The night he collected the award it was £9.18”. (Which baffles The Capitalist a little, since a quick look at the interactive graphs on that same company website shows that the highest point the stock price reached – in 2007 – only just touched £2.50. Either way, its last close was 18.5p.)Not long after, Snook was back on the podium at the 2008 Ernst & Young UK Entrepreneur of the Year awards, scooping the top spot in the real estate and property services category.“As a forward-thinking company we have adjusted our focus to reflect the changing market, which has created sustainable business for the 21st century,” he said. “The recent launch of our new business stream, Rok Plumbing Heating and Electrical, is indicative of this approach…”That’s the same plumbing and heating division, of course, which recently sparked a profit warning because of “serious failings in financial controls” – the only inkling investors had of anything going wrong at the firm.LIKE FATHER, LIKE SONQuote of the week, courtesy of Labour party leader Ed Miliband, who yesterday became a father for the second time.“He is absolutely gorgeous,” Red Ed gushed to reporters outside the hospital. “He looks a bit like me…”WINTER SUNHere’s a reason to be cheerful about the situation in the Middle East – apparently, things in Iraq have improved to such an extent that tourism there is booming.Never one to pass up such an opportunity, the insurance industry is hot on the heels of that little nugget. In pops an email from AAIB Insurance Brokers, touting its latest product – comprehensive travel insurance to Iraq from anywhere in the world, including the usual personal accident, emergency medical and lost baggage cover, as well as evacuation and repatriation expenses… and “essential war and terrorism provision”.Pack your bags, folks.CITY GOES POPPY MADNot long to go now until Remembrance Day, and an inspirational tale from Aon Insurance’s Ben Hancock, who’s responsible for getting City workers to dig deeper than ever before into their pockets for the cause.Hancock left the army five years ago to join the City and, since then, has brought along his “old muckers” from the Forces for one day a year to help sell poppies in the area. Last year set a record of £60,000 in a day – but last Thursday, you, dear readers, positively excelled yourselves. Hancock tells me he was “blown away” by the generosity shown, smashing his target to raise £212,000 in a single day.City A.M. proudly displays a poppy on its front page, and urges you to keep buying! last_img read more

Buckle up for Munster v Leinster

Big day out: Thomond will be heaving with home supporters on Saturday but Leinster will make their presence knownBy Alan DymockON SATURDAY several Irish rugby fans may feel compelled to abandon their other halves, lock themselves in the living room and turn on the telly. Partners may be left to attend to long walks alone as fans sprint back to the car and the comfort of sports radio. Limerick may be a no-go area for anyone with eardrums.Big game boy: Paul O’ConnellIt’s Munster versus Leinster this weekend.Attempting a prediction on this one may be a bit like a fishing trip to the Dead Sea, but suffice to say there will be plenty of interest in the result.The hosts have recalled Felix Jones and Paul O’Connell to the starting lineup and with BJ Botha and Conor Murray returning to the bench there is more of an element of strength to this Munster side.Leinster, on the other hand, have brought back Sean O’Brien to partner Kevin McLaughlin and skippe Jamie Heaslip, with impressive youngster Jordi Murphy pulling out due to a long-term injury. The biggest surprise for them, though, is that they start Aussie code-hopper Lote Tuqiri at outside centre, partnering Gordon D’Arcy. This twins with the much smaller surprise – if you can even call it a surprise at all – that Ian Madigan is the fly-half Matt O’Connor and Leinster have favoured for the biggest game of their season so far, with Jimmy Gopperth left on the bench alongside the two props who are growing in stature daily, Jack McGrath and Martin Moore. MONTPELLIER, FRANCE – APRIL 27: Paul O’Connell, the Munster captain walk off the pitch after his teams defeat during the Heineken Cup semi final match between Clermont Auvergne and Munster at Stade de la Mosson on April 27, 2013 in Montpellier, France. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Still capable of magic?: Lote TuqiriMunster are third and Leinster are fourth in the table at the moment, but at this stage of the season that is irrelevant and this is particularly the case with such decorated rivals butting heads again.These two last met at Thomond in April, when Leinster won 22-16 thanks to a late Brian O’Driscoll try, Leinster’s only try of the game against Munster’s two. The great man won’t be on the field this time, so the opportunity to create a moment of magic will have to fall to someone else this time round. Is Tuqiri, in particular, still capable of such conjuring? If he isn’t then Casey Laulala and the tank-bashing defender James Downey will be opposite him hoping to greedily snatch the chance away from him.Munster: Felix Jones; Keith Earls, Casey Laulala, James Downey, Simon Zebo; Ian Keatley, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilycoyne, Mike Sherry, Stephen Archer; Donncha Ryan, Paul O’Connell; Peter O’Mahony Capt., Niall Ronan, James Coughlan.Subs: Damien Varley, James Cronin, BJ Botha, Donncha O’Callaghan, CJ Stander, Conor Murray, JJ Hanrahan, Denis Hurley.

