New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday approached the Supreme Court of India with a petition against the protection of arrest granted to former Income Tax official, SK Srivastava, who was earlier this year compulsorily retired by the Central government on charges of corruption.The Orissa High Court had granted the controversial former civil servant protection from arrest in a CBI case, where the agency had accused him of passing income tax appeals orders in favour of certain assessees and backdating them to an earlier date, in exchange for undue favours. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The CBI had on Wednesday mentioned the matter to a bench headed by Justice NV Ramana, who subsequently allowed the matter to be heard. Soon after Srivastava was compulsorily retired along with several other senior officers of the Income Tax department, the CBI had registered a corruption case against him and raided 13 of his premises, recovering jewellery worth Rs 2.47 crore, Rs 16.44 lakh in cash and watches worth Rs 10 lakh. The probe agency had also found Rs 1.3 crore in bank accounts belonging to him and his family members along with incriminating documents and electronic evidence, officials had said at the time. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KSources here had said that Srivastava had employed a private individual by the name of Amardas to write and type up the appeal orders for him when he was posted as CIT Appeals 1 in Noida and held additional charge of Appeals 2 in Noida in exchange for a monthly salary. In fact, officials here said that Srivastava had decided on 104 IT appeals out of which 13 cases were out of his jurisdiction and purportedly uploaded the orders sometime June 2019, backdating them to December 2018. The CBI has alleged that Srivastava accessed the internal ITBA system of his office between June 11 and June 13 with his RSA token to upload the backdated orders. An RSA token is a personalised pass key issued to officials which allows them to access the ITBA system. Srivastava, a 1989-batch IRS officer, was compulsorily retired on June 10. Moreover, he allegedly manipulated the dispatch records to show that he had dispatched these orders on June 7 when in fact, they were dispatched on June 14. Sources here added that the appeals orders were suspected to be passed in exchange for undue favours.
Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman, Todd Herremans, recently created his own foundation in an effort to help where help is needed.Athlebrities founder Delinda Lombardo was happy to pick the NFL player’s mind about his foundation, giving back and just being an all-around good guy.The interview has been broken into TWO parts, with the other portion on Athlebrities.com.Q: You just launched the Todd Herremans Foundation – What prompted you to establish it? Was there one particular incident that made you think ‘now is the time’?A: Well, there wasn’t any defining moment that made me think, ‘I need to start a foundation.’ I have been involved in numerous charities and events in the past and I felt like I can make a difference and help out even more than I had been. So, the timing was right to start my foundation.Todd Herremans launches his FoundationQ: What’s the first project for the Foundation?A. Well, we actually went on a relief mission and delivered some goods to the first responders in Seaside Heights, NJ. They were all feeling pretty devastated from Superstorm Sandy and we were fortunate enough to gather donations from Monster Energy Drink and Coca-Cola, as well as Folgers and Swiss Miss, that we drove up in a donated Penske truck. It was great to see how happy they were and excited to see that we hadn’t forgotten about themHerremans helps the first responders in in Seaside Heights, NJ.Q: You are recently quoted as saying: “I believe that it’s our responsibility to not only go out and play our best on the field, but to help those around us that aren’t as fortunate as I have been in my life and career.” Can you explain: Why do you believe it’s a celebrity’s/professional athlete’s responsibility to help those who are less fortunate? And do you feel that those with ‘fame’ could be doing more?A. Well, I think we all could do a little more to help, not just people with fame. That’s the beautiful thing about helping others. You don’t have to be rich or powerful. You just have to be a good person. And as an athlete there are so many people that look up to us and we can affect so many lives with the example we set. It’s not a responsibility, it’s a privilege.Todd Herremans visits hurricane-damaged NJQ: The kickoff event for your foundation -Hoops for Help – takes place on Thursday, March 28, 2013. What can fans expect if they attend? Any of your teammates going to be there?A. It is going to be a great night. Yes, I will have some teammates there, but there will also be a couple comedians, live and silent auction items, and all the College basketball drama you could ask for and more.

