Justice conveys Court’s modern role

first_imgThough the federal government has shut down, Notre Dame students studying in Washington, D.C. listened to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy speak about the Court’s role in contemporary U.S. politics at a University of California, D.C. (UCDC) event Monday. Before the event, students submitted questions for Kennedy via a Google Doc for pre-approval by the planning committee. Students were told they would be able to ask unscripted questions later in the program if the committee did not select their submissions. Junior Nicole Sganga said time constraints prevented the Notre Dame students from asking a question, though she wanted to ask him about civic discourse in the United States.  “I was aching to ask Justice Kennedy his position on the current state of civic discourse,” she said. “Luckily, the moderator sneaked in a question regarding the current state of American politics toward the end of the Q & A. Justice Kennedy responded with an eloquent plea for a higher discourse founded on fact and reason [addressed to] his counterparts in the executive and legislative branches.” Junior Szymon Barnas said he hoped to ask Kennedy to elaborate on his description of the Supreme Court’s place in contemporary U.S. politics. “Justice Kennedy has been on the speaking circuit the past couple of weeks and has commented many times on the Supreme Court becoming an arena to settle the hot-button political issues of the day because of our dysfunctional democracy,” Barnas said. “As I read about the cases on the docket for this upcoming Supreme Court term regarding issues like campaign contributions, public prayer and affirmative action, I felt that Justice Kennedy’s description of the Court was all the more accurate and hoped he would comment with some thoughts on the upcoming term.”  Barnas said he was impressed by Kennedy’s forthright answers and engaging speaking presence.  “Justice Kennedy gave very forthright and though-provoking answers,” Barnas said. “I found his observations on what it takes to be a good judge and how the Court is affect by cultural pressures to be very insightful. I enjoyed his thoughts on the Court’s role in democracy. Kennedy said laws and the Supreme Court are really a ‘narrative of our moral sense’ and that ‘injustice is really hard to see in the present.’  “As a student who is thinking about attending law school, these observations really made me consider the interplay between justice, equality and the rule of law, [as well as] the more noble responsibilities of lawyers and judges.” Sganga said Kennedy’s remarks on the current government shutdown resonated with her. “When addressing politics, Justice Kennedy was very careful not to criticize or weigh in too much on the current state of the administration and Congress,” Sganga said. “He mentioned earlier that he is not a political man. However, he did say this much, [loosely] paraphrased, ‘Right now the whole world is watching the United States amid this government shutdown. And for half of them, the jury is still out on democracy. The way we conduct ourselves is a reflection on the nature of our governmental institution.’” Sganga said before she attended the event, she was excited by the prospect of seeing Kennedy speak because of the essential role he played in recent Court decisions.  “I’ve done some research on Justice Kennedy and even read a few of the decisions on gay rights and marriage that he had authored,” Sganga said. “Going into the presentation, I knew he was the swing vote. So, I figured it would be interesting to hear from a justice with such a large sway.” Sganga said she felt Kennedy connected with the students on a personal level. “Here was a man with so many experiences, so much wisdom, and so much say in how our government operates. Yet, he was funny, witty and even charming,” Sganga said. “He had a way of making the students he spoke to feel comfortable and at ease. … He came across as just so thoughtful and well spoken, as if he had really reflected upon each word he communicated.  “I guess that’s what you would like to hear about a Supreme Court Justice, but it also made me wish that more politicians in Washington, D.C. acted and spoke with the same care.” Kennedy’s talk was the highlight among other experiences she had with the Supreme Court while in Washington, D.C. this semester, Sganga said. “On Sunday, I attended Red Mass at St. Michael’s Cathedral down the street and was lucky enough to sit through the same service as Chief Justice Roberts, Justice Scalia, Justice Thomas, Justice Breyer and Justice Kagan,” Sganga said. “It was the icing on the cake to hear from Justice Kennedy the next day. Six Supreme Court justices in one week – not bad. Our class visited the Supreme Court a few weeks ago. … A few of us vowed to return now that the court is in session, we would love to observe an oral argument in person.” Barnas said even among the Notre Dame in Washington Program’s various meetings with influential individuals in national politics, Kennedy’s talk stood out as a “surreal experience.” “A valuable part of the D.C. Program is meeting with individuals who have a big impact in the public policy arena, ranging from senators, to lobbyists, to White House officials and now a Supreme Court Justice. I want to find out what inspires and informs these people and how I should strive to be in their place in the future,” Barnas said. “Justice Kennedy is often seen as having a very powerful position on the Court as the ‘swing justice’ and many upcoming decisions will be contingent upon his interpretation of the Constitution and Court precedents.”last_img read more

