Italian gets 15 weeks ban for gouging at World Cup

first_imgLeonardo Ghiraldini of Italy has been suspended for 15 weeks after acknowledging that he had been guilty of an act of foul play contrary to Law 10(4)(m).Following a review of broadcast footage, Ghiraldini was cited by Independent Citing Commissioner Peter Larter (ENG) under Law 10.4(m) acts contrary to good sportsmanship; in this case, for contact with the eye or the eye area of an Irish player in the Rugby World Cup 2011 Pool C match against Ireland in Dunedin on 2 October. Ghiraldini admitted a breach of Law 10.4(m), but denied his actions were deliberate.Ghiraldini was suspended by Independent Judicial Officer Bruce Squire QC (NZL) in accordance with the Rugby World Cup 2011 Disciplinary process.Having conducted a detailed review of all the evidence available, including all broadcast angles and additional evidence from the Player and submissions from his legal representative, the Judicial Officer found the contact with the eyes of the Irish player to be a deliberate act on the part of Ghiraldini and categorised it as top end offending which has an entry point of 24 weeks suspension. Ghiraldini was accordingly suspended from all Rugby up to and including 17 January 2012. He is free to resume playing on 18 January 2012.The player has 48 hours in which to appeal from the time he was informed of the decision. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img The Judicial Officer also took the view there should be an increase on the suspension period prescribed by the entry point for deterrent purposes, noting that increased penalties had not been reflected in any significant reduction in offending of this kind. However, taking into account particular aspects of the offending in this case and a range of mitigating factors, principally Ghiraldini’s previously unblemished record, the Judicial Officer reduced the period of suspension otherwise arrived at to 15 weeks.last_img read more

USDA Quarterly Stocks Report Good News for Corn Prices

first_img Previous articlePreparing for the AporkalypseNext articleUSDA Announces Grants for Producers of Specialty Crops Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Sep 30, 2012 SHARE The corn market Friday was the beneficiary of yet another USDA report that wasn’t quite what the majority of analysts expected. It was a good day in the markets to close out another rocky week, and the move followed the government’s quarterly Grain Stocks report. The corn figure came in 193 million bushels under the WASDE projection of just 16 days earlier, and as analyst Logan Burgess of Grain Hedge explained, it was then off to the races.“We did have corn stocks come in below the one billion bushel mark at 988 million and I think that one billion is kind of psychological number that people were watching. It was about 10 percent below market expectations.”The wheat market got a bullish report too. The average trade guess for wheat stocks was 2.281 billion bushels but USDA came in under that at 2.103. Soybeans also traded higher, getting a boost from the corn and wheat markets despite stocks at 169 million bushels, larger than analyst estimates.“The trade was expecting about 131 million bushels so accordingly beans are kind of lagging behind corn and wheat right,” Burgess said at midday of Friday’s trade. “Actually soybeans were kind of an unchanged trade early in the session but it looks like we have some buying coming now. Early in the trade session we saw a really wide range printed in the first five minutes of the bean trade. It kind of moved sideways and in just the last 30 to 45 minutes here we’ve drifted higher.”So, who was off kilter coming into the report, the trade analysts, or USDA?“I think that’s the million dollar question! Some of the chatter has been this higher than expected soybean reflection was kind of due to the fact that USDA had previously underestimated the size of the 2011 bean crop, so they might be making up some room there, but you have to trade these numbers. Whether right or wrong they’re going to move the trade and I think that’s what’s going on here today.”[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/09/Logan-Burgess-on-September-report.mp3|titles=Logan Burgess on September report]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/09/Logan-Burgess-on-September-report.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter USDA Quarterly Stocks Report Good News for Corn Prices Home News Feed USDA Quarterly Stocks Report Good News for Corn Priceslast_img read more

