French horse racing targets May 11 return

first_img French horse racing targets May 11 return French horse racing could resume from 11 May, but without spectators and under strictly supervised conditions, according to the governing bodies for flat and harness racing.Racing in the country has been suspended since 17 March as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19), though a practice run of an event with minimum personnel was also conducted that month.With plans to begin re-opening the French economy from 11 May, France Galop, the flat and steeplechase racing organiser, and harness racing governing body LeTrot said this test provided a solid foundation for a wider roll-out.Under the agreed conditions, each horse could only be accompanied to races by an individual responsible for accompanying them to the event and for their wellbeing, their trainer, and the jockey.Racetrack staff would be kept to a strict minimum, with access to tracks closely monitored, and all on-site personnel provided with protective equipment. Social distancing controls would also be put in place for those at tracks during the events.Furthermore, horses trained abroad, and jockeys holding a licence issued in a country other than France would not be allowed to participate, at least until the end of May.France Galop and LeTrot noted that this would mean some tracks would not be able to hold races, as they lacked the capacity to implement these measures.The exact composition of the racing calendar from 11 May remains to be seen, with the two governing bodies saying they would look to offer a balance of activity across all categories. A programme is to be published in the coming days.It also remains unclear what funding could be raised from the resumption of racing, which is heavily dependent on revenue from betting, via land-based monopoly Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU). The crisis has prompted the operator to stop all offline marketing, before furloughing up to 95% of its 1,250 employees as a result of Covid-19.While French President Emmanuel Macron aims to reopen sectors of the French economy from 11 May, he has already warned that bars and restaurants may stay closed into the summer months.This could mean that PMU’s retail network will only be partially restored by that date. With customers unable to bet, this would deprive the racing sector of funding to cover its costs.However, France Galop and LeTrot said, a meeting held this week between its management, the Ministry of Public Action and Accounts and the Ministry of Agriculture “proved to be very constructive”. The government would provide financial support to the sector to mitigate the damage caused by the pandemic, they said.The plans remain subject to government guidance, and both pledged to adapt the resumption strategy based on the official advice.

Championship blog: British & Irish Cup round-up

first_imgLlanelli 44, Bedford Blues 15; Rotherham 59, Connacht Eagles 3Barring a major upset at Goldington Road on Saturday and Rotherham leaving without even a losing bonus point, the Titans will progress to the quarter-finals for the first time. But with Bedford’s erratic form this season it would be premature to rule this out. Llanelli have only two wins to their credit in the competition, but have five bonus points and will fancy adding to Connacht’s Cup woes at the Sportsground on Saturday. The Eagles, who have done precious little soaring in the tournament, leaked nine tries at Clifton Lane, but Llanelli’s better points difference could see them finish ahead of the Yorkshiremen, should Bedford oblige.Six-try Albion head Pool 4Plymouth Albion 39, Stirling County 3; Munster A 30, Nottingham 15Munster A will fancy their chances of topping the group and look forward to a trip to Striling to take on the Pool’s whipping boys on Saturday. County — in common with two of the three other Scottish clubs, have yet to win a game in the competition. But if an improving Albion side can take five points from their trip to Meadow Lane, and maintain their superior points difference, Munster would be looking for a runners-up’s spot to progress.No slip-ups: Andy Robinson10-try Bristol brush Aberavon asideBrsitol 64, Aberavon 8; Gala 7, Leeds Carnegie 29Bristol should also qualify as a best runner-up even if they lose to Leeds at Headingley on Saturday. But head coach Andy Robinson’s men, who have been undone by Carnegie at home once already in the GKIPA Championship, will have no intention of slipping up. Leeds were made to work much harder than the score suggests at Netherdale on Saturday. It took three late tries to secure the bonus point and set up a terrific showdown with Bristol at Headingley. Defeat for either side wouldn’t necessarily spell disaster but Carnegie, who now head the Championship table for the first time since 2009, will want to take full bragging rights from the clash.Pirates looking good for play-off pole position.

Welsh travel to Richmond on Saturday knowing that only a bonus point win — and denying their old neighbours one — will definitely see them through.Meanwhile, Ponty entertain the Accies at Sardis Road knowing that an avalanche of points could put them through as either group winners or one of the top-placed runners up.Nine-try Titans have one foot in the quarters SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – OCTOBER 19: Kevin Maggs of Ireland in action during the Rugby World Cup Pool A match between Ireland and Namibia at Aussie Stadium October 19, 2003 in Sydney, Australia.

