The court noted that the passes were being sought despite the institution being located in a COVID epicenter region that had been cordoned off by the Government of Delhi. Thus, remarking that petition was “ill-conceived”, the bench of Justice C. Hari Shankar directed the institution to pay Rs. 10,000/- towards the PM CARES Fund, as costs. The Civilian Welfare and Development Trust had filed a contempt petition stating that despite the order of a learned single judge of the high court dated April 8, the respondent authorities did not extend the validity period of their ‘essential services passes’. Thus, apposite directions against ‘wilful disobedience’ of a court order were sought. During the course of hearing however, the bench was informed that the Trust was situated in Chandni Mahal area, where 102 positive COVID cases had surfaced. Consequently, by an order dated April 10, the Government of Delhi had cordoned off that area for containment purposes and it was in this backdrop that the passes had not been extended. “It cannot be said, by any stretch of imagination, that there has been any contemptuous or wilful disobedience, or otherwise, of the order, dated 8th April, 2020, passed by this Court in WP (C) 2954/2020 already extracted herein-above. Significantly, the said order had been passed before the issuance of the containment order, dated 10th April, 2020, by the GNCTD,” the bench thus observed. The court also noted that the Government was not oblivious to the requirement of essential commodities reaching persons located within the containment area. In fact, the court observed that the Government was ensuring door-to-door supply of essential commodities in the said area in coordination with market associations. It thus remarked, “The “appropriateness” of the “mechanism” has necessarily to be left to the discretion of the concerned authorities, who are in seisin of the issue. It is not for the petitioner to treat itself as an “appropriate mechanism” for supply of essential commodities. Had the petitioner been serious about its intentions, it was always open to the petitioner to contact the SDM, Kotwali and the SHO, P.S. Chandni Mahal in this regard. It does not appear that any such attempt was made.” Justice Hari Shankar went on to note that the Central, as well as the State Governments had been “straining every sinew” to curb the spread of corona virus and that the courts were duty bound to stamp out such “ill-conceived” petitions. “the Government, is aimed at ensuring, as far as possible, limited exposure, of the country and its denizens, to the n-COVID-2019 virus. Judicial notice may be taken of the fact, apparent at ground level, that the Central, as well as the State Governments – including the GNCTD – are straining every sinew, in achieving this aim and are committed to making no compromises, whatsoever, on that score. We have, as it is, naysayers aplenty, and it is the duty of courts to step in and ensure that the efforts, of the executive administration, to somehow tide over the crisis, are not subjected to roadblocks in the form of abortive and ill-conceived litigative exercises. This court, were it to at all entertain the present contempt petition would, in my view, be acting in eminent opposition to public interest,” the bench concluded.

Syracuse was outmatched in almost every facet, getting outshot and penalized more than the Beavers.After a 0-0 draw on Friday, the Orange never found its rhythm in a tough afternoon outing. BSU outshot SU by 10 and consistently fooled senior goalie Abbey Miller en route to a five-goal performance.Forty seconds into the game, the Orange found itself down via an Emma Terres goal. In the first period, the Beavers dominated possession and saw Terres beat Miller twice in 11 minutes. A Bemidji State penalty six minutes into the frame allowed a brief stretch of control for the Orange, but its inability to convert was ultimately Syracuse’s downfall.While only getting outshot by five in the second period, the Orange still failed to execute on the other side of the ice. Syracuse committed two penalties and allowed one goal in the second 20 minutes.Down 3-0 entering the second period, the outlook was grim for SU.Just over a minute into the third period, the Beavers ended any chance of a comeback with an even strength goal.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhile Syracuse tallied more faceoff wins than the Beavers, the Orange’s inability to capitalize on power plays and other quality chances was the difference.The Orange are back in action on Friday, Oct. 6, at 4 p.m. against Wisconsin.

I’m still not prepared to say something to be honest,” Klopp told a press conference. “How I deal with things like that is usually; my door is not always literally open, but it’s always open if somebody wants to talk.”As long as they don’t talk to me, it doesn’t really exist!”But that Alberto is not happy with not having too much minutes, it’s obvious. The more important thing is he never shows it in any training sessions, he’s a fantastic professional and trains really well when he can.”The last couple of weeks he has had back problems and that kept him out of a lot of sessions. Yesterday was the first session it looked 100 per cent good again. That’s all.”

