The Australian batsman has been in his worst IPL form ever, scoring just 193 runs in six matches. Also, his lack of scoring at a high strike rate has put pressure on the middle-order. The right-handed batsman has scored 110, which is not Warner-esque at all.As per SRH’s new plan, they want two overseas batters, an all-rounder and Rashid Khan in the playing XI. This to a certain extent implies Warner’s return is nearly over.Kane Williamson as captain is certain to play. Also, he plays an important role in the middle as an anchor.Rashid Khan is their lead spinner and also a wicket-taker.Jonny Bairstow has been in red-hot form. The English batsman has scored 248 runs in 7 games. He is also the second-highest six-hitter with 15 sixes.Mohammed Nabi and Jason Holder will be their overseas all-rounder option.“He (David Warner) is not going to be playing in this game and that’s purely a decision based on the combination. We’ve come to the conclusion that at this stage two overseas bat, an all-rounder and Rashid Khan is our best combination. We looked at it very closely. Obviously, Bairstow’s form and Williamson’s form is at a great height and we are very thrilled with the way they are playing,” Moody said.SRH vs MI, IPL 2021: Divided SRH camp on Warner’s returnSRH newly appointed skipper Williamson opened up on dropping the Australian from their starting line-up, saying he is a world-class player and the SRH think tank will hold a number of conversations regarding his return to the playing XI.While he did not give a definite answer, he did not rule out of a possibility of giving Warner another chance in the upcoming fixtures.“Exceptional batting from Rajasthan, but we need to build on a few things. A number of leaders in the group and it’s important we stay right. He’s a world-class player and I’m sure a number of conversations will be held,” he said.However, SRH Head coach Trevor Bayliss, completely ruled out the possibility of Warner getting any chance soon. Although a tough decision, he said that Hyderabad would want to stick with the same playing combination going forward in IPL 2021.“Difficult decision, big decision but we wanted to try and change the makeup of the team. Try and help our bowlers with a few extra overs from another bowler. We have gone with Nabi in this game. Someone like Jason Holder in that middle order will help our pace bowling as well. We want to stick with the same team, rather than dropping players from one or two matches,” Bayliss said. SRH vs MI, IPL 2021: Big Question, Will David Warner return to SRH playing XI?

Alesana Tuilagi crunches big winger in thrilling Samoa and Fiji draw

first_imgTuesday Jul 28, 2015 Alesana Tuilagi crunches big winger in thrilling Samoa and Fiji draw Samoa and Fiji played out an extremely entertaining 30-30 draw in their Pacific Nations Cup clash in Sacramento, California at the weekend. There were plenty of big collisions, but none more enjoyable than this trademark Alesana Tuilagi tackle. It was another fascinating round of Pacific Nations Cup rugby, as the USA upset Rugby World Cup 2015 Pool B opponents Japan 23-18, while Tonga beat hosts Canada 28-18 in Burnaby.The battle for Pacific pride went the full 80 minutes as Samoa and Fiji couldn’t be seperated, despite a some great bits of running rugby. A late 78th minute penalty by Samoan replacement Patrick Fa’apale ended up cancelling out Fiji’s earlier 76th minute kick.A feature of the match was not only the high tempo, but the brutal clashes between some giant players. And there is no bigger than Alesana Tuilagi, who put a monster hit in on Waisea Nayacalevu, who at 6ft5 and over 100kg’s, is far from the smallest wing in world rugby himself.The crowd loved it, as did former US players Dallen Stanford and Dan Power, who both came out with a number of rugbyisms in commentary to keep the viewers entertained.“The biggest hit in Sacramento since the Beatles rolled through in the sixties!”Tuilagi’s younger brother, Vavae, actually made his debut for Samoa recently and was involved in number of highlights, including a big charge that sent USA back Thretton Palamo flying.The PNC pool stages conclude on Wednesday in Toronto when USA tackle Tonga, Pool B leaders Fiji face Japan and Canada meet Pool A leaders Samoa. The final rankings will then determine who faces who on the finals day in Vancouver on 3 August.View the big tackle below, and official highlights on page twoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

