The Single Bench of Justice Rajiv Shakdher noted that the Controller General had given a very small window in terms of timeframe to file the requisite documents and fees. The disputed order of the CGPDT had stipulated the following: “Whereas this office has issued Public Notices regarding the timelines/periods as prescribed under the IP Acts AND Rules administered by the O/o CGPDTM towards completion of various acts/proceedings, filing of reply/document, payment of fees, etc. in the matters of any IP applications, falling due between the lockdown period, i.e. 25th March, 2020 to 3rd May, 2020, in accordance with section 10 of the General Clauses Act, 1897. Whereas, the lockdown period has been extended to further period of two weeks, i.e. till 17th May, 2020 by GoI, MHA ORDER dated 1st May, 2020. Even though as per guidelines annexed with the order of MHA, the IP Offices are functional (with reduced strength), substantive limitations/restrictions on the movement of public and functioning of private offices in the Red Zones (Hotspots), are still in place. Therefore, considering the fact that all the IP offices in India are located in Red Zones (Hotspots), the due dates, with respect to timelines/periods prescribed under the IP Acts and Rules administered by the O/o CGPDTM towards completion of various acts/proceedings, filing of any reply/document, payment of fees, etc. in the matters of any IP applications filed with the offices under the administrative control of O/o CGPDTM, falling due between the above said lockdown period shall be 18th May, 2020. Challenging the said order, Senior Advocate Chander M Lall that the said order is contrary to the order passed by the Supreme Court in a suo moto matter titled RE: COGNIZANCE FOR EXTENSION OF LIMITATION, as much as protection against triggering of the period of limitation both under general and special laws,whether condonable or not, is to kick in from 15.03.2020 and not from 25.03.2020 as is the stand taken by the CGPDTM. While claiming that the said deadline imposes onerous burden both on the litigants as well as their advocates, Mr Lall further argued that it would be difficult for the litigants and the advocates to access their files and ensure that the filings as per prescribed procedure are made on 18.05.2020, when the lockdown itself, as it stands today, will get lifted only on 17.05.2020. While taking these arguments into consideration, the court highlighted that no Court, Tribunal or any authority can act contrary to the order of the Supreme Court dated 23.03.2020 as the same has been passed by the apex court while exercising its powers under Articles 141 and 142 of the Constitution. Therefore, while suspending the operation of the order dated May 04, the court directed CGPDTM to function as per the directions issued by the Supreme Court in its order dated March 23.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Professor who called Barbara Bush an ‘amazing racist’ won’t be disciplined

first_imgBrendan Smialowski/Getty Images(FRESNO, Calif.) — The Fresno State University professor who described the late Barbara Bush as an “amazing racist” on Twitter last week won’t be punished, the university’s president, Joseph Castro, announced Tuesday.Jarrar then hit back at those who criticized her comments and called for her ousting, saying that she “will never be fired” because she is a tenured professor.Jarrar, a lecturer in the university’s English department, has since made her Twitter account private.Initially, Castro said the university shared “the deep concerns” over Jarrar’s comments, saying that she made them as a “private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State.”“Professor Jarrar’s expressed personal views and commentary are obviously contrary to the core values of our university, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a sincere commitment to mutual understanding and progress,” Castro said.On Wednesday, Castro said that while the issue “raised many important questions about the scope of free speech,” the university “does not have justification to support taking any disciplinary action” against Jarrar.“Professor Jarrar’s conduct was insensitive, inappropriate and an embarrassment to the university,” he said. “I know her comments have angered many in our community and impacted our students. Let me be clear, on campus and whenever we are representing the university, I expect all of us to engage in respectful dialogue.”After the university “carefully reviewed the facts,” officials decided that Jarrar did not violate any university policies and was speaking in a private capacity, although speaking on a public matter.Castro also emphasized that it is because of the First Amendment, not her tenure, that Jarrar will not be punished.“This private action is an issue of free speech and not related to her job or tenure,” Castro said.Castro had previously told The Fresno Bee that a “professor with tenure does not have blanket protection to say and do what they wish.”Jarrar is on leave for the spring semester, which she had previously requested before the incident occurred, according to the statement.Jarrar did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment, but she told New York magazine that she “felt compelled to speak up” because she wants people to “remember history.”“I want people to know that our country’s actions don’t just disappear; they have real, negative consequences,” she told the magazine.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

