If you walk by my desk in the newsroom you’ll immediately know I’m Post Malone’s biggest fan. I’m always looking for a good story to tell! If you have any story ideas, feel free to reach out! Go Panthers! Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Facebook Twitter What to watch during quarantine printThe sixth-seeded Horned Frogs exploded offensively in Wednesday night’s 12-2 victory over the third-seeded Texas Tech Red Raiders in seven innings due to the mercy rule.The Red Raider’s pitching misfires provided the Horned Frogs with 14 walks.The win marks TCU’s twelfth in their last 17 ballgames.“Certainly excited to win a ball game,” Head Coach Jim Schlossnalge said. “We aren’t in any position to complain about how it looks or the way it happened. We just need to survive and advance.”Pushed back two hours from its original start time due to the previous game running long, the game’s first pitch from Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, Okla. was not thrown until 9:30 p.m.“It might make a difference for a 47-year-old coach,” Schlossnagle said. “It doesn’t make a big difference for these guys. We’ve been waiting around to play all day.”Sophomore pitcher Nick Lodolo got the nod on the mound Wednesday night and limited an offensive threat from the Red Raiders. In 4.2 innings of action, he allowed one earned run on seven hits, walking four batters and fanning six.Nick Lodolo silenced Texas Tech’s offensive firepower Wednesday night. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Horned Frogs clicked offensively in the second inning and exploded for an early six-run lead over the Red Raiders.“That really boosted our morale and took some pressure off our pitcher,” junior right fielder A.J. Balta said. “It allowed us to open up the way that we play the game as an offense and as a defense.”Texas Tech’s starting pitcher Ryan Sublette could not find the strike zone in his short, one-inning outing. He allowed four earned runs, walking five and fanning only one batter. Junior center fielder Johnny Rizer opened the second inning with a single into right field and Sublette followed with three consecutive walks to sophomore catcher Zach Humphreys, senior first baseman Connor Wanhanen and first-year shortstop Adam Oviedo to score Rizer and keep the bases loaded.Following Oviedo’s walk, Sublette was pulled for sophomore Caleb Freeman. The pitching change did not fix Tech’s struggles. Sophomore third baseman Conner Shepherd singled into center field, scoring Wanhanen and Humphreys and advancing Oviedo to second. Junior left fielder Josh Watson was hit to load the bases and Balta ripped a three-run double into center field to clear the bases.“I’m proud of A.J. for getting a big hit,” Schlossnagle said. “We haven’t had too many bases-clearing doubles to this point this year. That was a big one for us.”The Red Raiders threatened in the bottom of the second inning as Lodolo walked designated hitter Zach Rheams and surrendered a double to first baseman Cameron Warren to put two runners in scoring position with zero outs. Lodolo responded with a strikeout, groundout and tagged Rheams out at the plate following a wild pitch to keep the lead at six.TCU extended their lead in the fourth inning. Following a walk to Watson, Balta doubled to centerfield to put two runners in scoring position with no outs. Landestoy followed with a single up the middle to score both Watson and Balta, which increased TCU’s lead to eight runs.Shepherd opened up the fifth inning with a walk and ultimately worked his way around the bases and scored TCU’s ninth run of the ballgame. He advanced to second on a walk to Boulware and moved to third after Watson flew out to right field. Balta flew out to centerfield, scoring Shepherd for his fiftieth RBI of the season.A.J. Balta’s first Big 12 Championship game was highlighted by his bases-clearing double. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoLodolo surrendered his first run of the game in the fifth inning. Red Raider catcher Braxton Fulford singled and scored from second base off a single by third baseman Josh Jung. An infield single by left fielder Grant Little loaded the bases and Schlossnagle called on the bullpen to finish the job.Fellow sophomore Charles King entered the game to relieve Lodolo and his first pitch flew past Humphreys for a wild pitch and scored Brian Klein from third base.In two innings pitched, King allowed zero earned runs on three hits, striking out four and walking none.“We put all hands on deck to win a ballgame,” Schlossnagle said. “Charles King bounced back quick. I wanted to limit the number of pitches he threw because we’re going to need him again in this tournament.”The Frogs responded to Texas Tech’s two-run inning with a run of their own. Rizer opened up the sixth inning with a walk and scored on a Humphreys double down the left field line to score him from first, extending TCU’s lead back to eight runs.TCU continued to pile on the runs in the seventh inning. Landestoy lead off the inning with a double and was followed by three consecutive walks to Humphreys, Rizer, and Wanhanen, which scored Landestoy to lead 11-2. An RBI groundout by Oviedo scored Rizer from third, giving the Horned Frogs their largest lead of the night at 10 runs.With TCU leading by 10 runs following the seventh inning, the game was called on the league’s 10-run mercy rule.The Frogs are aware of their precarious fate headed into the Big 12 Championship, likely needing to win the conference tournament to qualify for the NCAA Tournament.“We know the position we’re in,” Wanhanen said. “I don’t think there’s any sense of panic, there’s more sense of urgency. We know what we have to do and that’s taking it one pitch at a time for the rest of the week. This is a great start to the week.”With the victory, the Horned Frogs are scheduled to face No. 7 West Virginia in the winner’s bracket, fresh off a victory over No. 2 Oklahoma State. First pitch against the Mountaineers is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Noting that “in such times, the question of attending to the children of the parents who are in prison undergoing sentence assumes importance”, the High Court sought from the Public Prosecutors “the information regarding the steps and measurements which the government may have taken to take care of such destitute children, who are in the Welfare Homes”. The Division Bench was informed that “the Juvenile Justice Committee of the High Court of Gujarat, Ministry of Women and Child Development and the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and the State Government have taken measures through the Department of Social Justice and Empowerment, Government of Gujarat”.

