The ministry, along with background check reports by the Intelligence Bureau, forwards it to the Supreme Court collegium for a final call. The government has maintained that appointment of judges in the high courts is a “continuous collaborative process” between the Executive and the Judiciary, as it requires consultation and approval from various Constitutional authorities. Vacancies keep arising on account of retirement, resignation or elevation of judges and increase in judges’ strength. In June this year, the vacancy position stood at 399, while it was 396 in May. In April, 399 posts of judges were vacant, while the figure was 394 in March. The vacancy position in February stood at 400 and in January, it was 392, according to the data collated by the Department of Justice. Over 43 lakh cases are pending in the 25 high courts.
A one-of-a-kind signed hardback copy of Autobiography by Morrissey, the only copy of the full-colour hardback signed by the author, has sold on eBay for £8,300, with all proceeds going to PETA as a New Year’s present to help prevent the slaughtering of animals for meat.Morrissey signed only one copy of the book – the cover of which pictures the singer-songwriter bare-chested in a swimming pool.“Animals in dire need of help have no better friend than Morrissey”, says PETA’s Mimi Bekhechi. “Whether it’s cruelty to cows, chickens and pigs headed for the table, animals being made into boots and coats or other abuse, Morrissey speaks out forcefully. The proceeds from his signed autobiography add to the work of this true hero to animals.”Morrissey has been a solo artist for 26 years, during which time he has had three number one albums in England in three different decades. He has had 11 top 10 albums (plus nine with The Smiths), and his songs have been recorded by David Bowie, Nancy Sinatra, Marianne Faithfull, Chrissie Hynde, Thelma Houston, My Chemical Romance and Christy Moore, amongst others. In 2006, Morrissey was voted the second-greatest living British icon by viewers of the BBC, losing out to Sir David Attenborough. In 2007, Morrissey was voted the greatest “northern” male, past or present, in a nationwide newspaper poll. In 2012, he was awarded the keys to the city of Tel Aviv.Morrissey’s efforts to help stop animal abuse are legendary and date back nearly three decades. He has teamed up with PETA and its overseas affiliates to encourage people to adopt healthy and compassionate plant-based diets and always have their companion animals spayed and neutered. Morrissey has starred in a number of PETA’s head-turning ad campaigns, and the vegetarian icon recently joined PETA’s fight to pressure department store Fortnum & Mason to stop selling foie gras, which is made from the enlarged and diseased livers of force-fed geese and ducks.In 2009, Morrissey made international headlines when he walked off stage at a US music festival stating that he hoped the “burning flesh” he smelled was human. And as he performs The Smiths’ “Meat Is Murder”, he regularly screens footage of PETA US’ hard-hitting Meet Your Meat exposé. So it was only fitting that Morrissey was named PETA’s Person of the Year in 2011.
Kolkata: The School Service Commission (SSC) candidates who had been part of a hunger strike in the city since February 28, withdrew their movement on Thursday, following the assurance of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who personally met them on Wednesday.Following the Chief Minister’s instruction, five SSC candidates on Thursday met a committee comprising five senior Education department officials at Bikash Bhawan and placed their 14-point charter of demands.
The Education department secretary assured them that they would get back to the candidates after going through their demands. After Thursday’s meeting, the students called off their hunger strike but said that they would again start a similar movement from the first week of June, if their demands are not met by then. SSC Chatra Yuva Adhikar Mancha secretary Insan Ali said: “We had a long discussion with senior Education department officials and submitted files carrying our 14-point agenda. The officials will come up with a decision within April 3. We have withdrawn the strike following the assurance of the Chief Minister, for whom we have the highest regard.” Banerjee had met the candidates on Mayo Road on Wednesday and urged them to end their hunger strike, assuring them that she would look into the matter. She also sought some time from the candidates. She also reminded them that the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) was already on and hence she would not be able to make any specific assurance in this regard. The Chief Minister also told them that her sympathy is with the candidates and also said that her government would try to find a solution in the first week of June, after the conclusion of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. She clarified that nothing can be done immediately as that would violate the MCC and if anything is done in haste, it could be challenged in the court of law. Banerjee instructed state Education minister Partha Chatterjee, who was accompanying her, to include five of the agitating candidates in the expert committee headed by the Education department secretary Manish Jain, to make a comprehensive report on the issue. It may be mentioned here that Thursday was the 29th day of the hunger strike by the SSC candidates. Over 400 SSC candidates from the state had been part of the hunger strike at Mayo Road under the banner of SSC Chatra Yuva Adhikar Mancha. The candidates had accused that there have been some irregularities in the appointment of assistant teachers at state-run schools. They have called for immediate recruitment in the numerous vacancies across the state.
