The Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has highlighted the advisory issued by Respondent No. 1 on 16.03.2020 on Social Distancing measures wherein religious leaders have been advised to regulate mass gatherings and to prevent overcrowding. Further, on 23.03.2020, the Prime Minister of India announced a national lockdown for a period of 21 days to prevent the spread of the virus. MIGRANT WORKERS AT ANAND VIHAR BUS TERMINAL However, despite the lockdown, on 28.03.2020, “tens of thousands of migrant workers from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, who were working in Delhi assembled outside the Anand Vihar Bus Terminal, Delhi, elbowing each other to board the first available bus that would take them to their hometown or village”. The plea states that no action was taken by Respondent No. 5, 2 and 3 to stop these workers. In fact, they arranged DTC buses to drop them at the terminal. The process was similarly repeated n 29.03.2020, “which clearly shows that the Respondents have failed to control the people from coming out from their respective houses which lead to create overcrowding at the bus station and UP-Delhi border”. The plea states that in order to tackle the spread of the virus, everyone must practice social distancing. However, despite knowing the same, the Respondents failed to stop the migrant workers and thereby violated Article 21 of the Constitution of India and provisions of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and Indian Penal Code, 1860. NIZAMUDDIN MARKAZ The plea goes on to highlight another incident which stems from the event which took place between 15.03.2020 and 17.03.2020 at a Markaz in Nizamuddin, wherein 24 people who had attended the event, tested positive. It has been averred that more than 2000 delegates were present at the Markaz and many have tested positive due to cluster transmission of the virus. In light of the same, Respondent No. 2 has failed to arrest the Nizamuddin Markaz chief Maulana Saad, who had organized the event. The plea submits that “the Respondent No. 2 has failed to explain till now that why huge number of people were allowed to be assembled at Anand Vihar Bus Terminal and Markaz in Nizamuddin” and that this failure evidently portrays the lack of inaction in protecting the citizen of the country from the spread of the virus. The plea also alludes to statements made by BJP Minister Mr. Kapil Mishra wherein he states that the Delhi Government “made announcements in the colonies where UP-Bihar migrants are staying in Delhi, informing them that the Delhi govt-run DTC buses will take them to the Anand Vihar Bus Terminal”. It has further been averred that the Delhi Govt has purposely cut the electricity and water supply of migrant workers, and that this requires an inquiry from the CBI. On the basis of the same, the following reliefs have been sought by the Petitioner: 1. Direction directing the Respondents to show what appropriate steps were taken by them to prevent the spread of the virus. 2. Direction directing the Respondents and the concerned authorities under them to take measures to stop people from gathering at one place and to enforce proper safety for the people who had gathered at the terminal and Markaz. 3. Direction laying down guidelines, devising strategy to protect the fundamental rights by the Respondents and the concerned authorities. 4. Direction directing the CBI to investigate the matter regarding failure to control the assembly of people at the terminal and Markaz. The petition has been listed before the Supreme Court on April 13. Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Storylast_img read more

Civil Society Organizations, Lawyers & Academicians Write To MP High Court Chief Justice For De-Congestion Of Prisons

