first_imgWednesday Dec 16, 2009 Leicester Tigers snowed under by a rampant Clermont Auvergne The snow of Stade Marcel Michelin did little to dampen the occasion as Pool Three of the Heineken Cup produced a high scoring match that had hosts Clermont running out victors 40-30 over the Leicester Tigers.Clermont dominated the match before Leicester saved face with a late flurry of tries from Toby Flood, Anthony Allen, and Jeremy Staunton.“Credit to Clermont for that first 50 or 60 minutes, they played fantastically well,” Flood said afterwards. “But for us it is a big look at ourselves. Clermont came out of the blocks and we turned over the ball and conceded points.”“We let it go during that first hour and we are really disappointed they got that far ahead of us,” he added.The two sides meet again on Saturday, this time at Welford Road, but with the control shown by the French side, theyd probably be favourites for the match.“It is a very important game next weekend. Our pride has been dented, and it is important we bounce back,” said Flood.Leicester were determined to take something away from the game as they searched frantically for two losing bonus points. They almost got them right at the death with one final counter-attack, in what was an exciting finish to the entertaining match.Clermont, who led 35-9 with little over 20 minutes left, kept them out though, denying the visitors the consolation points.“We kept battling and in the end we are disappointed not to come away with anything, Flood added.A great win for Clermont, who will take plenty of confidence from the way they scored points at will in the first half. Leicester, who conceded the most points they ever have in Europe, will need to win this weekend to stay afloat in Pool Three.

Located on the banks of the Assomption River, in the Lanaudière region north of Montréal, the property is at the heart of a spruce forest of exceptional density, defined by verticality and narrow tree trunks, which are quite common in the region.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingPerched on a rocky cap, a trail snakes around the cliff and leads to the river. While the waterway is not visible from most of the site, the sound of its impetuous current reveals its presence. One remarkable and exceptional factor is the group of mature birch trees that colonized the flank of the cliff, adding a luminous, almost unreal touch to the site.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSince the project has a very small footprint, it was interesting to play with the verticality of the setting. The project was built at the top of the cliff so as to benefit from its height, and play on the verticality of the spruce forest, like a hunter’s blind in the woods. It is located in the heart of the forest, near a group of birch trees that take centre stage. For this reason, the living room windows and doors were designed as tableaux, so the monumentality of the setting can be appreciated.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe project unfolds through the site and culminates at the river. The path meanders through various living spaces. Terraces were laid out all along the path so that each space can be appreciated differently, according to the time of day.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletVolume.The sombre and austere character of the setting, created by the dense forest, was enhanced by the tall, darkly coloured construction, so as to melt into the environment as much as possible. The project can be glimpsed among vertical tree trunks and through the sharp points of spruce branches.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe verticality of the volumes means that the site opens upwards, allowing light to enter the building. The second floor is treated not as a mezzanine, but as a kind of crack, so the light gets in.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSince the project has a very small footprint, the building is distributed across two wings. The first comprises the main residence, the second is the veranda – an essential space in this region. The veranda is separated from the house by a covered passageway which draws attention to the cliff and the river below.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletInterior.The entrance to the house, on the north façade of the main wing, has very few windows.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe verticality of the openings echoes the form of the house. The compact footprint required the interior volumes to be spacious and light-filled. From the entrance area, a corridor leads visitors to the living spaces located to the south. The staircase to the floor above accentuates the verticality of the whole. With its interminable chimney, the slow-combustion stove, located at the far end of the floor, maintains the phenomenon.Save this picture!Elevation 2The kitchen was placed on the south side, near to the veranda, where many a summer meal is enjoyed. The view of the landscape is more open on this side, and the versatility of the space allows a greater diversity of uses.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe staircase up to the bedrooms was installed in an opening through the second floor, opening the space across both storeys. A corridor runs the entire length to connect the bedrooms, but also to bring light to the ground floor.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe openings were conceived as tableaux, framing the landscape, seeking to melt into omnipresent nature, as much by the scents from the forest as the songs of birds, or the nearby river. Light, filtered through the trees, changes with the hours of the day and the seasons of the year, and offers a place that is constantly changing, in perfect harmony with the living being that is the surrounding forest.Project gallerySee allShow lessHow University Construction Projects Offer Opportunities to Reform Architecture Educ…Architecture NewsForm Follows Fiction: Ole Scheeren’s TED Talk on Why Architecture Should Tell a StoryVideos Sharecenter_img Year:  “COPY” La Cache / Nathalie Thibodeau Architecte CopyHouses•Sainte-Béatrix, Canada Year:  CopyAbout this officeNathalie Thibodeau ArchitecteOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSainte-BéatrixCanadaPublished on January 28, 2016Cite: “La Cache / Nathalie Thibodeau Architecte” 28 Jan 2016.

