New Delhi: The Delhi high court on Thursday dismissed a plea challenging the inclusion of a supreme council member of St Stephen’s College here in the interview panel for admission of Christian students to the institute.Justice Anu Malhotra dismissed the plea moved by three professors of the college. The court had earlier declined to stay the interview process for admission of Christian students to the college under the Delhi University (DU). The teacher-members of the college’s governing body – N P Ashley, Abhishek Singh and Nandita Narain – had challenged a decision taken by the college’s supreme council at its March 12 meeting.

The supreme council is higher in authority than the governing body of the college, comprising members from the Church of North India and also those nominated by it. The petitioners had contended that the “interference” of the church in the admission process was against the norms of the college. However, the college, before the single-judge bench, had claimed that the petition was not maintainable as neither any fundamental right nor any statutory or legal right of the petitioners was violated. The college had urged the court to dismiss the petition, alleging that the petitioners had not approached the court with clean hands and the plea was moved with oblique motives.
Chrysler refuses US safety agency’s request to recall about 2.7 million SUVs by Tom Krisher And Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Press Posted Jun 4, 2013 1:38 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email DETROIT – A defiant Chrysler is refusing to recall about 2.7 million Jeeps the government says are at risk of a fuel tank fire in a rear-end collision.The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sent Chrysler a letter asking that the company voluntarily recall Jeep Grand Cherokees from 1993 through 2004 and Jeep Libertys from 2002 through 2007.Chrysler Group LLC, which is majority-owned by Italy’s Fiat SpA, said in a statement Tuesday that the Jeeps are safe and it “does not intend to recall the vehicles.”Such a refusal by an auto company is rare. NHTSA can order a recall but needs a court order to enforce it.David Strickland, the agency’s administrator, said in a statement that he hopes Chrysler will reconsider its decision. “Our data shows that these vehicles may contain a defect that presents an unreasonable risk to safety,” Strickland said.NHTSA opened an investigation into the Jeeps in August 2010 at the request of the Center for Auto Safety, a Washington, D.C., advocacy group. Clarence Ditlow, the centre’s director, has repeatedly sent letters to Chrysler seeking a recall.The agency found that the Jeeps’ fuel tanks can fail when hit from the rear, leak fuel and cause fires if there’s an ignition source. The placement of the tanks behind the rear axle and their height above the road is a design defect, NHTSA wrote in a letter to Chrysler dated Monday.Chrysler moved the fuel tanks on the Grand Cherokee ahead of the rear axle in 2005, and did the same thing with the Liberty in 2007. But retrofitting the older Jeeps with repositioned tanks would be time consuming and costly. In 2011, when Toyota recalled 1.7 million cars for possible fuel leaks from loose fuel pressure sensors, an analyst estimated the cost at $240 million.Automakers usually agree to a recall request, partly to avoid bad publicity. In the last three years, Chrysler has conducted 52 recalls.The company previously refused a NHTSA request in 1996, when the agency asked it to recall 91,000 Dodge Stratus and Chrysler Cirrus cars for an alleged seat belt defect. NHTSA sued the company and won in federal court. But in 1998, an appeals court reversed the decision, saying NHTSA had unfairly held Chrysler to a new standard.Chrysler was represented in that case by John Roberts, now chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.Chrysler says its review of nearly 30 years of data shows a low number of rear-impact crashes involving fire or a fuel leak in the affected Jeeps.