South Africa end New Zealands winning Sevens streak

first_imgTuesday Apr 8, 2008 South Africa end New Zealands winning Sevens streak New Zealand’s Sevens team can be beaten. Since December 2006, we all thought those words would never be uttered. But, on the weekend in Adelaide, South Africa finally ended the men in black’s 47 match winning streak in the Australian leg of the IRB Sevens World Series.A classic match that saw the Boks having to gang tackle and defend like men possessed when needed, South Africa succeeded in denying New Zealand too much ball and avoided the confrontational, physical type of game on which they have thrived all season.Unbeaten in the last 7 tournaments, the New Zealand side are big, strong, and incredibly fast. Led by DJ Forbes and mentored by legendary Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens, the multi-talented teams winning streak, that looked to last all season, was broken by the determined resistance of the Boks.Veteran Sevens superstar Fabian Juries was the hero of the day, with Juries scoring twice, including the vital final winning try. Young flyer Robert Ebersohn also featured prominently. The 19 year old looks a real prospect for the future of SA Sevens.The incomparable Victor Vito scored another unstoppable try for the men in black, which we’re becoming used to from the big guy, but it was the Springboks who came out on top and celebrated a historic 15-7 win in front of the 17 000 strong Adelaide crowd.

Hundreds of university employees on zero hour contracts

first_imgAn investigation by the Universities and Colleges Union has revealed that 83 teaching staff and 122 ‘academic related’ staff are on the controversial contracts in the university.The report found that across the UK, 24,427 academic staff are employed on the contracts, in over half of higher education institutions. According to data from the Higher Education Standards Authority, this constitutes 12% of all academic staff.The UCU investigation concluded, “For staff, zero-hour contracts present huge drawbacks in comparison to permanent regular work: there is no guaranteed level of regular earnings that provides any certainty over meeting bills or planning for the future… In short, zero-hour contracts are not compatible with developing a professional workforce delivering quality services.”Simon Renton, President of UCU, commented further, “Our findings shine a light on the murky world of casualisation in further and higher education. Their widespread use is the unacceptable underbelly of our colleges and universities.”He continued, “For far too many people, it is simply a case of exploitation.”Zero-hour contracts hire staff with no guarantee of work or a wage, instead depending on workers being called to work on a short term basis. They have been criticised for giving no stability to employees, but advocates argue they are necessary to give employers flexibility.An Oxford University spokesperson defended the use of the contracts, which are officially described as “variable hours contracts”. They told Cherwell, “Many of those listed on variable hours contracts also have permanent contracts, to which the variable hours contract is merely an addition, so the variable hours contracts is not their primary contract of employment with the University.“Variable hours contracts are full University contracts of employment that may be permanent or fixed duration. Variable hours contracts are used when it is not possible to predict the number of hours of work available.”The revelations about Oxford’s use of zero hour contracts come amidst growing debate about their use. The Office for National Statistics claims that 250,000 people are on the contracts, although many claim that this is an underestimate.Labour MP Tom Watson recently called for a ban on the contracts, arguing, “If employers want to be that flexible with wages then they must realise workers can’t be. They can’t be flexible with shopping bills, rent and mortgage payments.” Andy Burnham, the shadow health secretary, has also said Ed Miliband should “go further” in his emphasis on a living wage, and promise to ban zero-hour contracts.In August, the business secretary Vince Cable launched a review into the use of zero-hour contracts, suggesting that “at one end of the market” they can be “exploitative.”Oxford students had a mixed response to the use of the contracts in the university. One St Hilda’s undergraduate said, “It is outrageous that a university with resources like ours can fail to give waged work to so many people.”However, one second year PPEist commented, “Unemployment is a serious problem and zero hour contracts free up employers hands to quickly and efficiently hire those who perhaps would otherwise be out of a job.”last_img read more

Landlord, Not Tenant, Responsible For Insuring Building In Fire, COA Says

first_imgThe Indiana Court of Appeals reversed the denial of a tenant’s motion for judgment against a landlord’s insurer after finding that the parties’ commercial leasing agreement unambiguously provided that the landlord would ensure a building damaged in a fire.In August 2015, a fire destroyed property leased out by Greg Dotson to Robert Youell and Best One Giant Tire, Inc. The parties’ commercial lease provided that the landlord would insure the building “in such amounts as Landlord shall deem appropriate,” while the tenant would insure its personal property inside the building in the event of a fire.Following the fire, the Cincinnati Insurance Company paid Dotson $227,653 for damages to the building, but later filed a complaint against the tenants to recover that amount as a subrogee of the landlord. The tenants filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings, arguing CIC had no right to pursue the subrogation claim because Dotson’s agreement to provide property insurance was an agreement to provide both parties with the benefits of insurance.The Marion Superior Court denied the tenants’ motion but certified its order for an interlocutory appeal. On appeal, the tenants argued the trial court should have granted their motion for judgment on the pleadings. Specifically, the tenants asserted that Morsches Lumber, Inc. v. Probst, 180 Ind. App. 202, 388 N.E.2d 284 (Ind. Ct. App. 1979) was controlling, and the appellate court agreed.“Like the contract in Morsches Lumber, here the Commercial Lease Agreement unambiguously provides that Landlord would ensure the building and Tenant would ensure its personal property inside the building,” Chief Judge Nancy Vaidik wrote for the court. “Landlord and Tenant’s agreement to insure was thus an agreement to provide both parties with the benefits of the insurance and expressly allocated the risk of loss in case of fire to insurance.”The panel further noted Dotson was limited in his recovery to the insurance proceeds and that CIC had no subrogation rights against the tenants, dismissing CIC’s reliance on LBM Realty, LLC v. Mannia, 19 N.E.3d 379 (Ind. Ct. App. 2014).“In LBM Realty, the lease did not require the landlord to maintain property insurance and only recommended that the tenant obtain renter’s insurance; as a result, the parties’ expectations with respect to liability for damage to the leased premises was unknown,” Vaidik continued. “Here, however, the Commercial Lease Agreement unambiguously provides that Landlord would insure the building.”Thus, the appellate court reversed and remanded the case with instructions for the trial court to grant the tenants motion for judgment on the pleadings in Robert Youell and Best One Giant Tire, Inc. v. The Cincinnati Insurance Company a/s/o Greg Dotson, 18A-CT-1466. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Kate Stancombe for www.theiindianalayer.comlast_img read more

Remembering Arnold Palmer: 12 inspiring quotes to live life to the fullest

first_imgProfessional golfer, businessman, pilot, icon and trailblazer, The King was accredited with many accomplishments during his long and full life. The man was so intriguing that the drink he often ordered in the clubhouse became a brand of its own, sharing his name. Palmer was a golfing giant, who’s records still hold as true as the legacy he leaves behind, on and off the course. There is no better way to celebrate the life of this legend than to sit back with a fresh Arnold Palmer and reflect on some of his greatest quotes.“The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done.”“What other people may find in poetry or art museums; I find in the flight of a good drive.”“You must play boldly to win.”“I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game: it’s called an eraser.”“Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger.”“I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.”“Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.”“The road to success is always under construction.”“Winning isn’t everything, but wanting it is.”“The more I practice, the luckier I get.”“When people ask what’s driven me all these years, I always give the same answer. It’s you.”“I’m not much for sitting around and thinking about the past or talking about the past. What does that accomplish? If I can give young people something to think about, like the future, that’s a better use of my time.” 74SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Detailslast_img read more
