There will be lots of different ways that people can get involved, from sharing their passion for sports with local children, to lending a helping hand to spruce up a local community centre, to sharing some of their professional expertise with a local community leader.”Michael Wade, Chairman of Optex Group and the first Chairman of the Lloyd’s Community Programme, said:“The response by the Lloyd’s Market to the vision that was set over 20 years ago for a Lloyd’s Community Programme has been outstanding. A focus on education and employability projects in East London over this period has been a logical way to match the skill sets of our community to help our immediate neighbours.”Future events include:• Finals of the Tower Hamlets Schools Public Speaking Competition in the Old Library at Lloyd’s in March which is open to guests; and• Lloyd’s Cricket Cup for local primary schools at Brit Insurance Oval in April with volunteers needed to help on the day.Those interested in getting involved in these or other Lloyd’s Community Programme activities should contact [email protected] or call 020 7327 5484.For further information, please contactLouise ShieldTel: +44 (0)20 7327 5793 Fax: +44 (0)20 7327 5229 Email: [email protected] NashTel: +44 (0)20 7327 6272 Fax: +44 (0)20 7327 5229 Email: [email protected] to editors:1. The Lloyd’s Community Programme gives people working at Lloyd’s and in the Lloyd’s market the opportunity to ‘put something back’ into the community on their doorstep through volunteering. It is run by a management board of senior representatives from companies in the market and supported by the Community Affairs team at Lloyd’s and involves over 60 companies in the Lloyd’s market.2. Lloyd’s is very keen to support young talent in the market, participating in several market wide programmes, such as the National Skills Academy for Financial Services in Tower Hamlets College programme, which places local graduates in six-week placements in the Lloyd’s Corporation and the market, as well as Lloyd’s own graduate programme, which saw its first intake in September 2008.3.

Issued by the Baltimore Peoples Power AssemblyNational call to mobilize in cities across the U.S. and around the world for:BLACK LIVES MATTER MAY DAY, FRIDAY, MAY 1, 2015SHUT IT DOWN FOR FREDDIE GREY ON MAY DAY — FRIDAY, MAY 1ST!TURN UP & STAND WITH THE PEOPLE OF BALTIMORE!AMNESTY FOR ALL ARRESTED PROTESTERS!EVERY 8 HOURS A POLICE OR VIGILANTE MURDER OCCURS IN THE U.S.!JAIL KILLER COPS NOW! END RACIST POLICE VIOLENCE NOW!#BLACKLIVESMATTER #BROWNLIVESMATTERJUSTICE FOR FREDDIE GREY & ALL FAMILIES IMPACTED BY POLICE TERROR AROUND THE COUNTRY! SHOW YOUR OUTRAGE ON MAY DAY!Greetings, sisters and brothers, from the streets of Baltimore:As we draft this appeal, the city of Baltimore is being occupied by a regional mobilization of police and the National Guard. The mass outrage over the slaughter of Freddie Grey has grown from protest to resistance. Baltimore is the “new” Ferguson, Mo. We need the intervention of all who have participated in the Black Lives Matter movement on a national level, and we need it now.No police have been arrested for the murder of Freddie Grey. No explanation for his death has been given except to say that it’s a “mystery”! More than 300 people have been arrested for resistance — while the cops are still free.We are calling on activists to turn Friday, May 1st, 2015, into BLACK LIVES MATTER MAY DAY.If you can organize to take it to the streets, the highways and the bridges, in the same way that you did last fall and winter, it would make a world of difference in the struggle for justice at this critical moment.We applaud the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 in Oakland, Calif., as well as the longshore workers in Charleston, S.C., for plans to shut the docks down on May Day in solidarity with the struggle against racist police violence.We believe that it’s important that the movement rise up again on May Day, International Workers Day. The young Black and Brown people who are being murdered by the police may not look like some outdated stereotype of a worker, but they are part of the working class. You should not have to have a job or be in a union to qualify.It’s time to get beyond outmoded notions about who is and who is not in the working class. The truth is that the fastest growing demographic of workers are unemployed or underemployed people of color, many of them undocumented migrant workers and women.If the Black Lives Matter movement can rise up again this May Day, it might just be the beginning of something bigger: a game-changer that broadens the movement as well as the way people think.On Saturday, May 2nd, we call upon all who are able to to come to Baltimore.

