She had eloped from her home due to the lack of such support. In the hearing before the Court today, after interacting with the girl privately, she was also made to interact on the Court’s platform with her parents.After the private interaction, the court said that the girl had left from her home of her own accord due to a non-conducive environment for studying, she didn’t wish to return there for the same reason.However, the girl changed her mind after her interaction with her parents in the court’s presence, and said that she was ready to return provided they would support her education her.Her parents assured the Court that they would not scold or taunt her for whatever has transpired. They have also ensured that they will not force her to marry any other person whom she would not like to marry otherwiseThe court was hearing a habeas corpus petition, and in a previous hearing had directed the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of Delhi Police’s Crime Branch to trace the girl. The court had also expressed shock that no FIR had been registered in the case despite a complaint by the parents about their daughter having gone missing.As per the father’s allegation, one Syed Mustafa, a laborer had removed his daughter, an engineer, from their residence and on the same day took her to Kolkata by train. He suspected that it had been carried out in the manner of an organized crime.However, the girl denied this story and said that she had gone with the said Mustafa of her own free volition, having been disturbed by constant bickerings at her house. The state confirmed this stand and added that a Nikaahnama had also been produced, though the same could not be verified till date.The police had submitted that they had received a nikaahnama of the couple sent by post. The court had then expressed shock at the police’s failure to register an FIR on the bald statement of an unverified marriage, and directed for the girl to be traced and kept in a Nari Niketan for 4 days before being produced before it for verification of statements alleged to have been voluntarily made by her.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.

Watch Trey Anastasio Playing With Street Musicians In San Francisco

first_imgWith one day off between runs at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA and the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA, Phish made their way to the Bay Area and got themselves re-acquainted with the Golden Gate City. It seems that guitarist Trey Anastasio had an opportunity to visit with some local musicians, performing on the street with some buskers in what is presumably the city’s famed Chinatown district. The presumption comes not only from the Chinese characters on the sign, but also the banjo-like instrument that Anastasio is playing.Watch the short clip of Anastasio and the street musicians below, courtesy of Phish From The Road.last_img read more

Lakowe to Host 2016 Total Charity Golf Tournament

first_imgThis year’s annual Total Charity Golf Tournament will take place at the Lakowe Lakes Golf Course, Lagos on Saturday, October 15, 2016.The tournament is designed to raise funds to improve the infrastructure for selected charity projects in one of Total’s three operational locations in Nigeria. The funds raised are to be rotated between the charities every year, as part of the company’s social responsibility. The locations are Lagos, Port Harcourt and Abuja.This year, two charity homes, which provide care for abandoned, motherless and vulnerable children in the society, will benefit from the special fund. They are Olive Blooms Orphanage Home Ajah, and Friends of Jesus Orphanage Home, Badore both located in the Eti Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State. The Managing Director/ Chief Executive of Total E&P Nigeria Limited, Nicholaz Terraz, said: “We are happy to make this societal contribution in a way different from our core business.”All players are expected to make voluntary donations as participating fees. The amounts raised will be added to a special fund set aside by Total and presented to the selected charity organisations.In 2015, TEPNG donated proceeds from the tournament to the Zaamar Institute, Abuja, a learning ability centre for children with autism. Zaamar Institute utilised the funds for the provision of one-on-one classrooms; 2 toilet facilities; a store; and some play ground equipment for the children.The tournament which has been sponsored for 21 years by the NNPC/Total E&P Nigeria Joint Venture tees off by 09:00a.m. This year’s competition is expected to have 80 golfers from various parts of the country and will follow the Stable Ford format (Short Gun) and will be played over 18 holes.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Fresh Impacts Viewed on Mars, Moon

