Brent crude LCOc1 hit a 2 1/2-year high above $117 a barrel in the late morning but later slipped. Brent settled up 93 cents at $116.35.“The initial shock waves (from a spike in oil prices) are gone… (and) we are realizing that the world economy is doing OK, that our economy is OK. It’s balancing each other out,” said Joseph Benanti, managing director at Rosenblatt Securities in New York.The day’s rally was broad with eight out of 10 S&P 500 sectors ending higher. Sectors that are sensitive to energy gained, including industrials up 0.4 per cent and materials up 0.2 per cent. S&P infotechnology sector rose 0.7 per cent.But trading volume was at 7.69 billion shares on the New York Stock Exchange, NYSE Amex and Nasdaq, lower than last year’s daily average of 8.47bn. Volume has recently been solid on days when the market falls and lighter on up days.Economic data was positive, with the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book suggesting economic activity picked up in 2011 and a private survey pointing to strong private-sector hiring.Stocks have taken their cue from oil since the start of turmoil in the Middle East and northern Africa in January. The fear was that rising oil prices could derail the recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 8.78 points, or 0.07 per cent, at 12,066.80. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was up 2.11 points, or 0.16 per cent, at 1,308.44. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 10.66 points, or 0.39 per cent, at 2,748.07.Private employers added more jobs than expected last month, the ADP Employer Services report said, before the closely watched and broader US government report on non-farm payrolls due on Friday. Texas Instruments gained 3.3 per cent to $36.14 after JPMorgan upgraded the semiconductor sector, including Texas Instruments, saying an inventory correction was nearing an end and demand appeared to be improving. Apple shares boosted the Nasdaq after chief executive Steve Jobs surprised investors by personally presenting the new iPad at an event in San Francisco. The stock rose 0.8 per cent at $352.12.Shares in Yahoo rose 3.3 per cent to $16.63. center_img Wednesday 2 March 2011 7:41 pm Wall St shrugs off fresh oil price rise Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

New man is from the Leahy mould

first_img KCS-content THE son of a Tesco store manager in the Wirral, Philip Clarke has moved into the hot seat 36 years after he did his first shelf-stacking shift for the supermarket as a schoolboy.Like his predecessor Sir Terry Leahy, who also grew up in Liverpool, he has been one of the backbones of the company for decades.Clarke, 50, is married with two children and lives in Hertfordshire, as does Leahy. The executive studied economics at Liverpool Universtity and has been a store manager, a buyer and a marketer ,and latterly handled IT as well as its fast-growing international business.Caroline Gulliver, analyst at Execution Noble, described Clarke as a “Tesco man through and through … who comes across as very personable, talented and dedicated”. Clarke, who likes horse riding and sailing in his free time, apparently differs from Leahy only in that he is a Liverpool fan, whereas his former boss supports Everton.

From the beginning the main goal was to achieve a natural and fluid movement around agreed or spontaneous landmarks, originating from the speed that comes from the relations between the body and the space, rather than from the imposition of walls and doors. Save this picture!© Amores PicturesEvery partition was therefore demolished, and once the original conditions were reinforced and isolated, we decided to host a central volume standing at barely two and a half meters high. The volume articulates the quotidian rehearsal around the room while concentrating all the humid areas at the center of the apartment, serving as a bathroom and as a kitchen.Save this picture!© Amores PicturesThe volume is rotated 10 degrees in the xy axis in order to generate different intensities around it and different connections from it. Once inside, the side of the shower has a door that faces the bedroom and a window, whereas the access to the toilet is located in the more intimate corner of the room. Save this picture!© Amores PicturesSave this picture!© Amores PicturesA triangular platform was built above the entrance to the apartment in order to generate a threshold feeling, serving as well as a storage space.Save this picture!© Amores PicturesThe materiality and the textures were considered a fundamental tool to reflect the fluid age of the space and time in the apartment. All the original textures on the walls and ceiling remain, except those that were panelled with plasterboards and isolation. The scars remaining from the demolition of the partitions were painted over in white and the inner and outer surfaces of the central volume display two kinds of white cement finishings, laying out different shades of the material.Now its up to Jaime to continue with the project.Save this picture!© Amores PicturesProject gallerySee allShow lessCarhartt Wip Complex / Craft ArchitectureSelected ProjectsCall for Entries: Design Educates Awards 2021IdeasProject locationAddress:Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