Beijing: China on Friday said it would respond in kind after the US has more than doubled the taxes on Chinese imports worth $200 billion from 10 per cent to 25 per cent, a move that worsens the damaging trade war between the two countries. The Chinese Commerce Ministry said that Beijing will have to take necessary countermeasures in response to the latest tariff hike. “The US has raised the tariff on the $200 billion of China’s exports to the US from 10 per cent to 25 per cent,” the Ministry said in a statement. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: Report “China deeply regrets that it will have to take necessary countermeasures. The 11th round of China-US high-level economic and trade consultations is underway. “It is hoped that the US and the Chinese side will work together and work together to resolve existing problems through cooperation and consultation,” the statement added. A high-level Chinese delegation led by its top trade envoy and the country’s Vice Premier Liu He is in Washington to hammer out a deal with their US counterparts to put an end to the trade war. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests The two-day talks will end on Friday. Meanwhile, a Xinhua report said that Chinese stock markets were little changed after the tariffs came into force, with the Hang Seng index trading up 0.6 per cent and the Shanghai Composite 1.5 per cent higher. The world’s two largest economies had agreed to a 90-day truce in December last year after slapping tariffs on each other’s goods. US President Donald Trump temporarily extended the deadline late February citing “positive progress” in talks with Beijing. This meant that the US would not hike new tariffs on Chinese imports. A On Sunday however, Trump caught the Chinese off guard by announcing to hike levies which would go into force from Friday. Beijing and Washington have been locked in a bruising trade war since July last year after Trump slapped an additional 25 per cent on an initial $50 billion of Chinese goods. Trump followed it through with another 10 per cent on an additional $200 billion in products in September. Chinese hit out at the US by raising levies on American products worth 150 billion. It is the levies imposed in September last year by Trump which that been has been increased to 25 per cent from Friday. This may scuttle the progress both sides have claimed to make in preventing the spat to worsen, a scenario that could impede the world’s economic recovery.
Rabat – Women can now serve as lance corporals, corporals, sergeants, and staff sergeants in Saudi Arabia’s military. Saudi newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat was the first to report the announcement yesterday. The news came in a statement from the Ministry General Directorate of Admission and Recruitment in the Armed Forces. The new rule applies to Saudi Arabia’s land, air, and naval forces, as well as missile forces, and medical services. The move is part of the Kingdom’s “Vision 2030,” which aims to empower women and increase their active participation at all levels of society. Read Also: Saudi Arabia Updates Visa Regulation to Encourage Tourism, Morocco Excluded“Women’s admission into the most important ministry in the kingdom is a major step in the right direction,” Hassan al-Shihiri, a former official at the Saudi Defense Ministry, told Asharq Al-Awsat. In an effort to reduce Saudi Arabia’s dependency on oil, the monarchy is implementing various social and economic reforms to modernize the country and attract more foreign investment. The evolution of Saudi women’s rightsUntil quite recently, the women of Saudi Arabia were limited in mobility, economic opportunity, and rights. The Kingdom has slowly been granting women more freedoms in an effort to improve its image in the international community. In 2012 and 2013, Saudi women were granted the right to ride bicycles in public, compete in the Olympics, practice law, and pass citizenship onto their children. Saudi women were allowed into football stadiums for the first time in September 2017. As of August 2019, Saudi women over the age of 21 can apply for a passport and travel without a male guardian’s permission. Even more recently, the Kingdom opened its doors to tourists from 52 countries and territories and relaxed dress-code requirements for foreign women. Women are now also permitted to visit the country without a man to accompany them. Last year, Saudi women earned the right to drive after decades of campaigns and protests. However, many of the women’s rights activists who fought this battle for years are still imprisoned. Critics of the Kingdom denounce these new freedoms for Saudi women as a smokescreen meant to distract from the ongoing human rights violations in the country. Vision 2030In early 2018, Saudi Arabia first allowed women to apply for military service but their ranks were limited to positions in public security, customs, criminal investigations, and drug combat. Now, women will be able to achieve senior positions in the Saudi Armed Forces. Empowering women has become an important aspect of the country’s economy, according to Shura Council Member Haya al-Maneea. Al-Maneea spoke to Asharq Al-Awsat saying that believes the Kingdom’s national vision emphasizes equality between men and women. “I will not say the ball is now in the women’s court, but I am confident that women’s achievements can soon happen.”

