BHA sets out provisional programme for racing restart

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland BHA sets out provisional programme for racing restart The British Horseracing Association (BHA) has released a provisional racing schedule ahead of the sport’s planned resumption, with the first action since the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) enforced shut-down to take place over the weekend of 23-24 May. The British Horseracing Association (BHA) has released a provisional racing schedule ahead of the sport’s planned resumption, with the first action since the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) enforced shut-down to take place over the weekend of 23-24 May.Racing has been suspended since 18 March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the BHA last month said it hoped to recommence activities in May, subject to government-ordered measures.The BHA and its Flat Pattern Committee have worked with racecourses in recent weeks to establish the best way to return to action when it is deemed safe to do so and has now published a provisional fixture list for racing.According to the BHA, this will prioritise the Classics and other flagship races for horses most likely to provide a “future fundamental role on behalf of the breed”.“Under our best-case scenario planning, and subject to advice from public health authorities, the aim is to rescue a number of lost pattern and listed events from the early part of the spring and stage them during the second half of May and early June if possible,” the BHA added.“Our ambition would be to stage these flat pattern and listed races […] should the timeline and circumstances of recommencement allow. Any other pattern or listed races that had previously been scheduled to take place before the end of May will be abandoned and not rescheduled.”The provisional programme suggests that racing would return over the weekend of 23-24 May, with races listed including Pavilion, Nell Gwyn, Craven, Greenham, Fred Darling, Brigadier Gerard, Conqueror, Pinnacle, Sagaro, Aston Park and ParadiseFor the weekend of 30-31 May, the BHA has proposed Lockinge, Palace House, Yorkshire Cup, Dante, Musidora, Cecil Frail, Spring Trophy and Middleton take place.In addition, for the first weekend of June, the BHA has put forward plans for the 2000 Guineas, 1000 Guineas, Coronation Cup, Pretty Polly, Newmarket and the Bronte Cup all to run.However, the BHA warned that the races may not be staged at their traditional venues and may need to be hosted at alternative racecourses. The BHA also said it is likely that racing will be restricted to British-trained runners only, initially at least until 30 May, in line with similar approaches taken by other international racing jurisdictions.Publication of the proposed programme comes after the BHA was criticised for its decision to extend the suspension of racing, which had been due to expire at the end of April, into May.According to newspaper reports, BHA chairman Annamarie Phelps received a “cache of emails” from trainers unhappy about the BHA’s approach, primarily focusing on the financial impact that the suspension would have on the industry. Some also reportedly called for BHA chief executive Nick Rust to resign over the organisation’s handling of the crisis.Last week, the New Zealand Racing Industry Transition Agency (RITA) set out its transitional calendar for the remainder of the 2019-20 horse racing season, and also announced that greyhound racing will return this week.Harness racing will resume on 29 May, with thoroughbred racing to follow on 3 July. However, the revised calendar will feature racing at a reduced number of tracks to ensure racing is run in line with government measures designed to stop the spread of coronavirus. 4th May 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Race Track and Racino Topics: Sports betting Strategy Horse racing Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Horse racing Email Addresslast_img read more

