Press release: Professional court access scheme to be adopted nationally

first_imgThe scheme has been trialled at 10 courts since September 2018. These are: Manchester Minshull Street York Crown Court Reading Crown Court Guildford Crown Court Cardiff Crown Court Notes to editorsThe five courts joining the scheme from 22 May 2019 are: Everyone who works in courts and tribunals is responsible for ensuring our buildings are safe and secure places. HMCTS security processes at our courts and tribunals are a vital part of this. Security officers identify and confiscate numerous dangerous items every year. They carry out an important, and often difficult, role and should be treated with the respect and courtesy that all court users should expect in return. Brighton Magistrates’ Court Chester Crown Court Maidstone Combined Court Nottingham Crown Court Portsmouth Combined Court Southwark Crown Court St Albans Crown Court Swansea Crown Court Tameside Magistrates’ Court Wood Green Crown Court Chair of the Bar Council, Richard Atkins QC, said: The ‘professional-user access scheme’ has already been trialled at 10 courts and will now be rolled out by HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) to an additional five courts in May, continuing nationwide with completion expected in 2020.Using a secure ID app, those registered can enter courts and tribunals without the need for a full security search each time. The decision to extend the scheme further follows positive feedback from professionals who have already used it, with 86% of those surveyed saying it improved entry to the court.While tightened security procedures introduced last year will continue, the entry scheme intends to ease queues to get into court and tribunal buildings thereby freeing up security staff time to focus on other court users. Random searches will be carried out to make sure the scheme is working as intended.Justice Minister, Lucy Frazer, said:center_img I am delighted that the ID card access scheme that the Bar Council has been working on with HMCTS for so long now is to be rolled out nationally. A lot of hard work and investment has gone into developing this scheme, It will be of immense benefit to members of the Bar who will hopefully now gain quicker access to the courts and tribunals in which they work and perform a vital public duty. I hope that the roll-out will be completed as quickly as possible. I am grateful for the cooperation of HMCTS in this project. The programme is expected to be completed by mid-2020.Some 86% out of 211 legal professionals surveyed said the overall court entrance procedures were improved or much improved because of the scheme.The pilot will be rolled out to all courts and tribunals other than those hearing terrorist or high security cases. pilot scheme attracted widespread legal support professionals will now gain quicker and easier entry to courts and tribunals nationwide scheme will be rolled out to the vast majority of courts by 2020 We have worked closely with the legal sector to ensure this scheme is a success without compromising the security of our courts and tribunals. Expanding it across the estate will mean professionals can get on more quickly with their work. Registration for the national scheme has begun with the Bar Council and will continue with a phased rollout programme. HMCTS is currently working with other legal associations who also wish to participate to open the scheme for their members in due course.Simultaneously, a wider effort is being made to make sure there is clear and consistent information about search procedures when entering courts and tribunals. Under the banner of ‘Expect, Inspect, Respect’, HMCTS is informing all court users about the use of mandatory bag searches and archway detectors, which are necessary to keep people in courts safe.Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales, Lady Justice Macur, said:last_img read more

Murphy scores all of Syracuse’s points, can’t carry Orange past No. 21 Clemson in 16-6 loss

