Dan Carter ready to play first game in New Zealand in five years, for old club Southbridge

first_imgFriday Jul 3, 2020 Dan Carter ready to play first game in New Zealand in five years, for old club Southbridge Upon Dan Carter’s return to playing for his home rugby club Southbridge, the legendary fly-half shared a photo of the last time he ran out for them.ADVERTISEMENTThe All Blacks great is set to feature this Saturday against West Melton at Southbridge Domain in the Ellesmere Premier Competition. It will be his first match since playing for the Kobelco Steelers in February, before the Top League season in Japan was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the first time of playing in New Zealand for five years.The last time he starred for Southbridge was in 2014, in fairly similar circumstances to these. He was returning from a six-month sabbatical in June that year, and played 40 minutes against Glenmark in front of a bumper crowd. The week later he played 80 minutes and kicked 14 points against Burnham-Dunsandel-Irwell.Only a week after that, he came on from the bench for the Crusaders against the Hurricanes, and was playing in the Super Rugby final at the beginning of August.It is hoped that the 38-year-old’s outing this weekend will help him prepare for his much-anticipated debut for the Blues in Super Rugby Aotearoa. He has had to settle for being a waterboy for the first three rounds of the season, but has taken advantage of the Blues’ bye week to prepare for the visit to Orangetheory Stadium to take on his former side the Crusaders in round five.Both teams are flying high in the competition this year, and this would be a fitting game for Carter to make his return to Super Rugby. In the meantime, his focus will be on playing for his home club this Saturday, where supporters will flock in their thousands to see the legend play.ADVERTISEMENTThe fly-half is also following in the footsteps of fellow All Black Ardie Savea, who played for his home club Oriental Rongotai during the Hurricanes’ bye week, as he gains match fitness after a knee injury.

Building in Cuba is a complex endavour. For an architect, is an ever ascending challenge, that be by the perennial absence of materials, elevated costs or the commissioner´s reluctance to work on contemporary proposals. A cuban architect is an utopian character, whose work is not a necessity, neither aesthetic nor conceptual. Hustling in this hostile environment, Albor challenges reality guided by tis believe that from within the crisis, their architectural porposal can thrive and bloom.Assuming the design and completion of a dwelling that fulfill every requisite, at the same time highlighting itself from the context and using nothing more than the most common and accesible of materials, is an challening feat; specially due to the aforementioned materials are often regarded as the resources for the less wealthy.This particular commision stated from the beginning that the final value of the estate double the maount invested on purchase and execution.Save this picture!Concept 01.

No Bull Market for 2015

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News No Bull Market for 2015 seminar wrapTom FritzThe futures market was the topic of the HAT seminar at the Indiana/Illinois Farm Show on Thursday. Presenters Jim Riley, Tom Fritz, and Mike Silver were in agreement that corn and soybean markets in 2015 will not look anything like they did in 2014. Fritz said he sees corn prices ranging from the upper $3 range to no more than $4.50, “It is not that we don’t have demand; we do. Our livestock numbers and growing and the ethanol industry is profitable, but I have never seen a strong market powered by domestic demand alone.” He said export demand will be good in 2015, but not good enough to move the market much higher than it currently is, “US export sales will be good. I expect we will see a pickup in January when Brazil stops shipping corn to the world market. But, the reality is, we have enough supply to meet the demand.” Fritz added, with the current carryover, the market will not need to buy corn acres in 2015.In the case of soybeans, Fritz said a possible record Brazilian crop could send prices tumbling, “It is scary — I am really scared. If the Brazilian crop is as good as some are predicting, we could see soybean prices fall sharply.” He said seeing contracts in the $8 range would not be out of the question. Both Riley and Silver see a soybean top of $11 in 2015 but would not speculate on how low soybeans could go.Mike Silver, with Kokomo Grain, said continuing transportation problems and a profitable ethanol sector will keep Indiana cash prices steady in 2015. Jim Riley said he does not expect another record crop in the coming year, “My experience is that we do not have record crops in consecutive years.” He speculated that growers might cut back on seed and fertilizer inputs as profit margins tighten in 2015.  He also said many fields in Indiana suffered serious compaction because of the wet harvest which would reduce yields in 2015.All three agreed that the low is in for the 2014 crop and warned that storing a large part of the crop may not be a good strategy. “There is not a lot of carry in the market right now,” said Silver. He urged growers to look for opportunities to sell on price rallies.

