Las Naciones Unidas y comentaristas internacionales están hablando de “guerra civil” ya que ha causado miles de muertos y muchos miles más de refugiados y desplazados. Rusia está enviando dos buques de guerra y 1,500 soldados. El presidente de Siria Bashar al-Assad que heredó el cargo de su padre, es odontólogo, está casado con una inglesa y no da muestras de ceder su cargo. Rusia, China, Irán y Cuba son los principales aliados de Siria. La población del país es de 21 millones.La comunidad latina de Estados Unidos está de plácemes porque el presidente Barack Obama, mediante acción ejecutiva, ha suspendido la deportación de jóvenes estudiantes que están sin documentos en el país desde hace años. “No es todo lo que necesitamos pero es un paso”, dicen muchos jóvenes en entrevistas. La medida podría beneficiar a 800,000 jóvenes. La normativa impone ciertas restricciones difíciles de cumplir. Líderes de la oposición han dicho que el presidente no siguió los pasos normales que establece la constitución y que lo ha hecho para beneficiarse en las próximas elecciones de noviembre.El Vaticano le ha recordado a la Conferencia del Liderato de Mujeres Religiosas que representa a 57,000 monjas en Estados Unidos, que ellas están “bajo la suprema dirección de la Santa Sede” y que hay “serios problemas doctrinales” en sus declaraciones así como “ciertos temas feministas radicales que son incompatibles con la fe católica”. Varios teólogos han defendido a las monjas diciendo que Roma “tiene cultura de dominación”.La diócesis anglicana de Uruguay espera una respuesta a la apelación que ha hecho al Consejo Ejecutivo Provincial luego que éste no ratificara la elección de Michael Pollesel, anterior secretario general de la Iglesia Anglicana de Canadá, que sucedería al obispo diocesano, Miguel Tamayo, cuando se jubile. Uruguay es parte de la Iglesia Anglicana en el Cono Sur de América.En un esfuerzo por evitar un cisma, el Vaticano ha propuesto un estatus legal especial en la iglesia a los seguidores del fallecido obispo francés Marcel Lefebvre. El superior del grupo tradicionalista, Bernard Fallay, dijo que “contestará en un tiempo razonable”. El estatus es similar al que goza el movimiento conservador Opus Dei.Ocho de los diez obispos de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en Dinamarca presentaron al Ministerio de Asuntos Religiosos del gobierno, un ritual para el matrimonio de personas del mismo sexo. El Parlamento ha aprobado el matrimonio homosexual en las cortes civiles.El presidente Hugo Chávez afirma que se siente “absolutamente bien” en momentos en que circulan rumores contrarios. La Corte Suprema de Venezuela rechazó la idea de que los candidatos presidenciales debían pasar un examen médico antes de su postulación. Sus palabras lapidarias: “Tengo fe en Dios, tengo fe en Cristo, mi Señor, y en la ciencia y en la voluntad de vivir que tengo para seguir batallando por este país”.Ciento dos obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos han escrito al presidente Barack Obama para que anule la decisión de suspender la ayuda al Hospital Ahli Arab en la Franja de Gaza. Fundado por la Iglesia Anglicana en 1882, sirve a todos los que lo necesitan sin distinción alguna. El hospital tiene 120 empleados, es administrado por la diócesis de Jerusalén y no por Hamas, el partido palestino que gobierna la franja.El Parlamento de Noruega ha votado por la separación de la Iglesia Luterana con el estado, decisión que debe ser confirmada en una enmienda constitucional. En la práctica, el cambio significa que el estado renuncia a cualquier control sobre la Iglesia de Noruega, incluyendo el nombramiento de pastores y obispos. La decisión, además, establece la igualdad de todas las religiones representadas en el país.Roberto Cazorla, escritor y antiguo corresponsal de la agencia noticiosa EFE de España, dice en el semanario Libre de Miami que la expansión de China le atemoriza. Cita como ejemplo que en 1963 había dos restaurantes chinos en Madrid y hoy el 60 por ciento de los comercios de Madrid son chinos.¿Cuál es la misión de la iglesia? El Consejo Consultivo Anglicano en Londres, propuso cinco responsabilidades: 1. Proclamar las buenas nuevas del Reino. 2. Enseñar, bautizar y nutrir a los nuevos creyentes. 3. Responder a las necesidades humanas en servicio amoroso. 4. Buscar la transformación de las estructuras injustas de la sociedad. 5. Proteger la integridad de la creación y sostener y renovar la vida de la tierra.PREGUNTA. ¿Soy yo acaso guarda de mi hermano? Respuesta de Caín cuando el Señor le preguntó por Abel. (Génesis 4:9).

