Surely, the fundamental right under Article 25 of the Constitution of India cannot be invoked for protecting an illegal structure of a temple which is on a footpath. The right to construct unauthorized temples and that also on a footpath cannot be said to be an essential part of any religion or religious practice which can be protected under Article 25 of the Constitution of India”.The Court was considering a writ petition highlighting the failure of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to demolish an unauthorized temple built on a footpath.Residents Welfare Association faces Court’s wrathA Residents Welfare Association(RWA), which intervened in the writ petition seeking to protect the temple, faced the wrath of the Court.The bench came down heavily on the RWA Members by saying : “The duty of the citizens is to see that no illegal structure and especially, illegal religious structure comes up in their locality. But they want to protect a temple which has come up on a footpath. If the intention of the applicants was really bona fide, long back, they could have applied for relocation of the temple from the footpath. But their intention appears to be to protect the illegality. We do not think that any god or religion will support an illegal religious structure which is on a footpath. A religious structure cannot become an obstacle on a footpath which is meant for walking.” It was argued by their counsel that the temple was established in 1854. Initially, the construction was not on a road or a footpath, but as the road was widened,it happened to be on the footpath, the RWA contended. Rejecting this argument, the bench said :”As can be seen from the photographs on record, the correctness of which is not disputed, the construction appears to be a new construction right on the footpath. Even assuming that such a construction is made prior to the cut-off date 29th September 2009 fixed by the Apex Court, the construction being on the footpath can never be protected especially, when no material is placed on record to show that the construction has been made after obtaining the permission of the competent authority.” Accordingly, the Court imposed a cost of Rs 25,000 on the members of a Residents Welfare Association. The cost was directed to be deposited the amount with the Chief Minister’s Covid-19, relief fund within six weeks. As regards to the authorities not taking action of demolition, the bench said “Considering the fact that the city is under lockdown, we are not passing any adverse order against BBMP as of today while we remind BBMP of its legal obligations.” The court has now posted the matter for further hearing on July 30.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]  Next Storylast_img read more

The Bench of Justice R. Hemalatha was hearing the petition seeking a direction to quash the First Information Report in Crime No.63 of 2020 of Boothapandy Police Station, Kanyakumari District. Facts in brief On 12th March 2020, when the Special Sub-Inspector of Police (2nd respondent), was on his routine rounds, he found the petitioner along with others was protesting against the amendments made to the Citizenship Laws. According to the complainant, namely, the Special Sub-Inspector of Police, Boothapandy Police Station, the petitioner and others by their act had not only committed public nuisance but also caused hindrance to the free flow of vehicular traffic on the road. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court noted that no untoward incident had taken place and the petitioner had organized the protest and the First Information Report did not disclose any act of violence. Further, the Court remarked, “It must be unequivocally emphasized that the Constitution of India gives its citizens the right to freedom of speech and expression, assemble peacefully and without arms, to form Associations and Unions and to move freely throughout the Territory of India under Article 19 (1) (a), (b), (c) and (d) of the Constitution of India.” Significantly, the Court also observed, “In the instant case, the protest was peaceful and as already observed no untoward incident took place.” In these circumstances, the First Information Report was quashed as against the petitioner and the Criminal Original Petition stood allowed. In related news, last year, while observing that the Petitioners had conducted peaceful demonstration/protest against the Amendment of CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) and NRC (National Register Citizenship), the Madras High Court had quashed the FIR filed against two CAA-NRC Protesters. The Bench of Justice J. Nisha Banu was hearing the petitions of Henri Tiphagne & Saathik Ali, who prayed before the Court to call for the entire records pertaining to the impugned First Information Report in Crime Number. 4 of 2020, and to quash the same as against the petitioners.

Nearly 80 per cent of employers introduce coaching skills initiatives toimprove overall company performance but only a minority of organisationsmeasure its effectiveness, research finds. The study for the School of Coaching (SoC) at the Industrial Society showsmore than 80 per cent of employers use coaching to improve individualperformance and a similar proportion introduce it to support the personaldevelopment of their staff. Six out of 10 companies coach top team members but less than a thirdevaluate how effective this training is and most don’t have a coachingstrategy. David Webster, managing director of SoC, believes it is irresponsible ofcompanies not to ask questions about the effectiveness and validity of theircoaching programmes, particularly at such a senior level. “Organisations using coaching are hoping to improve individual andcompany performance and support personal development. These are creditableobjectives but if there isn’t an evaluation structure in place for yourcoaching initiative, how do you know if it is generating success, stagnation oreven problems?” The survey of 179 HR managers also shows that developing coaching skillstends to be restricted to management. Nearly two-thirds of organisations, which currently have an initiative inplace aimed at developing coaching skills in their line managers, report thatthe scheme is aimed primarily at developing coaching skills in middle managers.Half of respondents reveal coaching initiatives are aimed at senior managersand a similar proportion have schemes aimed at junior managers/teamleaders/supervisors. Employers in the manufacturing sector spend the most on coaching peremployee, an average of £274, while service sector employers spend the least,averaging £164 per staff member. www.indsoc.co.ukBy Ross Wigham Benefits of coaching not being measuredOn 26 Mar 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