The irony is that the woman is not faithful to her religion, and she brings the mailman into a situation involving her husband.Writer and director Danny Legittino said the film’s original name was going to be “An Abundance of Evil” due to its “twisted” storyline.“My goal when I make a movie is I want people when they leave the theater or wherever they are watching [the film] to think, ‘What did I just watch?’” Legittino said.“The cinematography of it is really pretty,” editor Brad Lowe said. “There will be quick cutting. It will be fun to cut it together and to create [a] sense of urgency in the film.”The SFA is comprised of amateur students who have an interest in making movies.Assistant director Ariana Milligan said students from any major can get involved with the organization.“I joined to develop relationships with people that share the same passion to create things that I have,” Milligan said. “It’s a very diverse group of people.”Production designer Chandler McGovern said those involved in the organization learn all aspects of filming.“We learn about the process of making a film,” McGovern said, “from preproduction, to filming and to postproduction.”“It’s like a big family,” Legittino said. “You’d be surprised after three days of shooting of how close you get with everybody.”Legittino said “The Garden Sense” and three other short films shot in the fall semester will debut in April 2016 at the BLUU Auditorium.The Student Filmmakers Association meets every Thursday at 5 p.m. in Moudy North.

While observing so, the Court also opined that a judicial separation, instead of divorce by mutual consent cannot be granted in a mechanical manner. A division bench comprising of Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra and Justice NK Chandravanshi observed thus: “The provisions contained in Section 13-B of the Act, 1955 does not provide for existence of a ground like the ones contained in Section 13 for grant of divorce by mutual consent. There need not be a serious dispute between a married couple for seeking a divorce by mutual consent. It may happen in a given case that there is no quarrel or dispute between the couple but yet their actions and behaviour are not compatible with each other for living a happy and peaceful married life, therefore, they may seek divorce by mutual consent.” The observation came in an appeal challenging a decree of judicial separation passed by the Trial Court vide judgment dated 12th December 2018 in the proceedings for grant of divorce by mutual consent under sec. 13B of the Act. The parties, married since February 2017, remained together for only two days and had preferred a joint application for divorce by mutual consent after one year of marriage i.e. in March 2018. The Trial Court had passed a decree for judicial separation for a period of one year instead of divorce by mutual consent by referring to sec. 13A of the Act which provides for alternative relief in divorce proceedings. While passing the said decree, the trial court also went ahead to observe that the period of their staying together is so short that it is not possible that any serious dispute would have arisen between them. The High Court, while analyzing the said provision, observed that sec. 13A would attract only in those cases where the Trial Court is satisfied that it is just to pass a decree for judicial separation instead of mutual divorce. “The phrase “having regard to the circumstances of the case” requires the trial Court to find out the circumstances which compels it to pass a decree for judicial separation. Unless such circumstances exist, the trial Court is not entitled to pass a decree for judicial separation in a mechanical manner.” The Court observed at the outset. The Court also observed that the “Trial Court had assumed that the dispute between the parties might not be of such intensity which could force them to seek a divorce by mutual consent.”Observing that occurrence of serious dispute is not a prerequisite under sec. 13B, the Court held thus: “If an application is otherwise duly constituted and properly presented before the Court, it is not for the Court to search for a ground or a reason, which has compelled the parties to seek divorce by mutual consent.” In view of the aforesaid observations, the Court observed that the Trial Court should have passed the decree of divorce by mutual consent instead of decree for judicial separation. “Therefore, we allow the appeal, set-aside the impugned decree of judicial separation and instead pass a decree of divorce by mutual consent. Accordingly, the marriage between the parties solemnized on 20.2.2017 is dissolved by a decree of divorce by mutual consent. A decree be drawn accordingly.” The Court held.Title: Sandhya Sen v.

