Too Much, Too Soon: Chris Boyd on using young stars at the right time

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Too Much, Too Soon: Chris Boyd on using young stars at the right timeIn our special report on Too Much, Too Soon in rugby we looked into why the physical and mental demands of the game can overwhelm some unlucky young players taking their first tentative steps into elite rugby. But within that feature we also made a point of celebrating some of those who ensure that young players are looked after.Chris Boys is one such coach who is celebrated for the way he gives young players a chance at the very top level, but manages their load – and expectations. So in the original report he wrote us a panel on his approach….Boss: Chris Boyd (Getty Images)“If you’ve got a long-term view of youth your players will be in a better space,” writes Northampton Saints director of rugby Boyd of how they integrate starlets.“They also need to know that you trust and have faith in them, physically and mentally. Three or four times we’ve given guys opportunities and they’ve not actually played well but it’s a great part of their learning. It’s individual development, as well as performance. “When I arrived I made a decision to have a coaching group of young, English, high-potential talents. That’s slid into the playing group. I’m not naive enough to miss competency in that group, but Owen Franks can bring on young props like Ehren Painter and Paul Hill. But they can’t get impatient.“The biggest issue is fear of failure. I remember when Painter played Clermont in the Challenge Cup and got dusted by their prop. He was pretty dark but in years to come he’ll do the same to someone else. So it was a great day for learning.”This panel first appeared in Rugby World magazine in March.

The principle of secrecy of ballots is an important postulate of constitutional democracy whose aim is the achievement of this goal”, observed a bench comprising Justices N V Ramana, Sanjiv Khanna and Krishna Murari in the case Laxmi Singh and others vs Rekha Singh and others.The matter arose out a judgment of the Allahabad High Court which had set aside the minutes of the Prayagraj Zila Panchayat meeting dated 25th October 2018 adopting a no-confidence motion against the Panchayat Adhyaksha, on the ground that some of the members had violated the rule of secrecy of ballot. The HC held that disclosure of vote during the non-confidence motion was in violation of the statutory scheme governing the same in the State and would affect the purity of elections. The appellants in the SC contended that the principle of secrecy of ballots was not an absolute principle, and that voluntary waiver of the privilege was permissible. They referred to Section 94 of the Representation of Peoples Act to state that voter can voluntarily chose to waive the secrecy of ballot and argued that the HC has wrongly held that the voluntary waiver principle could not apply to the case in hand with respect to the members of the Zila Panchayat voting on a no confidence motion.The SC observed that the reasoning of the HC with respect to applicability of voluntary waiver of secrecy and its impact of free and fair elections in the instant case was “somewhat lacking”.Yet, based on the consent of both parties, the SC ordered that a re-voting of the original motion be held by way of secret ballot with the District Judge, Allahabad himself or his nominee Additional District Judge, Allahabad, acting as the Presiding Officer on a date and time to be fixed by the District Judge within a period of two months from the date of the judgment.”This would, in our opinion, be a just and fair direction in the factual matrix of the present case given the respective contentions and stand of the parties”, the bench said.Click here to download judgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

It was contended that the said provision is discriminatory and violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of India, inasmuch as there are many Central Government undertakings which have not been subjected to any such computation of income tax and are enjoying exemption. The High Court, however, dismissed the said writ petition without deciding the validity of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act by observing that the issue of raising a challenge to the vires of the provision at this stage need not be entertained as the matter is still sub judice before the Income Tax Authority.The Apex Court bench, while disposing the appeal filed by the Corporation, observed that the High Court ought to have decided the issue with respect to the challenge to the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act on merits. The bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, R. Subhash Reddy and MR Shah observed:”When the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act were challenged, which can be decided by the High Court alone in exercise of powers under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, the High Court ought to have decided the issue with regard to vires of Section 40(a)(iib) on merits, irrespective of the fact whether the matter was sub judice before the Income Tax Authority. Vires of a relevant provision goes to the root of the matter. The High Court has observed that the issue of raising a challenge to the vires of the provision at this stage need not be entertained, as the matter is still sub judice before the Income Tax Authority, even though it is open to the aggrieved party to question the same at the appropriate moment. Once the show cause notice was issued by the assessing officer calling upon the appellant – assessee to show cause why the VAT expenditure is not allowable as deduction in accordance with Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act, while computing the income of the appellant, it can be said that the cause of action has arisen for the appellant to challenge the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act and the appellant may not have to wait till the assessment proceedings before the Income Tax Authority are finalised. The stage at which the appellant approached the High Court and challenged the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act can be said to be an appropriate moment. Therefore, the High Court ought to have decided the issue with respect to the challenge to the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act on merits. The High Court has failed to exercise the powers vested in it under Article 226 of the Constitution of India by not deciding the writ petition on merits and not deciding the challenge to the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act on merits.”Allowing the appeal, the bench remanded the case to the High Court to decide the writ petition on merits and decide the question with respect to challenge to the vires of Section 40(a)(iib) of the Income Tax Act on merits.Case: M/s Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation Ltd. vs. Union of India [CIVIL APPEAL NO. 3821 OF 2020] Coram: Justices Ashok Bhushan, R.

