Controversy as late England try against All Blacks ruled out by TMOThe debate will rage on. Sam Underhill looked to have snatched victory for England with a fine finish in the closing stages of this showdown with the All Blacks, but match TMO Marius Jonker adjudged that Courtney Lawes – who charged down New Zealand scrum-half TJ Peranara – was offside when he made contact with the ball. New Zealand went on to win 16-15. So there you go clear as mud, as we all weigh in on the big decision…After the match Eddie Jones diplomatically said: “Sometimes the game loves you and sometimes it doesn’t” of the decision – eluding to last week when match officials ruled that a contentious, match-saving tackle by Farrell at the very end of the match was not illegal.Related: Farrell tackle divides opinionIf you’re quick you can let us go know what you think of the final decision through this Twitter poll on our page. This all comes at a time when World Rugby have passed down a directive for referees to use TMOs less. So you know this incident will generate a lot of chatter for days to come. Hey, there have certainly been no dull moments with this England team so far in November!England face Eddie Jones’s former charges Japan at Twickenham next week, with kick-off at 3pm.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest rugby news. As England fly-half Owen Farrell waited to take the conversion, the match officials made the call that Northampton bruiser was not behind the hindmost foot of the ruck and that it would all come back to an All Blacks penalty.Related: Sam Underhill announces his arrival on the big stageAs you can imagine, with margins so fine, there was a big split in public opinion on the match officials’ call. The key moment: Courtney Lawes charges down TJ Perenara LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The fine finish from Bath flanker Sam Underhill was chopped off after Courtney Lawes was adjudged to be offside Definitely offside.

In 2014 domestic charities received nearly €1.6 million while overseas charities got just under €1 million.The pattern of more support for local charities is also reflected in figures for 2013, although the charity accounts note that the directors are reviewing giving in Ireland and overseas. In Ireland the Foundation is known to be a major backer of Social Entrepreneurs Ireland with whom it shares a website.Mr O’Brien has supported projects in Haiti, particularly after the earthquake of 2010. He is Chairman of the Haiti Action Network, which coordinates the activities of approximately 80 support organisations in Haiti.Both Denis O’Brien’s father, Denis senior, and his mother, Iris, are directors of the Foundation.The Iris O’Brien Foundation has no paid staff and very modest expenditure of just under €5,000. Over €162,000 of Foundation funds were not distributed in 2014.Mr O’Brien’s wealth is estimated at €4.6 billion by the Sunday Times and as well as considerable worldwide interests in telecoms he is a major shareholder in Irish media.
We live in a world where there are oppressors and there are the oppressed.Inevitably, those who are oppressed and exploited will rise up and fight for liberation, will try to get the boot of their oppressor off their backs.Right now the small country of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is trying to keep from being crushed by the immense force deployed by U.S. “capitalist democracy.”What should we, who live in this most powerful imperialist country in the world, do when the DPRK decides it needs a nuclear deterrent to keep the U.S. from trying to overthrow its government?Because that’s what the world has seen the Pentagon do to Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and is still trying to do to Syria.Some governments as well as peace groups are calling on the U.S. to step back from its threats to attack the DPRK. But they are also saying the north Koreans should “freeze” their nuclear weapons program.If the DPRK were to agree, would they guarantee its safety? What if the U.S. attacked anyway? What would they say — “Sorry”?War is very, very real to the Koreans. They don’t need to be lectured about its horrors. Some 5 million died during the Korean War, most at the hands of U.S. forces.It has taken them years to rebuild their country, not only because of all the devastation but also because of continued efforts by the U.S. imperialists to ruin their economy through sanctions and other measures.It is the right of oppressed people to choose the form of their struggle. As the Black Panthers put it, they have the right to resist “by any means necessary.” It is up to the oppressed to decide what tactic is best suited to their conditions. Those who come from the oppressor nation must not dictate how it should be done.And the same is true on the international arena. If the people of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have decided that the only way they’ll be safe from another U.S. attack is to have a nuclear deterrent, the best thing we in the U.S. can do is try to make sure that such an attack by the U.S. never happens.Those of us who live “in the belly of the beast” cannot put conditions on those living in countries oppressed by imperialism. Our job is to defend their right to liberate themselves.We need to explain to our fellow workers how U.S. foreign policy, including the war machine, is crafted to set up the superexploitation of workers in other countries. The billionaires who run Washington, including Trump and his cronies, can then reap untold profits from war industries and by cutting wages to the bone for workers here.We need to explain how class oppression, where the bosses exploit workers and small farmers