The plan would become a court order if accepted.Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile lauded the court’s chief executive officer, Sherri R. Carter, with finding an online solution to try to assist parents to resolve their child custody disputes.“The court is not currently scheduling or conducting child custody mediations as part of essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Brazile said in a statement. “This new online tool is another way the court is continuing to offer convenient, safe ways to help Los Angeles County residents access justice from anywhere, which helps to promote social distancing in our courthouses.”The program will be accessible later this month at www.lacourt.org/division/familylaw/familylaw.aspx.The program offers an alternative to mediation appointments and allows the parties to resolve their cases much sooner, according to the court.If parents are not able to resolve all child custody and visitation disputes through the online tool, they will be required to attend a Family Court Services mediation appointment in-person at a future date. In-person mediation appointments are scheduled many months from now due to COVID-19 restrictions that prioritize essential, time-sensitive matters, according to the court.

Trains

first_imgI spent a relatively normal day in Brussels, eating chicken, breaking into duck ponds and other such  leisurely activities. A friend took me to the train station, I waited for half an hour and hopped on a train  that was clearly marked “Liege”. The porter had told me it was quite a slow train so I listened to Lou Reed  and read for a while. An hour and a half had passed, I was beginning to get suspicious. Getting to Brussels had only taken  me an hour.I was restless. A PVC ball with a tennis ball inside rolled towards me so I stood up and  asked the whole carriage if it was theirs. I spoke in French, no-one responded. So I sat back down and  tried to extract the tennis ball from the PVC ball surrounding it. A gang of grannies to my left were  giggling at me so I said in French, would you like to try? They didn’t understand me, one of them spoke  to me in English, twist it, she said. I handed her the ball and they didn’t succeed. It was getting dark outside. I thought it was a good idea to check that the train was indeed going to  Liege. I stood at the end of the corridor and got chatting in English to a man who looked stereotypically sleazy (leather jacket, gelled hair, gold necklace). He explained that we were in (Dutch-speaking)  Flanders, that the train had split a while ago and this part was not going to Liege. That gave some  explanation for why no-one could understand me, and also made me see that half of the Belgian  population cannot communicate with the other half. It’s as if the Welsh couldn’t understand the English.  Absolute madness. I asked Mr. Sleaze what he thought the best route was for me to get back to Liege. He said to get off at  the next stop, then he paused and said “but we can go get a drink, then I can drive you. It is nicer in a  car.” “No, no,” I replied. “Why you say no? You scared?” “Well, it is a bit dangerous don’t you think? I  mean I don’t know you.” I hopped off the train and Mr Sleaze said, “quick, quick, there is a train to Liege on platform three,” and  I ran and I caught it. It delivered me home safely.last_img read more

Solskjaer backs Caulker for Brazil

first_img And while Sascha Riether’s own goal gave the result a comfortable look, Cardiff did require their captain to be just as effective in front of David Marshall’s goal throughout the 90 minutes. “I just want him to focus on his performances here because if he plays this way defensively and he keeps chipping in with the odd goal he has got to be in with a shout,” Solskjaer said. “He is 22 years of age and he is a leader who is very talented, he has had a very testing season and when it comes to Cardiff he knows he will be fighting for survival and that is a big ask. “He could have had an easy life at Spurs probably, playing x amount of games but he has taken on a great test and is maturing all the time. “It is great to see him taking on a lot of the leadership roles because of Huds’ (Cardiff captain Mark Hudson) absence.” Despite this win lifting Cardiff level on points with 17th-placed West Brom, Solskjaer admits his side cannot relax and rest on their laurels. They currently sit on 25 points and the Bluebirds boss believes 12 points from their final nine games will be enough to cement survival. “That (37 points) is our aim and if we can get to that then we will be safe,” he said. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Cardiff captain Steven Caulker can gatecrash England’s World Cup squad after his two goals helped see of fellow strugglers Fulham. Their £8.5million signing from Tottenham last summer has not been capped by his country since making his debut against Sweden in 2012 and the 22-year-old was an unused substitute in midweek as the Three Lions saw off Denmark. But the centre-back rose to the occasion in a crucial 3-1 win, opening the scoring with a close-range finish before rising unmarked at the back post to regain Cardiff’s lead 22 minutes later. “A win like this, especially the way we did it with bouncing back, that was a great feeling. The response of the lads is what I take out of this game, they didn’t let their heads drop and created chances. “It was great to get it in such an important game but it is not about one result. If you get to the top of Mount Everest and relax then you’ll struggle. We have to build on this.” In stark contrast to the Norwegian’s buoyant mood Felix Magath admits confidence is low amongst his rock-bottom Fulham outfit who have not picked up three points since New Year’s Day – a run of eight games. Lewis Holtby’s close-range finish levelled the match just before the hour mark to give his side hope of taking at least a point from south Wales, but they held out for just eight minutes before Caulker’s second. And having received a frosty reception from their travelling supporters at the final whistle Mageth knows he faces a tough task to lift his squad for the visit of Newcastle. “The second goal breaks us,” he said. “If you come back into the game especially in an away game, and you score, then you are very eager to get more and the second goal came too early. After that we are not able to come back. “Our chances are worse than before. We have to win our home games, that is the most important thing. The next game is a home game against Newcastle and we need three points. “When you are in the situation when you are losing you have not enough confidence to take unfortunate situations as happened here.” Magath made four changes but two selections in particular raised eyebrows in the away end with Kostas Mitroglou thrown into the starting line-up for the first time since arriving from Greece for a club-record fee to partner untried teenage Cauley Woodrow on his Fulham debut. But the German rejected suggestions that handing a 19-year-old, whose last competitive action came during a loan spell at Southend in January, was a risk. “I see no gamble in it because he is a very talented player and I was satisfied with him,” the German said. “He did a lot of work for the team and I was very satisfied.” Press Associationlast_img read more