Great ExpectationsWhat would you expect, when entering a 250 m2 loft at De Rotterdam, the biggest building of The Netherlands, (designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas), at the height of 143 meters, on the 43rd floor? Rotterdam seen from the air shows the omnipresence of water flowing through the city centre. The 25 meter total glass façade stretching from floor to ceiling, offers you a view of the Maas river, flowing through the city towards the Rotterdam harbour. You will look down upon the Erasmus Bridge (designed by UN Studio), the Markthal (designed by MVRDV), the city centre, Delft and on a clear day even The Hague is part of the view. Save this picture!Before 1Save this picture!Existing SituationFlow like the riverSuppose you go up 143 meters high and enter a living room with a 35 meter wide panoramic view on the Rotterdam cityscape. Which interior could match this overwhelming view? From above you will discover that the city is a flow: the water is an important part of the city. We took ‘flow’ as a design language for the interior. We used it for wavy floor and ceiling patterns and a 20 meter long curvy walnut wooden wall. With these gestures we were able to create a big open 150 m2 living area with grandeur and create places within this open space that feel intimate as well. The curvy walnut wall hides all the living necessities such as the television and storage room, as well as hidden entrances to bedrooms. To avoid that the huge glass walls will evoke an ‘unprotected’ experience of the open space, the long wavy screen of wood is used as a background. It covers the cupboards of the living room and kitchen. It guides you to the bedroom area, as the wall and doors are part of the bedroom. An 8 meter long ‘flowing’ cooking island transforms from a cooking area into a bar area and will give you one of the best panoramic views. This furniture is designed for small family rituals as well as big party events.Save this picture!© Hannah Anthonysz Save this picture!Plan 1.3Save this picture!© Hannah Anthonysz Two apartments, one luxury penthouseIn order to create a spacious home, 2 properties are combined into this one luxury penthouse. One apartment is designed as one big living area including kitchen. The second apartment includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a jacuzzi and a sauna – 6 meter long bathroom for the master bedroom with a view towards the Rotterdam harbour – a jacuzzi besides the bed in the master bedroom – a glass sliding door behind for semi outside experience. Even from the 2 person shower you can enjoy the view because you can look all the way through the 13 m long bathroom and bedroom.Save this picture!© Hannah Anthonysz Project gallerySee allShow less2016 Architecture iPhone Photography Awards AnnouncedArchitecture NewsAndré Chiote Illustrates Iconic Works by Schmidt Hammer Lassen for their 30th Annive…Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Rotterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Petitioner has the liberty to pursue remedy before the competent court”, the Court said.A bench of  Justices Chandrachud & MR Shah had reserved orders on the aforementioned writ petition  on May 11.The Court said that it was “unable to find any reason that warrants a transfer of the investigation to the CBI”.”The displeasure of an accused person about the manner in which the investigation proceeds or an unsubstantiated allegation (as in the present case) of a conflict of interest against the police conducting the investigation must not derail the legitimate course of law and warrant the invocation of the extraordinary power of this Court to transfer an investigation to the CBI”, the bench observed.The Court said that the accused person does not have a choice in regard to the mode or manner in which the investigation should be carried out or in regard to the investigating agency.  The dictum in the 2018 Bhima Koregaon case (Romila Thapar vs Union of India) was cited in this regard.The bench extensively referred to the precedents which held that transfer to CBI must not be ordered at the mere asking of the petitioner, and that it should be done only in “extraordinary circumstances” and “sparingly”.”Having balanced and considered the material on record as well as the averments of and submissions urged by the petitioner, we find that no case of the nature which falls within the ambit of the tests enunciated in the precedents of this Court has been established for the transfer of the investigation”, the Court held.The bench has however confirmed the earlier interim order passed on April 24, allowing the consolidation of several FIRs and their transfer to Mumbai. The interim protection granted on April 24 has been extended by three more weeks to enable him to avail appropriate remedy with respect to the FIR.  There is a further direction to the Mumbai Police Commissioner to provide him protection.The Court has also clarified that there should not be any further FIRs against him on the same cause of action, and quashed the subsequent FIRs following the dictum in TT Antony’s case.BREAKING: Supreme Court extends protection of #ArnabGoswami against coercive steps by three weeks. Goswami allowed to pursue appropriate remedy. Mumbai Commissioner ordered to ensure protection of Goswami.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 19, 2020The Court also made certain notable remarks regarding press freedom in the judgment.India’s Freedom Will Rest Safe As Long As Journalists Can Speak To Power Without Being Chilled By A Threat Of Reprisal: SC [Read Judgment] “Article 32 of Constitution of India entrusts the court to protect Fundamental Rights. Journalistic freedom lies at core of Freedom of Expression. India’s freedom of press stays as long as journalists can speak truth to power”, continues J. Chandrachud. #ArnabGoswami— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 19, 2020BackgroundThe FIR sought to be quashed by Goswami was lodged at the instance of Irfan Abubakar Shaikh, secretary of the Raza Educational Welfare Society alleging that his channel communalised the incident of a large gathering of migrants at Bandra.The bench had also granted interim protection from coercive action on the FIR till delivery of the judgment.During the course of hearing, the bench orally had observed that appropriate remedies were available for Goswami in the Bombay