The Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Ravindra V. Ghuge was hearing the plea filed by one Sanjay Bhaskarrao Kale who sought inclusion of above-mentioned laws as compulsory subjects of education at high level of studies, i.e., Undergraduate and Post-Graduate courses. Interestingly, the bench, in its order, quoted the Foreword (penned by former Chief Justice Y. V. Chandrachud) to Justice K. K. Mathew’s book ‘Democracy, Equality and Freedom’ (edited by Dr. Upendra Baxi) The Court noted that his Lordship has expressed that “in our present dispensation, a Judge cannot, except for honourable exceptions, lay plausible claim of legal scholarship.” The Bench further said, “We certainly are not exceptions and, therefore, would never dream of claiming legal or any other scholarship. Why we say so is because of the nature of concern expressed in this PIL petition.” The Court underlined that Judges have to primarily don the hat of an adjudicator and having regard to the manifold activities in relation to the administrative work, Judges also don other hats. Significantly, the Court said, “An attempt is made by the petitioner by presenting this Public Interest Litigation to make us don the hat of an academician too and interference in academic matters, a field of activity where we have little or no expertise. There could be a judicial over-reach and stepping into the domain of the other organs of the State, if we were to entertain the prayers in this PIL petition.” Lastly, the Court said that the matter must be left to the discretion of the experts in the educational field and the petitioner was granted leave to pursue his remedy before such authorities.Click Here To Download Order/JudgmentRead Order/JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Jamaica undecided about use of “plantation white sugar”

first_imgThe Jamaica government says it has no intention of forcing upon manufacturers the use of plantation white sugar as a substitute for refined sugar in the manufacturing process.“It’s not the government’s intention to impose any strictures in promoting what, at this stage, is just a theory. It is going to depend largely on what you the manufacturers say. This is not something that Government wants to force on you. Nothing of the kind,” said Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Karl Samuda.Samuda said no decision will be taken without agreement from members of the manufacturing sector.Regional consultationsA statement from the Ministry noted that the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) has asked the Sugar Association of the Caribbean to conduct regional consultations with manufacturers who use refined sugar in their manufacturing processes.Currently, imported refined sugar is used in the manufacturing trade to make items such as sugary drinks and baked goods.The statement noted while it is possible to use the less refined, regionally made plantation white sugar for this purpose, it will cost manufacturers more to do so.Addressing a stakeholder’s meeting earlier this week, Samuda noted that the move to replace refined sugar with plantation white could prove beneficial to the region in the long term. But he assured that the government will work to find a solution that will mutually benefit the local sugar industry and manufacturers.last_img read more

Glendale approaches its 100th anniversary of cityhood

first_img The ranch was broken up as the fortunes of the Verdugo family fell in the 1800s. By 1887, a small community called Glendale had established itself around what is now the Glendale Avenue-Wilson Avenue area. The city fathers kept the Glendale name when the city was incorporated. Late in the 1920s, the Grand Central Air Terminal had opened in Glendale as the first airport in the Los Angeles region. In July 1929, Charles Lindbergh flew out of Grand Central to New York, establishing America’s first regularly scheduled transcontinental airline service. But Glendale’s history also included periods current residents deplore. Decades before the civil-rights movement, restrictive real estate covenants prevented blacks from owning land in the city. In the 1960s, Glendale became the western headquarters of the American Nazi Party, which later moved to El Monte and operated there through the 1970s. “There was an attempt (by the Nazi party) to establish headquarters here, and the city was unfortunately tarred with a reputation for harboring racism and prejudice,” said Arlene Vidor, president of the Glendale Historical Society. “And this (reputation) is something that those of us who feel the city gets its strength from its diversity are certainly overcoming.” Glendale is also where some touchstones of American and Southern California culture have their roots. Hollywood legend John Wayne, who was then known as Marion Morrison, went to Glendale High School in the 1920s. And Southern California eatery Bob’s Big Boy got its start in Glendale in 1936, when Robert C. Wian opened his pantry in the city. In 1976, the Glendale Galleria opened and became a regional draw for shoppers. The city also became headquarters of Nestle USA, the International House of Pancakes and DreamWorks. Another change came in the 1970s through the 1990s, with several waves of Armenian immigration to Glendale. It is estimated that 45 percent of the city’s residents are of Armenian descent, and there have been tensions over the years as the Armenian-American population grew in Glendale. “I see these tensions as the kinds of tensions that other immigrant groups went through,” said Levon Marashlian, who teaches history, political science and ethics at Glendale Community College. Irish newcomers, for example, encountered discrimination in their first big wave of U.S. immigration to the East Coast in the 19th century, he noted. “So in the process of blending in and assimilating, (there) is that period between when you are a fresh immigrant and when you are an acculturated American” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The 1918 annexation of Tropico, an agricultural community to Glendale’s southwest that was famous for its strawberries, was key to Glendale’s growth. Glendale’s population quickly grew from 13,756 in 1920 to 62,736 in 1930. During the 1920s, Glendale called itself the fastest growing city in America, according to the Web site for the Glendale Historical Society. By the city’s 50th anniversary in 1956, there were 115,000 residents. The area that is now Glendale was once inhabited by the Tongva tribe of American Indians. Later, during Spanish rule, Jose Maria Verdugo received permission from the Spanish governor in 1784 to establish Rancho San Rafael in the area. GLENDALE – One hundred years ago, Glendale rolled toward cityhood with a streetcar line that passed through open ranch land and stretched to its northern end at a bucolic tourist destination called Casa Verdugo. Now, the Jewel City of Glendale has more than 200,000 residents and is headquarters for some major corporations. Also home to Southern California’s largest Armenian-American community, it has become one of the most diverse cities in the United States. The area was mostly undeveloped ranch land when capitalist Leslie Brand and city father Edgar Goode worked to bring a Pacific Electric streetcar line to Glendale. The city was incorporated in February 1906, nearly two years after the Pacific Electric line started operating, connecting the area to Los Angeles. Brand, who acquired the rail right of way along what is now Brand Boulevard, profited handsomely by selling off land he owned around the rail line, which spiked in value after the streetcars started running. last_img read more

