Unless Live-streaming Sees Light Of The Day, Absence Of Records Of Oral Proceedings Would Continue To Bedevil The System: Supreme Court

first_imgTop StoriesUnless Live-streaming Sees Light Of The Day, Absence Of Records Of Oral Proceedings Would Continue To Bedevil The System: Supreme Court LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK7 May 2021 4:30 AMShare This – xUnless live-streaming and archival of court proceedings sees the light of the day the absence of records of oral proceedings would continue to bedevil the system, the Supreme Court bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud remarked in the judgment disposing Election Commission of India’s petition challenging oral remarks made by Madras High Court.The Court also noted that three years have elapsed since the decision in Swapnil Tripathi vs Supreme Court of India (2018) 10 SCC 639 [ which highlighted the importance of live streaming of judicial proceedings].The bench, also comprising Justice MR Shah noted that cases before the courts are vital sources of public information about the activities of the legislature and the executive and serves an educational purpose as well. The court becomes a platform for citizens to know how the practical application of the law impacts upon their rights, the court noted.The Court further observed that several courts across the world, including the US Supreme Court, the UK Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal of the UK and the International Criminal Court enable public viewership of proceedings through live streaming or other suitable open access methodology. The Gujarat High Court also recently introduced live streaming of its proceedings, in a bid to enhance public participation in the dispensation of justice, it noted.In Swapnil Tripathi, three judge bench headed by then CJI Dipak Misra held that the Court proceedings shall be live-streamed in the larger public interest. Live streaming is for cases of constitutional and national importance, barring those involving juveniles, cases of sexual assault, matrimonial issues. The court also ordered that to give full effect to the process of live-streaming, advocates addressing the Bench, and judges addressing the Bar, must use microphones while addressing the court. The live streaming would be with prior consent of all parties concerned and if there is no unanimity, the court concerned will take the decision which shall not be open to appeal. The court will have copyright over the broadcasted content. There will also be reasonable time gap between the proceedings and streaming to ensure that anything which ought not be made public can be edited.””Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Live-streaming as an extension of the principle of open courts will ensure that the interface between a court hearing with virtual reality will result in the dissemination of information in the widest possible sense, imparting transparency and accountability to the judicial process” the court had observed.In October last year, the Court dodged detailed queries raised under the Right to Information Act seeking reasons for the non-implementation of live-streaming of court proceedings by giving an evasive reply that the “matter is under the consideration of the Registry”. Last Month, Justice DY Chandrachud said that the e-committee of the top Court is in the process of finalizing its rules for live streaming of court proceedings. In the meanwhile, Gujarat High Court started live streaming of Court proceedings on YouTube from October 26, 2020.

Dr. Bivens talks straight to PCHS students

And, it takes setting goals and working hard to attain them. There will be pitfalls along the way so you will have to believe in yourself even when no one else does. If you want it; work for it.”Sometimes, God gives people talents they don’t utilize, Bivins said. Then God gives others the desire and determination to overcome a lack of talent by working hard and never losing sight of their goals.

FBI sees spike in threat tips following El Paso, Dayton mass shootings

first_imgkrblokhin/iStock(WASHINGTON) — The FBI said Monday it has seen a significant surge in the number of calls to its threat tip line following the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings earlier this month, a bureau official told ABC News Monday.“In the first week in August, the FBI saw an increase in tips submitted to the National Threat Operations Center,” the FBI said in a statement. “Such increases are often observed after major incidents.”On average, the official said, the FBI receives approximately 22,000 tip calls per week to the NTOC.In the weeks following the El Paso and Dayton shootings, that number has been up by 10-15,000 tip calls each week.In the first week of August alone, the official said, the FBI received more than 38,000 tip calls to the NTOC.The official noted that not all of the tips the FBI receives are actionable, and said the bureau was not able to provide a breakdown of how many tips turn into FBI investigations.“What that number does show is that people are calling the FBI more, especially during that first week,” the official said.According to an analysis by ABC News last week, at least 14 individuals were arrested in a 20-day span following the El Paso and Dayton shootings who local, state or federal law enforcement have said were plotting or expressing interest in carrying out mass attacks.While only a few were found to have expressed a direct interest in the El Paso or Dayton shooters, the arrests indicate that law enforcement is taking a much more aggressive posture in addressing online threats and tips relayed to them regarding possible mass shootings. According to court filings reviewed by ABC News, several of the suspects arrested were under investigation by law enforcement prior to this month’s mass shootings.“As always, the FBI encourages the public to remain vigilant and report any and all suspicious activity to law enforcement immediately,” the bureau said in a statement. “Tips pertaining to violations of federal law or threats to national security can be submitted to the FBI by calling local Field Offices or 1-800-Call-FBI, or online at www.tips.fbi.gov.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Low-temperature protein metabolism: seasonal changes in protein synthesis and RNA dynamics in the Antarctic limpet Nacella concinna Strebel 1908

