first_imgTuesday Mar 31, 2020 Rugby Australia in all sorts of trouble as they announce 75% of staff will be stood down Rugby Australia have announced huge cuts in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, with up to three-quarters of their staff set to be stood down for the next three months, while the rest will remain on drastically reduced salaries. This comes as rugby in Australia braces itself for a $120 million hit.ADVERTISEMENTRA chief executive Raelene Castle announced what was described as “the toughest decision in the game’s history” on Tuesday after meeting with Rugby Australia Players’ Association boss Justin Harrison.Castle, who will take a 50 per cent pay cut, said she’ll ensure staff stood down would have access to “whatever government support is available” and that they were working closely with the RUPA to reach an “appropriate” agreement on player salary reductions.She said additional help from World Rugby and individual state governments would also ensure grassroots rugby could continue once it is safe to return to the field.“Today we have had to deliver the hardest news imaginable to our incredible, hard-working and passionate staff, that many of them will be stood down for a three-month period so that the game can survive this unprecedented crisis,” she said.“We could lose up to $120 million in revenue should it not be possible for any Rugby to be played in 2020. Of course, that is the worst case scenario, and we are very hopeful that we can recommence the Super Rugby season and domestic Wallabies Test matches at some point this year.“The measures we will implement from April 1, although extremely painful, are necessary to ensure the sport remains financially viable and to ensure that we are able to come out the other side of this global crisis, fully-operational and ready to throw everything into the rebuild.”ADVERTISEMENTThe announcement comes a day after RA reported a provisional loss of $9.4 million in 2019 and hours after USA Rugby were forced to file for bankruptcy when their financial woes were exacerbated by the coronavirus shutdown.RA had last week announced a makeshift five-team domestic competition featuring a Western Australian team when international travel restricted normal Super Rugby fixtures.That was swiftly postponed until at least May 1, with a think tank now set to be formed to assess what professional rugby may look like in Australia in the short and long-term future.

first_imgThe Southern Workers Assembly “Safe Jobs Save Lives” campaign released this statement on May 2 after the April 28 presidential “Get back to work” order was issued.On April 28, Workers Memorial Day — a day when the labor movement commemorates workers who have died on the job — and while the U.S. tops a staggering 61,000 deaths related to COVID-19, President Donald Trump utilized his powers under the Defense Production Act to order meat and poultry processing plants to stay open.Meat processing plants are COVID-19 hotspots of infection. This is another move which prioritizes corporate profits over the lives of workers, many of whom are Latinx, African American and immigrant.More than 150 of the largest U.S. meat processing plants operate in counties — many in rural areas of the U.S. South — where the rate of coronavirus infection is already among the country’s highest. Rates of infection around these plants are higher than those in 75 percent of other U.S. counties. The South is also a region where many of the governors are calling for workers to return to work, representing a strong base of anti-working-class racism and political conservatism.While the bosses claim the industry has thus far maintained sufficient production, union leaders have pointed out that 20 workers have died, and at least 5,000 meatpacking workers and 1,500 food processing workers have been directly impacted by the virus at 48 plants. Those in the South are impacted by industrial pollution that is unregulated, affecting the health of millions and making them more vulnerable to COVID-19.Meatpacking and slaughter companies can be found in every state in the South.With the Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans blocking OSHA [Occupational, Safety and Health Administration] from issuing a rule protecting essential employees during COVID-19, workers say they have little choice but to take matters into their own hands.Meatpacking workers all over the country, working in freezing cold rooms and unable to practice social distancing, have staged walk-outs demanding workplace safety from Kathleen, Ga., to Timberville, Va.Credit: Southern Workers AssemblyMeatpacking Workers in the South Need to Unite, Organize and Struggle!Join the Southern Workers Assembly’s Safe Jobs Save Lives Campaign:• Don’t Go to Work without a solid agreement that guarantees testing, monitoring, PPE [personal protective equipment], separation of work stations, 100% health care family coverage for virus treatment.• If you don’t have a union, form a workers’ committee right away and open up discussions with management on these issues, and depending what they say and do, move to take protective collective actions.