While dismissing the said revision petitions, the court of Additional Sessions Judge Sandeep Yadav noted that the evidence collected during the investigation is wholly insufficient to frame the charge against the Respondents. The said criminal revision petitions were moved against the order dated 24/08/20 of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate wherein the respondent foreign nationals were discharged of all the charges against them. The State had invoked the FIR registered against the respondents wherein they’ve been charged under section 14 (b) of Foreigners Act, Section 3 of the Epidemic Diseases Act 1897, Section 51 of the Disaster Management Act and Section 188/269/270/271/120B of the Indian Penal Code. While discharging the respondents, the CMM had noted that the entire chargesheet and documents attached thereto neither showed their presence nor participation in the Markez during the relevant period. The CMM had further noted that: ‘there is no document on record to suggest that respondent was one of the participants who was involved in Tablighi work. It was further observed that name of the respondent is not specifically mentioned either in the copy of the register seized or in the list of SDM providing the details of the persons who were sent from Markaz either to the hospital or Quarantine Centers or the list of persons who were part of Markez and were tested for Covid-19.’ While upholding the order of the CMM, the present court observed that: ‘In the present case, no vital information was extracted from the respondent which could form the basis for carving out an exception to the general provision about inadmissibility of confession made in police custody.No admission of any vital fact was made by the respondent in response to the questionnaire and hence, the reference to Section 58 of Indian Evidence Act is of no consequence.’ The Respondents in the present matter were represented by Ms Ashima Mandla and Ms Mandakini SinghClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Sold On Gold Coast: the best spots to bag a bargain in the south

first_img 2. Varsity Lakes Despite being on the beachfront, Tugun is considered cheap in comparison to some of its neighbouring suburbs.Tugun is so laid back its residents have given its already short title a nickname.Fondly known as Tugz (pronounced choogs), the beachside suburb on the southern Gold Coast is popular because of its village vibe. Located on the NSW and Queensland border, it is a small suburb nestled between Currumbin and Bilinga.It has arguably one of the best beaches but surprisingly, that’s not what people love most about it.The real charm is in its quiet streets, cafe culture and fish and chip shops.A number of fancy new restaurants and quirky cafes have popped up in Tugun Village over the past few years while a major upgrade to Golden Four Drive has made it easier and safer for cyclists and pedestrians to use. Despite being 15km from bustling suburbs like Broadbeach, Tugun has managed to retain the “old Gold Coast feel”.It has a diverse range of properties on offer, including old beach shacks and luxury homes.Several multimillion-dollar sales have been recorded in the suburb within the past year.An original two-storey beach house fetched $2.95 million at auction last year while an elevated house with sweeping views of the coastline sold for $1.135 million in April. Million-dollar homes aside, it is one of the Coast’s more affordable suburbs for both houses and apartments, according to latest CoreLogic data. Its median house price reached $635,000 following 2.4 per cent growth in the past year and 16 per cent in the past three years.The median unit price is $460,750 following 2 per cent growth in the past year and 15.9 per cent in the past three years.As Tugun is right next to the Gold Coast Airport, it is often the first suburb new arrivals see when they head north towards Surfers Paradise. 1. Mudgeeraba MORE NEWS: The three most expensive suburbs at the heart of the GC Median house price: $635,000 Median house rent: $620/weekMedian unit price: $460,750 Median unit rent: $455/weekAverage days on market: 37.5 Average hold period: 13 yearsPopulation: 6588Average weekly household income: $1288Median age: 41 Median house price: $599,000 Median house rent: $580/weekMedian unit price: $419,000Median unit rent: $460/weekAverage days on market: 44 Average hold period: 9 yearsPopulation: 15,026 Average weekly household income: $1363Median age: 34 Varsity Lakes, which is one of the south’s main activity hubs, has a lot to offer residents on the hunt for a bargain.Varsity Lakes has come a long way since its days as Stephens Swamp. Originally named after former Brisbane mayor and owner of the area Thomas Stephens in the 1860s, the suburb was renamed in 2003. Its reputation needed a reboot as it was known as a low socio-economic area — it now has a much more up-market image.