Court verdict on cyber-dissident Huang Qi again postponed

It noted that the new delay, announced by the first intermediate people’s court of Chengdu (in the southwestern province of Sichuan) far exceeded Chinese legal provisions.Huang Qi, owner and webmaster of the Internet site, has been imprisoned since June 2000 and his trial ended in August 2001His wife Zeng Li, who has never been allowed to visit him since his arrest, told Reporters Without Borders she was very worried about his health. “I no longer have any word about his conditions of detention. I have had no letter from him, nothing written concerning him except the warrant for his arrest.” She said he needed medication but that the prison authorities had never provided him with it.Huang’s family waited outside the court today in anticipation of seeing the 39-year-old accused and hearing the verdict. After two hours, they learned it had again been postponed. The case had already been sent back to the prosecutor twice, apparently for lack of evidence. His wife said the legal time limits had never been observed right from the beginning of the case.Huang was arrested on 3 June 2000 – the day before the 11th anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre – and was charged under articles 103 and 105 of the criminal code. He was accused of posting on his website articles about the massacre written by dissidents living abroad. He had set up the site to put out news about people who had disappeared in China.Huang Qi was jailed in July 2000 at Chendu’s detention centre no.1. Former cellmates said he was beaten regularly and denied medicine he needed.At least 36 cyber-dissidents are in prison in China for posting material on the Internet that the Chinese Communist Party considers “subversive.”Reporters Without Borders recalls that the cyberdissident Huang Qi is sponsored by the French websites and L’ and by the Belgian ones, and the newspaper Coup d’œil vers l’avenir.

Reporters Without Borders urges the Libyan authorities to deploy whatever resources are needed to ensure that these abuses are independently and impartially investigated and those responsible are brought to justice. They must not go unpunished.Journalists have a crucial role to play in the new Libya, especially during elections, but they have been hit badly by the current climate of violence and lawlessness. Threats, arbitrary detention, intimidation and armed attacks are increasingly being used to prevent media personnel from doing the their job. Some journalists have even fled the country, fearing for their safety and the safety of their families.In one of the latest attacks, Al-Assima satellite TV station owner Jumaa Al-Osta’s home in the Tripoli suburb of Gurji was bombed at around 5 a.m. on 20 February, causing major damage, injuring a journalist and even shaking nearby homes.It seems the explosive charge was deposited in a bag outside the house by two men who fled in a car with no licence plate. Hassan Hussein, an Al-Assima journalist living in an annex, was badly hurt by the blast, sustaining back and leg injuries. His nose was also broken. Al-Osta and his children were at home at the time.This was the third case of violence against Al-Assima and its personnel in 10 days. Rocket-propelled grenades were previously fired at the TV station, which is located in the same neighbourhood as Al-Osta’s home and which has been the target of threats and attacks ever since it opened.Al-Osta said he had received many threatening messages saying that his home would be the next target and that his children could also be kidnapped.

The award was presented in Boston on July 17, 2014. Michael Burch Architects is internationally recognized for its expertise in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. Their work was featured in Diane Keaton’s book California Romantica, The California Casa and most recently, Dreaming Small, all by Rizzoli International Press. The romance and drama of the firm’s work, whether in new construction or renovations/additions, captures the imagination and was described by Aaron Betsky in Architecture Magazine as “breathtaking in its sophistication and beauty.” They are currently presenting their work at the 14th International Venice Architecture Biennale which runs from 7 June through 22 November 2014.The Alta Canyada project, was featured in the July issue of Traditional Building magazine, was a complete renovation and 2,000 square-foot expansion of a 1925 home designed by Golden Age Los Angeles architect Arthur Kelly. Best known for designing what is now the “Playboy Mansion,” Kelly lived in the Alta Canyada house in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Kelly also designed the Harvard-Westlake school campus in Los Angeles. The school was one of a number of projects on which Kelly collaborated with contractor Walter Burch, the grandfather of firm principal Michael Burch. Kelly also designed the Burch family home in Hancock Park during the 1920s.The Alta Canyada project entailed doubling the size of Arthur Kelly’s original house and reconfiguring the site while meticulously respecting the style of the 1920’s design. It included extensive use of Tunisian tile and stenciling. The bedroom wing of the house was demolished, while a second story and basement were added. The project also included a newly designed pool and gardens. The project won an AIA Award in 2012. While Michael Burch Architects often collaborates with landscape architects, interior designers and other design professionals, the scope of work on this project encompassed all aspects of the interior and exterior design. This approach allowed for seamless integration of all aspects of the design into one cohesive composition while keeping true to the design’s original intent.As described by the Palladio Awards Program, the award “honors outstanding achievement in traditional design” and recognizes designers “whose work enhances the beauty and humane qualities of the built environment through creative interpretation or adaptation of design principles developed through 2,500 years of the Western architectural tradition.”The Palladio Awards are the first and only national award for projects that show excellence in traditional design. This is the first Palladio awarded to Michael Burch Architects. It’s only the second time a California architectural firm has won the prize.For more information on Michael Burch Architects, please visit their website at To learn more about the Palladio Awards visit Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Late Miocene volcanic sequences in northern Victoria Land, Antarctica: products of glaciovolcanic eruptions under different thermal regimes