across the world, is interlinked with national oppression under U.S. imperialism. Racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia — all are ideological tools used to justify the brutal subjugation and robbery of whole peoples. This is true of the oppression of people of color inside the United States as well as whole nations abroad.Workers have a way to fight back. It’s called solidarity. We can rid the world of oppression and exploitation, but only if we realize our own strength by rejecting every form of bigotry and uniting with all those fighting for liberation from capitalism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn March 21, 2017 1,363 Views Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe On Tuesday, the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Financial Regulations held a hearing on the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The hearing was aptly titled “The CFPB’s Unconstitutional Design.” Subcommittee Chairwoman Ann Wagner’s opening statement highlighted the problems with the CFPB that she and the other Republican members see as representative of Washington as a whole.Wagner stated that the committee has already held five hearings regarding discrimination with the CFPB. Additionally, the committee looked at ways in which the bureau may be restructured in order to make the Bureau more Constitutional and more accountable.“For the past eight years, the American people under the Obama administration have grown complacent with the unchecked power emanating from Washington and its complete disregard for the Constitution. From healthcare, to energy, to financial services, Washington has worked to plan every aspect of your life and decide what’s best for you,” said Wagner. “Now, more than ever, we have a new obligation to examine the checks and balances of our federal government and ensure that our constitution is reflected by it. It’s time to bring accountability back to Washington for we the people. Nothing embodies the Washington knows best mindset than the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.”The ongoing case of the CFPB vs. PHH Corp., in which PHH Corp accused the Bureau of abuses of power, was at the center of the hearing. Congressman Al Green stated that the abuser of power was not actually the CFPB, but the republican party for being so one sided in the litigations.“[Republicans are] taking one side, the side of a mortgage company that has been accused of ripping off Americans,” Green said. “It’s a shameful and disgraceful circumstance that we find ourselves in today.”The Hon. Ted Olson, serving as lead counsel in the PHH vs. CFPB, defended PHH. Referring to the CFPB, Olson said “However tempting it might be to invent new and complex government structures in the interest of accomplishing some presumed efficiency, we abandon the carefully calibrated structure of the Constitution at our peril.”Chief Counsel Brianne Gorod of the Constitution Accountability Center, explained why she believed the attacks against the CFPB were “wholly without merit.” According to Gorod, the Bureau’s single director is not a factor to consider when looking at if the president can and should remove the CFPB Director. The single director, instead of a multi-member commission is a “distinction without a difference.”“The question under Supreme Court case law is whether the removal provision impedes the president’s ability to perform his constitutional duty, and no plausible argument can be made that leadership by a mullti-member body would enhance the president’s ability to ensure faithful execution of the laws.”“If the Bureau’s leadership structure had any significance to the constitutional question, this factor would way in favor of a single director, because a multi-member board serving staggered terms is, if anything, less accountable to the president.”View the entire hearing here.

CoreLogic HOUSING mortgage wildfires 2017-10-11 Nicole Casperson October 11, 2017 1,484 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago As California’s raging wildfires continue to move, CoreLogic released a hazard risk analysis discovering the total number of homes at risk for damages, along with the combined reconstruction cost values, which could result in an estimated $65 billion.The analysis was calculated analyzing homes in the three Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) where the five fires are active, including wildfires Patrick, Atlas, and Tubbs in Napa, and Nuns and Pocket in Santa Rosa.The risk level is based on the level of susceptibility to wildfire damage. CoreLogic’s analysis also includes “risk associated due to the property’s location and close proximity to other high-risk properties or areas.”A total of 172,117 homes are at some level of risk from the wildfires in the Napa and Santa Rosa metropolitan areas, the data found. In addition, a total of “9.1 million homes with a combined reconstruction cost value (RCV) of $3.1 trillion is at some level of risk from wildfires in California.”Of the total homes at risk, 11,058— representing 6 percent—have an estimated RCV of more than $5 billion, and are at significant risk of damage falling in the high and extreme risk categories, according to the data.Meanwhile, 94 percent of homes are at low or moderate risk of damage. The report reveals to remain cautious—although the majority of homes are at the lower and moderate risk levels, these wildfires can “easily expand to nearby properties and cause significant damage even if a property is not considered high risk in its own right.”Source: CoreLogic Wildfire Risk Score analysisThe report notes that this analysis represents the total and maximum risk from the disasters.