first_img(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 New impacts observed on the moon and Mars allow space scientists to learn about crater formation in near real time.  What conclusions can be drawn?MoonFlash shot:  On March 17, a flash was reported on the moon by NASA cameras (see video clip on  The object was the size of a small boulder going 56,000 miles per hour.  The crater is estimated to be 65 feet wide.  It was the brightest of 300 such impacts seen, by a factor of ten, since NASA monitoring lunar impacts in 2005.  The video clip states, “Lunar meteor showers have turned out to be more common than anyone expected.”  About 55% come from known meteor swarms; the others are random stragglers.The Earth’s atmosphere protects us from many such objects, but the fireball over Russia last Feb. 15 (, made by an object estimated to be 50 feet across (50 times larger than the lunar impactor), made big news as the biggest meteoroid to hit Earth in more than a century.MarsOrbiting spacecraft like the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) are allowing planetary scientists to gather “ground truth” data about meteoroid impact rates on another planet.  A press release from the University of Arizona discussed the 250 fresh craters detected by the high-resolution camera on MRO, based on before-and-after images.  Even though this implies hundreds of hits per year, the rate is lower than expected:Taking before and after pictures of Martian terrain, researchers of the UA-led HiRISE imaging experiment have identified almost 250 fresh impact craters on the Red Planet. The results suggest Mars gets pummeled by space rocks less frequently than previously thought, as scientists relied on cratering rates of the moon for their estimates.Can the new data provide any information on the age of Mars?  “Estimates of the rate at which new craters appear serve as scientists’ best yardstick for estimating the ages of exposed landscape surfaces on Mars and other worlds,” the article says.  There are, however, many variables to consider.  Meteoroids span a whole range of sizes, from dust particles to asteroid-size, each with its own probability of impact.  Objects above a certain threshold can spawn secondary impacts (9/25/07), making date calculations essentially unreliable (see 5/22/12)Today’s rates, furthermore, cannot be extrapolated into the distant past without making unverifiable assumptions.  So when Alfred McEwen says, “Mars now has the best-known current rate of cratering in the solar system,” he can only speak authoritatively of knowledge in the observational period of the space program.In addition to the major problem of secondaries, consider other complications when making calculations of crater rates and dates: speed of the impactor, angle of impact, gravity of the target, composition of the impactor and the target surface (e.g., porosity), atmospheric drag, magnetic field, sunlight pressure, focusing effects of other orbiting bodies.  Above all else it is impossible to know whether impact rates have been episodic.  One major swarm can throw all the dates off.  Planetary scientists try to infer a “Late Heavy Bombardment” from lunar data, but as we have seen, that inference is not without critics (4/26/12, 1/09/12, 9/17/10, 2/16/10).By analogy, there are rivers in large canyons (including the Grand Canyon and, at Mt. St. Helens, Loowit Canyon) that did not carve the canyons—the rivers are relicts of catastrophic events.  Modern viewers might look at these canyons and conclude that the canyons formed by slow, gradual erosion over long periods of time, but we know from Mt. St. Helens that is not true.  The Yellowstone fossil forests were similarly thought to have taken eons of slow processes, but now are thought to represent catastrophic deposits.So when you look at a crater-filled moon or Mars, or any of the other bodies in the solar system, you cannot know just from the number of craters how old the surface is, no matter what the textbooks and TV documentaries say.  If you won’t take our word for it, look at what Xiao and Strom said in Icarus a year ago (5/22/12).last_img read more

Rangers Star Bathgate, 83, Dies

first_imgNEW YORK — Andy Bathgate was just fine without a flashy nickname.While Bernie “Boom Boom” Geoffrion and Bobby “The Golden Jet” Hull became known for their powerful slap shots and colorful monikers, Bathgate could score with the best of them — and settled for just plain Andy.Hall of Fame winger Bathgate, one of the most prolific goal scorers of his day, has died. He was 83.Bathgate’s death was confirmed by the Hockey Hall of Fame and by the New York Rangers on Feb. 26.A dynamic shooter and playmaker, Bathgate was the NHL’s MVP for the 1958-59 season when he scored 40 goals and had 88 points. He was the first member of the Rangers to score 40 times in a season.“Andy set the bar for what it means to be a Ranger,” Hall of Famer Rod Gilbert said in a statement released by the team.“He was a true innovator of the game and my idol. As a young player, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to play with him and learn from him. He was class personified, on and off the ice. He will be sorely missed by everyone in the Rangers organization and throughout the hockey world.”A two-time, first-team All-Star in an era when Gordie Howe was the dominant right wing, Bathgate played in eight All-Star games. He spent just under 12 seasons with the Rangers before being traded to Toronto in 1964, when he won his only Stanley Cup.One of Bathgate’s most famous shots was on a backhander that crashed into the face of Montreal goaltender Jacques Plante in 1959. Plante then became the first NHL goalie to wear a mask in a game.Bathgate also played for Detroit and Pittsburgh in the NHL and Vancouver in the WHA during his 18 pro seasons. He scored 349 goals and 973 points in 1,069 NHL games and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1978.“Andy Bathgate was a strong leader, a consistently prolific scorer and a fierce competitor,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. He said Bathgate “earned the respect of the entire hockey world.”Considered one of the Rangers’ all-time greats, Bathgate’s No. 9 jersey was retired by the team — along with that of Adam Graves, who also wore the number — in 2009.“Andy’s Hall of Fame career and many tremendous accomplishments place him among the greatest players who have ever worn a Rangers jersey,” team president Glen Sather said in a statement. “Those fortunate enough to have known him fondly remember how he always carried himself with the utmost class and dignity.”When he was dealt to Toronto in one of the biggest trades in NHL history, Bathgate held every major Rangers scoring record. That included scoring a goal in 10 straight games, a mark that still stands for the Rangers.His trademark was a blistering slap shot at a time when “the slapper” was a far less popular weapon than it is today. But Bathgate also was a creative passer and a dependable performer who played in every regular-season game from 1958-64.He joined the Rangers in 1952, playing in 18 games, then skated in 20 for them the next season. By 1954-55, he was a regular on Broadway — and a star in a sporting region dominated by baseball players.In 1961, he became captain of the Rangers, a perennial also-ran. When he was dealt to Toronto, Bathgate had skated in only 22 postseason games. He got into 14 that spring, scoring five goals to help the Maple Leafs win the championship.No cause of death was released.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Hayley Turner suspended three months for breaking BHA betting rules