first_imgCLEMSON, S.C. — Cole Murphy missed his shortest kick of the night.His field-goal attempt from 42 yards out went wide right with eight and a half minutes left in the game, guaranteeing that Syracuse wouldn’t make any bids for an upset on Clemson’s home turf.But SU head coach Scott Shafer pulled his freshman walk-on aside.“I asked him if he ever had that many people yelling and screaming and waving their arms when he was kicking a field goal,” Shafer said. “He goes, ‘No, but it doesn’t matter.’“I said, ‘Well, you know what? I thought you did a hell of a job tonight.’”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMurphy tallied all six of the Orange’s (3-5, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) points in its 16-6 loss to the No. 21 Tigers (6-2, 5-1) at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night. When Syracuse’s offense stumbled, Murphy withstood heckling from Death Valley while saving SU’s drives from ending fruitlessly.He connected from 43 yards and 50 yards out — the Orange’s longest field goal since 2008 — to give Syracuse a halftime lead and keep the Orange within striking distance until Clemson decisively put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter with the night’s sole touchdown.Since taking over the full-time kicking duties in late September, Murphy’s brought stability to SU’s field-goal unit, having now made 11-of-13 on the year.“He’s done a great job,” offensive coordinator Tim Lester said. “It makes calling third down a lot easier because you’re less aggressive. You’re less going to put your quarterback in a chance to turn the ball over … We trust him.”Knotted in a scoreless stalemate in the first quarter, Syracuse rolled the dice on a fourth-and-1 and converted with a handoff to running back Ervin Philips past CU’s 30. But two incomplete passes and a short Prince-Tyson Gulley run brought fourth down.Murphy made it 3-0.With 1:12 left, SU took over at the Tigers’ 25-yard line after SU linebacker Dyshawn Davis ripped the ball from the grasp of CU quarterback Cole Stoudt.An incomplete wide receiver reverse pass, 3-yard Gulley carry and strip sack of quarterback AJ Long backed the Orange up to fourth-and-16 at Clemson’s 31. Syracuse called timeout with three seconds left.A hyped-up Death Valley tried to distract the freshman, but Murphy lined up the attempt from half a field away and nailed it — with some extra distance to spare.Murphy didn’t receive another chance until his fourth-quarter try fell short — his first miss since a 37-yard attempt on Sept. 27 — but Shafer made sure his only source of points knew his performance didn’t go unappreciated.“‘Just keep your chin up,’” Shafer said he told Murphy, “‘and come on back and make the next one.’” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 27, 2014 at 12:09 am Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbblast_img read more

Nigeria eyes graft charges against football officials

first_imgThe main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Buhari of conducting a political witch-hunt because most of those arrested and charged have been party members.Obono-Obla, who is also the president’s special assistant on prosecutions, has denied coming under any direct or indirect political pressure in the latest case.The federation is a so-called “parastatal” in that it receives direct government funding in addition to external commercial sponsorship and football development grants.He also rejected the possibility that FIFA could again intervene and ban Nigeria, as taking football matters to domestic courts was against its statutes.The case was a “criminal matter”, he added.In October, Nigeria’s main anti-corruption body, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, charged three NFF officials with fraud.They were accused of diverting $9.5 million in FIFA grants for personal use in 2015.The charges came a month after the NFF banned former national team coach Salisu Yusuf for 12 months and fined him $5,000 for receiving cash from undercover journalists posing as agents.The sting was part of a wider undercover probe into graft in West African football that prompted the resignation of Ghana Football Association chief Kwesi Nyantakyi for allegedly soliciting bribes and kickbacks.Share on: WhatsApp Abuja, Nigeria | AFP | The head of a Nigerian presidential anti-corruption body has said charges will be brought against football officials for allegedly misappropriating public funds.Okoi Obono-Obla disclosed that the body was in the process of finalising charges and that a “prima facie case” had been established.“We will now file charges against them,” said Obono-Obla, who is chairman of Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Presidential Investigation Panel for Recovery of Public Property.“They will be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction,” he told Kiss FM Abuja radio in an interview on Friday, without identifying the individuals by name.Obono-Obla has previously interviewed the head of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, and his two deputies, Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko.NFF general secretary Mohammed Sanusi and executive committee member Ahmed Yusuf have also been questioned.Pinnick was re-elected for a second term as head of the federation in September last year, despite a long-running battle over the legitimacy of his position.The dispute has led to a string of court cases and political interventions, prompting world governing body FIFA to threaten to ban the African powerhouses from international competition.President Buhari launched a high-profile campaign in 2015 to prosecute corrupt officials who had stolen what he said were “mind-boggling” sums of public money.last_img read more

