Society speaks out on threat to judicial independence in Poland

Society speaks out on threat to judicial independence in Poland

first_imgThe Law Society has added its voice to growing international concern over threats to judicial independence in Poland. It said the country’s global reputation will be at risk if it ploughs ahead with a law that will weaken the independence of its Supreme Court and potentially politicise the country’s judiciary.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# Legislation due to come into force today empowers Poland’s president to determine how the Supreme Court is constituted. The legislation will also lead to almost 40% of sitting Supreme Court judges being dismissed when the retirement age is lowered from 70 to 65.’Poland’s judicial system must remain independent of the government’s legislative and executive branches,’ said Law Society president Joe Egan. ‘Any erosion of the independence and impartiality of the judiciary undermines the rule of law and opens the way for abuse of power. Measures that politicise Poland’s courts must be halted immediately.’In December last year the European Commission took the unprecedented step of beginning action against Poland under Article 7 the Treaty of the EU Treaty because of threats to the rule of law. While diplomatic efforts to remedy the situation continue at the European parliament, the European Court of Justice may also have the power to intervene.Egan added: ‘An independent legal profession and a government accountable to the people are fundamental elements of a nation rooted in the rule of law. These pillars are intrinsic to the prosperity of a country and to its international standing.’last_img read more

Toddy & Patrick too good at Navy

Toddy & Patrick too good at Navy

first_imgPSC Golf from The Growling SwanMonday, Feb. 10, Plutaluang E & S – StablefordWith the colder weather well and truly behind us it was shaping up to be a hot one as we met at The Growling Swan in readiness for our departure to Plutaluang for our first outing of the week.   A late inclusion saw a field of 20 on the starting sheet and we headed off South down Sukhumvit in 2 mini vans 5 minutes ahead of schedule at 8.25 am, arriving at the golf course 45 minutes later.  It was reasonably busy as it usually is on a Monday and we were allocated the East & South nines, starting on E1 and managed to get our first group away 17 minutes after our scheduled 9.28 am tee time.Martin Todd, JC Lhoste & Patrick Poussier. With no groups immediately in front of us we were able to set a fairly good pace as we enjoyed the excellent condition of the course with the greens being very well prepared & maintained and considerably quicker than we have been used to in the past on these 2 nines.  The weather did indeed turn out to be hot so plenty of water was consumed and as we slowed down somewhat on the back nine our round turned out to be a little slow taking four hours & forty minutes.The first nine was probably quicker with less time spent on the greens (four birdies for Martin Todd) but he did let us down on the second nine with just the one birdie.  It was a very enjoyable round, particularly watching Toddy exercise his skills while the other three of us enjoyed the walk.It was of course Martin “Toddy” Todd who finished on top in Division A with 38 points although just 1 point ahead of Mike Allidi whose 74 gross got him into second place.  With 2 golfers on 32 points a count back was required to determine third spot and it was Colm Mullen (17 point back nine) who got the honours from Ebrahim (16 point back nine).It was extremely tight in B Division with four golfers on that very popular score of 32 points and the count back saw Patrick Poussier (18 point back nine) finish first from Nolan “No-one” Wise (16 point back nine) in second place and Alan “Colonel” Sanders (15 point back nine) finished third.  The one to miss out was Max “Corsets” Bracegirdle (14 point back nine).Division A (0-20)1st Martin Todd (8) 38pts2nd Mike Allidi (3) 37pts3rd Colm Mullen (18) 32ptsDivision B (17+)1st Patrick Poussier (23) 32pts2nd Nolan Wise (36) 32pts3rd Alan Sanders (26) 32ptsNear Pins:  E2 – Martin Todd, E5 – Colm Mullen, S4 – Duangjai TusagadLong Putts:  E9 – Ebrahim, S9 – Max BracegirdleThursday, Feb. 13, Pleasant Valley – 2 Person Scramble/StrokeIt was time for our once a month novelty competition and this time it was Ambrose Pairs (2 person Scramble) with a random draw, pairing a low handicapper with a high one with the names being drawn out of a hat.  After several late withdrawals and additions we luckily ended up with an ideal field of 28 (7 groups of four) and Pleasant Valley was the venue for the event.As all were on time we left the GS 5 minutes early at 8.25 am and after a very good run exiting Pattaya and up number 7 we arrived at the course 40 minutes later to find a fair bit of activity there.  We did the draw and after a few moans & groans (good natured of course) after discovering partners we headed to the first tee where there were a few groups ahead of us but we managed to send our first group away 5 minutes later than our scheduled 10.00 am time.Masa Tojo & Rita Zoebelli.The weather was quite hot with plenty of crowd cover and a bit of wind (not Peter Grey this time) and the golf course was in great shape with the fairways lush and the greens, although a touch slow were very well kept.The views on this course are spectacular and to be honest when some people speak negatively about this course I just shake my head!  It is terrific value for money and that was the opinion of most on the day.  The going was quite slow at first but did quicken up somewhat and even with a 10 minute drink stop after the 15th green we managed to complete the round in four hours & twenty minutes.  Everyone enjoyed the format and there were some good results with the winning pair having an outstanding round.With an excellent score of net 60.75 it was Rita Zoebelli and Masa Tojo who finished on top, with Colm Mullen & Russell Calcutt in second place on net 62.5.  In third spot came Martin “Toddy” Todd & Max “Corsets” Bracegirdle with net 63.75 and Alain “Inspector Clouseau” Taddei and Gerd Riedler finished in fourth place on net 64.25.  Roy “Plums” Dayton & Steve Reeves completed the podium with a net 64.5, finishing in fifth place.1st Rita Zoebelli (25) & Masa Tojo (12) net 60.752nd Colm Mullen (18) & Russell Calcutt (36) net 62.53rd Martin Todd (8) & Max Bracegirdle (25) net 63.754th Alain Taddei (19) & Gerd Riedler (8) net 64.255th Roy Dayton (23) & Steve Reeves (11) net 64.5Near Pins:  5th – J C Lhoste, 8th – Don Richardson, 13th – Don Richardson, 17th – Max BracegirdleLong Putts:  9th – Steve Reeves, 18th – Gus WalkerNote:  Growling Swan Golf welcomes golfers of any persuasion – low & high handicappers alike, female golfers and beginners.  We generally play Mondays & Thursdays, meeting at The Growling Swan in Soi Chaiyapoon at 8.00 am with transport departing at 8.30 am.  For bookings or more information please contact Peter on 0806 351 386 or email to petermalcolmblackburn @gmail.com.We also play bowls out of the Growling Swan every Wednesday and Sunday.  All are welcome and for anyone that is interested the transport leaves The Growling Swan at 10.00am on each of those mornings.  For more information please contact Paul Rennison on 0843 454 005.last_img read more

