This follows recent comments from Sam Burgess about the coaches behaviour during the 2015 Rugby World Cup.ADVERTISEMENTBurgess said he told Ford to his face that he was a bit of a snake, after he repeatedly defamed Burgess in the media during the 2015 tournament, when England were knocked out in the pool stages at home.Burgess was considered by many to be a scapegoat for their performances, while he maintains that egos and hidden agendas were one of the actual reasons.

The design for a single-family villa in the Chouf mountains in Lebanon, took its inspiration from the landscape and the territory. The villa is located in the small village of Brih, which witnessed destruction and desolation during the Lebanese war. Save this picture!Mass PlanThe concept evolved as a composition in two volumes, separate yet connected through the main entrance/lobby: on the frontal side, the public functions, and in the back the family areas contained in a two-storey structure. The resulting U-shape configuration encloses an outdoor space with a pool, almost like a private piazza, open to the landscape. Save this picture!© Jad GhorayebThe approach to the villa is through a meandering road at the bottom of the hill, passing though the terraced olive groves, which follow the natural topography. The building accentuates this horizontal composition, as a terminal point, combining natural stone with a contrasting white stucco in its finishing. Save this picture!© Jad GhorayebSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jad GhorayebThe villa embeds itself discretely within the site through this sensitive arrangement of elements, deriving its minimalistic aesthetic from the typology of traditional forms, rendered in modern forms. It reinterprets the traditional typology by opening up to the landscape, while recreating a sequence of passages and patios reminiscent of traditional architecture. The house avoids contemporary fascination with ‘glamorous’ forms, or the reactionary imposition of ‘monumental’ mansions, focusing instead on the integration in the landscape, the context, and its history. Save this picture!© Jad GhorayebProject gallerySee allShow lessMetal Rainbow-Zhongshu Bookstore in Suzhou / Wutopia LabSelected ProjectsClub Med Shanghai Office / 100architectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Brih, Lebanon ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

#SinkingColumbus Boston march demands Indigenous Peoples Day

first_imgMarch through downtown Boston demands ‘Indigenous Peoples’ Day Now!’A fired-up crowd gathered outside Boston’s Park Street Station Oct. 7 to demand Indigenous Peoples Day be observed on the second Monday in October by Boston and other Massachusetts cities and towns. The group also decried practices in schools and workplaces that glorified Columbus with the annual holiday, parades and rehashing the myth of “the discovery of America” instead of exposing him as a genocidal slave trader and murderer.Led by Indigenous people, the event was part of a coast-to-coast movement fighting to end Columbus Day and to build momentum for Indigenous Peoples Day.The mobilization brought out participants and supporters from a broad range of local communities that have considerable first-hand experience dealing with the man-made catastrophes of colonialism and white supremacy.Mahtowin Munro, of United American Indians of New England and lead organizer for Indigenous Peoples Day in Massachusetts, opened the rally by clarifying: “First, we are here to tell the truth about Columbus … who didn’t discover anything. He invaded! You can’t discover a place where people were already living!”Alberto Barreto spoke on behalf of the Taino people of Borinquen (Puerto Rico) and its diaspora: “We are all relatives, Native people.” He reminded listeners, “And as relatives, we are creating a bloc of resistance — from Patagonia to Standing Rock to the Caribbean — to say no to Columbus and to celebrate our life, Indigenous life!”Barreto continued, “Hundreds of years of colonialism have stifled the Puerto Rican economy … and the profits they have taken will never re-enter the island. Now, the white supremacist is throwing paper towels at us. So now is the time! I don’t want to see that statue of Christopher Columbus; I want him down!”In addition to Black and Palestinian speakers, other Indigenous speakers were Narragansett, Wampanoag, Mi’kmaq, Mexica, and Tunica-Biloxi/Choctaw.Narragansett Two-Spirit WWP member Nat Heathman “decorated” Columbus statue.Nat Heathman, a young Narragansett Two-Spirit activist and member of Workers World Party, spoke about the isolation many generations of Indigenous people in the U.S. have faced growing up: “[F]eeling the sorrow, longing and anger born of catching a glimpse of such a vibrant, beautiful, fascinating, precious world, of everything that used to be and could have been, but knowing that it isn’t anymore.”One way to heal from the pain of this isolation, Heathman suggested, is collective action to tear down racist statues and all of white supremacy.After the inspiring rally, the group marched through Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood. There it swelled to over 200 strong, stirring interest from tourists and passersby. Heathman and other young militants led the growing crowd in chanting, “Indigenous people say: No more Columbus Day!” and “This land is stolen land! Blood is on Columbus’ hands!”The march arrived at Boston’s waterfront-area Columbus statue, privately owned and maintained by the “Sons of Italy,” a U.S.