While the party goes on in Hong Kong, World Rugby are preparing to see out changes to the HSBC Sevens World Series.Next season the Series will shift from nine host venues to ten, but while some of the venues have been announced – Vancouver is in, Scotland is out, for example – the powers that be will meet up once the Hong Kong dust has settled and hash out where else the 2015-16 Sevens will be, with World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper saying: “You go through a rigorous tender process to choose the new cities – some of them have been released and more are to be released – hopefully there will be an announcement at the end of this Series.”Mark Egan, World Rugby’s head of competitions and performance told the press about the choices: “We’re still working through the final stages of confirming (next year’s Sevens World Series) schedule. We will have a meeting here with the host unions on Monday to work through some of the logistics and we hope to make an announcement of the full schedule and all the host unions in the coming weeks.”When Egan and Gosper were pressed on whether an expanded Series was a help or a hindrance, as sevens only has two guaranteed billing at the Olympics in 2016 and 2020 – after which, if the sport isn’t a hit it could conceivably be removed from the programme in 2024 – they reacted positively.Gosper spoke of sevens being judged on the Olympics alone. “It’s the foundation; the underpinning of the sport,” he said of the Series. “But I think it will depend on how we perform as a spectacle in Rio and there’s a number of criteria we have to fulfil, but we’re confident we’re going to do well in Rio, so it’s not really a risk.” Egan backed him up, saying: “Brett’s right: the Olympics needs to stand on its own and it’s a different environment to the World Series. We’re in an Olympic programme and we need to fit in with the Games – it’s a two week, multi-sport competition.“Rugby has a window, and a schedule we’re very pleased with. We think it’s going to be successful in terms of fitting into the Olympic programme, but we’ll be judged in Rio on how well the sport performs in terms of athletic performance, so we make sure we have the best possible facilities and venue for the athletes and we’ll be judged on attendances, how popular the sport is, broadcast-wise, and in a number of criteria measurements that we use in terms of global interest.“Yes, expanding the Series to ten tournaments and being in markets with potential growth for the sport is important to us as well, but I think the Series has shown over 15 or 16 years that it can stand on it’s own.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sprinting for new horizons: As of next season the Sevens World Series will be expanding They were unwilling to state whether Las Vegas would be keeping it’s place as a Series venue, but did insist that Vegas has been a very successful event within America, with Egan saying: “I think it’s found its place; it’s found its home.”Gosper and Egan also revealed that the list of potential hosts for the Sevens World Cup in 2018 is down to two competing unions, but World Rugby will not name them. A final announcement will come in May.

ChinaAsia – Pacific China’s Cyber Censorship Figures RSF_en China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison November 5, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Dissident Chen Daojun charged with “separatism” over an article about Tibet June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further Reporters Without Borders called for charges to be dropped against essayist Chen Daojun charged with “separatism” before the people’s court in Jintang, Sichuan province today for three articles posted online about rioting in Tibet in March 2008 and on the issue of civil liberties. “This charge is astounding. The authorities are unable to hide their obsession with control of news and censorship of publications critical of the Party,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. Chen Daojun, an ecology activist from the Sichuan capital Chengdu, was arrested on 9 May 2008, for “attempted subversion of state power” after he joined a protest rally condemning an environmental threat. He had written an article posted on 5 May on a foreign-based Chinese website YiBao (ChinaE) calling for a halt to the operation of a petrochemical plant around 40 kilometres from the city.A score of police officers arrested him at his home which they ransacked before taking him to the police station. The independent writers’ organisation Chinese PEN condemned it as “the latest manifestation of the paranoia of the authorities towards dissidents, ahead of the Olympic Games.”Read the offending articles (in Chinese) http://2newcenturynet.blogspot.com/2008/04/blog-post_7713.html: about events in Lhassa, Tibet in March 2008http://www.fireofliberty.org/article/7867.asp: about anti-western feeling in Chinahttp://www.fireofliberty.org/article/7114.asp: about the policy of the government of Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao and the consequences for the rural economy.

