Law Society of Scotland calls for powers ‘roadmap’

first_imgThe Law Society of Scotland has hailed the independence referendum as a ‘triumph for democracy’, but called for a ‘clear roadmap’ for new devolved powers.Commenting on the ‘No’ vote, president Alistair Morris said: ‘The campaign over the last few years has been impassioned and at times difficult, with strong views and emotions on both sides.  ‘However, this referendum has been a triumph of democracy. We have seen a record turnout which has included many thousands of people registering and voting for the first time.’  He added: ‘During the referendum campaign, we were repeatedly assured that a No vote was not a vote for the status quo. The three main UK parties signed a commitment to devolve further powers from Westminster to the Scottish Parliament. We now need a clear roadmap, both for reaching a consensus and for the delivery of any new powers. That process must reach out beyond the political parties and involve those from across civic Scotland.’The Society is holding a special conference on Friday 3 October titled ‘The People’s Verdict – so what now?’ which will consider the implications of the referendum result. First minister Alex Salmond and Scottish secretary Alistair Carmichael will be among the speakers.Scotland’s largest law firm CMS, which acquired Dundas & Wilson earlier this year, also issued a statement on the result. Senior partner Penelope Warne said: ’No does not mean no change. There is an expectation of change but the question is how much. Although devo-max is currently light on detail, it is safe to assume with promises made by all three major parties there will be far-reaching changes in institutional structures, law and regulation. Business welcomes certainty and as the sixth largest global law firm, with 250 lawyers in Scotland and a Scottish presence that we are extremely proud of, we are ideally positioned to assist the market as it grapples with what these changes mean.’CMS has launched Scot-Next, a microsite which provides information on what is being proposed and the implications for the legal market.The Association of Conservative Lawyers has responded to the vote by publishing ‘Our Quasi-Federal Kingdom’, a new paper on Britain’s constitutional arrangements. The paper proposes a new statute of union declaring that the UK is a quasi-federal, voluntary union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It provides a blueprint for an ‘English voice on English government’ within the Westminster Parliament.Former attorney general Dominic Grieve, chairman of the Society’s executive committee, said: ‘Given the new powers that will be going to Scotland, the paper outlines a clearly and carefully worked out solution to the West Lothian question, that could be achievable within the existing structure of the UK parliament and at minimal cost.‘Those of us who want to see our union strengthened along with a fair solution for England have before us a thoroughly considered proposal which can be used in parliament to inform the debate and offer change within a reasonable timescale.’The West Lothian question refers to the perceived anomaly that MPs from outside England can vote on matters that affect England only.last_img read more

UWF Softball Season Comes to an End with 1-1 Day at South Region Tournament

first_img VALDOSTA, Ga. – Argonaut softball put together a 40-16 record this season, despite some major bumps in the road throughout the year. Between injuries and position shifts across the season, West Florida continually overcame obstacles that would have stood in the way of any other team. Their postseason dreams, however, came to an end on Saturday afternoon.The Argonauts twice faced elimination on Saturday, and dodged a trip home in a 4-3 win over Albany State in the first game. The West Florida pitching staff combined to defeat the Rams, as Ashleigh Allgood (Oxford, Ala./Jefferson Davis) earned the win for a final 17-6 season record. Both Victoria Harvey (Green Cove Bay, Fla./Clay HS) and Jillian Lafrance (Calgary, Alberta/Charleston Southern) teamed up to close the game for Allgood, advancing West Florida to the South Region semi-finals.Allgood put the first run on the board with solo ride over the left center wall in the second inning, while the Rams answered the run in the bottom half of the frame. The Argos, however, quickly countered in the third as Karri Bisbee (Panama City, Fla./Gulf Coast CC) drew a leadoff walk and eventually scored on an Amber Ingram (Pensacola, Fla./Catholic HS) double.With a 2-1 lead in the sixth, Allgood became the third Argonaut to hit two homeruns in a single game this season with a blast to the opposite side in right center. Crystal Thompson (Bonifay, Fla./Gulf Coast CC) then followed with a double, and Kaley Kania (Pensacola, Fla./Tate HS) entered the game to run. When Kania advanced to third on a sacrifice fly, head coach Tami Cyr called for the squeeze, and it was Lexi Mikedis (Citra, Fla./Central Florida CC) who answered that call with a successful bunt that scored Kania. Despite two runs in the bottom of the sixth from Albany State, Harvey and Lafrance teamed up in the circle to preserve the 4-3 lead for the win.Lafrance was called upon to start in the circle against Valdosta State, with both teams fighting for a spot in the South Region finals. The senior gave up just six hits to a potent VSU offense, but West Florida fell 3-0 in a season-ending loss to the Lady Blazers.In a pitching duel between Lafrance and VSU ace Margaret Carter, it was GSC East Player of the Year Alyssa Shirey who broke open a scoreless game in the top of the second. West Florida’s Danielle Kildow tried to spark the Argo offense in the third with a base hit that proved to be the only hit from either team between the second and sixth frames as the two ace pitchers battled in the circle.Valdosta State’s Morgan Johnson and Stephanie Carlson, however, each blasted solo homeruns of their own for a 3-0 edge on the Argonauts, a lead they would never overcome. Lafrance fanned five batters in the loss and was 1-for-3 from the plate, while Allgood represented the third Argo hit in the defeat.The Argos close the season in their third consecutive trip to the regional tournament, just falling short of advancing to the final game. West Florida says goodbye to six seniors with the loss, including Lafrance, a three-year starter in the circle. Two-year members Shannon Miles (Shreveport, La./Bossier Parrish CC) and Stephanie Ryan (Calgary, Alberta/Webber International) closed out their UWF careers, while Franny Bell (Navarre, Fla./Navarre HS), Dawnyele Stapleton (Navarre, Fla./Navarre HS), and Melissa Chastang (Satsuma, Ala./Satsuma HS) round out four-year stints under Coach Cyr.Game One Box ScoreGame Two Box ScorePrint Friendly Version Share UWF Softball Season Comes to an End with 1-1 Day at South Region Tournamentcenter_img UWF Seniors (Photo by UWF Sports Information) last_img read more

