass, and of course, confidence is everything in this game."

On grass, Venus's huge serve and flat terrain stroke is pervasive. On grass, she is more inclined to put her volleys to use. At 6 feet 1 inch, she covers a large part of air and space on the web.

This ability, with her clutch serving under pressure, was one of the keys to this victory. Venus came to net 18 times and lost only 3 points, as she did.

With the wind playing nasty tricks, Venus repeatedly grabbed her department tosses out of the air instead of pressing them and often pushed far beyond the 25-second period before serving. In a release, she was told by the President umpire Carlos Ramos, that she needed to accelerate.

But Venus was all too aware that her younger sister was returning aggressively and effectively. Venus lost her serve once in each set, but she could have been spread over three or four more times. Serena failed to convert on 11 of her 13 break points as Venus often jammed her by hitting serves in her body. In the first game of the second set, Venus held after hitting the fastest serve ever recorded by a woman at Wimbledon, 129 miles per hour.

"I think that was her tactic was to serve each ball to the body, I am glad she did it because next time I know what to expect," Serena said.

"I knew what she did. It was very readable."

NAPLES - One minute, Mary Carillo is sitting inside his conversation modern, spacious living room on another postcard morning by the gulf. The next, she has transformed her leather sofa in what appears to be the couch of a late-night talk show. She is the guest on a roll, and everybody is the studio audience, which is yet to come for pleasure.

You want stories? Has the stories. You want a thumbnail or opinion? Please. It offers words of humour and capital letter gusto: arm gestures to emphasize points, big laugh punctuating tales of a life in tennis and television, voice move at any time in a classic "Whaddya KIDDIN 'Me?" Catskill shtick, then back to the participation of Charlevoix tone Sports TV viewers have come to know over a quarter century.

His optimistic whirlwind presence is a mirror of his work. Today, a native of New York is a guide to no fewer than four networks - CBS, where she will serve as an analyst at the U.S. Open for the 20th year from Monday, HBO, where she made documentaries and serves as a correspondent / writer on the monthly magazine Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, NBC, which uses on his tennis and has sent its report on the last five Olympics, after its long Winter Games right on CBS and ESPN, for which she covers a myriad of tennis events.

In the meantime, she held a mother who holds with her two teenagers aged 19, Anthony, a sophomore at the University of Central Florida, and Rachel, 14, a high school freshman in Naples. She rarely slows down, waking up at dawn - and usually asleep before 10 am to recharge for the next day.

"Anthony and Rach always joke with me - I can not make double digits!" she says, brown eyes lighting with a smile on his tan, telegenic face. "If I was not in bed at 10 is like," Mom's rest. "Anthony - he sleeps until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I've never done that. There is a lot there, like, 'What are you doin'? You are Burnin 'Daylight! "

Ask anyone about it. They are all ok.

There is something about Mary.

* * *

She was the outgoing kid from Queens who grew up volleying with a neighborhood boy named John McEnroe, years later with his team to win the mixed doubles title at the 1977 Open de France.

It was the player whose pro career was reduced to three years of knee injuries and the woman who made a mark on network television Thursday calling on men.

Now, at 49, she is an award-winning journalist. His talent for storytelling landed her a part of a George Foster Peabody Award for HBO's documentary, Dare to Compete: The Struggle of Women in Sports in 2000. She earned a Sports Emmy last year on Real Sports for a segment about a father who tows, pedals and push his son profoundly disabled in grueling triathlons to enable him to know the thrill of competition. And it was the investigator and adviser on the history of the famous 2006 HBO documentary, Billie Jean King: Portrait of a pioneer.

"At this stage of his career, it is probably the main disseminator of women in sport," said Ross Greenburg, president of HBO Sports. Greenburg Carillo committed in 1996 at Wimbledon to play by-play - for women and men -- alongside tennis icons Martina Navratilova and King. He saw something special in his style to the microphone and host an hour late at night reminder spectacle. Who opened the door to Real Sports in 1997 .

"Obviously, I saw real potential as a tennis analyst, but more than that, I saw her blossoming into a high-powered sports broadcaster," he said. "I look like a hardcore journalist . It's almost as if it was never a tennis player or pro athlete. "

Carillo is immersed in stories, scatter-gunning ideas and views in planning meetings, poring through endless reference documents and interviewing with insight and compassion. Among women in sport, it began as a counselor, but Greenburg so impressed with his drive that eventually serve as one of the investigators and division with scriptwriting, Frank Deford.