Partridge scores a senior title double

first_img19 Jun 2015 Partridge scores a senior title double England’s Richard Partridge completed a title double when he added the Spire Murrayfield Scottish Senior Open Championship to his earlier Irish triumph.Patridge’s success, with a four-over par total after a blustery week at Deeside, led a fantastic day for England with nine English players in the top 10.He finished two shots clear of overnight leader, Ian Attoe from Worplesdon, recent winner of the English Senior Championship, and Woodhall Spa’s Richard Latham, the 2013 English and Scottish champion.Partridge (image © Kevin Kirk) has represented England seniors and was the 2014 Kent senior champion. He opened in this championship with steady rounds of 73 and 71, giving him the platform to mount a last-day surge to the front.He posted a closing par 70, with a mix of birdies at the third and ninth, bogeys at the second and 14th and equal halves of 35, over the par-70 parkland lay-out.“This win is on a par with my Irish victory and is very special,” said Partridge, 57, who plays out of the Wildernesse club in Kent. “The key to my success was not three putting all week and I did the same in Ireland.”Partridge won the Irish senior title at Roscommon at the end of May with a one-over total for the 54-hole event, after holding off a final round charge from Irishman Tom Cleary.last_img read more

Runaway ‘Spoons’ win for Yorkshire pair

first_img Yorkshire golfers Jane Butler and Carole Morris scored a runaway win in the national final of the Australian Spoons at Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire.The pair from Doncaster Golf Club defied torrential rain to score 36 points in the foursomes competition, which was run as part of England Golf Week – and they won the trophy by seven points.“It’s a dream come true,” said Jane, who plays off 23 handicap. Carole, a 28-handicapper, added: “We are over the moon, really, really excited that we have won. We just kept saying ‘We can, we will’ and now ‘we have!’”Jane has proved herself something of a foursomes specialist over the last two days. Yesterday, with a different partner, she took second place in the Yorkshire ladies’ county foursomes – and then travelled straight to Frilford for the Australian Spoons.She and Carole had come through club and north regional qualifying rounds to reach the final and take on pairs from England Golf’s five other women’s regions.The runners-up were Lisa Hawkins and Sophie Tester from Sedlescombe Golf Club, Sussex, taking second place on countback from Naomi Pilmer and Jane Clark (The Links, Newmarket) and Pam Greenfield and Desley Smith (Branston, Staffordshire). The other finalists were Sonia Restall and Sandra Ruxton (Harewood Downs, Buckinghamshire) and Sue Warren and Helen Walker (Cumberwell Park, Wiltshire).England Golf Week is a five-day festival of handicap golf, featuring the national finals of a host of individual and team championships for club golfers.

USDA scraps organic livestock and poultry rule

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) withdrew the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) final rule, a set of standards that organic producers would have had to meet to qualify for the voluntary organic label for livestock and poultry.Many think the rule went well beyond the original intent of the Organic Production Act by allowing for animal welfare standards and metrics to become part of the organic label.The rule was originally to be finalized on Nov. 14, 2017, but Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue last fall announced a 180-day extension, making May 14, 2018, the new implementation date. Perdue ultimately heeded the request of organic livestock and poultry farmers and the organizations that represent them, including Farm Bureau, to abandon the rule altogether.“Livestock health and well-being is a priority for all farmers and ranchers. We rely on trained professionals, including animal scientists, nutritionists and veterinarians, to ensure the health and safety of our food. The rule did not promote food safety or animal welfare,” said Zippy Duvall, American Farm Bureau Federation president. “Had the rule gone into effect, forcing organic farmers and ranchers to arbitrarily change their production practices, many would have been driven out of the organic sector or out of business entirely, reducing the supply of organic food choices for America’s consumers.”These actions, though, will exacerbate consumer confusion about the meaning of the organic label, and it will ultimately negatively impact family organic producers who adhere to strict, voluntary organic standards, according to National Farmers Union (NFU).“The voluntary practices that farmers need to meet to qualify for a USDA ‘organic’ label have always been governed by those that created the organic movement and who adhere to the strict standards that are agreed upon by the National Organic Standards Board. This body directed the National Organic Program to issue the OLPP standards in order to have some consistency in what is considered to be an organic practice,” said Roger Johnson, NFU president.“USDA’s action to withdraw the OLPP rule is a mistake that will cost the family producers who already adhere to strict standards in order to meet ‘organic’ standards. It puts them on an uneven playing field with the types of operations who skirt the rules, yet also benefit from the same USDA organic label.”last_img read more

