Converted fullback Paul Whitmill will also return to his former position of linebacker, Patterson said.Redshirt freshman linebacker Ty Summers is also expected to contribute at the position.In other injury news, Patterson said senior defensive end James McFarland will have surgery next week after stepping on a sprinkler head and breaking his toe.“Some years you stay out of the [injury] jinx and some you don’t,” Patterson added.Patterson said that the team will look into medical redshirts for both Douglas and McFarland.The injury issues aren’t just on the defensive side of the ball. Patterson said wide receiver Josh Doctson and running back Aaron Green need to get in better shape to get back to their levels of play from last season.TCU fans will also see some new faces on the field against Saturday.Patterson said that fans will likely see freshmen Jaelan Austin, DeShawn Raymond, Arico Evans, Julius Lewis, Breylin Mitchell and Tipa Galeai against SFA.The Frogs will play their home opener at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Separatist threats against cable TV operators in Kashmir

first_img Help by sharing this information News February 23, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on India May 15, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Separatist threats against cable TV operators in Kashmir Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about threats by separatist groups against cable TV operators in Kashmir during the past week that led operators to suspend some entertainment channels.“Over the years, armed separatist groups have become more and more threatening towards the media in Kashmir,” the organisation said. “We call on all the separatist movements to stop intimidating journalists and let them work freely. We also urge the authorities to ensure that the equipment and premises of cable TV operators are protected.”The latest wave of threats began on 9 May when operators suspended four channels – Star Movie, Star World, AXN and Reality TV – as a result of pressure from a rebel group called the al Madina Regiment, which described them as “obscene.”Other militant groups visited the offices of operators in Srinagar over the next few days and threatened them, prompting them to suspend 40 stations on 10 May. They nonetheless resumed service the next day after receiving support from the police and certain organisations such as Hizbul Mujahideen, the leading militant group in Kashmir.Operators suspended service again on 12 May after being threatened with suicide attacks and after complaining that they were not getting enough police protection.After more than 150 media workers staged a demonstration against the threats in Srinagar on 13 May and several militant groups voiced support for the operators, distribution of most of the cable stations resumed yesterday.At least five journalists were injured in indiscriminate bombings by radical separatists last year, while 10 others were physically attacked by police.

There has to be some norms in deciding cases having element of urgency”, Sibal said.CJI S A Bobde replied that the adjournment in the case was sought by both sides on different occasions. “Anyway we will bear in mind this aspect and reject such requests of adjournment”, the CJI remarked before dismissing the petition as infructuous.The writ petition was filed by Congress MLA Vinay Saxena seeking to declare the disqualification of 22 MLAs, who had resigned from the Congress party leading to the toppling down of the Kamal Nath government.While the writ petition was pending in the Supreme Court, the Protem Speaker dismissed the disqualification applications in June stating that the MLAs had ceased to be members of the assembly on account of their resignations. Therefore, the disqualification applications filed after the resignation of those MLAs were not maintainable, ruled the Speaker.A challenge against this decision was incorporated in the pending writ petition in the Supreme Court by amending it based on the argument that a Protem Speaker was not competent to decide on disqualification application, as he was appointed for the limited purpose of holding the trust vote.Next Storylast_img read more