Russian journalist deprived of his passport and left in legal limbo

first_img to go further Reporters Without Borders condemned an unprecedented sentence against a Russian journalist which it said amounted to systematic legal hounding of an investigative reporter, the sole remaining Western correspondent working in the North Ossetian capital of Vladikavkaz.Yuri Bagrov had a fine of 400 euros upheld on appeal by the North Ossetia administrative court on 19 January for “forgery”, a sentence first handed down by the Leninski municipal court in Vladikavkaz on 17 December 2004.The authorities contested the validity of the passport of the Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty and Associated Press correspondent. He obtained the passport in 2003 to replace his former Soviet passport and now finds himself stripped of his nationality and effectively stateless.”It is simply a case of silencing a journalist who had expressed himself on issues that local journalists do not touch because of the pressure they are under,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation. “Yuri Bagrov, deprived of his passport and of his nationality, now finds himself in legal limbo. If he was threatened with expulsion he would have no country prepared to take him,” it added.”They didn’t give me a chance. The case was held at 4am on 19 January,” Bagrov said. “No witnesses were called and the hearing was over in five minutes.”He now has no other recourse but the North Osssetia Supreme Court and the final authority would be the Russian Supreme Court, but only once the journalist paid the 400-euro fine.Russian authorities began harassing the journalist on 25 August 2004, with an 8am search by officers of the FSB (Russian secret services) of his home, his office and his mother’s flat. They seized a huge quantity of documents, files and computers and confiscated his passport. As a result, Bagrov was unable to travel to Chechnya to cover the 29 August elections or to Beslan during the hostage-taking tragedy from 1-3 September.He was told on 6 October that he was being charged with “forgery” under Article 327 of the criminal code. Bagrov had however received his passport in 2003 after a regional court ruling according him Russian nationality.Local authorities on 29 December ordered Bagrov out of a room in which journalists had gathered for a press conference by the president of North Ossetia.Bagrov had covered stories such as conditions for Chechen refugees, smuggling in the Caucasus and kidnappings in Ingushetia. He studied in Russia and lives there. His mother and wife both have Russian nationality. This should normally be enough to obtain a Russian passport.Reporters Without Borders recently condemned the obstruction of media coverage of the Besland tragedy and voiced its concern at a possible extension throughout the region of the media blackout that is currently in force in Chechnya. Follow the news on Belarus June 2, 2021 Find out more News A court of appeal upheld a verdict of “forgery” against Russian journalist Yuri Bagrov, the sole correspondent for Western media in Vladikavkaz, capital of North Ossetia. The Russian authorities accused him of having obtained a false passport. The verdict means he has now been stripped of his nationality.

First Video-Centric Health Care Site by Patients for Patients Launched by Pasadena Entrepreneur

first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Entrepreneur and former television executive John Symes, who recently launched PatientTalk.com, announced today that the company will donate 50 cents for every video watched during the month of October to celebrate the strong women and men who have survived and are fighting hard to win their battle against breast cancer.PatientTalk.com is the first-ever video centric health care site featuring real patients and prominent medical experts discussing their personal and professional experiences with breast cancer and has produced additional series on obesity, back pain and joint replacements.“PatientTalk.com has very pertinent and important information for breast cancer patients and their families, and we are honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month by contributing 50 cents for every video watched on the site to Pasadena’s Cancer Support Community,” Symes said. “The work that the organization does throughout Southern California and the programs and services they provide regardless of a patient’s ability to pay has been instrumental in the lives of thousands of cancer patients and their families.”All of the breast cancer doctors and medical professionals who appear on patienttalk.com are from Southern California and include Dr. Jeannie Shen, Dr. Leif Rogers and Dr. Ruth Williamson, Dr. Evangelia Kirimis and Dr. Lakshimi Tegulapalle. Other local doctors and medical professionals include Dr. Lawrence Dorr, Dr. Todd Dietrick and physical therapist Karen Truitt Bogaard (joint replacements) and Dr. Robert Watkins III and Dr. Robert Watkins IV (back pain).According to Symes, the goal of PatientTalk.com is to provide people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening and chronic conditions with information about the practical, physical and emotional issues they may face as a result of their diagnosis. PatientTalk.com also provides important information from medical experts in their area of specialty, and allows doctors to explain things in a way they wish they could if they had more time with their patients.The online service currently offers 25 hours of original video content on topics including breast cancer, obesity, back pain and joint replacements. Work is underway to develop several more series that will focus on subjects including migraines, Type 1 diabetes, prostate cancer, acne, fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.Symes expects to produce more than 60 diagnosis series in the next five years, with all content created in-house and distributed exclusively on Patienttalk.com.The inspiration for PatientTalk.com came from Symes’ experience with his wife of 30 years, Meg, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and who now is Director of Special Events at Cancer Support Community.“During this period of anxiety and heightened emotion we sought help through traditional health websites but found they all had essentially the same clinical information,” said Symes. “I saw my wife reach out to her friends and family for advice about their own experiences with breast cancer and how much that helped her through her journey.”Through that experience Symes began to develop the concept for patienttalk.com as a new way to provide practical information for patients. Symes is former president of MGM Worldwide Television and Executive Vice President of Paramount Network Television where he oversaw the production of over 1,500 hours of television programming.Pasadena’s Cancer Support Community provides free services to cancer patients and their family members, including professionally led support groups, educational workshops and mind-body programs.The Patienttalk.com advisory board and early investors include entertainment industry veterans, venture capitalists and medical professionals. Board members include John Reagan entertainment industry attorney, and James V. Mitchell founding partner of Meier Mitchell & Co.PatientTalk.com is a patient-centered, network-quality video website for people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening and chronic diagnoses. The health care site features real patients and medical experts talking about the practical, physical and emotional issues faced during and after treatment.PatientTalk.com was created by John P. Symes, former president of MGM Worldwide Television, and Executive Vice President of Paramount Network Television where he oversaw the production and distribution of more than 5,000 hours of television programming. Symes worked on many shows during his career, including “Cheers,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “MacGyver,” “Family Ties,” Stargate SGI” “Entertainment Tonight” and “Frasier.”For more information about Patient Talk, please visit PatientTalk.com 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

