The bench was hearing a petition wherein the Court had taken suo moto cognizance for monitoring the progress of pending criminal cases against state MPs and MLAs in the trial courts and High Court for ensuring full compliance of the directions of the Apex Court in as provided in Ashiwini Kumar Upadhyay & Ors. v. Union of India (2020). BACKGROUND OF THE SUO MOTO PETITION The High Court vide order dated 01.12.2020 had registered a suo moto writ petition in view of the directions given in the orders passed by the Supreme Court in Ashiwini Kumar Upadhyay case wherein the Court observed that each high court must assign pending criminal cases against MPs and MLAs to sessions and magisterial courts so as to expedite their disposal. Pursuant to the directions of the Apex Court, the matter was placed before the Criminal Rules Committee, which is an advisory arm to the Supreme Court, a three member committee, wherein a report was submitted on 05.10.2020. in furtherance of the same, the Supreme Court vide order dated 06.10.2020 directed that: “After perusing the materials placed on record, we are of the opinion that further information from the High Courts is required to provide more with respect to the number of Special Courts required for expeditious disposal of pending criminal cases against sitting or former legislators (MPs and MLAs). With an objective of collating uniform data, we have annexed a tentative format along with this order. The High Courts are directed to furnish details according to the annexed format by 19.10.2020, with the liberty to provide additional information if necessary, to the Secretary General of this Court.” ORDER DATED 01.12.2020 In compliance of the directions, the High Court of Madras prepared data in the prescribed format describing the numbers of pending criminal cases against the legislators and came to a conclusion that a total of 107 cases were pending before the High Court alone (91 before the Principal Seat at Madras and 16 before the Bench of Madurai). Therefore, looking at the gravity of the situation, the High Court vide order dated 01.12.2020 issued the following directions: That the pending cases must be listed on top priority.That at least 10 cases must be heard every day on rotation basis. That the Registrar of the Court is directed to report the progress of the outcomes of listing on the next date of hearing i.e. 05.01.2021.That the Registrar is also directed to issue a copy of the order to all subordinate courts and ensure the compliance of the directions issued by the Supreme Court.That the subordinate courts shall fix these cases on priority and report the progress to Registrar General to be placed before the High Court. OBSERVATION OF THE COURT The Bench while noting the importance and seriousness of the matter observed that the Court will not tolerate the unnecessary pendency of the case pending against legislators and that every attempt will be made by the High Court to ensure that such cases are disposed of at earliest. “A comprehensive road-map ought to be chartered out, taking into account the litigative resourcefulness of the legislators and the affinity to delay the trials so as to ensure the early disposal of the criminal cases in accordance with law.” The bench ordered. The bench also directed that the report prepared by the High Court on the pendency of such cases to be immediately forwarded to the office of Advocate General of the State. The bench also directed that the Additional Solicitor General of India must be served with the copies of reports and orders of the High Court when he appears on the next date of hearing. “The State has been requested to augment the judiciary’s resources, if necessary, for immediate effective steps being taken for the early disposal of matters pending against past and present legislators.” The bench observed.

University staff applicants not informed of hiring freeze before applying

first_imgIn wake of the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, the University has put into effect a 12-month recruitment freeze and redeployment protocol for all internally funded posts. However, applications for many positions are still being advertised, meaning candidates may only be informed of the hiring freeze after they have applied. The University has been contacted for comment. Wishing to remain anonymous, they told Cherwell: “Academia is already incredibly precarious for early career researchers, and academic job applications take days, if not weeks to complete well – indeed, many postdocs spend more time on job applications for their next position than on the research that they need to publish to help progress through the academic system.” Image Credit to Theonlysilentbob/ Wikimedia Commons Aris Katzourakis, Oxford University and College Union Co-President, stated: “All jobs currently advertised may go through the anticipated processes for approval put in place in the current circumstances and therefore applicants could be contacted to be told the job has been withdrawn at any stage.” An Oxford DPhil alumni criticised Oxford for failing to inform candidates in advance that recruitment procedures had been halted. The HR recruitment protocol clarified that “all recruitment exercises that are currently underway must be paused immediately (if an offer has not already been made) and the posts assessed against the new criteria for approval.” According to the protocol, new research posts may only be created or fixed-term contracts extended if “there are overwhelming operational imperatives to fill the post.” Some other conditions such as posts that must be filled for legal requirements or safety reasons may also lead to approval of new contracts. In response to hiring freezes and having to move teaching online, the board of Universities UK (UUK) has released a proposal to the UK government about a possible industry bailout plan, reportedly worth £2bn. According to the proposal, public funding could mitigate the impact of the ongoing crisis, as well as providing stability for students and researchers across the UK. Theprotocol applies to recruitment across the University, including alldepartments and subsidiary companies. It does not apply to colleges orPermanent Private Halls. The University of Oxford is the largest employer inOxfordshire and currently employs more than 1800 academic staff, more than5,500 research and research support staff, and more than 6,100 graduateresearch students. Cherwell understands that some applicants have only been informed of the recruitment freeze after applying for jobs. The University’s jobs website states: “In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) challenges, the University is re-assessing its resource requirements. As a result, we are pausing some existing recruitment until further notice.” The University reportedly hopes to continue the recruitment process as soon as possible and will be in contact with candidates in the future to provide further updates. last_img read more

