Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify For RWC 2019 Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify… Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifying Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify For RWC 2019 Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifying The eligibility of Belgium and Romania players has been called into question as Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifying controversy continues Rugby World Cup 2019: Match schedule announced Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup… Eligibility controversy in World Cup 2019 qualifyingThe Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifying controversy has taken yet more turns in recent days, with the eligibility of players fielded by Belgium and Romania during the Rugby Europe Championship called into question.First, Germany coach Pablo Lemoine, who guided Uruguay to the 2015 World Cup, revealed on a Uruguayan radio show that the eligibility of Belgium hooker Victor Paquet was being investigated.Paquet made his Test debut as a replacement in the match against Germany and has been quoted as saying he qualified for Belgium through his great-grandmother.However, World Rugby’s Regulation 8 states that you can only qualify to represent a nation different to that in which you were born if that country is the nation of birth of your parent or grandparent, or you have lived in that country for 36 consecutive months. So having a great-grandparent who was born in Belgium would not make Paquet eligible.Up in the air: Romania in action during their recent defeat by Georgia (Getty Images)Second, the eligibility of Romania centre Sione Faka’osilea is also under the microscope.Born in Tonga, Faka’osilea made his debut for Romania in March 2017 having completed the three-year residency period.However, the Russian federation called for an investigation after it was reported that Faka’osilea represented Tonga on the 2012-13 World Sevens Series.Playing for a national sevens team in an international tournament ties you to that country and you’re not allowed to represent a different nation at international level.Rugby’s entry into the Olympics has opened a loophole to this rule – one that Tim Nanai-Williams used to represent Samoa at Rio 2016 – but is not relevant here as Faka’osilea has not played in any sevens events for Romania.MORE ON RUGBY WORLD CUP 2019 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Expand Rugby World Cup 2019: Match schedule announced If investigations find that Paquet and/or Faka’osilea were ineligible to represent Belgium and Romania respectively, it could have far-reaching consequences for the 2019 World Cup.Last week Tahiti were kicked out of the qualifying process for Japan 2019 having fielded two ineligible players in their qualifier against Cook Islands. The match result was overturned and Cook Islands now move onto the Asia-Oceania Play-off against the winner of this year’s Asia Rugby Championship.If Romania and/or Belgium are also found guilty of breaching rugby’s eligibility regulations, they too could have their results from the past two years’ Rugby Europe Championships, which doubled as a RWC 2019 qualifying tournament, expunged.That could see Spain qualify automatically as Europe 1 and join Pool A at the 2019 World Cup rather than go into more qualifiers. They are currently due to play Portugal in a play-off, with the winner playing Samoa over two legs with the aim of securing the Play-off Winner spot, also in Pool A.Boiling over: Spanish players confront the referee after the Belgium defeat (Getty Images)Yet Spain could also find themselves in hot water, with the possibility of points deductions or fines, following the actions of their players after that Belgium defeat, where they surrounded the Romanian referee.Spain have also had the eligibility of two of their players questioned, according to Americas Rugby News. Two of their players, Thibaut Visensang and Mathieu Bélie, previously played for France U20, which used to be designated their next senior national representative team and thus would tie a player to France should they play against another U20 team that also had the same status, as in the case of Wales’ Steve Shingler in 2012.It appears Visensang did not play in any match against Wales, the only other U20 side as a next team at the time, so he is eligible for Spain. Bélie, however, did play against Wales U20 in 2008 and as such should be tied to France and ineligible. The crux of the issue could be whether France informed Bélie that by playing in the Wales match he would be ineligible for any other nation, as Wales had done in the Shingler case.Under scrutiny: Thibaut Visensang is tackled whilst playing for France U20 in 2011 (Getty Images)It is now a case of waiting to see the outcome of the Rugby Europe investigation and any statements from World Rugby, but action needs to be taken quicker than we saw in the Tahiti case. Their match against Cook Islands was in August 2017, with the investigation findings not announced until last week.With World Cup qualifiers coming up in the next few weeks and months, the governing bodies need to move swiftly so teams know where they stand.

