SCOTLAND: Edinburgh need changes but not the kind you think

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS during the Heineken Cup semi final match between Ulster and Edinburgh at Aviva Stadium on April 28, 2012 in Dublin, Ireland. The call to arms can be heard by no one, though. With Laidlaw himself injured and Matt Scott and Tim Visser missing, and with Ross Rennie being so valuable but so fragile that he may well be the new RoboCop, the lack of depth is now apparent as the thing that needs addressing most in Edinburgh.Glasgow have stalked towards the level they now enjoy. Granted they have brought in their share of players from outside of Scotland, but they have a cabal of local lads who, due to a few seasons of holding their nose in the deep end, have grown in stature and found themselves comfortable with Pro12 rugby.Edinburgh do not have that, having relied on certain key players an awful lot in the past. Arguably their young fly-half options like Harry Leonard should be able to cope by now, but having no long-term experience while other young players make the bench at most means that Edinburgh struggle come international time or during injury outbreaks.Edinburgh do look different with Ross Rennie in the sideSo one thing that Solomons must change in the coming months, even when his big hitters return, is to allow young players, and young forwards in particular, time in the field. Solomons plan should be a long-term one, for the best of the club for years to come. Is he thinking short-term success, or long-term development: Edinburgh Rugby head coach Alan SolomonsBy Alan DymockCHANGE CAN be jarring. We all know that. Why go off Marathon Bars? You can’t replace that EastEnders character with a different actress!Change for change’s sake in particular is just unsavoury. If anything it can feel like change is being foisted upon you; a decision you weren’t privy to being served up and called your only option.So with Glasgow Warriors, any change is gradual. After all, with the relative successes of last season it would be nonsensical for head coach Gregor Townsend to wield a cleaver and tell the boys it’s time they became something different, forgetting anything that took years to build with or without their tactical leader.No great shakes: Edinburgh didn’t look different in preseasonHowever, with Edinburgh Rugby it has become apparent in only a week that anything incremental will not be enough.In the October edition of Rugby World – out now – Edinburgh captain Greig Laidlaw explains that the Edinburgh way of old would be out of the window. The problem is that new head coach Alan Solomons has had almost no time to impose will on his side while the man holding the rudder for the second half of the last season, forwards coach Stevie Scott, is still the constant. This is not to say he shouldn’t be there, but with Solomons not long warming his buns in the hot seat there is a chance that some may revert to type and with a team like Edinburgh in a league like the Pro12 there is unlikely to be a wholly positive outcome. We have seen fits and starts in the past, as a young player drifts in and out to a soundtrack of “he’s not good enough.” Solomons needs to back two or three kids and strive to play them for a prolonged period, when things are going well, in order to bring them on. It worked with Matt Scott in a relatively short timeframe, why not do it with a Bomber Hislop or a Hamish Watson?Boldness now means a brighter future. Using youth is a more valuable ‘major change’ than scrapping the old Edinburgh style. Though it would help if they focused on defence as well…last_img read more

Grants from government were also down by nearly £2 million which meant total income was £26.5 million (£31.6 million in 2015).Individual giving, which is the largest category of voluntary income, was the biggest faller in 2016 at £4.6 million, from £6.3 million. As well as regular giving, individual giving includes specific Concern campaigns throughout the year such as appeals for Ethiopia which was supported by 2,400 donors contributing £222,163, an appeal for Syria which raised £130,000 and the ‘Build Hope in the City’ appeal contributing £279,436.The accounts comment on the problems with monthly direct debit donations in May 2016 which withdrew larger amounts than people agreed to.“This was quickly corrected, although did result in the loss of individual supporters,” according to the accounts.Legacy income, community fundraising and contributions from the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) fell to £439,000, £275,000 and £265,000 respectively.Corporate, major donor and trust income was one of the areas of fundraising which grew in 2016, from £1.3 million to £1.8 million. Charitable foundations remain a growing source of support for Concern, with 102 foundations contributing a total of £664,858.Concern’s accounts provide details of expenditure for each fundraising area and record that individual giving costs were £1.9 million, corporate costs were £387,000 and community fundraising £183,000. Overall, total fundraising costs were down from £2.9 million to £2.6 million.center_img  121 total views,  1 views today Tagged with: Finance Research / statistics Voluntary income falls for Concern in the UK About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