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has shared the story behind the title of his 1973 blockbuster “Don”, saying that many of the industry veterans were not happy with the choice of the film’s name. On Sunday, the 76-year-old actor celebrated the 41st anniversary of the release of “Don”, which is one of the most popular characters essayed by him. “‘Don’ was a name title that no one in the market approved of. They never understood what it meant and never felt that a name such as ‘DON’ was material for the title of a Hindi film. In fact if truth be told… for many it was quite an amusing title,” Bachchan wrote on his blog. The “Badla” star also shared a funny anecdote on the film title’s comparison with a “very popular brand of vests”. “They were carrying the name ‘DAWN’. DON phonetically sounded much like that brand of undergarment in the market. There was consternation in titling a film that conveyed an undergarment,” he added. The actor revealed after the release of Hollywood classic “Godfather”, the title ‘Don’ became “respectable”. “Much later of course with the ‘Godfather’ series the word garnered enough publicity and reckoning, to be respectable enough. But till then initially it was in the realm of humour.” The film was written by popular writer duo Salim-Javed and directed by Chandra Barot. It also starred Zeenat Aman, Iftekhar, Helen and Pran.
By Alexandra KrauskaRabat – Yangtse Automobile, a Chinese electric car company, announced last week that it would invest 1 MAD billion in Morocco. The company plans to build a factory in Tangier, specializing in electric cars and buses to be made available for sale domestically and abroad.Construction of the factory will begin soon, and that the factory will create about 2,000 jobs, according to the HuffPost Maroc. The company selected Tangier because of its strategic location close to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, its skilled workforce in the automotive industry, and the supply of investment facilities, said Ilyas El Omari, President of the region Tangier-Tetouan- Al-Hoceima.El Omari, who is also head of the Party of Authenticity and Modernity, said that this investment is “an opportunity to allow Chinese economic actors to learn about the economic potential of the area and the facilities Morocco offer to foreign investors. This will also further strengthen the partnership between the two countries in the commercial and industrial areas.”

13 July 2009The top United Nations envoy to Iraq today called for a redoubling of efforts to protect the country’s Christians, as well as its other minority communities, following a series of “orchestrated” bombings over the weekend that hit several churches. The weekend attacks in the capital, Baghdad, and the northern city of Mosul reportedly killed at least four people, and injured dozens more, including children.“This campaign is aimed at terrorizing vulnerable groups and preventing the peaceful coexistence of different religious groups in what is one of the world’s cradles of religious and ethnic diversity,” said Ad Melkert, the newly-appointed Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq. Mr. Melkert, who also heads the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), called on all parties, including the Government, to redouble their efforts to protect minorities in the country.This will contribute to preserving Iraq’s cultural, ethnic and religious diversity, he added.An upsurge in attacks, threats and intimidation had forced more than 12,000 Christians to flee Mosul – Iraq’s second largest city – last October. Some of them later returned after hearing that the security situation had improved.
