Indiana AG appeals court ruling, wants early-voting sites

Posted on

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Attorney General Curtis Hill today announced he is appealing a federal court’s consent decree setting a minimum number of five early-voting sites specifically in Marion County in perpetuity, which contravenes state law requiring a unanimous vote of the county election board each year to establish satellite offices.“In filing this appeal, we are defending the ability of the local election board to make these decisions in accordance with state law without a federal court ruling binding the board to a minimum number of locations indefinitely,” Attorney General Hill said.Further, Attorney General Hill said, his office has a statutory obligation to defend the constitutionality and enforceability of state laws. In this case, a federal court overrode the operation of state law without declaring that enforcement of the law would violate federal law.While fulfilling his statutory duty, Attorney General Hill also reiterated his own strong support for maximizing the numbers of satellite voting centers in all 92 counties.“We must — as a matter of civic responsibility — ensure that as many people as possible are able to participate in free and fair elections,” he said. “In every lawful way, we should maximize the convenience and ease with which citizens may cast their ballots. Establishing a plentiful number of early-voting sites is one such strategy. I encourage county election officials across Indiana to operate multiple satellite voting locations in their counties, and I encourage voters to take maximum advantage of these opportunities.”Current court proceedings in this matter have no effect on the 2018 election cycle or current numbers of early-voting sites.last_img read more

Cricket News Ravi Shastri considers sending Kohli at No. 4 in World Cup

Posted on

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: India coach Ravi Shastri is mulling to send skipper Virat Kohli to bat at No. 4 to protect him in bowling-friendly conditions during the World Cup in England. Shastri said Kohli at number 4 can make the batting unit more stronger.“The good thing about this Indian top-three is we can separate them, if conditions and situations demand. Someone like Virat Kohli can go to number four, and we can put a good number three to bring more balance to the batting line-up,” Shastri told Cricbuzz.“That’s flexibility for you, and for big tournaments like the World Cup, you have to be flexible to see what’s the best balance for the side. So we will decide that (accordingly in England).“We will assess that on seeing conditions there in England. You don’t want to be 18-3 or 16-4 in a big tournament. I don’t care about bilateral ODIs, but why should I lose my best batsman early in a World Cup match (if the conditions are bowler friendly)?” he added.Also read | New Zealand shatters records with big total in Wellington T20I against IndiaAmbati Rayudu showed his prowess with a match-winning 90 at the Hamilton ODI and Shastri said he can be an option at number three.“Yes, maybe Rayudu, or someone else, could bat at number three, and Kohli comes in at number four. We wouldn’t want to disturb the opening combination. Separating the top-three could make the batting stronger.”Shastri said Rayudu’s innings eased his worries to an extent and his unorthodox style of batting can be an X factor for the team.“… the one quality Rayudu has, he can be very unorthodox. With the way he bats, he can be an x-factor for us. He will play shots that are unconventional at times, but they can be very effective,” he said.“The more he plays like this (like at Wellington), the more he will realise he can do that to the opposition.” last_img read more

first_imgAccording to the table, while Rivers United and Enyimba were tied on same number of points, a totally strange/ inconclusive head-to-head consideration affected by same force majeure was used to place Enyimba in the second position.“Nothing can be further from the truth; as such consideration can only exist in the imagination of those peddling the fake table“For emphasis and to inform discerning members of the public, what is internationally known and even in the rule books of League Management Company (LMC) of Nigeria is that points are the first basis of separating teams, followed by goal difference before head to head.“The Points Per Game (PPG) model adopted by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and LMC is a straight forward co-efficient of dividing the total number of points with the total number of matches played as when the league was suspended in order to guarantee fairness to club that played less number of matches.“With the application of PPG, all teams are now measured equally erasing the scenario of whether or not any club played higher number of matches than the other.“It also follows therefore that in separating the tie by goal difference, is to divide number of goals scored by number of matches played to arrive at a coefficient.“Based on the above, it is obvious that Rivers United is the second-placed team and no amount of false narratives will deceive those who should know.“We have already made our position known to the NFF and LMC and, we expect that justice will be served without fear or favour.“On a final note, we may be compelled to explore all legitimate means available, including formal petitions to FIFA, CAF, and CAS to ventilate our grievances and press for justice,” concludes the press statement made available on several platforms by the Rivers United FC media.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Rivers United FC have threatened to explore legitimate means available including formal petition to FIFA, CAF and CAS to ventilate their grievances over the decision of the league managers to place the team in third position.Rivers United have insisted they finished second and not third as against the final season table revealed by the League Management Company.In a statement signed by the General Manager of the club, Okey Kpaluku and made available to media over the weekend which reads, “Our attention has been drawn to a purported Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table being circulated around the media space wherein Plateau United, Enyimba and Rivers United were placed first, second and third respectively.last_img read more