Fijian star Pio Tuwai’s brilliant skill on show in rare old video

first_imgFriday Aug 26, 2016 Fijian star Pio Tuwai’s brilliant skill on show in rare old video Today Fijian superstar Pio Tuwai turned 33, so to celebrate his birthday we’ve got this short clip from a tournament some time back, showing exactly the kind of skills the big man possesses. Unfortunately he didn’t go to the Olympics due to injury, but this shows the depth Fiji have.While he is a formidable 6ft5 and 108kg’s, Tuwai is one of the most talented players on the World Sevens Series, and has become well known for his ability to offload in the tackle, getting the ball to players around him with some miraculous passes on countless occasions.He wasn’t able to get to the Olympics, but he did have a family member there – brother Josua Tuisova. The Toulon powerhouse winger was one of the stars of the tournament, bringing an added physical element to their attacking prowess out wide.Before it kicked off in Rio, Puwai had nothing but support for his younger brother. “I want to wish my brother and the team well. I did not make it but my brother is there so it is fair and square.”Talent clearly runs in the family, and if those two aren’t enough to deal with, there is another professional rugby playing brother too, Filipo Nakosi, who plays for Agen.Reflecting on the Gold winning effort of the Fiji team, coach Ben Ryan said that it wasn’t just the 12 players who went to Rio that made it happen. He thanked all the others involved, including Tuwai.“If it wasn’t for those players we wouldn’t have won the gold medal because the 17 matches we had at Uprising Beach Resort, where we went bone on bone full on, was harder than any Olympic game we played.”The World Sevens Series kicks off in Dubai on December 2nd, with Fiji as defending champions.There are plenty of Tuwai highlights online but below is a short tribute for you to enjoyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it , Sevens Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

NBA strike ignites sports-wide protest against police shooting of Jacob Blake

first_imgKenosha, Wis., became the epicenter of the anti-racist struggle, after Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot seven times in the back at point-blank range by a white police officer on Aug. 23. Kenosha is 40 miles from Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s biggest city.George Hill (left) and Sterling Brown read statement on behalf of Milwaukee Bucks team, Aug. 26.A recorded video showed that the unarmed Blake was shot as he attempted to enter his car. Three of his children were in the back seat and watched his shooting in horror. Blake’s father, Jacob Blake Sr., has reported that his son, now paralyzed from the waist down, is still fighting for his life. For a short time, Jacob Blake was handcuffed to his hospital bed while being heavily sedated.Two nights later, an avowed white supremacist, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, fatally shot two anti-racists who were protesting in Kenosha. Rittenhouse was taken into custody only on the next day — alive and unharmed. Rittenhouse reportedly attended a pro-Trump rally in Des Moines, Iowa, in January.Even more damning evidence of racist police bias was a videotape showing the Kenosha police thanking armed white-supremacist vigilantes for patrolling the streets — not long before the fatal shootings took place. Cops offered water to the vigilantes, including Rittenhouse. After the shootings, the cops inside tanks ignored Rittenhouse, who walked past them with his hands up.On Aug. 26, reacting to these recent developments in Kenosha, as well as to all the protests ignited by the public lynching of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, the six teams in the National Basketball Association playoffs carried out what amounted to an unprecedented and historic wildcat strike, with no warning to the NBA hierarchy and NBA billionaire bosses.This strike began when the Milwaukee Bucks refused to come onto the court for their scheduled game against the Orlando Magic. The other teams — Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Trailblazers, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma Thunder — showed solidarity with the Bucks by withholding their labor, that is, their skills and talents.These teams, along with others eligible for playoffs, have been playing in a contained environment separated from their families — a bubble — in Orlando, Fla. The bubble is aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.These teams represent the main U.S. professional basketball league, second only to the National Football League in terms of popularity in the United States. The rosters of these NBA teams are over 75% African American. Many of these players come from communities similar to the one in which Jacob Blake lives — that is, underserved and plagued by police terror.Many of these players, like Jacob Blake, are fathers to young children. When they look in the mirror, they can identify with Jacob Blake. Since late May, many of these same players, before entering the bubble, joined protests demanding justice and an end to police brutality and racism.  