“The rate is similar to comparable vehicles produced and sold during the time in question,” the company said in the statement. It also said NHTSA left some similar vehicles out of its investigation.But NHTSA said the older Jeeps performed poorly when compared with all but one similar vehicle from the 1993 to 2007 model years, “particularly in terms of fatalities, fires without fatalities, and fuel leaks in rear-end impacts and crashes.”NHTSA found at least 32 rear-impact crashes and fires in Grand Cherokees that caused 44 deaths. It also found at least five rear crashes in Libertys, causing seven deaths. The agency calculated that the older Grand Cherokees and Libertys have fatal crash rates that are about double those of similar vehicles. It compared the Jeeps with the Chevrolet S10 Blazer, Ford Explorer, Toyota 4Runner, Isuzu Rodeo, Isuzu Trooper, Mitsubishi Montero, Suzuki Sidekick and Suzuki XL-7.NHTSA asks Chrysler to recall the vehicles and “implement a remedy action that improves their performance in rear-impacts and crashes.” It made no recommendation on a fix.The dispute leaves owners of the affected Libertys and Grand Cherokees waiting for government or court action.It also leaves Chrysler open to the risk of big liability if there are more crashes and injuries linked to the fuel tanks, said Logan Robinson, a University of Detroit Mercy law professor and former Chrysler corporate counsel.Lawyers could argue that if Chrysler had recalled the Jeeps, people wouldn’t have been hurt, he said. But that liability would be limited if Chrysler beats NHTSA in court and a judge rules the company didn’t sell defective vehicles, Robinson said.Chrysler called the older Grand Cherokees and Libertys “among the safest vehicles of their era,” saying they met all federal safety standards in effect when they were built. “NHTSA seems to be holding Chrysler Group to a new standard for fuel tank integrity that does not exist now and did not exist when the Jeep vehicles were manufactured,” the company said.NHTSA concedes that the Jeeps met federal safety standards when they were built, but says the standards are minimums for vehicle safety. “The existence of a minimum standard does not require NHTSA to ignore deadly problems,” the letter said.Chrysler has until June 18 to respond to the letter. If it formally decides against a recall, the company must explain the action to NHTSA, and the agency can then issue a final decision that the Jeeps are defective.NHTSA has the authority to fine companies if they are slow to provide data or recall vehicles. Automakers have been more compliant of late, after the agency fined Toyota Motor Corp. a record $66 million for failing to quickly report problems and for delaying a recall. Toyota paid the fine without admitting it violated the law.When NHTSA started the Jeep probe in 2010, the agency said it knew of 10 crashes and 13 deaths that were likely associated with rear-end crashes involving Grand Cherokees.NHTSA wouldn’t comment on why it took three years to recommend a recall. But the agency pointed to its record, saying in a statement that its investigations brought 134 recalls of 9 million vehicles last year alone. Investigations that are more complex with millions of vehicles take more time, it said.

Lawrence Ho is striking out on his own, pursuing a casino deal in Vladivostok.The co-chairman of Macau’s Melco Crown Entertainment has signed an agreement to develop a property in Russia’s designated Far East casino zone, known as Primorye, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. Evan Winkler appointed President as Melco Resorts implements latest management overhaul Melco likely to pass Australian regulatory inquiry, target full Crown acquisition: Bernstein Mr Ho’s is the first big name associated with the zone, one of four the government has set aside for casino development after the industry in 2009 was banned from Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities where it was flourishing virtually unregulated and only lightly taxed. The other zones, all relatively remote, are Kaliningrad in Eastern Europe, the Altai region in Central Asia and in the lower Don River region near the Black Sea.Mr Ho’s investment is being made through a Hong Kong-listed entity called Summit Ascent Holdings, one of five bidders the Primorye government has selected to present casino proposals. It is not known how many will be selected or when, according to the Journal.The Russian zones have yet to strike a chord with investors, so to encourage development Primorye is offering low capital minimums and tax breaks resulting in an effective levy on gambling revenue of zero.No details were available on Summit’s project except that plans call for it to open in the second half of 2014 at a site about seven miles from Vladivostok airport.The attraction of Primorye is its relative proximity to northeast China, the Koreas and Japan. Beijing is about two and a half hours from Vladivostok by air, Harbin less than two hours. Casinos are prohibited in both China and Japan. South Koreans are permitted to gamble in only one casino in their country.

