Isa mines.Mined nickel production jumped 21 per cent to a record 16,174 tonnes due to output from its new Rim South mine. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The future’s bright at Wasps

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS NOT FOR FEATUREDEXETER, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 25: Elliott Daly of Wasps during the Aviva Premiership match between Exeter Chiefs and London Wasps at Sandy Park on September 25, 2011 in Exeter, England. (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images) By Jack Yates BETWEEN 2002 and 2009 London Wasps accumulated eight major trophies, including two Heineken Cups and four Premiership titles, and boasted legendary names such as Lawrence Dallaglio, Simon Shaw, Roy Howley and Josh Lewsey to name but a few. But this golden generation has withered away, with many journeying to foreign shores, such as Paul Sackey who has relocated to France and talented fly-half Danny Cipriani, who has been plying his trade in Australia with the Melbourne Rebels, and others retiring after illustrious careers. This huge player turnover has caused severe disruption within the Wasps ranks, culminating in a three-season drought without a trophy, and the club is currently based a mere nine points above relegation favourites, Newcastle. This disastrous season has not been helped by critical injuries to many key players including club captain Tom Rees and top try-scorer Christian Wade alongside a host of other players, and club stalwarts Joe Worsley and Dan Ward-Smith both being forced into retirement alongside Wasps new boy Steve Thompson due to serious injuries. The Wasps situation may appear bleak on the surface, but a revival is occurring at Adams Park.Dai YoungNew coach Dai Young has ushered in a new era of rugby for the Wycombe-based club, overseeing a plethora of new signings looking to add depth to this injury stricken team. New transfers have indeed been made out of necessity, however the quality of these players is astounding, considering the difficulty of obtaining high class players mid-season. The likes of Russian No 8, Victor Gresev and Nambian lock Heinz Koll, as well as a host of other signings add tremendous depth and international experience to an increasingly youthful Wasps side.Further positive signs of a revival were recently announced when the club declared that former Wasps stars Tom Palmer and James Haskell would both return to the club next season. Young was ecstatic at the signing stating: “Bringing the kind of quality in that Tom and James will deliver demonstrates our desire to have a highly competitive squad next season that will see us, I hope, push forward very positively.” With only 2 players currently in the England Elite Player Squad, Joe Simpson and Rob Webber, the latter who will be at Bath next year, it is clear that this influx of first choice England players will only serve the club well in the upcoming seasons. TAGS: Wasps center_img It is therefore evident that this season should be written off as a result of the transition that has occurred within the club. A new coach, coupled with an extensive list of departures and a crippling injury list to integral players has meant that Wasps will again end the season disappointed and trophyless. However, Wasps are likely to survive relegation, partly due to the dire state of affairs at Newcastle, but also due to the resilience and spirit Wasps have shown in recent games, as well as the investment club owner Steve Hayes has pumped into the team, resulting in a club that is simply too good for championship rugby next season. Wasps fans must look to the future, where the grass certainly appears much greener, hopefully resulting in the multitude of new signing linking up with new coach Dai Young as well as the huge depth of young talent at the club, ushering in a return to the heights of the Dallaglio era and finally seeing this iconic club getting its hands on silverware once more.Wasps play Exeter Chiefs at Adams Park on Saturday 18 February, KO 3pm. Click here to get your tickets! Elliot Daly It has been near impossible for Young to implement a strategy of playing an expansive, flowing game utilising the abundance of pace in the Wasps backline, with an injury list as extensive as his. However, this season has seen a number of considerable success stories for the boys in black and gold. Young talents have truly emerged as fantastic prospects for both club and country with the likes of Christian Wade, Billy Vunipola and Elliot Daly all establishing themselves as first team players, presenting a bright future for the boys from North East London.last_img read more

