It represents the miner’s first major push outside its core gold-mining business.Equinox shares jumped nearly 12 per cent in Toronto after the announcement yesterday, signalling some expectation of a counter-bid from the Chinese metals powerhouse. Barrick shares shed five per cent, suggesting not all investors agree with the move to diversify.Already the world’s largest gold miner, Barrick will double its position in copper with the acquisition. Prices for the industrial metal have risen more than sevenfold in the past eight years as supplies lag the surging needs of China and other developing economies.Equinox, an Australian company listed in Toronto and Sydney, owns the Lumwana copper mine in the rich Zambian copper belt and most of the Jabal Sayid project in Saudi Arabia.Barrick’s bid represents an 8.7 per cent premium over Equinox’s Thursday closing price. The all-cash bid is 16 per cent higher than the £4bn offer that Minmetals presented earlier this month. The proposal underscored China’s growing prominence in the global race for resources. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Adsautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Portugal make history as they retain the U20 European Championship title

first_img Portugal make history as they retain the U20 European Championship titleFor the first time ever, Portugal clinched back-to-back titles in Rugby Europe’s U20 European Championship, matching the feat of Georgia. In an echo of last year’s triumph, they defeated Spain in the final in front of a full house in Sérgio Conceição Stadium in Taveiro (Coimbra).But how did Portugal and Spain end up in the final? What of Romania or Russia, two sides who in the past have had a major say in the competition?Well, there were some surprises. Who would have thought that the Netherlands would claim a spot in the semi-finals? The Dutch aren’t accustomed to battling it out so deep into tournaments, but they reached the last four for the first time by ousting Romania in an outstanding nail-biter that finished 40-38.Romania lacked the speed and capability to suppress the Netherlands’ back-line attack and conceded three tries in each half. It wasn’t enough to dominate the scrum or lineout, as the Romanians gave away too much possession through handling errors. In contrast, the Netherlands were clinical behind a quick and impressive pack.Dutch class: the Netherlands (left) came up in leaps and bounds, making the semis (Antonio Fernandes)Despite a last-minute try by Romania, their chances of levelling the score were shattered as the conversion went wide. So history was made and the Netherlands advanced to a semi-final against the home team, Portugal. The Dutch dream versus the 2017 champions.Due to a vacancy left by Germany, a regional Portuguese side completed the eight-team line-up and was easily defeated by the Portugal national side in the quarter-finals. The semi-final was a close affair for long stretches but Portugal proved too strong for the Dutch in the scrum and emerged 22-7 winners.The Netherlands then lost the bronze-medal match 38-7 to Russia, but their growth between 2017 and 2018 has been impossible to miss. In the future they will need to figure out how to counter their opponents’ scrum and to be more disciplined at the breakdown.One player to watch in the coming years is Kevin Krieger. The No 8 and captain played a huge role in the Netherlands’ success in this competition.Another name to remember is Marc Mistoun, a powerful inside-centre who always threatened to break the line and score tries. He can also kick at goal, with his accuracy off the tee instrumental in the victory over Romania.Romania with plenty to ponderSome may be surprised to hear that Romania – a fixture in the senior World Cup – are failing to achieve higher placings at U18 or U20 level in the last couple of years. Third place is the best they’ve managed recently at youth level.Romania U20 have big athletes, with a brutal and powerful drive giving them dominance in the pack. Valentin Matache and Peter Chiriac were two of the best forwards in the competition, with that aggressive physicality that Romanians are known for.But their game execution became stale because of a lack of speed in the build-up plays and insufficient strength at the breakdown.Might of the maul: forward power is never a problem for the Romanians (Antonio Fernandes)After losing to the Netherlands, Romania went on to secure fifth place by beating Portugal Regional Centro-Norte and Ukraine by handsome margins. Yet you could see real issues in the open play, as poor passes and knock-ons ended some interesting moves.There are ideas there but rugby is quicker now than ever before, forcing players to be quicker and agile, and the Romanians lost that battle against the Dutch.Fifth place behind Portugal, Spain, Russia and the Netherlands is a sign that something is wrong and it must be addressed if Romania are to close the gap on Portugal and Spain.More pain for SpainThis is not proving a great year for the Spanish union after failing to get to Japan 2019 and incurring heavy suspensions for five players that will take some quality from their set-up.Their U20 side was again close to achieving the dream of qualifying for the World Rugby U20 Trophy with superb performances in