It should be that controlled an environment.”However as per protocols issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), players will have an option.“All athletes and support staff should be engaged in a 1:1 check-in prior to resumption of organised step one training to ensure they have understood the sport specific risks and mitigations, training site protocols in place, are physically and mentally well enough to engage in return to training and have actively ‘opted in’ to engaging in step one return to training,” the document stated.“It will be for individual sports to agree with their athletes any conditions for their return. All athletes and staff should also be clear on their route to ‘opt out’ of the organised training environment under Step One conditions at any time without unreasonable steps being taken against them consequently.”Even the ECB Director agreed that they have to create an environment where West Indies and Pakistan both feel safe while travelling to the United Kingdom.“It can be quite scary but we are doing everything we possibly can to answer all of West Indies’ questions. We will be speaking to Pakistan as well and mitigate as much risk as we possibly can. We can’t mitigate all risk but as much as possible to get guys comfortable.”However Giles assured that a complete risk assessment would be done before taking the plunge.“We are also outside where we know the risks are far less. We will certainly carry out the right risk assessments at the venues. We will make sure all the staff are trained and that we have the right equipment, including PPE [personal protective equipment]. We will make sure everything is there for the guys to go about their business as safely as possible.“Would I be confident if I were a West Indies player? I would be nervous, certainly, but we are all nervous aren’t we? I’m not making light of this but there are risks every time you go outside the house. We need to mitigate as many of the risks as we possibly can.” Latest Sports News Sport News Viking Classic Birmingham 2021 Final: Ons Jabeur beats Daria Kasatkina to clinch title Previous articleCricket Business : Pakistan cricket team tour to Ireland postponedNext articleCricket : NZC announces central contracts, Kyle Jamieson rewarded for India show Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

Renovation of a reinforced concrete terraced house built in 1968. In 1966, this residential area was established and construction began, in the following 10 years, a variety of terraced houses was build. This residential area played a major role in the development of Oyamazaki; nowadays many of the buildings have undergone repeated renovations to gain extra floor areas.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiOver the time, this house too had a series of ambiguous rooms and corridors added to the original plan, resulting in the rooms in the center to become dark without natural light. Due to these continuous small changes, you could call it a migratory property, resulting in a unique plan type, new housing would never have. Reinforced concrete buildings often have structural load-bearing walls, which are difficult to remove, the same applies to this house. Therefore, the load-bearing walls was left, and it was decided to work with and take advantage of the inherent migratory nature. Instead of pathways and connecting several destinations,Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiI tried to plan an environment where the connection of spaces was more natural and connected with a continuous flow line. I wanted to create a space that eliminates the empty pathways by adding functions and the option of stay. Various functions and actions of everyday life mix and connects the spaces, a resident moving around the house is encouraged to settle down or act in different places. The garden of this house had been left unattended for many years. It was unkempt and desolated. However, it contained various species of firmly rooted trees and plants.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiNo major changes were made, with simple gardening and pruning, the garden was restored into a wonderful garden. From the reestablished garden, light now enters the house and reflects further into the rooms by the white painted walls. On the first floor the walls of the staircase and the Japanese-style room is removed to brighten and connect the space. The stairwell is further brightened by replacing the second floor wall with shoji.

Ammado introduces donation gift cards for Christmas

first_imgAffiliate programmeAmmado is working to spread the word of the Donation Gift Cards by running an affiliate marketing programme for organisations whose networks may be interested in Donation Gift Cards.Affiliates generate income each time they result in a new company signing up for the gift cards.About AmmadoAmmado connects non-profits, companies, and individuals from 140 countries who are committed to positive change with more than 1.6 million nonprofit organisations worldwide. As well as working with small organisation, they also work with the International Red Cross, Oxfam, and Save the Children.The platform enables companies to create personalised charitable campaigns, for one charity or several, that engage employees and/or customers. Companies can introduce workplace giving, disaster appeals, or fundraising campaigns from a single digital platform.The Switzerland-based company supports donations in 80 currencies and 30 different payment methods and publishes in 12  languages. Howard Lake | 15 December 2014 | News Global donation platform Ammado has introduced a Donation Gift Card, enabling people to make a charitable gift as a present and let the recipient choose which charity to donate it to.The Gift Aid is designed for corporates as an alternative way to offer a reward or gift to employees or clients. The introductory video suggests that as a CSR tool they offer a more tangible benefit than traditional mugs, pens and badges with the company’s logo on.How the Donation Gift Card works[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PomE8zgTvIY[/youtube] Companies first need to create an Ammado account, then they choose the number of gift cards and their value, and click “Buy Gift Cards.” They pay by credit card or PayPal, and the cards are delivered via email or downloaded for distribution in a card or even to be printed onto a promotional item like a bottle.The cards are essentially a 12-digit code voucher, available in 78 currencies for any denomination.Companies can customise the card to support their global charitable brand strategy or leave it open to any charity. The use of each gift card is tracked so Ammado can provide details to the company of how each card has been redeemed. Early adopters of Ammado Donation Gift Cards include Citrix, Eon, and General Electric.Peter Conlon, CEO and founder of ammado, said:“The ammado Donation Gift Card allows companies and individuals to cut through the clutter of traditional corporate gifts and give something truly meaningful this holiday season, or equally on an ongoing basis as incentive or reward… Empowering those you respect and admire with the ability to support a cause that they’re passionate about is far more rewarding than receiving another bottle of mediocre wine!” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Perdue Signals Aid Plan Announcement Possible Around Labor Day