Business commons to begin construction in May 2016

first_imgJessica Ranckhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jessica-ranck/ Jessica Ranckhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jessica-ranck/ Gender gap increases in colleges around the nation ReddIt printThe Neeley School of Business is planning for its next major renovation.Last year, Spencer and Marlene Hays donated $30 million to help build a new business commons for TCU students.Since then, the school’s dean, along with a committee of Neeley employees and Canon Design, has been working to create blueprints for the new and renovated buildings in the business commons, the director of marketing and communications for the Neeley School of Business Jeffrey Waite said.The two-year project is expected to begin construction in May 2016.The construction plan adds two new buildings and remodels Tandy Hall, Dan Rogers Hall and Steve & Sarah Smith Entrepreneurs Hall.The new space is expected to change the way the business school approaches learning and engagement, said O. Homer Erekson, the John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School and professor of managerial economics and strategy.Erekson said the broad idea is that the whole school is connected so students can essentially move from one building to the next.编辑触摸共享全屏制作你自己的了解更多接触图片分享图像…全屏The new buildings will have more space for students to work on group projects, study and hang out with friends.Many professors in the Neeley School said they think the addition of those spaces will help students get a better idea of what the business world will be like.“Once outside the confines of TCU, students will have to interact with colleagues in a variety of settings,” marketing professor Vanessa Shropshire said. “The more chance[s] we give students to intermingle with each other, the better.”Tandy Hall and Dan Rogers Hall will be considered the “core academic building,” Erekson said.The second floor of the connected buildings will be designated for classrooms, while the third floor will be for faculty offices.Many of Neeley’s professors said they think it will be beneficial to have all the staff located in one area.“I love collaborating with other professors and [having faculty offices located near each other] will make it much easier,” Shropshire said.Dan Rogers will also be home to career services and academic advising. It will include a dining option on the first floor to meet the needs of hungry students.Smith Hall will be renovated as part of the last phase of the construction process.The hall will still promote entrepreneurship, but its amenities will be changed to reflect the atmosphere of a working environment.The first floor of Smith will be changed from a place where students relax between classes to an area where they can work, talk with employers or even start up their own student companies, Erekson said.Erekson said Neeley’s goal with the business commons is to make it a place to learn both inside and outside the classroom.Senior marketing major Carly Hirvela said she thinks the new buildings will give students a glimpse of what it’s like to work in their specific field of study before graduating.“I think the atmosphere will help the students learn more about the environments that they will be entering,” Hirvela said.The new building located behind Dan Rogers is yet to be named, but will include additional classroom space for students.Many business students said they are most excited for the outdoor seating that will be located in the middle of the commons because they feel that type of space is currently lacking.“In between classes, there’s really no place to hang out, unless you want to hang out inside Smith, which is kind of crowded,” senior finance major Perry Locke said. “So I think it will be nice to have some place outside with a little more relaxing feel where everyone can congregate.”How administration will accomodate classes and faculty offices during the construction period is still in the planning stages, Waite said.“We will look for classroom space outside of Neeley,” Waite said. “Faculty and staff offices may occupy portable buildings during the construction phase.”The business commons is expected to cost about $100 million, senior finance major and Neeley ambassador Sarah Doherty said.Erekson said the school is still looking for donors to help fund the project and construction may be delayed if sufficient funds are not in order.

Call for special hearings after upsurge in numbers of journalists facing court

first_img New Cyber Crimes Law restricts free expression and targets online activists July 2, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for special hearings after upsurge in numbers of journalists facing court KuwaitMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Kuwait Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information February 23, 2015 Find out more Reporters Without Borders expressed its disquiet at an upsurge in cases being brought against journalists in Kuwait, despite the fact it was the first Gulf state to decriminalise press offences.“The 2006 press law reform profoundly transformed the emirate’s media landscape. We urge the authorities to continue to strengthen the protection of the right to be informed and to inform the public”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“The appointment of special judges at a time of a rising number of disputes, would provide an extra guarantee to journalist defendants”, the organisation added.Fuad al-Hashem, of Kuwaiti daily al-Watan was on 28 May 2008 ordered to pay the equivalent of almost 22,000 euros in damages for defamation as a result of three cases brought by the Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad ben Jassem al-Thani. He had accused the journalist of harming his reputation in his articles dealing with his relations with the state of Israel. Al-Hashem told Reporters Without Borders that he has faced more than 20 proceedings against him, most of them brought by deputies, who accused him of damaging their image with their electorate.“These days Kuwaiti journalists have to take great care and avoid resorting to self-censorship to protect themselves from the intolerance of some politicians who do not accept any criticism”, he said. His appeal has been set for September 2008.In another case, Saad al-Ajimi, correspondent for satellite news channel al-Arabiya, is being sued for “insult” following a defamation case brought by religious leader Hamid al-Ali. The journalist was interviewed by the prosecutor’s office on 8 June 2008, more than five months after the broadcast, on 1st February, of the programme Sina’at al-Mowt (the death industry) about “the history of al-Qaeda in Kuwait”. In reference to the complainant, the journalist had said that members of the movement had met “several religious fundamentalist dignitaries in Kuwait”.Al-Ajimi told Reporters Without Borders that “the number of cases laid against journalists in Kuwait has risen constantly since reform of the press law, which certainly removed the threat of imprisonment for journalists but provided for fines which are far too harsh.”Faisal al-Qinai, Secretary General of the Kuwaiti Journalists’ Association told Reporters Without Borders that scores of journalists had asked for legal assistance to defend themselves at these trials. Such was the case of Ahmed Abderrahman al-Quss, who also works for the daily al-Watan and is facing a defamation case brought by the deputy Ali al-Rashid, who is seeking 100,000 dinars (238,000 euros) in damages. The Kuwait parliament in March 2006 adopted a new press law allowing far greater freedom to the emirates’ journalists. The decriminalisation of press offences however remains limited, since the new law contains numerous exceptions – such as damage to religion – that come under the criminal code. On the other hand the reform has brought to an end the state monopoly on media licensing.