To Greenburg, Carillo's natural communicative skills truly set her apart. "Marie the gift of gab is legendary," he says. "She is a person you want dinner, not just watch on television. I'm just happy to call a friend. Whenever you pick up the phone It will make your day. "

Best-selling author John Feinstein has known Carillo for years and his profile in his 1991 book on the pro tennis, Hard courts. He wrote a column suggesting that the best way to solve the problems of the game was to put everyone in the same room and blow it, but it would save five people.

"Marie was one of them," he said. "She is really smart. It is really funny. It makes people feel as if they are important, even if they are not. It is a wonderful friend. And what you see with Mary is real. When I walk around with it in USA Open, it is a pain in the neck. Because each person knows it and wants to stop it and wants to talk to him. And Mary not only stops and chats, but it will see a woman and there will be this accolade, and it will go, "And how are Jeannie and Johnny and Joey?"

"Then I'll go, 'Who was it?" And she will say: "I do not know, a woman I just see here every year." Yet she knows their children's names. This is ridiculous. "

Feinstein Carillo wrote in his brand new, youth-oriented sports vanishing mystery called law, set at the U.S. Open. The fictional protagonist, a 13-year-old boy, the language is tied when he met her.

"Mary is one of the few people I've never met a sport that has really not enemies," Feinstein said. "I mean, May it be a few people in the television business who are jealous of it because it is so good. But if you know Mary and do not like it, then there's something seriously wrong with you. I am not gush about people. But Mary, I jet. "

Navratilova, who co-wrote his 1983 book Tennis My Way with Carillo, and raves. "With Mary, you just listen, because there are still gems emerging from his mouth," she said. "She is insightful and quick and looks at things a little differently point of view. "

His style was forged in an Italian-Irish household in Douglaston, NY That's where Tony Carillo, who worked as artistic director for Young & Rubicam advertising agency, homemaker and Terry gave their three children - Charles , A newspaper man turned novelist, Mary and Gina, a former actor - a true appreciation of lively debate dinner. So far, the family encounters are noisy, fun.

"We all feel that we have something to say, we just feel that we have a lot to give," Carillo said, smiling. "I mean, if you get a seat at the table for meals Carillo, you a good place. "She works with the thought now, injecting a little Regis Philbin-like cadence to focus:" We're just SPITBALLING ideas back and forth. We Telling stories and flapping of arms and the entire world to seize the MIKE. Believe me, there is a lot of energy in this room. "

In fact, from the outset, energy is one thing Carillo has had in abundance.

His family the old carriage house was a dream for an active girl - just behind the inviting waters of Little Neck Bay and just down the street like a small family club with five tennis courts and swimming pool.

"She would be in his small boat, frighten his mother to death," recalls Terry Carillo. "She was just like his father - always in total. Everything that was there, we'll give it a shot."

But water was her passion, not tennis. She would fish nearby and, at 6, won 10 and competition, catching the biggest flounder. "And by the way, there were a lot of cheating going with children make sand flounders' gullets to make them heavier!" She says. "I'm like," Hey, wait a minute. "But I won cleanly. And I could choose a tackle box or an Alex Olmedo wooden racket, probably cost two silvers. "

She went to the racket. And it has used for crab.

Soon, she turned her attention to swimming. She loved the sport and became a standout by age 10. "She was extraordinary," said his mother, "but she got an ear infection and could not go in the pool for the rest of the summer. It is all disappointed, but I've said, "It's okay, Mare, I would you sign for tennis. I called my husband and said: "I signed you and Mary up for tennis' and he says," I'm from Brooklyn, we did not play tennis. "As I said, "Well, she needs to hit someone." And that began a love affair with the game. "

Shortly afterwards, Carillo hitting balls with a talented young player of the neighborhood who enjoyed tennis as much as she did, 8 years, John McEnroe. The fellow lefties quickly became friends and could easily play 14 games per day. Terry Carillo recalls: "It was John's mother, Kay McEnroe, who told me one day," You know, it's good. Send to its course. ""

So Carillo began taking serious lessons excellent results. McEnroe soon adopted in its ability to reach its clever, but continued to encourage. A junior, he got his entering junior tournaments and eventually she excelled at the national level. She spent countless hours at Port Washington Tennis Academy, where a large end Australian Harry Hopman ran the program and helped to refine his game

By his final year at St. Mary's Girls High School in Manhasset, Carillo's tennis prowess is well known. She ranked No. 1 in the East and in the top 10 nationally. She has good friends with a maximum and-coming tennis ace Vitas Gerulaitis, who lived nearby, and his sister Ruta, another potential pro. Ruta Carillo should select from a red Porsche at school - often well before the bell - and take its practice. The school usually reduce his sisters some slack.

