A report was submitted by the Registrar General to the court in which it was stated that out of the four courts dealing with the cases under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, two Courts are vacant and concurrent charge is being held by the other Judicial Officers. The Registrar General also stated that though the process of appointing regular Judicial Officers is under consideration, it will be appropriate if totally 56 cases pending in Bengaluru Urban District under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, can be transferred to the designated Special Court (CCH-50) which has pendency of only 23 cases. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty on going through the report said “If the said suggestion is to be implemented, immediate steps will have to be taken to appoint a Judicial Officer for presiding over CCH-50. A copy of this order be forwarded to the Registrar General of this Court.” The direction was given during the hearing of a petition filed by Vaseemuddin A., a city-based advocate. The petitioner had sought a direction for setting up another special court to conduct the trial of cases registered under the UAP Act, 1967, particularly to deal with the chargesheets filed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) while complaining that accused in these cases, mainly charged for alleged terrorist activities, are languishing in prison owing to the delay in completion of trials. The matter will next be heard on March 24. Click Hear To Download/Read Order Next Storylast_img read more

Maine woman charged with manslaughter for allegedly running over man on baseball field

first_imgABC News (SANFORD, Maine) — A woman in Maine has been charged with manslaughter after she hit a man while driving out of control onto a baseball field during a little league game Friday evening.Carol Sharrow, of Sanford, Maine, allegedly blew through a gate and drove onto the field at Goodall Park, sending players and bystanders scattering for safety, police said. The woman turned around right in the middle of the field and drove back through the gate when she struck 68-year-old Douglas Parkhurst, according to police.Parkhurst was rushed to the hospital, but died en route.Surreal video showed the woman careening across the baseball diamond while parents and fans shouted for her to get off the field. A second cellphone video showed people rushing to Parkhurt’s aid in the parking lot after he was hit.Witnesses told Portland ABC affiliate WMTW that Parkhurst was attempting to push children out of the way and close the main gate to prevent the woman from fleeing when he was struck.“I pitched to one batter and then I heard, like, rubber burning and everyone looked up and then I heard screaming,” said Zachary McMurtry, who was playing in the game. McMurtry’s friend, Makena Murphy, captured the woman driving erratically across the diamond.Police said Sharrow, 51, has two previous convictions for driving under the influence. She was convicted of aggravated driving under the influence in New Hampshire in 2002 and was charged with operating under the influence by York County Sheriff’s Office, in Maine, at an uncertain date, WMTW reported.Maine State Police and the Sanford Police Department are continuing to investigate the incident. Sharrow is being held at York County Jail.Sanford is just 18 miles inland from Kennebunkport and about 35 miles south of Portland.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

DTI’s own goal over campaign message

first_img Comments are closed. Perhaps it is just coincidence, but the DTI has done a brilliant job thisweek in proving just why it needs to improve the way it develops employmentlegislation. One of the key points Personnel Today has been trying to make inour campaign with employers’ body the EFSP is that the Government is rushingthrough the consultation process without giving employers anything like enoughtime to provide a considered response.Last week, as if to ram the point home for us, the DTI released aconsultation document on union recognition with a deadline of responses ofunder six weeks. Many of the relevant bodies had barely had a chance to beginlooking at the consultation document by the end of last week – effectively onlygiving them five weeks to respond. Five weeks to decide a position on one ofthe biggest shake-ups in industrial relations in over a decade? This ispatently not good enough.Why is the Government in such a rush? The answer frequently given is thatthey have to implement European directives within a certain timeframe, but CBIadvisers retort that a extending deadlines by a few crucial extra weeks wouldbe perfectly feasible.The UK has an exemplary record in meeting these deadlines compared to someof our European neighbours. And it should not be forgotten that domesticgovernments are given two years overall to implement directives.Our argument has been that when there is not proper consultationpoorly-drafted legislation will be produced. Once again we have been provedright as last week a range of HR professionals have picked holes in thepart-time work directive. The problems range from the definition of part-time through to providingemployee benefits pro-rata – a host of issues that would be a nightmare for HRdepartments to deal with if the rules ever reached the statute book in thisshape. And the range of support – from HRspecialists to MPs – for our campaignsconfirms we have touched a nerve. The bottom line is this – breakneck consultation will produce legislationthat breaks. The experience of last week proves only that the Government stillcannot grasp this simple truth.