The appellant had challenged the same on various grounds.The respondents had filed a counter affidavit and produced the detention record before the learned Single Judge, however, the learned Single Judge dismissed the Habeas Corpus Petition and upheld the detention order passed by the respondent No. 2.The appellant further preferred the instant appeal on the various grounds as narrated in the memo of appeal.Contentions Raised before the Court and Court’s ObservationThe First contention of the appellant – He was not furnished the requisite material relied upon by the detaining authority while passing the detention order.Court’s Observation – The detention record contains the receipt duly signed by the appellant in English. It reveals that the appellant was supplied with the grounds of the detention along with all the documents annexed with the grounds of detention relied upon by the detaining authority.The Second contention of the appellant – The appellant was not made to understand the grounds of detention in the language, which he understands because the detention order was in English and the appellant was conversant with only Kashmiri or Urdu language.Court’s Observation – A perusal of the detention record reveals that the documents were read over and explained to the appellant in Urdu language, which he fully understood, and in acknowledgement thereof, he has signed the receipt in English, as such, there is no substance in the contention of the appellant.The Third contention raised by the appellant – There was a delay in passing the detention order as the last FIR was registered against the petitioner in December, 2017, whereas the detention order was passed in November 2018.Court’s Observation – The perusal of grounds of detention would reveal that detention order has been passed not only on the ground that two FIRs were registered against the appellant.In the grounds of detention, besides these two FIRs, it is specifically mentioned that the appellant is an over ground worker of Lashkar-e-Toiba outfit and has been found to be involved in providing shelter and other logistic supports to the militants in order to carry out attacks on civilians and security forces.So the Court noted that the contention that there is a delay in passing the detention order is also not tenable as the cause for detaining the appellant is continuous.The fourth ground raised by the appellant – He was not informed of his right to make representation.Court’s Observation – A perusal of the detention order along with accompanying documents annexed with the petition clearly reveal that the appellant was informed of his right to make representation to the District Magistrate Kulgam within 12 days of passing of this order.The receipt duly signed by the appellant would establish that he was informed of his right to make representation to the Government against his detention, if so desired.Fifth Contention – What were the compelling circumstances which necessitated him to pass the detention order?Another contention raised was that the detaining authority had not spelt out in the detention order about the compelling circumstances which necessitated him to pass the detention order when the appellant was already in custody.Court’s Observation – The Court noted that firstly, the order of detention must demonstrate awareness of the detaining Authority about the custody of the detenue and secondly that the detaining Authority must be further satisfied that the detenue is likely to be released from custody and nature of the activities of the detenue indicate that if he is released, he is likely to indulge in such prejudicial activities.The Court noted that the Single Judge, though, has discussed the appellant being in custody at the time of passing of detention order but has not dealt with this issue in the right perspective.Further, the Court was of the view that on this ground only the appeal deserves to be allowed.However, before parting with the order, the Court observed,”Due to the callous approach of the detaining Authorities in passing such orders, the whole purpose of the Preventive laws is getting defeated. Either the detaining Authorities are not aware of the requirements of law or they are dealing with the issues of preventive detention very casually. Be that as it may, the time has come when the detaining Authorities must be imparted proper training about the requirements of the law in passing the detention order so as to ensure that such orders are not set aside on technical grounds.”(emphasis supplied)The Registrar Judicial of the bench was directed to send copies of the judgment to the Chief Secretary, Commissioner/Secretary, Department of Home, and Law Secretary, Union Territory of J&K for compliance through email.Notably, it was made clear that any such slackness in future may invite imposition of personal cost on the officer concerned.Case Details:Case Title: Sartaj Ahmad Allie v.

