The Springboks impress as they beat the Wallabies in Perth

first_imgSaturday Aug 29, 2009 The Springboks impress as they beat the Wallabies in Perth The Springboks silenced their critics as they produced a powerful running game on their way to a 32-25 win over the Wallabies in Perth on Saturday. This leaves them unbeaten in this years Tri Nations, with one hand on the trophy.While previous tactics have been to kick and chase, the Boks came out firing with great running lines and flat balls, for which they were rewarded with as they scored four tries and picked up a rare bonus point.Two early tries set the South Africans off to a flying start, which the hosts never recovered from, committing far too many handling errors and not taking their opportunities.Despite playing well in patches, the Wallabies have now reached their fourth successive defeat, and their sixth in a row in the Tri Nations, equalling their the 2004-2006 bad patch, which was their worst run of losses in the history of the tournament.The Springboks on the other hand continue to rise, as theyve now shown that they fully justify their number one position in the world, following the British & Irish Lions series win, and four consecutive Tri Nations victories.Bryan Habana scored two well taken tries, while Jaque Fourie sliced through the Wallaby defence to cross for one of his own.Scrumhalf Fourie Du Preez, playing in his 50th Test and controlling the match as well as ever, scored from a quick tap as he caught the home side off guard.With the result a formality, the Wallabies came back to score two late tries to add some respectability to the scoreline. To their credit, they never gave up and while the Boks slipped into defensive mode, the Australians had the better of the second half.Matt Giteau scored two nice tries, and Lachie Turner snuck in near the end the match, making the scoreboard look a whole lot better than it could have, with the score at 22-6 to the visitors at halftime.The All Blacks will have watched intently as their grip on the Tri Nations title loosens. If the Springboks beat the Wallabies in Brisbane next weekend, itll be South Africa who will lift the trophy, capping off a great season so far.

In relation to a lot of research especially interview with the owner, our design intent has been interpreted as a simple but powerful word in Thai ‘Chan’ (Literally means terrace) However, ‘Chan’ back to history of Thailand is incredibly meaningful as connection. As stated, ‘Chan’ connects people with people (Three generation living in the same house) ‘Chan’ links people with nature (Friend of nature) ‘Chan’ joins people with surrounding (Internal space interact with adjacent neighbor while maintaining privacy.)Save this picture!© BeerSingnoiSpace planning has been adapted from traditional Thai residential architecture. The advantages of the spirit of traditional Thai house are to be retained to suit modern lifestyle such as sustainable strategies – the stack effect to move hot air up and out of the home by drawing cool air in through the ground floor (center of the house) – daylighting thru skylight in the middle of the house. This makes an indirect connection with environmentSave this picture!© BeerSingnoiIn order to eliminate theheat gainfrom south, a main staircase in the back of the house acts as the heat barrier as well as the exterior enclosure using double wall system with insulation to prevent heat entering to the living space.Save this picture!© BeerSingnoiThe lower floor holds living room; semi-open to the environment, dining room, kitchen and guest bedroom. Again, there is ‘Chan’ connecting each area altogether with big tree in the middle. The upper floor holds four bedrooms linking by the upper ‘Chan’ and sensing top of tree movement.One of the key elements is the main steel seven meter high entry door connecting and dividing up internal and external spaces with proper natural ventilationand daylighting.

