Rugby’s 2020 autumn Internationals schedule taking shape Since the Wales v Scotland Six Nations match was cancelled at the last minute in mid-March, Test rugby has had to take a backseat as the sport navigates its way through the Covid-19 pandemic.More pressing issues like struggling finances, training during lockdown and restarting domestic competitions came to the fore in rugby while global events like the 15-a-side summer tours and World Sevens Series were cancelled. Yet there are promising signs regarding the return of international rugby.Super Rugby competitions in New Zealand and Australia have been followed by the Gallagher Premiership and Guinness Pro14 restarting in August. Now the 2020 autumn Internationals schedule has taken shape too.Southern foes: NZ’s Jordie Barrett passes against Australia in last year’s Rugby Championship (Getty Images)The World Rugby Council has approved the governing body’s recommendation of a longer international window later this year, with the objective of “optimising recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic for the betterment of the global game at all levels”.Travel restrictions mean the original November Test schedule, with southern hemisphere sides travelling to Europe, cannot take place, but there are plans for top-level competitions on both sides of the equator.South Africa have withdrawn from the Rugby Championship, so Argentina, Australia and New Zealand will now play a Tri-Nations tournament. Each team will play each other twice between 31 October and 5 December, with matches being staged in Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney.In the northern hemisphere, the Six Nations matches postponed due to coronavirus took place at the end of October while there were also one-off fixtures between Scotland and Georgia and Wales and France.Related: 2020 Six Nations fixturesLeading men: Ireland captain Johnny Sexton and Italy skipper Luca Bigi (Getty Images)The Women’s Six Nations was more complicated because there were six matches to reschedule, including three apiece for Scotland and Italy. The weekend of 24-25 October saw the Scotland v France and Ireland v Italy matches played, and the original final-round matches were all due to be played on 1 November.However, both Wales v Scotland and France v Ireland were postponed due to positive Covid tests, so Italy v England was the only match that took place. The three remaining fixtures – Italy v Scotland, Wales v Scotland and France v Ireland – have since been cancelled, while the European qualifiers for the 2021 World Cup that were due to take place in December have now been postponed until early next year.Related: 2021 Rugby World Cup Qualifying ProcessEngland Women will play a two-Test series against France in November, though. They will play in France on Saturday 14 November and at Twickenham a week later, in what will be a double-header with the men. Both matches will be shown live on BBC Two.New Zealand’s Black Ferns have a three-match schedule, with a Possibles v Probables fixture followed by back-to-back games against the NZ Barbarians on 14 and 21 November.As for the remainder of the men’s calendar, 7-8 November was designated as a rest weekend followed by new tournament, the Autumn Nations Cup, from 13 November to 6 December.The Autumn Nations Cup will feature the Six Nations sides as well as Fiji and Georgia, with the eight teams split into two groups.Related: How to watch the Autumn Nations CupEngland, Georgia, Ireland and Wales are in one pool with Fiji, France, Italy and Scotland in the other.

first_imgOak Brook, Ill., May 20.Chanting “We work! We sweat! Put $15 in our check!” as they marched behind a banner reading “McDonald’s: $15 and union rights, not food stamps,” thousands of McDonald’s workers and their supporters marched on the fast food chain’s corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., on May 20.They carried a petition signed by 1.4 million people supporting their demands, which they delivered to a McDonald’s representative.A smaller demonstration took place the next day when McDonald’s had its annual meeting in Oak Brook, west of Chicago.Mary Kay Henry, president of the Service Employees International Union, which has financed many of the protests against McDonald’s, called on it to bargain and give its workers a bigger share of its profits.The NAACP also supported this protest. Many of the workers engaged in the struggle are Black.“Even when we get $15 and a union, we will keep fighting,” said Henry. “It doesn’t matter to us [what union the workers join]. What matters to us is that these workers win a union.” (Chicago Tribune, May 21)McDonald’s, whose financial gains are lagging, has a new CEO, Steve Easterbrook, who wants to reinvigorate the company. He has announced a dollar-an-hour raise over the minimum wage — which varies from locality to locality — as well as benefit increases for the 90,000 workers the company directly employs.But 80 percent of McDonald’s workers are employed by franchise owners, and they will not be getting this increase.The SEIU is pursuing a legal strategy before the National Labor Relations Board to get around this issue by declaring McDonald’s a “joint” employer with the franchisees.McDonald’s workers are applying direct pressure on the company with numerous nationwide strikes, protests and occupations. In retaliation, the company has accused the SEIU of spending millions of dollars to injure its brand. (CNN Money, May 21)McDonald’s wanted to use its wage hike to present itself as a progressive burger company, but the two days of militant protests in Oak Brook exposed its pretenses.