Vodafone to sell the Nexus S Google phone after deal with Carphone ends

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THE Google-branded Nexus S smartphone will end its exclusive run with the Carphone Warehouse, with Vodafone revealing it will start stocking the handset.Vodafone did not confirm when the handset will be available but it is understood it could be in UK stores as soon as March. City A.M. revealed last year the handset, manufactured by Samsung, would go on sale in an exclusive deal with Carphone Warehouse and its partner Best Buy, despite outgoing Google chief executive Eric Schmidt claiming there would be no follow-up phone to the original Nexus One. The partnership with Carphone Warehouse was seen by analysts as an experiment with its distribution model. The original Nexus was tied to an exclusive deal with Vodafone in the UK. Despite building a cult following the handset, built by HTC, failed to make a splash when it was released last year.

Cricket News : Ramnaresh Sarwan’s first reaction on Gayle’s outburst, take…

first_img“Gayle refers to an incident as far back as 24 years ago, of which I have no recollection. He claimed that I caused him to be sent home from Barbados during a tour, because he was watching television all night in the room which I shared with him. This is a total fabrication. No competent management would remove from a series, a player of Chris’ calibre, on such a trivial allegation.“I categorically deny any involvement in the decision or the decision-making process, which led to Gayle’s non-selection to represent the Jamaica Tallawahs in the 2020Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Tournament. In fact, the management of the franchise itself has issued a public statement that, ‘the truth is that this decision was made collectively by the Ownership and Management team which did not include Mr. Ramnaresh Sarwan and based purely on business and cricketing reasoning,’” Sarwan said.The 39-year-old Guyanese also explained his association with the Jamaica Tallawahs.“I have been officially attached to the Jamaica Tallawahs since 2018. I was first offered to play for the side. I refused, because I felt that young and upcoming Jamaican and regional talents as well as overseas players, ought to be given that opportunity. I was then offered the positionof head coach but deferred to Mark O’Donnell, who was with the team several years prior. Instead, I accepted the position of assistant coach. In 2019, I was appointed head coach. I reached out to Chris and discussed with him, the selection of a team. I did so out of respect for him.“In my conversation with Gayle about the team, he informed me that Donovan Miller, a Jamaican and a very close friend of Chris should be appointed head coach as he would better understand the culture of the Jamaican players. I conveyed Gayle’s view to the CEO, informing the CEO that I would be happy to step aside for Miller’s appointment given that Chris feels strongly about his appointment.My priority was what would be in the best interest of the team. Gayle is fully aware of the background, yet he accuses me of fighting to be head coach.“I accept full responsibility for my recommending that the team management consider imposing a curfew on players prior to matches. And I stand by that decision. Such restrictions are standard operational procedures in almost every international sport, so that when it is time for performance on the field, the players are physically and mentally prepared for the challenges. In any event, the curfew was never implemented, so I do not understand why Gayle has made this an issue. Former West Indies captain Ramnaresh Sarwan has sought to set the record straight following accusations made against him by former teammate Christopher Gayle via a YouTube video a few days ago. Gayle, also a former West Indies captain, accused Sarwan of being complicit in his non-retention by the Jamaica Tallawahs franchise for the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season.

Sarwan described Gayle’s video as unfortunate and said the Jamaican had levelled false accusations against him and tarnished his good name and reputation.

