The long and short of it

first_img James Bowers, Russell Jones & Walker, London Unusually, there have been two pronouncements on judgment writing from high judicial officers in the UK recently (news, 23 November). The long and short of it is a win for the sensible call that judgments need to be clearer and shorter, but that there is also room for improvement by advocates. First, Lady Arden of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales has noted that judgments are getting longer, a fact that she laments in terms of its impact on the attractiveness of the English jurisdiction as a forum for worldwide litigation. She says the target audience includes non-lawyers (especially litigants in person) and should therefore aim for simplicity of expression. She quotes Blaise Pascal: ‘If I had had more time I would have written a shorter letter.’ She also calls on advocates to shorten their written submissions and witness statements and for appellate judges to agree more often. This was followed up by Lord Neuberger, president of the UK Supreme Court (the highest judicial office in the UK since it replaced the judicial House of Lords), who reiterated much of what Lady Arden said, and added calls for summaries at the beginning of judgments and for the use of tables of contents. He also referred to the difficulty of interpreting multi-judgment appellate decisions.last_img read more

‘Dream transfer’ to Manchester City awaits player, more claims on potential…

first_imgEarlier today we covered claims from La Voz de Galicia that Manchester City are set to use a €12m buyback clause and take Angeliño from PSV. The 22 year old is from Galicia so it seemed pretty clear they were getting their information from a source close to the player.Claims and responses have now appeared in the Netherlands.De Telegraaf say Angeliño is on the verge of a ‘dream transfer’, being his return to Pep Guardiola’s side. The Dutch newspaper say ‘sources around the English club’ have confirmed this.Despite that, they say the situation ‘is not yet definitive’.Meanwhile, Eindhoven Dagblad sound like they don’t want it to be true. They say there’s ‘plenty of interest’ but the player’s future is still ‘unclear’.Embed from Getty ImagesIt’s stated ‘reliable sources’ have said the La Voz de Galicia report about a Manchester City return is ‘speculative’.That’s at least a little unfair. La Voz don’t throw around rumours like confetti, and this clearly isn’t something they’ve plucked from thin air.

“Until my legs burst” – Zidane has Pogba alternative, Manchester United…

first_imgThere’s a couple of reports coming from Spain on Monday which surely won’t be welcomed in the Paul Pogba household. The midfielder flirted with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, and given how Manchester United’s season has gone so far, he’s probably not dropped that desire completely.Zinedine Zidane very much wanted the French midfielder on his team, feeling Pogba would be able to solve many of the problems Madrid were facing.The manager almost seemed in a sulk, making it very clear there was a gap in his selection and that the failure to sign Pogba was a serious one.Manchester United were completely set against a sale, and it didn’t appear like Florentino Perez was ready to throw everything he could at the potential transfer.The season started, Real Madrid had some stutters, and eyes turned to the January window and beyond. A real attempt for Pogba would have to be made, or for an alternative like Christian Eriksen.Yet now Fede Valverde has entered the room. The 21 year old Uruguayan was signed by Madrid’s second string in 2016 and at the weekend he put in a Man of the Match performance as Madrid beat Granada 4-2.Both Marca and AS now report that Valverde can be Zidane’s Pogba. Fulfilling the role the manager wanted, and therefore making signing the Manchester United star less necessary.Valverde’s performance was so good that AS say his style was reminiscent of Steven Gerrard, he was all action and everywhere he needed to be.The player himself is quoted as saying: “I have a physique to press and whenever I can I will do it, until my legs burst.”It’s just one game, but if he keeps this up then it’s got to be unlikely Perez will break the bank for Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Men In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Leafs force game seven with 5-4 come-from-behind victory

