TAGS: Highlight Men in black: New Zealand look unstoppable after bashing the Aussies last weekendHere’s a look at a couple of potential players for the Springboks, Wallabies and Pumas who can help their teams begin to bridge the seemingly growing gap with the All Blacks over the next year or two.Malcolm Marx, hooker, South AfricaMarx will have to oust Adriaan Strauss, the Springbok captain, in order to start, but there can be little doubt that he has been the form hooker in South Africa this season. Consistent at the set-piece and a nightmare for defences to try and contain in the loose, Marx has kicked on in 2016 and begun to realise the enormous potential which once made him one of the most highly-touted players at U20 level.Young Bok: Malcolm Marx could push for the No.2 shirtThere are shades of a young Bismarck du Plessis about Marx and it will take the bold call from Allister Coetzee of changing his captain to see Marx move up the pecking order, but it could be the making of this new-look Springbok side.Sergeal Petersen, wing, South AfricaThe Boks have found the answer on one of their wings with Ruan Combrinck taking his stellar Super Rugby form into the test arena but his partner on the other wing is yet to be found. JP Pietersen has moved to England and hasn’t been included in South Africa’s TRC squad, whilst Bryan Habana will be 36 at the next RWC, creating plenty of uncertainty at the position.Flyer: Sergeal Petersen could fill the boots of Bryan HabanaA veteran option like Lwazi Mvovo could do a job but in Petersen the Springboks could find all the pace that Habana gave them during his glory years, as well as a physical presence who is not afraid to put his body on the line in defence. Keeping veterans like Pietersen and Habana around as they blood Combrinck makes a lot of sense but once he is attuned to test rugby, turning to a talent like Petersen could see the Springboks take a large step forward.Allan Alaalatoa, prop, Australia LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Rugby Championship began last weekend, and in case there was any doubt, it cemented New Zealand’s position at the top of rugby’s international pantheon By Alex ShawThe All Blacks’ 42-8 demolition of the Wallabies in Sydney was exquisite, only further expanding the gulf in quality – both technically and mentally – between themselves and Australia, whilst the scrappy, albeit compelling, clash between South Africa and Argentina didn’t lend itself to either team looking as if they are able to maintain a sustained and serious challenge to New Zealand.It’s hard to remember a Rugby World Cup cycle beginning with such a stark differential in quality between the All Blacks and their southern hemisphere counterparts, particularly Australia and South Africa, and even three years out from the next RWC, it will be of great concern to New Zealand’s rivals. Alaalatoa may be the best scrummaging prospect to come out of Australia in the last few years, something which is made all the more impressive by his ability to cover both loosehead and tighthead. It’s a nice security blanket for the Wallabies to have but if they are to get the best out of him and ensure they remain competitive with the best scrummaging nations in the world, they will need to nail down his position sooner rather than later.Collision course: Allan Alaalatoa is one of the brightest front row talents in AustraliaHe has spent more time at loosehead but given that Australia already have Scott Sio and James Slipper at that position, their goal could well be to see him mature into their starting tighthead. Greg Holmes has left Australia for England, leaving Sekope Kepu as their only established player at the position.Reece Hodge, full-back, AustraliaIsrael Folau continues to push for more playing time at 13 and this potentially opens a door for Hodge at full-back, where the 21-year-old has excelled for the Melbourne Rebels this year.Utility: Reece Hodge possesses a likeliness to Adam Ashley-CooperAs with Alaalatoa, Hodge’s versatility makes him a valuable asset for the Wallabies and he is capable of also covering both wings and the outside centre berth, whilst his cannon-like boot would give Australia more range in goal-kicking situations, as well as a good tactical kicker for exiting their own 22. Hodge brings the same level of versatility that the Wallabies so relished in players like Adam Ashley-Cooper and Matt Giteau, and represents the future of Australian rugby, something which may need to be embraced swiftly.Facundo Isa, No. 8, ArgentinaIsa has been on the verge of cementing the Argentinean number eight jersey for a while now but the experience of Leonardo Senatore has prevented him from claiming it full-time. Now, with Senatore continuing to have discipline issues on the field and Isa rapidly developing into one of the world’s most