La sécheresse en Amazonie intoxique la planèteL’Amazonie a subi de plein fouet la terrible sécheresse de l’an dernier. Ses conséquences ont été immédiates et sans appel : une augmentation spectaculaire du réchauffement climatique mondial.Des scientifiques britanniques et brésiliens indiquent que la sécheresse qui a sévi en Amazonie en 2010 a eu un impact plus grand que l’activité industrielle et humaine des Etats-Unis en un an sur le réchauffement climatique mondial, rapporte Sciences et Avenir. L’épisode de 2005 était censé être exceptionnel ; celui de 2010 a pris tout le monde de court.À lire aussiCes balles devaient lutter contre la sécheresse mais les spécialistes avaient négligé un détailSi, jusqu’à présent, l’Amazonie, le poumon de la planète, absorbait la majeure partie des émissions de CO2, en période de grande sécheresse elle devient elle-même “une importante source d’émission de gaz à effet de serre, qui accélérera le réchauffement”, indique l’auteur principal du rapport.En effet, en 2010 plus encore qu’en 2005, la sécheresse a entraîné la mort des arbres. Du coup, le rapport scientifique indique que la forêt amazonienne ne sera pas en mesure d’absorber le milliard et demi de tonnes de CO2 rejeté dans l’atmosphère comme elle le fait chaque année. Mais en mourant, l’Amazonie va elle-même laisser s’échapper cinq milliards de tonnes de CO2 dans les prochaines années. Un total de huit milliards de tonnes directement imputé à la sécheresse de l’an dernier.Le 4 février 2011 à 20:11 • Emmanuel Perrin
L’optimisme peut conduire le cerveau à nier les risquesSelon une étude publiée hier, une personne qui voit la vie en rose sera difficile à faire changer d’avis. A l’inverse, une personne plus pessimiste sera plus facile à convaincre que les choses peuvent être moins terribles qu’elle ne l’imaginait.C’est une étude originale qui été publiée hier dans la revue Nature neuroscience. Celle-ci révèle que si voir la vie en rose permet d’éviter les angoisses et le stress, cela peut aussi empêcher d’admettre les risques et d’agir en conséquence. Un phénomène qui serait dû, d’après les observations décrites, à un dysfonctionnement des lobes frontaux du cerveau, associés au contrôle émotionnel. Pour arriver à ces conclusions, des chercheurs de l’University college de Londres ont soumis 19 volontaires à une expérience utilisant l’IRM fonctionnelle, capable de mesurer l’activité du cerveau. À lire aussiMini-cerveaux, “gène homosexuel” et allergie, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 31 aoûtIls ont demandé aux candidats d’estimer la probabilité que toute une série d’événements, désagréables voire catastrophiques, puissent leur arriver à l’avenir : vol de voiture, licenciement, maladie de Parkinson ou encore cancer. Après une courte pause, et alors qu’ils étaient toujours dans l’appareil, les chercheurs ont alors donné les vraies probabilités aux participants et leur ont demandé de réviser leur estimation. Par la suite, les sujets ont également dû remplir un questionnaire destiné à évaluer leur optimisme.Au final, les scientifiques ont ainsi pu constater qu’une fois informés du vrai niveau de risque, les volontaires modifiaient leur estimation seulement s’il était plus bas que ce qu’ils imaginaient initialement. Par exemple, s’ils avaient évalué le risque de cancer à 40% mais qu’on leur avait dit ensuite qu’il n’était que de 30 %, ils avaient tendance, par la suite, à l’estimer à 32 %. Au contraire, s’ils avaient initialement indiqué 10%, ils modifiaient à peine leur estimation, rapporte romandie.com.Le cerveau optimiste ignore le pire “Plus nous sommes optimistes, moins il y a de chances que nous soyons influencés par des informations négatives sur l’avenir”, a commenté une des responsables de l’étude. Sur les scintigraphies du cerveau, les chercheurs ont constaté une activité augmentée des lobes frontaux chaque fois que la réalité était plus satisfaisante qu’ils ne pensaient. Ce qui signifie que la nouvelle information était bien enregistrée et que la personne en tenait compte. En revanche, quand la réalité était pire que leurs suppositions, les plus optimistes étaient ceux qui avaient la plus faible activité des lobes frontaux. Conclusions : leur cerveau ignorait les nouvelles données.Le 16 octobre 2011 à 11:26 • Maxime Lambert

All tours have been slightly modified due to the current lava flow, and will continue to be as needed for dialing conditions.“Hawaii island has always been more than Hawaii Volcanoes National Park,” said Tony DeLellis, co-owner of KapohoKine Adventures. “The challenges of the current lava flow provided the opportunity to expand our tour offerings and come up with creative adventures that showcase the diversity of the entire island and the fun of discovery.”The new tours are as follows:Cap’n Cook by Land and Sea: This tour starts with a tasting at the 24-acre Bay View Farm, which is nestled above Kealakekua Bay.

