Join Sportesk – a new concept in sports social networking!

first_imgThursday Sep 20, 2012 Join Sportesk – a new concept in sports social networking! Many people involved in sport find it hard to identify friends, teams and career opportunities against the background of hectic modern lifestyles. Young people in particular have mobile lives, moving between jobs and education and as a result many drop out of sport. With sport so firmly in focus following the 2012 London Olympics, Sportesk will help people to continue playing and staying involved in sport. The Sportesk concept has the enthusiastic support of Gareth Widdop of Melbourne Storm and England rugby league, a rugby teammate of the Sportesk founder and now an ambassador.When he was released from Halifax Blue Sox as a scholarship player he had difficulty finding a new club and so turned to rugby union.Widdop stated, “If it wasn’t for me going to Australia and getting picked up by the systems they have in place, I wouldn’t be playing for Storm or England now. Sportesk is a great concept, especially for kids in the position I was in.”“It can be used as an aid for professional clubs and governing bodies to track the development of players who just missed out on selection for representative honours, but have the potential to play at a top level,” he explained.Sportesk is endorsed by SRL (Student Rugby League) to track players in the top 24 rugby league playing universities for the 2012-13 season. This means that the most talented players and coaches will be signed up to Sportesk. Talented young players who register with Sportesk will have the chance to be scouted by some of the universities. Rugby union, rugby league and football are now live on Sportesk.com.

Farmland Market Expected to Remain Strong in 2015

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jan 5, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmland Market Expected to Remain Strong in 2015 Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company continued to see large crowds of active bidders during 2014, according to company President R.D. Schrader.  While noting that “prices have fallen off a bit” in some areas due to lower commodity prices, he said the company found active markets in 2014 well beyond the Midwest. In a week-long series of major auctions in six states, the company sold 13,450 acres for a total of $46.3 million. “We had good participation and successful auctions in the Delta, Southwest and Mountain regions, as well as the Midwest,” he said. “For the year, we averaged more than two farmland auctions a week, successfully selling farms of every conceivable size and quality,” he said. “Buyers are more selective, and if interest rates rise in combination with lower commodity prices, that will impact demand. But the market is still there. The agriculture industry remains very strong. It’s important in this environment to make sure you’re marketing the property effectively, which is always a priority for us.”Schrader said he remains optimistic. “Long term, farmland remains very attractive, especially when you consider the alternatives. We’ve seen wild one-day swings in stocks, and interest rates continue at all-time lows. Meanwhile, over the last decade, Midwestern farmland has been appreciating at an average rate of more than 10 percent per year,” he said.Schrader expects another active year. “There’s still a great deal of demand. The marketplace is rewarding quality, and productive land with good soils will continue to do the best,” he said. Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company, based in Columbia City, Ind., is a leading auctioneer of agricultural land throughout the United States and is a four-time USA Today/National Auctioneers Association Auction of the Year Winner, as well as a two-time winner of the Grand Champion Marketing Award of Excellence.

The Supreme Court observed that the same having remained unverified, the Court has to be circumspect in imposing a prior restraint on publication or the airing of the views.On the other hand, before the HC, the channel and its anchor did not dispute the veracity of the clip of the show’s trailer.”In the present application, however, the respondent nos.3 and 4 admit the veracity of the video clip that was played before this Court. Prima facie, I find the same to be in violation of the Programme Code set out under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Act’)”.The Central Government Counsel had informed the HC that a notice had been served on the channel and the anchor by the Union Ministry based on the complaints against the proposed show.In the Supreme Court, the bench did not have an opportunity to hear the Central Government.The HC disposed of the petition after a special sitting held on Saturday at 7 PM, when the channel moved an application seeking vacation of the stay, citing the order passed by the Supreme Court declining to stay the telecast.The show was scheduled to be telecast on Friday (August 28) at 8 PM. Before that, the editor of the channel, Mr. Suresh Chavhanke, had shared a 48-second trailer of the show in Twitter with a hashtag #UPSCJIHAD, attracting widespread criticism even from IAS and IPS associations regarding the communalization of the entry of Muslims into all India civil services.Based on the trailer, a group of former and present students of Jamia Milia Islamia approached the Delhi High Court yesterday, seeking a stay on the telecast on the ground that it violated the program code under the Cable TV Act(Syed Mujtaba Athar and others vs Union of India and others). Advocate Shadan Farasat, the petitioners’ counsel, played the clip before the court and submitted that the show claims that the success of Jamia Milia Islamia students in the Civil Services examination 2020 represents a “conspiracy to infiltrate the civil service by Muslims”.The Central Government Counsel appearing for the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, on instructions, told the bench yesterday that several complaints were received by the Ministry against the program proposed to be telecast by Sudarshan TV and that it has issued notice to it.In this circumstance, the single bench of the Delhi HC proceeded to stay the telecast of the program, which was scheduled at 8 PM on Friday.Meanwhile, a similar petition was filed in the Supreme Court also, by another petitioner(Firoz Iqbal Khan). That petition was considered by a bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and K M Joseph on Friday evening, almost at the same time when the other petition was being considered by the Delhi HC.The SC, while noting that the case “raises significant issues bearing on the protection of constitutional rights”, declined to put a “pre-broadcast injunction” against the telecast of the show. The top court observed that it has to be “circumspect in imposing a prior restraint on publication or the airing of views”, that too based on an “unverified transcript of a forty nine second clip”.However, the apex court expressed its inclination to consider the larger issues pertaining to free speech and said that it might appoint an amicus curiae for assistance on the next posting date, September 15.”Prima facie, the petition raises significant issues bearing on the protection of constitutional rights. Consistent with the fundamental right to free speech and expression, the Court will need to foster a considered a debate on the setting up of standards of self- regulation. Together with free speech, there are other constitutional values which need to be balanced and preserved including the fundamental right to equality and fair treatment for every segment of citizens”, the SC observed.In March 2019, a court in Kerala ordered Sudarshan New channel to pay a compensation of ₹50 lakh to Malabar Gold in a defamation suit, after it broadcast morphed visuals alleging the company of having celebrated Pakistani Independence Day.Click here to download orderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more
