WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary focused on those from non-traditional backgrounds

first_imgMonday Nov 23, 2020 WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary focused on those from non-traditional backgrounds Bath prop Beno Obano will explore race and class within rugby union as part of a new documentary launching on Amazon Prime Video this month.ADVERTISEMENTObano says he hopes the programme – titled Everybody’s Game – which launches on November 26, will help “change the perception” of the sport through a series of interviews with ethnic minority stars, including Maro Itoje, Anthony Watson and Ellis Genge.Obano said: “I think rugby has traditionally been a sport played and watched by middle-class white people.“But I’ve been able to benefit in so many ways from rugby and I obviously don’t fit that description.“With this documentary I want to change the perception of rugby and expose it to more people by telling the stories of non-traditional rugby players in the hope that those spectating and participating in rugby may slowly begin to grow and diversify.”Obano, who was born in London, has made 91 appearances for Bath and was called up to the England senior squad for the first time in 2018.ADVERTISEMENTObano sat down with Jim Hamilton to discuss the documentary project, as well as his England hopes and Eddie Jones.

Janetta Johnson: Fierce advocate for Black trans people in prisons

first_imgBy Janetta Louise JohnsonThe following is an edited version of a talk given by Janetta Louise Johnson during the Sept. 24 webinar “Women & Gender Oppressed Prisoners; Survival & Resistance.”  Johnson, a formerly incarcerated Black transgender woman, is the Executive Director at Transgender, Gender-Variant, and Intersex Justice Project. She has been an activist and advocate in the transgender communities since 1997, when she moved to San Francisco from Tampa, Fla.  She survived three and a half years in federal prison and, while inside, fiercely and tirelessly advocated for her rights as an incarcerated transgender person. Johnson believes that currently and formerly incarcerated trans people without a voice will be people without hope. She will continue to struggle to instill hope and belief in a better future for every transgender person that she can reach. Janetta Johnson                                                                                                 WW Photo: Mirinda CrissmanJanetta Johnson: I constantly am reminded of the trauma, the abuse, and atrocities that trans people are currently experiencing inside of custody. We [Transgender, Gender-Variant, and Intersex Justice Project] have a program where we correspond with trans people every Tuesday, which has not exactly been up since COVID-19. We have a staff to address a lot of the correspondence we received.We just hired a formerly incarcerated trans woman who has been out for about five months. She is one of the legal assistants to our legal director, Alex Binsfeld. And we’ve just been receiving a lot of information from various people on the inside, about the abuse and the trauma and atrocities that the trans people are experiencing.We especially think about trans people being the most vulnerable population inside the criminal justice systems generally, and when there’s a national pandemic. For many years, since I’ve lived in San Francisco in the Bay Area, I’ve always been concerned that if there was ever a national pandemic, how will Black trans people be served.I’m a firm believer that things [have] only gotten worse, because any type of disease or stigma is always more attached to trans people, and those are my concerns about the safety for trans people.We’ve received a lot of correspondence through various institutions that we’re very close to. One of them is Mule Creek [State Prison]. We are very connected to there. We’ve received information from the inside that there’s a lot of things going on in Kern Valley [State Prison], and that a lot of needs of the people in prison are not being met.So we’ve been doing a lot of legal correspondence with people, teaching them how to advocate for themselves to ensure that they are strengthened enough to use their own voice and their own penmanship in order to get their needs met. We’re working on various bills and policy to get people to cut down to 65% of the prison industrial complex, to meet that goal.We are trying to make sure that trans people are a large part of that population that would be cut and released. We work with the city, county courts, and probation officers to ensure that no trans people will be booked inside the system — that they will come to our organization which is doing things to support trans people inside, and getting them into safer opportunities as they’re being released.It’s been a lot of work. There’s been a lot of lack of resources or fundings and various things. We have been doing our best, really showing up and creating opportunities and trying to get trans people in more permanent, stable housing situations.  There are so many co-factors that put trans people at higher risk.‘Reentry must come with a paycheck’At TGIJP, I firmly believe that Black trans women will welcome anybody here. We’re just doing everything we can to create safe opportunities for people coming directly out of prison. Since COVID-19, we’ve brought on four trans people, who have spent long terms in prison, as reentry staff currently working with us.Reentry must come with a paycheck. There’s no other way to do reentry, because people don’t have the ability to access reentry opportunities that do not come with a paycheck. Especially with all the different things that were experienced, and movement for Black lives, so many Black trans people being murdered, it’s really difficult. You’re trying to create safety for people on the inside plus create safety for people on the outside.One last thing that I wanted to raise. I’m a formerly incarcerated Black trans woman. I hate it when people refer to people in prison as prisoners. I really have been talking to our legal director and saying that, I think you need to contact every organization that has “for prisoners” as their name or on the website. We should use a name that don’t forget that we are people in prison.I was a person that was in prison and served many, many stints of time in prison.  I’ve met so many amazing people in prison. This was the one time in my life that I felt empowered enough not to allow myself to be labeled as a prisoner because I had to look at my value of my worth and my wealth that I have on the inside. I’m not a prisoner. I’m a person who was a prisoner.There’s a lot of reasons why I was a person in prison based on the inequities and injustices that happens to Black trans people that are part of the criminal injustice system. So I really wish and would like to ask if we could please [stop] calling people that are in prison “prisoners.” There are so many amazing people that are in prison.  Give them the opportunity and the proper access.As we talk about defunding the police and investing more in communities, that’s more and more people that we could bring in and out of the criminal justice system, and provide them with opportunities that’s needed. And I just always will encourage people that re-entry must come with a paycheck.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘What Kind Of A Plea Is This?’ : Supreme Court Adjourns Plea Seeking Compensation For Sufferings Due To Emergency

A Bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul was presiding over the matter and was informed by Dr. Neela Gokhale, Advocate for the Petitioner, that the matter would be argued by Senior Advocate Harish Salve. Justice Kaul remarked at this juncture, “What kind of a plea is this? After 30-35 year.” Gokhale then referred to an order passed by the Allahabad High Court in July 2020, which directed for payment of rents arrears of a property which belonged to the petitioner’s husband, which was subjected to proceedings during Emergency. Accordingly, the Bench proceeded to list the matter next Monday. Drawn by Advocate Dr. Neela Gokhale and filed by Advocate-on-Record Anannya Ghosh, the plea avers that “the present petition is a plea for justice and restitution of a lifetime spent in utter misery and anguish on account of the atrocities suffered by the Petitioner, her deceases husband and her family”. Relying on the 2017 judgment of KS Puttaswamy (Retd.) vs. Union of India which overruled the 5-Judge Bench decision in ADM Jabalpur v. Shivkant Shukla (1976), the plea states that the burial of the darkest chapter in Indian democracy is yet to provide respite to the Petitioner who suffered atrocities at the hands of the authorities during the Emergency period. As victims of the Emergency, the petition recounts that the then government authorities, in their bid to plunder businesses and homes of victims, targeted the Petitioner and her husband with unjustifiable and arbitrary detention orders, and consequently led to them fleeing the country. “His business was shut down, assets and valuables including immovable property was seized and appropriated. The Petitioner’s husband succumbed to the pressure and died. Since then the Petitioner has been single-handedly facing all proceedings initiated against her husband during the Emergency period, which were arbitrarily pursued”. Referring to the judgment of the Delhi High Court passed in December 2014 which ultimately quashed the proceedings against the deceased husband of the Petitioner, the plea then conveys that valuables worth crores of rupees from the flourishing business of the husband, which were seized, are yet to be restituted. Additionally, it was only vide order dated 28th July, 2020, that the High Court directed for payment of arrears of rent for one of the properties to the Petitioner and other legal heirs. However, it has been contended that other valuable movable properties have been siphoned away. “Needless to say, that the valuable movable properties have been siphoned away and illegally appropriated by many government authorities and private persons during the time of emergency. Ironically, the Petitioner’s son had the most unpleasant experience and was shocked to see few of the stolen pieces of his mother’s jewellery up for sale in New Delhi”. At her advanced age, the Petitioner has sought for the fulfillment of a simple desire to achieve closure to her trauma and receive an acknowledgment of her suffice. In light of this, the instant plea has been filed before the Supreme Court.   Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

If it had not rained, we would have had more people come out. But we raised money for two good causes. We all had fun and next time will be even bigger and better.”The funds raised will support the Troy Rotary Club’s efforts to construct a gazebo at the Children’s Miracle Field at the Troy Recreation Park and an ADA restroom at the Pioneer Museum of Alabama.