first_imgLate Miocene (c. 13-5 Ma) volcanic sequences of the Hallett Volcanic Province (HVP) crop out along > 250 km of western Ross Sea coast in northern Victoria Land. Eight primary volcanic and six sedimentary lithofacies have been identified, and they are organised into at least five different sequence architectures as a consequence of different combinations of eruptive and/or depositional conditions. The volcanoes were erupted in association with a Miocene glacial cover and the sequences are overwhelmingly glaciovolcanic. The commonest and most representative are products of mafic aa lava-fed deltas, a type of glaciovolcanic sequence that has not been described before. It is distinguished by (1) a subaerially emplaced relatively thin caprock of aa lavas lying on and passing down-dip into (2) a thicker association of chaotic to crudely bedded hyaloclastite breccias, water-chilled lava sheets and irregular lava masses, collectively called lobe-hyaloclastite. A second distinctive sequence type present is characterised by water-cooled lavas and associated sedimentary lithofacies (diamictite (probably glacigenic) and fluvial sands and gravels) similar to some mafic glaciovolcanic sheet-like sequences (see Smellie, Earth-Science Reviews, 74, 241-268, 2008), but including (for the first time) examples of likely sheet-like sequences with felsic compositions. Other sequence types in the HVP are minor and include tuff cones, cinder cones and a single ice-marginal lacustrine sequence. The glacial thermal regime varied from polar, characterised by sequences lacking glacial erosion, glacigenic sediments or evidence for free water, to temperate or sub-polar for sequences in which all of these features are conspicuously developed.last_img read more

Hybrid letting agency claims tenant creditworthiness ‘first’ after deal with Experian

first_imgHybrid lettings agency No Agent is to begin reporting its tenant’s payment histories to partner credit reference agency Experian, and is claiming to be the first agent with national reach to do so.The London-based online hybrid agency says it wants to help the tenants who live in the properties it manages to improve their chances of getting on the property ladder and create a level playing credit score playing field for both tenants and home owners.No Agent will be reporting its tenants ‘one-time’ rent payment though Experian’s Rental Exchange initiative, which enables larger agents, landlords and social housing providers to record tenants’ payments in large volumes.“Rent is usually the largest regular payment in a household and should be the main indicator of creditworthiness,” says No Agent CEO Calum Brannan (pictured, left).“Yet tenants paying rent regularly don’t see this reflected on their credit scores in the same way homeowners do with their mortgage payments.“It’s making it even harder for them to get on the ladder and it’s simply not fair. So we are partnering with Experian to change things for Generation Rent.”Experian’s Rental Exchange system doesn’t require the permission of landlords to pass on their tenants’ payment records to Experian, as it is No Agent who will receiving the rent from the tenant, although it is likely that the tenants will have to give the thumbs-up for the rent payments to be passed on.“Our landlords are getting an extra assurance that their tenants pay in full and on time,” says Calum.Several other creditworthiness initiatives have been launched recently including CreditBuilder, an online service that enables agents to copy No Agent’s initiative by reporting tenants’ rental payments on an agent’s behalf. The other main operator in this field, CreditLadder, has been going two years and recently revealed it had processed £10m in rental payment payments.Read more about creditworthiness and rental payments.No Agent Calum Branan creditworthiness The Rental Exchange Experian January 18, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
