The petition is filed by one Dr. Vikram Singh, presently serving as Chancellor of Noida International University and Chairman of Centre for Accountability and Systemic Change (CASC) and has been moved by Advocate Gaurav Pathak. The petition states that in view of the announcement of Election Commission for conducting Assembly elections in States of Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry, the Commission at clause 2(1) of the notification mandated every person to wear a face mask during election related activity. A representation dated 11th March 2021 was made by the petitioner to the Commission asking it to take strict action against “star campaigners” of different political parties to ensure that mandatory masking is effectively followed by one and all during election period. “Every person has the fundamental right to life, which is being impacted by political leaders, campaigners and candidates not wearing the masks during the election process. Once the Election Commission has mandated the compulsory wearing of masks, it is duty bound to ensure strict compliance of the same. The failure to not wear a mask invites penalty as well as criminal prosecution.” The petition states. According to the petitioner, the Assembly elections being major hotbed of political activity involve participation of leaders, campaigners, candidates across political parties. However, it has been submitted by the petitioner that despite the directions of the Election Commission, many of the campaigners and their supporters have found not wearing masks. “That the Election Commission has huge powers under Article 324 of the Constitution to enforce its guidelines. Accordingly, the Petitioner sent a representation dated 11 March 2021, asking it to take strict action against star campaigners of different political parties to ensure that mandatory masking is effectively followed by one and all during election period. The Petitioner sought that the Election Commission should debar such campaigners and candidates from campaigning in the election “either permanently or for a stipulated, sufficiently long, period”, if they repeatedly violate the mandatory masking guidelines.” The petition reads. In view of this, the petition prays directions on Respondents to debar such campaigners and candidates from campaigning in the election “either permanently or for a stipulated, sufficiently long, period”, if they repeatedly violate the mandatory masking guidelines issued by the Election Commission.”Case Title: Dr. Vikram Singh v.

CFO Focus: Transforming illiquid assets

first_imgUFCU reclassifies deposits to reduce reserve requirements and recover non-liquid funds for lending and reinvestment.by: David AustinAs interest rates appear poised to rise, credit unions must prepare their balance sheets for the inevitable impact on their liquidity positions. Credit unions have been able to position their balance sheets with excess liquidity for this low interest rate environment, but have neglected to access funds held at the Federal Reserve Bank to satisfy reserves, or to actively manage cash stored in the vault.These institutions can easily create new and permanent revenue streams by transforming these funds into revenue-generating income. Rather than “sitting” on their underperforming assets, credit unions should consider new strategies to generate incremental levels of revenue.For example, $1.83 billion, St. Joseph, Mich.-based United Federal Credit Union recently faced a liquidity shortage with $20 million tied up at the Federal Reserve Bank. UFCU offers its members an “Interest Plus Checking” product, which pays a high interest reward rate on balances up to the first $25,000. To capitalize on this high interest payout, several of UFCU’s members began using this product as their primary savings account. However, as members began feeling the sting of the financial crisis, fewer deposits came in and withdrawals increased, putting a strain on the institution’s liquidity. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Fast-moving Fire Destroys Little Silver Home

first_imgUPDATED STORYBy John BurtonPhotos by Scott LongfieldLITTLE SILVER — Carriage House Way is a narrow little street off of Silverside Avenue that the casual passerby might not even notice.But last Saturday, the street filled with emergency vehicles as a raging fire claimed a 120 year old house, the home of a family of six and two cats.Police and fire officials received a call about the fire at approximately 1:16 p.m. last Saturday Police Chief Daniel Shaffrey said.“When the first patrol arrived on the scene, it was going pretty good,” Shaffrey said on Monday. “It had already breached the house. It was external.”By that point, “It was a wall of flames,”he said.The home belonged to Joseph and Donna Loftus, who lived there with their four children, two of whom are college age and away at school.Firefighters from the local department were joined by members of the Long Branch, Oceanport, Fair Haven, Neptune, Wayside, West Long Branch departments, many of which were contacted because they had sufficiently tall aerial ladder trucks to reach the house’s upper floors, if needed, as they fought the blaze, according to Shaffrey.Also on hand, the chief said, were representatives of the Red Cross, the Monmouth County Fire Marshal; and Red Bank’s fire department which provided on-call assistance while the local department was occupied.According to the initial investigation, it appears that the fire started in the kitchen, located in the northeast front corner of the house, when lit candles ignited window curtains in the kitchen, which accelerated pretty quickly, Shaffrey said.Donna Loftus was home with two housekeepers at the time and they were making preparations for a party that evening, the chief said. One of the Loftus’s sons ran outside to all 911.The fire destroyed the home, Shaffrey said. “It was a total loss.”The age of the home and its style of construction contributed to the rapid spread of the fire and the extensive damage it caused, officials said.The home was a Queen Ann-style Victorian. said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, a family friend who sold the family the home.Houses of that age relied on what Shaffrey called balloon frame construction which did not incorporate fire breaks to slow the spread of a fire. “Which would explain the rapid acceleration,” he said.Those in the house were able to escape unharmed, though the two family cats have not been found, Shaffrey said.One firefighter received burns for which he was treated and released, the chief said.On Monday fire department members and a demolition company were on site to go through the building extinguishing any remaining “hot spots,” Shaffrey said.“It looked like as nasty a house fire as you could get,” said Mayor Robert Neff Jr., who knows the family through their children and school activities. Neff arrived as the fire was being brought under control, standing on the front lawn with Joseph Loftus, as Loftus thanked the fire members and police for their hard work. “He was grateful,” Neff said, “and couldn’t have said nicer things about everyone.”“Now the work starts as they try to get back on their feet,” after losing all of their personal effects, Neff noted.To that end, Ozar-Diakon and the local PTO have commenced a campaign to assist the family, collecting gift cards.“Obviously, they are not without means, they have insurance,” Ozar-Diakon said, but noting, “when your house burns down, everything you own is inside of it,” such as ID’s, credit cards, check books, clothing. “I thought gift cards would be a really good stopgap for them,” she said.Ozar-Diakon also thought people may like to help the Loftuses with Christmas decorations. “Because they’re going to be in a rental somewhere,” she said. “Not a very nice thing to happen right before Christmas.”The family is currently staying with friends, Ozar-Diakon said. And they hope to find something permanent in Little Silver, according to Neff.“I think they’re a little a little bit in shock,” she said, “but they realize they have to get on with what’s in front of them now.”Anyone wishing to donate decorations or gift cards can contact Ozar-Diakon at her office, 112 East River Road, Rumson.last_img read more

