In his first speech to the Lord Mayor’s banquet, the Prime Minister will argue that the City’s status as a centre for global finance means Britain will continue to be a major player on the world stage, even as emerging economies like China and India gain influence. “Britain remains a great economic power. Show me a City in the world with stronger credentials than the City of London,” Cameron is expected to say at the Guildhall. “Show me another gathering with the same line-up of financial, legal, accounting, communications and other professional expertise.”With an audience drawn mainly from the Square Mile, the Prime Minister’s warm words for the City are to be expected. However, they mark an important, if subtle, shift in tone. Since entering Downing Street, Cameron has been careful to talk up manufacturers and small firms at the expense of financial services and so-called “big business” – much to the chagrin of some Tory backbenchers.

Australia come from behind to beat Leicester Tigers in midweek clash

first_imgThursday Nov 11, 2010 Australia come from behind to beat Leicester Tigers in midweek clash On Tuesday night Australias second-stringers played Leicester Tigers at Welford Road as the English side hoped to grab another big scalp to add to their already impressive list. Australia came from behind though, taking 26-15 victory.Speedster Lachie Turnerscored early in the game before Leicesters Billy Tweletrees kicked them back into the game with five successful penalties. The tourists stuck at it though and thanks to the boot of Berrick Barners, and a late try from Scott Higginbotham, they managed to avoid a repeat of what the Tigers did to South Africalast year.“We are delighted with the win,” said coach Robbie Deans. “This is the nearest our young side can get to a Test match. You can’t replicate this on the training ground. Seven of our guys put on the jersey for the first time,” he added. Richard Cockerillwas naturally disappointed that his Leicester side couldnt hang onto the lead they earned early in the second half.“It was a fierce contest, we gave them an early lead but we got right back in it. The momentum was with us, we were 15-13 up and we should have closed the game out and in the end the scoreline was too heavily in their favour,” the former England hooker said.Loose forward Higginbotham scored a controversial late try that made the scoreline look more comfortable than it probably was for the Aussies. The Wallabies will face England at Twickenham this weekend though with added confidence within the squad. ‘Headbutts, forearms, cameos, and Sonny Bill keep rugby fans glued to their TVs’– Rugbydump’s guest blog on the Telegraph Please check out RD’s latest blog on the Telegraph website.

