February 1, 2004 Regular News Fourth DCA initiates e-filing as step toward going paperless Fourth DCA initiates e-filing as a step toward going paperless The Fourth District Court of Appeal anticipates moving toward a paperless system in the near future and is testing the concept by first initiating an e-filing procedure.While paper filings are not yet going away, Fourth DCA Judge Martha Warner told the Appellate Practice Section at the Bar’s Miami Midyear Meeting that the court also wants lawyers to begin electronically filing their documents with the court along with the paper filings.Judge Warner said a true e-filing component will not be ready until the court obtains the necessary document management and indexing systems and institutes the rule changes necessary to move to a paperless court.“It is the up-and-coming thing,” Warner said. “We have decided to just jump in the middle of it and get going on it.”Right now, Warner said, only one state appellate court in the nation — Arizona — has gone paperless, but the Fourth DCA has put in a supplemental budget request with the legislature this year to obtain the funding needed to set up a pilot project in Florida.In the meantime, she said, the court is asking attorneys to submit a copy of all their filings with the court online instead of on disc.Judge Warner said on the court’s Web site (www.4dca.org) there is a link on the left side that allows a lawyer to register to e-file. Once the lawyer fills out the registration information and it is verified, the court will send the lawyer an e-mail with instructions on how to file.In addition to briefs, Warner also said the court wants lawyers to file their transcripts on line “because part of the purpose of this is to assist us in letting our staff start to learn how to use and how to work with electronic documents before we actually go completely paperless.”“I happen to think this is going to be great,” Warner said.Fourth DCA docket now available online The Fourth District Court of Appeal’s docket is now available on-line.To access the docket, go to the court’s Web site at www.4dca.org and click on “Case Docket” on the left in the blue field.
Valamar is also preparing to reopen its camps and hotels during May and June. However, the opening of tourist facilities primarily depends on the opening of borders and the creation of preconditions for guests to arrive in the desired destination, in which Croatia has the advantage because it is available for our emitting markets as a self-destination. Of course, this situation will significantly slow down investments in the tourism sector. Thus, Valamar Riviera planned to invest over HRK 800 million in the preparation of this year’s tourist season. “Due to the crisis caused by the appearance of Covid-19 and the closure of facilities on March 15.3, it is estimated that due to business interruptions, the operating loss by the end of May 2020 will amount to 110 to 120 million kuna. stand out from Valamar. In the first quarter of 2020, the realized operating loss amounted to HRK 104 million and was lower compared to the same period last year due to austerity measures taken at all levels of operations. After the escalation of the crisis situation in March, Valamar paused its operations and launched strategic action plans primarily with the aim of preserving liquidity and jobs. According to the published business results in the first quarter of 2020, Valamar Riviera generated total revenues of HRK 49 million, which is a decrease of 5% compared to the comparable period last year. “In the past 60 days, intensive work has been done on planning and preparing the restart of the business. At the beginning of March, Valamar established a Risk Management Committee, which timely defined new sales, procurement, payment and other liquidity protection measures, announced the Pause program, restart to preserve jobs and temporarily suspended work on investment projects. With the consent of the Supervisory Board, the proposal of the decision on the payment of dividends from 2019 was revoked, and the management receives a salary reduced by up to 30% until all employees who are on hold return to work. In the next 30 days, Valamar Riviera will finalize Covid-19 policies and plans for 2020, which should enable a quick restart of operations when the conditions are met, but also provide for the preservation of liquidity and the business system until 2021, when full normalization of operations is expected.”They point out from Valamar. Of course, the question is how many hotels will be opened this year, and recommendations on all measures are still pending from the National Civil Protection Headquarters and the CNIPH. However, the works on the started projects were stopped on March 25 in order to protect health and safety, and in accordance with the prevention measures. The continuation of works is planned for May with the aim of completing one part of the investments by the summer, and postponing the other part of the investments for the autumn of 2020 or 2021, Valamar points out. Of the total revenues, HRK 41 million refers to sales revenues, the decline of which is a consequence of the closure of tourist facilities due to general prevention measures issued by the competent authorities due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists he is relaxed about the club’s current situation and has stressed he “fully intends” to remain as manager, regardless of who owns the midlands outfit. “But I fully intend to be here. That’s me being totally honest. “If people come in, you sit with them and see what happens. If not, you sit with Randy, which I tend to do at the end of the season.” Both on Sunday and in a statement released a few days earlier following the suspension of assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa, Lerner appeared to express sympathy for Lambert, referring to the manager’s handling of “unexpected issues” and the injuries that his squad has been hit by this season. Lambert, meanwhile, has expressed his