The statute though inspired by traditional values,has to be interpreted strictly, the bench held.”That the children should look after their parents, as a principle or a value, require no validation from scriptures or philosophical sources. The Act attempts to provide a dignified existence to the elderly and in drawing the contours of the power conferred under Section 23(1) we have to necessarily be conscious of the inter-play of the rights of the senior citizen and that of the beneficiaries to a transaction; of those acquired on property as regulated by various statutes”, the Full Bench of the High Court held. The special leave petitions have challenged the view taken by the Full Bench of the High Court as a “hyper-technical and restrictive interpretation of Section 23, contrary to the object sought to be achieved by the Legislature”.”The High Court, in nutshell, has held that an express recital should be present in the deed of transfer to the effect that the transferees shall provide the basic amenities and ‘physical needs to the transferor which is highly unjustified and depriving the rights of senior citizens who are otherwise deprived by the children of their valuable properties”, one of the petitions said. The petitioners highlighted that different High Courts have taken conflicting views on the matter.  The petitioners’ lawyers highlighted the fact that the judgment of Kerala High Court is conflicting/divergent from the Judgments of High Court of Punjab and Haryana, Madras High Court and Karnataka High Court and that the issue will need to be adjudicated and settled by the Supreme Court of India. The SLPs are majorly filed on the grounds that there is no requirement to provide basic amenities and basic physical needs expressely in writing in the transfer deed;Such condition defeats the Object and Reasons of the Act;The Impugned failed to consider Proviso 2 and 3 of Section 92 of Evidence Act which permits the parties to lead oral evidence on which a document is silent and not inconsistent with its terms;That the High Court wile considering the aspect of Transfer of Property Act failed to consider Section 23(2) of the Senior Citizens Act. “The statute was formulated in the wake of increasing number of cases in which senior citizens and parents were being abandoned by their own children/relatives after having transferred their assets to them. The senior citizens were thus violated of their fundamental right to live with dignity in their twilight years and the aforesaid aspects led to the enactment of the Senior Citizens Act. Therefore, it is submitted that any interpretation of the act must do justice to its legislative intent and objective, especially considering the fact that the Senior Citizens Act is a beneficial and welfare legislation. Any reading of the act must necessarily be made in such manner that it benefits the senior citizen in question”, the plea read.  Next Storylast_img read more

HR Hartley

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR HartleyOn 23 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Encourage workers to blow the whistleWhat in HR’s name was management at the Immigration and NationalityDirectorate (IND) doing in the case of whistleblower Steve Moxon? It didn’t putHR in a good light – especially as the case was all over national TV. There was Moxon on the steps of the IND building in Sheffield, unable toenter as the system had been changed to reject his ID swipecard. This incident, shown on main evening news bulletins, was a PR disaster forthe IND and aspects of its HR policies, as well as embarrassing for theGovernment. It should know that public sector whistleblowers enjoy near-herostatus in the media and among much of the British public. Moxon’s ‘crime’ was to tell the public he serves about malpractice in adepartment that it pays for. He also showed that Beverley Hughes, minister forimmigration, is about as in touch with her department as Bernard Manning iswith his feminine side. The IND failed to tell her that it had ignored immigration regulations whileprocessing about 11,000 applications from Eastern Europeans wishing to stay inthe UK. Really? This latest whistleblowing episode comes as no surprise and must concernpublic sector HR managers who can expect more of the same. Recently, GCHQ linguist Katherine Gun and former minister Clare Short haveboth breached their obligations under the Official Secrets Act and givendetails of secret government spying practices. Gun wasn’t prosecuted fully andShort not at all. This gives the green light to other whistleblowers. If they haven’t done soalready, HR managers – especially those in the public sector – must preparewhistleblowing policies. They could start by reading the 1999 Public InterestDisclosure Act, which offers some protection to whistleblowers who keepcomplaints in-house. But that is not enough. Organisations must encourage genuine whistleblowersto come forward. They should have a published policy on whistleblowing and asenior manager tasked with handling cases. Otherwise they might just switch on the TV and see an employee ranting abouttheir organisation’s shortcomings on the evening news. Hartley is an HR director at large Comments are closed.

