first_imgDo not think that the amendments to the Children Act (CA) relating to contact orders made by the Children and Adoption Act 2006 (the 2006 act), with effect from 8 December 2008, are about punishing parents for failing to comply with contact orders. Rather, the reforms are to ensure that contact orders are performed by all concerned for the benefit of children. The 2006 act has amended section 11 of the CA by adding sections 11A to 11P, enabling the courts particularly to make contact activity directions (CADs) and/or conditions (CACs). Section 11A CADs are ordered when the court is considering making a contact order. But, section 11B: the court may not make a CAD when it is also considering an adoption order or, where post-adoption, the court is considering making, varying or discharging a contact order relating to someone who, but for the adoption, would have been the child’s relative, unless the adoption is or was by a partner of one of the child’s parents alone, or as one of a couple – an ‘excepted order’. Section 11A(5) CADs include programmes, classes and counselling or guidance sessions to assist in establishing, maintaining or improving contact, for example programmes addressing violent behaviour. They do not include referrals to mediation, but could include referral to an information meeting about mediation. Before making a CAD or CAC, the court must be satisfied that:The court cannot make a CAD:unless it is considering making a contact order;directing a child, unless that child is the parent of the subject child; unless the person directed is a habitual resident of England and Wales.Section 11C CACs are ordered at the same time as a contact order. it is satisfied that the party in breach had a reasonable excuse for the breach (section 11J(3)). The burden of proof is on the person claiming the reasonable excuse and to the civil standard; the person to be subject to it is under 18 years of age; the contact order is an excepted order; the person who is to be the subject of the order is not habitually resident in England and Wales. The 2006 act amends the Criminal Justice Act 2003 so that that act applies to enforcement orders. Thus, the maximum hours of unpaid work which can be ordered under the 2006 act is 200, and the Cafcass officer can instruct the probation officer (‘the reporting officer’) to inform him if there are breaches of the enforcement order, or any other relevant information. Section 11M: on making an enforcement order, the court must ask Cafcass to monitor compliance and to report to the court on such matters that the court may request. Section 11N: on making an enforcement order, the court must attach a warning notice warning of the consequences of failing to comply with the order, that is: contempt of court; an amended, more onerous enforcement order; or a second enforcement order. The reporting officer must warn a party in breach of an enforcement order without reasonable excuse. He may also report first-time breaches to Cafcass. If the breach is not the first within the previous 12 months, he must report it to Cafcass. If the enforcement order is breached, the case may only come back to court on the application of one of the other parties. If in the substantive proceedings the child was represented by a rule 9.5 guardian, the guardian is not automatically served with such an application. However, an application for a fresh 9.5 appointment may be made to the court. Section 110 enables a party who has suffered financial loss as a result of a breach of contact order to apply for an order that the party in breach pays financial compensation. Enforcement of financial compensation orders is through usual county court procedures. However, section 11P states that there can be no compensation order: The new powers are welcome and laudable. However, they involve substantial participation from Cafcass. In many parts of the country, Cafcass is not yet able to participate in the way parliament envisaged. Will it ever be? the activity is appropriate in the circumstances; the activity provider is suitable; the activity is at a place to which the person ordered can reasonably travel. Section 11I requires the court to attach to a contact order a notice warning of the consequences of breaching the order. Both the person making the children available and the person having contact should be served with the contact order with a warning notice. It is essential that a contact order is drawn in clear terms, so that the parties are in no doubt how to comply with it and will be aware if they are in breach of it. Moreover, the order should be in injunctive terms to all parties. From 8 December 2008, a party can apply to the court for a warning notice to be attached to an order made before (see sections 11(5)(a)-(d)). Of course, if appropriate, the court can discharge an old contact order and reproduce it with a new one, with a warning attached. Section 11J enforcement orders: an order made in response to a breach of a contact order requiring the party in breach to perform unpaid work. Section 11K: the court must be satisfied: of the alleged breach to the criminal standard; that the enforcement order will secure the parties’ compliance with the contact order; and the likely effect of the enforcement order on him/her is proportionate to the seriousness of the breach. that the activity is local to the party and does not have an adverse effect on the attendee (such as exposing a party to domestic violence); the activity does not cause any conflict with religious beliefs or interfere with work or education commitments. The court must not make an enforcement order if: Section 11E: the court must ensure:The court may ask Cafcass: to provide information it needs to satisfy statutory requirements (section 11E(7));to monitor compliance with a CAD or CAC and to report to the court on any failure to comply (section 11G);to monitor compliance by an individual with a contact order, unless it is an excepted order (section 11H), for a specified period not exceeding 12 months. The court may order the individual to help Cafcass to comply with the monitoring order unless the individual is a child who is the parent of a subject child.Sections 11K(1) and 11P(1): contact orders are not enforceable unless the person in breach received or was otherwise informed of the terms of a warning notice when the contact order was made. where the relevant contact order has not been properly served; if it relates to failure by anyone under 18; if it relates to an accepted order.

