Recognized as one of the world’s largest and most prestigious exhibitions of antiquarian books, the Book Fair gives visitors the opportunity to see, learn about and purchase the finest in rare and valuable books, manuscripts, autographs, graphics, photographs and more. The 2014 edition of the Book Fair will also include a special celebration of William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday.Featuring the collections and rare treasures of 200 booksellers from the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, the Book Fair will present volumes from five centuries of printing, as well as original manuscripts that predate Gutenberg. Books will cover every imaginable area of interest — from the history of travel and exploration, early science and medicine to classic literature, modern first editions, children’s and illustrated books, and the arts. Items range in price from a few dollars to more than six figures.“Because of Shakespeare’s enduring influence on literature and the arts, we couldn’t let this milestone birthday pass without celebrating his genius,” said Michael R. Thompson, Book Fair Chair of the Southern California Chapter of the ABAA, which organizes the event. “The Book Fair is all about bringing people closer to books by giving them a chance to browse, touch and even go home with items that they might imagine could only be found in a museum or special collections library. We’re really excited about connecting people with Shakespeare in the same way.”The Book Fair’s tribute will include a special exhibit featuring some of the finest expressions of Shakespeare through the centuries. The Huntington Library, which holds a world-class collection of early editions of Shakespeare’s works, will offer an enlightening display on Shakespeare scholarship throughout the 90-plus years of its history. Fine press and artists’ books from the Ella Strong Denison Library at Scripps College will show how Shakespeare has inspired the art of the book. Poster images from the collections of the Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will spotlight memorable film adaptations of Shakespeare from around the world, while photos, costume studies and prompt books with actors’ handwritten notes from the Honnold/Mudd Library at the Claremont Colleges Library will offer insights into stage productions.Rare books on food and cookery in Elizabeth times from the University of California San Diego Library and a related special panel “What Shakespeare Ate: Dining in the Elizabethan Age” will further immerse Book Fair visitors into the world of the Bard. Panelists include Los Angeles Times and Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold; noted food historian Charles Perry; cookbook author and founder of the Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne Anne Willan; and bookseller Ben Kinmont who specializes in antiquarian books on gastronomy. Los Angeles Times columnist Patt Morrison will moderate. Those who want to start their own collections of the plays or sonnets will find many opportunities to acquire items from individual dealers who will be displaying their finest Shakespeare works at the Book Fair.The Book Fair is the perfect introduction for those new to the world of rare books and includes a seminar on the basics of collecting.

Division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice Madhav Jamdar were hearing a criminal writ petition filed by Milind Ashok Patil, Nishant Mane and Akshay Kondekar (deceased) lodged at Kolhapur Central jail. The three petitioners and other three co-accused were held guilty and convicted by the judgment dated April 23, 2018, passed by the Additional Sessions Judge, Kolhapur for the offences punishable under Sections 302, 307, 143, 147, 148, 323, 504, 506 read with 149 and Section 120-B of IPC and sentenced to suffer imprisonment for life. They were also sentenced to suffer imprisonment for six years for having committed offences punishable under Section 307 read with Section 149 of the Indian Penal Code. All six convicts were lodged at Kolhapur prison, preferred an appeal before the High Court against their conviction and sentence and it is still pending. In the meanwhile, one of the co-accused appellant Akshay Kondekar died while in jail. The petition states that as on July 15, a total of 631 prisoners have been detected positive in the State of Maharashtra whereas 4 prisoners have succumbed to death. Petitioners initially sought to be released on emergency parole in view of the pandemic of Covid-19 and the decision of the State High Power Committee dated March 25, 2020 and May 8, 2020 and the amended Maharashtra Prisons (Mumbai Furlough and Parole) Rules, 1959. During the pendency of the petition, in an order dated June 15, Court directed the Jail Authorities to take decision on the applications of the petitioners seeking parole leave and to place before the Court such decisions on June 19, 2020. Accordingly, the Jail Authorities decided the applications seeking emergency parole leave by separate three orders dated June 16 and rejected applications of all three petitioners. According to the petitioners, their applications seeking emergency parole were rejected by separate orders dated June 16 on the ground that, with respect to Ashok and Nishant, they were released once on furlough leave and they returned back to the jail within time, however, the requirement of amended Rule 19(i)(c)(ii) is that the convict has to return within time on last two releases (whether on parole or furlough) and as both of them have returned within time, but released only once and therefore, the said emergency parole application was rejected. As far as Akshay Khondake is concerned, he was never released and/or never availed furlough or parole leave and therefore, his application was rejected. Meanwhile, two other convicts in the case, Pramod Shinde and Mahesh Patil, who is Ashok Patil’s brother, were released on emergency parole as they fulfilled the condition laid out in the newly amended parole rule.. Petitioner’s counsel Advocate Satish Talekar along with Adv Madhavi Ayyappan argued that the respondents are misreading the said amended parole rule and such interpretation shall not only lead to absurdity, but shall frustrate the very object of enacting the said amended parole rule. Referring to the amended parole rule and observed- “It is very clear that the said amended clause No. (C) is a provision made for short period and brought into existence for taking measures for protection of health and welfare of the prisoners to restrict the transmission of Covid-19, which inter alia includes that prisons should ensure maximum possible distancing among the prisoners and for this purpose, it has become necessary to prevent overcrowding of prisons in view of pandemic of Covid-19. Thus, it is clear that the said amended provision is made for a short period and is brought into existence for the main objective of reducing the overcrowding in the jail.” The bench noted that while the object while granting the emergency parole is to see that overcrowding in prison is reduced, at the same time, it is to ensure that the habitual offender or prisoners who are likely to abscond are deprived of emergency parole and therefore, the aforesaid amended rule was brought into effect. Finally, Justice Jamdar noted- “However, if such convicts are never released either on furlough or parole previously or not released on 2 occasions either on furlough or parole and therefore, there was no occasion for them to return back within time on 2 occasions and therefore, not entitled for said benefit of emergency parole, such literal interpretation may lead to absurdity and in that event, there is no occasion to invoke condition imposed under the said amended Parole Rule.” Thus, the order rejecting applications filed by the petitioner convicts for emergency parole passed by Superintendent of Kolhapur Central Prison were quashed and set aside. Moreover, the applications were restored to file and the Superintendent has been directed to decide the same afresh within two weeks.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]  Next Storylast_img read more

