A Division Bench of Justices Sanjib Banerjee and Arijit Banerjee noted that in large metropolis cities like Kolkata, where floating population of outsiders and pavement dwellers is on a rise, there should be many more toilets than now available. “Even the bustees and other tenements where the low income groups squeeze in, do not have adequate toilets and in such clusters more than 50 to 100 persons, at places, share one toilet,” the Bench observed with concern. In this backdrop, it has asked the Commissioner of Kolkata Municipal Corporation to take a proactive role to consult experts and formulate a scheme for such purpose with guidelines and milestones clearly indicated. Right To Sanitation A Fundamental Right: Himachal HC Directs State To Provide Public Toilets On All Highways “A clear policy and road map for the construction of public toilets for use of residents of bustees, pavement dwellers and users of parks should be indicated with a timeline and the mode of implementation also being outlined,” the Bench said. It suggested that Corporate houses may be tapped for CSR spending on such account and NGOs may also be involved. The Bench further said that mere construction of toilets is not the complete panacea for the problem and the public must be educated to maintain hygiene. “The toilets have to be kept clean and hygienic, a degree of awareness has to be inculcated and local residents, particularly from low income groups, may be engaged for the maintenance and upkeep of toilets with regular monitoring by Corporation officials,” the Bench said. The development comes in a writ petition filed against construction of a pay-and-use toilet being set up in a children’s park. While the Court recognized the “crying need” for construction of public toilets for the benefit of visitors and people who live on the streets, it also expressed concern over misuse of such facilities, in the following words: “Experiments at toilets being set up in some parks have sometimes resulted in the park itself becoming a toilet for the locals who do not have access to toilet facilities to descend thereon.” Thus, the Court has stayed further construction of the toilet in the relevant park and it said that in case such construction is completed, the use of the same as a toilet shall not be commenced without the express leave of the Court. Meanwhile, it has suggested that small areas at the outer edges of a park may be carved out for construction of toilets but, there must be a clear policy as to whether that toilet is for those who use the park or for all and sundry in the locality. The matter will now be taken up after two weeks. Case Title: Atanu Chatterjee v. State of West Bengal & Ors. Click Here To Download Order Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Discount rate cuts German corporate pension liabilities in 2017

first_imgHeinke Conrads, Willis Towers WatsonDiscount rate equalisation in sight?At the same time, there were welcome signs of “movement” in the discussion about the treatment of pension liabilities for tax purposes, Conrads noted.In Germany the discount rate for calculating pension liabilities under the HGB standard is different to the one used for tax accounting purposes.The latter is specified in law, and has been fixed at 6% for years. The HGB discount rate, meanwhile, has been steadily falling, and was at 3.68% at the end of last year.German companies are unhappy about having to use the 6% discount rate for tax accounting, arguing it is out of touch with the reality of rates in the capital market.The disparity means that companies had to apply the HGB’s 3.68% discount rate to determine their pension liabilities, which in turn determine how much cash and assets they must hold in reserve. For tax purposes they have to report liabilities based on the 6% rate.“That means that companies are paying tax on income that does not even exist according to the HGB standard,” Conrads told IPE.The disparity between the two rates has been a regular topic of discussion for years in Germany, but Conrads said last year there seemed to be an intensified exchange between industry trade bodies and politicians. This extended to include the method for assessing pension liabilities for tax statements, which is seen as not being fit for purpose as corporates increasingly move to defined contribution-oriented pension promises.A key development in this longstanding discussion was the referral to the German constitutional court in November last year of a complaint about the discount rate for tax accounting purposes.The complaint was originally made by a company that had pension provisions of some €11m on its balance sheet under the HGB standard, but could only account for around €7.5m for tax purposes. The company took its complaint to the tax court in Cologne, which ruled that the 6% rate for calculating pension provisions was unconstitutional and requested a decision from the federal constitutional court on the matter.“That it has gone to the constitutional court is a strong signal,” said Conrads.She added that the high tax accounting rate ran counter to the aim of Germany’s latest pension reform, which, as per the name of the implementing law – Betriebsrentenstärkungsgesetz – is to boost occupational pensions coverage in the country. German corporate pension schemes’ funding improved in 2017 by nearly two percentage points, according to model calculations by Willis Towers Watson.Schemes of companies listed on Germany’s DAX stock exchange ended 2017 with aggregate funding of 64.9%. At the end of 2016 the schemes were 63% funded.The average discount rate crept up from 1.8% at the end of 2016 to 1.85% at the end of 2017, which cut total liabilities by €5.3bn to €392.2bn. Pension assets increased from €250.3bn to €254.4bn during the year. Overall, the funding position among schemes of mid-cap companies was similar, according to the consultancy.Thomas Jasper, head of retirement for western Europe at Willis Towers Watson, said the development was “gratifyingly stable”.  Heinke Conrads, the consultancy’s newly appointed head of occupational pensions consulting for Germany, said companies needed to run different interest rate scenarios to be able to take the appropriate preparatory measures for their pension plans.It was currently difficult to assess whether and when the discount rate for calculating pension liabilities under international accounting standards would rise again, but it was clear that the rate required by the local HGB accounting standard would develop unfavourably, she said.last_img read more

