Malviya has been accused of mocking the Congress leaders, in response to a comment made by Sonia Gandhi that the prompt caution given by Rahul led to timely arrangement of health infrastructure in the Bhilwara city of Rajasthan, to battle the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. “Sonia Gandhi claims Bhilwara tested 22 lakh people due to Rahul’s warning! Wherever there is Rahul, can exaggeration and maths blunder be behind?,” Malviya had tweeted. In the aftermath of the tweet, the local police in the Hanumangarh Town had registered a FIR against Malviya and the party president JP Nadda. While the operation of FIR against Nadda was stayed by a single judge-Bench of Justice Dr. Pushpendra Singh Bhati yesterday, similar relief was granted to Malviya today by the bench of Justice Vinit Kumar Mathur. “Effect and operation of the FIR No.216/2020 registered with Police Station Hanumangarh Town, Hanumangarh alongwith entire proceedings pursuant thereto qua the present petitioner shall remain stayed,” Justice Mathur ordered. Malviya’s counsel had argued that he had merely re-tweeted the contents of the article/ news item published in The Print Magazine and such no case was made out against the Petitioner. Meanwhile, the public prosecutor representing the state sought time to seek instructions and file a reply in the matter. The matter is now listed, along with Nadda’s pending petition, on July 10. Pertinently, Nadda had argued the impugned tweet was posted from Malviya’s personal account and Nadda had no role in the same, whatsoever. Both the petitions have been filed seeking quashing of the FIR.Picture Courtesy: The Hindu Case Details: Case Title: Amit Malviya v.

They have stated that the statements made are untrue and were made with an intent to gain political mileage and leverage within his own political party.According to the Waikar’s, amidst the current issue surrounding Anvay Naik’s suicide, these stories have been cooked up by Somaiya to divert focus from actual perpetrators. The ‘baseless allegations’ have been made to indirectly target the current Maharashtra leadership for his own political gain as he is losing presence in his own political party.The plaintiffs in their suit have noted that statements were made by Somaiya with allegations against Waikar and Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray alleging that they obtained Anvay Naik’s Korlai properties at price less than the market price but the same wasn’t included in the election affidavit.According to Waikar, Somaiya has made the following allegations against him leveling unsubstantiated and false statements on various platforms:• Alleging non declaration of their assets and giving false information on oath before the election commission.• Alleging that 19 bungalows have been built on the Korlai plot of land for commercial purposes • Alleging that benefit of 25 crores was received by Waikar against BMC offering 200 crore development right to Mr Avinash Bhosale and Shahid Balwa.The suit has also made note of statements made by Somaiya against Manisha Waikar and Rashmi Thackeray alleging possibility of their involvement in alleged ‘torture and targeting’ of Arnab Goswami.According to the Waikar’s , they have an extensive reputation and goodwill in the society and the statements made by Somaiya is an attempt to rope them in a ugly pool of false statements and such statements are also a modus operandi used by him against many others to cause harassment and unsettle them.The plaintiffs have argued that Somaiya’s statements has caused them serious unbearable mental agony, financial losses and irreparable loss to their reputations which they created through hard work, perseverance by spending their own sweat and blood. As a result of his statements and false rumours, the general public has started doubting their honesty.According to the plaintiffs, Somaiya has attempted to falsely implicate them in a false criminal case filed before Revdanda police station. He has used words like ‘shanka’ to create doubts in minds of the masses.The plaintiffs have therefore contended that their reputation has been maligned by the alleged defamatory statements and irreparable damage has been caused to them entitling them to a damage of 100 crores, along with interest at rate of 18% from date of suit until payment or realisation.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Your local health and human services news is made possible with support from: Tagged: andrew cuomo, Coronavirus, COVID-19, mask mandate, tompkins county, vaccination TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y.—Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the end of New York’s mask mandate, beginning on Wednesday, May 19. The move follows last week’s announcement by the Centers for Disease Control that masks and social distancing are no longer necessary indoors and outdoors for people who are fully vaccinated. The CDC’s guidance last week has led several states to announce the end of their various mask mandates, though there were several caveats to the initial guidance—one of which was that local and state mask mandates still applied. Cuomo had declined to end the mask mandate last week, though pressure had mounted over the weekend from county executives statewide eager for the economy to continue to reopen. Like the CDC, New York State’s guidance still says that unvaccinated people should continue to wear masks for the protection of others. Matt Butler is the Education & Public Health Reporter at the Ithaca Voice. He can be reached by email at [email protected] More by Matt Butler Matt Butler In New York, Cuomo’s office said that there would still be mask mandates and social distancing requirements in place at the following locations: “Pre-K to 12 schools, public transit, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and healthcare settings will continue to follow State’s existing COVID-19 health guidelines until more New Yorkers are fully vaccinated.”Tompkins County, where masks have been a relatively quiet issue since the beginning of the pandemic, will also follow the lead of Cuomo and the CDC. “Tompkins County will follow New York’s guidance for mask wearing and social distancing,” said Tompkins County Director of Communications Dominick Recckio. “We will be updating the Health Department’s website and sharing the new guidance with the community on Wednesday when it goes into effect.”In terms of tangible change, it may be difficult to assess exactly how much Cuomo’s announcement will change mask usage, particularly considering a crucial piece of information in the state’s press release on the announcement: “Department of Health strongly recommends masks in indoor settings where vaccination status of individuals is unknown. Mask requirements by businesses must adhere to all applicable federal and state laws and regulations.”More details are available at this link for what Cuomo’s announcement applies to, particularly large and small events, and it’s likely the local impacts will be even further clarified on Wednesday when the Tompkins County Health Department’s guidance is posted.

