The Administration of Justice Act 1970 is a UK Act of Parliament. Section 11 reforms the Debtors Act 1869 by further restricting the circumstances in which debtors may be sent to prison. Section 40 includes a number of provisions forbidding creditors such as debt collection agencies from harassing debtors, including: Excessive demands for payment Falsely claiming that criminal proceedings will follow after failing to pay a debt Falsely pretending to be authorised to collect payment Producing false documents claiming to have some official status that they do not haveSection 36 was enacted to return the law to the position which it was thought to be, applied by the courts since the mid 1930s, before the landmark bar to adjournments applied by the courts since 1962 in the decision of Birmingham Citizens Permanent Building Society v Caunt which had put an end to a practice under which mortgage possession summonses were adjourned to give the mortgagor an opportunity to pay by instalments, it had intended to restore the position to what it had been thought to be.

The section did not however cover those mortgages excluding section 103 of the Law of Property Act 1925.

Keneth Alden Simons

Keneth Alden Simons was an American electrical engineer best known for his pioneering contributions to the technical development of cable television in the United States, for the most part as chief engineer for the Jerrold Electronics Corporation. Jerrold was one of the first manufacturers of cable television equipment and constructed entire cable systems. Simons designed one of the first converters and the two most important pieces of the early test equipment, the Model 704 Field Strength Meter and Model 900 Sweep Frequency Generator, he authored a seminal technical handbook on cable television systems, served on national and international engineering standards committees. Fellow cable engineer Archer Taylor stated that Simons was seen as the leading technical expert at Jerrold for over two decades. Born in Philadelphia, Simons' interest in radio began at an early age, he obtained his amateur radio license in 1930. Simons started his career as a radio troubleshooter for RCA in 1932 in Camden, worked for RCA while he attended college.

In 1938 he graduated from the Moore School of Electrical Engineering of the University of Pennsylvania,with distinction and recipient of the A. Atwater Kent Prize in Electrical Engineering] He became a television field engineer for RCA. On one occasion in 1939 he and another field engineer installed a television set in the honeymoon cottage of movie stars Robert Taylor and Barbara Stanwyck, Simons showed her how to operate it. Simons helped run the RCA television exhibit on YouTube at the 1939 World’s Fair. In the summer of 1940 he was sent by RCA to run the public address system and make recordings of speeches on the campaign train of Wendell Willkie, the Republican candidate for president that year. In 1941 he was a radio engineer for WCAU in Philadelphia. From 1942 until 1946 he was the chief instructor for the RCA Signal Corps School. Along with teaching operation and repair of various devices, he wrote instruction manuals on oscilloscope use and synchronous motors, he moved to Kansas City, Missouri, in 1946 and was the chief television instructor at Central Radio School until 1948.

Simons worked for Sylvania for about a year developing television tuners and an indoor antenna. In 1952 he formed a partnership to manufacture direct-coupled oscilloscopes. Due to lack of funding, they were not produced. Simons began at Jerrold Electronics Corporation as a part-time consulting engineer in 1951, his first project was to design a high-to-low frequency converter. He and other Jerrold engineers worked out of Simons' personal laboratory located on the second floor of a stained glass factory in Bryn Athyn, Pa. until a new Jerrold lab was built in Hatboro, Pa. in 1955. Simons characterized his role at Jerrold in his resume: "Three of us were responsible for equipment design in the early years. Donald Kirk was talented in coming up with new ideas, my contribution was in getting a system to work, Henry Arbeiter took all the bright ideas and made them producible." Other engineering colleagues included Eric Winston, Mike Jeffers, Frank Ragone, Caywood Cooley, Vic Nicholson, Len Ecker, Bill Felsher.

Simons successively became chief engineer, chief test equipment engineer, vice president and director of advanced development. Some of his noteworthy designs include the Model 704B Field Strength Meter. In a technology area based on rapid and constant change, the 704B was of note in being in production and use for more than 20 years The 704 name is honored today in a fraternal organization of its users The Loyal Order of the 704, commemorating the meter’s defining role in cable development. Simons designed its successor, the Model 727 Field Strength Meter. Simons held 13 US and foreign patents, published four books, one of, translated into Spanish, and 37 articles in engineering publications. His well-regarded Technical Handbook for CATV Systems went through 4 editions from 1965 to 1985. Simons served on two technical committees of the International Electrotechnical Commission, part of the International Organization for Standardization, beginning in 1969, he was a life member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a member of the Society of Cable Television Engineers, a Fellow of the British Society of Cable Engineers.