Mr. Mature America 2017 is Matthew Allen

first_imgThey sang, they danced, they sashayed down the runway. And, mercifully, no one broke a hip in the process.When the “old geezer” jokes and fake limping finally were over, a 64-year-old financial adviser who is the brother of a former astronaut and the uncle of two Ocean City beauty queens was crowned Mr. Mature America 2017 on Saturday night.Matthew Allen, of Newtown, Pa., beat out nine other contestants ranging in age from 58 to 88 to win the title during a slapstick-like show at the Ocean City Music Pier hosted by 85-year-old TV talk show legend Regis Philbin.As he strutted triumphantly down the runway with the crown teetering on his head, Allen was serenaded with an irreverent pageant song that hailed him as a “handsome geezer” and asked, “Hip hip hooray, is your hip still OK?”Pageant Director Michael Hartman, left, shares a laugh with TV personality Regis Philbin, who served as master of ceremonies.“I’m feeling a little bit silly right now with this crown on my head,” Allen confessed in an interview minutes later. “But I also feel great.”A parody of America’s oh-so-serious female beauty pageants, the Mr. Mature contest is the only one of its kind in the entire country. It is open to men 55 and older who compete in the talent, poise and on-stage interview segments.Sorry, ladies, there was no swimsuit contest.Named first runner-up Saturday night was Gregg Clayton, 58, of Somers Point. Second runner-up was Frank Formica, 65, of Atlantic City, who is already well-known to the public as the chairman of the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders.To open the show, Mr. Mature America 2016 Rene Sese led the contestants in a song-and-dance routine featuring the 1970s Village People hit “Macho Man.” Hamming it up for the audience, some of the contestants rolled up the sleeves of their T-shirts to reveal their saggy arm muscles.Allen performed a song-and-dance number during the talent portion, impersonating both Sonny and Cher in his comical rendition of “I Got You Babe.”Rene Sese, Mr. Mature America 2016, leads the contestants in a song-and-dance routine to the beat of the Village People’s hit 1970s record “Macho Man.”Dressed as a 1960s hippie, replete with a flowing wig and a big peace symbol, he alternately sang the Sonny parts and the Cher parts of the song without missing a beat. The audience exploded in laughter while watching his melodramatic dance steps.When Allen wrapped up his outrageous performance, Philbin, feigning shock, turned to Michael Hartman, the pageant director, and joked, “Do you check these people before you land them?”“We do a background check,” Hartman wittily replied.Allen certainly has an interesting background. His brother, Andrew Allen, is a former astronaut who flew on three shuttle missions. During the on-stage interview segment conducted by Philbin, Allen stressed how “incredibly proud” he and his family are of his brother.Allen has some other family members who are well-known, certainly in the beauty pageant world. His niece, Charlotte Erickson, 11, is the reigning Little Miss Ocean City. Charlotte’s 19-year-old sister, Julia, is a former Little Miss Ocean City and Junior Miss Ocean City.During the talent portion, Matthew Allen impersonated Sonny and Cher byperforming their hit “I Got You Babe.”“He’s been going to see everyone else’s beauty pageants. He finally got a chance to be in his own. That’s the joke,” said Tom Erickson, Allen’s brother-in-law and the father of Charlotte and Julia Erickson.Allen noted that it was Charlotte who encouraged him to enter the Mr. Mature America Pageant.“She said, ‘Uncle, you need to do it,’” Allen recalled, laughing.Mark Soifer, 84, who retired last year after serving for 45 years as Ocean City’s public relations director, created the Mr. Mature America Pageant in 2014 to add to his list of wacky, tourist-friendly special events that have generated tons of national publicity for the beach town. One of those events is the annual Miss Crustacean contest, a hilarious beauty pageant for hermit crabs.City officials presented Soifer with a lifetime achievement award Saturday night during the Mr. Mature America ceremonies. While accepting it, Soifer quipped that it was a “well-deserved” accolade that recognized his “huge contributions” to the city.Although the Mr. Mature America contest is a spoof of other beauty pageants, Soifer has emphasized that it is also a forum allowing men 55 and older to showcase their talents and prove that the older generation remains relevant.Allen, as the new Mr. Mature America, embraced that message.“It’s a tribute to older men. As an older man, I guess my role will be to make sure that people my age stay active and stay involved,” he said. Mr. Mature America 2017 Matthew Allen accepts the crown from Rene Sese, Mr. Mature America 2016.last_img read more

