first_imgMonday Dec 21, 2009 Leicester Tigers stay in the hunt by beating Clermont After losing in a disappointing way a week earlier, Leicester came back nicely to beat Clermont 20-15 to keep their Heineken Cup hopes alive.Tigers scrumhalf Ben Youngs kept British & Irish Lion Harry Ellis on the bench for the full 80 minutes, as he once again showed his promise with a mature overall performance, and an excellent break that set up a try for Anthony Allen.“I was going to score myself but there was a lot of noise outside me and I thought if I dont give it to Anthony then he might kill me,” Youngs explained.“Its probably the biggest game Ive played for Leicester. I had not started much before this season so its good to get a run of games. I am really pleased that the coaches played me for the full 80 so it shows they have faith in me.”Despite him setting up the more than valuable try, assistant coach Matt OConnor has told the 20 year old that he needs to focus more on his all-round game, than only producing the big moments.“Bens a good player and he will play more and more footie for us if he continues to play like that. Hes a special talent, but hes got to make sure he has the nuts and bolts and the basics of his game every week thats what makes a team tick.“We will take the special things when they come, but hes got to be good at the basics every week,” he added.Kiwi Scott Hamilton scored ran away for a vital try six minutes from time after a poor Toby Flood kick landed in his hands somehow, allowing him to sprint 55 metres and dive in at the corner.Brock James kicked a second penalty to take his side into bonus-point contention, following on from his impressive three drop goals earlier in the match.Leicester and Clermont are now both four points behind the leaders of Pool 3, the Ospreys, who will meet both sides next month. :: Related Posts :: Leicester Tigers snowed under by a rampant Clermont Auvergne Time: 05:04ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This project is produced in a context were the volume of the building is previously strictly define by urban regulations so the exterior form is not a problem to be considered, – thanks! – For this reason it is possible to concentrate the design energy in other conditions. In this case in the specific study of the functional variables of housing: type. Save this picture!© David FrutosThe proposal is a building protected by two galleries, that has a interior dwellings space released of the presence of the structure. The mechanical and wet spaces are concentrated around a “technical wall”. This decision allows: cross ventilation, free disposition of storage and flexible spaces. Save this picture!© David FrutosThe galleries are configured as an intermediate space between the inner housing and contact with the city. They are warm in winter and cool in summer. They are a thermal insulation space for the building and a same time a in-between space for different uses. The dwelling is thought around natural regulated thermal condition, the space in-between defend from noise and seeks defuse light, and protect from exterior views,  to provide the best living ambience.  The use of galleries is very traditional in the North of Spain, where rain and clouds are common every day, and reduce the use of heating in the winter. The summers are very humid so easy cross ventilation is an important necessity. The interior patio is place for some trees that help to protect the views and the noise between different dwellings.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© David FrutosThe urban facade is solved with a polycarbonate skin located on the front of the continuous terrace, on the first level, instead of polycarbonate, the façade is made of perforated steel sheet. This skin is opened by a sliding system, which solves the relationship of the dwellings with the outside. The second front of the gallery is lined with ceramic tiles of various colors. The system allows a intermediate location between the outside temperature and the internal working climate condition. The interior color of the ceramic is in contrast with the gray skies of the area.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Woolworth Building @ 100 ExhibtionEventFashion Mogul Commissions OMA to Convert Venice PalazzoArchitecture News Share Architects: Amann Canovas Maruri Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAmann Canovas MaruriOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMieresRetailHousingSpainPublished on March 20, 2013Cite: “151 Homes, Shops And Garage In Mieres / Amann Canovas Maruri” 20 Mar 2013.