2013 Cowbell Bike Tour (Stage 10): Prosper Agbo set to win 2013 Tour

first_imgAfter the penultimate stage of the tour, Henry Tetteh Djanmah (Defending Champion) saw his title defense attempt went up in smoke as his efforts to close the time gap, for the Yellow Jersey amounted to nothing.His inability to work the magic he promised left him over 6 minutes behind the Yellow Jersey holder.When asked how he felt about what was going on with his title defense, the champion sounded optimistic, “this is cycling and anything can happen until the end, but I’ll keep working for my boy (Razak Umar) to win the white jersey”.Samuel Anim, winner of 5 stages thus far, also failed to improve upon his time, after a late rally during the 9th stage. Prior to the last but one stage, Anim had closed the gap to 1 minute 49 seconds; however, ill fortune was the undoing of the Anim.About 4km after the first ‘point chaud’, during the first half of stage 10 (Ada to Dzodze) the unexpected happened to the man, who has won all the Green and Yellow Jerseys up for grabs since stage 1. He had a crash, when he attempted an attack to escape the peloton. In the process, his front wheel got damaged, and he had no choice, but to wait for his team vehicle to rectify the mechanical fault.Anim’s Predicament derailed his previous successes choked, he’s now 6 minutes behind Prosper Agbo, who is looking good to win his first tour de Ghana. Anim is however hopeful of keeping the Red and Green Jersey till the end. “I’m not happy about what happened today, but I will keep the green and red till the end, no matter what happens.”The 11th and final stage of competition is expected to be action packed. The white jersey battle will see Razak Umar (Die Hard) coming against the 17 year old sensation Frank Awuku Akuffo (All Stars). Frank is slightly ahead of Umar but the slightest slip from Frank could be detrimental to his chances.Die hard, best team ( 2011 and 2012), have it all to do if they want to retain their title, they will have to come against the formidable All stars team, who are poised to make history by ending the competition with the White and blue Jerseys.Prosper Agbo is expected to put up a strong defense with the aid of Francis Tetteh, against all serious threat from Frank Akufo (closest to Yellow Jersey; he is 2 minutes 2 seconds away from the Yellow Jersey. A two and half minutes breakaway could do the trick for Frank, provided he is given the opportunity to go that far without being held in check.From Ada to Dzodze, Isaac Odonkor (All Stars) celebrated his first stage victory. This victory puts his team in pole position to be the best team of the 2013 Cowbell bike tour. He was closely followed to the finish line by Moro Egala and Isaac Sackey, who were second and third respectively. Dickson Poku (Victory-Takoradi), ’the lone ranger’, finally had something to shout about, after all his hard work in this year’s tour. He placed first from Akatsi to Ada.“This boy has really been impressive, because he has done it all alone without significant support from his teammates throughout the competition. He is one to watch in the future”, said Shaaban Mohammed, Technical Director of the Tour. Mohammed Aminu came second, and his colleague, Wisdom Akakpo, followed in the third position.last_img read more