Do Ductless Minisplits Work With Every Floor Plan?

first_imgClay Whitenack, planning a new home in central Kentucky, had assumed that a ground-source heat pump would be a “no-brainer” for heating and cooling. Then he began reading about minisplit air-source heat pumps, and suddenly the situation didn’t seem so simple.He’s intrigued with the possibilities for minisplits, but he’s not certain he’ll have a floor plan that would be compatible with this type of system, he writes in Q&A post at Green Building Advisor.“My question is this: Aside from getting your house as well insulated and tight as possible, do you need a certain floor plan or construction feature to make minisplits work?” he asks. “Does the foor plan need to be open without many walls and closed rooms? Will this only work with smaller square footages? In other words, can I take a traditional, 2-story, ‘normal’ house plan (3,000 to 4,000 square feet), wrap it up with R-30 walls and R-60 attic, and get good results with some minisplit units, or do I need to build a house with a specific floor plan?”Further, Whitenack wonders whether he needs to build in a contingency plan in the event a minisplit system would leave some rooms too hot and humid in the summer or too cold in the winter. “I would be a major pain at that point to try and go back and install ductwork,” he says. First things first: Good planningIt will be impossible to design an efficient heating and cooling system without performing room-by-room heating and cooling load calculations, GBA senior editor Martin Holladay tells him, and those calculations won’t be possible unless you have a floor plan.“Any heating and cooling system needs to be designed,” Holladay writes. “That principle applies to a conventional forced-air system hooked up to a furnace and a split-system air conditioner, and it also applies to a minisplit system.“Start by performing a room-by-room heating and cooling load calculation,” he adds. “Once you know your loads, you can start designing your system, using a combination of ducted minisplits and ductless minisplits.”In addition to recommending a number of articles at GBA (these are listed in “Related Articles” at left), Holladay suggests that Whitenack hire an architect or designer who’s familiar with green building principles so that he gets a compact house with as few bump-outs and ells as possible. RELATED ARTICLES Weighing ducted minisplit designsMinisplits don’t have to be ductless, Nate G points out.“If you’re worried about the floor plan or door status interfering with the units’ ability to heat or cool the house, there’s always a ducted minisplit heat pump, which is still going to be more efficient than a conventional ducted heat pump,” Nate G says. “And you’ll likely only need one, which may save you money compared to a multi-split system with several indoor heads.”Jerry Liebler, who also lives in Kentucky, suggests that minisplits will indeed need help to heat and cool rooms where doors are typically closed. Conventional ducted heat pump systems can easily keep up with closed rooms, he says, but they have “abysmal energy efficiency” when temperatures fall below 20°F.His solution would be to combine a conventional air handler with a minisplit designed for low-temperature operation.“I’ll dedicate a closet to the minisplit and air handler,” Liebler says, “Return air will flow through the ceilings to the top of the closet, the air handler output will go to ducts below the floor. The air handler will be ‘slaved’ to the minisplit with its power controlled by sensing the current drawn by the minisplit. The minisplit will have a remote thermostat located in a hallway.” On the question of running brick veneer below grade, Steve suggests taking a look at the GBA detail shown at left. (GBA Prime subscribers can download the image from this web page: Brick veneer detail.)Steve says, “This details shows a great overlap between the continuous exterior rigid insulation and the top of the foundation wall. The exterior insulation runs down to the brick ledge step in the foundation and the basement can be insulated on the interior. You could carefully run the finished grade right to the first course of the brick veneer if you want a Federal appearance, or you could move the flashing and weeps up a course or two and cover the first course with loose finished grade material.”Steve does a lot of high-performance and Passivhaus projects and routinely uses both ducted and ductless minisplits.Here are his comments on that: “Will a minisplit(s) work? The short answer is yes! But the long answer is where the rubber meets the road. As with any system, success depends on a well designed relationship of all the parts.