Work Hard, Keep Pushing – The inspiring story of Oga Mabaya

first_imgThursday Mar 1, 2018 Work Hard, Keep Pushing – The inspiring story of Oga Mabaya ‘Work Hard, Keep Pushing’ is the story of rugby player Oga Mabaya, a man who left Zimbabwe in 2005 for the promise of a more stable life in England. This short film shows how his perseverance against the odds reaped rewards and personal satisfaction.Born in Zimbabwe in 1990, Oga and his family left to escape the econimic crisis.Moving to a rural town in the North of England proved to be a difficult transition, but he used his love for rugby to help himself integrate into a new country, make new friends and lead a better life.As a filmmaker and former rugby player himself, Garth Dew has brilliantly captured Oga’s journey, with the aim of telling the inspiring story of his dreams of playing 1st XV rugby for Preston Grasshoppers. However, with Oga’s self-professed lack of talent and physical ability, that seemed unlikely.Oga committed to doing everything that he could to make that dream a reality, and his story is testament to the old adage that there is no substitute for hard work.“I am no superstar, but I’m the best version of me I can be,” he says.Dew adds: “In the end, that’s all we can strive for, and hopefully this film will give everyone the belief and motivation to go out and achieve their goals, no matter how big, small, or insignificant they may seem to others.”It’s an inspiring tale and one that hopefully all rugby players will enjoy.

Ireland snatch win but Johnny Sexton admits they are short of where they should be right now

first_imgMonday Mar 15, 2021 Ireland snatch win but Johnny Sexton admits they are short of where they should be right now Johnny Sexton admits Ireland are currently falling short of being a top international team and must prove their credentials by ending the Guinness Six Nations with an overdue win over England.ADVERTISEMENTDefensive errors against Scotland on Sunday caused a 14-point lead to evaporate before a late penalty from nerveless captain Sexton allowed them to escape with a slender 27-24 success.Victory at Murrayfield moved the Irish second in the tournament standings ahead of the final weekend showdown with Eddie Jones’ men in Dublin.Ireland are still seeking a first major scalp of the Andy Farrell era having twice been beaten by both France and England since the start of 2020.Sexton was far from happy with the manner of the win in Edinburgh and – after early defeats to Grand Slam-chasing Wales and Les Bleus derailed their Championship hopes – wants to end an unconvincing campaign on a high.“As good a team as Scotland are, we have to look at ourselves first and foremost and need to improve,” said the 35-year-old.“If you have a 14-point lead in international rugby, the next moment is the most important one and you can – not finish the game – but put a statement down.ADVERTISEMENT“Top teams they take the kick-off, they clear their lines and then they put pressure on again. We’re just short of that at the moment.”Focusing on England – who suffered surprise defeats to Scotland and Wales last month – Sexton continued: “We’re up to second now, so big end to the tournament next week.“We feel that we’ve been building.ADVERTISEMENT“We feel we were a little bit unlucky in the first couple of games but we’re playing against – even though they’ve had a couple of bad results – the team that was in the World Cup final, the team that won the Six Nations last year, the team that won the Autumn Nations Cup.“They’re a top, top team and we have to prove that we can match them and put in a performance to beat one of the top teams because we haven’t done it as of yet.”WATCH: 120kg prop leaves Scottish player on his arse after amazing footwork in Six NationsIreland have not defeated England since clinching the 2018 Grand Slam in London, losing each of the four subsequent meetings.After their title defence was snuffed out with two rounds to spare, the English responded with a statement win from Saturday’s enthralling clash with France.Ireland head coach Farrell was impressed with the quality of that encounter and expects to face a buoyant England side.“As far as the English are concerned, they’ll certainly reference their performance next week on what happened in the last performance,” he said.“For all of the purists of rugby, I thought it was an outstanding game and both teams were deserved winners in the end.“England played some outstanding rugby and so did France. That’s the team we’ve got coming over.“Regarding their campaign so far, that’s for them to talk about not us.”Farrell could be without vice-captain James Ryan on Saturday after he suffered a head injury against the Scots, while he has a big call to make on misfiring wing James Lowe.New Zealand-born Lowe has started every Ireland game he has been available for since qualifying under residency rules in the autumn but is yet to convince at Test level and was at fault for Scotland’s first two tries.“We’ll sit down with James and obviously there are others as well that we need to sit down with and keep educating them regarding what international football is all about,” said Farrell.“There are guys that are in there that are very young as far as their experience is concerned but for anyone to experience a win at Murrayfield is something to be proud of and I’m sure they’ll look back on.“As far as progressing James’ game, we’ll help him like we’ll help everyone else as well.”Extended highlights from the match: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 13 WEEKS AGO Tributes pour in as Sonny Bill Williams thanks… 13 WEEKS AGO Thorley and Hepetema suspended after dismissals… 13 WEEKS AGO Four year ban for RFU player who attempted… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