He will be at practice today, and he will be available to talk to you after practice.”Alleva said Miles drove himself to the hospital.Coverage of LSU and Glenn Guilbeau commentary supported by Hebert’s Town and Country Auto Dealer in Shreveport located at 1155 E.

Bald Eagle Attacks Mariners Player at Twins Home Opener

first_img 360p He just wanted an autograph! Can’t blame him for being a big fan! During the singing of the National Anthem at the Twins Home Opener the bald eagle that was meant to flay over the field went a little off course. The bird was supposed to fly to the pitchers mound, and instead flew to Mariners Pitcher, James Paxton. Totally an understandable mistake, pitches mound, Mariners pitcher, same thing. What really surprised me was how well Paxton handled it. It’s like he’s had eagles land on his shoulder before! He just stayed calm and let the giant patriotic bird sink its talons into his shoulder. Not like he needs that to throw baseballs or anything. The eagle’s trainer came to the rescue and got the bird back under control, and the game commenced! Welcome back baseball! We’ve all missed you.

I religiously read through every Sears catalog, particularly that section as well as the Atari 2600/5200 game section which always had screenshots of every game.I had two of those Dallas jerseys – a white #12 and later an old-school blue road #11, both handed down from my older brother. Later on I had a Packers #31 (I don’t even know who #31 was then… Jim Taylor would have been too old even 20+ years ago). Also had at least two or three of those 3/4 sleeve shirts (usually worn with Nike Cortez’s in a matching color scheme).Two Dallas helmets (which my parents still have in their basement somewhere), a Dallas jacket, a Houston Oilers stocking cap/beanie, Steelers gloves, several sets of pajamas, two of those figurines (one was Tony Dorsett and the other was a NY Jets player for some reason…. Richard Todd?). Also had (and still have) most of those pennants, including the Oilers and LOS ANGELES Rams.We had curtains and bedspreads (the ones in the 1979 Sears catalog), although ours must have been older because the Buccaneers and Seahawks were missing. For years I used to wonder why; I only found out later that they both started in 1976 (when I would have been a fetus). Share this post 3 WideRight Members LOL…great thread.

That is the most homogeneous group of cherry-cheeked wholesome white kids I have ever seen. The only non-white images on any pages are some of the NFL player toys. Just goes to show how we used to see (or not see at all) the true nature of our population. Despite all the issues we still have with race, I am certainly glad we live in a culture today that at least tries to represent everyone instead of blatantly ignoring or hiding reality.And I have to admit, when I was a kid we had a Sears outlet store near us, and I ended up getting 15 of the 28 NFL team replica jerseys there by the time I was in 8th grade.

D’Tigers, D’Tigress Can Win Olympic Medal, Says Kida

first_img“D’Tigers and D’Tigresses are teams that have the true spirit of Nigerians in them which is the spirit to win and perform optimally. They are going to perform extremely well and may go ahead to shock the world again and this will be an excellent outing,” observed the Nigerian basketball federation chief .Being the only Nigerian team sport to have so far qualified for the Games and the first time both teams will be featuring during the same summer Olympics (also first in Africa), expectations are high for the team to perform.Ranked number one in Africa and 14th in the world, D’Tigress will be making a return to the games after their last outing in 2004 in Athens, Greece while the men ranked first in Africa and 23rd in the world are making their return after the Rio 2016 Games.The NBBF president also recognizes this and said the federation with the help of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports will leave no stone unturned to prepare the team well for the Olympics.“The prospects are brighter with the technical crew of D’Tigers that we have right now. The players we intend to invite include our players in the domestic league. We are going to have an array of a formidable team and we will shock the world.”The 2020 Summer Games will hold from Friday, 24th of July to Sunday, 9th of AugustShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram NBBF President, Musa Kida addressing sports journalists on the new male league season As Nigerians count down to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Musa Kida, is optimistic that the country’s senior men and women basketball teams can end up on the medals table.Fielding questions from sportswriters at the weekend, the NBBF President said that Nigeria’s qualification to the Olympics “is not just to add to the numbers of participating teams but to shock the world and be amongst the best.”With the current synergy and talents in the teams (D’Tigers and D’Tigress), Kida is not in any doubt that the two teams can compete with the best around the world and fly Nigeria’s flag high in Tokyo.last_img read more