The First ECO-SANDWICH ® House is a unique example of a holistic and innovative approach to sustainable architecture. The house is the first of twelve planned passive house energy standard multi-family houses in the green area of City of Koprivnica in Croatia, within the program of social housing. The First ECO-SANDWICH ® House is also the World`s first application of ECO-SANDWICH ® wall system.Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko MihaljevićECO-SANDWICH ® wall system was developed as a result of cooperation between Croatian scientific institutions (Faculty of Civil Engineering and Faculty of Architecture, University of Zagreb) and industry. It is a ventilated prefabricated wall panel that utilizes recycled construction and demolition waste (CDW) and mineral wool produced using innovative and sustainable Ecose® technology.Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko MihaljevićECO‐SANDWICH ® tackles four major environmental problems. It reduces greenhouse gas emission by energy efficiency of buildings, it reduces energy consumption in building sector, it increases resource efficiency through the use of construction and demolition waste (50% of total aggregates is obtained from recycled aggregate) and it minimizes the use of regulated chemicals like phenol and formaldehyde from the insulation material production process.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Section A-A’The research in the field of concrete technology shows that recycled aggregate can be used as a satisfactory substitute for aggregate from natural resources. Thermal transmittance of the concrete with recycled aggregate is 36% lower than the thermal transmittance of the concrete with natural aggregate. Additionally, thermal transmittance of the concrete with recycled bricks is 45% lower than the thermal transmittance of the concrete with natural aggregate. This adds a great value to material that is currently used for backfilling operation or is rejected at the landfills.Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko MihaljevićA newly developed mineral wool made using Ecose ® Technology is manufactured from abundant recycled and naturally occurring materials. The technology is free of formaldehyde, phenols, pentanes, butanes and acrylics. The first application of ECO-SANDWICH® system was realized as a donation of the European Union project to the investor, the City of Koprivnica Social Housing Agency, which supported the ECO-SANDWICH ® project from the very beginning.Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko MihaljevićThe project was realized thanks to the first implementation of sustainable, innovative, green public procurement as a model of financing in Croatia. The first ECO-SANDWICH ® House is a brand new residential type within the Social housing program in Croatia. It is a multi-family house with three different apartments, each having its own garden equipped with electrical and water supply. The house is designed as a passive solar house which is closed on the North to limit energy loss and open on the South to utilize solar radiation. All apartments are equipped with heat recovery ventilation systems.Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko MihaljevićThe project itself and realization of the house explored the possibilities of applying the ECO-SANDWICH ® system. Therefore, the building has a complex shape, with cantilevers, corner windows, loggia, balconies, etc., to solve as much details as possible and to create a catalog of solutions for future applications. It has been proven that the concept of a passive house, even with the application of a prefabricated façade system, does not necessary have to generate simple and boring architecture.Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko MihaljevićProject gallerySee allShow lessArup Sydney Offices / HASSELLSelected ProjectsDenton Corker Marshall Studio / Denton Corker MarshallSelected Projects Share Year: Photographs: Mark Miščević and Marko Mihaljević Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area: 394 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Mark Miščević and Marko Mihaljević+ 41Curated by María Francisca González Share Lead Architects: ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/873611/eco-sandwich-r-house-university-of-zagreb-faculty-of-architecture Clipboard ECO-SANDWICH® House / Ljubomir MiščevićSave this projectSaveECO-SANDWICH® House / Ljubomir Miščević Manufacturers: Plaka, ECO-SANDWICH®, Miral 2016 prof.

Comrades Minnie Bruce Pratt and Devin Cole (right) in Evergreen, Ala., October 2016.This talk was presented on Nov. 18 at the 2017 Workers World Party conference in Newark, N.J.Perhaps it is no coincidence that I was finishing this talk for the conference on Nov. 15. Today marks the third anniversary of WWP comrade and transgender revolutionary communist Leslie Feinberg’s untimely death.In the last section of Leslie’s 1992 publication, “Transgender Liberation: A Movement Whose Time Has Come,” Leslie closes out with these words:“The institutionalized bigotry and oppression we face today have not always existed. They arose with the division of society into exploiter and exploited. Divide-and-conquer tactics have allowed the slave-owners, feudal landlords and corporate ruling classes to keep for themselves the lion’s share of wealth created by the laboring class. Like racism and all forms of prejudice, bigotry toward transgender people is a deadly carcinogen. We are pitted against each other in order to keep us from seeing each other as allies.“Genuine bonds of solidarity can be forged between people who respect each other’s differences and are willing to fight their enemy together. We are the class that does the work of the world, and can revolutionize it. We can win true liberation. The struggle against intolerable conditions is on the rise around the world. And the militant role of transgender women, men and youths in today’s fightback movement is already helping to shape the future.”In northwest Florida, where I live, I lead an organization called Strive, or Social Trans Initiative. We are a grass-roots organization of working-class, multinational, multigender people who provide many services to the transgender people of northwest Florida and some surrounding areas.Among these services are emergency housing, payment allocations for HRT (hormone replacement therapy), food and transportation. We are the only organization in the area that handles these types of situations. We do not receive any federal assistance. This need for basic supplies for transgender people was born out of the material oppression of transgender people — the majority of transgender people are working class, poor, and all are oppressed.Queer and transgender oppression is born out of capitalist exploitation and white supremacy. Though