PepsiCo goes Beyond Meat in new partnership

first_img WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest TAGS  Previous articlex2VOL Receives District Administration’s Top EdTech Products of 2020 AwardNext articleDrive Shack Inc. Announces Collaboration with Professional Golfer Rory McIlroy and its New Indoor Entertainment Golf Experience, Puttery Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest PepsiCo and Beyond Meat are creating a joint venture to develop snacks and drinks made from plant-based proteins. The companies didn’t reveal what kinds of products they will make Tuesday, saying they’re still in development. But the collaboration sent Beyond Meat’s shares to their largest single-day gain since they began trading in 2019, jumping by more than $62 each to $221. Pepsi’s shares remained flat. The join venture gives Pepsi access to one of the leading plant-based meat companies at a time when consumers are increasingly cutting back on meat consumption and looking for healthier, more sustainable foods. Beyond Meat’s burgers, sausages and chicken, which are made from pea protein, are sold worldwide, including at Starbucks in China and Pizza Hut in the U.S. Beyond Meat gets access to to Pepsi’s distribution system and broad product line. Pepsi, in addition to drinks, makes Fritos, Cheetos and Tostitos, as well as Matador beef jerky. It’s a shot in the arm for El Segundo, California-based Beyond Meat, which had been struggling to convince investors of its growth opportunities as competition increased. Beyond Meat shares plummeted in November after retail sales slowed and McDonald’s hinted that it might work with another supplier on a new plant-based burger for the U.S. market. Food companies are increasingly jumping into the plant-based space. In 2019, Chobani introduced coconut milk-based yogurt and Nestle brought out plant-based burgers and ground meat. Meat giant Tyson Foods, which used to own a stake in Beyond Meat, now has its own line of plant-based meats. Consumers are eager to try those products. U.S. sales of plant-based meat jumped 45% in the 52 weeks ending Jan. 16; traditional meat sales rose 19% in the same period, according to NielsenIQ, a data firm. Total U.S. sales of plant-based proteins — including products like almond milk and plant-based eggs — jumped 19% over the last year, outpacing the 14% increase in all food sales. “Plant-based proteins represent an exciting growth opportunity for us, a new frontier in our efforts to build more sustainable food system,” said Ram Krishnan, PepsiCo’s global chief commercial officer. Financial terms of the deal weren’t released. The joint venture will be managed through a new entity called The Planet Partnership.

Rosen announced that Quicken Loans and the United States and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) reached an agreement in the case of United States v. Quicken Loans Inc., stating that Judge Mark A. Goldsmith entered an order dismissing the lawsuit. The case originated in 2015, when the U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit claiming that Quicken Loans had originated hundreds of FHA-backed loans between September 2007 and December 2011 that were not eligible for the program because of Quicken Loans’ lenders allegedly overstating borrowers’ income so they could qualify for the loans, Crain’s Detroit Business reports.“This resolution is in the interests not only of the parties, but of the home-buying public,” said Rosen in a statement. “All parties fully understand the important role the FHA program plays in helping middle-class Americans access home financing, and this resolution allows the parties to move ahead together with that mission and to ensure their future relationship. I commend the parties for investing the time and effort through this mediation, which will help support the continuation and the strengthening of the partnership between Quicken Loans and HUD in jointly serving American homeowners.”“Today, HUD reached an important resolution with Quicken Loans so that, together, we may continue offering safe and sustainable mortgage financing to qualified, creditworthy borrowers,” said Amy Thompson, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs. “FHA relies on its partnerships with lenders, such as Quicken Loans, to advance home buying opportunities for Americans, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Quicken Loans.” “We have always been proud of our growing participation in the FHA program. Every day teachers, police officers, factory workers and so many others who are the backbone of our communities, utilize Quicken Loans for this very important loan program,” said Jay Farner, Quicken Loans CEO. “Now that this dispute is behind us, we look forward to cultivating and expanding our relationship with both FHA and HUD so we can increase Americans’ access to home financing and home ownership,” Farner added.

