Wales base: Home games will be played in Llanelli for now (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Of course we understand there is a bigger picture at play and the health of the nation and its individuals, which include our supporters, players, administrators and the many volunteers in our game throughout the country, must come first.Related: Wales squad for Six Nations 2020“On a positive note we are delighted that the international game returns this week, that the 2020 Six Nations Championship will finally be concluded and that we have an exciting Autumn Nations Cup tournament ahead of us.“We know the nation will be tuning in en masse and will be with us at Parc y Scarlets in spirit if not in person and we look forward to the day when we will all be able to gather together once again in more familiar circumstances at Principality Stadium.” Wales to play all Autumn Nations Cup home games at Parc y ScarletsWith the Principality Stadium unavailable due to it being used as the Dragon’s Heart hospital, the Welsh Rugby Union had made contingency plans to play Autumn Nations Cup games at a London venue. However, it has now been decided the best option is to play Wales’ upcoming Tests at Parc y Scarlets.The decision was made as it became clear ongoing issues around the Covid-19 pandemic made it increasingly less likely to see the return of paying fans.“It is no secret that more than three-quarters of the annual income which supports Welsh rugby at all levels comes directly from our international game and specifically from hosting Wales matches in front of capacity crowds,” said WRU CEO Steve Phillips of the decision.Related: Autumn Internationals schedule“That is why we made contingency plans to play matches in London and why we have waited as long as possible before resigning ourselves to the prospect of playing ‘behind closed doors’ in Wales.“This news, however inevitable it may have become during recent days, is a financial setback, but it has not been unforeseen and measures have been and will be taken to mitigate for our losses.

News September 13, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Another news website blocked NepalAsia – Pacific to go further News May 29, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the action of the Nepalese government in blocking access to the www.gorkhanews.com website on 9 September. Everest World Limited, which edits the site, said it had been censored because of “its stand against the curbs on the Nepalese press since 1 February.” The site gets its name from Nepal’s Gurkha people, who for generations have been recruited into an elite British army brigade.Since 1 February, most of Nepal’s 16 Internet Service Providers have sporadically blocked access to more than a dozen news websites, such as www.samudaya.org and www.insn.org on 30 June.______________________________________________________________21.07.2005Royal Army launches offensive in cyberspaceReporters Without Borders expressed concern at an escalation in violations of freedom of expression on the Internet by the Nepalese army, under the control of King Gyanendra since 1st February 2005. Websites have been blocked, bloggers threatened, discussion forums closed and emails increasingly put under surveillance.”Direct and indirect censorship imposed by King Gyanendra in February 2005 has made freedom of expression on the Internet all the more crucial. But the army and the government have extended their crackdown into Nepal’s cyberspace,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “We call for the end to blocking of websites and the authorities’ constant harassment of service providers”. Some 300,000 people use the Internet in Nepal and more than a dozen news sites set up by Nepal’s civil society or by the Nepalese community abroad have been blocked by service providers. The most recent, www.samudaya.org and www.insn.org, were made inaccessible, on 30 June 2005, by a majority of Nepal’s 16 providers, an error message appearing each time the URL is typed in for one of these sites.A military spokesman confirmed that these sites had been blocked at a press conference in Kathmandu but said they had been accused of working for the “terrorists”. A journalist on the daily Kantipur said however that the military authorities were angry that samudaya.org used familiar vocabulary to refer to the king and the highest government authorities. For their part, those who run samudaya.org deny that they support the Maoists. “If the ministry believes that we have supported the Maoists, we request the ministry to point out where, when and how”, the website’s directors said in a statement.Insn.org was apparently targeted for posting Maoist releases, but its presenters also deny favouring the rebels. “We post releases from the Maoists just as we post the king’s speeches and even an army video,” said one of the presenters.”We have never been warned by the army or service providers. There is no legal basis for the ban against us, since there is no specific law on the Internet,” one of the journalists from insn.org added.Around a dozen of the 23 news sites that have been blocked are linked to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), including http://www.cpnm.org and http://krishnasenonline.org, and which put out appeals for armed violence posted by “journalist combatants”.Following the February coup, the authorities ordered the closure of a very popular discussion forum on the site Nepalnews.com. In the following weeks, the presenters of a blog United We Blog were summoned by a military officer and reminded about their responsibilities for the contents of the blog. One of the presenters confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that the army Directorate of Public Relations (DPR), headed by General Depak Gurung, was taking more and more interest in activities on the Internet. Further, the DPR fait regularly puts pressure on journalists to influence their coverage of the conflict and to control content on sites dealing with Nepal by ensuring they put out armed forces communiqués.A technician at one of the kingdom’s major service providers, Mercantile, confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that the authorities were threatening to withdraw licences of service providers unless they obeyed the blocking orders. He also confirmed that teams from the royal army and the Nepal Telecomunications Authority (NTA) recently visited service providers’ offices to check the servers.Other local sources told the organisation that the authorities had already forced some providers to install software to filter email. For this reason, in May, Mercantile stopped handling customers’ emails for more than 48 hours for technical reasons. Since then some customers realised that emails dealing with Maoists were no longer arriving. Mercantile has not confirmed that he filters have been installed.

