Israel Folau’s multi-million dollar payout at risk if Rugby Australia folds

first_imgMonday Apr 6, 2020 Israel Folau’s multi-million dollar payout at risk if Rugby Australia folds Former Wallaby Israel Folau could yet lose out on his big money payout from Rugby Australia, should the organisation fold amidst the global Corona virus pandemic.ADVERTISEMENTReports state that Folau’s multi-million dollar payout would take a major hit if the sports governing body in Australia were forced into insolvency.The former fullback ace was sacked last year over his homophobic social media posts, including one stating hell awaits homosexuals.The two parties agreed to an out-of-court settlement in December after the Folau sued RA (Rugby Australia) for religious discrimination. While the terms weren’t made public, it’s understood to be around $3m, which is the remainder of his four year contract.According to The Australian, the settlement is being paid off in instalments with those payments at risk should RA go under. Should RA be forced to declare itself insolvent, Folau would become an unsecured creditor and depending on its assets, he’d likely be paid out only a few cents in the dollar.Folau has been playing rugby league with French-based club Catalans Dragons in the Super League, although competition is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.WATCH:5 times the most Australian man in Australia, Nick Cummins, broke the internet Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

VDA is a residential building whose apartments make up a carved and irregular volume. The shape is its more explicit difference and, structurally, is the result of some small lateral swings designed as overlapping diagonals. In addition to proposing an alternative to the sameness of the local residential vertical architecture, the project recovers elements that have been forgotten by the real estate market, such as louvers, the apartment-house, large balconies, yard and splitting levels, bringing back the space and the typical warmth of the houses.Save this picture!SectionEd. VDA bears similarities with a previous Vazio S/A project, Ed. Montevideo 285, such as the choice not to integrate recreation area and amenities (a fact which enables condominium’s lower costs), by presenting all-different apartments (assuming the fact that this diversity reflects the diversity of the residents) and its organic staggered implementation, which enabled several apartments with yard and gardens. The ceiling of some units is higher (3.2m), that is, the section was used as a mechanism to get space; and all bedrooms have balconies.Save this picture!© Gabriel CastroSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiMore than an architectural project, the building is part of the office attitude both practical and experimental, which was possible thanks to our dual responsibility as architects and developers. In the present scenario in the country, dominated by products almost exclusively conceived by construction companies and real estate agents, we believe that the participation of architects in other aspects embedded in the construction industry is critical. What makes up the bulk of the urban fabric are houses and apartments, therefore our cities have unfortunately been produced by the most reactionary and conservative sectors that make up this industry.Save this picture!© Gabriel CastroProject gallerySee allShow lessGaggenau / Alventosa Morell ArquitectesSelected Projects8 Creative Ways to Integrate Parking into Residential DesignArticlesProject locationAddress:Belo Horizonte, Belo Horizonte – State of Minas Gerais, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

This is the largest amount ever received, and will be reinvested in research.As a result, more money was available for research than at almost any time in the charity’s history.  Over the year, £587m was spent on charitable activities, including £546m on cancer research, and £42m on information and influencing.Investment has continued in four key areas to drive progress: prevention, early detection and diagnosis, developing new treatments, and making treatments more effective. In the past year, Cancer Research UK has invested in its international Grand Challenge research award, funding three more teams.  Between them, they will receive up to £60 million over the next five years.Michelle Mitchell, Chief Executive at Cancer Research UK said:“I am truly humbled by our supporters’ generosity, which has enabled us to spend more on our charitable work than almost any time in our history.  I feel privileged that in my first year as CEO we are in a strong financial position, given the wider challenges and uncertainties that we face in the economy.  We are well poised to take on these challenges, but we must never be complacent, as there is so much more to do.“Today, as the UK population grows and ages, we know that the disease will cast a shadow over more of us than ever before.  There’s never been more opportunity – nor more urgency – to translate research into tangible benefits for people with cancer.  But to do this, we must work together with other organisations, in the UK and globally, and make sure every penny is spent wisely.  It is only by doing this, and staying focused on our goals, that we will see 3 in 4 people surviving cancer for 10 years or more by 2034. We’re making good progress, but we still have so much more work to do, together, to beat cancer.”Further key achievements are outlined in Cancer Research UK’s annual report and accounts, published on 18 July, and include three new international Grand Challenge teams awarded £20m each over the next five years, to solve long-standing mysteries in cancer research such as how the body’s microbiome is involved in cancer, and launching the Cancer Research UK City of London Centre, a £14m investment to create a world-leading cancer therapeutics research hub.Overall, for every pound of income from donations, investments and royalties, 82p was available for the charity’s work to beat cancer.

Request for presidential pardon for jailed journalist Patrick Palata

first_img February 16, 2021 Find out more Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo to go further Organisation On the occasion of the 52nd anniversary of the independence of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Reporters Without Borders and its local partner organization, Journalist in Danger, have written to President Joseph Kabila seeking a presidential pardon for the journalist Patrick Palata, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence.Palata, a journalist with the commercial TV station Canal Congo Télévision which broadcasts from Matadi, capital of Bas-Congo province, has been held in Ndolo military prison in Kinshasa for almost two years.“Without going into the details of the case, in which the journalist and his lawyers have always maintained his innocence, Reporters Without Borders and Journalist in Danger are seeking clemency on your part and request that, by virtue of the powers invested in you under the constitution, you accord him a pardon and commute his sentence,” the two organizations said in the letter, sent on 27 June and delivered the following day to the president’s office in Kinshasa, the Palais de la Nation. As the Democratic Republic of Congo celebrates its independence anniversary on 30 June, and prepares to host the 14th summit of the International Organization of the Francophonie four months later, the two NGOs believe the release of Palata would send a strong signal the French-speaking world and would demonstrate President Joseph Kabila’s desire to respect human rights and ensure that journalists are protected in their work. On 8 April this year, the Bas-Congo military court rejected an appeal against 20-year sentences imposed by the Matadi garrison military tribunal on Palata and 49 other people for organizing a rebel movement.
