Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Which items deserve space in your suitcase?Whether it’s business travel, family road tripping or a romantic getaway, exploring new places is exciting. You may be counting down the days until you leave, but if there’s one thing you dread, it’s packing. Deciding what earns a spot in your suitcase is hard enough, let alone figuring out how you can fit it all in.Do you look with envy at savvy jet-setters who seem to navigate airports with ease while only toting a small carry-on? It’s because years of travel experience has taught them some packing tricks that make the process simple. Now you can use these same strategies to pack with ease no matter how near or far you plan to travel.Select double-duty clothing items.Check the weather for your destination so you pack only items appropriate for the forecast. You won’t need that big sunhat if rain is coming. Want to take it one step further? Choose items that multitask. For example, a large scarf can be a stylish accessory and also be used as a blanket on the plane or at the beach.Pack toiletries strategically.If possible, only bring samples and travel sizes of items to save space. Then leave them behind at the end of the trip to open up luggage space to bring home mementos. To avoid luggage spills and explosions, place toiletries in plastic bags or add plastic wrap to the tops before screwing on the cap.Choose time-saving tools.Air drying hair takes forever and hotel hair dyers are often slow and unreliable, so pack a lightweight, folding dryer like the Panasonic EH-NA27-K Nanoe Compact Hair Dryer to streamline your beauty routine. The nanoe technology draws moisture from the air to create moisture-rich ions that penetrate each hair shaft and enhance hair’s smoothness and shine. Need more incentive? The unique Quick-Dry Nozzle is designed to dry hair faster, so you can spend less time getting ready and more time enjoying your vacation.Fold to prevent wrinkling.To prevent wrinkles on delicate items, try wrapping them around soft, bulky items. For example, wrap a silk blouse or cotton trousers around a sweater. Avoid folding clothing any more than necessary. In fact, many people use a rolling method for packing clothes to save space and prevent wrinkles.Utilize odd-shaped items.Shoes take up a ton of luggage space, so strive to select no more than three pairs, and wear the heaviest or bulkiest pair while traveling. Place shoes along the sides or bottom to strengthen the bag and then stash items inside to maximize space (like socks, nylons and deodorant).Eliminate makeup mayhem.Only bring makeup essentials on a vacation and pack multi-use items such as a lipstick that can also be used as a blush. To prevent shadows and pressed powders from cracking, place a pressed cotton pad between the powder and the lid.Grab a few plastic bags.One of the most versatile things you can bring on a trip is also one many people forget: resealable plastic bags. Whether you need a bag for bringing toys down to the pool, a place to put dirty clothes throughout your trip, or something to place that soggy swimsuit in before you check out of the hotel, plastic bags are your secret weapon.

Court rejects early release for jailed newspaper reporter

The request was submitted by his lawyer, Isakhan Ashurov, on 19 December on the grounds that Zahidov has served half of his three-year jail sentence and, under Azerbaijani law, qualifies for early release.“We regret that the Azerbaijani judicial system did not seize this opportunity to release Zahidov and thereby right a wrong without losing face,” Reporters Without Borders said.Zahidov has been detained since 23 June 2006, when he was arrested on trumped-up charges of possessing and using drugs, and his state of health is now a source of great concern. The sentence was imposed in October 2006.Three other journalists are currently in prison in Azerbaijan – Ganimat Zahidov, the editor of Azadlig, Eynulla Fatullayev, the editor of Realny Azerbaijan and Gundelik Azerbaijan, and Mushfig Husseynov of Bizim Yol.

