The direction came by a bench comprising of Justices S.K. Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari and Hrishikesh Roy. Senior Advocate Meenakshi Arora appeared on behalf of the petitioner company along with Adv. Siddharth, AOR. The petitioner sought slew of directions from the Apex Court in order to facilitate the process of disbursement of compensation as well as expediting the matter before the MACT. In the previous hearing before the same bench dated 18.01.2021, the bench directed the petitioner to submit a note indicating the directions within 10 days. During the course of proceedings today, Meenakshi Arora informed the bench that she had submitted the required note in the Court wherein she had incorporated various directions given by the Delhi High Court and other High Courts across India dealing with compensation disbursement process and expedition of cases pending before MACT. However, Justice Kaul clarified Ms. Arora that the bench had asked the petitioner to prepare “draft directions” for the Court to look into the aspect of its implementation. Ms. Arora, accepting her fault for not submitting the requisite draft directions, sought permission from the bench to grant some time to the petitioner to come up with the guidelines. “You cannot put everything on court and say you do it. You should have framed the guidelines. You’ve not done the exercise.” Justice Kaul remarked at the outset. “We asked you vide Order dated 18th January for directions related to disbursement of compensation and expedition of MACT cases, which would have then modulated for a uniform application. We are trying to help you out. We will give you one more chance. Otherwise we will close this case.” The bench observed. The bench granted one last chance to the petitioner in order to come up with the draft guidelines. However, in doing so, the bench also ordered that if the petitioner fail to come up with the guidelines in the next date of hearing, it will mean that the insurance company is not interested in the passing of directions.”We have seen the application and the notes submitted by the petitioner but in the course of proceedings, it has been impressed upon learned senior counsel for the petitioner that this is not what we had in mind when we passed the directions on 18.01.2021 and thus, if the insurance company is interested in the slew of directions, the same be set forth in the manner which we have indicated in the Court failing which we will presume that the insurance Company is not interested.” The order said.The matter will now be heard on 24th February 2021.Click Here To Download OrderOrder Dated 18.01.2021 Can Be Read HereNext Storylast_img read more

That’s just the day jobDo you remember the Blairs’ public spat over parental leave? Well, you’ll bepleased to know that Tony has managed to balance his home and work commitmentsfollowing Leo’s birth. At the Opportunity Now awards in London last week, Cherie Blair told theaudience that the Prime Minister does manage to pop up to the nursery to seethe baby after a hard day running the country. But with barrister Cherie embarking on a new case and Tony trying to secureLabour’s second term, Guru is concerned that little Leo could suffer. The next government could learn a few lessons from the HSBC bank, which wonthe Framework for Action category at the awards. The judging panel, whichincluded Personnel Today’s editor Noel O’Reilly, was impressed by the bank’sattempts to promote women into management positions and support of work-lifebalance practices. PC job-seekers choose Tuesday Tuesday is a very important day. Not only is it the day Personnel Today hitsthe desks of HR professionals, but it is also when all your staff are lookingfor new jobs. Research by a leading online European recruitment agency shows that itreceives the most visitors on a Tuesday. This represents 37 per cent of the500,000 page views a week. Most staff access the jobs site during their lunch hour through their workPC. Unsurprisingly, staff showed little interest in investigating new careeroptions over the weekend, claims jobpilot.co.uk. We’ve all heard about your type Guru has already warned disciples that the type of mobile phone ring youchoose sends out messages about your personality. Now research suggests that the style of typefaces used in e-mails also tellsthe recipients about your character. Psychologist Dr Sigman was commissioned by printer firm Lexmark to performthe study. Sans serif typefaces, such as Arial and Modern, are the “sensible pairof shoes of print”, whereas curvy typefaces such as Georgia are used byfashionable types. Times New Roman and Palatino show trustworthiness and a compromise betweenold and new. Guru was disturbed to find that Courier – his favourite – is the”anorak of typefaces” and tends to be used by boozy, chain-smokingjournalists. Anyone for a pint? Police go back to grass-roots level Like an old episode of The Bill, the police stories continue to run and run.Personnel Today revealed that the Police Federation’s pre-election calls foran extra 12,000 officers could be impossible to meet (22 May). But Guru hears that those police forces that are trying to swell theirnumbers are experiencing some unforeseen benefits – well-manicured gardensbeing one of them. One unnamed force has used new recruits as gardeners because there were notenough places in police training schools. The £18,000-a-year recruits hadalready completed a two-week induction course and were on the payroll. Other training colleges are struggling to cope. Apparently, Hendon TrainingCentre in London is so under pressure to train coppers that Scotland Yard washiring hotel rooms at £75 a night to house recruits. last_img read more

