Boot boysHats off to Stephen Myler and Andy Goode, who both broke through the 200 points barrier for this Aviva Premiership season this weekend. Myler’s haul of 20 against Saracens took him to a total of 210, while Goode is just behind him in second spot in the table with 207.In third place is Gareth Steenson with 180. His chances have been limited in recent months as Henry Slade has often been picked ahead of him and when he came off the bench yesterday he missed a pretty simple penalty which was crucial to Exeter Chiefs as they chased a losing bonus point.However, Steenson showed great composure and courage to line up and land a drop goal with the last kick of the match and make sure Wasps only won 36-29. The battle for the play-off spots in the Aviva Premiership and the Guinness Pro12 brought out the best in a lot of players, but the worst in a few. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Super-Scarlet: Liam Williams celebrates his try on Judgement Day III. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency) Centres of attentionEngland centres Luther Burrell and Jonathan Joseph both produced outstanding moments of brilliance this weekend. Burrell made a superb, arcing break through the Saracens’ defence then offloaded out of the tackle to Samu Manoa, who just had to stride over the line for a 19th-minute try for Northampton Saints.The previous evening, for Bath against London Irish, Joseph attacked from half-way, passed out of the back of his hand to Leroy Houston who made more ground then found Francois Louw and the openside shipped the ball on to Joseph, who bet three defenders with a clever chip through and scored a cracking try. He wasn’t the only Bath player to shine in a 43-18 win, during which they made 559 metres in attack and beat 32 defenders. Star turnLiam Williams was the Man of the Match as the Scarlets beat the Dragons 29-10 in the second part of Judgement Day III. The Scarlets full-back created a try for Scott Williams with a brilliant chip and run from his own half and a deft pass off the floor, and he scored a try of his own, darting round the back of a ruck. He made 161 metres with 17 carries and caused the Dragons all kinds of problems. Making a point: Joe Simpson celebrates his wonder-try for Wasps v the Chiefs. (Photo: Getty Images) Clanger from ClancyDragons fans weren’t best pleased with referee George Clancy after he allowed a try from Scarlets hooker Ken Owens to stand, even though Owens had run into the ref on his way to the line.The laws of rugby state that “if the ball or the ball carrier touches the referee and neither team gains an advantage, play continues. If either team gains an advantage in the field of play, the referee orders a scrum”. On this occasion the Scarlets gained an advantage as at least one potential tackler was impeded by Clancy. As the Scarlets won the game 29-10 it could be argued that the try wasn’t decisive, but coming as it did when the Dragons were 10-3 up, it did help turn the tide against them. The SaintsSmokin’ JoeOn a high-scoring weekend of Aviva Premiership action, Wasps scrum-half Joe Simpson produced a contender for Try of the Season in their 36-29 win over Exeter Chiefs. With both clubs chasing a top four finish, the game was in the balance with Wasps 29-26 up with five minutes to go.Chiefs scrum-half Will Chudley hoisted a high kick into the Wasps’ half but Simpson beat the two chasing players to the ball, darted to the blindside, then back round to the left and used a combination of footwork and pace to break through the defence. He had just enough momentum to slide over the line when the tackle from Tom James came in and the ten-point lead the conversion brought was too much for Exeter to overhaul. Burns hot to the lastGloucester’s record of being unbeaten at Kingsholm in 2015 looked set to end as Newcastle Falcons led 40-37 with the clock in red time, but 20-year-old fly-half Billy Burns became the home side’s hero when he sprinted up the left and dived through three would-be tacklers to score the winning try.The 20-year-old, making only his sixth Premiership start, had missed a sitter of a penalty early on but bounced back to create a try for Billy Twelvetrees and to score a total of 22 points in a game in which Gloucester came back from 40-23 down with 11 minutes to play to win 42-40.Winner, winner: Billy Burns dives over the line, to Henry Purdy’s surprise (left). (Photo: Getty Images) Biggar and betterWales fly-half Dan Biggar produced a masterclass of all-round play to help the Ospreys beat Cardiff Blues 31-23 in the Guinness Pro12. Biggar scored 16 points at the Millennium Stadium, including the first try of the second half, when he capitalised on a strong break from Alun Wyn Jones.A darting run from the No 10 through the middle of the park just before half-time gave the Ospreys their first points when Dan Evans finished off the try, after the Blues had taken a 9-0 lead. Biggar also created Tom Grabham’s try with a fine pass. Strong in defence, a superb goal-kicker and a great reader of the game, Biggar is on top of his form right now.Foot down: Dan Biggar on his way to a try for the Ospreys. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency) Judged a successWell done to the Welsh Rugby Union, the four Welsh regions and the 52,762 fans who packed into the Millennium Stadium, for making Judgement Day III such a success.A total of 83 points were scored in the two matches as the Osprey beat the Blues and the Scarlets defeated the Dragons. The double-header is beginning to turn into a major event in the Wales rugby calendar and it deserves to go from strength to strength.As the Cardiff Blues full-back Rhys Patchell said: “It was a fantastic, fantastic occasion. Long may Judgement Day continue.” Psychological blowBristol beat their main Greene King IPA Championship rivals Worcester Warriors on the last weekend of the regular season and so, arguably, go into the promotion play-offs with a slight psychological advantage.The 30-26 win at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium ended the unbeaten home record of the Midlands club and ensure Bristol topped the table with 21 wins out of 22 games. But, having lost to London Welsh in the play-off final last season after topping the table, the South West side know there is all still to play for. Super ShaneA final “well done” goes to Shane Williams, for running the London Marathon in three hours, 36 minutes and 52 seconds. The former Wales wing even retained his sense of humour through the pain, telling BBC TV’s Gabby Logan at the finish line: “I was in the lead for about 60 metres!” Falling short: Billy Vunipola loses the ball short of the try-line. (Photo: Action Images).Billy’s blunderWhen Billy Vunipola charged down a Northampton kick just outside the Saints’ 22, he created a clear-cut try-scoring opportunity for himself. He raced after the loose ball and gathered it safely, but when he fell to the ground just short of the line and bounced forward, the ball slipped out of his hands and away, under his body. His despairing reaction immediately gave away the fact he had not scored the try and his mistake cost Saracens and probably seven points which could have made all the difference to the final result. Kit chaosThere was embarrassment for someone in the Northampton Saints or Saracens backroom staff after the two teams turned up with clashing kits for Saturday’s match. The Saints, who were the home side at Stadium MK, decided to wear special St George’s Day kit for the day. Their red shorts and red and white tops might have looked natty on paper, but as Saracens’ away kit is all-white, there was something of a problem, which, for some reason, had not been anticipated in advance.Saracens were forced to get their black shirts rushed from their base in St Albans to Milton Keynes in time for the second half. It was an amateurish mix-up – the kind of breakdown in communication which shouldn’t really happen.All white: George Kruis, Christian Day and their kits clashing. (Photo: Getty Images) Ulster’s star: Iain Henderson heads for the try-line during the win over Leinster. (Photo: Inpho)Playing a blinderGlasgow, Munster, the Ospreys and Ulster all guaranteed themselves a top-four finish in the Guinness Pro12 with their wins this weekend and Ulster ensured Leinster failed to make the play-offs for the first time since they were introduced in 2009, as they defeated the Dubliners 26-10.Leading the way for Ulster was blindside Iain Henderson, who sprinted onto a pass from the back of a ruck to score his team’s first points, after they had gone 10-0 down. At the centre of everything that was good about Ulster’s game in attack and defence, Henderson was deservedly named Man of the Match. The SinnersExile pushed the boundariesA moment of madness from London Welsh No 8 Chris Hala’ufia resulted in him being sent off during their match against Leicester. Referee Tim Wigglesworth was about to wield the yellow card for an illegal tackle on Laurence Pearce when TV replays showed Hala’ufia then grabbing the prone Tiger by the back of the neck and pushing him face first into the floor.Wigglesworth promptly got out his red card instead and Welsh had to play the last 25 minutes with 14 men.Hala’ufia had an eventful afternoon as earlier in the game he tackled a streaker who thought the sun-kissed afternoon was ideal for a bit of naked exercise. He probably had second thoughts after the Tongan tackled him.