‘Unjustified’ : Senior Lawyers Criticize Supreme Court’s Move To Transfer COVID Matters From High Courts To Itself

first_imgTop Stories’Unjustified’ : Senior Lawyers Criticize Supreme Court’s Move To Transfer COVID Matters From High Courts To Itself Manu Sebastian22 April 2021 5:34 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court is being widely criticized within the legal community for its decision to take suo moto cognizance of COVID19-related issues while the High Courts are dealing with the same.Today morning, Chief Justice of India SA Bobde gave clear indications that the Supreme Court wanted to take over the issues from High Courts. The CJI said that six different High Courts dealing the matters have caused “confusion and diversion of resources”, though no one has approached the Supreme Court raising such a complaint.The bench, also including Justices L Nageswara Rao and S Ravindra Bhat, appointed Senior Advocate Harish Salve (who incidentally happened to be in the VC hearing in a case seeking reopening of Vedanta’s sterlite plant) as an amicus curiae in the matter.The Supreme Court’s extraordinary move came after the High Courts of Bombay and Delhi made urgent interventions on Wednesday night to ensure supplies of oxygen and medicines to COVID-19 patients, after making certain strong critical observations against the Central Government.While social media and messenger groups are abuzz with critical remarks against the Supreme Court, LiveLaw reached out to certain senior members of the legal fraternity for their views.Retrograde Step, Senior Advocate Mukul RohatgiSenior Advocate and former Attorney General of India Mukul Rohatgi said :”I completely disagree with the view of the SC. High Courts are competent to deal with the issue as it unfolds in the concerned state. Local conditions and local problems and the solutions can be best addressed by them. It’s a retrograde step. High Courts will become redundant now”, he said.Mr.Rohatgi also said that the Supreme Court’s order of ad-interim stay on the Allahabad High Court direction to impose lockdown in 5 UP cities to contain the COVID19 surge was wrong.”Even the ad-interim stay of the Allahabad High Court order was wrong”, he added.Uncalled for and unjustified : Senior Advocate Dushyant DaveSenior Advocate and former President of the Supreme Court Bar Association Dushyant Dave said :”The Supreme Court’s suo moto intervention seeking to restrain the High Courts from discharging their constitutional duties is absolutely uncalled for and unjustified, firstly, for the simple reason that the supreme Court has been sitting as a silent spectator to the happenings in the country for the last few months. They should have seen the writing on the wall. The Supreme Court, if at all it was concerned about the citizens, should have intervened suo moto earlier to ensure that the government was functioning properly and that adequate hospitals, vaccines, medicines, oxygen supplies were available for COVID patients. The government has been sleeping and the Supreme Court also has been sleeping unfortunately over this period. Therefore, morally Supreme Court is unjustified in intervening when the High Courts have decided to intervene.Secondly, High Courts are in a better position to know the local conditions. Therefore, the Supreme Court sitting in Delhi really have no business in interfering with the High Courts’ functioning. High Courts are independent, not subordinate to the Supreme Court. Ultimately, every life matters today. If High Courts’ intervention, however unpalatable it might be to the SC judges, can save few lives, then there is no reason that the Supreme Court should intervene. Supreme Court’s intervention, far from aiding the citizens and protecting their right to life, is likely to result in loss of lives and in violation of Article 21. The Supreme Court will be well advised to back off”Dave was also criticized the appointment of Senior Advocate Salve as an amicus curiae in the case and termed it “uncalled for”.”Mr Salve is a very able lawyer and I have no doubt about Salve’s abilities. And Salve is a very close friend of Chief Justice Bobde – a child hood friend. There is no reason why Mr Salve should again and again be appointed by Chief Justice Bobde as amicus curiae. Particularly because, Mr.Salve is not in India. He has been a non-resident and living in London for a long time. He does not know the realities of India. He does not know the sufferings of Indian people. He does not know the pain of Indians. Whatever be his abilities, frankly Mr. Salve has conflict of interest, because