The plea filed by seven JOs from the state, through Advocate Aruna Gupta, seek a direction upon the Collegium to reconsider their cases for elevation. They have submitted that whereas the HC Collegium had recommended their names for elevation, the SC Collegium has proposed to elevate only District and Sessions Judge Subhash Chand. Disputing the same they submitted that their cases were not considered “probably on the ground that they have not completed a period of 10 years of holding of judicial office”. They have submitted that their appointments were made retrospectively with effect from January 2007 and the same has been upheld by both the Allahabad High Court as well as the Supreme Court. In this context they have contended that they are of the same batch as Mr. Subhash Chand and they had joined in Higher Judicial Services at the same time. They have further pointed out that Mr. Subhash Chand joined Judicial Service in December, 2011 or in January, 2012 as an Advocate after resigning from the UP Nyayik Sewa. Thus, it is contended there was break in his judicial service and his services at the UP Nyayik Sewa cannot be included for the purpose of computing the period of 10 years of holding of a judicial office, as provided under Article 217 (2) (a) of Constitution of India. Significantly, two of the aggrieved JOs retired last year. They have however contended, “there is no nexus to the object sought to be achieved by introducing the age restriction in regard to recommendation for appointment as High Court Judge from the judicial service cadre and it is also not mandatory, as several times so many judicial officers have been appointed as Jugde of various High Courts even after their retirement.” Citing the example of the Bombay High Court whereby 3 judicial officers who had crossed the prescribed age limit of 58 ½ years had been appointed as Judges to meet the huge pendency of cases, the Petitioners submitted thus: “There is also huge pendency of civil, as well as criminal cases in Hon’ble High Court of Allahabad…on 01/04/2019 and on 01/08/2020, there were 51 and 61 vacancies of Judges in Hon’ble High Court of Allahabad.”Next Storylast_img read more

Delete Senior Adv KV Vishwanathan appearing for Yediyurappa requested for an interim order.CJI: We have already said stay. #SupremeCourt— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 5, 2021 The case pertains to a private complaint filed against Yediyurppa under section 200 of CrPC, alleging that during his CM tenure of 2008-12, Yediyurppa illegally de-notified 20 acres of private land from land acquisition proceedings, to give undue favours to private parties, and caused loss to public exchequer by forfeiting service fee of Rs.2,64,00,000 and development fee of Rs.6.00 crores.He was accused of commission of offences under sections 7, 10, 13 and 15 of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988. In 2016, the Special Judge dismissed the case by saying that the complaint had no allegations against Yediyurappa. “There are no allegations in the complaint against the charge sheeted accused B.S. Yeddyurappa and Katta Subramanya Naidu. When there is no allegations made against the charge sheeted accused Nos. 1 and 2 in the complaint and non arriving of the said charge sheeted accused Nos. 1 and 2 in the complaint, this Court is unable to take cognizance of the offence against the charge sheeted accused for the alleged offences.” This order was set aside by the Karnataka High Court, stating that “Once the charge sheet is filed, the Magistrate or the Court has no other option than to take cognizance of the offence alleged in the charge sheet and proceed in accordance with law.” Yediyurppa has challenged the above High Court order before the Top Court. Before the High Court, Yediyurppa’s counsel had argued that he was not named in the PCR or in the FIR registered by police; the investigation was undertaken only against accused Nos.1 to 9; there were no allegations against Yediyurppa and under the said circumstances, the petitioner has no locus-standi to challenge the order passed by the Special Court when the investigating agency themselves have not chosen to prefer any appeal or revision against the order passed by the Special Court.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