• We call upon other workers and the general public to support meatpacking workers with a boycott of brands that refuse to abide by Safe Jobs Saves Lives mutual agreements.• Connect with other workers in industries and employment sectors in the Safe Jobs Save Lives Campaign by contacting [email protected] more on the campaign, go to southernworker.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The commercial robotics market was valued at USD 10.91 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 58.56 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 33.21%, during the forecast period (2021 – 2026). Companies MentionedNorthrop Grumman Corp.Kuka AGiRobot CorporationYaskawa Electric CorporationHonda Motor Company LimitedOmron Adept Technologies Inc.3D Robotics Inc.Alphabet Inc. Key Market Trends Drones in Military and Defense to Present Significant Opportunities for the Commercial Robotics MarketMilitary robot automation of the defense process is the next wave of military evolution. As automated systems and networking complement the Internet, communication is facilitated on a global basis. Over the past decade, there have been increasing levels of investment in surveillance and security in the defense sector.From 2017, the US military and its partners started expanding their use of drones, using them for logistical purposes, like resupply, while expanding their abilities to defend against enemy drones.The UAVs and drones are increasingly being adopted in the defense and military sector worldwide, due to their benefits, such as enemy tracking, use in war zones in reconnaissance of unknown areas or buildings, force protection, and to assist in search for lost or injured soldiers, as well as a real-time view of various missions.Thus, with the increase in defense spending globally and advancements in technology, military and defense account for a significant share in the commercial robotics market. North America to Dominate the MarketThe North American region is set to lead the market for commercial robotics due to the widespread acceptance of the infrastructure required for the adoption of commercial robotic systems.The steady technological advancements in the healthcare sector, in North America, is a major driver for the commercial robotics market in the region. The United States is home to some of the largest players in the market. It is a pioneer in the adoption of surgical robots, which is a primary factor influencing the growth of the market studied during the past decade.The defense and security sector also accounts for a significant portion of the demand, for robotics, in the region, as developed countries in these regions have focused on military modernization in the recent past. However, the airborne drones have seen a phenomenal increase in their application because of their heavy usage in security and surveillance.In 2016, the Pentagon, the Department of Defense deployed drones to spy over the US territory for non-military missions. These factors have increased the demand for security robots in North America.

About Author: Seth Welborn Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The risk of a recession is on everyone’s mind, both in the U.S. and around the world. Realtor.com notes that Germany is already teetering on the brink of recession and the U.K. is facing unrest related to “Brexit”, while in the U.S., a rapidly escalating trade war with China is increasing fears. However, despite these risks, real estate should be safe, unlike in 2008.”This is going to be a much shorter recession than the last one,” predicts George Ratiu, Senior Economist with realtor.com. “I don’t think the next recession will be a repeat of 2008. The housing market is in a better position.”About 2% of economists, strategists, academics, and policymakers believe a recession will start this year, according to a recent from the National Association for Business Economics. Thirty-eight percent believe one will begin in 2020, while 25% anticipate one starting in 2021. Fourteen percent expect it won’t materialize until after 2021.In the event of a recession, potential buyers holding out for a home price crash may be disappointed. According to realtor.com, there simply aren’t enough homes being built to satisfy buyers, and demand is unlikely to drop off any time soon.Additionally, the anticipation of a recession is likely to make the shortage even worse as potential sellers postpone selling if prices drop. Another risk will be potential layoffs and job shortages, meaning homebuying power will be limited.”If we do go into a recession, there will be layoffs,” says Ali Wolf, Director of Economic Research at Meyers Research. “If you move from a two-income household to a one-income household, it doesn’t change the desire to own. But it does impact the ability.”Realtor.com’s Ratiu believes prices will flatten, but likely not fall. Meanwhile, the number of home sales will also remain flat or potentially even dip, he believes.Other economists expect the recession to take a bigger toll on housing.”With people having PTSD from the last time, they’re still afraid of buying at the wrong time,” Wolf says. “But prices aren’t likely to fall 50% like they did last time.

