This was told by Mr. Rahul Mehra, Standing Counsel for Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi, to the Court. The Division Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar was further informed that apart from Mr Mehta, a team of Special Counsel for Delhi Police would also include ASG Maninder Acharya, ASG Aman Lekhi, Standing Counsel (UOI) Amit Mahajan, and Advocate Rajat Nair. This development came in a writ petition moved by Aqil Hussian, wherein a controversy arose between the Delhi Government and the Central Government relating to who would represent the Delhi police.On February 26, Rahul Mehra had objected to the appearance of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta in the case filed by Harsh Mander seeking probe into Delhi riots.Following that, on February 27, the Lieutenant General of Delhi passed an order appointe Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to represent Delhi Police in the case filed by Harsh Mander.However, there still existed a confusion if the LG can directly appoint counsel for Delhi police by passing the Delhi Government. This has been now settled with the Delhi Government also approving the appointment of SG Tushar Mehta and the other three special counsel. On May 29, Mr Rahul Mehra submitted that , it is only on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers of the GNCTD that the power under Section 24(8) Cr.P.C. to appoint the Special P.P./ Special Counsel can be exercised by the Lieutenant Governor, and that the Lieutenant Governor has no independent power to make such appointments. Mr. Mehra further submitted that the Delhi Police has accepted that position since it had applied for the appointment of Special P.P./ Special Counsel to the Ministry of Home, GNCTD and appropriate orders have been issued by the Home Minister of Delhi Government, Mr Satyendra Jain. Appearing for the Centre, Mr Amit Mahajan submitted that the approval of the Home Minister of the GNCTD has been obtained by the Delhi Police, so as to avoid the controversy and the same does not necessarily reflect the understanding of the Union of India with regard to interpretation of the judgment of the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in State (NCT of Delhi) Vs. Union of India & Another, (2018) 8 SCC 501. While noting that the present controversy does not survive for determination in the present case, the court observed: ‘We hope and expect that such like issues would be similarly resolved in other cases as well, so that the focus of the Court remains on determination of the merits of the disputes before it, rather than on such like issues.’ The matter will now be heard on June 08.Click here to download the Order Next Storylast_img read more

Save water, save money

first_imgMany ornamental nursery growers test to see if their plants need water by sticking a finger in the soil to see if it’s dry. Or, they just water them whether they need it or not. University of Georgia horticulturists have found a better way, one that requires less water, less fertilizer, less money and fewer dirty fingers.Now they have the funds and collaborations to study more water-saving technologies. UGA is part of a national team that received a five-year $5 million U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture Specialty Crop Research Initiative Grant. The goal is to save water, increase efficiency and reduce the environmental impacts of ornamental plant production.To do that, they’re developing “the next generation of tools to precisely monitor plant water use, allow for better control of irrigation water applications, increase the efficiency of water and nutrient use by ornamental growers,” said UGA horticulturist Marc van Iersel.Water moisture sensorsUGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences faculty will use $520,000 of the grant to study affordable soil moisture sensors that can be used easily in greenhouses and nurseries. Van Iersel has been working with sensors for six years. He’s shown that they work in his greenhouse and at test nurseries. And now he can make them feasible for growers. He, along with UGA professors John Ruter, Matthew Chappell and Paul Thomas, will work in their greenhouses, nurseries and at test sites at Evergreen Nursery in Statham, Ga., and McCorkle Nurseries in Dearing, Ga.McCorkle saw the impact of using soil moisture sensors in a study UGA did last year.“They were watering the plants using normal practices, and we were using soil moisture sensors to irrigate the plants,” van Iersel said. “We reduced water use by 83 percent. “There’s definitely the potential for drastic water savings. How much probably depends on a particular greenhouse or nursery, but throughout the U.S., it has the potential to save huge amounts of water,” he said.Plant modelsUGA faculty will also study the water needs of different plants, such as petunia, poinsettia, hibiscus and hydrangea. Cooperators from other institutions will then develop software that will predict how much water these plants use. Growers will be able to enter information like plant type and age, greenhouse light levels and temperatures to tailor the software. They will be able to estimate how much water they will need for their plants.“Hydrangeas will definitely be one of the plants,” van Iersel said, “because that is such an important crop, and it’s a plant that seems to need a lot of water. Growers have trouble keeping hydrangeas well-watered, and they’re often over-watered.”Group effortJohn Lea-Cox from the University of Maryland is leading the overall project, which includes engineers, plant scientists, economists and Extension specialists. In addition to determining water needs, they will construct watering systems that greenhouse managers can use, understand and install themselves. By combining their expertise, this group aims to develop a commercially-available, affordable product within the next five years.Other universities and research centers on the grant are Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, Colorado State University, Cornell University and the UM Center for Environmental Science. Commercial partners are Decagon Devices in Pullman, Wash., and Antir Software in Jarrettsville, Md. The grant will be combined with an additional $5.2 million in matching funding from various sources.Economists will look at whether the system is effective and economical for growers, van Iersel said. The questions they hope to answer are how much water, fertilizer and labor are saved, is there less runoff, less water to treat? And how about labor savings?Environmental impactVan Iersel sees the project as more than just a way for the plant industry to save money by reducing water and fertilizer. “It can be a way to decrease their environmental impact,” he said. “And that would benefit society at large.“If we reduce water use in these greenhouses and nurseries by X number of gallons per year, what is that value to society? If we can reduce runoff from greenhouses and nurseries, how much money is society saving by not having to clean up that water?”For more details of the project goals, the university teams and the commercial partners, visit www.smart-farms.net.last_img read more

