OnlineTLC’s So Freaking Cheap Takes Penny-Pinching to the ExtremeE! OnlineUndoBen Godfrey’s late own goal extended Burnley’s unbeaten Premier League run to seven games as they climbed to ninth.They are one point behind seventh-placed Tottenham in the race for a spot in next season’s Europa League.The odds are still against Sean Dyche’s side as they have just one game left, while Tottenham, Sheffield United and Wolves all have two games to ensure they finish above the Clarets.“I don’t think I’ve played against a team with two sendings off. It was a bizarre game! We’ll take the clean sheet and the win,” Dyche said.“To have 15 clean-sheets and the wins on the table is very pleasing so I’m delighted for the players.”Emphasising their supreme organisation under Dyche, Burnley keeper Nick Pope is in contention to win the Premier League’s golden glove award for the most clean-sheets.He leads with 15, while Manchester City’s Ederson has 14.In their last home game before they return to the Championship next season, following a record fifth relegation from the Premier League, Norwich hardly covered themselves in glory.Daniel Farke’s bottom-of-the-table team have lost their last 10 games in all competitions and this was an embarrassment.The Canaries have failed to score in a league-high 19 games this season, including 11 of the past 13.They are the first English top-flight side to lose five consecutive home matches without scoring since Birmingham in 1922.“We walked into the trap and got two red cards. Naive, inexperienced, stupid, all the words are right. It’s not acceptable,” Farke said.“We are sitting on position 20. You won’t hear any excuse blaming the referee. My players walked into the trap.”The turning point came when Norwich were reduced to 10 men in the 35th minute as Argentine midfielder Buendia clashed with Ashley Westwood.Buendia elbowed the Burnley midfielder in the back of the head after a collision between the pair.Referee Kevin Friend watched a replay on the pitchside monitor before showing the red card.In first-half stoppage-time, Norwich’s season-long habit of shooting themselves in the foot resurfaced.Drmic was sent off after lunging into a reckless studs-up foul on Erik Pieters, with VAR consulted to approve Friend’s decision.Norwich were the first team to have multiple players sent off in the first half of a Premier League game since Stoke in 2015.A difficult day for Norwich got even worse moments later when Johann Gudmundsson’s cross picked out Wood six yards from goal.Wood launched himself into an overhead kick that crept past Tim Krul’s despairing dive.Krul was all that stood between Norwich and a thrashing as he denied Burnley several times in the second half.But, summing up a season to forget for Norwich, Godfrey made a complete hash of clearing Pieters’ cross and turned the ball into his own net in the 80th minute.  PUBG Mobile – Krafton IPO: PUBG Mobile promoters Krafton ready to break all records, aims 5 billion IPO Football Bett1Open 2021 Final: Liudmila Samsonova beats Belinda Bencic to clinch title Halle Open 2021 Final: Ugo Humbert defeats Andrey Rublev to become champion Queens Club Final: Matteo Berrettini beats Cameron Norrie in final to win titlelast_img read more

Saxons book final place in trying times for Tonga

first_imgReferee: R Poite (French)Att: 5357 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Billy Twelvetrees on his way to scoring a tryEngland Saxons  41Tonga 14England Saxons booked their place in the Churchill Cup final against Canada by destroying the Tonga pack in the Kingsholm rain. Stuart Lancaster’s side were awarded a hat-trick of penalty tries as a Jordan Crane inspired forward effort took Tonga apart with the captain himself and Billy Twelvetrees also getting on the scoresheet.It sets up a repeat of last year’s final against the Canucks – England won 38-18 – and Saxons Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “I thought our scrummaging was outstanding. We gave a couple of kgs away per man but technically we were better. If you’d have said at the start of the game that we were going to win 41-14 I would have taken that.  Our objective was to reach the final and now we want to win it – last year Canada gave us a real hard game and I am sure it will be the same this time.”Tonga will now play Italy A in the Plate final and their coach Isitolo Maka said: “It was a very tough match. I am very disappointed with the penalty tries. Without them we would have been in the game.”The Saxons broke through after just 11 minutes when referee Roman Poite lost patience with the collapsing Tongan scrum and awarded a penalty try which Rory Clegg converted. And four minutes later they were 14-0 up when Crane picked up and drove over to give Clegg another two points.Tonga struggled to make any inroads into the Saxons 22 with their only good run coming from centre Suka Hufanga but the move broke down. The Saxons pack were in the ascendency as they sent the Tongan scrum upwards and backwards and Poite headed to the posts for another penalty try.Right on halftime Clegg made it 24-0 with a penalty and the Saxons continued to turn the screw early in the second half when the fly half landed another. However, Tonga refused to throw in the towel and they were rewarded for their endeavour to take the line-out rather than penalty kick when captain Kisi Pulu took the ball at the back and when the ball was recycled Scarlets bound- Sione Timani drove over.But it was small respite as the Saxons forwards overpowered their opponents in another scrum and Poite awarded a hat-trick of penalty tries in the 63rd minute and Ofa Fainga’anuku was yellow carded for his sins.Mike Brown made an impact when he came on and made a midfield break before Crane showed some deft footwork with a grubberkick for Twelvetrees to gather and score. That was the end of Twelvetrees’ involvement as he was sent to the sinbin and Pepa Kolomotangi scored a consolation try when he picked up and drove over.