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoThe $2 billion masterplanned community, which was developed by Lendlease in 1999, had an aim of creating a mixed-used area with an emphasis on job creation and blending residential, commercial and education in a village setting. The urban village feel of the area steered clear of the traditional high rise, beaches and bikinis vibe the Gold Coast is known for. Open space was at the forefront of the design with the area offering an 80ha lake, 56ha of open space and 20km of walking and bike tracks. The housing estates were built around Lake Orr, so those wanting to buy a relatively new waterfront home might find what they are after in Varsity Lakes. The suburb has a $599,000 median house price. Bond University also sits on the shores of Lake Orr and was Australia’s first private non-profit university. There are about 1000 staff and 4000 students who attend the institution. It has a focus on society, design, health sciences, medicine, business and law degrees. Adjacent to the university is the acclaimed Varsity College which caters from prep to Year 12. Varsity Lakes is nestled between Burleigh Waters and Robina with easy access to the Gold Coast’s second-largest shopping complex, Robina Town Centre. Two waterfront suburbs are among the three most affordable in the city’s south.THE city’s southern suburbs are renowned for their pristine beaches, village-like communities and laid-back vibes — that’s why so many people want to live there.But where are the best places to buy a property that won’t break the bank?Mudgeeraba, Varsity Lakes and Tugun were the three most affordable areas in the Gold Coast’s south as featured in the Bulletin’s Sold On Gold Coast — the Glitter Strip’s ultimate property guide.This is what makes these areas not only affordable but highly sought after. 3.

It is one of the Coast’s larger suburbs bordered by Tallai, Worongary, Merrimac, Robina, Varsity Lakes, Reedy Creek and Bonogin. Located on the western side of the Pacific Motorway, it seems like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Glitter Strip. But it is actually becoming more popular among younger demographics because it is only a short drive to the beach without the hefty price tag. With a median house price of $591,000, the suburb appeals to first-home buyers, growing families and investors.It has a mix of residential and small acreage properties.The area has long been popular among people who enjoy the country lifestyle.Like many country towns, it has a beloved old hotel that has stood for more than 100 years.The original Mudgeeraba Hotel, now known as the Wallaby Hotel, still remains today despite being built in 1884.It is also home to the Mudgeeraba Farmers’ Market, which is believed to be the oldest on the Gold Coast.Held at the Mudgeeraba Showgrounds on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, the market offers produce, coffee, jams, cheese, wine and baked goods from around the area. The suburb also has quaint restaurants, bed and breakfasts, cafes and art and craft galleries.One of the suburb’s major attractions is the annual Mudgeeraba Show, which showcases everything the area has to offer.As it is at the foot of the Hinterland, many people often travel through the suburb to get to Springbrook National Park.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge returns to training

first_imgLiverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has taken another step towards regaining full fitness by training with the rest of his team-mates. However, Press Association Sport understands the England international trained with the full group – those not involved in internationals – at Melwood on Tuesday afternoon. It was the first time Sturridge had been part of the group since a collision with Jordon Ibe in training sidelined him in mid-October. He was monitored by medical staff during and after the session to assess how he reacted and they will continue to keep a close eye on him for the rest of the week. Klopp has resisted the temptation to try to rush back the striker – despite injuries to Danny Ings (knee ligaments) and Christian Benteke which left him with the raw Divock Origi as his only fit striker at one stage. Therefore the German is unlikely to take any chances with Sturridge ahead of Saturday’s trip to Premier League leaders Manchester City although another step forward in the player’s scheduled recovery can only be positive. Injury problems continue to beset Klopp, with captain Jordan Henderson still working his way back to fitness after an operation on a broken bone in his foot which has prevented him working with the new manager also, but he was boosted by the return to training yesterday of midfielder James Milner and winger Ibe after hamstring and knee injuries ruled them out of international duty. The 26-year-old has yet to be available to Jurgen Klopp after sustaining a knee injury on the eve of the new manager’s first match at Tottenham on October 17. Sturridge has played just 242 minutes across three matches this season after recovering from hip surgery which ruled him out of the final six weeks of the previous campaign. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Define Pseudoscience

