The remaining gaps would comprise five ‘initial guests’ who would be invited to participate.The league has been touted to start as early as 2021, effectively replacing the Uefa Champions League and existing outside the jurisdiction of Uefa.Infantino, according to a Sportspromedia, has told reporters that the revitalised competition would be “the answer to any attempt to break away from the leagues” because it would “generate much more revenues for the clubs but also much more revenues for solidarity”.“If the price to pay is to give proper revenues to a club participating in a Club World Cup but this allows us to give US$1 million to Haiti who has nothing, or to Mongolia who has three time zones but only two football pitches, well then we should be I think doing that,” Sportspromedia has reported the FIFA chief as saying.“In light of the current circumstances in the region we all know about, I would be even happier if this could happen and football can build bridges,” Infantino said.Infantino added that an expanded tournament would still have to be played within a 28-day timeframe. Fifa is sending specialists to Doha this week to look into the feasibility of changing the format of the tournament, with a final decision expected to be made at a council meeting in Miami in March.Also Read: FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019: 150,000 tickets sold since launch Football Virat Kohli completes 10 years in Test Cricket: 10 things you should know about India skipper- check out Previous articleIndia out of BWF Junior championship despite impressive Lakshya showNext articleBlast Pro Series owners announce €10 million in fresh funding Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

THE CLIENTS A Colombian couple living abroad (in Spain) for many years decided to come back to the country as they felt security and economic conditions had changed with the latest elected president. He and his wife wanted to establish their family and business here again and that meant not only buying an apartment and opening business, but also to have a place to spend weekend and holidays with the family, a long established tradition among Colombians.

Their initial request was on two subjects: Save this picture!THE TASK Help them find the right place for their holiday house on a well inhabited and secure site with specific natural conditions like warm weather, nice views, not flat, among others… To design a house for them and the kids with a modern, contemporary look that could remind them of their life in Europe and that could preserve and actual look in time as well as a house that, in some way could have a reminiscent idea of traditional colonial houses -this last idea appeared in the end after the selection of the site. Save this picture!On the last idea, it was clear that I had to preserve a traditional organization of the house “inwards”, I mean, thinking more on the life of the home than on the social life. Here, one could perceive the idea of Islamic influenced Spanish architecture that was brought here to America in the colonising period. On the modern contemporary look, the idea was to work with pure volumes with character of their own that by operating them through intersections, the complete volume and program of the house were created.

Campaigning is a crucial part of promoting and protecting open societies, democracy, transparency and human rights. The rights to freedom of assembly and association and to freedom of expression and information are protected by the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights and other national and international instruments. Campaigning is a legitimate and necessary activity for civil society, including registered charities and organisations that receive public funds. It tackles the root causes of problems and delivers social change. All people and organisations have a right to campaign. Campaigning seeks to challenge injustices, hold the powerful to account and deliver social change. In this way, campaigning is political but campaigning by registered charities and non-partisan civil society organisations is never party political. Campaigning is carried out by a range of different people and groups, using a variety of tools and tactics to make change happen. Campaigners should be able to choose the most appropriate and effective means, including protest – a right enshrined in international law. Campaigning requires a supportive and enabling legal, regulatory and political environment. Democratic values, processes and institutions are the foundation of an enabling environment, fostering debate and conducive to a vibrant civil society. “The pandemic has had a huge impact on families in poverty and has posed many new challenges for our campaigning. However, by embracing digital technology and new ways of working we have been able to bring together huge numbers of organisations across the campaigning sector to collaborate quickly on shared priorities. The report calls for the government to create a new framework that better protects the right to campaign, based on a number of key principles, which are: “Our campaign against the upcoming £20 cut to Universal Credit shows how invaluable cross-sector collaboration is, as well as how important it is to have a consistent, well-framed narrative to secure political and media cut-through. The past year has exposed and exacerbated existing inequalities and has demonstrated that governments can take bold action to protect people on low incomes from harm. As we emerge from this pandemic, the sector will have a key role in shining a spotlight on longstanding injustices. We now need to work together to raise the ambitions of the public and politicians so we can shape a future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 “From protecting millions of jobs in the UK to advocating for fairer access to vaccines globally, campaigners have ensured a more compassionate, inclusive and effective pandemic response. The pandemic revealed the power and benefit of campaigning. The political environment, as well as restrictive legal and regulations, continues to create barriers for campaigners seeking to deliver change for the people and issues they care about. As we enter the second year of the pandemic, we need to reset the relationship between campaigners and decision-makers and take steps to better protect the right to campaign.” It reveals that during the initial weeks of the pandemic, campaigners were able to cut through and significantly influence government policy by building cross-party consensus, moving campaigning tactics online, and engaging with the public to highlight people’s stories of job losses or homelessness. Advertisement Melanie May | 18 May 2021 | News Examples include the campaign for furlough, which led to the creation of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, and campaigning that sought to highlight the difficulties faced by private renters, which resulted in tens of thousands of people being protected from eviction. 727 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Commenting on their experiences, and also calling for action, Lucy Bannister, Policy Campaigns Manager at Joseph Rowntree Foundation said: Tagged with: campaigning Report co-author Rowan Popplewell, Civic Space Policy Manager at Bond, said: Campaigning during coronavirus: Lessons from UK civil society by Bond, Quakers in Britain, ACEVO, NCVO and Unlock Democracy, with the Civil Society Voice (CSV) network, found that plans to place new restrictions on the right to protest and stricter limits on access to judicial review will make it harder for campaigners to voice concerns and hold the government to account.

