The protest movement has attempted to shame brands that it claims have dodged UK taxes. A series of actions began on 27 October last year when Vodafone’s Oxford Street store was closed by protesters. Similar shut-downs have occurred across the country since then and following The March for the Alternative on Saturday 26 March a number of stores including Topshop and Boots on Oxford Street were closed and Fortnum and Mason occupied.But the net result of this action on consumer perception has been zero. If we look at five of the key brands targeted; Vodafone, Boots, Tesco and the Arcadia Group’s BHS and Topshop there has been no real movement in their corporate reputation score since the protests started with the combined score of the five being +77 back on Oct 24 and a near identical +78 this Monday.So UK Uncut has either failed to interest people in its campaign or interested them but not moved their views of the targeted companies. The attention scores for those brands show that it is the first of those problems that they have. Once again we see that there has been no significant change in the number of people hearing anything (either positive or negative) about the brands. We can conclude that the actions of UK Uncut are going largely unnoticed (at least in terms of the specific brands it targets) and therefore cannot impact on the general populations’ views.Stephan Shakespeare is chief executive of YouGov.

James Haskell late hit on Jordan Crane

first_imgThursday Apr 3, 2008 James Haskell late hit on Jordan Crane This massive late tackle by the James Haskell went unpunished this past weekend in the Guinness Premiership match against the Leicester Tigers at Welford Road. The London Wasps man lined up opposing number eight Jordan Crane and let rip, despite the ball having been passed long before the hit. Not only was the tackle late, but Haskell pretty much led with the shoulder and should have been penalised for it. Somehow the ref missed it though, and actually awarded a penalty to Wasps for a different infringement in the same passage of play.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The relationships between each other and the context in which they find themselves are the basis for imagining the experience of a beach address. We proposed a simple house, essentially unpretentious, but with a strong and imposing character.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiTwo volumes mark the corner: a wooden box placed inside another apparent concrete box marks the social area. This simple set of volumes with pure materials added to the charred wood that covers the intimate volume and balanced with the lightness of the glass cloth in the social area, brings a contemporary character to the building.

Unprecedented wave of arrests in radio journalist’s murder

first_imgNews RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” HondurasAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more HondurasAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Honduras Help by sharing this information to go furthercenter_img Reports RSF_en Five alleged members of a gang suspected of abducting and murdering radio HRN journalist Alfredo Villatoro were arrested in a police raid in Cofradía, in the northern department of Cortés, on 27 May. The arrests bring to 10 the number of people now charged in connection with the murder of Villatoro, whose body was found on 15 May.The latest arrests came two days after major demonstrations by media and journalists’ organizations in five Honduran cities in protest against impunity for acts of violence against media personnel.“We take note of the speed with which the authorities are investigating this murder, which has shaken public opinion,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The significance of such a determined police operation should not however divert attention from the need to carefully establish all the circumstances surrounding Villatoro’s murder and the role of all those involved. “We call on the authorities to deploy the same resources in the 28 other – mostly unsolved –murders of journalists which, according to the National Human Rights Commission (CONADEH) have taken place since 2003 (23 of them since the June 2009 coup), and in all the other cases of people who have paid with their lives for providing information, including human rights activists, lawyers, and representatives of NGOs and community organizations.”Aged 15 to 29, those arrested in the 27 May raid were named as Edgar Francisco and Osman Fernando Osorio (two brothers), Marvin Alonso Gómez, Xiomara Flores Bú and a teenage girl whose identity was not released. They finally surrendered to the police after mediation by Canal 6 journalist Edy Andino. The three men have so far been charged with criminal association and illegal carriage of firearms.Two sisters, Jessica and Katlin Zambrano, and their cousin, Marvin Enrique Oliva, were arrested a few days after the discovery of Villatoro’s body on charges of abduction and complicity. And two prison inmates, Juan Ramón Fonseca and Miguel Ángel Álvarez, have also been linked to the case. Álvarez, a police officer, is alleged to have conducted ransom negotiations with the Villatoro family by mobile phone from his prison cell.According to the Committee for Free Expression (C-Libre), a Reporters Without Borders partner organization, suspects were arrested in two other cases in March. Former police officer David Lanza Valdez was arrested in Cortés department in connection with the August 2010 murder of journalist Israel Zelaya Díaz. And in Colón department, Gabriel Menocal Vargas was arrested for the murder of journalist Fausto Elio Hernández, who was hacked to death with a machete on 11 March of this year.But the investigation into the murder of journalist David Meza Montesinos in March 2010 in La Ceiba has ground to a halt since the main suspect was released at the end of 2011.