NFL starters don’t usually play much in the first preseason game of the year, but then again, this is not your usual preseason.The Arizona Cardinals will take the field in Oakland Thursday, just one week after the entire team — including new QB Kevin Kolb — began practicing in Flagstaff.That’s why the signal caller, and some other starters, will likely see extended playing time in the game. “I think it’s going to be, obviously, individualized by position,” Cardinals analyst Ron Wolfley said on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf show Thursday. “I think we’re going to see a lot more of Kevin Kolb — that’s not a big secret.“Coach Whisenhunt has already intimated that he’s going to pay more than the typical starter would in the first preseason game.” Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Top Stories Comments Share
In response to the increasing success of wine tourism, two of South Australia’s oldest wineries have joined Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia (UWEA), a collection of award-winning wineries offering “beyond the cellar door” experiences.The recent additions of Wirra Wirra in McLaren Vale and St Hugo in the Barossa, bring the total to seven SA-based wineries, and 19 nationally in the UWEA collection, which was launched in 2013 to raise the profile of Australia as one of the world’s leading wine tourism destinations and promote it to key international markets such as China, North America, UK and Europe as well as Australia and New Zealand.“We are seeing more and more people coming to Australia or travelling interstate to not only taste great wines but also immerse themselves in an experience that will take them beyond the cellar door and into a blending class or an exclusive session with the winemaker, a cooking class with matching wines or a scenic flight experience for example,” said Sally Cope, Executive Officer, UWEA.SA now has the largest collection of UWEA members and has developed a wine trail which stretches across the three major wine regions – Adelaide Hills, the Barossa and McLaren Vale, offering incredible experiences to visitors to the state.Wirra Wirra, one of South Australia’s oldest wineries, is now much more of a tourism destination than a cellar door. Established in the late 1800s by South Australian cricketer and self-confessed larrikin, Robert Strangeways Wigley, the winery has been built on the spirit of adventure. A recent $850,000 investment into upgrading its facilities to include a provedore style café, meeting rooms and the development of eight behind-the-scenes tours led the winery to taking on membership in UWEA.Visitors can now go beyond a traditional tasting to immerse themselves in one of the new experiences which range from an opportunity to learn the characteristics of Cabernet, Grenache and Shiraz through a masterclass in Trott’s cellar for $50 through to the Signature Day Tour which includes a tour of this historic ironstone winery, Church Block blending session, flagship wine tasting, lunch of spectacular regional produce and ringing the Angelus bell – priced at $280 per person.“The tours not only tell the Wirra Wirra story but also give visitors a deeper understanding of the region as they learn about the geology, vineyards, climate and winemaking. In turn I think they then get more out of the wines they taste as they have a deeper appreciation for their back-story” said Managing Director, Andrew Kay.In the world-renowned Barossa Valley, this story of wine tourism is repeated with the recent opening of the newly built Home of St Hugo honouring the legacy of Hugo Gramp who successfully built Gramp & Sons into an industry pillar. The new multi-million dollar development comprises a private tasting room, cosy wine lounge and fine dining restaurant located within the ruins of William Jacob’s ironstone winery, built over 150 years ago.To showcase the new home, a number of exclusive experiences have been created including the Chef’s Table, a personally guided tour of the historic site and wine tasting followed by an eight course menu priced at $300 per head. The chef’s table seats just six people and is an extension of the kitchen where guests can watch the Chefs work and also interact with them discussing ingredients, techniques and food and wine philosophies.For those looking to step up this up a little, there are a range of bespoke luxury experiences. The Legacy experience includes a private heli flight over the Barossa Valley to the home of St Hugo, a subregional wine journey inspired by Hugo Gramp’s legacy. The experience includes a tasting of some of the oldest vintages and special blends, a private tour of the estate and an eight course lunch created to perfectly match the St Hugo wines – priced at $5000 per person.But for travellers wanting real bragging rights, the winery offers an in-depth overnight Prestige experience from $15,000 per person or they can achieve Sainthood for $150,000, the ultimate in a wine tasting luxury experience which includes a two-night stay in the Barossa, private luxury transfers and personalised sessions with the Head Chef, Mark McNamara. The Sainthood experience goes even further enabling guests the opportunity to name a row of vines and a blending session with Chief Winemaker, Dan Swincer. Over three years their personal blend will be kept safe in St Hugo’s private vault and will be delivered to them by a personal wine ambassador at a time of their choosing at an event for up to eight people.
