The notification has been issued under the Madras High Court Designation of Senior Advocates Rules, 2020, after the Permanent Committee, constituted under the said Rules, resolved to proceed with the designation process. Interested Applications/ Proposals should be submitted to the Registrar (Judicial) of the High Court, between 10.30 am to 4.00 pm on any working day before the deadline, in six hard copies duly complying with all the provisions of the Rules along with a soft copy in Pen Drive. All applications received shall be processed and published by 31st October, 2020 in terms of Rule 6(3) of the Rules. In its meeting held on September 14, the Permanent Committee considered certain issues raised by the Tamil Nadu Senior Advocates Forum. 1) For instance, the Forum had asked the Committee to reconsider the decision of fixing a minimum age of 45 years for designation as a Senior Advocate. Accordingly, it has been resolved thus: “since there are variations in this regard in the Rules of designation of Senior Advocates in the High Courts throughout the country, it would be appropriate that an interim application is moved before the Hon’ble Apex Court for its consideration in this regard in the case of Indira Jaisingh v. Supreme Court of India and others [Writ Petition (C) No.454 of 2015], so as to make a request to the Court to give an indication for a uniform pattern to be applied, and in the event any orders are passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, or directions given, the matter shall be again placed before the Committee for consideration.” The Committee has now asked the Registrar Judicial to take appropriate steps for drafting of the application to be moved before the Apex Court. 2) Further, the Committee has clarified that “Standing Counsel” used in Rule 8(1)(f) does not mean to include either the learned Advocate General, or the learned Additional Advocate Generals of the State, or the learned Additional Solicitor General of India, as they do not file Vakalatnama/Memo of Appearance. The Committee has also intimated that it has received: 24 recommendations from Judges for designating Senior Advocates; 3 recommendations have been made by Senior Advocates; Inter alia, 6 applications received prior to notification of the Rules are pending since December, 2016.

Floatgen Output More Than Doubles in H2 2019

first_imgFloatgen, the first wind turbine installed offshore France, more than doubled its power production in the second half of 2019 compared to the first semester, reaching an annual total of 6GWh. Such accuracy has been verified and validated by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), reviewing the load and movement measurements as well as the data processing methods. During the second half of 2019, the turbine faced maximum wave heights of up to 12.5m, equal to significant waves of up to 6.5m. This is said to confirm the performance and seakeeping of the Damping Pool design, as well as the accuracy of integrated floating wind turbine simulations developed by Ideol. ABS also evaluated the fully coupled simulation tools used by Ideol, independently re-running a number of load cases and comparing the simulation results with the observed and processed measurements. The project is a joint venture of Ideol, Bouygues Travaux Publics, Centrale Nantes engineering school, RSK Group, Zabala, the University of Stuttgart, and Fraunhofer IWES. According to Ideol, the number was achieved because of a time availability exceeding 94.6% in the second semester and an above-average capacity factor. Floatgen, which features a Vestas V80 turbine mounted on Ideol’s Damping Pool, started delivering electricity to the French grid in September 2018. The floating wind turbine remained fully operational throughout these first winter months, producing power up to 5.5m of significant wave height and up to 24.2m/s of wind speed. last_img read more

Portrait of Eternity—The life and journey of Bill Nunn Jr.

first_imgART ROONEY II at Bill Nunn Jr.’s gravesite. (Photo by Thomas Sabol)It was a just another day (at least it was for me) on the morning of May 7.  I had just concluded prerecording a new radio show that I began hosting, just three weeks prior to Mr. Bill Nunn Jr. making his final departure to join his ancestors.I peeped into the office of Alan Lincoln the former president of the Radio Division of the Sheridan Broadcasting Network one of the pioneers of Black American radio broadcasting and syndication. He now heads the Riverside Sales Group which has formed a partnership with 1550 WZUM in Pittsburgh, the classic oldies station.  Alan is also the executive producer of the aforementioned program that I host, “Knights over Egypt.”Anyway, I was about to yell out my usual “see you next week,” but before I could get it out Alan said, “I know you could not have known but Bill Nunn passed away last evening.”  At that point my next destination became a blur and seemed a trillion miles away.  I cannot for the life of me recall my response but it had to be incomprehensible.  The next action that I was truly cognizant of was getting on the elevator in my office building and pushing the button to take me to the 18th floor.  My schedule was so hectic on the date that Mr. Nunn passed away, I could not have possibly been privy to the information because I left home too early that morning to get the news and I was far too exhausted to even turn on the television when I arrived back late that night.last_img read more

