Wisconsin Men’s Hockey Team has gone through a rough patch as of late.After a disappointing series against Penn State University and Michigan State University, the Badgers were determined to obtain a decisive win against No. 1 Notre Dame at the United Center Sunday. Notre Dame had come away victorious in the three previous meetings between the two Big Ten opponents this season.In the first period, UW Defenseman Wyatt Kalynuk opened the game with his second goal of the season. From then on, the game was all Wisconsin.Men’s hockey: Wisconsin dominates during East Coast weekendThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team found success out East after winning against both No.13 Boston College and Merrimack. Read…Trent Frederic scored a short-handed goal, followed by a Seamus Malone power-play one-timer goal to extend Wisconsin’s lead to 3-0 at the end of the second period.Finally, Linus Weissbach and Sean Dhooghe contributed two goals late in the third period to cap off a sweet 5-0 win against Notre Dame.Goaltender Jack Berry was solid at net stopping forty shots (a career high).According to head coach Tony Granato, Berry played a key role in the win.“Goalie was great, it starts in the net. I thought right out of the gate, this was solid for us, gave us a lot of confidence. We were able to solve their goalie a bit tonight, which has been a challenge all year for us,” Granato said.Granato looked back at the season series against Notre Dame and noted this win did not differ all that much from the last three games against the Fighting Irish. But it came down to a few key plays the Badgers were able to capitalize on.With only eight games left in the season, the Badgers need to step up their game to have any hope for a berth in the NCAA tournament. Though Wisconsin decisively beat top ranked Notre Dame the Badgers placed 18th in the rankings as of Jan. 23.Wisconsin will try to keep their playoff hopes alive when they play against No. 14 Penn State this Friday at 8 p.m. at the Kohl Center.
7 Apr 2015 History made as SGU shareholders vote yes to amalgamation with SLGA A single unified national governing body for amateur golf in Scotland is to be created after the shareholders of Scottish Golf Union Limited (SGU), its 16 Area Golf Associations, today unanimously voted though the Proposal to amalgamate with the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association (SLGA). Following an historic 16-0 verdict delivered by the Area Golf Associations at an SGU Extraordinary General Meeting at the Stirling Court Hotel, the SGU and SLGA will amalgamate into a new company, to be called Scottish Golf Limited. The new company will come into existence on 1 October 2015. In February, the Membership of the SLGA backed the Proposal to amalgamate with the SGU by a unanimous margin of 204 – 0 at their Annual General Meeting, before SGU affiliated clubs and eligible societies overwhelmingly backed the Proposal after voting 97% in favour in an independent poll. Scotland’s leading male and female golfers, Stephen Gallacher and Catriona Matthew, also supported the plans to amalgamate the two governing bodies, with other partners and sponsors strongly in favour. Speaking at the Stirling Court Hotel at the University of Stirling campus, SGU Chairman Tom Craig (photo courtesy of SGU) expressed his delight at the outcome of the EGM. Craig said: “This is an historic day for Scottish amateur golf. I thank the SGU’s Area Golf Associations for their support in unanimously backing the Proposal and our affiliated clubs for showing confidence in the Proposal. I’d also like to thank Sheriff Alastair Thornton and all the other members of the Amalgamation Joint Working Group for their hard work. “We have enjoyed a close working relationship with the SLGA for many years and now look forward to working together as one organisation. The reality is that the SGU and SLGA are already working more closely than ever before so the transition to a single unified governing body should be fairly seamless. “We can look to the future with excitement and optimism at the potential benefits amalgamation will bring, including providing greater leadership to our clubs and players, projecting golf as a modern, inclusive sport with a positive image to attract more players and attracting more resources into the sport from commercial sponsorship and government. “It has been a long journey to reach this stage, but it was important that everyone had the chance to contribute to the amalgamation debate, so we could come forward with a good structure for the future of golf in Scotland. “Our game faces many challenges. There’s a lot to do, but we now have the opportunity to build a positive future for golf and golf clubs in Scotland.” Beth Paterson, SLGA Chairman, added: “We are delighted that both organisations have given their overwhelming support for amalgamation. This is a positive day for golf and a vital step forward for the game. Scottish Golf will now be able to focus on the main issues facing the game and take it positively into a new era.” For more information please contact: Ed Hodge, PR & Media Executive Office Line: 01334 466477 Mobile No: 07850 772166

BERLIN — German factory orders dropped in November, dragged down by a fall in demand from other eurozone countries.The Economy Ministry said Monday that overall orders were 1 per cent lower than in the previous month following a slight 0.2 per cent gain in October.The figure includes an 11.6-per cent drop in orders from elsewhere in the 19-nation eurozone, which more than cancelled out a 7.4 per cent gain a month earlier. Orders from inside Germany were up 2.4 per cent, and those from outside the eurozone rose 2.3 per cent.Factory orders are an important indicator for the German economy, Europe’s biggest, which shrank in the third quarter — though that drop was blamed to a large extent on one-time factors stemming from new car emissions standards.The Associated Press
Los Angeles: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have said that it was a “community decision” to bring the curtains down on their hit show ‘Supernatural’. The series, which will culminate with its 15th season, features the two actors as the Winchester brothers who hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings. Speaking at the “Supernatural” convention in Las Vegas, Padalecki said, “This was a community decision”. He further said that there was never any pressure from The CW network and the studio to wrap up show, reported Entertainment Weekly. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: PriyankaAckles added that the show’s end was debated for months by both the cast and the crew. “Nobody wanted to see this show fizzle out. I think that it was everyone wanting to do the biggest service to the show that we could by going out strong. It just seemed like the writing was kind of on the wall as to when that was happening. “Everybody kind of felt that it was coming soon, and so it was just taking that leap of faith of going like, ‘Well guys, let’s get out the paint and paint that finish line because what we’ve accomplished is unlike any other’,” he said. The final season will consist of 20 episodes. The show is executive produced by Robert Singer, Andrew Dabb, Phil Sgriccia, Jeremy Carver, Eugenie Ross-Leming, and Brad Buckner. It is produced by Warner Bros Television, in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision.
