Entering Saturday’s match, Putz and Sasaroga were undefeated at the No. 3 position. Close sets on courts one and two left the doubles point up for grabs. Kate Paulus and Mercedes Aristegui on court one and Addy Guevara and Chloe Hule on court two were faced with tough, back-and-forth matches. Williams said that canceling out external factors helped Guevara and Hule surge back to clinch the doubles point with a 7-5 win on court two. “They might know that that court is finished, but we coach them to be thinking about what is my next play to do on this exact score count,” Williams said. The Frogs momentum carried over into singles as Hule put away the second point in a 6-2, 6-0 win on court four. Freshmen Paulus followed with a demanding 6-1, 6-1 win over Marine Darzyan to put the Frogs up 3-0. On court two, Aristegui took down Michelle Walker to secure the team win for the Frogs. Aristegui now leads the team with 11 singles wins on the season. The resilient team win was a confidence boost, Williams said, who are facing both injuries and general soreness despite their 10-day break. Ellie Douglas and Stevie Kennedy both sat out Saturday’s match, and Tedford rejoined the team this week due to the Frog’s health issues, Coach Lee Walker said in a press release on GoFrogs.com. The Frogs remain undefeated on their home court, but next week they will travel to Tempe, Arizona to face Arizona State Feb. 22 and Ohio State Feb. 24. center_img Kennedy Stadler Kennedy Stadlerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kennedy-stadler/ Kennedy Stadlerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kennedy-stadler/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Linkedin Linkedin Women’s tennis prepares for ASU, Ohio State World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Twitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

first_img Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence February 24, 2021 Find out more to go further February 18, 2021 Find out more Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian News In its annual report published on 2 November, JED said it has so far registered a total of 85 press freedom violations in the DRC in 2019, including 18 acts of aggression, torture or mistreatment of journalists. Last weekend’s murder brings the number of Congolese journalists murdered in the DRC in the past two decades to 15. Was Papy Mahamba Mumbere killed because of his commitment to combatting the Ebola epidemic that has killed thousands in the DRC? He had just hosted a programme on Lwemba Community Radio about the response to the epidemic when he was murdered at his home in the town of Lwemba at around 8 p.m. on 2 November. Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo February 16, 2021 Find out more According to the information gathered by JED, Mumbere was hacked to death in front of his wife by a group of men armed with knives and machetes, who also inflicted a serious machete injury on his wife when she tried to intervene. They set fire to the couple’s home as they left. Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Reporters Without Borders (RSF) joins Journalist in Danger (JED), its partner organization in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in calling for a thorough investigation to quickly identify the perpetrators and circumstances of last weekend’s murder of a community radio journalist in the northeastern province of Ituri. JED said it was “extremely shocked” by Mumbere’s murder on the day that is celebrated worldwide as International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists. The DRC is currently ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index. Health workers move a patient to a hospital after he was cleared of having Ebola inside a MSF (Doctors Without Borders) supported Ebola Treatment Centre (ETC) on November 4, 2018 in Butembo, Democratic Republic of the Congo. John WESSELS / AFP The radio station’s manager said Mumbere’s recent coverage of the measures being taken to combat the Ebola epidemic were not well received by some of the local population and by armed groups, which are increasing hostile to these measures.