“In this case — a new home designed to look historic — issues of house orientation, glazing, insulation levels, airtightness, ventilation, and heating/cooling distribution are all inextricably linked to each other. I always use the abacus analogy: All of these issues are not to the right, nor are they to the left, they are all somewhere in the middle — and that somewhere depends on placement of the other parts of the system.“For example, a lot of glazing in a dining room facing due south would require a distribution different than that of a master bedroom of the same size with one third of the glazing on the north side of the building. Having a project team already experienced in these relationships, or willing to master them, is the key.“Once these relationships are understood, and HVAC loads are determined, the next set of relationships are imperative. These relationships are the number of units, size of units, location of units, and whether ducted or single-source. Depending on the overall performance of the house, these decisions will either be increasingly difficult or increasingly easy to support.“For example, a code-built house yields both the problem of “load” and of “distribution.” As I move the home’s overall performance toward Passivhaus performance, the problem of load diminishes. While that still leaves the issue of distribution, this problem will become much easier due to the lower load.“Because I’m not a mechanical engineer, I make the concept of energy (or heating and cooling) easy on myself. In a house (relative to energy) I need to do two simple things: convert/supply energy as inexpensively and efficiently as possible; and hold on to that energy as long as I can.“In this framework, duration is directly linked to load. If I build a good house and can hold onto the conditions a long time, then I don’t need much heat or cooling.”Steve cautions that minisplit heat pumps deliver heat in a different way than the higher pressure and higher air volumes of conventional forced-air centralized systems. “Duct runs can’t be long and can’t provide much resistance, and you need dedicated return ducts,” he says “And a good general rule of thumb on high-performance space conditioning and ventilation: Don’t try and use your ventilation system for distribution; ventilation systems simply don’t move enough air for adequate distribution and mixing.” One zone probably won’t be enoughA two-story house will probably need at least two heating and cooling zones, one upstairs and one down, Dana Dorsett says.In Climate Zone 4A, where Whitenack’s house will be built, a correctly sized minisplit system will “nearly meet or sometimes beat” the efficiencies of a typical ground-source heat pump (GSHP), he adds. Cold-weather minisplits will have a Coefficient of Performance of no better than 2 at subzero temperatures, but will see COPs of 3 as temperature rise above 15°F, and will hit 4 or more when outdoor temperatures hit 40°F.“If you spend the difference in upfront cost between a GSHP and a couple of minisplits on rooftop solar, it’s often a better investment,” Dorsett says. “GSHP costs vary all over the place, but so does the quality of GSHP system designs. A minisplit is a pre-engineered ‘system in a can,’ with far fewer ways to go wrong (though truly creative installers are able to invent new ways to screw it up every day!).”Minisplits also are more realistically sized for the type of house Whitenack has in mind. Most HVAC equipment is “ridiculously oversized” for the loads they’ll encounter, Dorsett says, while a typical 1.5-ton cold-climate minisplit can deliver about 20,000 Btu per hour at 15°F, “which covers the heating load of most ‘pretty good’ houses at that temperature,” he says.