Photo courtesy GoFrogs.com printThe team has a mix of old and young talent heading into the 2019 season. Photo courtesy GoFrogs.comA combination of old and new talent has the Horned Frogs track and field team in a position for success this spring.The team is returning many athletes that broke school records last season, while also adding new recruits that offer skills in different events to their already talented roster. Kendahl Shue, Brittney Trought, Yasmin Brooks, Lexi Aitken, Evelyn Mandel, Erin Barth and Chyna Ries are all returning for the 2019 season after breaking school records last season.New TalentLily Beckford is one of many athletes that signed to join the team in the fall. Beckford is a transfer student from Brunel University in London. She competes as a sprinter and will be crucial in 200m, 400m and 800m events. Beckford broke a career record while competing at the United Kingdom Women’s League Division 1 meet. “Based on the international kids we’ve had before, she’ll give us leadership and be an example for the younger athletes on the team,” head coach Darryl Anderson said in press release. Asiah Fields is coming in as a sprinter from a high school in Arizona where she won two AIA state titles and won the 400m during her senior year. Anderson said that the program wanted to add girls that would make it at a national level relay team, and Fields will create a more competitive group in the 4×400. After spending one year at the University of Central Michigan, Brooklin Klopf will bring an all-conference pedigree to indoor shot put. Klopf is a two-time Michigan state champion for shot put and was runner-up in the discus at the 2017 MHSAA State Finals. “She’s a really good young thrower,” Anderson said. “We want to be more diverse on the women’s side and we needed to add someone in that area. We think with her size and her movement skills that she can be a 50-plus thrower pretty quick.”Tysen Townsend comes to TCU from Spring, Texas as a top-five regional pole vaulter and sixth in the state. Anderson said he thinks she can be a developmental athlete in the pole vault. Jordan Williams, from Fresno, Calif. was a state finalist position for shot put. Williams advanced to finals after her personal-best record and ended up finishing ninth in the state. Anderson said they believe she will develop into a special athlete at the Big 12 level. Teleda Williams is a sprinter from Las Vegas and was named to the Nevada All-State First-Team after winning four state titles and setting records in all four events. She specializes in 100m, 200m and the 4×100 relay. “When you look at our class, we added a lot more speed. We wanted girls that have good foot speed and having run under 24 seconds in high school gives us that,” Anderson said. “We think Teleda will help immediately, not just in the 100 and 200, but both relays as well.”Kiana Banks is a sprinter from Atlanta that won a state title her junior year in the 400m. Mariah Castillo, a distance runner from Santa Clarita, Calif., set personal bests her senior year and made it to the California State Championships in the 1600m. Castillo also competed in the Mt. SAC Relays and Southern Section Division finals, and she finished first in both. Finally, the team added another crucial member to their talented roster. San Jose State transfer Destiny Longmire brings NCAA experience and the title of two-time Mountain West Champion in long jump. “Destiny brings NCAA championship level experience and an understanding of what it takes to excel at this level,” Anderson said. The women’s track and field team will begin its season on Saturday, March 16 at the TCU Invitational.

Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by yesterday’s arrests in Kabul of two commercial TV presenters, Fahim Kohdamani of Emroz and Ajmal Alamzai of Ariana TV. Alamzai was released late last night but Kohdamani is still being held.“We call for Kohdamani’s immediate and unconditional release,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Afghan government has again failed to respect press freedom, arbitrarily arresting journalists who have done nothing wrong.”Kohdamani was arrested at the behest of the Kabul prosecutor for broadcasting music and hosting the programme called “Biya wa Bibin” (Come and See). The prosecutor has accused him of broadcasting “anti-Islamic” and “vulgar” programmes.His arrest appears to be linked to letters which clerics sent to President Hamid Karzai accusing Emroz of failing to respect “religious values” for broadcasting music on 7 January, the day of the commemoration of the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, regarded by Shiites as the Third Imam.The head of Emroz, Najeebullah Kabuli, told Reporters Without Borders he thought the arrest was a reflection of political interests including the involvement of neighbouring countries. Other TV stations have broadcast Indian music and TV series without encountering such problems.The host of Ariana TV’s programme Didadgah, Alamzai was arrested by the National Directorate of Security in connection with a report consisting primarily of interviews with former Taliban representatives in Kabul in which he made a direct call to a Taliban spokesman to ask for his reaction. He was freed at around midnight last night.The head of Ariana TV, Ehsanollah Aryanzai, told Reporters Without Borders: “The programme dealt with Barak Obama’s comment about ‘dialogue with the moderate Taliban’ and did not endanger Afghanistan’s security. The arrest was illegal because the journalist was virtually kidnapped on the street and no one was told. Furthermore, the opinion of the Commission for Verifying Media Misconduct is necessary before arresting any journalist.”For more information about press freedom in Afghanistan, see the recent Reporters Without Borders report entitled “What gains for press freedom from Hamid Karzai’s seven years as president?” Follow the news on Afghanistan RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan March 24, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities arrest two TV presenters in Kabul News Organisation News News Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific to go further March 11, 2021 Find out more RSF_en May 3, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News June 2, 2021 Find out more

Harinath as Assistant Solicitor General in respect of the High Court. It is contended that the appointment order is in contravention of sections 6(d) and 49(1)(ah) of Advocates Act, 1961 and violative of Articles 14, 16 and 21 of Constitution of India, in as much as it deprives the right of the Advocates of AP High Court Bar Association/ Bar Council. Section 6(d) imposes on the state bar council the function to safeguard the rights, privileges and interests of advocates on its roll. Section 49(1)(ah) deals with the power of the BCI to stipulate the conditions subject to which an advocate shall have the right to practise and the circumstances under which a person shall be deemed to practise as an advocate in a court. The plea, by Advocate M. Solomon Raju, avers that in the recent developments in the A.P. High Court, the post of Asst. Solicitor General fell vacant. Earlier this post was held by an Advocate who belongs to Andhra Pradesh and since the Advocate Elevated as Judge of this Court, the post fell vacant. It is submitted that in the said backdrop, the said post was to be filled up with an Advocate practicing in A.P. High Court who is on the rolls of the Bar Council of Andhra Pradesh. “In the recent past, many Advocates of Telangana State especially Advocates on the rolls of Telangana Bar Council were brought into Andhra Pradesh High Court and they were appointed as Government Pleaders and Asst. Government Pleaders. In so far as appointment of Government Pleaders and Asst. Government Pleaders are concerned, it was made by the State Government of Andhra Pradesh. Similar to that the 1st respondent (UOI) without considering the aspect that the 5th respondent belongs to Telangana Bar Council and he is a Elected Member there for the 2nd time, appointed him as Asst. Solicitor General. In fact this is bad in law for the reason that he does not belong to Andhra Pradesh and he is not on the Bar Council Rolls as on the day of appointment. Also, I verified with Bar Council and came to know that his membership with Bar Council is not registered. The 5th respondent submitted his Certificate of Practice in Telangana Bar Council and he also received Medical Card from Telangana Bar Council. Thus he got benefits from the said Bar Council”, it is argued. The petitioner submits that since all the nominated posts are politically interlinked, the Political Executive has got some hold over the appointments. However, such power of appointments shall be restricted to the particular State and the Political Executive cannot bring an Advocate of different Bar Council and cannot appoint him in another State as a Law Officer. It is narrated that until 31st December, 2018 the High Court served as the common High Court for both states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. There was a huge rift between Andhra and Telangana Advocates from the year 2010 to 2014. The Advocates of Andhra Pradesh especially those who practiced in the united High Court at Hyderabad, suffered severe humiliation. They were beaten black and blue, insulted in filthy language and daily there were boycotts and Dharnas asking them to go back to Andhra. “There were many differences between Andhra and Telangana Advocates, where boycotts used to go on weekly once or twice in the High Court. Many days the common High Court functioning was affected at the request of the elected Presidents, Secretaries of the Association. This way the things worsened and the Telangana Movement got momentum from the Advocates of Local Bars and they too joined. For many days, the High Court of Hyderabad used to publish a notice in the last page of Causelist that an Advocate will not be allowed into the premises unless his name is not figured in the causelist, this was issued in order to prevent physical manhandling of the Advocates. This caused much trauma and suffering to the Advocates who are practicing”, it is urged. The plea narrates how when an Advocate from Hyderabad was appointed as the Advocate General in respect of the Meghalaya High Court, the entire Bar Association protested and the Advocate General resigned within a week and returned to Hyderabad. It is contended that Harinath does not have any right of vote in the AP HC Bar Association and also the AP State Bar Council as of now. For all purposes he shall be treated as an Advocate of Telangana state. Till May 20, he was holding the post as standing counsel and also for the National Investigating Agency in Telangana High Court. “Also if an Advocate is elevated from Bar to Bench, then his standing at the High Court Bar or the Bar Council will be considered only in that particular state, i.e. an Advocate of AP High Court Bar Association/Council cannot be considered for a Judge in Tamil Nadu High Court or any other High Court in India. For the purpose of direct elevation from the Bar, the first impediment is that the Advocate shall be from the respective Bar Association and Bar Council, in case of transfer it’s a different procedure”, the plea brings to the bench’s attention. It is advanced that the very spirit of Article 16 is gravely violated in the present appointment, as the Advocates from the A.P. Bar Association and the Advocates on the rolls of the A.P. Bar Council were deprived of the opportunity. The very purpose of Article 371-D thereby amending the constitution to provide equitable opportunities and facilities to the people across the state is also violated. “The present post that fell vacant is a post which is exclusively within the jurisdiction and territory of the State and thus an Advocate from out of state Bar Council cannot be brought into”, it is reinforced.