first_imgA review is presented of studies, including recent work by members of the British Antarctic Survey, on the primary productivity of plankton, ice-flora and benthos in both marine and freshwater habitats in the Antarctic. Those members of the flora so far studied have low compensation points enabling slow growth in low light intensities but otherwise show no apparent adaptation to temperatures around freezing point. Certain sea areas, mostly inshore, have dense standing crops with daily and annual productivities as high as those of productive areas elsewhere in the oceans but in the open Southern Ocean productivity seems generally low even although nutrient concentrations are high, probably because of excessive turbulence carrying plankton out of the photic zone. There is as yet insufficient data to show whether, as a whole, the photosynthetic efficiency of the Southern Ocean is greater or less than that of other sea areas. Antarctic algae liberate extracellular products of photosynthesis but there is no definite evidence that these are reassimilated to support growth when light intensities are low and it may be that this material, carried by currents, supports heterotrophic production in other parts of the ocean. Comparison of data for adjacent marine and freshwater systems shows that their rates of primary production are much the same but the marine phytoplankton shows characteristics of shade-adapted cells consistent with the greater turbulence to which it is exposed.last_img read more

first_imgIn order to conduct theoretical studies or modeling of pitch angle scattering of electrons by whistler mode chorus emission at Saturn, a knowledge of chorus occurrence and magnetic intensity levels, PB, as well as the distribution of PB relative to frequency and spatial parameters is essential. In this paper an extensive survey of whistler mode magnetic intensity levels at Saturn is carried out, and Gaussian fits of PB are performed. We fit the spectrum of wave magnetic intensity between the lower hybrid frequency and fceq/2, and for frequencies in the interval fceq/2 < f <0.9 fceq, where fceq is the cyclotron frequency mapped to the equator. Saturn chorus is observed over most local times, but is dominant on the nightside in the range 4.5 < L <7.5, with minimum power at the equator and peak power in the range 5° < λ <10°. Saturn wave magnetic intensity averaged in frequency bins peaks in the range 10-5 < PB <10-4 nT2 for 0.4 < β <0.5 (β = f/fceq). Gaussian fits of PB with frequency and latitude are obtained for lower band chorus. Plasma injection regions are occasionally encountered with significant chorus power levels. Upper band chorus is seen almost exclusively within plasma injection regions, and the number of events is very limited, but when present, the average levels of PB can be higher than lower band chorus. The overall magnetic intensity contribution of the upper band, however, is insignificant relative to the lower band.last_img read more

first_imgAsda’s senior category director for bakery has left after 15 years’ service. James Cawthorne has reportedly left to pursue interests outside the company. He joined the bakery team in a buying role in 2010, having started his career at Asda in the electrical department.Derek Lawlor, vice-president, fresh, said: “In that time he has been a valued colleague who worked across various food and general merchandise categories, becoming bakery category director in 2013.“Although I’m sorry to see James go, he has built a dedicated, passionate team and delivered key trading initiatives, which will see us fit to continue to deliver a market-leading bakery category.“I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank James for his contribution to Asda over the last 15 years. I am sure you will all join me in wishing James every success for the future as he embarks upon the next chapter of his career.”The departure of Cawthorne comes after a period of intense development of the American-owned superstores’ bakery offer. In recent years it has introduced photo cakes, Millie’s cookies concessions, Pick & Mix bakery and pancake hot plates.last_img read more

first_imgLater on, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats played a rousing set on the Mountain stage, followed by up-and-comers Houndmouth on the Valley stage.Perhaps the most anticipated act of the day, Beck was afforded an extra 30 minutes after Gary Clark’s cancellation.  With that in mind, the alternative rock superstar wasted no time, working the crowd to a frenzy with opening trio of “Devil’s Haircut,” “Black Tambourine,” and his 90s mega-hit “Loser.”  Beck is an unpredictable artist, and his live show reflects that, playing tracks from seven of his albums, jumping from the sample-heavy hip hop of “Qué Onda Güero” to the acoustic reflection of “Paper Tiger” from Sea Change, to the glitchy, game-boy remix of “Hell Yes” called “Ghettochip Malfunction.” Beck even dropped covers of Prince‘s “1999” and “Raspberry Beret”, and Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean.”With the extra time he was afforded, Beck decided to play a few extra tunes from his Grammy-winning album Morning Phase, playing album single “Blue Moon” and the harmonic “Say Goodbye.” The legendary songwriter closed his set with the amazing combo of “Sexx Laws” and “E-Pro,” with a lone encore of his biggest song, “Where It’s At.”Check out photos from Saturday at Mountain Jam below, courtesy of photographer Patrick Hughes and his Faces Of Festivals! Load remaining images Mountain Jam carried on yesterday with sunshine and laid-back vibes nestled in the quaint ski town of Hunter Mountain, New York. An early daytime set from fast-rising funk/soul outfit Con Brio kicked things off on a high note, getting everyone dancing and into the groove, fueled by frontman Ziek McCarter’s powerful pipes and James Brown-esque stage presence. Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, always a fun daytime party, took the stage shortly after to keep the energy high and get the crowd going.Nearby, a screening of Lettuce’s documentary Let Us Play took place in Healy Hall, followed by an engaging Q & A with the band and producer/L4LM Founder Kunj Shah. Lettuce would later take the stage twice, making it funky for an early evening set on the Valley Stage, followed by an indoor late night rager that closed the evening’s festivities.In the meantime, Warren Haynes stepped up to playe a last minute solo set, replacing Gary Clark Jr. after he was forced to cancel his set due to a family emergency. Warren played a varied setlist, digging into his catalog to play songs such as “Spots of Time” from his Ashes & Dust record, “Old Friend,” blues standard “It Hurts Me Too,” “Patchwork Quilt,” and a cover of U2‘s “One.”last_img read more