Ohio secretary of state stresses ‘election night results are never final’

first_imgda-kuk/iStockBy QUINN SCANLAN, ABC News(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — With just one day until Election Day, the question of when Americans will know the results of the 2020 election is top of mind, as President Trump insists results must be in on Tuesday night.But Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose stressed that “election night results are never final” on the ABC News “Powerhouse Politics” podcast.“This idea that election night is sort of this grand reality TV show where everybody gets to go to bed on election night knowing who won and who lost is just a flawed construct that’s not the way it works,” LaRose said during an interview Monday with podcast co-hosts ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and Political Director Rick Klein.Trump has repeatedly claimed that the winner of the election must be known on election night, saying during a rally in Iowa Sunday, “We should know the result of the election on November 3rd, the evening of November 3rd. That’s the way it’s been and that’s the way it should be.”While Americans have become accustomed to knowing the winner on election night, LaRose said that this year in particular, due to the influx in absentee ballots, the ability to “make a pretty safe assumption about who’s going to win or who’s going to lose” may not be possible this year, not just in Ohio, but across the country.He added, “The real deadline that we’re focused on is getting that certification done of the final statewide results by the 28th of November, and then seating our electoral college on the 14th of December … because that’s that’s the way the process plays out.”LaRose touted Ohio’s system for processing absentee ballots ahead of the big day, noting that usually the ‘very first’ ballots counted after polls close are the absentee and in person early votes.“Ohio has a really good system compared to other states. If you look at some of our neighboring states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, even up in Wisconsin, in those states and others they can’t even begin processing absentee ballots, they can’t cut the envelopes open until Election Day. In Ohio, we’ve already been doing that for four weeks,” he said.In Michigan, clerks in municipalities with populations of at least 25,000 people were granted some relief for this, allowed to start the processing for a 10-hour period Monday, but overall, the three “Blue Wall” states that President Donald Trump won in 2016 are the most disadvantage among the battleground states this cycle when it comes to processing mail ballots quickly.LaRose said that county election officials have been able to open returned mail ballots and check voters’ registration and signatures, which also gives officials more time to contact voters and give them an opportunity to cure their ballots if there is an issue.“On election night, the very first ballots counted in Ohio are almost always the absentee and early votes … so right at 7:30 when the polls close, the boards of elections can begin the tabulation process,” he said.LaRose told podcast co-hosts Karl and Klein that when election results start coming at 8 p.m. or 8:15 p.m., it’s largely going to be these votes, and then later in the night, more of the Election Day vote will come in.The secretary said this year, his office will be highlighting the number of outstanding absentee ballots at the top of their election night reporting website. This key figure could help with calling races, as absentee ballots aren’t due until Nov. 13 under Ohio state law, as long as they are postmarked by Monday, but officials will know for certain how many potential ballots could still be returned.LaRose predicted strong turnout, and said this election could be the first time the state has 6 million voters participate in an election.“We’ve seen fully a tripling in the previous numbers for early voting and a doubling in the number of absentee votes so at this point right now… we’ve seen over 3.1 million absentee ballot applications received over 2.1 million ballots cast and again those numbers are a few days old,” the secretary said. “I think that it’s entirely possible that by the time the polls open at 6:30 tomorrow morning that more than half the ballots will have been already cast in Ohio.”In 2016, 5.6 million voters, or 71% of registered voters, turned out in Ohio, which LaRose said was “very high turnout.”Indirectly countering the president’s oft-repeated talking points, LaRose said that while there were some issues with slow third-party vendors, which he said was “disappointing” and “shouldn’t have happened,” he’s seen “nothing as far as fraudulent activity” with absentee ballots.“As it relates to any kind of fraud related to absentee voting, that’s exceedingly rare. It happens, you know, occasionally and when it does happen we take it seriously,” the secretary said, noting that people have been referred for prosecution in the past.As coronavirus cases are increasing again across the county, and the total daily diagnoses setting new records, LaRose talked about the safety precautions in place and what would happen if a voter shows up to the polls without a mask.He said his office has “fielded massive quantities of personal protective equipment,” including masks, sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and face shields. There will be masks available to give to voters at every polling place.If a voter shows up to vote Tuesday without a mask, the person will be offered a mask. If he or she refuses to wear the mask, they will be given the option to vote curbside, where a bipartisan team of sworn election officials will bring a ballot for them to fill out, and then after the voter is done, that ballot gets put into an envelope and take it into the polling place to be scanned.But if the voter refuses to do both of these things, they cannot be denied their right to vote, so the elections officials will do their best to maintain social distancing, and create “ample space” for the maskless voter to cast their vote. The machine will be wiped down following that.LaRose said what they hope to avoid escalating the situation.“Folks that are coming to intentionally make a scene by voting without a mask or whatever else, we don’t want to give them the attention they’re looking for. It’s kind of a nothing to see here we’re gonna get you voted and get you out the door, in a safe and distance way,” he said.He added, “Really the responsible thing to do is to wear your mask or to take the one that we offer.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