the quarter- and semi-finals. In the first match, Spain brushed aside Ukraine 81-0, with openside Simon Zubizarreta delivering a fine exhibition.Kicking on: Juan Carrasco kicks points for Spain v Russia before injury intervened (Antonio Fernandes)The Spanish players looked fresh and composed, slick moves easing their passage to the final. Russia, stronger at the scrum, never really menaced Los Leones, coughing up possession.Although not the biggest team around, Spain showed that a combination of speed, agility and intensity can unlock most opponents. Wing Lucas Martin, a real speedster with good handling skills, and Juan Carrasco were two who caught the eye in the first two games.Unfortunately, injury cost Spain the services of their fly-half Carrasco for the final against Portugal. It dealt a serious blow to Spain as he was the one who set up most of the plays or took pressure off his team with a smart kicking game.That wasn’t the only problem for Spain as their rivals would put an end to their dream.Portugal turn on the style Victory over Spain in Coimbra clinched back-to-back European U20 titles for Portugal. Francisco Isaac reports on a championship of thrills, spills and surprises Champions: Portugal celebrate after their convincing defeat of Spain in the final (Tatiana Contreiras) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Portugal conceded only one try in three games, an all-time best in the competition and evidence of the rich promise they have at youth level.Former Portugal captain Luís Pissarra is the mastermind behind the coaching team and Portugal have won nine of their last ten games, the only defeat coming against Japan in the U20 World Rugby Trophy last September.What are the secrets behind Portugal’s victory in 2018? Perfection in every area of the game. Against Spain, they won five of their opponents’ scrums, pushing back Spain to win penalties that drove the home team forward.Portugal seized every opportunity to turn over the ball, showing real prowess in the breakdown, something that Spain never managed to do.Nuno Mascarenhas, already a senior international, José Roque, João F Vital and Manuel Pinto are some of the Portuguese forwards that provided that consistency. In the final, flanker Pinto stole Spanish ball on six occasions, attacking the breakdown with speed and wit.Try time! Portugal scrum-half Duarte Azevedo crosses Spain’s line in the final (Antonio Fernandes)But more than anything, what paved the way to the title was the tackling and defensive strategy. Portugal missed only ten of their 100 tackles, closing every gap and space that Spanish players tried to escape through.Rugby fans all over the world remember that Os Lobos in 2007 were recognised for their fearsome and brave tackling, showing a relentlessness that took most by surprise.At U20 level, missing a tackle doesn’t seem to be an option as they showed during the whole competition. Additionally, Portugal mounted strong attacking lines with Manuel Cardoso Pinto – remember that full-back who scored one of the best tries in the 2017 European Championship? – and Rodrigo Marta wreaking havoc in the Dutch and Spanish lines.Duarte Costa Campos, Martim Cardoso and Duarte Azevedo were Portugal’s try-scorers in the final, with João Lima and Simão Van Zeller adding extras with the boot. Lander Mujika kicked Spain’s solitary penalty in what proved a 25-3 reverse.The European Championship will return in 2019, with doubt remaining over Germany after they failed to appear in Portugal due to budget issues. Luxembourg, Belgium and Czech Republic declined an invitation to replace Germany this year due to a lack of preparation time, leading to a Portuguese regional side stepping in.Portugal will now prepare for the World Rugby Trophy taking place in September in Romania. Fiji, Samoa (relegated from last year’s U20 World Cup), Uruguay, Namibia and Hong Kong are some of the teams that have already booked their place in the competition.Samoa, being tackled during the 2015 Junior World Cup, are back in the Trophy competition (Getty)Pissarra, the former Lobos international scrum-half and coach of Portugul U20, spoke with us after this championship…RW: Luís, were Portugal the best team? What was the secret to beating Spain?LP: For me, Portugal were the strongest team through the tournament. In the final, Spain had ten minutes of dominance but we quickly recovered and started to work very well in the breakdown. We controlled the game from that moment until the final whistle.Our wins against Spain and Netherlands go way beyond strategy or good performances, it’s about the group and the ‘family’ we have built. The team believed it was possible to win the tournament and they followed the game plan to perfection.No doubt that the way we tackle, the pressure we apply and our aggressive work in the breakdown took our adversaries by storm. The scrum was also important to win space and show dominance.Pass master: Luis Pissarra, the current Portugal U20 coach, in action at the 2007 World Cup (AFP/Getty)RW: Do you feel the overall quality of the tournament compared well to 2017?LP: I think the absence of Belgium and Germany was felt throughout the competition. Russia and Romania were a bit under the radar, but Netherlands showed they are developing quite nicely. Spain