frustration at the “position of mediocrity” he feels the club have been in stretching back to before his arrival, and the need for future investment – although he also says he would not change the experience he has had so far with Villa. He said on Thursday: “With the size of this football club, with the fanbase it’s got, I never came here to sit like this. It’s been like this for the last four years. “But it’s been an incredible experience these past two years. “Would I have changed the experience? No. Because it will make you stronger. “The lads have always given me everything they have. I don’t think anyone can argue with that. We have had our ups and downs. “But this football club has been in a position these past four years of mediocrity. That’s the bottom line. “It will need investment, that’s for sure, to compete at the top end. “The football club will need a kick-on. “I think Randy has been brilliant with that since he’s been here. He’s been excellent with me on that side of it. “But if you’re going to go and buy players – the ones I have been linked with – then you will need money.” Meanwhile, Lambert says he is pleased Yacouba Sylla is disappointed at having had limited game-time – even if he is less than impressed with the Villa midfielder’s recent comments on the matter. Sylla – who has made only four appearances, all as a substitute, this calendar year – was quoted this week as saying he is looking to leave the club on loan in the summer due his unhappiness at spending so much time on the bench. And Lambert said: “I understand any player’s frustration at not playing. “You wouldn’t expect people to just sit there and not play. You are glad on that aspect. “Should he have spoken about it? Probably not. But that comes with experience. “I am glad he’s disappointed at not playing. That’s normal. “The three lads in the middle of the pitch have been doing really well for us, though. So Yac just has to do his utmost to get in the side.” And when asked about that on Thursday at his press conference to preview Saturday’s trip to Swansea, Lambert said: “He (Lerner) was over here on Tuesday. “I had a chat with him. Not a long chat. I am the manager of the football club but I am not privy to everything that goes on. “His statement to me was pretty clear – he will address everything at the end of the season. Everyone must respect that. This is his club, you have to respect his decision. “It will become clear, I am pretty sure, when he decides what he has to say. “I am relaxed. I am not uptight about anything. I am here to win football matches. That’s always the case.” A takeover of Villa could bring further questions about the future of Lambert, under whom they finished 15th last term, his first season in charge. The Scot is keeping an open mind about what might happen, but has emphasised that he wants to stay, whether Lerner remains in control or not. Lambert, whose side are currently five points clear of the relegation zone in 15th place with four more games to go, said: “If a new owner comes in, you have a conversation. That’s normal. Villa have had a turbulent time of it of late, with a run of five games without a win – four of them defeats – seeing them sucked into the Barclays Premier League relegation battle, two of the coaching staff being suspended and speculation growing that chairman Randy Lerner is ready to sell the club. In a statement released on Sunday, American Lerner said he would address the “steady rumours of a sale” after the season has finished. Press Association
For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Nathan Lyon has taken 16 wickets in the two Tests against India. The Australian offspinner has dismissed Virat Kohli the most number of times in Tests with seven and he has received immense praise from Sachin Tendulkar. Lyon’s haul of 5/67 and 3/39 on a pitch which assisted the fast bowlers immensely at the new Perth stadium won him plenty of admirers and cemented his reputation as one of the best spin bowlers in the world. However, there is one person who is absolutely fuming with the performance of Kohli and the Indian cricket team in Perth. Sourav Ganguly, who was a magnificent player of spin, has a clear message to the Indian cricket team and revealed in a chat that he was about to send an angry SMS to Kohli but did not do it.“I wanted to tell him that you shouldn’t give so many wickets to spinners outside the subcontinent. There is no doubt that Nathan Lyon is a great spinner but so were Shane Warne, Muttiah Muralitharan and Graeme Swann,” Ganguly told in a chat with India TV.The left-hander, who has scored over 10,000 ODI runs and 8000 Test runs, had a clear message for Kohli’s Indian cricket team and that was to adopt an attacking approach. “They have shown him too much respect by defending a lot of deliveries outside the off-stump. They should look to build towards a total at least in excess of 300-350,” Ganguly said.Read More | Mitchell Johnson slams Virat Kohli, calls his behavior ‘disrespectful’The former India skipper, who had captained the side to a 1-1 draw during India’s tour of Australia in 2003/04, added he was not happy with the performance of many batsmen in the team, some of whom are traveling Down Under for the second time since the 2014/15 series which India lost 0-2.Read More | Naseeruddin Shah calls Virat Kohli ‘worlds worst behaved player’“They have been there before. Logically their game should improve over the years but from what we saw in Perth, it is difficult to say it has. Barring Kohli and (Cheteshwar) Pujara, none of them are making a lot of runs and this is not good for the team. If India has to win, they will have to do a lot more,” Ganguly added.India will be taking on Australia in the third Test starting on Boxing Day in Melbourne. In the last encounter between both the sides in 2014, Virat Kohli scored a magnificent century and shared a brilliant partnership with Ajinkya Rahane but Australia managed to hold on for a draw and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
