Tourist safety net extended

first_img whatsapp Share KCS-content Thursday 3 February 2011 7:37 pm Most holidaymakers are set to be protected from losses when a travel company goes bust, under plans announced by the government yesterday. Package holidays are already covered by the Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Atol) scheme, ensuring refunds for customers whose tour operator folds. The government said that, by the end of the year, flights and accommodation in the same booking will also be covered. Six million more holidays could be protected, but prices may rise as a result.

Cross country grabs third and fourth at the Texas Invitational

first_imgMaya Bulgerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/maya-bulger/ Track and Field: Senior breaks another school record Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award ReddIt Senior Henry Butz gets to the finish line first for the men’s squad. Maya Bulgerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/maya-bulger/ printThe women’s team placed third and the men’s team fourth at the Texas Invitational on Thursday evening. The women competed in their second 4000-meter race and the men competed in their first 6000-meter race of the season.Three women finished in the top ten. Senior Nicole Hicks placed fifth with a time of 14:28.17 and freshman Evelyn Mandel placed sixth with a time of 14:29.59.“I think they raced strong,” head coach Jennifer Fazioli said. “I think Evelyn needs to have a little more confidence in herself. Nicole has progressed every year and keeps getting better. I’m very happy with where the two of them are now.”Sophomore Lindsay Tomaini placed tenth with a time of 14:44.28.“I thought Lindsay raced well,” Fazioli said. “When she gets tired, we need to work on her knee fit and keeping her heels off the ground. If she can do that, she’ll be right there with Nicole and Evelyn.”Senior Dominique Tilly (15:06.62), sophomore Kirsten Johnston (15:15.35) and junior Elizabeth Baker (15:20.74) finished in the top 25.The women had an average time of 14:48.81 in the 4000-meter race.“I think we had some good stuff,” Fazioli said. “I’m really happy with where Dom (Dominique Tilly) is. KJ (Kirsten Johnston) is gaining confidence as she moves up and finished extremely strong. I’m very happy with Elizabeth as well.”For the men, senior Henry Butz crossed the line first with a time of 20:36.32. Juniors Dylan Brokmeyer and Patrick LaCour grabbed the next two places with times of 20:38.13 and 20:42.28.“If I can get DB (Dylan Brokmeyer) and Henry working together the entire way, I think feeding off energy from having a teammate with them can help them continue to make strides,” Fazioli said. “I think if we can find a mix between the two, where Henry is more aggressive and DB (Dylan Brokmeyer) is more conservative, they will be good.”The men had an average time of 21:01.26 in the 6000-meter race.Up NextThe Horned Frogs will travel to College Station to compete at the Texas A&M Invitational Saturday, Sept. 23. + posts Twitter Get to know the TCU admission counselors Previous articleTCU revamps Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer StadiumNext articleAronofsky’s mother! deceives the audience Maya Bulger RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Facebook Two teams added to ‘Meet The Frogs’ Early action option removed from admission process Linkedin Maya Bulgerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/maya-bulger/ Facebook Maya Bulger Maya Bulgerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/maya-bulger/ ReddIt Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Maya Bulger is a junior at Texas Christian University from Detroit, Michigan.

