One says to the other, “Do you know how to drive this thing?”RW: Do you have any nicknames?GC: Big Guy, Ace. Not really – it’s more Big Nose and Hooter.RW: What’s your guilty pleasure?GC: I’ve got a sweet tooth, so chocolate.RW: Do you have any hidden talents?GC: I’m a really good dancer, but no one’s ever seen it. People do it for a living and I don’t want to make them feel bad.Lift buddy: Mila KunisRW: What last made you laugh?GC: Probably Dan Cole looking at bodybuilders on the internet. He’s trying to get tips.RW: And what’s the last thing that made you angry?GC: Being stuck behind a tractor on the way to training.RW: Who are the jokers at Leicester?GC: Julian Salvi and Thomas Waldrom are pretty funny, but they’re the butt of jokes; the jokees rather than jokers. Salvi keeps telling me he’s book smart, but he’s street stupid; he’s got no common sense.RW: Any practical jokes you can share?GC: A few years ago Lewis Moody and Seru Rabeni had a practical joke war that escalated and almost ended in hospitalisation. First Lewis took Seru’s socks, then Seru tied knots in all of Lewis’s clothes and Lewis threw Seru’s clothes in the bin. It continued going tit for tat in revenge. Luckily Seru’s in France now and Lewis has retired.RW: What are your bugbears? GC: Having to mow my lawn.

Farmer Brown: Chuter and Sam Vesty perform as part of Slo Progress in support of the Matt Hampson Trust GC: Probably my wife, but she’s not here so (actress) Mila Kunis. I think she’d be quite good with her hands so could open the lid at the top of the lift. I’d just want to get out of there because it would be hot and stuffy. RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?GC: Probably to have the power of laughter. (Cue laughing from RW). See, I’ve got it already.RW: What’s the silliest thing you’ve bought?GC: A swingball set. I used it and the ball broke off. It was rubbish – I was obviously too strong for it. It lasted 18 minutes – and I’d spent 17 minutes trying to get the thing in the floor. Thinking about it, I probably shouldn’t have set it up in the patio.RW: Who would be your three dream dinner-party guests?GC: Skinny people so I could eat all the food. I might invite a few politicans and poison them. Actually, could I have 300 people? Then I could invite the whole of the House of Commons, lock the door and burn the house down! Then I’d have all the food too.RW: Who’d play you in a film of your life?GC: Jonny Wilkinson. I’ve got a really good story to tell and I can’t think of anyone better to tell it. Otherwise Brad Pitt or the guy playing Alfie, Mickey Rourke.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard on the pitch?GC: I was playing for Saracens against Swansea in about ‘98 and there was a bit of a scuffle for some reason.

In the context of the heritage area in and around Balmain this extension to a small cottage demanded careful consideration of the philosophy behind the new intervention. Analysis of traditional built forms, usage patterns and development codes led to a strategy of providing a contemporary interpretation of the ever-decreasing volumes often evident in ad hoc additions of kitchens, laundries and outside toilets that were often made to these original structures.

The addition breathes new life into old under-used home with 95% of the existing building fabric retained. The roof design increases the rainwater harvesting capacity and the skylights foster a reliance on natural day lighting. The spaces are naturally ventilated and the roof has high performance insulation to minimise heat gain.