he represents the biggest industrial houses of the country, including Sterlite. Mr.Salve’s statement to reopen the Sterlite plant itself frankly disentitles him to carry on as amicus curiae. I am really disturbed that Chief Justice Bode has appointed Mr.Salve as amicus when he is not available in India. There are many many top class, fiercely independent lawyers in this country, and Mr.Salve’s proximity to the government of the day is well known. He has appeared to defend the government directly and indirectly in large number of cases during Covid”.Dave further asked “It is a very serious issue why the Supreme Court has intervened. Is it to help the government for it to hide its failures?”. Dave also shared a sense of disappointment that the other judges of the bench do not act when the presiding judge of the bench is doing something wrong.”I have greatest respect for the Supreme Court. I have immense respect for Justices L Nageswara Rao and Justice Ravindra Bhat sitting on the bench. I must still say, I am deeply disappointed, that judges sitting with the Chief Justice or judges like Justice Arun Mishra, have never been able to stop anything wrong being done by the presiding judge. It is a really sad commentary on the Supreme Court. They must remember -every judge is a judge of the Supreme Court. He is bound by the constitutional oath. The Chief Justice is just the first among the equals. He is not their boss”.’Unfortunate’ : Senior Advocate Anjana PrakashSenior Advocate and former judge of the Patna High Court Anjana Prakash said :”I think it is unfortunate.What was the illegality in the High Court order?As far as I know, despite the hierarchical system of Courts, the High Court is not a subordinate court of the Supreme Court whose every order has to meet the approval of the Supreme Court, as would be required in the bureaucracy.Therefore many in legal circles see the interference akin to the manner in which a superior officer in the bureaucracy gives orders to a subordinate”.’Surprised’ : Senior Advocate Chander Uday SinghSenior Advocate Chander Uday Sigh said :”I am surprised that the Supreme Court should seek to step into six separate proceedings being heard on a war footing by six high courts across the country. This comes at a time when over-centralised decision making is widely acknowledged to have failed in the fight against COVID-19. That the Supreme Court should consider itself capable of supervising life and death situations in diverse States, in the same time frame as the concerned High Courts are doing, speaks either of supreme hubris, or of supreme indifference to horrendous human suffering”Likely to undermine the efforts of High Courts, Senior Advocate Sanjay HegdeSenior Advocate Sanjay Hegde said the the Supreme Court’s intervention is likely to undermine the efforts taken by the High Courts to hold the State Governments to account in respect of COVID management.”Those state governments may now feel emboldened to resist High Courts that seem determined to hold their Covid response to strict constitutional scrutiny”, he said.”As the deadly second wave of the pandemic rages and the virus goes into exponential growth, killing thousands of Indians, we must squarely ask, has the Supreme Court been complicit in the destruction of human life?”, he asked.High Court orders enjoy public faith : Senior Advocate Vivek TankhaSenior Advocate and Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha commented in twitter that while the Supreme Court could be in a better position to seek the response of the Union Government on the COVID issues on a national level, the High Courts are better equipped to monitor the matter at the micro level.He said that the Supreme Court lacks the time and details to deal the challenges facing the states. “High Court orders enjoy public faith”, he said. SC is best suited to seek replies fr UOI on #COVIDEmergency2021 including #OxygenEmergency nationally. State high courts should be allowed to monitor at micro level. #SupremeCourt has neither time nor details to deal with challenges facing states.HC orders enjoy public faith. 1/2— Vivek Tankha (@VTankha) April 22, 2021 High Courts should be trusted, Senior Advocate Ravindra Shrivastava Senior Advocate Ravindra Shrivastava said that in a federal structure, the High Courts are as competent are as competent and have jurisdiction as Supreme Court, perhaps wider . “They should be trusted”, he said in a tweet.In federal structure which we still retain in the constitution, High courts are as competent and have jurisdiction as Supreme Court , perhaps wider .