The Frogs play in the Lincoln regional in Nebraska on Friday against the Wichita State Shockers. A win will set up a contest on Saturday with the winner of the No. 1 seed Nebraska and New Hampshire matchup.TCU boasts the No. 1 strength of schedule in the country and was ranked inside the top-40 in RPI all season long. “It was a tough schedule and we had a lot of seniors coming back,” director of volleyball Jill Kramer said. The Frogs ended the regular season with three straight five-set victories for a 14-12 overall record and a 7-9 record in Big 12 play.“I think our non-conference schedule helped prepare us for Big 12 play,” Kramer said. “And I think Big 12 play helped us prepare for the tournament.”The Horned Frogs have out-blocked their opponents in 20 matches this year. This year, they defeated No. 8 North Carolina. Last season, it was No. 2 Texas. TCU played 15 matches this season against top-50 RPI opponents and had a non-conference RPI that was ranked No. 8 nationally.Wichita State is the Missouri Valley Conference champion. This is the Shockers 10th appearance in the NCAA tournament and second straight just like the Frogs. The Shockers won their conference tournament for the fourth time. They posted a 7-6 record this year against NCAA tournament teams. Senior middle blocker Natalie Gower has been key to the Frogs success this year. Gower was named to the All-Big 12 first team — last year she was named to the All-Big 12 second team. She’s the third Horned Frog to earn Big 12 postseason honors in two straight seasons.“She [Gower] did a great job blocking for us last year in our defensive system as a middle-blocker, and her blocking numbers were great, but she knew she had to improve the consistency of her offensive numbers to have a shot because numbers matter, and she became consistent every day,” Kramer said. “She got to a point where we didn’t have to tell her what to do, and it’s really cool that she’s made such big growth.”First serve against Wichita State is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

Worldwide, 2017 was the least deadly year for media personnel in 14 years but this is far from being the case for 2018. In addition to the 56 journalists whose deaths were clearly linked to their work, RSF is in the process of investigating more than 10 other cases.“As we prepare to unveil the 2018 memorial stone at the memorial park for slain journalists in Bayeux, in northern France, we must pay tribute to all these men and women who have been killed while reporting in war zones” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. The alarming number of deaths is a reminder of the urgent need to provide journalists with more protection. RSF is calling for the creation of a Special Representative of the United Nations secretary-general. Our initiative is backed by a growing number of governments, and by 130 media outlets, organizations and journalists’ unions around the world.” Afghanistan is currently the world’s deadliest country for journalists, with 13 killed so far this year, ten of them on a single day, 30 April. Nine, including AFP photographer Sha Marai Fezi, were killed in a double-bombing in Kabul regarded as the deadliest attack on the media since the Taliban government fell in 2001. The tenth victim, BBC reporter Ahmad Shah, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in eastern Khost province a few hours later.In all, 29 journalists (52% of the total) have been killed in war zones since the start of the year. After Afghanistan, Yemen has been the deadliest country, with five killed. When not being killed in air strikes, journalists die as a result of mistreatment in prison in this Middle Eastern country, which is ranked 167th out of 180 in the World Press Freedom Index.This was the case with Anwar al Rakan, a Yemeni journalist who was held by the Houthis for nearly a year. He died on 2 June just days after being released in an already terminal condition. His family said he was ravaged by starvation, torture and disease when released. Photos of his emaciated body circulated on social networks. The Houthis continue to detain at least ten journalists and one citizen-journalist. But they could be holding many more because they provide no information.In Africa, two journalists have been killed in Somalia. One, Abdirisag Qasim Iman, was fatally shot at a police checkpoint in July. The other, Abdirizak Said Osman, was stabbed to death as he left his radio station in September. In the Central African Republic, a great deal of mystery still surrounds the deaths of three Russian journalists – Orkhan Dzhemal, Kirill Radchenko and Alexander Rastorguyev – who were slain by unidentified gunmen in July while investigating the presence of mercenaries working for Wagner, a Russian private military company that also operates in Syria. Their fixer, known as “Martin,” has yet to be identified and has mysteriously disappeared. The Russian and CAR authorities who are investigating this triple murder have to provide any information that would help to identify those responsible.A total of six professional journalists have been killed since the start of the year in Pakistan, Palestine and Syria – two in each country. In Syria’s case, this is less than last year, when nine professional journalists were killed in connection with the war. But the dangers continue to grow for Syrian citizen-journalists covering the conflict. Six citizen-journalists and one media worker were killed in Syria during the first nine months of 2018.