first_imgProtein synthesis is a fundamental and energetically expensive physiological process in all living organisms. Very few studies have examined the specific challenges of manufacturing proteins at low ambient temperatures. At high southern latitudes, water temperatures are continually below or near freezing and are highly stable, while food availability is very seasonal. To examine the effects of low temperature and a highly seasonal food supply on protein metabolism, we have measured whole. body protein synthesis, RNA concentrations, RNA:protein ratios and RNA translational efficiencies in the Antarctic limpet Nacella concinna at four times of the year. From summer to winter, protein synthesis rates decreased by 52%, RNA concentrations decreased by 55% and RNA:protein ratios decreased by 68%, while RNA translational efficiencies were low and very variable. Protein synthesis rates in N. concinna approached those measured in temperate mussels, while RNA:protein ratios were considerably higher than in temperate species. Interspecific comparisons show that species living at low temperatures have elevated RNA:protein ratios, which are probably needed to counteract a thermally induced reduction in RNA translational efficiency. Calculations using theoretical energetic costs of protein synthesis suggest that Antarctic species may allocate a larger proportion of their metabolic budget to protein synthesis than do temperate or tropical species.last_img read more

Yes, it’s YOPA!

first_imgHome » News » Yes, it’s YOPA! previous nextProducts & ServicesYes, it’s YOPA!Another online/hybrid agency prepares for national roll-out this month.The Negotiator14th January 20160835 Views Hybrid estate agency YOPA is gearing up for a national roll-out this month.The estate agency is launching across England and Wales after reporting successful pre-Christmas pilots in the Granada and Meridian regions.YOPA says its combination of Local Property Managers (LPMs) and cutting-edge industry technology is proving a hit with vendors.One LPM operating in the North West sold three properties in three days before Christmas. YOPA had been marketing all three for less than two weeks and two of them had previously been on the market with traditional high street agents.YOPA – www.yopa.co.uk – says that it is regularly saving its customers an average of £5,348 on estate agent fees by charging vendors a flat fee of just £780.The firm, which has its head office in London, has so far hired over 100 LPMs and will have a further 60 in place by the summer. A number of them have previously worked for some of the biggest names in the estate agency industry.YOPA’s four founders – Joint Managing Directors Daniel Attia and Andrew Barclay, Finance Director Alistair Barclay and Chief Marketing Officer David Jacobs, say that its national roll-out will include a major advertising campaign across TV, radio, printed media and online as well as other high-profile marketing activity.Daniel Attia (left) said, “We conducted six-week regional launches in the Granada and Meridian regions before Christmas and the consumer response has been overwhelmingly positive.“Vendors who have used YOPA tell us they like the combination of experienced Local Property Managers who know their territories and the powerful technology that supports their activity.“There are plenty of high street agents and online agents but YOPA is genuinely revolutionising the way people buy and sell homes by giving consumers a complete service fit for the 21st century.“In addition to a growing number of instructions in the two test regions, we have also been taking enquiries from other regions who have heard about the service we can offer.“We had no hesitation in deciding to move quickly from the pilots to a full national roll-out this month.”hybrid estate agency online agency Local Property Managers cutting-edge industry technology YOPA January 14, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Press release: Foreign Secretary call with French counterpart on Syria: 9 April 2018

first_img Follow the Foreign Office on Twitter @foreignoffice and Facebook Media enquiries Further information Follow the Foreign Secretary on Twitter @BorisJohnson and Facebook For journalists Follow the Foreign Office on Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn The Foreign Secretary has this morning spoken to his French counterpart, Jean-Yves Le Drian, about the horrific attack in Douma, Syria on Saturday and ahead of an emergency session of the United Nations later today, which was called for by the UK alongside allies. Speaking to Le Drian, the Foreign Secretary underlined the urgent need to investigate what had happened in Douma and to ensure a strong and robust international response. They noted that international investigators mandated by the UN Security Council had found the Asad regime responsible for using poison gas in at least 4 separate attacks since 2014 and agreed that those responsible for this attack must be held to account. They both condemned the use of chemical weapons by anyone anywhere and they agreed to work together to stand up for the Chemical Weapons Convention and to ensure that there was no impunity for those that use such barbaric weapons. They agreed that today’s meeting of the United Nations Security Council in New York would be an important next step in determining the international response and that a full range of options should be on the table.