Gandhi Statue Not A Place Of Religious Worship: Karnataka HC Dismisses PIL Against Bar [Read Order]

The Court made this observation while dismissing a Public Interest Litigation filed by one Advocate A V Amarnathan seeking to cancel the licence granted by the State Excise department to Tonique Bar and Restaurant on account of its alleged proximity to a Gandhi Statue.. He claimed that the definition of ‘Religious Institution’ under Sub-rule (3) of Rule of 3 of the Karnataka Excise Licences (General Conditions) Rules, 1967, will have to be considered. He urged the court that as the prayers are offered near the statue of the Father of the Nation, it will have to be held as a ‘religious institution’. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice N S Sanjay Gowda rejected this argument stating : “By no stretch of imagination, we can hold that the statue of the Father of the Nation is a ‘religious institution’. The emphasis in Sub-rule (3) of Rule 3 of said Rules of 1967 is on a place of public religious worship. It is impossible to accept that the statue of the Father of the Nation can be a ‘religious Institution’.” The bench added:”If we look at the thoughts and the views propagated by the Father of the Nation during his lifetime, it is impossible to accept that his statue is a place of public religious worship. The Father of the Nation has a unique place. He was above all religions. He was truly a democrat who never liked human beings being worshipped.” Amarnathan had in his petition claimed that the statue of the Father of the Nation, Bal Bhavan in Cubbon Park, a Church and the Office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police were situated within a distance of 100 meters from the premises of the bar. The second contention was that there is a breach of Rule 5 of the Karnataka Excise Licences (General Conditions) Rules, 1967. However, by order dated July 9, the objections based on the statue of the Father of the Nation and Bal Bhavan were excluded. As regards other objections, a direction was issued to the jurisdictional Tahsildar to carry out the exercise of measuring the distance with the help of a Government Surveyor. Additional Government Advocate Vijaykumar A Patil, filed a memo of compliance which recorded that the distance between the main entrance of the premises of the restaurant and the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police through the footpath is 126.50 meters. Secondly, it was stated that the distance between the main entrance of the fifth respondent and the entrance gate of St. Martha’s Church is 144.00 meters. On Monday, the petitioner also relied upon Subrule (2-A) of Rule 5 of the said Rules of 1967. However, the bench said “The petitioner has not pleaded in the petition that in view of Sub-rule (2-A) of Rule 5 of the said Rules of 1967, the application for licence of the fifth respondent ought to have been rejected.” The bench concluded by saying “As we find that there is no merit in any of the objections raised by the petitioner, it is not necessary to go into the question of locus of the petitioner. Accordingly, we find that there is no merit in the petition and the same is rejected.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Rampant Misuse Of Criminal Justice System calls For Interventionist Approach From Supreme Court

A hands-off approach is no good and, in fact, seems to be encouraging those who want to take advantage of the law to inconvenience anyone who is perhaps an annoyance to them. I refer to the spate of First Information Reports (FIRs) filed by different people in different parts of the country so that the accused is harassed and made to run from one state to another and from one court to another.Let’s consider a few examples of the recent past. A broadcast on the R Bharat channel on April 21, 2020 led to a handful of FIRs and criminal complaints against its owner-editor Arnab Goswami in Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Jharkhand and in the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir. Incidentally (and it hardly matters for the purposes of my submission) the complaints were in identical terms and, as noted by the SC, the language, content and sequencing of paragraphs and their numbering is identical.Goswami had two options before him: first, to challenge the FIRs and contest the complaints in these states and Union Territories and second, to approach the SC to transfer all the FIRs and complaints to one convenient court or police station, preferably near his place of residence. The accused chose to approach the Supreme Court, but for a variety of other reliefs. However, the SC decided to transfer one of the FIRs (filed on April 22 in Nagpur) to Mumbai, where Goswami ordinarily resides. The SC quashed the remaining FIRs and complaints on the ground that multiple FIRs and complaints cannot be filed in respect of the same incident. Reliance was placed on earlier decisions of the SC in this regard. Those decisions did not deal with multiple complaints filed by different aggrieved persons, but it hardly matters for the present purposes.The consequences of this decision are two-fold: first, those who had filed criminal complaints against Goswami are left high and dry, their complaints having been quashed. On a reading of the decision of the SC, it is not clear whether the complainants were parties before the SC and were heard. Perhaps the most aggrieved would be the first complainant, who filed his complaint on April 21 in Chhattisgarh and therefore, on the reasoning of the SC, subsequent FIRs and complaints filed in Nagpur and other places on April 22 ought to have been quashed and not his complaint. Second, the harassment that Goswami was likely to face has been staved off – good for him.In the case of another TV anchor, Amish Devgan, he hosted a program on June 15, 2020 after which seven FIRs were filed against him in Rajasthan, Telangana, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. The