WCVB(BOSTON) — The family of a 23-year-old woman who was kidnapped after celebrating her birthday at a Boston nightclub will hold a funeral for the young mother Saturday morning.Jassy Correia, who had a 2-year-old daughter, was kidnapped last weekend after leaving Venu Nightclub, after celebrating her birthday with friends, police said.Relatives held a wake for Correia Friday night at St. Peter’s Church in Dorchester, according to the Archdiocese of Boston. A private burial will follow Saturday’s funeral, which will also be held at St. Peter’s Church. Federal prosecutors charged Rhode Island resident Louis Coleman III with Correia’s kidnapping and killing after police in Delaware arrested Coleman; Correia’s body was found in the trunk of his car. Coleman, 32, was charged with federal interstate kidnapping resulting in death, which carries a mandatory life sentence. He could also face the death penalty.The Boston City Council is planning to hold a public hearing on nightclub safety in the wake of Correia’s death to discuss what Councilor Annissa Essaibi-George says are ways to “hold ourselves, our men and our nighttime venues accountable.”However, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins told reporters on Friday that Correia “was right where every woman has every right to be — celebrating her birthday on a night out with friends.”“Let’s not fall into a discussion about whether we should walk home alone or how many people we should call when we’re leaving the club,” Rollins said. “If anything, let’s remind the men in our lives that violence against women isn’t a women’s issue — it’s a problem that men take responsibility for in their lives.”The cause of Correia’s death appears to have been blunt force trauma and strangulation, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling told reporters. There’s no indication that she was sexually assaulted, Lelling added.“It appears she put up a struggle,” he said.Prosecutors say Coleman did not know Correia.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Carroll County Sheriff’s Office(CARROLLTON, Ohio) — The body of a missing boy from rural Ohio was found buried in a shallow grave on a farm Friday morning, bringing a sad end to a desperate search for the 14-year-old who disappeared on April 13.Jonathon Minard was found dead, buried in the grave on a farm in Washington Township just after 10 a.m., according to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office. The body was found not far from where the boy went missing a week earlier in Carrollton, Ohio.An autopsy will be performed by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner, with results not expected for a few weeks.Authorities announced on Wednesday, two days before the discovery of the body, that they were questioning a person of interest in the case and said they were refusing to take a polygraph test. Carroll County Sheriff Dale Williams would not answer Friday whether the person was still in custody or still considered a person of interest.No one has been arrested in the teen’s death and the investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s office said.“Jonathon’s discovery is just the first step in gathering evidence to answer many unanswered questions that we have that have led us to this moment,” Carroll County Prosecuting Attorney Steve Barnett told Cleveland ABC affiliate WEWS. “Investigations like this take time, and this case is no exception.”Minard had been doing work on a farm in New Harrisburg, Ohio, on Friday before being taken to a family friend’s home in Carrollton. He spent the night there, authorities said, before he complained of a toothache, was left alone at the residence and had disappeared when the family friend returned.The boy wasn’t reported missing until April 14, the sheriff said.Family and friends spent Tuesday combing the area, a rural region about an hour south of Akron, for signs of the missing boy, but nothing turned up.“I have met with the family and as you might imagine this is an unimaginable grief — epic levels that can’t be put into words,” Mandal Haas, the Carroll County coroner, said at a Friday press conference.Even prior to the discovery of the teen’s body, Minard’s aunt, Jo Hepner, said his parents were “devastated.”“His mom is ready to have a breakdown, his dad is too and they feel helpless because they can’t do anything,” Hepner told WEWS.Authorities would provide few details at a press conference Friday, preferring to wait until after the investigation was complete.