OCHS Thanks Delta Airlines for Saving the Day

first_imgDecember is often the best time of the year to spread cheer and gratitude. That’s exactly what Geoff Haines, the athletic director for the Ocean City School District, did recently when he personally delivered Ocean City goodies to representatives of Delta Airlines in Philadelphia to return the company’s goodwill.Gifts including school memorabilia, T-shirts, a hand-painted personalized rock from the ‘WE ROCK’ kindness initiative and a message of thanks, were included in the package to thank the airline for the pivotal role it played in getting the high school’s boys and girls cross country teams to Orlando, Fla., for Disney’s invitational race at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in October.“We were blown away by Delta’s generosity,” Haines said in a press release. “The kindness shown by the airline directly ties in with the message of our WE ROCK initiative, and we wanted to honor that with some visual reminders they can place behind the Delta desk in remembrance.”After the cross country teams’ Frontier Airlines flight from Philadelphia to Orlando was canceled because of bad weather, Delta stepped in to provide a charter flight to Florida. Members of the cross country teams turned to social media when they were stranded by the canceled flight, which got the attention of Delta.The airline’s willingness to act resulted in the boys varsity and junior varsity teams both winning first place out of the 78 competing high schools, the girls varsity team taking second place, and girls junior varsity taking fourth. The school contacted Delta’s headquarters directly to thank the airline. In response, the school received a letter of thanks and congratulations from Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “Delta went above and beyond in helping these student athletes achieve their goals to compete,” Ocean City Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Taylor said. “If not for them, the students would have missed the opportunity, and this was a trip they had been fundraising to attend for two years. We are appreciative and so thankful to everyone who was involved – from the airline representatives to the crew.”Athletic Director Geoff Haines, third from left, with Delta officials.

EMEC lead on US ocean energy project review

first_imgElaine Buck, technical manager at the European Marine Energy Centre, said: The 2019 Peer Review was conducted by a review panel coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO). “International collaboration and sharing lessons learned is vital to the US project peer review process and contributes to the success of a global marine energy industry.” “Elaine, with her expertise in marine energy and knowledge of the sectors in both Europe and North America, was invaluable to the review of our program. Released yesterday, the Project Peer Review report provides a review of the marine hydrokinetics (MHK) and hydropower programmes. Projects had to meet a set criteria spanning specific activity areas including foundational R&D, technology design and validation, reducing barriers to testing and data sharing. Elaine Buck, technical manager at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) acted as chair for the MHK Peer Review programme and lead technical reviewer. EMEC has strengthened its collaboration with the United States feeding ocean energy expertise into the 2019 Project Peer Review Report. As chair and technical panel lead, EMEC contributed its knowledge of ocean energy sector progress in the UK and across Europe into project reviews and influenced strategic direction of the DOE MHK programme strategy going forward. Conducted every two years, the Project Peer Review is a key tool offering a holistic focus understanding of US research and development efforts. The panel evaluated the MHK programme strategy as well as individual ocean energy projects and new initiatives. “We also appreciate the important collaboration we have with EMEC, especially their advisory support for the PacWave facility under development. “We know the marine energy community will benefit for years to come thanks to Elaine’s efforts and our enduring partnership with EMEC.” Alejandro Moreno, director of the Water Power Technologies Office, said: “The model programme of peer review should be adapted and followed in European projects which support joint strategic direction of ocean energy developments. “As the MHK Chair for the 2019 WPTO Peer Review, Elaine Buck led a panel of twelve subject matter experts in reviewing the DOE marine energy R&D strategy and 41 individual projects. “It was an honour to chair the MHK Peer Review and share learnings from EMEC’s 17 years’ experience in R&D testing. last_img read more