A group of radicals gathered Jan. 30 outside the Israeli Consulate in Chicago to do two things: celebrate the birthday of Ahed Tamimi and demand her release. Activists wore birthday hats, brought balloons and made noise with party kazoos. The action was called by Jewish Voice for Peace, the US Palestinian Community Network and American Muslims for Palestine. Various other groups supported the protest, including Workers World Chicago cadre. The action ended with everyone singing happy birthday to honor Ahed and signing a birthday card to be sent to her.WW photo: Thomas Tellgren-LengFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Aerial view of CIA headquarters, Langley, Va.Bulletin, Aug. 20: Some 100 additional former government officials, including ambassadors, U.S. attorneys and other officials, have asked to have their names added to the protest letter over Trump’s suspension of the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan. Donald Trump has provoked a revolt within the department of dirty tricks. The Central Intelligence Agency, which overlaps with the Pentagon officer corps, has issued a protest signed by over 70 former CIA officials denouncing the removal of the security status of former CIA chief John Brennan.Why would such a rogues’ gallery of assassins, torturers and spies suddenly unite on an unprecedented scale and become partisans of the “free speech” of John Brennan? Brennan denounced Trump as dangerous and unfit, and he described Trump as “drunk on power” after the president revoked his security clearance.The CIA is not an agency unto itself. It is deeply connected to the ruling class and its officialdom. Trump is acting more and more like an authoritarian ruler and making sections of the political and military establishment nervous.He is using the powers of the presidency to endanger imperialist interests and capitalist commercial interests without deliberation or consultation with the most powerful elements in capitalist society.The letter defending the “free speech” of former CIA director John Brennan can be seen as a message to Trump concerning his authoritarianism and his flouting of basic capitalist procedures of behavior established by custom and by law.This letter is also a defense of the agency itself. These 70 plus cutthroats consider themselves defenders of U.S. capitalism around the world. It is perhaps hard work setting up eavesdropping, torture sites, assassinations, kidnapping, etc. In fact, it can involve risks. (Although the higher-ups who order the dirty tricks do not expose themselves to personal risks at all.) These CIA criminals want to be treated with respect by the chief executive of U.S. imperialism, but Trump has demeaned them and the FBI repeatedly.The movement began with retired Navy Adm. William H. McRaven. He had been commander of the Joint Special Operations Command and oversaw the 2011 raid by Navy SEALs that “took out” Osama bin Laden and had his body dumped into the sea. McRaven is now a chancellor of the University of Texas system.In an op-ed for the Washington Post, McRaven denounced Trump for “McCarthyite tactics” and, as an act of solidarity with Brennan, asked that his own security clearance be taken away, too.To show how the CIA was primed for this attack, one of the signers told a Slate reporter on Aug. 17: “[T]he statement was circulated to all living ex-directors and deputy directors at noon on Thursday, with a request to reply by 6 that night.” All but four responded.Who is Brennan?According to Glenn Greenwald, writing in The Guardian on Jan. 7, 2013, President Barack Obama had to withdraw Brennan’s nomination for CIA director because of his record under the George W. Bush presidency of defending torture, as well as “rendition” (sending prisoners to third countries to be tortured at secret sites), electronic surveillance of civilians, targeted drone strikes in which the “targets” were unknown, etc.This quarrel amounts to one section of the state defending its right to speak against the president. The CIA, which has overthrown governments, destroyed movements and assassinated leaders is claiming First Amendment “free speech” rights for Brennan.Trump is screwing up the job of protecting U.S. imperialismBut more important, as defenders of U.S. capitalism, they feel that Trump is screwing up the job. In this, they speak for a large section of the military, the diplomatic corps and the capitalist brain trust.They fear that Trump is moving in an authoritarian direction — against them!When Trump abuses the masses of people with his racism, misogyny, anti-immigrant fanaticism and cruelty, there is no mention of the freedom to live, let alone to speak of the victims of racist police murder. They said not a word about the kidnapping of women and children at the border and the wholesale violation of domestic and international asylum laws. Nor did these butchers mention a thing about the innocent civilians killed by U.S.