As part of the International Geophysical Year, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory set up a national network of amateur-run observation stations to track the early Russian artificial satellites, Sputniks I and II, Operation Moonwatch. As a member of his local Moonwatch group Moonwatch group, he made use of a unique radio-based Doppler tracking system he designed to enhance the accuracy of his team’s sightings. Simons retired from Jerrold in 1976, he served as a consultant for a number of cable industry manufacturers until 1989, for the University of Pennsylvania beginning in 1990. In February 1992, Simons was interviewed by Archer Taylor covering a broad range of topics from his life in cable television; the Audio and Transcript of the interview are now archived in the oral histories maintained by The Cable Center. Simons had patented a directional coupler, U. S. Patent 3,048,798, filed December 24, 1959, that had defined this key component for cable-based distribution of television. Now, 35 years he designed another coupler unit, U.

Sharon Pollock

Sharon Pollock, is a Canadian playwright, director, who lives in Calgary, Alberta. She has been Artistic Director of Theatre Calgary, Theatre New Brunswick and Performance Kitchen & The Garry Theatre, the latter which she herself founded in 1992. In 2007, she was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Pollock is one of Canada's most notable playwrights, is a major part of the development of what is known today as Canadian Theatre. Mary Sharon Chalmers was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick on 19 April 1936, to Eloise and George Everett Chalmers. Eloise had been a nurse prior to marrying a prominent local physician. Sharon was raised in a family and time when appearances and family ties were important. Sharon had a younger brother, Peter Chalmers, born 19 October 1937; when Sharon was younger her parents took her and her brother on trips, including to Banff and through the U. S, she had exposure to large scale American musical theatre as the family traveled to New York, where she saw popular musicals such as Annie Get Your Gun, South Pacific, Oklahoma!

As a child, Pollock was not interested in academics, but enjoyed reading, at a young age developed a passion for history. She attended Charlotte Street Primary School and, for grade 10, Fredericton High School, where she was the president of the Drama Club; when she was in grade ten, she and a friend skipped school for three weeks straight to sneak into the local cinema and watch movies. When they were caught, Pollock's father sent her to King's Hall, an Anglican private school, because he believed that if she could skip school for three weeks and still get good grades there was no way her schooling was challenging enough. At this young age Pollock and the same friend, Jane Hickman, created "The Secret Two Club", for they both shared the desire to be writers, instead of housewives or teachers like the women around them; as well as her interest in drama and writing, Pollock was involved in the sports teams at King's Hall and was editor of the school magazine. In Pollock's teenage years her family began to fall apart.

Her mother felt stifled in the role of housewife and was worn down by her husband's constant unfaithfulness. Eloise Chalmers committed suicide in 1954, when Pollock was 18; the same year, Pollock enrolled in the general arts program at the University of New Brunswick, where she was an active member of the Drama Society. She met her future husband, Ross Pollock, at UNB where he was in his fifth year of the environmental forestry program; the young couple eloped, by 1956 they had their first child, Jennifer. In the same year they moved to Toronto. During this time, the couple had four more children, Melinda and Michele. Pollock joined a theatre group in Toronto, she refers to this directing stint as "the blind leading the blind". Ross abused his wife; this attempt at murder was unsuccessful. In 1964, after another violent physical attack by her husband, Pollock left Ross and returned to Fredericton with her five children, she hoped to be with her family. Her father had two more children with his new wife.

When Pollock returned to Fredericton, she arrived just in time for the new Beaverbrook Playhouse to open. She found a job running the Playhouse Box Office. At the Playhouse, along with some of the members from the UNB Drama Society, formed "The Company of Ten", which performed six shows in the 1964–65 season dissolved the following year. During this time Pollock began dating fellow actor Michael Ball. Victor Mitchell had been starting up a Drama Department at the University of Calgary and offered Ball a position starting in January 1966. Pollock followed Ball west, hoping that this move across Canada would allow her and her children the opportunity to start fresh, to leave the emotional baggage of her family behind her; the 1960s were a booming time in Canadian theatre. There were regional festivals popping up all over the country. After their move to Calgary and Ball began touring with Mitchell's theatre group The Prairie Players, they traveled around small towns in Alberta performing in any space.

If they were lucky, the troupe earned $35 a week. Shortly after, in 1967, Pollock joined the MAC 14 Theatre Society, the merge of The Musicians and Actors Club of Calgary and a theatre group called Workshop 14; the MAC 14 club was the founding company of Theatre Calgary. In this same year, Pollock's sixth child, was born to Pollock and Ball; the 60s and early 70s were not easy for her family. They lived in acceptable living conditions, on an scarce income. In about 1967–68 Pollock began writing plays. After having the opportunity to experience life as an actress, she wanted to see what it was like to be on the writing and production side of theatre, her main motivation to write instead of perform was the lack of Canadian playwrights. In expressing her determination to write Canadian plays, she says, "I wanted other actors to stand up and say my words, to speak directly through an experience I shared with those other Albertans and Canadians." Pollock was becoming frustrated with how as an actor she felt her voice was heard.

She longed to hear a Canadian voice on stage. The way theatre was in th