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Perdue Signals Aid Plan Announcement Possible Around Labor Day By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 27, 2018 Perdue Signals Aid Plan Announcement Possible Around Labor Day Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue in Chicago this week says he is hopeful his aid program for farmers will be released by Labor Day and the harvest season. Perdue spoke at the United Fresh event Tuesday and told the Chicago Tribune that while farmers want “trade, not aid,” the Department of Agriculture is following the trade war on a “weekly basis,” and assessing the impacts of trade disputes while having a plan ready to assist farmers. Perdue continues to hold off on announcing those plans, but conceded he has “probably” given himself a “Labor Day deadline” with the corn and soybean harvest looming.Perdue says he and USDA see the trade environment as “temporary.” A 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans as part of the trade dispute will take effect next week. While there may not be enough export capacity globally for China to stop all U.S. soybean purchases completely, Brazil’s production and exports are growing, and China is seeking alternatives to U.S. agricultural products.

Refusal to renew ZDF editor-in-chief’s contract would threaten broadcasting independence

first_img Receive email alerts RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Help by sharing this information GermanyEurope – Central Asia German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom Reporters Without Borders deplores the reported intention of the majority of the board of the German public television network ZDF – who are led by members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrat Union – to reject the director-general’s request to renew editor-in-chief Nikolaus Brender’s contract for another five years.The press freedom organisation believes the opposition to the extension of Brender’s contract is motivated by party politics and, as such, is a blatant violation of the principle of independence of public broadcasters, as formulated by the federal constitutional court. The case has already prompted criticism in other European countries and has the potential to damage Germany’s image abroad.“The system of public broadcasting must maintain its status as a role model for countries where governments use TV channels as political tools,” said Michael Rediske, spokesman of the German section of Reporters Without Borders. “The principle of independence is already being weakened by political representatives on the boards of broadcasters.”Rediske added: “Brender’s replacement against the director-general’s wishes would be a blatant breach of the principle of media freedom. ZDF’s manipulation by the ruling coalition would undermine not only the director-general, but also its journalists, who are bound by the principle of independence.”At a time when European Union leaders such as French President Nicolas Sarkozy and, even more so, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi are extending government influence over the media, independent public broadcasters of the kind that exist in Britain or Germany take on even greater importance. The Brender case will determine whether the German system of broadcasting autonomy, as enshrined in the country’s constitution and legislation, is still capable of fulfilling its promise of journalistic independence.

Mc Gowan says action is needed on unfinished estates

first_img WhatsApp By News Highland – March 21, 2013 As a list is published of unfinished estates whose residents are exempt from the Property Tax, a Donegal Councillor says there are several such estates in Donegal which are not on the exempted list. He also says there are  many instances of people in established homes beside such estates which are being affected by the infrastructure problems associated with them.Cllr Patrick Mc Gowan says there is no evidence of any political will to tackle the issue, when what is needed is for the government, the council, developers, the banks and NAMA to sit down and find a formula to address what is a growing problem.At present, the council is assessing a High Court direction to take over two estates in Bundoran, and Cllr Mc Gowan says while the council is willing to look at taking over estates, it cannot do so alone.In the meantime, he says, people are living in intolerable conditions……..[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/111pmcg1pm.mp3[/podcast] Calls for maternity restrictions to be lifted at LUH Mc Gowan says action is needed on unfinished estates Pinterest Business Matters Ep 45 – Boyd Robinson, Annette Houston & Michael Margey LUH system challenged by however, work to reduce risk to patients ongoing – Dr Hamilton Twitter Google+ News Google+center_img Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Almost 10,000 appointments cancelled in Saolta Hospital Group this week Facebook Guidelines for reopening of hospitality sector published WhatsApp Facebook Previous articleGAA – Donegal And Derry To Clash In Ulster U21 Semi FinalNext articleFianna Fail calls on Health Minster to resign in wake of Consultant Dermatologist comments News Highland Need for issues with Mica redress scheme to be addressed raised in Seanad alsolast_img read more