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns repeated attacks by the Chinese embassy against Swedish journalists and insists that diplomatic missions have no say in the editorial content of media in their host country. Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia Help by sharing this information March 18, 2019 Sweden: RSF urges Chinese ambassador to stop harassing media News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says “But why is he so harsh?” This is a question that Swedish journalists keep asking in reference to Chinese ambassador to Sweden, Gui Congyou, who has embarked on a “truth” crusade against the country’s media since taking office in August 2017. The ambassador, who developed his career between the Chinese Embassy in Russia and the Department of European-Central Asian Affairs of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, seems to have trouble understanding that in Sweden, a country ranked second in the RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, journalists are not subject to censorship.On the embassy’s website, the ambassador recently posted a long, unsigned attack against SVT Nyheter, a major Swedish news outlet. The diplomat castigates the site for giving a platform to David Liao, Representative to the Taipei Mission in Sweden, on February 27. Liao published an opinion piece calling support for Taiwanese democracy against Chinese threat. According to Gui Congyou, the article “challenges the one China principle” and  “amounts to serious political provocation.” Beijing is very aggressive in claiming sovereignty over the island of Taiwan, despite it having an independent government since 1949.“Diplomatic missions have no say in the editorial content of media in their host country,” says Erik Halkjaer, the president of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Sweden. Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF East Asia bureau, considers that these attacks “reveal the unrestrained attitude with which Beijing is now trying to impose its censorship outside its borders.”The attack on SVT Nyheter is indeed not an isolated incident. Since July of 2018, the Chinese Embassy in Stockholm has attacked multiple Swedish news sources, including Dagens Nyheter (DN),  Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (TT), 8 Sidor, Upsala Nya Tidning, Dagens Samhälle, Nya Wermlands-Tidningen, and Svenska Dagbladet (SvD).The ambassador was particularly harsh towards Swedish journalist Jojje Olsson, author of a book on the Swedish publisher Gui Minhai, who was kidnapped in Thailand in 2015 and is still detained in China with no scheduled sentencing. Last December, he also attacked Swedish journalist and commentator Kurdo Baksi, accusing him of “instigating hatred against China.”China is the world’s biggest jailers of journalists, with more than 60 currently detained. In the 2018 World Press Freedom Index published by RSF, the country rank stagnates at 176th out of 180.

first_img Help by sharing this information October 12, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Iligan City radio journalist shot in the stomach Reporters Without Borders today called on the government and provincial authorities to order an exhaustive investigation into an attempt to murder radio journalist Jose Cagalawan Pantoja on 8 October in Iligan City, in the southern province of Lanao del Norte, in which he sustained serious gunshot wounds.“It is vital that the police identify those responsible for this apparently targeted and premeditated attack on a radio presenter,” the press freedom organisation said. “The contract killers and those who put out the contract must not remain unpunished.”Aged 44, Pantoja works for Iligan City-based radio dxLs. Two men on a motor-cycle shot him several times in the stomach at short range near a Mindanao university building. He was rushed to Mindanao hospital in a critical condition.Known as a hard-hitting reporter, Pantoja is the main presenter of “Katawhan Alagaran” (Serve the People), a daily programme on local politics in which he investigates corruption and often criticises Lanao del Norte governor Vincente Belmonte. He has been the target of several defamation suits, some of which have been dismissed. He used to be the spokesman of former Lanao del Norte governor Imela Dimaporo, who was defeated by Belmonte in the most recent elections. He said he received death threats prior to the shooting.Journalism is a dangerous profession in the Philippines. At least six journalists were killed in connection with their work in 2006. Murders, physical attacks, arrests, unwarranted lawsuits and censorship are all commonplace.