France: Thousands defy ban on pro-Palestinian protests

first_imgIn the Paris suburb of Sarcelles.According to the French newspaper Le Monde, on July 19 between 6,000 and 8,000 people showed up at a banned demonstration in Paris to support the Palestinian resistance in Gaza. Their main slogan was “Israel is an assassin, [French President] Hollande is an accomplice.” (Reuters, July 19)  Demonstrations, likewise officially banned, also took place in Sarcelles, a small city north of Paris, and Nice in southern France and in a number of other cities where they weren’t banned.The previous Sunday, July 13, a pro-Palestinian march of 30,000 in Paris was brutally attacked by the Jewish Defense League. Minister of the Interior Bernard Cazeneuve used this attack as an excuse to claim the projected demonstration was “a threat to public order” and supported the decision of the prefect of police, the official in charge of the cops in Paris, to ban it.Speaking from the former French colony of Niger, President François Hollande said: “France cannot allow conflict to be imported.  It cannot have demonstrations which confront each other, risking public disorder.” (Libération, July 19)A number of protesters told the semiofficial television chain TV2 that the people of France have the democratic right to protest and march.  Street protests and marches are a very important and normal part of French political life.Both Libération and l’Humanité media outlets ran live tweets of the protest as it took off so it is possible to reconstruct what happened.When the CRS [French national] riot police blocked the protest from marching, some of the protesters threw rocks and bottles, and the cops responded with tear gas and stun grenades.  The cops used so much gas that the polluted air made it hard to breathe.As the confrontations with the cops were becoming sharper and more intense, most of the families and left-wing political leaders left the march.  The only party to officially call for the march on July 19 was the New Anti-Capitalist Party, but leaders from most of the left parties were present.Along with some Israeli flags, some cop cars and some other official vans were burned by the protesters. Libération reported 44 arrests and 17 cops injured.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Wade’s ‘crazy’ draft day exceeds expectations

first_imgThe College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Twitter Garrett Podell ReddIt Facebook Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J. Collier “The day was a crazy, really happy day,” Wade said.After the first day of the draft, which includes just the first two rounds, Wade didn’t see college baseball well represented.“I watched the first day of the draft and watched a bunch of high schoolers come off the board,” Wade said. “As a college student, you’re like this is a youth movement where all they want is 17 and 18-year-olds, so how does it help your cause?”Then came Day two, Rounds 3-10. That’s when the craziness for Wade began.“I was with my girlfriend at her place trying to get it all loaded on a laptop, and she has the tracker going and the Wi-Fi cuts out in the middle of the third round,” Wade said.Pandemonium ensued.“She’s freaking out, and I said relax, I’m not going in the third round, not that high, just calm down,” Wade said. “She said I have to get this to work. We finally pull it up at the end of the third round, and I kept watching high school guys come off the board, so I thought if something happens it’ll be in the seventh or eighth rounds.”The two teams Wade believed were most interested in him were the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago White Sox, who had back-to-back draft picks in the fourth and fifth rounds.They selected two high schoolers.“Both teams went with high schoolers in the fourth and fifth round, so I said guess nothing’s happening,” Wade said. “Then a call from the Indians comes up at the end of the fifth round, and they said are we going to do this or not.”Words weren’t coming out of Wade’s mouth.“I was silent on the phone thinking is this actually happening?” Wade said. “It was a whirlwind.”Interestingly enough, Wade has a connection or two to the Indians.“It’s really ironic actually because, in the fall, I showed my girlfriend the movie Major League,” Wade said. “She’s learned all about baseball the last three years, and she said ‘but the Indians aren’t bad.’ Which of course I said no, they’re in the World Series, but the movie with Charlie Sheen portrays them as hilarious.”One of the first people to text the TCU right fielder congratulations Tuesday was his roommate from summer league baseball, a pitcher from a Division Two school, in the Coastal Plains League after his first year at TCU.“I lived out on a farm, with a kid from Ohio, Columbus actually,” Wade said. “Loves the Buckeyes. Huge Indians fan.”The roommate had somewhat of a premonition, texting Wade before he was selected about a dream scenario.“He texted me yesterday morning, saying best of luck man, hope I’m saying Go Tribe to you at the end of the day,” Wade said. “He was one of the first five people to text me and say ‘I can’t believe this is happening.’ He’s one of the best people I know, so I’ve kept in touch with him over the years.”Now comes the ultimate decision. Leave TCU and head north after the season, or come back one more time. With Wade’s academic status, both options are available to him.“I’m a double-major in finance and accounting, and I’ve had a lot of opportunities here with the Neely School of Business,” Wade said. “I have a year left of school, two semesters, and I’m on time to graduate next spring with two degrees, which I’m excited about.Wade could complete those last two semesters in Fort Worth or spread them out during minor league and major league offseasons.“I don’t know what the future holds honestly, but I’ll talk to friends and the coaching staff here, one day at a time,” Wade said. “Basically, we’ll see how it all plays out.”However, his time in college won’t feel complete without one last thing.“It was a dream come true to be drafted, but there’s a bucket list,” Wade said. “I have yet to win a national championship as a college player. I have to get that done first, one thing we have left to do.”Schlossnagle said he hopes Wade can play in the big leagues. But for now, Wade is focused on one thing: winning TCU’s first baseball national championship.The Horned Frog’s first College World Series game in Omaha at TD Ameritrade Ballpark is set for Sunday night at 6 against the Florida Gators.