Nationwide indigenous protests threatened by violence, censorship

first_img RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Reporters Without Borders condemns the violence and other forms of intimidation and censorship being used against a campaign of peaceful demonstrations, called a Minga, that indigenous groups are currently waging in many parts of Colombia to defend their rights.In one of the latest instances, the home of Daniel Maestre Villazón, a community journalist and Minga coordinator in the northern department of César, was burgled on 21 October and his laptops and computer hard disks were stolen.Three indigenous journalists were physically attacked by riot police in the southwestern department of Cauca on 17 October, while a paramilitary group called the “Rastrojos” circulated a leaflet on 15 October threatening community leaders and journalists participating in the Minga.“Whenever a Minga is staged, indigenous groups and their news media are the targets of intimidation and violence with the clear aim of censoring their message,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This situation is similar to what many community news media suffer on a smaller scale every day, especially in war zones, where they are exposed to pressure from three sides – from the army, the paramilitaries and the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).“The survival of community media is vital for informing communities and making their views heard. It is also vital for the safety of those that are isolated and in constant danger. The Mingas play a key role in the public debate and in the expression of constitutional rights and freedoms, and attacks on them should be punished accordingly, regardless of where the attacks come from.”José Vicente Otero, the spokesman of the Cauca Indigenous Regional Council (CRIC), said: “The Minga is a campaign of social mobilization around the key demands of Colombia’s indigenous peoples, above all, territorial autonomy. It is a communication event that is also addressed at the government, with the aim of reaching agreements in a peaceful manner.” Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en He said the physical violence used by riot police against the indigenous community journalists Adolfo Conejo Sanchez, Dora Muñoz and Enrique Quintero was indicative of a continuing tendency on the part of the authorities to treat indigenous demonstrations as acts of subversion and to try to restrict the news coverage they receive.“Our journalists provide the indigenous movement with an extremely important service, because we cannot count on the traditional media,” Otero said. “Unfortunately, recognition of community media is a real problem in Colombia. The lack of official accreditation seems to facilitate attacks on journalists and the seizure of their equipment by police with complete impunity.”Indigenous community media are regarded as “military targets” by armed groups such as the “Rastrojos.” These media lead the way in coverage of the issue of land confiscated by the paramilitaries during the civil war and are constantly exposed to the threat of paramilitary violence.“We will not let ourselves be intimidated,” Otero added. “We will continue to provide coverage of what the indigenous peoples experience during and after the Minga.”Reporters Without Borders continued to provide assistance to CRIC-affiliated community radio stations in 2013, funding the purchase of recording equipment for their journalists.

Middle school the niche for new Bonham principal

first_img TAGS  WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Local News New Bonham Middle School principal Mitch Gerig stands outside of Bonham. After trying his hand at a couple of different careers, Mitch Gerig settled on education and that’s where he plans to stay. Gerig was recently named principal at Bonham Middle School. This is his 21st year with Ector County Independent School District. A Permian High School graduate, he earned a business and finance degree from the University of Texas Permian Basin and a master’s in educational administration from the University of North Texas. He got his alternative certification from Region 18 Education Service Center and started off as an early childhood teacher. Currently, he is working toward doctorate in educational administration online from Concordia University. “I actually attended … school here when it was a junior high,” Gerig said of Bonham. “My three daughters also attended here as well, so it’s kind of neat to come back. I was also an AP (assistant principal) here for four years,” Gerig said. He was a firefighter for a year and then decided to go back to school. With his degree in business and finance, he ended up working as a claims representative for an insurance company in Richardson, but found that wasn’t for him. “I wanted to find something where I could help people and I found out doing that I couldn’t really do what I wanted to do. It wasn’t really the place to be to try to help others,” Gerig said. Since his mother and sister were teachers, Gerig said he decided education was the path he would take. Middle school appears to be his niche. “… I’ve gotten accustomed to working with this age group. I kind of understand where they’re coming from. I know they’re going through a lot of changes. Even from day to day. … I just feel like they need a lot of guidance and that’s where I feel my (skills) are …,” Gerig said. Bonham is projected to have about 1,100 students next year and is supposed to have 69 teachers and an assistant principal at every grade level. Gerig said he is about 29 teachers short and seeking an assistant principal. He previously was an assistant principal at Bonham and associate principal at Ector Middle School and made the transition to Ector College Prep Success Academy, an in-district charter campus. He plans to use some of the same strategies used at Ector at Bonham. “I know in our district we’re trying to do everything we can to improve scores and improve education with our kids and I think we need to think out of the box. I think what we were doing at Ector is that, especially providing time for intervention during the school day, not trying to get them up here after school or before school because you can’t rely on that,” Gerig said. “They’re there, so we’re able to do the intervention during that time period after school for an hour and a half. We also help to support the teachers with the discipline center. We have 10 or 11 employees that kind of help with the smaller things, smaller issues. They go ahead and assign lunch detention, after-school detention or whatever it may be. Then that frees the assistant principals to deal with … more serious issues. It also frees the time for them to be in the classroom and working with teachers,” he added. Being in a position to be of service to others is why Gerig wanted to become a principal, but he added that teaching is the same way. “We’re here to do what’s best for kids and hopefully have a positive impact on their lives,” he said. One of the most important things that should be focused on is developing relationships with students. “When you deal with kids that come from poverty … you have to develop trust with them, and if they don’t trust you, they’re not going to work for you. I think that’s one of the most important things I want to for our staff to focus on is doing that. If you can do that, it’s going to set up an environment to where you can have success academically,” Gerig said. He also plans to set high expectations for students, regardless of their background. “I think it’s a disservice if you don’t. They might come to you a grade level or two below in reading, but that doesn’t mean you’re not going to still have high expectations for them because you have to and so that’s important …,” Gerig said. Collaboration among teachers through professional learning communities also is going to help improve scores, and the district’s middle school redesign sets time aside for that. Gerig replaces James Ramage as Bonham principal. Ramage will be principal at Falcon Early College High School. Ramage said he and Gerig started together at Bonham in 2007 with Ramage as principal and Gerig as assistant principal. “We dove in head first. We were the third group in three years. I was the third principal, so we really had to put our foot down on discipline and stuff like that,” Ramage said. “By the next year, we made some significant changes. Working together that second year was much, much better,” Ramage said. He added that Gerig will be a good fit as principal. “Mitch will do great. I’m very excited for him. He’ll do a great job here. He’s very deserving and I’m looking forward to the success he has,” Ramage said. Gerig is married to Rachel Gerig, the instructional services director at Odessa High School.

