Nigel Owens reacts to THAT clear out on Faf de Klerk

first_imgTuesday Apr 6, 2021 Nigel Owens reacts to THAT clear out on Faf de Klerk Referee Nigel Owens has said that Scarlets lock Jake Ball’s tackle on Sale Sharks’ Faf de Klerk in the Heineken Champions Cup on Sunday “should be a red card”.ADVERTISEMENTOwens was responding to the many complaints online that Ball went punished in the match despite making contact with the head of de Klerk as the scrum-half was picking the ball up from the base of the ruck.The incident was looked at during the match to see whether the lock was offside, but the high shot was strangely overlooked in the Sharks’ 57-14 win.While Owens did not explicitly state whether he thought it should have been a red card or not, he responded to those who were insistent on Twitter that contact was made to the head by saying that it should have been a red card if that was the case.Moreover, the Welshman emphasised that the ball being out or not is irrelevant.ADVERTISEMENTOwens has not necessarily unearthed a complex or unknown Law in this situation, which is all the more confusing how Ball managed to remain on the pitch.A cursory look on social media would show that the vast majority of fans clearly saw contact to the head of de Klerk from Ball’s shoulder/arm, with some providing photos and GIFS to make it clearer.Some events over the past weekend suggest that there is still room for improvement in terms of officiating, particularly with regards to the television match officials. What makes the incident more bizarre, however, is how the illegality of the tackle was not noticed when reviewing it for being offside.The South African came out of the challenge unscathed and played on, although he could have suffered a head or leg injury, but was quick to protest to the officials.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 10 WEEKS AGO FAF DE KLERK: Twitter takes off after nasty-looking… 10 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Foley carded for flattening Barrett… 10 WEEKS AGO Chris Ashton picks up heavy ban for dangerous… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House H / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects

This is a house designed for a couple in Tokyo. Since the site was surrounded by streets on its three sides, we thought about incorporating the remaining street that continues from the city into the house. The street twist around the house, transforming into an outdoors stairway, a greenhouse-like terrace, a garden leading to the tea ceremony room, and continuing eventually to the rooftop. By wrapping the house with the street, we created a home that can be directly entered from the outside through seven different entryways.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Kai NakamuraWhen a house has many entrance, it also becomes a house with many faces. For example, guests are invited to enter from a bright entrance close to the street side, whereas if the residents were to come home alone, they would slip through a door between the walls in the back. When a group of people arrive they would climb the outdoor stairway to enter directly to the second-floor, using the large terrace with a bench as a large entrance hall. If the guest room on the third-floor were to be rented out to a friend, the small garden facing the room will become its private entry. To enter the low-lit tea ceremony room, people would use the very low and narrow entrance called nijiri-guchi across the rooftop garden.Save this picture!Courtesy of Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Kai NakamuraAlthough it is only a single house, one approaches it differently depending on where they enter, as if they are accessing a completely different world. Beside the outdoor approaches, there are other elements inside such as an elevator that runs vertically through the floors, and stairway that passes between the narrow spaces. When traveling through the house, the indoor and outdoor experiences naturally merge into one another. With daybeds, kitchen, and a table by the window, the house became a three-dimension, city-like home dispersed with many places along its line of flow.Save this picture!Courtesy of Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessReconsidering School Design: Indoor and Outdoor Learning as a Solution for a Healthy…Architecture NewsMVRDV Transforms Disused Urban Factory into Creative Hub in Shenzhen, ChinaArchitecture News Share House H / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse H / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsSave this picture!© Kai Nakamura+ 22Curated by Hana Abdel Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945840/house-h-onishimaki-plus-hyakudayuki-architects Clipboard Japan House H / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects Architects: Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects Area Area of this architecture project Projects Houses CopyHouses•Japan Photographscenter_img “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945840/house-h-onishimaki-plus-hyakudayuki-architects Clipboard Area:  215 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2018 Year:  ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeOnishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramOn FacebookJapanPublished on August 18, 2020Cite: “House H / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki Architects” 18 Aug 2020.

