The Washington DC Superior Court has denied a request for an injunction to block the DC Lottery’s no-bid contract with Intralot, meaning the Lottery can resume work towards launching the district’s mobile sports betting platform.The decision by Judge John Campbell forms part of mobile app developer Dylan Carragher’s lawsuit against the District, which argues the deal violates the Home Rule Act that established the powers of Washington DC.In September, Judge Joan Zeldon issued a temporary restraining order suspending the contract until the decision on the injunction was made.As part of its request for an injunction, Carragher’s legal team argued that the Act, “cannot be amended of circumvented by amendment to DC law by the district government”. The DC Council’s move to bypass the typical procurement process by amendment was therefore illegal, it claimed.Read more on iGB North America.

The commission consisted of refurbishing an apartment which is intended to have the master bedroom as protagonist and especially as the main entry of natural light throughout the house.
The most important and where the owners put more emphasis was the quality of natural light. Their previous house was dark with endless corridors, used only distribution into rooms. For the new project they demanded light inside the house and all its precincts. For this, large windows in common areas, skylights and windows in secondary bedrooms with direct views to the mountains and sunrise from the east were projected. Save this picture!© Antonio ArosA second floor for exclusive use of the homeowners is projected, including desks, ample space for the bed, a bathroom with modern amenities while respecting simplicity and good taste parameters. All the furniture: closet, bed backs, desks, etc. were custom designed, achieving through this a good marriage between architecture and furnishing. Design of the terraces on the second floor contributes to its extension outwards, achieving a space that is not secretive but still private.Save this picture!Floor PlanMaterials of the original house, like wood trusses used for external cladding and some furniture inside were rescued.

Promoting higher density / micro multifamily living seems like an oxymoron at this juncture, but this new housing complex does something others typically don’t. It has been scientifically proven that good health is linked to our connection to the outside, and this project brings nature into the interior of each residential unit. This is an example that being connected to the outdoors doesn’t need to be compromised by high density / micro-housing living.Save this picture!© Winquist PhotographyWhite Stone Flats brings timeless modern design to historic downtown Phoenix, Arizona An undersized infill lot with difficult setback and zoning requirements defies all odds. Situated in the Triangle Neighborhood of downtown Phoenix, Arizona, this modern two-story development is challenging every aspect of contemporary downtown living. With White Stone Flats, architectural principal Benjamin Hall of Benjamin Hall Design designed and constructed, an eye-catching project on a dirt infill lot that the city had little hope for. The project demonstrates the potential of urban renewal through thoughtful design and creates a tranquil space right in the heart of a bustling downtown. The ideas behind White Stones Flats were curated by Benjamin Hall over a long period of time. The root idea of finding solace and refuge in a busy city developed through the process of distilling the natural elements of sky, sound, touch, and sunlight. Instead of focusing its attention outwards and beyond like most projects concerned about appearance in a city, the Flats reverses its attention inwards and focuses on the small details and simple gestures of living, that we often overlook in our daily lives.Save this picture!© Winquist PhotographySave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Dasovich PhotographyThe act of opening a door, turning on the water, and simply lying in bed and looking at the stars is made intentional through details. The ideas Hall first started exploring came from design projects early in his studies at The University of Arizona, and subsequently the Danish International School. Hall has built on this foundation throughout his career, adding inspiration from experiences living in Copenhagen and traveling to Mexico City. The main objective of White Stone Flats was to capture the functions of the typical home in an intentional, fundamentally smaller space. This micro multifamily housing complex hosts four identical units with a 730 square-foot footprint each. Identical floor plans provide each resident with a private outdoor atrium. Each interior space captures natural light from this atrium and the downstairs shower cab be opened up to shower in this private garden space. White Stone Flats setting is a comfortable, two-person home that targets the demand for modern, architectural, and high-quality urban living. The design itself is conscious of the City’s desire for increased density while respecting the context of the neighborhood’s one-story historic homes. White Stone Flats stands only 20ft. tall, while the city allowance for the property is 48ft. The project utilized an existing undersized dirt lot (infill project), considered unbuildable in the already-established neighborhood fabric. White Stone Flats is now seen as a case study to larger developers who often scrap and combine multiple parcels into larger swaths, erasing the existing neighborhood to achieve their financial objective. White Stone Flats reaches individuals who desire to live in an authentic piece of architecture without having the funds to build a custom project themselves.Save this picture!© Dasovich PhotographyAfter noticing that most homes in the neighborhood bear heavy window coverings to protect from the harsh Arizona heat, Hall designed a modern solution. The exterior shell of the building and the interior walls are constructed from specially fabricated foam-filled CMU blocks. To complete the project Hall utilized 42 different block types with two subtle but different surface treatments. The exterior side of the blocks is designed to reject solar heat gain while the interior surface reflects and amplifies natural light, creating a light-filled, welcoming living environment without the need for an abundance of exterior windows. “It was like a game of chess,” explains Hall. “The goal was to create a humble but intelligent project one that adheres to all existing zoning challenges while maximizing comfort on a, particularly small site. Understanding material behavior and selecting smart finishes are all moves on the chessboard. It’s a tantalizing challenge to dream of something so pure and bring it to fruition. From the time things exist on paper to the moments they take shape by actual human hands, we are continuously reminded of the intent of the project: Quality over Quantity.”Save this picture!© Dasovich PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessEcoKid Kindergarten / LAVASelected ProjectsGarden House / Studio Guilherme TorresSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officebenjamin hall designOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPhoenixOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on April 17, 2020Cite: “White Stone Flats / benjamin hall design” 17 Apr 2020.