Deadly Texas package bombs ‘constructed by the same bombmaker’

first_imgCopyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. ABC News(AUSTIN) — The package bombs in Austin, Texas, that killed two people over 11 days were “constructed by the same bombmaker,” Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said on Good Morning America Tuesday.“There are some specific components that we won’t go into the details to protect the integrity of the investigation, but there are some specific things we have seen that make us believe all three of these packages were constructed by the same bombmaker,” Manley said.Here’s what ABC News knows right now:2 dead, 2 hospitalizedOn Monday, a teen was killed and a woman in her 40s was injured, and another woman was hurt in a separate blast. Another died because of the first blast. Each was harmed by one of the three explosive devices received as a “box-type delivery,” Chief Manley told reporters Monday.March 2The first incident happened 11 days ago. Two others were reported Monday. “Significant damage” was inflicted by at least two of the blasts.That first victim, Anthony Stephan House, died in the hospital.Porch deliveriesThe victims noticed packages left on their front porches, without any suspect ringing the doorbell or otherwise alerting them, Manley said.‘Be vigilant’“We don’t want to have people be overly alarmed,” Manley said, “but it is important that people be vigilant and be aware of things that look suspicious.”Residents are being asked to report all suspicious packages. “If you see something that’s out of place, do not handle it, do not move it, do not touch it. Call us,” he added.Monday’s attackThe first explosion occurred around 6:44 a.m., police said. It was “very similar” to the March 2 incident, Manley said. The device was left in front of a single-family home in the northeast part of Austin.The second attack Monday happened around 11:50 a.m. and injured a 75-year-old Hispanic woman.“The victim in this incident came outside of her residence and found a package out front and picked up that package,” Manley said.The victim’s name has not been released and she last was listed in critical but stable condition.Unknown motive“We don’t know the motive behind these” attacks, Manley said, although two homes targeted had African-American residents and another the elderly Hispanic woman. “We cannot rule [out] that hate crime is at the core of this, but we’re not saying that’s the cause as well$15,000 rewardTexas Gov. Greg Abbott has offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or people responsible for the explosions.“I want to assure all Texans, and especially those in Austin, that local, state and federal law enforcement officials are working diligently to find those responsible for these heinous crimes,” Abbott said in a statement.last_img read more

BREAKING: University announces further information about this year’s exams

first_imgThe exams platform will be available for use from Trinity, while all exams scheduled to take place this term will happen in Weblearn. The new platform, which has been in use by the Medical Sciences Division since 2018, will feature 3 specific modes for typed, handwritten, and mixed exams. Students completing handwritten or mixed mode exams will be given 30 minutes of technical time to scan and upload their exam material.  The University has announced the launch of its new exams platform in collaboration with Inspera Assessment, a European e-assessment provider, which will be available to demo from late February. More detailed information about this term’s academic provision has also been released, including the announcement that those taking exams this term will be expected to take the same number of papers and assessments as usual, unless this was previously confirmed to change (as is the case with Classics Moderations). Dissertations and project work will be adapted for the context so that they maintain “the same intellectual rigour,” and the university has acknowledged that some projects may have to be designed, or redesigned, in order to account for the inaccessibility of some resources. Placements and year abroad projects will continue to go ahead with increased consideration of risk, although the university has noted that students “will not be required to take up a year abroad or other placement against their wishes.” The new academic provisions information summarises some of the details previously released by the university, including encouraging students to keep a record of disruption faced if they wish to apply for Mitigating Circumstances. The provisions also confirm that most students can expect entirely online teaching for the start of Hilary term, with the exception of some research students. All exams scheduled to take place in Hilary will be online, with the exception of one medical exam.  Students normally entitled to 25% extra time for exams will be given an additional hour to complete their exams in Inspera, and any students entitled to more than 25% extra time will by default be given an exam duration of 8 hours. Courses that already have longer online exams, such as some English exams, will not generally be giving additional time. Further details for international students will be released later in February, but the university has announced that students in different time zones should be able to complete their exams in daytime hours.last_img read more