-made drones in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya and U.S. bombs in Yemen.They said nothing about the rights of Mumia Abu-Jamal and Leonard Peltier to be protected from unjust imprisonment, or the right of the incarcerated masses to be free of sadistic prison guard persecution.Trump’s grand military parade canceledIt is no accident that the same week this CIA protest letter was circulated, Trump’s Washington, D.C., grand military parade was cancelled. It had been an authoritarian move, characteristic of dictators. Trump claimed he wanted a parade like the one he saw in Paris during his visit to French President Emmanuel Macron last year.He forgot that the parade he saw was not for Macron but for Bastille Day, a national holiday which the French ruling class uses annually to pump up patriotic war sentiments.The fact that Trump wanted the Pentagon to back a parade aimed at glorifying himself was not greeted kindly among the brass, especially since he is trying to discipline them. Even though Trump has given them hundreds of billions of dollars in weapons and soldiers, they were not buying his extravagant appetite for pomp and ceremony dedicated to celebrating — Trump!Secretary of Defense James Mattis denied that the price tag for the parade would be $92 million, but all other government and department estimates were around that figure. Trump tried to place the blame for the cancellation on the majority African-American city. They rebutted his argument, showing that the D.C. part of the cost was miniscule.So Trump had to suffer a public humiliation at the hands of the brass. They don’t want to fan the flames of Trump’s authoritarianism at a time when he is wrecking their alliances in NATO and blocking them in their drive against Russia.Clearly, the capitalist state is deeply divided with differences over what the crisis of imperialism is and how to deal with it.Trump and Turkish crisisLooking at the crisis from Trump’s point of view, Turkey under President Recep Erdogan is turning into an enemy that has to be subdued. Turkey is holding a U.S. operative under house arrest. He is a pastor under suspicion of participating in the anti-Erdogan coup in 2016 and of being linked to Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric living in the Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania whom Erdogan accuses of engineering the coup.Regardless of the merits of the case, Trump reduces the issue to one of bringing a small, defiant government in Ankara to its knees, in order to let the world know how allegedly all-powerful Washington is.Looking at the same crisis from the Pentagon’s point of view, Trump has made an enemy of an important NATO ally that is desperately needed in the struggle for the military to regain some of its foothold in the Middle East. To complete the argument, the strategic Incirlik NATO air base is in Turkey. Trump has jeopardized all this in order to put Turkey “in its place.”Looking at it from the vantage point of Wall Street, Trump has doubled the tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum, escalating a tariff war when Turkey is in the middle of an economic crisis that is leading to a debt crisis. The Turkish ruling class is in debt to many European countries, especially Spain and Greece. As the value of the Turkish lira falls, its debt to Europe becomes more burdensome. Furthermore, by squeezing Turkey, Trump runs the risk of triggering defaults, both in Turkey and in continental Europe.Indeed, all sectors of the ruling class are watching Trump’s attack on Turkey with great trepidation.Trump and Saudi-Qatari conflictOr look at the crisis in the Gulf states, where Saudi Arabia is in a virtual war with Qatar. Saudi Arabia has blockaded Qatar because it is sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, a political rival to the Saudis in the Middle East.In this conflict, in spite of mediation efforts by Secretary of Defense Mattis, Trump has come down heavily on the side of the Saudis, especially after they wined and dined him, giving him the royal treatment on his early visit there.Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil, intervened last year to stop the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates from carrying out a joint invasion of Qatar. This may have been what led to his firing by Trump. (Al Jazeera, Aug. 1)Qatar is the site of a strategic U.S. air base, Al Udeid, which is home to the Air Force Central Command and some 10,000 American troops.Revolt of the spiesOn the international scale, the CIA and the Pentagon have significant overlap. A number of Pentagon generals and admirals have been appointed directors of the CIA. In any case, both agencies share the task of securing the U.S. imperialist empire, using different means.While they are always at war with one another over turf, resources, etc., they are both deeply concerned with how Trump’s policies affect them. Trump blames members of the CIA and the FBI for the Mueller investigation. In fact, Trump removed former CIA director Brennan’s security clearance because he was part of the “Russia witch hunt.”Trump’s military policy, which seeks to weaken if not to destroy NATO, strikes at the heart of U.S. military strength in Europe, up to and including on the borders of Russia.Trump is attacking the CIA and FBI as part of a “Russia witch hunt” while also attempting to weaken the U.S. strategic military alliance with NATO. These two policy conflicts alone could bring about a bloc from above to interfere with Trump’s poorly thought-out strategic view of how to ensure U.S. imperialist world domination.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The order came after the Court had on Tuesday already called for the copy of the postmortem along with the video which was recorded during the time of postmortem. “There are several questions that cross our minds most often and which are a little difficult to answer, but not impossible. One such question is, why postmortem of dead bodies is done during day and not at night?”, wondered Justice R. Pongiappan. The Single Judge explained that the answer is that the postmortem has to be done within the presence of sunlight, because the colour of the injury in tube light, CFL, LED’s and other artificial illumination appears to be purple rather than red, and “as per forensic science, there is no mention of purple injury and wound”. “However, in some emergencies and special conditions/occasions such as, terrorism or urgent events like disasters, forensic doctors probably perform postmortem during the night and evening