Lions score fastest ever try from kickoff in South African rugby history

first_imgMonday Aug 15, 2016 Lions score fastest ever try from kickoff in South African rugby history Round two of South Africa’s Currie Cup took place this wekeend with the Lions recording a convincing victory over the Pumas in Johannesburg in their opening match of the campaign. Things started even better than they could have hoped, with a try just seconds after kickoff.Lourens Erasmus scored the fastest ever Currie Cup try from the kickoff, and one of the fastest ever witnessed when he gathered the ball from the kickoff and galloped in virtually untouched.The mobile second rower dotted down in just 8.5 seconds, which actually could have been even faster had he grounded it as soon as he crossed the line.It is a new Currie Cup record, with only a few tries in world rugby ever scored faster than this effort. The previous Currie Cup record was nine seconds, scored by Bertie Visser in 2012.The Lions went on to scored ten tries in total for their 68-26 win.Over the years we’ve featured a number of tries scored in rapid speed from the kickoff, with Dafydd Howells of Wales U20 the quickest ever from kickoff, scoring in just 7 seconds at the 2014 Junior World Cup.In the Premiership in England Lee Blackett still holds the record there after he scored in 8.28 seconds in 2008, while in Test Rugby John Leslie of Scotland scored in 10 seconds in 1999.View the try below and more unbelievable tries from the kickoff in the Related Postscredit: supersportADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

We try to understand this work as a succession of defined areas that are put in relation to others in order for them to function as a whole. We attempt to develop this same approach starting from the imprint. Volumetric clarity consists of determining each area, giving them a formal identity and putting them in relation to other composite areas with the same logic. In this way, a large volume appears at three meters hight locked by a vacuum and as an immediate result, the formal management of the ground floor is injected in its functions. It is interesting to note that not only do these have their own condition and use but the fact of putting them in relation results in a series of spaces and interstices that link them, relate them, give them particular qualities and end up solving new areas that coincidentally turn out to be the most important in the program.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteWhen we talk about intermediate spaces or interstices we talk about access, horizontal and vertical circulation, the public areas of the house (kitchen, living room, dining room) and the expansion gallery. Not to mention the non-physically constituted element that is vital for all these spaces and volumes to be put in relation; the backyard. This is a space that does not demand a physical action to constitute itself but articulates the horizontal and vertical uses of the entire work. This is how we can describe the compositional logics and conclude that the physical and formal execution of the spaces are not directly proportional to their importance. Those with the least matter are more important.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteUnderstanding this, what remains is only to highlight the importance of finding a route that links all these spaces fuelled by the qualities that each of them delivers. This makes it possible to appreciate how each space is affected differently under the action of light. As you walk through the house you can discover spaces, find visuals and projections of light and shadow and the life that proposes the functions of the house.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow less Photographs:  Gonzalo Viramonte Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBarrionuevo Villanueva ArquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTigreArgentinaPublished on December 20, 2019Cite: “Castaños House / Barrionuevo Villanueva Arquitectos” [Casa Castaños / Barrionuevo Villanueva Arquitectos] 20 Dec 2019.