We either read to learn or read for pleasure. But do we really know how to differentiate the two? Or do we just read through it all without truly understanding? By FRANZ A.D. MORALES Published on Monday, October 14, 2013 | 1:22 pm When we read, we either read for information (serious reading) or read to pass the time (bed reading). Reading for information means we hope to improve our minds from it, while reading to pass the time is a means to keep us entertained.Serious reading and bed reading are two sides of the same coin. When we do some serious reading, we expand our mind and knowledge while enriching the soul. It is pleasurable, yet confined in a rigid discipline that’s hard to enjoy for long stretches.Bed reading, on the other hand, is pure pleasure. We don’t care if it contributes less towards the stretching of our mind or enriching of our souls, we get entertained and that’s what’s important.Problem is do we really spend time to understand it all? Or do we just consume everything as quickly as possible? These days, unfortunately, it seems we treat serious literature as bed reading material, while we take bed reading material seriously.It’s like watching documentaries for fun, while taking the latest celebrity gossip seriously. It’s not healthy.In this age where celebrity gossip, trashy romance novels, and poorly-written novellas made into movies rule the literary world, one should take a step back and start reading books that matter.Some reading suggestions:Across Five Aprilsby Irene HuntFrom the Newberry Award Winning author of ‘Up A Road Slowly,’ ‘Across Five Aprils’ tells the unforgettable story of Jethro Creighton, a boy who comes of age during the turbulent years of the Civil War.All Quiet on the Western Frontby Erich Maria RemarquePaul Bäumer enlists his classmates to join the German Army, and with youthful exuberance, they become soldiers. However, under the first bombardment in the trenches, they break into pieces. As the war continues year after year, Paul holds himself to a vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other. That is, if he can come out of the war alive.The Helpby Kathryn StockettA story of three ordinary women, Skeeter, Aibileen, and Minny, as they take one extraordinary step, coming together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. Why? Because they are tired of the lines that define their town and their times, realizing that sometimes lines are made to be crossed.These books are meant to be savored and devoured slowly, though it can be read for pleasure as well. The titles can be both uplifting and entertaining, but most especially, definitely worth your while,Bed reading and serious reading are not exclusive from each other. What you can read for entertainment, can be read to enrich the soul, as long as you choose the right reading material.To find more books that can enrich your soul and expand your mind, visit The Book Rack at 2014 1st Ave., Arcadia or check out http://bookrackarcadia.com for more information.

We really need young people, especially men, to register to vote and engage with the Together for Yes campaign.“A lot of men have commented that because they should not have any say in what a woman does with her body they aren’t going to vote, while noble, this decision is misguided, any man who does not vote YES for that reason is merely allowing the continuation of the status quo and its harmful effects.  A YES vote will allow all people of Ireland to have a say in what happens to their bodies.” Ms. Murphy concluded.More about society here.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago A feared foreclosure surge seems less likely than some anticipate, according to research associates at the Urban Institute.Flatlining forbearance rates have generated concern among members of the media, causing experts to predict that a large number of homeowners could face foreclosure in 2021.”Some policymakers worry about what will happen at the end of forbearance to these borrowers and whether borrowers who have not regained their prior financial position will go into foreclosure,” noted the institute’s Michael Neal and Lori Goodman. “But this widespread forbearance won’t necessarily happen, even among government loan borrowers who have a higher risk of default due to higher-initial-loan to value ratios, higher debt-to-income ratios, lower credit scores, and lower incomes than borrowers using conventional loans.”They say that loss mitigation policies and substantial housing equity can keep foreclosures at bay in most states.The two strong lines of defense are the “loss mitigation waterfall” and the amount of home equity that borrowers have accumulated thanks to home price appreciation.Borrowers in government securities have an average 22% equity buffer, which is a saving factor for those homeowners, according to the Urban Institute’s report.According to the institute’s analysis, the average borrower with a government loan has 22% equity.Just 3,771 of about 626,000 delinquent or forborne borrowers; .6%, have negative equity. Most (2,817) are U.S. VA loans, many of which are originated with loan-to-value ratios above 100%. Fewer than 500 FHA and Rural Housing loans have negative equity.In some states, the smaller home equity buffer may result in more foreclosures, note the authors.They write, “The share of mortgages with negative equity values range from a low of 0.1% in several states to highs of 1.8% in Wisconsin and 1.4% in Illinois. The share of borrowers with negative equity or near-negative equity are mostly in the single digits, with only Wisconsin, Illinois, and Alaska exceeding 10%.In analyzing the data, which can be read in full on urban.org, the researchers concluded that Americans will see far fewer foreclosures than they did after the Great Recession.”The three-month extension of the forbearance period announced on February 9 was welcome news, as it gives struggling borrowers more time to benefit from improved employment prospects as the economy recovers and to build an equity cushion; this is particularly critical to homeowners without equity,” UI reported. “A further extension may well be necessary.” Subscribe Previous: Decreased Delinquencies Only Tell ‘Part of the Story’ Next: The Week Ahead: Mortgage Servicing in Coming Months Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more

