The direction has been made in the backdrop of a PIL filed by practicing Advocate of the High Court, Anuj Bansal, seeking implementation of the video conferencing guidelines issued by the High Court on July 7, 2018. As per guideline number 1.4 contained therein: “Video conferencing facilities can be used in all matters including remands, bail applications and in civil and criminal trials where a witness is located intrastate, interstate, or overseas. However, these guidelines will not apply to proceedings under section 164 of Cr.P.C.” The same becomes relevant in context to the incumbent Covid crisis and gradual shift from open court proceedings to Virtual hearings. While disposing of the PIL on July 14, a division comprised of Chief Justice RS Jha and Justice Arun Palli ordered the state Governments to “examine the issue and thereafter, if necessary or in case some instance of violation is found, to take necessary action and steps.” In the interregnum, the Registrar General has addressed a letter to all the Sessions Divisions requesting them to take adequate safety measures like glass/ other see through partition, regular sanitization of the room, etc. in consultation with the authorities to ensure that in the event of an accused testing positive subsequently, there may not be any requirement to quarantine the Judicial Officers, staff, family members, etc. Recently, the Kerala High Court had instructed that production of an accused before the Magistrates and Special Judges in the state will be done via electronic means only, to prevent the spread of Covid infection in the court premises. It had directed the State Police Chief to ensure that an accused is produced before the Magistrates through electronic video linkage facility, even where the production is for the first time.

first_imgLos Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker reacts against the Minnesota Lynx in the second half of a single elimination WNBA basketball playoff game, Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2018, in Los Angeles. The Sparks won 75-68. (Keith Birmingham/The Orange County Register via AP)LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chelsea Gray scored 26 points, helping the Los Angeles Sparks beat the defending champion Minnesota Lynx 75-68 Tuesday night to advance to the second round of the WNBA playoffs.It was the fourth straight year Los Angeles and Minnesota have met in an elimination playoff game — with each team winning the past two WNBA championships. The Lynx hadn’t been eliminated in the first round since 2004.After Minnesota’s Maya Moore missed two free throws with 1:56 remaining, Gray sank a long jumper to extend Los Angeles’ lead to 70-65. Minnesota turned it over on its next possession and Nneka Ogwumike hit two free throws.Temi Fagbenle made an open corner 3-pointer to pull Minnesota to 72-68 with 52.4 seconds to go, but Moore was off on a contested 3-pointer on the next possession and Ogwumike sealed it at the free-throw line.Sixth-seeded Los Angeles (20-15) will play at No. 3 seed Washington on Thursday.Ogwumike added 19 points for Los Angeles and Riquna Williams scored 17. Candace Parker, who averages nearly 18 points, was held to two.Gray and Ogwumike combined to score 23 of Los Angeles’ 25 second-quarter points. The Sparks closed the half on a 15-3 run for a 40-37 lead.Sylvia Fowles had 18 points and 12 rebounds for her 21st playoff double-double for seventh-seeded Minnesota (18-17). Fagbenle scored a career-high 15 points and Moore added 14.Four-time WNBA champion Lindsay Whalen, who announced her retirement last week, scored nine points in her final game.Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook sat courtside, as did Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo.last_img read more

Have the current offenses passed up Steelers DC Keith Butler? (Sept. 19)

