Blue Bulls’ Derick Kuun cited for striking Bismarck du Plessis below the belt

first_imgTuesday Oct 19, 2010 Blue Bulls’ Derick Kuun cited for striking Bismarck du Plessis below the belt This past weekend seems to have been less eventful than the previous in terms of citings, but there was one for Blue Bulls flank Derick Kuun following an altercation for Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis in the Currie Cup semi final in Durban.The game started late thanks to the infamous Beegate debacle, but it didnt lack any sting as the rain came down and things got quite heated in the second half.As youll see in the clip, Du Plessis whos never far from the action tried to get the ball back from Kuun after being awarded a penalty, but things got out of hand with Kuun striking out at the fiery Bok hooker.Whether it was in fact a punch or an open hand push remains to be seen as the cameras didnt pick it up very well. It seemed to hit the spot though as Du Plessis got that delayed reaction then ended up on the floor.Kuun has since been cited for foul play under law 10.4 (a) for striking. He was due to appear in front of a SARU judiciary committee earlier today, but thats now been postponed till Friday for an unknown reason.

The design task of our project CC Residence, similar to most of other housing projects in Hochiminh City, Vietnam is to find a solution to comfortable living condition in a high populated urban area in the tropics. The house is to serve its owner by creating a shelter not only to protect the people from the hot, humid and highly solar-radiated tropical weather, but also to create as much space as possible as well as to provide an enjoyable living atmosphere.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAlong with the growth of economy, like other Asian cities, Hochiminh City has a rapidly expanding its population and the demand of living had led to more and more slabs being stacked on one another to maximize floor area of buildings. Consequently, suitable living conditions such as natural lighting, ventilation or relaxing spaces are more and more difficult to be adopted.  Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiOur idea for this project is to rearrange the allowed build-able volume by taking the volumes of two internal voids from the main volume, dividing them into several smaller volumes and attached them back to perimeter to serve as balconies. By doing this, as a whole, we create a porous volume which allow wind and natural light to flow in every corner of the house while still keep the necessary required volume.Save this picture!SketchCC Residence has 5 stories and consists of 7 apartments in which 2 are duplex with private courtyards. These 7 units embrace 2 internal voids with several balconies facing the outside. Internal voids provide private courtyards, laundry balconies and ventilation shafts for the dwellings while external balconies together with the double layer brick exterior create a “double skin” facade protecting the dwellings from the tropical weather.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe “double skin” facade is combined with two layers, internal layer of inner brick layer, glass openings and external layer of outer brick layer, balconies’ hollow brick, and greenery. This facade creates sunshade, allows airflow in between the layers and more over uses the bio-skin greenery to reduce heat radiation and provide relaxing atmosphere as a bonus.Save this picture!DetailWe try to capture the sense of a tropical dwelling by creating several forms of sun shade from either an eave, hollow brick walls or greenery, etc…in order to ease up the harsh solar radiation and provide comfortable relaxing spaces where natural wind flows.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiLocations of the balconies and greenery are studied to be random and spontaneous which slightly make the house blend in the surrounding context introducing a new kind of architecture yet paying respect to its neighborhood.Save this picture!SectionDevelopment of a City inevitably brings many impacts on our living conditions including both positive and negative ones. Through this project, we would like to propose a solution for a way of living in a high density tropical urban area which satisfies our demand of spaces while still brings us a “close-to-nature” enjoyable environment.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessThapar University Student Residence One / McCullough Mulvin Architects with Designpl…Selected ProjectsHSH House / A MilimetreSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ho Chi Minh City, VietnamLocation to be used only as a reference.