Information session details upcoming housing renovations

first_imgAn information session on new housing was held Tuesday night to elaborate on the email students received Jan. 13 detailing changes and renovations being made to housing on campus. The email said residents of Pangborn Hall will be moved to the new female dorm that’s currently under construction while Pangborn Hall will serve as a “swing dorm” for residents of halls under renovation during the school year. The new corresponding male dorm will be filled by application. Megan Valley | The Observer The Office of Student Affairs showcases pictures of what two newresidential halls opening in the fall of 2016 will look like.Heather Rakoczy Russell, associate vice president for residential life, said the addition of new dorms and renovation of existing ones is a continuation of the residential master plan that began in 2006.“That residential master plan was largely aimed at what we call ‘decanting,’ or un-crowding the undergraduate residence halls,” Rakoczy Russell said. “A room, for instance, that’s a triple might become a double, doubles become singles and so reducing the configurations. Some of you probably live where study room have been converted into student rooms, so we, to the extent that we could, reversed that.”Walsh and Badin Halls were the last halls on the list to be addressed by the 2006 plan, so they, along with Morrissey Hall, will be the first ones addressed with the new residential master plan. “For the next chapter, we think of what will be the next residential spirit of Notre Dame,” Rakoczy Russell said. “What that master residential plan is focused on is some of the same, which is finishing decanting and equalizing heating and plumbing, but also something beyond that, something that’s special. That something is something we’ve come to call the ‘model program.’”According to Rakoczy Russell, the model program consists of three categories: student rooms, common space and apartments for hall staff as well as priests and faculty in residence. These categories form the foundation for residents to “gather to share life” and offer a chance to “build Christian community.”The new dorms, currently under construction, are located east of Pasquerilla East Hall and Knott Hall.“These halls are complementary, but asymmetrical — we didn’t want the dorms to be carbon copies of each other,” Russell said. “We know our men and women’s dorms are different for many reasons, and we didn’t want them to be identical.”Some of the differences Rakoczy Russell cited included full kitchens on every floor of the women’s dorm, with kitchenettes on floors two, three and four in the men’s dorm, space for food sales in the men’s basement and six-person rooms in the men’s dorm, as well as another apartment on the fourth floor for a priest or faculty member. Both dorms will have singles, doubles and quads. Other features in the dorms, largely determined by student focus groups, include reading rooms on the first floor, a two-story open main lounge and unique rooms on the fourth floors, which Rakoczy Russell said was to encourage seniors to stay on campus. The chapels will also be highly visible from the outside.“Our chapels are a central part of building Christian community in the residence halls,” Rakoczy Russell said. “By situating the chapel this way, this is externally expressed. When you walk past these halls, the chapel will be seen as its own entity.” Rakoczy Russell said applicants for the men’s dorm and the remaining beds in the women’s dorm would not be based on merit, but rather on balancing demographics, including “major, hometown, home country, interests, race, ethnicity and nationality.” Applicants will also have the option to apply as a group as large as six — the application will allow for students to indicate whether they’re only interested in moving if the whole group is selected, under the assumption they must accept if the entire group is chosen. Current Pangborn residents may also have the opportunity to “pull in” students from other dorms. “We have a deep and abiding love for the residential system here at Notre Dame, and we’re so grateful to be part of this campus,” Vice President of Student Affairs Erin Hoffmann Harding said. “The motivation behind these changes is a reinvestment in the tradition we all hold so dear.” Tags: Construction, Housing, residence halls, Student Lifelast_img read more