“A tight 3,000 to 4,000 square foot code-minimum house might have a heat load north of 35,000 BTU/hour, but if you pick a shape that’s easy to air-seal that doesn’t have a lot of thermally bridging corners and bump-outs, slapping 2 to 4 inches of foam on the exterior of that house, an energy heel roof truss that allows 18 inches of fluff in the attic, and using U-0.25 or lower windows, gets you down to the 20,000 range, at which point a couple of 3/4 tonners (one per floor) will have plenty of capacity at your likely outside design temperature,” Dorsett advises.center_img Whitenack’s questions are the topic for this Q&A Spotlight. Our expert’s opinionPeter Yost, GBA’s technical director, had this to say:It seems as though there are two main issues in this one:Running brick veneer below-grade to give a more realistic Federal brick building appearance without creating a thermal bridge at the transition from the below-grade to above-grade wall assemblies.Using minisplit heat pump(s) in spaces or homes with a less-than-open floor plan.First, I’d recommend reading this GBA article. You don’t need to read all of it. Scroll down to the boldface subhead that begins, “A systems integration example,” and start there.As luck would have it, GreenBuildingAdvisor architect Steve Baczek, is a great resource for both of these issues. Rules of Thumb for Ductless MinisplitsHow To Buy a Ductless MinisplitHow to Perform a Heat-Loss CalculationGreen Building for BeginnersTen Ways to Improve a New HomePastiche ArchitectureHow to Insulate a Basement WallGreen Basics: Green Heating OptionsGreen Basics: Heat Distribution Foundation insulation will be keyWhitenack likes the Federal and Georgian architecture of historic homes in Kentucky, and he’d like to replicate this aesthetic in his new house. That means a simple square or rectangular footprint, and uncomplicated roof geometry. It also means thick masonry walls.“However, even though we want the house to look like it has been there for 200+ years, we realize that we no longer live in the 1800s, and building a house that is viable in the present as well as the future is something equally, if not more, important,” Whitenack says. “We want a modern house on the inside with a historic house veneer. If we can make this work, we will get the best of both worlds. If it won’t work, however, I want to know early in the design stages so we can figure out what has to be compromised.”It’s the masonry exterior that could bedevil his hopes for energy efficiency.“With brick veneers there is a huge thermal bridge to contend with at the top of the foundation, with no really great solution,” Dorsett writes, “Think carefully how you are going to deal with that, since it will undercut the performance of a high-R house. One approach is to build a 12-in. step-down on the exterior side of the foundation with the brick and foam extending a foot below the foundation sill, or installing a foot of aerated autoclaved concrete (AAC) insulating block between the top of the concrete and the foundation sill, with interior-side rigid insulation going all the way up to the top of the AAC.“If you do nothing and just plant it all on top of the foundation, you’ll have an R-1 to R-2 stripe of concrete and brick at the bottom of your R-30 wall, and above your R-15 to R-20 foundation,” he adds. “With thick foam and brick veneers there is also the issue of finding appropriate brick-ties that can handle the length, which can be a real cost adder. Deeper commercial ties are probably what you’d need to manage 4 inches of foam.”In that instance, Nate G adds, Foamglas insulation might be better than ACC. It’s marketed as a thermal break for brick ledges and has twice the R-value as a typical ACC block. If the building inspector isn’t sure about the load-bearing capabilities of Foamglas, insulating fire bricks probably would work.Alternately, says Holladay, insulating the basement walls on the inside might be simpler.But insulating the floor between the basement and the rest of the house probably isn’t the best option, even when the house won’t have any heating and cooling ducts in the basement, Holladay says.“First of all, ducts are not the only issue,” he writes. “Most basements also including plumbing, including hot water pipes — and it’s good to have plumbing inside of the conditioned space of your building. (In Vermont, if you insulate the basement ceiling but not the basement walls, it’s pretty easy for your pipes to freeze. That’s probably not true in Kentucky — but it’s still a good idea to keep your pipes indoors.)“Second, many basements have a water heater. Water heaters belong indoors, not outdoors.“Third, it’s difficult to do a good job insulating a basement ceiling, because all of the penetrations make the insulation work awkward. It’s usually easier to insulate the basement walls.“Fourth, most homeowners (these days) occasionally visit their basement or use it for storage — and they don’t really want the basement to be cold in the winter.”last_img read more