CAF BEACH SOCCER: Supersand Eagles Defeats Libya, Ready for Tanzania …

first_imgNigeria turned back Libya 6-3 yesterday afternoon to brighten her chances of a place in the semi finals of the on-going CAF Beach Soccer Cup of Nations in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.The win came about 24 hours after the two-time African champions lost 0-2 on penalty shoot-out to Senegal, after both teams ended it 4-4 at regulation and extra time. Emeka Ogbonna, best player of the last edition of the competition held in Lagos in 2016, contributed two of the goals to add to the lone strike he secured against four-time champions Senegal on Saturday, to take his tally to three at this tournament. Abu Azeez, another star player on the Nigeria side, also netted a brace, while Emmanuel Ohwoferia and Suleiman Ogodo got one goal each as the Supersand Eagles handed the North Africans the same treatment they got in the hands of the Super Eagles in two 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in October.With the Supersand Eagles having regained their buoyancy and marksmanship, debutants Tanzania are in the firing line as they take to the sands against Nigeria today starting from 2.30pm Egypt time (1.30pm Nigeria time). Coach Audu ‘Ejo’ Adamu is likely to throw another star player Victor Tale into the fray to ensure a baptism of fire for the East Africans, while paving the Nigerians’ route to the last four. The two finalists in Sharm El Sheikh will represent Africa at the 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup scheduled for Paraguay. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Džeko better than Ronaldo and Messi in the Competition for the Golden Shoe!

first_imgAlthough only half of the season has passed in the best leagues of the world, calculations have already started about who might win the Golden Shoe for the best striker of the current season this year. Edin Džeko is also mentioned among the candidates.At this moment, according to the latest data from October 15 this year, Edin Džeko is 12th in the race for the best striker of the world with 14.0 points. Seven other players, including Chelsea’s Diego Costa, have identical number of points as the BiH Diamond, which definitely announces the uncertain “matches” in which the players will fight for the Golden Shoe.What is interesting is that the only player above Edin Džeko on the list, in terms of the League of five, is Modeste from FC Köln, who is on the 11th place with seven scored goals and 14.0 points won, which is the score identical to the one of Džeko.Ten more players are above them two, but since the coefficient of the League of five is 2.0, unlike the coefficients 1.0 and 1.5, if he continues the great goal-getter performance this year Džeko might be on the top of the ranking for the Golden Shoe. The coefficient is very important because it is multiplied by the number of scored goals, which eventually gives the number of points that each player achieves.First on the table is Vitali Rodionov from the Bulgarian Borisov, who scored 14 goals in the league with a coefficient of 1.5 and has 21.0 points in total.In comparison with the best world football players of today, Džeko is better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Officially the best player of the world, the star of Barcelona Messi has 10.0 points with five goals scored, while Ronaldo has only 4.0 points with only two goals.This is another one in a row of successes of the BiH Diamond. Congratulations and lots of luck in the race for the best striker in the world!(Source: radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more