25x’25 Says Latest RFS Proposal Would Harm Advanced Biofuels Sector

first_img SHARE 25x’25 Says Latest RFS Proposal Would Harm Advanced Biofuels Sector Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleBeck’s Why I Farm Becoming National MovementNext articleFarm Bill Push Moves to Social Media Andy Eubank Home Energy 25x’25 Says Latest RFS Proposal Would Harm Advanced Biofuels Sector The group 25 by ’25 says it’s not just corn ethanol that will take a hit under the Environmental Protection Agency proposal to reduce the amount of biofuel to be blended in the nation’s fuel supply under the Renewable Fuel Standard in 2014. In fact – the group says advanced biofuels face what could be a fatal blow before the sector has a chance to meet the high goals Congress envisioned with the RFS was authorized six years ago. The Energy Independence and Security Act called for a gradual increase of cleaner burning fuels to be added each year – reaching 36-billion gallons of renewable fuels being blended into the nation’s fuel supply by the year 2022. More than 21-billion gallons of that is to come from advanced biofuels. But 25 by ’25 notes the EPA proposal – which is subject to a 60-day public comment period – would reverse the progress being made by the sector – shrinking the advanced biofuel requirement to 2.2-billion gallons in 2014. It was supposed to be 2.75-billion gallons this year – which 25 by ’25 says is achievable. According to 25 by ’25 – this proposed cutback sends a chilling message to the enterprises that have invested billions of dollars into the development of next-generation biofuels – including cellulosic biofuels.25 by ’25 admits the development of cellulosic biofuels hasn’t met the expectations set in the energy bill of 2007 – but says the industry is on the verge of a breakthrough – with three major production facilities set to open next year. The group says these facilities and smaller ones now operating and on the brink of commercial production – as well as the research that will lead to a wave of advanced biofuels that can reduce emissions by 60-percent or more when compared to fossil fuel equivalents are left in a vulnerable position by the EPA proposal. The 25 by ’25 Alliance strongly believes the proposal would essentially close the market to advanced renewable fuels, undermine investment and starve the innovative biofuels companies of the capital needed to bring these new technologies to the American consumer.The group says all who seek more choices in transportation fuels and a cleaner, more secure U.S. energy future need to let EPA know this proposal endangers the very path to that future.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Nov 28, 2013 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The Task Force was established in January to examine the proper scope of executive power and its relationship to legislative authority. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27), a member of the Judiciary Committee who also serves on the Task Force, questioned the witnesses at today’s hearing and released the following statement:This hearing offers the opportunity to reemphasize the need and historical precedent for the President’s executive actions on immigration. In my questioning today, I raised the example of Andrea, a young woman I met at an Immigration Action workshop I hosted in my district. Andrea was brought to the U.S. from Mexico at the age of two. She became the first in her family to attend college, and dreams of being a teacher. She is an exemplary immigrant, and should be able to continue her studies without fear of being deported or torn away from loved ones for a choice she never made. Fortunately, the DACA program recognizes that there is a difference between Andrea and a hardened criminal, and the Executive branch has always had the power – and responsibility – to prioritize one over the other. Instead of holding hearings meant to attack the President for acting within his authority, Congress should be focused instead on how we can support families with deep roots in our communities who are working to create a better future for themselves and their children. That is what the DACA and DAPA programs will do. They are legal, necessary, smart, and effective. I am confident that the Supreme Court will side with both me and President Obama and uphold these programs as legitimate and proper uses of executive action.”On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced a series of executive orders that would defer deportation for approximately 4.7 million aspiring Americans living in the U.S. The largest initiatives included an expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the creation of a new Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program. The implementation of both programs has been suspended until ongoing litigation is resolved. The Supreme Court agreed in January to hear oral arguments in U.S. v. Texas, a challenge to DACA and DAPA out of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

SCBA Plea Against SOP For Hybrid Hearings : Supreme Court Calls For Minutes Of Meeting From SC Registry

