Marius Joubert soft spear tackle

first_imgSaturday Aug 11, 2007 Marius Joubert soft spear tackle After seeing Morne Steyn get red carded for a spear tackle a couple of weeks ago, Marius Joubert was only yellow carded for this tackle a week later.It was definitly not as dangerous as Steyns, but the question has to be asked – should it be a red card for any spear tackle, or is each tackle judged according to the severity of the impact?It may have been a spear tackle, but it wasn’t a “true” spear tackle, as Joel Stransky points out.Both fans and players alike need consistancy from the refs and the IRB rulings. My feeling is that each tackle should be judged accordingly. Therefore, a yellow was sufficent here. Your thoughts?

The Ascent at Roebling’s Bridge in Covington, Kentucky, is a 20-story residential tower that was completed in 2008. Reaching 300 feet at its pinnacle, the 310,000 sqf building includes 70 residential units, a swimming pool, garden facilities, large public event space, and a restaurant on the plaza level. The Ascent at Roebling’s Bridge was awarded a CNBC Americas Property Award for Best High-Rise Development in 2008. Save this picture!© CorporexProject description, images, and drawings after the break. Save this picture!© CorporexIts curving crescent form and sloping roofline are designed to maximize views, resulting in unobstructed visibility of the Cincinnati skyline from every unit. Sizes of the units range between 950 and 7,000 sqf, with most being around 2,000 sqf.Save this picture!© CorporexThe tower, located at 1 Roebling Way – a street renamed by city officials to better fit the building – echoes the colors of the Suspension Bridge. Built in earth tones, its windows reflect the sky and river images. Save this picture!© CorporexThe ascending height of the building mimics the suspension cables of the nearby Roebling’s Bridge, a central feature of Covington’s waterfront. It also links the low horizon of residential structures to the east with the more modern commercial buildings to the west. Save this picture!© CorporexThrough the vertical, non-repeating articulation of the facade, the building breaks from the conventional, horizontal orientation of typical high-rise buildings. Its multiple layers blur the distinction between interior and exterior, both visually and experientially. The resulting texture also provides shade to all units from the eastern sun. Save this picture!© CorporexIn the words of Daniel Libeskind, “History is not over. This building, while modern in design, is based on shapes that reflect the history, traditions and landscape of Greater Cincinnati, yet calls to mind the possibilities that lay ahead. The Ascent is less a structure than a living, breathing piece of art that stirs the soul and lifts the spirit. The Ascent will provide a lifestyle unlike any other in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana. It is a building that will inspire a region. It is a call to greatness.”Save this picture!© CorporexProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity Center Expansion Tower / Holzman Moss BottinoArticlesLawrence Israel Prize Awarded to David RockwellArticlesProject locationAddress:John A.

Former rebels falsely accuse journalist of involvement in murder plot

first_img Receive email alerts Another journalist murdered in Haiti Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice Follow the news on Haïti November 9, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Former rebels falsely accuse journalist of involvement in murder plot to go further Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haiti RSF_en HaïtiAmericas HaïtiAmericas News News October 11, 2019 Find out more November 14, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information News Organisation Reporters Without Borders voices alarm about false allegations by National Resistance Front leader Winter Etienne that journalist Nancy Roc of Radio Métropole was involved in a murder plot. These claims made on the air by an armed group pose a threat to Roc’s safety, the organisation says. News Claims by a former rebel group based in the northern city of Gonaïves linking radio journalist Nancy Roc to the murder of its leader last year were “irresponsible and gratuitous” and posed a threat to her safety, Reporters Without Borders said today.”It is very disturbing that the leader of an armed group, Winter Etienne, the spokesman of the National Resistance Front (FRN), has made baseless allegations associating a journalist’s name with a plot and a murder, the organisation said.”Reporters Without Borders welcomes the Haitian government’s rapid response in according Nancy Roc protection and asks that it be maintained for as long as necessary,” the statement added. Roc presents a programme on Radio Métropole called “Metropolis.”Comments by Etienne on Radio Vision 2000 and Caraïbes FM on 6 November suggested that Roc was involved in a plot leading to the murder in September 2003 of Amyot Métayer, the leader of the Cannibal Army (as the FRN was then called). He also suggested that Roc was linked to a recent supposed attempt to kill Amyot Métayer’s brother, Butter.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Roc said she went to Gonaïves to do a report on relief work aid there since the disastrous flooding caused by Tropical Storm Jeanne in September, and on the impact of local corruption on the distribution of humanitarian aid. She said she contacted Etienne, now in charge of the city’s port, and set up two appointments, but each time he failed to turn up.During an interview with President Boniface Alexandre on Radio Métropole on 30 October, Roc also reported that Etienne had said he never belonged to the Cannibal Army.After Etienne made his allegations against her, Roc received a call from the government offering support and she currently has police protection 24 hours a day. Despite Etienne’s allegations, her report on Gonaïves was broadcast as planned on 6 November. June 11, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

