Ramasubramaniun issued notice on a plea filed by the Ministry of External Affair, also seeking a stay on the ongoing proceedings before the Manipur High Court [in Niraj Cement Structurals Ltd. V. Union of India WA 17/2019] which had hauled up the project for construction of the road project connecting Manipur to Thailand. With a stay on the High Court proceedings, the CJI-led bench has freed a significant barricade in the culmination from a Trilateral Highway Connectivity venture between India, Myanmar, and Thailand.After India signed an agreement with Myanmar in 2016 under the “Act East Policy”, one of the aspects of which included construction of the highway which will run from Moreh in Manipur through Tamu in Myanmar to Mae-Sot in Thailand, a contract was signed between the Centre and a Contractor Niraj Cement Structurals Limited and Manipur Tribal Development Corporation Limited in November 2017.The Centre terminated its contract on December 2018 with the Contractor Niraj Cement due to impending delays. This led to a litigation battle initiated by Niraj Cement in 2019, with Niraj Cement challenging the order of termination. This has been pending before a division bench of Manipur High Court of Chief Justice Ramalingam Sudhakar & Justice Lanungsunkum Jamir. It was this proceeding which the CJI led bench stayed on July 28, paving the way for the project.Attorney General KK Venugopal appeared on behalf of the Union and apprised the court of the ongoing litigation before Manipur High Court, reiterating that the Contractor had recourse to arbitration vis-à-vis the contractual agreement and that the Manipur High Court lacked jurisdiction to hear the case as the Contract was signed between parties in New Delhi. Further to this, the impending litigation was causing roadblocks, not only in the project which was sought to be completed by November 2020 but also tinkering with bilateral relations with neighbours.In this backdrop, Court ordered,”Issue notice returnable within two weeks. There shall be an interim stay of the proceedings pending before the High Court in the meantime.”The last hearing in Manipur HC took place on March 3, 2020. Click Here To Download OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

O.C. Beach Patrol Extends Guarded Beaches

first_imgVeteran lifeguards Tom Cusack, standing, and Andrew Gallagher watch over swimmers to make sure they stay between the green flags at the busy Ninth Street beach Sunday. By MADDY VITALEWith many people working from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic, students doing online courses and the shoulder season nearing, Ocean City is offering guarded beaches well into the end of September.Vacationers and residents will be able to spend weeks longer on the beaches and in the surf, with the assurance that the Ocean City Beach Patrol lifeguards will be on duty to protect them.“I think, especially this year, to extend the summer as far as we can because of the current climate, with online schooling and hybrid learning, and people working remotely, the beach has become a good place for a new office space,” said Beach Patrol Chief Mark Jamison in an interview Sunday. “We anticipate a busier than normal post-Labor Day here. We are excited to have the opportunity to continue to keep our beautiful beaches guarded.”On Sunday morning, beachgoers began to fill up the beaches at Eighth Street and Ninth Street. Many guards who typically go back to college in August or early September were available to work due to their schools going all-remote for the beginning of the fall semester.Veteran lifeguards Ellis Kirk, 23, of Ocean City, and Madeleine McCabe, 23, of Linwood, stood guard at the Eighth Street beach.Kirk, a Stockton University chemistry student entering his senior year, said he was staying through September. McCabe, a college graduate, said she would also stay on.“The preseason in May and June were more like July,” Kirk said. “I think we are facing a pretty interesting post season. It makes our jobs so much more real. Not only the volume of people but hurricane season is coming, which means big waves and heavy swells.”After Labor Day weekend, nine beaches will be guarded through Sept. 20 and six until Sept. 27. Some beaches that will remain guarded until Sept. 27 include 8th, 9th, 12th, and 34th streets, all popular areas with tourists.Swimmers enjoy warm waters on a sunny day at Eighth Street Beach.Beach Patrol Chief Jamison emphasized that, with hurricane season approaching, it is vital to keep the throngs of beachgoers safe after the holiday weekend.Over Labor Day weekend, Jamison noted that the whole island has been bustling. He predicted that trend would remain through September.“Yesterday it was packed inlet to inlet by 1 p.m.,” Jamison said. “That is all the more reason why it is so important to extend the guards.”Kathy Sykes, assistant to Ocean City High School Principal Dr. Matt Jamieson, spent the morning with her family on Ninth Street beach.“There is definitely a need for guarded beaches after Labor Day,” Sykes said. “There will be a lot of people who want to be outdoors.”Kathy Sykes, second from right, her mom, Lois Kershaw, at right, and from left, sister, Lois Kershaw, niece, Becky Hart, and her 3-year-old daughter, Sloan, bask in the balmy weather.Veteran lifeguards Tom Cusack, 23, of Beesleys Point, and Andrew Gallagher, 23, of Ocean City, protected the Ninth Street beach Sunday.They watched to make sure swimmers stayed between the green flags.Cusack called out to a young boy to come in closer to the shoreline.“With COVID-19, a lot more people are in town because so many people are working from home,” said Cusack, who is in his last year at West Chester University, which is all remote for the fall.Cusack added, “We will see more people than in a long time. That, coupled with hurricane season, which is predicted to be bad this year, will make it more important to have guards.”In addition to guarded beaches, there will be rapid response teams on hand to assist with emergencies.