Five things learned from the Premier League

first_imgMan. United players celebrate. They beat Brighton 1-0 to close the gap on Man.CityLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City maintained their march towards the Premier League title with a gripping win at Huddersfield, while Ashley ensured Manchester United remain their closest rivals.Liverpool and Chelsea shared the spoils, but Alexis Sanchez lifted Arsenal.Here AFP Sport looks at five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:City a team for all seasonsTrailing to a Nicolas Otamendi own goal on a rain-lashed, freezing afternoon at Huddersfield, for Manchester City this was an acid test. The cynics who greeted Pep Guardiola’s arrival in England with taunts about the Spaniard not knowing what it takes to win in the league’s most inhospitable venues were about to start crowing. But City had the perfect response as Sergio Aguero equalised from the penalty spot before Raheem Sterling’s late winner moved the leaders eight points clear of second placed Manchester United. Guardiola admitted he was delighted with the way City had coped with the test. “The Premier League is so tough, now winter has come, we knew they were so aggressive so strong, but we are so happy for the way we won,” Guardiola said. Can anyone stop them now? Post-injury Hazard is back to his bestAn ankle injury sustained during the close season meant Eden Hazard did not make his first Premier League start until the last day in September, but having been gently eased back into action by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, he is now back to his devastating best. He was head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool, fully exploiting his licence to roam in support of lone striker Alvaro Morata by dropping deep to gather the ball before weaving past befuddled defenders, his touch so sure and precise as to be uncanny. Conte opted for a 3-5-1-1 system at Anfield, meaning an extra central midfielder played instead of a wide forward like Pedro and Willian, but thanks to the irrepressible Hazard, Chelsea’s counter-attacking play still brimmed with menace. Here’s our take on the game… #LIVCHEhttps://t.co/SGUfpmsWjL— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) November 25, 2017Spurs title bid is overTottenham won many admirers over the previous two seasons as they pushed for the Premier League title but this year’s challenge is all but over after a costly draw against managerless West Brom. Spurs’ record against the other members of the “Big Six” is poor but their inability to finish off less-exalted opponents has been equally costly this season. They have garnered just three points in home matches against Burnley, Swansea and West Brom and are now realistically too far off the pace. Asked after the match if the gap to leaders Manchester City was too big to bridge, Pochettino conceded: “Yes it is true.” When City won on Sunday to make it a 13-point gap, Pochettino’s worst fears were confirmed. He may have been denied today’s winning goal but @Youngy18 was still pleased with an important three points… pic.twitter.com/ywMRHYCRLd— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 25, 2017Sanchez ends away-day bluesOnly seconds remained at Turf Moor as Arsenal contemplated the extension of their miserable away record this season. Arsenal had earned just four points away from home this season and, with Mesut Ozil absent due to illness, they were labouring to break down a well-drilled Burnley defence. But Arsene Wenger’s side refused to accept their fate and Aaron Ramsey drew a needless shove from James Tarkowski deep into stoppage-time, earning a penalty that Alexis Sanchez slotted home. Arsenal are up to fourth place and encouragingly for Wenger, have now won all six league games in which both Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette have started.Important win today, Burnley didn’t make it easy for us but the lads kept going ?? #WeAreTheArsenal pic.twitter.com/7YAGFYT2MD— Per Mertesacker (@mertesacker) November 26, 2017center_img ?️ Mauricio gives his assessment of today’s 1-1 draw with West Brom at Wembley. pic.twitter.com/RtvPE1cT4m— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) November 25, 2017Ashley Young reinventedAshley Young joined Manchester United from Aston Villa in 2011 as a flying winger but has reinvented himself as a left wing-back and has forced his way into Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up, keeping out more specialist defenders. While never a prolific goalscorer for United, Young gives the team an extra attacking dimension, shown on Saturday when his shot midway through the second half found its way into Brighton’s net via a cruel deflection. “That was a tough one today, big 3 points in the end! Come on @premierleague…my shot was going on target, I’ve waited long enough for a goal,” Young tweeted. But the plea fell on deaf ears — it was marked down as a Lewis Dunk own goal.That was a tough one today, big 3 points in the end!

