I also want to make it easier for students and those working away from home to cast their votes,” Mr Varadkar said.With progress made on Brexit in the United Kingdom, the Fine Gael leader believes now is the “best time for the country” to hold a General Election.Addressing the short run-in to the polling day, he said, “Brexit is not done yet. In fact, it’s only half-time.“The next step is to negotiate a free trade agreement between the EU including Ireland and the United Kingdom that protects our jobs, our businesses, our rural communities and our economy.“The capacity to do everything else that needs to be done – health, housing, climate action, tax reform – depends on achieving this outcome. And, it has to be done by the end of the year.“There exists now a window of opportunity to hold a General Election and to have a new Government in place before the next European Council meeting in March with a strong mandate to focus on these negotiations into the summer and autumn.”The short campaign was met with some concern from opposition parties and candidates over the fact that some citizens eligible to vote may not have enough time to register.Claire Keating, the Green Party candidate for Limerick County, has called on Limerick Council to confirm that everyone who has registered to vote in the last year will be able to vote in the upcoming General Election.“After yesterday’s revelation that people who registered to vote since the last register was published might not be able to vote if the election is in early February, it’s important that Limerick Council moves quickly to end any uncertainty. Excluding new registrations would be undemocratic, and would be a total waste of Garda time if people need to go back and get new set of forms signed.” Previous articleWins for Thomond, Richmond and Abbeyfeale over the weekendNext articleLimerick Post Show | Metis Music for Mental Health Cian Reinhardthttp://www.limerickpost.ieJournalist & Digital Media Coordinator.

A single bench of Justice H P Sandesh will be passing the order. Mukherjee has sought transit bail as she is apprehending arrest in the Fake Television Rating Points (TRP) Scam case registered by the Mumbai police. Senior advocate Devadatt Kamat appearing for the Mumbai police raised preliminary objection on the maintainability of the petition. He said “This is nothing but forum shopping and submitted that petition is not maintainable.” Relying on the petition filed before the Bombay High Court seeking to quash the FIR, Kamat argued that this petition under section 438 of CrPC, filed before this court is a cut and paste of the petition filed before the Bombay High Court, where relief is sought against employees of the company and others. The same has not been produced before this court by the applicant. “It is a case where after having got no relief from the Bombay High Court this is a second attempt to bite at the cherry.” He also submitted that police were never informed on November 19, that she will be available before the investigating agency on November 24, as being said by the applicant. He relied on the communication sent by her to the investigating agency, in which there was no mention of the date. Further he submitted that the police team left Mumbai on November 20, for Bangalore apprehending that she had absconded. Kamat also submitted that the key link between the arrested accused Ghansyam Singh and the present applicant is the phone chats. The urgent need for her interrogation is because she is in a habit of deleting her phone chats as is recorded in her statement. “Therefore the delay in coming before the investigating agency, as evidence is going to be tampered,” he submitted.” The Counsel for Priya Mukherjee refuted the contentions raised by the Mumbai police saying “It was not she who had approached the Bombay HC but it was Arnab Goswami who had approached the court for himself.” He added that when notice was issued to her the applicant has attended before the investigating officer and cooperated in the probe and will do so in future. He prayed for 20 days time to approach the Bombay HC and protection till then. It was also said that “It is quite atrocious on the part of respondent 3 to go behind a lady. They (respondent 3) want to prove a point to somebody else.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Before Syracuse took on South Florida, Lisaira Daniels said the team wanted to get 10 hits and score in each inning of every game. The Orange has gone into all of its games with that same goal.And before that series in the first weekend of April, SU was often close to achieving that goal. The Orange had at least 10 hits in six of its last seven games — part of an eight-game winning streak that saw the team score 38 runs in a three-game sweep at Rutgers.Daniels was confident that production would continue.‘Our main objective is just to have everyone keep doing what they’re doing,’ Daniels said. ‘Everyone’s been producing from one through nine … whether it’s a big home run or grand slam to keep securing the runs.’But in 10 games since the Rutgers series, Syracuse (29-10, 8-5 Big East) has only achieved its 10-hit goal twice. The offensive woes contributed to a five-game losing streak and still remain a concern for SU, despite having won its last five games. The Orange is looking to find consistency at the plate in a doubleheader Friday at UMass (18-14, 8-3 Atlantic 10).AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJunior pitcher Jenna Caira said the lineup has to start reaching the 10-hit mark again. With Caira back on track in the circle after a tough weekend against Notre Dame, SU just needs its offense to find the same comfort zone it had earlier in the season.SU head coach Leigh Ross said her team can’t start thinking too much at the plate. When players start to overanalyze their swings or the situation, they put themselves at a disadvantage.