Gavin Newsom announced a partnership with the federal government Friday to provide three meals a day to needy seniors.The partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the state and local governments will provide eligible seniors with 21 meals a week, he said.“This partnership will allow for the ability for restaurants to start rehiring people or keep people currently employed and start preparing meals, three meals a day, seven days a week, and have those meals delivered to our seniors all throughout the state of California,” Newsom said. “We will provide an unlimited number of meals, no cap in terms of that support.”Pasadena spokesperson said local officials only just became aware of the program.“We are awaiting further information about the program to become available and hope that Pasadena can be a beneficiary of the federal and state funding to further assist the feeding of our seniors,” Lisa Derderian said shortly after the Governor’s announcement,.Newsom indicated there will be eligibility requirements for seniors, based in part on their income but also based on their risk of exposure to COVID-19, if they have a compromised immune system or if they have been directly impacted or exposed to the coronavirus.He said exact eligibility requirements will be decided at the local level.FEMA will cover 75% of the costs of the meals, with the state contributing a majority of the remaining cost, he said. Restaurants would be reimbursed at rates of $16 for breakfasts, $17 for lunches and up to $28 for dinners, Newsom said, calling the program the first of its kind in the nation.He also noted that in addition to providing business for restaurants that have been forced to dramatically scale back operations, the costs of meals will also generate tax revenue for local governments.“Now we have the ability to have a locally driven decision-making to start employing workers and get these restaurants reopened and provide hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of prepared meals every day delivered to our seniors throughout the state of California,” he said.The governor said the program will also have nutrition guidelines for the meals.“We want to make sure we are focused on locally produced produce,” he said. “We want to connect our farms to this effort. We want to focus our values throughout the state of California to get a lot of independent restaurants up and running again as well, and have a diversity of options. And make sure what we are sending to our seniors is low sodium, not high fructose drinks or sugary drinks and the like, so there’s guidelines that we’re putting out and we’re just very excited about this partnership.”Information on the program — dubbed “Restaurants Deliver: Home Meals for Older Californians” — is available on the state’s website at covid19.ca.gov.

Hedge scored a game-high 25 points, including 14 in the second half, to lead the Aggies to a 65-56 comeback victory in Lone Star Conference play Tuesday afternoon at the Falcon Dome. The game originally been scheduled for December before Cameron was forced to postpone events because of COVID-19 concerns. Stephanie Peterson added 12 points in the victory. Cameron (2-1 overall, 2-1 in conference) outscored the Falcons 35-21 in the second half. Nokoia White led UTPB (1-3, 0-3) with 15 points off the bench. Rory Carter added nine in the loss. Freshman Avalon Munoz finished with six assists. “Nokoia had her best game so far,” UTPB coach Rae Boothe said. “We are still looking for a rotation and we’re lacking leadership on the court. “We have to find a group the gels well together and until we do that we just have to work really hard.” The teams battled throughout the first quarter, but there were signs of the Falcons’ future struggles as they turned the ball over several times and sent the Aggies to the free throw line 11 times in the first 10 minutes. Boothe was not happy with the effort and quickly got that point across to the players before the second quarter. “Just trying to get them to play hard,” she said. “That’s the issue with this group, the level of intensity.” The pep talk seemed to inspire UTPB, which came out much more aggressively in the second quarter and finally caught and passed the Aggies on the scoreboard courtesy of Carter’s 3-pointers from the right corner with 3:52 remaining in the first half. The Aggies tied the game (26-26) on the following possession, with the Falcons answering with a 7-0 run that led to a 35-30 lead at halftime. UTPB held Cameron to just nine points in the second quarter, with the Aggies taking just two free throws. The Falcons’ momentum, however, didn’t carry over into the second half. Just as the third quarter reached the halfway mark, Cameron regained the lead on a field goal by Whitney Outon for a 40-39 lead. That sparked a 16-6 run by the Aggies, who finished the third quarter with a 54-45 lead and never looked back. White did her best to pull the Falcons back into the game with seven points in the fourth quarter, but Hedge answered right back with all 11 points for the Aggies in the quarter to cement the road victory. “We’ve got to have people rise to the occasion,” Boothe said. “We gave up 18 points on second chances and 16 points at the free throw line. “But every game we play is learning, so hopefully our key players will rise to the occasion. Every possession matters.” WOMEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Second half comeback leads to Cameron win over UTPB WhatsApp Pinterest Pinterest Facebook SportsCollegeLocal News WhatsApp TAGS

It said that the BCI and the State Bar Councils are “strongly in favour” of a 3 year minimum experience at the bar for being considered eligible to sit for judicial service exam.”Judicial officers not having practical experience at the bar are mostly found to be incapable and inept at handling matters”, BCI said in a press release.The BCI said that such judicial officers lack understanding of the aspirations and expectations of advocates and litigants in a proper and decent manner. Most of such officers are found impolite and impractical in their behaviour with members of the bar and litigants.”The inexperience at the Bar is one of the primary and major reasons for delays in the disposal of cases in the sub-ordinate Judiciary Trained and experienced judicial officers can comprehend and dispose of matters at a much faster pace, thereby leading to efficient administration of justice”, it added.Stating so, the BCI said that it will soon file an application to seek a modification of the order passed by the Supreme Court in 2002 in the case All India Judges Association v Union of India which removed the requirement of 3 year experience at bar for appearing for judicial service examinations.The BCI also said that it will also file an impleadment application in the recent petition filed in the Supreme Court challenging the notification issued by the Andhra Pradesh High Court which made 3 years minimum practice as an advocate a condition for applying for the posts of civil judge junior division. The petitioner in that case, Mr. Regalgadda Venkatesh, challenges Rule 5(2)(a)(i) of the Andhra Pradesh State Judicial Service Rules of 2007 which lays down such a condition.Last week, a vacation bench comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and Aniruddha Bose had issued notice on the petition but refused to stay the rule.The BCI said that it is filing another application to seek impleadment in the said matter as a party to “plead in favour of urgency and requirement to have a minimum 3 year experience at the Bar as a requirement to be eligible to sit in Judicial Service Exam”.Bar Council of India to move Supreme Court seeking modification of the order allowing fresh law graduates to become judicial officers.”Judicial officers not having practical experience at the bar are mostly found to be incapable and inept at handling matters”, BCI says. pic.twitter.com/CuesG76Kqm— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) January 3, 2021 Next Story