white transgender people can and do still derive relative benefit from white supremacy, it is crucial to understand that anti-queer and anti-trans attitudes and behaviors are also born of white supremacy.Putting this into historical context, we understand that in prefeudal times, queer and trans identity was not only accepted, but often celebrated. Then, with the creation of private property, with the seizing and sectioning off of previously communal, public land by ruling-class families, the oppression of queer and transgender people began.Homosexuality or any sexual leanings away from “heterosexual sex only for reproductive reasons” was seen as a threat to land inheritance and thus to the continuation of private property. Because of this, trans people began to be demonized and shamed, and homosexual people began to be heavily persecuted.Thus began the system of exploitation by the white, European ruling class that continued throughout the centuries until the colonization of the so-called “New World” and the subsequent slaughter of the Indigenous people, who celebrated gender variance with identities such as Two-Spirit. This is the connection between white supremacy and queer/transgender oppression.Capitalism is at its end and survives only through continued imperialist war and exploitation of the masses. Queer and transgender people are no exception, and in fact we are thoroughly part of the oppressed masses. And every intersecting identity, be it nationality, race, dis/ability, citizen status, etc., includes queer and transgender people.Therefore, the wild accusations that Marxist-Leninists are putting “identity politics over everything” are just that: Wild. False. While it is true that focusing too deeply on a single identity in terms of political struggle can put us onto an incorrect path toward liberalism, we must also look at how each of these oppressed identities interact and intersect with each other and apply those insights to the struggles of the working class.And, yes, queer and trans people fit into every sector of oppression, but these are not the only sectors that intersect and overlap. Black and Brown women and undocumented migrants are two other groups that face heavy oppression. To fail to acknowledge any oppressed groups in order to “avoid identity politics” is to willfully deny the historical and material conditions that led to the exploitation and oppression of these groups.All oppressed and exploited groups must be represented in order for the atrocities of capitalism to be fully destroyed, in order to defeat capitalism and bury it once and for all.Finally, the exploitation of queer and trans workers must be discussed. Transgender people specifically face high amounts of unemployment and even once in the workforce, face discrimination from both other workers and management. In northwest Florida, we find ourselves assisting transgender people who work, either full or part time, with basic needs such as housing and medication.This is evidence enough that capitalism is an inefficient and outdated system: full-time workers are still struggling for basic needs. I am presently a full-time worker myself and still struggle to pay monthly rent and bills. I share with a roommate who also works, but only barely, because she is also transgender and is also subjected to anti-trans prejudice in relation to work.Due to the decline of heavy industry and the replacement of many already low-wage jobs with high-tech equipment, it becomes harder and harder to secure a stable income or to join a union to fight for better working conditions. This is merely another function of capitalism’s inevitable decay and affects trans workers disproportionately to most in the workforce.As unions, which were created to build solidarity among workers, have declined, the homo/transphobic, divide-and-conquer tactics by the ruling class capitalists have tainted both union organizing and the workplace itself, causing deeper divisions between queer/transgender workers and cisgender/heterosexual workers.Solidarity among all workers and oppressed peoples must be built with these groups in order for all of us to be liberated — and in order for socialism to be built and maintained.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Limerick centre needed to tackle environmental issues LIMERICK City and County Council is urging landowners not to carry out any illegal burning of land during the COVID-19 crisis.A spokesperson for Limerick City and County Council said as Ireland is currently in a national public health emergency due to the spread of COVID-19 “everyone needs to ensure that all of our emergency services personnel are available in terms of public safety”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The message echoes that of the Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine Michael Creed TD who issued strong warnings to landowners about an illegal burning activity.The spokesperson said, “This is an unprecedented time in Ireland and everyone must play their part in supporting our emergency services and ensuring they are not needlessly diverted, so it is crucially important that landowners heed the Minister’s warning.“If someone should start an illegal fire in the countryside this will cause the unnecessary diversions of emergency service resources”.The statement added that wildfires can cause disruption in rural communities as well as putting homes and livelihoods at risk.“Such disturbances to rural dwellers, including those who are old and vulnerable cannot be allowed under any circumstances but especially at this time when the country is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic,” the statement concluded.If you burn land between the 01 March and 31 August:You risk prosecution, fines and potential imprisonmentSuch land will no longer be eligible for payment under the Basic Payment Scheme and other area-based schemesInclusion of illegally burnt land in the 2020 Basic Payment Scheme application may result in reduced payment and penalties under this scheme and the other area-based schemes, e.g. Areas of Natural Constraints SchemeIllegal burning can also render the land of your neighbours ineligible for paymentWhere it is identified that lands were burnt during the closed season this may result in such land being inspected by Department officials Discover the wonders of Limerick during Heritage Week RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Email Linkedin Advertisement Limerick Senator has beef with meat industry TAGScitycountyEnvironmentillegalIrelandlimerickLimerick City and County CouncilNews Twitter Previous articleCiara raises €40,000 for the Children’s Grief CentreNext articleAnn & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 7 | A new normal Cian Reinhardthttp://www.limerickpost.ieJournalist & Digital Media Coordinator.