About Author: Brian Honea in Daily Dose, Featured, News Home / Daily Dose / Rising Lease Expirations Do Not Deter SFR Vacancy Rate The vacancy rate remained low across the 24 single-family rental securitizations rated by Morningstar Credit Ratings in May despite rising for a second straight month, according to Morningstar’s June 2016 Performance Summary Covering All Morningstar-Related Securitizations.A fifth straight month of increases in lease expirations in May contributed to the uptick in the vacancy rate across the 24 transactions, according to Morningstar. During that period, lease expirations have increased from 4.1 percent up to 8.1 percent, which, despite being a large increase, is not unusual for the time of year, Morningstar reported.“Morningstar expects lease expirations to continue to rise as summer nears, as tenants prefer moving when children are out of school,” the report noted.Even with the increases, however, the overall vacancy rate has risen from 4.2 percent to 4.3 percent from March to April and 4.3 percent up to 4.4 percent from April to May, according to Morningstar.The delinquency rate across the 24 transactions increased to 0.5 percent in May after four consecutive months of declines. The delinquency rate increased in 20 out of the 24 transactions in May but still remained low at 0.5 percent; only two transactions (ARP 2014-SFR1 at 1.2 percent and SWAY 2014-1 at 1.1 percent) were above 1 percent for May, and both rates were a decline from April.Retention rates remained strong for both full-term leases and month-to-month leases in April, the most recent month for which data was available. Twenty-three out of the 24 transactions had a retention rate of 70 percent or higher for regular leases, and 17 out of 24 reported a retention rate of 80 percent or higher on month-to-month leases, according to Morningstar.“Because more leases are scheduled to expire as the summer months approach, turnover continues to increase and has now risen for four consecutive months,” Morninstar reported.Click here to view the entire Morningstar SFR securitization report.  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Morningstar Credit Ratings Single-Family Rental Securitizations Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

The Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat was hearing the Regular Bail Application of one Shoaib. The Case against Shoib As Prosecution’s case against Shoaib is that on 25th February 2020 protest of one community was going on against the CAA. Also, people of another community came there protesting in favour of CAA. Allegedly, they came in front of each other and started pelting stones on each other. During stone pelting, firing also took place and due to this stone pelting and firing several people and police personnel got injured. Further, during investigation, statements of witnesses were recorded and CCTV footage was analyzed and many accused were identified by the CCTV footage and were arrested. In the CCTV footage, Shoaib (the accused) was present in the street and holding one palta in his hands. He was shouting and pelting stones on the other group. Moreover, ASI Dharambir also identified him. Court’s Observations Regarding the role of the present accused Shoaib, the Court observed, “He is clearly visible in the footage with an aggressive posture and shouting and carrying Palta in his hands. The photographs of accused and of other accused persons are evident of the situation of their role in riots.” The Court further noted, “In the bail application itself, it is contended that palta is used by the applicant in preparing Biryani. The bail application of many co-accused persons, who are seen with an aggressive posture and rioting, have been dismissed.” Thus, the Court concluded that the accused was part of the unlawful assembly which in prosecution of common object had committed the offence of rioting and firing gunshot injuries on the public persons and police officials. Lastly, in view of the gravity of the offence and the material available against the accused Shoaib, the Court found that no case for bail was made out. Accordingly, the instant bail application of accused Shoaib under Section 439 Cr.P.C stood dismissed. In related news, the Karkardooma Court (Delhi) last week refused to grant Regular bail to Shahrukh Pathan, whose infamous picture, showing him pointing a gun at a policeman, during February 2020 Delhi Riots had gone viral on the Social Media/Internet. While denying him bail, the Additional Sessions Judge, Amitabh Rawat observed, “What is material is the gravity of the offence and the allegations against the accused which are quite grave. And added to it is the conduct of the accused showing that he does not satisfy the triple test for grant of bail.” Importantly, the Court had also said that “the accused is alleged to have participated in the riots and has been duly identified. His picture speaks volumes about the involvement and the conduct of the accused on the said day.” Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