QPR fans on Twitter react to latest defeat

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesQPR fans on Twitter have been reacting to another away defeat – and many are increasingly unhappy with Ian Holloway.Rangers are yet to win away this season and the 2-0 reverse at Derby was their third loss in a row.Manager Holloway, who presided over two six-game losing runs after taking over last season, stood by his tactics for the Derby game.But many supporters feel he has been getting it wrong – and some believe another change of manager is needed.How can you stand by your tactics when youve not won away from home since February— Mark (@duddaz87) November 22, 2017Please don’t defend your game plan Ollie.It was negative and showed no effort to win a football match against mediocre opposition.— Greg Sangwine (@GSangwine) November 22, 2017The problem with Ollie is that he shifts from the sublime to the ridiculous & the lack of consistency is killing us.

Exercise keeps the mind sharp in over-50s: study

first_imgMelbourne, Apr 25 (PTI) Are you over 50 and showing signs of cognitive decline? Then doing moderate exercise several times a week is the best way to keep your mind sharp, research suggests.Thinking and memory skills were most improved when people exercised the heart and muscles on a regular basis, a review of 39 studies found.This remained true in those who already showed signs of cognitive decline.Taking up exercise at any age was worthwhile for the mind and body, the BBC quoted Australian researchers as saying.Exercises such as Tai Chi were recommended for people over the age of 50 who could not manage other more challenging forms of exercise, the study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine said.Physical activity has long been known to reduce the risk of a number of diseases, including type-2 diabetes and some cancers, and it is thought to play a role in warding off the brains natural decline as we enter middle age.The theory is that through exercise the brain receives a greater supply of blood, oxygen and nutrients that boost its health as well as a growth hormone that helps the formation of new neurons and connections.In this analysis of previous studies, researchers from the University of Canberra looked at the effects of at least four weeks of structured physical exercise on the brain function of adults.In a variety of brain tests, they found evidence of aerobic exercise improving cognitive abilities, such as thinking, reading, learning and reasoning, while muscle training – for example, using weights – had a significant effect on memory and the brains ability to plan and organise, the so-called executive functions.advertisementJoe Northey, study author and researcher from the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise at Canberra, said the findings were convincing enough to enable both types of exercise to be prescribed to improve brain health in the over-50s.”Even if you are doing moderate exercise only once or twice a week there are still improvements in cognitive function, but the improvements were better the more exercise was done,” he said.He said people should be able to hold a conversation while doing moderate exercise.Dr Justin Varney, lead for adult health and wellbeing at Public Health England, said any physical activity was good for brain and body.”Whilst every 10 minutes of exercise provides some benefit, doing 150 minutes a week cuts the chances of depression and dementia by a third, and boosts mental health at any age.”Doing both aerobic and strengthening exercises leads to a greater variety of health benefits,” Varney said.Dr Dean Burnett, lecturer in neuroscience and psychiatry at Cardiff University, said the study gave a clearer picture of how exercise affected the brain – but there were still issues.”It could lead to increased pressure for the 50-plus age group to exercise more in order to stay mentally healthy, which is good advice but also overlooks the fact that as we age its increasingly difficult to engage in physical activity, as our bodies are simply less capable of it,” he said.