first_imgFairbanks Senator John Coghill says his bill to allow guns on University of Alaska campuses would be a safety mechanism against situations like last week’s tragic event. He says America does not have a gun problem, but a problem with outlining who can and cannot buy guns such as those with a dangerous agenda or mental illnesses. Sen. Coghill(R-District B): “Previously I’d introduced Senate Bill 176 and it was relating to the regulation of firearms on the University of Alaska. Basically what we were heading to do was to get concealed-carry to be something that would be required of the University since the Board of Regents has a gun policy that was contrary to our state law and our constitution. So we are trying to fix that and yes the answer is I will probably go ahead and bring that back up.” Senator Coghill said Alaska’s concealed carry process adds a layer or security to the aim of his bill. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Flags in Alaska and across the U.S. will remain at half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, October 6, in honor of the victims of last week’s Umpqua Community College shooting in Roseburg, Oregon. After last week’s campus shooting, many Americans are lobbying for increased gun control and assault weapons bans. Sen. Coghill(R-District B): “You go through gun safety issues, you go through the management of a gun, how to spot and respond to dangerous circumstances. It’s a little bit higher level of training, you have to tell authorities when you have a concealed-carry. I think both the training and the accountability are huge and would be a huge benefit to the University system.”last_img read more

first_imgThe ATP tour has suspended main tour and lower tier Challenger tier events for the next six weeks over coronavirus concerns.The development means this month’s Masters 1000 events at the Miami Open and next month’s Monte Carlo Open will not hold.All competitions on both tours will stay cancelled up until April 25 at the earliest.Miami Open tournament director, former top ten player James Blake commented: ‘We were looking forward to hosting another world-class event, but our priority remains the health and safety of everyone involved in the Miami Open, including the South Florida community.The unprecedented move is a response to the coronavirus crisis being declared a pandemic with the ATP concerned that large crowds will exacerbate the spread of the virus.It isn’t clear if the women’s WTA Tour will follow suit but the ITF announced that the new Fed Cup finals week due for mid-April in Budapest has been postponed.The six week hiatus means competition could resume at the Madrid and Italian Opens in May, leading into the French Open although no one is sure how the situation will evolve.At the moment there is no certainty either way how the French Open will be affected, with some projections showing the peak of the virus will not be for another couple of months yet.RelatedCoronavirus: 2020 French Open Moved To SeptemberMarch 17, 2020In “Featured”2020 Laver Cup: Exhibition Tournament Called Off Due To French Open SwitchApril 17, 2020In “Tennis”Federer To Make Sole Clay Court Appearance This Season At Roland GarrosFebruary 14, 2020In “Tennis”last_img read more

first_imgGRAPEVINE, Texas — In hindsight, the 2011 season stands as the defining year in the Southeastern Conference’s dynastic reign over college football: Alabama and LSU met once in the regular season and again in the title game, with the Crimson Tide pulling in the league’s sixth of seven national championships in a row.It might also stand as the last great moment for those leagues once labeled as non-BCS — outside the Bowl Championship Series automatic structure — and now known as the Group of Five: the American Athletic Conference, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference, Mountain West Conference and Sun Belt Conference.In a mock College Football Playoff selection committee based on the 2011 season attended by USA TODAY Sports, two programs then in Group of Five leagues reached New Year’s Six bowls. Ten-win TCU, which won the Mountain West, was pitted against Clemson in the Peach Bowl. Eleven-win Boise State, the Mountain West runner-up, was matched with Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.Another three Group of Five teams sat inside the mock committee’s top 25: No. 20 Southern Mississippi, No. 