24 Marathons, 24 Days charity challenge is coming to Galway

24 Marathons, 24 Days charity challenge is coming to Galway

first_imgAn epic charity challenge being kicked off in Donegal Town by legendary Ireland soccer goalkeeper, Packie Bonner on Thursday (22nd June) is coming to Galway on Saturday (24th June). No Reproduction Fee24 Marathon, 24 DaysThree time Olympian, World 60m Hurdles Champion, and now food and fitness expert, Derval O’Rourke officially launched ‘24 Marathons, 24 Days’ in the UCC Sports Mardyke Sports arena in her native Cork at noon on Friday (20th January).Derval is excited to lend her support to Dingle based gym owner, Shane Finn who is running 24 marathons in 24 days this summer to raise €100,000 for people in Ireland who live with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus.And she hopes that lots of people will join her in supporting Shane on this amazing journey.Derval is pictured here at the launch with marathon man, WK Fitness owner Shane Finn and SBHI Cork/Kerry Family Support worker, Deirdre Gallagher.You can find out more information about this Kerry man’s incredible undertaking, and donate on www.24marathons24days.ie.Pic John Sheehan On Day 3, Saturday (24th June) Shane’s marathon route will start from McHale’s Farm Machinery, Kilmaine Village, Co. Mayo and finish up at the Connacht Rugby Grounds in Galway City.Day 4’s (Sunday, 25th June) marathon route is from Kilconierin Church, Hollywell, Athenry to Tesco, Ballinasloe and on Monday, 26th June (Day 5), Shane will run from outside the Shearwater Hotel in Ballinasloe to Roscommon Town.Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI) is the national organisation which provides life-enhancing services and supports for people with the conditions, and their families.Around 40 babies are born with Spina Bifida each year in Ireland – which is one of the highest incidence rates in the world – and 1 in 1,000 live births are affected by Hydrocephalus.SBHI supports more than 2,000 people who know Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus to be a reality in their lives. We also work to increase awareness about Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, as well as the essential funds which ensure that our unique services can be sustained.We are fortunate to have some incredible people who are willing to get involved in fundraising on our behalf. Shane Finn, who owns West Kerry Fitness in Dingle, raised €36,000 for SBHI in 2014 by completing 12 marathons in 12 days.In June and July, he intends to complete 24 marathons in 24 days and he has set a fundraising target of €100,000.What is Shane’s motivation? Shane’s 35-year-old cousin, Mary Evans, lives in Celbridge, Co. Kildare, and like thousands of other people in Ireland has Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.Shane believes that he can complete the 24 marathons in 24 consecutive days, starting in Donegal on 22nd June and finishing in his native Dingle on 15th July. Everyone at SBHI believes that he will make this ambitious dream a reality.However, to make a fundraising event of this size a success requires investment. Our aim is to recruit as much sponsorship as possible.While Shane is the ‘main man’ in 24 Marathons, 24 Days, getting involved in this epic challenge is open to everyone through the ‘What’sYour24?’ initiative.To date, SBHI members, volunteers and members of the public from all over the country have been coming up with great ideas to raise sponsorship from 24 hour sponsored silences and giving up coffee for 24 days to 24 book readathons and eating 24 donuts in 2.4 minutes.You can find out more information about Shane’s incredible undertaking and track his progress each day in real time on: www.24marathons24days.ieMembers of the public can also donate by texting GIVE to 50300.Texts cost €4.