“The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office will continue to gather evidence until the investigation is complete,” it said in a statement. “We ask that the public and media respect the Minard family’s space and privacy at this time.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Comments are closed. LettersOn 30 May 2001 in Personnel Today This week’s lettersLetter of the week More to us than tea and toilet I think one of the major reasons why the HR profession is not regarded as aserious partner in business is because, in many instances, failed managers fromother disciplines have been moved into the sector as a way of getting them outof the way – they cannot be regarded as HR professionals (News, 15 May). This occurs because it may be felt by senior executives that to move aproblem manager into HR, will help protect the business because “not toomuch harm can be done by them in HR”. This in turn has had a reallynegative impact on HR as “tea and toilet” issues then become thefocus. I feel HR qualifications and experience are necessary to be truly effectiveand to be able to add value to the organisation. The two are interdependent asthe theory provides the framework within which to respond, while the experiencegained on the job dealing with situations (industrial relations, wagenegotiations, consultation on company closures, for example), all constitutelearning that separates the outstanding practitioner from the ordinary. HR professionals need to move away from an administrative support focus toone where they understand the business they are in, in order to provideproactive strategic support and add value to the business. With regard to qualifications, I find it very limiting and frustrating thatso many advertised HR jobs will consider only CIPD-qualified applicants. Comingfrom another country, I have reputable HR degree qualifications – up to Masterslevel – as well as having been fortunate to be in environments where I gainedgood exposure and experience to support them. As I am not CIPD qualified Icannot progress beyond the starting block. Sue Watt-PringleGroup HR coordinator, Portico Housing Group Two more for the top 40 power list I enjoyed Top 40 Power Players (Feature, 1 May) and I hope that few readers,if any, will be churlish enough to try to remove anyone from the list – afterall, we live in an inclusive century. It is of interest to debate if HR has power or influence, and the list threwup some names I had not come across, as is often the case with influence. However, one name I would add would be Craig Conway, who is the presidentand CEO of Peoplesoft. The recent release of version 8 and readiness to becomeWeb-enabled is what makes any prospect of successful outsourcing or progress bythe likes of Exult possible. In addition, Conway turned in a pretty successful financial result in a veryturbulent year – that’s real recognition of success and, in my view, power. Secondly, while he keeps himself to himself, Jim McKenna at Logica certainlyhas set a real standard for HR and for his business, and he is rightly at thereal top – he can exert power like few other HR professionals. Robert Bolton Vice-president HR, DACG Life’s too short to agonise over job Work to Live? Surely it can’t bethat difficult to decide not to open an e-mail (News, 15 May,”E-revolution is extending work hours”). I know that lots of peoplewould then complain about the volume of work, in which case you are either inthe wrong job or you have got the wrong manager. My advice would be to change your job. I am not saying that people shouldnot work hard, but they should also work smart. Let’s get some perspective –life is too short. Nick Flint Personnel assistant, University of Sussex There’s no need to give your age I agree with some of the points made by Vic Bohanna in his letter (15 May),but I would like to say that often in small companies it is not only thepersonnel departments that sift through applications. I am often amazed at howmany managers ask for an applicant’s date of birth. It is the duty of apersonnel officer to point out to colleagues who may want to know the age of anapplicant that this is totally irrelevant. I teach on a range of courses and work in HR, and when it comes to writingCVs, I strongly advise students not to include a date of birth. The more peopledo so, the less employers will be able to use such an irrelevant piece of factas a criteria on which to interview and appoint.