Kneeling On Necks, Condemned By Sarasota Police Chief, Authorized in Man’s Arrest

first_imgAs protests and tensions continue nationwide over the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, another situation that occurred a week earlier in our state is gaining attention.In a memo copied to Sarasota Police Chief Bernadette DiPino on May 19, a captain of the department concluded that when an officer “placed a knee on the neck” of a suspect during an arrest a day earlier, “the application of force appears reasonable.”That conclusion, by Capt. Demetri Konstantopolous, was made in a use of force report to Officer Matthew Hughes, describing actions by Officer Drusso Martinez as he struggled with 27-year-old black Sarasota resident Patrick Carroll while trying to arrest him on alleged domestic battery charges on May 18.The arrest, as well as Martinez’s kneeling on Carroll’s neck, did not become public knowledge until June 1, when the police department was tagged in a video post.The matter is under internal investigation and litigation.However, DiPino defended her handling of the case. She said, “When I became alerted to these incidents I took immediate action.”Chief DiPino issued a statement about the cellphone video after it became widely public June 1, saying, “While it appears the officer eventually moves his leg to the individual’s back, this tactic is not taught, used or advocated by our agency.”Officer Martinez has been placed on administrative leave.Two days before Carroll’s arrest became public, DiPino condemned the tactic of subduing suspects with a knee to the neck, in response to the viral video showing the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis through the same type of force.On May 30, DiPino issued a statement that read in part, “I was shocked and outraged by the actions and conduct of the Minneapolis police officer and the inaction of the other officers I observed on the video,” her statement said.It continued, “The senseless death of Mr. Floyd is tragic, heartbreaking and never should have happened. … The men and women of the Sarasota Police Department are not trained to use tactics I’ve seen in the videos in Minneapolis. The actions of the officers in Minneapolis were inexcusable.”Michael Barfield, president of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, questions the timing of DiPino’s message.On June 1, we were tagged on social media showing a portion of a video with Officers arresting an individual on May 18, 2020. After viewing several videos, Chief DiPino immediately initiated an I.A. investigation & placed the officer on admin leave. More @— Sarasota Police Department (@SarasotaPD) June 2, 2020 “DiPino needs to stop pretending she was unaware of the knee-on-the-neck tactic,” Barfield said. “Her patrol captain signed off on it as ‘reasonable’ and sent her that message six days before the George Floyd incident in Minneapolis.”He adds that the chief could have acted sooner.“Condemning this terrible tactic after the fact is a political move,” he said. “The time for Chief DiPino to be a leader was on May 19 when she knew one of her officers used the knee-on-the-neck tactic. She didn’t condemn it then. Worse, she pretended not to know anything about it when it came to light. That conduct is disappointing and inconsistent with being a public servant.”In response, DiPino said Saturday that there are six levels of review before she receives reports, and that her department takes immediate action when an incident violates policy.For example, she pulled the use of the vascular neck restraint, a tactic that restricts blood flow to the brain and causes the person to become unconscious, on May 27, in order to review the practice.On May 7, that tactic was used on a 22-year-old who attempted to strike officers.According to a arrest report, Carroll was arrested May 18 in connection with a domestic battery case. Officers Martinez and Amelia Wicinski say he was cooperative at first.Carroll said he went to the female victim’s house to pick up some clothes, but they ended up arguing when he found clothes on the lawn.He added that the woman cursed and yelled at him, and threatened to call the police, prompting him to pack some items and leave.However, Carroll denied striking the woman.Officers arrested him for domestic battery, as the woman had visible bruising and swelling on her arms, face and chest area, the report explained.Carroll began to yell at the officers, asking them why he was being placed into handcuffs.While being placed in handcuffs, he continuously attempted to reach into his pockets, according to police.The arrest report says Carroll refused to comply with a body search.The officers then took him to the ground “with minimal force” when he struggled with them.“I grabbed a hold of Carroll’s right wrist and right elbow area and conducted a takedown. Carroll landed on his stomach, at which time he continued to flail his body and head,” Martinez recalled in the use of force report. “I placed my right knee on the back of his neck to better control his body, at which time he calmed down.”A search of Carroll’s body lead to the discovery of a baggie of marijuana; his backpack contained four .22-caliber bullets, police said. A criminal search also found that he had a felony conviction.In addition to domestic battery, Carroll was charged with felony possession of ammunition and misdemeanor resisting arrest.Photos provided by Martinez show Carroll had no injuries, the report said.last_img read more