S. Panduranga v. State of Karnataka (2013) 3 SCC 721, that an appeal against an order of conviction cannot be dismissed in default but must be taken up and decided on merits even if the appellant in-person or the counsel representing him, is not present. Even though the counsel for the state did not appear, the bench, taking into account the dictum laid down in the above cited case, set aside the High Court order and remanded the matter to be disposed of on merits.The court, taking note that the accused has been in jail for a period of almost 11 years, also granted him bail subject to the satisfaction of the trial Court.K. S. Panduranga v. State of KarnatakaIn KS Panduranga, the Supreme Court bench comprising of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra summarized the principles laid down in this regard by a three judge bench in Bani Singh and others v. State of U.P 1996 SCC (4) 720 as follows:(i) that the High Court cannot dismiss an appeal for non- prosecution simpliciter without examining the merits; (ii) that the court is not bound to adjourn the matter if both the appellant or his counsel/lawyer are absent; (iii) that the court may, as a matter of prudence or indulgence, adjourn the matter but it is not bound to do so; (iv) that it can dispose of the appeal after perusing the record and judgment of the trial court; (v) that if the accused is in jail and cannot, on his own, come to court, it would be advisable to adjourn the case and fix another date to facilitate the appearance of the accused-appellant if his lawyer is not present, and if the lawyer is absent and the court deems it appropriate to appoint a lawyer at the State expense to assist it, nothing in law would preclude the court from doing so; and (vi) that if the case is decided on merits in the absence of the appellant, the higher court can remedy the situation.In the said case, the contention put forth was that the High Court could not have heard the appeal in the absence of the counsel for the accused and proceeded to deliver the judgment. Reliance was placed by the appellant counsel on a two judge bench decision of the Supreme Court in Mohd. Sukur Ali v. State of Assam. The Court observed that the observation in Mohd. Sukur Ali (supra) that the court should not decide a criminal case in the absence of the counsel of the accused as an accused in a criminal case should not suffer for the fault of his counsel and the court should, in such a situation, must appoint another counsel as amicus curiae to defend the accused and further if the counsel does not appear deliberately, even then the court should not decide the appeal on merit is not in accord with the pronouncement by the larger Bench in Bani Singh (supra).Recent Judgments By SCLast year, the Supreme Court, in Shankar vs. State of Maharashtra, had observed that, the appeal filed by the accused against the conviction can be disposed of on merits only after hearing the appellant or his counsel. “Where the advocate for the appellant is absent on the date of hearing, the Court shall either appoint an amicus curiae and then decide the appeal. Once the appeal against the conviction is admitted, it is the duty of the Appellate Court either to appoint an advocate as amicus curiae or to nominate a counsel through Legal Services Authority and hear the matter on merits and then dispose of the appeal. When the appellant was not represented by the advocate, in our view, the High Court ought not to have decided the matter on merits and the impugned order is liable to be set aside and the matter is remitted back to the High Court.”, it was observed by the bench comprising of Justices R. Banumathi and AS Bopanna. In Christopher Raj vs. K Vijayakumar, the same bench had held that, the High Court, in a criminal appeal, cannot reverse the acquittal without affording any opportunity of hearing to the accused or by appointing an amicus curiae to argue the matter on his behalf if he does not enter appearance.