High Court, be it in the form of anticipatory bail or for quashing of FIR.In furtherance of the above, Court had orally observed that special exemption from normal processes as envisaged under the Criminal Procedure Code cannot be made.”We should not create an environment where anybody in particular is exempted from the normal course of proceedings” Court pointed out.Senior Advocate Harish Salve had appeared for Goswami and vociferously argued in favour of journalistic expression, stating that the investigations were outright harassment for his client and an attempt at curbing freedom of free speech.”There has to be a balance between Article 19(1)(a) and sanctity of the criminal investigation. Either hear our matter on merits or transfer the matter to CBI. There could be a chilling effect on the freedom of press”, Salve urged, praying that the matter be taken over by the CBI from hands of the Mumbai police.This was opposed by Kapil Sibal, Senior Advocate appearing for the State of Maharashtra, submitting that the transfer of case to CBI would mean “investigation will go into your hands”.This statement was seriously objected to by Tushar Mehta, Solicitor General of India.In this context, Salve said, “Mr. Sibal’s statement shows the need to transfer the case to CBI. This is a political problem between state and centre and I have been caught in a crossfire”.Solicitor General said that he has no sides to take in the case, and was not saying that the Court should accept or reject the prayers of the petitioner.”This a peculiar case because the case is not against a person but against the society. The case is where the accused has no faith in police and the police has also come to court to “insulate” its investigation”, SG said, alluding to the application filed by Maharashtra police in the top court alleging that Goswami was abusing the interim protection granted to him by the Court.The SG also added “12 hours questioning towards a citizen in such type of case, is really disturbing, I think”.Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal submitted that Goswami was indulging in “pure communal violence”.”Stop this communal violence and communal mongering. Decency and morality you [Arnab] need to follow. You are stigmatising people by way of sensationalising things” – Sibal had urged.In rejoinder, Salve submitted that making critical comments on the issue of Markaz meeting of Tablighi Jaamaat cannot be construed as disruption of communal harmony.”They are trying to stifle an unpleasant voice. The real purpose is to teach a journalist a lesson, by asking very silly questions during the investigation in the case”, Salve had asserted.Click here to download JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The world is opening up as no one can stay indoors for very long, but compliance of Covid-19 protocol becomes all the more necessary when one starts moving outdoors more often.”The background of the CaseOn 18th September, the Madhya Pradesh High Court had observed that “law, whether statutory or in the shape of the executive instructions deserves respect & obedience, as much from a common man as from a leader, a political functionary and even the head of State.”The Division Bench of Justice Sheel Nagu and Justice Rajeev Kumar Shrivastava, was hearing a plea seeking directions for respondents authorities to take action to restrain the function organized by the political parties in the State.Further, the Madhya Pradesh High Court (Gwalior Bench) on Saturday (03rd October), in the public interest, passed some interim orders to prevent the Political Congregation in the State (specifically in the 9 districts falling within the territorial jurisdiction of the Bench).The Bench of Justices Sheel Nagu and Rajeev Kumar Shrivastava had instructed the State Authorities to invoke penal provisions of DMA, IPC against political/governmental/state or social functionaries (Para (E) of the order dated 03.10.2020).Court proceedings on 09th OctoberThe Petitioner in the matter filed IA 5562/20 for impleading Union of India and Election Commission of India as a party, IA 5563/20, for taking certain documents on record, IA 6066/20 seeking interim relief and IA 6084/20 for direction to take penal action against political leaders and members of political parties and executive authorities who have allegedly failed to ensure the following of Covid-19 protocol.After due consideration IA 5562/20 and 5563/20 were allowed by the High Court.The Petitioner also pointed out in the said IA with the aid of certain photographs that on 4th, 5th and 6th of October, 2020, congregations of much more than 100 persons took place in Gwalior and Datia without following Covid-19 protocol where several political and State functionaries were present witnessing blatant violation of Covid-19 protocol and the order passed by this Court on 03.10.2020 in the present petition.Observations of the CourtThe Court observed that the on-going process of bye-election to various legislative assembly constituencies in and around the district of Gwalior is the primary cause of congregations and widespread breach of COVID-19 protocol (the restrictions and precautions laid down and published by the Central Government, State Government and District Magistrates from time to time).It was also informed to the Court, that in the recent decision taken on 05.10.2020 by the Central Government and on 08.10.2020 by the State Government the capping of a maximum of 100 persons in a congregation in the non-containment zone has now been relaxed prescribing no maximum limit.In view of the submissions, the Court issued abovementioned direction for the authorities that no one howsoever big should be allowed to go scot-free without being subjected to the rigours of the penal provision on the occasion of breach of Covid-19 protocol.Lastly, the Additional Advocate General Shri Mody was directed to answer the following questions:-(i) Whether any FIR was lodged against any of the political and State functionaries on whose behalf and behest and in whose presence the aforesaid congregations took place, and if not then why?(ii) Whether the direction contained in operative Para (E) of the order dated 03.10.2020 of this Court passed in the present petition was complied with or not?The matter has been posted for further hearing on Monday i.e. 12th October, 2020Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