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe Castlegar Rebels are quietly resting waiting for its next playoff opponent after disposing the Spokane Braves in five games.The odds-on favourite to play the Rebels in the Murdoch Final is the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. But the Nelson Leafs have a thing or two to say about who will be making the trip to the Sunflower City later this week.Cameron Dobransky slammed in a centering pass from Colton Malmsten with less than three minutes remaining in the third period to snap a 4-4 tie and power the Leafs to a thrilling 5-4 come-from-behind victory in game six of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Murdoch semi final Tuesday at the NDCC Arena. The win evens the best-of-seven series at 3-3 with game seven Wednesday in Fruitvale.“I was amazed that it went in at first,” said a beaming Dobransky from outside the jubilant Leaf dressing room.“(Colton) Malmsten was right behind the net. We made eye contact and he made a great feed out to me . . ..” added the 17-year-old Pentictonite. “I’m pretty sure I had my eyes closed when I took the shot but it went in that’s the main thing.“That’s the biggest high of my life right now.”Beaver Valley coach Terry Jones was beside himself trying to explain what just happened.After controlling his emotions, the veteran Junior B skipper had this to say about the collapse of his team.“We were just (awful) in the third period,” Jones exclaimed. “We had two defencemen that could play. The rest of them were terrible.”“And I couldn’t believe the effort,” he added. “Like (our guys) come out and play that soft in the third period of a game that could end it. We have a two-goal lead and we come back and we give them a goal. . . ..We give it to them. It’s just unbelievable.”The Hawks looked to have this game in the bag and a trip to the next round of the playoffs.Riding the leadership and goal scoring of Ryon Sookro, who bagged a goal and an assist to lift Beaver Valley to a 4-2 lead 49 seconds into the third period, all the visitors had to do was play out the period and the series was over in six.But quicker than game announcer Gord Davis could announce the Beaver Valley power play goal by Arie Postmus, Colton Schell got the Leafs back to within a goal by sweeping a loose puck past Michael Vlanich. The Beaver Valley netminder had lost his balance after making the save giving Schell a wide-open net.Despite the quick score by Nelson, Beaver Valley still looked to have just enough as the teams plodded though the third period.That was until Dallon Stoddart streaked into the Beaver Valley end on a partial breakaway. Vlanich was equal to the test, making a remarkable save. But Stoddart’s effort seem to inspire the Leafs, who scored the tying marker seconds later when Evan J. Moir beat Vlanich from close range.Two minutes later Dobransky completed the comeback with his third goal of the series.“Motivation . . . positive attitude in the room. Nobody wanted to go home early,” Dobransky explained. “We want to be here until the middle of March. We want to go all the way and that’s what picked us up, made us continue on and comeback for another game.”Connor Enright and Patrick Martens gave Nelson a 2-1 first period lead. Postmus scored for Beaver Valley.In the second, Sookro on the power play and Derek Lashuk gave the Hawks a 3-2 advantage.Nelson out shot the Hawks 29-25 with Marcus Beesley registering his third home-ice victory of the playoffs.“So it’s come back down to again of who wants it the most,” Jones said.Stay tuned Rebel faithful.OVERTIME: Gavin Currie led the Leafs with two points in the game. . . .Nelson snipers Dustin Johnson and Joel Stewart did not play in game six. Johnson was suspended after receiving a game misconduct with 34 seconds remaining in game five. Stewart has left the team for person reasons said Leaf coach Chris Shaw. . . .Raymond Reimer also missed the game due to injury. . . .The Nelson Bantam Reps, off to Smithers in March for the Tier III Bantam Provincials, raised more than $900 during a fundraiser at Tuesday’s game. The team held a bake sale along with a paper-airplane toss into a passing new 2011 Ford Ranger truck. . . . The game attendance was 591. . . . At the end of the game  while the Leafs were heading to celebrate the win with goalie Marcus Beesley, Colton Malmsten clipped Tyler Collins of the Hawks on the helmet with his stick.

Leicester heap more misery on Moyes

first_imgAnd Shakespeare seemed to have the Midas touch as two of his substitutes combined to break the deadlock with Marc Albrighton crossing for Slimani’s opener on 69 minutes.Albrighton then came up trumps again when he teed up Vardy to score the decisive second and lift champions Leicester nine points clear of the drop zone.But it was another bleak night for Moyes, whose week has been beset by controversy over his threat to slap a female reporter.The former Manchester United boss was backed publicly by Sunderland hours before this game but defeat leaves his bottom of the table side seemingly doomed to relegation, lying eight points from safety with eight games left.Leicester made the brighter start and had the first glimmer of a chance in the fourth minute.Demarai Gray advanced down the left touchline and crossed to the near post, where Shinji Okazaki arrived following a well-timed run to fire wide.The visitors had been under the cosh but they enjoyed a moment of encouragement when Didier N’Dong delivered a teasing cross from the right towards the head of Seb Larsson.Leicester defender Danny Simpson had to make an important clearance at the far post to concede a corner.But Jordan Pickford was needed again on 16 minutes when he made a one-handed save to prevent a Robert Huth header dipping in from a Riyad Mahrez free-kick.Sunderland responded by winning a corner but it only brought a poor header by Jack Rodwell that flew well wide.Moyes’s side grew in confidence, though, and twice caused alarm for the hosts when a corner flashed across goal and bounced behind off Huth, then when Jermain Defoe saw a long-range effort deflect wide.– Sloppy play –Leicester were careless in possession early in the second half and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was forced to race from his area to head a high ball clear.Then more sloppy play from the hosts handed possession to Moyes’s men, who carved out a shooting chance for Rodwell, but his effort from just inside the area was charged down.Then Larsson tried his luck from outside the area but Schmeichel made a comfortable save.And the Swede took responsibility for a 25-yard free-kick moments later but bent it well over the crossbar.Sunderland were the more likely scorers as the hour-mark approached and they had a sight of goal with Defoe, who teed himself up for a shot just inside the area but placed it too close to Schmeichel.A rare Leicester opening came from a corner but a glancing header by Huth gave Pickford an easy save.The breakthrough came on 69 minutes as Shakespeare’s two substitutes combined to devastating effect.Albrighton found space on the left and delivered an inswinging cross for Slimani, who glanced his effort past Pickford and inside the far post.Moyes had no such luck with his substitutes as replacement Victor Anichebe rattled the post.And it was all over on 78 minutes when Albrighton chased a lost cause and crossed for Vardy, who produced a stunning finish.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leicester City’s striker Jamie Vardy (C) celebrates scoring his team’s second goal against Sunderland at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, central England on April 4, 2017 © AFP / Paul ELLISLEICESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 5 – Leicester City moved within touching distance of Premier League safety and piled more misery on Sunderland manager David Moyes with a 2-0 victory over the strugglers on Tuesday.Craig Shakespeare now has five wins in five games as Leicester manager after substitute Islam Slimani and England striker Jamie Vardy struck in the second half.last_img read more