NYPD detectives actively hunting looters, vandals during protests

first_imgtillsonburg/iStockBy JOSH MARGOLIN and AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The New York Police Department’s Intelligence Bureau is collecting license plate numbers from vehicles that carried vandals, looters and thieves around Manhattan in the last two days, a police official told ABC News.Some of those already being tracked down were seen outside storefronts with sledgehammers, crowbars and power tools in brazen shows of planning and organization as they used the ongoing protests over the death of George Floyd as cover for their crimes.One of the numerous police reports from eyewitnesses came from Carla Murphy, who lives in Chelsea.Murphy, in an interview Tuesday, said she started hearing commotion from mobs of people along her street and neighboring streets about 10:30 p.m. Monday night. She first watched from her building and then went down to the street and saw organized groups of people working together to break in to store after store in the West Side neighborhood.“Cars would drive up, let off the looters, unload power tools and suitcases and then the cars would drive away,” she said. “Then the cars would come back pick them up and then drive off to the next spot. They seemed to know exactly where they were going. Some of the people were local, but there were a lot of out-of-towners.”Murphy said she saw license plates from New Jersey and Pennsylvania and drivers had not even tried to hide their tags.By the time Murphy said she got through to 911, dispatchers said they would send police but they were swamped. She then went to the 10th Precinct, where she said a cop told her, “Yeah, we’re getting the resources to get over there.”They didn’t show up until 1 a.m., she said.Officials acknowledged what was obvious from live news reports: They were overwhelmed as the looting broke out Monday night. But by Tuesday night, police brass had already put out orders to use the extraordinary technological arsenal available to the NYPD to hunt down those who turned protests into open season on merchants from local liquor stores to Macy’s flagship.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was critical of the NYPD’s response to looting during a press conference Tuesday.“The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night. I believe that,” Cuomo said. “The police in New York City were not effective in doing their job last night. Period.”Detectives in New York City have access to a wide network of city-owned license-plate readers and security cameras on top of thousands of private-sector surveillance systems that are looped in to the NYPD architecture. Investigators are also collecting surveillance images from as many vandalized and looted stores as possible as they try to identify the suspects.The culprits are believed to be a combination of outside agitators, career criminals and gang members. Police said many of the perpetrators seemed to display a talent for staying a step ahead of cops with an elaborate scouting and signaling system built on text messages, social media apps and lookouts.

Oxford Students Blogging Brazil for the BBC

first_imgA group of Oxford students have had their travel writing, based on their experiences in Brazil, featured as a blog on the BBC website.Covering controversial issues within Brazilian culture and society, from class segregation to the gender inequalities of Machismo, the pieces were written by a group mostly comprising of third year modern language students on their year abroad.The blog is named ‘Para Ingles Ver’ or ‘For the English to see’, an idiom which roughly translates as ‘for the sake of appearances’. It has attracted considerable online attention, particularly from those affected by the issues it discusses, as the enthusiastic responses in the comment section demonstrate. One reader went as far as to give one of the bloggers his phone number in reaction to their criticism of macho behaviour.For one of the group, Lily Green, a Spanish and Portuguese student at St Peter’s, the comments are the best part of the blog. “The differing opinions, the frustration, the praise, the despair, the adoration – it all perfectly reflects how it is when you talk face-to-face with Brazilians about their country.”Having only recently returned from her five month stay in Brazil, Lily told Cherwell about her time there. “I spent the first four months in Recife in the North East because I wanted to really sink into the day to day. The humdrum stuff was the best: catching the bus, making dinner with friends, complaining about the weather.”Another blogger, Yara Rodrigues Fowler, who is half Brazilian, writes about time spent back home over Christmas. In working for the BBC, she said, “I have learned how to write in my second mother tongue in a personal and yet not too informal way.”Loukia Koumia, a student departing for Brazil, hopes that blogging will “encourage me to soak in as much culture as I can.”last_img read more