The Court also observed that such medical reports must clearly state the history, examination findings, clinical diagnosis and its interpretation in simpler terms thereby assisting the judges and the Court in an effective manner. While observing so, the Court also advised the doctors to be “more cautious” while granting medical certificates for the purposes of submitting them as evidences before the court of law. A single judge bench comprising of Justice Subramonium Prasad observed that any “sketchy, wishy-washy medical documents” from any random private doctor having “ambiguous and incomplete documentation in illegible handwriting” will not be entertained by the Court in the future. Furthermore, the Court also went ahead to observe that in case any attempt is made by “questionable private doctors” to prolong or use lame excuse by taking help of unambiguous medical documents and in the event of submitting such sketchy medical reports, must be guilty of an offence under sec. 192 of the Indian Penal Code providing for “fabricating false evidence”.”Applications on medical grounds are now being made as a ruse to get interim bail and then prolong it for indefinite periods even though it is not required and thereby taking the Courts for a ride.” The bench observed. The observation came in a case challenging the bail granted to an accused on medical grounds due to “sketchy medical reports” given by jail authorities while granting bail. “It is found that that the medical reports which are filed by the Jail Superintendants are not clear and the medical terms which are used are not easily decipherable by Judges. The Reports do not bring out the correct picture and sketchy and incomplete reports are given by hospitals/doctors which are being used for grant of bail or extension of bail.” The Court observed. The accused was granted interim bail by the Additional Sessions Judge after submitting that he was suffering from various ailments and critical tumour in the chest as a result of which he was not in a position to breathe properly. The Court while considering the two medical reports dated 4th November 2020 and 23rd November 2020, it was observed that the Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) conducted by the jail hospital showed that it was the case of simple gynecomastia which means that there was no tumour and the same must have been clarified in the medical report, which was not done in the case. “When an FNAC in the jail hospital itself has ruled out any tumour, let alone any malignancy, and it has also ruled out any infection like TB, the medical report set to the same ought to have clarified that there is no tumour or malignancy as that operation was only for mere cosmetic purpose and not a medical emergency. Absence of such a clarification in a medical report does not assist the Court, rather the report conceals vital information from the Court.” The Court observed at the outset. Manner of Status Reports to be Filed by Jail Doctors The Court observed that the status reports filed by jail doctors must be explicit, explaining the complex medical terms not only in medical jargon but also in simple language. “The doctors preparing the Status Reports must clearly give their final impression and opinion as to whether the condition warrants any urgency/emergency. Further, the Status Report must explicitly state if the condition of the patient is likely benign/malignant/infective and state clearly whether surgery is needed for that specific condition or not.” The court observed. Furthermore, it was also observed by the Court that reports from many private hospitals do not disclose the correct diagnostic terms which can be appreciated by the judge who does not belong to the medical background. Opining thus, the Court held “Sketchy, wishy-washy medical documents from any random private doctor with ambiguous, incomplete documentation in illegible handwriting will not be entertained in future, rather viewed seriously with suspicion.” Setting out the contents as to how medical reports must be submitted by Jail Hospitals, the Court held that such reports must clearly state, first, what is the diagnosis; second, Whether it can be simply treated by giving medical treatment in the Jail Hospital and third, If there is any urgency and if it is an emergency then the nature of emergency must be clearly mentioned. In case where the patient is referred to a referral hospital, such reports must state the diagnosis in simple interpretation, whether the disease is treatable and with what emergency surgery and whether any investigation is required to be performed in the jail hospital. Procedure Where Medical Reports are Ambiguous and Create Suspicion in Judge’s Mind The Court also noted that in a case where such reports create suspicion in judge’s mind on account of it being ambiguous, such reports must be sent for scrutiny by a Medical Board consisting of two-three specialists from a government hospital so that they can endorse or refute such document and if it is found that the reports are only made to prolong the period of bail then, such report should be viewed seriously by the Court, which must consider initiating appropriate proceedings. “Advantage is being taken of the fact that Judges are not medical experts and are therefore unable to correctly appreciate the nature of the ailments. The accused try to get their bail extended even though they are not suffering from any serious ailments which require them to be released on interim bail.” The Court observed.Private Doctors Submitting Sketchy, Wishy-Washy Medical Reports Are Guilty Of An Offence Under Section 192 IPC Observing that filing sketchy medical reports will be viewed seriously by the Courts, the Court went ahead to observe that such doctors are guilty of committing an offence under sec. 192 of IPC which talks about fabricating false evidence. “All this leads to a lot of suspicion of a foul play and of ambiguity and can lead to serious doubt as to whether any procedure was at all done in the private hospital in good faith. A serious note is taken of such skimpy, wishy-washy medical documentation and the licence of such doctors should be cancelled if found to be lacking/falsely done.” The Court observed at the outset. Furthermore, the Court observed “All this reeks of several lacunae at several levels including the medical personnel both at the level of jail hospital and the private doctor’s level.” Click Here To Read JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Jeff Etheridge, Protestant chaplain on board Iwo Jima. “We are standing on their shoulders, so it’s really an honor that the families give us that type of trust, to be involved in this.”The naval courtesy is a custom extended to active duty members of the uniformed services, retirees and veterans who were honorably discharged, U.S. civilian marine personnel of the Military Sealift Command and dependent family members of active duty.