-based Italian fraternal organization widely criticized over its reverence for fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.As the crowd chanted, “The statue, let’s face it, this shit is fucking racist!” Heathman ascended the base of the statue and “decorated” it with placards reading, “Christopher Columbus was a genocidal slave trader — #TearDownWhiteSupremacy” and “Columbus: time to bring him down.”Finally, a rally concluded the day with several additional speakers, including local labor activists who voiced support for the demand to replace Columbus Day with indigenous Peoples’ Day.“Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a workers’ issue,” said Ed Childs of UNITE-HERE Local 26, Hotel and Restaurant Employees.“It’s not just about getting a day off,” Childs told Workers World. “It’s about who is celebrated and who is put to the side. Why do some workers get a day off to glorify white supremacy and not a day for solidarity with oppressed people?”Led by Indigenous people, the crowd then turned toward the Boston Harbor and together honored the powerful ocean beyond it, acknowledging the crucial role of Indigenous people in safeguarding the water and the earth.WW photos: Stevan KirschbaumFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

After winning indefinite stay of execution, next step is to free Rodney Reed!

first_imgNov. 17 — It was a peoples’ victory! It was a legal victory! On Nov. 15, Texas’ highest criminal court indefinitely stayed Rodney Reed’s Nov. 20 execution date. His case was remanded back to trial court just five days before he was to be legally lynched by the state of Texas.Reed, an African-American man, was wrongfully convicted in 1998 of raping and murdering a young white woman named Stacey Stites. He was sentenced to death after the prosecution withheld exculpatory evidence from Reed’s defense team and after the state’s witnesses testified to false evidence.Just hours after the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles voted unanimously to recommend to the governor that Reed be given a 120-day stay of execution on Nov. 15, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals issued an indefinite stay of execution.The court cited concealed information, false testimony and possible innocence in its last-minute decision to stay the execution. Reed’s case had captured national and international attention in the last few months with the help of almost daily vigils, protests, marches and rallies.  After well-known celebrities began speaking out against his execution, there was an avalanche of support from politicians from both major bourgeois parties, athletes, civil rights organizations and just everyday people who saw the Reed case as just one more lying, racist attack on a person of color.Finally, after over 21 years, all the evidence that will prove that Reed could not have committed the murder will be heard in a court of law.Over two decades of tortureReed, along with his parents, siblings and whole extended family, has had to endure the painful trauma of living on death row and waiting for Texas to murder him.Reed’s mother, Sandra, his father, Walter, and his five brothers have fought and fought for two decades. They survived an execution date in 2015.After Reed’s father died in 2015, his mother and brother, Rodrick, have spearheaded the family’s efforts to get justice. For the last several months, Rodrick and his spouse, Wana Akpan Reed, have traveled the country speaking out for Rodney. From the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to New York to Ohio, they have spoken at events in Austin, Dallas and Houston. They’ve held press conferences, marched, rallied and held countless actions in their hometown of Bastrop. Following the indefinite stay, Rodrick Reed posted on his Facebook page: “It feels so good to finally breathe. But this fight is not over with! While we celebrate this victory, we cannot lose momentum or motivation. I think to myself every day, I wonder what Rodney is doing right now? Remember this: Rodney will be removed from death watch area and returned to his 60-square-foot cell for 23 hours a day, seven days a week, being fed through a tiny slit like a caged animal. We have to keep fighting hard while we have this powerful momentum. Rodney needs to be freed. Period. We are focusing 100 percent of our energies on bringing Rodney home alive.  . . . We miss Rodney so bad it literally hurts. I miss my brother. I know my brother wants exoneration before freedom. But we just want him home.”Even though many celebrities have come out for Reed, it is the grassroots activists who have worked for the last 20 years to bring justice for Reed. It is the community rallies, university meetings, marches and vigils that have brought out families, students and activists.There were 130 planned rallies across the country this weekend, and activist Shaun King, with Action PAC, sent word they were still on after the stay was announced.Alamo Heights High School students in San Antonio gathered in the town plaza on Nov. 16 where Magoli Garcia, 17, and her classmates rallied. She thought of the protest in her humanities class after they watched documentaries such as “13th” that explored slavery and how that flowed directly into the U.S. prison system. She told the San Antonio Express News, “Even though we’re small,” she said, “we’re mighty, and we want to be heard.” (Nov. 16)In Houston on Nov. 17 people gathered at the federal courthouse and marched to City Hall. The rally chair explained the latest news and encouraged everyone to keep up the fight. A high school debate teacher said she was going to have her students learn about the death penalty.In Austin on Nov. 17, activists again gathered outside the governor’s mansion in an emotional rally. Rodrick Reed spoke. He thanked everyone for all their work and sacrifices and said on a Facebook live feed, “This isn’t victory. We won a small battle, but the war is still going. Victory will be when Rodney comes home to his family and we can be whole again. We are planning a lot more actions; we’re just getting warmed up. So, lace your boots up tight and get ready to fight! Free Rodney Reed!”  Rubac is a longtime leader of the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement in Houston.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Julián Castro’s 2020 announcement brightens spotlight on potential Texas showdown with Beto O’Rourke

first_img Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Local NewsElections Julián Castro’s 2020 announcement brightens spotlight on potential Texas showdown with Beto O’Rourke Facebook SAN ANTONIO — Lingering around after Julián Castro announced his presidential campaign here Saturday, Santa Garcia Rivera and her niece, Santa Garcia Reyes, said they were thrilled to see someone from the city’s hardscrabble West Side reach for the highest office in the country. But they also expressed some ambivalence as they sized up a potential 2020 presidential field that could include another Texas Democrat: Beto O’Rourke. “It’s really tough,” said Garcia Reyes, a 45-year-old education specialist for Early Head Start. “I think they have a lot of the same values.” Ultimately, Garcia Reyes said, “my loyalty is going to be to Julián… just seeing that he’s never forgot about the people here in San Antonio.” Her aunt, however, seemed less sure which Texan would end up earning her vote if they both run. Such mixed feelings are not uncommon among Texas Democrats, who could end up with two of their own running in 2020. O’Rourke’s closer-than-expected loss to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz last year made him a national star, eclipsing Castro’s longtime status — along with his brother — as Texas Democrats’ best hope. Now, all eyes are on whether O’Rourke will ride the momentum to a 2020 bid of his own and officially test the loyalties of people like Garcia Rivera and her niece. As O’Rourke’s 2020 buzz has intensified — with early polls showing him far outranking his fellow Texan — Castro has said there is enough room in the race for both of them. And both have said the other’s plans will not affect theirs. All this is unfolding as delegate-rich Texas is poised to have considerable influence in the 2020 nominating process with its early March primary — a high-stakes moment if the two Texans make can it there. O’Rourke does not appear to be in a rush to make a 2020 decision and is not expected to make one until February at the earliest. In the meantime, every move he makes is drawing intense attention — from the videos he has tweeted out arguing against President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall to his Instagram posts Thursday from the dentist’s chair. Media mogul Oprah Winfrey announced Friday that she will interview O’Rourke on Feb. 5 in New York City, an event guaranteed to captivate the political world. Castro and O’Rourke are not particularly close but have appeared friendly in public, and Castro and his brother, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, joined O’Rourke on the campaign trail during the closing weeks of the U.S. Senate race. The brothers’ political paths also intersected with O’Rourke’s in the first few months of 2017, when Joaquin Castro mulled a U.S. Senate run at the same time O’Rourke did. Joaquin Castro ultimately passed on the Senate bid, announcing his decision about a month after O’Rourke launched his campaign. Speaking before his brother Saturday, Joaquin Castro said there will