As well as the below she also tweeted: “And people wonder why mental health in rugby had become a big problem. Take a minute to be considerate of people’s feelings instead of bashing them behind a keyboard or phone screen.” Putting all the negativity behind me and heading into this week with a positive attitudewhether I am welcomed or not I am still contracted to my team and I will continue to train week in and week out with my brothers #endofstory #letsmoveon pic.twitter.com/y7QBqLOyVV— Julian Savea (@juliansavea7) February 17, 2019Savea’s wife, Fatima, also took to social media to highlight some of the horrific comments directed at the out-of-form wing online.

Absolutely disgusted by this shit. pic.twitter.com/TZzU1pRIpu— T I M A (@_timasavea) February 17, 2019 Future of former All Black Julian Savea up in the air after savaging from Toulon bossJulian Savea left New Zealand considered one of the most lethal wingers in world rugby, with 46 tries in 54 Tests for the All Blacks. But things have failed to spark for him this season at Toulon. And after the French giants took their tenth Top 14 defeat for the season, falling 19-10 to Agen and lying in 11th place in the league, the club’s president took out his anger on the wing.Talking to French publication RMC Sport, the famously outspoken Mourad Boudjellal said: “I’m going to ask for a DNA test. It is not Savea that we recreated but ‘Savéapas’.“He must have changed on the plane. If I were him, I would apologise and I would go home. When we reach this level of play, we must apologise and leave.Related: Anatomy of a Top 14 rugby transfer“I told him he was released and he was no longer welcome in Toulon!”As you can imagine, this savage outburst from Boudjellal has drawn international attention. However, Savea, 28, gave a calm and measure response to the Toulon supremo’s comments, as you can see below. It remains to be seen if Savea will be involved with the club at all going forward.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news in rugby.

The four townhouses are located on the right bank of the city of Lucerne, a prime location in a residential district. The southern site receives an ideal amount of sunlight and an excellent view of the nearby lake, the city and the Alps. The plot is on a slope bounded by the Adligenswilerstrasse and a wall, where the continuation of the Rigistrasse was planned but never realized. A pending redevelopment of the neoclassical townhouse on the Adligenswilerstrasse 18 (a separate project) and the neighboring property to the east created space for four new townhouses and a two-story, underground garage.Save this picture!Courtesy of alp Architektur Lischer PartnerThe four townhouses’ uniform material and volume respond to the surrounding small-scale development. They follow the orientation of the seaward slope and the adjacent streets and buildings. Despite the proximity of the townhouses, the volumes are placed at different positions and heights to each other, creating a greater sense of privacy for the inhabitants.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe townhouses are within walking distance of the Adligenswilerstrasse garden. The design of the area on the slopes and the open meadow, bordered by dense bushes and strategically placed shrubs, is based on the original villa’s garden. One network of paths with concrete stairs and walkways opens up to the individual houses. The surrounding concrete walls are made from a special water-gravel mixture with a smooth surface.Save this picture!Courtesy of alp Architektur Lischer PartnerBecause buildings may only be on one level of the terrain, the buildings have surprisingly simple forms. The houses are built of solid yellow Jurassic limestone. The roof is covered with plates of the same material. This natural stone emerged about 150 million years ago as a lagoon sediment; its use underscores how the townhouses are in close dialogue with the historic fabric of their environment.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessCasa Y / F:L ArchitettiSelected ProjectsDoes Prince Charles Abuse His Power Over Architects?Architecture News Share Urban Villas / alp Architektur Lischer Partner Projects Manufacturers: horgenglarus Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Year: CopyHouses•Lucerne, Switzerland 2012 Save this picture!Courtesy of alp Architektur Lischer Partner+ 9 Share ArchDaily Architects: alp Architektur Lischer Partner Year Completion year of this architecture project Urban Villas / alp Architektur Lischer PartnerSave this projectSaveUrban Villas / alp Architektur Lischer Partner Switzerland “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/422729/urban-villas-lischer-partner-architekten-planer Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/422729/urban-villas-lischer-partner-architekten-planer Clipboard CopyAbout this officealp Architektur Lischer PartnerOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLucerneWoodHousesSwitzerlandPublished on September 02, 2013Cite: “Urban Villas / alp Architektur Lischer Partner” 02 Sep 2013.