The SG, after submitting that the 102nd Constitutional Amendment would not denude the States of their power to declare SEBCs, conveyed to the Court that the Centre was of the view that the Maharashtra SEBC Act was constitutional. “We have construed Article 342A to be a confined role of the Central Government. In our view, in the case of Maharashtra, the State’s Act is constitutional”, stated the SG.The SG added that he was adopting the submissions made by the Attorney General that the 102nd Constitution Amendment will not affect the powers of States to draw OBC lists.The Court had sought the views of the Centre on the ambit of the 102nd Constitution Amendment which inserted Article 342A to establish National Commission for Backward Classes. The 5-Judge Bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, L. Nageswara Rao, S. Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and S. Ravindra Bhat were hearing on the 7th day a batch of pleas challenging the SEBC Act, 2018, which provides for reservation for Marathas in jobs and education. 1) Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal Appearing for State of Jharkhand, Sibal resumed his submissions on the majority in Indra Sawhney not having accepted the Mandal Commission report in order to put forth the point that while the Court had the power to strike down reservation on the grounds that it violated Article 16(1) or 16(4), but it did not have the judicial power to fix the limit of 50%. He submitted that reservations depends on the facts and circumstances of the matter, and the same could only be ascertained by the States, not Courts. “The point is, if more than 50% reservation is given, then why is it bad? If you find that certain communities have never had the chance to get an education and you reserve seats for them, is there anything wrong with that? Without data, reservations cannot be fixed. Mandal cannot decide because Mandal does not have the data. 50% limit emerges from an observation and becomes the law for 30 years”. Sibal then informed the Court that the NM Thomas case and Article 15 prohibited hostile discrimination and not reasonable classification. He added that agitations had taken place during and after the Mandal report, and that only because Marathas were leaders, it did not mean that 80% of the community was forward. It was further submitted that the power of judicial review of the Court only came in to check excesses of power of the State when it was exercised, and not before that. “You cannot in anticipation lay down a rule of law. The jurisdiction under the Constitution is not to preempt discrimination through a rule of law. Courts should not legislate and must not legislate. If the legislature says no reservations beyond 50%, that is their power. Courts cannot say that because it is legislation. Indra Sawhney shackles the State legislature”. Sibal also conveyed to the Court that many States had already exceeded the 50% limit by providing reservations to Economically Weaker Sections. He stated that the 103rd Amendment which provided the “in addition to” 10% reservation to EWS over and above the 50% limit was contrary to the judgement. In light of the above, Sibal concluded that there was a need to refer the matter to a larger Bench. 2. Senior Advocate Manish Singhvi Singhvi, appearing for the State of Rajasthan, argued that the term “backward classes” was broader than SEBCs and that Article 342A did not take away the State’s power. “Parliament was conscious that they were confining to the Central List when they enacted 102nd Amendment. Articles 16(4) and 243(6) were not divested from the State and remained with them. States must have their own powers of identification of backward classes. Otherwise it is a violation of federal policy”. He contended that the Parliament in exercise of its powers of amendment had not taken away the State’s power, and had that been the case, it would have been a colourable exercise of power which would encroach on the State’s powers. Singhvi further submitted that Article 16(4) was not an exception to 16(1) and that it was a facet of 16(1). “Lakshman Rekha is impermissible. If one right is an extension of another right, one cannot say that 50% is the Lakshman Rekha. States should be permitted to extend the reservations beyond 50% if it finds a community not adequately represented. Judicial review should be case-specific and Act-specific. It cannot be on a general principle of 50%”. He concluded his submissions by arguing that Indra Sawhney required a reconsideration on the ground that a balancing test was required in each particular case, and not on the basis of a fixed limit. 3. Senior Advocate Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi Dr. Singhvi commenced his submissions by stating that the material underlying Constitutional amendments and statutes made it clear that the State’s power was never intended to be inhibited or circumscribed. Referring to a 2018 judgement of Kalpana Mehta v. Union of India, Dr. Singhvi explained the extent to which Parliamentary reports could be relied upon or reviewed. “It is clear as day that the Court can take aid of the report of the Parliamentary Committee for the purpose of appreciating the historical background of statutory provisions”. He submitted that State Lists had existed far before Indra Sawhney in order to fill vacancies in State/provincial institutions, and it was Indra Sawhney which created the larger movement of having Commissions. “The dispute here is premature and hypothetical, and that the time for adjudication would only come in when the Central List is provided for, which provides for reservation either in the positive or the negative, with respect to certain classes called the ‘Marathas’.” 4. Senior Advocate S. Niranjan Reddy Reddy, appearing for State of Andhra Pradesh, asked the Bench whether a State should be restrained from exceeding 50% in view of what had been said in Para 809 of the Indra Sahwney. “810 para which otherwise says it cannot cross 50% may need reconsideration. In Andhra, it is 50% for backward classes. In relation to NCC and sports quota, it exceeds by 1% or 2%; that is horizontal. At one point, 5% was sought to be given to Muslims, but it was struck down as there was already a 45% reservation. 4% was later given.” Submitting that different States which had been placed unequally were being treated equally due to the 50% thumb rule, Reddy stated that States should be given a larger leeway under Article 15(4) if they decided to extend reservations. He also averred that Article 324A was with respect to Central institutions alone, and did not take awy the States’ powers under Articles 15 and 16. The Court also heard Advocates Manish Kumar, Karan Bharihoke and AAG Jayanth Muth Raj. Senior Advocate Shekhar Naphade, who is leading Raj on behalf of State of Tamil Nadu, will commence his submissions tomorrow. BACKGROUND The pleas before the Constitution Bench challenges the Bombay High Court judgment passed in June 2019, and submits that the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC) Act, 2018, which provides for 12% and 13% quota to the Maratha community in education and jobs respectively, violated the principles laid in the case of Indira Sawhney v. Union of India (1992) as per which the Apex Court capped the reservation limit at 50%. The Bombay High Court, while upholding the Maratha quota, held that 16% reservation is not justifiable and ruled that reservation should not exceed 12% in employment and 13% in education as recommended by the State Backward Commission. On September 9, 2020, a three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court referred the cases to a larger Bench to determine the issue whether State Government has the power to declare a class as Socially and Economically Backward after the Constitution (102nd) amendment.