Quarter of charity annual reports & accounts fall short of regulator benchmark

first_img A quarter of charity trustees’ annual reports and accounts fail to meet the Charity Commission’s basic benchmark, the regulator has revealed, following its latest monitoring reviews.The Commission studied a random sample of 106 charity trustees’ annual reports and accounts filed with it to assess how charities are meeting the public benefit reporting standards, and whether the accounts meet readers’ needs. It also inspected a separate sample of small charities.Despite a modest improvement in the quality of public reporting, it found that for the sample of charities with incomes over £25,000, 74% of the trustees’ annual reports and accounts reviewed were of acceptable quality, meeting its basic benchmark standard. The most common reason for inadequate reporting was that the trustees’ annual report did not explain the charitable activities the charity had carried out to help its beneficiaries.Reasons for inadequate reporting:The annual report was inadequate, mainly because it provided little or no information on the charitable activities carried out (11% of charities)One of the required documents was missing (5% of charities)The independent scrutiny report was inadequate, mainly because the wording of the report demonstrated that the person carrying out the scrutiny was not familiar with the independent examination requirements (5% of charities)The accounts were inadequate, mainly because they were incomplete or did not balance (5% of charities)For the small charities, the Commission found that 64% met the regulator’s basic benchmark. The main reason for inadequate reporting here was that the charity failed to provide one or both of the trustees’ annual report and the accounts.The Commission has provided regulatory guidance to 89 charities included in the reviews  to help improve the quality of future trustees’ annual reports and accounts.Nigel Davies, Head of Accountancy Services at the Charity Commission for England and Wales said:“Our research into trust and confidence in charities shows that the public no longer give charities the benefit of the doubt; they want evidence that charities make a difference when using their money. Public reporting is an opportunity for charities to tell their story and explain to the public what they do and how they use charitable funds.“Too many charities are still not meeting very basic standards when it comes to making key information available to the public. I am encouraged to see that an increasing number of trustees recognise the value of public benefit reporting, but there is clearly more work to be done across the sector.” Advertisement Quarter of charity annual reports & accounts fall short of regulator benchmark  122 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Tagged with: annual report Charity Commission trustees The full reports are available on GOV.UK.  121 total views,  1 views todaycenter_img Melanie May | 6 September 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Cops kill man in wheelchair, no charges

first_imgJeremy McDole, killed by cops in Wilmington, Del.Delaware Attorney General Matt Denn has refused to charge four Wilmington police officers in the shooting death of Jeremy “Bam” McDole, a 28-year-old African American. Dole was killed last September while sitting in his wheelchair.Black community leaders and residents were outraged by this result of an eight-month investigation by the Delaware Department of Justice. The department report cited Senior Cpl. Joseph Dellose for “extraordinarily poor police work” during the incident. Prosecutors initially considered filing a felony assault charge against Dellose. ( report found Dellose fired at McDole with a shotgun about two seconds after ordering him to put his hands up and said Dellose “should not be employed by the city police in any role where he would carry a firearm in public.”  It noted that the city’s “use of force policy” needed updating, and that officers get little training for response to similar situations among people who are psychologically, mentally, emotionally or physically disabled.The report released a 911 transcript in which a resident reported a man in a wheelchair had shot himself. When the dispatcher says, “They’re going to take him out,” the caller is heard responding, “Don’t kill him!” In a later interview with investigators, the caller said she never saw a gun.  No gun was ever found! Fighting back for Black and disabled peopleThe Rev. Donald Morton, executive director of the Complexities of Color Coalition, said: “Now that … we have come to this conclusion, I don’t know that I can tell our communities to remain calm. There is only so much a community of people can take.”Mahkeib Booker, who launched the Delaware chapter of Black Lives Matter, said the lack of charges tells the African-American community that their lives don’t matter.McDole’s family commented: “Our family disagrees with the conclusions of the report … which seems to reflect the historic fact that, we believe, no police officer in Delaware has ever been charged with a crime for the fatal use of force on a civilian. Blacks suffer three times the death rate of whites at the hands of police nationwide. But this is not reflected in the report.“Jeremy was paralyzed and he could not run or hide. … The tactical response reflected deliberate indifference to the life of Jeremy.” In their statement the family said they will continue to pursue a federal wrongful death suit.On Dec. 3, 2015, to mark the International Day for Persons with Disabilities, the People’s Power Assemblies (PPA) organized a protest in New York’s Penn Station to say “Disabled Black lives matter!” and to highlight the terminal’s infamous lack of access for disabled commuters, especially wheelchair users. Dedicated to the memory of McDole, the protest rocked Penn Station with chants of “Jeremy McDole! Say his name!” and “Disabled people need decent jobs, quality health care, not police terror!”The PPA is an organization in support of the Black Lives Matter movement to combat the rising epidemic of police murders, particularly of youth of color.On July 10, the PPA will again protest police murders of disabled people of color at the second annual New York City Disability Pride Parade, marking the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The parade, gathering in Union Square Park at 11 a.m., will march and roll up Broadway to Madison Square Park for a disability rights festival from noon until 4 p.m.The Disability Pride Parade was inspired by the civil rights movements of people with disabilities, people of color and women — as well as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer people who just held the largest LGBTQ parade in New York City’s history, which this reporter was proud to march in.Yudelovich is a World World Party activist with emotional and one-sided hearing loss disabilities.