are doing an excellent job and deserved the spot in the final.RW: How will your team prepare for the U20 World Rugby Trophy?LP: Now starts the hardest part. We have to be strong mentally and physically as we are going to be away from home for two weeks in September. We are going to face Fiji, Uruguay and USA or Canada in our pool, so it will be hard and challenging.FINAL DAY SCORESChampionship final: Portugal 25-3 SpainBronze final: Russia 38-7 NetherlandsFifth-place final: Romania 76-13 UkraineSeventh-place final: Poland 29-19 Portugal Regional Centro-Norte RUGBY WORLD INDIVIDUAL PRIZESPlayer of the Tournament: Nuno Mascarenhas and João Lima (both Portugal)Best tackler: Daniel Barranco (Spain)Best forward: Kevin Krieger (Netherlands) and Manuel Pinto (Portugal)Best back: Rodrigo Marta (Portugal)Best try: Manuel Cardoso Pinto, for Portugal v NetherlandsBest referee: Neil Chivers (England)last_img read more

Statement of the International press freedom mission to Nepal

first_img January 17, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Statement of the International press freedom mission to Nepal News NepalAsia – Pacific Organisation Follow the news on Nepal MISSION STATEMENTInternational Press Freedom and Freedom of Expression Mission to NepalAt a press conference today in Kathmandu marking the end of the fourth International Press Freedom and Freedom of Expression Mission to Nepal, the mission members welcomed the progress on reforming the media environment since April 2006, whilst noting that much remains to be done and support must be made available for the continued development of the media. Moreover, the International Mission raised serious concerns about press freedom violations taking place throughout the country, particularly as impartial and independent media coverage will be essential for holding free and fair elections and promoting the democratic process.Press Freedom ViolationsJournalists, media workers and media institutions continue to be harassed and threatened within a growing culture of impunity. The Federation of Nepali Journalists has recorded 652 incidents of press freedom violations between April 2006 and December 2007. The International Mission condemns the murders of Birendra Sah and Pushkar Bahadur Shrestha, and the disappearance of Prakash Singh Thakuri, and calls for the prompt and thorough investigation of these cases by the judicial authorities with full assistance of all relevant individuals and groups, in order to bring those responsible to justice. In particular, the Mission urges the Maoist leadership to form a committee of investigation into the disappearance of Prakash Singh Thakuri, as was done in the case of Birendra Sah. The International Mission stressed the crucial importance of the trials of those accused in these cases being fair and transparent.Constituent Assembly ElectionsThe International Mission spoke with government ministers, political party leaders, community leaders and the security forces about the importance of the elections proceeding as scheduled and supporting an independent and unobstructed media to ensure a free and fair vote. Attacks, threats and interference in the media are unacceptable and deny the public’s right to access independent and diverse information. The Mission calls for the government and political parties to undertake and publicise measures to ensure the safety of journalists and media workers. The Mission will send a short-term observation team during the elections to focus on the media situation.The International Mission urges the national and local media to provide independent and impartial coverage of the elections, avoiding biased content. In this regard, the Mission calls on the media to abide by professional standards in accordance with international principles, and to engage in an open and constructive dialogue with the Election Commission and other relevant groups for delivering fair and impartial content.The International Mission is very concerned about reported cases of hate speech and violence-promoting content, and strongly appeals to all media throughout the country to work professionally, in a manner conducive to ensuring lasting peace.Legal ReformThe International Mission welcomes the amendment of the Working Journalists Act and the enactment of the Right to Information Act, noting the need to ensure their prompt and proper implementation.The International Mission also stressed the need for strong constitutional protection of freedom of expression and press freedom, as well as the reform of the broadcast law and transformation of the state media into public service media, offering diverse programming serving the needs of all in society. The Mission calls for the recommendations of the High Level Media Advisory Commission to be implemented, bringing clarity to the management of broadcasting frequencies, creating a three-tier (commercial, community and public) broadcasting system, administration of licenses, allocation of public advertising and governance of public service media. An enabling environment should also be created for internet-based media.Journalists’ and Media Workers’ RightsThe International Mission requests media institutions to provide journalists and media workers with fair and decent working conditions, as well as calls