first_imgNews UpdatesCivil Society Organizations, Lawyers & Academicians Write To MP High Court Chief Justice For De-Congestion Of Prisons LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK10 May 2021 12:44 AMShare This – xA group of 27 civil society organisations, lawyers, academics and journalists have written a letter to the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court requesting immediate decongestion of prisons of the state in the light of second wave of Covid19. The letter is signed by 10 human rights organization and 17 eminent academicians, lawyers and journalists including Advocate Apar Gupta, Advocate Gautam Bhatia, Advocate Arvind Narrain, Prof. Mrinal Satish, Prof. Pratiksha Baxi, Prof. Noam Chomsky and Prof. Kalpana Kannabiran. Organizations like Alternative Law Forum(ALF), Article 24 Trust, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative(CHRI), Criminal Justice and Police Accountability Project(CJAP) are also among the signatories.In the letter, the signatories have expressed concerns that high overcrowding has endangered prisoners’ right to life and right to health during the rapid spread of the virus in the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. It notes that Madhya Pradesh’s prisons have a capacity of housing between 28,000-29,000 individuals but as of 31st March, 2021 they hold 49,763 individuals in total and 32,263 undertrials, with overcrowding at an all time high of 174%. 115 of MP’s 131 jails are overcrowded; seven jails have an occupancy of over 300%. The undertrial population is nearly two-thirds of the overall prison population. The letter reasons that the increase in prison population is predominantly due to indiscriminate arrests by the police, even for minor offences, and limited access to bail due to the limited functioning of the courts during the pandemic. The letter requests the Chief Justice of the High Court to undertake urgent measures for granting bail, extending emergency parole and ensuring the functioning of the Undertrial Review Committees as per the Standard Operating Procedure drafted by NALSA. It notes that following accused should be granted immediate bail- all accused persons in judicial custody for offences punishable by 7 years or lessall undertrials over 45 years of ageundertrial women including pregnant women and women with children, as well as gender minorities.undertrials with comorbidities who are at risk of contracting COVID as well as other critically ill inmates.undertrials with disabilities, including long-term physical, mental, intellectual, or sensory disabilities, as defined by the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPwD) Act, 2016. The letter also lists categories of convicts whose emergency parole shall be extended which includes all convicts over the age of 45 years, pregnant women, women with children, gender minorities, convicts with comorbidities and convicts with disabilities as defined under the relevant laws. Other requests in the letter include universal and continuous testing in prisons, issuing vaccination orders for prisons in line with WHO guidelines, increasing prison budgets for improving health infrastructure, public declaration of information about positive infections, testing and vaccination in prisons in order to ensure accountability and timely prison wise reporting of above directions through Director General of Prisons. The letter also stresses importance of long term measures to so that the prison population remains manageable even in normal circumstances. In 2020, a PIL (WP No. 8391/2020) had also been filed before the Madhya Pradesh High Court pleading decongestion which remains pending.On May 7, the Supreme Court had passed a slew of directions for de-congestion of prisons. The Court had directed, inter-alia, the High Powered Committees of States to release all prisoners who were granted emergency parole last year during the pandemic.

It didn’t take a computer and a team from MIT to fix a lawn mower. If you had a wrench and good eyes, you could fix them yourself. Products were designed to last.“I appreciate people like the Carter Brothers who designed and made products for the long haul,” he said. “Every time I crank Old Mountain Goat, I think about them and the many others who were committed to producing products that they could stand behind and products people would come back for.”“I don’t know when Carter Brothers quit making the E-Z Mow but it was a sad day.” Book Nook to reopen Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Tatum’s vintage E-Z Mow lawn mower still in use Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Windley Wade Tatom stands next to his 1964 Carter Brothers E-Z Mow lawn mower. (Submitted Photo)When Windley Wade Tatom moved into a new house in May 1964, he found that the one-acre yard was going to be a bit more than the average push-mower could handle.“At that time, the two best heavy-duty mowers were the high wheel Yazoo and the Carter Brothers E-Z Mow that was made at Hamilton Crossroads just south of Brundidge,” Tatom said. “I managed to scrape up $125 and headed south.”Tatom came home to Troy with one of the best purchases that he has ever made. “After a half century, we – the E-Z Mow and me – are still partners and going strong,” he said, laughing.Tatom said the E-Z Mow was a real heavy duty, simply designed mower meant to provide service with the least amount of maintenance.“Carter Brothers made other small farm and garden implements that were simple and easy to work with,” he said. “The E-Z Mow had one weak point in the design. It had self-propelled drive rollers resting on the knobby thread tire with pressure from a strong spring. This worked fine until the grass was wet and then you had to really push the mower to get it to go forward.” The Carter Brothers realized the singular flaw in the design of the E-Z Mow and it didn’t take long before the company redesigned the propelling system with a splined roller and tire that operated like a gear.“With this system in place, the mower was like a tank. It could climb over anything in its path, even Mount Everest,” Tatom said laughing. “I named my E-Z Mow ‘the Mountain Goat.’ It was as comfortable as an ol’ shoe and loved it.”In 1981, Tatom bought a second E-Z Mow because he then had two locations to keep up.“But now, since it’s the baby and only 33 years old, it only does the light work. Old ‘Mountain Goat still takes care of the rough stuff along the fence rows and out parcels,” he said.

