Jawalkar granted the protection to Chandhuri after an application under sec. 438 CrPC was filed by him seeking transit anticipatory bail in connection with the FIR no. 49/2021 registered by Delhi Police’s Cyber Crime Cell under sec. 124A, 153A and 120B of IPC. “The apprehension of arrest is made out by the applicant. The reasons for apprehension of arrest is justified in the facts and circumstances set out. Admittedly, FIR is lodged at New Delhi and any regular application for anticipatory bail under sec. 438 of CrPC would be considered by the competent court at Delhi. Therefore, the applicant is entitled for protection by way of granting transit bail to approach the competent authority for seeking appropriate reliefs.” The order states.

Bhobe appeared for the State.It was submitted by the applicant that he was “falsely implicated” in the case and has no connection with the toolkit and any of the offences made out in the said FIR.Reliance was made on the Bombay High Court order granting 10 days transit anticipatory bail to Shantanu Muluk which is now been extended by the Delhi Court till 9th March. Similar reliance was made on the grant of transit anticipatory bail of three weeks being given to Nikita Jacob by the Bombay High Court and also the bail granted to Disha Ravi by Additional Sessions Judge, Dharmender Rana vide order dated 23rd February 2021. “Protection is granted for a period of 10 days from today i.e. from 03.03.2021 to 12.03.2021 in order to enable the applicant to approach the competent court for seeking appropriate reliefs.” The order reads.

1,500 noncitizens may have been registered to vote in California DMV error

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — More than a thousand noncitizens may have been registered to vote in California after a processing error, according to officials.The Department of Motor Vehicles admitted Monday a mistake caused as many as 1,500 noncitizens being registered to vote in the state.The agency was alerted to the mistake when Randall Marquis, a Canadian citizen and legal permanent resident in the U.S., went to the Los Angeles Times to tell them about receiving a piece of mail from the DMV saying he was registered to vote.“I got this post card thing, this little piece of cardboard, and it said, ‘Congratulations, you’re registered to vote,’” Marquis told Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV. “I thought, ‘Oh, that’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard,’ and I threw it out.”The Newport Beach, California, resident rethought moving on, and decided to alert someone because of a series of voter registration errors in the state.The error is the second pertaining to voter registration errors in as many months for the DMV. The DMV notified Secretary of State Alex Padilla in early September that some 23,000 Californians had their registrations handled incorrectly, including some being assigned the wrong political party.“An extensive external audit by our departments found that approximately 1,500 customers may have been registered to vote in error,” the letter from the DMV to Padilla read. “This error has been corrected and is separate from the processing error we notified you about in writing on September 5.“This error occurred when DMV technicians processed customer requests at field offices to change voter eligibility responses on driver license applications,” the letter continued. “Due to the order in which the change was processed, the customer’s initial responses were retained instead of the correct and revised responses.”The DMV also specified that none of the impacted customers were undocumented immigrants.“We have worked quickly with the Department of Technology to correct these errors and have also updated the programming and added additional safeguards to improve this process,” DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said in a statement to KXTV.Padilla’s Republican opponent in this year’s election, Mark Meuser, seized on the mistake Monday in a tweet claiming the error was another sign of his incompetence.Meuser also referred to them as “fraudulent” registrations, instead of an error as the DMV said.“If they’re still making these mistakes, it shouldn’t be hidden,” Marquis said. “Somebody should know about it.“I don’t think that anybody’s trying to commit fraud here,” he added. “I think that they’re just not up to the task of doing their jobs correctly.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

