Justice Raina also criticized the practice of attaching marriage photographs with such petitions. “Photographs are not proof of marriage neither is a Court concerned with the marriage in this jurisdiction. The Court is only concerned about the identity of the petitioners in these cases which can be traced back,” he said. “For these there are Aadhar cards and other official photo identification and passport size photographs of both etc. would be sufficient compliance which are to be placed on record duly authenticated by the petitioners,” the court added. Justice Raina observed that processing of these photos was actually a “big burden” on the High Court and drained the resources of its Registry from the filing stage to uploading the order. “Time has come to trim them to the basic demands of pleadings,” he thus remarked while directing the HC Registry to stop entertaining any annexures containing photographs of couples as evidence or proof of marriage and demand an affidavit of necessity, explaining the purpose they are important to the prayer, from the counsel [but not the petitioners] because lawyers advice clients of steps to be taken for presentation of petitions.

On January 30th, I rolled out of bed in Farmville, Va. and thought to myself, “Are you ready to spend all day in RVA?”A smile leapt to my lips. This was going to be a fun day in Richmond, Va.First up was the 2nd Annual Shiver In The River from 10am-3pm. It’s touted as RVA’s Coolest Winter Festival and raises funds for Keep Virginia Beautiful, which does great work through organized clean ups of our great state, along with other outreach programs. The festival features a Clean Up campaign, a 5K race, and then culminates with a chilly Jump in the James River. Participates who wanted to Shiver In The River have to fund raise at least $75 for the honor. I’d pieced together $155 and was ready to go!Second up was the Coastals : Boats and Brews Film Fest, at 5:30pm, organized by Coastal Canoeists to raise funds for the James River Park System. The film fest is held at Hardywood Park Brewery and brings together Richmond’s paddling community for a fun night of beverages, food, and good films.That morning I lit out of Farmville later than I wanted and got into Richmond about 11:15 am. I walked down to Tredgar’s Iron Works and picked up my race packet and fundraising goodies, then hustled to get ready for the 5K race. I’ve been training for the Holiday Lake 50K, in February, for about 6 weeks. So I’d been running, but speed has not been a top priority. I was a little apprehensive. Plus, I hadn’t toed the line at a race in years. The last time I’d run in a crowd was April 2015, when I ran 50 miles, off the couch, in a 24 hour Cancer Run. It took my legs 7 months to recover from that. I spent the rest of 2015 focused on kayak fishing. But I determined that 2016 would be different. This year I would run more.Three hundred Shiver In The River runners and walkers lined up at 12 pm, ready for a 5K. The course looped through Brown’s Island, across the pedestrian bridge, across Belle Isle and then back across the bridge to the start. The race organizers warned us that mile 2, around Belle Isle was full of ice. The word “treacherous” got thrown around several times. I slid into the middle of the pack, knowing I was still out of shape. When the race began I instantly regretted my choice. I began weaving, trying to gain open ground, in as gracious a manner as I could. I crashed into a camera man tucked into the crowd within that first .5 miles. When we hit Brown’s Island it opened up and I was able to accelerate. But after crossing the pedestrian bridge, any speed was quickly shut down by the ice. Most of mile 2 was indeed a bit treacherous. But it was my second pass on the bridge that surprised me. When I hit it on the way back, I felt this queasy sensation. My head got extremely dizzy and I almost fell out. I thought something was wrong with me before realizing that the weight of all the runners and walkers crossing the bridge was causing it to sway. None of this seemed to bother the 18 year old kid who clocked 17:31 on his way to victory. Ultimately I finished 32nd overall, and 3rd in my age group. No blistering pace. No award worthy place. But I had a lot of fun, and it felt good to run.Following the 5K, people started to show up, ready to spectate the jump in the James River. I ran into Ryan Corrigan from James River Association, and his wife Mackenzie, down at the ramp and playfully said that I was no longer as excited to jump in. But I was. So was everyone else. Shiver In The River was on!As the countdown to splash down wound down, I heard Mike Baum, of Keep America Beautiful, come over the megaphone, “Please don’t die.”And with that we all plunged in. The shock was real. The water temp was 36 degrees. It was cold. But I couldn’t shake the silly grin from my face as I Ric Flair’ed my way deeper into the water. Wooooo!By all accounts, the Shiver In The River was a huge success in it’s second year. 400+ signed up for the Clean Up at 10am, , 300+ signed up to race the 5K at 12pm, and 200+ made the pledge to jump in the river at 1:30pm.Afterwards the crowd hung out at Tredgar’s and enjoyed music, beverages and food trucks into the afternoon. At this time Shiver In The River looks to have raised over $55,000 for Keep Virginia Beautiful, and while that money will go a long way, it was the smiles in the crowd that seemed to win the day. Good show RVA, I’ll be back to Shiver In The River for sure!In between events, I hit Alamo BBQ and Blue Bee Cidery. These are two of my favorite places in RVA, and must stops anytime I’m in town. The ‘que and the cider are exceptional. Next stop was Hardywood Brewery for Coastal Canoeists Boats and Brews Film Fest. The proceeds from this event go to the local James River Park System, which provides many with an outstanding recreational sanctuary on the doorstep of Richmond’s urban awesomeness. Inside the tasting room, RVA paddlers gathered. The atmosphere was warm with psyche and good vibes. A couple of vendors were on site including our friends from ACA Virginia.There was a small screen in the side room with some tables, and a large screening area back with the beer barrels. Cooper Sallade, local Dagger Kayak Pro, and Ben Moore, local BIC SUP Pro, co-emceed the event and kept everyone engaged between film showings. A crowd favorite, and what I thought was the best film, came from Richmond’s own Tijo Media. It featured the hometown James River in all of it’s seasons, and showed what a glorious resource it is for recreation and meditation. The James River is the vein that pumps life’s blood into Richmond.Once again, I enjoyed hanging with the RVA paddling community. It is a spirited family, intent on celebrating and protecting the resources that feed their passion. Many of the films focused on that idea. It led me to ruminate on why paddlers, hikers, climbers, etc seem so keen to grab the podium and preach about the places we love.While scientists will give you detailed explanations about the consequences of our actions in relation to our environment, it is the outdoor enthusiast who often times fervently preaches the gospel of keeping that environment clean and all with their dogmatic believe in the therapeutic benefits of recreating in a clean and beautiful outdoor playground. It is that simple idea of play that drives it. We love to play. We love to play outside in beautiful places.These two events, Shiver In The River and Boats & Brews Film Fest, exemplify that passion.I often come to Virginia’s capital for a dose of city culture and to scratch my foodie itch, but this time, I took part in celebrating the abundant outdoor opportunity in Richmond. All day in RVA is darn good either way. Plus I got to race again. See ya out there![divider]related content[/divider]