There will be lots of different ways that people can get involved, from sharing their passion for sports with local children, to lending a helping hand to spruce up a local community centre, to sharing some of their professional expertise with a local community leader.”Michael Wade, Chairman of Optex Group and the first Chairman of the Lloyd’s Community Programme, said:“The response by the Lloyd’s Market to the vision that was set over 20 years ago for a Lloyd’s Community Programme has been outstanding. A focus on education and employability projects in East London over this period has been a logical way to match the skill sets of our community to help our immediate neighbours.”Future events include:• Finals of the Tower Hamlets Schools Public Speaking Competition in the Old Library at Lloyd’s in March which is open to guests; and• Lloyd’s Cricket Cup for local primary schools at Brit Insurance Oval in April with volunteers needed to help on the day.Those interested in getting involved in these or other Lloyd’s Community Programme activities should contact [email protected] or call 020 7327 5484.For further information, please contactLouise ShieldTel: +44 (0)20 7327 5793 Fax: +44 (0)20 7327 5229 Email: [email protected] NashTel: +44 (0)20 7327 6272 Fax: +44 (0)20 7327 5229 Email: [email protected] to editors:1. The Lloyd’s Community Programme gives people working at Lloyd’s and in the Lloyd’s market the opportunity to ‘put something back’ into the community on their doorstep through volunteering. It is run by a management board of senior representatives from companies in the market and supported by the Community Affairs team at Lloyd’s and involves over 60 companies in the Lloyd’s market.2. Lloyd’s is very keen to support young talent in the market, participating in several market wide programmes, such as the National Skills Academy for Financial Services in Tower Hamlets College programme, which places local graduates in six-week placements in the Lloyd’s Corporation and the market, as well as Lloyd’s own graduate programme, which saw its first intake in September 2008.3.

Urgent call from Baltimore: Mobilize on May 1 for Freddie Grey

first_imgIssued by the Baltimore Peoples Power AssemblyNational call to mobilize in cities across the U.S. and around the world for:BLACK LIVES MATTER MAY DAY, FRIDAY, MAY 1, 2015SHUT IT DOWN FOR FREDDIE GREY ON MAY DAY — FRIDAY, MAY 1ST!TURN UP & STAND WITH THE PEOPLE OF BALTIMORE!AMNESTY FOR ALL ARRESTED PROTESTERS!EVERY 8 HOURS A POLICE OR VIGILANTE MURDER OCCURS IN THE U.S.!JAIL KILLER COPS NOW! END RACIST POLICE VIOLENCE NOW!#BLACKLIVESMATTER #BROWNLIVESMATTERJUSTICE FOR FREDDIE GREY & ALL FAMILIES IMPACTED BY POLICE TERROR AROUND THE COUNTRY! SHOW YOUR OUTRAGE ON MAY DAY!Greetings, sisters and brothers, from the streets of Baltimore:As we draft this appeal, the city of Baltimore is being occupied by a regional mobilization of police and the National Guard. The mass outrage over the slaughter of Freddie Grey has grown from protest to resistance. Baltimore is the “new” Ferguson, Mo. We need the intervention of all who have participated in the Black Lives Matter movement on a national level, and we need it now.No police have been arrested for the murder of Freddie Grey. No explanation for his death has been given except to say that it’s a “mystery”! More than 300 people have been arrested for resistance — while the cops are still free.We are calling on activists to turn Friday, May 1st, 2015, into BLACK LIVES MATTER MAY DAY.If you can organize to take it to the streets, the highways and the bridges, in the same way that you did last fall and winter, it would make a world of difference in the struggle for justice at this critical moment.We applaud the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 in Oakland, Calif., as well as the longshore workers in Charleston, S.C., for plans to shut the docks down on May Day in solidarity with the struggle against racist police violence.We believe that it’s important that the movement rise up again on May Day, International Workers Day. The young Black and Brown people who are being murdered by the police may not look like some outdated stereotype of a worker, but they are part of the working class. You should not have to have a job or be in a union to qualify.It’s time to get beyond outmoded notions about who is and who is not in the working class. The truth is that the fastest growing demographic of workers are unemployed or underemployed people of color, many of them undocumented migrant workers and women.If the Black Lives Matter movement can rise up again this May Day, it might just be the beginning of something bigger: a game-changer that broadens the movement as well as the way people think.On Saturday, May 2nd, we call upon all who are able to to come to Baltimore.