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Informal talks are likely over the next few days, according to Reuters, as global attention turns towards a U.N. meeting this week. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says nothing had formally been arranged for this week, however, leaving further uncertainty as to whether the U.S. will continue to seek a trilateral agreement.The U.S. appears likely to forge ahead with a U.S.-Mexico only trade agreement until the U.S. can reach an agreement with Canada beyond the September 30th deadline. Trudeau offered some pushback over the weekend, saying Canada would not be rushed into reaching an agreement and that he would not sign “a bad NAFTA deal.” Dairy market access remains a sticking point between the two nations, among a handful of other remaining issues.A new trade agreement was signed on Monday between the U.S. and the Republic of Korea. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued the following statement following the KORUS Free Trade Agreement:“We are entering into a new KORUS agreement that is a better deal for the entire United States economy, including the agricultural sector. This represents an important improvement in trade relations between our two nations, building on long-standing cooperation we have enjoyed. This agreement adds to the momentum building for President Trump’s approach to trade, which is to stand strong for America’s interests and strike better deals. I am optimistic that the dominoes will continue to fall: KORUS, then a new NAFTA, and new agreements with the European Union, Japan, and, most notably, China. As an avid sportsman, I would say ‘put this one in the bag and keep hunting for more.’”Sources: NAFB News Service and USDA U.S., Canada Talks on NAFTA Offer Little Progress; KORUS Completedlast_img read more

Ramasubramanium stated that his appeal against conviction will be heard once top court starts physical hearings. Bench also refused his hospitalisation, stating that medical reports suggest that he doesn’t require any.Senior Advocate Vikas Singh appeared for Kumar and asked the bench to consider the bail plea on merits as the High Court’s judgment was faulty. “The witnesses deposition was completely reversed in the High Court and Trial Court,” said Singh.However, the CJI led bench refused to grant bail to him, adding that neither does that justify a “faulty” judgment and nor does his health require hospitalisation.CJI Bobde said that this was not a “small case” and that bail will not be considered at all at this stage.Singh urged to Court to grant bail to the accused on account of ailing health and spiralling weight loss but Senior Advocate HS Phoolka opposed this by submitting that Kumar was being well taken care of.The top court has been consistently denying bail to Kumar. On May 13, it refused to grant interim bail to the ex-congress MP stating that there was no ground for hospitalisation reflected in the medical report submitted by AIIMS board warranting bail.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had then argued that the case was in fact of “genocide” and that “Kumar was leading a mob”.On March 4, the top court had directed Sajjan Kumar to appear before an AIIMS Board to determine whether his medical condition warranted institutionalisation. The Board was directed to submit its report in a week.The former Congress MP had moved a bail application before the apex court on health grounds, and his counsel, Senior Advocate Vikas Singh had asked the court to hear it on an urgent basis.Singh informed the court that Kumar had lost 7 kgs and was dealing with a life threatening disease due to which he must get interim bail to be admitted to hospital for immediate medical attention.On January 14, Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had issued notice on Congress Leader Sajjan Kumar’s plea against his conviction and sentence in the 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots Case.Next Storylast_img read more

The advisory is based on the findings and suggestions made by the ‘Committee of Experts on Impact of Covid-19 Pandemic on Human Rights and Future Response’. The Committeee, comprising of representatives from the civil society organizations, independent domain experts, and the representatives from the concerned ministries/ department, found: “During the Pandemic the LGBTQI+ community has suffered from unemployment, lack of livelihoods, hostile home situations and restricted mobility, which have contributed to severe mental health concerns among transgender and queer people. Because of the lockdown, they have been forced to stay with their families who are not always supportive or affirmative of their sexual and gender identities and/or expressions. Confinement in homes has given rise to marriage threats, physical, emotional and sexual abuse with no escape. They are also robbed of the opportunity to access safe spaces, support groups and public life. Individuals have been forced to conceal their preferred gender sexual expressions and live a life of pretence, which has stimulated self-hate, depression, homelessness and suicidal thoughts.” Accordingly, it suggested the following measures be taken, both by the Central Government as well as the Governments in various States/ UTs: Access to Health Services: Ensure no discrimination in the availability of essential health services at the Primary Health Centres, Community Health Centres, Mohalla clinics, and quarantine centres.Ensure uninterrupted