The most controversial moments in English football

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesWith the best time of year, football season, starting and going ahead, we thought we would compile a list of the most controversial moments in English League football. I guess only a handful of us will be able to remember all of them. 1) Derby County’s Penalty Spot FiascoDerby County’s old ground, The Baseball Ground (BBG), was renowned for being a horror to play on. Instead of the bright, green pitches of today, 1970s football was literally played on mud.The BBG in the seventies, then, was a literal warzone. Things reached a head when Derby County played Manchester City at home in 1977, which is a contender for the worst English pitch ever used to be used in an official game.The ground was so muddy that following a penalty decision, a groundskeeper had to run on the field to paint a new one on:Nowadays, as football has become more commercialised and professional, pitches are kept in a fit state thanks to line-marking businesses like BowCom. Even back then, however, to have a groundskeeper perform maintenance mid-game was unprecedented.2) Keegan’s “Love it” SpeechNewcastle and Manchester United’s title race in 1996 was gloriously entertaining, but then-manager Kevin Keegan’s post-match speech defined the future of Premier League discourse between managers: it was full of fire, passion and a total lack of respect.Back on April 29, 1996, Keegan’s side beat Leeds 1-0 in a tight game to go within three points of leaders Manchester United, with a game in hand and two left to play. Before the game, Ferguson implied that Newcastle was in their position as teams didn’t try against them, to which Keegan responded with the following:“I’ve kept really quiet but I’ll tell you something, he went down in my estimations when he said that. We have not resorted to that. You can tell him now, we’re still fighting for this title and he’s got to go to Middlesbrough and get something – and I’ll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them. Love it. It really has got to me. I’ve voiced it live, not in front of the press or anywhere. I’m not even going to the press conference, but the battle is still on and Man United have not won this yet.”There have been more confrontational post-match interviews, but this set the tone for the Premier League.3) Alan Pardew Loses the PlotAlan Pardew isn’t remembered fondly for his personality and for good reason. The manager has always had a reputation for being a little thuggish, which he proved in 2014 after he headbutted a midfielder for an opposing team.Managing Newcastle at the time, Pardew, randomly, headbutted David Meyler as the midfielder took a throw-in. The manager left Newcastle that year in disgrace.4) Paolo Di Canio Loses the Plot, TooSadly, disrespect of referees is synonymous with football. The rocky relationship between player and referee has never been sound, but Paolo Di Canio’s assault of referee Paul Alcock in 1998 set the tone for the league’s officiating trends. The controversial striker has always been remembered more for his antics that his decent playing career, but even by his standards this was too far.Following a deserved red card, Di Canio reacted by pushing the referee over.The assault on the referee was certainly minor, but the crossing of that physical barrier was a symptom of football’s erosion of respect between officials and players.5)Eric Cantona’s Kung-Fu KickFor a player of Eric Cantona’s quality, it is saddening that he is remembered for such a violent outburst. The now-legendary reaction has gone down in football folklore. Cantona, in January 1995, performed a moment that shocked football and is likely the most famous case of common assault in the English legal system.Following a red card for lashing out at another player, Cantona, on his way to the tunnel, received a hurl of abuse from a fan in the crowd. Out of nowhere, Cantona reacted in what can only be described as a kung-fu kick, hitting the fan in the chest. A brawl ensued, with the player escorted down the tunnel.The player was given jail time for his assault, serving two weeks in prison. The moment set up the Premier League as not only a place for attractive football, but as an arena of controversy.