After Sanad’s original conviction was overturned on appeal, the retrial was initially scheduled to have begun on 13 October.“We condemn this persistence in persecuting Sanad and call for his immediate release,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This military court should dismiss the charges against him. The repeated postponement of the hearings and the refusal to release him on bail are being used to prolong his detention. The original trial was unfair and violated the principles of justice. After its verdict was rightly quashed, the retrial must not be used to repeat the first trial.”Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about Sanad’s state of health. He has been detained for nearly seven months and has been on hunger strike for 57 days. His relatives say they are alarmed about the deterioration in his physical condition and fear he could die. The authorities are still refusing to hospitalize him.Sanad told his brother Mark on 17 October that he intended to boycott the retrial. Neither he, nor his family nor his lawyer went to the military court yesterday for the scheduled start of the new trial. According to his brother, Sanad does not want to participate in “this soap opera that the military has cooked up.”A campaign in support of Sanad as well as campaigns in support of jailed bloggers and conscientious objectors in other countries is available on this website.

I will not stop. Let them detain me. I have no problem with that.” The authorities also allegedly hid drugs in his bag with the apparent aim of charging him with drug trafficking.Mark Sanad said that his brother’s health is worsening, that he has already lost more than 12 kilos in weight after going on hunger strike, and that he is refusing to go to the prison infirmary. Mark added that he feared his brother will not hold out until his appeal, which is due to be heard on 4 October.A peaceful march was staged on 19 September to demand Maikel Nabil Sanad’s release and an end to trials of civilians before military courts. The march started at Cairo’s Tahrir Square.The blogger’s father, Nabil Sanad, has received no reply to the seven letters he has so far sent to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to request his son’s release. He says he will take the Egyptian authorities before the International Court of Justice if his son dies in detention. Reporters Without Borders would encourage such an initiative.—————————-Jailed blogger resumes hunger strike, in critical condition again17 September 2011While the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces threatens to use the state of emergency law against all journalists who “endanger social peace,” the blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad¸ Egypt’s first prison of conscience since the revolution, is still in prison, has reportedly resumed his hunger strike and is in a critical physical condition again.“We urge the Supreme Council to release Sanad and all the other prisoners of conscience at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A security policy involving the jailing of journalists and bloggers convicted by military courts is steadily undermining hopes of a democratic transition in Egypt.”According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Sanad has resumed his hunger strike and is again refusing to drink. In messages to his brother on 13 and 14 September, he reportedly said he was “unable to leave bed now” and suffered “loss of vision” as soon as he stood up.Sanad has also denied telling the prison authorities that he wanted no more visits. “Do not believe so much the army officers or the military judges, because they lie too much,” he wrote. “I am not refusing visits and I strongly need them.” His brother and presidential candidate Bothaina Kamel are among the people who have repeatedly tried to visit him in Cairo’s Al-Marg prison. “I wanted to see (you), but the prison administration were the ones to refuse.”Arrested on 28 March for denouncing human rights violations and the military’s close relationship with the government in his blog (http://www.maikelnabil.com), Sanad was sentenced to three years in prison by a military court on 10 April. He began a hunger strike on 23 August and stopped drinking a week later. He was rushed to the prison infirmary on 3 September.After being hospitalized, Sanad let it be known that he was determined to resume his hunger strike and stop drinking against regardless of the outcome.Reporters Without Borders urges the Supreme Council to free Sanad without delay, so that it is not held responsible for the blogger’s death in detention.

The court must recognize that he was unfairly convicted by a court martial because of his views and his articles.”Sanad’s health is deteriorating steadily as a result of the hunger strike.