‘There’s a point where you think, and then you shut it down and you just go,’ Ross said. ‘And you react and you just make things happen.’Syracuse made things happen at the plate in its second game against Villanova last weekend. The Orange used a six-run third inning to jump out to a 9-0 lead and cruised to a 10-1 win. The team sent 10 batters to the plate in the inning, highlighted by three doubles and two home runs.For the rest of the weekend, though, the lineup was quiet.SU had just one hit through four innings of the opener and only scored two runs in the win. In the final game of the series, the Orange sent all nine hitters to the plate and scored three runs in the first inning. But the team also left the bases loaded and only managed three more runs in the final five innings.Ross said when the SU lineup is clicking, the rest of the game is easier. The players can relax more on defense if the team builds a lead at the plate.‘If we can just kind of be real aggressive and jump on good pitches,’ Ross said, ‘that always makes you feel a little better when you’re going back onto the field playing defense.’Center fielder Veronica Grant said the pitching staff’s performance last weekend was also encouraging for the team’s hitters. With Caira keeping Villanova off the board all weekend, the lineup felt no pressure and could stay patient.‘It relaxes us at the plate,’ Grant said. ‘Gives us a big opportunity to see pitches and jump on what we want instead of having to chase pitches.’Now SU just has to use that patience to its advantage to score runs. Grant said the hitters need to give the pitching staff the same support it gave them against Villanova. By scoring runs, the pitchers can stick to their game plan and mix their pitches to keep the other team off balance.After the Rutgers series, Daniels said the team wasn’t going to change its preparation or mindset. Especially since SU was riding an eight-game winning streak at the time. She said Syracuse simply needed to keep the same approach.The team is currently on a five-game winning streak, and Grant echoed that sentiment as the team prepares for UMass.‘Same thing we’ve been doing,’ Grant said. ‘Keep hitting. Keep our pitching strong. Put up numbers on the board.’[email protected] Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 20, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected]
Published on December 5, 2016 at 11:24 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman NEW YORK – Tyler Lydon’s most recent lackluster shooting performance, against Connecticut, was almost déjà vu from a season ago.Then, he seemed hesitant to shoot despite proving he could. Then, he was coming off the bench and not considered a primary scorer while sharing the floor with Michael Gbinije, Trevor Cooney and Malachi Richardson. Now, he’s one of the focal points of Syracuse’s offense, still hesitant, still searching for the right play to make and when.“I gotta be more aggressive, there’s no doubt about that,” Lydon said. “I need to take more shots, but at the end of the day I try and make the right plays and some of the times I thought I could get a better look for another guy on the court and try and get them a better shot than what I had. And it just wasn’t that way.”In Syracuse’s (5-3) 52-50 loss to Connecticut (4-4) at Madison Square Garden on Monday night, Lydon went 1-of-7 from the field and 1-of-4 from deep. With Syracuse trailing by two late in the game, Lydon missed a wide open 3 from the top of the key after nailing his only make from the same spot earlier in the half. His four free throws accounted for more than half of his seven points, and Jim Boeheim felt that Lydon passed up 10 shots, as his star sophomore extended a slump that carries a 7-for-25 mark from the field over the past three games.“I’d like him to shoot 17 shots and if he only makes two or three of them, that’s fine,” Boeheim said. “He’s gotta take those shots. I don’t think he’s quite ready to do that for whatever reason. He’s been told to take them. We want him to take them.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTo diversify his game, Lydon has needed to add the ability to create his own shot by putting the ball on the floor. He did that Monday night, often passing up a 3-pointer by pump-faking and dribbling toward the rim in search of a more desirable shot, even if it wasn’t his to take.The first two times Lydon attacked the hoop, he drew a foul and made both foul shots each time. But on a drive later in the game, Lydon lost control of the ball on his way to the bucket before regaining control, missing a turnaround floater and committing a push-off foul on the ensuing possession.“I just gotta be aggressive in general and just play my game. And I’m not really doing that right now, so I just gotta get back on track,” Lydon said. “My shot feels good, it’s just they’re not falling right now. That’s basketball. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it again.”The one time Lydon was able to put the ball in the hoop was a crucial one in the moment, stretching Syracuse’s lead back to 10 with 11:41 left in the game right after a Rodney Purvis bucket cut it to seven. But like two Saturdays ago in a loss to South Carolina, when Lydon went on a 6-0 run by himself with more than 16 minutes left in the game, what could’ve sparked a strong finish gave way to a disappointing end.Since remaining stuck on 18 points for the final 16:19 in SU’s first loss, the sophomore has been mired in a funk. He’s made only one 3-pointer each against Wisconsin, North Florida and now Connecticut, averaging a mere 7.3 points over that span.Last season, Syracuse could afford to have a lackluster Lydon, with three more proven scorers on the floor with him. This year, with an offense in a state of despair, that’s not the case.“This year, he’s in a new role and new expectations. Obviously everybody wants perfection from Tyler right now, he’s still kinda figuring things out with all the new personnel we have,” fifth-year senior Andrew White said. “…We need to instill more confidence in him and make sure he’s taking those shots.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