I reply, not because I feel that Gayle’s rantings are worthy of it, but because I feel that the public’s record must be set straight and also, to protect the character and careers of so many people, whose image he sought to besmirch. No doubt, Gayle’s utterances has done immeasurable damage to the “gentleman’s game” of cricket, in particular, West Indian cricket. As a former international cricketer, who had the privilege of donning West Indian colours, I feel compelled to speak in defence of this great sport which has unified the Caribbean more than anything else over the past 50 years. It is my sincere hope that Gayle’s damnation has not irreparably damage the unity and brotherhood which cricket has forged across the West Indies,” Sarwan said in a prepared statement.He added: “Let me make it abundantly clear, that I have played with Gayle from the inception of my international career and I have always respected him as an extraordinary talent, a colleague and most importantly, a close friend. Hence, my utter shock by these scandalous allegations. He was welcomed in and is loved by, my immediate family. He has hurt them terribly. Fans will recall, that when Ian Chappell called for Gayle to be banned from international cricket because of remarks he made to a female journalist, I issued a public call for fans to rally around Gayle.I stood up for him on every such occasion. But this missive is not about that,” Sarwan said.He also denied being responsible for Gayle being sent home from Under-19 West Indies duties, as well as his being dropped by the Tallawahs.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE NAMES of 253 women who lived and died behind the walls of the Good Shepherd Convent in Limerick echoed across a snowy Mount St Lawrence cemetery last Sunday.In what was the sixth year of the remembrance ceremony, people gathered to share poems, to lay flowers and to bear witness to the memory of the women buried in a mass grave.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Camilla O’Donoghue, one of the event organisers, quoted the lyrics from Joni Mitchell’s ‘The Magdalene Laundries’.“Peg O’Connell died today, she was a cheeky girl, a flirt. They just stuffed her in a hole. Surely to God, you’d think at least some bells should ring.“One day I’m going to die here too and they will plant me in the dirt, like some lame bulb that never blooms come any spring. Not any spring.”Ms O’Donoghue said this was for “all the Peg O’Connells” buried in Magdalene graves around the country.“We’re so sorry we didn’t listen, and nobody heard, and may your souls rest in peace.”She thanked Cllr John Gilligan whom she said “played a huge part” in having the names inscribed on the monument.As the snowfall intensified, Cllr Gilligan said it was good to see people attend on a cold and wet day because “these people came from a very cold place”.“We can only hope in our hearts that some place along the line, maybe some little ray of sunshine entered into their lives.“The idea of having their names inscribed here was very important to me. When you take a look around, all these gravestones are not to mark the fact a person died. They are to mark the fact that a person lived; they had a name. This is now a sacred place.“They are here, we remember every single one of them, we remember what they went through. They are now part and parcel of us. This is no longer a burial pit, this is a sacred place and we should always remember that.”After the names of the Limerick Magdalenes were read out, Marian O’Rourke recited one of her poems from her collection about the Magdalene Laundries.

Homeownership: Through the Eyes of Black America

Providing historical context and how it connects to the current issues at hand, Charmaine Brown, Director, External Outreach and Engagement, Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at Fannie Mae, recalled the first 250 Years in America, wherein African-Americans had no property rights, and were locked out of the American Dream of homeownership, until the Fair Housing Act came in to being in April 1968. In her presentation, she also elucidated on what the data says about African-American homeownership.”As we kick off our celebration of 400 years of African American history, I can think of no better topic to begin than to discuss the current state of homeownership and potential solutions for improvement. I’d like to thank Charmaine Brown for her thought-provoking presentation,” said Derek Templeton, Executive Director & Associate General Counsel at Five Star Institute.Brown pointed out that “African-American homeownership rates are the same as it used to be in 1968, whereas the number of incarcerations in the community as well as the wealth gap between black and white families tripled between 1968-2016.” Currently, the homeownership rate among African-Americans is the lowest of all racial groups at 41.8 percent, lagging consistently behind white homeownership rate.African-Americans have been the slowest to recover from the housing crisis; with their homeownership rate at nearly 6 percentage points lower than in 2010. “While Hispanics and other ethnic groups experienced an increase in homeownership, African-American homeownership rate dropped by 4.8 percentage points between 2000-2017. So, while others are moving forward, African-Americans are moving in the other direction,” Brown said.Interestingly, the younger demographic have seen a greater decline in homeownership in the community. Moreover, the net worth of African-Americans significantly lags the net worth of other groups. Homeownership is seen as one of the primary means of wealth creation, however, African-American homeownership has not recovered from the aftermath of the 2007 financial crisis.Pointing out to generational implications, Brown addressed wealth and homeownership transfers from parents. She also touched on the effects of predatory lending during the housing boom, wherein African-American and Hispanic communities were primary targets of highly exploitative practices, which further exacerbated the situation. African-Americans were more likely to be given subprime products during this period, which led to a significantly higher foreclosure rate between 2007-2009.The webinar also explored ways to diversify the appraisal industry through homebuyer education, community partnerships, strategic alliances, and financial literacy.Click here to view the webinar.