be “a lot of great candidates” in the presidential race — many of them friends the brothers respect — “but I know we have the best candidate with the best ideas and the biggest heart.” Joaquin Castro told reporters afterward he was not concerned about a potential O’Rourke candidacy. “All of the candidates who are going to enter this race — there’s something good about everybody, so [Julián]’s just gonna go and do the hard work of focusing on his vision and getting his message out to people,” Joaquin Castro said, “and we understand it’s a competition obviously and it’s a race, but you really can’t focus on what other people are doing.” Asked what his message was for conflicted Texas Democrats, Joaquin Castro said, “I would ask them to follow their heart and their mind.” Some Texas Democrats are not waiting on O’Rourke’s decision to give their unequivocal backing to Julián Castro. Among them is freshman state Rep. James Talarico, D-Round Rock, who was the first introductory speaker Saturday. Talarico recalled his experience teaching middle school on San Antonio’s West Side while Castro was the city’s mayor, pushing an education-centric agenda. In an interview afterward, Talarico said it was seeing Castro’s leadership “up close and personal in San Antonio” that led him to offer him his “full, complete endorsement for 2020.” “I’m a huge fan of Congressman O’Rourke, he campaigned with me, his campaign was hugely helpful in our race, he would make an incredible president, but just my history has been with Secretary Castro,” Talarico said. “No matter who else runs, he’s gonna be my candidate.” Talarico was joined in the lineup by a second state representative, Diego Bernal, a longtime friend of the Castros. And in another show of support among House Democrats, state Rep. Poncho Nevárez of Eagle Pass tweeted Friday that he was “all in” for Julián Castro. Other Democrats are keeping their powder dry for now, reiterating how much of a net positive it is for Texas to have two Democrats in the 2020 mix. “I grew up here and never in my lifetime has Texas been a battleground state,” said Sri Preston Kulkarni, a former congressional candidate from the Houston suburbs who attended Castro’s announcement. “Texas is a battleground state right now, and the energy, the excitement here — to see so many people coming out for a Texas Democrat running for president — that’s huge.” Texas Democratic up-and-comers like Kulkarni face something of a conundrum when it comes to making a decision about who to support in 2020. Castro donated to their campaigns through his Opportunity First PAC and stumped for them. O’Rourke, meanwhile, gave them speaking time at his massively attended events and had an impact on their margins with his closer-than-expected loss at the top of the ticket. Castro used his Opportunity First PAC to endorse over two dozen candidates last cycle in Texas, including the two biggest winners: Colin Allred, who unseated U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas, and Lizzie Fletcher, who beat U.S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston. Castro was especially involved with Allred, who worked under Castro at HUD, backing him early on in what became a crowded primary. Allred has not shied away from Castro’s 2020 maneuvering in recent weeks, issuing a supportive statement when he formed an exploratory committee a month ago, sending a fundraising email for the committee and talking him up during a recent Sunday show appearance. “Well, I certainly like my former boss, Julián Castro, who is a friend of mine and a mentor of mine,” Allred said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” adding, “we have a lot of political talent in Texas.” For those trying to imagine what it would be like to have both Texas Democrats in the race, Castro’s Saturday announcement was instructive. He appeared to speak from a teleprompter, the lineup of introductory speakers was carefully curated to highlight his accomplishments and campaign surrogates were made available to the media afterward — all contrasts with the freewheeling, unvarnished style of O’Rourke’s 2018 U.S. Senate run. To political observers, Julián Castro’s announcement speech invoked O’Rourke’s 2018 bid in at least one way: Castro vowed not to take campaign contributions from PACs, a hallmark of O’Rourke’s run. The promise, which Castro has been making for about a month now, was among the bigger applause lines as he spoke at the West Side’s historic Plaza Guadalupe. Texas Republicans, for their part, were happy to stoke divisions between Castro and O’Rourke on Saturday. On a conference call with reporters before Castro’s announcement, Texas GOP Chairman James Dickey said the soon-to-be candidate was “absolutely” grappling with having his spotlight stolen by O’Rourke. “As someone who made it obvious for a long time that he felt like he had a right to go for the presidency, he’s got to be incredibly miffed at how quickly… the void of absence was filled during the last two years,” Dickey said.

