A ROBUST recovery in the fortunes of London’s hotel industry is set to continue apace over the next year, according to new research out today.The average room rate at hotels within the capital is set to rise seven per cent in 2010 to £124, according to the latest PricewaterhouseCoopers UK Hotels Forecast, boosted by the economic upturn and a resurgence in international and business demand. The rise is due to buoy revenue per available room (Revpar, a key industry measure) by almost nine per cent.Room rates will rise further to £130 next year as the recovery takes hold, PwC predicts.“London’s hotel scene continues to bask in the glory of its recovery,” said Robert Milburn, PwC’s UK hospitality and leisure leader. “Much will depend on the wider economy, confidence and continued favourable exchange rates, but we expect London to maintain this pace.” Thursday 16 September 2010 8:05 pm Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Share whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Resurgence of business demand boosts recovery for London hotels More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com Tags: NULL

Half-time: 29-3Attendance: 920 Coach Phil GreeningLondon Welsh maintained their 100 per cent start to the season at Old Deer Park with a bonus-point win over Doncaster Knights – the club’s third consecutive bonus-point win at home.The proverbial game of two halves saw Welsh have the four-try bonus-point in the bag before half-time, thanks to tries from Dominic Shabbo (2), Ben Sevenson and Marc Breeze, only for the Exiles to be left clinging on at the end as Doncaster fought back.The sinbinning of Shabbo coupled with Stephen McColl’s try turned the momentum in the away side’s favour, and tries from Dougie Flockhart and Petaia Gidlow ensured a losing bonus-point for Doncaster, and more than a few anxious moments for the Exiles late on.After a rather subdued opening few minutes, Welsh then manufactured a superb opening try from first phase possession. From clean lineout ball on half-way, Hudson Tonga’uiha’s dummy run and Gordon Ross’ miss pass created space for Errie Claassens and the full back fed Dom Shabbo to beat Flockhart on the outside and touch down.Ross couldn’t add the conversion and Doncaster looked like they might respond after a great scrum by the Knights’ pack won a penalty and Tristan Roberts took play into the Exiles’ half. However, McColl’s grubber for Matt Williams to chase was overcooked and Claassens was able to marshal the ball dead.Welsh rode their luck when Stevenson and Claassens both failed to clear their lines, but the luck was clearly with the home side as the ball broke lose in the Doncaster midfield and Shabbo was on hand to collect the gift, sprint clear and score under the posts. Ross converted.Flockhart was then caught offside as he intercepted Ross’ pass and the former Scotland international extended the Welsh lead to 15-0 with a sweet strike from just inside the Knights’ half.Roberts immediately cancelled out Ross’ penalty, though, as Welsh were then penalised at a maul and the Doncaster fly half found the centre of the posts to open the visitor’s account.But Welsh extended their lead further ten minutes later with a moment of magic from scrum half Stevenson. Tongu’uiha made the initial break before off loading to Stevenson in support, and he cleverly chipped last man McColl before gathering and diving over the line. Ross added the extras and the home side led 22-3.Welsh were now rampant, threatening to carve Doncaster open at every opportunity and Simon Whatling danced his way into the Doncaster 22, only for Martin Purdy to be bundled into touch.Welsh were not to be denied, however, and they wrapped up the bonus-point three minutes before the break as Chris Hallam was yellow carded and Ross drilled the ball into the corner.Purdy secured lineout possession and the Welsh pack drove their way over the line, with hooker Breeze the man to emerge with the ball. Ross converted to see the Exiles take a commanding 29-3 lead into the break.Doncaster escaped without further punishment on the scoreboard before Hallam returned to the fray, and when he did the scrum half was just in time to see Williams’ slicing run take the Knights as close as they’d been to the Welsh try line. But Welsh weren’t out of the woods and quick ball saw Roberts’ miss pass pick out McColl to barge through two Welsh tacklers and score in the corner. Roberts added an excellent conversion from the touchline.Welsh were struggling to recapture their first half spark, only fleetingly showing glimpses of the rugby which had seen them dominate the opening 40, and ultimately they need did.A come back looked beyond Doncaster until Shabbo was sinbinned for ten minutes. The Knights took swift advantage of their numerical superiority and McColl drove up to line before Steve Boden supplied the final scoring pass for Flockhart to dive over in the corner.Roberts converted and suddenly there was an air of anxiety around Old Deer Park, but the Doncaster fly half then twice spurned the chance to crank it up a few more notches when he missed two kickable penalties.Welsh were unable to hold on to possession and build anything resembling a concerted period of pressure, while at the other end Ed Jackson took play to within touching distance of the Welsh line. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Exiles, though, emerged unscathed having been pinned in their own corner as Nick Runciman made a crucial interception and it looked as if the home side had finally seen the game out.But there was still time for Roberts to push a late penalty into the corner and for Gidlow to force his way over to secure a losing bonus-point for the visitors – something that looked unlikely in the extreme at half-time.London Welsh scorers:Tries: Shabbo (2), Stevenson, Breeze; Cons: Ross (3); Pen: Ross.Doncaster Knights scorers:Tries: McColl, Flockhart, Gidlow; Cons: Roberts (3); Pen: Roberts.London Welsh: Errie Claassens, Dom Shabbo, Hudson Tonga’uiha, Simon Whatling, Josh Drauniniu, Gordon Ross, Ben Stevenson, Michael Holford, Marc Breeze, Shawn Pittman, Martin Pudy, Matt Corker, Dan Williams, Lee Beach, Ben Russell.Replacements: Lorne Ward for Holford (34min), Nick Runciman for Stevenson (46min), Vili Ma’asi for Breeze (47min), Epi Taione for Russell (51min), Aled Thomas for Ross (58min), Liam Gibson for Whatling (60min), Mike Powell for Purdy (61min).Yellow card: Dom Shabbo (54min).Doncaster Knights: Stephen McColl, Dougie Flockhart, Chris Briers, Petaia Gidlow, Matty Williams, Tristan Roberts, Chris Hallam, Dan Frazier, Steve Boden, Michael Cusack, Matt Challinor, Glen Kenworthy, Andy Boyde, Neil Cochrane ©, Ed Jackson.Replacements: Stuart Corsar for Frazier, Dom Parsons for Kenworthy, Zack Farivarz for Boyde, Oliver Goss for Briers, Lewis Thiede for Cusack.Replacement not used: Peter Jericevich, Tom Doughty.Yellow card: Chris Hallam (36min).Officials: Ref – Michael Tutty; TJ’s Terry Hall & Darryl Chapman.

However, the court has refused his prayer of postponement of the exam which is scheduled for tomorrow and the day after (i.e. March 13 & 14).The bench of Justices Anup Jairam Bhambhani and Sidharth Mridul refused to defer the exams citing potential harassment to the candidates who would have already arrived in the city for the exam, and the fact that the last examination of this order had taken place in 2017 – thereby putting the entire recruitment process at risk.Delhi High Court starts hearing plea seeking postponement of Delhi Higher Judicial Services Exam until vaccination of Covid-19 is administered to all lawyers.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) March 12, 2021Sr. Adv. Sidharth Luthra appearing for the petitioner pointed out that he is a 45-year old lawyer, whose past medical history classifies as comorbidity, putting him at a higher risk in respect of Covid-19. Sr. Adv. Sidharth Luthra was briefed by Advocate Kushal Kumar. He further argued that due to the age limit for the exam being 45, the petitioner would not be able to appear for it next year, and that it also may be considered that he was one of the top-scorers in the Prelims.Luthra also pointed out that there were at least 25 other similarly placed candidates who were in favor of postponement of the examination on account of Covid-19. However, the Court refused the postponement, stating that just like the Petitioner was seeking an equitable remedy, equities also needed to be balanced – as the 282 candidates appearing for the exam and the exam conducting authority would have made all requisite arrangements for the same.The Bench directed the High Court administration to provide a separate room for him to participate in the examination.”Based on the concession made on behalf of the latter, we direct the examination branch to accommodate the petitioner in a separate room in the High Court premises, in which he may write the subject examinations in isolation, subject of course to an invigilator being present in the room”, said the Court.Apart from this, the Court further directed that the petitioner be provided necessary medical assistance, if any, as may be required in view of his stated medical condition.Counsel for the High Court, Advocate Ankit Jain informed the Court that several precautionary measures were put in place by the High Court for the safe conduct of the examination.The Court has also directed the High Court administration to file its response to the petition challenging the Delhi Higher Judicial Service Main Examination, 2019 notice.The next date of hearing is May 5.It may be noted that the Delhi High Court on Tuesday (09th March) transferred this plea to the Division Bench of Chief Justice D.