Chevron makes waves with Sea Swift offshore platform for Angola

first_img Sea Swift is a minimum-facility offshore platform for shallow waters. (Credit: Aquaterra Energy) Aquaterra Energy, a leader in global offshore engineering solutions, has secured a significant agreement from Chevron, through its wholly owned subsidiary in Angola, Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited (CABGOC), to design and support installation of a Sea Swift offshore platform solution off the coast of Angola.Destined for the Lifua-A field, the conductor supported platform (CSP) will be designed and installed in 60m of water. Sea Swift was chosen for its modular design to minimise build and implementation time and for the ability to fabricate the platform locally in Cabinda, Angola. Aquaterra Energy will manage the entire project scope via its in-house engineering and project management teams and will employ both Angolan fabrication and installation support.Stewart Maxwell, Technical Director at Aquaterra Energy said: “CSPs are sometimes misunderstood and can often be overlooked for more traditional jacketed platforms. However, CSPs like Sea Swift can be installed by jack-up, so that operators can take advantage of the infrastructure they have available in the field, without the need to mobilise other assets – saving valuable time and resources.”Sea Swift is a minimum-facility offshore platform for rapid returns in shallow waters. Using well conductors as the structural support for the topside, Sea Swift minimises build and implementation times. The platforms offer a low-risk, low-cost route to reduced time to first oil and lower capital investment.“This agreement is a key milestone on the Sea Swift success story, and a real achievement for the entire team. This will be our fifth Sea Swift platform in West Africa and highlights the growing importance of flexible platform fabrication that can not only help local content rules but also reduce environmental impact via innovative installation options.”, adds Maxwell.

Dopapod & Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Rock The Boulder Theater

first_imgTwo of the fastest rising acts in the East Coast jam scene, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and Dopapod, ventured West for a co-headlining performance at the Boulder Theater last Saturday night, January 28th.The two bands toured together throughout the fall, and reunited for a two night run in Colorado. Since Dopapod got to close out the show Friday night at Denver’s Ogden Theatre, they were first on stage Saturday at the Boulder.Born in the halls of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, the band is a true powerhouse of prog-rock chops. Led by the searing guitar work of Rob Compa and the stylized synths of Eli Winderman, Dopapod brought the heat from start to finish in a metal-inspired set that left you little time to catch your breath. The complex compositions were followed almost note for note by lighting director Luke Stratton, who is quickly proving himself to be one of the best on the market.Next up was Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, who packed in a fourteen song set of high-energy dance music. While the band’s whimsical attitude and frontman Greg Ormont’s comical facial expressions have always made Pigeons a fun party band, the addition of drummer Alex Petropulos has taken their musicianship and precision to new heights. The set focused largely on material from their 2014 release Psychology, with sandwiched teases of the Allman Brothers’ “Jessica” and the Star Wars Cantina music.Check out the setlists from both sets, below.Setlist: Dopapod | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 1/28/17Set: STADA, Plaese Haalp, Bluetooth, Upside of Down> Weird Charlie> Present Ghosts, Freight Train> Ya’ll Ready For This> Freight Train> Groundhog Day, Vol. 3 #86> Black and WhiteSetlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 1/28/17Set: Burning Up My Time, Sunny Day, Poseidon> Jessica> Poseidon> Horizons> Poseidon, Something For Ya, Stay, Whirled, Julia, Time To Ride> Cantina Band> Time To Ride, Ocean FlowsEncore: Bad For You, Fun In Funk[Image via Phierce Photo // December 14th, 2016]last_img read more

