The San Francisco Labor Council passed the resolution below on July 8, stating that it “is opposed to the Trump administration taking military action against Iran,” and urged the California Federation of Labor and the AFL-CIO to endorse the resolution. Recent events underline the importance of organized labor speaking out against a U.S. war against Iran – and demanding sanctions be lifted, not tightened.Whereas, Iran does not possess a nuclear weapon; andWhereas, Iran has a right, according to international law, to develop nuclear energy for civilian use; andWhereas, the United States possesses thousands of nuclear warheads in its stockpile; andWhereas, the U.S. military budget and weapons of war far surpass Iran’s; andWhereas, the United States and Britain used severe economic sanctions and CIA covert operatives to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran led by Dr. Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953. The Iranian government under Mosaddegh had nationalized the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC), which became known as British Petroleum (BP), in a campaign to use oil profits to eradicate widespread poverty within Iran. The successful CIA and British Intelligence coup d’etat put the Shah of Iran (King) back in power. The Shah’s dictatorship denationalized Iranian oil and returned it to the ownership of British and U.S. oil companies. The Shah executed and tortured thousands of people during his 26-year bloody reign, which ended in the 1979 revolution that created the Islamic Republic of Iran; andWhereas, the United States severed diplomatic relations with Iran and has pursued a policy of economic sanctions against the country since the overthrow of the U.S.- backed Shah; andWhereas, Iran was invaded by the U.S. backed Iraq regime under Sadam Hussein suffering several hundred thousand casualties and immense damage to its economy and infrastructure; andWhereas, Iran’s oil reserves are the fourth largest in the world second only to Saudi Arabia in the Middle East; andWhereas, the economic sanctions against Iran include a ban on the import, sale and trade of Iranian oil, and forbid any company in the world that does any business with Iran or its Central Bank from having any trade or economic transaction with a U.S. bank or corporation; andWhereas, people throughout the world view U.S. economic sanctions as unjustified intervention and economic terrorism and those sanctions are causing great suffering in Iran and depriving the Iranian people of the goods and services to sustain life. People throughout the world, including experts in international law, view these economic sanctions as a blockade or an act of war against Iran; andWhereas, President Trump has recently issued grave threats of military action, including that “all options are on the table;” andWhereas, a war with Iran would be devastating to both the Iranian people and the people of the world;Therefore Be it Resolved that the SFLC is opposed to the Trump administration taking military action against Iran, and urges its affiliates, members and supporters to demand that Congress assert its Constitutional power by taking necessary measures to avert war and to promote and pursue diplomatic, not military, solutions to any disputes with Iran, andBe it Finally Resolved that SFLC will submit this resolution to our Congressional representatives, to the California Federation of Labor for endorsement at its convention, and to the AFL-CIO.Adopted by the San Francisco Labor Council on July 8, 2019.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Previous articleKenny Hill named as starting quarterback for 2016 seasonNext articleTCU volleyball picking up where it left off Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printComing off its second-best season in program history, TCU volleyball is eyeing a deep NCAA Tournament run. The Horned Frogs kick off their season Friday against North Carolina State.Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer said she likes the way her team looks. She said the team is healthy, blocking well and has bulked up its non-conference schedule.“They put a lot of work in and preparation,” Kramer said. “They all trust and believe in one another and that’s what it takes to get things done. I believe we have to people to do that this year.”Last season, the team was ranked as the seventh-best blocking team in the country.“We only have three players under six feet on the team, but blocking isn’t always about size,” Kramer said. “We spend time on teaching girls to read the game well and that is what a lot of blocking is about.”Outside hitter Ashley Smith, one of six players to be named unanimously to the Preseason All-Big 12, is coming off knee surgery.But Kramer said that Smith’s injury might have actually helped her become a more complete player. She said while recovering, Smith focused on aspects of her game that she didn’t need her knee for — like loosening her arm swing and her passing platform.“Ashley’s stronger in her core, which directly affects her arm swing, that’s the biggest thing I’ve seen, and her passing platform was already good, but she’s been able to improve her platform and her court vision,” Kramer said.The team’s most important position, setter, is still in play. Last season, senior Alexia Heist and sophomore Kaylee Smith split time at the position, yielding positive results. This season, Smith is in the hunt to be the top setter, but faces new competition from junior Lamprini Konstantinidou.Konstantinidou followed Kramer from West Virginia and sat out all of last season due to the NCAA transfer rules. She is also the setter for the junior Greek national team.In addition to N.C. State, the Horned Frogs non-conference schedule includes University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Duke University.“Now, I know this team really well and they’re hungry and ready for the challenge,” Kramer said. “I don’t see them backing them down from anyone.”The 2016 TCU volleyball recruiting class is ranked No. 15 according to the Top 30 Collegiate Recruiting Classes that was released by PrepVolleyball.com, which marks the first time in program history that TCU’s incoming recruiting class is ranked.Fans are also a key part of the team’s success. TCU sold out all but one home game last season; that was the best attendance in the Big 12 and one of the best in the nation.“We had Penn State’s head coach here, Russ Rose, doing a coach’s clinic with us over the summer,” Kramer said. “He said, ‘I’m never bringing my team to come play here, this is one of the toughest places to play in the country.’”First serve against the Wolfpack is 7 p.m Friday in the TCU Recreation Center.