They also sought a direction to the said Tribunal to hand over the management of concerned Church to the denomination constituting majority, or in the alternative, to partition all disputed Churches and their properties equitably”Entry 11A of the Concurrent List of the Seventh Schedule to the Constitution deals with, inter alia, “constitution and organization of all courts, except the Supreme Court and the High Courts”. Having due regard to the provisions of Articles 245 and 246 of the Constitution, no such mandamus can be issued by this Court. Nor can a direction be issued by this Court to the legislature of a State to enact a law.”, the bench comprising Justice DY Chandrachud and MR Shah observed. The court said that the petition filed is a complete abuse of the process.Yet another prayer in the petition was to declare that no judgment shall be allowed to operate against the belief of Petitioners and members of the religious denomination unless the same is not protected by Articles 25 and 26 of the Constitution of India.”The purpose of the petition, as is evidenced by the prayer (v) extracted above, is to obtain a direction that no previous judgment of this Court on the subject raised should operate. As the petitioners have themselves indicated in the course of the synopsis, the judgment of this Court in K S Varghese vs Saint Peter’s and Saint Paul’s Syrian Orthodox Church (2017) 15 SCC 333, is the reason for instituting the writ petition under Article 32 since the petitioners consider themselves to be aggrieved by the judgment. The remedy of a party which is aggrieved by a judgment and order of this Court cannot certainly lie by instituting a petition under Article 32 of the Constitution. Such a petition would not be maintainable.”, the court said while dismissing the writ petition.Earlier also, the Supreme Court had dismissed writ petitions which sought to reopen the dispute between Church factions.Case: John Paily vs. State of Kerala [WPC 428/2021] Coram: Justices DY Chandrachud and MR ShahCitation: LL 2021 SC 227Click here to Read/Download OrderNext Storylast_img read more

first_imgThe European Computer DrivingLicence is going down a storm. But what is its true value? Simon Kent reportsIn May 1998 a new ITqualification was launched in the UK. The European Computer Driving License(ECDL) had its genesis some three years earlier as a local qualification inSweden. Offering a simple mark of auser’s skill and knowledge at using IT, the qualification quickly spreadthroughout Northern Europe and is now awarded in the UK by the British ComputerSociety (BCS). According to Stephanie Malone at the BCS there are now around1,300 recognised test centres for the licence and some 100,000 candidatesregistered as working towards the qualification.But what is the licence reallyworth? Moreover, given the host of other IT-related qualifications – from NVQsto degrees to Microsoft qualifications – does it really have a legitimate placein the training roster? “It is the best thing available for a reasonably shorttest of basic computer usage,” says Simon Ellis, head of the London SkillsForecasting Unit. “To that extent I think it’s useful, but it’s probably notthe complete answer to current skill shortages.”The Forecasting Unit’s annualsurveys of 5,000 companies and 14,000 individuals have found IT skills to beamong the biggest problems for employers in the last few years. But while the ECDL certainlyaddresses user skills, it is not intended to address the more technical skillsin the software and programming areas which are also in demand from employers. “The IT industry is probablyone of the areas where take up will be lowest,” notes Karen Price, chiefexecutive of E-Skills National Training Organisation. “It’s more for otherindustries where employers might be unsure of exactly how to upskill theirworkers.”Major attractionsThe ECDL can boast two majorattractions. Firstly, it is a user’s qualification. In other words, anyone