Helpline: 0766805278Spina Bifida FactsWith around 40 babies born with Spina Bifida each year in Ireland, we have one of the highest incidence rates in the world.Spina Bifida is the most common neural tube defect (NTD) which causes incomplete development of the spinal cord.Translated, ‘Spina Bifida’ literally means ‘split spine’.Spina Bifida commonly causes significant mobility issues, continence problems, pressure sores, and social challenges of isolation and loneliness.Hydrocephalus Facts1 in 1,000 pregnancies are affected by Hydrocephalus each year.Hydrocephalus can also develop later in life as a result of head impact injuries.Hydrocephalus is a condition where too much cerebrospinal fluid builds pressure in the brain, this is usually relieved by a shunt (a rubber tube) which is fitted internally to drain the fluid away into the stomach, or sometime the heart.Hydrocephalus is often referred to as a hidden disability due to the lack of obvious physical signs in most cases.Common issues arising from Hydrocephalus include: intellectual difficulties, behavioural problems, memory issues, and challenges to cognitive processing.Spina Bifida and HydrocephalusSpina Bifida and Hydrocephalus are life-long conditions and although there is no ‘cure’, there are many ways in which those living with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus are enabled to overcome challenges.It is common for both conditions to be experienced at the same time from birth. In Ireland 64% of those living with Spina Bifida also have Hydrocephalus.About SBHISpina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI) is a national organisation supporting more than 2,000 people who know Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus to be a reality in their lives.SBHI works to increase awareness about Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, as well as the essential funds which ensure that our unique service is sustained.We deliver unique services through our team of: Family Support Workers, a Youth and Respite Team, our Education Training work, and through our Resource Centre in Clonshaugh.

IPL 2012 Live: DC vs KXIP cricket scores and commentary

first_imgIt has been a clinical performance by Kings XI Punjab against Deccan Chargers at the at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. Score | Photos With this win, KXIP move into the top 4 of the points table. Undoubtedly the two wickets that Hussey took was the turning point of the game. In that over, he dismissed the well set Harris and the in form White. Deccan never recovered from those blows and could manage only 145. A big win for Punjab, that will help their net run rate. Things are hotting up now, 7 teams in the fray for the 4 play off spots. IPL 2012 – DC vs KXIP Live: KXIP win by 25 runsPreity zinta tweets: Yeah! Finally the Red Lions roared in Hyderabad ! Phew !!!

Last game was disappointing and we needed to come back. We knew that if we bowled and fielded well, we could defend it. We need to get a few more wins at home. We have shown good character while winning away from home. Hopefully Gilly gets back soon. The points table is really tight now. We need to play well at the business end of the IPL now.19.6 overs: Azhar Mahmood to Amit Mishra, 1 run, short of length delivery on middle, Amit Mishra pulls it to short midwicket for a single.