exciting talents at the position, the time is ripe for him to make the position his own.Hungry Puma: Facundo Isa has his sights set on the No.8 shirtAlong with Santiago Cordero and Nicolás Sánchez, Isa can spearhead a young and exciting Pumas team which is capable of catching the All Blacks by the 2019 RWC and the experience he garners now, particularly in adversity, will make him all the better of a player further down the road.Marcos Kremer, lock, ArgentinaThe mountainous Kremer caught the eye at this year’s World Rugby U20 Championship, displaying all the athletic traits which the world’s top second rows have at their disposal. He followed that up by making his Super Rugby debut at the age of 18 and is now set to make the leap to test rugby. Kremer the crop: Marcos Kremer has been fast-tracked into the Pumas TRC squadHe has yet to debut for the Pumas but with Guido Petti being linked with a move to Toulon, something which would make him unavailable for international selection, Kremer could be the long-term partner to Tomás Lavanini in the Argentinean engine room. He has been fast-tracked into the Pumas’ TRC squad and it would not be surprising to see him make his test bow before the tournament concludes.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out how to download the digital edition here

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches Oct. 21 at Christ Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings listens. The church is a short walk from where the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council was meeting. Council members joined the Christ Church congregation for Eucharist. To Curry’s right is the Episcopal Church flag that flew over the Dakota Access Pipeline camp in North Dakota. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – New Brunswick, New Jersey] The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council asked Oct. 22 that law-enforcement officials “de-escalate military and police provocation in and near the campsites of peaceful protest and witness of the Dakota Access Pipeline project.”The request came in a resolution council passed as it wrapped up its three-day meeting here. A summary of resolutions council passed is here.Council’s resolution on the Dakota pipeline protest follows support by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry both in words and his presence with the protestors.The Rev. John Floberg, council member and supervising priest of the Episcopal churches on the North Dakota side of Standing Rock, told the council’s Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking for Mission Oct. 21 that the way the protest has been conducted has been “the most powerful experience I have had in my 25 years on Standing Rock.” And, yet, he said, he has been shaken by the racist responses that the protest has generated elsewhere in the state.The Episcopal Church’s ministry to the protestors opened what he called the “evangelical window of the gospel” between the Christian churches and Native Americans, “versus all the racism that has been reared up so ugly in North Dakota.”The Rev. John Floberg, council member from North Dakota, tells council’s Advocacy and Networking for Mission committee Oct. 21 that the Standing Rock Sioux Nation’s action against the Dakota Access Pipeline project is fraught with tension as well as filled with grace. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceFloberg told the committee that law enforcement’s response has been provocative and nearly amounts to martial law. He said he has seen officers shoulder their guns against prayerful groups of protesting adults and children.“It’s going to result in death” if the response is not stepped back, he said.Council’s resolution calls on President Barack Obama, the North Dakota governor, North Dakota’s U.S. senators and congressman, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Morton County Sheriff Department to make all necessary efforts possible to immediately de-escalate military and police provocation at the campsites. It praises the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council and its chairman and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and its council for their “prayerful and nonviolent presence.”The resolution commends the dioceses of North Dakota and South Dakota for their supportive leadership of the Sioux Nation’s response “to the corporate and governmental intrusion onto its sacred ground”; the ecumenical and interfaith partners that have joined the Episcopal Church’s ministry there; the Anglican Church of Canada; and the Episcopal dioceses that have offered moral and financial support.The resolution asks the Episcopal Church at all levels to prayerfully and financially support the planned winter encampment, which it says is the Sioux Nation’s “right for peaceful assembly and protest.”