The Port Dover Lions Club requires assistance from the community to help with Canada Day events held in the community each year.The club does not have enough members to fill all of the required positions for the day to run smoothly.“Our club is having the same problem that most service clubs throughout North America are having, and that is an aging demographic in the club,” said Alan Strang, marketing and communications for the Port Dover Lions. “Our club is quite senior. We want to carry on running these events, but a lot of people don’t realize that the Port Dover Lions do this whole day event on their own.”The Port Dover club was founded in 1938 and has been running the Canada Day celebrations for over 60 years.Positions that need to be filled by volunteers are button sellers, parade marshals, and other jobs depending on the number of volunteers.The position of button seller entails wearing an apron full of buttons, and collecting $2 from each person that purchases one.Strang said the day would be divided into different shifts for the button sellers. The shifts begin at 9 a.m. at the soap box derby, around 11 a.m. at the boat parade, and walking the full parade that runs through town selling to the people watching.“Depending on the response we get, we will assign different people different tasks based on their schedule,” said Strang.Canada Day Buttons are the club’s biggest source of revenue to cover costs like the concert and fireworks in Silver Lake Park, portable washrooms, permits, and insurance. Strang said even with the sales of buttons it is usually a money losing event.People that purchase a button get access to the concert and fireworks that happen in the evening. People that have not purchased a button must pay $2 to enter.“If the event is to continue in its form, as it has for so many years, we’re going to need some assistance from the community,” said Strang.If you are interested and can give a couple hours of your time on July 1, you can contact Peter Annable at email@example.com@postmedia.com
“The challenges we face in terms of access to education for girls in this region are enormous, but they are achievable when we join all our efforts,” UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador Yvonne Chaka-Chaka, the South African singer said at the launch in Dakar, Senegal, of the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI), a wide partnership of UN agencies, national and local governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Girls’ education and quality education in the region face many challenges, from emergencies and HIV/AIDS, to deepening poverty and persistent gender disparities. The result is that about one child out of two is out of school, most of them girls from poor rural areas.Over 80 per cent of children out of school have mothers with no formal education, and region-wide only 86 girls are in school for every 100 boys. “There is so much at stake, economically and politically for this region, that we simply cannot trifle with the contribution of women and girls,” UNICEF acting interim Regional Director Theophane Nikyema said. “The sooner we give more attention to gender equality and equity, to prepare the foundation for girls through a quality, empowering education, the better for both the region and the continent as a whole,” he added. The complexity of the issues preventing girls from accessing school requires a diverse group of partners to address them with the goal of moving girls’ education forward at every level and in every setting, UNICEF said.To reach the MDGs related to girls’ education by their target date of 2015, countries in the region must increase the enrolment rate by 3.5 per cent per year, but the annual increase observed between 1980 and 2001 has been only 1 per cent. The NGO Oxfam predicts that “at the current rate of progress, gender parity will not be reached until 2038.”UN agencies participating in UNGEI include UNICEF, the UN International Labour Organization (ILO), World Bank, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the World Health Organization (WHO).Other key partners include national and local governments, ministries of education, grass-roots organizations, local and international NGOs and donor governments. Partnerships already struck with the African Union (AU) and the Economic Commission for West African States (ECOWAS) are critical in mobilizing country action for UNGEI objectives

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer answers questions during his first press conference back from suspension. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorThe investigative team handling the suspension of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and athletic director Gene Smith did not send Meyer’s phone to a forensics lab to see if he destroyed evidence, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal released Tuesday.According to the report, Smith handed over a phone that contained no text messages, saying “he routinely deletes all texts after sending or receiving them.” The reports state this might violate Ohio open records law and the school’s records-retention policy. Ohio State said, in a statement, the investigative team “conducted a thorough and detailed investigation,” noting that the team interviewed over 40 witnesses, reviewed more than 60,000 documents and 10,000 pages of Meyer’s text messages.