first_imgA couple of articles lately have lumped creationism in with astrology, ESP, space aliens and lucky numbers.  How valid is this grouping?    Randolph E. Schmid (Associated Press; see Live Science) conveyed statistics presented by Jon Miller (Michigan State U) and a panel of researchers at an AAAS meeting in San Francisco this past Saturday.  “People in the U.S. know more about basic science today than they did two decades ago, good news that researchers say is tempered by an unsettling growth in the belief in pseudoscience such as astrology and visits by extraterrestrial aliens,” Schmid began.  A few sentences down, he adds, “In addition, these researchers noted an increase in college students who report they are ‘unsure’ about creationism as compared with evolution.”    The association was strengthened farther down in the article, when a paragraph about bigfoot and aliens was followed by a paragraph about creationism.  “But there also has been a drop in the number of people who believe evolution correctly explains the development of life on Earth and an increase in those who believe mankind was created about 10,000 years ago,” Schmid writes, presuming to lump these all together into the box labeled pseudoscience.  “Miller said a second major negative factor to scientific literacy was religious fundamentalism and aging.”  These “negative” factors, Schmid contends, could be offset by the “positive” influences of college education, “informal science learning through the media,” and having children at home.    Seth Shostak of the SETI Institute also chimed in on this theme.  On Space.com he asked, “When Did Science Become the Enemy?”  Shostak deplored the portrayal of scientists as dark, mysterious, suspicious villains, and explored why the media become so infatuated with unscientific heroes and celebrities.  “We’re most interested in people, in the same way that click beetles are most interested in click beetles,” he explained.  “That’s evolution.”  Evolution is also responsible for human attraction to heroes, he argued.  “Heroes, in other words, have survival value.  The peculiar thing is that American heroes aren’t often very good at science.”    So what does science really represent, in contrast to pseudoscience and pop culture?  Shostak did not attack creationism directly in the article.  The association was implicit, though: the lead illustration prominently displays icons of science: a spiral galaxy and other astronomical objects, an equation, and the fatherly portrait of Charles Darwin.  See also last week’s entry by another SETI Institute leader, Edna Devore, who advocated celebration of Darwin Day and Evolution Sunday as ways of honoring science (02/11/2007).In both of these articles is the overt or covert message that if you love science, you will love Charlie, and if you are a fool or afraid of science, you will mistrust the Father Figure of Evolution and run to your security blanket, the Bible.  This is how propaganda works, particularly the use of association and loaded words.  The goal is to achieve a subliminal response without making you think.  The message is: the real heroes in the world are the Charlie-worshipers, and the poopheads are the creationists and other pseudoscientists like UFO chasers who live by their daily horoscope or read the Bible.    Surely many creationists reading this will say, “Wait a minute; I abhor astrology.  I love science.  I have nothing but contempt for the supermarket tabloids about space aliens and ESP.”  Many may have degrees in science, teach science, or sit on public school boards.  How did you get lumped into the same pool with fruitcakes?  The answer is: it’s a trick.  It’s an escape from debating and understanding the issues in the creation-evolution controversy.    We could play that game, too.  In fact, how would they like it if we launched a campaign to call Darwinism pseudoscience?  We could certainly make a good case.  We could call attention to the fact that it is held to with religious ardor despite being repeatedly falsified, engages in mythmaking, dogmatizes its victims and relies on irrationality for its maintenance.  Yes!  Let’s rid our schools of pseudoscience.  Out with Darwin!  No more Darwin exhibits in our national museums.  No more finch beak pseudoscience in the textbooks.  Portray, instead, the noble, lonely ID scientist as the seeker of the truth wherever the evidence leads, even if it leads toward design.    Or, we could go on a smear campaign to lump all Darwinists with Hitler.  If you think natural selection is a good idea in any sense, you are in favor of incinerating people in ovens.  We must rid the world of hate, anti-Semitism, communism, apartheid, evolution, Jonestown-like cults, despots and dictators.  How’s that?  Isn’t association a fun game?    Such lumpings of conglomerates into emotionally-charged labels represent shoddy thinking.  A case can be made that Darwin influenced Hitler, and that his ideas underlie many destructive ideologies.  It does not follow that Seth Shostak is a Nazi because he believes in evolution.  There are creationists who accept a young earth (one just earned a PhD in science at a secular university: see story at Uncommon Descent).  It does not follow that they expect a miracle around every corner.Another problem in these articles is their failure to define pseudoscience.  