first_imgFrom left, Arthur Ashe courage award winner Robin Roberts and presenter LeBron James walk off stage at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. (Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP) LOS ANGELES (AP) —The Arthur Ashe Courage award at the ESPY Awards went to “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts, who underwent a bone marrow transplant last fall to treat a life-threatening blood and bone marrow disease. She was off work for five months before returning to her TV job. Miami Heat star LeBron James presented Roberts with the award, and first lady Michelle Obama saluted her via video.Roberts received a standing ovation and noted her friendship with the late Ashe.“At this moment I’m filled with such gratitude,” she said. James padded his trophy collection, receiving three at the ESPY Awards, including male athlete of the year for helping the Miami Heat win a second straight NBA championship.James also won in the championship performance and NBA player categories, completing a sweep of the three awards he won last year. He shared in the best team award Wednesday night.“We went through so much adversity,” teammate Ray Allen said. “We did everything we could to fight, scratch and claw to put ourselves in that moment.”James beat out Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps for male athlete honors.James mentioned his fellow nominees, then told them, “This is for all four of us, man, but I’m just keeping it at my house.”Serena Williams won two awards, including female athlete of the year. She defeated a pair of Olympians, gymnast Gabby Douglas and swimmer Missy Franklin, and former Baylor basketball star Brittney Griner. Williams didn’t attend because she’s playing a tournament in Sweden.Peterson and Phelps also won two awards each.Jon Hamm, the star of AMC’s “Mad Men” and a noted St. Louis Cardinals fan, hosted the 21st annual show from the Nokia Theatre.He joked it was “the world’s largest gathering of people wearing sunglasses indoors” as the cameras caught James and NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick behind shades.Hamm got in some digs about former Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard.“We thought it would be nice to honor Dwight Howard with his greatest moments with the Lakers,” Hamm said as no film clips appeared on the screen behind him while the crowd laughed.Hamm noted the talk about possible suspensions resulting from baseball’s latest drug investigation has included Alex Rodriguez.“That’s OK, Yankee fans are used to him not showing up for the second half of the season,”he joked.Quarterback Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M won male college athlete honors after flying in earlier from Hoover, Ala., where he attended SEC media day. Griner, who now plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, won female college athlete.Peterson won trophies for NFL player and best comeback, while Cabrera won as best MLB player.Williams won female tennis player, giving her eight career ESPYs.Phelps also claimed best male Olympian, while teenage swimming sensation Missy Franklin won best female Olympian.Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers won as breakthrough athlete. Rick Pitino won as coach-manager for guiding the Louisville Cardinals to a national basketball championship.The best game was Game 6 of the NBA finals between the Heat and San Antonio Spurs.The award for best upset went to Florida Gulf Coast’s men’s basketball team, a No. 15 seed that upset No. 2 seed Georgetown in the NCAA tournament.The best moment award singled out 7-year-old Jack Hoffman’s 69-yard touchdown run at Nebraska’s spring game in April, which was replayed on national TV and viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube. The boy from Atkinson, Neb., has brain cancer.As his father spoke, Jack held the big trophy that blocked part of his face.Sidney Crosby won NHL player, while Thierry Henry of the New York Red Bulls won MLS player.South Carolina football player Jadeveon Clowney won best play for his hit on Michigan’s Vincent Smith in which he knocked the runner on his back with a helmet-toppling smack, then reached out with one hand to snare the ball.Helping out Hamm with comedy bits were Jack McBrayer of “30 Rock” as a befuddled NFL replacement referee and Jay Pharoah of “Saturday Night Live” as Jay-Z explaining how in his new gig as a sports agent he only represents winners.Former “SNL” star Bill Hader spoofed Russian president Vladimir Putin, who was accused by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft of stealing his 2005 Super Bowl ring.In the bit, Hader showed off his other sports collectibles, including the Stanley Cup, some of Phelps’ Olympic gold medals and “the ring Kobe gave his wife that one time for no reason.”The Jimmy V Award for Perseverance was given to father-and-son duo Dick and Rick Hoyt by actor-director Ben Affleck. The younger Hoyt was born with cerebral palsy and is unable to use his hands and legs. His 73-year-old father Dick pushes him in a custom-made running chair, and together they have participated in more than 1,000 endurance events, including 31 Boston Marathons.“I don’t think you could find two guys more proud to represent the city of Boston,” Dick Hoyt said.His son spoke through computer-generated voice technology, saying, “I can’t hardly believe we are here. Thirty-seven years ago nobody would even talk to us … It only proves the wisdom of Jimmy v’s words, ‘Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.’”The winners in most categories were determined by fan voting.last_img read more