WhatsApp Shannon Airport “has been abandoned” Facebook Emailcenter_img Twitter Linkedin Urgent action needed to ensure Regional Air Connectivity RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR As IAG was reported to be preparing a third and final bid for Aer Lingus , Limerick TD, Kieran O’Donnell (FG), has expressed his concern that Shannon’s Heathrow routes be preserved, and has confirmed that he will be raising the issue in the Dail this week.“This is a matter of absolute importance to me”, said Deputy O’Donnell.  “This is critical for Shannon, Limerick and the entire region in terms of gateway connectivity and jobs.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The government must ensure that the State’s 25.1 per cent strategic shareholding in Aer Lingus is used to preserve the most strategic of all air connections, the Heathrow slots.“All the great work that has been done in strengthening Shannon airport would be undermined were the Heathrow slots to come under any threat in an impending deal for Aer Lingus,” he said.“Shannon’s independence has been successful, with passenger numbers through the airport increasing very strongly since the government made it independent.  In 2007, the Shannon slots were redeployed by Aer Lingus for the Belfast routes, and heralded a period of decline in Shannon that has only been halted recently.  This shows the crucial importance of these slots for Shannon airport.“I hold my views on this issue very strongly, and I am raising this in the Dail chamber this week.“We have worked very hard here in Limerick to bring in investment and create jobs.  Air connectivity is one of the key elements in this.  Heathrow is the most important hub in the world, and the government’s strategic shareholding must be used to ensure that Aer Lingus’s slots are used for the strategic benefit of Irish regions.  This underpins Shannon’s broader role as an economic generator in the Mid-West region, and means that Shannon is the only airport on the Western Seaboard with a direct Heathrow connection.“These slots are absolutely critical for Shannon, Limerick and the Mid-West as they allow us to connect directly with Heathrow and from there, all of the major financial and investment centres in the world.“Aer Lingus’s slots in Heathrow are a unique national asset from which we in the Mid-West derive some really crucial benefits.  These assets must be preserved for the people.

It pertained to liberty and freedom of media.”, said the Supreme Court in its judgment dismissing the lawyer’s plea alleging ‘pick and choose’ policy of listing cases by the Registry.In his writ petition, Advocate Reepak Kansal pointed out that the Writ Petition tilted Arnab Ranjan Goswami v. UOI was filed on 23.4.2020 at 8.07 p.m. without annexure and that the Registry did not point out any defects, and a special supplementary list was uploaded on the same day. He said that he made a complaint to Secretary ­General in this regard but the same was not responded to.With respect to these allegations, the bench comprising of Justices Arun Mishra and S. Abdul Nazeer made the above quoted observations. The bench dismissed the plea observing that baseless and reckless allegations have been made against the Registry of the Court. The Court also imposed cost of Rs.100 (Rupees One Hundred only) on the lawyer ‘as a token to remind his responsibility towards noble profession and that he ought not to have preferred such a petition.’ On 23rd April, the bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and M R Shah had heard the petition filed by Republic TV Anchor seeking quashing of FIR filed against him for disturbing communal harmony over the gathering of Migrants in Bandra. The Court had also granted three weeks protection from arrest to Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief of the Republic TV, on the basis of the FIRs filed against him in the States of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana and Jammu & Kashmir.Later, the Court declined Goswami’s prayer to transfer the investigation from Maharashtra police to the Central Bureau of Investigation. The court also turned down his prayer to quash the FIR, saying that powers under Article 32 of the Constitution cannot be exercised for such purposes. However, the SC quashed the multiple FIRs filed in various states over the reports, and confined the investigation only to the FIR lodged in Mumbai.Click here to Read/Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