NYC officials confirm 1st homeless death from coronavirus

first_imgShooter_Sam/iStock(NEW YORK)– New York officials have confirmed the first homeless death from the novel coronavirus, a grim statistic that homeless advocates fear could rise in coming weeks.“Tragically, one New Yorker experiencing homelessness succumbed to this virus after several days in the hospital – our hearts go out to this individual’s friends and family,” said Isaac McGinn, spokesperson for the city’s Department of Social Services.“What we’re seeing continues to track the trends across our city, state, and country – with more testing taking place, we’re effectively identifying more positives, which gives us the ability to immediately connect each individual to the care they need, whether in hospital or in isolation,” McGinn said.According to the statement from DHS, the homeless resident was a single adult male in his 60s and was hospitalized last week. The man’s identity was not revealed.DHS also confirmed a total of 39 positive cases of COVID-19 among homeless New Yorkers as of March 24. According to the New York Department of Homeless Services, there were 17 coronavirus patients identified from 12 different shelters across the city as of Sunday night. The overall number of homeless residents in New York in 2019 was 78,604, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.The case in New York follows the first death of a homeless person in California last week. The homeless population is particularly vulnerable because they are frequently in institutional settings and cannot always find easy access to handwashing stations and clean facilities.New York City’s social service agency has mobilized special housing units that enable residents to isolate themselves. The rollout this week has included approximately 500 isolation units available across four locations, officials said. As of March 24, there are 65 individuals in isolation units at two of the locations.“Unfortunately, we are well aware of the sad fact that our homeless population is 30 percent more susceptible to the COVID-19 virus than those who are healthy because of their compromised respiratory systems,” said Ivan Klassen, director of community partnerships of the Los Angeles Mission, which provides emergency services, housing, legal counseling and other services to the homeless.At the Los Angeles Mission, staff members are allowing homeless people to stay at the shelter for a longer period of time than typically allowed.“We usually give people 15-day bed tickets but given the situation, people can stay as long as they need,” said Klassen. “We are hoping that essential homeless service providers like us who are taking stringent measures will help stem the tide. Or we will unfortunately see more deaths like the one in NYC.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Knotty problem: do clients care if agents wear ties or not?

first_imgAn estate agency in London has ordered its staff to take off their ties after claiming that clients no longer care whether they wear them or not.Nine-branch London firm James Pendleton says wearing a tie is ‘no longer good for business’ and at a sales meeting earlier this month co-founder and MD Lee Pendleton (pictured, above, centre) asked all his sales staff to cut their ties in half.Pendleton claims that the long-standing business attire style is an antiquated way of doing business when many of his clients themselves rarely wear ties or even suits to work.Staff at his firm, which recently celebrated its 16th anniversary, are judged on their performance rather than appearance, it is claimed.Business attire retired“I looked round the room and thought ‘today’s the day’,” says Pendleton.“Times have changed and our clients aren’t paying for the way we look. It took a while for my world view to change because, when I entered the industry, it was still very traditional, and we all wore suits and ties without fail.“But the world has moved on and clients today don’t value a nice tie any more they value good advice. I want the people who meet our consultants to see them as equals, whose experience they badly need, not drones who need to dress to impress.“My hope is that this helps clients will feel the relationship they have with us is less transactional and more about trust and experience.”     business attire Lee Pendleton james pendleton August 23, 2019Nigel Lewis3 commentsKristjan Byfield, base property specialists ltd base property specialists ltd 23rd August 2019 at 1:33 pmNever had ties or suits in our office since we launched in 2004.

Other agents have often said ‘yeah, but you’re in Shoreditch you can do that’- we work for clients across London, over half our clients don’t live in the UK, our average rent is nearly £2500 pcm and average property value around £800k- so plenty of high market activity. It’s your personality, knowledge and professionalism that wins out in the end- if you’re relying on a suit your focus is in the wrong place.Log in to ReplyChris Orr, 3Men² 3Men² 23rd August 2019 at 8:38 amLooooong overdue. I’ve been saying this for years. Lose the suits as well – how about chinos and branded polo shirts – with light-hearted service message (as opposed to over branded). Smart, casual and still professional.Log in to ReplyChris Reed, Self Employed Self Employed 23rd August 2019 at 8:33 amI remember in 2009 opening our doors in a new agency, I decided that wearing a suit and a tie was not the way to go. The first appointment I went on, I was asked where my tie was, I just explained it was no tie day. Wore a tie but no suit from then onwards. In 2016 I burnt the lot and swore never to wear one again.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
