Further, to quash the order dated June 26, issuing summons to him. Justice Suraj Govindaraj has reserved its order after hearing in detail the submission made by Senior Advocate C.V. Nagesh, and Advocate Sandeep Patil, who appeared for Yediyurappa. In the complaint filed by Laxman Allapur who was deputed on election duty as a Flying Squad by the District Election Officer, Belagavi for Gokak Constituency Bye-Elections. It is alleged petitioner while campaigning for the BJP Candidate Ramesh Jarkiholi had appealed in his speech that the Veerashaiva Lingayat Community Members votes must be consolidated and that they should not disperse here and there and as such he has violated the Election Code of Conduct. Based on the complaint, the police registered a Non-Cognizable Report bearing and made a requisition on 26.11.2019, before the Trial Court to seek permission to register and investigate into the alleged non-cognizable offences, which was accorded. Pursuant to which police registered the FIR and after completion of investigation has submitted the Final “B” Report, before the Trial Court on June 25. However, the trial court strikes down the said order and June 26, takes cognizance and issues summons to the Petitioner and directs the Registry to register the case. It is argued in the petition that “The registration of FIR amounts to gross violation of the Rule of Law much less in gross violation to Section 155 of Cr.P.C. Further, the Trial Court ought to have applied its mind at the time of taking cognizance by giving reasons for summoning the petitioner. In the absence of such mandatory compliance the proceedings before the Trial Court become unsustainable and in absence of there being a set of facts so as to constitute the commission of the offences, the lodging of the complaint and continuation of the criminal proceeding pursuant thereto, would amount to gross abuse of process of Court and of law.” It is also claimed that bare reading of the complaint and the entire B Final Report reveals that the allegations made therein are based on presumptions and no evidence of whatsoever nature is produced so as to implicate the Petitioner. The entire complaint is concocted and does not instill any credibility and as such is liable to be quashed.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Storylast_img read more

Governor Douglas co-hosts education symposium

first_imgGovernor Jim Douglas joined U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan 20 other governors at a symposium put on by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the James B. Hunt, Jr. Institute for Education Leadership and Policy.  As vice-chairman of the NGA and chair of NGA Center for Best Practices, Governor Douglas co-hosted the event with former Governor Jim Hunt (D-NC) and Governor Bev Perdue (D-NC). This is a tremendous opportunity for me and my colleagues to share our thoughts, ideas and experiences with one another and with the Obama Administration, Governor Douglas said.  While Vermont students are among the brightest in the country, I looking forward to bringing back ideas that can help improve our system of education by making it more innovative, efficient and cost-effective, he added.Vermont will receive about $140 million through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for education and the state will compete for millions more in competitive Race to the Top and other grants.  One-time ARRA money offers a real opportunity to transform education in Vermont, but we can t spend this money as if it is business-as-usual in a way that builds up base government spending, the Governor said.  A wise deployment of these funds has the potential to better prepare our students for a rapidly changing economy, while creating a more cost-effective system of education in Vermont.The Governors Education Symposium, which concludes on June 15, is comprised of working sessions that will focus on standards and assessments, teacher effectiveness, support for low-performing schools and maximizing the Race to the Top Funds. Source: Governor Douglas’ officelast_img read more

Djokovic claims fifth Dubai title

first_imgRelatedPosts Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title Djokovic zooms to 10th Italian Open final Djokovic fined $10,000 for ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’ Novak Djokovic eased past Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 6-4 to lift his fifth Dubai Tennis Championships title on Saturday, extending his unbeaten start to the 2020 season. Both players looked solid on serve early in the opening set before Djokovic turned the screw to break in the eighth game with a searing crosscourt backhand winner. Djokovic closed out the set and continued to press home his advantage with another break of serve early in the second. Tsitsipas fought back to draw level at 3-3 but went on to commit a string of unforced errors and concede two break points in the ninth game. Djokovic surprised his opponent with a wonderfully disguised drop shot to take the lead before sealing victory on the first of his three championship points with a backhand winner down the line. “It was very close even though it was a straight-set win,” said Djokovic, who also won the Dubai titles in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013. “I was fortunate to hold my serve at the start of the match.” Djokovic has now won 21 straight matches, including 18 this season, having already lifted the inaugural ATP Cup with Serbia and a record-extending eighth Australian Open title last month. The 32-year-old dropped just one set in Dubai this week as he fought off three match points to overcome France’s Gael Monfils in the semifinals. “Yesterday I was one shot away from losing the match when three match points down, and it could have easily happened I was not here. That is sport — things can turnaround quickly,” Djokovic said. “I have played really well in most of the matches. This is a big win for me.”Tags: ATP CupDubai Tennis ChampionshipsGael MonfisNovak DjokovicStefanos Tsitsipaslast_img read more

