Controversial swimmer Nick D’Arcy has reportedly filed for bankruptcy.
The move would allow him to avoid having to pay a hefty damages bill for assaulting another swimmer.
D’Arcy, who was convicted of assaulting fellow swimmer Simon Cowley and later ordered to pay $180,000 in damages, filed for bankruptcy on Tuesday, both Nine and Seven Networks reported. Cowley’s lawyer, Sam Macedone, said Darcy’s move was a “cop-out” to avoid paying his client.
“It’s just a way of walking away from this whole mess and this debt and this judgment that he owes,” he told Nine’s A Current Affair.
Following seismic tremors in North-West England this Spring, the firm exploring for natural shale gas in the region has admitted that the disturbances were caused by the controversial exploration process of fracking.
Fracking involves cracking or fracturing rock, containing trapped shale gas, by using pressurized liquid. Shale gas is an increasingly important energy resource though there have been claims that it is worse for the environment than coal, largely due to the fracking process.
“The hydraulic fracturing of Cuadrilla’s Preese Hall-1 well did trigger a number of minor seismic events.”
“The seismic events were due to an unusual combination of geology at the well site coupled with the pressure exerted by water injection as part of operations.”
WHAT THE FUCK? SOUNDS LIKE A NEW ‘DOCTOR’? OFF CANON? HMMMMMMMMMMMMM
“Harry Potter” director David Yates is teaming up with the BBC to turn its iconic sci-fi TV series “Doctor Who” into a bigscreen franchise.
Yates, who directed the last four Potter films, told Daily Variety that he is about to start work on developing a “Doctor Who” movie with Jane Tranter, BBC Worldwide’s L.A.-based exec VP of programming and production.
“We’re looking at writers now. We’re going to spend two to three years to get it right,” he said. “It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena.”
“Doctor Who” follows the adventures across space and time of a super-intelligent alien in human form, who battles a variety of cosmic bad guys aided by plucky human companions.
“The notion of the time-travelling Time Lord is such a strong one, because you can express story and drama in any dimension or time,” Yates said.
“Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch,” he said.
