Stunning line-up for gypsy jazz festival in Ramelton

first_imgALL ROADS lead to Ramelton this weekend for a feast of brilliant music at the Django Sur Lennon Gypsy Jazz Festival.One of the styles of jazz performed is what has today become known as “gypsy jazz” or gypsy swing.This style of jazz is most often attributed to gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grapelli who founded the all strings jazz ensemble, The Quintet du Hot Club de France, in the 1930s in Paris, France. This style is at times also referred to as “jazz manouche”, from the French term meaning “gypsy”. The style’s creation often being attributed to Django, the musical characteristics and the blending of gypsy musical elements with jazz and the fact that it has largely been fellow gypsies (until recently) who have carried and preserved the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt since his death in 1953, makes the term “jazz manouche” one that is quite fitting in describing this genre.With this in mind, a wonderful celebration of this music genre comes to the heritage town of Ramelton this weekend.For more check out Django Sur Lennon on Facebook.Here’s a line-up of what’s ahead: Friday 28th Oct  8pm – 10pm Town HallRomane and guestsSat 29th 11am – 1pm.Gypsy Jazz guitar workshop hosted by Romane.Sat 29th 2 – 4pm Kourosh Kanini and guests… Mystery venue! Bus from Gamble’s square at 1.45pm.

Kurtenbach: The Warriors’ latest loss is a reminder of who their top rival is. (Hint: it’s not the Rockets)

first_imgThe Rockets deserved to win Thursday night’s game against the Warriors.Not because of James Harden’s incredible 3-pointer with one second remaining in overtime.Not because of his 41 prior points or 15 assists.Not even because Kevin Durant was so far out of bounds he should have been wearing a fleece vest and holding a $18 beer when he “saved” a Warriors possession in the final minute of overtime, setting up a Stephen Curry go-ahead basket. No, the Rockets deserved to win Thursday …last_img

Nebraska wind farms sue to enforce contract and keep utility from flying off into the sunset

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Evin Bachelor, Law Fellow, Ohio State University Extension Agricultural & Resource Law ProgramThree Nebraska windfarms in a power supply contract with the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) have filed suit to prevent the utility from backing out of the contract.  The wind farms filed a complaint in federal court in Nebraska on Jan. 30, alleging that NPPD expressed its intention to terminate a power purchase agreement, and that doing so would be wrongful.The complaint explains NPPD’s position that the wind farms materially violated the contract by investing in other businesses and operations.  The plaintiffs disagree that there was a breach, but say that even if there was, NPPD cannot terminate the contract because it knew of the transactions.  The plaintiffs also note that NPPD has eminent domain power.They argue that by terminating the contract, NPPD knows that the wind farms will likely enter default with creditors.  This could allow NPPD to acquire the rights of the wind farms through a foreclosure sale or eminent domain.  To prevent NPPD from terminating the contract, the parties requested, and were granted, a temporary restraining order until March 1st that requires NPPD to honor the contract.  The case is cited as Laredo Ridge Wind, LLC v. Nebraska Pub. Power Dist., No. 8:19-cv-45 (D. Neb.).last_img read more

NRC: Tribunal questions process of identifying foreigners

first_imgAn order by a Foreigners’ Tribunal in central Assam’s Morigaon district has questioned the process of identifying foreigners and ‘D’ (or doubtful voters) who have been struck off the updated National Register of Citizens.Gautam Soren, member of Foreigners Tribunal 3 (FT3) in Morigaon, highlighted “unfair practices” in the process in his August 27 order while dismissing a case against Amina Khatun and three others (termed opposite parties or OPs) of the district’s Madhya Kalikajari village. He observed that foreigners’ cases “at this juncture have assumed the form of an industry as each and every person involved” with such cases have been “trying to mint money by any means”.FT3 is one of the 100 Foreigners’ Tribunals functioning in Assam for the process of detecting and deporting illegal migrants. A tribunal member is a judge or an advocate with at least 10 years of practice.Mr. Soren’s order said the case against the OPs was filed ex-parte – meaning one of the parties involved was not present or not represented – in November 2017 because of “wrong report” by the process server, usually a member of Assam Police’s Border Organisation attached to the police station concerned.The Border Organisation was set up in 1962 under Prevention of Infiltration of Pakistani (PIP) scheme.Hung on polesThe order pointed out that the pre-case notice to the OPs was reportedly hung on an electric pole though the “entire village did not have any electricity”. It also rebuked Durllav Chandra Bora, the gaonburah or headman of Kalikajari area, for signing the “wrong report” before it was even prepared, and senior lawyer Najrul Talukdar for voluntarily trying to “support the irregularities of the gaonburah and the process server”.Mr. Soren’s order observed that the gaonburah knew all the OPs but, as per norm, did not accompany process server Deepak K. Patar for serving the notice, as has been the case for “two and a half years”.The order referred to similar summons to people to appear for hearing being put up at waiting sheds, on trees or electric poles despite “this Tribunal innumerable times in various foreigners’ cases directing all these persons” not to do so.Likening the foreigners’ cases to a lucrative “industry”, Mr. Soren said the village heads in connivance with the process server “try to get cases proceeded ex-parte for some extraneous consideration”. He also advised filing of specific damage suits by the OPs against those responsible for their ordeal.Still a foreignerPranjal Kumar Das, Ms. Khatun’s lawyer, said the FT3 case dismissal did not automatically remove the ‘foreigner’s tag from his clients’ names. “We have appealed to the Gauhati High Court for a final word. The case will be listed soon,” he told The Hindu.Morigaon district’s Deputy Commissioner Hemen Das said the gaonburah responsible for the wrong report in FT3 has been suspended and an enquiry ordered.According to lawyer-activist Aman Wadud, the Morigaon case is just the tip of the iceberg. “Assam Border police and Election Commission have violated more fundamental rights of citizens than all other agencies put together. They accuse Indian citizens of being illegal immigrants without any investigation whatsoever. These two organisations have destroyed lakhs of families,” he alleged.Targets setThis happens because the Border Police are given targets to provide foreigners’ cases, he said. A Border Police officer, declining to be quoted, admitted that outposts in the districts are required to provide 20 cases a month while the target for each urban police station is five or six.“Incentives and promotions based on the number of cases provided are a factor in fieldworkers serving notices to people randomly,” the officer said.“We have had cases of policemen and their informers targeting poor, illiterate people and demanding money from them, threatening to label them ‘foreigners’ if they do not pay up,” Aurobindo Roy of Silchar-based Unconditional Citizenship Demand Forum said.Silchar-based lawyer and activist Dharmananda Deb said serving ex-parte notice is a strategy to force people to a Tribunal in order not be declared a foreigner without even being heard.“In order to procure mandatory certified copies of electoral rolls from election offices, a person served notice engages a lawyer or clerk who charges for himself and for the staff at the election offices. Many Tribunals require about seven to eight certified copies of different electoral rolls to be somewhat satisfied of the person’s claim of citizenship and each one, on an average, costs about Rs. 500-1000,” he said.“For obtaining certified copy of electoral roll of 1965/1966, one has to submit documents of 1965/1966, which is quite impossible for many OPs. Because of lack of documents, many OPs are declared foreigners or doubtful voters by the Tribunal,” he said.last_img read more
