first_imgCategories: Editorial, OpinionFor The Daily GazetteNo woman celebrates abortion. No woman wants an abortion the way she wants an ice cream cone or an iPhone X. Legally, there is no question that the new law allows abortion for any reason up to the moment of birth.Gov. Andrew Cuomo can spin it any way he wants, but as an attorney, he knows this is true.Lawmakers could have put language in the law to limit late-term abortions to cases where there is a grave physical health danger to the mother, but they didn’t.Instead, they gave Planned Parenthood exactly what it wanted — an open-ended “health” exception that allows abortion for reasons of age, economics and family circumstances; virtually anything will suffice.Think about that.An unfettered absolute right to abortion for all nine months of pregnancy is now imbedded in New York law.The same fully formed infants that parents excitedly watch on the ultrasound screen kicking their legs and sucking their thumbs can now be legally destroyed at any point in their in utero development. But lawmakers didn’t stop there.They also removed protections in law for infants who might accidentally survive an abortion.Yes, that happens.And yes, our law had previously offered these babies immediate medical attention and gave them all of the legal rights each and every one of us enjoys as a born human being. But no more. Now they can be left to die on the table.  New York’s criminal charge of felony abortion was also wiped off the books by the new law.Human traffickers and domestic abusers are the ones rejoicing here. No longer can they be charged for coerced abortions or attacks intentionally targeting a pregnancy to cause miscarriage.In early February, a pregnant woman and her unborn child were viciously bludgeoned to death in Queens.The district attorney charged the alleged perpetrator with second degree murder and second-degree abortion, but had to drop the abortion charge when he realized the crime no longer exists.As a result, there will never be justice for the death of that very-much-wanted baby.So much for “choice.”Gov. Cuomo has said that New York’s new abortion law is the most aggressive one in the country.He’s right about that.center_img Abortion is a tragedy all the way around.Biologically, that’s because abortion ends the life of a developing human. It’s not a developing carrot or a developing toad.It’s not like losing an appendix or losing your tonsils.It’s the loss of a developing human child.The celebration of New York’s new abortion policy was shameful.The cheering in the Senate chamber, the party at the governor’s mansion and the lighting of state buildings like the Freedom Tower in Manhattan were deeply offensive to many New Yorkers.They are right to be outraged.  And their outrage will not soon be forgotten. It is overly permissive, extreme and dangerous.It will leave in its wake more dead infants and many wounded mothers. It was all about politics and not about the best interests of the people.   Did we need it? Absolutely not.New York already had the highest abortion rate of any state in the country.And that’s a heartbreaking designation, not a celebratory badge of honor.Kathleen M.

Registered bidders then place their bids over the phone with an agent on the ground. Anyone wanting to bid has to fill out a standard REIQ authority to convey telephone bids form.More from newsCOVID-19 renovation boom: How much Aussies are spending to give their houses a facelift during the pandemic3 days agoWhizzkid buys almost one property a month during COVID-197 days ago“In theory, there should be no great change in terms of results, because if you think about the important ingredients (for auctions) it’s buyers, not crowds,” Mr Burgin said. “Crowds play no function in the transaction.” Auctioneer Tara Kelly of Professional Media at 84 Harding Street, Hendra which is one of the properties which will go under the virtual hammer on April 4. Picture: Annette Dew.Social distancing rules are bringing an inevitable end to outdoor auctions as we know them. Instead, we could become a nation of armchair bidders as virtual auctions rise up to take their place. According to Peter Burgin, a chief auctioneer for Brisbane-based real estate agency Place Estate Agents, said there was no reason why auctions could not continue using digital tools and working within Queensland regulations. “There are a couple of online platforms you can use. Gavl is one we have been using for a couple of years now, but given the circumstances, it’s become a more important tool than ever,” he said.“It can ensure the continuation of business, while meeting social distancing standards.”While the livestreaming platform allows potential buyers to bid online in some states, Mr Burgin said the rules were different in Queensland.

It has such a strong following. It’s the new digital letterbox dropping, people seeing your face and brand digitally.”Mr Burgin said he expected sellers to continue with auctions rather than cancel them. “I think people understand that there is nothing that is preventing anybody, residing anywhere in the world from participating in an online auction,” he said.

first_imgNew Delhi: National badminton coach Pullela Gopichand addressed a special online session organised by the Sports Authority of India for its newly appointed Assistant Directors and spoke about the immense importance of coaches in the sporting ecosystem.Gopichand who has coached India to two Olympic medals in 2012 (Saina Nehwal) and 2016 (P.V. Sindhu) said: “You want people to be on-field, you want them to work as coaches… (however) as time goes by, a lot of people want to become mentors and administrators and they don’t want to continue coaching.“As administrators I want you to be aware, of who are putting in the effort and who are remotely managing. Most successful models worldwide are coach-driven, sports science and athlete-driven. People working on the field should be the decision-makers.”Gopichand added that rather than having grassroot-level coaches, intermediate coaches and elite coaches as part of a hierarchy, they should all work parallel to each other. He also added that it is important coaches are constantly motivated so that they don’t lose interest in their job.The badminton ace who became a national hero with his All-England Championship win in 2001, said that the funding model of sports could be changed in order to throw up more champions. “All present models are athlete-centric, they don’t benefit the sport as a whole. They benefit individual athletes. We should look at funding a group rather than individual athletes. The structure should throw up champions. The level of competition should be so high, that they become world-class without them even knowing. The number 2 and number 3 should be constantly pushing the number 1,” he explained.Pullela Gopichand added that to create more winners, it is important to have a strong domestic competition structure, “The competition structure should be strong where everyone is striving to beat the other. We need to find small pockets where not only training is world-class but competition is also world-class. Internal competition is what will make people strive to get better.”He also emphasised on sports administrators taking up a more holistic approach towards player development, “Administrators should look at being innovative and ensuring the holistic development of the athlete, and we should see that development happening all through. The champion will last longer if there is a more holistic approach,” said Gopichand.
