Why one of the world's top restaurants will not stop buying the best foie gras | Andoni Luis Aduriz 14.12.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Andoni Luis Aduriz, head chef at the Mugaritz restaurant near San Sebastian, justifies his decision to support local farmers On Thursday afternoon, without any official notification, we found out through the press that the members of the Spanish branch of Animal Equality have been bombarding media outlets with a brash statement revealing their great triumph: Mugaritz condemned . [ Mugaritz, an award-winning restaurant near San Sebastian, Spain, was fined for serving foie gras from force-fed ducks, bought from Momotegi, a local, unlicensed farm, which Mugaritz supports because it believes such farms produce the best foie gras. ] The statement Animal Equality released doesn't actually mention what the sanction against us is, but from what I can gather it seems to be a minor penalty, of which we'll know the full details once we receive the official notification. This news has been accompanied by an incredible social media storm and an exaggerated response from dozens of media bodies. ...

Uzaif to attend school next month 14.12.2012 deccanherald.com
Mohammed Uzaif, the boy who was assaulted by his mathematics teacher at St Mary's Public School, will start attending school in January, according to his father, Mohammed Fayaz. Uzaif is undergoing treatment right now.

Parents and relatives of the boy visited the school on Thursday and the authorities informed them that the teacher has been terminated from service. Another school which is facing charges of corporal punishment, Daisy Nursery in Whitefield, has remained closed.

The caretaker had branded six students with hot iron. James Ambat, a senior member of the school management said, "The school remained closed because of a riot-like situation in the surrounding areas surrounding the school.

People even threatened to burn down the school." He said that the parents of children stuyding in the play school were keen on holding a meeting with the people in the locality.

Uefa misses open goal in response to Serbian football's racism | Owen Gibson 14.12.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
European game's ruling body seems to place more store on protecting its sponsors than dealing with a serial recalcitrant It could be said to fail the pants test. The £80,000 sanction handed down to Nicklas Bendtner for breaking ambush marketing rules and displaying his Paddy Power underpants to the world during last summer's European Championship has become a convenient popular yardstick with which to measure Uefa's priorities. Again the perception will be that loud and intimidatory monkey chants tumbling down from the stands and a violent mêlée among players and coaches is somehow less important to Uefa than protecting its sponsors. Anton Ferdinand, the QPR defender who unwittingly found himself at the heart of the torrid convulsions over racism in the English game over the past year, was quick to pick up on the comparison. He quickly surmised that it was a "joke" that the Serbian FA was hit with a £65,000 fine and the requirement to play one match behind closed doors by Uefa's ...

Egypt constitution: Carter Centre will not monitor referendum 14.12.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
NGO says it will not have full oversight of referendum as Morsi opponents decry breakneck pace of changes The Carter Centre, former US president Jimmy Carter's human rights NGO, said on Thursday it would not deploy monitors for Egypt's constitutional referendum, amid deepening polarisation over the process of adopting a document guiding how the country is to be governed following its 2011 revolution. The centre was the main international group monitoring earlier Egyptian votes, and its absence increases the likelihood that, if the constitution backed by President Mohamed Morsi and his Islamist allies passes, the rushed process leading to the Saturday referendum will further undermine the document's legitimacy. It also comes as opposition and rights groups warn that the breakneck pace at which the vote and changes to the procedure for accrediting election monitors are being organised may lead to fraud in the vote. Egypt was plunged into political crisis three weeks ago when Morsi issued ...

Copa Sudamericana final abandoned due to violence 13.12.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
Sao Paulo awarded title as Argentine Tigre refuse to play amid on-pitch fighting and claims security officials drew guns Sao Paulo were awarded the Copa Sudamericana title on Wednesday when violent scenes on and off the pitch prompted Argentine club Tigre to refuse to play the second half of the second leg of the final. Tigre officials said their players were attacked in the dressing room area by security officials during the half-time break, following confrontations on the pitch at the end of the first half. Tigre coach Nestor Gorosito came to the field area briefly during the half and told reporters "they pulled two revolvers", he said, referring to unspecified security officials. "We're not going to play any more." Referee Enrique Osses of Chile awarded the victory to Sao Paulo after waiting about 30 minutes for Tigre to retake the field. Sao Paulo led 2-0 after the first half with goals from Lucas and Osvaldo. The first leg of the final last week in Buenos Aires ended 0-0. ...