Mohit Saraf had sought interim orders from the High Court regarding the alleged termination of his partnership by Rajiv Luthra.

Das, Anusha Nagarajan, Raghuvendra Singh and Arushi Mishra.

News story: Home Office tells business: open up on modern slavery or face further action

first_imgIt comes as government buildings, including 10 Downing Street and the Home Office, prepare to light up red to show their support for Anti-Slavery Day 2018.The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and the Department for Health and Social Care will also be turning red this evening (Thursday 17 October) to mark the day.Businesses and landmarks across the UK – including London’s BT Tower, Manchester’s Co-Op HQ, Bristol’s Old Vic Theatre and Nottingham Trent’s Cricket Ground – are lined up to follow suit.Earlier this year, Frank Field MP, Maria Miller MP and Baroness Butler-Sloss were asked to independently review the ground-breaking Modern Slavery Act, brought in by Prime Minister Theresa May as Home Secretary.To ensure we continue to tackle this evolving crime they will consider whether laws should be further strengthened to ensure companies take action to address forced labour from supply chains at home and abroad.The review will consider a full range of options to drive compliance including tougher sanctions. The Home Office intends to publish a list of non-compliant companies failing to publish a Modern Slavery Statement at the end of the financial year.In addition, the Home Office has published the Modern Slavery Annual Report 2018. The Home Office is writing directly to chief executives of 17,000 businesses telling them to open up about modern slavery in their supply chains, or risk being named as in breach of the law.Businesses with a turnover of more than £36 million must publish annual transparency statements, known as a Modern Slavery Statement, setting out what they are doing to stop modern slavery and forced labour practices occurring in their business and supply chains.At the moment, it is estimated that 60% of companies in scope have published a statement. Whilst there are many examples of good practice, some of these statements are poor in quality or fail to even meet the basic legal requirements.Minister for Crime, Safeguarding and Vulnerability Victoria Atkins said: It is horrible to think some of the goods and services we buy could have been produced by someone forced into modern slavery. This is abhorrent and as global leaders in the fight against modern slavery, we will not tolerate it. Some businesses are already leading the way in taking action by being open and transparent about what they are doing to identify, tackle and prevent forced labour in their supply chains, but too many are still failing to meet their basic legal obligations. That’s why the Home Office is sending letters to businesses today with a clear message that continued non-compliance will not be tolerated.last_img read more