time”, added the Court. Placing reliance on the 2019 judgment of the Madras High Court in V. Eswaran’s case and upon perusal of the Tamil Nadu Medical Code, the Single bench opined that if night postmortems are permitted, there may be a chance for miscarriage of justice and also it would lead to confusion over the cause of death. Further, the court asserted that after registering the case for the offence punishable under Section 176(1-A) of Cr.P.C., there was a “duty vested upon the investigating agency” to proceed with the investigation in correct path, “without showing any suspicious circumstance” in truthful manner for identifying the real accused. The case of the petitioner, the wife of the deceased, is that, on 22.07.2020 at 11.00 p.m., around five forest officials came to her house and asked about her husband. When the petitioner’s husband presented himself before them, without asking any question, they whisked him away in their official jeep for an enquiry to the Sivasailam Forest Office. They did not give any reason for such arresting at the time of taking her husband in their jeep. Subsequently, she came to know that it was a team headed by one Nellai Nayagam, who is the Forest Ranger,who took her husband for enquiry. After knowing the same, her son Natarajan and his brother-in-law viz., Arumugakumar went to Sivasailam Forest Office along with one Durai, in a car. While they were proceeding and approaching near the Sivasailam Bridge, they stopped their vehicle since a forest official’s vehicle was coming from the opposite direction. The said forest official’s vehicle carried the petitioner’s husband in unconscious state, who was laid in the middle of the forest officials in the vehicle. When at the time, her son touched his father, there was no movement on his body. One of the Forest Officers had directed her son and his brother-in-law to get into the forest official’s jeep and thereafter, the jeep proceeded to the Government Hospital, Kadayam, where her husband’s pulse was found to have stopped. Subsequently, her husband was taken to the Government Hospital, Tenkasi, at 01.00 a.m. [23.07.2020], where the Doctors declared that her husband had been brought dead. Suspecting that her husband was brutally tortured by the Forest Officials while he was in their custody, the petitioner, her family members and relatives refused to receive the body of the deceased. Thereafter, a complaint was registered on 23.03.2020, on the file of the Alwarkurichi Police Station, under Section 176(1)(A) of Cr.P.C., as a case of custodial death. After receipt of the F.I.R., the Judicial Magistrate came to the Hospital and conducted inquest. After examining the body of the deceased, the learned Judicial Magistrate noted 18 external injuries on the body and obtained signatures from the family members. It is the grievance of the petitioner that postmortem was conducted in the night hours in the absence of Dr.Selva Murugan, who is the Senior Professor and Head of the Department of Forensic Medicine in Tirunelveli Government Medical College Hospital. “Since the case is a sensitive custodial death, there was no urgency to conduct the postmortem during the night hours”, it is urged. Before the High Court, it was submitted on behalf of the petitioner that the autopsy was not conducted by the medical officers as per the guidelines of the Apex Court, as well as those stipulated by the National Human Rights Commission.Besides,it was argued that in this case postmortem was conducted by the Doctors in the night hours, which is against the guidelines given in the Medical Code and also against the judgments of various Courts. Per contra, the Public Prosecutor appearing for the State contended that after registering the case, the family members and the relatives of the deceased along with some political party resorted to sit in agitation at their Village. Hence, in order to avoid further assembling of crowd and creation of law and order problem, the Superintendent of Police, Tenkasi, sent a requisition letter to the District Collector, Tenkasi, to conduct the postmortem without any delay. Thereafter, the District Collector, sent a requisition letter to the Dean, Tirunelveli Medical College Hospital, Tirunelveli, for conducting an autopsy on the same day. “Insofar as the present case is concerned, the reason stated by the respondents that in order to avoid law and order problem, the autopsy was conducted in the night, is not having much substance”, concluded the Single Judge. In such circumstances, the Court was of the view that the postmortem alleged to have been conducted in the night hours, is not proper, and hence, the request of the petitioner for conducting re-postmortem “is a reasonable and acceptable one”. Noting the submission on behalf of the state that two Professors from Tirunelveli Medical College Hospital can be appointed as Doctors, who can perform the postmortem between the time gap of sunrise and sunset on the body of the petitioner’s husband, the bench also conceded to the request of the petitioner that one more Expert, who is also qualified can be allowed to perform the postmortem so that, the re-postmortem done will serve the purpose for which it is required. “Hence,Dr. Selvamurgan, Head of the Department, Faculty of Forensic Medicine, Tirunelveli Medical College, Tirunelveli and Dr.P.Prasanna, Associate Professor, Faculty of Forensic Medicine, Tirunelveli Medical College, Tirunelveli, are appointed and they are directed to conduct re-postmortem on the body of the petitioner’s husband along with another professional viz., Dr.Sudalaimuthu, Head of the Department, Faculty of Forensic Medicine, Thoothukudi Medical College, Thoothukudi”, directed the bench.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Story