A Closed letter from Human Rights Organisations to the Saudi leadership

first_img RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa Amnesty International (AI) Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) CIVICUS World Alliance for Citizen Participation Front Line Defenders (FLD)Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR)Human Rights Watch (HRW)International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) under the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders Reporters without Borders (RSF) World Organization Against Torture (OMCT) under the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more We are gravely concerned about the worsening situation of human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia as they continue to face severe risks for their peaceful activism. Many of them are still in detention on fabricated charges where they are inadequately protected from torture and other ill-treatment, and subjected to inhumane conditions. The right to freedom of expression is violated, as they are banned from freely expressing their opinions on the Internet or through other media, and face threats, intimidation, arbitrary arrests, prosecutions and harassment as a result. Both the cyber-crime and counter-terror laws, adopted in 2007 and 2014 respectively, are arbitrarily applied to target peaceful human rights defenders. We, the undersigned human rights organizations, are writing to ask you during this holy month of Ramadan, that you release all the detained human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience, including Walid Abu Al-Khair, Dr. Mohammed Al-Qahtani, Dr. Abdullah Al-Hamid, Dr. Abdulkarim Al-Khodr, Raif Badawi, Mohammad Al-Bajadi, Fadel Al-Manasef, Fawzan Al-Harbi, Sheikh Sulaiman Al-Rashudi, Issa Al-Nukheifi and all of their colleagues. This move will constitute a positive step and reassure the international community, as all of these activists have not committed any offense whatsoever and they have simply exercised their right to peaceful and legitimate work in the defense and promotion of human rights.We are very concerned about the physical and psychological integrity of these human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience in the wake of the many documented reports of their ill-treatment and lack of access to necessary health care. We consider that the situation of detained human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia is inconsistent with the United Nations provisions set forth in the “Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.”This should also comprise the right for local human rights organizations to work legally in a safe and enabling environment without fear of reprisals and free from any form of intimidation and harassment. This requires the abolition of all laws that unlawfully limit or restrict freedom of expression through the traditional media or social media networks. As noted above, the cybercrime and counter-terrorism laws, in particular, have been applied in an arbitrary manner to silence human rights defenders and to unlawfully restrict freedom of expression. While we recognize the rights and duties of all states to fight terrorism, we believe as human rights organizations that it is essential to confront such threats in a manner which respects human rights and complies with Saudi Arabia’s obligations under international law. That means that human rights defenders must not be prevented or impeded from exercising their rights and responsibilities to defend human rights. We fear that the absence of a safe and enabling environment for the defense and promotion of human rights, and the repression and imprisonment of human rights defenders, has contributed some to resort to violence. We also strongly believe that a real national dialogue with the entire spectrum of peaceful views in the Kingdom is the safest way to accommodate and contain differences.Your majesty, you mentioned in your meeting with Saudi Arabian human rights bodies on 22 May 2015, that you are working to “achieve justice, and to ensure freedom of expression, and to address the causes of division and its reasons, and not to discriminate, as there is no difference between a citizen and another, or between one region and another, for sons of the nation are equal in rights and duties.” Unfortunately, these words have not yet reflected in practice. We urge you today to ensure that the values and principles you have clearly espoused and called for are upheld in reality.Finally, we call on you to guarantee in all circumstances that all human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia are able to carry out their peaceful and legitimate human rights activities without fear of reprisals and free of intimidation, including judicial harassment.