Long-term studies at Bird Island, South Georgia, show that numbers of wandering, black-browed and grey-headed albatrosses have been decreasing since the late 1970s. To determine the status of the total South Georgia population, all known colonies were censused in 2003/2004 using a combination of yacht-based digital photography and ground counts. The breeding population estimates from this census are 1,553 pairs of wandering albatross, 74,296 pairs of black-browed albatross and 47,674 pairs of grey-headed albatross. A 30% decline since 1984 was recorded for wandering albatross, and comparison of a sample of black-browed and grey-headed albatross colonies on the mainland of South Georgia photo-censused in both 1985/1986 and 2003/2004 indicates similarly substantial population declines. Unless these decreases can be halted or reversed, doubt will exist as to the long-term viability of these species of albatross at South Georgia.

But he is not alone.At the same time Cooke was speaking, London estate agency Douglas & Gordon’s CEO James Evans (left) revealed that it is developing a software system that will enable its staff “work seamlessly and completely mobile [and] negate the need for an office,” he told Computer Weekly magazine.Evans said he believes the world of branches is going to change and “a huge proportion of what people can do can be completed remotely.”Read more about property industry ‘flexible working’ initiatives.james evans Guild of Property Professionals jon cooke Douglas & Gordon fine & country September 30, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 30th September 2020 at 7:19 amThe fourth industrial revolution is allowing all industries to find efficiencies, break from the shackles of legacy models and empower the workforce. The only positive from the pandemic is that the antiquated legacy model is now being shown to be just that, and smart innovation coupled with deep property knowledge is opening everyone’s eyes to the future of real estate in all of its verticals. Technology within property is not a fad, its digital tendrils are here for good – and will remove swathes of boring repetitive back and front office procedures.WFH has shown even the most ardent critic, that agency is not a high street business, but a high level of service business, where property professionals can digitally plug into the real estate nexus where ever they are, and the end client is happy to transact via the prism of their mobile.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

A new Oxford University ski trip is hoping to attract students this year. ‘The New Snow Trip’ was originally only open to New College, before extending to Magdalen in 2011 and St Hilda’s in 2012. Now the trip is open to all Oxford University students.The trip will take place on the 15th-23rd March 2013 in Val D’Isere.The base price for the trip is £359, which includes 6 days accommodation, a lift pass, travel and several extras. Trip organisers managed to get a low price because of New College’s relationship with the tour operator ‘Off the Piste’, which they have used for the last 3 years. Events such as a Toboggan Evening and BBQ, a Race Day, a fancy dress day, and an event at Folie Douce are planned.Organisers are promoting the trip as a smaller, more friendly trip than Varsity, with a good social vibe, better weather, better snow, and better skiing at Easter. They also promote it on the grounds of its lack of Cambridge students. Last year the trip’s mcuh smaller capacity of 96 people was reached, but it is hoped that this year many more people will take part.Chiara Quadranti, the President of The New Snow Trip, said, “Not all colleges have their own ski trip so this gives a chance for anyone to go skiing, if they missed out on Varsity or if Varsity is not for them.“We want to provide students with a fresh alternative. While Varsity is huge, quasi-corporate and intimidating (to some) we want to propose another option: something a bit different, more likeable, more personal.“We want to set up something that could appeal to the same audience, i.e. the whole of Oxford, but with a very different vibe.”Harry Browne, a St Hilda’s student who went on the trip two years ago, said, “The atmosphere is different from Varsity because it’s smaller and you know everyone. But it’s still lash on the mountains.”Matthew Kain, from New College, went last year, said, “Better snow, no dirty Tabs, same lash – should appeal for people who actually want to go skiing rather than watching some crap like Ms Dynamite.”Midori Takenaka, a rep from Corpus Christi, told Cherwell, “The New Snow Trip is definitely not trying to compete with Varsity. The organising team are all students, and so the trip has been designed in a very student-friendly way. We are confident that the trip will prove to be a success, as it has been in previous years.” Last year the Varsity trip sold out within 8 hours, and 3,200 students attended. However, this year tickets did not sell out.Varsity President Simon Bushell told Cherwell, “The Varsity Trip is run on a not-for-profit basis entirely by student volunteers who aim to put on the best week possible for the participants of Varsity Trip, and we always strive to improve on last year’s trip. With six years of trips of over 1000 people, and over 90 years since the first Varsity Trip, we certainly have a lot of history to build on.‘As with the much improved booking system, we are working hard to respond to all of the feedback we had from last year’s trip, and this experience is one of the advantages of going on Varsity Trip.“One of the reasons Varsity Trip is so enjoyable is that it combines an intimate skiing experience with friends, with most participants sharing rooms or corridors with people from the same college, while giving an amazing opportunity to meet new people!”