Mexican authorities failed to protect journalist murdered in Quintana Roo

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador to prioritize the protection of journalists after Rubén Pat, a local news website editor in Playa del Carmen, in the southeastern state of Quintana Roo, became the second journalist to be murdered in Mexico in the space of two weeks. His murder follows that of magazine editor Luis Pérez García in Mexico City on 9 July. Organisation Receive email alerts RSF_en 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Rubén Pat had sought protection after receiving threats but had been granted very limited protective measures. The editor of the online weekly Semanario Playa News, he was shot six times in a café this morning, less than a month after the weekly’s crime reporter, José Guadalupe Chan Dzib, was himself the victim of an execution-style murder in a bar.After receiving threats via WhatsApp in May, Pat had requested urgent protection from the Federal Mechanism for Protecting Journalists, but had been given just a GPS and a panic button.When RSF contacted Pat after Chan’s murder, he complained about the inadequacy of these protective measures and reported that the threats were continuing. RSF then contacted the Federal Mechanism and requested urgent reinforcement of Pat’s protection. The request went unanswered.Pat was arrested arbitrarily, threatened and tortured by members of the local police in the nearby municipality of Solidaridad in June 2017, a few days after revealing information about links between local officials and criminal gangs.“The Mexican authorities must draw the inevitable conclusion from this terrible event, namely that the Federal Mechanism for Protecting  Journalists failed in its duty to protect Rubén Pat although his situation of vulnerability had been known for a long time,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “We fully support the staff of Semanario Playa News and we call on the authorities to lose no time in identifying the perpetrators and instigators of this execution-style killing.”Two journalists murdered in two weeksThe Mexico City attorney-general’s office announced just yesterday that magazine editor Luis Pérez García, 79, was murdered, and did not die from asphyxiation in a fire in his Mexico City home, as was originally assumed when firemen, summoned by neighbours, found his body on 9 July. Officials now believe that intruders struck Pérez on the back of the head before setting fire to his apartment in order to conceal the fact that he had been murdered.RSF urges investigators not to minimize the possibility that Pérez was killed in connection with his journalism, and calls on the authorities to ensure that those responsible for this cowardly murder are identified and brought to justice as quickly as possible. Pérez had edited the magazine Encuesta de Hoy for more than 30 years and was a member of the Mexican Association of Radio Hosts (ANLM).Pérez and Pat are the seventh and eighth journalists to be murdered this year in Mexico. They follow Héctor González Antonio, Juan Carlos Huerta, Leobardo Vázquez Atzin, Carlos Domínguez Rodríguez, José Guadalupe Chan Dzib and Pamela Montenegro.Last month, on the eve of Mexico’s elections, RSF called on the next president to lose no time in reining in this spiral of violence. These latest murders have only reinforced the urgency of the need to protect journalists in Mexico, which is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

This market action could be self-fulfilling, because it undercuts claims that the Fed needs to use a meeting to ‘prepare the market’ for an upcoming hike.”Still, not all economists predict a hike after March 15.

The bench comprised by Justices Pankaj Kumar Jaiswal and Dinesh Kumar Singh has asked the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council to file an affidavit setting out the reasons for non-disposal of the proceedings since two years. The Petitioner had approached the High Court, through Advocates K C Kaushik and Rahul Kaushik, stating that the disqualification petition filed against Dinesh (Respondent No. 3) has been pending before the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council for over two years now. In 2016, Dinesh was declared elected to the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council from RaeBareli Constituency, as a candidate sponsored by Indian National Congress. However, the party filed a disqualification petition against him April 2018, after he tendered a resignation to join the BJP. It is the case of the Petitioner that as per Article 191(2) of the Constitution of India read with Tenth Schedule, Dinesh stands disqualified for being member of the Legislative Council. Nevertheless, he has been availing all the facilities that are available to any member of the Legislative Council, due to pendency of the petition. It was submitted that during 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Dinesh filed his nomination as a candidate set up by the BJP, “without tendering his resignation” as Member of the Legislative Council, even though he was declared elected on the ticket of Congress by the Returning Officer. It was further averred that objections for rejection of his candidature as a candidate of the BJP were filed by the Congress however, the nomination Form was declared valid by the Returning Officer. In these circumstances the Petitioner pointed out, “Respondent No.3 is drawing all the facilities of Member Legislative Council even though it is a clear cut case of disqualification as per Article 191 of the Constitution of India read with Tenth Schedule.” Reliance was placed on KeishamMeghachandra Singh v. The Hon’ble Speaker Manipur Legislative Assembly &Ors., , whereby the Supreme Court had fixed an outer limit of three months for deciding disqualification petitions, from the date of filing. The Petitioner also refereed to Shiva Nandan Prasad Singh v. Chairman, Bihar Legislative Council & Ors., (2004) 8 5CC 747, whereby it was held that “on the plain language of Paragraph 2, the disqualification comes into force or becomes effective on the happening of the event.” The Petitioner had thus sought a direction to the Legislative Council to decide the disqualification petition within a period of four weeks and in the interim, restrain the Respondent from attending the Legislative Council or availing any facility thereof. On consideration of the aforesaid the bench directed the Principal Secretary of the UP Legislative Council, Lucknow “to file his affidavit and point out to this Court as to why the matter has not been decided within time as fixed by the Court in similar matters and submit his explanation on or before Friday.” The matter will now be taken up on June 19.