(Nov. 13) – Night two at the Duel In the Desert saw Lucas Schott and Jordan Grabouski ace Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified qualifiers at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.Schott won Friday night’s first feature ahead of Ryan Ruter, Dylan Smith and John Hansen. Joining Grabouski in the top four for the nightcap were R.C. Whitwell, Hunter Marriott and Travis Hagen.All eight drivers advance to Saturday’s $7,777 to win main event. Both qualifying features paid $777 to win.Schott led the first qualifier from the drop of the green and pulled out to nearly a half straightaway lead before fifth-running Jeremy Payne, a four-time Duel winner, slowed in turn two.The race was for second following the ensuing restart as Hansen had his hands full holding off Ruter for second while David Murray Jr. motored behind in fourth.Ruter had caught Hansen for the runner-up spot before 2008 race winner Murray spun on unlucky lap 13. Twenty-sixth starting Benji LaCrosse drove by Eddie Belec and Dylan Smith to crack the top four shortly after the race resumed.Schott kept to the lower line while Ruter ran up high. The distance between the two was down to a car length but Schott kept the front spot until the 25th and final lap was scored.Smith, who’d started 17th, and Hansen both shuffled LaCrosse out of a qualifying spot before the checkers flew.It took Grabouski seven circuits to find his way to the front after starting inside row three in the nightcap, first passing Tim Ward for second and then Ricky Alvarado for the point.Alvarado exited with mechanical issues and shortly afterwards Grabouski was pulling away from Whitwell, his closet pursuit, and entering lapped traffic by midway.While Grabouski negotiated traffic and Whitwell ran a distant second, Marriott and Jeff Taylor both tried to reel in Ward for third.Taylor broke on the backstretch with five laps left. Marriott used a great restart to steal second from Ward and challenge Whitwell. Ward exited the top four with a flat before Grabouski checked out for the victory.Last-chance qualifying fills the starting grid for the main event. If not already vote eligible, the winner becomes a candidate for the 2016 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.1st qualifier – 1. Lucas Schott, Chatfield, Minn.; 2. Ryan Ruter, Kanawha, Iowa; 3.

Cricket News Australian batsmen need to learn from Kohli, says Graeme Hick

first_imgMelbourne : Disappointed at Australia’s abject surrender in the first innings, batting coach Graeme Hick has asked his batsmen to show more intent and learn the art of pacing innings from India skipper Virat Kohli. After the hosts were bundled out for a meagre 151 in 66.5 overs on day three of the third Test, Hick stressed on the need to develop awareness of the game and gave the example of Kohli’s first innings 204-ball 82-run knock.“We spoke about how Kohli went about it. We knew (Cheteshwar) Pujara, even Kohli, one of the most explosive batters, got to 20 off 25, 26 balls, then the rest of his innings took whatever it was,” Hick said on SEN Radio on Saturday.Also Read | Yearender 2018: Virat Kohli’s list of dodgy decisions hurt Indian cricket team“For the best player in the world to change his innings and play like that, if you can’t be on the same field as him and watch him and learn from what he is doing, then you are in the wrong space.“There are certainly thing our players can take out of that. It takes a lot of discipline, a lot of patience and, on top of that, you have got to bat with intent,” he added.Australia’s batting woes against India at the MCG have sparked debate about their technique and the impact of the Big Bash League on batsmen.Hick said it was disappointing to see his hard work come undone and urged his batsmen to learn quickly and find the right balance.“It’s disappointing as a head coach. You feel if you are putting the work in and doing the right things, over a period of time, the players learn. Unfortunately, it’s not the easiest thing to learn out in the middle at the MCG of the Boxing Day Test match,” said the former England batsman.Also Read | Vodafone revises its Rs 399 prepaid plan, reduces data by 14GB“You have got to learn quickly in international cricket these days because you don’t get a lot of time to remedy what you might feel is wrong.”Australia scored 258 for eight in their second innings after Pat Cummins top-scored with an unbeaten 61. The home team require another 141 runs with two wickets remaining to win the Test.