Fortnite Post a comment 0 The hero mansion has seen better days. Epic Games Developer Epic Games has changed how challenges work in Fortnite season 10, aka season X. Instead of daily challenges, there are Limited Time Mission Objectives that unlock a new objective every day. Weekly challenges are now simply the Battle Pass Missions, which as the same states are available for season 10 Battle Pass owners. Completing missions will unlock additional content and earn Battle Stars to reach tier 100 on the pass. Another big change in Fortnite’s new season is the inclusion of Prestige missions. Once a set of challenges is completed, players can choose to redo the tasks. Each mission will consist of a similar requirement, though at a higher difficulty. Blockbuster challengesThe Blockbuster challenges for Fortnite season 10 Epic Games Land in Dusty Depot, then visit the Meteor in a single matchThe Meteor is floating just above Dusty Depot thus requiring no traveling. But, it’s floating and that means players will need to harvest materials to reach it. When you land, stock up on wood and begin building a ramp to the Meteor to complete this challenge. Harvest 300 materials at the BlockThe Block changes on a regular basis, which makes it not one of the favorite landing spots for players. The hero mansion is located on the west coast of the island between Paradise Palms and Lonely Lodge. Epic Games Land at a rundown hero mansion and an abandoned villain hideoutIn Fortnite season 4, Epic introduced heroes and villains into the game. Added to the map was a base for each located on opposite sides of the island. The map below shows both locations. To complete the challenge, players will need to visit both, but it doesn’t have to be in the same match. The locations of the hero mansion and villain hideout Epic Games Deal 250 damage while being affected by low gravityThis challenge is a little tricky. There are two spots where a player can be in low gravity. The first is at Zero Point at Loot Lake. Entering the area will make players low gravity to where they can jump higher, but that stops once you leave the area. Another spot is at the crater where the Rec Center used to be west of Neo Tilted. Scattered around that location are Hop Rocks that will make give players low gravity for a short period of time. This means to complete this challenge, players will have to visit either location and hope others are at the same location. Search between a basement film camera, a snowy stone head and a flashy gold big rigTo find this Battle Star, head to a hill southwest of Neo Tilted and northwest of Shifty Shafts. There will be a spot of dirt on the ground where the star will appear. Where to search between a basement film camera, a snowy stone head and a flashy gold big rig Epic Games Consume 10 fruits, mushrooms or glitched foraged itemsThis challenge is pretty easy since it consists of fruits and mushrooms. Those are found mainly in the wooded areas in the west side of the island. For glitched items, visit the previously mentioned crater where the Rec Center used to be west of Neo Tilted. Claim 3 vending machines in different matchesVending machines are randomly pressed across the island at the start of every match. If you see one, grab it immediately to complete this challenge. Blockbuster prestige challenges3 eliminations at Dusty Depot or the Meteor Focus on eliminating players at Dusty Depot. The Meteor is more compact and players tend to land there for a chest but quickly leave. On the other hand, more players tend to hang around Dusty Depot providing more options for eliminations. Search 7 chests or ammo boxes at the BlockThe Block tends to not have many players, but because it changes, it’s hard to know where the chests are. Luckily, this challenge will also include ammo boxes, too. Search 7 chests at an abandoned hero mansion or villain lair Both spots have a few chests each. There may be a few more players around thanks to the challenge, but in general, these spots are fairly empty. Deal 500 damage with explosive weaponsA straightforward challenge. If you find an explosive, toss it at an opponent and accumulate that damage. Search between a rotary phone, a fork-knife and a hilltop house full of Carbide and Omega posters The Battle Star for this challenge is just northwest of Fatal Fields. Look for a cabin and noticeable patch of dirt in the grass. Where to search between a rotary phone, a fork-knife and a hilltop house full of Carbide and Omega posters Epic Games Consume 8 fruits, mushrooms or glitched foraged items in a single match Like the earlier challenge, focus on fruits and mushrooms. There are more plentiful and scattered all over unlike the glitched foraged items that are located in one spot. Harvest 300 materials at the Block or Dusty Depot in a single match Of the two locations, the Block will have fewer people around, but it’s hard to say how many materials are available. Dusty Depot will have enough although far more players will be there. The Catastrophic Limited Time Missions for Fortnite season 10 Epic Games These missions will unlock over the course of the next seven days. Each day will have a new mission to complete.

A set of challenges for the event went live Tuesday. Some of the quests consist of collecting chests and eliminating players in the newly transformed Pandora now found in Paradise Palms. Two of the missions, however, require a bit more work to complete. Where to find Claptrap’s missing eyeClaptrap — the quick-talking, somewhat creepy, big ego, lovable robot from the Borderlands series — is located under the Welcome to Pandora sign at the southwest part of Paradise Palms, just off the main road. Claptrap is just relaxing under the Welcome to Pandora sign in Paradise Palms. Epic Games His eye can be found in a Borderlands-looking shack near the southern tip of Paradise Palms. You can find it in front of the TV inside the building. Grab it and then head back to Claptrap to complete the challenge.