Leafs continue to make moves, land Sawyer Hunt from Kimberley Dynamiters

first_img“(Sawyer) is a local kid and one of the top players in the league.”Hunt is also the brother of Dryden Hunt, who was named the WHL Player of the Year in 2016 after putting a stellar season together with Moose Jaw Warriors.”(Sawyer) is a power forward and has the potential to be a top forward in the league,” Dooley said.”He’s a gritty player that plays well at both ends of the rink and can put the puck in the net.”In a separate deal Dooley said the Leafs also moved goaltender Patrick Ostermann to Creston in a cash deal.”(Coach) Mario (DiBella) and I have been working hard recruiting and we’re adding what we believe are the key pieces to having  successful season,” Dooley said.”We’re definitely trying to change the culture from what we had the past two seasons,” he added.”Mario and I are on the same page when it comes to what we look for in our players and what kind of team we want to build.”We also want to get back to the days of development on and off the ice . Education, community involvement and putting a winning product on the ice.”Nelson, struggled to finish fourth in the Murdoch Division before getting ousted from post season by Beaver Valley, opens the KIJHL season with main camp August 12-15 at the NDCC Arena.The deal comes on the eve of the KIJHL AGM June 24-25 in Osoyoos. Nelson brass continues to do its best to change the culture of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League franchise as management completed its second major deal in less than two weeks Tuesday.Leafs acquired power forward and playoff standout Sawyer Hunt from the Kimberley Dynamiters in exchange for forward Nick Ketola and future considerations.The move comes 12 days after the Leafs sent Austin Lindsay to Ridge Meadows of the Pacific Junior Hockey League for forward Dale Howell and netminder Jay Sandhu.Hunt, a graduate of Nelson Minor Hockey, comes to the Leafs from a Dynamiters team that has spent the past two seasons at the top of the KIJHL — winning the league title in 2015 and finishing second to 100 Mile House Wranglers in 2016.In 89 games spanning three seasons with Kimberley, the 5’11”, 175-pound Hunt scored 20 goals and had 32 assists for 52 points.Hunt was a standout for the Nitros in the playoffs, especially this past season, as the power forward finished five goals and 11 assists for 16 points in 19 games.”We have a few more guys in our sights, but the deal for Hunt was one of our main targets this summer,” said Leafs coach Sean Dooley.last_img read more

Don’t write off Bhajji yet, says Kumble

first_imgHarbhajan Singh’s comeback at the World T20 was a mixed bag. He took four wickets against England, but was thrashed for 20 runs in two overs by the Australians.The attack by David Warner, coupled with Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s decision to stick to a seven batsmen- four bowler policy, saw Harbhajan sitting out of India’s remaining matches.But India’s highest Test wicket- taker Anil Kumble feels it would be foolish to count Harbhajan out. “You can never discard Harbhajan. He has more than 400 Test wickets to his name and he is only 31 or 32, which is the right age for a spinner to mature,” he said, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the Tenvic Sports Academy at Ryan International School, Rohini.The chairman of the BCCI technical committee had words of praise for new spin spearhead R Ashwin.” Ashwin has matured a lot in the few matches he has played. On the international front, I think Graeme Swann is going great and Pakistan’s Saeed Ajmal is also doing wonders,” Kumble said.Another issue that has been a cause of much debate in Indian cricket of late is how long Sachin Tendulkar will carry on. The maestro himself told a TV channel that he will reassess his career in November as he thinks there is not much cricket left in him. Kumble, a former India captain, felt that that it would be tough for the team without Tendulkar. ” I can’t think of Indian cricket without him. I want to see him play,” he said.”It is never easy to call it a day when you are playing for so long.”advertisementlast_img read more

St. Catherine land owners grateful for NLA titles

first_imgSeveral new land owners in Linstead are expressing gratitude to the Government for giving them the opportunity to own a title, which, they say, is a lasting legacy they can pass on to their children.The residents articulated their appreciation on Thursday (January 31) after receiving registered titles from the National Land Agency (NLA) for lands that they occupy.Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, was on hand to make the presentations during the NLA’s Road Show, which was held on the grounds of the St. Helen’s Catholic Church.The titles were provided under NLA’s initiative aimed at assisting ordinary Jamaicans to formalise their property ownership. Ruby Richards said she intends to pass on the property to her children and grand children. She said that she started the process of ownership of the land some five years ago, noting that it has been in the possession of her family since the 1980’s.Fitz Green, another recipient, said that being a landowner “makes me a better man”. He told JIS News that having the title will benefit his children, pointing out that “if I should die now, I leave them somewhere”.Dave Daley said he was “elated”. He noted that not having a certificate of title for the land he occupies has prohibited him from accomplishing certain goals.He said he is involved in agriculture and the land will assist him in obtaining a loan.Minister Pickersgill congratulated the recipients and urged them to put their titles to good use. He said the Government is in the process of creating an “ownership society” where all Jamaicans, regardless of their background, education or socio-economic standing, can secure land ownership.The Minister praised St. Catherine for having an “excellent record” of 70 per cent land registration, which is the second highest level next to Kingston and St. Andrew.“As at January last year, the parish of St. Catherine had 146,329 parcels. Out of that number, 102,472 have registered titles,” he said.last_img read more
