first_imgMonday Nov 2, 2015 Sonny Bill Williams gives World Cup winners medal away to young fan, but gets given another one Having won the Rugby World Cup for a second time in succession, midfield star Sonny Bill Williams did something that those watching on could hardly believe. After a young fan took to the field and was tackled by security, SBW then escorted him off, and gave him his winners medal.Young fan Charlie Line, who is 14-years-old and actually not a Kiwi, but from Somerset, was taken down during the All Blacks’ lap of honour at Twickenham. Williams helped him up and had a chat, as Liam Messam placed an All Blacks beanie on his head. Williams then placed the medal around his neck.“I was walking around doing a lap of honour with the boys and a young fella came running out and he got smoked by the security guard, like full on tackled him. I felt sorry for the little fella,” said Williams.“I know he’ll appreciate it and when he gets older he’ll be telling his kids – that’s more special than it just hanging on a wall. Better for it to be hanging around his neck than mine. I’m sure he’ll remember it for a while.”The impromptu act of goodwill has gone a long way, as the video footage went viral, receving millions of views across youtube and social networks.Alma Rugby from Brazil captured the momentWilliams later posted a photo on his instagram page, accompanied by the words: “Only takes one thing to change someone’s life. Enjoy it Charlie bro.”At last night’s World Rugby Awards, the gesture was repaid as Williams was given another medal, with master of ceremonies Alex Payne saying: “World Rugby would like every winner to go home with a medal and they have found the final one.”Williams received a standing ovation as he went up to collect the medal.Sonny Bill Williams receiving a second Rugby World Cup winners…Sonny Bill Williams receiving a second Rugby World Cup winners’ medal after he graciously gave away his to a young fan after the final #WorldRugbyAwardsPosted by Rugby World Cup on Sunday, November 1, 2015In an interview from the awards last night, Sonny Bill spoke of how proud he is to be a Kiwi, and when asked about what he did for the young fan (around 0:40 into the below video), he said “I just wanted to put a smile on his face.”A week ago the cross code star made headlines after he was seen consoling dejected Springbok centre Jesse Kriel following the tense semi final clash. The photos also went viral as fans appreciated the gesture, which was obviously spot on when it comes to rugby’s core values. Here is an updated, HD version of the medal incidentADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , Rugby World Cup , See it to Believe it Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

Ses Menorquines consists of a community of four summer villas overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from the north coast of Menorca island, Spain. Each house is slightly rotated in a fanned out setting in order to maximize the sea views and create privacy between them. The inspiration for the dwellings’ facades was taken from traditional vernacular architecture, with wholly whitewashed walls and pitch roofs. However, an interesting contrast is created by introducing contemporary elements such as large, glazed openings, sharp edges or flush, integrated furniture.Save this picture!© NOMO STUDIOA well-organized and compact layout allows the fitting of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 111sqm. One of the main appeals of the houses, are its additional 46sqm of outdoor space, protected on its sides by perforated walls and covered by a double-height inclined roof. This day area is oriented towards the sea views and has a good overview of the common swimming pool in the plot’s centre. To create a soft breeze through the porch and allow filtered natural light into this space, the gable walls of the villas were built up with a chess pattern that also guarantees the necessary privacy towards the neighbouring houses.Save this picture!© NOMO STUDIOThe ground floor includes a guest bedroom, a small bathroom, a laundry room and an open kitchen together with the living and dining room. Three large sliding glazed doors connect this open space with the covered terrace, altogether with stunning views over the sea. The windows on the ground floor go all the way down to the floor, with embedded rails, in order enhance the indoor-outdoor connection and increase the amount of natural light.Save this picture!© NOMO STUDIOSave this picture!Plan – 1st floorSave this picture!© NOMO STUDIOThe stair leading up to the first floor has been cladded in Indian green marble, the same that can be found in the kitchen and bathrooms’ countertops. On the first floor, the master bedroom has its own private terrace and a bathroom en suite. The over 3m ceiling height helps visually enlarge the two other smaller bedrooms and create a feeling of spaciousness. For the pavements, a light grey tile of 60x15cm was manually laid-out on a fishbone pattern with framed edges, continuously covering all the indoor and outdoor spaces. The elaborated floor pattern and the high-end green natural stone introduce an accent to the otherwise very neutral white finishings.Save this picture!