Deadly Asian “Murder Hornets” are Here

first_imgLook up in the sky, is it a bird or a plane, no it’s a gigantic Asian hornet that can fly up to 20-miles per hour, rip the heads off of honeybees and even eat meat.So-called “Murder Hornets” from Asia have now reported in the U-S for the first time. The large, invasive insects grow up to 2-inches in length and pose a big threat to the country’s already-declining honeybee population. The massive insects been spotted in Washington State and are stirring fears for honeybees and humans.Multiple stings can even be fatal to some humans. The hornet’s venom is deadly and its stinger is long enough to puncture a beekeeping suit. In Japan, the hornets kill up to 50 people a year. Now, for the first time, they have arrived in the United States.U.S. Farmers depend on honeybees to pollinate many crops such as apples, blueberries and cherries. Asian giant hornets can use mandibles shaped like spiked shark fins to wipe out a honeybee hive in a matter of hours, decapitating the bees and flying away with the bee bodies to feed their young. The State Department of Agriculture will start trying to trap for queens this Spring. Queens that can grow to two inches long.last_img read more

I would’ve made a difference if I had played more at AFCON 2019 – Asamoah Gyan

first_imgWould Ghana’s Black Stars have gone further at the 2019 African Cup of Nations tournament had striker Asamoah Gyan played more?The player himself certainly thinks so.Gyan believes that he was unable to make a significant impact for the Black Stars due to his limited gametime at the AFCON.Despite being the nation’s all-time leading scorer, the player was used sparingly, featuring just twice from the bench against Cameroon and Tunisia.“I think I could have made a difference if I had played more but that’s the coach’s decision,” he he told Accra-based station, Joy FMGyan did not play in the Black Stars group opener against Benin but came off the bench in the 76th minute against Cameroon in the next game.He then remained on the bench for the game against Guinea Bissau, a match the Stars won 2-0.Against Tunisia, Gyan came on in the 84th minute, with Ghana down by a goal and played a role in the own goal scored by the North Africans.He then played the full duration of extra time but did not take a penalty in the shootout as Ghana went out.Gyan was particularly peeved by being left on the bench for the Black Stars’ match with Guinea-Bissau even when the Stars were 2-0 up.Ghana’s forward Asamoah Gyan (R) controls the ball during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) Group F football match between Cameroon and Ghana at the Ismailia Stadium on June 29, 2019. (Photo by OZAN KOSE / AFP) (Photo credit should read OZAN KOSE/AFP/Getty Images)The player believes that he wasn’t in head coach, Kwesi Appiah’s plans for the AFCON which might have accounted for the lack of minutes.“I feel I wasn’t in Kwesi Appiah’s plans for the AFCON. With my 17 years of experience, I could tell.“If I’m not a starter, I accept it, that’s the coach’s decision but at least…,” he said, tailing off at the end.last_img read more

How to Prioritize Your Work

first_imgIf you look at a list of tasks, you will notice that each task is something you need to do or something you have been asked to do, each sitting on a line of a page with a check box next to it, or instead in a software program with a similar design. Because each task is something you must do, each task appears to be equal, allowing us to view each task as being equal to 1.But all projects and tasks are not equal. While some have a weight of 1, other projects and tasks are worth many times more than 1, and some are worth far less, creating negative value. There is no such thing as time management, and what we mean when we use that popular phrase is prioritization.Prioritization is a Values-Based DecisionsIf you are going to have priorities, you have to make values-based decisions. You have to believe that one thing is more important than some other thing. You also have to be willing to see some things as negative, things that subtract from your goals and outcomes and purpose and meaning.You have great clarity about what your most important task is, but your email is piling up, and your friend just invited you to be part of a new and exciting project, one that you want to be part of. These simple routine conflicts require that you make decisions that consider the future you.What Is the ImpactLet’s stick with the idea that all tasks are given a weight of 1. How do you decide which tasks are a 10 and which are a negative 10? You have to start by testing the work to see what it is worth, and one test is the impact of completing that task.If you complete this task, does it move you closer to your goals and ambitions for the future? Does it impact the work you are here to do and is it something that contributes to your purpose and meaning? Or will this task only steal your time away from the things that make the greatest impact?Will the future you look back and be grateful that you spent time on a project or task, or will future you regret giving time to things that made no real impact? What is a ten on impact and what is a negative ten on impact? What looks like a ten on impact but will likely be zero and is only on your list because you don’t want to miss out on something that sounds like fun?How Important Is It to Your FutureThere is another test you might consider when prioritizing your projects and tasks: How important is it to your future?Some projects and tasks are more important to your future than others. The challenge for most of us is that we have more of the type of work that produces short-term results that we invest in those things to our detriment, leaving too little time for the projects and tasks that, seen from the future, are far more critical. Our balance here is often tilted in the wrong direction. Steeply, too.Without the context of looking backward from the future, it can be difficult to assess the difference between two projects or two tasks that both seem to be a ten as it pertains to their impact and importance. Asking which one is going to produce the greater long-term benefit is how you prioritize the most proactive, impactful, and meaningful projects and tasks.Let Future You Decide and Present You ActLet future you decide what is going to be most important to you and let present you block the time to do the work to make that future a reality.