An unholy waste of paper

first_imgSpare us any more business books about creativity in the workplace, saysStephen OverellTwo texts for this week, both recommended by readers. The first is the Papalencyclical Centesimus Annus of May 1991, issued on the feast of St Joseph theWorker, by John Paul II. The second is a new book Experiment at Work: Explosions and Experiences at theMost Frightening Company on Earth by Andy Law, whose non-hierarchical,co-operative and wincingly hip ad agency St Luke’s was once hailed as thefuture of work. That future no longer includes Law who is pursuing ‘otherinterests’, ploughing a non-hierarchical furrow all by himself. Both books are concerned with the creativity, dignity and meaningfulness ofwork, but it would be quite wrong to overdo the similarities. Law’s book is a remorselessly enthusiastic call to take risks in workorganisation, for businesses to be animated by a purpose such as creativityabove profit, and to opt out of the deadening, habit-forming routines ofconventional work. St Luke’s is referred to not as a company, but as ‘amovement’, while its staff act like ‘spores’, germinating the brand values. Law believes there is ‘something not right’ with capitalism (but does notreally say what) and argues that changing the nature of work is a question of‘attitudes and behaviour’. The book posits no role for the State in shaping workinglife, and takes no interest in structural labour market issues, like equalityor pay. It also has that clammy and trite top-of-the-head tone that afflictsmany business books. There is little in it that the Pontiff could object to, though Law’s philosophyof ‘chaotica’ would sit uneasily with a canon of revealed truth showing thesource of permanent moral values. The encyclical, naturally, is a more measured affair. It attacks socialismfor its mechanistic view of workers as mere molecules in an organism, and saysthere is a legitimate role for enterprise outside State interference. However,it argues that it is the responsibility of the State to ensure a ‘certainequality’ between employer and employee in their relationship and to set alegal framework for adequate rest, a limitation of working hours, a ‘just wage’and, crucially, access to training and knowledge – the source of economicadvantage. It states: “The fact is that many people, perhaps the majority today,do not have the means which would enable them to take their place in aneffective and humanly dignified way within a productive system in which work istruly central. They have no possibility of acquiring the basic knowledge whichwould enable them to express their creativity and develop theirpotential.” Catholic social doctrine might not be zany enough for Law, but he wouldsurely concur with the encyclical’s scorn for “a style of life which ispresumed to be better when it is directed towards ‘having’ rather than‘being’”. Which, if either, should busy employers read? I sense they may be drawn toLaw’s experiment: reconciling economic advance with fulfilling work is theguiding principle of the human relations school. Tales of radical ways ofworking are depressingly rare – so rare, in fact, that the Government has takenthe faintly absurd step of legislating to encourage employers to dabble withflexible work arrangements. In addition, the idea that the way people are managed and led has a criticalrole in the quality of the experience of working will chime with manypredilections. They may also enjoy St Luke’s list of values, which includessuch things as ‘rebellion, sacrifice, personal transformation, innovative waysof working, opening minds, creativity, challenger brand…’ This choice would be a mistake. Books that believe changing working life isall about changing attitudes are hopelessly empty. No click of the creativefingers will result in deeply ingrained structures being magicked away – as ifpractice follows attitude like an obedient hound. There seems far more evidencethat it goes precisely in the opposite direction: the habits of work determineattitudes and behaviour; employment contracts determine psychologicalcontracts. Either way, there is a circularity in this approach that it is impossible toescape. A few generous-spirited employers snapping out of it and deciding tooffer fulfilling environments to their staff would be great, but it is notreally persuasive as a recipe for the large-scale improvement of working life. Which is why the choice of reading for something worthwhile to say on thesubject of meaningful work involves a novel trip to www.vatican.va. Here,meaningful work is seen as a social question involving a role for the State inensuring and raising minimum standards across pay, rest, the provision ofleisure and so on. But also, because work is central to the experience of beinghuman, it becomes a responsibility for employers to allow their staff ‘theexpression of one’s own personality at the workplace without suffering anyaffront to one’s conscience or personal dignity’. Creativity cannot be imposed on people. As far as I know, the Vatican has sanctified no corporate-style statement ofvalues – at least none that are short enough to fit on wall plaques. The St Luke’s version is more go-go than the usual stuff about respect forindividuals and integrity. But could anyone possibly do any better than ‘do asyou would be done by’?

Shutdown begins at 2,400MW Navajo Generating Station in Arizona, Unit 3 taken out of service

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg Environment:The largest coal plant in the West has shut down one of its three units, marking another step in the plant’s now nearly certain demise.“Unit 3 is indeed offline and will likely remain so unless absolutely needed,” said Scott Harelson, a spokesman for the Salt River Project, which operates the 2,400-megawatt Navajo Generating Station in northeastern Arizona. “This allows us to focus maintenance efforts on the remaining two units while we work to use the remaining coal reserves before we close all the units,” Harelson told Bloomberg Environment.Unit 3, the youngest of NGS’ three units, has been burning coal since it was built in 1976. All three of the plant’s units are the same size, 803 megawatts.The closure on Sept. 19 wasn’t a surprise. Peabody Energy Corp.’s nearby Kayenta Mine sent its last trainload of coal to NGS in late August, according to the company.With no buyers interested in taking over the plant, it is now virtually certain to shut down by Dec. 22, when the current operating lease expires. SRP said in May it wouldn’t entertain any more bids, and it already has begun decommissioning.The plant sits on Navajo land, and the Navajo Nation’s current leadership supports a transition to renewable energy. The tribe announced Sept. 20 the completion of the second phase of its Kayenta Solar generating facility, which pumps out 28 megawatts. Phase one of the plant creates 27.3 megawatts.More: Biggest coal plant in the West closes one of three units Shutdown begins at 2,400MW Navajo Generating Station in Arizona, Unit 3 taken out of servicelast_img read more

Brand repositioning in uncertain times

first_img continue reading » Would you characterize your credit union’s response as “survival mode” to the worst drop on record for the U.S. economy? All hands on deck! Behaviors change, systems are abandoned, and your branding and marketing strategy is now in limbo.The unfortunate truth is many credit unions are letting busyness get in the way of progress. Almost every financial institution has taken a hit. But there are those who have bounced back much faster or even yielded extraordinary results in the first half of this year because they have prioritized what’s important to them and stuck to a practical, flexible framework.In short…Gritty = Good. Busy = Bad.As we’ve studied the credit union brands that have raised their performances to new levels, vision drives everything. They recognize that their branding and marketing strategy are undeniably necessary. Why is that exactly? Their credit union brand is at their core, and it influences their people, their thoughts and their actions.