Oceanport Community Comes Together To Meet Kortney’s Challenge

first_imgBy Jenna O’Donnell | OCEANPORT – Every August the community gathers for a big race at Monmouth Park Racetrack, but it’s not the Haskell Invitational that draws this crowd.The Kortney’s Challenge 2-Mile Fun Walk Run is sneakers on pavement instead of hooves on dirt, and it’s all about raising money to fund pediatric brain cancer research. Now gearing up for the 13th annual Kortney’s Challenge event, The Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF) has continued to grow over the years, bringing awareness and needed funding to a cause inspired by 9-year-old Kortney Rose Gillette, who died in 2006 after she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.Kortney’s mother, Kristen Gillette, started what would become the Kortney Rose Foundation in the months following her daughter’s death and to date the organization has raised nearly $2 million dollars to fund research into pediatric brain tumors. Gillette, along with her husband Rich and daughter Kasey, credits much of the nonprofit’s success to the love and support of their community.“The support of our small town has enabled us to help turn a negative into a positive,” Gillette said. “KRF is making a large impact in supporting research for kids with brain cancer. It’s all from the grassroots efforts begun in Oceanport.”The Gillette’s foundation was one of the initial supporters behind a collaborative research program dedicated to the study of childhood brain tumors known as Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC). The consortium’s open-access, data driven approach has enabled top researchers from around the world to develop diagnostic tests and treatments more quickly. As a thank-you to the Gillettes for their support, the CBTTC dedicated its initial research project to the type of brain tumor that Kortney was diagnosed with. It is the largest research project that has ever been done for that type of cancer.“That meant a lot,” Gillette said. “We’ve been supporting research for all other kinds of tumors in the hopes that someday there would be something really good that we can invest in.”In an effort to further support the CBTTC, Gillette has joined up with three like-minded nonprofits across the country in a collaboration known as 4 Pennies – which speaks to the 4 cents of every dollar that the National Institute of Health donates to fund pediatric cancer research.“Ninety six percent of funding goes to adults and 4 percent to all pediatric cancer research,” she said. “Our small foundation funds that research because the government doesn’t.”While KRF looks toward supporting pediatric brain tumor researchers across the country, the local grassroots effort to raise money and awareness at home continues, and often inspires others to step up and get involved.Charlotte Kaye, as a sophomore at Ranney School, heard about the Gillette’s story when her dancing school in Little Silver got involved in fundraising. Kaye, who had survived a childhood brain tumor, said she had always wanted to find a way to get involved and give something back. She and her friends started a three-hour danceathon at their school that year. By the time Kaye graduated three years later, she had helped to raise $22,000 toward pediatric brain tumor research.Monmouth Park, an early sponsor and host to KRF events, continues to proudly support the fundraising efforts, said Brian Skirka, the track’s marketing director.“To be able to support a local organization like the Kortney Rose Foundation from the early stages to now is something special – to see how the event has grown and how much money is raised for pediatric brain cancer research,” he said.  “So much of Kortney’s Challenge is based on community support and Monmouth Park is happy to be a part of that.”The borough community, staff, local groups and elected officials have also been involved with the KRF since the beginning, hosting dinners, supporting fundraising efforts in local schools and turning up to new events, such as the Pony Up for Kids family event in May.Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey, who met the Gillettes in 2005 when their children played soccer together, remembers Kortney as a fun-loving girl filled with energy and enthusiasm.“Our town is lucky to have people like the Gillettes,” he said. “They’ve made something positive out of an incredibly tragic situation. The whole town has really rallied behind Kortney’s Challenge. It’s a wonderful thing to remember a beautiful little girl. I can’t think of a more worthy cause.”The 13th annual Kortney’s Challenge Fun Walk Run at Monmouth Park will take place 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 5. Online registration for the event is currently available at the foundation’s website and her family are hopeful for another successful year, as they continue to fund research to help doctors to help kids.“We are beyond grateful to our community who has helped us to donate over $1.7 million dollars to research,” Gillette said.This article first appeared in the July 12 – 19, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, June 17, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest After a wet weekend (wetter in some areas of the state than others), we don’t look a whole lot better going forward. WE have rain in the forecast all but 2 or 3 days out of the next 10.Rains today will be from .25”-.75” with coverage at 75% of Ohio. Tomorrow, another batch of rain moves in, bringing .25”-1” to 80% of the state. Wednesday will be dry over most of the state, but we can’t rule out a few sprinkles in the northern third to northern quarter of the state, particularly in NW OhioOvernight Wednesday night through Thursday another swath of moisture swings through, triggering rain totals of .25”-1.55” with 80% coverage. The heaviest will hit central Ohio again. Friday should be dry over most of the state.For the weekend, scattered showers move over the northern half of the state Saturday, with .1”-.5” of rain with 70% coverage from I-70 north. However, we wont rule out some action slipping south of I-70 Saturday afternoon, particularly in SW Ohio. Overnight Saturday night through Sunday we have rain and thunderstorms that hit 90% of the state with rain totals of .25”-1.5”, and some of the thunderstorms can be strong to severe. More rain arrives Monday, with scattered showers totaling .15”-.6” and 75% coverage. Tuesday may not bring rain in huge additional quantities, but with a few hundredths to .25” over 80% of the state, we surely will not be able to see much dry down there.Next Wednesday finishes the 10 day window with showers from US 30 northward, but nothing south of there, at least the way it looks right now. Rain totals in northern Ohio will be from .25”-.75” with 90% coverage from US 30 north to the Michigan line and Lake Erie. The heaviest action will be in NW Ohio.  The map at right shows rain totals through the entire 10 day period.So, only 2 dry days for the entire state in the next ten, and they are not back to back. This pattern does not look conducive to getting any additional field work done. Temps will struggle to hit normal through this period, as sunshine will be at somewhat of a premium. We expect daytime highs to be normal to below normal for the coming 10 days, overnight lows near normal. This will not give any “catch up” potential for GDDs through most of the rest of this month.The extended pattern at this time looks similar, with a wet bias toward the turn of the month.last_img read more