for negotiations between trade unions, media management and media workers to be held in a constructive manner. The expression of workers’ demands should not unnecessarily interfere with the public’s right to information.Inclusion of Marginalised GroupsThe International Mission calls upon media managers to ensure women are provided equal opportunities for employment, pay and promotion. The Mission also asks media institutions to ensure staffing at all levels representing diversity, including marginalised groups such as Dalits, indigenous nationalities, Madhesi and religious minorities.Follow-Up to the MissionThe International Mission will be releasing a full report in the coming weeks, including a list of recommendations for media development as discussed with the various stakeholders in Nepal. Together with the national media actors, the International Mission will work towards the creation of a comprehensive coordinated ‘roadmap’ for media development. Organisations represented on the Mission are ready to provide support to the Nepali stakeholders as requested in their efforts to ensure press freedom and media development and will call upon other media support organisations to join.Information about the MissionThe International Mission met with government ministers, political party leaders, community leaders, the election commission, police, armed forces, civil society, international community and a broad cross-section of the media in Kathmandu. The Mission also visited the Bara and Parsa Districts (where Birendra Sah and Pushkar Bahadur Shrestha were murdered) and Kanchanpur District (from where Prakash Singh Thakuri disappeared). Prior International Missions to Nepal occurred in July 2005, March 2006 and September 2006.The International Mission incorporates a dozen international organisations, including UN agencies, global media associations, freedom of expression advocates and media development organisations. Those organisations participating in the January 2008 mission included ARTICLE 19, Hirondelle Foundation, International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), International Media Support (IMS), International Press Institute (IPI), Internews, Reporters Without Borders (RSF), Open Society Institute (OSI), UNESCO, World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) and World Press Freedom Committee (WPFC).The International Mission thanks the Federation of Nepali Journalists and other national organisations involved in preparing and hosting the visit, acknowledging the crucial importance of close cooperation with national actors and ensuring a nationally driven process.

The court has also asked all the district and sessions courts in the city to collect the inputs from the Bar Associations of their respective court complexes for the “Phased/Graded Restoration to Normalcy Plan” for the courts in Delhi, The said notification states that: ‘During such suspension of functioning, the hearing of the cases is limited to matters of extremely urgent nature or urgent nature. There has been negligible filing of fresh cases during the lockdown, it can be thus expected that there would be a deluge of fresh cases on return to normalcy which may be quite difficult to handle. All these problems pose a big challenge to the justice delivery system.’ Highlighting that there are almost 8 lakh cases pending before the district courts and around 80,000 cases before the High Court, it would not be feasible to open the courts immediately for everyone after the lockdown. ‘Therefore, the moment courts are thrown open, it would be difficult to control the rush for the purposes of ensuring all important and crucial aspects related to social-distancing. Obviously, the courts cannot be converted into hotspots’, the letter states. The letter further claims that it may not be possible at this juncture to predict a definite cut-off date for resumption of normal functioning of the court system, considering that there is no certainty when the threat of the pandemic shall be over and the requirement of social distancing, no longer necessary. Therefore, it states, that return to normalcy would require a graded action plan in a phased manner, in advance. While highlighting that the involvement of the Bar Associations would be necessary to ensure the success of any such plan, the letter puts down the following concerns that need to be addressed by any such plan: Gradual expansion in stages, of the nature of cases to be put in the “urgent” category for the purpose of hearing by enlisting well-defined categories of priority cases. Ensuring availability of proportionate court infrastructure during all these phases till restoration of complete normalcy. Making guidelines for restricting entry into courts and social distancing norms to be followed in the court complexes for all the stakeholders including Judges, court staff, lawyers and litigants. Preparing guidelines for restricting entry into lawyers’ chamber areas in the court complex and social distancing norms to be followed in such areas. Running of Public utility services and canteen etc. in Court complexes. Availability of Infrared Thermometer, Masks, gloves, sanitizers for all the stakeholders. Installation of sensor-based devices, wherever possible to ensure minimum hand-contact.