Over 100 residents of Kavod, a senior residence in Denver, protested congressional efforts to cut health care programs under the Affordable Care Act, including Medicaid, and the threats to Medicare. Organized by the Tenant Council Political Action Committee, this demonstration on July 19 also opposed attacks on federal assistance for housing.Kavod Senior Living is a residence for low-income seniors and people with disabilities, which is supported by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Most of its 400 residents receive rental assistance and are on Medicaid and/or Medicare programs. These individuals are able to be independent because of the many services provided to them, such as dinners, housekeeping, safety measures and more. Everyone is assigned a social worker. There are activities, including outings, organized by a trip director, and on-site health services.The threatened cuts to medical care programs and HUD will drastically affect Kavod residents. Services will be cut and rents raised. This is alarming those who live in this housing, and that is why they came out to protest.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Intimacy of marriage, including the choice of partner, which individual make, on whether or not to marry and whom to marry are the aspects which exclusively lies outside the control of the State or the Society.” The Uttarakhand High Court recently made significant remarks with respect to the rights of adult homosexual couples to choose their life partner and to live with each other, without any pressure from their parents or the society. “Consensual cohabitation between two adults of the same sex cannot in our understanding be illegal far or less a crime because its a fundamental right which is being guaranteed to the person under article 21 of the Constitution of India, which inheres within its ambit and it is wide enough in its amplitude to protect an inherent right of self determination with regards to one’s identity and freedom of choice with regards to the sexual orientation of choice of the partner,” Justice Sharad Kumar Sharma observed. The remarks were made by the court while hearing a habeas corpus writ petition, filed by one Madhu Bala, against illegal confinement of her alleged partner Meenakshi, by Meenakshi’s mother and brother. Though the petition came to be dismissed on account of Meenakshi’s reluctance to continue her alleged relationship with the Petitioner however, the court made significant remarks with respect to rights of homosexual couples, where they want to live together. “Even if the parties, who are living together though they are belonging to the same gender; they are not competent to enter into a wedlock, but still they have got a right to live together even outside the wedlock. It would further be not out of pretext to mention that a live-in relationship has now being recognized by the legislature itself, which has found its place under the provisions of protection of women from Domestic Violence Act,” the bench held. The bench further remarked that while deciding cases such as the instant one, the court should not engage itself in social mores. It held that right to liberty and freedom of choice are “constitutional values” that cannot be abridged. “…Social values and morals they do have their space, but they are not above the constitutional guarantee of freedom assigned to a citizen of a country. This freedom is both a constitutional as well as a human right. Hence, the said freedom and the exercise of jurisdiction in a writ courts should not transgress into an area of determining the suitability of a partner to a marital life, that decision exclusively rests with the individual themselves that the State, society or even the court cannot intrude into the domain.” The court added, “[It] is the strength provided by our constitution, which lies in its acceptance of plurality and diversity of the culture. Intimacy of marriage, including the choice of partner, which individual make, on whether or not to marry and whom to marry are the aspects which exclusively lies outside the control of the State or the Society.” Reliance was placed on the following observations made by the Supreme Court in Soni Gerry v. Gerry Douglas, AIR 2018 SC 346, “it needs no special emphasis to state that attaining the age of majority in an individual’s life has its own significance. He or she is entitled to make his or her choice. The court can, so long as the choice remains, assume the role of parnis patriae. The daughter is entitled to enjoy her freedom as the law permits and the courts shall not assume the role of a super guardian being moved by any kind of sentiments of the mother or egotism of the father. We say so without any reservations.” Thereby the court concluded that in cases such as the instant one, it has to proceed “exclusively” on the basis of the detenu’s statement. “The court as an upholder of the constitutional freedom has to safeguard that such a relationship where there is a choice exclusively vested with a major person has to be honoured by the courts depending upon the statements recorded by the individual before the court. xxx In such type of circumstances it is exclusively the statement recorded of the detenue, who is said to be wrongfully/illegaly confined and who is said to be having a consensual or a lesbian relationship with the petitioner, which becomes of a prime importance, to be considered while parting with the judgment,” the court said. In the present case, the detenu expressed her unwillingness to live with the Petitioner and submitted that the Respondents, i.e., her mother and brother did not put any pressure upon her. The court dismissed the petition thus, “In view of the aforesaid statements and affidavit on record, this habeas corpus petition is dismissed; because of the statement recorded by the detenue herself before this Court today, that she is not under pressure or a wrongful confinement of respondent nos. 4 and 5. Thus, there could not be any writ of habeas corpus.”Petitioner was represented by Advocate Abhijay Negi; State was represented by Deputy Advocate General Sandeep Tandon with Mamta Joshi and Private Respondents by Advocate Jayvardhan Kandpal.