Praveen Kumar to Jhunjunwala, out Jhunjunwala Run Out!! Full toss on middle, Jhunjunwala came down the track and played it to mid off. It should have been an easy single, but he ambled in towards the non striker end. An alert Marsh sent in a direct hit and Jhunjunwala was found napping. Jhunjunwala run out (Shaun Marsh) 19(20) [6s-1] (130/8 in 17.2 overs)Ashish Reddy, right handed bat, comes to the crease 11:05 pm | 16.3 overs: WICKET! Chawla to Akshath Reddy, out Stumped!!

Slowly DC are edging towards their doom! Praveen Kumar to Sangakkara, out Caught by Saini!! Breathtaking catch by Saini. Punjab have struck thrice in the space of 8 balls! This was a beauty from Praveen Kumar, pitched on middle, swung away and got the outside edge, Saini dived to his left to take a stunning one hander. Sangakkara c Saini b Praveen Kumar 4(6) (DC 74/5 in 11.2 overs)Akshath Reddy, right handed bat, comes to the crease 10:41 pm | 10.4 overs: WICKET! Another one takes bow! David Hussey to Cameron White, out Caught by Shaun Marsh!! Another big wicket for Hussey, he has taken out two stalwarts of this batting order.

David Hussey to Dan Harris, out Caught by Awana!! Hussey strikes first ball! Flat and outside off, Dan Harris looked to drive, got a thick outside edge which lobs up to Awana at point. Easy catch for him, he makes no mistake. The skipper has something to say to his fellow Australian. This is what pressure can do to you, the last over from Mahmood went only for 2. Dan Harris c Awana b David Hussey 30(29) [4s-2 6s-1] (DC 70/3 in 10.1 overs)Cameron White, right handed bat, comes to the crease 10:13 pm | 4.6 overs: WICKET! Awana gets rid of Parthiv.