Asks Gujarat HC [Read Order] LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK23 May 2020 10:24 AMShare This – xThe HC expressed alarm over high mortality of COVID-19 patients at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital.The Gujarat High Court on Friday observed that the condition prevailing in Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, which is dedicated for COVID-19 treatment, was pathetic.”It is very distressing and painful to note that the condition prevailing, as on date, in the Civil Hospital, is pathetic”, observed a division bench comprising Justices J B Pardiwala and Ilesh J…Your free access to Live Law has expiredTo read the article, get a premium account.Your Subscription Supports Independent JournalismSubscription starts from ₹ 599+GST (For 6 Months)View PlansPremium account gives you:Unlimited access to Live Law Archives, Weekly/Monthly Digest, Exclusive Notifications, Comments.Reading experience of Ad Free Version, Petition Copies, Judgement/Order Copies.Subscribe NowAlready a subscriber?LoginThe Gujarat High Court on Friday observed that the condition prevailing in Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, which is dedicated for COVID-19 treatment, was pathetic.”It is very distressing and painful to note that the condition prevailing, as on date, in the Civil Hospital, is pathetic”, observed a division bench comprising Justices J B Pardiwala and Ilesh J Vora.The Court asked if the Gujarat Government was aware that the lack of adequate number of ventilators was the cause of high mortality of patients there.”Is the State Government aware of the hard fact that the patients at the Civil Hospital are dying because of lack of adequate number of ventilators? How does the State Government propose to tackle this problem of ventilators?”, the bench asked. The Court lambasted the health department and asked if the Health Minister was aware of the affairs of the Civil Hospital. “We wonder, how many times the Health Minster of the State has visited the Civil Hospital at Ahmedabad so as to keep a watch or take stock of what is going on at the Civil Hospital. Does the Health Minister of the State of Gujarat has any idea about the problems which the patients, doctors, nursing staff and other employees are facing as on date? How many times the Health Minister has interacted with the Medical Officers and other staff members in person so as to understand their difficulties and problems? We wonder whether the Chief Secretary of the Health Department has any idea as to what is going on in the Civil Hospital? We wonder how many times the Chief Secretary of the Health Department has paid visit to the Civil Hospital?”The Court noted that out of total 625 deaths in Gujarat, 570 deaths have been recorded in the Ahmedabad City till 20th May 2020. Out of total 570 deaths, 351 deaths have been recorded in Ahmedabad Civil Hospital. The Civil Hospital contributes to 62% of the total deaths. The mortality rate in the Civil Hospital, which is run by the Gujarat Health Department, is 13%. At the same time, the mortality rate of COVID-19 patients at SVP Hospital, run by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, is 7%, though patients brought to both hospitals are by and large from the same area. The Civil Hospital contributed to highest death in most of the week during the last eight weeks, the Court noted. “It is very distressing to note that most of the patients in the Civil Hospital are dying after four days or more of the treatment. This indicates complete lack of critical care”, the Court said.”We are very sorry to state that the Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad, as on date, appears to be in an extremely bad shape. Ordinarily, the citizens hailing from a poor strata of society are being treated at the Civil Hospital. This does not mean that human life is not to be protected. Human life is extremely precious and it should not be allowed to be lost at a place like the Civil Hospital at Ahmedabad”, the Court observed.The Court even went to the extent of calling it a “dungeon”.”As we said earlier that the Civil Hospital is meant to treat the patients. However, it appears that as on date, it is as good as dungeon. May be even worst than a dungeon. Unfortunately, the poor and helpless patients have no option”.The Court listed the following factors as matters of concern :There is inadequate patient care in the Civil Hospital. Senior doctors do not visit the wards and throw the entire burden on the Resident doctors.In such circumstances, the decisions regarding treatment of critical patients get delayed and neglected in the Civil Hospital.The Senior doctors are unable to control the ward boys and the sanitation staff and therefore, the health and hygiene is not being maintained in the Civil Hospital.There is no single command and control structure in the Civil hospital.There are 1200 Resident