The position of the Chief Justice is that of a neutral arbiter, in the eyes of the common man he is the fountain of justice. The statements given by the Vice-Chancellor are against the principles of natural justice and may severely malign the reputation of the Judiciary as a whole and thus should be condemned”, added the letter.The FIR against Dr.Patil has reportedly been filed under sections Sections 294(obscene acts in public), 354A(sexual harassment of women) and 509(Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), alleging that he had exposed his nudity to the neighbour’s female family members.Refuting the allegations, Dr.Patil told Legally India,  “It is to tarnish the image of me and my University”.  He also claimed that he has filed a counter-case against the complainants.Faculty also raise complaintIn the backdrop of this development, some faculty members have stated that “In the past, Prof. Patil has made sexist remarks and used sexually harassing language with the members of the faculty, both female and male”.On July 24, the faculty members made a complaint before the Assam State Commission for Women, seeking necessary intervention. The issue started with a person making a post in the Facebook page of National Law University of Law and Judicial Academy Model United Nations alleging that Professor Patil had exposed his genitals to his mother and younger sister.The faculty members stated in their complaint before ASCW that they had immediately invited the attention of the University Registrar to the said Facebook post, and urged him to take steps for a proper investigation.”However, when we went to provide him with a draft as requested by him the next day, the Registrar imputed that members of the faculty, administration and students are conspiring against the Vice-Chancellor. We duly registered our protest against the unfounded allegations levelled against us by the Registrar to him immediately”, their complaint before ASCW said. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