New Delhi: Justice N V Ramana, part of three-member in-house inquiry panel set up to examine the allegations of sexual harassment against Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, recused himself from it on Thursday. An apex court source said that Justice Ramana has opted himself out of the inquiry panel headed by Justice S A Bobde. The development comes a day after the former apex court woman employee, who levelled the allegations against the CJI, wrote a letter to the panel expressing reservation over the inclusion of Justice Ramana. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details She had expressed objection to the presence of Justice Ramana in the panel on the ground that he is a close friend of the CJI and a regular visitor to his house. The woman was supposed to appear before the panel on Friday. In a letter to Justice Bobde, she also raised question over the presence of only one woman apex court judge — Indira Banerjee — in the panel to examine her allegations against the CJI which is not in accordance with the Vishaka Guidelines. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday She said that as per the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in the Vishaka judgement, for holding inquiry into the allegations of sexual harassment at work place, the committee must have a majority of women. According to an official, the woman wrote, “I would humbly suggest that since I was posted in the CJI’s residence office, I know that Justice Ramana is a close friend of the CJI and is like a family member to him. “Justice Ramana is a frequent visitor to the residence of the CJI. Because of this I fear that my affidavit and evidence will not receive an objective and fair hearing.” The woman had also asked the panel to allow her to appear before it along with a lawyer and the proceedings of the committee be video recorded so that there can be no dispute about what transpired in the inquiry. In the letter, the official said, the woman expressed concern over the statements made by the CJI when he sat on a bench on Saturday along with Justices Arun Mishra and Sanjiv Khanna. The committee headed by Justice Bobde, the senior-most apex court judge, was appointed Tuesday and he inducted Justices Ramana and Banerjee into it. “I decided to have Justice Ramana in the panel as he is next to me in the seniority and Justice Banerjee as she is a woman judge,” he had told PTI Tuesday. “This is going to be an in-house procedure which does not contemplate representation of advocate on behalf of parties. It is not a formal judicial proceeding,” he said. He had clarified that there is no time frame to complete the inquiry and future course of action will depend on “what comes out of the inquiry” which will be “confidential”. A three-judge bench headed by CJI on Saturday had held an unprecedented hearing in the wake of allegations made against Justice Gogoi. Describing the allegations of sexual harassment against him as “unbelievable”, the CJI had convened the extraordinary hearing at the Supreme Court during which he said a larger conspiracy was behind it and he would not stoop so low even to deny these allegations. Justice Gogoi had said some “bigger force” wanted to “deactivate” the office of the CJI. After the Saturday’s hearing, lawyers’ organisations and jurists had criticised the CJI for constituting the bench comprising himself, though he had recused himself in the middle of the hearing leaving it for justices Mishra and Khanna to pass the order. On Tuesday, the CJI had set up a fresh bench comprising justices Mishra, R F Nariman and Deepak Gupta to adjudicate the matter relating to sexual harassment levelled against him. The former woman apex court staffer had levelled the allegations against the CJI which was brought into public domain by some news portals on April 20. She had worked at Justice Gogoi’s home office in Delhi and the allegations were carried by these news portals based on the affidavit by the woman. In her affidavit, the woman described two incidents of alleged molestation, days after Justice Gogoi was appointed CJI last October and her subsequent persecution. She alleged that she was removed from service after she rebuffed his “sexual advances”. She claimed that her husband and brother-in-law, both of whom were head constables, were suspended for a 2012 criminal case that had been mutually resolved.
Ahmedabad: A Gujarat family, to fulfill the wish of their son suffering from learning disabilities, organised a lavish wedding for him, with all the usual fun and frolic, but without a bride. The unique, “bride-less” wedding of Ajay Barot (27) was held on May 10 in Champlanar village near Himmatnagar town of north Gujarat’s Sabarkantha district. The Barot family spent over Rs 2 lakh on the “wedding” so that his “childhood wish” to get married got fulfilled, said family members.

But he always used to ask us about when he would get married. He has attended many wedding ceremonies, and used to dance joyously in them. After attending them, he used to ask about his own marriage,” said Ajay’s uncle Kamlesh Barot. Due to his learning disabilities, Ajay never got formal education. Ajay’s father Vishnubhai Barot works as a conductor with Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation. “Just to make Ajay happy, the entire Barot family decided to organise the wedding. Since Vishnubhai’s income is limited, we came together and spent over Rs 2 lakh,” Kamlesh said. “Except for a bride, there was everything. Dance and garba programmes, fine clothes, photographers and all the rituals associated with a proper marriage. We even distributed wedding cards to 800 people and organised a lavish feast,” he added.
