SC hosts Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

first_img ABOUT TWO DOZEN children of Supreme Court and Office of the State Court Administrator employees participated in this year’s ”Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” in Tallahassee. The kids learned about what their parents do at work, toured the Supreme Court building, and participated in mock oral arguments in the courtroom with the students playing the roles of the lawyers and the justices. The older students reargued the famous 1969 Tinker v. Des Moines case in which students were suspended for wearing peace-sign adorned black arm bands to protest the Vietnam War that resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court holding that “students do not shed their constitutional rights at the school house gates.” The younger students debated a case involving the banning of books in a school library. Justice Barbara Pariente welcomed the students to the court and helped lead them through the oral arguments.

Law says win over England at Leeds – the highlight of his tenure

first_imgLONDON, England (CMC) – Three months after he announced his resignation as West Indies head coach, Stuart Law has been reflecting on his tenure at the regional side, pointing to the Windies’ first Test victory over England in 17 years as the highlight of his tenure.Law’s last series in charge was the tour of India last month when West Indies lost the Test, ODI and T20 series.“Not just winning it, but getting the boys back up into a mental space after the first Test where we got absolutely walloped, and then to come out and outplay England in all facets was an amazing achievement,” Law said of the team’s five-wicket win over England in the second Test at Leeds last year.“I didn’t have to do a hell of a lot. The boys were hurt; and I just highlight certain things that were being said back home, and by certain people in the media in England. I said, ‘These people don’t think you’re good enough.“You’ve just got to go out there and prove you are. I believe you are. Everyone in this room thinks you are good enough. So get out there and show them.’”West Indies were hammered in the first Test at Birmingham by an innings and 209 runs but then chased down 322 on the final day to pull off an astonishing victory in the second Test.Law succeeded Phil Simmons as head coach two years ago after the former was sacked by West Indies administrators over “differences in culture and strategic approach”.Simmons led the team to victory in the ICC T20 World Cup in India in 2016, and prior to that he played a key role in Ireland’s rise as a non-Test-playing nation. However, clashes with Windies bosses over selection, as well as his views challenging the Board, resulted in his demise after 18 months on the job.In an interview with Cricbuzz, Law noted that one of his challenges was effecting a cultural change within the team.“It was quite evident that there was a cultural change that needed to take place. The hardest thing to change is culture,” the Australian pointed out.“In my first couple of months in charge, you could realise that the players aren’t fit. Niggling injuries were preventing players from performing at their very best on the ground. Our work ethic probably wasn’t where we needed it to be. That was the first change: to try and get the mindset around that.”Law said he prioritised discipline and stressed the importance of communication.“From the outset I said, I want to see us as a family, and in a family, if someone’s not doing what they should be doing, they should get told,” he explained.“An open, honest conversation is not to hurt; it’s to help you get better. That’s the first thing I tried to instil – the family aspect to it. From there, it was just installing a little bit of discipline here and there. I didn’t want to go in and change ten things in the first week, but one thing in ten weeks.“Then add another thing. And then all of a sudden, one thing leads to three and another in the next week.”He continued: “For me, it was to find something that’s working. The first step was try to get the boys fitter and stronger; to cope with the amount of cricket that they’re playing; then try and install that underneath the (international) level, so when they come up to us, they’re already fit and strong, so that they’re not doing their fitness and strength work on the road while playing cricket.”Law acknowledged that the foundation in the Caribbean needed to be laid at the junior level. However, some schools have stopped their cricket programmes as they prioritise education over sport.Nevertheless he remained hopeful.“If they can still instil the love of it back in the juniors and the young kids, it would help. There has to be a system in place,” he said.“It would be nice to get an academy up and running, whichever island it’s on. An academy where young players of note can come and do a three-month programme for fitness and strength, first and foremost, rather than cricket skill.“They’ve all got cricket skill. They’re natural athletes. But to get the functional strength and anaerobic capacity is what made the great West Indian team stand out from the rest. They were fitter than everyone else. Now the rest of the world has caught up and gone past. Now everyone knows that if you’re not fit, you’re not going to play.”At the time of his appointment Law was given a mandate to improve the results of the West Indies, but he endured a difficult period with the team.He won only six of his Tests in charge, and picked up series wins against minnows Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in the six tours he has overseen.Law will take up the new post of head coach at Middlesex CCC in the New Year.last_img read more