Charles City men sentenced for 2018 assault

first_imgCHARLES CITY — A pair of Charles City men have been sentenced for their part in an assault last year.  30-year-old Isaac Brown, 27-year-old Eric Sanders and 29-year-old Dontrale Gaston were all accused of entering a home in the 400 block of Richings Street on February 17th of 2018, where Brown allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend and struck another man with a space heater and a beer bottle. Sanders and Gaston were also accused of being involved in the altercation. Brown was convicted earlier this year of first-degree burglary and willful injury causing serious injury. He was sentenced this week for up to 25 years on the burglary charge and up to 10 years on the willful injury charge, with the terms to be served at the same time. Sanders was given a deferred judgment and was sentenced this week to three years probation on a second-degree burglary charge, as well as 60 days in jail for assault causing bodily injury.  Gaston was given a suspended 10 year prison sentence and three years probation in June 2018 for second-degree burglary.last_img read more

Most importantly, the girls must learn aggressive attacking and aggressive defending skills.Tanzania will now face the winner between Senegal and Sierra Leone in the next round. ******URNShare on: WhatsApp U-20 Women’s national team for Uganda ahead of the match against Tanzania.

Fair Haven Antique Dealer Finds Homes For Treasure – Each With…

first_imgBy Art PetrosemoloThe watches, clocks, jewelry and silver on the shelves at Blue Stove Antiques in Fair Haven all come with a story. Some of them are even as interesting as that of its octogenarian owner Isaak “Ike” Burstein.For more than 40 years, Burstein and his wife Myra have sold unique antique treasurers acquired locally or from locations across the world out of the shop. “It’s a labor of love,” he says, “and many times it is very hard to part with things I have acquired.” It is understandable as Burstein lost everything during the Second World War and lived through the horror of the Holocaust.A look in the store safe confirms Burstein’s sentiments for many of his treasures – trays of watches and jewelry – are locked up each night and brought out daily for display.“I always have been a clock collector,” says Burstein, “and am known for that in the business. Many people will bring their timepieces to me to expedite repair, to sell or just to appraise.”One of Burstein’s favorite and most treasured timepieces is a rare, 1746 Henton Brown Musical Bracket Clock made in London that plays six tunes. Burstein has owned it for more than a half century.In a business where many equate age into high price, Burstein cautions buyers that quality trumps age most times. “Remember,” he smiles, “they made junk 100 years ago just as they do today!”Born in Lithuania in Eastern Europe in 1929, Burstein, experienced the horror of World War II and Nazi atrocities firsthand. The family was unable to escape their homeland after the German invasion in 1941. Burstein survived for four years doing slave labor at Dachau, north of Munich in Southern Germany.Dachau was the first concentration camp the Nazi’s opened in Germany in 1933. There were some 32,000 documented – and thousands of undocumented – deaths during its 12-year existence.Burstein was freed by the allies in May 1945 after Dachau guards marched the remaining prisoners west away from the camp toward the German border in what he describes as a “death march.”Although the memories will be with him forever, Burstein today focuses on what happened since 1945, not before it. “My parents made sure I could speak English as a child,” Burstein says,” and I still speak several languages.”After being liberated, Burstein worked for one year as an interpreter for the United States Army in Munich before immigrating to the United States and starting a new life in New York City not yet having celebrated his 20th birthday.Burstein met his wife on New Year’s Eve in 1947. They were married in 1950 and have lived in New Jersey for more than 40 years. “Myra was interested in, loved and understood antiques and collectibles,” Burstein says, “and we opened the shop here in Fair Haven.”In the 1980s, the Bursteins renovated the building and he gave up his corporate job in New York City to focus on timepieces, jewelry and antiques, something both he and his wife loved.Today Burstein, 86, still travels to estate sales and flea markets looking for hidden treasures but more often than not, collectors bring items to him. He also has a client list with names we’d all recognize and he understandably protects. “You’d be surprised how many people buy quality watches, jewelry and antiques as an investment,” Burstein says. “Many times I actually buy back items from clients for more than I sold it to them because of appreciation.”The Burstein’s have two children. Their son Matt is a well-known antique restorer based in Boston and daughter Beth is a photographer in New Jersey.Burstein is patient with browsers and dabblers who visit his shop looking – many times – for a present with no idea of what they want or the cost involved. We have antiques in all price ranges he smiles as not everyone can afford a Patek Philippe, Breitling or Bvlgari watch that – even used – is expensive.Burstein recalls a woman who came in to have her dad’s Rolex watch looked at and repaired. She said her dad also was considering selling it and she wanted to know its value. “I looked at it,” Burstein says, “and told her that indeed it could be fixed and the watch was so valuable that I would be happy to give her dad a new Rolex to replace it as well as a sizable check.” Burstein says the woman was shocked and talked to her dad who decided he would keep the watch.When describing what makes a timepiece so valuable, Burstein is in his element. He reminds visitors that if you just need to tell time, a battery powered Timex will give you hours, minutes, seconds and probably even the date just fine.“But,” he goes on, “if you value a piece of engineering with hundreds of moving parts that tells time accurately plus accounts for the different length of months, leap year or even the phases of the moon – a watch which could take years to complete as well, running flawlessly for decades inside a precious metal case, and will appreciate in value every year – well that’s a work of art.”Many of Burstein’s collectors look for the unusual and unique. He cites a limited edition Longines’ watch – only 80 were made – to celebrate the 80th anniversary in 2007 of the Charles Lindberg’s trans-Atlantic flight. Burstein had a chance to buy one from an owner and gladly paid more than the retail price. It sits patiently in his shop waiting for its next owner.Burstein has good advice to new collectors of antiques, jewelry and watches. “Be sure you buy something of quality. Keep it serviced and care for it,” he says. “Buy one item of quality rather than waste your money on 10 items because they’re cheap.”last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SUNDAY JANUARY 29, 2017