ND Day postponed due to COVID-19

first_imgNotre Dame Day will be postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty across the nation and world, the ND Day team said in an email.The annual event was set for April 26 to 27 and provides an opportunity for student groups and causes to fundraise for a significant portion of their annual budget. People may donate to causes individually, and for every $10 an organization receives, the cause will receive a portion of the College Funds which amounts to a $1.2 million pot.Organizations across campus compete to raise money while a 29-hour live broadcast tells the stories of students, faculty, staff, alumni and associates of Notre Dame around the world.“Notre Dame Day is an annual celebration of all the ways the Notre Dame family lives out our mission to be a force for good in the world,” ND Day organizers said in an email.While the coordinators are in the process of scheduling a future date for the annual event, they have not yet set a formal date and will make an announcement as soon as they make the decision.“While the date of Notre Dame Day has changed, the desire for us to join together as a community has not,” the team said.In the next few days, ND Day organizers will highlight past memorable Notre Dame Day broadcasts on their ND Loyal pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.“Each day, we will share a number of segments in order to bring a little bit of the Notre Dame spirit into your home,” coordinators said.Tags: coronavirus, COVID-19, fundraising, ND Day, Notre Dame Daylast_img read more

Six Things On the Twentieth Century’s Kristin Chenoweth Loves

first_imgStage and screen darling Kristin Chenoweth is (finally) back on Broadway in the revival of On the Twentieth Century. The Tony and Emmy winner recently spent some time with The New York Times, and from their subsequent story, we learned about all sorts of items on Kristin Chenoweth’s list of favorite things. Take a look below at just some of the people, places and things Chenoweth can’t stop gushing about.1. Schmackary’sDuring the course of the interview, Chenoweth not only snacked on one of their legendary cookies (from the description, it appears to have been Funfetti), but also had more brought to her dressing room to share. “Hello? It’s called Schmackary’s, and it’s in Midtown,” Cheno said, incredulous that anyone would not know of the Hells Kitchen honorary historic landmark. We just assumed The New York Times watched Side by Side by Susan Blackwell.2. Trashy TVWhen describing her down time, the Emmy winner explained that after a bath and some neck stretches, “I get in bed, and I watch bad television.” Her particularly faves? Real Housewives (any county), Vanderpump Rules and Dance Moms. Tune in next season for her guest appearances on all three—she’ll probably get an Emmy for at least one of them.3. Comden and GreenBetty Comden and Adolph Green wrote the book and lyrics for her current Broadway gig, but Chenoweth was already familiar with their work, having sung “If You Hadn’t But You Did” on her 2001 album Let Yourself Go. During the recording session, the lyricists suggested On the Twentieth Century for her—the second time she had heard this (the first was from her Oklahoma voice teacher). Chenoweth later sang the song at Green’s memorial service (per his advanced request), proving, considering the subject matter, that the Tony-winning songwriter had a hearty sense of humor.4. Madeline KahnChenoweth taking on the role of Lily Garland is all sorts of kismet. The role’s originator, the late Madeline Kahn, is one of her personal heroes. So much so that she named her Maltese after her. Chenoweth never met Kahn in person, but earlier this year, she told the ladies of The View, “I’m hoping she’s proud of me.”5. Mani/PedisThe Broadway star, when asked how she wanted to spend her day off, told the Times that she’d “love to do something normal…I would love to get a pedicure.” And that she did, selecting bright red polish (a character choice for Lily) for her toes and just getting her fingernails clipped: “I don’t want to slice up my co-workers.” It’s OK, Cheno. Andy Karl is used to getting roughed up a bit on stage.6. Paying It ForwardThis summer, Chenoweth will oversee a Broadway-themed “boot camp” for high school students in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. “This is what I’m probably most proud of,” she said of the project. “As you get older, you learn how you want to make your mark, how you want to be remembered.” To learn more about her partnership with the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center Foundation and to donate, visit their website.Here are just a few items that we would like to add to the list on Chenoweth’s behalf:7. High Notes8. Being an Assistant Principal9. SoulCycle Booster Seats10. JapaneseOn the Twentieth Century opens officially at the American Airlines Theatre on March 12.