Chandrachud remarked in a judgment he delivered on Thursday.The Judge observed thus in his judgment which quashed the notification issued by the Gujarat Labour and Employment Department granting exemptions to all factories in Gujarat from provisions of the Factories Act, 1948 relating to daily working hours, weekly working hours, intervals for rest and spread overs of adult workers as well as from payment of overtime wages at double rates viz. Section 59.  It was held that the notifications, in denying humane working conditions and overtime wages provided by law, are an affront to the workers’ right to life and right against forced labour that are secured by Articles 21 and 23 of the Constitution. The observation about sentinel on the qui vive reads thus:”The Constitution allows for economic experiments. Judicial review is justifiably held off in matters of policy, particularly economic policy. But the Directive Principles of State Policy cannot be reduced to oblivion by a sleight of interpretation. To a worker who has faced the brunt of the pandemic and is currently laboring in a workplace without the luxury of physical distancing, economic dignity based on the rights available under the statute is the least that this Court can ensure them…Justice Patanjali Sastry immortalized that phrase of this court as the sentinel on the qui vive in our jurisprudence by recognizing it in State of Madras vs. V G Row. The phrase may have become weather-beaten in articles, seminars and now, in the profusion of webinars, amidst the changing times. Familiar as the phrase sounds, judges must constantly remind themselves of its value through their tenures, if the call of the constitutional conscience is to retain meaning”‘Sentinel on the qui vive”  is usually translated as watchful guardian. Qui vive means watchful or alert. In State of Madras vs. V G Row, Justice Sastry, in his judgment, had made the following observation:”What is sometimes overlooked, that our Constitution contains express provisions for judicial review of legislation as to its conformity with the Constitution, unlike as in America where the Supreme Court has assumed extensive powers of reviewing legislative acts undercover of the widely interpreted “due process” clause in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. If, then, the courts in this country face up to such important and none too easy task, it is not out of any desire to tilt at legislative authority in a crusader’s spirit, but in discharge of a duty plainly laid upon them by the Constitution. This is especially true as regards the “fundamental rights “, as to which this Court has been assigned the role of a sentinel on the qui vive. While the Court naturally attaches great weight to the legislative judgment, it cannot desert its own duty to determine finally the constitutionality of an impugned statute.”Case name:  Gujarat Mazdoor Sabha vs. State of GujaratCase no. :Writ Petition (Civil) No. 708 of 2020Coram: Justices DY Chandrachu Indu Malhotra and KM JosephCounsel: Sr. Adv Sanjay Singhvi, Adv Aparna Bhat, for petitioners;  Adv Deepanwita Priyanka for StateClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

She later withdrew this statement.”There was certainly a row in the sense that there was an argument between these two,” Mr Hugh Hartnett SC said, responding to questions from the tribunal chairman. Mr Hartnett represents Ms Marisa Simms at the tribunal.”Certainly voices were raised by both parties and there is no doubt about that,” Mr Hartnett said.The barrister said a duvet was pulled off the bed, but Ms Simms was not pulled out of the bed by her arm.”She went out onto the street in her pyjamas and a coat over them, as she awaited the arrival of Mr (Jim) Quinn,” Mr Hartnett said.Mr Quinn, a self-employed counsellor, earlier said that he travelled to Churchill after receiving a telephone call from Garda Harrison. He said he was not confused about who had called him, and that the phone call had been from Garda Harrison, not Marisa Simms.Mr Hartnett said when Ms Simms was contacted by GSOC, the Garda ombudsman commission, her reaction had been to withdraw her statement.The barrister also said Garda Harrison did not bang a dashboard with his fist, but “there was a throwing of keys against the dashboard.” He said the statement Ms Simms had made to gardaí was “intrusive and unnecessary”.Mr Mark Harty SC said that it was not Garda Harrison’s position that Garda HQ had directed Tusla to investigate him, but that such a direction could have come from gardaí in Donegal.The tribunal continues.