The Bench of Justice S. K. Mishra and Justice Savitri Ratho hoped that appropriate measures would be taken by the State of Odisha and the High Court of Orissa “for expeditious disposal of the Criminal Appeals in which the appellants are still in custody.” The matter before the Court The Court observed this while rejecting the criminal appeal filed by a person who had assailed his conviction under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 and sentence of imprisonment for life and to pay a fine of Rs.1000/- (rupees one thousand), in default to pay the fine, to undergo rigorous imprisonment for one month, passed by learned Addl. Sessions Judge, Jajpur. Court’s observation “As regarding the delay in disposal of the appeal is concerned, we are constraint to observe that because of things or matters not in the hands of the judiciary, the appeals are being taken up at a belated stage for which we consider all the stake holders including the judiciary responsible for the same. But at the same time we do not say that judiciary is alone responsible for delay in disposal of the cases”, said the Court. The Court also said, “We hope and trust that appropriate measures should be taken by the State of Odisha and the High Court of Orissa for expeditious disposal of the Criminal Appeals in which the appellants are still in custody.” The Supreme Court in June 2020 directed the High Courts of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Patna, Rajasthan, Bombay and Orissa to file affidavits submitting their ‘plan of action’ for deciding the criminal appeals that have been pending before the High Courts for a long period of time. The bench of Justice L. Nageswara Rao and S. Ravindra Bhat was considering a criminal appeal against an order of Allahabad High Court rejecting suspension of sentence of a convict in a murder case.

Tags Email Address* Phyllis and Mitchell Kossoff (Getty, iStock)This has to be the worst Mother’s Day present ever.Real estate attorney Mitchell Kossoff allegedly forged his 94-year-old mother’s signature to take out more than $2 million in loans before he went AWOL earlier this month.Kossoff, who went radio-silent in early April when clients began asking about their escrow accounts, took out $2.6 million in August and January in merchant cash advances — essentially a kind of corporate payday loan where a firm sells its future revenues in exchange for up-front cash. Kossoff agreed to pay back $3.7 million, according to a lawsuit filed two weeks ago by the financing firm.The loan documents show the signatures of Kossoff and one purported to be that of his mother, Phyllis Kossoff. So when the attorney defaulted on the financing agreement, the lender sued both son and mother.ADVERTISEMENTPhyllis, however, claims that her son forged her signature, and only dropped the bomb on her last week that there “are ‘some documents’ which had her signature ‘but which she had not signed,’” according to court documents the mother filed Thursday.“As incredible as it sounds . . . it is obvious that Mitchell Kossoff forged his mother’s signature in order to obtain millions of dollars from the defendants for the benefit of himself and his businesses,” attorneys for Phyllis wrote in a motion seeking an injunction to prevent the lender from going after her for the funds.Phyllis Kossoff’s attorney declined to comment further. Mitchell Kossoff could not be reached for comment.The news that Mitchell spoke to his mother — a wealthy philanthropist who helped found the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation — as recently as last week is the first public hint as to his whereabouts since he went off the map about three weeks ago.Kossoff held money in escrow for his real estate clients and many feared he had stolen the money. His law firm has essentially shut down and several of his clients are trying to force the company into bankruptcy.Kossoff has until next week to respond to the bankruptcy filing. If he doesn’t, the judge will appoint a receiver to shepherd the bankruptcy process.The Manhattan district attorney’s office is said to be investigating claims that Kossoff misused his clients’ funds. Kossoff has reportedly retained a criminal defense attorney to represent him should he face any charges.Contact Rich Bockmann Message* Mitch KossoffReal Estate Lawsuits Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink