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Specifically, protesters have mentioned a “lack of medical care, lack of food and unsanitary conditions” as cause for today’s protest.Over the past weekend, two Westville Correctional Facility employees also succumbed to the virus.ABC 57 News reports protesters plan to circle the prison while inside their vehicles at Noon CST.In response, the Indiana Department of Corrections has issued the following press release:Westville Correctional Facility and Warden John Galipeau would like to take this opportunity to thank staff and offenders for all their hard work during these uncertain times. As the novel coronavirus spreads across the state and country, Westville Correctional Facility is working to limit the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for all offenders and staff.In the last two weeks, the Purposeful Living Units Serve (PLUS) Program and our Level one Unit WCA has focused on making face masks. Donations of material, elastic, hair ties and sewing machines are being used to make masks for each offender housed at Westville as well as all employees. The donations have come in from community members, religious groups and staff. The masks are to be worn at all times by staff, as well as offenders. The nearly 2,500 masks produced are just one way the facility is doing its part to flatten the curve. Medical services screens staff and offenders daily for fevers. Staff are having temperatures taken every day prior to entering the facility, and anyone who has a fever of 100 degrees or higher is sent home.

Positive cases are isolated in a different area, pending recovery from the virus. Each unit is being staffed by the same custody officers to reduce exposure risk. The facility proactively took steps to social distance by offering no cross programming, temporarily canceling face-to-face visits and all volunteer programs. Offenders and staff have been tapped to clean continuously and practice social distancing during any movement. Sanitizer has been deployed in all areas and is available to all offenders and staff. State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG, said the Indiana State Department of Health has worked closely with the Department of Correction to reduce the risk to staff and offenders and to increase testing in DOC facilities.“We stand ready to assist in any way possible and support the social distancing and enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures being taken, as they are critical to reducing the risk of COVID-19 in congregate living settings,” Dr. Box said.Westville administration is continuously working to find unique ways to engage the offenders.

This wasn’t a case of Jilan Moore simply forgetting to pay the correct tax, rather she deliberately and wilfully suppressed sales and under-declared her tax contributors to avoid paying what she rightfully owed. Notes to editorsJilan Moore is of Spilsby and her date of birth is March 1950Beijing Dragon Catering Limited (Company Reg no. 06199908).A disqualification order has the effect that without specific permission of a court, a person with a disqualification cannot: Press Office act as a director of a company take part, directly or indirectly, in the promotion, formation or management of a company or limited liability partnership be a receiver of a company’s property Media Manager 0303 003 1743 Email [email protected] Twitter Office currently closed during the coronavirus pandemic. Jilan Moore (68) was the director of Beijing Dragon Catering Limited, the company that acted as the trading vehicle for three licensed restaurants across Lincolnshire known as ‘The Beijing Dragon’.Beijing Dragon Catering was incorporated in September 2007 and at the company’s height, Jilan Moore ran three restaurants in Spilsby, Grimsby and Skegness with her husband.From 2013, Jilan Moore ran the restaurants as the sole director before closing down one of the eateries in Skegness and by September 2016, the trading company went into liquidation.The insolvency of Beijing Dragon Catering triggered an investigation by the Insolvency Service, when investigators discovered that the tax authorities had previously dealt with the company after they picked-up that Beijing Dragon Catering’s records did not match the returns they had officially submitted.The tax authorities discovered that Beijing Dragon Catering deliberately suppressed sales and under-declared tax owed for just over a year between February 2014 and April 2015.The authorities sought to reclaim just over £100,000 in unpaid taxes but Beijing Dragon Catering could not afford to pay its debts, which forced the trading company to go into liquidation.On 15 January 2019, the Secretary of State accepted a disqualification undertaking from Jilan Moore, after she admitted causing Beijing Dragon to submit five false tax returns which deliberately under-declared tax owed on sales.Effective from 5 February 2019, Jilan Moore is banned for nine years from directly or indirectly becoming involved, without the permission of the court, in the promotion, formation or management of a company.Two years prior to her directorship disqualification, Jilan Moore was sentenced in March 2017 to two years imprisonment having been found guilty of tax fraud. She has since been released from jail.Dave Elliott, Chief Examiner for the Insolvency Service, said: LinkedIn This service is for journalists only.