News UpdatesIPS Officer Rashmi Shukla’s Statement To Be Video Recorded In Hyderabad, No Arrest Till The Next Date-Bombay High Court Sharmeen Hakim6 May 2021 2:31 AMShare This – xPTI imageThe Bombay High Court has allowed a team of Mumbai Police to video record senior IPS officer Rashmi Shukla’s statement in Hyderabad, where she is posted as ADG CRPF. The Maharashtra government informed the court that they would not arrest her till the next date. Shukla’s statement will be recorded in connection with an FIR against unknown persons for leaking sensitive documents related to the police-political nexus in police transfers, for offences under section 5 of the Official Secrets Act, section 30 of the Indian Telegraph Act and sec 43 of 66 of the Information Technology Act. A division bench of Justices SS Shinde and Justice Manish Pitale heard Shukla’s petition on Thursday and recorded Senior Advocate Darius Khambata’s statement for the State. The bench, however, clarified that the CBI can continue investigating allegations against former State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, of which Shukla is an integral part. The ex-CP Param Bir Singh has cited Shukla’s report while making corruption allegations against Deshmukh. “ASG submits that the CBI has commenced the investigation. This order is not to be construed as any hindrance to any further investigation for the CBI. These directions are confined to the present petition only.” Mumbai police’s cyber cell had summoned Shukla to appear on April 26 and 28, and subsequently on May 3, which is when she approached the court. She cited the pandemic for her inability to travel. The cyber cell registered an FIR against unknown persons under the Official Secrets Act after former CM BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis leaked call intercepts of IPS officers and other sensitive details. The calls were recorded when Shukla was heading the State Intelligence Department (SID). Fadnavis cited a letter purportedly written by Shukla to the then Director General of Police about alleged corruption in police transfers. Maharashtra’s Chief Secretary Sitaram Kunte had alleged in a report submitted to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray that it appeared that Shukla herself had leaked the confidential information (to Fadnavis). “Why is the CBI so interested?”During the hearing, the court first asked Khambata what was the maximum punishment for the offences under which the case was registered. “Three years,” Khambata said. “So the state will have to invoke section 41 (issuing notice to the accused), if the offence is not punishable with 7 yrs.” Justice Shinde noted. However, Senior Advocate Mahesh Jethmalani appearing on behalf of Shukla said the State should make a statement that there will be no arrest. To this, Khambata said, “I want to make an alternate suggestion. We don’t know when will the pandemic get over and if she can’t leave from Hyderabad, we will send a team and will do a recording of her statement. But she must cooperate.” Jethmalani agreed, but insisted on a statement. “They should make a statement they will not arrest her.” “It will be graceful on the part of the State to make a statement,” the bench said. Khambata then took instructions and submitted, “We don’t intend to arrest her till the next date.” He, however, said that the statement should be considered as one made under section 161 of the CrPC and that it would be video recorded without anyone’s presence in the room. Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, appearing for the CBI said, “This entire matter arises from a complaint of (former) Mumbai Police Commissioner (Param Bir Singh) alleging large scale corruption, to which Khambata objected. “Why is the CBI so interested?” The bench then asked ASG about CBI’s role in Rashmi Shukla’s current petition. “The entire case arises from a complaint made by Param Bir Singh which includes recordings authorised by Rashmi Shukla as Addl DG.” The bench then recorded Khambata and Jethmalani’s statements and adjourned the matter beyond vacation. In her petition, Shukla has said she is one of the senior-most IPS officers of 1988 Cadre in police Service for more than 30 years, her plea states. She has accused the State of arm-twisting her by bogus and frivolous case. “The petitioner has exposed the nexus between Ministers and Politicians and other gross corruption involved in assigning postings to police officers. This reveals the courage and integrity of the petitioner in performing her official duties and making her best endeavours to expose and eliminate corruption by bringing the guilty to books.” The Maharashtra Government’s petition against two paragraphs of the CBI’s FIR against Deshmukh, and Param Bir Singh’s petition against a Thane FIR could not be heard due to paucity of time. The bench granted them the liberty to approach the vacation bench.