In their rejoinder affidavit, filed though Advocates Shashwat Anand and Ankur Azad, it is alleged, “Since several days prior to the arrest of the petitioners while en route to Hathras, a large section of the Media had been running programmes on a false and humbug agenda of ‘Conspiracy to instigate Riots and create Caste-based unrest’ and ‘International Conspiracy to defame Govt. with funding from Islamic States’ in context of the Hathras gangrape incident.” It adds, “The said agenda was run by the Media Outlets purely on communal and divisive lines, targeting the Opposition Parties and their Leaders for the said ‘Conspiracy.’ However, the petitioners, who are not associated, affiliated or related to any political party or dispensation, were unlawfully arrested and detained in an utter travesty of their fundamental rights guaranteed by the Part III of the Constitution, in a blistering display of collusion and high-handedness of the police authorities, administration and the media.” False statements and misconcieved counter affidavit It is stated that the allegations levelled against the Petitioners viz., quarrelling with the police personnel, or efforts to create communal war in the State, or dividing Dalit group against other caste and also against the State, or to unite Dalit group to create proxy war against the State, are all “cooked up, concocted, misleading and untrue, drawn on communal and divisive lines”. Criminal contempt of court The Petitioners have alleged that in the counter affidavit, the State Government has made a statement on oath that the Sessions Judge, vide order dated January 4, has extended the period of judicial remand of the Petitioners by 180 days. It is contended that the said order was in fact passed by Additional Sessions Judge, Mathura, who is not a competent Court under the NIA Act. The rejoinder states, “This statement is palpably false and has dishonestly and deliberately been made with a view to confound the matter and mislead the Court. In fact, the said extension order has not been passed by the Ld. Sessions Judge, to the contrary, it has been passed by the Additional Sessions Judge, Court No. 1, Mathura, who is not a competent Court under the NIA Act. Using the expression “Sessions Judge” for ‘Additional Sessions Judge’ is not an inadvertent mistake, rather it is a conscious and deliberate act of the deponent swearing and filing the said affidavit, which is patently false and amounts to Criminal Contempt of Court.” Investigation legally vitiated for non-compliance of Law The Petitioners have alleged that the entire investigation in this case has proceeded in utter disregard of Section 6 of the NIA Act. As per this provision, the Police authorities shall forward a report to the State Government in case of receipt of information relating to commission of any Scheduled Offence. State Government shall forward such report to the Central Government as expeditiously as possible which in turn will determine, within 15 days, whether the offence is a Scheduled Offence or not and also whether it is a fit case to be investigated by the NIA. In the rejoinder it is alleged that nowhere has it been mentioned by the UP Government whether the above provisions have been complied with. “Accordingly, the entire investigation being carried on by the State Government and its investigating agencies, amounts to usurpation of jurisdiction of the Central Government and a fraud on law and the NIA Act,” it states. Illegality of Custody It may be noted that the Petitioners have challenged the order of judicial remand, inasmuch as it was passed by the Court of Magistrate, which is alleged to not be a competent authority for dealing with cases under the scheduled offences of UAPA, in terms of Section 13(1) of the National Investigation Agency Act, 2008. When this issue was raised in the writ petition, the UP Police’s Special Task Force (which is investigating the case), moved an application to transfer all the Remand Records from the Court of CJM, Mathura to the Court of Additional District and Sessions Judge, Mathura. The application was allowed and the District and Sessions Judge, Mathura transferred the case to Additional District and Session Judge. Case Against Siddique Kappan & 3 others Transferred To Addl. District & Sessions Judge On UP Police’s Application The Petitioners have now submitted that the said order of the ASJ suffers from the vice of inherent lack of jurisdiction and is total nullity and further, and is also void for the reason that the Ld. ASJ, Mathura, cannot ‘accept/ratify’ the non est remand order passed by the CJM, Mathura, as the same also suffers from inherent lack of jurisdiction. The matter is listed for hearing on February 18, 2021.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