Singh observed.In this case, the NCLT had issued notice an application filed under Section 43 for avoidance of preferential transactions of the resolution process which was filed before it approved the resolution plan.  Assailing this proceedings, the petitioner’s contention was that under the scheme of the IBC, once the CIRP has reached finality, the Resolution Professional (RP) becomes functus officio and can no longer file or pursue any application on behalf of the company.As per Section 43 of the code, if the RP is of the opinion that any preferential transaction has taken place, by which the Corporate Debtor has given any benefit to a related party, two years prior to the insolvency commencement date or a preference to an unrelated party one year prior to the said date, he can move an application with the NCLT for avoidance of the same. If the NCLT is of the view that the transaction was a preferential transaction, it can pass various types of orders as set out in Section 44, in effect neutralising the transaction.The court considered the following issues in the writ petition: i. Whether a RP can continue to act beyond the approval of the Resolution Plan? ii. Whether an avoidance application can be heard and adjudicated after the approval of the Resolution Plan? iii. Who would get the benefit of an adjudication of the avoidance application after the approval of the Resolution Plan.Referring to the provisions of the code, the bench said that an avoidance application for any preferential transaction is meant to give some benefit to the creditors of the Corporate Debtor and the benefit is not meant for the Corporate Debtor in its new avatar, after the approval of the Resolution Plan. The court said:”Moreover, an RP cannot continue to file applications in an indefinite manner even after the approval of a Resolution Plan under Section 31. The role of a RP is finite in nature. He or she cannot continue to act on behalf of the Corporate Debtor once the Plan is approved and the new management takes over. To continue as RP indefinitely even beyond the approval of the Resolution Plan would be contrary to the purpose and intent behind appointment of a RP. The Resolution Professional (RP), as the name itself suggests has to be a person who would enable the resolution. The role of the RP is not adjudicatory but administrative in nature. Thus, the RP cannot continue beyond an order under Section 31 of the IBC, as the CIRP comes to an end with a successful Resolution Plan having been approved. This is however subject to any clause in the Resolution Plan to the contrary, permitting the RP to function for any specific purpose beyond the approval of the Resolution Plan. In the present case, no such clause has been shown to exist.””There is a START line and FINISH line for the Resolution process. Section 23 clearly stipulates that the role of the RP is to `manage’ the affairs of the Corporate Debtor `during’ the resolution process and NOT thereafter. In fact, until the enactment of the proviso to Section 23, which was introduced with effect from 28th December, 2019, the RP’s mandate concluded with the CIRP. The proviso introduced, firstly in 2018 and thereafter in 2020, merely extended the mandate of the RP till the approval of the Resolution Plan under Section 31(1) or appointment of liquidator under Section 34. This itself makes it amply clear that the RP’s authority is limited in nature and in any event, cannot extend beyond the order passed under Section 31. Thus, there is an outer limit for the functioning of the RP under the proviso to Section 23(1). The continuation of a RP or filing of an application for the purpose of prosecuting an avoidance application as a `Former RP’ is beyond the contemplation of the IBC. The RP ceases to be one after an order under Section 31 is passed. The RP does not have any connection whatsoever with the new Management which takes over the erstwhile Corporate Debtor, after the approval of the Resolution Plan. Any other interpretation could lead to a situation where an RP could be a ‘Former RP’ for years together without any definite end date. Under Section 23, the CIRP period is a specific period and cannot be read as a perpetual period or an indefinite period. The wording of the proviso in fact W.P.