BYOD in the workplace is becoming the norm, and the risk of data taken outside the workplace is increasing. And MDM is no longer a nice-to-have, but increasingly becoming a necessity. Having MDM in place also ensure there is no gray are in your credit union’s use policy, especially since employers and employees have different expectations on the type of restrictions that should be applied to mobile devices.Here are the top 3 reasons we love mobile device management, and why we believe your credit union should embrace it as well:Remote Wipe: Hands down our favorite and most important feature. Remote wipe is a security feature that allows your network administrator or device owner to send a remote command to a the mobile device and delete that data. A remote wipe can delete data in selected folders, repeatedly overwrite stored data to prevent forensic recovery, return the device to factory settings or remove all programming on the device, essentially turning it into a brick. continue reading »

Share by StevenLast night New York voted to legalize same-sex marriage and thirty days from now you may find yourself receiving an invitation to your son and his fiance’s wedding or to the nuptials of two lesbians, whether friends or co-workers. Like many others – straight and gay — you’ll realize that you’re now entering an unmapped twilight zone since many of the “rules” for same-sex weddings have yet to be determined.Not surprisingly, there are gay couples who find that old-school, straight wedding traditions serve them remarkably well in their ceremonies and celebrations: formal invitations, engagement parties, gift registries, and frothy white dresses alongside or well-tailored black tuxedos. Except that “We’ll take two, please!”Still, for many in the gay community, a very strong spirit of invention is at play as we create new roles and rites, not only for ourselves, but for all those in attendance. The good news is that it’s up to each couple to make these choices, which will no doubt become the foundation of LGBT wedding traditions to come.With that in mind, here’s what we all need to know about same-sex weddings.Do gay people get engaged? Yes; some of us even get down on bended knee, present a ring, and ask “Will you marry me?” That is, of course, after finding a gay-friendly jeweler who doesn’t keep asking about your opposite-sex fiancé. Who pays for the rings? If there’s one prevailing custom today, it’s that lesbian and gay couples shop together for their rings, and pay for them together. However, if you’re planning to surprise your sweetheart with an engagement, then it’s on you. Of course, you don’t need a ring to show your commitment. Maybe it’s time for a new puppy.Do gays need a pre-nup? Maybe – especially if one or both of you has significant assets. After all, legal spouses take on new responsibilities along with those new rights. If you go this route, speak to a lawyer, don’t wait until the last minute, and don’t pull out an agreement the first time you raise the topic.What’s in a name? Using the same name affirms a connection between all the individuals in a family, and more and more gay couples are changing theirs when they marry. For example, a recent wedding announcement of two lesbians noted: “The couple is using the surname Epstein.” Of course, others keep their original family names, become hyphenates, or create a brand new name.What do we call each other? It’s easy for a married straight couple – husband, wife, and spouse cover all the options. Not so easy – or fast – for committed gay couples, who may use partner, spouse, significant other, lover, and (now) husband or wife. Use what feels right – just be sure to let others know how to refer to you. And if you’re a friend or relative and are unsure, ask the happy couple how to introduce them Who pays? The cost of equality is high – the average wedding rings in at about $25,000 these days — so you’ll need to figure out how to pay. More often than not, gay couples foot the cost of their weddings and receptions themselves, although some of us may benefit from family “financing.” Tread gently if you’re hitting up your folks, who may have saved money for a daughter’s wedding and never considered their gay son’s. Sometimes, it’s about the economy and not anti-gay bias.What about Mom and Dad? Parents and siblings may find that they play a lesser role than they might have in a straight wedding. That may be about who’s paying, but it could be that lifelong friends are assigned the roles traditionally played by family members.What about the unsupportive ones? The most effective thing you can do is talk directly with any disapproving family members about your love for each other, the commitment you’re making, and why marriage matters. But in the end, if you’re not feeling the love, save that seat for someone who can stand up for you. As for prospective guests, I like to think that family and friendship trump politics: If you don’t think you can keep your quiet, or that you’d be a hypocrite, decline the invitation.What do two brides or two grooms wear? This depends more on the formality of the event than anyone’s sexual orientation. It’s not important that the couple be dressed like the Doublemint twins — in matching tuxes, gowns or even Steelers jerseys — but you do want to look as though you were a couple at the same event rather than two strangers who happened to step in front of the camera at the same time. There will be pictures and witnesses!Do we have to get married? Absolutely not. This legislation is about the right or freedom to marry, which is to say equality. And by the way, it’s about civil marriage; churches in New York State are exempt from the provisions of this new law.