The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy was hearing a plea seeking a prohibition on Ministers and the like from campaigning in the elections as they hold public offices, draw a salary from the government and are in a position to exert undue influence. The Petitioner, Founder, and President of Ahimsa Socialist Party prayed that his representation be considered and the Ministers and Opposition Leader are directed to restrain to campaign for their party candidates contest in the general elections (except their candidature), holding the public office and drawing a salary from public funds. Court’s observations Having perused the plea, the High Court noted that even though a Minister may be willing to shed his official bandobast to attend a rally merely as a politician, the very status of the Minister and the requirement to give him security cover may not permit the freedom that would be required for the purpose. “This goes more so with higher officials like Chief Ministers and those holding cabinet positions at the Centre”, Court added. However, the Court further said, “A strict Election Commission can, nonetheless, put some guidelines in place, in addition to the existing guidelines indicated in the model code, at least to ensure that the government funds are not brazenly used for campaigning purposes as is usually being indulged in at present.” The Court also noted that the Election Commission has sufficient authority to put checks and balances in place that allow a Minister or the like to enjoy the status yet not spend official funds for campaigning or election purposes. Significantly, the Court also remarked, “However, the malaise is now deep-rooted. One has to wear allegiance to a political leader, if not on the sleeve at least visibly crying out of the pocket. And these are not only at election time but adopted as a perennial measure, almost as a talisman to ward off the evil eye.” Lastly, directing the Election Commission to deal with the petitioner’s representation, if not for the upcoming elections, for the future elections, the Court closed the Writ Petition.

Plea In Supreme Court Seeks ‘SC Digital Venues’ To Enable Technologically Deprived Advocates/ Litigants To Appear Before Top Court

first_imgTop StoriesPlea In Supreme Court Seeks ‘SC Digital Venues’ To Enable Technologically Deprived Advocates/ Litigants To Appear Before Top Court LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK22 May 2021 7:25 AMShare This – xSupreme Court of IndiaA PIL has been moved before the Supreme Court seeking establishment of ‘Supreme Court Digital Venues’ across the country to enable such Advocates and litigants to appear before the Top Court, who do not have access to technological infrastructure. The development assumes significance in view of prevalent debate surrounding establishment of Regional Benches of the Supreme Court as per Article 130 of the Constitution.Advertisement The Petitioner seeks establishment of at least one Digital Venue in every State and Union Territory of India, suitably equipped for the litigants / advocates to appear before the Top Court through video conferencing, along with E-filing facility. This, the Petitioner states, will enhance access to justice and overcome any anticipation of geographical, financial, health, social, psychological or technological challenges, especially during the pandemic.Advertisement “Virtual / online hearings substantially advance upon a reciprocal balance of possession of digital gadgets alongwith effective internet connectivity maintained by such appearable litigant parties or their advocates or representatives from across the expanse of the country with the Courtrooms. Stating otherwise, as a matter of ground truth, a large number of litigants and advocates, especially those living in the rural and remote areas, lack the access to digital gadgets (or infrastructure) and effective internet connectivity as vital for the virtual / online hearing of cases,” the plea states.Advertisement Advertisement The Petitioner has further submitted: Supreme Court Digital Venues shall stand as a ready national infrastructure and ensure the wheels of justice moving in case of an unforeseeable disaster, calamity or outbreak, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, etc.They shall increase and ensure the appearance and participation of advocates from all across the country before the Supreme Court, thereby promoting the sense of a truly “national Bar”.These venues enable multiple advocates to appear before the Top Court for an identical cause at the same time from different geographical locations.These are cost-efficient alternative for the numerous litigants and advocates all across the country thereby saving the expense(s) incurred during their travel to New Delhi for court hearings.