doctors in the Civil hospital as against 425 in the S.V.P. Hospital, yet the critical care is insufficient.The patients history record is maintained manually in the Civil hospital. Therefore, change in the shift of doctors leads to discontinuity in the patient care.The situation has not yet improved in the Civil Hospital past last two months, despite senior IAS officers like Pankaj Kumar, Milind Torwane and Jayanti Ravi have been appointed for the management of the Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad.The Court also recorded in the order the contents of an anonymous letter, stated to have been sent by a doctor of the hospital, which described the sorry state of affairs there.The Court said that ordinarily it would not take cognizance of such anonymous letters. “However, the situation is so grave that we should not ignore the contents of the letter”, it said.The letter stated that the medical personnel are not given proper PPE kits and N-95 masks, and highlighted that doctors working there are not tested for COVID-19 or even isolated.”If the condition remains same in CHA , doctors working here will be super spreaders of COVID19″, the letter had stated.The Court asked the State Government to take the issue seriously, and passed the following directions.The doctors, who are not performing in the Civil Hospital, should be immediately transferred to other districts. There are large number of senior and experienced Doctors who are ready and willing to render better services in the Civil Hospitals from the other districts.The Class III & IV Union should be dealt with strictly. The working conditions of the resident doctors should be improved.The accountability of senior officers who have failed to improve the health care in the Civil Hospital leading to massive loss of human lives should be fixed at the earliest.Number of ventilators and oxygen beds should be increased.Punitive action should be taken against the Ward Boys who just leave the patients unattended (One oxygen support patient recently died on a toilet seat and the same was noticed after an hour simply because no ward boy followed him up.)Lack of ventilatorsIt was brought to the Court’s notice that the problem of lack of adequate number of ventilators at the Civil Hospital can be taken care of by shifting the patients to : (1) Institute of Kidney Diseases (2) U.N. Mehta Institute of Cardiology. Taking note of that , the Court ordered that adequate steps shall now be taken to admit the patients at these two institutes so that in case of emergency.The Court also constituted a committe of the following members to look into the issues plauging the COVID-19 hospitals in AhmedabadDr. Ami Parikh, Head of the General Medicines, SVP Hospital, Ahmedabad.Dr. Advait Thakore, Head of the Emergency Medicines at the SVP Hospital, Ahmedabad.Dr. Bipin Amin, Professor (Medicines) at the Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad. “Maintenance and improvement of public health have to rank high as these are indispensable to the very physical existence of the community and on the betterment of these depends the building of the society which the Constitution makers envisaged..Without a guarantee of health and well being most of these(constitutional) freedoms cannot be exercised fully. To make other rights meaningful and effective right to a healthy life is the basis underlying the constitutional guarantees”, reminded the Court.Also Read : ‘We All Should Become Carpathia’, Gujarat HC Recalls Titanic Saviour Ship To Urge People To Help Each Other In Fight Against COVID-19 ‘Waive Migrants’ One Way Charges Or Levy Fare From State Govt’: Gujarat HC Directs Railways [Read Order] Click here to download the Order (Paragraphs 48 to 50/pages 90-104 relevant with respect to this report)Next Story

In 1999,The Trial Court had convicted Gurdip Singh under Sections 7 and Section 13(1)(d) read with Section 13(2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act and sentenced him to suffer rigorous imprisonment for four years and to pay a fine of Rs.1000/- . He preferred appeal before the Punjab and Haryana High Court. He did not challenge the conviction on merit and confined his argument on the point of quantum of sentence. Disposing of the appeal in 2010, the High Court took a lenient view and reduced the period of sentence to one year rigorous imprisonment. He filed an appeal before the Supreme Court thereafter which was disposed of last year. Allowing his application to restore the appeal last week, the court heard Senior Advocate K.T.S. Tulsi, who appeared on his behalf. Dismissing the appeal on merits, the bench comprising Justices Uday Umesh Lalit, Mohan M. Shantanagoudar and Vineet Saran, noted that the two prosecution witnesses completely established that the demand was made and that the money was found on the person of the accused. The bench then directed him to surrender within three weeks.