Web Site Attempts to Collect Every Rule of Thumb

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… josh catone 1 Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Product Reviews#web Related Posts center_img You can stay in control of virtually any situation as long as you know where your towel is. That’s a good rule of thumb to remember for anyone planet hopping around the universe. But how do you know how to evaluate the programmer for your next project? Or know if that girl (or guy) at the end of the bar likes you? Don’t panic. Terrestrial travelers can consult a new web site called Rules of Thumb that is attempting to catalogue all those nifty bits of knowledge that fall somewhere between adage and old wives tale. You know, like, when the cows are sitting down, expect rain in the near future.“A rule of thumb is a homemade recipe for making a guess,” says the Rules of Thumb site. “It is an easy-to-remember guide that falls somewhere between a mathematical formula and a shot in the dark.”The site is the brainchild of Tom Parker, author of — you guessed it — “Rules of Thumb” (and “Rules of Thumb 2” and “Never Trust a Calm Dog”), an out of print collection of little household sayings that was published in the mid 1980s. Parker, who is a contributing writer for MAKE Magazine and works at Cornell University as a project manager, did the late night TV and news circuit with his books in the 80s and 90s, appearing on Letterman, Carson, and the CBS Evening News.Now the the books are no longer in print, Parker decided to try bringing his collection of rules of thumb to the web and launched his web site a little over two weeks ago with the ambitious goal “to collect every rule of thumb on earth at one handy web address.” It has since signed up over 900 members and lists hundreds of rules of thumb based in part on his previously published work.Unlike his traditionally published books, Parker is putting editorial control over the Rules of Thumb website in the hands of the crowd. Anyone can contribute a new rule, but other users will have the ability to vote up or down whether new rules make it into the main database. Once in the DB, users can rate and review rules, which Parker tells us allows the site to employ “a Darwinian weeding mechanism which will let the content improve in value over time.”So what does a rule of thumb look like? Well, this one states that, “One excellent programmer will typically contribute as much to a project as nine mediocre programmers.” Well, probably — that’s more or less what our own Alex Iskold argued in October. And this rule tells us that, “If you are talking to someone that you like, when you are in a bright room, look in their eyes, if their pupils are dilated (big), then its possible they like you.” Or, maybe they just ate some tainted meat.If those rules sound more like things you might hear over the water cooler rather than hard and true facts, that’s because they are. As Parker says, “a rule of thumb is a highly personal thing.” These are things that probably should not be taken as gospel, but they are part of the pantheon of human knowledge, and Parker’s goal is to record it all in a modern Hitchhiker’s Guide-esque online tome.

Council decides fate of downtown parking lot

first_imgThe Columbia City Council decides what it may do with a high-profile parking lot on Monday night.The council is planning to expand Flat Branch Park at the corner of Broadway and Providence in front of the Columbia Real Estate building. That’s the spot where a CVS Pharmacy was rejected several times.The owners of the current building had a deal for parking spots in the city-owned lot for decades, but that agreement expired in August 2018. Now the council must decide whether to move ahead with a park expansion that gets rid of the lot, or a compromise that at least keeps some of it.The expansion will cost $1.9 million, but there is no money in the city budget for it. The plan is to start fundraising soon so that the upgrades could be ready by the city’s bicentennial in May 2021.last_img read more