New record for patients on hospital trolleys

first_imgLinkedin Email WhatsApp Facebook University Hospital LimerickA RECORD high for the number of patients waiting on trolleys at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) was set this week, when figures from the INMO showed there were 70 admitted patients waiting for a bed.This is the highest number since the nursing union began counting the numbers of waiting patients. On Tuesday, 46 people were on trolleys in the Emergency Department and a further 24 were waiting for an in-patient bed in overflow wards.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The numbers had decreased to 64 during the week.Limerick Labour TD Jan O’Sullivan said she is “calling for funding to open all available beds in hospitals in the region, for extra step-down beds where they can be provided and for additional Home Care Packages. It needs an urgent interim response from Government.”“No other region has the pressure we have and all other regions are better resourced for the populations they serve”.In a statement, hospital management said “UL Hospitals Group sincerely regrets that any patient has to face long waits in our emergency department.“The emergency department at UHL is one of the busiest in the country and the numbers presenting continue to increase year on year. Attendances to the end of December 2018 were 72,037 – an increase of 6.2 percent on 2017.The statement said the emergency department was exceptionally busy in recent days.“In the week between Monday, February 18 and Sunday, February 24, a total of 1,453 presented to the emergency department. In the 24-hour period to midnight on Monday, February 25, a total of 210 people attended the Emergency Department. We continue to see high volumes of frail elderly with complex medical conditions and regret that anyone faces long wait times while we prioritise the sickest patients. The Department is also seeing high volumes of surgical patients at present.“We are again asking members of the public to please consider all their care options before presenting to the emergency department at UHL.Injury units in Ennis and Nenagh are open from 8am to 8pm, and St John’s is open from 8am to 6pm for the treatment of broken bones, dislocations, sprains strains, wounds, scalds and minor burns.“UHL has just over 450 inpatient beds; this is recognised as not being sufficient for the needs of the Mid West Region. The Group welcomes the commitment to increasing bed capacity at the hospital,” the statement concluded.

While inventory shortages, tight credit access, and lower than average salaries have made for a bleak picture for young adults, the speakers largely agreed that these represent temporary setbacks as the economy makes its way to stable ground.”It’s not that young people don’t want to purchase homes, it’s that they are delaying the purchase,” said Lisa Sturtevant, VP of research for the National Housing Conference. “Many of the reasons millennials are not forming households or making purchases are economic, so as the economy improves, we should see this group become more of a force in the housing market.”Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for, agreed, adding that members of Gen Y accounted for 37 percent of home shoppers over the summer and are expected to make up two-thirds of household formations in the coming years. Smoke also noted that from June through September, more than half of adults between the ages of 21 and 34 visited real estate websites or mobile apps.

The bench comprising of Justices Tarlok Singh Chauhan and Jyotsna Rewal Dua observed thus while dismissing two writ petitions. The petitioners in this case had challenged the notices by the Local authorities requiring them to vacate the houses which was temporarily allotted to them. While considering the petitions, the bench noted that the houses were allotted to them temporarily with clear understanding that the same would be vacated by them on 30.5.2019. Observing that their possession is unauthorized the bench said: The case in hand shows that frivolous litigation is sought to be prolonged by the petitioners and the same is a calculated venture involving no risk situation. After all, one has only to engage professionals to prolong litigation so as to deprive the rights of the parties and enjoy the fruits of illegalities. It is on account of such frivolous litigation that the court dockets are overflowing. The court also referred to various Supreme court judgment denouncing the abuse of process of the court by unscrupulous litigants. It said: It is because of such false and incoherent pleas by the parties due to which the judicial system in the country is chocked and such litigants consuming courts time for a wrong cause. Efforts are made by the parties to steal a march over their rivals by resorting to false and incoherent statements made before the Court. This clearly is the abuse of the process of the Court as the intent of the petitioners is to deceive and mislead the Court that too by taking shelter of falsehood, misrepresentation and suppression facts in the court proceedings. Materialism, opportunism and malicious intent have over­shadowed the old ethos of litigative values for small gains. This Court is required to maintain strictness, vigilance over the abuse of the process of the Court and curb such tendencies with iron hands. While dismissing the writ petitions, the bench further observed: “The judicial system has been abused and virtually brought to its knees by unscrupulous litigants like the petitioners in this case. It has to be remembered that Court’s proceedings are sacrosanct and should not be polluted by unscrupulous litigants. The petitioners have abused the process of the Court.”Case no.: CWP Nos. 2451/2020 & 2452/2020Case name: Salma  vs. State of H.PCoram: Justices Tarlok Singh Chauhan and Jyotsna Rewal Dua Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more