The Frogs had played three games (UAPD, Purdue, SMU) by this time a year ago. Now, head coach Gary Patterson and his team will dive into uncharted waters–starting the season against a conference opponent at the end of September.“It’s been an interesting process,” Patterson said. “In almost 40 years, I’m not sure if I’ve ever had to go through anything like this.”The Frogs’ season opener against SMU was postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases among the team and staff. Despite this, Patterson said his team has remained locked in and “ready to go.”“We’re all itching to play,” wide receiver Taye Barber said. “We haven’t been able to play so I know we’re all ready to get back on the field.”Read more: Students react to the postponed Battle for the Iron Skillet Iowa State already has a game under their belt. The Cyclones opened the season with a surprising loss to unranked Louisiana, 31-14. Despite the Cyclone loss, Patterson sees the fact that they have already played a game as an advantage heading into conference play.“They’re [Iowa State] a good football team,” Patterson said. “They’ve already played a game, but they’ve had two weeks to fix what they thought they had wrong and get better and used to it.”Read More: Game Day in Fort WorthA new quarterback TCU will not be starting Max Duggan at quarterback on Saturday. Duggan started the final 10 games for the Frogs in 2019 and was the expected starter heading into this season. In August, the sophomore was ruled out indefinitely due to a heart condition revealed by a COVID-19 test, putting Georgia transfer Matthew Downing up to bat at quarterback. Though he will be active, TCU will have to start their season without quarterback Max Duggan (15). (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Patterson announced Monday that Duggan was cleared to play and back to practicing, but he said Downing would still be the starter for Saturday’s game.Downing completed eight passes for 88 yards in a backup role at Georgia in 2018. Patterson said he has been showing improvement with the first-team offense and is “fired up” to play on Saturday.“He has that confidence,” Barber said of Downing. “No matter who is back there [at quarterback], it’s not going to make a difference. We all prepare the same. We’re all teammates. We’ve got each other’s backs.”Duggan is also expected to see time against the Cyclones.Offensive expectations Regardless of who is under center for TCU, they should have good protection and plenty of weapons around them. Patterson said the offensive line that is returning just two starters (Coy McMillon and Austin Meyers) has made strides over the course of fall camp.TCU’s depth chart, released Wednesday, revealed that sophomore Estaban Avila had beaten out McMillon for the starting center job.As far as offensive weapons go, the Frogs’ running back core is perhaps their most up-and-coming position group. Though it is young, the group is filled with explosive talent.“We’ve got five good running backs,” Barber said. “Anybody can get in the game and run hard and give us what we want. We’ll just have to see come Saturday, because we have five of them.”The group includes junior Emari Demercado (75 career carries for 289 yards), redshirt freshmen Darwin Barlow and Daimarqua Foster, and freshmen Zach Evans and Kendre Miller.The Frogs’ versatile ground game should test a Cyclones run defense that gave up just 118 rushing yards to the Ragin’ Cajuns in their season opener.“They try to allow you not to have big plays,” Patterson said. “They really, in the front that they play, they really play the run very well.”At wide receiver, Barber and Pro Wells lead the pack for TCU after the loss of now-Philadelphia Eagle Jalen Reagor. Receiver Taye Barber (4) makes a tough catch against Texas in 2019. (Cristian ArguetaSoto/Staff Photographer)Barber, who was the team’s leading receiver over the final seven games in 2019, also had high praise about what Nebraska transfer JD Spielman’s presence has brought to practice.“He [Spielman] ups everybody’s game with what he does at practice,” Barber said. “He’s a great football player. I’m just so glad he’s at TCU. We can do so many things on the offensive side with him on our team.”Wells caught five touchdowns in 2019 playing tight end. With his move to wideout, Artayvious Lynn will start at tight end for the Frogs.All of these pieces will be crucial in improving a TCU offense that struggled in 2019, especially in the redzone.“We need to score more points,” Patterson said. “We need to be more up tempo and do the things we need to do, because we have some guys that can really run.”TCU scored just 22 points per game in Big 12 losses last season.Defense looks to veteran leadership On defense, the Frogs will have to stop Cyclones quarterback Brock Purdy if they want to win. Despite a poor game in Iowa State’s season opener (145 yards, interception), he remains one of the Big 12’s most dangerous passers. He threw for 3982 and 27 touchdowns in 2019, including 247 yards and two scores against TCU.To limit Purdy, the Frogs will need strong play and leadership from veterans Garrett Wallow and Tre Moehrig, both of whom made the Preseason All-Big 12 team.Both schools will test for COVID-19 on Friday, with the results holding the weight of whether the game can be played. If it is, 12,000 fans will be allowed into Amon G. Carter Stadium, as TCU begins the task of playing football in a pandemic.“It’s definitely a situation where we’ve said ‘We’re all we need,’” Patterson said. “You have to bring your own energy. [You’re] not going to have as many people in the stands, so you have to love to play the game.”The Frogs and the Cyclones kick off in Fort Worth at 12:30 p.m. ReddIt Linkedin + posts ReddIt Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Colin Post Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Facebook Previous articleTCU News Now 9/23/2020Next articleThe Skiff: Sept. 24, 2020 Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello

The Part casts a non-binding obligation on the government, to promote and achieve certain objectives mentioned therein. The debate and furore over protection of cattle, implementation of the Uniform Civil Code and recognizing labour rights, all have their genesis in Part IV. Interestingly, Article 47 of the Chapter also obligates the government to prohibit consumption of intoxicating drinks/liquor. This particular principle has given India not only various prohibition laws enacted in furtherance but also, some interesting court room humour. In the present post, I shall discuss some interesting court room stories that transpired, when the Bar and Bench debated upon issues of intoxicating drinks. The first story dates back to the late 19th century and involves Sir Rashbehary Ghose, an eminent advocate and doyen of the Calcutta Bar. Ghose was appearing in a case before the District Judge, who was infamous for smoking on the Bench. All efforts of the Bar, to point out the inappropriateness of such a conduct had failed. Finally, it fell upon Ghose, the Bar’s leader to intervene. During a hearing, Ghose carried a bottle of liquor with him to Court. When the Judge lit his cigarette, Ghose poured a drink into the glass. Taken aback, the Judge asked him ‘What are you doing Sir Rashbehary?’, to which he responded ‘And what is Your Honour doing?’. Realizing his mistake, the Judge threw the cigarette and said ‘out it goes’ to which Ghose responded ‘In it goes’ and consumed the drink. The most famous courtroom exchange concerning intoxicating drinks involves legendary names like Justice Chagla, Shri Motilal Setalvad and the ever-jovial Shri CK Daphtary. In fact, it is said of Daphtary that there is hardly a courtroom in the Supreme Court and some High Courts which has no story to narrate of a witty and lively remark made by him. In 1949, the Morarji Desai led Bombay government passed the Bombay Prohibition Act which enforced prohibitions on liquor. The Act was challenged before a Bench of Chief Justice Chagla, Justice Tendolkar and Justice Gajendragadkar at the Bombay High Court. As Daphtary was the state’s Advocate General it fell upon him to defend the government. Interestingly, Daphtary himself enjoyed his drinks and had no heart in defending the law. The Act was upheld but certain provisions were struck down. An appeal was filed before the Supreme Court and Attorney General for India MC Setalvad appeared for the state of Bombay. Setalvad was assisted by Daphtary. The case concerned alcoholic drinks and ‘pegs’ whereas Setalvad was a teetotaller. During the arguments, Justice Sastri asked Setalvad what was a ‘peg’ and ‘liqueurs’, to which Setalvad responded that Daphtary was better equipped with these matters and would respond to the Judge’s question. Daphtary rose and answered all the questions, amidst laughter in the court room. (State of Bombay v. F.N. Balsara, AIR 1951 SC 318). In the backdrop, during a Bar function to celebrate India’s First Republic Day, Daphtary had humorously remarked that our republic without a pub was only a relic. It is believed this was in presence of Morarji Desai, who had strong views on prohibition. Another senior lawyer, Shri Ram Jethmalani had responded to Desai’s call for prohibition on consumption of liquor by stating, ‘Morarji Bhai I drink alcohol only occasionally, but now I will drink it regularly to keep my right to drink alive’. A couple of years later, when Morarji Desai resigned as the Prime Minister due to lack of support, Jethmalani stated, ‘Morarji Bhai have you realised that all those people who betrayed you were teetotallers.’ Even in the year 2018 eminent lawyer Harish Salve and Shri Tushar Mehta (then Additional Solicitor General) had an interesting exchange during the hearings concerning the release of the movie Padmaavat. Salve was attempting to argue that artists should be allowed to distort history, to which Mehta responded that one can’t do that, as Mahatma Gandhi can’t be shown sipping whiskey. Salve quickly responded, by stating that showing Gandhi sipping whiskey wouldn’t be distorting history. It was common for the Bar & Bench to share a laugh in the earlier times. Our nation’s legal history is replete with examples where at times Judges were schooled by senior lawyers and vice versa. Such exchanges were taken in the right spirit and promoted the harmony between the two bodies. While the Directive Principle under Article 47 might not have given us complete prohibition on liquor, it definitely gave us some laughs in form of the courtroom exchanges that ensued.Views are personal only.(The article was first published on the author’s personal blog The ‘Basic’ Structure.