“The independent investigative team at Debevoise & Plimpton, the university and the working group of the Board of Trustees all stand by the independent investigation and its conclusions,” Ohio State said via statement.Ohio State fired former wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Zach Smith on July 23 after reports of domestic violence was released against his now-ex-wife Courtney Smith. Meyer and Smith were both suspended on Aug. 1 after they “failed to adhere to the precise requirements of their contracts when they concluded that they needed to await a law enforcement determination to file charges before they reported the otherwise disputed claims of spousal abuse against [former assistant coach] Zach Smith.”Meyer, in his first press conference Monday after completing his three-game suspension, addressed the investigative findings that said the Board of Trustees could not determine whether or not the head coach deleted text messages from his phone. Meyer said he “never deleted a text message” and he “never changed a setting on my phone.” Meyer said an unnamed IT person in the Ohio State football program changed a setting to help him with storage capacity, deleting text messages after one year. He also said there were nothing to hide in the next messages that were deleted. According to public records released by the university, Gene Smith said he had no text or email records on his end when asked about a public records request made by The Lantern. The request had asked for emails and texts between Gene Smith and Meyer between the dates of July 18, 2018, and July 24, 2018, as well as between Oct. 25, 2015, and Dec. 1, 2015, as they pertained to wide receiver coach Zach Smith.“Nothing in my end,” Gene Smith wrote in an email on July 25, 2018 to senior associate athletics director Julie VannattaUpdated at 2:29 p.m. with a statement from Ohio State.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR Officials from the Army and other federal agencies this week celebrated the opening of a new combined heat and power plant at Aberdeen Proving Ground as an energy-efficient innovation that will save the northeastern Maryland installation $25 million over the long term and reduce harmful emissions. The new plant, which won’t fully go on line until Sept. 1, replaces a waste-to-energy plant that produced steam by burning trash in an incinerator next to the proving ground’s Edgewood Area gate. The combined heat and power facility — also referred to as a cogeneration plant — produces steam from the waste heat that comes from a natural-gas-driven turbine used to generate electricity for the proving ground. The steam is then used to heat and cool buildings at Aberdeen.Johnson Controls developed and will operate the plant, which is expected to save the Army about $4.4 million annually, reported the Baltimore Sun. During the ceremony, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. executive presented the proving ground with a $2.5 million check it earned under the utility’s Smart Energy Savers incentives program.The new plant, located on the installation’s Edgewood area, will generate about 50 percent of the current Edgewood electricity load.Maj. Gen. Bruce Crawford, commander of the Army Communications-Electronics Command and Aberdeen’s senior officer, said the combined heat and power plant will go a long way to bolster Army readiness, the service’s No. 1 priority.“The other takeaway is what happens next. There are relationships at work here that did not exist. The real innovation is the long-term and enduring capabilities. I’m excited about the savings and the energy efficiency, but I’m more excited about the opportunities that now exist,” Crawford said.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide by the end of this month whether Affordable Care Act subsidies are legal in Alaska and 33 other states that use the federal health insurance exchange. More than 18,000 people in Alaska could lose subsidies if the court decides in favor of the plaintiffs in the King v. Burwell case. The plaintiffs argue the ACA only allows for subsidies in states that set up their own exchange.Download Audio:Alaska’s insurance director, Lori Wing-Heier is paying close attention to the issue as she waits for a decision:“In the meantime we continue to work on our contingency plan, refine our contingency plan, exploring all options and what will be the most feasible for the state and we’ll be able to discuss it in more detail once the opinion is released.”Wing-Heier says Governor Bill Walker is committed to ensuring that Alaskans who are receiving subsidies won’t lose them. The average subsidy in Alaska is more than $500 each month.Without the subsidies, the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates the cost of the premiums would spike by 500 percent.

Despite additional safety work being completed at Bottomhouse crossroads – which is located on the main A523 Leek to Ashbourne road – more incidents have been reported. Gateways and signage have been improved in the area following a campaign by Ipstones Parish Council, who were concerned over the number of incidents in the area. However, since the works have been completed several more accidents have taken place. Now members of Ipstones Parish Council are to seek to reduce the speed limit along the main road between two speed cameras located on the highway from 50mph to 40mph. On Wednesday, March 6, police, paramedics and firefighters were called to a collision at the crossroads. Read MorePolice investigating after break-in at shop Speaking at the monthly meeting of Ipstones Parish Council, chairman Councillor Linda Malyon, said: “There was another accident last week and one earlier in the month, one was quite bad, I understand. “I think that there should be a 40mph speed limit between the two speed cameras which are located on both sides of the crossroads on the main road. When it is foggy it is not safe. “We should write to the county highways and the Department of Transport to get the speed limit reduced in this area.” poll loadingWhat should the speed limit be at Bottomhouse Crossroads?0+ VOTES SO FAR30mph40mph50mph60mphOther Mrs Malyon was supported by Councillor John Williams, who said he thought it was a good idea for a 40mph limit in the area, while Councillor Heather James said that there should definitely be a 40mph limit along the main road near the crossroads. Councillor Philip Barks said: “Some places have flashing lights, we could go down this way to warn drivers that they were approaching a busy crossroads. When it is foggy visibility is impaired.” Councillors unanimously agreed to contact the county highways and the Department of Transport to look at reducing the speed limit in the area.