Bucks denounce injusticeBucks players Sterling Brown and George Hill read their team’s official statement on Aug. 26: “The past four months have shed a light on the ongoing racial injustices facing our African American communities. Citizens around the country have used their voices and platforms to speak out against these wrongdoings.“Over the last few days in our home state of Wisconsin, we’ve seen the horrendous video of Jacob Blake being shot in the back seven times by a police officer in Kenosha and the additional shooting of protesters. Despite the overwhelming plea for change, there has been no action, so our focus today cannot be on basketball.“When we take the court and represent Milwaukee and Wisconsin, we are expected to play at a high level, give maximum effort and hold each other accountable. We hold ourselves to that standard, and in this moment, we are demanding the same from our lawmakers and law enforcement.“We are calling for justice for Jacob Blake and demand the officers be held accountable. For this to occur, it is imperative for the Wisconsin State Legislature to reconvene after months of inaction and take up meaningful measures to address issues of police accountability, brutality and criminal justice reform. We encourage all citizens to educate themselves, take peaceful and responsible action, and remember to vote on Nov. 3.” (nba.com)Several years ago, Milwaukee police brutalized Brown. He has a lawsuit pending against the cops.All the teams in Orlando met late on Aug. 26 and again the next day. They decided to resume the playoff season either Aug. 28 or 29. All games scheduled for Aug. 27 were postponed.NBA champion, and now popular sports commentator, Kenny “The Jet” Smith, walked off the live set of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” program on Aug. 26 in support of the NBA boycott.Women’s NBA actsOnce the NBA teams carried out their one-day strike, six WNBA teams took action. Scheduled to play regular season games on Aug. 26, they planned varied protests.On the basketball court, the Washington Mystic team wore Jacob Blake warm-up shirts with seven bullet holes drawn on the back. At the last minute, they decided not to play. The WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, Connecticut Sun, Los Angeles Sparks, Minnesota Lynx and Phoenix Mercury also boycotted their games. No WNBA games were played on Aug. 27.In a statement representing the WNBA players’ union, Atlanta Dream forward Elizabeth Williams said: “What we have seen over the last few months, and most recently with the brutal police shooting of Jacob Blake, is overwhelming. And while we hurt for Jacob and his community, we also have an opportunity to keep the focus on the issues and demand change.” (espn.com, Aug. 26)The WNBA players, along with the NBA players, have given extra attention to demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman and EMT whom Kentucky police fatally shot multiple times this past March in her own home. No police officer has been charged with her murder.Baseball, soccer, tennis, hockey, football playersSix Major League Baseball teams postponed their Aug. 26 games to express their solidarity with the NBA boycott and the struggle for social justice: the Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and Cincinnati Reds. Several more MLB teams, including the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers, Oakland Athletics, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals postponed their games scheduled for Aug. 27 in protest of police brutality.The MLB action is significant. Only a small number of African American players are in the MLB. Historically the MLB has taken little to no progressive stances against racism since Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color line in 1947.In solidarity with Black Lives Matter, 10 Major League Soccer teams cancelled five matches on Aug. 26: FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids, Real Salt Lake vs. LAFC, San Jose Earthquakes vs. Portland Timbers, LA Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders FC and Inter Miami vs. Atlanta United FC.Tennis player Naomi Osaka, a two-time Grand Slam winner, refused to play her semifinal tennis match in the Western & Southern Open on Aug. 27. Osaka tweeted, “Before I am an athlete, I am a Black woman. Watching the continued genocide of Black people at the hands of the police is honestly making me sick to my stomach.” (tennis365.com, Aug. 27) Osaka is of Haitian and Japanese heritage.National Football League teams including the Detroit Lions, the Washington football team, Indianapolis Colts and seven others turned their practice sessions into press conferences and discussions to protest police brutality and systemic racism.College football players walked off their respective practice fields to march on their campuses in solidarity with Black Lives Matter at Ole Miss, Oklahoma University and University of Kansas on Aug. 27.The National Hockey League postponed all its games for Aug. 27 and 28.Whatever happens going forward, the NBA players’ two-day strike has made an indelible and historic impact, bringing a whole new awareness to the struggle for social change in the United States and around the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Single Bench of Justice Navin Chawla noted that as the