pred 2 urama in 50 minutami
As a partner of the law firm DMH Stallard, based in Brighton, East Sussex, my brother Tony Allen, who has died aged 76, helped to establish one of the country’s first multi-disciplinary planning practices, combining planning lawyers and chartered planners. He was the planning lawyer that handled the complex application by Brighton and Hove Albion FC for the development of the Amex Stadium, home to the Seagulls since 2011.Two years after departing the Goldstone Ground in 1997, their home for 100 years, the homeless Brighton & Hove Albion first appointed Tony to handle their planning application for the conversion of Withdean Athletics Stadium. Despite strong opposition from residents in the wealthy neighbourhood the application succeeded. Martin Perry, director and later CEO of the club, then hired Tony to work again on the application for the Amex Stadium, then Falmer Stadium. On learning of Tony’s death, Perry said: “The stadium is his legacy.” Continue reading... (The Guardian)

In the background, a man is taking a photo of his elderly in-laws posed against bright green foliage. He adjusts their legs and hands, pauses and then pushes them off the cliff.

As the brutality of drumlines and culling is exposed, ingenious new ideas are being trialled to protect humans from sharks – and vice versa In 2017, surf champion Kelly Slater responded on Instagram to the death of Alexandre Naussac, a bodyboarder who died after a shark attack: “Honestly, I won’t be popular for saying this but there needs to be a serious cull,” Slater wrote. “There is a clear imbalance happening in the ocean there … 20 attacks since 2011!?”Réunion Island, the French overseas department in the Indian Ocean where Naussac died, did indeed see 24 shark attacks between 2010 and 2019, 10 of which were fatal. If anywhere is a shark attack hotspot, it’s here: one-sixth of recorded fatal attacks globally from 2011–20016 happened in the island’s murky water, which appeals to bull sharks but makes it harder to spot them. Overfishing has been cited as another possible reason for the high incidence of attacks, as sharks move nearer land to find food. Continue reading... (The Guardian)