Talapatra and S. G. Chattopadhyay dismissed the said appeal noting,”His wife abandoned him along with their daughter when he lost his vision and was in dire need of their company and the support of his wife.” (emphasis supplied)The background of the caseThe marriage of the appellant-wife and respondent-husband was solemnized on 31.07.2002 as per Hindu rites and customs and a daughter was born from their wed lock on 28.07.2003.The husband being the petitioner in the trial court made several allegations against his respondent-wife, the appellant herein.The matter was also referred to the court-appointed mediator who made efforts for reconciliation. But the parties did not agree to stay together.Husband’s Contentions – According to him, 02 years after their marriage, cancer was diagnosed in one of his eyes and he started losing his eyesight day by day. He had a small business of motor parts at Agartala. As a result of his ailment, he had to close his business.His respondent-wife then started avoiding him and abusing him for his blindness. On 12.01.2007 when the petitioner husband was away from home, his wife left the house along with their daughter for her parental home and never returned back.This apart, she brought false and baseless allegations not only against him but also against his married sister and implicated both of them in a criminal case under Section 498A IPC which according to him amounted to mental cruelty.As a result, the petitioner filed the petition in the Family Court under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 seeking a decree of divorce on the ground of desertion and cruelty which was thereafter granted.Wife’s Contentions – The respondent-wife contested the petition and refuted the allegations made by her petitioner husband against her.According to her, all the allegations made out by her husband were false and baseless. She never deserted her husband. Rather she along with her daughter was ousted from her matrimonial home by her husband.It was averted by the respondent-wife that her alcoholic husband used to abuse her for dowry.She admitted the fact that she lodged a complaint against him and his sister under Section 498A IPC at Agartala Women PS which ended in the conviction and sentence of her husband and his sister.In the appeal, the learned Sessions Judge acquitted her husband and her sister-in-law of the charge. But the appeal was preferred by the state government against the order of their acquittal which was pending in the High Court when she filed her reply in the Divorce Proceeding.According to her, she always tried to live a happy conjugal life with her husband. But there was no response from his side. Rather he treated her with cruelty and ousted her along with her daughter from his home.She, therefore, prayed for dismissal of the petition of her husband seeking divorce.Trials Court’s DecisionThe Trial court, after considering all the evidence and the facts and circumstances of the case, came to the conclusion that the respondent-wife had voluntarily withdrawn herself from the company of her husband on 12.01.2007 without any genuine reason and the couple did not reunite for the last 11 years which amounted to a irretrievable break down of their marriage.It was further held by the learned trial Judge that her allegations of matrimonial cruelty against her husband under Section 498A, IPC was proved to be false in the appeal in the court of Sessions Judge as well as in the High Court.According to the learned trial Judge, the wife respondent brought such false allegations against her husband with a view to harass her husband which amounted to cruelty for the purpose of granting divorce under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act.The Trial Judge dissolved the marriage between the petitioner husband and the respondent-wife by a decree of divorce under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 on the ground of desertion and cruelty which was challenged before the High Court in the present matter.The High Court’s ObservationsThe Court was considering the question as to whether the grounds of cruelty and desertion against the respondent-wife, the appellant herein, existed on the date of filing of the divorce petition, or not.From the pleadings of the parties and the evidence adduced by the parties, the Court couldn’t find any material to come to the conclusion that the respondent wife was ever forced by her petitioner husband to leave his company or that she was thrown away from her matrimonial home.Further, the Court observed that the wife abandoned him on 12.01.2007 in his absence at home without any genuine reason. Thereafter she never resumed her conjugal life with her petitioner husband till the date of filing of the divorce petition or thereafter.The Bench noted that she contested the case of her husband in the divorce proceedings, but she could not embellish the evidence adduced on behalf of her husband.In this context, the court remarked,”The evidence that her husband along with his relatives met her on several occasions and persuaded her to return to her conjugal life is not also denied by the respondent wife. She could not also prove the grounds of her denial to return to her husband. Such a course of conduct of the respondent-wife undoubtedly amounts to desertion for the purpose of seeking divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act.” (emphasis supplied)The Court also took note of the fact that after abandoning her husband, she levelled allegations of harassment for dowry against her husband in a proceeding under Section 498A IPC followed by a proceeding under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.Notably, the Court stated,”In the given case the cumulative effect of the facts and circumstances emerging from the evidence on record lead us to a fair inference that her unprovoked humiliating treatment caused serious mental pain and suffering to her husband which no doubt constitutes cruelty.” (emphasis supplied)Relying on the Tripura High Court’s ruling in the case of Biswanath Baspar v. Jhumarani Ghosh (Baspar) (2015) 1 TLR 649, the Court concluded that if other grounds are made out or the grounds of cruelty or desertion is partly proved, then, if the marriage is dead, the court may take a view of granting the divorce.In the present case, the court observed, cruelty and desertion existed on the date of filing of the divorce petition.Consequently, the Court said,”There is no denial of the fact that the husband and the wife are staying apart for more than 13 years and during this period they never lived together at any point of time. Efforts of the mediator appointed by this court for reconciliation of their relationship also failed. Therefore, we are of the considered view that clearly this is a case of irretrievable breakdown of marriage and it is quite impossible to save the marriage.” (emphasis supplied)In this backdrop of the circumstances, the Court held that the learned trial court was justified in dissolving the marriage by a decree of divorce. The appeal was therefore declared to be devoid of merit and was thereby dismissed.Case Details:Case Title: Aparna Dey v. Alok DeyCase No.: FA No. 01 of 2019Quorum: Justices S. Talapatra and S. G.