Condemning attempted assassination of Venezuelan President

first_imgDear Editor,I wish to unequivocally condemn the attempted assassination of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. This is clearly intended to further destabilise the serious situation existing in Venezuela.Such an attempt is intended to achieve political ends by murder. It is possibly the intentions of the intellectual authors of this crime to seize power by force and/or to push the country to civil war.For too long, Latin America has suffered from coups, assassinations, and military style dictatorships. The history of the region demonstrates that such situations lead to social, economic and political degeneration, in which ordinary working people are the most injured.The history and events of other regions tell the same tale. Just a casual glance at the Middle East, Iraq, Libya, Syria and others confirms the universality of such diabolical acts.As a neighbour of Venezuela, I encourage all the social and political forces in Guyana to raise their voices in condemnation of this attempted assassination of that country’s president. Guyana will not be unaffected by such undemocratic and murderous acts.I therefore call on all legitimate Venezuelan forces to engage in meaningful dialogue to arrive at acceptable decisions.Once more, I wish to reiterate my own opposition to political assassination as a form of legitimate struggle.Finally, I wish to extend best wishes for a peaceful solution to all the people of Venezuela fighting for social and economic progress.Sincerely,Donald RamotarFormer Guyana Presidentlast_img read more

Takeaways: Before Vegas game, Sharks are snapped back to reality

first_imgSAN JOSE — The Sharks’ six-game win streak brought them closer to the pack in the Pacific Division. It gave them a much-needed morale boost after a disheartening end to a long road trip last month. At times, it showed what the Sharks can be capable of this season.It also hid a few of the Sharks’ blemishes, which bubbled to the surface for all to see in Tuesday’s 5-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.The Sharks (10-11-1) found ways to beat Anaheim last Thursday and Detroit on Sunday even though …last_img

Virtual Database Consolidates Search Across Distributed Heterogeneous Databases

first_imgThis week Dynatrek, Formtek’s partner in Japan was featured in one of Tokyo’s top financial newspapers.  Dynatrek has a unique patented technique for performing very high performance searches across heterogeneous distributed databases.  Here is the original article and my very rough English translation of it.Congratulations Joji-san! Effective Use of Existing DataBy Joji Saeki, CEO Dynatrek CorporationDynatrek (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku of Tokyo Japan, 30 million yen capitalization, 7 employees) develops and sells a data search integration tool called Dynatrek that uses a virtual database technology.  In December, 1999 the company was established and the Dynatrek product was announced. Throughout all of Japan there are 10 companies using the product.  Among banking and investment companies, the product is used at the Mitsubishi-Tokyo UFJ Bank branch office in Kyobashi and at the Mitsui Sumitomo Bank branch office in Ginza.“While I was doing System Consulting primarily for government agencies, in 1991 during the Gulf War, it was necessary to very quickly extract specific data from the Japan trade insurance data.  But it was determined that it was very difficult to do that kind of processing with the existing systems, so I undertook some research and development towards solving the problem.  What this project led to was new technology that made it possible to integrate data in real time from across multiple distributed systems and make it possible to perform searches as if it were a single unified database.  About half of the users today are in Japanese financial companies, and we expect to add more users in the financial sector going forward,” Saeki said.“Japanese IT in financial institutions is lagging the world.  It is necessary to build systems that are based on global trends.  Further, it is urgent to put to practical use the already existing data found in many huge system,” he hinted. ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????UFJ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????IT?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????last_img read more