21 Houston and No. 25 Northern Illinois. It was a different time for non-major programs, which flourished during a brief period of the BCS — from 2004-11 — but whose makeup has been diminished by conference realignment. Of the programs that defined this era, only Boise State remains in the Group of Five; TCU has gone to the Big 12 Conference, Utah to the Pac-12 Conference and Brigham Young to independent status, robbing the Group of Five of three standard-bearers.The gap between the Power Five and the Group of Five has widened considerably in the year since, even as a few teams from the latter have stepped off impressively during the first month-plus of the 2015 season.The American houses four undefeated teams: Houston, Memphis, Navy and Temple. Toledo is unbeaten, with a notable win against Arkansas. Boise State has wins against Washington and Virginia, but a road loss to BYU. Yet as the American heads into the heart of league play — and all four teams seem destined for at least one loss — the likelihood of more than one Group of Five team reaching a Playoff access bowl grows more and more unlikely.And that might be for the duration of the Playoff era. Consider last season, for example, when the final Playoff ranking featured just one Group of Five team, Boise State, in the top 25. Likewise with Amway Coaches Poll and Associated Press poll, which had the Broncos at No. 21 and six non-major programs receiving votes. .oembed-asset-link { background: #fff; border-bottom: 1px solid #e1e1e1; }.oembed-link-anchor { display: block; clear: both; }.oembed-link-thumbnail{ float: left; padding: 14px; }.oembed-link-thumbnail img { max-width: 78px; max-height: 60px; display: block; }p.oembed-link-title { font-size: 75%; color: #009BFF; margin: 0 14px; padding-top: 12px; font-weight:normal; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; }p.oembed-link-desc { font-size: 100%; color: #666; font-weight: normal; margin: 0 14px 14px 14px; font-family: ‘Futura Today Light’; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; } Members of the selection committee “don’t really talk conferences,” said committee chairman Jeff Long, the athletics director at Arkansas. Yet several data points at the committee’s disposal don’t favor teams from the Group of Five level: records against Power Five teams, records against teams in the Playoff top 25 and “opponents’ record ratio,” the latter a formula found by combining an opponent’s record and the record of its own opponents.Several times during the mock seeding process, records against winning teams — opponents with at least six wins — served as the tiebreaker between teams with comparable résumés; after three re-votes, this helped Wisconsin eventually move ahead of Oregon and into the fourth and final spot in the Playoff field.As expected, quality of victory was another oft-cited tiebreaker. Houston won 12 games in 2011, the second-most of any team in the Football Bowl Subdivision, with its one loss coming in the Conference USA championship game. That did nothing to keep the Cougars from finishing at least 10 spots outside of contention for a New Year’s Six bowl.“By our protocol, conference championships come into play when teams are comparable,” Long said.In 2015, these Group of Five champions — let alone the solid second tier of teams that come up short — simply don’t match up with the Power Five. The race for the access bowl ensured the highest-ranked team from a the Group of Five landscape will be intense, with as many as five teams from three different leagues battling for the honor. In this new era, however, there will be only room for one.GALLERY: THIS WEEK’S TOP GAMES .oembed-asset-link { background: #fff; border-bottom: 1px solid #e1e1e1; }.oembed-link-anchor { display: block; clear: both; }.oembed-link-thumbnail{ float: left; padding: 14px; }.oembed-link-thumbnail img { max-width: 78px; max-height: 60px; display: block; }p.oembed-link-title { font-size: 75%; color: #009BFF; margin: 0 14px; padding-top: 12px; font-weight:normal; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; }p.oembed-link-desc { font-size: 100%; color: #666; font-weight: normal; margin: 0 14px 14px 14px; font-family: ‘Futura Today Light’; text-align: left; line-height: 120%; } USA TODAY SPORTS WIREUSA TODAY Sports college football staff picks for Week 6 USA TODAYFlailing USC needs Chip Kelly as its coach, not Steve Sarkisianlast_img read more