first_imgPEGASUS UNFURLS BITTERSWEET STORYLINECHAMP CHAMPAGNE ROOM VS. UNIQUE BELLASHEER FLATTERY WORKS FOR GRADE III LEWISGRAZEN WINNERS AMONG STRING OF CHALKVAN DYKE IS RECOVERING FROM BROKEN ARM ARROGATE REIGNS SUPREME AFTER PEGASUS VICTORYIf there were any doubts after the Breeders’ Cup Classic, there should be none now.There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Arrogate.California Chrome, on the other hand, is heading out of Dodge.Sure, The People’s Horse had an excuse with a bum right knee in the final performanceof his storybook career, never mounting a threat in Saturday’s inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park won geared down by Arrogate, who was 4 ¾ lengths clear of 19-1 runner-up Shaman Ghost.California Chrome came out of the race with a possible chip in his right knee.Thus the widely anticipated rematch between Arrogate and Chrome, who were a dramatic half-length apart at the finish of the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5, never got close to becoming a reality.Arrogate will race again. Californian Chrome will not. He will make his new home in Kentucky as a stallion at Taylor Made Farm.The Pegasus thrill of victory, agony of defeat storyline stood out in bold relief, emotions ranging from euphoric to crestfallen in a heartbeat.Jerry Hollendorfer, winner of 7,218 races in his remarkable career, has felt both.“I was standing on the other side of the race track when Shared Belief pulled up (afterthe start of the 2015 Charles Town Classic, in which he suffered an injury that prevented him from finishing the race), and there’s just nothing you can do,” Hollendorfer said. “You’re helpless.” Hollendorfer was helpless too when Shared Belief, champion two-year-old male of 2013 and winner of the 2015 Santa Anita Handicap, died on Dec. 3, 2105, after colic surgery.The 70-year-old Hall of Fame trainer is not prone to high fives after a big victory, or extended periods of mourning after major setbacks. “I try to stay steady,” Hollendorfer said, adding he had no remedy as to how to deal with the inevitable disappointments. “You just hope that it never happens,” he said, “but if you run enough horses, it’s going to happen.”Added private clocker and bloodstock agent Gary Young: “Arrogate is a great horse, but it was really sad to see a great horse like California Chrome so empty so early. Starting up the backside at a time when Victor’s (Espinoza) usually got his arms full just trying to restrain him, you could see he wasn’t restraining him at all.“Soon after the five-eighths pole, he was actually chirping to him and trying to get him up there. He had all he could do to hold his position to try and keep Mike (Smith) boxed in there.”Chrome and his legion of fans can savor cherished memories of a fairytale better scripted for Hollywood, but for the unhappy ending. Chrome’s successes on the racetrack will be embellished in retirement, perhaps to the point of legend.“Now,” as Secretary of War Stanton said after Lincoln died from an assassin’s bullet, “he belongs to the ages.”Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, he went out like Willie Mays.