Good Samaritans honored for rescuing girl after dad jumped in front of NYC subway

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The two good Samaritans who sprung into action to help save a 5-year-old girl after her father jumped in front of a subway while holding her were honored Wednesday for their heroism.“Courage is the ability to do something even though you’re scared, even though you’re frightened,” Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. said. “That is exactly what Jairo did. That is exactly what Antonyo did in assisting Jairo.”Jairo Torres and Antonyo Love were declared the “Batman and Robin” of the Bronx and presented with certificates of merit.“Just listening to their version, I am full of fear,” Diaz said at the ceremony. “And yet these two men acted — and whatever I’m feeling today — they felt at that moment a million times over. It is the true meaning of being a hero.”“Here in the Bronx, we have Batman and Robin,” Diaz added.The girl’s father had jumped in front of a No. 4 train at the Kingsbridge Station in the Bronx on Monday while he was holding her.In cellphone footage of the little girl’s rescue, Torres and Love can be seen on the tracks coaxing her to come out from under the subway. She lowly crawled out from under the train and the men helped lift her up to the platform, where a crowd of witnesses embraced her.While the girl managed to escape without serious injury, her dad, identified as Fernando Balbuena-Flores, was pronounced dead at the scene.Torres, who witnessed the entire incident, said his first thoughts immediately went to the little girl.“I jumped right away because I know where the baby is,” Torres said. “In my heart, I feel the baby is still alive.”He said amidst the chaos, he didn’t realize until after that Love, who heard the commotion and ran up to the platform to help, was by his side on the tracks.While Love was helping, someone stole his backpack that contained medication and other personal belongings, Diaz said. He urged whoever took it to return it, no questions asked.Torres and Love did not know each other from before, but embraced at Wednesday’s press conference. Love appeared to be unable to speak about the incident.Niurka Caraballo, who identified herself as the child’s mother, said Monday that she was planning on bringing her daughter home from the hospital later that day.“Please respect my pain. Thank you for being there, thank you for having my back,” Caraballo told New York ABC station WABC in Spanish. “Thank you to the 52nd precinct; I’m home now and they’re still reaching out to make sure that I made it home OK, that I eat, that my daughter eats. Thank you, but please respect my pain.”Diaz took a moment at the press conference to highlight that Torres is an immigrant and Love has health problems.“People tend to vilify certain communities. People tend not to put their resources,” Diaz said. “People marginalize individuals in communities, but here in the Bronx — if it wasn’t for these two men working together — we would have had even more of a tragedy.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Phony coronavirus vaccine site shut down by federal agents

first_imgMarsBars/iStock(WASHINGTON) — Federal investigators announced Monday they seized a website that they say fraudulently offered coronavirus vaccines in order to allegedly steal users’ personal information.The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland seized, which purported to be the website of an actual biotechnology company and used trademarked logos from Pfizer, the World Health Organization and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.The site collected user’s personal data “in order to use the information for nefarious purposes, including fraud, phishing attacks, and/or deployment of malware,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.“Members of the public should not provide personal information or click on links in unsolicited e-mails and should remember that the COVID-19 vaccine is not for sale. The Federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to people living in the United States,” Acting U.S. Attorney Jonathan F. Lenzner said in a statement.An analysis of the site by the United States Department of Homeland Security investigations indicated the domain name was created on April 27 using an IP address located in Strasbourg, France, and the registrant country was listed as Russia, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.The fraudulent website contained a “Select your city” drop-down menu and “Apply” and “Upload application” buttons, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.After a user selected a city and clicked “Apply,” a PDF file written in Cyrillic was downloaded to their computer, and they were instructed to fill it out and upload it back onto the site, federal investigators said.“Individuals visiting the site will now see a message that the site has been seized by the federal government and be redirected to another site for additional information,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release.The federal government has seized nine websites that sought to illegally profit off the pandemic, Lenzner said. The other fraudulent sites offered vaccines and COVID-19 antibody treatments, according to investigators.The U.S. Attorney’s office recommends that anyone who suspects online fraud concerning the pandemic call the National Center for Disaster Fraud Hotline at 1-866-720-5721 or log onto © 2021, ABC Audio.