Hemis (Ladakh): When 52 young innovators dressed in maroon graduation robes gathered in the courtyard of a 17th century Buddhist monastery, surrounded by jagged mountains at nearly 13,000 ft in Ladakh, the convocation was anything but ordinary. The first batch of year-long Naropa Fellowship graduated in a ceremony held on Sunday at the iconic Hemis Monastery premises, where Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal and Chief Executive Councillor, Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Gyal P Wangyal were among the guests. Also Read – Shah urges women to shun plastic bags Advertise With Us The Naropa Fellowship, named after ancient Buddhist scholar Naropa, was inspired by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa, of Drukpa Buddhist lineage, and co-founded by His Eminence Drukpa Thuksey Rinpoche and educationist Pramath Raj Sinha, also founder of the Ashoka University. “We named the fellowship after Naropa, as he was a great scholar and also was a student of the Nalanda University. The programme seeks to foster in these select candidates a spirit of innovation with a sensitive eye on the fragile Himalayan region. These are our Himalayan heroes,” Rinpoche told PTI. Also Read – Free bus travel for women gets Cabinet nod Advertise With Us The Buddhist leader earlier spoke at the ceremony in Ladakhi as many monks watched the ceremony from the sidelines eagerly. “It’s an honour to present leaders of tomorrow who will create a meaningful impact in the Himalayan region,” he was quoted as saying in a statement issued by authorities at Naropa Fellowship on Monday. “With Ladakh being declared as a Union Territory, our vision is now aligned in removing major barriers in the prevailing education system in the region and create opportunities for youth to study and become successful entrepreneurs,” Rinpoche said. Advertise With Us The Buddhist leader of the Drukpa lineage also emphasised on the beautiful setting of the convocation, which he said, will inspire these young minds to dream big but remain humble towards the nature. The 52 fellows, drawn from different parts of the country, including one-third from Ladakh region, collected their certificates on a modest stage that was dwarfed by towering dry, brown mountains and overhanging skies on a sunny afternoon in heavenly Ladakh. Namgyal said the fellowship was introduced for the first time in Ladakh, and such steps were needed for Ladakh’s future as also for the global ecological system. With Ladakh standing at a cusp of a historic change, these 52 young, dynamic entrepreneurs, during their fellowship, came up with several innovative projects across diverse fields to shape the future of the Himalayan region with sustainable solutions. “Perhaps, never has been a convocation held in such a beautiful and iconic setting where the grand beauty of nature puts you in a sense of awe. And, as you graduate today after finishing the fellowship, innovation will be your watchword but the sustainability of the Himalayan region at the core of it,” said Sinha, also Dean of the Fellowship. Hemis village, situated in an idyllic environment near the shimmering Indus River, is located about 45 km from Leh town. The eponymous monastery, the largest Drukpa lineage monastery, is perched in the mountains in a picturesque setting. Giving a touch of Ladakhi culture, many parents attended the event in traditional attire, and one even spun a Buddhist wheel as the ceremony was underway, while little monks watched the programme from the first floor of a building in the courtyard. The maroon robes of fellows matched the colour of traditional robes worn by monks amid the iconic architecture of the monastery. Wangyal, in his address, said the Naropa Fellowship injects entrepreneurial skill that will “foster a sustainable environment in Ladakh and also in other parts of the country”. “Through innovation people in the Himalayan region will thrive and prosper for generations to come. This fellowship will address also rising challenges of unemployment and lack of training and skills, besides the steady cultural erosion of our old school tradition and morality,” he said. He said the younger generation needs to be educated “about the struggles of our forefathers and companionship with nature, and the Ladakhi culture”.
At least 8 dead in Baghdad suicide bombing. Reuters File photoAt least eight people were killed and 15 wounded in a suicide bombing at a market in eastern Baghdad on Thursday, a security official said.”A suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt blew himself up close to stalls at the crowded Jamila market,” said the senior police officer, who asked not to be named.There was no immediate claim of responsibility.A medical source confirmed that the nearby Al-Kindi hospital had received eight bodies.The attack took place at around 9.00pm (1800 GMT), at a time when many Iraqis have broken their Ramadan fast and take to the streets.Devastated by years of conflict, Iraq in 2017 declared victory over Islamic State jihadists after a gruelling months-long campaign to dismantle their self-declared “caliphate”.But sleeper cells have remained active, attacking civilians and security forces across the country.Explosions in several Shiite-majority districts in Iraq’s capital in November killed six people, most of them civilians.A twin suicide bombing in Baghdad in January last year killed 31 people, the second such attack in three days.