By ordering status quo and directing the Speaker to put the disqualification proceedings on hold, the petitioner argues that the High Court has effectively put a stay on the power of the Speaker, CP Joshi, to exercise his powers. Thus, in light of the Kihoto Hollohan judgment, argues the Chief Whip, the decision of High Court is illegal and unconstitutional. “…it is respectfully submitted that the impugned order in so far as it directs ‘status quo’ in para 53 is concerned, which is in the nature of a quia timet order, is exfacie unconstitutional, illegal and in the teeth of the law laid down by this Hon’ble Court in Kihoto Hollohan v. Zachillhu (1992) Supp 2 SCC 651.” Further, it is argued that the petition filed by Sachin Pilot and the other 18 MLAs was not maintainable as it challenged the show cause notice issued to them, though there was no adverse Order against them. “…it is respectfully submitted that the Writ Petition filed by the (Rebel MLAs) was totally non maintainable and premature. Prayer B of the Writ sought to challenge only a notice dated 14.07.2020 issued by the Speaker calling for comments of the Respondents on the disqualification petitions filed against them under Para 2(1) (a) of the Tenth Schedule. There was absolutely no adverse order of any kind against the Respondents and as such the Writ Petition in so far as prayer B is concerned was completely non maintainable”, argues the petitioner. Additionally, Mahesh Joshi contends that the challenge to the constitutionality of Paragraph 2(1)(a) of Tenth Schedule is also not maintainable. “These prayers were also ex facie non-maintainable as the validity of the Tenth Schedule was extensively considered, deliberated and upheld by this Hon’ble Court in Kihoto’s Hollohan (supra). Even other wise, mere pendency of a challenge to a statutory/constitutional provision in a Writ Petition cannot and could not have the effect of negating the provision itself as has been sought to be done by the (High Court Order).” Furthermore, the petitioner highlights that the Apex Court had laid down that judicial review would not be available at any stage prior to the final decision taken by the speaker and, in this light, it is urged that the High Court overstepped its jurisdiction in passing an order for status quo. Moving on, the petitioner has averred that a case of prima facie defection has been made out against the rebelling Sachin Pilot camp, given that they indulged in “anti-party activities”. The petition, filed by VKC Law Offices, conclusively asserts that the question of disqualification is one that is to be decided by the speaker. “It is submitted that whether the Petitioner has made out a case for disqualification under Para 2(1)(a) of the Tenth Schedule is a pure and simple question of fact which the Speaker would decide. The Hon’ble High Court could not have prejudged and sat as an appellate authority over the allegations made in the disqualification Petitions.” This petition has been moved just days after the Rajasthan Assembly Speaker withdrew his plea from Supreme Court, which was against the High Court’s direction restricting him from going ahead with the disqualification proceedings. In that plea, it was argued that the High Court had exceeded its powers and interfered in a matter which was exclusively within the Speaker’s jurisdiction.The petition is drawn by Advocates Rajesh Inamdar, Javedur Rahman, Aditya Bhai and Amit Pai.