The museum, in partnership with Greater Manchester AmbulanceService, has set up a training scheme for staff to learn how to operateautomatic external defibrillators. Noise risk Owners of pubs and clubs need to be better educated about the dangers ofexposing employees to too much noise, according to research for the HSE. Therewas a definite potential effect of noise, but it was not possible to establishthe number of individuals whose hearing may be impaired as a result. Guide for stress The CIPD launched a new guide to managing occupational stress to coincidewith October’s European Week for Safety and Health at Work. It looks at ways ofsolving problems so that individuals feel supported. Online advice An online resource on workplace health matters has been set up by the HealthDevelopment Agency. Called Workplace Health and Wellbeing, it was launched inOctober. safety Ministers are being urged to encourage employers to take more responsibilityfor accidents involving employees killed while driving for work. The TUC saidsuch action would help reduce the 1,000 employees fatally injured every year onthe roads. It called on the HSE to investigate the safety management practicesof all employers whose staff drive at work. Fine for rail firm A railway maintenance firm has been fined £17,500 for breaching health andsafety rules, following an investigation into electrical burns sustained by atrack worker. GT Railway Maintenance was investigated by the HSE after trackworker Simon Rosier received burns while loosening nuts on a track adjacent toa live 650-volt conductor rail. Oestrogen protects against stress Female nurses are less susceptible to stress and serious stress-relatedillnesses than their male colleagues because of the protective properties ofoestrogen, a study by doctors at Greenwich University has concluded. The urineof 315 male and female nurses was studied and stress hormones were found to besignificantly greater in younger males. Heat stress Large parts of UK industry have difficulty in managing and assessing heatstress, a study by the HSE has concluded. The Human Thermal EnvironmentsLaboratory, Loughborough University, which carried out the research, has nowdeveloped a checklist risk-assessment method. Fall arrest equipment The HSE has published guidance on using fall arrest equipment when workingat height. Inspecting fall arrest equipment made from webbing and rope advisesemployers on effective inspection regimes, including the frequency and type ofinspections, the types of defects and damage to look out for. Transport accidents The results of a discussion document on preventing workplace transportaccidents have been published by the HSE. Around 70 people are killed and 1,200seriously injured each year in workplace transport accidents.

Finite size scaling in the solar wind magnetic field energy density as seen by WIND

first_img[1] Statistical properties of the interplanetary magnetic field fluctuations can provide an important insight into the solar wind turbulent cascade. Recently, analysis of the Probability Density Functions (PDF) of the velocity and magnetic field fluctuations has shown that these exhibit non- Gaussian properties on small time scales while large scale features appear to be uncorrelated. Here we apply the finite size scaling technique to explore the scaling of the magnetic field energy density fluctuations as seen by WIND. We find a single scaling sufficient to collapse the curves over the entire investigated range. The rescaled PDF follow a non Gaussian distribution with asymptotic behavior well described by the Gamma distribution arising from a finite range Levy walk. Such mono scaling suggests that a Fokker- Planck approach can be applied to study the PDF dynamics. These results strongly suggest the existence of a common, nonlinear process on the time scale up to 26 hours.last_img read more

High density of ice krill (Euphausia crystallorophias) in the Amundsen sea coastal polynya, Antarctica

first_imgHigh densities of ice krill Euphausia crystallorophias were observed along six acoustic transects within the Amundsen Sea Coastal Polynya, Antarctica. Two-frequency acoustic backscatter data was examined in the austral summers of January 2011 and February 2012. A dB identification window (Sv120−38) identified ice krill dominating the acoustic backscatter. The density of ice krill, calculated with the stochastic distorted-wave born approximation model, ranged between 4.5 and 30 g wet mass m−2 for each transect (a mean of 16 g wet mass m−2 for all transects), these high values are an order of magnitude higher than recorded previously in the Ross Sea Polynya. High densities were detected along the ice shelf and near the boundary between pack ice and coastal polynya, and we postulate that these could be important habitats for ice krill. The high densities observed along the transects make ice krill a potentially important, but poorly known contributor to these high-latitude shelf food webs.last_img read more
