While disposing off the petition, the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad imposed costs running into ₹20,000. The same shall be deposited to the Delhi High Court Bar Association Lawyers’ Security and Welfare Fund. While noting that lockdown had caused more human suffering that the COVID19 itself, the court observed that: ‘the lockdown has resulted in loss of jobs for several lakhs of people. Scores of people were forced to walk considerable distance during the lockdown and stand in long queues at Food distribution centers just to have two square meals a day. Several have gone hungry and were not able to get one meal. Many were left shelterless. Several lakhs of migrant labour had to walk on foot and go back to their native places.’ The court also highlighted that economic situation of the country has taken a terrible hit due to the lockdown. The court further highlighted that the government passed Unlock 1.0 to ensure a proper balance between containing the spread of COVID-19 pandemic and at the same time make certain that people are not forced to starvation. Filed by Mr Arjun Agarwal, the petition had challenged the June 30 order of the Ministry of Home Affairs wherein, on the advisory of National Disaster Management Authority, Centre had extended the lockdown in the Containment Zones till 30.06.2020 and issued directive for re–opening of the prohibited activities in the areas outside the Containment Zones. By the said order, the Petitioner argued, MHA has casted the unconventional and unworkable obligation upon the citizens to ensure safety at large of the society and protection from the current global predicament at hand. It was further argued that by the said order, the government has shrugged off its responsibility to protect the Right to Health and other fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution. The Petitioner also submitted that the MHA has failed in facilitating with any specific mechanism in which the current guidelines can be achieved, as the given infrastructure of our country and the manifest violations by the individuals of the previous notifications/ orders/ guidelines issued by the authorities. Therefore, the Petitioner had argued that: ‘The impugned order is manifestly illegal, unconstitutional, perverse and is issued without considering the welfare and civil rights of the citizens at large; and also in abrogation of the obligations of the State as well recognised in Public International Law.’ While disposing of the petition, the court said: ‘Courts do not and cannot act as an appellate authority examining the correctness, suitability and appropriateness of the policy; nor are courts advisors to the executive in matters of policy which the executive is entitled to formulate. Courts cannot interfere with the policy either on the ground that it is erroneous or on the ground that a better or a wiser alternative is available.’Click Here Download Order[Read Order]Next Story

4 December 2007US-based multinational consulting firm Watson Wyatt is to form a strategic alliance with and acquire an initial 20% stake in South African actuarial and employee benefits consultancy Fifth Quadrant.“We are pleased to enter the South Africa market,” Watson Wyatt chief executive John Haley said in a statement on Monday. “Fifth Quadrant is an excellent strategic fit and shares Watson Wyatt’s focus on high-quality client service.”Fifth Quadrant’s core business is the provision of independent advice to institutional clients in the areas of actuarial services, retirement fund consulting, investment consulting and health benefit consulting.It is wholly owned by its executive and non-executive directors, with the executive management team owning over 98% of the business.“We see tremendous growth opportunities in the coming years, not just in South Africa but across the whole continent,” Watson Wyatt regional manager Babloo Ramamurthy said. “This is an exciting opportunity as it further enhances our ability to offer seamless consulting services around the world to our multinational clients.”With offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Fifth Quadrant employs 72 staff, including 15 actuaries. The firm has revenues of R78-million and is the leading asset consulting firm in South Africa (advising 36 of the largest 100 funds by asset size).The strategic alliance with Fifth Quadrant follows on from Watson Wyatt’s recent announcement that it is opening an office in Dubai, its first on-the-ground presence in the Middle East.Both firms have signed a letter of intent and aim to sign a definitive agreement by the end of December, subject to obtaining the necessary regulatory consents.Earlier this year Arlington, Virginia-based Watson Wyatt acquired Heissmann, Germany’s premier firm of actuarial, benefits and human resources consultants, Watson Wyatt Brans & Co, its long-time alliance partner in the Netherlands, and Oakbridge Consulting Group, a human resources consulting firm in Sweden.“Becoming part of Watson Wyatt Worldwide will provide the international credentials increasingly expected by global companies with operations in southern Africa and allow us to advise local South African firms on global best practice,” Fifth Quadrant executive chairman Rustum Omar said.“It will significantly enhance the service we provide to clients and is likely to create some fantastic opportunities for our staff.”SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
Air New Zealand has teamed up with Hollywood actress Anna Faris and New Zealand actor and comedic legend Rhys Darby for its latest safety video, Safety in Hollywood. The airline’s various safety videos are extremely popular with 83 million views online but more importantly they are watched with the same passion on board the aircraft.The latest video, shot at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles, explores several different Hollywood film genres as Darby tries to convince the star of the hit TV show Mom and the Scary Movie films to play a role in Air New Zealand’s new safety video with him. Safety in Hollywood was filmed at four different sets at Warner Bros. with some of the filming locations seen in legendary movies such as Jurassic Park, Casablanca, War of the Worlds and TV series True Blood. More than 20 extras were also involved, including Chester the Chihuahua, who has appeared in Transformers and Grey’s Anatomy. Air New Zealand Head of Global Brand Jodi Williams says it’s been fantastic to partner again with Warner Bros. which helped to produce the airline’s Hobbit inflight safety videos, and to work with the talented Rhys Darby and Anna Faris in Hollywood – the home of the US filmmaking industry.“Anna and Rhys make a great comedic duo and really bring this safety video to life, entertaining customers while at the same time imparting key safety messages,” said Ms Williams.“Our inflight safety videos are now world famous and we know people anticipate their release. The interest in them has been phenomenal and collectively they’ve attracted more than 83 million views online and featured in international news outlets like CNN, BBC, Time.com and The Daily Mail.”Anna Faris said it’s been exciting and an honour to follow in the footsteps of acting legends like Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Betty White, the All Blacks and the cast of The Hobbit to take Air New Zealand’s acclaimed safety videos in a new creative direction.“I really wanted to be part of this project because Air New Zealand has really redefined safety videos with its fun and creative approach. And working with Kiwi actor Rhys Darby was an absolute treat. It’s so easy to tune out when watching a traditional safety video, so it comes as such a delightful surprise when you get something that’s really fun and funny.”Rhys Darby says producing the safety video was a great experience and quite special given he is now based in Hollywood.“Air New Zealand’s safety videos are a Kiwi staple and reflect the Kiwi sense of humour. I think people will really enjoy watching this safety video as it takes them on a magical ride through the movie making world, while still bringing to life the key safety messages.”
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We finished up with planting beans last week and corn has been done since the first week of June. We have some double-crops to put in yet but that is it.The last stuff I planted was all no-till to conserve moisture. We could really use another inch of rain and the ground would soak it up. The corn is not starting to roll yet, but if another week goes by with no rain I’ll be concerned. When it is in the 90s and the corn is growing like crazy, it can get stressed pretty quickly.We had an inch and two-tenths last week. There was a tornado just north of us near Waynesville and Wilmington. If you go a little further south they only got maybe a half-inch. We got a little shower yesterday, maybe a tenth to settle the dust.We are hoping to start with wheat tomorrow and it looks like the rest of the week is going to be beautiful. We could use a little rain on some of the crops, but for the most part things look good. We’ll get this wheat off and get our double-crops in and we’ll be good to go.The wheat quality looks good so far in what I’ve seen. We do have some wheat that looks outstanding and some is not so hot because we had too much rain last fall and there are some holes and some spots that are a little thin.We have been hitting the hay pretty hard. We have a little more first cutting hay to finish and it is getting awfully late. We have some second cutting that will be ready next week and it looks beautiful.