Diane Palmer(HONOLULU, Hawaii) — A Navy corpsman’s mom hopes her missing son is still alive after he vanished following a night on the town with a few Marine buddies, taking in a state fair and having drinks at a popular bar, ABC News has learned.Seaman Shaun Palmer, 24, who is assigned to the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii, was last seen at Kelley O’Neil’s around 4 a.m. Sunday. He ordered and then canceled two rideshare pickups on his mobile phone — and hasn’t been heard from since.“I’m praying he’s just really sick or maybe he got beaten up and his phone broke down and he’s hurting but safe,” his mom, Diane, told ABC News.Diane said she’s heading to Hawaii on Wednesday and hopes to inspire a massive search to track down her one and only child.“We need to get search parties out in Hawaii,” she said. “What are we waiting for? We need to find my kid!” A statement provided by a Hawaii-based Marine Corps spokesman confirmed that there is a dedicated search underway to locate the missing sailor, whose case for now is classified as an “unauthorized absence.”“Seaman Palmer’s command is coordinating with NCIS and local authorities to find the missing sailor. The safety of our sailors and Marines is our primary concern and we hope and pray for his safe return,” the statement said.Palmer is a corpsman assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, according to a separate statement.His mother said that while her son wasn’t under any strict curfew to be back at base Sunday night, ABC News has learned that he was supposed to be at an aid station at 8 a.m.When he was a no-show, Diane said she then received a phone call around 4 a.m. on Monday morning by military personnel who identified themselves as members of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.“They wanted to know if I’d heard from him,” said the mother, who said she hasn’t slept since the phone call. “But Shaun was already missing for 24 hours.” Diane said that she learned that Palmer and two Marines spent Sunday visiting a state fair.She knows this because she caught a post her son, a native of Iowa, left on his SnapChat account that she said included a typed message reading: “Someone say state fair?” as he made a “funny face,” Diane said.The three servicemen then made their way to Kelley O’Neil’s bar, a popular military hangout known for live music. The mother, who has spoken with NCIS investigators as well as Honolulu Police Department detectives, said that she learned that Palmer was at the bar until around 4 a.m.One of the Marines returned to base.Palmer and the unidentified friend remained until the bar’s closing.According to a bartender working that night, it was “packed” at the bar but nothing was out of sorts.“There was no indication that anything was out of the ordinary,” the bartender, who said he’s worked at the establishment for nine years and spoke to ABC News on the condition of anonymity, said. “It was a typical closing.”The bartender noted that there was a heavy presence of local cops nearby and that a day ago, the staff searched surveillance footage from that night after being prompted to do so by NCIS investigators.“We looked at the cameras and didn’t find anything,” the bartender said. “I can tell you that nothing happened inside the bar.”While the bar was cleared out and people spilled out in the street, Palmer’s friend was subsequently arrested for “a low-key disorderly conduct,” his mother said. She’s still trying to learn the identity of the arrested Marine.Attempts by ABC News to speak with Honolulu Police Department about the arrest of the unidentified Marine or the case involving Palmer were not immediately successful.A detective with the department refused to share any details about the Marine’s arrest or Palmer’s missing case, saying, “it’s an ongoing investigation.”Diane said that she learned from NCIS investigators that her son then summoned two different Lyft cars.“My son ordered the Lyft to go back to base,” Diane said. “It was canceled.”She was then told her son then was three blocks away and ordered a second Lyft, which also was canceled, a fact confirmed by her conversations with detectives and her son’s bank records.“He canceled the second one, and it’s on his bank account at 4:28,” she said, referring to the morning time stamp.She said that afterward Palmer’s cell phone “went dead.”All Diane can do is hope.“We’re very close,” she said. “We’ve always been like that. And I know his heart is breaking for my heart. I just know it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Comments are closed. Despitethe frequently stated mantra that ‘people are a business’ greatest asset’, nosingle approach exists that enables organisations to consistently quantify thebenefits of their investments in people. Asa business leader, human capital sits at the top of my agenda at Deloitte &Touche. Yet questions of how to assess it can be very difficult to answer, andI’m sure I am not alone in this predicament. Whilethe complexities of how to put a ‘balance sheet value’ on people-related issueshave attracted attention at board level, there is limited consensus as to howthis challenge should be addressed. Human capital is presently the only majorasset that UK listed companies are not required to update their stakeholders onin their annual reports. But in a recent speech, the Secretary of State forTrade and Industry, Patricia Hewitt, suggested such statutory requirements maynot be far away. Researchpublished today by Deloitte & Touche and Personnel Today suggests thatbefore the Government introduces such requirements, techniques for consistentlymeasuring human capital, and the ways in which boards understand and apply suchtechniques, will have to improve significantly.Theresearch examines how companies measure human capital and how these results areinterpreted and used. While the findings show that firms are beginning toembrace this challenge, they also demonstrate that companies are still unclearon how to use these outputs to reliably assist the decision-making process.Theresearch shows that businesses believe in the importance of measuring humancapital, but I expect many would struggle to find a convincing, user friendlyand practical means of doing so. More than half the companies surveyed saytheir most frequently used measurement methods are ineffective, which couldwell explain why current approaches appear to unsuccessful at driving changesin management behaviour.Butthe benefits of meeting these challenges are also clear. A recognised methodthat puts a financial value on the effectiveness of people management willhighlight its real business impact on the company as a whole, and combined withthe consequent interest from stakeholders that this will generate, the boardwill need to quickly develop its understanding of this area. Deloitte& Touche is currently forming a consortium to work towards developing asolution that meets the needs of companies and their stakeholders. Oncea standard is established, the board must partner with HR to improve theorganisation’s return on investment in people, and to increase its competitiveadvantage in the marketplace.