Poland’s new social media law puts freedom of expression at risk, RSF warns

first_img Receive email alerts A few days after several platforms decided to suspend the accounts of Donald Trump, the Polish government announced it was drawing up a bill to curb the powers of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to delete content or cancel accounts. The measure, published on 15 January, is officially aimed at protecting the constitutional right to freedom of expression on social media. Organisation January 28, 2021 Poland’s new social media law puts freedom of expression at risk, RSF warns With firing of four editors, “repolonisation” under way in Poland The council will have seven days to consider whether the content in question falls within Polish law and issue a ruling, which the platforms must follow on pain of fines of up to 50 million zlotys (11 million euros). The Polish government has already shown a propensity for propaganda by turning state-funded media outlets into mouthpieces for the government.

Consent By Majority Of Unit Holders Who Participated In Poll Is Sufficient For Winding Up Mutual Fund Schemes: Supreme Court

It is not to frustrate and make winding up an impossibility.” the bench comprising Justices Abdul Nazeer and Sanjiv Khanna observed thus while upholding the validity of e-voting process for winding up of six mutual fund schemes of Franklin Templeton.The Karnataka High Court had, in this case, held that the clause (c) to sub regulation (15) of Regulation mandates consent of the unit holders for winding up of mutual fund schemes even when the trustees form an opinion that the scheme is required to be wound up in terms of clause (a) to sub-regulation (2) of Regulation 392. The Regulation 18(5)(c) mandates the trustees to obtain the consent of the unitholders c) when the majority of the trustees decide to wind up or prematurely redeem the units.In appeal, the Apex Court dealt with the interpretation of the expression ‘the consent of the unit holders’ for the purpose of clause (c) to sub regulation (15) of Regulation 18. The issue considered was whether ‘consent’ would mean majority of the unit holders who exercise their right in the poll, or majority of all the unit holders of the scheme?The bench observed that, reading prescription of a quorum as majority of the unit holders or ‘consent’ as implying ‘consent by the majority of all unit holders’ in Regulation 18(15)(c)  will not only lead to an absurdity but also an impossibility given the fact that mutual funds have thousands or lakhs of unit holders. “Many unitholders due to lack of expertise, commercial understanding, relatively small holding etc. may not like to participate. Consent of majority of all unitholders of the scheme with further prescription that ‘fifty percent of all unitholders’ shall constitute a quorum is clearly a practical impossibility and therefore would be a futile and foreclosed exercise.”, it said. The bench observed:” In the case of unitholders, the number is fluctuating and ever changing and, therefore, indefinite. Numbers of unitholders can increase, decrease and change with purchase or redemption. Therefore, in the context of clause (c) of Regulation 18(15), we would not, in the absence of any express stipulation, prescribe a minimum quorum and read the requirement of ‘consent by the majority of the unitholders’ as consent by majority of all the unitholders. On the other hand, it would mean majority of unitholders who exercise their right and vote in support or to reject the proposal to wind up the mutual fund scheme. The unitholders who did not exercise their choice/option cannot be counted as either negative or positive votes as either denying or giving consent to the proposal for winding up.”, Investment in share market, though beneficial and attractive, requires expertise in portfolio construction, stock selection and market timing. In view of attendant risks, diversification of portfolio is preferred but this consequentially requires a larger investment. Mutual funds managed by professional fund managers with advantages of pooling of funds and operational efficiency are the preferred mode of investment for ordinary and common persons. It would be wrong to expect that many amongst these unitholders would have definitive opinion required and necessary voting in a poll on winding