COVID-19 has given rise to some serious challenges to the Justice Delivery System in our country. The Supreme Court of India, High Courts of our country, and Subordinate Courts are putting their best feet forward, in ensuring that access to justice remains ubiquitous, even in times of a pandemic, by bringing into play, virtual courts and hearings. The Supreme Court issued various guidelines for court functioning through video-conferencing during COVID-19 pandemic in Suo Motu Writ Petition (Civil) No. 5/2020, In Re: Guidelines for Court Functioning Through Video Conferencing During COVID-19 Pandemic, encouraging the use of video-conferencing and reducing the need of the physical presence of all stakeholders within the premises of the Courts, in order to follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and social distancing norms, issued by the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. All the High Courts and Subordinate Courts have employed video-conferencing facilities robustly so that dispensation of justice remains continual. The Jammu & Kashmir High Court has taken significant steps to ensure access and delivery of justice remain in place at all times. In the case of Court on Its Own Motion v. Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh through Secretaries, Social Welfare Department, WP(C) PIL No. 1/2020, the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir, took suo moto cognizance of the cases related to domestic violence and issued notices to the Secretary, Department of Social Welfare, Government of Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, and Member Secretary, Jammu and Kashmir State Legal Services Authority, to submit a report highlighting the steps taken regarding domestic or any other kind of violence being faced by women on account of the implementation of the COVID-19 lockdown. The Bench also issued a slew of measures for the immediate assistance of the victims which were, creation of dedicated funding to address issues of violence against women and girls as part of the COVID-19 response by the Union Territories of the Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, increased availability of call-in services to facilitate discreet reporting of abuse, increased online legal and counselling service for women and girls, designated informal safe spaces for women, immediate designation of safe spaces as shelters for women who are compelled to leave their domestic situation and these shelters must be treated as accessible shelters. In Azra Usmail v. Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir WP(C) PIL No. 4/2020 and Court on its Own Motion v. Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, WP(C) PIL No. 5/2020, the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir issued directions to the concerned district administration of Reasi to ensure that the 400 pilgrims stranded at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine, Katra, are not asked to vacate their current lodgings and their needs are fully provided for. The Court also emphasized the issue concerning the security and availability of basic facilities to the migrant workers and directed the administration to ensure that the accommodation, health, care, and the needs of the migrant workers, are addressed, in letter and spirit. The Court also took stock of the lockdown situation in the UT, and addressed issues such as the availability of essentials in the far-flung areas of Gurez, Tangdhar, Machail and Uri, to ensure the provision of care reaches the dependents of healthcare personnel, government officials engaged in COVID-19 management, adequate supply to doctors in government hospitals of sufficient quantities of personal protective equipments (PPEs) including face-shields, masks, gloves, etc., ensuring the safety of and violence against healthcare professionals and clinical establishments. Again, in Court on its Own Motion v. Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, WP(C) PIL No. 5/2020, the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir directed the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board and the Union Territory’s government to urgently take all decisions regarding the conduct of the Amarnath Yatra, keeping in view, that if infections escalate during the movement of the pilgrims, then, it would be impossible to deal with infections on the track. Eventually, the Amarnath Yatra, 2020, was cancelled after the observations made by the Court in the afore-mentioned order. The High Court of Jammu & Kashmir also observed that access to justice is a fundamental right and cannot be impeded. It has to be ensured to every citizen and courts are required to remain accessible at all times. The Court directed the Home Secretary, Jammu & Kashmir, to apprise the court about the impact of the restrictions on e-connectivity of the courts. The Jammu & Kashmir High Court has also been directing various concerned authorities to formulate reports and apprise the Court about the issues of welfare, safety, basic needs of the J&K residents and others, and also taking note of inadequate status reports and lack of measures. The Court has also been directing the concerned authorities to file reports regarding steps taken with regard to prisoners in Jammu and Kashmir who are lodged in the Union Territory and other parts of India, in compliance with the directions passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Suo Motu Writ Petition (C) No. 1/2020, In Re: Contagion of COVID-19 Virus in Prisons. The Jammu and Kashmir High Court cancelled the summer vacation which was scheduled from 8th June, 2020 to 26th June, 2020, considering the severe hardships faced by the litigants in the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, due to the impeded functioning of the Courts on account of lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The High Court has also cancelled the routine 15 days summer vacations in District and Subordinate Courts in the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. As the Jammu & Kashmir High Court has two wings, one at Jammu and one at Srinagar, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court abolished the practice of separate Court timings for summer and winter sessions for Courts, so that there is no wastage of court time. The High Court also contributed a total sum of Rs. 70 lakhs towards the PM CARES Fund and the J&K Relief Fund, to help in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. J&K Judicial Academy has also been organizing online training programmes for the Judicial Officers and Induction Trainees so that there is continuity of activities of intellectual development. Online Mediation training programmes have also been organized for the Judicial Officers and Lawyers of Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir & Ladakh. The Jammu & Kashmir High Court released guidelines for the functioning of District and Subordinate Courts and directed that matters related to Bail, Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, Maintenance, Custody of children, Matters involving Injunctions, cases for final hearings, shall be treated as exceptionally urgent matters. The High Court of Jammu & Kashmir has also been providing financial assistance to the advocates practising in various courts in the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh and also to Munshis working with advocates. The District & Subordinate Courts of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh have also been doing a commendable job in these difficult times. The Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh’s Judiciary has taken concerted steps, ensuring access to justice remains uninterrupted, which is fundamental to preserve the rule of law in the democracy envisaged by the Constitution of India. Virtual hearing is the new normal and the Courts have successfully implemented it, to ensure that the judiciary rises to face the challenges presented by COVID-19. With these commendable efforts, the virtual hearings and the future of justice look promising. Justice, physically or virtually, has to be effectively dispensed at all times, in the words of Lord Chief Justice Hewart in the case of R v Sussex Justices ex parte McCarthy ([1924) 1 KB 256, [1923] All ER Rep 233) when his lordship aptly enunciated, “Justice should not only be done but should manifestly and undoubtedly be seen to be done.” (Muneeb Rashid Malik is a final-year law student at Lloyd Law College, Delhi (NCR) and can be reached at [email protected]) Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