first_imgSTEELERS ROOKIE SAFETY TERRELL EDMUNDS missed a number of tackles in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, 42-37, Sept. 16. (Photos by Courier photographer Brian Cook)The Kansas City Chiefs massacred the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Steelers’ house on Sept. 16, 42-37. There are all types of blame to spread around but let’s start with the kicking game. On several occasions, Steelers punter Jordan Berry gift-wrapped the Chiefs excellent field position, giving them a very short field to exploit a questionable Black and Gold defense. More on the “McNasty” Steelers defense later.Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt punted twice for an average of 47 yards per punt. His opponent that was wearing “black and yellow,” Jordan Berry, punted five times for a net of 31.6.When the opposing punter outkicks you by a 15-yard average, that automatically gives any opposing offense an advantage, especially when the defense is “suspect.” The punt return blocking for the Steelers special teams was atrocious—the Steelers only returned one punt for a measly six yards, while the Chiefs brought back two punts for 54 yards. This lackluster effort seemed as if the offense, defense and special teams of Pittsburgh was “plumb tuckered out,” maybe from the maximum effort they had to put forth just to exit FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland the Sunday before, which, as you know, resulted in a tie of all things.Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers can no longer “start slow” because with Pittsburgh’s questionable defense, the Steelers will become “ketchup” at Heinz Field or any other field as opposed to “catching up” if the Steelers happen to land in a hole. As far as I am concerned, with Steelers star cornerback Joe Haden injured and less than 100 percent, any opposing offensive coordinator can spread the ball around without too much concern. When Haden is in the lineup, teams must game plan for his presence at all times. Also, teams will more often than not shy away from him.In 2017, the defensive scheme of Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler didn’t end up as bad as everyone thought it would. Pittsburgh was ranked fifth in total defense and surrendered an average of 201 passing yards and 105 rushing yards per game.Not too shabby for a team that was and remains in the process of rebuilding but almost always teetering on the precipice of failure because of youth and inexperience. But they have grown. If not for five turnovers in their 2018 season opener and lousy kicking in their home opener, who knows? Pittsburgh could and should be 2-0 as opposed to 0-1-1.Butler should go back to the drawing board, look at some defensive film from the Steelers defensive past and rip a few pages out of the “Nasty D” playbook as opposed to the “McNasty” playbook. The “Nasty D” playbook imposes their will on the offense of the opposition. The 2018 Steelers defense comes from a lineage that was once esoteric. Now Pittsburgh’s “McNasty D” is simply generic and predictable, running prevent and cover-two hybrid defensive schemes that only prevents them from being successful. Letting opposing offenses “have it their way.”Keith Butler was once thought of as the “heir apparent” to former Steelers Hall-of-Fame defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. Instead, Mr. Butler, like the “prodigal son,” has squandered away the rich Steelers defensive inheritance and legacy left to him by Mr. LeBeau and others, both alive and dead. It seems as if just in the recent past, folks were pining about Dick LeBeau and how he hadn’t adapted his defenses to modern offensive playbooks and how offenses had passed him by.Have the current offenses passed up Keith Butler as well?(Aubrey Bruce: [email protected]) Like us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierlast_img read more

World Cup Diary: A’ja Wilson talks playing in the World Cup

first_imgJulie Allemand of the Belgian jumps to basket against A’Ja Wilson of the United States during the Women’s basketball World Cup semi final match between Belgium and the U.S.A. in Tenerife, Spain, Saturday Sept. 29, 2018. (AP Photo Andres Gutierrez) SAN CRISTOBAL DE LA LAGUNA, Spain (AP) — Here we are on the morning of the gold medal game and it’s been quite the experience so far. It’s been a joy to have the opportunity to play and compete against the best in the world and I’ve been capitalizing on every moment I’ve had here. I’ve enjoyed watching the games and playing in them and being with my teammates. You get a real appreciation for how good the players are throughout the world.One special moment for me was playing Nigeria in the quarterfinals and going against my former South Carolina teammate Sarah Imovbioh. She was a teammate I really loved with the Gamecocks. She’s always been herself and brought a lot of energy every time she played. Seeing her playing for her country and making history made my heart smile, to see how much fun she was having and how much pride she has for her country. I know it made coach Staley and I very, very, happy.We took a photo together after the game and I can’t wait to see it.Playing around some of the best ever to play has been a lot of fun, seeing their basketball IQ and their knowledge. The stories they have from being in the league so long. I was talking with my Las Vegas Aces teammate Kelsey Plum and we hope we can be in the game long enough to build stories like that. I’m trying to take it all in.One thing I’ve learned being on this team is to not do anything out of your role just because you’re on a different team. I come from teams where they expect me to do a lot. Here I don’t have to do that. Here I can just be myself and play a certain amount and know someone else is coming in to pick it up.It definitely helps since the other day I got a little bit of food poisoning and was feeling under the weather. Fortunately, we have great doctors with us and they got me back on track and being the A’ja I’m used to being.It’s not been all basketball here. My mom and I found this really great manicure spot so I got my nails done. Then of course we went souvenir shopping a bit. No, I didn’t get a flamingo to bring back, but we got scarves, clothes, jackets, shot glasses and bracelets. Out of our friends we travel the most, so we always try to get them things from every country we go to.And now I hope to bring home one more thing, and that’s a gold medal.___Las Vegas Aces star A’ja Wilson is checking in periodically from the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup. It’s been a busy few weeks with USA training camp, winning Rookie of the Year and finally making the team.last_img read more