first_imgThe following is a guest post from Greg Caplan.Remote Year originated from my desire to work and travel the world. After a couple years in the workforce, I was tired of the 9 to 5 grind and longed for something more, but didn’t want to stop earning an income. I reached out to a couple friends to see if they would travel with me for a year, but they refused to leave their jobs or homes behind. In an effort to find a community to travel with, I setup a website asking “who wants to travel together for a year while working remotely?”50,000 people raised their hands.From there, Remote Year was born and grew into a million dollar startup, receiving $12 million in series A funding, developing 20 unique programs and sending workers on life-transforming journeys around the world. We coordinate trips for groups of 60 people to live in 12 different cities a year while keeping their jobs and working remotely.According to our recent survey with C and CO, 55 percent of remote workers telecommute full-time. People are entering remote work in droves as new communication technologies evolve to enable employees to seamlessly exchange data regardless of geographic constraints. The traditional “office” culture has changed tremendously because of disruptive technology and companies like WeWork that provide an office environment for anyone at any time. Our partnership with WeWork allows us to have great office space whenever we need it wherever we are. Program members have unlimited access to WeWork locations while traveling on the program.Remote work became an explosive trend in 2014 and I faced many challenges and growing pains when starting my company to meet the large demand for community-oriented travel and remote work. Employers are embracing this trend and are implementing programs to allow employees to work where they are most productive, and this is only accelerating. Developing a fast-growing company was no easy venture. To keep my employees happy and well connected despite working across the world from one another, I started utilizing platforms such as Slack and Zoom to keep the business running and communication lines open. Slack is our main productivity and collaboration tool that we use to chat with one another, which dramatically lightens our email inbox and streamlines one-off questions and daily communications. We conduct all of our conference calls on Zoom, which offers remote conferencing services using cloud computing.As the business expanded, I had to figure out which tools, products, software and technology to utilize for the business. My Dell Small Business advisor taught me how to protect my data through solutions such as VPNs and cloud storage, and how to invest in technology that meets my current business demands and also takes future growth into consideration. One must pack lightly to uproot and travel constantly, so my advisor helped me pick out my Latitude 2-in-1 that was mobile and versatile, while also meeting my personal and professional needs.After years of running a company remotely that purely supports other remote workers, I’ve learned to adapt constantly. Participating in a year of traveling presents unique challenges and circumstances to our group members and RY employees. Participants must continually adjust to new environments and depend on digital communication and technology to conduct their day-to-day work. Technology is extremely important to achieve the best of both worlds in this program, but it’s also constantly changing, so we must keep up to successfully do what we do.I struggled with operating a company that was scaling; however, Dell Small Business became an extension of my team. It helped improve our technical efficiencies and supported me with any IT question I had – big or small.I never thought I would be in the place I am now – running my own company, enjoying the work I do and traveling the world – all while sharing it with a like-minded community. I am excited to continue to grow the company and provide others the opportunity to broaden their horizons and experience the life-altering moments that come with seeing the world._____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Greg Caplan, Founder and CEO of Remote Year.Remote Year brings together groups of inspiring professionals to travel, live, and work remotely in different cities around the world for a year or four months.

first_img from $149.00 Hamilton Related Shows Andrew Rannellscenter_img View Comments Hear ye, hear ye! Performers are not perfect—even those taking on roles in the record-breaking smash Hamilton. Andrew Rannells recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon fresh off of announcing the 2016 Tony nominations. Naturally, late night king Fallon asked the actor about his stint in the gargantuan hit as King George, and Rannells revealed blanking on the lyrics to “You’ll Be Back.” “It’s a great part, but I was nervous obviously to be dropped into the show. It’s a huge hit,” Rannells said. “I did fine the first four shows and then the fifth show I walked out there like ‘You say’ and then nothing. I used to make fun of Josh Gad so hard when we were doing The Book of Mormon cause he would forget stuff.” So how did the soon-to-be Falsettos star recover?