UK Fundraising looks at how charities and fundraisers have battled adversity in the past and what that might tell us now, including video from two stirring self-help sessions on the brink of the 2008 financial crisis.For many fundraisers this will be their first experience of fundraising in the wake or midst of a natural disaster, public health epidemic or financial crisis. Other fundraisers will have experience of weathering challenges like the 2008/09 financial crisis and decade of austerity, the 9/11 aftermath, foot and mouth outbreaks, regional flooding, and the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s/90s.And that doesn’t include the many fundraisers who live and work in countries affected by civil conflict, often over many years.So, there is a lot of experience amongst fundraisers of working and succeeding in the harshest of conditions. Some fundraisers are beginning to share this experience, to highlight any lessons learned that might be applicable in this very different situation.Others are looking further back to what fundraisers and donors have done in past emergencies.

The passing lane closures at Interstate 20 and Crane Avenue will now remain in place overnight as construction of a crossover is completed, Texas Department of Transportation Spokesman Gene Powell said.Construction of the crossover began Wednesday, and the closing passing lanes in the area of I-20 and Crane Avenue had been planned to reopen at night, but Powell said they will now remain closed overnight in order to improve safety by not exposing workers to traffic twice a day to set up barricades around and to save several hundred dollars a day in costs.Powell said the passing lanes will be closed for the next three weeks as construction is completed before reopening.A bridge rail upgrade at I-20 and East Loop 338 also began Thursday with perimeter signs being set, Powell said, and the contractor plans to close both eastbound and westbound driving lanes next Thursday, Jan. 11, and there will be various ramp and lane closures as the bridge rails are updated over the next 10 weeks.

Cordray may have fanned the flames in February when he defended the Bureau’s oversight of credit unions and several of the Bureau’s mortgage-related regulatory changes, namely the Qualified Mortgage rule and the new servicing rules, in a public speech at CUNA.Reps. Adam Schiff (D-California) and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) led the bipartisan group of House members in writing the letter, which praised credit unions and community banks for the “safe and sound” lending opportunities they provide for their customers. The lawmakers also noted in their letter that the CFPB routinely does not distinguish credit unions and community banks from the largest lenders for which their regulations were intended.The CFPB “may unintentionally burden community-based financial institutions and limit the choice and availability of consumer credit,” according to the letter.“(The CFPB) may unintentionally burden community-based financial institutions and limit the choice and availability of consumer credit.”The letter cited a recent report by the Government Accountability Office on the regulatory impact of some of the provisions set forth by Dodd-Frank, and “the study found that there are a number of cases where financial services have been limited or discontinued by community-based financial institutions due to new requirements.”The lawmakers pointed out that Section 1022(b)(3)(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act gives the CFPB authority to exempt “any class” of entity from its rulemakings and regulations.“As you undertake rulemakings, we urge you to consider the benefits credit unions and community banks provide and ensure that regulations do not have the unintended consequence of limiting services or increasing costs for credit union members or community bank customers,” the House members wrote.The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) praised the lawmakers’ efforts.“We thank Representatives Schiff and Stivers for their leadership on this issue, as well as all of the members of Congress that signed the letter for their recognition of the overwhelming regulatory burden facing today’s credit unions,” NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler said.Click here to view the entire letter. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