“This flag has flown so proudly,” in part because it was the only Christian church flag at the Dakota Access Pipeline camp in North Dakota, the Rev. John Floberg told Episcopal Church Canonical Archivist Mark Duffy, right, as he presented the flag to his care. “And we hate to give her up,” Floberg added, his voice faltering. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceOn the closing day of the meeting, Floberg presented to the Archives of the Episcopal Church housed in Austin, Texas, the now-tattered Episcopal Church flag that flew over the Oceti Skowin Camp in North Dakota for months. The flag, he said, was the only Christian church flag among the 300 flags of tribal nations that flew over the peaceful-protest encampment.On Oct. 21 the flag was part of Holy Eucharist at nearby historic Christ Church. Early in the service, the flag hung near a plaque commemorating the fifth president of the House of Deputies in the early 1800s and Christ Church Rector Abraham Beach; at the Great Thanksgiving, the flag was moved to the altar.One of the first organizational meetings of what is now known as the Episcopal Church took place at Christ Church. During a lunch-break news conference Oct. 22, current House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings linked those organizers to the Episcopalians now ministering on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.“They were really courageous, forward-looking, patriotic Anglicans trying to figure out how to be the church in a new land and in a new way,” she said, juxtaposing their efforts with church members in the Dakotas who are now “being Episcopalians in a brave and courageous new way” and who are “trying to figure out the exact same thing.”Curry said that the Episcopal flag with what is now an “old rugged cross” running down its middle had been in the Oceti Skowin Camp a “visible witness of what the cross is about – the out-stretched arms of Jesus reflecting the love of God and now reaching out at Standing Rock, reaching out for everyone to be treated as a child of God, reaching out for us to care for God’s creation.”And, Curry said, that “old, worn Episcopal flag” was the “defining image” of this council meeting and its work around racial reconciliation and evangelism.During the Oct. 22 news conference, Curry said the Episcopal Church took a stand on the Dakota Access Pipeline project, not because of the question of whether oil should be used as an energy source. “The issue here is that decisions were made which adversely affect Native communities – the Sioux reservation itself – when there may have been other alternative ways to accomplish the same thing.”The Episcopal Church flag that flew over the Dakota Access Pipeline camp in North Dakota lays folded for its journey to the Archives of the Episcopal Church in Austin, Texas, along with the Rev. John Floberg’s notes from his presentation of the flag. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe decisions involved whether the environmental assessment process was properly conducted and whether the United States respected the Sioux’s rights as a sovereign nation.Curry said he was glad that the federal justice and interior departments, as well as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, had called for construction to stand down 20 miles to the east and 20 miles to the west of the Missouri River so that those decisions could be reviewed. The pipeline is routed under the river, which is the reservation’s only source of water.The Episcopal Church’s entry into the protest is rooted in its 2009 repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery, Curry said. “Part of that action was to say we have got to find more just, equitable and fair ways of being in relationship with our brothers and sisters in the Native communities in our country,” the presiding bishop said.The pipeline protest, he said, is a way of calling people to step back and examine what is the “best, most sensible and most prudent way” to address energy needs of the nation. Curry emphasized that he went to the Standing Rock Nation at the request of Episcopalians involved in the action.“I really do believe this is not a partisan thing. This is not a liberal or conservative thing. This is not a Republican-Democratic thing. This is a human thing and it’s a Jesus thing to do what is right for all God’s children,” he said. “I am glad our government is trying to figure out what that is.”Executive Council met at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Previous ENS coverage of the New Brunswick meeting is here.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1). The council comprises 38 members – 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons, and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have seat and voice but no vote. – The Rev.