Boston activists protest U.S. threats against Iran

first_imgApproximately 75 peace activists gathered in downtown Boston, outside the Park Street Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority station, on June 22 to denounce U.S. war threats against Iran. The action came just two days after the news that U.S. President Donald Trump had called off a military strike against Iran just minutes before it would have hit.Speakers included Mojgan Haji of the National Iranian American Council, representatives from Massachussets Peace Action and the Coalition to Stop the Genocide in Yemen, New Democracy Coalition Director Kevin Peterson, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and several progressive journalists.Haji and others highlighted the long history of U.S. interference in Iran, focusing particularly on the 1953 coup that installed the repressive pro-U.S. Shah. They emphasized the solidarity between the Iranian people and the U.S. people, despite policies pursued by the U.S. government.Speakers also repeatedly denounced the U.S. use of economic sanctions, citing the shortages of medicine and other essential products that such policies cause, as well as the hundreds of thousands dead as a result of earlier sanctions on Iraq.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE (A political note: The Pence campaign will unveil its agricultural platform Tuesday in Indianapolis.) Facebook Twitter Farm Bill Will Be Top Priority in September By Gary Truitt – Aug 6, 2012 Joe DonnellyAfter leaving Washington without taking action on a new Farm Bill, both Republican and Democratic Congressmen from Indiana say action will occur in September.  Congressman Joe Donnelly, Democratic candidate for the US Senate seat from Indiana, told HAT he is ready to go back to Washington now and get a Farm Bill passed, “If I need to, I will hitchhike back to Washington to get to work on a Farm Bill.”  He said the Bill passed by the House Ag Committee reduces the deficit by $23 billion yet provides the kind of protection that farmers need, “What we are trying to do is reduce the deficit and stand up for our farmers as well.” Donnelly feels when Congress returns there will be action on the Farm Bill. Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bill Will Be Top Priority in September SHARE Mike PenceRepublican Congressmen Mike Pence, who  is running for Governor, says House GOP leaders will be more likely to move on the Farm Bill in September, “Now that several physical issues have been settled, it clears the way for consideration of the Farm Bill.