up of a mutual fund scheme. Such unitholders, for varied reasons, like lack of understanding and expertise, small holding etc., would prefer to abstain, leaving it to others to decide. Such abstention or refusal to express opinion cannot be construed as either accepting or rejecting the proposals. Keeping in view the object and purpose of the Regulation with the language used therein, we would not accept a ‘construction’ which would lead to commercial chaos and deadlock. Therefore, silence on the part of absentee unitholders can neither be taken as an acceptance nor rejection of   the proposal. Regulation 18(15)(c), upon application in ground reality, must not be interpreted in a manner to frustrate the very law and objective/purpose for which it was enacted. We would rather accept a reasonable and pragmatic ‘construction’ which furthers the legislative purpose and objective. The underlying thrust behind Regulation 18(15)(c) is to inform the unitholders of the reason and cause for the winding up of the scheme and to give them an opportunity to accept and give their consent or reject the proposal. It is not to frustrate and make winding up an impossibility.Regarding the ‘poll’, the bench made the following observations:(i) Regulation 18(15)(c) mandates and requires consent of the unitholders for winding up, but does not prescribe any mode or manner for taking consent. Therefore, by implication, the Regulation gives option of holding a physical meeting, postal poll or e-poll. In physical meetings, voting may be by show of hands or by holding a poll. Show of hands is quick and an easy way to administer option but would not reflect and take into account the relative number of units held by the unitholders. Unitholders with fewer units have the same say as those with a greater number of units. It is not a good option when the proposal is contested. Poll, whether in a physical meeting, by way of a postal ballot or e-poll, has an advantage as each unitholder has one vote for every unit/share held. Therefore, in cases where there is huge disparity between the units held, or possibility of contest/dispute, poll is the preferred method for ascertaining preference of the unitholders. The value of poll lies in the fact that the weighted voting strength based upon the number of units gives more accurate and precise results. Majority consent of the investors/unitholders should depend upon the number of units held by them.(ii) Polls are akin to election. Poll results like the election results are not to be lightly interfered with. More so, when it is fault of a third party and not of the proposer/successful candidate. Poll results like election results are not to be regarded as vitiated by breach of rules or mistake, until and unless the breach or mistake, it is proved has materially affected the result of the poll. This general principle may be deviated from only when poll/election is conducted so badly that it is not substantially in accordance with law as to elections, in which case it would not matter whether the result was affected or not.(iii) When the poll or voting is on issues or choices of commercial nature, normally it is not a part of the judicial process for the court to ferret out flaws by examining merits or wisdom of the unitholders who have voted. The court is not equipped and should refrain from entering into such oversights as doctrine of internal management, institutional sovereignty and right to opt and decide come into play. The unitholders are the best judge and are more conversant with heir own interests. All that is to be seen is that broad parameters of fairness in the administration, bona fide poll/election, and that fundamental rules of reasonable management of public business have not been breached.The bench, taking note of the e-voting results, rejected the objections to poll results and held that the unitholders of the six schemes have given their consent by majority to windup the six schemes. The court clarified that this order does not examine and decide other aspects and issues including the questions whether Regulation 18(15)(c) would apply when the trustee’s form an opinion that the scheme should be wound up in accordance with Regulation 39(2)(a).CASE: FRANKLIN TEMPLETON TRUSTEE SERVICES PRIVATE LIMITED vs. AMRUTA GARG [CIV]IL APPEAL NOS. 498-501 OF 2021CORAM: Justices S.