vchal/iStock(NEW YORK) — Over 1.5 billion people across the globe — more than one-fifth of the world’s population — have been ordered or urged to stay home amid a deadly pandemic of the novel coronavirus, which the World Health Organization has warned “is accelerating.”The new respiratory virus, known officially as COVID-19, has killed more than 17,200 people worldwide since emerging in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December.There are more than 395,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19 across the globe, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.With more than 46,000 diagnosed cases, the U.S. has the third-highest national total behind Italy and China.The virus has spread to every state as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, claiming the lives of at least 591 people in the U.S.Here’s how the news is developing today. All times Eastern. Please refresh this page for updates.11:20 a.m.: Virus moving like a ‘bullet train’ through New YorkIn New York state, the “rate of new infections is doubling about every three days,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned Tuesday, and instead of the curve flattening, “the curve is actually increasing.”Cuomo described the virus moving at first as a “freight train,” but now speeding like a “bullet train.”New York now has over 25,000 diagnosed cases, he said.The state has “exhausted every option” to combat the spread, Cuomo said, by closing businesses, increasing testing and reducing street density.Cuomo said New York now must dramatically increase its hospital capacity very quickly.The greatest critical need are ventilators which “will make the difference between life and death,” Cuomo said.The state has procured about 7,000 ventilators and needs 30,000 more at a minimum, he said.11:00 a.m.: India going on lockdownIndia’s prime minister decreed Tuesday that the country of 1.3 billion will go on lockdown for 21 days.10:02 a.m.: Detroit police dispatcher, 38, dies from coronavirusA 38-year-old Detroit police dispatcher has died from COVID-19, reported ABC Detroit affiliate WXYZ.There are at least eight confirmed coronavirus cases within the police department, prompting more than 200 officers to self-quarantine, according to WXYZ.9:42 a.m. Pandemic could cost airlines more than $250 billionThe airline industry could take a hit of more than $250 billion as a result of the steep decline in demand and government travel restrictions amid the COVID-19 outbreak, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). “Without immediate government relief measures, there will not be an industry left standing,” IATA’s Director General and CEO Alexandre de Juniac warned.8:51 a.m. Japan announces Tokyo Olympics will be postponed until 2021Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the International Olympic Committee have agreed that the upcoming Tokyo Olympics “will be held by the summer of 2021,” the prime minister’s office announced Tuesday. “I proposed to postpone for about a year and president Bach responded with 100% agreement,” Abe told reporters in Tokyo, referring to Thomas Bach, head of the International Olympic Committee.The Olympics were originally slated to kick off in Tokyo on July 24, but there has been mounting pressure for organizers to postpone or cancel them due to the coronavirus pandemic. The International Olympic Committee’s executive board on Sunday said it would assess the worldwide situation over the next four weeks and make a decision that could include the scenario of postponing the Games. The board, however, emphasized that it has no current plans to outright cancel the 2020 Summer Olympics as such a scenario “would not solve any of the problems or help anybody.” 8:28 a.m. Sen. Klobuchar says husband remains hospitalized on oxygenSen. Amy Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat who recently dropped out of the 2020 presidential race, said her husband, John Bessler, remains hospitalized and on oxygen support after testing positive for the novel coronavirus. “The reason he was hospitalized is he had pneumonia. He was coughing up blood and his oxygen levels were dangerously low, so he’s been there for a few days now,” Klobuchar told ABC News in an interview Tuesday on Good Morning America.“He got a test last Wednesday and we didn’t get the results until yesterday,” she added. “That’s the story of a lot of people, and I think one of the things I want to say is a lot of Americans have this and worse going on, and one of the hardest things about this disease is you can’t go and visit your loved one. As much as I love being on your show, I would rather be there with him right now and I can’t do that.”Klobuchar said her husband, who is 52, has no preexisting conditions and was “very healthy” prior to falling ill with the virus.” “We don’t know how he got it and no one around us got it,” she added. “As far as we know, he didn’t infect anyone else.” Klobuchar’s said her husband began feeling sick with what felt like a cold about 12 days ago and immediately quarantined himself inside their apartment. Bessler stayed put until he started coughing up blood and was hospitalized, she said. Klobuchar said she hasn’t been tested because she had not come into contact with her husband in the last 14 days and hasn’t shown any symptoms. “Why would I get a test when other people who are getting sick aren’t getting tests? That’s how I approached it, I’m going to be treated like everyone else,” she said. “I think that’s what everyone has to do right now.”7:44 a.m. FEMA ‘absolutely ready’ to use Defense Production ActFederal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Peter Gaynor said Tuesday the agency is “absolutely ready” to use the Defense Production Act, as health care workers across the nation sound the alarm over dwindling supplies needed in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week invoking the 1950 wartime law, which requires private companies to prioritize any product orders from the federal government over others. But the government has apparently yet to make any orders for medical supplies, such as personal protective equipment. “We just want to be careful that we don’t do anything to put it out of balance and counter some other positive efforts that we see,” Gaynor told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview Tuesday on Good Morning America.“We will use it, I have no doubt about it,” Gaynor added. “But right now we’re focused on getting those critical items to those states most in need. What I say to all governors out there, if you find a source, go buy it. FEMA will reimburse you.”Stephanopoulos argued that governors are actually calling on the federal government to use the Defense Production Act now because states are competing with each other for supplies. Gaynor said they are “ready to take action on all of that” but are also “trying to keep the system in balance.” “We don’t want the federal government scooping up everything,” Gaynor added. “We want to make sure that there’s enough capacity that governors and mayors around the country can order on their own, so it’s a delicate balance.” “What the governors are saying is that the federal government should scoop it up and distribute it to the states,” Stephanopoulos responded, “and by forcing them to compete with each other, it’s driving the price and hurting their ability to get what they need.” “We’re trying to identify sources around the globe. If it’s in China, we’re ready to fly it back to the United States today,” Gaynor said. “Again, we’re focused on making sure that those governors that are most critical in need, no matter where it comes from, the federal government or another source directly, we are enabling that today.”7:28 a.m. Spain reports over 500 deaths in past 24 hoursSpain’s health ministry on Tuesday reported 514 deaths from the novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours.The country’s death toll from the COVID-19 virus is now at 2,696.