NH veterans nursing home issues SOS over COVID-19 outbreak

first_imgDaisy-Daisy/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(MANCHESTER, N.H.) — A New Hampshire nursing home for war veterans is sending out an “all-hands-on-deck” plea for help amid a ballooning COVID-19 outbreak that has severely depleted its staff and killed nearly two dozen residents in less than a month.Officials at the New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton issued the SOS over the weekend, saying it desperately needs licensed nurses, nursing assistants and a host of non-medical workers to help with a staffing crunch left by the virus.“We need more people to step up and help our veterans get through this,” Margaret LaBrecque, commandant of the facility, told ABC affiliate WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire.LaBrecque said that as of Saturday, 35 of the facility’s 342 staff members have been placed in quarantine after testing positive for the virus. An additional 13 part-time workers have also been sidelined by the contagion, LaBrecque said.Patients at the facility about 18 miles north of Concord include veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.Nursing homes have been especially devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. More than 12,000 facilities nationwide have reported COVID-19 among their residents and staff, which has led to more than 72,000 deaths and more than 354,000 infections, according to the latest data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.Last month, the Illinois Veterans Home at LaSalle reported an outbreak that killed 27 residents and infected 105 others and 95 employees. An outbreak in April at the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke, Massachusetts, claimed the lives of more than 80 patients and prompted a criminal investigation over alleged mismanagement of the crisis by the facility’s administrators. Two leaders at the Soldiers’ Home have pleaded not guilty to charges of caretaker neglect and causing or permitting serious bodily injury to an elder or disabled person.LaBrecque said the New Hampshire Veterans Home had been left fairly unscathed by the first wave of the coronavirus, as restrictions on visitors were implemented and sanitation efforts were increased. But since Nov. 10, 21 patients there have died from the contagion, 13 in just the past week, LaBrecque said. Another 45 patients have tested positive for the virus.While the source of the outbreak is unclear, LaBrecque said it’s likely it was unknowingly brought into the facility by a staff member.“We started to prepare for this the day the governor shut our doors,” LaBrecque said, referring to restrictions on visitors. “We knew it’s not a matter of if it’s coming in, it was when. Unfortunately, ‘when’ was Nov. 10.”LaBrecque said the home needs eight registered nurses, two licensed practical nurses and 18 licensed nursing assistants to help fill the void. She said the facility also has immediate needs for laundry, maintenance and food service workers, as well as security officers and recreational assistants.“This is an all-hands-on-deck response,” LaBrecque said. “We are shifting resources and making all the necessary changes to achieve our mission, including calling in federal resources to assist, but some positions remain to be filled.”She said staffers and temporary employees brought in have volunteered to work six days a week, and some have been putting in 12-hour shifts a day.New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said as soon as he heard of the outbreak, he requested help from the Department of Veterans Affairs, which dispatched an infection control team along with five additional medical personnel to the facility to review best practices and keep the home running.Sununu praised the job LaBrecque and her staff have done under dire circumstances.“The commandant and her team are doing a phenomenal job and should be applauded for their incredible efforts during this very challenging time,” Sununu said in a statement.But state Senate Minority Leader Donna Soucy and state Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, both Democrats from Manchester, sent a letter to the Republican governor last week expressing concerns over the outbreak at the home and accused Sununu of not doing enough.In their letter, Soucy and D’Allesandro called on Sununu to quickly implement a strategy to curb the outbreak, address the facility’s staffing shortage and boost its supply of personal protective equipment.“The staff at the New Hampshire Veterans Home are risking their health and safety simply to do their jobs and care for our veterans,” the state senators wrote. “This is unacceptable.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
