first_img Subscribe Altadena’s Metropolitan Baptist Church hosts its annual Down Home Gospel Concert Sunday to ring in the holiday season and to bring the community together through gospel music.The concert will feature prominent area gospel musical performers and an afternoon of fun, unity and joyful singing open to all.“What we’re trying to do is extend gospel music during this period of joy and adoration leading up to Thanksgiving,” said Metropolitan Baptist Church Deacon Joe Brown.The concert is dedicated to the memory of a local Pasadena gospel artist named Keith Williams who passed away earlier this year. Williams was originally from New York and sang for a variety of professional gospel groups throughout his lifetime, according to Brown.“The spirit and intent of this event is to lift up our community for anybody and everybody and that’s who we want to see come in —  not just one ethnic group — but everybody,” said Brown.Brown described the significance of gospel music as being the heritage of the South, specifically in African-American culture. He explained that the unique style of blending voices, without music equipment to aid, is special and unlike any other form of music that exists today.“People will get a chance to understand some of the historical heritage of gospel music and how it is sung,” said Brown.The event features both acclaimed recording artists and local groups hand-picked to perform by Brown that include Men of FAME Pasadena, New Hope Baptist Church Male Choir (San Bernardino), Metropolitan Baptist Church Male Choir, Morning Star BC Men, Acclaimed Artist Rev. Michael Larry & Gospel Soul Touchers, God’s Elect KEISO & Church Boys, according to a press release.“Gospel music has a flavor to it that makes it hard for you to sit down. It doesn’t matter who you are — it’s electric and lots of fun,” said Brown.Brown expects over 600 attendees to participate in the fun. The ceremony will also feature a special recognition to Brother Eddie Fulton (Eddie’s Gospel Hour), and Deacon Osephine Washington (Gospel Revelators).Master of ceremonies is KALI 900 am Radio Hose Rev. Walter Radford.“It’s going to be electric, it’s going to be moving and for those who have never grown up in the gospel environment, you will never forget this experience,” said Brown.The Down Home Gospel Concert In Memory of Keith Williams begins at 4:00 p.m. at Metropolitan Baptist Church located at 2283 N Fair Oaks Ave, Altadena.For more information, visit or call (626) 798-8611.

The Bench of Justice Anuja Prabhudessa ruled thus while directing railways to pay ₹8 lakh as compensation to one Munnibai Chaube whose son died due to the injuries sustained in accidental fall from a running train. Facts of the Case Appellant’s son Vikki was travelling from Nagpur to Tumsar Road by Howrah-Janeshwari Express and allegedly fell down from the running train. He was taken to KTS Hospital, where he was declared dead. The appellant (Munnibai Chaube) filed an application under Section 23 of the Railway Claims Tribunal Act, for compensation on account of death of her son in “untoward incident”. [NOTE: As per Section 123 (c) of The Railway Act, 1989, “untoward incident” includes the accidental falling of any passenger from a train carrying passengers.] Tribunal’s Order The claim of the appellant was contested by the respondent-UOI on the ground that no such “untoward incident” had occurred resulting in the death of her son and the respondent further claimed that the deceased was not a bona fide passenger. While recording a finding that the death of deceased had occurred in an “untoward incident”, the Tribunal dismissed the claim mainly on the ground that the said ticket was not a valid journey ticket for Howrah-Janeshwari Express. The matter before the Court The appellant (Munnibai Chaube) challenged the judgment and award, dated 17th January 2017, whereby the Railway Claims Tribunal dismissed his claim application. Assailing the said judgment, the appellant contended that the Tribunal was required to consider, whether deceased Vikki had lost his life as a result of “untoward incident” and whether the Railway Administration had proved and established exception or exceptions available under Section 124A of the Railways Act. He contended that the Tribunal was not justified in dismissing the petition only because the deceased had boarded a wrong train. Court’s Observations Observing that the victim Vikki had admittedly purchased a train ticket for travel from Nagpur to Tumsar Road and had boarded a wrong train, the Court said, “He cannot be branded as an unauthorized passenger merely because he had mistakenly boarded a wrong train. The death of the said passenger was due to the injuries sustained in accidental fall from a running train.” The Court further said, “Accordingly, the death was an “untoward incident” and was not covered by proviso to Section 124-A of the Railways Act. The Tribunal was, therefore, not justified in rejecting the claim solely on the ground that the victim had boarded a wrong train.” Lastly, the Court said since the appellant had discharged the initial burden of proving that Vikki was a bona fide passenger and that his death was an “untoward incident”, the respondent cannot be absolved of their liability of paying the compensation to the dependents of the deceased. Thus, it was directed that Union of India would deposit a sum of Rs.8,00,000T in the account of the claimant-appellant after verifying the identity within a period of three months. Related News It may be noted that Apex Court, in the case of Union of India vs. Anuradha & another (2014 ACJ 856), had held that, “If a passenger unguided by railway security personnel, ticket checkers or in absence of the regular announcements mistakenly boards a wrong train halting on the platform, may on realizing his mistake fall off the train due to panicky situation or otherwise accidentally, the railway administration cannot feign ignorance about the untoward incident in such case in order to shirk away from its strict liability to compensate monetarily for the untoward fatal accidents” Last year, the Bombay High Court had allowed an appeal against the order of the Railway Claims Tribunal, Nagpur and had directed Central railways to pay Rs.8 lakh as compensation to the family of one Arjun Gawande who died while alighting from a train at Badnera station. Justice MG Giratkar of the Nagpur bench had held that even though the deceased boarded the wrong train which did not have a stoppage at Badnera station, the Tribunal’s finding that the deceased responsible for his own death was not sustainable.

first_img Harry Kane will represent England at the U21 European Championship England goalkeeper Joe Hart says he “absolutely loved” his experience with the England U21s and talked up the benefits of playing tournament football.Gareth Southgate this week named his squad for the 2015 European Championship, with Tottenham’s young striker Harry Kane among the party.However, Spurs are believed to have reservations about the 21-year-old travelling with England following a long season, but Hart said only good things can come from playing for the Young Lions.“There’s loads of benefits in playing tournament football,” he told talkSPORT.“It’s a high level of football playing against players who may not be well known now, but in years to come will be the main stars in world football.“It’s a good tournament to be involved in and if you’re not quite in the England squad then this is the step to [being a member of the first team].”Hart played 21 times for the U21s and was a member of the England squad that reached the final of the 2009 U21 European Championship.England lost 4-0 to a Germany side containing Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil and Mats Hummels, though Hart was suspended for the final.“I absolutely loved [playing for the U21s] and loved every game and tournament I was involved in.” he said.“We had a really good relationship as a team and I really enjoyed working under Stuart Pearce.”“I’ll be looking forward to seeing how they do this summer.”Asked if there are any negatives to playing for the U21s off the back of a busy Premier League season, Hart, now with 50 senior caps to his name, explained that it never had any detrimental effects on his football career.“I can only go by personal experience, but that’s me and I can’t talk for other people.“It never effected what I was doing and it was something I very much looked forward to.”Joe Hart relies on the UK’s no.1 shampoo Head & Shoulders to feel prepared and confident for the game ahead.