© NOMO STUDIOWhen leaving the house after the holiday season, all ground floor windows can be securely closed with perforated, white-coated aluminium shutters. During the summer, these blinds also serve as a sun protection and privacy elements. Placing these frameless light metallic screens flush to the outer facade creates an unusual contrast with the heavy bearing wall structure.Save this picture!© NOMO STUDIOProject gallerySee allShow lessCities on the Move: What the Experts Predict for the Future of Urban MobilityArticlesSamna Restaurant / YOD GroupSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Coves Noves, 07740 Es Mercadal, Illes Balears, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_img Facebook Fox News Media Moves to Dismiss Smartmatic Lawsuit NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– FOX News Media today filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit by electronic voting company Smartmatic, stating that the complaint seeks to “stifle debate and chill vital First Amendment activities.” Kirkland & Ellis Partner Paul Clement filed the motion on behalf of FOX News Media and commented, “This suit strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Smartmatic’s theory is fundamentally incompatible with the reality of the modern news network and deeply rooted principles of free speech law.” FOX News Media added, “FOX News has moved to dismiss the Smartmatic lawsuit because it is meritless. If the First Amendment means anything, it means that Fox cannot be held liable for fairly reporting and commenting on competing allegations in a hotly contested and actively litigated election. We are proud of our election coverage which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism.” The motion characterizes “two separate and independent reasons,” arguing for dismissal and stating that “Smartmatic’s complaint must be dismissed, and its efforts to reject our deeply rooted free-press protections must be firmly rejected.” Leading with the fact that “Smartmatic has not identified any statement by FOX itself that could be actionable as defamation,” the filing also demonstrates that Smartmatic “ fails to allege that FOX published the challenged statements with actual malice.” As delineated in the motion, “Smartmatic’s effort to saddle FOX with billions of dollars of liability just for covering all sides of a vigorous debate of profound national importance must be dismissed.” Furthermore, the filing explains, “When a sitting President and his surrogates claim that an election was rigged, the public has a right to know what they are claiming, full stop. When a sitting President and his surrogates bring lawsuits challenging the results of an election, the public has a right to know the substance of their claims and what evidence backs them up, full stop. In that context, interviewing the President’s lawyers is fully protected First Amendment activity, whether those lawyers can substantiate their claims or not. Here, FOX was providing precisely that kind of newsworthy information — typically allowing the President’s surrogates to explain their allegations and evidence themselves.” Additionally, the filing demonstrates that FOX News Media covered all aspects of the developing news, stating, “As the story unfolded, and Smartmatic denied many of those allegations, FOX covered that as well, including by reporting Smartmatic’s denials, offering Smartmatic the opportunity to tell its side, and soliciting the views of disinterested third parties on the veracity of the allegations against Smartmatic, sometimes in a debate-like format. In short, FOX did exactly what the First Amendment protects: It ensured that the public had access to newsmakers and unquestionably newsworthy information that would help foster “uninhibited, robust, and wide-open” debate on rapidly developing events of unparalleled importance.” In conclusion, the motion argues that, “The logic of Smartmatic’s position would be that the press must censor all discussion of even the most newsworthy of public controversies to escape imputation of actual malice, even in the context of statements by objectively newsworthy third parties during live television interviews,” which is a blatant affront to the First Amendment. FOX News Media operates the FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX News Audio, FOX News Books, the direct-to-consumer digital streaming services FOX Nation and FOX News International, and the newly announced platform FOX Weather. Currently the number one network in all of cable, FNC has also been the most watched television news channel for 19 consecutive years, while FBN currently ranks among the top business channels on cable.