first_imgHayley Turner described herself as living two lives, one as a broadcaster who could bet when she pleased and one as an occasional jockey who could not, as she sought to explain how she had come to breach racing’s strict rules that bar jockeys from betting. A disciplinary panel said it would not “reject that explanation out of hand” but still felt it necessary to suspend her from riding for three months.While Turner described the outcome as “a bitter pill to swallow”, she may also have felt a modicum of relief. The entry-point punishment for a breach of this rule is an 18-month period of disqualification from the sport, meaning the jockey in question would be banned from all racecourses and racing stables and from discussing the sport with licensed professionals.For someone with a nascent broadcasting career, that would have been a disastrous outcome. Turner’s solicitor, Rory Mac Neice, said such a ban could only be justified “when the sport’s integrity has been threatened” and insisted there was no such threat here, which the panel eventually accepted.However, while Mac Neice argued for a fine, the panel insisted on a short suspension of Turner’s riding career, though she will not otherwise be restricted and can continue with her broadcasting work from the races. The panel said she was guilty of “a lax and complacent attitude to the rules of racing and a lack of awareness of the potential damage to racing posed by a jockey regularly betting while riding in races”.Turner opened a betting account with Paddy Power in December 2015, one month after her well-publicised retirement. But she fell into a trap of her own making by reapplying for a licence the following year in order to ride in invitation events, while continuing to bet. More recently, she has taken rides in France to take advantage of the weight allowance offered to all female jockeys there.

She made a net profit of £160.Explaining the circumstances in which she would bet through an app on her phone, Turner said: “You’re just stood around doing eight races from Chelmsford with Bob Cooper [on At The Races]. ‘We’ll have a fiver on this one …’ It’s all Bob’s fault!“When I was actively riding, I would never have a bet. I respected the rules for 15 years when I have been riding. But then when I’ve been doing the media and retired, in my head I’m not a jockey, so therefore it’s OK to have a bet. And they’re small bets, £5 here, £10 there. There’s nothing serious. I’ve never had a bet on my own horse, I’ve never had a bet in a race that I’m riding in, or even near a time that I’m riding. As soon as I knew I was riding, that’d be it, I wouldn’t.“I’m a bit disappointed. Three months is a quarter of a year not earning any money and the BHA have said I’m not a threat to the integrity of the sport. It’s hard to understand, to be honest.”It may have counted against Turner that some of her bets, in July 2016, were placed within hours of being told by the BHA she had been granted a renewed jockeys’ licence, and again over the following two days. The BHA’s Tim Naylor suggested to the panel that she had no excuse for not being aware of her responsibilities to the sport at such a time.However, Naylor said: “There are certainly no integrity issues in relation to Miss Turner’s betting.” He said her bets had all been on horses to win and there was no discernible pattern as to the trainers or jockeys who carried her money.Turner said she hopes to return to the saddle when her ban expires in March and will continue with her media work in the meantime. She will not bet again until she is finally, definitively finished with race-riding.“I feel like I’ve been riding quite well, I’m having plenty of winners and more importantly I’ve been enjoying it again, which I stopped doing before and that’s why I retired in the first place,” she said. “I’m just going to have to watch my weight for three months now, aren’t I? I’m 34 but I’m still learning. It’s tough but I can’t moan too much, really.”Tips for Friday racesDoncaster 11.50 Kilronan Castle 12.25 Don Lami 1.00 Stowaway Magic 1.35 Clondaw Kaempfer 2.10 Alvarado 2.45 Manny Owens 3.20 Big Penny Bangor 12.00 Champagne James 12.35 Knocknamona 1.10 Forest Des Aigles 1.45 Waterlord 2.20 Tawseef 2.55 Virginia Chick 3.30 Ofcourseiwill Cheltenham 12.10 Western Ryder 12.45 Sizing Tennessee 1.20 Okotoks 1.55 Song Saa 2.30 Mysteree (nb) 3.05 Cantlow 3.40 Arthur’s Gift (nap) Chelmsford 5.45 Ertidaad 6.15 Trick Shot Jenny 6.45 Dance Me 7.15 Knight Errant 7.45 Bahamian Heights 8.15 Stylish Dancer 8.45 Pass The Cristal Share on Pinterest Share on LinkedIn Melon looks tasty for Cheltenham return as thaw enables resumption Share on Messengerlast_img read more