A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, MR Shah and Sanjiv Khanna will be pronouncing the verdict.The petitioners seek the extension of the 6-month period moratorium on loan recoveries, which was announced by the Reserve Bank on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.Reserve Bank of India issued a Notification dated 27.03.2020 to permit banks and financial institutions to grant a moratorium of 03 months on payments of all instalments of term loans falling due between March 1st 2020 and May 31st, 2020. This period was later extended by another 3 months till August 31, 2020.The petitioners had initially sought extension of the moratorium up to December 31. One of the Petitioners, Advocate Vishal Tiwari, later sought extension upto March 31, 2021, stating that the current situation demands and necessitates the same.On November 19, the Centre had urged the Court to not intervene and provide further relief to borrowers under Article 32 as the Government was already “on top of it”.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the Court that many relief packages and schemes had been worked out with technical experts and the intervention of the Court in fiscal policy issues was uncalled for.On November 28, 2020, a bench led by Justice Ashok Bhushan had disposed of another set of pleas which sought for the waiver of interest during the 6 month loan moratorium period. The bench, also comprising Justices R Subhash Reddy and MR Shah, directed the Centre to implement the decision taken by the Centre to forego interest for 8 specified categories up to Rs 2 crores.The categories in which the Centre and the RBI agreed to waive compound interest during the loan moratorium period are :(i) MSME loans up to Rs. 2 crore(ii) Education loans up to Rs. 2 crore(iii) Housing loans up to Rs. 2 crore(iv) Consumer durable loans up to Rs. 2 crore(v) Credit card dues up to Rs. 2 crore(vi) Automobile loans up to Rs. 2 crore(vii) Personal loans to professionals up to Rs. 2 crore(viii) Consumption loans up to Rs. 2 crore Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Pembroke Pines Police Department(MIAMI) — A South Florida police officer recently displayed his musical prowess while responding to a 911 call of an elderly man who had suffered from a bad fall.The Pembroke Pines Police officer of six years, who requested to be identified as only Officer Hernandez, told ABC News he sat down at the piano for the man’s overwhelmed daughter.Hernandez, 30, was participating in a community patrol in Spring Valley last month when he heard a 911 call come in over the radio. Once he got to the home, he discovered that not only had the man in his 90s fallen, but his health was “doing really bad” in general, he said.“I guess that’s why I did the whole piano thing,” Hernandez said, adding that he could tell the man’s daughter, who is in her 60s, was “struggling with her elderly parents.”Hernandez then pointed to the white baby grand piano in the family’s home, asking if they would mind if he played.“And we started jamming out” to songs like Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” as well as some classical and jazz music for about 10 minutes, Hernandez said. A firefighter on the scene recorded a video as others in the room sang along.And it turns out, Hernandez’s method to calm the situation worked. Shortly after he started playing, the couple’s daughter, who the piano belongs to, then stood to Hernandez’s right and accompanied him with some duet work, he said.Hernandez, who is the lead pianist at his church, began playing around the age of 6, he said. The Miami Lakes resident is self-taught and also plays the guitar and drums.Depending on the type of call, he’ll often ask permission to play when spotting musical instruments around a home, he said.“It usually makes people feel better,” Hernandez said. “They see a police officer in uniform perform something cool, they get all excited.”At home, Hernandez plays a 7-foot black grand Kimball piano, a present he bought himself after working 72 hours straight during Hurricane Irma in 2017.“As soon as the whole relief effort ended, I went ahead and purchased that piano,” he said.While Hernandez has not paid much attention to the praise he’s getting on social media after the police department posted the video to its Facebook page, he said he’s happy the video is promoting law enforcement in a positive light.“It definitely helps that people have a better view of our purpose,” he said. “…We’re human. We have talents. We have family. We’re just like everyone else, but doing a job that no one likes to do.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