Print NewsHealthDutch authorities to investigate Limerick woman’s deathBy Bernie English – August 3, 2019 1598 Linkedin Twitter The late Adrienne CullenThe Dutch Health Inspectorate confirmed this week that it is to open a “further investigation” into the case of Adrienne Cullen, the 58-year-old Limerick woman who died of cervical cancer last New Year’s Eve as a result of medical negligence by a university hospital in the Netherlands.Ms Cullen, who got the highest ever award for pain and suffering in a Dutch medical negligence case after she developed terminal cancer because of a missing test diagnosis, wanted greater transparency in the testing regime and called at the time of her half a million euro award for gagging clauses to be outlawed.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In a letter to Ms Cullen’s widower, Peter Cluskey, the inspectorate said the decision had been taken at a meeting of its own experts on July 23 “to further investigate this case”.It said the investigation would begin immediately and continue through August and September.The decision has been taken on foot of the inspectorate’s assessment of an internal report by the hospital, UMC (University Medical Centre) Utrecht, in May, which showed that there had been not one but two opportunities to save Ms Cullen’s life by diagnosing what was then early-stage cancer.In one case, the results of a tissue sample were lost in 2011 before they reached her doctor. In the second case, a pathologist – and a pathology technician – misread a tissue sample that 11 of his peers in other Dutch hospitals were subsequently all able to analyse as cancerous.Mr Cluskey said he welcomed the investigation because he hoped it would have an independence that the May report – where the hospital essentially investigated itself – did not have, and could not possibly have had.“I am not alone in the view that the UMC Utrecht report was unbalanced. It was unbalanced because while the majority of the failings it uncovered were in the Pathology Department, the bulk of its focus seemed, inexplicably, to have been on what the Gynaecology Department could have done better. Ironically, Adrienne’s two doctors in gynaecology were the only ones who tried to help and support her.”And when the missing test was found, the hospital offered “no apology or explanation” for the error, Ms Cullen said at the time.She sued the hospital for medical negligence and was awarded €545,000, with €350,000 of the award listed as a settlement for pain and suffering.The 58-year-old University College Cork Sociology and Philosophy described the parallels between her own story and that of fellow Limerick women’s health campaigner Vicky Phelan as “striking and deeply disturbing”.Speaking with the Limerick Post shortly before her death and after being conferred with an honorary doctorate in laws at UCC, Ms Cullen – a former Salesians student who lived in Castletroy and later on the Ennis Road – said that she is determined to have a no-gagging clause policy enshrined in EU law.“There has to be an absolute ban in the EU on using confidentiality agreements which are gagging clauses between patients and their hospitals because they do not belong there,” she said.Ms Cullen, who was a respected journalist, said that the lack of any apology or explanation from the hospital added to her suffering.“It was the hospital that put up a wall of silence. They pulled down the shutters and tried to minimise what happened.“Myself and my husband were traumatised by that. We couldn’t believe it,” she said.

According to the GSEs, these incomes represent yet another step toward adding the capital necessary to move toward private ownership.“In the third quarter, Freddie Mac took an important first step toward exiting conservatorship by adding more than $1.8 billion to our total equity, bringing our capital reserve to $6.7 billion,” said David M. Brickman, Freddie Mac CEO. “As we look to the future, we are squarely focused on serving our mission and meeting the milestones necessary to move the company forward.”“Our strong quarterly results demonstrate the strength of Fannie Mae’s business and our ability to dynamically manage credit while serving the needs of our customers,” said Hugh R. Frater, Fannie Mae CEO. “We are focused on preparing for an eventual exit from conservatorship and providing liquidity for housing for low- and moderate-income Americans. “We will continue to work with our customers and partners to provide sustainable and stable sources of financing for affordable.”Fannie Mae was the largest issuer of single-family mortgage-related securities in the secondary market during the first nine months of 2019. The company’s estimated market share of new single-family mortgage-related securities issuances was 39% for the third quarter of 2019.Freddie Mac reports that conservatorship capital reduced by $5.2 billion from the prior year, due in part to credit risk transfer (CRT) activity, home price appreciation, legacy asset dispositions, and a decrease in deferred tax assets.The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently released a new Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a new 2020 Scorecard for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Common Securitization Solutions. According to the FHFA, the three objectives of this new Strategic Plan and Scorecard are to ensure that the GSEs foster competitive, liquid, efficient, and resilient (CLEAR) national housing finance markets; operate in a safe and sound manner appropriate for entities in conservatorship; and prepare for their eventual exits from the conservatorships.“Our nation’s mortgage finance system is in urgent need of reform,” said FHFA Director Mark Calabria. “The vision for reform articulated in the Strategic Plan and advanced in the Scorecard will serve borrowers and renters by preserving mortgage credit availability, protect taxpayers by ensuring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can withstand an economic downturn, and support a strong and resilient secondary mortgage market.” Related Articles

