The Miami Hurricanes executed an 8-lateral last second play on a kickoff return to defeat Duke 30-27 in the wildest ending you’ll ever see. Miami’s Corn Elder took the the ball into the endzone but it was a full team effort on the play that helped the Hurricanes come away with Larry Scott’s first win as the interim head coach.

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a collegiate athletic conference in the United States in which its fifteen member universities compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA’s) Division I, with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest levels for athletic competition in US-based collegiate sports. The ACC sponsors competition in twenty-five sports with many of its member institutions’ athletic programs held in high regard nationally. ACC teams and athletes have claimed dozens of national championships in multiple sports throughout the conference’s history. Generally, the ACC’s top athletes and teams in any particular sport in a given year are considered to be among the top collegiate competitors in the nation. The ACC is considered to be one of the six collegiate power conferences, all of which enjoy extensive media coverage and automatic qualifying for their football champion into the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). With the advent of the College Football Playoff in 2014, the ACC will be one of five conferences with a contractual tie-in to an “access bowl”, the successors to the BCS.

Founded in 1953 in Greensboro, North Carolina, by seven universities located in the South Atlantic States, the conference added additional members in late 1953, 1979, 1991, 2004, and 2013. The 2004 and 2013 additions extended the conference’s footprint into the Northeast and Midwest. The most recent expansion in 2013 saw the additions of the University of Notre Dame, the University of Pittsburgh, and Syracuse University. In 2012, the University of Maryland’s Board of Regents voted to withdraw from the ACC to join the Big Ten Conference. On November 28, 2012, the ACC’s Council of Presidents voted unanimously to invite the University of Louisville as a full member, replacing Maryland.

2013 NRTW Welcome – 844-292-1318 New Hampshire legal aid

Welcome to National Right to Work. I’m Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Committee and the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

I’d like to take a moment to give you a brief overview of the National Right to Work organizations — groups that are so critical to holding the line against the overwhelming forced unionism power grabs underway in Washington, DC and growing the worker freedom movement from coast to coast.

But don’t take our word for it.

When asked about efforts to roll back Big Labor’s forced unionism privileges, Teamster President James Hoffa fumed that “Leading the charge is National Right to Work.”

President Barack Obama has repeatedly paid back the union bosses who spent over a billion dollars to elect him and other forced unionism proponents in 2008, and he has made it clear he will continue to do in his second term.

In fact, one of first acts after being re-elected was to invite Organized Labor’s top bosses to the White House for a closed doors meeting to discuss their goals for his second term.

Over the past several years, the White House has been anything but shy about extending sweetheart deals and special privileges to Big Labor —

— from gutting the Department of Labor division responsible for policing union corruption and basic transparency standards

. . . to rolling back union financial disclosure rules

. . . to installing key union boss cronies in important roles in the judiciary and federal agencies.

With the help of concerned citizens like you, in the last few years the National Right to Work Committee led the fight to defeat Big Labor legislation designed to undermine secret ballots in union elections and the federal drive to forcibly unionize policemen and firefighters across the country.

But these victories were hard fought, and Big Labor’s massive political operation shows no sign of slowing down. Despite a stinging rebuke from voters in the 2010 midterms, union politicos have shifted their strategy to under-the-table bureaucratic power grabs in an effort to avoid new Congressional oversight. And with a divided Congress, I expect even more Executive branch power grabs in the next few years.

With all these payoffs to Big Labor, it’s urgent for concerned citizens like you and me to fight back. That’s where the National Right to Work organizations come in.

The National Right to Work Committee, established in 1955, is a 2.6 million member, nonprofit, nonpartisan citizens’ organization dedicated to the principle that all Americans must have the right to join a union if they choose to, but none should ever be forced to affiliate with or pay money to a union in order to get or keep a job.

The National Right to Work Committee combats compulsory unionism through an aggressive program designed to mobilize public opposition to compulsory unionism and enlist public support for Right to Work legislation.

By supporting the National Right to Work Committee, you and millions of other citizens have a real impact in the fight against compulsory unionism. In 2010, concerned supporters like you were able to stop several Big Labor power grabs by getting involved in the legislative process through the Committee’s programs.

Top AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka has promised that Big Labor’s “Card Check” bill will be at the top of the agenda in 2013 — and he will use his forced-dues-backed political war chest to defeat any member of Congress who stands in his way in 2014.