They do not define it because it cannot be defined.  Any time philosophers of science try to create a line of demarcation between science and pseudoscience, they wind up excluding “legitimate” sciences and including illegitimate ones.  There are no sufficient conditions that, if met, guarantee something is science, and no set of necessary conditions that, if not met, guarantee something else is pseudoscience.  Falsifiability, explanatory power, ability to make predictions, testability, adherence to natural law or mathematical expression, simplicity, elegance, holding a theory tentatively, acceptance by consensus of professionals – put together any combination of criteria you wish, and you will include some pseudosciences and exclude some recognized sciences.  Furthermore, there is no one scientific method!  You cannot find all sciences adhering to a methodology or set of methods that cannot also be found in non-scientific fields, and you will find some pseudosciences that use the same “scientific” methods in their work.  This is not to argue that science and pseudoscience are all of the same cloth, but the problem of demarcation is much more difficult than often realized.The Darwin dogmatists are only speeding the collapse of their ideology by relying on propaganda tactics like the reckless application of the pseudoscience label on their critics.  Let them attend to the rampant pseudoscience in their own house.  Meanwhile, let all who honor science practice its values: make the best case you can based on evidence, and, humbly recognizing the limitations of science and the human propensity for self-deception, be willing to follow the evidence where it leads.  (One might notice that these values are not entirely foreign to theologians or practitioners in most other scholarly disciplines.) (Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Cavs begin coaching search after parting ways with Drew

first_imgAlthough expected, Drew’s departure creates more work for a franchise that will sit out the NBA playoffs this season following a four-year run in the Finals with James.The 61-year-old Drew met with general manager Koby Altman, and the two decided it was best if they went in separate directions. Altman said in a release that Drew “respectfully declined to participate in the search process and will not be returning to coach the Cavaliers.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsThe Cavs tied for the league’s second-worst record with Phoenix, but Drew kept his team playing hard until the end. He received praise from many of his players, including All-Star forward Kevin Love, who was limited to just 22 games following toe surgery.“We have great respect and appreciation for Larry and the job that he did as the head coach of the Cavaliers for nearly the entire 2018-19 campaign. He brought professionalism, class and steady leadership both this past season and prior four years,” Altman said in a release. “All of us in Cleveland wish Larry nothing but the best going forward.” View comments Altman will embark on a search for Cleveland’s fifth coach since 2013. The Cavs will consider college coaches, NBA assistants and former head coaches to continue the rebuild Drew started.Altman is scheduled to outline some of his plans during a news conference Friday at the team’s facility in Independence.The Cavs’ job is enticing on several fronts. Owner Dan Gilbert has displayed a willingness to spend and Cleveland could land one of the top college prospects depending on how things go in next month’s draft lottery.Drew took over when Tyronn Lue, who led the Cavs to a title in 2016, was fired Oct. 28 following a 0-6 start. The 61-year-old Drew spent three seasons with the Cavs, joining Lue’s staff for the championship season.When he replaced Lue, Drew, who previously coached in Atlanta and Milwaukee, knew the Cavs might go in another direction at some point and asked the team to restructure his contract.ADVERTISEMENT Drew’s steadying influence helped the Cavs endure injuries which led to him use a league-high 32 different lineups. He also helped in the development of rookie point guard Collin Sexton, who finished strong after a slow start and appears to be a building block for the future.“I want to thank Dan Gilbert, Koby Altman, the entire organization, and especially our fans, for what has been a very special and rewarding time here in Cleveland,” Drew said. “Koby and I had a good discussion following the season and have both decided that the best decision for each of us was that I would not return to coach the team. I am very proud of what we accomplished over the last several years together and will always cherish our championship.“I also want to commend our players this season for the bond that they established, the way they approached their jobs and the hard work and growth they had every day. I am very proud of them and wish them the best as they continue to develop for the future.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next FILE – In this Feb. 2, 2019, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Larry Drew watches during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks in Cleveland.