Ocean City Resident Wins Mr. Mature America 2018

first_imgNancy Wilson and Bonnie Cotellese, both of Ocean City, go to the Mr. Mature America pageant every year and love it.Linda Butler, Carol Marceluk and Bonnie Wertz, of Ocean City, have some fun.Mr. Mature America 2017 Matthew Allen leads the contestants in the opening act.Contestant Richard Lalena sings “Just a Gigolo.” Bill Quain is joined back stage by his wife Jeanne after he wins Mr. Mature America 2018. By Maddy VitaleThey strutted, sauntered, scooted and did their best sashays holding heavy hams.But in the end, there could be only one Mr. Mature America – one senior who proved to the judges and the audience that filled the Music Pier Saturday night – that you are never too old show ’em what you got.Contestants ranged in age from 58 to 73. The contestant who took home the sash and crown, was Bill Quain, 65, of Ocean City, who played the ukulele and sang “On The Way To Cape May.”Bill Quain gets the audience to participate in “On The Way To Cape May.”“I had a really good feeling about it,” Quain, a father of two, said of his win, while standing alongside his wife Jeanne. “I just liked everyone so much. The other guys were so good to me.”Quain, who is blind, was assisted on and off the stage by a woman. When he answered a pageant question about something he has learned in life, he said that having a disability, he sometimes forgets other people have problems too. It is something he should be mindful of, he said. His remarks were met by loud applause. First runner up John Walton gives the audience his best Beatles rendition.When it came to the top guys, the locals won out. Contestant John Walton, 61, of Ocean City, who wore a blue robe, pulled out a puppet and sang the Beatles tune from the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, “With a Little Help From My Friends,” was first runner up.Second runner up Joel Fogel, 73, of Somers Point, entertained the audience with his classical piano performance and during his interview said the most exciting thing he has ever done was riding his motorcycle to Alaska.  The audience loves Erik Estrada as master of ceremonies, who jokes throughout the show.TV personality Erik Estrada, 69, best known for his role on the police show “CHiPS” from the 1977-83, combined the perfect blend of finesse, suaveness and comedy as master of ceremonies, joking with the contestants and flashing that perfect smile. At times, he did a bit of hip movements that sent some audience members into laughter and there was that occasional face-fanning. Estrada had some definite competition when it came to smooth moves, when reigning Mr. Mature America 2017 Matthew Allen, 65, of Newtown, Pa. performed Frank Sinatra’s hit, “The Way You Look Tonight.”As Allen’s last encore as title holder was coming to an end, he glided across the stage with some ballroom dance moves.Audience members swooned. Earlier, however, Allen brought back the act that helped him become Mr. Mature America. He performed “I Got You Babe” doing both Sonny and Cher renditions.Matthew Allen, Mr. Mature America 2017, couldn’t leave his reign without doing one last Sonny and Cher skit.Throughout the night, Estrada entertained the audience with laughter and a lot of off-the-cuff jokes.After contestant Jay Keally, 59, of Ocean City recited a poem about love, Estrada asked the audience, “Does anyone need a hug after contestant 2?”Pageant Director Michael Hartman, who is Ocean City’s special events coordinator, said of the day which began with the jam-packed successful Doo-Dah Parade of which Estrada was the Grand Marshal. Pageant Director Michael Hartman says Ocean City really started the season off right.“We really ushered in 2018 season here in Ocean City. I think everyone was ready for sun and fun,” Hartman said.He added that Estrada’s manager told him that the Mr. Mature America contest was tailor-made for him to host. “He asked if we make it up for him,” Hartman said of the show which is in its fifth year.Mayor Jay Gillian and Erik Estrada joke before the mayor presents the master of ceremonies with a memento.Earlier in the night, Mayor Jay Gillian presented Estrada with a piece of the Boardwalk as a memento of being in Ocean City. Estrada said he loves it in Ocean City and has enjoyed his visit. Ocean City residents Nancy Wilson and Bonnie Cotellese have been coming to the show every year since the beginning because it is so much fun.“It is very entertaining. There are a lot of laughs,” Wilson said. Cotellese added, “It is great entertaining. It is just very enjoyable.”last_img read more

Students from Cambridge Housing Authority’s The Work Force Program spend day on Harvard campus

first_imgFor the second year in a row, students from the Cambridge Housing Authority’s (CHA) The Work Force Program recently visited Harvard, in an effort to help inspire students to accomplish their educational aspirations by demonstrating that college is an attainable goal.The students were greeted by Dr. Irvin Scott, from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.Scott explained the importance of maintaining a “growth mindset.” The idea, he explained, is that everyone — no matter their background — can “change and grow through application and experience.”  He stressed the importance of living life being mindful of that belief.Students ate at Annenberg Hall, and were given the option of choosing one of two Harvard “classes” to attend. Some chose to study Marine Biology with Pete Girguis, Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. Others chose to learn about U.S./Russian relations from staff at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies.“For the students to see professors and students at Harvard who looked like them, and came from background similar to theirs, was extremely powerful,” said Marisa Lopez, a senior teacher counselor at CHA. “Hearing from the students, the professors, and Dr. Scott made Harvard seem – well different. To know that these people wanted to come and take time out of their busy days – because they care enough about inspiring kids to achieve – says volumes about themselves – and about Harvard. Our students have all the skill and potential in the world, and the more they hear that, the better. Today they heard it.”last_img read more