The San Antonio native finished the match with a team-high 19 kills.“She’s in tournament mode,” Kramer said.  “She’s used to being the go-to and putting the team on her shoulders and saying let’s do this.”  Buckingham said focusing on the team is part of her motivation.“Our team was so focused when we walked in the gym because we’re playing for our seniors since this is some of their last time playing volleyball,” Buckingham said. “We play every point for them right now, we want to see another day of volleyball.”TCU outside hitter Abigail Buckingham hits the ball past the Wyoming front line in the first round of the NIVC. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comThe first set was a back-and-forth affair between TCU and Wyoming, with the Cowgirls holding the largest lead in the frame of just four points, 10-6. As the set was winding, Cowgirl middle blocker Jackie McBride helped power Wyoming to a 20-17 lead, but the Horned Frogs wouldn’t go away. They took a 21-20 lead after four straight attacks from outside hitter Lexi MacLean.   After both teams exchanged counterpunches, TCU finished off the frame with back-to-back kills from outside hitters MacLean and Ashleigh Martin.TCU’s sole All-Big 12 selection, middle blocker Anna Walsh, and Buckingham led the Horned Frogs in kills to open the match with five a piece. MacLean was right behind them with three. TCU was able to emerge victorious in the first set with just one ace by setter Lamprini Konstantinidou and three service errors.The second set was more of the same until Wyoming reached a 17-14 advantage. TCU responded to the deficit by ripping off eight straight points to claim a 22-17 lead. Buckingham and Walsh combined to put down five kills during the run with three coming from Buckingham and two from Walsh.“I think our defense and serve-receive really picked up in the second set, and the coaches did a really good job fixing the holes we had in the first set,” Buckingham said.The Cowgirls mounted a comeback to come as close three, 24-21, but the Horned Frogs finished off the second set on a slam from Buckingham to win 25-21.After the break, Wyoming raced out to a sizable eight-point advantage, 11-3, prompting TCU Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer to call a timeout. The Horned Frogs began the period with three consecutive errors by Martin, MacLean, and Walsh. However, TCU went on a run of its own, winning seven points in a row and then taking a few more after a kill from Cowgirl outside hitter Emily Lewis to trim the Wyoming advantage to two, 14-12.As the third set wound down, both teams were neck-and-neck until the very end. The set was tied at 23, and Wyoming reached set point first on a kill from McBride, but Buckingham came to the rescue for TCU, sending the set to a win-by-two scenario. The Horned Frogs won the next two points with Buckingham finishing the match with a block on Wyoming’s Austin.Kramer liked the fight her group showed to close out the match.“I think it shows how much our team has grown,” Kramer said. “After the beginning of the season, I think we struggled with bouncing back, so it was good to see we could handle that better again. We just believed we’re in that mode, more of a rhythm with the lineup.”With the victory, the Horned Frogs move on to the Round of 16 in the NIVC, taking advantage of the tournaments return from a 22-year hiatus in 1995.“We have this opportunity in front of us, so I think we’re going to make the most out of it,” Buckingham said. The Horned Frogs will face the winner of North Texas and Oral Roberts Friday at the University of North Texas.

While dealing with the said issue, the judgment in review, this Hon’ble Court has made certain observations and given some findings in relation to the said right to protest and as per the present petitioner/applicant, the observations so made, take away the fundamental right to protest and upset the very concept of dissent which is one of foundations on which our democracy stands.” The petition reads. In the Amit Sahani judgment, the bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Aniruddha Bose and Krishna Murari observed that: “We have, thus, no hesitation in concluding that such kind of occupation of public ways, whether at the site in question or anywhere else for protests is not acceptable and the administration ought to take action to keep the areas clear of encroachments or obstructions.” According to the petitioner, there is a contrasting view on the legality and extent of right to protest at public places during the ongoing farmers protest in pursuant to the observation made by a CJI led bench vide order dated 17.12.2020. In the said order, the Supreme Court observed that: “We are of the view at this stage that the farmers’ protest should be allowed to continue without impediment and without any breach of peace either by the protesters or the police”. The petition states that the Constitutional guarantee of fundamental rights available for the benefit of all the citizens is same and cannot be segregated. Therefore, it is the prayer of the petitioner to club the aforesaid review petition along with the farm laws petitions so as to enable the petitioner a chance of oral hearing for making submissions.”Take up the accompanying Review Petition (C) Diary No. 24552 of 2020 along with other Applications with W.P. (C) No. 1118 of 2020 (Rakesh Vaishnav & Ors. vs. Union of India & Ors.) and other connected petitions.” The Prayer reads.Next Storylast_img read more