The National Right to Work Committee has developed a plan to stop the union bosses’ agenda dead in its tracks. And the Committee is working to force a vote on a National Right to Work Act, a bill that would make it illegal to compel workers to join or pay dues to a union just to keep a job.

The Committee also plans to push forward with state Right to Work laws across the country, challenging union bosses in places like Montana, New Hampshire, Missouri, and Kentucky. In fact, in 2012, Indiana and Michigan became the 23rd and 24th Right to Work states in the country.

Your contributions will help the Committee run massive Internet, mail, and phone programs that generate waves of grassroots pressure.

This simple but powerful approach has proven successful in countless fights against compulsory unionism.

While the Committee focuses on Right to Work legislation here in Washington, D.C. and across the country, the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation fights Big Labor in the courts and the federal labor bureaucracy and provides free legal aid to victimized employees….

National Consultation on Prison Legal Aid at New Delhi, April 2013: Part 159 – 844-292-1318 Montana legal aid

National Consultation on Prison Legal Aid at New Delhi, April 2013

A Two Day National Consultation on Prison Legal Aid was held at Indian Social Institute, Institutional Area Lodhi Road 13th to 14th April 2013. It was an initiative taken by Human Rights and Law Network. Many Activists & Lawyers women and men were participated from different parts of the state of India.
Prisoner’s Rights
In India, eighty percent of the inmates in the jails are under trials. The major problems faced by these inmates are not only of not getting a trial but that of not being granted bail, inhuman treatment in jails, facing poor conditions, lack of proper medical treatment, etc. There are various statutes such as the Prisoners Act, 1894; the Model Manual Prison India, etc. and various precedents which have been laid down in landmark cases which provide for the rights which these prisoners are entitled to. However, the problem today lies not in the availability of these rights but in the implementation of these rights and precedents. We at HRLN, under the Prisoners Rights Initiative work towards helping these prisoners get their rightful treatment in the prisons, safeguard their access to a fair and speedy trial, facilitate bail procedures and work towards various other procedural requirements to ensure that these prisoners make efforts to only achieve reformation and don’t have to fight for their survival.
Issues of Concern
• 80% prisoners are under trials
• Even though bail is granted, prisoners are not released.
• Lack or insufficient provision of medical aid to prisoners
• Callous and insensitive attitude of jail authorities
• Punishment carried out by jail authorities not coherent with punishment given by court.
• Harsh mental and physical torture
• Lack of proper legal aid
• High amount of surety ordered by courts which indigent prisoners can’t pay
• Rejection of surety bonds due to lack of money or verification of addresses, as indigent prisoners don’t have houses.
• Corruption and other malpractices.
• Guard brutality and sexual abuse.
• Other unsafe physical conditions.
• Disability discrimination.
• Lack of mental health and medical care.
For any kind of legal and social help related to Prisoner’s Rights, one can contact Human Rights Law Network. For more, visit us at http://www.hrln.org/hrln/prisoners-rights.html

We at HRLN visit jails to have direct communication with the prisoners who have been in these prisons for years due to under trial. During the jail visits these lawyers or paralegal worker meet the prisoners and under trails directly and not only provide legal aid but also identify areas for work to be done. Many juveniles those were languishing in adult jails were released or transferred to Juvenile Homes. It has been very stately presumed that prisoners have undergone poor upkeep even when they are extremely sick. At HRLN we make it an agenda to ensure that sick prisoners are provided with better treatment.

The award-winning international phenomenon THE X FACTOR is back. In Season Three of the hit competition series hosted by Mario Lopez, THE X FACTOR judges will travel the nation searching for talent 12 years old or over — both solo artists and vocal groups — who are willing to brave the panel for a chance to make their dreams of becoming a superstar come true. Auditions for THE X FACTOR were held this spring in Los Angeles, CA; Charleston, SC; New Orleans, LA; Long Island, NY; and Denver, CO.

Contestants will audition in front of THE X FACTOR judges, including Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, Paulina Rubio, and an audience of thousands. This will be the ultimate test to prove they have the vocal ability, charisma and stage presence it takes to become a global superstar or breakout music act and win a recording contract with Syco/Sony Music.

Those contestants who survive the first auditions will be divided into four categories: Boys, Girls, Over 25s and Groups. Each category will be mentored by one of the show’s judges. Not only is it a competition between the hopefuls to stake their claim for the coveted win, but it’s also a showdown among the judges as to whose acts will dominate the competition and make it to the finals. The judges may have their say in how the competition progresses, but it will be up to America to decide who ultimately has THE X FACTOR.
