0 Have your say Scotland’s legal chiefs are facing calls to review flagship laws introduced to tackle so-called “upskirting” amid concerns that loopholes in the legislation are behind “very low” prosecution rates. The Lord Advocate is being urged to step in after it emerged barely three convictions a year have been secured since the laws came into force with “limitations” in Scotland. Campaigners claim images that are shared on social media for “group bonding” purposes or sold for financial gain, to a magazine or newspaper, can escape prosecution. One teaching union has warned the laws introduced in Scotland at start of the decade are not working and want mobile phones banned in schools because of the growing problem of pupils using them to take inappropriate photographs. Official figures obtained by the Liberal Democrats show there have never been more than five prosecutions or convictions for … [Read more...] about Scotland’s legal chiefs face calls to review flagship laws on ‘upskirting’

Referees were slammed after missing this seemingly obvious knock-on, but a closer look shows why they got it exactly right. Broncos winger Jamayne Isaako appeared to knock the ball forward while attempting to catch a kick against the Bulldogs on Friday night, but referees allowed play to continue. Commentators were gobsmacked, slamming the ‘shocking’ call. “That’s awful, that’s a knock-on,” Corey Parker fumed in commentary. Bulldogs coach Dean Pay was also furious about that and a number of other calls after his side suffered a last-gasp 22-20 loss. However referees boss Bernie Sutton explained why the call was correct on Friday. “I’m very comfortable with the play-on call there,” Sutton said. “Having had the opportunity to review it, you see when Jamayne touches the ball, he’s at least a metre to a metre-and-a-half in front of the 10m line. The ball practically lands on the 10m line.” A closer inspection at … [Read more...] about Why ‘shocking’ knock-on call was actually correct

Brunching out... If the words “pizza brunch” don’t excite you, then I’m afraid we can never be friends. Forget “cellar door”; I don’t think there are two more beautiful words in the English language. Aside from its euphonic charm, it’s also the main draw at Radici, Francesco Mazzei’s laid-back and slightly cavernous Islington restaurant. The premise is simple: pizza, if you go down that route, along with eggs, pancakes and the option to add on bottomless prosecco for £15 per person. Read more By Chloe brunch review: Vegans need junk food too Funnily enough, it’s the other brunch dishes we enjoy even more than the pizza. “Tuscany meets Puglia” is Eggs in Purgatory’s burlier cousin, boasting a beautifully thick and rich pappa al pomodoro, on top of which sits two white ovoids. Cut into one of them: a poached egg. And the other?

Although I have to confess that the subject is not one in which I am by any means well-read, Darrin T. Stevens and Edwin Lanfranco’s recent study entitled ‘Buonamico the Botanist’ in the latest issue of the Journal of the Maltese Studies (29) provided me with some basic knowledge of the subject. The article not only makes for interesting reading but also throws light on the fact that a Maltese polymath whose live stretched the mid-decades of the 17th century was an authority on the subject is perhaps one of the earliest Maltese botanists.