Aby Rosen says firms have been too “nice-nice” with employees

first_imgShare via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsAby Rosenchrysler buildingCoronavirusRFR Realty RFR Holding’s Aby Rosen with the Seagram Building and the Chrysler Building (Photos via Getty; iStock)Aby Rosen is no fan of the work-from-home phenomenon.In fact, the RFR Holding chief says companies have been too “nice-nice” with their employees.At his portfolio — which includes the Seagram Building and a number of Fifth and Madison Avenue office towers — tenants are still paying rent but only 12 percent of workers have returned, according to Bloomberg News.Like many other real estate executives, Rosen has brought back his full staff. His firm’s 110 employees can take a car service in, lunch is covered and suburban dwellers are invited to stay at RFR’s Gramercy Park Hotel.Read moreAby Rosen is bringing back the Chrysler Building’s observation deckAby Rosen buys Midtown office building for $350MAby Rosen, Michael Fuchs back new retail brokerage Manhattan office occupancy is still below 15 percent, according to an October memo Cushman & Wakefield sent to clients. And ahead of the holidays (and with a second wave of infections in full swing), office attendance has been thinning out across the city.Rosen says Mayor Bill de Blasio’s back-and-forth on school reopenings hasn’t helped the situation, and that he’s given the mayor an “earful.” But overall, the executive said de Blasio who has just about a year of his second term left, is “checked out.”But Rosen is optimistic about New York City’s comeback. He thinks a new mayor — he says he likes former Citigroup vice chairman Ray McGuire — and the potential for a new stimulus under President-elect Joe Biden could go a long way.He’s also got big plans for the crown jewels of his portfolio. The Seagram Building at 375 Park Avenue is undergoing a $30 million renovation, which will see an underground garage transformed into a “Playground,” outfitted with a rock-climbing wall, a basketball court, a boxing ring and more.The Chrysler Building, which he and partner Signa Group purchased for $151 million last year, will undergo a $200 million overhaul. (A ground lease held by the Cooper Union has the landmark operating in the red, but Rosen is in talks to restructure the agreement.)However, RFR’s three hotels and restaurants won’t reopen until sometime in 2021. Still, the landlord says he’s pulling in nearly half of retail rents and advised his leasing agents to work with tenants to avoid vacancies.[Bloomberg News] — Danielle Balbilast_img read more

Tidal modulation of ice shelf buttressing stresses

first_imgOcean tides influence the flow of marine-terminating glaciers. Observations indicate that the large fortnightly variations in ice flow at Rutford Ice Stream in West Antarctica originate in the floating ice shelf. We show that nonlinear variations in ice shelf buttressing driven by tides can produce such fortnightly variations in ice flow. These nonlinearities in the tidal modulation of buttressing stresses can be caused by asymmetries in the contact stress from migration of the grounding line and bathymetric pinning points beneath the ice shelf. Using a simple viscoelastic model, we demonstrate that a combination of buttressing and hydrostatic stress variations can explain a diverse range of tidal variations in ice shelf flow, including the period, phase and amplitude of flow variations observed at Rutford and Bindschadler Ice Streams.last_img read more

Hybrid agency Nested raises £5m in funding round to boost national expansion

first_imgGoing places – the Nested team. The company has just received a £5m funding boost New-breed estate agent Nested has raised £5m to expand operations – with investors including German media giant Axel Springer, which also has a stake in Purplebricks.Nested has also revealed it has been using the cover of COVID-19 to test a new growth model, focused on creating a new hyper-local estate agency service.CEO Matt Robinson, who was co-founder of GoCardless, said the £5m investment would bring “the vast industry experience and resources of Axel Springer to the board, in advance of Nested expanding the footprint of our modern estate agent offering in 2021”.Axel Springer is a prominent global investor in the new breed of estate agents, and has taken the holding through its subsidiary Aviv Group. Existing Nested shareholders Balderton and Northzone Capital also re-upped their investment. The move follows an earlier fundraise of £20m.Nested launched its hyper-local scheme in five areas of London in 2020, using agents with in-depth knowledge of their area, and has quickly gained up to 15% market share.With another handful of areas launching in Q1, the company is planning to launch an additional 30 areas over the next 18 months, as well as moving outside London for the first time.‘Truly modern agent’Robinson said: “The average home-selling experience is poor and it’s not at all clear what your agent is even doing. There are some great agents out there, however, the tools traditional agents have and the services they can offer to customers are antiquated.“That’s why we’ve built a truly modern estate agent where we hire the best local agents out of traditional agency and support them with unrivalled technology and unique features like our buying agent, chain management and advance.”He said Nested had been rated as ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot and recently became the only Mumsnet-rated estate agent in the UK.Nested recently released updates to its mobile app which give vendors instant access to every aspect of their sale, from viewing feedback and scheduled viewings to even showing what actions an agent has taken to generate interest, and how many times they have chased up specific enquiries.Dr Marc Rustige of Axel Springer said: “We are firm believers in the opportunity to modernise and digitise estate agency services.“From our global market scan we could see that Nested was building out a powerful offering that combines a superb experience for home sellers and buyers. We are already seeing the success of their approach with strong growth in local market share across London.”nested investment boost Axel Springer invests in nested nested unveils new hyperlocal strategy April 7, 2021Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?