elections for the Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh has been scheduled on 05.07.2020, no case for passing an interim order for protection is made out at this stage. The order has come in a writ petition moved by the Chairman of the UP State Bar Council challenging the order dated 15/05/20 wherein he was restrained from performing his duties as the Chairman. The Petitioner argued that BCI’s general power of issuance of directions as contained in Section 48-B of the Advocates Act, 1961 does not extend to restricting the Chairman of the State Bar Council from discharging his duties. It was also argued by the Petitioner that BCI does not have the jurisdiction to pass an order removing/restraining the Chairman of the State Bar Council from acting in that capacity. BCI, on the other hand, submitted that it is vested with such power under Section 7(1)(d) and 7(1)(g) of the Act and Rule 12(D)(18), Part II of the Bar Council of India Rules. BCI further submitted that in any case, the term of the Petitioner as Chairman of the Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh has come to an end as on 08.06.20 and the fresh elections have been called for the Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh and are now scheduled to be held on 05.07.20. It was further submitted that the complaint against the petitioner has been made by 13 out of 24 members of the Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh and are of serious nature and in a Resolution passed on 17.06.2020 the Petitioner has been granted time till 30.06.2020 to file a reply to the allegations made against him. In light of these submissions, the court observed that the Petitioner shall be at liberty to file his response to the allegations made, as contained in the Impugned Order dated 15.05.2020, with the BCI. The court further said: ‘In case any such reply/representation is made by the petitioner, the Bar Council of India is directed to consider the same expeditiously and in any case within a period of two weeks from the receipt thereof and pass a Speaking Order thereon.’ The court will next take up the matter on September 3. Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The cause of death was asphyxia due to strangulation and the doctor who conducted post mortem opined that the death was homicidal.The trial court convicted the husband, father-in-law and the mother-law of Sahodara Bai for her murder. The case was wholly based on circumstantial evidence. The evidence of one Kishore Kumar, the brother of deceased, was heavily relied on by the court to note that there was a history of animosity between the deceased and her husband and in-laws. The court ruled out other causes of death. There was no evidence of theft or house-breaking in the house. The suicide theory was also ruled out as there were scratch marks found on her neck.The High Court sustained the conviction of the husband but acquitted the mother-in-law. The father-in-law died during the pendency of the appeal.The High Court went on to state that since the incident had taken place inside the privacy of the house, the onus was on the persons residing in the house, to give an explanation. In such situations, it was noted that it is difficult for the prosecution to lead any direct evidence to establish the guilt of the accused. In this regard, the High Court referred to Section 106 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872, which states that the burden of proving a fact within the special knowledge of a person is upon him,The High Court opined that in such cases, while the initial burden to establish the case would be upon the prosecution, it would be of a relatively light character. There would be a corresponding a burden on the inmates of the house to give cogent explanation as to how the crime was committed. They could not get away by keeping quiet and offering no explanation.The Supreme Court approved the reasoning of the High Court by saying : “In our view, the most important aspect is where the death was caused and the body found. It was in the precincts of the house of the appellant herein where there were only family members staying. The High Court also found that the location of the house and the surrounding buildings was such that there was no possibility of somebody from outside coming and strangulating the deceased and that too without any commotion being caused or any valuable/jewellery missing”.The SC noted that the the fact that the family members were in the home some time before is also quite obvious. “No explanation has been given as to how the wife could have received the injuries. This is a strong circumstance indicating that he is responsible for commission of the crime. The appellant herein was under an obligation to give a plausible explanation regarding the cause of the death in the statement recorded under Section 313 of the Cr.P.C. and mere denial could not be the answer in such a situation”.While dismissing the appeal, the apex court observed that to examine whether the appellant has completed 14 years of actual sentence or not and if it is so, his case should be examined within a maximum period of two months for release in accordance with norms. Click here to read/download the judgmentNext Storylast_img read more
