McGavick-Gayheart ticket to forfeit 12 percent of votes following Judicial Council sanction

first_imgUpdated Saturday at 1:53 p.m.The McGavick-Gayheart ticket will be required to forfeit 12 percent of the votes cast for it during Friday’s student government presidential runoff election, Judicial Council announced in a press release Friday morning.According to the release, juniors Gates McGavick and Corey Gayheart were “found to have supporters releasing confidential information from previous Judicial Council allegation hearings, as well as engaging in a continued pattern of unethical behavior,” which violated Judicial Council’s Election Regulations and Sections 13.4(e), 17.1(g) and 17.1(h) of the Student Union Constitution.The aspect of the Election Regulations the ticket violated, the release said, mandates that candidates are “responsible for [their] actions as well as the actions of [their] supporters.” Section 13.4(e) of the Student Union Constitution states that, aside from information included in Judicial Council press releases, “all other information pertaining to hearings and appeals shall be considered confidential.”Section 17.1(g), another section the ticket was found to have violated, reads, “Candidates may not be involved in or instruct others to engage in any unethical behavior as detailed in 17.1(h).” Section 17.1(h), the final section Judicial Council found the ticket to have violated, states that “Candidates are expected to behave ethically at all times” and states that examples of unethical behavior are “monopolization of limited bulletin board space, covering or defaming of any other candidates’ posters, insulting or defaming other candidates and harassment or misconduct toward any election officials.”According to the press release, “Judicial Council will not release the election results while there are pending allegations and appeals,” in accordance with Section 17.1(m) of the Student Union Constitution.“Our team is very disappointed in Judicial Council’s decision,” McGavick said in a statement emailed to The Observer. “We respect the confidentiality of the process and, as such, can’t share anything about the content of the politically motivated allegations. We wish we could, however, because they read like a bad episode of ‘House of Cards.’ We will be appealing the decision in the senate.”Senate called an emergency meeting to hear the McGavick-Gayheart ticket’s appeal Saturday afternoon, but a quorum was not met at the time the meeting started. As a result, the appeal was not heard, and the Election Committee’s decision of a 12 percent forfeiture of votes stood.This is the fifth instance of sanctions issued by Judicial Council in this year’s election, including one that requires the Kruszewski-Dunbar ticket to forfeit 10 percent of votes it receives in Friday’s runoff election.With the forfeitures in place for both tickets in Friday’s runoff election, it is possible that neither ticket receives a majority of votes to be declared winner. Should that be the case, the election will go to an electoral college system that is currently in place in the event of a tie, senior and Judicial Council president Matt Ross said, as there is currently no procedure in place for the event that neither ticket receives a majority in a two-ticket race.“What happens is, I have to breakdown the votes from [Friday], in terms of senate constituencies — that’s the term that the constitution uses — and I will then read off the votes based on senate constituency,” Ross said. “So … it basically turns into an electoral college, and then count the votes. Whoever wins, wins.”Tags: 2018 student government election, Judicial Council, sanctions, Student governmentlast_img read more

NYK to Build World’s Largest LNG-Powered PCTC

first_imgJapanese shipping major Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) has placed an order for what it claims to be the world largest LNG-fueled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC).A keel laying ceremony for the 73,500 GT vessel was held at NYK’s compatriot Shin Kurushima Toyohashi Shipbuilding on September 20, 2019.The newbuild is scheduled to be delivered in 2020 and will be the first large LNG-fueled PCTC to be built in Japan, according to NYK. To fly the domestic flag, it will feature a length of 199.95 meters and a width of 38 meters.In order to minimize a reduction in vehicle loading capacity caused by the installation of LNG fuel tanks, in addition to optimizing major items such as ship width, several designs for maximizing the cargo loading space will be implemented, and the new vessel will be able to transport approximately 7,000 units per voyage, the company said.With the support of Japan’s Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism for its model project to reduce CO2 emissions by using alternative fuel, the vessel will be equipped with the technology to further reduce CO2 emissions and the experimental verification in its actual voyage will be scheduled.As explained, the ship will be about 40% more energy efficient, exceeding the International Maritime Organization (IMO) EEDI phase 3 requirements* that will become effective in 2025. The vessel is additionally expected to reduce sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions by approximately 99% and nitrogen oxides (NOx) by approximately 86% compared to conventional heavy oil–fired engines.Over the past few years, NYK has been steadily moving toward using LNG as a propulsion fuel. Back in 2016, NYK built the world’s first LNG-fueled car carrier which entered in service in 2017.Last year, the group began issuing green bonds to finance LNG-fueled ships and LNG bunkering vessels, among other green financing projects.last_img read more

