THIS weekend sees the arrival of Father's Day - that annual event when dads get the rare chance to be spoiled. We've already celebrated our mums this year with Mothering Sunday, and dad's special day is on Sunday June 17! Here’s all you need to know... What is the history of Father's Day? Father's Day is rumoured to have started when a young woman wanted to honour her war hero dad. In May 1909, Sonora Dodd sat in church listening to a moving Mother's Day sermon. She then decided she wanted to designate a special day just for her dad, William Jackson Smart. Dodd's mother had died in childbirth and her Civil War veteran dad had raised five kids on his own. The following year, she wanted to celebrate Father's Day on June 5th, her father's birthday. She even and petitioned for the holiday to be recognised in her hometown of Spokane, Washington, Needing more time to arrange the festivities, Spokane’s mayor pushed the date back by two weeks. The first Father's Day was … [Read more...] about When is Father’s Day 2018 around the world, why do the dates differ and what are the celebration’s origins?

The First V.R. Krishna Iyer Memorial National Law Lecture delivered by Hon’ble Justice J.Chelameshwar on November 28, 2015 at Kochi. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am before you overwhelmed by emotions, which are conflicting. It is a singular honour to be called upon to deliver the ‘First V.R. Krishna Iyer Memorial Law Lecture.’ But, at the same time, the very fact that I have to come back for a memorial lecture within a year after attending Justice Iyer’s 100th Birthday Celebrations stirs in me conflicting emotions. That Justice Iyer is no more with us makes me sad in spite of the knowledge that everything in this universe is transient. However, a 100-year life span is an extra-ordinary gift of nature to a very few human beings. Justice Iyer was one of them. May be he transited from ASAT to SAT.To make any attempt to extol the great accomplishments of the multifaceted personality of Justice Iyer would be a reckless adventure for somebody like me. To the best of my … [Read more...] about Supreme Court Structural and Jurisprudential Problems
In 2005, New York Times reporter Judith Miller garnered national attention for her refusal to disclose the identity of her source outing Valerie Plame Wilson as an operative of the Central Intelligence Agency. The D.C. Circuit rejected Miller’s claim that the identity of the source was protected by a reporter’s privilege. Her refusal to comply with a grand jury subpoena meant she was in contempt of court, and she spent eighty-five days in jail as a result.While Miller’s case reignited the public debate of the merits of a reporter’s privilege, the current issue for state and federal courts is defining the scope of the reporter’s shield law. Generally, areporter’s shield law is a “statutory privilege which allows a news gatherer to decline to reveal sources of information” and newsgathering materials. Like the attorney/client and doctor/patient privileges, the reporter’s privilege attempts to foster the flow of information … [Read more...] about Defining “Journalist”: Whether and How A Federal Reporter’s Shield Law Should Apply to Bloggers
Quoted by journalists Antonin Andre and Karim Rissouli in "Conversations Privees avec le President" (Private Conversations with the President), Hollande highlighted the strain of politics, the burden of high office and the passing of time. "I know what it's like... to spend years without a personal life," he said. "But I do have the desire" to stand for re-election, he said. "That is my personal inclination." He added, though: "I would not make the choice of putting my name forward if the signs are that it could not lead to a possibility of victory." "If I lost, I would quit politics." The president celebrated his 62nd birthday on August 12. "When you get beyond 60, the years have a different value. I also know what the weight of the (presidential) task is. It's true, it could also be a kind of freedom not to do it..." Hollande said, apparently musing out loud. Separately, in remarks that the journalists dated to November 2013, Hollande said of the presidency, "It's tough, of … [Read more...] about France’s Hollande says feels ‘urge’ to run again in 2017
The real first sign that Thursday was going to be a particularly tumultuous day for Donald Trump came at the start of what was billed to be a West Virginia roundtable about tax reform.“This was going to be my remarks,” Trump told his West Virginia audience while holding up a copy of prepared talking points. “It would have taken about two minutes, but, to hell with it. Reading off the first paragraph, I said, ‘This is boring.’ Come on. Tell it like it is.”What followed next had nothing to do with tax reform. The president proceeded to resurrect his own conspiracy theory about why he trailed Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million votes in the 2016 election.Related: Donald Trump through the years 54 PHOTOS Donald Trump through the years See Gallery Donald Trump through the years Donald Trump with Alfred Eisenpreis, New York City Economic Development Administrator.