Grooming the future of tourism

first_imgCouncillor Willie van der Schyf addresses the graduating interns at the ceremony. The proud graduates received a certificate from Councillor Van der Schyf and Monique Griffith of the City of Johannesburg.(Images: Cadine Pillay) MEDIA CONTACTS • Lucky Sindane   Liaison officer,   Department of Economic Development   +27 76 862 4377 RELATED ARTICLES • Leading SA’s youth out of poverty • Education rights affirmed • Taking ballet to township kids • Inner city kids learn about film • Safeguarding our future leaders • New uniforms for needy pupilsCadine PillayThe City of Johannesburg’s (CoJ) economic development department has wrapped up its pilot tourism internship programme with pleasing results.Proud interns graduated from the programme at a ceremony held in Newtown on 15 March, receiving certificates to mark their efforts.The tourism internship programme was launched in August 2012 by councillor Ruby Mathang, a member of the Mayoral Committee for Economic Development. The programme was aimed at pupils who only had a matric qualification, as well as unemployed graduates, and proved so successful that it will be implemented again with Cathseta – the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority.The programme gave young people the opportunity to gain valuable work experience across a broad range of service providers in the tourism industry. These included hotels, guest houses, museums and tourist attractions. Of 146 starters, 109 candidates graduated from this internship.Offering young people work experience “I am extremely proud to say that we have received wonderful and positive feedback and reports from the tourism product owners, about the candidates’ work ethics and eagerness to learn,” said Monique Griffith, director of sector support at the city’s Department of Economic Development.As a result of their outstanding performance, some of the students received job offers from the establishments which hosted them. Some are upmarket and others cater for the everyday patron.These included Radisson Blue Hotel Sandton, Radisson Blue Hotel Gautrain, Booysens Hotel, Culinary Passion School Hospitality, Vaal Nests Boutique Hotel, The Elegant Lodge, Hospitality Ambassadors, Maropeng Visitor Centre and Hotel, City Lodge Group, Kwa Eden Accommodation and Conferencing, Riviera on the Vaal Hotel and Spa, Adler Museum of Medicine at Wits University, Department of Economic Development, Department of Community Development and Joburg Tourism Company.Mathang said there are a number of other programmes designed by CoJ and aimed at empowering young people – they include the youth entrepreneurship strategy and the skills development strategy as well as programmes such as the Recognition of Prior Learning programme, which has certified over 2 000 competent individuals and placed over 200 of them in the construction sector in the past three years, and the Leago Work Placement Programme, which aims to train 1 000 individuals and place over 500 young employees in the construction, ICT, media and communications and services sectors.Tackling youth unemployment with tourismYouth unemployment is a challenge not only in Johannesburg but in South Africa. In 2011, President Jacob Zuma set a target of 5-million jobs to be created by 2012. Last year only 80 000 new jobs were created.Figures from 2012 show that tourism supports one in every 12 jobs in South Africa, and domestic tourism contributed R20-billion (US$2.2-billion) to the national economy last year, which makes tourism a lucrative industry for young people to get into.More than five-million domestic trips were recorded in South Africa in the first quarter of 2012, injecting R5.2-billion ($564-million) to the economy. This is over R600-million ($65-million), or 13%, more than last year’s economic contribution over the same period.“As a regional economic hub and centre for business, Joburg plays a critical role in attracting business, retail and sports tourism – there lie your opportunities. The future of our country is in this room,” said Councillor Willie van der Schyf who addressed the interns before awarding their certificates.Van der Schyf went on to say that the role of city management was to dually support the interns and the industry by paying a monthly stipend to allow them to accumulate work experience whilst increasing their employability.He added, “Although the CoJ programme has ended, this does not mean the end for the 109 candidates who completed their internships. Cathseta will be taking on our interns and continuing with them by providing additional learnerships and internship opportunities.“last_img read more

One Couple’s Green-Home Adventure

first_imgUsing the “voice of experience” to explain the principals of green home construction Avrim Topel, a Delaware Realtor, and his wife, Vicki, say they’re familiar with the uncertainties and confusion that consumers – and even many real estate professionals – may struggle with when they start exploring the precepts, costs, and potential benefits of building a green home.They built a green home for themselves, they say, and faced the issues firsthand. But the home eventually earned LEED Silver certification, and the Topels became green-home advocates in the process. They have since written a short book and produced a 25-minute video that highlights their experiences and the expertise of the builder, architects, and engineers who worked on their home.Called Green Beginnings: The Story of How We Built Our Green & Sustainable Home, the book-and-DVD set is intended as a primer for prospective owners of green homes, and for any other construction or real estate professional looking for a consumer perspective on the green-home phenomenon.The authors say they used USGBC’s LEED for Homes rating criteria to help explain the features and benefits associated with green homes. “Delving beyond the physical structure, the content also reveals the USGBC’s recommended integrative team approach to design and construction and exemplifies how consumers and professionals are adapting to change in the interest of health, the environment, conservation, and protecting our natural resources.”The book-and-DVD set is available for about $60 through the authors’ “Green Beginnings Consulting” website.last_img read more

Ducting HRVs and ERVs

first_img Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img Here at GBA, we have consistently advised readers who plan to install a heat-recovery ventilator (HRV) or an energy-recovery ventilator (ERV) to install dedicated ventilation ductwork rather than trying to distribute ventilation air through their heating and cooling ducts. That advice won’t seem particularly burdensome if your house doesn’t have any heating and cooling ducts — as is typical in a home with ductless minisplits or a hydronic heating system and no central air conditioning.But if your house already has heating and cooling ducts, you may instinctively rebel at GBA’s advice, muttering, “Why can’t I use the ducts that I’ve already got?”Here are the reasons:In the past, I often endorsed the use of exhaust-only ventilation systems in small homes with simple floor plans. Increasingly, however, I’ve become convinced that we need to pay better attention to indoor air quality, especially in bedrooms. It turns out that bedrooms in homes with exhaust-only ventilation systems usually don’t get enough fresh air. So anyone who cares about bedroom air quality probably needs an HRV or ERV with dedicated ventilation ductwork.If your HRV has dedicated ventilation ductwork — a type of ventilation system that is sometimes called a “fully ducted” system — the HRV will usually deliver fresh air to the living room and bedrooms, while simultaneously exhausting stale air from bathrooms (and sometimes from the laundry room or kitchen). With fully ducted systems, fresh air delivery and stale air extraction happen in the rooms where the system designer intends these events to occur. These systems use less energy than systems connected to heating or cooling ductwork, and they are far easier to commission and balance.If you intend to pull stale air from your kitchen, remember that a range hood should never be connected to… last_img read more