The trauma of journalists forced into exile

first_img Organisation Help by sharing this information April 28, 2009 – Updated on January 25, 2016 The trauma of journalists forced into exile Hundreds of journalists who had to flee into exile because they had been attacked or threatened are being given an opportunity by Reporters Without Borders to begin publishing their work again.Dozens of journalists silently flee their country every year, without being offered a platform to protest. Most are from Africa and the Middle East, especially Eritrea, Somalia, Iraq and Iran. Most of them have been the victims of reprisals by their government, or the targets of armed militias, organised crime, or political or religious movements. Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the extent of this problem, which highlights the decline in press freedom around the world. It is extremely dangerous for journalists to use their right to free expression in some countries. Violence is the enemy of press freedom. When journalists are forced into exile, their countries lose valuable independent observers of their political and social situation.Among the most painful blows for journalists forced to flee into exile is finding themselves reduced to silence and forgotten by those they used to address. For this reason, Reporters Without Borders is offering them a forum, a page on its website, where they can express their views, post articles and report on what has been happening to them.Providing these men and women, whose lives and freedom were in jeopardy, with a platform for the stories of their experiences, for their videos and for their reports from exile is the only way to restore their right to speak and the only way to prevent their exile from becoming a victory for the oppressors who wanted to silence them.Journalists under threat hold on until the last moment before fleeing. They leave in response to a need, to a survival instinct. When Roza Malsagova, the editor of the Ingushetiya.ru website, left on a 10-day trip to the Czech Republic, she did not suspect that she would not be returning home to Ingushetia, a republic in the Russian Caucasus adjoining Chechnya where the civilian population is exposed to an appalling level of violence. After the website’s owner, Magomed Yevloyev, was murdered while held by the security forces, Malsagova felt she had no choice but to ask France for asylum. Does exile at least offer protection? There are no guarantees. As well as losing their right to work as journalists, these refugees must face new dangers. The flight into exile can prove extremely unpleasant. In some countries such as Iran or Eritrea, fleeing abroad is regarded as treason. Crossing the border on foot, concealing oneself in someone’s vehicle, seeking refuge in a village, hiding from border guards – this is all part of the experience of going into exile.Protection is just one of the facets of exile. Others include the unbearable periods of waiting, the suffering that results from being uprooted, and sometimes even hunger. Many exiles find themselves in an extremely difficult situation, trapped in an extended exile without any prospect of being able to return home or integrate into the country that has offered them asylum.An Eritrean refugee journalist in the Sudanese capital described his feeling of despair to us. “I’ve been hiding for months in Khartoum, where I have rented a room, because there was less risk here of being kidnapped by the Eritrean security forces present in Sudan,” he said. “But I have no money and eating three meals a day has become a luxury. I have avoided imprisonment and the government’s wrath but this is the first time I have found myself in financial difficulty. I now feel trapped, far from home and facing unprecedented problems.”The luckiest, those who have overcome the thorny problems of visas and residence permits, experience the difficulties that all refugees face – starting from zero, reuniting with their family, finding accommodation, getting training, finding some kind of job and communicating with their new compatriots in the host country’s language. Each component of daily life is a challenge, a new test. A Syrian journalist who has found refuge in Europe said: “I am nothing here. I must restart from scratch, rebuild everything, even my own identity.” center_img RSF_en Newslast_img read more