Jane Thrash places in Ms. Senior Alabama Pageant Print Article Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 11:01 pm Monday, June 11, 2012 “Wallace State Community College was a great host site and we were also entertained with a tribute dinner with the judges and members of the Ms. Senior Alabama board in Cullman,” she said.Preparing for the pageant’s opening number took time and hard work but was enjoyable, Thrash said.“The judges’ interview was conducted by two former Ms. Senior Americas and a news anchor from the NBC affiliate in Birmingham,” she said. “For my first question, I was asked if I could go anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would it be? I said Hawaii because I’m an outdoor person. I love the sun and the water and the energy that the water creates.”Other questions dealt with promoting senior citizens, requiring advanced placement courses for all high school students and juggling the role of Ms. Senior Alabama along with work and other activities.

Man dead for years identified as suspect in 1984 murder of 15-year-old girl

first_imgSalisbury Police(SALISBURY, N.C.) — Decades after a teenage girl was stabbed to death at her grandparents’ home, DNA and genetic genealogy have been used to identify her suspected killer — a man dead for years.On June 15, 1984, the body of 15-year-old Reesa Trexler was found nude in a bedroom at her grandparents’ house in North Carolina, Salisbury Police Sgt. Travis Shulenberger said at a news conference on Tuesday.Trexler had been stabbed multiple times, and her spinal cord was severed, Shulenberger said.Semen from her unknown killer was recovered from her body, Shulenberger said, but the case went unsolved for decades.In 2018, Trexler’s sister went on the “Dr. Phil” show, which “sparked new interest in the case,” Shulenberger said.Salisbury police detectives and state investigators conducted interviews, reviewed evidence, collected DNA samples and worked with crime labs to try to solve the case, Shulenberger said.This year, it was the use of genetic genealogy that cracked the case.Genetic genealogy compares unknown DNA evidence from a crime scene to public databases, which are populated by the DNA of family members who voluntarily upload their own.Genetic genealogy has been called a “game-changer” in cracking cold cases. Since the arrest of the suspected “Golden State Killer” in April 2018, about 100 suspects have been identified through the technology, according to Parabon NanoLabs Chief Genetic Genealogist CeCe Moore, who worked on the Trexler case.But as law enforcement agencies across the country ramp up the use of genetic genealogy, some are concerned the tool is an invasion of privacy to those who voluntarily submit their DNA to databases for family ancestry purposes.When the DNA from the semen left on Trexler’s body was uploaded to a public genetic database, Parabon genealogists reverse-engineered the suspect’s family tree to determine possible suspects, police said.Authorities narrowed down the family members to determine their suspect, who was in his 40s at the time of the crime.The suspect, who was not named, died in 2007, said police.With a court order, investigators exhumed the suspect’s body and determined that his DNA matched the suspect’s semen from the crime scene.“Fortunately, DNA science has come a long way since 1984,” North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein said at Tuesday’s news conference, calling it “a powerful tool.”Police previously had speculated Trexler’s killer was a family member, but the suspect, who had a criminal history including assault with a deadly weapon, was not related and had no connection to the Trexler family, Shulenberger said. Police did not immediately explain why they declined to name the deceased suspect.Police now consider the case closed. No charges are expected.“Nothing is going to bring Reesa back,” Shulenberger said, “but we have some closure to the case now.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Genetic connectivity from the Arctic to the Antarctic: Sclerolinum contortum and Nicomache lokii (Annelida) are both widespread in reducing environments

first_imgThe paradigm of large geographic ranges in the deep sea has been challenged by genetic studies, which often reveal putatively widespread species to be several taxa with more restricted ranges. Recently, a phylogeographic study revealed that the tubeworm Sclerolinum contortum (Siboglinidae) inhabits vents and seeps from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Here, we further test the conspecificity of the same populations of S. contortum with additional mitochondrial and nuclear markers. We also investigate the genetic connectivity of another species with putatively the same wide geographic range – Nicomache lokii (Maldanidae). Our results support the present range of S. contortum, and the range of N. lokii is extended from vents and seeps in the Nordic Seas to mud volcanoes in the Barbados Trench and Antarctic vents. Sclerolinum contortum shows more pronounced geographic structure than N. lokii, but whether this is due to different dispersal capacities or reflects the geographic isolation of the sampled localities is unclear. Two distinct mitochondrial lineages of N. lokii are present in the Antarctic, which may result from two independent colonization events. The environmental conditions inhabited by the two species and implications for their distinct habitat preference is discussed.last_img read more