first FIR was filed in Ajmer, Rajasthan. Devgan, a resident of Noida, Uttar Pradesh petitioned the SC challenging the FIRs and alternatively praying that the FIRs be clubbed together and transferred to Ajmer where the first FIR was filed. However, it appears from a reading of the decision of the SC that during oral submissions, it was prayed that the FIRs be clubbed and transferred to NOIDA or Delhi.The SC first directed the impleadment of the ‘complainants’ so that they could be heard in the matter. But more interestingly, the SC did not follow the decision in Goswami’s case and declined to quash the subsequent FIRs. The reason proffered was that those who had filed the subsequent FIRs would be deprived of their right to file a protest petition in case the investigation revealed that no offence was made out. Therefore, the subsequent ‘complainants’ were not left high and dry, and advisedly so. The prayer by Devgan to transfer the FIRs to Ajmer was accepted.The reprieve for Goswami and partial reprieve for Devgan was possible only because they had the financial resources and logistical capacity to petition the SC. Does an average citizen have these resources? Consider the example of an exuberant student or an unemployed youth who says or tweets something that a handful of people across the country find obnoxious (or doesn’t say anything, like the comedian Munawar Faruqui). FIRs and complaints are then filed against that student or youth in six or seven states in all corners of the country, including one in Zunheboto, Nagaland, another in Lachung, Sikkim, a third in Vellarada, in Kerala and a fourth in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan and a few others thrown in for good measure in some other districts.What can the student or unemployed youth do? Surely, she does not have the capacity to have a Bharat Darshan and convince the court or authorities of her innocence or absence of bad intention (mens rea). Approaching the SC? Not easy at all – it requires finances and pestering the Registry for listing the case. Then there is the recent trend in the SC that appears to suggest that the aggrieved litigant should first petition the concerned high court. So, the student or youth is left either defenceless or asked to fend for herself.What next? The police will summon her to join investigations. She has no option but to ignore the summons, and then the police will come to her house to arrest her. The student or youth will eventually end up as a statistic in the files of the National Crime Records Bureau. By any chance, did you hear Mr Bumble say “… the law is a ass – a idiot.”So, if the law is “a ass – a idiot” what can the SC do about it? Isn’t it parliament’s job to legislate and plug loopholes in the legislation? If parliament doesn’t do so, that’s just too bad and so be it.The cheque bouncing casesBut the SC has faced a somewhat similar situation on an earlier occasion when cheque bouncing cases hobbled the justice delivery system. I recall having met a judicial officer in the State Judicial Academy who told me that he had 1,25,000 cheque bouncing cases pending in his court! Maybe a severe case of exaggeration, but he certainly had (like many other judicial officers) much, much more than he could handle. Some intrepid creditors realised that it would be difficult to get a summon issued to a debtor in some of these courts. So, they opened bank accounts in out of the way places or sent notices from out of the way places so that they could invoke the territorial jurisdiction of the local court that had a comparatively lesser number of pending cases and thereby not only get an early hearing but also greatly inconvenience the debtor.In the 2014 decision in Dashrath Rupsingh Rathod, the SC noted some interesting conclusions from a 2008 decision in Harman Electronics. It was noted by the SC that the provision of law (section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act) is being “rampantly misused so far as territorial jurisdiction for trial of the complaint is concerned.” The artful creditors had taken their strategy to a new level and to further inconvenience the debtor, they had adopted a stratagem of filing complaints against the same person for different bounced cheques in different parts of the country. The SC noted this:”Harman, in fact, duly heeds the absurd and stressful situation, fast becoming common-place where several cheques signed by the same drawer are presented for encashment and requisite notices of demand are also despatched from different places.”This was described by the SC as “manipulative abuse of territorial jurisdiction [which] has become a recurring and piquant factor.” As it is the debtors did not have the finances, in many cases, to pay off the creditors. Therefore, their ability to approach the doors of the SC was virtually non-existent.In this background, what did the SC do? It took a pragmatic approach to the problem, considered the devious manipulations of the creditors and the harassment caused to small people who unfortunately could not pay their debts and concluded that the law must be interpreted to mean that “The territorial jurisdiction is restricted to the Court within whose local jurisdiction the offence was committed, which in the present context is where the cheque is dishonoured by the bank on which it is drawn.” QED.Today, we have similar FIRs filed against respected journalists like Mrinal Pande, Rajdeep Sardesai and several others in UP, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi for tweets that blamed police firing for the unfortunate death of a protestor on Republic Day. The tweet originated in Delhi. Shouldn’t the alleged offence be investigated in Delhi where it took place instead of some other city? What happens if someone in Bihar decides to file an FIR against them in Patna? Are they expected to troop down to Bihar and other states for investigations on