Appeal court agrees to release Jules Koum Koum after a month in prison

He was expected to be released as soon as the legal formalities were completed. Cameroonian reporter jailed since August, abandoned by justice system News Case against Amadou Vamoulké baseless, French lawyers tell Cameroon court CameroonAfrica The Douala appeal court today granted a provisional release order for Jules Koum Koum, the editor of the independent fortnightly Le Jeune Observateur, who has spent the past month in very harsh conditions in New Bell prison serving a six-month sentence for libel. He was expected to be released as soon as the legal formalities were completed.Reached by telephone, Koum told Reporters Without Borders the support and campaigning on his behalf by international organizations and local journalists and news media were very important. Without it, he would almost certainly have had to wait much longer before being released, he said.Reporters Without Borders said the Cameroonian authorities should learn their lesson from Koum’s case and ensure that the press never again has to endure such a harrowing ordeal. “Vigilance is still required because Le Jeune Observateur will have to appear in court again in other libel cases,” the press freedom organization warned.Le Jeune Observateur has to appear in court on 28 February to face another libel action from CPA, the insurance company whose lawsuits have been responsible for Koum’s imprisonment. The company filed a total of three related complaints over an article by Koum, but the judge refused to combine them into a single trial.Another lawsuit brought against the newspaper by the former defence minister and the current foreign minister, Laurent Esso, is due to be heard on 5 April.—————————26 January 2005 – Justice minister urged to intervene in case of journalist jailed for six monthsReporters Without Borders wrote today to Cameroon’s justice minister, Amadou Ali, asking him to intervene in the case of Le Jeune Observateur newspaper editor Jules Koum Koum, who has been held in New Bell prison in Douala since receiving a six-month sentence for libel on 10 January.”His imprisonment has stunned the press community in Cameroon and must come to an end, as it is unacceptable in a country that wants to show its support for press freedom,” the letter said, urging the minister to do everything in his power to obtain Koum’s release. A copy was sent to communication minister Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo. The editor of the fortnightly Le Jeune Observateur, Koum was convicted of libel over an article questioning the management of two insurance companies.——————————–19 January 2005 – Journalist sentenced to six months in prison over article about insurance companiesReporters Without Borders today condemned the six-month prison sentence imposed on 10 January on Jules Koum Koum, the editor of the independent fortnightly Le Jeune Observateur, for alleged libel in an article questioning the management of two insurance companies. Koum has been held in New Bell prison in Douala, the country’s business capital, ever since the sentence was handed down.”Imposing a prison sentence on a journalist for libel represents a clear step backwards for press freedom in Cameroon,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Far from being a crime, reporting that certain companies are not functioning properly comes under a journalist’s duty to inform the public,” the press freedom organisation stressed, endorsing a call for a “day without news” on 21 January issued by a Koum support committee.”It is time the Cameroon government stopped targeting the independent press and heeded calls by journalists for the decriminalization of press offences,” Reporters Without Borders said, adding, “if it really wants to prove its support for press freedom, it should follow the example set in this regard by countries such as Togo, the Central African Republic and Uganda.”Koum was convicted of libel as a result of an action brought by the CPA insurance company over an article he published on 8 February 2004 questioning the reliability and good management of CPA and another insurance company, Satellite. Some sources claim that the judge in charge of the case is related to a CPA executive.His conviction has outraged the independent press, which formed a Koum support committee on the initiative of L’Aurore Plus editor Michel Michaut Moussala. Its members include Le Front editor Peter William Mandio, Habeas Corpus editor Samuel Mben Mben and Nyemb Popoli, who edits a satirical newspaper. On the “day without news” they have called for 21 January, radio stations will only play music in the morning. Moussala and Cameroon Union of Journalists president Célestin Lingo went to see communication minister Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo this afternoon, but Mbonjo said he could not see them without an appointment and suggested a meeting later in the day. As Moussala had to return to Doula, he will probably see the minister next week.

World-class Gardens International opens in Limerick City

first_imgWhatsApp Pictured are from left: Michael Noonan TD, Louise Cotter, Project Architect from Carr Cotter Naessens Denis Byrne Architects and James Collins – Mayor of the City and County of Limerick.Pic Sean Curtin Tue Media.THE doors were officially opened on the first major build project in the biggest Irish commercial property development programme undertaken under the auspices of a local authority as Gardens International in Limerick was unveiled.The 112,000 sq. ft development, which was opened by Michael Noonan, T.D. in the presence of Mayor of the City and County of Limerick James Collins, has been completed to tenant fit-out stage after an 18 month, €17.6million build.  The project has been built to LEED Gold standards, which is among the top international benchmarks for sustainability.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking at the launch, Mayor of the City and County Council James Collins said the level of ambition shown by going for top international design and build standards is a statement about where Limerick has arrived at today.“It’s a project that is a motif for a new Limerick.  We’ve built the very best because we want to attract the best.  It’s a build that respectfully and brilliantly merges old and new. It has raised the bar, created a remarkable new structure and standard here in the centre of Limerick,” said Mayor James Collins.Limerick Twenty Thirty commenced the development in 2017 at the site, which stood half built for almost a decade after work had stalled mid-flight following the economic crash.The development is a striking example of ‘old meets new’ as the project mixes the stunning architecture of the early 19th century Roches Hanging Gardens, which included roof-top gardens of exotic fruits; the Mercantile Building; the former General Post Office developed there a century later and a gleaming new build to the rear to form a brilliant architectural blend that sets a new standard for the city and region.Deputy Michael Noonan described the official opening as “an important and proud day for Limerick”.“As Minister of Finance at the time, I was delighted to give my support to the Limerick Twenty Thirty project. Today validates the commitment and courage shown by Chairman Denis Brosnan, by Limerick City and County Council Chief Executive Conn Murray and others,” he said.Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council Conn Murray said, “Limerick Twenty Thirty was one of a number of ambitious outputs from our Limerick 2030 Economic and Spatial Plan unveiled in 2013.  We identified a number of key deliverables in that, including creating 12,000 jobs over the lifetime of the plan. We’ve already achieved that in Limerick in the five years since and Limerick Twenty Thirty is about ensuring we continue to build on that.”Limerick Twenty Thirty CEO David Conway said, “This is a proud moment for our team at Limerick Twenty Thirty. In a short time, we’ve come along way.  We’ve committed to, and delivered on, developing a world-class office development here at Gardens International. It’s a statement about the ambition of this city today and the ambition that Limerick Twenty Thirty is tasked with delivering on.”For more information, go to: http://gardenslimerick.com/ Email Limerick on Covid watch list RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsBusinessWorld-class Gardens International opens in Limerick CityBy Staff Reporter – March 20, 2019 1972 Facebook Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic Advertisement Printcenter_img Previous articleLimerick FC bow out of EA Sports CupNext articleYoung Chef of the Years Meal for a Hero Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSbusinessGardens InternationalLimerick 2030Limerick City and CountyNews Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Linkedin Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Twitter Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more