SPORT-MUSHTAQ-T20 2 LT(SPB2)

first_imgEast started poorly by losing Shreevats Goswami andEast started poorly by losing Shreevats Goswami and yesterdays batting hero Ishank Jaggi cheaply to be in trouble at 13 for 2 after two overs before Virat and Tiwary pulled them out of the mire and then started to dominate the bowling attack.Virat struck 9 fours and 2 sixes, while Tiwary slammed five sixes and as many fours as they pulverised the North bowling attack to guide East home well inside the allotted overs.Earlier, South won the toss and put the opposition in and used the early morning conditions to trouble the hosts who never got going at full throttle and also lost wickets at regular intervals to be 81 for 4 at the end of 13 overs.Deepak Hooda struck a 21-ball 32, hitting two sixes and one four, to give some momentum but his departure at 112 in the 16th over set West back although Irfan Pathan helped the total reach 140 by making 26 in 17 balls.The score was just not enough once West failed to strike early blows as opener Mayank Agarwal, who hit 9 fours and a couple of sixes, anchored the innings to a nicety.The Karnataka batsman and Vishnu Vinod (36 in 20 balls) gave a good start to the chase by adding 48 runs in 5 overs.Mayank Agarwal then took over the attacking reins after Keralas Vinod was dismissed by Mumbais 45-year-old leggie Pravin Thambe.He stood firm even though South lost the wickets of Dinesh Karthik, Ricky Bhui and Hanuma Vihari cheaply, apart from losing captain for the match Vijay Shankar who retired hurt after being hit on the knee, and fell only when his side was one shot short of the target.advertisementThis was Wests second loss in three games and they have a match in hand against East Zone on the 18th, while South take on Central in the last tie of the tournament, on Saturday, after tomorrows rest day.Brief scores:West Zone 140 for 9 (D Hooda 32; C V Milind 3 for 41, M Ashwin 2 for 24, V Shankar 2 for 21) lost to South Zone 141 for 5 in 17.4 overs (V Vinod 36, M Agarwal 70).North Zone 159 for 9 (Yuvraj Singh 38; P Ojha 3 for 33, A Verma 2 for 18) lost to East Zone 162 for 2 in 16.3 overs (Virat Singh not out 74, M Tiwary not out 75).

9 months agoLiverpool boss Klopp responds to Guardiola jibe

first_imgAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say Liverpool boss Klopp responds to Guardiola jibeby Ansser Sadiq9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has taken a gibe at Manchester City’s Carabao Cup fixture.The Reds boss was speaking about his reasons for rotating the team against Wolves.He believed that his attackers needed a rest. And he suggested that if they had faced easier opposition, he may have put some of them in the team.Liverpool face Brighton on Saturday as they look to extend their lead at the top of the table.”If you have the full squad together, it’s massive [to have a lighter schedule],” Klopp told a pre-match news conference. “It’s really good. That’s my preferred rhythm.”It’s our situation – it’s not that we decided to go out of the EFL Cup or the FA Cup ourselves or that it’s not important. That’s not how it is.”We had Chelsea at home, which was probably the most difficult game, it was pretty tight and we lost it. Then Wolves was the situation and we had to make changes after the most intense month of the year in December.”If we had played a League Two team [instead of Wolves], maybe the offensive line could have played because the intensity is different and you have the ball most of the time, you can play.”Wolves make the pitch unbelievably big. You have to run. You cannot have the ball all the time. That means you have to understand the expected intensity of the game and you have to make a line-up. That’s what we did and we had a few injuries on top.”I would love to still be in these competitions, but we are not in them. We have to make the best of the time now. I know Pep [Guardiola] said he would prefer to be in four competitions. I would prefer the same.”We have to make the best of the time and get as many points as possible.” last_img read more