To this, the AG responded, “We have serious statements made by former Judges about Supreme Court having failed democracy. I also have a complete list of former SC Judges making comments about corruption in judiciary.”The AG then continued :”They seek the improvement of administration of justice. This is a case where your Lordships should forgive him (Bhushan) or perhaps warn him. It is not necessary to punish him.” Justice Mishra, with reference to the Supplementary Statement submitted by Bhushan, stated, “We expected something better than this. What can be done if he thinks he has done no wrong.” The AG, at this juncture, referred to a contempt case against Bhushan for his remarks about the AG’s submissions in the CBI Director case was withdrawn after he expressed regret. Accordingly, the AG submitted to the Court that this was a case where the Court could take a “compassionate view” and that the same would be appreciated by the Bar and would befit the status of the Court. The AG further informed the Bench about the several PILs which had been filed by Bhushan for the benefit of people and that the Court should consider his public work. Justice Mishra responded, “What is the point of giving warnings to Bhushan if he himself has no inkling that he has done wrong. You yourself had filed contempt against him, which was withdrawn only after he expressed regret.” The AG suggested to the Court to take Bhushan’s remarks off-the-record and close the case. To this, Justice Mishra said, “How can they be taken off-the-record when Bhushan himself says they are his bonafide belief?” Justice Gavai too stated that 3 days had been given for expressing apology and Bhushan instead filed a Supplementary Statement. The AG then invoked the Arundhati Roy case wherein the Supreme Court had observed that “Our shoulders are broad enough to shrug off”. Accordingly, he suggested the Court to give one more chance to Bhushan to express regret. The Bench then perused the Reply Affidavit which had been filed by Bhushan. Justice Mishra observed, “Can those allegations be construed as defence?” The AG noted, “If there is an expression of regret, and if the Affidavit is withdrawn, perhaps the case can be dropped?” To this, Justice Mishra stated, “How can the Affidavit be withdrawn when they insist that it should be considered?” Justice Mishra noted that a person may have different opinions about a judgement, but the blame could not be attributed to the Judges. The AG responded that Bhushan had not hesitated to state that he also had the greatest of respect for the Court. “In 2009 case, he has expressed regret. Likewise, if he expresses regret in this, that should be the end of this unfortunate case”. Justice Mishra : Your advise is welcome. But he should withdraw his allegations.AG : Yes, he should withdraw his allegations too.#PrashantBhushan #[email protected] #SupremeCourt— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 25, 2020While Justice Mishra welcomed the AG’s advice, he remarked that the allegations should be withdrawn. The AG concurred with this, and noted that he could not submit anything further than this as it was for Dhavan and his client (Bhushan) to submit what they wanted. Accordingly, the Court allowed 30 minutes of time to Dhavan and Bhushan to “think over” the matter and come back with their submissions.

Two lost dogs reunited with family for Christmas thanks to bus driver

first_imgMilwaukee County Transit System(MILWAUKEE) — It’s a Christmas miracle for two dogs in Milwaukee, and they have a bus driver to thank. When a pit bull and Doberman pinscher were seen running in and out of the street last week after somehow getting out of their family’s yard 2 1/2 miles away from home, a bus driver spotted the pair on the road and sprung into action. Jamie Grabowski, a bus driver for the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) and an avid animal lover, spotted the two pups alone on the street around midnight as she was wrapping up her bus route.Concerned about the pair either freezing in the cold or getting hit by a car, she stopped her bus, opened the driver’s side window and called out to them.On the bus surveillance camera, Grabowski heard saying to the dogs, “You need to go home right now … come on, come on inside!” The footage then shows Grabowski opening the door and helping guide the pair onto her bus before contacting MCTS dispatchers to notify them about the four-legged friends.Grabowski sat and played with the dogs until a police officer arrived. He ended up transporting them to the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) and they determined that the “very sweet and playful” pair were in good health. The dogs’ owners are praising Grabowski for her quick thinking and are grateful to have their pups back just in time for Christmas. Grabowski said she was happy that she was in the right place at the right time to help the dogs out.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