PhotosbyAndy/iStock(PHILADELPHIA) — A 10-year-old boy was shot in the back of the head in Philadelphia on Wednesday and rushed to a children’s hospital in critical condition, authorities said.The shooting was just after 3:30 p.m. in the city’s Frankford section, according to Philadelphia Police Department.The little boy was walking home from school at the time, according to ABC Philadelphia station WPVI.The gunman is not known and no weapon was recovered, police said.This comes just weeks after a 2-year-old girl, Nikolette Rivera, was in the shot dead in her North Philadelphia home on a Sunday afternoon.Nikolette was in her mother’s arms when bullets from an automatic rifle came through the wall and hit her in the head.One day before Nikolette was killed, an 11-month-old boy, Yazeem Jenkins, was shot four times and critically injured while in the back of a car in Philadelphia’s Hunting Park neighborhood.“Yazeem is fighting for his life at Children’s Hospital,” William McSwain, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, said Monday.After those two shootings Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said weapons are “flowing” into the city “like a river.”“Outraged, disgusted, and heartbroken by the violence this weekend that claimed the life of an innocent 2-year-old and left another infant fighting for his life,” Kenney tweeted. “Philadelphians should not live in fear of violence that could take away a child’s life.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) would raise global sea level by similar to 3.3-5 m. Ice-sheet models and geological data suggest at least one collapse has happened during the last 1.1 Ma, and some scenarios of future climate change predict a collapse within the next two centuries. A complete WAIS collapse would open shallow seaways across West Antarctica, potentially enabling exchange of animals between West Antarctic seas. We investigated biological evidence for past connectivity between different regions of Antarctica by comparing the composition of modern bryozoan assemblages from the continental margin around Antarctica. Surprisingly, we found most similarity between two areas which are not currently connected – the shelves of the Weddell Sea (WS) and Ross Sea (RS). We evaluated three hypotheses to explain this and conclude that bryozoans most likely dispersed through a trans-Antarctic seaway that opened in response to a WAIS collapse and connected the WS and RS shelves. These bryozoans must have survived glaciations(s) during subsequent ice ages in refuges, whereas they were wiped out in most other regions of the Antarctic shelf. After the last glacial period, bryozoan assemblages could freely disperse between many of the regions we examined (e.g. Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands), which has allowed recolonization of areas in which bryozoans had been eradicated during the last ice age. For the bryozoans on the WS and RS shelves to be more similar than those which are in close proximity means the trans-Antarctic seaway may have been as late as the last few interglacials. Current rates of warming are exceptional compared with the near past glacial cycles so our study, the strongest faunal evidence of WAIS collapse during the recent geological past, thus supports predictions of a near future WAIS collapse (with considerable global sea level implications) and resultant future major faunal exchanges.

Echo Energy, the Latin American-focused upstream oil and gas company, is pleased to announce that following the completion of drilling operations at the Company’s Campo La Mata x-1 well (CLM x-1) on Tapi Aike, mobilisation of the Petreven H-205 rig to the Palermo Aike production concession, in the Santa Cruz Sur assets, to drill the Campo Limite exploration well (“CLix-1001”), has now commenced. The CLix 1001 well will be operated by Roch S.A. (the “Operator”) and drilling of the well will commence during the week ending 29 December 2019.As previously announced, CLix-1001 will target the conventional Springhill reservoir on a structure located two kilometres from the Chilean border. Technical work has identified the Springhill target on 3D seismic data, characterised by a negative seismic amplitude at reservoir level. The target structure is in the same fault block and up dip of a well which has historically tested and produced gas from the Springhill reservoir.The CLix-1001 well will be drilled to a total measured depth (“TD”) of approximately 2,300 metres and a full suite of wireline logging tests will be conducted over the conventional Springhill reservoir which is expected to be encountered at a true vertical depth (“TVD”) of approximately 2,150 metres.Operator volumes for gross (100% basis) gas initially in place (GIIP) for the Campo Limite area are 48.9 bcf (P50 mid case), with a Pmean volume of 68.5 bcf. Given the conventional nature of the Springhill reservoir, the Operator estimates a recovery factor of approximately 70%. The Operator’s estimated geological Chance of Success (CoS), based on analyses of other wells in the area, is 70%, with the identified risks being reservoir presence and deliverability.The well has the potential to successfully de-risk further appraisal and development targets in the Campo Limite area. The presence of additional gas resources will provide enhanced commercial development scenarios for existing discovered volumes.As previously announced, the costs of the CLix-1001 well that correspond to Echo’s interest will be paid for by Petrolera El Trebol SA, a subsidiary of Phoenix Global Resources plc, the previous owner of the interest. Echo will reimburse up to 60% of these costs at a later date in a mixture of cash and ordinary shares. Total reimbursement will not exceed a maximum amount of US$1.1 million.Martin Hull, Echo’s Chief Executive, commented: “The coming weeks represent a very exciting period for Echo as we drill CLix-1001 and move to begin the testing of the recently drilled CLM x-1 well in the Tapi Aike concession, following the previously announced encouraging initial data. 2020 will also be an extremely active year for the Company as we finalise well locations and continue our exploration campaign in Tapi Aike, and plan and execute our pursuit of the identified additional upside in the Santa Cruz Sur portfolio.” Source: Company Press Release The CLix-1001 well will be drilled to a total measured depth (TD) of approximately 2,300 metres and a full suite of wireline logging tests will be conducted over the conventional Springhill reservoir