(C) 8705/2019 Page 34 of 40 makes it further clear that the CIRP process in fact comes to an end immediately upon the RP submitting the Plan itself.”The court said that after the Resolution Plan is approved and the new management takes over, the manner in which the affairs of the company are to be run is the sole prerogative of the new management. While setting aside the NCLT order, the court said: “In the statutory scheme, the RP cannot continue to act on behalf of the Company under the title of `Former RP’. That would be violative of the legislative intention and the statutory prescription. Their continuation beyond the closure of the resolution process would in effect mean an interference in the conduct and management of the company, which is now having its own independent Board, managerial personnel, etc. The RP’s role cannot continue once the Resolution Plan is approved and the successful Resolution Applicant takes charge of the Corporate Debtor.”CASE: VENUS RECRUITERS PRIVATE LIMITED vs. UNION OF INDIA [W.P.(C) 8705/2019]CORAM: Justice Prathiba M.

Louis CK attacks Parkland shooting survivors, ‘gender-neutral’ language in new stand-up

first_imgBen Gabbe/Getty Images for Tribeca TV Festival(NEW YORK) — Embattled comedian Louis CK, who admitted last year to sexually harassing women in the past, appears to be going after survivors of the Parkland school massacre as well as those who identify as gender neutral, according to leaked audio of a new stand-up routine.The audio was leaked over the weekend and purports to be from a set CK performed earlier this month at a comedy club in Long Island, NY. A request for comment from the comedian was not immediately returned to ABC News.In the set, CK first brings up the harassment allegations. Multiple women accused the comedian of sexual misconduct, including masturbating in front of them without their consent. He later said via statement, “these stories are true” and wrote that he’d brought “pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.”In the new routine, CK recounts his trials during 2018, saying, “Ever have an entire year that sucks.”He added a joke that his mom sent him the New York Times article, where the women first accused CK of the harassment, saying, “Mom, that’s not a good f—– article.”He later turned to the survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting, who have helped to organize rallies and marches all across the country in support of gun control after 17 students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were killed by shooter Nikolas Cruz.“How does that make you interesting? You didn’t get shot,” CK can be heard saying. “You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I got to listen to you talking?”He then adds, “Everybody gets upset when there’s a shooting at a high school, I don’t see why it’s worse than anybody else dying, I don’t.”CK also went after those who identify as gender-neutral.After explaining that gender-neutral people prefer to be identified as “they,” he responds, “Oh okay, okay. ‘You should address me as ‘there,’ because I identify as a location.”Reaction to the leaked audio was fast and furious.Activist and author Emily Heath wrote, “#LouisCK’s new set apparently has a section attacking #nonbinary people. He thinks it’s wrong to use “they” as a singular pronoun. I, on the other hand, think it’s wrong to sexually assault people.” and “Seriously, if #nonbinary people are upsetting a serial sexual harasser like #LouisCK so much, then that’s a good sign.”Fred Guttenberg, father of Parkland victim Jaime Guttenberg, wrote, “To anyone who knows Louis CK, please deliver this message for me. My daughter was killed in the Parkland shooting. My son ran from the bullets. My wife and I deal with loss everyday. Why don’t you come to my house and try out your new pathetic jokes?”He also linked out to a story titled, “Louis CK’s leaked set reveals he’s a piece of s—.”Podcaster and Stoneman Douglas alum Jeremy Wein added, “17 people died at my high school, my friends brother watched his friends die in front of him. F— you Louis. Seriously if you are a club in NYC still welcoming this POS into your room, f— you too.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