This submission by the Telangana Government was made while seeking clarification from the Bench of Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B.Vijaysen Reddy as to whether the Court had, in an earlier order, stayed the registration of Non-Agricultural property throughout the State. Background The Court was hearing pleas raising several concerns related to the Dharani portal and the suspension of registration of non-agriculture properties. The pleas had also questioned the compulsions created under Dharani for people to necessarily upload their property details on to the website along with personal data and information of petitioners and their family members such as caste, Aadhaar number etc. It may be noted that in its 03rd November Order, the High Court had stated that “the State is directed not to insist that any details be filled in the Dharani Portal vis-a-vis the non-agricultural land owned by the people”. Therefore, the State Government was under an impression that by the said order the Court had stayed the registration of Non-Agricultural property throughout the State. The Advocate General further gave an undertaking that the State Government will not insist on submission of Aadhaar Card number or the caste being declared, or on details of the family members and their respective Aadhaar Card numbers. He further prayed that the State be Permitted to register the NA Property under Computer-aided Administration of Registration Department. Court’s Order To this, the Court said, “It is clarified that there was no stay granted by this Court on registration “in toto”. The stay was granted to the extent that the details should not be insisted on to be filled on the Dharani Portal” The Court permitted the State government to register the documents dealing with the non- agricultural lands in compliance with Section 70A to 70C of the Registration Act, 1908 in the Computer Aided Administration of Registration (CARD) format. Further, the Court said that the Government is permitted to direct the people to register for the slot for the registration and only thereafter to register their documents during the time provided by online slot. The Court also directed that in case the PTIN (property tax identification numbers) is not assigned to the ‘NA Property’ the “Government is duty bound to assign the said number within a period of two days and to carry out the registration only thereafter.” Pursuant to this Order, the Minister for Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Industry & Commerce, Information Technology, Government Of Telangana K.T. Rama Rao announced on Twitter that the registration activities of Non-Agricultural properties from would commence from 11th December in accordance with the HC order. Delete It may be noted that as per the report of The New Indian Express, the Telangana government had sought sensitive details, such as Aadhaar number and caste of property holders, as part of its survey for the Dharani portal. Now, this Order of the High Court has, in effect, paved the way for the commencement of the registrations of non-agricultural properties in the state. Case title – Saaketh Kasibhatla, v.