availability of antiretroviral treatment (ART), HIV testing, hormonal treatment (HRT) and gender affirming treatments including mental health treatments/therapies and counselling for LGBTQI+ community through all districts and local hospitals and medical health centres even during the pandemic.Healthcare professionals and staff should be sensitised about the specific needs of the LGBTQI+ community in order to combat discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Access to social security, relief measures and welfare schemes All relief measures/welfare schemes such as Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojna, Pradhan Mantri, Ujjwala Yojana, etc, should take into account gender diversity and vulnerabilities of LGBTQI+ community especially, in terms of eligibility requirements like ID proofs, and ensure that transgender and intersex persons are fully covered under these schemes.Universalization of PDS to ensure availability of food and ration for the LGBTQI+ community irrespective of identity document. Protection from Domestic Violence and Abuse: Ensure implementation of existing guidelines and protocols, medico-legal care for survivors of domestic and sexual violence along with timely treatment, psycho-social support and medico-legal documentation in cases of domestic/sexual violence victims. Separate 24*7 toll free helpline number for LGBTQI+ community: A separate helpline number may be set up to provide support in different regional languages for coping with violence, abuse, health and mental health issues etc. Financial Support to LGBTQI+ Community: The government may provide appropriate financial support to the economically vulnerable section of the LGBTQI+ community who have lost their livelihood due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdown. Protection from Eviction: Ensure that no person from the LGBTQI+ community is forcefully evicted from their place of stay on the grounds of gender-based discrimination. Protection of Transgender and Intersex persons in Prison Ensure that there is no discrimination and abuse in the process of incarceration of transgender and intersex persons in prison during the pandemic.Ensure equal access to healthcare services along with other gender sensitive health services including the availability of a gynaecologist/other specialists and regular check-ups inside prisons. Skill Development of LGBTQI+ community: Keeping in view the rising unemployment during Covid-19 pandemic the government should ensure skill development opportunities for the LGBTQI+ community. Access to Education fur the LGBTQI+ community: Ensure provision of education through online classes is inclusive for and accessible to all members of the LGBTQI+ community and no discrimination shall be made on the basis of their identity/gender.Click Here To Read AdvisorySubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Our undertaking is that we are bound to demolish by virtue of Your Lordships directions. Our undertaking is to demolish them by May 31, 2021″, he advanced.”This classification of the structures as unauthorised is not correct as per the Uttarakhand Rules…we are neither able to go to the High Court nor come here, our grievance is not being redressed anywhere…”, argued the counsel for the intervenor Akhada Parishad.”We cannot accept your argument to not demolish the structures! We can’t open everything now because of the judgment of this court”, observed Justice M. R. Shah.”Everything that is without permission is unauthorised! The land belongs to the Irrigation Department. It was allotted to you temporarily, it was not a permanent allotment! How could you undertake construction on it?”, asked Justice Ashok Bhushan.”Look at the picture! It is a permanent construction!”, commented Justice Shah.”I have spoken to the Chief Secretary also. Your Lordships can consider rejecting his application. We are not supporting it”, said the SG.”We are anyway rejecting it”, noted Justice Bhushan.”The state wants time till May 31, 2021, so the structures can stay till then. But the state should be permitted to demolish them May 31, 2021″, ordered the bench.The Supreme Court by order dated 29.09.2009 has required that no unauthorised constructions was henceforth to be carried out in the name of Temple, Church, Mosque, Gurudwara, etc. on public streets, public parks or other public places; and, after noting that affidavits were filed except by the State of Uttarakhand, the Chief Secretary of the State of Uttarakhand was directed to file an affidavit within two weeks from the date of that order.The Supreme Court further directed that, with a view to ensure implementation of the directions issued by it, the matter should be supervised by the concerned High Courts and, accordingly, remitted the matters to the respective High Courts to ensure implementation of the order in an effective manner.The order of the Supreme Court dated 31.01.2018, required the Chief Secretaries, in consultation with the respective Governments, to frame policies in respect of existing unauthorised constructions of a religious nature which had already taken place; and to review the same on a case to case basis.The high court had taken suo motu cognisance of the issue as the state government had failed to comply with the 2009 direction. Thereafter, the high court had directed the state to demolish all these structures by March 23. The government, however, has been seeking extension of time, stating that many of the structures are used to host Kumbh Mela scheduled early next year.Next Storylast_img read more