We are the ones who have to go in and play on the field, so people can relate to it all around and what other people’s opinions are.”Of course, you guys are writing the articles. It is your opinion that is being passed on. If you asked everyone on the team, then I think we had a very shared opinion on how we saw things and how we felt the game had been played.”I understand that it’s not funny to write that we play a draw a couple of times and win 1-0. It’s not as fun to write about as so many other things. Therefore, I think that something is created that is not there.”
Kolkata: Mayor Firhad Hakim reiterated on Monday that funds in the fixed deposit of the civic body will be utilised only for development work and civic amenities and any wastage of such funds will not be tolerated.Replying to a query from Congress councillor Prakash Upadhyay regarding the existing amount in the fixed deposit of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) at the monthly meeting, Hakim said: “We have an amount of Rs 17.10 crore till February 2018. The funds in the fixed deposit, whether it is more or less, does not matter. What matters most is offering services and civic amenities to the people. Since the Trinamool Congress took over the board of the KMC in 2010, it has provided civic amenities in the form of potable drinking water, lights, development of slums, an overhaul of the drainage system, scientific plan for solid waste management etc.” According to Hakim, when Subrata Mukherjee of the TMC ended his term as the Mayor in 2005, the amount of fixed deposit stood at Rs 377.16 crore. When Bikash Bhattacharya of the Left Front board took over as Mayor, he sold a number of plots of land and the fixed deposit went up to Rs 721.25 crore. Hakim further informed that when Bhattacharya’s term as Mayor ended in 2010, he left Rs 588. 67 crore in the fixed deposit of the KMC. “The revenue earning is a part our job but our main aim is to ensure that the citizens get the best of amenities,” he maintained. The Mayor further said that the KMC has set a target of three years to ensure the supply of potable drinking water to every single pocket in the city. “There are problems in certain pockets, particularly in the added areas in the southern part, and we are taking all possible measures to augment water supply. The capacity of the Garden Reach Waterways is being raised by 25 million gallon and we are also constructing small booster pumping stations in these areas to boost water supply,” he added.
Rabat – King Mohammed VI said on Monday that the 50th anniversary of the Moroccan parliament is a “historic moment” in the political evolution process of Morocco, which, thanks to this institution, has succeeded in consolidating the foundations of a representative democracy.In a message addressed to members of the House of Representatives and of the Chamber of Advisors, the Sovereign said the establishment of the parliament, 50 years ago, had “embodied the shared will of the king and the people”, just like other major events and causes that punctuated Morocco’s history since independence.The Royal message, read out by speaker of the House of Representatives, Karim Ghellab, further said that the anniversary “is a historic moment in the process reflecting the political evolution of the State and the Moroccan people, at large and the Moroccan political elite, particularly”.The Sovereign further underlines that the Parliament has accomplished, during half a century of existence, its mission of law-making and control, while emerging as a space for the training of national political elites and a framework of debates, exchange and diverging viewpoints, both with the Government or between the majority and the opposition. The King also recalled that the 2011 constitution has granted the Moroccan parliament a privileged status among the national institutions as a full-fledged legislative power, increasingly open to women’s participation in political life and in public affairs management , in keeping with the Sovereign’s will to increase women contributions in all walks of life, particularly in the political field.
The Boys of Columbus face two key early-season tests that could derail their road back to New Orleans for next year’s BCS National Championship Game. OSU struggled in every road game except Minnesota in 2010. After two cupcake home games against Akron and Toledo, the Buckeyes play at Miami (Fla.) in week three. The Hurricanes played zombie football the last half of 2010 — anyone who watched Notre Dame dismantle them in the Sun Bowl could see that. The new eye of the Hurricanes, Al Golden, is a strict disciplinarian. He’ll have slackers running stadium stairs or shown the door. Come week five, the Spartans will visit Columbus. If the NCAA reduces the suspensions of Pryor, Herron, Posey, Adams and Thomas to four games, this could be their first game of the season. But if the NCAA upholds the suspensions, it’s likely Joe Bauserman, Jordan Hall, Corey Brown, Chris Fields, Andrew Norwell and Adam Bellamy will play major roles in beating Sparty, who loses veteran players on defense but returns with a strong offense. If OSU goes without the suspended five against Sparty, it might be a home underdog, which is rare for the Buckeyes. The last time this happened was against USC in 2009. The Sugar Bowl triumph feels good, but OSU might have mortgaged away another national title run in the process. “Through all adversity lies a blessing.” Solomon Thomas said that after Ohio State’s Sugar Bowl victory over Arkansas on Jan. 4. In a game full of turbulence, it was fitting that five of the Shameful Six played fabulous roles in the win. But now it’s time to look to next season. By letting those players work their magic in the bowl, OSU might have cursed its 2011 national title hopes. Thomas, Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey and Mike Adams say they’ll return next season, putting OSU ahead of the Big Ten class: Michigan State will lose key players, including All-American linebacker Greg Jones; Wisconsin will lose powerhouse Scott Tolzein, winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top senior quarterback; Iowa has to start over; and Michigan is nowhere to be found. Big Ten newcomers, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, will compete for the 2011 conference crown with quarterback Taylor Martinez. However, it’s a catch-22 for OSU: The Shameful Six were allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl, but all except Jordan Whiting can’t play the first five games of next season for their part in Tattoo-gate. OSU appealed to reduce the suspensions. The Sugar Bowl win salvaged 2010 for the Buckeyes, who snapped their nine-bowl-game losing streak against the SEC, dating to 1978. By letting the suspended athletes play in the bowl, OSU might have pulled the plug on a 2011 National Championship run.
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici revealed the club holds Paul Pogba in high esteem but are not considering to reunite with him any time soon.Pogba is believed to be having a torrid time with Mourinho at Old Trafford and has been linked with a move to other clubs including Turin.But the Juve supremo has ruled out any move for him.“We love him very much,” Paratici confirmed at the Manlio Scopigno awards.“We’re connected to him, but we’ve never thought about it and we’re not going to think about it.“Sergej Milinkovic-Savic? He’s a great player, but we haven’t spoken to him or Lazio.”Paratici will soon have more responsibility with the Bianconeri, as general manager Giuseppe Marotta is leaving on October 25.Report: Up to seven first team players out for United George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Manchester United have some serious injury problems with up to seven first-team players out.This Saturday, United have a Premier League clash with Leicester City….“Up until now, I’ve managed quite well behind the scenes, not least due to my character. Now the situation will change a bit, but I’ll keep working to make Juventus as strong as possible.“I dedicate this award to the person who raised me, and really for me, he’s been a putative father: Dr. Marotta.“Could he go to Inter? I wouldn’t be surprised, because he’s a great director and one of the best of the past 10 years, perhaps along with [Adriano] Galliani, and the Nerazzurri are a great club.“I only hope that he’s happy, and if that means being a director at a big Italian club, that’s fine.“As for myself, I’ve never thought about changing, I’m in love with Juventus. I like the environment in which I work and I like the squad.“Fortunately I have a very well prepared staff and I share my ideas with [Vice-President] Pavel Nedved and the Coach [Max Allegri].”