Sea Wall Plan Can Move Forward

first_imgNo date has been set to begin the project and Hanja explained, “The contractor’s schedule, to some degree, dictates when this can get started.”Monmouth Beach’s civil engineer, Bonnie Heard, said there are environmental restrictions for that water-front area, preventing the work to proceed from the end of March until September. “I would think September,” the project would move forward, Heard suspected.“We’re concerned about the timing impacting our summer beach season,” Long acknowledged. “But we have assurances from the DEP that they will work with us to minimize any negative impact.”Long said a pre-construction meeting was planned with the contractor and borough and state officials later this week.The stone seawall dates back to at least the early 1940s, according to some sources. It was built to protect the tracks for the Central Jersey Railroad, which ran a line along Ocean Avenue from Sandy Hook to Long Branch.The wall’s gap in Sea Bright was to accommodate the Octagon Hotel, a large beachfront resort at the time.This article was first published in the April 6-13, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. “Sea Bright has identified this as a critical project going forward after Sandy because of the damage that we sustained during the storm surge,” said Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long this week.During Sandy, that gap in Sea Bright’s wall created a funnel effect accelerating the velocity of the water, with the tidal surge rushing into the downtown commercial and residential properties in the area. That surge and flooding caused millions of dollars in damages, in some cases destroying structures, and displacing residents and business owners for many months.Monmouth Beach had less damage than Sea Bright, but damage nonetheless. Howard remembered that, because of the open area, “FEMA knows more damage was sustained coming from the ocean at the bathing pavilion down Valentine Street.” She believes it motivated the federal agency to advance this project. “By closing these gaps, it will absolutely protect these areas,” said Monmouth Beach Mayor Susan Howard.The project was initially announced in August 2014. According to the DEP’s press release at the time, the state would contribute $8.5 million toward the overall approximate $28 million project and it was expected to go out to bid later in 2014 with construction commencing in 2016. FEMA and the state DEP are cooperating in a project, originally announced in 2014, that would build a new section of the pro- tective sea wall in the area of the Monmouth Beach bathing pavilion on Ocean Avenue. Photo by Nikole J. GhirardiThe project, however, was stalled by a lawsuit brought by one of the contract bidders, which objected to the criteria the DEP used to award the contract to another company, the lowest bidder, with the plaintiff also arguing the winning contractor’s bid was materially deficient because it failed to meet the contract specifications. The Appellate Court on March 29 rejected the argument, ruling in favor of the state and the winning contractor, JFC Construction, Jersey City.As the legal wrangling played out, the DEP installed a temporary metal sheet wall in the gap area in Sea Bright as a stopgap measure, according to Long.Lawrence Hanja, a DEP spokesman, said the contractor was notified following the court ruling and, “We’ll be looking to mobilize to begin the process as soon as possible.” By John Burton | The long-delayed protective sea wall project will proceed in both Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach, following last week’s ruling by a state Superior Appellant Court.The court ruled in favor of the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in a lawsuit brought by one of the project bidders. The ruling now allows the protracted repair and building project to finally move forward on portions of the stone sea wall running along Ocean Avenue/Route 36 in Monmouth Beach and Sea Bright.The project is being done in cooperation with the DEP and with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and would repair portions of the wall damaged by Super Storm Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012.Along with patching and repairing sections of the wall, the major portion of the project involves constructing the wall in stretches where it hadn’t previously existed. In Sea Bright that area is the approximately 1,000-foot stretch on the eastern side of Ocean Avenue facing the public beach in the downtown business district. In Monmouth Beach, plans call for the construction of a 675-foot section of wall in the vicinity of the Monmouth Beach bathing pavilion, a borough-owned and operated beach and pool club at 29 Ocean Ave.last_img read more

Nelson U18 Selects strike gold at Kamloops Slurpee Cup

first_imgThe Nelson Selects overcame a ton of adversity to capture the gold medal at the Slurpee Cup this past weekend in Kamloops.Jaden Dyck scored the only goal in the final to power the Selects to the U18 Boy’s title with a 1-0 win over Chilliwack Attack.“I was especially pleased with this result given that Kamloops is always a high-end, difficult tournament and our group of boys had never previously won a medal there,” said Nelson coach Kerry Dyck.Dyck said the squad banded together after suffering a loss of players due to injury.“We suffered some adversity, with a combination of other commitments and injuries resulting in us being down to only 11 players, and hence no subs, for the final game, which determined the gold medal,” he said.