The irony is that the woman is not faithful to her religion, and she brings the mailman into a situation involving her husband.Writer and director Danny Legittino said the film’s original name was going to be “An Abundance of Evil” due to its “twisted” storyline.“My goal when I make a movie is I want people when they leave the theater or wherever they are watching [the film] to think, ‘What did I just watch?’” Legittino said.“The cinematography of it is really pretty,” editor Brad Lowe said. “There will be quick cutting. It will be fun to cut it together and to create [a] sense of urgency in the film.”The SFA is comprised of amateur students who have an interest in making movies.Assistant director Ariana Milligan said students from any major can get involved with the organization.“I joined to develop relationships with people that share the same passion to create things that I have,” Milligan said. “It’s a very diverse group of people.”Production designer Chandler McGovern said those involved in the organization learn all aspects of filming.“We learn about the process of making a film,” McGovern said, “from preproduction, to filming and to postproduction.”“It’s like a big family,” Legittino said. “You’d be surprised after three days of shooting of how close you get with everybody.”Legittino said “The Garden Sense” and three other short films shot in the fall semester will debut in April 2016 at the BLUU Auditorium.The Student Filmmakers Association meets every Thursday at 5 p.m. in Moudy North.

While observing so, the Court also opined that a judicial separation, instead of divorce by mutual consent cannot be granted in a mechanical manner. A division bench comprising of Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra and Justice NK Chandravanshi observed thus: “The provisions contained in Section 13-B of the Act, 1955 does not provide for existence of a ground like the ones contained in Section 13 for grant of divorce by mutual consent. There need not be a serious dispute between a married couple for seeking a divorce by mutual consent. It may happen in a given case that there is no quarrel or dispute between the couple but yet their actions and behaviour are not compatible with each other for living a happy and peaceful married life, therefore, they may seek divorce by mutual consent.” The observation came in an appeal challenging a decree of judicial separation passed by the Trial Court vide judgment dated 12th December 2018 in the proceedings for grant of divorce by mutual consent under sec. 13B of the Act. The parties, married since February 2017, remained together for only two days and had preferred a joint application for divorce by mutual consent after one year of marriage i.e. in March 2018. The Trial Court had passed a decree for judicial separation for a period of one year instead of divorce by mutual consent by referring to sec. 13A of the Act which provides for alternative relief in divorce proceedings. While passing the said decree, the trial court also went ahead to observe that the period of their staying together is so short that it is not possible that any serious dispute would have arisen between them. The High Court, while analyzing the said provision, observed that sec. 13A would attract only in those cases where the Trial Court is satisfied that it is just to pass a decree for judicial separation instead of mutual divorce. “The phrase “having regard to the circumstances of the case” requires the trial Court to find out the circumstances which compels it to pass a decree for judicial separation. Unless such circumstances exist, the trial Court is not entitled to pass a decree for judicial separation in a mechanical manner.” The Court observed at the outset. The Court also observed that the “Trial Court had assumed that the dispute between the parties might not be of such intensity which could force them to seek a divorce by mutual consent.”Observing that occurrence of serious dispute is not a prerequisite under sec. 13B, the Court held thus: “If an application is otherwise duly constituted and properly presented before the Court, it is not for the Court to search for a ground or a reason, which has compelled the parties to seek divorce by mutual consent.” In view of the aforesaid observations, the Court observed that the Trial Court should have passed the decree of divorce by mutual consent instead of decree for judicial separation. “Therefore, we allow the appeal, set-aside the impugned decree of judicial separation and instead pass a decree of divorce by mutual consent. Accordingly, the marriage between the parties solemnized on 20.2.2017 is dissolved by a decree of divorce by mutual consent. A decree be drawn accordingly.” The Court held.Title: Sandhya Sen v.