Powar will open the attackDECCAN CHARGERS: Target – 171 in 20 oversKINGS XI PUNJAB: 170/5 in 20 overs (Mandeep Singh 75)170 is a big total and Punjab will be delighted with their effort. Mandeep was outstanding as he stroked a wonderful FIFTY. All the other batsmen played around him and Miller struck some lusty blows towards the end. The Deccan bowlers bowled too short and were inconsistent. The batsmen need to step up and bat really well if Deccan are to achieve victory. Join us in a bit for the Punjab innings. Theron: It is a big job to fill Steyn’s place. I am happy with the my effort. The wicket is slow. 160 is a par score but it is a good wicket if the batsmen adjust well. 9:36 pm | 19.6 overs: Ashish Reddy to David Miller, 1 run, a full toss on middle, Miller thumps it to long on, the ball hit the bat high on the splice and so he does not time it well. (KXIP put 170/5 in 20 overs) 18.6 overs: DROPPED! Theron to David Miller, 1 run, catch dropped by White, full ball just outside off, Miller thrashes it hard to long off, White moves to his left and tries to take the catch on the move, but he spills the chance and they take only a single, that was really travelling but White should have taken it.Siddharth Chitnis, right handed bat, comes to the crease 9:23 pm | 16.6 overs: WICKET! Azhar scores a quick 14. Theron to Azhar Mahmood, out Azhar Mahmood Run Out!! Oh dear, total confusion and Mahmood has to depart. Shortish ball outside off, Mahmood looks to force it through cover and he gets an outside edge that rolls to backward point, Mahmood is ball watching as Miller sets off for a quick single, the batsmen stop and stutter, Mahmood belatedly sets off for the single, but Ashish fires the throw to Theron who breaks the stumps and catches Mahmood short. Azhar Mahmood run out (Ashish Reddy / Theron) 14(9) [4s-2] (KXIP 138/5 in 17 overs)advertisementDavid Miller, left handed bat, comes to the crease 9:13 pm | 15.3 overs: WICKET! Finally Mandeep falls after a quick and solid 75. Ashish Reddy to Mandeep Singh, out Bowled!! Mandeep’s superb innings comes to an end. Another back of the hand slower delivery from Ashish, he lands it on a full length and it breaks back in as Mandeep bends down, he attempts to slog across the line but misses it and the ball clips the off stump. Mandeep Singh b Ashish Reddy 75(48) [4s-8 6s-3] (KXIP 130/4 in 15.3 overs)Azhar Mahmood, right handed bat, comes to the crease 8:55 pm | 11.6 overs: WICKET! Captain Hussey departs! Pratap Singh to David Hussey, out Caught by Dan Harris!! Something to cheer for Veer Pratap Singh. Full ball just outside off, Hussey looks to loft it over long off but ends up miscuing it, he fails to generate the power and Harris settles underneath it easily. David Hussey c Dan Harris b Pratap Singh 16(16) [4s-1 6s-1] (KXIP 97/3 in 11.6 overs)8:50 pm | 10.6 overs: Dan Harris to Mandeep Singh, FOUR, awesome way to get to his FIFTY, length ball outside off, Mandeep backs away a touch and clubs it inside out over extra cover for a boundaryDavid Hussey, right handed bat, comes to the crease 8:32 pm | 7.4 overs: WICKET! Ashish Reddy to Saini, out Lbw!! The back of the hand slower delivery does the trick for Ashish, he lands this delivery on a good length and it cuts back in, Saini goes on the backfoot and looks to work it to mid wicket, he misses it and gets hit on the pads, Ashish appeals and umpire Dharmasena gives it out, it looked to be sliding down the leg side at first glance, but we need a replay to confirm it. Saini lbw b Ashish Reddy 2(4) (KXIP 58/2 in 7.4 overs)Nitin Saini, right handed bat, comes to the crease 8:28 pm | 6.5 overs: WICKET! Dhawan to Shaun Marsh, out Bowled!! Dhawan has broken a dangerous stand. Flatter and full delivery on the middle and leg stump, Marsh skips down the track and looks to whip it through mid wicket, the ball hits his pad and then goes back onto the stumps, that has gotten the crowd going at Uppal. Shaun Marsh b Dhawan 22(20) [4s-3] (KXIP 58/1 in 7.2 overs)8:23 pm | 5.3 overs: Theron to Shaun Marsh, FOUR, awesome batting this, full ball just outside off, Marsh blasts it past Theron and it screams away to the long on fence, it also brings up the FIFTY partnership8:04 pm | 1 over: KXIP are 5/0 at the stage. Mandeep Singh is batting on 4 and Shaun Marsh on 1. An okay start to their innings, but KXIP will look to accelerate.8:00 pm | Mandeep Singh and Shaun Marsh are at the crease. Mandeep Singh is on strike. Jhunjunwala will open the attack Teams  Deccan Chargers (Playing XI): Daniel Harris, Shikhar Dhawan, Cameron White, Kumar Sangakkara(c), Parthiv Patel(w), Abhishek Jhunjunwala, Ashish Reddy, Akshath Reddy, Amit Mishra, Juan Theron, Veer Pratap Singh Kings XI Punjab (Playing XI): Shaun Marsh, Mandeep Singh, Nitin Saini(w), David Hussey(c), David Miller, Azhar Mahmood, Siddharth Chitnis, Piyush Chawla, Ramesh Powar, Praveen Kumar, Parvinder AwanaDavid Hussey: I am enjoying the role as a captain. Gilly was desparate to play tonight but the physio ruled him out. He should play the next fixture. We have got to do the hard yards and we need to win the next four. We would have batted first anyway. David Miller comes in for Ryan Harris, Sid Chitnis comes in and so does Ramesh Powar. Sangakkara: Ya we are looking to turn things around and start winnings. We have played well but have failed to deliver at the crunch situations. I think we were in a position to be about seven places up but we haven’t fielded well enough. We have batted and bowled well but in tough situations the fielding matters and we have let ourselves down there. The deck looks like it will stay the same throughout. The par score is 150-160 so anything below that will be great. We just need to trust what we are doing. Rusty Theron comes in. 7:30 pm | TOSS – Deccan Chargers have won the toss and elected to fieldlast_img read more

Pipeline protesters including Green leader should face criminal charges judge

first_imgAffleck says the trials, which should be expedited, aren’t determining the merit of the pipeline project but focus solely on whether the court order was breached.A spokesman for the B.C. Prosecution Service said it had a representative in court to address any proceedings and it would not have any further comment because the case is before the court.The judge released the group on a promise to appear in court next week.May declined to comment after the hearing. VANCOUVER, B.C. –  A B.C. Supreme Court judge says the Crown should consider laying criminal contempt of court charges against Green party Leader Elizabeth May and dozens of other demonstrators alleged to have violated a pipeline court injunction.May, New Democrat MP Kennedy Stewart, and others arrested last month were originally charged with civil contempt of court over allegations that they protested within five metres of two Trans Mountain sites in Burnaby, B.C.But Justice Kenneth Affleck says there’s no doubt in his mind that the alleged actions of the protesters amount to criminal contempt and the matter should be taken over by B.C.’s attorney general.last_img read more