“A member of the naval service is a member until the end and beyond,” said Capt. Grady Banister, commanding officer of Iwo Jima. “We, as the Navy, honor our Sailors from the beginning of their service until the end. As a Navy family, it’s important to honor the memory of the member, as well as provide closure for the (veteran’s) family.”Upon completion of the ceremony, the family of the departed veteran will receive a signed letter from Capt. Banister, rifle bullet casings from the 21-gun salute, a marked chart indicating where the burial at sea took place and a CD containing the photographs of the ceremony.Iwo Jima and embarked 24th MEU are currently deployed in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, June 11, 2012 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: seacenter_img Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Iwo Jima Holds Burial at Sea View post tag: Jima USS Iwo Jima Holds Burial at Sea View post tag: USS View post tag: Burial Share this articlelast_img read more

first_imgThey laughed, they clapped and they cheered as retailer Asda’s commercial bakery director, Huw Edwards, took to the stage at Birmingham’s famous Belfry to host Asda’s own internal Bakery of the Year awards.But aside from the opening banter, this was a serious competition. In total, 26 stores out of over 350 would be acclaimed regional winners. One by one, all 26 were invited up to the stage to receive their much coveted trophies from Edwards and various suppliers, who had come to support Asda on the night.From those 26, there would be two overall winners – one North, one South. Both would win a trip to Florida. Then, from those two would emerge one overall champion.As the audience held its breath, that accolade went to the Elgin store in East Scotland, winner of the North and also overall supreme store champion.Bakery manager at Elgin, Colin Donaldson said: “It’s unbelievable! It makes me very, very proud. This is an accolade for the whole team.”We have been working towards this since January, when the event was announced. I’m just so ecstatic. When you see all the competition, it’s unbelievable that we won it!”Along with Elgin colleague Nicky Munro, Donaldson paid tribute to regional bakery coach Keith Murray for all the support he had given them.Winner of the top store in the south was Taunton in Somerset. Andrew Lawrence, bakery manager said: “We are absolutely delighted! We train many incoming bakery managers as well as maintaining our own high standards of bakery and products.”He and Taunton colleague Bob Holley said: “When you do a really good job, you hope for recognition. This is what this accolade provides.”Holley added: “We have a great team. Any business needs that core of passion for what they do. I’ve been there for 15 years and some in the team even longer. There’s a lot of hard work and 3am starts.”Judging processHuw Edwards told British Baker: “All our bakeries are audited by our training team and our operations team for hygiene, systems and quality. They receive a red or green rating; red means we’ll help you, green is a pass. Those with the most greens became the 26 regional winners. Then, bakery operations manager Neil McGill and myself visited the final six together to choose the top two.”He thanked the bakers, sup-pliers and trading team and told the audience of 130: “We have the fastest-growing bakery business in the UK over the past three years (TNS). And our bakeries are also the fastest-growing business in Asda (Asda’s own data). I come to work because I want to be part of a winning team, as you all are.”Edwards also revealed to British Baker that he had bought 20 handmade peels. These are already in use in three stores and will soon be in use in 20 outlets. They will be used in the stores chosen to make artisan breads from scratch, that will be baked on stone plate ovens.”The bakers will earn the right to make them by being really good bakers and achieving 100% green scores. It will add to in-store theatre. There is something magical about walking in to a store and picking up a warm loaf of bread. Seeing it being made adds to that experience!”Stephen Batley, bakery manager of regional winner Halifax store, and his colleague, Saima Kauser, will be one store getting the peel. Batley said: “Bakery is what I have always wanted to do. I’ve been a baker for 21 years.

first_imgLast night, Alicia Keys threw a surprise concert in Times Square to support her upcoming Here LP. Keys invited a bevy of special guests to contribute to the musical celebration, including John Mayer and Questlove, who recently shared a stage at the Roots Picnic in Bryant Park, and hip-hop phenoms Q-Tip, Jay Z, and Nas.John Mayer and Alicia Keys go back in the pop and R&B world, having collaborated on her 2009 “If I Ain’t Got You”, which also features contributions from drummer Questlove. Once the pianist/singer/songwriter started into the throwback hit, Mayer eventually joined the stage and took the second verse upon his own vocals. The two sang the chorus together before Mayer took an incredibly bluesy guitar solo, meandering into his own “Gravity”. The two shared the song beautifully before returning back into “If I Ain’t Got You”.Thanks to YouTube user Annette Appuliese, you can watch the full song below:Among the other highlights from the surprise performance was Alicia Keys’ cover of “Imagine” to celebrate the late Beatle’s birthday, which eventually turned into a Jay Z and Nas-led version of “Empire State of Mind”.[H/T JamBase]last_img read more