CNN Business says that if things continue at November 2020’s pace, it will take the US until March 2024 to return to where it was in February 2020.Because of COVID-19 occupancy restrictions, online shopping trends, and other effects of social distancing, many industries haven’t hired back the majority of their laid-off or furloughed employees. In fact, only around half of the people who lost their jobs have returned, and the recovery slowed significantly in November.The one market, however, that is holding steady is the housing market. In fact, it has been able to recover better than other industries.“The only major sector to display immunity to the economic impacts of the coronavirus is the housing market, which has experienced a strong V-shaped recovery,” said Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist at First American. “This is largely due to the fact this has been a services-driven recession, disproportionally hurting younger, lower-wage renters that are less likely to be homeowners or home buyers.”Kushi also reports that residential building is approaching pre-pandemic levels, which will help with inventory.“Since more hammers leads to more homes, the continued rise in residential construction employment was welcome news for a housing market in desperate need of more supply,” said Kushi.Overall, the November 2020 Jobs Report does show 245,000 new jobs during the month, so things are improving. However, compared to previous months, it shows a major slowdown. October added 610,000 jobs, for example.The economy is down 9.8 million jobs since February, and at only 245,000 new jobs a month—pending this new trend sticks—it will take years to catch back up to pre-pandemic numbers. Over half of jobs have been recovered in the last eight months, but the curve is flattening rapidly. And usually, this time of year sees an increase in jobs with temporary workers being hired for busy holiday needs. With COVID-19, that isn’t happening this year.But those who are still gainfully employed are purchasing homes, keeping the housing market steady.“Indeed, total low-earning job losses in the third quarter were down 9.6 percent relative to the first quarter, while total high-earning job losses were only down 2.7 percent,” said Kushi. “The bifurcated landscape has allowed potential homeowners who are still employed to channel increased savings towards buying a home and take advantage of record low mortgages.” Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

Accordingly, I direct the Executive Council to re-consider the issue regarding considering the 100% waiver on these two heads,” the Single Bench of Justice Amit Rawal ordered. He has asked the University to take a final decision on this aspect, within a period of fifteen days. The Court was hearing a writ petition filed by 28 students of the Law University, studying in different semesters. They had submitted before the High Court that even though they were permitted to deposit fees in instalments amid the Covid induced financial crisis, there was no reduction in fees. They were specifically aggrieved by levy of additional charges for facilities that were not being used during suspension of physical classes. Advocate Santhosh Mathews submitted that reduction on different heads, like 25% on library fees, Information System Facility fee, Electricity Charges, Student’s Welfare Fund, Medical/Gym/ Fitness fee, 30% on Sports & Games fee, Moot Court fee, bus fee, 50% reduction on Student’s Council fee and debating Society fee, was granted. However, it was contended that since the students are not availing the Gym facility or bus services, at least there should have been 100% deduction under those heads. The Petitioners had also relied on a recent verdict of the Calcutta High Court in Vineet Ruia v. Principal Secretary, Department of School Education, Government of West Bengal & Ors., whereby the fees charged by private schools in the State has been slashed by 20%. ‘It Is Obvious That Schools Have Incurred Less Expenditure Over A Prolonged Period Of Time’: Calcutta HC Orders Min 20% Reduction In Private School Fees The Kerala High Court was however not convinced with this submission and it observed that “Calcutta High Court is based upon different facts, which cannot be taken as a precedent for decision of the controversy involved herein.” It further recorded that it was conscious of the settled position of law that a Court cannot, under Article 226 of the Constitution, assume the role of an Appellate Court even if two different views are possible. Having said that, it proceeded to pass a direction to the University to reconsider its decision for levy of fees under the two heads mentioned above. The Bench also made it clear that the Executive Council of the University, after decision to fix a time will notify the time-line to students for availment of the new fees structure without insisting on payment of fine. Significantly, the University had contended that it was not possible to further grant any reduction on the fees for additional facilities as per Section 20 of the NUALS Act, 2005, which empowers the Executive Council to manage and regulate finances, accounts, business and other administrative fares of the University and also to approve financial estimates of the income and expenditure of University. “It is not appropriate to make one-one comparison of fees receipts against usage,” the University submitted.