being summoned by the police? If they don’t ‘join’ the investigations, there is a possibility that the police from UP and Bihar might give them a midnight knock. This is not beyond the realm of possibility – the police from these two states have been known to visit Mumbai for making arrests.Similarly, a member of parliament, Shashi Tharoor is facing allegations of sedition in three states and Delhi for a tweet about the death of the protestor. If he had said the same thing in parliament and not on Twitter, his speech would have been constitutionally protected – sedition or no sedition. It’s a rather anomalous situation.Incidentally, The Wire sought to get to the bottom of this incident, but did not give its conclusion in a report published on January 30. It noted that the grandfather of the deceased (and the father) had alleged that the deceased had a bullet injury, but the doctors who conducted the post mortem were unable to clearly say so. The Delhi Police version as also the view of the UP police was a part of the write-up. Based on this report, Siddharth Varadarajan of The Wire tweeted the statement made on the record by the grandfather of the deceased. Surprisingly, the UP police filed an FIR against him alleging the possibility of a law and order problem in Rampur district (the residence of the deceased). Again, somewhat surprisingly, the UP police does not seem to have proceeded against the grandfather and father of the deceased – I hope they don’t. No action has been taken – and rightly so – by the Delhi police against the author of the original article, Varadarajan and the grandfather and father of the deceased.The tweet was given out from Delhi, so why should the police of some other state file an FIR? I do understand and appreciate that the state which feels the impact of something offensive has territorial jurisdiction to register an offence. However, that principle has and can be abused, as it was in the cheque bouncing cases. I would submit, therefore, the Supreme Court must be interventionist and lay down the law on this subject should anyone of the aggrieved journalists or Tharoor file a petition in the SC. The law is meant to provide justice and not to harass citizens, and if it does so, it must either be struck down or read down to a more pragmatic interpretation. There is an interventionist precedent and it would be good if it is followed.This article was first published in The Wire.in(Madan B.

(Messenger Staff… read more ‘Yellow Dot’ program seeks to save lives By The Penny Hoarder Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen The Troy Woman’s Club is participating in the “Yellow Dot Program” and is encouraging others to consider doing the same.Detective Michael O’Hara of the Troy Police Department set up shop Thursday at the Courtyard and took photographs of the club members who wanted to participate in the program. He and his wife, Kassie, assisted them with completing the necessary forms and then put the yellow dots on the back windshields of their cars.O’Hara said the Yellow Dot Program is the joint effort of citizens and first responders working together to preserve the “Golden Hour” of emergency care. Also, there are times when an accident occurs and there is no one around to identify the victim so it takes time to notify family members.A Yellow Dot on the back windshield of a vehicle can make a difference when an accident occurs and participation in the program is simple and it is free.Ann McSwean, Troy Woman’s Club president, said she was only recently made aware of the Yellow Dot Program and its benefits.“Detective O’Hara came to our last club meeting and told us about the Yellow Dot Program and how important it can be when an automobile accident happens,” McSwean said. “He came back Thursday to take our pictures and get us involved in the program.” Latest Stories McSwean said the club members realize the value of the Yellow Dot Program and are proud to be able to be a part of making the program known in the Pike County area.The Yellow Dot Program is the first of its kinds in Alabama. The program is a cooperative effort among the law enforcement officers, emergency medical services, fire departments and senior centers.“We do make the program available at senior centers but the Yellow Dot Program is for all ages,” O’Hara said. “Anyone can be involved in a vehicle accident so the information the Yellow Dot Program provides can be of great importance no matter the age.“So, we encourage Pike County citizens to signup today for them and their families.”Those who are interested in participating in the Yellow Dot Program may sign up at the sponsoring Pike County Sheriff’s Department, the Troy Police Department, the Troy Fire Department, the Troy University Police Department and the Brundidge Police Department. ADECA/LETS is also a sponsor of the program. Published 10:59 pm Thursday, August 11, 2011 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell “The Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens during automobile accidents when they might not be able to communicate for themselves,” O’Hara said. “The one hour following an injury is often critical. And, there are times when an accident victim cannot communicate for himself or herself. That’s when the Yellow Dot is so important.” A first responder, who is knowledgeable of the Yellow Dot Program, will know to look in the glove compartment of the vehicle to find information about the victim that can be critical during that first hour.The information packet will include a photograph of the person, which will be used for identification, their name, address, the phone number of the person to contact in case of an emergency, medical history, allergies, medications and dosage taken and name of personal physician and preferred hospital.“Without this information available at the site of the accident, valuable time can be lost while waiting to get this vital information,” O’Hara said.