Once the competition in the Caribbean Junior Championships, Carillo has missed a few days of school before Thanksgiving. Her mother dutifully helped, calling to say her daughter had the flu. The only problem: Carillo won and a story was carried in the Long Island Press.

"I returned to school Monday morning very tanned," said Carillo. "And I will never forget - they were doing announcements and Sister Maria Del Ray has arrived. She says: "And finally, we would like to congratulate Mary Carillo, who over the weekend won the Caribbean Junior Championship - despite the fact that she had a terrible case of the flu." "

She would soon reach a crossroads, and the path it has chosen to open the doors to the life she knows today.

At the end of high school, Carillo had many offers of college scholarships stemming from his tennis - a path her parents fully expected. But she was also intrigued by the idea of turning pro. She asked for advice Hopman, and he said he was moving to Florida to start a tennis school. In addition, he invited him to come as an instructor.

Carillo loved the idea. She figured she would have no chance at Pro Tour if it blew up on its knees painful more than four years of college Hardcourts. Thus, she informed her parents that she was heading south.

"My mother was like, 'What are you talking about? It is irresponsible." She turns to my father and goes, "Tell him." And he said: "Mary, I think it is great!" "

Carillo earned $ 50 a week at the Hopman first place on Treasure Island. But after several months of hitting with benefits, she began to wonder whether the time had come to look for herself. The decision was taken to an invitation to the Bahamas.

She had been winning all week and, according to the label of the winner, buying rounds of drinks for other players. "I buy all these fruity drinks with little umbrellas and I suffered a bill of $ 200 by the end of the week," she said. "I did not really l 'I have on at the time, since I am still Chump Change Mr. Hopman. So I went to the tournament director and asked,' What is the semifinalist win here? " "

He said $ 250.

"I look at him and said:" I'm turning professional, "she says.

Years later, his mother, who had no idea of history, read an account in Feinstein's Hard courts. "She said:" Mary! I can not believe it is in print! ""

Carillo battled increasingly bad knees in a pro career that lasted from 1977-80. It has been a top-30 player, but the real highlight was to join with his old buddy, McEnroe, Open France'77. McEnroe, 18, came to Paris as the best junior of the USA. In the days of World Team Tennis, many players were not there, there was room in the mixed doubles.

"John is looking at the list of persons who had signed and is like, 'Oh, geez, I mean we have to win this thing," she said. "I am a rookie pro and he has a high school and amateur, we win. "

Carillo played his last tennis at Wimbledon en'80. She had several knee surgeries and finally gave. She then returned home on crutches to find a new direction. "I said, 'Mare, what are you going to do? "" Says his mother, "she said," I'm going to get a truck, and later on I am going to say: "Mary Carillo, no job too small." This is it. "

She had been writing for magazines tennis and thought about getting into film work. But while attending a match at Madison Square Garden, the venue of the television network was scrambling to fill air time before the match. Carillo was sent to the stand and did a good job, the producer, she insisted on staying over the air game.

She signed with USA Network in 1980 to make women's matches. The following year, the U.S. Open, she was suspended in the cabin of Al Trautwig called men of the match with Yannick Noah. She began to pass notes to Trautwig with the observations.

"It would read as follows in the footsteps and use them," she said. "Now, I'm Al worsened. So after the fourth note, I stopped. And at the end of the match, it took me by the arm and took me down for the American producer, Gordon Beck, and said: "It was pass me notes during that Noah match and I refused to use them because they must be ahead of its mouth. "And Gordon said:" Okay "and the next night, I call men's tennis. That's how my career began. Suddenly, I could pay my mortgage. "

It certainly can pay now. In addition to its transport-style home in Naples, it has its place these days in Greenwich Village. Life is beautiful. His marriage of 15 years for Bill tennis Bowden - they met in Port Washington - ended eight years ago, but he lives nearby and they remain on good terms.

"It is a great instructor and a very good guy," she said.

His house is filled with family photos and memorabilia and two large custom shelves. They take all Seinfeld tapes back episodes of Real Sports to hundreds of pounds.

"I have a great mixture of things in my life," she said. "I'll be on the road and working to be a mother. You get the bends. But I love what I do. "

And always a pleasure.