University Chancellor calls for radical overhaul of the BBC

first_imgOxford University Chancellor Lord Patten, who is also Chairman of the BBC Trust, has called for a “radical structural overhaul” of the BBC after the resignation of Director General George Entwistle.Patten’s statement was made following a recent Newsnight documentary which suggested that a Conservative peer was involved in a child abuse network, after which Entwistle made the decision to resign.  Controversy has surrounded the BBC this autumn following revelations concerning an unaired documentary exposingchild abuse allegations against BBC stalwart Jimmy Savile. Lord Patten is also under increasing pressure from MPs and the media to resign from his role as Chairman of the BBC Trust following public anger at the £1.3 million resignation package offered to Mr Entwhistle who lasted only 54 days in the job.Commenting on the severance agreement a BBC Trust spokesman said, “The BBC reached a consensual termination agreement with George Entwistle last night and agreed to pay him 12 months pay, in lieu of notice. This reflects the fact that he will continue to help on BBC business, most specifically the two ongoing inquiries.” Last week, Lord Patten appeared on the Andrew Marr Show to maintain his support of Mr Entwhistle, where he deplored the “awful journalism” that led to the Newsnight scandal. Lord Patten continues to resist pressure for him to also leave his post despite MPs calling for his resignation. MP Philip Davies, in a recent TV interview, labelled his position as “just as untenable” as Entwhistle’s and claimed, “the longer he clings on the more damaging it will be for the BBC.” Media attention has recently shifted focus onto the ten additional jobs that Lord Patten has on top of his role as Chairman of the BBC Trust, including work as an advisor for BP and energy firm EDF. In a blog post for the Spectator, Cherwell editors Grace Goddard and Barbara Speed expressed their concern regarding his many positions, writing, “As students at Oxford University, we are told repeatedly by tutors, proctors, and the Chancellor himself that we’re not allowed to do much outside our degree. We cannot do more than eight hours of paid work a week, and extracurricular activities are monitored carefully by colleges, who can revoke your right to do them at any time.“Lord Patten has arguably spread himself a bit too thin, taking on another significant appointment at the BBC commanding a salary of £110,000 a year, in addition to holding other remunerated positions listed in the House of Lords’ register of interests.”In response to Cherwell enquiries about Lord Patten and his involvement in the BBC crisis, a University of Oxford spokesperson said, “Lord Patten’s role as Chancellor of Oxford University is entirely separate from his position as Chairman of the BBC Trust. The Chancellor is usually an eminent public figure elected for life and serves as the titular head of the University, presiding over all major ceremonies. Lord Patten was elected Chancellor in 2003.”Lord Patten has said he wants to appoint a successor to George Entwistle within a “few weeks” and the vacancy is top of the agenda for the talks at the BBC Trust’s Great Portland Street offices in central London.It is unclear whether further changes to the BBC’s management structure will take place in the coming weeks.Lord Patten was a Conservative Member of Parliament for Bath between 1979 and 1992. From 1989 he held a position in the Cabinet. His current position at Oxford is part time, and until 2009 he also combined the role with the Chancellorship of Newcastle University. The BBC role, also part time, currently has a salary of £142,800 a year. The Trust Chairman is head of 12 Trustees, who represent the public who pay for the BBC. On the BBC website it is stated that “the Trust makes sure the BBC is run in the public interest and in the interests of licence fee payers.last_img read more

Lower UK margin mix hits Maple Leaf earnings

first_imgOntario-based Canada Bread’s UK subsidiary, speciality bread and bagel manufacturer Maple Leaf Bakery UK, has seen a drop in earnings for the first quarter to 31 March, 2009.The decline has been put down to “a lower margin product mix” due to the more pronounced effect of the recession in the UK. “Also, increased promotional costs to restore volumes reduced earnings,” according to a statement from Canada Bread.Maple Leaf Bakery is part of Canada Bread’s Frozen Bakery division, alongside its North American operations.Its Frozen Bakery division saw an overall sales increase of 3.1% to C$150.1m (£84.8m) compared to C$145.6m (£82.3m) for the same period last year. The increase was mainly driven by price increases in North America last year. Adjusted operating earnings rose to C$8.5m (£4.8m) compared to C$6.9m (£3.9m) for the comparable period last year.The firm’s Fresh Bakery division’s first quarter sales increased 10.9% to C$263m (£148.6m). Total sales for the first quarter increased 7.9% to C$413.1m (£233.5m) compared to C$382.9m (£216.5m) in the same period last year.Canada Bread Company is 89.8% owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc.last_img read more

Transforming IT Performance into Formula One Success

first_imgWhen people think of McLaren they think of Formula One where we have been competing since 1966. What makes us unique today is our diversification into three different businesses including a global, high-performance sports car business, McLaren Automotive, and a game-changing technology and innovation business, McLaren Applied Technologies as well as McLaren Formula One team. While our first goal is to win World Championships, we also strive to be a sustainable ongoing business and today we are recognised as one of the world’s most illustrious high-technology brands.The biggest challenge we face is supporting the growth and speed of innovation across these businesses. IT is fundamental not only to the building of infrastructure and communications technology but also to our high performance culture. Within Formula One our main focus is on improving our performance on the track. Formula One doesn’t operate like a normal business, there are 700 people focused on a getting a car to go around a track as quickly as possible.The way the car is designed has changed significantly over the last few years. Today much more is done using simulation, modelling and data analysis and the concept of a digital twin for every component of the car is now really important to the Formula One team. We have a huge requirement to drive continuous development through virtual, digital twin versions of our components to make sure that everything we design and engineer at the factory leads to a true on track performance when it reaches the car itself.A new component is manufactured every 17 minutes, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week, that’s just the pace of innovation, optimization and iteration of every single component on the car that a company needs to operate at to excel in Formula One. From the start of the season to the end of the season around 80% of the components of the car will change. The Formula One car never reaches production status, it’s a continuous-running prototype and all this is underpinned by great technology.Data is the foundation of making the car go faster and IT is there to support this. At trackside, data is critical as decisions are made at the point of knowledge. There are around 300 sensors on a Formula One car and McLaren will collect around 100 gigabytes of data per car during a race weekend. That data needs to be accessed in real-time by the engineers, both trackside and mission control, in order to be able to make decisions on with the car. Using machine learning and analytics we can dig down into what’s important.We are never more than a meter away from a piece of Dell Technologies equipment which we use to support our entire IT landscape. Within Formula One we need to ensure that we are finding marginal performance gains within our server estate, our storage estate and our desktop computer estate in order to support the business. Optimizing our own IT performance enables us to optimize the Formula One performance.last_img read more