A diet high in fat content can lead to anxiety and depression by causing measurable changes in the brain, researchers report.Also, the beneficial effects of an antidepressant were blunted in mice fed with a high-fat diet. When treating depression, there is no predictor of treatment resistance.“So if we consider metabolic disorders as a treatment resistance predictor, this should encourage psychiatrists to put in place a personalised treatment with antidepressant drugs that do not further destabilise metabolism,” explained Bruno Guiard, senior author of the study appeared in the British Journal of Pharmacology.The results set the tone for future investigations on potential mechanisms that may link metabolic and psychiatric disorders.

November 26, 2017 611 Views Share Judge: State Must Cover Castle Law Attorney Fees in Daily Dose, Headlines, News 2017-11-26 Aly J. Yale Castle Law Group has once again been vindicated in a court of law. This time, a Denver district judge has ordered the Colorado Attorney General’s office pay the group’s legal fees—fees that stem from Castle’s landmark win against the state earlier this year.According to a District Court order handed down last week, the State of Colorado will need to pay a portion of Castle Law Group’s attorney fees and costs associated with State of Colorado v. The Castle Law Group.The case, in which Attorney General Cynthia Coffman claimed the firm defrauded thousands of customers and homeowners during the housing crisis, spanned five years. District Judge Morris Hoffman ruled in Castle’s favor in April.In his order handed down last week, Hoffman said the AG was “wrong to bring and pursue most of this case.”“The evidence, or lack of evidence, at trial was nothing short of breathtaking, especially compared to the investigative build-up and the serious and pervasive allegations in the complaint, Hoffman wrote. “The case Plaintiffs put on wasn’t even a sick relative of the robust allegations they made. They didn’t call a single witness from any of the allegedly deceived industries. I recognize that reliance was not an element of Plaintiffs’ CCPA/CFDCPA claims. But how could they not call a single buyer when their central claim was that the price that buyer paid was deceptively above market?”The order spans 20 pages and delves into much of the AG’s failures in handling the case. Despite these misgivings, Hoffman says he doesn’t think Coffman or other AG employees acted out of malice.“Despite Plaintiffs’ exhaustive investigative efforts, despite the feeble trial they put on, and despite the minimal results they achieved, I do not believe that Plaintiffs acted in bad faith,” Hoffman wrote in his order. “These were gross errors of judgment, not vindictiveness. I don’t doubt that every one of the assistant attorneys general who participated in this case, and their governmental client-representatives, subjectively thought this was a righteous case; they probably still do.”Larry Pozner, Partner at Reilly Pozner LLP and lead defense attorney in the case spoke to MReport exclusively about the case.This case represents an unwarranted intrusion into the practice of law. It is up to law firms to serve their clients honestly and ethically but as the court pointed out there wasn’t a single institution that appeared in trial and said they were taken advantage of. Despite this, the state wiped out a prestigious and extraordinary law firm that employed 200 people. You can give back the all attorney’s fees in the world but you can’t replace the prestige and reputation of the law firm or its existence. I think sophisticated clients would be bothered by the complaint that was filed but as the judge pointed out the it’s easy to type the complaint it’s another thing to have the facts to back to it up. It was tragic that a tax supported law enforcement agency proceeded on five separate claims with no appropriate evidence, it was groundless and frivolous litigation. The industry ought to pay attention to the consent decrees against other law firms. I think the AG consent decrees with other law firms improperly inhibits their ability to provide the quality of vendor services that sophisticated clients deserve and prefer.It took the Castles to stand up and say we are not going to put up with this, we are going to fight back and tell our story. In the end it was the Attorney General who should be embarrassed about their conduct.The exact amount the state will need to pay is yet to be determined—though it’s likely to reach into the millions. The total tally will be discussed at a hearing early next year.Click here to view the full order.
The past summer holiday season sparked a boom in Hass avocado sales, according to the Hass Avocado Board’s (HAB) recently released Q3 2018 report.Fourth of July sales continued to grow, reaching a four-year high in 2018 of nearly US$53 million in sales and 50 million in units.