Ohio State Wins The Crown

first_imgARLINGTON, Texas — Ohio State was done when Braxton Miller got hurt in August.Ohio State was done when it lost at home to Virginia Tech in September.Ohio State was done when J.T. Barrett got hurt in November.A funny thing happened: Every time the Buckeyes looked done, they kept getting better. And in the new era of college football, that was enough to earn a chance to win a championship.They took advantage of an opportunity they never would have had in the BCS, shrugging off questions about if they belonged among the college football’s final four.Cardale Jones, Ezekiel Elliott and the Buckeyes won the first College Football Playoff national championship, upsetting Marcus Mariota and Oregon 42-20 on Jan. 12.Behind their bullish backup quarterback Jones and the relentless running of Elliott, the Buckeyes (14-1) completed a remarkable in-season turnaround with a dominating performance against the Ducks (13-2).“Late August, around camp, everybody counted us out when our Heisman Trophy quarterback went down, and then when the first college football playoff rankings came out we was like No. 16 or 17,” Jones said. “Long story short, we weren’t supposed to here.”Ohio State began the first major college football playoff as the fourth and final seed, and was an underdog against both top-seeded Alabama and second-seeded Oregon. Plenty of people thought TCU or Baylor should have had the Buckeyes spot.No question about it now: Ohio State is the truest champion big-time football has ever crowned, showered by golden confetti as its band played the school’s unofficial anthem, “Hang on Sloopy,” after the clock hit 0:00.“This will go down as one of the great stories in college football history,” coach Urban Meyer said.The Buckeyes overcame two injured Heisman contenders and one awful 35-21 loss to Virginia Tech to win their first national title since the 2002 BCS championship. In the BCS, the early slip to the Hokies could have pretty much eliminated the Buckeyes for the championship race.Before the BCS’s 16-year stint, it was up to The Associated Press and coaches’ polls to sort out which team was best, with a little help from the bowls. The Buckeyes have three of those championships, too.Now they can add college football’s newest championship trophy to the display cases at Woody Hayes Athletic Center back in Columbus.Meyer now has three titles, adding this one for his home state team to the two he won for Florida. He matches Alabama’s Nick Saban as the only coaches to win national championship at two schools.It’s taken just three seasons for Meyer to put the Buckeyes — and the Big Ten — back on top, with a team that looks built to last.Elliott, a sophomore, was the offensive MVP and ran for 246 yards and four touchdowns on a career-high 36 carries.In the last three games — the Big Ten championship against Wisconsin, the Sugar Bowl semifinal against Alabama and the final against Oregon — Elliott had 696 yards rushing.“With all the stuff we went through to get here, it’s just crazy,” Elliott said. “It doesn’t feel real.”Jones, who took over in the Michigan game for the injured Barrett (who had taken over at the start of the season for the injured Miller), passed for 242 yards and a touchdown and ran for score in his third career start. The 250-pound third-year sophomore proved he could keep up with Mariota — at least on this night.Mariota passed for 333 yards and two touchdowns, but the Ducks’ warp-speed spread offense missed too many red-zone opportunities and couldn’t unleash its running game against linebacker Darron Lee and an Ohio State front seven stacked with future NFL draft picks.“We fought through a lot of stuff,” Mariota said. “We ended up short tonight, but that shouldn’t take away from what we were able to do this year.”Even with the benefit of four Ohio State turnovers, the Ducks were held to their lowest point total of the season, four touchdowns below their average coming in. They went 2-for-12 on third downs, with two killed dropped passes in the first half.“Their front seven is unbelievable,” Oregon receiver Byron Marshall said. “I think we missed some opportunities, and they played a great game.”Oregon has done just about everything as it has blossomed into a national power over the last two decades, but it will likely continue the search for its first national championship without Mariota. Barring a major surprise, the junior is likely to turn pro — though he wouldn’t talk about his upcoming draft decision after the game.Elliott scored the game’s last three touchdowns, finishing off the rout with a 1-yarder with 28 seconds left.While Elliott slipped and darted through the Ducks, Jones pushed them around and shook them off.When Jones surged and spun his way into the end zone with 4:49 left in the second quarter it was 21-7 Ohio State and the O! H! I! O! chant made the dome in North Texas sound like the horseshoe in Columbus. The Ducks were facing their largest deficit of the season.If there was any concern that fans wouldn’t travel to the championship game in the new postseason system, the packed house at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, awash in Buckeyes’ scarlet and Ducks’ yellow, put that to rest. The crowd of 85,689 was as charged as any BCS national championship game.But by the time Elliott went in from 2 yards out with 9:44 left in the fourth to make it 35-20 it was clear this night had turned into a Buckeyes Bash.(RALPH D.

Pochettino calls for calm despite massive win

first_imgMauricio Pochettino has called on Tottenham fans to remain calm after their ‘massive’ 3-0 victory at Manchester United.Lucas Moura netted a brace after Harry Kane opened the scoring as Spurs demolished Manchester United at Old Trafford 3-0. But Mauricio Pochettino is refusing to get carried away by the result.“It’s only three points but after four years playing here without scoring one goal and all that was negative for us, 3-0 away from home at Old Trafford is a massive, massive victory. Pochettino told Sky Sports after the match.“I said from the beginning, this is not decisive. Of course, this will provide us with a lot of confidence, and trust in how we are working. But we know that it’s too far away, the end of the season.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“We need to keep pushing, try to be consistent throughout the season. We’ve started really well with three games and three victories. We must keep calm and work hard, that’s the most important thing.“The players deserve the credit because they believe [in the philosophy]. We will see what happens [in the title race]. If we are in a good position with 10 games to go of the season, then we must be ready to fight, but for now it is too early.“The most important thing now is to build the feeling that this is never enough. There’s always possibilities to improve.”last_img read more