JGLR is the only law school run journal in India, from among 1650 law schools and over 200 law journals in the country, to have received this distinct honour. Speaking on the occasion, Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor, JGU, Dean, JGLS and the Editor-in-Chief of JGLR said, “This an incredible recognition for India and indeed for Jindal Global Law School. The flagship journal of JGLS, Jindal Global Law Review being included in the coveted and among a relatively small group of reputed international journals as a SCOPUS-Indexed journal is a testimonial to the extraordinary journey that the Law School and the Law Review has travelled in the last decade.” Founded in 2009, JGLR is a faculty-edited flagship journal of the Jindal Global Law School. It is published twice a year, with each issue curated as a themed dossier on a specific area of both historical and contemporary significance to law. As per a press note issued by JGLS, “JGLR publishes peer-reviewed interdisciplinary and critical legal scholarship— with a focus on the Global South— by academics in law and cognate disciplines that take the conventional and the creative seriously. JGLR is especially interested publishing works that expand and reimagine the boundaries of the legal discipline through innovations in method and form. JGLR expansively understands ‘law’ as an assemblage of ideas, theories, methods, concepts, norms, traditions, politics, moralities, aesthetics, doctrines, policies, pluralities, and life practices. As a space for fostering collaborative legal scholarship, alongside the standard journal article, case comments and book reviews, JGLR has published long form interviews and photo-essays.” From this year, JGLR has introduced three new occasional sections: Book Forum (conversations about a book between readers and authors)Teaching Texts (pedagogical experiences of engaging with key texts in a classroom)Review Essays (argument based analyses of a collection of books/ works) Recognising the significance of the publication of this journal in India, which was released on 8th August 2009, Professor (Dr.) Upendra Baxi endorsed the publication. In the Inaugural Issue of the Jindal Global Law Review, Professor Baxi observed, “Never before in India, and perhaps in the wider world of legal education, has a new Law School commenced its existence with the publication of a learned journal; the Jindal Global Law Review marks thus an inaugural break in the history of Indian legal education. I wish the Review all success, which is already ensured by the eminent content of the Commemorative Issue.” In appreciation of the establishment of JGU and JGLS, Honourable Mr. Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, former Judge, Supreme Court of India in his message to the Editor-in-Chief of JGLR in March 2008 observed that, “The O.P. Jindal Global University and the Jindal Global Law School are an institutional twin of terrestrial glory, sky-high and sea deep in jurisdiction and jurisprudence, a cosmic wonder of learning and wisdom in every dimension and an expanding universe of erudition embracing in its rich plurality, the art of living and the science of being. Entire humanity is its comprehensive constituency; search for truth in its limitless infinity and exalted excellence are its supreme ambition. May this tryst with divine noesis be fulfilled in the sublime century of ever-escalating achievements. Law and life will reach their finest hour when this great goal gains profound locomotion through this unique university.” Salient Features of JGLR: Each issue serves as a themed dossier offering interdisciplinary engagement with areas of both historical and contemporary significance to lawPublishes critical legal scholarship by academics in law and cognate disciplinesSpecial focus on the Global South—as a location and a methodological orientationEncourages collaborative scholarshipProvides rigorous editorial support to emerging scholars As per the press note, “Since its founding, JGLR has been publishing on a range of conventional and critical themes, including, access to justice, Indian public law, queer politics, law and development from the BRICS perspective, environmental law and governance, comparative family law, corporate and financial law, competition law, law and feminism, and hate crimes law through the writings of some of the world’s leading scholars, jurists, and social theorists, including, Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, Professors Madhava Menon, Upendra Baxi, Jasbir Puar, Dianne Otto, Ratna Kapur, Brenda Cossman, Vikramaditya Khanna, and Marc Galanter, to name a few. The uniqueness of JGLR lies in the fact that each of its issue is a symposium on a given theme of current and historical significance to law and cognate disciplines and edited by subject specialists. Each issue, thus, emerges as a comprehensive dossier that offers critical insights into a specific field of scholarly debate. Since its inception, JGLR was envisaged as an interdisciplinary law journal that would be global in outlook while remaining attentive to the scholarly concerns and material conditions of the Global South. One of JGLR’s key recognition came by way of the Supreme Court of India citing its special double issue on “Law, Culture and Queer Politics in Neoliberal Times” (edited by Professors Oishik Sircar and Dipika Jain) in the historic decision in Navtej Johar and Oths v. Union of India. Over the years, JGLR as a space for fostering collaborative legal scholarship, has re-imagined the law journal by publishing long-form interviews and photo-essays alongside the standard journal article, case comments and book reviews. In recent years, JGLR has also carried in-depth scholarly interviews with J. Devika, Teesta Setalvad, Harsh Mander, Dr. Upendra Baxi and Dr. Prabha Kotiswaran.” Professor (Dr.) Sreejith S.G., Executive Dean, JGLS observed that “This mode of publishing ensures that the journal is plurivocal, providing representation to all voices and thoughts. It is this epistemic inclusion in its very design which makes JGLR widely-read and widely-cited”. “One of the unique features of JGLR”, says Professor (Dr.) Arun Sagar and Professor (Dr.) Oishik Sircar, Managing Editors of JGLR, “is the deep jurisprudential nature of each discourse. Each contribution is a critical inquiry into the deep structures of ideas—often self-reflective, usually critical, and mostly deconstructive. It is this commitment to knowledge production and dissemination that has given JGLR wide recognition in the scholarly circles”. JGLR Editorial Board Editor-in-Chief: C.
