Find out latest on travel to Cuba

first_imgIt seems like everyone is going to Cuba or wants to. Some want to go before U.S. “tourists” spoil Cuba. But wait a minute, isn’t “tourism” still formally prohibited by U.S law? What is ethical travel to Cuba anyway?Help spread the word and register to discuss Cuba issues. Questions will be taken on Sunday, July 10 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern time during a webinar, or can be asked on Facebook event page bit.ly/1WWUMob, Twitter #AskAboutCubaTravel or via email to [email protected] The webinar is free, but registration is required at bit.ly/1YzgvBN.During the webinar, Art Heitzer from the National Lawyers Guild and its Cuba Subcommittee and Bob Guild from Marazul Charters will provide up-to-date information about the changing landscape of Cuba travel. They are both well prepared and experienced in Cuba travel since 1959.Working with the Center for Constitutional Rights, Heitzer on behalf of the NLG helped train and establish a network of over 50 lawyers in the U.S. to assist travelers who had visited or wanted to visit Cuba. He also assisted in the defense of all the “Trials for Travel,” approximately one dozen administrative prosecutions under the administration of George W. Bush, as well as directly representing dozens of Cuba travelers. This included the Methodist Three, in which the government settled their case with no penalty after Heitzer filed unprecedented counterclaims alleging racial profiling and interference with religious practices. In the last 25 years, he has counseled over 1,000 Cuba travelers, usually pro bono, and continues to do so.Guild has been sending groups to Cuba since 1977. He worked with the Venceremos Brigade for many years and is currently vice president of Marazul Charters.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Arlington Heights pitcher joins high school record books

Twitter Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday printAn Arlington Heights High School baseball player is making history.Blair Henley, a senior at Arlington Heights, threw three consecutive no-hitters in a row starting March 17 against the Fort Worth Southwest Raiders.Only two players have thrown more in the history of high school baseball.Henley threw the next no-hitter March 24, and the third April 1. His streak was finally broken by Waco-Midway April 8 when he gave up a hit in the first inning.Henley said the pressure was starting to mount when he threw his third no-hitter, but he tried to block it out as best he could.“I really wasn’t thinking about it, I was just going into it,” said Henley.Henley gave credit to his coach, Shad Whiteley, who is in charge of calling pitches during the games.“My coach does a really good job at calling pitches. My catcher catches it where he needs to,” said Henley. “They’re the other piece of the puzzle.”Whiteley talked about the mentality of a pitcher.“I was a pitcher myself,” said Whiteley. “It is what it is. You’re gonna give up some hits, I don’t feel like I was second guessing myself.”Henley is committed to play at the University of Texas next year, but that hasn’t stopped MLB scouts from watching him pitch or Henley considering the draft.“The decision comes down to the day,” said Henley. “I’m really confident in both. Fall back to getting drafted or going to college, I have two good options behind my back.”Henley and the Yellow Jackets have five more games in the regular season and Henley is looking forward to a deep playoff run.“We’re really just excited to play some better teams, really see what we can do and play for as long as we can.”The Yellow Jackets are 14-6 so far this season and will play South Hills High School April 22 at 7:30 p.m. Kevin Peters Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature + posts Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/ ReddIt Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/ Facebook Previous articleKickball tournament raises money to kick out cancerNext articleTCU’s new med school could be option for graduating seniors Kevin Peters RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Linkedin Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/ Dylan Thomas back from injury, signs with TCU TCU Bass Fishing reels in fourth place finish at last tournament TCU’s home field advantage: One of the best in the Big 12 Linkedin Twitter Facebook ReddIt Paschal Baseball sets high hopes for the season, conference playlast_img read more

Freelance writing helped me stay afloat throughout college and grad school by giving me a way to earn steady income while keeping a flexible schedule and it’s become a cornerstone of my career today. AB5 threatens my main source of income and puts me at a disadvantage with most companies simply because I live in California. I’m seriously concerned about how the law will change my work and daily life and I’m wary each time I get a new gig because I’m just not sure how long it’s going to last. It’s really thrown a wrench in my sense of job security.”Kiley and Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Murrieta) co-authored AB 1928 as an urgency measure that would have returned the legal standard of what independent contracting was before AB 5 was enacted at the beginning of the year.The duo felt that the State Legislature should suspend the changes that were made until there were further considerations made.Kiley’s motion was largely rejected because of procedural issues and Gonzales suddenly announced that there were going to be changes made to AB 5 that she felt would make the bill more palatable by those affected.After the vote squashed Kiley’s motion to repeal AB 5, Assemblywoman Gonzales took to Twitter to further express her feelings.“When we passed #AB 5 last year, we acknowledged our work to provide clarity following the #Dynamex decision wasn’t done. After more than a year of meetings, fact-findings and discussions with freelance writers and journalists, we’re making changes…”Soon after the vote, Assemblyman Kiley spoke to the press about his disappointment with the motion’s defeat.“The Assembly consciously chose to keep enforcing a law that everyone, including the author, acknowledges has major problems and is destroying people’s lives. I’ve never been more ashamed of this legislative body.” Business News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Finding an element of public interest in the question, a Single Bench of Justice B Sudeendhra Kumar opined that an authoritative pronouncement was necessary as to whether such a request could be entertained. The Court observed, Considering the seriousness of the question involved in this case, I am of the view that an authoritative pronouncement by a Division Bench is necessary in this case. The applicant had beseeched the Court to issue directions to the Nodal Officers concerned to furnish the call details of certain persons, among whom were certain excise officers who investigated narcotics offences in the state. In his application, he prayed that the name of the subscriber, call details and the tower location of the mobile phone numbers of certain persons be produced. Pertinently, his earlier application to in this respect had been dismissed by a subordinate court. The State vehemently opposed the request, placing on record its objection to a request for these details. It was contended that Investigating Agencies relied on secret information from the public and rival groups to detect offences and that allowing the accused this information would be a risk to the lives of informants. The Court’s reference order records these submissions as stating, The call details of the Investigating Officer would include the number from which the secret information was received by the Investigating Officer. There may be rival fractions of drug dealers and mafias. If they get the particulars of the informant, it would endanger the life of that person. Several incidents of such type are there and most of the cases are not reported, if the informant who met with the dire consequences, is a member of a gang engaged in illegal activities of narcotic drugs. Agreeing that furnishing call details on such terms would be detrimental to public interest, Justice Kumar observed that the question raised it was serious. This was especially so considering that the public would be deterred from divulging secret information about the offences, the Court mused. The Court noted that there were only two pronouncements relating to call details. The first such order was a directive from 2017 wherein the High Court directed to keep in safe custody the call details, tower locations and other details of certain mobile numbers for a certain period. The other was an Order from February 2019, where a Singe Bench of the High Court directed the service providers concerned to preserve the tower locations and call details in respect of some of the Police Officers. Stating that no other decision has been brought to the notice of this Court in this regard by the Bar, the Court said, “I am of the view that the question as to whether the call details, pertaining to the mobile phones of the Police Officers, can be directed to be given to persons accused of having committed serious offences like NDPS cases involving commercial quantity of narcotic drug, is a question involving public interest” The Court therefore, directed the Registry to place its reference order along with the case file before the Chief Justice for a decision on whether the matter merited the consideration of a higher benchClick Hear To Download/Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more