A Bench headed by Justice SK Kaul took into account the submission of Senior Advocate and SCBA President Vikas Singh that consultation with the Bar had not taken place before a decision was taken for the hybrid-style hearings. The Top Court accordingly directed the Registry to place before it the report and the Minutes of Meeting pertaining to the discussions that had taken place leading up to the SOP on hybrid hearings. In today’s hearing, Singh submitted before the Court that there were two aspects of the matter. “There is a situation where the notification under the Disaster Management Act is in place. Till it’s present, nobody will have a say as it overrides everything. After the period under DMA gets over, the decision has to be made with consultation between the Bar and the Bench. Nobody can take the decision unilaterally”, averred Singh. He went on to highlight that the convenience of some could not be used to rule what was correct and what was not correct. “Some members of the Bar may find it convenient, but Bar as a whole needs to decide. Judges come to a sterilized Court. They are 99% protected because of glass shields etc. Today’s report shows that people are becoming irresponsible, I don’t expect the Bar to be that way”, stated Singh. Singh also contended that while senior lawyers and law firms found it convenient, the average lawyer or the average client would not be placed similarly. Further, he stated that lawyers were basically daily wagers and did not want the people to die of starvation. “Today, COVID-19 is not killing people. If experts’ opinions are to be taken into consideration, then even experts have taken a call that 200 people in closed spaces can congregate, such as during weddings. We can take a break, we have the leisure. But the average lawyer cannot take a break”, continued Singh. At this juncture, Justice Kaul observed that before the virtual hearings had commenced, everyone was skeptical about appearing through video conferencing. However, now even State Counsels and young lawyers had begun appearing, and that people had gotten used to it. Singh then reiterated his submission that as the report had been made without the consultation of the Bar, it had to go. “Till then we can have hybrid. But, it’s impossible to manage with this SOP. No discussion has taken place. I have even put this on Affidavit. We had a discussion on 1st March with the CJI and on 2nd, I wrote a letter. But, that letter has not even been mentioned”, concluded Singh. The matter will now be heard next Tuesday. The plea, filed through Advocate Rahul Kaushik, states that the impugned SOP dated March 5 has been issued by the Registry without consultation with the Bar. “Bar is an equal stakeholder in the dispensation of the Justice Delivery System and the suggestions given by the Bar ought to have been taken into consideration”, the plea says. The plea avers that in the meeting of the Executive Committee of the SCBA with the CJI, held on March 1, regarding the physical/hybrid hearing, it was assured that the needful would be done by the Registry expeditiously taking into consideration the suggestions given by the Executive Committee. However, it is claimed, that the impugned SOP has been issued “unilaterally” by the Registry. The plea further submits that there is general feeling in the Bar that for the last few years, the Supreme Court Registry has been issuing Circulars without taking the Bar into confidence, even though such circulars directly affect the Lawyers practicing. Supreme Court of India had issued its Standard Operating Procedure dated 5th March, directing resumption of hybrid court hearings from 15th March. The Court issued several directions regarding its functioning in consideration of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and suggestions given by the Bar Associations. The Court devised a pilot scheme to hear cases in the hybrid mode on an experimental basis. According to the scheme, the final hearing and regular matters listed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will be heard in the hybrid mode , after consideration of the number of parties in a matter and the limited capacity of the Court rooms. However all other matters, including those listed on Mondays and Fridays will continue to be heard through video -conferencing mode. On Saturday, the SCBA decided to not accept the said SOP as it was prepared without taking into confidence the Bar, despite the assurance given to them by CJI Bobde in the meeting held on March 1st 2021. In its plea, the Association insists that hybrid hearing should have been for all days i.e. from Monday to Friday. However, in the impugned SOP, it said, “there is no provision for hybrid hearing for the matters listed on Monday and Friday, i.e. Miscellaneous days when primarily fresh matters are listed.” The plea also raises the issue of oral mentioning before the Supreme Court, a practice that was prevalent during pre-Covid days. It states, “For around last one year this Hon’ble Court is working through virtual hearing and there is no provision for Oral mentioning in Standard Operating Procedure dated 05.03.2021 and as a result lawyers would still not be able to make Oral mentioning.” It states that a large number of urgent matters are going unheard because of the peculiar system of listing, i.e. sending an email to the Mentioning Registrar giving the reasons for urgency. The Association said that most of the High Courts, including the Delhi High Court, have either started holding Physical Courts or are in the process of starting Physical Courts, and it is high time that like every other institution, the Supreme Court also restores normalcy and begins physical hearings with adequate precautions like temperature check at entry points, wearing of masks and maintenance of social distancing.