first_imgNews Updates[Red Fort Violence] “Second Arrest Prima Facie Illegal, Abuse Of Rule Of Law”: Deep Sidhu Argues As Delhi Court Reserves Order In His Bail Plea In ASI FIR Nupur Thapliyal24 April 2021 1:28 AMShare This – xAs the Delhi Court on Saturday reserved orders in the bail application filed by Deep Sidhu in connection with the second FIR registered by the Archaeological Survey of India alleging damage to the historic monument and vandalism by rioters, Advocate Abhishek Gupta appearing on his behalf argued before the Court that the conduct of the investigating agency for arresting him was prima facie illegal and arbitrary and was a sheer abuse of Rule of Law.During the course of hearing today before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Abhishek Gupta argued at length seeking grant of bail on the following major points: first, both the FIRs were identical and based on similar facts, second, having granted bail in one FIR, bail must be granted in the said FIR also and third, the arrest was illegal, mala fide and arbitrary.On FIRs being Identical and SimilarStarting with the submissions, Gupta submitted before the Court that not only were the contents of the FIRs and allegations similar, but the replies given by the Prosecution were also same as far as dealing with both the cases.”I can show from the ASJ’s order. I will show exactly same words, same sentences which are identical. The premium agency like Delhi Crime Branch, something like this is not acceptable. We are a country governed by Rule of Law.” Gupta argued.Arguing that the two FIRs involves similar Acts and provisions, Gupta submitted that since the sessions court had already dealt with the contents, bail ought to be given in the said FIR also as all the allegations were the subject matter of the earlier bail wherein bail was granted.”Two of the special Acts like PDPA and Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites Act were also invoked in the first FIR. But please look at this FIR. Only one new section from another Act is added which Prevention of Insults to National Honours Act. Under this section also, the maximum punishment is one year. A little detail has been added in the second FIR. Rest, all the allegations and incidents are identical.” Gupta submitted.Conduct of Investigating Agency Prima Facie Arbitrary and IllegalArguing that Sidhu was termed as the primary conspriator by the investigating agency only because he was a popular face, Gupta submitted thus:”He was present at a wrong place, at a wrong time. His only mistake was that he was just there while some people were hoisting some flag. People were raising certain religious slogans but these slogans are similar to any other religious slogans.”Furthermore, Gupta went ahead to submit that the conduct of the investigating agency and the time of arrest effected by them was grossly in violation of Article 21. He submitted: “This is a question I pose to myself and we all must ask ourselves: Why? Why did they arrest me? The time, the event of arrest is grossly illegal. They can’t behave like this. We are governed by Rule of Law. This is making a mockery of the system. This is such an abuse of power. What can be a better case of abuse of power than this? There can be none. The investigating agency cannot justify the time and event of arrest.” Submitting that what cannot be done directly, cannot be done indirectly also, Gupta argued that the investigating agency cannot effect the arrest as they please and that valid justifications have to be given by them.Arguing that the Crime Branch was behaving like emperors, Gupta submitted that “If this is not fraud, what is it then. Why was this arrest effected? This arrest is prima facie arbitrary, illegal, fraudulent and mala fide. It goes against the judgments laid by the Supreme Court. They cannot do what they please, even they have to be within their limits.”Submissions of the ProsecutionDenying the allegations of the FIR being similar and identical, the Public Prosecutor argued before the Court that there was no answer given by the defense as to why they did not go to the Delhi High Court for quashing of the said FIR. PP argued this:”If we go by the factual matrix of the present case, it is very sure that this case was an unfortunate incident and the accused has an active role. We have CDR, and according to the Videos and CDR, his role can be seen. If both offences are committed at the same place, it doesn’t mean we cannot register two FIRs.”Highlighting that Sidhu might tamper with the investigation if granted bail, PP also argued that no answer was given by defense as to when a route was given to them by the Police, why did they chose not to follow it?”Red Fort is an ancient monument. They defaced it, destroyed it. It was a part of a bigger Conspiracy. Case is sensitive in nature so the bail application be rejected.” PP argued.Hearing both the parties at length, the Court reserved the order for Monday.About the FIRDeep Sidhu was arrested again hours in another FIR filed by the Archaeological Survey of India after being granted bail in the FIR pertaining to red fort violence case connection with the violence that broke out during the farmer’s tractor rally on Republic Day.The FIR was registered on the basis of a complaint made by Gunjan Kumar Srivastava, Superintendent Archaeologist alleging that a mob barged inside the Lahore Gate, damaged electrical fittings of illuminated lights, charged towards