The bench comprised by Justices Shashi Kant Gupta and Saurabh Shyam Shamshery observed that even though there is no law for appointment of guardians for a person in a comatose state, the court was obliged in its capacity as a ‘parens patriae’ to do justice to the Petitioner. “We cannot lose sight of the fact that we have been called upon to discharge ‘parens patriae’ jurisdiction. The Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India can pass orders and given directions as are necessary for subserving the ends of justice when no remedy is provided in any statute in respect to persons lying in comatose condition,” the court said. The court also called upon the Central Government to pass an appropriate legislation on this subject. Background The Petitioner had approached the High Court seeking to be appointed as the guardian of her husband to protect his interest, administer bank accounts, investments, proprietorship business, etc. and in the event of necessity, to sell the immovable property standing in the name of her husband and to use the proceeds towards medical treatment of her husband and family welfare expenses. It was submitted that the Petitioner’s husband had been in comatose state for past one and a half years and the Doctors’ had advised that he would remain so until his eventual demise. The Petitioner had thus sought to be appointed as her husband’s guardian to be able to cover the expenses of his treatment and nursing care, and that of her two daughters’ marriage. However, it was also admitted that unlike legislations for appointment of guardian for minors and persons with other disabilities or mental illnesses, there is now law to appoint a guardian for a person in coma state. In fact, such persons do not even fall within the purview of ‘person with multiple disabilities’ under the National Trust for the Welfare of Persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, and Multiple Disabilities Act, 1999. It was submitted that even the RBI guidelines, advising the Banks to accept Guardianship Certificates issued under National Trust Act, 1999 are not applicable in respect of a person lying in a comatose state. Findings The High Court observed that it could, in exercise of its powers under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, invoke the doctrine of Parens patriae and appoint the Petitioner as a Guardian of her husband. “In our opinion, in the present case this Court cannot shirk its responsibility when a distress call is given by a sinking family of a person lying in a comatose state for the past year and a half. The dominant factor, after all, is not enforcement of rights guaranteeing protection of life of warring parties under Article 226 of the Constitution but the protection of the rights of a human being lying in a comatose state under Article 21 of the Constitution of India,” the court observed. It relied on the decision of the Kerala High Court in the case of Shobha Gopalakrishnan & Ors. v. State of Kerala & Ors., (2019) SCC Online Ker 739, whereby a division bench appointed the legal heir of the victim as a guardian, recognizing the same to be a “SOS Call” of the victim’s “sinking family”. Reliance was also placed on the judgment of the Delhi High Court in the case of Vandana Tyagi v. Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi & Ors., (2020) SCC Online Del 32, which followed the suit. The division bench thus allowed the writ petition while clarifying that the Petitioner shall not sell, alienate encumber any of the immovable properties of her husband, except with the express permission of the Registrar General of this Court. Guidelines for appointment of guardian qua a person lying in a comatose The High Court observed that the guidelines framed by the Kerala High Court in the case of Shobha Gopalakrishnan (supra) with regard to appointment of guardian qua a person lying in a comatose state are “formidable”. The bench was of the opinion that the same can be used as “framework” for formulating guidelines that need to be implemented in the State of Uttar Pradesh till such time, the legislative enactments are framed and specific provisions are made. The High Court thus fixed the following norms/ guidelines as a temporary measure to be followed in the state, till an appropriate enactment is legislated for appointment of guardians vis-a-vis individuals lying in comatose state: “(i) A person(s) who seek(s) to be appointed as guardians vis-à-vis an individual, who is lying in comatose state, shall in their petition to the High Court (in short ‘Court’) disclose the details of all tangible and intangible assets of such an individual. The details as to their location and approximate market value shall also be disclosed. In case of bank accounts, stocks, shares, and debentures and other investments are concerned, material particulars will be provided. (ii) The Court will have the person lying in comatose examined by a duly constituted medical board which would include, inter alia, a neurologist. (iii) The court will also direct the concerned SDM/Tehsildar in whose jurisdiction the person lying in comatose is said to be located to carry out an enquiry to establish the veracity of the assertion and to gather material particulars concerning the person(s) who approach the court for being appointed as guardians. The enquiry will, inter alia, gather information as regards the relationship that the person(s) who wish to be appointed as guardians has/have with the person lying in comatose state. Information with regard to the financial condition of persons wanting to be appointed as guardians shall also be collected apart from other aspects which may have a material bearing in their discharging the duties of a guardian. Any conflict of interest concerning the affairs of the person lying in comatose state will be brought to fore in the report generated during the course of the enquiry. (iv) Ordinarily only that person will be appointed as guardian who is a spouse or a progeny of the person lying in comatose. The person seeking appointment as a guardian in his petition to the court will, however, disclose the particulars of all legal heirs of the person lying in comatose. In the event, the person lying in comatose has neither a spouse nor any children or even any legal heirs or if he/she has such persons in his life but stands abandoned by them subject to the permission of the court his next friend who wishes to be appointed as a guardian can approach the court with such a request. In the alternative, the Court could direct the Department of Social Welfare, GNCTD to appoint a public official such as a Social Welfare Officer or a person holding equivalent rank to act as the guardian of the person lying in comatose state. (v) Only that person shall be appointed as a guardian who is otherwise in law competent to act as a guardian. (vi) The order directing appointment of a guardian shall specify the assets qua which the guardianship order is passed. The court will be empowered to modify the order and bring within its sweep other assets, if required, in the interest of the person lying in comatose state. In case liquid funds are not available and there is a requirement to sell the assets of the person lying in comatose state, upon the guardian approaching the court, necessary directions could be passed in that behalf. (vii) The person appointed as a guardian will file every six (6) months (or within such period as the court may indicate in its order) a report with the Registrar General of this court. The report shall advert to the transactions undertaken by the guardian in respect of the assets of the person lying in comatose state. Besides this, the report shall also indicate the funds, if any, received by the guardian and their utilization for the purposes of maintaining the person lying in comatose state. (viii) The Registrar General of this court will cause a separate register to be maintained which will set out inter alia the details of the proceedings, the particulars of the person appointed as a guardian and orders, if any, passed after the appointment of the guardian. Measures will also be taken by the Registrar General to preserve the reports filed by the guardian from time to time. (ix) It will be open to the court to appoint a guardian either temporarily or for a limited period, as may be deemed fit. (x) In the event, the guardian appointed by the court misuses his/her power or misappropriates, siphons or misutilizes the assets of the person lying in comatose state or fails to utilize the assets in the best interest of the person lying in comatose state, the court would have the power to remove the guardian and appoint another person in his/her place. The substituted person could also be a public officer such as a Social Welfare Officer or an officer holding an equivalent rank.
