Indiana Council Against Senior Exploitation Aims To Protect Vulnerable Hoosiers

first_imgStaff ReportTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Secretary of State Connie Lawson has partnered with other experts in fraud prevention to create IN-CASE, or the Indiana Council Against Senior Exploitation, to protect seniors against those who would exploit them.IN-CASE began four years ago when the senior medical patrol director of the Indiana Association of Area Agencies on Aging (IAAAA) began hosting networking groups of government agencies and organizations.These organizations aimed to serve older adults and educate them or their caregivers on how to prevent numerous types of fraud.It is estimated that elderly citizens in America lose up to $36.5 billion dollars each year due to financial exploitation, abuse, and scams.The number of older citizens in America is increasing rapidly, according to the Indiana Business Research Center with the IU Kelley School of Business. Chris Naylor with the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council believes that this creates a “growing marketplace for those who may be looking to take advantage of vulnerable adults.”Lawson said she wants to use IN-CASE as an opportunity to improve their efforts by teaming up with others who are equally committed to protecting the senior citizens in Indiana. IN-CASE’s overall goal is to prevent and end senior exploitation and abuse by educating, encouraging, and empowering their citizens.The Office of the Indiana Secretary of State and IAAAA are partnered with the Indiana FSSA Division of Aging, Office of the Indiana Attorney General, Better Business Bureau Serving Central Indiana, AARP Indiana, Indiana Legal Services, and other state, public, and private organizations.Upon the creation of IN-CASE, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has declared June 9-15 the Indiana Elder Abuse Awareness Week.

Cricket News Duanne Olivier wrecks Pakistan in Centurion, finishes with record tally for South Africa

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Centurion Test is proving to be a memorable affair for South Africa’s pacers. On day 1 of the Boxing Day Test, Dale Steyn created history by breaking Shaun Pollock’s record and becoming the leading wicket-taker for South Africa. However, the Test has belonged to 25-year-old right-arm pacer Duanne Olivier who showed his class to dismantle Pakistan for the second time in the match. After picking up 6/37 in the first innings, Olivier picked up 5/59 to finish with 11/96 in the match. In the process, Olivier created some records in Centurion and also for South Africa as Faf du Plessis’ side look to chase down 149 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.Olivier’s haul of 11/96 is the 10th best haul by a South Africa pacer in Tests. Makhaya Ntini leads the list with 13/132 against the West Indies in Port of Spain in 2005. Kagiso Rabada is next on the list with 13/144 against England in Centurion in 2016. Hugh Tayfield, the right-arm offbreak bowler who played in 37 Tests from 1949 to 1960, is the only Proteas pacer to pick 13 wickets twice. He had figures of 13/165 against Australia in Melbourne in 1952 while he picked 13/192 against England in Johannesburg in 1957. Sibley Snooke, Bert Vogler, Allan Donald and Keshav Maharaj are the other bowlers to have taken 12 wickets in a Test.Read More | Dale Steyn breaks Shaun Pollock’s record, becomes most successful South Africa pacerIn the first innings, Olivier’s consistent strikes had reduced Pakistan to 111/8 before Babar Azam stepped up and played an attacking knock of 71 to help Pakistan reach 181. South Africa managed to take a crucial 42-run lead but Pakistan started strongly in the second innings, reaching 103/2 with Shan Masood striking an attacking fifty. However, Olivier, along with Kagiso Rabada, ran through the lower-middle order as Sarfraz Ahmed’s side lost eight wickets for 87 runs to be bowled out for 190.Read More | Virat Kohli climbs ‘The Wall’, creates new record in Boxing Day TestOlivier’s haul of 11/96 is the third-best haul by a bowler in Centurion. Rabada holds the best figures at this ground with 13 wickets against England in 2016 while Australia’s Mitchell Johnson picked up 12/127 in 2014 in what was South Africa’s second loss in what is considered their fortress.The 25-year-old pacer made his debut in the series against Sri Lanka in Johannesburg in 2017 following the retirement of Kyle Abbott. The right-arm pacer made a decent start, picking up five wickets and was selected on the tour to England where he played in Trent Bridge and Manchester. However, he stuggled for impact in the two Tests against Bangladesh but has made a big statement as one of the future stars in the South Africa bowling line-up if they have to look at a future without Dale Steyn. last_img read more