D. Jagadish Chandira, adding that orders of the courts are routinely taken more lightly and the industry is thriving by engaging men and materials on a large scale. The Single Judge noted that heavy and high- cost equipments and vehicles like excavators, earthmovers, JCB, Poclain, Hitachi are used to excavate and heavy lorries viz., Taurus and Tata Benz are being used in the illegal mining business flouting all rules which remain in paper only. “Nowadays bullock carts are fabricated like that of tractor trailers to transport a huge quantity of sand to avoid seizure of high priced vehicles. This court is also able to see cases where more and more people are getting involved and sand is smuggled in pleasure cars and two wheelers which shows the   economy and the profits involved in sand smuggling”, reflected the bench, expressing that the offenders with scant regard to the law enforcers and orders of the court continue with the illegality at the cost of heavily degrading the ecology and environment since it is well settled in their minds that they will be able to get anticipatory/advance bail by complying with any stringent condition with ease and get out”. “It is common knowledge what is the amount paid as Royalty to the Government and what is the amount paid by end user of sand and minerals. It is an open secret that various mafias are controlling the illegal business at various locations. By this cartelisation, not only the State’s exchequer, the entire society is affected. In a way the illegal business is nothing but an organised crime against the society and each individual offender plays an active role in the organised crime”, remarked the bench. Stating that it is not that the individual offender is not aware about the rippling effect the illegal act causes to the environment and ecology, the bench said that the greed and selfish attitude of the offenders are increasing day by day and that the Courts cannot keep the eyes and ears closed. Noting that though anticipatory bails are granted imposing heavy monetary cost and serious conditions, the bench said the offenders are not bothered about paying since the amount of money spun in the illegal business takes care of them- “May be the amounts ordered to be paid are treated as business expenditure in a thriving industry”. The bench found that the sand and mineral offenders are unmindful of the fact that they are killing their mother nature and are continuing to indulge in illegal activities since there is hope for them, that they can get away by complying with the stringent conditions imposed by the courts while granting anticipatory bail/advance bail. “It is also surprising and astonishing to note that despite seizure of vehicles and coming to know the names of owners and persons involved in the illegal activities they are allowed to roam scott free and given sufficient time to approach this court to obtain orders of advance bail. There seems to be no will for the enforcement agencies to give effect to the various orders passed by this court in letter and spirit. In most of the cases there is no progress after an accused obtains bail and when compared to the cases registered the confiscation and conviction rate till date remains very poor”, the bench lamented, adding that it also has a reasonable suspicion that the cases which are registered are too for the purpose of statistics and are only a tip of the iceberg and much more are rolled under the carpet by the law enforcers for reasons best known to them. Saddened that the routine exercise of discretionary power has allowed the miscreants to indulge in illegal activities fully understanding the consequences and implications, the court was of the opinion that the offenders despite several orders passed by various benches of this court regarding illegal sand mining and knowing fully well about the evil consequences affecting the environment and society at large and the implications thereon are indulging in the offences of illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals. said the court. Voicing the fear that this order discouraging anticipatory bails could bring in a counter effect of non registration of cases regarding illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals, the Court, however, reflected that it is aware that it would not be difficult for the Director General of Police, Tamil Nadu to get statistics in which Districts and which Stations more cases were registered and it would not be difficult for him to do proper monitoring and take appropriate action to stop the illegality. Remarking that “Where there is a will there is a way”, the bench directed the state DGP to periodically review the progress of cases registered for offences regarding illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals in a time bound manner and see to that the final reports are filed within the prescribed time and accused are taken to trial. At the outset, the bench had commented that while sitting in the roster of Bail and Anticipatory Bail, it felt aghast with the sudden surge of petitions filed seeking bail and anticipatory bail for the offences relating to illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals. “Amidst the national lockdown declared and the whole Country being under lockdown mode, there seems to be no lockdown for sand offenders. Most of the industries and businesses in the country and especially the construction industry were under lockdown, whereas the illicit sand mining industry had worked overtime”, said the bench, stating that the surge of cases registered shows that the business of illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals had happened rampantly in all Districts unabated without any control, resulting in grave damage and degradation to the environment and also in depletion of natural resources. The court asked itself a “heart-searching question”: “In a society that has a well-established system of justice and law, should the courts restrict its role only to adjudication of issues and abdicate and shirk its responsibility and pass on the duty of controlling and preventing crime to the police and State authorities alone?” “In previous occasions this court in the petitions for anticipatory bails in cases relating to illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals, had granted anticipatory bail by imposing stringent monetary and serious conditions directing payment of hefty amounts to The Honourable Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, The District Mineral Trust Fund and to various other organisation involved in Social work with a fond hope that offences of illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals could be controlled by imposition of such conditions”, observed the bench. However, it despaired that despite the imposition of stringent conditions, the offences of such nature have not come down and on the contrary, there seems to be a rising trend, in these cases, increasing day by day. Each day at least 10 to 15 cases are being listed seeking the relief of anticipatory bail in offences of illegal quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals. “Despite the offences being non-bailable and this Court imposing stringent conditions, the police are not able to abate the menace of illicit quarrying/mining, theft and smuggling of sand and minerals”, the bench had said. The bench, in denying anticipatory bail on the string of petitions before it, observed that the order contemplated under Section 438 of the Code of Criminal Procedure is to be granted or refused by the High Court or Court of Sessions after exercising its judicial discretion wisely. “A wise exercise of judicial power inevitably takes care of the evil consequences which are likely to flow out of its intemperate use. Every kind of judicial discretion, whatever may be the nature of the matter regarding which it is required to be exercised, has to be used with due care and caution. Further anticipatory bails cannot be granted in cases of large magnitude affecting and impacting very large number of people”, reiterated the bench. Click here to download the judgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