Justice BP Colabawalla heard the commercial suit filed by HUL via video conferencing after the matter was mentioned by plaintiff’s counsel Advocate Hiren Kamod pressing for urgency. The Court prima facie noted that the statements made on behalf of the defendant Emami in newspapers amount to a threat against HUL and no prejudice would be caused to Emami if limited relief is granted. HUL filed the suit under Section 142 of the Trade Marks Act, 1999 seeking injunction to restrain Emami from issuing “groundless threats” to the plaintiff in respect of the use of its trademark ‘Glow & Handsome’. Advocate Hiren Kamod submitted that on September 7, 2018, after conducting a search in the Register of Trademarks, the plaintiff independently and honestly coined and adopted the trade marks ‘Glow & Lovely’ and ‘Glow & Handsome’ in respect of its skin care products. In order to secure statutory rights in the two marks, HUL filed multiclass applications on September 7, 2018 on proposed to be used basis. Initially, the Registrar of Trademarks raised an objection under Section 9(1)(a) of the Trade Marks Act, 1999 in his preliminary examination report dated October 10, 2018 in respect of the plaintiff’s mark ‘Glow & Handsome’. Moreover, in an order dated July 26, 2019, the Registrar of Trademarks refused registration of the HUL’s mark ‘Glow & Handsome’. An appeal was filed against the said decision of the Registrar of Trademarks before the Intellectual Property Appellate Board, which is pending. In June 2020, HUL filed another set of trade mark applications seeking registrations of the trade mark labels and respectively on proposed to be used basis. Thereafter, on July 2, 2020, HUL made an official announcement that its trademark/brand ‘Fair & Lovely’ is rebranded as ‘Glow & Lovely’ for its skin care range of products and the plaintiff’s skin care range of FAIR & LOVELY products for men will be called as ‘Glow & Handsome’. HUL’s counsel told the Court that the plaintiff was granted its FDA License to manufacture its skin care products under the mark ‘Glow & Handsome’ on July 3, 2020. Thereafter, HUL immediately issued commercial advertisements in respect of its products bearing the trademark ‘Glow & Handsome’ not only on social media but also in the newspapers, including the first page of the Economic Times and Business Line News Paper on July 4, 2020. Furthermore, immediately after the plaintiff made the announcement on July 2, the defendant gave statements in various newspapers threatening to adopt legal action against HUL for violating their alleged rights in its mark ‘Emami Glow & Handsome’. Statements issued by the defendant and published in various online and print media are unjustifiable and groundless within the meaning of Section 142 of the Trade Marks Act, 1999. The defendant’s claim of proprietorship over the marks ‘Glow & Handsome’/ ‘Emami Glow & Handsome’ is false and misconceived. The plaintiff is the prior adopter and user of the trade mark ‘Glow & Handsome’, Adv Kamod argued. After conclusion of Kamod’s submissions, Court observed- “Prima facie it does appear that having filed its trade mark application in September 2018 and subsequently on 25th June 2020 for the mark ‘Glow & Handsome’, plaintiff is the prior adopter of the said mark. Further, from a perusal of the newspaper cutting, it prima facie appears that the Plaintiff has already started commercial advertisements in respect of the trade mark ‘Glow & Handsome’. It prima facie appears that the Defendant has adopted the ‘Glow & Handsome’ mark for the first time on 25th June 2020 and has not commercially used it till date. The statements made by the Defendant and published in various newspapers annexed to the Plaint do amount to a threat, however, whether they are unlawful or groundless, that is something that will have to be decided after hearing both the sides. Today, the Plaintiff is pressing for a limited relief that the Defendant should give at least 7 clear days prior written notice to the Plaintiff before initiating any legal proceedings in any court or claiming any interim or ad-interim reliefs against the Plaintiff as threatened in the statements issued / made on behalf of the defendant against the plaintiff’s use of the trademark ‘Glow & Handsome’. Considering the facts and circumstances of the present case, I believe that no harm or prejudice would be caused to the Defendant if the said limited relief is granted.” Next date of hearing in the matter is July 27.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