Testing Building Assemblies for Moisture Resistance

first_img RELATED ARTICLES Housewrap in a Can: Liquid-Applied WRBsAll About Water-Resistive BarriersWhen Sunshine Drives Moisture Into WallsWhere Does the Housewrap Go?All About Wall RotWhat’s New with Water-Resistive Barriers When I was in Portland, Oregon, the week before last for the Living Future Conference, I had an opportunity to visit a facility in nearby Clackamas where building assemblies and components can be tested for water intrusion and water vapor penetration.One of the high points of being a researcher and writer is the opportunity to visit really cool manufacturing and research facilities, so I usually jump at the opportunity to visit something new. I wasn’t disappointed on my recent trip.Prosoco is a leading manufacturer of liquid-applied water-resistive barriers (WRBs), which can be thought of as spray-on Tyvek, flashing, and tape. Prosoco developed the Clackamas test facility with partner company, Building Envelope Innovations (BEI). Prosoco was at the Living Future conference because of the company’s commitment to sustainability and transparency in building products, and company president David Boyer and sustainability director Dwayne Fuhlhage invited a number of us out to Clackamas to learn how they test for moisture resistance. Prosoco’s interest in all this testingWe didn’t get into too much detail about building the test chambers, but it appeared that hundreds of thousands of dollars had gone into designing and fabricating them. Why would Prosoco and BEI go to all this effort and expense?Because BEI developed and Prosoco manufacturers liquid-applied WRBs for building assemblies, and the companies want to show off how much better they perform than more-common WRBs (like Tyvek or Typar) and specialized building tapes, such as those made by 3M, Dow Chemical, Zip, SIGA, Pro Clima (the latter of which we used on our house).The bottom line is that the liquid-applied WRBs, such as Prosoco’s R-Guard Cat 5 Air and Water-Resistive Barrier, do a lot better than the more common taped membrane systems. While one can question how accurately the test chamber simulates real conditions, the demonstration was compelling.In addition to the large test chamber for testing whole wall assemblies and components, there was also a smaller chamber used for testing the permeability (or vapor diffusion) of specific materials — like plywood and WRBs.With this discussion, I was fascinated to learn that the standard methods we use to measure the permeability of different materials to water vapor are grossly flawed. David explained that the permeability of a material that has a listed perm rating (based on standardized ASTM test methods) of 36 may drop to a perm rating of only 2 when that material gets damp from high humidity.Prosoco and BEI have even more sophisticated test chambers in Florida and Kansas. In addition to testing the effects of wind and wind-driven rain, the Florida facility, which I’m hoping to visit sometime, can test resistance to sudden flood or tidal surges of three to four feet.With growing focus on resilience and adaptation to climate change, dealing with storm surges in low-lying coastal areas will become more and more important. A Cat 5 hurricane in a closed chamberAt the Clackamas test facility, Building Envelope Analysis (BEA) — a joint venture between Prosoco and BEI — has two specialized test chambers that can be used to simulate weather conditions as well as more insidious humidity conditions that can drive moisture into wall assemblies or damage building components like insulation and sheathing.center_img Alex is founder of BuildingGreen, Inc. and executive editor of Environmental Building News. In 2012 he founded the Resilient Design Institute. To keep up with Alex’s latest articles and musings, you can sign up for his Twitter feed. Along with a half-dozen other Living Future conference attendees, I watched as the submarine-like glass doors of the large chamber were closed and the fury of wind and driving rain were cranked up on the controls. We could see on manometers just how much pressure the wall assembly was having to endure, and we could watch high-pressure nozzles spraying high-velocity streams of water at the assembly.The operator can turn a few dials and simulate 150 mph wind and driving rain, wreaking havoc on the wall assembly constituents.David and BEI director of operations Tom Schneider explained how the test chamber can easily be configured to test everything from plywood sheathing and flashing systems, to windows and weather-barrier tapes.When we visited, a high-tech European window that had been submitted by a local Passivhaus builder for testing was blocked off, because it had failed so miserably that we would have had water all over the place if it hadn’t been sealed off.last_img read more