Cowboys vs. Patriots final score: New England’s defense controls Dallas in low-scoring win

first_imgIf the Patriots hope to repeat as Super Bowl champions, they’ll likely have to win some ugly games along the way. They reaffirmed their ability to do just that Sunday against the Cowboys, relying on defense in a 13-9 win on a rainy, windy day in New England.  Dallas, which falls to 6-5 but is still has a one-game lead on the NFC East by a game, never got in the end zone as quarterback Dak Prescott and the offense continued to struggle against quality competition. Prescott was 19 for 33 through the air for 212 yards and an interception, part of a Dallas offensive performance that netted just 130 yards after halftime. It was the fourth time this year the Patriots (10-1) haven’t allowed a touchdown. 4:28 p.m.: Jonathan Jones breaks up Prescott’s third-down pass and forces and three-and-out.4:26 p.m.: It is rainy, windy and reasonably cold in New England.

The block set up New England on the Dallas 12, and quarterback Tom Brady hit wide receiver N’Keal Harry for a 10-yard score two plays later. Brady was far from stellar himself, completing 17 of 37 attempts for 190 yards and a touchdown.Harry’s touchdown opened scoring, and the Patriots held a 10-6 advantage at halftime. The second half started with six consecutive punts before New England extended the lead with Nick Folk’s third field goal of the game.

Then, the visitors forced a punt to get Prescott the ball back on his own 5 with 2:38 to play, only for the offense to move the chains just once before turning the ball over on downs. New England then turned to running back Sony Michel (20 carries, 85 yards) to convert a first down and ice the Patriots’ victory.Sporting News tracked live scoring updates and highlights from the intriguing Week 12 game between the Cowboys and Patriots.

Sonia Gandhi dissolves Odisha Cong. committee

first_imgThe uncertainty has finally ended for the Congress in Odisha with the party’s national president Sonia Gandhi dissolving the Pradesh Congress Committee office-bearers and all other committees constituted for the recently held Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in the State.PCC president Niranjan Patnaik and two working presidents Chiranjib Biswal and Pradip Majhi, however, will continue in their posts as per the decision taken by the Congress president on Monday.Resigned from post Mr. Patnaik, who was appointed PCC president in April 2018, had resigned from his post following the poor performance of the Congress in the State in the recent elections. His resignation, however, was not accepted by the AICC.“We are sure and confident that we will fight back and recover our space in Odisha politics,” said Saptagiri Ulaka, party’s lone Member of Parliament from Koraput, in a tweet, while thanking the Congress leadership for taking the necessary steps in reviving the party in the State.A party leader in Bhubaneswar expressed satisfaction over the AICC decision. As Mr. Patnaik, Mr. Biswal and Mr. Majhi have remained in their posts they should constitute different committees of the PCC without delay, he said.Regaining lost ground Another office-bearer of the party said that organisational restructuring should be carried out at all levels to regain the party’s lost ground in the State. The ensuing urban body elections will offer a chance to revitalise the party across the State, he said.The Congress has been losing strength in Odisha in recent years by losing ground to the Bharatiya Janata Party that is growing fast since it emerged as the number one rival to the ruling Biju Janata Dal in the panchayat elections in 2017. The Congress bagged only one Lok Sabha and nine Assembly seats in the recent elections as against one Lok Sabha and 16 Assembly seats in 2014.last_img read more