The contempt petition relates to Kotia group of villages which was a subject matter of an original suit filed by Orissa(as it was called then) in 1968 against the undivided state of Andhra Pradesh. In 2006, the Supreme Court dismissed the suit as non-maintainable under Article 131 of the Constitution. However, the Court recorded in the order passed on March 30, 2006, an earlier undertaking given by both the states in 1968 to maintain status quo with respect to the dispute. The Naveen Patnaik-led government of Odisha now alleges that Andhra Pradesh has violated this status quo order, which was passed on the basis of consent of both the parties. The contempt petition, filed through Advocate Sibo Sankar Mishra, states that while issuing notification for local body election in Vizianagaram district last year, the Andhra Government “clandestinely roped in” three villages from the Kotia group of villages falling within Koraput district of Odisha and have included them in Vizianagaram district with new names. It is alleged that these notifications, issued on March 5, 2020 by the government under YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, were kept a “dead secret”. Thus, the allegation is that Andhra Pradesh has taken over three grama panchayats belonging to Odisha and have renamed them and added them to AP by violating the status quo order of the Supreme Court. It is further alleged that Andhra Pradesh is going to hold elections in these new grama panchayats which have been snatched from Odisha. It is stated that the Odisha government got to know about the move of Andhra Pradesh to hold local body elections in these three villages only on February 2, when the local Tehsildar went for a field visit in Kotiya group of villages. Odisha claims in the petition that these villages have always been its part administratively and that it has undertaken several developmental activities in the region over the years. It is stated that elections for the Parliament, State Assembly and local bodies have been taking place in these villages since inception. There has been no impediment whatsoever legally or otherwise in conducting election either to the assembly, parliament or for the local body at any point in time created by the state of Andhra Pradesh and this is for the first time that the election have been sought to be held in the disputed villages by the AP Government. The petition refers to the Electoral Rolls prepared by the Election Commission of India to argue that the voters of these villages fall within Koraput Constituency of Odisha. “…it is abundantly clear that the state of Orissa have been administrating continuously the villages in subject apart from electing representatives for local bodies and assembly and parliamentary constituency. Therefore the attempt on the part of the contemnor to conduct election in the newly self-named three villages pertaining to the territory of petitioner state is nothing but a willful attempt to sabotage the dictum of this Hon’ble Court”, the petition states. The petition urges the Court to issue contempt notice to Dr Mude Hari Jawaharlal IAS (Collector and District Election Authority, Vizianagaram), Adityanath Das IAS(Chief Secretary, AP) and Dr N Ramesh Kumar IAS(State Election Commissioner) for alleged violation of the order passed by the Supreme Court on March 30, 2006 which made absolute the undertaking given by both states in 1968 to maintain status quo over the Kotiya group of villages.