NCLAT was of the view that the order was tantamount to the imposition of a new rule, which was beyond the powers of NCLT. Thus, allowing the Union Government’s appeal, the Tribunal held that the said order was untenable as it suffered from material irregularities and was patently illegal in the eyes of law. “This Tribunal comes to an inevitable and irresistible conclusion that the directions issued in respect of Application No.2024/ 19 filed by the Resolution Professional to implead the ‘Secretary of Ministry of Corporate Affairs’ as party Respondent in all cases of I&B Code is nothing but beyond the power of the Tribunal and it tantamounts to imposition of a new rule in a compelling fashion. In short, the impugned order making it applicable throughout the country to all the Benches of the National Company Law Tribunal is untenable one and the said order suffers from material irregularity and patent illegality in the eye of Law. As a logical corollary, this Tribunal, this Tribunal set aside the impugned order dated 22.11.2019 in (IB)-939(PB)/2018 in furtherance of substantial cause of justice. Consequently, the present Appeal succeeds”, ordered NCLAT. In November 2019, the Principal Bench of NCLT had issued directions that MCA, through its Secretary, would be impleaded as a respondent party in all cases of the IBC and Company Petitions, on grounds that authentic records would then be made available by the officers of MCA for proper appreciation of the matter. The same was to be applicable throughout the country, to all the Benches of NCLT. Aggrieved by the same, the Centre preferred an appeal in NCLAT and the operation of the Order was stayed. In its challenge, the Centre argued that NCLT could not pass an order which was in the “nature of rule”, as rule making powers were the exclusive domain of the Government. Averring to the same, it was urged that the order was “bristled with numerous infirmities” as the Tribunal did not even issue a notice to the Centre before passing such an order. With regard to the issue of availability of authentic records, the Centre apprised the Tribunal that the Companies (Registration of Offices and Fees) Rules, 2014 and Section 399(1) (a) & (b) of the Companies Act, 2013 had provided for inspection and furnishing the certified copies of the documents kept by the Registrar on payment of requisite fees. It was further submitted that a Corporate Insolvency Resolution Professional is bound to produce the record, which is available in public for analysis and scrutiny on the MCA Portal. Taking note of these submissions, the 3-member Bench headed by Justice Venugopal M held that impleading a party is a subjective issue which must be considered carefully on a case to case basis. Emphasizing that such “wholesale, blanket and omnibus directions cannot be issued in single stroke”, the Bench enunciated that a notice must always be issued to a newly impleaded party, when such impleadment is deemed necessary. It was thus held:- “Whether a party is a proper/ necessary party for an effective and efficacious adjudication of the controversy involved in a given case, although it is for the concerned Tribunal/ Court/ Authority to subjectively consider the same based on facts and circumstances of a case, which float on the surface. In this regard, with an utmost care, caution and circumspection a finding has to be rendered by passing necessary orders in a objective and dispassionate manner for impleading a party to take part in the main arena of proceedings. Undoubtedly, a notice will have to be issued to the newly impleaded party and a just, fair and final order can only be passed after hearing the Objections/ Reply of the said party.” The Bench also went on to opine that observing the tenets of natural justice was of paramount importance. In the present case, the Bench held, these tenets had not been followed as the Centre had not been afforded an adequate opportunity to be heard. “In the instant case on hand, this Tribunal on going through the impugned order dated 22.11.2019 passed by the National Company Law Tribunal, New Delhi, Principal Bench in (IB)-939(PB)/2018, is of the considered opinion that the Appellant was not provided with an adequate opportunity of being heard in the subject matter in issue, except directions being issued in regard to the filing of affidavit on the issues therein and the filing of parawise reply.” It went on to lay down that if a Tribunal were to pass an order, without affording an opportunity of hearing to the parties, the same would be unsustainable in law. Only upon providing a reasonable opportunity of being heard to the other side can a Tribunal pass appropriate orders, it added. To this end, it was held that:- “…when an order like the impugned one is passed by the ‘Tribunal’ or ‘Competent Authority’ without hearing the party concerned, by not following the ‘principles of Natural Justice’ by not initially ordering notice and not taking into consideration of the objections of that party, certainly, it will result in serious miscarriage of justice, besides causing undue hardship.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