first_imgkali9/iStockBy ELLA TORRES, ABC NEWS(PALMDALE, Calif.) — The death of a 24-year-old Black man who was found hanging from a tree was confirmed to be a suicide, authorities said Thursday at a press conference.Los Angeles Sheriff’s Commander Chris Marks said that there were no signs of a struggle or defensive wounds upon discovering Robert Fuller’s body on June 10 in a park near City Hall in Palmdale, California.Marks also said that the rope and fabric tied to the tree branches were only accessible from a position in the tree, which he said suggested meant that Fuller had not been hoisted.There were also no signs that Fuller attempted to remove the ligature from his neck, according to Marks.Marks outlined other instances of prior mental health struggles, including in 2017 when a hospital in Arizona diagnosed him with having auditory hallucinations and claimed that he said he wanted to put a gun to his head.Fuller also allegedly tried to set himself on fire in February 2020, according to Marks, and the incident was investigated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.A year before that, Marks said Fuller admitted himself to a California hospital, saying he heard voices telling him to kill himself.Fuller’s family has previously said they are seeking an independent investigation and autopsy. The family was “enraged” that “the Sheriff’s Department immediately declared his death a suicide,” family attorney Jamon R. Hicks said in a statement in June.“For African-Americans in America, hanging from a tree is a lynching. Why was this cavalierly dismissed as a suicide and not investigated as a murder?” Hicks said. “We want complete transparency. To that end, the family should choose the pathologist to conduct the independent autopsy.”Fuller’s death came amid widespread protests against police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Fuller was also the second Black man found hanged in Southern California in a short period of time. Malcolm Harsch, a 38-year-old homeless man, was found in a tree on May 31 in Victorville, a desert city in San Bernardino County east of Palmdale.Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva expressed his condolences to the Fuller family and urged officials to prioritize funding for mental health.“I want to call on the Board of Supervisors to properly fund mental health treatment centers, psychiatric beds at the facility because they’re always running overcrowded, insufficient. … We do not have the resources to provide care to all the ones who desperately need it,” Villanueva said.If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_img Email Address* Tags Full Name* Clockwise from left: New York Rep. Nydia Velázquez, Ritchie Torres, Jerrold Nadler, Hakeem Jeffries and Tom Suozzi (Getty)New York Democrats are turning up the heat on their party to repeal the cap on state and local tax deductions.Most of the state’s House delegation threatened to oppose future tax legislation unless Congress gets rid of the so-called SALT provision enacted in 2017, the Times Union reported. That would appear to include President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.“This issue is so critical to our state and our constituents that we will reserve the right to oppose any tax legislation that does not include a full repeal of the SALT limitation,” New York House Democrats wrote to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday. Kathleen Rice of Long Island and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of the Bronx were the only names missing.ADVERTISEMENTThe letter came after New York Rep. Tom Suozzi and New Jersey Reps. Josh Gottheimer, Mikie Sherrill and Bill Pascrell, all Democrats, vowed that they would not vote for Biden’s infrastructure plan unless the cap were repealed.Republicans in late 2017 capped the amount taxpayers can deduct on their federal returns at $10,000. The law raised federal taxes primarily on high earners in states with steep income and property taxes, such as New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and California.Read moreSALT shakeup: Democrats pressure Biden to repeal tax cap Is the tax overhaul law impacting real estate? The suburban S.A.L.T. shakeout Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink Ocasio-Cortez opposes repeal of the SALT deduction cap because it would largely help the well off.A 2020 study by the Brookings Institution showed 57 percent of a repeal’s benefits would go to the highest-earning 1 percent of households. A quarter of the savings would go to the top 0.1 percent, who would save about $145,000 per year.A repeal would reduce tax revenue, costing the federal government $673 billion over the next decade, the Tax Foundation estimated, according to the Times Union.That exceeds what Biden’s infrastructure plan would spend on transportation projects, including repairs for roads and bridges. He has proposed increasing corporate taxes to pay for the $2 trillion plan.Democrats have a thin majority in the House and, in the likely case that few Republicans vote with them, cannot pass a bill without the New York delegation’s support. That gives the SALT deduction cap opponents, including Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-New York, great leverage. But they would also be under tremendous pressure to approve a signature bill by Biden even if the cap remained.[TU] — Cordilia JamesContact Cordilia James charles schumerJoe BidenPoliticstaxeslast_img read more

In addition, the overall naval training system for the UAE Navy is being designed for networking and interoperability to enable distributed multi-platform and joint mission training.Under the contract, VSTEP will be delivering its NAUTIS 3 simulation platform. Some of the bridge simulators will be reconfigurable for the different vessels of the UAE Navy to allow for vessel-specific training capabilities. All simulators can be used individually, or in combination for joint mission exercises.“This is a major strategic win for VSTEP and clearly demonstrates our capabilities to provide adaptive and fully integrated simulators in the Defence industry,” said Pjotr van Schothorst, VSTEP’s co-founder and CEO. “CAE’s choice of VSTEP as their provider of ship bridge simulators for the UAE Naval Training Centre proves that our new simulation platform NAUTIS 3, which we are about to introduce on the market, has the quality and flexibility needed for the training needs of the most demanding clients.”center_img Share this article View post tag: UAE Navy Authoritieslast_img read more