the Red Fort rampart and forcefully hoisted a flag on the pole where the Hon’ble PM hoists Indian National Flag on independence day.The said FIR has been registered under sec. 147, 148, 149, 153, 452, 34 of IPC along with sec. 25, 27 of Arms Act, Sec. 3, 4 of PDPP Act, Sec. 2 of Prevention of Insults to National Honours Act and Sec. 30A, 30B of Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act.Stating that Red Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Monument which is protected under the provisions of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1958, the FIR alleges that on the Republic Day at around 12:10 PM, about 25 tractors and 200-300 protestors entered Gyanpath area through Netaji Subhas Marg and attempted to push their way into the Red Fort through the Lahori Gate.Grant of Bail to Deep Sidhu in Red Fort Violence FIRWhile granting bail to Sidhu, Additional Sessions Judge Neelofer Abida Perveen observed thus:”The prosecution’s case rests largely and on contents of video recordings and footage available and accessible to all on social media sites in public domain. There is a remote possibility of applicant being able to interfere with the content on such platform.”Bail was granted subject to his furnishing personal bond with two local sureties in the sum of Rs. 30,000/- each to the satisfaction of the Court.Tags#Delhi Court deep sidhu bail Archaeological Survey Of India Red Fort Republic Day #Farmers Protest Next Storylast_img read more

Shining a light on an era

first_imgIn 1854, a young man slipped out of Virginia on a ship to Boston, leaving slavery behind. But his freedom was short-lived. Several months after Anthony Burns arrived, his owner, citing the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 as legal justification, seized him. Burns’ arrest enraged local abolitionists, fueled a deadly riot, and spurred a burgeoning anti-slavery movement.A new production at the A.R.T. developed by director Steven Bogart and members of the A.R.T. Institute, the theater’s graduate training program, shines light on the plight of Burns and the Boston abolitionists who tried to free him.“It was a moment in Massachusetts history where the entire area — Boston, Cambridge, all the way from Worcester to Newburyport — rallied to try to save this man from going back into slavery,” said Bogart, who directs “The Boston Abolitionists Project.” The collaborative work is part of the National Civil War Project, a multiyear collaboration among Harvard, the A.R.T., and several other arts and academic organizations that have joined forces to create theatrical works and educational programs about the Civil War and the issues surrounding it.Bogart’s creative journey with the new play began last fall at a roundtable discussion with Harvard scholars and artists, part of the four-year national project. He also met with Harvard specialists in the field, including Timothy McCarthy, a lecturer on history and literature and the director of the Sexuality, Gender, and Human Rights Program at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, to explore the era’s complexities.“Tim has been really instrumental in sending us in the right direction, suggesting resources and other associations in terms of the historical time period,” said Bogart. “This is the first time I have tried to devise a piece based on a historic event with historic characters, and the idea of connecting with Harvard professors who are experts in the field was really exciting, and absolutely necessary.”The Burns trial is the underlying theme of the production, whose large cast of characters includes a lawyer for the captured man, and prominent abolitionists such as Harriet Jacobs and William Lloyd Garrison. The production also features readings from “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” the anti-slavery novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe that “took the nation by storm and was part of the fuel for the abolitionist movement,” said Bogart.McCarthy, who teaches the general education course “Culture and Belief 49: American Protest Literature from Tom Paine to Tupac” with John Stauffer, chair of the History of American Civilization Program and another consultant on the show, said the experience inspired him to think differently about “how history can come alive.” McCarthy hopes to integrate the theater process into the class, along with a sense of how theater “creates public space for us to engage with and debate matters of great political consequence.”This summer, he’ll also try his hand at playwriting with a work about four prominent female abolitionists.“As historians we piece together fragments from the past and create a story that will resonate with or tantalize or inspire an audience of readers,” said McCarthy. “[This] really challenged me to think about how history comes alive for an audience of viewers.”In many ways, the intensely collaborative process, which included input from Bogart, Harvard professors, and A.R.T. Institute students and staff, mirrored the kind of movement that the creative team sought to dramatize, said McCarthy.“It really reflects the spirit of the abolitionist movement, which was not a movement that was led by one or two prominent people. This was a collective effort that was led over several decades to eradicate slavery.”“The Boston Abolitionists Project” will be performed in the Loeb Experimental Theater at 7:30 p.m. through Friday.last_img read more