Ocean City and the Ocean City Exchange Club announced Thursday that the Halloween Parade will be canceled for 2020. The 73rd annual event had been scheduled for Oct. 29.“With N.J. Governor Phil Murphy’s strict prohibition on mass gatherings unlikely to be lifted any time soon and with so much advanced planning necessary for event participants and organizers, making the call now is the only safe decision,” Mayor Jay Gillian said.The Exchange Club of Ocean City is planning to bring back the Halloween Parade in 2021, Parade Chairman Jeff Shirk said.“Having enjoyed running this parade for the past 20 years, it’s obviously disappointing not to be able to continue this wonderful community tradition in 2020,” Shirk said. “But we also understand it’s better to be cautious in order to protect the health of the thousands of parade spectators, participants and volunteers. The Exchange Club of Ocean City will look forward to coming back strong next year with the 2021 edition of this highly anticipated family fall event.”The city is awaiting the release of protocols from the state for safe trick-or-treating on Oct. 31. The Halloween Parade normally attracts thousands of spectators with its procession of spooky floats and costumed characters.
Greensky Bluegrass and friends delivered a weekend for the ages at their 2017 Hoxeyville Music Festival headlining gig, and the lucky fans in attendance are still reeling from almost-seven hours of high-energy bluegrass mayhem across Greensky’s four sets. Luckily for the boys in the band, Greensky had some friends on the lineup—like jamgrass pioneer Sam Bush, flat-picking superhero Larry Keel, Fruition‘s own Jay Cobb Anderson, and the enigmatic Mr. Jimmy—to help fight exhaustion.After a last-minute cancellation from soulful superstar Charles Bradley due to health concerns, Greensky managed to sneak a fourth set onto their Saturday schedule this past weekend. That simple gesture was a perfect example of how Greensky has come to own Hoxeyville in the eyes of most everyone on the grounds, though that ownership was never truly in question, mind you. After eleven appearances over the fifteen years of Hoxeyville’s existence, Greensky Bluegrass has risen to the exalted rank of “Festival Ambassadors,” with their shows at this humble Michigan farm becoming the stuff of legend for followers and supporters of the band.We’re hard at work making videos and writing the tales of the weekend, but we thought we would go ahead and put together a collection of Greensky Bluegrass’s wonderful set of guest stars from the Hoxeyville Music Festival to tide you over. First up, Sam Bush helped Anders Beck with eight words he really loves saying.“The Four” > “Bringing In The Georgia Mail” The skies opened up during Friday night’s Greensky set as Larry Keel sat in and wrecked things. When the rains came, the band didn’t stop—even when their various pedal boards were getting drenched. After their tune ended and they stepped out of the onslaught, Dave Bruzza, Larry, and the Sam Bush Band banjo wizard Stephen Mojen kept the party going almost acoustic style. Check out the fun below!“Guitarmageddon”Fruition and Greensky Bluegrass have a mutual love affair going that spilled over to the Greensky set on Saturday night. Guitarist Jay Cobb Anderson joined Greensky for a couple of passionate covers, including a rocking take on the Roling Stones’ classic “Jumpin’ Jack Flash!”“Fixin’ To Ruin”“Jumpin’ Jack Flash”Rayland Baxter and his trio brought a strong rock sensibility to the primarily Americana and roots line up at Hoxeyville on Saturday. After touring with Greensky multiple times Paul Hoffman and Baxter’s keyboardist realized a connection both had totally forgotten. Check out the story and the fun take on a snarky Greensky classic below:“I’d Probably Kill You”After all the fun of the sit-ins, we thought we would sneak in one song that waas just plain fun. Check out Greensky’s take on the Rod Stewart’s ode to youth, “Young Turks”, below.“Young Turks”