As per Section 195(1)(b) CrPC, the cognizance of an offecne relating to fabrication of evidence in a matter pending before court can be taken only on the basis of a complaint filed by that Court.The High Court held that the police could not have registered the FIRs for Section 193 IPC(offence relating to false evidence), in view of the bar under Section 195(1)(b) CrPC. The Court also observed that the other offences mentioned in the FIR are “undoubtedly interwoven and inseperable” with Section 193 IPC.”…the offence under Section 193 IPC being a non-cognisable offence, the Crime Branch could not have registered the crimes without following the procedure under Section 155(1) Cr.P.C, despite the deeming clause under Section155(4). Hence, the remedy of the aggrieved persons was to approach the Special Court”, the order passed by a bench of Justice VG Arun said.The Court held that the proper remedy would have been for the police to approach the Special PMLA Court, which has taken cognizance of the ED’s final report, with the complaint that the ED officials were fabricating evidence.As regards the FIR registered with respect to the alleged coercion of smuggling accused Sandeep Nair, the High Court noted that his statement under Section 161 CrPC has been recorded. Taking note of this fact, the Court said that the Special Court will be at liberty to look into the materials collected by the Crime Branch following the procedure under Section 340 CrPC.””As far as the instant cases are concerned, the Special Court has already received the complaint of the accused Sandeep Nair and has allowed the application of the Crime Branch to question him in jail. The 161 Statement of Sandeep Nair recorded thereafter was made available to me in a sealed cover. In my considered opinion, while interdicting the police from continuing the investigation, the interest of justice requires the Special Judge be permitted to look into the materials collected by the Crime Branch treating it as a petition under Section 340(1) CrPC so as to decide whether it is expedient to conduct an inquiry”, the bench noted in the order.The Court directed that the materials collected by the investigating officers be produced before the Special Court in a sealed cover.”The Investigating Officers shall forthwith submit all records pertaining to the crimes before the Special Court in a sealed cover. The learned Special Judge can look into those records and other materials, if any available, while deciding whether it is expedient to conduct an enquiry”.A Bench of Justice VG Arun pronounced judgment in two writ petitions moved by Deputy Director of ED Kochi Zone, P Radhakrishnan, challenging two First Information Reports (FIRs) registered by Kerala Police Crime Branch.The Court had earlier directed that no coercive action be taken against officials of the ED and had recorded an undertaking made by Senior Public Prosecutor that official witnesses would not be called till the matter was decided. The FIRs allege that gold smuggling accused were coerced during ED’s investigation of the gold smuggling case to implicate certain high-ranking members of the State Government including the Chief Minister. The first FIR is based on an alleged audio clip by gold smuggling accused Swapna Suresh alleging she was coerced to implicate the Chief Minister. The second FIR makes a similar allegation from a letter supposed to have written by another gold smuggling accused Sandeep Nair. Interestingly, the second FIR was filed while the hearing of the first FIR was underway, and saw the Counsel appearing for the ED allege that the facts of the two FIRs were the same.When the filing of the second FIR was brought to the notice of the Court, the court ordered that investigation in the second FIR was to be deferred.”There has to be some deference to the court. We were in the midst of hearing the other case”, Justice Arun told the Prosecutor on this occasion.In the first FIR officials of the ED have been booked for abetment, conspiracy, framing incorrect documents with intent to cause injury, fabrication of false evidence and threatening accused Swapna Suresh to give false evidence (sections 116, 120B, 167, 192, 193, 195A of the Indian Penal Code). In the second FIR offences of conspiracy and the punishment for fabrication of false evidence (sections 120B and 193 of the IPC) are notably absent.Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta, Additional Solicitor Generals S V Raju and KM Nataraj had appeared for the ED. Senior Advocate Harin P Raval appeared for the State Government.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had submitted that the issue of “cooperative federalism” was involved in the case and law never contemplated one investigating agency examining the correctness of evidence collected by another agency. If the FIR is permitted, it will mean that no central agency can investigate in a state fearlessly and independently(Detailed account of SG’s arguments may be read here). During one of the hearings ASG Raju for the ED argued that two FIRs were permissible only in a counter-case, and not where the FIRs were the same. “Sandeep was already there, so no discovery, no different version, it’s the same thing, same wine in different bottle..I can understand if Sandeep was not in the first picture .. If test of sameness is applied, second FIR has to go. The first FIR has Swapna and Sandeep, you cannot pick out Sandeep from the first FIR and say the two FIRs are different,” ASG Raju argued. The detailed hearings saw submissions on whether the investigation by the Crime Branch affected cooperative federalism, and elaborate deliberations on the scope of the provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Code of Criminal Procedure in question in the case.