whouses a computer in any context is a potential candidate. Secondly, the qualification isextremely flexible in delivery and can be adapted to meet the demands ofindividual organisations in terms of employee activity, their prior knowledgeand the amount of time they can spare for training activities.The full ECDL qualificationrequires the completion of seven modules (see box). Clearly an individual mayknow more about certain areas than others and can therefore take the modules asand when they are ready, dedicating more training time to those areas wherethey are less knowledgeable. To extend flexibility anduptake, the BCS has recently introduced the idea of a “start certificate”whereby a candidate completing four of the seven modules can receive officialrecognition of their knowledge. In this way, even employees who do not needknowledge in every area of the ECDL will still be able to gain some official recognitionof their skills.Bradford and District Tecstarted using the ECDL following a study of its own IT skills requirement. With a policy of one computerper desk, it found that training staff towards the qualification meant itssmall IT department – three employees serving a workforce of around 90 – couldspend less time dealing with simple user-problems enabling them to gain morevalue from the organisation’s IT investment.Efficiency“People who have been usingtheir computer for three or four years have taken the course and found new andmore efficient ways of doing their work,” says Geoff Rose, the Tec’s ITmanager. “If a company doesn’t have itsown support staff and is reliant on an outside supplier, training staff throughthe ECDL could have a bigger impact – they would no longer have to pay for thatsupport.”The TEC has its own dedicatedIT trainer and has attained test centre status, enabling it to offer trainingto other organisations including the local council and the YMCA. This training isone activity it hopes to continue in some form following the closure of theTecs in March. “The qualification hascertainly worked for us,” says Jules O’dor, innovation manager. “We’ve seenbenefits in skill levels and in people’s confidence with IT. Employees havetaken on tasks they wouldn’t have dreamed of doing before – there’s even been acompetitive spirit amongst employees about who’s passed what and with whatscore.”The ECDL has won favour inother areas of commerce. Pfizer, the global pharmaceutical company, now hasupwards of 200 employees studying for the qualification delivered through thecompany’s Flexible Learning Centre in Kent. Meanwhile, 58 undergraduatesfrom the dental school at the University of Wales College of Medicine completedthe ECDL at the end of last year. Developing skillsClearly the qualificationoffers organisations an effective way of developing the basic IT user skillsits employees need, but will it become a qualification employers look for?Theo Lynn, managing director ofEducational Multimedia Corporation, a training supplier, believes in time thequalification will gain a greater foothold within the formal education system. “In five years’ time the ECDLwill be driven into schools, perhaps at the GCSE level,” he says. “At the moment the main need isto reskill the workforce and if corporations meet that challenge the standardrequired for IT skills will naturally rise.”However, if the qualificationis to achieve that status and to retain the popularity it has enjoyed over thepast two years, it must be seen to keep pace with the technology itself. According to Stephanie Malone,the syllabus has already undergone one upgrade since its inception and SimonEllis is not alone in highlighting the importance of keeping the standard ontrack with the rest of the IT world. “There is no doubt it will needto be updated as new technology comes along,” he says, “but broadly speaking itis the best practical test out there.”SevenstepsThe ECDL is principally basedaround Microsoft applications and consists of seven modules:Basic concepts of ITUsing the computer and managing filesWord processingSpreadsheetsDatabasePresentationInformation and communicationThe cost of training variesaccording to training provider and method of delivery – classroom, on-line, orCBT. An intensive course from zero knowledge can take up to 10 days. On averagethe full course costs £700. The BCS has set a guide-line charge of examinationsat £20 per module. Each candidate is also obliged to buy a logbook to recordtheir progress which currently has a fixed cost of £25. Related posts:No related photos.
